This is a very important discussion. And I am excited and thrilled that you, all of you who are listening or listening after the fact, are prepared to have this discussion. So I want to be very clear. So let me back up…

An Hour With An Angel Radio Show

Archangel Michael: And welcome to you, dear friends, for I AM Michael, Warrior of Peace, Archangel of Love, Bringer of News, Bringer of the New Dawn in so many ways. And yes, there is a great deal for us to discuss this night, not only about your process of Ascension but of course about the collective process, and about some of the hindrances that appear on the horizon, which we, of course, will get into.

But first I ask you as we begin, as I often do, to ignite your Blue Flame of Peace, to ignite the knowing of peace within your being, to ignite the love within your heart. Let the bright Blue Flame burn brightly, not only for you to see and to feel but for all to see and feel, not only upon your plane of Gaia, not only within your dimensions but throughout the galaxies and throughout the realms. So, dear friend, where do you wish to begin this day?

Steve Beckow: Thank you, Lord. And I actually do wish to begin with three very quick questions, two of which are probably going to find their way into Cosmic Vision News. The first question is, can you give us an update, please, on the number of views of I Know Our Galactic Family Is Here, Do You? on YouTube, and then the total number, please?

AAM: Oh, it is several million now. It is over 3 million in terms of YouTube, and it is about 4 million 500 in terms of total views.

SB: Okay. Well, thank you very much. We can only get that information from you. Thank you. Now, two questions from Geoffrey. Again, short answers are fine. Several news articles received on Sunday have indicated that a re-evaluation of the Iraqi Dinar is now underway and could be announced today, and perhaps even by the time this program airs. Some sources have indicated that this is a scam, and others feel that it is a vehicle by which some of the Prosperity Funds may make it into the hands of good people. Has a reevaluation taken place? And if so, is this also a tool for getting funds backed by precious metals out to people?

AAM: The re-evaluation of the Iraq Dinar has not… as you well know has been underway for some time in terms of what you would think of as back-room discussions. The official re-evaluation has not taken place quite yet, but there are some very, can we say, high-level discussions about that going forth very quickly. Yes, it is a way in which to have money into the hands of many who have trusted and who have undertaken this investment in order to have help for the lightwork and the lightholder community.

This situation is being pushed and being okayed by the highest levels of government, and is occurring at this time because of the election of Barack Obama. Now, also understand, though, there are many that are still involved in the economic controls and, can we say, terrorism, of the United States in particular, but international monetary concerns as well, against the Middle East. The heating up of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is also having an effect on delaying that re-evaluation being announced. But you can anticipate it very shortly.

SB: Okay. Thank you, Lord. There are some rumors circulating at this time about a series of financial protocols that have been called the Wanta-Reagan-Mitterand Protocols. At least one source is indicating that these Protocols are now being implemented and this will help to release global Prosperity Funds. Is there truth to the rumor that the Protocols are now being implemented, and is there truth to the rumor that it will help with the Global Prosperity Funds?

AAM: Well, certainly the implementation of these Protocols would result in a lessening of stress, financial stress, and the implementation of security, financial security, for many. But those protocols, although they are… think of them in many ways as being akin to the discussions about Dinars. Yes, we understand that they are completely different participants and principles, but it is actually part and parcel of the same undertaking. So these principles and these protocols are being discussed, but they have not yet been implemented.

SB: Okay. Thank you, Lord. Turning now to Ascension, which is really the topic of our interview today, the first question I wanted to ask you — it’s been asked before, but the question persists in the lightworker community. And I’d like a really clear and unequivocal answer to the question. And that is, will we ascend as a planet with all its inhabitants to the 5th dimension on December 21st, 2012, or will we not? Will something else happen?

AAM: Yes, you would like a very clear, unequivocal answer, would you not?

SB: I would, yes.

AAM: But as you know, I have been very hesitant not only in this forum but in other forums to give this answer. Let me put it this way…. And I am not trying to avoid your question, but it is not as clear-cut as you are presenting. Many are already ascending, and that floodgate, that portal is already open, and many, many, many are taking advantage of it. Hundreds of thousands now have taken advantage of it.

What you are doing and what many, particularly of the lightworker and lightholder community, have been stuck on is the event of December 21st, 2012. But Ascension, and the Ascension of Gaia with all upon her, is not simply a singular, one-day, one-minute, one-second event. Is this a benchmark? Is this a time when there is alignment, both cosmically, energetically, and in terms of Divine Plan where things are coming together, where spirit, being, form, matter, molecules, essence, Mother/Father/One, humans, elementals, and planet are coming together in order to shift, to shift from one reality to another?

The answer is yes. But — and I must add this “but”, even though many of you do not like to hear this word, and I certainly do not like or enjoy using it — you are thinking of this as an immediate snap for everybody concerned, and not everybody upon the planet… as we have said, all are welcome, all are included in the plan, Gaia has not discounted any kingdom or any person, any human, hybrid, starseed, earthkeeper; but not all are prepared to reset the clock, as it were, in that moment.

So, is there the opportunity for others to take a slower route, to engage in a process that is more attuned to their own time schedule and what they consider reality? The question is open for discussion, and the answer is yes.

SB: Well, let me put it another way, Lord. I imagine that if people wake up on December 22nd and find that the Earth is still here in 3D, there will be a tremendous hue and cry, a lot of questioning saying, well, did it happen, or did it not? So, is the Earth going to be here in 3D after December 21st?

AAM: Let me say this. The Earth is already not very well anchored in 3D. And so will it be anchored in 3D on December 21st, 2012? The answer is no. It will be anchored firmly and completely in the heart of the 5th dimension. Will it brush lightly in the fourth, not the third? Will it brush lightly into the 7th? The answer is yes. The anchoring of the planet at that time will be in the 5th dimension.

SB: Would — if I was on planet Earth on December 22nd, and I asked this —

AAM: Which you will be!

SB: [laugh] Yes, of course. But would I see the 3rd dimension? Would — is there going to be anything to see in the 3rd dimension of Gaia on December 22nd?

AAM: This is a very important discussion. And I am excited and thrilled that you, all of you who are listening or listening after the fact, are prepared to have this discussion. So I want to be very clear. So let me back up.

What do you perceive? And I will answer my own question. What do you perceive as the 3rd dimension? What reality do you choose to create and experience? If you are anchored on Gaia and in your heart of love, then the answer is no, you will not have the experience or access to what we refer to as the old 3rd dimension, which is the dimension of lack, limitation, hatred, greed, control — you know the list is endless.

Will you have an experience of physicality? Yes, because that is one of the unique qualities about this particular Ascension process. It is unique throughout time and space, but it is also positioned in time and space to be a physical experience. Will the colors be brighter? Yes. Will you see more? Yes. Will you experience a difference in terms of how you feel and how you are perceiving your external world and Gaia, your community? Yes.

Now, let me add a proviso. If you are determined that you still are requiring, in terms of your own soul journey, for a very brief period of time, but there will be a window open — and this has been a part of our work; if you are choosing to still have partial, and I do mean partial, experiences of what you consider to be the 3rd dimension, then you can do so. But the reality is not going to be there. You will be — experience a holograph.

Now, I am talking about the portion of the human race — not those who absolutely refuse to go and therefore have chosen reassignment — I am talking about the portion of the human race that is ready to go, holding love, but still clinging to some false belief systems. Now, I do not mean the false belief systems that are of the lower vibration, such as control, greed, death, destruction, despair.

So there will be some who find themselves in an intermediary position. But for the majority of those who have said yes, you will find yourself in very rapid transition into the 5th dimension. And perhaps even higher, for some of you.

SB: All right. Well, let me …

AAM: Now…

SB: Okay. Go ahead.

AAM: Go ahead.

SB: I always want to hear what you have to say, Lord. Please go ahead.

AAM: All right. Then I shall continue. I have said that this is a process and not quite a snap. And what do we mean in terms of divine understanding when we say that? Because when we say snap, we mean that it is not completely instantaneous. So, for example, we are not trying — because there are many, many, many upon your planet who have no idea about such a shift occurring. We are not trying, nor do we wish to set up a situation where people wake up and feel that they are psychotic. So, for them, there will be a transition, somewhat of an incubation, while they attune themselves to the new reality.

Now, by and large, that is not the people who are listening to this program tonight. However, there are also those who are still clinging — and we do include the light-holder, love-holder community who are still clinging to some fear, to some anger, to some reticence. You need to let go of this, my friends. This is the last push. So you need to know and to acknowledge…. we cannot — we have been flooding you with energy, but we cannot do this completely to you. This is a joint undertaking. This is the creative partnership.

So if you are holding on… When you have said, for example, if you wake up on the 22nd of December and it seems like you are in the same old same old, then you will be angry, then you will be angry because you are holding on to anger. It has no place! It cannot exist, within your heart, within your being, within your essence, and it cannot exist in the air you breathe and the vibration of new Gaia, of Nova Earth.

So, if you are holding on to it, if you are sitting there with your arms folded and saying, “If this doesn’t happen I am going to be furious,” I am begging you, let go of the fury. Let go of the fear. Let go of the reticence. This is a co-creation with you. It is the only reason you came to Earth at this time.

Have you done many miraculous, uplifting, wondrous things? Yes. But the reason you came was not only to witness, but to be part of this Ascension. So, if there is any residue, now is the time to relinquish it. Torch it, give it to St. Germaine, give it to me, give it to the Mother, but let it go.

Now, I know what I have said has provoked many more questions, so I invite you, dear heart, to proceed.

SB: I’m sure you can see me scribbling on my piece of paper those additional questions, Lord. Well, back in 2009 you said through Ronna Herman that we must clear 51 percent of our negative frequency patterns and attune our energetic signature to at least a portion of the lower sub-level frequencies of the 5th dimension in order to receive the adamantine particles of creator light, which are an integral part of the metatronic post-spectrum light. Were you saying that we have to clear 51 percent of our negativity to ascend, and have you just described what will happen to people who, say, clear 49 percent?

AAM: We have come a long way since that time. And now I truly am speaking to your audience, and mine — our magnificent platform has done tremendous work. So I am not going to say to you that it is the line in the sand of 51 percent versus 49 percent. Do you need to hold as much high vibrational light as you possibly can? The answer is yes. And let me also explain why. It is not just for you. This is a collective undertaking, not only a collective undertaking, the unfoldment of the Mother’s Plan — which will not be stopped, by the way — but it is in partnership, with the kingdoms, with Gaia, with your Star brothers and sisters, and with each one of you.

So, as you are incorporating higher and higher quotients of the Divine light, the Creator essence, then you are also doing so for those who stand, sit and walk by you, because your field is penetrating them and assisting them.

So it is viral in the real true sense of the word. And that is why my plea to let go of anything that is not of the highest vibration. Now, I have said to you, both privately and within this forum, that the passport to Ascension is love. And it is the love of self, it is the love and honoring and acknowledgment of yourself and as an outshoot of that your community, humanity, the planet, the kingdoms and the Universe.

But the starting point is you. Now, you have been penetrated enormously by the highest light there is, by the highest vibrations and frequency that exists. Now, many of you have felt that you are in an electric chair, and some of you have responded to this frequency by simply being so tired that you could not keep your eyes open. It matters not You have received the energy.

Love is the key. We are not going to say, “You are only at 48 percent, therefore you cannot come.” That would not be of love. But what we will do is with this open portal, this open doorway, is we will work with you so that that illusion slips away and that you are fully anchored in the 5th, in harmony with Gaia and everything else upon her.

There are times, and this channeling with sweet Ronna Herman was one of those times when you were given these instructions to help understand and to catapult you into doing what is necessary, just as today I am asking you to let go of any doubt, frustration. Do you not know that we are fully aware of your frustration? And that in so many cases it is not only understood, it is mutual.

No, we do not experience frustration in the same way as you do, but we certainly understand it. And we certainly have, hmm, times when we are anxious to move ahead, and where the human collective has said, “No, we are not quite ready.”

But that has been the entire purpose. Twenty-five years plus several eons’ worth of preparation of the lightworker, lightholder, loveholder, pathfinder, wayshower, pillar community.

You have been the preparation. You do not need to go looking for that creative spark of the Divine, it is already within you. It is part and parcel of who you are, and it is magnificent and bright and beautiful, profound. So what we are asking, pleading, at this point, because we are very close to that edge, please acknowledge it, embrace it, deepen it, expand it, and then share it.

SB: Thank you, Lord. If I can intervene, if we can round this discussion out by looking at those people who choose not to ascend because they’re parents who want to stay with their children — and I know you have spoken to this previously — but also because they’re doctors in Africa who are dealing with leprosy cases, or victims of AIDS or what have you. Can you very clearly tell us, if they choose not to ascend, what is their future? When will they ascend? How will they ascend? Where will they be after December 22nd, if they choose to remain with their patients or children? Please?

AAM: First of all, the children — and we are talking about children in terms of what you think of as age-wise — are simply not an issue.

SB: Yes. No, I agree there.

AAM: The children already have their wings unfurled and are ready to go. So do not think as a parent that you have need to worry about the children, your animals, your pets. Because they are purity incarnate. It does not matter if they are the most raucous teenagers going through the most hormonal phases, they are ready to go. It does not matter if they are doing drugs, whether they are acting out, whether they are being petulant and disrespectful, they are ready to go.

Now, the question of adult children who wish to stay with their parents who perhaps are not ready to proceed. You are still holding the love ticket. You are still holding the love passport. So, do not think that this is eliminating you from proceeding forward. The only reason one chooses to stay, other than simply an affair with the ego and darkness, but that is not what we are discussing at this moment, is fear. The only reason you choose to stay is fear. And that goes for the doctor in Africa treating lepers and AIDS patients, and it goes for the adult children taking care of their parents, or their sickly spouse, or their mentally deficient sister.

Let me explain. The fear is underneath the love. I am not suggesting that you do not care deeply, but what you are not understanding, my beloved friends, the leper is healed, the AIDS patient is healed, the parents who have garnered such love from you go willingly with you. So you do not need to fall back and say in a martyr way — and most of you who have this feeling have been martyred many, many times — and what you are saying is, “I am willing now to do it again.” And I am saying to you, as Archangel Michael and with the Company of Heaven and the blessing of the Divine Mother, there is no need to stay back.

Can you go and have a transition period for your parents to get used to it, for your patients to regenerate? Yes. But you do not need to stay behind in the old 3rd, which is death, disease, destruction. There is no need. Your wish to heal, to take care, to nurture — all of these are the divine qualities that you have been practicing and that you are bringing forward. So just go deeper in your understanding of your motivations of your heart, without judgment, and allow the love to grow.

Does it require trust? In the absolute sense, not only trust in One, not only trust in the Plan, but trust in your sacred self? Yes, it does. But let us also say, we trust that you can do this. You have demonstrated that. So let us go forward together.

SB: Thank you, Lord. And what’s interesting about your answers, I don’t think I phrased my question the best way I possibly could, but you have answered the question that lay under my questions. So thank you for that. Now, I have friends — you brought up the question of the leper will be healed; the AIDS patient will be healed. I have friends, for instance, a friend who has diabetes who doesn’t see healing happening with herself at this time. And she still may be being healed, but just not aware of it. When will this healing take place? Only at Ascension, or prior to Ascension, or prior… when?

AAM: There are many that are already undergoing healing. There are many that are already in the process of regeneration. And then there are some that are … slower? And we do not say that in criticism, but they are slower to heal. And then there is a reason. Some are simply fearful and reticent. For example, let us use diabetes. Diabetes is the craving, the desire for the sweetness of life. And it is absent in a great portion of your collective.

So, an individual who is not experiencing the healing of the diabetes is because they are still holding that energy for the collective, acknowledging that people, whether they have diabetes or not, are not experiencing the sweetness of life. But it can also be that they are fearful of letting go of their disease. Not consciously. Certainly not from an ego standpoint. But unconsciously and subconsciously they feel they have not tasted yet the sweetness of life. Therefore they are not letting go of the disease. It is truly in your dimension of the 3rd reality, it is a chicken and egg question.

SB: All right. Lord, two more questions. The first is, if you could explain something you said to Susan S. back some time ago in 2012, you said, “Other later dates also refer to opportunities to ascend yet even further.” Right now, it is inconceivable, if I were to say to you, “Oh, and by the way, you stay alive, and in 2030 you take another jump.” You would think I was talking ridiculously. So we stage it as well. I imagine you talk about further Ascensions to the 6th and 7th dimensions, but could you clarify that statement, please, for us?

AAM: There is a very popular song upon your planet called “You Have Only Just Begun.” When you are anchored in the 5th, the yearning to keep going is going to grow. There will be other opportunities to ascend further. We have not talked about it extensively. Yes, this channel tends to, but not in this forum. I am not doing it because we want to get you through this portal. But are there other ascensions planned within the Divine Plan? The answer is yes.

Is it inconceivable to you at this point? Yes, because your reference point, even those of you who are straddling dimensions — and by the way, I am proud of you and you are doing very, very well — but it is inconceivable to you at this point that we are going to then proceed even further because your reference point is the old 3rd. And even the improved 3rd, which is physicality times space, without the false grids and paradigms.

SB: All right Lord. Actually, two more questions. I’m sorry. I just thought about another one. A lot of people are — when they hear, for instance, that Inelia Benz is having a conference in the 5th dimension after December 21st, or that somebody is saying, “Hey, let’s get together and have a conference after December 21st,” they take that as an indication that we’re not going to ascend, or they wonder what we’ll have to talk about in the 5th.

Can you explain to us just a bit please what — I don’t quite know how to ask this question. Are they correct in assuming that we won’t have any conferences in the 5th? And if we do have conferences in the 5th and other things like that, what will they — what purpose will they serve?

AAM: Let me talk to you about us, about what you refer to as the Council of Love or the Company of Heaven, as the Intergalactic Council. Let me share you with you. Our favorite thing is to gather, and there is never any shortage of things to discuss. Do we talk in verbal language like this? No, not necessarily. Telepathically, energetically. But there is an entire universe, infinite creation, taking place of what you think of every second of every minute. There are a million things to discuss.

You are not arriving into the 5th, or anywhere else, with everything intact and already created. That would defeat the purpose. So it is not simply to come and simply float on a cloud and be blissed out. Dear friends, you use the word work; we use the word creation, focused action. There is a great deal to talk about and to be done. You are creating and co-creating with us, with your Star brothers and sisters, Terra Gaia, Nova Earth. You are anchoring Cities of Light, new understandings of society, of government, of culture, of healing, of architecture, of energy. You are coming to know that you are part of a galactic family.

Are there things to talk about? I would suggest that you would want to be gathering constantly. And it does not need to necessarily be formal gatherings, although for many, the adjustment — think of the millions and millions and millions of people who have never thought of this. They are going to want to be brought up to speed. Not because their energy is not there, not because the knowing is not there, but because community will be built in a different way.

People, human beings, this rare species of hybrids, will be speaking to each other in ways that have never occurred, for eons, upon the planet. So, yes, of course, there will be gatherings. There will be gatherings in neighborhoods and Cities of Light. There will be gatherings according to interests and projects — and there will be many projects. And do not forget, you are returning full circle to the Creator Race. And as such, what does that imply? You will be creating.

The human love of discussion, of planning, is not going to die. If anything it is going to expand, because collaboration no longer ends up in conflict, in ego. It ends up in greater creation. So, of course, there will be gatherings.

SB: Lord, Graham and I had a conversation the other day that kept growing in inspirational quality, and we just kept emerging and emerging more in the conversation. So I do know what you’re talking about. [laugh] Now, you said it will defeat the purpose. What purpose are you referring to, Lord?

AAM: The purpose of co-creation. It would defeat the purpose to never gather as community in many forums and in many formats. It would defeat the purpose of community, of interconnectedness, of union, of Unity Consciousness, if everyone is to stay within their new, improved home and never talk to another soul.

SB: All right. Well, that’s very clear. My last question is, could you tell us what we need to keep in mind or need to do to ascend in a gentle and easy manner?

AAM: First and foremost, and yes, I do refer to Linda’s book, her eight easy steps that we have told you of. But first and foremost, please anchor into the heart of Gaia so that you are firmly rooted upon the planet as she moves quite literally into new reality. That is essential.

The second is to hold love and peace. I am partial to the Blue Flame, but it is also your Tri-Flame, the Magenta Flame, the Violet Flame within your being. Use it with great discernment. Hold the love. Be honest with yourself, as you never have been before. Go deeper. If there is residual fear, doubt, it is all right. But you can hand it to me. I will so gladly take it. And if I am not your best friend, then give it to your guides, give it to the Mother, give it to Gaia, but give it away. Let us help you in this.

Then, allow your expanded field, your heart, to reach out and to expand and touch others. This, right now, is some of the most important undertakings, creation, that we have ever asked of thee. So, anchor, let go, expand, love yourself, and get ready. This is the beginning, not the end.

Now, look towards what you will create. Let yourself dream. Let yourself think of what you have always wanted to explore, not in terms of your emotional constraints, or your financial constraints, or your family or societal constraints. Think about what your dream is. Is it to work with the Galactics? Is it to work with the children? Is it to assist the lepers in their transition to health? Is it anchoring Cities of Light? Is it being a channel?

Explore what you want and start to hold the vision of your creation. You do not need to wait. That is what we have been telling you, inviting you, asking you. Come and let your wings unfurl. You are ready, my beloved friends. Go in peace. Farewell.

SB: Thank you, Lord. That was a rich discussion. Thank you very much. Farewell.

Channeled by Linda Dillon 11-19-12


SB: — Graham, let me turn the conversation over to you for a roundtable.

GD: Sounds great. That was very rich, as you pointed out, Steve, and certainly relevant. We’re going to transition, folks, to bring on Linda as herself, get some background noise there. Oh, that sounds a little better. Linda as herself, and Geoff and Steve and myself, just to talk a little bit about the content of what was said. And we’ll see where the conversation goes. It’s certainly a very exciting time, and we’ve got December right around the corner. Maybe, Steve, I can ask you to share what really came — in terms of what was shared today, what did you resonate with?

SB: Oh, well, that was — yes, rich is the word that comes to mind. It was a rich discussion. It answered a lot of questions that I think people are spending a fair amount of energy worrying about. For instance, what happens if the planet is still here in 3D after December 22nd? I’ve heard that a lot. I know a lot of parents are wondering about their children, and I’ve just posted an article on that today. But he talked more about that. He talked about a very thorny problem, what — about a doctor in Africa who’s looking after leprosy patients or AIDS patients. It never occurred to me that the patients would easily ascend and that the doctor doesn’t need to worry about that. That — well, when you think about it, it makes sense. But what he did today was to answer a lot of questions that make sense, when you really penetrate into things, but are not easy for us to reason out with 3rd-dimensional minds.

The notion of why would we have conferences after being in the 5th dimension is because a lot of people have discussed what will happen as us having full consciousness. Well, we will have a greatly expanded knowledge, but we won’t have full consciousness until we merge with God again. So, what does it mean to say we have full consciousness? If we focus on having full consciousness, then we may overlook the fact that we also have a terrific desire to relate to each other, to be in convocation. If you read the literature of life after death, you hear a lot of stories of people gathering in what would have been church meetings, but now they are tremendous convocations of worship or of co-creation.

So, there was just a great deal said today about questions that have been answered partially but haven’t been really deeply explored. And Archangel Michael certainly deeply explored them today. Graham…

GD: Indeed. I really heard his call for… well, he spoke of the love ticket, right? And he gave some very clear guidance for how to go through this Ascension process and do it in a way that feels gentle, in an appealing way. He reinforced anchoring into Gaia. We are ascending with Gaia. To stay in the love, to embody those love qualities now, to be it now.

He talked about holding as much vibrational light as we can for the collective. And I think it’s important to clarify what that is. So it’s self-love, it’s love for others, but it’s also embodying the Divine Qualities that you often speak to, Steve. So, forgiveness, compassion, patience, vulnerability, empathy, for ourselves and for others, holding on to the peace, letting go, embodying and holding on to the vision of what we choose to create individually and collectively. So some really rich and important, valuable guidance and insight there.

Linda, I’d love to hear, from your perspective — you have such a great relationship of course with the Council of Love, and obviously you have written a really great book. And by the way, folks, there are eight easy steps for Ascension.

What’s coming up for you on the heels of this discussion?

Linda Dillon: You know one of the things that comes up for me, and as both of you know I am one that assiduously tries to avoid that December 21st, 2012 date. And I have also felt that, like, 11:11 and the upcoming 12:12 are just as important as December 21st, or any other day.

And what comes up for me is — and what I want to explain is my reticence to hook on to the date. And I think, Steve, you sort of brushed on it, in terms of what you’ve just said, as I sort of drift back in. thanks for giving me a chance to do that!

But my concern is always that people are waiting for the day, for the event, for the shift, you know, for the tilt in the Earth’s axis, and that they’re not doing their work. And so, my inclination, as you know, is always to put the emphasis on the preparation, on the clearing, on the letting go. And God knows, we have been through the waves, the troughs, the Ascension symptoms. I mean, we have collectively and individually compared notes on what this preparation has been about. And we’ve all been experiencing it.

But there’s also the individual work that we do in terms of, you know, letting go of fear, of anger, of old belief systems that are really — I mean, they’re in our bones. And so my concern is always, you know, don’t wait until the 21st and then, because you’re still holding on to your anger, you say, oh, well, it didn’t happen, and I’m… ruh ruh ruh ruh!

So what I liked about what I was hearing from Archangel Michael today, and what I often hear from him, is to do the preparation work. And when I listen and talk with the Council of Love, it’s really interesting, guys, because what I get is that Ascension, when we look at it, is almost like, well, that’s the done deal. It’s sort of like, you know, you’ve already baked Christmas dinner and it’s sitting in the fridge waiting.

And what we really are interested in talking about is what comes next. What are we doing in terms of creating this wonderful new planet? Because it’s not just as if in one single moment, you know, all the pavement disappears, all the dirty buildings disappear. So there is that transition, and we’re being invited to create. So what I feel from the Council is the excitement around that.

GD: Umm. Indeed. I’d like to bring Geoff on with his comments and just to follow up with what you’re saying, Linda. we’ve heard some of this before. Today feels like there’s a further emphasis on the guidance that’s been offered today. But the guidance that’s been offered before — and so my takeaway from that is that — and to your point, Linda — this is a call for us to step in in earnest, recognize that we’re empowered to be co-creative in this, be co-creative in the unfolding of the new Earth. We are empowered to take the initiative and impact the Ascension process and how it is for us as individuals.

And they’re not doing it for us. It’s a co-creative process, it’s a partnership process, but it’s not about sitting around and waiting. It takes dedication, it takes commitment, it takes an intention to go through this process. So be the love now, embody those qualities now, and hold on to the peace now. Be at peace with the 3rd, be at calm with the 3rd, and, to your point, let go of fears.

So we’ve heard this before, but we’re hearing it again, and we’ve heard it a number of times. And so it’s a continued… it’s a continued re-emphasis. And I think we really need to take this seriously.

LD: And if I can add to that —

GD: [ ? ]

LD: …we’re strong enough to do it. If we weren’t ready enough to do it, we wouldn’t be here.

GD: Um-hmm. Yeah. Indeed. Geoff? Are you there?

Geoffrey West: I’m here. Yes.

GD: What… what would you like to share? What’s coming up for you?

GW: There were so many points that came up. And I’ve got about ten different things going through my head right now, so I’ll try just to get to a few of the keys. Certainly what Linda said I think is correct. I tend to resonate with the idea, too, that there will be a December 23rd. And 22nd. And every day after it. It’s what we carry forward from that point. And what came up in my mind in the last few moments, I was thinking about the message that flight attendants give on the aircraft when they talk about a possible decompression in the cabin. You know, an oxygen mask will fall. Please put on your oxygen mask first before attempting to help other people.

So, in the sense of our service to humanity and the planet, when we talk about building a relation, a relation certainly has to exist with oneself, at least to some degree. Now, we may not be totally on the ball, of course, but we do have to have some degree of a connection to who we are, what we are a part of, what we are connected to, and have a relation to that before we can have a relation to others, to our planet, to our galactic families, to this larger life process.

So we are stepping into a point of awakening to the individual truth, but in the space of that truth finding what our relation is not only to ourselves as individuals but to everything and everyone around us. So, in that sense, we do have to put on our oxygen mask first. We do have to do aspects of the work that pertains to looking after ourselves, putting ourselves into a space where we can comfortably, and hopefully as joyfully as possible, serve others and empower them to find their truth and their awakening. Because they are, after all, looking to us, and we have to have our oxygen mask on first to be able to help them find theirs.

GD: That’s a great analogy. And as you’re talking about that what’s coming to mind is a quote that we’ve often talked about, often associated with Gandhi, is ‘to be the change you wish to see in the world’. So it starts with us. So it — the quality of the world that we’re experiencing now, the… to what extent do we feel the peace and the love in ourselves now and within our own world now? And if we’re not experiencing that, what can we do? Because we are empowered, and we do have help. We have our guides, we have angels, we have the heavenly realm, the galactics. They’re here to help. We’ve got to ask for the help, but they’re here. It’s a collective undertaking and process, but it starts with ourselves.

And so this is the invitation to step in in earnest to embody the guidance that we’ve been shared today. And I’m also thinking about Michael Jackson’s song, “The Man in the Mirror.” And of course, as we’re supporting or talking about the theme of music, we heard Archangel Michael reference the Carpenters, “We’ve Only Just Begun.” And this isn’t an end, as we’ve talked about already today. It’s just — it’s just — it is a shift. And it’s just beginning in terms of really unfolding, this beautiful new planet that we’ve been envisioning. Steve, any other comments coming up for you?

SB: Well, interestingly, the part about loving ourselves first is something that some people can misinterpret. They might misinterpret as self-servingness. And I think Archangel Michael on a number of occasions has tried to straighten us out on that subject, that unless we — we are the pipeline, and if we don’t love ourselves we’ve got a blockage in the pipeline. The love comes up within us first, and if we block it at that stage, then it’s never going to flow out to others. So we need to remove the blockage of feelings of worthlessness and not deserving love, et cetera.

But there was also another point that he made past this point of removing the blockage which I’ve seen several lightworkers not recognize, including myself by the way. And when you recognize it it’s quite enlivening. And that’s that… he said that we, by striving to make the most possible evolutionary progress that we could before Ascension, we’re serving others that are — that it’s viral. That — and he said on other occasions that gatekeepers, for instance, would be able to transmit their spirituality, their accomplishment, their light and love.

I recall once that a very dear friend asked why she was placed in a hospital ward that was, you know, to work, that was really a hard place to be in. What was it that she was supposed to be learning? And Archangel Michael replied, it had nothing to do with what she was supposed to be learning. It was that she was there to transmit love to the people around her and make it less of a hard place. And that had not occurred to my friend, and it hadn’t occurred to me either. It was a totally different perspective on situations, and here again he’s given us a totally different perspective on situations, reminding us that our progress benefits others.

It isn’t that we need to progress to that level to ascend, it’s not that at all. It’s that we can sort of gift the excess to others, and so that then becomes a part of our lightworker service. So that particular thing that he said struck me quite a bit, Graham.

GD: Maybe we can spend a little bit of time personalizing or reflecting and sharing a little bit about our personal process, the personal process of Ascension. And I’ll just offer a little bit about what I’m experiencing, and then I invite anyone else to chime in.

I’ve noticed over the last several weeks that I’ve felt far less frustration and doubt, for example, in relation to whether or not specific events happen, or particular dates come and go without anything that seems to be significant, at least in the physical and conscious realm. And I’m experiencing far less interest in paying attention to those… those… those external references, if you will, to measure my progress and how things are going with the Ascension process in general. And I’m feeling a greater sense of peace and calm. And that’s really wonderful. Anyone else want to share?

LD: I would agree with you, Graham. I have let go of dates. [laugh] I had to let go of dates! And events, quote-unquote, quite a while ago. But I don’t feel that same feeling that I think a lot of people have felt and would share this feeling of high anxiety, when you think of, you know, December 21st, 2012. But I also wanted to pick up on something that Steve said about how we are helping others.

I sent out an email to the Council of Love subscribers this morning that I think many of you may have seen by now. But I was… got my very early wake-up call this morning from Wa-kana-taka who is our Intergalactic Council person for Earth asking us to work to bring peace to the Israeli-Palestinian situation right now. And the reason I’m mentioning it is that he’s not asking us to do anything more than to take our expanded love field and simply send it over there like a cloud cover so that it can penetrate and calm down.

And what I think that the purpose behind this, which I didn’t talk about in the email, is for us, as lightworkers and light-holders, as a collective, for us to begin to see how our fields and our divine qualities can really shift a situation. And of course we can’t do that if we have strong, can I say, non-love feelings about this situation, that one side is right, one side is wrong, one side of it’s aggressive, one side is a victim, because it doesn’t matter what we do if we love and we just send love to the entire situation, because we love ourselves, because we’re holding that vibration. Things just don’t bother us as much.

GD: And the power of sending that love is huge! Huge, huge!

LD: And empowering!

GD: Absolutely. Geoff? Steve? Anything you’d like to add?

GW: Go ahead, Steve.

SB: Well, I’m just coming to understand this whole area. So, if we’re talking about our experiences of Ascension then I have to share my own, which is that I started out as a light-warrior, and I regarded my contribution as standing up to the cabal, if you wish. So that back in 2009 when I started the blog I was listing the crimes that the cabal had committed, naming names, confronting them and almost inviting them to, you know, to expose themselves by taking action, and what have you.

And gradually, as time went on, the need to battle the cabal, so to speak, lessened, and the need to be and express love increased. And I was very, very uncomfortable for a time. So I’m a late-comer to the discussion of love, but if we’re sharing our experiences of Ascension, then I’d have to say that that’s the biggest development in me, is the amount of love I’m feeling. It’s just growing incrementally. And now that we have this discussion, that that’s good for the collective, then I come to see this as service. So this increases the interest in all of this.

So I’d have to say for myself that I… I’m forgetting the 3rd dimension. I have no more interest in what’s happening in the 3rd dimension. It’s a chore to read the news enough to keep readers informed of the very, very major events that are happening. But I’m starting to become forgetful of what we regard as normal. I’m being evermore filled with love and serenity.

I’m also more sensitive to conflict. I mean, even people that I meet or have coffee with, who are cynical or critical or put a spin on something or are sarcastic, it… I can’t take it anymore. I want to run out the door! That’s number one.
And when I do something… I did something the other day. I just … I made a remark that was just mildly judgmental, and I almost felt like I was going to vomit after that. I had to take it back. I had to stop, I had to practically lean against the wall and take it back because I no longer can tolerate it within myself.

So, so, love for me is becoming a bigger and bigger topic, and I’m like a stranger in paradise, I think, or a Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s court. So I’m listening to what you guys have to say, and learning every minute on the subject. Graham?

GD: You are embodying those divine qualities that we’ve talked about. You’re embodying the love. So you’re doing it.

SB: Willy-nilly? Yes? [laugh]

GD: Geoff, I’d love to hear from your… on your personal perspective. Also, if you feel that it would be appropriate and helpful with all of your work with Cosmic Vision News, you had your eye on what’s happening in the world in terms of large-scale events. And it’d be great to hear, if we have time, in addition to your personal Ascension process and what you’d like to share on that, what’s happening in the world for us to look at in terms of benchmarks to… or indicators to point us to the fact that we are seeing, while there are pockets of conflict, we are seeing overall less conflict, and we’re not seeing Armageddon or Earth catastrophes. We’re not seeing nuclear arm activity, I mean, that list can go on and on. I’ll let you take it where you want to go.

GW: Sure. Thanks, Graham. It… In terms of the global picture, I think it is becoming more and more clear to people, even those who have not, or even those who are not at a, quote-unquote, “higher space of awareness” to see the bigger picture, people are beginning to tune into the fact that change can no longer be denied as far as what is happening across the planet at this time.

I think what we are experiencing is… it… arguably it is unparalleled in what we have experienced in the past. We have seen traumatic news events happen. We have seen events of different degrees and different sources, types, and sizes, but we are seeing something at a much larger perspective, for lack of a better word, and people are beginning to see just how interconnected everything is.

And in light of the journey towards one’s individual and personal awakening, now, you know, finding that relation to life and seeing that we are all one, the global events serve as benchmarks in terms of the individual growth. And what I mean by that, or at least what I’m offering for people to reflect on, by that, is that when you observe what’s happening in the world, how are you choosing to react, or how is an individual choosing to react to what is happening? Are they immediately jumping into a response of anger, of fear, of aggression, of any kind of separation, based on what we have been taught?

The whole idea of what we are creating as a collective is a higher vibration, and to varying degrees each individual is being tested in his or her mastery as far as where he or she is on his or her path towards what is being created. And when we look at some of the indigenous traditions, you know, many of the choices and the decisions that they make, they consider numerous generations ahead of time, you know, what’s the impact of the choices that are being made. And at this point in time I think when we look at the global event perspective, we have to say, what choices are we creating or reacting to that will potentially reflect what we… what stories we tell children, you know, in the future of the Golden Age? Do we want to tell children that the golden age started with energies of negativity. I don’t believe that to be the case.

So I think, when we take in all of these energies, we are being challenged to really see the darkest aspects of what is playing out at this point in time, and to ask ourselves, are we willing to send love to those individuals, to those situations? Are we even being willing to forgive those we have judged to be the worst among us? And to say, how do we want this future to begin? Do we want it to begin on a slower way, where we continue the way we’re going right now, or are we willing to say that I will take the golden age at this time if leaders are willing to resign from their positions, and I will forgive them, I will be willing to let them go and live quietly somewhere peaceably amongst themselves, you know, in the space of just being able to get on with creating the Golden Age.

I personally am at a point where I can look at some of the global leaders, and at a time when I, in the past, when I may have wished to see them imprisoned, or had some other judicial process carried out against them, I am almost at a space now, and maybe these are the energies that are impacting me personally, I’m approaching a space where I could say I’m willing to forgive and let them just disappear as long as the rest of the world gets its opportunity to move forward and to do so as quickly as possible.

That, that I think is from the more global perspective. For me, individually, in my journey, I’m feeling a much greater sense of calm. I don’t get drawn into energies of conflict anymore. And I choose really not to get drawn into them. I just prefer to sit back and observe them. And I, like everyone else, feel stuff coming up within me. And I’m trying to — my best to address it on a case-by-case scenario. My buttons get pushed quite frequently. But I stop myself much more quickly than I used to, and I sit back and ask questions to myself in how I wish to move forward. But that’s the nutshell scenario of what I’m seeing happening at this time.

GD: Oh, great stuff, Geoff. I really resonate with what you were sharing about some of the individuals that have been trying to control — talking about the cabal, Illuminati — but that also extends to others as well. When we think about the theme of separateness, us versus them, that has been so prevalent on the planet, we are moving into an age of unity consciousness — well, where — while differences still remain, and diversity remains, and in fact is celebrated, it’s really the theme of recognizing that we are all one, and that we are all interconnected, and that we are at this together, and we’re creating this new world together, and we’re embodying this new world together. And so letting go of that sense of separateness and really recognizing our sense of unity.

We have just several more minutes left. Is there anything that is coming up for anybody that you feel like you’d really like to speak to?

SB: Yes…

LD: I can really relate to Steve’s feeling of forgetfulness. And it’s almost as if the memory of being separate, of really wanting to engage in drama, of really, you know, getting into the thick of it is disappearing. It’s like it’s just fading from our DNA, it’s fading from our genes. It’s just not something that we want to eat or breathe or drink anymore. And that’s delightful. It’s something I think we’re all ready to forget.

GD: I feel that too. I totally resonate with that. Anyone else?

SB: Yes, Graham. It’s funny. I was going to say yes, but I deferred to Linda, and that all worked out! I feel a desire to stress that when we say “We are all one,” many people may have trouble with that statement. I mean, you know, this person has red hair, that person has dark hair, this person’s a blonde. This person is angry, that person is happy, this person is — neither. How are we all one?

And so I would like to remind people, if I’m correct in what I’m about to say, that the manner in which we’re all one is that we are all at essence that same light. You can call it the Christ, you can call it the self, you can call it the Atman. You can call it the pearl of great price. It doesn’t matter what you call it — treasure buried in a field. Whatever you call it. We are that, we are that light that is clothed in these bodies and it goes through this entire journey. But the way in which we are all one, and the crucial distinction of us being all one, is that all of us are that same light.

And I’m beginning to be aware of that light in people, and so my own sense of unitiveness is growing. And so that’s the comment I would like to make before we close, Graham. Thank you.

GW: To build very quickly on that, I know we’ve got a couple of minutes left, just to build on that…. Even as science and spirituality begin to unify, those that have approached life from a more spiritual perspective, absolutely, we are all each and part of the light. And at a … even at a profound scientific level, within the cells of our body, we are deeply and energetically connected to each other, because we all contain the same elemental building blocks, or the atomic building blocks of our structure that connect us very deeply to the essence of spirituality.

So science is very profoundly linked to spirituality; spirituality is very profoundly linked to science. So it acts as that bridge, the embodiment of a bridge between the three-dimensional physical, core body to a — pardon me — our fourth and fifth-dimensional light bodies.

SB: Good points, Geoff. Thank you.

GD: The other thing that’s coming up for me, which Archangel Michael referenced earlier, is — I’m thinking about how we create our own reality, we build our own reality. So as we’re starting to wrap up the show today, one of the points that came across was that — and a number of you have already made it in addition to Archangel Michael — is that there will be a December 22nd. And our perception will most likely change, but the idea is that we are sending with Earth, en masse, and that we’ll be connected to Earth, Earth is raising to a higher vibration, higher dimension, as we are. And so we may not see major, major changes, but it depends on our orientation. Any last minute comments on that, folks?

LD: And the orientation is love. Gaia is returning to the vibration of love. She has said, “No more,” to all the lower illusions of separation, of hatred, of creative control, of hurting her. So as we go with her we embrace love. That’s the only thing that counts. That’s our essence. It’s why we’re here.

GD: Well said,  [ ? ] wrap up today’s show of An Hour with an Angel which has been modified to an hour and a half with several angels! So we are grateful that you joined us today, and we hope that you found this format helpful. Please join us again next week.
