Question: I have a question about the dictation of the Presence of Love from yesterday. And we have heard about the process of raising the Conscious You more and more into unity with the I AM Presence. And it seemed to me like the whole process could be described without ever referring to the Christ consciousness. So I would like to ask if you could give some clarification about where the Christ consciousness comes in into the picture?
Answer from the Ascended Master Jesus through Kim Michaels. This answer was given at a conference in Holland in 2017.
The Conscious You is a concept. The I AM Presence is a concept. The Christ consciousness is a concept. The fallen consciousness is a concept. Planet earth is a concept. The universe is a concept. You see, my beloved, it is perfectly true and it is a good observation that you can describe the process without using the terminology of the Christ consciousness.
In previous ages it has been described very differently. Even in this age, it is valid to describe it differently through other systems. It truly is a process whereby you come to realize that you are not a product of earth, you are not a product of your physical body, you are not a product of your four lower bodies. There is an element of your consciousness that is independent of anything in the material world. You come to realize that the reason this element of your consciousness is independent of the material world is that it did not come from the material world. It came from a higher realm, and it came from that higher realm because there is a being there that sent you into this world. Then, you free yourself from the identification with this world and you come to identify yourself with and as that higher being that sent you.
The value of going through the journey is that because you went through the immersion phase of seeing yourself as being separated from your higher self, even forgetting this higher part of your being, fully identifying yourself with the material universe, and then awakening from it there is now a higher awareness in your total being of who you are, how the world works, what the greater purpose of life is. This is how your I AM Presence, as was said so beautifully yesterday, has a completely different experience of the process than the Conscious You has or that you have, and therefore this leads to growth.
Yes, there are certainly other ways to explain it. You can, of course, tie the Christ consciousness into it by saying that as the Conscious You, or as you (whatever you want to call it) stops identifying with the things of this world and starts connecting to the higher part of its being, that is the essence of the Christ consciousness. It is where you realize as I expressed 2,000 years ago: “I can of my own self do nothing.” Because I’m not a separate being and it is only through the flow of energy from the higher part of my being that I am able to even exist. I also came to the statement: “It is the Father within me who is doing the works,” meaning the I AM Presence.” Also: “I and my Father are One.” I and my higher Self are One, and as long as you are in physical embodiment that is all you can say.
You can say: “There is an I here in this realm that is one with something up there.” You can say: “I and my Father.” You can say,: “My Conscious You and my I AM Presence are One.” But only when you ascend do you overcome the, shall we call it, a dualism, a duality, a division where you have something that sees itself as separate and only then do you actually go through the process where the Conscious You reaches its final state.
We have attempted to explain this in different ways that are all valid, we have attempted to put words on it but, truly, as was also said yesterday, you cannot put words on these things. You are ascending from a linear sphere to a non-linear sphere and the process of what you experience after you exit the linear sphere cannot be reduced to the words of the linear sphere.
