TOPICS: Jesus does not create appearances – raising of consciousness – mind looks for patterns – people see order behind randomness – people project a mental image upon everything – also more open to genuine spiritual insight –
Question: This may sound like a silly question, but it’s been perplexing us for a while. Is your face appearing on tortillas/pancakes etc. just a coincidence or is it a wake up call to get our act together or something?
Answer from ascended master Jesus through Kim Michaels:
There are no silly questions, and this one is in fact quite interesting. The short answer is that I am not creating apparitions of my face in food items or other random appearances. What is actually happening here is a combination of two factors.
One factor is that the consciousness of humankind is being raised, and as a result people are acquiring a greater spiritual awareness. This means that many people are subconsciously more alert concerning spiritual ideas and spiritual images than they were even a few years ago. This makes them more susceptible to seeing spiritual images in unusual places.
The other factor is that a part of the human mind, namely what is normally called the right brain and which is also seen as the center of intuition, is designed to look for patterns even in seemingly random appearances. As a result of the rising spiritual awareness, people are becoming more intuitive, and therefore they are becoming better at seeing an underlying order beneath seemingly chaotic surface appearances. People are becoming better at seeing the forest instead of focusing their attention on the individual trees, as the left brain and the analytical faculties make them prone to do.
When you combine these two factors, it is inevitable that people will begin to see spiritual images in random appearances, from food to clouds. In other words, the increase in sightings of my face does not mean that I am actually appearing in these various places. It simply means that people are more susceptible to seeing an image of what they think the face of Christ looks like. When you think about this, you will realize that people don’t actually know what I looked like 2,000 years ago. So how can they really know that it is my face appearing on a pancake? The answer is that they have accepted a mental image of what they think I looked like, and they now subconsciously look for that image.
I am aware that a skeptic – if a skeptic was ever to look at this website – would use these teachings to ridicule the many people who see my face in various places. Yet the reality of the situation is that people’s consciousness is being raised, and this is a genuine phenomenon. One side effect is that it makes people more prone to see images where there is no actual apparition. However, the positive effect is that it also makes it easier for them to recognize genuine spiritual ideas, to recognize truth, than ever before. This then is a positive trend that will create an accelerated growth in humankind’s spiritual awareness.
Of course, this should not be construed as a denial of the fact that there are genuine apparitions. Yet such apparitions are normally spiritual visions that do not make use of physical things, such as food or clouds. Yet they can make use of a statue or religious focus, such as the statues of Mother Mary that shed tears.
