TOWER OF LIGHT
and we are Melora, and we would like to talk you through a meditation
called "The Tower of Light." This is one of the most
delicious, and brief, meditations you can do to charge up your
energy in the morning and to put a fully protective shield around
yourself. Are you all willing to learn this? [All assent.]
Good, and if you would, please, stand. Is there anyone here who's
not particularly visual? It's more kinesthetic. [One person
affirmed that she's more kinesthetic.] Okay. It's primarily
visual, but you will probably be able to feel even more interesting
things than the others.
Now please take some big, deep in-breaths as is comfortable for
you. Don't force it. Make the out-breath go all the way out;
the in-breath, all the way in. Let your arms dangle comfortably
at your sides. We would like you to visualize a beautiful, blue
light surrounding your body and permeating your body, so that
it's about 9 inches out-in front and behind and all around-and
about 16 inches above your head and about 16 inches below your
feet. You'll find out the reason for this in a moment.
Feeling it is important too. One
kind of channeling is also clairsentience--"clear
sensing," and so try to feel that blue light and the frequency
of that. It's not as dark as indigo. It will be your own particular
frequency that you like and that will come to you naturally.
Are you all surrounded by that ellipsoid of blue light? Good.
about 16 inches above your head, within that blue but not touching
your crown, is a beautiful globe of brilliant white light that
is like burning magnesium. Are you able to visualize this there?
Now feel showering down out of that globe of white light (which
happens to be your Higher Self) that globe, showering little
specks of that burning magnesium all down into the center of
this ellipsoid. Are some of you feeling that as well as
seeing it? Good.
out of that same white, burning-magnesium-type, light, beautiful
silvery sparkles are showering down until they fill with those
white snowflake-type particles the entire inside, so that only
a blue outline surrounds that ellipsoid. Tell us when that is
happening for you. That should be feeling pretty good right now.
This is the power of Light. Know that this is protection. Know
that this connects you directly with your Higher Self--and fills
you and rejuvenates you with life force and, again, through a
bi-directional communication with your Higher Self. Enjoy that
for another moment. Then just let that fade from your vision
and experience, knowing that it has not faded in reality.
you can tear yourself away, please be seated again. Good, and
we suggest you do this in the morning--if you remember: especially
in the morning--and, if you wish, at night right before you go
to sleep, surround yourself with this beautiful, exquisite energy.
It's one of the most powerful protections you can do. [End
PERKS & PITFALLS OF CHANNELING
you can imagine, we would appreciate this within our experience
with our Jyoti as this has been happening for what you term "years"--about
13 of your years. As she mentioned before, she links with
us in consciousness. Our work with her has depended upon calibrating
bi-directionally from 6th-7th dimension, where we exist as a
group consciousness, perfectly balanced between "male"
and "female." (We chose the name Melora because
of its tonal resonance and to remind our Jyoti of her life in
Classical Greece. Melora, in Greek, means "Golden Apple."
You have Helen of Troy, and so forth, and our Jyoti was singing
and playing the part of Helen of Troy in a Greek amphitheater
at that time.) Oftentimes when you ask a guide, "What
is your name?" and you hear "Kalua-lua," or whatever,
it's not really that being's "name." Rather the sounds/syllables
represent that being's signature energy, as Melora stands
for our signature energy.
it is our Jyoti's agreement at the Soul level with us that in
this process of collaboration with us, she is to grow spiritually
because she is consciously on an Ascension path. Therefore, one
of the aspects of channeling that we wish to discuss with you
this evening is that if
you're channeling "Zork from Planet X," who's an entity
outside of your vertical Soul lineage--or who is not closely
aligned with your Soul Hierarchy--then chances are, you will
not experience soul growth in channeling such an entity. Information
may be brought through you that is quite amazing, but that information
might still remain only at the intellectual level, and information
does not automatically equal wisdom. Do you understand?
we have said, wisdom
represents those value points--what our Jyoti calls "spiritual
brownie points [laughs]--that you earn in a lifetime by
learning whatever that lesson is--and that goes with you when
you go through transition. That goes with you from embodiment
to embodiment. Metaphysical knowledge, itself, does not go with
you. This is
one of the deepest, most profound differences between sheer knowledge
and Soul wisdom that you experience as a result of growth: facing
the challenges you chose to face when you came into embodiment
and passing with flying colors, as it were. Now that kind
of wisdom, and that kind of growth, depends on a heart-spirit
connection and not on some kind of mental monster (your mental
body) who has controlled you all your lifetime and maybe even
in other embodiments.
Jyoti would prefer we not say this, but it is totally appropriate.
(She thinks it will sound too harsh.) What we would like to say
is: You know the computer term "Garbage in; garbage out"?
are one's motives in wanting to channel? Are they because of feeling inferior--having
a lack of self-esteem and therefore over-compensating by being
on a power trip and wanting to look really cool? Garbage in .
. . Or is it with a desire to grow and to know at levels that
reach beyond levels of what you're able to read in books, what
you're able to learn in a workshop? This has to do with your
transaction with your Self as a being: "Self-realization."
other factor about garbage in, garbage out is: Who are you really
In one of the handouts that we promised our Jyoti we would discuss,
we show how most
of mass consciousness is in the Astral Plane, or what you also refer
to as 4th dimension. The problem with this, as you can imagine,
is that you have all the news, the politics. You have pornography.
You have all of the ways people can numb themselves with drugs
and other addictions of all sorts-and really all of the worst,
kind of in the middle of the Astral Plane.
the lower octave of the Astral Plane you have earthbound human
spirits who are looking toward you--to live to you and attach
to you instead of going to the Light, to the higher octave of
4th dimension, where you approach Christ Consciousness, and where
you are heart centered and love-centered. Thus, what happens
to channelers whose motivations are not of the highest is that
they become vulnerable immediately to the earthbound spirits
who would love to live through them, drink a lot of alcohol because
they died before they could drink as much alcohol as they wanted,
or whatever. You have negative ETs; you have ghosts and poltergeists;
you have Reptilians.
have all sorts of unsavory, creepy entities who would like to
speak through you and make you look good enough that they get
the tradeoff of . . . keeping you from Ascending in consciousness.
They keep you at a level of fear; they keep you at a level of
lower-vibrational priorities, and that's their food. It's energetic
food for them. This
is why so few actually
as our Jyoti puts it: "How does
anyone ever get out of here?!" The density is so great and
the path is so difficult.
this is one of the great pitfalls of channeling: So many entities
are stepping up to that microphone, and because Earth is a free-will
zone--whatever you choose, even though your angels are saying,
"Oh, no! Oh, nooooo! She's not going to do that. Please!"--they
have to honor your free will, and there you go. You've got Zork
from Planet X, and you're not going to experience Soul growth.
You may be given some accurate information, but it is coming
from a level that is not going to help the people for whom you're
channeling information and it is not going to benefit you at
the Soul level.
your High Self and you have a really good bi-directional communication,
and if your High Self really is interested in what is of benefit
for your growth, and so forth, your High Self will be as clear
and direct with you as possible. It's what you usually term your
inner guidance. Now, oftentimes you have inner guidance but you
don't listen to it. Right? [laughs] The more you listen
to your inner guidance--and, again, this is about discernment
coming from your mental body, and it's about something you want
but something you don't actually need, you can always circumvent
the messages that are coming through and then somehow pretend
they're coming from your inner guidance.
takes great self-discipline-it takes great commitment and
great effort to keep moving upward, as you put it, and not
to let distractions over here--pettiness and social pressure
to be less than you can be and all the other things that have
held people back century after century, era after era: the church,
the monarchy. Fear of death is a major one for most people, and
so most religious say: This is it, and so of course you're going
to be afraid to die if you believe there's only one lifetime.
we have news for you: Most of those people whom you think of
as in the Old Testament times and even in the New Testament times
were fully cognizant of reincarnation. The Nicean Council, in
about 300 A.D., just nicely got rid of all references to reincarnation
in the scriptures that they could find, except for a couple of
peculiar ones. We wonder why, for example, they didn't get rid
of the one where Jesus was asked: "Are you Elijah"
(the Old Testament prophet)?
are we talking about this? It's because lifetime after lifetime
you are born, and before you're able to speak you remember, in
some conceptualized way, who you are and where you came from.
That remembrance slowly fades as you start to become verbal.
Thus, the biggest challenge for you as Souls--especially for
those in embodiment-lifetime after lifetime--is remembering who
you really are. This figures in directly to processes of channeling.
[What Melora did not make explicit here is that she considers
receiving information clairvoyantly, clairaudiently, clairsentiently,
etc., actually to be channeling.]
