Reality cannot occur or appear in the illusion

01/20/2013 by John Smallman

When humanity awakens, as it most certainly will, a state of great joy will envelop you.  You have been working towards this moment for many life times, and you are now very close.  Some of you, in fact quite a large number of you, were very disheartened when seemingly nothing of note occurred in the world on or around December 21st 2012.  This is understandable because so many were attached to an outcome that could be physically observed and measured in the illusory environment that has been your home for eons.

To awaken is to move from the illusion into Reality.  Reality cannot occur or appear in the illusion — it would be like trying to see electricity — it just is not possible. Its effects can be felt or sensed calling you to awaken, and when you do, all will be arrestingly beautiful, stunningly clear, so real that no doubts of any kind will remain that could draw you back into that unreal miasma that seems to have held you bound to it for so long.

Despite your disappointment at not seeing physical evidence of your move into the New Age, that move has occurred.  Many of you are most definitely experiencing an unaccustomed sense of peace and contentment, which some of you find puzzling as nothing appears to have changed physically that could account for it.  Rest assured, an enormous energetic shift has taken place and it is having startling effects worldwide.  The overwhelming desire to live peacefully and lovingly, regardless of the circumstances in which people find themselves, and the energy intent to do so that fills the hearts of humanity has been amplified to such an extent that very few still remain unaffected by it.

It is essential that you keep holding your Light on high.  Even though you may be unable to get any felt sense of it, it does flow out from you with great intensity and affects everyone with whom you interact, and that is how humanity is being brought to the moment of awakening.  Do not underestimate or downplay the effectiveness of your firmly and constantly held intent for all to awaken, because your intent is massively strengthened and intensified by those in the spiritual realms whose sole task is to assist in bringing this momentous event to fruition.  Do not doubt that it will happen because that undermines your intent, thus lengthening the time-line for your awakening.

Doubt is like an intent for something not to happen.  You all know people who are very positive and who always seem to achieve what they intend, and you also know people who are negative or pessimistic who never seem able to have life flow in any way smoothly for them.  That is the power of intent being actively demonstrated.

Frequently, those who are negative or pessimistic in their outlook cannot see that this is the case and are therefore unable to understand why things never seem to turn out in their favor.  It is like a refusal to allow God, the Universe, the Source to provide for their needs.  They believe that they are the unlucky victims of circumstances, and to try and tell them otherwise often only serves to anger or frighten them.  They do not believe in the immense power that your Father installed in each one of you at the moment of your creation.  And of course everyone having a human experience has chosen to learn lessons suited to their needs, so that some of their pain and suffering will be the result of not understanding, or refusing to understand, the lessons with which they are presented.

You cannot and should not try to interpret another’s lessons for them; only they can do that.  You can listen compassionately, and if you feel guided (a very slight but hardly felt intuitive sense) to make a brief comment, then do so.  Do not enlarge on it because that will probably be your ego rushing to the rescue!  You have planted the seed; it is up to the other to nurture it.  Your brief comment is you holding the Light for them, even though you get no sense of it whatever.

Many are seeing poverty, privation, disease, and war, all over the planet, and they are also seeing corporate corruption and incompetence in government, large organizations, and religious institutions failing to help those in need, and to the contrary, actually benefiting from the situation.  That creates a pall of negative intent and energy, and your task as Light-bearers and wayshowers is to dissolve that negative and disruptive energy by your loving and positive intent.  You are fully supported by God and by those in the spiritual realms, whereas those projecting negative intent and energies have far less support than you might imagine, despite the enormous amount of noise that they are making.

Hold the Light firmly at all times and know that the support you have and offer is invincible.  You are on Earth to do just this.  It is your calling, your vocation, and the infinite power of God’s Love for all of His children, constantly supporting them, guarantees that no one will be left behind, abandoned to their imaginary sense of powerlessness.  The realization that they are not weak, helpless, and powerless is definitely breaking through into the conscious awareness of those who feel lost or abandoned, and you Light-holders and wayshowers are greatly assisting that by your intent that it be so.  Be positive, be loving, be the divine being that your Father created, and know that you are doing His Will in every moment, and that success is inevitable.

With so very much love, Saul.

 NOTE BY NANCY:  I consider Matthew’s report essential in comprehending the imprisonment from which Earth emerged around and on December 21, 2012.  For this reason, I’ll attempt to break it down into sections.  I strongly encourage you to set aside some time to thoroughly study this 1/19/2013 report, Matthew’s 9/9/2011 report, Agenda 21, and the two articles I have included.  The information contained in these resources will greatly enhance your understanding of Earth’s imprisonment, your own enslavement, and our release into the Light.  URLs are listed below.  My statements are the underlined portion of this report.


 Earth’s prior imprisonment – from which Gaia requested divine permission to ascend:

With loving greetings from all souls at this station, this is Matthew. Pondering and puzzlement are in some lightworkers’ thoughts. Here you are almost three weeks into your year 2013; not only has nothing occurred in the way of substantial reforms, but there is talk of another war zone and a deadly hostage situation in Algeria, random violence continues and the plight of refugees grows. Don’t those show that Earth still is in darkness?

We thought that our last message covered why your world cannot change as swiftly as some lightworkers had hoped or anticipated. However, the questioning thoughts let us see that in connecting the dots of information in many previous messages, we omitted this dot—the difference between the dark forces, darkness and dark ones.

The dark forces, by far the most powerful, is a gigantic force field of negative thought forms that meanders throughout the universe looking for lesser evolved civilizations to enshroud in darkness. Although this vast field has the ability to manifest into whatever individual forms it envisions, it rarely does because its goal is to capture an entire civilization by enshrouding it in darkness.

Thus darkness is the dark forces’ offspring, you could say, and it can be likened to a cloud cover that is so dense that the people feel lost in the miasma. And indeed they are lost insofar as conscious awareness of their beginnings, of their god and goddess selves and of their inseparable connection with the Supreme Ruler of this universe and all other life forms herein.

The dark ones are the individuals in an enshrouded civilization who have a proclivity toward greed, cruelty and lust for power. The low vibrations of those tendencies form “cracks” in the psyche, and by the universal law of attraction, the cracks permit the entry of the matching negative thought forms that are the makeup of darkness.

Henceforth darkness influences and ultimately controls those individuals’ thoughts, intentions and actions. They become puppets of the darkness and carry out the dark forces’ goal to enslave that civilization through tyranny, fear, deception, corruption and ignorance of truths about their beginnings in Creator, multiple lifetimes, the universal laws or the reality of other civilizations.

 Matthew explains the progress that has been made in clearing the darkness from Earth.  The Light infusion that has saved Earth from destruction began around 1942.

So where are those three dark sources now in relation to Earth?

The dark forces started moving away from your solar system after the infusion of light from far distant civilizations saved the life of your homeland planet seventy-some years ago. That force field left because light is anathema to its very existence—just as lighting a candle in a dark room pierces the darkness, so does the energy of love-light pierce the energy of whatever darkness is nearby.

The dark forces left, but its dense cloud of darkness remained.

Even though the dark forces left, its dense cloud of darkness remained on Earth, which the forces futilely had sought to capture for once and for all. Darkness continued to preclude spiritual and conscious awareness in the collective consciousness, and via the law of attraction, Earth’s residents kept producing the negativity that almost killed the planet.

 The continued infusion of Light from our galactic family since 1942 diffused the cloud of darkness’ density enough to allow Earth to escape her imprisonment in the 3rd dimension.

That changed when the intensive in-beaming of light started diffusing the density of the cloud and gave Earth the energy she needed to jar loose from the depths of third density and begin her ascension journey. Only in recent weeks were the last weak remnants of the cloud transmuted into light and the planet triumphantly passed through the doorway of fourth density.

 Earth ascended into the 4th dimension in December 2012.  The 4th dimension is the plane to which Earth humans go upon leaving the physical body in what we have called death.  Following each physical incarnation, we return to the various planes of the  4th dimension, depending upon the amount of Light within our energy field.  It is from the 4th dimension that Souls reincarnate until they have purified 51% of their negative karma and qualify to step off the wheel of karma/reincarnation into the 5th dimension.

So, now that Earth is in that density, how can it be that violence and unjustness still goes on? It is because the location of a planet is one kind of density and soul evolvement status of each of its residents is quite another. Mother, please insert the date of the message that explains the two densities. [September 9, 2011]

In relationship to Matthew’s 9/9/2011 message, note that the dark onesAgenda 21’s goal is to move Earth’s inhabitants into noisy cities and away from the healing power of nature.  This is an example of the subtly with which we have been enslaved, while being told repeatedly that we are free.  You may learn about Agenda 21 at

Thank you. For all that it may appear that the long-awaited December 21, 2012 was a fizzle because you saw no profound changes, the profusion of love-light that permeated your world during that time was a sight to behold!

 The momentum that Lightworkers & Lightholders felt as we neared December 21, 2012 resulted in a multitude of additional Earth inhabitants being able to ascend into 4th dimension with Earth.  Now, it is up to each Soul to make the decision to purify their energy fields enough to continue the ascension journey into the 5th dimension where ONLY Light, Love, and Peace can exist.

That energy surge kept brightening the collective consciousness until it looked like the noonday sun, fulfilling Earth’s heartfelt desire that at least most of her residents may accompany her along her ascension pathway. Many, many persons who formerly lacked the light that would enable them to go along with the planet are absorbing enough to do so at least for a while longer.

Those who choose not to purify … not to move beyond the 3rd dimensional modalities of life will—by the Universal Law of “Like attracts Like”—be attracted to another planet where they can continue to live the 3rd dimensional way of life.  The present transition period within the 4th dimension is the opportunity for these individuals to make their decision and prepare for ascension into the 5th dimension.

Those referred to as the “dark cabal” or “Illuminati”had agreed in their Soul Contract to turn to the Light and to do so around year 2000.  They refused.

Now we speak again about the dark ones. On Earth they are the individuals who about ten years ago refused to honor their soul level agreements to join the light forces after providing the masses the opportunity to complete third density karma. They continued to wreak havoc throughout your world by such means as controlling governments and the global economy, releasing laboratory-designed viruses, manipulating weather and initiating earthquakes, starting wars or reigning over tyrannical regimes.

Although some members of the dark cabal continue to be on Earth, they cannot last long because their bodies will be unable to withstand the intensity of the energies as Earth moves closer to the 5th dimension.

During the in-pouring of love-light energy, those few individuals who still are among you absorbed little more light than they had, which is only the spark that is their life force. But it was enough extra for their bodies to physically survive in the first wisps of fourth density where Earth is at this moment. If they do not absorb more of the light’s brilliance that will keep intensifying along the planet’s ascension course, their bodies will not be viable much longer.

Many “good people” benefitted from the recent energy surge, but believe themselves to still be living on the 3rd dimension.  They continue life as they previously knew it with all of the fear of terrorists, gun control, immigration, women and minorities having equal rights, the fiscal cliff, on and on ad infinitum.  In other words, they continue to believe the lies they are fed by the mainstream media and the dark ones.  They know not how to think for themselves.

The majority who benefitted from the energy surge are “good people” who are greatly concerned about world affairs as depicted in your mainstream media and scary disinformation on the Internet. They have not yet “seen the light,” to borrow your expression—they are living in godly ways but still are viewing your world at 3D level mentally and spiritually.

 Others continue to follow orders from those they have been taught to consider authorites.  They have accepted the concept of enemy and that they must fight to protect their families and “freedom.”  Others feel conflicted, but continue to follow orders because doing so is the means by which they support themselves and family.   

Others who still are “in the dark” in those respects are following authorities’ orders; they haven’t absorbed enough light to rise above their indoctrination to obey without question. Some have been inculcated with the belief that it is their responsibility to seek revenge for assaults on their ancestors, communities, countries.

Then there are those who are conflicted—they realize that what they are doing is against the common welfare, but they depend upon those sources of income to provide for their families.

Those various states of mind along with massive environmental damage are the natural “aftermath of millennia of darkness,” as stated in our last message.

It remains to be seen how much light and purification these individuals will be willing to absorb … how much they will be willing to change so they can continue to remain on Earth as she ascends to the 5th dimension.  Ascension is a freewill choice, not an inevitability. 

It remains to be seen how much light the aforementioned persons will be receptive to, what their free will choices will be, and the amount of light will determine how far each will be able to travel with the planet into successively higher vibrations. But please keep in mind what we have stated before: For a variety of reasons known only at soul level in most cases, many light-filled persons will choose to leave Earth rather than continue ascending physically.

 Why has there been so much anticipation regarding Earth’s ascension?  Why do we need to work toward ascending to the 5th dimension?

Now we shall explain why we have often stated that in speed and scope, Earth’s ascension out of deep third density is unprecedented in this universe.

With the exception of her experience, traversing that density where darkness is so deeply entrenched is an extraordinarily long, arduous trek.

Matthew gives the example of another planet whose inhabitants warring ways almost destroyed the planet.  Unlike Earth, that planet did not have the assistance of their galactic family.

 We cite another world’s experience. Like Earth’s ancient peoples, that civilization also descended from a higher density in spiritual and conscious awareness to the brink of planetary destruction due to the onset and continuation of warring. They did not have the aid of our universal family, and successive generations spent almost 50,000 years rising out of deep third density before they reached fourth. It took that long before there was sufficient light in the collective consciousness to lift the civilization and their planet into that higher density.

Mother, for readers who would like to know more about that civilization’s history, physical appearance, culture, government and so forth, please mention the book with the lengthy message from a representative of its current population. [“Aeschyles” chapter in Illuminations for a New Era].  Scroll down page to this book.

Thank you. Earth and her life forms have had an unparalleled amount of help ever since ascension started in the late 1930s. It began with the lifesaving infusion of light from many powerful civilizations and has continued through the various means of help we have enumerated in previous messages.

Only a comparative handful of your populace knows about that assistance, but other accomplishments of the light are indeed evident. As it kept increasing on Earth, more and more of you generated your own light with greater forcefulness, and you lightworkers have made enormous strides in subduing the effects of darkness by exposing the dark ones’ activities.

To your great accomplishments that we have heralded previously we add the global spotlight you are shining on the need to uplift the status of women and to end the proliferation of weapons. These heavily negative aspects of your society that long have been dominant in the collective consciousness now are in the forefront of the public eye.

Generation after generation after generation tolerated unjust cultural laws and practices that demean women and accepted perpetual warring and violence as “that’s just life.” Now the voice of your society worldwide is saying Stop!

Earth humans could not have experienced their freewill choice to live on a plane of duality—good and evil—without some Souls agreeing to play the role of the bad ones, the sick ones, or the dark ones.  They play these roles in fulfillment of their Soul Contracts.  Thus, Matthew’s references to the recent events that have stimulated the public’s outcry for gun control, women’s rights, children’s rights, etc.

Light beings throughout this universe honor the myriad souls who agreed to participate in the multitude of tragic situations that have stirred the peoples to take bold steps forward in those two areas and all others where change so sorely has been needed. The souls who accepted those exceedingly harsh missions did so with unconditional love and they leapt forward in soul growth.

 At this moment and in accordance with what Earth’s history has heretofore been, Matthew states it will take time for Earth humans to come to agreement to transform our world.  All prophecy is made on the basis of the probabilities energetically evident at any one point in time.  For this reason, Earth humans can make the decision to speed up the process by willingly coming together in cooperation as the One Family of God.  We can choose to cast aside all things that separate us—that urge us to choose sides and compete.  Our willingness to do so will determine how quickly the changes will be made.

Just as you, we wish that all necessary changes could happen overnight. It will take many negotiators, many discussions and some logjams before all hearts and minds are in accord. The Golden Age master planners knew that you couldn’t transform your world any way other than step by step, and at soul level you and everyone else on Earth knows this too.

Even with extraterrestrial aid, a third density civilization evolving into a peaceful peoples living in harmony with Nature is a transitional process. All along our messages and answers to readers who questioned this have been the same—changes will come incrementally.

The following excerpt from the June 2, 2007 message recently was emailed to my mother by a new reader who “just happened to see this.” He also wrote that this information should be in more messages, we shouldn’t expect people to remember what is in the old ones.

“Is 2012 the end of Earth’s ascension and completion of all transitional phases into the Golden Age?”

All darkness will have been transmuted and Earth’s and individuals’ balance attained, but it is not correct that after the year 2012 everything achieved up to that time will remain unchanged henceforth. Remember, the only constant in the universe IS change. Spiritual and intellectual growth and technological progress will continue—you wouldn’t want it any other way!

Our beloved Earth family, never have we expected you to remember all of the information we have offered! Not only are your days filled with a wide range of responsibilities to think about, but linear time is passing faster and faster. That is why so often we have repeated what is essential for you to know, and it has included that the glories of the Golden Age are not all sitting on its doorstep and that one day will not differ dramatically from the day before and the day following.

Many of us did read Matthew’s June 2007 message as meaning that all negativity would be gone from Earth by the end of 2012.  It is very helpful to know that the shift of the ages that occurred on and around December 21, 2012 truly did cast Earth “out of 3rd dimension” and into the 4th, where much Light & Love exists and where the higher sections of the 4th are what we have heretofore called “heaven” for those who were not ready to ascend into the 5th and higher upon death to the physical body. 

To avoid any possibility of misinterpretation, we say that we could have been more exacting about “balance attained” in that June 2007 message. Although the preceding material was in the context of third density conditions, we could have specified that balance will be attained so that Earth and her residents can ascend out of third density. As microcosms of the universe, which always is in a balancing mode, you too will continue balancing as your spiritual and conscious awareness keeps expanding.

What was awaiting you on the doorstep of the Golden Age is the effect of the energy surge during the December solstice that transmuted the last of the darkness into light. This new abundance of light is increasing the momentum in Earth’s energy field of potential toward manifestation of marvels you and your universal family will be co-creating along Earth’s journey through fourth density and on to her destination in fifth.

We don’t know how long it will be before Earth is joyfully back home where the planet and its soul, Gaia, originated. It is logical to ask, since we knew when the planet would exit third density, why don’t we know when it will reach its destination?

Now that Earth is in the 4th dimension, it is up to you and I to determine how long she remains.  Do we want to transform our world quickly or do we choose to meander along?

Earth’s ascension to this point was predestined so she would reach the narrow celestial window when the planetary alignment would enable her to enter fourth density. Now that she is in this density, where darkness cannot assault her with its negativity, her journey henceforth is within a safe harbor, so to say, where are no “time” constrictions.

Just as before—always!—her residents’ journeys depends upon the choices each makes, and the cumulative choices make up the collective consciousness. So, it is your thoughts, passionate feelings and actions that will set Earth’s pace from now on. Whether that is happily humming through fourth density or soaring like an eagle, Gaia is jubilant—the exceptionally difficult leg of the ascension is over!

Note that Matthew includes ACTIONS—our actions—as one of three criteria determining how quickly Earth moves from 4th into 5th dimension. 

 One of the most frustrating characteristics of what has been called the New Thought community is a misunderstanding that positive thinking means not giving attention to the negatives within our world.  How many times do we hear, “I don’t get involved with politics because it is so corrupt.”  As a result of millions of truly positive thinking individuals NOT getting involved, Earth’s political situation is still very corrupt.  When only corrupt people get involved, the end result is corruption.

 The length of time Earth remains in 4th dimension depends upon positive thinking people getting involved and taking ACTIONS.  Until Earth ascends to the 5th dimension, where our “thoughts” truly do immediately manifest, we must combine our thoughts with ACTION.  I hope you will study these articles: 

 “Attempting To Focus Only On The Positive

Creates Imbalance”


“How Do We Focus On The Negative In

Order To Achieve Balance?”


You, too, can feel jubilant—your steadfastness in the light added immeasurably to this stunning achievement. Although in linear time you will continue to progress toward your goal of a loving, harmonious and healthy world with abundance for all, in the continuum you already are victorious. When you have full understanding of how unique this achievement is, you will know that if ever souls could declare “job well done,” it is you lightworkers!

We hold you in honor and unconditional love as we continue accompanying you, albeit unseen, every step of the way.
