(Continued from Part 5, yesterday.)
Oil is Mother Earth’s lifeblood
We may not know it, but oil is vital to Mother Earth’s well-functioning. Our sources compare it to the planet’s lifeblood.
It forms an essential lubricant of the tectonic plates, Goldenlight’s sources tell us.
“The oil that is currently being extracted from Mother Earth/Gaia’s body is actually the essential lubrication that is needed to keep her tectonic plates moving easily and freely in her body. The removal of this essential part of her earthen body, and yes it is her body, has caused great harm to her and will STOP.” (1)
Another group of sources through Goldenlight repeat the assertion.
“We have many technologies which will guide you along on your higher dimensional path….beautiful healing technologies given to us by Source Creator and used in a loving manner for the highest good of all. Wonderful free-energy technologies will propel your world ‘into the stratosphere,’ so to speak, and reduce your dependence on oil, which is the lifeblood of Mother Earth Gaia.
“Removing this oil from her body is akin to removing the blood from your body. It drains her and is so unnecessary!” (2)
Matthew Ward makes the same claim:
“The root of this environmental destructiveness is the intention of a few minds steeped in greed to keep your world dependent upon petroleum, and to that end, they have suppressed the developments in free energy that would have eliminated their source of mammoth fortunes.
“The relentless pursuit of monetary wealth has withered their conscience. Thus there is no consideration given to the potential effects of desecrating the environment; and they don’t understand that Earth is a highly-evolved soul, a sentient being whose blood is the fluids within her planetary body.” (3)
He explains that we can help the Earth heal by moving away from these unbeneficial sources of power, towards beneficial ones.
“You can greatly aid Earth in her healing process by moving away from nuclear power and fossil fuels and advancing toward renewable and free-energy sources.” (4)
Reliance on coal, petroleum, and nuclear power will inevitably end, Saul says:
“With abundant free energy readily available wherever needed, coal mining and oil ‘harvesting’ and exploration will first be greatly reduced and then finally cease, as the industries that require that kind of energy become obsolescent.
“Cleaning up and repairing the damage that those basically barbaric industrial conglomerates have caused will be a major task in the next few years, and much, in your terms, technologically very advanced assistance will be provided to ensure that this is done cleanly and efficiently.” (5)
Keeping the essential function of petroleum in the back of our minds, let’s now reflect on the arrival of this technology to Earth and the end of our dependence on petroleum, coal, and nuclear power.

Free-energy people are still underground
What’s happening to bring about the sharing of this new and beneficial technology? Wes Annac’s sources tell us:
“Myriad individuals and organizations on your planet are coming to understand free energy and are working diligently to bring its technology to the world, and the first free-energy device you see, whether … small or big, will be the tip of the iceberg in regards to complete disclosure of this technology.
“Patents and production will swiftly follow, and we can potentially predict free energy technology being widely understood by the time we make open contact with your planet.” (1)
Free-energy devices will not come from only one source, SaLuSa says. They “will come from us and also many sources on Earth where they have already been developed.” (2)
However many among the inventors have kept their inventions hidden.
“Many such devices already exist but, like much that has been kept from you, have not been released and instead deliberately hidden.” (3)
Michael states that many inventors choose to remain underground:
Archangel Michael: A great [many] of the free-energy people are still slightly, can we say, underground, under cover.
Steve Beckow Aren’t [the cabal members] in containment, Lord?
AAM Not everybody who is wealthy from these enterprises is in containment. And do not even forget that not even a middle-level manager – we are not talking about brutality or murder, but we are talking about sabotage and the ability to throw a spanner in the works.
So there is some residual fear on the part of those that are working on free energy to completely go public. But they will be there shortly. (4)
Nevertheless, SaLuSa says, the truth must eventually come out.
“Do you see, Dear Ones, how eventually the truth must come out? … There are already calls for an alternative source of power, and our allies will be pushing for free-energy devices that are already available.” (5)
Matthew Ward sees the self-serving interests of those who’ve sequestered free-energy technology being exposed, freeing the technology to manifest.
“The ever-intensifying light … is exposing the self-serving interests that have long-suppressed your developments in free-energy sources and other technologies. Soon those will ‘come to light,’ and along with your space family’s advanced technologies, they will be used to cleanse and purify soil, water and air; and transform your methods of transportation, medical care, food production, construction, manufacturing and communication.” (6)
The galactics have the demise of the old technologies planned for. SaLuSa discusses that plan:
“What you are beginning to become aware of [are] the vast opportunities presented by the use of free energy. Naturally the Oil Industry fights against their introduction, but it is the way forward and progress cannot be stopped.
“In time none of the old polluting fuels will be used, and everyone will benefit from clean and efficient methods, that most importantly will include new means of transportation.
“For those presently employed in those industries we must tell you that your future will be secure. By that time everyone will have benefited from the new financial systems, and the re-distribution of wealth will ensure that the loss of jobs will not affect your position.” (7)
That’s the plan. All we need now is a Reval.
Unlike SaLuSa, Matthew Ward finds it difficult to give an estimate of when free-energy technology will be released.
“It is completely understandable that you would like to have ‘forecasts’ [of] when suppression of free-energy sources … will end. Those are some of the primary questions in your thoughts, which we see as clearly as we see your light that sparkles as brilliantly as a field of diamonds in the sunlight.
“If we could give estimated times for those and other developments of interest to many, we would do so joyfully. Earth’s energy field of potential is in such commotion, with the dark ones fighting bitterly in desperate last stands, that it would be folly to offer even ‘best guesses.’ So we tell you what we DO know with absolute certainty – your patience and steadfastness in the light will be rewarded beyond your grandest imagining.” (8)
In summary, inventing and developing free-energy technology has proven risky in the past. Consequently, many people with workable devices have kept them hidden. However, self-serving interests are being exposed, hastening the day when the truth of free energy can become known. After the introduction of free energy,i t’s anticipated that abundance programs will ensure the prosperity of workers laid off as a result.
Moreover, the new technology will restore Mother Earth in a way that we might not suspect.

(Continued from Part 3, yesterday.)
Free-energy devices have been around since Tesla’s day. So what’s the problem?
The problem is that the military and elites have sequestered them for their own use and advantage. Most of the public have never heard of free energy.
These devices, the Pleiadian High Council tells us, “have been around since, at the very most recent, your 1930s and in many cultures [such as Atlantis] before your current society.” (1) They tell us what has transpired:
“The revolutionary inventions of many inventors were again suppressed for ‘national security’ reasons and in many cases funneled into the various military industrial complex projects as well as used and enjoyed by the elites of your world and only the elites of your world.
“The very existence of such things has been kept secret while being used by the top elite classes for their own gain, and you have been kept on ancient ways to produce your own commodities and needs that such elite souls can make money off of while themselves using the better alternatives.” (2)
We’ve been exploited and kept in the dark. “The dark Ones,” SaLuSa informs us, “have [had] no intention of sharing them with you.” (3)
“The Human Race has been exploited and used for the benefit of the few, and they have deliberately denied you the progress that would have avoided the calamity and chaos you are experiencing now.
“But for the Illuminati and their minions you would not be at the mercy of the Oil Industries and free energy in its many forms would have seen exceptional progress. The hidden discoveries would have brought you into the 21st Century some time ago and avoided the collapse of your society that you are now experiencing.” (4)
On another occasion, he informed us that:
“Through deliberate policy [free-energy devices] have been held back by the Illuminati, to protect their own investment in oil and the utilities. …
“You should have been able to advance your standard of living much more than it is now. Every civilization is entitled to benefit from new discoveries, that are not given simply to be enjoyed by the privileged few, or your armed forces. The ideas for such devices that already exist were intended for the good of all, and made available to you for your independence and self-sufficiency.” (5)
According to the Pleiadians and Arcturians, the cabal relied on national security as a pretext for sequestering them.
“But the truth is that they’ve worked actively to keep your populace held back from space travel and understanding that even close to your Earth, there are star systems with planets boasting brimming advanced societies who are actively fixated on the evolution your Earth is experiencing.” (6)
Disclosure will end this hiding of technology, the Pleiadian High Council says.
“When the beginning disclosures and revelations begin to come to the fore as they truly are to so very soon, you will hear about the inventions in depth and you will be shown these inventions and how they pair with your consciousness to produce that which you need.” (7)
The Pleiadians and Arcturians inform us that “your cabal is finding themselves less able … to stop individuals in your collective from introducing free-energy-based technology to your world formally.” (8)
“The lost years will be made up to you in next to no time,” SaLuSa adds. “The Light is bringing back balance, and once the power and influence of the dark forces is overcome you shall see great changes come in quick succession.” (9)
In the end, “their actions will serve no purpose,” he explains, “as no one group of individuals is allowed to evolve at the expense of another.” (10)
How have those who try to develop free-energy technology reacted to the threats made against them?

Awakening to the NOW
The Galactics Through Suzanne Lie, Dec. 19, 2019
(Note to readers: Hi, Sue here. I have been channeling private readings to many wonderful people, so I have not written much on the Blog. However, I am back to my usual habit of writing a new Blog every couple of days, which I also enjoy.)
We are the members of your Galactic Family, who have come into your NOW to remind you that YOU are special. Yes, we mean YOU, the one who reads, and/or shares of this message with others.
We have come here into your a higher frequency of Self that directs you to remind yourself that NOW is the week, the day, and/or the minute in which YOU can begin the process of awakening to the NOW.
“What is the NOW?” we hear you say. Our answer is that the NOW is when you have released all excuses and reasons that make it “impossible” to answer the “Inner Call,” which seems to become louder and louder the more you try to ignore it OR when whenever you decide to hear it.
“After all, why would anyone want to ignore their chance to awaken to the NOW?” we hear you say. Sadly, our answer is often because too many grounded ones have completely forgotten their true Galactic Heritage.
Just as it would be challenging to remember a past incarnation in which you were/are a member of a Starship, and your duty was/is to remind the humans on Earth to remember their Higher Dimensional Galactic SELF, it is your duty and joy now, to remind the other humans with whom your share your third dimensional reality, that WE are all ONE!
Unfortunately, some of our brave warriors to take an earth vessel on Gaia may have become lost in the illusions of the third dimensional frequencies of Gaia’s Earth. Therefore, these ones may have forgotten the very Mission that thy chose to fulfill on Gaia’s Earth.
Therefore, we have come to you within this NOW to remind you that, even if you cannot remember your fifth dimensional life on your Starship, you can still visit that reality as often as you like while your 3D earth vessel is sleeping.
In fact, while your human self is sleeping, your Multidimensional SELF is coming by to pick you up and take you for a visit to your Star Ship. Of course, it is difficult for your to stay awake enough to remember your “dreams/higher visits” to your higher dimensional reality.
However, we see that more and more of you are beginning to remember some of your nightly (or during deep meditation) experiences of Awakening to the NOW of the ONE. Of course, you come from your Starships, or your higher dimensional realities, but your human self has likely forgotten that detail.
In fact, your human self will likely forget your entire night time, sleeping adventure. Fortunately, there is a “feeling” that the “awakening ones” have as they slowly, or quickly, begin to “remember” that which they had spent most of their current incarnation forgetting.
We want you to know that the “forgetting” is important so that you can maintain confidence in the 3D reality which you human self may perceive as the “only reality.” However, there is always a portal, through which you can travel to experience, and/or remember, that there are higher and higher dimensions of reality.
And, as the picture above shows, there is always a “Greeter” to meet you at the threshold into the higher frequencies of Earth’s reality. In fact, more and more members of Gaia’s humanity are beginning to remember dreams and/or meditations in which you experience a reality in which there is a higher frequency than your third, or fourth, dimensional perceptions.
At first, you may just remember “something,” but gradually, that same “something” shows up in different dreams, or different memories, or different doodles that you draw when you are “just relaxing.”
In fact, it is when you are sleeping or relaxing that you are most likely to remember that YOU are much, more that your third dimensional self can remember. It is for this reason that more and more humans are beginning to remember their dreams, and “interesting visions,” that they do not understand, but simultaneously vaguely, or even clearly, remember.
“Wow, that was a cool dream,” or “This may seem weird, but it feels like you have seen, heard, and/or recognized that being on a Starship and/or an experience that you woke up remembering. If you “woke up” and remembered “something,” does that make it real? Or does that mean that it was just a dream?
In fact, how different is a dream from your imagination? If you “just imagined” that there was a portal that you seemed to go through, how do you know if it was not “just a dream” or a “real inter-dimensional experience,” that you were somehow able to remember?
Your “everyday self” may ask, “Was that a Starship I just saw, or was it something else, and I just thought I saw a Starship? Perhaps, the important part may be that you were happy to think of “what ever it was” as a Starship, and you were happy, and fearless when you were able to experience what you identified as a Starship.
You may wonder if the Galactics are “trying out the humans” to see if they are NOW ready to be happy to see a Starship, and do NOT reach for their weapons, like they would have in the past. Does this mean that humans are becoming more open minded and/or more fifth dimensional?
Of course, you would like to have the answer be Yes-Yes!! In fact, you may have seen what looked like a Starship, usually cloaked in what appeared to be a cloud, on several different occasions. But, how can one discern between what they want to see and what they do see?
You may have thought that in order to know that you are really seeing a Starship, as opposed to believing that you are only thinking of seeing Starship, and therefore, believed it was a Starship because you wanted it to be a Starship!
We, your Galactic Family, say YES, YES, YES, please find your own inner courage so that you can begin to and/or expand your knowing that YOU are a Multidimensional Being, who is living on the Multidimensional Planet of Earth.
“Did this just happen?” you may ask.
Our answer is that once your consciousness can expand enough to perceive, and believe, that there is a fifth dimensional frequency of reality on which your own Higher Dimensional SELF presides, and from which you receive the fifth dimensional information that you are becoming more and more ready to believe and to LIVE!!
What does it mean to LIVE in the fifth dimension?
Are YOU curious about that question?
Do you feel that you have found the answers to some of the questions which you have asked your own Higher SELF?
If that answer is YES, do you share you experiences with others?
If the answer is now, are you curious to find out about these “possible experiences?”
There are many questions to be asked within this NOW of Planetary Transition into a higher frequency of resonance. Yes, “The darkest night is just before dawn!” Therefore, you will need to go inside your own consciousness and ponder the answers to your questions with your own Higher Dimensional Frequency of SELF!
Yes, YES! You ALL have Higher Dimensional Frequencies of your Multidimensional SELF. In fact it is because you are a Multidimensional Being that you are able to think, feel, question, and honer that which you receive from the higher dimensions of Gaia’s planetary SELF.
Also, those of you who think of Gaia as a living being, are well aware that She is suffering every day at the hand of selfish, materialistic, and lower dimensional humans who can only thing about what they want for their self.
Therefore, we invite all of our Awakened Ones to visit us, your Higher Dimensional Galactic Family, to come into your meditations, your dreams, your questions, and your remembrances of your SELF!
Are YOU ready NOW to walk through that Interdimensional Portal to the NOW of the ONE?
When you are ready, we, the members of your Galactic Family will be there to embarrass you with-
Unconditional Love and Fifth dimensional LIGHT!
If any of you who are currently wearing a third dimensional form, wish to meet up personally, just call us with your Loving Heart and KNOW that you will Share your LIGHT
Blessings from the Arcturians

Let me complement my articles on dimensionality (1) with comments from St. Germaine on the ability of the masters to visit all dimensions.
“St. Germaine on Allowing Love to Transform Us,” channeled by Linda Dillon, January 16, 2014, at http://goldenageofgaia.com/2014/01/st-germaine-on-allowing-love-to-transform-us/.
Steve Beckow: Can I begin the program by asking you, please … to straighten me and perhaps some of our listeners out on the subject of the ascended masters. I once assumed that the ascended masters were all Fifth-Dimensional beings, but more and more I get the impression that they reside in dimensions much higher than the fifth.
Can you correct my initial impression, please, and give us an idea of what dimensions you, the Masters Kuthumi, El Morya, Djwhal Khul and the others actually reside in?
St. Germaine: We can live wherever we want. How does that fit? [Laughs]
We do not know [where] the belief that we are simply in the Fifth Dimension … has arisen from. But it does not really matter, does it?
Because as you have advanced, as you have begun your Ascension process, as you have begun to more fully anchor in the fifth dimension, with Gaia, you have begun to look around, and you have said, “Well, where is everybody?” Because you expected and anticipated a joyous reunion.
But do not fear, dear hearts. We are there, and we will be there to welcome you fully and completely. But do we reside strictly, or singularly, in the Fifth Dimension? The answer is no.
If you wanted to place us anywhere, you could place us in the Seventh or the Eleventh dimensions. The Eleventh is the place of mastery, and the Seventh, of course, is the place of love. And there are peculiarities, preferences, for each master depending upon their current undertaking and of course their overall mission and purpose.
So, might I say, for example, the undertaking and the mission of Jesus Sananda is about love, and of course the anchoring of the Christ consciousness. And so where you would be most likely to encounter Jesus Sananda, Yeshua, or his other emanations would in fact be in the Seventh Dimension.
So think of it in this way: Our home port, our island, our anchoring spot, our gathering spot would tend to be the Eleventh Dimension, the dimension of mastery.
But we are free and able to enter into all of the dimensions, including the Twelfth, because that is within our capabilities, our purview. So it is where we primarily anchor, but we move.
I am glad you have asked this question because it serves a multitude of purposes. You are tending to think of dimensionality as fixed, as stable, as not having penetrable walls.
Now, you may think of this as various rooms in the castle of Gaia, but you are free to move from room to room. You’re also free to ask those rooms and the elements, the qualities, the diversity of those rooms to come to you as well. And for everybody in those rooms — yes, including myself — to come to you and to revisit, to partake, to hug, to help, to assist, to share.
So it is not a matter of being shackled into one reality or dimension. What has happened, in the old Third — and you are seeing this more and more clearly — is that these false grids, these cement walls, thicker than the Great Wall of China, were erected and you were made to believe that you could only be there.
In many ways you have been held prisoner by the collective illusions and beliefs. But those walls are coming down. They are but vapors, truly. And each of you, my sweet friends, my family, are seeing and feeling, experiencing elements of the Fourth, of the Fifth, of the Sixth, of the Seventh.
So you are beginning to sense, and you are beginning to flow and to move like we do. So if, for example, you send me an invitation — as you have this day, and in this moment — for me to visit you in what we would call the old Third, which simply means you are having a physical experience of my presence, of my voice, of my energy field, I would hope, we can do that, and we will ground this so that you will have greater and greater experience of dimensionality and being transdimensional beings.

Earthbound Star Soul had a reading with Linda Dillon five days before I did so his account of the meetings of the delegations came earlier than mine. (1)
At that point there had been 43 delegation meetings. Two were repeat meetings….
Zalishia of the Pleiades in a personal reading with EBSS (Earthbound Star Soul) through Linda Dillon, Nov. 21, 2019.)
Earthbound Star Soul: The Delegations that are taking place, can you give us an idea of how many meetings between Star People and Earth People have occurred around the planet… 5, 10 15, 20, 50, 100?
Z: No, there have been about 43.
Z: Yes, 43, some of them have been very small, depending on shall we say the local and some of them have been significant gatherings of individuals that are primarily by interest and field if you can think of it that way. So there are a number of variations.
But things are going forth, and those who have been selected and engaged in these meetings and there are only two that have been to second meetings. But those who have been engaged or who have been recruited for these meetings are adhering very closely with our understanding because they have been informed of the dangers of speaking as of yet, of these gatherings.
EBSS: Any time line on when our meeting might be?
Z: It is anticipated prior to the year end or at the very beginning of the new year.
EBSS: There is a mountain road that might be closed due to winter snow, but there is another mountain road nearby that has a beautiful overlook.
Z: Yes, but there are many, many beautiful settings for the meeting, but that would be a perfect place.
EBSS: Our meeting I am guessing will be just the three of us.
Z: Correct. It is where we start, not where we finish.
EBSS: On November 11th, in the late afternoon, I had been home the whole day. I got in my car to go up the road to a mini mart, and inside the car it had the scent of deep space.
Z: You had thought that you were home all day.
EBSS: Meetings up on the Neptune…
Z: Yes, that is correct.
Z: You have been engaged in many, many meetings on board ship, and even in the oversight or reports back of how the meetings with the Delegations are going.
EBSS: Can you identify some of the countries where these meeting have already taken place?
Z: They are all over the planet.
EBSS: Well there have been 43 meetings and there are what, 150 or 170 countries.
Z: Think of it more in terms of continents, so we will not even go that far. But no, they are taking place in every continent and islands all over the planet.
EBSS: Have there been any in the United States already?
EBSS: As I said to a couple of people recently, after showing them the pictures in the “UFO… Contact From The Pleiades” book, that there has already been a few handful of meetings between Star People and some people living here on Earth. But they do not have permission to make their pictures and video public yet.
Z: That is correct.
EBSS: I said to them that there will be someone in the U.S. who has pictures and video who will have permission to make them public.
Z: That is correct. It is a timing factor, and part of this, is the insurance and assurance that those who are in positions, particularly of weaponry, nuclear weaponry and biological weaponry, are not in a position to… act.
EBSS: My sense is, from the meetings “upstairs,” that until the new president is inaugurated, the people in countries around the world will not make their pictures and video public.
Z: That is correct.
EBSS: January of 2021?
Z: In all likelihood, it will be earlier, but… certainly, if the situation, shall we put it that way, needs to be stabilized, solidified, prior to any mass disclosure … and… the danger sweet one, let us be very clear, as you well know, the danger is not to us, the danger is to the Human Beings, who are in great courage and valor, stepping forward to anchor the new reality.
EBSS: Let’s make things happen.
Z: We are, and so are you.
