Matthew Ward: Mixed Signals
With loving greetings from all souls at this station, this is Matthew. Activity in Earth’s energy field of potential is more tumultuous than at any other period in the planet’s history, and this is understandable. Never before has the civilization set about to transform their world.
The ages-old systems that let the few control the masses are being uprooted to make way for the new systems that serve the best interests of all life forms on the planet. As the process continues to veer this way and that in its steady move onward, you are well prepared to surmount any obstacles you may encounter along the way.
Of the millions of souls that volunteered to help Earth’s peoples manage this undertaking, which is universally unprecedented in scope and speed, only the strongest, most experienced were chosen. You are among them.
To all who have asked when upheaval will end in their respective countries, we can only say that we don’t know. Not only is nothing clear enough in the field to offer a “best guess,” but what is happening in this moment will change in the next as the energy of billions of new thoughts, feelings and actions is registered. And, there is no way to determine with a degree of accuracy some point in linear time because the actuality is, “time” is energy planes, not dates on your calendar.
It is logical that resolution of conflict and establishment of order will come sooner in countries that are basically stable, but since energy cannot be confined to national borders, betterment anywhere accordingly affects situations everywhere. While this will not be evident soon in nations in the most upheaval, on up the road it will be.
Now we shall address your questions about the mixed signals given by the multitude of sources reporting on the coronavirus. The continuous bombardment of information about this disease is bound to have inconsistencies—outdated or incorrect reports of numbers of positive, negative and inconclusive test results; the same about the numbers of deaths; and fear-laden speculation about what may be ahead.
With innumerable inner city, in-country and international travelers, a contagious disease naturally follows, thus it was not unexpected that the virus would spread far beyond China. Yet, more damaging to the society than this illness are the fear being generated about it and the finger-pointing at Chinese people wherever they are living.
Yes, it can be said that fear is “amplified by extreme measures” such as canceling major and local events and airline flights, closing schools, mass quarantining, and testing everyone who may have been exposed to individuals who later are diagnosed with the virus. Those precautions are sensible to curtail the spread of the disease to the extent possible and should allay anxiety, not add to it.
It is helpful that healthcare professionals are emphasizing there is no reason for panic. They explain the simple measures that help prevent getting the disease, whose symptoms are generally mild; that people who have health issues are the most susceptible; and compared to the numbers that have contracted the virus, the number of deaths is very low.
By no means are we downplaying, much less overlooking, the abundant emotions involved by asking this: Where is similar concern about the many, many thousands of deaths every day due to starvation, warring, domestic and random violence, vehicle crashes, suicide or chronic diseases due to substandard living conditions?
From our vantage point, it appears that the coronavirus’s disruptions of scheduled activities, travel, local and international commerce, and stock markets may be considered by the populace as significant as health concerns.
And yes, what we stated in last month’s message holds true: The coronavirus and all attendant publicity will fizzle out, and, like all other activities devised by the dark ones, diseases they design and let loose will come to an end.
Often we have urged you to send love-light to the dark ones because of all members of our universal family, they are most desperately in need of it. They cause terrible conditions worldwide because they are devoid of that energy except for the spark that is their life force.
Some of you have asked if there is a way to send only the light aspect of love-light to individuals who do abhorrent things. No, dear ones, there isn’t—love and light cannot be divided into two compartments. While you could say that light is the makeup of the soul and love is a capacity of the soul, those cannot be separated any more than the soul can be separated from God and Creator.
Many years ago when my mother was having difficulty sending light to individuals who cause great suffering to others, this is what I told her:
Mother, you would turn on a flashlight to guide someone out of the darkness of uncertainty and anxiety onto a path where they are confident and secure, wouldn’t you? Those souls have lost their way and are fearful and foundering. Do not think of them as their deeds, but rather what you want for the world! Think of kindness, helpfulness and justness and sharing, think about the world’s people living in harmony, peacefulness and love and send those thoughts to those souls in darkness.
Sending love-light to all of Earth reaches every life on the planet. It is this most powerful force in the cosmos that brings peacefulness and cooperation among the peoples and inspires living harmoniously with all of Nature.
Also we have been asked how to send light to persons dear to you. You need only think of them with caring and love. There is no confusion whatsoever about whom you mean—your thoughts and feelings about them act like a specific postal or email address and go directly to those whom you want to reach.
This is a good place to say that prayer is not properly understood. Indeed, prayer is special thoughts about a loved one as well as religious recitations and blessings at mealtime, but it is much, much more. Prayer is your every thought, feeling, intention and deed—your life is a continuous prayer. You have the saying, Be careful what you pray for, you may get it. Yes! The physics of the universe, the law of attraction, is in constant operation.
Even when your thoughts and feelings are positive, the result may not be what you want. Let us say you pray for the recovery of a beloved person who is seriously ill. Soul contracts take precedence over prayers and expert medical attention, and no one involved knows what is in the person’s contract.
There is another factor, too. Praying with frantic feelings fractures your energy; instead of your intention to send healing energy to a beloved person, you are sending the opposite. Whatever the circumstance may be, the most beneficial prayer sent forth calmly is for your own and another’s highest good.
We also have been requested to explain how one can absorb light. This happens automatically by being helpful, compassionate, honest, generous forgiving—living in godly ways. God said it even more simply: Be kind.
Now we offer another way to absorb light. In our December 2019 message we spoke about trees and the valuable assistance these souls provide. A recent message from the Grandmothers, whose wisdom is published on the Net of Light site, was about trees. We received permission to include in our message this pertinent passage:
You are bonding now with the trees, you are reuniting with the tree family. Continue to do that. Continue to spend time with the trees, listening and receiving from them as you, in turn, honor them.
The life force in the trees will harmonize with your own life force, and, when that happens, you will see things differently. You will understand more and understand in a different way than you have before. Let the trees teach you. Call on them and let them know you’re an eager learner, tell them how much you want to learn.
Each day open to a tree. Go up to it and touch it, love it and call the Net of Light to link with it. Then, after a few minutes ask it, “What can I do for you? What do you want me to know?” Make this contact with a tree a habit, a new way of living. This communion with a tree will open up a world for you; it will dissolve your human arrogance and awaken you to the wellspring of connection with all trees. Take this task on and fulfill it faithfully. Begin, and you will soon see the difference in your life. netoflight.org.
Beloved family, there is ever so much more kindness, assistance, beauty and love in your world than you may realize, especially in times of havoc and confusion such as now. Be lighthearted so the energy you radiate helps dispel negative feelings in others.
All light beings in this universe honor you for your steadfast dedication to helping Earth’s peoples awaken and move forward to manifest the planet’s Golden Age.
LOVE and PEACE
