[Question] Will Michael please comment on Drunvalo Melchizedek’s claims and the flower of life seminar about mass ascension into Christ Consciousness around 2012?
[Michael Entity] We see this as yet another fantastical, yet attractive, interpretation of a rather insignificant, non-event for the sake of emotional and material capitalization. We say this as a matter of basic fact, and not to cast a negative light on such things. It is quite satisfying to many to have an imaginary end-point toward which to focus personal evolution, and 2012 has been co-opted, interpreted, and hung out as a banner of warning or hope by nearly every angle of spirituality. Simple questioning and investigation can often clarify these ominous predictions to show that there is no validity, so when one is quite willing to “play along” with these scenarios, one has determined that there is some kind of value in that game, or at the very least, a resonance to internal fears that are in need of addressing.
As long as calendars exist along with Young and Mature Souls within a population, there will be impending doomsday dates to impose dramatic descriptions for undramatic shifts.
[Question] Does that mean “ascended masters” did not create a Christ Consciousness grid around the earth and that there will not be a group “awakening”?
[Michael Entity] We would not be so conclusive as to say “no,” but we will say that this interpretation and imagery is rather embellished. Some fragments find theatrical imagery appealing, and the personifications help some to open to support from non-physical guides.
From many mythologies, templates are generated from the imagery and then fragments can use those to attract and funnel legitimate support, with entities and fragments playing the role offered by the template.
For instance, there is no “Zeus,” or “Goddess” per se, but one can use that template as a funnel for Astral fragments and entities to work through. The “ascended masters” are another network of templates that are used by multiple Astral fragments and entities. “Archangel Michael,” for example, is not the same source for every group who works with that template.
These templates act as accessible, larger-than-life roles within a fragment’s life that helps one to connect or resonate to support and forces beyond the immediately-tangible. Even the Judeo-Christian “God” is merely a mythological template. We, ourselves, used the template of “The Sun God” in the Oracles of Delphi as a means to work with our students at the time. Once personification is involved with a non-physical teacher, or source, a template is born and up for grabs for people to use as a medium of contact with entities willing to play the role described by that template.
In some cases, that template is used as a means for housing the divided elements of the incarnated person attracted to it. For example, our own name has become a template, and some who claim to channel us simply use that template to deliver their own messages and ideas in the hopes of validating their own perceptions, sense of value, while securing an audience and using the built-in credentials.
[Question] Speaking of fantastical, yet attractive new aged teachings, does Michael consider A Course in Miracles to be a creation for the purpose of emotion and material capitalization?
[Michael Entity] We will say that there is personally-valuable information within Drunvalo Melchizedek’s and A Course in Miracle’s teachings, regardless of the validity of the information, and the use of highly-profitable marketing tactics. We merely responded with a random comment, as requested, and we do see the theatrics of 2012 to be purely for marketing, as that year has no significance in terms of any Mayan Calendar calculations.
[Question] In Michael’s observation/experience are the dramatic descriptions used for the polarity shifts and the earth wobble simply exaggerations for undramatic shifts?
[Michael Entity] Observations of potential, impending shifts, such as what has come to be known as “global warming,” or “earth wobble,” or “polarity shifts,” meteor impacts, shifts in mass consciousness, etc, are valid to some degree, however, these kinds of events are not on a schedule that can be marked in any way that is predictable at this point, and most of these are shifts that would take longer than any single lifetime.
We will add, though, that because of the amount of emphasis on 2012 by such a large mass of consciousness, we do see a high potential for “something” to be significant, though it would most likely be interpreted differently for different groups, depending on their view of reality.
