Life begins when the mind is still. It isn’t that life ends then.
I really hear what I hear. I taste what I taste. I arrived in life again. I’m around.
There isn’t any other part of me that wants particularly to be still but a mind that’s still makes all the difference in the world.
Though the Transcendental is conceived of being without form, beings exist in it – ascended masters, angels, archangels, seraphim, and elohim all happily make their home in the Transcendental. And they are anything but still.
Stillness is not stillness of the body or the emotions; it’s only meant to refer to stillness of the mind in particular and of anything (3D) physical in general.
Once the mind is still, all the manipulative games of the Third Dimension are absent. Scripts, acts, looks, gestures, lines, ploys, gimmicks all fall away. There’s nobody playing them. The one who would cannot exist in a mind that, for one reason or another, is still.
I recognize this stillness as an old friend. It is who I am, as much as bliss or love is. It’s my default, my natural state. And much goes on within it. However what goes on within it goes on without the mind’s chatter. That’s the only difference.
The energies have reached a place where I’m feeling urges to drop large chunks of formerly relevant and insistent parts of myself.
The most insistent large chunk is the ego.
Of all the “I’s” that I am, the “I” of the ego feels most like an anchor that holds me down from rising into bliss.
The I of the ego functions to promote the survival of me and everything I identify my survival with – my partner, my children, my extended family, my house, my car, etc.
Once survival settles down as an issue, the ego functions to promote my pleasure and avoid pain.
The ego is like a spider that has spun its web. Its web is my vasanas (core issues) and conditioning.
The ego has taken each explosion and arrived at a conclusion about it and a decision as to what to do in the future. The courses of action mandated by the decisions become the strands of the web, which the ego uses to entrap other people and render them powerless to oppose or threaten me.
Even after the vasanas are cleared, the conditioning can persist.
A lot of what we’re clearing now may not be seen as tied to a vasana. We may just think of it as the way we’ve always done things.
Focusing on the ego itself, rather than its detritus or residue (conditioning), the ego seems to me to be at about a caveman level of development. It’s strictly self-serving. It seems able to justify anything. The individual who’s unaware of its existence or leading role in some things simply thinks that “I” feel this way or “I” want to do that.
But gradually, as awakening expands, the individual begins to become a little shocked by some of the things that some part of them puts forward, speaks, etc. The “I” of everyday consciousness begins to distinguish between itself and the other “I’s” and wonders who this insistent, often aggressive, often unforgiving voice within itself is.
In my experience, the more the ego is seen, the more we become able to contemplate letting go of it.
But we don’t seem willing to do that in a thorough-going manner until we have something to replace it with, something that satisfies us as much as the ego’s drama used to, something that promises to ensure our future as much as the ego did.
That something is transformative love or bliss. Either sweeps the ego aside. Either offers something so satisfying that the ego is seen as no longer needed.
I’d like to say that transformative love and bliss are the magic carpets that take us higher dimensionally, but I’m just guessing. I’m not an enlightened man and certainly not a spiritual teacher. This is all guesswork on my part, based on my own limited experience.
The degree to which I relate to others openly and peacefully seems inversely related to the degree to which I allow the ego the commanding role in my life. Less ego, more openness. More ego, less openness.
Sages like Ramakrishna and Shankara suggest that the ego does not disappear. After Sahaja, it has all the substantiality of a burnt rope. It then becomes what it was always meant to be: our obedient servant and willing guardian in situations of purely physical danger or threat, such as watching for traffic when we cross the street or running from imminent danger.
In our case, in the matter of letting the ego go, we can count on the help of the Company of Heaven, our star brothers and sisters, and our guides and we have the assistance of the rising energies. We’ve given our issues over to them. Now it’s time to give them our ego.
In the late Nineteenth Century, the prevailing view of the path to growth was what historians have called “creative repression” – the view that our path to growth lay through denying ourselves. (1)
Victorians constructed a view of self that was based upon needing to appear to be completely in control of oneself. Any slippage was frowned upon.
It was thought, for instance, that the physical body was a fixed energy system. If a woman indulged her feelings (at worst, engaged in “hysterics”), she’d bleed off vital energy from her other physical systems and could faint, contract “neuralgia,” go into “decline,” etc. Therefore a woman must control her emotions.
Similarly, if a man indulged his feelings, he risked yielding to extremes, losing all discernment, falling into strong drink or drugs, going insane, incurring dementia, etc. Balance required the stuffing down of errant, inconvenient or immoral thoughts and feelings (conservatively interpreted).
In the middle of the Twentieth Century, when the growth movement came into full swing, the prevailing view became what was called “creative expression,” which was often described as “letting it all hang out.”
People were encouraged to turn the suppression button off, express their emotions openly, fully, and courageously, stop withholding, share their secrets, etc.
Where the world feared creative expression might lead – to the dogs
What we didn’t realize was that we constructed a self-image just as surely as the Victorians did. Now those who shared deeply and copiously were regarded as advanced and many people built a self image as the one who hid nothing but shared everything about themselves, often enjoying shocking others by their transparency.
I recall pooh-poohing the first and lauding the second. But my work with AAM has steered me away from a dualistic view of the situation, towards an additive. I now consider that there’s a place for both.
If we adhere to creative expression exclusively, we overlook the times and occasions when exerting self-control is a good thing.
If we met with people from Andromeda (and many of us will) and “let it all hang out,” we might disqualify ourselves from further interaction. People from higher dimensions, apparently, find our emotional displays difficult to bear, nauseating to their more refined systems.
So a degree of self-control becomes more and more important the further we move into working with people from other terrestrial societies and cultures and indeed essential when we work with people from other planets.
By the same token, the stiff-upper-lip, sang-froid emotionless self-presentation is also not easy for higher-dimensional beings to be with. It’s a blind or cover, and not the truth. So for those whose culture advocates hiding emotion and “keeping on keeping on,” some allowance for creative expression becomes important – at least enough that the truth gets spoken rather than being denied or covered up.
The idea of black-and-white “either/or” took root in our culture over millennia and some of us now find ourselves in the position of needing to break the addiction to seeing things that way. Breaking it may prove as painful and difficult as breaking an addiction to anything else.
However, anything that brings us out of the extremities and into the balance point of the center, the middle ground, or the heart restores peace to us and so carries a reward which, when fully opened to, eclipses whatever satisfaction we got from keeping a poker face or letting it all hang out.
Usually the only satisfaction we got anyways was from feeling right and superior that we were excelling in what society recommended. For repressives, that boiled down to not letting the team down through excessive emotional display, being “right” through not succumbing to emotionalism, etc. For expressives, it boiled down to feeling superior at having released one’s character from the dead hand of repression, feeling right in refraining from gunnysacking negative feelings, etc.
Preferring the center, staying away from the extremities of both ways of being leads us to focus on the center or the heart. We find that our journey to our center is endless, infinite. We go deeper and deeper and deeper into love. And that in turn releases our love to rise from the heart and flow through us, out into the world.
We’ve cleared our core issues (if we have) and we’re now cleared for take-off into the journey that never ends: the journey to the center of our being.
(1) The statement of the case that most impacted me was Michael Bliss, “‘Pure Books on Avoided Subjects’: Pre-Freudian Sexual Ideas in Canada,” Canadian Historical Association Historical Papers, 1970, 89-108. Bliss called it creative sexual repression, but it applies more generally than simply to sex.
I repeat that I trust I’m speaking adult-to-adult, both of us wanting to get to the bottom of the matter.
If so, then let me start in. One of the things this man started to see at last (I’m sure it’s the same for women, with appropriate changes) is that all women are anatomically the same. Whence comes the man’s desire to undress this woman, to get that one into bed, and this one, and that one? What do we think we’ll find?
It isn’t what we find. It’s the taboo of it, the chase up hill and down valley, and the consummation. Once the chase is over, I’ve heard many women complain, men seem to lose interest rather quickly.
Why? Because the sexual impulse without love is driven by mystique, taboo, novelty, and difference. With those gone and without transformative love in their place, there’s no engine and little impulse to continue.
A second realization that dawned on me is that, if the veil of mystique is removed from the physical act of 3D lovemaking, we find that almost everyone goes through the same repetitive actions, almost in the same order, again and again and again. You don’t want me to list them. Wherein lies the draw in such predictable repetition?
The draw is orgasm. All the mystique and razzle dazzle simply contributes to the likelihood of orgasm. It stimulates us, men and women. And orgasm, being bliss, is its own reward.
People go to extensive trouble to pursue those they view as instrumental to their orgasm. (1) Men at least seem to go to great lengths to attract … OK, seduce … women. Clothing, hairstyle, mannerisms, ways of speaking, money, sports cars, yachts, expensive vacations, on and on the list goes.
Many men assume roles not to their liking to ensure their access to orgasm. I remember snapping when it was asked of me (a monk by nature) that I read the Wall Street Journal to understand retirement-investment vehicles. That was too much for me. Orgasm wasn’t worth it.
Orgasm = Bliss
I don’t for a minute devalue orgasm. It’s wonderful. What I do say though is: Enjoy the bliss that lies at the heart of it. Send that bliss up to the heavens and down into Gaia again.
Take the attachment to orgasm and make it an attachment to the bliss that lies at the heart of it. Orgasm = Bliss.
Don’t mistake orgasm for only orgasm. That would be illusion. That would condemn us to driving around a cul de sac forever.
Bliss is senior to it. Bliss is the origin of orgasm, its source, the reservoir upon which it draws.
I say this because the sexual ties to the Third Dimension are probably some of the hardest to dissolve. If we can redirect them towards the bliss that lies at the heart of sex, we may be able to dissolve those ties and release a stubborn 3D tie.
In my view, recognizing the bliss that lies at the heart of sex and going for that opens up the road ahead, one road among many, I believe, that leads home.
Bliss Fulfills the Law of Our Nature
“I am all that a man may desire,” Krishna said, “without transgressing the law of his nature.” (2)
The law of our nature says that we can lawfully seek only God and God’s divine qualities, without inviting sometimes painful consequences (karma).
Bliss is the essence of God. Seeking bliss for all fulfills the law of our nature. Since we’re all lightworkers and hence active, seeking bliss on behalf of all is one among a number of pure motivations for our karma yoga, seva, or service.
No, I’m not really writing about orgasm. I’m writing about redirecting, refocussing our attention on uncovering our transformative love for our partner, which sanctifies sex, and achieving bliss for the sake of the world. I’m talking about lifting up our focus so that love-making ceases to be a tie to the Third and becomes a doorway to the Fifth.
The larger question is: I invite us all not be afraid to be blissful any more. I invite us all not to worry about what people, think of us, dreamy-eyed as we may be.
For, doing so, we deny ourselves the treasure of heaven. And we deny others our modelling of what others seek.
Bliss everlasting, bliss overflowing, deeper and deeper experiences of bliss – that’s what we truly seek. That’s what God truly wants for us, I think.
(1) I’m restricting my view for the moment to sex with others. I mean no disrespect to the LBGT community by expressing myself as a heterosexual.

We light workers are building a New Earth, what Werner Erhard called “a world that works for everyone.”
A shift in consciousness is occurring. Some of us have experienced states like love and bliss, brought on by it.
From inside these states, it’s easily seen that a world in love and bliss will by its very nature work for all.
We now appreciate that, all factors considered, a world that works for everyone is attainable for this planet.
Out of our commitment to that view, we turn our hand to building a new society that works, based on a new philosophy of life and action which we will also build together.
Never in human history has an opportunity this bright lain before us. The shift in consciousness ensures our success, if we’ll only seize the opportunity and commit, if not to this philosophy, then to another, better one.
The end to be achieved is world peace, balance, and harmony – a world that works for all.
We commit to the following:
(1) We honor Source by whatever name people call it: God, Divine Mother, Shiva/Shakti, Everything/Nothing, the One, the Beloved. We recognize that Source has a Divine Plan for existence and that our free will is a part of that Plan. We freely dedicate our lives to knowing and contributing to that Plan ever more deeply and coherently.
(2) We respect the free will of all beings. We accord the right to choose to all beings, regardless of other factors, save in those instances where the actions of one cause harm to another.
(3) We dedicate our lives to creating a service-to-others society where before there was only service-to-self. We recognize that doing so does not preclude us from loving or tending ourselves, but to add on a regard for others. We recognize that loving and serving ourselves makes it possible to love and serve others.
(4) We recognize the purpose of life as being the deepest-possible knowledge of who we are. Enlightenment, moksha, sahaja – we recognize these as honorable personal and social goals, fulfilling the purpose of life. (1)
(5) We agree that societies are formed and in place to assist their citizens to experience the highest order of love and bliss attainable. As a society, we honor those who’ve dedicated their lives to finding the way there for the rest of society. Those who choose to live lives as monks, for instance, receive our societies’ support.
(6) We honor the unity and sacredness of all life throughout the universe. We recognize the brotherhood and sisterhood under God of other species inhabiting other planets, unless they establish themselves as being otherwise. We recognize the insufficiency of a paradigm of knowledge that sees as real only that which we can touch, see, hear, and feel. We recognize the existence of the invisible and insensible realms and of the beings who reside in them, often higher-dimensional; that is, a little farther down the evolutionary road than us.
(7) We surrender the paradigm of “either/or,” the paradigm of a dualistic society, to the paradigm of “and,” the additive paradigm. We assert that there’s room for all points of view on this planet. In all instances of mediation, we seek to preserve the widest-possible, ongoing freedom and well-being of both mediating parties through application of the additive paradigm.
(8) Where understanding or agreement between two parties proves impossible or unreachable, we agree to go back to the last point of agreement, as individuals and as societies, and begin again, going by a different route. We agree to allow each other our disagreements with honor and dignity.
(9) We agree to be stewards of Mother Earth’s bounty. We agree to share it with each other and with other species, equitably. We agree to assume the burden of probing ever more deeply into the subject of equal sharing and make Planet Earth itself a paradigm of it.
(10) Whatever has been left out of this philosophical statement, we agree to supply by abstracting from what are called the “divine qualities.” These qualities are taught by every parent to every child. They’re taught in kindergarten. They lie behind counsel to “share and share alike” and “take our turn.” Examples are honesty, integrity, courage, audacity, persistence, love, unity, gentleness, nurturance, forgiveness, humility, generosity, patience, etc.
Each of us has a commonsense appreciation and an innate knowing of these qualities because they’re basic to our being: we are divine. We look to the divine qualities to provide balance and harmony in our new society and to form the basis of our common social philosophy.
I recognize my guidance as the source of these principles.
I offer this statement of a new philosophy for a New Earth as a contribution only. I’m happy to have what I say here expanded, corrected, and transcended. Copyright is declined.
(1) Moksha means liberation from birth and death (upon attainment of the Mental Plane or Fifth Dimension). Sahaja samadhi, a permanent heart opening, is the stage of enlightenment at which moksha occurs.
We’re changing the structure of our bodies from a carbon to a crystalline base, as Matthew Ward explained back in 2003. Some will not open to the Light and their bodies will not transmute. They’ll lose the capability to survive in the higher dimensions.
“The light that is absorbed by receptive souls is changing their cells into a crystalline structure for physical survival in the higher vibrational levels as well as increasing spiritual clarity and thus soul evolution.
“Those who refuse the light will not have survival capability, and when Earth reaches the higher levels, their bodies will die and their souls automatically will go to stations where their lifetime free will choices have energetically registered them.” (1)
The Team describe how our resistance patterns make this process more difficult than it need be.
“Humanity is in a process of cosmic alchemy that is transforming your physical body from the carbon-based matrix and blueprint to a precise, accomplished and elegant crystalline matrix and organism.
“Many may find that this shift is physically challenging, you might be witness to this in others. You as a human have a morphogenetic field that surrounds you; we call this your energy signature. In your personal growth and development as well as the trials and challenges along the way, you have created a type of energetic armoring or blockage. This energetic armoring has a tendency to block what is being offered. If your personal circuits are shut down because of some fear, it will be more difficult for your body to accept these upgrades to the system.
“Within you is everything that you need to upgrade, it is a part of who you are as a multidimensional being. You are here to anchor this shift from carbon base to crystalline base. You have the necessary keys to unlock any aspect to limitation in your genetic codes. There is dormant DNA waiting to be activated.” (2)
Unwanted conditions may arise for us.
“These magnetic influences have an impact, emotional as well as physical, on your human body. You as an individual will respond differently depending on many factors of your own personal dynamics. There are, however, common shared changes.
“You may experience feelings of fatigue, mood swings, anxiety, deep depression, body aches that move about your physical form from one place to another with out clear cause. You can also experience confusion, agitation, restlessness and trouble sleeping soundly.” (3)
“Every aspect of your physical body is undergoing a dynamic change, a metamorphic transformation,” they explain.
“This is happening within every cell of your body. Solar and galactic particles and vibrations are shifting your body codes, activating dormant genes in your very DNA causing chemical changes in your very structure. You are personally feeling this acceleration.” (4)
We’re getting a thorough rewiring, according to the Team.
“Another aspect and change that is taking place within your body is the energy meridians. They are expanding, so to speak, to carry a higher frequency vibration. You could say that you are being rewired.
“Over time, you will become aware that more energy portals and charkas are being revealed. This upgrade is connecting you more fully to your divine multidimensional self offering the integration of all your gifts and abilities.” (5)
Archangel Michael reviews the kinds of changes we can expect or find ourselves in:
“Your language is changing; your thought forms are different. The old areas of your brain which contain your past are gradually being refined or dissolved, so it is beginning to seem as though everything that happened before, even last year, is a vague dream. New areas of your brain are being activated and you must learn to think in a whole new way.
“Light packets of information, holographic pictures of great significance and sacred geometric patterns will begin to come into your consciousness, and you must learn how to decipher these. It may seem as if those whom you are moving beyond no longer understand you, or you cannot find words to carry on the old mundane patterns of conversation.
“You will also find that you do not need to verbalize every thought as you begin to telepathically pick up the energies and thoughts of those around you. Your intuitive abilities will increase, and you will not be easily deceived. You will speak your truth with spiritual integrity, and you will not be willing to engage in the negative games of the past.” (6)
The Master Hilarion forewarns us that we’ll feel the need to express our emotions more as we move away from our self-protective programming.
“The winds of change are upon you. … The first noticeable change will be a greater ability to feel emotion and express it. Most people on the planet have suppressed their emotions in order to harden their hearts so that they could function in the ever increasing density and these filters are now falling away because there is much greater light than ever before.
“As each person is enabled to truly feel and speak from their hearts, all that needs to be expressed will begin to come forth from within their being. At some point in this process, the feelings expressed will be the feelings of love, followed by the feelings of joy and other positive emotions which will move people in directions hitherto unknown on your world.” (7)
If what Hilarion says is true, based on my own experience, we may need assistance first to get in touch with our feelings and second to express them.
We also may have difficulty focusing, Hilarion warns us.
“As the energies intensify even more than before, it is difficult to stay focused on any one thing for any length of time. One’s mind jumps from one thought to another without any logical conclusion.” (8)
We may feel as if our circuit boards have repeatedly been wiped clean, the Constant Companions inform us.
“For as these emissaries of light continue to converse with those centers within you that govern these highly complex processes. It will be as if your entire circuit board will be wiped clean more than once, and as such, the sense of being untethered in a very tangible way may become prevalent on more than one occasion for you all.” (9)
But what we find at the end of this journey will make the work worth it – bliss, ecstacy, elation, exaltation.
Tomorrow we’ll look at the role purification plays in this process of opening to and assimilating the new energies.
Celia Fenn validates what Matthew said about the fate of those who remain closed to the energies.
“Those who are not receiving the transmissions will continue with their lives in the Reality framework that they know, until they are ready to graduate to the Multi-Dimensional framework that is being implemented right now.” (“Celia Fenn: The Sirius Transmission and the Multi-Dimensional Light Body Upgrade,” February 24, 2015, at http://goldenageofgaia.com/2015/02/24/celia-fenn-sirius-transmission-multi-dimensional-light-body-upgrade/.)
An influx of vivifying energies has been showering the Earth for some years now, powering our Ascension.
The Constant Companions confirm that the influx “is indeed a carefully orchestrated event.” (1)
Who’s orchestrating it and where’s the energy coming from? SaLuSa explains that we’re “receiving more energy from outside of Earth, and it comes from many sources.” (2)
It originates, according to Archangel Michael, with Supreme Creator. He says: “The rarified cells of Creator Light—the higher frequency, powerful new Rays of Individualized Expression, … are radiating forth from the rarified realms of the Supreme Creator.” (3) He adds:
“As the Supreme Creator increases the flow of the Elixir of Life throughout the Omniverse, it is affecting all Creation. You cannot hide from it. You cannot deny it. Your lifeline to your Source is growing stronger and more compelling all the time.” (4)
The energies from Source are in turn being channeled through the great Central Sun, Michael tells us.
“At a cosmic level, the Supreme Creator is now sending down the radiance of Itself via the Great Central Suns, which is being filtered down upon Earth in great bursts of Living White Fire Essence of Life through the Sacred Heart Core of our Father/Mother God by way of the Sun of this solar system.” (5)
Cosmic Awareness agrees.
“The energies of Spirit are coming through the central Sun. … Divine Source’s energies [are] coming forth wave after wave after wave crashing upon the planet, bringing higher spiritual awareness and understanding.” (6)
This energy is then chanelled through other beings, Michael says. “There are many who are bringing forth the supreme light of the Creator through their beings and creations,” Archangel Michael explains, “to be anchored and experienced upon the Earth.” (7)
One intermediary source is higher-dimensional civilizations, as Matthew Ward explains.
“With unconditional love for Gaia and every sentient being on her planetary body, far distant civilizations whose vastness and power are beyond your imagining are beaming intensive light to dispel fear so every heart can open to love.” (8)
These civilizations live in higher dimensions. Their energy is stepped down till it reaches us, as Archangel Michael explains.
“The energies of the Higher Dimensions work their way downwards, so that when the 6th Dimension is opened to the Magical Creation of the Garden of Eden on Planet Earth, this will begin to manifest until it is anchored on the 5th Dimension and the illusion of the Third Dimension with its duality consciousness and conflict will disappear from the Timeline.” (9)
AA Michael described the role our local Sun plays in this process. The Sun is itself a higher-dimensional being.
“When the Earth, through the Earth Councils, indicates that she is ready for an accelerated process of transmutation and change, as in February of this year, the Solar Council of the Sun, those Light Beings entrusted with the transmission of Solar Codes to the Solar System and to Earth, responds with what is needed.
“And so, apart from very powerful Solar and Lunar eclipses, there have also been immensely powerful Solar Flares that have bombarded your planet day after day, week after week, bringing the Light Codes and information necessary to open the portals and incorporate the 6th Dimension of Magic and Dreams into the Earth Grids.” (10)
The Constant Companions described this as a “huge orchestra of incoming celestial music in the form of energetic discharges coming your way by the help of the Sun.” (11)
The Team through Peggy Black tells us that:
“These energetic magnetic dynamic forces are constantly bombarding and showering your Earth home with charged particles from the Sun and your Milky Way. These charged particles or vibrations express themselves as solar flares, gamma rays, plasma rays or a geomagnetic flux.” (12)
What we regard as solar storms and flares may in fact be transmissions of light codes, the Arcturians explain:
“We wish to tell you that you are in the process of download and integration of a higher Light that was, and is still, being delivered from the higher dimensions. How does higher Light download into Earth from the higher dimension? One way is that they ‘catch a ride’ on the current ‘space weather.’” (13)
Tomorrow let’s look at the impact these energies are having in Gaia and us.

Most lightworkers are angels who’ve descended into form to serve as wayshowers in this Ascension. A few are archangels; others, seraphim; and still others, elohim.
Most terrestrials are angelic in origin but are at present ascenders. They descended eons ago to have a physical experience and then began to climb back up the ladder of consciousness. Many lightworkers however have come down expressly in this lifetime and for the purpose of leavening the loaf through their Ascension. (I acknowledge that others have contracted to have many lifetimes on Earth, to help terrestrials prepare for this Ascension.)
In this article, I’d like to look at the role the celestials have played in the enlightenment of terrestrials, described mostly by Archangel Michael though various channels.
Among humans known to have been enlightened by angels in scripture were Moses, Daniel, Isaiah, Ezekiel, Mohammed, and Alfred Lord Tennyson. (1)
In the case of Moses, “the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.” (2) When Moses came down from that encounter, he was enlightened.
Isaiah was also enlightened by angels; specifically, a seraph.
“In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple … and one [seraphim] cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory. …
“Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts.
“Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar:
“And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged.” (3)
It was also a seraph that enlightened Alfred Lord Tennyson as he stood on the shores of Africa. It’s so dramatic that I think it merits citing at length:
“I stood upon the Mountain which o’erlooks
The narrow seas….
“A curve of whitening, flashing, ebbing light!
A rustling of white wings! the bright descent
Of a young Seraph! and he stood beside me
There on the [mountain] ridge, and look’d into my face
With his unutterable, shining orbs. …
“Stagger’d beneath the vision, and thick night
Came down upon my eyelids, and I fell.
“With ministering hand he rais’d me up:
Then with a mournful and ineffable smile,
Which but to look on for a moment fill’d
My eyes with irresistible sweet tears…
“‘There is no mightier Spirit than I to sway
The heart of man: and teach him to attain
By shadowing forth the Unattainable….’” (4)
I once asked Archangel Michael to confirm the role the angels historically played in enlightenment.
Steve Beckow: We often say that we “get” enlightened, and we sometimes say that God graces us with enlightenment. But is it not the case that angels actually mediate enlightenment; in other words, bring enlightenment to us?
Archangel Michael: They assist in your enlightenment process, yes. That is one of the gifts to them and to you. (5)
Later in the same program, he expanded on the celestials who were involved in our enlightenment and what they do. He calls enlightenment the greatest of the Mother’s gifts.
Archangel Michael: The angels, particularly what you think of as the second and third spheres, but particularly the archangels, the angels, and the virtues, actually, play a great role in bringing that enlightenment that you asked for, that you seek, that you open your heart to receive, and acknowledge that is already within you. …
That is our joy, not simply to serve the Mother, but to bring and to be the bearers of her gifts, the greatest of which is enlightenment. (6)
What exactly do the celestials do in their work as the Mother’s agents of enlightenment? AAM continued:
Archangel Michael: What we do is in many ways we blow on the flame until it becomes an inferno. And their breath is the breath of wisdom and love and joy and sweetness.
But do not ever make the incorrect thinking, thinking that you do not have the essential element to bring enlightenment forward, because you do. You always have.
I guess this is one of our greatest joys! To beckon to you, to travel with you, to embrace you, to point you in certain directions.(7)
He then made a very significant statement, acknowledging that our karma yoga, our seva or selfless service was enough to bring us enlightenment. I know many people wonder if they should meditate (which is often called raja yoga) or follow other spiritual discipline as well as serving. But AAM says here that service is enough.
Archangel Michael: Now, let me give you an example quickly, if I may. Many of you — and particularly you, my beloved friend — travel with me and do remarkable service on my behalf.
Now, you think of this as service to me. And whether it is the building of the platform [the Golden Age of Gaia] or traveling with me to the war-torn areas of Afghanistan or Egypt or Korea, when you go in that service, you are also receiving the energy, the catalyst for greater enlightenment. So think of it as an infinity flow: ‘I do my service. I receive more enlightenment.'(8)
In a previous article we looked at the team of higher-dimensional beings bringing enlightenment to us, as the means of our Ascension. They join the celestials who have always mediated enlightenment for this planet’s inhabitants.
Through Ronna Herman, Archangel Michael stated that “the Angelic Kingdom amplifies Light.” (1) In a message through Natalie Glasson, he described his role in sending a particular light dispensation to Earth.
“The light dispensation that I bring forth from the Creator, through the Angelic Kingdom and into my being is a vibration and wave of light which I wish to channel directly into the souls of humanity. It is a new wave, light and consciousness focused upon power and empowerment directed at the soul.” (2)
He described what the light he planned to bestow on people would do.
“My light dispensation at this time brings forth the energy and consciousness of power and strength to be anchored into your soul and every soul upon the Earth.
“My light dispensation empowers the soul offering the soul the courage and magnification that it requires to emerge and project its purity and creations from the physical body.
“As I channel light into your being I am focusing solely upon your soul, surrounding it with supreme love and power to create an activation within your soul to encourage its deeper emergence within your physical being and reality, as well as encouraging your greater recognition of your soul.
“My light is also opening and awakening many channels within your being and physical body to allow and support the increasing surge and flow of your soul. Please call upon me to be present with you and to share my dispensation of light with your soul, if you feel guided to at this time.” (3)
Again through Natalie Glasson, he called it his greatest purpose to anchor in the Creator’s Light among us.
“It is my greatest purpose to act as a divine expression of the Creator, connecting with and reminding souls of the vibration of the Creator within and around them. I carry the light of the Creator to you, I allow for you to see the light of the Creator within me and I support you in realising yourself as an aspect of the Creator in manifestation.
“In many ways I am here to act as an example of the Creator’s light as well as your own light. This is the role of all Angels, Archangels and Ascended Master beings.” (4)
On another occasion, speaking through Linda Dillon, he compared the celestials’ role to delivery agents for the Mother, bringing a third wave of the Tsunami of Love to us.
“There is a new energy, can we call it a tertiary wave, though it is more than that; that comes to the planet directly from the heart of the Mother. And yes, we are her delivery agents.” (5)
Again through Linda, he compared the celestials’ role to that of conduits and listed all the energies they conduct to us:
“Yes, we are conduits as well, allowing the energy of all the various codes, variables, unfoldment of her plan, to fully enter and be anchor, translated, transmuted, through us, through the realms, to each of you, not just to the select few who are lightworkers, light-holders, love-holders, but to each and every being.” (6)
AAM not only delivers the energy, but here he offers to help us assimilate and integrate it.
“Simply call me, Archangel Michael, forth and ask me to anchor and download into your soul and third eye chakra the angelic consciousness of unconditional love and seeing truth. While energy will activate from your soul, hold your focus on the growing energy within your third-eye chakra until you feel the energy present, letting it flow into your mind.” (7)
The celestials must modulate and moderate the Light. If AAM appeared in his magnificence, we’d probably leave the body, he tells us: “For my full presence to suddenly apparit [appear] would probably cause you to drop dead.” (8) I told him that had its advantages. I’d get to go home.
He was not amused.
Conventionally, in Biblical times and later, the celestials have brought Light to Earth. Archangels, Seraphim, Virtues and other angelic spheres have acted as step-down transformers, delivering the Mother’s energy and light to us in amounts that we could assimilate and anchor.
Now they’re joined by terrestrial and ascended masters, to accomplish our ascent up the crystal staircase to heaven and the first mass physical Ascension in the universe, a gradual and sudden process which we’re right in the middle of today.
We’re obliged to use language to discuss matters between us. But language so often fails us.
It may convey a point incompletely. It may reduce something vast and significant to something inconsequential. It may prove totally incapable of conveying anything about the something it refers to (God, for instance).
When we discuss Ascension, we typically use language metaphors that depict us going on a journey to a place far removed, not by distance, but by dimension. But my understanding is that we don’t go anywhere; we simply raise our vibrations. But even the use of the metaphorical word “go” is deceiving. We’ll find ourselves in a different plane or dimension but we didn’t “go” there: we didn’t walk there, fly there, etc.
So we stumble along from one inadequate metaphor to another.
I most like Aldous Huxley’s phrase that ascending (and here I’m guessing) will be like “opening the doors of perception.” Our capacity to perceive will expand mightily and that’s what we’ll immediately notice upon ascending.
Yes, later we’ll have expanded psychic abilities and all the rest, but what will strike us first is the newly-opened doors of perception.
I’m not expecting to wake up in a different world. But I am expecting to perceive the world differently.
And then after some time at that vibratory “place” (even “place” is a metaphor) I at last will need to return (you perhaps can stay). It’ll be back to the Fourth Dimension but with Fifth-Dimensional powers of perception.
Another unique feature of the process we’re going through is that it’s a mass Ascension. Until now, only a few initiates ascended, but now the gift is available everyone who chooses and has assimilated sufficient Light, as Archangel Michael through Ronna Herman tells us:
“In past ages, the Ascension process was available only to those who incarnated as initiates firmly on the path – as disciples whose mission was to anchor as much Divine Light and to bring forth as much cosmic wisdom as possible.
“That time is past. It is a time of mass Ascension.” (1)
The Hathors through Wes Annac reminded us that “your evolution is coming about in a collective manner, and this isn’t the norm for the ascension of most planets.” (2)
SaLuSa affirmed this aspect of our Ascension:
“Although individuals have always been able to ascend, it will be the first time that mass ascension on this scale has been attempted. It will of course be successful, as it is in the hands of powerful Beings that do the Will of God.” (3)
“Never before have both the people and the Earth ascended together, but there is absolute confidence that it will successfully take place. You should feel quite pleased to be the ones who are on Earth at such a wonderful occasion. The significance of it all will not be lost on anyone, as to have such an experience is quite unique. We shall be eagerly watching the whole process, ready to welcome the latest members of the Galactic Society.” (4)
However we added an extra wrinkle to the notion of mass ascension in that we apparently decided prior to Dec. 21, 2012 that we wished to ascend with as many people as possible.
Numerous sources record this event. Here is Jesus through John Smallman: “You have made the collective intent to awaken.” (5) Here is Archangel Gabriel through Shelley Young: “ You have all, as a collective whole, decided to move forward into the next grand age of enlightenment.” (6) And here is the Light Collective through Tazjima: “Humanity as a collective has chosen to ascend.” (7)
Archangel Michael calls “this collective decision … a huge evolutionary jump, leap.” (8)
But he reminds us that it did not create a lengthy pause: “The hiatus that has been created by the collective desire of humanity to go forward in this undertaking of magnificence, of which we have spoken a great deal, is not indefinite. The plan of the Mother does not get put on hold, on pause, indefinitely.” (9)
In fact, he recently told us, the process of Ascension has again begun and we are passing through it at the present time. On April 1, 2014, Archangel Michael reported through Ronna Herman:
“Do not take your eyes or your attention from your goal, Dear Ones, for that doorway of greater Light is nearer than you think. … Are you ready for the next awakening?” (10)
And on An Hour with an Angel, he brought us this news:
Archangel Michael: The Ascension process does not begin in the Fifth Dimension. It has already begun. You are already experiencing it. But when you reach there ― as you are about to, by the way; that is as close as I can come without breaking my promise with the channel.
SB: Well, now, Lord, I think I need you to confirm that you’re talking about everyone and not just talking to me.
AAM: That is correct.
SB: Everyone? Okay.
AAM: Every person.
SB: Okay! There you go, folks! [laughs] Thank you! (11)
That was followed up on June 3 by this suggestion from Jesus through John Smallman:
“We have been talking for some time now about a Tsunami of Love, well right behind it is an avalanche, and that avalanche is unstoppable! Prepare yourselves to be enveloped in its brilliant white Light, open yourselves to it, float to its sunlit surface, then get up on your snow boards or skis and glide gloriously across its shining surface in a state of ecstatic enjoyment.” (12)
Tomorrow we’ll look at how the Earth is the first planet in the multiverse to have begun this new process of physical and mass Ascension.

There are so many shifts we seem called upon to make to prepare the way for the shift in perspective that Ascension will bring. I’d like to talk about one today.
I mentioned earlier that, while we’re pure Consciousness wearing a body, it’s hard for us to imagine what being pure Consciousness “looks like.” Are we like a cloud? Are we a point of Light? Are we nothingness? And if so how does knowing occur?
Bliss and Knowing
Spiritual experiences we have give us clues to the answers to these questions.
One that I had in 1987 gave me an important clue. I had a vision experience, lasting perhaps eight seconds, (1) in which I saw the entire life journey of an individual soul from God out into the world and back to God again.
Never mind what I saw during that time. The bliss that I felt was huge. Before I say what the impact of that bliss was, let me say that the vision was wordless. There was no one narrating it. There were no captions saying “God the Father,” “God the Mother,” etc.
There was no need to because the bliss I felt gave me the ability somehow to know intuitively who and what I was seeing. The vision opened with a large golden sun in the lefthand corner of my sight which I intuitively knew to be God the Father. Out from it shot a small golden star, which I intuitively knew to be God the Child. Then it disappeared into a cloud which I knew to be God the Mother.
The rest of the vision you can read in the source mentioned in footnote 1. The important things is that bliss brought with it a much deeper level of knowledge than I would ordinarily have had. It freed me from the density of this Third-Dimensional body. Jesus described its impact here:
“The Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.” (2)
Now combine that with what Paramahansa Yogananda has said: “Aum the bissful comforter is heard in meditation and reveals to the devotee the ultimate truth.” (3)
The Holy Ghost, the Divine Mother, is the primal creative vibration which we call “Aum.” She is full of bliss and brings all things to remembrance. Therefore one of the ways we have of knowing in a higher-dimensional, more-expansive way is through the experience of bliss.
We usually think we enhance our knowledge through study, conversation, listening, etc., and here we find we enhance it through the spiritual, internal, ineffable experience of bliss. Does that not excite our curiosity about who we ultimately are? And does it not point in the direction of us being Consciousness rather than bodies and brains?
Experience and Knowing
When we hear someone like Archangel Michael or SaLuSa or Matthew Ward, is it not the gentleness with which they speak, the wisdom that comes through, and the love that their words convey what causes us to listen to them. Our experience of their words and what they convey is what causes us to feel we “know” them, is it not?
If a galactic being was standing in front of us, we might initially be afraid, but then, when they speak in soothing and loving tones, we’d relax, would we not? Our own experience of their vibrations and manner of conversing would awaken in us regard, attraction and love. That inner knowing that comes from experiencing them would assert itself and reassure us.
This is an example of our own inner knowing coming to the surface. There would be no substitute for this inner knowing. If they presented credentials from the Arcturian High Council or showed us their spaceship or did a jig before us, none of that would reassure us. But the love in their voices and their soothing tone would resonate with something deep inside of us and bring about an inner knowing. The fact that this inner knowing is what is ultimately persuasive points again to us being at essence Consciousness.
This effect is not only seen when meeting a stranger. When reading a spiritual master, the more that master – like Yogananda or Ramakrishna for instance – are able to access and talk about love, joy, and happiness – the more they’re like a magnet to us. Something in what they say resonates with us. This too should demonstrate to us that knowingness increases with our experience of their divine qualities.
Depth and Knowing
When I profess my love to my sweet angel (4) and she to me, we go deeper and deeper in our sharing. We don’t discuss what’s happening in China or how we like crepes but don’t like quiche (I’m making it up). No, we go deeper and deeper into professing our love for each other. And going deeper multiplies our love.
And the more love we feel, the more certain we are of various things; the easier it is to make large and important decisions; and the more love we have to give to others. The greater becomes our desire to serve as well. Going deeper also increases our knowingness.
Love is a property of Consciousness. The more we love, the more conscious we are. This again points one’s attention to the fact that knowingness is to be found inwardly, which itself leads us to encounter the fact that we are at essence Consciousness.
* * *
These then are some ways in which we begin to experience or suspect that we are at essence Consciousness. Recognizing and acknowledging them allows us begin shifting our perspective from considering ourselves to be at essence this temporary wrapping we call a body, this means of experiencing physicality, to considering ourselves to be the bodiless, formless Consciousness that we truly are.

(4) Yes, the Divine Mother has brought me a sweet angel. But I’m not willing to identify her yet (although I will write about my experience of sacred union). Please allow us that privacy and consideration.
I sometimes hear Buddhists and Advaitins (followers of the non-dual path) say that they would come with us on the journey to ascension if they only saw how the two paths fit together.
Perhaps I can offer my interpretation of how they fit.
Ascension is know by many names to terrestrial sages. Moksha and sahaja samadhi to Hindus; nirvana and buddhahood to Buddhists; redemption and salvation to Christians. It signifies entry into what is called the “mental planes” in the afterlife world, “heaven” to the early Christian Fathers, and the “Fifth Dimension” to the Company of Heaven.
The medium through which entry into nirvana or heaven is effected is to many terrestrial sages known as “Self-Knowledge” or “Self-Realization.”
The Company of Heaven seem to shy away from use of the word “Self” in this current consciousness shift. Therefore they don’t use the term “Self-Realization.”
They come back again and again to the use of the word “heart.” To me they’re the same.
I think they do that because they have a short amount of time till ascension and vast numbers of people to address and impact. Rather than get caught up in doctrinal discussions of “self/no self/Self/No Self (anatta),” they prefer to use the one word, immediately understandable to most people on Earth – heart.
Moreover, the whole approach that’s been taken in this ascension centers around love. It doesn’t center around light and illumination. It doesn’t focus on realization or knowledge. It isn’t even on ascension itself. It has been on love. And love is probably irreversibly associated in the human mind with the heart.
Archangel Michael has made a number of telling comments to me on the subject. Once I asked him who it was that was watching what was happening and he confirmed that it was, not the personality, not the ego, not our Third-Dimensional consciousness, not some other construction in consciousness, but the Self or Atman. But notice how he begins by focusing attention on the heart:
Steve Beckow: There’s something that focuses its attention on the higher self, the ego, the mind. What is that something that does that?
Archangel Michael: It is that part of you that is your heart and part of you that is your ego, that loves to have separation. But it is the internal knowing that there are many pieces of you, not that they are separated but to be drawn upon and brought together in the harmony of the integrated self.
SB: Okay, but always there is something that is aware, always, always aware and that never ceases to be aware. That aware part of me focuses on the mind, or focuses on me, or the higher self… What IS that part of me? Is it the Atman?
AAM: It is your very soul. (1)
SB: Now is that the Atman or beyond the Atman?
AAM: No, it is your Atman.
SB: That is a question I’ve had for decades! Thank you for settling that one for me. (2)
In the following comment, he intimates that heart-centered awareness and heart-centered love are important parts of the new paradigm: “Leadership is a tenuous role and it is particularly a tenuous role in terms of the understanding, in the new paradigm, of heart-centered awareness, of heart-centered love.” (3)
Let’s look at his next comment: “Transformative love, heart-centered awareness, expansion, increase in frequency and vibration is not achieved – let me be even stronger; cannot be achieved – from a place of defensiveness.” (4) Here he almost seems to offer transformative love, heart-centered awareness, expansion, and increase in frequency and vibration as synonyms. Increase in frequency and vibration is ascension; therefore heart-centered awareness and love appear to be synonymous with or lead up to ascension.
It isn’t as if the notion that the Company of Heaven seems to be putting forward is not known to us. One of the most famous passages in the Bible has God grant Solomon a wish and the king responds: “Give … thy servant an understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may discern between good and bad.” (5)
What difference is there between heart-centered awareness and an understanding heart? Are we all now destined to have the wisdom of Solomon, upon entering Fifth Dimensionality? (6)
The fact that the Company of Heaven departs from the practice of so many terrestrial sages and focuses on heart-centered awareness and love does not mean that Buddhists and Advaitins cannot somehow continue to focus on the Self/No Self. It just requires both parties – the non-dualists and the followers of the Company of Heaven – to make the translation: Self/No Self = Heart.
There are many other places where translation is required. Here are two examples. The Divine Mother = Shakti = the Holy Spirit. The Christ = the Atman = The Self. We have to knit together the differing accounts of the sages. Here we need to connect the terms “Self” and “heart” if we’re to make the connection between the non-dualist and ascension paths.
There’s no need for the light- and loveholders of the world to join the lightworkers, except in heart, in unity, in love. The lightholders are seeking illumination. The loveholders are seeking and wanting to share love. The lightworkers are building Nova Earth.
We all have separate but important roles to play. My heart is with the lightholders but my commitment is to the lightworkers. This lifetime is about building Nova Earth for me. AAM has said expliclty no Himalayan cave this lifetime, etc. (7)
Nonethless, we’re all headed for the same place. Just as the eye, the ear and the mouth serve different functions, but the body carries all to the same place, so loveholders, lightholders and lightworkers also serve different functions, but the body of spirituality will carry us all to the same place.
All of us are vital to the functioning of the total body of humanity and all of us have a reason for being here, now.
(1) The Atman is the soul, but I want to hear the word from his mouth. Nothing else will settle my doubts.

(5) I Kings 3:9.
(6) That development comes with the attainment of Sahaja Samadhi, which itself comes a while after we enter 5D.
(7) Not like I’ve lived in a Himalayan cave in any lifetime. I have not. But several times I’ve been a monk.
In my view, we’re at a very special part of the spiritual path. It’s a place of beginning and it’s known by many names.
It could be called the centerpoint, the heart, the balance point, the stillpoint.
We often call it normalcy or our natural state.
Once we’re aware of our center point and once we court remaining in it, we enter, I believe, the curve of the J-curve that ascension is.
We call it ascension. Biblical authors called it the rapture. It’s what’s meant by salvation, liberation, release from the wheel of birth and death. As a general opportunity, it happens once every 26,000 years, as far as I understand.
The center point is not the same as what’s called the zero point. I believe that to be much further down the road.
Even Sahaja Samadhi, (1) which is very far past being in our centerpoint, and past the zero point as well, is still simply a word for “natural.” So by the very terms we use to describe these events, we know we’re heading for … normalcy, naturalness.
I remember clearing a colossal vasana at an Enlightenment Intensive and it left me feeling … normal.
That means that up to that point, unbeknownst to me, I had been behaving abnormally.
People may have tried to tell me and I would not or could not hear them. And now here I was, having cleared the vasanas – and feeling normal.
I would have thought that I’d end up feeling super or great, but, no.
Another way of saying this is to say that until we’re OK with ourselves, the real ascent cannot begin.
As long as we’re not OK with ourselves, we “work” on ourselves. We labor, toil, do everthing we can think of to get OK with ourselves. We polish, preen, strut and beg.
We feel perpetually in the red and never in the black. We’re forever not happy. Something is always out. It’s as if we’ve become addicted to drama and never experience silence.
Very little attention is left over to give to matters proper to ascent.
I’m not saying we aren’t ascending. In the overall scheme of things, our clearing is essential and results in a great deal of ground covered.
Not until we’re OK with ourselves have we finished with ourselves, so to speak. Finished with the clearing, the practising, etc. Finished with self-concern, self-focus, our everyday narcissism.
Not until then are we ready to clear some space and attention for others.
Not until then can we make the contribution we’ve intended to make (if we really looked at it) all our lives.
It’s the difference between standing on the platform talking about the rollercoaster ride and being seated in the rollercoaster with it beginning to roll. When at last we feel OK with ourselves, I think, the real ride begins.
When we feel OK with ourselves, happiness arrives. We enjoy the silence and the not-silence. We’re available to what’s happening now rather than only to the past and future.
The real work of ascension can now begin. If you’re a lightholder, past this point, you probably serve the Mother’s Plan by going inwards or in other ways uncovering your true and essential nature.
If you’re a lightworker, you probably serve the Mother’s Plan by helping to create and construct the new society. That could include healing, artistry, cooking, weaving. It doesn’t have to look a certain way and each one has his or her own unique mission.
We thought this work would leave us feeling special. We were out to save the world. Are we not great?
But we find the desire to feel special departing from us along with so much other baggage that had to be dropped to reach normalcy. We have no further need to reap what we may have sown for personal reasons. And what we’ve sown in service in the Mother’s service, we let go of as soon as we complete it.
We’re fine with everything the way it is and the way it’s not. We’re now ready to begin – the real work, our real missions, the real ascent.
(1) Sahaja Samadhi is a permanent heart opening that constitutes liberation from the need to be reborn. Functionally that means an exiting of the Third/Fourth Dimension and ascension to the Fifth. Hindus call the state moksha. Jesus called it redemption and salvation. Buddhists call it nirvana.
Let’s continue to settle into the subject of heart consciousness.
As far as I can see, saying “settle into heart consciousness” is no different than saying “imagine communing with your Higher Self.” The two – the heart and the seat of higher consciousness – are, as far as I can see, the same. Both are simply names for the fount of love that emanates from the Mother/Father One and resides in the spiritual heart. Jesus called it “the pearl of great price.”
Archangel Michael defines Ascension as our vibrational shift to a higher realm of heart consciousness.
“Ascension … is the elevation of your being into an entirely different, higher, expanded realm of heart consciousness. And with that, the attendant abilities to create, co-create and bring forth Nova Earth.” (1)
Heart consciousness is the new reality, he told us recently, in the course of discussing our role as lightworkers and loveholders:
“You are the embodiment and the physical anchors, activators, doers of creating Nova Earth. You are the anchors of Ascension, … of the heart consciousness that is the new reality.” (2)
Nova Being, the Divine Mother says, is tied to our ability and willingness to love and our willingness to demonstrate our commitment to love in physicality. Those states of being result in the expansion of our heart consciousness:
“If the love is not present, if the commitment [to love, and] the demonstration of that commitment is not present in physicality, then how is it Nova Earth? How are you Nova Beings? How does that reflect the anchoring of heart consciousness?” (3)
Archangel Michael calls the “ignition” that triggers one phase of Ascension full heart consciousness.
“Ignition is the feeling, the awareness, the understanding — and many of you already have this — that you are love, that you are completely in your heart consciousness, that you are in the joy even when there appears to be a morass of chaos around you, and that your focus is completely on creation, the creation of the new.
“And it is the turning of a switch, of the collective.” (4)
One moment we’re in our normal state of worry, hope and fear and the next moment, a switch is turned on (“ignition”) and we’re completely in the love of our heart consciousness. That’s the phase of Ascension that we as lightworkers are facilitating and working towards. (Sahaja Samadhi, the culmination of Ascension, lies further down the road.)
The Divine Mother explains that we’ll experience unity consciousness as an explosion of heart consciousness that will have us embrace our integrated divinity. I experienced a heart opening as an explosion so I can imagine further ones.
“When you enter into unity consciousness – think of it as the implosion and explosion of heart consciousness – it is you surrendering and at the same time assuming responsibility for the truth and the totality of who you are, all aspects, all parts – integrated divinity.” (5)
What I take from her remarks is that this balance point of surrendering to the truth of who we are while assuming responsibility for it is the portal to Ascension for us. (6) Or at least one phase of it. (Not Sahaja.)
She goes on to make a point about unity consciousness that I’ve also been making about love and a heart opening.
I said that, where there’s no remembrance of past injuries, there’s no need for forgiveness. And where there’s no fear, there’s no need for courage.
She says that, where there’s unity consciousness, the fear of not being special disappears. She tells us:
“In unity consciousness, the fear of not being unique and special disappears because the knowing, the wisdom, the sublime bliss of being love is enough to let down your barriers and joyfully, ecstatically, without defenses – without what you would call vasanas – to join in genuine cooperation, admiration of each other, of the uniqueness of your gifts, of the unique expression you have chosen, and I have chosen for you.
“And so this sense that ‘if I conjoin, I lose something’ is gone.” (7)
Moreover, a feeling such as feeling special or self-importance has no place in the higher dimensions. It simply cannot find a foothold to exist in them.
I believe that’s why Sri Ramakrishna used to counsel people to walk into the lake, jump in, dive in – it matters not. It only matters that people get themselves into the lake.
The lake – the higher dimensions – are of themselves sublime and do not support or allow our negative emotions or vasanas to exist. Once we’re in that lake, these all disappear.
Archangel Michael tells us that sacred union is being emphasized at this time because it’s a way to open us up to heart communication.
“What is happening with these sacred unions … what is being opened, is the opportunity to renew and rediscover and raise the bar in terms of what is heart communication.
“So that all the dross is eliminated. And so that there truly is [an opportunity for the mind] to stand in partnership with the heart. …
“And that is how you enter into the heart communication. … There is no room for artifice. And there is no room for the subtext.” (8)
The call is for authenticity and love. Throw out our rackets and numbers. Let down our guard but also commit. As the Mother said, we have the reward but we also have the responsibility.
Archangel Michael has been working on us in this area for quite a while. Here he is in 2013 cheering us on to be with and notice the subtle shifts and full opening of our hearts.
“Simply [allow] yourself to be with the fullness of who you are and [notice] not merely the subtle shifts, but the full opening of your heart, and how you are more in your heart consciousness than you ever have been before. …
“You are allowing and exploring areas and things to occur that perhaps were a no-fly zone earlier.” (9)
So the opening of our hearts and the full expansion of our heart consciousness is a vital part of our Ascension. We’re ascending together and the development of heart communication and connection culminating in the rise of unitive consciousness is itself the Ascension plan.
Love unites. And whatever remains separate, love wants to unite with. That’s the flow of life, to and beyond Ascension.
Not only do we use the word “culture” for an organization of ideas. We call life in a Petrie dish a “culture” as well.
And we lightworkers are living in a very large Petrie dish of Ascension.
How we do is being observed and noted. The experiment is being tinkered with and finessed as we go along.
I’d imagine penicillin was discovered in a Petrie dish and many other medical breakthroughs probably have been as well.
In our case Archangel Michael said that serving the Light will spread until everyone on Earth is a lightworker. That conversation shows how we lightworkers work as a “culture” of Ascension:
Archangel Michael: You are emissaries. You are wayshowers, you are pathfinders, you are regridders, reweavers. If leadership — and I use this in the communal sense of the word — if leadership does not have a clear sense of direction, of mission and purpose, how do you lead? How? No, it is important for the lightworker community because they have stepped forward and acknowledged, remembered, why they are here.
So we are in this sacred partnership. Are we in partnership with every being on the planet? Yes. But it is difficult when you are in a partnership and the other person does not realize it. So we are working with those who realize we are in partnership. And so that is why we are having these conversations.
So, does the conversation expand organically and naturally? Does the energy go out to the entire planet, those who want to hear and those who don’t want to hear? Yes, it does. But it begins with the lightworker community. That is what we have need of.
Steve Beckow: And I suppose then more and more people join the lightworker community?
AAM: Exactly, until it is one family and one path. (1)
The experiment isn’t designed to live only in experimental conditions. Penicillin wasn’t developed to spend its time in the dish it was developed in. It was bottled and sent round the world to be used wherever lives needed to be saved.
And so as well our lightwork and what we’ve learned from it will go around the world and benefit others. It’ll show them pathways through the jungle we went through, according to Hilarion:
“You now walk the Earth with humble heart, remembering well the testing times and how difficult it was to rise above the chaos to create a higher vision and to hold it high.
“Those who come after are having an easier time of it than did you, and this was by divine intent and design. By your courageous example, you have set the bar high and those who are in the throes of transformation have a safer path to follow, with many guideposts along the way.
“You have been diligently pursuing your divine calling and most of you are now or will be soon, in the position to be of great assistance to the seeking ones.” (2)
So, yes, we’re under the microscope and being subjected to this coding and that ray and this download and that activation. But we are the tested strain that will seed the transformation. Just as a measure of yeast causes a whole loaf of dough to rise, so a relatively-small group of starseed lightworkers will cause this bread to rise as well.
I was reading the columns of two lightworkers today, one of whom was saying that World War III is imminent and the second of whom was predicting the downfall of the Illuminati traitor Barack Obama within … days, weeks, I can’t remember.
I don’t believe either of these notions for a nanosecond.
Here we have such a wonderful opportunity as the experimental strain that will influence life on this planet in truly historic ways. As we transfigure and transform into higher-dimensional beings in this wonderful soup of encouragement and love, my request of anyone who sees only the possibility of world war in the scenario that presents itself to us is: Go deeper.
And when you’ve gone deeper, go deeper again. This is an opportunity not to be missed. Leave behind your personal agendas and fears and become part of the new culture that will spread and leaven humanity in the end.
This Petrie dish grows a culture of love. There’s nothing but benefit from it. Just as medical penicillin saved many lives in its day, so will the penicillin of our love cause many lives to blossom.
With the advent of Edward Snowden, joining Bradley Manning, Julian Assange and others, I’ll be reposting a few articles written years ago – to remind us of what we’re ending on this planet and how deep the rabbit hole goes.
The tone is now a bit anachronistic, given where we are in the transformational cycle, but the facts were accurate at the time and many still apply.
It’s time to run the Black Hats outta town. It’s time to end the New World Order’s game, close the casino, and lock the doors.
It’s time to lower the boom of justice on the Black Hats in the World Bank, the IMF, the BIS, Congress, the Federal Reserve, the Bilderbergers, Goldman Sachs, Bank of America, the corrupt judicial system, the corrupt police system, Northcom, NORAD, CIA, FBI, everyone.
Everyone who turned the world into a reckless gaming house in which the rich got richer and the poor got poorer, everyone who grew more powerful at the expense of the rights and freedoms of others.
Everyone who denied basic medicare to citizens. Everyone who made subprime loans to poor people, collateralized them, raised their rates, and then evicted the owners. Everyone who took out “Dead Peasant” insurance policies on their employees and made millions from them, sharing none with the relatives of the deceased.
Everyone who engineered 9/11, Oklahoma City, the London bombings, Madrid, and Mumbai to stampede the world. Everyone who began illegal wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, who took away citizens’ rights, pushed for martial law, and set up FEMA camps to incarcerate “trouble-makers.”
Everyone who designed viruses – AIDS, SARS, avian flu, and now swine flu – some of them racially-specific – and vaccines whose only purpose was to sicken and kill in the name of depopulating the globe. Everyone who seeded the skies with chemtrails causing sickness and death from Morgellon’s disease.
Everyone who kept technologies from us that would have freed us from fossil fuels back in the 1950s. Everyone who murdered inventors who discovered how to make cars run on water. Everyone who created space-based weapons systems to extend their rule into space.
Everyone who kept from us knowledge of the populated world of space. Everyone who created a secret space service that has colonized Mars since at least the 1970s.
Everyone who killed to hide Roswell from us and created secret areas of research where they back-engineered miracles gained from downed space craft and from treaties with the Greys and then kept them from the public.
Everyone who ran torture prisons overseas, at secret underground bases, or at Guantanamo. Everyone who ran institutions like the School of the Americas where gangsters were trained to overthrow democratically-elected regimes.
Everyone who created and used Blackwater and Whackenhut to create a private army and prison or who sentenced children to jail as a business.
Every Congressional Representative and every Senator who accepted bribes, favors, sex, trips and any other inducement that led them to sell their vote to the Black Hats.
Everyone who plotted to take over Canada and Mexico out of a so-called “Security and Prosperity Partnership” (ironic misnomer) or start a third world war with Iran, Russia, or China to bring the population down from 6.8 billion to a more manageable 500 million, destined to be slaves.
Everyone who developed HAARP and used it to cause or amplify earthquakes and hurricanes (including Katrina), killing tens of thousands. Or ULF (ultra-low-frequency weapons) and experimented with them, bringing down the I35W Minneapolis bridge.
Everyone who speculated in currency and brought down national economies which they then held hostage to onerous debt payments. Everyone who made loans to third-world countries and then robbed them of their resources when they couldn’t pay.
There is so much more – a media bought and paid for, deep underground military bunkers, Pine Gap, Australia, space base, Area 51, depleted-uranium weapons, printing truckloads of dollars.
This planet, reeling under the black-hole debt of the derivatives megabubble, will no longer tolerate your rule.
We know you, Black Hats. We know the whole range of your activities. We know you inside and out.
We know your business. Three showers a day won’t keep you clean.
The Black Hats, the hangers on, the vultures, the whole gang – it’s time for you to go.
