A Bridge to Higher Consciousness

Don’t Work with the Angelic?

People often ask me why they should work with angels. I’ll usually reply, “Don’t work with angels, work with Great Archangels.” Please allow me to explain. While most of us believe angels are mystical and magical, it’s we humans who are actually the exotic ones. Angels predate us by countless years and outnumber us greatly since we are actually a latter day “experiment.” The Angelic realm is a parallel existence to the human—not higher or lower. However, individual souls in the Angelic, just like those in the physical, range in evolution from recently incepted, un-evolved saplings, to supremely high, barely individuated Great Archangels (which would be like our Saints, Gurus, Enlightened Ones, etc.). There are few Great Archangels (perhaps around a hundred) compared to the trillions of extant angels. A few Great Archangels, like Michael, Raphael, and Gabriel, are familiar to most of us; the rest may not be as well known, though they are still knowable (which is a subject for another day).

So, what’s the value of working with the Great Archangelic? To me, it’s more a question of if they are working with you—and they very likely are—does it benefit you to become a more conscious participant and co-creator?” In my experience, absolutely.

So, Why Work with the Great Archangelic?

Working with the Archangelic may assist you to awaken more from this dream of life into the reality of Spirit. The metaphysical often seems much closer to truth and certainly far more profound than the physical because we experience it more. If you are aware of their essence, Archangels may lift you into their consciousness and then up higher. They are a living, loving assist into the heart of God, a shortcut, a gift of Grace. Why would you not avail yourself of this kind of support? They are not a substitution for any other spiritual presence and they encourage you to keep going into the Lord in your awareness as you can.

The benefit for this world is that becoming more aware of the Great Archangelic may assist you to experience and manifest more of their positive qualities, such as spiritual attunement, loving, joy, inner knowing, surrender to God’s will, altitude…the list goes onward and upward. If you are manifesting more of those qualities, how could you not be more effective and successful in this world, as well as becoming more aware of the next?

I’ve facilitated dozens of classes and events wherein sharing with an individual about what Archangel was available to help them transform, heal, and lift made a visceral and transformative change in them. In these cases, simply identifying which Archangel was present and assisting folks to connect made all the difference. Do we need to be aware of the Archangelic presence for them to work with us? Not necessarily, but in my experience, being more conscious promotes exponential growth and change.

Could You Be an Angelic Immigrant?

The membrane that separates the two worlds (our world and the Angelic world) is highly permeable—we (and they) may go back and forth. We have all likely had at least one lifetime “field trip” in the Angelic realm, and many have probably spent many and even most of their existences there. Some of us are quite recent immigrants. Consciously visiting the Angelic world can help us complete unfinished karma and retrieve any streaming parts of us still wistfully casting our eyes to that place where our heftiest responsibility was to praise God whom we never forgot.

As humans, we can sometimes feel like a stranger in a strange land. Here, we have to pay bills, be on time (whatever the heck that contrivance is), set healthy boundaries (boundaries? They do not exist in the Angelic like they do here), deal with deceit and manipulation (ditto), and navigate many other obstacles that feel foreign to us. It would be like being suddenly plopped down in Iran and not knowing the culture and being expected to not offend anyone, let alone thrive. In my experience, when we become aware of just how different our world is from the Angelic, we are able to move into compassion for ourselves and self-forgiveness spills effortlessly as we give ourselves a break for being (seemingly) ineffective here.

I’m an Angel-Human?

In metaphysical circles, it’s widely accepted that we are multidimensional beings—that is that we exist not only on the physical level, but also on the astral (imagination), causal (emotional), mental, etheric (unconscious), soul, and ultimately, spirit level. I posit that most of us may also have an angelic body or presence and can thus experience the angelic level simply by shifting our awareness just as we can be aware of our imagination or even soul just by shifting our consciousness. Sometimes, accessing our angelic body can also take us into knowing the Spirit more.

For example, I was assisting a facilitator in a seminar and I inadvertently touched him to bring his attention to a logistic. As a result of my touch, he ceased being able to talk. His words sputtered out and he called for a break. Aghast, thinking I had ‘broken’ him, I followed him into another room. It turns out that my touching him had connected him into his Archangelic presence, which tapped him into a higher source of information. When he started speaking again after he had consciously allowed his own Angelic presence in, the difference in his energy was so palpable that the room felt electric and the depth of his knowledge felt vaster than it had been in all the years he had been lecturing. Before, he spoke from his human experience; after, he spoke from God’s experience. To me, it felt like we were being bathed in Divine love.

Pest Control

We are affected by negativity differently in the human consciousness than in the Angelic. But negativity that is nascent has its source in the angelic (e.g. Lucifer, fallen angels, demons) and may affect us in this world, too. It can be helpful to be cognizant of the Angelic so you can bypass temptation instead of being unconsciously affected by Lucifer and his cohorts. It’s easier to deal with the “enemy” when you understand them.

Shortcut to God Consciousness

We may sometimes relate more to God forms—Christ, Buddha, The Divine Mother, Allah, etc.—when we access them from the Angelic if we dwelled in the Angelic when we awoke to their presence. God is God, but until we awaken to the “Allness” of God, it benefits us to have specific awareness of God’s various positive presences. These manifestations of the Divine are still (very diffuse) individuations and thus knowable. I have worked with clients who connect more to some of these lofty presences by going through the Angelic version of them and then on up into the highest Spirit forms. Of course, once one is aware of the vaster Spirit, they are only concerned with continuing into God’s heart.

Working with the Archangelic is not about going back to the Angelic to try to squeeze into our pastel robes. It’s about availing ourselves to the intangible wild freedom of their absolute surrender to the Lord. It’s to use to our spiritual advancement their sage counsel, overflowing loving, protective nature, creativity, and all those things we consider magical and mystical about Angels. However, we must not stop there, but instead take that boost up and, when we are high enough in our awareness, kick out the stepstool. (Apologies to the Archangels for that analogy!)

And They Worship Us Too…

Angels are born in remembrance and surrender to the Lord, and it is to this state that we evolve. As humans, we forget God once we are no longer a tiny child and we are born free choice and the ability to co-create. It is to this state to which the angelic evolves. We are born into where they evolve; they are born into where we evolve. We are dancing into God together. We can therefore assist each other to get there more gracefully and expediently. Though we tend to worship them, they could say to us:

“We worship you, Beloveds, for you walk in this world heavily sheathed in a dream, having forgotten that God made you in His own image. And yet, of your own accord, you choose to love God and more, to love as God loves. Thus, through His human consciousness the Lord loves Himself awake. You are not human; you are not angelic; you are born the Lord.”

In my experience, Angels are not mysterious. They are ordinary, ubiquitous, and an immediate movement into the Divine. And so are you.

What We Can Learn About True Freedom From Ex-Convicts, Special Ops Vets and Byron Katie

Alisha Das Hayes and Byron Katie“Sweetie, you’re not getting this. I could be like Hannibal Lector and bite a nose off a face. I could have my guys kill for me, but I liked it to be up close and personal. I killed pimps, cho mo’s [Child molesters], dealers…the cops would actually thank me, give me back my weapons, and say have a nice day, sir.”

This is from an actual conversation I had recently! I sat on the floor with Viking. * He’s three times my size, and he just laughed when I asked how he killed in prison without weapons. He had made a journey few ever will—from the most violent death-row convict to a free, (mostly) peaceful man.

Allow me to fill you in on the twenty-four hours before this conversation. I had gone to an invitation-only Byron Katie/ Inside Circle Foundation (ICF) event in California wine country. This was to be the first time ever ex-convicts (and we’re talking former lifers) would share with “free people” the transformational work they’d done in prison. I had come because Byron Katie’s daughter, Roxann, invited me and I trusted her implicitly, but I had been told nothing about what would occur.

In the training room, I saw the roughest-looking men I’d ever seen. I thought we were there to serve them but they were clearly intending to serve us. Big Andrew* whooped a Native American invocation as sage burned. Rob, a biker with a long white ponytail, read stunning inmate poetry. Then they presented the ground rules. We didn’t make it past the first one—no violence.

The Divine Unknowing

N.B. from Alisha: I edited the following transcript of comments from both Michael and I at one of our recent Inner Knowing classes. We each contributed about half of the material. For simplicity, I use the first person throughout. The subject is so vast and challenging, please consider this just our first blush of describing (really just pointing towards) the infinite, multicolored palate referred to as the ‘Divine Unknowing,’

“I want Michael to mentor me, teach me to do what he does” folks often report. My cheeky reply is usually, “Me too. By all means, go for it so we can compare notes.’ The truth is Michael did mentor me but not in the way one might think. He didn’t sit me down with a formula, lists, or really even any satisfying answers about how to do what he does. What he did do was work with me (for thousands of hours, bless him) to remove barriers within to accessing Divine Unknowing. He would then throw me in the deep end and yank me out if I was truly drowning. I don’t think I would have had it any other way (I say that now, in the respite of being safe on shore. Don’t ask me when I’m sputtering away again.)

He also allowed me to work on him as his practitioner (Talk about intimidating) and assiduously encouraged me to work with others long before I felt ready. Whether it’s counseling, having a baby, running a race… if we wait until we feel or think we are ready (as opposed to being called from within) we’ll always be stuck in the starting gate endlessly preparing, wistfully watching others charge ahead-maybe to certain death or worse, profound embarrassment, but they are moving, acting. I consider greater access to the Divine Unknowing the greatest thing Michael imparted to me that enables me to do what I do.

Of course, we all have equal access to Divine knowing but we may not all be mutually willing to walk, with trust and faith, through that bright, mysterious portal of Divine Unknowing. In my experience, it is simpler (not easier) than our ‘all knowing’ minds or egos tell us it is. I have found if I relinquish all pretense of knowing, sit long enough, in a still, surrendered place, and earnestly confess (often out loud) “I don’t know,” the answers will come if there is purposefulness to them. I then sit in silence yet longer to double check my discernment about whether it’s the purest voice I hear, sense and which information is to be shared. In my experience, it is, unfortunately, not on demand and not one second before God’s timing. I’ve sat and started stupidly at many a client until that knowing came forward. My mind at this point is usually smart enough to not offer it’s helpful answers. The only time I am that patient, present and slow is when I am working. Languidly relaxing into the pool of Divine Unknowing opens us to the vast ocean of Divine Knowing which flows through every beating heart.

To some extent, we’re dealing with moving past limitations of time and space. We tend to identify ourselves spatially or temporally (E.G. I take up or move through this space, this is my age etc.) When we break free of the limiting ways we’ve defined ourselves in time or space, we are liberated from a pretense of knowing. We realize we’ve just adopted a conditioned conceptualization that is helpful in navigating this [dream] reality but is far from the whole story of who we are and what we have access to as infinite beings

In ancient days, there was more of a collective mentality and emotionality. Everybody knew much more of what others were feeling and thinking. A form of telepathy was the norm. Some say the Aborigines are still able to communicate over distance by sending a thought. This was inherent within us. But then collectively, as a species, we bought into other tools of getting and sharing information. The principal one was increasing the use and sophistication of language.

About seven years ago, I was on trip to Columbia with John-Roger and a group of MSIA participants. Part of the ancient karma we were working to lift had to do with the advent of sophisticated language in that part of the world. Long ago, a civilization that came out of Antarctica with this greater mental sophistication had spread throughout South America, bringing with it the greater adoption of language as a dominant way of connecting to and sharing with others. Over thousands of years, it helped bring about the forgetting of what was innately knowable between humans and consequentially led to an over reliance on spoken language. This led to what is sometimes called sophistry, the use of clever language in presentation or debate in order to convince or manipulate other people.

We have come to the point where we rely more upon language, rather than upon what our knowing and instincts are telling us. For example, someone may tell us we can trust him or her and all the while they have the intention to take from us or to control us. We override our gut feeling and intuition that is seeking to reveal to us the difference between the words that are spoken and the true intention of those speaking them. This is a huge key that we have largely lost in our communication with others. Just because we want something to be so doesn’t make it so, but it does incline us to see it so.

John-Roger said we human beings create, promote or allow all things in our lives. It is said that we are created in God’s own image. I suggest that God creates, promotes and allows all things as do we, his children. God created this manifest reality that we experience. He promotes it by individuating and then extending Himself into what He had created. His intention is to experience and learn about his creation by individuating Himself. Then he comes back into the totality of Spirit with all of his learnings. As he has set this process in motion, he rarely interferes with it. We could say that he allows it to play out to see how it all works.

We, God’s individuation in this world, are learning to allow what is going on as He does. The key into the Divine unknowing is to allow it. For example, God allows holocausts, poverty, body odor, taxes, inequity between the rich and the poor… He allows a lot of things, which we might say we don’t like. Yet God is obviously not having a problem with it the way we think He should because He seems to be in no hurry to change it. He allows all of this because He learns through it. As God’s individuation into this world, we create problems and we create solutions. God learns through all of this and all of us. God loves all of His creation. As we move our consciousness into alignment with God’s will, we accept and allow all that is present. Doing so brings us into the freedom and empowerment of God’s consciousness.

I was recently meditating and I experienced the allowing of God. It was profound to realize that God loves all things and impartially allows it all to take place. He is truly letting go and letting God. I realized that God’s allowing all things includes miracles. I understood that God, in His allowing all things, allows us to change what has been created. He allows us to do the miraculous. So if I want to learn to break free of all mental constructs and constraints, God’s allowing that, too. So why not?

If you take the word ‘allow’ and ‘allowance’, it’s like you’re given an allowance, a gift. It’s like God says, “You’ve done well, so here’s your allowance. Go spend it as you will.” That allowance is this greater capacity to tap into the Divine unknowing from whence all knowing flows. That mind set of the allowing is what takes one into the Divine unknowing. You become absolutely neutral and, all of a sudden, knowing comes present.

Do you know what will move against it? The prejudices in the mind, the ego, and the conceptualizations we have in which we make things good or bad. All these distinctions are spatially and time-based. We get into those distinctions and all of a sudden we’re out of the allowing of God. The less agenda or personalization we have, the more we will have answers and knowing come present. The more we’re personally engaged, the harder it’s going to be. In the allowing, the absolute surrender into God, the miraculousness of the moment comes present. When you experience it, it’s, ‘Behold, I make all things new.’

That’s when there’s such a thing as spontaneous remission. I know one lady who was told she had cancer and that there was no cure for it. She got her aura worked on, came back, the doctor looked, and there was no cancer. So why does this happen? Because she went into the allowing. Some people say God must’ve extended Grace to allow that. But maybe SHE extended into Grace, into the allowing, and, Behold, all things were made new. She broke past the conceptual boundaries of her existence in time and space. We are in a time where all the ‘rules’ are being broken.

These kinds of things can open when you go into allowing and don’t have the hidden boundaries of what’s possible to know, which then becomes what’s possible to manifest. When I did fire walking I did some mental exercises for an hour and a half and walked on fifteen hundred degree coals and did not get burned, even when I picked them up. I realized all I did was change something. What did I change? I changed my awareness state. I knew reality differently and so reality was different for me. I didn’t change my belief to be able to do it; I changed what I knew and then did what I knew I could. I experienced it, which led me to believe it could be done. Believing differently did not precipitate the change; it was a byproduct of knowing and manifesting the fruit of that knowing. It will be the same for you as go into the Divine Unknowing. Your manifestation will change and then you will believe.

Why Work with the Angelic?

Alisha HayesTo me, it’s more a question of if it’s working with you (and it likely is) is it the highest choice to become a more conscious participant? I’d like to share my experience with you.

We, who are spiritually oriented, have had anywhere from most of our incarnations in the Angelic to at least taken a lifetime field trip or two there. Some of us are quite recent immigrants. Therefore, it can be helpful to consciously visit the angelic to complete any unfinished business, karma, there. We may also need to retrieve any streaming parts of us still wistfully casting our eyes to that place where our heftiest responsibility was to trill praises to God whom we never forgot. As if. We can feel like a stranger in a strange land here where we have to pay bills, be on time (whatever the heck that contrivance is) and deal with negativity in a much different way. Sometimes tremendous compassion and forgiveness spills from us as we finally give ourselves a break for being (seemingly) ineffective here when we remember how different it is.

It can also be helpful to be more cognizant of the angelic so you can better understand and then bypass, clear, even educate Lucifer (the first fallen angel) and his demons (also fallen angels) rather than fear or be unconsciously run by them. Easier to deal with the ‘enemy’ when you understand them.

It is not about going to the angelic to try to squeeze back into our shimmering robes again. It’s about availing ourselves to the wild freedom of their absolute surrender to the Lord. To use to our advancement their sage counsel, overflowing loving, protection and well all those things that are magical and mystical about Angels but to NOT STOP THERE. Take that boost straight up and when you are high enough, kick out the stepstool (Apologies to Archangel Michael for that analogy but you get my drift). You are not human; you are not angel; you are born the Lord.

Angels are born in remembrance of and surrender to God, which is to where we evolve. We are born in forgetfulness but with the ability to awaken and co-create, which is to where they evolve. We are, in essence, bridging into God together and so can assist each other to get there more gracefully and expediently. We tend to worship them but I heard inside:

“We worship you perhaps even more-for you walk in this world heavily sheathed in a dream having forgotten that the Beloved made you in Its own image. And yet, of your own accord, you choose to love God and more, to love as God loves. Thus through His human consciousness God loves Itself awake.”

In my experience, Angels are not mysterious. They are ordinary, ubiquitous, mostly formless and an immediate movement into the Divine. And so are you.

God bless you and I love you,


The Archangel of the Covenant

Alisha HayesThere are 24 Great Archangels that I have seen so far out of a few hundred Archangels (and trillions of angels). They are quite rarified.

One of them gave its name to me as The Archangel of the Covenant. In my experience, this one reaches into places within each of us that seem empty. Of course, we are never truly empty, but we do perceive we are at times. If we were ‘perfect’ there would be no change, no action, no karma, no movement. Therefore, the only thing that is perfect is change.

If we were perfect what would we learn? We’d be one with God. We’d be Christed IN OUR AWARENESS as well as in our reality. If we were perfect in our awareness there would really be no point to this creation and karma. In the dynamic of creation there is that illusion or that play of separation, incompleteness, imperfection. What’s the blessing, the opportunity in this imperfect level? The opportunity for God as us to awaken, to rediscover itself again, to fall in love all over again, of it’s own free accord, free will.

The Archangel of the Covenant assists us to gain this altitude, to move into cooperation and acceptance of that which is as perfect (in all it’s imperfection). It brings in the completion of the Lord. The Archangel of the Covenant is the helpmate of the Lord in this way.

Have you heard it said, “if you strive towards excellence in God’s name it will be completed by the Christ?” This is a similar action. It brings in the wholeness of God’s promise to us, as us.

To over simplify it: If we do God the favor of walking through this world (with all its trials and tribulations) to bring back the experience of the Lord back to Itself, then we are promised that we will be restored in that completion and wholeness.

So when you call upon the Angel of the Covenant, it can bring you into that precious awareness of ‘I’m restored in God. I am whole. The promise is already manifest. I am just walking these steps while I remember who I am and remember that promise that has never left me, never forsaken me. Maybe I’ve closed my eyes and ears and haven’t been aware of it, but the promise is within me, alive in me, holding me in loving forever.’

The Archangel of the Covenant restores us to that spiritual promise. It reminds us, it brings us that altitude of ‘Oh yeah, I remember before I incarnated this time I thought ‘this will be easy. 80 years, blink of an eye. I’ll learn all these cool lessons for God and be restored to heaven everlasting forever more. Easy Breezy’.

The Archangel of the Covenant reminds us to not take all this so seriously and that we are never, ever doing this alone. That all is, we are perfect now.

God Bless You and I love you. Alisha
