This came from Archangel Michael responding to questions from a conversation about darkness and contracts and as it relates to darkness in general and how people are affected by it. Here’s his message to me as well as the general public:
You have to understand your expertise. It isn’t easy for people to grasp or understand darkness. It is imperative they do if they want to rise above it. People are so limited by it, they don’t even realize it. There is not one person on the planet who exists today that isn’t subjected to darkness and its affects. Not one!
I trust you will take this warning. Many will rebuke your efforts to discuss it because of denial within themselves. Often people are subjected to it on a daily basis without realizing they are submitting to it daily by their choices. Because they don’t understand what it is and how it works, they are subjecting themselves to it and the manipulations by it. They don’t realize the influence or significance of it on their lives. But those who are brave enough to take it on and clear it up are to be applauded as they are setting themselves free of that dynamic, as well as others who have been negatively impacted by it or could in the future.
Darkness uses people all the time to undermine them. I can whisper in someone’s ears as much as they can. Think of it this way, “eat this cookie”; “don’t eat this cookie”.
“Sign this contract”; “don’t sign this contract”; “do this”; “don’t do this” – that push pull within the psyche is often influenced by either darkness within, or some darker energy outside or someone working through others in that manner who then speak those thoughts aloud influencing you or others in a way that is not for their highest good.
Allow me to elaborate further. Temptation of any kind. Someone trying to sway you to do something that is out of integrity. Knowing what your highest choice would be and succumbing to the lesser of the two options. All have influences of darkness within in ways that you may not realize.
Why do you ever do anything that is less than the highest good of you and all? Influences of darkness upon you or the situation.
People have succumbed to darkness for so long they don’t even realize they are doing it. Are you of the highest light, doing what is most purposeful in the moment? Are you manipulating out of fear? Are you not doing what you are supposed to at all times? Or, are you succumbing to the easy way out? Have you ever denied yourselves or others the truth of the matter?
Where are you kidding yourself or others? Are you always honest, doing what is purposeful, living in alignment with your highest self at all times? If not, there is usually darkness in the midst. If you have fear at all, darkness has had its hand in it.
Leave not out the greed and selfishness that exists. Have you ever suffered lack and limitation? If so, darkness has had its hand it in.
Have you suffered at all in any way? If so, darkness has had its hand it in.
Where do you draw the line regarding living in denial? Or, do you wish to be aware and rise above the temptations or afflictions of darkness, or those lower energies, because you are savvy. You, are of the light, I might add. But, can you see what you have been kept in the dark about far too long?
