MELORA through Joanna
What about Soul Assignments?
MELORA: All right. Give us a moment. We brought this term
up in this discussion of religion, in this discussion of aligning
yourself with the appropriate, highest Divine aspect of you because
we wanted to distinguish between this sense of aligning and that
of worshipping some Earth-based god or gods of your understanding.
Soul Assignments are
group shared, are Soul
Groups shared, and they originate with the Being
most highly evolved of that Soul Group. If we use Athena as an
example, who she is in her most exalted and most evolved expression,
we can explain that Soul Assignments have to do with your resonance,
which we have explained before--what issues or aspects of [3rd-dimensional]
Reality that the group wishes to explore in its many expressions,
whether that's physical, just energy, or whatever that is. Whatever
dimensions, whatever universes. ("Issues" would be
the Earth term, meaning that in Earth embodiment that would be
an issue or a challenge. "Aspects of Reality" would
be the Soul-level term.)
And those qualities are
what enable Ascended Beings to distinguish each other from each
other, even though they are in Oneness consciousness. So someone
of the Order of Melchizedek would be able to recognize a Christed
Being because of that, even in the Oneness consciousness. Because
there is not any evolved being or god, no matter how evolved,
that is totally whole. That's what creates Infinity. That movement
toward wholeness creates and moves into Infinity. This is a very
important understanding. Therefore, one of the first clues on
Earth that a person is not enlightened is when they say: "I
[laughs] Do you see?
Yes because a kahuna I was working with said, "Kahunas don't
call themselves "kahuna"; other people do." Do
soul groups vary in size?
MELORA: Oh, of course. And that would range according to not even time. It
would vary according to that seeding--that concept of seeding
consciousness, as in Starseed. There are "older" or
more ancient (and we're not talking millennia [laughs]; we're
talking trillions of years) groups. You could conceivably talk
about a core group of beings that existed--not one, but at least
two. Not ever one. You could probably get to that point, but
their evolution from where they started has so many permutations,
it's like fractiles. That's why there can't be One God--ever.
That's why Yahweh of Genesis is not the same Yahweh of
Ecclesiastes, because Yahweh keeps evolving.
S: Yes. Like
we do. Of course.
MELORA: That's why in our [Joanna] put her question in parentheses
("The Yahweh of the Old Testament?") Continuing
to impose those static structures of Yahweh on Earth is holding
people back from their own evolution.
I thought that was so
interesting when you said that was the bondage of the
Jews [in Part I]. Those words are just marvelous.
I requested another session with
S. to get more specific information about several topics Melora
discussed in the 3-part "For Star Children" series.
Here is more clarification about "Soul Assignments"
from a session on 2/9/02. -- Joanna Neff
. . . After reading the
transcript [of the "For Star Children Series"]
I was wondering: "Who is in charge of our lives?
Yes. That is an excellent
question. This also came through with a client yesterday, and
that is: What does it mean when you say, "For one's highest
good." This is related to what you were saying. This would
be from what you would consider a Universal, Divine perspective--not
even from your High Self level. Not even from your OverSoul level,
and most certainly not just from your consciousness level in
this current embodiment. So it would be your highest Divine Guide,
as we mentioned this term before, as it is true and as it resonates
with the true Creator Source--meaning, All That Is Good, All
That Is. "All That Is Good" is important to say.
. . . Yes, and part of
the question was: "As I get older, and I want to stay on
the Earth as I know it, who decides when I leave?"
We're hearing that
your Core Soul decides.
. . . This is for everybody?
The Core Soul decides when enough's enough, and it's time to
Right, and the Core Soul is NOT synonymous with
the High Self. Your High Self is part of what you would consider
the Core Soul, because the Core Soul is the collective, including
OverSoul, Higher Self, all of the embodiments (past, present
& future), and to the highest level of what we were calling
the integral part of the Soul Group that can be identified as
your specific "vertical soul hierarchy." All of that,
collectively, is the Core Soul. For most (or many) people, that
is still in a fragmented state.
. . . Thank you. And [Joanna]'s
next question is: "Could you provide more specific information
about Soul Assignments?"
Yes, and we will begin
by reiterating that Soul
Assignments are properly assignments WITH--not TO. That includes not being assigned
TO a specific god. You're assigned here WITH
Yahweh, or you're assigned here WITH some other god, or whatever--not
And so when one part of a vertical soul hierarchy, a Soul Group,
or whatever, "gets too big for its britches," then
we have the Yahweh phenomenon. The Yahweh phenomenon is that
one part feels that it is above the others and makes the others
subservient to it--for its own pleasure, for its own sense of
power, or whatever other issues there are. The reality is that
Beings are on assignment WITH other parts of their vertical soul
hierarchy and that they are all interdependent.
When we gave as an example
that our [Joanna] is on assignment on the Earth with Pallas
Athena, in that lineage, we were saying that Athena properly,
in understanding the relationship of the parts to the Whole,
can be no greater than the part that is struggling the most.
She can be no greater than the fragment that still hasn't come
back to the Whole. Athena, as a Being, understands that. Yahweh,
as a Being, in the past did not.
This is why, people are told
again and again by the Ascended Masters tht they consider you
heroes and that you are actually standing beside St. Germain,
for example, laughing affectionately as you, down here, have
no clue that you are standing with St. Germain as another aspect
of yourself. That is an example of the appropriate understanding
of your relationship to those Beings whom you assume are higher
than you are.
You had asked what the appropriate Divine
Guide for you would be. We don't believe we told you that the
word "God" just means "good" in Anglo-Saxon,
which is where the word came from [in the English language].
It just means "good." That's it--not male, not female.
It doesn't mean that there's only ONE. It just means "good"--"the
One of the things that's
coming up now as you discuss Soul Assignments is, for me, something
that I've been working on: pre-embodiment agreements. I'm assuming
that Soul Assignment has entered into pre-embodiment agreement
with others to work out or to be or to do something. Is
yes. But understand that when you say "pre-embodiment"
what we would say is "between embodiments" because
there are many more
than one aspect of you between incarnations. Reincarnation is
not successive; it's simultaneous. There are a bunch of aspects of you that are between
lives and then deciding what their next embodiments are going
to be--all simultaneously. So it's more complex because reincarnation
is not linear--it's simultaneous. Everything that happens to
one of you happens to all of you at the same time.
S: Okay. And Soul Assignments would be the mass of all
that I am?
. . . and all tha [Joanna]
And the resonance
of the entire existences of what our [Joanna] has called "vertical
So I'm finding that it's
more complex than the two simple words: Soul Assignment.
Yes. It's not just
you , singularly, here on Earth in this embodiment. All of the
aspects of you --past, present & future or Earth, 3rd-dimensional,
other-dimensional, other-planes, higher- dimensional versions
of you (which oftentimes, but not always, can be considered future
versions of you)--all of those together have a certain resonance
and a certain assignment with the highest member of that group.
It goes on, "up and up and up."
Is the highest the "Divine
The highest member of
your Soul Assignment group would be your highest Divine Guide.
Then, at the really high levels, all are related to Source Creator,
but Source Creator does not have the ability directly to communicate
with people at this level in 3rd-dimensional embodiment.
Well, this is like the
last time we talked about "the chain of command" and
you said it's more a "chain of communication." So is
that what you're talking about?
Yes. That's right.
Your highest Divine Guide (being the highest member of your Soul
Assignment group), can communicate with you . . . we won't even
say "directly." It can communicate with you energetically
in a general sort of way, because it's communicating to every
aspect of that Soul Assignment "mass," as you put it,
at one time: sending love, sending almost like energies of questions
(question energies, like "How are you doing?") [laughs]
"How are you all doing?" But very generically--not
specifically, as in the conversation we're having with you. So,
depending on the "expertise" or the absorption of energetic
values that you call wisdom gained in the many lifetimes (past,
present and future), according to that expertise, members "just
above" you [laughs] . . . this is hard to describe because
it's not literal . . . their expertise is going to determine
whether you get your Divine Guide's messages clearly, directly
and specifically. They're the translators down the chain
of communication. But it's like the telephone game: People are
sitting in a line, and the first person whispers something very
fast into the ear of the next person, and the next, and so on
[laughs], and by the time it gets to the last person it doesn't
resemble at all what was said to the first person! That's oftentimes
[laughs] I don't know
why, but this isn't real confidence-building in me. It makes
me wonder, again, who the heck's in charge?
Well, here's the good news: The communication
is bi-directional. The clearer you are at this end as the anchor
in 3rd Dimension--the consciousness anchoring being, the anchor
in 3rd-dimensional consciousness--the clearer you get in your
understanding, the more clearly you can send back questions about
what you need, the reality of your Soul Assignment and whatever.
When you have these questions that are not just intellectual
but they're from your Spirit (they're from your Spiritual Body,
your heart chakra), the integrated consciousness, then you're
apt to get more of what you need "down here" that will
help all aspects of you come into more wholeness.
You can actually teach
your Higher Self to be a better communicator, and this is exactly
what our [Joanna] does with us! Our work with her is just as much for our benefit
as it is for hers. Her being our anchor in 3rd Dimension and
the highest consciousness and such a great communicator, she
teaches us how to communicate better with her and to communicate
what she needs "higher" than we are.
And then you would pass
on the request higher than you are?
Exactly. And then
all connect more clearly and more fully. This is the mechanism
and why we desire it. We are not trying to pat ourselves on the
back at how great we are, better than other Higher Selves at
doing this, but you can probably see from the people in your
environment how well their Higher Selves are doing, or not, in
communicating with them.
Well, yes. There's a lot
of people walking around in a fog. I mean, not that I'm not.
But they just seem to be absolutely lost.
But, again, we have
said that this is bi-directional, so it also depends on the consciousness
embodied how much it desires to go the other direction and communicate
because the "High Self" and the embodied consciousness
teach each other. This is the appropriate relationship--not that
the Higher Self is telling the embodied entity what to do all
Right, which is what you
said being in a free-will state.
Right. So in the ideal
situation, the Higher Self is listening and learning from the
various incarnational expressions that it is responsible for.
(1/6/02 session, continued)
So [Joanna's] Soul Group
S: . . . because
I was wondering if you could measure it on one hand or two. [laughs]
MELORA: [laughs] This is very brilliant on
the part of the guide of one of the two members of our [Joanna's]
Soul Group, meaning this wing of her Soul Group. He said
that we could be termed as residing in Classical Greek times
in the body as females, as priestesses, and so forth. That wing
of the Soul Group is what we termed as Melora. (Ora
means "gold" in Greek.)
So you are a grouping--
We are a wing
of the much, much larger Soul Group, so our group consciousness
could be considered one wing, if you will, of the much larger
Soul Assignment group.
you in contact with the other wing?
MELORA: At the Athena level, yes.
S: So Athena
really can access the other wing?
then she could pass that information to [Joanna]?
Would that be helpful
or would it be overwhelming?
We wouldn't be able
to do that right now, but we will be able to do that, yes. So
we are our [Joanna's] point of access, if you will, to that source,
Athena, as the highest member of that Soul Assignment that can
contact our [Joanna] through us.
there are things out there, just like the writing on the mountain
for the Jews--there are things out there that [[Joanna]] would
not be able to comprehend at this time?
MELORA: . . . because that is not her lineage.
She is not of the Yahweh lineage, so she wouldn't be able to
access that because that is not encoded in the etheric DNA of
any members of her Soul Assignments or lineage.
No, I mean from you.
The wing that you are . . . there would be other wings, but if
Athena has access to them, it's possible that the information
would not be appropriate for [Joanna] at this time.
That is true, but she will be given higher and higher access
to that information as she allows that merging that we were describing.
And do you have questions for yourself?
I wondered about something
I saw regarding the Jews in concentration camps and the Nazis.
And then there was a sort of flash and a shimmering, and I saw
them all laughing. I got that same feeling with Mohammed Atta,
one of those pilots who hit the Twin Towers. Again, like that
whole group, they got to laughing at the whole "game."
I wondered if that's a cosmic joke.
you see Mohammed Atta laughing, it is more that . . . you know
how you laugh when you go, "Gosh! I should have seen this
all along"?--not laughing as in joking but more like, "I
can't believe that I fell for that" or "I can't believe
that I did this." But at the level out of embodiment, where
you come to terms with your incarnational "mistakes"
. . .your soul education. In that sense.
Is there any thing else
that you would like to say to [Joanna]?
There was this unfortunate soul who e-mailed her and claimed
to be the embodiment of "The Mother" on the Earth.
When we told our [Joanna] that this was not true, and our [Joanna]
did a soul clearance on her, our [Joanna] made the mistake of
telling her that she did a soul clearance, and this person e-mailed
back and said that our [Joanna] was going to be damned to hell
for having the gall to clear The Mother. Our [Joanna] e-mailed
back and said, "The intensity of your rage exposes you as
There was one thing that this
person said to our [Joanna] in a phone conversation that was
frustrating to our [Joanna] because she could never get this
person to get to the point. The statement that this person made
that has haunted our [Joanna] is that in working with us, Melora,
our [Joanna] has forced us to descend and is holding us back
from our Ascension or our evolution. This is preposterous.
as Melora, make our own choices according to our free will and
our love of our [Joanna] and our desire to retrieve lost soul
aspects . . . what would be our version of soul retrieval: our
desire to come into alignment with Athena in totality, our desire
to help our [Joanna] in coming to Oneness consciousness, and
so forth. We are not limited by some person's deluded notions,
or jelousy or envy of what our [Joanna] is able to accomplish.
That is our answer.
That's very good. Um,
who is above Athena? Is it a name we would recognize?
us a moment. Athena came from another universe . It is not in
your lexicon what Being would be above her.
And so she was really
the representative of that universe on this Earth?
would say the only representative of that Universe who
was embodied on your Earth.
The only one?
How lonely that must have
and why it is so difficult for Athena, in coming into incarnation
and creating fragments, and so forth, who are separate in consciousness
and seek reunion, as our [Joanna] does. This has been a very
difficult dilemma and challenge for the Athena Being, in choosing
to come here. This is the very heart, the very core, of what
we're trying to resolve not only for our [Joanna] but with our
[Joanna]'s help, as an embodied "anchor" in this work.
We need her as a conscious, embodied anchor to help us to complete
this process with her and for her and for us. Do you understand?
I understand, and it struck
me . . . almost feeling that I am in the same lonely position.
It may not be; it may have to do with all sorts of things.
and this is true. We'll use this as an example: Athena's being
the only Being from that universe to embody on Earth would make
it understandable, would it not, that we would need the physical
embodiment most highly attuned to this truth, to this Soul Group,
to this alignment, and the embodiment that has the highest probability
of anchoring this process. That would be our [Joanna]. There
were other embodiments, and there will be future embodiments
that may not even have this consciousness. And so what happens
is that as our [Joanna] is "successful" in this process,
then that affects her future embodiments and the probabilities
for this retrieval "back" to the Athena Being of the
aspects that became separated through karmic embodiment on this
Earth. The loneliest of all, in that sense, is Athena herself.
That would be the same for
you and for whoever is your highest being in your Soul Assignment,
in your lineage, who can still communicate with you through intercessory
beings. So if you're feeling lonely, you can imagine the vastness
of loneliness for the many lost aspects that your Highest Being
of you--your exalted you--must feel.
Do you know who that is?
us a moment. The closest that we can come to (and, again, do
not take this literally) relates to your interest in shamanism.
Whatever original, but now evolved, notion of Great Spirit that
Native American people held and experienced and interacted with,
that would be the closest.
Well, it is, and I know
I have a real connection with the feline races and the dolphins
and bears. But I wondered why, in what we're doing here today,
I was chosen to help [Joanna].
us a moment. There is a relationship of resonance that has to
do with being willing to come to Earth and embody to help people.
But this takes many forms. The Christos Consciousness, as an
example, is to sacrifice--to make great, sweeping changes in
consciousness on Earth. This is not necessarily the same Soul
lineage as another group that came to help people. There are
certain specialties, if you will. If you examine Native American
races incarnationally or energetically--not just what you look
like or whether you were born of a tribe but what you carry energetically
because of previous incarnations--there is a resonance with Great
Spirit. The connection with the Earth and with Earth creatures
and the notion of guardianship of the Earth--that would
be your more specific resonance issue or expression. Do you see?
I do. I get the word "stewardship"
of the Earth, and I like that. It feels very good. Again, I was
wondering about the context of working with you and [Joanna],
but we're not necessarily of the same Soul Group?
That's correct. You could say that you have come together almost
as a committee does, so that when you work together you're able
to do more than if you work alone, as we believe this session
has proved. [laughs]
Yes. It's been very nice.
thank you so much for giving your time and energy to our [Joanna]
in this process.
Is there anything else
you can think of that you would like on this tape?
us a moment. Yes. We would encourage our [Joanna] to remember
(as she made a mental note this morning) of the miracle of answers
that can occur when she asks very clear questions. In the process
of e-mailing you and in the process of detailing the questions
on paper first, then typing them in an e-mail message to you,
she solidified in her consciousness those questions, and the
answers came flooding in. If she wishes to have answers that
she might not necessarily wish to put up on the website (but
we're saying we want people to see this information that we have
brought forth today), for her personally in her process of merging
with us and contacting the Athena Divinity as she so intensely
desires--the very personal relationship--she can still do it
in this way. It helps to set down the questions the way she did,
so that they're not just nebulously flying around, so that they're
set down in her consciousness this clearly.
That's good advice for
Thank you, because I think
that applies to me also.
thank you, Melora.
We need to withdraw because
of our [Joanna's] getting over this upper-respiratory thing,
and we wish not to tax her body further. We thank you again,
[S.], and you are most blessed. We are most blessed by
our work with you today, and we are Melora.
