The Four Stages of Spiritual Growth – Victimhood to True Empowerment – Chip Richards – 8-17-16


By Chip Richards 

A Guide for the journey from Victimhood to True Empowerment



Einstein has a well-shared quote in our modern day which says, “we cannot solve a problem with the same level of consciousness that created it.” This is a powerful realisation for humanity to embrace as we explore pathways to regenerate the vitality of our living planet and build systems for living that will sustain us harmoniously into the future. But if a shift in consciousness is what is required… how do we actually do (or be) that? How do we create a shift in who we are being such that it positively impacts our visions and our actions in the world? And how do we gauge our progress on the path?

In recent times, our path of personal and planetary development has been influenced by a myriad of different perspectives in science, spirituality, indigenous wisdom and multiple schools of self awareness, self development, movement and thought. Ancient and modern practices have merged with the intent of helping us shed limiting patterns and past experience in order to more powerfully align with the infinite possibilities of life.

In the mid 1980’s, author and founder of Agape International Spiritual Center Michael Beckwith introduced a simple model for understanding the Four Stages of Spiritual Growth and Development. While this is not the only guide to understand the stages of human consciousness, the context of Beckwith’s model is a practical and empowering perspective on our journey from victim-hood to empowerment, connection and oneness with the greater forces of life. Let’s take a look.

Ancient and modern practices have merged to help us align more powerfully with the infinite possibilities of life.

Stage one: ‘TO ME’

The first stage of spiritual development is what Beckwith calls the ‘To Me’ stage. It’s also referred to as the victim stage as it is an early level of awareness where our primary perception is that life is happening ‘to us’. Like a child new to the world, or someone who has not yet claimed full responsibility for his/her life, in the ‘To Me’ stage we experience ourselves at the effect of the people and circumstances of our life. There are times in each of our lives when we feel like we are on the receiving end of challenges, opportunities, relationships, job assignments, etc. and while we may have desires for a different circumstance, at the time it really feels as though ‘life is happening to us’.

As with each of the four stages, in order to move from one stage to the next, Beckwith tells us we must be willing to let go of something en route to claiming a new aspect of who we really are. In order to move from the ‘To Me’ stage of our development into stage two, what we must be willing to let go of… is blame. After reacting, resisting and blaming others (or life itself) for our circumstance, eventually we come to a place where we are ready to claim more of a sense of personal responsibility and become more of a generative force in our life. Through choice or necessity we make a shift and begin to experience ourselves taking matters of our life into our own hands.

Stage one is also referred to as the victim stage
Like a child new to the world, Stage 1 feels like life is happening “To Me.”

Stage two: ‘BY ME’

Even if we are fully justified to blame others for our current situation, there comes a time when we must realise that as long as we are making others responsible for our circumstance, we are giving away our power and limiting our ability to make the necessary changes. As we let go of the need to blame anyone (including ourselves!) for where we are, we open ourselves to shift into our next stage of development, becoming active manifestors of the path we truly want/need to be on.

During stage two, the ‘By Me’ phase of our journey, we may initially feel stretched or challenged by our circumstance, but this challenge is often what is needed for us to dig deeper and become a causative agent in our experience. This is the stage of the journey where we get to discover that we are far more capable than we realised. We are not victims of circumstance but rather creators of it.

The ‘By Me’ stage of development is often a building (or rebuilding) phase, where our actions must be grounded, real, focused and self-driven. Breakthroughs in this arena often require focused determination (and sometimes sweat!) and they leave us with the sense of personal accomplishment, “I did it! I can do it!”. In the stage of ‘By Me’, we move past victim-hood and begin to emerge with a sense of personal ownership of the life we create, earn, cause and achieve. This is a powerful step on the path.

In the “By Me” Stage, we take responsibility as active creators of our reality.

Stage three: ‘THROUGH ME’

When we have worked hard at developing skills in any activity or endeavor (from music to sports to mathematics), there is a moment when we cross over from pure focused effort to a feeling of grace and flow with what we are doing. We may have been building skills and trying the same thing over and over for quite some time, when suddenly, we go from playing the music to feeling as though the music is actually playing through us. We go from being the surfer using our skills to surf the wave, to feeling the energy of the ocean guiding our flow upon it. From being the writer of the story, to feeling as though the creative essence of the story itself is expressing through our pen onto the page.

When we enter ‘Through Me’ consciousness we go from a sense of personal significance grounded in our own achievements, to feeling a sense of humility about being part of something greater than ourselves. In order to move from the ‘By Me’ stage into stage three, what we must be willing to let go of is our need for control. As we let go of having to be the soul generator and controller of each outcome, we open ourselves up to discover a new sense of trust and connectedness to the bigger story/currents/song ready to flow through us.

Sometimes the experience of ‘Through Me’ comes as a graceful extension of personal exertion, and sometimes it arrives more abruptly as we reach the limit of our own personal skills or abilities and have no choice but to surrender, opening ourselves up to be conduits or instruments of the higher energetic forces within.

We feel a sense of humility about being part of something greater than ourselves
We feel a sense of humility about being part of something greater than ourselves.

Stage four: ‘AS ME’

When we let go of blame and move from our perception of life as something that happens ‘To Me’, we begin to discover our true power in life happens ‘By Me’. When we let go of the need to control, we move from our experience of life happening ‘By Me’, to discovering our connection to the greater powers of life moving ‘Through Me’. As we allow our individual expression to merge completely with the energy we are experiencing or creating in the world, we realise we are actually part of the infinite creative force of the universe, which is expressing and experiencing itself individualised ‘As Me’.I am God/spirit/universe/nature/consciousness.

As we travel through the third stage of our development and experience a sense of the greater flow moving ‘Through Me’ consistently in life or endeavour, we begin to reach this fourth leaping-off point and the simple but profound realisation that whatever is moving ‘Through Me’ is also inside of me. That this greater energetic force and I are actually made of the same source material. Like a ray of the sun or a wave in the ocean, I am actually an individualised expression of this greater force, which is now moving, breathing and acting in the world ‘As Me’.

A picture must possess a real power to generate light, and for a long time now I’ve been conscious of expressing myself through light, or rather in light. – Henri Matisse

To move beyond the experience of life occurring ‘Through Me’ and into the ‘As Me’ stage of spiritual development, what we must be willing to let go of is our sense of separation. As we do this (or rather ‘be’ this), we open ourselves to discover the experience of genuine unity or oneness in life and endeavor. We release our perception of the infinite nature of the universe as a causative energy that exists outside of us, and we open ourselves to experience this infinite nature in and ‘as’ our very being. The music, the ocean, the story are not only moving ‘Through Me’… they are the living expression of who I am. This is flow in its greatest sense and many would say it is our ultimate reason for being here. Through our actions, experiences, relationships and being, to remember and experience ourselves as unique expressions of the absolute.

The music, the ocean, the story are not only moving ‘Through Me’… they are the living expression of who I am
The music, the ocean, the story are not only moving ‘Through Me’… they are the living expression of who I am.

Takeaways and Reflection

We each have experiences of these stages of development at different times in different areas of our life. Whether or not we arrive at a permanent state of ‘As Me’ in every aspect of our existence, it is powerful to consider what shifts we can make within ourselves to support our steps along the path.

Stage one: ‘To Me’

Life is a series of events, relationships and circumstances that happen to me.
In order to move to beyond stage one, I must be willing to let go of: blame.
In doing so, I claim/discover: responsibility and personal empowerment.

Stage two: ‘By Me’

I move into my role as a manifestor, claiming my ability to create and influence my circumstance in life.
In order to move beyond stage two, I must be willing to let go of: control.
In doing so, I discover: trust and connection with energetic forces beyond my individual self.

Stage three: ‘Through Me’

I am an instrument and conduit for Life to move and express through me.
In order to move beyond stage three, I must be willing to let go of: separation.
In doing so, I discover: oneness.

Stage four: ‘As Me’

I and the infinite forces of the universe are ONE. I am God/spirit/life, being me. At once unique and intrinsically part of the greater whole. I am one with all of life.

We each have experiences of these stages of development at different times in different areas of our life
We each have experiences of these stages of development at different times in different areas of our life.

Is there an area of your life that you are currently seeking to create a shift in your experience?

If so, what stage of development would you currently place yourself in this area?
What might you need to let go of or claim in order to cause a shift in your own consciousness and open the path for your next stage of experience?

Each one of us is Life personalized. We are each Life as a person; therefore, each one of us contains within himself all the intelligence, the power, the faculties and the instruments for the expression of Life… To know that Life became you for a purpose and that you occupy a place no one else in all the world occupies. – Dan Custer (The Miracle of Mind Power)

Jason DeMakis @ in5d.com – 5 Reasons Why Personal/Spiritual Growth Is Like Hiking A Mountain – 12-14-15



Jason DeMakis @ in5d.com   –   5 Reasons Why Personal/Spiritual Growth Is Like Hiking A Mountain   –   12-14-15




This past weekend, I headed out to hike Mt. Monadnock.

Located in Jaffrey, New Hampshire, it’s one of the most popular hikes in the region.

Rising an impressive 3,165 feet above sea level, it was something I knew I had to experience!

During our 3.5 hour hike, I came to several insightful realizations regarding the relationships between personal/spiritual growth, and making your way up a mountain.

Grab your packs, snacks, and water; it’s go-time!

5. You Have to Keep Moving Forward…No Matter What

When hiking up a mountain, it’s imperative that you maintain forward movement.

If you don’t – then you’re no longer hiking said mountain, are you?

Progress is always in the forward direction.

To go forward is to close the distance between yourself and your goal – or in this case, the mountain summit.

Hiking teaches you a lot of little things about progress.

One of the simplest (yet biggest) realizations you’ll have is that your hike is composed of nothing but the continuous activity of placing one foot in front of the other.

The journey of a million miles begins with one step…

4. The Next Step is Always There…No Matter How Uncomfortable it Appears

Speaking of taking steps – the next place for your foot to rest and launch you forward is always there.

I have yet to encounter anything on any hike which made me say “Yup, there’s absolutely no way we can cross this. There’s nowhere to put my feet or climb up. Let’s turn around and go back, guys”.

There’s ALWAYS a place for you to leverage yourself and keep moving forward.

The key realization here, is that the next step isn’t always going to appear comfortable or appealing.

This is besides the point.

The next step is the next step, and it must be taken in order to continue progressing.

Sometimes it’s a steep rock face that’s waist (or shoulder) high, and you’ll have to think in the moment about how to get yourself up and over it:

  • Will you use the little rocks to the left?
  • Will you shimmy between some of the larger boulders on the right?
  • Or, will you find a way right straight up and over the center of the “block”?

I’ll leave it to your imagination to come up with the real-life scenarios that “a path full of rocks going up a steep incline” can symbolize for you.

3. Most People Will Stop, Stall, Complain, Make Excuses, and/or Give Up

On your travels up any decent-sized mountain, you’re inevitably going to come across people who stop for excessive – and sometimes indefinite – amounts of time.

You can use these people in one of two ways:

  1. As guideposts to either signal that it’s time for a quick water/snack break
  2. Permission to give up

This lesson doesn’t begin and end on the mountain, however.

You’ll see people with this sort of attitude in every area of life.

Will you stick with your goal of starting your career, or give in and accept traditional employment just minutes from the “summit of success”?

Will you push through that rough spot in your relationship and persevere…or will you throw in the towel, and be overcome by the gravity of the situation?

Will you stick to your new diet…or will you give in and “roll back down the mouton” via a junk food landslide (I’m getting creative here, it’s only 5 am :P )?

2. The Most Intense, Trying Portion is Right Before The Summit

Now, this is integral: the most trying, testing, difficult portions of any good mountain hike will be the section just before the summit. It’s here that the steepest rocks, crags, and paths await you.

Anyone with decent motivation can make it to this point, but only those with serious commitment, gusto, and determination (not to mention plenty of water and high-carb snacks for fuel) will push on from here.

This is the portion of the hike where you’ll see the people in #3 hanging out, sitting down, tanning, playing with their phones, etc.

That’s NOT for you, however.

You’re too close to succumb to the petty and trivial distractions.

Your legs will be screaming at you to stop.

Your lungs will be worked.

You’ll be sweating more than before, as the forest line you used for cover (from the Sun) this entire time stops behind you – as if saying “LOL, have fun with that!”

It’s time for that final intense set of weight lifting.

That final rep.

That final split-second decision between expressing yourself fully to the world, or allowing gravity to pull you back down.

No – that’s too easy.

That’s for everyone who’s decided to sit down and “take a break” (indefinitely).

The final choice-point is upon you, and the end-goal (in this case, the summit) you’ve been moving toward is now a few hundred feet in front of you…

1. From The Top, You Can “See Everything More Clearly”

…And you’ve made it.

A wave of relief passes over you as you reach the summit (and/or any goal you can possibly set for yourself that actually tests you, and pushes you outside of your comfort zone).

Suddenly, you realize that from this new vantage point – all of the walls, water bodies, valleys, and obstacles which seemed so intimidating – look like pebbles and puddles.

You’re above them – literally!

You’re consciousness, spirit, and self have grown to overcome those things.

They are no longer obstacles. They are transformative experiences.

When faced with similar tests in the future, you’ll forever remember overcoming them.

Your perception for difficulty refines itself to a new point.

Suddenly, this mountain doesn’t seem as daunting as it did when you were down at the base, taking your first step toward it.

You then realize that there is no “final mountain”.

There is only continuous climbing.

This becomes exhilarating and rewarding in a brand new way, as distraction and triviality are replaced with a new thirst for growth.

There will always be another mountain waiting to test you.

To push you.

To grow you.

You can see other mountains looming in the distance, beckoning your spirit to choose another path, and start anew…

Jesus Christ – DNA Activation and Spiritual Growth – via Kim Michaels – 9-21-14


TOPICS: DNA stores ONLY information about proteins – popular belief about DNA is wrong – not all information about a human being is stored in DNA – DNA receives and processes information from a higher source – materialist have over-interpreted the importance of DNA – DNA does not carry information about spiritual faculties – New Age people built upon fallacy of materialism – your spiritual faculties not dependent upon the body – spiritual maturity means mastery of mind over matter – spiritual growth not mechanical but conscious process – you were not created with advanced abilities – Planet X – use logic – advanced civilizations of the past could manipulate DNA – they were not aliens – some people have incarnated from other planets; not travelled here physically – some junk DNA has a function – Jesus had only 2 strands of DNA – Christ discernment more important than clairvoyant abilities – many ideas come from false teachers – creating a virtual spiritual world – a warning –

Channeler: Kim Michaels 

Source: http://www.ascendedmasteranswers.com/spiritual-path/christhood/184-…

Question: My thinking is that the vast majority of people today only have 2 active strands of DNA and only 10% of their brains functioning on all cylinders so to speak, hence disease, violence, and a lack of knowing how connected they are to their creator. As Gaia moves towards a 5th dimensional vibratory rate, Im wondering how far of a jump of active strands of DNA do you feel humans might make in the present energy shift and what might this imply in terms of our way of living and overall capabilities while in embodiment?……..

 Needless to say Im a little tired of hearing of “junk DNA” from “scientists” …..
The second part of my DNA question is in your incarnation as Jeshua 2000 years ago, how many active strands of DNA did you have and how many active strands does one have to have to do the sort of advanced healing work you did and perform the “miracles” like walking on water\ intricate manipulation of matter and defiance of the “laws” of physics? 

Can you speak about the “Saint Saint Germain Layer” of DNA and how that works?


Answer from ascended master Jesus through Kim Michaels:


This question opens up a number of interesting perspectives, so I will give several thoughts on it—the most important one being at the end.

Thought 1
It would be constructive if both spiritually minded and scientifically minded people would realize that DNA is a storing mechanism for information but that it contains only three types of instructions:

  • Assembly instructions for how to make proteins.
  • Control instructions for when to make certain proteins.
  • Instructions for how to transfer and combine proteins.
  • DNA contains NO OTHER instructions. In other words, the function of DNA is to allow the cell to construct proteins, which might be seen as the building blocks of the cells. DNA has no other function.


This fact can be found in any biology textbook, yet the popular perception of DNA is that it contains all of the information needed to construct a biological “mechanism” as complex as a human being. In other words, most people have been indoctrinated to believe that every aspect of their beings – including their personality and even their spiritual faculties – is stored in their DNA.

In reality, DNA can be compared to a mason who knows everything about how to make and stack bricks yet is unable to draw an architectural plan for a house or do the engineering calculations. In reality, the mason himself could not build a house but needs someone else to provide the blueprint. Likewise, DNA cannot construct a human being with all of its complex psychological and spiritual faculties. It cannot even construct the human body without being directed by an intelligent being who can read the blueprint and thus activate the DNA and get it to build the proteins that make up the cells.

My point is that if you look at a specific hereditary trait, such as the color of your eyes, the information that determines your actual eye-color is not contained in the DNA. It is contained in the blueprint for your body and is communicated to your DNA at the appropriate moment. This blueprint is contained in an energy field which stores information that cannot be stored in the DNA. The energy field is partly created by combining the energy fields of the parents with the energy field of the incoming lifestream. The actual traits of your body and outer mind are communicated to the DNA by an intelligent being – called a “body elemental” – which is able to read the blueprint and communicate it to the DNA.

I am aware that most people will say that this information contradicts what they were told in school. Which proves that we need to consider why people have been conditioned to believe that DNA is a kind of philosopher’s stone that contains all of the information needed to construct a human “machine.”

The simple fact is that the discovery of DNA became a very convenient way for materialistic scientists to ignore some of the weaknesses in the theory of evolution. This theory cannot answer a number of questions, including how an organism can “adapt” to an environment in which it can neither survive nor reproduce—which is what life had to do to move from the ocean to dry land.

So by creating the myth that DNA contains all of the information necessary to produce a human being and that DNA can “mutate” in random ways, materialists believed they could explain every aspect of evolution—even though they cannot explain exactly how DNA constructs a body when it only knows how to build proteins. Neither can they explain how a purely mechanical process – the production of proteins – can account for the existence of scientists who are consciously investigating the DNA.

Thought 2
My point is that materialistic scientists have created a fictional overlay upon the solid scientific findings about DNA. They have not been willing to acknowledge that DNA ONLY contains instructions related to protein production and that this cannot account for the higher faculties of the human mind. Thus, they have turned DNA into a black box in which they can postulate the existence of mechanisms that cannot be proven scientifically.

They simply assume that every question that cannot be answered by the theory of evolution has a mechanical answer that they have not yet found. They believe that one day scientists will pull this mechanical explanation out of the black box of DNA, as a magician pulling a rabbit out of a black hat. This allows them to ignore the fact that the theory of evolution is not a complete theory and that it will never explain the origin of life—unless it is expanded to include the existence of energy fields that use DNA as a communications interface with the cell.

I hope this can now lead spiritually minded people to conclude that DNA does NOT carry information about your personality or your spiritual faculties. In other words, your spiritual abilities are NOT determined by or dependent upon your DNA. Your DNA ONLY influences the properties of your physical body. Your spiritual abilities are determined solely by your spiritual development. Your lifestream is not dependent upon the body but enters the body after it has been “built.”

The simple fact is that after materialistic scientists had created a myth about the “infinite” amount of information stored in the DNA, certain spiritually minded people built upon this fiction and created the theory that there are more strands of DNA than the two discovered by science. Thus, in order to unlock your full spiritual potential, you “only” have to activate all of your strands of DNA – be that 12, 44, 144 or however many – which these people can – conveniently – do for a fee.

Do you see my point? The idea that your spiritual abilities are mechanical and are stored in a mechanical device such as DNA – or even an energy field – is a double-fiction that started with people who has an agenda to “prove” that life has no spiritual side. The fiction about DNA created by materialists has simply been taken to another level by people who are spiritual and might have good intentions but who lack Christ discernment.

Thought 3
The simple fact is that the higher spiritual faculties are NOT dependent upon the physical body and do not need DNA to be activated. They are dependent exclusively on the lifestream’s maturity, which is not something that can be limited by or unlocked by a mechanical process. It is a creative process that involves choices you make, and spiritual growth cannot be reduced to a mechanical “device.” True spiritual growth requires the raising of your consciousness until you become able to use the higher spiritual laws that allow you to have the mastery of mind over matter. You cannot – which should be logical – exercise the mastery of mind over matter by using a device – the brain and body – made out of matter.

My point being that it simply does not make sense to take the purely physical, mechanical device of DNA and extend it by postulating the existence of a non-physical or spiritual DNA that can be unlocked and magically give you superhuman abilities. This is simply a modern equivalent of the age-old dream of an automatic or mechanical salvation.

Take note that I am NOT denying that you have an energy field that stores information and that this is done in a somewhat mechanical manner. Nor am I denying that you have latent spiritual abilities that need to be “unlocked.” I am saying that unlocking your spiritual potential is not a mechanical process that someone can do for you in 15 minutes—or in any length of time. It is something you must do for yourself through a process that is NOT mechanical but creative.

Spiritual growth is protected by a safety mechanism designed to make sure that those who have not risen above the selfishness of the ego cannot attain unlimited power. The dream that it is possible to mechanically unlock spiritual powers – without abandoning the ego – is a false dream that has been constructed and kept alive by those who seek to deceive spiritual seekers into following the false path that can never lead to the Christ consciousness.

Furthermore, the spiritual abilities that can be unlocked are those that you had attained before you “fell” into the duality consciousness and created the ego. Depending on the individual lifestream, these abilities might not be that advanced. Above and beyond that, spiritual abilities have to be developed, and thus it is not a matter of simply unlocking something you already have.

It is another fictional concept that your lifestream was created with unlimited or god-like abilities. Your lifestream was created with limited abilities and was meant to develop its abilities by wisely exercising its free will. The potential for what can be developed is unlimited, but it has to be worked for—not magically unlocked.

Thought 4
Let me give you a sketchy example of how far these false teachers will go in order to ensnare those who are not alert. Some of the proponents of the existence of extra strands of DNA have attempted to support their theory by referring to a book by Zecharia Sitchin called The 12th Planet. Some people have taken Sitchin’s findings and built unto them.

The basic idea is that – based on archeological evidence and ancients texts – the earth had been visited by aliens in spaceships. These beings came here from a planet that is part of this solar system but takes 3600 years to complete one revolution around the Sun. Thus, every 3600 years, this planet – called Marduk, Niburu or Planet X – is close enough to the earth that beings from it can visit this planet.

These beings supposedly visited earth in the past and had technology and abilities that were far beyond what human beings have today. Thus, they were seen as gods by certain ancient civilizations and their sophisticated technology – including rocket ships – was described in ancient texts.

The aliens supposedly came to earth to mine its resources. Yet because they were not willing to do the hard work, they attempted to create a slave race out of their own DNA, which had 12 strands to account for their god-like powers. Yet even this became problematic, and thus the aliens merged their own DNA with that of Homo Erectus to create Homo Sapiens as a slave race to harvest the resources they needed. In this process they deactivated 10 strands of DNA which supposedly accounts for the fact that Homo Sapiens only has 2 strands of DNA.

One might wonder why these genetic scientists did not simply leave out the other 10 strands of DNA instead of deactivating them? Of course, that would invalidate the theory that you can activate the other 10 strands and thereby magically acquire god-like abilities. Which in turn would make it unnecessary for you to purchase the services of those who claim they can activate your DNA.

The reason I am giving this brief summary of an elaborate theory is to show you that it is extremely important for spiritual seekers to use Christ discernment, even common sense and logic, when evaluating such claims. In this case, take the idea that there is a planet which orbits your Sun and takes 3600 years to complete one rotation. This planet supposedly has an elliptical orbit that in one extreme takes it closer to the Sun than the earth and in the other extreme takes is much farther away from the Sun.

If such a planet did exist, it would at one point be so close to the Sun that it would be much hotter than earth. At the other extreme of its orbit it would be so much farther away from the Sun that it would be much colder than the earth. Thus, if life did exist on such a planet, it would have to be able to adapt to these extremes in temperatures. This, in itself is highly unlikely, but now take it to the next level.

You know that the earth is the only planet with known life, and the reason is that earth has a stable temperature range that is neither extremely hot nor extremely cold. Thus, life on earth has developed within a very small temperature range. Yet the theories about alien visitors claim two things:

  • Alien life developed on a planet with extreme swings in temperature and is able to adapt to these extremes. This form of life would have to be able to live in conditions that are similar to both Mercury and Pluto—both of which have no – material – life forms.
  • This alien life form – adapted to extreme swings in temperature – would have DNA similar to the DNA that evolved in the much more stable environment of earth. The alien DNA is supposedly similar enough to earth DNA to be merged with an organism that has evolved on this planet.


My point is to show you that these theories defy logic, common sense and Christ discernment. They are nothing but fiction made up to deceive spiritual seekers into blind alleys that consume their time and attention without ever leading to genuine spiritual growth.

Take note that I am not denying that there existed past civilizations that were more technologically advanced than modern civilization. Nor am I denying that scientists in some of these civilizations had the ability to manipulate genes and in fact created many animal species and even influenced the genes of homo sapiens.

However, the existence of advanced civilizations in the past does not necessitate alien visitors. This is another example of how some people build on the errors of materialistic scientists. These scientists postulate that human life has only existed on this planet for a very short time span. And they claim evolution can only go in one direction, thus there could not have been past civilizations that were more evolved than the present one. Both claims are incorrect since human life has existed on earth for millions of years and a number of civilizations have risen to great height only to self-destruct. Yet some people have taken this to mean that ancients accounts of advanced technology must come from alien visitations.

If you look at the earth today, you will see an amazing range of technological abilities between tribes in the Amazon rain forest and western civilization. Even greater ranges have existed in the past, which accounts for the fact that certain past civilizations were visited by people with superior technology and mistook them for Gods because they arrived in rocket ships and had superior abilities. Yet the visitors simply came from another civilization on earth.

My point is that the existence of ancient myths or even artifacts can be explained without postulating that earth was visited by alien civilizations. Likewise, the presence on earth of people who have superior abilities or knowledge does not mean that these beings traveled here in spaceships. The earth is a crossroads for lifestreams from many different planetary systems who have been allowed to embody in human bodies. Some of them have had a degree of memory of their lifestream’s origins on other planets or in distant galaxies. Thus, people have created the myth that they must have travelled here physically instead of incarnating.

Thought 5
Let me now comment on some of the questions raised above:

My thinking is that the vast majority of people today only have 2 active strands of DNA … hence disease, violence, and a lack of knowing how connected they are to their creator.


All people have only 2 strands of DNA and that is all they need in order to ascend. The imperfections currently seen on this planet are not caused by insufficient DNA strands and cannot be fixed by activating “additional” strands of DNA because they simply do not exist.

I’m wondering how far of a jump of active strands of DNA do you feel humans might make in the present energy shift and what might this imply in terms of our way of living and overall capabilities while in embodiment?


There is no jump to make and there are no additional strands of DNA. Let me give a simple analogy. As you write an e-mail on your computer, you are using a computer program that contains instructions for how to form letters and display them on the screen. This computer program is completely mechanical and it does not understand the meaning of the words you are typing. It is simply an interface that allows you to interact with the hardware of your computer.

Likewise, your DNA is only an interface that allows your lifestream and body elemental to interact with the hardware of your physical body. What comes out of your computer program is mainly the product of what you put into it. Obviously, the program sets certain rules for how you write, and it can even help you spell the words correctly. But the program cannot prevent you from writing a great literary work nor can it guarantee that what you write is not meaningless nonsense.

The computer program only responds to your input and so does your DNA (except for some response to environmental input). Having “super-human” abilities is not a matter of activating super-human DNA. It is exclusively a matter of attaining the Christ consciousness whereby you can – while in a physical body – make use of the spiritual laws that supersede the material laws.

Needless to say Im a little tired of hearing of “junk DNA” from “scientists” …..


Scientists will one day discover that most of the so-called junk DNA has a function. However, there is a certain “waste” built into the workings of nature, at least as it currently functions on earth. Thus, some of this DNA truly has no function and carries no information.

The second part of my DNA question is in your incarnation as Jeshua 2000 years ago, how many active strands of DNA did you have and how many active strands does one have to have to do the sort of advanced healing work you did and perform the “miracles” like walking on water\intricate manipulation of matter and defiance of the “laws” of physics? 


I assume you now realize that I had no more than 2 strands of DNA and that no more is needed in order to master the laws of nature. The idea that the Christ consciousness can be encoded in human DNA and can thus be inherited is another false idea construed by those who pursue a mechanical path to salvation. It is no more true than the idea that Mary Magdalene was the Holy grail and that certain royal houses of Europe carried the genes of the Christ consciousness and were thus more fit to rule the people.

Can you speak about the “Saint Saint Germain Layer” of DNA and how that works?


This is another false idea that has no bearing in reality. It is an example of how some people deliberately or ignorantly mix a false idea – extra DNA – with a true idea—the existence of Saint Germain as the spiritual hierarch of the Aquarian Age. They hope this can give their false idea some credibility and thus lure people who are interested in Saint Germain into taking a look at or even believing in their false idea.

Let me make a clear statement. The ascended masters and the Great White Brotherhood NEVER use mechanical devices or processes as a substitute for or a shortcut to spiritual growth. There is no substitute that can allow you to grow spiritually without overcoming the duality consciousness of the ego. It is precisely this duality consciousness – in which any idea can be made to look plausible – that fools people into accepting the false belief that there is a shortcut or that they can mechanically unlock their spiritual potential.

Thought 6
Now for the most important thought I will give you. My basic reason for answering this question is to show you how important it is for spiritual seekers to develop their Christ discernment. It is far more important to have the ability to tell truth from error than it is to long for superhuman or clairvoyant abilities that do not guarantee spiritual maturity. As I said, “Seek ye first the kingdom of God, – the Christ consciousness – and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”

If you use your computer to enter one of the virtual reality environments created on the internet, you know you are entering a fictional world. You know this world is a computer game made up by other people and that it does not exist in the “real world.” You also know that such a made-up world has no connection to reality and thus you do not expect that by roaming around in this world long enough, you will eventually find a doorway that leads to heaven. The people who made this virtual world do not promise you that you will ascend after playing the game nor that you can get back the time you spent playing the game.

Yet there are many channelers and other people who have created what is similar to a virtual world. Some of these people – even most of these people – have the best of intentions, but they do not have Christ discernment. Therefore, they have connected themselves to non-material beings who exist in the emotional and mental – even the lower etheric – realms. These beings have been in those realms sometimes for millions of years and they are very experienced in creating a world that seems real to those who have little discernment. In fact, they are so skilled at creating such a virtual reality that they have trapped themselves in their own worlds, which is why they have not ascended to the spiritual realm and joined the ascended masters.

If a spiritual seeker enters one of these virtual worlds – by studying and believing some of the channeled teachings out there – it is very easy to roam around there for an entire lifetime without ever finding the doorway to heaven—for a virtual world can have no such doorway. Yet in the meantime, you give your spiritual light to those who have created that world and thus contribute to the continuation of the world, even making its magnetic pull stronger so it pulls in more people. By talking about these fantasies as if they were real, you might even influence other people and thus pull them in as well.

Let me put this as clearly as possible. You can find any number of such virtual “spiritual” environments that are blind alleys. They might give you some growth, but they will never allow you to transcend the level of consciousness from which the world was created, and thus they are ultimately dead ends. You will not manifest Christhood or make your ascension as long as you allow yourself to remain in one of these environments.

Obviously, I respect your free will. You have a right to follow any teaching that tickles your fancy. But when you meet me at the end of this lifetime, do not say to me, “Jesus, why didn’t you warn me about this?”


Let those who have ears hear. Let a word to the wise be sufficient.
