What we’re saying here about love could also be said about any of the divine qualities. (1)
In past years, I’ve had brief experiences of peace, abundance, mastery, bliss, ecstacy, and exaltation and none of them was anything like I’d have thought they’d be if I had given the matter any thought. Which I did not until the moment I unexpectedly experienced them.
Just as one might find it difficult to imagine what true or unconditional love might feel like, so I never would have thought what peace felt like. And let me take that as an example to cover all instances.
I’ve told the story before that peace felt like granite, solid and substantial. I was surprised to hear Archangel Michael describe it as being like that, given that I’d described it that way to myself.
First let, me record the incident in which I experienced this higher-dimensional form of peace. I apologize for the length of the description, but I think it important.
“While lying down, I had an experience of watching my thoughts and feelings flow by me. Later, Archangel Michael, in a personal reading, told me that I was ‘interdimensionally travelling.’
“I felt as if I were on a train, watching it slowly leave the station and looking at the faces as they passed by. I suddenly saw a red-headed man who had remarkable composure. I was struck by it on a spiritual level and took a mental snapshot.
“As soon as the man was recognized, it was as if he shot an energetic dart at me. A bond was made.
“Immediately I found myself sinking into a deep, deep sense of peace…. I said to myself: ‘I know this depth of peace that this man has shown me. It’s the Natural Self.’
I ended up in a place that was absolutely solid. It was as if I were standing on a slab of granite. … I would have expected downy softness.
“The solidity of the ground under my feet probably reflected my own inner stability, which seems to be a gift of true peace when it becomes permanent.
“This peace passed understanding in the sense that the mind was so still I’d have to describe it as inactive, archived, taken offline. There was no such act as understanding going on because the mind was decommissioned.
“Of course the experience passed, as do all, short of Ascension.” (2)
Michael surprised me by describing peace as granite on several occasions. I don’t have the original comment from 2015, but I have four from later:
2017: “In coming to this place of peace and of knowingness, of the substantial nature of who you really are, what you are doing – and this is why I want to talk about it – is the anchoring, like your granite, of what the Mother has made, what the Father has made.” (3)
2017: “This day, this night, this afternoon, I have given you – I have activated peace within you. Receive it, sweet ones. I do this on behalf of our beloved Sacred Divine Mother. And, I do this on behalf of each of you. Treasure this and allow this granite to blossom.” (4)
2018: “There are so many divine qualities that do feel amorphous, light, airy, like a spring day. And yet peace (you have this expression), you can take it to the bank. It feels like ballast. It feels like granite because it is solid. And dare I say immutable. That is why I continue to keep emphasizing that that peace [is] within, that rock-solid granite [lies] within.” (5)
2017: “So, when you think of things that you should do, are supposed to do, might do, and it doesn’t ignite that fire of excitement, and that granite of peace, then you are being given an important piece of information, which is ‘look elsewhere.’ Is that clear?” (6)
But only once one has experienced this deep sense of peace. If you’d have asked me beforehand whether peace would feel like granite, I’d have laughed.
Just as in the case of love, which didn’t feel at all like what I might have thought it would before experiencing it, so peace surprised me as well.
So we stand to be surprised when we experience any of the divine qualities. They’re not simply more love or peace; they’re altogether different and unexpected.
We’re all going to be Connecticut Yankees in King Arthur’s Court: finding ourselves in an environment which, at first blush, will be totally unfamiliar, and feeling our way along.
This is the new world which we stand on the threshold of discovering. And these are the conditions we’ll meet when we start to build Nova Earth. We’ll be aided by the divine qualities in ways we cannot, at this moment, predict.
(1) Love is not seen as a divine quality but as the Divine itself. The divine qualities are seen as the forms that love takes.
