I wrote the following article as a footnote to “No Need to Administer an Organization.” (1) But then I realized that the subject deserved separate treatment.
The discussion began over a comment that Archangel Michael made to me on May 27, 2016 in a personal reading through Linda Dillon:
“You are the vision holder. You are the bringer of inspiration. You are the one who is the catalyst and the vehicle, but you are not an administrator.” (2)
“You are not an administrator.” I could have said: Is Archangel Michael telling me what to do? Is there not a universal law of freewill? What gives here anyways?
If I’m to answer that question, I have to do it in somewhat of a roundabout way.
My relationship with the one I call “Lord” began after I chose to see a medium. I chose to see a medium because I met my twin flame in a lucid dream in Nov. 2010 and a friend was having readings with a medium named Linda Dillon. At that moment, I did not know who that woman in my dream was and, believe me, I wanted to know. I’d been working with mediums since 1975 so it was a natural response to consult one.
I booked a session with Linda and Anastara, my twin flame, came.
I was so enthralled that I booked a second reading. This time, Linda said, “Someone wishes to speak to you,” and it was Archangel Michael. Well, I was a little non-plussed. Excuse me? Say what?
In the conversation that unfolded, I was a largely unconscious partner for years, but there and then began a dance, with AAM leading and me following as best I could.
It’s been very gentle but elaborate. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it and benefited from it.
He has at times piqued my curiosity by describing some of my past lives. He’s told me things about myself that have disoriented me and really obliged me to stretch and expand. And all the time, he fed me steady encouragement and explained to me what progress was being made and what was coming next.
On the financial side, he’s led me up hill and down dale, since Nov. 2011, first on Pre-NESARA funds and now on the Reval. He’s acknowledged doing some things to keep my interest up and others to raise core issues to the surface to be removed.
I trust him more and more as each year passes, which underpins the dance. No trust, no dance.
Now I need to digress and get roundabout.
In Hindu wisdom literature, there are several ways in which people relate to the Divine: as friend, lover, servant, parent, child, etc.
I am by nature a servant of the Divine and so I see myself as serving Archangel Michael. He, for his part, repeatedly stresses our friendship and co-creative partnership. He’s approaching me as a friend and colleague, not as lord and master.
I’m gradually inching my way along to that. It goes against my servant’s nature. It seems like sacrilege.
He’s never ventured one inch from the very center of my comfort zone for as long as I’ve been known him (in this lifetime). And now here I’m being asked to get friendly with the Divine, which is at the edge of my comfort zone. It’s a stretch for me.
Since he knows all my thoughts and feelings, I factor in that he must already know I trust him.
A few years back, he would never have wanted to sound as if he were telling me what to do. He’d stress the need to respect the freewill of others. And together we’ve seen many instances in which people have exercised their free will to leave collegial and intimate relationships that were wanted and needed. Many disappointments, but he always accepts them as legitimate freewill choices.
Now however it’s as if he knows that I’ve reached the point in our relationship where I want to solicit and wait upon his counsel and leadership. Otherwise, I don’t think he – careful as he is – would have spoken that way.
But there’s more going on behind the internal scenes in the last reading.
For instance, you see that the opening statement he makes is at least 20 minutes long and touches on matters like the Reval that I have not yet asked a question on.
Previously he would have said that he did not want to take away from the time devoted to my questions. Something shifted in that last reading and I haven’t fully plumbed what it was.
He may have wanted to say some things about the Reval and he knew I wouldn’t mind (in fact I’d be delighted).
But the use of twenty minutes of the reading for the discussion of public affairs was new – and most welcome. Look what a gold mine of information he provided us with. He warned me that some day I’d run out of questions. If this is where our discussions are to go, I’m very happy.
There was even more and I’m not going to touch on this next one except to point at it. Why not just give a talk on the Reval, perhaps followed by a talk on my health. Why work the two in so intricately that I couldn’t cite the one discussion without including the other? What work does that accomplish?
I’m not going to take the discussion further than that but I intuit that he’s definitely at work there. He’s dancing the dance. A year from now I’ll look back and say to myself: “That’s what he was doing.”
Particularly in the one-on-one, informal personal readings, Archangel Michael works – or dances – with the person who’ll allow it. But one has to look at long vistas – like years – to see his dance moves.
I’m totally fascinated watching him at work. And I’ve been so, so, so much benefited by it.
