Working with the angels

In my discussion group at the New Lanark Communiities Conference I tested a hypothesis that we could get in touch with the Third Hierarchy through three questions:

    How am I? Leading onto the question of my life’s purpose, as revealed by Stephen Covey’s funeral visualisation exercise, and the question what would make me truly happy.
    How are we? In whatever level of ‘we’ one chooses – in the group, in the Conference, in the UK.
    How is the world? What are the challenges we’re struggling with as present-day humanity?

Working with a mixed ability group made this easier, as the people with learning difficulties are often better at speaking directly from their experience here and now, even if sometimes their comments needed a bit of interpretation.
It worked quite well, for a first attempt. Interestingly the final question led quite naturally to the further question of what we could do. Spontaneously the group wanted to sing ‘Deep peace…’
I am interested in how to find the questions beneath the questions. It’s so easy to recoil in horror from world events, and to get numbed. Also easy to go through a pattern of What can I do? Realistically, nothing – feel guilty about that, so feel nothing. Thinking with the Archangels and Archai allows me to check whether my personal purpose is in line with the world’s purpose, and so feel I am contributing.

    … in line with the world’s purpose … where can I find the source ? It must be that moment when I decided to come back to earth and I gave myself a purpose, an intention for this life. Of course, it is easier said than done and one does not jump there in a second ! A first step is to look at one’s life. If we are on the way, it means that we have been practising for quite a while and there must be traces. Somehow, if we look well we can recognise the red thread. This is a new kind of reading and just like the reading we learnt as a child, once we master it, we can make something out of it. The «it» being our talents, which we usually avoid to look at and which are there because I did build them up. Talents suddently live in a landscape, they are realities to be taken seriously. There is no glory, just responsibilities.

    This is a very wonderful opening to “conversation”, as hinted at in Goethe’s play, “The green snake and the beautiful lily”.
    Another way of opening up conversation that I have found useful, is to ask the question “What does this mean?” If something interesting is happening in your life, whether it is at a particular moment, or ongoing, I have had some awesome responses in pictorial form, in dreams. I don’t always have an immediate interpretation; often it is something I have to wait to understand, the trick is to make sure it is an open-ended question.
    Also, to Great Britain in general, as the olympic torch relay has begun, be open to the positive forces now streaming in. The experience here in Vancouver, especially the 2 weeks that the olympics ran, was something that surpassed all expectations, and could not have been predicted. I hope that for London, with all its current trials and tribulations, this will be a great gift.
    It is no coincidence that the motto is, “We Believe”.
