In ancient times, sages would have fasted for long periods of time to be graced with a vision of the Divine Mother – or a word from her.
Today, in this generation, she speaks through numerous channels. Never have we had such unhindered contact with her. In 2014, on An Hour with an Angel, I asked her what accounts for this. Here is her reply:
The Divine Mother: My Desire is that Every Being on the Planet Falls in Love,” channeled by Linda Dillon, Sep. 26, 2014, http://goldenageofgaia.com/2014/10/03/divine-mother-my-desire-is-that-every-being-on-the-planet-falls-in-love.
Steve Beckow: Ancient sages would have fasted for a month to hear what you just said. And here we are, everyone who wishes, listening to you on the radio. I can guess at the answer, but here’s the question. What is the significance of us being able to hear you like this with such unrestricted access?
Divine Mother: It is a combination of what you can think of as spiritual evolution and my desire that you hear me in this way right now.
And you are correct. In older times, in ancient times, there was a stratified belief that one must cleanse themselves physically, spiritually, in order to hear my voice. Now, I will not nay-say any of these brilliant sages, for their hearts were pure. But even before they began the fast, their hearts were pure.
Now, let me use this example, because it is a timely and an important one. You have this gathering that I have organized coming up [Linda’s Lake Tahoe gathering]. Ten years ago, I would have asked all the participants to fast for at least a day, or preferably for 48 hours prior to receiving the activations, to truly be in a place of somewhat altered consciousness in order to receive.
Now, whether it was a thousand years ago or ten years ago or last year, it is not that the heart is not pure. What the fasting does — and it is the same as, in some ways, retreat, and very often we have recommended that these two go hand-in-hand — it is to take your mind off of the physical.
So it is not that the purity of your being is at question. It is the removal of yourself from what you think of as the habits or the ritual of feeding your body, paying attention to the externals, and quieting the mind and the soul to simply receive.
Now, am I asking that of you? No. Is it an excellent practice? Yes. When Yeshua was in form on planet, on planet Gaia, he would go off. You think you know of one situation, but this was a regular occurrence, and it has been for mystics throughout time. He would go off and fast and pray, for 2 days, for 20 days, for 40 days.
But what he was doing was not merely entering into a sacred space to hear me, but getting away from the hubbub, from the busy-ness, from people tugging on his sleeve, to enter into the quiet, to replenish and listen. And the listening, the quiet is essential to divine union.
Now, is the union constant? Of course it is. But what we are asking is for you to bring your awareness, the totality of your awareness, to this union. And you can’t do that driving a car or feeding the kids, or shopping at Walmart, or engaging in war, or working on Wall Street.
What you do is you fortify the union so that as you go to do those things you are fortified, equipped, filled, renewed energetically. You take vitamins and supplements. You drink power drinks and green drinks. But you do not always fill yourself with the most essential energy. And that is the love. That is what is going to keep you going.
I’m not suggesting not to attend to your body, because as important as fasting and retreat are, it is equally important to honor your vessel — program your water, program your food, bless your food, cook with love, work with love. But the starting point is to take time to be in union.
Now, why can you hear me this way? Beloveds, I have been telling you, Michael has been telling you, Sanat Kumara has been informing you that you are flying in and out of the ascension portal. Many of you are firmly anchored in the higher dimensions.
You can hear me because you have decided to anchor, because you are anchored in a higher vibration and because I declare it; because this notion that you are not worthy unless you undergo enormous preparation, that you cannot hear me, that you are not worthy to hear me … that is not so. I have always, since the very beginning — which you have no concept of — I have spoken to you. That is why my vibration, my voice is so familiar. It is why you yearn for it.
It is necessary for you to know this, to accept your value and worth. There are some of you who would say, “If I was in a crowd and the President was there, I would never simply go up and speak to him” — Secret Service aside. And I would say to you, “But, child, why would you not gift him with your grace? Why would you not reassure him that he is loved and supported and that his star family acknowledges him?”
