Steve Beckow: As of Dec. 21, 2012, how many terrestrials would have ascended had ascension occurred then?
Archangel Michael: As you know, in our private channelings, we have indicated to you thirty percent. Think of it as a family decision, saying, slow down, because we all want to come. The plan has still need to go forward with great rapidity, by the way. But we will slow down because we want to accommodate everybody [who wants to ascend]. (1)
S: For the sake of listeners, let me say that that number had risen by May 2013 to around 50 percent. Sanat Kumara said:
Steve Beckow: How many people are now ready to ascend, if full restoration occurred today?
Raj [Sanat Kumara]: You have not made great progress, I am sorry to say. So you are still at about 50 percent. And you say, “Well, how can that be?” There has been a lot, a great deal, of back-and-forthing.
Now we do not see this — I can hear the collective sigh that is going out around the universe! — we do not see this in a negative light. And again, we are asking you, let go of that pass/fail, negative/positive way of looking at things. …
Think about it this way. There are people who, when they are going on a trip, they pack, they have everything ready and sitting at the door, or even in the trunk of the car, days beforehand. Now, that is basically your 50 percent.
Then there are those who pack the night before. And they dither. And they go back and forth and wonder what to wear, and wonder if they have forgotten something and go back into the house 12 times to double check. And that is where many, many of the human collective are “at” right now. (2)
S: Then the game changed, it seems. What was the game changer in the Ascension Plan?
AAM: Humanity made the collective decision [to ascend together], which strengthened our partnership. That is what the game changer was. (3)
S: What happened at that moment?
AAM: Humanity, in a very mature, expansive position has said, “We wish to have the opportunity, we wish to ascend as one community in the unity of heart, in the unity of purpose. Because that is why each and every one of us came.”
And that plea was heard and received by the Mother, and the plan given flexibility, altered somewhat to accommodate the full request, this prayer. (4)
S: What did that collective decision do to the timeline?
AAM: It created some delay, it opened the door for more — and to make a higher quantum leap, by the way, which is something that we’ve never discussed — and it truly marked a shift, a very significant shift in what we perceive and how we act in partnership with you. (5)
S: Could you expand a bit on how the collective decision was communicated to you or communicated to the Mother?
AAM: Yes, in very practical terms and in terms of your society you can almost think of it as a vote or a consensus. These are not conscious decisions. But we call it, not an unconscious or subconscious or conscious decision, but a soul decision.
So within the populace of Earth, of this magnificent Gaia whether they were aware or unaware – every soul has been aware of the Ascension process and the plan to go forward interdimensionally, multidimensionally and to bring the attended adjusted physical form along, and the impact that that would have on not only upon Gaia and amongst yourself, but throughout the omniverse.
As the time grew nearer, much, much progress was made —– and that was something perhaps we’ve not spoken enough about. We’ve talked during our many discussions, prior to December 2012 of the enormous progress the human collective, not just Light workers and Light holders, but the many very positive strides that were being made by humans.
Now that also entailed help shall we say, from this side of things – like containment, some moderate adjustment, the, beaming of love with increasing frequency from moment to moment from the heart of Mother/Father One, as well as your star brothers and sisters, different frequency, different rate of receiving. So much was done.
Now as you know, during our latter conversations, it was still felt that about 30 percent of the population was, shall we say, good to go. Then there was the gray area, and then there were those who were well behind the fence.
Very married to, very connected to, very reliant upon, very much in love with the illusions of the old Third Dimension.
Now there comes a window and you tended to think of that window – and I do not just mean you personally, I mean you collectively, you who were actively working on such things – as actually being open for well over a year. It then shrunk in November 11, 2012, December 12, 2012, December 21, 2012. But the window was actually quite broad and momentum was gained and being gained every day.
Now on our side, yes, we understand time, but we ask you to bear with us as I try to explain this in ways that will be comprehensible to the readers.
There is an instantaneous moment, and you can think of that moment as a moment within a very elongated process, but there is a moment of soul decision, when either the collective shift takes place – even though some were already through the portal and anchored, but many were not; most were not.
The collective of humanity, the soul-decision consensus, plea vote – however you wish to think of this – the plea went up to ask the Mother, not for a halt, nor even for a pause, that was not the plea.
The plea was, we came together as one family, to do this, to make this monumental change that not only changes each of us and our family and Gaia, but has effect so far beyond. We are aware and we choose to make this shift, but not all are completely ready, but we are asking, and it was a request, in that instantaneous moment: May we do it together? And the answer was yes.
The heart plea was the most earnest perhaps that we have ever witnessed from the collective. Now it wasn’t instantaneously put on hold or halted. The process is still very much underway – giving you, but we did not put a timer on it, but you – humanity, your soul collective, said that we want to do this – and we don’t want it (listen to what you are saying to us,) to take hundreds of years or decades.
Just (what is your expression) just give us a chance to get our ducks in a row. And that is exactly what you are doing, and might I say, that you are doing it with surprising rapidity.
So when we say or indicate to you that it was a collective decision – that is what we are saying. It has nothing to do with whether the collective had earned it, whether they were ready. You were ready the moment you incarnated and made the decision to return. So the readiness has always been there on the soul level.
So you say to me – well Michael, Lord, what happens if some of those beings are slower than others don’t hurry along. And what I am telling you is that not only we, because we have not stopped doing what we do, but you, each of you, in your own way, as builders and determiners of Nova Earth have stepped up your activity. You have moved it from a point in time to a completion. So you have moved it from a simple event to something you are creating and doing with us.
So you have entered into a much stronger form of partnership and you may see this – you see it in your energy fields, you see it in how you feel, you see it in what you are experiencing, you see it in your level of exhaustion, your ascension symptoms and in what is happening. And yes, I know, you will say to me – Lord: it is still not fast enough. And my brother, I could not agree more with you, but it is still happening.
Does this help?
S: Yes it does Lord. (6)
