St. Clare ~ Your Ascension and What Lies Ahead
“What I come to talk about is to celebrate with you your Ascension. And you say, “Well, Clare, what does that look like?” And what I say to you – we did not have mirrors in our community, but you do! – so what I say to you: “If you wish to see what an Ascended Self looks like, look in the mirror and look at each other and conjoin and celebrate, and keep going!”

[Meditation from 7:20 to 17:45]
St. Clare: Greetings, I am Clare.
StC: And welcome to you, to each and every one of you. And yes, I bring you the gift of clarity. It is my namesake, it is my essence, and it is the strength and the beauty and the wonder of who I am, and who I have always been, and who I continue to be. And so I invite you to travel with me this day and every day.
No, I do not present myself as archangel or master, but rather as fellow journeyer in this magnificent journey of love back to the Mother, always, and in the company not only of my beloved Francis but in the company of Yeshua, yes, of Jesus.
And as the channel has mentioned, this is the official feast day of the Ascension, and that is why I have asked to come and to speak to you. It is not merely to mark and celebrate the ascension of Yeshua. It is to mark and to celebrate and to share with you the insights of your ascension, and for you to accept, to embrace, and yes, beloved ones, to embody your Ascended Self.
When I have walked the Earth as Clare (my adopted name), I have walked away in many ways – both Francis and I walked away – from the world or what was termed ‘the world’. We walked away from the pomp and the ceremony and the artificiality of those societies. We walked away, not in disdain or despair or even rejection, although my father would disagree!
We walked away from the world to truly discover the world, and in that to discover myself – not through pride or artifice but in the connection to All, to the planet, to Gaia, the one that you call Gaia, to the plants and the animals and to my community.
Much is said – and correctly so, by the way; the recountings are quite accurate – but much has been made of my love, which is true, of Francis and might I say his love of me. But our point of conjoining, our point of connection, was truly our love for Jesus. It allowed us, in this place of conjunction, to join in Christ Consciousness, to join in the love.
And it was not compartmentalised. It was not “this is my love for Francis, this is my love of self, this is my love of community, this is my love of Mother Earth.” It all became one thing and it was a robust, loving, caring, rich – rich, rich, rich – life.
I found myself in walking away from the world that I had been born into and come to know, because it was ultra-restrictive. It was the external reality of family, of friends, of society trying to define me. I was very rebellious – and, my beloveds, rebellion can be a very positive thing!
Many of you, my family and friends, my sisters and brothers, have also chosen what some would see and what you at times have expressed as a rebellious journey. It is that determination, stubbornness, to truly find your way, not as defined by institution or structure or even family, even the family you love and adore.
This path of lightworker/lightholder, this path of Ascension, has not been a path that has been trod by many or often, so you are breaking new ground. And when I say this, yes, it is true, all who are upon the planet have been aware of this situation prior to return as part of your contracts, but some have – many! – have remained asleep and that is all right.
But who I come to truly speak to this night is those of you who are not asleep and who have been consciously wide-awake, pursuing this path of Ascension, and both intellectually and mentally, emotionally and spiritually, trying to figure it out!
Because there has been much said and much written and many adjustments, and time adjustments as well, along the way – and you have persevered. And you have not simply persevered in a way of survival, of one step in front of the next. You have persevered and expanded and accepted the frequency attunements which, yes, of course, have been uplifting but also difficult at moments physically and mentally and emotionally.
And you have felt your heart swell, and while many of you have not physically levitated – my beloveds, you have levitated individually and collectively. Now, I am not coming to talk about separation, but let us give the acknowledgement and the encouragement where it is due, because you have levitated through the dimensions.
And as you have, you have put your hand out, you have extended yourself literally and etherically to those left behind and said, “Come along, come along, come along!” And sometimes they have grabbed your hand in glee, and sometimes they have been kicking and screaming. But that is the job, that is the journey of Ascension, and it most certainly is the path of the wayshower.
You are doing, and have done, and will be doing exemplary work with and for our beloved Yeshua, with and for our beloved Mother. I did not re-engage with that world that I had left behind. It was not that my love for my family, my friends, was extinguished; it most certainly wasn’t, but my path in that lifetime was to leave that behind.
And many of you have left those who do not understand, those who do not wish to participate, those old structures, those old belief systems, those false grids and paradigms – you have left that behind, and that has been necessary for your Ascension.
You are in your Ascension, beloveds!
But what lies ahead? You will re-engage. This is your pathway, not only pulling up and pulling along and showing that there is a different path, and creating and co-creating with us and with each other Nova Earth and the way it was always intended to be. But in that creation of the new, many of you will re-engage with what you think of as the old, as what is in transition. It is not about tearing down or seeing dust to dust, ashes to ashes, crumbling institutions. You are saving and resurrecting what is good, what is whole, what is worthwhile, what should be saved – yes, letting the rest go.
This will be a challenge for many of you, but also understand you come to that not as the person – and I mean “person”, I do not mean bright angel, I do not mean soul, I do not mean unconscious involvement – I mean the person, in form, in beauty, in love, in joy, in purity. You engage as the person, never in judgment but in refined discernment, refined balance, divine authority and divine knowing of what stays and what goes.
And you do this with the authority to build in the Mother’s name, not in the name of private interests or personal interests – and God forbid, quite literally, abuse of authority. You do so to build a new form of community.
You see, when both Francis and I built community, it was so precious and we kept that external world at bay. We were very protective because we knew of the dangers and the distractions, and we wished to keep our focus on what was pure, what was not a distraction. And so, yes, I did battle [chuckles] with those that would wish to penetrate our community and influence our way of life, and our way of praise, and our way of prayer, and our way of meditation. And that was appropriate – and necessary, by the way – for that time and place.
And many of you will have and do have similar communities that you are protective of, that you don’t want influenced or usurped by these external forces, and we support that and promote that and encourage that. But even in that, you will leave those insular communities and you will engage with the larger collective.
And you will reflect to them: What does a love community look like? How does it behave? How does it act? How does it influence? How does it create? And how does it create in tangible ways that serve the collective, so that that example of what true community is about expands and expands and expands until it is the norm, until that private, personal, greed interest is simply no more – and where the ebb and flow, the checks and balances of the community, heal and help when an individual has a momentary lapse; whether it is in a year or ten years, it is a momentary lapse when they wish to gain control or act in false authority over another.
You, in your ascending self, in this time of Ascension, in this time of such ultimate transition where you think of it where not only societies are colliding and meshing, but literal cultures and planetary influences and interplanetary influences not just colliding but interweaving, finding the common ground – you are truly the builders, not merely the implementers… that sounds like a task… but you are the weavers of the new.
There were times when the community of Francis and our community would come together for a sacred purpose, sometimes to build a church, sometimes to simply pray and meditate and share a meal. We would come together, not to force or overshadow, but to truly mesh and share the joy, share the insights, share the struggles at times. But then we would separate and go to retreat and refuel and re-gather our energies. And so it will be with you.
You will go to the broader community to share insights and wisdom and growth and building and many meals, but do not think that you will not, time and time and time again, with purpose and divine orchestration, retreat. All beings have need for that more insular community, and yes, in your society, what this being calls “her nest, her home, her sacred space” or your inner circle that feeds you, that supports you, that loves you, that knows you, that cherishes you. It does not negate the greater whole, but it renews you and it allows you to grow and then re-engage and then retreat.
It is not that growth does not and cannot take place as you are in the bigger engagement, but all beings follow the cycles of life, whether it is the tide or the moon or the day. There is an ebb and flow and it is incumbent upon each being to know and to honour what that rhythm is, because being in that ebb and flow allows you, in your unique way and in your unique community, to contribute accordingly. And it allows you to be in the balance, and the refined balance, of your ascending/ascended self.
The emotional and the spiritual, and even the physical part of me, wished always to be in the company of Francis, in that conjoined euphoric space. And yet, I also knew, as did he, that there was need for the sanctity of individual, private, sacred space because I would have gladly simply basked in his light and love. And the challenge of that and the challenge of sacred union, my friends, is that you forget your own sacred light, you forget your own ascension and expansion. So it is that balance, that ebb and flow.
But what I come to talk about is to celebrate with you your Ascension. And you say, “Well, Clare, what does that look like?” And what I say to you – we did not have mirrors in our community, but you do! – so what I say to you: “If you wish to see what an Ascended Self looks like, look in the mirror and look at each other and conjoin and celebrate, and keep going!”
Dearest heart, Suzi, where do you wish to begin?
Suzi: Oh, thank you. Okay, so one thing – those that you’ve mentioned who remain asleep, while our responsibilities revolve around doing our own personal work, as a collective we really do have concern over what happens with them while the rest of us go through our ascension. Can you speak to that, please?
StC: Well, of course, it is not about leaving them behind! Now, it is also not about interfering with free will. You cannot override free will. That is the most heinous crime and it leads to war and devastation.
But particularly as women – and yes, I speak to women – and this was part of the reason for our own community because, at that time, there was most certainly a paradigm of the authority and abuse of authority of men. And Francis – and I, but he taught me, and I was stubborn! – was very aware of this paradigm, and part of our journey and part of our work together was to break that paradigm. And we have done so, by the way.
Now you are in the next phase, in the true re-anchoring of the Divine Feminine and the honouring of the Divine Feminine upon the planet, and that is a key portion that sometimes gets overlooked. We’re not talking about just being female; we’re talking about the anchoring of the Divine Feminine in all, male/female/transgender, it matters not.
But as women, are we not, by virtue of society even in your time, are we not adept at learning and using and doing in ways that are gentle, conciliatory, confident, expansive, understanding, compassionate… the list goes on?
But women, particularly, are very adept at reaching out to those who are asleep and gently waking them, not in ways that say, “Wake up, you’ve got 5 minutes, we’re going to war!” but in ways that are soft and considerate and say, “You’ve been asleep. I hope you had a good rest. I have something phenomenal that I want to show you and share with you, and it’s about my heart, it’s about my soul, it’s about what’s possible when we proceed together.”
Now I am not talking about you phoning the Kremlin or the White House. I am talking about your community, not the insular community but the broader community, as you reach out to groups or one by one by one and you say, “I see you and I would like to share with you.” And does it require you extending yourself? Yes, it does. But as people look at you, even those groggy and just waking up say, “Well, I want to know her, I want to live as she’s living because she seems to have something, she seems happy, she seems to be on track, and so often I’ve felt alone and adrift and forgotten and separated, abandoned.” So you are extending yourself. So you are waking up.
Now, are there those that in likelihood will choose to remain asleep? Yes, but that does not mean in this transition that you are not extending yourself. And let me also add this, because I have experienced in my life those who came and wished to overtake our compound, and who were converted to a gentler path – no, not Christian or Hindu or Buddhist, just an awakening within their hearts.
So there will be those that we have talked about that you think of as deeply asleep, who will awaken very abruptly and they will think, their initial response will be: “I’ve got to get that, I’m going to take that, it’s mine, I deserve that.” It is an abrupt awakening. It is a bit of shock to the system.
But when you nurture, when you say, “You are welcome to come within the walls of this community, but there are rules, there are responsibilities, and there are huge payoffs. So you are welcome, and we welcome you in peace, we welcome you in joy. You are not excluded, you are not forgotten, but come in gentleness. Don’t run me over. You don’t have permission to do that.” So it is gentle strength.
So it is not about ignoring or forgetting, as you are ascending, those that are not quite there yet. The heart opening that I have experienced in that conjoined space with Yeshua and Francis is happening to everybody. Now, for some, it will literally feel like a heart attack and they will be panicked. You will calm them, you will show them: this is the gift, this is the bliss, this is the joy, this is the natural state of what it means to be Nova Being.
Is this clear?
Suzi: Yes, thank you very much. That’s lovely. We only have a couple of minutes, but I’ve noticed a more frequent shift in perception. I get that it’s about phasing back and forth in dimensions, and I’m just wondering what comes next? So it’s becoming more frequent and eventually it will become the norm…
StC: It will become the norm, yes, and you are learning. You see, we are not doing it, the Mother is not doing it in such a dramatic, abrupt fashion that you feel that you are disassociating. So what is happening is you are getting used to the interdimensional shift, the continental shift [chuckles], so what you are doing… at times you are with me in the 10th dimension of beauty and we are having a wonderful time!
Because there are times when you look at a tree, at a sky, at a cloud, at a flower and you say, “Oh, nice flower,” and you are really anchored in the 3rd. And then there are times when you look at it and you truly see the magnificence and you are in the 10th! Sometimes you are in the 11th in your mastery, but you are primarily anchoring in the 7th of love. So yes, this will be your new normal, but we are doing it in ways that do not let you think – mental body – that you are psychotic!
Suzi: Right! Well, okay, but it also brings me to the idea of politics. A lot of people are objecting that we pay attention to politics on the Golden Age of Gaia blog. But in my estimation, this is what our world is right now, and to not pay attention to it and ignore it or even to engage in it and fight about it and say what’s right and what’s wrong… it’s better just to observe, but I feel it’s also important to know what’s going on. So it’s just interesting in paying attention to those things at the same time that we’re paying attention to the higher path.
StC: But let us bring the dimensional shift to this. Politics is a perfect example, whether it was me dealing with Rome or Florence, or you dealing with a global arena. When you look at what you think and perceive as going on, are you seeing and bringing the interdimensional qualities, and seeing the opportunities to wake people up?
So when you bring an issue to the forefront in love, saying, “This perhaps is not a loving path. How can we infuse it and redirect it?” So it is not buying into the status quo. It is about redirect, redirect, redirect. Expand the community of love.
Suzi: Well, that’s wonderful. I appreciate it. Have you got anything to say in closing?
Suzi: [Laughing] Thank you!
StC: And keep going! Go with my love, go with my joy! Farewell.
