New Form of Relationships

Archangel Michael on the New Form of Relationships
July 19, 2017 by Steve Beckow

I came across this excerpt from a reading Kathleen and I had with Archangel Michael in 2014 while researching for a book on sacred partnership.

So much of what he said back then is assuming greater and greater relevance now. Here he looks at the new form of relationships.

Archangel Michael: The [new] form of sacred union and partnership [is] where you truly come together, unique, individual, diverse. We are not trying to meld your hearts, your souls, your personalities, your talents, your abilities, but they tend to complement one another, and yes, at times and places to conjoin and to co-create.

But the sacred union is one of truly engaging, not only in a relationship that is based on freedom, liberation, love ― and that is where I have begun with you this day, of being love, loving, and being the love, being in love, allowing yourself to love, allowing yourself to be loved, to allow this love to spill from you to the collective, to utilize the energy of that love to create and to co-create both in the very large sense and in the very individual sense of your family.

So it is a new level of participation, of being truly united in heart. It has not ― well, it did in the very beginning, but ― it has not existed, or it has existed by exception rather than the rule, since the demise of the third dimension.

This form of relationship was in place in the very beginning. As the beginning creator race came to the planet, this was the way in which sacred union worked.

Then came the false grids, the paradigms, the illusions, can we say the fall from grace, in many ways. And so it is not that this type of union never existed on planet. It did here and there, now and then, but it most certainly was not the norm. It was not even truly even aspired to, because it was not conceived of.

One of the primary elements in the new form of partnership is not merely freedom, it is a sense of selflessness. And I use this word not to mean, in any way, shape or form, sacrifice.

But merely a sense of selflessness insofar… not that you lose yourself, but the importance of the soul as defined previously by ego disappears. And that is also part of the ascension, as you well know.

You’re talking about being space?

AAM: I am talking about being the truth of who you are.
It’s not sacrifice …

AAM: It’s not compromise. It is not settling. And so, yes, that is the new form, and that is what you are doing. So think of what you are involved in, if you so choose. … What you are doing is working or laying down the template. Because there are new forms, new patterns of behavior, of interaction, of being in partnership, of being in love.

Now, the new form does not in any way eliminate what we would call the bliss and zing factors. We are not suggesting that in any way these are pushed to the side. They are not. (Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve and Kathleen through Linda Dillon, May 28, 2014.)

A Permanent Experience of Global Unity

A Permanent Experience of Global Unity

July 16, 2017 by Steve Beckow
Sacred partnership is one form of sacred union.
It implies that two or more people pursue some common activity. They may work together. They may live together. They come together in some common pursuit.
Sacred union is simply the experiencing of a bond or connection of love with another. Sacred partnerships are one form it might take. But it might also take the form of a spontaneous experience of unity with all of humanity, a spiritual experience involving no one else.
My gosh. I just realized. I’ve had that experience!
When my heart opened on March 13, 2015, such a torrent (a tsunami) of love poured out from it that any objection to anything in life was swept away from me.
I could have danced with my neighbor, on and on. For the time it lasted, I was love, since nothing recognizable about me remained, swept clean by this torrent.
I could not change that love in any way. It was unconditional and universal by its nature, like water or honey. It didn’t say “I will flow to this one, but not to that one.”
It would have been impossible for me to love one person and hate another while in that higher-dimensional state. I could do nothing else than love all.
This spontaneous experience of unity with all is an example of sacred union, perhaps the most sacred of all because it was caused by an experience of “real” love.
But notice: Here’s that word “union” again, because everything from here on in – with the exception of souls departing to continue in the Third Dimension – is probably going to be about union and communion, unity and community – and love.
It’s going to be about growing closer. And keep in mind that this is an introvert who’s saying this. My circle will be very small.
One of the things I read as I researched sacred partnership was the observation that our soul mates and soul group were gradually returning as if by chance encounter. The teams are forming up. All of this is happening because of the myriad of actions the Company of Heaven is managing backstage.
But closer and closer we’ll grow, evidently, all of it converging to produce a permanent experience of global unity.
We’ve had those times before. But they were just moments. Victory in Europe Day. The assassination of John Kennedy. 9/11.
But now we’re going to be pulling together in sacred partnership and other forms of sacred union, bit by bit, until global unity simply arises as the new norm.
The Divine Mother referred to a process similar to the one I went through and probably what we’ll all go through:
“Your greatest desire is to be in union – with us, with your guides, with your beloved sacred union partner, and with each other. When you enter into unity consciousness – think of it as the implosion and explosion of heart consciousness – it is you surrendering and at the same time assuming responsibility for the truth and the totality of who you are, all aspects, all parts – integrated divinity.
“In unity consciousness, the fear of not being unique and special disappears because the knowing, the wisdom, the sublime bliss of being love is enough to let down your barriers and joyfully, ecstatically, without defenses – without what you would call vasanas – to join in genuine cooperation, admiration of each other, of the uniqueness of your gifts, of the unique expression you have chosen, and I have chosen for you. And so this sense that if I conjoin I lose something is gone.
“And so is unity consciousness part of the Ascension, an expression of the higher-dimensional realm? Absolutely. And it is an expression of joy. It is the relinquishing of struggle.” (1) (My emphasis.)
“Think of it as the implosion and explosion of heart consciousness.” Exactly. “The supreme bliss of being love is enough to let down your barriers.” Yes. It’s enough to sweep them all away – for as long as the experience lasts.
Listen to Jesus on the subject:
“The Tsunami of Love that the Mother is washing you with, day, night, and in-between is preparing you for this sacred union. In many ways it is the baptism before the marriage; it is the cleansing before the full union. You are ready to fulfill your desire to unite, but as one who has walked, yes, in favored position, perhaps more knowing than many, but also fully as man, as human, you are prepared to love yourself.
“The Mother’s love washing within you, cleansing you, integrating, anchoring. What does this do? Aside from washing away the horrific debris, what is the end result of the Mother’s tsunami?
“It is that you are fully prepared, you are in a state of grace to enter into union with yourself. To love and cherish and honor and admire and commit and fulfill your dreams, your mission and purpose, your desired creations right now, not next year, not next month, right now. You are prepared to enter into union with your twin flame, with your circle, with the Council, with your star brothers and sisters, with the entire human race.
“Now, are some still being washed by the tsunami? Yes, and we say it is about to intensify, so get ready! …
“Everything, your design, your heart, your tri-flame, your grid, Gaia’s grid, our grid … are in harmony and alignment. What is the next step after alignment? It is what I speak of: Sacred Union.” (2) (My emphasis.)
We’re fully prepared by the torrential nature of the inner tsunami for spiritual union. That fits with me experience. Not only prepared but longing for it.
The state we’re now in swept clean by the tsunami is, Jesus tells us, a state of grace.
Again, as with ascension, the process leading to union or ascension seems to be gradual. Some of us may not even notice it’s happening until we remember how it used to be.
From a Hell of unbridled greed to a Summerland of unity, peace, and love. I don’t think any of us knew we were in Hell or dreamed we’d go on such a journey to reach the Summerlands of consciousness.

A World that Works for Everyone

A You-and-Me World: The Organizing Principle for a World That Works
July 13, 2017 by Steve Beckow

Werner 33I came across this article from 2014 in the course of attending to a request. It’s so germane to our work that I’d like to repost it here.

Yesterday I looked at the context called “a world that works for everyone,” which was created by Werner Erhard in the 1970s. (1) Today I want to look at the organizing principle that Werner put forth for such a world.

In 1980 Werner referred to that organizing principle when he said “a you-and-me world [is] a world that works for everyone.” (2) I actually vividly remember him saying the following words to describe his vision:

“Sometime around now – it may have happened five years ago or fifty years ago – … the rules for living successfully on this planet shifted. We can no longer hope to live meaningful, purposeful lives using the rules of a you or me world. It’s becoming clearer and clearer to those who will look that in order to live successfully on this planet, we must discover and live by the rules of you and me.” (3)

He described this context as “more radical than a revolution.” In place of the exclusionist principles common in society, Werner offered inclusionist principles based on each of us taking responsibility for our world and letting go of our polar, confrontational leanings. He said:

“Here, purpose and meaning in our lives do not come in response to a common enemy or in the wake of a popular leader, but from individuals willing to take on and create purpose and meaning for themselves.

“It is the beginning of a transformation in the quality of life on our planet for each of us, with no one left out. We can choose to make the success of all humanity our personal business.” (4)

The Vietnam War was fresh in everyone’s memory. There was awareness among a few of how the population had been manipulated into going to war. But there was nowhere near the knowledge of the forces that wanted to win control of the world that there is today.

No one suspected what was happening behind closed doors. It took 9/11 to wake many people up.

Werner was speaking into a space inhabited by protesters and activists who had begun by marching but ended by burning banks and eventually devastating the downtown areas through which they marched. No one’s hands were clean in those days. Werner seemed alone in emphasizing accountability and integrity.

Werner’s call for a you-and-me society, a world that worked for everyone, with no one left out, was about as challenging a perspective for me as any that I’d ever heard before. It wasn’t simply its global reach that was revolutionary; it’s that it included very many people whom activists at that time regarded with disdain and missed few opportunities to ridicule.

Werner described the kind of world we lived in here:

“The world isn’t friendly to the experience that your life works; the world isn’t friendly to the experience that you have relationships which are meaningful and nurturing. There’s no room for that out there. There’s plenty of room to be very slick and clever and successful. You’re a slick operator? Terrific! The world’s truly friendly to that. But if you’re decent, you’d better hide it.” (5)

Proposing his vision was radical enough. But Werner didn’t stop there. He practically campaigned for it.

And he wasn’t helped as much as we are by rising energy, the prospect of global prosperity and a shift in consciousness.

Our work to create Nova Earth is helped by the uplifting impact of the energies sent to us from the far reaches of space and from other dimensions. But Werner had no such help. He was a lone person facing into all the unworkability that prevailed at the time.

That unworkability included the undermining of foreign economies, the seizure of nations’ natural resources by multinational companies, the assassination of leaders of other countries who tried to establish democracy, and constant warfare in every region of the globe, disguised as anti-communist and later anti-terrorist.

No one at the time imagined that all this was a strategy to take control of the world from the people and create a “New World Order.”

In 1980 Werner wrote that:

“In this new context, making a difference becomes a way of life – individuals live their lives out of the knowledge that each of us has the responsibility and the power to create a world that works for all of us.” (6)

No one that I know suspected at the time that this generation would actually face into a global shift in consciousness. People like Werner did the heavy lifting for this global shift and cleared the space for us to consider forgiveness on a planetary scale.

Facing into the challenge that Werner issued was the first introduction for many of us of what we now know as “unitive consciousness.” As Werner put it:

“When we start to examine our assumptions about our relationship with the world, we begin a process that results in a discovery. We discover that not only are we related; we are actually members of a vast human family.

“Along with this discovery comes a deeply experienced sense of responsibility for all family members, and a desire to do something, to make a contribution that will make the world work for everyone.” (7)

Werner 22He and his associates created one organization and workshop after another with incredible speed (the Hunger Project, the Breakthrough Foundation, Hermenet, etc.) to address the challenges of the work. His stated purpose for the Community Workshop was particularly revealing:

“The problems of our times are so massive, so pressing, that they cannot be handled by individuals alone. The time for solitary heroes is over. We can no longer rely on old ways of thinking, old patterns of leadership and followership.

“If we are going to create a world that works for everyone, we must learn to function in communities; to be effective and produce results in participation with others. …

“The [Community] workshop is an opportunity to be responsible for a convergence of vision and circumstances which results in true community action.” (8)

He held that the world of his time was run on the basis of survival. In fact, the fundamental insight that brought on Werner’s own transformation was his realization that he too was skewed toward survival:

“I saw that the fundamental skew to all knowledge, and to the unenlightened mind, is survival, or, as I put it then, success. All my knowledge up to then had been skewed toward success, toward making it, toward self-realization, toward all the goals, from material to mystic.

“In the next instant – after I realized that I knew nothing – I realized that I knew everything.” (9)

A survival-oriented world gave rise to a you-or-me way of life (looking out for Number One, as one author described it). “In a you-or-me world, nothing makes a difference,” he said. (10) Trainer Angelo d’Amelio referred to the rules of such a world:

“I know how to win and to make others lose. I know the rules of the ‘you or me’ game. I’ve been trained by society in these rules.” (11)

We could engage in individual acts of kindness and charity that “proved” our benevolence, which Werner would have called “gestures” and “pretense.” But we were not to allow others into the winners’ circle or share our knowledge with them of how to win. Angelo said:

“You can share the fruits of winning but don’t share winning itself with them because you [may] have to start wrestling again and, when you do, it’s still ‘you or me.’” (12)

In a you-and-me world, “I win by virtue of your winning. It’s true but,” Angelo added, “you’re not allowed to think in this way. It’s not natural. It’s naive, stupid.” (13) We know that the strategy of the CIA at this time was to ridicule those who witnessed UFOs so as to keep us from knowing of the presence of the galactics. That strategy was not limited to one field; it was practised against anyone who tried to make a difference in the society of the times – if they were not assassinated (like John Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Robert Kennedy, Malcolm X, etc.).

Angelo asserted that “a completely-developed, whole human being will naturally select as a context for life that life will work for everyone.” (14) Others at the time were calling this context win/win. The work to make the world such a place was to be found precisely where we stood, he held.

“If you want to make a difference, if you want your life to matter, you must devote yourself to finding out what’s wanted and needed where you are.

“You need to go home and find out what’s wanted and needed to make the world work where you are, to create a you-and-me world context for life.” (15)

Today we’d say that a you-and-me world is run on the divine qualities, such as forgiveness, trust and love. We’d talk about how everyone in the world is connected and that our separative consciousness is what caused the problems on our planet.

Werner chose to leave America when Scientology threatened his life and his daughter accused him of sexual assault on the promise of a large bribe (which she never received).

My understanding was that he went to Russia and was largely responsible for glasnost and perestroika and to Northern Ireland where he assisted in achieving peace there. In these years he established the Mastery Foundation and trained peace negotiators and leaders.

I can’t think of another person who’s labored harder for world peace and for a world established on a firm foundation of workability. There may be people who have but I personally don’t know of them.

Now we’re on the brink of creating a world that works for everyone, based on the organizing principles of inclusion, universality, non-judgmentalness, etc. In my own view, in many ways, we’ll be reaping the crop that Werner sowed.

I certainly acknowledge my debt to the man whose associates turned me completely around the day I walked into that training room. He taught me principles that molded my thinking like no one else has.

The research for this article comes from the “est Dictionary,” which can be found here: Given that Werner’s views are so relevant to the work we’re doing today, I’ll be writing more about them as we go along.

7 tips for finding your tribe

Lissa Rankin: 7 Tips for Finding Your Tribe
July 9, 2017 by Steve Beckow

Lissa rankin

This is the article Sitara refers to, above.

By Lissa Rankin, September 6, 2012

Like so many others who struggle to find their tribe, I spent much of my life tiptoeing around my desire to find a group of people among whom I could be unconditionally loved and accepted, while staying in alignment with my true nature. Although I had my share of friends, most of them weren’t friends with each other, and I never had that group of people I could call and ask “What are we doing tonight?”

I was always too nerdy for the jocks and cheerleaders, too cool for the nerds, too uncool for the popular kids, too goodie-two-shoes for the stoners, not goodie-two-shoes enough for the church kids, too liberal for the preppies, too conservative for the Deadheads… You get the picture.

I tried to find my tribe, but no matter what I tried, I always felt like the odd duck swimming with swans, who all seemed to enjoy a sense of belonging I never quite felt.

Then my spiritual counselor pointed out that my ego had created this separation story that distanced me from the very belonging I craved (You can read the nitty gritty details about my separation story here: Since gulping down the uncomfortable truth of this guidance, everything started to shift for me, and finally, I am finding my tribe.

Among these beautiful people who love and accept me just as I am, I find myself becoming increasingly brave. I show them parts of myself I’ve previously hidden, and not only are they not rejecting me – they’re telling me they love me even more because I’m willing to be imperfect amidst so much pressure to be perfect. My confessions of imperfection come with an added bonus. When I’m brave enough to show people my big ugly tail, they tend to do the same. And as Brene Brown tells us in her fabulous TEDx talk The Power of Vulnerability, this breeds intimacy and fosters a sense of belonging, which fans the flames of my Inner Pilot Light.

Tips For Attracting Your Tribe
I know I’m not alone in my desire to be part of a tribe, so if you’re jonesing to find yours, let me share with you some of the lessons I’ve learned along the way.

Be mindful in your intention-setting. When you’re ready to find your tribe, put it out there! Set clear intentions. Ask the Universe to support your desire. Try creating a home altar and fill it with sacred objects meant to call in your tribe. Burn incense. Bang a drum. Release old, limiting beliefs by writing them on slips of paper and burning them or by imbuing stones with self-sabotaging beliefs and tossing them in the ocean, a river, a lake, or over your balcony.
You’re special but you’re not special. Sometimes we let our sense of being “different” or “special” get in the way of belonging. Understand that each of us is unique and individual, but we’re also much more alike than it may appear on the surface when we wear masks and lack the courage to be uncool. Don’t let your ego’s separation story keep you from belonging. Underneath our egos is a matrix of Universal energy that unites us all. We all hold within us sparks of divinity, and when we tap into the Oneness, the illusion of separateness dissolves and we’re left with what we most crave – intimate connection soul-to-soul.
Surround yourself with like-minded individuals. Take an art class. Join a women’s or men’s group. Sign up for a workshop. Find a spiritual community that feels authentic and lights you up. Engage in activities that ignite your soul.
Ditch judgment. Someone from your tribe might be standing right next to you in the grocery store, but if you label her as “other” because you don’t like her hairstyle or her fashion sense or what she put in her shopping cart, you might walk right by the person who could have been your next BFF. Instead of judging someone, dare to smile and make eye contact. Look past the surface into the beauty and resonance of that person’s soul.
Be discerning. While judgment and criticism erect barriers between you and your tribe, you also won’t jive with everyone you meet. This is where discernment comes in. Get clear on the kind of community you hope to attract. Be honest about your own needs and be willing to communicate them. Ask for what you desire and invite others to do the same. Set healthy boundaries but leave your heart open. The most important thing holding a tribe together is a sense of safety with our vulnerabilities.
Call in your tribe. Don’t just sit around and wait for your people to find you. Put your desires out there on social media. Blog about your tribe, so people can tell if they long to be part of it. Be specific about what you long for. (If you’re starting a purple hair tribe, tell them! If only goddesses need apply, be honest. If your tribe includes Christian Republicans or Buddhist Democrats or atheist moondancers, name it.) You’ll be surprised how easy it can be if you’re brave enough to speak your truth unapologetically.
Don’t be shy. Take action. When you meet people who light you up – the ones you hope will become part of your tribe – be brave enough to invite them to be part of your inner circle. Tell them how much you enjoy and admire them. Be unabashed about your affection and respect. Set a date to get together and connect with them. Start a women’s or men’s group, get together to mastermind your businesses, start an email thread or private Facebook group to connect you, plan a retreat together, or get creative in your own way!

Your Body is a Universe

Your Body is a Universe
July 8, 2017 by Tiara Kumara

When we come across the terms ‘Divine Consciousness’, ‘unified field’ or even ‘multidimensional perception’, we don’t have to go so far from home to understand what these seemingly far-reaching ideas mean. We just have to spend a little more time observing nature.

Complimentary Morphogenesis Enrollment

Our coherence with nature and the natural world is one of the most important connections that we, as humans, have. Nature serves as a botanical bridge, offering many clues to our true reality as part of a self-sustaining unified field.

Likewise, Earth’s connection to the sun and to our solar system is one of the most important connections our planet has. Our sun’s connection to the galaxy is one of the most important connections our solar system has. Our galaxy’s connection to the universe, and beyond, is one of the most important connections our galaxy has. Our universe’s connection to the mysteries beyond is one of the most important connections our universe has.

All forms of life are wholly interconnected and coherent. Without this multi-level, coherent interconnectivity, nothing would exist. Yet, each entity is also a single organism. This also applies to our own bodies. We are like the living cells in the body of the cosmos. We inhabit a living universe, reflected by the most fundamental characteristics of our body’s biology. As is the smallest, so is the greatest.

Our scientists have confirmed that a single cell is a complete system, as is the brain and the entire body. Every single system is driven by feedback loops and sustained by homeostasis. It continually self-organizes. We are presiding over an entire ecology, and like planetary ecology, our body responds to all that nourishes it to maintain balance and harmony.

By going inward and deeply communing with your body, you can know the universe more intimately. In fact, the more that you explore and experience your own body universe, the more that you can understand the unified field around you as it unfolds in the form of reflections in your daily life.

Your body is an entire ecology that has the ability to bring about accelerated biological evolution. This is done through the increasing coherence that you have with your total self, with attuned loving thought given to that ‘totality’ of self. This is one of the main keys to unlocking the powerful ability to self-actualize into anything you want to be.

Timeline Split and August Eclipse Gateway

Sandra Walter: Timeline Split and the August Eclipse Gateway with Video
July 1, 2017 by Sandra Walter

Blessings Beloved Light Tribe

The strong entry to the August eclipse Gateway during the Solstice prompted me to complete a video about preparations, Gridwork and the current unfoldments with timelines. The intention is to reach the Lightworkers who prefer YouTube to reading articles, so that everyone may unify in this Divine Service.

While the intel on what the eclipse symbolizes was mentioned in recent interviews, I will save that topic for next week’s article. Remember that New Earth grid system preparation, especially along the eclipse pathway, is a focus through July. The dates for the August gateway, the path of totality, and the timeline bifurcation are mentioned in the video.

July 1-7 is the traditional (etheric) conclave of the Ascended Masters at Mount Shasta. We will focus on owning our Mastery during the Unity Meditations on SUNday.

Tuesday, July 4 is Independence Day here in the USA; a wonderful day for Gridwork and grounding the highest intentions for the August Gateway. Enjoy the video!

In Love, Light and Service,
