ARCHANGEL MICHAEL FIVE AGREEMENTS: Agreement 4 - Develop a Sense of Self!


Archangel Michael Five Agreements

These Five Agreements (channeled by Jeff Fasano, author of Journey of the Awakened Heart) were presented to us by Michael in 2007 as “Guidelines to live your life by.” They are the foundation of The Angel News Network.

We make these agreements with OURSELVES to raise our consciousness so that we may fully live our life mission.

“Develop a Sense of Self” 
Agreement 4

You are now beginning to shift into a brand new reality. You are leaving the old behind and have made the choice to move into the new. The old no longer serves you and the movement forward and toward. It no longer serves your highest good and the highest good of the new relationships you are forming or the formation of the new soul family. The old should be behind you on the path into the unknown and the intersection where you will meet your soul’s divine plan.



Are you still in the old and repeating old habits patterns and rituals or do you see them as old? Are you moving into the depth of your heart and feeling your feelings? Do you move into your metal body and look to control everything outside of you?



Are you now getting a firm sense of who you are? Knowing who you are. Are you utilizing your talents and gifts to move into the unknown? Are you utilizing your tools, the exercises We have given you in the two 10 part series Who Are You? and Why You Are Here? What are the talents and gifts you are utilizing to move into the unknown? Are you stridently moving forward into the unknown towards expressing yourself and being who you are? Do you know who you are? Do you know exactly where you are? Are you looking at the old dramas in your life and are they coming up once again to rear their ugly heads so you can partake in the drama? Where are you being “bogged down” in the old? Are you partaking in the old? Have you utilized your tools so you can now respond in each and every situation and still move forward as roadblocks come before you? Are these roadblocks turning into brick walls? Or are you opening to the depth of your heart and opening your bag of tools so you can see the roadblock whatever that may be for you? It could be the old, or an old relationship that no longer resonates for you but you are still in it. You can now move into your heart, look at the roadblock, utilize your tools and still maintain the focus and commitment of moving forward and toward. Or do you look over your shoulder at what was and tantalized by it because it is comfortable? Are you still in comfort zones? What are they? Where are you still comfortable recreating the old? We are talking to you about making the final choice to move into the new and creating the new world of harmony, community and equality. To move within that by being who you are and utilizing your talents and gifts to know why you are here. Do you know why you are here?



Or are you meandering along the pathway hoping that someone or something will come along to tell you why you are here? Can you move within to see and understand why you are here? You are here to give of your talents and gifts in whatever way you choose and then open your heart to receive love.



Yet before you do this We take you back to the first 10 part series “Who Are You?” to introduce you to the fourth agreement known as The Sense of Self. Knowing who you are will create for you a sense of self. Knowing who you are will allow you to give to you and why We gave you the exercise to give something every day to you for you. Thus being able to love you.


Many asked, why should we do this? If you asked this question it is an indication of how much you love you. You should be giving something new to you every day if not many things. After all you do love you? If you do, you will begin to have a sense of who you are. As you move through the personal process your sense of self will be shown to you in varying degrees. Processing the narcissistic me and the old by utilizing your tools will reveal this.



Sense of Self is what you are now asked to look at. To what degree do you love you? Or do you love you at all? Where are you? Who are you? Knowing who you are and moving through each lesson that we gave you will bring you to a place of understanding who you are, knowing it and loving you. The only way in which you can move to the next step, giving and receiving love in balance is to know who you are and have a sense of self. Receiving love means opening to the depth of your heart and receiving it without attachment. Or is it giving you something that you think is not within you? Gratification and validation is not receiving love, it is about getting something from outside of you to validate who you are. In order now to begin to receive love you must know who you are and have a deep sense of that. Anything else is simply gratifying the addiction to looking for something outside of you to tell you who you are. Are you still doing this? Are you still looking outside of you for the mythical mom and dad figure to tell you who you are, to give you a sense of self? Do you still look to those who you do give to, to tell you how wonderful you are for doing so? Thus giving you a sense of who you are. It is time to truly give to you. Who are you? How much do you love you? How deep is your sense of self? Are you still doing all of the above?



Knowing who you are is of the utmost importance now because it is time to fully release looking outside of you for anything that will satisfy your addictions. Satisfy looking outside of you for your gratification and your validation. By having a deep sense of self you will no longer need to do this. You will no longer be expending an inordinate amount of energy to hold in place that aspect of the narcissistic me. Are you processing this?



Are you conscious when you look outside of you for validation, gratification and satisfaction? Are you aware that you do it? Can you see when it is revealed to you that you are partaking in this old behavior? Can you see it for what it is with compassion and acceptance? Realize it, process it in your personal process so you can understand it, not in your mind but in your heart. Look to see if you are perpetuating this.



So We ask you once again to write down five aspects that you love about you. When you do this now see if it makes sense to you. Can you receive it? Can you give to you these five aspects of you that you love to see if it makes sense to you. Is it you? Do you get a sense of you when you write this down? Are you conscious of them and do you embody them? This will give you a wonderful indication of how deep a sense of you, you have. Do you know who you truly are and do you have a deep sense of it?
Can you give to you daily? And what do give to you based simply on the fact that you love you? Or is it a duty and a chore to do this? Give something to you each and every day. Look at what you give you and how much of it you give to you.



Is it something you joyfully do for you because you know who you are, love you and have a great sense of this so you can begin to receive it? When you give of your talents and gifts do you have a sense of what you are giving? What part of you are you giving? How much do you give? Do you give yourself away to be loved? And are you still repeating these old patterns? Do you have a sense of how much energy you expend on giving each day and a sense of how much you spend on receiving each day? Is there a balance? This all relates to the sense of self. For when you give you receive. Can you give to you and receive it? Find those five aspects and receive them and find out if they make sense to you. Where are you now in this process as you move forward and toward? Where are you on the pathway into the unknown and how far along are you?



When a roadblock comes before you, do you stop indulge and sink? Or do you know who you are, know your talents and gifts and giving them to create the new world of harmony, community and equality and forming the new soul family? Do you get bogged down in the narcissism of you and within the blind spot forget everything and sink and indulge back into old habits, patterns and rituals and wonder why and how?



Or, are you being you, utilizing your tools, feeling your feelings, knowing who you are and your talents and gifts? If you know all of this can you embody it and gain a sense of you within it? Who are you? How much of you do you know?



Do you know why you are going through this process to find out? Do you know why you undertake the process personally to move through the aspects of the narcissistic me? Why do you do this? We ask you to answer this question. Why am I going through this process of ascension? Why have I chosen to move beyond the gates to create the new world of harmony and equality? Am I going to get something from it? Am I going to be gratified, deified andloved for doing it? Am I going to finally prove to mom and dad that I have become successful? Or are you truly here with a great sense of self that has been garnered by moving through the process utilizing your tools and doing the “work”? Are you committed to doing that work so you can move well beyond the illusions and glamours of your third dimensional realm to move into the depth of your heart to reveal the truth within? And reveal the essence of you within? Move to a place of being-ness which is love. Love is not something you get from outside of you. It simply radiates from the depth and breadth of your heart. You are love. However do you know enough and have a sense of you to love you? Or are you looking for that outside of you?You are now ready to make definitive choices and decisions about moving forward and towards and taking your life to a new level. You are on the road to the unknown and have chosen the path of the Lightworker.
Are you responsible within you to take the responsibility as the Way Shower as those will come through the door to meet you and see you? When they ask you, what is your process, can you simply show then the way and allow them to join you?

Or will you continue in the old habits, patterns and rituals and sink into the old drama and glamour of your life?



It is time to make this decisions and the way in which you will make it is by having a deeper sense of self so you will know. Can you now accept with compassion that this is exactly where you are supposed to be because you have free will and have made the choice to be here?



Nothing-ness



When old habits, patterns and rituals are no longer available to use any longer the shift into the new has begun. The old is no longer available. What happens when you get to this place you are in “nothingness” where nothing and everything exists at the same time. it is an unknown place where the old bag of tricks is empty. You can only resort to your tools and what is and who you are.

The Authentic Self (Sense of Self)


Have you made the agreement that World Service is your path in this lifetime? If you have made the agreement to serve the world as an adult, it is your responsibility to be in a personal process to process those aspects of the narcissistic me that still linger and will linger throughout your lifetime. Have you looked at this? Personal process is a lifetime commitment. World Service is a lifetime commitment. All these agreements are lifetime commitments. If you have chosen this process, you have chosen to live your purpose in this lifetime.

Remnants of your mask still exist and there are aspects of yourself that you still judge and shame. Judgment and shame still exist within you. What aspects of yourself do you still judge and shame? When you are with another in an energetic connection you might be judging and shaming yourself so it is most important to see this.

As you move through this process, you will see where you still judge and shame yourself through the remnants of the mask that still exist. When you step out into the unknown these remnants will surface because you still reside in comfort zones. Whether it is in the geographical location you inhabit, your living room or your bedroom you still have your comfort zones. In this process you will step out of those comfort zones into the unknown where it is just you and you alone. Leaving those comfort zones will allow you to open the door and stand naked before the world and all you have is you. This is why We begin with judgment and shame. In seeing this and releasing what you judge and shame you will then begin to reveal a greater depth of you to then move into authenticity, your authentic self. 

At this wonderful and most glorious time you are now moving into the full depth of you, a depth you have ever known. We now continue with the agreement Sense of Self. You are moving into a depth of self that you have never known because you are lowering the mask you have used to operate within your entire life and beginning to remove it. You are moving from the person who said, “See me, see the person you would like me to be” to being the person who is behind that mask. As you move step-by-step through this process you begin to move into a greater depth of sense of self because you are releasing those aspects of you that you judged and shamed. You are now moving into authenticity, the authentic self.

Ask yourself, am I being authentic in my relationships? Am I being authentic when I convene with others in relationship with them? Am I coming from the depth and breadth of my heart space? Am I speaking to be heard so others will know what I am doing? Is your authenticity in place? Or are you trying to impress others to validate and gratify you? Are you emanating from the depth of your heart or are you walking around with a veil or the mask in place testing the water to see if it is okay to be the authentic you or simply to be you? Are you being you? What do you use to mask being you? Is this still in place?

Ask these questions:

Are you being authentic?


Do you express yourself from the depth and breadth of your heart and from a place of love? 

Love of self, love of your talents and gifts then love for the passions and purpose you have in this lifetime?

Are you telling others, this is who I think I am because when I do you then will love me? 

Then you will validate me, and gratify me?

Does your voice and your expression of you come from the depth of your heart? 

Are you trying to convince yourself of yourself?

Are you moving deeper within the depth and breadth of your heart?

Are you creating a deeper sense of you and does this emanate from your heart?

Or does it emanate from your mental body by saying this is what I think is perfect to say? 

This is what I think I can say so others will know that I am good enough.

Move into the depth of your heart and ask:

Do I honor and value me as I judge and shame me?


Judgment and shame is simply the conditioning in the mental body that you learned from mom and dad.

Are you utilizing your tools to get rid of judgment and shame?

What are you utilizing to simply avoid feeling the feelings when you are participating in your judgment and shame?

Are you participating in your judgment and shame?

Are you allowing the judgment and shame and giving it credence?

Whose voices do you hear?

Are those the voices of mom and dad judging and shaming you thus conditioned you to judge and shame yourself and then judge and shame others?

Can you now accept with compassion judgment and shame?

You have put a mask and a veil over the judgment and shame and quite possibly tried to get rid of it. It is not about getting rid of it, it is about integrating the feelings in the depth of your heart to know that it is simply okay if you are judging and shaming yourself. Is your authenticity here? Is there authenticity in your judgment and shame to allow it to be there? 

Understand it is your wounded child who is being judged and shamed. Move into the depth of your heart and connect with this wonderful wounded child. It is he or she who has been judged and shamed by mom and dad. Can you move into the depth of your heart and release pontificating about your judgment and shame and simply be in the quietness of you and connect with your wounded child who still feels the judgment and shame? And think that is who they are. In doing this you will come to the fore in the authentic-ness of you by allowing in the quietness your feelings to arise.

We ask you to move into the quietness and ask yourself, am I being authentic? Am I being “real” with my brethren? Or am I pontificating and explaining my judgment and shame? 

Explaining why I am avoiding the feelings? This just might not be as complicated as you think it is, it is quite simple.

Move within and connect with that wounded little boy or girl and ask them, are you feeling judged and shamed? What are you feeling? Share your feelings in authenticity with your brethren in the quietness and realism of you.

The next exercise is to look at your mask. Listen to yourself when you connect with others. Observe yourself when you connect with others. What aspects of the mask still remain when you connect in relationship with others? Are you still trying to be perfect or good enough so others will love you?

What do you need? In relationship with others can you ask what you need in acceptance? If you can, move to the depth of your heart and release your mask and share with your brethren what you need. I need to be heard, I need to be loved, I need to you to hear me, I need your acceptance and compassion. And when you connect with the little boy or girl ask that little boy or girl, What do you need? Then ask yourself, can I give that to she or him?

Then again ask your brethren for what you need.


It is time to release the mask. It is time to fully be you and who you are. It is time to find your defense. Your defense is what you use to defend that little boy or girl from the outside world when they think they are being judged or shamed. This defense mechanism is what you utilize so that you feel safe and secure and allows the mask to remain in place.

Are you being fully transparent from the depth and breadth of your heart? When you move into your heart to fully be who you are, there is no mask. You are moving within to the essence of you that is peace, community, harmony, equality, and love. There is no shame and judgment of that. The shame and judgment is for what you think you are not.

It is time to release the mechanism that holds your defense in place. You are now moving deeper. Are you ready to move even deeper?

Do you meander in your mental body about your authenticity? We ask you to meander throughout your entire physical being-ness. Meander through your mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical bodies about your authenticity. Are you being you? Do you know who you are? Or are you being someone you think are supposed to be?

It is most important to realize that your journey through life is now being fully transparent. It is about letting down the veil, the mask in front of you to allow yourself to have all of your feelings and to state your needs and set your boundaries. Tell your brethren what you are feeling in each and every moment. Gather together and join your hearts and your souls and see the mirror. Are you being authentic or does the mask still exist to show everyone else who you think you might be? Or are you being who you are?
