“Days of Darkness,” “Days of Nothing,” and Ascension

Pat W. has pointed out that Matthew Ward has said that there will be no “three days of darkness” at the end of this cycle. That’s true. In the meantime, the Federation of Light, through Blossom Goodchild, has said that there will be “three days of nothing,” which they interpret as not being “days of darkness” but a time during which we will see the Light from within.

Not very much has been said about what will actually happen at the time of Ascension or what Ascension operationally means.  The Federation of Light point out to us that they will have had quite a spell to be at our sides and I assume that means that they will have mentored us on these matters and will see us through the experience.  But what the experience involves has not been dealt with at any length.

I shall in the next few days be posting a couple of Matthew’s messages in which he deals with the general subject of Ascension, which I’ve come across in the course of researching this question. For now, the most I can do is to place the passages from Matthew alongside an elided version of the passage from Blossom’s Federation of Light.  How the two fit with each other is not at this moment known to me. I’ll have to wait further comment on it from the Company of Light.

Matthew on the “Three Days of Darkness”

Feb. 27, 2009: “I have been asked about stasis and three days of darkness on the planet. By its very definition—a stoppage or cessation or stillness—stasis cannot occur because the universe is in constant motion, a balancing act if you will, and nothing in the universe can remain still while all the rest within that unfathomable vastness is in motion. As for three days of darkness, from this vantage point, that could happen only if the sun suddenly leaves your solar system or some gargantuan celestial body positions itself so as to block the sun’s light from reaching Earth.” (1)

Aug. 13, 2010: There is no validity to the notion that immediately prior to Earth’s entry into fourth density there will be three days of darkness or, as other reports have it, three days of burning sun. (2)

Jan. 15, 2011: “Now that holiday observances are over and your thoughts are back into routine tasks, various misconceptions about the year 2012 also are back. Beliefs that the major reforms required to usher in Earth’s Golden Age cannot be accomplished in the two short years remaining are paralleling beliefs that darkness will continue right up until the end of 2012, then abruptly disappear. Beliefs that three days of darkness or some other dramatic occurrence will herald the beginning of the Golden Age. Beliefs that profound geographic changes will precede Earth’s entry into fourth density. Beliefs that two Earths will emerge out of the ascension process.  Beliefs that going along with Earth into the Golden Age is the pinnacle of spiritual growth. Beliefs that after 2012, your world will be unchanged henceforth.” (3)

The Federation of Light on the “Three to Five Days of Nothingness”

“We would advise that at such a time when what you think is darkness is to occur … it is only so if you choose to look at it that way … in darkness. We would speak of it otherwise. We would say it is a Golden opportunity to rise up into the Light. For in that time when one cannot see in front of their eyes there will be great opportunity … unlike any other one has had in this life time … to SEE THE LIGHT from within. For it is that LIGHT that will allow one to interpret what is taking place from within another place of themselves.

“So … there will be the three days of ‘nothing’ then?

“Approximately in your timing … we would encourage you to KNOW that this is to take place. It is a pivotal marking towards that which is to follow. For as the NEW DAWN arises after such ‘nothingness’ … one will wake up to a much different world.

“In what way ?

“During the time of ‘nothingness’ … there shall be an energy entering your planet that has been ‘saved’ … shall we say … for that very occasion. …

“When this time is upon you … the energy that you are aware of within yourself at that time … shall increase with great aplomb! We are surmising that by such a time … taking into account the way in which so many of you are ‘coming into your own’ … that this will be of great benefit to the planet.

“When the time comes for this ‘transition’ it is of great importance that one accepts that ALL IS WELL. We cannot say exactly how long it will last, yet we approximate around three to five days of your Earthly time. During this time a ‘change’ will be taking place within you and around you, yet you will not ‘see’ it … for you shall see ‘nothing’ with your physical eyes at that time. …

“Your world will be changing into its new form. Therefore, that which is around you will be transforming in energy also. This transitional time is of great consequence to the entry into the GOLDEN AGE. As long as YOU KNOW YOU ARE LOVE … then there is nothing to fear.

“When we say ‘portal’ … we do not mean that you will be rushed with great gusto at 1000 miles an hour into a different dimension. And yet we chose this word wisely. For indeed that time will be allowing you to enter a portal of sorts. …

“The energy that you will be within … the emotion that you choose to FEEL … during that time … will be greatly heightened. Therefore … imagine … if you choose to focus on the deepest LOVE … will this not be the most three – five incredible days that you have ever experienced?

“With respect we would say … that you in your innocence are automatically perceiving this time to be one of fear because you cannot imagine what living without any form of Light will be like … for such a lengthy time. Yet we stress to you … there will be Light … YOURS!!! Each and everyone of you who allow yourself to turn inwards will be uniting with the energy of Light that is coming in ‘through the portal’. This will be the most exhilarating experience you have yet encountered upon your earth … and we say to you also that by the time this happens … much to exhilarate the senses will have taken place. Which will have allowed many more souls to awaken by the time this ‘wonder’ occurs. What takes place within you, blending with the energy coming through and by ‘sending out your bottles of LOVE’ to the very air you breath … will ascertain as to what vantage point your Golden Age will present itself to you when ‘The sun comes up’.

“Is that how this time will come to an end? With the sun coming up ? Will we look upon THE NEW DAWN? (whooh! Rush of emotion!!)

“Loved Ones of Earth … indeed this is so. We wish you to understand that this ‘topic’ we have spoken of is not going to take place tomorrow. By the time all is in place for it to do so … so much will have changed within you and upon your planet. We, who are speaking to you now … will no longer be strangers from afar. …

“There will be nothing to fear. ONLY GREAT JOY … in the KNOWING that when the sun rises you will be stepping through into your NEW WORLD … which you ‘are now’ and ‘will have’ created. It is up to you. …

“For those who allow themselves to FEEL and be open to the LOVE that is coming in … they then become part of it. They ‘remember’ that this was to take place and accept it instantly. This will happen to many.

“What about those who spend the entire time in fear? What will happen to them during that time and when the sun rises?

“Different scenarios for different cases. As you say in your world ‘horses for courses’. For want of a better way to explain what we desire. There will be some who become so afraid of their own shadow … by that we mean … afraid of who they are and the way in which they have chosen to ‘live/exist’ … that they will chose to leave the planet either by ‘natural’ means or otherwise. There will be those who through living actually within their deepest fear … that they then awaken from it. Words, words, words, words … so much that we are unable to divulge because it simply cannot be explained in your understanding.

“Yet we would state that ‘YOU ARE ONE’. This is a world of great LOVE that you are moving into. Those souls who have chosen to live in it … will live in it … and be of it. Those who still have learning to do before they can enter will be elsewhere … until such time when they KNOW they are worthy of it and understand who they are. There is not one that shall be left behind. Not one. Each shall be moved into the place of understanding which they have allowed themselves to reach.

“The pathway of LOVE never ends, dearest ones. Always will you walk upon it … there is no rush … just positioning. This choice comes from you. How you are positioned along the pathway does not always mean that you have to walk every step. Sometimes it can be that an angel lifts you for a time and puts you down in your new place … for your soul was able to ‘jump’ ahead due to a particular state of ‘getting it’ and therefore ‘understanding’ allowed one to ‘take a short cut’.”

Some aspects of this description are already known, such as the fact that whatever one’s attitudes and beliefs are at the time of Ascension determines what one will encounter, etc.  But the rest will be communicated, I assume, at what the Company of Light conceives of as the right time. I feel no urgency over the matter and no difficulty waiting. Everything I’ve seen so far has me believe that we are in the best of hands.
