10 Surprising Ways You Can Work with Focus & Avoid Distraction

Think about a time at work you are most proud of. A difficult project successfully delivered, or a paper that received a good grade, or a difficult conversation that went well. Each of those moments will have required your undivided attention.

When we wake up and get ready for the day, producing our best work is something we all aspire to. But, with distractions on the rise, and the limits of our attention seemingly reached, how do we make sure, more often than not, we do the best work we’re capable of and avoid the inevitable digital distraction?

To understand this, we first have to understand the impact attention switching has on us.

How Does Attention Switching Affect Us?

The immense amount of work on the impact of attention switching on human performance can be overwhelming. Sophie Leroy’s seminal work on the Attention Residue is one of the best and most accessible pieces on digital wellness and responsibility. Leroy claims “it is difficult for people to transition their attention away from an unfinished task and their subsequent task performance suffers”.

Gloria Mark also writes regularly about the impact of repeated interruptions, particularly email, on the quality of our work lives, and how a single interruption can take us up to 20 minutes to get back into the same level of focus we were in previously.

So what are some of the benefits of maintaining focus and attention in a digitised environment?

Benefits of a focused digital environment

When digital environments are created to actually serve what we, as human beings not just as employees, need to achieve, rather than compete for our limited attention, then the quality of your work increases, your negative stress levels decrease, and you become fully present to the task or the people around us. In short, with a focused digital environment, we give ourselves the space to become our best selves, both in the workplace and in our personal lives.

Here are 10 ways you can become more focused and less distracted:

  1. Mindful devices: By making our devices more mindful, we take more control over the way they behave, rather than being at the mercy of incessant notifications and other attempts to engage with our attention. Whether personally or professionally, being more mindful about way you like to use your devices (such as the selection of apps on our home page) will ultimately help design a digital life that serves you, and not the other way around.
  2. Know the impact of the platforms – understand digital platforms are designed to make you feel a certain way. There is a growing community of people who are creating great content on the way technologies impact the quality of our lives. Understanding how technologies are designed to manipulate how we feel helps you make different choices when it comes to creating your digital experiences. Understanding how the limitless scroll mimics slot machines, or the potential for social media to act as a social contagion helps you to intentionally design your digital world
  3. Manage notifications: Unwanted notifications are one of the biggest culprits of digital distraction. Learn to understand which notifications are the most important to you and silence the ones that aren’t. The potential for people working in jobs that require a high degree of concentration, to suffer from notification fatigue – where we think every single buzz or ‘ding’ is important, is on the rise and decreases our ability to make good choices.
  4. Establish digital boundaries: Establishing boundaries on our digital lives is essential in this hyperconnected age. Knowing when to put your professional self on the back burner and then connecting with friends is incredibly important. The alternative is the blurring of the office and home, of the professional and the personal.
  5. Use technology intentionally: The intentional use of technology is such a deceptively simple concept but has massive benefits. How often do you work while leaving other apps open in the background? How often do you check your email during work? Intentionally using technology means that we understand what we’re trying to do and the best tools that help us to do it. What tools help you to do your best work? What combinations don’t?
  6. Fullscreen: Going full screen is a fabulous way to restrict your peripheral vision when working and lessen the chances of you being distracted by other apps that want your attention
  7. Internet blockers: Internet blockers intentionally block your access to the online world and minimise distractions for those who need a serene period of time.
  8. Know your limits – understand the way you work and when you crash: David Kadavy spoke eloquently about the importance of understanding your patterns of work – when is your best time to do concentrated creative work, or work in groups? Learning your particular patterns will help you greatly to design your technology use around you and not the other way around.
  9. White noise: One of the single best tools to help get you in the ‘zone’, focus@will, has plenty of science-backed sounds that helps your brain to get into the right frame of mind for working
  10. Single use apps: Single use apps can be incredibly helpful for some people. For some people using apps with multiple functions distracts them from what they are actually trying to do. Calendar apps, Kindles, specific email apps, help you to really focus and write that great email, or to read without going down digital rabbit holes.

Honorable Mentions

  1. Trackers: Having devices that can reflect our data back to ourselves can be an incredibly useful way to give us greater insight into the different peaks and troughs of our performance during the day. How stressed were you today? How much did you move? While these trackers can be imperfect, they’re a useful barometer to understand our optimal times of the day to do certain tasks
  2. Breathing / meditation apps: meditation and similar stress reduction apps have been on the market for a while now and are becoming increasingly mature. Headspace, Calm.com, Whil.com and more are bringing the benefits of breathing practices and meditation to the masses and helping people become more focused and less distracted in the process.

So here are some ways to be more focused and less stressed. What are some ways you shape your digital environment to be less distracted and more focused?

The Law of One in France Archangel Metatron via Tyberonn

   Greetings Masters, I am Metatron, Angelic of Light with Tyberonn of Crystalline Service, and we greet you one and all! Dearhearts, we sense each of you as you read these words in your present moment.
 
We continue with the 3rd and final portion of this interesting channel on the Law of One in France.
 
As we mentioned briefly in part-one of this 3-part channel, ‘Soul-Groups’ tend to incarnate together, in patterned, repetitive cyclic mass. This is a most effective & reasoned practice, because existing relationships among the soul-group, both loving & karmic, are the logical & requisite format of growth and evolution.
 

   However, certain of the mass influxes occur with purpose, planning & an intent to bring about change for the better. This was indeed the reason for the influx of souls into Europe & France in the ‘Renaissance’ and Golden Era of France.

 

Dark Ages Into Societal Rebirth

   Keep in mind, in this era of history, the Renaissance, (the ‘Re-Birth’), occurred in an intense time in which Europe was emerging from the primitive & feudal ‘Dark Ages’.
Accordingly, the advanced souls of the specialized guild of the ‘Law of One’, were as a rule, required to incarnate into ‘families’ of influence, authority & power to cause change. This was the most effective route, in that specific demographic & timing, to bring about change. This required incarnating into ‘noble families, into the double edged sword of aristocracy, power & wealth.
   Indeed, lifetimes in aristocracy & wealth, are rife with temptations of: indulgence, opulent excess, over-control & arrogance. When viewed from ‘the other side of the veil’, sojourns with wealth are often far more risky & indeed, far more perilous, than lifetimes of less ‘material possession’… even for advanced souls. If a soul develops characteristics of arrogance, superiority, self-indulgences, over-control, et cetera, it can render, not only the sojourn as a loss, as a backslide, but can require many additional lifetimes to make the karmic adjustments & corrections.

Although Richelieu & Mazarin, came from the ‘gentry class’, they were educated in monasteries, and thus were disciplined, intellectually developed & comparatively far more principled and virtuous, in contrast to the majority of highly titled aristocrats, royals and upper echelon nobility of that time period in Europe.

Complex Preparation
So of course, great preparation went into the ‘Renaissance’ influx.
    All of you, during the ‘in-between 3-d lifetimes’ phases, carefully, closely review your actions, and deeply consider the gains , losses & errors made in the most recent duality-sojourn. This involves intricate planning, preparation for the next ‘testing’ in the University of Earth. Indeed, the planning phase involves mass telepathic communication with all the involved parties, even those ‘alive on earth, in 3d. In this way, the actual planning itself is every bit as essential as the goal planned, it is an intricate part of the mental experience and ‘spiritual’ soul-development.
This planning, is exponentially important when a Soul-Guild chooses a mass group influx with high-purpose, action plans, goals and roles. There are actually what may be termed as advisors & councils within the guild, which offer great assistance in this process. Most of these have completed the incarnational cycle, and offer this assistance to bring other groups into ‘graduation’ from the University of Duality.
All souls are part of a primary soul-family grouping, and the more advanced, oft choose to work in specialized guilds. This is done, interestingly, from both sides of the ‘veil’. Incarnate highly advanced members of the guild, do this in the dream state & subconsciously.
In important ‘missions’ all incarnate members of a soul-group are subconsciously aware of the intent and purpose….even though few, very few, may be truly consciously aware once incarnate in the intense polarity of 3d. Indeed, humans wear ‘blinders’ in physical biology. However, all will receive telepathic communications & dream state communication regarding their pre-planned purpose, even if their specific role is simply one of quiet support and ideal projection.

In the case of the Law of One in the Renaissance, literally hundreds of thousands were involved in organizing & fine tuning the intent, accepting the given challenge, and assigning the various sub-groups & members different parts to play. Then in physical existence the roles are met with the obstacles of duality, which must be overcome, in an oft resistant, difficult free-will realm.

The Cathars & the Intervention Process
Many of the Law of One had incarnated earlier into France as Gnostics, termed as the Cathars. They were brutally massacred by the early Inquisition, as a militant enforcing wing of the Roman Catholic Church. Many of these did indeed, return in the efforts of blocking the Inquisition and separating church and state…and indeed in the eras of the British Tudors and French Sun-King, this was achieved, in time.
Now, although intervention, or ‘Supernatural Intervention’, as termed by your Edgar Cayce, can & does occur. In the realm of ‘free-will’, it is truly & usually, only allowed at certain time line junctures….at critical ‘forks in time-line road’.

Perhaps a better analogy, is that on the river of linear-earth-time, certain sections go thru dangerous rapids. In these dangerous flows, specialized guilds do offer paddles & portage, thru the whirlpools & perils. But it is not ‘God’ per sei, which intervenes, it is the collective higher-mind, the divine aspect of humanity in gestalt. Such interventions are intended & only accomplished for the betterment of the human condition, and to more aptly enable the path leading to Ascension.

Bending Time
So keep in mind, that Earth experience is a purposed illusion. Nothing, including your ‘future & past’ are fixed. Everything is truly happening in now time in the Torus of space and time. So we tell you that space and time do not behave , do not exist in the solid format that you humans think they do, in your physical system’ Indeed, from your limited perception, time flows & space appears as fixed, as stationary, but in truth both are dynamic and flow thru one another. Meaning that both can be bent, in ways humanity do not yet grasp or command, but both, in truth, are mental constructs.
Presently mankind perceives material / physical existence only as it intrudes into three dimensions. Its actual, greater scope simultaneously occurs in many other dimensions. Indeed, other versions of time-space in what can be considered as probable realities juxtaposed as parallel versions of Omni-Earth.

   Soul Guilds, specialized advanced souls, therefore, can appear in, participate, or purposely & at times, temporarily intrude into the three dimensional system from other dimensions, even direct one probability into another dimensional reality. The life-force, the vital current of energy of a soul group, or a guild as a purposed unified spirit-family unit, moves thru the full unit by plan.
The Law of One in France
Primary Purpose:
1)     Stop the Inquisition (Belial) Forces garnering thru the Austrian Habsberg & Spanish Royal Courts, by consolidating France.
2)     Influence the separation of church and state.
It began with the highly improbable occurrence, (which was indeed an intervention), of the destruction of the Spanish Armada in 1588.

It completed with the final defeat of the Habsberg/Spanish forces by France thru the consolidation of power engineered by Richelieu, and the completion of the destruction of thru Mazarin & Louis IV. But keep in mind, there were a vast number of ‘Guild-Members’ performing roles, duties and task, in a massive psychic collaboration to accomplish this task. This had been essentially accomplished by the middle of Louis 14th remarkable 72 year reign.

Both Richelieu & Mazarin were highly involved in the difficult task of consolidating power and separating church from state. Consolidation of power to the King of France, was absolutely required to remove the feudal Aristocracy. This resulted in vast hatred of these two courageous men. For these two, Richelieu & Mazarin faced the brunt of the anger and resistance. It was difficult, but they received help from thousands, overtly and subconsciously.
Both faced death constant threats, assassination plots and sinister undermining court schemes designed to portray them as traitors, seeking to have them beheaded, as disloyal to the king. Yet both were supported and remained empowered.
Both were poisoned on several occasions, but quite miraculously survived. Both played a price for the honorable & difficult achievements, which they accomplished against great odds, with the support of the guild.

. Interestingly, both men , Richelieu & Mazarin, died, transitioned during their 2nd Saturn Return, which is quite significant, though unrecognized as the mark of a guild mission leader, planning life-guild missions with the intelligent use of astronomical gravity patterns. .

Reincarnational Records
J Tyberonn – Editor Insert:  There are quite a few references to the French phases of Louis 13th thru 15thgiven to people requesting readings from Cayce. Many are directly and closely associated to the ‘Royals’, and 1st Minister ‘Cardinals’ (Richelieu & Mazarin).
Louis 14th, Louis 15th and Louis 16th all reincarnated, (according to the Cayce readings), into America in the early 20th century. Interestingly, 2 of the 3 had life readings, but the reincarnated soul who had been Louis 14th, had a health reading (very different from a life-reading). The ‘health’ reading given by Edgar Cayce in 1933, was therefore focused on specified physical issues, according to the request, and very few details were added regarding past lives, other than the mentioning that he had been Louis 14th. The 2 life readings went into greater detail regarding past-lives’, losses & gains and personality characteristics, advantages & faults.
   In EC Reading 2508-1, (Louis IV Soul) The Edgar Cayce channel stated that the man had been the ‘Sun-King’ of France, Louis 14th, and stated, quote: ‘much could be said of latent abilities’. The readings do not publish the actual names of the person having the readings, however this information is noted and kept in the Cayce Archives at the ARE HQ in Virginia Beach. The reincarnated Louis 14th was a car salesman, having a working class life!

Note herein, the transferal from wealth & aristocracy, into a materially more difficult life, but one in which untoward aspects of arrogance, superiority and control of others are not ‘supported’ by life circumstance.

Louis 15 & 16
According to their life readings, Louis the 15th, reincarnated as a middle class, working class man, and suffered from extreme seizures, which the Cayce readings advised were a karmic result of sexual excess & opulent indulgences.

Louis the 16th, reincarnated into the Americas in the 20th century, and was a quiet, but respected physician. The reading stated that his 20th century (current) wife, was the reincarnated Marie Antoinette. The reading also stated that Louis 16th, although a caring soul, was quite indecisive as a leader, to a fault… and that had he heeded the warnings of his advisors, and acted promptly, he, his queen & children could have escaped beheading by taking refuge in Austria. Alas, he waited too long.

The Egypt Connection
   Louis 14th, according to the Metatronic readings, had been a Pharaoh in the 18th Dynasty, and many members of his ‘French Royal Court ‘, were present in Egypt in his reign. It is interesting to note that the Pharaohs’ of that phase of Egypt considered themselves to be descendants of the Sun God, Amun-Ra, and of course, Louis 14th called himself the ‘Sun King’.
Amenhotep III, was also a prolific ‘builder’ of Temples, had many wives, and reigned some 40 years in a ‘Golden Age’ phase of Egypt’s 18th dynasty. His son, Amenhotep IV, (aka Akhenaten), was absolutely of the ‘Law of One’.
As is clear from the reincarnational ‘threads’, you can see that lives of ‘power & authority’, are oft followed by sojourns in ‘common’ or working class scenarios.
Individuals upon earth, whether they are kings, queens, peasants, celebrities or criminals, all cross over into the after-life, equally & individually. When entities complete each duality earth experience, they are transitioned & accepted into the spirit realm with absolute parity. For in higher self you realize earthen duality lessoning, while demanding, & sensually quite real, is a purposed illusion…a curriculum of learning.

What is known by few outside of the A.R.E., is that Edgar Cayce incarnated, according to the readings, as a ‘hidden’ grandson of Louis 14th. His father was the future King of England, James   V. He died in childhood, before age 7, it was a short, karmic life.

Closing :
Without the achievement of what occurred in the reigns of Louis 13th and 14th, the Belial Forces, the dark energy, which infiltrated the Church of Rome, would have conquered all of Europe, and established a feudal systemic aristocracy in the ‘New World’. For this was a critical juncture in time. North America would have been colonized in the ‘chopped’ method, which occurred in the conquest and colonization of South America.
Imagine, if you will, if South America were one united country. Imagine, if North America was divided into a dozen smaller countries. There would be a much different world, than the one you presently live in, especially in Europe and the Americas. Europe, in the 17th, 18th & 19thcenturies, would have been controlled by the Habsberg/Spanish hierarchy. In the 20th Century, both Europe & Britain would have fallen to the Nazi 3rd Reich control, as the United States would not exist.
It was a fascinating era, and played key role in the advancement of humanity in ways that are not oft considered, nor truly understood, for there is indeed a ‘hologramic’ insert aspect to your reality in University of Earth.
Yet it is all an illusion, a highly purposed illusion. A magnificent future is before you.
 Do not doubt it, for goodness, is the destiny of humanity, the only outcome ! For Love,  the complexity and divinity of LOVE, is the greater force.
I am Metatron, with Tyberonn of Crystalline Service, and we share with you these truths. You are beloved!
And So It Is…And It Is So…

YOU ARE IN THE MIDST OF A SPIRITUAL REVOLUTION

MESSAGES FROM ARCHANGEL MICHAEL   

TRANSMITTED THROUGH RONNA / SACRED SCRIBE

 

Beloved masters, for a moment, imagine that you are fully aware of your origins and that you can tap into your personal cosmic history files any time you wish. Imagine that you have the ability to communicate with those around you without words, mind to mind. Imagine that you have the natural ability to see everyone’s auric field, and therefore, you can read or understand a person’s „state of Being“ at any given moment. Imagine that you can envision clearly that which you wish to manifest, and it takes only a little time and effort for your visions to become reality. Imagine that you have the ability to communicate and interact with the archangels and the vast angelic realm, as well as the ascended masters and the great Beings of Light. All of these attributes and abilities are a part of your natural state of Being in the higher realms, and you are now in the process of regaining these God-given talents, as well as the ability to assist in the evolutionary process of humanity and the Earth.

We have explained many times and in many ways how you separated your Divine Self into a masculine Spark of Essence with the characteristics and qualities of our Father God, and a feminine Spark of Essence with the virtues and attributes of our Mother God. Since that first separation, each Facet of your Self has refracted into a multitude of smaller Sparks of Divinity, and you have assumed a myriad of forms and innumerable missions throughout this universal experience. The next grand stage of universal expansion and the evolution of all sentient Beings are well under way, and each of you has an integral part to play as a StarSeed and a bearer of Divine Light.

The ascension process requires a letting go of those things that have kept you in the stifling, restrictive reality of the Third and Fourth Dimensions. It entails returning to balance and harmony in all facets of your earthly Being, which will result in your memory banks being cleared of all the discordant energies/events of your rich and varied past. All that will remain is the wonder, joy and successful endeavors you have attained as a cocreator in the material realms. As you traverse the path of ascension, you are reclaiming the wisdom stored within your Sacred Mind, and you have tapped into the rich storehouse of Creator Light called Adamantine Particles. You are beginning to demonstrate and use many latent abilities that have been kept in reserve until you were ready to reclaim them.

You were designed to be a transmitter of Light in a world of illusion and shadows. You are on Earth to become a master conveyer of energy. Your breath is the mechanism by which you draw forth the Primal Life Force Substance of Creation while you are functioning in a third- / fourth-dimensional environment. However, as you open and activate your Sacred Heart and Sacred Mind, you have the ability to gain access to the Full Spectrum Light of this universe, and also the Divine alchemical properties of the Violet Flame will be available to you in full measure.

The Law of the Circle insures that the vibrational patterns you send forth will be returned to you, along with an accumulated measure of similarly-qualified energy (or vibrations of the same frequency patterns). You are the center of an energy vortex that is made up of a circle/loop of vibrational patterns that you have projected from you via your Solar Power Center. Your solar plexus is aptly named; for just as the Earth receives cosmic energy from the Sun of your solar system, so do each of you radiate life force energy from your own Solar Power Center. For a moment, envision yourself as the central focus of your world. You are the power source and your thoughts, actions and intentions radiate forth from you in a loop of energy that connects with like energy. That energy magnifies and manifests in the world of cause and effect and then returns to you, reinforcing your picture of reality. Your body absorbs a portion of that energy, creating pain and suffering or joy and blessings, depending on the frequencies. The remainder flows out behind you, creating the other loop of your Infinity pattern, while the residual gradually flows into your personal wheel of creation. You are constantly adding to your personal prison of energy or your vehicle of Light and your personal reality on Earth.  Have we not told you that you came to Earth as cocreators with the God Force?

Returning to balance and harmony is a prerequisite to staying centered within the Sacred Heart. In order to do so, you must constantly evaluate and upgrade your awareness of Self. Your emotions are affected by your beliefs, and your intentions are affected by your emotions. Listening to the nudgings of your Soul, the wisdom of your Sacred Mind, and the emotions of your Sacred Heart will help you to fine-tune your discernment abilities so that you can make the right decisions and always choose the highest path. Reverence for all things and God-inspired choices lead to Self-mastery.

One of the most important things you can do to initiate the process of returning to balance and harmony within the reality you have created is to apply the Law of Forgiveness to all your miscreations and interactions with others. Doing so will immediately accelerate the process of returning to center, for it erases or breaks the energy cords you have attached to other people’s solar plexuses, and it will also shut off the radiations to and from any negative collective consciousness belief systems that you have taken as your own. You are taking back the vibrational patterns you have exchanged, added to or participated in, thereby allowing you to move into the state of grace process.  Be aware that as you do so, you will experience the transformational clearing process and all it entails; however, it will not be as traumatic or as drawn out as it would be if you had not willingly and whole-heartedly agreed to take the initiative.

The Law of Forgiveness includes aligning your will with the greater WILL of our Father /Mother God for the highest and best outcome for All. The Divine Plan for this universe is at a critical stage of the evolution process, and time is of the essence.  Becoming an active member of the Light Brigade and a newWorld Server will open a portal of new possibilities. Those of you who have diligently stayed the course will reap the rewards of Self-mastery and discipleship. As you move into the realm of Self-mastery, you automatically begin to view your life and the world from a higher vantage point and with much wiser insight. You begin to embrace your reality through a filter of Love/Light, and non-judgment and discernment become a natural part of your State of Being.

A good affirmation to remember and use is: I EMBRACE THE WHOLENESS OF MY DIVINE REALITY.  There is power in humility. There is power in forgiveness. There is power in gratitude. Love is the power which contains all the virtues and qualities of God Consciousness.

Many of you are aware that in the beginning stages of the initiation process there is a crisis as the battle for supremacy begins between the ego and the Soul. Each person must endeavor to clear his/her illusionary, distorted reality of the astral planes. The ego desire body is controlled by the energies and impulses of the three lower chakras, and these imbalanced inclinations must be brought under the control of the Soul-Self once more. This period is often called The Dark Night of the Soul or traversing the valley of shadows. When you are in the midst of the process, it is important that you understand you are not being punished. After you have successfully traversed the shadow lands and emerged triumphant, you will look back in retrospect, and you will realize that you were given a great opportunity.  A spiritual aspirant is a consciously aware human Being who is seeking en-Lighten-ment and Self-mastery. In the beginning stages, he/she is still somewhat “self-focused” – often prone to temper and irritability, and may experience bouts of self-doubt and depression. A spiritual aspirant should endeavor to develop sensitivity and a loving, understanding nature. The aspirant’s life purpose will gradually move away from personal ambition and love of power into a desire to be of service to humanity.  A desire to serve others is a Soul instinct.

An aspirant gradually begins to let go of the “It is all about me,” and the “I, me, my” concept, as the external focus slowly begins to fade. There is a gradual turning inward, and the major focal point becomes the Solar Power Center, which comprises the solar plexus, heart, thymus and throat.  As this area is bathed in the higher frequencies of Light, the Three-Fold Flame in the chest area begins to blaze forth once more in preparation for the opening of the portal to the Sacred Heart.

Allow us to give you a few more important key points to assist you in integrating the wisdom necessary to become a full-fledged spiritual aspirant on the path of en-Lighten-ment:

**  The Emotional Body is a reflector. It responds to external stimulation, such as other people,

events, emotional attachments and addictions.

** Tread the path of life gently and reverently. Speak softly with discernment. See that your actions reflect the purity of your God Self and leave footprints of Light for others to follow.

** There is an ebb and flow to the cycles of the Soul, just as there is throughout the Cosmos.

** The Soul draws forth the Essence of life from its I AM Presence in preparation for a new life cycle of experience.  At the end of that cycle, the life Essence is slowly withdrawn and the physical death process results; however, the real You in Spirit form remains, for you are immortal.

** The Soul’s impulses and influence are much stronger in a Being who has stepped onto the path of awareness than in an unawakened person who is still caught up in the illusion of a Third- / Fourth-Dimensional existence.

** You must strive to maintain an ever-expanding state of Soul-consciousness in order to progress on the upward spiral of ascension. It is time for those who will be among the new World Servers to become aware of each other.

** Criticism is a faculty of the ego and the lower mind. Criticizing or finding fault with yourself or others is detrimental to the extreme. You add energy to that which you focus your attention on; therefore, it is of the utmost importance that you look for the good in everyone and everything.

** Constructive criticism is sometimes necessary. However, it should only be used to assist someone to correct harmful behavior, take the right action, or find the appropriate direction.

** YOU CAN ONLY FAIL IF YOU QUIT TRYING. You may lose time; however, you should gain some knowledge with each failure. Growth and wisdom come from learning what not to do, and in perfecting the skills that will help you become proficient in your chosen field of endeavor.

** Lower vibrational energy creates discordant frequencies within your Soul Song. The vibrations of discord cause discomfort within the area where it originated or where it is focused within the physical vessel. If the negative energy patterns are strong enough, they can create disease and will eventually contaminate the entire body.

** You must tame and gain control of your emotional body via your Higher Self, guides and angelic helpers in order to become receptive to the refined frequencies of Cosmic truth. You must clear the mind of distorted, negative, defeating thoughts. Only a clear vessel can receive and transmit the wisdom teachings of the cosmic libraries of God-consciousness.

** A spiritual seeker refuses to pay attention to public opinion, judgment or failure. Aspirants are recognized by their vibrational frequencies or Light quotient, not by their knowledge or their deeds.

Remember, beloveds, THE CLARION CALL FROM YOUR SOUL SELF WILL CONTINUE TO ECHO UNTIL YOU HEED THE CALL Many of you have begun or are ready to begin your true mission, whatever that may be, but never forget that the ultimate goal is to be a conveyor of Creator Love/Light. We are aware that the future is uncertain and everyone is experiencing pain and discomfort in varying degrees. We ask you to focus on the miracles and progress you are making and not allow the fear of the masses to infect your mind as you move through and beyond all the massive changes that are taking place in your world. Know that, together, we will overcome all adversity. Our mission is to open the way for any dear Soul who expresses a desire to return to harmony and attunement with their God Self.

Dear ones, when you feel alone or are in doubt or despair, come into your Pyramid of Light and we will give you courage, uplift and inspire you. When you feel lonely or unloved, move into your heart center and we will be there, waiting to fill you with the radiant love of our Mother/Father God. I AM your constant companion.  I AM Archangel Michael.   ​​​​​​​
