I don’t intend to review the year’s events but just to discuss the matter of Ascension itself.
I remember how surprised I was to hear Matthew Ward say just prior to 21/12/12: “Those who are expecting a dramatic event to occur on December 21st [will be surprised] when nothing of dynamic proportions happens that day or any other in that same narrow timeframe.” (1)
I probably should not have been. This statement was no different from what Matthew had been saying for some years previously:
Feb. 14, 2010: “The usual date of December 31, 2012, will be much like the previous and the following days – that is, except for New Year’s Eve celebrations. The differences between life in this moment and in the Golden Age will be amazing and magnificent, but life will not differ dramatically from one day to the next as Earth continues on her journey through fourth density and on into fifth.” (2.)
Aug. 13, 2010: “Please remember that ascension is a process that has been ongoing for about seven decades, so do not expect a dramatic occurrence to herald the first day of the Golden Age. January 1, 2013, often considered to be The Date, will be little different from the day preceding or following it.” (3)
Jan. 15, 2011: “To dispel beliefs born of misconceptions, we start by assuring you that all essential reforms to rid your world of darkness will be completed in good time and in stages, not in one fell swoop at the end of calendar year 2012. Nothing profound will happen immediately prior to Earth’s entry into her Golden Age; the last days of 2012 will be similar to the first days of 2013.” (4)
The Company of Heaven recognized our disappointment. Saul said:
“Many of you are feeling tired, angry, and depressed, almost as though you had been short-changed, conned, or even swindled by those who are telling you of the wonders that await your awakening. It seems that you have been waiting and waiting and waiting. The waiting seems to have been interminable, so it is no wonder that you are feeling upset and that your doubts and anxieties have been intensifying.
“However, the end is in sight, and the joy that will replace your present life experience will cause you ecstasy as you finally understand completely what has been going, and why.” (5)
SaLuSa also encouraged us:
“It is pleasing to see how quickly you have set aside your disappointment at the nature of Ascension as experienced on the 21st December. After such a long period working towards it, it is natural that you expected it to lift you up considerably more than it did. Yet you have been lifted into a higher vibrational level as some of you are now realizing.” (6)
And Sanat faced into the issue with the greatest candor:
“It is important that we talk about this issue of disappointment, discouragement and need. Yes, even on this side, we understand what human need is. And injury. And that is far more important than simply rushing ahead and pretending that this didn’t happen or didn’t work. …
“You are turning to us and saying, ‘What you have promised has not come through, and what you are giving us is not enough.’ That message is heard and acted upon, in ways that are different for each one of you. Yes, including and before and after the healing that needs to take place. What you feel you are doing is working with a fractured relationship, a relationship in which you have been promised that you will ascend.” (7)
He revealed that the Company of Heaven thought it best not to warn us:
“So why did we not warn you that you might be disappointed? Because the energy, the forward thrust of what you were creating together with us, was so strong that we had no desire, particularly in the unfoldment of the Mother’s plan, to say, ‘Wait a minute, and stop. Let us take time out and breathe.’ Because that would have … hmm … you have a saying, ‘put a wrench in the works.'” (8)
The postponement wasn’t sought by the Company of Heaven this time. Apparently, at a soul level, we sought it. We wanted more of the collective to come with us than would have had we ascended on 21/12/12. Archangel Michael explains:
“So, now we come into the present time. And yes, humanity, in a very mature, expansive position has said, ‘We wish to have the opportunity. We wish to ascend as one community in the unity of heart, in the unity of purpose. Because that is why each and every one of us came.’ And that plea was heard and received by the Mother, and the plan given flexibility, altered somewhat to accommodate the full request, this prayer.” (9)
The pause is not indefinite, he tells us.
“The hiatus that has been created by the collective desire of humanity to go forward in this undertaking of magnificence, … is not indefinite. The plan of the Mother does not get put on hold, on pause, indefinitely.” (10)
This was not the first time the schedule had been revised. The Earth might have ascended in 2000 but it was seen that more would ascend if the event were postponed. And in this latest turn of events, the soul voice of the collective consciousness expressed its desire that the event be postponed.
Earth was to ascend in the times of Atlantis and that event ended in catastrophe. Only individuals ascended. Gaia did not, but waited for us to be ready. SaLuSa tells us:
“Bear in mind Dear Ones that in Atlantean times they were also very advanced technologically, and had for example developed the laser beam. It was used in such a way that it caused a weakening of the Earth’ s crust that broke up, and Atlantis finally disappeared under the waves of the Atlantic Ocean.
“You are now at a similar point in your experiences, as the Atlanteans were in their end times. Indeed they developed in a very similar way to you, using advanced technology obtained from Extraterrestrials, putting it to misuse and personal gain. The country that is the U.S. is largely populated by those souls who were in Atlantis in its demise, and the challenge has been to see out this cycle without destroying the Earth. …
“You will therefore understand, that we cannot take away your opportunity to overcome the weaknesses that have caused your downfall in ancient times. It is not however all left up to you, and as we have explained previously we can help in ways that often prevent matters getting out of hand. Total destruction of the Earth will not be allowed, and we protect Mother Earth and the human civilization, by limiting the extent to which it occurs.” (11)
While the extraterrestrials would have saved Gaia in this latest round, we the population barely escaped Atlantis’ fate, he tells us: “Where you may have suffered the same fate as the fabled civilisations Atlantis and Lemuria, you have risen up just in time to avert another major catastrophe.” (12)
