In my reading with him on Jan. 18, 2020, Archangel Michael returned at my request to the question of unfoldment.
What he said on this occasion was enough to carry me from simple intellectual knowledge of the reasons for its slow pace to realization (though minor) of what the plan for me is.
I’ll discuss his comments tomorrow. But before I do, I’d like to review what Michael and the Mother have previously said.
The reason I discuss it here is that the same circumstances may apply to many lightworkers who’ve agreed to lead in some area. Their unfoldment may also be toned down or moderated so as not to take them out of synch with those they have agreed to serve or serve with.
This is an intimate subject for me and I share it only to make the point that we lightworkers have already ascended in other lifetimes. I’m going to quote those discussions at length because I think others may find themselves reflected in them.
We’ve agreed to don the Third-Dimensional body to assist with this Ascension. Therefore we don’t have to worry that we’ll miss out: we’ll return to our ascended state when we finish our service here.
If we weren’t ascended already, we’d be concerned with our own Ascension and unable to focus on service. If we’d ascended already, we’re more likely to show up willing to serve, in my opinion.
The process of understanding why I was being held back (that was my thought about it) began when I started to suspect my spiritual experiences were being truncated.
When I asked Archangel Michael and the Divine Mother about it, they agreed that the experiences were toned down.
Michael first acknowledged truncating my experience in 2012. That year I had an experience that ordinarily would have been Brahmajnana. (1) But it lacked the dimension of bliss and so was simply like watching a movie. (2) I asked him about it:
Steve: [Emptiness of mind] was followed next by what appeared to be the kundalini completing its circuit at the seventh chakra. Is that in fact what happened?
Archangel Michael: Yes. … That is what you did.
Steve: Hmm, interesting! … I felt that it had been muted, toned down.
AAM: When you use the term “dramatic enlightenment experiences” [as I did earlier], you are talking about Nirvana. You are talking about the unity of all with One.
This is not to say that you will not experience that, but you cannot ― well, you can if you wish; if it is the choice to – simply remain in that state of unity, of One [and] be fully conscious and in service, in action. (3)
OK. I have now gotten at an intellectual level that I cannot serve and live in the state that Brahmajnana brings on. Mine isn’t deep knowledge yet, not deep enough to motivate action. But I’ve only gotten the matter intellectually.
So, it is a toning down, if anything. It really is the middle ground. It is the intersection. It is the place where the third is not a memory, but it is not a burden. And you see the clarity of the old dis-illusions, and you see with clarity the sense of oneness.
You know that enlightenment is right there in front of you. It is yours to access. But if you are in service, you will not choose to live there. …
You can think of it as keeping two feet firmly on the ground. (4)
So I now had confirmation that this experience at least had been toned down.
The only part of what he said that really sank in was “you can think of it as keeping two feet firmly on the ground.” OK, I added to my understanding the fact that Michael wants me to keep both feet on the ground. That was helpful. But still the whole matter had not completely clicked. It had not reached realization.
Tomorrow I’d like to watch the process deepen as the Divine Mother acknowledges truncating a fourth-chakra enlightenment experience.
(Concluded in Part 2, tomorrow.)
(1) Brahmajnana or God-Realzation occurs when the kundalini reaches the seventh chakra. It’s also called kevalya nirvikalpa samadhi and is the culminating experience of the Third-Dimensional seven-chakra system.
It’s not Ascension, which is a full and permanent heart opening called sahaja samadhi, beyond the seven-chakra system. Buddha called it arahantship, short of Buddhahood.
(2) Bliss lifts us up, making realization possible and deepening the realization the more bliss is experienced.
