Some time ago Archangel Michael said to me that “classical [enlightenment] theory has served you well. Now you are on a new course.” (1)
Indeed that appears to be so. One that stands many things associated with classical enlightenment theory on its head.
Let me give you a few examples. Archangel Michael has told me that the experience of transformative love I had during my 2015 heart opening was Seventh Dimensional.
Steve: The space that I call transformative love, what dimension is it?
AAM: It is the Seventh Dimension. (2)
Since I was in transformative love after my heart opening, it would seem to follow that I temporarily entered the Seventh Dimension.
Classical enlightenment theory would probably object to that statement on two grounds.
First, if I really visited the Seventh Dimension, they might say, I’d be very unlikely to return. (3)
Elsewhere, Michael says:
Archangel Michael: You are and you are maintaining and obtaining every day a higher frequency of your heart being.
Steve: So I’m obtaining a higher frequency but obviously I’m not to … become a guru. So can you help me make sense of returning to my interdimensionality while not becoming a guru figure.
AAM: It is very simple: Visit; don’t stay. (4)
Well, there it is. In classical theory, you don’t just drop in on another dimension and return.
If you realize another dimension, you’re gone from this one. You stay there. The whole thing is about realizing higher and higher levels of existence, is it not?
Evidently not. St. Germaine adds a word of explanation:
“You see all the rules have changed. You have decided to maintain form. That doesn’t mean we’re going to have you punished by not allowing you access to the 7th.
“That is the old paradigm. ‘You can’t come here, unless you die.’ Well, that’s not true! That’s what enlightenment and Ascension is about. You can go as far [as you like?], you can go and feel and be the Love that is the 7th Christ consciousness. You can have it all and then you pull it into your physical form so that you are a walking, talking, working, creating Christ-conscious Being.” (5)
OK. If you say so, but the revelation that we can visit higher dimensions and return is a big departure from classical theory.
Michael actually explained at length on one occasion how dimensionality did not form a feature of the sages’ discussions.
Archangel Michael: Now that sense of bringing others along wasn’t defined by dimensions. It was more a teacher/student, sage/novitiate relationship. So the framework was very different.
What you have now, is the knowingness that you are, for purposes of explanation, moving forward dimensionally, flowing back and forth, and that sense also of the flow throughout dimensions, that you can flow back and forth, that it was not restricted, that it wasn’t that you arrived at Heaven’s Gate and that was it.
This flow is new. Well, it is not new but it is new to human thinking and the sense that, yes, you are not looking for students or followers. What you are truly doing, yes, as pathfinders, you are showing the way, but you are also bringing along the collective in entrainment.
Now the sages did not think of this, of their journey as a process of entrainment of bringing the entire collective along. You do. And when I say “you” I mean the current thinking and body of understanding and knowing in the lightworker community. So the fundamental premises have changed. (6)
So, really, everything is affected.
The second grounds on which the classical sages might object is that the heart opening in which I experienced this love was a fourth-chakra enlightenment experience. In classical theory, a fourth-chakra event remains simply that and is not seen as an exit point or portal to a higher dimension.
Fail. And since I’m not attached, I should be equanimous no matter which it goes, right? It only matters to a mapmaker of enlightenment.
Here’s a final example of how classical theory will need to change. I was taught that plants evolved into animals, which evolved into humans, which evolved into angels, archangels, and finally Home. (7)
Not only is our view of evolution not correct, but we get to go Home after we finish the Twelfth Dimension, rather than marching on into the angelic realms. I said to Michael:
Steve: What happens after the 12th dimension? Where do humans go? Do they collapse into sheer energy or…
Archangel Michael: Yes, they come into sheer energy and return Home. When we say return Home, now some of them upon the way say, “Wait a minute, I would rather be over here.” And of course, that is absolutely acceptable.
Steve: So there is no going into angels, going into archangels, going into this realm… There’s none of that. They go from the 12th dimension Home?
Steve: That just turns our contemporary thinking on its head!
AAM: Oh, you haven’t heard anything yet! We will talk about the evolutionary ladders (as you tend to think of it) and the various choices that are available in terms of that evolutionary ladder.
Steve: Oh please! We’ve got it all wrong down here! Help! Help! Message in a bottle!
AAM: I will send it parcel post and express mail! (8)
I love his humor.
Our Ascension is unprecedented and, so, many things have changed in light of it, Michael says:
AAM: You are in a time of individual and collective Ascension that has never occurred upon your planet or elsewhere so many of the historic and accurate understandings with regard to heart openings have shifted – can we say, expanded. (9)
He confirms what St. Germaine said, that the rules have changed:
Steve: Is the realm that we’re building and taking our physical bodies with us to altogether new?
Archangel Michael: Yes, it is brand new.
Steve: … Brand new, and the rules have changed?
AAM: That is correct. (10)
A century and a half ago, Sri Ramakrishna said: “He who has made the law can also change it.” (11) We are watching proof of that assertion unfold before our eyes.
So some conditions have changed. Some experiences have expanded. And many of the rules have changed to fit a brand new space and a brand new form of Ascension. All of these make the classical enlightenment teachings need reconstruction.
I continue to have a sentimental attachment to the classical sages for the quality of their teachings, but, from my viewpoint, their cosmology and ontology are in need of a refitting.

(3) One answer to that is that my experience may have been truncated or toned down so that I wouldn’t abandon my service contract.
I agree that it makes most sense that I would not return to the Third/Fourth if I found myself in the Seventh.

(7) For instance, Rumi:
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!
Proclaims in organ tones,
‘To Him we shall return.’ (Rumi, ILWL, 58.)
