Hi Amazing Friend,

This entire year has been full of powerful shifts that have shaken us to our core, and September was one of the most intense months we’ve experienced so far.

Many people have reported feeling disoriented, dizzy, and exhausted, and perhaps more sensitive or emotional than usual.

Each time we travel through these shifts, we detach more and more from the old energy structure, which has kept us from living as our authentic selves.

Though it may look or feel like things are falling apart in different parts of the world, or even our own lives sometimes, the changes occurring right now are not only shifting our core priorities and beliefs. They’re shifting the inner heart of life on our planet.

This is a time of amazing transformation. We are seeing a miraculous rebalancing of humankind’s Feminine and Masculine energies.

[Here we’re speaking of Feminine and Masculine energies in the Universal sense. We’re looking past physical identities and social roles right now, and speaking purely about higher energies.]

And how do we know this is happening?

A Whole New Self-Image

Have a look around right now, and you will see that almost everywhere in the world, the old ideas are being completely rewritten, as we adjust to an outpouring of the Divine Feminine presence upon the Earth.

Systems that were once based on the low, dense outlook of separateness and service to self are now having to either completely reinvent themselves by integrating with these higher energies, or simply dissolve.

Let’s look at the Middle Eastern, Asian, and African countries. So many women in these countries are beginning their own businesses and becoming leaders in their communities now, and protecting women’s right to education and healthcare.

In the Western countries, governments, banks, and monetary systems are being pushed into higher levels of honesty and transparency.

Around the world, there are millions of conscious businesses forming now. These are holding the intent of serving the world and giving to others, instead of being centered on just taking from others.

We are seeing this rebalancing now, because Earth has entered a whole new era.

A New Era Begins

As you know, thousands of years ago, Earth was a peaceful, global society. Humans, animals, plants, the Earth—everything coexisted in peace. The basis of life was love, unity, honesty, respect, and service to others. People honored both the Divine Feminine and the Divine Masculine.

But over time, this perfect balance was released and forgotten. People began to increasingly disconnect from their true identity. They disconnected from the Earth, and from one another. Human consciousness fell from the higher dimensions to the very low third dimension.

The thousands of years that followed this fall into the density of the third dimension were an era that I call “the Great Forgetting.” This was the start of human beings forgetting that they carried Divinity in them. That they were Divinity itself, expressing in physical form.

As they took on the third dimensional perspective, they got increasingly caught up in fear, defensiveness, and separateness. Life was no longer about joyful, conscious creating. It became centered around pure survival.

We also came to form low, dense ideas about Feminine and Masculine energies. We began to see them as separate, and even opposed to one another. Masculinity came to be viewed in terms of control, domination, manipulation, greed, and competition, which created a global “Us vs. Them” mentality.

People came to overvalue outer accomplishment, such as winning battles and competitions, as well as blood sport, ownership, clan loyalty, physical strength, and aggression.

At the same time, we viewed Feminine energy as being inferior to outer strength, action, and control. We saw Femininity as weakness, and nearly all females as being made for subordination and subservience—a life of obedient silence.

Our perfect integration of Masculine and Feminine was lost, as we allowed the lower, denser aspect of Masculine energy to control everything. It made the rules for our economic systems, governments, education, religions. It even controlled our thought processes and our actions as individuals.

Yet all of this was simply part of the role we had created for ourselves, for whatever we would eventually learn and gain from playing out this game of forgetting our true selves.

Because no matter how deep we seemed to fall into separation and duality, a part of us—our Spirit—never fully forgot who we are.

Our beautiful Spirit knew that eventually, over different lifetimes and experiences, we would one day fully acquire all the learning and higher wisdom we had chosen to learn, and remember our Divinity once again.

And over the past few decades, an astounding healing has been taking place.

We have been steadily releasing the old outdated belief in the separateness and inequality of Feminine and Masculine energies.

We are seeing an even bigger upgrade—a massive shift in the collective consciousness. Billions of people around the world are now remembering and anchoring the highest aspects of both Feminine and Masculine energies in every area of life.

The Sacred Feminine and the Sacred Masculine

So what are the sacred Feminine and sacred Masculine energies, in their highest forms?

The Feminine is the creation spark that anchors the spark of Divinity in everything. It is the powerful force that manifests the visible from the invisible realms, using the gifts of creativity, love, beauty, and nurturing.

The Masculine is the activation of that design, demonstrating higher design through intent and outer action.

When the Feminine and Masculine energies combine in effortless co-creation, they bring Divinity into outer form, in all its amazing manifestations.

However you might be seeing or experiencing it right now, know that what is happening to you is the end of the Great Forgetting.

We are now seeing the beginning of the Great Remembrance.

The Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine energies are again interweaving into a perfect joined flow. What we are all experiencing is simply a beautiful rebalancing of those two energies.

On a deep level of our collective being, humanity has now decreed that the Divine Feminine must be allowed, respected, and even celebrated. And the Great Mother within each of us has not only heard, but responded.

The Divine Feminine has now reawakened in human consciousness.

As a result, even our individual priorities are shifting powerfully. Many people are feeling a strong pull to redefine their purpose in life. They are no longer settling for a life that doesn’t bring them joy and fulfillment.

It’s true that this kind of inner shakeup, which is a redefining of your inner purpose, is a big move, and it can leave many feeling shaken and confused.

But this great inner shift means that soon, each person will clearly see the path they need to take in order to live out their higher purpose.

A Whole New Blueprint

Many men who used to embody a great amount of the old Masculine energies are now quickly realizing the old ways no longer work anymore—or that they are simply no longer allowed.

Some men (and women who mainly embody Masculine energy) are finding it difficult to transition out of their old Masculine identity, because they are still living almost completely in their mind and ego.

Yet increasing numbers of men are responding to the energies now flowing powerfully throughout the Earth. They are opening up to intuition, heart-based realizations and motivation, and the ability to nurture others.

The current energies are giving them the chance to embrace, love, and unite with the Divine Feminine energy, so that they can release the old wounded masculinity and embody the new, higher blueprint of Divine Masculine energy.

This new Divine Masculine lives in perfect balance with the Divine Feminine. It both values and lives from the heart and the intuition, and the creativity, respect, and service to others that flow from them.

Both women and men who have allowed others to control them for thousands of years.

But now, whether it’s in their marriages, friendships, or in the workplace, people are no longer tolerating domineering or other low, dense behaviors anymore. They are standing up for themselves, speaking from the heart, and stepping into the power of their true, balanced, authentic selves.

Another amazing shift happening right now, is that many women are noticing that the men who are accepting and embodying the Divine Masculine energies in their lives are more often treating them like Goddesses.

These men are giving themselves permission to give to and honor women, in ways they may never have explored before now.

If you are receiving this special attention from the men people in your life, give yourself permission to enjoy and receive this kindness! It’s long overdue, and it’s part of the new balance that you are also demonstrating now, as you allow Masculine energy to honor you in new ways.

Both males and females are adjusting to this rebalancing of energies. If we are experiencing an inner struggle in this area, that might be due to not fully embracing the Divine Feminine within ourselves.

There are many ways to do this. Expressing ourselves through dance, art, music, spending more quiet time with Mother Earth, or doing helpful volunteer work with children or animals, are all wonderful ways to open up to an expression of the Divine Feminine.

It’s also very important to nurture our physical, emotional, and mental bodies right now, so that we can more easily ride the wave of the Divine Feminine energies pouring in at this time, allowing these shifts to flow through us.

It’s essential right now that we nurture ourselves. Because that is a huge part of anchoring the Divine Feminine energy in ourselves and in the world.

Each of has our own unique way of nurturing ourselves, whether it’s breakfast in bed, taking a day off work to relax, meditating and talking to our guides, absorbing the beauty of Mother Earth, or whatever nurtures us in a positive way.

Nurturing ourselves naturally leads us to nurture the world around us.

Even when these shifts seem huge and challenging, know that in this amazing, Earth-changing moment we are stepping into a new era.

And we chose to be here to experience it!

Till next time,

Miraculously yours,

Emmanuel

Third Wave

Preparing for the Third Wave and Timeline Shift

by Sandra Walter, Creative Evolution

August 18, 2016

sandra walter third wave 2016

Blessings Beloved Light Tribe,

Our third wave of 2016 will be very significant to our Ascension process. There is much light intel presenting for this particular Gateway, here are the details.

Timeline Shift: Over the last few months the intel has been reminding us about the timeline possibility available in September. The strongest wave of Light in decades is about to enter our realm, and it brings pre-agreements set in place, by us, to make a choice between acceleration or a steady unfoldment.

These collective timeline splits have occurred several times throughout the Shift. Typically these decisions are in the hands of Gatekeepers and the Galactics; we review how the collective is doing, what they can handle, and adjust accordingly. Now that there are so many awakened, so many engaging with Ascension practices and heart-based patterns, the acceleration can be more dramatic. However, it must be a conscious choice of the High-vibe Tribe to accelerate the Ascension timelines. We need to choose before the wave enters in September, because the light will be encoded properly for the experience we choose.

As a Gatekeeper and Liaison for this intel, I ask everyone to choose their experiences wisely, because the next wave also presents a timeline split – a division of experiences of Ascension. We always have unique-to-you experiences in this realm, because you are Creator-In-Carnate, however a division is presenting and we have the chance to shift everyone to a more expanded, heightened experience of Divine Love as the Ascension unfolds upon Gaia.

Timeline possibilities are numerous, however on occasion we have trigger points in the Shift where higher vibrational timelines present for the collective choice. Each has numerous possibilities for how they play out, however the main experiences are described below.

There are two main timeline possibilities presenting for the September Gateways:

1. An accelerated Christed Ascension timeline which will speed up the process and prepare a greater number of souls for the 2017 dimensional shift. This involves accelerated clearing, full disclosure and heightened embodiment experiences for those participating in Ascension.
2. An Ascension timeline (they are all Ascension timelines at this point) which steadily allows for collective unfoldments (slower rate, less Divine intervention). This may be frustrating for many awakened however a good learning tool for patience and collective action.

Gateways, like timelines, have always been about possibilities; opportunities of us to accelerate/level up or keep the steady pace of the Shift. Conscious actions of many awakened Lightworkers have continually leveled up the collective by proxy, raising the bar through Gatework, Gridwork, and the constant Global and personal activity of heart-based Ascension practices. The first two waves of 2016 knocked many Lightworkers off balance, and many are absorbed in their own experience of the physical. If your intention is Unity Consciousness, it is time to reunite with HUmans however you can and spread the Lovelight you have Mastered. Do this in alignment with the New Light; repeating old light habits or creations will feel like madness.

How to choose the higher accelerated timeline for all:
Align all of you words, deeds, actions, thoughts with Love. Learn this Now and practice it each moment.
Revisit your Ascension practices and keep the Soul-Spirit-Form trinity fully engaged with its Christed embodiment.
Avoid emotional entanglement with the lower timeline activities (media, politics, financial issues, emotional triggers, etc.) Care, but don’t carry.
Galactic Council members: Bring this up in your meetings, renegotiate your contracts to align with the acceleration, assemble your Teams and ask for their full support of the accelerated timeline. (Take note of who resists – that can be telling.)
Get out on Gaia and co-create with her and your fellow Humans. Call forth the unfoldment of the accelerated timeline. This is a Gatekeeper practice for when timeline splits present; call forth the higher reality to reveal itself to all. It already exists as a possibility, now we light-ground it into this reality with our creations.
Use your crystals, meditate, dance, sing, tone, create, open your Christed portals, open your DNA, clear the land and grids, light this planet and the HUman heart grid up daily. If called to travel, or work on a specific area before the wave, heed that call.
Reflect the higher experience; what does it feel like, what do you do on the accelerated journey? Take a look and align your activities, emotions and thoughts with that reality.
Speak your Truth and be kind to all. It is a highly charged passage as this wave enters. Stand in your Mastery as the sovereign, humble, blessed being you are. Keep centered and clear of the lower entanglements; no judgment, no doubt, no fear.

There is a great amount of heart activation available. Excitement is in the air. The higher realms bless us, however the collective timeline choice must be made by those with aspects in form.

Triple Eclipse Portals: Triple eclipse portals of August 18 (lunar), September 1 at 2:01am PDT (Solar), and September 16 at 11:54am PDT (lunar) assist in bringing in these collective consciousness-shifting energies. Treat them as Gateway influxes; open your portals, open yourself to receive. Gaia consciously monitors and responds to your thoughts, creations and emotions. Show her what we desire, ask her (verbally – use your voice) to release the codes and frequencies to level up the Tribe and provide the accelerated experience.

September 9th – 11th; Initial Wave Entry: The Third wave begins to trickle in September 9th – 11th. Most of you can feel it building already, it is already affecting the SUN with its powerful frequencies. Solar plasma will be greatly affected, which affects Gaia’s magnetics, activating (very) ancient codes for the dimensional shift. This is a big push for the accelerated timeline of Ascension. It does not happen without our command, our intention, and our ability to take (immediate) action on creating the Shift.

September 22 Equinox: The Equinox lands on September 22 at 7:21amPDT. This is the Gateway opening for the new level of consciousness. Honor it properly, be outside on Gaia as much as possible. The SUN and Gaia will have a strong bond during this Gateway, and our intentions for balance, peace, harmony and Ascension will be greatly amplified.

September 26 -29: Our Third Wave of 2016. This is our strongest influx in decades. Be excited, let’s do it right! These photonic frequencies further accelerate the activity of Ascension and will continue to flow in for several weeks. You may have noticed the Light does not step down in between waves any longer. This is a good thing; we are able to maintain higher levels of light without integration periods as in the past. Each wave this year has raised the light level dramatically, and accelerated the Ascension. The purging, revelatory activity continues to build to compliment Source’s command for order, harmony and Ascension.

By the time this wave hits, we will have collectively chosen the acceleration opportunity. I feel we are capable of experiencing an acceleration without too much duress, or at least we are prepared to assist the collective properly. A heart-based expression, embodying the Christed state of peace, has tremendous power as this unfolds. Many are experiencing the neutralizing effect of the crystalline level of Divine Love. I AM confident the Light Tribe will flow through this passage with ease and grace.

In Love, Light and Service,
Sandra

Cosmic Citizenship

Preparing for Cosmic Citizenship

by Lisa Renee, Energetic Synthesis

June 12, 2016

Humanity is evolving into learning how to better function within group consciousness through many different social settings that present an array of personal challenges as a byproduct of the bifurcation and Ascension cycle. The higher frequencies and new chakra orb body configurations are thrusting us into a whole different energetic foundation, which pushes us to get the highest lessons of our evolving consciousness, that content that we are being forced to learn at this time. Before we can achieve personal sovereignty and join the Universal Consciousness Community, we must be developed in our ability to navigate in alignment with heart based group consciousness, in service to others. This requires us to learn how to live honestly, transparently, authentically, we cannot hide behind any masks of deception or still use manipulation forces to get what we desire, to take the upper hand over other people. If we use manipulation and force our personal will into the reality to serve the self, or to feel more comfortable, these energies feed the fears of the predator mind to grow. In order for us to become Cosmic Citizens, if we truly want to live God, Sovereign and Free, in the Law of One, we have to obey these laws and practice them right now in the physical world, so that when the GSF timeline opens, we have the full opportunity to join the rest of the Galactic Community, if we are not of criminal or predatorial minds.

In the Ascending future timeline, as a GSF Cosmic Citizen, all is seen as an energetic signature within the lightbody, there is absolutely nothing that is hidden. If there is an act of brutality, harm or criminality,  every last detail will be known and seen by others in the Cosmic Community, if they observe your consciousness, they will see everything inside your lightbody. If there is criminal activity in your consciousness record, if there is low ethics or disdain held for other people, the lightbody will not be strong enough, it will not be bright enough to hold the higher frequency needed, which means that consciousness cannot exist in that time and space, the higher Aurora Earth. Or on advanced planets that are in the alliance of the Interdimensional Free Worlds, that live totally and completely in alignment to the Law of One as the way of life.

Thus, many of us are purposefully thrust into difficult social situations that involve navigating group consciousness, such as in communities, organizations, memberships, professions, and a multitude of other types of group relationships. Many people on the ascension path are guided into some form of contributing directly to alternative social situations, such as practicing new guidelines of behavior like STO, or treating all people as mirror reflections of the higher collective selves, while participating in a spiritual or consciousness community. This is not only to learn and develop ourselves spiritually, but to explicitly gain self-knowledge in how to successfully navigate group dynamics by improving conflict resolution, and communication skillsets without being negatively triggered and acting our destructive behaviors. We have to learn how to get along with each other peacefully and harmoniously in a group setting, and many of us will be facing these kinds of different and difficult social challenges now.  As we face an array of social challenges, we will be measuring our energetic output and input as forms of available energy, in order to determine what activities expend too much energy, and when we need to conserve energy. Many of us realize that if we are in the presence of deception, it takes a huge amount of energy to keep working around the façade being shown, while the truth, even when its unpleasant and hard to face, actually increases the available energy into all social situations. If we want to restore energy to a place where deception has existed, we tell the truth as we know it as accurately as possible, because it is the only option to return the energy back to the areas where the energy had been depleted by that which was propped up by deceptions and lies.

This is directly related to the new skillset of the discernment between Entropic (draining energy)  and Negentropic ( increasing energy) systems that operate in group consciousness. We must bring conscious awareness to observe the behavior of systems of energy, and how that loss of energy is generated and further, study how we can increase energy in our lives, and in the lives of others by the systems of energy we create. This becomes even more important if we are involved in group consciousness, and if we will have access to power tools, because the health of the group consciousness will take precedence and priority over the desires of any individual to abuse power, or use power tools for selfish reasons. Much of the higher discernment we need to observe neutrally is in the systems of energy that we have created, and are ruled by the energies created by our own ethical conduct. When we measure our intentions and are self-aware of our own ethical conduct, we can ask ourselves to test out the situation to know if we are cycling in self-deception to serve our desires, or if we are operating selflessly from our deepest and highest truth, acting in alignment to our heart and empathy for service to others. These internal choices are made by our conscious participation and are what fuel the deeper motivation for what is created ( this is the blueprint), and this is what governs how we direct our own consciousness energies when we are creating something. In managing our energies, we must always return to the core intention of what was originally created, in order to see the real motivation and intent that originally started to fuel the energy in the entire creation. This is more complex when something is generated from a person in which many other people make a choice to collaborate with, as each person lends their collaboration and that energy will have a signature of either selfishness (divided competition)  or selflessness ( unified cooperation) in the group consciousness project. Going back to the original intent of project creation is called reverse engineering, if you want to really see what is behind anything or anyone, we must return to the original creation in the timeline and observe the seed of intent that was behind it all.  If the project or creation was founded on a basis of selfish motivations of divided competition, the intent of the collaboration is made with something that is inherently selfish, and this will always drain our spiritual energy. People can participate with anything based in selfish motivations, and if they cannot shift their motivation to cooperate with the group consciousness involved from a place of service, they will experience a severe drain of energy of their own making. To gain energy, we must align ourselves truly to be of service in unified cooperation, without expectation placed upon others, we will reap the gains of source energy that is returned to us a thousand fold, as a result of selflessness in our motivations.

To participate with the Ascension cycle, it requires our transformation away from serving the individualistic egocentric desires of divided competition. It also requires finding our place within the right alignment of the group consciousness, we have to find that which is authentic to our real and true self, without losing the core of our real self or draining our energy trying to maintain our individuality in the group. When we are not being our true self, we are drained of energy, this energy is used for putting up an egoic facade. While we are in the process of shedding our negative ego identity, we are in the process of finding the real inner self, the heart of being of service to others, and finding new ways to increase our energy so we can share and circulate that energy with others. This is how we learn to expand our ability to feel comfortable with ourselves, while we are participating or observing a variety of roles or archetypes that may reveal themselves while in group consciousness. Eventually, our goal is to become aware of the roles or archetypes that are played unconsciously or consciously, and to clear ourselves from the fear that makes us hide our real feelings behind the masks, that we show the public. Unconscious masks drain our energy and are created from; wounded ego, unresolved conflicts, ingrained fears of vulnerability and betrayals of misplaced trust in others.  Becoming authentic while in a group setting, requires us to shed our false identities and express ourselves transparently and authentically, without ever needing to defend who we are. This takes a lot of practice and feeling a lot of pain in order to finally get it right.

Whatever group you may be connected to at this time, this has a higher purpose for personal spiritual growth, completing karmic cycles and timelines, as well as learning how to maintain, conserve or increase personal energy sources. This experience in a group helps us to develop into greater spiritual maturity, to gain the direct knowledge and experience of unity in diversity, the unified cooperation that is inherently present within advanced levels of group consciousness. When we have self-realization of this fact, we start to experience the deep connection we have to others, which further increases our genuine feelings of empathy and compassion for all people and the world. When we are self-interested and egocentric, if we are emotionally wounded to the point that we refuse to see the truth and would rather live comfortably in a deception,  we shut down. We cease to have the ability to have genuine feelings of empathy or true compassion for others and empathy for the current human condition we all endure.

Evolving into group consciousness does not mean we become homogenized as a race into a hive mind of automated thinking. It means we give up our intrinsic selfishness and desires for divided competition, we learn how to be of service to the whole, by respecting and allowing others to be a reflection of our interconnectedness. Most people do not enjoy being treated badly by any person, so why do so many people feel its justified to treat others so badly? On the ascension path, we have to break this cycle of abuse and mistreatment of our fellow humans, as well as the creatures on this earth.

The planetary body is elevating its frequencies to potentially go beyond the closed source system of architecture that makes up the lower energies, the three layers of ego or individuated egoic programming. Whenever we are involved with a group consciousness, we will be facing challenging issues of conflict resolution between all of the parties involved that are collaborating, to the degree these three layers of ego are still in control of those present.

The negative ego program is a destroyer. It is important to understand how unresolved conflicts generated from negative ego programs are a form of mind control, and work as a closed system architecture, that drains energy from the organized purpose of the overall group consciousness. When there are hidden conflicts existing between members in a group, that make up the components of its human system of energy, these unresolved conflicts consume energy beyond that which is needed for the system to function well, and this increases entropy. This is why flushing out hidden conflicts and bringing them into transparency through honesty, in opening dialogues between the parties involved, is always the right answer. Transparency is an open source system concept, and a very important part of conflict resolution, and thus for maintaining the higher energetic functioning within any group consciousness or community.

Conversely, dark forces behave in closed source systems of architecture. By promoting fear they obfuscate and confuse the issue at hand in order to increase interpersonal conflict, escalate chaos, and spread disorder in a group, divide and conquer. The Imposter Spirits and the negative ego are extremely clever at twisting kernels of truth, in order to spread misinformation and hearsay to break apart the unity and order that is present within any kind of group consciousness.  Not only is this a divide and conquer technique to split up group consciousness, but it is how energy is diverted away from being effective, in serving the higher purpose of the groups functioning. When people are in continual states of chaos or confusion, and spread unverified forms of gossip or negativity, the energy is drained from those in the group who take the bait of negativity, and this has an overall impact to the people involved. If this energetic drain is not corrected through conflict resolution, and if transparency is not given to the situation, the group runs the risk over time, with the accumulation of multiple unresolved conflicts, to eventually break down and cease to exist.

Conflict resolution and facing conflicts with honest transparency, removes the energetic loss that conflict creates within human systems, such as in organized groups.

Sometimes, it is possible that deeply honest forms of compassionate communication used to resolve conflicts can actually assist the people involved in the group to gain energy and become even stronger in their purpose. When we show true empathy for others point of view, this can powerfully unite people with a common vision or goal. This is important to understand in any kind of interaction made between small or large groups of people, whether its family members, business colleagues, project management, or spiritual communities. However, sometimes holding loving communications with empathy is not enough to unify the conflicts harmoniously, and choices must be made to stop the energetic drain. Ultimately, this serves to better align the people involved in the conflict to move towards the structures that their consciousness is most vibrationally compatible with.

GSF Behaviors are provided as an emotional tool to help apply a model of higher ethical conduct when participating with the necessary lessons of evolving into group consciousness, by clearing out the destructive programs we inherited on the earth. We can replace the lower energetic motivations that are directed through divided competition, and purposely replace these motivations to help collaborate to create an advanced group consciousness to model unified cooperation. This hard clearing work is preparing us for entry into Cosmic Citizenship, and the choice to do so will always be left with the individual.
