I AM THE WORD
I AM THE
A Guide to
the Consciousness of Man's Self in a Transitioning Time*
from a Channeled Text
want to talk about things. And we have chapters to write and we have issues to
be absorbed in a larger text, twelve, fifteen chapters, each one about Christ
and the mastery of that vibration in a being. Now we don't talk about personage
of Christ as we do the personage of Victoria or Paul or Stanley or Fred. That's
not really the issue here. The issue here is to discuss what it means to be
aligned to a Christ vibration in a body that walks around and encounters other
bodies in frequency.
Everything vibrates in a frequency. This much you both understand, and your
readers will understand as well. Frequency is frequency. It's the molecular
breakdown of the issue, as it were. Now Paul will back away whenever there is
talk of science because he is frightened of it. He is not a scholar. However,
we know what we talk about and when we say it's the basis, we simply mean that
when you vibrate at a frequency, that is the frequency that you are aligned to,
and when you are aligned to a frequency, that is what you call to you. That is
your experience of yourself and you're experienced by others in this way as
it's no big deal that you are in frequency. The question then becomes, what
frequencies are available to you, and what do they mean? What does it mean to
be in Christ at a certain frequency in tone, as it were? Paul is saying "tone,"
as in sound, and we will say yes, in an extended way, that is what we mean.
Because tone implies resonance, and when something resonates, something is in
alignment with itself and will call to it other tones, frequencies, expressions
of the Christ that are vibrating at a similar level.
the Christ frequency, as it is understood now, is a high one and it has been
misappropriated, entitled, by most people, who have assumed it to be a Christian
basis in religion, and a religion, unfortunately, that has received alignment to
the wrong-mindedness of men throughout time. And once you bypass the religion
and you understand that the Christ is a consciousness, is a frequency, is an
offering to man from the Creator to align to, then you begin to have a very
different experience of understanding who you are. There can be no Christ in
man without man's aligning to it. It is there as a silence until it is awakened,
and when it is awakened it has one duty, which is to seek itself in
one is without the Christ. It has not bypassed anyone. And there is, in form,
a way to access this frequency that will be understood as we continue to
transcribe our stories and our teachings to you both.
we do this with an intention, and the intention is that the recruitment to this
service becomes larger than two people discussing an issue with guides' service
in attendance. This becomes a larger issue in service because this is work
that is meant to be understood by others, and in the time that it takes for us
to be transcribing these notes and teachings and lessons we could be waking up a
lot of people. So we are assuming now that this will be a vehicle to serve the
awakening of others. We will assume this and we will work with you both to
align to the possibility that restructuring the self in alignment with the
Christ frequency is the work of the time, the work of the time, the work of the
we want to tell you some things before you go any further. This book will be
twelve to fifteen chapters long. It will have a basis of understanding that is
called something that will entitle each chapter. But that will not be the real
chapter. The real chapter, in a funny way, will be a microcosm of a larger
teaching. And once the small teaching is understood and inherited by the
consciousness of the reader, then the work will take off in the cosmos, as it
were. And the reader will begin to absorb structures beyond what has been read.
you can understand that this is a process that we are intending, and it's as if
many of the chapters are etched in light and will be read in the higher
frequencies once the key has been placed in the lock by the reader. That is
going to be the process here. So it's as if we were to tell you "My Weekend in
Alaska" is the title of a chapter when, in fact, you would gain an understanding
of all that is cold by reading that chapter without knowing that that is what
you are truly doing. You would be resonating at a certain level that would
allow the Dictaphone to continue beyond what's served on the physical page.
will tell you this: twelve to fifteen chapters, each chapter has a title, each
chapter is in service to a consciousness, to an awareness, to a vibration to
begin the alignment of the Christ in man in fruition.
this is no little deal. This is not A Course in Miracles. This is not
another book that has been written. This will be transcribed by us through
Paul. You will witness, you will question at times, and you will direct when
the Paul self pulls out because he thinks this is crazy or because he doesn't
want to know the answers because they challenge his own belief systems. So
there is going to be a requirement for neutrality for this process to take
hold. Other than that, it's really a question of meeting and transcribing and
owning the possibility that the work that we are bringing forth is, in many
ways, a vehicle for the manifestation of the Christ in man.
we talk about Christ, we will be clear now, we talk about Christ as a creation
of the God Self inhabiting man in its fullness. We do not say, "You are Jesus"
any more than we say you are a thing, or a that, or a light thing that can be
called Jesus. Jesus is a personage of the Christ, a manifestation of the Christ
in fullness, and there are others as well who have ascended to this level of
understanding and frequency. And in part, their wisdom will be informing the
text that we work with through Paul and through this process of understanding.
Tonight, you are both going to have an assignment in order to realize the book
fully. And that is to imagine the book as sealed. A sealed book of promise
that has been waiting to be unfolded for many, many, many years. And the
unfoldment of the book will come in time. As each chapter is opened, the seal
is broken, and the wonders that have been held within will open to the public
who reads and wonders and accepts this vibration as its truth. Now this is the
work of this night. Because once you understand that the book is already
written and, to a large extent, this is a process of transcription and awareness
and receptivity to the information held therein, it becomes a spontaneous act of
being present for a miracle, as it were. Yes, indeed, we will say this: you can
be present for a miracle.
to wonder what a miracle is is to ask yourself: What am I? What is the one
before me? What is the sky? What is love? What is a tree? What is my name?
You are a miracle. All these things are miracles. And what we are consigning
to you is a miracle of understanding that will bring forth, in its way, the
triumphant Christed Self into manifestation.
we do not say this lightly. This is not a tour book. This is not a how-to
book. This is not a book that will solve your problems or take away the
responsibility for your lives. That is very significant. Because when people
buy books that are going to save them, they are paying someone to do the work
for them, and, in fact, that is always a false truth, because the work can only
be done by the self and the self's own worth is received in consciousness. So
when the self does not believe it can be fixed, healed, responded to as Christ,
you know well that that cannot be undertaken.
in fact, those blemishes that stand in the way of the perfection of this
realization can be cleared. And once they are cleared, the true face shines
forth in beauty and wonder. And that will be the effect for those who engage in
the process that we engage them in.
Transitioning now. And this is a transitioning time. And the time that you are
standing in must first be understood in order for you to recognize the
achievement of the Christ as it's stood until this time.
manifestation of Christ in man has remained primarily an ideal for the last two
thousand years. That has been the ideal that has not made itself fully known,
fully realized, fully understood, although the teachings that would have enabled
this to be so are present in every religion on this planet. However, the
withstanding of that, the understanding that this is a time when these changes
are remarkably apparent will become so understood by you that this will be a
transition in your understanding of who and what you are, and who and what you
have always been.
time that you are standing in is a time of great change. And the change that we
speak of is a cosmic one. And it is an interfacing with the consciousness of
man and man's creations in a grand scale.
out, Paul. We need to give them more information and Paul is actually obscuring
because he's trying to listen to what's being said as it's being said, and
that's not an effective way to hear. The easiest way for Paul to do this is to
step out of the picture as if he's in the bathroom outside the backyard and say,
"Okay, there's stuff going on in the house and I trust what's going on in the
house is safe so I might as well read a magazine."
we'll say it this way: There is nothing going on in this body, Paul, that you
don't have to fear being taken over by. There is nothing terrible happening.
You can align to us and we will deliver the speech to the extent that you will
step out. So this isn't a chapter, this is a discussion.
first tape is for the book. This is not. This is preparation, and an
understanding of how the work needs to happen. Now trials come to every man
when he decides, "I am going to go forward and claim my consciousness as the
Christ." Everybody you know of who has taken this one has had a hard time. So
why, Paul, would you assume that your path, or the path of those that you teach,
would be a whole lot different? It's not an easy path, and it's only not easy
because it moves things. And when you unleash a cave by rolling away the
boulder that has blocked its entrance, its face, and everything that had been
sealed within comes out screaming as it's exposed to the light, that is the
process you have undertaken. And those you work with, like it or not, have a
it doesn't need to be hard. It doesn't need to be hard at all. It simply needs
to be, and all that is hard is your attachment to the regulations you have
placed on the self for the self to be and see and experience the world in a
certain way. That's all there is to it.
you don't believe that the trees will fall, when the trees fall you will be
astonished. If you believe that trees fall all the time in the forest, you are
not surprised at all when you find yourself stepping over tree trunks on the
path in the woods. That's the way this is.
you believe that the structures that you have created to give yourself worth, or
prestige, or a feeling of safety, or a belief in your abilities to do certain
things, if you believe that these are all permanent structures, you will be
shocked when suddenly you are not able to write anymore, or when suddenly you
have a new desire, or suddenly the prestige that you require to give you praise
in an external way is vanished. Then what do you have?
if you know that trees fall all the time in the woods, you go, "Okay, here we
go, I'm continuing on my path and I may have a tree to climb over but that's all
there is to it." If you believe that trees never fall, and you are struck by a
tree, you're gonna have a harder time with it, because your world will be
this country, 9/11 did something very similar to the consciousness of this
country. It realigned itself first to victimhood and then to outrage and then
to a belief in retribution, and those were all required by the collective
consciousness of the thinking and the experience of a country who did not
believe that such a thing could happen to them.
there had been another consciousness, the responses would have been fairly
different, and the premonition of change, and the change in the status of this
country, would have been worked with in a very different way. But because the
country was in frightened action and then in revenge, which is always
unconscious, because one cannot be truly conscious and be in revenge, you will
understand that the course that was acted on, was approved of, by the mindset of
a country that did not believe that a tree could fall in the woods.
are trees falling all over the place right now, and people are climbing, and
they're building tree houses and they're building tunnels. And people are
hiding their money, and they're doing whatever they need to to prepare for
difficulty, which, as you know, creates difficulty. You do not prepare for a
divorce without planning a divorce, and you do not prepare for difficulty
without planning for difficulty. That is different from saying, "I am going to
save some money, I am not going to give up something that I need right now that
gives me a feeling of safety." However, if you hold onto something for the
safety that is going against the soul's requirements, you will find that there
is a difficulty ahead. Because at this time on the planet's juncture, the
realization of the soul's requirements must be put first. Period. It's going
to happen anyway. All that will stand in the way is resistance.
we will tell you one thing. The country's role at this time is not to be the
leader. It is to be the model of great transition. And how this country
observes itself in transition will become the marker for the survival of this
country in the passing years. This country has an opportunity now to relinquish
power in a vibrational way that has been assertive and active, engaged "against"
as opposed to "for." And once that is understood, that there can be a kindness
and a consciousness and a wisdom, many, many, many things can change here.
However, if you revert to the patterning of the past, which is the consciousness
of the country as it still stands, of entitlement and outrage and
self-congratulatory-ness for its own past conquerings, you will find that the
country has a difficult, difficult time ahead of it.
this have to do with the Christ? Yes, yes, yes. Of course it does. We speak
of the Christ in terms of consciousness, and the vibration of the Christ, which
would bring about the change in consciousness we speak of to this country and to
this plane of existence in a whole way, is part of the transition that we
discuss with you today.
taking Paul farther out, so that we can channel directly. This will be an
opportunity for him to stay in the background and look at a picture hanging on
the wall so that we can get the words out without intrusiveness and questions.
He has many questions too.
is hanging on the wall and Paul wonders what the big deal was. It wasn't a
great picture, was it? However, what it was, quite simply, was an identity
framed in consciousness, out-pictured and created and then witnessed by others,
and that is everything in your life that you understand, experience, and see.
So it is as worthy an issue, it is as worthy a painting, as anything else he
might stare at while we have a discussion with the tape recorder and Victoria.
speak of the country and we speak of the Christ and we speak of the
manifestation of the Christ in consciousness as we work forward to bring forth
the required changes. We will speak of the book again and what the book needs
a passage book. It is a book that you read, experience, and there is a passage
entitled to its purchase. Which means, when you start the book here and you
complete the book there, there is a different place, there is a different
frequency, there is a different knowing on the other side. The book itself is
the passage. If you think of the book as a steamship crossing a great ocean
from one continent to the next and when you get off the boat you are on the new
continent, that will be the instructions held therein. And by instructions we
don't just mean what one needs to do to receive the Christ consciousness, but
also the work that is done silently, through impressions onto the energy fields
of the readers by the guides that are working with Paul and working with this on
a global level to bring about this shift.
is doing service in this way, regardless of what he thinks. And there are many
others on the planet right now that are doing similar service, because this has
you can imagine that these are temples being built, these are pyramids being
built, and the high frequency at the top of the pyramids links to create a grid,
a matrix of consciousness that will become apparent, an energetic system, a
Christ vibration that will then be allowed to work through and inhabit and
recreate itself through the personages, energy systems, beings of those who
would welcome and embrace it, you will understand the mysticism and the
practicality of this endeavor. So this will be one pyramid and there are many,
many, many being built in the conscious intentions of the seekers on this plane
at this time.
Paul has questions, and the questions are as such: "Will I be myself at the end
of this journey?" "Will I still have my job?" "Will I still know what I want?"
We have answered these in direct channelings and they will be answered again as
part of the chapters of the book, but only in a way that will frame this
experience for the new intelligence that is approaching this material for the
Paul is going to be channeling daily for the next two weeks, whether you can be
present or not. We are going to ask that someone be present to take the notes
and to hear the voice as the chapters unfold. This is not like a book that is
written over months and years. This is a book that is dictated, and it is in
passage, so Paul will have to clear the decks a little bit in order to make this
possible. He worries a lot that there will be nothing to say, that there is no
chapter. It is easier to say, "There will be a chapter," than to fill one up.
But if Paul listens carefully, he will realize that we have just written a
prologue today, and an introduction that will suffice, with several edits, to
stand as a whole chapter.
the passage that we speak of, of this book, of this transition that the reader
will attend to, is a transition of knowing. And what people know when they
finish the book will be different than what they know when they pick it off the
shelf. However, we do not speak of knowing on an informational level, we speak
of knowing in truth. "I know what I know what I know." We do not brainwash, we
do not infiltrate, we create the opening for their own knowing to be made full
within them. How would it feel, finally, to know? "I know myself. I know my
worth. I know my love. I know my body. I know my path. And I know that I am
deeply loved by my Creator."
Paul does not know this. He defends it by saying it's process, and that in
time he will know if he's meant to know. But he has a huge investment still in
anchoring all the reasons why the Creator could not love him, and others as
well. "Because I am this, because I am that, because I don't do this, because I
do that." All of this is an excuse and a way for the ego to prevent the self
from releasing its power to the Creator. When you are in the Creator's love,
you are one with who you are in truth, and all of the things that embellish the
self, that keep the self separate through embellishment, which means, "I am
this, I am that," all of those false tokens one hangs on their shoulders as
reasons why they are separate from God's love, or other's love, or the self's
love, all of those things must be cleared.
you will do this, Paul, as others do it. But we will use you as an example
through the book as a way to see the self as healed. We will use Victoria to
the extent that she is present for these channelings and we will use
descriptions of others as well who you don't know or you do know, simply to say,
"an example of someone who does this that or the other thing that needs to
change in order to realize herself as the Christed Self she truly is."
other than that, you will be understanding things on a level that is global. It
is global, this work, but the global is realized through the individual and that
has always been the case. When there are enough people, frequency, at present,
vibrating at a certain level, the change will be significant and will be felt,
and will resound in a wonderful song.
thank you both this morning for your attentions to our thoughts and we will give
you the title of the book now, to the extent that Paul can stand away: I Am
the Word: A Guide to the Consciousness of Man's Self in a Transitioning Time.
I am Word through this intention to realize this book in its wholeness, in its
accuracy and in its wisdom. I am a clear channel for the transmissions that are
to come forth in wholeness. Word I am Word through this intention. Word I am
you both and goodnight.
