One By One


There is a misconception in some parts of the spiritual community that the planet will ascend en masse.  That some sort of Event will trigger a mass awakening.  That’s not the way this process works.  It’s done one soul at a time, one human at a time.  One by one.

This Event is explained as a planetary-scale, massive amount of Light and Love coming to Earth. It supposedly will hit us all at once, and will trigger a shock to the system.   It will be powerful and disconcerting, and everyone, no matter what level of consciousness, will begin to question their reality.

Supposedly, each human will then experience sudden unconditional love, and bliss.  And be reminded of home, and of who they are.

And those who are more awakened will experience an exponential opening of their master skills and abilities.

With all due respect to this perspective, it’s important to point out a few things.  If this were to occur, it goes against the whole idea of free will.  It implies that all humans are ready for enlightenment, or even if they are not, it is saying that it’s appropriate to impose an agenda on humans, regardless of where they are in their own soul growth.

You see, as souls, we don’t judge our experiences in this third dimensional playground.  As the humans, we tend to see our experiences on a scale of good to bad.  But our soul just sees them as a way to garner wisdom,

The concept of blasting the humans on the planet with light before they are ready to receive that light is akin to trying to convert someone to a religion they have no interest in.

Giving energies to those who have not worked out their issues never ends well.

We have heard horror stories about people who won a lottery of millions of dollars to end up broke and even more mentally distraught than before they came into a financial fortune.

That’s because when someone is blasted with lots of energy, and that energy can take the form of money, power, status, and, even light, it’s like putting a magnifying glass upon their issues. Those issues will just get magnified.

If the recipient was feeling lackful, and self-loathing, the money or position, or status, or light will create even more lack, more self-loathing, more self-destruction.  That is the way energy works in the universe.

All you need to do is look at our political leaders and their administrations and even those in powerful positions in our religious institutions to see that horror story being played out.  We see it played out as corruption, sexual abuse, cruelty, dictators’ assasination of citizens for personal gain.

Give more energy to corruption and it yields more of the same.

Light is already coming to this planet. And, yes, everyone on the planet is definitely feeling the light.  And it’s already causing disruption in their lives, even though they don’t recognize it as light.  And because of it, they are already doubling down on their defense mechanisms out of fear.  Imagine them being blasted with even more of that light.

Those of us know the potency of the light.  We have experienced first hand how disruptive it has been to our biological systems and our mind.  A little light goes a long way.  And we are souls who have prepared for this for lifetimes.  We have worked with our shadow, with our darkness, and that takes advanced souls.

Most people on the planet haven’t learned to work with their shadow, their emotions of fear and sadness.  Emotions of self-doubt and self-hate.  In fact they run from them, with drugs, alcohol, bad relationships, workaholism, you name it.

Most people are terrified to look within themselves because they tend to judge themselves harshly.

Humanity isn’t going to suddenly transform layers and layers, generations of unconscious issues and rise to the next level of awareness.



We are not here to save the planet.  If that’s someone’s end game, then they probably will not stick around this particular community.  As you go through this process of transformation, you realize that the rest of the population on the Earth’s surface will have to go through what we have gone through, in their own time, and in their own unique way.

Each and every human will awaken.  Most will not do it for a few more lifetimes.  In the non-physical realms, there is no time, so in that sense it doesn’t matter how long it takes.  The human mind likes to put limits and schedules on things.

If anyone is using the excuse that the rest of humanity is stopping them from receiving their own enlightenment, again, this isn’t the community that will support that idea.

Yes, it’s a good place to express our impatience, and our frustration.  And it’s natural to get frustrated with a consciousness that is so shut down.  And humanity’s consciousness is pretty shut down.  Absolutely.  But if anyone is waiting for the rest of the world to catch up, or even a larger portion to do so, so they can feel better, they will be very disappointed.


This process is an intimate one.  It’s between you and you, and no one else.  It’s a diving deep within the well of our own soul, and developing an intimate relationship with that self.  It’s a full-time job.  But, really, it’s not about struggling with it, or working at it.

It’s about just allowing it.  And it’s about enjoying life without the old baggage.  The old emotions of doubt, or of depression.  There is no processing involved.  We aren’t processing any more for ourselves or for the rest of humanity.

There is no virtue in suffering.  All of that gets left behind.

So we are not doing it for anyone else.  They must do it for and by themselves.  When they are ready.  They may want to explore the denser consciousness for awhile longer.

But, we are the examples of how it’s done.  We are the first group of humans to go through this process, but we actually do it individually.  As a group we can support each other, but we can’t provide anything else because each of us needs to experience it as a sovereign being.

It’s a foreign concept in a world where we are taught that we are responsible for others, for their welfare, and for their emotions. A world conditioned to believe that freedom can be imposed on others.

Not everyone is ready for their freedom.  That requires too much self-responsibility.

Embodied enlightenment requires being self-full.  Most people have no idea what it means to be self-full.  They see it as selfish.  But in order to move into our freedom, it requires a radical shift from being selfless to being seen as selfish.  So be it.  We can’t have it both ways.  We can’t have our freedom, and at the same time please everyone.

And, those who are also ready for their freedom, will sense our light, and they will have a template, created by us, by you, fellow pioneer.  And that will make their process easier.

    Thank you!! This is so fucking profound!

    YES YES YES “You see, as souls, we don’t judge our experiences in this third dimensional playground. As the humans, we tend to see our experiences on a scale of good to bad. But our soul just sees them as a way to garner wisdom.”

    Oh yeah. “Those of us know the potency of the light. We have experienced first hand how disruptive it has been to our biological systems and our mind. A little light goes a long way. And we are souls who have prepared for this for lifetimes. We have worked with our shadow, with our darkness, and that takes advanced souls.”

    yes. “This process is an intimate one. It’s between you and you, and no one else. It’s a diving deep within the well of our own soul, and developing an intimate relationship with that self. It’s a full-time job. But, really, it’s not about struggling with it, or working at it.”

    I AM a Sovereign LoveBean!

    I like to call it “profound allowing”. “It’s about just allowing it. And it’s about enjoying life without the old baggage. The old emotions of doubt, or of depression. There is no processing involved. We aren’t processing any more for ourselves or for the rest of humanity.”

    Thank you dearest Sistar Goddess…..I am crying now. I so needed to read this today.

    BEING Self-Full.

    love you tons and tons and thanks for your brilliant writing.

    A super-duper article, Maria, thank you! This morning I’m standing in the shower and suddenly the thought came whistling through my head… “So, whose timeline are you on?” Now, that may not sound like much, but holy Sovereign, batman, I actually stopped the soap suds to think of an answer! Whose timeline am I on? Is it mine, another’s, humanity’s, the galactics’, Source’s, and on and on my mind went. And I had to confess that most of my life I’ve been on others’ timelines… not so much now that I’ve retired, but still possible. And I concluded that as long as I’m aware when I’m on a timeline not my own, then I can make more reasonable choices and not get so darned frustrated when I don’t know what to do… something like that. How this relates to your article is, if it helps, be aware of when you are on any other’s timeline, especially if you can’t get off for a while, and believe me, I know what it’s like to be in those timelines of others, even in the spiritual scene, and it’s not comfortable, but it will eventually end. Hope that made sense. Love, B.

    My view is that we really don’t have a clue what may happen after any Event (either incremental or quantum in leap). We are always so limited by human linear viewpoints and knowledge.
    I think the en-masse scenario could still stay within possibilities though in some form. There have been ideas around at least back to Jane Roberts and Seth, about the complexity of how things may really be.
    There may be Parallel Realities (where we get to take both roads when faced with a choice point) and perhaps also Alternate Realities where there is a different personality version of us, and even different cast of characters and life circumstances, playing out the same sort of dynamics. Then our larger soul perspective would hold those all those experiences within it. Not sure where free-will fits in this in that free-will may take different expressions in different realities.
    We all have experienced that there is a ‘soul override’ factor even when we, as the ‘small self’ thinks it is choosing a path through free will but it seems closed off to us (and not just because of our ‘issues’. It seems we are on a complex path where our individual ‘free-will’ is already overridden at some level.
    Imagining a Quantum Leap Event for mass consciousness… It is still conceivable that soul level choice for us all says ‘yes’ even though the human aspect hasn’t consciously chosen that. Soul level ‘free-will’ is then still operating- and with a knowledge of all explorations and experiences in all dimensions within itself. Our point of perspective within our grater soul experience could then just jump to another focus within our soul where those issues have been already sorted or solutions found. So, there is then no need for many lifetimes of incremental linear clearing as we have experienced. This also wouldn’t need such a great adjustment as everyone is switching to another storyline.
    I also recall when I had my first spiritual experience. With my wake-up call, my issues didn’t just vanish but I did ‘jump’ to a greater context and inner imperative that worked with them very differently – and with free-will. I was certainly in a midlife crisis but I wasn’t asking for a spiritual answer to this. In fact, I had let my spiritual aspects slip into the background many years before and they were mainly operative only in my ethics and loving choices. I can only assume a mass awakening could at least be similar.
    Then to add to possibilities are views that everything we go through has already happened (at least in energy dynamic). We are then here to go along that trodden path experiencing these dynamics and finding new perceptions and choices to resolve this stuff. That view holds that these patterns have kept repeating and reached a stuck impasse of repetition and distorted thinking that is ego focused, and we are here to help release things back to light and Truth again.
    Also, if we accept we are all aspects of a whole or One, is free-will just an individual thing or does everyone benefit and leap from others invisible contributions? The 100th monkey phenomenon may be a metaphor of this. When a certain percentage of monkey consciousness learned a new way of using a tool, there was an instant jump to all knowing that as if they always had known – no increments and no monkeys choosing not to through freewill. Of course, some may argue that monkeys operate more from a group consciousness but aren’t we part of a larger group really?
    I keep an open mind on all this but hope there is something bigger afoot that can help move human experience out of its suffering, mess and forgetfulness. My vote is for accepting being unknowing in this and focusing on what is in front of me to experience and work through.

    I agree that we’re not all going to ascend together holding hands and singing kumbaya, courtesy of a so-called Event. I also agree that ascension is personal and must be experienced personally.

    However, there was/is a grand plan here (a never-before-been-done one, we’re told) for planet earth to ascend, along with her inhabitants. Hence, the light influxes helping to trigger and accelerate our personal ascension processes. We know that grand plan didn’t quite go ‘as planned’ and has had to be ‘adjusted’ many times. And it will likely have to be adjusted many more to accommodate free will and a myriad other factors, I’m sure.

    With these macro adjustments, comes our own micro pivots to adapt us personally to the changes and recalculate our personal path to self-realization – experiences our soul seeks through authentic self-expression. Such holy grail soul experiences can feel like pipe dreams when we find ourselves in an energy soup populated predominantly by individuals with whom we no longer resonate.

    So, while we need not ‘wait’ for others to wake up in order to advance our own ascension process, our soul’s ability to self-realize through us may very well require others around us to be at a frequency near us or, at least, ready to begin their own ascension process, and anywhere in between. Otherwise, common ground is lacking. It’s no fun ascending alone. And when you’re in the later stages, having let go of so much of the old, it’s natural to want NEW to start as soon as possible, and that’s not likely to occur without the ability to commune and share with others of like mind. Meantime, we go it largely alone.

    So, waiting for others to ascend in order to ascend ourselves? No. Yearning for others to commune and share with at higher frequencies? Yes.

  6. beautiful and a 100% agreed with Dear Maria! I have my own theories about this Event I believe it already happenned and that’s why we see so many of our human companions awakening, we’re just adjusting real life to that. Idk.. maybe? anyway I loved that this came on my birthday! love it!! ♥ I watched Interestelas on saturday, I loved that movie.. Humans going to 5th dimension and talking to themselves in 3d? sounds familiar? I guess yes.. as I believe that all this talking about “aliens” and “them goodfriends” are talking about ourselves.. our own beautiful souls that already exists in love realms… just waiting for us to welcome them into our lives.. in any expression we choose to name them.. beautiful beautiful.. lots of love
