With loving greetings from all souls at this station, this is Matthew. We thank the reader who listed several areas wherein she sees progress, then wrote: “So thank you for helping us all stay the course, keep finding our optimism, and keep working for the world we know is possible!”
Because optimism is light-filled, it plays a vital role in a society’s evolvement, and people who view the world as tumultuous and fearful rarely can feel optimistic about what is to come. They don’t know that what they see as upheaval is the clashing of low vibrations with high and the latter are gaining dominance on the way to prevailing overall. They don’t know that this “storm before the calm,” so to say, is purposeful, it is ushering in powerful changes worldwide. You do know this, and talking with people about substantive changes afoot is a splendid way to let the light of your optimism shine into their lives.
There are heartening stories in Internet articles and some publications, and evidence is close to home, too. Growing numbers of community groups are uplifting the lives of those nearby who are in need and are supporting local visionary leadership. World transformation doesn’t trickle down from national governments, dear family—it starts with you, your friends and neighbors and soars upward.
“There are some good signs that positive things are starting but then there is Putin and Russian trolls controlling the media news. What is Putin up to? I know Matthew has said he is not a part of the Cabal but he seems to be able to kill without remorse or thought. Not what one would call a good guy! Could he comment about what is happening there?” President Putin has done some unsavory things, to be sure, but he is not guilty of the many accusations promulgated by the Illuminati in retaliation for his refusal to cooperate with them.
In most cases their minions have been responsible for what they have attributed to him or his country—recently it was meddling in other countries’ elections and the poisoning of a father and daughter in the United Kingdom. Putin is justified in denying involvement, but global opinion is “guilty as charged,” the verdict pronounced by the Illuminati. And, pointing a finger at Russian trolls for influencing people’s opinions and exacerbating divisiveness is giving the trolls credit for what the Illuminati are doing via their politicians and corrupted mainstream and social media.
Putin does not want a cold war, much less “hot” ones that they want the West to wage with Russia and Iran and perhaps North Korea, where they will try however they can to prevent a peaceful outcome of multinational talks. Not only do battlefields need the machinery of war manufactured by their corporations, but they need the low vibrations of violence and fear to sustain their very existence. Thus, punishing the Russian president for what he wouldn’t do for them has become what he is doing to them: He is one of the principals cooperating behind closed doors to end their international web of heinous activities, hold them legally accountable, and achieve a world at peace.
Understanding personal ascension is important, and information in previous messages has given rise to more questions. “If some of us ascend with Gaia and other family members choose not to, how does that physically happen? Do we simply disappear from their world?” Ascending with Earth is not nearly as dramatic as a sudden disappearance that leaves family wondering where that member went.
Ascension is not abruptly departing the planet and arriving in a sublime physical world, it is advancing from third density to fourth during the Earth lifetime. It is a gradual process of light absorption whose two effects happen in tandem—growing spiritually and consciously and the changing of carbon-based cells into the crystalline that enable bodies to survive in the vibratory levels where Earth is heading. Persons who absorb light will remain on the planet throughout the life span chosen in their soul contracts, then transition to Nirvana in a fourth density status.
To ascend or not to ascend isn’t a conscious choice. It is a matter of how closely free will decisions adhere to the soul contract, which is part of the pre-birth agreement made by souls that will have major roles in each others Earth lifetimes. Formed in unconditional love, these agreements provide growth opportunities for all of the participants.
“If someone on the ascension pathway dies before reaching fourth density status, how will that affect their life in Nirvana and next incarnation?” It will be the same as now. The energy of thoughts, feelings and actions throughout the lifetime determine the part of Nirvana to which persons are drawn energetically, and each part provides the specific learning that each soul needs. An individual who had mastered most karmic lessons can complete the rest in Nirvana, where it also prepares its personage for incarnation; that can be a return to Earth when the Golden Age is in full bloom or the same kind of stimulating lifetime in some other vibrant fourth density world.
“How can we know if people we love will ascend or even if we ourselves will?” There is no way to know if people you love, or anyone else, will ascend, and actions are not reliable indicators. Someone who treats another harshly may be following to the letter what both of them chose in a pre-birth agreement, while an individual widely acclaimed for philanthropy may be sharing ill-gotten wealth and doing so only for fame and praise. That is why we and other messengers from the light often advise, “Do not judge anyone.” Also, life span has little to do with ascension. A soul may leap forward in spiritual and conscious awareness during a brief lifetime and someone who becomes a centenarian may not grow an iota in that respect.
As for knowing your own ascension progress, a sense of genuine peacefulness, lightheartedness, about how your decisions have affected your life and the lives of others signifies advancement. And please do not think that ascension requires an error-free life! While striving for such is an admirable endeavor, perfection exists only within the pure love-light essence of Creator.
“Matthew, there is much talk of enlightened souls transcending to a duplicate planet or another dimension, while the less fortunate endure the tribulation. Can you offer your insight and a timeframe?” There is no duplicate planet where enlightened souls go, but they do enter another dimension as they journey with Earth into increasingly high vibrations. And, at the end of the lifetime choice in the soul contract, they enter the part of Nirvana that corresponds to their level of enlightenment.
It could be said that the “less fortunate”—let us say, individuals who consistently refuse the light that is available to all—will “endure tribulation” when they experience life-print review in Nirvana and see how seriously they departed from their soul contracts. Achieving the balanced experiencing that is needed to evolve is the choice and goal of every soul in every physical lifetime. There is another factor in this. Nirvana is ascending with Earth, and when the planet reaches vibratory levels where bodies without crystalline cells lose viability, the souls will transition to some third density civilization’s spirit world, where they will prepare personages for incarnation in that civilization.
Personal ascension is at each soul’s pace, and those differ so widely that it would be foolhardy to even guess what a realistic timeframe might be. Furthermore, in addition to souls’ limitless opportunities to embark upon or to advance along the ascension pathway, during this unprecedented era on Earth another advantage is available—submitting a petition at soul level for an extension of the contract’s longevity clause. Because that would affect the lives of all others in the pre-birth agreement, they must unanimously approve or deny the petition. When there is reasonable expectation that additional time will result in the person’s ascension progress, the request is approved.
What we can say regarding a time-frame is, now that the decade of delay in societal advancement has ended, souls are awakening and joining the world’s “Love Revolution.” The unequaled power of love is the key to creating a world at peace and life in harmony with Nature, and the myriad ways love is manifested will be illuminating to newcomers and a helpful reminder for long-time lightworkers. [May 1, 2012 message comprehensively covers light-love, and May 23, 2015 message contains part of that.]
“What will happen to individuals who haven’t heard about planetary and personal ascension?” Of the seven and a half billion people residing on Earth, only a comparative handful have heard about ascension. It isn’t necessary that the masses know Earth is ascending for her to continue her steady course into lighter energy planes, and many people who are living in godly ways are on an ascension pathway without knowing it. We are speaking of conscious knowledge—humankind know at soul level about Earth’s ascension and individuals know at that level if they are evolving or not. In time, everyone there will be consciously aware of planetary and personal ascension.
In our last message we said that the NRA—National Rifle Association—in the United States was formed by the Illuminati. We want to explain correctly that it is one of many local, national and international groups formed for constructive reasons that the Illuminati infiltrated and subverted to serve their malevolent purposes. They have done the same with developments intended to be beneficial, notably vaccines, agricultural methods, information sources and technologies. Wherever Illuminati have taken control, their influence is fast unraveling—the low vibrations of dark intent cannot survive in the light intensity that Earth is approaching.
“Our discussion group has mixed opinions about the Olympics in South Korea. Would Matthew be so kind as to give us the perspective from his station?” It is our pleasure to do this. From arrival until departure of people from participating countries, the energy emanating from Pyeongchang sparkled like a sea of diamonds. The brilliance was the high vibrations of the extraordinary athletes’ thrill of participating, joy of medal winners and the respect of their competitors, excitement of performers in the opening and closing ceremonies, admiration and awe of spectators on site and TV viewers energetically connected with the games.
We are not overlooking that this year’s Olympics, like those before them, entailed lavish spending of funds that could have been better used to benefit all of the citizenry. However, pride in being selected to host the games, in their own outstanding athletes and the production of spectacular ceremonies merits consideration, and this year’s games had a unique aftermath. Energy of prior Olympics drifted into a neutral pool in the universe; energy generated in Pyeongchang merged with the most intense light in Earth’s recorded history.
Beloved family, light beings throughout this universe honor your steadfastness in assisting the peoples of Earth and support you with the power of unconditional love.
LOVE and PEACE
