Angel Michael's Secrets - Part Six

Updated on August 24, 2013

Heaven Leigh Intro

There are so many subjects. There are so many things to talk about. I can't help but speak of things that are on my heart, especially as I see them affecting other hearts and minds. These are the questions I ask of spirit. These are the answers I ask to flow through me. Some will agree. Others will not. That is how it should be. I am here to convince no one, only to be.

The most recent election in the United States brought out so much anger in many of my friends. Now that we have Facebook to vent all of this, I was amazed to hear of the many timelines decorated with hatred. Why?

The country recently experienced 8 years with a Republican President. Now the country is going to experience 8 years with a Democrat as President. It seems to be following the principle that most of our mothers taught. Taking turns. No problem, right?

But there is something much deeper going on. For years there has been a wave, a movement of "Republicans are more Christian, closer to God, and more in line with Godly principles."

Somebody needs to just say it.

Hatred is based on fear.

What are Christians, (and I consider myself one, in that I adore the loving principles of Jesus Christ) so very afraid of?

It seems the most prevalent topics are abortion and gay rights.

So if a President chooses to uphold laws that leave the decision of abortion up to the pregnant mother, and does not try to pass laws to dictate her moral or health choices, he is deemed as "unGodly" by many Christians?

If a President works for equality for all - and recognizes that "gay" is not something that people can tell another to be or not be, he is considered "dangerous" by many Christians? Why?

Angel Michael Speaks - TYM

Measure the words by your own heart. Heaven is here to guide by showing you that you must lead yourself. If you want to hear from me, tune into yourself.

Every channeling is heard through the filter of the "channeler." Hearts will resonate with spirits that harmonize with theirs. This doesn't need to be my voice to have authority. It is the voice inside of every heart. Some never hear it. Some are terrified of it. Some are miserable because they hear it, and choose to act contrary to it. This is the saddest of all.

You do not need the name of "Michael Jackson" to give you permission to listen to your own heart. That is what I am here to say. Listen to your own heart. Let the hatred, the lies you've been told, the archaic books that were written by men claiming to be channeling God's voice, all fall away like heavy dust-ridden clothing.

If you believe that channeling is all a bunch of "hooey," then why would you read anything that claims to be "the inspired word" of anyone - unless you have a profound trust in the writer or writers?

Listen to the depths of your heart that speak truth always, because this is the place that God, Goddess, or Source energy (whatever term you like) continually resides. Some will automatically quote a much quoted verse to themselves at this point - "...the heart is deceitful above all things, desperately wicked...who can understand it?"

Who actually wrote that? Why do you believe it? This one verse gives your heart, mind, and personal self-worth over to another. Another says, "Do not believe or trust yourself - believe ME." Just what is it about their heart that gives them the right to be telling you not to trust your heart?This is the verse upon which all religious abuse is based.

Someone tells you (with the authority of many men claiming to be channeling God) that you cannot trust your own heart's sense of God. According to them you must only trust an ancient book's sense of God. Who wrote the ancient book? Why do you trust that those men's hearts were not deceitful above all things?

How many, many, many writers interpret these ancient words for their own purposes of wielding their own power? Who were the scribes working for? What was their instruction? How were they to construct ideas to mold men's minds? Would you trust a man who today wrote "God's way" into a book and published it as such? Or would you wonder - what's his slant on it, what's his motivation, and how dare he speak for God? Was human nature so different in olden times?

So why are old books trusted over new books? Were not the men of old still men with their own motivations?

Historically, Religion and Politics have always been intertwined

People have been taught by these ancient books that God has a certain way of thinking. Some of the writings are passed down through generations and embedded deeply into minds and hearts as fear and hatred.

Is it possible to heal from this? Is it possible to examine why you think as you do? What if?

What if the words that have clawed their way into your heart, alongside the loving words of Jesus, are misrepresentations of God's heart? The scribes of old thought they were being of service, while unwittingly writing words that perpetuate hatred. It makes sense that political realms are forever entwined with religion, for much of what is in your ancient books was written to politically control people with religious mandates.

Why are ancient contradictory texts protected and revered as holy, while innocent people are killed and labeled as "evil?" Something is very upside down and backward in a society that would protect words over human life. Words are meant to protect human life.

Jesus is seen by many as the Word of God, because of the embodiment of LOVE and loving actions. Do his actions, as described in ancient books, not reflect perfect love? Should not all of the words be measured by a life, rather than lives be measured by words?

Words can be misleading. Loving actions define truth.

People will fight and claw and kill for their beliefs. It should not be so. If we make beliefs our god, if we give our minds over to be controlled by power-hungry men, we lose sight of God completely.

Is it working?

Hatred rages against the loving waves of Goddess. Confusion screams in God's face and says "I Hate YOU!"

If you believe in a higher power at all, who do you think made the different ways of being? Trying to change someone's way of being, rather than making the person "more Godly," may be defying the natural beauty that was put there by God.

And yet, instead of opening to learn - you often close and cling desperately to ancient ideas that were set in motion by men afraid of losing their political power. So they made rules, they told stories, they demanded attention.

God is much quieter than that. God just IS.

If your adherence to ways of hate and judgement and "destroy who is different" are working for you to create the loving world you so long for - why are you so angry? Where is this lovely world with only one right way of being?

It is not different ways of being that destroy the majority. Beloved traditions are not destroyed by allowing other traditions to be created. All are enhanced by acceptance and mutual respect. It is the majority's hatred for those who are different that brings internal destruction and outward ruin.

What shall be the best measure of an ancient book? How does one decide where the truth is? LOVE. Love must be the ultimate measuring stick.

There are many loving things in ancient books. They should all be read through the sifter of LOVE. L.earning O.ptimally V.isualizing E.ternity. Every book you read should be put through the "filter" of LOVE.

Where is this "sifter" - this "filter" of love? It is within the very beautiful and precious knowing that resides in your own heart.

You can learn a lot about love by reading of hatred and how it destroys. Learn from this. Hatred has never bettered a world, a nation, or an individual. Learn to listen to your own heart. Decide, through love, what is worthy, what is good, what is love.

Why let men who lived long ago put their prejudices, hatreds, or agendas into YOUR life? Why be loyal to writers that self-destructed by the very lines of hatred that you cling to as mandates from God? Why let others, archaic voices from long ago, dictate God's heart to you? Listen for yourself. Listen closely. Don't be afraid to tune in for yourself. God welcomes this.

You have been terrified by words of condemnation. Condemnation has been aimed at those who are here to teach you. You have been molded and shaped into the form of another man's invention. Break free of ancient forms that no longer serve you, that indeed have never served you.

Cling to love. When put through the sifter of love, only the nonsense will fall away. No more need to rid the world of certain ways of being in order to save the world from "God's wrath."

What if the whole "God's wrath" thing was an invention of men conniving to control others for their own gain?

What flower are you?

Beauty in Diversity

At some point in time, some in your world wished all to be the same hue of color, some still do. Instead of embracing the beauty of diversity, they want all to be as they are. How sad if the flowers of Earth felt this way. You would have nothing to look at but one flower, one color, one shape, one fragrance. How very sad. Why do we expect people to be less beautiful than flowers?

There seems to be great fear that God will destroy a nation where all are not the same way of feeling, being and loving each other. Marriage must only be "one right way" or God will destroy us as interpreted by the story of Sodom and Gomorrah? I don't think that story means what some think it means. Look Closer.

And what of a marriage to hatred?

Many fight against something with the goal of pleasing God. Many are terrified of things because they believe they are things that God hates.

How can I make this as clear as possible?

God is for love. If you want to please God and see blessings showered on your world, your nation and yourself, then celebrate LOVE, in its many God-inspired forms.

If it were only that simple. And yet, it truly is. Love is a decision to be made in a heartbeat of time. Love is a whisper of light in the darkness of hatred. Love is something each individual must come to when they are personally ready. Sometimes it does take a long time to learn. Learning is often impeded by fear.

Teachings of old are often difficult to see past. They still may hold much wisdom when seen through love. Let what is no longer useful fall away to reveal the new. Look for the light through the leaves. The new trees are tall. The forest looks scary to many. They climb and hide in the trees, or they fight the trees, or they burn the trees.

Listen to the trees. They are the forest.

What if you succeeded in making a world with only one way of being?

One way of looking. One way of thinking. One way. Who would be left to inhabit this world? Once you got rid of every single person who was different in this way...what about the people who are different in that way?

Ahhhhh! You are finally finished. Look around at what you have created with all of your destruction. The world is just the way you want it. Everyone is the same. Everyone thinks as you do on every subject. Everyone in your world looks exactly like you, acts exactly like you, loves exactly like you, smells exactly like you.

What is that smell?

It's you.

Just you.

Only you.

You.

U.

.




A love story through E.O.N.S.

      Heaven, when I was in Catholic school I exasperated the nuns with my questions regarding the Bible. One was, 'how do we know this to be the truth? Have you never played Whisper Down the Lane where the last person in line repeats the begininning sentence? Rarely did it ever come close to the original'. My second question surrounded the tongues of fire and many other incredible visions cited in the Bible. Opium was a way of life back in the days of Jesus' life. I don't deny Jesus or His message, however do question what has been 'seen' and transposed.

      We need to have our own beliefs and honor those that differ from ours. Intepretation is subjective. Be open and listen!

      I love the part, Beauty in Diversity. I've never even thought about it like that! Society and peer pressure try to make us think that being different isn't a good thing. We always see on the covers of magazines of models showing off their figure and making everyone wish that they were them. That's not how it should be. We need to embrace diversity.

      One thing that just popped into my mind about diversity is love. Love and diversity kinda go together in a way. In any kind of human relationship, we love another person because of the way they are individually. All of those unique qualities that they only have makes us fall in love with them.

      Being different is such a blessing. You're simply you. No one on this beautiful earth is exactly the same. Twins aren't even identical... hehehe xD

      Thank you again, Heaven! I LOVED this :) Many hearts!!! xoxoxo

      Thank you so much, Jasmine. I am very familiar with her writing, yes, again a testament to how we all have our filters, and very insightful to understand that most of us come back around to what is most comfortable. I wish her the very best in life and her career!

      I admit that life has stretched me greatly, and I have had to, many times, go way beyond what is comfortable in seeking truth.

      Thank you much for the blessings, and may God also richly bless you always. Much love to you and yours. :)

      Dear Heaven,

      Thank you for responding and for your thorough insight. We as human's accept into our lives what we feel is most comfortable for us when it comes to our beliefs. We find out later in life that what we believe has a lot more to it than we were told. Then we reconcile and intertwine the new knowledge with the old. But what we must be careful of is allowing liberal new age views to sway our beliefs. A site you may be interested in is out of body dot org. Marilynn Hughes (sorry but I can't put a link here.).

      May God Bless You and keep you close to Him.

      Thank you Jasmine for your insights and for taking the time to comment.

      In his physical lifetime Michael loved the teachings of Jesus, and with heartfelt commitment, tried to emulate Jesus in many ways. His generosity and love for fellow humans, is as legendary as his record sales, though the media certainly did not focus on this.

      On the subject of Jesus, Michael's spirit, as I experience him, leaves it open to individuals to choose their own path. I have read of those with Native American backgrounds channeling and seeing Michael in this familiar-to-them setting. There is always a "filter" that the channeling seems to come through. His spirit has helped to open my mind and heart to the benefits of many different ways of experiencing God. Maybe his own words before ascending can best explain Michael's spirituality:

      "It's strange that God doesn't mind expressing Himself/Herself in all religions of the world, while people still cling to the notion that their way is the only right way. Whatever you try to say about God, someone will take offense, even if you say that everyone's love of God is right for them.

      For me the form God takes is not the most important thing. What's most important is the essence. My songs and dances are outlines for Him to come in and fill. I hold out the form, She puts in the sweetness..." ~Michael Jackson, an excerpt from "God," a writing in his book "Dancing the Dream."

      You and I are probably not reading the same books (as far as those that might be classified as "New Age.") I somehow have drawn to me books that do include Jesus' teachings and are very respectful and grateful for this wise and loving mystical knowledge. I read works of Eckhart Tolle and Doreen Virtue among others that quote and highly respect the words of Jesus.

      You are obviously very well-read and a person who thinks deeply and responsibly. I appreciate your comments and questions very much.

      Thank you again, and stop by anytime! Many blessings and much gratitude to you!

      Thank you Heaven for your gracious comments. Not to sound biased (although I am a Christian), everything Jesus taught and knew he didn't have to learn. He knew what we are all just starting to discover with awakening our spiritual selves. Jesus knew instinctively what it's taken the rest of us all this time to discover. Jesus was a mystic. "The Kingdom of God is within you". The problem with New Age is that they leave His teachings out which is what He was trying to teach over 2000 years ago. Jesus didn't need a book, the internet, or even a lifetime to figure out what we are now discovering. He was born knowing what mystics today are still figuring out.

      Just wondering since you channel Michael, has he (in his afterlife) been with Jesus and does he look to Him as his Savior? I know he was a Jehovah Witness, but then I read where he became Muslim. I get the impression Michael was sort of up in the air about following either. What are Michael's views about Jesus?

      I do agree that politics and humans decided what went in the Bible. However so much has come to pass prophetically from the Bible that I believe there is much truth in it. But since humans wrote the Bible there will always be room for error. Plus 2000 years ago there wasn't mass communication or access to research. I look at the Bible as a foundation and open to interpretation. There are also 20 lost Gospels recently interpreted within the past decade. Interestingly enough, Mary Magdalene played a much higher role and Christ chose her as a disciple. There are also secret messages (I think given to Peter) about how we all have the power to connect with God.

      Thank you Jasmine, for your comment. I'm glad that things have worked out well for you in your experiences with organized religion.

      Because of my religious upbringing, I have had a lot of frustration with all religion. It is Michael's spirit that has taught me to understand the benefits of, as well as dangers of organized religion. I am not trying to change anyone.

      It seems you have sifted out the hatred that can exist in churches and have chosen to operate in love and kindness. It's wonderful when religion can be a positive part of that. I have come to be grateful for what my childhood church taught me, it helped to shape who I am today, and I choose to be grateful for the lessons.

      I believe that pain can confuse people and take them down a road of trying to ease or forget their pain in substance abuse or other ways of self-destruction. As a physical person, this was a struggle for Michael, as you astutely commented. I think that one would have to be in his shoes to understand the severity of the emotional pain. I have great empathy for what he went through in life, and I feel his experiences can teach others many important things. I believe that his deep spirituality enabled him to stay on Earth as long as he did, and to contribute as much as he did to this planet and its people.

      His spirit now, free from the pain, seems to have reached out to help many other hurting people. It may seem strange or silly to some, but as long as it is helpful, I will keep writing what I hear from this beautiful spirit.

      Thank you again for reading and commenting! Continued success and happiness to you! Keep shining!

      Oh my gosh, Heaven!!! BEAUTIFUL!!! In my opinion, this is so full of truth. After reading this, this just gives me so much more self confidence and it really opened my eyes to what's out there in the world.

      "You have been terrified by words of condemnation. Condemnation has been aimed at those who are here to teach you. You have been molded and shaped into the form of another man's invention. Break free of ancient forms that no longer serve you, that indeed have never served you." The world should raise their children to be who THEY want to be themselves. Let them be their own person! Guide them, don't force them or they'll want to go down another path. So true!!

      TYM and TYH for this... many hearts! xoxoxoxo

      However Dear Michael,

      Most religions either organized or non-denominational do not breed hatred. Most help keep people journeying through life with consciousness of right and wrong, and towards love for God and their fellow man. Each person has a right to decipher for themselves what may be man-written and what is God's will. And most intelligent people will do that. As a Catholic my youth was filled with constant learning of right from wrong,moral from immoral and a proper way to lead my life, which I in turn lead a very Christ conscious life. I am grateful for my upbringing and now have chosen to combine my Catholic faith with my own interpretations of Christ was really saying.

      Many I have known throughout my life with no religious upbringing found them selves lost, on drugs, and not making intelligent decisions. Our society has decayed because it's ventured away from the '"old ways" of family closeness, praying together, and TV alone has tried to make viewers think that what's on a show is normal or moral.

      So then what is wrong with organized religion? Michael seemed to never be ever to find his way spiritually or in his personal life.

      Dearest ALeisaStarr,

      I've been praying for you - I hope you have power now - or will very soon! My heart has been so focused on those suffering from the effects of the storms there. Sending much love and many prayers!

      I'm so happy this was encouraging to you, and amazed at your bravery. Many, many blessings to you and yours. Love, light and laughter (and more light!!!) I hope you have candles and flashlights too. :)

      AMEN!!!! I have always asked why I should live my life with boundries created by religion...I do believe in a higher power but no loving GOD is going to condemn someone because of who they love or the choices they have made in their lives...It is so sad that most religions teach these principals and even sadder when the people that attend the services consider themselves to be "Holier than Thou" on sunday and the rest of the week they are practicing hatred against another. I am thankful Heavenleigh to you for this forum and to Michael for reinforceing my thoughts...It should be about Love....Plain and simple yet sometimes the simplest thisng is the hardest to achieve.

      i have been away for awhile...The storm forced me to overcome my fear of darkness and made me slow down and focus on myself.. I hope everyone that was in the dark looked at the bigger picture and used that time to listen to that inner voice...For me it was a humbling experience.

      Allow me to say AMEN to all of this!!! I come from a very famous organized church where I thought there was focus on love, only to realize years later that it was all about following rules made by them, and praying against pretty much everything. I'm so glad I'm out of that.... I believe God's greatest gift to us is common sense... it's sad to see so many people give that common sense over to people who control it for their own gain. I'm glad you wrote this article, Heaven!! and thank you Michael for sharing your thoughts with the world!!
