What Ascension Will Be Like



August 2, 2011

This is a reading with Archangel Michael through Linda Dillon of the Council of Love. The highlights of it are: AAM gives the reason why the galactics backed off from disclosing on June 21; he discusses the 2012 end date, what Ascension will be like, the “day of darkness,” the fate of the Earth and those who don’t choose to ascend.

Thanks very much to Ellen who transcribed this reading.

Archangel Michael: Greetings, I am Michael.

Steve: Greetings, Lord. Thank you for coming.

AAM: Where else would I go?


Welcome, my brother of peace.

S: Thank you, Lord.

AAM: And my brother of love.

S: Thank you.

AAM: For so often, there are those on the human realm and on the planet of Earth that forget that these terms are interwoven and reflective, back and forth, that they are not separate. And so I bring you love this day as well as peace. And it is a sacred love, and it is a love that you and I, many, and all, participate and share in.

Do not become discouraged, my friend, with the human adventure. For, yes, there are many twists and turns, and even from our side it sometimes looks a little skewed. But understand, it is all in order. And it is in the enfoldment of One.

And it is in the enfoldment of the universal plan, the plan of the Mother/Father One, (1) and the restoration of love, the raising of vibration upon this wondrous planet. And so far beyond. Of course it is to be understood and anticipated that for so many, as they deal with the changes that are now rampant, their concern is about the Earth and about their journeys and about their — in some situations — survival, in the most basic of senses.

But this is not simply about the unfoldment of the human collective, those who have chosen to be in form on Earth at this time. Are they in the forefront? Yes. But it is so much bigger than that. Yes, I know, my beloved brother, that I am speaking to one who understands this, but nevertheless it bears repeating that the effect and the ripple of what takes place now, with the raising of frequency vibrations, with the opening of hearts and minds even, it travels far, not only throughout this universe, but many universes.

And there are so many who stand not only and watch in observation, but who assist, some in a very proactive way, and some in ways which are suitable. Yes, of course, I am speaking about your brothers and sisters of the stars. You have an expression on Earth, “chomping at the bit.” And I know that you are very anxious to discuss this. [chuckles] But so are they. So are they.

S: Um hummh. Am I correct, Lord, in thinking that you anticipate all my questions, that you know my questions before I ask them?

AAM: Well, let us say that we are very close.


And so we share telepathically and energetically, more than anything, a knowing of what is going on, a commonality of our hearts and minds. So yes, there is a knowing, but there is also the importance of the human factor. Because we want this to be an exchange, a conversation. I do not always simply wish for you to come and to hear what I have to say, because it is just as important in our closeness and in our love that you express the yearnings and the feelings of your heart.

S: All right.

AAM: So where shall we begin?

S: Well, I did obviously have some questions. Can you tell me what occurred around June 21st to have that not be a good date for disclosure?

AAM: Fear. Of course, let me elaborate.

Now, you know it is not the fear of the common man, of what you think of as the man in the street. For in many ways they would deal with this just fine. But there is an agreement and a pledge by the Intergalactic Council that they will not come in a situation that will create such fear that there is a trigger event.

It is the leaders of several countries, and in particular it is the United States of America, to some degree France, to some degree China, and even Israel, that have, upon discussion — let us put it that way — the leadership of what we felt and know to be the pivotal decision makers, the movers and shakers, the power brokers, or so they believe, have been in alignment, and certainly in communication with the councils, with the Star Brothers and Sisters.

What has happened as the time and the timing has grown closer is that they have been very heavily influenced by not only military concerns or input, but also economic. Of course it is true, and it is part of the unfoldment and this was very clearly understood, that what you think of as your economies, whether your Star Brothers or Sisters were present or not, are shifting because they are based in old paradigms that are of old dimensions and no longer serve. They are based on lower vibrations of greed, control, lust — you know the list.

S: Yes.

AAM: But when the economic advisers have truly begun to think about how this would shift the reality of not only what you think of as national economies but global economies, how the value of things, not only by necessity but even common sense, would shift, it gave them concern about losing or not being able to manage that shift in a way that maintained or maintains power bases.

Additionally to that, there has been military input about protection, control of the populace, control of those who would seek to usurp the energy or the situation politically of your Star Brothers and Sisters being present.

What they are not seeing, and what the visionaries, the core group had been quite clear on was the vision of the shift, was the opening of such potential. Yes, economies shift, but the gifts and the caretaking, in very practical ways, of your populaces are assured. Nevertheless, there has been a huge spike high in the — what we would call the fear quotient.

So there has been a backing away, but not off. Let me be very clear about that. And of course that is always why we are reticent about dates. But this was very clearly a time that was favorable and could have been favorable, despite everything. But we will not seek to over-ride or interfere with free will on any level.

Now, you say to me, but Lord, if you are saying that, then we can wait until the end of time. And I reassure you, my brother, that that is not so. Because even though we tell you of this situation, it does not halt the unfoldment, and it does not halt the shifts in energy that are already underway.

AAM: I want to give you a practical example. When you see a young boy, and he’s on the diving board for the first time, he may be very nervous, and there may be several false starts, and he may back up a few times, and he may even take a running jump and then stop. But what happens is eventually there is a dive. Sometimes it is perfect, sometimes it is rather clumsy. But it takes place. Because the child will not stand on the diving board until the water freezes over. Well, we are not waiting for the water to freeze over, either.

S: You understand that on the basis of disclosure having been postponed so many times, really, that some people are saying that December 21st, 2012 is not a significant date and that what is said to be planned for that date won’t happen until — some say 2013, some are saying 2015, some 2030. Others are saying that disclosure itself won’t happen until 2015, 2030, etc. Is there validity to the date December 21, 2012 … or not?

AAM: Yes, there is. Now, we don’t like to play the date game. But this has been — think of it as a line in the sand. Think of it as the first crust of ice that forms on the water. You have to jump at some point. Everybody who is in this frame of mind is having a great deal of fun with the dates, are they not?

S: I think so, yes. And even an upset can be fun.

AAM: Yes, that is true. You see it all the time, in your sports and political sports. But those who are suggesting that this will not happen, say, ’til 2015 or 2030, they are hedging their bets. So if nothing transpires, they can still go forward. What is essential here — and we do not in any way ever wish to sound, be, and certainly not act, judgemental; but let us speak to this, dear heart, because it is important — it speaks to a lack of faith and trust, not only in us, for that is not the issue. It is speaking to a lack of trust and faith also in their sacred selves, in the unfoldment that they are witnessing every hour within their being, and within the beings of their neighbors, their friends. Yes, we know, it looks and smells and tastes like chaos, and that is the good news. Because everything is boiling on the surface of the water. It is not buried deep within. So for those who wish or feel that they are guided at a future date, that is all right. Give them the compassion. Reassure them that it is all right, but it is also all right to trust that the Universe may shift in a millisecond.

It does not take forever, although it has seemed as if it has. We are not in the habit or in the business of setting up false expectations. It is contrary to universal law, and it is contrary to love. If anything, my beloved friend — and we keep telling you this — you are ahead of schedule. But do we want you to be wedded to a date? No. Do we say that the dates that have been given are accurate and significant? Yes. If you were paralyzed, and let us suggest that in many ways the collective has been paralyzed, if you were paralyzed, and you were praying and praying and doing your sacred practice, and meditating for healing, and you were given the date of December 2012, would you be upset, dear friend, if it arrived in September? I think not.

So look to your dates, but at the same time we are asking deeply of you, keep an open mind to early arrival.

S: So, so the shift that we’re expecting could happen before December 21, 2012?

AAM: That is correct.

S: And is it going to be a shift that happens in a moment, or is it going to be a gradual shift?

AAM: It is already underway.

S: Yes?

AAM: But as you know it has been for some time.

But there is a moment, there is a moment when the door opens. So it is a — has been and is a gradual awakening. You have seen the changes mentally, physically, emotionally; interconnectedness; the shift in the collective. But there is that moment when it clicks. So it is a moment. Actually, it is a period of about 20 to 24, 26 hours.

S: What are you describing, lord, a moment? Is it an opening of a portal or a change in vibration, or…? What — is it possible to put into words?

AAM: It is a change in the entire collective vibration within which Earth, Gaia and everything upon it comes together. In which Earth, and everything upon it, comes together. It comes together — In a different vibration. So it is not like going through a portal.

S: Not. Okay.

AAM: So you have gone through many portals, and that has been part of what you think of as these mini-shifts that you have been undergoing.

S: Right.

AAM: And some people have gone through them very eagerly. Certainly the planet has gone through them. Many of the elemental kingdoms have done their work as well. But there is a moment, what we think of as a moment, which for you feels more like a day or so. There is a moment when it is harmonized all together.

S: And on one side we’re in 3D or 4D, and on the other side we’re in 5D?

Or higher.

S: Or higher. And I’ll be coming back to that later, about Starseeds. But people, I think, are hungering for some description of really what –

AAM: Yes, one of the things that we hear very often is, do I have a body? Is there an experience of physicality? Does the Earth disappear? Do my friends disappear? Does my dog disappear?


It is most likely the dog will remain.


S: The dog will have a good time of it!

And there’s questions like, are there three days of darkness, and…. People are wanting to know what the shift entails. Do I get up physically and move to another location? Do I — does the Earth disappear behind me in 3D and the Earth open up in 5D? They don’t know what to expect.

AAM: No, you don’t. Think of it as blinking. Have you ever blinked and the room seems brighter all of a sudden? This happens all the time in your meditation. It is like a blink. The Earth has already done most of her transition.

And a great deal of the Earth changes that you witness are actually helping the collective souls, the humans, to adjust as well. So it is more like a blink. You may have the experience of physicality — for that is part of the joy of being on this Earth — if you want to. It is a shift in potential of how you operate and how everything…. So it is as if all at once there is a cleanup crew. And what is swept away, what is swept away, my beloved one, is the remnants of the fear, of the hatred, of the darkness.

In that moment, what we are calling a moment, there is a choice. Do you want — and it can happen instantaneously, because so many of you have laid the foundation — do you want to be in the heart of one of love? Do you wish to be in the higher frequency? In the very last second, all they need to say is yes, and allow themselves to be flooded by what you can think of as a tidal wave of energy that will sweep the planet. That is why we say all are invited.

Now, if they choose not, that is all right. It is sad. But they do not need, there is no requirement for them to continue to exist in a different frequency of the planet. But let us be clear, and this is where fear arises amongst people, they cannot stay. So there will be those who choose to leave.

S: What will happen to this Earth, 3D Earth, that they cannot stay? Is that what you meant, Lord?

AAM: Yes, that is what I mean. Understand, 3D Earth, it is not existing.

S: Any longer, after that moment?

AAM: [Describing 5D:] You can have the experience of being in 3D. Of — think of it as living somewhere and projecting and having an on-stage experience. So you can have the 3D experience, but the 3D experience is not including all the old paradigms, the duality.

S: What is it including?

AAM: It is including a physical reality of love, the physical embodiment of joy, of the incredible experience of diversity, of interconnectedness, of love, of community. It is the restoration of what was always intended.

S: Now, it sounds like you’re talking about the 5D Earth.

AAM: That is correct.

S: What about — for the people who say no? Will they remain on this 3D Earth, or will they find themselves somewhere else?

AAM: They will find themselves elsewhere.

S: And will they find themselves elsewhere as babies, or as they are now?

AAM: They will return home. They will return out of body.

S: To the astral planes?

AAM: Yes. And they will be counseled and then reassigned as they choose.

S: And there will be no one on this Earth? Or will this Earth exist?

AAM: Oh, no, it will exist [in 5D]. It will exist. Because it is still the possibility of having the experience of demonstrating in physicality.

S: All right. Will it exist as it exists now, or will it be a burned-out shell?

AAM: No, it will exist as it exists now [but in 5D] in her divine perfection. Just as you will exist as you do, if you wish to have this form, although you may do some alterations on it.


S: I can think of a few!

AAM: Many will do alterations, my friend.

S: I’ll be happy to do alterations.

AAM: And that is the difference. It is the ability to create and co-create with love. It is actively using the creation energy to bring forward what you are wishing to experience.

S: All right. Let me just see if I understand things now. The people who say yes will go to 5D, the people who say no will go to the astral plane. Will there be any life left on Earth [meaning in 3D]?

AAM: Yes [meaning in 5D].

S: And who would that be or what would that be?

AAM: It would be those who are in the fifth dimension, wishing to have that awareness, but also inhabit and have a physical experience.

S: Oh, maybe I don’t understand you. Are we not having a physical experience in 5D?

AAM: Yes. And that is on Earth.

S: Oh, now I’m a little confused. I’m talking about two different things. One is 3D Earth, one is 5D Earth. The 5D –

AAM: The 3D Earth has done her cosmetic change. It is not there.

S: It is not there.

AAM: The same way you, dear heart — as the embodiment of a singularly third-dimensional being — are no longer present. [Because I'll be in 5D and not in 3D.] At that moment, you both, and all jumped.

S: All right. So is there anything left in 3D?

AAM: No, it is all transmuted, transformed, elevated.

S: Ahhh. Okay.

AAM: I’m sorry. I have not been clear with you.

S: So there is no 3D Earth after that date?

AAM: That is correct.

S: Oh, I didn’t understand that.

AAM: She does not want to duplicate herself and to continue to be the carrier of that energy.

S: Ah-huh. Unlike, say, Venus? (2)

AAM: Yes, there has been a division there, but that is not how Earth is choosing to do this.

S: I’ll be darned. I haven’t heard that before, and I’m just trying to digest it. There won’t be a 3D Earth. The people who say no will go to the astral planes, the people who say yes will continue on with Earth.

AAM: That is correct.

S: That is very much an eye opener for me. Thank you.

AAM: You are all going together. It is a package deal, my friend.

S: Yes, indeed. [Laughs] I see that now. Will there be three days of darkness, or is that just completely mistaken?

AAM: There will be a period of darkness. It is very unlikely that it would be what you think of as three days. It is more likely to be a period of about, oh, 20 hours, a cycle of what you would think of as a day.

S: And what will we be doing in that 20 hours?

AAM: Well, some of it you will be sleeping. Some of it you will simply be — and we guide you strongly — still. Be in your heart. Be in peace. Be with us. Be with those you love and cherish. But do not panic.

S: Right. Okay. Well, that is very helpful. I think for the first time I begin to appreciate what’s going to be happening at that time. Well, okay, so, let me ask you a few more questions. Divine deadlines — that comes from a statement that SaLuSa made in which he said that there are deadlines which have been divinely determined.

I don’t understand the concept of divine deadlines, though, because previously I thought that once a divine deadline had been reached the galactics would take over the ranch and do what they wanted. But I think we’ve passed the divine deadline for disclosure, have we not? And yet that didn’t happen.

AAM: Yes, you are correct. And one of the things is that it is a language issue as well, because when you use that term “deadlines” it does imply that line in the sand. And we want to emphasize this is a very unique undertaking, to say the least.

And many of — mmm — we don’t have so much rules as what you would think of as protocol. A very human word, is it not? Anyway. We are working with the human collective as never before. And the deadlines have happened. And we have taken a collective breath and said, all right. But there is some margin here. And we will give it to them.

One of the things that you will have noticed, my beloved friend, is the intensity of what is flooding your planet and every human being, even those who are not aware, at this time. Everyone is feeling this, since there are many who are in what we would call a feeding frenzy. They are chasing their tails. They are feeling the intensity of the frequencies that are being given to them to break through, because, yes, there will be that moment, but also the more the collective has come together, the firmer the foundation, the sweeter, the smoother it all is. So we are giving extensions that have not normally been available.

S: Okay. So then it might be more accurate to say that the initiative has passed to the galactics and the spirit hierarchy after the divine deadline, but they then use prudence and –

AAM: Discretion.

S: — discretion in what they do next. Is that correct?

AAM: That is correct. The Company of Heaven, and far beyond. We want to help, so we are giving, allowing, some extra flexibility. But from our side, everything is in place. Everything is a go. I am the archangel of peace. I am the warrior of peace, as are you. It is our desire that this be as peaceful and as loving as the outcome is.

S: Okay, that’s very clear. I’m just going to ask you a very quick question. I think it came as a bit of a shock to many people that they might have to give up their — well, including myself — that they might have to give up some pleasures and pastimes. Some people worry that they may not be able to ascend if they don’t give up things like smoking, marijuana — those were the two main ones that came up. I said to them that I thought that it was more a case of it being a rocky ride rather than not achieving ascension. Could you comment on that whole question, please?

AAM: You are absolutely correct. What they are doing, and what they are facing, is their own ego fears. What they are doing is they are facing their own issues of self love and self worth. So what they are thinking is that, “If I don’t do X, then I will not be allowed to participate in love.” That is not the case.

Now, as we have tried to emphasize with you today, there is that moment of decision. But it is, like you say, if you have prepared the way, not only upon the planet but within your sacred self, if your vessel is clear, this is about the clarity of heart. So it is not the issue of this substance or that substance. The issue is: Is partaking of the substance an act of love for your sacred self, or is it simply helping you to mask the self loathing that you feel?

Now, that is a question each being has need to take to their heart, not feeling that we judge in any way, ever. But if they were to turn to us and to ask for clarity, to ask for assistance, that is what this period of discretion and flexibility is about. We want to help.

So, do they have to give up what they love. No. But is it love? Is it an honoring of the sacred nature of who they are? That is the question we pose.

S: Thank you. That’s very clear. I notice I missed a question, and I’ll quickly go back to it. I’ve said to my readers that my hunch is that most Starseeds are already ascended. And I’ve added to that, why would Starseeds be asked to come to Earth if they’re not ascended? It seems like that would be part of the problem rather than part of the solution, if it were the case. Am I correct in my hunch?

AAM: Yes. Starseeds are here to help.

S: I see. And they’re already ascended, mostly. They’ve already been through this?

AAM: That is correct. And that is why the shifting inter-dimensionally is becoming so profound and clearer and clearer. So sometimes they do not know, and it is confusing for them, whether they have their feet in the third or the fifth, the seventh or the ninth. But it does not matter, they are here to help.

S: Okay. And what determines when — the time at which the blindfolds come off?

AAM: It is a combination, but 90 percent of the factor is the individual.

S: And in what respect, Lord? The individual –

AAM: The individual deciding –


– that they have had enough.

S: I’ve had enough! [Laughs.]

AAM: And your blindfold is as thin as gauze.

S: [Laughing] Uh-hunh!

AAM: You underestimate yourself. What you call hunches are visions, my friend.

S: Well, that’s good to know. I certainly do feel more confident with what I’m saying.

AAM: It is coming from a place of understanding and knowing. Now, the next step, my dear brother, is to accept it.

S: That’s wonderful. Well, I very much appreciate what you’ve told me today. It’s just so helpful. And it will help all those out there who have had those questions in their minds.

AAM: Dear heart. I am with you always. Go with my love. And go with my blessing.

S: Thank you.

AAM: Farewell.

S: Thank you, Lord.
