SaLuSa made an interesting set of observations in his last message (April 4, 2011), which I’d like to expand on if you’ll permit me. He tells us why it is that the galactics are not concerned with judging the dark ones and we could afford to learn from what he says. He informs us:
“The dark Ones are at last capitulating, realising that they need a way out of a predicament of their own making. Through our allies that is being offered, and once they are no longer in a position to interfere with progress, we can really become more open in helping you. Making them responsible for their acts against Humanity is not directly our concern, because there is no escape from eventually having to answer to the higher spiritual hierarchy that oversees your evolution. In other words, just like you they will have to experience the effects of their deeds and fully understand the outcome.
“We can tell you that once you return to the higher dimensions, and know the truth about life and its purpose you are more than eager to atone for your mistakes. We must stress again that there is no punishment as you understand it, and no judgment and the final outcome is in the hands of the soul concerned. The karma resulting from each life time is twofold, and firstly keeps you on the path back to the Light, whilst ensuring that you learn from your mistakes.” (1)
Perhaps we can take his comments point by point.
“The dark Ones are at last capitulating, realising that they need a way out of a predicament of their own making.”
I imagine that what he is referring to here is that the Light has foiled each move the dark has made and left the dark increasingly in a corner. Given that there is no way out, the dark are now realizing that they must capitulate.
“Through our allies that is being offered, and once they are no longer in a position to interfere with progress, we can really become more open in helping you.”
Nothing probably illustrates the dark’s interference with progress better than the Sendai earthquake and tsunami. And yet, as monstrous as it was, even that has not sent the world into a tailspin and was in fact, we are told, contained by the Light.
“Making them responsible for their acts against Humanity is not directly our concern, because there is no escape from eventually having to answer to the higher spiritual hierarchy that oversees your evolution. In other words, just like you they will have to experience the effects of their deeds and fully understand the outcome.”
Hearing these words we undoubtedly think of a form of court of law that the dark will have to appear in. But I don’t think he means this. Rather I think he is referring to the guidance that higher beings provide every soul when the individual turns to face the consequences of its deeds in Earth life.
If i can now draw on sources used in the books, New Maps of Heaven and First Contact, (2) to illustrate some of the other comments SaLuSa makes, here is the unnamed teacher of Betty Bethards describing the process of directing the soul in its consideration of its life deeds. That consideration is generally known on the spirit planes as “the Judgment”:
“[Knowledge of this past life] is shown to you by a group of people. There is no term for this group that you would understand fully. Let us say a loving board of directors. They include your guidance and those who have walked with you and worked with you during this incarnation from the other side.”
“In other words, people who were out of the body during your life, walking through the experiences with you, are the only ones who would be allowed to see some of your akashic record. (3)
Here Matthew Ward describes the role of the board of spiritual directors in the Judgment:
“In this intimate review the soul evaluates how well it learned the lessons presented during the previous lifetime. A lax assessment of which lessons were thoroughly learned and which were not may be addressed by the Council or other highly evolved beings whose recommendations are meant to assist that soul’s preparation for the next incarnation.” (4)
Knowing this, SaLuSa and the galactics do not concern themselves with the process of reviewing the dark’s deeds. They leave this process to the spiritual direction that exists for every soul as a part of “the Judgment.”
“We can tell you that once you return to the higher dimensions, and know the truth about life and its purpose you are more than eager to atone for your mistakes.”
In most cases, the spirit cannot reach an incarnate friend or relative that he or she has harmed and must either wait for them to come to spirit or else find another way of making amends for harm.
On a rare occasion a spirit can communicate. Winifred Coombe Tennant was a well known medium in the early 20th Century who worked as “Mrs. Willett” for the Society for Psychical Research. After she transitioned, she dictated a letter to her son Alexander through Geraldine Cummins, which illustrates the manner in which Winifred became aware of the harm done her son through the Judgment and how she wishes to expiate her mistakes. She writes:
“My dear, dear Alexander,
“It is my urgent need to write to you on a private matter that concerns us two. I have a humiliating confession to make and must cast away all pride. … I have been a witness of the film of memory, the record of my life. … There are, as you may know, underground chambers of the mind. … I have … had a dismaying revelation of one of them. I feel I must share it with you or in future I shall have no peace of mind. …
“The year before you were born … my little girl Daphne died. Then … came the lovely hope of another baby-girl to replace Daphne. Oh, I was so bitterly disappointed when I learnt this happy dream was a deluding fancy. … I repulsed my baby-son, visited any bitterness on his tiny innocent self. It was more in thought than in act. But at that very early age the babe is subconsciously acutely sensible of the mother’s emotions towards himself. … It produce in you a certain shyness and caution in regard to your apparently capricious mother.
“Later … I felt remorseful and went from one extreme to the other and became devoted…. But it was too late. My tiny boy, just beginning to walk, was independent, withdrew from my kisses, rejected my impulsive, violent affection. He was deep down alarmed by it. So eventually that primitive mother became hurt and annoyed and turned away from him just when she might have won by her persistence and gentleness. Thus a psychological barrier began to grow between us. …
“I see now that I was a possessive mother. … You, a sturdy little boy, refused to be owned. … Quite often I have thought evilly of you … because you were completely independent of me. … I have even in these posthumous messages written, I believe, false things about you. But these were all derived from my baffled emotional vanity because I failed in any sense to possess you.
“In this life when studying our past memories we assume the mood of the time in which these memories were happening. So I beg of you to remove from your mind any cruel, false thing I wrote of you in a posthumous message. … Mine has been the initial offence all along. If you have felt a barrier between us, I beg you to forgive me my grievous fault. … Dear sons, I send you from the hither world my true love in equal shares.” (5)
“We must stress again that there is no punishment as you understand it, and no judgment and the final outcome is in the hands of the soul concerned.”
The prophet Malachi, who adopted the pseudonym “Imperator” when he spoke through Rev. Stainton Moses in the 1870s, give us a general description of the Judgment that illustrates what SaLuSa has described. His language is somewhat ornate but he does suggest how the spirit is responsible for his own past-life review and for the expiation of the mistakes which he sees by way of that process.
“Though there be no formal judgment such as has been imagined, at a far-distant day, in [the] presence of an assembled universe, when the Recording Angel shall produce the Books of Doom, and the Christ shall sit in judgment, and shall condemn the sinner to an everlasting hell; though there be none of this, yet … every act is registered, every thought recorded, every habit known as a factor in the future character.
“We would show you that the judgment of condemnation needs no paraphernalia of assize, but is conducted in the silent recesses of the soul itself. No judge is there but the voice of Spirit communing with itself, and reading its own doom. No books but the records of conscience; no hell but the flame of remorse that shall eat into the soul and purge it as by fire. …
“Man makes his own future, stamps his own character, suffers for his own sins, and must work out his own salvation.” (6)
Matthew Ward served as a “transition assister” and so is intimately familiar with the Judgment. I’d like to close this explanation with a substantial passage from him in which he explains various aspects of the process. He explains the “lifeprints,” or “lifelong movie” that the soul reviews, the sequence of events leading up to the Judgment, the subjective experience of it, the security of the records, and so on.
“Akashic Records contain complete, accurate, trustworthy accounts of all universe-wide happenings within eternity and All That Is. Lifeprints, which are as unique as your fingerprints and more impervious to alteration, form each soul’s records, and each lifeprint is a separate file in the Akashic Records.
“A lifeprint is like a lifelong movie, omitting not a single aspect or instant. The information it contains, which automatically and indelibly is registered in energy form, is every thought, every action, and the consequences of every action throughout the lifetime of the person.
“Every action is registered as the deed itself plus the intent and all feelings associated with it. Not only are the person’s feelings about every action and its results recorded, but the feelings of all the people whose lives were affected by those actions.
“After the soul has recovered stability from the previous lifetime and is nourished spiritually and psychically, it is completely aware of its cumulative soul. It is this cumulative soul, with its collective wisdom and knowledge and spiritual growth of all personage lifetimes, that reviews the lifeprint.
“The reviewing process is felt exactly as those feelings were experienced not only by the person, but all the people who were affected by his every action. So you can see that it is quite an experience!
“The cumulative soul’s judgment of its previous lifetime is the ONLY judgment of it. You have heard that only God is your judge and you have heard that even God does not judge. Either way, this refers to the lifeprint review.
“Because we all are fragments of God and therefore inextricably connected, it is accurate to say that only God, in each personage, judges. And it is just as accurate to say that He doesn’t judge at all, because only the cumulative soul whose last personage lifetime is under review judges it.” (7)
The lifeprint can also be used to plan the lessons to be learned in the next liftime, as Matthew explains.
“The lifeprint review also identifies lessons remaining, thus enabling the soul to choose those it wishes to experience in its next lifetime. This entails examining karmic connections and selecting a family to be born into for the genetic and beginning environmental influences.” (8)
Matthew tells us that lifeprints cannot be accessed by just anyone. The soul’s permission is needed for someone to read them.
“Furthermore, lifeprints cannot be accessed easily for examination, and never merely out of curiosity, For the sanctity of each soul’s experiences, permission to enter frivolously is denied by means of that energy encoding.
“As a transition assister, I have valid reason for entering the records of the souls whose lifetime information I need for maximum help to them.
“The needs of each arrival I assist and my function carry reciprocal energy that constitutes his implied consent to my entering his record, and our energy meshing is my automatic access code to it.
“Part of the intergalactic warring has been to gain dominance over the records, for either annihilation or to establish a new coding system that would allow the visitors to manipulate the records. Ashtar is the oversoul energy commanding the forces that operate and protect the records. I cannot imagine the mechanics involved in their responsibility for an awesome mass of energy in its countless forms, all the way from each soul’s records up to the coalescence of All That Is.” (9)
The last comment SaLuSa makes is about the nature of karma.
“The karma resulting from each life time is twofold, and firstly keeps you on the path back to the Light, whilst ensuring that you learn from your mistakes.”
Many people consider karma to be punishment for acts of commission or omission. But SaLuSa says that the function of karma is to serve as a means of keeping the soul journeying on towards God and to ensure that a soul learns from its mistakes on its journey toward Self-realization.
The first function we could compare to the action of a pingpong player’s paddle. It keeps the ball from going too far to the left or right and sends it back over the table in the desired direction. That is the function of keeping us on the path back to the Light. At the same time, karma also helps us to learn in what way we may have been mistaken, often by obliging us to experience what we have made others experience.
SaLuSa has therefore outlined for us here the treatment that will be meted out to the dark, in the face of which the galactics feel no need to insert themselves either in the judgment process or in the dark’s education or rehabilitation.
