With loving greetings from all souls at this station, this is Matthew. When my mother was participating in a fall equinox global meditation and visualizing Earth radiant in golden-white Christed light, she heard, "Please record my words." It is with joy that we share the following with you.
I am Gaia, the soul of the planet you call Earth. Just as you, I can feel heavyhearted or lighthearted. For long ages I wept, when my spirit was broken. My people were hateful to each other and my body was soaked with their blood. I weep no longer because there is so much to feel joyful about, so much to feel thankful for.
My light is not yet in full force, my body is not yet balanced. That is because some of my children still are being hateful to one another. Some of them are without love, without compassion, without the understanding that differences can be absolutely splendid when harmony and respect flow along the heart-lines.
Yet, I am joyful because I am on a journey like no other soul in this universe ever has traveled. I am going home, and you who are holding the light that is helping me move steadily and quickly forward are coming with me. Can you imagine a greater distinction than this journey we are sharing? Can you imagine a greater excitement than our ascension? I cannot!
I asked to speak this day to tell you of my gratitude for all of you. You were chosen from a great number of souls, triple the number that could incarnate and participate. This level of light service never before has been undertaken. We are playing a part in the grandest show ever performed in this universe. I feel the humility that mingles with sublime satisfaction for a job well donein the continuum, our job is completed.
As our travels continue, many wonders are in store for you and this world of ours. You have been told of many, so you can think of them and look forward to them, but actually living in the glorious times soon coming is beyond your imagining.
All beings in this universe are watching this unfold, did you know? I cannot imagine such a vast audience! All the souls of light are cheering for us, so we shall continue giving them a good show, an experience worthy of even God's applause. I share my heart with you and my love for you is overflowing.
Gaia's message for you is of exceptional value to us as well. We hold this beloved soul in highest honor, as do all other lighted beings throughout this universe. We know of her unwavering courage and unconditional love for her successive generations of residents throughout the long dark ages that they caused her near unendurable emotional and physical suffering. We can see that her body is not yet in balance, as she said, but we also see her spirit soaring, and this is indeed a joyous sight to behold!
We see another grand and beautiful sightyour spirits. You have long awaited proof that many profound changes are afoot, and if you are perceiving happenings in the context of Earth's ascension, you know that your patience is being rewarded. It is natural, however, that most people are interpreting events with third density outlook and in the context of their experiences and world history they have observed or been taught.
As an example, many view foreign nations' involvement in "Arab spring" as self-servingcontrol of oil reserves and extension of military and multinational corporate interests. While that may well be the idea in some greedy, power-hungry minds, it is not the higher purpose and will not be part of the outcome. Assistance was given to those who are fighting to throw off the yoke of oppressive rule simply because without help, the valiant fighters' mission could not be successful as universally ordained. Their inspiration to rise up against the status quo and the decision to aid them are positive reactions to the vibrations in the energy planes Earth has been passing through.
That energy streamer is just one of a multitude with unstoppable momentum toward world transformation. Others include the global economy, which is teetering on the brink and has moved beyond the Illuminati's ability to manipulate in their favor. Due to demands of the populace, governments that need to be in upheaval, are; and new governing bodies that need to become stabilized are working on that. In the United States, the Occupy Wall Street movement is growing. Emphasis keeps increasing on peaceful negotiations to national and international conflicts. Petitions are circulating around the globe for clean energy and other environmental preservation measures and to end injustices that formerly the populace felt helpless to change. Community leaders, groups and families are helping their neediest members, and the exchange of goods and services is helping many overcome obstacles and deal with hardships.
Underlying all of this activity is, people who think of themselves as "ordinary" are doing extraordinary things. Perhaps a few among them understand what is transpiring worldwide and universally, but the great majority is simply following an inner urge to act against the entire spectrum of corruption and inequities, and inspired individuals are opening pathways for the masses to tread.
The energy generated by the participants in all reform activities, along with the energy of all who in heart and mind are supportive of those efforts, is observable as light that keeps shining ever more brightly. This is indeed cause for jubilation, but please do not think that holding your light steady is not as necessary now that momentous change is undeniably underway. Your light absolutely is as necessary and valuableas essentialas ever!
The energy of the desire of everyone who is actively protesting conditions based in negativity is light-filled and is registered thusly in Earth's energy field of potential. Many participants are motivated by anger, frustration and resentment, and while that is indeed understandable, the energy of their thoughts and feelings about those conditions is registered as negativity in the field of potential. The result is, the energy generated by the people's focus is attracting the "like" energy that is prolonging what they are protesting against.
And not everyone shares your and our excitement about the many movements toward change that are spreading like a cleansing wildfire throughout your world. The recalcitrant Illuminati will continue to resist giving up the shreds of power they're clinging to just as stubbornly as they are trying to hold onto their illegally amassed unimaginably vast fortunes. In their persistent refusal of the light constantly being offered, they are living in a darkness of their own creating that doesn't let them see what they soon will be forced to acknowledge: Their efforts were futile. Their time is over.
Others also are stubbornly dragging their feet insofar as embracing the light. They thrived under the old ways of doing business and are stuck in the superficiality and triviality of what they deem social, professional and financial success. Having lost touch with their spiritual nature long ago, they will resist changes that interfere with their comfortable lifestyles.
Thus for a while longer, negativity from a number of sources is going to be in the collective consciousness, the powerful energy field of Earth's residents' thoughts, feelings and actions that creates everything that goes on in your world.
For millennia the collective consciousness allowed darkness to easily dominate life on Earth. Seven or eight decades past, the collective consciousness started stirring as the massive infusion of light from distant civilizations inspired new kinds of thoughts and feelings in the peoples. Gradually they turned from acceptance and compliance to questioning the wisdom and motives of "authorities." That led to a growing determination to uplift their lot in life and to help others who wanted to do the same. All of those natural stages were necessary to bring the peoples to this point of conscious awareness and action.
The high vibrations that are enabling static conditions of long duration to undergo dramatic change are opening minds more so than ever before. However, the masses have not yet achieved the spiritual clarity that includes knowing the power of thoughts and feelings. They don't know that they can't manifest what they do want as long as they are preoccupied with what they don't want.
Many of you have sent queries to my mother: How can I help Earth when I don't know what my mission is? Few of you came to be leaders, millions of you came to be teachers, way-showers. By living your light, the energy you radiate touches souls around you and nudges their consciousness into questioning; share your knowledge with those who show they are seeking answers. This would not be in a preaching or proselytizing manner, which can have an alienating effect, but by offering information to the extent individuals show interest, and the importance of thinking and feeling positively instead of negatively cannot be overstated.
Visualization may be a technique more commonly known than the law of attraction, and it may be helpful to give examples such as, if you don't want more war, focus on peace. If you don't want more corruption in governments, focus on leaders with wisdom and moral integrity. If you don't want impoverishment, focus on abundance flowing in.
The words imagine, picture, envision, and think about have the same effect as focus, of course, and suggestions of what to visualize that is in line with what individuals do want can be helpful too. For instance, a good life for everyone: Visualize crowds of healthy appearing, smiling people of all ages and races strolling in lovely parks and laughing children on colorful playgrounds. Envision vegetable gardens thriving and tables laden with food, prosperous neighborhoods with trees and flowering shrubs, schools and universities filled with eager students.
For preservation of the natural environment and rejuvenation of damaged lands and seas, visualize Earth with crystal clear skies and waters, verdant lands where deserts used to be, flourishing forests.
You want humane treatment of all animals, so picture animals of every species grazing in meadows and peaceably mingling with one another and with the people.
To the extent that individuals show interest, tell them that all of those and myriad other glories are part of Earth's Golden Age, and it is the collective ideas, desires and actions of her populace that are creating that Age.
There will be clean, safe energy sources; fair and just laws; a stable global economy and equitable allocation of the world's bountiful resources; new forms of transportation, communication and construction.
All nations' infrastructures will be soundly rebuilt. Travel from one country to another will be unrestricted. All who want to be employed will be, and there will be more recreation time for everyone. Taxation will be fair and so will salaries and wages. Accurate history of your world and the universal laws will be taught. Education at all levels will be affordable to every person and so will attendance at museums, galleries, theaters, concerts and sports events. Technologies will grow by leaps and bounds.
All of those enhancements and many others that also will immeasurably uplift life in your world are being manifested in the collective consciousness, and speaking down-to-Earth, they are in planning or implementation stages. [The message dated December 31, 2007, "Essay on 2012," on Matthew's Messages page on www.matthewbooks.com has details of life in Earth's Golden Age.]
Even more profound experiences await you on a personal level. You will feel your eternal connection with God, by whatever other name you call the Supreme Being of this universe, and you will take your rightful place in our universal family as the brothers and sisters you are.
You will experience living in the continuum, where all lifetimes are happening simultaneously, and you will travel back and forth between Earth and worlds with compatible energy levels. You will communicate telepathically with souls in spirit and in physical civilizations as you wish, and you will manifest your ideas into forms.
You will know that you are powerful multidimensional beings and all that knowledge and those capabilities are components of your soul. They don't require esoteric studies or external instructionsthose self-discoveries automatically come with steadfastly living your light and evolving spiritually.
Now we say what will NOT be part of life in the Golden Age: fear, pollution of any kind, religious dogmas, violence, capital punishment and prisons, male superiority, social caste systems, cruelty to any life form, poverty, mind control and closed minds, greed, jealousy, envy, cheating, prejudice, corruption, harmful chemicals and drugs, political haranguing and bureaucratic red tape, wanton destruction, health afflictions, anger, ruthlessness, divisiveness, self-centeredness and egotism, dishonesty, military mentality, weaponry, addictions, pornography, homelessness, slave trade, media control, corporate monopolies.
We mention those behaviors, character traits and circumstances that proliferate in a third density world only to gladden your heart about their imminent disappearancetheir low vibrations can't exist in the fourth density world on your near horizon. And now we say, if your thoughts have been dwelling on any of those attitudes or conditions that have caused misery to so many, switch to thinking about and acting solely upon what you wantlove, harmony, kindness, compassion, health, abundance, mutual respect, generosity, helpfulness, joy, cooperation, honesty, forgiveness, gratitude, fearlessness.
When the power of loveor light, which is the very same energyis the constitution of your collective consciousness, oh! the magnificence in your lives and your world!
Now then, we shall address some of the other issues in your thoughts. First, we urge you to stop worrying about the long-term effects of radioactivity from damaged nuclear reactors in Japan, genetically engineered foods, vaccines, and toxins in various forms of pollution. The cells of all persons who absorb the light are being changed to the crystalline form that will "shed" everything with low vibrations that inhibit the ability to function healthfully in body, mind and spirit.
In previous messages we mentioned numerous predictions or prognostications that will not come to pass. Now we speak of other situations that have arisen or resurfaced and are causing concerns anewnone of these will happen either: military coups as oppressive as the corrupt governments they ousted; railroad cars transporting thousands to internment camps; biological warfare; holographic displays of an alien invasion as reason to impose martial law; manmade geophysical events that will destroy thousands of miles of coastline; a food shortage so severe that the wealthy will hoard food and the rest of the world will starve; and the control of drinking water.
Please remember that a plan is one thing, bringing to fruition its intended result is quite another. Skirmishes, random violence, political bickering and deprivations will continue as the duality in humankind plays out its final act, but nothing can deter Earth's exit out of third density at the end of next year. In the interim, a great number of persons will be leavingeveryone who completes the provisions chosen in soul contracts, all who refuse the light, and many others who choose to leave rather than adjust to the mammoth changes forthcoming or believe the truths that will be emerging. All of those souls will have as many opportunities as needed to grow spiritually and intellectually.
You may have heard that two vast underground areas that housed Illuminati-controlled laboratories, vehicles, weaponry, storehouses and living quarters were destroyed, but it was by safe technologies, not nuclear devices; and some within the Illuminati camp have been removed from power, but not by killing them. As both defensive and offensive measures, the light forces use only the power of light and technologies that have no harmful aftereffects. They are aware of Illuminati plans, and if those include rigging major bridges with explosives that can be detonated remotely, they are authorized to prevent that. While that might seem to be a violation of Creator's law of free will, it is notit is the honoring of Earth's free will. After 9/11, she chose that any further attempt at terrorism on that scale would be prevented, and by God's authorization, our universal family has successfully thwarted many attempts.
Absolutely animals "go to Heaven"! But it's not because they have a soul, it is because they are souls. Everything that has a measure of consciousness is a soul because it is created of Creator's love-light essence, the life force of everything in the cosmos. Also animals evolve, just as other souls do.

All persons who accompany the planet into fourth density and journey onwards will do so in their "today" bodies, they will not "be issued new" ones, but aged bodies will be renewed, rejuvenated"de-aged"incrementally. Bodies afflicted with disease of any nature will gradually become healedthis includes blindness, deafness, diminished mental capacity, chronic pain, and degenerative diseasesand re-growth of missing limbs and teeth also will happen in stages. Current medication dosages will be determined by the same means as now for the short time that the medication may be needed. Along your journey, all persons will be restored to peak health physically, mentally and emotionally.
Belief in Earth's ascension or not has nothing to do with whether bodies are affected by the combination of successively lighter planes of energy along the ascension pathway and the low frequencies emitted by the misuse of technology on the planet. All bodies are affected, but the effects do differ in accordance with current health status, awareness of the ascension process, and reactions to tumultuous situations worldwide. Absorbing light helps bodies stay relatively balanced and not go flying out of kilter; it is the same with emotional and mental functioning during this unique time in the universe, especially in this late stage of Earth's approach to fourth density.
Pollution of all kinds can be quickly eradicated through the use of technologies developed in your world, but long suppressed or misused, in conjunction with the advanced technologies of your universal family that they will teach to your scientists and engineers.
Not all extraterrestrial civilizations are benevolent; however, all civilizations with crews roving in your skies are. The non-lighted beings from other civilizations who are living on the planet will be leaving soon because their bodies cannot survive in the vibratory levels the planet is traveling toward. Yes, many former residents of Atlantis have returned specifically to help prevent a recurrence of the cataclysmic destruction that befell that civilization; these souls also have wisdom and leadership capabilities gleaned from many other lifetimes in spirit worlds and other physical civilizations.
Planetary alignment within your solar system has considerable effects on behavior and attitudes, especially when the juxtaposition of the planets and Sol is ripe for energy surges. The surges are occurring with greater frequency because of Earth's accelerated movement through the system, and when she is well within fourth density, there will be a recognizable sensation of stability as there will be no more negativity to contend with. No celestial body is going to collide with Earth or come close enough to have any noticeable effects.
For those who asked if getting an astrological chart for guidance during these hectic times would be helpful, we say that charts prepared by spiritually evolved, knowledgeable astrologers can be a helpful tool; but depending on only external sources to guide you in making major decisions and ignoring messages from your soul would be folly. A major aspect of soul evolvement from third to fourth density is the soul-consciousness connection that is designed to keep you on track with choices in your contract.
We cannot give "how to" instructions to open telepathic communication channels as they open when the time is right for each person, and that timing differs just as you yourselves differ. However, we have given precautions for novice communicators, and since telepathic channels are opening with increasing frequency due to the higher vibrations prevailing, we are happy to repeat the guidance.
Prior to recording a transmission or conversing at any time, ask for protection of the Christed light and insist that only light beings may connect with you. Don't attempt to communicate when you are ill, emotionally or mentally stressed, or feeling fearful or angryany of those conditions lowers your energy level and makes it easy for base entities to connect with you. Self-doubt is natural in the beginning, and that also is an invitation to low-level beings; if you feel uneasy about the source's information or have an uncomfortable sensation, cut the connection and try again when you are feeling relaxed. With practice you will become self-confident, but do so with humilitythe low vibrations of egotism are certain to connect you with dark sources.
All darkness will be gone when Earth enters fourth density around the end of your calendar year 2012, but not all the glories of her Golden Age will be on that threshold. Wondrous developments will continue to unfold throughout your world, including joyous reunions with beloved souls you knew in this lifetime and will remember from others. It is as Gaia said, "many wonders are in store for you and this world of ours."
