For those people who find themselves in the trough at this time, here’s a reminder of what Archangel Michael said about the naturalness of such a development at different times during the Transition (April 27-around June 1).
The tendency is to identify and unite with the feeling of despondency or depression that arises in our minds when in the trough. Rather than doing that, it may be better to imagine yourself as being outside the feeling, but able to feel it. And then observe its rise, persistence and diminishment, experiencing the feelings through to completion and then letting them go.
Being at passive awareness with them allows them to complete themselves as fast as they ever will. Resist them and they persist. Once complete, their impact on us the next time we’re in the trough will lessen and then lessen the next time and lessen again, etc.
From An Hour with an Angel, May 14, 2012, with Archangel Michael and Geoff West
Archangel Michael: This energy that is coming to you from our perspective … is like a laser beam that is beaming directly from the Infinite, the Source, the One, into your being. The portal that it travels through is your heart chakra, but it is diffusing throughout your entire being. It is important, especially in terms of the headaches and the neckaches, to keep your crown chakra wide open.
But how you are experiencing it in the human realm more like waves. So the translation factor — we send it as laser beams, but it comes to you as waves. Think of the ocean, the middle of the ocean, with great troughs and wonderful, rolling waves. It is not a storm at sea, but it is the power of the ocean; it is the power of Mare, (1) for that matter. So, there are times when you will feel exceptionally high, energetic; that you can write, broadcast, take on the world, and that is wondrous.
And then, when you are feeling that way, when you are feeling the inspiration, then go for it and do what you can do. But when you come into the trough — which is the time of integration, of anchoring what you have just been given, of bringing it more deeply within the core of your being, because what you are doing is keeping this in physicality — it is different than simply ascending out of your body.
When you are in the trough you may feel as if it is, again, a cosmic depression. But, my beloved friends, do not think that is really what it is. Look at it and say, “Oh, no, that is not it. I am simply in the trough, and this is the integration, so I feel a lower energy.” And that is where much of your reflection is also taking place. It is taking place in the place of the trough. So you are integrating.
So do not try and rush out of it. Do not try and push your way up to the top of the next wave. Allow the rhythm. It is being given to you exactly, and in perfect measure, to each one of you, how you can handle it.
So there is not two of you that experience this exactly the same. It is as unique and bright and beautiful as you are. Yes, there are similarities of all these symptoms that we have talked about, all these conditions. But do not rush it. Allow it. What you are doing, sweet angels of light, you are allowing us to do our job. And so, for this, we thank you.
(1) The Divine Mother called herself “Mary” in her May 7 interview, just one of the thousand names by which she is known and then explained that it would be better to say “Mare,” the Latin word for ocean. The Holy Father is the Ocean of being and I found that a nice symbolic reference to the Mother’s oneness with the Father.
