Question: When Mother Mary appeared in the Knock in Ireland in the 19th century I want to know what the reason was that she appeared in that place, at that time, to those particular people and what is the value now for these sort of apparition sites for ascended master students.
Answer from the Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels. This answer was given at a conference in Holland in 2017.
As an ascended master student there is relatively little value in these apparitions. They were not brought about for people at your level of consciousness. They were brought about for people at a much lower level of consciousness who still need to see some physical manifestation in order to shift their consciousness.
Now, you will see that this is something that will be happening more and more rarely as we move further into the modern or the golden age, simply because the collective consciousness is raised. I can tell you, my beloved, that there have been a few genuine apparitions but there have been some apparitions that are not genuine that are simply produced by people’s consciousness of wanting something like what they have seen before.
Truly, when an apparition happens – genuine or not – it only has a value if it shifts people’s consciousness. It certainly has very little value if people then make a shrine on the place and keep performing pilgrimages to the place, thinking that this will bring about some kind of miracle or some kind of change. It can have value for people who are at that level of consciousness, but truly it does not shift their consciousness very much.
There was a conference in Lourdes a number of years ago where we talked a little bit about this issue and, truly, for all of the people who come to Lourdes, very, very few have a genuine shift in consciousness. Although there are few miracles or healings, again there are so few, and these could have been brought about in other ways by the raising of consciousness. Truly, they have little value for ascended master students. It is not something I am intent on producing very often if at all, in the coming decades.
