Ascended Master Mother Mary, February 22, 2015 through Kim Michaels
My beloved hearts, I am indeed the Ascended Master Mother Mary. I come to share with you my gratitude and my enthusiasm for the fact that so many of you have taken up this vigil, to give four hours of decrees and invocations once a month for a specific purpose of consuming conflict and other atrocities going on around the world.
My beloved, although I have said 500 people, I do not wish you to play a numbers game here. It is not a matter of so many people. The real importance of this vigil is that as many people as possible give decrees at the same time at a regular interval whereby you create a momentum that becomes an upward spiral.
A spiral of light around the planet
I know very well that the human mind always has a tendency to look for specific results; you want to see a linear result of your efforts. I wish to share with you the very fact that what we of the ascended masters are looking for is not linear results and a linear progression. We see everything in terms of spirals.
A spiral, as you know, circles around and it comes back, not quite to the same point, but at least to the same side of the planet at regular intervals. That is precisely what you are building: A beautiful spiral of light that circles around the planet and that actually follows the planet as the planet moves through absolute space.
As you might know, if you think deeply about this, planet earth is constantly moving, not just around the sun, but throughout absolute space. As the planet moves through space, and at the same time moves in an oval orbit around the sun, it actually traces a spiral pattern.
What you are building is a spiral of light that in some ways goes faster than the earth. Therefore, you may not see a result right now of your efforts, but rest assured that as the earth again meets the spiral that you have built, there will be another chance at manifesting a result in the physical octave.
As I have said before, and as I want to instil on your minds, no effort of invoking light is ever wasted. You could do a vigil of focusing on a specific problem and asking for the intercession of the forces of light, and you may concentrate a great effort on that specific problem, but it does not necessarily mean that you would see an instant linear result. Even if you had millions of people invoking light for a specific problem, there may not be an instantaneous result because you always have the equation of free will.
Crucial points in world history
This is one of the mysteries that have often confused people when they look at the earth. You see, for example, how at certain crucial points in world history one person has been able to either hold back a new development, to hold back peace or to create a conflict that, once it had crossed the borderline into the physical, could not be stopped for a long time.
This is the extreme outplaying of the law of free will. What you need to recognize here is that even though one person may sometimes seem to be the one who has the power to change the course of the entire world, it is not actually so. It is only that that one person becomes the focal point for a movement in the collective consciousness.
Adolph Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Chairman Mao could not have done what they did in their nations had it not been because there was already a spiral in the collective consciousness of those nations. Vladimir Putin cannot do what he is doing today by his own power alone. He is also riding a spiral in the consciousness of the Russian people, not only in Russia but in other nations, especially right now in Ukraine.
The collective consciousness of Russia
My beloved, consider a mystery, or at least what seems like a mystery for the people from the West who do not understand the Russian mindset. You have people who have lived outside of Russia in other nations for generations. Many of them are born in those nations. Why then do they still identify themselves as Russians and not as Ukrainians or Poles or Lithuanians? This is a mystery to ponder, but the cause from a spiritual level is that these people have not freed themselves from the collective consciousness created in Russia.
This is because the collective spiral, the collective consciousness, created in Russia was spread beyond the borders of Russia during Soviet times. As we have said before, these spirals have not completely been arrested and consumed.
Those of you who are concerned about the situation in Russia, in Ukraine and potentially in other former Soviet nations, would do well to focus your decree efforts and your invocations on consuming these spirals. Especially those who are the spiritual people of a Russian descent might consider here that these spirals of identification as Russians are not the highest potential of the Russian people. They are an artificial construct, again created during Soviet times where the Russian people were used to put the whole world in an artificial conflict.
The Russian people – some among them – are so attached to being a powerful nation and having the respect of the world that they actually want these spirals to continue. They do, as Putin himself, to some degree does want to go back to the Soviet era where Russia was feared by other nations. They think fear leads to respect and that there is no way to get respect without being feared.
This, of course, is what people who have grown up in the West, in free democratic nations, cannot understand. You cannot understand why anyone would think that by making you fear them, they earn your respect. You know, of course, that that is the surest way to lose your respect. Certainly, other people can make you fear them but this will not lead to you respecting them, will it?
You need to make these calls also if you live in the West, if you are not of Russian descent, and you are concerned about the situation. Make the calls for the arresting of these collective spirals of the Russian people and their fear-based tendency to think that they can earn respect only through fear and power and the exercising of power.
The spirals of the Ukrainian people
My beloved, we are certainly desirous of seeing a resolution to the conflict in Ukraine, but I must also tell you that once again we look at free will. We see that the situation is not nearly as simple as it might seem for outsiders.
The Ukrainian people have their own collective spirals and one of them is that they do not truly want to take responsibility for themselves as a nation. That is why you see such high levels of corruption that it has made the majority of the population the virtual slaves of a small power elite of oligarchs and those in positions of power in the state apparatus.
This is not so different from what was there during Soviet times, only now those people at the top can freely accumulate greater amounts of wealth than they could during the so-called Communist era, which was not truly Communist at all. What needs to happen is that the people come to this awareness, and they demand what other people have demanded in other countries before: An end to this blatant corruption that brings any nation to its knees economically.
The problem with corruption
You can look to many other nations who have high levels of corruption. You might know that there are certain world-wide organizations who every year compile indexes of which countries have the highest level of corruption. You can go and look at these nations and you can see a clear connection between their level of abundance and the level of corruption. You can also see a connection between the level of corruption and a more dictatorial form of leadership.
What is corruption a sign of? It is a sign of the fact that people are not equal to the law. There are some people who belong to an elite who are above the law. They are misusing their power, the power that really is entrusted to them by the people or at least by the state and the governmental apparatus, which should be representing the people but is not.
The people have allowed this to happen, they have allowed this to go on. They all know someone who is benefiting from this corruption so it has become so ingrained in the population that they are not willing to take the conflict to demand an end to this.
That is, of course, why they have become susceptible to more dictatorial forms of government. They did not object to it, as the Russian people should ideally have objected many, many times as Putin tightened his grip on power. They should have protested when he stopped freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom to assemble.
Of course, there is freedom for those whom he wants to assemble, as seen in this recent mock demonstration in Moscow against the so-called coup in Ukraine. How can it be a coup if you overthrow a government that was a strawman for a foreign power?
How much suffering do people need?
My beloved, without going too deeply into these topics, I wish to encourage you, for you have made a difference by invoking this light. We may not see an immediate result of this because of free will, which must be must be allowed to outplay itself, sometimes even into what seems like unnecessary extremes.
They are not unnecessary in the sense that sometimes people can be awakened only through extreme amounts of pain and anguish. This is clearly not what we of the ascended masters want to see. We would like to see people awaken through the least amount of pain possible. Unfortunately, people do awaken through the least amount of pain possible, but it is an enormous amount of pain that is needed before they awaken.
This, of course, is something that we of the ascended masters cannot stop, we cannot change. Neither can you change it. Neither, for that matter, should you try to change it with your calls and invocations, nor should you even desire to change it. Doing this will only make you frustrated and make you discouraged because you feel like your efforts are not having an effect. I tell you: They DO have an effect!
It is true that there are people who are in positions where they can hold back a change for some time, but they cannot hold it back forever, my beloved. As more and more people invoke more and more light, changes will happen, it is absolutely inevitable. It just may not happen quite as swiftly as you wish to see it happen.
Taking the long view
This is where you need to be a practical realist, as we of the ascended masters have learned over the sometimes very long time we have served this planet, or even other planets in a similar state as earth.
When you have been ascended for many centuries, like myself and other masters, you have long ago realized that you are working for the long-term perspective, you have long-term goals. You have long ago realized that the earth is indeed in an upward spiral, but that the upward spiral does not follow a straight, ascending line. It follows a curve with peaks and troughs, with ups and downs, not exactly like a sine wave because the ups and downs are not regular, they are very irregular. It still follows the curve that you might see as the result of some statistics, whether it be weather patterns or other dynamics.
We, of course, have learned to see that general upward movement and to work for that general upward movement, and not be overly concerned about the dips and not be overly enthusiastic about the peaks. We know that both are temporary and both will change, but it is the upward movement of the median that matters in the long run.
The situation in Africa
My beloved, I know that there are many people who over the years have asked: “Why have the ascended masters given so few dictations about Africa?” There are several reasons for this.
One is, of course, that you from a very early age have been taught to look at a world map and identify certain continents. When you learn that there is continent called Africa, you think that this huge area is one homogenous area. In your childlike mind, you think that the people in Africa must be as homogenous as the people in your own country, or in your own part of the world.
Africa, although it may be said to be one continent, really cannot be said to be a unit. This is in part due to the huge geographical differences. Consider the difference between the states North of the Sahara desert, those in the Sahara desert, those South of there, those around the Equator and those further South. The differences in geography are far greater than the geographical differences in for example Europe. They are even greater that the differences in the United States, even though the United States has quite dramatic geographical differences between the different regions.
It is virtually meaningless to make general statements about Africa. What we can do is make more specific statements about specific countries or specific regions. This, however, would require us to have a messenger who had a greater knowledge of these regions, especially first-hand knowledge from having grown up in one of the regions of Africa. This we do not currently have. Surely, this messenger could spend his time to learn more about the conditions found in Africa, but would this be the wisest use of his time, given who he is and the fact that he was deliberately born in another region than Africa? It would not, seen from the long-term perspective.
The need for many messengers
We, of course, hope that we will gradually have messengers from all areas of the world, from all walks of life, who can take valid messages. Until that manifests, it will be difficult for us to give messages, not only about Africa, but about many other regions around the world where we know there are ascended master students who would like to hear more specific messages for their own nations.
This is simply the nature of how it currently works on earth. Many of you who have studied the work of this messenger for years, or have studied the work of the ascended master organizations that come before this, have almost come to take this for granted. You sometimes think it is so easy for us to have a messenger in embodiment that you think it should be possible for us to find messengers who could talk about any topic, or that one messenger should easily be able to take a dictation about any topic whatsoever.
This is not quite as easy as you think! Having a sponsored messenger, who holds a complex mantle, is not something that we of the ascended masters can take for granted. It is not an easy task to be a messenger and to still maintain a physical life with all of the demands of having to make a living, having to get your economy to function, having to have a place to live, having relationships with other people and so on.
The demands on a sponsored messenger
This is not something that we take for granted because we know how complicated it is. It is not easy for us to train a messenger who can actually maintain a state of mind that allows that person to continue functioning for any length of time. It is not easy for a person to be a messenger and hold the many complicated balance points that you need to hold in order to have the mindset that allows you to even accept that you can be a messenger for the ascended masters, and that you can tune in to the masters and take a dictation.
This is not nearly as easy as some of you have come to think. We understand that it seems easy given the amount of ascended masters teachings that are out there, and that have been brought forth over the last century. You can see several messengers who were able to function over a long period of time and bring forth very large amounts of material. This, of course, makes it seem easy, but it is not easy.
There are only very few people who are able to hold that balance and that focus where you make this the highest priority of your life and everything else comes secondary, or tertiary or further down on your priority list. You do no allow anything to stand between you and your relationship to the ascended masters, no matter what kind of attacks or criticism that you are likely to be exposed to from the world.
There are many people who actually have a potential to take messages, but we cannot sponsor them as a messenger because we know that it would be too destructive for them psychologically. They would not be able to hold the balance, the very complex balance, that you need to hold in order to function as a messenger with any kind of mantle.
Some of you have come to think that once you have been given a mantle by the ascended masters, everything should be happily every after because now you are protected by that mantle. Certainly, there is some protection in the mantle. But you realize, do you not, that you have to continually earn that mantle. You have to live up to it, and there is a return demand on you that you have to be able to hold the balance that is required for you to carry the mantle.
You may look at the old kings who carried a big heavy metal crown on their heads, and it gave them a certain regal appearance. If they did not hold their balance, then the crown would fall off and roll on the floor, would it not? So it is, in a symbolic way, with a messenger who has received a mantle. If you do not hold the balance, it will come off and fall to the ground and then we must withdraw it.
Qualifying for your ascension
Why am I telling you this? Because I want you to appreciate what you have while you have it. As Jesus said: “Work while ye have the light, for the night cometh when no man can work.” Everything has its time in the physical octave. We look forward to this messenger serving potentially for many years to come, but still appreciate what you have while you have it. Make the best use of it because I can assure you, my beloved, that those of you who are open to ascended master teachings have come into this embodiment, not to live the good life on earth, but to live a spiritual life that for many of you will qualify you for your ascensions.
When you are in your last embodiment, you cannot allow anything else to stand in the way of you qualifying for your ascension. It must be your first priority because the prince of this world is an expert in diverting your attention into all kinds of blind alleys that do not further your ascension or your service to the light.
How the golden age will be manifest
This in some way ties into the topic of why we have not said more about for example Africa or other regions. We must again look at the overall picture; we must look at where we have the greatest amount of ascended master students. Which nations have the potential to come closer to manifesting some of the complex matrices that Saint Germain holds for the golden age?
You may think that this will only make the inequality between certain nations greater, and this is true on a temporary basis. Some nations must be the first ones to begin manifesting the matrix for the golden age. As they do so, they will make progress far beyond those nations who are not yet ready. But you see, the golden age cannot be manifest all at once all over the world. It must be started somewhere where you break through the barrier, you break through the veil, and start bringing into the physical octave the matrices of Saint Germain.
When some nations have manifested this physically, then you have a physical proof that this is possible. Suddenly, there can be a shift in the collective consciousness where more and more people begin to accept that this is a possibility. You who are ascended master students may look at our teachings about the golden age and you take them for granted, you think it should be obvious to all people. But I tell you that there are many nations where the vast majority of the people simply do not have the awareness needed to accept our teachings.
Why Muslims reject progressive revelation
They would look at them as pure fantasy, or they would look at the fact they go beyond their religion and then they would reject them outright, as even being the works of the devil. Just look at how many nations are so trapped in the mindset that is dominating the Muslim religion right now that they would reject anything that contradicts the Koran or goes beyond the Koran. You may think this is ironic because, after all, these people believe that God, through the Archangel Gabriel, revealed the Koran to man.
Therefore, you might think that they should be open to the possibility that God, through Archangel Gabriel or other ascended masters, could give new revelation. But you see, the mindset created by the fallen angels is that there could never be new revelation because the previous revelation was perfect and adequate. If new revelation was forthcoming, it would prove that the previous was not complete as it is claimed to be. You see the catch-22 that these nations are in. Therefore, the vast majority of the people in such nations could not accept our teachings, even if they were explained to them.
This, of course, is also the case in many of the nations in Africa. I am not hereby saying that there are not people in all of these nations who are ready for our teachings. I am simply saying that there are so few that it would not be realistic to expect that there would be a widespread acceptance of some of our ideas.
I am not here even talking about a widespread acceptance of our outer teachings or our existence. I am talking about an acceptance of more subtle ideas by the people. We do not only spread new ideas through sponsored messengers and organizations. We spread them in many different ways, but again we must work primarily in the nations where at least the biggest possible number of people are open to these new ideas because there minds are not so imprisoned by the old concepts and ideas.
The way to bring change in Africa
What I will say, as a general statement about Africa, is that it presents a very difficult challenge to the world. This challenge has unfortunately been created by the fallen beings by taking what happened in colonial times and the entire issue of slavery in the United States, and distorting the relationship between different peoples of different races and skin color to such a point where it is almost impossible to bring forth golden age ideas about Africa.
Many of the wealthy developed nations in the world still suffer from what we might call a “guilt complex” about colonial times. They barely dare to debate freely what potentially could happen in Africa. They are not even open to some of the radical new thinking that is necessary if Africa is to be brought out of its current stalemate, or even the downward spiral that you see in many nations.
Neither are there very many people in Africa itself who are open to such ideas. The entire international community, such as the United Nations, is not open to these ideas. Therefore, there is not much point in us bringing out these ideas as the collective consciousness is right now. But I will give you a hint.
If there was to be a positive development in Africa, there would have to be created an international organization. This organization would have to go far beyond what has been envisioned for the United Nations. It could not be created from or within the United Nations because that organization is simply too stuck in its self-created matrices.
There would have to be a new organization created. It would have to be an organization that could make an overall assessment based on many, many different considerations. It would have to be an organization that would have to look at certain regions of Africa and say: “What is a viable way to turn the current situation into an upward spiral that will benefit most of the people who live in that area?”
You would have to think in radical new ways. You would have to acknowledge one very simple fact, and that is that most of the nations you currently see in Africa are simply not viable nations from a variety of perspectives. Many of these nations, especially in sub-Saharan Africa, have been created in highly artificial ways, going all the way back to Colonial times, but also based on very complex patterns of racial and especially tribal conflicts.
If you were to really turn things around in Africa, you would have to identify certain regions from an overall perspective and say: “How can we create an economically viable region that can move towards giving prosperity to all of the people living there?” This would in the beginning require an international force that could come in and suppress the tribal warlords and the warfare you see going on right now. It would require a radical new thinking on how to use the natural resources available without allowing single people or multinational corporations to exploit all of the profit without giving it to the benefit of the people.
Can you see that in order to avoid or transcend the exploitation by multinational corporations, you would have to create a multinational “corporation” that could function in a way that is not driven by profit or political interests? This is the only practical way to bring true change to Africa.
Unfortunately, it is not currently practical to create such an organization. Not even the most developed nations in the world are ready to seriously consider creating such an organization. There are so many concerns, so much baggage from colonial times – from two world wars, from the struggle between capitalism and communism, from the whole issue of multinational corporations – that no nation is ready to seriously consider this.
Yet unless such an organization is created, there is very little hope that the current struggle in Africa will be transcended any time soon. We of the ascended masters are greatly concerned that the warfare and the struggle you have seen on other continents must be repeated in Africa before a majority of the African people have had so much pain that they are ready to look for an alternative.
We have not given much teaching about Africa for there are very few people who are willing to listen to the radical, or so they would see them, ideas about what needs to happen on the African continent. You know very well the law: “When the student is ready, the teacher appears.” Certainly, we have the ideas that would transform Africa into a number of regions that would be in an upward spiral. Certainly, Saint Germain has a golden age matrix for the area you now call Africa. But until enough students are ready to even consider these ideas, what would be the point in releasing them?
Who would be willing to listen? And if no-one is willing to listen, why then would we spend the time and the energy of our messenger to bring them forth? Why would we not concentrate our efforts on where there is a greater potential to bring certain nations or regions closer to the golden age.
When the student is ready
You see, we of the ascended masters do not have what you so often see among human beings: personal preferences, likes and dislikes. We do not have the emotional attachments, the evaluations, that you have. We look at the earth neutrally. We love all people everywhere, but we also look realistically at where people are at in consciousness. We look at the fact that we have limited resources available for speaking directly to people.
Therefore, we must use our resources in the way that has the greatest chance of having a positive impact. This I trust that many of you will be able to understand. It is clear that we hope the situation will change, we have plans for bringing about this change. As soon as things do change, then of course we will begin bringing forth more teaching. This is not only true about Africa, but about many other regions of the world.
You see, my beloved, there are complex equations here. Why has this Messenger not been in South America for years? Because there has not been a student body who was willing to, not only invite him but to hold the balance for a sponsored messenger visiting the area.
Conferences for 2015
This brings me to the final topic I wanted to discourse on. We now have two conferences planned for this summer. I am personally looking forward to these conferences. I know that there is a potential that they can bring much needed light to the area of Europe and the United States.
This messenger has not had a conference in the United States for some time. We have much light we want to bring there; we have much light we want to bring to Europe. I strongly hope that all of you consider yourself ascended master students will make an effort to attend or in other ways support these conferences.
There is great value in our students coming together physically, for much more light can be released, not only through the messenger but through all of those who participate with sincerity and purity of motive and intention. There are always some who come without having clarified their motives for coming, and sometimes they have selfish motives. Those who do have a certain purity of motive become conduits for the light, and the more people come together and the greater the harmony and unity in the group, the more light we can release.
We hope, therefore, that you will consider supporting this effort. I very much hope that you will also help spread the word about my vigil so that we can get more and more people and create more of a momentum.
Planetary initiations for 2015
My beloved, it is an important step for the planet that we have started releasing these books in the series called: “The Path to Self Mastery.” These next years, the total of seven years where the planet is being initiated by one of the seven rays per year, are very important. This year, as you know, the planetary initiation is on the Third Ray of Love and the book The Mystical Initiations of Love is extremely important for setting the foundation.
You can do yourself a great favor by studying this book throughout the year and by giving at least one invocation a day throughout the year. This takes only twenty minutes of your time. The reward I assure you will be worth it. But you can also do the planet an immense favor by using this book and the invocations, because you help create a trail in the collective consciousness.
You can see for yourself that relationships is one of the most complex aspects of your lives. But then look at the more developed nations and look at the divorce rate, and look at the problems that people are having with relationships. Then consider the service you can give by giving these invocations and by sending out these ideas and the light into the collective consciousness.
There is a great need for a breakthrough in the relationship between all people but especially between men and women. As the book makes it clear, we have entered a new phase where there is a need for an entirely new relationship between men and women. Who will bring it forth, my beloved, unless those who are open to ascended master teachings become the forerunners. Therefore, we look to you to make use of these teachings.
Book about changing the world
I am also excited about the new book, that has not yet been announced, about how you can help change the world. This will become the first book in a series of books that are specifically designed on the matrix where we give dictations and these dictations are turned into invocations.
This matrix is extremely powerful, as those of you will know who have made use of some of the books, such as the book about Clearing the Chakras. There is currently no more powerful way to clear your chakras than that book, and I can assure you that as we bring forth these books in the series of how to spiritualize the world there will be no more powerful tools available in the physical octave than these books.
The matrix of studying a dictation and giving an invocation is extremely powerful. It serves both the Alpha and Omega of raising awareness and transforming energy, and this is how you transform a world. This is how a relatively small number of people can have a decisive impact on transforming a world.
I know well that I do not have millions of people are who are willing to listen to or read this dictation. Therefore, we must bring forth tools that can work, that can have the greatest possible impact with the number of people we do have.
As I said: “Appreciate what you have.” Make the best possible use of it. Catch some of my enthusiasm, my beloved. Catch my Joy. Catch my gratitude, and allow yourselves to rise above these spirals of pessimism and discouragement that are so common in the world.
There are all kinds of doomsayers in the world, my beloved. They will tell you that this world is going to hell in a hand basket in five minutes. But my beloved, I have been an ascended master for two thousand years. You can go back to any year during those two thousand years and there have also been naysayers who would tell you that the world was going to end in the near future. This is a phenomenon created by the fallen beings.
Do not fall prey to this trick. It has worked on you enough times in past lives. Do not fall for it this time. Accept that with God all things are possible. When you make use of our teachings and our tools in the form of invocations and decrees, you are with God.
My beloved, what more can I say? If what I say has not been sufficient, what more can I say? Thus, I will bid you a fond “adieu” and thank you for your attention and your efforts in these vigils.
