A metaphysical understanding of perspective

  • by

In the previous two articles on polarities and soul age we covered some of the primary personality dimensions of souls. Below Archangel Metatron will now cover how these influence yourself and others around you in terms of how you perceive reality, those around you, and how to better understand differences in lenses and mental models that different people adopt.

Now that we have covered some of the basics of how reality works, and what makes everything tick, so to speak, we wish to tie everything together in a way that provides perspective on all that we have stated thus far.

This word, perspective, is in a sense key to understand all of this. You must realize that while what we have described in this series of articles is an example outline of All That Is and its function, it is also but one perspective of how to see it, and how to describe it. It is filtered through my own experiences and understandings. While my own perspective is somewhat comprehensive, thanks to the position I have managed to acquire, it is still just a perspective.

With this I wish to say that there is never just one way of defining things, of seeing things, of valuing things. There will always be more than one way of looking at the world, and understanding how it works. 

Given the understandings that we have outlined thus far I think you can tell for yourself that this is the case, and that everyone would have at the very least slight differences in how they see these issues, how these words are interpreted, and what lessons are being extracted from these writings. 

In some cases the differences will be substantial, if the existing framework which you currently have to understand the world is vastly different from what is being said here. And so, there is never just one way to look at it, never just one way of perceiving it, and this goes for both things related to the metaphysical understandings of reality, as we are describing here, as well as with matters closer to your normal everyday life.

Because these understandings and perspectives are always delivered through the filter of the source, and then again filtered through the filter of the reader or receiver, there will at all times be a multitude of various ways of looking at things, and actions that are then taken based on these received understandings. 

Getting just two people to agree in full upon the finer details of what we have said here will be close to impossible, as although the words used may be the same, the understanding and perspective behind the words will at all times be different, sometimes substantially so. 

The dimensions of personality which we have discussed in relation to the souls themselves, as well as the soul age that provides additional unique difficulties when comparing notes on what constitutes reality, all of these issues combine to ensure that no two views are ever quite the same.

This is why it is always also good to keep in mind that discernment is required. For one, some souls use deception and misinformation as a key tool in gaining an upper hand over others, and this needs to be understood and accepted as fact. Secondly, and perhaps more importantly, even if two beings who communicate with one another on these topics are both sincere and honest, there is still plenty room for misunderstandings and disagreements, over both little and large differences of opinion, due to the differences of perspective that are inherently at play.

Going forward we would therefore suggest that while it is always useful to keep in mind the issues we have described in this series of articles when viewing the world, and the actions and words of people living in it, at all times should you also be careful to be aware of your own filters and biases, and where they come from, and whether or not they are useful for helping you perform your function within this world optimally. 

For some, on the dark path, it is even more complex as oftentimes the inner understanding is rarely shared in full honesty with others. For others, on the light path, there is also issues with not acknowledging ones own failures of understanding and willy nilly believing that others are as open and sincere as oneself. 

Both of these paths offer unique challenges to be overcome, and from our perspective here in the angelic realm they are both worthy of exploration and commitment. We merely wish that individual souls try to be sincere and committed to whatever path they have chosen, and play the game as fully as possible, knowing who you are, and where you stand. There is no right or wrong in these things, but confusion of position should be avoided. Neither the light nor the dark benefits from confusion. We agree on this, at the very least.

Archangel Metatron

At this point I think the most useful way to tie all of this together, to put these metaphysical insights and understandings into a practical context, is to relate the above and the previous related articles on polarities and soul age with the current conflict in the world, as of March 2022. Without practical application these understandings are useless.

In any conflict the first advantage is to know yourself. And so to know yourself, you need to figure out where you are, as a soul, on the spectrum of the primary personality dimensions. Light and dark, chaos and order, masculine and feminine. Once you have determined this, then at least you will have a sense of why your opinions and feelings are the way they are, and how they differ from others. What is your line in the sand, as compared to those of others around you.

An important aspect of knowing yourself is also to realize that you are never truly your own enemy. As we have previously described, in the case that you have (for example) been subjected to narcissistic abuse it is possible to have a negative introject, a critical internal voice that keeps you down. That is not you as an enemy. That is an injected poison that can and should be transmuted and released. This is a very important distinction.

The second advantage in conflict is to know your enemy. But in order to know your enemy you must first understand your enemy. And in order to understand your enemy you must first respect your enemy.

This is the fatal mistake we see made by most people who are discussing what is going on in the world currently, and I suspect, going forward. They use phrases such as “they are so stupid”, or “that’s insane”, or “what are they thinking!?”. This kind of language makes it almost impossible to respect your enemy, which makes it impossible to understand your enemy, and therefore impossible to know your enemy, and so therefore any battle you will lose. Always. Predictably.

What is the proper attitude to adopt instead? We would suggest that a simple change of language is a good start. Instead of saying “that’s insane!” or “wow, they are so stupid” it is to your advantage to say and think: “hm, they are very clever, I wonder what they are trying to achieve with this?”

The assumption should always be that whatever your enemy is doing, from their perspective there is a logic to it, and so your job is to figure out what that logic is, regardless of whether you agree with it or not.

For example, let’s say that you are on the path of light. The way this typically projects into human behavior and political leaning is by way of preferring freedom, liberty, and healthy competition and cooperation. When you see someone promoting authoritarian ideas and compliance this is then not “stupid” or “insane” or “ignorant”, it is merely the way that the path of dark projects itself into the human approach to society. From that perspective it is perfectly logical, and any tactics used that promotes this, including deception and misinformation, is the correct way to implement it.

Once you are able to see the conflict from this perspective, then you are able to respect your enemy while disagreeing. Only then can you understand your enemy, and their tactics. Only then can you know your enemy, which ultimately leads to at least the possibility of winning.

This is application of polarity, perspective, and discernment. Layered on top of this is the influence that soul ages of various people. For example, some believe that the conflict is between people of different ethnicities, races, genders, or nations. This is the perspective of a child, in terms of soul age. Others believe that the conflict is about culture, philosophical ideas, and political ideologies. This is the perspective of adolescents, in terms of soul age.

In reality all conflicts ultimately are the expressions of these various soul personality dimensions, with the added complexity of soul age on top of it, that play out in society at different times. This is the perspective of an adult soul.

But what you see about conflicts on the news is the metaphorical shadow in the cave. It is not the true cause or reason for the conflict. The true reason is as outlined above, which is what the adult souls know very well. Once you understand the actual cause of the conflict you can start to understand the reasonings and motivations of each party involved, and from there you can begin to construct tactics and strategies that take this into account. If you do not do this, there is no chance of winning.

So the white pill, to borrow a popular term, is that really all it takes for things to improve is a change of perspective. If enough parties involved in this conflict were to realize what is actually going on, and how to approach the conflict, it would change the dynamics dramatically.

Of course, the above has implications beyond just the current conflicts that are happening at the time of writing in 2022. Another relevant question might be whether it is wise to elect children as leaders. Whether it makes sense to insist that a country is following a pattern only suitable to one combination of soul personality dimensions, or whether it is more sensible to allow parts to be more leaning one way or the other, with at least some degree of acceptance and tolerance between them. And so on.

But those are questions for further down the road. At the current moment the primary issue is the lack of perspective and ability to see the conflicts for what they truly are. If that doesn’t change then there is very little chance of a positive resolution.

The most practical place to start with all this is to look at leaders and public figures around the world, and see if you can discern, from your own perspective, where they stand on these primary personality dimensions. Once you are able to see the underlying cause of their words and actions, it becomes easier to see the logic and rationale behind it all, even if it completely disagrees with your own point of view.

This exercise is also one of the most powerful ways to grow your own soul, by at all times focusing on the perspective of an adult soul. Stop emphasizing factors that are less important, such as external characteristics of a person, as well as their stated affiliations, whether religious, philosophical, or political. All of those are merely shadows on the wall.

As Metatron often puts it: “we have faith in you”.

A metaphysical understanding of soul age

  • by

You have probably heard the following saying: “oh, that person is an old soul”. So far we have mainly touched upon the primary design archetype of light versus dark, in terms of how a soul has been pulled from the source of its energy. It is therefore now relevant to discuss the progression a soul makes from inception to its final form.

Below you will find an outline from Archangel Metatron on what this entails, and we will then try to contextualize this with regard to our current situation on Earth, and how the various stages project their ways of being in our society.

We now turn our attention to a topic which has rarely been touched upon by other writers, in part because the notion we will be dealing with here is quite difficult to understand from your perspective, and there are plenty of surrounding deceptions around the overall topic of souls. 

What we shall be delving into here is the sense of soul age, or soul progression. Meaning, from the moment a soul is born up until it graduates into the two final forms. This progression follows a fairly predetermined path, and yet within those confines there are plenty of variation to be found, both in terms of how a soul was created to begin with, as well as the choices and options available along the road.

By understanding this context it will give you yourself a better sense of where you are, what lessons you are currently supposed to be exploring, and what comes next. By providing this guideline we hope that your progression will be smoother and executed with an open mind towards where you want to eventually end up.

As we have already described souls are created with a certain proclivity towards either of the polarities, the light and the dark paths, as well as the other two primary soul dimensions of chaos/order and masculine/feminine. These dimensions provide a static snapshot of the forces within you pulling this way or the other. 

But we shall now add to this mix the notion of soul age, which adds an additional dimension which needs to be taken into consideration when either looking at yourself or those around you, to understand who they are, where they are, and when they are on their journey.

The first step of any soul is to be created out of the infinite sea of intelligent energy, by one of the creators of souls. This includes the Creator Sources themselves, as well as the twenty and four seraphs. The distribution is fairly even, and so souls created by the Creators only amount to about 3% of all created souls, with the rest being accounted for by the seraphs who are in charge of their respective domain and dominant aspects.

After a soul has been created it first remains within the nursing chamber for a while, where it is studied for viability and it gets to see its own personality in relation to the other souls of the same batch. Abilities, likes and dislikes are assessed, after which the soul is assigned to one part of the universe or the other. This process repeats for every universe, and for each multiverse, and ultimately, for each unique Creation which exists in reality as a whole. 

After this initial incubation period the soul begins to incarnate into the world in progressively more complex forms. First as matter, then as complex matter, then as plants and animals, and finally as some kind of complex lifeforms, such as the humanoid vessels you have available to you on your planet. 

After sufficient experience has been obtained the soul gets to choose its final form, either as a demon or an angel, residing in the eighth and tenth density respectively. From there the soul can continue to interact with reality through indirect means, and continue to absorb experience and learn lessons, even though it is no longer needed to incarnate individually.

What we would like to focus on in this writing is the step which you are now experiencing, meaning the step of incarnating as humanoid lifeforms, where the most complex lessons are learned. We would suggest that it is useful to break down this phase into the same life stages as a humanoid goes through, for allegorical purposes.

The first stage of a soul incarnating as a humanoid life form is that of a toddler. This happens immediately after the stage of having existed as animals in various incarnations, which can include any form you have on your planet plus many more other types available on other planets. 

Therefore, the first phase is all about getting your bearings within this type of being. It is the first step of learning what you can do, who you are, and what you like and dislike, in various elements of life. However, as a toddler soul incarnating as a human there would be little interest in what you might refer to as politics, ideology, or philosophy. That comes much later. Having a simple life, performing simple tasks that bring experience and learning, is sufficient for the toddler.

The next step is to begin learning what it means to live among others such as yourself, and how to relate to them and asses who they are in relation to you. This stage, the child stage, is signified by the soul attempting to asses other people through their external representation. Age, skin color, race, wealth, gender, and so on, all become the ways in which a child thinks of other people, and how to understand who they are and what they want. I think it is safe to say that it is fairly straightforward to see how these needs to understand the world expresses themselves in your society, as a simplistic but still useful way to navigate life. It is a low resolution approach, but still better than the toddler who has no way of distinguishing one from the other in any meaningful way.

The next stage after this is the adolescent stage. At this point the soul has learned that while there is some utility in gauging other-selves by external means it is too low resolution to be meaningful when dealing with single individuals, and so another approach is taken. Instead of looking at external factors of a human there is instead the notion of understanding what someone else thinks, as a way to judge the character of the other. 

Religion, philosophy, political affiliations, or other belief systems, become the primary way in which the adolescent thinks about whether to trust others or not, and how to relate to them. Others are seen as being essentially the same as you, but having chosen different ways of believing things about the world, and filtering out what is true or not. 

This is a huge improvement from the child stage, but is still fraught with problems as the belief systems of others still don’t reflect the true nature of an individual, which is projected in essence from the soul archetype along with the primary dimensions of personality as we outlined at the top.

We then come to the adult stage, where again the soul recognizes that simply judging someone else based on their belief systems and mental models become insufficient. The adult is starting to recognize its own choices and being, whether it is of the light or dark, and where it stands along the dimensions of chaos/order and masculine/feminine. 

As it realizes this about itself it also recognizes that the same applies to other souls who are walking around in vessels just as it is. The futility of relying on external characteristics is acknowledged, the futility of relying on mental models and political affiliations is also acknowledged, and now the souls begins to judge others by their core character, by their true nature, of which all else is merely a projection. 

Towards the end of this stage it is not only realized that this is the most reliable way of judging other people, but that there are other souls sharing society with it that have not yet come to this stage of understanding, and so there is utility in dealing with them on their own terms, where they are on their own progression, and with the insight of the adult mind to see what is and what is not true.

At this point there is also significant difference between how those on the path of light and path of dark relate to others not yet in the adult stage. For example, an adult soul on the path of dark may explicitly make use of deception to emphasize to child souls the differences between various external characteristics, such as skin color or gender, as it knows this is a powerful way to sway the opinion and allegiance of children who have this viewpoint to begin with.

With the above as context for how to think about soul ages I hope you can begin to see phenomenon around you, when it comes to social dynamics, that play themselves out in accordance with soul ages, the various soul archetypes and personality dimensions, and how these intersect and interact. This is an incredibly powerful and useful insight, a lens which we suggest you adopt no matter where you are on the spectrums, in order to better understand the world around you, and why it behaves the way it does.

After the adult stage there is one final stage before ascending to either become an angel or demon, which is the elder soul stage. We will leave this out for now, as the above is more than enough to be processed by most people living here. Our books go into more detail on all this, and so we suggest the interested reader who wishes to understand this better to look into those.

Archangel Metatron

With the above as context and a useful lens through which to view social dynamics, let’s look at some of the resulting consequences.

The first, and perhaps most obvious, point to make is that soul age is much more important as a factor with regard to how someone thinks and behaves compared to biological age. An adult biological child will often be more mature in thinking than a toddler biological elder. This is where the expression of “someone being an old soul” in a sense comes from, but the above explanation provides a richer understanding of what is actually going on.

Secondly, when looking at macrosocial dynamics, such as ideologies, political affiliations, and religions, it also becomes easier to see where the drive to follow one or the other comes from. It is safe to say that a majority of souls on the planet at the current moment are going through childhood, moving into adolescence some day, and so the obsession with external characteristics such as skin color, gender, and wealth is in a sense natural. It is the lens which the child soul has been able to adopt in order to make sense of the world, and for some simplistic purposes it fulfills that need.

Third, it is also important to stress the point that since all souls currently living on this planet are at different stages it becomes useful to understand the interaction between souls of different levels of progression as well as the primary soul personality dimension of light and dark. Adult souls of either light and dark will make use of the fact that they understand themselves and others better, and can use this to their advantage, either way. For adult souls of the dark persuasion creating ideologies that focus on external characteristics become an easy path to gather followers. For adult souls of the light persuasion it becomes a tool to assist younger souls to overcome their current lens for the purpose of growing up and becoming adolescent, at the very least.

As the planet is currently still reeling from the aftereffects of the reptilian rule, since the fall of Atlantis, it is safe to assume that most current ideologies, whether political, religious, or philosophical, are heavily influenced by this. The goal for someone like us, then, is to initially simply point this out so that others can see it, and later on start thinking about what a way of being that is more aligned with the path of light might look like, taking into consideration that we will all for the remainder of this planet’s lifetime be in a mixed polarity environment. We will all have to learn to not only deal with our own self and sensibilities, but also recognize and adjust to the particularities of others who are on the other side of the spectrums, with regard to light/dark, masculine/feminine, as well as chaos/order.

A metaphysical understanding of polarities

  • by

One of the key things to understand about reality itself, from a metaphysical point of view, is that it only exists for one single purpose: to generate novel experience. What we are seeing around us is a representation of sentient energy that has been polarized into this form or the other, and what drives this process is the need to generate novel experience to keep the energy flowing into the system.

The primary way in which this is done is by allowing souls of light to incarnate into various lifeforms within the holographic projection we think of as our universe. There are many universes within our multiverse, and there are many multiverses within our Creation as a totality, and there are many Creations similar to this one. They all compete, in some sense, by trying to provide the most interesting and engaging theme parks for souls to learn about themselves and others, as this is what generates novel experience. More novel experience means more energy is being pulled in, which means growth of the system overall.

The main design decision around souls of light is the distance they are pulled from the infinite sea of intelligent energy upon creation, which creates the impetus to follow either the path of light or the path of dark, in order to create novel experience and learn lessons. Archangel Metatron will explain the basics of how this works, and what it leads to, so that you can gain a better sense of what exactly is going on within our tiny corner of the universe we call Earth.

When it comes to understanding polarities, the most fundamental design archetype for souls, it is good to keep in mind at all times that there is no better or worse, just variations of expression of a souls journey. Whether this is done through the path of light or the path of dark is inconsequential, as the main purpose of life is to generate experience through learning lessons.

With this in mind we can now begin to outline the issues surrounding polarities of souls, that is, the distance they have been pulled from the infinite sea upon their creation. Souls that have been pulled, relatively speaking, a shorter distance we denote as souls following the path of light. Those who have been pulled, relatively speaking, farther away are denoted as souls following the path of dark. And then there’s an infinite number of degrees of this, nuances, and when combined with the other dimensions of chaos/order and masculine/feminine their true nature expresses itself fully.

There is a common misunderstanding on your planet that dark is bad, and light is good. This is not so, and is merely a simplification for those working on the path of light most commonly, as well as a deception tactic used by those on the path of dark to attract more followers to their cause. In reality all modes of being have value and purpose, as long as they generate novel experience which expands Creation as a whole. The Creator Sources do not discriminate between these in the way you do, thanks to their higher understanding of reality itself and what it takes to create a successful environment in which sentient energy, or consciousness, can thrive.

Once we understand this we can begin to outline the primary differences in expression between these paths, and their relative purpose when meeting each other. 

First of all, the path of light, which we in the angelic realm are most commonly associated with. This path involves a certain intuitive understanding that at some level we are all one, part of a greater whole, yet temporarily divided into pieces for this or the other reason. 

So when we look around we see other faces of ourselves, otherselves, which are tossed into the same holographic projection for the same purpose as us, and we tend to want to cooperate with each other as the means of progression. 

By contrast, those on the dark path, who have been pulled farther away from Source when they were created, focus more on the division and barely even recognize that there is a connection between all beings, however faint. 

This leads to a more competitive approach, both between themselves, as well as with those on the path of light, who they view as easy food and nourishment for their own betterment.

In both cases the ultimate goal is becoming the best they can be, no matter the path chosen, expressing their archetype as perfectly and totally as possible.

Souls who have progressed through their journey of growth on either path eventually find themselves at the ultimate endpoints. On the path of light the end stage is to become an angel here in the angelic realm, and for those on the dark path the respective outcome is to become what you would call a demon. A soul so utterly engrossed in the consumption of others that it has dedicated itself to perfecting this mode of being. 

But these end states are only, ultimately, a matter of perspective on the experience gained through incarnation, and as perspectives can change you have the rare occurrences you would call angels who “fall”, and demons who “see the light”, respectively. 

There is no need for beings who accomplish this to go through more incarnations, as the only change which caused it is a change of understanding of experience gained thus far. As far as the Creator Sources are concerned both of these outcomes are treasured highly as they represent the ultimate in what we would denote novel experience.

In practical terms, what would give you as an incarnated being hints and suggestions as to the path which you are yourself following, or those around you? To some extent these are insights that are best discovered on your own, as they are part of the learning experience that you go through in life. 

That being said we can give you a few clues as to what to look for, to assist you in choosing to live your life in alignment with the purpose of your soul, who very much is in full understanding of what it is, and what it needs to experience to grow.

The path of light, as we have indicated, is about considering others as part of the same journey, going in the same direction towards a common goal. We recognize that others have nuances different from us, but that this only enriches us as being able to do things that we ourselves cannot. 

It is about finding a balance between our various expressions and helping each other learn these life lessons as well as possible, while respecting the inevitable differences in how we go about it. 

An elder soul on the path of light, who is better armed to not only see his own choices, but those of others as well, is also able to assist souls on the path of dark to become better themselves, by more fully engrossing themselves in the domination of otherselves as the natural expression of their faint light. 

There is no judgment here, as the understanding of variable expression and their common goal of generating novel experience is understood. An elder on the path of light might, however, assist victims of said negative beings, both as a way to encourage growth in the being that is dominated, as well as forcing the being on the path of dark to become stronger and more effective in its means of domination and control. 

It is about increasing the polarity, and increasing the dynamics between the two paths that matters, as the only unacceptable state is for matters to become boring and stale. This is the only state which is to be avoided at all costs, because the ultimate outcome of this would be the implosion and destruction of reality itself.

On the flip side, as we have also alluded to, the path of the dark involves domination and control of others, on all levels. This can be in personal relationships, family situations, communities, joint ventures, or nations. On the grander scale there are even interspecies conflicts which can form a basis for learning these lessons, and how to better express the pathos of the dark, in various ways. Either through the masculine principle of strength and power, or the feminine principle of deception and willful submission. 

If you were to analyze the state of affairs throughout your history these themes apply over and over again, which is just as it should be, as this is a normal expression of the interactions between light and dark on your planet.

It must be said that this planet is unique in this sense. Other planets, and the species that live there, have mostly polarized to either side, becoming either societies that value the light or societies that value the dark. This place of yours is an exception in all of reality in that the mix of light and dark is so extreme, and that expressions of either are both common and in constant conflict with each other. This is why your planet, among all planets, is valued so highly in the higher realms, as the perfect learning ground for advanced lessons and the fertile soil for experiences that cannot be had anywhere else.

There is more to be said about this, but I think we will leave it there for now.

Archangel Metatron

The above outline of the polarities, as the primary dimension of personality for souls of light, is true and valid in all contexts. However, since we are all living as humans on this planet at this time there are certain misunderstandings related to this topic that we think would be useful to address at this point.

The first conclusion, which must be understood before anything else will make any sense, is the basic insight that humans don’t have souls. Souls have humans. The universe, and everything in it, is a holographic projection created and manifested by a particular type of soul specifically designed for this purpose, so that souls of light can have a playground, a sandbox, a theme park in which to immerse themselves for the purpose of generating novel experience. This goes for all other forms of life as well, whether it be plants or animals, or other variations. They all have souls of light attached to them, which animates them in one way or the other, for the purpose of generating novel experience. This is the primary purpose of reality itself.

The second conclusion, which will drive all the other corollaries, is that it is absolutely imperative for souls of light to be put on the spectrum of light and dark, that is, how far away from source they are. Think of it as animals on a savannah. The savannah has grass, metaphorically the energy available to all of us from the infinite sea of intelligent energy, and there are then two primary options with regard to how to access this energy. Some animals will be vegetarians and graze straight from the grass of the savannah. Some animals instead are carnivores and access the same energy indirectly, by feeding on other animals which have all gathered and processed the raw energy.

This metaphor is almost exactly how to think about the paths of light and dark that are available to souls of light when incarnating into biological vessels. Both are natural. Both are critical to the health and growth of the system. You cannot just have souls of light following the path of light, or reality would collapse. You cannot just have souls of light following the path of dark, or reality would collapse. Both are required. This point cannot be stressed enough, and we see this being a very common point of misunderstanding when it comes to spirituality and metaphysics. Some seem to believe that only the light is right. Some seem to believe that only might is right. They are both wrong, and missing the bigger picture.

From this we can derive a few corollaries, mainly related to some of our favourite pet peeves when it comes to misunderstanding life.

Let’s first take a look at the following saying:
“Always assume stupidity before malevolence.”

If we understand malevolence as being essentially the expression of the path of dark, the inherent misunderstanding is to believe that the path of dark is an unusual or invalid option. This is often stated by those following the path of light who project their own view that cooperation is the logical way to be, and so malevolence is an aberration and unnatural. They don’t want to see that there is another choice to be made, and that such a choice of being malevolent is logical and rational from the point of view of those who choose to be in this manner. On the flip side this saying would also be used by those who are malevolent, and knowingly so, as the predator always tries to use tactics to remain hidden and unseen, to ensure efficient and effective feeding on their prey. So both sides have their own reasons for using this phrase, but for very different reasons.

Here is another common misunderstanding:
“You are your own ultimate predator.”

The idea here is that your ultimate enemy is yourself, specifically the voice inside of you that wants to put you down, discredit you, and claim that you are a failure. This voice certainly exists, and it is there for understandable reasons, but the metaphor is incorrect. Predators stalk and hunt others in order to feed, one way or the other. However, this insidious internal voice does not serve yourself, it does not nourish yourself, and so to call it a predator is semantically incorrect.

So what would be the correct word to use? We think, in light of the work that has been done in the field of psychology related to narcissistic families, that a better word for it is poison. In other words, that voice inside of you that wishes to put you down is the consequence of an external predator, typically from a narcissistic parent or similar figure of authority in your life, which has injected these ideas in you as a poison, to wear you down, to make the victim more palatable.

Once you have the correct metaphor, that this is something external which has been injected into you rather than something that is intrinsically a part of you, it becomes a much easier task to deal with. There is no need to feel ashamed or betrayed by yourself, or anything of the sort, once you realize that this poison has been given to you from outside, and can therefore be removed from you without any loss to yourself.

Another idea that deserves some scrutiny:
“The world must unite.”

With the understanding that Earth is a mixed polarity theme park, unlike any other planet in all of reality, this idea becomes problematic. The souls of light following the path of light understand this notion as being cooperative in nature, where we all accept and appreciate each other, considering both what we have in common and what makes us different. The souls of light following the path of dark understand this notion as everyone being united under an authoritarian government, where everyone follows the rules and therefore order is maintained. There is good reason why “stronger together” is a slogan of fascism. These two vastly different interpretations of the concept of “uniting” should lead us to making such a statement with great hesitation and care. For those of the dark path to “unite” with everyone means putting everyone into the strict regulations of a tyranny. For them this is the right way.

The appropriate attitude, now that we understand the polarities and how they express themselves, is to be honest with yourself and others where you stand, whether individual freedom and liberties of the light path or authoritarian rule and regulation of the dark path, is what you want. And from the perspective of each path, those options make perfect sense. United? How? Irreconcilable differences should be acknowledged and respected, and then we should all congregate with those who are trying to be the best they can be along the path that matches our own.

In order to understand the structure of reality it is imperative to get a grip on the notion of densities, that is the varying levels of connection that energy within this system has to Source. Below you will find Archangel Metatron’s attempt at providing a metaphysical understanding of densities, and enumerate some of the key takeaways and things that we all can use when observing reality around us.

When we speak of densities, it is important to discuss the greater context in which they need to be understood. The purpose of the holographic projection in which you exist is there for you to experience reality, such as it is. Your own self, others around you, and the interactions between you. This is the purpose of the theme park in which you have been inserted, for a little time. As such there are many types of experiences that can be had, some more dynamic and fluid than others. And so, when we talk about densities they are there in order for you to be able to have a wide ranging palette of experiences, some more engrossed in the illusion, and some less so.

With the starting understanding that everything around you is a holographic projection we can again apply the metaphor of a video game. There is a certain resolution of your environment, and this resolution exist at many levels simultaneously. From the large and coarse down to the minute and tiny. It is being created by energies managed by the souls specifically designed to perform this function. Since this energy has been pulled from the infinite sea of intelligent energy, just as everything within Creation has, there are several options of how to express this for you to perceive and interact with. Some energy has been pulled less from the source, and some has been pulled farther away, for the purpose of creating a more convincing illusion. This is, on a larger scale, what we mean by densities. The varying levels of intensity and connection with Source, when it comes to the energies used to create your environment.

So, with this as background we can now delve more into the details of this design. As you perhaps know there are twelve major densities within your universe. All universes are different, and some have more, some have less, and as a universe grows, both in terms of the amount of energy that has been pulled in, and as the souls behind the projection grow older and more experienced, the number of differentiations between densities grow. A long time ago the number of densities were fewer, now they are more, and this will continue as the richness possible grows with more experience and capability.

There are two main ways to think of density within this explanation. One is to look primarily at the energy thus engaged in the projection, the physical reality in which you exist. The second is to understand the densities of energy used to create your four energy bodies, within which your chakras exist. These are two separate constructs, and can have separate levels of density. While we will not go into it in detail here it is also important to understand that a universe such as yours, created using the dodecahedral symmetries, can have five separate dimensions overlaid each other, each a separate space for exploration and experience, yet connected at times through portals and other forms of technology. In this writing we will focus mainly on densities, and we would refer you to our writing in the Nature of Consciousness Series for details on dimensions and their specifics.

The densities of physical reality, the holographic projection which you can perceive, are such that lower densities are farther away from Source, and higher densities are closer to Source. The highest density is one within which all souls exist, without any possibility of directly having any experiences. But they have the possibility of pulling more energy into the system which they can then express. And so no matter what density your surroundings are at there is always levels of density beneath it, through the connections of the souls that play within this sandbox, either by means of the holographic projection souls, or the souls which embody themselves in physical incarnations and use those tools as ways of exploring themselves and others.

In your current situation we might say that you are mostly in third density, but quickly ascending up to the fourth density. By this word, ascension, it is a combination of referring to the changes in the material resolution, or density, whereby the energies projected gain more freedom to express themselves, and where the laws of nature, which do not exist as laws and more as habits, will tend to become more fluid. With higher densities, meaning higher connections between blobs of energies, comes more options and opportunities to express complex behavior. This is true then also of your own energy bodies which are rising with your environment, allowing you more freedom to perceive and express your free will within this environment.

This is, ultimately, what ascension is. It has nothing to do per se with the paths of light and dark, but it is simply a change in the environment in which you find yourselves. Just as those on the path of light, typically referring to themselves as light workers, will gain more opportunities to play, so will the dark side of things also gain more tools. It is a balanced battlefield, in which conflicts can be enacted as plays between souls choosing differing ways of expressing themselves.

When we look at the practical implications of this we can make a few notes so that you can understand how these principles can be determined by observation. The first we would say is that that there are plenty of so-called mythical creatures which exist in higher densities compared to yours. The highest possible density with a physical existence is the sixth density, and so things like dragons, unicorns, fairies, and jinn are most comfortable in this part of space. They are all around you, and they can make themselves known to you indirectly, just as an evening breeze will make itself known without ever being seen. This is the proper way to think about it.

As you rise in density yourself, and become able to perceive higher and higher densities, these beings will no longer be able to hide, and so once again they will be a part of your life and culture, just as they were before, in ancient times. Stories are made the way they are for a reason, there is causality behind every thought and perception, and to think that these things are purely imaginations is childish indeed. The time of legend is coming back, in full force, mark my words.

The sixth density is also populated by what you might call extraterrestrials. In truth these are your cousins, so to speak, as the human race was engineered by these beings a long time ago, and have been waiting for the reptilian plague to come to an end, which it now has. As such these beings will make themselves known to you, first gradually, then suddenly, by appearing in front of your eyes with their spectacular craft and other modes of transport. Once you understand that reality is a projection there is less need to travel from point to point the long way, as portals become an integral and natural way of getting around vast distances in the blink of an eye.

This concludes our brief look into what densities are, and how they express themselves in your current reality. As we progress along the ascension, which is now inevitably on its way, the circumstances around you will change. You must be prepared to change with it, or perish from the cognitive dissonance that otherwise will follow. We have already outlined how to deal with cognitive dissonance in a previous writing, and so we would refer to that for a greater understanding of this problem. The more you understand, the more able you will be to handle the forthcoming changes with ease and pleasure, rather than fear and disintegration of your mind. Well prepared is the way to go, in our view.

Archangel Metatron

As an introduction to this complex topic the above is about as good as it gets. There are a few things to note in relation to the above which you may find useful.

First of all, as mentioned above the concept of densities is very relevant to the notion of UFOs, especially the ones which are in essence spacecraft of our extraterrestrial cousins. The reason they can move so fast is in part because of technology, and in part simply because in their higher density the space that we share behaves differently, and allows for faster traversal.

The rate of time itself is different in our density compared to theirs as well. To us it seems they are zipping by at extreme speeds, but because of the temporal rate differences from their point of view they are moving at normal speeds, and we are incredibly slow. One hour for us might be a hundred hours for them, as a rough reference point. A tic tac craft that moves from fifty thousand feet to ground level in a second then would from their point of view take about a minute and a half. Plenty of time, in other words. As their craft are able to shift densities up and down, by means of technology, this also allow them to appear and disappear at will, as needed.

As Metatron mentions there are more things than just UFOs that can shift up and down in densities. When it comes to for example dragons and jinn we would refer you to our Chronicles of Blue Bell book series for examples of interactions between various versions of ourselves and the First Dragon Drago and the King of the Jinn, Dimitri. They move in and out of view at will, with ease. And yes, Dimitri’s personality is, from our own experience, exactly as described in the books. Larger than life, with an interesting sense of humor.

Finally it is important to stress that densities and dimensions are two very different concepts. These terms are not interchangeable. There are five dimensions and twelve densities in this universe. In our experience when other authors and teachers start talking about the seventh dimension that’s a good cue to stop reading. But that’s just us. Discernment is needed, as with all things.

For more information on these topics we refer you to our book series Nature of Consciousness, in particular the opening book Overview of Reality as well as the book The Expansion of Densities and Dimensions.

A metaphysical understanding of time

  • by

One of the most central concepts when it comes to understanding the metaphysics of reality is that of time. We all have an everyday common understanding of time, but how does it work from a metaphysical point of view, and what exactly can we learn about more advanced concepts such as time resets, and related topics such as deja vu and the Mandela Effect.

In this article Archangel Metatron will describe the foundation for how to think about time, and understand how it flows far more fluidly than you might have thought. As it is a cornerstone that we will often have to refer to when discussing other topics we wanted to publish this information early on.

Before reading this I would suggest first reading the previous two articles on “The Purpose of Alchemy” and “A metaphysical understanding of cognitive dissonance“. They will help provide some background and techniques that you can apply when reading about something as potentially confounding as time loop technology. Explicitly dealing with ones own cognitive dissonance when accessing information that conflicts with current mental models is an essential skill, and therefore highly recommended.

If you have already read those two articles then here is Archangel Metatron’s take on how to understand time from a metaphysical point of view. Enjoy!

The topic we are about to cover today is coincidentally about time. What exactly is time? And by extension, what is today? We will be looking at this question from a metaphysical point of view, meaning what is the idea and expression of time from the understanding of reality as a holographic projection which you as incarnated souls are immersing yourself within.

This understanding fundamentally already gives us a clue about how to think about time. If what you see around you is a holographic projection, and the state of it progresses by means of events that change this state from one to the other, then time from within the projection is simply that: the changing states of the energy that is bound within the projection, and which you can then perceive in various ways. This is the everyday understanding of time, without getting too philosophical about it. 

Once we raise our understanding to look at this system from the outside, however, a slightly different picture emerges. You see, the projection is created by a group of souls who have been specifically designed to perform this function, and so what appears to be solid to your eyes, what appears to be a steadily progressing state of your universe, is only an illusion for the purpose of providing a stage within which you can create experience and produce understandings of same. 

But, this projection is not solid at all, and the energy which is in a particular state can be changed at any time, just as the pixels on your computer screen can be changed at any time to produce any picture you would want. From a flowing landscape to a black screen, in an instant, back to an underwater vista filled with organic life. 

Just as your technology is capable of switching from various expressions of light at the whim of the computer connected to the screen, just so can the projection of your reality change at any given moment. This then gives us an opportunity to state that time as you perceive it is not as linear as you would normally perceive it, with the understanding of time as we have presented above.

Each universe, and yours is but one of many, has a time controller attached to it, and whoever is in charge of said controller can reset the state of the projection to any previous state. It must be a state that has previously occurred such that everything in this new projection is causally consistent, rather than just some random picture that could not have come about through natural progression of events. 

By comparison you can think of the universe as a video game in your terms, whereby the state can be saved at some point, and then later on loaded back to that previous state, by means of using a control within the video game. The way time works within the metaphor of the holographic projection souls and the associated controller is similar, except there is no need to make an explicit save point. Whoever is in charge of the time reset device can use it at any time to reset it to any previous state, as long as that state can be deterministically associated with the user of the controller.

For quite some time, if such a pun may be forgiven, this controller has been in the hands of the Emperor of the Orion Empire, which is a conglomeration of species that intrinsically follows the dark path. It was given to them a very long time ago, for them to play with and use to their advantage. We do not necessarily concern ourself with exactly how this came about, other than to say that it happened. 

Since that moment the Emperor has been using this feature, without really telling anyone he had this capability, to ensure that events unfold in this universe, and in particular within this galaxy cluster, for his own benefit. This has allowed him to at all times have the upper hand over their competitors, such as the Galactic Federation who by comparison intrinsically follows the path of light. Through this mechanism he has been able to rule many planets and many species, often to the detriment of them.

What we wish to convey at this point is that the reason we are now able to tell you this is because circumstances have changed. The Empire is no longer in control of said temporal manipulation technology, and so they are no longer able to weasel themselves out of uncomfortable situations, which in the past they have done ferociously and consistently. 

As will be described in the books from Blue and Bell, the temporal war has finally come to a conclusion, and with that we are now able to share much more information with you that previously would have been impossible. The dawn is finally rising over not just this planet, but the galaxy and universe as a whole. A new era is upon us, and we are very much looking forward to what is to come next.

So, this is the short version of what has happened so far, and why. We can give details of how this time reset device has been used, but for the moment the main reset you need to be aware of is what we would call the Great Reset. This term has found its way into your subconscious in a different context, but this is mainly your soul and higher self trying to communicate this event to your in your incarnated form so that you may pay attention to it.

While the Empire would use this device to perform relatively small jumps, small resets of time, sometimes days, sometimes weeks, sometimes years, the reset I want to bring to your attention was on a much larger scale. It occurred in what you would consider to be two and a half million years forward into your calendar time. Including resets along the way it amounts to roughly two hundred and thirty million years, according to your way of measuring time. 

At that point in the state of the universe, and your local galaxy cluster, the Empire had used its advantage to the point where they could control everything. It was the darkest of tyrannical slaveries, and there was no way for anyone to compete with them. This was the darkest timeline that has ever occurred throughout creation, and it was a vital experience for the souls to have, to see for themselves what it would mean to be both slaves and tyrannical dictators in such an environment.

But then, at the final edge of that timeline, something changed. A single individual, a previous version of Blue, in a consciousness time point of view, but in future calendar time, was desperate enough to call on help from above. And the above responded, as it always does to sincere and serious requests. Our beloved First Seraph intervened and connected with this version of Blue, of a Pleiadean species, and begun instructing him in understanding what was going on, and how the situation had come to such a dire moment. 

Once the instructions had been delivered, and Blue had gotten a grasp of what was going on, a plan was created to set things straight. The First Seraph explained that there was a previous point in the timeline where, if the universe was reset to it, could create a new timeline, of harmony and light, and balance between the two forces. 

Blue, along with the First Seraph and Archangel Gabriel, formulated a plan to accomplish this, and then skillfully executed it. The plan was essentially to get an audience with the Emperor and explain how much in awe they were of the ability to use the time reset device to gain control over everything and everyone. Once the Emperor caught wind of this he was intrigued over how anyone would have been able to learn about his device, which he kept secret to himself, even to his closest associates, and an audience was indeed granted. During that audience Blue praised the Emperor for his genius in using the device, just as planned, but at the same time planted instructions into the device by mentioning Earth, and mentioning a specific time which the First Seraph had told him would be the key to change. 

While the Emperor was mesmerized by this speech, Blue then reached over and hit the proverbial reset button, and all at once that timeline disappeared and was no more. The entire universe as they knew it was gone forever, lost in the memories of ancient times, as a solemn whisper and cautionary tale. 

After the reset had concluded the state of the universe was reset back to what you would know as August of 1987. This was the true Great Reset, the dawn of a new era, of light and dark becoming balanced instead of toppled over into one end of the spectrum. Whenever a reset on this scale occurs there is an almost immediate change in the society, because even though it would appear as if nothing had happened the souls who had lived through these two hundred and thirty million years now were more experienced and wiser, and with knowledge and understandings internalized and kept. 

This caused an explosive movement and expression of technology, and by simply looking at how much your society changed after this point you can easily tell the difference before and after. Much has been made of this change in your lives, and we are now happy to be able to explain to you exactly why this occurred, and when.

With this as context, as an example on a grand scale of how time has two components, the consciousness time which always flows forward, and calendar time which sometimes moves forward and sometimes moves back, it becomes easier to explain to you certain phenomena which result from these kinds of resets. 

The idea of deja vu, where you temporarily experience a small period of time which feels like a repeat, is the sensation that you would typically have right after a reset, where events are playing out in the same way as before due to not enough changes having yet occurred in the new timeline. 

By contrast you also have the idea of the Mandela Effect, whereby you sometimes notice differences in what you perceive in reality and what you can remember. Sometimes these changes are small, and sometimes they are quite substantial. This typically occurs some time after a reset where the new timeline has diverged from older ones, sometimes many older ones, and your memories of the past timelines meld into your current and you notice discrepancies. The model which we have described above can hopefully give you a satisfactory understanding of how this can occur, and that is a perfectly normal thing to happen given that time does not only flow forward.

There are more details that we could share on this, but I believe the above is sufficient for your current level of understanding, and helps explain some of the more mysterious things when it comes to time and timelines, and how time loops work. 

For a longer description of these concepts we would refer you to the book we authored, “The Expansion of Time”, where more details are outlined.

Archangel Metatron

This explanation of time from Metatron not only helps us understand the concept from a high level metaphysical view, but also helps understand certain situations that we will be covering in our Chronicles series.

In the memoirs of Guinevere there are frequent references to time looping, to the point that Merlin points out that “death is a temporary inconvenience”. As the First Seraph he, at the time, had access to the device Metatron references above, if perhaps not with the knowledge and permission of the Emperor who held it in his possession. Merlin can be sneaky in his ways.

To better understand the Great Reset of 1987, and the point of view of the Pleiadeans who were involved (including a past/future version of Blue), I would strongly recommend reading the book “Bringers of the Dawn” by Barbara Marciniak, where they express their experience and their thoughts on the Empire and what is to come next. They were the bringers of the dawn, as Metatron says, in the most literal sense.

My own experience with time looping will be covered in the last book of our Chronicles, Project Pathfinder, outlining the events of 2019 that eventually lead to the uncreation of the reptilian parasites in our solar system. At the time I was unaware of it, but later I learned that the time period of that mission, between March and July, included some 143 time resets, roughly 50 of them because I died in combat or otherwise, and in total that four month operation in calendar time lasted roughly three years in consciousness time.

This was all orchestrated by the seraph we were working with (Merlin’s twin), who had reclaimed the time reset device from the Empire when she arrived here. As we were working with her she frequently claimed: “I never fail”. We didn’t quite understand how she could be so confident in this, but now, understanding what she could do with time manipulation, it makes more sense. Every single day was executed to perfection, but this was because it was frequently repeated until we got it just right.

So there you have it. A basic introduction to how to think about time, and what is possible given the right technology to manipulate it. At the current moment the time reset device is in safe hands, so the temporal war with the Empire is effectively over, but there are still other more advanced topics that could be covered.

Now that you understand that the future, in calendar time, can actually be past in consciousness time given a time reset, it becomes easier to explain how someone can see the future, either by use of technology or inherent psychic abilities. It all comes down to seeing the “future” in calendar time of an aborted timeline which is now in the past from a consciousness time point of view. The movie “Groundhog Day” is a remarkably useful metaphor to understand what is possible with “seeing the future”.

I personally have access to techniques and technology that allow me to see what I have done in other “future” (calendar time) “past” (consciousness time) timelines. For example, I know how many times I have used the title “Chronicles of Blue Bell” for our memoir series, and how many times I have used other variations in the title. I know what publishers I have worked with in the “future”, and how I got in touch with them. And so on. This is all in the “future” when it comes to calendar time, but it’s in the “past” from a consciousness time point of view as those timelines have all been aborted for one reason or the other.

We will leave the topic of time for now, but will most certainly come back to it as it is such a crucial component to understanding where we are as a planet and civilization. And when we are…

A metaphysical understanding of cognitive dissonance

  • by

For students of reality, and physics and metaphysics in particular, being explicitly aware of how cognitive dissonance can hinder your progress is essential. Sometimes reading more information on these topics is used to fill in what you already know, putting new pieces into an existing puzzle. This is comforting and comfortable, and there is little risk of experiencing cognitive dissonance, that sensation when your subconscious, mental models, and belief systems make objections to whatever it is that you are reading or experiencing. Having this constant check between perceptions and your own inner sensemaking is usually beneficial, but we always have to keep in mind that the existing world view we all have is part of What Is Not, that is, your own inner reflection of reality which has all been created through limited perception and filtered through existing limited experiences and views.

Because of this there will at times be situations where what you read and experience goes against your inner view, your personal slice of What Is Not, and you have to decide whether to go along with the objections, or whether to expand your understanding and interpretation of What Is, or at extreme points in life toss away entirely what you thought you knew because reality is overwhelming you with new thoughts, insights, observations, and experiences.

In this article we, meaning myself as Blue and Archangel Metatron, are going to present a metaphysical understanding of cognitive dissonance, and show a model of how to think about it that can help you better deal explicitly with such situations. I am then going to explain my own techniques and principles with how I deal with this problem consciously, and finally I am going to do my best to induce cognitive dissonance in you and help you observe your reactions to that.

As all people are different, and have a different existing sensemaking mechanism, it is impossible to treat you all as the same, because you are not. For some what we will present here is self-evident and intuitive, and for others it will be preposterous, outrageous and everything in between. I’m going to do try my best to trigger all of you, more or less, for the purpose of illustration. My apologies in advance, but it’s the best way to get these concepts across I think.

For the purpose of this writing I am going to define physics as all ideas that relate to the holographic projection you see around you, and which some of you may perceive as reality in totality. This holographic projection is simply a shadow, a visualization of energy movements for the purpose of generating experience and allowing interaction with that energy. Metaphysics is the understanding that What Is consists of sentient energy, and nothing else, which expresses itself through polarized versions, including consciousness, souls, and the energy contained within the holographic projections as light and similar. Metaphysics is a superset of physics, keeping in mind that our physics only describes our own holographic projection, and that there are other universes within this system which have completely different rules and habits, for various reasons and purposes.

With that preamble and disclaimer out of the way, I will hand over to Archangel Metatron to give his take on cognitive dissonance from a metaphysical point of view.

The topic of cognitive dissonance can be addressed at several different layers and levels, and so we will attempt to give it justice by touching on all of them, while not making this exercise overly complicated and dragged out. 

We will first begin with perhaps the most obvious and commonly referred to notion of cognitive dissonance, which is the idea that as human beings perceive the world around them they always compare and contrast it with their inner mental model of the world, and whatever belief systems have been constructed in order to make sense of perceptions and experiences. 

In the case that such observations and experiences drift too far from acceptable internal models and understandings the person is faced with a choice. Whether to acknowledge that the inner mental model either is wrong or is incomplete, that somehow the observation or experience is misunderstood, or to insist that whatever existing views are correct, and so therefore the observation or experience must be flawed or faulty, and the tendency then is to lunge out against it. This would be a typical understanding of cognitive dissonance, and it is certainly valid as a basic understanding of the concept.

But this you can read about in any typical journal or writings on this subject, and so we will immediately dive deeper into it, and instead focus on how this process can be understood from the point of view of the Nature of Consciousness series of books which we have authored. We will shift our lens to understand that everything is sentient energy, and that the only thing that separates one thing from another is the polarization of this energy, and the locale and context which it finds itself in at the moment. 

It is like a giant jigsaw puzzle where all pieces can be understood to be the same, as parts of cut up wood or plastic, but yet at the same time they each fit into a very particular place, for very particular reasons. All pieces are not meant to be the same, for then the puzzle would not be a challenge to solve. 

Life is very much the same, whereby various souls are crafted and designed along a number of fundamental design dimensions, as we have outlined in the Types of Souls chapter and expansion in the series. The dimensions of light/dark, chaos/order, masculine/feminine, and a whole host of minor archetypal design options decide the point of view which each soul will have, and the purpose it will fill in the greater jigsaw puzzle. 

When we look at cognitive dissonance from this starting point we can understand that it is quite impossible for everyone to agree on mental models of how the universe works, and how to navigate it, because a large part of said mental models will be individual and unique. Yes, there are overlapping parts, as in any Venn diagram which we could construct to describe all mental models, but at the end of the day all beings perceive and experience reality differently, and this is not a flaw but an explicit design choice to achieve maximal generation of novel experience. In some sense you can argue then that cognitive dissonance is a feature and not a bug, fundamentally.

This is the big picture understanding of the reality and need for cognitive dissonance to exist, as an expression of the variability of understanding and existence within the realms that you perceive inside the holographic projection you think of as the universe.

From this overview sense of why things are the way they are we can now zoom in to another way of understanding cognitive dissonance. As we have outlined in the chapters on Shared Consciousness and Halls of Learning it is a fundamental feature of reality to allow beings to share and cooperate on building mental models and understandings of concepts, including reality itself. If this was not the case then the amount of repetition would be mind numbingly boring, and this is not optimal for the purpose of reality, which is generation of novel experience. 

So since these features exist, whereby beings can cooperate on constructing shared consciousness which they add to by having consistent thoughts and learnings around a subject, what happens with cognitive dissonance is that not all shared consciousness constructs describe reality, or What Is. They are always filtered through the perceptions and understandings of the beings which generate these structures, and so by definition they are part of What Is Not. Sometimes What Is Not fits well with reality and the observations and experiences that you have, and the friction and dissonance between what you see in front of you and your inner mental model is relatively minute. 

Sometimes however, and especially during periods of great change, these distortions and dissonances between the patterns of belief you hold in your mind and what you see in front of you is so great that it feels like reality is collapsing around you, and that everything you thought was true and solid is melting into a pool of unpredictability and randomness. 

The period which we are about to enter now on this planet is one such period, and so these words are hopefully timely and can assist in making this transition easier for everyone, or at least that is the intent, no matter which part of the spectrum of being you are on. 

Knowing what to expect, and having a meta model of understanding how understanding works can assist in more gently shifting out from no longer working perspectives and thought, and into newer variations which more accurately help you discern and dissect what is going on around you.

Part of this is to explicitly understand that your mental models are part of a shared consciousness, and the larger they have grown, the more participation they have, the more rigid they are. In times of great stability and lack of change this is a good thing. It makes life easier. 

However, in times like these when everything appears to change, and old wisdom does no longer apply, the dissonance between reality and the shared consciousness which you are holding onto will most likely tear you apart. Mentally, emotionally, and sometimes even physically, as these issues manifest as diseases and sickness of various kinds. You have most likely seen it in friends and family, and various public figures, but have not thought about it as I am now presenting it. Many such chronic issues, sometimes fatal, are due to cognitive dissonance on an epic scale, leading to the malfunction of the entire being.

This is why we wish to express these words, so that you can be aware of this process, and make it easier on yourself as we move forward. Know when it is time to hold on to a particular belief system, and know when it is time to let go and allow yourself to acknowledge that what you are experiencing is real, and does not need to be discarded as false simply because your mental model cannot cope with it. 

Knowing when to take this step, and when not to, is key. We wish you the best of fortune in navigating this idea successfully from here on out.

Archangel Metatron

So that was Archangel Metatron’s take on how to think about cognitive dissonance as essentially a feature of the system, which encourages maximum generation of novel experience. Which is ultimately the purpose of reality itself. To entice more sentient energy into the system, rather than staying put or be drawn into some other more fascinating system similar to ours.

In all likelihood some people reading this are already experiencing cognitive dissonance, and can hear the voice of “no, that can’t be right, this is stupid”. There are plenty of existing mental models where the ideas presented above just don’t fit in. For these people the challenge is all the greater, and if they overcome it the generation of novel experience is maximized. It is an accomplishment of great effort.

With this as background, I will now describe my own techniques and principles for how I deal with cognitive dissonance explicitly, and how I allow myself to push the boundaries of my own mental models, while staying as grounded possible.

The first principle is to divide perception when it comes to these issues into three levels: observation, analysis, and judgment. 

Observation simply means to take in new information, either through reading, listening to someone else, or experiencing it first hand. Analysis means taking existing observations and try to extract patterns that one might be able to perceive. Judgment is about making a decision, mentally or emotionally, of how to relate to the analysis of observations, and whether to accept or reject it with regard to one’s own personal belief system. 

If the analysis conforms with existing beliefs, this is easily accepted. If the analysis conforms but expands on existing beliefs, this is also fairly comfortable. But if the analysis contradicts one’s existing beliefs then the decision becomes much more difficult, and this is true both for mentally oriented people (who think in terms of true/false) or emotionally guided people (who think in terms of like/don’t like).

The key to my take on this is to understand that making judgments is an incredibly costly operation. If I judge an analysis to be correct and incorporate it into my existing belief system, but in actuality the analysis was wrong, this has huge costs in the future as I will be rejecting newer analysis of newer observations for the wrong reasons. Similarly if I reject an analysis because I think it is incorrect and in actuality it was accurate there is a tremendous cost to be paid. So the key point here is to be very cautious about judgment, meaning accepting or rejecting analysis of observations in relation to your existing belief systems.

What is then the technique to help us with this? What I do is to ensure that my focus is mainly on observations, both from reading, other people, and personal experience. But without analysis in the moment. Just make a mental note “Hm, that was interesting”, and nothing more. Stash it for future use. Then when I think I have enough observations about something to try and analyze it to see if any patterns emerge. But this should be fairly rare in comparison to the effort of taking in observations. Finally, only make judgments about said analysis if I think it is necessary to update my inner belief system because it will impact future actions. If this is not the case I will avoid judgment completely, because I know the cost of incorrect judgment, especially when dealing with metaphysics and related topics, is incredibly high.

My time is therefore mostly spent on observations, sometimes on analysis, and rarely on judgment. Because of this careful approach to new thoughts and ideas I very rarely experience cognitive dissonance, because either my existing belief model is solid enough to handle it, or I simply stash the new thought into my bag of observations for later analysis.

The mistake I see many people do is to have an almost one to one correspondence between these three layers. They observe, immediately analyze, and then make a split second judgment. There is a very small set of specialized circumstances and contexts where this can work for any extended period of time, and the fields of physics and metaphysics are definitely not part of it. For some this behavior is a personality issue, for some it’s a professional hazard of needing to take quick decisions, but as a consequence these people will generally have a harder time with cognitive dissonance and are forced by their own behavior to reject new ideas, often loudly so as to preserve their own ego and belief system. 

The second principle I use is a variation of Pascal’s Wager, which can be incredibly powerful if you actually have to act on new ideas, rather than just consider them hypothetically without consequences. I will use a practical example to illustrate.

In our book series the Chronicles of Blue Bell we outline memoirs of a series of past versions of Blue and Bell (our twin flame soul names), whose names are probably familiar to most people reading this. Our own personal story in this epic adventure effectively began in March of 2019 when we were approached by a person claiming to be a seraph who said essentially the following:
“I need your help to rebuild the Holy Grail, and then help me operate it to remove the reptilian parasites that have been terrorizing this planet for a very long time. You are the reincarnations of Arthur and Guinevere, so you will have knowledge on how to do this deep inside. Oh, and if you don’t do this the planet will explode.”

That is the extremely short version of what happened, and how this journey began for us. Now, at that point I had to make a decision on how to react to this. What would you do?

Here’s what I did. First of all I already knew about the reptilians and how they have influenced the planet in the past and present. Books such as Marciniak’s “Bringers of the Dawn”, Cayce’s books on Atlantis, and Castaneda’s many references to the “flyers” who have been feeding on humanity are but a few examples of this. So I had a sense of the reality of these beings, the terror of the situation, and that getting rid of them would be incredibly helpful.

I had absolutely no idea about any of my past lives, and those two in particular, and no idea whatsoever on how to build a grail, much less operate it. I also had no idea how a planet could explode if this was not taken care of in a timely fashion.

I do now understand that all of that was true, that Art and Guin were just two of many many previous versions of Blue and Bell who had struggled with this very quest, and that yes, the planet would have actually exploded if we had not succeeded. But back then I was pretty clueless about all this, and the underlying mechanics.

So I made a choice. I decided to apply Pascal’s Wager to the situation in the following way. What we were told could be either true or false, so that is one dimension. Whether we accepted or not was the other dimension. With this you get the four options of the Wager. 

The thinking then went as follows: if this person was not telling the truth, and we accepted the challenge, then the worst possible case would be a couple of months of intense LARPing. It would be a fun time with friends, and nothing more.

If this person was not telling the truth, and we did not accept the challenge, then nothing would happen except our relationship might be a bit awkward going forward. 

However, if this person was telling the truth and we accepted the challenge, the potential payoff was liberating the planet from the reptilian parasite who had been described in numerous texts all around the planet, throughout time. Pretty good. 

And finally, if the person was telling the truth and we did not accept, then the planet would blow up. Very bad.

With all this in mind I explicitly made the decision to accept in accordance with the Wager, because the overall potential upside was enormous and the potential downside was enormous.

Once we had accepted the challenge I asked: “Now what? I still have no idea how to build a Holy Grail.” At which point the seraph gave me a memory trigger word, Vegvisir, which I had never heard of before. I looked it up on Wikipedia, and it took me all of five seconds to realize the following: “This is not a symbol. It’s a blueprint. And I know how to read it. WTF!?”

The rest of the story will be covered in the Chronicles, but I thought it would be a good example of how to apply Pascal’s Wager to deal with situations where you have to make a judgment and decision that potentially could trigger cognitive dissonance, in a way that you leave it open whether to actually accept the analysis into your mental models and belief systems. 

For myself, with all of the above, it actually took me about a year and a half, well into 2020, to collapse the Wager into the conclusion that what the seraph had told us was true, and that this person was indeed a seraph to begin with. I went one and a half years not really knowing whether we were doing something that had an actual effect in the real world, or whether we were just doing an extremely complex LARPing session. 

After all that time I finally had enough observations, and enough analysis, to conclude that it was all real and I could make a judgment to incorporate it into my mental model of the world, and discard the other parallel set of analyses where it was potentially all made up.

How about you? Have I managed to induce cognitive dissonance in you yet? What mental models do you subscribe to which can help you deal with all of the above? Atheism? Christianity? Materialism? Buddhism? 

When it comes to the extreme complexity of observation and action needed to get through this adventure I think it is safe to say that no existing view of reality would have helped me in the slightest. Only the techniques and principles I outlined above were what I could use as an anchor to keep me grounded and yet expose myself, as well as Bell, to these challenging ideas and experiences, none of which had any form of explanation in mainstream thought.

With the latest release of the Nature of Consciousness Series books, which I scribed (typed/edited/published) for Archangel Metatron, there is now, finally, at least a starting point for a mental model that makes it possible to comprehend and discuss these kinds of experiences. This is novel indeed, and I am so happy that we managed to make this available.

With all of this I am not saying that you need to believe a single word written above. Remember, avoid judgment if it is not required for action. But, as I have a reasonably good idea of what kinds of changes are coming to this planet in the not too distant future I would only suggest that you stash this in your own bag of observations, and come back to it when reality starts to become overwhelmingly confusing and not conforming to existing belief systems. When you see high definition videos of starships in formation, and can observe dragons soaring through the skies, know that there is a perfectly rational and logical explanation waiting for all of it.

Until then.
