A mood settled over me, unbidden tonight, as I stood by my desk.
Suddenly my experience of standing shifted.
My connection to the floor was solid. My feeling within my body was unified, fluid, and strong. There was no wavering in the mind.
I was in a state of higher-dimensional peace.
It felt as if you wouldn’t be able to slip a piece of paper between my foot and the floor. I was a solid granite pillar.
This is why I say, and Archangel Michael said, that peace is like granite.
Archangel Michael: 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. (1)
I now understand perfectly what he’s talking about.
It isn’t that peace is like granite. It’s that we are like granite when at peace. Our legs feel as if they were ballast on flat granite ground. We stand solid and strong.
We are that way because, at that moment, we have no issues.
At the moment this all happened for me, I had no issues. Nothing disturbed the quietness of my mind. I believe that one only needs a moment like this to trigger the experiences the Company of Heaven has waiting for us.
I’m not trying to hold on to the experience. I’ll probably lose it by writing about it.
I hasten to add that this comes a day after acting on Kathleen’s concept that “the Mother forgives everything.” I actually worked with her implied advice and got deeply into forgiving everything. That may have opened this space.
You and I know that, just as when I’ve talked about love over the years I was talking about its higher-dimensional variety, so here I’m talking about a higher-dimensional variety of peace. This is not the peace that we normally experience, which is very weak in comparison.
“Peace is like granite” means that one has reached a state – permanently or momentarily – where there are no more issues. There’s nothing more to disturb the peace of one’s mind. One can, at a time like this, enter into a higher-dimensional space or place of consciousness where one’s stance upon the ground feels solid; one is undisturbed by any consideration.
It doesn’t mean I can go out there and slay my enemies. Like love, peace will probably depart at my first untoward thought!
Did I suspect that I’d enter into a different perceptual territory when I had no more issues? Did I suspect that a day might arrive when, just for a second, I had no more issues? No to both.
At this moment (A) I’m at peace and know it and (B) I’m standing, almost as if I’m rooted to the ground, solidly, stably, and present.
Our consciousness state, when at peace, is yards and yards further down the road to character strength and stability than it is when we’re not at peace. (2)
Where I got stuck was in trying to see a similarity between peace and granite. There isn’t any. It’s how we feel when we’re at peace that’s being commented on.
I hear a voice saying, “a house divided against itself cannot stand.” When our minds are a house divided against themselves, when we have issues, when there is no firmness of decision, we have no power in our stand or statements. We give up easily. We don’t know what we’re fighting for.
But all that confusion and weakness of intent is absent in peace. Not because one consideration won out.
It isn’t that we switched sides. It isn’t that our side won.
It’s that all thought quiets down, taking with it these and every other consideration, as if everything went down the drain.
It’s taken me something like six years to get that. I hope I can recover the experience, but if not, I’ve captured it in words.
This isn’t the lifetime for me to be focused on enlightenment; it’s the lifetime to be focused on recording the experiences the Company of Heaven bring me for the help that that brings other people. Enlightenment comes later in the form of a return to one’s native dimension. I can wait.

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 a remarkable composure to him. 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 out an energetic dart at me. A bond was made. And I said to myself: “I know this depth of peace that this man has shown me. It’s the Natural Self.”
Immediately I found myself sinking into a deep, deep sense of peace, way down deep. I ended up in a place that was absolutely solid. It was as if I were standing on a slab of granite.
Later again, in An Hour with an Angel, Michael also described peace as being like stone and I remarked that that was my experience as well. (See below.) 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 all do short of Ascension. (“The Peace that Passeth Understanding,” July 18, 2017, at http://goldenageofgaia.com/2017/07/18/the-peace-that-passeth-understanding/.)
Steve Beckow: (Laughter). I had an experience of deep peace some years ago. I think it was about 2015. And I was surprised to find that peace was so substantial. It felt to me as if I were standing on a granite rock and I remember saying that to myself. And then I remember a couple of years later you actually used that word, [saying] that peace was like granite. …

Archangel Michael: 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?” (“Transcript ~ Archangel Michael: You Have Chosen to Be the New Paradigm of Love, May 31, 2018,” June 7, 2018 at http://goldenageofgaia.com/2018/06/07/transcript-archangel-michael-you-have-chosen-to-be-the-new-paradigm-of-love-may-31-2018/.)
I understand all of what he says here now!!!!!
(2) You’re talking to the Humpty Dumpty Man. This is me at this stage moving from being shattered at age seven when my father shouted at me from inches in front of my face through many stages to, most recently, restoring self-confidence to, now, standing in strength and stability. Well, for a moment anyways.
I’ve just demonstrated what I mean by the process of “changing one’s mind.” I now see the value of peace. My vote has therefore changed from peace? nah, to peace? Yeeeeeeeesssssss! I changed my mind and now very much value peace.
No longer am I pushing an idea. I get it! which produces its own momentum.
I see the absolute benefit of being in higher-dimensional peace. That’s enough to convert me.
