We look today at whether our spouses and children will ascend and what we need to consider if they choose not to go with us.
Will our children ascend?
Steve Beckow: I’m under the impression that children below a certain age are regarded as innocent and will automatically ascend with their parents. Is that a true statement?
Archangel Michael: Yes. Most children are of pure heart. They are of love. And that is particularly true of the children that have come in in the last 20 years. That is why so many of them are completely disillusioned and feel disenfranchised. They don’t understand what on earth they are doing here and how they got here. Because they still have that core of innocence and of love. There may be some confusion, but they are still in that state of innocence. They are like little cherubs. … So, under eleven.
SB: Under eleven. Okay. Will children who appear not to understand ascension or issues dealing with ascension still ascend?
AAM: Yes. The issue isn’t intellectual. It is a heart decision. It is a heart knowing. Each of you on Earth have had situations where your guide or guardian angel has nudged you and you say, I’d better get out of here, this doesn’t feel right. And so you leave a place where, perhaps, danger is lurking. That is the sensation many of the children will have: “I don’t think I’m going to stay here; I think I’m going to go.” And it will be that simple.

We know that with Ascension approaching some parents express concern about their children, and that is understandable. Let us explain that they are as every other soul at this time, following their life plan. They chose who to be with and they would have known about their future as well as yours. Look upon them as souls simply becoming acclimatised to Earth life, with as much potential if not more than yours.
Certainly over the last 30 years or more, many souls have been chosen to join you at this special time because of their highly evolved state. They are needed to bring out their Light, and help the awakening of other souls whose consciousness levels need lifting up. The whole process of Ascension has required an army of Lightworkers to put it on a firm footing.
There is in reality no need to worry about any other soul whether they be young or old, and about their place in Ascension. All of you came to Earth knowing fully well what the challenges would be, and what your karmic lessons would entail. You are all fully equipped to deal with your life plan, and you have a number of Guides who help ensure it all works out successfully for you.

If a parent chooses to stay for the sake of a child, or a spouse for a partner, will that parent/spouse miss out on Ascension?
Steve Beckow: There are parents who are worried that they will ascend against their will and leave their children or spouse behind when they don’t want to. Is it possible to ascend against one’s will?
Archangel Michael: It is absolutely impossible.
SB: So that, so the simple thing then is just to say, I don’t wish to ascend at this point?
AAM: You see, this is the power of no.
SB: [Laughter] Right.
AAM: No, because part of the ascension process is the act of will. It is the alignment of your heart, your mind, your spirit with your will, not just the will of all, but with your will. We are not going to override that.
SB: Okay, so that’s the brake.
AAM: That’s the brake. …
Steve Beckow: Has a parent who chooses to remain behind when ascension occurs for the sake of a spouse or a child forfeited their chance to ascend for the next 26,000 years, or will they ascend upon the death of the physical body?
Archangel Michael: Of course they will ascend on the death of the body.
SB: All right. So it’s not the case that there’s a window that briefly opens and then shuts and these people have lost out altogether?
AAM: Why would we ever punish? We are not in the punishing business. And we would certainly never punish for love. When one stays because their love and their caring is so intense, their commitment is so intense – that is always taken into account. They will have their chance.

Some relationships will end
Beloveds, you must be willing to let go of those things in your life, which include relationships as well as material things that are no longer compatible with your new State of Being. You will find, as you move swiftly forward and upward on the path of Ascension, that whatever you are leaving behind will be replaced with people and things of a more refined level, which will be much more meaningful and important in your future existence. (“Archangel Michael: The Path of Ascension is the Path to Freedom,” channelled by Ronna Herman, August 29, 2013, at http://www.ronnastar.com/messages-aam/latest.html.)
Everything is energy and when your relationship with something or someone works, it means you are vibrating at the same rate. When an individual’s energy level changes, he often no longer resonates with those same people, foods, entertainments, news, etc. and is no longer on the same “wavelength” so to speak. Spiritual growth is the process of evolving out from under the dense and heavy energies of separation and duality consciousness and into the higher lighter frequencies of truth.
Some, in ignorance of what is happening, struggle to restore what they no longer resonate with, thinking that there must be a problem within causing them to no longer enjoy or believe the way they used to. This is not a problem, but a graduation Dear Ones, and simply reflects a shift in the energy from what you are used to (3D concepts and beliefs) to what is now awakening (truth of who and what you are).
This is what you have been asking for Dear Ones, so please do not be afraid to let go of anything and everything that no longer resonates with you, no matter how much it has been a part of your life up to this point.
We hear many say; “What, my marriage, my family, just let them go?” No, letting go means letting go of your concepts about these things. It means a conscious choice to remove any energetic cords still holding you in bondage to concepts of persons, places or situations – it is spiritual awareness, and then a living out from that awareness.
This may or may not result in the ending of some relationships because awareness brings with it a sense of detachment, even within ones family. Issues that seemed very important simply no longer resonate, and this is often difficult to accept for those who have always known you in a certain way.
When there is no longer anger or related ego issues with regard to some person or situation, but simply the realization that the whole thing is now old and has been completed through truth and Love, then whatever it is can be let go of and left.
