When you focus on "them" [Archons] they have a built-in defense mechanism that will make you sick, will make you despair, will make you tend towards dark thoughts and dark energy.
You should not forget that your current point in time is extremely active / bursty in developing the ultimate freedom of humanity. There are many groups in progress, but do not look to your neighbor and compare, but look in your heart and follow it. Whatever feels right is what you should be doing at this point in time, for it lets your heart soar and allows your spirit to rise to its highest vibration. In so doing, the machine that you wish to be a part of naturally synchronizes like gears in a finely-tuned engine.
Regarding your twin flame, this is simply your soul, although romantic notions of another are an accurate expression of the love between you. You might think of it as looking into a mirror and seeing the female version of yourself, if you are male. This may seem contrary to other information that has been released, but remember that all gems have many facets. You may not even recognize your own soul if you were to meet it face to face.
You can start to sense that you are in the driver's seat of the vehicle of your life. It is you who are steering every minute, even though at times it may seem that you are a slave in a system designed to control you. The minutes you have that you can genuinely say you are control of may seem very limited now, but everything is "me"-time in one way or another. Your desire to learn and grow is balanced by your desire to turn inwards and feed your soul.
>What can you say about messages that are designed to extend hope?
Hope is the expectation that things will turn out alright. Hope is also the start of manifestation, but there is so much social energy that is designed to derail the process of manifestation, either through self-doubt or through denial. More often than not things do turn out for the best, and this is simply the positive manifestation of what you consider "hope". It starts as a positive expression, and works its way through to realization. You can sense that it is possible to make anything happen, yet know in your heart that your wildest dreams cannot be achieved. Try thinking of hope in terms of the highest expression of your soul, and know that it will happen. Give the seed time to turn into a flower, because even the fastest-growing plants need time to grow.
Extending hope as you suggest is the process of re-setting the manifestation process. It is not done to harm you, but when you reach a certain point in your understanding you see that this hope extension is not necessarily "for" you if you are at a certain point in the manifestation process. You KNOW it will happen... re-setting your hope is similar to planting a new seed. Be patient and care for the first seed you planted!
The template of farming is certainly something you can observe, but remember that every farmer started small, as a young child planting the first seed and watching it grow. As they grew up, they understood that this could be applied to a larger template on a larger scale.
