Another theme our sources are emphasizing at this time is our movement through the various stages of love to the unitive love that comes with and brings in Ascension.
The Celestial White Beings told us recently that:
“The key focus during the Era of Love is of course love. With dedication and guided by your inner knowingness you will move through numerous stages and levels of acceptance of love. The greatest stage is self-love.” (1)
Self-love is not necessarily the first stage. For instance, Archangel Michael told me and my sacred partner that my love for her was opening me to my love for myself, for Archangel Michael and for the Divine Mother.
But many people start with self-love on the road to Ascension. The Celestial White Beings continue:
“Many of you have been focusing upon loving yourself unconditionally and are becoming at peace and in oneness with yourself and the Creator within. The Era of Love encourages you to explore self-love and experience limitless self-love in every moment of your day and reality.” (2)
They emphasize teachings very similar to the Council of Love, that, in our love for ourselves, we awaken all aspects of ourselves to become complete.
“Forgiveness, letting go, being conscious and opening your heart encourages a deepening self-love.
“But through the process of self-love you actually move through all aspects of your being awakening each aspect, until you recognise yourself as the Creator in unity and oneness with all.” (3)
This is the journey of Ascension, they say.
“The route and journey of ascension is a journey of love especially in this era, it is a journey of self-love through which you recognise all aspects, levels of yourself realising that all are expressions of the Creator.” (4)
Whether completing our vasanas leads to increasing self-love, as in my case, or increasing self-love leads to purification, we’re in the time of finishing the process of purification and expanding self love. They tell us:
“When focusing upon loving yourself it is often that you begin with dissolving pain and hurt, maybe negative traits of the ego and personality.
“This may appear as purification, but through self-love you are accepting your human self and manifestations as well as your personality.” (5)
Meanwhile the Arcturian Group takes up the story at a stage beyond simple self-love or love for our sacred partner to the point at which we begin loving one another as a collective, within the One.
They remind us that “love in its truest sense is the energetic connection between the many within the One.” (6)
Once we see the connection with all life, we no longer resonate with the lower dimensions, they tell us.
“Once an individual evolves into his true identity and begins to realize the interconnectedness of all life, he no longer resonates with the activities of the unawakened lower densities – activities based in separation.” (7)
The Constant Companions also remind us that “all you have to do, is to open your heart to your brothers and sisters in any way that feels right for you, and then, you will feel a sense of communion that will better enable you to see your own connection to your core.” (8)
We’re in “a phase where an even deeper connection between you will begin to crystallize.”
“We want to you try to find that new frequency that is already in place, there for you to connect to any time you feel able to do so. And when you start to tap into this field of magnetics, you will find your own energy starting to flow more in sync with the current that is engendered by all that are already connected to this grid you have created.” (9)
The Constant Companions tell us that “all is well, and that you are exactly where you are meant to be” (10)
And Hilarion echoes that message: “All is unfolding in divine timing and you are exactly where you are meant to be at this time.” (11)
Where we are meant to be is beginning the Ascension process which will unfold steadily from this point on, as Archangel Michael told us on May 15:
“The Ascension process does not begin in the Fifth Dimension. It has already begun. You are already experiencing it. But when you reach there ― as you are about to, by the way; that is as close as I can come without breaking my promise with the channel.” (12)
