How to free yourself from the trauma of childhood sexual abuse

Question: Is incest worse than an adult sexually abusing a child he or she is not related to? What can survivors of sexual abuse do to transcend the sense of unforgiveness, the sense of resentment, the self-hate, the sense that it is the worst thing that could happen to a person?


 Answer from the Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2020 Webinar – Increasing Your Christ Discernment.

Well, it depends on what you mean with: “Is it worse?” You could say that, from a certain perspective, it is not worse, because both are acts of violence. And any act of violence is a violation of the free will of the child.

But of course, there is a psychological aspect in that if you are violated by a person you trusted, then this can create a deeper psychological trauma. Again, I know that we sometimes sound repetitive on this, and I do not want you to get the impression that we are insensitive to people’s suffering, but whether you have been sexually assaulted by a family member or a stranger, this has created trauma. And as with all traumas, the effective way to heal them is to use the tools that we have given. This is not to say that you could not also benefit from various forms of therapy that are available today. I am not saying that you should exclusively use our teachings and tools, but you certainly can use the tools for healing spiritual traumas to deal with this issue as well.

You need to come to this point where you start looking at the fact that the trauma forced you to create certain selves. And these selves are very often based on certain patterns that are set up in this world, often defined by the fallen beings. They have defined some very subtle selves about feeling angry with those who have violated you, feeling resentment towards them, and even feeling hatred towards yourself for allowing this, because then it has been projected into your mind that even though you were a child at the time, you should have been able to resist this.

You need to recognize that these are collective entities created by the fallen beings that can enter your mind when you have been exposed to trauma, and set up this negative spiral that makes it very difficult for you to leave the trauma behind. And you need to recognize this, and determine that you are not going to allow the fallen beings to get away with this. You are not going to allow them to first expose you to this trauma, and then cause you to go into a reactionary pattern that means you cannot leave the trauma behind.

You have to look for these separate selves, but you also have to make certain conscious decisions, that you will not resent those who violated you, that you will not hate yourself, you will not feel you should have done differently than you did. Because if you could have done differently than you did at the time, you would have done so.

You need to have the willingness to resolve the selves, but you also need to have a certain willingness to make these firm decisions that you will forgive those who violated you, and you will forgive yourself for your own reaction to it — both when it happened and afterwards. You will forgive, you will let go, you will let the selves die and you will move on. Because as Jesus just said: “There is nothing that could happen to you from earth that you cannot overcome, if you are willing to stop identifying yourself with it and return to the sense of being pure awareness coming from the spiritual realm into embodiment on earth.”

Transhumanism is simply unrealistic dream

Question: Master Jesus, the website of the World Economic Forum provides undeniable proof that the power elite plans transhumanism for mankind. The power elite defines transhumanism as a fusion of our physical, biological and digital identities, which involves merging artificial intelligence with our physical bodies. Right now the power elite needs to manipulate our perception to control us, but if they succeeded in merging our physical bodies with artificial intelligence, then they would be able to control us directly. The manifestation of transhumanism would enable the fallen beings in the identity, mental, emotional and physical realms to effectively take the free will of human beings away, and control them as they see fit. Will the fallen beings succeed in a manifestation of transhumanism? Could you please confirm if David Icke, who has been warning about this for 30 years, is correct?


Answer from the Ascended Master Jesus through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2020 Webinar – Increasing Your Christ Discernment.

Transhumanism, as it is currently defined by certain power elite groups, is simply an unrealistic pipe dream. It is based on a materialistic outlook on life that simply is not in accord with reality. You are not materialistic beings, and therefore you cannot merge these so-called identities into one, and create a being who can function. Artificial intelligence cannot be implanted in humans. Why would it need to be, when you have natural intelligence that can be developed to ever-increasing levels?

This is not to say that there are not certain power elite groups, even some well-meaning people, who believe in this, and that this is the future of humankind. But it is simply not a realistic dream, it is not something that you need to worry about or make calls on, because it simply cannot be done as they envision it right now.

Now, this is not to say that there will not, in the future, be certain technologies released by Saint Germain that will seem somewhat similar, but that are really not what these fallen beings can envision. Again, it is not something you need to worry about or make calls on as an ascended master student.

Is that possible to return to pre-pregnancy weight? 

Question: Since I had my daughter three years ago, I am not comfortable with the way my body looks. I have not lost all the pregnancy weight. I eat now more than I used to, although I have stopped breastfeeding two years ago, and I am wondering if I am being realistic to want my pre-pregnancy body back. Is that possible?


Answer from the Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2020 Webinar – Increasing Your Christ Discernment.

Well, my beloved, some women have, of course, managed to do this. Some have had to go through a rigorous regimen of diet and exercise in order to do so. I do not want to give the impression that it is not possible at all.

But for the majority of women, it just is not realistic, because their body changes as a result of the pregnancy. And therefore, even though you make an effort with diet and exercise, you will never really get back to that level that you had before you became pregnant. This has unfortunately caused many people to decide that they are going to make the effort to try to get back, and then when they fail, they go into this endless spiral of blaming themselves, feeling inadequate, coming down upon themselves, because they were not strong enough, they were not disciplined enough, and all of these things.

It is an individual matter to try and gain some attunement, to see whether you should make the effort to get back to that same weight that you had before, or whether you should simply give it up. You need to recognize here that most women have to give up many things in order to become mothers. Maybe for you, one of the things you need to give up is the desire to return your waistline to pre-pregnancy levels. You may simply have to accept your body as it is now, and then move on with life, and adopt a positive attitude towards your body as it is now.

How to free yourself from the sense of worthlessness coming from being poor 

Question: I grew up poor. I remember that I did not have any problem being with other children who were richer than me. However, as I grew up, I started noticing how adults would make me feel like I was less than the other children because I was poor. The more I grew up, the more I did feel like I was less than my peers. I unfortunately accepted that because I didn’t have some material possessions, I didn’t have any worth. I still suffer from that feeling of unworthiness up to now. I believe, although I study your teachings, that if I don’t have a lot of money and if I don’t own the most expensive possessions, I don’t have any worth. I would like to stop believing that poor people have no worth and rich people are superior to them, that it’s only by having all the money in the world that I will be happy, and I will feel like I am somebody.


Answer from the Ascended Master Jesus through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2020 Webinar – Increasing Your Christ Discernment.

Well, again, the answer — which is almost a standard answer — is that this kind of belief, of course, comes from a separate self. And you need to use our tools to uncover that separate self and let it go. You also need to make a decision to simply not accept this belief. But of course, on a planet like this, there is a very old tradition, where the fallen beings have wanted the majority of the population to feel that they are poor, that they can only be poor, and that as a result of that, they do not have the same worth as the elite, who are rich and have power and authority. The fallen beings have created this very, very elaborate collective beast, or entity, that projects at people that your worth is defined by your outer power, your outer possessions, the amount of money you have, the fancy houses, the smart sports cars, the jewels and so on.

Now, there are people who have grown up in relatively poor circumstances and not accepted this kind of belief. This messenger is one of them. His parents gave him the impression from early childhood that it is how you behave and how you are as a human being that defines your worth, not your outer possessions or your position in society. If you have grown up in an environment where you have come to accept this belief, it is because it is part of your divine plan that you demonstrate how to get over it. Therefore, you simply need to apply the tools that we have given so you can get over this, and then demonstrate to other people in the same situation that this is indeed possible, and here is how it can be done.

It is clear from what we have said that when you have Christ discernment, you realize that a person’s worth is not defined by the outer possessions, by the amount of money, or by anything else on earth. It is not your race, it is not your nationality, it is not where you are born that matters. All that matters is your inner sense of who you are. And all people have equal worth in the eyes of God, in the eyes of Christ. As part of Christ discernment, you naturally overcome this belief.

Can a fallen being become a student of the ascended masters?

Question: Can a fallen being become a student of the ascended masters?


Answer from Ascended Master Jesus through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2020 Webinar – Increasing Your Christ Discernment.

Well, yes, and it has indeed happened to quite a number of them. Not so many in this dispensation, but especially in the Summit Lighthouse there were many fallen beings, not necessarily the highest ranking ones, but there were many people who were close to the messenger, and even on staff, who were fallen beings. In most cases, it was because they had followed the leaders as fallen beings, and the messenger had volunteered, the messenger for the Summit Lighthouse, had volunteered to give these lifestreams an opportunity to rediscover the path to Christhood.

You can, of course, always raise the question: “Can a fallen being become a student of the outer path and the outer teachings of the ascended masters?” And the answer is yes. And then you can go on and ask: “Can a fallen being become a student of the inner path, and really, truly lock into the teachings of the ascended masters?”

Experience shows us that some fallen beings can indeed do this, but relatively few of them. Many of those who have become students of ascended master teachings have not locked into the inner path. They have not passed the second challenge of Christ. They have come to that point where the very illusion that caused them to fall, gave them such a sense of reality that they were not willing to question it. Even when they were confronted with this need to question this illusion — whether it was done by the messenger, or from within, or by other people — then they refused to question it. Some of them even left the organization, became disgruntled with the messenger or criticized the messenger, and so on.

It is difficult to help these fallen beings from an ascended master perspective, and that is why we are no longer focusing so much on this — although, in the early years of this dispensation, we did attempt to use this messenger to give certain initiations to certain fallen beings that were part of this movement in the early years. We also gave many teachings that were meant to help these beings overcome their illusions and step onto the inner path. But again, relatively few of them managed to do this.

The best position for giving invocations and decrees 

Question: Beloved masters, could you tell me if the rosaries and decrees can be recited while lying down? Or will the light of the ascended masters not come to me in this way? In what position is the efficiency of reading decrees most effective?


Answer from Ascended Master Jesus through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2020 Webinar – Increasing Your Christ Discernment.

Well, again, and we do not want to give you a black and white view of this, but it is clear that if you look at traditions going far, far back in the east, you see that people have always been sitting somewhat upright with their spine erect during a meditative posture or while chanting. This is because when the spine is upright, and fairly straight, then the light can most easily rise through the chakras, from the base chakra to the crown. It is clear that if you want the maximum efficiency, it is better to sit somewhat straight, but still sit in a comfortable position. For decrees, it is better not to have your legs crossed, but to sit on a chair, where you can sit in a comfortable position that you can hold for some time.

Of course, if you have some kind of condition that makes it difficult for you to sit up, then you can of course lay down and recite invocations and decrees. They may not have exactly the same efficiency in terms of raising the light along the spinal column, but they will still have a high degree of efficiency, especially if you focus in your heart and really put your heart into giving them. So it can of course be done, and it is, of course, better to do it from a lying position, than not to do it at all.

Feeling of being behind

Question:  At times I have a feeling which others may experience. It is the feeling of being behind. From a practical perspective, what frame of mind or attention can assist in breaking this state of consciousness, or state of mind?


Answer from Ascended Master Jesus through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2020 Webinar- Increasing Your Christ Discernment.

Well, in the early days after he discovered the spiritual path, this messenger often had that feeling of being behind. It was partly caused by the fact that he grew up in an anti-spiritual society, where there was nothing that stimulated his spiritual growth. It was not until he was 18 years old that he realized there was a spiritual path, and it was not until several years later that he discovered the ascended master teachings, and so in the beginning, he felt that he was behind where he could have been if he had had a spiritual teaching earlier. And this is the case for many of you.

You have a certain divine plan, there is a certain timetable built into that divine plan, and you can often have an intuitive sense that you are behind that ideal timetable. It is not really a matter of making that feeling go away. It is a matter of recognizing that you have this feeling, and then asking for inner direction and contemplating this. How are you behind? What is it that you can do to get back to the timetable you defined in your divine plan? Then you can open yourself up to receiving these intuitive insights from the Christ mind. And you can, of course, give various novenas and exercises and invocations to facilitate this. Then you may well receive these insights, if you are open and neutrally asking, what you can do to catch up to where you yourself wanted to be at this time.

How is the Lord Maitreya connected to Lord Ganesha? 

Question: A question for the Great Divine Director. I read somewhere on the Summit Lighthouse website that your causal body is somehow connected to that of Lord Ganesha, who is much revered in Hinduism. I am an ascended master student who has grown up in a Hindu culture, so it is of great interest to me. What exactly does this mean? I would like to have a better understanding of your Being, as I often pay my respects to Lord Ganesha too, and would like to know your thoughts on this. It would dissipate confusion, and maybe help let go of mental images I have created for yourself and Lord Ganesha as well.


 Answer from the Ascended Master The Great Divine Director through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2020 Webinar – Increasing Your Christ Discernment.

Well, my beloved, we have, both through previous organizations and dispensations, and this one, attempted to somewhat bridge the gap between various religions wherever it has been possible. We have, in previous dispensations, given certain teachings about the connection between myself and Lord Ganesha. Now, it is important to realize here that you cannot be too literal about these things, you cannot look too much at the specifics. It is clear that the very outer form that Lord Ganesha has been given in Hinduism really has no bearing on who I am as a cosmic being, because this is a form based on the images and the animal forms you find on earth, and of course, I am beyond all of this.

But what can be valid is to maintain a certain connection between various religions. Obviously, in this dispensation, we talk about Shiva, we talk about Krishna, even though not very much, but we have mentioned it, and so then attempted to establish a connection between the ascended masters and the Hindu gods and goddesses. And this is valid enough as an interim stage. But it is clear that we are not really seeking to attract a great number of Hindus, because in order to really step up and become an ascended master student, you need to be willing to look beyond the Hindu religion and its outer expressions.

The Hindu religion is a very diversified religion, so many gods and goddesses, so many rituals, so many images, so many customs, that it is literally overwhelming to most people. It is a little bit like the Jewish religion that has also become so set in customs, traditions and rituals, that there is very little room for the spirit to enter. You can, of course, use these parallels, such as the parallel between Lord Ganesha and myself, the dictations of Shiva and other eastern masters, Kuan Yin and others, to maybe bridge the gap between various eastern religions. We have, of course, talked about the Buddha and the Buddhist religion, and Gautama Buddha has given many teachings through this messenger, and so it can be valid for people who are open to something beyond their own religion.

But if people are still very much identified with their religion, be it Buddhism or Hinduism, then we do not intend to have our students go out and try to convert people to an ascended master teaching. This needs to be something people are ready for at inner levels, before they will be open to it. It is not our vision that we create some kind of movement where people go out and become missionaries like you see in the Christian churches, where they go out on these missionary expeditions to convert other people to their religion, and have them abandon their old one. But of course, there is nothing wrong with people who have grown up in a Hindu environment taking various teachings or rituals, such as decrees and invocations, from the ascended masters’ teachings, and still maintaining some customs from the Hindu religion.

How to move towards a more balanced state of mind

Question: Is there phase on the spiritual path where we experience a shattering of our outer life and norms, where our lives are turned upside down and we experience loss and a stripping away of what we have come to rely on for continuity in our day-to-day existence, where we are forced to rely completely on our Christ Self and I AM Presence to survive and take the next step? Also, why is it that some of us have very extreme experiences on the path, such as depression or mental breakdown, and have great difficulty surviving these experiences and moving on from them? Why do some of us have experiences such as these during our spiritual awakening that we never really get over, and have to carry them with us for the duration of our current lifetime?


Answer from the Ascended Master Jesus through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2020 Webinar – Increasing Your Christ Discernment.

Well, again, you need to recognize that you live on a very, very difficult planet. Walking the spiritual path, especially the path to Christhood, is a very difficult task on a planet like earth. You have had many past lifetimes where you have been exposed to various traumatic experiences, and you have created various separate selves in response to this. What we can say is that the more traumas you still have from the past, the more you have a tendency to have an unbalance in your lifestream, in your four lower bodies. And the more unbalance you have in your four lower bodies, the more you tend to have these more extreme experiences on the path.

Depression and mental illness are certainly a sign that you have very severe traumas and wounds in your four lower bodies, but also the sense that you have completely lost your sense of continuity. This is something that has happened to various people, in some cases as a result of a Kundalini rising, in some cases for other reasons. And what we have attempted to do, especially in this dispensation, is to give you a very balanced path, and a very balanced approach, so you can avoid having these more extreme experiences.

It is completely possible to walk the path to Christhood while having a more balanced experience. There will be some swings, there are certain initiations you need to face, and you certainly need to face the initiation of being willing to give up things in order to take the next step on the path. And there comes a point where you need to demonstrate that you are willing to give up anything on earth in order to take another step up to a decisively higher level.

When this messenger became a messenger, he had to demonstrate to me that he was willing to give up anything on earth, even his life on earth, in order to rise to a higher level. But this was not a shattering of his norms and sense of continuity, because he had already attained a high degree of balance in past lives.

For those of you who have not attained this balance in past lives, again, we have given all of our teachings on healing the spiritual traumas to help you move towards a more balanced state. It is understandable that people can have very traumatic experiences, of a mental breakdown, for example, or depression, and feel like they can never really overcome this in this lifetime. However, this is an illusion promoted by the fallen beings and the collective consciousness.

There is nothing you could encounter on earth that you cannot overcome, if you are willing to use the tools and the teachings we have given. And willing, of course, also to make the decisions that need to be made of letting certain selves die.

There are people who have gone through various traumatic experiences, whether it is outer experiences or psychological conditions, mental illness, and who have built a certain self at the identity level as being a victim of such circumstances, even defining themselves based on these circumstances.

And it is understandable that people have created this self, but I must tell you straightforwardly that there comes a point where you cannot make progress unless you confront this self, see it as a separate self, and decide to let it die, so that you can rise to a higher level of identity where you are no longer defined by these past occurrences.

Anything in your past, you can overcome. I am not trying to hereby put pressure on people, because I know very well that many people have been severely wounded and it will take them time to heal it. But you need to know that anything that has happened on earth cannot affect your I AM Presence, cannot affect the Conscious You, and therefore the Conscious You can be free of it, when it is able to make the decision to let it go.

But as we have said, that requires, in most cases, the confrontation of many separate selves that you need to let die one by one, precisely so that you avoid losing your sense of continuity. You do it gradually, but you need to keep in mind that the Conscious You is not defined by anything that has happened on earth, and you can return to that state of pure awareness, but you can only do so by giving up these separate selves that pull you away from it.

How to find a balanced approach to selfless service

Question: I came to see this one outer self in my psychology, which was indeed very subtle, namely that I submitted my free will myself to service. The question I had in my mind was always: “How can I best serve the world?” Rather than: “What do I enjoy to bring forth?” It was passive and submissive, a very unbalanced way of service. I think many of the spiritual people probably have this outer self. Can the ascended masters give some advice on how to best deal with this outer self?


Answer from the Ascended Master Jesus through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2020 Webinar – Increasing Your Christ Discernment.

Well, anything can become unbalanced. And it is of course, the characteristic of the ego, and even the fallen beings seeking to influence you, that they want to take every progress you make on the path and distort it by making you unbalanced in your approach to it. There is, of course, a stage on the path — the lower stages — where you are completely focused on yourself, you are very self-centered, looking at only your own self-interest, seeing yourself as separated from others, and always, as the saying goes, looking out for number one, meaning looking out for yourself.

There comes a point on the path where you begin to overcome this, and now it is natural that you focus on how you can serve others. But of course, any quality can become unbalanced on a planet like earth, and you can indeed, as you correctly express, create this self that suppresses your natural creative drive.

Now in many cases, this self is not existing alone. It is actually supported by other selves, because you can have certain selves that were created in distant past lifetimes where you were very self-centered and focused, and so you created certain selves that are based on the belief that selfishness is wrong, selfishness must be avoided, and therefore, you should avoid focusing on yourself, and you should focus on doing something for others. In fact, the Christian religion, by raising this ideal of service, selfless service, has contributed to this process where many people, spiritual and religious people, feel that they should serve, and that in order to serve others they need to suppress any kind of desires for expression or experiences that they have themselves.

There are also ascended master students who have felt this way, and who therefore have become unbalanced in doing what they conceived to be a service. This messenger himself, in his early years in the Summit Lighthouse, spent so much time doing decrees that he neglected other aspects of life, and as he realized at a certain point, he even used the decrees, and a desire to decree to improve the world, as an excuse for not looking at his psychology. He started looking at his psychology, and by resolving the psychology, he eventually rose to a level where he could begin to give truly selfless service. But of course, even as a messenger for the ascended masters, you can become so unbalanced that you think you have to focus all of your energy, time and attention on just doing the work, whereas you never allow yourself to relax or enjoy other activities.

This is of course something that applies to students as well, and we have attempted to give many, many teachings that talk about the need for balance, so that you find a personal balance where you, first of all, recognize there may be certain experiences that you have decided to have on earth, and you may not have entirely finished having those experiences. Then it is legitimate to participate in those experiences, so that you can come to a point where you feel you have had enough of it. You are also given teachings about how to avoid that this becomes a downward spiral, where you never have enough.

There is, of course, also the issue of creative expression, where your I AM Presence can have certain legitimate desires to express something on this planet, and it is correct that many people have used the ideal of selfless service to deny the I AM Presence  the ability to be the open door. Basically, how can you come to a point where you find more balance? Well, again, only by looking at these selves, looking at the belief that causes you to have an unbalanced view of what selfless service is. Selfless service really does not mean that you focus on other people. This is sort of the beginning stages of selfless service. You think you have set aside your own desires and focus on other people, but this can also be the ego that has a desire. Many Christians have this desire to prove that they are selfless people by serving others. But it is, of course, a desire that springs from the ego, and therefore does not help raise their consciousness.

What you need to realize is that truly selfless service means that you overcome the outer self, and these separate selves that pull you into unbalanced reactions. That way, you can come to a point where you will, number one, recognize: “I have certain desires for certain experiences on earth, and I need to have those experiences.” And you also recognize that: “My I AM Presence wants to express certain creative expressions through me, and I need to make time and attention for this in my life. Therefore, I need to find a balance where my service still allows time and attention for these other aspects of my divine plan and my spiritual growth.” This is a decision to make, partly a conscious decision, but you cannot fully make that decision until you resolve these selves that pull you into this unbalanced reaction.

How did the avatars depart from their teacher?

Question: My question is pertaining to avatars. In the teachings, especially those of Lord Maitreya and the Garden of Eden, there is a point of departure from the original teacher, and that is how those lifestreams entered into duality. How did the avatars who came to earth as volunteers depart from their teacher? There are teachings and invocations that try to help us intuitively find out what was our original point of departure from the teacher. But I’m not clear whether many avatars would have been around in the Garden of Eden when this happened originally, or does this symbolize a type of veil that they took on when they first descended into embodiment on earth? I haven’t understood this teaching well, and if this has already been given to us, I am unaware, and would be happy to be pointed to the book or teaching.


Answer from the Ascended Master Lord Maitreya through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2020 Webinar – Increasing Your Christ Discernment.

Well, my book, Master Keys to Spiritual Freedom, talks in great detail about what happened in the Garden of Eden, which has traditionally, in ascended master teachings, been seen as Maitreya’s Mystery School. Now, of course, there are some limitations to this view if you attempt to interpret it literally. It was, for example, in the Summit Lighthouse, said that the Garden of Eden was Maitreya’s Mystery School, and this was said to be the original descent of lifestreams into embodiment on earth, in other words, at the very beginning of the earth.

But it was also said in the Summit Lighthouse that there came a point where the earth was in a downward spiral, and Sanat Kumara descended with 144,000 from Venus, and the first person to respond to them was Gautama Buddha, and then I, Maitreya, was the second person to respond. Gautama ascended first, and I ascended later. If you take this with a linear mind, and want to put this on a linear timeline, it would seem that it could not have been that I could be both the teacher in the Garden of Eden at the first descent of lifestreams to earth, and then have ascended as Lord Maitreya, later. And this is, of course, correct enough. You simply need to recognize that there is a certain office that is the Office of Maitreya, and that it is not necessarily the same being that has held this office throughout the entire history of the earth. You actually have more than one ascended being with the name Maitreya.

The intent behind the book, Master Keys to Spiritual Freedom, is first of all to reach out to the original lifestreams that descended to earth, and those who went into duality, and did so by leaving the teacher behind, because they came to this point of thinking that, with their outer minds, they could define, or divine, what was truth and error, so they could know good and evil — be “as gods, knowing good and evil”. This is not to say that avatars cannot benefit from the book, because avatars have gone through a similar process. It could have happened on a natural planet, and it could have been why the avatars descended to a planet like earth. It could also have happened after you came to earth and encountered the fallen beings.

You need to recognize here that an avatar who descends to earth will be prepared. In other words, you will not come from a natural planet and descend directly into physical embodiment. You will descend to the etheric level, where you will enter the equivalent of a mystery school, and you will be prepared there for taking embodiment at the physical level.

But the question then is how you respond to that teacher if you had a very, very strong desire to come to earth to provide specific improvements, and to remove certain problems from earth, or expose certain problems, then you might be so eager to do this that you are not fully listening to the teacher. And therefore, you leave the mystery school prematurely because you think you are now ready to go into embodiment. And this is also a departure from the teacher, not exactly the same as the original inhabitants, but similar enough that you can at least benefit from contemplating these teachings.

How to find a balanced approach to money 

Question: I feel like I’m not ready to spend most of my energy and time just earning a living anymore, and I want to devote myself to being an open door for my I AM Presence. However, now I do not see any options for how I could get the means of living by expressing it, and in my country, it is quite difficult to make money. One needs to make a significant effort to earn at least a little money. How realistic is it to manifest an abundant life in the current situation on the planet, when you don’t focus on making money, and can work to raise yourself and all life, without worrying about how to make money?


Answer from the Ascended Master Jesus through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2020 Webinar – Increasing Your Christ Discernment.

Well, you can begin with my saying that you cannot serve two masters, you cannot serve God and mammon. But of course, this saying has many deeper meanings, and it is not just about your attitude to money. But what you can begin to contemplate is the attitude that you have towards money, and the attitude that you grew up with about money. In many countries, you have people who are brought up with this attitude that if you are born into a poor family, then you can only remain poor for the rest of your life. This is, in a sense, serving mammon instead of serving God, because you are letting money, or rather, the lack of money, define you.

The other opposite polarity here is that you spend all of your time and attention on making money, thinking that once you have made enough money, then you can relax, and then you can retire, and then you can be spiritual. There are many people in all nations, but of course, more in the richer nations, who are focusing all of their energy on making as much money as possible and it, of course, takes them away from spiritual focus.

But there are also many people who are poor, and who think they cannot make money, and who feel that it is a struggle to make enough to satisfy the basic needs, and they are also serving mammon. This is another unbalanced attitude towards money.

And you can work on this, uncover the selves and overcome those selves, and then you might find that things will open up for you. You will have a more balanced approach, whereby you can make enough money to take care of your physical needs and still have time and energy and attention left over to focus on the spiritual needs. But this requires your willingness to look at these separate selves that you have created, often in many past lifetimes, but certainly also in this lifetime, as a response to the environment in which you grew up, and the attitude towards money found there.

How to heal sexual trauma 

Question: The masters have released not so many teachings about sexual energy and sexual traumas, whereas this is one of the most difficult topics for people. Can you tell us more about the causes of sexual desires and arousal, how to deal with them and how to heal sexual traumas? In my experience, it is the multiple sexual injuries that create lust. How to transcend lust?


Answer from the Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2020 Webinar – Increasing Your Christ Discernment.

Well, there is really no difference between a sexual trauma and other kinds of traumas, it is just a matter of what causes it, but the process that takes place in your four lower bodies is very similar. If you are exposed to violence, whether it be of a sexual nature or not, it creates a certain trauma, and that is why all of the teachings we have given on healing your spiritual traumas and the other books in the series are applicable to dealing with sexual traumas.

Sexual trauma does not actually create lust. Lust is created by entities in the emotional realm that invade your energy field. But it is, of course, the traumas that make your emotional body open to being invaded by these entities and demons. Again, invoking spiritual protection, cutting yourself free by giving calls to Astrea, are valuable tools, but ultimately you need to resolve the trauma and the belief behind it that makes you susceptible to it.

It is not, of course, only traumas or lust that create the sexual desire. It is also a natural functioning of the body, and even a legitimate desire to experience one of the activities you can experience on earth. As long as your sexual desires are balanced, as we have said several times, there is not anything inherently unspiritual about it. It is simply something you do, as one of the activities you do on earth, without making any kind of epic battle out of it. Unfortunately, the fallen beings, through various spiritual and religious movements, have tried to make sex into an epic battle, where there is something you need to fight in order to grow spiritually, and this is not something we support or encourage.

Can we ascend not from the earth but from the etheric realm?

Question: Is it possible to ascend not from the physical plane if you did not manage to reach the 144th level of consciousness, but have passed the 96th level mark and then ascend from the identity realm? In other words, is it possible to finish your journey from the 96th to the 144th level of consciousness by not staying on the physical earth?


Answer from Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2020 Webinar – Increasing Your Christ Discernment.

Well, actually, I will just answer that, because they have given teachings that you can reach a level where you do not have to come back in embodiment. And you can finish the rest of what you need to resolve from, for example, the etheric realm, the identity level.

And the reason for this is that in the Summit Lighthouse, for example, it was said that there was a dispensation given that you could ascend with 51% of your karma balanced instead of 100%. And the masters have said that, the reason for this is that the 51% that you balance first is the karma you have with other people and the 49% is the karma you have with yourself, meaning basically, your unresolved psychology and your separate selves. This can be resolved from a higher level.

How to free yourself from being overwhelmed by other people’s suffering 

Question: I have a very developed sensitivity and I feel the suffering and pain of people as if I am experiencing it myself. I often feel that I am an open door to unconditional love but I am also actually an open door to the suffering and pain that I am always connected to. It feels like I am all soaked up in this suffering and I cannot feel good knowing how other people are suffering. I feel like it has been going on since my very first incarnations, and I still cannot relate to it. I wonder how can one be sensitive but not suffer while being incarnated here? In addition, I am very focused on expressing myself, life, light, health, service outside. I like it, but almost all my attention is focused on what I can do and bring, and on the people around me, on my psychology of course too. Without it my life becomes empty and meaningless. It seems to me that these two states are connected, and I cannot quite distinguish what comes from the I AM Presence and what comes from separate selves.


Answer from the Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2020 Webinar – Increasing Your Christ Discernment.

Well, my beloved, there are avatars who have come to this earth, often having already some compassion for the suffering of the people on earth, wanting to help alleviate that suffering. Then when you come into your embodiment, one of your first embodiments, and are exposed to a very severe trauma that gives birth to your primal self, your emotional body is opened completely to the suffering of other people. You are so overwhelmed by this suffering, that it becomes the dominant aspect of your primal self.

You almost we might say, retreat from being in embodiment, and decide that you do not want to be here, you did not come here to express yourself or experience anything on earth, you only came here to help the suffering of other people and therefore this is the only thing that matters. Whereas you yourself and whatever goals you might have, or your I AM Presence might have with you being here, do not matter and you have to suppress your creativity and the expression of your light.

Now, it is very, very important to recognize that such a condition is because you have holes in your emotional body that ties you into these collective vortexes of suffering. You are not really helping alleviate the suffering of this planet by allowing yourself to be overpowered by this. So you can start by making calls for the protection of your emotional body, for Astrea to cut you free from ties to the collective body, to the astral plane.

But in the longer run, you need to uncover the selves, you need to uncover the decision that caused you to open your emotional body and think that you had to do this. You also need to deal with the fact that there will be some projections, or even some separate selves that say that it is selfish of you to close off your sensitivity to other people. But as Jesus just explained, it is not selfish to not allow yourself to be pulled down by other people’s emotions. And if you come to a point where you cannot enjoy life, and you cannot express yourself in a positive way, this is not benefiting the planet. This is not benefiting the collective consciousness.

So you need to use the tools we have given you to resolve these selves, to resolve the birth trauma, the primal self, and get to a point where you can have a positive attitude to being on earth. You can realize, as Jesus also said, but in a slightly different shading, that free will must be allowed to outplay itself. People have used their free will to create their current suffering. You are not in control of people’s free will and therefore there is no reason for you to suspend your own free choices in order to feel the suffering of other people. You have a right to simply raise yourself above other people’s suffering and come to the point where you can be on this planet without suffering personally. But you can also be on this planet and express the light, the individuality, the creativity that flows from your I AM Presence. Ultimately, it is expressing this creativity that will raise the collective consciousness and improve conditions on the planet.

You are not alleviating people’s misery by allowing yourself to be feeling and being overwhelmed by their misery. I know that misery wants company but this does not alleviate the misery. So again, if you allow yourself to feel this and shut off your creativity, you are part of the problem, you are not part of the solution. You came here because you wanted to be part of the solution so you need to reconnect to that original drive, you need to reconnect to the driver, your I AM Presence, to express something creative and positive on this planet.

What to eat and drink 

Question: Which drinks are healthier water, milk, green tea or something else? How to clean and change food with positive energy?


Answer from the Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2020 Webinar – Increasing Your Christ Discernment.

Well, again there is no single answer to this because it is individual for each person. You need to simply experiment and you need to tune in to what works best for you. One of the really big problems that we have as ascended masters, is that people always have this tendency to look for the ultimate solution, the final solution, the solution that will solve all of their problems. So they of course want us to say “pancha tea” is the most healthy drink you can drink so they can believe that if they drink nothing but “pancha tea”, then they will be healthy. And this, of course is not the case, it never was, it never will be.

What you can do about food is you can bless your food, bless anything you take into your body. And you do not have to make an elaborate ritual out of this, you can simply say a silent prayer inside your mind every time you eat. And this messenger, for example, has for years just made a simple call to me to bless the food and transform it into the perfect nurturance that will nurture his physical body and give him the energy and the clarity of mind he needs to fulfill his divine plan. There is no one way this has to be done, you can make up your own prayer that appeals to you, and to whatever master appeals to you, and you can then bless the food.

And it does not mean that you can eat junk food and you will certainly be healthy, but it will still have a positive effect on the food you eat. In terms of what specific foods, this is again, so individual, that you simply need to experiment and feel what is right for your body at the present time. Do not fall into the trap of thinking that once you have found the right kind of food, this will be the right kind of food for the rest of your life. Because things can change over time. There can also come a point at the higher levels of Christhood where it is no longer so important what you eat because it does not have that big of an effect on you anymore.

Vibrational and energetic medicine

Question: How can we use certain energy frequencies to destroy any type of virus? Is it possible to use energy frequencies to restore eyesight here on the head? What are these frequencies? Are there already such technologies on earth? If not, what does it take to make these technologies available to people?


Answer from the Ascended Master Saint Germain through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2020 Webinar – Increasing Your Christ Discernment.

Well, in the golden age, vibrational or energetic medicine will become the main form of medicine. But this requires a shift not only in the scientific community, but also in the collective consciousness. And most people, or a critical mass of people, are simply not ready to make that shift. The frequencies, it will be too technical for me to reveal them here but there are people who are in embodiment and who already started researching this and who have quite a bit of awareness.

And I am of course, always willing to use people who have that awareness to release new technology, new ideas. So this is something that is in process. And there are even people who are aware of ascended master teachings who have awareness of this and are researching these things, but it will take some time before they will become more effective and before they will become accepted.

But of course, it is a necessary part of the golden age process that vibrational medicine becomes broadly recognized and broadly used. Now, it is clear that this will require a shift in the collective consciousness where people simply demand the most effective form of cures, and do away with those who are seeking to use current medicine, allopathic medicine, because it allows them to make a huge profit.

It is clear that you can make a profit selling certain devices that produce these vibrational frequencies, but you cannot patent the frequencies themselves and therefore you can sell a device that can perform the treatment, but you cannot charge money for every treatment performed. This simply will not be realistic. You can sell a light bulb to people, but you cannot charge money every time they turn it on.

2020 women’s protests in Poland

Question: Could the masters comment and give a higher perspective on the young women’s protest in Poland that started as a reaction to tightening of the abortion law and the patriarchal mentality in Poland?


Answer from the Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2020 Webinar – Increasing Your Christ Discernment.

Well, it is clear, my beloved that Poland has for several years been in a downward spiral because the current government and their tight connections to the Catholic Church have basically undermined some of the progress that Poland had made as a democratic nation. It is clear that there are certain things that are undermining democracy, such as interfering with the courts, and so forth.

So this has caused quite a number of especially young people in Poland to become dissatisfied with the current government and with the church and they are ready to question this. What you see in this latest abortion restrictions is simply that this was sort of the last drop that caused the cup to overflow or the dam to break. People took to the streets and protested against this, which of course, is a very necessary movement in terms of bringing change to Poland.

It is clear that while the current government can be seen as a necessary step in Poland’s process, it is by no means the final step, there needs to be an entirely different approach to government in Poland. And the current government was, again, just a teaching device to see that going to extremes simply will not work. You need to find a more nuanced, a more diversified approach to the problems, because there is not just a simple black and white solution. Black and white thinking does not resolve problems in this day and age.

And this is what is becoming clear in many, many countries around the world, including what has the potential to become clear in the United States, after four years of a president who is blinded by black and white thinking. I know that some people will dispute this, but it is a fact of neutrally observing the President’s mindset and comparing it to our teachings about black and white thinking and you cannot if you are neutral, fail to see it.

The World Economic Forum and the Great Reset Initiative

Question: Do the masters have a comment about the World Economic Forum, and a great reset initiative for building back the world economy and social structures? And is this in accord with Saint Germain’s vision for the golden age?


Answer from the Ascended Master Saint Germain through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2020 Webinar – Increasing Your Christ Discernment.

Well, my beloved, there is no black and white answer to a question like this. The World Economic Forum and the meetings in Davos do serve in some capacity to create dialogue between people from different parts of the world. Originally, it was more of a power elite club, but it has, in recent years been expanded and diversified, so there are different viewpoints that are at least being heard.

Of course, there is always the power elite behind this who are meeting in their closed meetings and attempting to lay out their vision for how the world should form. And these power elite people are of course, not in alignment with my vision for the golden age. However, do not underestimate the fact that any kind of forum or initiative that gets people from many different parts of the world to come together in dialogue, is an important step towards changing current conditions. It is important in terms of people getting to know each other, building a certain sense of connection, that is part of the basic humanity—that you realize that other people are somewhat like yourself, and have the same interests and so forth.

There is a certain value to all of this. This is not to say that I sponsored this, or that I am in total agreement with what is going on. But what I am saying is that even though something is basically run by the fallen beings, it can still have effects that they are not really aware of, or that they do not intend. So even this great reset initiative (which is not in alignment with my vision for the golden age either) but it can still have a positive effect in terms of getting people to think about certain issues. It is clear that the economy has taken such a great downward turn because of the COVID 19 pandemic, that something drastic needs to be done. And the fact that there are people who are realizing that something drastic needs to be done is a step in the right direction.

Now, if you look at what these people are proposing, it is not the kind of changes I have talked about: about recreating the monetary system, getting rid of a debt-based economy, overturning the financial elite and the financial system so you cannot make money off of money, and those kinds of things. They are talking about things that basically maintains the fundamental capitalist economy, while somewhat addressing the fact that the economy is in danger of collapsing because of the pandemic. It is literally like putting a band aid on a wound, instead of stitching it up.

But nevertheless, it is still necessary that people at least come together and think about this, take various initiatives, and this can then, over time, lead to some people becoming more open to the ideas that will actually bring change. Of course, a big issue as a result of the pandemic is how the world economy is going to fare after the pandemic subsides? What is going to happen? Is it possible to build the economy back up to where it was before and pretend like nothing happened? Or will there be certain collapses in the economy so that it will be necessary to create more drastic changes? This is yet to be seen. It depends very much on how leaders respond, but also how the people respond, and whether they demand a different form of economy.

Donal Trump is part of the problem, not the solution

Question: It was my impression from the last webinar, that it did not make much of a difference to you who would win the presidency. It would be another four years of this dualistic struggle, with neither party addressing the likely debt economy implosion. However, Biden’s new cabinet, if he wins, is a return to the status quo with the power elite’s people in all the most powerful positions in the government. What is so good about that? And why should the Democratic Party be rewarded after four years of lies and deception in their continuous attacks, and coup attempts against Trump? Clearly, the power elite used everything at their disposal to get rid of Trump from Wall Street to Silicon Valley; activists to Hollywood and of course, the media. Trump has obvious weaknesses besides his narcissism, but I would think he is still better than the representative of the powers that be, he also seemed to have some good people in his cabinet. My question is this, what is so bad about Trump?


Answer from the Ascended Master Saint Germain through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2020 Webinar – Increasing Your Christ Discernment.

Donald Trump has been a very good teacher for the American people. Even though the majority of those who call themselves Trump supporters have so far not learned the lesson that they had the potential to learn from his presidency.

Now you say yourself that Trump has obvious weaknesses, besides his narcissism. But his narcissism is precisely the issue. This is what makes him a good teacher. Because the lesson that Americans have the potential to learn from the Trump presidency, is why they do not want a narcissist as their president. Why they do not want a person who is trapped in black and white thinking. And who is simply seeing the presidency and the country and for that matter the world, as an extension for his personal quest: to elevate himself to some superior status, that only he really knows what is.

The reality here is that, for America to move forward and move into the golden age, the American people need to attract presidents who are completely focused on serving the people. The only way that America can move out of being ruled by the power elite, is if they have leaders who are focused on serving the people, not the elite. And neither the Democratic Party nor the Republican party are at that point yet. And so, neither party is able to really question the elite. But the reason for this is actually, that there has not been a critical mass of people who have reached a level where they are willing to question the elite. What will it take for the American people to come to the point where they can question the power elite? Well, it will take that they reach beyond the level of selfishness where they are only focused on themselves and what they perceive to be in their own short term self-interest.

Donald Trump is an example of a person who is entirely focused on what he perceives as his self-interest. This is precisely what gave him an appeal to many Americans who are at that level of consciousness also. Not the same level as him, but certainly at that level of being focused on what they right now perceive as their self-interest, without being open to the possibility that they could raise their consciousness and gain a higher vision. Now, you do see that there are, of course, Americans who are focused on this, but there are not enough of them to have a decisive outcome on the leadership of the nation.

Quite frankly, most Americans are so focused on just America and their own situation, that they are not able to grasp any higher vision for what America meant when it was founded, or what is the potential for America and the golden age. These people are not open to questioning the power elite. As we just said, that people can hold a dictator in power for many years because they are afraid of change, so are there Americans who are afraid of change. And many Americans are not ready to look at the radical changes that are needed—the revolutionary changes that are needed for America to enter the golden age.

Because they are afraid of what will happen if you question the financial system, if you change the money system, if you get rid of allowing people to make money off of money, get rid of the entire financial elite and the power elite. They also are afraid to question what will it take for our country to have a higher level of what we have called social awareness, awareness of humanity that you see in many European countries, where they are not allowing people to have no health care, to have no unemployment benefits, where there is no social safety net.

Many Americans are not willing to question this because they believe the economy cannot handle it. But as we have said before, once there is a decision that we want a certain standard of living, then the entire system will adjust so it is possible to manifest that standard of living in that country.

You see here again, that the issue, from our perspective, is the people and the power elite. Now, I know that there are many Trump supporters who will say: “But he has gone against the political establishment, he has questioned them, he has spoken out against them”. Well, but the reality is that if you look at the life of Donald Trump, he came from a background where his father considered himself part of the power elite. I know there are many among the old power elite America who would not consider Donald Trump to be part of the power elite, but his father and himself certainly did.

So, they are aspiring to be part of the power elite. And he has not questioned the financial system, the financial elite, the money system, because he is or wants to be part of it—he sees himself as part of it. You cannot expect a person who wants to be part of the power elite to question or overturn the power elite. It is simply not possible, even if he wanted to, which he does not.

You see here that Americans have not yet risen in sufficient numbers, to what we call this basic humanity, the social awareness, where they are willing to say: “We should take care of everybody in our society”. And until they do that, there cannot really be leaders who can seriously question the power elite.

There can be some who can bring America, step-by-step in that direction. But there cannot be a serious questioning of the power elite until there is that shift in the collective consciousness.

Literary works written from the Christ consciousness

Question:  Are there any literary works written from the level of Christ consciousness?


Answer from the Ascended Master Jesus through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2020 Webinar – Increasing Your Christ Discernment.

There are many literary works that contain elements of the Christ consciousness or ideas that come from the Christ consciousness. But it depends on what level of Christ consciousness you are talking about, as we will talk about more during this webinar, there are different levels of Christ consciousness. There are relatively few that are written from the higher levels of Christ consciousness. You need to recognize, as we will expound more upon, that Christ consciousness for the 48th level of consciousness is not the same as Christ consciousness for the 124th level of consciousness.

There are literary works that are written with an inspiration from the Christ consciousness, but they were aimed at for example, people below the 48th level of consciousness. You will see that many literary works throughout the ages fit this category where an author was able to bring forth some new perspective, perhaps even make people realize the plight of the lower classes, the difficulty that people were going through and therefore open up society to a new way to look at the poor and to address inequality in society.

There are many of such literary works. There were Tolstoy, Dostoevsky, Wagner, Dickens. Many of the known authors have had a certain inspiration that have allowed them to bring forth these works that have shifted the collective consciousness in various ways. There are many more than I am mentioning here, I am just mentioning a few examples.

You will not benefit from going through such works and comparing them. And you certainly will not benefit from thinking that a certain literary work is entirely from the Christ consciousness just because it contains certain ideas. There can be a book that has one idea that is from the Christ consciousness and the rest is just a story that is told from the human level in order to get people to be interested and receive that one idea. There can be some books that have several ideas, but there is still a human interest story that makes people read the book. You cannot necessarily say that this book is entirely from the Christ consciousness.

Did Jesus incarnate as a woman?

Question: Did Jesus incarnate as a woman?


Answer from the Ascended Master Jesus through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2020 Webinar – Increasing Your Christ Discernment.

Yes, I did on many occasions. These are of course not recorded in the scriptures. And in previous dispensations, we chose not to even talk about the fact that all of us have switched between male and female embodiments. We did this in order to avoid confusing people. Because we did not feel they were ready for that level of teaching. Today you are ready for a higher teaching.

If you take the book, My Lives with Lucifer, Satan, Hitler and Jesus, where I was in embodiment for two million years, you can see that it is simply not possible to be in embodiment that many times and always be in a male body. And there would be no point in this because you are in embodiment to learn. And you learn by being in both male and female bodies. But in general, we have chosen to present our male embodiments if we present ourselves as a male ascended master and our female embodiments if we present ourselves as a female ascended master. This, of course, is something that will change in the future. But so far, that is the line we have maintained.

Are the fallen beings aware of being the fallen ones?

Question: Are the fallen beings who are now in embodiment aware of being the fallen ones? What are they striving for? Or are they not aware of that?


Answer from the Ascended Master Jesus through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2020 Webinar – Increasing Your Christ Discernment.

Well, this is individual for each fallen being. There are very few fallen beings who are truly aware of what they are being used for by the fallen beings in the identity realm or mental realm. There are many fallen beings in embodiment who are simply unwitting tools for the fallen beings who are manipulating them. And there are some that are aware that they are being used as tools for beings in the emotional realm and they feel they get a certain empowerment by these emotional beings. You will, for example, see some rock musicians who felt that they were being possessed by some other being during a concert and who therefore, were empowered by these beings to do things or sing in a way that they normally could not do. And this, of course, gave them the energy.

But generally, there are very few people in embodiment—fallen beings in embodiment who are aware of the teachings we have given you about fallen beings. There are some who are simply as we have said, intent on destruction. But there are also a majority of the fallen beings in embodiment who believe that they are doing something good for humanity.

You will see if you look back at power leaders throughout history, they have managed to make themselves believe that it was necessary for society that they were ruling society and that they were a privileged elite because the peasants themselves could not run a country and so forth and so on. Most of them are really unwitting tools for the fallen beings, especially in the mental and identity realm.

You will see many fallen beings who are in the scientific field, in universities, in research facilities, and who are simply taken over by fallen beings in the mental realm. And you have seen the same with philosophers and writers who are being used to promote certain ideas. Karl Marx was literally possessed by a being in the mental realm who was using him to bring forth the teachings on communism. And he was not aware of this.

What determines how long a fallen being can stay in embodiment?

Question: I wonder how fallen beings can stay in embodiment if they do not receive energy from God and do not have a divine plan, how their karmic period for being in embodiment is measured. And at the expense of what do they exist in that period?


 Answer from the Ascended Master Jesus through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2020 Webinar – Increasing Your Christ Discernment.

They stay in embodiment, because they steal energy from people who are still receiving it from their I AM Presences. And they do this as we have explained several times, through a variety of schemes where they manage to manipulate people into giving them their energy.

Again, I have talked about Hitler, who managed to get people to participate in these mass rallies where they gave him energy directly, but also by their attitude towards him, they gave him their energy. Stalin stayed in embodiment because many people feared him and therefore gave him energy. But there were even people who admired Stalin because they did not know the extent of the executions that he performed. Some fallen beings can stay in embodiment because people fear them, others because people admire them. And in any case, people are giving them the energy they need to stay in embodiment.

What determines how long they can stay in embodiment? Well, in some cases, the fallen beings themselves go into a self-destructive spiral that takes them out of embodiment—breaks down their physical body. In other cases, it is that the people who admire or fear them, change their attitude. They either overcome the fear, they overcome the admiration, they see through the illusions. And when they no longer give them their energy, then the fallen beings cannot stay in the physical body—they cannot maintain the physical body.

How long can Putin stay in embodiment?

Question: I am from Russia, looking at what condition Putin is in, I sometimes think that he may blow himself up from the tension. As far as I can understand he is making every effort to counteract the growth of consciousness in Russia. Given that his natural lifespan has already expired, how long can he live and function in that state?


Answer from the Ascended Master Jesus through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2020 Webinar – Increasing Your Christ Discernment.

Well, my beloved, it is really a question that depends on what happens in the collective consciousness of the Russian people. Because as we have said, it is the Russian people that are keeping him artificially in embodiment, because they are not yet ready for a different type of leadership. Otherwise, he simply could not remain as the leader, if there was the necessary shift in the collective consciousness. It is quite correct that he is doing everything that he can to prevent this shift in consciousness. And he is of course being a tool for some very dark beings who are seeking to manipulate Russia through him.

It is also correct that for the fallen beings who go into a position like that, when they are in embodiment, there will be enormous tension associated with it. That is why you will see in many cases, that people get more and more tense, more and more agitated. You see, for example, in the life of Stalin, how he became more and more paranoid to the point of basically suspecting everyone around him of wanting to betray him and take his power. You see a similar thing happening to Putin in the sense that he is also becoming more and more tense, more and more agitated. And it is partly related to the fact that he is resisting the growth in the collective consciousness, but also partly related to the fact that he has a certain self-image.

Putin is not necessarily one of the most negative or high ranking fallen beings on the planet. But he actually has a certain sense of wanting to do something good. At least in his outer mind, he believes that he was the right person at the right time for Russia, and that Russia could not have made progress without him. So he has in his mind this image of being, to use the Christian vocabulary, the “savior” of Russia. But at the same time, as we have said before, when you are a dictator who has virtually unlimited power in your country, and you still cannot solve the problems in that country, it becomes more difficult for you to maintain that self-image. And so, this is part of his stress.

Now, how long can he stay in embodiment? Well, it depends again on the Russian people, when a critical mass make that decision that they want something different. It is sometimes possible, that a country can be almost in suspended animation, almost in a state where nothing really can move in a certain area of that society, because the people are afraid of the change. Many people in Russia are afraid of what changes would come if Putin was not there. What would then happen? Would there be a power fight among some of these oligarchs? Would there be another dictator worse than Putin? Or would Russia deteriorate into a nation where there are so many factions that no one can make a decision.

You can see this in certain nations where for a time, sometimes decades, they can be stuck in this immobile state. You can look, for example, to the United Kingdom, where the Queen has now been kept artificially alive by the English people for quite some time, because they do not want Charles to be the king. A large portion of the British people do not want Charles to become the king, for various reasons. They are concerned, what will happen to the monarchy if Charles becomes King, and they are concerned what will happen to England if it is no longer a monarchy.

You can see how a country can have this resistance to change in a certain area that keeps the country stuck in a certain position, where they cannot move forward in certain ways. The United Kingdom cannot, for example, question the current system with the power elite, because they cannot question the monarchy. And the same thing in Russia, if you cannot question Putin, you cannot question the oligarchs that are set in position by Putin and held in position by Putin.

How to be more conscious of the subconscious levels of the mind

Question: It is not always obvious to me at the level of my conscious awareness what happens in the depths of my being whether my spiritual works lead me to liberation or the other way around to further separation. So I do not quite understand why there is no more direct way to dive into our four lower bodies and be aware of hidden things that are happening there. From the level of my conscious mind, I would like to ask a question: Why the cleansing of our four lower bodies and healing of our psychology cannot be done in a more conscious and less hidden way for our minds.


Answer from the Ascended Master Mother Mary  through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2020 Webinar – Increasing Your Christ Discernment.

Well, part of the answer is that you are living on a very difficult planet. And it requires a certain amount of your attention to just function in your daily life. So that is why in order to be able to function in your normal life, you are working on your psychology at the same time as you are fulfilling daily responsibilities. But some of the work that is going on in your psyche is below the level of conscious awareness.

Now, it will vary from person to person. Some people will be more aware of what  is going on in the subconscious levels of their minds than others. It is not necessarily that one is better than the other, there are simply different ways. But I would say that with all the tools we have given you, especially from the book, Healing Your Spiritual Traumas and the other books in the series, it is indeed possible for you to become much more conscious of what is happening at the subconscious levels. And you can certainly come to a point where you have a certain part of your attention, that is always focused on your four lower bodies, always on seeing new things—you need to work on seeing new illusions. And therefore, you can become much more aware of what is going on at the subconscious levels.

On the other hand, you could say that it is not necessary to be aware of everything that is happening at the subconscious levels. And the reason for this is that you have had so many lifetimes on earth. Now you will see that there are some people who will claim that they have had revealed to them all of their prior lifetimes. But this is in most cases, not correct. There are very, very few people on this planet who have had revealed to them all of their prior lifetimes. Because if you consider that many people have been here for 2 million years, you can see how many lifetimes that could be. And it would simply be overwhelming to your conscious mind to deal with that many lifetimes. Likewise, you can see that in many of those lifetimes, you may have made decisions, you may have created certain separate selves, you may have certain reactionary patterns set up. And it is not necessary for you to be consciously aware of each and every one of these. It is enough that you reach a certain awareness of a certain self and a certain decision behind that self. You resolve the self, and then you do not need to be aware of all of the other selves that are very close to it, that are very similar to it that are simply created in different lifetimes. They can all be dissolved once the archetypical self is dissolved.

Fulfilling the requirements of the spiritual practice 

Question: The masters have recommended  doing decrees and invocations for at least nine days when going through the initiations under each Chohan. Do these have to be done consecutively to be effective, with a family and working full time, some days I’m  unable to devote any time to my spiritual practice, to lose energetic momentum, do I have to start all over if I break my streak.


Answer from the Ascended Master Jesus through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2020 Webinar – Increasing Your Christ Discernment.

It is clear that if you can, it is better to do them consecutively. In other words, do them, however many days you’re going to do them, do it each day. However, you also have to be practical and you have to do what you can do in your practical situation. For example, you might not be able to do a decree nine times each day, then do it three times, or do it three times in the morning, three times in the afternoon, three times in the evening, whatever you can do. If you skip a day, you don’t have to start all over.

But on the other hand, you want to do it as many times as you have decided to do it. So that you simply go a day extra in the end, instead of doing one time less. So again, there is always an ideal situation. And then there’s the practical reality to face, especially when you have work and children and so forth. And so you have to adapt to that, not come down on yourself, not blame yourself, and not give up on it because you can not fulfill the requirements to the letter. If you can’t do everything to the letter, then still do it with the most positive spirit you can do it and it will still count for much. There is a letter of the law and the spirit of the law and we are certainly asking you to step up to grasp the spirit of the law.

Power elite families 

Question: Why are the power elite people allowed to embody in the power elite families?


 Answer from the Ascended Master Jesus through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2020 Webinar – Increasing your Christ Discernment.

Well, in most cases, because they have karma with each other and it is the only way they can have a chance of working this out. There are many people who create such karmic spirals in families and it is not of course only power elite families, that they simply cannot pull themselves away from it in the coming lifetime, so they keep embodying again and again.

The reason for this, is that there is a certain lesson these people need to learn and they need to learn that lesson and if they weren’t embodied with these particular people, they would just be embodied with some other people that hadn’t passed the initiation either, so they would repeat the pattern, so in many cases, they simply are attracted to each other. And they create actually, subconsciously, a desire to embody again with these persons, because they put all this energy into this matrix, they have something they have not finished, something they want to do, some kind of revenge they want to get,  or whatever it may be.

The situation in Belarus after the presidential election

Question 1: Can the Masters comment on the situation in Belarus where the people have been peacefully protesting for months after the rigged election? We need to see how the incumbent President clinging by all means to his position of leadership. What could be the next step they can take?

Question 2: I live in Belarus and I asked you to comment on the situation on this country after the presidential election. Shortly before the election, you said that the Belarusian people were not ready for a more democratic form of government and that it would be better for them that Lukashenko would remain President. The overwhelming majority of people voted against him, but after trying to falsify the result of the vote, he continues to hold power with the help of law enforcement agencies and power structures. The protest movement has been going on for more than three months exclusively through peaceful means. How do the Ascended Masters see what is happening in Belarus and what is the current prospect of a change of authority in the country?


Answer from the Ascended Master Saint Germain through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2020 Webinar – Increasing Your Christ Discernment. 

Well, my beloved, the peaceful protests and the fact that they have remained peaceful despite these attempts to create violence by certain dark forces is part of the process whereby the people of Belarus are increasing, or raising the collective consciousness, and therefore they are becoming more and more ready for a democratic form of government. 

Now, we can look at this from a certain perspective and say, if the protests continue and continue to be peaceful, then this will lead to a gradual raising, as it has already done of the collective consciousness. If it continues to a certain tipping point, it may be that the President will feel that he has to withdraw and give rise to a more democratic form of government. And so this may be that there can be a different government installed, or there can be a new election, or whatever the President decides. But you have to recognize here that the sitting President will attempt to influence this process, even if he gives concessions. 

You also have to realize, as I said in my previous answer, that you have Putin in Russia, and he has very specific interests in Belarus, and this is not going to go away by there being a change in government and a supposedly more democratic form of government. Putin will attempt to influence that government in overt and covert means.

And the question really is well, whether the collective consciousness in Belarus is ready to deal with this, are people ready to implement a fully modern western style democracy and thereby break with Russia if they have to. And then deal with whatever fallout there will be from such a decision. So, you see the delicate position of Belarus. Is it even possible right now to implement a western style so called modern democracy in Belarus? That is an open question. Again, I would say right now, it isn’t. But of course, if the collective consciousness continues to change, then that may also change within the not-too-distant future. 

But the situation right now is very difficult to predict. Because there are so many uncertainty factors here. So what can the people do, they can continue to do what they are doing, demonstrate, talk amongst themselves, raise their consciousness. If you are an ascended master student who feel strongly about this of course, give the appropriate invocations and decrees for the situation. But I must tell you again that it is a change in the collective consciousness that will lead to a change in the country. And that is a gradual process, and it will take time before Belarus is ready and the Belarusian people are ready to implement a more modern form of democracy.
