"We have spoken about it on numerous occasions, and although it is very simple, it is a powerful ally. Your word for it is appreciation and what we mean by this is the ability to appreciate the smallest things in your life as well as the large things.
"Appreciation is a fascinating vibrational field with multiple effects. As you watch your economic system go through its metamorphosis, as you watch earth changes increasing and the stresses upon those around you escalating, including the escalation of stress on yourself, remember the doorway of appreciation. All you have to do is step into this field and the disturbances around you will be less able to effect you negatively. The situations you are dealing with might not change, but your emotional response to them will be of a higher order. And you will be more resourceful in how you deal with the challenges you are facing.
"Were we to describe, in detail, the probable future in terms of negative events, it would be overwhelming. That is not our intent, and so we will not discuss it. What we wish to discuss is escape velocity. How do you escape the negative, imprisoning forces that continue to confine you and the human spirit? The most efficient and simple way is to cultivate appreciation — as ridiculous as that may sound in the face of the immense challenges facing your earth. Appreciation is a key that will unlock the doorway to the new world, even as the old world dissolves and falls apart, as it must.
"As the spiritually driven evolutionary forces increase, and the rip in the fabric of your civilization becomes clear to more and more individuals, there will be a tendency for those who are fixated on 3Dimensional reality (without access to the higher dimensions of themselves) to enter into a state of mental and emotional shock, a kind of numbness. You can recognize these numb people because they will walk and talk like normal, but they are like zombies, half aware, half alive. Have compassion for these individuals because they are caught between the old world that is passing away and an uncertain future that has yet to be born. Have compassion, yet be wary of them. Do not let them seduce you into their numbness and fear.
"If you learn to live in appreciation, you will enter a domain, a vibration that will carry you through the chaos of these times. You will find a type of solace and comfort, and the vibrational rate of your energy body will increase. At some point you will reach what we call escape velocity. You will easily step out of the illusions and the lies of the old world. You will see them for what they are, and you will become a joyous co-creator of a new world that is being birthed even as the old world passes away right before your eyes."
