ATHENA: PART II
An Embodiment of Athena
MELORA & ATHENA through Joanna
This second of two parts excerpts
material from an extraordinary session in November 1997 in which
Melora helped Athena incarnationally merge with an embodiment of herself
in a lifetime in Classical Greece. It tells a dramatic story
about Athena not recorded in history. Also included is an October
1995 channeling that took place spontaneously after a long night
of chanting to the goddess Lakshmi at the Boulder Siddha Meditation
Center. Throughout both these channelings, the great intensity
of Athena's love can be felt.
We would like to clarify the meditation
our Jyoti did yesterday in which she saw Athena in embodiment,
saw the golden room beneath the statue of Athena in the Parthenon,
felt herself in the statue looking out at people, felt herself
refamiliarize herself with the way the air smelled and the way
the breeze felt. Jyoti got a bit stuck when requested to go to
the feelings as Athena. There was some need in the mental apparatus
to understand how she could both be embodied and also teleport
in her 12th-dimensional energetic form. (Jyoti now feels confident
that she may move to the heart connection with that life.)
Our Jyoti's experience is telescoping
quite a number of successive lives. She doesn't understand the
part of the vision of that embodiment in which she was, as "priestess"
to herself, in the golden chamber beneath the statue of Athena
Parthenos . . . the part about the cut-outs in the golden "book"
leaves. These sheets could be inserted in the floor at the base
of the statue, and then she would generate photon light from
the heart of her lightship, and the light would project through
the cut-outs onto the ceiling of the Parthenon. Jyoti's interpretation
was that these were Greek letters. She had a sense that Athena
taught the people Greek, which was really Athena's star language
(from her universe). This is a mixup in chronology.
The imparting of Athenas's language, which
came to be called Greek, occurred in a much earlier embodiment
on that hill that became the Acropolis, but that was centuries
before the embodiment our Jyoti experienced. The buildings were
not, of course, there when Athena's lightship landed. If you
look at languages on your Earth, the only other language that
incorporates Greek letters is Russian; however, Cyril merely
borrowed the Greek letters in developing the Russian alphabet.
The Romance languages (meaning Roman, not "romantic")
have roots in common. Sanscrit is part of the Indo-European language
structure. But Greek is of itself. The people in what you would
consider ancient, pre-classical Crete had a language that was
more closely related to the other languages of the Mediterranean
countries that eventually became Arabic, Aramaic or Hebrew, etc.
The people of Hellas, or Greece, were speaking
primitive versions of such languages before Athena's arrival.
As we have said, the Greek language is
so rich in dimensionality (isn't that term interesting?) conceptually
that only those who spoke it at that time could understand the
nuances. You can study classical Greek and not be able to translate
it adequately into any other current language on the earth. This
is also why part of your Bible is so distorted: The New Testament
was, you see, originally translated into Greek from the Aramaic
because Greek was the scholarly language of the times.
Classical Greek consolidated a much higher
consciousness onto the Earth because it was a star language,
and that was one of Athena's many gifts. In fact, the Greeks
were well aware (it's not just mythology) of all Athena's gifts
and so named her the patron goddess of weaving, of literature
and the other arts, and of culture and civilization. These are
not just abstract terms. Think of Athena's having brought that
language to them--a language that would become the heart of their
civilization and culture. Our Jyoti is hearing that "Ah-tay-eh"
is the correct pronunication of the Greek for "Athena"
(although there was a nasal pronunciation of what the character
theta is supposed to represent, much as in how the French pronounce
"non"). This is from where the "n" sound
in the name Athena came.
Actually, the name "Athena"
is a static representation of a being who has grown much greater,
so those would not now be the tonals that would represent her.
In other words, the tonals "Athena" would be understood
on earth historically as representing that being as she was expressed
at that time. We feel her: Beloved Sister! She is right behind
our Jyoti. It is giving her "a buzz," as they say.
Athena is very excited; her energy is sort of skipping about.
Our Joyoti gives permission for Athena to enter her physical-ness.
Let us take a journey to that time and place again to see why
there is so much emotional charge there. Athena asks that our
Jyoti speak as Athena to maintain the heart connection.
I am that whom you call Athena. I have
spread my mantle of protection over the one Jyoti. She is confused,
still, thinking "Who am I?" "Who is she?"
We will remind her of what she already knows about the expressions
of The One in their diverse forms, just as in the expressions
of Athena in our growth in incarnation, in our existences in
I enjoyed my existence back in those days
when I encompassed the temple that was created for me. Yet, there
was such a heavy burden and responsibility, as there sometimes
can be with the greatness of love as it can be expressed. I felt
abandoned by the Great Ones in that embodiment, in that sort
of split between being in the body and being in my higher form--back
and forth, and back and forth, trying to do the work I was called
to do there. I got rather lost in the density of that existence,
and it caught me so by surprise that I found myself at a point
where I felt it was too late to recognize how lost I had become.
I was as a butterfly whose wing is torn and who can no longer
fly. In truth, in assuming that I needed to take responsibility
for my choices, I forgot to ask for help.
It is interesting to note that before
coming into merging with the one, here, I was unaware of how
lost I was in that embodiment. In this is a lesson for ALL who
wonder why they would ever choose to come into body rather than
just to stay in another form that keeps one out of this density.
Those here assume that those in higher dimensions are able to
learn anything, to learn many more things than you are
able to learn here. This is not so, for when it comes to repairing,
healing, and making whole and harmonious that which is disrupted
while in embodiment, there needs to be a connection to a part
of oneself that is in body for that to take place.
With Melora's and the one Jyoti's help,
let us journey back to the temple and have my embodiment ask
for the help that she needed then. [pause] I am there, standing
by the statue as the embodiment. As you face it you would see
the embodiment at the left of the statue. As the embodiment,
I enter the statue from a golden chamber beneath. I am now in
the statue, looking through the eyes at the worshippers. I suddenly
realize that in looking out through the eyes of the statue from
this height, and having them look so small, I have created a
great distance between us without meaning to. My assumption has
been that they will feel my energy from the entire statue, but
they are more preoccupied with the face and eyes. So they are
not focused on the energies coming to them from my enlivening
the statue, and I realize with horror that I have actually created
distance between myself and them by looking down on them in such
a way, as a god.
I will lift my eyes up and ask for the
help of all those above me: my guides, my creator source, the
being just over me, from the hierarchies that are even higher
than ever before described on earth--the greatest hierarchies
of light. A golden being is coming to me, surrounding me, and
entering me. It is requesting that I calibrate my perceptions
to the worshippers now. I am embodied as High Priestess to myself,
and this confuses them. I need to be with them at the base of
the statue and speak as one of them. It is not possible to do
this from within the statue.
It is possible to create a form that is
exactly like the statue that they see as first superimposed over
the statue, then a form coming out of the statue, and then I
come before them. I am now moving out of the statue so that they
can see me shrink in size very gradually, and I am luminous with
light, so that they cannot even see the statue behind me any
more. They are gathering in front of me now. I am about half
the size of the statue. I am still making myself decrease in
size. I long so for their acceptance of me as a being embodied,
just as they, and I tell them this.
I am now their size. I am telling them
that my purpose in being here is to help them with my love. I
will say this out loud so that it can be felt in the body of
the one sitting here: "I say to you, priestesses of Athena,
that your spirits are as great as that which you think I am.
Yea. Even greater. That I have come to show you the greatness
of your own being. Nothing more. I have not asked you to worship
me. I have in no way meant to trick you. I merely made some mistakes
in what I determined would be the best way to relate to you.
I am not from here, you see. I am from another Universe. I wish
not to terrify you. I also wish NOT for you to worship me. Once
it began, I felt that I could not complete my mission here in
helping you if I suddenly disrupted the way in which you seem
to have become so comfortable with me. And so I have had to continue
this masquerade in ways that I felt I had to. Now I ask you to
accept me in my embodiment as a demonstration of how all great
beings have embodiments as part of their total expression. And
I wish (being in a human body) to feel the same love, and caresses,
and happiness and laughter, and even tears that you do. I do
not wish to be above you."
I wish to let them know that the statue
is now being transmigrated to the treasuries of Athens so that
the wealth of the city goes from the statue to the appropriate
treasury vaults. History in the future would have it that the
Christians came in, dismantled the statue and carried it away
for their own use, but we are rewriting history here. And we
wish to have the statue go to the Athenian treasury and let the
history play out in the same way as before, except that the treasuries
will be robbed. The statue will not have been carried away, which
was very devastating to the Athenians. This way I am doing it
and telling them that the money is going to the treasury.
To the worshippers I say this: "I
want to acknowledge my understanding of the tremendous love that
this represents: that you have erected this statue. And I wish
to acknowledge and honor you for the generosity and the love
that this shows coming from your hearts. But I now wish (since
this is the statue erected to me and represents me) to change
the energies of the gold and ivory and to transport them to the
treasuries of Athens in their appropriate vaults for the use
of the Athenians and not to be tied up in the statue. This will
require an adjustment, because you have come to see this statue
as Athena, not realizing that the very energy you have felt here
is energy that is not inherent in the gold and the ivory. It
is energy that you can call upon at any time. I have only brought
it to the statue so that I could feel close to you . . . and
you to me."
"And so I promise you that in transmuting
the statue, in transmigrating the gold and the ivory to the treasuries
of Athens, you will still feel my energy. You can still come
here and commune with me--not worship me--but commune with me.
You will feel the same energy, even more so than when the statue
was here because now you will not be distracted by the statue
itself. I promise I will be here for you. Whenever you call me
I can be here so that you will never feel that Athena has left
you. If I don't do this, I will have to leave, both in embodiment
and in withdrawing my energies from here. And I will tell you
now: I will NOT leave you. This is how it must be done."
The crowd is growing. They are almost
understanding. I know that there will be those who claim they
can still see the statue. In no way, however, will this have
been my doing. As I withdraw my focus from this time I wish to
express a feeling that I had not realized. I feel truly that
they are my children, and I have had an ache in my heart the
way a mother aches for her children whom she perceives are suffering.
This is what drew me hence from my home universe to begin with.
And so now, having made the pledge that I will be with them whenever
they call (and that I will not not desert them the way I felt
I must before), I feel at peace. I feel that this may bring deep
changes in their worship of the false beings that so many have
allowed to take over their lives.
So truly they have awakened in those lifetimes,
in the simultaneous NOW, and it has benefited all very greatly.
Those who accused me of trickery are now saying that they were
wrong and that they are sorry. I feel at peace now, knowing that,
out of my own ignorance and my own misunderstanding, I did not
leave them. And I did not abandon myself.
This is a beautiful healing, and I thank
you most heartily. It is important for the one, Jyoti, to understand
that even 12th-dimensional beings, as you term us, need to learn
these lessons--that our growth depends on your growth and your
awareness, that we are keenly aware of your struggles. Know how
critical you are to us as more than just our children. You are
seeds of us in creation. I, Athena, wish to acknowledge our dear,
sweet sister Melora in her work in helping this vehicle, Jyoti,
who loves Melora so much that we can appear with her simulaneously
with Melora now if Jyoti needs that for a time. Through Jyoti,
the one she terms as Melora and I become even closer in our communication
and energy. It adds more dimensions to our communion.
It has been my purpose to come into re-union
with all other aspects of Athena and to let the one, Jyoti, understand
the tremendous role that is hers in this process, and then to
bring all of the soul group into communion and reunion. Beyond
the Athena that you know, I am one who traverses many universes.
I am one who can be heard as a voice of God, not just
as what you term the "feminine" aspect but who, in
the purity and the clarity of The One, can be heard as a voice
from the very source. The aspect of me that you could say is
speaking now is that which you are terming 12th-dimensional but
yet is ever greater, "higher" vibrationally . . . higher
in terms of the group consciousness merging in power and vibration
and yet which can resonate within individual expression inter-dimensionally,
within embodiment, within galaxy expression.
It is our purpose to teach how to heal
the soul families of other beings, which will result in a great
Ascension not only for human beings but also for all the beings
who exist on multiple levels so that all may come into reunion
in oneness with the Source. I am yours, always, Athena.
OCTOBER 1995 MESSAGE FROM ATHENA
I am indeed Athena, and it is my honor
to be with you at this late hour. I wish to speak not as a "goddess"
but as your sister. What you said to Melora about feeling the
goddess energy and your inner strength is what made me wish to
speak to you. I am glad that you feel my energy, and this is
what I wish to bring to all women. It is not as though I am (Melora
is telling me this) "a raging feminist." It is not
as though I wish to separate men and women, because I do not.
But for so many millennia men have controlled everything. So,
as an act of love, I wish to focus on women at this time.
Women have suffered so much in the male
dominated world, and I wish to say that I am a feminine energy
of great strength and that I choose to work with women at this
time, for they are truly the ones who need my help. I wish to
speak through you because of the misconception, as you have put
it, of my "persona" throughout history since the time
you term Classical Greece and even before that. I am as you see
me--much softer than the way I was interpreted by the Greeks.
It is true that I appeared before people of spiritual excellence
long, long before that time. Neither am I the totally wild snake
dancer [laughs softly]. Fierce, yes, in my love of truth; intense,
yes, in my desire for creative beauty and excellence. And the
interpretation of my essence as "the weaver," the one
who brings culture and art and weaving and craft, these are true.
But not the brittle warrior, sprung from Zeus's head.
I wish to speak this evening as a representative
of what you interpret to be goddess energy, an aspect of goddess
energy which you have rightly understood to be coming in great
abundance, now, at this time, and that has been needed so long
for the healing of the entire planet. I come not as a warrior
but as a champion of womanhood, and of healing and weaving back
together what has been severed within so many women: their knowledge
and the experience of their own great gifts and beauty. I come
not as a "celebrity." I come not to impress you that
it is Athena speaking.
You are perceiving me in your thoughts
as "Alive, beautiful light. Soft. Strong. Confident. Not
needing to prove anything. Compassionate. A friend." Yes,
and Melora and I wished you to feel this, because this is the
strength of woman: soft, strong, compassionate, confident. All
these things that you experience are what the goddess energy
expresses, and anyone who would wish to make that a warrior is
not reading the true energy, you see.
And so, "look in the mirror"
and see yourself, and see all of your other women friends. This
is who you are, and the goddess energy as you describe it is
Gaia's energy. My energy channeling through you is very strong
for you, Jyoti. It makes your heart beat very fast. I believe
what you are feeling is the tremendous love that all of us have
for you and also that the "re-emerging" of the goddess
energy on the planet is so strong. And it is going to continue
to get strong even faster. It is literally going to take people's
breath away. It literally is going to make their hearts beat
very fast, because the heart is the center of Ascension . . .
the opening of the heart. And this is the energy that I bring.
Many women will not know what is happening.
They will feel increased joy, strength, and power in the sense
that they will no longer put up with any "nonsense,"
especially from men but also from opther women who are (as our
Jyoti puts it) "Barbie Dolls." Also they will no longer
put up with women who want to "be like men," for women
who want to be like men at this point in time really only want
to have a "male" kind of power. So understand that
female energy already is power. It is not something you put on
like an overcoat. It is something that you come to an understanding
about inside yourself--that you already are that tremendous,
feminine Holy Spirit, Sananda energy. Sananda has been misinterpreted
to mean Jesus. Sananda really is, like the Holy Spirit, the female
principle. The well-balanced, integrated, totality of feminine
energy is expressed in great nurturing. It is equal with the
God-male principle, not second to it, not even as woman "made
from Adam's rib," an un-truth.
In closing, I wish for you and all women,
not just those on this path, to experience what you have experienced
in our communing together this evening. In looking in the mirror
and in meeting each other, I wish for all women to know this
experience and to see themselves here [indicates the heart] and
to see their beauty here, and to carry that with you. Always.
And I wish very much for you to be able to experience this all
I thank you for inviting me. I thank you
for your faith and your many gifts in the light, and for receiving
my words so graciously. I wish all women to know that whenever
you need strength of the particular kind that I have described,
any time you wish to have my comfort and my presence, my counsel
in the form of your thought energy and your intuition--any time
you wish for me to be there for you--you have only to call upon
me. I am Athena, your protectress and guide if you wish, and
I wish to be of service to all who desire this. Finally, I, Athena,
wish you always to have joy and love.
