Question: There seems to be some difference between the ascension of the earth as claimed by some other spiritual groups and the ascension of the individual in the teachings of the ascended masters. What is the difference between a collective ascension of planet earth and that of the individual? And which is our priority?
Answer from the Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels. This answer was given at a conference in Seoul, Korea in 2017.
Yes, there is indeed a difference, my beloved, because there are many false teachings out there that are attempting to fool people into looking beyond their own situation and their own egos and thinking that all they need to do is work for the ascension of the earth and then they don’t have to look at their own psychology. Planet earth as such will not ascend until this entire sphere ascends and that is not something you need to worry about in your lifetimes, I can assure you.
There is, of course, always the possibility that the vibration of the collective consciousness (and even in the longer term the vibration of matter) can be raised, but this is not the same as the planet ascending. A planet really does not ascend in the way we have described the process of an individual. What you need to focus on, and what is your priority, is to resolve your own psychology and walk the path towards Christhood so that you can qualify for your personal ascension. This will pull up on the collective consciousness and raise the vibration of the planet.
Again, it is not the goal of the ascended masters to cause the earth to ascend; it is our goal to manifest a Golden Age on earth so that it continues to exist even in the physical spectrum although with less density of matter so that many of the manifestation you see on earth now, such as old age, disease, poverty and lack are transcended. This is still not the same as the ascension. The way we explain ascension, the earth will not ascend until the entire sphere ascends. Now there are, of course, some very clever beings in the mental realm who have different definitions of ascension, but these do not come from us and therefore we do not really wish to give an in-depth commentary on it.
