Exposing the illusion behind all dictators 

Listen to a recording of this dictation (subscribers only) 

Ascended Master Sanat Kumara through Kim Michaels, May 4, 2019. This dictation was given at a conference in Seoul, Korea.

I AM the Ascended Master Sanat Kumara. I greet you in the flame of love. Not only the flame of love that we have brought from Venus, but the flame of love of the Third Ray.

I wish to speak about how dictators pervert love. They do not pervert the flame of love as it cannot be perverted, but they pervert love, and how do they do it? Well, many people would say that love is a feeling. The reason they say this is that a concept has been created by the fallen beings that has reduced love to a feeling, because love is a spiritual flame. A spiritual flame has nothing to do with what human beings on earth call feelings. They are divine qualities: love, wisdom, purity, and so forth. But divine qualities are not human feelings.

How love has been perverted

Now, what happens on earth is that you have a need—human beings have a need to name and label everything. When you create a label expressed in words, then the fallen beings can take those words and create a man-made concept, a dualistic, relative concept. That is how they take divine qualities and reduce them to human feelings. You have the concept of a human feeling named love. You have a divine quality, which can also be named love but of course is much more than any name that can be expressed in words. What the fallen beings have done is they have taken this word and they have perverted it so that it now describes both what is supposedly a divine quality (even though they cannot see a divine quality) but also a human feeling.

Many people think that it might be the same thing. They think that human love and divine love are the same thing, which of course they are not. It is not simply that you can set up a scale for love and you can say that at the lower levels this is human love and as you go gradually higher, you reach divine love. This is a false image. There is a fundamental difference between human love and divine love. You cannot go from one to the other. You cannot cultivate and perfect human love, and thereby reach divine love.

This is a mistake made by so many Christians, and other spiritual and religious people throughout the ages, where they think that if they are loving enough in a human way, then they will eventually become loving in a divine way. But it cannot be done. You cannot be an open door for divine love unless you have transcended the human love, or rather transcended the self that can only deal with human love. You see that self for what it is, a separate self in your being, and you let it die. Then, you can be an open door for divine love.

People love the dictator and hate the scapegoat

What you see in many dictatorships is that there is this entire consciousness created that people are supposed to love the dictator. You see this across the border in North Korea. You saw it in Nazi Germany. You have seen it in China even today where they glorify and supposedly love Chairman Mao. You see it in Russia with Stalin. You saw it with Pol Pot. You have seen it with other dictators. You can go back to medieval Europe and see how they were supposed to love the kings and so forth and so on. How do you have a situation where you have a brutal dictator, who is oppressing the people, and yet the people, or at least a sizable portion of them, love that dictator?

Well, this is what the fallen beings are able to accomplish when they pervert things into human love, for example. They take this human feeling, and then they are able to get people to go into this very strange state of mind where they have both the human feeling and its opposite at the same time. This is what we have explained about the duality consciousness: It is polarized. There are always two polarizations, two opposite polarities. There is human love and there is hatred. Now, there is of course no divine hatred. But you could say that what the fallen beings have is a hatred that is actually beyond human hatred because they have had it for so long. They have cultured it for so long that it has taken on a quality and a proportion that is beyond what human beings on earth are capable of producing.

They have managed to get people on earth to go into this polarized state where they have the love, the human love, and the human hatred at the same time. This is how it is always expressed in a dictatorship. They manage to get people to love the dictator, but this can only be done because there is a scapegoat towards which people can direct the human hatred. They loved Adolph Hitler. They hated the Jews. This is what you see over and over again. There has to be a scapegoat. It has to be somebody where people can feel justified in directing the hatred that is the inevitable companion of human love. You cannot have human love without having hatred. When you go into this very unbalanced state that you have in a dictatorship, the people cannot avoid feeling both the intensity of the human love and the intensity of the human hatred.

Now, what you see in many of the modern democracies is that people have risen higher than this unbalanced state. Therefore, they do not have the strong emotions. They do not have this need to love their leader, or even love their country, as you see in all dictatorships. As a result of that, they do not have as strong of a hatred. Therefore, they do not need to direct that hatred against either a group in their own country or another country. It is not that people have transcended human feelings, but they have become more balanced. Therefore, they are not expressed in such an extreme way as you see in a dictatorship.

A very unbalanced form of government

By understanding this dynamic, you see that a dictatorship is a very, very unbalanced form of government. It is a very unbalanced state of mind that people go into when they are subject to a dictator. Of course, the dictator himself goes into an extremely unbalanced state of mind in order to become a dictator, do what he needs to do to gain power, and then be willing to do what he needs to do to maintain that power. That is why you see that all dictators go too far. They actually do more than they need to do in order to maintain power. The reason is that they become so unbalanced that they go into a state of paranoia where they see dangers and opposition everywhere. They see even their own people as enemies. They see even the very people who helped them gain power as threats. Therefore, they see anybody who gains influence in the government as a threat. And that is why you will see that they will sometimes cleanse them out as both Mao, Stalin and Hitler did at certain times.

What you realize here is that love is a feeling that does not stand still. We have said before that love flows, but in reality all divine qualities flow. Love has this special dynamic where even the perversion of the divine quality of love, namely human love, has a certain intensity. This means that it is very difficult for people to remain in one state. When they claim to be loving something from a human perspective, their love is possessive. Human love is possessive. This means in a sense that you are always striving to have some ultimate state of love. In love relationships you see many people who are looking for the perfect love partner. They find one person they think is the perfect love partner. They go into a relationship. When they discover that the person is not the perfect partner after all, then they often seek another partner. Or they seek to change their partner and mold that person into the perfect partner. It is difficult for even human love to stand still.

This is also what you see when people are manipulated by the fallen beings into loving a dictator and loving their country. You will see how in Nazi Germany, for example, they had a love for Hitler, they had a love for their nation. But it was not enough for them to just love their own nation and be content by sitting in their own nation and loving their nation and feeling superior. They had to export their view of life to other countries. They could not stay within their own borders. You see the Soviet Union where there was this desire to go beyond the borders. This is what leads to that unbalanced state where you engage in more and more ambitious measures. You can see, as we have mentioned before, that Adolph Hitler went into such an unbalanced state of mind that he wanted to conquer the entire world. Therefore, from the very beginning his defeat was assured, as the world is simply too big to be conquered by one power.

What is it that really happens when you reach this unbalanced state? Well, when you go into love and the state of love, you have this very special dynamic where people feel completely justified in doing what they are doing because they think they are doing it out of love. In other words, there is a certain state of consciousness, a certain illusion that has been projected by the fallen beings, that love is the ultimate human emotion. Love is the ultimate feeling and there is nothing higher than being loving. Therefore, when people feel that they are doing something out of love, they feel justified in forcing this upon others because it is for the good of these other people. If you really love your country and if your country is being threatened by another group of people, whether inside the country or outside, then is it not justified, by the very fact that you love your country so much, that you kill and eradicate those other people? This is how love can be perverted.

A better society, not by force but by choice

Listen to a recording of this dictation (subscribers only) 

Ascended Master Surya through Kim Michaels, May 3, 2019. This dictation was given at a conference in Seoul, Korea.

I AM the Ascended Master Surya. I want to continue on what Archangel Michael talked about earlier, about the fact that every dictator has at some level of consciousness the consent of the governed. Now, if you think about how most people in the world look at the topic of dictators, you will realize that it is very difficult for people to understand what a dictator is, why dictatorships have arisen, what kind of people are willing to be dictators. You can see that there is a certain element of denial in many people around the world.

For example, if you go to China you might know that even today they universally talk about the “Great Chairman Mao” and you are not allowed to say anything critical about Chairman Mao. It is almost unthinkable that the people would even dare to criticize what has become an idol for the nation. Likewise, in Russia you will see that many people, even though they know about what happened during Stalinist times, they are reluctant to criticize Stalin. It was only a few years ago that there was a public survey done in Russia where the Russian people could vote for the person they thought was the historically most significant person in Russia. For a long time Stalin was actually winning the contest, only in the end was he overtaken by a poet.

People deny the cruelty of the dictator

You will see that there is this tendency that the people will deny the cruelty of the dictator. What they will basically deny, is that the dictator did not care about them whatsoever. When you look at the reality, when you look at even what is known publicly about people like Mao or Stalin, you will see – if you look at it honestly and neutrally – that they did not care about their people, the people they were leading. They were willing to sacrifice any amount of those people for the cause, which basically was the cause of them staying in power. Chairman Mao had certain ideals that he was pursuing but Stalin had hardly any ideals other than him staying in power.

You will see that there is that element of denial that is still there in certain countries that either have a dictatorial form of government or have had it recently. You will see of course a difference when it comes to Hitler, who has for the most part been recognized as being universally evil. Of course, there are certain neo-Nazi groups that look at him with admiration but the vast majority of the people, both in Germany and elsewhere, have recognized and admitted the evil of Hitler. Of course, when they look at this, they cannot understand it. You will see the almost comical extent to which intellectuals will go when they attempt to analyze Hitler and explain how he could do what he did. They attempt to come up with rational, materialistic explanations: Whether it was his family background, his upbringing, his psychology, his genes or whatever.

Dictators are not normal human beings

My point for bringing this up, is that the world at large cannot understand why there are dictators. They cannot understand why there are a few people that are willing to step into this position of having unlimited power over a population of people. Then, once they have that power, they do absolutely anything they think necessary to maintain their power. They cannot understand and explain why there are some people that have held on to their power beyond all reasonability or rationality. They will not let go of their power, as you even saw with Hitler. When any rational person could see that the war was lost, he kept living in a fantasy world, moving around army units that did not exist except in his imagination. Always thinking about this super weapon that would be developed but which somehow never materialized. You see many other dictators like this.

Again, conventional science cannot explain this. Why is it that some dictators lose their minds to a point where they are out of touch with the real world, out of touch with their own people? They are blindly pursuing some kind of goal without any willingness to look at the practical reality of the situation. Naturally, we have given you very, very carefully (both through this messenger and also in previous ascended master dispensations) the knowledge that means that you can understand this at a deeper level. This of course is what we have attempted to condense in the “My Lives” book [My Lives with Lucifer, Satan, Hitler and Jesus] where in a concentrated form that is easier to read, people can get the knowledge that is the critical aspect to understanding dictators. That knowledge is of course that the reason why there is a few people that are willing to step into this position as dictators, is because there are a few people embodied on earth who are not normal human beings, they are different from the norm. This is what people in general have not been willing to recognize.

We must therefore logically ask ourselves why the world has not been willing to recognize this? Again, the only logical answer is that the major thought systems of the world have been influenced by (perhaps even in some cases generated by) certain forces that do not want people to understand the basic dynamic of earth, of how life works on earth. They do not want people in general to know that the earth is a planet with a very broad range of consciousness where many different lifestreams have embodied. This of course has its background in the fallen beings who do not want themselves to be known. They do not want the population to know that there is a specific group of people on earth who have no humanitarian ideals, who have no concerns whatsoever for human beings. These people do not see themselves as human beings, they see the population as human beings but they see themselves as being superior, as being in a special class of people.

This is something that the world is actually ready to recognize. It is almost like the old fairy tale about the Emperor’s new clothes where the people who are closest to the Emperor are so concerned about maintaining their position that they are not willing to step back and look at the Emperor and see that he has nothing on. They are certainly not willing to speak out and say it. The world, the population, is ready to acknowledge that there is a certain group of people on the planet that have no respect, no caring, no love, no humanity when it comes to the population at large. They are willing to kill or sacrifice any number of human beings for whatever cause they have in their heads. It is a complete disrespect for life.

Deciding we want no more dictators

This is something the world is ready to recognize. They do not need to acknowledge ascended master teachings before they can recognize this. It is possible to have people who are creative thinkers, who can simply look at  history, look at human psychology, what is already known in general psychology. They can put these together and draw this conclusion that we need to recognize that throughout history we have seen this special group of people, who have taken these positions of being dictators and who have no respect for life whatsoever. We need to recognize this openly, acknowledge it. Then we need to make a determination: “We do not want this kind of people to lead us anymore, we do not want this kind of people to attain any position in government, or any other position where they have power over the population on earth.”

The collective consciousness has gradually been brought up to where it is ready to recognize this. What we need you to do as ascended master students is of course to make the calls so that, first of all, the people who can be the forerunners for this awareness will be cut free, will be awakened, will be inspired. They will be able to tune in to the ascended masters (even if they do not recognize us consciously) and receive these ideas where it suddenly snaps into focus, their consciousness shifts and they see: “Oh but the dictator has nothing on!” They see the naked truth of who these beings are.

They may not have the concept of fallen beings but they see they have no respect for life. This is what needs to be seen, because (especially in the modern democracies) most people have that respect for life. As Archangel Michael said, they have risen above this level of consciousness where they would ever dream of perpetrating some aggressive actions upon other people. They would never dream of assembling an army and conquering another nation, they have transcended that. Therefore, they are ready to see that it was never really the people as such who assembled armies and conquered territories. It was only that small group of people who had no respect for life.

Even dictators have the consent of the governed

Listen to a recording of this dictation (subscribers only) 

Ascended Master Archangel Michael through Kim Michaels, May 3, 2019. This dictation was given at a conference in Seoul, Korea.

I AM Michael, the Archangel or if you prefer, the Ascended Master Archangel Michael. Why do we say that an archangel is an ascended master? Well, because we want you all to realize that there are no divisions in the ascended realm. I am not in any way different from or separated from or in opposition to any other being who is ascended because you ascend by overcoming all the divisions that are so common on earth.

We are very grateful for all of you who are part of this conference. Those of you who are physically here, those of you who are connected via the Internet and those who will later study and apply the teachings. Why have we chosen this topic of ending the era of dictatorships on earth? Well, because we intend to give a series of conferences that are focused on giving you the tools to raise the earth out of specific conditions that we have evaluated you are ready to begin to work on and that the planet is ready to begin to work on, given the state of the collective consciousness.

Raising the collective consciousness

What is the state of the collective consciousness? It is something that you who are ascended master students (and all who have been ascended master students now for nearly a century) have been helping to raise. We have from a very early stage in our revealing teachings through sponsored messengers, given the concept that our students can help raise the collective consciousness. We have given tools and decrees and invocations for this specific purpose. Therefore, it is natural that as a part of this raising of the collective consciousness, and as part of the progressive revelation that we are giving, that we will now step up and give a certain amount of tools that are meant to help the planet overcome certain conditions. This will be our focus for this year’s conferences.

You will see that last year, we gave a different set of conferences where we gave you tools for raising your personal awareness, especially for healing the birth trauma and earth trauma [See the book Healing Your Spiritual Traumas and other books in that series]. These tools are of course still valid and will be valid for a long time to come, especially for when new people come in and find the teachings. You can resolve your own psychology to the highest possible degree before you start using these tools for transcending the planetary consciousness—for raising the planetary consciousness.

The tools we are going to give here (during this year’s conferences and the other tools we have given for raising the earth) will be most effective if the people who give them have already raised their personal awareness and overcome, especially the birth trauma and the earth trauma, or at least begun to work on it. That way, you will have the greatest impact. That way, you will not be seeking to change the earth based on your birth or earth trauma. Therefore, you are not colored by that trauma so that you direct your energy into a vision that is a human vision, or that you do it with feelings that are human feelings. Naturally, the more neutral you are, the more effective you are in using these tools, giving the invocations and the decrees.

Truly, my beloved, we are not asking any of you to be perfect, to be enlightened, to be in some specific state of consciousness before you start using our tools. But we have now given you a set of tools that can help you truly resolve the deeper aspects of your psychology. We want you to know of course that the more you resolve, the more effective you will be. This is not to discourage anyone from using the tools at whatever level of consciousness you are at. But we do want to let you know that we have in previous ascended master dispensations seen that people have used our tools, used the decrees, with a certain fear-based state of consciousness, with a certain fear-based vision. We are encouraging you very strongly to recognize if you have this in yourself, and to use the tools for healing your psychology to overcome this so that you do not use our present tools with a fear-based state of mind.

Overcoming your fear of dark forces

We know, my beloved, that when we make you aware of many conditions that are going on here on this planet, it is unavoidable that some of you will react with a certain fear or trepidation. We have given many teachings on the fallen beings and the dark forces that are not commonly known by people. Naturally, as an ascended master student, when you first start to awaken to the reality that there is so much more to know here on earth than what you were told in kindergarten, then you will go through a period where you are somewhat fearful of this. You are somewhat fearful of the dark forces because you realize they are there and you realize that you have been personally attacked by dark forces, certainly in this embodiment but probably in many embodiments. Of course, this can give you a certain amount of fear when you realize that these dark forces are there and you do not know how you can protect yourself from them.

You understand, my beloved, that (as other masters have said during this last year) we are always facing a certain dilemma as ascended masters. The question is, how much can we reveal? How much teachings can we give you without overwhelming you and without having you plunge into fear? This is always a delicate balance we are walking. I trust that you all realize that with the tools for resolving psychology that we have given you over these last years (for that matter, these last many years), it is possible for you to free yourself of this fear-based reaction. Because the fear-based reaction naturally comes from your outer self (or selves) because your Christ Self, your I AM Presence, they have no fear.

I trust you can actually see (when you begin to lock in to what we have taught you about the Conscious You) that the Conscious You has no fear either. The Conscious You, when it is conscious of who and what it is, is simply observing life on earth in a neutral state of mind. Fear does not reside in the Conscious You. The Conscious You has no extension. There is no room for fear in the Conscious You so where can fear reside? Only in one of these separate selves, one of these external selves. It may be your primal self (which naturally reacted with fear to what you were exposed to by the fallen beings), but it may be also be any number of other separate selves. You now have the tools to work on this and I encourage you that if you look at yourself, and if you feel that you have a fear-based reaction to any teaching we give, then do not use these tools for trying to change the world right away. Instead, take a period of time, however long you need it individually, to free yourself from this fear-based self or these fear-based selves. For most of you, you probably have several based on the very turbulent history of this planet. Take some time to overcome the fear until you can give these tools for changing the world from a neutral state of mind. I of course, AM the Archangel of the First Ray and it is my task and my joy to help you overcome fear and the doubt that is always the starting point of fear. Therefore, you can of course use the invocations and the decrees to me but you can also simply ask me. Ask me to help you overcome the fear and ask me to help you see the selves that you have that are the repositories of fear in your being. You can ask me to help you see where the fear resides in your four lower bodies.

You will find that although most people would think of fear as a feeling that is associated with the emotional body, there is actually a mental fear and an identity level fear. You can ask me to help you see this, you can ask other masters to help you see this, so that you can come to the point where you are free from fear. You may not be totally free from fear for some time, but at least you can come to a point where you are not driven by fear, you are not colored by fear and you do not fear a particular response from the dark forces to you giving invocations. Naturally, you can give the decrees and invocations to me for your protection, and when you know and experience that my protection works, then you are not overwhelmed by fear.

How we become broadcast stations for the masters

Fear is of course the primary feeling that has been used by dictators throughout the ages to suppress the population. Therefore, if you are to be effective in helping raise the earth to the point where the era of dictatorships will come to an end, you need to raise yourself above that fear. Naturally, we are not expecting that this conference will, in itself, end the era of dictators on earth, but we are very happy to see so many people who have chosen to attend this conference. We are very careful not to give you the sense that numbers are so important. But it is of course obvious that the more people you are, the more of a multiplication factor there will be. Your decrees, your invocations will be multiplied by the number of people that are present. Therefore, we are gratified that so many of you are here so that this conference can be an important turning point towards that process where people use the invocations that will be based on the dictations, and then gradually this will end the era of dictatorships on earth.

Now, you realize I trust that even though you are now sitting, listening to me speak through the messenger, you are not passive participants of this conference. Each and every one of you is an active participant in this conference. You may be sitting, you may be taking in, but I trust you realize that as you are taking in the vibration, the light and the words we are releasing, you are at the same time, if you are willing, becoming a broadcast station. Your aura, your four lower bodies, your chakras are broadcast stations for sending our light and our vibration into the collective consciousness. Therefore, the more you can tune in to the Presence of the master who is speaking, the more effective you will be as a broadcast station.

You understand, my beloved, the basic equation. We of the ascended masters do not have authority to act in the physical realm. You who are embodied in the physical realm, you have authority by your free will to act. Now, of course the messenger has allowed us to speak through him and this has an effect, and in a sense we could have the messenger stand alone and take dictations and it would have an effect. But by you being here and also becoming broadcast stations in the physical octave, the effect is multiplied manifold and that is why it is important for you not to see yourselves as passive recipients of what we are releasing. You are active participants in this conference. There is a figure-eight flow from us Above to you below and back again.

This is guided by the eternal law that Jesus exposed when he was on earth 2,000 years ago, when he talked about the multiplication of the talents. As you become a broadcast station for what you receive from us, as you allow your chakras to radiate it into the collective consciousness, the more you radiate into the collective, the more is returned to us Above, whereby we can multiply what you have multiplied and thereby increase the figure-eight flow.

Therefore, the highest potential for any ascended master conference is that you allow yourselves to spiral upwards in these coming days. You focus your attention on us, on the Presence of the ascended masters. Naturally, you can sit at home, you can read our dictations, you can listen to them, you can give our invocations. But the value of coming together at a conference is that you are setting aside your normal daily activities, your normal daily life. This gives you (especially, my beloved, if you minimize the use of your smart phones over these next days) an opportunity to raise your consciousness beyond what you could do in your normal environment and your normal state of awareness.

You have the opportunity here that you can all spiral upwards. We are ready to help you spiral upwards. We are already up, but we are ready to help you spiral upwards and come as close to our vibration as you are willing to go. Because you are so many people together, you can collectively spiral much higher that you could do alone. This is the potential for any ascended master conference, but it is especially important when dealing with a heavy topic, such as the topic of dictatorships. I wish to give you some opening thoughts on dictators, and how we see it from the ascended realm.

When matter and you do not matter

Listen to a recording of this dictation (subscribers only) 

Ascended Master Saint Germain through Kim Michaels, January 16, 2019.

I AM the Ascended Master Saint Germain, and for this seventh and final initiation at my retreat, I wish to take this in a slightly different direction. I said in a previous discourse that you need to come to a point where “matter does not matter.” For this seventh initiation, you need to come to a point where you do not matter.

The gravitational force

Now, monitor yourself when you hear or read this statement: “You do not matter.” What is the reaction you feel in yourself? This will give you some idea that there is a self in you that wants to matter, that needs to matter, perhaps even has an obsessive-compulsive need to matter, to make a difference.

Now, what have we told you is the goal of the initiations you go through between the 48th and the 96th level? It is to raise yourself above the pull of the mass consciousness. You may liken this to the force of gravity. In a sense, the mass consciousness acts like a gravitational force that seeks to pull everyone down to what we might call the lowest common denominator—which is not necessarily the lowest but it is the average level of the collective consciousness. Certainly, there is a range within the collective where there are some people that are lower, some people that are higher but there is a certain average, and the gravitational force of the mass consciousness seeks to pull everyone down at least to that average level.

In order to rise above this and walk the spiritual path, you have to pull yourself free from that gravitational pull. It is something that requires a certain amount of determination, will power, a certain amount of momentum and “go.” We might even say that it requires a certain amount of struggle. Although what the other Chohans have attempted to help you come to, is the point where you break free of the sense of struggle. You no longer feel you are struggling against the mass consciousness.

How do you break free of the collective consciousness, the mass consciousness? We are on a planet called earth, which has a very high density of matter and a very strong collective consciousness that is at a fairly low level, compared to the level of Christhood. It does require quite an effort, quite a determination, to break free. Now, if you compare this to what it takes to break free from the force of gravity, you will see that if this is done the traditional way, you build a rocket and it has to have a huge motor. It has to have a lot of fuel so that as it burns, that fuel can push the rocket up to where it is finally free from the gravitational pull of the earth and can now go into orbit. When a spaceship is in orbit, there is no force pulling it back down to earth. It is literally orbiting in a certain orbit around the planet and can keep doing so almost indefinitely. There is no longer any effort required.

What I seek to help you accomplish with these seven levels of initiation in my course, is to get you to a point where you (so to speak) have reached an orbit where you are free of the gravitational pull of the mass consciousness. Now, contrary to a spaceship, this does not mean that I want you to stay at that level indefinitely. I do not want you to keep going around and around at this level of consciousness. I want you, of course, to continue to grow towards the 144th level.

Nevertheless, there can come that point where you have reached a certain orbit and now, at least to some degree, the prince of this world comes and has nothing in you. In other words, if we define the prince of this world as the collective consciousness, the collective consciousness has nothing in you whereby it can pull you back. Now, this does not mean that another prince of this world, namely the fallen beings, will not have something in you. They will have something in you, to some degree, until the 144th level, although there will, of course, come that point where you start seeing through all of their schemes. Therefore, you are, for all practical purposes, not fooled into being pulled into them anymore.

Going into orbit

What I am saying here is that there can come that point where you are now in orbit, you have launched yourself so high above the collective consciousness that you can go into an orbit where you are not in danger of sliding back down. This, of course, is the point I want you to get to as a result of following these many levels of initiation, in this entire course of the seven rays. What will it take for you to go into orbit and be free of the gravitational pull of the mass consciousness? You know from a rocket that you have a huge rocket that sits on the ground but it is not just one rocket—it has several levels. It has a huge booster motor that is meant to take it up to a certain height and then what does the rocket do? Well, it separates itself from that motor, that whole unit, that bottom level and it just lets it fall back to earth.

What have you done to raise yourself from the 48th to the 96th level? You have used a vehicle and that vehicle is a self. The self is made up of several internal spirits, as we have talked about during this course. It is really more than an internal spirit and that is why I prefer to call it a self because a self can have different layers. An internal spirit has one narrowly focused program. It is like a program on your computer that is designed to do a very specific task, such as, for example, a calculator or an email program. This is an internal spirit, it has a specific task, a specific programming. A self can be more complex, can have different elements, different levels, even different internal spirits, even different selves.

You have built a self that was the vehicle you used to go from the 48th to the 96th level. Again, there is no blame here. This is what we all had to do to raise ourselves above the collective consciousness. You need to recognize here that if you are to go above the 96th level and if you are to pass the crucial initiation of the 96th level, that self needs to go. You need to let it drop from you and let it fall back down to earth. How can you do this?

The self for which matter matters

You can do this only by accepting, by pondering on my statement that: “You do not matter.” What is the “you” that does not matter? It is precisely that “you,” that self that you used as your vehicle to get to the 96th level. That self is very much a self that reacts to matter. It is created in reaction to matter, or rather the state of matter as it is seen through the collective consciousness.

I have made quite the effort to help you see that there is a difference between what science would call the objective reality and the perceived reality. In other words, there is what we can call an “objective reality,” in the sense that this is the state of the earth that was created by the Elohim. Then, there is what we could call a “subjective perception” of reality, which is the collective consciousness. The collective consciousness has a specific view of matter. It was the collective consciousness that created the current density of matter. Therefore, the collective consciousness cannot overcome the current density of matter. Even Albert Einstein said: “You cannot overcome a problem with the same consciousness that created the problem.”

How do you overcome the current density of matter? Only by reaching for something higher, which is the Christ consciousness. At the 48th level of consciousness, you can reach beyond that level to get something that is a step higher. That is an element of the Christ consciousness that then takes you to the 49th level. You can continue to do this until you reach the 96th level. You need the Christ, the Christ consciousness, that universal awareness. You need that to get from the 48th to the 96th level. At each level, you are receiving a gift from the universal Christ consciousness or from the individualized consciousness through an ascended master, your own Christ self and so on.

You cannot pull yourself up by your own bootstraps. You cannot go from the 48th to the 96th level without receiving something from the Christ. What does that mean when you go above the 96th level? Of course, you still need to receive something from the Christ to get to the 144th level. For each of the levels above the 96th, you need to receive a gift from the Christ, but over the 96th you have the potential to shift into accepting that the Christ is not an external force that comes to you from without. It becomes an internal force that comes to you from within. This means that you also become more of an instrument for the Christ to express itself and help other people. You shift from the external view of the external savior to the internal Christ that you begin to embody in greater and greater measure as you approach the 144th level.

Overcoming the things that take your peace

Listen to a recording of this dictation (subscribers only) 

Ascended Master Saint Germain through Kim Michaels, January 14, 2019.

I AM the Ascended Master Saint Germain, and for this sixth level of initiation at my retreat, we are, of course, dealing primarily with the Sixth Ray of Peace. What does it take to be at peace at your level of consciousness on a planet like earth? Well, the question should really be reformulated: “What is the ‘you’ that has the potential to be at peace on earth?”

Making peace with having an outer self

We have, throughout this course, made it clear to you that you have an outer self and you have what we have called the Conscious You, which we could also call the inner self or the pure self. We have made it clear that when you start this course at the 48th level, you are fairly identified with the outer self, the Conscious You is fairly identified with the outer self. You are not completely identified with it or you would not be able to start the course. We have also made it clear that the major purpose of this course is to gradually decrease the Conscious You’s sense of identification with the outer self. This now comes full circle where, at this level, you are ready to make a certain shift in your attitude, the way you look at yourself, and take a major step forward in this process of dis-identification.

We have made it clear that as you descend into embodiment on earth, you take on all of these illusions that correspond to the 144 levels of consciousness. Even though the goal of this course is to bring you to the 96th level, you still have quite a few illusions that you have not shed at that level and that you are not meant to have shed. This means that you will have elements of an outer self with you as long as you are in embodiment on earth. As you go higher towards the 144th level, it is actually these elements of the outer self that keep you in embodiment. They keep you tied to the physical body, otherwise you would simply not be able to stay in the physical body but would go out of it, even to the point where you might actually withdraw the life force. It can even happen that you could withdraw this prematurely, before you are actually quite ready to ascend. That would mean you would have to take another embodiment. Therefore, above a certain level, the outer self that you have left is a safety mechanism.

You realize, of course, that below the 48th level (where people are totally identified with the outer self) the outer self does not in any way assist your spiritual growth. What you do between the 48th and the 96th level is that you start dis-identifying yourself from that outer self, which means that you are not pulled back down by the collective consciousness. You are not pulled into following the currents in the mass consciousness. You are, so to speak, building an individuality that helps you separate yourself from the mass consciousness. You are not doing the things that all of these other people are doing. When you go above the 48th level, there comes a point where the outer self you have left is not actually a hindrance to your spiritual growth. This happens when you come to the point where you make peace with what I have just told you. You make peace with the fact that as long as you are remaining in embodiment, you will have elements of the outer self.

Giving up the dream of reaching an ultimate level

This means that you will have to give up a dream that many spiritual people have. It is even a dream that is very much in the collective consciousness and you see it outplayed in different ways. For example, you see some children’s games where there is a certain zone that is defined as the home base or the home zone. If the children run into that zone, they cannot be taken by the other team. They are “home free,” so to speak.

You also have the dream that many people have of winning the lottery so that one day, you just have more money than you could even spend for the rest of this lifetime. Or you have other dreams that people have of attaining immortality or perfect health, or some other state where now they can feel completely safe on earth. There are many spiritual people, including ascended master students, who when they find a spiritual teaching that talks about rising to higher levels of consciousness, they then formulate this dream that one day they will reach a level of consciousness where now they will be “home free.” They will be enlightened. They will reach cosmic consciousness. They will be un-ascended ascended masters. They will be ego-free. They will be whatever people can dream of, but it is, in a sense, a dream of being on earth without being affected by anything on earth.

Now, it is important to look at this dream and recognize that you have it. All people have it. I had it when I was in my earlier embodiments and was not close to my ascension. We all have had this dream because it is part of the collective and we all live inside the collective. We only get free of the collective by looking at what is in the collective and overcoming it.

What you need to do here, at this level of my retreat, is to simply shift your mind a little bit. You need to recognize that you will have an element of the outer self with you as long as you are in embodiment. Then, you need to accept this and make peace with it. Of course, you will not be identified with that outer self, as you are not fully identified with it now. This means that the outer self does not really matter anymore. Once you come to the point where you are not identified with it and it is not running your life, then it does not really matter.

The outer self and your Divine plan

You realize that there can come a point where the outer self you have left is not really preventing you from fulfilling the goals you have set in your Divine plan. Therefore, you can outplay some outer self to a certain degree and it does not detract from your Divine plan. One of the ways this can manifest is that you can have certain legitimate desires of what you want to experience on earth. It is obvious that when you are above the 96th level, you do not have an outer self that wants to manipulate and control other people or make them feel bad or whatever it may be. You do not have an outer self that makes you want to do something illegal in order to get money, for example. You have risen above the more egotistical aspects of the outer self.

You might very well have had a long history on this planet where there are certain things, certain desires you have, certain experiences you would like to have and you might not feel that you have had quite enough of those experiences. Well, in that case, it is perfectly possible to continue to walk the path above the 96th level, still have certain desires that you have and you are still seeking to fulfill those desires but doing so in a balanced manner that does not disturb the progression of your Divine plan.

Just as one example, many, many people on earth still do not feel that they have quite fulfilled their desire for sex. Again, we have never said that when you reach the 96th level, you need to be celibate for the rest of your life. This has never been a goal that we have defined for you. If you exercise sexual activity in a balanced and responsible manner, you can perfectly well have sex and it does not detract from your Divine plan. This may go for other desires as well, such as the desire to have a certain materialistic lifestyle, to have a nice house, to travel and to see different places of the earth, whatever desires you may have that are not destructive desires.

You need to make peace with the fact that you have an outer self, that you will have an outer self, that it may affect the way you look at life and that it may pull you into seeking to fulfill certain desires. You need to be aware that this is okay as long as it does not disturb the progression of your Divine plan. This means that you go into a state where you are accepting that you have an outer self. You are not accepting that this will never change.

You are constantly monitoring yourself and your reactions. You realize that for each level of consciousness that you rise above the 96th level, you are going to have to see a particular illusion of the outer self and let it go. There is an inner spirit, there is a certain self that you need to let die. You are monitoring this constantly—not that you are in any way imbalanced about it, you are just being aware. You are monitoring your own reactions but you are not disturbed by it. You are not feeling that you are imperfect or not good enough because you have this outer self. You actually come to the point where, as other Chohans have talked about, you accept yourself for who you are right now. You accept that you are at a certain level of the path and that it is simply natural, inevitable for you to have a certain outer self.

The way you see things co-creates those things

Listen to a recording of this dictation (subscribers only) 

Ascended Master Saint Germain through Kim Michaels, January 13, 2019.

I AM the Ascended Master Saint Germain, and for this fifth lesson we are dealing with the Fifth Ray of Vision. Vision, my beloved, is not what it has been made out to be, what you have come to see it as, as you grew up in the modern world. The image you have been given since you were a child is that vision is a passive thing. There is some objective thing out there, there is something called light that hits that thing, bounces back from the thing and then enters the retina of your eye where it is transformed into an image that your brain can see and process.

Vision changes over time

We have talked about this before of how this is an illusion because vision is not passive. The fallen beings want you to think it is passive and that is why they have managed to make all societies on earth bring up their children with this illusion of the passivity of vision.

Vision is, as we have mentioned before, an active thing. We need to talk more about why it is active and how this works. This, then, ties in with the lists I asked you to make in my last discourse. I had you make a list of things that absolutely cannot be changed. If we think about the wording here, I was playing a little bit of a trick on you by saying that I wanted you to make a list of “things” that absolutely could not be changed, or at least that no power on earth could change. I have said before that there is a certain matrix for the earth that was set and defined by the Elohim and there is no power on earth, not even the entire collective consciousness, that could change this. So there are things that absolutely cannot be changed.

Technology changes vision

Then, of course, you have been brought up in a world where there is a lot of technology. This brings us to the second list of things that could be changed but only by physical, technological means or by physical labor. Of course, modern technology (inspired primarily by me but also other ascended masters) has actually, within the last decades, made discoveries that in a way challenge many of the previous views of life. There were things a hundred years ago that people would say absolutely could not be changed but now you know that they can be changed.

The atom can be split, the very building block of matter, as it was seen at one point, can be split. There was a time when people would absolutely have denied that this was a possibility. You see that there has been some movement because of technology where things have now become possible that were not possible even decades ago. People in general have, of course, not adjusted their view of life based on this. I need you to start adjusting your view of life. I need you to recognize here what technology actually is. Why do you have, again to use this example, technology today that can split the atom? Why do you have technology that can even split subatomic particles into smaller components? It is because you have knowledge today that was not there in previous times.

Before Albert Einstein’s theory of relativity came out in 1905, there was no knowledge of even the theoretical possibility of splitting the atom. That was because, at the time, scientists had a completely dualistic view of the world where they saw an absolute barrier between matter and energy. The world was made of two separate components and one could not be transformed into the other. Einstein, then, discovers the theory of relativity and realizes that all matter is actually a form of energy. This is completely in line with what I have told you previously. You need to start seeing that behind all of the visible forms that you see, there is pure energy. There is a complex pattern of energy waves, of on-and-off signals, of interference patterns between energies. This is the deeper reality.

Seeing everything as fluid

The reason this is important is that when you see that there is an energetic reality below the level of matter (or the macroscopic level), you realize that this level of energy is fluid. You have certain physical phenomena, such as Mount Everest or any other mountain that you have personally seen. You look at this massive rock and you see that it is beyond any power to change. It is solid, it is massive. When you look beyond the physical level, the macroscopic level, you see that the deeper reality is that even this solid mountain is made out of vibrating energy and the energy is much more fluid than matter. There is at least a theoretical possibility that the energy that makes up the mountain could change. Of course, if the energy changes, matter must change with it. What Einstein actually did was that he changed the traditional view, the classical physical view, of cause and effect.

This, unfortunately, is something that scientists in general have not been willing to acknowledge. They have not been willing to acknowledge it at the surface level because they do not want to give up materialism, they do not want to see a link between matter and mind. At the deeper level, it is truly because they are blinded by the fallen beings who have managed to infiltrate the scientific establishment as they had influenced the Catholic church during the Middle Ages. (But that is beside the point, as I do not really want to go into a political discussion here.)

Welcome to reality simulator earth

Listen to a recording of this dictation (subscribers only) 

Ascended Master Saint Germain through Kim Michaels, January 9, 2019.

I AM the Ascended Master Saint Germain, and for this fourth lesson at my retreat, we are dealing with the Fourth Ray of Purity or Acceleration. What is it I intend to purify? It is your view of the material realm, the physical octave, the physical universe.

My beloved, I have talked about how everything is made out of matter, which is really made of smaller particles, going all the way to energy. Truly, what is energy? Well, energy can be compared to what you have in the computer world where you deal with these on-off signals. Something is either on or off, only, of course, the energy that makes up the material universe is more complex than what you have in the computer world. So far, the level of computing that you have is very primitive because it is binary. It is based on only two possible signals, on or off.

The on-of screen of the matter universe

In reality, you are dealing with a system that has not just an on or off state. It has an on state and it has an off state but the on state is not simply that something is on. When something is on, it can take on seven different shadings or colorings, depending on the seven rays. In other words, you can imagine that the physical universe is made up (and this is the way it is most easy for you to see it) of a screen. The Ma-ter Light forms a screen. The screen is normally blank (or rather it is not normally blank but before anything was created, before the earth was created, the screen was blank) and then the Elohim imposed certain matrices on the screen that then caused these tiny little dots to turn on—and to turn on with the colorings of each one of the seven rays. You now have this screen that turns on, and it has a very complex pattern of these tiny dots that are colored according to the seven rays.

Understand, of course, that what I am giving you here is a symbolic representation that is not entirely linearly accurate. It is adapted to your current level of consciousness so it is something you can grasp with the images, with the understanding, you have of the universe. As you grow towards the 144th level, I do not want you to think that this is going to be the final understanding of how the universe works because you can, of course, attain deeper and deeper levels of understanding.

Nevertheless, for this, we will imagine that you are inside a room and the room is like a half a sphere. The sphere is like a dome above you and on the inside of this sphere is almost like a television screen where you have all of these dots that can turn on or off, which means that they can display absolutely any image that could possibly be imagined. Realize that this is how the universe works on planet earth. This is how planet earth was created. It was created by the Elohim by turning on all of these small signals and giving them a certain coloring according to each of the seven rays. This does not mean that everything you see on earth, including the unbalanced manifestations, is made up of the pure coloring of one the seven rays or a combination of the seven rays. There are also perversions of the seven rays and these are, of course, the ones that are used to create the unbalanced manifestations that you see today.

The earth is a reality simulator

The purpose for which I am giving you this illustration is to help you see that planet earth is simply a screen that can display various images. I am not saying that the earth could display any image because the Elohim chose a certain matrix for the earth, but within that matrix, the earth can display a wide variety of images. This means that the earth is capable of displaying the current imbalances that you see, but it is equally capable of displaying the harmonious state you had before humankind went into duality and before the fallen beings came here. It could also display an even higher state than you had back then, a higher state than was there when the Elohim created the earth. It was, of course, the intention that co-creators should raise the earth up from the original creation, and the first three waves of lifestreams did indeed do this.

What does this actually mean? It means that we could question: “Is the earth a real world?” I know we touched upon this in my first lesson but I am returning to it because you have now had time to process this idea. The reality that you come to is that the earth is not a real world. What, then, is the earth? We can compare it to what you today call a reality simulator. You know that you have these flight simulators. You may even have had one of these on your computer at one point. The computer screen displays what you would see from the cockpit of an airplane when you are taking off, flying and landing. You have many others of these simulators. You have virtual reality goggles today that you can put on and it seems like you are in an entirely different world.

What I want you to ponder with your conscious mind (because you are already seeing, experiencing, this at my retreat) is that the material universe is simply a reality simulator. What does it actually mean? First of all, it means that whatever you see on earth is not a real world, it is simulated but it is not simulated in order to seem like a simulation. It is simulated in order to seem real. You can go into a movie theatre and you know that the movie screen can display any movie. You also know that whatever movie you are watching in the movie theatre, it is not the real world you are watching. It is all made up, it is make-believe. You know this because you walked into the theatre and you know that when you go outside the theatre, you are seeing your hometown and not some little village in the Old West.

Now, imagine that you were born in the movie theatre, you grew up in the movie theatre you have never been outside. You have no idea that there is anything outside the movie theatre and that is your situation as being in embodiment on earth. You were born inside the reality simulator, for that matter you have lived inside it for many lifetimes. When you are born, you have no frame of reference that there is anything outside the simulator. You do not know that this is a simulation so how can you question it? You have nothing to compare it to. All you have ever seen and experienced is the simulation.

You may have some inner intuitive sensations based on a past life, maybe going back to when you came as an avatar, or going back as an original inhabitant of the earth when you experienced the earth in a purer state. You may have this inner sense that there must be something that is not right here, there must be something different, there must be another way for a world to be. You may even have a sense that you do not really belong here, that this is not your real environment, maybe even a sense that you are not meant to be here and many other sensations like this that spiritual people have. It is probably because you had those sensations that you ended up being a spiritual person who is studying spiritual teachings. Deep within you, you know that there is something beyond the material universe, you sense that there must be a spiritual world, there must be beings in that spiritual world and it must be possible to interact with those beings, which is exactly what you are doing right now. You can have these sensations and what I am asking you to do is to take these sensations and use them as your frame of reference to look at the earth and now recognize with your conscious mind: “This is simply a reality simulator.”

Why the simulation seems real

Once you begin to ponder this idea, and get some intuitive validation that it really is a correct idea, then we can take the next step. Now, we can ask ourselves: “Why is it that the simulation of earth seems real?” We have given you an explanation of this. We have said that there are 144 levels of consciousness. We have said that when you first descend to earth, first take embodiment on earth, you start at the 48th level. We have also said that when you descend into embodiment, you take on an illusion for each of the levels from the 144th level to the 48th level. In other words, for each level of the 144, there is a certain illusion that you need to resolve, a certain enigma, a certain riddle, that you need to resolve before you are free of that level.

In order to descend to the 48th level, you take on an illusion for each of the levels from the 144th to 48th level and it is those illusions that make the earth seem like a real world. Of course, if you descend even below the 48th level (to the lowest level of consciousness), you take on more and more illusions and they make it seem even more real that the earth is an actual world, a world that is what it seems to be to your senses and to your outer mind.

Now, you have risen quite close to the 96th level and we are now dealing with a whole different level of consciousness where you have already shed many of these illusions. That is why you need to, at the conscious level, take this step of recognizing that the earth is a reality simulator. You also need to recognize a deeper understanding of how the earth simulates reality and here we already need to deal with words. What did I just say? “How the earth simulates reality.” You see, my beloved, the earth does not simulate reality. This is an idea that you need to truly ponder so that it is locked into your conscious mind.

The earth is not a living thing that does anything or has any intention. Regardless of what some cultures may project (that nature is a living thing and that it has consciousness, which I am not denying), for the purpose of this initiation, what I want you to focus on is that the earth is a screen, the Ma-ter Light is a screen. It displays whatever image is projected upon it. It has no intention, it has no opinion about what should or should not be projected. It has no opinion about how you should experience what is projected. In other words, the earth does not do anything to you. It is not manipulating your mind, there is nothing here in the reality simulator that is manipulating your mind.

How does the earth simulate reality? It does not! Then, what simulates reality? Your mind, your four lower bodies simulate reality. The sense of reality that you have had about the world here on earth is entirely a product of your mind. This is the crucial idea that you need to get, not only at this level, but you need to keep that idea with you all the way to the 144th level because it is the one idea that will carry you to the 144th level.

What is it that you are dealing with when you go above the 96th level? Well, you are dealing with a different level of initiation than below. Below the 96th level, you are primarily focused on yourself, you see everything from a certain perspective, very centered around yourself. There are many questions you are not even able to ask or consider below that level. When you get to the 96th level, as I already said, the crucial initiation is: Will you continue to focus on yourself or will you focus on the whole?

In order to overcome these illusions (that pull you into focusing on yourself), you need to keep this idea in your mind that the earth does not simulate reality, but that any sense or view of reality that you have concerning the earth is a product of an illusion in your mind. This is a crucial idea, absolutely crucial as far as anything can be absolute inside a reality simulator. Nevertheless, there is something absolute about the reality simulator and that is that absolutely nothing is real. This means that there is absolutely nothing that can stop your spiritual growth, prevent your spiritual growth, hold you back in an illusion—except what is going on in your own mind. There is nothing absolute inside the reality simulator except the belief, the illusion, that you are not willing to question.

Loving your Divine plan more than a daydream 

Listen to a recording of this dictation (subscribers only) 

Ascended Master Saint Germain through Kim Michaels, January 8, 2019.

I AM the Ascended Master Saint Germain. This is the third level of initiation at my retreat, which corresponds to the Seventh Ray of Freedom and the Third Ray of Love. Freedom and love, of course, does not mean free love, as so many people interpreted it back in the 1960’s and beyond. What it does mean is that we need to look at love, and the opposite of anti-love, when it comes to your relationship to the physical realm, the matter realm, the Mother realm. Now, I said in my last discourse that I wish to speak about how you can bring harmony between your spiritual life and your everyday, practical life. This is a topic that is very important for all spiritual people, especially as we move more and more into the Aquarian Age.

Separation between spiritual and everyday activities

My beloved, if you look back at the last 2,000 years in the western world, you will see that the Christian churches have created a relatively clear separation between what you might call spiritual (or at least religious) life and everyday, practical life. Now, in all fairness, this has to some degree been happening because people had to work so hard physically in order to make a living. You could not expect them to work ten hours a day and have much attention or energy left over for any kind of spiritual considerations. For the six days a week where people were working, they could not really focus on anything religious or spiritual so they had the one day where they could go to church.

However, the effect of all of this has been that in the collective consciousness of the West there has been created this very clear distinction between what you call normal, everyday life and a religious or spiritual life. You have many, many people who thought that if they go to church on Sunday, if they confess their sins, if they participate in the Mass and light a candle, then they can go out and live the way they want to live their normal lives for the other six days of the week. People did in many ways make some kind of bargain between God and themselves where they said: “God, I give you Sunday and then you give me the other six days to do what I want. Then, when Sunday comes around again, I go in and confess my sins and I am absolved from whatever I did during the week.”

Now, many, many spiritual people have, especially since the 1960’s, come to an inner realization that this clear separation of “church and state,” so to speak, is no longer valid as we move into a new age. We need to find a different way to look at the spiritual aspect of life and the practical aspect of life. This is a big challenge for many spiritual people and it has, of course, required quite a bit of experimentation on people’s part.

Hatred of the Mother realm

What we need to talk about first is that many spiritual people have built a sort of unrealistic daydream about what it means to live a spiritual life. There are, of course, many individual variations of this. There are also different groupings out there of spiritual and New Age movements where each of them have created their own vision of what it supposedly means to live a spiritual life. Common for many of these visions is that they are based on a certain attitude to the matter realm. This is, of course, also something that goes back, not only in the western Christian tradition but even in the East, in the Hindu and Buddhic traditions. There is a very, very strong beast in the collective consciousness that portrays matter as the enemy of your spiritual growth.

This, my beloved, is a complete illusion, created by the fallen beings. There is no other way to put it. It is a complete illusion, deliberately created by the fallen beings to prevent what they consider a big threat against their rule on earth. You see my beloved, what the fallen beings have done, is they have created this separation because they are in the consciousness of separation so they cannot help but create separation. They have created a separation between groupings of fallen beings. Some are focused on taking control of religion and religious life, others are focused on taking control of the secular life. That is why you have a certain division there. It is basically said that if you obey the fallen beings who control religion on Sunday, then you obey the fallen beings who control secular life on the other six days.

This is an attitude that is based on the fact that the fallen beings themselves hate matter, they hate the Mother realm (the matter realm). They hate it simply because it gives them consequences and they do not like consequences. Fallen beings hate consequences. Many of them believe that if you truly have free will, you should be able to make any choice you want without facing the consequences.

Of course, many spiritual people have, as we have talked about before, taken over some of this attitude, and it is not realistic. We have said it before: If you make a choice and there was no physical consequence, how would you know that you had made a choice? If you did not experience a consequence, how could you adjust your state of mind accordingly? If you cannot adjust your state of mind, how can you actually grow?

You see, for the fallen beings, growth is not the purpose of life because they long ago refused to grow, refused to transcend themselves. Their goal is to set themselves up in a powerful and privileged position and maintain that position indefinitely. What you see here is that the goal of the fallen beings is completely different from the goal of true spiritual seekers. Therefore, why does it make any sense to you, as a spiritual seeker, that you would have the same attitude to the matter realm as the fallen beings have?

Why spiritual people dislike matter

Now, we understand, of course, why so many spiritual people have this attitude. It is because you have also experienced consequences, or rather, you have experienced conditions in the physical that were very harsh and very unpleasant.

We have given you teachings about avatars who have come to earth and often been severely attacked by the fallen beings, maybe even tortured and killed brutally in their first embodiment. This is not a direct consequence of something you did, because you did not do anything to the fallen beings. It is a consequence of you making a choice to come to a planet as difficult as earth where the fallen beings have such influence. You see, it is not a direct consequence but it is an indirect consequence.

Naturally, on a planet like earth where there is so much violence, so much struggle, it is very, very understandable that people build this almost hatred or at least resentment towards the Mother realm, the matter realm. It is the matter realm that outpictures these very harsh, very unpleasant consequences. In many cases, it is your physical body that gives you this very intense pain and, naturally, the physical body is made of matter. Again, we have said this over and over and over again: There is no blame here from our side. It is perfectly understandable that so many spiritual people have this resentment of the matter realm, of the physical octave, of the Mother realm. You have now reached a point on your spiritual path, in this course, where it is time to just realize that while it is understandable that you have a certain reaction, it is no longer (or in fact it never was) constructive for you to have this attitude.

Is anything on earth real?

Listen to a recording of this dictation (subscribers only) 

Ascended Master Saint Germain through Kim Michaels, January 4, 2019.

I AM the Ascended Master Saint Germain, and for this second installment of the work you are doing at my retreat, I desire you to consider in your conscious mind: “What is real and what is not real?” Now, of course, philosophers have for centuries had various discussions and debates amongst themselves about the nature of reality, about what can be considered real and what cannot be considered real. Let me give this a more practical slant.

The reality simulator room

When you attend my retreat at this level, I have a special room where you can go. The room is a room that is not just circular but it is like a sphere inside, this means that you are seeing all the way around whatever is projected on the inside of the walls of this room. These walls form a screen upon which I can project any image whatsoever. Now, the important point of this exercise is that as you go into this room – and I know, of course, you are not in your physical body, you are in your identity body – you experience that you are inside a real world.

There is nothing that allows you to distinguish that you are not in a real world. In the beginning of this exercise you are thinking, you are feeling, you are experiencing that you are inside a real world. As we move further along in the exercise, we teach you that there are various ways whereby you, just with the power of your mind, can affect what is projected on the inside of the sphere. In other words, you realize that you are in a world that is not as real as it appeared to you when you entered it. It is not completely real in the sense that it is created by some outside force that has nothing to do with your mind. It is not real in the sense that you often consider the “real world” on earth where you think that this world cannot be influenced by the powers of your mind.

You learn gradually that you can actually use the powers of your mind to influence what seems like a real world. Now, I need you, as you are doing the exercises for this lesson, to ponder this with your conscious mind. Naturally, I am not interested in having you come to the conclusion that nothing in the physical octave is real. There are people, even some spiritual students, who have suddenly come to doubt that anything in the physical world is real and they can often go through an identity crisis and even end up in a mental institution. This, of course, is not what I desire to see for you. Therefore, we will consider what it means whether something is real or not.

What does reality mean?

The division I want to create here is that you know very well, as an ascended master student, that you are not living in a world that is exclusively inhabited by human beings. You are not alone, you are with seven billion other human beings on the planet, but you also know that there are other types of beings in the world in which you live. There are ascended masters, there are Elohim, there are angels and archangels and there is the Creator at the top of the pyramid. The distinction I want to make is this: What has been created by beings who are at a higher level of consciousness than human beings, is real. In other words, what has been created by the ascended masters, by the Elohim is real in the sense that it is not within the powers of the human mind to influence this.

We have given you many teachings about the creation of the universe, the creation of the different spheres. We have said that planet earth was created by seven spiritual beings, called the Elohim. They came together, used their co-creative powers to create this planet. They created it in a purer, in a higher, state than what you see today. When it comes to the original creation of the Elohim, the original matrix that the Elohim defined for earth, we will say for this exercise that this is real. This has reality to it. You can go to even higher levels. There are, of course, many ascended beings that are beyond the level of the Elohim that created the earth. There are different spheres that go all the way up to the Creator.

Nevertheless, the point here is simply this: There are certain things in the universe in which you live, even in the physical octave, that are created by beings who are in an ascended state of consciousness. In other words, they are permanent beings, they are not in duality, they do not see themselves as separate beings, they are one with the whole. They have created certain structures in the world that you live in, and for the purpose of this exercise, we will define these structures as real. There are certainly aspects of the earth that are real based on this definition. There is a certain reality to the planet itself and to some of the features and characteristics that the planet has.

How earth became what it is today

However, we now need to define that there is a distinction to be made because you know that the earth is not in its original state, in its pristine state. It is not in the same state in which it was created by the Elohim. What this means is that we need to consider how the planet has come to be in its current situation, in its current state. We have explained to you that this has happened over a very, very long time span. We have explained that when the planet was originally created, several life-waves of co-creators descended to earth. They also ascended from earth and while they were on earth, they actually built on to the foundation created by the Elohim and made the planet even more beautiful, even more detailed. They co-created the earth.

We have also explained that there came a turning point where more and more of the lifestreams that embodied on earth at that time started to go into the state of duality and separation. They gradually started a downward spiral and this has led to the current situation. These life-waves, these lifestreams, de-created the earth by taking it down from the level of the Elohim, so the earth is now quite far below that state.

What you recognize here is that when we define that what has been created by ascended beings is real, then we also need to say that that which has been de-created by unascended beings is unreal in comparison. This means that many of the current conditions and characteristics that you see on earth are unreal according to this definition. Of course, we could have other definitions of what is real and unreal, but based on this definition, we need to say that most of the conditions you see on earth today, are unreal.

You are an artist sculpting with pure energy

Listen to a recording of this dictation (subscribers only) 

Ascended Master Saint Germain through Kim Michaels, January 2, 2019.

I AM the Ascended Master Saint Germain, and it is my great joy to give you this first installment in the levels of initiation that you go through under me in my retreat, which has been called the Cave of Symbols. Let me begin by talking about this retreat.

You may be familiar with previous ascended master dispensations and teachings that talk about this retreat in more detail. You may have seen pictures of how there is supposedly great halls that have various occult or esoteric symbols that supposedly have some special significance. If you know these symbols, you will be able to precipitate anything you want. This, of course, is a teaching that was given for a lower level of consciousness than the teachings we are giving today. Therefore, we had to appeal to what people wanted at that level of consciousness. The previous Chohans have done everything they could to help you rise above that level of consciousness so you are now ready for a higher teaching.

The true meaning of symbols

What does it truly mean that my retreat is the cave of “symbols?” Well, in order to understand this, let me reach back to something that was taught by the ancient Greek philosopher Plato quite a number of years ago. Plato said that beyond the physical, material world there is a higher realm, a realm of what he called “ideal forms.” These ideal forms could also be said to be symbols. It was the interaction of these ideal forms in the higher world that determined what would be manifest in the physical realm and what form things would take here in the physical realm. This is a more accurate description of the Cave of Symbols but we can, of course, go further today.

We have given you teachings that you have a physical body but beyond that you have an emotional, mental and identity body. How do you co-create? Well, we have taught you that you receive light and energy from your I AM Presence. As this energy passes through the three higher bodies, it takes on the forms of whatever structures, images, symbols, forms you have in those three higher bodies. This is truly a representation of the co-creative process.

What Plato called the “world of ideal forms” was to some degree the spiritual realm, the ascended realm, but it could also very well be said to be your three higher bodies. You have certain forms in the three higher bodies. In your three higher bodies you may indeed have certain forms that are more ideal, more pure, more elaborate, more detailed than what is actually manifest in the physical realm. The reality is that most people have a certain ideal form, ideal image, ideal symbol in their three higher bodies. The question now becomes: “Why can they not manifest that in the physical realm?”

People with a self-centered vision

You will know, when you look at humankind, that people are at many, many different levels of consciousness. The majority of human beings on this earth are at a much lower level than the consciousness you are at when you start this course [This book], at least if you have followed the instructions by the other six Chohans. You will look at many people on earth and you can see that what they actually have in their three higher bodies is not necessarily what Plato would call an ideal form. They have a very limited vision, they have some very distorted images and ideas. Nevertheless, you will see that most people actually have higher forms in their three higher bodies than what is manifest in the physical, material realm, at least in their personal lives.

The question becomes: “What is it that prevents people from manifesting the forms they have in their higher bodies at the physical level?” This is a question that could be said to be as relevant for a person with the lowest level of consciousness as for an ascended master student at your level of consciousness. Now of course, if you go to the very lowest level of consciousness, you will see that there are actually some people there who are able to manifest something in the physical that is very close to the forms they have in their three higher bodies. Unfortunately, what they have in their three higher bodies is very, very low, very distorted forms, very impure. You can actually see some people at a low level of consciousness who have a certain higher vision, for example, a king who wants to manifest a certain palace. He may be able to envision this palace and he may actually be able to bring into physical manifestation something that is very close to what he is envisioning. Unfortunately, this is, of course, an entirely self-centered vision. In order to actually build that palace, it requires the slave labor of tens of thousands of people.

You see here that there are some people who are able to formulate a vision in their three higher bodies and bring it into physical manifestation. It may not be a destructive vision. You cannot say that some of these elaborate palaces, that you find in most nations in the world, are necessarily ugly or distorted. Some of them can be quite beautiful from a certain earthly perspective. Nevertheless, when you see how they were actually brought about, you see that the people who originally envisioned these palaces did have a very low, very self-centered, very self-focused level of consciousness. In order to manifest their vision, it required the slave labor of tens of thousands of people.

You are seeing here that at a lower level of consciousness, you have some people that are actually capable of bringing forth a vision into physical manifestation, but, number one, the vision is self-centered and, number two, the way they bring it about is also self-centered.

How a golden age can be manifest

The question now becomes for you as an ascended master student: “Is this what you want to accomplish?” Are you somehow thinking that by following this course, I will give you some secret formula, some secret symbol, that will allow you to manifest anything you desire? You see my beloved, at the first level of initiation in my retreat you are, of course, facing the combination of the First Ray of Will and Power with the Seventh Ray of Freedom. When you look at the history of humankind, you can see that there are actually people who have had a considerable momentum of will and power but they have been completely unbalanced when it comes to freedom. In other words, in order for the one king to manifest his will, he had to use his power to take away the freedom of tens of thousands of people in order to build that palace, that stone structure.

This, of course, is not what I am going to teach you in this course. I am in no way going to teach you how to use your willpower to override the free will of other people, whether it be one person or tens of thousands of people. Do you understand, my beloved, that we of the ascended masters, as we have now said many times, have absolute respect for free will? You may say from a certain perspective that it is my goal to manifest a Golden Age on earth. In that Golden Age no one will be lacking the basic necessities of life and no one will be suffering. Yes, that is my goal, my beloved, but how can I accomplish this goal? I do not envision that a Golden Age will be manifest by a limited number of powerful kings and emperors or other kinds of leaders who are having some vision but who are manifesting that vision by forcing, by manipulating, by overtaking the free will of their underlings. This is not how I envision the manifestation of my Golden Age.

Now, I know that you will say: “Well, this is obvious to me.” Is it equally obvious to you that I do not intend to manifest the Golden Age by having a limited number of spiritual people, who may have a benign intent, override the will of the majority of the population? We have talked about the top 10 percent, the 80 percent of the population in the middle and the 10 percent that are the bottom. Naturally, the fallen beings in embodiment and those whose minds are taken over by the fallen consciousness, form the lowest 10 percent. They are very often using force to bend the will of the 80 percent of the population to their schemes. There are ascended master students who have thought that being part of the top 10 percent means that you are supposed to bend the will of the 80 percent, based on your higher vision and your higher intent.

We have attempted to make something very clear to you, especially by the teachings we have given on the primal self, the avatars coming to earth and how you can fulfill your Divine plan, fulfill your highest spiritual potential. We have attempted with these teachings to make it very clear that we do not want you to override or force the will of the majority. This is not how I intend to manifest my Golden Age. This means that at the end of this course, I will have taken you, if you follow my instructions and are willing to come up through these seven initiations, to the 96th level of consciousness.

Freedom beyond symbols

Ascended Master Saint Germain through Kim Michaels, January 2, 2019.

Saint Germain I AM, and I come with a momentum of the Seventh Ray of freedom that is little known and little understood, even to ascended master students, and that is the momentum of victory. Truly, when you have gone through the initiations of the six rays, you have built a momentum. You know you can pass your tests, you know that whatever we, the Chohans, throw at you, you are able to deal with it, to step back, to look at yourself, to overcome anything in your psychology that stands in your way and then to surrender, to let go. In letting go, you begin to feel a new energy rising within you, and that is the momentum of victory on the Seventh Ray of Freedom.

Truly, when you realize that you are more than anything in this world – when you realize that you are more than any sense of self you have built through all of your embodiments – how can you fail to realize, that you can overcome, transcend and be free from any condition on earth, and any condition in your own psychology? How can you, then, fail to feel this bubbling joy of victory coming up from the depth of your being?

Meeting Saint Germain face to face

That is, then, when you and I can meet, and I can appear to you, stand before you, not as this God-like figure high above you, but I can stand before you and look at you as an equal. You can accept me as an equal, and we can therefore share in a moment of oneness, total oneness, of knowing that we have united in freedom!

For we are both god-free beings. I am a unique individual; you are a unique individual. I am not requiring you to be something you are not, and you are not afraid that I will require you to be something you are not. That is, indeed, when we can transcend into a new awareness where we both go beyond the student-teacher relationship. We, indeed, unite in that Flame of Freedom whereby you, as the one in embodiment, become an open door for giving that Flame of Freedom to all that you meet, the Flame of Freedom that I AM and that I am willing to stream through you when we attain that oneness. This, then, is the vision of your potential when you attain some mastery on the seven rays.

A special opportunity to attain freedom

Surely, those of you who have gone through these initiations of the first six rays, you have made mighty strides towards this ultimate victory of freedom. I am sure you realize that from the moment you were born, and, of course, going back many lifetimes on this planet, the culture and the fallen beings, and even well-meaning human beings (such as your parents and teachers and siblings) have done almost everything possible to hammer down your creative drive and your creative freedom. They have made you so afraid to express yourself that most people dare not even be creative. They have even put upon you that your creativity should live up to a standard predefined by some institution or authority on earth.

How can freedom be predefined? Creativity is the unknown – is that which has never before been seen – so how can creativity follow a predefined standard? It simply cannot be done, my beloved. Thus, you will never be truly free until you dare to go beyond all of the man-made standards, even those that have been created based on a valid spiritual teaching. Even students of the ascended masters have created a standard for themselves and each other, and in many cases they built even an organizational culture that limited the creativity of the members. This, of course, will not get you to the point of knowing the freedom of victory on the Seventh Ray.

How can you know victory when you think you have to blindly follow an outer standard—that is not the Christ-standard but a standard based on the consciousness of anti-christ? This, of course, will never lead you to freedom, and it will never lead you to victory.

Visiting the Cave of Symbols

As you use the invocations in this book, you will be taken, if you are willing, to my spiritual retreat, called the Cave of Symbols—no matter where it is located. It has been said in the past that it was located over a mountain called Table Mountain in the state of Wyoming in the United States, but can there really be a physical location that can confine the Retreat of Freedom?

Nay, for the Retreat of Freedom is more than anything else a state of consciousness that is not localized. It is non-local, and therefore if you think you can go to a certain physical location and sit there and meditate on me and I will appear to you, you are, of course, mistaken. You can meditate on me in consciousness, but you must be willing to shift your consciousness. You see my beloved, I will not come to you; I will not come down to a certain level of human consciousness. When you come to the initiations of the Seventh Ray, you must come up, for that is what you have been prepared to do by the first six rays.

Ascended Master Gautama Buddha, January 01, 2019, through Kim Michaels

I AM the Ascended Master Gautama Buddha, and I am Free. I am free because I have walked the path that you are all walking, of overcoming what I called “the attachments,” but which we might as well call the internal spirits, the separate selves.

The problem of idolatry

Naturally, when you look at the religion of Buddhism, the structure that has sprung up based on my teachings, you can see the same pattern to a large degree as you see in Christianity. Most Buddhists fail to see me as an example and instead have built this sandcastle of idolatry, of how special I was, starting with the conditions around my birth and going all the way up to my teachings and my entering nirvana.

What is the purpose of idolatry? The purpose of idolatry is always to project that one person is special compared to the majority. What then, is the purpose of doing this? It is to give the majority an excuse for not coming up higher in consciousness. There is absolutely no other, no genuine, purpose for idolatry, and this goes as well for the major world religions as it goes for ascended master teachings. We have seen in previous dispensations, how in every organization there was built a certain idolatry of the messenger or the messengers. They were somehow special. They had been trained for so long. They were born in certain circumstances. They had some ability that made them special compared to the students that were following them or their teachings.

My beloved, we have said in this last year that there were certain things we had to do to help certain people overcome the initiations of Pisces that they had not passed. We have said that this was one of the major initiations of Pisces: to overcome idolatry. Well, this no longer holds true. We have done what we could do for those who have not passed these initiations, and what we are doing now is for those who are willing to move into the initiations of Aquarius.

Of course, Aquarius has been said to be the Age of Community, the Age of the Holy Spirit, so does it not stand to reason that you cannot, then, have idolatry of one person in the Age of Community? You cannot have this centralized structure where one person is at the top of the pyramid and all decisions made in an organization have to go through that person, be approved by that person. Then, you create a bottleneck and then you bog down the workings of an organization. This we have, of course, seen in previous ascended master organizations and we do not desire to see it repeated in the coming age. This is one reason that we have not, from our perspective, created an organization around this messenger. This is one reason that he has not done so because he realizes this and the problem with idolatry.

It is time for those of you who are studying our teachings to begin to wrestle with this, and it is not so that I am hereby saying that you have a tendency to be idolatrous, although some of you, of course, have but many of you do not. You need to recognize here that you are not here just for yourselves. You are here to help raise the collective consciousness and that means that you need to wrestle with this spirit of idolatry that is now quite strong in the collective consciousness. You need to, first of all, overcome it in yourself so that you are willing to look at yourself, see if you have idolatry of this messenger and then work on overcoming it, letting it go.

We have in no way put him up as being special compared to you, other than, of course, he has the mantle of messenger and the ability to do this, but you have other abilities, as we have said many times, that are equally as important. It is meaningless to talk about one person or one person’s task being more important than another. You are all equally important. You are all part of Saint Germain’s mandala for the Aquarian Age—if you choose to be part of that mandala by overcoming your separate selves, including the one on idolatry. You need to be honest with yourselves because it is one of the initiations of this coming year, the Year of Freedom, to overcome this idolatry, which has surely imprisoned many, many people throughout the ages.

You need to look at yourselves, see if you have this idolatry and then use the many, many teachings we have given you on the primal self, on the separate selves, on overcoming these internal spirits, on the path of Christhood. We have given so many teachings on the path of Christhood, my beloved, that if you take them, you will come to realize, as we have said many, many times, that the Christ is in You, that the Holy Spirit can work through you, that you can find your way to be an open door for your I AM Presence, for the Holy Spirit and bring forth something.

This is how, if there is to be a community of ascended master students in the Aquarian Age, this is how it can come forth—not from a centralized vantage point. It comes forth when people individually overcome the idolatry, overcome the primal self, overcome this consciousness of separation and then they come together – spontaneously we might say – but certainly by an inner impulse, not by a decision by the outer mind or not by having a set matrix that forces them into following that matrix.

Where idolatry came from

Then, why is it important to consider idolatry in 2019, which is the Year of Freedom, the year where the planet will be going through the initiations of freedom? Well, it is important because this coming year will be a year where humankind will have to deal with the issue of elitism. We have hinted at it before, but truly the primary initiation of 2019 for the planet will be to recognize that the greatest hindrance to the freedom of the people is the elite, the power elite. Beyond the power elite, is the consciousness of elitism, and, of course, idolatry is very much part of this consciousness.

Now, you will see, of course, that the power elite on earth consists of many fallen beings in embodiment. We have told you that there are fallen beings in the emotional realm, the mental realm and the identity realm and they form a, sort of, coherent force (more or less coherent) with the ones in embodiment. You have this group of fallen beings and they, of course, are the ones who have brought with them to earth this consciousness of elitism. Not that there was not some consciousness of elitism before but the fallen beings, when they started embodying here, have certainly reinforced it and given it their entirely own slant, as you might say. They have created their version of elitism, centered around themselves and their beliefs.

What you see is that, they are the ones who have initiated this (what we might call) era of elitism on earth. However the people are not without responsibility here. We might say that the alpha aspect of elitism is that there is an elite who are absolutely convinced that they have a right to form an elite. They have a right to control the people, they have a right to set themselves up with special privileges not enjoyed by the people, and they have a right to demand and expect that the people actually support those privileges by doing the work, whatever society demands. This is the alpha aspect but the omega aspect is, of course, that the people have accepted this. They have accepted that they cannot govern themselves, that they need someone who has special abilities in order to govern them.

Look back throughout the ages and see how, in various cultures, various civilizations, there has been this clear idolatry where the leaders were seen to have some special characteristics. They were appointed by the gods—there was even in medieval Europe, the divine right of Kings. There was the whole belief that a certain family is the leader and the eldest son born into that family will be the next leader because there is a lineage, a “special” lineage. Where in the Old Testament philosophy would that special lineage ever have come about if all people descended from Adam and Eve?

Look at how many other cultures have had this belief that their leaders came from a special lineage but there is no real logical explanation for where this would come from. In some cases it comes from God because they were descended from the gods, but does that really make any sense when you consider, then, where did all the other people come from.

Now, there are, of course, some civilizations, for example the Ancient Greeks and others, where they had a certain philosophy about certain gods that were ruling mankind and often doing so in an unkind way. What you need to recognize here is that in all of these cases (where you had these supposed gods who have some very clear human traits, such as vindictiveness or jealousy or whatever it may be), you are not talking about gods and you are not talking about ascended masters. You are talking about fallen beings who have managed to set themselves up as gods in the minds of the people.

You can see it in the Roman Empire how people actually, at a certain point, came to believe that the Emperor was a god on earth. How anyone could believe that about a person like Nero is beyond me, but nevertheless you see this and how the Emperors themselves bought into this and believed (because their minds were taken over by fallen beings in the identity realm) that they were a kind of god on earth. Until, of course, karma caught up with them and their bodies deteriorated or there was some rebellion against them or whatever you have. But at some point or other, it was proven that when death knocked on the door, these gods were only humans.

Idolatry, dictatorships and elitism

You see that there has been a very long history of idolatry on earth and it is absolutely necessary in the Year of Freedom that at least some people begin to free themselves from this. We, of course, look at you who are our students to begin this process. We also look at you, of course, to be the forerunners for this in the collective consciousness, to really call forth the judgment of this beast of idolatry, this beast of elitism.

That is, of course, why we have the conference in Korea coming up where we call for the ending of the era of dictatorships. Because what is a dictator but a person who has created an extreme idolatry around himself, as you see, not only in North Korea but in virtually every dictatorship ever seen in history. There has been some cult of idolatry created around the dictator.

We also have, of course, our conference in the United States, which we will dedicate to ending the era of elitism on earth. So these two can form an alpha and omega polarity and, of course, be reinforced by our other conferences where we will have similar themes of overcoming this elitism.

The thoughtform for 2019

My beloved, this is the primary initiation for 2019 that I wish to bring to your attention. With this, I would like to give you the thoughtform for 2019, which, of course, as all of my thoughtforms, can be used beyond the year for which they are given. As this thoughtform for 2019, I would like you again to step back and imagine, envision that you are looking at the earth from space, from a distance. Not so far that you cannot see the individual nations and borders, but imagine that you are looking at a globe where the borders between nations are drawn. You see that even at the physical level there are borders.

Now, you know very well that you can go to certain areas, such as the European Union, and you can see that those borders do not necessarily have a physical demarcation. They are not clearly marked. If you go to the borderline, there are many places you can walk right across the border without there being any fence or barrier. You may even be able to drive across these borders many times without even having to stop and show your identification papers and so on. You also know that there are other areas of the world where there are much more physical borders.

What I wish to do here is to have you step back and look beyond the physical. If you can see what is happening in the collective consciousness of the people, you will see that there are also borders erected in the collective consciousness. Many types of borders are created in the collective consciousness of humankind. There are, of course, some of these collective borders that follow national borders because the people on one side of the physical borderline have a certain attitude towards those on the other and vice versa.

You also see other borders that are erected purely in the consciousness based on the attitudes, the mindsets. For example, you see clear, very definite borders between people who belong to different religions and these do not follow national borders. You will see, for example, if you go to some smaller villages in the United States that you can have a Central Square there. On each corner of the square there is a local church, a church with its own congregation. They are all Christians but there are different varieties of Christians. If you could look at the consciousness of even such a small village, you can see borderlines between those who belong to the different churches. Even though these people live in the same village and are in many cases related to each other and their families have known each other for a very long time, there are still borderlines in the collective consciousness.

When you take that up to humankind, you see how there are so many borderlines created based on religion. There are, of course, other borderlines based on religious affiliation and there are some very, very clear borderlines that are built between those who consider themselves to be part of the elite and who see themselves as separated from the people, “the people” as they often call them. They even think that it is “their people” but they have nothing but contempt for those people. You can see that there are all these borderlines created around the planet based on very, very artificial criteria.

Naturally, you can look at national borders between countries and see that even those are artificial criteria that often are due to a political situation that may happened hundreds of years ago, or some war that happened hundreds of years ago and established a border there, but there is really no logical, rational reason for it. You will see that all of these lines in the collective consciousness are all artificial based on some, in most cases, dualistic criteria. They clearly spring from the consciousness of separation where people love to set themselves apart from other people.

The thoughtform I wish to give you is that when you look at the surface of the earth, at the level of the collective consciousness, you see all of these borders created between people and groups of people. Yet, I now wish you to envision that in the center of the earth is a Buddha figure but it is not the golden Buddha. It is a Buddha that is radiating an intense ruby-red light, an intense ruby fire. It is, of course, what we have called the Buddha of the Ruby Ray, and now I wish you to envision that this Buddha of the Ruby Ray is radiating this light of the ruby color to consume these borders in the collective consciousness. Now, if you are personally aware of a particular borderline (it can be at the level of your family, it can be in your nation, your religion, a particular group that you have been affiliated with) then I ask you to envision that you are sitting in a meditative posture, literally inside this Buddha of the Ruby Ray. You are directing the attention of the Buddha of the Ruby Ray to this particular division, this border, this wall in the collective consciousness. You are envisioning that a very concentrated laser beam of this ruby-ray fire consumes that border, thereby setting the people free from this division that is currently imprisoning them. If you will pay a little attention to this over this year, you can give a very significant service to helping as many people as possible pass the initiations of 2019 and attain a greater level of freedom.

The greatest force of anti-freedom

What is the greatest force of anti-freedom on earth? It is precisely this consciousness of elitism, with the alpha of the elite thinking they have a right to rule and the omega being the idolatry of the people who think they need the elite in order to have a functioning society. My beloved, do you need – does any nation or group of people need – an elite in order to have a functioning society? The vast majority of people on earth, if you asked them this question, would say yes. Even people in democratic nations will say: “Well, surely we need some elite who has the experience, the know-how, of how to run the country.”

Is not the entire idea of a democracy that you do not have an elite who was born to that position and who can never be questioned and gainsaid? You have, of course, people who are in government and who have a certain experience but they can be exchanged for other people who can then take over and still make the government function. So why do you need an elite? Why do you still, in many democracies (in fact, in all democracies) allow the existence of an elite that is influencing the country behind the scenes even though they were never elected by the people?

This is one of the challenges for the democratic nations because many people in democratic nations will say: “Well, we do not have a dictatorship. We have a free democratic government, therefore we are not run by an elite, by a hidden power elite.” But you are, my beloved. In all democratic nations there is a power elite and they do pull the strings of the puppets in parliament. This is not always done in a malicious way. It is not done necessarily in an illegal or unconstitutional or deceptive way. It is done by simply having connections and being able to influence people’s thinking through those connections, but it is still a form of elitism.

There are so many nations on this earth where they think they are free but they are still controlled by a small elite. Last year I talked about the United States and the President of the United States. Here, you have a people who are facing a choice between two candidates for President, one they have come to see as being part of the established political elite and they want something different. So they elect the other candidate, who presents himself as a more populist candidate who is not part of the political elite—and that is true. But was he not a billionaire businessman before he was elected? And is there not an elite in the United States of billionaire businessmen, who do not even respect the political elite, the political apparatus or the political process but think they are entitled to run things the way they want to, as they do in their companies, where the CEO is a kind of god who has almost godlike powers? So how do the American people think that this person can free them from elitism?

That is a question to ask and to project into the collective consciousness so that more and more people will begin to ask this in the coming year: “Can a person who was part of the business elite set us free from the elitism that we are beginning to realize is the major problem in our country?” Of course, you can make the calls also that people will come to realize in greater and greater measure that their major problem, as was said at the United States conference, is elitism. It is the fact that there is a small elite running the country and this is not democracy as it was intended to be in the United States or anywhere else.

Looking at 2018

My beloved, truly 2018 was from our perspective, another acceleration. I said last year that there was a danger of many conflicts springing up, but most of them have not flared up in the physical, certainly not to the extent that they could have. This is in very large part due to the work of yourselves as our direct students in this dispensation, but also the work of other ascended master students and other spiritual, New Age people around the world who have done what they could do – based on their knowledge, their teachings – to promote peace.

Many, many people, many spiritual people, even many who are not overtly spiritual have tuned in to the initiations of peace in this past year and they have done whatever they could, based on where they were, both in consciousness and in the physical, to promote peace.

Overcoming idolatry

Naturally my beloved, when I start out talking about idolatry, I cannot allow you, who are ascended master students, to have idolatry of yourselves. That is why you cannot allow yourselves to fall into the trap that students of previous dispensations fell into of thinking that they were the most advanced students on the planet, they were saving the world for Saint Germain by doing all of these decrees, and they would one day be seen as the ones who had saved the world and brought the world into the Aquarian Age.

This was, again, something that was needed for people to have that initiation and overcome the initiations of Pisces and pass those initiations but it is not necessary for you. That is why we wish you to have a more realistic assessment. We recognize, of course, that what you are doing is important and does have a major positive impact on the planet, both when you give your invocations and decrees but also when you raise your consciousness. On the other hand, you do not fall into this idolatry where you are motivated to do what you do because you are seeking some special status or some reward, whether here on earth or in the hereafter.

We are asking you to step up and come to the point where you are giving your service lovingly, not because you have an obsessive-compulsive drive to be seen as special. How can you step up to that point? Well, you need to overcome the primal self because that is what is driving you to somehow compensate for the fact that you were put down when you came to earth as avatars. You have been seeking ever since then to get some kind of special status, often for the benign purpose, seemingly, of wanting people to listen to you. Nevertheless, even this is not an Aquarian Age concept because in the Aquarian Age people should not listen to you because you have a special art or status, as had been the case in the Piscean Age and in previous ages. They should listen to you because of what you say and it resonates with them.

The fear of seeing your name in print

This, of course, is, again, where the Internet is a major opportunity for you – all of you – to begin speaking out, spreading your insights, sharing them with other people, as Jesus admonished you to do last year. You see, my beloved, there is an important topic here that I wish to touch upon, even though I have already given you a fairly long discourse. You realize, of course, that for the Buddha, time is not.

When we talk about elitism and idolatry, when we talk about freedom, has the Internet helped combat elitism, combat idolatry and increase freedom? Has the Internet been a plus or a minus? Well, of course, you could say that from a certain perspective, clearly it has been a plus. It has allowed so much knowledge to be available to so many different people in a way that it has never been available before.

Nevertheless, you need to recognize here that the Internet has also played a part in actually reinforcing these walls, these barriers that are in the collective consciousness between groups of people. To some degree the Internet has served to break down these walls but in another way the Internet has helped to reinforce them. This has something to do with the fact that people have used the Internet to make these statements that are clearly not thought through, that are very biased and that are often what you call hate mail or hateful statements. You have the Internet trolls, and I can tell you that there is an entire group of people who are either paid by fallen beings or whose minds are taken over by fallen beings to act as these Internet trolls, really only for the purpose of creating chaos, conflict and for discrediting the Internet and anything on it.

Besides this, you need to recognize here that there is a certain mechanism and it is a mechanism created by the fallen beings a long time ago. You see  my beloved, going back in the recent history of the planet, one of the major setbacks of the fallen beings was when a man named Gutenberg invented the printing press that made it possible to disseminate the printed word in an inexpensive way so that more and more people could actually afford to buy books. You will see that before then, many people could not even read because there were no books for them to read. The distribution of knowledge was controlled, often by these monks who sat there and hand copied manuscripts. Therefore, it was all under centralized control, even the control of the Catholic Church.

When Gutenberg invented the printing press, all of a sudden knowledge became much more widely available. You see, of course, throughout the centuries after Gutenberg’s invention how books became more and more widespread and the fallen beings could not stop this even though they clearly wanted to. What they instead attempted to do was to gain control over the publishing industry and this control did, of course, limit what could be brought out in books. Even this control was eventually broken by new printing methods but most of all by the Internet. You see here, that what the fallen beings did in order to counteract the spreading of knowledge through the printed word, was that they managed to, over time, create a certain consciousness in the collective, a fear of seeing your name in print.

If you go back to the time when the primary news media was newspapers, there were many, many people who feared to have their name in print. There were many people who, if their name did make it into print in the newspapers, they would feel a major trauma of suddenly being exposed in a way that millions of people could read about them. This was not even that people had done something illegal or wrong, but many people actually took on this fear of being exposed in the media. You will see how, there has always, of course, been a certain elite who wants to be exposed but the majority of the people would rather live an anonymous life.

What has happened via the Internet is that now so many people have a Facebook account or some other account, at least an email account, and suddenly their names are out there. What many people are having to deal with, including yourselves as ascended master students, is this fear of seeing your word in print (so to speak, even though it is not printed, it is nevertheless still on the Internet where everybody can read it). Of course, it can be spread much more quickly on the Internet than it ever could through the printed word.

There is a certain fear in the collective consciousness and this, of course, is a wall created in the collective consciousness that is created by the fallen beings so that the people do not dare to step through that barrier and speak out against the elite. What you see on the Internet is that you now have people who have a Facebook account where anybody, or at least anybody who is their friend, can post a comment. So, here is a person who posts some kind of thing on their Facebook account and then somebody comes in with a very negative, hateful comment to this. Many, many people have been shocked, disturbed even traumatized by having this. You have in many democratic countries, there are even Members of Parliament or other public figures who are reluctant to have a Facebook account because they are tired of every morning looking at their account and having to read these hateful comments.

You see here that there is an entire consciousness—not only is there a concentrated group of people who are directly seeking to destroy the Internet by trolling but there is a larger group of people who have taken on this consciousness of posting these very sarcastic, ironic, negative, down-putting comments on other people. Even for things that are supposedly benign, they still receive these hateful comments.

This is another topic where you can use my thoughtform. If you have been exposed to this, as most of you have, envision you are sitting there in the center of the ruby ray figure, directing that ruby ray into consuming these barriers. Therefore, as we said in the United States, people can find a more constructive way to have a public dialogue, find a more constructive way to interact on the Internet.

A civilized Internet

Envision that in 2019 people will begin to speak out that there is a need to raise the Internet to a level where civilized people can have a civilized conversation. Not in the sense that it is controlled but in the sense that you create some way for people to have a constructive dialogue that is not brought down by these people who only want to bring things down. You may say, my beloved, am I not encouraging you to create another barrier where you shut out the people who are negative? No, I am actually not, because barriers are created from the consciousness of separation, but I am encouraging you to rise above that consciousness.

Therefore, you can actually find a way to have freedom that is not based on creating a barrier that shuts out those that you think are working against your freedom. You actually raise yourself to the point where you transcend the consciousness of those who are opposing your freedom and therefore they become irrelevant to you. This is what is needed: that more and more people realize that we simply need to have a public dialogue that is not run by this very negative, ironic, sarcastic, downputting consciousness.

Looking at 2019

My beloved, will there be other challenges in 2019? Well, naturally. There is always the spectre of conflict, which could break out here, there and everywhere. Nevertheless, we still look at you who are the spiritual students to envision that whatever may or may not happen, there will be a raising of the collective consciousness so people become more and more aware of freedom as a topic that begins in the mind.

It is not so that you will ever be truly free by creating certain conditions in the physical. You will not be truly free until you look at the mind. This is what is lacking in most of the developed countries where they have people who have grown up in a free society – at least more free than you have ever seen on earth – yet they are not free because they are so trapped in their own psychological mechanisms. Hold the vision, make the calls that people will be aware in 2019 that the major challenge for the so-called free world is to focus on the concept of mental freedom that Saint Germain has talked about before.

My beloved, this concludes my address. It is always a joy for me to address you. It is a joy for me to address you at conferences, and I certainly look forward to the conferences that you will have this year and the many teachings that will be brought forth. With this, I express, again, the gratitude of all ascended masters for your dedication, your service, your attention and your willingness to change yourselves, first of all.

You are not a slave of time

Listen to a recording of this dictation (subscribers only) 

Ascended Master Gautama Buddha through Kim Michaels, December 2, 2018. This dictation was given at a conference in Tallinn, Estonia.

I AM the Ascended Master Gautama Buddha. What I desire to expound upon in this discourse is a certain variety of topics that may seem unrelated but are not. Let me begin by talking about the fact that it is absolutely necessary on the path to Christhood, on the path to Buddhahood, that you understand that the self that you had when you first found the teachings and awakened to the existence of a spiritual path, that self cannot bring you to Christhood or Buddhahood.

Now, you have been giving this latest invocation on the primal self where you have learned that the primal self must die and you are reborn into a new self [From the book Healing Your Spiritual Traumas]. This is, of course, a perfectly valid process, but do not put yourself into a state where you think that even if you feel that your primal self has died, that the new self you are born into is the self that you will carry with you until you ascend. Certainly, do not fall into the illusion of thinking that it is this self that will ascend.

Ascending with all karma balanced

We have in this dispensation given you some teachings on the process of the ascension on what we might call “the psychology of the ascension” that are far beyond what we have given in any previous dispensation. This is not to say that the teachings given previously were invalid or could not take people to the ascension. There were some people who in past lives had come so close to the ascension point that the teachings given previously could take them those last steps until they were ready to ascend, but there were not so many people in that category. You will know that in the last dispensation it was said that you could ascend with just 51% of your karma balanced. I will say that there are very, very few people who could take the teachings we have given previously and come to the point where they had balanced 100% of their karma (which also means resolving your psychology) and therefore ascend from earth, being, so to speak, “clear,” clear of all encumbrances and therefore becoming immediately an ascended master.

However, our goal with the teachings we have given now, that go so much deeper into the psychology, is to enable a larger group of people to balance their karma, resolve their psychology and then have some time in this state before they take leave of the physical body and ascend from the planet. You need to recognize that progressive revelation is progressive. This has, of course, many ramifications but one of them is that certain things that were said previously were correct enough but they were not the full story, they were a limited view, a simplified view of the topic.

So many people from previous dispensations have not asked the question: “If an ascended master is a being who has balanced all karma and if a person ascends (so to speak) with 51% of the karma balanced, does that mean that this person now becomes an ascended master after ‘ascending?’” It was not asked: “If a person has balanced more than 51 percent of their karma and therefore does not have to come back into physical embodiment, has that person truly ascended and become an ascended master?” The obvious answer to the question is “No!” How do you become an ascended master if you still have unbalanced karma and unresolved psychology from earth? It simply is not logical, my beloved, that this can happen. Therefore, it needs to be recognized, by some of you at least, that this was a simplified teaching, not the full understanding of the topic. Naturally my beloved, you need to have resolved everything you need to resolve on earth before you can actually ascend and become an ascended master. There are, of course, some people who have only the karma left they (as Mother Mary has explained) have with themselves, which basically means that what they have left is unresolved psychology and they can resolve this without being in physical embodiment.

Why was the dispensation given that you can ascend with 51% of your karma? It was precisely because there were so few people ascending. It was so difficult, given the density of the collective consciousness, to ascend with 100% of your karma balanced, your psychology resolved. In order to speed up the process of raising the collective consciousness, the dispensation was given that if you have balanced (resolved) 51%, you do not have to come back into physical embodiment. You can go into a special program in the etheric realm where you are given help to resolve whatever you have that is unresolved. This can more quickly bring you to the point where you can fully ascend than if you had to go through the process of being born in a physical body, growing to adulthood before you were able to embrace the spiritual path and follow it more consciously. This sped up the process whereby some could resolve whatever was unresolved and then ascend more quickly than taking embodiment again.

We have moved into a new cycle and we now aim to help a much larger group of people go through the process of resolving all of their psychology while you are still in embodiment. This is, first of all, directed at avatars, but it is a teaching that is perfectly valid and useful for the original inhabitants of the earth who have reached a certain level of spiritual growth. It is useful for those who are not technically avatars but may have come from other planets that ascended and they were not able to ascend with their planet or with the rest of the lifestreams on their planet.

The essence of the path is letting selves die

This, of course, is the challenge we have put before you. You need to recognize here that when you go through a certain phase, for example, you uncover your primal self as an avatar and you let that self die, then you are born into a new sense of self. There were certainly selves that you created after you created the primal self. You still have a certain view of yourself, a certain view of earth, and that means that when you create a new self after you overcome the primal self, then that new self is not necessarily the highest possible. Or rather, it is not the highest possible. As you go up to higher and higher levels of consciousness, there will come points where you need to step back, look at your current sense of self and again let it die so that you can be reborn again. You can be reborn in Christ, you can be reborn in Buddha. Perhaps you are beginning to recognize that the essence of the spiritual path is to come to see that you have a certain sense of self that is limited and you let it die. Now, we have so far talked about specific selves, we have talked about these reactionary selves that are created in reaction to a specific situation on earth. When you find the spiritual path, for example, you find an ascended master teaching (you start to study it, you start to practice it, you perhaps come into an organization that has a certain organizational culture), you are actually creating a new self and you do this all the time, not only in this lifetime but in past lifetimes. You create certain selves that are not, strictly speaking, in a reaction to a particular traumatic situation. There are actually selves created in reaction to the understanding, the awareness that you currently have. You are rising to a higher awareness, you create a new self based on that higher awareness. When you come to the higher levels of the path, you need to become conscious of this process. For a long time the process is unconscious. You are actually not realizing that you are creating a new self.

There comes a point where you need to become conscious of this and you need to see: “What have I gone through since I became consciously aware of the spiritual path? What are my experiences, what are the insights I have gained?” You can just take sort of a look at your path up until this point and you can see: “What have I gone through, what beliefs have I come to accept based on the teachings I have followed, the organizations I have been involved with? What kind of a self have I created as a result of this?” As Kuan Yin said, some people come into the teachings, they have a desire for a sense of superiority and they may never let go of the self they have built that feels superior because they are ascended master students. Now, most of you do not have this issue but you have built other selves.

Again, there is no blame here. It is a natural part of growth that you build these new selves based on your awareness and your desire, what to express, what to experience, what to do here on earth. We have all done the same thing. I am simply making you aware that many of you are at the point where you are ready to become conscious of this. Look at yourself and consider what kind of self you have built so far and whether that self is actually based on a limited view, a limited understanding. Some of you will find, when you do this, that you realize you actually have a self that is built on a certain view of the path, a certain view of yourself that you had years ago. Now, you have in some part of your mind actually attained a higher understanding, higher insights, a higher view, a higher perspective. Therefore, you need to come to see that the self that you built during a certain stage of your path is no longer helping you grow. It is actually in a way limiting your growth, it is holding you back because you have an outdated view, especially of your abilities.

Selves that limit your abilities

Now, we have talked in several ways about how you need to go through a phase where you overcome this compulsory need to do something on earth. It is, of course, perfectly necessary to go through this stage but there also comes a point where, when you have gone through that phase, then there will come that point where you realize that what you are really here for is to be yourself, to express yourself. Expressing yourself means that you are allowing your I AM Presence to express itself through you because you realize that being yourself actually means being in some state of oneness with your I AM Presence. Then, you can benefit from realizing that you have, going all the way back to your birth trauma, built certain selves that had a certain view of what you can do on earth, what you are allowed to do on earth, what you are supposed to do on earth and these selves could have been refined or reinforced by finding a spiritual path.

We have said before that when you find a spiritual path, you see yourself as a spiritual student. We have said that there is a long phase of growth where the concept of a spiritual path is helpful and constructive. If you, for the rest of your time in embodiment, continue to see yourself as a spiritual student, then there comes a point where this is no longer constructive because the concept of a path implies: “I am at a certain level, there is a higher level that is possible, but I have not yet reached it.” You may say, for example: “I am at the 88th level of consciousness, there are 144 levels, I am not at the 144th level.” This in itself is not really problematic because, obviously, it will take some time before you reach the 144th level and some of you may not reach it until shortly before you are ready to exit the planet. Nevertheless, between the 88th level and the 144th level, there are certain stages that we have named, for example, Christhood. There could come a point where you have in your mind an image that you are a spiritual student who is moving towards Christhood but you are not there yet. If you forever continue to hold on to that sense of self, then how will you ever be the Christ in embodiment?

Now my beloved, there are many examples of ascended master students who have heard about the path to Christhood and who have decided with their outer minds, with their outer ambitions: “Yes, I am already the Living Christ.” Now, they go out and they think they have to do whatever they have to do: pronounce the judgement of the fallen beings or awaken other people or blue-ray them or whatever. This is not what I am talking about. I am talking about that there comes a point where you have used these tools that we have given you. You have sincerely striven to overcome the primal self and many other selves. Therefore, you have reached a certain level but you are still holding on to a sense of self that you created at a previous level. At that previous level it was valid to see that there was a goal of Christhood but you were not there. There comes a certain point where, now you have actually reached a certain level. Say for example, you are at the 110th level. There is a level of Christhood that corresponds to that. There is a level of Christhood that corresponds to each of the levels from the 97th and onwards, (although there comes a point where we might say that the levels of Christhood gradually blend into the levels of Buddhahood). If you have reached the 110th level but you are still holding on to an image you created at the 95th level, that image is holding you back.

The rest of this dictation, along with an invocation based on the dictation, is found in the book: Making Peace with Being on Earth.

Grasping the radical nature of mercy

Listen to a recording of this dictation (subscribers only) 

Ascended Master Kuan Yin through Kim Michaels, December 2, 2018. This dictation was given at a conference in Tallinn, Estonia.

I AM the Ascended Master Kuan Yin, and as you know, I am the master who holds the Flame of Mercy for the earth. What, my beloved, is mercy? Well, there is a worldly view of mercy and then there is an ascended view of mercy. I, of course, aim to give you an appreciation, an experience, of the ascended view. Let us first look at the worldly view. So many times you see a situation, for example, where some aggressor has conquered a village and is about to kill a person and the person says: “Have mercy upon me.” Then, the mercy is looked at as that you do not kill the person. That is supposedly being merciful. Now, how do I, as an ascended master, view mercy?

The greatest form of non-mercy

Well, what is the greatest non-mercy, the greatest lack of mercy on an unnatural planet like earth? This is something that most people have never even considered. You can understand this because we have given you all of the background, we have given you, but an average person would not have the vocabulary to even comprehend this. What have we told you in the teachings we have given you since the book My Lives and the book on the birth trauma? We have told you that you are a formless being. You have descended into a world of form. You have made decisions and those decisions have led to a physical consequence. In the ideal state, my beloved, listen carefully, in the ideal state as a co-creator, even on an unnatural planet, you should be able to co-create something but your co-creation does not define you.

You are creating something that has some endurance in time and space. You create something that lasts. It does not just appear for a second and then disappear. It lasts over time but still, even though you have created that, it should not define you. You should still be a formless being. What, of course, happens on earth? It is not said to blame anyone, just simply a statement that this is the way it works on an unnatural planet. What happens on earth is that when you create something that has a certain endurance, you begin to identify yourself based on what you have created. What also happens is that other people begin to identify you based on what you have created.

This, of course, all started with the fallen beings who very well knew that when an avatar descends to earth, you descend at the 48th level of consciousness. Therefore, you do not have full Christhood. Therefore, you will make some decisions and you will create certain things that are not the highest possible. They then created this standard that there is right and wrong, there is either perfect or no-good. Therefore, they could easily blame you that whatever you co-created was not good enough, was not perfect, was wrong according to some standard. Then, they used this very aggressively to put upon you this idea that there is something wrong with you. If your creation is wrong, that means you are wrong. Therefore, you gradually started reacting to these very aggressive attacks by creating these separate selves. These separate selves are reactionary selves, they are created to respond to a certain condition that has endurance in time and space. You have created something, you have been put down or criticized for it. You are reacting to this by creating a self and the self also has endurance. When you received the birth trauma, as we have said before, all of a sudden everything became personal, or at least life on earth became personal to you. The attacks of the fallen beings you saw as a personal attack against you.

What is non-mercy? What is the opposite of mercy? It is when anyone, whether yourself or someone else, holds a fixed image in their minds of you as a formless being. They are taking an image that has form, projecting it upon you, the formless being, and saying: “This is how you are.” You are fixing an image of the River of Life. You are taking a snapshot of the River of Life and saying: “This is how the river is. You can know everything about the river by looking at this still image.” That is what they do to you. That is what you do to yourself. This is non-mercy. Therefore, what is mercy? It is to become aware of a fixed image of a formless being, whether yourself or someone else, and just releasing it. As Master MORE described, when you see an image of something that happened in the past, you can let it go, you can whisk it away, you can give it up, surrender it. This is mercy.

Ascended master students who get stuck

With this, let us take a slightly different direction and talk about ascended master students. There are people who have come into an ascended master teaching and when they found the teaching, they were, of course, (as you should all realize as inevitable) at a certain level of consciousness. They had a certain psychology, they had a certain amount of separate selves and they were approaching the ascended master teaching through their present level of consciousness. Nobody has ever done anything else. Nothing wrong with it, no blame here, it is simply inevitable. You find the teachings at a certain point, you look at the teachings a certain way, through the consciousness you have at the time, through the separate selves you have at the time.

Now, what happens to some ascended master students (not all, not even the majority but what happens to some) is that they formulate a very strong opinion and belief about ascended masters, about our teachings and about themselves as students. They do this because they have a separate self that has a certain need. It might be a need to feel that they are good enough, that they are okay or it might be a need to feel superior. There is especially a group of students who have this need to feel that they are either superior to others or blameless, that they know and understand something that other people do not understand. When they find the teachings, they build this image of themselves as advanced students but it is a separate self that builds and holds this image.

Now, the question is: Can these students, after having been in the teachings for some time and applied the teachings, can they overcome this separate self? Some can and then they move on and they grow. Others, my beloved, cannot or will not and therefore (even though they are studying the teachings, practicing the teachings and they are making progress in other ways), there is still that original separate self that caused them to formulate the view of themselves and the teachings. That self has not been touched. Even if they have been in the teachings and been practicing them for 30-40 years, there are students whose original separate self has not even been touched. They have not started to see that this was a separate self. They are firmly convinced that the way they look at the masters, the spiritual path and themselves is the ultimate view. They do not need to change it.

What can we of the ascended masters do about such students? Well, in a sense, we do not do anything about them because they are unreachable to us. What we do is we say: “Now, it is time to bring forth a higher level of teaching, because there is a critical mass of students that are ready for it.” What, then, often happens is that these people who see themselves as advanced students, their original view of the ascended masters, their original view of the spiritual path and their original view of themselves is being challenged by the new teaching. Some of them are now able to see this, to see that their original view was just coming from a separate self and they can let it go. Others are not willing to do this because they are not willing to question the image that they are superior students and they have the path firmly in their grasp, they know what it is about, what it means to be a student. These people will in many cases reject the new teaching. We have in the past seen many times where we had sponsored one organization for a time. We withdrew our sponsorship and stopped progressive revelation in that movement. We started a new one, some of the students from the old movement moved on to the new, but those who were the most (in their own mind) sophisticated and advanced students, would not move on to the new because the new one was a little bit different and therefore challenged their view of what the path was about.

This, of course, can happen even within an organization as it has recently happened for some people with the My Lives book and the new teachings we are giving on the primal self and the separate selves. Why am I bringing this up? Well, because these students are actually an example of non-mercy. They have not locked in to the Flame of Mercy. If you truly grasp mercy, you recognize that the spiritual path, the Path to Christhood, is a process that goes through several stages. You realize (when you have mercy with yourself and others) that what applies to one stage is only given in order to take you to a certain level of the path. When you come to that level, your challenge is to step up to a new level and you cannot, as other masters have said, rise to the new level by continuing to do what you did at the old level.

Having mercy upon yourself

You are at a certain point of the path. What you have been doing to get to that point was perfectly valid, but what took you to that point cannot take you beyond that point. If you do not have mercy, you tend to hold on to a fixed view of the path, of the masters, of yourself. You will see many, many students throughout the ages, who have looked at a new dispensation and found something they could point their finger at: “Oh, the masters would never say that. The masters would never express themselves that way, the masters would never talk about these topics.” All of these things. This is actually an expression of non-mercy.

Now, am I saying this because I want people in embodiment to have mercy upon the ascended masters? Of course not! I do not need your mercy. You need your mercy because what are these students doing? They are holding themselves in a fixed image of themselves. Therefore, they are not having mercy upon themselves. Also, they are often not having mercy upon other students. They become very judgmental of those who (for example) move on. They try to, perhaps, persuade them or scare them into not moving on by all kinds of scare tactics that this is wrong, this is false, this is not the masters and so forth and so on.

There is this very rigid mindset that comes in, and it is the rigidity of the mindset that is lacking in mercy. You can look at fundamentalist Christians who have this very rigid mindset that the Bible is the word of God and that there is nothing else needed for salvation. It is a rather extreme expression of non-mercy. I know most people have never seen it that way but this is the reality. It is a complete lack of mercy with themselves and with the people they judge.

You, as ascended master students, can, of course, step up. You who are open to our teachings on the primal self, the birth trauma and all these separate selves, you can use this to say: “What is it that I need to go through here?” I have given you these other students just as an example. You do not need to dwell on it, you do not need to try to persuade them at all but you just need to look at yourself and say: “Do I have some element of non-mercy with myself or even with the way I look at other people? Am I tending to hold a fixed image of myself, of the path, of the masters?” Jesus talked about your modus operandi of how you relate to the masters. More importantly: “How do I look at myself?”

What I am bringing you to is this recognition that the spiritual path, the path to Christhood, has distinct stages, distinct phases. This means that you cannot allow yourself, as an ascended master student, to hold the image in your mind that: “I have a basic grasp of the path. It says I have to do this and then I just need to keep doing that for the rest of my life and I will make maximum progress.” This simply is not the case. There comes a point where what you have been doing so far will not take you into the next phase. Therefore, you need to be flexible enough that you are willing to let go of that image of the path and of how you are as a student and say: “What do I actually need in order to grow to the next phase”?

You see my beloved, there are students who will look at anything new we bring out and judge it based on what has been brought out before. There are students (for example) who will look at a new dispensation, compare it to what was said in the previous dispensation and say: “Oh, the new cannot be right because it contradicts or goes beyond what was said in the old.” Well, hello my beloved! What is the point of starting a new dispensation if it is not to say something that goes beyond what was said in the old? Be aware here that there is this tendency.

Speaking out from a state of peace

Listen to a recording of this dictation (subscribers only) 

Ascended Master Jesus through Kim Michaels, December 1, 2018. This dictation was given at a conference in Tallinn, Estonia.

I AM the Ascended Master Jesus, and I wish to make some remarks here about a topic that can be confusing. I fully understand that it is confusing to some of you. It is the topic of Christhood, how you exercise your Christhood in terms of speaking out on earth. If you are in a linear mindset, you could say that these latest teachings we have given you (over this past year or a little more), contradict earlier teachings we have given you. We have said that a part of your Christhood is to speak out, and now it seems like we are saying that you should not speak out and you should instead work on your internal spirits, your separate selves and overcome them.

Now my beloved, the key to resolving what may seem like an enigma is to realize that the spiritual path has certain stages. There are certain levels of initiation that you go through on the path to Christhood. We have given you the course in self-mastery, which is designed to take people from the 48th level of consciousness to the 96th level. At the 96th level is where you begin to exercise Christhood but, of course, there is a distance from the 96th to the 144th level. You can see that, obviously, what you attain or can attain at the 96th level is not the full measure of Christhood. As you go higher and higher towards the 144th level, you are able to manifest and express higher degrees, we might call it, of Christhood.

The experiential side of Christhood

This means that when we give a teaching that is applicable for people at the 96th level or close to it, it is, of course, not the same teaching we will give for people at higher levels. When I gave, for example, the course on Christhood [Master Keys to Personal Christhood] and many of the early teachings that were given in this dispensation about Christhood, it was given for the beginning level of consciousness. What we are giving you now is for the higher levels of Christhood where you need to acknowledge here that there are certain things you cannot be given theoretically on the spiritual path. There needs to be an interchange between receiving teachings and gaining understanding and then practicing, expressing, those teachings and getting experience. You do not become the Christ by sitting in a classroom and receiving teachings from a teacher even if that teacher has attained Christhood. There must be a certain experiential element where you go out and have certain experiences.

What I and other masters told people to do in the early stages of this dispensation was to go out and speak out with the understanding, with the awareness, they had at the time. Now, we knew full well, of course, that people would go out with a certain amount of separate selves and they would feel a compulsion to speak out. We knew that there were some people that were very reluctant to speak out because the separate selves that they had built in past lives told them that it was very dangerous, very unsafe, to speak out and that they should not speak out at all.

We knew that there were other people who had an ambition to speak out, either because they wanted to do something important, they wanted to get acknowledged by the ascended masters, they wanted to get acknowledged by other people or the world, or various other motivations that people have. We also knew that it was necessary to give people the teaching, let them do with it whatever they wanted, because whether they spoke out or not, they would still have certain experiences that would then help them progress to the point where they would be ready for a higher teaching.

This is what has happened. A sufficient number of people have risen to the level where they are ready for the higher teachings we are giving now. We might say that a critical mass of you have risen to this level, but I would prefer to say that it was an uncritical mass of you that have risen to this level because you have risen by overcoming this critical attitude where you feel you had to criticize, judge and evaluate everything. This is precisely what characterizes the higher levels of Christhood.

Christhood is not a linear process

At the lower levels of Christhood you are beginning to have some awareness that there are many things on earth that are not, as you see it at that level, right. They are not in accordance with the higher vision, they are not in accordance with how things should be and they should be changed. As we have now said about avatars who come to this planet feeling they have to change things on earth, in the beginning stages of Christhood you very much go out with the attitude that you have to change something. You have to make people see what they are not seeing and you have to make a difference and create a change.

This is exactly the attitude that many avatars had when they came to earth. You actually need to have this experience in this lifetime in order to tie back in to this momentum. There are other avatars who came to this earth and did not speak out, did not want to speak out and decided that they do not want to speak out on this planet. Some of these people have not gone out and spoken out but it has still given you the experience that you had the teaching and what are you doing with it.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with this. As we have said many, many times, you have a right to be at a certain level of consciousness and you have a right to express yourself based on that level of consciousness—nothing wrong with it, no blame from our part whatsoever. As Nada so carefully explained in her book, we accept you at whatever level of consciousness you are at and are only looking at how we can help you ascend to the next level up.

This, of course, does not mean that we want you to remain at the lower level of Christhood for the rest of your lifetime. We want you to have a certain experience at the lower levels that, then, combined with the teachings we give you, help you rise to higher and higher levels of Christhood. There comes a point where you have reached the level of Christhood where it is necessary to question what you have done before. I know that some people will go into a linear mindset because they want to think that if they had a true teaching given to them by an ascended master about Christhood, then that teaching is absolute and therefore all they need to do is follow that teaching for the rest of their lives.

I know there are people who want to think this way but they are simply not grasping what Christhood is about in the ongoing self-transcendence, and so I cannot cater to such people. We of the ascended masters can give certain teachings for people in this mindset. If the people do not heed the teaching, if they do not shift their attitude, then we must by the law, even the Law of Free Will, leave these people alone and not attempt to make them see what they are not willing to see.

Therefore, we then focus on those who are willing to see that there comes a point on your path of Christhood where you need to question the very things that brought you to that level of Christhood. This is not just a one-time thing. This is an ongoing thing because the higher you go towards the 144th level, the shorter are the intervals between where you need to question yourself. In fact, at the higher levels of consciousness you need to question everything at your present level in order to ascend to the next level.

The progressiveness of Christhood

What we are telling you now with these teachings on the avatar and overcoming the birth trauma, overcoming these separate selves, is that at the lower levels of Christhood it is acceptable for you (it is necessary, it is part of the path) to speak out with the level of awareness you have and with the separate selves that you have. Even if this causes you to go out and be somewhat unbalanced, perhaps too forceful, perhaps too insistent, perhaps too blue-flame, (as Master MORE calls it), it is still acceptable that you do this because you can do nothing else. It is by doing it that you get a certain feedback, you get a certain frame of reference that allows you to see that perhaps it is necessary to refine your approach.

That is what, then, opens you to say: “Okay, perhaps I have now reached a level of Christhood where the teachings that brought me here cannot bring me any further.” It is essentially, like we have said before, the example of how a child starts learning to ride a bicycle and has two wheels on the side of the bicycle (training wheels) that help the child hold the balance. There should come a point where the child has learned to hold the balance on the bicycle and can throw away the training wheels. If you see an adult riding on a bicycle with training wheels, you would think that this person has missed something.

It is the same on the spiritual path. That is why we have said to you that you need to consider your modus operandi [Healing Your Spiritual Traumas]. You need to consider how you approach looking at earth: Is it a friendly planet, a hostile planet? Is it a friendly body, a hostile body? Is God a friendly God or a hostile God? Are the ascended masters friendly masters or hostile masters? You need to consider this. You need to look at yourself. You could even say: “Do I have a friendly view of myself or a hostile view of myself?” Where does the hostility then come from? It can only come from a separate self that is influenced by the consciousness of the fallen beings and therefore, of course, it needs to be allowed to die.

What I want to give you here in terms of Christhood and in terms of speaking out is this: Overcoming your primal self, overcoming many or most of these separate selves does not mean that you do not speak out anymore. Attaining the peace with being on earth that is our goal for this conference does not mean that you are not going to speak out. It does mean that you are going to speak out in a different way, with an entirely different attitude. You are not driven by a separate self to speak out. You do not have a compulsive drive to speak out. You are not speaking out with the attitude that you have to produce a certain result. You are not speaking out because you have to convince or convert other people.

You are speaking out with the attitude that you are here to give them a frame of reference that they do not have right now, and then you leave them completely free to choose what they want to do with that. You have given them what they did not have before. You have given them a foundation for making better choices, higher choices, more aware choices but you leave it up to them how or what they will choose. This is not your job within the Law of Free Will. It is to give them the option, to give them the choice, so they have a more free choice, but then to still allow them to make whatever choice they want to make. That is why it is essential that you let go of this entire relative, comparative scale of the fallen beings about perfect or imperfect, about right and wrong and all of this entire mindset. It takes some time, we realize that, but it is important that you begin to work on this so you can come to that point where, when you do speak out, you are speaking from a state of inner peace.

Teaching yourself to erase memories

Listen to a recording of this dictation (subscribers only) 

Ascended Master MORE through Kim Michaels, December 1, 2018. This dictation was given at a conference in Tallinn, Estonia.

I AM the Ascended Master MORE, and I would like to build on what I gave you yesterday, and what Mother Mary has given you, and direct it to the topic of how you can overcome your past. One of you mentioned to the messenger today that he still feels that he is stuck in the past, living in the past, looking back to the past, perhaps even longing for some lost paradise that you experienced some time in the past. Many, many spiritual people throughout the world have this feeling that they have lost something and, of course, you have lost something. You have lost the innocence you had before you came here and, in a sense, our teachings could be said to be an attempt to help you regain and reclaim that innocence.

Now, how do you get free of this sense of living in the past, of an attachment to the past? Well, we have, of course, given you many tools and teachings already. It is clear that when you dissolve the energy that pulls you, the emotional energy that pulls you towards thinking about certain situations from the past, this will help you be free. When you dissolve certain selves, when you see, for example, that if you were exposed to a trauma, you created a self in response to it, in reaction to it. When you come to identify that self and let it die, you are free from at least that situation.

Overcoming the fear of making decisions

More than that, there are certain selves that are not really created by you in reaction to a specific situation. They are created in reaction to what it feels like to be in embodiment on a planet as dense as earth. We might even say that these selves are very much there in the collective consciousness. It is difficult to not be affected by them, especially after you receive a birth trauma and you are shocked by the conditions on earth being so different than what you had envisioned before you came here. It is easy for you to take on some of these collective selves that have been created over a long period of time and which, as we have said before, were created in order to deal with the situation that people feel they cannot live with. You cannot live with the situation, you cannot escape it so you have to find a way to deal with it, and be able to at least live even if you cannot live well or live in a peaceful manner.

There are certain selves that have floated around out there in the collective consciousness for a long time and one of these selves is, of course, (building on what Mother Mary said) that you are either perfect or you are no good. It is a self that causes people to feel that if you had done something that was labeled by yourself or by other people as a mistake, then you cannot escape that. You even have religion often being used to set up a standard for how people should behave. If you do something that your religion labels as a sin, you feel like you are stained forever by that sin. You even have the concept of original sin, saying that you were born into sin because of what your parents did or what your forefathers did, going all the way back to Adam and Eve. Clearly, you can see that such ideas are in complete violation of the reality of free will, but let us not even go into that. Let us just stay focused here on the fact that there are various selves that want you to think that once you have made what you accepted as a mistake, you cannot be free of it and, as we have said before, you cannot undo that physical situation.

How can you, then, be free of your past? Well, I am the Master, the Chohan, on the First Ray of God’s Will, so how can you be free of your past? Ultimately, you must make a decision to be free. Of course, it does not help you very much that I tell you: “You must make a decision to be free of your past.” Most of you will feel: “Well, how do I, do this?” You might even be afraid to make a decision. You need to realize that will is a very strong driving force—the will to be who you are, the will to be creative, the will to create something that is not there now.

This is all a great threat to the fallen beings and their control of this earth. They do not want you to be creative. They do not want you to come up with something that they cannot predict. If they cannot predict it, they cannot control it. They want (to use Nada’s expression) to “hammer down” your creativity so that it does not upset the status quo of their society where they are in control. One of the ways they do this is this standard that you are either perfect or no good and they make you feel that you have made a mistake and how did you make that mistake? By making a decision.

There is a self that has been in the collective consciousness for a long time, saying that it is dangerous to make decisions, that you should actually, as an individual, stop making decisions. You should follow the norms, follow the standards, follow the rules, do what everybody else is doing. In a sense, you are still making decisions but you are making decisions within a very narrowly defined framework. You are not making creative decisions—decisions that are new, that are an experiment. You are “doing,” making the same decisions that other people have made. This self projects at you that if you do this, you are safe, you will stay within a norm, you will not make a mistake, you will not be condemned, you will not be put down. You see here that there is a very strong collective self that wants people to not make individual creative decisions. “You don’t make a decision—you can’t make a mistake,” is what this self says.

Deciding not to be afraid to decide

Naturally, if you have come to earth as a co-creator, as an avatar, or if you are one of the original inhabitants who have grown to a certain level of consciousness, you cannot be at peace if you go into this state of mind. If you take this self into your four lower bodies, you cannot be at peace with being on earth because you know very well that you are not fulfilling your purpose for being here. You are not fulfilling your highest potential, you are not growing; you are not transcending yourself. You cannot be at peace with this. As long as you are not willing to make decisions, you cannot be at peace—it is that simple. What do you need to do to overcome this catch-22, this stalemate? Well my beloved, you need to make decisions—it is that simple.

Now, here is where even the teachings we give you can sometimes give you a slightly distorted perspective. Even going back to the 1930s when Saint Germain first released the techniques for invoking the violet flame, you saw some ascended master students who reasoned that all they needed to do was to give enough violet flame and one day they would wake up and be ready to ascend. Of course, this has never been the way it has really happened. As we have said before, it is not a mechanical path.

You could take the teachings that we have given you now and you could say: “Well, I just need to invoke enough energy through invocations and decrees that I dissolve the emotional energy that pulls me back to the past, and then I need to dissolve these selves and then one day I will be free of my past.” Of course, dissolving the energy, removing the selves will help lessen the pull that the past has on you. But what is the “you” that the past has a pull on? We have called it the Conscious You, simply to signify here that there is a part of your lower being, the being that is in embodiment, that is not your four lower bodies, that is not your separate selves, that is not your sense of personality—it is beyond it. This is what gives you the self-awareness that helps you step back from your present situation, your present sense of identity, and decide that you want to change.

Every time you come to identify: “Oh, I have a separate self in my being that projects that here is a problem I have to solve,” what is it that is able to realize this? It is the Conscious You. It is that part of you that has the ability to be conscious of your consciousness, be conscious of what is going on in your consciousness. You see that your outer personality, for example, is totally enveloped in your day-to-day situation. Your outer personality cannot step back and say: “It’s time to do something differently.” That is what the Conscious You can do when it becomes conscious of this ability. It can step back.

A separate self cannot step back, it cannot say: “Oh, I want to dissolve myself.” The Conscious You can step back and say: “I want to dissolve that self because it is not my self, it is not who I am.” Every time you become aware that there is a separate self, it is the Conscious You that is using its ability to be conscious of what is going on in your mind. You might say that it is the part of your mind that can be conscious of the rest of the mind. This is just one expression.

What does it take to let a separate self die? Well, the Conscious You must make that decision, and what is the decision you have to make in order to let any self die? Well, as we have said, there is a self that projects that there is a problem that you need to deal with. Say for example, to build on Mother Mary’s latest discourse, that there is a separate self that projects that you need to be perfect or you are no good. The self cannot ever question this, it will keep projecting at you that you need to strive to become better and better so that you can be perfect. Or, there is another self that will project that when you are not perfect (which, of course, you never are), then you should feel bad about yourself. There is another self that projects that you should stop trying because you are obviously not good enough, there is something wrong with you, and so forth.

These selves cannot ever overcome their programing. What the Conscious You needs to do is to see the illusion behind what the self is projecting, see that the problem projected by the self has no reality to it and, for that matter, it has no solution. There is no solution. What is perfection? It has never been defined because it cannot be defined because it is a meaningless concept. Therefore, my beloved, it is an unsolvable problem. You can never become perfect. When the Conscious You sees this, then the Conscious You can make the decision: “I no longer want to have my attention tied up in trying to solve this impossible problem.” And you let the self die.

The way out of the past

It is a little bit different, perhaps, with overcoming your past. Even though there is also a self that projects that you cannot be free of the past, what is the problem that this self is projecting? It is not quite as simple of a problem because the self is not really projecting that there is something you need to solve—because there is not something to solve. The past, according to this self, is set in stone and you can never be free of it. What the self is really projecting is that you should feel bad for what happened in the past and you should continue to do so. There is not really a problem to solve there, in the sense that the self is not giving you a way out.

Some of these other selves, they are giving you a way out, at least the illusion that one day you could become perfect. This self is not giving you a way out because you cannot change your past, according to what it is projecting. Of course, you can come to see that this is also an impossible situation but most people have been programed over lifetimes to believe that there is some truth here, in the sense that you cannot change what happened in the past, you cannot undo what you did. If you made a so-called mistake, you cannot undo it.

What can you, then, do to circumvent this problem, to come to see it in a different light? You can build on what I gave you in my latest discourse where I said that everything that you do is done with the basic energy, the basic form of Ma-ter light, that makes up the four lower bodies of earth, the four realms of the material universe on earth. There is a certain energy and everything you do is done with that energy. That energy is simply, like we have said, much like the dots on a screen that can turn on and off, that can take on different colors and shapes, that can be arranged into different patterns.

As I said, you need to start training yourself that you see the energy behind the images that your mind is projecting upon the energy. Of course, this is not quite as simple of a task as we are making it out to be because, again, for a very long time, the collective consciousness has been solidified around certain images, for example, that something is a sin and something is wrong. You should feel bad about having done something wrong and you should feel that you could never be redeemed from having made certain mistakes. All of these things, many, many things, are in the collective consciousness, but you can still train yourself to realize that everything is made with energy and that the energy is just energy—it is just energy.

You may look at a certain situation, as I gave the example of a movie screen where you are seeing certain images on the screen but it is really patterns of light. You may look at a certain situation from your past through a specific self that says you made a mistake, and you can never be redeemed and you should feel bad. You may think that this situation did happen so it has some objective reality. It is not just a subjective thing. “No, the situation did happen. Other people saw it happen. God saw it happen.” The eye in the sky that is seeing everything, saw it happen and God is forever holding the image of you making this mistake and you can never be free of it. Other people are forever holding the image of this mistake and you can never be free of it. In other words, what has been projected by these selves and by the fallen beings is that a situation that happened in the past has some objective reality. Here is where you can begin to question this and realize a very, very simple truth.

Being creative in a quantum world

Listen to a recording of this dictation (subscribers only) 

Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels, December 1, 2018. This dictation was given at a conference in Tallinn, Estonia.

I AM the Ascended Master Mother Mary, and as you are beginning to realize, it is my intention to capture your attention and leave other masters waiting in the wings for this conference. Nevertheless, we are not in competition up here in the ascended realm, contrary to what you so often see on earth where there is indeed so much competition. What is this competition born from? It is born from some very subtle ideas put out by the fallen beings who say that there is something right, there is something wrong, there is something absolute, something ultimate. Therefore, someone can be right, someone can be wrong, someone can win and someone can lose. This very mindset has infused, has found its way into, almost all aspects of society.

You might say that there is clear competition in a sporting event where they are competing about who can run the fastest, who can jump the highest and so on. In this case, there will be one person that is the winner and others that find lower places in this hierarchy that emerges. Based on what you see in sporting competitions, you might say that there is no competition between religions, at least not the same kind of competition. There is really a competition among religions about who has the ultimate truth, which one is the only true religion. If you look at the Catholic church, that claims to be the only religion that can guarantee your salvation, then it is a competitive mindset: “We are the number one, we are actually the only one, we are the winners and all the others are losers. Those people who are not members of our religion are the losers and will go to hell.”

This infuses the mindset on this planet to a very large degree. As we have said before, the only thing the fallen beings really had to do to create a mess on earth was to project the idea that there is something that is right and wrong. There is a standard, and you need to compare everything you do or everything that happens to that standard and evaluate whether it is right or wrong.

Natural planets have no competition

What we are talking about at this conference is helping people make peace with being on earth. What I will say here does apply to the original inhabitants. I will use the example of avatars because it is the most clear-cut example. You see my beloved, one of the subtle differences between a natural planet and an unnatural planet is that on a natural planet there is no competition. We have said before that one of the central enigmas resulting from free will is to resolve this fact that you are here on this planet and there are other people in your immediate environment and even other people on the planet. How do you balance the exercise of your free will with the balance of the free will of everyone else?

The fallen beings have only one solution to this. It is that they seek to make their will the dominant one that everybody else conforms to. This has nothing to do with how things are on a natural planet. On a natural planet there is no competition. How do the beings on a natural planet, the co-creators on a natural planet, avoid conflict, avoid feeling these clashes? They are not actually avoiding it, they are just not producing competition because they are not in the state of separation. They do not see themselves as separate beings.

On a natural planet you do not see that you have a will that is separated from the will of all other people. You see that you are part of a whole and there are other beings who are part of that whole. How big that whole is depends on your growth level, the level of awareness you have reached. For some people on a natural planet, the whole that they are part of might be a small group that would be somewhat comparable to what you call a family on earth. There are, on natural planets, people who have just started out as co-creators and they live in these very small groups that are in many ways isolated from the rest of the people on their planet. People start out growing in a small group where they can easily balance the individual will with the will of other co-creators. They avoid having clashes because they all know each other and they know what the other person wants and they can cooperate.

As beings grow in awareness on a natural planet, they expand their awareness of the other beings on the planet and they now become aware of a larger group. What happens is that people then congregate together in places with people that have the same interests. You can even take the My Lives book and see how it is described that the protagonist became involved with theatre, later with government, later with spirituality. You would say that, for example, on a natural planet you could have certain cities that were dedicated to the performing arts. You could have some cities that were dedicated to music, some that were dedicated to visual arts, some to science and so forth.

The people who were interested in this would come together and they would form a certain unit. Perhaps there would be many units in a city and they would know each other and they would not be clashing, their wills would not be clashing. They would come together around a common goal that they would then pursue. Each person would know that they have a certain sphere where they exercise their individual creativity. Here, they have freedom to exercise their creativity but it also fits into a larger whole. There would be no clash between themselves and others, there is no competition; they are working together towards a common goal.

This was also what happened on earth before the descent into duality. Even those who are the original inhabitants of the earth can sense that they have within them this, very subtle, intuitive feeling that it should be possible to cooperate around a common goal without having all this conflict. What has to a large degree obscured this is the fallen beings, the standard of right and wrong. Somebody can be wrong, somebody can be right, there is only one right way. On a natural planet there is no right and wrong, there are many ways to be right, they are all right, they are all individual creative expressions. There is nothing right or wrong, the consideration does not even come to the people, to the beings, on a natural planet.

How co-creation works on a natural planet

What happens, then, when you come to a planet like earth that is an unnatural planet—how do you experience this as an avatar? On a natural planet you are working in a unit with other people, other beings. It is a harmonious unit because you have a common goal. Let us just take a practical example. You have a common goal of building a beautiful building. You have an overall vision of this building but the building requires many different skills: There are bricklayers, there are carpenters, there are painters, there are decorators, there are artists, there are metalworkers, there is this and that. All kinds of individual skills are needed to complete the building. There is no competition because each of these groups of people have their own area where they are creative, their own sphere of influence. They are not clashing with each other, they are working together on the common goal of building this building. You understand that on a natural planet there is a common space, a common vision, a common goal. Within that, there are individual areas for creativity. As an individual co-creator you are part of the whole, you know you are working with others but you also feel that you have plenty of room for your own creative expression.

What is the effect of this? It is, my beloved, that on a natural planet, a co-creator is working with the Ma-ter Light exactly as it is on earth. There is the Mat-er Light, you are using your mind to formulate an image and superimpose that image upon the Mat-er Light and the Mat-er Light, then, takes on that form. Here is the difference between a natural planet and earth. On a natural planet you are not using your physical body very much; most of what you bring forth on a natural planet is precipitated. There are some uses for the physical body (because the physical body is not seen as being separated from the three other bodies). You are aware, you are conscious, that you are co-creating with the mind, with the identity, mental and emotional mind that is bringing things into the physical. It is not, as it is on earth, where you think that practically everything you need to do to make something physical has to be done with the body or some machinery, some technology that is an extension of the body. On a natural planet you are much more aware that it is the mind. You are aware that you are co-creating by formulating images, matrices in the mind and projecting them, superimposing them, upon the Mat-er light.

When a group of people get together around a common goal, what happens is that their minds combine, they combine at the identity level and they then create within the Mat-er Light. Almost like we have said that the Creator creates, where at first the Creator creates a vacuum and then it projects a sphere in the vacuum and within that sphere forms can be created. Likewise, on a natural planet the people, who have decided to co-create, for example building a building, come together. First, they meditate together and they visualize, they create, the void. They create a void and then they project with their minds a sphere. They fill the void with the Mat-er Light that has been activated to a certain stage where it is ready to take on form but the form has not yet been differentiated. All of the people who are part of this whole now know that they are working with this Mat-er Light, they have a connection in their minds. Yet at the same time, each being knows that it has its own sphere where it is working with the Mat-er Light. It is therefore using its mind to formulate the image projected onto the Mat-er Light.

How it is to come to earth

What happens on a natural planet is that the Mat-er Light very easily takes on the form that is projected upon it by an individual co-creator. There is no opposition there. What you are used to, when you come as an avatar from a natural planet, is that it is very easy for you to work with the Mat-er Light. You can very easily project a mental image onto the Mat-er Light and the Mat-er Light takes on that form. One of the big shocks you have when you come to earth as an avatar is that on earth this very easy co-creation simply is not possible. It is not possible for several reasons. One is that the Mat-er Light on a natural planet has a higher vibration than the Mat-er Light that makes up earth. The higher the vibration, the more fluid the light is, the more easily it takes on the forms that you project on it with the three higher bodies. Light of a higher vibration more easily conforms to mental images because it is not as dense, not as solidified.

You come to earth, and the first shock you encounter is how dense matter is, how dense the Mat-er Light is on earth. You also need to realize here that on earth it is quite rare (it is not unseen but it is quite rare) that a group of people can get together around a common goal, a common vision. You can say that there are examples where millions of people have been working together to, for example, build the pyramids or build a city or so forth. In most cases this has happened in a way that we might call top-down management where somebody has decided, like a dictator decides: “We are going to build this palace.” Now, he forces all of the people to conform to that vision and build the palace. This does not mean that the people have bought into (as the saying goes) the vision, that they have accepted that this is what they want to do. They are forced to do it and so they do it. You could say that they are working together but they are not doing it with the same sense of oneness that is there on a natural planet. The result of this, my beloved, is that when people do not have a common vision, when they are not accepting that vision, when it is forced upon them, they cannot combine their minds to, first, create the void and then fill that void with the Mat-er Light that has been activated. You do not have access to this, we might call it “raw material” that very easily takes on form. It could be created on earth. If you had a group of people who could come together in a state of oneness and harmony, then they could create this. It would be more difficult than on a natural planet but it could be done. It has very rarely been done on earth because usually the fallen beings have been inserting themselves into the process and forcing the people to create what glorifies the fallen beings. Naturally, on a natural planet you do not see the creation of a palace that is meant for one king or one emperor to sit there on a throne and appear almighty and powerful.

On earth, you do not have a raw material that easily takes on form. At the same time that you do not have a common energy source, you do not have a situation where each co-creator, each person, has its own separate sphere where it can be creative. You do not have a common space and you do not have an individual space for co-creation. What you see on earth is that when people want to create something, they cannot create this separate sphere of activated Mat-er Light. They have to work with the common sphere, the common energy, what we have called the background or the basic vibration of the planet. This is their raw material. In other words, everybody on earth has the same raw material.

At the same time, you see that it is very difficult on earth to have your own sphere of creativity. Now, you may look at history and you may see that some people have managed to carve out a certain sphere of creativity. This may be writers who have been able to write something that is beyond the collective consciousness. It may be painters who have painted something completely new, not the way it was traditionally done. It is because these people have been able to carve out a certain space in their minds that was somewhat protected from the collective consciousness. What you also see is that these forms of creativity are individual creative efforts. A painter is sitting there in his studio painting a painting and there is nobody else there.

As soon as you have a situation where two or more people have to cooperate, then you have an entirely different dynamic. You have the dynamic where they do not have an individual space. They are all working in a common space and that means, in its essence, that what you do as an individual is affected by the collective consciousness of all the people on the planet. You can, again, find situations where a group of people have managed to set themselves apart, for example in a monastery or in a remote community. They have therefore somewhat been able to insulate themselves from the collective but they are still working with that base energy that is more dense. They are still working in an environment where, even though they may have insulated themselves somewhat, they are not free of the collective consciousness so there is a constant interference from the collective consciousness.

Claiming your God-given right to forget

Listen to a recording of this dictation (subscribers only) 

Ascended Master MORE through Kim Michaels, November 30, 2018. This dictation was given at a conference in Tallinn, Estonia.

I AM the Ascended Master MORE, and it is my joy to give you another installment up from the one I gave you last year on this very profound and very important topic of the birth trauma and how you overcome it. You might look at what Gautama Buddha said earlier in the question and answer session about time and about how, if you cannot go back in time to change what happened in the past, if you do not have a time machine, you cannot be free of the past [See the last chapter of this book]. As Gautama said, Mother Mary has indeed given you a time machine in her exercise of how to go back to experience that birth trauma [In the book Healing Your Spiritual Traumas].

I would like to give you one more time machine. You see my beloved, what the fallen beings want you to think is that the past is set in stone, it cannot be changed. Once you have made a certain mistake here on earth, you can never be free of it. Now, imagine that you are standing in front of a large stone wall. If you have been to the Great Wall of China, to the Pyramids, to the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem or to any of the fortifications you see here in this city of Tallinn or any of the other older cities in the world, you do not even have to imagine. You know exactly what it feels like to be standing in front of one of these massive stone walls. How can you break that down with your bare hands? Well, you cannot but why is that? Well, it is partly because the stones are hard and partly because they are glued together.

Imagine that, first of all, you could remove the mortar, you could remove the cement that keeps the stones stuck together. If the stones were loose, it is, of course, much more manageable to break down the wall. Yet, it still might be difficult, depending on the size of the stones. What if you could reduce the stones to a smaller substance, such as sand? What if you had some kind of machine that could send some kind of ray at this stone wall and suddenly all the stones crumbled and became sand?

Well, this is indeed what we have already given you the power to do with decrees and invocations. Not, of course, that you could crumble a stone wall, although theoretically if enough of you were standing in front of one of these stone walls, it would be possible to break it down. Nevertheless, we are not really interested in having our students go around breaking down stone walls around the world, possibly getting imprisoned for destroying historical monuments. We are far more interested in having you break down the walls in your own minds that are keeping you trapped and tied into a reactionary pattern with the fallen beings.

Naturally, you have the decrees and invocations that, as we have said many times, can be used to dissolve the energy and when the energy is less, it is easier for you to free yourself from the pattern. Still, as we have also said many times, there needs to be a conscious experience, a conscious decision, before you are truly free. It is not a mechanical process.

Becoming aware of the process of seeing

What I want to offer you here is this. You need to start, and it may begin slowly, but you need to start training your minds to envision, to imagine and eventually to actually see and experience what you already know intellectually, namely that the entire material world is built of energy. Imagine now, that you become aware that you had a very traumatic situation in your past and you are carrying that birth trauma with you. What is that situation made of? As Gautama Buddha said, time has moved on and the physical situation is no longer there, it has simply been erased by time. Or it has, we could say, been painted over by time, by the big paintbrush of time that has changed things into what they are now. As Gautama said: What is now, may indeed be affected by the past but nevertheless the past is no longer there as a physical reality. It is there as an imprint or an image in your mind, in your three higher bodies, in a certain sense also in your physical body.

The question now is, how to free yourself from this imprint. What you need to start pondering is how your physical brain, your physical eyes (but especially the brain) and how your outer mind looks at, perceives situations—for that matter, perceives everything. Right now you are sitting here, you are looking at this wall behind the messenger, which is fairly solid, and what you are seeing is actually an image. We have said before that your eyes are not really seeing a wall, your eyes are simply receiving impulses coming to them, hitting the retina as light rays. The eye is not really seeing but is reacting to light rays. These create a reaction in the eye that is transformed into a signal similar to what you see in a computer with a digital signal. This signal is sent to what you call the visual cortex in the brain.

Now, the brain has the effect of helping you make sense of the physical world. The primary tool you use to help make sense of the physical world is that the brain imposes certain images upon the impulses that are coming from the eyes. The eyes are not seeing. In a sense, you could say that the brain is not seeing either. The brain is simply taking the impulses that come from the eyes, organizing them into an image that matches what the brain already has in its database. The brain, as it has been proven by many of these optical illusions that you have all seen, is not actually seeing what is in front of you. It is looking for a pattern that matches something it already has in its database. It is not looking at exactly what are the signals that are coming from the eyes, it is looking for a pattern that it can recognize. Once it has enough impulses that form a recognizable pattern, the brain actually stops reacting, stops looking at the impulses from the eyes and now it superimposes that stored pattern upon what you are seeing and saying: “Oh, this is what it is.”

This, of course, has been going on here on earth for millions of years. When you come into this embodiment, your brain is not starting at zero and having to train itself and build up these images of what is this and what is that. Your brain is very much tied in to this collective momentum and so your brain already has a certain programming: This is a tree, this is a rock, this is the ocean, this is the sky, and so forth and so on. You have a database of patterns that not only you have seen before but that the collective consciousness has seen before. Therefore, you are used to seeing everything in terms of images and you are labelling everything, often labelling it with words, which adds another layer of complexity where the visual cortex basically recognizes shapes. The visual cortex of the brain might look at the shape of this wall and the color and the texture, but there is another aspect of the brain which then translates that into words, such as: “This is a wall.” This adds another layer where there is also a very old momentum of people putting words on everything.

How you are trapped by your perception

It says in the Bible that God gave Adam the power to name every animal on earth. There are some that believe that if you know the name of a thing, you have power over the thing. The deeper reality is that when you name something, you are actually limiting yourself because you are reinforcing your mental box. Now, you think that this thing is the way you have labelled it and it will always be so. You cannot look beyond the programming, at least most people cannot. Therefore, you think: “This is the way it is.” You have tied in to this collective momentum and you have built your own momentum over your past lifetimes.

When we tell you that there was a period or a situation in the past where you experienced a very traumatic situation and we give you an example, such as in the My Lives book where the protagonist experienced this very difficult situation, then you are so programmed, your brain is so programmed, to superimpose an image upon this, to put words upon it and to say: “This is how it was.” The question now is: How do you truly become free of a situation from your past? As long as you have in your brain, even in your three higher bodies, the imprint of that situation, the images, the words that you associate with that situation, as long as they are stored there, you cannot be free of that situation from the past.

What I am telling you is that you can start retraining yourself. You can actually train your mind to override your brain. It may help you to take some of these many, many optical illusions that are out there. You have the classical one of the drawing that can look like a young beautiful woman or an old wrinkled lady, depending on how you focus on it. You have many others with different colors, different shapes and so forth and so on. If you have never really done this, it might help you to take some of these and realize that you cannot actually trust your senses. You cannot trust your brain because there is a certain programming there that makes it see things a certain way even though that is not the way they really are. You can also take another step and imagine what it is like to sit in a movie theatre. You are seeing something on the screen and because the movie theatre is dark, it is possible for you to become completely engrossed in it, to the point where you might even feel that you are right there in the situation that is being displayed on the screen. You are certainly so absorbed in it that you forget everything else. You can train yourself to realize that the images that are displayed on the screen, not only do they not represent a physical reality (because you know they are just images on a film strip in the projector), but even beyond that, you can train yourself to see that these are just patterns of colored dots that are projected onto the screen. You can actually come to a point where you train your eyes to go slightly out of focus and, now, instead of seeing these figures, these people or whatever is projected on the screen, you are just seeing the different fields of colored light rays that are projected onto the screen. When you work with this, you can gradually, over some time, come to the point where you can apply this to everyday life. You can train yourself to see that this wall behind the messenger is really not a wall. It is just certain light rays that form certain patterns.

You might even, as a child, have been told to take a newspaper photograph and look at it through a magnifying glass. Then, you can see that what seems to be certain fields, certain shapes, are actually made out of black dots that are arranged in various degrees of density. The darker the color, the closer the dots are together. The lighter the color, the further they are spaced apart. It is all made of black dots that simply cheat your brain into seeing an image. You can actually train yourself to focus on the dots rather than the image. You can then apply this to all situations in life, but it is not so important to apply it at this point to specific situations in life.

Breaking images of your past down to smaller units

What I desire you to start doing, is to look at situations from your past. Perhaps, you have a sense of your birth trauma and you do not feel it is resolved. Perhaps, you have another situation, even a situation from this lifetime where you feel something traumatic happened. You can now consider: When you think about that situation, what is the image that your brain brings up or that your three higher bodies bring up? What is that image? You would say, then, from a certain linear perspective that if you have a memory, if you have an image from your past, then you can never be free of that image because whatever happened in the past happened and you cannot change this. There is nothing you can do about it.

This is, of course, what the fallen beings want you to believe, not what is reality. You can train yourself to bring up these images for your inner vision. Then, you can train yourself to see them, not as the shapes and the images that you have but simply as patterns of light rays or patterns of atoms, electrons, subatomic particles—or however you can visualize this. You break the image down into a smaller component, however you can visualize this. As I said, if you are standing in front of a stone wall, you can break the stones down into sand particles that are much easier to move than the solid stones. That is what you can train yourself to do with these images from your past that might be haunting you, or that you may have suppressed but you then bring it up when you start touching on the birth trauma.

You can train yourself to consciously recognize: “This image is just an image that my brain and my emotional, mental and identity bodies are superimposing upon this.” The reality is that it is not a physical situation anymore. It is just an image. That image is made up of these smaller electromagnetic light particles, these dots, these images made out of dots. You can even look at one of the paintings of the Impressionists, and at a certain distance you cannot see all of the dots they use to paint. When you go closer and closer to the painting, you begin to see the dots and if you get close enough to the painting, all you see is the dots because you cannot see the image. I am asking you here to train yourself, and this again has something to do with going into the pain. Now, it is not the pain you are going into, it is the visual image that you have in your mind.

You go closer and closer to that image until all you see are those dots. Then, you realize that the dots are the deeper reality. The images were just something superimposed by your brain and your emotional, mental and identity bodies. It is actually the dots that are the reality. You also realize that those dots are dynamic, they are fluid, they are constantly vibrating and they could as easily outpicture any other image as they could outpicture the present image. More than that, the dots could actually be set free from the matrix that has been superimposed upon them so that they return to their ground state, to a free state where they are just neutral, they are not displaying any image.

You might envision that the image is gradually dissolved into these smaller components, that the components start vibrating and moving, moving around, dissolving the shapes of the image and just taking on a uniform color. You might see that they become like the water of the ocean, or the sand of the desert, or the air of the blue sky but they become feature-less, image-less. The image is dissolved, you are letting it go. It is as if you are making a decision, and you are making a decision at a certain point, to say: “I am letting this image die, I am letting it dissolve. I am simply forgetting it.”

Experiencing yourself on earth

Listen to a recording of this dictation (subscribers only) 

Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels, November 30, 2018. This dictation was given at a conference in Tallinn, Estonia.

I AM the Ascended Master Mother Mary, and I want to follow up on my previous dictation and your discussions. I am grateful that you have been willing to share your feelings about being on earth. Whether they are positive or not so positive, it is important for you to share this and to be willing to acknowledge what feelings you have. Naturally, there are no wrong feelings. The feelings you have are the feelings you have. Surely, this is a very difficult planet, especially if you come from a background of a natural planet. If you are one of the original inhabitants of the earth and have been here for much longer, then you will not have the same feelings. You will naturally feel that this is a much more positive planet, than if you have the contrast between a natural planet and this. It is important to acknowledge feelings because, as we have said many times, you cannot truly overcome the feelings, you cannot overcome the self, until you become conscious that it exists, that it is there, that it has certain feelings.

Who is having the feeling?

Once you have brought the feelings out in the open, you can start looking at: Where do the feelings come from? You can even ask the question: “Who is feeling this way, is it me or is it a self?” Naturally, it is a self that feels this way because the feeling is related to earth. That means it is a reactionary feeling and only a reactionary self can have such a feeling. You, as what we have called the Conscious You, do not actually have feelings. There can be feelings in your emotional body and you may be experiencing the world through the coloring, through the filter, of those feelings, but you are not actually having the feeling. I understand that it feels like you are having the feeling, and the consequence of that is that the feeling is having you. The reason for this is that you are identified with a certain self, you have not yet come to see that it is a separate self: that it is not you. That is why you have the formula, that we have given you previously, on how to come to identify these selves, how to switch out of them and eventually let them die.

When you do this, and when you have made the calls for the consuming or the transformation of the energy that was stored in the self, then you can be free of that feeling. You can, therefore, be free to embrace your life on earth with a positive feeling. The reason we are asking you to bring out whatever feelings you have is so that you do not have to live the rest of your time on this planet being burdened by these very intense negative feelings. I can assure you that I myself had some very negative feelings about being on earth when I was in embodiment. There is absolutely no way I want to give you the image that I was any different than you, that I was so much higher than you that I did not have these feelings. I had many of the same feelings that you have expressed today.

Your feelings about people

If you look at what was said here, you can see that, generally speaking, there is a difference between what you feel about the earth and what you feel about people. It can be helpful for you, just in your own private considerations, to look at what you actually feel about people. You can then seek to differentiate. Is this feeling you have, for example that “people are stupid,” related to all people or is it related to some people? If so, what kind of people? Often, you will find that the most intense feelings you have about people are related to the fallen beings. They were caused by the fallen beings. The fallen beings did something to you or you watched the fallen beings do something to others and this is what caused you to have very intense feelings about people. You can then begin to differentiate and see that, perhaps, it is not all people you feel this about. That means you can start having a different relationship with most people you encounter because, surely, most people you encounter are not fallen beings. (Even though many of you, not all of you but many of you, have had relationships with fallen beings in this lifetime and in many past lifetimes.)

I have said previously that I would like you to not look at me as if I was a fallen being, not relate to me through the images and expectations created by the fallen beings. I would also like you to relate to other people as if they are not fallen beings so that you differentiate and realize that your most intense feelings about people are related to the fallen beings. Therefore, you cannot evaluate or relate to other people, to all people, based on these feelings. That means you can then begin to soften up your view of people so that it is not all people. You are not generalizing based on the fallen beings and letting them color your view of people and your relationship to people.

There are many of you who felt that you came here partly to help other people in various ways, perhaps also to teach other people. You have all felt that, yes, you were treated in a very harsh way by the fallen beings, but many of you have felt that you were treated with indifference by the majority of the people on earth. They either did not even pay attention to you or they were somewhat hostile, not wanting to be disturbed. It is a very common feeling among avatars, among spiritual people in general, that people do not want to listen to you. They do not want to listen to you talk about your spiritual knowledge, your spiritual awareness. They do not want to be disturbed, they just want to live the same kind of life and they do not want to change. Many of you have felt alone. You have felt rejected. You have felt you do not belong here precisely because of this mechanism. This, then, does not have anything to do directly with the fallen beings, although the fallen beings have also tried to put you down because you were teaching people what the fallen beings do not want them to know. Nevertheless, the greater reaction you have had is from people who simply did not want to listen to anything you had to say, to the message you had to bring.

Free will and your feelings about people

This is a topic that will take some more work on your part before you come to this point where you can make peace with the fact, the observable fact, that most people on earth do not want to listen to a spiritual teaching. They do not, as was said earlier, actually want to escape their suffering even if you can tell them how to do so. In order to do this, you might have to consider what was said earlier about the fact that you need to develop this absolute respect for free will. It goes two ways. You have the respect for the free will of others and you have the respect for your own free will. Truly, there are two aspects to this that you need to ponder. Number one is that as an avatar coming from a natural planet, you are coming from an environment where nobody is forcing the free will of others. That is one of the main characteristics of a natural planet. The inhabitants of a natural planet have no need to force the free will of others.

You do actually have the respect for free will when you come here, but it is possible that, after having encountered the fallen beings and seeing how they actually manipulate people on earth, you can forget that respect for free will. You can even adopt the attitude that because people have been forced and manipulated by the fallen beings, it is okay for you to be somewhat forceful in seeking to awaken people. You are not manipulating them as the fallen beings are doing but you are forcing them to hear what you are saying.

There are some of you who will be able to look at some of the older teachings that we have given, on what it means to be the Christ on earth, where you are here to disturb status quo, you are not here to leave people in the same state you found them. You see Jesus who was challenging to people, overturning the tables of the money changers, challenging the scribes and Pharisees, challenging the people that he met, such as “Let him who is without sin among you cast the first stone” and other situations. You might look at this and say: “But if we are here to create a positive change and if people are so trapped by the fallen beings, then we might need to be forceful in order to even penetrate the resistance people have and be able to reach them with any kind of message.” It is not that these things are invalid but the question is: From which state of mind are you doing it? What we are calling those of you, who are avatars, to do is to step up to where you can be on earth, you can do whatever you choose to do on earth, but you are not basing it on these reactionary selves, from the primal self and all the other selves you have created.

You see my beloved, it is possible for people with their outer minds to look at Jesus, to take the teachings on Christhood, and then decide with the outer mind: “This is what I’m going to do to awaken other people.” Over the decades where we have given these teachings through various organizations, we have seen some people react this way. You will see that Master MORE in Kazakhstan gave his very, very profound dictation about a previous dispensation and how people got all fired up and all “blue-ray” about going out there and awakening other people [See the book Fulfilling Your Highest Spiritual Potential]. What you realize is that even though the goal was legitimate enough, the way it was done is that people did this based on these outer selves that they had. It was almost like for some people they had many lifetimes of frustration being on the earth and now they felt the ascended masters had given them free reign to go out and be forceful and blue-ray—and now they were going to do this to compensate for all those lifetimes of frustration. Now, they could finally achieve the goal that they had set.

You see, my beloved, these people were not at peace with being on earth. Jesus was not always at peace either when he challenged people. This does not mean that you cannot rise to the point where you can be on earth and you can perhaps (if this is what is in your Divine plan and what you feel), challenge people but you are doing it from a state of peace. You are, as the messenger said earlier, not trying to change other people in order to avoid having a negative feeling in yourself or about yourself because you have resolved the feeling in yourself. You have gotten rid of these separate selves and therefore you are at peace when you are interacting with other people.

Living with what you cannot live with

Listen to a recording of this dictation (subscribers only) 

Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels, November 30, 2018. This dictation was given at a conference in Tallinn, Estonia.

I AM the Ascended Master Mother Mary, and it is my great joy and my great privilege to open this conference and welcome you, those who are here physically; those who are connected via the internet. The topic that was originally proposed for this conference was: “How to help people in Eastern Europe be at peace,” but we felt that it was not just a matter of people here in Eastern Europe who could benefit from the teachings we wanted to give. Surely, people everywhere have trouble being at peace with being on earth. My beloved, what we desire to accomplish with this conference is to give you some teachings that are not just for avatars, not just for ascended master students, but in the long run can be for all people on earth, even the original inhabitants of the earth or those who have come here from other planets that have fallen below their natural level.

Rethinking what is normal

Naturally my beloved, you have grown up on earth and most of you have grown up with an image that perhaps earth is the only planet in the universe that has any form of life. Perhaps it is a very important planet for God—if you grew up in a Christian environment. Perhaps you have grown up thinking that you are an evolved ape and the chances of life occurring are so small that they probably only happen on very few planets. Because you have grown up with this view that earth might be the only planet, you have, without realizing it, come to accept a lot of the conditions that you see on earth. This does not mean that you have accepted them as good but you might have accepted them as normal, as natural or as inevitable, as unavoidable. “This is just the way things are.”

This, of course, relates to the teachings we have given you over the years that once you are trapped in a dualistic state of consciousness, you cannot get out of it unless you have a frame of reference that shows you that there is something outside of that state of consciousness, there is a different way to look at life. My beloved, it is natural, when you have grown up in the current environment on earth, that you have not been given such a frame of reference. You have not been told, for example, that there are natural planets where many of the phenomena you see on earth are not manifest, are not occurring. You have grown up feeling that there is no point in even questioning what is going on, on earth because that is obviously the way things are. What you have to do is just find a way to live with it.

Adaptability is a blessing and a curse

You see my beloved, here we are touching upon a topic that is, in a sense, both a blessing and a curse. It is, of course, something that relates to some degree to what the evolutionists talk about, how a species adapts to its environment. Even though there are many evolutionists who always champion the credo of the survival of the fittest, if you actually look at evolutionary history, you will see that the fittest are actually not the strongest, not the most aggressive, as some of these evolutionists want you to think. No my beloved, the fittest are the most adaptable. The reason human beings have spread to all corners of the earth and have, at least from an evolutionary standpoint, been the most successful species on earth is that human beings are more adaptable than any other species that you see on earth. Now, why are human beings more adaptable than any animal species? Because humans are not animals. You are not actually one step up from the apes, as the evolutionists want you to think. You are a quantum leap above the apes because you have self-awareness, and it is precisely this self-awareness that makes it possible for human beings to adapt to so many different conditions.

An animal species is largely programmed to behave a certain way. This means that the animal, if it finds itself in a hostile environment, cannot step back and say: “How do I need to change my behavior in order to survive in this environment?” Nor can it, for that matter, step back and say: “How can I change the environment so I can survive in that environment?” An animal species does not have this ability. Human beings do, which demonstrates to anyone who is willing to look at facts that human beings are not animals. You are not further evolved animals because you cannot find an animal that has this ability to a lower degree than humans. I know some will come up with examples but the reality is that you cannot find an animal species that has a lower degree of self-awareness than humans so that from the level of awareness that the animal has, you can gradually evolve to the human level. In order to get from even the highest animal species to humans, you have to make a quantum leap because you have to be given that self awareness from a higher source—it cannot evolve.

The adaptability of human beings is a blessing in the sense that you can adapt to many different environments. It is also a curse in a sense that it is this ability that makes it possible to look at the current conditions of earth and decide: “Oh, I just have to live with it. I can’t possibly change it. There’s no point in even questioning it. I just have to make the best of it.” Therefore, human beings have, over the course of history, adapted to many conditions that they actually could have changed if they had the awareness that this was possible, the vision of how things could be changed and the willingness to implement it. It is precisely this ability that the fallen beings have used to control the population over and over again, in civilization after civilization, even going far beyond current history. What you currently see as history is, of course, a manipulation of the fallen beings where they do not want you to know the past history of civilizations that have disappeared and that were more highly evolved than the present one.

The reason for this is, again, they do not want you to have the frame of reference that there have been civilizations in the past who were far more evolved than the current civilization but they collapsed because of the influence of the fallen beings. Therefore, it is also possible for your civilization, not only to evolve further but it is also possible for your civilization to decline—if you do allow the fallen beings to continue to run everything. They do not want you to have that frame of reference, which could actually be given to you if you knew the history of past civilizations. They want you to believe that you are a species with a very short lifespan, whether it be the few million years recognized by science, or the 6,000 years recognized by fundamentalist Christians or the also very short lifespan recognized by most religious people who believe in the Old Testament and think that God created the earth not so long ago in its present form. Naturally, God (as the highest being in the universe, what we call the Creator) did not create the earth in its present form because God surely could have envisioned a planet where war, mayhem, torture and all of these other things do not occur.

My beloved, what I am telling you here as spiritual people – as avatars, as those who are the original inhabitants of the earth who have started raising your awareness – is very simple. You have inherited from your species, from the collective consciousness, from your parents, from previous generations, this ability to adapt to material conditions, to accept conditions for what they are and find a way to live with them. This is an ability that in some ways has served humankind, but for you who are spiritual people, there comes that point in your growth where you have to take a look at this and decide: “I am going to raise myself above this collective momentum of adapting to physical conditions.” What is it we have been telling you throughout the years in our teachings? You are not here to accept current conditions and adapt to them. You are here to raise current conditions, to raise the collective and even to raise the physical conditions. You cannot do that if you are an adaptive animal. You can do it only when you recognize you are a spiritual being and you decide: “I am going to raise myself above this ability to accept current conditions and adapt to them.”

The condition you cannot live with

In order to fully understand this, in order to implement what I am telling you, you need to have the background that we have so carefully given you, starting even before but certainly at the conference here in Estonia last year with the teachings on the birth trauma and the primal self [In the book Healing Your Spiritual Traumas]. Whether you are an avatar or whether you are one of the original inhabitants of the earth, there came that point where you were exposed to such severe conditions that you had that birth trauma, or earth trauma, as we have called it for the original inhabitants of the earth. Then, you created that primal self that is a reactionary self. What you need to begin to contemplate here is that whether you are an original inhabitant or an avatar, once you come to a certain awareness, you know within you that things do not have to be the way they are on earth. There is an alternative; things could be better. You may not be able to formulate this in words, you may not have even a clear conscious awareness of it but you have some frame of reference that the things that are going on here on earth are not the highest possible.

Now, the curious thing about this is – and it is most clear in an avatar so I will use this as an example – that as an avatar you come into your first embodiment on earth, and even though you do not retain the conscious memory of what it was like to be on a natural planet, you still have a strong sense that many of the things you encounter on earth are not the highest possible, that there is an alternative. Things do not have to be that way. Here you are, you are now, so to speak (because that is how most of us feel), trapped in this dense physical body in this dense physical world. You are surrounded by other people who also have physical bodies and who, regardless of how you feel, regardless of what you think, have the ability to hurt you, to use their physical bodies to harm your physical body.

There is nothing you can do about this once you are in the physical body. No matter what was done to you, even being in the physical body and looking at, experiencing, what is happening on earth, there is nothing you can do about that. We have said before that you can be an avatar who is looking down on earth and you decide that you want to take embodiment here and you can, of course, see that there are many conditions that are not right but you cannot experience those conditions from a distance. You will not truly experience what the earth is like until you are trapped, stuck in a physical body. Once you are here, once you are in that physical body, you suddenly experience what the earth is like. You even experience the energies that are here that are so dense, the collective consciousness is so dense, there is so much aggression, so much hatred, so much fear. You experience this in a way you could never even imagine as an avatar. The reality of it is that part of the shock that you experience is that there is a certain condition that most likely was one of the conditions, or maybe the primary condition, you looked at before you came to earth and you decided you wanted to help remove that condition from the earth. You now are in the body, you are experiencing this condition and when you experience how intense it is (how heavy it is, how difficult it is), then the reaction that you have is: “I can’t live with this. I can’t live with this condition being present on earth.”

It may not be as described in the My Lives book that you are personally tortured. Not all of you were exposed to this kind of radical personal attack. Some of you experienced a shock just by seeing how other people are living and how they are suffering. As an avatar you have never encountered this on a natural planet and you do not feel that anyone should ever be exposed to this kind of condition. Therefore, your reaction is: “I can’t live with this condition existing on this planet, I can’t live with being in an environment where this condition is existing.”

This is your reaction. You literally withdraw into yourself. You are so shocked that it is almost like you tried to pull your entire aura back inside to some safe spot where you can forget that this condition exists. Yet, you cannot do this because you are (as I said) stuck in the physical body. There is no way out of the physical body. As this initial shock begins to dissipate a little bit, you are faced with this very stark reality. Everything in your emotional body, your mental body and your identity body tells you: “I can’t live on this planet when this condition is here. I can’t live with this.” Yet, your physical body, when it gets hungry enough, tells you that you have to live on this planet and you have to do what it takes to keep the physical body alive.

Americans have a right to demand better leaders

Listen to a recording of this dictation (subscribers only) 

Ascended Master Gautama Buddha through Kim Michaels, September 30, 2018. This dictation was given at a conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

I AM the Ascended Master Gautama Buddha. It has been my privilege to seal many of these ascended master conferences, and it is always a great joy for me because I get to see how much progress you have made in such a short time span. I have a few remarks on the topic of how to align America with the mind of Saint Germain. First, I want to build upon what Saint Germain talked about, about those who have been fooled into fighting for the cause of freedom. I simply want to put out the question in the collective consciousness of America: “How can killing another human being ever advance the cause of freedom?”

When you contemplate this, you recognize, at least if you know the teachings we have given on the fallen beings and the duality consciousness, that one of the primary things that people need to be free from on earth is the manipulation of the fallen beings where people have been manipulated into killing each other for some epic cause. A cause that was defined by the fallen beings and had either the purpose of creating chaos and destruction or the purpose of getting people to misuse their free will in order to seemingly prove God wrong.

You see that anytime, literally anytime, where people have been manipulated into killing each other for some cause, that cause was defined by the fallen beings, the entire situation was manipulated by the fallen beings. Therefore, truly, you never can advance the true cause of freedom if you are killing other people. As long as you think that it is necessary to kill other people, perhaps even justified in order to advance some cause, then you are not in alignment with the mind of Saint Germain or the mind of Christ or the mind of the Buddha.

Would Jesus abuse children?

I also want to comment on this consciousness exposed by Cyclopea where, because people feel like sinners, they are not willing to speak out. They think that they are not worthy to speak out and therefore they remain silent in the face of abuse, manipulation and lies.

As someone pointed out to this messenger during lunch, you also have the statement made by Jesus in the situation where a woman was caught in adultery and the crowd wanted to stone her, and Jesus said: “Let he who is without sin among you cast the first stone.” This statement has, of course, been used to reinforce the consciousness that unless you are without sin or perfect, you should not criticize anyone else. The reality is, however, that Jesus made that statement in a specific situation where these men were willing to kill another human being.

If you want to take it literally, you could say: “Only those who are without sin should consider killing another human being.” In other words, if you recognize that you are not without sin, do not ever consider killing another human being. Of course, if you are without sin, you would never even consider killing another human being.

Of course, it is also an example of the fact that (and I have certainly seen this with the teachings I gave so long ago) whatever statement you make as a spiritual teacher in the dense environment of earth, the fallen beings can find a way to pervert it or make use of it to further their own ends. They have certainly made use of this statement, especially after they came up with the idea of original sin. You will see, for example, how they have used this in the Catholic church where there was hardly anyone for a thousand years who dared to criticize the leadership of the church. Even today, you see how this very consciousness of not thinking you can criticize if you are not free from sin, if you are not perfect, is one of the main reasons why it has taken so long before Catholics have exposed the sexual abuse by priests.

There is still this concept, this consciousness, that the people are ordinary sinners, that the leaders of the church although still human beings are in a higher class than the ordinary people because they are leaders of the church. Therefore, those below them should not criticize or point out any flaws. Do you see how perverted this consciousness is?

Let us just take at face value what the Catholic church claims that it is the true church representing Jesus Christ. Well, in that case, if the leaders of the church are representing Christ, they obviously should never do anything that Christ would not do. Certainly, I am sure that very few people would imagine to think that Jesus would have abused children. You see, if they really represent Christ, they should be in a higher state of mind. Therefore, if they are not, then they are not representing Christ. Therefore, it is not only legitimate but necessary that the people speak out and stop the abuse. Again, if the church has any legitimacy as representing Christ, then if there are actions taken by people in the church that are off course, if they are not pointed out, how can the church ever get back on course?

How the fallen beings use ritual

You see that there is this very heavy consciousness of not thinking that people have a right to criticize those above them. There is this heavy consciousness that people are sinners but the fallen beings are clever enough to know that not everyone is going to completely subscribe to this. Even if they do believe in this, there is a certain inbuilt drive in human psychology that people want to improve their position. It is very difficult to make human beings accept something as permanent. You can see this outplayed when people, as they so often do in America, sit in front of their televisions and flip channels.

The mind finds it difficult to stay on one topic for a long time but wants to shift into something else. You can see it in how many people struggle with meditation where it is so difficult to make the mind focus on one thing for any length of time. This is, in a sense, a saving grace. When the fallen beings come up with a concept of original sin, it seems to be a permanent state and there are people who will long for some way out of this permanent state.

The fallen beings have come up with a way to try to divert that longing. First of all, they have done it by the whole concept that you will be saved by the external savior after you die. Jesus will come and save you and take you to heaven if you have been a good Christian. They also do something else, which is perhaps even more subtle. They create a certain culture where, on the one hand, you are made to feel that you are a sinner, you are imperfect, you are not good enough. But then the fallen beings define a set of rules and rituals, and then they project that those who follow the rules and rituals, they are now better than those who do not. As a diversionary tactic to get people to look critically at the belief that you are sinners, they give you this diversion of saying that by following all the rules, by following all the rituals, then you are better than you were before, you are better than those who are not doing it.

You see this in the Catholic tradition, for example, where some people literally are afraid of not going to mass. They feel it is disastrous if their family members do not go to mass. You see it also, my beloved, in spiritual movements where, for example, you can see in Tibet how they have created these elaborate rituals, even the prayer wheels where they believe that by performing this (rather mechanical) ritual over and over and over again, they will actually make progress towards whatever they see as their goal.

Look at even several previous ascended master dispensations where there were strict rules and where people became obsessed with following the rules. It was truly an obsessive-compulsive disorder that not only drove people to follow the rules, but it also created this very judgmental culture towards those who did not follow the rules. This was especially dysfunctional because it prevented the people from being united in Christ.

You have the story of Pentecost where the disciples received the Holy Spirit because they were of one accord in one place. Well, we have seen ascended master students be in one place but be so divided by this judgmental attitude that the Spirit could not descend. Naturally, we are calling you to come to a higher level and you are already at that higher level but you can, of course, progress even higher by using these teachings about the birth trauma and the separate selves. For when you come to that point of being in the neutral state of mind, you have no need to follow rules and you have no need to judge others based on whether they are following the rules. Rules fade away in Christhood and Buddhahood.

Being in a neutral state of mind

What is Buddhahood? Well, an important component of it is to be in that neutral state of mind, being non-attached because there is nothing that compels you to do anything. I am not saying this is all there is to Buddhahood, as there are stages of Buddhahood but it is certainly one component of it. When I sat under the Bo tree and was tempted by the demons of Mara, I could avoid reacting to their temptations only by remaining in that neutral state of mind. You cannot be in a neutral state of mind as long as you have the primal self and these other separate selves that are pulling you, compelling you, to do this, do that, do the next thing. More than that, these selves are telling you that you are not good enough, that there is something you have not done on earth, that you are supposed to do something on earth but you have not done it yet, you have not accomplished it.

As this messenger realized, an important component of this is that most of you came here because you wanted to improve things on earth but the only way to really improve things and produce tangible results is to change other people. As long as you think you have to change other people, you cannot be at peace. You are in this constant push-pull of being compelled to do something that is impossible to achieve because of the free will of other people. This can cause some avatars to go into wanting to use force, even though they, of course, never use force to the degree that the fallen beings are using force. There can be this desire to use force in order to free people from suffering.

This is, of course, one of the primary challenges for an avatar: to take a look at what it was for you individually that brought you to earth. What were your desires, your vision, your understanding? What was the goal you had that you wanted to accomplish? Then, take a look at this and realize that this was based on your consciousness at the time. In reality you did not come here to change other people but to free yourself from that consciousness that you had when you came here, however it was for you individually. In a sense what have the other masters talked about? Improving the public discourse, connecting to the essential humanity, finding a different way to talk to each other, these are all aspects of attaining that neutral state of mind.

Looking at how America fits into the whole

I am, of course, not looking to convert all Americans to become Buddhists, as the Buddhist religion has little relevance for the West in the modern age. However, it was never my intention to get people who considered themselves my followers to join a particular outer religion. I wanted people to walk the path towards Buddhahood, and certainly Saint Germain has attained Buddhahood and, as he has demonstrated in his dictations, he seeks to raise all life. The most important shift that could happen for aligning America or rather Americans with the mind of Saint Germain is that they begin to look beyond themselves, to look at the whole. How can we use the privileges and the freedoms we have to help others? My beloved, you take Saint Germain’s discourse about American foreign policy being an extension of the fallen beings and the power elite. You can see that there may be some trepidation about how America would be able to actually help the whole rather than serving the cause of the power elite. Nevertheless, there are enough Americans who either have begun to shift, or who could quickly begin to shift based on your calls, that they could be willing to come to that state where they can look neutrally at what is happening in America. Therefore, they can speak out about what is not right and demand change without going into an angry, dualistic reaction. There are enough Americans who can be neutral enough about looking at how they can help others without perpetuating the cause of the power elite.

The power elite and American foreign policy 

Listen to a recording of this dictation (subscribers only) 

Ascended Master Saint Germain through Kim Michaels, September 30, 2018. This dictation was given at a conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

I AM the Ascended Master Saint Germain, and I wish to give you one more discourse because we have talked about the internal state of America, but naturally we also need to talk about America’s role in the world.

The fallen beings are clever. They always manage to find something that appeals to the people and they use it for their own ends. What appeals to Americans? Freedom! It is one of the themes for the founding of this nation, and many Americans have a freedom flame they carry with them, a sense of what freedom is and this is very strong in Americans. We have talked a little bit about the difference between a communist society and America. In a communist society, the people who survived did not have a strong freedom flame or they would not have survived. I am not saying this to blame anybody but just to show the contrast.

Capitalism and communism have the same goal

What you have in America is that you have many people who have a strong dedication to freedom and how do the fallen beings pervert this? They pervert it (in a sense) from the very beginning of the creed: “Give me liberty or give me death.” They are saying: “Are you willing to die for the cause of freedom?”

Over the centuries that America has existed, many people have been willing to die for what they thought was the cause of freedom. We need to recognize the very fact that the power elite, and the fallen beings behind them, have an agenda, they have a very clear agenda. We have said it before, but I will repeat it here (so it can be part of the calls in the invocation made) that capitalism and communism are simply two different ways of achieving the same goal, namely a society that is completely controlled by the fallen beings through a power elite in embodiment. In a communist system, from the very beginning there is one entity that owns all property and all means of production, namely the state.

In a capitalist system, it seems as if there are many different owners of the means of production and there is the illusion that anybody can start a new business. The reality is that if you take capitalism to its ultimate conclusion, you will see, what you are already seeing now, that instead of a multitude of small independent businesses run by one person (maybe employing a few people but staying at a human scale where the individual matters), what you see is the emergence of corporations that very quickly become so big that they lose that human scale. They lose humanity because suddenly the workers do not matter anymore. It is only the leaders, and in many cases those leaders are not even involved with the business. They are stockholders, shareholders, they are board members that are not directly doing the work. What you have seen is the emergence of these corporations that are based on a completely narcissistic philosophy and attitude. They have no allegiance whatsoever to the people who are doing the actual work, not even to those who are the leaders but only to those who are the owners and the hidden power elite behind them.

Multinational corporations and foreign policy

There came a point when these corporations had become so large in America that they started looking outside of America to find new markets. They went international and multinational, if you will. Ever since that happened, you have seen these corporations try to extend their reach further and further around the globe. You have seen them become larger and larger, you have seen them fight with each other but you have also seen them merge into larger and larger entities. If you take capitalism to its logical conclusion, there will come a point where one corporation has now destroyed all competition and therefore we have a situation just like in a communist system where one entity owns or controls all means of production. It may not technically be the state, but if one corporation owns all means of production, it will also own the state, de facto. Capitalism and communism are two systems defined by the fallen beings to, in different ways, reach the same end, with a completely centralized system controlled by the fallen beings.

What does this have to do with American foreign policy? If you look at the constitution, it is very, very clear that the government is supposed to maintain an army for the common defense. In other words, the American armed forces constitutionally have only one role: to defend the people of America. What have you instead seen? You have seen that to an increasing degree, America’s armed forces have been used to fight battles and wars in foreign countries. This is not according to the constitution. What has been the reason, the justification given for why you send American soldiers to foreign lands, to shed their blood there when it is not what is defined in the constitution as the purpose of the American armed forces? Well, the excuse has always been “to defend freedom.”

The excuse for sacrificing American soldiers

For many years it was communism, but if communism is a system created by the fallen beings and it stands to reason that they are good at using the dualistic consciousness, so this was simply an excuse for getting American soldiers to give their lives. It was getting America built up to a point where it was starting to use its armed forces to extend power beyond American borders, something the constitution does not actually allow for. The reality here is that the fallen beings have used communism as an excuse for putting America in the mindset that the American people are willing to accept that their sons primarily, now also daughters, go abroad and give their lives for a seemingly just cause.

Now, I know you can argue that communism, the Soviet Union especially, was a real threat to the freedom of the rest of the world. It is reasonable to say that there was a point where the fallen beings had created these two systems, communism and capitalism, and they did not know which of the two would win dominion over the planet. They did not care because either way they would have been in control. For them it was simply a matter of creating the two systems, pitting them against each other and then saying: “Which one is going to win?” I know that many Americans will say: “But certainly, communism was the worst possible system” and why do they say this? Because they have the strong freedom flame. I very well understand this. I am in no way criticizing this or putting it down. I am simply pointing out the mechanism. Communism was a system that in a very obvious way repressed freedom. Therefore, those who have the freedom flame say: “It was certainly better that communism didn’t take over the world and therefore it was necessary that America fought communism, to prevent them from taking over the world.”

We have given teachings, Jesus has given some very, very profound teachings, on the fact that there can be times where there is such an unbalanced condition in the world that even something that is clearly unbalanced can still help bring the world forward. Yes, there was a time where it was the lesser of two evils that communism did not take over the world. What Americans fail to realize, and what you can make the calls to help them see, is that the fact that communism collapsed does not mean that we are now in the clear and now we have freedom in America or throughout the world. What Americans need to see – and they need to use their freedom flame to see this – is that capitalism is not a system that gives freedom to the people. It just takes that freedom away in a more subtle, hidden way than did communism.

Capitalism also takes away freedom

It is critically important that Americans begin to see this because otherwise they will not be able to shed the yoke that the power elite has brought upon this nation. Therefore, it is also necessary to make the calls for the exposure of the very fact that America’s armed forces – America’s soldiers – have in many cases not fought for the cause of freedom, they have fought for the power elite, they have fought for the cause of the power elite. It is necessary to call for the exposure of all of these incidents where, either the armed forces in an overt way or the CIA or other secret forces in a covert way, have extended influence, tried to overthrow governments in other nations. This was not done for the cause of freedom, it was done for the cause of allowing these multinational corporations to extend their reach, to capture new markets, to put themselves in monopoly positions in those markets.

It is necessary to recognize that there are people in other nations who have criticized America precisely for this point. It is necessary to recognize that although they sometimes come from an unbalanced perspective and do not have the best interests of America at heart, there is a point to their criticism. It is by no means according to the Constitution nor is it according to the freedom flame that many Americans have, that American sons and daughters are shedding their blood to extend the reach of multinational corporations that have no loyalty to America or to the American people. It is simply an outrage that has been going on for far too long. Once again, those inside the system know very well what is going on but nobody is talking, and that is why there is this cloud of silence again, this cloud of darkness, this energy veil that prevents the American people from reaching that awareness where they can say: “This is unacceptable and we will no longer stand for it.”

Do you see what I am saying here? The fallen beings have taken the primary characteristics of the American people – the freedom flame – they have created the illusion that it is America’s role in the world to spread, as a former president said, “freedom and democracy.” They have used Americans’ freedom flame to get Americans to be willing to sacrifice their lives or the lives of their children for this cause, but it is not the cause of freedom and democracy and certainly not in all cases. It is in many cases the cause of the power elite wanting to extend their power, wanting to spread the capitalist system, which is a system set up only by the elite, for the elite.

Again, I look for you to make the calls, to educate yourselves and to hold the vision. Again, I am not telling you this – I know it is a heavy topic – but I am not telling you this to make you feel depressed or powerless or hopeless. I am telling you this because I know that by making the calls and raising your own consciousness, you can pull up the collective and work towards this shift where, again, it just becomes obvious to people that this has been going on and this cannot be allowed to go on.

In other words, it is, again, a matter of realizing that there is a huge gap between the public perception that has been created about America’s role in the world and what is actually going on in the hidden corridors of power. The people who are in those corridors of power have a completely different way of looking at it. They have a completely different agenda than what you see in the public facade. When Americans begin to see this gap, they will have that freedom flame that says: “This isn’t right, we will not accept it anymore” and therefore it is necessary to call for the exposure of this.

Why Americans do not demand better leadership

Listen to a recording of this dictation (subscribers only) 

Ascended Master Cyclopea through Kim Michaels, September 30, 2018. This dictation was given at a conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

I AM the Ascended Master Elohim Cyclopea. I come bearing gifts in the sense that I pledge that whatever invocations are created based on the dictations at this conference, I will multiply your calls by a considerable factor. Numbers do not really matter but you need to know that any call you give will be multiplied by me. I will do this multiplication specifically for the exposure of anything that is hidden in American society and that would not be acceptable to the American people. Therefore, my aim is to shatter this energy-veil that the fallen beings, the dark forces, the power-elite have put over America and which blinds not only the people but also the leaders so that these things can continue to go on decade after decade.

As we said with the movie industry and Washington, DC, the insiders know but very few people from the outside ever realize what is going on. Naturally, one of the consequences of this can be that more of the insiders begin to leak information, as you have already seen in several cases. You can see what an impact this has had. It has an impact that is not even seen because it goes into shifting certain people’s attitude and making them realize that they cannot get away with it. The sad fact is that at the current level of consciousness on earth there are many, many people who simply need to be faced with this reality check that they cannot continue to hide what they know is wrong. It is the only way they are going to reform their actions at their level of consciousness.

How the fallen beings use the concept of sin

Now, yesterday Master MORE talked a little about the attitude that Americans have to their government and their reluctance to stand up and demand a better government. I wish to expound upon this because there is a very, very subtle dynamic that has been created by the fallen beings over a very long time. It goes much further back than even recorded history. In order to explain it, I want to start by referring to the Catholic church, who (with the help of St. Augustine who was working with fallen beings in the identity realm) introduced the concept of original sin. This is a concept that has been introduced in previous ages as well.

When you consider the fact that many, many Americans look at America as a Christian nation and look upon themselves as Christians, you can begin to see that they are very, very deeply affected by this concept of original sin. It, of course, affects people in many ways.

What I am concerned about explaining here is how the fallen beings have used this to create this very, very subtle attitude in many people that because they see themselves as sinners and therefore not being perfect, they cannot really demand that their leaders should be perfect or should live up to a higher standard than they feel they themselves can live up to. This is a dynamic that is deliberately created by the fallen beings to prevent the people from challenging the power elite in embodiment. This is not something you will even pick up, hardly at all, in written sources, books or the press.

You will hardly ever hear it in the public discourse because it is something that takes place in the minds of individuals. For many people, it even happens at subconscious levels or at barely conscious levels. They have been brought up with this idea that they are sinners. Without being aware of it, they have been programmed to think that whenever they see something that their leaders are doing that is not right, they are not allowed to speak out and demand a higher standard from their leaders because they themselves are not perfect. “I’m a sinner, so what right do I have to demand something from the politicians in Washington?”

It is this very subtle attitude that in order to criticize (and I mean this in a neutral way), in order to point out the flaws of what the fallen beings are doing, you should first be perfect because if you are not and you stand up publicly, you will be attacked. You can see this (as it happens in political circles) how, if somebody blows the whistle, what is the media and what are those affected going to do?

They are going to say: “Let’s turn this man’s life over and find anything we can use to blame him and discredit him. Because, if we can discredit him personally, then we have automatically (or at least they think) discredited what he is saying.” How many times do you see this going on in the American media? The subtle effect of this in people’s minds is that they are very reluctant to stand up and demand a better leadership. This is a consciousness that probably has more far-ranging effects than any other single characteristic that you can point out.

The pacifying mechanism

It is amazing as you look at it from my perspective. I can see, of course, from my perspective what you cannot see in the physical. I see how everything, of course, starts in the three higher realms: the identity, mental and emotional. I see how there is a physical event that takes place. It can be anything that goes on in politics that is not right. Something is exposed or somebody makes a decision that most people do not agree with and you see how there is a certain emotional reaction to this. This goes up into people’s mental bodies and then it goes up into their identity bodies, and in their identity bodies there is a reaction.

Now, let us imagine that people have seen something that is not right and they are not necessarily angry about it, they are determined, clear in their minds, that this is not right and this should not be going on. This creates an emotional reaction, goes up into the mental body and then into the identity. In the identity they have a mechanism, because they identify themselves as sinners and as basically unworthy because they are not perfect in the eyes of God.

Part of this whole consciousness is, of course, the idea of the angry judgmental God that requires you to be perfect before you can go to heaven. In the identity body it is almost like this impetus that comes up is reversed where the people say: “But wait a minute, I know this isn’t right but since I am a sinner and I’m not perfect either, what right do I have to demand that these people change. What right do I have to speak out?”

Now, the impulse goes back down through the mental, into the emotional and at the conscious level (without necessarily realizing what has happened), people just kind of shrug their shoulders, resign and say: “Oh well! Maybe I just shouldn’t even say anything about this.”

Of course, even though America is a Christian nation, not all Americans are Christians. The majority of them are and certainly the majority of them are brought up in a Christian tradition. A large majority of Americans have this very mechanism that prevents them from having that righteous indignation which is more of a clarity, a determination, to stand up and say: “This is not acceptable to us. No more of this, we have had enough of this form of leadership.” That is why Americans cannot come together in a large enough group to demand changes even though there is a vast majority in America who clearly want certain changes. They are clearly experiencing that the Congress is not enacting these changes, the President is not enacting these changes. They are dissatisfied with that situation but they cannot come together precisely because so many of them feel that: “Who am I to speak out, who am I to tell the politicians what to do, I’m just a sinner.” Again, for most of them it is not even conscious, it has been programmed into them, not only since childhood in this embodiment but in many previous embodiments where they have also embodied in a Christian culture. It is not my intent to say that this is the only problem that the Catholic church has created, but it is certainly one of the most severe problems that the Catholic church has created.

You all know, of course, that Jesus never talked about original sin. You must ask yourself: Why have not at least the Lutheran, protestant churches gone back and said: “This was clearly put in by the Catholic church, let us take it out.” Well, they have not, my beloved, because many of the leaders of those churches are either blinded by this heavy cloud of the sinner consciousness or their minds are taken over by fallen beings in the mental or identity realm who want people to feel like sinners because that allows them to control the people.

The power elite and the abuse of the people

Do you realize how efficient of a control mechanism this is? There is no need for physical control here, people are controlling themselves. It allows the power elite in embodiment and it allows the fallen beings in higher realms to continue, not only to control the people but to continue to abuse the people.

What Saint Germain talked about (about the financial elite), this is a form of abuse. Let us not mince words about this. Taking the wealth from the people is abuse, but they get away with it time and time again because the people cannot reach that point of determination to speak out and demand better leadership.

You see, my beloved, it is necessary to make the calls that Americans are awakened to this dynamic and they are awakened to the realization that if America is to function as it was intended to function by the Constitution, by the Founding Fathers, by Saint Germain, then they have to accept that they have a right to demand that their leaders live up to a certain (I know “standard” is a difficult word to use but for practical purposes let us use it here), a certain standard of integrity and honesty and willingness to do what is in the best interest of the people rather than the best interest of the elite. These are not unreasonable demands by the American people. They are natural demands given what America has the potential to be. It is not unreasonable that the American people look at the potential for what America could be, look at what it is today and identify that there is a gap, a very large gap.

Freeing America from the slavery of capitalism

Listen to a recording of this dictation (subscribers only) 

Ascended Master Saint Germain through Kim Michaels, September 29, 2018. This dictation was given at a conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

I AM the Ascended Master Saint Germain, and I thank you for your patience, for your willingness to listen to me so many times, instead of following that human tendency of wanting something different. You will indeed get something different every time because the topic is, of course, different.

What I wish to do here is to build upon the concept of this compulsive desire for winning that you see in the American national psyche. One outcome of this is that many Americans think that America won the Cold War because the Soviet Union was dissolved and communism had to retreat and the people were freed from the communist yoke. This is, of course, correct in the sense that people in the former Soviet Union or those in the Warsaw Pact have been freed from the yoke of communism, at least to a larger or smaller extent, smaller in Russia than in most of the other former Soviet Republics or Warsaw countries.

Have Americans been freed from capitalism?

However, before Americans become too overexcited about having won the Cold War, we might look the other way and ask ourselves: “Have Americans been freed from capitalism?” The fact of the matter is that capitalism and communism formed the archetypal example of a dualistic polarity. Totally created by the fallen beings, totally set up to be in a never-ending, irresolvable, irreconcilable struggle and conflict. Of course, you can say the struggle ended in the sense that communism collapsed but has it ended in the sense that has the other dualistic polarity ended, has capitalism ended? There are, of course, many Americans who would say: “No, and we don’t want capitalism to end because capitalism is the greatest economic system and it is a free economy of free enterprise.” It is one of the greatest illusions in America that people think a capitalist economy is the same as free enterprise. There is nothing free about a capitalist economy—except that the power elite have total freedom to exploit the people. Of course, the freedom to exploit is not really a freedom, at least not a freedom that is found in the Seventh Ray of Freedom and the vision of Saint Germain.

Capitalism is a form of slavery

A great breakthrough would be to radiate into the collective consciousness this awareness that capitalism has only one purpose, and that is to enslave the people under a small power elite. We can look to the communist system and see that it was a system controlled by a small party elite who had the physical means to control the people. This was brought about by an unrestricted willingness to kill those who opposed the system. In the Soviet Union, this was initiated by Stalin who was willing to kill any amount of people that either opposed him or whom he thought opposed him. In China you saw the “great” Chairman Mao being likewise willing to kill any number of Chinese that he thought opposed him.

We see that this is one way that the fallen beings like to set themselves up in control of the people. By creating the physical control, the physical power apparatus whereby they can kill anyone who opposes the system and therefore forces people to go into this state where they basically have a choice: “Do I want to stay in embodiment or don’t I?” If I do, I must submit to the system because if I object, I will instantly be killed and possibly my entire family will be killed as well. There is no blame here that so many people submitted to this system. There was not really that much else they could do unless they wanted to go out of embodiment.

It is, of course, relatively easy to see for many Americans that there was a power elite, that there were a certain type of beings who had this total insensitivity to life. What is much harder for Americans to see – but what needs to be seen – is that the capitalist system is not free, it is not a free economy. It is a system created by another group of fallen beings who also have the desire to control but who have a different approach as to how they accomplish this. These fallen beings are, one might say, more subtle, more clever in a way than the fallen beings who created the Soviet Union. They have realized that as the collective consciousness has been raised, there has come a point where people have become aware of certain of the more obvious forms of suppression and the people have become willing to revolt against this.

They, of course, saw that this was what actually led to the birth of the American nation, as out-pictured in the saying of Thomas Paine: “Give me liberty or give me death!” You see that in the Soviet system where they were totally willing to kill, it attracted people who wanted to stay in embodiment and did not want to be killed. In America you have seen a certain amount of people who have the attitude: “Give me liberty or give me death,” and the fallen beings saw that it would be impossible (or at least very, very difficult) to control America in the same overt way through physical means as it was done in the Soviet Union. This did not mean they gave up. They simply said: “Well how can we, then, control people, how can we gain control of the American nation?”

How the elite perverts freedom

What the fallen beings will always do is they will seek to take something that is given for the benefit of the people and make use of it. What can they do in America? Well, they can take the concept of freedom and make full use of it so that they can do absolutely anything they want, because they have set themselves up as an untouchable elite that is not even seen by the people, or at least not seen for what they are. You might say that the fallen beings who controlled the Soviet Union were also, in a sense, a hidden elite. Even though people knew there was a party elite who was running the system, they were still not really seen for who they were. They exercised control by restricting the freedom of the people in a very obvious manner. At the same time, they had to pay a price for that in the sense that they themselves also had to, at least to some degree, follow the system.

It is clear, for example, that even though the party elite could take to themselves certain privileges, there was a limit to what they could take. For example, they might have a bigger apartment than most of the people in the nation but it was not a mansion. They might have a dacha in the country, a summer house in the country,  but it was not a palace because there simply was not the money in the economy to support that. What you saw in the Soviet Union was, in a sense, that it attracted a certain kind of fallen beings who were more concerned about having power than about having money or privileges. They were more concerned about restricting the freedom of the people and less concerned about being able to do anything they wanted.

What America attracted was another group of fallen beings, who do not need or do not want that absolute physical power and control. They want a more hidden form of power, they want money but they first of all want the freedom to do anything they want, regardless of the consequences that it has for the people.

They were driven by this desire to set themselves up as people who have so much money that they could use this to gain privileges that were far, far beyond the population. At the same time, they were untouchable because they were not elected. Even though it was publicly known that they had lots of money, it was not really understood how much money they had, how they were able to use this to influence the political process and how they could do whatever they wanted personally with that money.

You simply see that with communism, it is obvious for most Americans that this was a repressive system. Capitalism is simply another form of oppression where the people are oppressed by a small elite. Most Americans have not yet awakened to see this but they certainly can, especially when they are supported by your calls.

It is quite possible to have another paradigm shift where Americans wake up and suddenly see that it is obvious that there is a power elite running America behind the scenes and that we cannot allow this to go on. What you see is that the fallen beings in America said: “We have a country here who gives a certain amount of personal freedom but also economic freedom. So let’s make use of this economic freedom to accumulate wealth and use that wealth to exert influence on the nation and use that wealth for our own gratification.” In other words, they were determined to take the freedom of opportunity that was given in the early days of America and use it for their own gratification.

American businesses are inhumane

Therefore, if you apply the psychological models that have been created, you have to say that these people were the archetype of a narcissist. They did not care whatsoever about the consequences of their actions for other people, they were willing to do anything for their own gratification and they did anything. They used the economic freedom to seek to create monopolies, to destroy other businesses, to create unfair competition. This is really the hallmark of a capitalist economy, it is dog-eat-dog. It is everyone against everyone else. It is do whatever it takes to get ahead, no matter what consequences this has for other people.

This, then, leads to a consideration of the state of American business, and especially the large corporations who are not even truly American corporations because they have now gone multinational and therefore are not truly American businesses any more. You cannot even say that they have any loyalty to America whatsoever or any dedication to preserving the American way of life. What was created during the 1800s by these early industrialists (the financiers and those who attempted to create monopoly capitalism) was that they set American businesses on this track where business has become a fiercely competitive sport, where the only way to get ahead is to be more ruthless than the competition.

This has, of course, created a system that is so typical for the fallen beings (and that you see in the feudal systems of Europe) where the elite has absolutely no concern for how their actions affect the people. They do not care about the people whatsoever, they just look at them as tools, as a kind of property that can be exploited to an almost ultimate degree. It needs to be stated that American business, the American business climate and especially the large corporations are completely and utterly inhumane.

It is based on a complete denial of the essential humanity of the American people. They are seen only as worker bees to be exploited until they have worked themselves to death and then be discarded. There is absolutely no way to express this in diplomatic terms. It is a completely inhumane system and you see so many people who have been sucked into this system, who have been bought off with a bit larger salary than those other people, who have then spent 60-80 hours a week for 30 or 40 years until they are burned out and do not even know what to do with themselves after they retire. So many of them die within a year or two after retirement simply because they were worked to death in an inhumane system that did not care whatsoever about people but only cared about profit that then can be used to exert power and to buy privilege.

Total transparency in government

Listen to a recording of this dictation (subscribers only) 

Ascended Master MORE through Kim Michaels, September 29, 2018. This dictation was given at a conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

As the messenger said before you went to break: “At a quarter to four, come back for more” so here I am, the Ascended Master MORE. I wish to build on what Saint Germain has given you and take it in a slightly different direction, not because I am in competition with Saint Germain but because I am one with Saint Germain. As all ascended masters working with the earth are one with Saint Germain and his goal for manifesting the Golden Age on earth and in America as well.

There is a sentence that has always been a guiding light, not only for America but for democracy in general. It is that there is a government “with the consent of the governed.” In other words, the people who are being governed are in agreement with the government and how it functions. This also means that in a truly democratic nation, whether a republic or another form of democracy, a government only has legitimacy when it has the consent of the governed.

My beloved, what does it take for a government to have the consent of the governed? Is it enough that every four years the governed go to a little booth and put a mark on a piece of paper and vote in representatives? Then, in those four years, the representatives can do whatever they want and, come four years, they will either be voted back in or they will be voted out. Is that the consent of the governed? Surely, you all realize it is not!

So what does it take to have a government that has the consent of the governed? Well my beloved, in order to describe this, I will use a word but I will explain a few things before I use the word because this word is what scares the power elite more than any other word on earth. Nothing scares the fallen beings or the power elite, the hidden power elite that attempts to run any country, more than this word that I will use now. What is the word? “Transparency.”

How can a government have legitimacy unless it has the consent of the governed? How can it have the consent of the governed unless those governed know what is going on in government? Thus, for there truly to be the consent of the governed, there must be total, absolute, undiluted, unrestricted transparency in the government.

A society where nothing is hidden

I can assure you that in the Golden Age there will be, at some point, total transparency in all levels of government. There will, in fact, be total transparency in all levels of society. The reason for this is, of course, that there will come a point where Saint Germain will release the technology to read the Akashic records. Those of you who are ascended master students know that there is a certain level of energy, a certain level of vibration, that serves as a recording device. You can consider that it is as if there were a billion camcorders or video cameras spread throughout the earth and they are constantly recording everything that is going on. What they are recording is being stored on a massive server complex somewhere. I am just using the images you have, I am not implying that the Akashic records work that way.

Imagine that everything that happens in the hidden corridors of power, everything that is said, how decisions are made, how deals are made, all of this is recorded in these Akashic records. In that point in the future when Saint Germain determines the time is right, the technology will be released whereby you can go into the Akashic records, go back to a certain date, a certain situation and play back what happened in that location, almost as if you were the proverbial fly on the wall.

Who killed JFK? Oh let us go in and play back what actually happened. I am not really wanting to tell you that information right now, even though it is awfully tempting. [Pause] Well, it was the power elite, of course.

Just imagine what the release of this technology will do, what ramifications, what reverberations it will have throughout society when it begins to dawn on people that they cannot hide anything anymore. Now, go down to the present situation and see how many things are hidden all over the planet. Crime! Could there really be crime on earth if the criminals would always be caught? Corruption! Could there be corruption if they would always be caught in the act or at least would be caught after the act? Now apply this to the political process of the United States, based on what Saint Germain said. There is a vast distance, a vast gap, between the public appearance of the political apparatus and what is actually going on in the corridors of power. Imagine you could remove that gap and imagine what that would do?

Now my beloved, in a sense you could say that if the American government functioned the way it was meant to function, it should not matter because then there would not be the gap. Because there would be such integrity among those who are part of the government apparatus that they would never naturally do anything that could not stand the light of day.

Those who think they can get away with anything

We are not in the ideal situation, and as Saint Germain said: A cloud has enveloped Washington, D.C. that makes the people in government, both the elected representatives and those in the bureaucracy, those in the lobbying groups, those in the power elite groups and the networks and the “old boys” networks;” they all think, they all take for granted, that they can do these things and keep them hidden. In other words, they think they can do what they know the people would not accept and get away with it.

It is exactly like Harvey Weinstein who thought he could continue to abuse women and if someone spoke up, he could just pull out his checkbook and buy their silence. These power brokers think they can do the same. They think they have gotten away with it for so long that they can continue to get away with it. There will, as I said, come a day where the access to the Akashic records will be released. But we do not have to wait for that day because we have ascended master students who can make the calls for the exposure of these hidden dealings.

You can make the calls for the shattering of that energy veil that is clouding the minds of those in Washington, but that is also preventing those from the outside, those who are not part of the inner circle, from seeing and then exposing what is going on. You will see, if you read the book or watch the movie about the Watergate scandal, how two journalists kept digging and digging and how there eventually was someone who gave them more and more information, some insider who decided to expose what was going on.

You can make the calls for this to happen in many fields. You can make the calls that there will be a raising of the collective consciousness where suddenly it is as if the scales fall from people’s eyes and they look around and say: “But isn’t it obvious that there should be transparency in government? How can we have a democratic nation if we don’t have transparency? How can we give our consent to those who govern us if we don’t know what they do and say in the corridors of power? Why have we never thought about this before? Isn’t it obvious?”

When you make these calls, things will begin to be exposed. Look at what happened in Korea when the students started making the calls. It is not hopeless, it is not so that there is nothing you can do. That my beloved, is another cloud that envelops America in its entirety. It has pacified the people where they think, as the saying goes: “You can’t fight city hall,” and, of course, much less can you fight Congress.

Truly, we are very optimistic because the fallen beings, the power elite, they think they can get away with what they have gotten away with for so long. We know that they cannot even fathom the power of ascended master students making the calls for the exposure of these hidden wheelings and dealings.

The situation is not hopeless

Truly, things are not really as hopeless as you might think they are. I encourage you who are our students to look at yourselves and see if you have allowed yourself to be affected by this cloud of hopelessness, this cloud of despair, this cloud of unknowing that has enveloped the American people. Then, free yourself from it. Tune in to our vibration, whichever master you are close to, tune in to the mind of Saint Germain and realize that we are optimists. Now, I know very well, my beloved, that this does not say that much because the earth is a rather low planet. I can assure you that those ascended masters who have vowed to stay with earth have done so because we are optimists or we would not be here. Nevertheless, we are still optimistic because we see the hidden potential of how it is possible to awaken the American people and to make them stand up.

Quite frankly, my beloved, imagine that there was a million-man march in Washington demanding transparency in government. Who could object to this? You see my beloved, one way to outmaneuver the fallen beings is to put them in a situation, as they are so good at doing to you, where they have really no way out. Because if you demand transparency in government, who in the government can oppose this without exposing that they are not committed to democratic principles and the constitution?

I know very well what they will attempt to hide behind  national security. “I could tell you but then I’d have to kill you.” Nevertheless, my beloved, we may allow certain things to remain hidden for the sake of national security (as artificial of a concept as that it is, or at least has become). Yet, certainly, you cannot say that the old boy’s network, who are making wheeling’s and dealings in the Senate or the House, that this is covered by national security, at least when it has nothing to do with military secrets or any such things. Surely, there will be things that cannot be pushed under the rug upon which it says “national security.”

This can be a real awakening, a galvanizing of people, where they realize that: “We actually have a right to demand transparency.” This can have many ramifications. My beloved, Saint Germain was talking about the gauntlet of running for office. It is, of course, true that people should not have to be selected through such an aggressive process. Nevertheless, it has also had the effect of making people realize that if you have skeletons in the closet, it may not be the best idea to run for public office in the current situation. As it has selected certain people (of the balanced people) who have withdrawn from the process, there are also some very corrupt people who have decided to withdraw from the process because they were afraid that certain things would be exposed in their past that they did not really want exposed.

When you make the calls, then you can have a situation where this will be reinforced so that those who are corrupt will not dare to run for office, those who are the compromisers will not dare to run for office. You can get into a situation where those who have something to hide cannot run. Only those who have nothing to hide can run. Who are those who have nothing to hide? Those who are honest, those who have integrity.

Winning the political game in the Golden Age 

Listen to a recording of this dictation (subscribers only) 

Ascended Master Saint Germain through Kim Michaels, September 29, 2018. This dictation was given at a conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

I AM the Ascended Master Saint Germain. I desire you to understand that when we talk about aligning America with the mind of Saint Germain, and when we point out certain conditions that have to change, it does not mean that I am imposing conditions upon whether or not I will share my ideas for manifesting a Golden Age in America. I have no conditions. I am perfectly willing to release these ideas to anyone who is able to receive them. In other words, I am not saying that before I will release my ideas to America, America has to live up to certain conditions. I am radiating those ideas constantly, so the real question is not whether the ideas are released but whether people can receive them.

What we are talking about is: What will it take for at least some Americans to be able to receive these ideas? What will it take for a critical mass of Americans to be able to accept these ideas so that they can actually be manifest in the nation instead of remaining ideas only? We are not in any way criticizing or condemning America or the American people. We are simply making clear to you what it will take for you to receive the ideas that will set you free from the limitations and suffering you see in this nation right now.

Winning over the obsession with winning

The next thing I want to bring up here is that if America is to become aligned with the mind of Saint Germain, America needs to, and Americans need to, overcome the obsession with winning. America as a nation, in the national psyche, has an obsession with winning. How many nations on earth have in their collective consciousness the concept that they are the greatest nation on earth? But America has it. Look at American sports, look at how competitive Americans are, look at how they always want to win. For example, not so long ago when there was a world soccer championship and a very small nation called Croatia beat some of the biggest soccer nations in the world, they made it to the finals. They did not win the final game but they did not think they had lost the world championship. They thought they had won second place in the entire world, but if Americans had been in that position: “Oh, that team, they were so bad, they lost, they didn’t become world champions.”

This is the essence of that obsession with winning: It is win or lose, winners take all. You see it even in the political process, you see it in people’s mindset. You see that America is obsessed with being the best, always being ahead, and this creates a strange dichotomy in the American psyche. On one hand, Americans are always comparing themselves to other nations but they are only doing this to show how America is better than other nations. They are not comparing themselves to other nations and saying: “Do these nations have something we could learn from?” Again, I am talking in general terms, not about everyone, but there is that tendency to look at how Americans can exceed and get ahead of other nations, not being so willing to look at whether there are other nations that are ahead in certain areas.

The obsession with not losing

You see this, for example, in the history of America. There is the concept that America won the Second World War, America won the Cold War, the Gulf war, the war in Iraq. “Yeah, there was that hiccup with the Vietnam War. We didn’t quite win that war but you know, we won so many other wars, it doesn’t really matter.”

If you go back and look at this honestly, you will see what a trauma it was for America after the Vietnam War. America could not deal with this, and why was it? Because America is so obsessed with winning that it cannot face not winning. It cannot deal with not winning in a neutral, objective way. America does not have the ability to say: “We made a mistake. Let’s learn from it and move on.” If you made a mistake, not only did you not win, but you actually lost. It is either you win and you are the good guy and you are right, or you lose and you are absolutely wrong. It is the all-or-nothing, the black-and-white thinking.

This, my beloved, is something that you who are ascended master students have already moved beyond, or at least you can very quickly move beyond it. You can make the calls because I assure you that there are many Americans who are very, very close to also breaking through and realizing this entire game of always wanting to be the winner and always wanting to interpret any event as if America came out on top. “We didn’t really make a mistake because, after all, we are the greatest nation on earth and we are the good guys. Even if we did go out to some other country and we did sort of create some situation that wasn’t really good, after all, we are Americans. We have to spread freedom and democracy around the world, that’s what we are here for.”

What this obsession with winning creates is an opposite polarity, the obsession with not losing. When you have an obsession with not losing, what you cannot do is say: “We made a mistake, let’s learn from it and then we move on.” You cannot acknowledge that you made a mistake.

The game of pretending in American politics

We have, of course, given many teachings on overcoming the sense that you made a mistake. There is no need to think in terms of right and wrong, mistakes or not mistakes. It is simply a matter of going into a neutral state of mind, looking at a situation and saying: “Was the outcome really what we wanted?” If it was not what you wanted, then you ask: “How can we then improve so we get what we want?” You see how this dynamic – the obsession with winning, the obsession with not losing – prevents people from going into that neutral state of mind.

Instead of thinking: “How could we improve things?” they go into this very contrived, artificial state of mind of pretending they did not actually lose: “Ah, maybe we didn’t win but we certainly didn’t lose because it wasn’t so bad after all.” Instead of just looking at a situation and saying: “We don’t want to repeat that. How do we avoid repeating it so we can do better the next time?” This state of consciousness permeates the collective psyche of America. It has many ramifications. You can see the ridiculousness of it in sports but now look at the political arena.

There may be some people in America who have not read the fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen where an emperor has invited a team of very, supposedly, advanced tailors to make a new dress for him for a major event. These tailors come in and pretend to be sewing this dress but they are not making a real dress. They are so good at pretending that everybody, from the emperor to all of the people in his court, actually see this dress. The emperor appears before the people in his new dress and nobody will come out and say that they do not see it until a little boy cries out: “But the emperor has nothing on!”

This is what needs to happen in the political arena of America. What you have right now is a political situation where the senators, the representatives in the House and all other levels of American politics have used this obsession with winning, the obsession with not losing, to create a situation where the politicians are not doing the job that they were charged to do by the U.S. Constitution. They are not doing the job that the American people elected them to do. But everybody is pretending that they are doing their jobs. They are trying to pretend that they are doing the right thing, that they could not be doing anything else or that there are certain problems that just cannot be solved but it is not their fault. Nobody wants to come out and say: “The emperor has nothing on!”

Washington, D.C., is just one big game of pretending to look out for the interests of the American people. In reality, as a whole (again, individual differences but as a whole) Congress, the President, the Supreme Court, are not looking out for the interests of the American people. They are looking out for the interests of a small power elite. That is the naked reality of politics in America.

Very few people dare to come out and say it because in order to say it, you have to free yourself from the mentality of wanting to win, not wanting to lose, therefore not wanting to be neutral and simply say: “Are the politicians doing their job? Are they taking care of what is in the best interests of the people of America?” If they are not, it is not a matter of saying: “Oh, they’re wrong, they’re so bad, they’re this, they’re that.” The question is: “How can we move forward? How can we do better? How can we avoid repeating a situation that we realize isn’t what we really want?”

What does it mean to be an American?

Listen to a recording of this dictation (subscribers only) 

Ascended Master Saint Germain through Kim Michaels, September 29, 2018. This dictation was given at a conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

I AM the Ascended Master Saint Germain, and I too am freedom. Now, I wish to build on what I gave you yesterday and what Mother Mary and Jesus have given you and talk about the concept of the United Peoples of America. How can we unite the peoples of America? Well, as I said, we need to change the public discourse so that instead of being antagonistic, it becomes open-ended and seeking for a higher solution, a higher understanding. Naturally, when you have a polarized debate, the effect of this is that it seems like there are only two possible solutions to any issue. Not only is this dualistic but it is not difficult for many Americans to realize that this is always a manipulated debate.

Freedom from the power elite

Whenever there is an issue where there seems to be only two options, you can be sure that the debate has been manipulated by the power elite. As Americans, you are dedicated to freedom and what does freedom mean—freedom from what? Why did I sponsor America? What was the vision of the Founding Fathers? Why did so many people leave their lives in Europe and other nations and come to this country with an uncertain future ahead of them? It was because they wanted freedom from the power elite. That, my beloved, is the central theme in the creation of America. If you go back to Europe at the time when America was created, you will see that the people were very heavily suppressed and controlled by a small elite, the kings and the noblemen.

Those of you who know about my history, will know that I attempted to work with the kings in order to create a more united, a unified state of Europe. I wanted to create a “United Peoples of Europe” in order to not only take Europe and the world beyond the warfare you had seen in the Middle Ages, but I was also attempting to avoid the first and the second world war. This, of course, did not happen because the power elite was not willing to work on unity because they wanted to have their power, they wanted to set themselves up as being in control. If you were to create a United Peoples or a United States of Europe, then the kings of different countries would feel that they were losing their power as the supreme regent of that country. Naturally, my vision for the United States of Europe was similar to the United States of America where the president was not a dictator and where there were checks and balances that could hopefully prevent the power elite from taking over, as they had always done before.

Dethroning the power elite in America

Now naturally, you can look at America and see that even though there are checks and balances, the power elite has still managed to take over and take control of America. Thus, in order to unite the people of America, they need to understand (and you need to make the calls for this to be radiated into the collective consciousness so that more people become consciously aware of it) that one of the main purposes for the creation of America is precisely to give people freedom from the power elite. Therefore, the people need to be willing to look at what it is that the power elite does in order to control them.

As I said yesterday, one of the primary tools used by the power elite is to create this very polarized public discourse because people cannot talk to each other as human beings and therefore they cannot see what they have in common. If you, again, look at the history of the creation of America, you can see that one of the major purposes for creating America was to bring people together from many different backgrounds. Again, you look at Europe at the time and you see that Europe was divided into separate nations that had often been at war with each other. They were very identified with their national identity. It was very difficult for the Germans and the Frenchmen to get along, and the British as well. You had this very antagonistic situation because people were so identified with their national identity.

What did we create with America? We created a new nation that was in the beginning a blank slate. It was open country, there was nothing there. People were allowed to come from many different backgrounds, many different nations, and when they came here, they were given the opportunity to be free of their old identity, to start anew and say: “Who do I really want to be, what kind of a life do I want to live here in this open space?”

My vision and my highest hope for America was that people would be able to let go of their old animosities, the old consciousness. They would be able to come together in this new physical space, see beyond the old divisions and discover the basic humanity in themselves and in each other so that they could become the United Peoples of America. This was my vision and my highest hope. Naturally, I was realistic in realizing that it would take some time before this could possibly manifest because I was very well aware that birds of a feather flock together. Therefore, people from different nations and backgrounds (partly because they spoke different languages) would tend to congregate together in certain areas. In many cases, they would build on what they had taken with them from the old world instead of freeing themselves from it and adopting something new.

Nevertheless, as you can see from history, it did not take many generations before most of the people who had settled America had adopted at least the English language so they could communicate with each other. They also very quickly started feeling more or less free from the old national identity from Europe so that they adopted an American national identity. You see that despite the fact that they may still have maintained some customs from their old nations, there was still a certain coming together in realizing that as Americans, we are here, were are in the same boat and it is better to cooperate than to work against each other.

What does it mean to be an American?

There have, of course, always been certain groups who clearly set themselves apart. There have been, of course, the difficulties with Native Americans, with African Americans, with Hispanic Americans and so forth and so on, but there has been a certain national identity that has been built. Now, what has happened in recent decades, as I said yesterday, is that people have become less focused on that common national identity and they have become more focused on their differences. It is as if the vision that we are Americans has faded into the background, whereas the divisions have become more important: Republicans, Democrats, Hispanics, this and that division, especially religions, Christians against all others, materialists and atheists against all religious people and so on. Because of what I said about the Internet that has been taken over by, quite frankly, the more hateful people, then this has taken over the public discourse.

How can we, then, change the public discourse? How can we get the more balanced, moderate people to enter the public discourse and make their mark on it? How can we help people move beyond these divisions? Well, we can only realistically do this by raising their sense of identity. This means that we need to talk about what it really means to be an American.

There is a tendency, of course, as Mother Mary said, that people in America take my sponsorship for granted. They think that if you are born in America and you have a birth certificate, then you are automatically an American and you are entitled to enjoy life in America. Well, let me tell you that from a spiritual perspective, a quite substantial number of the people who live in America and have a birth certificate and a passport and a driver’s license, I do not consider them Americans because you do not automatically become an American. Being an American is a choice. You must make a choice to adopt a certain state of identity, a certain outlook on life and it can only be a conscious, aware choice.

Now, in previous dispensations we have talked about America being a symbol for the “I AM Race.” Unfortunately, race is a very divisive word. That is why I do not want to use it. There is no I AM Race that you are born into because being an American is a choice. It is, of course, a play on words: the I AM, the I AM Presence. You are aware that you are more than a human being, you are more than these outer divisions. I have decided, as a way to help people with this, to release a new American Creed for what it means to be an American. So this is my gift for now.

The New American Creed

I AM aware.

I AM aware that I AM aware, meaning I have self-awareness.

I AM able to use my self-awareness to step outside of my current sense of identity, my current state of mind, look at myself and evaluate: “Is this my highest potential or is there more?”

I AM willing to step outside of my current sense of identity, my current state of mind and recognize that I do have a higher potential. There is more, there is more awareness that I could attain.

I AM dedicated to raising my awareness.

I AM dedicated to walking a gradual path where I raise my awareness from my current level to succeedingly higher levels of awareness.

I AM aware that as I grew up, a certain world view, a certain perspective on life, was put upon me.

I AM aware that I have the ability to raise my awareness and gain a broader world view, a broader perspective.

I AM dedicating myself to walking the path of raising my awareness of the world, my awareness of life.

I AM aware that as I grew up, a certain view of myself, a certain sense of identity, a certain sense of who I am and what I can and cannot do was put upon me.

I AM aware that I have the ability to raise my sense of identity, to raise my awareness that I can do much more than I was brought up to believe.

I AM dedicated to walking a gradual path of raising my awareness of who I really am and what is indeed possible for me in this world.

I AM aware that as I raise my awareness of who I am, my perspective on everything will change.

I AM aware that the way I look at life right now, the way I look at myself right now, is a product of my current level of awareness, my current level of consciousness.

I AM aware that at my current level, there are things that I cannot see, there are things that I cannot grasp, there are things that I cannot understand, there are things that I cannot experience.

I AM aware that as I raise my awareness, I will begin to see much more than I see now. I will begin to see things that I cannot grasp or understand at my present level.

I AM aware that my present view and understanding of life is inherently limited and that there is a higher understanding available that I will attain as I raise my level of consciousness.

I AM determined to shift my approach to life. I accept the fact that my present understanding and view of life is not the ultimate, is not some absolute truth; is not the only truth.

I AM willing to realize that whatever I know, understand or believe about life, is not the final view or understanding. It is indeed possible to raise myself to a higher level of consciousness where I see what I do not see now.

I AM willing to make the shift where I recognize that since I do not have a final understanding of life right now, I cannot be fully, and I will not be fully, identified with my beliefs, with my understanding, with my view of life. Therefore, I will not believe that there is nothing beyond it.

I AM willing to make the shift of realizing that if I do not have the final understanding of life, then it is not of epic importance that I force my current limited understanding upon other people or the nation.

I AM willing to acknowledge that I do not have the right to force a limited understanding upon others and that it will not serve my own interests or the interests of my nation to do so.

I AM aware that the current way I look at life is affected by many external influences that are seeking to manipulate me into a limited state of life, a limited state of consciousness and a state of conflict with other people.

I AM aware that there are certain influences in this world that are seeking to create a division in my own psyche in order to control me.

I AM aware that there are certain influences in this world that are seeking to create a division between myself and other people and that are seeking to create divisions between various groups of people in my nation in order to control all of us.

I AM aware that they can only control me when I have a limited view of life yet believe that it is the final, absolute or only truth.

I AM willing to leave this state of limited awareness behind me and rise to a higher level of awareness where I am constantly reaching for a higher understanding of any issue than what I have right now.

I AM willing to look at the public discourse in America and recognize that it has been taken over by the divisive forces who are seeking to divide Americans into opposing factions in order to control our nation and in order to control ourselves.

I AM aware that these forces are using the divide-and-conquer tactic. I AM aware that this tactic can work only as long as we have a limited awareness but believe it is the final awareness and therefore are not willing to look for a higher understanding.

I AM aware that if we look for a higher understanding, we will find it. I AM aware that when we seek a higher understanding, we will see something that we cannot see when we are so sure that the polarized viewpoints represent some ultimate truth.

I AM aware that the divisive forces will do anything they can to prevent us, to prevent a critical mass of Americans, from becoming aware of this process, this possibility of raising our awareness.

I AM willing to make the shift where I recognize that one of the greatest opportunities I have for raising my own awareness is to interact with other people and hear their perspective on life.

I AM willing to make the shift where I recognize that when I feel threatened by the viewpoints of other people and feel compelled to oppose them, it is because of a certain mechanism in my own psychology that makes me feel insecure.

I AM willing to make the shift where I recognize that this mechanism in my own psychology is deliberately put there by the divisive forces, who are seeking to make me a house divided against myself, so that they can control me from within and not even having to control me through physical means.

I AM aware that I have a desire to be free of these kind of divisive and controlling mechanisms in my own psyche.

I AM dedicating myself to walking a path of freeing myself from all such control mechanisms in my own psychology.

I AM aware that as I free myself from these control mechanisms, I will feel less and less threatened by the fact that other people are different from myself.

I AM aware that as more and more people do this, we will no longer be trapped in these polarized divisions where it seems like every issue has only two possible outcomes, only two possible options we can choose.

I AM aware that in any debate where there is a polarization between two viewpoints, where each claims to be absolutely right, then this is a debate that is artificially created by the divisive forces.

I AM willing to make the shift of dedicating myself to overcoming this division in myself and to overcoming the division between myself and other people.

I AM willing to make the shift of realizing that the differences of other people are not a threat to me, they are my opportunity to raise my awareness and broaden my perspective on life.

I AM willing to make the shift where I stop identifying myself with these outer divisions that have been artificially created.

I AM willing to make the shift of raising my awareness so that the outer sense of identity, based on my nationality, skin color, race, sex, ethnicity and so forth and so on, fall away and I discover a deeper sense of identity in myself.

I AM aware that when I raise my consciousness to see beyond these outer identity factors, I will discover my own essential humanity. I will realize that I am more than a human being. I am a universal being living in a human body.

I AM aware that as I raise my personal awareness to that level of identity, I will see that all other people are my brothers and sisters for they too have that essential humanity, they too are universal beings living in human bodies.

I AM aware that the divisive forces of this world will do anything to prevent us, a critical mass of us, from rising to that level of awareness.

I AM aware that nothing scares the divisive forces more than when many people rise to that level of awareness. For when we no longer identify ourselves based on the outer divisions, then the prince of this world has nothing in us whereby he can divide us in ourselves and against each other.

I AM dedicating myself to walking this path of raising my own awareness to the point where I do not feel threatened by other people being different from me.

I AM dedicating myself to attaining the level of awareness where I see the essential humanity in myself and I see the essential humanity in all people I meet.

I AM dedicating myself to seeing beyond the outer divisions, the outer characteristics of the people I meet until I not only see but connect in my heart to their essential humanity.

I AM dedicating myself to seeking first to connect to the essential humanity of other people, and only after I have made that connection do I look at their viewpoints.

I AM dedicating myself to seeking to understand other people based on having connected to their basic, essential humanity.

I AM dedicating myself to freeing myself of all influence of the divisive forces and therefore finding a new way to interact with my brothers and sisters. A way that is not based on division and conflict but on seeing, connecting to the essential humanity in us all.

I AM dedicating myself to shifting the public discourse and the public awareness of America away from all outer divisions and towards a recognition of that essential humanity.

I AM dedicating myself to spreading the awareness that the entire purpose for the creation of America is to create the United Peoples of America.

I AM dedicating myself to spreading the awareness that we can be the United Peoples of America only when we recognize and connect to the essential humanity in ourselves and each other.

I AM aware that this is the highest vision of what it means to be an American.

I AM dedicating myself to raising my awareness to the level where I can truly say: “I AM an American.”

From the United States of America to the United Peoples of America 

Listen to a recording of this dictation (subscribers only) 

Ascended Master Saint Germain through Kim Michaels, September 28, 2018. This dictation was given at a conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

I AM the Ascended Master Saint Germain. I know that you see me as the Master of Freedom, but is there not a certain joy in freedom? Thus, there is indeed joy on each of the Seven Rays and when you master a particular ray, you begin to feel that joy. Thus, I wish to convey to you the Flame of the Seventh Ray of Joy because I am indeed joyful about being able to be here with you, to interact with your auras and your chakras, to interact with your minds, to hopefully give you an experience that is beyond your normal level of awareness so that you have a frame of reference that you can bring with you as you go out to your place in America or abroad. You can bring that flame with you, and you can have it as a frame of reference for yourself, but you can also convey to others that there is tremendous joy in freedom and there is tremendous freedom in joy.

Americans take themselves too seriously

Thus, I do not wish to in any way be too serious about what it will take to align America with the mind of Saint Germain because you cannot align America or yourself with Saint Germain if you take life too seriously. Obviously, this means that one of the things, one of the changes, that could help align America with the mind of Saint Germain is that people stop taking themselves and this nation so seriously. Truly, when you look at America, there is a certain tendency that Americans take themselves very seriously, whereas you will see that other nations, like Canada, like the Scandinavian countries, have a culture and a tradition where they do not take themselves so seriously. They can make jokes about themselves, about their nation, that Americans sometimes look at and cannot understand why these other people think this is funny.

Of course, we realize that humor is an individual thing but, nevertheless, there is a tendency that Americans in general (not all, of course, but many) take themselves seriously, take their country seriously. You spoke earlier today about this whole consciousness that America has a certain destiny, and this, of course, makes people take themselves very seriously. You see so many of the Christians in this nation who take themselves very, very seriously and feel they have a role to play in making America conform to their vision.

Many Christians are anti-democratic

Building on what Jesus said earlier about the very fact that there is a separation of church and state in America, and that this is absolutely necessary for a functioning democracy, then we can say that those Christians who are attempting to interfere and affect the political process are out of alignment with the mind of Saint Germain, with the Founding Fathers of this nation, with the very principles upon which America is founded.

Truly, it is not wrong as such that religious people are engaged in the political aspect of life. I am not asking religious people to withdraw from society and live in a monastery. Of course, they are free to express their opinions as everyone else, but what I am pointing out is that some Christian churches have found their way to manipulate themselves into the political process and exert an influence that is completely based on their Christian worldview. This view is, as Jesus so eloquently explained, out of alignment with the mind of Christ, the mind of Jesus Christ. Naturally, this is also out of alignment with the mind of Saint Germain. Truly, there are very few Christians who do not take themselves and their faith too seriously.

Truly, we do not wish to start making jokes about Christianity but, nevertheless, it would be helpful if Christians could step back and be a little more humorous about their faith, about themselves, about their path. It would especially be helpful if those of you who are more aware would make the calls for the binding of these very powerful demons that have been created by the major Christian churches in America. These demons take over the minds of some of these pastors and leaders who feel it is their God-given right to interfere with the political process of America. They have been charged by God or Jesus to do this work and it is of epic importance that they impose their vision upon America’s leadership.

You have seen certain pastors in the past who have done this, even for several presidents where they have had some advisory position. Well, my beloved, a president of the United States does not need a religious advisor unless he has a board of religious advisors representing every faith in America. That I would have no problem with, but taking one particular minister from one particular church and making him the advisor to the president is against the principles of this nation. Thus, I look to you to make the calls for the binding and the judgment of these demons that are behind this phenomenon. Of course, this will enable us to take these demons away over time and this will shift the equation.

Why Saint Germain sponsors America

Now, beyond not taking yourselves so seriously, what would it take for Americans to align themselves with the mind of Saint Germain? Well, I would like to share with you some thoughts on what is the mind of Saint Germain, how is the mind of Saint Germain. First of all, let us do a reality check. It has been said in ascended master teachings that Saint Germain sponsors America. Now, as Mother Mary said, this is not a blank check, but what I wish to emphasize here is that Saint Germain may sponsor America but this does not mean that Saint Germain works only with America or Saint Germain looks to manifest the Golden Age only in America or first in America. I am the representative of freedom. I am the hierarch for the next 2,000 years of the Age of Aquarius, not just for America but for all people on earth. I work with people in all nations, as I am able, as they are able to tune in, and I have no particular favoritism towards any nation. I sponsored America not because I have any favoritism towards America but because I saw the potential and I am sponsoring that potential.

In a sense, you could say that in my mind I am not concerned about America as a nation, I am concerned about America as a process, as an experiment in: “How could we manifest a nation with a higher degree of freedom but at the same time manifesting the Golden Age ideals.” It has been said, and correctly so, that the Age of Aquarius is the Age of the Holy Spirit and the Age of Community, so community, come-ye-into-unity in these United States.

Taking America from human judgment to the discernment of Christ

Listen to a recording of this dictation (subscribers only) 

Ascended Master Jesus through Kim Michaels, September 28, 2018. This dictation was given at a conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

I AM the Ascended Master Jesus Christ, speaking through a human messenger. Now, imagine that this messenger was standing in front of a crowd made up of the leaders of the Christian churches in America. What would be their reaction to this opening line? They would be in instant denial. They would come up with a million excuses of why this could not be the real Jesus Christ. It has to be a false Christ, an impostor. It has to be the works of the devil and all of these other standard accusations that they come up with time and time again.

Can these people not look back at the stories of my life, described in the scriptures that they revere as the Word of God, can they not look at my life and see that what they are doing today is exactly what the leaders of the Jewish religion did to me when I did appear in the flesh and did not have to speak through a human messenger? Can they really not see this? They cannot or they will not, as the Scribes and the Pharisees and the leaders of the church back then could not and would not. Some cannot, I grant that, but too many will not and that I can do nothing about other than leave them behind. For how can I work with those who reject me when I respect free will? That is what I did to the leaders of the Jewish religion back then, and I went even further back then and allowed them to crucify me so that they would get the judgment of Christ.

Of course, I have on previous conferences pronounced the judgment of Christ upon the false leaders of Christianity. I trust that those of you who know, respect and recognize who I am will make the calls for these invocations to reinforce that judgment of Christ. It is not my purpose here to bring any kind of judgment upon the false leaders of Christianity because I am not really so concerned about the false leaders. I am more concerned about their blind followers because I desire them to see the reality of who I am, and who I was and what is and was my true message.

Why America is not a Christian nation

Why am I speaking at this early stage of this conference where the topic is aligning America with the mind of Saint Germain? Well, it is because one of the major blocks to aligning America with the mind of Saint Germain is precisely Christianity in America. Why is it a greater block in America than in many (for example) European nations or in Canada?

Well, it is because there are so many people in America, and certainly the Christian leaders among them, who say that America is a Christian nation. Well my beloved, have they not bothered to read their own constitution? Does not the constitution make it very clear that America is not a Christian nation? It is a secular nation because it is based on the separation of church and state. Do they not see that the Founding Fathers of America were very well aware of how things were and had been in Europe? For over a thousand years the Catholic church had a stranglehold on the nations of Europe and in many ways prevented their growth, and certainly was instrumental in preventing the freedom of the people. The Founding Fathers did not want to create a nation that could be dominated by one religion, like they had seen in Europe, and the Middle East with Islam. They wanted to create a nation where there was freedom of religion and freedom from religion if that was what people chose.

Certainly, they wanted a nation where the government had freedom from religion and was free to enact laws that were based on the desires and the will of the people and not what some religious authority imposed upon them—as had been done by the Popes throughout the Middle Ages. They saw the limitations of the system, they were very well aware of the need to separate church and state and this is the kind of country you are living in. Therefore, America, if it is true to its own constitution, can never be a Christian nation.

Would I or Saint Germain or any ascended master want America to be a Christian nation or be dominated by any other religion? Nay, we would not. What would be the reaction of the Christian leaders? “But didn’t Jesus tell us 2,000 years ago to go out into all the world and preach the gospel and turn all people into his disciples?” Ah, yes I did, but did I say to go out into all the world and make all people members of a Christian religion? I think not, at least that is not how I read the scriptures.

Why do you read them differently? Ah, there is something that they will not ponder, those who claim to be representatives of Jesus Christ in America today. Are they willing to ponder whether there is a difference between the way they see Christ and the way I am? Are they willing to look at the most crucial place in the scriptures where I said to Peter: “Get thee behind me Satan?” Are they willing to consider why I did this? Are they willing to recognize that Peter was superimposing a man-made image upon the Living Christ and I refused to conform to it? Are they willing to see that they are doing the exact same thing today, superimposing a man-made image upon the Living Christ and I still refuse to conform? That is why I am speaking through a human messenger who is willing to not put an image upon me but let me be who I am.

Do Christian leaders know the real Jesus?

There are, of course, many of these leaders of the Christian churches who will say: “No, we have contact with Jesus, we have Jesus speaking through us or speaking to us, so we know the real Jesus.” But do they? Are they willing to consider whether they know the real Jesus?

If they are, they need to look at the history of their own religion. They need to be willing to trace their roots back. Whether they are Christians or Anglicans or Calvinists or Lutherans or this or that, if you look at the history of the Christian religion, you cannot deny that all modern Christian churches are based on the foundation set by the Catholic church in the year 381. If you are, then, willing to look beyond that and go back to what I actually said, what I actually did, anyone who is willing to apply normal common sense, normal human intelligence, can see that there is a vast gap between what I preached, how I acted, and the image of me created by the Catholic church from the very beginning. I never claimed to be the only son of God. I did not deny that I am a son of God but you are all sons and daughters of God. I never set myself apart in a fundamental way and why is this? Because the essence of my message back then and now is that there is a path of initiation, a gradual path of initiation, that can lead any human being from the level of consciousness they are at right now, towards succeedingly higher stages of consciousness until they reach the state of consciousness that I demonstrated.

That is why I said: “Those who believe on me, (meaning truly those who are willing to internalize my teaching and apply it to themselves) ye can do the works that I did and even greater works.” You can do greater works because I started a trend of raising the consciousness. As the collective consciousness is raised, it becomes easier and easier for people to reach higher levels of consciousness, which is why it is, despite the efforts of all the false preachers and all the dark forces, easier to manifest Christhood today than it was 2,000 years ago. That is why many more people have the potential to manifest it and express it.

How the gradual path of initiation was obliterated

Now, what has this got to do with America? Well, if you look at the historical facts, you will see that a considerable number among the Founding Fathers of this nation were Freemasons. This does not mean that Saint Germain wants all people in America to become Freemasons. The fact of the matter is that this is something that these Christian leaders do not want to look at because they, of course, consider Freemasonry a false religion. What is the essence of Freemasonry?

It is a gradual path of initiation that leads to higher levels. Now, the specifics of how the Masons do this are not particularly high and not particularly relevant in this age. They were what could be given at a time when the Catholic church aggressively and violently suppressed all other forms of religion. The Freemasons started as a secret society because that was all that could be created at the time, and the real purpose was to present people with a gradual path of initiation.

The very historical fact, which is undeniable for anybody who is willing to look at it, is that the Catholic church suppressed any form of religion that diverged from itself. Then, go back and look at the formation of the Catholic church and look at what actually happened in that process. What happened was that the entire idea of a gradual path to higher levels of consciousness, leading to a state of Christ Consciousness, was completely and absolutely obliterated from the Catholic church.

This was done by elevating me to being so above other human beings that they could not follow my footsteps because I was the exception not the example. This is something that the Christian leaders and their followers are not willing to look at, but it is not difficult to see this if you stop denying historical facts. The Catholic church completely obliterated the path of initiation, a path of initiation that had existed for thousands of years before my appearance in the flesh, and that existed in many other movements at the time throughout the Middle East. With the formation of the Catholic church this path was suppressed violently throughout the regions where the Catholic church had influence and it was that way for almost a thousand years.

For that matter it is still that way in the mainstream, but as you see in America, more and more people are rejecting that form of religion, which says you need an outside authority in the form of a church and its priesthood here on earth. It also says you need an external Saviour in the form of this “Jesus graven image” they have created, who comes and saves you. Or you need the blood of Jesus to wash you clean from your sins. It is a total denial of the fact that your sin is a result of you making choices with your free will, and a total denial of the fact that no matter what choices you have ever made with your free will, you can come to make more aware choices and thereby free yourself from the consequences or the sin (or the karma or whatever you want to call it) of your previous choices. You can never make a choice from which you cannot free yourself by making a more aware choice.

Fallen beings in the churches of America

This is the very essence of free will, and it is exactly what the fallen beings and the dark forces have been attempting to deny and obliterate since they came to this planet. If you could see what I see from the ascended state, you would see that all of the major churches in America, and many of the smaller churches in America, are led by people who are either fallen beings in embodiment or who are well-meaning people whose minds have been completely taken over by demons in the emotional realm or by fallen beings in the mental or identity realm. If people could see this, if Christians in their churches could see what kind of leaders they have and what kind of non-material forces are behind those leaders, they would be shocked to the core of their beings and they would walk out of their churches, most of them instantly.

Why do you think that when I encountered the Scribes and Pharisees I called them “sons of the devil” and said that they would do the lusts of their father? Because they also were either fallen beings in embodiment or had their minds taken over by fallen beings in (or out of) embodiment. This, of course, is not something that I expect most Christians to accept but nevertheless, we intend for the dictations at this conference to be turned into a book and invocations to be made so that you can reinforce this and direct it into the collective consciousness. This can help those who are hypnotized by these false preachers to suddenly have a shift that makes them see what they cannot see now. You are your brother’s keepers in the sense that you have seen the limitations and the fallacy of mainstream Christianity. It is only natural that you, then, use that to at least make the calls for your brothers and sisters to be free, as you have become free. This is not meaning that you are in any way forcing them to accept what you see but you are giving them the choice, then allowing them to have the choice.

America is a cosmic experiment

Listen to a recording of this dictation (subscribers only) 

Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels, September 27, 2018. This dictation was given at a conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

I AM the ascended master that you know as Mother Mary, and it is my great joy and my great privilege to open this conference. Of course, when I say “open,” you have already opened the conference by opening up your hearts to share with each other. Some of you, my beloved, have the question in your mind: “But we haven’t given an invocation yet so how can we be ready for a dictation?” What is the purpose of giving an invocation? Is it not to release light? And have you not released light when you shared so freely of your sorrows, your trials, your joys, your experiences?

My beloved, we have given teachings now for a very long time, at least if you measure with just one lifetime, since we started this dispensation of progressive revelation, of messengers who could speak the Word. You can look at these teachings, as some of you have done. You can study them. You can seek to understand them, as many students have done—and many students have grown in understanding. Yet my beloved, what is it we truly want to give to you? Is it understanding? Well, we do want to give you understanding but we realize very well that understanding will only get you so far on the path. It is, as has been said so many times: You cannot solve a problem with the state of consciousness that created the problem, you cannot get out of the dualistic state of mind through the reasoning, analytical faculties of the mind.

When students first find the teachings of the ascended masters, they often do so because they have questions that were never answered by the previous religions or teachings they had been exposed to. They want to understand, they want to have that intellectual understanding of some aspect of life. There is nothing wrong with this, but this will only get you to a certain point.

You see this in the story of Jesus’ life where he encountered the scribes and the Pharisees who were so advanced in their intellectual understanding that they could not recognize the Living Christ when he stood before them. In fact, their sophisticated, intellectual, analytical reasoning blocked them from actually having the experience that was the highest potential of encountering the Living Christ. Namely, that they had an inner experience that there was something higher than their present level of consciousness.

How to tell other people about the path

What do we of the ascended masters really want to give to you? We want to give you that experience. Surely, many of you have had that experience while listening to a dictation or even reading it because you tuned in to our Beings, to our Presences. Do you not realize, my beloved, that when you talk about, as some of you did, reaching out to other people, telling other people about your path, you sometimes have a tendency to think that you need to give them understanding that they can grasp intellectually? But what is it you first of all need to give them? You need to give them an experience of your being, of your presence, of what you have internalized on the path, which means that you are at a higher level on the path than they are at. You are at a higher state of consciousness than they are at and if you can share that with them, then they will get something from you that they could never get if you tried to only give them the intellectual teaching.

Do you not realize that the session you had earlier, where you were so willing to share from the heart, this is the most powerful way to approach other people? To be willing to be open, to be willing to even be vulnerable, to be very honest and very direct about your own path: What you have learned, what you have experienced, what you have internalized. When they sense that you are genuine, many will be moved that would not be moved by the intellectual teaching. My beloved, some may still give you a negative reaction. This is where you have come to a point now on the path – and I include all of you who are here and all who have studied these teachings and been willing to open yourself to them – where you are ready to step up and say: “I’m not going to let those who are negative cause me to close myself off. I’m going to focus on those who are positive, who are open. I’m going to focus on those people that I can reach, those people I can help. I’m not going to be concerned about those I cannot help, I’m not going to even react to them.”

If you find that you do react to them, then you follow what the messenger explained. He looked in himself: “Why am I reacting to these negative people? What is it in me?” If you can come to the point of resolving that, you will feel that now you are free to be who you are, to share who you are. This will transform people more than anything else.

Being an open door for the masters

What is it we have trained the messenger to do? We say he is an open door and, yes, he is an open door for many teachings that you can grasp with the intellect, but he is also an open door that allows us to shine some measure of our Beings, our light, through him so that you can experience it. But how many people can this messenger meet in the rest of his lifetime? Certainly, not as many people as all of you can meet. How are we going to reach many people on earth if there is only one person who can be an open door for us sharing our Presences through them? Therefore, we are not looking for all of you to do specifically what the messenger does and take dictations and bring forth teachings. We are looking – certainly – for all of you to be able to share you own presence, and in sharing your own presence also allowing us to shine through you. You all have the capacity to be the open door in that way.

Some of you may do other things as well, I am not putting a limitation on it that this is the only thing you can do. This is certainly something you can strive to do and that most of you are much closer to doing than you might think. As you can see, you could stand up and share. If you do it more times, if you work on your own reaction to doing it or having done it, you can get to this point of being an open door. It is not a matter of always (although you may do it sometimes) standing in front of a group of people. It is also one-on-one or with a few friends where you can share something from your heart that is beyond mere intellectual understanding.

How can you do this? You can do it by, as the messenger explained, working on this sense of ownership, the image of yourself. You can do it when you are setting other people free because you have set yourself free. You are setting them free to react any way they want because you have already set yourself free. However they react, you are not going to have a negative reaction to it. You do not own them, they do not own you but you are sharing.

What it truly means to give

You see my beloved, there is a very important concept to ponder because most people on earth have a distorted view of what it means to give. They think that if you give something to somebody, they either own the thing you are giving them or they own you because you are obligated to give them something else tomorrow. When you come to the point where you have set yourself free from the need to own other people, and you have accepted that nobody else can own you, then you can freely give. That is the real meaning behind Jesus’ statement: “Freely ye have received, freely give.”

How have you freely received? Because Jesus was free when he gave to his disciples. He did not have the sense that: “They are my disciples, I own them.” He freely gave without any strings attached, without any expectations, any demands, any sense of ownership. What he wanted his disciples to do was to then give that gift to others in the same freedom, freedom from ownership.

“The prince of this world cometh and has nothing in me.” How can you achieve that state of freedom? Well, you cannot let the prince of this world own you. How can you come to a point where the prince of this world has nothing in you whereby he can own you? You can come to that point only when you have given up the desire to own anything on earth. As long as there is something on earth that you want to own, then the prince of this world has something in you—and he will use it to exercise ownership over you.
