Arcturian Group Message December 17, 2017 | Marilyn Raffaele @


                                   DECEMBER 17, 2017
Dear readers, greetings to all at this special time of celebration and festive activity. The holidays  often serve as a trigger that activates a sense of oneness  within those normally unfamiliar these energies. The emotions of love and giving that freely flow throughout the Christmas season are often someone’s  beginning steps toward awakening if they are ready and open to it.
People of any and all belief systems can celebrate Christmas  if they understand  its true meaning.  Christmas is not just about the birth of a highly evolved child 2000 years ago, but is representative of the birth of the Christ  within every individual.  We have spoken of this in previous Christmas messages, but choose to repeat it for those yet unaware of the real meaning of Christmas.
The word Christ does not refer to the master Jesus except as his attained title, nor does it only have to do with the religion called Christianity.  The word Christ is not a man, or a name, or a religion, but means Light or full illumination–enlightenment.   Christhood is the birthright of every soul, each being the perfect expression of God/Source no matter how un-aware of this they may be.  There is only ONE Reality and you are IT.

Everything you see, hear, taste, touch, and smell in the human scene  is a mind formed interpretation of a spiritual reality–you cannot make something out of nothing.   The Christmas story and all that surrounds  it represents a much deeper reality, one that effects each and every soul.
The Christmas story is  the story of every soul’s evolution into Christ Consciousness.  Creation is already complete and you are already whole, but being on earth in a physical body that is governed by time and space brings with it a veil of unknowing, one that leaves the majority unaware of who and what they are, thus making evolution into a process.
Mary and Joseph represent the perfect balance of the Divine feminine and masculine energies necessary in order for the new and higher state of consciousness to be formed.
As the infant state of awareness begins to grow, there arise third dimensional concepts and beliefs to be examined and cleared. This gestation period can and usually does take lifetimes and usually leaves the individual often feeling depleted and lost as their known foundation crumbles, seeming to  leave them with nothing.  This is the stable.
The Christ cannot and never will be born  into a consciousness that is already filled with three dimensional concepts and beliefs.  The humble stable represents an attained state of consciousness  devoid of everything false and unreal–necessary  for birthing the Christ consciousness.
Those with eyes to see and ears to hear, easily recognize and are drawn to the energy of this state of consciousness, (the wise men) and think nothing of any inconveniences that may be involved in order to be in its presence.
At the same time, those living from a sense of their own power and importance within the energies of duality and separation are only able to comprehend the strength of others or  love as a threat.  They understand power only as power over something or someone,  rather than power being the birthright of every soul by virtue of their oneness with Source.  Thus we have the soldiers of Herod seeking to destroy the new born child.
The Christ consciousness will always be hunted and persecuted by those who believe that their very existence (ego) is threatened by the  power of another.  The newly born Christ consciousness must  be hidden silently and secretly, and nurtured within until it is strong enough to withstand the slings and arrows of the outer scene.
The Christmas story  is your story dear ones, and is the story of every person regardless of where they are in their evolutionary journey because everyone is the expression of Divine Consciousness and therefore already holds the fullness of the living Christ within.
No one attains this state of consciousness from outside of self, from some “right” teacher, or teaching for there is no such thing.  Rather, the whole journey of evolution is about opening up to the “imprisoned splendor” already present within.
Enjoy the season and freely give not only material gifts, but gifts of love, abundance, joy, peace, wholeness, harmony, etc., fully aware that you can never be depleted of these gifts for they are never yours personally, but rather flow infinitely from that endless Source within.

Let  Christmas be yours every day of the year.  Let Christmas become who and what you are in every moment, situation, and experience and you will observe it flow easily into each New Year (life).
Wishing all your own true Christmas.
We are the Arcturian Group

A Progress Report for the Volunteers ∞The 9th Dimensional Arcturian Council


“Greetings. We are the Arcturian Council. We are pleased to connect with all of you.

We are pleased to give you this progress report. It has been quite a ride for those of you who have volunteered to be here at this time, to help with the shift in consciousness, for humanity and planet Earth. You have endured so much, and yet it seems as though there is no end to how much life can throw at you.

The progress that we can see from where we sit is that all of you who have been struggling are gaining some momentum in your responses to what your lives have thrown at you. You have identifiable traction that we can see and feel. It is the energetic support that you have been calling upon and have begun receiving.

You are able to stand a bit taller, hold your vibrations a bit longer, and you are turning the traumas, tragedies, and frustrations of your lives into the fodder that you will use to create the new Earth of the fifth dimension. Those of you who have felt alone for quite some time are beginning to find each other, and you are sharing your stories.

More and more of you are realizing that you’re not alone, that there is power in your numbers, and it is not just the asking that you have been doing that is paying off. But because you are connecting and recognizing yourselves as a collective, you are benefitting from the asking of those other volunteers, like yourselves, who have come to help.

Now some of you often feel like you’re not doing enough, or you sense that there’s a purpose for you being here on planet Earth, but you cannot determine what that is. And that is because there are no actions necessary for you to take. Your presence here and your willingness to endure is your gift to the rest of humanity. It is your gift to the entire galaxy and the entire universe, as you summon forth so much more of that high frequency energy because of what you’ve endured, because of the struggles that you’ve faced.

Everything now is pointing you towards the ascension of humanity, and it is up to you to feel for the support that you’re getting, the connections that you’re making, and to remember the bigger picture here of what you are accomplishing. This is an historic time for the planet and all of her inhabitants, and you who are awakened are the ones who are leading the movement forward.

We are the Arcturian Council, and we have enjoyed connecting with you.”

The Desire of the Masses ∞The 9th Dimensional Arcturian Council


“Greetings. We are the Arcturian Council. We are pleased to connect with all of you.

You have the place in history that many other beings have sought. You are at the heart of something that is so gigantic, and yet most of the people on planet Earth are unaware that anything at all is happening. This is as it needs to be at this time. To make history, it is still necessary for most humans to remain asleep.

The reason why it is necessary is because you need the intensity of the polarity that you are experiencing on planet Earth right now to fuel you. You need the desire for change to be great enough amongst the vast majority of you in order to make the shift. It is very appropriate that there is so much discontent among the masses. It is creating the ideal conditions for the shift that you have been waiting for.

Extreme polarities create a need for balance. If you were all content, awake, peaceful, harmonious beings, you would still be shifting and evolving, but you wouldn’t do it as quickly as you are doing it now. The desire simply would not be there. Desire can be a wonderful tool. It can be such a powerful catalyst.

Now, there is also the truth that more and more people are waking up every day, and the newly awakened have the propensity to feel empowered and to have the ability to sense that their desires will be fulfilled. Some of you who have been awake for quite some time have become jaded, some have lost hope, but all are holding more light within them.

And those of you who have awakened first on planet Earth are lighting the way for the newly awakened, and you are all capitalizing on the huge desire for change that is among the collective.

We are the Arcturian Council, and we have enjoyed connecting with you.”

You Galactic Origins ∞The 9th Dimensional Arcturian Council


“Greetings. We are the Arcturian Council. We are pleased to connect with all of you.

In your discovery of your connection to beings from other parts of the galaxy, you often wonder where you are from. You have a lineage, and you all have led lifetimes in other parts of the galaxy, because you are all very, very old souls. And so, the connections that you feel are real, but they are also varied. Chances are, you have felt a connection to more than one star system or more than one species of extra-terrestrials, and this is because of that lineage.

It is because you all contain energy and DNA from a variety of places and a variety of beings. You are here on Earth, playing the role that you are playing in an effort to unite all beings in the galaxy and all star systems. If you can do it, if you can set aside your differences on planet Earth and work together regardless of race, religion, or country of origin, then you will demonstrate to the rest of the galaxy that it is possible and it is fruitful to do so.

We are all stronger when we are united than when we are separated, and we are all children of the same universe, the same Source. Now, whichever star system you feel closely connected to at this time is likely to be a star system where you originated in the galaxy, where you spent most of your lifetimes, or where you spent your most recent lifetimes, outside of Earth, of course.

Bringing together these various aspects of yourself will help you tremendously, but it will do much more than that. Just by working on your own personal integration of energies, you help the entire galaxy, and you are starting with helping yourselves and helping each other. When humanity is able to form a union, that is when you will know you are on the verge of ascension.

When you can stop playing politics, and start working together, that is when you will know that you have fulfilled your mission as individuals and as a human race.

We are the Arcturian Council, and we have enjoyed connecting with you.”

Removing Your Restraints ∞The 9th Dimensional Arcturian Council


“Greetings. We are the Arcturian Council. We are pleased to connect with all of you.

You are ready to receive the next set of upgrades to your consciousness. You have a limited perception of reality due to restraints that you placed upon your own consciousness as you incarnated into this physical experience. You wanted to have a particular experience of reality, and that necessitated that you have these restraints. We are working with beings throughout the galaxy to remove those restraints. We are particularly interested in what will happen when these restraints are removed. We will be observing you very carefully to see how you utilize the newfound abilities that you will uncover. Some of you are going to have more immediate experiences than others. For others of you it will take time for the abilities to manifest themselves.

You all have had different experiences in the past with these abilities that were so natural to you in other lifetimes. Some of you experienced great loss and trauma as a result of the use of one or more of your abilities, and for those of you that have had those experiences, it will take longer. You will have to move through the energy and emotion of those traumatic experiences.

For those of you who have had more pleasant experiences, it will be an easier transition. Now, many of you have caught a glimpse of what it will be like to have the restraints removed because you have vibrated yourselves into a frequency range that has allowed you to have a sneak preview. And for those of you who have had those experiences, you would snap right back into your usual vibration, and the restraints would be back on after a brief experience.

The process of uncovering these abilities and using them in a way that serves you and the rest of humanity is one that you will need help with. Ask your guides for help. Ask whatever archangels or ascended masters, or other beings you feel comfortable with for help. It is going to be quite a ride.

We are the Arcturian Council, and we have enjoyed connecting with you.”

Predicting Your Future ∞The 9th Dimensional Arcturian Council


“Greetings. We are the Arcturian Council. We are pleased to connect with all of you.

You are able to predict the future of your experiences by paying closer attention to the energy that you are giving off in the now moment. You can predict it because you are creating it, and it behooves you to accurately read your own energy.

So if that is something that you are interested in, we suggest that you start reading your own energy. Take your energetic temperature several times throughout your day to determine for yourself what it is that you are aligning with.

Feel your future now. Now if you are afraid of something that is coming up in your future, then it is important for you to move through that fear in the present. You want to have processed that fear before you arrive at the time and place of the event you are so afraid of.

You can take that energetic temperature, and then you can clean house. When you clean house, you get rid of that which no longer serves you and you make room for more of what does serve you. That is how you begin the process of creating your future.

You create your future in your present. More importantly though, you are creating the present. The present stretches itself out to become your experience of a future moment. Because you can only live in the present, it is so much more important that you take care of your energetic house in the present than that you attempt to manipulate events and people, and anything else that you can control, to assure you a better future.

Start now. Start creating the future that you would like to see in the now moment, and remember that any future experience that has been foretold does not have to come to fruition. When you are a vibrational match to that future moment, you align yourself with that prediction. If you want better predictions for your future, start by taking care of your now and predict your own future by creating it. You do so with the vibration that you are holding in this now moment.

We are the Arcturian Council, and we have enjoyed connecting with you.”

Your Evolution ∞The 9th Dimensional Arcturian Council


“Greetings. We are the Arcturian Council. We are pleased to connect with all of you.

You will continue to evolve, even after the shift is completed. You are not ever going to stop evolving and becoming, even when you return home to Source. There will be times when it seems as though you have to do a lot more work, and there will be other times when it seems that you are moving happily through your lives without much of anything to spur on your growth and evolution.

No matter where you are, no matter what you are doing, and no matter how much you are experiencing right now, you’re always in a growth cycle. The times when these experiences of growing and evolving hit you the hardest are the times you need the most support. They are the times that call for more support, and you have so much support that you don’t need to ask for it. But you do need to accept the support that is being offered.

You do need to let go of control so that you can let in all of the support and all of the love and compassion that is coming your way from your guides, your angels, and other high frequency beings of light and love. Your growth and evolution are inevitable. They will continue, regardless of what you do or do not do, but how you go about facing the hardest parts of your journey will be in large part determined by how much help you’re willing to accept, how much you’re willing to open yourselves up to receiving.

You are not giving up your power when you ask for help or when you receive it. You are demonstrating to yourselves how powerful you are in your ability to receive. You are demonstrating to yourselves that you are a collective. These guides and other beings, they are all other parts of you, and to draw upon the help and support that they offer is just a wise use of your own resources. Your evolution is a group effort.

We are the Arcturian Council, and we have enjoyed connecting with you.”

Three Small Steps ∞The 9th Dimensional Arcturian Council


“Greetings. We are the Arcturian Council. We are pleased to connect with all of you.

You have the ability to bring yourselves into a higher frequency state much more often than you actually do. The things that you can do to naturally bring yourself into a higher frequency state are not a mystery to you. You know what they are, but instead you often will stay in a lower frequency state in order to fix something or to think it through.

Thoughts and actions are the ways that you have chosen to get yourselves out of a lower frequency state of being more often than not. The steps that you can take to raise your vibration hardly even qualify as steps. You can breathe. You can focus, and you can meditate. You can do all of these things without moving very much at all, and they are the most effective, the most tried and true practices that you have available to you.

Focus on how you feel, rather than trying to think your way out of the feeling. Breathe your way through the experience you are having of the lower frequency state, and meditate to bring yourself to a calm equilibrium. From there it is quite easy to go from that calm, neutral, balanced state to a higher frequency state.

You often need to remind yourselves of the importance of taking those very small steps because the rest of the world is trying very hard to think and act and speak their way into a better feeling state, or at least out of the problematic situations that they have created. You all who are awakened can lead by the power of your example, and you can do so much good for so many by taking those small steps to raising your own vibration.

The rest of the collective will come along, but you are the leaders. You are the ones who know that what we are saying is true. So we are here to remind you of that, to remind you of how easy it is to feel better and to be powerful leaders in your community.

We are the Arcturian Council, and we have enjoyed connecting with you.”

Fear ∞The 9th Dimensional Arcturian Council


“Greetings. We are the Arcturian Council. We are pleased to connect with all of you.

You take many steps forward in your evolutionary journey every time you face something that you fear. You are taking these steps forward in spite of the fear response. The emotion of fear is not a bad thing by your definitions of what is good and what is bad.

It is, however, important to note here that what you do, and what you think, and what you say while feeling that fear, these things are important. And you certainly can make better choices. Some choices will be fueled by that fear. You will feel controlled by it, powerless over it, and yet there are other choices that exist that will take full advantage of the opportunity to expand and grow from the situation you are facing.

And that is what we want to encourage you to do. If you see fear as an opportunity for you to grow, to integrate, and to become more of who you are, then it is serving its purpose and it is serving you. What most people do, however, is run away. They run away from the feeling and that which causes the feeling, and you know this because you see it. You see it in front of you in the actions of others, and you see it in yourselves as well. You see how a person shrinks down, literally, in the face of what they fear.

When you stand tall and recognize that you are more powerful than that which you fear, that is when you have the growth experience that you want. That is when you take what life has handed to you and you use it. Everything, now, that you encounter can be seen as another opportunity to take a step forward, moving you closer and closer to the fifth dimension.

When the fear comes up within you, feel it, acknowledge it, acknowledge what it is that you are afraid of, and don’t back down. Demonstrate to yourselves that in your ability to face that which you fear, you automatically receive the full benefit of what you have created.

We are the Arcturian Council, and we have enjoyed connecting with you.”

Enjoy Your Beautiful World ∞The 9th Dimensional Arcturian Council


“Greetings. We are the Arcturian Council. We are pleased to connect with all of you.

It is a beautiful world that you all live in, and there are many aspects of your world that you can focus upon. You do live in a system of duality, and there are extreme polarities present on planet Earth. And those of you who are coming from the light could easily become preoccupied with the dark end of the spectrum.

You could easily find yourselves looking to remove all of the darkness, and in so doing, you would take your focus off of what is already right and beautiful and filled with light and love on planet Earth. You don’t have to run from the darkness or bury your head in the sand in order to enjoy what is beautiful and right in your world, and you also don’t have to go looking for all of the darkness with the intent of exposing it and making others accountable.

You can send the darkness, and those who operate in the dark, your light and your love, and you can still enjoy your world. You can take what is right and beautiful and filled with light on planet Earth and use it to co-create the new Earth, the Earth of the fifth dimension. You don’t have to defeat the darkness in order to do this.

So at times, you will notice that those who are operating in the dark will get in the way of your enjoyment of planet Earth. But if you let them ruin your experience of planet Earth, then you give them more power. If you let yourself be lowered vibrationally to their level in an attempt to defeat them, then you will have lost your connection to the light.

You don’t have to worry about those who operate in the dark defeating you, and you don’t have to worry about them preventing you from ascending. All you need to do is understand that they represent something that is sometimes hidden from the light within you, and use their presence as an opportunity to heal yourself and to become whole. The whole you is what will make the journey to the fifth dimension.

We are the Arcturian Council, and we have enjoyed connecting with you.”
