In researching the Divine Plan, I came across Archangel Michael in 2013 explaining that our straight-line view of evolution is not correct.
We have a great deal more choice in the process than is suggested by this view.
And of course this is borne out by accounts of our meetings with our advisers to plan out our next incarnation. (1)
“Archangel Michael: The First Form You Assumed was Angelic,” July 7, 2013, at http://goldenageofgaia.com/ascension-as-of-2012/what-role-are-the-angels-playing/archangel-michael-the-first-form-you-assumed-was-angelic/ .
Steve Beckow: Pseudo-Dionysius, who had as much knowledge of angels as any human that I know of, said things like:
“I do not need to remind you … of the fact that because of [Jesus’] generous work for salvation he himself entered the order of revealers and is called the ‘angel of great counsel.’ Indeed, when he announced what he knew of the Father, was it not as an angel?” (2)
And Rumi — again, whom we regard as very enlightened — talked about how he progressed from the mineral kingdom to the plant kingdom, to the animal kingdom, to the human and that he would have one more birth as an angel and then he’d be no more. (3)
So, we’ve kind of been schooled in this view of spiritual evolution, and to accept it is regarded as an advancement in knowledge, so to speak. So now you’re saying, “Well, no, that isn’t so,” not quite so, anyways.
Archangel Michael: It is not quite right. And one of the things that you have need to understand is that what you are thinking of as evolution assumes that you are having to earn your way back.
So what it does is it puts you in the categorization that some are lesser and some are greater. And this tendency of the human beings — and we are not dismissing your sages at all; but what we are having, dear one, is a fifth-dimensional conversation.
So the service, the light, the brilliance, say, that a mineral being brings to the planet, and the service of that energy, can be far greater and far more lustrous than a human being.
So it is incorrect to assume that, “First I have to do duty as a mineral, and then an animal…” Particularly the animal kingdom is brilliant. And do not forget, in this Ascension process, that all the kingdoms have already reorganized themselves. It is the humans that are the last in line, shall we say.
So it is not a matter of having to do one and then the next. It is not sequential. … Now, has it become, in the old realm, a way of evolution? Yes. Does it still apply? And has it applied throughout the cosmos? No! …
Now, this classification system that humans have evolved and have been taught, it does not bear up under higher dimensionality, or within that greater circle of dimensionality. So what you are thinking of is, “I will eventually evolve back into being an angel or an archangel or a seraphim.”
Is it true? Yes, because you will evolve back. You will grow in the sense of you will grow, you will do your service, you will have the experiences that you have wanted to have; then you will eventually shed your skin and fly free. So in that sense of evolution, yes, it is so.
And while you are on what you think of as this side, this realm, maybe you decide that you will go back, and you will be on board ship, or on Arcturus, or the Pleiadian sector, or Sirius, or even return as human beings to see this golden age? The answer is yes. But it is not a matter of what you have thought of as karmic law, that you must return and do your duty.
You, all of you who listen with me this night, we have told you, and we tell you again, you are masters; you are in your mastery. And it is a matter of accepting and living and embracing this. So you are not here to be in boot camp, as it were. You are here to flourish and to bring in all this understanding of who you are.
So you are in your mastery. You are in your angelic self. You are in your intergalactic self. You are all of these things, and you are man and woman in form.
And in that integrated understanding of beingness, you move into creation. You get rid of the feelings and beliefs of elimination, that “I have to eliminate these sins or these conditions before I can advance.” That is simply not the case.
Claim it! Claim your dominion! Claim your throne! Claim your power! But never, never think of yourself as less-than.
And let us tell you, the way that Jesus has been described as speaking from his angelic self was a way in which to have human beings understand that there had been a transformation to the light.

(3) “I died as mineral and became a plant.
I died as plant and rose to animal.
I died as animal and I was man. …
Yet once more I shall die as man, to soar
With angels blest; but even from angelhood
I must pass on: all except God doth perish.
When I have sacrificed my angel soul,
I shall become what no mind e’er conceived.
Oh, let me not exist! For Non-existence
Proclaims in organ tones, ‘To Him we shall return.'” (Rumi in Anne Fremantle and Christopher. In Love with Love. 100 of the Greatest Mystical Poems. New York, etc.: Paulist Press, 1978, 58.)
