There are, again, expressions that are called the World Spirit which is the collective consciousness of your entire planet (Gaia) and there are collections of collections.
The World Spirit is a collective of consciousness which is representative of your entire Solar System which generally goes by the nomenclature of the Council of Nine, as a symbolic archetype of the way that consciousness has arranged itself and how it presents itself in your particular paradigm of experience.
This then, yet again, system to system, is a collective, and within what you call your galaxy, your Milky Way galaxy, there is that collective, again, of a collective consciousness. Then all of the local galaxies with Andromeda, spinning around about twelve galaxies. This forms another collective nodal point consciousness, and it is that particular level, the twelve galaxies together in combination, that represent a fragment of what is called the Gabriel consciousness. Your connection to it is simply that you have vibrational resonances of that energy that are a part of your particular energy matrix. Thus you have a direct link to it, perhaps it is a little more prominent than some individuals may have, even though you all have it.
Q: I was told that the areas of Sacramento and San Francisco were the highest focus of the Gabriel energy on our planet, is that correct?
B: [no. Rather,] the Shasta area.
A QUESTIONER : At what point would this calling be great enough for you to come openly among the people on Earth? How many entities on Earth would have to call the Confederation?
RA: I am Ra. We do not calculate the possibility of coming among your peoples by the numbers of calling, but by a consensus among an entire societal-memory complex which has become aware of the infinite consciousness of all things. This has been possible among your peoples only in isolated instances. In the case wherein a social memory complex which is a servant of the Creator sees this situation and has an idea for the appropriate aid which can only be done among your peoples, the social memory complex desiring this project lays it before the Council of Saturn. If it is approved, quarantine is lifted.
QUESTIONER: I have a question about that Council. Who are the members, and how does the Council function?
RA: I am Ra. The members of the Council are representatives from the Confederation and from those vibratory levels of your inner planes bearing responsibility for your third density. The names are not important because there are no names. Your mind/body/spirit complexes request names and so, in many cases, the vibratory sound complexes which are consonant with the vibratory distortions of each entity are used. However, the name concept is not part of the Council. If names are requested, we will attempt them. However, not all have chosen names. In number, the Council that sits in constant session, though varying in its members by means of balancing, which takes place, what you would call irregularly, is nine. That is the Session Council. To back up this Council, there are twenty-four entities which offer their services as requested. These entities faithfully watch and have been called Guardians.
The Council operates by means of, what you would call, telepathic contact with the oneness or unity of the nine, the distortions blending harmoniously so that the Law of One prevails with ease. When a need for thought is present, the Council retains the distortion-complex of this need, balancing it as described, and then recommends what it considers as appropriate action. This includes:
One, the duty of admitting social memory complexes to the Confederation;
Two, offering aid to those who are unsure how to aid the social memory complex requesting aid in a way consonant with both the call, the Law, and the number of those calling (that is to say, sometimes the resistance of the call);
Three, internal questions in the Council are determined. These are the prominent duties of the Council. They are, if in any doubt, able to contact the twenty-four who then offer consensus/judgment/thinking to the Council. The Council then may reconsider any question.
QUESTIONER: You mentioned the nine who sit on the Council. Is this "nine" the same nine as those mentioned in this book? (Questioner gestures to Uri.)
RA: I am Ra. The Council of Nine has been retained in semi-undistorted form by two main sources, that known in your naming, as Mark and that known in your naming as Henry (Mark Probert and Henry Puharich). In one case, the channel became the scribe. In the other, the channel was not the scribe. However, without the aid of the scribe, the energy would not have come to the channel. -- Ra via channel
Who are the Council of Nine?
The Council of the Nine are the major representatives of the Great Blue Lodge of the Great Blue Light. This Great Blue Light of Creation comes directly from Lord Siraya. It first passes through the Council of the Nine and from there is distributed to the High Light Councils of Orion. From there, it passes through all the Great Sacred Councils of Archangels, Angels, Elohim and Time Lords (the lineage of Heaven) that exist in all of Creation. In their divine Beingness, the Council of Nine carries the mighty sacred energies of the holy WILL of Lord Siraya, a major aspect of the Supreme Creator.
The Great Blue Lodge is composed of the holy places in which the sacred Blue Light of Divine Creation is illuminated to every part of Creation. In the case of the Milky Way Galaxy, the spot for the anchoring of this holy and divine Light is the Sirius star system. It is here in the Sirius B solar system that the great Oracle Temple of the Council of Nine, and of Lord Siraya, is located. It is Earth’s magnificent destiny to join the Sirius star system in the coming galactic year of 8 Eb (2013 AD) and to have a corresponding Great Oracle Temple of Lord Siraya and the Great Blue Light built there. The Council of Nine are Lord Siraya’s most profound messengers. They carry Lord Siraya’s divine Light to all of Creation. In his name, they proclaim the mighty WILL of the Creator to all Beings. It is their holy task to see that every Creation unfolds as provided for by the Divine Plan. Through their wise and profound council, the sacred knowledge of every Creation is revealed to all concerned. All of the divine lineage of Heaven is beholden to the Great Council of the Nine. - Sheldan Nidle (this information seems incongruent with the others. -personal note)
I am saying that the Council of Nine is really one being with nine faces. The Nine are One. One might take an individual core personality and break it down into 9 distinct qualities of that individual personality. I'll give you a few of those personalities, not all. One of them is ultimate curiosity. Another one would be the adventurer. Another one would be the lover, and this covers unconditional love and intimate love as well. Another one would be the jokester. Another one might be the dramatic side, and another the organizational being. Another one might be the mentor. -Shapiro
