Greetings, we are the Council of Nine.
We come today to address the rapid advancement of those who are
undergoing the more advanced stages of ascension. This is occurring due
to the magnificent effort by those involved in receiving the light
codes and frequency upgrades being absorbed by your planetary body and
your individual physical forms as the Cosmic waves come crashing upon
the shore of your blue-green planet.
Additionally, more and more humans are waking up. This is evident to
those who have been on the path of awakening for decades. Suddenly
people who would have never considered doing research on disputed
topics, are now delving into all kinds of avenues, searching for
answers, questioning everything about their lives and what is going on
in the world.
It is important that although YOU have been on the path for an
extended period of time, you may not have the answers for these
individuals. Let them search out their answers on their own. We remind
you that the New World does not have guru-student relationships.
Individuals are held responsible for their own studies and are
encouraged to seek multiple ways of exploring, without settling on “the
Way”, as the path to be followed will differ for each person. Only the
Soul and overseeing Monadic Presence knows what the purpose of this
lifetime is and how that individual might fulfill it. The timing and
direction will differ for each, so it is best not to compare your
“progress” with others.
You will sense when you have come to a new stage in your personal
development. The path less worn is often more suited for some, while
others are more comfortable working within a group environment; only you
can determine what is best for you… and realize that your preferences
may change depending on those with whom you develop connections and your
own inner nudges and hunches as your intuition “speaks” to you.
We encourage all light workers, whether experienced or just starting
out, to use your discernment and to learn to rely heavily on your own
intuition as to where to step next.
Know that the Galactic Federation, the Ascended Masters and other
beings of Light cannot tell you in advance what is to happen, as that
knowledge would influence the outcome and change the result. Do you
understand this, dear ones? Your scientists have witnessed this effect
during experiments. The thoughts held by the participants can alter the
expected outcome. Also, to reveal what is to occur, even tomorrow, is
to give advance notice to those who still work in opposition to the
advent of the Light forces upon this long darkened planet. So, learn to
be patient, listen within, test the waters, experiment and learn to
trust the ability of your intuition and inner guidance to show you the
way, step by step.
The path demands adaptability, flexibility, tenacity and
determination, patience, perseverance, trust, faith, compassion and a
great willing to love unconditionally. Ascension will not be handed to
you on a plate like a piece of chocolate cake. However, with openness
of mind and heart, you WILL begin to see synchronicities and participate
in the opportunities that emerge for you if you keep alert AND are
willing to step outside the boundaries in which you have long played
while living a life in the third dimension.
Also, realize that no one way fits all. Talented and experienced
lightworkers have created “ascension” material for others to follow, but
it does not always suit… as our scribe found out much to her momentary
dismay. However, she is much used to going her own way and as result,
expects it of others who follow in her footsteps.
You might see these steps that are taken on an individual basis as a
means to sort out those who are truly dedicated to the process and those
who are simply enamoured by spiritual attainment and blinded by
spiritual pride. The pitfalls along the path are many and are designed
to test the ability of the initiate to truly embody the qualities that
are required for mastery, as well as the responsibility that comes with
Know also that if you do appear to stumble that it isn’t the end of
the world; you have not necessarily “failed”. Simply shake yourself
off, reflect on the outcome of your “mistake” and go forward. Growth in
spiritual dimensions will often seem chaotic when viewed by the eyes of
someone who is more comfortable with a structured learning environment.
And this chaos and the resulting confusion will grow if the individual
is unable to move beyond their self-imposed boundaries of understanding
and inability to adapt.
The fifth dimension and higher frequency worlds are more fluid in
their existence. Things do not always remain the same and are hard less
“concrete” that what you have experienced in the lower frequencies,
slowed-down density of the third dimension, especially as it exists on
planet Earth for most people. As you rise in frequency, you will
change; it is inevitable. And you will change in unexpected and
unpredictable ways as you endeavor to follow your personal “star”
towards the higher planes of existence. You will be unable to
categorize yourself as one thing or another, especially as you take on
the energies of your Higher Self, as you are a multi-dimensional being.
Various “aspects” of self will take priority over others depending on
the circumstances involved. This approach to life takes some getting
used to, so ascension or descension of spirit into the physical body, as
is currently taking place on planet Earth, is only undertaken in
increments, to allow both body and mind to adapt to the changes.
If you were to change into a light body tomorrow upon waking chances
are you would no longer be embodied. Such was the pattern that existed
for most initiates in “past” eras when there occurred both individual
and mass ascensions. The physical body was left behind and the light
body disappeared into the unseen realms. Now what is occurring on GAIA
is the beginning of physical ascension, bringing heaven to earth by
allowing the Higher Self to completely enter the physical vessel AND
remain there, in charge of the lifestream’s mission here. This process
is an intricate, delicate and lengthy one, especially for those who go
first. They have, for the most part, prepared for such an occurrence,
for life times and for decades in this lifetime.
There are souls who have been birthed into this world during the last
thirty years who are currently discovering that when they do wake up,
the process occurs quite rapidly. One day they are working in a
corporate world; the next, they are studying Reiki on a beach in Maui or
in the midst of building a cooperative community in Central America.
This can and is happening to older persons as well, those who have had
successful careers and suddenly discover that there is something big
missing from their lives. For each individual the wake-up call and
process is slightly different, as is the purpose for their being here.
And it is up to the individual involved to discover these things, the
whys and wherefores on their own.
The path of ascension is one where the individual releases what no
longer works for them, undergoes a period or periods of clearing,
becomes self-empowered and acquires and uses the needed tools to tackle
the challenges that come along. And come along they will; each initiate
will be challenged daily in some way to see if they can use creativity
to overcome any and all obstacles.
Many of those who have incarnated upon this planet at this time and
for the last six decades or so, have done so out of a desire to assist
in freeing this planet from the darkness which has kept it a backward
and isolated place from the rest of the Galaxy and Universe. This is a
task that was undertaken originally through love, but in the process of
incarnation has been forgotten by many. Now, people are beginning to
remember, sometimes vaguely, that there is something they should be
doing than what they are doing at the moment. As the frequency levels of
the planet rise, more will awake but just when that will occur will
depend on each individual involved. For with ascension, as each person
acknowledges the desire to ascend, they must also acknowledge the need
to assume responsibility for their own path and to accept the
self-determination that is demanded of all those who would attain high
station in the spiritual realms.
Ascension is not a way to escape the world if you are unhappy. If
you hope that it is, you will be sorely tested until you open to the
realization that your Soul is the creator of your world, not your
“human” self. And your soul knows very well just what it will take to
release the human conditioning, needs and wants, in order for the
individual to truly buckle down and do the work that is required through
the ascension process.
Initiation (ascension) is self-mastery and is not completely
instantaneously. When you do arrive at genuine self-mastery, you will
open up to what has been referred to as magic, the ability to instantly
manifest whatever is required in the moment. However, this can ONLY
take place when the time is right and the human ego is no longer in
command of the physical vessel; then, and only then, when “you” as a
soul-infused individual are ready and prepared, will you be able to
experience “miracles” as you become in truth a sacred alchemist. These
gifts are sealed until each initiate is ready and has been thoroughly
tested, for the Brotherhoods and Sisterhoods of Light do NOT want a
repeat of the misuse of creative energies as occurred on Atlantis and
The higher worlds have much to offer, but it is here, on Gaia, where
you are tested, individually, for your personal initiative, creativity,
and determination and the will to move your personal mountains
(challenges) in order to be able to truly serve humanity. And that
service starts with self, learning self-respect, releasing
self-judgment, accept personal empowerment, releasing all that no longer
(and maybe never did) serves you, releasing all conditioning that has
emanated from “outside” of you. In other words, you create your own
learning environment, from a soul level, as you progress along the path.
The delicate art of “listening” to your inner guidance is necessary
and the lessons will repeat themselves over and over until you “get it”
and are willing to accept this very necessary surrender to a higher will
than that of your human personality.
Ascension is a challenging process but highly rewarding. And with
this opportunity to physically ascend, you have raised the bar higher
for yourself. Each person who succeeds in creating and embodying as
light body on the planet will be making it easier for those who follow
them, but there will always be challenges to overcome. Those light
workers who are in the ranks who are near or have already experienced a
step in their ascension process where they can experience other
dimensions and realities at will, are setting a pattern or path for
others to follow in their footsteps. They are re-setting the frequency
levels needed to obtain the same results. Each individual who succeeds
doesn’t lower the bar necessarily but assists in raising the frequency
levels of the entire planet. As a result, the humans who are able to
adapt to the rising vibratory levels have done so because of THEIR
preparations, mostly done unconsciously and at inner levels (the etheric
planes during dreamtime). Those who have not prepared (due to their
soul agenda NOT to ascend in this lifetime) will simply leave and find
themselves living on another world. There is no end to spirit as all is
Some have called this process the separation of the worlds and so it
is, although they will not “physically” separate intially. Rather the
separation will be by frequency and alignment with the energies. For
quite a long time, the two worlds (or more) will exist side by side,
simultaneously. This phenomenon will confuse people greatly if they are
not aware or willing to see and especially, to feel what is occurring.
This stage has already been reached for some and they will soon find it
too difficult to continue on and so will find some way to leave the
planet. There is no reason to judge these individuals as their soul
purposes differ from your own. They will reincarnate in the New World
when and if it is the will of their Soul and Higher Self to do so, in a
new and more adaptable physical vessel, attuned to the higher energies
We encourage all of those who feel that they are ascending to release
any sense of false pride or to compare you with others who might appear
to be still asleep. Potentially they could surprise you and overtake
you in attainment at a rapid pace once they wake up, as each soul has
the capacity to adapt and put into effect the gifts and graces earned
during other embodiments, whether here or in other planetary systems.
As you rise up in frequency, these “gifts” are unwrapped and revealed
for each of you to use for the highest good of all, including self as
you develop. With growing confidence and initiative you will soon
discover that you are, indeed, a force to be reckoned with.
There is much we could say, but we will finish up for now, as our
scribe needs her well-deserved rest and relaxation for the day.
Meanwhile, do take it to heart that we are here to assist each of you,
as are your brothers and sisters of the Light, as members of the Ashtar
Command and Galactic Federation of Light, as the Ascended Masters of
Gaia, as Archangels and legions of angelic beings, as elementals and
formless powers, all who long to see this beautiful world take her place
among the Christed Star Nations.
We send you our blessings and freely lend our energies to ease and
guide you if permission is granted as this remains a planet of free
will. You are each a sovereign being and as such we respect, admire and
adore each of you as you venture forth on a magnificent journey of
To each of you we send you our love. We await the time to come when
we can walk side by side through the beautiful flower-filled valleys of
the New World and gaze upon the magnificent golden cities of light that
are being constructed there right now. Now we bid you good day. Look
to us to greet you in the etheric temples as you sleep beloveds.
