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.

What is a demon? 

Question: Seeing that the invocations we give frequently mention demons, can the masters comment if they deem appropriate. What are they? What is a demon? Also, how is a demon made? How long does it take to form one? Are demon souls that have really, really gone too far astray, or are they just an agglomerate of dense, dark energies gaining autonomous traction working aggressively against mankind? What is a demon? We have free will, what does the demon have? Can we make calls for the ascended masters has to dissolve them?


 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 already given various teachings on the creation of demons, but for the sake of having them gathered in an easy to find format, I will give some thoughts on this.

There has traditionally in previous dispensations been talk about demons without clearly defining exactly what they were and how they were created. What we have given in this dispensation is that most demons are a creation of human beings and fallen beings who start to focus on a particular perverted issue, let us say for example, war.

They start engaging in war, focusing on war at the identity, mental, emotional and physical level. And through this concentration of energy, you are creating a demon in the emotional realm. You can also create entities or collective entities, collective beasts in the mental and identity realm related to war, but what we normally call a demon is in the emotional realm.

This is a being that is created by human beings and by fallen beings in the three higher realms. It has no threefold fame, it has no conscious you, it has no free will. It is programmed to act based on a certain matrix, and it cannot step back, look at itself and change the matrix. It is like a computer that mindlessly continues to run the same program. A demon has some awareness, that in order to survive, it needs energy from human beings.

So if a demon is created, out of people killing each other in war, then that demon will pull on the emotional bodies of human beings to get them to engage in war or other forms of violence, so that they can steal the energy that is released through these actions. And there are some demons that even extract energy when people are engaged in the military, in weapons production, weapons research, learning how to use weapons, thinking about weapons that are used for killing people, and all of these things.

We have also talked about another kind of demon, which is basically that fallen beings can sink to such a low level that they have no self-awareness left, they really do not have free will, they are not able to change. And they can also be considered as a demon because they function at the same level of mechanization as a demon.

And naturally, it is important for you as ascended master students to be aware that these dark beings exist, because how can you free yourself from them if you don’t know they are there? How can you protect yourself from bacteria in your drinking water, if you do not know that bacteria exist?

Naturally, you can make the calls for your protection. And in many invocations, we have you make calls for the binding of them, so that we can free the planet from them, we can clear them out in the collective consciousness.

Now we do, of course, also talk about entities, collective beasts, and even certain matrices in the collective consciousness. What is the difference between them and demons?

Well, mainly that the demons are more aggressive. They are more directly and aggressively seeking to influence people. And therefore, they are more powerful for people who are vulnerable to their influence. We can talk for example, about a demon of war that very aggressively tries to take over people’s minds and go into this state where they do not care about the consequences of war, they are absolutely determined to go to war and kill as many people as possible.

We can then talk about something called the tobacco entity, which is an entity that seeks to get people to smoke. But it is not as aggressive as a demon of war, for example. So in a sense, you could say that entities are created the same way by a concentration of energy, often as a result of certain physical actions. But we have chosen to use slightly different words for this. Just to indicate the level of aggression from these beings.

The negative effects of music

Question: I read once in another dispensation, a master commenting that one planet was destroyed because of music, or that somehow music helped bring it down. Can the Masters please comment whether that message was real, and also on the current state of music on planet earth? Does a danger like that—maybe not that big of a danger, but any other danger related to mass music—is that present on earth.


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 in the Summit Lighthouse, given teachings on the negative effects of music, where we especially have said that the syncopated beat that you find in much of rock music is out of touch with the rhythm of nature, which you can see in waltz music, for example.

And so, it is clear that there are some forms of music that can have a destructive effect. I will say, though, that the teachings in the Summit Lighthouse were not quite balanced in terms of music. And it was credited that music had a greater impact on society than is actually the case, or that is at least a case in the present time.

There have been past civilizations on earth, where certain forms of music were a contributing factor to bringing the civilization down. But music in itself cannot destroy a civilization because there are so many complex issues. We have lately started talking more about the “interdependent originations”. And in the Summit Lighthouse, which was the last dispensation of the Piscean Age, we gave a more simple teaching, where we often gave a more simplified cause and effect explanation.

That was, we might call it, more black and white. And this was then interpreted both by the messenger and by people in the organization, which gave music a greater importance than it actually has. Because naturally, there is always free will, and there is always the consciousness of the people. There may be many people who, at a certain period of time, listened to rock music, and it certainly had an effect. But there were also many people who did not listen to this kind of music. And so, there is always a balance to be found, where even though some people are into a certain perversion, they cannot destroy a society or planet if a majority of the people are not into it.

You can just take the issue of war, and see that even though there are certain people throughout history who have been into a warring mentality, it still has not destroyed the planet. It has in the past overturn certain civilizations, but nevertheless, it has not destroyed the planet. Certainly you must say that war is a very destructive force.

I am not trying to downplay the effect or the importance of music. It is of course important, but it is less important with the kind of music you have today, which is not quite as destructive as the rock music you saw in the 60s, 70s and 80s.

It is of course important for you as spiritual students to use your intuition to sense what kind of music to listen to. Again, you can use the tool of centering in your heart, seeing whether it raises or lowers your energy. The syncopated beats used in much rock music, and other music such as much of rap music that is very staccato, very inharmonious will often hammer your energies down and concentrate them in the base chakra. Whereas the music you want to listen to is music that raises up your energies to the higher chakras. This is a simple measure you can use at the personal level.

But even though music is important, it is not one of the major issues in society, which is of course, why we have brought forth many of the books from previous conferences that talk about the issues that we do consider to be the most important at the present time.

The school of hard knocks in Argentina 

Question: The political and economical situation is rapidly worsening in Argentina, is there a dawning horizon anywhere in the next years in my country?


 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, my beloved, the unfortunate fact is that many of the South American and Central American nations are still in the school of hard knocks, where they need to go through some fairly dramatic conditions, in order to see that this does not work.

You will see when you look back at history, that some nations have gone through these very strong ups and downs in the economy, often because they were enamored with some kind of ideology, be it socialism, or neoliberalism. And they decided to implement this economic system without considering what is the reality of economic principles, and what is the practical situation in their nation.

Both in Argentina and in many other countries in the region, there will be these ups and downs. But there is always the silver lining in the sense that when a country has gone to a certain extreme, there will be a group of people that can be awakened by this. And they can then come in and demand and implement a more balanced approach to the economy.

Unfortunately, it is an open question whether this will happen in Argentina, or Brazil or any other nation. But there is always a strong possibility. And certainly, I am always willing to work with the people, even if they don’t know anything about ascended masters, who are open to new ideas that can give greater prosperity to the people.

In South America, Central America, we have the same problem we see anywhere, that there is a tendency for the formation of a power elite that wants to exploit the economy and simply steal wealth away from the population. And this has in the past, given some nations a desire to experiment with socialism. But this does not work either.

So, there is a need for a new approach, and it will gradually be brought forth, not necessarily in South America, but it will be brought forth. And there are already some ideas out there that nations can implement. It is just a matter of having that willingness. And in many cases, this takes a certain economic crisis before there is the willingness to look for a new approach to the economy.

There is a tendency in some nations at least, to look at the more affluent nations be it United States or other nations and think that you can take the approach to the economy that you see in these nations and translate uncritically to a South American nation. And this is not a wise approach, because there are always certain conditions in the psychology of the people, the background of the people.

And of course, you cannot discount the fact that in many South and Central American nations, there is still a strong influence by the Catholic Church, which, essentially, when you look at the history of the Catholic Church and how they were instrumental in forming the feudal ages in Europe, it is an elitist approach. The Catholic Church encourages the formation of an elite in society, and puts the population down as sinners who should submit to this elite. This is also one of the factors that needs to be looked at and challenged in the nations that are strongly Catholic.

An affinity with one or several masters? 

Question: I feel a high affinity with many ascended masters for a long time. And it is said that at a certain stage on the spiritual path, you should define which master is your personal guide? How can I determine mine, just through intuition?


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

Well, what we have actually said is that there will be certain stages on the path where you are working with a particular master. In previous dispensations, there has been an unbalanced focus on that everybody needed to determine which spiritual ray they were on, and therefore, which master they were working with. There was even a certain competition among students, because some rays were considered to be more powerful or more advanced than others.

This is of course, not a healthy approach, you may very well work with a certain master for a certain time. And then you need to work with a different master for another time. And this is something you might know from your individual attunement.

Or if you do not have a clear sense of this, then use the “Course of Self Mastery”, and work with whatever master you are working with in the book you are working on right now. Whatever Chohan it is, for the ray you are working on.

But if you get to a point where you have an intuitive sense, of an affinity with one or several masters, then just focus on that. You do not need to use your outer mind to go and say: “Oh, I should now determine that there’s just one master, that’s my main master.” That is not necessary. That is too linear of an approach. And it is something driven by the outer mind.

The self that drives you to change yourself

Question: In the process of looking at my separate selves, I had discovered that when something comes up, I have another separate self that feels like it has to always do something about that self. Ironically, this keeps me from actually seeing the separate self, I want to see. I know in another answer, the ascended masters have talked about looking at a self in a non-obsessive way. But I find it very difficult to do that, because the selves I’m looking at, are painful. And so of course, I’ll want to do something about these selves, I’m wondering if they have any advice for looking at the self that wants to always look at selves, or perhaps there is a way to temporarily neutralize that self and deal with it later. So I can see the more painful selves first.


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, in order to really make use of the teaching about the separate selves, you need to be willing to step back and look at what comes up in your consciousness. And it may be that you have a certain self, a certain sense that there are certain selves to work on that might be very painful, but then this other self comes in and disturbs the process. But this is because in your outer mind, you have locked yourself on a certain approach.

My advice is that the self that disturbs you—disturbs the process—this is the self you should work on first. In other words, use the tools to get a look at that self to come to see why. And then seek to dissolve that self. Once you have dissolved that self, it becomes easier to look at other selves.

There are many scenarios that can come into play, because over many lifetimes, you might have been willing to work on your psychology, use various spiritual tools, will use various psychological tools. There are certain students that have built this momentum of being willing to change themselves. But it can also become unbalanced to the point where you become obsessive-compulsive about changing yourself, you become so eager in an unbalanced way to change yourself, that you are actually creating a self that drives you to change yourself.

And of course, this is not a process that will take you beyond a certain level, you need to simply step back, look at that reaction, realize it comes from a self and then look at that self and seek to resolve that self—seek to find that decision you made.

There are many people who for many lifetimes have been embodied in various religions, where you have this idea that you have either sinned, or you have made karma in past lives. And you need to compensate for this by doing something in this life. And so various selves have been created as a result of this almost obsessive-compulsive need to compensate for your past mistakes. And it can also be a sincere desire to change that is taken into an unbalanced state and therefore even results in the creation of a self that drives you.

It really is the hope of the ascended masters that you can use these tools that we have given to come to a point that the messenger has actually talked about, where you become at peace with being who you are. You do not go into the illusion that now you have reached some ultimate state of consciousness, that you are enlightened or whatever you accepted.

You will be working on your psychology for as long as you are in embodiment. But you are not feeling any compulsion. You are not feeling any lack. You are not blaming yourself, you are simply accepting that you are at a certain level of consciousness right now, which is perfectly acceptable. And you know that you are always open to the next self coming up that you need to see that will take you to another level. But there is no reason to feel any lack or dissatisfaction you are at peace with being where you are on your path.

This is what we hope you can accomplish. And there are some students that have built various selves that work against this, but then use the tools to look at those selves and deal with them first, so you can have a more relaxed approach to other selves. The more at peace, the more relaxed you can be about the process, the easier it will be to deal with very painful selves or selves that are based on these deep emotions and deep traumas.

Clearing the chakras 

Question: It was said that Maleve – who was a person in the My Lives book – deserved having her chakras cleared. Can we ask Jesus Christ to do the same for us, will the call work?


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.

Of course, you can ask any master to clear your chakras, but if you want to clear your chakras, I would ask Archangel Michael and Astrea because they are the masters who are mostly doing that kind of work. Astrea is especially effective for clearing your chakras.

You can of course, get more sophisticated. If there is a specific chakra you want to clear, then you can give calls to the Archangel for that particular ray. You can find teachings on the website about which chakras correspond to which rays and which archangels to which rays.

Lower forms of sex and the base chakra

Question: As lower forms of sex – meaning sex below love – depletes us of our energy, is working on our chakras starting with the secret chamber of the heart, the way to regain the energy, or is there another way?


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, lower forms of sex will block your energy flow or deplete your energy primarily by polluting the base chakra. The base chakra is the chakra where the energy enters and rises up along the spine to the other chakras, so the primary means for compensating for this will be to purify your base chakra.

Volume of decreeing 

Question: How loud do we have to say the decrees and invocations? Is it enough as long as we can hear ourselves, or does it need to be louder?


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.

That depends somewhat on your practical situation, if you have a situation where you cannot attain the privacy so that other people cannot hear you, and if this is a problem for you, then you can say it just loud enough that you can hear it and so that other people cannot hear it. It is certainly better to do this than to not say them at all.

But the ideal situation is you can be in a private sphere, where you are not bothering other people, you are not bothered by other people. And then you can say them as loud as is comfortable so that it does not stress your voice. Obviously, when the messenger is leading decrees in a group or even on the internet, he is projecting his voice more to make sure that other people can hear it. But you do not have to do that necessarily alone.

However, once you gain some experience with decrees and invocations, you will realize that there is a certain volume that feels comfortable for your voice, but still gives more power to the decrees and invocations. In other words you want to achieve a certain flow, where the speed and the volume is determined by the Spirit. It is simply the Holy Spirit flowing through you, and setting the speed and the volume, and it gives you the maximum effect. It is not something you decide with your outer mind, you just simply let it flow. As you become more and more experienced, you will almost instantly, when you start, go into that flow.

Initiations above 96th level 

Question: As the seven rays are not the Christ consciousness, so the eighth ray and beyond are Christ initiations. What do we have to do to become ready for those?


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 use the course of self-mastery, where we give you books to go through the seven rays, and rise from the 48 to the 96 level of consciousness. It does not matter whether you are already above the 48th level, you can still benefit from going through the course because it will ensure that you have past all of the initiations.

If you truly apply yourself to this course, by the time you have finished Saint Germain’s book on the Mystical initiations of Freedom, then you are ready to start on the Eighth Ray initiations. For that purpose, we have, of course, given the Master keys to Personal Christhood, and Healing your spiritual traumas and the other books in that series.

Mechanization man

Question: It was said in the Summit lighthouse that the Nephilim giants combined their seed with the animal seed. What does that mean? If that is true, do they also have a Conscious You?


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 Summit Lighthouse gave some teachings about various types of fallen beings that came from various backgrounds, which we have chosen not to repeat in this dispensation. What it means was that there was a time in the past, during Atlantis and even earlier civilizations, where they had the ability that you have today to manipulate genes. They had in fact, a more sophisticated ability.

There was a certain evolution of fallen beings that attempted to mix their own DNA with animal DNA, in order to create a certain slave race – in other words, people who were not fully self-aware. These beings originally did not have a Conscious You, because the fallen beings, of course, are not able to bestow a Conscious You on any being. This can only be bestowed by the ascended masters.

But this happened a long time ago. The vast majority of these beings are either no longer in embodiment, or they have received a Conscious You and a threefold flame as a result of their growth by being part of the collective consciousness on earth.

We did give some teachings in the Summit Lighthouse, about “mechanization man”, that was this race of genetically modified bodies that did not have a threefold flame or Conscious You, and it did not have the ability to self-transcend. They were created to be the worker bees, the slave race for the fallen beings.

What we prefer to say today is that there are people who have created so many layers of separate selves, that they are, in a way, functioning in a mechanized way, because they are not using their ability to look at themselves to step back and say: Why am I doing this? Why am I reacting this way? Could I change it? They are in a sense, in a mechanical state of consciousness.

Contrary to what most fallen beings would think, they actually fall into this category. A fallen being is not using its self-awareness to observe itself and ask itself: Why am I doing this? Why am I reacting this way? What could I change? It is functioning in a mechanical way. Now, it may seem quite sophisticated compared to these other beings that I am talking about, because it has existed for such a long time, but it is mechanical in the sense that it is not self-transcending. This is the real distinction: Is a being transcending itself by using its awareness – which is what the Conscious You is – this ability to step back from itself, and look at itself and ask these questions.

Fallen beings can do this theoretically, but they have often created so many layers by falling, perhaps through several spheres, that this ability is buried so deep that for practical purposes they cannot use it.

Some of you, including this messenger, have actually encountered fallen beings who are precisely like that. They do not have the normal self-awareness. They think that all other people look at themselves the way they look at themselves, the way they look at life. When these people say something, they think everybody else takes it as seriously and accepts it in the same way as they do. They do not have, or at least they are not willing to use the ability to step back and realize that this is not the case.

That is why some of you, in fact quite a few of you, can see people from your own lives that you can talk to again and again, try to explain something to them, but you cannot reach them. You cannot make them see this, because they are not willing or able to activate their ability to look at themselves from the outside, which is the essence of the Conscious You.

Does every human being have a Conscious You?

Question: Does every human being have a Conscious You, including native people?


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”.

Actually, the answer is no. There are some people who can have evolved from the elemental kingdom and who in rare cases can take embodiment in a human body, but they have not yet reached, they have not yet received, the Conscious You or what we in the Summit lighthouse called the threefold flame. They are two different things but nevertheless they are both part of what gives you the self-awareness that allows you to consciously transcend.

An elemental can gradually transcend its consciousness without having the same self-awareness as a human. And therefore, it can grow to the point where it can inhabit a physical body. And you can see some people on earth, they are not necessarily all native peoples, but they are very tied to the earth, very attuned with the earth. And they often want to live a certain existence at a certain level without too much change. There are some people in embodiment who do not have a Conscious You. But the vast majority of people in embodiment do.

The self that gives you a sense of continuity

Question: I’ve realized that I have a self which I call the “me self”. It does not have any particular earthly characteristics, but it gives me a sense of being myself, not somebody else, or something else. It gives me a sense of continuity that after all of the changes in my self image, it is still me. For a long time, I was believing that it was the Conscious You. But I suddenly realized that this sense of being me is just a self and it needs to die. And this realization made me terrified for two weeks. I, or rather that self, was even very angry at you the ascended masters. I was shocked by my reaction, by this fear and this anger. And after contemplating this situation for weeks, I realized that what I saw was probably my ego. Am I correct? Is this sense of continuity we have on earth coming from the ego? I sense that there is more to it, but I cannot see it clearly. Could you give some higher perspective on it?


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.

There are various aspects of the ego. And you will notice that the first teachings we gave was teachings specifically on the ego. And then later we have shifted to giving these teachings on the separate selves. Naturally, you could say: What is the ego? Well, it is a collection of separate selves. But behind all of them is the self that you created when you stepped into duality.

What you need to be careful of, and what you are sensing that there is more to it, is that you must realize that there is a difference between the first self you created after stepping into duality, and the first self you created after taking physical embodiment on a planet like earth.

The first self that you created was simply a self that allowed you to express yourself through your four lower bodies. This is the self that gives you a sense of continuity so that as you grow on the spiritual path, you can still have a sense that it is the same you that is growing, and that is why you do not lose your sense of identity. Some people do, when they seek to force their growth, and they can go through an identity crisis.

Now the subtlety is that the sense of self you created after stepping into duality also gives you a sense of continuity as a separate being. When you experience the self that is angry, that fears dying, that resents the ascended masters, this is the first self that was created by you when you were going into duality. You could say that, in the terminology used in the Summit Lighthouse, that this was the core of the “Dweller on the Threshold”. It wants to prevent your growth and hold you back. It is very correct that this self has to die.

Now, in terms of the other self, the self that simply allows you to embody on a planet like earth and have a sense of continuity, it is correct that this self is not the Conscious You, but it is the first self created by the Conscious You and therefore it will be the last self the Conscious You gives up. This is the self that simply gives you a sense of continuity. It is correct that it needs to die, but it is the last self that needs to die. It is the ghost that I gave up on the cross, and that you will give up also at the 144th level of consciousness before you ascend.

You might say that the ego self, the self that was born out of duality, is hostile to your growth. The other self you are talking about that gives you the sense of continuity is actually a part of your growth, it is even facilitating your growth. You need it in order to integrate with the four lower bodies, you need it in order to have that sense of continuity on earth. And it is also the kind of self that gives you your unique vantage point.

This is what we attempted to explain during the Christhood conference, where we said that two people can reach a certain level of Christhood, but still have different viewpoints on certain issues. Because one person looks at it from a certain vantage point, and one person looks at it from another vantage point. It is not that one is right and the other wrong. It is not that one is better than the other. It is simply different ways of looking at it.

I am not talking about dualistic viewpoints, I am talking about that even when you reach a certain level of Christhood, you can have what we have called the localized perspective. It is similar to what you can all see when you are looking through your physical eyes, you may be sitting across from a particular person, that person is looking at you and is seeing you, you are not seeing yourself you are seeing the other person. They are just two different perspectives. It is not that one is right and one is wrong, it is meaningless to apply that evaluation. It is not that one is better than the others, but one is just yours.

As long as you are in embodiment, on an unnatural planet, even for that matter on a natural planet, you must look at life from a localized perspective. And this was the self you created to give you that localized perspective when you took embodiment, and it is the last self you give up.
