It is the destiny of humanity to ascend, and you all have chosen to be a part of that journey. This is a time of much deliberation because there are so many beings in the universe who want to help humanity. Now, in the same way that when you are teaching a child to tie his or her shoes it is better that the child does the majority of the tying, in your case, it is better that you all do the majority of the heavy lifting.
Now, what we mean by that is your pathway to ascension involves facing a lot of heaviness. It is why you are seeing so much negativity in many different forms on the planet right now. You cannot just have beings landing their ships and making everything better for you, removing those in power who are not of the light. You need instead to face all that is in front of you and take the emotional hits that you are taking.
Some of you are doing this in your personal lives, with family members, spouses, children, people who are challenging you in all of the many ways that they can. Others are more globally focused, and taking the hits from seeing the bombings and the shootings, the hate speech, and the divisiveness of your polarized society.
Here’s how we have decided to support you. We are going to continue to transmit unconditional love to the human race in order to activate more of it within you. But it is up to you whether you accept that unconditional love. At times you have to let go of whatever it is you are focusing upon that has you clenching up so that you can relax and receive.
And when you are open enough to do so, you will feel the love and light that is coming to you from the higher realms, and you will be able to look upon your fellow humans through the eyes of love.
We are the Arcturian Council, and we have enjoyed connecting with you.”
