On Monday’s An Hour with an Angel, Geoff West spoke to Archangel Michael about twin flames, twin rays, soul mates and soul families. Much here was totally new to me. Thank you to Ellen for transcribing.
Next week is Ashtar to discuss plans, planning, protocol and other subjects necessary to be known before we begin to mingle with our space family.
An Hour with an Angel, April 16, 2012, with Archangel Michael
GD: Hello, and welcome to An Hour with an Angel, with Linda Dillon, the channel for the Council of Love, and Geoffrey West of Greenprint for Life. I’m GD. Our guest today is Archangel Michael. So with that, I’ll pass it on to you, Geoffrey.
Geoffrey West: And thank you very much, Graham, and welcome back, dear and precious brothers and sisters.
[Invocation not transcribed]
Tonight we welcome back Archangel Michael.
Archangel Michael: Welcome, greetings. I am Michael, archangel of love, warrior of peace, brother of blue. And yes, I am glad that you invoke the blue flame of peace, for the more that each one of you does this, the stronger the flame grows within you and within the collective as well.
Understand that peace is raging across your planet and within each of your hearts right now. It is not simply a thought pattern any longer, it is a deep desire, it is a yearning that you are responding to, it is that sense of belonging and being where you have need to be, not only in the greater unfoldment, but, dear heart, within your own unfoldment; for there cannot be a disconnect between the two, for that is a great deal of what we will speak about tonight. It is unity, connectedness and balance.
A long time ago, my beloved sister Gabrielle indicated to you all that what you need to return home is love, trust and forgiveness; unity, connectedness and balance. It is not a long list. Now, many of you in the work of your journey thus far, have truly, diligently, honorably worked on clearing and invoking and becoming love, trust and forgiveness.
Now you move into the time of connectedness, unity and balance. These cannot be broken apart; they are like molecules that are linked together eternally. So, we tell you this simply that you know, that you are aware of what you are working on, what you are bringing forth, not only for your beloved self, but for the collective as well. Very often, when you have been clearing something—in the old days, as we would call it—we would say, “Well, that is your issue.” You people would say, “Oh, no, I am clearing for somebody else.” And it is not so. If there is not a charge of that energy deep within you, then it would have nowhere to connect to.
So understand, when things come up that threaten your sense of ultimate peace, that it is a gift, and it is a gift for you to let go of what is not of wholeness, what is not of balance. Now you have moved into a new time, a new era, your era of Ascension, and it is a time when you are truly are clearing, are working, are undertaking for the collective. But, dear heart, you are also doing it for your sacred self. Never has it been our intention, or the intention of the Mother/Father/One, that you exclude yourself from any of this work, from any of this process.
So, know that. Your participation is key, because you are precious. You are valued. You are loved. You are trusted. You are part of the whole. So we proceed together, hand in hand, arm in arm, heart in heart. So, let us begin.
GW: Thank you, Michael. Several of our listeners have written to me expressing a deep interest in the issue of soul-mates and twin-flames. And having recently learned the name of my twin-flame, this topic is of interest to me personally, so I would like to learn and share more on this particular topic.
I feel it appropriate to begin by clearing up what I believe to be a misinterpretation of the word soul-mate. Many use this word to reflect the partner that they are seeking who shares all the same values, ideas, beliefs and interests that they share. It’s my understanding that a soul-mate is actually one who may not have any of the above, and they are actually the angels who push our buttons the most and force us into our greatest learning and experience of ourselves, if one chooses it. Could you please correct me, if I’m wrong?
AAM: Yes, I will correct you! It is both. Let us put it this way. A soul-mate is a being, a soul, that has connected with you deeply, both on this side, when you are out of form, and has chosen to reincarnate with you during each and every lifetime that you have encountered each other. I do not mean that you reincarnate together each and every time, but that you have chosen to be together during a certain lifetime.
Let us think of this … and we tend to use the image of circles very often. In the core circle, in the nucleus, there is you, your twin-flame, and what you think of as your guardian angel, your guides. In the next circle there is a circle that you would think of as your soul family, those that are of similar lineage, heritage, ray, vibration. But also, to make it very simple, these are the ones you love, passionately, deeply, and that you have traveled with again and again and again. Now, think of the next circle, and this is the circle of your soul-mates. These are the ones that you also love and cherish when you are on this side.
Prior to your return into form, whether it is on Earth or elsewhere, there is always a great deal of discussion about who will go. Now, very often with soul family, it is, “Well, if you’ll go, I’ll go,” “If you’re going, I’m going,” “You do not travel without me.” With soul-mates, there is a degree of that, but you look at the lifetime and what you wish to achieve, both in terms of your own incarnation and each other, but also the grander plan, the unfoldment of the Mother or the Divine’s Plan, and you agree that you will go together, and that you will play certain roles. And this has been particularly true within the realm of what we would refer to as the old 3rd dimension or the old 3rd dimensional paradigms.
Sometimes those soul-mates are your greatest enemies, as you have put it, those who push your buttons, because they are what we would call a negative image or a negative mirror. They show you—very clearly—what it is you need to work on, what it is you need to clear or address, either for yourself or for your family, for your soul family, or for the collective at large. That is why we have often said—and Yeshua has often said—to love your enemies, to love those you think are different from you. That is part of the diversity and the gift.
Soul-mates also are a part of those that you surround yourself with, those that you believe are like-minded, like-hearted, those that you like to form friendships with, often that you will choose to enter into partnership or relationship with, sometimes into sacred union —and we do differentiate between what we would call partnership or relationship, or what you would even call marriage, and what we would call even higher or more divinely guided, which is a sacred union.
So your best friend can be a soul-mate. It can also be a member of your soul family. And very often there is a blurring of those two lines. If you thought of the circle as a spiral, or if you thought of it as one circle, your soul family would be very close to you in that circle, then your soul-mates, and then those who are still part of the unfoldment, but more a part of the collective—you may or may not have ever encountered them before. But there is still a soul agreement that you will be on planet during these times with those beings.
So a soul-mate can be either a positive or a negative influence in your life, or a mirror. It can be someone that is exceptionally close to you or it can be someone that you disdain. We have always encouraged you, if you feel friction with someone, if you feel an instant distance or a dislike, then look at it, because this is a gift, this is a gift for you not only to perhaps clear something with someone that you have traveled with before, that you may have an agreement with to clear something with, but you also are being given an opportunity to look in that mirror and see, “What is it about myself that I am not overly joyous at discovering?”
So, it is both, dear heart. Does this clarify?
When you meet somebody and you know them for five minutes, and you know then that you love them, you share something much deeper: it is the recognition not only of someone that you have traveled with before, but someone who is a soul-mate, someone who is part of your soul family. That is how you recognize one another. It is that almost instantaneous connection.
Now, twin flames is another area that we should discuss—or can discuss, let us put it that way. It is an area where you have connected with one…. Think of this in the way that you would think of twins. Think of it sometimes where you have the opening of identical twins, and so you have a nucleus that fissions. So you are both part of the same light, the same hope, the same mission, the same vision, the same energy.
It is extremely rare that one incarnates into physical form, particularly in what we would say is old Earth, with one’s twin flame. That situation when that occurs is that the mission is of such magnitude that it is necessary. In many ways, you may think, or feel, that your twin flame is like a guardian angel, and they hold the space for you to go forward and assume a form and incarnation to do the work that you have chosen to do.
So it is the other half of you, not the higher self—do not mistake it that way—but the other half. And often you tend to think of it in terms of gender, but that is a human way to conceive of it. And you also understand that you have incarnated as male, female, in every life-form. So you may keep that distinction, but understand that you have all done everything. Do you have a preferred form? Generally, yes. But that is the way it operates.
Now, your twin flame is that closest part; in some ways you always think of your twin flame as almost being part of your heart. Many of you have had a face, either in dream or when you close your eyes, and you see that face, you see those eyes, and that is the picture, the energy of your twin, because that is how close they are to you. No, they are not your primary angel, but often they will introduce themselves as part of your circle of guides, guardians.
Now, for many of you also, during this time of change upon the planet, many of you are discovering that your twin flame is in fact a star being, that they have incarnated and that they are hovering, literally, above Earth or on your—what you would think of as—your home planet. And this creates a yearning, but it also creates an awareness of where they are and how you are working together. It is a piece of information about your own mission and purpose, and of course their mission and purpose as well.
We would like to talk—and I am suggesting this to you, Geoff—the role that twin flames play in the forming of relationship, partnership and sacred union, as well as in the birthing and the selection of children as well, but we do not wish to jump the gun on you. We want to make sure that our explanations are clear and concise, because this is so important to the human heart, to that sense of connection and unity. And it is a connection that we fully understand, for twin flames are part of a universal construct—let us put it that way.
GW: Thank you, Michael, and thank you for giving me the opportunity to clarify, because this brings up a question which has recently come to me. I’ve had a dear friend of mine, one whom I consider very wise and enlightened, confuse me with the introduction of yet another term, a twin ray. Is there a difference between a twin flame and that of a twin ray?
AAM: There is a difference between a twin flame and a twin ray. The twin ray is part of your soul family. The twin ray is one—it is not like a twin flame at all. So, understand this, because the ray—your composition, your light, your love, your molecules, they are literally identical in your—well, not exactly, but as close as it can be—in your twin flame. It is your divine complement. Your twin ray is someone who is of your ray, and the similarities are very close. It is more like a matter of being of the same soul family. So it is like a brother or a sister or a cousin who genetically looks just like you. But the closeness, the degrees of separation are different—let us put it that way.
So, if one—and as you know, I am partial to blue – but there are billions of beings upon your planet, just your planet, Terra Gaia, at this time that are of the blue ray. Now, think in terms of what your ability to see and perceive color is, and think of the range of how many blues there are, from the palest, washed out blue summer sky to the turquoise, to the vibrant blues, to the royal blue that I claim, to the Universal Mother’s blue, to the twilight blue, to the midnight blue. All of these are blue ray.
Now, within that, even within your sacred self—yes, when we look at you and we see your flame, that is consistent in terms of what you as human beings would perceive as a color. Now, for us when we look at it, we see an energy pattern and a field. We hear sound, scent, song, so we see much more than you do. But even within that range of color, during any course of a day, you may transmute yourself from the palest blue to the midnight blue that is almost black. But your core color, your core flame, your core ray does not vary according to your aura, to your mood, to what is happening, to where your vibration or frequency is.
Your flame is unique. But within that band there are those that are identical to you, that are so close—and certainly with human eyes—the blue would appear exactly the same. But if you were to look inside of that, where you would find the twin ray is also not only in the vibration, in the frequency, in what you would think of as soul signature, but the similarity in sound, in fragrance, in scent, in song. So, it is looking very much like a DNA map. So, that is where the similarities, and that is where the term comes from.
Very often—but particularly now as people are Ascending, but even in the past—when you have had groups of people that have chosen to leave the planet, and they seem completely unassociated, very often they are of identical rays.
There are many forms of connection that you are just beginning to discover, and we are delighted that you are asking.
GW: So, as you have said, it’s not common for twin flames to incarnate at the same time on Gaia, or at least in the same place on the planet. And you have said that it is like finding a lost part of oneself. At this particular time, is this beginning to change? Are twin flames beginning to come together at this time for the purposes of Ascension? And is it important for Ascension to occur that twin flames be united?
AAM: No. Let us be very clear about that. Because it would be very discouraging for many to think that if they did not find their twin flame or connect with their twin flame, that they were not on their Ascension journey and path. So no, that is not true. But yes, there are more and more twin flames that are discovering each other.
There is an expression that this channel has when one discovers their twin flame, and it is incarnated in close proximity, particularly if it is relationship with their twin flame. What she does is she immediately offers them her sympathy and condolences. This is your cue to laugh, dear heart! She offers it because being with your twin flame is not only like holding your sacred self, it is also confronting every shadow, every part of yourself, so there is nowhere to hide. If there are issues, or debris to be cleared, then it will be front and center, it will be immediate. And if something should arise in the interim, it will not hide away in the darkness of a corner, because your twin flame is your mirror.
When you have worked through what we would call human issues—personality, ego issues, emotional debris—then it will be the most magnificent bonding that you can ever have, in or out of human form. Because that is your other. But do not assume that you embrace each other and that it is infinite bliss. It is infinite bliss, but only when you have let go of all of the illusions of who you might be, when you have fully embraced the truth of yourself.
That is why some of the delay, for those of you who have twin flames who are star beings, either on board ship or home planet, because you are still working on the full embrace of you. And that is necessary, that is part of the work that you are undertaking, the love work for your Ascension, for your completion of this phase of your journey. And so you are preparing; it is the precursor to joining in that wholeness with your twin.
So, you have decided that you are not encountering them beforehand, but you are doing your work so that when you do come—and understand, if they have work or issues too, they are undertaking it—so, when you do come together, it will be that sacred union, it will be that divine union. So, if you feel disheartened sometimes that you are not with your beloved one, understand, you will be.
Now, most of you, the majority of you, your twin flame is with us on this side, in what you at right now think of as the unseen realm. But when you are looking for a partner—and we don’t mean just a relationship, but truly your partner—what you are innately doing—innately—is you are seeking for the qualities of your twin, your divine complement. And what is happening is that your twin is also assisting you, doing a great deal of behind-the-scenes work in helping you meet that divine partner, or divinely-orchestrated partner.
GD: I guess in terms of a 3D interpretation, if there is anything so terrifying yet so exciting all in one, perhaps this might very well be it. I think a lot of people might almost be terrified of having to meet all of the darkest aspects of themselves in a single instant.
AAM: And that is why . . . because of course when you are home, none of that darkness exists, none of those shadows are there. These are simply things that you have accumulated during the journey. But yes, it is absolutely terrifying. Relationships, partnership is one of the most terrifying experiences that you have upon the planet. That is why so many turn and run away. It is also the most beautiful.
So, you are absolutely correct, Geoff. It is a process of becoming. And when you become in sacred union, in the physical form. . .. Let us give you a vision. It is not a singular affair. So, you are looking for your sacred partner, and your twin flame on this side is assisting you, working with a multitude of variables, to help you locate and meet with someone who is a very close match. At the same time, the person that you are encountering, their twin flame is doing exactly the same thing. So it is not a party of two, it is a party of four. And then when you add in your guardian angel, and the ascended ones who also want things to go forward, it truly is a family affair. It is magnificent!
When you come together, there are varying levels of unity that you are presented with during lifetimes. One of the questions we often hear is, “Why did I choose my family? What was I thinking of?” But the family, the family that you have chosen to incarnate with, in a universal way, is always the opportunity for love, for growth, to bring love to that group and to receive love. It is sad—a term you don’t hear me use very often—when that does not take place, when that support and love and growth and expansion does not take place between parents or between siblings, because that is a level of unity, an opportunity of love, similarly with your best friends, with what you would think of as your soul family.
This is a term that light-workers, love workers embrace and understand. This is another level of being able to truly embrace and go into love, and experience it in a different way. But when you enter into partnership, there is the opportunity to go forward and to expand that into what we refer to as sacred union. And that is beautiful, because it is terrifying, and it is exhilarating and blissful. Because it is the true embrace and love which, remember, has no conditions, no boundaries, no what-ifs, to truly come together in union, in a physical reality and in a soul reality, so that there is no separation.
It is the experience of love in physicality, which was the whole idea, the whole plan for the 3rd dimension. It was to know love and joy in form and in sacred union, in partnership. That is the opportunity. We see and we witness many, particularly at this time of change, breaking relationships and leaving relationships, and saying, “Well, this is holding me back, this is not for my highest good.”
But I ask of you, before you leave, look to each other, feel the love flow between you, and ask, “What else, what else does this mirror have to show me? What part of my heart do I need to open? What part am I not willing to look at? Am I not holding the deepest compassion?” Because if your partner looks or feels stuck, who can they turn to but you?
For you as well. We know many of you do not talk to your partners, your family, about your journey. Or when you do, you feel that sense of separation and hurt, as if you are being discredited. What we ask of you is take a step back, be the observer, and be the observer in love. And understand that your beloved one simply hasn’t seen what you see yet.
That is why you are the way-showers. That is why you are helping so many through the portal of Ascension. You’ve had a glimpse, or you are already there, or you are in process. They are not. So hold on to the love. Let go of that old, 3rd dimensional drama.
Of course they cannot hold you back. Otherwise, we say leave—gently, compassionately. But what we see is that this is for many of you yet a bigger opening to show what love really looks like, to practice love and compassion, to reach your hand out and lift them up. This is your mission and purpose.
Now, not to leave the matter of your twin, if you are having difficulty doing that, if you are having difficulty in your human relationship, in your partnership, in your marriage, if you are having difficulty in your family, ask your twin flame for help, because they know exactly not only what you are facing but what you need and what will work.
So, knowing and connecting with your twin is very important, because it is that support, it is that eternal, infinite support. And also, remember, you are giving them support. You may not realize that fully. You think, “Oh, here I am. I am in a human form.” But, dear heart, you are doing exactly what you have need to do, and that supports your twin. When you turn away from your mission and purpose, you turn away from your twin. And they will beckon you, they will call to you, and they will get your attention, no matter what.
GW: Within the time that we have left, I would certainly like to honor my brothers and sisters who have chosen relations that are of the same sex nature. You mentioned earlier that humans have a tendency to always want to think and categorize in terms of gender. How can a twin flame relation be explained—as quickly as possible—within the context of those currently choosing same sex relations?
AAM: It does not matter at all. I would suggest to you that most of you have been heterosexual, homosexual, lesbian—it does not matter! Love is love. And when you are in sacred union, or if you are with your twin in a same-sex relationship, if you have chosen to do that, it is because you are breaking some old paradigms of Earth that have been very rigid in terms of trying to define what love can look like, what it is permitted to look like.
Know: love takes all forms. And so for those who have chosen, and for those who have felt there was never a choice, other than to be in same-sex relationship, we support you, because love is love. And what you are doing is you are breaking the paradigms. That is part of your mission and purpose. And it is not to make an issue out of it. The whole point is that it is a non-issue. Far too much drama is given to this! So, understand, on another planets, in other realities, this is simply not an issue.
If you think of it, identical twins usually does mean same sex, dear heart. So do not quantify it this way. In fact, if anything, when you are in relationship and it is same sex, when you have reached the point of true union, the level of commitment is deep and profound, because you have paid very dearly in your society for these choices. And you have chosen to be true to love and true to yourself. We support this the same way we support every relationship, every opportunity to express and love.
GW: That’s wonderful, Michael. That’s certainly how I have attempted to explain and share, when I talk about love. And I certainly support that, and I honor all brothers and sisters in whatever expression of love that they choose. That is certainly the highest goal.
So, as twin flames reconnect at a 3D level, if they recognize the connection and they’re able top handle the intensity of this reconnection, how could we envision what a sacred union is? Or how might it take place? Is there a way to put that into a 3d perspective?
AAM: Yes, and understand a sacred union does not have to be with your twin flame, because many of you have entered into a sacred union. It is a union of full commitment. But where you see it with a twin flame, twin flames will always work together. And the mission and purpose of what they are doing on Earth at this time in conjunction merges.
One may play a greater supporting role, but they are bonded at such a deep level. So you will not find, for example, one working on Wall Street and the other being artist in California. That will not happen. They will be united in their mission and purpose. They will be as one. Of course, each expressing uniquely and individually. But it places the relationship. . .the sacred union places the relationship beyond the questions. It is, “We are together.” It is that declaration of love that you think of as romantic love. “I will love you completely forever no matter what. We are doing this together; this journey we are doing it together.”
So, the potential for creation—and what you see in sacred flame is just amplified—but that potential for creation is beyond anything that the human realm is, shall we say, used to at this time. Now, we are not suggesting that there are not many sacred unions, but it is being raised. Because your frequency, your vibration and your understanding of how to create is expanding and going forward.
You say, “How do I connect with my twin flame?” Go to your heart and simply ask. It is that simple. Just ask. Allow that face to appear. Allow that energy to brush by you. Allow that energy to be part of your life. Speak to each other every day, every hour. Call on each other, not only for help, but to share what you are thinking, what you are feeling, the way you would with someone that you would love in form as well.
GW: That sounds absolutely wonderful. And there’s certainly a lot of questions that could probably be continued at this point in time. We have I guess about five minutes left in the show, and perhaps I would like to use this remaining time just to change the topic a little bit and ask if there’s anything that you would like to share specifically in terms of any global events updates, any current news that you would like to address as far as what’s taking place at this time, to wrap up?
AAM: Yes, there is. Many of you have felt not only impatient, but a growing weariness. And there are many reports that you are reading in various media forums about what is transpiring with your star brothers and sisters, with the changes on Gaia, with the changing within your political, your monetary, your financial systems, global institutions. And that is all taking place.
But understand, much of what is taking place is done very quietly underneath the radar, not because it has need to be hidden, but because there is no need for the human collective to go into fear any more than they are or they have been. So that is important to understand.
The military all over your planet is shifting. And they are becoming, in many ways, a force of change, a force for the bringing to light and for protecting what changes need to take place in order for Ascension, human Ascension, to take place.
Your brothers and sisters of the stars, of UFOG, of the galactic [waves?], continue to be on high alert. There have been many sightings, and many of them are also as quickly hidden and covered up as they are revealed! It is very amusing, but do not lose heart, because they do not lose heart. They are not going anywhere.
And they continue to migrate, by the thousands, to Earth, through the portals that are open and available to them, to be on Earth in human for, or humanoid form, in order to assist with the human collective as landings take place.
So, things are progressing. They are progressing rapidly. Your monies, your financial systems, are rapidly changing. This is not a cause for panic or fear. This is not a cause to run out and change everything in your life. It is something to be aware of and to simply know. The changes are occurring smoothly. The whole idea is no upheaval, or as little upheaval as possible.
So do not react. Do not go into that place of being reactive. Remain either the observer or in proactive action, which means holding the light, speaking the light, being the light, and calming your fellow citizens of Earth.
Your shift is already underway. Many of you have felt the energetic changes in the past few weeks, particularly in the last few days. Anchor into Gaia, anchor into your heart. Do not let scenarios of past lives, of devastation, of annihilation, of imprisonment or torture come into you. Let all those memories go.
Again, if you have problems with that, if you are finding it difficult, call on your twin, your beloved twin flame. Call on me, call on your guides and guardians. Call on all of us. Use your sword to cut away, and use your other side of the sword to heal. And know that we are with you. We never leave your side.
Go in peace, dear heart. Farewell.
GW: Thank you very much, Archangel Michael. And with that we come to the end of another Hour with an Angel. Thank you for sharing your time with us, and we look forward to having you join us again next week. In light, love, and in service, farewell.
