The Astral

Within the Astral are many different levels of existence. When we remember that the heart chakra is attached to both the upper and lower chakras, exploration of the astral becomes one of a spiritual as well as physical nature. All things being interconnected and part of a whole, whatever people believe to be truth, is created and dwells within the astral plane. The astral body and astral consciousness experientially travel throughout the astral plane continually. In the physical plane, we, our planet and solar system are all within the astral plane. The astral is a repository of the energies of the Cosmos on their way downwards and it is a receptacle of whatever passes out of the physical sphere on its way upward. Exploring the astral plane is like going to a library that is filled with an immense variety of categories and experiences. Each person’s book of life as well as all the stories of creation is cataloged within the astral library. All information and learning in the astral is transmitted and received through a process of osmosis. In this manner, we actually absorb information though our inner awareness and understanding. In metaphysics, the astral library is often referred to as the Akashic Records. To understand fully the volumes of information we have access to here; we need to become spiritually integrated. The five outer senses are of little use when exploring the astral plane and Akashic records; opening and developing the inner senses is primary. One of the levels of experience within the astral plane is referred to by some as hell, or purgatory. This dimension is where the so-called demons reside. Every thought and emotion humankind experiences produce energy. Through our fears and vivid imaginations, we create energies that often produce entities. These thought forms dwell within the astral plane and are seen as demons. Not all demons are bad. Many religions refer to Angels and other beings of light as being demons as well. Yet energies that are created from ignorance and fear are dark energies and feed off the negative emotions of man. Needing negative emotion to survive they often attack humans in their sleeping and waking state producing fear and hatred so as to feed. Hence came the lore of vampires. Seemingly, human beings cannot make themselves do what is good unless they have the threat of evil to overcome. This martyr program has been taught as a religious dogma helping humans acquiesce to it as being their nature. The power of evil is great only because of the power we give it. Energy creates, and beliefs are very potent energies. When people believe in fear, pain, chaos, and deprivation, these projected energies take on a form and life of their own. The dwelling place of these vampire energies is known as the lower astral. These are our energies; therefore, they become our demons. When we die, these entities remain in the lower astral awaiting our return to earth. When we reincarnate, these energies are restored to us because we are their creators and only we have the power to un-create them. We must see for our self what we have initially created, before we can create anew. Because all things are created from energy, all things can be brought back to a pure energy state. Reacting in fear or ignorance when confronted with these creations blocks our spiritual progression. By continual denial of the existence of these blocks humans remain stagnate and remain stuck in dysfunction. When we open our hearts to transmute our creations, “our demons”, they disappear. This only happens by us bringing them a pure energy state of love. Love is the eternal fire of life that burns within every heart. Love is the greatest healer that we have.

THE HIGHER ASTRAL

Heavenly worlds of color and geometry also dwell in the astral plane, awaiting exploration. Using astral consciousness, one can see and experience Angels and Teachers of Light. These beings use this plane of consciousness, to make themselves visible to us. Using our astral consciousness, we can visit other universes, galaxies, and beautiful temples of love. The astral plane was created for us to have direct accessibility to our companions in spirit. These beings are known as spirit guides. These guides and teachers of love are part of our spiritual family. They are always with us in spirit helping us understand the spiritual nature of our earthly journey. When people first begin consciously journeying within the astral plane, they tend to doubt the reality of their experiences, suggesting to themselves that its all imagination. They find it inconceivable that such a glorious and magical life can exist in the midst of our chaotic everyday existence. It is the outer world senses and learned responses that are at first difficult to override. It takes time and training to experience and accept the different realities that exist, especially when they exist within you. Our perceptions can only change when we open and allow it to happen. When we take the time to explore the astral realm, we can discover a limitless multitude of spirit awareness and personal understanding.

Solitude

Solitude

Today I focus on solitude and its many attributes.

If you don’t work on you who will do it for you?

Being alone and being with oneself is the perfect way to get to know you. If you don’t like the way you are thinking about things and self then it is time to work to re-program your thinking mind. I find the best way to begin doing this is with affirmations. For instance you are always beating yourself up in your own mind. Stop yourself and reflect on where and when you began doing this. Forgive yourself for allowing the entrenchment of such thoughts in your mind. Recognize at what age and stage you began doing this and forgive any others involved for letting them influence your thinking and realize that you have the power to re-program your thoughts and feelings around this thing. Now say:

I take back my power in my life to think and feel how I choose.

I am worthy to be free of negative thoughts.

I am successful and happy in life.

Using these three sentences over and over again, feel yourself replacing the old thinking with the new.

Realize you deserve to feel free and happy; do something immediately that makes you feel good about yourself.

This is simply one of the many affirmations you can use. I have many more in my book “Getting to the Heart” A journey of soul transformation and Spiritual Enlightenment. Available at all book stores for merely $10 dollars. I have an array of Guided Meditational CD’s at CD baby.com to download and use as well; all good and powerful stuff.

Blessings, Athene Raefiel

Mother Earth

I don’t know what is going on with Mother Earth’s energies right now; but I know it is time for concern. More massive things will be hitting very soon and we must be aware. I also know that the energies are hitting people hard in their lives. I understand the massive amount of turmoil this is bringing about and I pray for all the displaced souls at this time. I have recently been spending as much as three hour daily in prayer and meditation as my senses are very strong right now.

This is always how I start my prayers:

I am that I am

I am that I am

I am that I am

Iam Earth, I am Air, I am fire and I am water

I am that I am, I am that I am, I am that I am.

I call forth all my teachers and guides of light, I call forth the Universal light, I call forth my soul and spirit self

I pray for the guardians and keepers of light to come forward and assist the children of Earth and her species. I pray for Mother Earth herself to find peace and harmony within.

I pray for awareness of mankind to be lifted to the understanding of the need for peace and love. I ask for divine intervention to help bring this about.

Then I begin my prayers for specific individuals.

I end in gratitude with I am that I am, I am that I am I am that I am, and some OM’s. blessed be the holy light of Life within.

Moon Landings

Have you noticed every month that the full moons seem to be getting harder to go through? They are particularly hard on the mentally ill, poor and people of addiction. It is so hard to help these people because even they do not know what they are experiencing.

People of sensitivity such as myself are feeling more and more hypersensitive energy and the great sadness of the worlds many people. People without enough food or shelter are crying out for some compassion and understanding.

People don’t just leave their homes and travel thousands of miles to find new homes and safety unless they feel completely destitute and helpless to find help or hope. I blame much of this on the Governing bodies of the world. On a global scale it seems that we could all be helping one another, yet without the continuation of diplomacy I do not see how this will ever happen. Of course no country wants to be overrun or overwhelmed by refugees, yet it is a global problem that needs to be addressed as such.

I am watching the elections in the country and am dismayed to discover the amount of voter suppression that is now and has been going on. Call me naive but I thought we lived in a Country of freedoms and laws, but in the past several years I have leaned of all the corruption playing out within our own Government. I am not a party player but I truly am disgusted by leaders so separated as to have helped draw such divisions as we now face as a nation.

It makes me feel like foreigner in my homeland.

Radical Shifts

I feel the radical shifts currently happening and it brings shivers to my body. Society as we know it no longer seems to align with hope and goodness. To much fear and anger pervade the masses. This cannot be good. I speak with the Angels on a regular basis so I am asking them to speak now on how we can survive this negative surge and still find hope.

Raphael please help.

The world is at a phase and stage of development brought about by the need for transition and transformation. What you are feeling is a symptom of the sickness that has developed through the wrong use of will and shall continue until the many change their minds about following the laws of God, Goddess All that is. It simply makes sense that there are better and different ways of handling Global Warfare and many countries and their governing bodies simply do not care.

The need for wealth and riches has and is sabotaging the world and its peoples. The more people that are in need of even basic services such as food and shelter are letting their souls die and have quit believing in much of anything including sanity. It is indeed an hour of darkness for earth so long as mankind continues to create and sell weaponry as well as kill one another. This is not what creation is about.

The more soulless beings of earth become the more they are simply the walking dead. We have no power over mankind’s free will is was a gift from the creators to mankind. We had hoped this gift would be appreciated and used for its highest purpose, but we did not expect people to use it to control and hurt others. We are not beings of expectations and perhaps we should have been but being of unconditional love we always see the hope and best in everything. Our message to you is do not lose your soul, this is the only vehicle you have to return to your home of origin.

Just as you pray so too do we for you. Know you are blessed and continue to do the work of soul to help mankind.

Mother Earth

I don’t know what is going on with Mother Earth’s energies right now; but I know it is time for concern. More massive things will be hitting very soon and we must be aware. I also know that the energies are hitting people hard in their lives. I understand the massive amount of turmoil this is bringing about and I pray for all the displaced souls at this time.

I am that I am, I am that I am, I am that I am.

I call forth all my teachers and guides of light, I call forth the Universal light, I call forth my soul and spirit self

I pray for the guardians and keepers of light to come forward and assist the children of Earth and her species. I pray for Mother Earth herself to find peace and harmony within.

Divine Intervention

Divine Intervention

A discussion between Athene Raefiel and Sanat Kumara

Athene:  Dear Universe what is Divine Intervention and how does it work?

Sanat Kumara: For the human race as well as other beings of form, Divine intervention is an idea or a concept, something that can only be understood through the experience of it. This is to say the Divine must be experienced to understand what it is as well as how intervention may play into life.

You are beings of thought and therefore must conceive of something to make it real. Divinity is only realized by human beings through their own individual conception and can exist only when realized or experienced. In fact the Divine plays no rule in intervening in your lower four dimensional lives unless it is expressly asked to do so, and this is how prayer came about. Prayer is the form of asking the Divine to hear your questions and answer them.

Athene: How do we know when a prayer is answered?

Sanat Kumara: All prayers are answered simply because of the energy put forth by the prayer. The divine is always listening. Yet the expectations of how the Divine should respond often seems to delineate the response given. In order to understand what the Divine is saying or doing you must first understand your own Divinity and proceed with trust and love in your heart. When one has transcended the lower planes of survival they determine that all life is a miracle, as is its ups and downs. They themselves begin to realize that they are a miracle who creates miracles all of the time.

Athene: If I pray and ask for world peace and senseless dying to end, why can I not create this?

Sanat Kumara: But indeed you are creating this all of the time. Unfortunately you are a part of mass consciousness that has yet to reach this simple reality. The animal instinct in humans is strong and they still believe in eat or be eaten. The paradox of the Divine is too confusing for them to take seriously unless it too has animal instinct. Pure love and understanding, kindness and compassion are too often viewed as weaknesses’ and therefore easily discarded in the face of adversity. For one to transcend the human consciousness and identify their divinity is often too time consuming and just too much work. Since what one believes is their reality, to believe differently than before is simply too strenuous.

Athene: there a various groups of pious people around the world that use constant prayer and meditation everyday as a way of life. I have discovered large numbers of them, they live their lives in trust and prayer, living as simple and self-sustaining life they can. Still wars rage and people starve and live destitute.

Sanat Kumara: Yes it is a quandary indeed. How can so many understand the Light and so many more not? Form is a part of creation that is based on light and dark. One cannot exist without the other, though one is simply a shadow of the other, still there is a force within human beings that causes them to battle this reality within themselves and all other life. People see these two as opposites rather that the two sides of the same coin. Yet one cannot exist without the other, for the light dwells within the darkness just as the darkness dwells within the light. Neither is good nor evil; only human conception sees one or the other.

The reason Divinity is so mysterious to human mind is due to judgement, or lack thereof, in so many. Each soul has the awareness needed to blend these seemingly two forces into the true balance within all life, but once again it requires soul recognition and study to find such peace.

Athene: But human consciousness is not taught to search for and discover soul awareness, why? Was there a heavenly fall from grace that predisposed our creators to devise ourselves to be this way?

Sanat Kumara: You indeed were created in the image of Divinity yet too many souls chose to forget their own eternal selves and tried to create a world in which they themselves would be kings and queens, rulers of others by any means possible. This is a human expression of what they thought God or the Divine to be.

The Afterlife

Ever wonder what happens after you leave this world and enter the next? Wonder no more; Archangel Raphael has offered some important information for the future of your being.

When someone dies there is a process to which they must adhere before entering into a state of blissful consciousness and peace. This process involves the Soul and the Astral Self.

When hearing someone speak of seeing the soul leave another’s’ body, what they are actually seeing is the Astral body of that individual. Few make the distinction between the astral and soul, as few really seek to enlighten themselves to these teachings. Death often referred to as a great Mystery of the Universe, yet there is no greater mystery than life itself. I say this as Death is part of life and so life part of death, or the great transitions within soul.

When leaving the physical world due to dying, you immediately enter the Astral body. This vehicle of time and travel is extensive and whether you choose to be aware of it or not and has been actively participating throughout your lifetime. The astral is a vast plane of reality and consciousness that is always connected to and part of your soul.

The astral plane is not now nor ever has been separate from the physical for it indeed is a transmission plane through which all out of body experiences are lived and experienced before moving beyond.

Often meditation and an altered state of consciousness allow the individual to enter and explore the many dimensions of the astral plane. In this awesome plane of existence beings and teachers of light such as the Angels and Spirit guides can be met with and utilized within your own individual consciousness.

Crimes against Humanity

Hello friends,

My opinion is here stated about the crimes against humanity perpetrated by the US of America.

The new Tax Bill that makes the rich richer and poor poorer;

Any law allowing immigrant children to be separated from their parents;

Any law arresting or punishing people for being homeless and poor;

Any blind eye to the fact that there are at least 55,000 people homeless in the USA;

Not providing adequate Social Service to those in need.

Throwing out paper towels to the Puerto Rican people who had Hurricane devastation;

Finding no common ground for the good of the many;

Not providing adequate health insurance for everyone, equating to who lives and who dies.

Making enemies of other countries just because we can;

Not separating church and state.

Allowing guns on the streets;

Teaching prejudice,

I take pride in my being but feel much shame for the US.

My solution; throw out the Government and start over.

Compassion is apparently a learned response, all need to learn it.

Blessings, Athene

Staying Centered

I am working hard to stay centered in this massive wave of energy exchange. People are getting lost and out of body much of the time. chakra alignments are invaluable right now, to keep yourself aligned and in body.

I am my root chakra

I am my sacral chakra

I am my solar plexus

I am my heart chakra

I am my throat chakra

I am my brow chakra

I am my crown chakra

Feel yourself sinking into your chakras and surround yourself with light. Breathe the light in several times.
