The Wisdom Factor
from a group channeling with Melora.
through Joanna Neff
1: Is the Ascension process
just what we make of it? My Ascension is what I make of it?
MELORA: Essentially. And we have said that
"Consciousness is all," so what you are conscious of
will either restrict you or propel you in that direction, as
1: Well, a lot of material
is flooding in, and I guess I feel that there's a lot of work
on myself to do--cleansing, and that kind of a thing, on many
levels. But at the same time I guess I realize it's what I make
of it. There's always a bit of uncertainty and unknowing what
the next step will bring or surface.
MELORA: Yes, and we wish to encourage people
to allow the process and not to go into the climbing-the-ladder,
working-at-it achievement kind of experience of Ascension, because
it's really about what you allow yourself to remember.
It's sort of like coming out of a coma. This person says, "I'm
your wife," and you say, "I don't recognize you."
[general laughter] Not that your not remembering it makes
it any less true that this is your wife and that these are your
in a coma when you're in 3rd-dimensional reality! And then upon
Ascension you wake up.
steps to Ascension, as experienced in the body. With the 3-dimensional
brain there are steps, and so, yes, you can be more or less Ascended.
Yes, you can come to another "step" of consciousness
in which you're allowing a greater expansion of awareness and
remembrance of your true state of being, which in religions has
been called remembering your divinity--your experience of the
Oneness termed "enlightenment." "Self-realization"--"I
realize who I am. I AM THAT." "I am God."
2: Where are the murderers
and rapists and other people who have perpetrated evil . . .
as far as dimensional?
MELORA: You are using the word "evil."
We do not choose that word. As we have said before (you may not
have been here that night), we have all been the guys in the
black hats and the guys in the white hats. We have experienced
everything, and "God" is not just the head of the guys
in the white hats. God is the head of the guys in the dark hats
too. And so all have experienced virtually everything. And, you
see the yin/yang symbol, which is Tai Chi. The dark one has the
white eye, and the white one has the dark eye. And the syllables
"gu-ru" are darkness and light. The truly enlightened
guru is in that yin/yang position of total unity and balance--the
integration of polarity.
That triangle at the apex:
the negative/positive integration. It is a symbol of Sirius.
It goes on in Orion, where one of the stars is totally "light";
one is totally dark; the one in the center is the integration
of the two in the belt of Orion. And these are portals through
with these polarities are expressed. It's the same in the Sirius
system, where higher civilizations decide to express "the
dark," or "the light," or the integration of those.
So part of "God"
consciousness is coming out of the duality consciousness ("This
is positive; this is negative." "This is black; this
is white.") and embracing integration and accepting The
All That Is. This does not mean that "God" is evil.
It means that the manifold expressions of God's own consciousness
or whatever the Prime Creator--the very "top" creator--fragmented,
of you will, aspects of itself (or themselves) to give himself/herself
to get information about Self the way you chose to learn lessons
in this lifetime to learn about you.
This is the evolutionary,
or expansive part. "The Big Bang," if you will, where
everything goes out and out and out, and there are more and more
delineations, fragments, or whatever you wish to call them. Now
Prime Creator is bringing those consciousness fragments--fragmented
When we say "fragment"
we mean separated in consciousness as the free will that
exists here. We are all "God" but we don't know it.
And so self-realization, which you call enlightenment, is realizing
that you are God. All the time you're living in it and experiencing
that constantly, and then you're in bliss. You're in Nirvana.
The game is, in what ways
do the fragments of Creator explore and do things? And which
ways help you remember that you're God? Which ways don't? As
it turns out, the so-called "evil" things are those
that are separating. The so-called evil things separate
one's consciousness from God. And that's not a value judgment.
It's just reality, if you will. And so when you have non-love
expressions, they separate you from God consciousness.
2: But they're still
part of . . . it's just that they're choosing separation?
MELORA: Let us put it this way: We will
put it into terms of, say your relationship with ourselves. Say
you're having a bad day, and you're really angry and frustrated.
You've been yelling at people in traffic. You may even have used
some obscene gesture or something, just out of your frustration.
Now if we looked at that and said, "You're a bad person!"
"You're evil!" Would that be correct? No. Of course
not. It is just that your expression was an expression of non-love.
In that moment you separated yourself from your connection with
source. That's all. It's neither bad nor good. It's neither evil
nor not evil.
2: We judge it and we
give it power.
MELORA: You judge it as evil. Now those
people who are out there raping and murdering and being greedy
and oppressing people are not creating on the Soul level any
negativity for anyone else but themselves. The illusion is that
there is the victim and the predator. The actuality is that both
have chosen the experience. Now the one who learns what's supposed
to be learned is the one who "advances" and grows.
The one who doesn't probably has to come back in the next life
and become the victim. That's all it is: Did you learn it or
not? Not that that is of God and this isn't.
Did you, by oppressing all
these people come back into the memory that you were God? Probably
not. Someone like Saul on the road to Damascus . . . persecutor
of Jews. A light comes down and blinds him. He's converted and
becomes the Apostle Paul. Did he learn it? Did he grow? Yes.
Into a very great disciple. So the point is: Do you get it or
not? And then after you get it, do you use it in wisdom? That
is, you get it and now you approach and perceive things out of
that wisdom. And you act and make choices out of that wisdom.
3: In changing the probabilities
for Earth changes and disaster and all that, it is my understanding
that the more we come into our heart centers the faster we will
be able to change probabilities.
MELORA: Yes. This is a good way to put it.
3: What's a good way
to open up the heart center, other than intending that you do
MELORA: Our motto is: "Consciousness
is all." So if a person is very mental, then the consciousness
energy is being focused from the mental "sphere," if
you will. And many have gone that route through metaphysics,
which is pretty much purely mental. In opening the heart, chanting
the sanscrit syllables, certain vowel tones open the heart. This
has been done from ancient days. Coming out of your head
experience of relationship and out of your analytical kind of
approach to your relationship with other people is a start.
For example, you're looking
for what is beneath your own emotions and your own emotions.
You're looking beneath what your mind is saying about your relationship
to other people. This is encompassed by coming out of duality
and experiencing the Oneness more of the time. So the mind always
says, "We are separate." The mind says, "Here's
what I'm like. Here's what you're like. Here's how we're different.
Here are the things I like about you. These are the things that
irritate me about you." And that is separation. That is
why judgment separates. Judgment assumes that you are different
than I am. And then there is the sort of interesting sidelight
of projection. I say that you do it and that it irritates me,
but it is something I do too.
If one can look at others
in relationship--not as being valuable because you're so alike,
think and dress alike. Many people base all their relationships
on how alike they are because they feel more comfortable with
that or it makes their ego feel good that they have this sort
of "twin" out here. But the real love acknowledges
you for exactly where you are, and when I relate to you, I am
not mentally going, "Now she's saying this but she's
really thinking that." "I think she ought to
wear a little more makeup to enhance her looks." [laughs]
It really has to do with totally focusing on the other person
and listening to what they say--and being interested in what
they have to say--without judgment. These are areas in which
you may start to shift out of the mental domain and into just
experiencing the person's being. This is a difficult shift
for people who are used to being mental.
3: I'm assuming that
helping others to open their heart center is best accomplished
by opening your own and then just letting your energy resonate
MELORA: We would suggest that you not worry
about trying to help others open their hearts. Serving as an
example is the greatest way to accomplish this. Then in opening
your heart and in having this change of experience take
place, your experience of yourself will first change. Then your
experience of all relationships will change. Then your relationship
with the entire world will change. It is much to be desired,
not to be feared. We thank you for your question.
As always, we thank you for
giving us the opportunity to work with you, and we are Melora.
