I am Athena. I
have been asked to speak to you today as a representative of
The Council of 12 because of my close association with Melora
and the one who sits before you. Because of this association
it is possible for me to speak through her directly to your hearts.
As the being volunteering to step forward to speak on behalf
of The Council of 12, I wish to tell you how important it is
for you to recognize the critical role you play, not only in
the touching of the hearts of people in your immediate association
but in the very processes of Ascension that so many are seeking
It hurts us to
see you behaving toward yourselves, your beautiful selves, in
ways that are not loving. It hurts us to have you not be able
to comprehend your beauty and the magnitude of your light. It
hurts us to communicate our love to you and have you not hear
it. It hurts us that you don't know what love is when it is right
When I say that
it hurts us, it is not in the same sensing as your hurts of the
ego or even of the heart. For us, the interpretation of it
hurts is: We send you beautiful, harmonious energy and love,
and what is reflected back toward us is jagged, almost shards-of-glass-like
feeling. It is not as though we absorb these energies or that
it harms us in a way that you would understand. It is that, in
a way, it confuses us--about how this energy that we keep directing
towards you ends up turning into these shards of jagged glass
or waves of confusion, waves of frustration.
And although we,
as beings, comprehend that this is very much the reality in the
Earthly plane (so often and so long has it gone on), it still
affects us profoundly--and we would say energetically
without any coldness of "energetic" implied--and that
it does affect us. We do not, as you would say, internalize it
as beings, but we notice it very profoundly, and we do experience
an equivalent of what you would consider to be sadness. Sadness,
for these beings who support you today, would best be described
as a sinking of the energy instead of the ebullient energy, the
expansive energy. Sinking instead of rising, do you see? And
in that way it affects us profoundly.
I do not say these
things to make you feel even less about yourselves than you do
but to tell you in saying this how interconnected we are, because
this apparently is a concept that humans find so difficult to
accept and embrace: that we are not higher than, that we are
not "above" you as beings, that we are not separate
And we are also
telling you about what Melora spoke of as responsibility. As
beings in the light you have a responsibility to the entire light
quotient that, if taken in the One, is beyond measure, beyond
grasping, beyond comprehension. You are responsible for what
you emit into your energetic environment, for this should be
the focus--not "Should I go to my ex-mother-in-law's house
for Christmas," do you see? So I am asking to shift your
consciousness and consider your existence as a light being and
take responsibility for whether you're polluting your energetic
environment or whether you are creating energetic flowers opening
. . . whether your speech is like the fragrance of lotus or spiky
like thorns . . . whether your very presence calms and soothes
yourselves and others or whether it is a source of discord for
yourself and others. This is not a matter of protocol or propriety
or rules of society. This is a matter of your spiritual welfare
and the spiritual welfare of others--all others on Earth, whether
you meet them, inter-react with them or not.
In choosing to
re-awaken and to remember your selves as beings of the light
on a mission here, this is the moment in your lifetime--this
weekend, now, as you sit before the rest of The Council, to decide
whether you wish to embrace this journey or whether you wish
not to. This is a critical moment in your spiritual life. Now.
In this moment.
There is always
a possibility in every incarnational life, and in every level
or dimensional expression of you, to come to a critical juncture
and not choose to go in that burst like a rocket to the light.
The result is having to come back. The result in physical existence
is karma. The result in non-physical existence is moving laterally
instead of "vertically." You can stay going laterally
into eons of time because you keep choosing not to rise, do you
And so I would
like to add that in the description of Archangel Ariel's movement--constantly
lifting, constantly lifting--here is the energetic motion which
we would like you to feel in your bodies, in your very souls,
as the motion that will always tell you that you are moving forward,
not as in progress but as in taking on greater and greater light
and coming to an understanding of service in the light.
Moving beyond "I need to solve my problems as a person"
to "I need, at the soul level, to be of service in the light."
Once you make the commitment to be of service in the light, then
the personal therapies and processing all seem much less important.
This does not mean
that you stop using the energy of contemplation to see where
you are not being loving to yourself. That is ongoing. This does
mean that you begin to focus energy more and more on being an
appropriate representation of that which you seek--an appropriate
representation of the light-being-ness. This does not mean that
if you make a mistake you have failed in your mission. It means
that you keep focusing on being the light.
I have come to
you this afternoon because it is of great urgency that you grasp
what I have said, and what Melora has said, and all that is opening
up in you, and what your guidance is saying. It is of great urgency.
Other information that has come through in recent years through
channels has said, "Tomorrow you will be beamed up,"
and this sort of thing. It is almost as in the story of "The
Boy Who Cried 'Wolf'." People have ceased to listen. And
there is urgency. I assure you: It is of great urgency that you
come into the embracing of this spiritual opening and all that
it can lead you to, starting now.
I will not make
any forecasts, for that is not higher work. That takes you out
of the focus of your own expression as a light being and puts
you into really 3rd-dimensional kinds of concerns like physical
survival. I will say that what is coming is a great shift
that will create a chasm between those of the light and those
not of the light . . . and there is no in-between--there is only
the chasm between those who fully embrace their light work and
those who are in fear, those who are in confusion.
As a human experience,
confusion rarely happens without the person fighting with himself.
It always means that you are fighting with yourself. Again, I
ask you: When you feel these emotions that undermine your very
knowledge that you are divine, you must, you must, you must
. . . turn away from them and not indulge in them, not swim
in them, not let them envelope you. Letting them do so is an
act of self-annihilation. Do you understand? An act of self-annihilation.
I am being asked
now to withdraw my energies from the one before you. It is very
intense for her. Before I withdraw, I, as a representative of
The Council of 12, send you the greatest and deepest honor, love,
affection, and I ask that you send us the same in return,
for we do not thrive alone as ourselves. We thrive in our association
with you as you allow it. We feed each other mutually. And also
before I withdraw I ask you to share with us in this feast of
light and life that awaits you, if only you will walk toward
us and accept it.
And with that I
will now withdraw. I am yours, as you ask--Athena.
