TAUGHT BY THE ANGELS:  WHAT THEY HAVE TO SAY ABOUT AMERICA

 Lorna Byrne

Lorna Byrne    http://www.lornabyrne.com/

 In 1955, Lorna Byrne was born in Dublin, Ireland to a poor family. She has seen and communicated with angels since she was a baby.  Due to her lack of interest in the physical world, she was diagnosed “mentally retarded.”  She was, in fact, dyslexic and could hardly read.

Lorna has always seen angels just as you and I see another human being.  As she looks out over an audience, she can see each individual’s guardian angel standing behind her/him as clearly as she sees the human being.

Lorna had great difficulty learning at school.  The angels taught her everything she knows.  She has not been influenced by reading books (which she can do only with difficulty); mainstream would consider Lorna uneducated.    

 So when we listen to Lorna, we are listening to a woman who was raised by the angels, taught by the angels, and guided by the angels. 

Lorna is the author of three international best seller books, including Angels in My Hair, Stairways to Heaven, and A Message of Hope From the Angels.  She lives in Ireland.

I am especially interested in what the angels have told Lorna in the two YouTubes below.   AMERICANS, THE WORLD IS LOOKING TO US TO LEAD THE WAY TO A NEW WORLD!

Because a question has been raised in this video comment section about angels needing wings, I am including paintings/photos of angels. They do not need wings to fly; instead, the wing-like formations are a part of their energy field.

A Rose Angel

“Rose angels” may be thought of as incarnations of divine wisdom and love, qualities that bring them into intimate contact with the Immortal Selves of Egos [Higher Selves] of humanity. Association with such beings is indeed a privilege and their cooperation in the service of humanity can be of greatest value.” Rose is the color vibration of Love.

OPEN OUR HEART’S VISION TO THE LOVING NEW WORLD

GOD’S ANGELS CAME FOR ME

GOD’S ANGELS CAME FOR ME

 Angel staircase

A friend of my sister’s asked her to write a poem to be included in the bulletin for her husband’s recent Celebration of Life.  She also wanted a poem for a Grandfather.  I post these poems and dedicate them to all whose spouse and grandfather have recently returned to spirit.

God’s Angels Came for Me

God’s Angels came for me tonight…

My Soul they lifted up…

Up toward the light…

With untold joy, I entered in…

My Savior’s opened arms…

The peace…the love..the joy,

No place on earth can know…

With God this moment on…

No pain…no fear…no grief

Can ever enter in…

The long path of life we walked…

Now I stand watch…waiting in God’s garden

to behold your coming…together once again.

 My Grandfather…

The boat is rocking in rhythm with the waves…

My line and hook float over the water…

A sudden pull…

The reel begins to spin…

All are alert as the fish breaks the surface…

Suddenly I am a young boy…

My Grandfather by my side…

Strong hands guiding me as I reel in my first catch!

Safety first when you remove the hook, he cautions…

Move your hand down against the scales…they are sharp you see.

Placing my prize on ice…I am hooked for life…

The sea and me.

Looking back…the days of patient teaching…

My Grandfather’s words ring still…

Study hard my Son…keep your record clean…

Show respect…stand tall, be a man…

Don’t forget to laugh…and above all…

Love your God.

My grandfather…my guide through life…

CHANNELING FROM ARCHANGEL METATRON PRESENTED TO THE UNITED NATIONS S.E.A,T.

CHANNELING FROM ARCHANGEL METATRON PRESENTED TO THE UNITED NATIONS S.E.A.T. ON 8/19/2011

Earth-Keeper – http://www.earth-keeper.com/

On the tenth anniversary of the 9-11 , May we remember that :

 ” War will never be  ended by hating war …. rather will war be ended by loving peace. That which is your focus is that which you will create. “

Our United Nations Experience

It was an auspicious day when we arrived in New York City  to bring the message & wisdom of Archangel Metatron to the United Nations group. In little over a week, we would be in Britain, and New York would be shaken by a rare earthquake and washed in the winds of a hurricane. But August 19th was a magnificent summer day, resplendent with blue skies and a golden beaming sun.

The UN Staff had de-briefed us on security detail and entry protocol. We were ready.

This was not our standard fashion of presenting Metatron, and the unique energy of the honor and event filled us with anticipation.

We had been given permission to bring a few guests, and were joined by Linda Roebuck, Angie Carter, Lilia Phelps, Vikki Lazaro, Mary Adele, Barbara Longue, Rebecca Sellers, Sue Anne Armstrong  and Sibtain Rahim.

We were met outside the UN complex and greeted graciously by UN SEAT staff, and  presented with a stunning arrangement of flowers. We then were escorted through  the security facilities where we needed to pass through metal detectors, under the thorough gaze of uniformed United Nations security officers.

Anne and I were excited and humbled with the honor of this invitation, and amazed at how Archangel Metatron had somehow orchestrated such a marvelous opportunity as this. Anne and I paused for a moment and understood that we were representing Earth-Keepers  around the globe in perhaps the only venue that would ever enable & allow governments to speak together of such things as spiritual enlightenment and the quantum physics of multi-dimensionality. And Metatron is about the science of Spirit, the physics of metaphysics.

The moment was very significant to us both. It had been a long journey, and not always an easy one.  Although I had recently retired in 2009  from 33 years as a professional geological-Engineer, metaphysics has always been my passion, and I had studied intensely for  35 years.  I began channeling Metatron in 2007, and he had foretold of this day, and it’s manifestation had an enormous effect on both of us.

We passed the Security Council chambers and the large popular General Assembly meeting room.

Scheduled to begin at precisely 1:15 , we were to end within 90 minutes. It was a rigid agenda, with much to cover in a short span of time. The Metatronic teachings were presented, and as time approached for our ending channel,  our allotment was extended. We remained 3 hours and finished with a channel. We were told this was the longest session the S.E.A.T had ever allowed. As ‘chance’ would have it, the meeting scheduled to take place in our conference room after our 90 minutes, had been rescheduled, but then again there are no accidents…only Cosmic Winks!

Both Anne and I were feeling the powerful & beautiful presence of the Metatronic entourage, of Spirit in a way that we had not previously experienced. Something very profound was happening, and it felt right.

This was in many ways the “confirmation” that Metatron  had told us about so many times.  Somehow this day at the UN helped me gain greater understanding in the global acceptance of what we do, and I am humbled and deeply thankful for that.

As we ended the meeting, several people from Russia and the Ukraine approached and ask me to sign their books. I was surprised to see for the first time copies of one of Metatron’s books in Russian. It had been published in the Ukraine the year prior, and was apparently responsible for igniting the interest, and triggering the invitation of Earth-Keeper and  Metatron to the UN, as the story was told to us. We were invited to Russia to offer live teachings in Moscow.

With Humility, Gratitude & Love,

James Tyberonn

 The below live channelling was presented at the United Nations facility in New York City to the UN Society for Enlightenment and Transformation (S.E.A.T) on August 19th , 2011 

 To assist the reader, this channel has been re-channeled [by Tyberonn and Archangel Metatron] and expanded, in order to provide an even clearer understanding. Often what takes place ‘ live ‘ has implied energy within it, which carries deep communication that the printed page does not. So enjoy this enhanced message given recently in New York City at the United Nations.

Metatron Address to the United Nations – The Nation of Humanity

 Archangel Metatron Channel via James Tyberonn

Greetings ! I am Metatron, Lord of Light, and I embrace you

with love, unconditional love.

 

And so this wonderful day we gather at the United Nations. We pause to

fill the room with the Cosmic Light of Unconditional Love. And we tell

you it is only Unconditional Love that will unite nations of your beloved

Earth.

 

We encircle each and every one of you with a nurturing energy and with

the field of self empowerment, for each of you are truly Masters on your

path of Ascension. It is our purpose to offer you inspiration and clarity,

but indeed it is once and always requisite that YOU, as a sacred and

sovereign BEING, discern this and any such ‘channeled’ messages.

 

And so it is 2011, the cusp of your heralded Ascension. And so we gently

ask all of you to look at the world around you for just a moment.  What do you see?

 

Your media outlooks are reporting war, famine, disasters and economic collapse. . And what is broadcast is what is seen in 3d.  It is oft full of gloom and doom, is it not?

 

But we tell you there is a new sun dawning, and it is indeed the sun of

change. It brings the light of the magnificent New Earth.  And Dear Ones,

we do mean magnificent.

 

And yes, we know that some of you are thinking, “The Angels are viewing

the world in rose colored glasses. Their perspective is a Polly-Anna wash.”

 

There have always been the nay-sayers on the planet, those who predict

gloom and doom and warnings of fear. And these serve a purpose in

duality, and certainly a quick glance around the globe would seem to

justify their stance.  But we tell you it is old energy. And it is not the role

of Spirit to ever tell you to give up hope, or to let go of your free will.  Our message is to tell you of your Divinity, and to tell you as a matter of fact,

as a point of truth that the planet and indeed humanity will Ascend….and

are absolutely on tract for that to happen. Period.

 

S.E.A.T.

 

Now, we will speak this day at the United Nations in the same vernacular

that we speak to all seekers, to all aware audiences. We recognize those of

you within the Society for Enlightenment & Transformation as members

of the ‘Transformational Team’. We know you very well, and we honor you

for the roles you are playing in this organization.

 

The Beginning… Not the End

 

So many are asking what really will happen in 2012. The doomsday

profits are especially in high gear on this topic, are they not? Some of your speculators are on particularly fertile ground in this arena, generating fear

followings around collisions of comets, asteroids, cataclysmic polar

reversals and economic collapse.

 

Dear Ones, we tell you again the Ascension will occur, and humanity have

made it so. It is time to let go of old energy, of FEAR. And those of you in

this room today must be leaders by example in this process.

 

Masters, planetary changes will occur, but they are appropriate, and the

global cataclysm that some seers have predicted will NOT happen. The

planet will Ascend, and humanity will be in tow. In your higher

consciousness, that level above fear, not only are you aware of this…you

scripted it. And so we say, ‘Well Done!”

 

Now, be aware, there will indeed be the cleansing of the planet, the up

shifting of frequency, but it will be on a regional level, and it is for the

up-shift, for the higher good. We assure you that were it not for the

regional quakes, shakes, winds and waves, devastating as they are, the

larger one would inevitably have to take place.  And that will not occur

precisely because of the gradual shifting. It makes sense, does it not?

 

Letting Go Of Old Energy

 

Dear Ones, we tell you again the Ascension will occur, and humanity have

made it so. It is time to let go of old energy, of FEAR.

The fear is deeply programmed, but it is a repeating recording. So many of

your religions are rife with embedding of fear-control dogma, warnings

and restrictions. They program you with erroneous concepts of ‘original

sin’, poverty vows and focus on what not to do. Their fear based controls

have underpinnings of punishment for violators, creating group thought

forms to cage you in. This encourages fanaticism and zealotry. It spawns

self-righteousness and threats of retribution: our way or else. Its old

energy, its fear. Masters, you can never return to states of lesser

awareness, life is expansion.

With the New Earth comes the greater role in co-creation of the reality

around you. But that is a responsibility that will enfold through love, not

 

dread.

 

While you are indeed accountable for your actions, that accountability is

to SELF. You are a sovereign spark of the Divine.

 

Greater Access to  Creatorship

 

So what will happen in 2012? The short answer is that greater access to

your divine creativity will occur . The Earth will amplify into 12

dimensions, and by having access to those crystalline fields, you employ

greater ability to responsibly create.

 

 

As you enter the Ascension, the Crystalline Grid replaces the magnetic

grid that has dominated Earth’s ebb & flow for eons. As a result 3rd

dimensional polarity is optimally constricted within a more stabilized

energy-matrix.

 

 

What does that mean Metatron, you ask? It means that the arc-swing of

duality will gradually lessen. And it is a gradual process, it will happen on

time-release.

 

And we tell you that it has already begun. That is precisely why the old energy hold-outs are kicking hard. They are drawn out of the shadow,

into the crucible for all to see. As the light grows brighter, the bugs will be attracted to it. But events can do longer be skewed to hide the truth. Look

at what is happening in North Africa. Positive change is happening, and

much more is to come. That we assure you.

 

United Nations

 

And so we say to all of you gathered here, that the S.E.A.T. carries an

important role, perhaps more important that even those of you here

realize.

 

For you are the voice of those that cannot speak, and you have ears of

those that will listen. And many within the delegation will listen to you. So

do not be discouraged, for we recognize your importance, even if others

do not.

 

We tell you that at any given time half the world is in light and half the

world is in night; it is a world of polarity. We say to you that far more than

half of humanity are in consciousness shadow, yet to awaken to the light

of wisdom. We tell you that enlightenment occurs one heart at a time.

 

Therefore the light bearers among you must never lose faith, must ever

shine  brightly, for  even a small photon wave makes a transitional

illumination. So it is, so it must be with you here today.

 

1st World Nations

 

Now, there are some that will say that the prominent nations of what you

term the 1st world, the financially dominant and powerful, are more like corporations than countries. Corporations based on profits whose

residents are treated more as employees rather than citizens, especially

within the United States.

 

The gap between the ‘haves & have-nots’ is growing increasingly wider.

There are some that would say that the overall masses of the United States

are controlled and manipulated by media, intoxicated by quantity and

enslaved by debt. That sovereignty of the individual has been lost. Yet a

light still shines, and it is growing brighter.  A new generation across the

planet is coming into power, and they will quicken the change.

 

We tell you the time is nearing in which people will awaken to the

knowledge that it is not their encumbering debt that ties them to their

beliefs, rather their beliefs that shackle them to the burden of  debt.

 

The global economic system will change, but it will not free-fall & crash irreparably in planetary chaos.  To do so in utter chaos would not serve

what is to come. Rather it will be forced into change, drastic change, and positive elements will come forward to enable a better way.

 

The New Earth, the New Humans,  cannot and will not create its better

future by simply discarding its past. The change will come by learning

from the past and adjusting in the present, one step at a time. The new

Humans in the generation that is coming into power in the next decade

will choose a new pattern as a work in progress, and that economic shift

will occur.

 

The Power of Love

 

Masters, we have said before and we say again, that when the love of

power is replaced by the power of love, humanity will make a quantum

leap, but know that love without strength is incomplete. Love without

strength is not integral LOVE.

 

The changes the next 15 generations of humanity will make will create the flowering of the Ascension.

 

 

Change is occurring all around you, and it is not hard to see. Look at what has happened and is happening even now in North Africa and the Middle

East.  And look at how this shift began. It took strength; it took will; it

took courage.. . This is what we mean when we say integral LOVE requires strength, and that strength was an accomplishment of great will and

courage.

 

The Strength of Love

One courageous young man in Algeria decided enough was enough, and

he wasn’t going to take the injustice of tyrannical corruption anymore.  He extinguished his life with a flame and that fire burnt into the face of

tyranny. …and it is still burning.  A purifying crucible.  Look at what the

actions of one pure soul created, it spawned a revolution that is still

turning wheels and changing the world.

 

The energy of the planet is changing, and the ‘old guard’ of political power

over love simply cannot stand in the new paradigm.  Nations that rule by

brute force are falling, one tyrant, one corrupt government at a time.

And so we say to all governing bodies that unless change is brought from

the top, it will be summoned from the bottom, and mightily so.

 

A New Accounting 

Governments must be of the people and by the people. Governments must

care for the least of their populace, and not be templates of power play for

greed and cunning.  Heart and love is the new energy, this is the new way, this is the new accounting.

 

Governments cannot sit on thrones, and watch carelessly as their citizens struggle to survive. Nations of the first world are required to lift the third.

But not by military means, not by corporate manipulation. Through

sharing. Through understanding that a human life cannot be measured in

gold or derogated into ineffectuality by lack of it.

 

And what of the economy.  Look at what has happened in the past 5 years.

Dear Ones, Spirit is not short of cash. There is a means for all to have abundance.  There is requisite for each soul to have the opportunity of life.

And truth cannot be hidden, the shadow is being removed. Manipulation

is manipulation, and corruption is corruption even if it is for the short

term hidden in shadowed legalities and sham. The current economic

system will morph into a different one in time .

 

The Middle Path

The middle road between that termed capitalism and that termed

socialism will in time be realized, and in time prove the more tenable way.

Life is about gain, but gain is not always about monetary profit.

 

Yet learning to create is part of your puzzle on the Earth plane in duality,

and you have and will  in time experience every path along the road to the solution of sharing the planetary resources.

 

War & Conflict

As 2012 approaches, mankind is weary of war, but not enough are yet empowered to force their leaders to stop it.

In days past wars were formed in royal courts and political temples. In

current times wars are created  in executive military-corporate board

rooms.

 

The victims are but a brief mention in the evening news alongside stock

reports. Rarely do countries decide in free majority to go to war but they

blindly accept their leaders who declare them.  If you were to open the

curtains of your hidden history, you would know that most of your

planet’s conflicts of war do not occur in happenstance, rather were

strategically chosen. There are no enemies to defend against, rather

strategies designed to fill bank accounts and increase power reach.

 

War is an aspect of polarity that will only end as the earth and humanity

rise above it. Hating war will never end war. Loving peace will end war by creating peace.

 

Dear Ones, so much is changing, can you not see that a great shift is

taking place. Could this be what is called the Ascension?

 

And so what is this 2012 Ascension?  What will happen in 2012?

 

The Planetary Ascension

 

Dear Ones, for most of the planet, Dec 21st will come and go, and the

world will say nothing has changed.

 

If you are hearing these words in hopes that the final phrases of this

discussion will weave a conclusion to your liking, you will not be

disappointed.

 

But we tell you while the template of expansion occurs in 2012, the mass enlightenment of mankind will not follow for several centuries.  2012

simply gives you more tools to work with.

 

We of the Angelic realm are not here to solve your problems, rather to

encourage you on your path to solution.  And although  mankind will not

reach a critical mass of enlightenment on the EarthPlane for several more centuries, it is important to remain present and positive, because it will

occur, one day at a time, one heart at a time.

 

Each of you has an opportunity to be impeccable every day. The scenario

in which you recognize your own failings, your own conflict with

integrity, is the day you encompass Mastery, and indeed it is a journey.

Likewise the day you stand in your truth with willingness to recognize

another person’s truth, you encompass integrity. This truth then applies

to nations as well, it applies in macro and micro.

 

Spirit speaks of LOVE. Spirit does not attack. Every current religion on

your Earth has its truths and distortions. Discernment is the key. It is

requisite of you to decide what is true and what is not, based on heart and

NOT FEAR. No true sacred expression limits its truth, its beauty to one grouping.

 

Dear Ones choose to live free, choose to release worry and fear, and create

your well-being. Respect and Nurture one another, and embrace LOVE.

It is the science and frequency of God. It is the way that the Nation of

Humanity will UNITE.

 

I am Metatron and I share with you these TRUTHS. You are Beloved. 

 

 And so it is.

MEDITATIVE PRAYER

MEDITATIVE PRAYER

Nancy Detweiler, M.Ed., M. Div.

  Be still, and know that I am God.”  Psalm 46:10

        The Hebrew words in this verse can be translated in a variety of ways, all of which enhance its meaning.

                Cease from labor, and experience God.

                Sit still, and perceive God.

                Rest, and gain knowledge of God.

                Rest from labor, and find out about God.

Lamsa translates the Aramaic of the Peshitta to read:  Repent, and know that I am God.”

Meditative prayer is different from the traditional concept of prayer, which is usually considered “talking to God.”  Meditative prayer is attuning to God in order to view life through God’s eyes.  During this meditative prayer, we can affirm perfect health, the perfect vocation or relationship, and the perfect unfolding of whatever situation concerns us.  These affirmations (or positive statements) are made with the request that all be done in accordance with Divine Will and the highest good for everyone concerned.  Meditative prayer recognizes the essential ingredient that Jesus taught in Mark 11:24:  Anything you pray for and ask, believe that you will receive it, and it will be done for you.”  I would like to add another perspective to prayer.

Elizabeth Claire Prophet’s Divine Self Chart

       We see depicted in the Divine Self Chart multiple bodies combining to create our multi-dimensional being.  Our lower self consists of the physical, etheric, emotional, and mental bodies.  A measure of spiritual maturity is required in order to be consciously aware of our higher bodies, which include the Christ Self and the I AM PRESENCE.  The Christ Self is also referred to as the Higher (or Intuitive) Mind and the Higher Self.  The soul resides at the Christ Self level and our indwelling God is the part of our being called the I AM PRESENCE.  Thus, in our entirety, we exist on seven ascending vibratory or dimensional levels.  As we awaken spiritually, we attune gradually to the higher vibrations of our being.

During prayer, most of us envision some type of entity to whom we are praying:  God, Spirit, or a Higher Being.  Though we may know better than to personify God as the “man upstairs,” we still tend to think of this Being as separate from us, even while we intellectually affirm “I am one with God.”  We pray to “something larger than ourselves.”  A new perspective would be to recognize that we are praying to parts of ourselves:  our Christ Self and our I AM PRESENCE—the part of us that is God.

The Christ Self acts as the mediator between the lower self and the I AM PRESENCE.  Through our I AM PRESENCE, we are connected to all that is … we are one with God … we have access to the fulfillment of all our needs.  God is a part of us; we are a part of God.  For example:  When we say,  “there is no pain” … “there is no evil” … “there is no lack,” we are referring to the conditions on the I AM PRESENCE dimensional level.  These statements of Truth reveal the potential for perfection that is ours as we attune to our Christ Self and I AM PRESENCE.  They are not meant to lead us into denying the conditions experienced on the vibratory level of our physical, emotional, and lower mental (intellectual) bodies.  The lower mental body signifies our Intellect, which seeks tangible, visible proof on the physical plane.  The Higher Mental body is our Intuition, which knows Truth because it is attuned to the 5th or higher dimensions of perfection and enters our knowing through one of the higher chakras:  heart, third eye, or crown chakra.

WARNING:  Intuition is not to be confused with a psychic capacity.  Many psychic experiences can come from the astral plane through the solar plexus chakra.  The astral plane is not a plane of perfection and many misguided messages can come from this plane.

The physical, emotional, and lower mental states of humanity are our instruments for spiritual evolvement.  They allow us to learn the arts of forgiveness, self-discipline, using our freewill to choose the Good, compassion, and selflessness.  It would be a much slower process to learn these skills in a paradise world.  That’s why Adam and Eve left the Garden of Eden.  They, as representatives of Earth’s humanity, chose to know both good and evil—to reside on the plane of duality.  Humanity would now evolve into gods and goddesses by learning to live in the world with all its temptations, while choosing only the Good.  In this manner, we become gods and goddesses via our own freewill choice and self-discipline.  We develop our capacity for wisdom, power, and love through the process of trial and error.  We undergo the initiations of Jesus, a Wayshower, as revealed in the article entitled Ascension at:  http://www.pathwaytoascension.com/ascension.html  Otherwise, the human kingdom would be like the angelic kingdom.

Angels know only perfection.  Wherever they belong in the angelic hierarchy, they do the bidding of those with authority over them.  They do not individualize to the extent human beings do.  (As I write these words, I am told by Spirit that this statement is as close to the Truth about angels as we can comprehend; however, it is not the complete Truth.  Hopefully, all of us know that we perceive Truth at the level at which our human minds are capable.  Comparatively speaking, humanity’s knowledge and understanding is miniscule.)

Charles Fillmore describes this process of becoming gods and goddesses in his chapter on “Reincarnation” in The Essential Charles FillmoreLife is continuous and in harmony with the wholeness of Being only when it is expressed in a perfect body; hence man must have a body in order to gain an abiding consciousness of life.  Through repeated trials at living, man is finding out that he must learn to control the issues of life in his body …. The personal man with all his limitations, all his relations, must give way to the universal, the Christ man.”  Thus, to attune to and affirm perfection does not mean that we deny physical plane limitations; but that we strive to lift our consciousness to the level of perfection and learn to manifest that perfection in our physical plane lives as Jesus did.

How did Jesus do so?  Read the four gospels:  Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.  We find Jesus fulfilling the prerequisites detailed in the various translations of Be still, and know that I am God.”  He separated from the crowds and his disciples and spent time alone, attuning to the vibration of his I AM PRESENCE or, in his words, the Father within me.”  He spent entire nights in meditative prayer.  We, too, are to fulfill the prerequisites of prayer and meditation.

We are to cease our labors.  The western culture exalts the type A lifestyle with its frenzy of constant activity.  Society teaches us:  successful persons live a busy life.  How else can we be successful?   How else can we fulfill the myriad requirements placed upon us by the various roles we play?  Jesus did so by ceasing his labors, leaving the crowds of people clamoring for his attention, and spending time in meditative prayer.

We are to rest, to sit still.  Even though Brother Lawrence’s concept of “practicing the presence” is a marvelous tool for spiritual attunement, the Psalmist is indicating something different.  To rest or sit still means to set aside everything else and “be still.”  On the seventh day, God rested … God created the Sabbath for a day of rest.  This period of rest is an integral part of the cycle of creation and life.  It is the time that culminates in completion.  The number vibration of seven signifies completion.  In other words, when we omit the Sabbath—meaning regular periods of rest or being still and attuning to God—we fail to complete our purpose for incarnating on the physical plane of duality.  Our activity on the physical plane is to realize completion by sitting still and resting within the energy of our I AM PRESENCE.  We are replenished and healed as we attune to that level of ourselves that abides in perfection and love.  It is within this energy that we receive the answer to all prayers.  Herein, we assimilate perfection so that we can manifest it within our daily lives.

We are to repent, meaning to do an “about-face.”  We are to turn from involvement in the world and to look toward our I AM PRESENCE.  For it is only as we concentrate our attention on our I AM PRESENCE that we can accomplish the remaining imperatives put forth by the Psalmist.

In the quietude of resting and sitting still, we are to experience God.  Again, I find the diagram of our Divine Self helpful.  Although our seven bodies are actually interpenetrated rather than stacked one on top of the other, it is informative to visualize in meditation the cord of light extending downward from the I AM PRESENCE, thru the Christ Self, and into our lower bodies through the crown chakra.  In this manner, we begin to get a sense of our entire being.  We experience God as part of ourselves when we lift our consciousness to the I AM PRESENCE level, if only for a split second.

Be still, and know that I am God can be read metaphysically as:  Be still and know your I AM PRESENCE.  The Hebrew word translated to know can mean to know on an intimate level physically.  To know our I AM PRESENCE intimately is to merge consciously with our indwelling God.  As we merge our lower being with our Higher Being, we experience God.  We can begin to view life from God’s perspective.  Often, what we realize is that the very situations in our lives that we are resisting are the vehicles for our greatest growth.  With this insight, we can stop resisting the situations and see within them the perfect unfolding of Divine Order.  We realize that what appears to be imperfection on the physical plane can be the perfect vehicle for our spiritual growth.  For example:  Charles Fillmore appeared to lack a perfect physical body. One leg was shorter than the other.  However, this appearance of imperfection ended up being the perfect means for urging him to merge with his I AM PRESENCE and to bring the consciousness of a perfect limb into his physical plane awareness.  As a result, Fillmore increased the length of his leg by several inches.  This healing of self led him into the establishment of a healing prayer ministry that is now known throughout the planet as Silent Unity.  Thousands of persons have received healing.  What appeared as imperfection on the physical plane was, in actuality, the perfect vehicle for the creation of the Unity Movement.  The avenues for perfection may surprise us!

We are to gain knowledge of our I AM PRESENCE.  As we sit in meditative prayer and experience our I AM PRESENCE, we come to know that we are connected to all that is.  We can pray for others by merging our conscious awareness with our I AM PRESENCE, then allowing our attention to expand into the I AM PRESENCES of those for whom we are praying.  As we sit still at this level of perfection within ourselves and others, we can then affirm perfection manifesting within the physical and emotional bodies of all concerned.  We see and feel that perfection.  Our prayers are answered as we concentrate on the perfection that already exists within all of us.  The I AM PRESENCE can know only perfection.  Therefore, at this vibratory level of our being, perfection is all that is.

Rest from labor, and find out about God becomes an exciting adventure is self-discovery.  We are the Being to whom we pray.  We are the answers to our own prayers.

DO YOU WANT TO BE MADE WELL?

DO YOU WANT TO BE MADE WELL?

Nancy Detweiler, M.Ed., M.Div.

Scripture:  John 5:1-5, 14

       “After this there was a festival of the Jews, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.  Now in Jerusalem by the Sheep Gate there is a pool, called in Hebrew Bethesda, which has five porticoes.  In these lay many invalids—blind, lame, and paralyzed.  One man was there who had been ill for thirty-eight years.  When Jesus saw him lying there and knew that he had been there a long time, he said to him, ‘Do you want to be made well?’  The sick man answered him, ‘Sir, I have no one to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up; and while I am making my way, someone else steps down ahead of me.’  Jesus said to him, ‘Stand up, take your mat and walk.’  At once the man was made well, and he took up his mat and began to walk.

Later Jesus found him in the temple and said to him, ‘See, you have been made well!  Do not sin any more, so that nothing worse happens to you.’”

SETTING:  The setting for this story is Bethesda, a pool in Jerusalem with five porticoes, or porches.  The sick lie around this pool waiting for the angel of the Lord to appear and stir up the water.  They believe that the first person to step into the water, after the angel has stirred it, will be healed.

In Hebrew, Bethesda means “house of healing.”  Metaphysically, Bethesda symbolizes that point in our conscious awareness when we begin to feel Spirit flowing through us, cleansing us of our impurities.  Metaphysically, the five porches represent our five earth plane senses.

Thus the setting reveals that the sick lying on the porches are still attuned to their five senses, rather than to the ever-active healing power of God residing within them.  There are several ways in which their thoughts are imprisoning them in this pattern of dis-ease.

1.   They are waiting.  Anytime we orient our lives into a mode of “waiting,” that is what we create—waiting.

  1. They are waiting for something outside themselves to appear and heal them.
  2. They believe in limitation.  Only one person will be healed—the one who is first to step into the stirred waters.

4.  At least some of them view themselves as victim.  “I have no one to lift me into the water.”

You and I also sit around the pool of Bethesda.  How recently have you said, “I am waiting until …” in reference to a major goal in your life?  To what person or event outside of yourself are you looking for healing? … for that feeling of completeness? … for the courage to move forward with your life?  What factors in your life do you view as limiting your possibilities?  In what ways do you consider yourself to be a victim? … a victim of lack? … a victim of habit patterns? … a victim of illness?

JESUS APPEARS AT BETHESDA:  The physical location of  the story reveals an opportunity for each of us to life our consciousness to higher levels.  Jesus symbolizes the healing power of God dwelling within each of us.  Jesus chooses to speak to a man who has been ill for 38 years.  In numerology, 38 reduces to the number vibration of 11, telling us that this man is now approaching self-mastery.  He is ready to be healed by his own indwelling God presence.  He is ready to lift his conscious awareness above the physical plane of his five senses.  He is ready to be made well.

JESUS ASKS:  “DO YOU WANT TO BE MADE WELL?”

This is an extremely important question that each of us must ask of ourselves:  “Am I  ready to be made well by my indwelling God presence?”  Until we are ready to be healed, healing can actually be disruptive to the soul’s progress – or – healing will not occur because dis-ease contains a pay-off for us that is greater than the perceived pay-off of a healing.  For example:  A person who uses illness to gain the attention and caring of others may find the possibility of a healing to be frightening.  If so, this person will resist the healing.  Or, if a particular dis-ease is healed, with no shift in the consciousness level of the patient, another dis-ease will soon manifest.  All true healing is founded upon a change in consciousness—a turning to the God within.  An affirmative answer to Jesus’ question, “Do you want to be made well?” is therefore essential.

THE MAN ANSWERS JESUS according to his sense perception, which renders him a victim:  “I have no one to put me into the pool.”  Viewing life through his five senses, the man sees himself as helpless in the face of deprivation and limitation.  Though he is ready to be healed, he is not yet aware of the healing power lying latent within himself.  But Spirit is stirring within him.  Jesus’ question meets a receptive soul, open to the possibility of healing.

Are you open and receptive to divine order unfolding in your life?  Are you ready to be healed of the error thought, painful emotion, or physical dis-ease that holds you prisoner to life as seen through the five senses?

JESUS DOES NOTHING; INSTEAD, HE SPEAKS THE WORDS OF HEALING BY THROWING THE RESPONSIBILITY FOR ACTION BACK ON THE MAN:  “Stand up, take your mat and walk.”  The man is healed as he takes action.  A tremendous shift in consciousness had to take place in order for a man who has waited by the pool for 38 years to stand up and walk in obedience to Jesus’ command.  No longer is he waiting … no longer is he allowing thoughts of deprivation and limitation to imprison him in a diseased body … no longer is he expecting someone or something outside himself to perform the healing … no longer does he consider himself to be victim.  He takes action in response to an inner urging of Spirit.  He, like each of us, has the inner power to respond to Spirit by taking physical plane action in the very areas that have heretofore held him prisoner.  He has believed himself to be unable to walk—he gets up and walks.

In what areas of life do you believe yourself to be powerless to take affirmative action?  Your indwelling God presence would have you know that you have the power to “get up and walk.”

In the case of physical healing, Charles Fillmore (co-founder of the Unity Movement) reminds us that physiology describes the blood corpuscles as little batteries, each with a negative and a positive pole.  If these batteries are filled with the positive life force, they constantly electrify the body.  But if, through the power of our thoughts and words, we affirm the negative or our dis-ease, we rob these batteries of their natural electrifying energy.  We slow down their vitality by giving them an element of negation.  To hold negative thoughts in the mind is to stamp negation on the body.  To demonstrate perfect health, we must plant the knowledge of that perfection in our minds and body.  We must be attuned to the constant influx of Spirit establishing equilibrium within our bodies, independently of the traditional healing modalities of our culture.  Those persons waiting around the Pool of Bethesda were imprisoned by their faith in a traditional healing modality outside themselves—the stirring of the waters by an angel.

Lest anyone misunderstand, neither the Bible, Fillmore, nor I are recommending ignoring traditional medicine.  We are stating that the true source of all healing is within us in the form of our indwelling God presence.  It is as we attune consciously to this presence of Spirit that we are truly empowered to stand up, take our mat, and walk as a person healed of all dis-ease.

LATER THAT DAY, JESUS FOUND THE HEALED MAN IN THE TEMPLE.  Jesus cautioned him, “See, you have been made well!  Do not sin any more, so that nothing worse happens to you.”

Fillmore defines sin as “wrong thinking,” the belief in two powers—good and evil.  When Jesus warns the man not to sin any more, he is encouraging him not to allow himself to resume giving attention to the negative, not to once more focus on thoughts of limitation or dis-ease.

Then Jesus makes a curious statement, “so that nothing worse happens to you.”  In essence, Jesus is saying to the man, “if being healed after 38 years of negative thinking does not transform your conscious awareness, then something even more traumatic will be required to get your attention.  The same problem will repeat itself until we allow the Christ Consciousness to heal us completely—to move us beyond any tendency to revert to negative thinking or to be imprisoned by beliefs based on a perception of life through our five senses.

As we seek healing, we are to concentrate upon the flowing of the Spirit throughout our bodies, our minds, our emotions, and our lives.  We are to remember that through the power of God all things are made right and good.  We are to recall that God is Love, God is Good, and that God is all that is.  There is only one power in the universe.  All else is illusion, based on wrong thinking.  Belief in this One Power is our true source of healing and transformation into the Christed individual we are all to become.  Then, we too will possess the capacity to stand up, take up our mat, and walk as Christed beings!
