John Armitage & Germain:

Germain and I are going to tell you a bit about ego. The first thing we need to understand is that our true self is not the ego. The ego is an insane being who may have convinced us that we, our true selves, are it. It is not true.

The insane ego is a being or entity who tells us that it is the true us. This being tells us we are victims and are at the mercy of all things. It tells us, “Think through the left brain, this is the place that shows us the truth.” I can tell you, this is not true, although you may be convinced by this entity that it is true.

The only way we can see truth is through our hearts, in love. This means we don’t judge, we don’t process about the perceived threats to our being. The real truth is that there are no threats except the ones perceived by this insane entity the ego. For all is love. Live through the heart, and you will see this in action. Who needs to judge? Nobody but the insane ego.

This being who has convinced you that you are it lives in total fear.  WHY? Easy one this, because it is in fear of being found out. It will keep you running around in circles, “I need to be right, I need to control all aspects of life, I need to be me, the presence in 3D, me, the one who has needs.”

Believe us in truth, no one has needs beyond Divine love. This is all we need. Remember the Biblical saying, “ an eye for an eye”? If we go on like this, it means the whole world becomes blind. Let’s give the world our love, just that, seeing the perfection of the Divine in all. Please let God hug you, feel the Source through your heart, and LIVE in this Divine love and allowance.

If you are not happy with anything, just change it in this love. What else to do, fight? Well, the insane ego may try to convince you this is the way, but the only worthwhile fight is the fight with the destructive self. Even then, LOVE will save you lifetimes in this process, for fight and struggle are also an illusion. Remember who you are, and be that.

Photo: Seedpod of the Lotus. This flower has long symbolized in the East the rising of the soul from the mud of physical existence. The essence opens all chakras and nadis and temporarily aligns all chakras, meridians, subtle bodies, which allows expulsion of toxins from the body It especially affects crown chakra. Use with meditation and creative visualization. Helps in developing psychic powers; also helps in distinguishing the voice of the soul from other internal voices (such as the ego).

Recently I made a comment to a friend, “Love is the ultimate healer.” She said, “Don’t make absolute statements. That’s not my experience. Love isn’t always healing.” At first I was surprised, but then I realized that she was talking about romantic love. I was talking about Love without conditions. The first CAN and sometimes does help to open a person’s heart to experience the latter, but not necessarily.

The word love has come to mean romantic love in our society, and this kind of love is most often very conditional: “I’ll give so much love to you if you give so much back to me. If you don’t love me back, I feel rejected and worthless at my core, and I may take this out on you—and the rest of the world!”

This is the opposite of healing Love. Love without conditions says, “I love you just as you are, without judgment, and you don’t have to give me anything back. You don’t even have to know or like me.” It holds a mirror up to the other person, saying, “Look how beautiful you are! This is how I see you! This is who you are!” Love without conditions is not an emotion, it is a state of being. In this state of being all healing happens, for imbalances, whether in physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual bodies, are ULTIMATELY the result of not loving our Self, of feeling less than, unworthy, bad, unlovable.

In my experience (especially with doing Soul Wisdom energy clearings), pretty much everyone on earth who is not an avatar in disguise (and possibly some of them as well) has these feelings buried deep in the psyche. Some spiritual teachers say that this comes from the first separation from Creator/Source/God-Goddess-All-That-Is. When Source sent out sparks of Itself which became us, we became aware of being individual, which felt separate from Oneness. We are never separate, but it could feel like this, and some further interpreted it as rejection.

Those beings who would control us, in order to feed off of our fear energy, built on this small uncertainty within our subconscious in many ways. One of the most potent was through religion. Most of the world’s religions have a core of Love—Love without conditions. However this core has been subsumed under layers of man-made dictums, influenced by the aforesaid beings, telling us that we are sinners, we are not enough, we are dirt, we need to be “saved” or we will go to a fiery hell, or a freezing hell, or whatever. Some even tell us that there is nothing we can do to change our fate—only a few will be “saved” through the grace of the God they describe, and anything we do cannot influence this. It is foreordained. This is a lot to handle, especially when you are fed it at a very young and impressionable age.

These beings also denigrated the feminine wherever possible. This split humanity. We all contain both feminine and masculine energies within, in varying proportions. Both must be in balance within us in order for us to understand who and what we truly are—divine beings of Light having a human experience, learning to hold spirit within the physical at a high vibrational rate. This is called ascension. These beings do not want us to ascend; they fear the loss of their sustenance—feeding off the fear and other non-Love emotions of human beings.

Our bodies are like poems, speaking to us in metaphors about where we need to put our attention in our lives. Each night we dream—what a riot of colorful metaphor we create, each of us, no matter how “mundane” we may think our lives! Each of us has a wonderful creative spark that is irrepressible, and if we don’t pay attention to it in our “waking” hours, it will burst forth on its own during our “sleep”.

Our nature is a creative nature. Who will not stop, even if for just a second, to notice a beautiful sunset? Mother Earth creating beauty and love around us, all the time, and then for a few moments turning on the stage lights, as if to say, “SEE! See how beautiful is this world I’ve made for you! See how much I love you!” The way to live is to live each moment in utter wonderment and delight at its beauty. We are the poem, and we the poet, moving into life lived from joy. What’s the difference between a good poem and a bad one? Honesty. Technique can make a good poem better, more aesthetic to the listener, perhaps better understood. But only honesty can make a poem good, and satisfying. Only self-honesty can do this for a life.

Some of the best poems are those that “capture a moment” and then spend verses, stanzas, paragraphs to take you into that moment, so that you can feel it in all its wonder. One moment, lived from total joy and ecstasy of beingness. And yet we live hundreds, thousands of such moments each day. What a wonder a lifetime is! What a wonder the dawn of a new day—the ecstasy of a single breath. The stuff of poets—and mystics—and ordinary people.

So how does all this relate to health, and dis-ease? Imagery is the way that our Higher Selves talk to us, to tell us what needs attention in our life, how our spirit needs to be fed. Our bodies are the poem the imagery is played out upon. For example, when the imbalance is small, perhaps just a memory of some past hurt or traumatic experience, our mental body may play the poem. We may dream our own creative vision of this hurt or trauma, and how to heal it. If this is ignored by the conscious mind, then our creative Self plays a louder tune, a more strident song, using our emotional body. We may start to re-experience, to feel again, the feelings that occasioned the original imbalance. If we stuff these away, due to fear, or because we have no time for such things, then our body becomes the medium of last resort. Pain wakes us up. At last our soul has our attention! We must change—or suffer, sometimes even die.

Obviously it would be less traumatic, to pay attention sooner. This is where vibrational medicine can help. Flower essences can treat contractions, or blockages, of the life-force energy flow, when they are still in our subtle bodies (the spiritual, mental, emotional), before they manifest into physical disease. Singing, toning, sounding, color, aroma, and other vibrational remedies can vibrationally rebalance our system. For we are vibration. All of creation is vibration.

Most disease originates as thought (electro-magnetic in origin) which, if not brought back into balance, moves down vibrationally into emotion. Then, if this energy is not released, it continues to move down in frequency until it affects the functioning of the physical body. Our thoughts and emotions, to a very great extent, determine the state of our health. Treating physical symptoms with chemical substances can only affect such problems in the physical. Drugs leave the original cause untreated. We can achieve some physical comfort from pharmaceuticals (often with unintended side effects), but only we ourselves can initiate true healing, by changing our attitudes. In this effort, the vibrational or energetic methods and remedies can prove very useful. This includes homeopathic, flower and gem remedies, acupuncture and -pressure, hands on energy sessions (such as New Paradigm MDT with the energies of Shamballa, and other modalities), etc.

When we release fear and all of its manifestations—such as anger, despair, anxiety, hatred—we start on the road to wellness, to balance and mastery. (Living in Freedom & Love Without Conditions, p. 27)

We also bring tendencies to various imbalances or diseases over from other lifetimes, if we have not sufficiently resolved those traumas in our psyches. For instance, I have felt intense pain in a certain part of my back, on and off, throughout this lifetime. Psychically sighted friends have “seen” various spear points, knives, bullets, etc. in this spot. As one is removed another eventually comes up to take its place. The original injury was traumatic enough that I did not resolve it; I transferred my feelings of victimization, betrayal etc. to other lifetimes, thus creating energy that drew to me similar incidents, which piled up like layers of an onion, and now need to be peeled back, layer by layer.

I have found this to be true with many others while doing Soul Wisdom™ karmic clearings. Someone who is having digestive problems may have been disemboweled in another lifetime. Another who feels worthless has been indoctrinated with that idea during a painful death. Another who has come down with an inexplicable rash has been burned at the stake, and the unresolved pain is just now coming up for clearing. We all have such traumas stored in our subconscious from this and other lifetimes, and this is all coming up for clearing NOW. Modern medicine finds such manifestations baffling. They don’t fit into its doctrines of 3D medicine, chemical cause and effect, and everything treatable by pharmaceuticals.

YOU are the only one who can heal yourself. Others can give you energy, can suggest ways of releasing old pain and trauma, can even prescribe pain-killers to postpone the ultimate encounter with your personal demons. But only YOU can decide to release your pain, victimization, anger, fear & terror, hatred, etc. Let it go and be free. I have a mantra that I repeat when I encounter such emotions in myself, or such physical manifestations of the unresolved past. I share it with you now: “I own this, I forgive this, I release this, I let this go. I AM FREE!”

Disease is in essence the result of conflict between Soul and Mind. It is only a symptom of the cause. Dr. Edward Bach

Western medicine doctors and researchers, for the most part, deal only with this physical vehicle of five recognized senses: sight, smell, taste, touch and hearing. The very term “scientific method” requires that something be measurable within the third dimension and these recognized senses, in order to be acknowledged as legitimate. Of course, some physicists have discovered that the results of all experiments are affected by the observer, and that there are at least 11 dimensions [actually 12 available to humans at this time], but this knowledge has yet to convince the majority of people in today’s science fields to reconsider their current conception of “the scientific method” and its possible inadequacies and limitations. [Living in Freedom and Love, p.22]

Those of us who work with higher dimensional energies understand how extremely limiting such belief systems are, because we have experienced multidimensional energy and how it can help us regain and maintain balance in our bodies. We also know that our physical body is much more extensive than what we can see with 3D vision. We have an etheric body, an emotional body, a mental body, and a series of spiritual bodies that extend way out beyond our skin. Anyone paying attention can feel energy radiating from an angry person, or someone in despair, anxiety, or joy for instance. We have energy fields that interact with each other and affect each other.

Of course, anyone paying attention back in 1492 could see that the horizon curved around and things disappeared after a distance, which meant that the world was round; but not that many people were paying attention, because it went against their belief systems. Humans are funny that way.

In fact, our beliefs have a great affect on our physical health. We don’t make the world flat by believing that it is, or make the sun revolve around the earth because we want it that way, but we can affect our own bodies by our beliefs. Thoughts are energy. Remember? We are energy. Thoughts are energy. So our thoughts can and do affect us—not only our conscious thoughts, but especially those patterns of thought and behavior stored in our subconscious.

As Bruce H. Lipton, PhD and renowned cell biologist says, in The Biology of Belief:

We are not powerless biochemical machines. … Our beliefs control our bodies, our minds, and thus our lives.


While proper use of consciousness can bring health to an ailing body, inappropriate unconscious control of emotions can easily make a healthy body diseased.

And O.T. Bonnett, M.D. in his book, How Healing Happens:

Within the constricted focus of its belief system, the medical profession has made great strides. However, the allopaths’ mechanistic approach to the body and its ailments is, I’m certain, doomed to grind to a halt. The reason for this is that the principles behind its narrow focus are basically wrong. …Physicians must become involved with life—with the whole living person.

This is not to denigrate the truly marvelous advances in medical science, but only to put them in perspective by fitting them into the larger picture of who and what we really are. For the scientists among you, and for anyone else wanting to understand the complex and beautiful beings that we truly are, I highly recommend Dr. Lipton’s and Dr. Bonnett’s books!


John Armitage & the Upstairs Dept:

We hope that what we’ve shared with you, the Upstairs Department, and what I’ve personally shared with you in the last half hour or so, will assist you in integrating the fact that it’s necessary to allow, allow, allow, allow, and not to question, question, question, question. This illustration that I just gave of our sister’s, it works if you allow; you’ve just got to give notification—and you’ve not got to block it.

I could share from my own experience too, that it’s not always the easiest thing in the world for your ego to stay on the case and be focused. Sometimes we get a bit sidetracked and a bit forgetful. Watch out for this forgetfulness. It seems to me from my own experience that it’s easy to fall into this forgetfulness. It’s not a question of constant neurotic self examination. That isn’t going to take you anywhere either, except expanded neurosis instead of expanded consciousness. I must remember that one, it’s a good one.

Ultimately we don’t know where all this is going. The results are going to be distinct energetic changes on the planet, which will give us the opportunity for further understanding of the nature of our true selves. But also to break down the constructs—as I said before when I spoke a bit about illusory reality, or about the “matrix”, if that’s what you want to call it. That’s the trendy name, that’s the disease of the period. We’re stuck in the matrix!

But by bringing in these expanded energies and preparing ourselves to be able to process them, this is going to break things down, break things down, break things down. Also as well, you have to expect your lives to change. This doesn’t mean total destruction of your lives or whatever. But you can’t live in the old way anymore. OK, you can live within your society, you can live within your relationships, you can live within the tasks that you may have chosen to interact with society, the way you make a living and so on. It doesn’t mean to say that you have to destroy all that. But the way you relate to it will change.

From our hearts—of course we don’t have hearts, the Upstairs Department, but you understand what we mean—we encourage you to pay attention, but don’t struggle. Use this affirmation, “I’m here, I’m ready, I’m open. Bring it on!” And sure enough, it’s here.

I don’t know whether anybody else feels this, or if it’s just for me personally, but as soon as I say, “OK, I’m open, I’m ready, bring it on!” I feel this distinct download coming into my system, into my body.  I’m just wondering if it’s general or if it’s just that I’ve made the affirmation.

So let’s do an experiment. This is all experimental, so let’s do another experiment. Let’s all repeat out loud, “I am ready and I am open to receive. I am ready and I am open to receive. I am ready and I am open to receive.”

This is really interesting, isn’t it. I’m slightly flabbergasted by it, the influx of the energy here. Sai Baba is saying to me, “Do you need any more proof of keeping it all simple?”

To really experience this energy, go to:   Feel the Cosmic Heart energy beamed to you from a group of people who have experienced 5 days of the Cosmic Heart workshop. Just sit and allow the energy to flow into and through your being. It takes about 7 minutes.  Enjoy!

John Armitage/Hari Das Baba & the Upstairs Dept:

Our minds are very limited anyway. We can expand our minds in some ways, so we can sometimes understand a broader concept of things. But this part of us that we call mind isn’t multi-cosmic. It can’t understand even the concept of multi-cosmic. It can’t understand the manifestation of multi-cosmic things. It can only understand reference points that it has in 3D, through 3D experiences.

So we’re always encouraging you, don’t get technical with all this. Some things are explicable in a technical manner, this is true, but once we start moving into the realms of cosmic and multi-cosmic consciousness, there’s nothing to say about it from the standpoint of mind. It becomes an affair of the heart, not of the mind. And the heart doesn’t work like the mind. It doesn’t have the same way of processing things. It doesn’t need reference points. Actually, the heart knows everything.

This is why we’ve often said to you in the past that there is nothing new in Creation, there’s only things we haven’t experienced before. Everything exists within us. Just remember, if our spark of consciousness, the Divine Self, or even this spark of Cosmic Consciousness that is behind the Divine Self or Monad, is a piece of the Cosmic aspect of the Source of this aspect of creation, well, we’re everything, aren’t we. There’s nothing new to see. There’s only a new mode of allowance into, and to move out of these self-constructed limitations.

One of the voices of the Masters on the Mahatma track says, the essence of it, “We’ll bring freedom from the fetters of your consciousness.” This is all self-constructed. Of course, there has been a great deal of assistance in this construction, so we won’t lay it all on each individual. We also have the collective consciousness, as well, which is stored away in the Christ Consciousness grid. And we’re all hooked to the collective consciousness. So even if we don’t get completely brainwashed through the education system and our families and religion, we’re still hooked to the collective consciousness. So we’re being fed these constructs, in a subconscious way, and it comes into our consciousness.

This is why it’s really, really important, and we’re always asking you to pay attention to what you’re feeding into the collective consciousness. This is why Gandhi used to say, “Be the change you want to see.” As you change, it feeds into the collective consciousness. This gives every other being who is hooked into the collective consciousness the opportunity to receive the information and download it. The information isn’t in concise sentences or anything like this. It’s energetic imprints, which various aspects of the Self translate into knowing, or whatever, or even translate it into unknowing—but it affects us. So this is why we’re always saying to you, “Please take care, please take care, and please take care.” What’s happening to humanity now—I’m sure you’ve heard of this phrase the “Hundredth Monkey Syndrome”. Let’s go beyond the Hundredth Monkey label for this. This explains how things work with the interactions of collective consciousness with ourselves, and what we feed into the collective consciousness.

There’s nothing really complicated about all this. It’s all very simple. We could go into weeks and weeks of discussion about how this manifests into our consciousness and so on, but we don’t need to know all that. All we need to know is that it does. The technicalities about it are not important. We all just need to know that it does.
