Greetings from Home, Dear Ones. I am the Keeper of Time.

I come to you this day and intersect with your timeline for just a moment to help touch your hearts and to help remind you who you are and where you are coming from. You are distant travelers who have definitely been around. Yet here you are now, settled on Earth and making rapid changes. There are so many incredible changes that sometimes it is difficult for us to keep up with all the things that humans are doing on planet Earth. Today we will share a little bit of what is coming in the year ahead; it is rather fascinating to watch what is taking place. By the time you get through February 2017, you will feel a bit of a calmness that has not been here for a while. In some ways, it is the calm before the storm. Dear ones, re-member that most change cannot happen when in the midst of calm. By its very definition, “change” often involves such disruption that a ripple is left in its wake. Do not fear this, for the change is actually what you have come to be a part of.

We Have You

So many of you have come to Earth trying to figure out where you can be, what this will look like, and how it is going to work for you. Here you are, right in the midst of it now. Of course, the greatest fear is what happens if you fail. Such a scary word, fail. What happens if you cannot accomplish things? What happens if you extend yourselves and somehow you are hurt? Well, that is the important part we wish to tell you today…we have your back. We look over your shoulder and try to direct you from time to time, each and every one of you. It does not matter where you are in the world, what your history has been, or which level you believe yourself to be. The truth is, we have you. It is almost as if you would let your children free to go play, but there are certain things you hope they do not get into and places they will not go. Their explorations can obviously cause problems, although as that happens, they will learn from them as part of the game. We tell you, dear ones, you are in somewhat of a safe zone. Especially during the next two years, when there will be major changes taking place. Consider, dear ones, that every three or four years a profound energy changes takes place, basically moving everyone up very rapidly—almost too rapidly. Then you would have to do whatever you could to ground yourself, to take that light and bring it into your life and anchor it. That is the challenging part. In 2016, you had a major change as well on September 27th, with a wave of energy that came in. Prior to that, you have seen so many things coming in. Actually, you saw the gravitational wave that Einstein predicted some time back coming into the planet. Every three or four years you have these big events—huge, vibrational raising events. Next year you will have four of them.

Four Waves of Vibrational Changes

Can you see the changes that are ahead? It does not happen this way except on evolving planets, for you are in motion, dear ones. All of humanity is reaching levels that have not been set by humans before. You have capabilities of reaching a spiritual awareness within each of you that allows you to touch the god within. Then, you will know it.

Many of you have the seeds of fear deeply ingrained within you. Some are from past life experiences, but others you have stepped forward into willingly through own work only to find great resistance and possibly even death as a retribution. We understand that it is difficult to understand, so we re-mind you of this: We have your back, as you say on Earth. We are watching out for everything that you do because in this time, dear ones, there is a new chaos which is simply created out of vocal fears. You have so much technology on the planet now that you are able to collect these little bits all together as one. They appear much larger than they truly are and that is always true of the dark side, which always appearing much larger than it is. So, we ask you all to look at this within yourselves. What can you change about your own belief systems? What can you shift to help you to ground and to gain the confidence in your light? All we are asking you to do is to step into the energy. Many of you are teachers and healers on your own path, already doing quite well by bringing your energy out into the Earth. Keep that up and help those who are just now awakening to gain the confidence. They need to step out and start creating a reality of their own choosing rather than one set by default, which is what most humans have been doing.

New Opportunities

Yes, we tell you there are those who plan ahead. There are the planners that make projections about their lives, businesses, and where they are going to be in 5 or 10 years. Very few people plan ahead on a personal, spiritual level but you have that capability now. You have the option of deciding who you will be in the next few years. You have the opportunity now to place yourself in the best position within the wave with new opportunities that you have not seen before. Yes, dear ones, there will be chaos and you will see much of it, for the pace is rapid and humans do not do well with change. Perhaps something has always been done a certain way before, but suddenly you will do it a totally different way. The vibrational raises are coming soon the first one will enter earth’s field between March 4 and 17th. They all enter as waves and there are now so many that are interfering with each other to some extent. This is causing a bit of a shift in the timeline and thus makes it difficult to predict the exact dates of the other three events at this time; however, you are set up to receive four huge energy cycles in 2017.

Help Each Other

An event that set things into motion a couple of years ago involved the timelines intersecting with each other. It was a rather large event that took place, following an earlier shift of the 12-12. The four events on their way are opportunities to make similar leaps of that size and they will all open within the year of 2017. What happens to those who cannot make the changes? Well, that is precisely why so many lightworkers are now on the planet—to help those at other parts of the spectrum. Please do not judge it as being right or wrong, because you negate your own energy when you do that. Simply observe and understand that humanity has a bandwidth. Although there is a high vibration and a low vibration, humans can only move as fast as the slowest person. Additionally, these four vibrational shifts are meant for specific reasons, so let us explain.

Because the bandwidth of humanity has grown in this way, you have never been through what you are experiencing on planet Earth right now. Before you would have left the planet by now, perhaps going on to colonize a new planet. We do not mean through your so-called space ships, but through your spiritual bodies as you have already done many times. There was a time when you inhabited Mars yet here you are living on her neighbor, Earth. If you think that is interesting wait until you hear the rest of the story. Soon you will start uncovering a great deal more, because now you are very interested in Mars. It is your closest neighbor after all. Yes, you will find out much about your own history though not all of it will make sense in the physical realm at this moment. Re-member, dear ones, you are a spirit first and a human second. Harmony between the two has the opportunity to create change so let us go back to the bandwidth for a moment.

The Recessional Wave Will End

With all of this incredible change, humanity has moved up. However, it is also currently in a recessional wave. The recessional wave has the effect of creating separation in everything and it also does so in every aspect of humanity, that is why there is a resurgence of separation on earth. It even has the effect of making the highest of vibration of humanity and the lowest vibration further apart. Again humans have a separation instead of a unity occurring. With the four major movements taking place during 2017 you can begin bringing this back together and change the direction of the recessional wave. That is what you are looking at right now, and it is profound. IF this stays on track the recessional wave will end within the next two to three years, resulting in a complete turnaround in a different direction. Enjoy that journey, dear ones, because it will validate your understanding of your own power of creation.

Start Creating For You

You are creator beings, but does that mean you must create a different set of rules for everything? No, since you are just creating for you. Begin creating your highest dream with whatever it takes to bring that energy into your being. Many people are closing their hearts and protecting themselves from the anger and density they feel around them. We challenge you to take this opportunity to move in the opposite direction and expand your passions anchoring new light in times of darkness. Dare to play, expand and improve yourself.  If you fall into fear the recessional wave takes much longer to reverse.  Fill yourself with the Light from Home at every opportunity. These are photons that carry fully charged light within your body. We will share more about that shortly, but basically it involves learning how the energy moves so you can consciously fill yourself with light. You bodies have been slowly adapting over the last seven years to carry more light.  This Light has amazing effects in the world around you, for the new times are coming. You have four major steps next year alone, and we cannot wait to see how you resolve these situations. These steps open the proverbial door for a full understanding of multidimensionality, as well as a full understanding of your spirit. Re-member, it is who you truly are beneath all the chaos that you have in your world at the moment.

Take these words, dear ones. Make them your own for each of you here is a slightly different message that we speak and that is as it should be because even though we are using certain words to reach everyone, we speak to each heart individually. You know who you are and we honor you for your work more than you could ever understand. Embrace these four movements coming forward—these incredible opportunities–and know that this is why you came to Earth in the first place. Keep up the good work.

It is with the greatest of honor that we greet you in these ways. We ask you to treat each other with respect whenever possible. Nurture each another whenever you have that opportunity and play well together on the new Earth. I am the Keeper of Time and I leave you with love.


The word Espavo is an early Lemurian greeting : “Thank You for Taking Your Power”

Connecting the Heart

– Life is not what it used to be –

By Barbara Rother

We hear it every day that life is changing in our personal reality and the world around us. In this new year of 2017, it seems ever more prevalent. We all feel the pull to adjust to each new changing factor that presents itself while wanting to cling to the sentimental familiarity. We long to keep life simple and comfortable but these changes lead us to a shakeup forcing us to adjust to what is unfolding to the path in front of us.

It is impossible to remain stagnant in our existence. When we try to do so we lose our excitement in life and the potential growth of being all that we can be. Our light would begin to fade by living in the past. So I encourage all of us to take that first step and embrace the future beginning today.

I am a very sentimental person. I think most of Lightworkers feel this way. Our hearts are open with empathy to all around us. Having the life lesson of Definition, I tend to reach out to others instead of focusing on myself. By doing this we forget who we are and then we have nothing to offer anyone or help this world in which we exist.

I am thrilled to see the changes with all living creatures especially the animals. Many of you know Steve and I recently adopted our dog, Sadie. She is the perfect extension of our family. We cannot imagine our home without her. She is a consent reminder of unconditional love. Every so often I think about what her life had been like before we brought her into our home. She was a rescue dog who was scheduled to be put to sleep the day after we got her. All that we know about her is that she is three years old and the vet said she probably already had three litters of puppies. I feel she was used for breeding puppies then discarded as no longer useful. I can’t imagine why she had not been adopted before but yet I know. The minute we saw her we knew she was meant for us. It breaks my heart to see so many unwanted animals just waiting to be loved. It is encouraging to see the many loving volunteers who help with the shelters reaching out to the public awareness trying to connect each dog or cat to a home.

Another big change with our awareness with how animals are being treated is, “The Greatest Show on Earth.” Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus are closing down after 146 years of existence. The sadness comes with the sentimentality I mentioned before as we humans tend to feel. Many feel this is heartbreaking because of the precious memories that are held from childhood but many celebrate this news. It is time to move on with the end of this era. Several of us grew up with the circus being the highlight of our childhood. Steve and I took our two sons often to view the exciting show. Our boys even had the delight of riding on an elephant’s backs as a preshow treat. It all was a feeling of magic while not realizing how the animals were being treated behind the scenes. In recent years clashes of how elephants were treated have led to removing the animals altogether, retiring them to sanctuaries. Times have caught up with the circus. People are more aware now. Things are changing. Children are more advanced now where they are not going to a circus as they are into the many other choices life has to offer.

This is putting a lot of people on notice for a change. Zoos, Aquariums, anywhere where living creatures are being treated unfairly will be scrutinized by humans. As a family living in San Diego, California, we thrilled with the experience of Sea World, especially seeing “Shamoo” the killer whale. Children delighted with being splashed by these beings while their trainers made them perform. I remember one time Steve and I had out of town friends come to visit. We decided to enjoy a special lunch right next to the main pool where the whales swim. It was a special behind-the-scenes area and a private show with whales and their trainers. We were all enjoying ourselves when we started to feel something amiss. The whales went berserk while the trainers frantically ran around trying to control the situation. No one was hurt except for the whales splashed so much that several people were drenched with water ruining their lunches. This was my first awareness of these creatures not being pleased with their environment. After that, we learned a trainer had been killed by one of the whales at a Sea World causing them to stop this part of the show. At first, I was sad because I felt this display was a highlight of Sea World then deep inside I knew it was time for a change.

Perhaps this is the first step for us to change, animals, next with the humans we co-exist within this world. We are all living creators who inhabit Mother Earth. Let’s support each other. Life is not what it used to be nor do we want it to be. Here is a new awareness of living.

With love and light, Barbara

  1. Thank you so very much, Barbara, for sharing with us about the animals. I, too, have never been able to go to the dolphin -whale shows or zoos. Every time I tried and had a chance to look into their eyes, I would burst into tears, I felt so much of their pain. So for many years , I have been sending the Light and Beautiful Violet Flame of Love and Forgiveness through all animal zoos and encounters during my meditations. My heart is so touched as humanity starts to realize that we must change the ways in which we encounter the animals who cannot speak for themselves. Thank you to all of you who are working toward this goal. I AM Ever in Gratitude and I send deep, deep Love to All my brother and sister Lightworkers on this beloved planet and Beyond.

  2. Thank you, Barbara for mentioning the animals. My heart aches for them. You didn’t mention rodeos and I want to include them since we are shedding light on areas up for change around animals used for our entertainment. Inspiring compassion for all animals, Debbie

  3. Thank you,Barbara! I miss you and Steve very much!!! I have a question for you. I was going to sign up for Heavy Breathing with Merlin but those days just don’t work for me. Will you be offering it again? I have no computer now and I do everything on my phone( for better or worse).You may not remember me but I hope to somehow participate in your Merlin activation. With great love and support for you and Steve, Terri
