The Ascent and Descent – Suffering as a Catalyst for Awakening

The Ascent and Descent – Suffering as a Catalyst for Awakening – Part 1

Veil of Reality

Everyone is suffering to varying degrees. Do we have to suffer and what is the way out? In this episode, we explore the role of suffering in light of the process of awakening, its teaching function, and how to catalyze suffering into deeper healing. We look at the process of the ascent and descent from a soul evolutionary perspective, the importance of meditation and embodiment, how to transmute pain and negative emotions, how pathology has become normalized in official culture/modern society, and many other topics (Part 1).

The Patriot, Citizen Journalist and Light Worker Tool Bag

by James Gilliland

There are some energy waves coming in that are driving the dark hearts rather mad. They are pulling out all the stops invoking and sending everything from demons to creatures through ritual to maintain their diminishing control. When you are exposing and going up against the tyrants realize many are no longer human. This is why they can do so many inhumane things much of which the average human cannot even contemplate. You are not just working against some very evil people you are up against unseen negative influences as well. It is not uncommon for the dark hearts to use spells and hexes against light workers.  The Satanic/Luciferian rituals are real, it is an unthinkable abomination what they are doing to children. It is the ultimate slap in the face to Creator. The sex and child trafficking are also real along with harvesting organs and blood. “Adrenochrome”. It has become epidemic within almost all institutions and industries. It is time to wake up, end the denial and take back your planet. 

Just as these fallen humans and other unseen negative entities are real so are the positive seen and unseen entities in greater numbers and powers. We can be a victim or stand tall in our own divinity. The positive higher vibrational beings are here to liberate, empower and awaken Humanity and the Earth in a plan that goes all the way back to Creator. Some have incarnated from these higher planes, dimensions and civilizations, some are raising their frequencies merging with their higher dimensional selves. Some are being initiated, having visions dreams of beautiful loving beings, receiving guidance through these tumultuous times. 

On the other side of the coin some are having nightmares, being psychically attacked put in hellish situations, having lovers, friends and family turn on them, feeling totally alienated. Hopefully, this newsletter will assist in understanding, depersonalizing these events and help with tools to get us through these trying times. The prophecy of ‘End Time Madness’ explains these times. 

During the awakening many don’t even know why they are doing what they are doing, it just feels right and the old ways no longer interest them. This is all part of the process. We have said many times in the past the closer you get to nirvana the more the demons rear their ugly heads. If you are not being challenged, you’re not a challenge. In other words, you’re not a threat. The challenge comes with the work and if you are truly doing the work you will be challenged. Another way of looking at this the more on target you are, the more you become a target.  The more consciousness and energy available to you the bigger the threat to the unconscious and their overlords. Rather than being a victim wear it as a badge. You may not be doing something wrong, you may be doing something right.

The reason for writing this article is to help depersonalize what is happening and bring some tools to bear that will clear these situations. The first and foremost priority is to make your own personal connection to God/Creator/Great spirit. We all have guides some call watch Angels, Masters, Saints and Sages to help us while on Earth. Many incarnated from Spiritually and Technologically Advanced civilizations, often from higher dimensions. This will all fall under the category of HELP. You are not alone, you have never been alone other than what you created in your own mind, what you believe in. “There are no divisions in God, there are many divisions in social consciousness; contemplate the word Omnipresence.” 

You have and have always had the power within you. You just did not have the tool bag. The tool bag has been hidden from you for a reason. What if you fully realized there is no separation in Omnipresence? What if you realized Love is the ultimate power in the Multiverse, the manifesting force behind creation? What if you realized you could channel that love through the heart into every situation? What if you stepped out of reactionary mind, the perpetuated fear, guilt, unworthiness, all external false needs. What if you transcended the first three chakras survival, sex and power through which, the controllers and enslavers manipulate you? What if you centered into the heart, the present moment allowing the ultimate power love move through you in creationary mind? What if you pulled your energies from the 7th, 6th, and 5thchakras and channeled them through the heart? What if you asked for the higher dimensions to balance out all your chakras or energy centers? Imagine healing the wounds, traumas and wrong conclusions from past experiences mostly held in the first three chakras which confuse and block the real power, owning your divinity?

It was once said there are two forces, love and lack of love. There is connection to Creator and lack of connection. There is Universal Law and the straying away from Universal Law. There is Unity Consciousness, balance and the perpetuated be lie f in separation and imbalance. These are the dynamics playing out in today’s world. As higher consciousness and energy continues to rise the masks come down, the imbalances are revealed along with the actions outside of Universal Law. Karma or action/reaction accelerates in linear time and the lessons become exponentially harder. Those who have led a life of service, loving humanity and nature will fare very well. Those who have led a life of service to self, dishonoring and disrespecting humanity and nature will not. It’s not rocket science. It’s never too late to have a happy childhood and be in service to humanity and nature. Growing up to meet the demands of an ungodly social consciousness is often the problem. 

It seems we have strayed off course but these understandings are necessary. Now for the tool bag. There is a saying know your enemy, their tactics, how they interfere in your life and the lives of others. There is a war in consciousness, a war against freedom, a war between good and evil. The polarities are real, we cannot live in denial which is not in the tool bag.

There are enemies seen and unseen. There are those who desire to enslave, perpetuate division, keep you ignorant, poor and sick using deception, fear, guilt “shaming”, and unworthiness. They perpetuate external gods, a Creator separate from Creation a be lie f that you are separate from Creator and Creation. They are self-serving, their lust for power and wealth is insatiable. They are the war and disease profiteers, many have lost all humanness. As we said earlier, the reason there is so much inhumanity is because they are not human. Did you know you cannot commit suicide without multiple unseen negative influences. The desire to live and survival is too strong. Did you know many of your thoughts and emotions are not your own? Did you know many of the thoughts and emotions of others are not their own? Did you know people can be influenced both positively and negatively by seen and unseen influences? The consciousness of others, the environment, the psychometrized thoughts and emotions in stone and metal, the land, the presence of positive and negative entities all play a part in ours and others mental well being. Many illnesses, accidents, the loss of energy are a direct result of psychic attacks.  Self-Mastery is being aware of and control of the consciousness and energy affecting you and others no matter what the source. It is the ability to observe, use your inner sensitivity and feelings to clear. If you don’t like what you are feeling do a healing. Clearings are mandatory if you are going to take on the dark hearts seen and unseen.

We cannot stress the importance of clearings. If you are in law enforcement or the military you carry a gun for protection. Without clearing, it is like walking naked into battle against a fully armed opponent. An opponent that often knows you better than you know yourself. They will use your fears, wounds, traumas and wrong conclusions from past experiences against you. Generate thought forms, false scenarios, divide lovers, family, and friends. As we said before they can drain your energy, make you sick, even create accidents. They are masters at this. Removing them is a must to restore health, well-being, peace and unity. Aligning with higher consciousness and energy, higher dimensional beings, removing any hooks or patterns, wounds, traumas etc. within self is the answer. This removes the chinks in your armor. Personal responsibility is also necessary. It is up to us to make our own personal God/Creator/Great Spirit connection expand in awareness and consciousness, and become proficient in healing. Help has always been available; it is up to us to initiate it. That being said, here is the process to clear and heal unseen negative influences.

What is Inner Work? / TCM #53

What is Inner Work? | TCM #53 (Part 1)

Veil of Reality – Laura Matsue and Bernard Guenther

Engaging in deeper inner work is crucial in this day and age. As more and more people are waking up to the corruption and pathology in the world, their suppressed emotions, trauma, and shadow material is also surfacing. This type of suffering can serve as a great catalyst to engage in the Great Work. However, many people don’t know where to start when it comes to inner work or understand exactly what inner work entails.

In this podcast, Laura and Bernhard explore this idea of “inner work” from their perspective. They talk about the foundation of self-observation, self-remembering, the difference between personality and essence, the importance of dis-identification and embodiment, and give practical tools and advice and how to use these times to look within.

In the second hour, they go deeper into how to engage in self-work, uncovering trauma, how it relates to the Matrix trauma installment program, the anti-divine forces from an occult perspective working through far-leftist Marxist/communist/socialist ideologies, the theory of holes [disconnection from essence] and how it relates to our early childhood.

Furthermore, they discuss the true meaning of renunciation of desires, the tantric perspective, evolutionary astrology and soul lessons, the importance of a holistic integral approach to self-work, how we cannot do self-work just by ourselves, the importance of community and group work, and more.

St. Germain – At the Signing of the Declaration of Independence in 1776


“Gibbet?  They may stretch our necks on all the gibbets in the land – they may turn every rock into a scaffold – every tree into gallows, every home into a grave, and yet the words on that Parchment can never die!

“They may pour our blood on a thousand scaffolds, and yet from every drop that dyes the axe, or drips on the sawdust of the block, a new martyr to Freedom will spring into birth!

“The British King may blot out the Stars of God from His sky, but he cannot blot out His words written on the Parchment there!  The works of God may perish – His Word, never!

“These words will go forth to the world when our bones are dust.  To the slave in the mines, they will speak – hope – to the mechanic in his workshop – freedom – to the coward – kings these words will speak, but not in tones of flattery.  No, no!  They will speak like the flaming syllables on Belshazzar’s wall –



“Yes, that Parchment will speak to the Kings in a language sad and terrible as the trump of the Archangel.  You have trampled on mankind long enough.  At last the voice of human woe has pierced the ear of God, and called His Judgment down!  You have waded on to thrones over seas of blood – you have trampled on to power over the necks of millions – you have turned the poor man’s sweat and blood into robes for your delicate forms, into crowns for your anointed brows.  Now Kings – now purpled Hangmen of the world – for you come the days of axes and gibbets and scaffolds – for you the wrath of man – for you the lightnings of God! –

“Look!  How the light of your palaces on fire flashes up into the midnight sky!

“Now Purpled Hangmen of the world – turn and beg for mercy!

“Where will you find it?

“Not from God, for you have blasphemed His laws!

“Not from the People, for you stand baptized in their blood!

“Here you turn, and lo!  a gibbet!

“There – and a scaffold looks you in the face.

“All around you – death – and nowhere pity!

“Now executioners of the human race, kneel down, yes, kneel down upon the sawdust of the scaffold – lay your perfumed heads upon the block – bless the axe as it falls – the axe that you sharpened for the poor man’s neck!

“Such is the message of that Declaration to Man, to the Kings of the world!  And shall we falter now?  And shall we start back appalled when our feet press the very threshold of Freedom? Do I see quailing faces around me, when our wives have been butchered – when the hearthstones of our land are red with the blood of little children?

“What are these shrinking hearts and faltering voices here, when the very Dead of our battlefields arise, and call upon us to sign that Parchment, or be accursed forever?

“Sign!  if the next moment the gibbet’s rope is round your neck!  Sign!  if the next moment this hall rings with the echo of the falling axe!  Sign!  By all your hopes in life or death, as husbands – as fathers – as men – sign your names to the Parchment or be accursed forever!

“Sign – and not only for yourselves, but for all ages.  For that Parchment will be the Text – book of Freedom – the Bible of the Rights of Man forever!

“Sign – for that declaration will go forth to American hearts forever, and speak to those hearts like the voice of God!  And its work will not be done, until throughout this wide Continent not a single inch of ground owns the sway of a British King!

“Nay, do not start and whisper with surprise!  It is a truth, your own hearts witness it, God proclaims it. – This Continent is the property of a free people, and their property alone. [17-second applause] God, I say, proclaims it!

“Look at this strange history of a band of exiles and outcasts, suddenly transformed into a people – look at this wonderful Exodus of the oppressed of the Old World into the New, where they came, weak in arms but mighty in Godlike faith – nay, look at this history of your Bunker Hill – your Lexington – where a band of plain farmers mocked and trampled down the panoply of British arms, and then tell me, if you can, that God has not given America to the free?

“It is not given to our poor human intellect to climb the skies, to pierce the councils of the Almighty One.  But methinks I stand among the awful clouds which veil the brightness of Jehovah’s throne.  Methinks I see the Recording Angel – pale as an angel is pale, weeping as an angel can weep – come trembling up to that Throne, and speak his dread message –

“Father!  The old world is baptized in blood!  Father, it is drenched with the blood of millions, butchered in war, in persecution, in slow and grinding oppression! Father – look, with one glance of Thine Eternal eye, look over Europe, Asia, Africa, and behold evermore, that terrible sight, man trodden down beneath the oppressor’s feet – nations lost in blood – Murder and Superstition walking hand in hand over the graves of their victims, and not a single voice to whisper, ‘Hope to Man’!

“He stands there, the Angel, his hands trembling with the black record of human guilt.  But hark!  The voice of Jehovah speaks out from the awful cloud – ‘Let there be light again.  Let there be a New World.  Tell my people – the poor – the trodden down millions, to go out from the Old World.  Tell them to go out from wrong, oppression and blood – tell them to go out from this Old World – to build my altar in the New’!

“As God lives, my friends, I believe that to be his voice!  Yes, were my soul trembling on the wing for Eternity, were this hand freezing in death, were this voice choking with the last struggle, I would still, with the last impulse of that soul, with the last wave of that hand, with the last gasp of that voice, implore you to remember this truth – God has given America to the free!

“Yes, as I sank down into the gloomy shadows of the grave, with my last gasp, I would beg you to sign that Parchment, in the name of the God, who made the Saviour who redeemed you – in the name of the millions whose very breath is now hushed in intense expectation, as they look up to you for the awful words – `You are free’!”

This speech came from Ascended Master Saint Germain at the signing of the Declaration of Independence.

The Sword of Freedom’s Flame

Latest From ECETI: Demons Rearing Their Ugly Heads

Demons Rearing Their Ugly Heads

It is a very ancient saying, “The closer you get to nirvana or enlightenment the more the demons rear their ugly heads. Just as we are playing whack a mole with the global elite and the deep state closing down their DUMBs, deep underground military bases used in drug, child trafficking and a haven for negative ETs. The darker unseen negative influences are playing whack a mole with those awakening, light workers and white hats. With many defending against and removing these entities is way above their pay grade. There has been serious backlash. 

First you have to be aware of them, second one needs the tools to shield and remove them. Third and most important these are power tools, you have to plug them in. There are different tools for different jobs, sometimes you have to pull out the big wrenches. A 17 foot tall Sirian 7D Lion being usually does the trick. If you have not befriended these beings best to use one of the known Masters. It has come to our attention lately that many in the awakening and healing field are experiencing some very heavy attacks. Lots of illness, accidents, loss of energy, doubt, becoming ungrounded and overrun by baser emotions. These entities are coming through friends, family and lovers causing division, disruption and hijacking one’s soul purpose or mission. This can also be referred to as end time madness. 

The cleanup of these darker forces in 3d and 4d has unleashed some real demons, reptilians, negative greys, astral beings etc. We need to create sacred space, stay centered, learn to clear unseen negative entities for ourselves, family and friends. Especially the light workers on the front lines. This includes the military involved in these cleanups and rescues. One can only imagine what they have seen and how it is impacting them.

We can call on known Masters, Saints and Sages. The Spiritually and Technologically Advanced Off-Worlders many of whom have dealt with this before; it’s not their first rodeo. The planetary liberation is in full swing. Let’s all do our part. Below is the clearing prayer and technique we use. Clear yourself, your family and friends. Clear the light workers, those on the front lines. Clear the citizen journalists, the white hats, everyone fighting for freedom. We all have the ability to channel the ultimate power of God, Creator, Great Spirit into these situations. If you have a soul, it is your birthright. Time to stand tall in your own divinity.

Original Lord’s Prayer – Aramaic Words of Jesus

O Birther! Father-Mother of the Cosmos, you create all that moves in light.

Unite our “I can” to yours, so that we walk as kings and queens with every creature.

Grant what we need each day in bread and insight.

Forgive our hidden past, the secret shames, as we consistently forgive what others hide.

Deceived neither by the outer nor the inner — free us to walk your path with joy.

From you is born all ruling will, the power and life to do, the song that beautifies all from age to age it renews.

Translation is by Neil Douglas-Klotz, PH.D


​Healing is a must for all those who desire to operate in other realms of consciousness. You must have self authority and maintain control.  If you are experiencing negative vibrations, they are either thought forms, limiting mental concepts, psychic bonds or discarnate entities (lost souls) in need of healing. They are bound to the earth vibration due to lower vibration attitudes and emotions.  Some are coercive and desire to manipulate and control. Love heals.  Casting out only sends them to another place, another person. In all healing, remember that God is love. It is the power of love that heals and lifts.
