Address of Dec. 12, 1999: The ‘Bigger Picture’

by archangel Michael

Greetings to you, dear friends! I have come to you to bring you the blessings of the Lord, and to remind you of your mission and identity. Dear friend, you are living on this planet, as spirit, in the flesh, because you are spirit, and want to learn, to grow, to experience. This experiencing is needed for you to complement your horizon of awareness, to expand your soul. Through learning from all the situations in your life, you raise your level of awareness, and your level of vibration, which refines your existences, and will bring you back to the source of all. Yes, dear friends, the final goal of each soul’s journey is the reunification with the Creator, in a way that is impossible for me to describe at this time. Allow yourself to play your role as human on earth, and like a good actor, you may play your role well, but as any brilliant actor, you need to remain aware that you are simply playing a role, not becoming that role. Some distance from the character is needed to allow viewing of the “bigger picture”, as needed for you to remain centered, or regain your inner balance. This inner balance, or centering, is necessary for being able to fulfill your higher tasks, of experiencing and expressing unconditional love, which is the highest lesson to learn and the ultimate purpose of life for any soul incarnated as human at this time. While there are many steps that lead to this goal, and it is wise to observe each step carefully, it is also possible to take more direct approaches to reach this goal, by following the universal virtues, and living in harmony with the universal laws. Dear friends, as I speak to you on this day, it is also important for you to know that you have come a long way to be where you are, many incarnations have formed you to be who you are today. All these incarnations and past life experiences formed your character, your personality, your likes and dislikes, your desires and fears. While some of this may be selected on purpose for specific tasks in this lifetime, most of it is the result of the past. While you continue to form who you are, you need to also become aware that your past has brought you quite a long way, and you are all ready to enter the new dimension, which is beginning to open up around you, which shall become more and more noticeable within days, weeks and months ahead of you – but expect subtle changes at first, with increasing noticeability as time progresses, and the observation of these changes will vary from person to person, as each soul’s experiences of this time will vary, to some even significantly, which is due to the qualities of the new dimension, as it allows multiple realities to coexist and connect at various points. We will discuss this in more detail in the near future. Be blessed, and be greeted! Amen. Amen. Amen.


Lesson 25: Review And Expansion, Ascension

by archangel Zadkiel

Greetings, dearest friends! The time has come to review some of what we have learned here, and to expand upon the experience. While these lessons are not intended to increase knowledge, but to increase your awareness, and expand your horizon of perception beyond the physical and mind level. This is a process which takes time, which is why we are proceeding step by step, thus allowing you to adjust to the changes within yourself.

In essence, you have learned that you are a spirit, currently in one of many incarnations on earth, playing the role of being human, learning through the vast number of experiences you are collecting in your lifetime. You are not your physical body, it is merely a vehicle for your soul during your stay in the “school of life”. You are not alone in your efforts, you have a tutor, your spirit guide, on your side, and a guardian angel, who ensures that your physical body remains intact long enough to fulfill your tasks you chose before this incarnation. You are connected as soul to the entire creation, which was brought about by a supreme entity, God. While you go through your lives, you may easily get entangled in a web of karma, which can be removed by forgiveness and love. As you forgive those that did you wrong, you more and more will be forgiven as well. You incarnated currently at a very important time, as planet earth is going through the process of elevating it’s prime vibrational level which causes earth to change from being three dimensional, to become a four dimensional entity. This process has begun, although effects have been limited for mankind, it is progressing, and the effects will become more evident as time passes on, and causes many energetic changes for all life on this planet. These changes allow you to “ride along” to the higher level of consciousness of the fourth dimension, which, however, will take some effort. While there are many who ignore or deny these changes, those that are willing can do their spiritual (and physical) work so that they can transcend to this higher dimension, higher level of consciousness. While to some this may appear to be a tough time, the rewards will be truly amazing and wondrous, when you reach the higher level. There is little to fear, mostly fear itself, as well as ignorance. It is a joyous time, which you should enjoy, and welcome all problems of your life, as they are the path to your fulfillment, to your ascension. There are so many blessings around you, brought to you by God’s messengers, the angels. Accept the gifts of love and joy, and learn the meaning of true unconditional love, which is the key to all your searching, striving and living, as it is the purpose of life in the third dimension. Take the time to review what has been said about unconditional love, and re-evaluate your thoughts, feelings and opinions on this matter, as this is a truly vital issue for all of you. May you find the peace in your heart and shine out the true love and light to all that surrounds you. Amen. Amen. Amen.


Lesson 19: Time Is Running Out

by archangel Zadkiel

Greetings to you all, my dear friends on earth! As we come together here again and are joined in a non-physical way, I want to greet you from the spirit world that is around you. I have been sent to assist your quest and guide you on your journey. Now is the time to apply what you have learned throughout your incarnations and proceed with what you have been preparing for. Your soul has spent hundreds and thousands of lifetimes on this and on other planets to learn the lessons of life, and now you have entered the final phase for your time as a three dimensional being as you have spent all these lifetimes preparing for the transition into the next dimension. This new form of existence will bring you an expansion of consciousness, as if so far you have been living inside a small, tiny bottle, and now you are being freed and you can see far beyond that what you have considered your reality until now. You can not only see beyond your current horizon, but you will also be able to understand all that is around you and is part of the creation. This transformation will not come for you by itself, just as you had to work hard to get this far and reach this point of your existence that you were allowed to be born at this time when earth transforms, it now will take some effort on your side if you want to make the best out of this opportunity. Many souls have incarnated that may seem to you to do little to prepare, but do not compare yourself with them, for you do not now which path of experience they have chosen and which are the experiences that they are lacking for completion of their mission. Concentrate on your own development, without being self-centered in a negative way, as sharing and helping others are important virtues, but examine the way you are handling your own development, and see if you can find ways to improve on your efforts. My friends, I have to pick this topic up again for it is of great urgency as events are getting very near that will require you to be balanced and prepared spiritually. Time is running out, and although God is a just and fair God, and there are second chances, but not on this planet, and not in this lifetime. Feel the power of the spirit forces around you, there are many that want to assist you, but you need to also be aware that there are also beings that want to slow you down, that don’t want you to succeed and ascend into a higher form of consciousness. Connect with the forces of the light, and you have strong allies, the strongest you can ever have, because the light is the strongest force in the creation. My dear friends, the time has come to realize that you are spirit in a spirit world, incarnated on a planet named earth to make human experiences, to learn through these experiences thus allowing your vibrational level to rise so that you can transform and ascend into a higher form of consciousness. Be blessed. Amen. Amen. Amen.


Lesson 11: Your Soul’s Guidance

by archangel Zadkiel

I greet you, my dearest friends! The time has come to introduce to you a new concept of perceiving your environment and your life on this earth. Until now, you have been taught by experience, your parents and by schools, by the effects on you the events around you had. Now is the time to learn to let your soul be your teacher. Your soul has been teaching you all along anyway, but now is the time to realize this and be more open to this idea, thus allowing yourself to be in the hands of the true Self, and no longer in the hands of the mind which reacts only upon the experiences it accepted of this lifetime. Many are still fighting the guidance of their own soul, and have to keep being thrown into the right direction, which is why some keep trying the same thing over and over again, which is not right for them, and they keep failing and will continue to do so until they accept what they chose before coming to this planet and where their soul keeps trying to guide them to. Their soul, together with their spirit guide, keep working hard to make sure they get to go on the pre-selected path which is the right path for them at this time. Trying to fight this, is not only futile, but will only cause disruption and failure. Yes, my dear friends, you are free, you have the right to decide, but your mind often makes decisions that your own soul does not agree with. You were absolutely free when you decided to accept this incarnation, you even asked for this, and now your soul makes sure that you do not get too far off the path you chose, simply because of some decisions your mind wants to make, often out of fear. Learn to observe what life is trying to tell you, learn to observe all the signs that you have learned to ignore, there are many signs in your world around you as well as from within your body, even the physical body. Many ailments are the result of your refusal to follow your soul’s decisions. Other bodily symptoms are symbols and signs, trying to show you the way. Learn to see these symbols, accept them as such – you will also see that many can instantly disappear once you accept them in love – and make an effort to understand the significance and meaning. Talk to your spirit guide in moments of inner calmness, and you shall receive guidance and understanding. Do not expect everything to be explained in detail, it is often a process that takes time and patience. Trust your guide, and trust your soul, no one else knows you as well, and be aware that your soul is your true self and has the desire to grow spiritually and has carefully chosen the experiences desired for this lifetime, for the best spiritual advances possible. If you hesitate or even fight to fulfill what you have chosen, you cannot succeed in your life and you will either eventually begin to fulfill your tasks because you finally accept what you had chosen, or you may even have to terminate the current incarnation. My dearest friends, I do not say these words to cause fear, if you read this, you must be at least willing to accept, and need confirmation and reminders until you accept your life and learn to use it for the greatest purpose, which is to learn from your experiences for growing spiritually. Sometimes, these things need to be discussed in all clarity and detail, more blunt maybe than some wish to receive, but I am bringing you this out of love, to show you the right way. It is up to you if you want to follow me, or go a different way. I know that sooner or later you will find your path. May you be blessed and follow your heart and soul. Greetings to you, my dearest friends. Amen. Amen. Amen.


Lesson 10: What Can We Do?

by archangel Zadkiel

Greetings, my dearest friends! To many of you, a new year has begun, a strange year it is indeed as you approach what you call a new millennium. The coming two years, 1999 and 2000, are the cornerstone to the new age that many have been talking about. Many of you will face challenges that you have not even considered to be a possibility, which will be part of a great cleansing process to which the entire planet will be subjected to. However, you may want to know what you can do to prepare yourself so that these challenges can be met as easily as possible. My dear friends, in this message I want to point out what can be done by human beings incarnated on earth as a preparation.

First of all, as it was pointed out in the previous message, you would not be incarnated at this time if you were not prepared and a part of the global changes. You have gone through thousands of incarnations, waited patiently for this one to come. Now is the time, a major leap in earth’s energy level is beginning, you can do your part to keep your balance and “ride the wave” or stumble and have to wait for another great wave to come like this one – which would have to be done on another planet. Again at this point I need to point out that you should not fear the earth changes, as they are the beginning of a great new era, and this new beginning has been compared to giving birth – it is something wondrous, a miracle if you want, but nothing you should be scared of. Without birth, nothing new could come, and extinction would be certain. Most humans look forward to the event of birth, it is a joyful, yet often painful, moment. Accept the pain, and look forward to what comes out of this birth – a new age full of what you may call miracles and wonders. The next level will bring new tasks, but my dear friends, life will be quite different from what you are used to. Most of what you despise of earth life will be gone, I am talking about hunger and drought, hate and crime. To some, it may seem like paradise, however this is not quite accurate if you mean heaven. I am telling you all this because you should be joyous and be looking forward to the earth changes, as they are like going into labor for the new age. It is a great time you live in, free yourself from fear, let go of anxiety, enjoy the opportunity you have been given and make the best of it. That is why I want to give you some more advice on how to prepare. Well, my dear friends, what I have been talking about all along is part of this preparation, what Emanuel brought to you in his “Path of Light” is part of it, as well as all the other information and insight that we have brought. But now is the time to concentrate on some essential elements that you need to consider if you desire to be well prepared for this beginning important phase of transition.

First of all, it would be advisable to change your attitude towards your own life and your position in it. You need to become aware, that you are an eternal soul, which seeks to make experiences to learn in order to grow. This growth is about to make a leap, you can pass on to the next level as if you pass your final exams of one grade so you can step up to the next grade in this school of life, whose classroom “earth” you are all attending class at. Become aware, that you are this soul, which wants to learn, and that is why you are encountering problems in your life – at this time, probably increasingly more than ever before in your lifetime. However, it also needs to be realized that these problems are not there to give you trouble and hinder you, they are the key to your success. This, again, is like your schools for children – you need to get your problems and learn by solving them. If you try to avoid these problems, they pile up and you will need to do extra time, and in some cases, you may need to “repeat a grade”. Once you realize the true meaning of all the problems around you, this enables you to accept the challenges of life, resolve your problems instead of trying to avoid them, and this is a major step. Also, it would be wise to let go of getting too much emotionally involved with your problems, they are not worth the extra energy. This does not mean you should suppress your emotions, but it may be good to work on the right amount of emotion for each of your situations. At times, it is important to remind yourself of the big picture, that life is like a school we are all attending, and you are simply playing a role on this planet using the mask of the physical body which you can see when you look in the mirror. But just like that mirror image is not really you, neither is the physical body. It is simply the vehicle you need to accomplish the task your soul needs to fulfill. Now is also the time to quit going the easy path, trying to avoid problems at any cost. As I said, problems are the key to learning and learning is what you are here for. As Emanuel already said in “The Path Of Light”, the underlying key lesson to all human souls is to learn unconditional love. You can get closer to this goal by accepting your life, by accepting your problems and challenges, by letting go of hate and fear, sadness and anger. Regular use of the triple light protection helps to connect yourself with life and your environment in love and light, allowing your sense of unconditional love to grow. And last but not least, be patient with yourself. Your soul has been patient with you, as you went through thousands of incarnations to get to where you are now. You had your share of setbacks, but even setbacks bring a new lesson learned and therefore are not in vain. Now be patient with yourself, but persistent. Become aware of the spirit friends on your side, your spirit guide and your guardian angel, although you may not be able to see nor hear them, in moments of silence you can learn to hear their voices of wisdom and wonderful advice. Greetings to you all, my dear friends, and fear not, you are not alone in your struggle, God is fair and just and has provided for your guidance. Be blessed and be in peace. Greetings. Amen. Amen. Amen.


Lesson 4: Finding out your life’s lessons and tasks

by archangel Zadkiel

Greetings, my dear friends! Here I would like to continue where we left off in the last lesson. I gave you an exercise that you can use to awaken your memories of what you have experienced in former lifetimes. Now I want to give you the opportunity, to use a similar exercise to find out more about the big lessons and tasks for this lifetime.

As with the last exercise, you begin with a preparation as mentioned before using the triple light protection (Emmanuel Chapter 4.1) and enter the higher realms through the tunnel of light. On the other side, you find yourself deep in a forest. Enjoy the wonderful nature that surrounds you, feel connected with the trees and other plants, and the animals. There is a path, follow it, and you come to a big school house, in the middle of the forest. You walk up the stairs to the entrance, enter the building, and meet a teacher in the entry hall. He (or “she”, I’ll use “he” for now but this is irrelevant) takes you to a classroom – your classroom – and you ask him if he could write your current life’s main tasks and lessons on the board. If he doesn’t, ask why – and be patient, there may be a good reason why. If he does, pay great attention to the details. Some may receive a symbol instead of a written statement, memorize this symbol, and meditate on it another time, observing the thoughts and images that come to mind. After you read the board, feel free to ask more questions – however, be patient, many things have to develop over time and you will more than likely not be able to get all your answers regarding your lessons and tasks answered, but you are probably able to get another step closer each time you use this exercise. Again, don’t try to force anything, instead, allow things to happen, and be very observant.


Lesson 3: Exercise to awaken past life memories

by archangel Zadkiel

Greetings to you, my dear friends! This time, let us get closer to getting in touch with your own inner memories, which are not only memories of all that happened in this lifetime, but also memories of who you are, what your tasks are in this lifetime, and which memories of former lifetimes are of interest to the current one. This, my dear friends, is not something to be afraid of, for what you have experienced is part of you just as much as who you are and what you had planned for this lifetime.

You need to begin by focusing on the fact that you are spirit, that you are part of the spirit world, that you are part of this wonderful creation, that this being-a-part connects you to everything that exists. The more you learn to be aware of this, the closer you get to your goal – not just your hidden memories. I need to advise you, that at times it may become frustrating to you, when you try to remember things of the past, but this is part of the process and could be seen as a test of your willpower as well as your endurance. There are many little and big tests in the journey of a soul, having enough patience to go through with this exercise without giving up half way through – or before even starting – is one of these challenges. As you become slowly aware that you are spirit, you will more and more regain consciousness of the abilities that lie within you. There are many more abilities that are within you than simply remembering who you are and what happened in former lives, but this is one good starting point. You need to take this focusing on that you are spirit, part of a spirit world, seriously, otherwise the following exercise will have no effect on you. Also, a prerequisite is that you practice love and light exercises as described by our friend and brother Emanuel at a different place in this area of information, a good way would be to follow his advice on the triple light protection. You need to do these light exercises at least on a daily basis for several weeks, possibly months, before the following exercise may give you anything useful.

This exercise that I can recommend for reawakening your memories should begin with the before mentioned triple light protection. You then form a tunnel of light in front of you, walk through it, and find yourself at a lake. You walk into the lake – don’t worry about drowning, souls don’t breathe – and at the bottom of the lake you can see a big library that was hidden there, invisible and apparently inaccessible before you dared to step into the water. You go into the beautiful library, ask the librarian to hand you the book which you wrote that is most important to you at this time. He will hand it to you, and you open it up and begin to read – images may come to you, allow this to happen, immerse yourself for a while into that what happens, what you can observe, but concentrate on observing – this is a key in learning more about yourself and understanding your past. Do not be surprised if you look different – that is normal. When you feel you have seen enough – do not take on too much at once, your mind needs time to adapt and process – return the book to the librarian, return to shore, walk back through the tunnel of light into your earthly reality of this lifetime. I recommend you do this exercise about once a week, more often does not do any harm, but do not overdo this because it is a process to allow yourself and your mind to adapt to the new situation of being able to access memories this way. If for some reason you do not see anything in the book, receive no images, sounds, or thoughts, be patient and keep trying about once a week. Please remember that the purpose of this exercise is not to put any pressure on you, so do not put any on yourself. Let go of wanting to know about your past – this can cause a blockage that hinders you from accessing the memories. Be free, be open, let go of fear and wanting, simply allow things to happen. You will be guided towards your deepest goals.

This is an exercise to remember past events, from former lives, possibly from this life, and I am going to give you another exercise soon to remember who you are and what your tasks are. Those are harder to access, which is why I gave you this one first. Do not take past live memories too serious – they are not as important as some think, but some memories are great help in understanding your current situation. There may be other exercises, but this is an easy and safe way. Allow yourself to be guided by your spirit guide, and you will find what you need. Until next time, Greetings to you, my dear friends! Amen, Amen, Amen.


Lesson 2: Past Life Memories

by archangel Zadkiel

Greetings, my dear friends! As you may by now be aware of, each human soul goes through many lifetimes. The journey of each soul is like a book that is being written – each lifetime is a new page, a new beginning. These pages get filled more in some lifetimes, less in others – but each lifetime means a new page, a new beginning, thus giving a new start. During most lifetimes at this level of development most of mankind stands at, most humans do not remember their previous lives, to allow them this new beginning. When the soul reaches a certain point of development, and becomes aware of the fact that there is more than one life to a human soul, one often become curious and want to know all about the previous lives, for various reasons. Some are simply curious, some want proof and want to see if for what they find out about their former lives evidence can be found, yet others hope to find out that they were a well-know person in a former life – in order to find self-worth in the past for the present, which, of course, would be an illusion – one more reason, why most humans cannot remember former lives; what really is important, is to live this present lifetime to the fullest. You have a role to play, the role of the person you see in the mirror – just a role, but nevertheless, it is important that you fulfill your tasks for this lifetime, which is why you have chosen this role. Like an actor cannot keep thinking about previous roles that he or she may have played, it is important to draw from the energy within and concentrate on the current situation. This is why I see past life regressions as unnecessary, in some cases even dangerous – memories of trauma can cause serious confusion or even depression. What if you found out you were a murderer, a victim of a cruel crime, or died a horrible death? In actuality, most humans have such experiences somewhere in their past – this is not something you need to know or remember, souls choose certain experiences because they are part of the plan – but if someone remembers such events and is not prepared for such memories, this could have devastating effects. In a recent weekly address, Emanuel talked about this, but this is an important issue, as many that begin their more active spiritual path at these times of change are not aware of the risks involved when exploring various paths, like past life regression. I am not generally condemning past life regression, but want to caution you. Actually, I am going to even tell you how you yourself can explore your past – in a safe way that is right for your soul. You may have to be more patient, but that is the price for being safe and progressing at the right speed for yourself. As there can be many times when knowledge of former lifetimes can play an important role in your life, for understanding your current situation, understanding problems with others, understanding fears and phobias, it is a wise idea to deal with this subject in a careful way. Be blessed. Greetings to you, my dear friends, Amen, Amen, Amen.


Lesson 1: Fate & Problems In Life

by archangel Zadkiel

Greetings, my dear friends! You have been preparing for the changes in yourself for many lifetimes, and now that the earth changes are upon, it is the time to implement that what you have been preparing for. It is a change in your consciousness state, a change in your awareness, that will bring you insights and a broader view. There has been much talk about earth changes, but little has been said about that what really concerns you, which are the transformations that many humans will be going through as earth passes into the new age, into the new dimension. It has been said before, that these earth changes are an opportunity for human souls to accomplish unimaginable tasks, which is why you see so many problems for many good souls today, they are going through times of hardship to work off karma, to make the experiences they still need to make, to be able to achieve a different, higher state of consciousness. Those that believe in God often do not understand why there are so many different “fates” for the people on earth, why some seem to have an easy life, while others have an extremely hard one. However, God is fair and just, even if this is not obvious to the human eye, for most humans cannot see what happened before this lifetime. Those that are suffering may have chosen this way for various reasons, for working off old karma, for showing others to appreciate their life, or for giving some the opportunity to show love and charity. Often, it is a combination of all such reasons, and some individuals may have other reasons, but you can see the general idea behind hardships in life. To some point, you all have chosen a life that is not easy – an “easy life” would not be very helpful to the development of the soul, for you can only learn if you come across some obstacles and problems that you need to work on so you can learn from the experiences you make while working on these problems. Be brave and tackle your problems – they are the gateway to learning, and learning is the gateway to spiritual growth, which in turn leads to ascension. Look forward to all these problems, and when you encounter them, observe them with joy in your heart, as they give you an opportunity to grow. This is not an easy exercise, but as we said, life is not always easy, but the more you change your attitude towards life’s problems, the easier it will be. If you resist to these processes, you will slow down and carry an even heavier burden. Free yourself from your inner resistance, from your apathy and laziness – strive forward into a brighter future, as ascension awaits those that dare to be free of fear and resistance. Enjoy the blessings that come to you from the flocks of angles that are on earth to help mankind, and you, be in peace and harmony! Greetings, Amen. Amen. Amen.


Outline

by archangel Zadkiel

Greetings, my dear friends on this earth plane! So, you have decided to embark on a voyage of your soul. Since you are reading this, you must have decided to play a more active role in your life and fate. Your soul has already been on a long voyage, through many lifetimes. Most humans are unaware of these former lifetimes. However, many believe that there is more to life than this one lifetime, Christians believe in an afterlife in heaven or hell, while other religions are aware of the cycle of lives, the many lifetimes a human soul normally goes through.

It is not necessary for you to know what happened in all your previous lifetimes, but there are ways for you to get closer to your soul and thereby get closer to your memories of those lives. This can be helpful in understanding your current life, understand not just which tasks you have chosen, but also why. This remembering is one of the exercises we will be dealing with in future lessons of the Inner Circle.

As you may be curios as to what else may come your way if you keep reading the Inner Circle, let me give you a small outline. The main reason for creating this section was that not all humans who stumble upon the Spiritual Connection are prepared for the material presented in the Inner Circle, and may read material their mind is not prepared for at that time. This may turn them away when the teachings appear to be too far from what they call reality, while their soul may have just begun to open up the mind to accept spirituality. That is a fragile state when the human being can be easily mislead. To avoid confusion and overexposure, this section had to be secured to be accessible only to those that decided to accept spirituality or at least to be open enough to make the next step. This is not to be seen as being judgmental – nobody is being judged nor anyone being rejected because of their level of “spiritual development” since everyone is striving to get ahead, there really are no significant differences. That some have learned more than others in certain areas is no reason to judge. Others may have learned more in other areas.

The next lessons of the Inner Circle will be dealing with

  • reincarnation and the memories thereof
  • how to experience unconditional love
  • keys to ascension
  • earth changes and their impact on humanity and your spiritual development

Most of these points have been mentioned in other areas of this site, but the goal of Inner Circle is to go deeper into the subject, provide more details, and give additional information.

Blessings to you, my dear friends!
