Trance-Scriptions: The collected Soul Group Messages sessions
Part II: The View from the Balcony
The ‘Higher Perspective’…
The ‘Bigger Picture’…
Joseph and his Soul Group have consistently sought to liberate us via their communications – to reconnect us with a spiritual way of thinking and being – to reintroduce harmony, peace and understanding-from-the-heart into our lives here.
That higher view… that clearer-and-further-ahead-seeing view from the balcony – as perhaps an appropriate analogy – was presented to us during every single trance session in order that we might address current conditions and attitudes on Earth from a higher vibrational viewpoint and adjust our approach to them accordingly.
Soul Group communications were never wasted; never trivial; never the pointless: ‘Hi! How are you all? Don’t worry – you don’t need to do a thing… Everything’s going to be all right.’ messages unfortunately sometimes attributed to channelled material. Instead, we were repeatedly encouraged to examine our views on life, the ways in which we relate to each other and to our world, and to remember – ‘re-member’ – re-connect with who and what we really are and to live joyously and nobly from that higher, Divine perspective as a result of doing so.
The following transcription is a perfect example of this – a highly relevant communication in light of current dominant attitudes and beliefs on Earth – shining, as it does, a spiritual spotlight onto and into some of humanity’s darker, more muddled and more divisive thoughts…
As usual, I drifted in and out of a trance state throughout this session, and those switch-points between clairvoyance and trance are indicated in the text. Also, and as with each of these text versions of filmed sessions originally presented on our YouTube channel, we are indebted to Jules Gadiot for his dedication and painstaking work in transcribing the material.
[Note: In offering this written version, I have occasionally transposed one or two words and taken out any repetition acceptable in speech but less so in a text. These slight and infrequent adjustments apart, the following is a faithful transcription of the original filmed session.]
Soul Group Messages – 2.
Spirit Communicators: ‘The African Gentleman’, ‘Joseph’, ‘The Big Indian’.
Michael (connecting initially via a clairvoyant link):
There has been a gentleman with me since this morning in a blue light. He is a black gentleman and he has a kind of necklace around his neck and shoulders. I would say he is from Africa. I would say he was part of a tribe, and he wants to talk about something that is relevant today but not in the way that it is being presented as ‘being relevant’ today. He is talking about diversity. He stands in front of me as an African gentleman, but then he becomes taller as a white gentleman in a brown robe; which looks… I don’t know… Egyptian. Then he turns into a lady with two babies. She is dark-haired and isn’t very tall. Then he turns into a ball of light, [so that] all I can see is the blue light he came in with.
The African Gentleman:
He says what he wants to do is to jog people out of their perception of what they are, because he has seen increasingly that people become locked into this vision of themselves as male; female; in their twenties; in their forties; of a certain colour; of a certain creed… and he says each of the images he has given us thus far is him. Because, in one of his lives on Earth – one life of many – he has been each of these people. So: he has been black. He has been white. He has been male. He has been female. He says he has been healthy in certain lives. He has been unhealthy in certain lives. But they are all him as a spirit. And he says ‘him’ is a misnomer. They are all an expression of the energy that he really is, and the energy itself is also an expression of him as essence. And that the ball of light he has shown me is also him, and is his choice of expression at times in the spiritual vibrations he now exists in.
Michael: So, he says… (switching to a trance link, with the African Gentleman taking over at this point): ‘Doesn’t that make a nonsense of attacking others? Doesn’t that make a nonsense of singling out others? And doesn’t it also make a nonsense of attacking people in a current frame and saying, “You are responsible for this in the past or that in the past.”? You don’t know who you have been! You don’t know whether you have been male or female in the past …whether you have been in charge of people or subservient to people. You don’t know whether you have been healthy. You don’t know whether you have been ill. You don’t know in what part of the globe you have lived. And those existences you might have had are only part of your infinite existence as the angelic being you really are. And you have, in the normal course of things, existences in other worlds as well, as part of your evolution as a spirit.
‘So, to shrink down that ‘glorious spread of energy’ that you really are into one form and say, “This is me and this is you and I oppose you because I don’t like this aspect of you or I don’t like this aspect of myself,” is such a confinement of thinking, such a confinement of what you really are. In the spiritual realms we, as the energy that we are – or the expression of God that we are – we push against vibrations to manifest. So, we are not the actual vibrations, we are not the actual energy; we are the impulse, the essence behind the energy. And so, we push against those vibrations – and pushing against those vibrations gives us form. And we can choose which form we come through as.
‘I can select, from my past lives on Earth, which of those past lives I would like to ‘wear’ today – and I say ‘wear’ as with a suit of clothes. I can choose to be the person you saw when I first came through, or I can choose to be the lady that I [once] was. I can choose to be the gentleman I was in the Egyptian area. It is down to me, but it is simply an expression. It is simply my energies pushing through, via memory, against the energies that are around me to form an image that others can relate to for a time. And if I want to change that image it is as simple as changing a shirt or a hat. I am not those images. I was those images in order to learn, but that’s all. And I can select them from this ‘wardrobe’, this spiritual wardrobe I have, to appear to others as I wish to appear to others, as I have appeared to you today.
‘Personality is a small thing. Earthly perception is a small thing until you enlarge it, until you tune into your core energy and allow that energy to transform and expand your consciousness, to reconnect it to spiritual consciousness, to God consciousness, to angelic consciousness. You have opportunities to do that every day; you have opportunities to link into your true self. And bearing in mind what I have said about the confinement of personality – the confinement of associating yourself with one form only and reacting to others from that point of view – doesn’t it sound freeing to be able to expand your view of how things are? Doesn’t it sound freeing to be able to relate to people as the energy – as the core energy – that they are, rather than as the ‘suit of clothes’ that you see in front of you and react to?
‘This is a time for connection to your spiritual self.
‘If I sound stern, it is because I am! It is because I look at what is happening on the Earth at the moment and it needs changing. It needs sorting out. It needs transforming. And the only way you can do that is by gaining an advanced and elevated perspective. But to gain an elevated perspective, you don’t go to anyone else. You don’t go to a town hall and say, ‘Please, Mr. Official, can you give me an elevated perspective?’ That elevated perspective comes from within you. It is yours by birthright. And by ‘birthright’ I don’t mean the point at which your current form was given shape on Earth. I mean by birthright from the Godhead. Expulsion, if you like… ‘expulsion’ is the wrong word… expansion from the Godhead, as a facet from the Godhead. It is yours by right, by being part of God.
‘And I see the people of Earth, different countries I have lived in, ignoring that, turning away from that and entrenching themselves in the suit of clothes they are wearing. Every day they confine themselves to a greater extent within the suit of clothes they are wearing and identify only with that suit of clothes. Don’t you want more than that? Don’t you want to connect to something beautiful; to something permanent; to something that relieves you of your worries; to something that takes away all the stress, all the doubt; to something that gives you a path that is a steady path, that gives you the means to know exactly what to do in any situation: how to react, when not to react? You can only do this for yourself. I can’t do it for you. No one you turn to for guidance on Earth can do it for you. I don’t care whether they are a priest; whether they are a member of government; whether they are someone who says they are an expert. No one can do it for you, except you!
‘You need to open your hearts. You need to open your hearts now. What I mean by that is that you need to connect via your hearts to your greater wisdom, to your greater self, to your greater capability. You are running out of time to do this. If I could show you myself now as that ball of light – and that is only an expression of me; it is only a connection point between me and others – if I could show you what Michael is seeing, the beauty he is seeing in that light, you would feel that is something to be fought for, that is something to be attained, that is something that is “…essential for me! …I must have that!” Yes, you must have it, but you must work to have it. You have to realise you are more than you appear to be. Stop – please – confining yourself!
‘I am a member of Joseph’s soul group. Michael hasn’t seen me before but I am a member who has stepped to one side to allow Joseph to speak… because the message – the Joseph message – is so crucial at this time… I have stood on the sidelines, thinking, I wish I could give voice to what I want to say. And today I have that opportunity. So, I thank you for that opportunity but, please, hand on heart, please, listen to what I am saying. You are not what you appear to be… unless you choose to be what you appear to be – confined, restricted, shoehorned into something that doesn’t go anywhere!
‘You are on Earth to expand your vision, to expand your senses, to crisscross the world, each of you, with spiritual energies, with healing energies, with loving energies. You are not doing that. It is time to do it!’
Michael (via clairvoyance): I now have Joseph, who wishes to say something…
…He’s saying he wants to talk about the subject of expansion. He says, on the subject of expansion, which the other gentleman was talking about, the natural state of things, spiritually, is to expand. He says the universe – universes plural – exist to expand, to become more. That is why you see that outward movement of planets and galaxies and stars. The universe expands. The physical universe/universes expand as a result of the expansion of the individual angelic spirits within that universe. As they expand the universe expands. The universe is an expression without of what’s happening within. And, in the normal course of things on other planets, the angelic host visits those planets, in flesh, in substance, in a denser vibration, to move through the opportunities those planets offer to them, as a journey, so that they can expand.
Michael (reverting to trance, with Joseph taking over): ‘That is the purpose of all planets, anywhere in the universe. They are spheres – expressions – of angelic intent, that allow angelic spirits to move through them on a physical journey in order to learn and to expand. Otherwise, there is no purpose to the planets. And, once a planet has exhausted its possibilities for the angelic travellers [moving] through it, that planet is deconstructed; folded away. And another sphere is created by another area of the angelic host with different properties, with different opportunities, so that angelic travellers can move through that new sphere of experience and enhance the whole; expand the whole.
‘And this is done in a linked way: the angelic hosts, the angelic travellers, do not travel in isolation …in that their experience is taken back to the rest of the angelic host and permeates the entire physical universe, which evolves.
‘Why am I telling you this? Because on Earth at the moment you are not expanding. You are digging a hole, hiding in it, covering it up above your heads and sitting there, not expanding. Every day you are here is an opportunity… a blessed, God-given opportunity to become more than you were yesterday; to realise things about yourself; to realise things about others; to realise things about the planet, and to contribute to the planet, to contribute to each other, and to contribute to the universe. This isn’t happening.
‘Now, if you have read my book the Fall, you know why it is not happening. Read it – please – read it at this time because it is crucial that you understand what is happening.
‘Instead of contributing to the universe, you are folding yourselves in. Consider that. Consider that for yourselves at this time, and consider that for your children – the future generation. If you fold this planet in on itself, if you fold your life’s mission – which is to expand and become more – in on itself, why are you here? You are not fulfilling the purpose for which this sphere was created and for which you chose to come here. So, if there’s no reason for you being here… logically, why would you still be here? And that is the dilemma we in the Soul Group see around you at the moment. Unknowingly …and we don’t criticise, we point out… unknowingly, you are folding in on yourself an experience that should be expansive. You are shutting down your opportunities to grow. You are shutting down your connection to your true self, to who you really are, to the God that is within you and to the expression of creation around you.
‘This is a pivotal moment; a pivotal moment.
‘If you choose to be what you are from now on, everything that seems to be wrong on Earth at the moment will put itself right. If you choose to encapsulate yourself in what, if you would go within, you will find is wrong, then the road that leads through the Earth as a journey, as an experience, will be closed off. Only you can decide, each of you, whether that is what you want. If it isn’t, then simply celebrate your life. Celebrate the fact that you are a spirit. Celebrate that you are here to be loving, to be kind, to be gentle, to be caring, to be interlinked, to be a part of each other, to live in joy and in purpose. If you don’t want these things, then the Earth becomes, from your point of view, a toy that you have been given …perhaps ‘toy’ is the wrong word… a tool that you have been given to enhance yourself with that is no longer needed, that has been thrown out of the nursery, that has no purpose for the children who should be playing in it and with it in the right way.
‘You are running out of time.I expressed this in the books I delivered through the Band of Light.
‘You are running out of time.
‘I am showing Michael an hourglass and the sand is almost all at the bottom. Do we turn it round? Do we turn it round?! If you want it to turn round …embrace life, embrace spirituality, seek the higher vibrations through the way that you live and the way that you connect to people and the way that you connect to the Earth. If you don’t, the sand will run out.’
Michael (returning to a clairvoyant link): There is a spirit we call ‘the Big Indian’- a nickname we have for him. We don’t know his real name. He is a sweet, sweet man; a very tall man who has spent, as we measure time, a great deal of time helping people make the transition from this world to higher vibrations. And for many years he was in charge of a construct called ‘the boat’. Now the boat is something that has been fabricated, so that people who need an image in order to get from this vibration to higher vibrations are presented with this image of a boat that takes them across from this ‘shore’, once they have passed on, ‘died’ (to this world), to a higher ‘shore’. There is a transition to higher vibrations and the Big Indian was in charge of this, as we would measure time, for around two hundred years. He is with me – I am attempting to tune into what he is saying.
Michael (now via a trance link):
The Big Indian:
‘It was very emotional to see the peace that would descend on people as they were on the boat, as they were making the transition, as they could see the higher vibrational shore, which appeared as a shore in front of them, in front of the boat… to see the peace that descended on them. They would come onto the boat clutching their stomachs because they’d had stomach problems; or holding their heads because they’d been in an accident; or looking around nervously because they, in the middle of the night, suddenly found themselves on a boat rather than being at home in bed. But, as they approached that higher shore, peace descended on them. And for me it was like watching a ‘memory’ dawn on them. Because, with each person, the memory dawned on them of who they were and where they were, and the confinement of their earthly life fell away, and the confinement of the circumstances that had been around them as they passed over fell away. And, without exception, every face suddenly had a smile on it, and the vibration changed on the boat from one of confusion and fear and trepidation to one of peace, warmth, acceptance, love and recognition of what was happening.
‘It has become more difficult. I don’t work on the boat any longer. I work with Michael and the Band of Light in the work they are doing. I chose to do this. But every so often I look at the boat and see what is happening. What I see is greater difficulty in getting people to that point of peace; greater difficulty in convincing them that they are fine, that they are going somewhere wonderful. Such fear we have to deal with at the moment …such fear… and that fear is destructive. It takes longer to get them to that state of peace. It is distressing for us. We stand on the boat – my friends stand on the boat – and we talk to people and we have this aura of strength and Light and purpose and confidence that we give to people. But inside we are upset …upset that they are suffering in this way …upset that it is taking longer for them to reconnect to their spiritual vibrations; and the reason it’s taking longer is because they are frightened and because fear has become a god on Earth at the moment.
‘Fear has become a god!
‘If you knew that you could not die, that you could not be harmed, that there was love waiting for you, reconnection with family waiting for you, that there were wonders waiting for you (beautiful worlds, beautiful states of being ahead of you), and that your time on Earth was simply part of a short journey and that the journey would end but you would not, would you live life differently? I think you would. I think with the peace in your heart people discover once they are on the boat – if you had that now – your view of life would change completely.
‘You do have it now.
‘We have to strip away from you the skins of fear that have been put around you. We have to get you back to that heavenly state, that heavenly consciousness. How do we do that? We do that by being around you. Just because Michael can see me doesn’t mean that I am not around other people, doesn’t mean that around each of you there aren’t concerned spirits who wish to… not console you… wish to elevate you in your outlook, wish to elevate you in the way that you approach your life. Reach out to them! You won’t see them …[although] some of you will see them – some of you will be psychic… you will sense them. You won’t see them but reach out to them through your heart …connect to them …ask them to help to uplift you …and seek to uplift yourself. There is nothing to be afraid of. If you are not going to die, what is there to be afraid of? If you are part of God, part of all Creation (for ever and ever and ever, amen), what are you afraid of, what is there to be afraid of? Step out of that shell of fear and continue life as it is supposed to be lived – joyously – knowing that whatever happens on a physical level is only temporary; whatever happens on a physical level cannot harm you; you cannot be harmed. You will say, “Yes, I can be hurt, I can get a pain in my foot, or somebody could slap me across the face.” It is an illusion. It is an illusion of vibration placed around you so that you can learn. But it doesn’t have to be an illusion of misery, of sorrow, of fear.
‘We are around you every day – all day, every day! We cannot be other than around you because you are part of us. The whole universe is around you and within you – the whole universe! Reach inwards and outwards to that love. Become peaceful. Give yourself some time off from being afraid, from being doubtful. Give yourself some time off every day and invite us to join you. When you do that, we can strengthen your vibration; we can uplift your vibration; we can allow you to see things and sense things you don’t normally see.
‘As my brother said [reference to Joseph], you don’t have all the time in the world, unfortunately. You do, if you access your higher vibrations, if you come out of the mould, the confinement you have put yourself in.But if you don’t, you don’t have all the time in the world. I don’t want to see you on the boat any time soon… I want you to enjoy your lives.
Michael (reverting to clairvoyance): He says that to each person that watches this video and acknowledges what he is saying, he is giving a beautiful white feather – about eighteen inches long. He says: ‘I have one for each person who wants one. He says he will put it inside your clothes and it will be with you always. And in the middle of the night, if you are feeling afraid, you can reach inwards and you can clutch that feather and he will help you. And if you are uncertain when you are going into unknown territoryhold that feather and he will help you. He says it is a symbol from him but it is a ‘real’ feather in that it is energy created by him and by members of the Soul Group as a token you can have with you – just as you have a wallet or a watch or a ring. He says, ‘Incorporate it into your daily dressing… you know: “I put the watch on. I put the ring on. Oh, I’ve got my feather, it’s in my pocket…” or wherever you choose it to be.
And in times when you are uncertain, when you are frightened, hold it, remember it. It is a connection between our vibration and your vibration and, via that feather, via that symbol, we can bring you upliftment and peace.’
Michael: Is that all? Is that everything? Just as I am closing…
…Joseph says he reminds people (as he said) that when they read the books (just as his brother, the Big Indian, has been talking about connection) he says: ‘We connect through the books as well; through those that look at the channel; listen to the chapters.’ Whenever those words he brought through are observed and considered, there is a connection. So, he thanks those who are giving out the Light as he has recommended and invited people to do in the books.
…He thanks those people who are giving out the Light.
‘Don’t give up. Don’t give up!
‘The Light is brighter now and brighter every day than it was the day before.
‘Keep sending out that Light on behalf of everyone.’
Michael (concluding): …And everyone’s gone… everyone’s gone home [smiling].
