In a private reading I had with him recently, Archangel Michael said that the changes that have been happening have been primarily internal rather than external.
“The question or the issue that we would address is this entire issue of change. You call it emergence, Ascension. What we are also saying, you have changed, and you saw that very clearly [for instance, in “System Restore”]. (1) You are changing, and that is delightful. And you will continue, to change, to expand, to grow, to discover the fullness of who you are.
“Do not hesitate to go into that unknown exploration. Because that is where the richness is. There are new areas to mine, and you have just begun.
“Think about it, dear heart. You are exploring the infinite plan of the Mother, not merely the universes that she has created, but the entirety. There is no limit.” (2)
On An Hour with an Angel, he said that our ascension symptoms would include more than just aches and pains. Our clearing, such as I’ve been doing over this past week for instance, is also part of it as is the mounting spiritual desire to go forward.
“You see, Ascension symptoms that you have in in this process do not only include headaches and painful joints and exhaustion, kidney problems, arthritis. Do not forget, all things that are not of love, that you individually, my bright angel masters, have experienced in this lifetime, which is reflective of other lifetimes, by the way, is coming to the surface for clearing. But so are the soul desires, the push to truly go forward.” (3)
He called the Tsunami of Love a precursor to Ascension.
“But understand, this Ascension, and the energies that you are feeling, are much like the Mother’s Tsunami of Love, which is a precursor in many ways. But it is pushing against that portal.
“So think of it this way. The human collective, which may have been two miles away a year ago, have all been approaching, in their own various reluctant, recalcitrant, eager, joyous ways. They have been approaching with the way-showers, with the pillars, towards the portal, and at the same time there is pressure on the portal to be fully opened.” (4)
He explained that everyone’s experience of Ascension would be different.
“Now, each individual is having, and will have, a different experience of Ascension. Now I am going to describe, in general terms, what this Ascension looks, feels like and what that experience is like. But it does not mean, even though you come as a collective, it does not mean that each of you perceives and experiences this sacred union, the rising up through a higher-dimensional realm, in the same way.” (5)
He discussed the new development of ascending with the physical body.
“It is not that you are going to shed your physical body and just be in a light form. No. Your light form and your physical body basically become a unified grid. That is the miracle of Ascension. It is that melding in that infinite moment into your totality, and the shift that you have been making from carbon to crystalline is so that vibration, that frequency can actually be held, in light body, in physical body.
“You have never in physical form ― well, not since the beginning ― held such a high vibration on Gaia. It very quickly deteriorated. Now, I know that we speak in eons of time. I am not speaking about eons or decades or years of time in terms of Ascension. You are on the doorstep. The pressure from the cloud coming in and the pressure from the portal of we who are welcoming you is building. It is ready.” (6)
I asked him what changes we could expect in the body in this first phase of Ascension. He replied:
“First of all, we have always said that this Ascension is unique insofar as you are maintaining the physical form and reality. It does not mean ― and it never has meant ― that you are shedding your physical bodies.
“Now, will they be lighter? Will they not carry the old paradigms of death and disease, disillusionment, dismay, lack, and limitation? Yes, because those are of the old Third Dimension, which is but a wispy vapor at this point.” (7)
Staying with the body while ascending is something that has never been done before in the universe.
“The key to this Ascension is keeping the form, to do it in form, to ascend, in form. Too many are thinking about the release of the body, or that their body is so remarkably different ― it will be eventually ― but not in that snap.
“[Actually], it is not a snap. It is a process. And humanity is in the middle of that process.
“Now, will they shine more brightly? Will their consciousness be completely different? Expanded world view, different? Yes. All of that is true.
“The unity, the heart consciousness, the ability to create and to co-create with us? Yes.
“But it is not to wake up and find yourself [outside the body]― that would be a shame, actually. It would mean that the plan had not worked. And that is impossible! So you will not find yourself floating on a cloud.” (8)
