Spirituality as a viable alternative to religion.

White light meditation  As the age of Enlightenment was and religion once again becomes a political weapon, the world faces a moral dilemma about it’s faith and path to truth.  The question has been raised; is there an alternative to the traditional religious moral codes that will allow humans to transcend the current challenges. Humanist spirituality claims to be a viable alternative to religion in the twenty first century and this essay will discuss why this is true.  ‘Spirituality’, here is defined as a quest to get closer to nature, find the spirit within, reach ones highest potential (Swinburne 2015) and find enlightenment which often involves transcendence (Holmes, Hughes & Julian 2015). By giving meaning to spirituality through an ethical and humanist view we see ‘meaning’ as the relationship between two sorts of things; signs and what they signify.  All religions, according to Durkheim (1858-1917) have two basic qualities which define them as a religion; belief and rites, which consist of “states of opinion” and “determined modes of action”. (Durkheim, 1912 p 137) These are further classified into the ‘sacred’ which is venerated and the ‘profane’ which is everything else. He also believed he found the Sociological evidence for religion in totemism (Durkheim, 1912 p 231) when studying the Australian Aboriginal religion.  He found that almost everything among the aboriginals is sacred to some degree, yet despite this he refused to consider that many totemists might actually experience the world as inherently sacred.  It was actually crucial to Durkheim's theory that they did not. Durkheim states that from his observation of religion anything can be sacred, a rock, tree, word, plant, animal or idea, however he also states that  “neither man nor nature is inherently sacred”.  He goes on to define religion as a “society whose members are united by the fact that they think in the same way in regard to the sacred world and it’s relations with the profane world”, this commonality and practices is what’s known as a ‘church’. He says that throughout history we do not find a single religion without a church (Durkheim, 1912 pp140). Despite Durkheim's explanation of sacred and profane, religion has a number of fundamental flaws which humanist spirituality claims it can resolve.

Throughout history we have seen that art, music, and society was based around religious beliefs.  As the beliefs changed or branched off society changed and the creative arts found new form. Modern technology, science and archeological evidence has destroyed much of the old ways with empirical proof that much of what was believed is untrue.  When the church was ‘defeated’ per say by this scientific and rational thought, secular humanism was seeded as a fundamental pathway to truth (Swinburne 2015).  World views have therefore seen a subtle yet noticeable shift away from the religious institutions to the new form of spiritualism which allows for unrestricted faith, direct connection to source and a blending of beliefs without condemnation from a “Church”.   The reasons people are leaving faith based institutions, (which Durkheim states as needing community or a “Church” in which to exist ) in favour of spirituality are five fold.  Firstly Religions have an ‘us and them’ mentality, where ‘their’ sacred beliefs and rituals are the correct ones and others are wrong therefore if we are to believe the Torah, Koran and Bible, killing the ‘other’ is ok (Tremblay 2010, p 25). Secondly that Humans are the Masters of the Universe and the earth was created for them.  Thus creating a divide between animals, nature, the cosmos and man. (Tremblay 2010, p 25) Thirdly there is a moral dichotomy between the accepted morality of the people and that of the government and leaders, which is one of the main reasons for the number of conflicts on the planet today (Tremblay 2010, pp 25-26). A fourth defect in religious teachings is the concept of hell and the intimidation of non believers by religious authorities. This is immoral as it condemns two-thirds of the population to exclusion, persecution and even genocide. (Tremblay 2010, p 26) The final weakness that spirituality trumps religion, is the religious stance that the human mind and body are separate, and that in order to speak to God we need an intermediary such as a priest or Sharman type person, who themselves have gone through a ritualist process to elevate them into the realm of sacred.

Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955) suggested that “A man’s ethical behaviour should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties and needs; no religious basis is necessary”  (Tremblay 2010, pp 23). Ethics deals with morality; how moral judgement and moral behaviour are practiced and a code of ethics specifies this in detail. Humans intuitively have a moral code which is separate from any god or supernatural existence (Tremblay 2010, pp 28). The pages of history however, are full of religious tyranny, conflict and wars, with many religions giving salvation in the afterlife to those who suffer the most so they won’t fight the oppression of religious doctrine whilst alive.  The bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945, show that todays power hungry elite are operating in a moral vacuum, thus the humanistic alternative becomes ever more enticing (Tremblay 2010, pp 31).  Karl Marx(1818 -1883) believed that religion was merely another tool in the capitalist arsenal of weapons against the masses (Holmes, Hughes & Julian, 2015). With this view it is no wonder that Marx was a leading thinker of the humanist ideology. At it’s core a humanistic approach to behaviour and an ethical response to environmental and sociological issues is the answer. By taking away the sacred, placing emphasis on personal responsibility and morals, gives hope to humanity that they can succeed and gain liberty.(Holmes, Hughes & Julian 2015)

In his Introduction to the Contribution to the Critique of Hegel s Philosophy of Law (1844),  Marx writes, “Religion is the self-consciousness and self-esteem of man who has either not yet found himself or has already lost himself again. But man is no abstract being encamped outside the world. Man is the world of man, the state and society. This state, this society, produce religion, an inverted world-consciousness, because they are an inverted world. Religion is the general theory of that world, its encyclopaedic compendium, its logic in a popular form, its spiritualistic point d honneur, its enthusiasm, its moral sanction, its solemn complement, its universal source of consolation and justification. It is the fantastic realisation of the human essence because the human essence has no true reality. The struggle against religion is therefore indirectly a fight against the world of which religion is the spiritual aroma” (Gunasekara, V, 2015).   The reason this is so poignant is because it is this ideology that has given humanist spirituality its popularity.  The population today is driving for happiness and fulfilment, not just for themselves but on a global scale.  Religion fails to offer this. Humanistic Spiritually offers connection, love and compassion, with a philosophical world view of humanist code of ethics which affirms the inherent worth of all human beings(Tremblay 2010, p 29).  The core beliefs and approach to humanist spirituality is the notion that all sentient beings life purpose is to attain happiness.  This is attained through high self esteem, personal fulfilment, spiritual growth, personal accomplishments and connection to source or unity consciousness along with moral character development and release from emotional baggage (Tremblay 2010, p 28). Humanist believe that religion is not needed any more as the framework for moral guidance and that perhaps those who deem to be the most pious have be seen to act in the least moral way.  In fact the pursuit of happiness, success and accomplishment is a journey that is far more important to ones growth than the destination.  Staying fluid in one’s beliefs and allowing the psyche to develop as is needed seems to be the way of the world these days.  With more spiritual centres opening across the world and Australia, giving lessons on mediation, healing techniques and a plethora of spiritual tools it’s not wonder the global population is embracing this new form of living.

The New age movement, which started in the 1980’s and quickly gained popularity, allows for spiritual guidance on connecting with nature, mother earth, human responsibility and social justice.  There is a forward projection of a coming golden age where peace reigns and humans unite through love.  It focuses on the individual and moves away from the community based beliefs, increasing personality responsibility and decreasing victimisation and blame. (Holmes, Hughes & Julian 2015 p 289) Humanist spirituality is an extension of this movement and provides a solution for those who seek an alternative to religion.  Flo Wineriter, President of the Humanist Utah, defines humanism as a progressive philosophy of life, motivated by human hope and compassion, free from superstition but committed to responsible behaviour that will enhance the quality of life on this planet for all. Whilst maintaining “faith in the human capacity to choose good over evil without expectation of reward in another life” (Wineriter, 1996). The values based on what is good for the whole and the depth of resources available based on human stories, on insight and wisdom gained through experience can be understood by all as we share a common biology. Ultimately humanist spirituality teaches that we have the power to resolve life’s problems through rational thought and responsible behaviour; without magic, supernatural beings, sacred totems or dogmatic rules of religious institutions.  We see the humanistic tendencies of humans in times of great tragedy when strangers help strangers and everyone pulls together for the greater good. In saying that, at the same time that the humanist spiritual movement developed as a response to the new age movement, so to has fundamentalists.  Globalisation, impoverished masses and immigration causing denationalisation has had a destabilising factor on a number of areas.  The Fundamentalists have reacted in the opposite way to the Humanists by increasing their faith and placing literal meanings on their specific teachings. (Holmes, Hughes & Julian 2015 pp 293-297)   Marx's view of religion is that of an illusion of the human mind, trying to explain the seemingly unexplainable.  The purpose of religion is primarily used by the elite to conceal reality in a veil of delusion and to justify that which is often unjustifiable to the masses (Gunasekara, V, 2015).  It is quite clear by the number of contentious situations that have risen, fundamentalism is not a way forward, it is certainly not an alternative to traditional religion and the situation needs to be addressed so it doesn’t erupt into a full blown war.

Although Religion would be difficult to irradiate altogether, this essay has clearly shown that there are viable alternatives for humans to liberate their minds, maintain a belief in something greater than themselves yet not succumb to the oppressive doctrines of religion, and that is humanist spirituality.  Durkheim’s manifesto on religion explored one version of how to look at religion in it’s simplest form and that is totemism, focusing on the sacred and profane, with it’s basis surrounding a church like institution. However the key aspect of the new age movement of humanist spiritualism is a movement away from religious institutions to that of a personal fluid expression of spirituality.   Ultimately the responsibility for overcoming the current challenges and creating the kind of world in which we wish live rests with us.  Clearly this essay has demonstrated that ethical and humanist spirituality is not only a viable alternative to religion, it truly is the way forward if we want to save this planet, live with love, be happy and help humanity.

What is your Soul?

What-is-a-soul-According to:-

The Essenes

The awakening of the life of the soul is primordial in man’s life. According to the teaching of the Essenes, if one does not live accordingly to what was foreseen for its incarnation, the soul sacrifices itself and becomes atrophied into the physical body. This duality creates sufferings and diseases. Since the beginning of time, the Essenes have been celebrated therapists and today they work with the energies of Archangel Gabriel to reconnect man with his eternal soul.
In its essence, the soul is the spouse of the divine spirit. It keeps in memory all the experiences and knowledge that man has acquired on Earth. The soul comes like a guiding Light. It incarnates with man from his first breath and remains very present in the first months of his life. With time, the child’s soul is exposed to all kinds of influences that permeate the etheric water that surrounds it (its aura). The transparency of this water is vital: if it is pure, the soul can connect with man. If man listens to his soul, it allows him to awake in a higher consciousness and brings him happiness and plenitude.
If man’s thoughts, feelings and impressions which he is living at each moment of his life are cloudy, they are printed on the subtle substance of its soul and can go as far as to smother the soul and live in its place. It is very rare these days to reach an adult age while keeping a contact with one’s soul… The soul sacrifices itself and becomes a prisoner of the body. It suffers of not being able to have a conscious contact with man. Being unable to find his place, man is lost and the divine world cannot come on Earth to accomplish the work of Light.

Aristotle

  • Aristotle uses his familiar matter/form distinction to answer the question “What is soul?” At the beginning of De Anima II.1, he says that there are three sorts of substance:
    1. Matter (potentiality)
    2. Form (actuality)
    3. The compound of matter and form
  • Aristotle is interested in compounds that are alive. These - plants and animals - are the things that have souls. Their souls are what make them living things.
  • Since form is what makes matter a “this,” the soul is the form of a living thing. (Not its shape, but its actuality, that in virtue of which it is the kind of living thing that it is.)

According to Aristotle's theory, a soul is a particular kind of nature, a principle that accounts for change and rest in the particular case of living bodies, i.e. plants, nonhuman animals and human beings. The relation between soul and body, on Aristotle's view, is also an instance of the more general relation between form and matter: thus an ensouled, living body is a particular kind of in-formed matter.

A living thing’s soul is its capacity to engage in the activities that are characteristic of living things of its natural kind. What are those activities? Some are listed in DA II.1; others in DA II.2:

    • Self-nourishment
    • Growth
    • Decay
    • Movement and rest (in respect of place)
    • Perception
    • Intellect
  • So anything that nourishes itself, that grows, decays, moves about (on its own, not just when moved by something else), perceives, or thinks is alive. And the capacities of a thing in virtue of which it does these things constitute its soul. The soul is what is causally responsible for the animate behavior (the life activities) of a living thing.
  • Degrees of soul

    1. There is a nested hierarchy of soul functions or activities (413a23).
      1. Growth, nutrition, (reproduction)
      2. Locomotion, perception
      3. Intellect (= thought)
    2. This gives us three corresponding degrees of soul:
      1. Nutritive soul (plants)
      2. Sensitive soul (all animals)
      3. Rational soul (human beings)
    3. These are nested in the sense that anything that has a higher degree of soul also has all of the lower degrees. All living things grow, nourish themselves, and reproduce. Animals not only do that, but move and perceive. Humans do all of the above and reason, as well. (There are further subdivisions within the various levels, which we will ignore.)

    Soul

    Soul and Body

    1. A key question for the ancient Greeks (as it still is for many people today) is whether the soul can exist independently of the body. (Anyone who believes in personal immortality is committed to the independent existence of the soul.) Plato (as we know from the Phaedo) certainly thought that the soul could exist separately. Here is what Aristotle has to say on this topic:

      . . . the soul does not exist without a body and yet is not itself a kind of body. For it is not a body, but something which belongs to a body, and for this reason exists in a body, and in a body of such-and-such a kind (414a20ff).

      So on Aristotle’s account, although the soul is not a material object, it is not separable from the body. (When it comes to the intellect, however, Aristotle waffles. See DA III.4)

    2. Aristotle’s picture is not Cartesian:
      1. There is no inner/outer contrast. The soul is not an inner spectator, in direct contact only with its own perceptions and other psychic states, having to infer the existence of a body and an “external” world.There is thus no notion of the privacy of experience, the incorrigibility of the mental, etc., in Aristotle’s picture.
      2. The soul is not an independently existing substance. It is linked to the body more directly: it is the form of the body, not a separate substance inside another substance (a body) of a different kind. It is a capacity, not the thing that has the capacity.It is thus not a separable soul. (It is, at most, pure thought, devoid of personality, that is separable from the body on Aristotle’s account.)
      3. Soul has little to do with personal identity and individuality. There is no reason to think that one (human) soul is in any important respect different from any other (human) soul. The form of one human being is the same as the form of any other.There is, in this sense, only soul, and not souls. You and I have different souls because we are different people. But we are different human beings because we are different compounds of form and matter. That is, different bodies both animated by the same set of capacities, by the same (kind of) soul.

Edgar Cayce

Edgar Cayce (pronounced "Kay-see") was a simple Sunday School teacher who, over the span of his lifetime (1877-1945), had more near-death experiences than anyone ever documented. Cayce learned at a young age that when he was hypnotized, he could leave his body and journey into the afterlife realms. His self-induced out-of-body experiences were identical to near-death experiences. Cayce made over 14,000 otherworldly journeys in his life and the information he gained from these journeys has astounded people all over the world.    Cayce's descriptions of the Essenes of Mount Carmel reveal the religious sect to be an ideal for others who would prepare the way for the Second Coming of Christ. 

According to the Cayce material, Jesus and Adam were different incarnations of the same Christ soul. Eve and the Virgin Mary (Jesus' twin soul) were also different incarnations of the same soul. This karmic connection between Adam and Jesus explains why Jesus was able to pay the "karmic debt" by atoning for the "sin of Adam."   According to Cayce, many other personalities from the Old Testament and history were also incarnations of Jesus. The Cayce material describes the entire Christian Bible as part of the story of Jesus' long struggle to attain "Christhood" and provide humanity a pattern to do the same.   See this article for all the incarnations http://www.near-death.com/experiences/jesus09.html

The Zohar & Kabalah

"All souls are subject to the trials of transmigration (reincarnation); and men do not know the designs of the Most High with regard to them; they know not how they are being at all times judged, both before coming into this world and when they leave it. They do not know how many transmigrations and mysterious trials they must undergo." (3)

"Souls must reenter the absolute substance whence they have emerged. But to accomplish this end they must develop all the perfections, the germ of which is planted in them; and if they have not fulfilled this condition during one life, they must commence another, a third, and so forth, until they have acquired the condition which fits them for reunion with God."

What the bible says about your soul

Matthew 10:28

And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell.

And the dust returns to the earth as it was, and the spirit returns to God who gave it.

Behold, all souls are mine; the soul of the father as well as the soul of the son is mine: the soul who sins shall die.

Then the Lord God formed the man of dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living creature.

And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.

The soul who sins shall die. The son shall not suffer for the iniquity of the father, nor the father suffer for the iniquity of the son. The righteousness of the righteous shall be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon himself.

“There was a rich man who was clothed in purple and fine linen and who feasted sumptuously every day. And at his gate was laid a poor man named Lazarus, covered with sores, who desired to be fed with what fell from the rich man's table. Moreover, even the dogs came and licked his sores. The poor man died and was carried by the angels to Abraham's side. The rich man also died and was buried, and in Hades, being in torment, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham far off and Lazarus at his side. ...

For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what shall a man give in return for his soul?

When he opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the witness they had borne.

He will render to each one according to his works: to those who by patience in well-doing seek for glory and honor and immortality, he will give eternal life; but for those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, there will be wrath and fury.

For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul?

Many are saying of my soul, there is no salvation for him in God. Selah

When he opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the witness they had borne. They cried out with a loud voice, “O Sovereign Lord, holy and true, how long before you will judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?” Then they were each given a white robe and told to rest a little longer, until the number of their fellow servants and their brothers should be complete, who were to be killed as they themselves had been.

Behold! I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed. For this perishable body must put on the imperishable, and this mortal body must put on immortality. When the perishable puts on the imperishable, and the mortal puts on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.” “O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?” ...

Message from Archangel Michael for 2014

Greeting Dear Friends and Family of Light,

The new energies are opening up for you new qualities of being. You have been tasting these on and off for some time now, but at last the reformatting of your bodies, is for many of you front-of-the-pack awakened ones, reaching resonance with sustained experiences of these qualities.

With this availability emerging, we felt — the Council of Light, the Pleiadian Emissaries of Light and the Archangelic League — it was time to come together and speak to the New Human’s qualities in way that is clear and will distinguish this for you, from previous versions of human expression.
5 Distinct Qualities of the New Human

The New Human has 5 essential qualities of experience, which are now available almost entirely sustained, for those capable of also generating sustained resonance. These experiences are:

Sovereign Energy Fulfillment
Neutral Perception
Loving Awareness of Eternalness
Passion, Creativity and what you call “Purpose”
Exquisite connections with life in all spheres of experience.

It is through achieving a regular experience of these qualities that one can confidently feel they have entered and step fully into the New Harmonics. So with this template in your awareness, you can practice and focus on that within your experience which opens up these experiences more, and that which helps you sustain them more. Each of you who are awake and participating consciously in ascension have tasted moments of these experiences in full bloom. I would like to describe them a bit now so you can have ample ways to recognize them.
Sovereign Energy Fulfillment

This quality relates to how are present, and how you feel energetically and how this is created. It speaks to your clarity. It speaks to your energy level. It is noticed when you feel energetic and in the flow throughout the moments of your day. When you find that you have a sense of being fully resourced from within for the energy you desire.

You can recognize the difference in this approach from the old patterns in that when you don’t feel good you pause. You go within. You see what is in need of your attention. You recognize that not feeling good and/or feeling tired, means you’ve somehow gotten out of alignment with you. When you are in alignment with you you have plenty of energy, clarity and your emotional state is quite uplifted. In the old energies when you didn’t feel good there would be responses, that might have included (in no particular order): projection of blame onto others, reaching out to others to “get some of there energy and feel better,” picking up the phone and calling someone to tell them you don’t feel good (another way of using someone else to connect to source rather then going direct).

Going direct is the essence of Sovereign Energy/Fulfillment. It means you are self-sustaining from within. You are now in such sustained alignment with all you are, and have built the energetic capacity to be in this state, so you feel good to great nearly al the time, have plenty of energy and clarity, and feel at peace with your life and capable of generating what you desire.
Neutral Perception

In this experience you have enlarged enough energetically to see all expression of life as perfect. You are not triggered by contrast or differences. In fact they strike you as quite beautiful. You can “live and let live” not by tolerating others, but by actually trusting sincerely in the diversity and valuing it all. Neutral does not mean not-caring, it means seeing the value in all forms of life, in all states of life, in all expressions of life, and not judging one as better than another. In this state of being, physical well-being is generated. Resistance is gone and the body begins to build and mend at deep levels. Physical radiance, balance and well-being are a by-product and the youth-ing of your physical form spoken of in anticipation by those aware of ascension, is in large part, created by Sovereign Energy/Fulfillment combined with Neutral Perception.
Loving Awareness of Eternalness

This quality of being speaks to the way you understand your life and your reality and your relationships to the idea of time. It is a sustained consciousness recognizing this life stream as an emanation of your own wholeness, an illusion of distinctness emanating from All that is, and with this knowing, one is fully aware of the illusions of death and limits and all forms of distinctness. One is simply, primarily aware of their own essence-feel and their eternalness. This creates an experience of profound lightness and playful creativity. There is a deep sense of the impossibility of doing anything wrong. Ever. And this frees one up to live in a very light, carefree, open way.
Passion, Creativity and what you call “Purpose”

As you tend to yourself, loving yourself, paying attention to you, cultivating your feeling state into higher frequencies, more often, more sustained, you move into clarity of purpose. Clarity of purpose is simply being in the vibrational territory of passion. What you think of as purpose is simply experiencing passion for living and being and creating and having a strong sense of desire and direction informed by this passion in combination with your own essence and the contrast of life.

What occurs in this state of being is that one feels great flow move through them and this flow, in combination with the perceptions and experiences of one’s life, opens up creativity and clarity of activity. Meaningful ways of being are abundantly available and understood. One wakes up each day excited about their life and the opportunities to participate and flow, create and play. As one allows themselves to reach beyond contentment for enthusiasm, happiness, eagerness and with anticipation, one approaches passion as a state of frequency which then creates clarity of purpose and inspires creativity. The deepest harvest of this quality of being is a profound sense of self-made meaning.
Exquisite Connections with Life in All Spheres of Experience.

As you experience a more and more sustained awareness of your own eternal, divine, multidimensionality, you begin to experience exquisite connections with life in all spheres of existence. You experience moments of spacious Oneness with everything. You feel the presence of your own higher levels of being. You can access and sense the Angelic, Archangelic, Ascended Master and your Cosmic Lineage and Families of Light.

You can sense the aliveness in all levels of the Earth, and you begin to relate to Earth with awareness that all life here is divine, and inherently to be valued. You feel an awareness that you are the Earth, the Galaxy, the Universe, the Cosmos, the harmonics of your own ascending energy inform you of the deep connection you have with everything and everyone. In this quality of experience one fully enjoys solitude and connection. Connection can happen through opening inwardly, and in the world.

All experiences of connection are expanded and open up more fully revealing the multidimensional and conscious nature of everything. One has resolved the illusions of duality and separation and lives in unity and distinctness, perceiving it all in perfect balance and harmony.

These are the qualities of being that define the initial expression of the New Human. You can refer to all of these experiences, or qualities as Love, because everything is love and love is therefore expressed in many ways. You can refer to all of these qualities as qualities of Source Creation, or God, because you are All that is, and these are the qualities you experience as you open to this as your true identity.

Each of you knows intrinsically what these states of being feel like. You have complete capacity and wisdom for achieving these states. Your human energy system knows how to get you there, you simply make the choice, and persevere in this choice, following the guidance and inner nudges you receive. You trusting your own sense of what works for you, to lead you into greater and greater understanding of how to create your own Heaven on Earth.

We, the Angelic and Archangelic Realms are transmitting love and joy and clarity and very personalized energies to support each of you, throughout your entire existence on Earth. To receive this avalanche of abundance we are shining forth, you need only turn and ask for our assistance and support and then open to receive. Choose to allow yourself to be met easily and abundantly by life, and stick with this choice, and you will learn how to do so, how to feel your way into any release or adjustment to empower this alignment and be met fully as you seek.
Cultivation and Learning

Cultivation and learning are very important aspects of your life at this point. New potentials and more, new capacities! are now available to you. Each of you will access them as you cultivate your ability to tune to them, to interface with them, to trust your subtle senses and new modes of perception. This will mean choosing to practice using these new ways of tuning, perceiving, orienting and creating, until they work reliably for you, to your liking.

This is the part of the experience you create through your active participation — learning to work with the energies present in the material with this continually expanding fullness of YOU present here. It was your intention to infuse the material with great qualities of power, love, joy and beauty and now the opportunity is yours. It must, however, be claimed and cultivated.
Self-Trust is a Key to Using Your New Capacities

Realize you have a part in this beyond simply receiving. You have to learn to use your new capacities and one of the most significant experience in doing so, is learning to trust yourself, what you experience, what you feel and sense, what you are inspired toward, drawn to … letting your perceptions be real to you and letting your experiences matter most, be the authority in your lives. This is how you claim the capacity for being Creators that you wished to express and experience here.

2014 is a year of really orienting more to your multidimensional capacities and learning how to access them, tune your consciousness to various frequencies to interface with the qualities and templates you seek and even playing around enough to where what I’m sharing with you today begins to make sense.

Once you understand the landscape of this new playing field, you can really have fun playing the game, the NEW GAME, your way. And we are with you always, dear ones, with great love and support. And tremendous admiration and encouragement, for your continued adventures and your joy, being the most ever.

I AM Archangel Michael

Messages from Metatron 2013

The year 2013 is the year of " Formatting Codes"  and it is within the quadratic influx, of an equinox, solstice, lunar eclipse and solar eclipse that two incredibly pertinent coded- portals occur. These are the ‘Green Ray Activation ‘ in August and the ‘Renaissance Formatting’ in September . The latter of which completes in the solar eclipse of November.

The Green Ray Infinity-Gate Activation

In August the Green Ray Infinity Portal occurs in the aperture activation of the Emerald Flame. The primary opening apex is from August 12-21, 2013.

Message Channeled from Archangle Michael by James Tyberon

Dear Ones, just as your dimensional access increased with the planetary Ascension, so does your chakra field. So it is that the initial Sacred Codes of each new chakra be received and installed beginning in Year One of the New Earth.

And we tell you the 4th, 8th & 9th dimensions are formulated through and with the Emerald-Ray. The 8th & 9th dimensions will begin completing receival of the Geo-Codes of Thoth, through the aperture of the Emerald Flame Activation. It initiates in the 8th month and completes in the 9th on the Equinox. The apexial phase begins with the Perseid s Meteor influx, and culminates on the full moon . (Understand that astrological, astronomical events are energy shift catalysts, and in the New Earth, these are the base mechanisms of the new paradigm formation.)

The Emerald Flame is a vibratory Essence that is Healing & Nurturing, and by receiving the Codes of the Green Ray Activation, the 8th and 9th Chakric Fields will expand into more lucid reception and perception from and into the 8th and 9th Dimension in the Physio Realm, and into the 16th-18th Chakric sensory of the etheric level 13-20-33 Mer-Ka-Na Field.

Accordingly humanity can receive these codes as they complete the portal downloads of the Green Ray Infinity (8) Portal. These codes are synergized into the 8th & 9th Physio-Chakras, through the guidance of Archangel Raphael.

As you become more settled into the higher frequencies of the New Earth, it is incumbent upon you to calibrate to the expanded Chakra Alignments of the Crystalline Lite Body, the Mer-Ka-Na. Naturally the Earth is adjusting her resonance to refashion the chakric centers of the planet to receive and distribute the energies for humanity.

Power Dates & Activation Phases of 2013

The energies of 2013 will be somewhat less intense than the 2012 continual bombardment of solar wind amplifiers and astro portal flurries that were made to finish the Crystalline Grid, and in kind force you into upshift. 2012 was a year in which every month sequentially raised the frequencial bar. It was an obstacle course of increasing frequencies. In 2012 you were getting ready for the expansion.

So in 2013 you are reformatting to the New Earth. The frequencies that poured in continually last year, now must be fined tuned. You have several points of relaxation in 2013 that allow you to catch your breath. None the less the year contains 2 essential quadric power phases that will take effort.

Two quadric phases of intense energy adjustment will take place. These are the phases when you will find out what you’re really made of, and realize how far you have come.

"You must stay positive and focused on what matters during this year. What you choose to focus on when resonant inserts get more challenging will determine everything. It is essential that you remain on path, and indeed by doing so you will expand far more than you may realize."

2013 is a year of rebirth of renaissance. It is a year in which you will learn how to navigate in dimensions 5-12. It is a year in which you will receive codes for the new dimensions. By achieving dimensional coherency you will expand into greater resonance with the conscious Earth Kingdoms. This was not entirely possible before the Ascension. This integration logically could not be fully achieved until the Crystalline Grid completed in December of 2012.

Accordingly 2013 is the year for such formatting.

The remaining key phases are coded & multifaceted. Each of the below dates in 2013 offer the following:

August 16-21 – The Green Ray Activation
September 20- 22 – Equinox ‘Time-Gate’ Portal of Renaissance
October 18 – Lunar Eclipse
November 3 – Solar Eclipse
December 21, 2013 – Solstice

The ‘Time-Gate Renaissance Portal’

The ‘Renaissance’ Portal occurs from the September Equinox & completes on the Solar Eclipse. This aperture will align the New Earth to 3 phases of ‘enlightenment. Do not doubt that just as there are star gates and worm holes that connect the planet (and humanity) to higher dimensions, there are also ‘Time Gate Portals’ that connect to other epochs.

Just as similar frequencies attract through the ‘Law of Harmonic Oscillation’ so do the vibratory fields of planetary ‘eras’ naturally align. There are 3 ‘Golden Ages’ in which many of you were present that achieved very high levels of consciousness. These are:

1) The Golden Age of Atlantis ( Poseidon Law of One)
2) The Golden Age of LeMuria
3) The Golden Age of Greece

Through the Aquarian Shift, 144-Crystalline Grid and the expansion into 12 dimensions, you are able to draw the attributes & codes of these higher time periods into a more direct harmonic relationship with the ongoing up-shift of humanity in the current time. The codes of these eras will allow for a much closer interface with the 3 Golden eras mentioned.

This will assist humanity by allowing the simultaneous time aspect of those phases to integrate more completely with the evolving phase you are entering. The two phases the era of the Golden Age of Greece and of Poseidon.

The Golden Codes of Greece & Poseidon will be brought in through the planetary ‘Naval’ (umbilical ) Portal of Delphi and the Codes of Golden leMuria will enter the earthplane at Rapa Nui. This will occur through the 10th, 11th and 12th dimensions and be received via the 10th, 11th and 12th physio chakras in the Mer-Ka Na field, and through the 20th and 33rd chakras of the etheric levels of the Mer-Ka-Na field.

It should not surprise you that all 3 of these (prior) Golden Ages were phases in which many of you were and are , in simultaneous time), present. We tell you that these aspects of your multidimensional selves are playing a major role in coordinating the harmonic interfacing that will occur in the ‘Renaissance Portal’. That is why some of you will be called to anchor these energies in download at the two primary Star-Gates of Delphi & Rapa Nui. This is the reason we directed the channel to take groups to these locales over the two equinoxes of 2013.

Rediscover Passion in 2013 !!

Dear Ones, it is time to rediscover passion and joy, as did the Masters of the Golden Age. It is time to regain the balance. Life is not meant to be only work, rather the equity of well being and contained within the raptures of bliss. Joy has a geometric code and pattern, and you can discover joy & indeed groom it !

Happiness is acquired, and we tell you that the energy of passion is the driving engine of manifestation. Passion is the fabric of your life- fervor & is an essential part of heart-courage and will. You are not meant to be indifferent, sad or apathetic !

Learning to create & project joy is a huge accomplishment ! And indeed joy has a geo-coded essence that can be received in the Renaissance. of 2013. And remember, you are never ‘too old’. You are here with purpose and that is too live life fully and create the NEW EARTH !

When you enter into periods of fatigue or apathy you MUST work out of them. Find joy, do not spiral into indifference, for every moment of life is precious and purposed !

Come to the LIVE YOUR PASSION Seminars this month to discover that your soul has a purpose for being here and how you can find out what that is.

Channeling from Archangel Metatron

Greetings, dear ones. I am the Archangel who embodies the highest level of
physical existence. This includes what is unknown and unseen at your
present conscious level of perception. My energies pervade all of physical
existence and serve as what you might call your highest connection into
Source. I am a bridge that connects Source and the Creator directly into
physical existence. All of you are creators with the Source. You are
learning to recognize all of your creative abilities. I can help you to
connect into that highest part of yourself which is that clearest aspect of
the Source connection or your Source Beingness.
Metatron

We, of the Angelic Kingdom, do not create consciously as humans do. We simply are extensions of Source and we are the Source substance with which you create. Therefore, as creators, you are the ones who direct the use of our energies and you are the ones who decide what we will create within physical existence. We embody Source's Plan Itself. When you choose to work with this Plan and to utilize it, it is our energies which form your connection into it. Without your decision to utilize what we are and to become a part of this Plan, we regain simply a blueprint or an energy flow which does not connect into anything specific. Without your conscious desire to use our spiritual energies, we remain simply undifferentiated.  Source Substance which has not had the opportunity to become a part of physical existence; our energies are not able to connect into the potentials hat are there within physical existence, and they can not help it to bloom, grow and express all that the Creator has chosen to express through it. Without you we cannot participate in the development of your
creative opportunities which Source has given you on Earth.

You might look at us as a flow which allows Source to be present within physical existence and to be expressed as physical substance on your Earth.  All that you see around you as physical matter is Source substance which has been converted into physical matter through your conscious desire to create with it and through your utilization of the structure we provide
which allows you to create.

There are 10 Archangels who serve as ten levels of the Plan for your Earth.  I am the one that is most like the energy of Source. There are others who embody the other planes of physical existence. Each one of us has, specific
aspects of ourselves that operate at our energy level, working within other Angelic Beings who make up the totality of all that we are. They are also here to serve the purpose and the desires of the Creator and of you as
co-creators.

Source has chosen to become physical through each of you Therefore, you serve as co-creators with Source to build your Earth and to give it an increasingly more spiritual expression The level you are working on at this time is called the New Age.

The Archangels embody the skeletal structure of the Plan which Source has for the Earth and for the New Age. Each angelic energy is a stepping stone to the next higher level of understanding the Source Plan. Each step is necessary for the continuity of its flow into physical existence and none is more important than any other. It is not necessary for you to understand
completely each of these creative levels of he Plan, but it is necessary for you to understand clearly what you are building and what you desire to create on your Earth. The higher you are able to stretch in your consciousness, the more clearly you can see the whole picture and the more easily you can see how your part fits into the whole and how all of the co-creators serve the Plan as a complete unit.

Many of you now are beginning to see your purposes in terms of the whole, and are beginning to realize the importance of working together as a group to bring forth the New Age. The time for individual efforts has passed.
The efforts which have meaning now and are effective will be those that take into account the abilities, desires and purposes of a group. We can help you blend the energies of your group at whatever level that group can reach We can help you to gain an even greater understanding of how these work together. Some groups may work with a few levels of the Divine Plan and a few levels of Archangelic energies. Others through their clarity of vision and their ability to connect into higher aspects of the Plan use more of these levels of angelic energies. Each group receives the help it needs and which it is capable of using. As the group grows and matures, it is able to handle greater amounts and finer aspects of angelic energy Then, it is able to enter deeper and higher levels of the Plan itself.

Those of you who choose to make an effort to communicate with me will receive whatever help you need to connect into the appropriate level at which you are working as a creator. I will help you connect into he Plan and realize your purpose. I will aid you in making the most of your opportunities on the Earth. I am working to help you connect into the Planat the Galactic level.

My energies are bringing to the Earth the Divine Blueprint which you need to create a more efficient creative structure from your own physical bodies. This light which I am, and which I focus from the Galactic Center, carries the next level of the Divine Blueprint which you need to pattern your physical structure nor existence in the New Age. As you desire to serve the Plan and allow yourselves to become a part of it you become connected into these higher energies. This energy of the Plan is being used within your physical structure to make your body stronger, more efficient, and closer to the ideal. You will be able to create for yourselves bodies which never get sick, which do not age, and which will serve you by becoming exactly what you want them to be.

If your purposes and desires are in line with the Plan, this creative opportunity for building a perfect physical structure comes much none easily. The design of this new structure allows an easier connection into your own Source level awareness and a clearer connection to your Creator.  Those who do not desire to align with the Plan are clearly not able to
utilize this Divine Blueprint. It will not suit their purposes as they selfishly seek something which is not a pan of the Plan.0metatrons_cube2

There are many Angelic Beings who help me provide this connection Into Source's Plan for you. There are many Spiritual Teachers who are available now to help you allow this connection and help you understand more fully how to use it.  I am one who is here to serve you as you create your New Age on Earth.  I am one who humbly offers his services to all of you as co-creators of your New Earth. I have worked with many of you before at
different levels of your understanding and at different levels of
beingness.

I am available now to continue that relationship and to serve
you as creators in anyway that I can.

Thank you.
