Given the interest in Ascension, the Event, or a planetary heart opening, I’ve reworked two series from the past into one, going over all the voices I’m aware of who talk about the New and Golden Age.
This can also serve as an introduction to new readers.

Twentieth Century (Cont’d)
Silver Birch’s “New World”
From the 1920s to 1981, the much-loved Silver Birch, speaking through British medium Maurice Barbanell, repeatedly discussed what he called the “New World” that was coming. (1)
His was a much gentler voice than Imperator’s, but he covered all the same points, including the need to cleanse religion of its dogma.
The passage that follows is so relevant, I quote it at length.
“As always happens before there is a birth, there is much pain. The birth of the new order means much pain. Even when the new order comes, there will be growing pains.”
That rings true for me.
“But there has been planted in your world a seed that will grow and the efforts of those in high places to destroy the seed will fail. It was said, a long time ago, ‘Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.’ That is going to happen.”
This is happening as we speak (July 2016).
“There will be many big changes. There will be break-ups and there will be many upheavals. There will be what you think is darkness and difficulty. You will say, ‘Things are worse.'”
I have done this.
“But, all the time, there is behind it all a power which is making for the progress of the world.
“There are many of us who have been allowed by those who are higher and above us to see your world as it will be one day. That conception we try to transmit to those who are receptive, to inspire them to go on with their work.
“The pictures I have seen make your present world [seem] more ugly [in comparison?] than it is. I see what it could be like – and what it must be like. It is only a question of time.”
He now describes a higher-dimensional world, a world that works.
“One day, there will arise a new race that will recognize that all politics, religion, science and knowledge are part of one thing. Then pain, sorrow, fear, mourning and unhappiness will be banished and your world will be a place of smiles and happy laughter. …
“You have tried to build a world where, when one man has something, instead of using it to help others, he tries to keep it for himself, with the result that in time he makes a system that must collapse because its foundations are wrong.
“When you have people who develop their gifts, which all come from the Great Spirit, and use them for the benefit of all the others, then there will be built a system founded on that which is eternal.” (2)
People who develop their gifts and use them to help others – sounds like a lightworker to me. Building on an eternal foundation, of love and service, instead of an unstable foundation of greed and self-service.
“Silver Birch” himself is said to be a higher-dimensional, non-native being who used as his astral step-down transmitter on the other side a native American called Silver Birch. Here the higher-dimensional “Silver Birch” says that beings more evolved than he have showed him the future and that’s what he’s passing on to us now.
We have no way of knowing what dimensions he’s describing as “higher,” even when we read his descriptions of them. See if you can guess what dimension he’s referring to in these descriptions.
“The realm or sphere which is my natural habitat has a radiance and a translucence that you cannot understand, clogged as you are by matter.” (3)
“I come from a realm where all is light and colour, where hearts sing with the sheer joy of living, where all are busily engaged in congenial pursuits, where all the arts flourish, where each is imbued with the idea of service, with sharing what he has with those who have it not, where there is an intensity and vitality, a joy and radiance in well-doing.” (4)
“I have only just returned from the higher spheres which are my natural habitat. I have sought refreshment and renewal in higher spheres than the one I usually occupy when I communicate with you according to the manner of your world.” (5)
It’s at least the Fifth but probably much higher. “A realm where all is light and colour” could be a formless realm. Tenth or above?
There were other sources over the years discussing the coming Golden Age – David Spengler’s Revelation: The Birth of a New Age, Terence Mackenna’s zero-point writings, Eric Klein’s The Crystal Stair. The Sixties even saw a musical enacted about the coming of the Age of Aquarius. (14) The spirit of the “New Age” was fully alive back then in the flower children, Findhorn, Esalen, eastern religions, the drug culture, the whole potpourri. There was not a knowledge of Ascension among them however.
What’s the use of reading something like Beinsa Douno’s prophecy when we’re living in the times they’re describing?
When we as a world hit a time of chaos and uncertainty, such as the present dying days of the cabal, I find it reassuring, encouraging, and inspiring to read channeled sources from bygone eras who discuss everything that was going to happen – and is happening now. Hearing the accuracy of their accounts seems to stiffen my backbone to carry on when the circumstances weigh me down.
Reassurance, encouragement and inspiration are exactly what I need right now, as the cabal causes yet more chaos, lashing its tail hopefully for the last time and causing all kinds of reactions among lightworkers.
