You do not always see, or, more importantly, acknowledge the change. And one of the things I would like you to do is to begin to more clearly and vociferously acknowledge the changes that each of you are experiencing, within and without…You are to expect miracles. You are to expect expansion.

GD: Hello, and welcome to An Hour with an Angel, with Steve Beckow, founder of the Golden Age of Gaia and author of Building Nova Earth — Toward a World that Works for Everyone, and Linda Dillon, author of The Great Awakening. It’s a pleasure to be with you. I’m GD.

Our guest today is Archangel Michael. So, with that, I’ll pass it over to you, Steve.

Steve Beckow: Thank you, Graham. And just before we get underway, you’ve done a workshop over the weekend. Can you…?

GD: I have!

SB: … can you tell us a little bit about it, and how it went?

GD: Yeah. There… I attended a retreat here in Vermont this past weekend. And it was a real pleasure and a real honor. As you know, and perhaps our listeners know, I’ve taken a step back this summer, doing radio work, but my heart is still there as a lightworker. And the workshop I did was entitled Heart Centered Living: Embodying the Heart of a Peaceful Warrior. So it was all about stepping into our hearts; living with open hearts and with the knowledge that when we do that we step into a world full of joy and miraculous possibilities, including greater connection with Source, ourselves, each other, our beloved Gaia and all beings on her.

So it was this really wonderful connective, powerful, high vibrational experience that I was just deeply honored to be part of. And I know the participants expressed feeling really grateful, and it felt like where we are headed as a theme. So it was a welcome experience.

SB: Well, Graham, I’m not sure I made it clear to the listeners that you led the workshop.

GD: Right. Yeah. I did! [laugh]

SB: Is this your first… Is this your first time?

GD: First time doing this kind of workshop. I did some stuff at the Sedona conference, but more as a larger public speaking engagement in terms of… addressing some of this theme. But this was more of a roll up your sleeves, let’s dive in, do the work, and really open our hearts. So it was a really beautiful experience.

SB: Wonderful. Well, I hope we both see more from you in the future and that we’re able to attend it. In the months ahead, perhaps we’ll have the wherewithal to travel back east.
Well, let me welcome Linda, who’s been away for a bit. Linda, welcome back.

Linda Dillon: Thanks. It’s great to be back. And I want to thank those who stood in for me while I was gone as well — Christina Mahler and Blossom Goodchild. And I know that their shows were absolutely wonderful. But I have to tell you guys, it is wonderful to be back and feeling pretty much like myself again.

One of the reasons, too, I wanted to have a chance to not just say hi this morning, but I wanted to share some of the miraculous things that have been happening. And particularly in my meditation this morning with Archangel Michael — well, with the entire Council of Love at that point, but with Archangel Michael in particular, getting ready for this momentous occasion, which Hour with an Angel always feels huge because I know it’s our chance as InLight Radio to speak to each other — but Archangel Michael came in very strongly, huge — bigger than my house! — and indicated to me that it’s time for us to up the ante, that he is upping the ante, and that the realm and the level in which we are communicating, working, acting, playing… the bar is being raised.
Now, he asked me, as we begin, to remind each of you to be in your hearts as you listen, not only listening to this Hour with an Angel today, tonight, but to listen with your hearts consistently, and to make sure that his blue flame of truth is burning brightly.
So, take a nice deep breath and make sure you’re going into your heart and you’re feeling that beautiful flame of blue of our wonderful archangel of peace.

Michael also reminds us that eons ago he gave us his sword and shield, and he gave us these as tools — particularly useful during this time of change — to destroy illusion, to keep away falsehood, to cut away those cords, those false grids of vasanas that do not serve us.

So, in your dominant hand, feel that sword of Michael, and in your other hand, feel the shield of Michael, that shield that protects us and keeps everything that is not of love away from us. It just bounces off our shields. But also during this time of creation it’s important to realize that our shields are also magnificent magnets, and on our shields, individually, we’ve carved, we’ve written, we’ve inscribed the creations that we wish to bring forward for Nova Earth, not just as a collective, but individually as well. So it’s everything from clean water and clean air to personal partnership and sacred union.

So, in your other hand, feel your shield, and here we are — what a team, across the world, equipped as we begin our work again with Archangel Michael.Thanks, Steve.

SB: Thank you, Linda, for that reminder. And I’ll give you a chance now to transition into receiving Archangel Michael. And of course I can certainly say that I’m ready, I’m sure Graham’s ready, and I’m sure all of us on the Nova Earth Foundation are ready, and looking forward to the ante being upped. So, welcome, Archangel Michael.

Archangel Michael: And welcome to you. Yes, I am Michael, archangel of peace, warrior of love, bringer of news. Welcome.

SB: Thank you.

AAM: And yes, as I have said to the channel, we have upped the ante. Now, why do I say this? I embrace you. I embrace each and every one of you, my brothers and sisters, this night. I embrace you with the fullness of my love and the fullness of mission and purpose that we have committed to the Mother, our Divine Mother, long ago.

We are able to raise the bar, to simply speak to your hearts in this way and form, not that the words are different, but the vibration can reach more deeply within you. And yes, the level of information shifts slightly as well, because you, my beloved friends, have been diligent in your work, diligent in your commitment of your hearts, your souls, your beings, your bodies, to go forward in this Ascension and this unfoldment of your plan and our plan, within the greater plan.

I say this, and I remind you of this, because we want you to know that your forward progress, your growth, is not only noted, it is celebrated, and we are proud of you — proud in the sense that you are brothers and sisters, colleagues, and fellow travelers. You are the masters who inhabit the planet of Gaia, who walk this beloved Earth in this period of miraculous change, and in a period of change that has never been experienced, on Gaia or elsewhere. You are dealing with the fading hologram of the old 3rd while anchoring and embracing the reality of your sweet selves in the 5th.

Now, we know this is not always easy, but it is your diligence, your commitment that brings you to this point of change. You do not always see, or, more importantly, acknowledge the change. And one of the things I would like you to do is to begin to more clearly and vociferously acknowledge the changes that each of you are experiencing, within and without.

Now, my beloved friend, Steve, you are very good at expressing the shifts, the openings, the expansions, the questions, the doubts, the outstanding with our platform. And we thank you for this, because in this what you are doing is you are sparking the same awakening in others. You are also giving them permission to acknowledge their own process and shift.

But just like you, Graham, you have stepped forward into a new realm of existence, and you have said, not only to me, but to all, not only do I love it, but this feels right. Prior to that stepping forward, you had need for hiatus, and this is also something that many of you sometimes shy away from. Yes, the channel as well. There are times when you simply need to say, “I am willing. I am anxious. I am excited. But, Michael, can I catch my breath first?” Never — and dear hearts, we have been together for a very, very long time — never will I say no, even in the midst of the most outrageous battle. We will create time and space for you to breathe, to gather your energies, to pick up your sword and shield and begin yet again.

Now, I know you have a multitude of questions that you have brought forward this day, and I invite you to begin.

SB: Thank you, Archangel Michael. And thank you for the kind words you said as well.

The first question…. What I’m going to do is work my way through several topics which I think are of interest to readers and try to get an update in those fields.

So, the first one I wanted to ask you about is that several channelers have discussed what they call an event, or a major shift in consciousness, that they say is happening in September 2013. Now, you’ve said that Ascension will happen sometime next year. We’ve talked about how everyone wants to ascend together. So, how are we to interpret this event? Is it an early Ascension of some people? Is it not an Ascension but just a burst of energy? And will it be like December 21st, 2012, where something did happen, and it happened for Gaia, but we weren’t able to experience it quite as much? What are we to expect?

AAM: You are to expect miracles. You are to expect expansion.
Now, let me backtrack just a little. We have talked about this issue, about event — and yes, many are referring to it. But I reiterate to you, to all of you, not to discourage, but to encourage: this is a series of events. This is not simply a singular, one-time undertaking or happening. It is a series of events. And in some ways that you perhaps do not fully comprehend — and that is all right — those events are already underway.

Now, let us go back even further. Let us go back to pre-December 2012. The build-up to that time in terms of, particularly, lightworkers, but might we say the conscious collective as well, was nothing short of phenomenal — the energies that were integrated, received, welcomed, the expansion of understanding and consciousness that was integrated into your being was enormous.

Now, everybody — well, not everybody, but many of you — were focused upon a particular event and day. Now, did energetic shifts of a proportion beyond your imagination take place on that day or during that period of time? Yes. But we would not wish to dilute what took place as the build-up, as prior to Gaia anchored into the 5th dimension. Now, she is a massive being, so she is not simply, as we have said, and solely in the 5th. There are, hmm, remnants, and the ability to interact with the 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th. But her heart and her being is anchored in the 5th.

Now, you say that the human beings have not experienced the full awakening, the Samadhi. And that is so, but there has been a gradual — well, from your point of view, gradual, not from ours — a gradual awakening and massive expansion within each of your beings. And the areas of concern, of focus, of how you feel, the shift from your mental and your emotional to your heart consciousness has continued to grow, so that more and more you are anchored, sometimes knowingly and sometimes not, more clearly than ever in the 5th reality.

The hologram of the old 3rd dissipates and disappears. It is evaporating like mist on a sunny day. Now, what is occurring is also that you have still many reaching out into that mist, because it is familiar, it is what is known, even when it has not been particularly of great service or joy. But it is the known, and therefore it is comfortable.

So, now we come into the present time. And yes, humanity, in a very mature, expansive position has said, “We wish to have the opportunity. We wish to ascend as one community in the unity of heart, in the unity of purpose because that is why each and every one of us came.” And that plea was heard and received by the Mother, and the plan, given flexibility, altered somewhat to accommodate the soul request, this prayer.

But in this time, there has also been a great deal of continuation of the Ascension, both of the individual, of the collective, of the planet, of all concerned, and a deepening of that anchoring and awareness of love, the deepening of your heart consciousness, of what you care about and what seems relatively unimportant. It does not mean that the remnants of the old 3rd still do not bite at your heels at times. We know they do. But by and large, overall, the focus, the shift of attention and of your very being, has changed. That is continuing.

Now, it was never the plan of the Mother that the opportunity given to humanity would simply continue indefinitely. Now, you know, even though we understand and can inject into your timelines what you think of as time , we operate on a different scale. But in terms of your scale it was never intended that this simply be an indefinite delay. Not only do you know this because I say it, that is in fact the last way I wish you to judge this. Use your discernment and go to your heart and there you will know. Of course this cannot be indefinite!

So, while humanity is in this process of expansion into the collective, into the larger form — and we are going to talk about that because there are many examples of ignition that you are seeing upon your planet; but to return to what you are saying and asking about the event: the event will come to pass. But it is not simply what you are looking for in terms of instantaneous combustion. It is an event of Ascension. It is an event of becoming. It is an event of anchoring of the fullness of your being, of your heart consciousness. But it is not in a single moment.

Now, September marks, in very human terms, the culmination of gestation, of your nine months to be rebirthed, to be reborn, to be reborn as the New You, as Nova beings upon Nova Earth. So yes, there are ‘events,’ plural, and they include many of the things that we have discussed in terms of your star brothers and sisters and their participation — active participation — on the ground and above, with you, as equals, as family; the restructuring financially, socially. Your civilizations have not been very civilized in your sense of the word. So what you are bringing, through a series of events, is the gift of grace, the gift of love, the adherence of your judicial system, of your systems of fairness, with Universal Law.

All of this is underway. So take heart. Do not look to a single moment in time, but see the dominos and see the chain, the ripple effect. And where does it start? My sweet brothers and sisters, it starts with you. And that is why I have said this day we are upping the ante; because the responsibility lies not only with us; it lies with the masters on the ground as well.

This is a sacred partnership that we have formed and entered before time. So let us begin.

SB: All right. Thank you, Lord. That’s very helpful. Now, I’m going to … I have such a number of questions that I think we’re going to have to limit ourselves to between one and two minutes for our answers, if we’re going to get through them all.

The next one — just a short answer on the significance of the chaotic nodes that the Hathors have mentioned. How… how should we respond? Well, first of all, do they exist? But second of all, how should we respond to them? How are we to be with these chaotic nodes, please?

AAM: You are to be in your heart, in balance with your mind, your emotional body, your causal body, and the super-intelligence that each and every one of you has. It is to draw upon your sword and shield and every other tool that you have. Now, let us also say that what you are experiencing, it feels like chaos — and it is — but chaos is also part and parcel of the 6th dimension, of creative chaos. You are in the midst of creating a new big bang, as it were. So, stay anchored. Stay calm. Be the observer. Discern what is real, what is not; where to place your energy to be there as a collective for one another, to be the warrior and the peacemaker.

So, do the chaotic nodes exist? Yes. Are they a gift of creation? Yes.

SB: All right. That’s very helpful. Thank you very much for that. I’d like to turn to the global currency reset now, which is one of the early events of NESARA, or at least the precursors of NESARA. And perhaps you could tell us — the reset goes a step forward, then it goes a step back… Who’s holding it up? When — I’m not asking for dates, but — generally, when can we expect to see it?

And then after that, I’d like to ask you if you have a word to the various lightworkers who will find themselves new millionaires what your vision is for them and the new wealth that they will have come into. Of course, not trying to abrogate their free will, but just if you have any encouragement for them. Thank you.

AAM: I have great encouragement for all of you. And yes, I am more than willing to address this topic.

Understand, this is already underway, and yes, has been for some time. You are correct insofar as some of those myths, of the existing third reality, of those who are afraid and who do not wish to relinquish control, who hang on to greed as if it is the mighty jewels of the Mother. But I also want to include in this those — and we are talking energetically, now — those individuals who take pride and see it as an innate value that they struggle, that they are in poverty, that they are in lack; that there is an equation that somehow this makes them worthy and virtuous.

Now, we have not addressed this before, but now it is time because it is time, my brothers and sisters, where you can do something about it. Send the energy of my blue flame of truth to all those who, in their humility, have believed that there is innate value in struggle and lack; that somehow they believe that this is their karma, that this is what they have agreed in terms of service to the Mother; that this is what they have agreed to do in terms of their journey.

Those who are of greed, control, and shall we say in positions of power, are being worked on mightily, both above and below. But do not forget this other group. What you are doing is breaking old paradigms of belief systems. So send them energy as well. This will come to pass quite quickly, probably more quickly than even you imagine. This is not something that has need to drag on and on and on.

Now, do I have advice for those who find themselves in a position of abundance? Well, let me say this, in very practical terms. On your planet of Gaia, out of the realm of the old 3rd there have been thousands and thousands and thousands of new millionaires every day. And each of them has been given the golden gift and the ability to share, to create, and to assist in the creation of Nova Earth. Have they? Well, some have and some have not.

So, now you are creating the new realm. And it is not about giving away every sou that you have, although — listen to what I say to thee! — if you do give away every penny, it matters not, because you have the power, within each and every one of you, to create what you desire and to bring forth.

This is simply a demonstration, a tangible demonstration so that you will understand your ability to create, not simply in the spiritual realm, but in the tangible realm of physicality.
But yes, it is about sharing. It is about taking this abundance, in every realm, to create more abundance in the collective and on Gaia, so that there is more love.

So, that is the test. Do your gifts create more love? Are they an expression of love for the planet, for the kingdom? Is it new energy? Is it clean energy? Is it clean food? Is it clean air? Is it clean emotionally? Or are there still strings and cords and bonds? Because none of that can exist.

You come together to create new sense of community, of unity of heart. That is why you, finally, are being gifted. So what I do ask you, do not invest in the old, because what you will do is recreate the old. Oh, yes, you have that power as well. And if we see that, then it would be within our purview to intervene.

SB: Well, I’m going to put in a bald-faced pitch for the Hope Chest, Lord, that the Hope Chest stands ready to receive any contributions which will then be sent right out to lightworkers. We regard this as the beginning of our work, which we’ve waited for for about 22 months now. So we regard this as us getting down to work.

AAM: The Hope Chest is where I would encourage people to donate.

SB: Thank you, Lord. Turning now to something else associated, generally associated with the reset — and that’s the new republic in the United States. There’s a lot of people, many lightworkers, who are saying, “Oh, now Obama’s going to get turfed out the door, and we’re going to have a new government.” But my understanding is quite the contrary: Obama is a lightworker, and he’s here to lead us into the golden age, and he’s not going to get turfed out of the door. Could you comment, please?

AAM: Why would I throw my brother out the door when he has endured as much as any of you? Yes, he is a lightworker, a star being. Has he made mistakes? Yes. Does he know that? Yes. Does he suffer for it at night? Yes. Does this sound familiar to each of you?

SB: Yes…

AAM: Of course it does. So, no. Barack Obama is stepping into the fullness of his role. He is not on his way out the door, he is on his way in.

SB: Okay. Thank you, Lord. The HSBC has told the Vatican it won’t any longer be their banker. Can you tell us what the significance and ramifications of that move are, please?

AAM: It is a combination of events. It is a bringing of integrity to the financial and to some, shall we say, banking systems. But the Vatican is also in a process of massive shifting as well. And the management of their resources are going to be significantly altered.

As you well know, Francis is one that likes to live simply — both then and now. And yes, he is over-lit, as you know. So the Vatican Bank will find itself in a dilemma, and it is a delicious dilemma, of how to proceed. And what that entire dilemma brings to the forefront is how do we proceed with integrity and ethics? And their CEO, as it were, will not allow the progression to go forward without those considerations.

SB: Okay. Thank you, Lord. Now, two questions about NESARA, questions that keep coming up. And I must admit that I scratch my head over them myself.

The first is, readers ask, if everyone receives money, does it not make sense that prices will rise accordingly and wipe out the new-found prosperity?

AAM: Now, this is why I am speaking to you this day of looking at things from a higher plane. The higher plane that I am referring to… come with me; come with me, my brothers and sisters. The precursor, the foundation of this shift is an anchoring in the divine qualities, and the divine qualities are of love, of generosity, of prudence, of clarity… you know the list. That has been worked on for decades and decades, but it has been worked on diligently in the past year. The reason why escalation does not take place, which would render such abundance useless, is because the qualities are anchored within. There is a desire not to grab and go, but to share, to see prosperity and beauty for all.
So, this is your signal. As you see the divine qualities in each other, what you are seeing is the capacity within the human collective to deal with such abundance — fairly, genuinely, and generously. Greed and control and this desire to get ahead at the expense of harming another does not exist in the 5th.

SB: Here’s a related question, Lord. If everyone receives money and does not need to work, how will hospitals run and garbage be collected?

AAM: First of all, what you think of as healing — and we will include western medicine and hospitals in this — yes, people work for a salary. But, by and large, many who work in hospitals, this concrete example — and we do not simply mean doctors and nurses, physicians’ assistants and those who are laboratory technicians — they also do so because they were guided by their hearts that that was part of their contribution, their mission and purpose and their passion. And when you remove some of the strictures that make such jobs difficult, then in fact what you have are people who care and who wish to contribute. And the hospitals will open to various kinds of healing.

Now, do not also forget that part of this expansion is star technology, not only in terms of the healing ships and the healers that are available to you, but also in terms of technology, to understand on a whole different scale of rapidity how quickly things can be taken care of. But it does a huge disservice to suggest that people only work within a hospital or within a school or within a municipality simply because it is self-serving. That is not so.

Come back with me to the issue of the divine qualities of compassion and the desire to heal those who have been injured and who are in pain of all kinds.

Now, garbage: Is this not interesting? First of all we suggest to you, garbage, human detritus? One and the same. The technology, even the human technology to deal with the elimination of garbage has existed on your planet for some time. It has not been profitable or politically desirable to introduce that level of assistance simply because of job creation. And we do not naysay that. It has given some who had no other opportunities the ability to feed their families and to feel that they were committed and participating in society.

Now, this is where humility truly is at work, because this is a humble job. But add to this already available human technology your star brothers and sisters. Do you think, after all this time traveling throughout space, living on-board ships, that they do not have the capacity to cleanly, efficiently, instantaneously eliminate garbage? So that simply will not be an issue.

One of the most delightful things that will occur — now, we are not saying that garbage will disappear completely. What will disappear is the human arrogance which we witness in littering. Littering is a cousin, a first cousin, to bullying, to taking advantage. This level of arrogance, to throw garbage not only where it offends other human beings, where it hurts animals and plant life, but it is so disrespectful to Gaia!

So, you will see these changes, and you will be surprised at the number of people in the interim who step forward and say, “That’s okay. I am not above picking up garbage.”

SB: Thank you, Lord. Actually, in earlier years I had a very great head of steam for going into waste management, given some of the technologies that were being developed for total recycling, so….

Now, before we run out of time, I must ask this question for editor Andrew Erdsley, who very much would like an answer to it. Is SaLuSa currently speaking through a channel?

AAM: SaLuSa continues to speak and whisper in the ears of many. What you are asking is has SaLuSa chosen a brand new channel to be her vehicle — his vehicle. And the answer is not as yet. Shortly you will be speaking to SaLuSa directly.

SB: I can’t wait! That’s absolutely wonderful. Okay.

Could you tell us something about how containment has gone? We’ve put certain people in containment. But then you’ve said, well, other people are coming out of containment, like Vladimir Putin, for instance.

Where are we at with containment? And what has been its impact on the Illuminati and other cabals?

AAM: Well, there are still many in containment, and they will remain there until the completion of the shift, or the completion of their own regenerative process, which we see at this point will be post-shift, post-Ascension. And then they can emerge into either a different form, returning home, or return to the reneweder.

And we do not single these ones out, but there have been releases, or there has been a lessening of the light. But understand, containment was not done with lesser beings, it was not done casually. And so the severity of the need for penetration for most continues.

Now, what it does, and it does have a ripple effect, by the way, because not only do those in containment receive the penetration from the light, we have not spoken of this before, but there is also an external penetration of light to all who are, shall we say, on a similar journey or engaging in similar activities. So, what we say about the Illuminati or what you think of as the dark forces or the cabal is that they have been penetrated and they are part of that fading mist.

So perhaps you wish, with me, to take this opportunity to simply wave goodbye and wish them well.

Now, you say to me, “Well, Michael, then how are we seeing such upheaval throughout the world?” And I wish to speak to this, yes, before we run out of time!

What has come to the surface is not simply political strife. It is the striving for freedom, but it is also the removal, the clearing, the elimination of the core issue of humanity, which is self-worth. It is not simply this sect against that sect, this power regime against that power regime. Because if you had the full knowing of the sanctity, your divinity, there would be no need for such strife.

So this has risen to the surface, and you are hearing, “I deserve, we deserve.” Now, do we wish to see this through needless bloodshed? No. And many of you are working with me night and day in these war-torn areas. But what we are doing is infusing the pure white light of love and of worth into all sectors, so that my mission — and yours — of peace, on Earth and within each and every heart, will come to pass, and pass quickly. It is not the beginning of another realm or round of wars. It is the completion.

SB: Okay. Thank you for that.

Now, we have about four minutes before we run out of time, and this is a bit of a complex topic. But Matthew Ward told us in I think his June message that Obama is working with the galactics; that there are galactics in the National Security Agency; that the National Security Agency was gathering evidence on the Illuminati, and that explains why Obama was supporting the… well, if not supporting, then not doing something about the spying of the NSA. It’s really directed at the Illuminati.

Can you talk a little more generally about Obama’s working with the galactics? And if you can — I mean, you may not be able to, but if you can — on the galactics in the other agencies and what they’re doing to bring forward a cleansing of those agencies, please?

AAM: Let me say that your star brothers and sisters, the galactics and the inter-galactics are everywhere. And yes, they are certainly very deep within the administration not only of the United States but might we say most powerful nations, and those that you would not even deign as powerful.

So yes, of course Obama is working with the galactics, and he has been for some time. And that partnership has been important. Now, there have been some very rough patches, and we would be remiss if we did not mention this. But it is not yet time to discuss the fullness of those rough patches. They will come to light.

The purpose of what you think of as spying has been, yes, targeted to Illuminati or those who are not acting in the best interests of the collective, whether it is the United States, Israel, Botswana, Switzerland, Germany, Russia — it does not matter. There are more of your star beings, your brothers and sisters on the ground than you can fathom. And one of the reasons why this approach… not only has the approach been taken to assist in this shift, it has also been taken to anchor that energy fully and completely on Gaia.

So, the vision of a fleet of starships arising, coming across the horizon and causing fear has been circumvented. Look to the person standing next to you and look in their eyes. There is a very good chance that you are looking at one of your star brothers or sisters.

SB: All right, Lord. Thank you…

AAM: They are…

SB: Sorry?

AAM: … they are on the ground.

SB: Wonderful. Thank you very much, Lord.

I hear the music, and you’ve given us a very complete overview of what’s been happening. Thank you very much for that.

AAM: It is my pleasure always. Go with my love.

SB: Thank you, Lord.

AAM: Farewell.

SB: Farewell.
