Introduction to Ascension – Part 2/2

2012 April 22
Posted by Steve Beckow

(Continued from Part 1/2.)

SaLuSa reminds us that “this opportunity where there is a mass ascension does not come round very often.” (1) It’s by no means “a give-away, but something that is earnt through your application of Universal Laws.” (2) It marks our victory “in overcoming your perceived separation from God. You will have identified with your true Self, a magnificent Being of Light.” (3) When we finally ascend we may be absolutely certain that “you have succeeded in overcoming duality, and you will truly be looked upon as a Master.” (4)

Having reached the end of the cycle, we bring to a close a long journey of exploration, SaLuSa tells us.

“You have come a long way and experienced so much about human life. About its power and the weaknesses of the flesh, and the strength of the soul with its infinite life and journey from the stars. You truly have tried and tested yourself to the limit.” (5)

Saul describes what life in duality has been like and why we chose it.

“The illusion you have made and continue to support, maintain, and rebuild is a quite horrific concept that is in complete opposition to the glorious wonder that is Reality.  As I have told you before, you conceived of it as a way to experience separation from your divine Father, and to play imaginary games that are impossible in a Reality of unconditional Love.

“Initially, you were quite captivated by what it seemed you had made: an environment that allowed you to judge and condemn or to forgive and love, to hate and destroy or to indulge and allow.  You seemed to have infinite power to use as you pleased, quite separately from one another, and, of course, the result has been chaos and confusion as you each seek ends that are divisive and incompatible.” (6)

However our initial fascination turned to regret, he explains.

“Finally, the extreme incompatibility of your separate agendas is seeping into your awareness.  The insanity of the separate and divisive plans that you have been attempting to implement for so long is becoming apparent to you.  You are ready for the enormous changes in attitude that are required to enable you to stop playing these unpleasant games and awaken, allowing the illusion to dissolve back into the nothingness from which you built it.

“The end of the illusion, and the suffering it engenders, is approaching.  Your happiness and exhilaration in the joy of being alive when you finally awaken from this deranged and stifling nightmare will overwhelm you.” (7)

Those who are aware that duality is drawing to an end will approach the cycle’s end with a calm and confident knowing, SaLuSa tells us.

“By now you will have had so many lives on Earth that you will, so to say, have done the rounds and there is little left for you to experience. For many of you that means playing out the last days preparing for Ascension. You should be able to sense if you have fulfilled your life plan, as you will feel no pressures upon you and relaxed even in these times of turmoil. You are partway to the higher levels and have that air of confidence and knowing. Your peaceful mien and relaxed approach to life, is helping others calm down and look for their own safe haven. …

“You have fought a battle for your souls and have passed all tests, and now stand proudly at the portal to Ascension.” (8)

They will know that Ascension will bring with it an end to “the need to re-incarnate regularly”; it allows us “to step off the ladder of re-birth.” (9) Anyone familiar with spirituality will know that this is an exalted goal. It brings us back to “the levels that you left eons of time ago.” (10)

“It is a natural progression that comes to those who [sense] that the Earth is not their true home. Indeed, you might ask who’s home is it, as each of you originally came from the higher levels. In the 3rd. dimension Mother Earth is your temporary home for the duration of this cycle….

“Many will stay with Mother Earth after Ascension, whilst others will meet their real families again.” (11)

This latter group are the Starseeds who came to assist with this Ascension. They’ll rejoin their true star families.

“They come from many civilisations scattered throughout the Universe. You will find them within the Galactic Federation, and often they are the very same ones that have had a hand in your evolution. So you will see that we are far from being strangers to you.” (12)

Ascension, Matthew Ward tells us, will occur “when a universal cycle opens an astral window at the end of this year.” (13) Nothing can prepare us for what it will be like, Saul says.

“Your thoughts, your imaginings, even your dreams have given you not the smallest inkling of what is about to occur. Rest assured that the wonder of this approaching event leaves absolutely no room for even the slightest sense of doubt or disenchantment.” (14)

Given how little time remains, it’s time to tie up all loose ends from our stay in duality, SaLuSa tells us.

“The final run in to Ascension is one that gives you so many opportunities to tie up your loose ends, and change your mindset to one that is in alignment with the new vibrations. The old you will largely disappear and a beautiful Being emerge that will be ready to ascend. You have worked hard and come along way to reach this point, and it will be a most uplifting experience regardless of whatever you go through to get there.” (15)

As marvellous as Ascension is, it’s not the end of the total journey of life, SaLuSa tells us. Ascension is “an ongoing process.” (16) that “will never cease until you return to the absolute Source.” (17) The cast of millions that have gathered here to assist us and observe our victory are siting on the edge of their seats waiting for the event, SaLuSa reveals.

“We have all traveled far to reach this momentous time in your evolution, and the experience for us will be crowned by witnessing your great joy and happiness. … In fact there will be immense celebrations throughout it, as your upliftment will mean that you can soon join us as fellow Galactic Beings.” (18)

Thus Ascension is an upliftment of consciousness and a refining of energetic vibrations that will see us leave separation and duality at the end of the year and enter into a higher dimension of life on which there is no illness, no disability, no negativity and no other conditions of deprivation or want.

It happens at the end of the universal cycle, which itself occurs at the end of this year. At that time an astral window will open and the Earth and all her inhabitants who so choose and have prepared themselves will find themselves leaving Third Dimensionality and entering Fifth. It’s time now to tie up all loose ends in preparation for leaving duality behind and with it the need to reincarnate and the round of life associated with it. Millions of galactic, celestial and ascended beings have gathered around the Earth to help us and await this remarkable event.

Introduction to Ascension – Part 1/2

2012 April 21
Posted by Steve Beckow

Relatively few people in society know about Ascension, the event that lies at the center of the changes occurring this year, SaLuSa tells us.

“Ascension … is only known to a relatively small percentage of Humankind. Many more have heard about it but it has no real meaning for them. In fact it is often denied as the fanciful notions of dreamers. It is most important that every soul understands what Ascension stands for [so] that each one is able to make an inspired choice.” (1)

Matthew Ward gives us a compact a description of what will happen.

“Most succinctly stated, personal ascension is the merging of your consciousness with your soul. Recognizable aspects are the raising of consciousness; strengthening discernment and trusting intuition; ever-increasing awareness of the higher self, the god/goddess self, and true spirituality; the sensation of peacefulness that comes with living in alignment with your soul contract—you feel this as if you are ‘going with the flow’ instead of ‘bucking the current.’” (2)

Ker-on of Venus describes it as “the opening of a new pathway that is glowing with a Golden Light that is going to become more intense.” (3)  St. Germain calls it “a quantum leap of consciousness that will be all encompassing, and your previous lives will fade away as if a dream.” (4) As a process, SaLuSa says, it “lift[s] you up to levels that are more in line with your true selves.” (5)

Nothing about us will remain untouched, SaLuSa tells us.

“Ascension is simply upliftment into the higher vibrations of the Universe, and it means that you will be part of it unless through choice you decide not to participate. However, as simple as it sounds it has far reaching effects, and nothing will be quite the same again. It is a wonderful event that allows you to move into the beauty and peace of the higher dimensions. It comes as your right, and is an opportunity that will not come around again for thousands of years.” (6)

This Ascension is not an isolated event, SaLuSa tells us; it’s a “mass Ascension, … a very special occasion that only comes up once in every solar cycle.” (7) To prepare ourselves for it, our consciousness will expand in an accelerated manner.

“After thousands of years in this cycle you approach the end times, and yet in the little time left will accomplish more in that period than any other one before. The growth of your consciousness is accelerating all of the time, and we see an overall surge in the numbers of you awakening.

“That is bringing about profound changes for the good, as the Light is becoming stronger, and stronger.” (8)

However, though the process accelerates, we need not worry, he reassures us; “most of you will ease yourselves into the New Age.” (9)

Ascension is not the mounting of a ladder or mountain, Matthew tells us.

“Although this movement is into planes of successively lighter energy, not into progressively higher elevations such as climbing a stepladder or a mountain, souls’ growth in conscious awareness and spiritual clarity can be thought of as upward. Thus ascension is the most descriptive term for this advancement.” (10)

Our bodies won’t be lifted up off the planet, per se. We’ll transfer our consciousness to a higher or more refined energetic level, he says.

“In the context of your planet, ‘Ascension’ is actual movement from one energy placement into a ‘higher,’ or lighter, placement, but the term has been incorrectly used to denote bodies physically lifted off the planet and rising into the ethers.  In the eternal life of the soul, Ascension is spiritual growth, soul evolvement, and each soul experiences this in many places in the universe while ‘Ascending’ into the Oneness of All—a return to our Beginning.” (11)

We’ll ascend in our physical bodies, healed of disease and disability, he reveals.

“Ascension is possible for all who have absorbed the light, and the souls who accompany Earth will do so in their physical bodies. If bodies lack organs or limbs or have physical, emotional or mental disorders, farther along the ascension pathway there will be healing of all disease and replacement of missing parts until the bodies are perfected and mental and emotional health is sound.

“In fourth density the bodies of aged persons will become youthful and live healthfully much longer than your current life expectancy, and life spans in fifth density can be tenfold or more than yours are now.” (12)

What determines whether we ascend or not is not the result of a judgment but solely the result of our choice and assimilation of light, Matthew informs us.

“There is no seat of judgment or arbitrary selection of which humans can ascend and which cannot — it is strictly a matter of science and souls’ own choices. Light changes third density’s carbon-based cellular structure to the crystalline form that lets bodies survive in the higher frequencies, or vibrations, of fourth density and beyond.

“That is why persons who choose to live in the light can ascend with Earth and those who choose to cling to their dark ways cannot.  After a time in spirit, souls in the latter group will incarnate in a world that corresponds to their Earth lifetime energy registration and have more opportunities to ‘see the light.’” (13)

The increasing light is causing a refining of your energies,” SaLuSa says, “and you are finally ready to leave vibrational levels that no longer fulfil your needs.” (14) “The most important thing is to put your efforts into raising your consciousness, so that you can be sure of being ready to ascend. Unless you reach a certain level of vibration, you will be unable to proceed when the opportunity arises.” (15)

What is Ascension?  I’ve re-posted this article by Steve Beckow, the 2012 Scenario.

Why is This Transformational Process Called “Ascension”?

This is one of a series of short, introductory articles on Ascension.

“Ascension” is the name given to the process that forms the culmination of this age or cycle. I’ve seen descriptions of the end times since the 1870s when the spirit teacher “Imperator” (the prophet Malachi) spoke through Rev. Stainton Moses. (1) Subsequent sources such as the Bulgarian master Beinsa Douno, (2) the British Spiritualist guide Silver Birch, (3) and others have also discussed the New Era that’s coming.

The Company of Light (ascended masters, galactics, and celestials) chose the word  to refer to the shift or transformation that will happen on or before Dec. 21, 2012.

The first time I saw the word “Ascension” used was by Sananda, the exalted spirit who often spoke through Jesus and who now commands the Galactic Federation in the Ascension process.  Sananda addressed a class of lightworkers in 1990 who were destined to be early ascenders and had this to say of it.

“These times are quite extraordinary. There is an incredible amount of growth available. The opportunity to take a quantum leap into higher consciousness is now here for you.” (4)

He went on to describe what Ascension was.

“What is Ascension? It is a great leap of experience on every level of your being. In general you could say that it is a leap from third dimensional reality into a fifth dimensional or higher state of consciousness. … You might say that the fifth dimension or higher, the ascended state, is a state of increased frequency of vibration. It is as if you have a prism and you shine white light through the prism, breaking it into many various colors, various wavelengths of light. You could day that the third dimensional existence as you know it relates to that visible spectrum of light that you can see with your eyes, from the violet through the other colors.

“Ascension is a matter of going beyond this limited spectrum of experience. The nature of the universe does not change so much. The laws of physics do not change so much. But you expand and increase your frequency of vibration and your consciousness to a point where you can see those colors and move into those realms that are now invisible to you.” (5)

The Company of Light chose the word “Ascension” to describe a change of dimensionality. The metaphor casts that change as movement upwards; that is, from a lower to a higher dimension or density.  Spiritual teacher Matthew Ward explained that we don’t really climb from plane to plane as if ascending a mountain.

“Although this movement is into planes of successively lighter energy, not into progressively higher elevations such as climbing a stepladder or a mountain, souls’ growth in conscious awareness and spiritual clarity can be thought of as upward. Thus ascension is the most descriptive term for this advancement.” (6)

SaLuSa of Sirius, a spokesperson for the Galactic Federation, says of Ascension that “you rise up higher”  (7) or “you rise up into the higher dimensions.” (8) Our challenge, he says, is “reaching up for the Light.” (9) Ascension, he says, is “a wonderful process…, one that is intended to lift you up to levels that are more in line with your true selves.” (10)

The ascended masters Maitreya and Buddha are cited as describing Ascension this way as well.

“Know that the great Resurrection Dispensation is now in full effect for the Planet Earth and all upon her. All who choose will rise up with the Earth into the Higher Dimensions.” (11)

The master St. Germain also spoke of our “opportunity to leave duality for good and to fully rise up into the Light.”  (12)

Our current Ascension to the Fifth Dimension is part of an ongoing journey of Ascension that will not stop until we finally merge with the God from whom we came, as SaLuSa tells us: “Ascension … will never cease until you return to the absolute Source.” (13)

Ascension is not something new. Once we transition to the planes on the other side of death, we ascend all the time, although we may not use that particular word to describe our forward movement. We progress from one realm to another which is what the word “Ascension” points to.

Here is Frederic Myers, having ascended from the Fourth to the Fifth Dimension on the spirit side of life, telling us that the process of Ascension is continuous and involves choice.

“Between each plane there is this lapse into apparent oblivion, a stilling of all processes, a great calm. … Here the soul seems to pause. Slowly, however, vision returns, the traveller perceives, imaged upon the glimmering sea of eternity, all his experiences on previous planes; all the past images that make up the story of his life are spread before him. He studies them in the light of his Unifying Principle or spirit. They rouse, according to his nature, his varying desires, intellectual and emotional.

“He knows then that he must choose either to go forward or backwards. The spirit actually forces the choice.” (14)

And here is T.E. Lawrence actually describing an Ascension on the Astral Plane, dissimilar to ours in that the individual does not keep his lower-dimensional body as we will but sloughs it off. I’m not clear that Ascension for us will exactly follow the contours of Ascension for Dr. G.

“I had heard about this second death and transition to the next sphere…. Now it seems that I may be privileged to watch it happening to another.” (15)

“The end came suddenly. I called on [Dr. G] and was told that he was sleeping. We stood around and watched his still form and the light which waxed and waned there. In a breathtaking second the change came. The light gathered itself together and burnt itself to a keen thought of light so intense and inward that we gasped and turned aside. Then it had gone and only a wraith of our friend remained which shrank away and disappeared as we watched.

“We sat speechless, absorbed in the beauty and meaning of the transition. It was long before anyone broke the silence and then one said: ‘I have heard that some time is needed for a spirit to get used to the new conditions, just as we needed time to adjust when we first came here, so we must not expect our friend to come to us yet. I suggest that when an interval has elapsed we should meet here again and wait and hope for his coming.’ We agreed to do this and went off full of thought to our various occupations. (16)

“Dr. G. has kept his promise to come to us but he appeared when we were least expecting him. Some few of us were sitting quietly talking when his voice suddenly took up the parable and as we looked up, startled, we saw the outlines of a form which speedily filled in and took substance and there he was among us again.

“He brought with him an exalted air and we felt his presence as a spiritual baptism, a stream of pure joy absorbed hungrily by our thirsty beings. Light and happiness glowed up in us too with the pleasure of heightened being. He stayed only a short while … and left us again.” (17)

We are told that we too will feel this exalted air when we are in the presence of exalted beings like the galactics or the ascended masters of Earth.

So Ascension may be a new process to us, but it is an ancient and well-known process to spirits and galactics. It’s simply that we’ve forgotten all the times we’ve ascended in the past. But our memory will return at some point in the near future. And when it does, we’ll see that “Ascension” is one name, and the name that the Company of Light prefers to use, for a process of spiritual evolution which is the mainspring for our progress from God back to God again.
