Wes Annac: This is Reality, June 27, 2013

I find myself exponentially motivated and completely sure of what I’m here to do, and the resulting metaphysical perception I’ve been able to unlock has been nothing short of amazing.

I surfaced doubts surrounding my mission and sought guidance about them in a channeled interview with the Pleiadians a couple of months back, and since that surfacing, my faith and concrete knowing of the reality of what I’m doing has remained unbridled.

I’ve even been blessed already with my first bold ship-sighting of the summer.

Last summer, I’d routinely look at the sky and would receive gentle and brazen sightings at times, and some of what I experienced and saw came about as a result of telepathic requests to witness sightings.

Thinking back to those sightings alone completely reaffirms my knowledge of the reality of everything that’s been discussed in spiritual circles, which, to an “ordinary” person, would seem bizarre or unreal.

Part of the reason I felt the doubt I did (which has long faded) is because I recognize the seemingly-bizarre nature of much that’s discussed surrounding the Galactics, channeling, etc. to a person who hasn’t been opened-up to the actual reality of these things.

I recognize that to somebody who hasn’t or won’t open up to these concepts and consider them as reality for even a moment, much of what’s discussed could seem near-fantasy. The problem is that we’ve been conditioned to believe-in and accept a certain version of reality.

With the various Earthly things around us, we’re conditioned to accept that what we and billions of others experience must be the only existence, simply because it’s so prevalent and established.

Some people don’t stop to think that humanity, as we function right now, could be heading in a spiritually and physically wrong direction with our disbelief in and near mocking of any concept we perceive as too far outside our current perception.

Perhaps in general, humanity isn’t heading in the best direction as we currently function.

Perhaps our “every man for himself” mindset should give way to one of working in harmony with every fellow citizen of this Earth, and building a society that works for everyone. Perhaps we can work together, rather than the few staying ahead by deceiving and enslaving all the others.

Even to just humor the possibility that what we experience and feel could be a true distortion in the face of what we can experience and build together – maybe we should open ourselves up, collectively, to much of what would seem pure fiction.

If even half of the people on this world individually opened themselves up to the idea and possibility of brimming realms beyond our conscious understanding, and equally-brimming evolved beings who wish to actively assist us in our evolution, perhaps they too could have the experiences I’ve been blessed with having.

As I’ve said before, I recognize that I’ve been given the experiences I have so I can work to help humanity evolve.

I recognize that I’m likely the only person in my town and in the few towns around me who’s actually witnessed a UFO sighting as a seeming response to a request for me to witness one (which has happened multiple times).

Nevertheless, I remain unwavering in my belief.

I recognize that liberal or conservative pundits (there’s corruption on every side) could laugh away the majority of what I believe all day long on television, and have their audiences agree and yet they haven’t experienced what I have.

They haven’t felt the deep states of consciousness a pure meditation provides.

They haven’t felt the equally-deep and brimming states of consciousness a good, long and pure channeling session will provide for the channeler. They haven’t felt the things I’ve felt, which are much, much more real than anything I’ve ever felt or experienced on this Earth.

They just haven’t had the affirming experiences I have, or felt the deep states of consciousness of Heaven enough to believe or know much of what I do, in a concrete manner. I see that this sets me apart from the vast majority of the rest of the collective, and honestly, I don’t see that as a bad thing.

I’m happy to go against the established means to think and live by.

I’m happy to recognize myself as a Divine being in the midst of billions of equally-Divine yet unawakened people, who accept what’s in front of them more than what cannot yet be seen or felt without real effort and belief.

My ego would perhaps panic over the thought of isolation from much of the rest of the world because of what I feel and know, but my heart recognizes that I’m here to uplift this world. I’m here to help everybody who doesn’t and just can’t believe in what so many of you reading this know to be true in your heart, to open themselves up to the truth and reality of their existence.

If I take flack for my stance, so be it. I remain a strong warrior for the Light, and I remain an embodiment of the strength of the Lion-spirit.

I stand strong in my personal Light, and do not falter in the face of a ridiculing or rejecting collective. Rather, I seek to awaken these dear children, or at the very least, to help open them up to something beyond what they see and experience currently.

Like so many others, I see that this is my ultimate mission for being here on this Earth. As such, I remain steadfast and strong in my absolute knowing of the reality of what I believe in, and I continue to receive brazen sightings and genuine affirmations of this very reality.

In short – I think I’ve found heaven on Earth.

Wes Annac – Growing and evolving into greater understandings of the reality of our existence, and seeking to spread the resulting Love and knowledge.

GaiaPortal: Specifics of Gaia Portal Use Entering Hue-manity Mind Patterns… by ÉirePort June 14, 2013

 

 

gaia_portal2

Specifics of Gaia Portal use are entering Mind patterns of those of Hue-manity now open and prepared for travel via these gateways. Ease of mind is key to assuming positions in the desired portal entry points. Natural leadings of those Hue-mans will show each to their intended destination.

As Hue-manity population grows, Gaia Portal application will allow each to communicate and meet in a Higher Visual sense.

Group endeavors, particularly those groups of prior Galactic descent, will enter Gaia Portals of transformation, thus transmuting the final pieces restricting the “humanity (small ‘h’) to Hue-manity” conversion.

humanity (small ‘h’) senses this process, and inherently will not resist, as the whole of humanity (small ‘h’) understands the necessity of this trans-mutational and trans-formational Gaia Portal process.

Matthew’s Message from June 11, 2013

matthewward

Turkey; Syria, other mid-eastern countries; China, USA; National Security Agency; Monsanto Protection Act; President Obama; negativity release; nuclear power facilities; nuclear weapons; Bilderberg conference; Canadian Defense Minister, ETs; Hatonn’s comments

 

With loving greetings from all souls at this station, this is Matthew.  As we address the issues in which readers have expressed greatest interest, please keep in mind that the “negative” end of the duality spectrum is at its zenith; and that energy, once set in motion, must run its course.  You are seeing the combination of individuals with violent tendencies following their intensified urge to commit violence—whether in random acts or leaders oppressing their peoples—and the playing out of energy in many diverse situations around your world.

 

Turmoil in Turkey, ostensibly to protect a park, was instigated by the CIA’s “black ops” to stoke the fire between the Sunnis and Shi’ites and lead to a blazing war. Just as all other countries in your world, Turkey has policies that are not satisfying every citizen, but it is economically sound and progressive—and that’s what the Illuminati want to destroy. Although their global network has come apart at the seams, a few peak individuals are stuck in their delusion that they will take over the entire Mideast and move on to control the rest of the world too. Most assuredly, that will not happen, and when the unrest in Turkey subsides, and it shall soon, some reforms will emerge and further strengthen the country’s progressive path.

 

In mid-eastern countries where the people have ousted despotic or dynastic rulers, freedom is new and it is natural that there is confusion about leadership and governance. Eventually a consensus will be reached in each country and the kind of democratic rule that best suits each will be instituted.

 

Syria is somewhat different because disparate groups are battling the Assad regime—their purpose is the same, but each group has its own agenda, so to say.  When victory does come, there will be a time of severe dissension led by the most radical in the groups until common sense and wisdom prevail; then a coalition will be formed to move the country toward a peaceful stability.

 

China’s interest is not in “economically conquering the USA,” but in dealing with its serious internal issues. Among the world’s major nations economically speaking, China and the United States have the largest internal challenges. Due to its authoritarian nature tempered by clear vision, the Chinese government is working on solutions to its problem areas; due to democracy gone awry, action in the United States in regard to troublesome areas is comparatively at a standstill.

 

This is an appropriate place to address questions that many readers have asked: How can US President Obama defend the National Security Agency’s collection of data from citizens’ private telephone conversations and Internet records?  Why did he sign the Monsanto Protection Act? Congressional actions are public knowledge, but what goes on behind closed doors is not known, and we shall tell you what is relevant to these two situations.

 

President Obama defended NSA’s data gathering, which was authorized in the Patriot Act passed during George W. Bush’s administration, on the authentic basis that it has led to discovering and thwarting numerous terrorist plans. What the president cannot say—and Bush never would—is that the most extensive terrorist acts that met failure and most of the lesser plots that also got shot down were those devised by the CIA faction under Illuminati control.

 

Neither can Obama disclose that ETs are working in the NSA and other agencies in that country and in several others. They are collecting and analyzing information on all Illuminati activities around the globe and using it to weaken their operations and obtain evidence for prosecution. When this has served its purpose—bringing to its final moment the Illuminati reign—the Patriot Act and also Homeland Security will come to an end.

 

As for the Monsanto Protection Act, Illuminati spokespersons told the president that if he vetoed it, Congress would override it. Furthermore, they would intensify their efforts to overturn the Affordable Healthcare Act, block legislation that could relieve some immigration issues, and doom attempts to resolve international conflicts by rational discussions instead of belligerent confrontation.

 

That is the “down-to-Earth” reason, you could say, that Obama signed the bill, but there is another facet of this that the Illuminati bloc doesn’t know. Despite their threats, the president was not going to sign the Act—he did so because ETs close to him advised it. Their higher perspective was that citizens’ outrage at this insidious bill needs to motivate them to force its nullification. The people must exercise their right and responsibility to demand that their elected officials end stubborn partisanship, stop letting lobbyists’ money dictate their votes on legislation, and start serving the best interests of the country.

 

By no means does this apply only to the United States!  Governments in every country must start serving the needs of their people because this goes to the very heart of Earth’s Golden Age and soul evolvement!

 

As mentioned in previous messages, Earth’s populace is in fourth density as far as location, but many have not yet reached this densityconsciously or spiritually. Just as Earth’s ascension was predestined, so was her Golden Age, but when that Age blooms in glorious fullness in your linear time depends upon the people’s collective thoughts, feelings and actions. We cannot emphasize too strongly how greatly your light is needed to help your society advance in conscious and spiritual awareness!

 

The universal law of attraction is an essential part of advancement. By concentrating on dissatisfaction with governing systems’ injustices and nefarious activities, the populace is sending forth energy that is prolonging situations they want to end!  They need to know that by focusing instead on what they want, they generate the energy that will manifest it. They need to be discerning about information from all sources by asking within, where the truth is known as to whether something is fact or fiction, true or false.

 

 

We first spoke of Barack Obama prior to the 2008 primary election in the United States, when we stated that he would be elected president. We have spoken about him numerous times since then, including before the 2012 election when we said he would remain in office and why. After each of our many messages that mentioned Obama went out, my mother was inundated with emails: Advocates of the Republican party’s ideologies vehemently denounce what we tell you about him and his supporters want to know if he can surmount the formidable opposition he faces. Some ask: Is he still a light-filled being?  YES, he is!

 

We shall add a bit to that, but first we say, it is politics that has subjected Earth’s successive generations to wars’ horrendous death tolls and destruction and has created an unconscionably lopsided distribution of your world’s vast riches. We are not overlooking the part that religions have played, but it is those who rule church and state who drive their followers onto the battlefield.

 

For long ages the foundation of your world’s political systems was the madness of conquest and bloodshed, corruption and deception. Eventually it created such a mass of negativity that Earth’s very life was at stake. Gaia, the soul that embodied as your planet, didn’t want her body and all of its life forms to die.

 

Thus, in accordance with Gaia’s request and God’s blessing, far distant civilizations infused the planet with life-saving light and the highest universal council created the master plan for a new era that became known as Earth’s Golden Age.  They asked a soul from a highly advanced civilization to take on one of the most difficult tasks—presidency of the United States, a role that would transcend politics worldwide.

 

Yes, absolutely Barack Obama is as light-filled as when he agreed to accept the mission to right the wrongs in that country and be in the vanguard of world peace-bringers!  Throughout his time in office, he has been diligently working behind the scenes to dismantle the network that enabled the Illuminati to control everything that impacts life in your world. Their power to stymie or completely derail his efforts has been formidable and largely successful, but when their influence within and beyond the Congress ends, you shall see the truth of our words about Obama.

 

 

Now let us put negativity into the context of weather and geophysical events, which you may not have considered as the evidence of change that they are. The intensive light that saved Earth’s life gave her the strength to start releasing negativity via powerful earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and severe storms that resulted in massive death toll and destruction.

 

The last of the “old” negativity was eliminated about six months ago—that’s what enabled Earth to enter fourth density. “New” negativity caused by ongoing violence is being released through a series of earthquakes in areas where there is little, if any, loss of life or land destruction, and the same with volcanic eruptions. More is being dispersed via torrential rainstorms in some areas and wildfires in others—water and fire are Nature’s cleansing elements.

 

Never again will negativity amass on the planet and none of the predicted cataclysms will occur!  The darkness that for long ages enshrouded Earth is gone, but “mopping up” what was left in its wake will continue until she reaches the planes where violence doesn’t exist. She won’t get there next week or next month, but aided by light forces within, on and beyond Earth, she is moving toward that space at a speed that is unique in this universe and all along the way, violence will lessen and so will storms, quakes and volcanic activity.

 

Moving on now to other matters readers are questioning, some time ago radioactive emissions from Japan’s damaged nuclear facility were neutralized to the extent that they posed no new health risks.  Eventually all nuclear power plants, stored waste and other toxic pollution will be technologically dematerialized. In the meantime, crews in your skies are using technology aboard their ships to safeguard nuclear facilities that still are in use.

 

Concerns about countries with nuclear weapons acting rashly, other countries racing to develop or acquire those arms, and accidental launches are totally unnecessary. By Creator’s decree and God’s authorization, civilizations with the ability to prevent deliberate or accidental nuclear strikes will continue doing that.

 

 

During the Bilderberg conference, the Illuminati could scarcely disguise their deepening worries about how much longer they can control banking, lending and investing around the world—they have almost exhausted the means whereby they have been able to keep their fortunes intact. As mentioned earlier, individuals within and outside the NSA have been collecting evidence that the Illuminati acquired those fortunes illegally and unethically; however, until all documentation is presented in airtight cases to the various courts and then justly ruled upon, the funds will remain in Illuminati hands.

 

It was with joy that we heard about the Canadian Minister of Defense’s acknowledgement of the presence of other civilizations! It isn’t known yet how much this may affect the timing of landings and when ETs living among you will indentify themselves. Mother, please insert Hatonn’s reply to your question about this.

 

“As encouraging as that acknowledgement is, it’s not enough for landings tomorrow. The word we got is, you have to put your house in better order first. No one expects you to do it by yourselves—that’s why we’re here!

 

“Suzy, my friend, you know we aren’t going to take over your world but most people don’t. They are curious about us but not convinced that if we landed, it would be to help.  They don’t have a clue about what we’ve been doing for Earth for centuries—they’re more like, Why would ETs be interested in us?

 

“When they see things moving in good directions and feel more confident about what’s changing, they may not be so leery about strangers dropping in. But, that Illuminati propaganda about ‘ETs may seem friendly but they’re going to enslave you’ is still making Internet rounds.

 

“Anyway, the bottom line is, God’s in charge. He will know when you’re ready to welcome us and then give the council the GO sign. We’re even more eager for that than you are, Suzy!”

 

Thank you, Mother, and please copy the link to the short video that also adds energy to speeding the day when you will meet your “space benefactors.” We hope you will feel inspired to support this group’s efforts to spread the word.

 

Our beloved Earth family, billions of souls want the same as you, to live in a peaceful world where everyone’s needs are plentifully met, where all leaders are wise and honorable and life is in harmony with Nature. But they don’t know how to help make the world that way and you do—you are there to be the way-showers!

 

By living from your heart, you are exemplifying to everyone around you that LOVE is the way to create the world that they, and you, want. Remember, in the continuum the era of world peace, joy, beauty, kindness, mutual respect, abundance and marvelous adventure already is!

Love is Power – Message from Mother/Father God via Kathryn May, June 11, 2013

Part 167, Love is Power

Kathryn E. May

Kathryn May

What a remarkable time it is.  The energies we are sending have had an enormous effect, even beyond our greatest hopes.  We are overjoyed at the outpouring of love and commitment on the part of our energetic Lightworkers, and the rapid response they are getting whenever they set in motion a plan which has Love at its center.  For more and more of you, Love has become what you might call the knee-jerk reaction whenever a moment of decision arises. We appreciate you all the more for this.  You can rightfully take credit for real progress in this regard.

We will briefly address a problem which has arisen in the spiritual community which has been troubling to some of you.  The same energies which make you feel as if you are on fire with inspiration, hope and Unconditional Love can also destabilize some.  You are all sensitive, and many of you are tired.  It is a challenging time for those reasons. Although you know how positive our intentions are, and how hopeful the future really is, there are some frayed nerves, which sometimes leads to frayed egos, and unfortunately  it has also led to internet accusations which fly around at lightning speed.  The originators of these accusations will eventually find themselves feeling regretful and apologetic, since those who are aspiring Masters are not expected to behave aggressively, and it is confusing to followers who have trusted their words.

Let us just say here that we stand behind these messages and those who have been closely associated with them.  A group of our Enlightened Ones is collaborating beautifully, with a seamless, loving sense of camaraderie and mutual respect.  You read in their writings and their voices the deep connection with Us and with all of you.  Their Love speaks for itself.

Now let us address your personal issues.  You are all being tested at this time, as your contracts have provided for.  It is a time of great change and great opportunity, and you have long been aware of the importance of being awake, fully conscious of your own responsibility to take command of your own emotions and actions (including, may we remind you, what you say in this powerful medium of communication, the internet).

Pay attention to your language, your attitudes and your speaking habits.  We would like to address this problem of your current cultures – the tendency to be careless about what you say, using the colloquial expressions and emotional terminology which originated in the 3-dimensional life experience you have recently experienced.  Many of those expressions are aggressive or even hostile, with sarcastic and emotionally cutting barbs which you became so used to hearing that you barely notice them.  Need we give examples?  Listen to any conversation on television and you will hear dozens of them, especially on those programs which promote themselves as family comedy and “reality” shows.

In the transition to higher consciousness, you will need to develop an entirely new language – one which has been expunged of the barbarisms of the Twentieth Century.  In addition to the aggressive and insensitive style of conversation, you will also begin to notice the even more pervasive tendency to discuss emotional states of anxiety, stress, depression and anger as if they were normal and inevitable, even though they are distressing.  How tragic a state of affairs, when humankind has accepted the idea that emotional imbalance is a normal way of life!

It is time, Dear Ones, to look more closely at your emotional states and to question whether any of this is true!  You have been convinced by the Dark Ones that misery and suffering is inevitable, so that when it is inflicted on you, you will simply complain to your close companions rather than try to revolt against the cause of that misery.  How clever of them to come between you and your happiness, was it not? What could be more effective a tool of control than to turn everyone against their very natures, their own identities as human beings?

Are you becoming aware of the massive manipulation of your psychology which has been imposed on you over the centuries?  Read on, Beloved Children, we will arm you with the evidence to break the chains of your emotional prisons.

We wish to underline an idea which Kathryn has presented in her recent teachings.  Here is the Fundamental Lie which has enslaved humankind with invisible psychological chains:
Love makes you vulnerable.  If you open your heart you will be hurt.

This, Dear Ones, is a blatant Lie.  There is not a whit of truth to this statement.  Bear with us now – we hear your protests.

Love does not weaken you, it makes you stronger.  Many of you associate these things because when you were children, the people you loved hurt you.  Now, look more carefully.  You were hurt because you were a child, not because you loved.  All children are weak, and therefore are easily hurt.  Adults are sturdy, fully formed and independent in their choices.  If someone does something hurtful, you are free to leave or take action to defend yourself.  A child cannot do that – they are unable to move out, get a job or a room of their own.  A child is vulnerable.  You are not a child.

Many of you will say, “But I was devastated by the breakup of my relationship.”  We would ask “Why?”  If either you or your partner wanted to leave, what are you mourning?  Do you really want to stay with someone who abuses you or does not want you?  Why are you not celebrating?  The end of a painful relationship is the beginning of a new life, not a trauma.  You cannot stand to be alone?  Such protestations describe the reconstituted pain of childhood, not an adult state.  Adults in full command of their feelings do not feel overwhelmed, or vulnerable, or devastated.

You have all been immersed in the Lie that these everyday painful feelings are normal.  You have not been taught as children that when you grow up, everything changes.  When you are grown, all you need is your own brilliant, intelligent and sturdy self and your connection to your I AM Presence, and you will manifest a life of Love, deep fulfillment, and satisfying friendships.  Love will fill your heart, and you will find peace of mind and joy in the strength you feel increasing every day.  The more you love, the more fulfillment comes back to you, and the more unexpected surprises wrapped in Love will be dropped on your doorstep.  Yes, there are bumps in the road, but because you are NOT emotionally vulnerable (you are gaining in wisdom and flexibility), you would, if not for the Lie, increase your capacity to love with every experience of mastery, every obstacle overcome.

Do you see how pervasive this idea is?  You have learned to mistrust your own human makeup, to think of feelings as dangerous, and to believe the lies about chemical imbalances, neurotic syndromes, depressive disease and uncontrollable anxiety, to such an extent that you believe nearly everyone alive is in need of correction by medication.  Would we have created such a being?  One which is incapable of a natural adult command of their own basic functions?

Another tragic outcome of the Lie is that you have come to mistrust each other.  After all, you must be wary of humans, since they are so unpredictable and “sick.”  It has prevented you from sharing freely, from cooperating and trusting.  It has fed racial prejudice, war, competitiveness, the belief that strangers are dangerous, and immigrants cause scarcity and lack.   Even more importantly, it has prevented you from aligning with each other against those who lied to you.

Arise, Dear Children, it is time for a Revolution!  Shake off the stifling Dirty Lies and reclaim your competence.  Turn your attention to your own considerable faculties which protect you if there should be danger in the environment (which you will not longer invite   into your life).  You have powerful radar, which is completely disabled by anxiety.  This is the source of vulnerability in adults: inattention to your most basic self-protective abilities.  Your intuition, which is connected to your soulbody and your heart, is a powerful source of firm self-confidence and accuracy – far more so than your brain.  The brain is a very nice storage facility, but it doesn’t have the intelligence of your heart.

Here is the third area of devastation caused by the Big Lie – the mistrust and disuse of the Heart as the source of higher level judgment than a brain can begin to give you.  It nearly succeeded in separating you completely from Us, and this was the original, most devious intent.  The Fallen Angels intended to be independent from God, and wanted to create an entire planet of like-minded people.  Their goal was separation, darkness, and  a destructive duality.  They nearly succeeded, but you have begun the Revolution by reclaiming your hearts, and the Love is beginning to flow, between and among yourselves, and toward Us.  We congratulate you on your triumph, and urge you to celebrate your Independence Day with new declarations of Love, with fearlessness born from trust in your own strengths and competence.

Let this be the end to anxiety, depression, paranoia, racial conflict, imagined emotional vulnerability, and closed hearts.  Turn with us toward the sun which rises on the New Golden Age of Planet Earth.  We send you our Unconditional Love to intensify and restore your connection to your I Am Presence, which is the God in all of you.

We are Mother/Father God
