Here is a wonderful ascension channeling from Ashtar that I copied from a spiritual mailing list that I AM on.

"What is the Ashtar Command ?"
from Ashtar :

"I am very happy to be here with you to share
information and the love that we can share together in
these momentous times. I would like to address some
information concerning the Ashtar Command; our
purpose, who we are, and what we are doing here
speaking to you in this strange manner.

You have been introduced to this Ascension idea, this
plan of ours. Let me say it is a plan of Sananda under
whose auspices we are working directly. I would like
to speak a little bit about my role and the role of
the Ashtar Command in fulfilling this. Perhaps it will
put your mind more at ease about extraterrestrial
ascended beings surrounding you. We are human in
appearance as you are. There are humans throughout the

The Ashtar Command is an intergalactic alliance of
etheric ships, human beings and angelic beings. We are
here on a mission and we have been for many thousands
of years. We have been monitoring and assisting in the
evolvement of the planet and the consciousness of the
human species. We have from time to time manifested
physically, but, largely, we work spiritually. There
may come a time, probably there will come a time, when
you will see our ships, but it is a little too early
for that yet. We are remaining in the 5th dimension.
So we are surrounding you with millions of ships and
many millions of volunteers, servants. and ascended
beings. You cannot see us unless we lower our
frequency to 3rd- dimensional time and space.
Nevertheless we are here and we are fully functioning.
In fact, at this time our efforts have been redoubled
and we have a great number of fleets surrounding the
planet doing much work.

Our work consists of many different areas. Largely, we
are assisting in the elevation of consciousness during
this period in which the planet is growing towards its
Ascension. We are assisting in evolvement. We are
delivering our trainings to you in your sleep. We are
delivering our telepathic messages to those of you who
can hear and receive them. We are opening
communication links each day. There are more and more
of you who are opening to the aspects of channeling
and telepathic communication with us. And when I say
us, I am referring to the Ashtar Command and all of
the As- cended Masters of the Great White Brotherhood.
We are working in unison you see. Each of us in our
different areas of specialty but as a coordinated
etfort. We are a very organized group of beings. We
take time for fun and play as you do. In fact we have
perfected it a little bit more than you have, for we
have a little more freedom, and yet at the same time
we are quite organized and impeccable in our
manifestations. At least we try to be. We learn too.

Ascension is involved with spiritual growth primarily
but there is also a certain high tech aspect to it.
This is where our etheric ships or merkabah vehicles
come into play.

We are here surrounding the planet and we are in touch
with all of you and we are awaiting your evacuation
and Ascension. This is the physical lifting back into
our ships where your Ascension process will be
completed. Those of you who are aware of and feel
comfortable with the extraterrestrial or Space
Brotherhood aspect of this Ascension will have an
experience of entering our ships upon the time of your
lifting. There are other beings who have not this
understanding and if they were to find themselves in
that situation would perhaps teel fear or
disorientation. They will be feeling the Ascension in
somewhat different ways but they will also be lifted
into the ships, though they may have the experience
that they are being accompanied by angels rather than
space beings. You see, there is very little difterence
or no difference.

So, the first wave is what we are focusing on at this
time as we said in our previous class. As Sananda said
concerning the first wave, it is to manifest as soon
as there are sufficient volunteers. For our part we
are ready on our end of things.

We are continuing to align the energy grids and to
focus the energy to assist in the growing presence of
God upon this planet and within this planet and within
each of you. We are doing work to assist in the
clearing of the emotional body of the earth, the
emotional aura which has contained much of negative
emotions and negative projections. This manifests
often as air pollution. We are working to clear this
somewhat. All of this work makes the path of Ascension
all that much easier, as there are then less layers of
density for you to go through.

Nevertheless, we are mainly waiting for more
volunteers who are interested in this first wave of
Ascension and who are willing to take the time and
energy to prepare themselves for this. Sananda has
already outlined the general ways you can prepare

I will say that at the time of your lifting regardless
of whether it is the first or subsequent liftings your
experience will be somewhat as He has outlined. You
will be taken to a ship. You will be lifted physically
as an etheric and physical being. You will be given an
opportunity to make choices concerning your next
manifestation. You could continue to work with planel
Earth as an Ascended Master or you could return to one
of the more spiritual realms from which you came. Some
of you have sources that are extremely different from
your current manifestations. Some of you are angelic
beings and others are of the Space Brotherhood. Some
are humans or other ascended beings. You will be
reconnected with your original presence, who you truly

So. given the information that you will receive at
that time you will make a choice as to whether you
desire to continue your work in this area. I recommend
this as the most profound spiritual leap you could
take ... to become an Ascended Master and to return.
There are many choices and the choice will be yours.
You will receive training if you wish to be an
Ascended Master and return to assist the remainder of
humanity in their Ascension process.

All must be lifted or leave this planet in some way in
the remaining years in order to make way for the
Earth's clearing. There will be much training offered
to you. You will be able to experience a great deal of
wonder at first until you reacclimate yourself. You
will be taken to one of the mother ships. There we
will have a great celebration. We are growing
impatient to be reunited with you as you are with us
You will find that it is likely some of you may have
surpassed us in your spiritual evolvement. So I would
recommend that you do not look at us as Gods who are
above you, who are to be worshipped, but, rather as
your brothers and sisters.

You will have the opportunity, if you choose, to
remain upon the ships. The ships you will be housed in
are quite large. There are, of course, shuttle craft.
There are platforms. There is one that is situated
over this home as this is one of the headquarters of
the Ashtar Command. We have a communications platform
etherically located above this dwelling. You will be
taken to the mother ships where you will be able to
experience rest and relaxation as some of you are
growing quite weary with 3rd-dimensional limitation.
It will be time for you to reacquaint yourself with
your spiritual powers and your "I AM" presence. You
will merge and become again ascended beings. You will
have to be retrained in aspect.s of creativity and
manifestatioll and with your powers and how to use

Aside from the work that we are doing with these
communications and messages in enhancing individ- ual
spiritual growth, we are working with the planet, and
we have been for some time, to assist the planet in
maintaining balance. We have up until recently been
working to deter activities along the fault lines.
This activity has ceased. It is time now to - allow
this to occur and it is occurring; earthquakes, etc.

We have been working with our technology to assist in
controlling somewhat the rotation of the earth.
controlling the wobble which will inevitably result in
a new polar shift. We have been doing much to focus
the light which is being broadcast from the Creator
Himself throughout the universe. Specifically we have
been working with energy grids. These are difficult to
describe. They appear somewhat like meridian lines
with various vortex points which surround your planet;
and we use these grids to assist in balancing and
controlling the rate and the nature of the spiritual
ray which is emanating to your world. This is, as I
have said, to assist in balancing, for your world is
existing in a state of precarious balance. At this
time we are doing everything we can, and have been for
quite some time, to allow you and all of humanity to
have the maximum time to develop spiritually and to be
prepared for the change and the Ascension which is
taking place on this world.

With regard to Ascension I would say that the Earth
herself is ascending. This is an unavoidable growth
which must occur and it will result in some Earth
changes. Most likely they will be quite dramatic. We
are working with individual Ascension especially
strongly at this time because the time is so critical.
We are attempting to reach as many beings as possible,
especially the starseed or volunteers, you who have
been among us in the past and will return to be with
us again. We are assisting all those on this planet
who are open to spiritual growth and awareness at this
time. All those who have love in their hearts are
feeling this emanation that we are assisting in and
are receiving subconscious messages from us.

It gives me great pleasure to be here with you. Some
of you are new to me, at least in this particular
format, though we have been watching and observing all
of you for some time. I must say you are branded
individuals. You are all glowing a little bit more
profoundly than most of your cohorts here on Earth. So
it is very difficult for you to escape our attentions.
Because you are glowing so much it makes it easier for
us to connect with you and to find you no matter where
you may try to hide, to share with you the love that
we have, and the gifts that we have awaiting you. It
is a time of great celebration on our part and I think
on your part. It is a matter of your assimilating this
information and especially assimilating this new
energy which is manifesting. As you do so you will
find your life becomes more and more of a celebration
and there is more joy and love within you and things
begin to look quite a bit more positive. You have been
surrounded by negative thoughts and emanations for
many lifetimes. We are deprogramming you in our way,
not by brainwashing you but by showering you with so
much love that you must melt. So if you have hardened
your hearts a little bit in an effort to protect
yourselves I understand this. It is part of your
growth process; but love will melt this ice. For what
we come to share is the same love that has been ex-
pressed by every master who has been here.

Sananda is our Supreme Commander. We work in
conjunction with the archangels, specifically
Archangel Michael. We are a broad spectrum alliance of
beings. We come from near and far in the universe and
from other universes. We come as volunteers and
servants and I will tell you why we come. It is
because we have experienced so much love we don't know
what to do with it. And we must share. So we come from
the far corners of the universe to areas which have
yet to attain the restructuring and reordering that
the Creator has ordained and we come in a timely
manner to assist. Now we will assist in your

You will have no more need to struggle on a survival
level. You will have what you desire instantaneously
manifested by your own desire. This all ascended
beings can do. In my opinion it is one of the
unfortunate circumstances of this Earth life or
3rd-dimensional life that all who are here are so
limited and enslaved by the need to earn a livelihood
to pay for food and lodging. All this takes so much
time and energy. You have a very difficult time and
very little energy left for even a minimum of
spiritual work and service. Some of you have this
somewhat beat but most of humanity is still struggling
for survival. So you will have to get used to having a
lot more freedom. I think you will enjoy this. You
will have to get u.sed to being connected consciously
and constantly with the Creator. You are working
towards this now. Some of you are making great strides
in your growth. Nevertheless, until your final
Ascension you will still have a remainder of limited
ego or density around you. So regardless of the state
that you attain. which can be quite expanded, there
will still be a transformation which takes place at
that last moment.

So, what is it like living on an etheric
5th-dimensional ship? It is quite pleasant and
aesthetic. Some of the ships are hundreds of miles in
diameter. There are cycles such as you experience here
of day and night ... simulated cycles. Sunlight is
processed in a way such as to still allow for a day
and night experience. There are natural settings. We
have forests, streams, lakes, and oceans full of
creatures. We do not have poison oak however. We have
selected wisely from among all species. You might say
it is a very Eden-like existence. It is similar to
what the Earth will become after the Earth changes
have occurred and the Earth has ascended to a
5th-dimensional entity. There will be a time when
those who are evacuated will be offered the
opportunity to return to Earth as ascended beings and
to recolonize the Earth. The Earth will be
dramatically improved by that point. And those beings
who inhabit the Earth will have the same Ascended
Master capabilities as those of us on other planes do
now. So there will be no need to have a "good credit
rating." You will all have unlimited credit with the
Creator. You will all use your credit wisely and
responsibly to create manifestations that are in
alignment with God's will. It will be automatic with
you at that point. So there is no fear of misusing
your powers. You will be purified to the extent that
you will have no more desire to abuse the privileges
that you will be receiving.

After some time spent aboard the ships you will have
completed your training. Then you will be returning,
those of you who decide to follow this course as
Ascended Masters, to Earth, to exist here and to walk
side by side with humans to create quite a ruckus with
your manifestations: your miracles, your ability to
materialize and dematerialize at will, your ability to
create out of etheric substance all that you require.
l think you have heard of the powers of Sananda when
he was here as Jesus. This is what I am referring to.
As it is written in the Scriptures it is our hope that
you will do what He did and more. This is available to
you. We are hoping with this brilliant plan, that with
enough returnees as Ascended Masters manifesting
[dramatically] throughout the globe, [to] create quite
a stir. It should inspire many others to find out what
is going on and to question this New Age that is
manifesting. There will be much teaching and you will
be trained. You will know how to protect yourselves
from any negativity. And you will know how to read
human beings, read their thoughts and feelings. You
will have full use of the mind. And as Sananda said,
you will be immortal and ever youthful. So, when you
return you will look a little bit younger and more
radiant but you will still look the same. You will
still be the same being though somewhat transformed.

So this is the work that we are doing in this class.
lt's to prepare you for all of this and to answer your
questions which will arise. We will be working more
and more experientially with you from this point
onwards to assist you in preparing, purifying and
healing yourselves. This is to open your hearts to
unconditional love for yourselves so that you can
fulfill the requirements necessary to partake of this
adventure. If you have been bored up until now with
your Earth life, and many of you have, having somewhat
of a remembrance of what it is like to be an ascended
being or Creator/God, now your time of boredom is
over. Now it is time to awaken and prepare yourselves.
Make your decisions concerning this Ascension process.
You will not avoid it but you may perhaps postpone it
a bit. But why postpone what is so blissful and so
liberating? It is your destiny.

Above and beyond all your worldly manifestations and
missions and services your Ascension is your prime
directive at this time. lt is your primary service. By
giving yourself to the Ascension process you will
realign your priorities somewhat and you will find it
much simpler knowing where to put your energy. You
will be more directed if you have not been until now.
You will be more inspired to meditate. You will have
more of a reason to meditate. You will feel a little
bit more of an imminence. You will feel more of a
presence around you if you will give yourself to this
process. lt is your choice. l am here as a recruiter.
l will not make you sign anything for you will sign in
your own hearts. But I tell you that the joy and the
love we have to offer and to share with you is far
beyond what you have yet experienced. You can have the
experience of day-to-day growth and closeness with the
Ascended Masters. You can have easy access and
communication with the Ashtar Command and the Ascended
Brotherhood. In fact this is part of our teaching and
part of our preparation. This contact is to open you
because it is very beneficial at this time."


Introduction to Ascension : predestined planetary and personal consciousness expansion, and to the Ashtar Command.
The idea of Ascension is that we, and our world, are on the brink of a marvelous expansion into a new dimension of reality - one in which we come to recognise our inner divinity and reclaim our place amongst those "unseen" beings of Light that surround us upon differing dimensions. These "ascended" beings are often referred to as "Ascended Masters" (or Guides), and it is from them that we receive information about this marvelous spiritual opportunity - our Ascension.

The Ashtar Command is a spiritual network of Lightbeings who differ from the Ascended Masters only in that we perceive them as beings of Light that are linked to other planetary star systems, and hence we may regard them as ETs. Their role is also to assist us on a personal, spiritual level.

Ascension proposes that at the dawn of time, humanity volunteered to occupy a new dimension and a new planet. This planet Earth would be a physical one and operate upon the concept of free will. The resulting world we have created has been studied by many beings from throughout Creation with interest and admiration. We were all originally Ascended beings, that is, beings who reside outside physical dimensions and who operate on a frequency of Light (Light may be defined as the physical expression of Unconditional Love. Our physical body comprises Light slowed down to form physicality.)

As ascended beings who populated a physical world, after a time, we forgot our original origins and cut ourselves off from our Lightbeing fold (who promised to help draw us out of our separation from the rest of Creation and God). We can say that we have been "awakened" when we respond to the idea of Ascension or any other type of spiritual thought that puts humanity into a greater context than our present reality. If we resonate to Ascension we come out of our "sleep", and desire to reunite with our friends on the higher dimensions from whence we did originally arrive. In this way, we say that Ascension is also about bringing us back into the fold of Light and awareness of God.

Mother Earth is destined to make her transition back into a higher dimension, and we of humanity as her caretaker have the opportunity to journey with her. This whole Ascension opportunity rests with us. Though many Lightbeings and the Ashtar Command are here to guide and assist us, all responsibility rests upon our own shoulders, as it should.

Many of us see Ascension as occuring in our lifetime, and thus feel a great urgency at this time. Our Ascended friends, however, have always declined to give a time-frame, preferring to defer to the wisdom of our Creator's divine blueprint. It will happen when it is meant to be so. Timing, however, does depend upon the amount of Light (love) that we consciously manifest upon our planet and within our own lives.

The Ashtar Command, under the guidance of the Ascended being Ashtar (pictured overleaf), is here with us at this time, surrounding our Earth with Ships of Light operating on a fifth dimensional vibration and higher. As such, they are largely unseen, but they do exist and wish it to be known that you are NOT alone in this cosmos, and that there are other children of God in existence, ones that you would call "alien". How marvelous to know that we have entities of Light willing to connect with us and welcome us home as divine beings. The time for humanity's great spiritual leap is here in the new millennium!

Use your own discernment as to if Ascension speaks truth to your heart. Each of us resonates to our own path and there are many paths to Light.
