By Ruth Virginia Barton, who edited together two works from GAoG, other spirit messengers specified below, because they were such natural partners in Joy!
The first part is an introduction from the Archangel Michael article, the second part is affirmations I edited directly from Taryn Crimi’s writing, which was already very affirmation-like, and the last part is taken directly from Archangel Michael’s and Linda Dillon’s article.

April 18, 2018, GAoG, By Paul Backes: Transcript ~ Archangel Michael: See Yourself as a Mt. Vesuvius of Joy! AHWAA April 12, 2018 with Linda Dillon. Steve Beckow is there, too.
Archangel Michael; with Linda Dillon channelling and Steve Beckow interviewing (direct quotes):
As you step forward this night and every night – always I am beckoning you to come and work and play and be the peace. But I also beckon you this night to come and be the joy, for how can there be love, how can there be peace, how can there be the experience of any of these Divine Qualities, these Blessings & Virtues, without joy, and without the sister – the twin – of gratitude; because if you are in joy, you are in gratitude.
As that font overflows, the golden essence that comes forth from the wellspring of your heart is gratitude. But it is also joy! Yes, joy is found deep within. It is part of the essential essence of who you are; of your divine and human DNA. But it is also intended, by its very makeup, to be shared; for what can be sweeter, my friend, than sharing the joy. And in this yes, sometimes it will express as happiness that is reactive that is about something. Joy is that infinite sense, not only of well-being, but of knowing.
Affirmations from me paraphrasing Tara Crimni and her Angelic Guides (paraphrase):
I jump off the shelf of ego and relax in the ocean of love. I take a deep breath and realize the joy of knowing that God supports me. I relax in the knowing that I am supported in all that I desire.
The Universe is responding to my every desire, every need, every wish for something better, and I can see those signs because I Am so focused on what I want.
As I allow my thoughts to focus upon what I desire, I see the unfolding of all that I desire in such perfection that I Am thrilled and exhilarated by how easily everything flows into my life.
I Am tuned into the vibration of creation; I see the signs and impulses the Universe is always giving me. I came here to experience the exhilaration of creating all that I desire into a physical reality.
I deliberately choose my thoughts because I know I Am the Co-creator of my reality, and I marvel at how much easier life feels. The Universe is always delivering to me more of what I focus upon.
I simply reach for the thoughts that feel good because there is always something I can focus upon that delights me. Always.
I came here to have fun and Be in Joy. I don’t worry so much about making mistakes, there really is no such thing. I will always have new desires, and it will always be incredibly pleasing each time that I allow the universe to deliver them. So I take a deep breath and relax into the ocean of knowing that I am infinitely supported in everything I desire. I am always in control, I can create anything I desire; there is never a dream too big.
I hold the key to all of my dreams. I focus on what I want rather than on what I don’t believe I have. I Feel what it would feel like to have those dreams now. What does it feel like to have My desires right now? I Play with this concept and I begin to see new opportunities flow into my life.
Archangel Michael, et al. (direct quotes):
AAM: ....Joy is that infinite sense, not only of well-being, but of knowing.
Now what do I mean by this? For you know that in this last year or two we have placed great emphasis on the acceptance and the dawning . . . taking your mantle of Divine Authority . . . the dawning of that mantle and of stepping forward as the speakers of Saedor, the warriors of truth. And, in that, in perfect alignment is the joy of your divine knowing.
When you have reached a place where you have accepted and surrendered to the fact that your internal knowing, when you have surrendered and aligned with Divine Heart, Mind and Will, there is such an experience and a presence; not just the experience, but a presence of joy. How could you possibly be in that depth of connection to our sacred Beloved Mother and not be in the depth, the height, the width, the breadth of joy?
It is not only the remembering; in the acceptance it brings it into what you construe as your current reality, your current existence, but also that existence within the infinite eternal experience and realm of time and of the energy of One. When you are there, and beloved ones you are, all the hardships, what you think of as setbacks, delays, are insignificant.
Now, I can already feel some of you say, “Oh, please Archangel Mi-ka-el, please do not tell us that there are more delays, more setbacks, more recalcitrance, more disinterest.” That is not what I am saying, but I don’t want you to go there – at least not yet.
With me in this infinite moment I want you to set aside the temporal, and to allow your heart, your mind, your self, your being, your massively expanded field to conjoin and merge with me in this joy of all. It is from the joy that you have the fuel; you have the desire to actually live your life in the most miniscule ways, and in the broadest ways.
I am not asking you, the Mother is not asking you, to ignore the details of your life; quite the contrary. When you embrace, when you own, the details of your life with joy coming from that state of being of joy, then what you think of as challenges or as distraction even, disappears because the essence and attitude of how you undertake your daily existence completely shifts. And in that experience, in that reinforcement of joy in the small things, it literally gives you the oomph, the fuel, the ignition to, in fact, begin with the bigger things.
Beloveds, you are the implementers of our Mother’s Plan, building Nova Earth. Yes, and I will say it – a world that works for everybody, a world that works for everyone. And, in that, everyone does not just mean the human beings or a particular group or a certain select minority. Everyone includes us because we are all part of One, of everyone.
You are not simply conjoined and part of Divine Mind/Heart/Being. You have been given renewed grit. You are part of us. We are part of you. The Mother is part of you. What strange delineations would someone wish to make? It would be absurd. Now having said that, where do you wish to begin, my beloved friend?
Steve Beckow: ...So, Sri Ramakrishna said about love, he said the ocean of love – it doesn’t matter how you get in it, walk in it, run in it, dive in it, be pushed in it, it doesn’t matter. Just get yourself in the ocean of love. Is the same thing true about joy?
AAM: Yes, you cannot separate these. Understand what I say, and this is also why our Beloved Mother speaks in terms of the infinite ocean of time. This is why she works with the Tsunami of Love. Tsunamis come in the oceans and they will take you and clear you and refresh you and renew you.
You know the love is as big as an ocean, as big as a planet, as big as a universe, a galaxy, an omniverse. There is not any separation – that is an illusion.... Every time you submerse or immerse yourself into the infinite, consciously, into the infinite ocean of love, you are immersing yourself in joy. Now this factor of discernment and of free will, think of it in this way: there are times when you may go into an ocean and you look for the golden sand or the little effervescent bubble, or the sparkling fish that are of joy. And that is exactly the experience that you are choosing to immerse yourself in.
Now, that does not mean that you’re not simultaneously being immersed and submersed in the placid currents of peace, of a deeper understanding of wisdom or the gentle flow. Think of the sea turtle or the whales that are bringing you compassion – it is all in there.
But at different times, depending on where you are, what you are wanting, desiring, paying attention to you will have some different experiences. So you cannot carve out, “Well, this is where joy is, this is where humility is.” It is all part of the infinite ocean of love.
But so often, and that is why we are speaking of joy this night, is that human beings, and I would say in the deepest reverence – you lightworkers and loveholders – you tend to take yourself and your mission and purpose, as do I, seriously. And that simply means with reverence and the level of attention that it deserves, but never, never has our Mother’s Desire or Her Plan been about burden.
So it is important, and that is why we are talking about it, that we speak about this refreshment of joy, so there is a sense as you go forward; and yes, as both of you have said, there is so much happening, that all the actions and the attitudes and the precursors to the actions are done in a depth and a knowing, an embrace and an embodiment of joy.
What is occurring right now as you are ascending, as you are already inhabiting your ascended self is that the level of awareness – what you are calling awareness and what I will also say and use as synonymous with consciousness, is becoming increasingly relevant and important.
Before, there are times like as you watch an innocent child or an infant who’s absolutely brimming over with bliss and joy and lying in the crib or lying on the floor or crawling and discovering a new toy and they are exploding with joy – not happiness, but just joy. Because everything is in divine perfection. And you most certainly know from them when it isn’t. There is joy, and in that there is a consciousness before that joy factor has been burnt out of them.
As you are becoming the fullness of your ascended self, that conscious awareness of the divine quality is essential because it extends that level from that state of conscious awareness that you are bringing forth the best, the highest, the easiest, the clearest creation.
So, this is why I have talked and mentioned about not having a sense of burden or obligation.
Responsibility is not meant to be tedious. It is meant to be an incredibly joyful experience, so bringing to your consciousness, having that connection is very essential.
Now, you say, “But it does not seem to be in consistent conscious awareness as yet.” Don’t worry about it because what you have is that moment to retrieve, retrieve, retrieve and bring in to your daily experience so you are holding on to what you know to be true. And that what you know actually serves you as you serve the Mother. So is the growth of this conscious, consistent presence of the Divine Qualities necessary? The answer is yes. Perhaps in old man, hu-man, wo-man it was not; but you are not the person any longer.
...You are Nova Beings, you are ancient angels, you are ancient hybrids gathered from the far reaches of the Mother’s realm, gathered here on beautiful Gaia. Yes, as the implementers of our Mother’s Plan, but also as the anchors of love, the builders of Earth, the re-creation of this world of joy. It is such a supreme gift.
You know, I work, I play, I serve, I exist for the Mother. It is my deepest joy – the meaning of my existence is to be in that union, that sacred partnership with the Mother and that is exactly what is being offered – consciously offered – to you.
Now there have been many discussions, and we have hosted them, about ascension, the meaning of ascension, the steps of ascension, but what is the true meaning? It is being in the union of love, in the acceptance of that love, of that joy, of that peace, not only with the Mother, not only with us, but with each other.
This planet, and particularly this planet, which was birthed and created as a place for angels to play and to know the physical experience of love, was intended to be joyful. The task at hand is truly embodying it. Yes, with the repertoire of Divine Qualities under that massive umbrella sky of love. But that is your ascension. It is not leaving, it is not departing. It is actually being your angelic self in beautiful human, physical form, playing with us. And, dear hearts, friends, allies we are ready to play.
...First of all, you have expanded and you have accepted, because it is not done to you, it is done with you. So the Mother’s Tsunami, the Tsunami of One, the Porlana C, your acceptance, your growth, your ascension process has expanded your field significantly.
So think of it in practical terms – there is more of you to access. You literally are drawing upon more of you, so when you come to let that laughter well up, might I even say to you it is more genuine because it is more you.
So that is one thing; that is your expanded self.
...Because all of you listening have this experience. Your fields, if you take a moment and simply feel your edges, which are several miles out at many times, you know there is more of you. The second is you have had these experiences in your memory banks of heart and mind, of bliss, of joy.
You have had these glimpses that you are anchoring; of what it really feels like, of what that depth of connection truly feels like. And it isn’t a momentary fleeting glimpse. It is truly anchoring, and it is anchoring into that expanded field of your reality – so that is another point.
...The other thing that has happened and this is why we have been literally years talking to you about sacred union, sacred partnership, and what that truly means. You are in a deeper, broader, higher form, not level but form, of sacred partnership with us, with me.
Think of it, the dozens and dozens of times I have met with you in the platform sharing our
vibration. Yes, there are words but really what we have been doing is conjoining heart to heart, being to being, and our sacred partnership has expanded. So my joy, and through me the Mother’s joy, through me the entire Archangelic, Seraphic realm of joy is being shared with you. So you are drawing on that experience as well. So it is growing, growing, growing.
...So as you expand, the Mother’s Tsunami comes in. Think of the joy as this massive wave and you are in the Ocean of Love up to your knees. And here you are being bowled over by the joy. It pushes out the vasanas.... I speak to all the loveholder community....
You shift yourself and your literal subatomic fibers are sparkling. And so because of that, it is so much easier in fact to access because you are not rigid... “...I choose to be, I will be more fluid.” And what happens in that? Not only is that joy more accessible within, in the fluidity you are sharing it more freely, more expansively in the without....
Now there is this law, as you know, this principle of free will. So you do not and neither do we override others’ free will. But that doesn’t mean, think of your energy – yes, miles out, beaming, in fact you have the full capacity to beam out not only as far as across your planet, through your planet, above your planet, but out to the universe. Your star brothers and sisters speak of this all the time.
So there can be, as these waves travel, someone who is feeling joyful, someone who is feeling shall we say neutral, and someone who is feeling distraught. Now your conscious self, because you are in this – you like to see results, and you don’t always see the results of your joy because your expanded vision/consciousness isn’t quite there yet.
But that joy travels out. A joyful person feels even more joyful. The neutral person looks up at the sky and says, “Look at that bird. Look at that tree. Look at that sky” and there is an ignition of joy. The distraught person receives the energy and may begin to see that there is hope, that there is joy – that there is a shift, an internal shift. They do not know why – none of them! Perhaps the joyful person does, but not always.
None of them know that this came from you, so they are not turning to you and saying thanks. That is not how this is working. You think that everyone that is traveling upon the planet is turning to me and saying, “Thanks, Mike, for a wonderful day!” No they are not. It does not mean that we stop. In fact, if anything we continue on more vigorously. So it is happening. You are just not fully conscious or aware that it is happening.
SB: Now, of course, we humans would say, “Well, that’s easy for you to say because you exist in total bliss, total joy, total love, and so you’re fully fueled.”
And what’s the fuel for us? You’ve already probably characterized it. The carrot is more joy.
People, individuals, humans, everyone knows about joy, right? And everyone wants joy. It feels better, so there is this push or draw, is there not? An innate, well it is innate, an innate… [I am referring to the longing for liberation, which is innate in people.]
AAM: It is innate and there is a deep yearning in every single being upon this planet and far beyond. There is a yearning for love. There is a yearning for joy. Think of it that you are metal filings and joy is the magnet. You cannot, as hard as you might try, [escape it] and you know there are beings that deeply try to achieve misery …
You have a saying, “You can do it now or you can do it later.” Well, that is exactly what the choice is.... Yes, you want the reinforcement. What you don’t always want, and that is why we have begun this night by talking about your dawning of your Divine Authority mantle and your acceptance and surrender to your divine knowing.
In every millisecond of every day you have a choice to be in joy or not. It is a choice. It is us saying to you, the Mother saying to you, “Beloved, what do you choose?” And you say, “Well, that’s very easy to ask when you are in full consciousness and bliss. What am I supposed to do when my back aches or my rent is due?”
Now there is a choice here. And the choice is, “Do I choose to trust and be in the joy of knowing that not only am I self-sufficient, not only am I a part of unified grid, that I’m taken care of?” or do you want to sit in the misery of feeling that perhaps you are abandoned and forgotten. These are choices and you have not been historically used to making these choices in the milliseconds of existence.
But when you choose the joy, when you say, “I am Creator and Co-creator with the Divine and I am going to allow for the spaciousness of joy to bring me – yes, with me doing my part – what I desire and need to continue on in human form.” These are decisions. This is your Divine Authority and knowing.
Love to All! Ruth, et al.
