ASHTAR: 144,000

The Ashtar Command have predicted that those who ascend in the first wave will be given the opportunity to return to the Earth in the ascended state, to awaken the rest of humanity to the ascension opportunity. The Keys of Enoch support this prediction by speaking of the sudden appearance of 144,000 Ascended Masters on the Earth, who will transform the world and push back the clouds of darkness and despair. The appearance of 144,000 masters is also predicted in the Native American prophecies. In April 1983, the Medicine Teacher, Harley Swiftdeer declared that, “144,000 Sun Dance enlightened teachers will totally awaken in their dream mindbodies. They will begin to meet in their own feathered serpent or winged serpent wheels(Merkabah) and become a major force of light to help the rest of humanity to dance their dream awake.” This would also provide an explanation for the 144,000, spoken of in the Book of Revelation.Chapter 7, of Revelations, refers to an uncountable number from everynation clad in what John perceived to be white robes. This could have been his perception of the light bodies adorning the multitude, who follow in the wake of the 144,000, to rise in the second and third waves of ascension. John also said that these were the ones who had been cleansed by the time of great distress, a seven year period of great tribulation. This would correspond to the natural disasters that have been predicted as necessary in order for the Earth to cleanse herself of industrial civilisation and pollution prior to her own ascension.

Preparing for ascension

Ascension is the goal of all the self-transformation processing that humans beings undertake in physical life on Earth. It corresponds to the final resurrection from death which is an integral part of the belief structure of a number of World religions. Ascension would appear to be available to anyone who acknowledges and respects the Creator – who can be known only as love and life – and surrenders to this, which is their own innate reality.The suggested way to prepare for ascension is the practice ‘inner quiet’ for which the stilling of the mind by focussing on the breath, is strongly recommended. Sananda has outlined that either ascension, or physical evacuation, will occur for all innocents, children, and adults, of the right disposition, who will allow it to happen to them. He stressed that people do not have to be religious in order to ascend, but rather they need to be trusting, loving and fearless.

Sananda on Ascension
From the book the Crystal Stair by Eric KleinINTRODUCTION TO ASCENSION by Sananda

Hello. Nice to be here with you this evening on this auspicious occasion. I am Sananda here to introduce you to a great adventure in your lives. I might say to re-introduce you to something you have known on some level of yourselves for a very long time. So please make yourselves comfortable and be relaxed. We will be introducing you to the ascension process this evening. The first class is always the most challenging for us. There is so much to discuss that it is difficult to know where to begin. But with your help in the form of questions, we generally end up taking care of most of the information you need to know regarding the ascension and these times that you are living in.

These times are quite extraordinary What is occurring now has not occurred on this world before. It is a transformation. There is an incredible amount of growth available. The opportunity to take a quantum leap into higher consciousness is now here for you. You may have a certain awareness of this in your lives. You may be in your own ways experiencing a quickening of growth, a heart opening, more light and love in your life, more desire to know the truth. This is a result of this increased energy that is occurring. What I am here to talk about, as well as the others who will speak to you in this series of classes, is the completion, or goal, of all of this transformation. You are not here on this planet to endlessly grow and process your emotions. This is part of a larger picture. This is just part of a growth towards a completion. And now at this time, through a special dispensation of the Father/Creator of the universe and all the universes, we are putting out the call to those beings such as yourselves, those Light Workers and Starseeds, who will be the first to learn about this opportunity to return to their true states of awareness, their true identities. This will culminate in the ascension process.

What is ascension? It is a great leap of experience on every level of your being. In general, you could say it is a leap from third-dimensional reality into a fifth-dimensional or higher state of consciousness, third-dimensional reality being what you now see and hear and taste and experience with your senses, all that appears to be solid or having this dimensionality of solidness. I would like to include in this definition (though they are more fourth-dimensional manifestations: thoughts and ideas, emotions, etc.) all of that which is existing in this planetary realm. You might say that the fifth dimension or higher, the ascended state, is a state of increased frequency of vibration. It is as if you have a prism and you shine white light through the prism, breaking it into many various colors, various wavelengths of light. You could say that the third-dimensional existence as you know it relates to that visible spectrum of light that you can see with your eyes, from the violet through the other colors. Ascension is a matter of going beyond this limited spectrum of experience. The nature of the universe does not change so much. The laws of physics do not change so much. But you expand and increase your frequency of vibration and your consciousness to a point where you can see those colors and move into those realms that are now invisible to you. So part of the process is an awakening to your potentials, your hidden potentials. They have been hidden quite well, have they not? You have been using a certain percentage of your grey matter. Some of you are more aware through meditations and psychic powers, but nevertheless you have been existing within a certain limited framework of consciousness. So another difference between an ascended being and yourselves is that we have a one hundred percent mental capacity fully operating in our consciousness. And you have much less. I would say you use only ten to fifteen percent. Maybe I will give some of you the benefit of the doubt and say that you have used up to twenty percent. Congratulations. But you see, there is a great deal more for youto be aware of, a great deal more for you to experience. And it is very enjoyable to do so. It is very blissful and peaceful to be surrounded by this loving presence of the Father continually to feel at one with the Creator. So an ascended being is one who has made that leap, who has at least attained to the level of awareness of the fifth dimension, who has gone beyond birth and death, who has attained that state of immortality wherein consciousness will no longer be broken by the sleep you know as death. Neither is there aging. You have seen pictures of Ascended Masters and they look the same pretty much all the time. If you have seen photographs of me (there are a few in existence), I have not changed much in 2,000 years or for even longer than that. So again, an aspect of ascension is that you will be free of birth and death. You will be free of all of the limitations of third-dimensional reality.

This transformation is not something that is intended to be selective for a very few individuals. It is something which is now occurring on a planetary scale. It is something that is going to be available to all human beings in this lifetime, in a very short time. You are hearing about it. You are in the first wave of those who have heard about it, of those who are interested. So this is not something that is an option. For you, only the timing is optional. This is not a new automobile I am selling you that you can decide whether to purchase or not. I am telling you something that isgoing to occur and is going to happen one way or the other. And it is for you to align yourselves and to open to the transformation if you wish to be among the first to take that leap of consciousness.

So why are you the first? Why are there so few who are ready to hear about this at this time? Why are you so different, you might ask. Why are your hearts a little bit more open? Why are your minds a little bit more open tothis possibility? It is because you have somewhat higher origins. Those of you who are in this room with me now are what I would classify as LightWorkers or Starseeds. You are, believe it or not, very evolved beings. You are very beautiful and courageous beings. You are among those who chose to leave the ascended state, to come here, to take third-dimensional incarnations many thousands of years ago in order that you might assist humanity in order that you might assist in the transformation of this planet. It is time for you to realize your origins to some extent, and to begin to appreciate yourselves for who you are beyond your minds and your personalities, beyond your limited concepts of yourselves. This is why you are among the first to hear of this. This is why you are awake to the possibility Many have heard these descriptions of the ascension and for some reason they do not awaken to that. For some reason they are somewhat sleepy or disbelieving. Their time will come. Now it is your time. So part of what we will be working on together in this series of classes, for those of you who choose to continue onwards, is the unveiling of your own higher Selves, the increased awareness of who you really are beyond your personalities and individual life experiences. You will begin to experience an expansion of your self concept. You will begin to feel a great deal more of your true presence, your higher Self, as we do our best to connect you more strongly with that aspect of yourself We are going to work on integrating you with that higher Self so that you do not feel separate from God or from your true self, so that you do not feel disempowered or helpless or lost here in this third-dimensional quagmire you call “planet Earth experience.” There are many benefits to this process. Indeed, it is aprocess. So I congratulate you for your openness this evening, for having the courage and openness to come and hear about this. I encourage you to ask whatever questions you have about this. This is not an ordinary class that you are taking. This is not a workshop that will assist you in manifesting more money exclusively. This is a class that is cutting straight to the very essence of your beings. It is very transformational.

So what is occurring now that is different? Why is this time more powerful and intense? It is because the Earth itself is undergoing the initial phases of its transformation to the ascended state. The Earth as a third-dimensional manifestation has a, very short time to continue. There will be incredible transformations of this planet and this solar system that you are inhabiting. All of the atoms and molecules of the Earth, of the solar system, and of every being in existence on the Earth are transforming towards a higher frequency and will soon be in the fifth dimension experience. This is why this is not an optional experience for you. If you are inhabiting the planet Earth, know that you are here at this time for a purpose, You are Light Workers and you have been awaiting this time. A great deal has happened to you in your Earth lives, a lot of water under the bridge, a lot of lifetimes where you were trying our best to be ordinary citizens. Sometimes you were persecuted for being extraordinary citizens, Sometimes you were great teachers. Sometimes you were yogis and meditators in your caves. Sometimes you were white witches or my other sort of manifestation, trying your best to do your missions here, to channel the energy of God into the desert like consciousness of the world. You have done a lot. You have been rather successful individually. Yet collectively I would say the change that is intended for this planet has not been proceeding as smoothly or as rapidly as we had hoped when this choice was made by you to incarnate here. So the original plan requires a little bit of a boost at this time. What has happened is that most of the Starseeds have fallen asleep themselves. This is why the world is so sleepy and why even the Starseeds are sleepy Because there is an aura of sleep and confusion which surrounds the planet. The light has not broken through fully yet. But it is making great strides to do so.

So I ask you to open to the possibility of your higher Selves, your own divinity and open to the possibility that you are ascended beings who descended at a certain time in history to do the work that you have been doing. And now it is time; your internal alarm clock has gone off and awakened you. You heard the word “ascension,” or perhaps read some information about it, and your internal alarm clock went off. Something in you said, “This is for me.” It is because you are programmed to awaken. You are programmed for this time, for you knew that no matter what occurred in your third-dimensional lifetimes you would not be left behind when the Hierarchy came to elevate the consciousness and to lift and transform.So now it is time, and you are receiving your wake up calls. You are waking up quite beautifully. There is more to do and experience. You willexperience it. I will speak a little bit about the ascension process. Next week Ashtar will be here to speak in more detail within his area ofexpertise. You see, there is a great deal of involvement by the Ashtar Command and the extraterrestrial masters. There are many ships surrounding the Earth. They are not visible to you because they are in higher dimensions. They are not visible to your earthly radar. They are not visible to the space shuttles. But let me say the skies are swarming with ascended beings at this time who have been assisting with this work. So what is the process? You have grown accustomed to reincarnational experience – that is, having your soul incarnate into a body and going through a lifetime of a certain number of years, experiencing death, and leaving your body to return again to the Earth. You have gone to some fourth-dimensional areas. There are heavens and hells galore, with many experiences. Yet always you return to the body for this body is the platform from which your launch will take place into the fifth dimension.This is the intention, let me say of having a physical body at this time especially I would say that your ascension will be all but identical to my own. You will not leave your bodies behind and go to a high state of consciousness. Your bodies will be transformed also. The molecules and atoms, your sub-atomic particles, all that you are, will be transformed and accelerated into the fifth dimension. So you do not have to die. Well,that’s some good news. Despite the fact that human beings have grown so accustomed to dying that it has become a common awareness or common belief, I am telling you now: you do not have to die. And you will not.

The actual experience of ascension involves the lifting of your vibrational frequencies, which culminates in the physical lifting of your body in ahigh state of consciousness from the planet’s surface into the waiting light vehicles. And yes, when I attained my ascension, I was lifted into the light vehicles also. You could say that I went up into the spaceships, if you prefer to view them as spaceships. So your experience will be the same as mine, although your requirements will be somewhat less than mine were. Fortunately you do not have to go through the trials and tests that I did. What I went through was for all of you and all of humanity You could say that I paved the way for this process. And I have been waiting for you for a long time. So I am very excited to see thefruition of all the work we have been doing here for thousands of years. For thousands of years the Ashtar Command and ascended brotherhood have been working. For thousands of years we have been waiting for this time. And we are very happy and excited that our wait is all but over and that we will be reunited with those of our family I am speaking of you now and that we will have the opportunity to do some very vital work with the mass of humanity also. So you will be lifted. You may call it evacuation or youmay call it ascension. These terms are related, but the evacuation refers to the lifting of your physical forms. The ascension refers to the experience of making the shift into the fifth dimension and beyond. This occurs shortly after the lifting. It is one process with two phases, you might say. So this is available to you. We are making this available. It is above all available due to the love of the Father for his creation and forall of the innocent beings who are here, who have been here in this world,whose hearts are calling out for more love, truth and light, who have been influenced by darkness and confusion. So my recommendations to you, if you are interested in this process, and this is sounding and feeling like truth to you – prepare yourselves. Open your hearts and investigate this.Take this course. We will work with you on many levels. We will work with you intellectually and do our best to explain within the limitations of speech the information about the ascension. We will also work with you in your hearts, in your chakras, in your awakening, opening, balancing; in preparing you. If it is your desire to be among the first, we will do this.

The current plan calls for, and I might say that it is quite a brilliant plan in my opinion, three waves of ascension. The goal of course, asdifficult as it may sound, is to have every human being on this planet experience the ascension in this lifetime. It is doubtful this will occur. We are going to do our best to harvest as many as we can who are ready Therefore, we will have three waves of ascension. The first two waves being, for the most part, the returning of the Starseeds to their true states, the reascending of you who are originally ascended beings who have come here. It is our hope that many of those Light Workers who will awaken will avail themselves of the opportunity to be lifted in the first or second waves of ascension. The first wave is imminent. It is our hopethat it will occur very soon. The sooner the better, in my opinion. Those who ascend within the first wave will be given the opportunity to return to Earth as Ascended Masters, to walk among humanity teaching and performing “miracles,” sharing this incredible message, and assisting in the transformation of human beings. This is ultimately the purpose that you came here for It is time for you to open to the possibility that you can complete your Earth missions and do this work from a higher perspective quite a bit more effectively than you have been, being as you have been enmeshed in third-dimensional life and its limitations.

So upon the ascension of the first wave there is an opportunity for choice. Many choices will be given to you. You can choose to return as an Ascended Master in a light body, having a body that is immortal, having the ability to matierialize and de-materialize at will, to zip back and forth between the ships and the planet, to perform miracles, to create spontaneously out of the etheric substance, to heal, to do many wonderful things. In short, this is to attract a lot of attention. You haven’t been attracting very much attention, have you? In all of your work, all of your mediations and your sharing has done some good. But for the most part it has only assisted in gathering the Starseeds back together again. It has not had a great deal of effect on humanity as a whole. It is a bit more profound of an effect we are hoping to have, as you return as Ascended Masters and create quite a ruckus and a stir. Being in the ascended state you will not be affected by negativity, doubt, fear, money, these sort of limitations. You will be able to be as radical and outrageous as you truly are and as you were before you took on the veils. The veils will be lifted from you. This is one choice. This is the choice that we are hoping many will accept. It is not mandatory to do so. If you as a Starseed choose to ascend in the first wave and to do some other service in another area with the Ashtar Command, or to return to your origins, this will he perfectly acceptable. As ascended beings you are always doing some form of service simply by being and showering your presence wherever you are. You have come from very many different places, different levels of consciousness, differeat angelic realms, different states, and you will have the opportunity to return to your soul families and points of origin. If you have not felt comfortable and entirely at home on Earth there is a very good reason for this. And it is good and it is a blessing that you have not. For it has kept you a little bit more awake and a hit more hopeful of something more. So here is the something more. It is coming your way on a silver platter with all of our light and all of our love.

I think I will speak about the Great White Brotherhood and the hierarchy of beings that are working at this time. You have heard of the Great White Brotherhood, perhaps. It is a service organization of beings who have ascended. You may have heard of the Ashtar Command or the extraterrestrial Ascended Masters, as you might call them. There is little difference between them. The Great White Brotherhood tends to he made up of many beings who have had Earth incarnations, but not exclusively But those who are working most closely with you have generally had some Earth experience and have committed themselves to this particular sphere of activity the Earth, this beautiful planet which is in need of so much assistance. So there is an organizational structure, you might say to the work that we are doing. There is a chaln of command proceeding from the Father/Creator through all of the angelic hosts and creator-gods, spirits, beings. Within this Earth sphere of activity I am the supreme commander over all of the Ashtar Command and its activities, and over the Ascended Masters of the Great White Brotherhood. This is my service. You might say that I am acoordinator of love. There is also a great deal of activity by the angelic hosts at this time. Archangel Michael and his legions are here for the protection and the transformation, and for the dispatching of those dark forces which have taken control of the Earth.

So you see there is a great deal about to occur. It has been occurring, but it is going to become much more physical and much more evident. As the Earth undergoes its transformation into the fifth dimension there will be much more of cataclysmic experience. The shaking and quaking and volcanic activities of the Earth will occur. Many of the transformations have begun; much flooding has occurred as you know and earthquakes, etc. This will continue and it will increase in intensity It is part of the process of the Earth’s transformation. It is inevitable. It must occur One of the by-products of this is that human beings will be shaken into another state of awareness. They will begin to question their lives and will begin to be a bit more open. Many of them will. Many of them will resort to a state of fear and panic. We are here to “save” as many as we can from the death experience and complete the cycle of this planet. It is a very incredible experience to be a part of. So tonight I am inviting each of you to take part in this, to take part in a big way not as an innocent bystander but as an active participant, to return to your masterhood, to return to your God-nature, to take back the powers you have given away by being third-dimensionalized, to reawaken the other eighty-five percent of your brain, to accelerate your atoms, to ascend and to return to that full consciousness you have longed for many lifetimes.

I will speak about the requirements for this. Yes, we have requirements. I use the word rather facetiously for compared to the requirements for those who have already ascended before this time, they are really rather easy requirements. First of all it is necessary to have some understanding of God, or some experience of God, to have an open heart towards that aspect of your higher Self. It does not matter so much how you philosophize orview this or label it, but to have an awareness of your Creator your higher Self. You need to have an openness within your heart, to have an open heart and as best you can to love yourself unconditionally for this is where it begins, and then to love unconditionally all that you see, all that you meet. In fact, to be a love radiator. Many of you are so beautiful it is redundant for me to speak of this. But nevertheless it is a requirement. It is not necessary for you to understand scientifically all that will occur in the ascension process. In fact, I do not think that anyone in this room could grasp it without a great deal of education. But there is some information you can study if you wish to understand intellectually how this occurs. I will recommend The Keys of Enoch book as a more scientific treatise on the Earth transformations, the ascension process and the role of the Hierarchy and extraterrestrial masters. However it is not necessary for you to understand any more than the limited explanation I have already given you. It is more of an awareness, more of an expression of love inyour heart, an openness to the process, and above all a desire, a longing to return, a longing to know your true completion and to complete your spiritual growth here on Earth. That’s it. You see, it is not very difficult, is it? In fact, when the first wave of ascension occurs, if you are giving yourself to this process and desiring the ascension, you can have the experience of ascension even in your sleep. You do not need to become a great saint or yogi. If you are not meditating now, I would encourage you to begin. If you are, I would encourage you to continue and to focus a little bit more on this. It is not necessary for any of you to attain perfect self-mastery I don’t think that it is going to be possible within the time that is left, anyway. Know that you are already saints. Maybe that will make it easier for you. Know that you are returning to who you truly are, rather than developing a new aspect of yourselves. Truly you are going to see the veils removed around your own hearts and consciousness. I guarantee it. It will occur very soon in your lifetimes. We will take a great stnde forward in our classes. Hopefully we can share this information and enough of the experience that you will go through any doubts or confusions. Of course your doubts will arise. You would not be human if you heard this information and did not have some skepticism about it. I encourage you to ask your questions. Know that there is part of you, your rational mind or your skeptical natures, which may never believe in this.We will be giving you a great deal of information and experience regarding the validity of this, though there will always be a part of you which has alittle guawing doubt that it will ever be occurring or that it is even possible. Know that you do not need to banish this part of your consciousness in order to have this experience. This is the part of you which will experience it when it happens. And then you will know. Above all, love yourselves. Read the Eagle’s Wings material, as this is very beneficial.

So let me open the floor to questions at this time. Please feel free to be yourselves and ask me whatever you desire to ask. This does not mean I can answer all of your questions. Within this framework of communication there are certain limitations, but I will do the best that I can.

“I don’t have an understanding of what a Starseed or a Light Worker is, nor do I know how to find out whether I might be one or not.”

I will tell you. You are one. There are many manifestations of Light Workers and many experiences. There are many Starseeds, or Light Workers as I call them, who are completely unaware of anything relating to spirituality or meditation or ascension. You might say they are in a state of varying degrees of sleep. This is not a criticism of them as individuals. It is merely a statement of the power and density that exists on planet Earth. The veils are very thick here. If you are not clear whether you are a Starseed or Light Worker it is not an indication that you are not one, nor is it an indication that you are not going to have the opportunity to be an ascended being. You will have that opportunity One ofthe aspects of unconditional love that is a requirement for this path is that we stop criticizing ourselves. We all carry within us ways of criticizing or judging our behaviors and levels of success. It is time for you to all love yourselves unconditionally as well as you can, regardless of how well you are performing against your ideal goals and expected ways of being. So for you as an individual I would say if you can do some meditation and continue to come to these classes, we will work with you. If you continue through this course you will have quite an experience of awakening, quite an experience of your higher Self much more than you have yet experienced. This is our intent and this is our promise to you. There is some exploration that needs to be done. It is the wisest course of action for any of you who are not quite certain about this, not quite sure of the truth of this. It is wise for you to continue to pursue this, to ask your questions and to make a full and thorough investigation. If what I am saying is true you have a lot to gain by doing this. And what I am saying is true.
