Archangel Michael through Ronna Herman, February 6, 1996
Beloved Masters of Light it is imperative at this time, more than ever before, that you diligently begin to seek your own truth, step-by-step, day-by-day, and that you strive to live in the integrity of that truth.
Not your old, outdated programming, or what you have read or heard from someone else, but what resonates within you as the truth from your own Divine Essence. You see, there are many truths, levels or layers of new truth coming forth now that the quarantine has been removed from your Earth. But each of you must consider your level of awareness and the vibrational frequencies to which you are attuned. Begin to apply the basic wisdom of love and compassion for yourself and others before you attempt to master or understand the more complex rules and guidelines for those who are further along the path of awareness and integration.
You are unique, your lessons and challenges have been and will be fashioned specifically for you in order to assist you in balancing and harmonizing all discordant energies within your physical/mental/emotional bodies. You are not being cast about at the whim of fate, you are not being singled out to be punished or persecuted. Each person or entity must follow their own particular destiny, their path to illumination and reintegration with their Divine Self. The lessons you are learning and perfecting will be your contribution to the whole. Within these seemingly painful experiences are the jewels of wisdom you will need to fulfill your particular facet of the Grand Design. So do not judge yourself or your progress by that of any other. Do not look in awe at others, or envy the talents and gifts they have mastered and manifested, for within you are treasures just as great awaiting discovery, ready to be brought forth and shared.
This is why we ask you to begin the process of changing your perception of what love is and is not. The energies of love from the vantage point of a light worker or master are totally different than those still caught in the illusion of the third dimensional reality. Love is not just a sensation of the emotions, the intense desire to own or possess another in order to feel a sense of wholeness or in some cases, the thrill of conquest and obtaining what seems to be “a great prize” at the time. That which, most often, becomes a great burden instead. Love is not self-sacrifice and victimhood, where you give away so much of yourself that you no longer have an identity of your own. It has been said, you are to love others as you love yourself. We tell you, beautiful ones, many of you have such low self-esteem and disdain of self, if you were to use this premise, you would have little love to project to others. You must first build the essence of love within you, in your soul center, and you begin by accepting that you are a divine spark of God and worthy of love, respect and all the joy, beauty and bounty of Creation.
We have said before, it is time you begin a love affair with yourself, where you begin to focus on what is right about you instead of what is wrong. Begin to listen to the whispering intuitive voice of your soul-self (which will grow louder as you acknowledge its wisdom) as it gives you encouragement, insight, and awareness of your vast potential. Love is not enabling those around you to dishonor you and abuse you as they reinforce your own projections of unworthiness. How can you expect anyone else to treat you with respect and love if you are not willing to set boundaries and send clear messages of love, acceptance, worthiness for yourself and for others, as well.
The limiting, crippling thought forms of self-sacrifice, martyrdom, suffering, denial of the beauty and perfection of your physical vehicle must end. Allow all these destructive thought patterns to be dissolved from your consciousness along with all other third dimensional illusionary concepts. Many of you, at the urging of your ego desire-body, have become enamored with the sensations of power and acquisition. Indeed, you came as co-creators to build, perfect and enjoy the material realm on the beautiful planet Earth. But somewhere along the way, you became so caught up in your accomplishments, possessing, owning and hoarding that this became your measure of love. If you were powerful and influential enough, you would be worthy of love. If you had the greatest storehouse of riches and possessions, you would be admired and respected, also equated with love. Focusing all of your energies on these external manifestations creates only momentary satisfaction, as well as constant frustration and dissatisfaction.
What happens if your riches and power are taken from you? What happens if you lose your possessions? What do you identify with then? It is as if you have lost all that represents who and what you are. This is why so many lose all desire for life, some even going to the extreme of taking their own precious life because, from their perception, all that they “loved and treasured” has been taken away, along with their sense of being worthy of love and respect. Love as an external focus, exterior to yourself will always bring a sense of vulnerability, always needing constant validation by someone or something. Love as an internal focus projected outward creates a constant flow of self-assurance, of self-acceptance, always striving to incorporate and project more of this blissful feeling of unity and harmony with all creation. Love is the Essence of the God Mind. Love is the Christed- energy pouring forth from the heart center of God/Goddess Prime Creator in great streams of cosmic substance in its never ending desire to experience more of itself. It is a blessed gift to be used by all Creation, at all levels, from the highest, most powerful, to the lowest, most diminished.
It is your birthright to bring forth your own unique self-expression, through loving co-creation in harmony with the your divine blueprint, which is always in perfect accordance with the Grand Design of the Creator. How loving are your creations, dear ones? What kind of temple have you created for your soul? Do you identify only with your body and then, through constant judgment and focus on your imperfections and comparison with others, fight an ongoing battle ultimately assuring failure and validation of your distorted point of view? A love/hate relationship with yourself that keeps you frustrated and mired in self-inflicted misery. What kind of world have you built with your constant, ever flowing, radiating thought forms? What kind of example have you been for your children and loved ones? Do you project a sense of pride-in-self, an awareness of how precious the gift of life is? Do you set an example by striving to perfect the myriad facets of yourself? There is a path open for each of you to follow, no matter what station or circumstances you may find yourselves. An opportunity waiting to enable you to assume your power, tap into your creativity, bring to the fore those many latent abilities you have stored deep within your memory banks. And now, as never before, we are close by, observing, waiting to inspire, encourage, create the miracles, smooth the way, assist you in moving forward.
It is also time for you, as brave Warriors of Light, to break through and cross the boundaries of discrimination, dis-empowerment and limitation. We dare you, as women of spirit, to become beacons and examples as “masterful women among men.” We implore you, as men of valor and integrity, to become “compassionate men among women.” By this we mean, erase and eliminate the lines and barriers between you, offering and accepting the gifts and attributes of each other and integrate these sorely needed energies into your mental and emotional bodies.
Your truth lies in your level of awareness, your assimilation of the cosmic gift of Christed-consciousness. You must integrate the knowledge you acquire, and then you must demonstrate that you have the ability to live by that new level of wisdom. You are judged by your own Higher Self and your Divine Presence as to your readiness to proceed along the spiral of initiation. We have told you that the path of ascension is a very solitary, secular process. Your initiations are designed specifically for you and you alone, for you are like no other. And yet, precious ones, each gain you make that lifts you another fraction, or step along the narrow path of mastership, also lifts humanity as a whole. You are the “One” in Essence, but “At One” with All. It is time for each of you to step to the fore, to take a stand, and to be heard. Begin where you are, at your highest level of understanding, seeing through eyes filtered by love, feeling with a heart filled with compassion, functioning with a mind that is not clouded by guilt, fear or judgment. That is the way you will find your truth, beloved ones. That is the way that your world and reality will be filled to overflowing with love, joy and abundance. That is the way of the Master, the way of Truth, the way back Home.
We honor you for your bravery, we know the way has been long and arduous, but we tell you this, sweet friends, your time of pain and suffering is coming to a close. The time of miracles is at hand. Each day, we eliminate more of the restrictive energies between us, dissolve more of the negativity that swirls in the ethers. Soon, we give you our assurance, you will have your validation as to what the coming Age of greatness will be like. And you will know, without any doubt, the integral part you have played. We have walked and communed one with another, and that is also a gift that awaits you in the future.
With love and profound gratitude, I AM Archangel Michael.
