Fear Freezes, It Misdirects, and It Confuses by John Smallman

Thank you Saul and John!

John Smallman
John Smallmam

Here in the spiritual realms – the numerous levels or areas beyond your illusory 3D environment – we are very busy preparing for your awakening and adding the finishing touches to the great celebration that has been prepared to welcome you Home.
And yes of course celebrations have often been talked about in reference to humanity’s awakening, so your interest now is undoubtedly in the actualization of those celebrations, in fact: When? We try to suggest time lines bearing in mind that time is of the illusion, but time is what you experience and the seemingly endless waiting is very stressful, tiring, and disappointing for you.
The awakening will happen soon, and in reality it has already happened, because you never went to sleep for more than the briefest instant, but it still seems to you, caught up in the apparent reality of the illusion, that you have been kept interminably waiting for this wondrous event. And we work hard to help you keep your spirits up while you wait by encouraging you to focus on its inevitability and its imminence.
Deep within you, and for the most part barely accessible to you, you do know that awakening is imminent and inevitable but, as you struggle with daily life and the hope and intense desire to awaken, that waiting can be exhausting, debilitating, and extremely frustrating. That is why it is so extremely important to visit your inner and sacred sanctuary daily, and remain there until you feel a sense of relief, a strengthening of your faith, the warmth of our love for you, and even a sense of amusement as you consider that when you have awakened, and the illusion is gone, you will be absolutely overflowing with delight and merriment.
To remain focused on the inevitability of humanity’s awakening is essential, do not be distracted by the depressing bad news events on which the media and indeed the general populace place almost their entire attention. As you go within, feel the Love, feel the intense inner knowing that the divine plan is unfolding just as divinely intended, and remind yourselves that the Will of God, the Will of the One, your will is always achieved.
We know how difficult it is for you to detach from the unreality of the illusion because your physical bodies are anchored there, and you are apparently anchored and constrained within them, experiencing all the physical sensations on which they depend for feedback so that they can remain strong and healthy.
It is indeed confusing and unsettling for you, and even more so when you suffer illness or injury and the further restrictions those conditions impose on you. For you it is an enormous paradox, an incomprehensible state of affairs, over which it seems that you have almost no control, especially as part of the experience of being embodied is to learn to control the body and have it behave as you desire. We do understand, and we are deluging you with spiritual assistance in every moment. To which you no doubt feel like replying: “Well how about some physical assistance that we can feel and enjoy?”
And you of course then answer that question immediately by reminding yourselves that you do feel assisted when you go quietly within and allow the distractions that plague you to fade away for a moment or two. We are constantly with you, supporting and encouraging you, and we will never leave you on your own, even for an instant, because it is our lovingly assigned duty and a great honor to be with you while you work so diligently to bring humanity back to wakefulness.
You have all adopted the intent to awaken, you did it before you incarnated to experience this lifetime, and although you often forget your spiritual purpose as you go about the daily business of just being human, the intent remains firmly established within you. It is an intent that will not be overridden. The fact that you forget you made it, feel that you are not competent for the task you have undertaken, and doubt your ability to actualize it cannot in any way interfere with the divinely guaranteed outcome. All will awaken!
Think of all those you know and love in this lifetime, remind yourselves how dear they are to you, bask in the feelings of warmth those thoughts of them bring to you. When you do this the flow of divine Love through you, as a channel or conduit to humanity and to Gaia, strengthens and intensifies. This was the vision that you embraced prior to incarnating, You, an unobstructed gateway into the illusion, through whom Love flows continuously, like a vast snow melt, as frozen hearts soften, dissolve, mix, and integrate into that wondrous all pervasive Tsunami of Love, the One, of which you are all essential aspects.
You are bringing humanity to wakefulness. It is apparent everywhere when you open your eyes to see, instead of allowing yourselves be numbed into a state of severe depression and hopelessness by the outpourings of doom and gloom with which the mainstream media attempt to force feed you daily. Prove it to yourselves by going on-line and just searching out some good news to counteract the depressive effects of the media’s never ending flow of misery that they would have you believe is the overall state of affairs planet-wide.
Yes, there is misery in many places, all of which can be remedied, and to be aware that this is so and to send Love to those who are suffering is a major part of your work on Earth. BUT the good, the inspiring, and the uplifting happenings far outweigh, by an order of magnitude, what those who pull the strings on the world stage and in the mainstream media wish to direct and focus your attention on in order to keep you in fear. Fear freezes, it misdirects, and it confuses. Just look at some of the political discussions and arguments that are reported by the media. They frequently do not address the real issues, just the symptoms, which are then dealt with at length and with little if any wisdom.
Love is your nature, humanity’s nature, and It will always be your nature. Its apparent lack in the illusion is only apparent. You see It flowing freely in areas where natural disasters occur, even if only fleetingly in the immediate aftermath. Then fear is allowed back in as shortage of the necessities of life encourages people to fight for them. But truly there are no real shortages, Gaia provides amply and abundantly for all on the planet. Shortages are constructed to enable the “authorities” to regain control.
You have all seen this happen. And yet there are millions of kind and generous souls spending their lives far from home and loved ones to relieve these unreal shortages and support those in need. They experience severe frustrations with the inadequacies of the systems, meant to assist them, that prevent them from doing their jobs properly. The will to good is there, as is the Love to support it and ensure that it is achieved. You see this happening after floods, earthquakes, and volcanic eruptions as neighbor helps neighbor and even the military cooperate. Then very quickly the “authorities” take control and the freely flowing kindness, compassion, and cooperation cease as agencies argue with one another over who is in charge.
When Love flows no one is in charge, there is no need because all can see what needs to be done and each does what is required and what her competence enables her to do, and a synergistic and cooperative flow ensues in which all are most effectively engaged. Love is always the answer, whatever the situation, the problem, or the issue that needs to be attended to. So continue to be loving, to extend love to all with whom you relate or with whom you interact, AND to those who appear to be causing the problems and the suffering that plagues the world, and by doing so awaken humanity. That is why you incarnated, and I assure you that you are totally capable of achieving what you set out to do.
With so very much love, Saul.

2 ARTICLES: What Lies Behind the Mistreatment and Subjugation of Women? AND Toward a World That Works for Women by Steve Beckow

Thank you Steve and all your Guides!

Women 22What lies behind the mistreatment and subjugation of women? What makes one person prone or likely to want to mistreat and subjugate another?
Most readers of this blog have been clearing two of those factors for perhaps three years now: vasanas and false belief systems.
A vasana is an archaic reaction pattern rooted in earlier traumatic incidents or episodes. Mistreatment often, not always, begets mistreatment. If we’ve been mistreated as a child, there seems to be a higher chance that we’ll mistreat others as an adult.
A false belief system may or may not arise from vasanas. Some belief systems are inherited from or conditioned by our society, our religion, etc.
They include the belief that we’re not able to resist our baser impulses, that one person can seduce another, that people have a set role in life which can’t be questioned or escaped from, etc.
While we seem to be able to sink deeper and deeper into a condition in which we don’t generate or feel love, we never appear to reach a place where we don’t value being loved or value the experience of love itself, when it penetrates us or our defenses against it, though it may be a rarer experience for these people than for others.
In this loveless state or condition, we’re like a parched desert in which a little rain instantly disappears. It’ll take more than a sudden downpour to convert a desert into a watered plain.
When we sink into that condition, usually all we can feel are (1) the physically-generated pleasurable sensations of the body like taste, warmth, satiation, etc.; and (2) situationally-generated feelings like happiness, arrogance, anger, etc.Rape 55
If one’s consciousness is burdened by false beliefs and vasanas, one may seek one’s own pleasure without caring about the cost to another, even in extreme cases to the extent of raping or killing another.
The way out of the situation we face as a planet will probably need a multi-pronged approach.
The rising vibrations of love on the planet will likely help in two ways: (1) they’ll raise the quotient of love that people are feeling and (2) they’ll bring to the surface the vasanas and false belief systems that reside within a person, for clearing.
There’ll need to be a change to the laws and a cleansing of all levels of the justice system so that criminals and persecutors are not allowed to get away with their acts, judges don’t commit the innocent to incarceration (which anyone who studies the human-rights literature would see happens more often than we may think), and prison guards don’t rape and in other ways mistreat those in their custody.
There will need to be extensive education, up to the time of the completion of the consciousness shift underway, to change the way that people who commit crimes and persecute others think and their perception of what’s permissible and what’s not.
And there’ll also need to be a range of treatment programs that actually assist people to emerge from their vasanas and false belief systems. Many treatment programs at present don’t work, which has often been depicted in movies, but we keep running them as if they do or will.
We’ll need to actually arrive at some approaches to treatment that actually address the real problems and do work if we’re to be successful here.
And there’ll need to be a wholesale transformation of social thinking and a rise in social compassion if society as a whole is to develop the will to emerge from the conditions that support or enable subjugation and mistreatment.
That’s a tall order, but many things will help us. The presence here of significant forces on the planet dedicated to lifting us out of our deep, Third-Dimensional malaise is one.  This blog is all about who those forces are.
The prospect that the funds will soon be here, from the New Economy (the Global Currency Reset and eventually NESARA), to pay for the programs that may be needed to end subjugation and mistreatment and assist others to emerge from the conditions which make the old way of doing things possible.
The consciousness shift will eventually see the disappearance of the emotional and psychological climate which underpinned subjugation and mistreatment, if only through the inability of those who commit these acts to follow us into the higher dimensions.
We lightworkers, nevertheless, have come to lead in this campaign to end these misery-producing conditions on the planet. Sooner or later, and I hope it’s sooner, we’ll take up the challenges of this work and do what needs to be done to create, administer and improve all aspects of the multi-pronged approach needed to get the job done.
What can we do now? Well, I know that there’s a limit to the amount of research and writing I can do. The lightworkers who are aware of what’s happening on the planet at this time are in a unique position to contribute a line of research and writing on these subjects that those unaware will probably not be able to do.
Lightworkers can also contribute financially to existing organizations engaged in the work of bringing in equality and compassionate treatment of all.
And lightworkers can carry on the educational and organizational work that will see a new way of doing things become possible and actual. Many lightworkers are already situated in the work world in a place from which they may be able to make a difference in this field.
Working together, we can create a world that works for women as well as men, for the young as well as the adult, and for families as well as the individual.
The rising vibrations, the help we’re receiving, the New Economy, the clearing that we’ve all done and the new and clearer eyes we have to see what must be done in the future combine to make equality and compassionate treatment of everyone an idea whose time has come.

Toward a World That Works for Women 

Gender Equality 22Given the concern of readers expressed via “Contact Us” over gender crimes, persecution and inequality on the planet, and given our expressed intention to end these unworkable conditions by January 1, 2015, (1) I’d like to review some of the circumstances that exist for women today from a human-rights perspective.
I respect the intention of some readers to concentrate on Ascension and not focus on unworkability. For those readers in that position, I request that you not read this post. Please be responsible for your participation or non-participation. The job will get done no matter what.
Nothing is as powerful as an idea whose time has come. (2)
This list is meant simply as a a starting point for discussion and is by no means exhaustive. Not by any stretch of the imagination.
Setting the deadline that I did was done in the expectation that the Reval would occur much earlier in the year that it has. Once the Reval occurs, work in this area will begin in earnest.
Nevertheless I believe it best to keep to that deadline and retarget if necessary rather than amend the deadline now and throw off the coordination of work in the area. Deadlines are necessary to coordinate work underway.
It doesn’t work to say that we’ll end an unworkable condition “one day, some day.” It does work to set a deadline, to make coordination of efforts possible.
With that as preamble, I’d like to discuss the ways in which women are suppressed and subordinated in the world, which at this moment contains more unworkability than would allow for peace, aliveness, satisfaction and full self-expression.
Words in italics are mine.
Human RightsBangladeshi women 647
Rights (such as freedom from unlawful imprisonment, torture, and execution) regarded as belonging fundamentally to all persons.
Boy Preference
Among the complex social and cultural reasons … for son preference, no doubt the most compelling is the economically crippling system of dowry. Dowry stems from the early concept of stri dana in which gifts –usually jewelry, including often a quarter pound of gold–was given to the bride by her family, in order to secure some personal wealth for her when she married. This jewelry remained her personal property throughout the marriage, providing some security in case of her husband’s death or other calamity. (3)
Forced Abortion
A forced abortion may occur when the perpetrator causes abortion by force, threat or coercion, or by taking advantage of woman’s incapability to give her consent. This may also include the instances when the conduct was neither justified by medical or hospital treatment. (4)
The one-child policy has been blamed for upholding the traditional bias for male offspring, especially in rural areas, and triggering a surge in selective abortion, child trafficking and killing of female infants. (5)
Female Foeticide
Destruction or abortion of a female fetus in the uterus out of boy preference.
Female Infanticide
Female infanticide is the intentional killing of baby girls due to the preference for male babies and from the low value associated with the birth of females.” (6)
Infanticide usually takes the form of exposure.
Female Genital Mutilation
FGM refers to several types of deeply-rooted traditional cutting operations performed on women and girls. Often part of fertility or coming-of-age rituals, FGM is sometimes justified as a way to ensure chastity and genital ‘purity.’ (7)
Child BridesArranged, Forced and Child Marriages
The practice of early marriage is prevalent throughout the world, especially in Africa and South Asia. This is a form of sexual violence, since young girls are often forced into the marriage and into sexual relations, which jeopardizes their health, raises their risk of exposure to HIV/AIDS and limits their chance of attending school.  (8)
Child marriage, defined as a formal marriage or informal union before age 18, is a reality for both boys and girls, although girls are disproportionately the most affected. (9)
Forced marriage is a marriage in which one or both of the parties is married without his or her consent or against his or her will. A forced marriage differs from an arranged marriage, in which both parties consent to the assistance of their parents or a third party (such as a matchmaker) in identifying a spouse, although the difference between the two may be indistinct. (10)
Forced Sterilization
Compulsory sterilization, also known as forced sterilization, programs are government policies which attempt to force people to undergo surgical sterilization. In the first half of the 20th century, several such programs were instituted in countries around the world, usually as part of eugenics programs intended to prevent the reproduction and multiplication of members of the population considered to be carriers of defective genetic traits. (11)
In China, forced sterilization is resorted to to maintain a “one-child policy.”
Bride kidnapping, also known as marriage by abduction or marriage by capture, is a practice in which a man abducts the woman he wishes to marry. (12)
Holiday Wives
Holiday wives are brides, usually in India, who marry foreigners, often after knowing them only a short time, on the expectation they will be sent for. They seldom are.
Acid attack
Acid Attacks
Acid throwing, also called an acid attack, a vitriol attack or vitriolage, is a form of violent assault defined as the act of throwing acid or a similarly corrosive substance onto the body of another “with the intention to disfigure, maim, torture, or kill.” Perpetrators of these attacks throw acid at their victims, usually at their faces, burning them, and damaging skin tissue, often exposing and sometimes dissolving the bones. …
The long term consequences of these attacks may include blindness, as well as permanent scarring of the face and body, along with far-reaching social, psychological, and economic difficulties. (13)
Acid attacks are usually committed by rejected suitors.
Rape is a type of sexual assault usually involving sexual intercourse or other forms of sexual penetration initiated against one or more individuals without the consent of those individuals. The act may be carried out by physical force, coercion, abuse of authority or against a person who is incapable of valid consent, such as one who is unconscious, incapacitated, or below the legal age of consent. The term rape is sometimes used interchangeably with the term sexual assault. (14)
Forms of rape include date rape, custodial rape, mass rape, and rape as a weapon of war.
Sex Slavery
Sexual slavery is the slavery of unwilling people for sexual exploitation. (15)
Honor Killings
bride burning
Bride Burning
‘Honor killing’ is an ancient practice in which men kill female relatives in the name of family ‘honor’ for forced or suspected sexual activity outside marriage, even when they have been victims of rape. Reports indicate that offenders are often under 18 and that in their communities they are sometimes treated as heroes. (16)
Bride Burnings/Dowry Deaths
Dowry murder is a brutal practice involving a woman being killed by her husband or in-laws because her family is unable to meet their demands for her dowry — a payment made to a woman’s in-laws upon her engagement or marriage as a gift to her new family. It is not uncommon for dowries to exceed a family’s annual income.
While cultures throughout the world have dowries or analogous payments, dowry murder occurs predominantly in South Asia. (17)
In many instances, the wife is killed because her family will not meet repeated and increasing demands for more dowry. Dowry deaths are often masked as kitchen fires.
Stoning for Adultery
A form of capital punishment in which the criminal is pelted with stones until dead.
While women are stoned for adultery in some countries, men usually are not.
Girls can be executed for simply talking to boys:
“A 16-year-old Turkish girl was buried alive by relatives as a punishment for talking to boys, the Hurriyet newspaper reported on Thursday.
“Police discovered the body of the girl, identified only as M.M., in a sitting position with her hands tied, in a two-meter-deep hole dug under a chicken pen outside her house in Kahta in the southeastern province of Adiyaman, the Turkish daily reported on its website.
“The body was found in December, around 40 days after M.M. went missing. Police have arrested and charged the girl’s father and grandfather over the murder. The father reportedly said in his testimony that the family was unhappy his daughter had male friends. Her mother was also arrested but later released.”  (18)
Refugee law is not consistent or uniform in the world. The worst case of rape I heard, as a refugee adjudicator with the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada, was that of a Russian woman who was used as a sexual plaything by the Chechen mafia.End Violence 3049
She was refused admittance to other western countries because what happened to her was viewed as a crime rather than persecution.
However Canadian refugee law contains “Gender Guidelines,” which state that a crime perpetrated against a person because of fixed traits such as gender is persecution and the woman was permitted to stay in Canada. It amazes me that our view of persecution can itself be gender-insensitive.

Realization of the Absolute Futility of Conflict of Any Sort is Dawning on Humanity by John Smallman

Thank you Christ and John!

Jesus postingHere in the spiritual realms excitement, as you might put it, is approaching fever pitch! Yet all across the world, and particularly in the area of Palestine and Israel, it would seem that people are experiencing hell on Earth.
There is an enormous amount of unnecessary and totally unjustified pain and suffering as anger intensifies and conflicts rage, but be aware that this is the essential raising into humanity’s conscious awareness of the futility of these ways of behaving, relating, and attempting to resolve differences between peoples.
For eons conflict has totally failed to resolve disagreements, let alone establish peaceful co-existence between warring factions. Finally humanity is getting the message, but it has taken this recent escalation of conflict across the globe to really bring this message home.
Consequently enormous numbers of good and loving people are working together to persuade those filled with hate and resentment to take a break from conflict and to meet with one another, initially to end the hostile activities that are tearing families and societies apart, and then to work together to establish a loving acceptance of each others right to live in peace.
It does seem to you that people have been futilely attempting this for generations, which they have, but now there is such an intensity of Love bringing peoples together that the angry reactionary excitement of those you might describe as “hotheads” will be calmed down in order that their often intense rage ceases to fuel the fires of dissent that it seems can never be extinguished.
It is a time for acceptance, for accepting that enormous numbers of people have been killed, tortured, and injured, and that nothing can alter that fact, and for also accepting that to continue burning with rage, just as before, will bring not solutions but only more utterly unnecessary and horrific suffering.
Up until very recent times it had been considered logical by humanity generally that the way to win a conflict was to increase the size of their armies and the effectiveness of their weapons. However the nuclear ending to the second world war made it clear that this was becoming an increasingly dangerous and indeed insane attitude to maintain or encourage.
Humans are social beings who chose to limit their access to their individual spiritual natures, and as a result they divided into different races, creeds, and cultures, further separating themselves from their oneness with their divine Source.
However, deep within every human being, hidden under a dark and divisive cloak of fear there burns an inextinguishable flame of Love. As a consequence of the escalating violence across the planet over the last few decades, and the realization that the threat of a worldwide nuclear holocaust has not yet been totally removed, many, in desperation or perhaps frustration, are lifting that dark cloak within themselves and finding their true nature beneath it waiting to embrace them.
And this is why, here in the spiritual realms, we are so excited, uplifted, and encouraged, because we can see the absolutely amazing and elevating effects that the Tsunami of Love is causing and promoting very rapidly across the planet and throughout humanity.
Realization of the absolute futility of conflict of any sort is dawning on humanity, and many are now getting together to gently and lovingly restrain those who, as yet, cannot see this and would continue engaging in senseless, wasteful, and in fact insane conflict.
So what we are seeing is that the futility of conflict has finally been truly recognized by the vast majority, consequently it will cease. From your perspective, reliant on the mainstream media for much of your inadequate information about the state of the world, the situation seems increasingly alarming. That is not a bad thing because it strongly encourages people to take notice and focus ever more intently on being loving in every moment.
It is humanity’s total embrace of Love, All That Exists, the Power Source and creative Intent of God, that will stabilize the New Age allowing it to grow and prosper as divinely intended. When Love is locked out, avoided, or denied, chaos ensues and the illusion is a state of chaos.
Love is One. Separation, the illusory state in which you appear to have your existence as humans, is chaotic because your ability to communicate is severely restricted by the limitations a human vehicle imposes on the divine being who chooses to experience life from that perspective. Your free will choice to separate from your Source and from all the infinite skills and abilities that state provides meant that only chaos resulted.
It was initially very exciting for you, you had brought limited skills to the illusion – the rules of the game – but they were quickly found to be inadequate, and then its chaos overwhelmed you. Your different languages, cultures, religions, skin colors, and apparent differing levels of intelligence further divided you, and meaningful communication, which had initially been difficult, became virtually impossible.
Over the last few hundred years or so there have been ongoing attempts to improve humanity’s living conditions, although those who had inherited power and influence strongly resisted alterations to the status quo. Nevertheless, it marked a turning of the tide, and then the nuclear devastation at the end of World War II brought the realization that either you had to find a better way to live together in peace and harmony on the planet or you were doomed to destroy yourselves.
This has not happened, and it will not!
However it remains essential that you all embrace the eternal and inextinguishable flame of Love buried deep within each one of you – and daily meditation within your quiet inner sanctuary is the way to do that – because that is the way to return to the state of oneness that is your eternal nature. As One it is impossible that you would do anything that would harm another. It is as One that you have your eternal existence, and in that state communication is instant, clear, comprehensible, and utterly loving.
Remember, your awakening has been divinely assured, so focus on bringing it to fruition by intending to be loving regardless of any situation that might suggest to you that Love does not work. It does, and that is why you are moving forward so positively and determinedly to your inevitable awakening.
Your loving brother, Jesus.
