And I’ve been watching myself to see how I adapt to a process whose only constant is change.
I’m a student of awareness, a person who regards his own internal states as a fit subject of observation, and a person who believes that the most enduring part of himself is his consciousness.
I’ve agreed with myself to observe my own states of consciousness and being over time as yielding the most valuable of results, among all things that I can do. And Archangel Michael has confirmed for me that this is part of my mission as recently as An Hour with an Angel, on Aug. 5, 2013 when he said:
“You are very good at expressing the shifts, the openings, the expansions, the questions, the doubts, on our platform [the Golden Age of Gaia]. And we thank you for this, because in this what you are doing is you are sparking the same awakening in others. You are also giving them permission to acknowledge their own process and shift.” (1)
It’s always wonderful when what one does turns out to be what’s needed! I’d be doing this anyways so that’s excellent!
So I’m here to watch how I adapt to the new at a time when all things seem new and to express what I find.
The way I move forward into and through the new is the same way the Allies moved forward on D-Day. I establish a beachhead of understanding, one thing that I sense to be true, one thing of which I’m certain, and then venture out from there into the unknown.
That doesn’t mean the thing I stand on is true, just that I sense it to be so and feel certain of it. It doesn’t mean that all people venture into the new in the same way. This is just the way I do it.
What I feel certain of at the moment is that we’re all of us engaged, willingly for the most part, but unwillingly for some, in a process of constant, continuous and gradual unfoldment. And knowing that provides both the ground I stand on and the platform for further movement out into the new.
Archangel Michael, in that same interview, implied that we’re in such a process when he said:
“You, my beloved friends, have been diligent in your work, diligent in your commitment of your hearts, your souls, your beings, your bodies, to go forward in this Ascension and this unfoldment of your plan and our plan within the greater plan.
“I say this, and I remind you of this, because we want you to know that your forward progress, your growth, is not only noted; it is celebrated, and we are proud of you — proud in the sense that you are brothers and sisters, colleagues, and fellow travelers.
“You are the masters who inhabit the planet of Gaia, who walk this beloved Earth in this period of miraculous change, and in a period of change that has never been experienced, on Gaia or elsewhere.” (2)
What he says here acknowledges this process of unfoldment we’re in and how it is the Divine Plan for us in this age.
Here and now, we ascend from the Third to the Fifth. But on other occasions we unfold into other dimensions. What’s common and a constant is the process of unfoldment itself. At this time it’s occurring rapidly and in a way that can be more easily experienced than at other times.
We call this process “Ascension.” Its main engine is the energies that are being beamed to us by higher-dimensional beings, which Matthew Ward described here:
“[Mother Earth’s] cry for help went out into the universe and instantly God authorized myriad spiritually advanced civilizations to respond by beaming their own vast light into Earth’s body.
“The massive infusion of light from those distant sources stabilized her orbit and enabled her to jar loose from negativity’s stranglehold, start to ascend out of deep third density and continue toward her ultimate destination in fifth density.” (3)
Archangel Michael described our unfoldment this way:
“You are dealing with the fading hologram of the old third while anchoring and embracing the reality of your sweet selves in the fifth.
“Now, we know this is not always easy, but it is your diligence, your commitment that brings you to this point of change. You do not always see, or, more importantly, acknowledge the change.
“And one of the things I would like you to do is to begin to more clearly and vociferously acknowledge the changes that each of you are experiencing, within and without.” (4)
Chief among the changes – for me anyways – is the expansion in my contact with the one who changes. When so many features of the landscape are new, what’s thrown up into sharp relief is the changer/changee. I am both the one who changes (changee) and the one who commands the response to change (changer).
Who decides what changes I make? Who is the authority here? Whom do I listen to? In the process of enquiring further, I become increasingly aware of the subject and object of all change: me.
I am not the energy of change – well, at least not that I’m aware of. But I am both the subject and the object of change.
The emergence of increasing clarity around this “I” turns out to be the most significant aspect of this continuous and continual process we call “Ascension.”
In fact it’s the most important result of the whole unfoldment we call “life,” not just this one movement from the Third to the Fifth.
The emerging contact with myself, the unfolding knowledge of me – and the same could be said for you, I think – is both the result of this continuous unfoldment we’re in and its reward. All things seem to ride on it. “It feels right,” as Archangel Michael said in his interview. (5)
And the farther this process of unfoldment that we call “Ascension” goes, the deeper and more substantial my contact will be with myself. That also “feels right.”
Once I make deeper contact with myself, I’m induced to throw everything else over and consolidate it. Having sensed the treasure in the field, so to speak, I tend to sell all I have and buy the field. I do this primarily by meditation.
Moving ahead by this process of sensing and internal observation, I establish a beachhead of understanding in this new and constantly-changing world. I sense that I’m headed in the right direction.
And I’m eager for more, not of stuff, not of things, but of contact with this self that is changing, in this constant process of unfoldment, and commanding the response to change.
