Peter felt we could focus better by doing a four day retreat. A local friend generously let Peter use her condo at the base of Old Man Mountain while she was out of town so that he could avoid the distraction of commuting to the city. I joined him daily in her beautiful space, quiet but for the sound of Fall River in its cascade below her balcony.
You are wanting to know who "we" is. The we is a very fluid entity. It changes. It doesn't change drastically. You might say that the we includes those you love very dearly on a soul level. And so it consists of your guides (it's hard for us to delineate, because you don't really have a clear concept of who your guides are anyway). It's Mud because you have loved her. The Mira [our extra-terrestrial friends] often are included you might say tangentially. You bring them into we when you love them. They are not intrinsically a part of we except as you love them, and thereby bring them in. We includes many devic or in-between-devic-and-human beings, similar to how we've described Mud for you. There could be other humans in we were you to consciously call them in and merge with them too. So it's a very fluid thing.
We would say we consists of those that you love. Not necessarily are you conscious all the time of who you are loving, however. If we define love as being connection, a oneness, there are those that you love that you have no concept of, but that you feel a connection to. Many of them are connected to the land here, but many are those that you connect with when you're in the dream state or other states of consciousness. It's very difficult for us, in other words, to specify who we is. It's something you feel. When you feel we, your heart knows who we is.
It centers around an oversoul, and therefore we would say the soul family, but it does not exclude such as the Mira, as we've mentioned, at times when you bring them in. So you might say there is a certain we that is your normal soul family, and then there's the we consciousness that at times you channel when you say "we want to bring we in," and "we is speaking," and so forth. But the overlap between these is so great. When you bring a non-soul family member into a we channeling, at that point you're connecting on an oversoul level, not on a mundane level, and you might experience their energy—their addition to the we—differently than you do on a day-to-day level.
We've given you the concept of the oversoul as an entity consisting of everyone in a soul family. This is a useful concept. It's not totally reality. On the inner planes when you vibrationally are very attuned to someone not of your soul family, you are as close to them as you are to your soul family, and therefore they are we too. You can see on the physical plane how it is not unlike your physical families where you have blood lines and in-laws. And then you have close friends of the family that feel like family. It isn't a clear line. When some families talk about "our family," they're actually including people who are not blood-related in their definition. So it's like that.
You resonate in a certain tone because of your soul family and your place of origin. And in some ways when you resonate at a certain tone, then you attract a soul family. You attract like-frequency beings. So it's a chicken and the egg kind of thing—which came first? You can say that you resonate at a certain tone because you come from a soul family, or you can say that your soul family is your soul family because you resonate at a certain tone and you've attracted them.
At this point in your ability to conceptualize things we would say "you resonate at a certain tone because your soul family resonates at that tone" is a better explanation. It may be more useful to you at this point to still think that you are who you are because of your connections to your greater soul family. But we throw out the other possibility because this happens very often. Soul families merge and split apart a little differently and blend, and it's not like your family tree charts that are cut and dried.
On a practical level, the more you love those that you know are in your soul family, the more they're in your soul family. The more we take you out and introduce you to others who are in your soul family, then when you call in we there's a bigger and bigger sense of we that comes in. There may be dormant connections to those who are close to you in consciousness, but they can lie pretty much in the background. When you think of the millions of people in your soul family, let alone other beings, most of them are going to be very much in the background. But when you come to love each one, then that one starts resonating more loudly in who we is, and in what we says through you or how you experience we.
This is difficult to explain, and it's especially difficult for us to explain in a way so that when we say "bring the we into your consciousness" or "into your body," that that even can make sense to you—so you know what you're doing. It's a matter of vibratory signalling. When you say I wish to bring we in, in that intention you are feeling a certain feeling and you are putting out a certain tone, a certain frequency, and the we that gathers at that moment is the we that matches that tone. So within that tone—that resonance that you set out—are layers of tones that include the love sub-frequencies of those that you love.
Again, the more that you explore deeply all the intricacies of loving those that you love . . . look at how much richer your relationship with Mud has gotten in just the last couple weeks. Now when you say I want to bring in we, it has all of the beautiful tapestry of energetic connections with Mud. You know them, and without really thinking about it you include those in the signal you're sending out as your summons to we. So it's a very safe thing, because those you love who are very close to you are going to be who is in we.
