This week’s guidance from the Ascended Masters, Galactics, Earth Elementals, Faery Elders, Angels, and Archangels known as the Collective:
COR: My friends, What is the significance of places of worship burning down completely or in part, in different parts of the world?
Particularly, yesterday’s fire at the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris.
Millions of us wept as we saw that beautiful structure, which has such a strong presence and has stood for so long, being invaded by such a powerful destructive force.
Can you give us some clarity as to why there seems to be such an energy of tumult and sudden shifts in the world now? I’ve experienced it in my own life this past month, and so have many others.
Is this a great cleansing? A transmutation of some kind?
THE COLLECTIVE: Greetings, dear ones! We are happy to have this time to speak with you today.
We would say, that though there is, as we have said often, an element of chaos in creation, and you are most assuredly creating a new world, that several other factors are also involved here.
You have seen how some have noted that Notre Dame—Our Lady—is symbolic of the Divine Feminine, whether in form of the Mother of Yeshua or some other Divine goddess expression.
It is important to note that there are no holds now on how energy on the Earth expresses itself.
For a very long time, energy on your planet was held in certain patterns and waves.
People would find it difficult to say or do or believe things that were an individual expression, and that varied from what their social class, religion, gender, or culture had been taught to believe.
You have seen oppressive governments in some countries, where this is still attempted—a stranglehold on certain thoughts or behaviors.
Except that in the Earth eras we speak of, this influence was not obvious to the masses.
It was simply “in the air” to believe only certain things possible or true, due to the energetic matrix which people lived under and unknowingly followed.
These old oppressive energetic structures are no longer working so unfailingly now. In fact, they are failing colossally.
Human thought and emotion, and most importantly, inner wisdom and imagination, have broken out of the old system into an era when individual thought stands at least as strong as the socially trained, carefully programmed group belief.
And in many cases, it stretches well beyond what the group has been told to consider to be truth.
As human beings exercise this new freedom, they influence countless others across the world on the etheric plane.
None of this is accidental.
Humanity’s own intention has pulled this planet from a place in the cosmos where ignorance and slavery were the norm to a place of individualism, authenticity, and soul purpose—a multiplicity of beliefs expressing as Truth, and an expression of the honesty of the individual journey.
You are awakening, in other words!
You are no longer automatic puppets and slaves.
And though that is a relief to know in some ways, it ushers in a very great “shake up” on other levels.
When you see institutions burning that have long symbolized the comfort of certain traditions, understand that much of that comfort is an inadvertent addiction to the “cover” of the old structure.
Deep within the Love you experience for a particular sacred space, is the drive to know yourself, to know the Universe, in ways and at a depth you have never experienced while in a human body, or not experienced for millennia.
That intent to know and revere the inner sanctuary cannot be destroyed, unless you choose such.
In regards to Notre Dame—no one can harm your connection to Yeshua, to Mary Magdalene, to Mother Mary or the apostles, or the Archangels.
No one in that well-known story will turn from you or repudiate your desire to know them and to know yourself in the Light of their story, though the old rules of religion may instruct you otherwise at times.
Humankind is not only (mostly unconsciously) releasing its need for religion as a spiritual guide or resource.
Humanity is overcoming and exceeding the limits of religion.
It is breaking apart those strictures and boundaries that have not only kept your ideas and understanding small and confined (and often erroneous), but forbidden you to ask certain questions and hold certain thoughts or images as possibilities.
We understand that you are experiencing discomfort in many ways.
The old order is exerting whatever influences, pulling whatever levers of control it still possesses now, in an all-out effort to keep people’s vibrations low, their expectations small, their beliefs dim and grey.
You will not fall for this, though it may feel that way some days.
You have recently had a tax day in the United States—note how many now are realizing the extreme inequalities of that system, and are asking, essentially, why the king’s men must still be paid, in a country that was crafted to be a democracy.
To return to your question, fire is a fascinating element.
You have yourself witnessed its power to transmute and to clarify, in sweat lodge experiences, and in Nature.
The flames and heat intend not so much to harm as to promote a powerful energy that yes, transmutes in many ways, and also purifies and clears that which has decided to return to the air, to pure etheric form.
The timbers of that institution understood that—remember that there is life and consciousness in everything!—and willingly gave themselves up to what was intended to be an emotionally wrenching event, yet what will turn out to be a cleansing and clarifying one.
The medieval energies of that structure have been seeing the results of their era end, and move on.
Knowing it was time for them to do the same, they have released their Earth form, and also returned to the ethers.
It is time to release the energies of master and slave, of kings and lords and peasants, of the hierarchies that spelled misery for many millions for many centuries.
As you witness the result of powerful shifts in astrological placements, you are also witnessing what is being birthed on your planet as a result of these crucial moments, and humanity’s own decision to Ascend.
And so, we would say, do not fear these shifts and changes, however much of a shock they may be some days.
Though events such as these are being used as a lever to intimidate, lower vibration, or bring feelings of disempowerment, you have noted, as you saw groups of people singing outside the edifice while it burnt, that the opposite is true.
You are not merely, with this great shift in consciousness, overcoming the hierarchical tyranny of several Earth ages, dear ones, as great as that is.
You are writing the way forward to a whole new moment for this planet, in which your voices sing not the one note prewritten for you, but the many harmonic notes you decided independently, before incarnating, to add to the collective celebration.
This glorious combination of voices is now serving to break through the old paradigms of oppression, to bring you to new places of strength, grace, calm, and a centered sense of purpose.
It is aiding you in awakening, to Know and to Remember why you are here.
You will not celebrate every moment of this transition—there is much sadness in any form of letting go of the familiar, when that has been a comfort and a well-known pattern.
Yet in the name of your freedom and Ascension journey, you have decided on that very thing.
And all of us in the higher realms (and also here with you upon the Earth) rejoice to see your increasing forms of independence, your inner empowerment, and your outer.
And your increasing knowing that you are completely loved and believed in, and guided at every moment.
You have only to ask, to know that Wisdom as your own.
Namaste, dear ones! You are never alone.
You are all of you Rising now, to new and unseen heights.
