Written before posting Patricia Diane Cota Robles’s Ascension narrative.
“The truth of who I am [is the] I AM Presence,” Archangel Uriel told us in 2017. (1) But what is the “I am Presence”?
So far I haven’t seen a really definitive discussion of it. I haven’t known what to make of the phrase until very recently.
Most sources simply refer to it or relate one fact about it. So all we can offer is the few facts we have – in this and one or two future articles on the subject.
Archangel Michael explains that “your own conscious I AM Presence [is] an individualized facet of the Creator.” (2)
If it’s an individualized facet of the Creator, then it must be part of the illusion. The Creator is indivisible, One without a second. Where it fits in in the map of the heavens is unknown to me, but there are levels beyond it.
Even our Self, Christ, or Atman is illusory. There’s a wonderful Biblical passage about Christ bending the knee to the Father and handing back to him everything that was ever given to him (including individuation), that the One might become All in all.
That describes the extinction of the last vestiges of individuation and ultimate ascension as the One. Only the One is beyond illusion.
Is the I Am Presence another way of saying the Self? I don’t think so.
Michael told me once that the watcher is the Self, or Christ or Atman. Here he is:
Steve: Always there is something that is aware, always, always aware, something that never ceases to be aware. That aware part of me focuses on the mind, or focuses on me, or the higher self… What IS that part of me?? Is it the Atman?
Archangel Michael: It is your very soul
SB: Now is that the Atman or beyond the Atman?
AAM: No, it is your Atman.
SB: That is a question I have had for decades! Thank you for settling that for me. (3)
The I Am Presence is represented as being on a loftier dimension than my everyday consciousness, higher than the Higher Self.
It’s represented as being somehow separate from me until we “conjoin.” It remains a mystery to me.
Archangel Gabrielle tells us that “your I AM Presence [is] the greater eternal part of you that illuminates your Soul’s journey through life.” (4)
The soul, the watcher – the Self/Christ/Atman – is always right here, right now, looking out from these eyes. I’ve had numerous minor experiences of it – glimpses is the best word.
The I Am Presence is depicted as being outside of me but I know the soul, which is more refined than the I Am Presence, as being “inside” of me.
This is a paradox. It results in cognitive dissonance and, if left alone to work itself out, can result in a paradigmatic breakthrough. How can my I Am Presence be outside of me when I know my soul is inside?
Cognitive dissonance can lead to realization.
