With loving greetings from all souls at this station, this is Matthew. Evolving in spiritual and conscious awareness is a self-discovery process that removes one layer after another of forgetfulness about your very being, Creator’s love-light energy. That will continue until you remember your Beginnings and return to Creator Source.
What is going on throughout your world is a different kind of discovery process. The combined light beamed to Earth from powerful civilizations and the light you generate has been exposing one layer after another of darkness. That will continue until every layer has been vanquished and its energy transmuted into light.
Numerous times during the seventeen years of our messages we have said their purpose is to offer enlightenment, spiritual guidance and encouragement. In this moment, encouragement may be the most helpful to all who are distressed because the exposure process is showing little evidence of progress and no official acknowledgement.
We want to assure you that a great deal is progressing on target behind the scenes, and we want to uplift all who are feeling like these dear lightworkers: “I do not plan on reincarnating on this planet ever again!!” “I’m old, tired and my patience has been used up.” “I promise to do my service, and when it is finished, I can’t wait to go home—and I am NEVER coming back!” “I’m exhausted… I want Matthew to tell me WHY I chose this miserable planet to incarnate.”
This is a layer of forgetfulness that is only temporary. You don’t remember that when you eagerly volunteered to come to Earth and help the civilization awaken, you knew life in a third density world would be difficult. You knew, too, that you were chosen when many, many others were not because your multiple lifetime experiencing would provide the spiritual strength, wisdom and perseverance to surmount obstacles you would encounter.
You don’t remember that you knew billions of souls would choose to complete third density karmic lessons during your Earth incarnation and those lessons would entail widespread hardships and suffering. You also knew how joyful those souls would be after transitioning to spirit life and realizing they had attained the balanced experiencing they needed to evolve. Further, you knew that you would advance by helping universal family members on Earth manifest the better world they want— and, dear brothers and sisters, you are indeed leaping forward!
A number of you have written about “feeling alone” because friends and family give no credibility to what you know is true. Another reason you were selected to help Earth’s peoples when so many other volunteers were not is, you do know that never are you alone! You just need to remember that myriad guides and angels always are with you, eager to assist, and so are dear ones living in spirit worlds. You are known, loved and honored by all light beings in this universe, and entire civilizations are beaming light to help you along your pathway.
More down to Earth, so to say, when truths come forth, people who in this moment ridicule what you have told them will have their minds widely opened. It will behoove you to refrain from saying aloud, “I told you so!” as tempting as that could be. And, you may discover that acquaintances you never suspected could be kindred spirits have been all along.
Now then, the successively higher vibratory levels that are exposing layers of darkness also are changing carbon-based cells into crystalline in all souls who are absorbing the light, and both of those are developments for rejoicing. However, energy changes can cause disconcerting physical, emotional and mental effects, and more than a year of severe restrictions has intensified them—the populace is dealing with “double stress.” [November 20, 2017 message mentions the effects and offers suggestions to lessen them.]
We empathize with all of you dear brothers and sisters who are feeling distressed! We lived in civilizations where the battle between the light and dark forces raged, and we experienced pain, setbacks, anguish and anger. The knowledge and inner strength we gained in those lifetimes is why we were chosen to help other civilizations discover their power to change their lives and worlds for the better.
What we experienced applies equally to you—simply, we remember those lifetimes and you don’t. But you do know the source of the severe restrictions is vastly different from the grand benefits heralded by ever-rising vibrations, and most people don’t. Consequently, they’re feeling frustrated, anxious and despondent, and when they realize they have been lied to, rage and guilt will be common reactions.
So it is that steadfastness in the light is as essential to your wellbeing as to the wellbeing and forward movement of the society. Your light will help foundering souls replace negative feelings with optimism and determination to transform their world.
Let us mention another reason you were chosen when many others were not: You know who you are. You know you are ever so much more than a person with ideas, beliefs, experiences, personality, skills, talents, desires and accomplishments. Please think of yourself and everyone else, whether or not you admire or agree with them, as who you all are: multidimensional immortal souls, inviolate and independent, yet inseparably interconnected with all other life throughout the cosmos. Each and every life is the love-light essence of Creator Source, the most powerful force in existence.
May 1st was Global Love Day, sponsored by The Love Foundation. Twenty-one years ago the Foundation was established to celebrate humanity’s diversity through education, research and cultural artistry, and to inspire people worldwide to love unconditionally. The “ingredient” of every soul on Earth is Creator’s unconditional love, and we can think of no worthier mission than inspiring people to BE who they ARE.
“My parents who are kindhearted and generous believe people who don’t share their fundamentalist religious beliefs are doomed to eternal hell. I don’t want to upset them so don’t tell them I no longer believe that but feel guilty about my deception. Mainly I’m afraid of what will happen to them when they make transition. How can I convince them to change their judgmental belief?” Our reply to this dear soul applies to everyone who has similar concerns about family or friends.
First we say, the energy of guilt and fear dims your light. Loving your parents without attaching those feelings will lift your spirits and the higher vibrations you send forth will benefit them, too. It isn’t your responsibility or your right to change what they believe. Everyone has the divine right to move toward enlightenment at their own pace, and if beloved persons have chosen a pace slower than yours, please honor their decision.
As for your parents’ transition, like everyone else on Earth, they will make the lightning-swift trip to the part of Nirvana that corresponds to their lifetime energy registration. The match-up, which is in accordance with the universal law of physics, has to do with living in godly ways or not and how closely free will choices adhered to or departed from soul contracts.
Your parents’ kind hearts and generous nature are godly indeed, and you don’t know what they chose in their contracts. Perhaps rigid beliefs are a stabilizing faith after lifetimes of struggling to make sense of what was experienced. Possibly the contracts call for shared convictions to balance lifetimes when opposing religious leaders sent them into battle. Or, in the family’s pre-birth agreement, your parents may have agreed to believe as they do as a means of motivating you to grow spiritually and consciously.
There is more to say about entering Nirvana. Each soul’s unique frequency lets the realm’s welcomers know whose arrival is imminent and each is personally greeted by name. Persons whose etheric bodies or psyches are seriously debilitated are given constant customed treatment by medical assisters, and while they are attaining full strength and wellness, they become aware of this and other realities that are “the afterlife.” To ease introduction to life in spirit for people who do not need that kind of attention, Nirvana will appear to be what they believe comes after “death.”
For instance, individuals who expect a dark void will enter silent nothingness. If persons believe they will waken in an endless field of fragrant flowers, they will. People who believe “the dead” arrive at a magnificent gate where St. Peter is holding a list of names will see him there. Whoever believes heaven is filled with winged angels playing harps suddenly will be in their midst.
Whatever each person expects is holographically reproduced, but since those are “theatrical performances” in a manner of speaking, they cannot last long. Only truth and love can prevail in Nirvana—it is their high vibrations that maintain the stability and flexibility of all parts of the realm.
This is how the actuality of that world might be revealed to a man who was engulfed in the nothingness he anticipated. A diffused light appears in the distance and becomes brighter as it slowly moves toward him. Now he can see someone he loved and, in his mind, was long dead—his grandmother, who died in old age twenty years previously. Appearing as the smiling, white-haired, wrinkle-faced lady he knew, she takes his hand and gently pulls him into the light. During the several days in your concept of time she shows him the realm’s beauty and diversity, gradually she changes into a vibrant young woman. Elderly persons become younger until they reach what you consider “prime” years of early thirties and children grow older until they reach that stage.
Reunions with persons dear to new arrivals always are joyous, but adjustment to Nirvana varies in accordance with people’s beliefs about the “afterlife.” People who quickly remember other lifetimes there are excited about returning. Others are hesitant about living in a world that is different from the one they entered, but as they see the realm’s wondrous offerings, they become active residents. Individuals who cling to their ideas of eternal life in heaven or hell decide to sleep rather than accept something they don’t believe exists; they are lovingly tended until they want to waken and learn about Earth’s spirit world.
To the dear soul who wrote about her parents, whatever they expect the afterlife to be, so it will be at the outset. In time, each will embrace the reality of life in spirit and, like all other residents, plan their next incarnation with the knowledge of cumulative experiences in multiple lifetimes.
Beloved family, all light beings in this universe honor you for helping Earth’s peoples manifest a true heaven on the planet.
LOVE and PEACE
