How can we help the people of Myanmar?

Question: I want to ask about the Myanmar situation. Myanmar’s military took over the government by a coup on February 1 [2021]. The country’s ruling party the National League for Democracy (NLD) were deposed by the Tatmadaw, [armed forces of Burma]. The Myanmar’s military proclaimed a year-long state of emergency and a commander-in-chief of the defense services Min Aung Hlaing became the leader. In Myanmar people could not accept this and they launched civil disobedience movement and protested this. More than 700 people have been killed by security forces. Myanmar people are asking for help from international societies, but international societies cannot provide proper help and support for Myanmar. We understood that China and Russia are supporting the military. As South Korea experienced a similar situation in 1980, some Korean people and societies have been trying to help the Myanmar people. Also, the ascended master students in Korea have been calling for help on the Myanmar situation, but we do not see the proper solution for this situation. Can you provide some comments for the Myanmar situation? What can the Myanmar people and international societies do for Myanmar and what can the ascended masters do for the Myanmar situation?


Answer from the Ascended Master Saint Germain through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2021 Webinar for Russia – Overcoming the consciousness of Superiority and the Sense of Being Unwhole, Traumatized and Focused Outside Oneself.

Well, it is clear that this is an example of what you see in other places around the world as well. Where a nation has had a period with democracy, and all of a sudden there is a movement that seeks to reverse democracy or undermine democracy, or replace the democracy with a more totalitarian form of a rule.

It is a pattern you see in various nations, as you point out, and it is unfortunately something that can happen especially when a population is not quite ready to take full responsibility for themselves and their country, and therefore create a functioning democracy. As we have said, it takes time when you have been under totalitarian rule for some time, it takes time for the people to adjust and be ready for democracy. This is what then can allow the dark forces to use certain people in that country to undermine or get rid of democracy.

It should, of course, not be overlooked that this has happened during the Corona crisis. Where the dark forces certainly, and even the Myanmar military people to some degree, were aware that because so many countries are so occupied with the internal crisis of the pandemic, there would not be as much of a response from the international community, as they otherwise would have been. Naturally, there is these undercurrents and it is clear also that there are certain nations that also would like to see democracy falter, and they are also involved in this movement.

But the real solution is, of course, a raising of the collective consciousness of the people. And if you feel inclined to help the people of Myanmar, you can use our invocations and call for the raising of the consciousness, for the binding of the dark forces. And you can also, of course, make calls that the international community will be more aware of the situation and will be more willing to actually do something about it. They have imposed some sanctions, but more could, naturally, be done. I’m not here talking about some military intervention but to do certainly more than they are already doing to put pressure on the military regime.

Beyond that, there is not that much you can do as ascended master students. You need to allow some time to pass until the equation somehow shifts. And either the people become more determined to protest or the military realize the futility of what they’re doing, and put some kind of democratic government back into place. This would be the best outcome with peaceful means. And this is, of course, what you can make the calls for: a peaceful resolution to the situation.

What was so special about Atlantis? 

Question: Why do most of the ascended masters in this dispensation seem to have a connection with Atlantis? Or is it that all ascended masters have a connection to Atlantis? What made Atlantis more special to the Masters than other large continents like the Lemuria, Mu, etc.


Answer from Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2021 Webinar for Russia – Overcoming the consciousness of Superiority and the Sense of Being Unwhole, Traumatized and Focused Outside Oneself.

Well, actually, I do not sense that the most of the Masters in this dispensation have any special connection to Atlantis, at least they do not talk about it. They do not talk that much about Atlantis. There was much more talk about Atlantis and Lemuria in the Summit Lighthouse, for example.

I do not think they have any particular connection to these past civilizations. That is not my sense of it. And I do not sense they want to comment on it beyond that. It is not that Atlantis was more special, it is just a more recent one. Therefore, probably the one we can most easily learn from.

The collective consciousness behind the Coronavirus crisis

Question: Please comment on the nature of the collective consciousness that precipitated the Coronavirus crisis, as well as the subsequent economic crisis and loss of freedoms.


Answer from the Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2021 Webinar for Russia – Overcoming the consciousness of Superiority and the Sense of Being Unwhole, Traumatized and Focused Outside Oneself.

This is a complex topic because there is not just one aspect of the collective consciousness.

We have given some comments earlier that relate to this, but it is a very complex picture. Basically, you can say that there are too many people on earth who have not been willing to grow to a higher level. They have had the opportunity to grow to a higher level, and in an ideal scenario, they would already have grown to that higher level. But they have not been willing to do so. They have held on to their present state of life, the state in their country, their own consciousness.

This can cause that every once in a while there will be a manifestation of some disaster, or some calamity that people can no longer ignore. It is so severe that they cannot ignore it. This can happen with natural disasters, it can happen with war, and it can happen with contagious disease.

This is the overall cause of this. And if you look around the world, you will see that the way certain countries have reacted to this situation shows a lot about where that country is at in terms of their collective consciousness. What they have not transcended and what they need to transcend, in order to come to a higher level.

One of the things that has become obvious, is, of course, the healthcare system of the country, how well is it equipped to handle a crisis like this. And this shows you where there is a need of improvement, and where many countries could and ideally should have already improved this. You can also look at the response of how they are handling the crisis in terms of shutting their countries down, restricting the freedom of movement, and other things. You can see how this is done, what attitude it is a done with.

You can also look at how other people are responding to this. For example, you can see in the United States how there has been a large segment of the population who had first completely denied the existence of the virus, the existence of the crisis, or deny that it was a serious situation. You can see people who refused to go with masks, some who will refuse to take vaccine, and so on. This also shows you where these people are at in consciousness, especially in terms of their social awareness. And their willingness to help others, to protect others to do their part in not spreading a disease like this.

You could also say that part of what needed to happen, and what ideally should already have happened in the world, is that there would be the emergence of a more social awareness that the world is now more connected than ever. And what happens in one country affects what happens everywhere else. And there needs to be a greater solidarity and willingness for the more well-to-do countries to help other countries.

You see that this is again an opportunity where you can see that some countries are still dealing with the crisis in their own country, but they are nevertheless willing to reach out to certain other countries where the crisis is even worse. And this is of course what ideally should happen on a much larger scale, where there is more that sense that all human beings are connected, and there are certain things that affect all of us, and we all need to be a part of providing the solution for this, not just taking care of our own people.

The desire to be special 

Question: Is the desiring to be special a perversion related to the unique individuality facet of each spark of us? In other words, has that quality been inverted into a desire to be special?


Answer from the Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2021 Webinar for Russia – Overcoming the consciousness of Superiority and the Sense of Being Unwhole, Traumatized and Focused Outside Oneself.

You can say that the unique individuality can be perverted as the desire to be special. But this is something that happens as a result of the manipulation of the fallen beings. The fallen beings, of course, have fallen, which means they have blocked their unique spiritual individuality. They cannot access their I AM Presence. They are the ones who desire to be special in this world, and they are doing everything they can to set themselves up in this position where they are special as seen by other people.

In order to do this, they of course, have to put everybody else down. The fallen beings are in duality. In duality, everything is relative. You can only be special in relation to others who are not as special as you are.

This is not the case for your unique spiritual individuality. It is unique, so you are not special in relation to others. You are special in relation to your I AM Presence. It is your I AM Presence that makes you special. There is no need to compare yourself to others when you are not in duality. Once the fallen beings manifest or manipulate you into going into duality, then you also cannot see clearly your spiritual identity, you cannot be content with your uniqueness, and therefore, some people go into seeking to be special in this world.

This can especially happen for avatars because avatars come to earth being more spiritually evolved than many of the original inhabitants of earth, so many avatars come to earth with a sense that they are not like most human beings, they are different, perhaps they are more advanced, they are special compared to them.

This is what the fallen beings are very skilled at taking advantage of, to get avatars to go into this sense of spiritual pride, where they are so intent on being special that they actually pervert it and therefore, they go on the false path. They go on the left-handed path, which is where you seek to use your psychic abilities to produce certain phenomena that make you seem special on earth.

There are, of course, also fallen beings who find a spiritual path. What you see is that there can be, in some spiritual movements, there can be a certain group of people who are a mixture of fallen beings and avatars. But they all have this desire to be special, and they are sometimes reinforcing each other in that dynamic.

There are certain gurus, and I will not mention particular names, but there are certain gurus who set themselves up as being very special. They attract to them a group of people who feel special because they are following this special guru. And this causes both the guru and followers to create this self-reinforcing spiral, where they become more and more trapped in spiritual pride.

This has even happened to ascended master organizations after we no longer had a sponsored messenger for that organization and therefore could not give direct dictations. And our organization can quickly be taken over by people who have this desire to be special, and therefore want to set themselves up as the leaders who cannot be gainsaid by the members.

You can see how this can cause certain students to actually reject an ascended master teaching, or suddenly decide that now the messenger is no longer a legitimate messenger because they are so superior that they can tell what the ascended masters should or should not say, will or will not say, who the real masters are and who are not. You can see how a group of people can then go into this spiral of spiritual pride that you cannot help them out of because they are not willing to see it. And therefore, they must simply be allowed to outlive it until they have had enough of that experience, and they realize it is not getting them where they want to go.

Naturally, we of the ascended masters have no condemnation or judgment of people who do this. We simply realize that when people react this way, we cannot help them, and therefore, we must let them run their course until they decide to come back to the ascended masters. In which case we, of course, welcome them back and seek to help them as best we can.

Can ascended masters fall? 

Question:  Is it possible that ascended masters can fall as Lucifer has fallen? Is it possible that the ascended masters distort their qualities, and that the light they have turns into darkness?


Answer from Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2021 Webinar for Russia – Overcoming the consciousness of Superiority and the Sense of Being Unwhole, Traumatized and Focused Outside Oneself.

I think the masters have answered that question before, and the answer is no. Once you have ascended, you cannot fall.

This was quite a confusion in the Summit Lighthouse, where they also talked about fallen angels, and that some of them even fell in heaven. You know, the Book of Revelation: “Oh Lucifer how has thou fallen from heaven.” But in our teachings, it has been explained that it was in a previous sphere that had not ascended, that the fallen beings fell.

How can I manifest greater abundance?

Question: How do I transcend the mentality of living from paycheck to paycheck and struggling financially? How do I accept that I am worth God’s abundance that is not just for others, that God also loves me enough to give me his abundance?


 Answer from the Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2021 Webinar for Russia – Overcoming the consciousness of Superiority and the Sense of Being Unwhole, Traumatized and Focused Outside Oneself.

Well, I suggest that you, instead of thinking that it is God that has to give you abundance, is that you have the ability to manifest it or attract it to you. And in order to do this, you need to overcome the blockages in your own psychology that cause you to reject abundance.

And this is, of course, again, as we have said so many times in answer to questions, there are certain separate selves that relate to your attitude towards money, towards yourself and your own worthiness, to receive money, to have money, perhaps as many people you have blockages from past lives, where you think that it is unspiritual to have money, that as a spiritual person, you should not want money, you should not want material goods, and so on. These are all separate selves that you need to uncover, and just let them die. And when you uncover and let these selves go, then the abundance can manifest.

Now you need to realize, of course, that there is a certain industry out there that wants to make people believe that if they just follow a few easy steps, and buy these books and take these courses, then they can manifest anything they want. But you cannot manifest anything you want.

Even if you have overcome certain selves, you are still living in a certain situation, certain countries, certain societies. There is a very complex equation where you live, and you might have chosen to live there for particular spiritual reasons. It may be impossible for you to manifest great wealth in a certain situation. That means that you can either accept this or you can move.

But even resolving the selves will not necessarily mean that you can manifest greater wealth than is possible in your practical situation. You can, of course, perhaps look at people that are doing this, but then they are using unspiritual, illegitimate methods to do so. And that is of course not what you want to do if you are concerned about your spiritual growth.

About manifestation techniques

How do I focus on manifesting what I want inside myself so that it can materialize itself in the physical? I notice that when I want something, I keep looking for it outside. I read about how one needs to feel as if they already possess what they want to remain in a state of gratitude for having what they desire already, before it can manifest itself. Can the ascended masters tell more about this technique and teach us how to get what we desire?


Answer from the Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2021 Webinar  for Russia – Overcoming the consciousness of Superiority and the Sense of Being Unwhole, Traumatized and Focused Outside Oneself.

Well, this is, of course, in alignment with the previous question where, yes, you can use the tools or the technique you outline by putting yourself in a state of mind where you are feeling as if you already have it, and this can often be the last step that pulls something from the emotional realm to the physical.

One of the real blocks to people manifesting what they desire is that in many cases, they already have a certain vision of this in the identity or mental realm. But they have conflicting emotions that prevent it from coming into the physical because, of course, it needs to go through the emotional body to get into the physical.

By working with your emotions, and creating the feeling that you already have it, then it can break that blockage in the emotional body so that things can manifest physically. There are techniques that can work, but the question is, again, is it what you really want? How does it align with your divine plan and your spiritual growth? This is where you need to do what I said in the previous answer, where you uncover these selves that would be a detraction, or distraction, on your path.

What do you want to manifest in this lifetime?

Question: The Scriptures say: “Ask and you shall receive.” I have been listening to New Age gurus who also teach how to manifest what we want. My question is, how do I manifest what I want? How do I let go of my selfish desires so I can manifest what I want? How do I know if my desires are in harmony with the divine laws?


Answer from the Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2021 Webinar for Russia – Overcoming the consciousness of Superiority and the Sense of Being Unwhole, Traumatized and Focused Outside Oneself.

I am quite well aware that there is what we might call an entire industry out there of New Age gurus who are supposedly teaching people how to manifest whatever they want in life. I am not saying that this cannot, to some degree, work for some people, because you can use, of course, your psychic powers to manifest certain physical conditions.

But since you are open to ascended master teachings, the question really is not for you to be able to manifest anything you want, but something that works along with your spiritual goals. If your goal is to ascend after this lifetime, how important is it to manifest specific material goals? It might be important for you, in order to experience having certain conditions, for example, a nice house, so you can get over that desire, and that might be perfectly fine. That might be in alignment with your spiritual growth.

But the way to deal with this is, of course, to realize that any lower desire, any illegitimate, you might say, or non-spiritual desire comes from a separate self. By using our tools to work on these separate selves, you will be able to gradually let go of these lower desires.

When you are a spiritual person who wants to make maximum progress, and especially if this is your last lifetime, you have to realize that you might have many lower desires that you could very well fulfill in this lifetime, but they will be a distraction. They would take time, energy and resources, and it would detract you from your overall goal of spiritual growth.

You need to, as a part of your path, go through this process of taking a look at your desires, seeing when the desire comes from a separate self, and then instead of thinking you have to fulfill the desire, which might take a very long time, then you let the self die, which does not necessarily have to take a very long time, and you save a lot of time on your path.

The fear that others might imitate your work

Question: I work as a coach helping clients cultivate their intuition and attune to their heart. My fear is that my peers and those who are doing similar work in my career, would copy my coaching program, meaning I could be replaceable and might fall behind in my career. I think my spiritual energy or talent is unique even though my coaching program is similar to others. How can I focus on and cultivate my own individual uniqueness or spiritual talent to transcend my fear that others in the same field would imitate my work?


Answer from the Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2021 Webinar  for Russia – Overcoming the consciousness of Superiority and the Sense of Being Unwhole, Traumatized and Focused Outside Oneself.

Well, if you really have a unique talent, how could other people imitate it? One response to this is, of course, that if you keep developing your talent, improving yourself, you will be ahead of them anyway. Because if they imitate what you are doing now, but you are refining yourself all the time, you will stay ahead of them and still be unique.

But of course, this fear of them imitating your work comes from a separate self. What you really can do is uncover that self and let it die. You can also consider, of course, turning your coaching program into a system that you can teach to others, that they can then use for their clients, but they are following your system, perhaps even paying you a royalty on it.

How to transcend a legitimate desire

Question: Master Jesus, could you please give me some practical guidance on how to surrender and transcend a legitimate desire. I know that I cannot progress any further on my spiritual path until I am willing to surrender and transcend this legitimate desire of mine. The really tough part is that I am required to surrender and to transcend it without actually having ever experienced it in a real life. I am afraid that surrendering and transcending this desire includes but is not limited to making peace with the possibility that the manifestation of this desire of mine will not only be delayed further, but it will be denied completely for the remainder of my current embodiment. I realized that I value God so little and I am so angry when God withholds its gifts. Master Jesus, how could I possibly value God more than the gifts of God?


Answer from the Ascended Master Jesus through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2021 Webinar fir Russia – Overcoming the consciousness of Superiority and the Sense of Being Unwhole, Traumatized and Focused Outside Oneself.

It is clear that many people are in a situation where they have a certain desire. It is not an unlawful desire, it is what you might call a legitimate desire. It is not a desire that harms other people. But for practical, you might say karmic reasons if you will, it cannot be fulfilled.

Let us just as an example, take a desire to live in a big affluent house, a castle. You have a desire to have a castle. There is nothing really wrong with this desire, but you can see that this would be so expensive for you to buy a castle that it is simply beyond your economic means in this lifetime.

There are two ways to go about this. If you actually read Yogananda’s book, “Autobiography of a Yogi”, you will see that at some point, his guru took him in his finer bodies to a different realm and he manifested a castle for him, because Yogananda had this desire for such a castle. By manifesting it, his master helped him overcome the desire, which would have blocked his divine plan.

Obviously, you cannot expect this to happen by us, manifesting your desires for you. What you can do is you can go into the desire in your mind. You can imagine that you have the elaborate castle you desire. You can outpicture it, you can perhaps find pictures of what you would like, draw the picture, make a model, do whatever you have to do. You can do it all in the mind perhaps, but envision yourself, really experience yourself living in that castle. How would you feel? How would it shift your consciousness? Really go through it.

The other way to deal with this is to realize—not all can do this but many can—that you cannot do everything in life. That there are many, many things on this planet that are attractive that you would enjoy doing. But you cannot do them all because it is the nature of life that you have limited time limited space, limited resources, you only have so much attention.

This messenger, for example, has throughout his life, been aware that there are many activities on earth that he could enjoy. But he has realized that he does not have the time because you cannot do everything at once. You have to make choices. It is part of life to make choices, where you select out certain things where you say: “Yes, it would be nice to do this. I have a desire to do this. But I have other desires that are more important. And I cannot do everything at once.” As the old saying goes, “You can’t have your cake and eat it too”.

There is also a limit to how many cakes you can have, or how many cakes you can eat. You all know very well that when you are sitting in front of a table with many different dishes, you might eat a little bit of this, you might eat a little bit of that, you might eat some of that, but there comes a point where your stomach is simply full. There might still be dishes you have not tasted but you know that you need to stop now because otherwise you will be sick. You have learned to therefore surrender certain desires, sublimate certain desires, just let go of them.

In terms of the anger against God, this is a slightly different issue. This goes back to past lifetimes where you have come to adopt a view of God, created by the fallen beings. That is why you are angry; you are feeling that God is withholding gifts from you but God is not withholding anything from you.

You just need to recognize the reality of the physical octave and of your own choices, both in past lives and this life. This has created some separate selves in you that you need to use our tools to come to clarity about and then resolve them because God has nothing to do with it. It is all in your own mind. That is where it must be resolved.

This is really the essence of the spiritual path. Neither God nor other people nor outer circumstances are what influences you and your state of mind. Your state of mind is influenced exclusively by the state of your mind, by what happens in your mind. This is where the key to your freedom is. This is where you can resolve things and move on. So you can look back at this and say: “Why was this so important to me? Why was this such a big deal?” You can follow the call that I said 2000 years ago: “What is that to thee? Follow thou me.” You can say: “What is that to me, I will follow Jesus, I will go higher on the spiritual path.”

Friendship and family

Question: Beloved Mother Mary, why there are very often family members with whom we incarnate and they are practically strangers to us. And there is nothing in common with them. For example, a person may have many or several brothers and sisters, but at the same time, it is impossible to establish friendly relations with them. For some time, friendship was only in childhood and after growing up it disappeared. Or that children have an age difference of more than 14 years, and the parents want their children to get along with each other. But this does not happen. And each of them grows up alone. How do you make friends in adulthood if you’re not able to make friends with blood relatives.

Answer from the Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2021 Webinar for Russia – Overcoming the consciousness of Superiority and the Sense of Being Unwhole, Traumatized and Focused Outside Oneself.

We have given various teachings before, that in many families, it is the same people who reincarnate again and again, over different generations. The reason for this is that they have certain karmic patterns with themselves, meaning they have created these spirals in the past of conflict and the only way for them to have a chance to work it out is to reincarnate together again and again.

The problem with this is, of course, that their psychology has not changed from the last embodiment. But they might even have built a stronger momentum of animosity. This makes it very difficult for them to communicate or to be friends. It is still, for many people who are in the school of hard knocks, the only way to give them a chance to progress, because they need to go to a point where they have had enough of this and desire something else.

You do see in certain families where some of the family members are engaged in a specific pattern, but one of the children manages to stay out of it, refuses to go into it and they separate themselves from their family as soon as they can. This will in many cases mean that that person can then reincarnate outside of that group in their next lifetime. This can give progress.

It is of course correct that if you cannot make friends with your family members in childhood, it may be more difficult as an adult. This is really up to you to shift your attitude. You have an opportunity to find people that you resonate with. When you are incarnated in a family, you cannot get away from your family members but when you choose your friends as an adult, you can seek out people that you have something in common with.

The real key to escaping these karmic patterns is to work on your own psychology and to not want to change your family members but to focus on changing yourself. Then asking yourself: “What does the fact that I incarnated in this family show about what I need to resolve in my own psychology?” The wisest thing in a family that is dysfunctional or has inharmony or has some patterns is to make a deliberate decision not to focus on changing your family members. Instead to focus on changing yourself so you no longer react to your family members. You are psychologically free of them.

The mindset behind violence in America

Question: This past Monday, the governor of the state of Florida signed an anti-riot bill aimed at protecting law enforcement agencies and cracking down on protests that turn violent. It is likely partly in response to the riots in American cities last summer. The most disturbing part of this new bill is that it grants civil immunity to people who drive into protesters who are blocking the road. There has been a significant increase in mass shootings in America lately. The level of violence seems to be escalating. Elected officials should be working towards de-escalating tensions. This new bill appears to have the potential to make matters worse. Is there any way to turn things around in a more positive direction to curb the violence in America?


Answer from the Ascended Master Saint Germain through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2021 Webinar for Russia – Overcoming the consciousness of Superiority and the Sense of Being Unwhole, Traumatized and Focused Outside Oneself.

This is a complex topic because the violence in America does not have just one cause. Commenting strictly on this response from the officials, it is clear that America as several other democracies are being forced by escalating violence and tension to consider methods that are truly not democratic.

This is what you see has happened in many totalitarian nations where people start to object to a certain regime, and then the regime cracks down harder and harder in order to limit protests. It is certainly what has been happening in Russia. You see that even some democracies are being forced by the escalating violence and tension to enact these kinds of laws or methods that really are not democratic and should not be taking place in a democratic nation.

Does this mean they should not do this? Well, they need to do something to stop the violence, that is clear in a country like America. As we have talked about, all nations need to do something about hate speech that can quickly escalate into physical violence.

The essence here is that this is something that needs to be debated. In a sense you could say that the violence is forcing societies to debate these things to consider these things: “What is the proper response for a democratic nation?” It is also clear that once you go into this cycle of imposing restrictions by force then where does it end? How far do you have to go? It is, as you point out correct, a more constructive approach to look at what is the cause of the tension. How do we de-escalate?

This is of course what the current administration in United States is aware of and is seeking to accomplish as best they can. This is a stark contrast to the previous administration who were actually inflaming tensions rather than de-escalating them. This is not to say that the current administration will be highly successful in this matter because it is a very complex issue with violence in America.

It is something that goes back to the creation of the nation, as we have said before, where America has not transcended this willingness to use violence and force to achieve a certain end, whether it is personal or political. The long-term solution is that America transcends this, as some other democratic nations have done. You can, for the closest example, look north of the border to Canada, which is much further along in this respect than America, but even some European nations are further along than that.

This is a process that will take time. It really is a question of how much worse does it have to become before America starts breaking through to a willingness to address this. It is something deeply ingrained in the American psyche that there are certain times where violence is not only justified, violence is necessary and it is the only way out.

As I have said before, even the Revolutionary War could have been avoided. The United States could still have been created without violence, it would have taken longer, but it could have been created without violence. It could not have been done, given the state of consciousness at the time. But theoretically, it could have been done.

The reality here is that you can achieve a positive goal without violence and force. It may take longer, but it can be done. This is what the American psyche has not realized. The American psyche has this tendency to go into, what we might call an obsessive-compulsive state, where people see that there is a goal that needs to be achieved and it needs to be achieved now!

It is the epic mindset. It has to be achieved now! Therefore, the ends can justify the means. Violence and force is justified, because if we do not achieve the goal now, things will get worse. This is what you saw clearly used as a manipulative tool by Donald Trump and his administration: “Make America Great Again”, which really was a matter of preserving the white male dominance in America, which they portrayed as being under threat and that it would disappear if they did not do something now. In other words, if they did not do something about the election, they would not have a country left.

This is the kind of mindset that is underlying all of this violence, even the shootings by private people. It is a mindset that is so ingrained in the American psyche, that it will take a really decisive conscious effort to uproot it. In practical terms, it will take time. It will happen. It is clearly part of what needs to happen for America to enter the golden age and manifest the golden age. I have plans for this to happen. There are many people that are already open to it that are working towards this end. Some of them are not always balanced, nevertheless they are working towards it.

But the question really is: How much worse does the violence have to get before a critical mass of people wake up and say “Enough is enough”. It is clear that gun control is part of the issue. But it is not the ultimate solution. The ultimate solution is a shift in consciousness away from this: “Violence is justified and necessary. Violence is the only way to make a decisive change and we must make that change, and we must make it now”.

This is a version of the epic mindset that, we might say, led to the creation of America at that time. As I said, America has not transcended it and until it does it really cannot move further into the golden age. That is why you see a certain stagnation in various areas of American society. Whereas you see other nations that are moving further along because they do not have this issue that they are dealing with.

A mechanical approach to karma

Question: I recently watched a video from Elizabeth Clare Prophet about karma and reincarnation. It made me wonder if an accident mishap where no one else is involved is always related to karma from a past life?


Answer from the Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2021 Webinar for Russia – Overcoming the consciousness of Superiority and the Sense of Being Unwhole, Traumatized and Focused Outside Oneself.

You have to be careful when you talk about karma and realize that especially in eastern religions, especially in Hinduism, there is an incorrect and too fatalistic, mechanical approach to karma. There are people in the Hindu religion, for example, who believe that if you see a person drowning in a river, and you save that person, you have interfered with the person’s karma and now you are responsible for keeping that person alive, feeding them for the rest of their lives.

There is also a certain attitude that anything that happens to you must be the result of karma from a past life.

We have given teachings in this dispensation that this is not the correct view. The reality is, as we have said that you live on a very dense planet where there is a very, very complex matrix of energies and connections and this and that − the interdependent originations.

When something happens to you, even if you are alone in your car, for example, you cannot always say that it is the result of your karma from a past life. You can in some cases. It is the result of karma from your past life. But in some cases, it is the result of this very complex matrix that you are living in, that outplays itself in certain ways.

Then there is of course also, the free will choices you make in the present. If you are driving your car late at night, and you drive longer than you should have and you fall asleep, is that the karma from your past life that made you continue to drive or fall asleep? No, it was a decision you made.

There may very well be some unresolved psychology from a past life that made you make that decision. But was it really karma as the way most people understand karma as an external force that acted in your life and forced a certain event to take place? It could easily have been avoided if you had made a different choice.

An access to the four levels of the mind

Question: It is said that 90% to 95% is in our subconscious, and only 5% to 10% is in our conscious minds. How much in percent is left in the subconscious mind when someone is ready to ascend? Are these merely the body functions?


Answer from the Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2021 Webinar for Russia – Overcoming the consciousness of Superiority and the Sense of Being Unwhole, Traumatized and Focused Outside Oneself.

It is sort of meaningless to give a percentage when you talk about a person who is ready to ascend. Because when you are ready to ascend, you can access most of what happens in the four levels of your mind. And you can do this consciously, if you will, and if it serves a purpose.

But it does not mean that you are consciously aware of everything that is going on in the physical body and the emotional, mental and identity bodies. You are still, as long as you are in embodiment on a dense planet like earth, you have a limited attention span. In other words, there is a limit to how many things you can focus on at one time. You are making a choice, what you will focus on at any time. And that means that the other topics or areas of consciousness fade into the background.

Now, of course, for most people who are not at the higher levels of consciousness, they cannot access the levels of the subconscious mind. But as you go higher, you can access this, if you will, but you do not do it when it does not serve a purpose.

Naturally, you are correct that what relates to the functioning of the physical body is not something in most cases you need to be consciously aware of. There are of course, people who have developed the ability to influence their bodily functions with the mind. But this is not really even necessary in order to qualify for your ascension. You can also say that there are some functions in the emotional, mental and identity minds that you do not need to be consciously aware of, certainly not all the time.

But you do need to of course, and you will, at the higher levels of consciousness, be able to go into any level of the emotional, mental and identity bodies to resolve anything there that is unresolved. This does not apply to the physical body in the sense that there are many things in the body, that you come to the levels of consciousness where it is not an issue for you. It is not even a concern, certain things about the body.

You will see that there have been people in history who have had a high level of consciousness, but they still have certain physical ailments. Does that mean they could not have cured those if they wanted to? They could, but it was not a priority for them.

How to create better organizations and companies

Question: I was wondering about how to build and cultivate more conscious organizations or companies. As every organization also has a collective consciousness that is formed from that mandala, what is a realistic step to take to raise that consciousness? Would a possible first step be that the individuals within the organization overcome the perversions of the first ray? If an organization has 1,000 people, how many people would need to shift their consciousness in order to get a good upward momentum?


Answer from the Ascended Master Saint Germain through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2021 Webinar for Russia – Overcoming the consciousness of Superiority and the Sense of Being Unwhole, Traumatized and Focused Outside Oneself.

The topic of organizations is a vast and complex topic. Because there are many, many things that happen when people come together in a group and they begin to combine their consciousness. When people are organized in a specific group, whether it is a company, a spiritual group, a religious group, their auras, their four lower bodies begin to interact. And this creates a very complex mesh, or complex matrix for an organization.

It is not just that it is a perversion of the first ray, different organizations can have strong points or perversions on different rays. But it is not really the best way to look at the different rays. It is simply a matter of looking at the psychology behind the organization or the company.

You can begin by looking at the physical goal for it or the physical product that it produces. But you really need to go into looking at the mindset, the approach, the attitude behind that company. The most effective way to look at it is of course to look at the results, the physical results that the organization or company are producing. In terms of a business, is it competitive? Many, many businesses have helped people grow only when they collapsed, when they went down. Then some people have learned certain lessons.

Other companies have been brought to the brink of bankruptcy, or they have faced stronger competition. And that has prompted them to change. But the most creative companies are of course, those who are continually looking for new products, new solutions, and are willing to re-invent themselves. This requires, of course, that the leaders and many among the lower ranks, are willing to think in new terms, they are open to new ideas.

Basically, you can say that, to give you a simplified version of this is that it is important for all organizations to establish a procedure, a tradition, a willingness to continually look at itself. Look at its own performance, look at how that relates to the vision, the psychology, the approach of the organization, and then continually adjust this.

You understand that the purpose of life is growth. And how do you grow in the physical octave of earth? What have we said over and over again? You project a certain image onto the Mater light, the Mater light out pictures this image in terms of physical circumstances. And when you experience those circumstances, you can learn from it.

This applies also to an organization or a business. There is a matrix at the identity, mental and emotional level for a particular business. And it is this matrix that precipitates the products that the business is producing. And when you see the response from the market, from individual people to the products, you have an opportunity to learn from this and to look at the matrix and the three higher levels and therefore refine it. And this is how an organization or business can continue to grow.

I am not saying people need to be consciously aware of what I have told you here or use the same terminology. But you will see in some of the more creative companies, that they have some attitudes, some procedure of evaluating themselves and continually trying to renew or reinvent themselves, looking for, not just to refine the kind of products they have but looking for a whole different kind of product that takes the area to a higher level. Some companies are even looking for something that is not a higher level of what they have, but something entirely different.

How our beliefs affect our bodies

Question: Are there places in the body where we hold certain limiting beliefs? Is for example, a belief of not being worthy at a specific location in your auric field and therefore also has an imprint at a specific location in the body?


Answer from the Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2021 Webinar for Russia – Overcoming the consciousness of Superiority and the Sense of Being Unwhole, Traumatized and Focused Outside Oneself.

As we have explained, the physical body is a result of what happens at the identity, mental and emotional levels. It is sort of a projection of what happens at these levels. It is clear that you can say for example, that if you take the physical body, there is an image or an imprint of the physical body at the emotional level, at the mental and at the identity level. They are course different.

But nevertheless, you can say that, at the emotional body, there is sort of a map of the body that corresponds to the physical body. And there are certain emotions in that map, and they correspond to certain places such as organs in the body. And this is very true that you can map this. There are already various theories, various therapies, various healing methods out there that are doing this. We are working with a number of people to bring forth more knowledge of this, but it is beyond what we have decided to bring forth through this dispensation, at least at this time.

You need to, if you are interested in this area, go out there and find some kind of system or belief, or theory that applies to you, that resonates with you. And then you can use it of course, you can use it in connection with our teachings. You can certainly, when you become aware that a certain organ is burdened by a certain emotional energy, you can use the appropriate decrees and invocations to consume that energy. And you can also use our technique for identifying separate selves to heal a certain organ that you feel is burdened.

It is by no means so that our teachings are exclusive, or that you need to accept this messenger or these teachings, to use them ─ you are of course free to use them in other contexts, use them together with other healing modalities, perhaps even recommend them to other people, as an effective way to deal with the conditions that burden them.

I will say that, as we move more into the golden age, as Saint Germain said, all of the human divisions will begin to blur. And this also means that in the healing field, there will be less of this exclusivist mentality where you have to step into this particular movement, this particular system and accept it fully and not accept anything else. It is the same as for example, ascended master teachings—they will also blur and people will study many different ascended master teachings.

And there will be organizations that will form that are open to many ascended master teachings. There will be organizations, as there already has been to some degree that are open to many different spiritual tools, techniques, healing modalities, where it is not a matter of: “Do you believe this? Or do you believe that”? The question is: “What works? What is effective? What actually helps people”?

What I will say as a cautionary note here is it is very important to keep in mind that the physical body is the projection that starts at the identity, goes to the mental then the emotional level. There are certain healing modalities that have sort of reversed this. They believe that the key to healing or spiritual growth is to do something to the physical body. And that this is the only way or the most effective way to affect the other bodies.

I am not saying that you should not do something to the physical body when necessary. But when you are talking about spiritual or psychological healing, you need to start at the higher bodies. In some cases, you may need to start to the emotions and then go up to the mental and identity. Other times you can go to the mental or sometimes to the identity level.

But do not begin to believe that the key to spiritual growth for example, is to do something with or to the physical body. Because this is not the most effective way to pursue spiritual growth. I know very well that many people do this. Many people believe that yoga as a physical exercise is an effective way for spiritual growth. I am not saying it does not work for spiritual growth. But it is not the most effective way to spiritual growth. Because the most effective way is to work directly with the higher bodies.

How to get in touch with your emotions

Question: I recently realized how many people, especially men, close themselves  off from their emotional body. Instead of feeling the feelings, they are thinking how feelings feel like and they often externalize it. What is an effective way for how people can get access to their emotional body again?


Answer from the Ascended Master Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2021 Webinar for Russia – Overcoming the consciousness of Superiority and the Sense of Being Unwhole, Traumatized and Focused Outside Oneself.

There are many different forms of therapies or group sessions that people use to get more in touch with their emotions, but really it is not difficult to get in touch with your emotions if you are willing to experience them. It is correct that many, many people have been, so to speak, programmed to suppress their emotions— men more so than women of course, but still there are men who are willing to look at their emotions.

What it takes is, as we have talked about, that you overcome this fear of the emotions where you seek to suppress them because you are afraid of being overwhelmed by them, or you feel that they are so unpleasant you do not want to experience them.

You cannot resolve emotions unless you are willing to go into the emotion and see the belief behind them and you also really need to realize that emotions are not nearly as dangerous as you might think, that you can go into them and you are still surviving.

It is sort of the image that Gautama Buddha gave some time ago, that there is this dark master who is supposedly sitting in a castle and everybody at lower levels are afraid of confronting him, but if you disregarded all the warnings and walked into the castle you would see that there was nobody there.

It is the same with emotions. Once you have used our tools to transform the energy you can go into it and you can see that there is no unbearable emotion. It is just energy, it is just an emotion and you can stand there, almost like in the center of a hurricane, and be unaffected by it. Then you can look for the belief, resolve it, and free yourself from the entire spiral.

Fallen beings’ attack on an incoming lifestream 

Question: It was mentioned that the fallen beings have great knowledge of what kind of lifestream is coming in to embodiment. So did the fallen beings try to attack an incoming lifestream specifically on the ray that it had momentum on? Let’s say an avatar had momentum on the Fifth Ray (Third Eye), did they try to shock them in a way that they perverted the Fifth Ray the most?


Answer from the Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2021 Webinar for Russia – Overcoming the consciousness of Superiority and the Sense of Being Unwhole, Traumatized and Focused Outside Oneself.

Yes, it is correct that the fallen beings always look at an incoming lifestream, look at both their weaknesses and their strengths. It is not so that they only attack you at the strong point, even though they will try to pervert that if they can, but they primarily attack you at the weak points because that is the easiest for them. They will of course also try to make you pervert your strong sides because that has a great psychological impact on you. But it is not so that the fallen beings have unlimited power to attack incoming lifestreams, it is very much a matter of the choices you make.

But It is of course clear, as we have said, that when you come into embodiment, for example, as an avatar coming from a natural planet to the heaviness of planet earth, it is a quite overwhelming experience so you will go into some reactionary pattern and it is just a matter of when you start becoming aware of what the fallen beings are doing and the methods they are using so you do not respond to it, you do not allow them to manipulate you into a reactionary pattern to them, or at least you start freeing yourself from these reactionary patterns.

Genetic experimentation and human-animal hybrids

Question: In her “Course in Abundance”, Mother Mary talks about the dark side of technology and the necessity to develop the wisdom not to do certain things even though we can. Earlier this month in a joint project between US and Chinese scientists they successfully created early embryos that are part human and part monkey. They claimed to have destroyed them after 20 days. Debates are ongoing about whether or not this type of research is ethical. What are the consequences of this kind of research if it is taken further? And was this research done in previous civilizations and what effects did it have on the evolution of consciousness of that civilization? 

Answer from the Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2021 Webinar for Russia – Overcoming the consciousness of Superiority and the Sense of Being Unwhole, Traumatized and Focused Outside Oneself.

Well, we have both in previous dispensations and briefly in this, one mentioned that in previous civilizations there was even more genetic experimentation or manipulation than there is currently. Your civilization today is of course moving towards having those technical capabilities and it is clear that, as Saint Germain said in his dictation, that he has released technology primarily to give people the freedom of time and attention and energy to pursue more spiritual growth.

But, another side of the release of technology is actually that it forces society to debate certain issues: Can we do—should we do, everything we can do? If something is technically, scientifically possible does that mean that we should do it, not necessarily out of moral or ethical concerns, but out of a concern for our own survival, the long term effects that it has on us and society.

You can see that clearly nuclear bombs is the kind of technology that forced humankind to consider: Should we use the nuclear weapons even though we have developed them? They were not at the level where they could consider should we even develop them for obvious reasons that the fear is that if we do not do it the other side will do it and then they can blackmail us or destroy us.

This is of course part of the dualistic game that never ends until some nations transcend it and decide, as some nations have decided, not to develop nuclear weapons. But at least it has forced civilization to decide not to use them so far. And this has prevented a third world war that could have happened previously because people were too afraid that they would be forced to use nuclear weapons and it would have too destructive consequences.

The same, of course, applies to technology to manipulate the genes because it is technology that in past ages has been used to create hybrids between humans and animals that have had both negative physical effects but also negative effects on the consciousness of civilizations. You have the old concept that goes back to Old Testament times, as we talked about the Ten commandments, that something is forbidden by the law of God and this actually is not the higher view of it.

You can look at planet earth and you can say that there is no law that forbids you to do what is technically possible because whatever is possible on earth is within the law of free will for earth. God does not forbid people to do this and the reason for this is that in order for free will to outplay itself, people must have the option to do something that is self-destructive and then the question is how will they use that to learn? Will they have to use it and destroy themselves in order to learn the lesson or will they be able to learn it by considering the consequences?

It is clear that gene technology is certainly one of these areas where much debate is needed and it cannot be done as long as the thinking and the debate is controlled by religion on one side and materialism on the other, in other words the different religions where materialism is just another religion. There needs to be a transcendence of this, there needs to be an ending of the era of ideology where you can begin to look at the actual practical consequences.

It is not a matter of what you believe is going to happen or what you believe you should or should not do. It is a matter of recognizing that everything you do in the physical has consequences and what are those consequences and do we want to experience those consequences or do we want to stop them, stop doing what we are doing before the consequences become physical, or even before they become emotional, mental, or at the identity level?

But this is, of course, more out in the future before society will be able to debate this, but they certainly can debate the physical consequences. But it cannot be done as long as there is this ideological overlay where people are trying to force the universe to function according to man-made ideas or rather ideas made by the fallen beings.

Creation of the human body 

Question: I recently saw this old movie “Inherit the Wind”, which basically made fun of the Bible while glorifying Darwin’s “Origin of the Species”. It seemed to me like materialistic science was replacing an outmoded and phony religion, falsehoods abound on both sides of this equation. Evolution theory is a big part of modern education. At best, one can say that this is only a partial view or incomplete. Can you comment on this, particularly when it comes to the creation of physical bodies for spiritual beings to inhabit? If all is mind created can a physical body on a planet like earth be created in its final version immediately or does it need to go through some more gradual process of development? I use the term final very loosely here because clearly our physical bodies are changing rapidly to more out picture our level of consciousness.


Answer from the Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2021 Webinar for Russia – Overcoming the consciousness of Superiority and the Sense of Being Unwhole, Traumatized and Focused Outside Oneself.

On a natural planet human bodies, if you can call them human on a natural planet, but to use the terminology used on earth, are not the result of a long pregnancy. There is no need for sexual interaction for pregnancy and for a child to be born as a baby and take many years to grow to adulthood. You pretty much can precipitate a body through the identity, mental and emotional levels into the physical.

This is not possible on earth or on any other unnatural planet. That is why on unnatural planets you have the situation that you have human bodies being brought forth through a sexual act or propagation, a long pregnancy and then a long process to reach adulthood. This is of course what you see in the animal kingdom, which is why the materialistic scientists have portrayed human beings as just a sophisticated form of animal and this is why they believe there is this totally materialistic, mechanistic evolutionary process that leads from animal forms to humans.

They know very well they cannot explain all stages of this, the missing link is still missing, but they are as unwilling to look at the inconsistencies in their belief system as the members of most religions. That is why we have said before that materialism basically is a religion that aims to replace specifically the Christian religion.

So the reality here is that on earth you cannot bring forth a physical body through the mind. It can be done on a natural planet, but even so it is, as you correctly point out, not the final form of the body because on a natural planet the body also gradually changes through time as the consciousness of the being inhabiting that body changes. The physical body on a natural planet is not as dense, matter is not as dense and therefore you can actually, by changing your consciousness, change your body to a much greater degree than is possible on earth.

On earth you have people who use physical means to change their body and it is of course possible to change your body through the mind alone, which some more advanced beings such as Yogis have attained and this is something that will be more common in the golden age. When you reach the higher levels of the golden age people will be able to raise their consciousness to higher levels and therefore start changing the body, but still there will be the normal pregnancy that will be needed for the next 2000 year period.

The Agni Yoga movement

Question: Could Master More comment on the Agni Yoga movement? It is more popular in my country of Lithuania than any other ascended master movement. Its members though mostly deny that there was any new revelation after Agni Yoga. I’m very grateful for Agni Yoga because it gave me all the basic foundations in my childhood, my mother was a member of the Roerich Society, to start my path. There was also my introduction to ascended masters, although in Agni Yoga they were called mahatmas.


Answer from the Ascended Master Master More  through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2021 Webinar for Russia – Overcoming the consciousness of Superiority and the Sense of Being Unwhole, Traumatized and Focused Outside Oneself.

Well, the Agni Yoga movement was sponsored for a time but of course came to a point where the sponsorship ended and since then we have then sponsored other organizations. You will see that the Agni yoga movement has followed the same pattern that most of the organizations we have sponsored have followed.

They have recognized that there was progressive revelation through their movement, perhaps through some of the previous movements, but they have not recognized the progressive revelation through any movement coming after theirs which implies that the members of these movements and the leaders must believe that progressive revelation stopped with their movement.

The problem with this is of course, first of all, that it is not true, it is not correct, it is not in alignment with the ascended masters. The problem is that this very, very quickly causes the people who accept this to go into a state of spiritual pride where they actually believe that they can know better than the ascended masters what we should say or not say and through whom we should speak, or not speak. You will unfortunately see that these previous movements that deny any revelation after their own have been very much affected by this subtle consciousness of spiritual pride. The effect of this is that it prevents many of the people who come in contact with these movements from moving on and gaining contact with where we are at today.

There are of course some people that are able to move on and that is the positive aspect of these movements because they do of course introduce many ideas about the spiritual path and ascended masters. We can only work with the people who are willing to move on and of course with the people who are not willing to move on, we have no other option than to respect their free will. And we have no problem respecting their free will even though it is very, very clear that if more people would move on to the latest dispensation or use its teachings and invocations and decrees they could have a greater impact on a planetary level.

Personal and collective spirits, desire to be special, and duality

Question: We human beings live in duality on earth. So is it correct to say that for every level we go up to from the 48th, to the 96th level, we also create the opposite spirit, from the 47th to the first level of consciousness. And because we are all connected from the 47th to the first level, we find not only our own fallen stages, but also the collective fallen consciousness of earth? And if so, when we come higher than the 96th level, and are dismantling the ego selves, we are also doing it in the collective. And should we consider that if we on those higher levels keep finding the same spirit like the one that wants to be special and superior, even after deciding to let that self die in our identity, that may happen because that spirit is more than the one we personally created. It seems that this particular spirit is much stronger than others we can find, and also much harder to slay. Is it because it is one of the oldest that originated with the fallen consciousness? And additionally, if on earth, we always create into duality and will remain in duality until the 144th level of the identity or consciousness, does it mean that for every level above the 96th level, you also create a twin spirit that is opposite to the one that is growing in Christ? Or, because of those higher levels, we are above the collective consciousness. There is no opposite spirit?


Answer from the Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2021 Webinar for Russia – Overcoming the consciousness of Superiority and the Sense of Being Unwhole, Traumatized and Focused Outside Oneself.

It is, to begin with, correct that you are not only dealing with your personal spirits, but also with the collective. There are many of you who have reached a certain level of consciousness where you have risen above a certain spirit at the individual personal level, but you have in order to help the growth in the collective consciousness, vowed to take it on at the collective level.

There may be several spirits that are somewhat similar. It is certainly correct that one of the strongest spirits is the desire to be special, to be superior in some way. And it did originate with the fallen beings who fell in the fourth sphere, and has been reinforced by many fallen beings ever since. So this is a very strong spirit.

And in a sense, you could say that, you will probably have to deal with it several times as you grow in consciousness, because there is a certain temptation to feel that you are special, because you have reached a certain level of consciousness. This is simply the prince of this world, the demons of Mara who come to tempt you.

When you encounter this kind of energy, you can learn to realize or recognize that it is simply a projection coming from the outside, it does not mean that you have something inside yourself that you need to resolve because you have already resolved it, but you need to simply ignore it, let it pass through you. As Jesus said, the prince of this world comes and has nothing in me which means that whatever he projected at you is just passing through you, but as it is passing through you, you may become aware of it, it may grab your attention, but if you do not magnify it, by putting your attention on it, you can simply let it pass through.

It is not actually correct to say that you are always creating in duality, up until the 144th  level. And therefore, you do not at the higher levels create an opposing spirit. Basically, when you go above the 96th level, you are no longer creating in duality, you are of course living on a planet, where there is a very strong collective consciousness of duality. So it does mean that you are exposed to it when you interact with other people and dark forces project at you, when you observe simply the collective consciousness.

So you are confronted with the collective consciousness, but when you go above the 96th level, you are not creating your own internal spirits through the duality consciousness. So if we want to simplify it, we can say that there is a spirit for each of the 144 levels of consciousness. But those above the 96th level are not created based on duality. They are still created based on a certain sense of separation, and the density of the physical octave, but they are not created in duality. And even the spirits created below the 48th level are more aggressive and dualistic than those between the 48th and a 96th level. There is more to say about this, but this is what I want to give you for now.

Benign and not so benign NGOs

Question: I work for an international NGO (Non-Governmental Organization). And lately I have been feeling kind of down because I heard many stories of how NGOs actually are part of the group of people creating wars and disasters. Also, I heard about and read about how NGOs can be part of money laundering schemes. I would like to know what the ascended masters think of the help that NGOs bring to people in need?


Answer from the Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2021 Webinar for Russia – Overcoming the consciousness of Superiority and the Sense of Being Unwhole, Traumatized and Focused Outside Oneself.

It is clear that any human endeavor can be perverted by the duality consciousness. You have the old law called Murphy’s Law, “If anything can go wrong, it will”. You could rephrase that and say that, if anything can be abused by human beings, it will be abused.

So naturally, when you look at the phenomena of NGOs, there is a certain amount of abuse, there is certain organizations that are created in order to manipulate people. They may have a certain seemingly benign goal, but under the surface, they are working for various not so benign causes. It can be international corporations, it can be governments, it can be this or that. There are also some NGOs that are being used for money laundering schemes; that is correct.

But when you look at the overall level, NGOs are having a positive impact on the planet. In other words, there are more NGOs that are benign organizations functioning for a benign purpose, than there are NGOs that are not benign. You have to on the one hand, be wise as serpents and realize that anything can be misused by human beings, but you also have to be harmless as doves so you do not go into a state of cynicism or depression, where you say that the fact that NGOs can be misused, shows that they are no good and I will not have anything to do with them.

What you need to do is, of course, use your intuition, use your Christ discernment to sense what is the case for a particular NGO that you are involved with personally, or that you support financially, so that you can tune in. You need to study the organization, see how it works, get as much information as you can, but also use your intuition to tune in and sense whether it is right for you to support this organization or be involved with it.

I will say that there are many, many people in the world who are constructive, creative people who do not want to work for a corporation that is only out to make profit, and therefore they have chosen to work for or support NGOs, because they feel this is a way to make a positive contribution to society and to mankind.

I do not in any way want to discourage these people. But it is of course inevitable that some of them will be pulled into supporting a not benign cause. And again, this can only be resolved by intuition, by their Christ discernment ,by them asking critical questions and not having this idealistic mindset hat there could not possibly be anything wrong with this organization that claims to have such a benign purpose.

You need to be aware, but you need to avoid being cynical or negative. And you need to realize that you cannot allow the abuses of some people to prevent you from attempting to do something good. Because then the world would never rise above the low level that the fallen beings have taken it to. This was the whole message of Jesus’s turn the other cheek. If people had not been willing to turn the other cheek to what was done by the fallen beings, then the fallen beings would actually have destroyed this planet a long time ago.

The Ten Commandments and the levels of consciousness on earth 

Question: I am aware of the more recent dictations that say that God’s commandments given to Moses are from an old dispensation and no longer applicable on earth. But this does not seem realistic from the perspective of Christ discernment. Will one of the ascended masters please clarify?


Answer from the Ascended Master Jesus through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2021 Webinar for Russia – Overcoming the consciousness of Superiority and the Sense of Being Unwhole, Traumatized and Focused Outside Oneself.

Well, the correct view of this is that the Ten Commandments were given for a certain level of consciousness. And there are still quite a number of people on earth who are at that level of consciousness. So for these people the Ten commandments are still relevant, because it corresponds to their level of consciousness, and they need to have these very firm commandments, do this do not do that, because it is all they are able to grasp.

Now for many, many people on earth, especially in what we have called the modern nations, they are no longer applicable because they have transcended that level of consciousness. They do not need to have commandments, they need to have understanding of why they should not do this, or why they should do something else. And so this is a result of the growth in consciousness. There is, of course, higher levels where you get this from within through your intuition, you know what to do and not to do.

So, you see that there is the commandment level, there is the level where you have certain ethical or moral principles that guide people, first of all, do unto others as you want them to do unto you. And then there comes the higher level where people tune in individually and sense, what is the right behavior for them. There will always be a range of consciousness, even though in the future there will come a point where nobody is at that Old Testament level of consciousness so they no longer need the Ten Commandments.

Creativity without freedom? 

Question: There was a time when Russia contributed a lot in the sciences and creative arts.  Did the state control of her citizens numb this creativity? And as a result of this psychic pain, Russians just have a filter of specialness and superiority that they hide behind.


 Answer from the Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2021 Webinar for Russia – Overcoming the consciousness of Superiority and the Sense of Being Unwhole, Traumatized and Focused Outside Oneself.

You will see in many different societies that control and creativity cannot coexist. It is inevitable that the more you increase control, the more you diminish creativity. Creativity requires freedom. It requires an openness to experiment. And when there is enforced a control that limits experimentation, well, there is a limit to what creativity can bring forth.

In Soviet times, you did see that there was a lot of research. And that there was some creativity, some new things that were brought forth by Russians or Soviet scientists. But this very much happened within the limitations, the borders defined by the state and the Communist Party. It was an entirely materialistic approach that was focused on increasing the power of the Soviet Union, both militarily and in other ways.

But this is not a phenomenon limited to Russia, of course, you can see it and other nations as well. And you can see it in the West right now, where the materialistic mindset is limiting scientific research and general creativity. You saw in the Middle Ages, how the Catholic Church limited scientific research and experimentation.

So in general, it is clear that when a culture, a society, a religion or a political party sets boundaries for what can be experimented with, what can be theorized about, what new theories can be cast out and investigated, then they will limit not only scientific creativity, but all other forms of creativity as well.

Individual ascensions and the ascension of the sphere

Question: This is an excerpt from the book of Maitreya Key 22. (That is “The Master Keys to Spiritual Freedom”): “Let us begin by making a distinction between ascending from the earth, meaning that you do not have to come back into physical embodiment and ascending to the spiritual realm, whereby you become an immortal being, an ascended master. As I have explained, there are certain beings whose origin is tied to this particular sphere. They include beings who evolved from below, co-creators who were created to descend into this sphere in all four levels, and angels who were created to serve this sphere. These beings cannot permanently ascend to the spiritual realm until this sphere reaches critical mass and begins the ascension process. They were created to help this sphere ascend, and thus their individual ascensions are tied to the ascension of the entire sphere”.

From the above excerpt, it seems that those of us who have not fallen cannot make our ascension before this sphere reaches critical mass and begins the ascension process. There are numerous newly ascended masters and I have understood from the teachings that we all have the potential to make our ascension. Does it mean then, that our sphere began the ascension process? Or how should we understand the above passage from the book?


Answer from the Ascended Master Maitreya through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2021 Webinar for Russia – Overcoming the consciousness of Superiority and the Sense of Being Unwhole, Traumatized and Focused Outside Oneself.

What you need to do here is realize that any teaching that we give has a certain limitation, it is given at a certain time, where there is a certain complex configuration in the collective consciousness. At that particular time, a certain wording is used, because of that particular configuration of consciousness.  You also need to recognize that what we are dealing with here is some very subtle, complex issues where words are not particularly suited to describing everything.

You cannot necessarily resolve what seems to be enigmas or contradictions through the linear mind. What I will say in retrospect is that I would have worded this differently today. But for various reasons, this was the way the words came out in the messenger’s mind, which is partly a matter of his background in the Summit Lighthouse and his level of consciousness at the time.

Now, what you now need to recognize here is that in a certain way, the sphere in which you live has started the ascension process, because there are planets that have ascended, there are planets that have ascended from the physical realm, which is why you don’t see life, physical life on Venus. And there are even entire galaxies that have ascended to a much higher level than what you see in your galaxy. There is a rather broad range in your sphere. You can say from this perspective that your sphere has entered the ascension process.

But you also need to recognize that in the previous dispensation of the Summit Lighthouse, we gave a somewhat more simplified view of the ascension process. It was stated there that you could ascend with 51% of your karma balanced, which means that you would still have karma with yourself which is as Mother Mary has explained, primarily unresolved psychology. Now, of course, this meant that in the Summit Lighthouse, it was believed that there were certain people about whom it was said by the messenger that they had balanced, say 75% of their karma.

So naturally, people assumed that when that person made their transition, the person would then ascend. And there was even a custom of claiming the mantle of the ascended master so and so, because it was assumed that that person which they had known personally, had now become an ascended master, even though the person had supposedly not balanced 100% of his karma.

Naturally, we have said in this dispensation that you do not become an ascended master if you have unresolved psychology, you need to resolve your psychology before you fully become an ascended master. And so from this perspective, you can make a distinction and say that there are people who reach a certain level where they do not have to take embodiment again on earth, but they still have unresolved psychology or if you will, unbalanced karma, and therefore, they cannot become ascended masters.

But there are also those who resolve enough of their psychology, that within a relatively short time span, after they make their transition in the last embodiment, they can become ascended masters. An example of this is Lanello, and Guru Ma, who took some time after the death of their physical bodies, before they were actually ascended masters. I know it was said in the Summit, that Lanello was an ascended master from the beginning, but it was also said that it took some time before he had balanced 100% of his karma. You see how there is a difference in terminology.

What you need to realize here is that there is a certain group of people on earth that do not have to come back in embodiment after this lifetime, but it does not mean they become ascended masters. Then, there is a smaller group of people who can become ascended masters shortly after they make the transition. But there is also a group of people, or lifestreams that have vowed as part of their divine plan to stay with earth, or to stay in embodiment on other planets, until either the planet ascends, or the entire sphere is fully ascended.

The ascension of a sphere is not something that happens all at once. It does happen in stages where various planets, in the beginning very few planets become the forerunners, and then entire galaxies ascend. And then, as I said, there is even the ascension, where there is an ascension from the physical to the emotional level, meaning there is no longer life on a certain planet at the physical level.

But there is life in the emotional, mental and identity realms, then it can be a next ascension, where there is no longer life in the emotional, but still life in the mental and identity and so forth. Until there is no longer any life in these four levels. When there is no longer life in the four levels, that is when a solar system will cease to exist, because the sun will become either a white dwarf or a black hole, and eventually not even exist at the physical level.

These are somewhat complex issues, as you can surely see. What we have said through this dispensation, which is something we have not been able to say in any previous dispensation for a variety of reasons, partly the consciousness of the messenger, partly the consciousness of the students and partly the collective consciousness. What we have said in this dispensation is that what we give is progressive revelation. You cannot take any revelation we have given and consider that this is the final absolute word on it.

We have also talked about the limitations of words. We of course, always reserve our right to bring forth a higher teaching, a broader perspective, that when you take the linear mind and compare it to a previous teaching, it will seem like a contradiction. In some cases, there can be contradictions, because no messenger is infallible as even the messenger for the Summit Lighthouse acknowledged and as this messenger certainly acknowledges as well.

But in the process of progressive revelation, it is necessary to recognize that, at any given time, there is a complex equation, depending on the collective consciousness, of what can be brought forth and what we determine will have the greatest impact at that time. Our purpose is, of course, to bring either a certain group of people of humanity as a whole forward to a higher level of consciousness, where we can then give a higher teaching.

What you will see is that in the beginning of a new dispensation, there will be a bridge given to previous dispensations. There is a reason why this messenger had to be in the Summit Lighthouse for a number of years and also had to study the I AM Movement and even briefly, the Bridge to Freedom teachings and Roerich teachings.

And it was so that he had the concepts and the words that were used in his mind, so that his mind was able to verbalize the teachings in such a way that people, students from previous dispensations could make the transition to this dispensation—there was something that they were familiar with, and this enabled at least some students to move on with us.

But then, it is never our intention, that a new dispensation should give forth the exact same teaching as a previous dispensation. What would be the point in having a new dispensation, if it was not to give a higher level of teaching than the previous one?

And this is where we simply run into the fact that words have a certain meaning at a certain time in a certain culture and therefore, there can come a point where we have given a teaching for a certain level, but we need to transcend that teaching, because it actually becomes a limitation for giving a more advanced teaching.

In other words, if we have to use words, in a way that cannot be construed as being a contradiction with a previous teaching, then we are limited in bringing forth a higher teaching. And that is why we sometimes transcend a certain dispensation. In other words, a certain dispensation comes to a certain point where the messenger is not flexible enough in his or her mind, the students, a critical mass of them, are not flexible enough in their minds, that we do not see the possibility of continuing progressive revelation in that organization. This was the case with the I Am Movement with the Roerichs, with the Bridge to Freedom, with the Summit Lighthouse.

But in this dispensation, both the messenger and a number of students have been willing to stretch their minds. And that is why we have actually already given teachings through this messenger, that in previous times, would have required three different messengers to bring these teachings forth, and three different groups of students, although a few may have been able to move on.

And so this is in a sense, an experiment. It is a new opportunity for us, and we are determined to make use of it, as long as the messenger is willing and able to stretch his mind and as long as a certain critical mass of students are willing to stretch their minds.

Alexei Navalny and his divine plan

Question: Can the ascended masters comment on the current situation in Russia concerning Alexei Navalny  who may be close to death at this time because of the hunger strike and lack of adequate medical care. Was it a good idea for him to return to Russia after his attempted poisoning last year and is the potential loss of his life and necessary sacrifice on his part for the advancement of the cause of liberty in Russia?


Answer from the Ascended Master Saint Germain through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2021 Webinar for Russia – Overcoming the consciousness of Superiority and the Sense of Being Unwhole, Traumatized and Focused Outside Oneself.

Well, there is not just one way to look at this issue. If you go back to the terminology that for example was used in the Summit Lighthouse, it would have been said that Navalny is a freedom fighter who is fighting for greater freedom in Russia by opposing the oppressive government. But there is always an evaluation that needs to be made at the individual level. What is a specific person’s individual divine plan? This is of course, something that can only be decided by the individual, hopefully it is not decided by the outer mind but the person’s intuition and attunement with his or her divine plan. So, what I am saying here is that what applies to Navalny may not apply to all people, therefore I am not encouraging other people to follow the same pattern that he has followed.

Now, Navalny has a quite high attunement with what is in his divine plan. He knows that it is part of his divine plan to make visible what is happening with the Russian government and their abuse of power. He has shifted somewhat over time to focusing more on the issue of corruption, which is what he decided to do before coming into embodiment, because it is one of the major issues in Russia today. It is an example of abuse of power of course.

It is not that he does not have attunement with his divine plan. He does have in his personal psychology, a certain tendency to become unbalanced and to want to go too far towards extremes. Now, you can say this is necessary for a person to take a stand against the current Russian government, so I am not blaming him for this.

It is clear that he has done what he has done previously. He has been imprisoned, he has been exposed to various abuses of power, but now comes the more extreme abuse of power and the attempt to kill him. He survives this, but this is where he goes into a somewhat unbalanced reaction to this, where he is thinking that: “I could just as easily have died from this. If I had died I would have been content that I have done what I could. So, now I might as well go back to Russia and let them kill me (which he expects that they will) in order to do what I came to do, and make visible the abuse of power.” But this is not the only possible reaction. He could very well have decided to stay outside of Russia and continue doing what he was doing, from outside of Russia. 

It is not so that there is only one way to do this. He is of course allowed to make this choice. But going back to Russia, going into a hunger strike are not the most balanced options. It is not what he actually decided to do in his divine plan, because what is the point really, of letting them kill you versus staying in embodiment and continuing to expose – what you can expose.

So, it is clear that the treatment of Navalny by the Russian authorities is exposing their abuse of power. What they are doing, is seeking to establish an example that will discourage other people from objecting to their rule. They are of course blinded by their mindset so they do not see what they are doing. They do not see that whatever they do to Navalny is actually reinforcing his message.

For example, when he was poisoned he was on parole and had to report on a regular basis to the authorities. When he came back to Russia, why was he jailed? Because he had violated his parole. But why did he not show up for this meeting, because he was in a coma as a result of being poisoned by Novichok. So, by the very fact that the Russian authorities jail him for a supposed violation that they caused, exposes the extreme cognitive dissonance, their blindness, their hypocrisy, they of course cannot see it. But many among the people in Russia can see it and many abroad can see it. 

So, from the Russian authorities viewpoint, it would have been better of course not to try to poison him. It would have been better to ignore him, to either refuse him entry into Russia or to not put him in jail. The more they act with violence and force against him, the more they actually reinforce the message. What is his main message? To simply expose the abuse of power.

Will this have a significant impact on Russia? Well, it has already had a certain impact, because it has shocked certain people. Most people of course, realize that it can only be the Russian government that performed the Novichok poisoning, because only they have access to it and it could only be ordered from the highest level of government, most likely Putin himself. So, this was a shock to some people. There were also some people that realized, that if the government is willing to take such measures, they must feel threatened by Navalny, people have started to consider “why is that.” 

Of course, putting him in jail, putting him in a labour camp has exposed that there are still labour camps in Russia, as there were in the Soviet Union. The threat of being sent to Siberia is still there in modern day Russia. This has made at least some people start to think about this. It has started to shift consciousness. Whether it will have a decisive impact in the short term is more doubtful, but certainly it can be part of the shift in consciousness that we are talking about.

NoFap movement

Question: This question is about masturbation. There is a growing movement called NoFap which abstains from masturbation and pornography. They claim that masturbation and porn damaged their lives, reduced their energy level, emotional sensitivity and even lack of joy. So they chose to abstain in order to experience the difference and realize the negative effects of masturbation, which they could not see before. So they basically experienced increased energy levels and joy when they abstained. So why is masturbation so popularized  and revived even by most medical doctors as healthy when a growing number of people are realizing that it is not healthy?


Answer from the Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2021 Webinar for Russia – Overcoming the consciousness of Superiority and the Sense of Being Unwhole, Traumatized and Focused Outside Oneself.

Well the cause is of course that the fallen beings have attempted to inflate people’s sexual desire in order to manipulate people. And this has found its way into popular culture even the medical profession to some degree. And there can be a certain physical reality in the sense that it can be healthy, to release bodily fluids instead of having them accumulate. This is at least the view point taken by medical doctors, and it is not that this at a purely physical level is necessarily wrong.

But a human being is not an entirely physical being, which of course to medical doctors they are and this is the problem with modern medicine. But when you consider the whole human being, the emotional, mental and identity level, then you see that there is a certain effect of an unbalanced sexual desire. It does take your energy, it does take your attention. It does disturb your sense of joy because you are not at peace.

Sexual desire as we have said in our conference about women is for most men an addiction, for many women as well. And there is of course dark forces that encourage this addiction. And there is a lot of advertising and marketing and movies and books and this and that, and even the medical profession that encouraged this kind of addiction.

This is partly a reaction to the past age where churches especially were trying to get people to abstain from sex through force, which is also unhealthy. So what is happening is of course, that our society becomes unbalanced, in any area.

There are some people who are more sensitive to how this imbalance affects them. They are sensitive to their own energy level, to the flow of energy in their energy fields, and they start noticing the negative effects. It is not just a matter of sex, it can be alcohol, drugs, it could be many other things.

So you will see that society swings, there might have been one extreme where people were made to feel guilty for having sex and it was necessary with more sexual freedom for them to overcome this unbalanced state. But then the sexual freedom that started in the 60s swung to another unbalanced extreme where sex became addictive. And now there are people who are realizing that this is also unbalanced. So they are waking up, they are deciding without knowing  ascended master teachings, to strive for balance at the personal level.

They could more quickly do this, if they had our teachings, could invoke spiritual protection, could invoke being cut free from these entities and demons, and could also use the teachings to resolve the selves that they have accumulated in past lives relating to sexuality.

But nevertheless they are still making a sincere effort. And I very much applaud the people who are doing this in any area where they are seeking more balance and where they are looking at society and recognizing that certain conditions have been taken to an unbalanced extreme and they do not want to be part of it.

Was Nietzsche inspired by ascended masters? 

Question: Has Nietzsche’s “Thus Spake Zarathustra” being inspired at least partly by the Ascended Master Zarathustra? The way Nietzsches speaks about his encounters with Zarathustra and a general spirited tone makes one think so.  What are the pitfalls of his artwork? Is it just another philosophical work of art?


Answer from the Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2021 Webinar for Russia – Overcoming the consciousness of Superiority and the Sense of Being Unwhole, Traumatized and Focused Outside Oneself.

Nietzsche was not inspired by an ascended master. But this does not mean that his works are coming from fallen beings. Nietzsche was an example of a person who was open to some ideas from the ascended masters even though he was not sponsored directly by us. But he was also open to some dark ideas. So there is a mixture. And that is why you need to use your discernment when you study his work and the work of most other philosophers.

It is not that Nietzsche was a destructive person or a destructive philosopher, but he did have certain psychological issues. That meant that he was open to certain ideas that are not in alignment with the teachings of the ascended masters.

And so you need to, when you evaluate the work of any philosopher, you need to actually look at the philosopher, his or her life, his or her psychology and get some idea of where the philosopher is coming from. You will often see that a philosopher grew up in a certain environment and accepted certain ideas as being beyond questioning. And these ideas or paradigms as they are often called, then formed the boundaries for where the person’s mind could go in the philosophical deliberations. So most philosophers cannot be separated from their cultural context. And they certainly cannot be separated from their individual psychology.

You will notice that whether it is philosophers, whether it is scientists, whether it is writers, whether it is state leaders, religious leaders, there is a tendency in the world, a very subtle tendency,that is rarely articulated, to always consider them as near perfect human beings that are not affected by their personal psychology.

This is of course coming from the fallen beings who want you to look at them as being beyond questioning, so you do not need to look at their personal psychology, because they know that if you look at their personal psychology, you will see the imbalances, you would see the deep psychological wounds and traumas that means they cannot be considered neutral. And therefore what they brought forth, what they did is not neutral either.

Many people are open to the fact that Hitler was very much  affected by his psychology, but they fail to apply  this to many other leaders, philosophers, writers, what have you. You can never separate a person from his or her psychology. There are of course people who have overcome and healed much of their psychology so they can be more neutral than others. But you always need to consider the psychology of the person bringing forth anything, or doing anything, as of course you need to consider your own psychology.

How to transcend sexual desires 

Question: Why is it so hard to overcome all sexual desires? I notice that there is a group of spiritual people that doesn’t feel it is in their divine plan to have a spouse. But on the other hand they find it hard to transcend sexual desires. What does one need to overcome in order to transcend human sexuality without forcing oneself by adopting an ascetic lifestyle out of a relative standard of good and evil?


Answer from the Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2021 Webinar for Russia – Overcoming the consciousness of Superiority and the Sense of Being Unwhole, Traumatized and Focused Outside Oneself.

It is hard to overcome human sexuality because there are demons and entities that are constantly impinging on people’s desire bodies and base chakras to get them to go into this state of an insatiable sexual desire. The fallen beings have made an enormous effort to inflate people’s sexual desires beyond what is natural.

As a spiritual student you need to protect yourself from the influence of these lower beings, which you can do by making the calls for protection, for cutting you free—to Astrea to clear your base chakra and desire body. But you also need to make certain decisions. And it is not so much a matter of making this decision with the outer mind. This is what was advocated in previous dispensations and many religious and spiritual movements that promote an ascetic lifestyle. But this is because they did not have the teaching about the separate selves  and how to dissolve them.

You need to recognize that sexual desire has been used to manipulate people for a very, very long time. In fact , ever since the fallen beings came to this planet. It is very difficult to live on this planet, without in past lives having created various selves relating to sex and sexuality.

If you really want to be free of this manipulation through sexual desires it is a topic that gives the prince of this world an inroad into your consciousness and allows the demons and dark forces to pull on your chakras and desire body. This also requires a deliberate decision not to engage in watching pornography or even thinking about sex, which you can do more easily when you have resolved these selves that I am talking about. So naturally this is what you can do to come to a point where you are not a slave of your sexual desires.

Now you may still have sexual desires at a manageable level that does not steal your attention and become an obsessive compulsive addiction. And it is of course possible to have sexual relations. But as we said before, having sexual relations with different partners or a one nightstand will deplete your energy and it will not contribute to your spiritual growth.

So what other option is there than to have a more steady sexual partner and how is that possible without having a more committed relationship? So you need to evaluate what you want to do with your life, how you want to live your life and then take measures that are balanced and do not cause your energies to go into these patterns that become addictive or obsessive compulsive.
