This is Matthew, with loving greetings from all souls at this station. Let us speak about something that affects the United States but is of great concern to peoples throughout your world, the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. We know of the various speculations as to what caused this grave environmental situation: the work of corporate saboteurs; another Illuminati "black ops" tactic to further delay official recognition of space beings' presence; some dark civilization is the culprit; and some are wondering if God had a hand in it, like a strong wake-up call, while others have defined it as a wrathful God punishing sinners.
Simply, the ultimate cause was a mechanical malfunction, but most assuredly this was no "accident." During the past decades of increasing numbers of seismic events, extracting oil from a mile beneath the waters was deliberately courting disasterit was not a matter of "if," but when strong planetary movement would disrupt mechanical operations at that depth.
The root of this environmental destructiveness is the intention of a few minds steeped in greed to keep your world dependent upon petroleum, and to that end, they have suppressed the developments in free energy that would have eliminated their source of mammoth fortunes. The relentless pursuit of monetary wealth has withered their conscience, thus there is no consideration given to the potential effects of desecrating the environment; and they don't understand that Earth is a highly evolved soul, a sentient being whose blood is the fluids within her planetary body.
We cannot say exactly when attempts to end the spewing of the oil will be successful, but this manmade disaster requires a manmade solution. We know of your visualizing marine life safe in pristine waters and your prayers that the oil will not reach coastlines. By all means continuenever underestimate your power to change any situation!
Some of you are pleading for our space family to come down and save the day, while others are disappointed, even distressed, that they aren't already there. They have not landed en masse only because it is not yet safe for you if they do so, but they are indeed helping! They are keeping the currents gentle and the oil away from the shore to the extent possible without creating unwanted side effects, and they have a watchful eye on the ones who might be persuaded to produce storms or seismic disturbances in the Gulf. They are doing what they can to lessen the toxic effects of the surface oil and the pools floating beneath; however, only after their technologies are in use on the planet can total eradication of the oil polluting the Gulf waters be achieved.
If every cloud has a silver lining, as your expression goes, then you could say that this cloud is surrounded by a brilliance that is billowing ever outward through your skies. The oil spill has given rise to demands for changes to insure that never again will such a disaster imperil your natural world. "Big Oil" will not be able to stem the growing tide of people curtailing gasoline consumption and looking for substitutes for petroleum-based products.
This is adding impetus to efforts to create a "green world" through renewable energy sources; clean manufacturing; ending pollution from all sources; expanding recycling and stopping wastefulness; preserving rain forests, which are essential not only for animal habitats, but your very breath. You see these recent or extended developments as promising, and rightly so. We wish you also could see how lighted beings throughout the universe are cheering on the "grassroots movement" as it surges in many directions.
Along with growing emphasis in those crucial areas is the ever louder outcry to end corporate control of governments; negotiate resolutions instead of wage war; eliminate massive impoverishment; end the reign of chemicals; and dig deeper into the pockets of corruption and deception, where only the tips of those icebergs are apparent.
Originally the Golden Age master plan created by the highest council called for a gradual emergence of the many truths during the process of world transformation and spiritual renewal. However, the tenacity of the dark ones has created a time crunch of sorts, as many profound revelations still must come forth so that once again the peoples will know they are powerful gods and goddesses, inseparable parts of the universal family of souls.
Even with considerable time to assimilate that ultimate truth, it would be difficult for many, and perhaps impossible for some, to believe it. Yet, that reality and many others of shocking nature have to be disclosed within a brief period so that myriad changes of a magnitude you can hardly imagine can be accomplished, and all of those changes are gathering momentum. The 2012 timetable for Earth to exit third density's darkness is much less than the two and a half years your calendars indicate. Time as you perceive it will continue to pass faster and faster the closer you approach the continuum wherein linear time's past, present and future are happening simultaneously in different energy planes.
Our beloved Earth is right on target on her ascension pathway, that we can assure you, but we don't know who will choose to see the light of universal truths and who will not. The light brings spiritual clarity and changes cellular structure from carbon-based to the crystalline form that enables bodies to survive in the vibratory levels of the Golden Age. Those who choose the light will physically accompany Earth and those who do not will go to other worlds where they will have as many opportunities as they need "to see the light."
I think it is pertinent at this point to address a reader's commentmany minds are pondering much the same: I don't understand how you can be so sure about something happening in the future, like the Golden Age, but you can't predict what will happen in situations existing right now.
We do not predict anything. When messengers of the light tell you something with total assurance, such as the advent of the Golden Age, it is because that already exists in the "timeless" continuum. At soul level you do know this, but you do not consciously remember your excitement about being selected to participate in this unprecedentedly swift passage of a world out of deep third density into fourth and continuing apace to fifth, and you can't perceive as "completed" anything that in your linear time is still underway. And even "underway" in this regard is evident only to the relatively few of the world's population who understand that all the upheavals in your world are the old ways disintegrating during Earth's rapid transition to a glorious new era.
When we speak of an ongoing situation and cannot give you a timeframe for the outcome, or perhaps cannot even tell you what the outcome will be, it is because those are not conclusive in Earth's energy field of potential, where varying energy intensities and directions are in perpetual motion. Energy, the essence of everything in existence throughout the cosmosthe indivisible consciousness of I AM Creator Creationis neutral. What gives energy streamers direction and enables them to manifest in substance are the positive and negative charges, or the "light" and "dark" attachments, and those are continuously being formed by individual and collective thoughts, feelings and actions. That is why we repeatedly have urged you to focus on what you WANT for your life and for your world, not what you don't want!
Returning to our explanation, let us say that "light" energy streamers around a specific situation are gathering momentum. The "dark" streamers affecting that same situation will diminish or increase in accordance with the intensity of consciousness put into them. That is what lets possibilities evolve into probabilities and, in turn, into realities when the momentum becomes unstoppable. It was that unstoppable momentum that enabled us to tell you before the primary elections in the United States that Barack Obama would become that country's president. The same kind of momentum was reached several months prior to the invasion of Iraq; that is why I could I state at that time that despite peace rallies and other efforts to preclude that happening, the war could not be prevented [Part VI, "War" in Illuminations for a New Era].
However, even when it appears that the energy surge in a specific direction has minimal opposing force along its way to "unstoppable momentum," it is folly to conclude that its direction cannot be changed by an abrupt infusion of conflicting consciousness. I fell into that folly. Activity in the field of potential strongly indicated that then-President Bush, whose Illuminati faction had bought the presidency, would be removed because his rhetoric so often made him look foolish in the eyes of other world leaders, and that didn't serve the best interests of either his faction or the one that opposed him. With the energy of both factions strongly aligned in this respect and nothing in opposition, I stated in a message that George W. Bush's term in office would be one of the shortest on record.
Everyone knows that he completed two full terms, but very few know what went on behind the scenes. The Bush clone was removed from office according to the agreed-upon plan, but the adversarial faction hadn't expected the sudden betrayal by the Bush faction, which put in a "new, improved" clone simultaneously with removing some of the individuals who were acting on behalf of Vice President Cheney. Nevertheless, the outcome was that a succession of Bush clones held the office that Cheney clones actually ruled.
I think a bit of background here will be helpful. At one time the Illuminati was a tightly knit group with the same aimworld domination. That aim has never changed, but as one generation succeeded another and their numbers grew with marriages and other alliances, egos, greed and lust for power began to unravel the original unity. Eventually the infighting resulted in a split into two competing factions, one in Europe and the other in the United States. The same infighting that caused that split spilled into each faction, and they splintered into smaller factions. In the United States, Bush is in one, Cheney in another.
A natural product of the fierce competition among the various factions were life-threatening situations for the most influential principals in each splinter group, and that gave rise to cloning those individuals so that if an assassination attempt succeeded, a clone would take the place of the person. This also served the Illuminati's purpose of maintaining the public appearance of continuity of their people in high offices. [If you are interested in the cloning process, that and other information about clones are in "Human Cloning," Revelations for a New Era.]
Now then, readers who are dismayed that the greatly respected Stephen Hawkings expressed distrust of alien civilizations want to know if he has been taken over by the dark side; will his opinion be taken seriously by the planners of the TV announcement about other civilizations; will this delay the arrival of ETs or dissuade them from coming; does this bode ill for them if they make their presence known. I don't know why Stephen said what he did, but there is no darkness within the heart of this dear soul, and it is only surmising that it may have been similar to what motivated Carl Sagan to claim that there is no firm evidence of intelligent life existing elsewhere: threats to his family. But nothing will delay, much less deter, our universal family members from joining you as soon as they have absolute assurance of your safety!
A reader who has heard a great deal about Pleiadians would like to know more about them. This may not add to her knowledge, but it may be enlightening to others that many of you have ancestors who came from the Pleiades in antiquity to participate in the planetary population seeding program, and some of you came to Earth directly from that group of star nations specifically to play a role in this unique time in the universe. So there is significant Pleiadian influence among the populace, but it is not exclusive by any means. Other civilizations that had a large hand in those early stages include Arcturus, Sirius and Lyra, and their progeny have incarnated on the planet time and time again, including these recent years for the same purpose as the Pleiadians.
I have been asked if the universe's astrological aspects are as significant as some people believe. Without knowing how much importance each individual ascribes to planetary movement, I can only say that their changing positions do indeed affect your lives. You choose your birth time in accordance with celestial activity because its influences, with which you are energetically aligned, enhance other choices in your soul contract. The juxtaposition of some planets is favorable for evoking positive feelings, high energy and meaningful productivity, while other alignments present considerably more challenges in those respects. Knowledge of the various astrological influences can be helpful in decision-making, but dependence upon daily "readings," even from a chart with meticulous accuracy, would be suppressing the spiritual growth that comes from recognizing and heeding inner guidance, your soul's messages that come as intuition.
A United Methodist Church pastor asked if I can "shed any light on the future of the Christian Church in the U.S. in light of the many changes that are taking place." I could say that this dear soul replied to himself in part by twice using "light" in his request. My response is not restricted to his native country or Christian churches, however, because it is immensely heartening for us to observe that church leaders and congregations of different denominations and faiths around the world are responding to the intensity of light on Earth.
Because the religious teachings of old cannot provide satisfying answers to today's questions, church people are starting to listen to their inner voice. In resisting the long-held view that homosexuals have no place in church leadership, women and men of that orientation are being welcomed into those positions. Increasingly "You are your brother's keeper" is going well beyond church doors, establishing new or enlarging community outreach services. Individuals are holding onto the godly aspects and discarding the dogmatic rules of their respective faiths as hearts and minds are transitioning from religion to spirituality.
The historic side of religion is not that positive. The radical beliefs of some individuals are the distortions passed down through generations of hatred and oppression; but the basis of religion did not derive from noble purposes. The intent of the originators, who then ruled church and state, was to control the masses through rigorous religious rules. They decided what should constitute sinning and claimed that whoever sinned would feel the wrath of a vengeful God. When Christianity arose, the people in power altered the records that became the Bible so it would suit their purposes, portrayed Jesus as the "only son of God," and put layers of "authorities" between the people and God. They also were greedy and amassed great wealth by instituting tithing and other means of extracting money from the believers.
The influence of religion through the ages has been so powerful that it led to the Crusades, persecution, execution, torture, imprisonment, assassinations. The divisiveness, caste systems and ostracism that religions have caused still exists, and so do fear of disobeying "God's laws" and guilt and remorse when one strays from strict adherence. In the Mormon Church, families of the deceased can pay to have their beloved souls assured one of the limited spaces in heaven; and, despite glowing accounts from some celebrities, the Church of Scientology basically is a mind control organization. Even Satanism is officially acknowledged as a religion!
Of all that the darkness has devised throughout the ages to capture souls, religions have been the most effective in keeping believers in bondage. Once back in spirit life, souls realize that they had fallen into that spell still another time and once again they choose to break religion's hold when next they incarnate.
Although some of the foregoing has been mentioned in previous messages, it bears repeating because the religiously devout will become lightworkers' greatest challenge. There will be widespread disbelief and confusion, and likely militant resistance in some quarters, when ancient records are brought forth as evidence of what we have been telling you. The souls whose religion is the foundation of their lives will need compassion, patience and kindnesssimply by living your light you can assist those whose minds are ajar. We shall rejoice with you when they embrace the truth of their power and unlimited potential as parts of God, but if they choose to deny that, it would not be a failing on your part. Or theirs. No experience, however different from soul contracts, ever is wasted, and each soul in its own timing will return to the pure love essence of its Beginnings.
You are supremely prepared to deal with everything on the near horizon! During your multiple lifetimes you have amassed wisdom, strengths and abilities that may surprise you when they pop up, and they will when the occasion is ripe, you could say. That is why your fervent request to be where you are was granted by the highest council when many other souls just as eager as you were not chosen. It is true that some of the chosen are lingering in a state of unawareness, and that is all right for them and for you. They will have other opportunities to bring light to struggling civilizations, and you are so eminently qualified to carry the ball, to use your expression, that in the continuum you are enjoying the thrill of success.
Never for an instant are you alone. Countless souls in spirit are traveling by your side and countless others in physical worlds are helping you in other ways along your journey. Our beloved brothers and sisters, what a joyous, exciting time this is for all of us!
LOVE and PEACE
