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.)
White Eagle Predicts the New Age in 1967
In the past, we’ve discussed how word of the New Age has come from spiritualist sources in the 1870s (Imperator), the 1910s (Beinsa Douno), the 1930’s (Silver Birch), and the 1970s (David Spengler).
John adds to our knowledge base by pointing to passages in White Eagle in which that spirit teacher points to a New Age approaching from the vantage point of the 1960s.
White Eagle is a spirit guide who gave comfort and sustenance to many in the English-speaking world from the 1960s to the present. I recall reading his books when I first started out on the spiritual path and returning to them periodically.
His manner of expressing many spiritual truths and his universal love were always inspiring. Here is White Eagle predicting the coming of the New Age and the help we will get from spirits and galactics:
“A rapid development is taking place now, although man may be largely unconscious of it. In a little while the human race will be uplifted by its own effort and the effort of the [spirit] hierarchies.
“There is also great spiritual activity in outer space, a penetration of the mists of Earth by the angelic life. Man must learn to be receptive to these radiations from outer space. He must prepare himself by gentle, good thought, by abolishing all that is cruel, unseemly, ungoldly, to receive visitors from other worlds, physical, etheric and spiritual.
Moreover he has to become aware not only of the life in outer space and in other planets, but also of the conscious life in all nature, and his own relationship to it in every kingdom.” (1)
British Spiritualists of the Late Twentieth Century
In 1948, Alice Gilbert, as renowed for her Philip in Two Worlds books as Suzy Ward is for her Messages from Matthew, recorded her conversation with Sun-Ray, guide of a Mrs. Roberts, who predicted the coming events:
“Alice Gilbert to Sun-Ray, Mrs. Roberts’ spirit control: – Do you consider that there is a great drive going on in your world to educate people about [spirit]?
“He – Yes, certainly. In time, we shall be able to appear in our etheric bodies amongst you.
“Myself – That won’t be for a long time, will it?
“He – Not so long, perhaps in about a hundred years.” (2)
An unnamed master of the Brotherhood of Light used the occasion of Lesley May’s contacts with his mother to interrupt and predict the advent of a “new era” in which everyone will reap what they have sown. He went on at some length to describe the nature of the times.
“Every vibration on the earth has been stepped up because you now stand at the threshold of a new era. Men are reaping the harvest of their sowing. Those who have sown violence will reap violence. Those who have sown peace will reap peace. For the harvest must be shared by all mankind; no man standing alone in his guilt, nor in his glory. Each is a fragment of the whole.
“Yet, my beloved, all is not lost, for I would reveal to you that within the law is yet a greater law, the law of transmutation. Many are they amongst you who have returned to earth at this time of crisis to enact the law’s fulfillment, as a voluntary service to all their brothers.
“Had mankind accepted and understood the teachings of the Master Jesus, the plan for your earth would have taken a vastly different course and the advance to perfection have been achieved with greater speed. However, mankind proceeded, unheedingly, upon a materialistic course, largely losing touch with the spiritual life-line of soul communion with the inner presence.
“Thus the harvest of their folly is upon them, but with the crumbling of the material edifice that they have built, the dross will be burnt away and the clear light of truth revealed. This will not be accomplished without suffering, yet, my beloved, much may be accomplished by those amongst you who have perceived the power of spirit, to turn the tide of disaster.” (3)
In his call to action, the master foretells the coming of our universal family to assist us with our evolutionary jump.
“Instruments are needed now, as never before in the history of your planet. Indeed, this is a momentous year and marks a beginning and an end of an era of evolution in the cosmic spheres, which will have repercussions, not only on earth, but in many planets and other planes of thought and action far beyond your understanding or imagining. There has been a vast concentration of energy from the cosmic spheres, which has been brought to a focal point at this time.
“A large measure of this energy has been and will be directed to mankind at your stage of evolution, both on your planet and to others in galaxies far removed. This we do not ask you to attempt to understand, for the reasons are beyond your comprehension. But we do ask that you should direct your thoughts upward in seeking for higher levels of attainment and that you should open your hearts and minds to the divine flow of cosmic energy. It is thus that the God Consciousness within you will be awakened to a realization of the encompassing love and compassion of the Divine Spirit and self-realization will be attained.
“Tread fearlessly on the path for though thousands may fall to the right and to the left of you, if you will but keep your minds single to the truth, no harm shall come nigh you.
“Go forward in confidence, my beloved. Listen to the still small voice within and be guided accordingly.” (4)
In our next article, we’ll look at other late 20th-Century voices.
