Making the Map for Ascension
by Linda Johnson
25th September 2002
If you've been following the ascension material you will have likely read about the 'mapmakers' of ascension. So who are these people and what exactly are they doing?
I like to explain things in everyday terms so one can form a mental picture, so forgive me if this complex and esoteric subject sounds a bit simplistic. I have to presume that many of the people reading this article are just starting their ascension, so much of the information will have to be understood in a 'mental' and theoretical way before it is actually felt and truly 'known'. Those who are doing the mapmaking, and those consciously following the map can feel the vibrational difference ascension makes right down to the physical level so it is not theoretical to them.
Think of vibrational bandwidths like different coloured liquids in a jar. The heaviest, darkest, thickest are at the bottom (the sludge). The further you move up the jar the lighter, faster moving and more rarified the substance becomes - like lighter and ligher octaves of the same thing.
Imagine this jar as a little creation. Long ago some little people were dropped in, but due to various problems, they and the other creatures and even the planet they were standing on sank lower and lower and lower until they were all in the sludge at the bottom. They all stayed there so long in this slow, dark existence they thought this was a normal state of being. From time to time rescue parties were sent to try and wake them up but their attempts were sabotaged, or the rescuers also fell into forgetfulness.
The rest of creation forgot about them as they were so far out of sight. Nobody knew they were trapped and the path they took to get there was long since erased.
Then the Earth (a living consciousness), who had completed part of a large cycle downwards, started to wake up and feel the pain and darkness. With the desire and intent she sent from below, help from above started to come. Souls who understood about ascending out of the darkness came to embody those trapped there to try and wake them up. The animals, plants, minerals and elements started to awaken and also wanted to ascend back up to where they came from... the humans however have been a bit slower to catch on.
How do we start ascending? What do we have to do? The information had long since been lost or stolen by those who had a vested interest in keeping us down in the sludge. Nobody had a map out of this place.
However, Earth was determined to 'go home' and set her intent to do so. The old souls started to come and help the planets and kingdoms retreive the lost records and information on how to ascend out. They had to start with what was already known and work their way out from the bottom up - mostly through trial and error.
One of the first things they found was that many of the creations, souls, beings and humans that had tried ascending before from this creation (before we hit the bottom of the pond) had very incomplete ascensions. This meant part of them ascended out and large chunks were left behind forgotten and unnoticed. The forgotten pieces still thought they were the original being and started thinking of themselves as gods and 'ascended' masters, and broadcast their wisdom for many thousands of years to an eager public who wanted to know there was something more than the sludge they lived in. However, closer examination will show a sameness in all these messages as they were sophisticated recordings left playing long after the original was gone. Fortunately the original beings will be picking up these pieces and integrating them as part of the overall ascension of this creation so we may yet benefit from their more complete wisdom in the future.
A COSMIC DUMPING GROUND
The ascension of this creation, which includes Earth and all kingdoms has been made particularly hard as there are beings working actively against us ascending. If you think of it in terms of your neighbourhood, in order to have a nice clean street, all the rubbish has to be dumped elsewhere, like in a landfill. In order to have a nice crime-free city, all the so-called 'bad' people have to be dumped in a jail. The bad stuff hasn't disappeared, it's just been dumped out of sight so you can have a nice clean life.
In cosmic terms, our creation is a dump. There are other creations that are able to sustain an existence in 'love and light' because our creation is holding all the darkness. Of course from our end we can't tell the difference because we've grown up thinking it's normal to be surrounded by war, danger, disease, death, torture, consumption of flesh, murder, poverty, pollution etc etc etc. That's just the way the world is! Well it's not like that on other worlds because we've got more than our fair share. And what contains all this darkness is our nice slow, low vibrationary rate. And what keeps this rate low is our own ignorance and perpetuation of the karma and patterns that keep us in the sludge.
What's going to happen if we start waking up and increasing our vibrationary rate? All the shit is going to hit the proverbial fan. All the contained darkness is going to start getting released and going back where it belongs. Of course we still have to deal with out own shit and that is more than enough to have to work on.
As you can imagine not everybody is happy seeing us starting to ascend and some of the seemingly 'willing helper' souls have turned out to be trying to lead us astray so we fail. Many other souls who have enjoyed positions of power in the non-physical are actively working against us so it has been a very tough battle so far, but we are making headway.
CLEARING THE KARMA
In order to ascend, all the accumulated karma in this creation has to be cleared. Earth is clearing hers, the animals, plants, minerals and elements are clearing theirs. And humans, who have accumulated heaps of karma are supposed to be clearing theirs. As you know most people die before they can clear their karma, and with the amnesia in the next life they tend over time to accumulate far more than they clear. This of course keeps us all nicely contained in the sludge.
Since most humans have not woken up, the clearing of human ancestral karma (not the karma you generate yourself) has become one of the jobs of the mapmakers, and those mapfollowers willing to work in this area. As each human is related to many thousands of others, you can work on clearing karma not only for yourself but also back through your ancestral lineages. As you start going up in vibration you can access lineages further and further back - which existed originally at a higher vibration. Clearing the karma there makes available karma-free lineages for future children to be born into. Lineages that have shown to be non conducive to ascension will be phased out for future births. This is how humanity as a species (and the other creatures) are going to have babies born at higher vibrational rates and already ascending. This is how the future of earth can be a peaceful, loving place full of people who honour each other and the earth - not by transplanting the current batch of humans to a clean planet where they will just repeat the same old patterns.
SEEDED FOR ASCENSION
The humans currently alive on earth are an ancestral remnant of various races of humans who have come and gone from this creation and many are mixed with each other to some degree - both genetically and holographically. How far one's genetic tree goes back determines the kind of ascension work and karma they are likely to work on. Many of the humans alive today are descended from breeding programs during the era of the Annanuki and/or Atlantis and may have little or no 'red' genetics. They are more likely to be interested in Atlantis, Egypt and the technological side of our human history and could work on releasing karma associated with these eras.
Those who have predominantly 'red' genetics - native or indiginous people are more likely to be working on their own ascensions through their own ancestors and traditions as there is much more rememberance of unity in these cultures.
The mapmakers that are being gathered by groups such as The Spiritual School of Ascension tend to be predominantly 'white' in this life, however many have ancient ancestral 'red' lineages back to a time when people knew how to ascend, even though they may not look native in this far removed lifetime. Their mixture of red and white lineages puts them in a good position to release the karma off the white lineages, while building a bridge to the red for others who come after them.
The 'white' people who colonised earth long ago from the Pleiades did not have the genetic information for complete ascension, and subsequent breeding programs made sure their workers wouldn't have the ability or desire to wake up at all. This is why it has been very hard to get people awakened particularly in the west. However finding people who can bridge the white ancestral tree back to the earlier colonised 'red' race (which came in at a higher vibrational rate and knew how to ascend) will make a map for future western and mixed children to be able to ascend - even if their parents do not. Most of the native races have the genetic information already to have ascending babies. Future children of all races will know and understand that all humans are one species that had been separated and will again be united.
Through several generations of preparation, births were orchestrated bringing various lineages together and souls embodied those who were seeded for ascension. From about 1951 many future mapmakers and mapfollowers were born. Of course once they came into this world many of them forgot, but as they became adults they were guided more and more to spiritual information and a seeming quest for 'something' long forgotten. I have talked to many people who once they stumble (or are guided with a push) to ascension information suddenly realise this is why they are here and can't get enough.
There are many people seeded for ascension that may never have heard of it. These will move up in vibration unconsciously to one of the lower thresholds of vibration, perhaps sparking an interest in new age topics, world peace etc. They will move out of the worst of the density - the polarity of right and wrong, good and bad, and view the world in a more balanced way that many others around them. The fact that they are not vibrating at the lowest rate means they have taken pressure off earth, who is ascending around them, and also eased the pressure on their own fields.
FOLLOWING THE MAP
The map followers are those consciously working on ascension, usually meditating, releasing karma, retrieving records, working on living an ascending lifestyle and may be aware of the ascension material and updates available which helps to keep them up to date with new information. So much is happening so fast in ascension you need to keep on top of it.
Due to many problems that have been uncovered during the mapmaking process, the councils governing the ascension of this creation have put restrictions on how far each person can ascend in this lifetime depending on their own personal 'mastery' of their thoughtform. As one goes up in vibration their entire field and thoughtform gets bigger and bigger and has more and more influence on those around them. If that person is unaware of what's going on in the unconscious or what entities are lurking in the field or using your energy you can do a great deal of harm. Whether you knew about it consciously or not you will incur the karma from that harm. You could inadvertently generate more karma than you are capable of clearing in a lifetime thereby sabotaging your own ascension.
In the past there have been manipulations to increase the size of the thoughtform to gain power and influence over others and also in an attempt to ascend out of here - inflation of the thoughtform. This form of ascension not only takes from others, but also splits the light and dark leaving behind the unwanted bits that have caused so much trouble in this creation. This kind of inflation will no longer be allowed so there will be some bubbles bursting over the next few years as this moves down to the physical plane.
The only way to ascend without harm was found to be mastery of the thoughtform - where every piece of darkness, karma, shattered piece of self etc was found, forgiven and incorporated into the overall field, brought back to balance, and each individual became their own 'master'. Each must become harmless on all planes so that as they increase their field of influence only unity and ascension is broadcast to assist earth and all around them to ascend. Each is assessed by the councils on the level of their own mastery of thoughtform regardless of race, species, whether they've been taught by others or worked on themselves - and will naturally gravitate to the vibrational level they have mastered. These are the 'initiation levels' - not tests set by humans on other humans - and they can go up or down.
All has to be found and become known - nothing can be left behind to cause trouble in the future. It's a slow job but we have to be thorough. And as each piece is found the lost records are recovered. More and more information comes to light on how we ended up in this predicament in the first place. It is not only the human mapmakers and mapfollowers recovering this information, but animals, dolphins and whales, plants, minerals and elements, nature kingdoms, inner earth people and other planets in this creation. All are slowly piecing themselves back together, supporting each other and finding the missing information and building a pathway out of the distortion and forgetfulness of this creation.
All the information is collated and shared by the councils overseeing ascension so that each species may benefit from what the others have learned. This is why one of the leading mapmakers, Mila (from the Spiritual School of Ascension), is able to keep bringing in new information on a regular basis that has not been previously published, and also why the information changes so fast. Things that were current a year ago may have totally changed by now.
So, a map is made by the mapmakers, checked, tested, checked and test run on test-map followers, checked again and again before it is released and made available to the public map followers at large - then often adjusted as required. Little by little the map from density and loss of consciousness humans experience at 2 strands of DNA, is released for those seeded to ascend to start to unconsciously float up. Once one has reached around 1024 strands (or initiation 1024) one must be consciously aware of what they are doing so they can work towards a state of harmlessness. At this stage there is a map released for ascending to 3000 strands (initiation 3000) - for those who have the genetic information to do so (not everybody does in their current embodiment) and are consciously working on their ascension.
Allowing humans to just float up in vibration unconsciously would quickly cause harm on a global scale and Earth will not allow anything that will sabotage her own ascension. While it was hoped early on that all humans would be able to ascend in a single lifetime, the amount of unconscious harm and outside interference, along with genetic limitations has shown this is not possible, so ascension will be generational, with each ascending generation moving further up than the one before, and keeping pace with earth.
EVERYTHING MUST ASCEND
Just intending to move back up in vibration and leave all the sludge behind is not going to work. You see, EVERYTHING has to ascend. The problems of this creation have been caused by leaving things behind others didn't want to deal with (a pattern humans are well aware of). For starters, everything that does not belong to this creation is being sent home to their own creation as they cannot ascend from this creation and are just stuck here. That gets rid of a large proportion of the problems here. Then we just need to deal with our own. You can start by intending to send back all the pieces of other people you are holding (bits of soul, entities, subtle bodies, gridwork, records) while intending to retreive your own.
We, along with all species, have to work our way back up the same way we came down - picking up the pieces of shattered soul, disentangling the gridwork, giving back all the bits of other people's subtle bodies and retrieving our own, releasing karma with everyone from this life, past lives, ancestral lives, finding lost records and information, building and maintaining our lightbody, changing our thoughtforms and unifying our polarity. You see, we are not even starting from zero. We are less than zero. We are shattered, broken, entangled and diseased (mostly from repeated nuclear war). We will spend the first few ascending generations just piecing ourselves back to full consciousness (36,000 strands) and wholeness from which we can truly start to ascend up the dimensions.
Thought you were going to ascend in a year or so? Sorry, not in this lifetime. You are the first rung on the ascending ladder for future generations. As with most pioneers, the ones who come after will have an easier time of it, but this is why you were born now - and you will experience the future you are creating now through future generations. However there are plenty of benefits from ascending even a little, so the life you live will be infinitely better and more in your control than the life you would have had at the bottom of the pond.
So all the ascension work you do will start to change you - right down to a physical level. Ascension is not like death, where the physical body is left behind. In ascension the body starts moving up in vibration and releasing the density which is why you're forever de-toxing. The lightbody, subtle bodies, etheric body and of course the physical body starts expanding which is why you're putting on weight. You will feel more, create more, think more, understand more - KNOW more as the information you are incorporating starts becoming available through your own field. And although in this lifetime your physical body may not regenerate faster than it degenerates you will notice the slowing down of the ageing process. Future generations will get to the point where they are able to keep up and regenerate - like our ancient ancestors could, and not die until they are good and ready to leave this plane by conscious choice. It will also be much easier for them being born without the inherited genetic diseases which the karma is being cleared for now.
So you can see, just following the map is a lot of work, so spare a thought for the mapmakers....
I can speak from personal experience here. Having spent over 2 years in the Spiritual School of Ascensions' Group Mastery Program I felt like I packed about 20 years work and growth in a 2 year period.
I talked a little previously about personal 'mastery' of thoughtform. This is what fuels your individual ascension. It also will assist in waking up those near you or related to you through both your immediate field and the ancestral lineages you are related to. The individual ascensions of the mapmakers and mapfollowers create a pathway for other individuals of similar lineage to start ascending.
Group mastery makes a blueprint for groups of people (who also hold group karma) to ascend into unity and harmlessness. Imagine if whole countries, tribes or races started ascending unconsciously, increasing the size and influence of their exising thoughtform. Many of the group thoughtforms are filled with ancestral war, violence, dominion and unresolved karma. We don't want to increase the size of these thoughtforms as this will lead to catastrophic events. So a new map for groups also needs to be made.
The people guided to join the Group Mastery program come from all over the world and have lineages to millions of different individuals and different races, tribes and countries (even if they no longer exist in the physical). They have access to all the karma and dramas caused and received by their ancestors. By working together through daily e-mail discussions, meditation, readings, physical and dreamtime gatherings they are able to release the ancestral karma between the various lineages that has led to the current strife humanity is in today.
Just a small gathering of dedicated mapmakers can release karma that is related to many thousands or millions of people alive today. However, the people alive today are responsible for the karma they incur in this lifetime and may continue to fight it out until their deaths. What the mapmakers have done however, will benefit the incoming children as the lineages they are born to will no longer carry the genetic karma for what has been released.
For example, the work that was done last year for world peace was not just a bunch of people gathering in a circle and praying for peace. Apart from the ongoing 'intent' (not prayer) for world peace to help anchor that thoughtform, a lot of work was done to release karma from the various nuclear wars that have gone on in eras long before our current recorded history. Even though the events are long forgotten the results and the karma that caused them live on in our genetics and are passed on to each generation who just repeats the karma resulting in another nuclear war.
Releasing this karma means that the future ascending children born will not be carrying this genetic predisposition and karma for nuclear war - or war in general. Unfortunately we still have to live with the current world leaders until the new babies are old enough start making a difference - but they will start to influence those around them to awaken, along with other awakening humans, so we will see a groundswell of people caring more about peace than war. The current wars will tend to stay regional as each of the non ascending humans completes their karma for this lifetime. So you see the future peace will not come from any 'peace process' of the currently fighting humans - they are incapable of it - but from the growing influence for peace of ascending humans and incoming babies.
The karma for warfare was worked on first because several nuclear wars is what has diminished and shattered us so much genetically. If there is another nuclear war, Earth and all species, including us, would drop too low genetically to be able to ascend at all and become extinct - then everything else would be pointless. This year the mapmakers are working on releasing karma for disease and next year it will be poverty.
BECOMING A MAPMAKER
Mapmaking ascension is 'world service' - giving to help others and earth as well as oneself. But if you are thinking of doing it just to get access to information that is not published, you will be in for a shock. It's bloody hard work. I recommend you read all the published information on my site and the SSOA site first and start working with the information as a map follower. If you still feel guided to join Group Mastery you will be more use to yourself, the group and to Earth with some basic knowledge about what you're doing and why, as well as what is expected of you.
As a mapmaker your ascension is accelerated potentially to levels that are not available to the general public as yet. The further you go, the larger your potential influence. The map you make could lead thousands or millions of other people in your footsteps. You are literally a mine-clearer. You are boldly going where no man (or woman) has gone before - at least for a very long time. If you don't do your job thoroughly or are unlucky you will step on a mine and have to go back, piece yourself together and make a new path. A map cannot be released to thousands of others to follow that will lead them astray or cause ascension to fail.
Of course there are no instructions, so the information I share here I hope will be of help to new mapmakers as well as those following the map. The people leading the way are learning just as much as you - feeling their way and copping the main brunt of those trying to stop ascension. Only their intense commitment to ascension pushes them on. When they see a potential disaster they warn you. Others making the map will find things and warn the other mineclearers. There are frequently beings actively trying to stop you, looking for loopholes or ways they can tap in, and they too need to be cleared back to where they have come from and the damage repaired.
The mapmakers have no time to waste. Earth and all other kingdoms are also working at a fast pace. They all need to be at a certain average vibrationary level at certain times for passing through the stargates of the Great Central Sun and up into the next vibrationary bandwidth, or be left behind for eternity. Being pulled along by the pace of the group means your personal ascension and the changes that entails is also accelerated.
If you were just ascending at your own pace, you would change your job that don't serve when you were ready, move from non-resonant places when you feel you're ready, end relationships that no longer serve at the time you feel ready. When you are pulled along by the group you feel pressured to deal with these things often before you feel ready. You have one foot accelerating in the new consensus for ascension, while the other is struggling to hold things in place in the old that are still required to live.
I have written previously about Ascending in the Real World where I talk about the changes your guidance will prompt you to make - and that's just if you're ascending unconsciously. If you start consciously intending to ascend and following the map, the changes will have to start being made to accommodate ascension - however you'll still be stopping and starting at your own pace.
If you're serious about wanting to mapmake, start sorting out your life while you are initially learning about ascension, as you will be pulled along at a faster pace and if you haven't released old attachments the drag will not only slow you down, but impact on others who are mapmaking. Don't just read the information from a purely intellectual perspective and think mapmaking is going to be just more articles and meditation. Ascension requires living in and relating to the world in a more fluid way that will be required in the future. You can't expect to stay exactly how you are and make a map for thousands of others to follow into stagnation. Changes will be forced upon you and if you can't keep pace you will have to quit mapmaking.
Being guided to mapmake is a little like being called up for world service for a year or two. Most of the mapmakers I have met have only done this work for a year or two. They are drawn in because their lineages hold information and karma that is relevant to the work at hand. They continue their work as long as they can until their contribution is complete. For most of them the contribution involves uncovering a dangerous pattern or problem by stepping on it themselves. This saves everyone who comes after them as a safe path is made, but usually means the end of their mapmaking work. They are then released from the group to repair themselves and continue their personal ascension in their own way.
The mapmaking group is not a committee that sits around discussing what's fair and passes judgement. They are a group with a mission that is so important that they cannot be distracted from what they are doing and where they are going. They have a common purpose while they work together and unfortunately that means they often have to cut ties with those no longer mapmaking to keep any distortion out of their own fields. Many of them have also had to cut ties from families and non-ascending partners, and even children to do this job. Those getting involved in mapmaking need to understand why ties need to be cut (attachments released), and not to take it personally. The mapmakers are always grateful to those who have left for uncovering the potential disasters - and this is what they became mapmakers for - so that every path and pitfall to ascension becomes known. They all know that at some point their own mapmaking will cease and they will move on to their own work. However they have cleared the path for the next group of mapmakers to move up more rapidly to where they left off without having to encounter the same problems, thus being ready to work on the next phase of the map.
Again there are no instructions or support groups for ex-mapmakers as they are a relatively new breed. Most have reported periods of adjustment as their accelerated higher vibration is dropped back to a mapfollower level so they can be safe ascending on their own. The symptoms include feeling like moving in slow motion and moving through mud, being dazed and confused as well as feelings of rejection and abandonment as ties are cut with the group. People go from daily talks with a network of people who know what they're talking about to being all of a sudden alone with nobody understanding what they are going through. It's like letting go of a rubber band - you sort of plunge down and wobble for a while before coming back into balance. Spending time in nature as much as possible can help, and asking the Earth and nature kingdoms to help adjust your field and bring you into balance.
My own mapmaking work ceased due to the large amount of distortion that was uncovered coming through my old web site that was threatening the new consensus for ascension (written about here). This took several months to clear physically and energetically, but in removing the old site and no longer having to spend every waking hour maintaining it I now have time to spend on the things my guidance wants me to do... teaching others about ascension, running courses, doing healing. We are also making plans for moving to the country as we cannot ascend any further living in the city. The wheels were set in motion the very week I finished mapmaking as everything worked out in the right divine time.
For all the hard work and sacrifices involved I would still have to say that the time I spent mapmaking was still an immensely rewarding experience. So much spiritual information was downloaded. Years of work and information was compressed into a short space of time. I also knew that this was part of the work I came here to do so I just got stuck into it. I've had the honour and priviledge of working with people who 'walk the talk' - as living examples of true spiritual leadership in action. The information and lessons I learned will hopefully help others who are just starting their journey and help potential mapmakers do the best job they can.
All for one... and one for all....
