What follows are common questions about Ascension and their answers. This is a dynamic document. We’ll keep adding to this collection and keep it posted here, changing the number with each new revision.
Q: When will Ascension occur?
A: There is an influx of supreme energy that will light and ignite your planet during this period. Now, it began on 12/12 and it is growing. So what you are saying is, “Will we get the full fireworks display on December 21st, 2012?” And I say, yes, there will be fireworks, and they will continue through the rest of the year. This is a-building.
Now, for some of you it is immediate because you have done all your work, all your preparations, and you have grounded deep in the heart of One and deep in the heart of Gaia.
For others, it will be more like an awakening and thinking, “Oh, my gosh, everything has changed! I’d better start adjusting.” So it will be more of a slower process rather than a snap, which we have referred to many, many times, again, through the end of the year, as you begin the new.
So are you asking, on this day, are the energies there and sent to Earth for everyone to awaken? And I say, yes. (“Archangel Michael: Let Us Ease This Flight to Freedom,” Dec. 17, 2012, at http://the2012scenario.com/2012/12/archangel-michael-let-us-ease-this-flight-to-freedom/)
The date 21st of December 2012 is on the minds of many as the moment for humanity’s awakening approaches. Expectations are high as much has been promised, and there is anxiety that what is to be delivered will not live up to your expectations. Do not worry.
“What is to be delivered is far beyond any of your expectations. There will be no disappointments as a New Age is delivered, bringing with it enormous improvements in the living standards of those who presently live in dire poverty, enabling them to live in the comfort and safety that is the unalienable right of every human being. (Saul, Dec., 16, 2012.)
At the time of the 21st December 2012, the high energy influx due to the alignment of your Sun and the Great Central Sun is going to ‘separate’ those who are ready to ascend, and those who are not. (SaLuSa, May 23, 2012.)
Q: At what time on Dec. 21 will we ascend?
A: AAM: I am telling you, do not focus on a time. Focus on a day. But for some of you, it will be more slow because of where you are emotionally, spiritually, physically. For some of you it will be rapid. (“Archangel Michael: Let Us Ease This Flight to Freedom,” Dec. 17, 2012, athttp://the2012scenario.com/2012/12/archangel-michael-let-us-ease-this-flight-to-freedom/)
So if you must focus on a time, again, go to the 11:11s or the 10:10s, or meditate from 10:10 to 11:11. We bring you back to the one. We bring you back and we bring you forward.
SB: Is this local time, Lord? Or Greenwich Mean Time?
AAM: Make it your local time. We do not wish to cause mayhem and panic with people trying to figure out Greenwich Mean Time. Now, because you think that some have said that it will take three days, this is part of simply the cycle of the global clock. (“Archangel Michael: Let Us Ease This Flight to Freedom,” Dec. 17, 2012, athttp://the2012scenario.com/2012/12/archangel-michael-let-us-ease-this-flight-to-freedom/)
Q: Will all of us ascend in the same manner?
A: Each of you do this process of Ascension in a different way. That is what the channel [Linda Dillon] has meant when she has said that it is private and individual and public. So you do it on an individual soul basis, but you also do this as a collective. We have been very emphatic that everybody, even those who think that they are not part of this, all are welcome, and all are being penetrated. (“Archangel Michael: Let Us Ease This Flight to Freedom,” Dec. 17, 2012, at http://the2012scenario.com/2012/12/archangel-michael-let-us-ease-this-flight-to-freedom/)
It is very different for each and every single human being upon the planet, the same way it has been different for every dog, every cat, every giraffe, every whale, every tree, every plant, every elemental.
You are unique. So I am asking you to go into — and this is pivotal for the shift that is taking place already — the place of allowing. Shifting Ascension, Descension [of bliss, heaven, etc.], is not a struggle. And it is not proving anything to yourself. So let it be. (“Archangel Michael: Let Us Ease This Flight to Freedom,” Dec. 17, 2012, athttp://the2012scenario.com/2012/12/archangel-michael-let-us-ease-this-flight-to-freedom/)
Q: What will the experience of Ascension be like?
A: The sense will be that you are flying upward. It is a physical sensation of movement. And a remembering, or a sensation of remembering, that you have wings, or the ability to fly. So that is the feeling of ascending up the sacred spiral.
There will also be in that period, which can be moments or a few hours, [a sensation] of feeling disassociated, that even if you were to open your eyes, even if you were to look at a floor, you would see that it is simply made of particles, subatomic particles, quantum particles, that it is not solid. So you have begun immediately to have the real sensation or vision of how things can be seen, and how they are seen, maybe, from this side.
So there is a sense of unreality. Now, if you wish to make things solid, you will just simply say that you want that, and it will appear. But the knowing that that is simply a construct that you are creating already is there in full consciousness. When you decide to open your eyes, how you see the colors, the textures, the richness, the air, will be very different. What you think of as your senses will be heightened, oh, at least a thousand-fold.
So, there is a little adjustment. And we are with you, and we obviously take care of that, because this is completely a joyous situation to be in. Think of it as being spiritually orgasmic. It is the union of all.
Then, you will settle into this knowing, and of course that choice of physicality. But also know that if you choose to keep physicality, immediately what you have noted as, what we would call human aches and pains are gone. But the biggest shift is you no longer live or exist — you can visit, you can exhibit, but you do not live — within the third dimension, where you are in that movement of what you think of as going up the sacred spiral.
That is the best analogy I can give you. It is the elevator to the Fifth [Notice that AA Michael says here the Fifth Dimension]. And further, there will be some who simply choose to keep going [to dimensions higher than the Fifth]. But as a collective, that is the plan.
And it will be the place of love. It will be all of a sudden that the decisions, the actions, the existence, the form is love, and is from love, and is of love. So that sense of either/or, of what you traditionally have thought of as yes or no, of duality, of polarity, is gone. It is the alignment. The entire journey in this third-dimensional existence is reaching this place of alignment, of placing yourself beyond the either/or. And when you are doing that in this ascension process, it is like a Roman candle: off you go. (“Archangel Michael on NESARA, Opposing the Cabal, and Ascension – Part 2/3,” Oct. 3, 2011, athttp://the2012scenario.com/2011/10/archangel-michael-on-nesara-opposing-the-cabal-and-ascension-part-23/.)
Q: When people become aware that something is happening, what should they do at that moment?
A: Relax. Lie down, if possible. Stay still. Go into your heart. Open it even wider. Anchor, feel that you are anchored firmly through the bed or the floor into Gaia, and just allow this transition to take place. (“Archangel Michael: Let Us Ease This Flight to Freedom,” Dec. 17, 2012, at http://the2012scenario.com/2012/12/archangel-michael-let-us-ease-this-flight-to-freedom/)
But it is also the cycle of significant change that you are feeling within yourself. It is a time to be quiet. It is not a time to be necessarily out and about. Yes, if you must be, then of course we protect you; we guide you. We are with you, as we have said. Your star brothers and sisters and all of us are on full active duty. But if you can, remain at home. Remain quiet with your loved ones in your sacred space. (“Archangel Michael: Let Us Ease This Flight to Freedom,” Dec. 17, 2012, at http://the2012scenario.com/2012/12/archangel-michael-let-us-ease-this-flight-to-freedom/)
Q: For how long with the door to Ascension remain open?
A: The door is being kept ajar by those of the collective of humanity — and your star brothers and sisters, actually — who have diligently worked, both consciously, unconsciously, and subconsciously, to keep this door open so that as many may ascend into the new realm as possible. …
At this point in your time, and in the convergence of the Divine Convergence, the door will be kept open for those who are diligently — and diligently is described and defined by yourselves — working on Ascension, the door will be kept open … for the duration of, shall we say, a lifetime. (“Archangel Michael: Let Us Ease This Flight to Freedom,” Dec. 17, 2012, at http://the2012scenario.com/2012/12/archangel-michael-let-us-ease-this-flight-to-freedom/)
Let go of the fear. And it is not just discouragement that I am talking about; it is also anger. There is this collective feeling, “Oh, we have been duped!” Let it go. The key, the key to the kingdom, the key to love, the key to your heart is to keep coming back to the love. (“Archangel Michael: Let Us Ease This Flight to Freedom,” Dec. 17, 2012, athttp://the2012scenario.com/2012/12/archangel-michael-let-us-ease-this-flight-to-freedom/)
Q: What allows a person to ascend?
A: It is the light within a body that transforms its carbon-based cellular structure into the crystalline form that enables the body to live in the high vibrations of energy planes beyond third density. (Matthew’s Message, Jan. 4, 2012.)
Only those of you who have lifted your vibrations sufficiently, will be able to join those energies. Thereby lies the outworking of a truth, that only those of the Light can exist in the new dimension. (SaLuSa, Jan. 9, 2012.)
Q: Is there any possibility that I will be in the wrong place at the wrong time for Ascension?
A: Be assured that you will all be in the right place for the end times, and follow your prompting if you feel a strong urge to re-locate yourself. At such times it is quite likely that you will feel a desire to be close to your family, and if so follow it through if you can. (SaLuSa, Aug. 5, 2011.)
Q: Will families ascend together?
A: Many families will ascend together although it will not apply to everyone, as there must be allowance made for each soul’s freewill choice. Bear in mind we are referring to groups of different souls, that come together for the purpose of furthering their evolution.
There will always be comings and goings within them, and very few souls will stay permanently for life after life. Be pleased for all those contacts you have made whether they were brief or otherwise, as they were intended as part of your experience, and each valuable in their own way. (SaLuSa, Aug. 5, 2011.)
Q: Will the family’s pets ascend and ascend with the family?
A: Earth’s animal and plant life automatically will go along with the planet and as she ascends, the animal kingdom once again will become peaceable. (Matthew’s Message, March 13, 2005.)
The innocence of her animal souls automatically lets them journey with [Gaia]. (Matthew’s Message, Feb. 8, 2004)
Animals who are loved and cared for automatically will travel along with their families. (Matthew’s Message, Feb. 8, 2004)
Q: Are the animals ready?
Everybody has been positioned — Gaia, the kingdoms, the plants, the animals, the elementals, the rivers, the streams, the mountains. They are all ready.
It is just human beings, the human collective that is doing some last-minute preparation. (“Archangel Michael: Let Us Ease This Flight to Freedom,” Dec. 17, 2012, athttp://the2012scenario.com/2012/12/archangel-michael-let-us-ease-this-flight-to-freedom/)
Q: Must I at least know a great deal about Ascension to ascend?
A: It is not even necessary to be fully enlightened about Ascension to ascend, but simply to be of good intent and live the love that is inside your heart for all life forms. (SaLuSa, July 5, 2011.)
Q: What do you say to those who can’t feel anything happening?
A: For those who feel that they do not sense or are not experiencing anything since the 12/12 opening of the unity portal, I would suggest that you are not building it on a minute-to-minute, hourly basis. What you have done is you have sat in meditation, and then you have said, “Oh, this isn’t working,” and then basically backed up.
And so I would ask you to continue to build, to build, to build. To, first, ignite your grid. Then, connecting and igniting the grid of Gaia. Then, igniting and connecting with the grid of humanity. Then igniting with your star brothers and sisters, and then with us, with One, with All.
And there is a part of you — yes, I will be the blunt archangel — that may well be — not consciously — fighting it; that you feel that it had need to be a very explosive feeling rather than the creeping of the dawn. (“Archangel Michael: Let Us Ease This Flight to Freedom,” Dec. 17, 2012, at http://the2012scenario.com/2012/12/archangel-michael-let-us-ease-this-flight-to-freedom/)
Steve: If somebody wakes up on the 22nd and they’re still here [in 3D], and Gaia is still here and they believe that they’ve done all their work and they were ready for Ascension, what do you say to them?
AAM: I say go still and allow the adjustment to take place. This is not about going or not going, because you are already most of the way up the spiral. In physical form, of course Gaia will continue on, and so will you. That is what is unique about this process. That is what is delightfully unique about this process.
But if you think — and I use the word “think” — that you wake up on the 22nd and that nothing has changed, rather than embracing the old and becoming reactive, because that is immediately reconnecting with the old third, go into your heart and allow the love and the shift to fully present itself. That is all you have to do. Just allow it to present itself. Allow your eyes to go out of focus, your body to relax, and receive. (“Archangel Michael: Let Us Ease This Flight to Freedom,” Dec. 17, 2012, athttp://the2012scenario.com/2012/12/archangel-michael-let-us-ease-this-flight-to-freedom/)
If they wake up and they think that they are still on the same old planet, then they have need immediately to attach to the new energy and allow that to flood them. Because all they are doing is carrying a wisp of historic information, and they can let it go. (“Archangel Michael: Let Us Ease This Flight to Freedom,” Dec. 17, 2012, athttp://the2012scenario.com/2012/12/archangel-michael-let-us-ease-this-flight-to-freedom/)
Q: Where will people go who are not quite ready to ascend?
A: There are also those who are still clinging — and we do include the lightholder, loveholder community who are still clinging to some fear, to some anger, to some reticence.
You need to let go of this, my friends. This is the last push. We have been flooding you with energy, but we cannot do this completely to you. This is a joint undertaking. This is the creative partnership.
When you have said, for example, if you wake up on the 22nd of December and it seems like you are in the same old same old, then you will be angry – then you WILL be angry, because you are holding onto anger. It has no place! It cannot exist, within your heart, within your being, within your essence, and it cannot exist in the air you breathe and the vibration of New Gaia, of Nova Earth.
So if you are holding on to it, if you are sitting there with your arms folded and saying, “If this doesn’t happen I am going to be furious,” I am begging you, let go of the fury. Let go of the fear. Let go of the reticence. This is a co-creation with you. It is the only reason you came to Earth at this time. “Transcript of Archangel Michael on Persistent Questions Relating to Ascension and a Roundtable – Part 1/2″ athttp://the2012scenario.com/2012/11/transcript-of-archangel-michael-on-persistent-questions-relating-to-ascension-and-a-roundtable-part-12/.
If you are determined that you still are requiring [a 3D experience] in terms of your own soul journey, for a very brief period of time, there will be a window open — and this has been a part of our work – if you are choosing to still have partial, and I do mean partial, experiences of what you consider to be the 3rd dimension, then you can do so. But the reality is not going to be there. You will experience a hologram.
Now, I am talking about the portion of the human race — not those who absolutely refuse to go and therefore have chosen reassignment — that is ready to go, holding love, but still clinging to some false belief systems. Now, I do not mean the false belief systems that are of the lower vibration, such as control, greed, death, destruction, despair.
So there will be some who find themselves in an intermediary position. But for the majority of those who have said yes, you will find yourself in very rapid transition into the 5th dimension. And perhaps even higher, for some of you….
By and large, that is not the people who are listening to this program tonight. (“Transcript of Archangel Michael on Persistent Questions Relating to Ascension and a Roundtable – Part 1/2″ at http://the2012scenario.com/2012/11/transcript-of-archangel-michael-on-persistent-questions-relating-to-ascension-and-a-roundtable-part-12/.)
Q: Can you describe this holographic world?
A: Well, they do not know it is a holographic world. There are many holographs that are presented already upon your planet that do not appear as if they are simply holographs. They are taken as substantial, or having form.
So when one goes to a holographic situation, it will appear as if everything is exactly the same, and that you are continuing to work on whatever your issues or your vasanas are and getting ready to continue on. (“Archangel Michael: Let Us Ease This Flight to Freedom,” Dec. 17, 2012, at http://the2012scenario.com/2012/12/archangel-michael-let-us-ease-this-flight-to-freedom/)
Q: Will Gaia be in the Third Dimension after Dec. 21?
Archangel Michael: She will not be there. She is already just brushing the third reality of physicality, and she does so that you are all getting ready. So, no, we do not mean that Gaia will still be in the old third dimension. Let us be very clear about that. …
She is anchored firmly in the fifth dimension; and she has the capacity also to continue on, and for some of you to even go through to the seventh.
Steve: So just to confirm, because, again, people will want very, very clear statements: On the 22nd, it is not possible to wake up on this planet as it was, say, on the 19th of December. It will be in the fifth. People who have not gone to the fifth will wake up either in the holographic world you talked about or else in another universe, I presume.
AAM: That is correct. (“Archangel Michael: Let Us Ease This Flight to Freedom,” Dec. 17, 2012, at http://the2012scenario.com/2012/12/archangel-michael-let-us-ease-this-flight-to-freedom/)
Q: Will the process end for the people who ascend on Dec. 21 or will there be more to the Ascension process?
A: Archangel Michael: [The Ascension process will continue] through to the end of the year, keep going.
Steve: Through to the end of the year?
AAM: If you sit down to dinner and dinner starts as it did, actually, on 12/12 or 11/11, but say you have had your appetizers in another room and you are sitting down to dinner on December 21st, 2012, well, you are going to be at the table through the end of the year. There are many courses, many expansions, many new experiences, many new tastes, many adjustments. Is that clear?
SB: But they will be on the fifth dimension?
AAM: Yes. That is correct. (“Archangel Michael: Let Us Ease This Flight to Freedom,” Dec. 17, 2012, at http://the2012scenario.com/2012/12/archangel-michael-let-us-ease-this-flight-to-freedom/)
Now I have said that this is a process and not quite a snap. And what do we mean in terms of divine understanding when we say that? Because when we say [it is not quite a] snap, we mean that it is not completely instantaneous. So for example, there are many, many, many upon your planet who have no idea about such a shift occurring. We are not trying, nor do we wish to set up a situation where people wake up and feel that they are psychotic. So for them, there will be a transition, somewhat of an incubation, while they attune themselves to the new reality. (“Transcript of Archangel Michael on Persistent Questions Relating to Ascension and a Roundtable – Part 1/2″ athttp://the2012scenario.com/2012/11/transcript-of-archangel-michael-on-persistent-questions-relating-to-ascension-and-a-roundtable-part-12/.)
Q: Will everyone ascend?
A: Are we working on everybody coming? Yes. Will everybody come? Not necessarily. (“Archangel Michael: Let Us Ease This Flight to Freedom,” Dec. 17, 2012, athttp://the2012scenario.com/2012/12/archangel-michael-let-us-ease-this-flight-to-freedom/)
Q: What will Ascension bring?
A: God’s love for His creation is infinite and the magnificent events that He will bring about very shortly now are, of course, unstoppable. It is His desire and intent that humanity move into its natural divine state of full consciousness – and so it will, at exactly the appropriate moment.
When this happens, immeasurable quantities of divine energies of healing, compassion, peace, harmony, and love will immerse your solar system.
All who wish it will become instantly aware of their divine God-given heritage and will move to renew their relationship with these energies, which will then flow freely through them.
The consequent change of perception that all will experience will lead to an immediate laying down of weapons, as all celebrate this wonderful release from the treadmill of karma.
The energy signature of humanity and of planet Earth will change instantly from its present one of anger, fear, hate, and confrontation to one of love, acceptance, compassion, and renewal, which will shine with such incredible brilliance that it will be clearly visible throughout the galaxy and will demonstrate the completion of this stage of the divine plan of creation.
Boundless joy is shortly to envelop you all, so during these last moments of the old matrix, hold the vision of the new Golden Age that is about to dawn for you. All is precisely on schedule, the countdown is almost complete, and Heaven on Earth will very soon be yours. (Saul, May 31, 2009.)
The date 21st of December 2012 is on the minds of many as the moment for humanity’s awakening approaches. Expectations are high as much has been promised, and there is anxiety that what is to be delivered will not live up to your expectations. Do not worry.
What is to be delivered is far beyond any of your expectations. There will be no disappointments as a New Age is delivered, bringing with it enormous improvements in the living standards of those who presently live in dire poverty, enabling them to live in the comfort and safety that is the unalienable right of every human being. …
Love is permeating each one of you to tease out the negative aspects that encourage you to see yourselves as unworthy of knowing God, and that make you feel fearful and tempt you to continue hiding from the warmth and acceptance His all-encompassing embrace. You are, each and every one of you, beginning to feel that loving embrace, and for some of you it is shocking, for others exhausting, and yet others terrifying, because you are still identifying with the little self that you made and hid within.
Those unreal feelings and fears are in the process of being completely dissolved so that any remaining sense of unacceptability or unworthiness will just dissipate, allowing you to understand your utter and unchanging acceptability in God’s eyes, so that you can fearlessly choose to open yourselves fully to Him in complete trust. When you do that, very shortly now, you will awaken, and eternal bliss will be yours. (Saul, Dec., 16, 2012.)
[Ascension] is a tremendous change of scope beyond your imagination, and involves Beings of unlimited power and love. They carry out the Will of God and in that lies your assurance that all will proceed according to the Divine Plan. (SaLuSa, April 13, 2012.)
Q: Will Ascension be delayed?
A: [Ascension is] happening by divine decree, … we can confidently assure you that it will not be delayed. Why otherwise would we of the Galactic Federation be encircling your Earth, with millions of craft in readiness for First Contact and the restoration of Mother Earth. (Atmos, Jan. 18, 2009.)
This is the Mother’s Plan … [and] there is no plan for postponement or delay. (Reading with Archangel Michael and Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, Aug. 17, 2012.)
[Ascension] is my plan. It is the Divine Plan and it is what we have waited for. Your countdown is on and so is ours. Every day we take the measure of the quotient of light and love on this planet and in the collective, and, dear hearts, it is growing.
It is not growing so that you will reach a tipping point. You are already there. You are all ready to come home. No, not to what to what you think of as the outer realms or Nirvana.
You are ready to come home to your Fifth Dimension, to your Nova Earth, to your nova self in your magnificent form of crystalline, diamonds under pressure. That is what we have worked so diligently with you for so long. Oh, long before you were born. (The Divine Mother in Handbook on Ascension, at http://the2012scenario.com/handbook-on-ascension/)
Q: I’m having issues with members of my family. Must I stay with them?
A: There is no time like the present to review your relationships with friends or family. Often when you incarnate you are placed with souls you have known in previous lives, and it is for the reason that you are likely to have issues between you that need facing again.
Because there is a block between you it carries forward to each life until it is resolved. When you are placed together again in a family you do not know why, but you may have antagonism for each other. Because family members are expected to try and get on with each other, it would be hoped that differences could be more easily overcome. However, that is not always the case and they can become worse.
So if you recognise yourself as being in such a situation, realise how it has come about and make a move to repair the damage to your relationship. Sometimes the hardest part is being able to forgive and it is not a sign of weakness on your part. Be the first one to offer the olive branch and it will release the negative emotions that you hold within.
It will be better to have addressed the problem now rather than let it fester and remain with you. Those who hold on to the idea that they are the victim, should understand that karma is the outworking of problems between two people and both are equally involved. (SaLuSa, July 11, 2012.)
You are your first responsibility. This is not selfishness or egotism, nor is it lack of love and caring for others. It is that only you can make decisions that are in line with your instincts and intuition, your soul’s guidance to your consciousness that nudges you into avenues that in your soul contract you chose to experience during this lifetime. This may include changes in relationships, employment, location, group affiliation or other interests and activities. (Matthew’s Message, July 4, 2012)
Q: What if a loved one does not want to ascend?
A: All is planned to ensure that as many souls as possible are ready to ascend. However no pressure whatsoever is placed upon those who choose to remain in the third dimension, but to continue that experience they will move elsewhere.
Neither is it considered a failure not to have reached Ascension, as you have infinite life and absolute freedom to take as long as you wish in the lower vibrations. Eventually every soul will rise up, as it is impossible to continue resisting the higher vibrations for any great length of time. (SaLuSa, April 18, 2012.)
Q: Is ascension sudden or is it gradual?
A: It is incremental. But let us be very clear, people will disappear. Now, in conjunction with that, they will also become a dim memory. You’ve had situations like this where you have had a pain or a bad habit or something that used to bother you very deeply, and you let it go. And then a year or two later, this situation will arise again and in a very vague way, you will say, “Oh, … yeah, that used to bother me,” and then you will continue with your day.
The shifting can be incremental. [Depending] on the readiness of the population, what we are seeing right now is that it will be in shifts. And there will be steps and doorways where some will simply go through and anchor for the whole, and then more will go through and anchor for the whole, until the entire process is completed.
Now there still will be those unfortunately, (or fortunately for they are doing what they wish, although it is not my desire), that will choose to continue on in this type of a reality, of the Third as you could think of it as … and they will be shifted to an alternate situation. The people, say, who are sitting there, may blink and not even remember … or have dim sense, ‘I wonder where so and so went?’
People will disappear. It will not be cause for trauma or mayhem. It will not be the same grieving as someone in the physical realm dying. It will just be a slight shift in the case of friends. But, in the case of husbands and wives, parents and children, there would be a knowing. (“Archangel Michael on Ascension” at http://the2012scenario.com/the-2012-scenario/what-role-are-the-angels-playing/archangel-michael-on-ascension/)
Q: What can we tell young children whose parents choose to die rather than change their religious beliefs, and who will care for all the children who are orphaned?
A: Many whose religious or scientific beliefs are the foundation of their lives will choose to depart rather than accept the forthcoming truths that differ profoundly from what they were taught. (Matthew’s Message, Jan. 4, 2012.)
The choice about when to leave this lifetime is made at soul level in original or amended contracts, and no one knows even his own contract, much less anyone else’s. All you can know about someone’s death is that the cause was a vehicle crash, for example, or cancer, heart failure, aneurism or any other medical diagnosis. So it is foolhardy to think, much less assume, that religiously-devout people who die when their children are young chose to do that rather alter their beliefs.
Overt devotion to religion is not the same as what is in one’s heart and mind. Persons you may think never would believe anything that conflicts with teachings of their church may be listening to soul-level messages; conversely, some of the darkest individuals among you attend church services or even hold high offices. …
If both parents die, their children will be cared for by the same family members, friends or legal guardians who would step in just as happens now. With consciousness increasing just as vibratory levels are, children are much more aware and resilient than you may think, and when telepathic connections open, they and their parents may discuss whatever they wish. (Matthew’s Message, Mar. 1, 2012.)
Q: Will many be departing at this time?
A: Many are choosing to leave at this time. Do not mourn them, but wish them well in their journey back home, for each and every one of you has been given the choice of staying or leaving for the dimensional shift. You know there is no death, no reason to sink into fear and sadness for those choosing to leave for they are simply moving to another place. Those on the other side can always hear you. Send them love and light, but do not consistently engage them, for that serves to hold them in bondage to the earth and the energy they have chosen to leave. It holds them back from proceeding with their own journey.
If someone leaves you with unfinished business, it is appropriate for you to remove any energetic cords, forgive if needed, send love, and consider the issue closed. Unfinished business involving forgiveness can often hold the loved one back because they need closure as much as those left behind. Closure is always possible whether both are in body or not. (The Arcturian Group, June 3, 2012)
Q: What is the situation of those who awaken at this late date; i.e., that is, around about now?
A: For some souls who have only just awakened, their reality has been shattered. And for a while, they will cling to what they believed to be the truth.
It is important that they realize that the coming changes are not to be feared. Also, that it is not too late to alter their pattern of thinking to allow their consciousness levels to be lifted and place themselves on the path to Ascension. (SaLuSa, May 28, 2012.)
Q: Where is the Light coming from that is causing Ascension?
A: Many higher Beings are … focusing their Light upon Earth. (SaLuSa, Apr. 16, 2010.)
There is so much help coming to you from many quarters, as the Universe follows the events upon Earth very closely. Your evolution is viewed as being most important, and a successful outcome is essential to the future of Mankind. (SaLuSa, March 22, 2010.)
[That light] is beamed to Earth from many different sources. The Universe is playing its part in ensuring your successful completion of this cycle, and continues to send ever-increasingly powerful rays of Light. (Ker-On of Venus, Aug. 5, 2009.)
Behind everything that occurs is the motivating force of Light that comes from your Central Sun. The God Force is being given to you at such levels as you can accommodate, and your power is increasing tenfold. I see the wonderful Light that encircles the Earth, and it grows faster than ever as more souls respond to its call. (Saint Germain, 26 Sept. 2008, athttp://www.treeofthegoldenlight.com/First_Contact/Channeled_Messages_by_Mike_Quinsey.htm.)
Q: What is a gate-keeper?
A: Many have already ascended, you know. But they come back to help. They are the way-showers. Your gate-keepers are all in place. So, they have also ascended and come back. Well, they are at the doorway. They are really straddling multidimensional reality. (“Archangel Michael: Let Us Ease This Flight to Freedom,” Dec. 17, 2012, athttp://the2012scenario.com/2012/12/archangel-michael-let-us-ease-this-flight-to-freedom/)
The time for the physical anchoring of Mother’s promise is upon us. And you, dear heart, it is why you have come. It is why this channel has come. It is why this circle has come. If one forgets that, that is very sad. But it is not a situation any longer, where the entire circle hangs back to bring others along. Now they will have to decide. Because you are holding open the doors.
It is not just metaphorically. You are holding open the doors. That is why all of you are so excited, anxious, tired. You are holding open the doors. We have not talked about this role of this circle of gatekeepers. It is a sacred trust and it is a sacred trust that you will never break. (Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, Nov. 12, 2012.)
Some of the galactics are gate-keepers. Some of the angelics are gate-keepers. Some of the humans are gate-keepers. You do not need to know them. They will be there. You may well recognize many of them as you arrive. But no, you do not need to know them. They know themselves. (“Archangel Michael: Let Us Ease This Flight to Freedom,” Dec. 17, 2012, athttp://the2012scenario.com/2012/12/archangel-michael-let-us-ease-this-flight-to-freedom/)
Q: What is a pillar?
A: You are a Pillar. And what does this mean? It means sweet angel that you are steadfast, that you are responsible and accountable and, a misunderstood word — reliable. I can rely on you to make sure that none are left behind. That the corners are swept clean with love. That where somebody needs a hand outstretched, a heart outstretched, that you will be there.
You are holding up the temple so that all can exit, and so yes, when you exit what you think of as old reality — it collapses and disappears and returns dust to dust. But, not you. I will not leave you behind. Quite the contary. Do not forget that there is also another message [I received this in 2009] That the last shall be first and the meek will inherit the Earth.
Do not worry, you are a sacred pillar and you are an observer. That is also what a pillar does, it holds up the energy, and it is solid, it does not move, it does not waiver. You have been given many challenges to see if this woul! d stand true and you have held firm and you have been stalwart and you have allowed the enfoldment around you. (Personal reading between LM and the Divine Mother through Linda Dillon, Nov. 7, 2012.)
Q: What level of enlightenment does Ascension corresponds to. I think it’s beyond the normal seventh-chakra enlightenment. I think it is what is called Sahaja Samadhi. Am I correct?
Divine Mother: Yes, it is beyond what you think of with your seven chakras. It is beyond, because what you are doing with the chakra system, even with the thirteen, we have emerged from the Third-dimensional realm, which is that reference point for the chakra system, into the new. So yes, you are correct, in this question and in this statement.
Steve Beckow: It’s wonderful to have that confirmed. Thank you very much, Mother.
DM: It is wonderful for us as well, you know! … Now, you understand that most people – and yes, you will do a good job of explaining – have no conception of what this really means.
SB: Well, you know that I have a website that discusses Sahaja Samadhi at length. … If I take that material and present it to readers, would that be adequate?
DM: That will help. (“The Divine Mother: Come to Me as I Come to You – Part ½,” Oct. 17, 2012, at http://the2012scenario.com/2012/10/the-divine-mother-come-to-me-as-i-come-to-you-part-12/.

Many people consider that [Kevalya] Nirvikalpa Samadhi [or Brahmajnana] is final, and once having attained it seek to progress no further.
[But] Sahaja [Nirvikalpa] Samadhi is the final and most blessed state, the goal of all Yogis. In this state the individual has become completely merged in the Supreme Self. His identity which became lost in Nirvikalpa Samadhi has become enlarged and is now the Supreme Self and knows itself as such.
Trances are no longer necessary, a person can still carry on with the ordinary day to day business but he no longer identifies himself with the activities, but watches them like a dreamer watching a dream.
There is no more to do, and no more to be attained. This is the Supreme State of Absolute Bliss. But in the words of Bhagavan, it is the SELF and it can be realized by one and all by Self-enquiry. ( Sadhu Arunachala [A.W. Chadwick], A Sadhu’s Reminiscences of Ramana Maharshi. Tiruvannamalai: Sri Ramanasramam, 1961, 47-8.)
By repeated practice one can become accustomed to turning inwards and finding the Self. One must always and constantly make an effort, until one has permanently realized. Once the effort ceases, the state becomes natural and the Supreme takes possession of the person with an unbroken current. Until it has become permanently natural and your habitual state, know that you have not realized the Self, only glimpsed it. (Ramana Maharshi in Paul Brunton and Munagala Venkataramaiah. Conscious Immortality. Conversations with Sri Ramana Maharshi. Rev. ed. 1996. , n.p.)
