I took the day off just to relax. And in order to relax, I was pursuing my hobby-of-the-moment, which involves painting interestingly-shaped bottles with glitter paint.
Let’s see where a picture is…. Here’s one. The red Tanqueray label reads “T.” But if you turn it upside down it reads “Q.” (We do what we can.)
So I’m relaxing and feeling very good. And suddenly, I ask myself, “What do you mean, ‘good’?” And I recognized my state as mild bliss. The minute I recognized it, it blossomed into a wave of bliss.
And I realized that we just don’t pay attention to these wisps that we’re always feeling, that can lead, when recognized as in this instance, to the full state.
I have to acknowledge that I have mixed feelings about bliss – and some resistance. We used to talk about “getting high” and “dropping out and tuning in” in the Sixties. There was a fair amount of self-indulgence, along with everything else. And so I’ve shied away from bliss.
But Michael says he wants me to be in it and write about it:
“Allow yourself to find this balance – and of course we will help – of being in the bliss, infusing the bliss into the words, knowing and understanding the pain and suffering and disappointment of those who are still in the midst of [their cleansing].” (1)
He asked how folks would know what to look for if people who experienced these states did not share about them:
Archangel Michael: When you are in the bliss … is when you are truly in the union not only with my Sacred Self. It is with our Sacred Self.
It is the totality of all; where the, what you can think of as the, distinguishing outlines of individuation, of delineation disappear. That is truly the way existence is. (2)
It does not eradicate the sense of individuality or uniqueness but it reduces it to what it really is, which is of very little importance.
Steve: I’m enjoying the bliss. You can send any amount of it you wish my way.
Archangel Michael: I’m sending it as an appetizer and sometimes as a full meal!
And you are anchoring into it bit by bit so that you are not overwhelmed and that you are able to communicate, write, share, and guide those who are following you so that they may know, not only what to look for but what to look forward to. (3)
Oooooh-kay. But there’s something about being in bliss while others suffer that I feel uncomfortable with.
I have the thought that to be in bliss, and write about it, when so many people are suffering seems insensitive, like arriving in a Lamborghini at a world conference on eliminating poverty.
I have this mental image of Jabba the Hutt in bliss.
So I resist.
But unless someone shares on subjects like bliss, we’ll be surprised and confused when we suddenly find ourselves in it and don’t know what happened. It’s even more important with a feeling like ecstasy, which is reportedly Twelfth Dimensional. (4) We won’t know what to aim for or ask for if we haven’t heard of its existence.
The other One I serve, the Lord Arcturus, once told me that it was desirable that I have interdimensional experiences in order to let others know what’s coming down the pike. That conversation is too long to quote here so I put it in the footnotes. (5)
So encountering and getting beyond my discomfort is what I need to do. AND not allow myself to go too far ahead of the group so I don’t lose my ability or desire to communicate, as Michael has often asked. I share a few of these mentions because they undoubtedly apply to you as well. I invite you to hear them as if he were speaking to you:
Archangel Michael: Because you are a communicator, it is important not only to share the truth of your being, of our being, but also to be able to clearly relate to people where they are. (6)
AAM: If you came with full capacity and meaning – yes, the vision, the hearing, the knowing, the full memory, the access, all of the above – and you were to communicate to humans, to the collective,there would be a sense of separation. That is why you, as with so many, have been kept under cover. (7)
AAM: It is important that you speak and communicate in language that people understand, embrace and can get behind. (8)
AAM: You [are] not [to] venture too far ahead of where people are, both individually in terms of your smaller circle but also in terms of the collective. (9)
AAM: If you venture, as you would often like, too far ahead of the crowd, then who are you speaking to? (10)
So there you have it: Enter into and enjoy the bliss but not so much that you remove yourself from fulfilling your soul contract or render yourself incomprehensible.
But today is for enjoying the bliss!

(2) I’ve said for years that the tsunami of love sweeps away cares and concerns. Here Michael makes a similar comment: “What you can think of as the, distinguishing outlines of individuation, of delineation disappear [in bliss]. That is truly the way existence is.” This is what makes the world work for higher-dimensional beings: the quality of the love and bliss they feel make negativity impossible.

(4) My reference on the matter is to Michael:
Steve: The space that I call transformative love, what dimension is it?
Archangel Michael: It is the Seventh Dimension.
Steve: Then what dimension is bliss?
AAM: It is between Eight and Nine.
Steve: And ecstasy?
Steve: And what about exaltation?
AAM: Then you have moved beyond. (AAM, Jan. 20, 2016.)

I haven’t had sufficient experience with exaltation to believe I could describe anything more about it than I did in the articles at the time.
(5) Lord Arcturus: Now, you have come to a planet in this and in other lifetimes to assist – yes, through communication, through clarity – with the progression of the planet through the elimination of the old third, which was really quite disastrous [to] the progression up through the fifth, through the six, to the seventh so that the planetary system will reside in a level of higher consciousness, Christed consciousness as you think of it.
Now in order to do that, it is highly beneficial – and this is where mutuality [written into my soul contract] comes in – that you would have, not only the intelligence but the perspective of the higher dimensions (it is not a hierarchy but it is different).
And so the perspective say of the ninth dimension is very different than the perspective of say the third, the fifth or the seventh dimension.
Because it is very important that humanity realize, as they are in their unfoldment to a grander plan, that the seventh dimension is not the end of the road, not the be all and end all.
And so, some of the perspective, the experience, the knowing, the intelligence of different dimensionality is highly beneficial [in your case] in helping them move into that higher-dimensional anchoring. (Lord Arcturus in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, June 12, 2019.)
