Please keep in mind that this is the first physical Ascension that has occurred anywhere. In the past people left their bodies to ascend, but not this time around. In a way we’re the experimental planet.
Moreover, ours is the first Ascension in the universe of this current wave of Ascensions, physical or not. So I continue to believe that there is much that is novel about our shift and that the plan is not, in all its respects, set in stone. Well, Sanata Kumara admitted this when he said in Jan. 2013: “There are times when even we are surprised.” (1)
Archangel Michael explains here the process by which this decision was made.
Steve Beckow: Could you tell us more about that process by which the collective decision was communicated to you or communicated by the Mother – and how that all came to eventuate so that readers can have a little more background on that please?
Archangel Michael: Yes, and in very practical terms and in terms of your society you can almost think of it as a vote or a consensus. These are not conscious decisions. But we call it, not an unconscious or subconscious or conscious decision, but a soul decision.
SB: All right
AAM: So within the populace of Earth, of this magnificent Gaia whether they were aware or unaware – every soul has been aware of the Ascension process and the plan to go forward interdimensionally, multidimensionally and to bring the attended adjusted physical form along, and the impact that that would have on not only upon Gaia and amongst yourself, but throughout the omniverse.
As the time grew nearer, much, much progress was made —– and that was something perhaps we’ve not spoken enough about. We’ve talked during our many discussions, prior to December 2012 of the enormous progress the human collective, not just Light workers and Light holders, but the many very positive strides that were being made by humans.
Now that also entailed help shall we say, from this side of things – like containment, some moderate adjustment, the, beaming of love with increasing frequency from moment to moment from the heart of Mother/Father One, as well as your star brothers and sisters, different frequency, different rate of receiving. So much was done.
Now as you know, during our latter conversations, it was still felt that about 30 percent of the population was, shall we say, good to go. Then there was the gray area, and then there were those who were well behind the fence.
Very married to, very connected to, very reliant upon, very much in love with the illusions of the old third dimension.
Now there comes a window and you tended to think of that window – and I do not just mean you personally, I mean you collectively, you who were actively working on such things – as actually being open for well over a year. It then shrunk in November 11, 2012, December 12, 2012, December 21, 2012. But the window was actually quite broad and momentum was gained and being gained every day.
Now on our side, yes, we understand time, but we ask you to bear with us as I try to explain this in ways that will be comprehensible to the readers.
There is an instantaneous moment, (1) and you can think of that moment as a moment within a very elongated process, but there is a moment of soul decision, when either the collective shift takes place – even though some were already through the portal and anchored, but many were not; most were not.
The collective of humanity, the soul-decision consensus, plea vote – however you wish to think of this – the plea went up to ask the Mother, not for a halt, nor even for a pause, that was not the plea. The plea was, we came together as one family, to do this, to make this monumental change that not only changes each of us and our family and Gaia, but has effect so far beyond. We are aware and we choose to make this shift, but not all are completely ready, but we are asking, and it was a request, in that instantaneous moment: May we do it together? And the answer was yes.
The heart plea was the most earnest perhaps that we have ever witnessed from the collective. Now it wasn’t instantaneously put on hold or halted. The process is still very much underway – giving you, but we did not put a timer on it, but you – humanity, your soul collective, said that we want to do this – and we don’t want it (listen to what you are saying to us,) to take hundreds of years or decades.
Just (what is your expression) just give us a chance to get our ducks in a row. And that is exactly what you are doing, and might I say, that you are doing it with surprising rapidity.
So when we say or indicate to you that it was a collective decision – that is what we are saying. It has nothing to do with whether the collective had earned it, whether they were ready. You were ready the moment you incarnated and made the decision to return. So the readiness has always been there on the soul level.
So you say to me – well Michael, Lord what happens if some of those beings are slower than others don’t hurry along. And what I am telling you is that not only we, because we have not stopped doing what we do, but you, each of you, in your own way, as builders and determiners of Nova Earth have stepped up your activity. You have moved it from a point in time to a completion. So you have moved it from a simple event to something you are creating and doing with us.
So you have entered into a much stronger form of partnership and you may see this – you see it in your energy fields, you see it in how you feel, you see it in what you are experiencing, you see it in your level of exhaustion, your ascension symptoms and in what is happening. And yes, I know, you will say to me – Lord: it is still not fast enough. And my brother, I could not agree more with you, but it is still happening.
Does this help?
SB: Yes it does, Lord, and I think it would help us too, and I am very much cognizant of the Channels agreement with you around dates, but the problem that I am having is that earlier you said months. Is that as in less than one year, or is it in more than one year?
AAM: It is around a year.
SB: Around a year. Is it under 2 years?
AAM: We would say yes.
SB: All right, because light workers may get very, very testy, touchy, if we pass a year and something has not happened. We need to try to give them as much certainty as is possible even with all the other factors at play.
AAM: We understand this.
SB: All right. So just to clarify. We’re aiming for less than one year, it may take longer, but it won’t be two years. Is that correct
AAM: Now we are not saying that this is ironclad, but that is the 99% percent likelihood, yes.
SB: All right, then to again clarify, the 99% likelihood is that it’s under 2 years?
AAM: That is correct
SB: And we are aiming for under one year. Is that correct?
AAM: You are all aiming, and so are we. It is the Olympic sprint.

(2) The “event” that Ashtar and others speak of as happening in late September is not Ascension but another stair step. It may turn out not to be felt overly much within our conscious awareness. It may be a shift that happens at a body level or a level below conscious awareness. But Ascension itself is estimated to occur between Feb. 2014 – Feb. 2015. However as with everything global, change is always a possibility, as we’ve seen with Disclosure, the revaluation of global currencies, and other events.
