I’d like to share those with you here.
Before we turn to Ascension itself, many of us have been exhausted a good deal of the time over the last year or so. I asked Archangel Michael about it and he said it was part of the process of letting go of the old Third. It included baggage from all other lifetimes.
Soon the discussion became much broader than simple exhaustion and all of what he said is relevant to this pre-Ascension time.
Steve Beckow: I need to ask you about the exhaustion I’ve felt lately.
Archangel Michael: Yes. It is the feeling of releasing what you have carried around for centuries and centuries and thousands of years. It’s the sense of being so exhausted with the old reality that it simply feels, at times, overwhelming. And it is a feeling that you have need to simply ― you cannot fight it any longer. You cannot top off your wellspring, as it were. It is a matter of surrendering the old and then gently, softly, embracing the new.
SB: How long will this process take, Lord?
AAM: Do you mean how long will it take until you feel anchored in the new?
You will be going through a feeling of euphoria. You will be going through a feeling that perhaps you are not fully anchored. You will be going through even some feelings of disassociation, of not knowing or really caring about what is going on around you. But that will not be a permanent state of being. Already you are feeling more deeply within your body. So, it is simply a period of adjustment. It’ll take about a month.
Allow it to take place. As we say, it is not something you can really physically, emotionally or mentally ― or spiritually, for that matter ― fight. It is something that you have invited in to begin to allow this process of engagement, as it were.
So, when you are exhausted, rest; when you are blissful, enjoy it; when you are feeling full of energy to do, then do. But this adjustment will not be difficult, it will just be different than what you have experienced to date.
SB: All right. And how will I know that the process has ended? What significant milestone will I be able to recognize that says, okay, this part now is over; time to get back to work and the rest?
AAM: The feeling that you wake up not only rested, but blissful; that the, what you have thought of as challenges, as troubles ― it is not that they disappear, but they do not weigh you down; that you have the energy to take on whatever tasks at hand you choose, but that you do not feel burdened, that you simply feel that you are doing almost without doing. It does not feel like a sense of disengagement, but rather higher engagement. (1)
I have moments like these but I cannot say that the state is stable. However I’m sure it will be after Ascension.
Let’s turn now to look at Ascension itself.
Ignition is First
Last year at this time, he discussed the stages of Ascension.
First comes what he calls ignition or the snap, which we now are hearing will happen on Sept. 28, 2015.
Then, in 2017, comes a mass enlightenment which he agreed was equivalent of seventh-chakra enlightenment, called Brahmajnana by Easterners and God-Realization by Westerners.
Some time later comes the liberating experience of consciousness in Sahaja Samadhi. This is the stage that translates into freedom from birth and death, moksha, etc.
Brahmajnana is a temporary heart opening; Sahaja is a permanent.
The discussion began with me asking him when Ascension would happen.
Archangel Michael: It is already under way. You are feeling it. You are asking for the snap?
SB: Yes, the ignition.
AAM: The humans are not yet fully ready.
SB: Okay. That’s good. But Matthew seemed to imply it wasn’t going to happen until 2017. Is that the case?
AAM: That will be what you can think of as phase two, when the full awareness is anchored within everybody.
SB: So, now, the full awareness is Sahaja Samadhi.
AAM: Well, it won’t be that extreme. But it will be what you think of as your golden age.
SB: Right. Is it an enlightenment…
SB: So is it Brahmajnana?
SB: Oh! 2017 will be Brahmajnana. When will Sahaja occur?
AAM: Shortly thereafter.
SB: Aha! Well, I’ll be darned. So ignition is going to be fairly soon. Is that correct?
AAM: Ignition is well underway. Think of it, you are on the launchpad.
SB: Okay. Very good. (2)
So Ascension has three stages: (1) ignition, which is entry into the first subplane of the Fifth Dimension but is not as extensive an experience of enlightenment as Brahmajnana is; (2) Brahmajnana in 2017; and (3) Sahaja Samadhi “shortly thereafter.”
