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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

In conclusion, I have sought in this article to provide evidence of Ascension from two distinct sources- terrestrial saints and scholars, and other-worldly sources derived from channeling. This information is not covered by the mainstream media (for various reasons) but there exists a wealth of credible and authenticated information available for the interested reader to explore. I hope that this article will catalyse such research.
* Very recently it has been suggested by scientists that Venus may have once harboured life. See for example this 2019 article from Live Science that suggests Venus may have had vast oceans and harboured life around 3 billion years ago.

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

Ascension: How Do We Know? Part 1/2

What is Ascension?

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

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

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

How do we know about Ascension?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Consider for example a statement by Dr. Frawley,

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

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

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

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

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

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

* This motion is variable and modern astronomy places this cycle to be approximately 25,000 – 26,000 years in length.

And It Just Gets Better – Steve Beckow

Canadian Gray Jay ~ Paul Reeves Photography – Thinkstock


And It Just Gets Better

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


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

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

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

That’s what I hope will happen.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

Hear Ye! Hear Ye! See You at the Discussion Group! – Steve Beckow


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

The Forum can be reached here:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

But I will luuuurrrrkkkkk.

See you there tomorrow!


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

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

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

AAM: Yes.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Moving Us to Higher-Dimensional Consciousness? – Steve Beckow

Awakening by Tracy Lewis Art Studio


Moving Us to Higher-Dimensional Consciousness?

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


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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

What the Pandemic is Doing

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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



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

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

The Adult State = The Balanced State – Steve Beckow

The Balancing Act by Patricia Arroyo @ Fine Art America


The Adult State = The Balanced State

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I’m beginning to see why.

Michael defined “balance” here:

AAM: We … want you to be balanced.

Steve: What does it mean to be balanced?

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

He stressed the importance of balance in building Nova Earth.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The spiritual basis of  my work with vasanas lies in the writings of Sri Ramana Maharshi.  See for instance Anon., Who Am I? The Teachings of Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi. Sarasota, FL: Ramana Publications, 1990; Sri Ramana Maharshi, Spiritual Instruction of Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi. Eighth Edition.

Dual or Non-Dual This Lifetime? – Steve Beckow

Image result for archangel michael art

Archangel Michael by Melanie Brear @ Pixels 


Dual or Non-Dual This Lifetime?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Divine Mother on Her Nature – Steve Beckow

Mother Mary by Lynne Hudson @ Fine Art America


The Divine Mother on Her Nature

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

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

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

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

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

“Transcript of the Divine Mother on An Hour with an Angel, May 7, 2012,” via Linda Dillon ~  

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

SB: How are you known, Mother?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Does this answer your question, child?

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

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

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

SB: Yes, I realize that.

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

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

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


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

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

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

(3) I can vouch for that.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Archangel Michael on the Promise of Sacred Partnership – Steve Beckow

A Heaven For Two ~ Dorina Costras


Archangel Michael on the Promise of Sacred Partnership

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

AAM: Yes, just a few!

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

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

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

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

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

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

A Basic Change of Opinion – Steve Beckow

Archangel Michael by Lily Moses


A Basic Change of Opinion

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

In actuality that isn’t totally true.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


(1) Eight times, this lifetime included.

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

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

S: Oh, I hear that all the time.

AAM: Yes, I know.

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

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

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

Audio Player

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

(4) I acknowledge that certain vasanas or core issues may not yield to changing our thoughts. For those there is the upset clearing process at “How to Handle Unwanted Feelings: The Upset Clearing Process,” December 29, 2018, at

Most Issues are not about Money – Steve Beckow


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


Most Issues are not about Money

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

What more reassurance do we need?

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

Steve: Will [my prosperity package] be delivered by FedEx or will it show up as increased digits on my bank account?

AAM: It will be both, actually.

Steve: How is that possible?

AAM: Because it is more than one payment. (AAM, Sept. 2, 2016.)

Filled with Gratitude – Steve Beckow

Filled with Gratitude

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Vasanas. Conditioning. Programming.

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

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

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

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

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

January 23, 2020 by Steve Beckow

(Concluded from Part 4, yesterday.)

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

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

Manifestation doesn’t come from intellectual or even experiential knowledge

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Arcturian Group inform us that:

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

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

They go on to explain:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

(7) I emphasize this because many times I’ve been asked when we’ll be able to manifest. After the realization of oneness, which I’d imagine corresponds to Ascension. Just a guess. Until then we pool and share.

The Ladder of Consciousness: From Intellectuality to Experience to Realization – Part 4/5 – Steve Beckow


The Ladder of Consciousness: From Intellectuality to Experience to Realization – Part 4/5

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

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

Archangel Michael’s discussion of the ladder of consciousness

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Steve: Yes, realized knowledge….

AAM: Yes.

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

AAM: That is correct. (2)

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

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

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

(Concluded in Part 5, tomorrow.)


(1) Just as I’ve been saying that transformative love has little to do with emotions that we associate with our ordinary states of love, Michael is here saying that realization has little to do with emotions or intellectuality. It exists in a higher domain of reality.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Are you interested?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

So why would I not serve him?

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

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

Who’s serving whom?


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

Archangel Michael: Yes.

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

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

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

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

No need to. I gave him permission long ago.

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

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

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

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

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

Steve: I so much know that, Mother.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Signs of Christ ~ Artist Nicholas Roerich


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

(Continued from Part 2, yesterday.)

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

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

What is the awakening from intellectuality like?

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

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

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

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

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

What is Realization itself like?

What then is realization?

I can offer you my opinion.

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

What does it feel like?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Goddess Nataraj ~ Artist Annelie Solis


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

(Continued from Part 1, yesterday.)

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

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

Intellectual knowledge is just a first step (continued)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

YES, WE Keep Focusing on LOVE! – Steve Beckow

Wings of Love Painting by Toni Carmine Salerno @ Artmajeur


YES, We Keep Focusing on LOVE!

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

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

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

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

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

I came across the passage in researching another subject.

And here I face a continuing dilemma.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

(3) I refer to the explosive heart opening I had on March 13, 2015, followed by being swept away in an inner Tsunami of Love and drowned in the Ocean of Love.

See “Submerged in Love,” March 14, 2015, at
, written a day after.

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

Intellectual Knowledge Lacks Motivating Power

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

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

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

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

Intellectual knowledge is just a first step; Realization the last

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Resurgence of the Divine Feminine – Part 4/4

(Concluded from Part 3, yesterday.)

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

How the Two Work Together

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

(Continued from Part 2, yesterday.)

Ascendancy Must Go

Let’s return now to the discussion of the end of male dominance. Matthew Ward says that male ascendancy (or patriarchy) must go and this is not an insult to men:

“The high vibrations of feminine energy coming in are ending long ages of masculine energy’s dominance on the planet.

“Please understand that in no way is this maligning masculine energy, and neither it nor feminine energy has anything to do with gender or sexual orientation.

“Actually, all energy is neutral until it is given force and direction by the vibrations in thoughts, feelings and actions, and those associated with masculine energy manifest as physical strength, the drive to succeed, combative competitiveness, innovation, sternness, and determination to control all situations.

“The gentle but equally strong facets of feminine energy include nurturing, compassion, sensitivity, cooperation, artistic expression, and living harmoniously with Nature.” (1)

Archangel Michael assures us that the resurgence of the Divine Feminine is not about a new “power over” relationship:

“The plan for the restoration of love upon the planet is about the restoration, the ascendancy of the Divine Feminine, because you are in a creation phase. But as you advance, it is not, and never has been, the ascendancy of the Divine Feminine over the Masculine. It is standing in that perfect balance, both within your sacred self and in action upon the planet.”  (2)

As the love of the divine feminine increases on the planet, there’ll be no place for the deceptive to hide, Hilarion advises us:

“As the loving energies of the divine feminine flowing onto the planet deepens in intensity, that which is not in alignment with love will stand out in glaring contrast. There really is no place to hide shadow activity any longer. When each person’s heart is filled with love, they have the ability to sense and feel deception in another.” (3)

For a time, we may see chaos, Tazjima’s sources tell us.

“The rigidity of the structures of extreme duality and control are giving way to a new flow, as the energies of the Divine Feminine permeate the world. For a time there will be chaos as the feminine energy flows through and around the borders of the old rigid masculine structures, breaking them down like water wearing away at a stone wall.

“Balance will be restored, but for a time outer events will appear out of control. It is for this reason the beings of light and love have advised those who would listen to seek the calm that reigns within the sacred heart, within their own center.” (4)

But the Mother has declared that male dominance end:

“Violence against women has been the anathema of your planet, beginning with Gaia who has been terribly abused. So yes, sexual violence, predatory violence, physical violence, you cannot have love or intact communities, productive communities, productive families, loving families, and have women that are being suppressed, mutilated, killed, beaten, because they are women.

“What this speaks to is the fundamental male fear of losing power. They know the creative power of the feminine and they have worked to suppress this through various forms of imprisonment and violence for thousands of years. Now, as the Shift occurs, as the awakening occurs, it occurs not only in men but in women saying ‘No more.’

“This was a declaration and it will be [made] many, many billion more [times] before we are done. Do not think that I do not move in each of these gatherings and crowds because I do and I encourage my women, my girls, my children to declare who they are and that they will not permit such violence against them.” (5)

The Divine Mother gives the example of western women (in answer to a question from Suzi about them) standing up to western men and saying that a male-dominated social order is not acceptable.

“Now I do not say this to the exclusion of the male population. … [In this case] it is western women saying, particularly to western men, being in a male-dominated society and culture is not acceptable. What you have created economically, financially, politically, culturally is not loving. It is not reflective of the Divine Qualities. It does not take into account the potential and the sanctity of each life.” (6)

The Mother has spoken and as she reminded me: “I know very clearly, sweet one, as do you, if it is not [in] my Plan, then it will not occur.” (7)

A continuance of male dominance is not in the Mother’s Plan and it will not occur.

The Resurgence of the Divine Feminine – Part 2/4

(Continued from Part 1, yesterday.)

The Use of the Gender Metaphor

Before we go further, let’s look at the use of the gender metaphor to describe levels of Reality far beyond gender.

The formless God is not a man and God in form is not a woman. So why use a gender metaphor to represent them?

It’s a metaphor adopted by sages long ago. Here’s Lao-Tzu using it for instance:

“Nameless indeed is the source of creation
But things have a mother and she has a name.” (1)

The Father is the nameless and formless Source of creation; the Mother is the Creator of things; operating in the world of forms, where her children use names, she has a name.

Sri Ramakrishna takes us closer to the deeper meaning of the gender metaphor when he distinguishes between movement and stillness:

“That which is Brahman [the Father] is also Kali, the Mother, the primal Energy. When inactive It is called Brahman. Again, when creating, preserving, and destroying, It is called Sakti. Still water is an illustration of Brahman. The same water, moving in waves, may be compared to Sakti, Kali.” (2)

Archangel Gabrielle uses it in the same way:

“You are all birthed — the universe is birthed — through the movement of the Divine Mother. It’s an active, physical, mental, emotional — however you conceive of – movement. …

“But, dear heart, you are not simply of the Mother. You are of the whole [i.e., the Father]. So of course you are of the stillness, of that energy that moves only through the Mother. It is part and parcel of who you are. Now you see, as you come to this time of Ascension, to this conjunction of energies, it’s not either/or, masculine or feminine, stillness or movement. It’s both.” (3)

Let’s stop the camera here.

It isn’t any kind of movement that’s being focused on here. It’s the movement best known as Aum/Amen, the Word of God, what Sri Ramakrishna called the force “creating, preserving, and destroying” worlds and universes. (4)

And the stillness is not the kind you’d find in a nature park on a Sunday. It’s a transcendental cessation of all material movement; without movement, the material world vanishes; it disappears. Consequently, this stillness would appear to us like a Void.

I had a conversation with Archangel Michael about the derivation of the gender metaphor and he said it came from the Mind of One:

Steve Beckow:  Where does the distinction of the two [Divine Feminine and Masculine] stem from?

AAM: It has come from the mind of One to assist those to understand the differentiation [between the Father as stillness and the Mother as movement], and that both are necessary and present in all, all energy and all energy forms. …

It is never meant to be gender-restrictive!…

You see, that knowing innately of the differentiation came to be so abused, misunderstood, so that, if you look to the Old Testament of your Bible, for example, you see the patriarch, the autocrat, the unmoving father figure that is demanding in many ways and must be adhered to, and then you see the female figures in servitude — it was never intended this way! (5)

“To assist those to understand the differentiation” between the Father as stillness and the Mother as movement. So the metaphor is a teaching device, to help people differentiate among the two high aspects of God – the material and the transcendental.

We’ve arrived last with the Divine Mother, who explains that her energy “is not gender based.” (6) She explains why she uses the gender metaphor:

“Consider with me for a moment what the Mother Energy is.  There are reasons why you have this paradigm, this archetype [the gender metaphor].

“It is the Mother Nurturer. It is the Mother Disciplinarian. It is the Mother who ‘course corrects’ you as you grow. It is the Mother who sees you grow into the truth of fulfillment, the evolution of your maturity on every level. …

“I am not a thundering, punishing Mother – nor is the Father for that matter!” (7)

OK, it helps us orient to God wearing the mask of the Mother or of the Father. It provides a step up as we endeavor to realize God at one level after another.

She gave a lengthy and authoritative discussion of the relationship between her and the Father on An Hour with an Angel in 2012:

Steve Beckow: Mother, you are the Father as well as the Mother. Can you, if at all possible, explain to our listeners what the difference is between your aspects as the Mother and the Father?

Divine Mother: Yes, because, as I have said, I am All. I am One. … When I am Father, there is a stillness, complete.

So she has just validated the distinction between movement (the Mother) and stillness (the Father).

This is something that the human race is simply learning now. It is the union and conjoining of stillness with movement, and how that is the balance of everything. When I am in the Father, I do not require that movement, for that is not the way that I have created the Father.  So, they are the two halves of the whole. …

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

You say, ‘Mother, how can you do both?’ It is who I am. (8)

She once said to me, “my being is bigger than you can fathom, dear one. … It is simply larger than any of you can imagine, particularly at this point. (9)

So the gender metaphor is a teaching device to help us to distinguish at the deepest possible level between this cosmic movement and transcendent stillness. (10) In this lifetime, we’re required to work with both because both are necessary for creation.

But behind all that and everything else is the purpose of life: To realize ourselves as God. The gender metaphopr helps us distinguish between two aspects of God – the active and the inactive.

What the Divine Mother said in another connection applies here:

Divine Mother: It is a way of connection, and it is a way of understanding and entering into a higher vibration of being. So it helps the emergence into my energy.

Steve Beckow: Sort of like stair steps?

DM: That is correct. (11)

Thus the teaching device that the gender metaphor is provides useful and manageable steps up in a ladder of realizations. In the seven-chakra system, the realization of the Mother occurs when the kundalini reaches the sixth chakra and is called savikalpa samadhi (samadhi with form or movement).

The realization of the Father happens at the seventh-chakra and is known as nirvikalpa samadhi (samadhi without form or movement). We use our understandings gained from the gender metaphor to distinguish out the goals of realization and understand them when realization happens.

Very much further down the road, beyond the twelve dimensions, we end our journey in complete knowledge of our identity with God, resulting in our return to God. (12) For that purpose and consummation did the Mother make all the worlds and universes.

The Resurgence of the Divine Feminine – Part 1/4

Male Dominance Ending

I feel awkward turning to a male to describe the resurgence of the Divine Feminine. Please excuse me for doing so.

Matthew Ward asserts that the culture of male dominance is ending:

“The feminine, or goddess energy that is pouring in to balance the masculine energy that dominated Earth’s residents for millennia is giving women everywhere inner strength, courage, confidence and determination to rise above their former status of inferiority or as possessions, a status imposed by those cultures and lands where males are considered superior.

“We do not mean that you will become a female-dominated society – you won’t – or that the goddess energy is not affecting men too – indeed it is; otherwise, this energy in-pouring would only provoke conflict between the sexes instead of accomplishing a balance of the two energies within the peoples.

“However, it is the change in women’s self-perception – from acceptance of subjugation to recognition of self-worth and the growing awareness that their combined power is a force for love, peace and harmony – that is entering the collective consciousness and moving your world ever closer to the Golden Age.

“We hasten to add that this does not mean that females cannot have the warrior ruthlessness aspect of male energy or cannot succumb to the depths of dark motives and actions! Some women are working to achieve Illuminati objectives with the same fierce dedication as men in the ranks; and other women, contrary to their soul contract choices, are harming others in families, neighborhoods and communities.

“Again, this is third density duality in motion, and its time in your world is fast dwindling.”  (1)

That having been said, we live in an era of the resurgence, reawakening, or renaissance of the Divine Feminine.

At the level of the individual, what’s causing the shift in gender relations? Matthew suggests:

“This is happening in response to the feminine energy pouring in to balance the masculine energy from which all forms of oppression and bellicosity have risen.

“In no way are we demeaning masculine energy or exalting feminine energy. Both have strong qualities, and when the two are in balance, they complement each other and produce the high vibrations that enable a civilization to evolve.

“Now that the energies are coming into balance on Earth, the vast majority of the population is inspired to make the far better world they want, a world where no base aspects of humankind’s nature exist.” (2)

Archangel Gabrielle tells us that “the collective consciousness will take a quantum leap into Love as the pure feminine energy expands throughout the world.” (3)

When the anchoring of the Divine Feminine is spoken of, Archangel Michael tells us, he means it to refer to the anchoring of love on the planet:

“When we speak of the anchoring of the Divine Feminine, we are talking about the creative force of love, the ability to bring into form love. It is the movement of love — throughout the species, throughout the kingdoms, throughout the entire galaxies and the multiverse.

“So, you can think of the Divine Feminine in terms of that movement.” (4)

What does the Divine-Feminine vibration hold? The Goddess Isis through Natalie Glasson explains what it holds and how the vibration will affect the person who embraces it.

“The divine feminine vibration holds such sacred wisdom, truth, guidance, and Creator acknowledgement. It is akin to receiving a mammoth book of secrets which seems so familiar to you as you read each word, and yet, you have never heard such words upon the Earth. It is a powerful time to embrace, love, and give birth to your divine feminine aspect, whether you have previously connected or not. …

“With this embrace of a new aspect of your divine feminine, you have the opportunity to connect with the sacred wisdom of the divine feminine, bringing its truth into your being, thus allowing the divine feminine to rise returning its truth to the consciousness of all.” (5)

This transition is underway and can be seen in the outer world in female leadership of many movements – against sexual harassment and rape, forced marriage, pedophilia, violence, and war, and for world peace, climate change, gender equality, etc.

Education on Nova Earth – PART 5/5 – Steve Beckow



Education on Nova Earth – Part 5/5

(Concluded from Part 4)

Temples of Learning

Ethel Mclean describes the structure and workings of a temple of learning – the Lodge of the Golden Lotus –  as distinct from a more formal university such as Tesla attended. Let me cite her description at some length:

“There is one particularly beautiful temple where we frequently attend lectures, which are conducted by very advanced beings from a higher sphere. I use the word ‘lectures,’ yet there is no vocal delivery, as you would understand it. I will try to give you an account of what actually takes place.

“It is, as you have guessed, the Lodge of the Golden Lotus, where Donald spends so much of his time, and this temple is, we are told, a reflection from the Spheres of Light. It has been created in meditation by those in this sphere who are attuned to the Brotherhood of Light.

“Its great golden dome dominates the landscape and, when power is being poured down to it from the higher spheres, its surrounding courtyard and beautiful gardens appear to have been dipped in pure gold. The cherished ‘temple flowers’ have a golden hue, as Donald has often told you, and give off an exquisite perfume.

“There are no organized meetings or services in this temple, as there are in the orthodox churches here. Anyone is at liberty to seek its sanctuary for meditation at any time and it is never empty; in fact, whenever we go, it is packed to capacity.

“The earnest thoughts of those who seek enlightenment attract the attention of the Masters who come to give their aid and encouragement. These visitors are not always visible to the congregation, though they are, sometimes, seen by some and not by others. But their presence is invariably felt by all.

“These teachers have the ability to contact the individual thoughts of the seekers and, from them, build up a theme of instruction which brings enlightenment to the whole audience. … This temple is also a great power-house for directing enlightenment to the earth.” (1)

“There are many centres of radiation on your earth that are sustained by the power from this beautiful temple of pure thought; their influence is gradually spreading, as more and more people open their minds to the outpouring of Divine Wisdom.” (2)

The possibilities in the higher planes are endless, Ethel says:

“There are many here who devote their entire energies to learning. There are so many fascinating branches of study to which one’s time can be devoted and we are taught that our efforts here open up new fields of progress for the earth as well.” (3)

Furthermore, as her daughter, Phyllis McLean, notes, “education is not the tedious affair it is on earth. Knowledge is absorbed without undue effort. The mind retains the impression it has received.” (4) This is very different than on Earth where much is forgotten the moment one leaves the lecture hall.

By the time one reaches the Seventh Dimension or Christ Sphere, angels and archangels begin to appear as teachers, according to John  Heslop, a resident of the Seventh.

“The angels and archangels who minister directly to God through eternity have attributes and powers quite beyond finite understanding. To them are committed the behests of the Divine Father. These behests are then passed down from one High Intelligence to another, till they reach us in the Christ Sphere. By us they are communicated to various unfolded worlds.

“Angels from more exalted spheres frequently visit the Holy Temple [in the Christ Sphere] to instruct us.” (5)

I could go on. But my purpose is just to whet the appetite to learn more of education in these miraculous settings so that we can know where to seek inspiration from in our own endeavors to discover new educational approaches for Nova Earth.

Astral Museums

Astral museums are very, very different from earthly museums, Mgr Benson suggests.

“Earthly museums are rather cheerless places. They have an aroma of mustiness and chemical preservatives, since their exhibits have to be protected from deterioration and decay. And they have to be protected from man, too, by uninspiring glass cases. But here there are no restrictions.

“All things within these halls are free and open for all to see and hold in the two hands. There is no mustiness, but all the beauty of the objects themselves sends out many subtle perfumes, while the light of heaven streams in from all quarters to enhance the glories of man’s handicrafts.

“No, these are no museums; very far from it. They are temples, rather, in which we spirit people are conscious of the eternal thanks that we owe to the Great Father for giving us such unbounded happiness in a land of which so many upon earth deny the reality.” (1)

I was always fascinated with the description, from G. Vale Owen’s mother, of the way a globe of the Earth could almost come alive. And even historical scenes would come into view.

Let me cite that description at some length:

“The globe slowly left the pedestal, or pivot, or whatever it rested on and began to float out from the wall.

“As it approached the centre of the space it entered the blue mist and immediately on contact began to enlarge until it became a great sphere glowing with its own light and floating in the blue space. It was exceedingly beautiful. Slowly, very slowly, it revolved on its own axis, evidently in the same way the earth does and we were able to see the oceans and continents. These were flat patterns, like those on the terrestrial globes used on earth. But as it revolved they began to assume a different aspect.

“The mountains and hills began to stand out and the waters to sway and ripple: and presently we saw minute models of the cities, and even details of the buildings. And still more detailed grew the model of the earth till we could see the people themselves, first the crowds and then the individuals.

“This will be hard for you to understand, that on a globe of some perhaps eighty to a hundred feet in diameter we are able to see individual men and animals. But that is part of the science of this institution – the enabling of these details being seen individually.

“Still more distinct grew these wonderful scenes, and, as the globe revolved, we saw men hurrying about the cities and working in the fields. We saw the wide spaces of prairie and desert and forest and the animals roaming in them. And as the globe slowly circled we saw the oceans and the seas, some placid and the others tossing and roaring, and here and there a ship. And all the life of Earth passed before our eyes….

“Soon the scenes began to change on the revolving sphere and we were taken back thousands of years of the life of the Earth and the generations of men and animals and plant life which had been from the present to the ages when men were just emerging from the forest to settle in colonies on the plains. …

“When we had satisfied our eyes for a while, the globe gradually became smaller and smaller and floated back to the niche in the wall and then the light faded out from it and it looked like an alabaster carving, just as we had seen it at first, set there as an ornament.” (2)

Moreover, displays of animals could “come alive:” and even become transparent, accordi9ng to her.

“The animals about the walls were also used for a like purpose. One would be vivified by these powerful rays and brought into the centre of the hall. When so treated it could walk of itself like a live animal, which it was temporarily and in a certain restricted way.

“When it had ascended a platform in the centre space, then it was treated with the enlarging rays – as I may call them, not knowing their scientific name – and then with others which rendered it transparent and all the internal [organs] of the animal became plainly visible to the students assembled.

“Then it was possible to bring over the living model a change so that it began to evolve backwards- or should I say ‘involve’? – towards its simpler and primal state as a mammal, and so on. The whole structural history of the animal was shown in that life-like process. …

“Also it was possible for any student to take charge and continue the development according to his own idea and this not of the animals alone, but of the heavenly bodies and also of nations and peoples, which are dealt with in another hall, however, specially adapted to that study.” (3)

Tomorrow let’s look at the so-called temples of learning

Astral Books

What constitutes a book on the higher astral plane?

“There are books,” an anonymous communicator  reveals, “but of quite different kind from yours.” (1)

Mary Bosworth explains the difference between an earthly and an astral book:

“We have books, or the spirit counterpart of books. They are composed of etheric substance, but can be read by spirit sight, and enjoyed by the students and teachers here. They are not quite as Earth books are, but are still something within the touch and sight of spirit, and can be read at any time.

“How could we store up the histories of worlds or the progress of other planet life if we only saw the present? Our teachers of history are wonderful in their learning and their memory, but they prepare the lessons given to others from the books that are within the reach of all in the libraries here.” (2)

These books are constructed by creative thought and without labor, as medium Charlotte Dresser’s father describes:

“It is all so intangible to your way of expression, I do not know that I can describe it. But … if you can think of thought expressing itself almost simultaneously, flashing itself on pages, perhaps you can get an idea of the way books are formed.

“There are such great minds here, and the greatest of earth’s writers find their powers so exalted and so easily expressed, that books may appear without labor.” (3)

Monsignor Benson describes the the mental process of creating a book:

“The method of reproduction here is wholly a process of the mind, as with all else, and author and printer work together in complete harmony. The books that result from this close cooperation are works of art, they are beautiful creations which, apart altogether from their literary contents, are lovely to look upon. …

“The books thus produced are not dead things that require a concentration of the whole mind upon them. They live just as much as the paintings we saw were living. To pick up a book and begin reading it meant also to perceive with the mind, in a way not possible on Earth, the whole story as it was being told, whether it be history or science, or the arts.

“The book, once taken in hand by the reader, instantly responds, in very much the same way as the flowers respond when one approaches close to them.” (4)

The books on the astral plane, however, are not the self-serving accounts of people trying to ensure their place in history. They are what Mgr Benson called “the blunt naked truth”:

“I have made another discovery that for the first time left me astounded. I found that side by side with the statements of pure fact of every act by persons of historical note, by statesmen in whose hands was the government of their countries, by kings who were at the head of some of those countries, side by side with such statements was the blunt naked truth of each and every motive governing or underlying their numerous acts – the truth beyond disputation.

“Many of such motives were elevated; many, many of them were utterly base; many were misconstrued; many distorted. Written indelibly upon these spirit annals were the true narratives of thousands upon thousands of human beings, who, whilst upon their earthly journey, had been active participants in the affairs of their country. Some were victims to others’ treachery and baseness. None was spared, none omitted. It was all there for all to see – the truth, with nothing extenuated, nothing suppressed.

“These records had no respect for persons, whether it be king or commoner, churchman or layman. The writers had just set down the veridical story as it was. It required no adornment, no commentary. It spoke for itself. And I was profoundly thankful for one thing – that this truth had been kept from us until such time as we stood where we were now standing, when our minds would, in some measure, be prepared for revelations such as were here at hand.” (5)

Not telling the truth on the astral pLane is impossible and therefore useless, he tells us.

“Who … writes the book of truth in spirit? The author of the earthly volume writes it – when he comes into the spirit world. And he is glad to do it. It becomes his work, and by such he can gain the progress of his soul. He will have no difficulty with the facts, for they are here for him to record, and he records them – but the truth this time! There is no need to dissemble – in fact, it would be useless.” (6)

Tomorrow let’s take a stroll to a higher-dimensional “museum” and travel back in time….

The Nature of Energy Streamers – Steve Beckow

Artist ~ Harsh Malik


The Nature of Energy Streamers

I’m going to walk through the Company of Heaven’s discussions of the subject. I hope it proves of interest to you.

I’d like to start with the nature of energy steamers, mostly according to Matthew Ward. I apologize that I may need to repeat a passage from an earlier article.

If we attract people to us by the Law of Attraction, how does that law actually operate? It operates by energy streamers.

Energy itself, Matthew tells us, is neutral.

“Energy is neutral, but streams of energy can be directed by their attachments of thought forms. The forms are actual substances, albeit invisible to your vision, and they are created by every thought, feeling and action of every life in existence. Thus the attachments are either positive or negative in nature, and this universe is teeming with both. (1)

The closer one gets to any movement of energy, the more profoundly we are affected by it, he explains. (2)

Our world is “awash with duality’s negative components—fear, warring, divisiveness, rage, greed, deception, corruption, poverty and random violence—you are at the epicenter of dynamic quaking and shaking.” (3)

These energy streamers of negativity operate according to the Law of Attraction, which explains the great turmoil in the world:

“Through the physics that governs life in this universe, energy generated anywhere shoots out into space, attracts and attaches itself to the nearest similar energy and, like a boomerang, returns with that reinforcement.

“Because Earth’s streamers at duality’s negative end are being sent out in abundance, they are attracting and bringing back exactly what they sent out. This immutable law of attraction is why your world is still steeped in turmoil.” (4)

So we’re awash in a sea of negativity, just in terms of energy, never mind pollution, brushfires, starvation, and crime.

Moreover, to think, negatively, of what we don’t want, and even to fear it, simply prolongs the time the condition hangs around. “This is why we have urged you to focus on what you want in your lives and your world!” (5)

We’re being asked to think, dream, and create positively, rather than lingering on the negative, putting out and attracting back to us negative energy streamers.

How likely something is to happen is determined by the intensity of the energy streamers, Matthew tells us:

“Energy streamers influencing a situation may have strengthened and turned a possible outcome into a probable outcome. A situation that was developing into a probability may have reverted to a possibility because its streamers weakened.

“A surge of energy may have entered an area where movement had been barely perceptible. The intensifying momentum behind what had appeared to be a highly likely outcome may have fizzled completely because a strong burst of energy sideswiped it.

“Absolute certainties—predestined outcomes—are extremely rare, and Earth’s ascension out of third density and continuing to her destination in fifth is among the very few exceptions to energy’s vagaries.” (6)

“Yes, energy itself is neutral,” Matthew tells us, “but it carries tentacles, or attachments, of light (positive) or darkness (negative) in accordance with the initiators’ motives.” (7)

So it’s our motives or intent that determines whether a streamer is positive or negative. SaLuSa agrees.

“It is your intent that is so important, because as soon as you send out that energy, it attracts similar energy, and strengthens yours….

“[Therefore] it is about raising your vibration by bringing more Light into your life, and sharing it through positive thoughts and actions.” (8)

When we dwelt in negativity, we didn’t care what happened to others. But here, in a domain of higher-dimensional positivity, we’re called upon to watch our intentions or motivations.

That’s a level of awareness deeper than I’ve been operating at so far.

Education on Nova Earth – Part 2/5 – Steve Beckow

Earth ~ Artist Svetlana Tikhonova


Education on Nova Earth – Part 2/5

(Continued from Part 1)

Children on the higher astral planes are not forced into a numbing conformity or a path that fulfills their parents’ wishes for them, Phyllis McLean tells us:

“[Children] are not influenced by the selfish desires of others to force them onto an uncongenial path, as so often happens on earth, when parents or guardians often  endeavour to fulfil their own ambitions or retrieve lost opportunities through the lives of others.

“Here, the individuality of the soul is recognized and children are encouraged to make their own decisions. In this way, they achieve fuller development because they open their minds to the forces of inspiration without becoming clouded, of confused by the conflicting desires and emotions of others.” (1)

Consequently education is not tedious, as it can be on our plane of existence.

“Education is not the tedious affair it is on Earth. Knowledge is absorbed without undue effort. The mind retains the impression it has received. You would be amazed at the extent of the knowledge of quite small children on this sphere. Yet they are in no way precocious. Laughter and happiness are the keynote of this life for the children are one with the spiritual forces of nature, which they know and understand. (2)

The young often surpass the old in mental agility and creativeness, she tells us.

“Their creative ability far surpasses that of adults for they have the necessary faith in their creations and require very little help or direction in their moulding of spiritual matter. The result may not always be perfect, according to architectural standards, but it is certainly picturesque and colourful. Towers and turrets are popular on houses. These are often placed at precarious angles, but that does nothing to detract from their beauty.” (3)

Centers of Higher Learning

We’ve looked at elementary education. What does higher learning look like on the astral plane? Betthy Bethards’ source tells us:

“There are enormous libraries, universities, every type of creative outlet or knowledge all throughout history. Anything which the soul seeks to know, it can learn. All one has to have is the desire to learn and the belief that he can accomplish this.” (4)

Mike Swain provides more details:

“When you want to study the law and learn how it operates, you go to the Hall of Logic. There are many Halls of Knowledge and Wisdom here. You can go to any university you choose, though the lectures are all very informal; you discuss the subject with the lecturer, face to face. You can stay all day if you like; except that that could be forever, because we have no day or night here!” (5)

Teachers are always readily available, Judge David P. Hartch reports:

“There are teachers here who stand ready to help anyone who wishes their help in making real and deep studies in the mysteries of life – the life here, the life there, and in the remote past.” (6)

Study is unregimented and individualized, Mgr Robert Hugh Benson informs us:

“The school was very comfortably arranged; there was, of course, no hint of regimentation. Each student followed his own course of study independently of anyone else.

“He seated himself comfortably, or he went into the lovely gardens without. He began when he wanted, and he finished when he wanted, and the more he dipped into his studies the more interested and fascinated he became. I can speak from personal experience of the latter, since there is much that I have studied in the great library since my introduction to it.” (7)

These teachers, Claude Kelway-Bamber tells us, often come down from higher dimensions to teach, much like the Company of Heaven is doing with us (but in form).

“I know these things definitely; they are not my ideas, or ‘impressions,’ for I am taught them by teachers and guides from the higher spheres.” (8)

The higher colleges are not only open to those who’ve departed the Earth. Incarnated students also attend them at night. Nicola Tesla is an example:

“Every night for a long period of time I would leave my body while I was asleep and go to classes on the inner planes. I would participate in actual experiments in actual laboratories, attend lectures which would add to my understanding of the phenomena and principles of electricity, and then come back to Earth and wake up.

“I often did not have an immediate recollection of what I had done, but I knew even then that I had an enriched ability to make sense of problems. I had answers to questions that had been on my mind the previous day. I had new perspectives, new solutions, and new projects to work on.” (9)

Moreover, after his transition, he himself became a teacher in one such university, teaching electricity to   incarnated students at night:

“I teach in a sort of Electrical College on the inner planes. I instruct many people while they are out of their bodies at night. They do not remember this instruction consciously, but the information is placed in their minds and, at the right time, they are able to use it.” (10)

Tomorrow let’s look at some of the teaching aids on this higher plane. What constitutes a book on the astral plane, for instance? What might we find in a museum?

Understanding the Constructed Self – Steve Beckow

Heart In Hand Milagro Canvas Print by Sabina Espinet


Understanding the Constructed Self

The “download” link has been fixed. Thanks go to Audrey.

Please accept  a combined Christmas and New Years gift from us to you – a new book on the constructed self.

What’s the importance of knowing about the constructed self?

The constructed self is the view of ourselves – also called a mask, act, or self-image – we try to sell to others. When we win their “acceptance,” we could say that others “bought our act.”

It’s part of the way we manage our affairs on the Third and Fourth Dimensions. It bears no resemblance to how things are handled in the higher dimensions.

This book goes into the subject in detail, including the cost we pay by buying into our own act, so to speak.

We hope you enjoy it. We hope it helps to understand the subject and emerge from the constructed self.

Introduction to Understanding the Constructed Self

What is the “constructed self”?

It’s a construction in thought, preserved in memory, that we allow to define ourselves and influence our response to matters.

The concept of a constructed self covers much the same territory as notions like personality, identity, self-concept, self-image, etc.

The only difference is that I’m emphasizing that it’s something we ourselves construct and at times deconstruct and reconstruct.

It’s not a static phenomenon, but a dynamic. It changes as our thoughts decide. If we have a committed thought such as “I’m never going to do that again,” it alters the constructed self, removing an element of its construction or putting up a “No Access” sign.

We’re constantly altering our constructed self. And indeed we’re being asked to alter it by letting go of our negative ways of being that we’ve “sold” to ourselves and others and embracing the higher-dimensionally positive or divine qualities.

Let me focus for a moment on the “self” we construct.

It seems to me that a chord is struck whenever we focus on either the self, the Self, or the No-Self.

Anything that turns our attention to us is felt keenly. It’s as if someone is wanting to wake us up to the desirability of turning our attention inwards. Not in a lethargic way but in a very attentive way.

Krishnamurti once said that liberation came from observation of the ways of the self. I think he meant the small-s self. I hope this book helps with your observation.

Some elements of our constructed self are shared across our culture or subculture and others are not. An example of a culture-wide behavior pattern is the survival-oriented way we see ourselves.

As long as we operate within 3/4D, we tend to represent ourselves as separate-seeming selves competing for scarce resources with other separate-seeming selves. It’s up to us to ensure our own survival and it’s survival of the fittest.

In this environment, we feel a need to sell ourselves to others – or at least an image of ourselves, a mask we wear or a way we act – in order to win friends, influence people, and garner allies.

To do this, we construct a self – or rather a self-image – a view of ourselves, which we sell to others.

We represent ourselves in the best possible light. What we call “acceptance,” one could think of as “buying our act” or “not exposing our mask.”

Those who buy our act become our friends. Those who don’t are not.

I watch myself carve out an image of myself as generous. My father and grandfather had issues with money which I address by being the opposite. I’m busily crafting for myself the identity, mask, or constructed self of a generous person.

My hope is that you buy seeing me that way.

All of these actions take place within the Third and Fourth Dimensions. The constructed self is not a part of the higher dimensions.

It isn’t part because the love that’s felt there drowns all thoughts of harm or conflict. We experience abundance, feel our oneness in love, and have none but harmonious thoughts.

What that means for us is that, if we want to experience the higher dimensions, we may want to drop our mask, self-image, or constructed self.

Any construction added to our unstructured Self is overburden, an obstacle to our realization of it that would later need to be removed.

The pure and innocent Self lies deeper than the level of consciousness of the constructed self. Way beneath it.

Transparency, honesty, awareness – again, the divine qualities – are what will solve any discomfort we feel from dropping this way of being.

I hope these essays pinpoint for you what the constructed self is and how to recognize it. I hope they raise the subject to awareness and make it comprehensible.

And I hope they help you then let go of yours after experiencing it to your satisfaction. I hope they help me to let go of mine as well.

Or not. Everyone has free will.

But the constructed self will be up to awareness.

A centipede, when its hundred legs are raised to awareness, can no longer walk. It trips over itself.

We, when a behaviour pattern is raised to awareness, can no longer run it outside our awareness. It now must run within our awareness, which makes it ripe for alteration.

Education on Nova Earth – Part 1/5 – Steve Beckow

Education on Nova Earth – Part 1/5

As we contemplate building Nova Earth, we look to higher-dimensional planes to guide us on possible directions to pursue.

I’ve already given one suggested educational curriculum taken from an ascended source. (1)

I’d now like to take some pointers on education from a rather unusual source – the afterlife literature of education on the Fourth Dimension or astral plane – in particular the Higher Summerlands – and higher.

Some might say, well, I thought we were in the Fourth Dimension. Yes and no. We’re in the Fourth Dimension but with a physical body. The afterlife folks are in the Fourth Dimension without a physical body.

What difference does that make? Well, from my own astral travel, (2) I know that wearing this physical body is like living inside a rubber tire – like the Michelin Man. It doesn’t conduct feelings or sensations in the way that the astral body does and that makes a world of difference, pun intended.

Moving around in this body is like walking through mud up to our hips. These children are like nature sprites compared to us and their activities reflect this lack of density.

If we keep this difference in mind, then let’s look at some aspects of their educational setting.

Centers of Elementary Education

Let’s look first at their educational methods. Phyllis McLean tells us that:

“The education of children [here] is conducted on lines of self-expression and service. If this method were to be used on Earth, there would be far fewer cases of maladjustment.

“Your problem of juvenile delinquency would fall away. It is important to establish the knowledge that each soul is an individual idea of the Great Spirit of Creation; one who has been granted the gift of self-expression in his service and thus has a responsibility to God and his entire creation which can only be completed by the individual.

“This is achieved with greater rapidity on this sphere, as children are not restricted by hampering endeavours of their teachers to make them conform to a pattern, as unfortunately is the case in your schools.” (3)

The idea that education is about self-expression may sound revolutionary to us. In our world, according to Archangel Michael, “the education systems are doing their best to try to shut [children] down.” (4)

The teaching aids available are quite remarkable. G. Vale Owen’s mother wanders over the schoolgrounds and draws attention to some of them.

“One especially engaged my attention. It was a large globe of glass, about six or seven feet in diameter. It stood at the crossing of two paths, and reflected them. But as you looked into the globe you could see not only the flowers and trees and plants which grew there, but also the different orders from which they had been derived in time past.

“It was very much like a lesson in progressive botany, such as might be given on earth and deduced from the fossil plants of geology. But here we saw the same plants alive and growing, and all the species of them from the original parent down to the present representative of the same family.” (5)

Was the globe simply a static display, so to speak? No, the children were encouraged to project their knowledge of the plant’s development into the future. The results can be amusing.

“We learned that the task set for the children was: to consider this progression up to this particular plant or tree or flower actually growing in that garden and reflected in the globe, and then to try to construct in their minds the further and future development of that same species.

“This is excellent training for their mental faculties, but the results are usually amusing. It is the same study which full-grown students are also at work upon in other departments here, and is put by them to a practical end. One of them thought it would be a useful method to help the children to use their own minds, and so constructed the ball for their especial use.

“When they have thought out their conclusion, they have to make a model of the plant as it will appear after another period of evolution, and fearful and wonderful some of those models are, and as impossible as they are strange.” (6)

Children build through the creative power of thought. They’re encouraged to create their own homes and gardens.

The children … are encouraged to develop their individuality and take great pride in the creation of their own little houses and gardens. These remain in being just as long as they give satisfaction.

“But they are constantly replaced or altered, according to the desire of their creators. Thus we have an ever-shifting scene of kaleidoscopic colour for children quickly tire of their creations and are eager to replaced them with others.

“Just as on earth, children are eager to imitate the ideas of others, so for a time it may become the craze to live in wigwams and smoke pipes of peace. Accordingly the children devise appropriate costumes and head-dresses and games in pursuit of this idea, the woods being dotted with little Red Indian settlements and whooping bands.” (7)

Let’s continue our look at elementary education and then go on to examine centers of higher learning.
