Archangel Raphael: enlightenment does not mean you are blind to the troubles or ugliness around you. It means you see it clearly and find no reason to be personally upset by it. For many of you, this seems an impossibility, to see darkness and suffering and not suffer yourselves, or be “taken down” by it. But Beloved Ones, who can you help others to raise themselves out of a hole in the ground if you jump in with them?
Archangel Raphael: We Are Paradise Bound
It is a great pleasure for me to speak with you while we enjoy the gentle breezes and the rich aroma of good coffee floating on the air. Of course, we do not drink coffee, but we do appreciate the warm and welcoming smells of coffee and homemade bread as it wafts from your kitchen. It reminds us of our former lifetimes here on Earth, and the simple pleasures which are abundant, all around you. I am here to encourage you to find the moments, and eventually the state of peace which will allow you to ascend to higher dimensions in your body, as we have planned.
Yes, Dear Ones, it is the state of peace, inside and out, which is required for you to raise your vibrations. There can be no worry or fear, no doubt or resentment to cloud your sights, no feelings of self-doubt or unworthiness, inferiority or superiority. No single group will be singled out for success, other than those who have learned to live at peace with themselves and with those around them. Any impulse toward aggressiveness or revenge will mask your beacon of Light and hold you back. We wish to help you now to learn what elevating your vibrations really means.
First, enlightenment does not mean you are blind to the troubles or ugliness around you. It means you see it clearly and find no reason to be personally upset by it. For many of you, this seems an impossibility, to see darkness and suffering and not suffer yourselves, or be “taken down” by it. But Beloved Ones, who can you help others to raise themselves out of a hole in the ground if you jump in with them? How will you teach patience, wisdom and harmony if you are impatient and frustrated? No matter how logical or “reality based” your thinking might be, please reconsider.
This journey you embarked on, to wear the suit of a human body, is what you might call a double-edged sword. On the one hand, you are told you are made in the image of God, which you are, but we must now make it clear that there are facets to this phenomenon which you may not see completely.
You, the soul that you are, are made in the image of God, and you go on eternally, experiencing various lifetimes, adventures, and exploits, together with your soul mates and fellow travelers of the Cosmos. One of those adventures, a favorite among Masters who wish to evolve along their own soul path and who wish to help others do the same, is to incarnate on Earth in a human form. The human form is especially treasured because it is an amalgam of the DNA of many races, and is the cooperative attempt to create a form – a relatively solid receptacle through which we can all experience life in lower dimensions.
This special form which is humankind is truly the closest form which is capable of expressing our etheric soul qualities. Now, this is not to say that anger and fear, for instance, is a reflection of how we feel in higher dimensions. Not at all. As we work our way up the spiritual ladder above the 5th dimension, where we all came from before this life, to our destiny which is unity with Creator, we experience only the various shades of love. However, as we move dimensionally higher, the color and depth of Light and Love becomes more and more intense.
And so, we come to practice here in the lower dimensions in this 3-dimensional version of a human body for the most difficult challenges of all – the experience of duality. Here we feel the struggle between Light and Dark, good and evil, you might call it, which is only possible in the lower dimensions where there is also the illusion of separation from God. Our challenge here is to find our way back to Unity, to see that evil is only a construct we designed to create the house of mirrors filled with ghouls and monsters which are here to push us to the limit. We have been given the free will choice to give up, turn to the darkness, or return in Faith and Love to the God who has never abandoned us, but has stood by allowing us the opportunity to feel our own strength.
Each soul came here with this difficult project in mind. It is the bottom line. Will you choose to see the darkness for what it is – the holographic illusion we came here to play out? Or will you curse the darkness, blame God, or Fate, or someone else for the losing game you feel trapped within? It is a tricky balancing act, to see the illusion for what it is, and still do your best to stay in the game while you help others to awaken all around you. This is the challenge a Master takes on, courageously daring to plunge into the deep and murky waters without a life raft, firm in the faith that all is well, even when the sensations and physical evidence seem the opposite.
You are here first and foremost to learn, to teach and to grow. By meeting the challenges you encounter with humor, goodwill and faith in your fellow humans and the Guides and angels who are with you, you rise above the illusion, shake off the fear and anxiety, and restore yourself to the seat of honor which is your due. God is there, your loving supporter, your cheering section and your greatest fan.
So you see, this is the gradual awakening you are taking part in now. First, you began to read and listen to the messages from us which helped you to feel connected while you were still behind the thick Veil. Then gradually you began to learn that you manifest what you think about – the Universal Law of Attraction, and then you began to feel the hint of understanding that this entire project, which we have called the Lucifer project, for he was the one who volunteered to lead in the creation of the world of duality and illusion you are now experiencing.
Along with the departure of the Reptilian race, the Lucifer Project ended, and Lucifer was welcomed home to the arms of God. It was decided in the Council of Heaven that the project we had designed was too risky, too weighted in favor of the dark, because of the invading species who came to take over the planet and eventually to destroy her. It was necessary for us to step in, in a limited way, to prevent the Armageddon which was a part of the dark timeline. You see, the duality was an illusion, but Mother Earth herself, and you in your human bodies are real. We did not wish to see all of you and your precious Mother destroyed.
Here we have opened another topic for you to ponder. Many seers and spiritual leaders have told you “it is all an illusion.” This is not true. Only the internal rules of the game are the illusory creation. By “game” I do not mean to imply it is a whimsical process. Not at all. The moves you make, the decisions you choose, and the lessons you learn as a result of playing the Game of Life on Planet Earth in the 3rd and 4th dimension are true. Your growth and your struggle to come back to the Light are real. This is a challenge you will remember for the rest of your soul eternity.
Please understand, Beloved Ones, it has been an honorable effort – this voyage into the unknown. Like all intrepid explorers, you have traveled far from “home” and have just now begun to see the Light along your pathway back. We hold the lantern for you, whisper in your ear, celebrate every obstacle surmounted and every hesitation overcome. Each time you are challenged and you manage to keep your balance, hold on to your integrity and maintain your loving attitude it is a mark of your character and your growing strength. We understand there may be missteps, confusion and strong feelings that sometimes “get you down.” When you pick yourself up, brush yourself off and go on, that is a triumph.
You see, it is a game you cannot lose, because as long as you play out your part as one of the team who are here to learn, you are making a precious contribution to the completion of the project. Even those who have come here as the Dark Hats – the ones whose job it is to create the dilemmas and sometimes tortuous challenges you have faced – even they are part of the learning/teaching team. It is time now for them to awaken to understand that they were not given real power, and the right to control others.
They too are actors in what I referred to as the internal illusion – the game within the game. Some of them have become drunk with the feelings of power, and have been addicted to their positions of control over others, especially when it meant they could possibly succeed at owning all the resources and wealth on the planet. Some have become addicted to their delusions of power and grandeur, as they see it, but you see, this is only a more extreme version of the position you all find yourselves in now.
They too will awaken to realize they have played a part in a greater learning experience for the benefit of all humankind, or as you might see it, for all the souls who came to wear the human uniform in this historic time. When they do awaken, they will need your help to bring them through the shame and guilt they will feel initially, when they first discover how destructive and malevolent their actions have been. They truly do not feel that when they are in the middle of it; they feel entitled to behave the way they do. They even feel that what they are doing, by controlling others, is really for their own good.
Polish up your forgiveness tools, Dear Ones. You will be needing them in the coming days and months, for this awakening will be difficult for those who were the “perpetrators” as it is for the “victims.” Read, if you will, the original psychological studies by Phillip Zimbardo and Stanley Milgram where they found that some who were put in charge over “prisoners” or “test subjects” by those in authority did horrific things to their fellow humans when they were given license to do so. These researchers intuitively recreated the illusion you are operating within now, and showed the extremes of which everyone is capable when given complete free will and encouragement to turn toward the dark.
And so, here you are, at the close of this Lucifer Project – the drama which ran for thousands of years in all the theaters, all the households and offices and halls of government. Now, it is done. You are being invited to clear the decks, restore the peace, and begin anew to create the Heaven on Earth you now have the empathy, compassion and wisdom to build together.
Raise your flag of peace; write your hymn to the glory of God, and take the hand of the one at your side. Walk together, Beloved Children of God, into the real, live sunset which marks the end of an era and the beginning of a brand new life on Planet Earth.
We love you without end, for there is no end. There is only now, and the rising energies of the great Central Sun, sent to awaken and strengthen you in your new version of the human body. You are being prepared now to adapt and elevate yourselves using the higher energies. Open your hearts and your minds to welcome and align with the higher vibrations, for they are the richer, lighter atmosphere of your new Paradise on Earth, and it is up to you how high and how far you wish to go.
I am your messenger, your mentor and friend, the one you know as Archangel Raphael.
