Archangel Michael reading with Steve Beckow
Continued from Part 1. In this part AA Michael discusses Ascension to the Fifth Dimension.
SB: [laugh] All right. Well, I see that the time is moving on apace, so perhaps I could turn to a second area. And that is, I don’t think there is anyone, Lord, that I am aware of who has told us what actually occurs when we ascend. What actually takes place that the word ascension refers to and applies to? What are the events that we would be aware of, or even not aware of, that constitute ascension?
AAM: Well, I could tease you and tell you the key point of ascension is you get a new bank account. [Laughter] And it has unlimited funds! But that is not the case. But in a way it is.
SB: As in my being a co-creator?
AAM: That is correct. So, it is the elimination of what you think of in many ways of effort. The process, or the elongation, the period of time that this process takes can be slightly different for different people. As I have said to you there will be many at the last minute rushing through the door, and that will not be as smooth a journey as someone who has done their preparation adequately. And soulfully.
SB: That’s interesting, Lord.
SB: And the work we do in completing our old business and upsets, that makes for a smooth transition? Is that right?
AAM: Yes, it does. Think of it in terms of when a baby, a human baby, is birthed, sometimes it is a very easy delivery, sometimes it is 30 hours of labor. Sometimes the mother decides to birth in the fields, sometimes she births in the ocean. Sometimes she goes to a beautiful room. Other times she goes to an operating room and has a C-section. But the birthing still occurs. So this is what happens.
SB: And what would I be aware of?
AAM: This is what I am going to tell you!
SB: [Laugh] Oh. Thank you.
AAM: It is a feeling of complete and utter surrender and bliss. It is a sensation — physical, mental, emotional, spiritual — of union. So there is a moment where you feel, oh, I have died. Because that is the sense of such release and reconnection. But of course you are not dying.
Quite the contrary. Now, in much of your history or literature — and I do include sacred books in that — ascension is also related to a keeping of some kind of physicality and form. Now, some will choose not to do that [i.e., some will choose to transition to the Astral Planes and ascend from there], and that is fine. But that is a choice.
But let us talk about you. Let us use you as an example. Because you have done your very deep work, and your heart is committed to this path for many, many years, there will be that sense of blissful connection that you have experienced a couple of times, but it will be even more so.
The sense will be that you are flying upward. It is a physical sensation of movement. And a remembering, or a sensation of remembering, that you have wings, or the ability to fly. So that is the feeling of ascending up the sacred spiral.
There will also be in that period, which can be moments or a few hours, [a sensation] of feeling disassociated, that even if you were to open your eyes, even if you were to look at a floor, you would see that it is simply made of particles, subatomic particles, quantum particles, that it is not solid. So you have begun immediately to have the real sensation or vision of how things can be seen, and how they are seen, maybe, from this side.
So there is a sense of unreality. Now, if you wish to make things solid, you will just simply say that you want that, and it will appear. But the knowing that that is simply a construct that you are creating already is there in full consciousness. When you decide to open your eyes, how you see the colors, the textures, the richness, the air, will be very different. What you think of as your senses will be heightened, oh, at least a thousand-fold.
So, there is a little adjustment. And we are with you, and we obviously take care of that, because this is completely a joyous situation to be in. Think of it as being spiritually orgasmic. It is the union of all.
Then, you will settle into this knowing, and of course that choice of physicality. But also know that if you choose to keep physicality, immediately what you have noted as, what we would call human aches and pains are gone. But the biggest shift is you no longer live or exist — you can visit, you can exhibit, but you do not live — within the third dimension, where you are in that movement of what you think of as going up the sacred spiral.
That is the best analogy I can give you. It is the elevator to the Fifth [Notice that AA Michael says here the Fifth Dimension]. And further, there will be some who simply choose to keep going [to dimensions higher than the Fifth]. But as a collective, that is the plan.
And it will be the place of love. It will be all of a sudden that the decisions, the actions, the existence, the form is love, and is from love, and is of love. So that sense of either/or, of what you traditionally have thought of as yes or no, of duality, of polarity, is gone. It is the alignment. The entire journey in this third-dimensional existence is reaching this place of alignment, of placing yourself beyond the either/or. And when you are doing that in this ascension process, it is like a Roman candle: off you go.
[Steve: So once we are aligned and out of either/or, off we go.]
Now, you say, well, what about those around me? What about the physical world? And the ability to create and co-create, not only with us, but with each other, is very strong in this new reality that is as ancient as eternity. So there will be shifting, there will be shifting of what you choose to construct.
Now, it is not to say that you arrive in the fifth and it is a completely blank slate. There will be what you need there. But what you desire, or need, or believe you need, you will create. And the feeling, the belief that density and structure is the foundation of existence will not be part of that belief system, that reality.
You do not need, for example, central banks when you are able to simply create and collect the codes and have what you need. There is no need for protection of military forces or paramilitary forces, which is often how we think of your police forces, when you know that it is in harmony. So these structures, or institutions, as you think of them, are nonexistent. They’re gone.
SB: It’s hard for us to get that. Coming from third-dimensional reality, we tend to project the third dimension onto the fifth –
SB: — rather than understanding the changed reality that the fifth represents.
AAM: It doesn’t have the same rules. Now, think of this, my friend. Many of the structures you have — and we’re not suggesting that they have been not worthwhile; there are many worthwhile, many, many, many worthwhile things that the humans have constructed. But many more have been constructed on these false human paradigms that were not real.
And they most certainly were not of this side. And they were not of love. They were of belief in the need to control, or to be greedy, or to be lustful — to limit. This is the one that is always the most baffling throughout the universe. Why would you wish to limit any human being? Any being?
It is like saying to a flower, only bloom once. So many of your structures have been formulated on these belief systems that have been based on a much lower vibration than where you would wish to be. If there is love, there is trust. And if there is trust, you can organize yourselves. You are not going to wish to take what? Another’s land? Land does not belong to you, anyway. It is Gaia’s. She shares it with you.
This different reality is what you will see when you open your eyes. You will see that you are part of that infinite mosaic. The connectedness will be there and the loneliness will be gone. The yearning? It will not be there. Not in the same desperation that we witness in so many. And that is not a criticism. It is that they yearn to be part of One again. They know that that is who they are.
We have waited eons for this time. That is why we patiently restrain ourselves during these months.
SB: Could you expand on that last comment, Lord? You have waited eons for this time, and that’s why you are patient during these last…
AAM: That is why we are patient. We have been patient for a long time. [Laughter] And why we, when you say — and this is what many, many hope for … for Gabriel’s horn to be heard, and for us to sweep down and clean house.
SB: [Laugh] Yes. [Laugh]
AAM: And it is not that we are beyond doing that. [Laughter] But we are patient because this is our opportunity. We are meeting in the middle. You are lifting up to a level where we participate very differently. So, no, you cannot take all your precepts of the third dimension and apply them to the fifth. What you can apply is that there is a choice and there is a form of physicality. Yes, and you will have stars and a moon and a sun. You’re not shifting universes and galaxies. You are shifting dimensions.
SB: So some things are the same, and some things are different, and some things which are the same are also at the same time different.
AAM: That is correct.
SB: Okay. I certainly don’t want to interrupt you.
AAM: This is a conversation that needed to be had because it is like when someone says they are going on a safari and they are all excited, but they want to know: Where am I going to sleep? How am I going to be fed? Will I be taken care of? The answer is yes. You will be taken care of. You will be given every form of assistance. But it isn’t like an adjustment program. It isn’t like a relocation program. It is instantaneous. You are there.
Now, I know that you have other issues, but I just want to say one thing. Because we have also spoken of the waves of ascension.
AAM: So there will be a period of time when there will be a window, shall we say, that those who have already gone through the door can peek back or reach back, or what we call “exhibit,” so that they are also helping those who are in preparation for the next wave.
SB: Is that what is meant by the Return of the Masters?
AAM: Yes. Only you always think of the masters as the ascended ones. But, of course they will be. [Laughter] So, yes. Think of them as Gatekeepers.
SB: All right. I know a lot of people are going to ask how many of us will ascend on, say, the 28th of October, or November 11th. I am sure there are a lot of people who are wondering if they will ascend. Is there anything you can say about that, about the numbers who will ascend, or what it would take to ascend?
AAM: What it takes is a heartfelt commitment, and an energetic boost. Like jumping a car. That is what it takes – if you have done your work. We are not suggesting that if you have lived a life completely outside the understanding of your spirit or your heart that you will be amongst that first wave. That is very unlikely to happen.
SB: There are also people who have said to me that they also have the obligation to stay. So there will be some people who are qualified to go who won’t go because at some level they’ve agreed to stay. Is that correct?
AAM: That is absolutely correct. And those are the pillars. You are holding the space, and you are still the teachers, you are still the showers of the way. When there is a mass exodus, there are always those who stay to make sure that everybody who wishes to go is equipped and ready and gets the opportunity.
I am part of that, you know. [laughter] I am always there until the last.
SB: [Laugh] Thank you, Lord. There are people saying that they have had an inner message. They’ve heard a voice say, for instance, November 11th, or they just have had a feeling that they are going on this date. Is that — are those true messages?
AAM: Some of it is wishful thinking.
SB: All right.
AAM: And there is nothing wrong with wishful thinking, because wishful thinking becomes a declaration of intent.
Many of them are hearing correctly.
SB: All right. So many are and some aren’t. But even so, wishful thinking is a step on the path, and –
AAM: That is exactly correct. So they’re saying, I want to go, I just haven’t bought my ticket yet.
SB: All right.
AAM: And that is all right. There is still time.
SB: Okay. I perceive this difficult situation where some people will want to get rid of everything, and then find themselves still here. Any advice on that kind of situation?
AAM: Yes. Do not get rid of one darn thing. You have many false prophets on your planet. We do not say this in a critical way, for many of them are very well intentioned. But what does it matter what you take or leave? No, do not get rid of anything.
Now, if you are a hoarder, it is time to begin clearing, but that is not the question. It is not a question of cleaning up your affairs. It is not a question of making sure you’re telling everybody, well, don’t look for me after that date because I won’t be around. You may well be back, as one of those Gatekeepers.
SB: And are you saying that they may come back as a Gatekeeper and go to their former homes and live there?
AAM: Yes, but it will not be the same for them.
AAM It will simply not be the same. So you are having inter-dimensional experiences all at the same time. Now, for most of you that has already been occurring. There is a great deal of inter-dimensional slippage. We have to travel through the dimensions constantly. We have to. We want to come and visit.
