On May 27, Archangel Michael said:
“Those who are in a position of stewardship, of beginning projects that lead the way to the building and the re-creation of what Nova Earth is truly about … [will] become the spokesbeings for many.” (1)
As we look ahead to the time when lightworkers will move into leadership positions, the cabal having disappeared from the public scene, exactly what does leadership mean? What does it entail? Why are we afraid to take up a leadership role?
Archangel Michael discussed that subject in May of 2015 on An Hour with an Angel. I’d like to re-examine that discussion here.
If you find yourself with questions like “On whose authority do I take a leadership role?” or “What does humanity commonly seek?” this is the discussion to come to.
Archangel Michael: Previously, I have begun to speak about the new form of leadership. And I would say to thee, we use this term that you understand – and that is understood throughout many intergalactic cultures of leadership – of responsibility, of teamwork, of cohesion, of discernment, of all the divine qualities, not based on the old realm of control and authority and lust and arbitrary decision-making, but, upon the paradigm, upon the construct of sharing your talents and abilities.
Everyone, and I say this to a planet that has billions of people, each of you have brought unique capacities, talents, and abilities to create and co-create individually and collectively. And increasingly what you are going to hear us speak of is this union between — not only above and below, within and without — but the individual and the collective. You have a song: You can’t have one without the other. (2) Well, this is where we truly begin to delve into this.
Leadership is assuming your responsibilities, acknowledging, accepting, embracing the wonder of who you are. And, yes, to refer to those core issues, to not allow those core issues to, in any way, interfere with the fulfillment of who you are and why you came.
We do not even need to discuss the thousands of other lifetimes that you have had if we simply look at leadership in terms of this life, this time, this time of magnificent transition, of ascension, of awakening, because, in each of these phases, the role of leadership, the meaning of leadership, has had different quantifiers.
Now you can say to me, what does leadership look like, taste like? What is it experienced as in a society that is ascended, that is based on divine qualities and equality? What does it look like when the egoic control, when the manipulation, when freedom is the watchword and people are free to step forward? When there is gender equality, racial equality, financial equality, when the structures of the old and the systems that have bound you are gone? What does it look like?
Well, sweet angels, there is still a need for people, whether you are earth-keeper or portal, wayshower or starseed, there will always be need for people, individuals, and groups, who will step forward and say, I can do that. I can take the lead because this is within the realm of my competence. I understand what is required. I am ready, willing, able, excited, interested, enthusiastic to do this. And in that, you both lead the parade and act as the shepherd. You hold the vision and you go to the back of the line to make sure that no one is left behind.
That is what leadership is. It is not assuming a primary position, because leadership is shared. It does not rest in one individual, one institution. Those times, my friends, are over.
When we speak of mastery, again we speak of the individual coming to the place of their mastery. But as you go forward as a collective, you then become an expression, a collective, a circle, a massive circle of mastery, each in your own particular chosen realms.
There is need for all of this. As I have said [previously], too often, for very legitimate [reasons], many of you, particularly who are light workers and love holders, have maintained an exceptionally low profile. And you have done so for reasons of protection, and protection in the true sense of security, fight or flight, but also protection of your psyche, of your soul, for social protection so that your family did not think you were insane.
[You have done so] so that socially you would be able to operate, or you would be able to operate within a corporate environment that frowned on such things as active spiritual quests, and, heaven forbid, a spiritual quest that was above and beyond the corporate goals.
So you have had a variety of reasons. You have played an old third-dimensional game with cause. But that cause, that rationale, has come to an end. It is not just ending. It is already over. It has ceased. Then you say, but dear Lord, we are not in Nova Earth. We are not in the Golden Times as yet.
Well, I could say two things to you: Why do you think that you are not? What is it about these times that you do not feel that you are already in your leadership position creating the Golden Age? And at the same time I will say: No, you are not quite there yet. You are in this time of transition. You are in this time of the great awakening. And is it not exciting and magnificent, and is it not at times frustrating, above and below?
But during the time of transition, which is where I would like to focus our discussion this day, it is more crucial than ever that the leadership — personal, collective — step forward and be seen. Yes, we are talking about exposure. We are talking about vulnerability, but we are also talking about liberation, about not censoring your words, your actions, your dreams, your purpose, and what you are birthing and bringing forth in the name of the Mother, in the name of the galactics and intergalactics, Gaia, and all of humanity.
It is freeing, beloveds. It is freeing to not keep that bushel basket over your head any longer. You say, Lord, I do not know if I am ready because I still have a family, neighbors, colleagues that think that my belief systems are not in accordance with the mainstream.
And I say, yes, that is correct. But how does this mainstream shift? It shifts, beloved ones, through your beliefs, through your actions, through what you are bringing forth. (3)
Steve Beckow: I think where I would first like to begin, Lord, is to get clear on what the source of our authority is. If we’re going to step out and lead, usually we lead on the basis of representing something or doing it on behalf of something. What is the nature and the source of our authority for our leadership? I almost know what you are going to say, but I would like to get it on the record.
Archangel Michael: Of course you know what I am going to say, dear heart. You do it on the authority of the Divine Mother. You do it on my authority. You do it on the authority of the Company of Heaven, the Council of Love, your star family, your intergalactic brothers and sisters. But most of all, you do it on the authority of humanity. You do it on the authority of your sacred self.
Authority, in the truest meaning of the word [being the “author” of an action], is the assumption of a role and responsibility to fulfill a mission, an undertaking, whether it is of a long nature of several million years, or of a brief nature of an assignment.
But you have come from a paradigm — a very strong paradigm — of control. You have come from a system where people have said and believed: Do you have the authority to do that? Always in a challenging and somewhat negative manner: By whose authority do you act?
And for a variety of reasons, all related to liberation, freedom, and self-worth, there has been a hesitancy for human beings, individuals, to step forward and say: On my authority, on my supreme authority as a servant of the Mother that lives within, as a servant of humanity for whom I speak.
And then they will say: By whose authority do you have the right to speak for the collective?
That is where unity consciousness comes to the forefront. That is where the truth speaking — which has been very absent — where the truth speaking of what humanity truly wants, desires, yearns for, and diligently, consistently works to create, comes to the forefront.
When you speak for humanity, what do they want? Well, you know the first thing I would say is peace. Because, unless there is peace upon the planet, the love does not have a chance to flourish in the garden. But you begin to speak with authority and responsibility – because you cannot divorce these two – it is like hope and trust, you cannot divorce them. You cannot separate them.
And you have the authority, the God-given source – whatever you choose to call the One – you have the authority to speak the truth, not some concoction of what you think, or hope humanity wants, but the truth of what you know humanity wants in a collective way. Because you all want the same thing, regardless of cultures, of politics, of religions, of institutions, of backgrounds, of socio-economics. …
When you prod the hearts of humanity, what they want is the fulfillment of their potential and that is to be Love.
That is why there are so many mythologies, imageries, stories of what heaven is. Everyone is looking for a heaven — whether it is a place that is paved with golden streets or a place of oblivion, of sheer energy and sheer love; whether it is a place where you are reunited with those you cherish and those that you have never known, your guardian angels in form — everyone wants the same thing.
They project it to a future state not upon planet because they fear, and haven’t accepted, the leadership role that they can create that heaven on Earth right now. That is the meaning of Nova Earth: It is a physical reality where ascended beings of all stripes, colors, beliefs, preferences come together to create wondrous things, whether it is an institution or a structure or a building or a family. …
Now, what do we need in terms of co-creating with you, our beloved partners? What do we need in terms of going forth? We need each of you to declare yourselves, not in abrasive, aggressive, egoic ways. That would simply be re-anchoring the old third, and that is the last thing, above or below, that is desired.
But we need you to begin to create what you know, each and every day, in that day, in that framework, in the week, in the month, in the years ahead, what are you capable of bringing forth? What is it in your mastery that you have brought to Earth and perhaps have been ignoring out of fear or trepidation? What talent is it that you have that truly contributes? Because that is what leadership is, it is your contribution of stepping forth.
So, on whose authority do you assume this leadership role? My beloved friends, on your sovereign right as Gaians upon the planet charged with the responsibility and the joy of creating Nova Earth. (4)
