A Master Approaches

You know when a Master approaches because you feel at ease, you feel lifted, expanded and as if an overwhelming sense of peace has just descended from the stars. I define a master as a being who has mastered a part of being human to an extent that suffering has been transformed into peace AND that being has shared this with others so they too can master being human.

There are ascended masters, spirit masters (those who have not incarnated on earth) and there are masters walking upon the earth. And, to the disbelief of many, there are masters of specific Universal intelligence, and not necessarily Earthly intelligence, that assist humans, beings many call aliens.

Then there is you. If you have spent one moment giving the message of your soul to others, whether in word, deed, or just with your presence, you have taken on a moment of mastery. (There are also many non-verbal masters on the Earth currently, taking on bodies that others consider handicapped, but they are far from handicapped. They are here for you.)

Masters do not take from others and do not impose their points of view. In contrast, they honor the path of others and are on a path themselves of becoming the embodiment of Love. This is a state where they are completely present in the moment, merging body and mind to Spirit.

Some masters sit in silence, making pleasure and pain equal. Once there, they feel the flow of spirit within the dance of life and they find peace. In their speech they may speak of suffering as being a part of the human existence. I will not do this because I have been to the other side and came back to write about it, to give this message as seen from Spirit. Suffering was not in the plan. Many of us first inhabited the Earth as Light Bodies and over time, took on the physical body as the primary vehicle. There is no suffering and no lack when in the Light Body and we did not have to hide it from our consciousness. We were designed to keep the Light Body as not only the forms of communication with Spirit, but also as our primary guidance system as we swam among others in this journey called life.

Suffering came when we denied our Light bodies, and from my perspective from ‘the other side’, it is utter disbelief that we chose to deny our true selves and FALL into an illusion that we are bodies struggling to survive.

In my blogs and in my books, I focus on messages from the masters that I met while on the other side and masters that have shown their faces to me while I sat in my body, such as Jesus, whom I spoke of in another blog.

The infinite amount of messages that they have directly given me or inspired within in me is my message to you, messages to assist you in re-calling your Light Body.


I was 27 years old and having a very difficult and tiring pregnancy with my soon-to-be daughter Cheyenne. I was feeling particularly sorry for myself one day while lying in bed with my 1-year old son, Dakota, who was scooting around on the bed.

My only desire was to get out of bed and do my ‘work’. Not only did I feel responsible for how many felt and I wanted to help them with energy healings, I definitely was financially strapped and needed the money.

So there I lay in bed crying and complaining that the Universe is not supporting me.

To my surprise a bum appeared at the end of my bed. He wore a tattered robe and a grungy beard, his face dirty. I yelled out with serious disappointment that I had now attracted a bum as a spirit guide!

If I hadn’t already felt bad enough for myself, my self-pity just increased ten fold. I had grown up with what I call ‘big energies’ from the spirit-side, with guides along my side that I consider masters. And now, there was this bum.

I cried harder. He responded, “Michelle, I am a carpenter.”

That meant nothing to me and I continued to cry. He stepped closer and repeated, with a gentle smile that he was a carpenter.

At that age, with a lifetime of disliking Christianity and seriously questioning if Jesus really existed, I was shocked to see who this Being was when he took his last step toward me and locked his beautiful eyes to mine.

His message to me was to never have self-pity and that my ‘illness’ was a reminder of humility. He said that one of the first steps in becoming a true healer was learning humility. And then he vanished.

It did not matter that I had never believed in him. It mattered that I loved and that is the field in which he exists, a field of overwhelming Grace. He does not see hate or anger or blame, he just moves toward love and grace, and assists in awakening those who have turned their consciousness away from this field.
