… The Shift in Human Nature

You're starting to see integrity change. Awareness recalibrates integrity, and the Human Being who would sit there and take advantage of another Human Being in an old energy would never do it in a new energy. The reason? It will become intuitive, so this is a shift in Human Nature as well, for in the past you have assumed that people take advantage of people first and integrity comes later. That's just ordinary Human nature.

In the past, Human nature expressed within governments worked like this: If you were stronger than the other one, you simply conquered them. If you were strong, it was an invitation to conquer. If you were weak, it was an invitation to be conquered. No one even thought about it. It was the way of things. The bigger you could have your armies, the better they would do when you sent them out to conquer. That's not how you think today. Did you notice?

Any country that thinks this way today will not survive, for humanity has discovered that the world goes far better by putting things together instead of tearing them apart. The new energy puts the weak and strong together in ways that make sense and that have integrity. Take a look at what happened to some of the businesses in this great land (USA). Up to 30 years ago, when you started realizing some of them didn't have integrity, you eliminated them. What happened to the tobacco companies when you realized they were knowingly addicting your children? Today, they still sell their products to less-aware countries, but that will also change.

What did you do a few years ago when you realized that your bankers were actually selling you homes that they knew you couldn't pay for later? They were walking away, smiling greedily, not thinking about the heartbreak that was to follow when a life's dream would be lost. Dear American, you are in a recession. However, this is like when you prune a tree and cut back the branches. When the tree grows back, you've got control and the branches will grow bigger and stronger than they were before, without the greed factor. Then, if you don't like the way it grows back, you'll prune it again! I tell you this because awareness is now in control of big money. It's right before your eyes, what you're doing. But fear often rules. …

French 'rogue trader' Kerviel must pay 1.0 mn euros to bank

Yahoo – AFP, Céline Agniel, September 23, 2016

 trades which nearly bankrupted Societe Generale in 2008, though in total he
actually spent only 150 days in prison (AFP Photo/Kenzo Tribouillard)

Versailles (France) (AFP) - A French appeals court on Friday ordered "rogue trader" Jerome Kerviel to pay a million euros to Societe Generale over the nearly five billion euros he squandered through his reckless risk-taking.

But the court in Versailles, outside Paris, laid the lion's share of the blame for the 4.9 billion euro ($5.5 billion) loss at the feet of the French banking giant, citing its "woefully inadequate" internal checks.

Kerviel, 39, was "partially responsible for the loss" that brought Societe Generale to the brink of bankruptcy in 2008, the court said.

But "regardless of (Kerviel's) wiles and determination, or the sophistication of the procedures he used, such a loss could not have been incurred without the woefully inadequate oversight systems at Societe Generale," the court said.

The deficiencies and "managerial choices... gave an ill-intentioned employee such as Jerome Kerviel a wide scope of action," it added.

In a civil case, Kerviel was first ordered to repay the entirety of the enormous losses but that was quashed on appeal.

'I owe nothing'

Despite Friday's verdict that he must now pay a million euros, Kerviel said: "I still believe I owe nothing to Societe Generale."

He said the decision gave him the "energy to continue the struggle" and would go on fighting for a retrial.

His lawyer David Koubbi, while trumpeting that the Versailles court "wiped out 99.98 percent of the sum" hanging over his client, said he would oppose "any effort to recover" the one million euros.

Jean Veil, a lawyer for Societe Generale, had called the ruling "completely satisfactory".

Koubbi said Friday's decision would be "excellent fodder" for three lawsuits that are pending against the bank as well as the bid for a retrial.

The decision did not bear directly on a 2.2 billion euro tax break that the French state awarded to the bank in compensation for the losses -- a protection that is available in fraud cases.

But the government said it would review Societe Generale's tax situation in view of the ruling that the bank was overwhelmingly responsible.

Kerviel, who was convicted of breach of trust, forgery and entering false data for the trades, was sentenced to five years in prison, two of which were suspended.

In total he actually spent only 150 days in prison.

'Crook, fraudster, terrorist'

Kerviel has always maintained that his bosses turned a blind eye as long as the profits kept rolling in.

His colleagues said he was generally well thought of by his bosses, but Societe Generale's then CEO described Kerviel as a "crook, fraudster and terrorist" after the scam fell apart.

Friday's verdict follows hearings at the Versailles appeal court in June in which lawyers for Societe Generale made a fresh attempt to claw back the cash.

The bank said it had "always recognised the weaknesses and faults in its system of checks", but that Kerviel was responsible for the trades.

In June, a Paris labour tribunal ordered Societe Generale to pay him 450,000 euros in damages, saying he had been fired "without genuine or serious cause". The bank has appealed.

Kerviel, the son of a village blacksmith from the far west of rural Brittany, divides opinion in France.

Many believe he is a scapegoat while others think he should pay the price for his actions.

He has never denied taking risks -- at one point staking 50 billion euros of the bank's money -- but maintains that his bosses were just as much at fault as he was.

Although his annual salary of some 100,000 euros was modest compared with that of some of his fellow traders, Kerviel reportedly generated 1.9 billion euros for the bank before the financial crisis accelerated his losses.

Since his release from prison, Kerviel has reinvented himself as a computer security consultant and a trenchant critic of "casino capitalism", even meeting Pope Francis after making a pilgrimage to Rome to protest against the "tyranny of the markets".

Neelie Kroes failed to declare offshore firm directorship while in Brussels

DutchNews, September 22, 2016

Ex-EU commissioner Neelie Kroes came under fire in several newspapers on Thursday for failing to declare she was a director in an offshore firm at the time she was appointed to the Commission. 

Leaked files from the Bahamas corporate register show Kroes was recruited by a UAE venture named Mint Holdings set up to buy Enron assets, the Guardian, Financieele Dagblad and Trouw reported. 

The information comes from a leak of 1.3 million files from the Bahamas corporate registry which has revealed the names of tens of thousands of people with interests in the tax haven. 

Kroes, who is now a paid advisor to Bank of America and Uber, was not allowed by the commissioners’ code of conduct to have any other roles. She did declare previous jobs at more than 60 companies, foundations and educational bodies, the Guardian said. 

Kroes’ told the papers through her lawyer that formally she should have declared this directorship. He added that ‘she made her filings in good faith because she believed Mint Holdings had been liquidated in 2002, before her appointment as Europe’s antitrust watchdog.’ 

Business interests 

The Financieele Dagblad reports that in 2004, Kroes was questioned by the European parliament for failing to file about her advisory role at American defence company Lockheed Martin. She said at the time it had been a one-off job. 

The Guardian also points out that before becoming anti-trust commissioner, Kroes had to pledge ‘not to engage into any business activity following the end of my term’. 

Asked why Kroes had gone back on this pledge to work for Uber and others, the lawyer said Kroes had kept the pledge after completing her first term with the European Commission. 

‘Instead, she was honoured with a second term in a completely different field. Having now finished her second term, she no longer feels bound by the commitment made prior to taking her first post,’ the Guardian quoted her lawyer as saying.

Dutch ports at centre of dirty diesel trade, Swiss report claims

DutchNews, September 19, 2016

Swiss commodity trading firms are exploiting lax regulatory standards to sell toxic fuel to Africa and much of the dirty diesel is stored in Amsterdam and Rotterdam, according to a report by Swiss NGO Public Eye

Rotterdam oil firm Vitol and Dutch Swiss Trafigura, have major refining and storage interests in the Netherlands and in Antwerp where crude oil is mixed with other substances to keep prices low, Public Eye claims.

‘The 160-page report also shows that the trading companies not only ship dirty diesel and dirty gasoline — and in some areas even sell it at their own pumps — but also produce both fuels themselves,’ Public Eye said.

‘On land or at sea, they mix up a petrochemical cocktail from refinery products and other components known in the industry as “African Quality”. These toxic fuels are mainly mixed in the ARA-Zone (Amsterdam-Rotterdam-Antwerp) where Swiss trading firms have their own refineries and storage facilities,’ the report said. 

Banned substances

Many West African countries that export high grade crude oil to Europe receive toxic low quality fuel in return. 

Public Eye researchers drew fuel at local pumps in eight countries and found diesel samples contained up to 378 times more sulfur than is permitted in Europe. Other toxic substances, such as benzene and poly-cyclical aromatic hydrocarbons, were also found in concentrations that are banned in Europe. 

Unacceptable

‘It is unacceptable that we continue to supply developing countries with sub-standard fuels and vehicles, which result in major health impacts by increasing air pollution,’ said Eric Solheim, executive director of the UN’s environment programme.

‘In our globalized economy, there are good reasons to universallyapply clean fuel and vehicle standards in every country. Dumping old and dirty substances and technologies needs to stop now.’ 

According to Trouw, both Vitol and Trafigura say they support measures to reduce pollution and will reduce the level of sulfur permitted in fuel if the countries concerned change the regulations.

Matthew message (Channelled by Suzanne Ward, September 17, 2016)

Matthew Ward - September 17, 2016

Matthew Ward
With loving greetings from all souls at this station, this is Matthew. Let us begin by addressing the thoughts in many minds, and foremost is concern about North Korea’s successful missile launchings. If that country does send a nuclear warhead into space, detonation will be prevented by universal family members who continuously patrol your skies—the same will be so if any other nation would make such an attempt.

The ceasefire in Syria for humanitarian purposes is welcome, to be sure, but much more than this bandage is needed to relieve the plight of people in that war-torn country. Peace will come; however, the strong energy streamers of hostility and distrust emitted by opposing religious and secular groups will cause detours along the way.

As for the energetic scenarios described in our last message about the presidential election in the United States, Hillary Clinton’s withdrawing from the race for health reasons has an edge on the other possibilities that also would put Bernie Sanders in the White House. This doesn’t mean that if the edge widens, the scenarios pertaining to Clinton’s activities will evaporate. The energy of those streamers will run its course to bring that information to light, thus the possibility remains that it will be her disqualification for the presidency that elevates Sanders to the office.

The truth about “9/11” will be revealed, but not until after the Rockefeller faction of the Illuminati have lost all their influence in the government, economy and mainstream media of the United States.

That nation’s finger-pointing at Russia in a series of hacked emails and portraying Vladimir Putin as a meddler in US political affairs and a dictator who wants to control the countries formerly within the USSR is political posturing and fodder for the media. Putin doesn’t want a new cold war era or conflicts with any country; he is one of the individuals in governments, military forces and the corporate and economic sectors whose efforts behind closed doors are aimed at ending the Illuminati’s long reign of global corruption, deception, assassination, initiating wars and fostering impoverishment.

Rising vibratory levels that also are helping to rid Earth of those plagues on humanity are playing havoc with people who don’t understand what is transpiring. What you know is the evolution of a civilization and transformation of a world, most are seeing as perpetual turmoil, divisiveness and confusion, and the sense of time passing faster and faster is unsettling as well. For many, this means rushing through responsibilities, yet often days end before all tasks are accomplished, adding pressure to bodies and minds already stressed by the effects of high vibrations.

A number of readers are writing about the challenges they are encountering in that respect, and, while awakening souls in particular are seeking guidance, lightworkers are not immune to the stress of adjusting to successively higher frequencies along Earth’s ascension pathway. Rather than repeat stress-reduction suggestions we have offered, I asked my mother to note the dates of messages so that anyone who would like to read that information anew or as reminders can easily find it. [ July 4, 2013 has the most comprehensive coverage, and March 23, 2008; March 10, 2009; November 22, 2013; and March 20, 2016 offer additional insight into causes and relief of stress.] Thank you, Mother. We want to emphasize that changing a negative thought to one that is positive is the fastest way to ease stressful feelings about any situation.

“Why don’t vibrations affect everyone the same way?” Actually, vibrations do affect everyone the same way in that they magnify all people’s personal characteristics and behavioral tendencies. It is reactions to vibrations that vary greatly, and that is because each person is unique. You differ in a multitude of ways just physically, from size and age to body chemistry and cellular structure; however, it is beliefs, experiences, relationships and attitudes that most profoundly affect individuals’ reactions.

But speaking again about the entire populace and stating this most basically, responses to vibrations are in accordance with whether minds and hearts are open or closed. We digress a bit to say that vibratory levels differ immensely, but always the “ingredient” of vibrations is the love-light essence of Creator, the most powerful force in the cosmos. Although generally light is considered visual and love a sensation, they are one and the same energy; and in a spiritual context, love, light and love-light are synonymous. Now then, persons who are open to this energy can receive and send love along its spectrum of uplifting manifestations; those who close out the energy cannot.

It may seem that the opposite of love is hatred, but it isn’t—the opposite is the absence of love. Fear also is the absence of love, and even though fear energy never can have the power that is inherent in love, it is strong enough to “parent,” so to say, ruthlessness, greed, violence, deceit and lust for power and control. People who live in fear are “in the dark” insofar as spiritual and conscious awareness and people who cause fear-filled circumstances are captives of the dark. That is why so often we urge you to send light to all of Earth —only when people “see the light” can their hearts and minds open to let love displace fear.

We have been asked how to send light. Every personhas the capacity to be a channel of universal energy, the all-powerful love-light, and simply the desire, or intention, to send that energy to a person or a specific area or to all of Earth automatically and instantly directs that energy to the intended recipient. If you wish to do this more formally, perhaps a prayer, meditation or visualization, of course that is fine, but not necessary—it is your feelings that count. And count they do! The collective feelings of people who want to live peacefully and in harmony with Nature, with justness, dignity and prosperity for all, is the energy force that is manifesting that kind of world.

“Are people in Nirvana affected by different astrological signs the way we are?” No. Etheric bodies and Nirvana itself vibrate at frequencies that are not affected by planetary interaction in your solar system that can produce effects on dense bodies like yours.

“With the advent of autonomous robots, do they pose a threat to our future and will artificial intelligence be used by the Illuminati to stop our ascension into fourth density and create massive unemployment and social unrest?” When robots are commonly used by industries, the tedious assembly line jobs this technology replaces—and that is the only“threat”—will end, and depending on workers’ ages, they can retire or prepare for jobs in other fields that will be much more satisfying and financially rewarding.

That will not happen in the blink of an eye, but this valuable part of Earth’s Golden Age is on the way. When society realizes the need for restorative recreation— re-creation—which the new economic system will support, people will be much healthier, happier, more meaningfully active and prosperous. Artificial intelligence also will be used for purposes that enrich life. And, the Illuminati never have had the ability to stop anyone’s personal ascension to fourth density and beyond in spiritual and conscious awareness.

Mother, there is no need to type the questions about twin souls—I’ll reply from your list. It’s improbable that a soul contract would include the reuniting of twins; each contract is an integral part of a pre-birth agreement intended to benefit all participants, and the twins might not be able to fill the roles that all others in the agreement need. Because twins are known only to each other, there is no “unmistakable means of identification” that apply to all twins. No, twins do not influence each other’s soul contract choices or conscious decisions to any greater or lesser extent than any other soul prior to or after incarnating. Reuniting with a twin in a physical civilization doesn’t assure karmic completion, and being twins isn’t a step-up in the evolutionary process. Yes, twins are more likely to recognize each other in a highly evolved civilization or its spirit world. It is more than “possible,” it is very likely “that someone could be wrong about a particular person being their twin soul”— as we stated in a prior message, twins are extremely rare. We add that preoccupation with wanting to know if you are a twin or to reunite with your twin can diminish the fulfillment of your contract choices for this lifetime.

“I am thinking about the shift in which many will die because their bodies will not tolerate the rising vibratory levels. What if they have young children? Will all children up to a certain age naturally rise with Earth? Is there a certain point where humans become responsible for this decision? Will family structuring evolve into new forms?”

When bodies abruptly lose viability due to rising vibratory levels, death will be attributed to heart failure, aneurism, massive stroke or perhaps the result of a fall or vehicle crash. Whatever the medical reason, young children learn to cope with grief and the loss of a parent. Down through the ages countless souls have chosen this experience to achieve balance, and in this unprecedented era in the universe, pre-birth agreements take into account that children may lose one or both parents due to vibratory intolerance. If so, just as now, families will accept medical diagnoses.

Heightening vibrations will provide heartwarming aspects, too. People will be enlightened about life in a spirit world and the certainty of reunions with beloved persons and pets. As telepathic connections open, there can be clear communication between souls on Earth and elsewhere in the universe; and, when your society is more highly evolved, residents on the planet and in Nirvana can visit back and forth.

Naturally rising with Earth—or better said, personal ascension—is a matter of growing spiritually and consciously, and age is not a factor; for 30 years or more, a considerable number of newborns arrived in an evolved status. Every person has the choice, not the responsibility, to grow in the awareness that enables physically going along with Earth for the duration of the life span chosen in the soul contract. Personal ascension does not require traveling with the planet into higher densities—souls evolved throughout the millennia when Earth was mired in deep third density. The grand advantage now is the opportunity to complete third density karma in one lifetime, aided by accelerating vibrations and often the loving assistance of stronger souls.

Family structuring has been evolving for quite some time, and this deserves some thought in the context of ascension. There are biracial and interfaith marriages; in some areas, same sex and transgender marriages; youths are rebelling against arranged marriages. Divorced parents share custody of their children; remarriage creates “blended” families; some parents choose commitment over legal status; surrogate mothers and in vitro fertilization are not unusual; birth control enables married couples to choose not to have children. Children removed from abusive or neglectful parents live with other family members or in foster homes, single persons are adopting children, people in one country are adopting children from another. Three generations may live in the same home, family members may live far distant from each other, elderly parents may live in assisted-living facilities. Some familial arrangements are due to progress in medical science, but the more profound evidence of change is the growing respect for all loving relationships and family configurations.

Beloved brothers and sisters, as the vanguard of the spiritual and conscious evolution underway, simply by living your light you exemplify enthusiasm and confidence in Earth’s future—as your vibrations keep rising, you keep raising the vibrations of the world. Light beings throughout this universe honor you and surround you with unconditional love.

LOVE and PEACE

Brazil ousts lawmaker who pushed for Rousseff impeachment

Brasília (AFP) - Brazil's lower house of Congress voted Monday to oust its former speaker Eduardo Cunha, who spearheaded the drive to impeach president Dilma Rousseff only to suffer his own graft-stained downfall.

Cunha, who is often compared to the dark, manipulative villain Frank Underwood of the hit Netflix series "House of Cards," was stripped of his seat in the Chamber of Deputies by a resounding vote of 450 in favor, 10 against and nine abstentions.

"I declare lawmaker Eduardo Cunha stripped of office for conduct incompatible with lawmakers' duties," said the decision read out at the conclusion of the late-night session.

Cunha, a 57-year-old conservative allied with the Evangelical Christian right, was a central figure in Brazil's long impeachment drama.

His enemies accuse him of using his power to launch impeachment proceedings as a trump card to stave off his own prosecution for allegedly taking millions of dollars in bribes.

He resigned as speaker in July amid swirling accusations of corruption linked to the huge state oil company Petrobras.

He was forced to face the music in Congress for having "lied" to other lawmakers about his possession of secret Swiss bank accounts.

Cunha, who denies any wrongdoing, handled his own defense at Monday's session. He mainly displayed the cool and calculating persona he is known for, but occasionally his voice broke with emotion.

"I didn't lie. There's no bank account. Where's the proof?" he said.

"Don't judge me based on what public opinion says," he implored, reminding his colleagues that at least 160 of them also face judicial investigations.

But his appeals fell on deaf ears. The vote against him was well clear of the simple majority of 257 needed in the 513-member chamber.

Cunha was first suspended in May, less than a month after lawmakers voted to open impeachment proceedings against Rousseff, Brazil's first woman president.

Rousseff was definitively removed from office on August 31, and replaced by her vice president turned nemesis, Michel Temer.

The new center-right administration brought an end to 13 years of leftist rule in Brazil.

Evangelical 'gangster'

Cunha used a variety of stalling tactics to slow the proceedings that ultimately led to his ouster from Congress. The process dragged on for almost a year, the longest in Brazilian history.

Analysts had predicted he would continue to stall by asking his peers to delay a vote on his fate, arguing for a simple suspension or asking that lawmakers allow him to keep the right to hold public office.

But many of his onetime allies deserted him -- including in his own PMDB party, the biggest in Brazil and also Temer's party.

Rousseff, from the leftist Workers' Party, accused both Temer and Cunha of orchestrating a coup against her.

Thanks largely to Cunha's leadership, the lower house voted heavily in favor last year of opening an impeachment trial against Rousseff, on charges that she illegally manipulated government accounts.

On April 17, the day Rousseff's impeachment trial was authorized, Cunha was the target of a barrage of insults in Congress from leftist deputies, who shouted "Gangster!" and "Putschist!"

Cunha was long considered one of the best wheelers-and-dealers in Brasilia, building a considerable support base including the powerful agriculture lobby, fellow evangelicals and the so-called "bullet caucus" of politicians with police and army connections.

He won prominence promoting a conservative social agenda that included a "Heterosexual Pride Day" and restrictions on abortion. He has been reported to own no less than 150 Internet domains using the name "Jesus."

His defense Monday was sprinkled with religious references, as well as condemnation of Rousseff and her Workers' Party (PT).

In the end, he outlasted her by just two weeks.

"It's the price I'm paying so Brazil can be free of the PT. They're making me pay the price for impeachment," he said.

No matter his fate, he said, no one can take from him "the pleasure of seeing that criminal government go."

Clinton leaves 9/11 ceremony early, blames overheating

Washington (AFP) - Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign was dealt a blow Sunday when the Democratic nominee fell sick and had to leave a 9/11 memorial ceremony in New York, an episode sure to fuel Donald Trump's insinuations that she is not healthy enough for the nation's top office.

The former secretary of state was at the high-profile ceremony at Ground Zero in Manhattan for 90 minutes and greeted some family members of those killed in the deadly terror strikes 15 years ago, her campaign said in a statement.

"During the ceremony, she felt overheated so departed to go to her daughter's apartment, and is feeling much better," the statement said.

An AFP journalist at the ceremony noted that Clinton, dressed in a navy suit and white blouse, was greeting people as she left and did not appear to be rushing out. She walked out accompanied by an aide at her elbow.

However, a video posted on Twitter showed Clinton seeming unsteady as she waited to get into a black van. She appeared to stumble as she was helped into the vehicle, held up on either side by members of her entourage.

It was a humid day in New York, with temperatures around 82 degrees Fahrenheit (28 Celsius).

Clinton reappeared a few hours later, apparently recovered as she walked out of her daughter Chelsea's home. She smiled for the media and posed for pictures with a young girl before departing in a vehicle for her home in Chappaqua.

"I'm feeling great, it's a beautiful day in New York," Clinton said.

Health issues?

Trump was uncharacteristically silent on Twitter after Clinton's illness, as both candidates took a break from formal campaigning to mark the somber day of remembrance in the United States.

But the businessman, his spokespeople and surrogates have promoted the idea in recent weeks that Clinton, 68, has serious health problems.

The internet is awash with claims that she may have a brain tumor, Parkinson's or dementia. Some complain that she has "seizure-like facial expressions" and others allege that she twitches.

Trump, 70, has said Clinton is "not strong enough to be president" and that she "lacks the mental and physical stamina to take on ISIS."

Former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani, a Trump supporter, has said that Clinton was "tired" and "looked sick."

Trump spokeswoman Katrina Pierson, who is not a doctor, last month diagnosed Clinton with dysphasia, a disorder that impairs speech and comprehension.

The root of the claims lies in 2012, when Clinton was nearing the end of her stint as secretary of state and a stomach virus and dehydration prompted her to faint, causing what her doctor said was a concussion.

They said they found a blood clot on the brain and Clinton complained of double vision. She appeared in spectacles featuring a prism when testifying before Congress on Benghazi in January 2013. She was later given the all-clear.

The former first lady has dismissed "conspiracy theories" about her health and points to a detailed report from her doctor declaring her fit to serve as president.

She blamed a coughing fit during a speech in Cleveland last week on allergies.

'Vitality and viability'

Clinton's sudden illness is unlikely to be a turning point in the White House race, said Jennifer Lawless, a professor of government at American University in Washington.

From all indications, it appears to just be a brief bout of overheating, she told AFP.

"What the Clinton campaign needs to do over the course of the next several days is demonstrate her vitality and viability. She has to be at tons of events and seem very energetic," Lawless said.

Clinton had been trying to move on from a blunder in which she told a crowd at a fundraiser late Friday that "to be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables."

"The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic -- you name it."

Trump and his supporters slammed the remarks. Clinton said she regretted saying "half," but then listed a number of "deplorable" things about Trump.

"I won't stop calling out bigotry and racist rhetoric in this campaign," she said.

A Washington Post-ABC News poll out Sunday -- conducted in the days before she made the remark -- shows that 70 percent of the electorate has already decided who to vote for, and only 30 percent are undecided or could switch.

Clinton leads Trump 46 percent to 41 percent lead among likely voters, according to the poll, which had a 4.5 percentage-point margin of error.

Matthew message (Channelled by Suzanne Ward, August 19, 2016)

Matthew Ward – August 19, 2016

Matthew Ward
With loving greetings from all souls at this station, this is Matthew. With nominees for United States president set in stone, or so it would seem, it is understandable that you are asking how it is possible for Bernie Sanders to become that country’s next president.

Our last message didn’t enumerate the scenarios that Earth’s monitors in Nirvana are keeping an eye on because we were waiting to tell you the only one with significance, the one that has gained unstoppable momentum. None has. Therefore, we shall tell you the various possibilities that affect Sanders and the two major parties’ nominees—energy around other contenders is too weak to materialize streamers with development potential.

The universe’s constant balancing act provides ways to resolve a blockage in an energy field, and that is what’s happening here. The preponderance of energy generated around Sanders is positive even though he is not a presidential nominee; the energy generated around Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, who are nominees, is predominantly negative. The overall energy investment, which comprises the thoughts and feelings of the populace, produced countless streamers and they are darting about in the collective consciousness. To bring order out of that chaos, the energy coalesced into various scenarios that represent the total investment and each has the potential to unblock the field and enable the energy around Sanders to flow in the direction it was given, toward the presidency.

Now, the scenarios. Clinton’s private dealings with other nations while she was Secretary of State or her complicity in irregularities in the Democratic party’s primaries could be disclosed. Some of her sworn statements under oath could be shown as the falsehoods they are. The sources and uses of Clinton Foundation funds or her long-time Illuminati affiliation could be revealed. Any one of those would officially disqualify her as a nominee, and her health issue could disqualify her physically. If any of those scenarios attains unbeatable dominance, Sanders will replace Clinton on the ballot and win the election. Or, she could remain in the race, citizens who are dissatisfied with her and Trump could join Sanders’ supporters in electing him via write-in votes. And, since this energetic situation still is unsettled, other possibilities could arise that will put him in the White House.

Any of those departures from the country’s traditional procedures at this stage of the process would be unusual, to be sure. However, few would call the 2016 political campaigns “business as usual,” so Sanders’ return to the presidential arena with the person he wants as vice president may not be all that surprising.

Eventually the populace will understand that this was simply the workings of energy—the vibrations supported Mr. Sanders personally and as the people’s choice. This will be understood as well in its much larger context: It is part and parcel of the ongoing momentous change as corruption and oppression give way to freedom and upliftment of the entire civilization.

Resistance also is part of this transformation because fear of change is inherent in third density consciousness. Dark souls are fearful of losing their hold over the many who are fearful about conditions that the dark ones have created or controlled— fear energy of the many is what keeps the dark ones going— but efforts to retain the status quo will be futile. All intentions and conditions in low vibratory levels will continue to disintegrate as vibrations keep rising.

You are accustomed to reading “love,” “peace” and “unity” in messages from light sources. Have you noticed how often these words are used by national, civic and religious leaders, individuals interviewed on newscasts, and chanting crowds holding placards with the words boldly printed? Like everything else in existence, words are energy, and spoken or written, they emit vibrations that attract more of their kind—the universal law of attraction—and in all of your languages, love, peace and unity have the highest vibrations. Now that these words are being used frequently around the world, their powerful reverberations are awakening the peoples.

“I think of myself as a searcher for truth. I don’t know if this is the same as ‘light worker,’ but it seems there should be more to that than wanting to know what is true and what isn’t. My question is, what is a light worker and how does anyone know if they are?” Thinking of yourself as a searcher for truth and asking about lightworkers shows that you are on the same pathway they are, just not as far along on your journey.

Being discerning as to what information is truthful and what is not is an important part of enlightenment, of self-discovery; however, much more important than relying on external sources for answers is asking within, where all truth is known. The answers, which are messages from soul-level to the consciousness, come as intuition, instinct, conscience, inspiration and aspiration. When you heed the answers you receive, perhaps as strong sensations or images or words in your mind’s eye or a voice in your mind, your life flows smoothly. This signifies that your decisions and actions are aligned with choices you made in your soul contract prior to birth.

We made quite a leap from your question, so let us return to it. A simple description of lightworker is a person who lives in godly ways—God made it simpler still: Be kind. Millions of people around the world who haven’t heard the word lightworker nevertheless are by sharing their time, skills, money and other resources with those in need. Although we say light worker , what those individuals and all who do identify themselves as such actually are doing is serving the light by living within it.

Light, the same energy as love just expressed differently, is radiated by acts of kindness and attributes like honesty, compassion, gratitude, forgiveness, generosity; by being nonjudgmental and open to considering others’ perspectives while staying true to one’s own principles and values. Radiated light uplifts others—the ripple effects of a genuine smile, a comforting hug or an encouraging word are immeasurable—and light within imparts a sense of peacefulness, optimism and self-confidence, not with hubris, but humility. When lightworkers encounter challenges, they know their inner strength and determined spirit will carry them through as they continue helping society move ever closer to the greater glories of Earth’s Golden Age, when all peoples will know that every life form on the planet is inseparably connected with all others.

Our suggestion to all newcomers to spiritual information is to read the guidance recently offered to a gentleman who identified himself as “an awakening soul.” Mother, please add the date of that message. [ May 19, 2016 ] Thank you.

“It has been said many times by different channelers that after we go from this life, we go to a much better place. That spirit guides await for us to help us and guide us. So, can you explain this for me?” Indeed, Nirvana is a much better place in myriad ways for people who lived in accordance with their soul contracts, but they don’t need spirit guides there. Guides, your guardian angel and others in the angelic realms, souls with whom you are bonded in love, and members of other civilizations are God’s emissaries who, unseen, help you during your Earth lifetime. Awaiting your arrival in Nirvana are persons you know and are dear to you.

Each soul has a unique frequency, and moments prior to death of the body, it sends a special signal that is received by all with whom that soul has love bonds. The welcoming party can be family and friends in any lifetime, not only those in your immediate past life who preceded you to a spirit world, even if they have embodied again on the planet or in another civilization. Because you will transition from an Earth lifetime, you will reunite with those loved ones and your dear pets in Nirvana; however, reunions can take place anywhere in this universe where the energy corresponds to the souls’ vibrations.

“I just read the message where Matthew said the soul is liberated from people when they enter Nirvana. What does that mean? Where do the souls go?” The soul is liberated from—or, not affected by—any damage to the person’s etheric body or psyche. The etheric and physical bodies are so closely aligned that any illness or injury the physical body sustains also affects the etheric body, and emotional traumas experienced during the lifetime remain in the psyche, thus people enter Nirvana with those conditions. During the healing process, which is customized to meet the needs of each person, the soul can go wherever it wishes at the same time it is with the person—it IS the person!

Souls, the pure love-light essence of Creator, are energy fluctuating at higher vibratory levels than etheric bodies and much higher than the density of physical bodies, so souls always are “liberated” and can be wherever they wish simply by the thought of being there. That is why during a person’s sleep time, the soul may visit those with whom it has love bonds, perform light service in worlds where that kind of assistance is needed, or enhance its spiritual and conscious awareness by studies in advanced civilizations.

Beloved brothers and sisters, as aspects of Creator, the omniscient, omnipotent and eternal I AM Oneness of All, you always have had unlimited potential to manifest whatever you wish. That capability is inherent in the makeup of the soul, and as you continue evolving, you will be able to produce what you now think of as miracles.

LOVE and PEACE

Former pope Benedict thanks God for retirement

Berlin (AFP) - Retired pope Benedict XVI says he has no regrets about his 2013 decision to retire and thanks God for enabling him to recover his "freedom" from the responsibilities associated with leading the world's 1.2 billion Catholics.

"I thank God that this responsibility, which I could no longer bear, no longer weighs upon me and that I can in all humility move forward with Him, that I can live with friends and friends can visit me more," Benedict, 89, says in an extract from "Final Conversations", a series of interviews with German journalist Peter Seewald.

In the work to appear Friday the former pontiff says that "of course it wasn't easy" to take the decision to become the first pope to retire in seven centuries.

But the erstwhile Joseph Ratzinger insisted that "it was the right moment" to step down.

He explained that the decision stemmed from a March 2012 visit to Mexico and Cuba during which he realised he no longer had the strength to oversee World Youth Day celebrations in Rio the following year.

After he stepped down it was successor Pope Francis who led celebrations for three million faithful on Copacabana Beach.

Seewald told German news weekly Die Zeit, in an article which appeared Thursday, that Ratzinger "fell in love... in a very serious way" as a student.

But his collection of interviews do not contain any revelations on the scandal of paedophile priests, although Ratzinger indicates that he would "deal with things straight away" if he did get wind of an issue that required action.

Benedict admitted he had initial reservations on the choice of Pope Francis, Argentine Jorge Bergoglio, to succeed him.

"I was uncertain to begin with. But then I saw how he speaks with God, with men -- and I was very happy."

He also told Seewald that he felt he himself had "perhaps not been enough among men" during his stewardship and found Francis' direct style of engagement "very good."

Even so, "I do of course ask myself how long he will keep it up... because that requires a lot of energy."

“ … Spirituality (Religions)

Number one: Spirituality. The systems of spiritual design on your planet are starting to change. This is not telling you that certain ones are going to go away. They're simply going to change. Some of the largest spiritual systems, which you would call organized religion on the planet, are shifting. They're going to shift away from that which is authority on the outside to authority on the inside. It will eventually be a different way of worship, slowly changing the rules while keeping the basic doctrine the same.

The doctrine of the Christ has always been to find the God inside. The teachings were clear. The examples of the miracles were given as an example of what humans could do, not to set a man up for worship as a God. So when that has been absorbed, the teaching of the Christ can remain the teaching of the Christ. It simply changes the interpretation. 

The teachings of the great prophets of the Middle East (all related to each other) are about unity and love. So once the holy words are redefined with new wisdom, the Human changes, not the words of the prophets. In fact, the prophets become even more divinely inspired and their wisdom becomes even more profound.

You're going to lose a pope soon. I have no clock. Soon to us can mean anything to you. The one who replaces him may surprise you, for his particular organization will be in survival mode at that point in time. That is to say that fewer and fewer are interested in starting the priesthood. Fewer and fewer young people are interested in the organization, and the new pope must make changes to keep his church alive. That means that his organization will remain, but with a more modern look at what truly is before all of you in a new energy. It is not the fall of the church. It is instead the recalibration of the divinity inside that would match the worship that goes on. It's a win-win situation. The new pope will have a difficult time, since the old guard will still be there. There could even be an assassination attempt, such is the way the old energy dies hard. That is number one. Watch for it. It's a change in the way spiritual systems work. It's a realignment of spiritual systems that resound to a stronger truth that is Human driven, rather than prophet driven.…”


"The Recalibration of Awareness – Apr 20/21, 2012 (Kryon channeled by Lee Carroll) (Subjects: Energy, Recalibration LecturesGod/CreatorReligions/Spiritual systems  (Catholic Church, Priests/Nun’s, Worship, John Paul Pope, Women in the Church otherwise church will go, Current Pope won’t do it),  Middle East, Jews, Governments will change (Internet, Media, Democracies, Dictators, North Korea, Nations voted at once), Integrity (Businesses, Tobacco Companies, Bankers/ Financial Institutes, Pharmaceutical company to collapse),  Illuminati (Started in Greece, with Shipping, Financial markets, Stock markets, Pharmaceutical money (fund to build Africa, to develop)), Shift of Human Consciousness, (Old) Souls, Women, Masters to/already come back, Global Unity.... etc.) (Text version)

“… I gave you a channelling years ago when Pope John Paul was alive. John Paul loved Mary, the mother. Had John Paul survived another 10 years, he would have done what the next Pope [The one after the current one, Benedict XVI] will do, and that is to bring women into the Church. This Pope you have now [Benedict XVI] won't be here long.* The next Pope will be the one who has to change the rules, should he survive. If he doesn't, it will be the one after that.

There is a large struggle within the Church, even right now, and great dissention, for it knows that it is not giving what humanity wants. The doctrine is not current to the puzzles of life. The answer will be to create a better balance between the feminine and masculine, and the new Pope, or the one after that, will try to allow women to be in the higher echelon of the Church structure to assist the priests.

It will be suggested to let women participate in services, doing things women did not do before. This graduates them within church law to an equality with priests, but doesn't actually let them become priests just yet. However, don't be surprised if this begins in another way, and instead gives priests the ability to marry. This will bring the feminine into the church in other ways. It will eventually happen and has to happen. If it does not, it will be the end of the Catholic Church, for humanity will not sustain a spiritual belief system that is out of balance with the love of God and also out of balance with intuitive Human awareness.  …”



“… The Last and Next Pope

[Note that this was channelled right after the death of John Paul II, and before the conclave of Catholic Cardinals had selected the next pope.]

"Kryon, we just lost what appears to be a great religious leader, Pope John Paul II. What are the ramifications of this?" My partner eluded earlier to the man called Karol who became the pope [spoken of earlier within the seminar]. He discussed what his goals were and what he did on this planet that really had nothing to do with his religion. Oh, perhaps the hat he wore did, and the places he walked did, and the ceremony around him did. But this was only given to facilitate what he could do.

But you see, like you, we knew Karol. He leaned into the wind of birth, too - just as you did. He was no different. And Spirit said to him, "You're going to have a chance to change the earth because the energy of this planet has the potential of being very different. There are potentials when you get to be a certain age where there'll be something called the Harmonic Convergence on the planet, and things will begin to change. You can fit into this as a world leader. Are you ready for that?" And he said yes.

No angel asked Karol if he wanted to be a Catholic, as he leaned into the wind of birth. That was simply the vehicle that got him into the position where he could change the planet the way he did. You couldn't have had the absence of the Armageddon that you've experienced without Karol. Did you know that [speaking of his direct involvement in the influence of the fall of communism]? So his belief system not only served him well, but it propelled him to a special place that was his alone to be in, and one that allowed him to touch billions all at once. And so it was that this great religious leader, who also knew intuitively what he was doing, had a love of humanity. His favorite thing was to be among common people - and he was, every time he could be. When he got to the position where he could make a difference, he did.

Now, there's something you don't know about Karol. The last decade of his life, he was very frustrated. Go look at the pictures. Go look at the pictures of the first 16 years. Then look at those from the last ten. The last ten, he was suffering - not just with his health - he was anguishing over a situation that none of you truly know about. For in his last ten years this man wanted to make some more changes while the time was ripe, but he knew he was too old.

Karol didn't have the energy to make the changes he really wanted to make, and those around him fought him to keep things the way they were. It was all very political, and someday this information may come out into the open, and you'll hear about those who influenced him in the last ten years and helped to keep things on an even keel. He was too old to make a difference and he knew it.

Karol was not of a consciousness to make some of the changes that many cried out for - about poverty and the role of women in his organization (that will come later). But Karol cried out in his heart for the children that were abused by the priests, and he wanted to do something about this and make a difference. He believed that his Savior wanted him to make a difference, but he couldn't do it. So what might look to you like inaction was instead the pope suffering, for he was not allowed to do what he wanted - due to his lack of energy and those around him who made certain he didn't.

"Kryon, here we sit with conclave of cardinals about to meet and select a new pope. What's the potential based upon the energy right now of the selection? What's going to happen?" I'll give you two potentials of what might take place in the next few days, because your future is always about free choice. There is no entity who can tell you about the future, since it's totally in the hands of the free-choice of humanity. However, based on the energy of the moment, here's what we see: (1) You're either going to have an interim, temporary pope for only a short amount of time (relative to the last one), who will lead to a radical pope; or (2) You're going to go right to the radical pope. Either way, you're going to eventually end up with a man who's going to do things to shake up the establishment.

Let me give you some of the potentials of what the radical pope may be involved in: This religion he leads on earth has doctrines that no longer "square up" with what humanity is seeing around itself. He absolutely has to address this issue, for the sophisticated Humans will leave the church otherwise. There will be those who may even call him "the evil pope" because he's going to go against tradition when he slowly starts a process that honors the Virgin Mary more than any pope ever has - therefore honoring women within the church, elevating them to higher positions... even to priests.

He will speak about family planning, and start processes that will slowly justify it in the eyes of God [this will take awhile], but it must come from the man who "sits in the chair" [ex cathedra] to change the doctrine of the whole organization. Because of this, he will also be in danger and will have to have constant protection.

Then he'll talk about what to do with priests who abuse children. Watch for this. Even if you receive the interim pope, he'll set the stage for the radical pope in this area. For this is in the energy aura of what we would call the potential future around this grand event. The earth is filled with free choice and it can go any direction, but I've just given you the potentials of what is here and now. ..."
