The upside of writing the opening paragraph last is that I can warn you that this post is wordy. Get comfortable, pull up a chair.
For months I have thought about writing some kind of commentary, and you can tell how far that thought went by how many updates have been posted since the channeling last January. Rhymes with zero. I’m going to go ahead and blame the dearth of communication on being sidelined by a continuous stream of personal process work by both me and Michele, and currents of life moving me to destinations other than doing things I think I should.
I’m also going to go ahead and presume that many of you have been similarly occupied as the acceleration of incoming energies has been amping up, relentlessly pushy as they are. Most people I connect with have reported a variety of physical symptoms at times including vertigo, blurred vision, fatigue or sudden needs to nap, lack of motivation and insomnia. Did I mention lack of motivation?
We’re also arriving at the “no place left to hide” phase with the apocalypse of external revelations competing for attention with what can no longer be comfortably avoided in our own experiences. Some people may even think it is others who most need to shift. Ha ha, nope. Everyone gets a prompt to move into personal alignment, whether that nudge is received from within or without.
In writing this update I was unsure how to transition from the chit chat of a general greeting to the potentially challenging core message. Sometimes diving directly into deeper waters is the less tentative option, so let’s see how it goes.
The intention for Lightsmith felt fulfilled in 2016 and the infrastructure we had built was no longer needed. Our schedule of events came to completion in the fall of that year and in early 2017 we sold our building. Does that seem long ago or what? We have since stayed in touch through these updates and other postings on the Choice for Love site, albeit with less regularity than in previous times.
Although we ended group gatherings, we continued the tradition of sharing a New Year’s message channeled from friends in Spirit and/or the Earth Mother. In January of 2020 the information we posted spoke of challenges that would arise and be with us for at least two years. In 2021 and 2022 we continued to be informed of a general sense of what we might experience, along with suggestions for how to navigate our way through murky waters.
As a sequence of events began to unfold in 2020 I became more active on social media with perspectives on those events, reflecting a sense that another scenario lurked beyond the crafted stories portending to be real. For two years I dug deep, spending hundreds of hours researching, sharing data, quoting learned opinion and making personal commentary. For all that time it felt important for me to do so. Then, it didn’t.
The energy that had been supporting my efforts began to recede and I felt informed by the same kind of internal prompt as when Lightsmith was ending. I began to post less often but soon had a series of experiences that drove the message home: STOP! Whatever need was served by my two years of posting had been fulfilled.
Articulating views that challenge commonly-held beliefs is not a new experience for me, given what Michele and I have represented for several decades. The last two years were no different in that regard. What differed was the nature of the content. In 2020 when I began posting data and information about what I was learning I didn’t realize how much I would be challenging perceptions held by people who had been informed differently.
Our focus during the Lightsmith years was primarily on personal and planetary transformation including the dissolution of duality consciousness, yet we also noted parts of our collective story that were given less attention and are unfamiliar to many. What I perceived and posted about for two years is connected to structures of consciousness also being transformed, and how they are linked will become clear.
When talking about this time of change some people refer to a dimensional/frequency shift from 3D to 5D. Some talk about ascension. We have spoken of greater Source embodiment, a fusion of Light within Life, and have used the term New Field to mean a new dimensional structure of consciousness to which we are transitioning. We are all trying to reference something abstract for which adequate words are scarce, and in our attempts at simplifications we can skip over a large part of the story.
So, the question: What is the aspect of our collective experience that is seldom acknowledged or goes unrecognized even among those who speak of ascension, 5D and new earth, and why is it so difficult for much of humanity to perceive the kind of manipulation I recently spent two years of my life highlighting?
Okay, maybe that’s two questions, but the answer is both simple and profound: Consciousness on this planet was commandeered long ago by visitors who presented themselves as gods, considered themselves superior and claimed authority by decree and force.
We have all been subjugated to a matrix of control that has been purposely used for thousands of years to manipulate perception and misdirect the evolution of humanity.
During my time of posting I became aware that some people who know us thought we had somehow gotten “off the track”, in which case there may be some misunderstanding about what our track has been. At the core of the Lightsmith adventure was process work focused on deconstructing old consciousness along with various kinds of planetary assistance provided to help birth a new consciousness. Included in the deconstruction was not just “duality”, but what had been overlaid as a control matrix.
Orwell and Huxley wrote extensively on the methods of control used by authorities. Their books are popular with millions who nod their heads in agreement yet don’t see themselves as included in the ones being manipulated. In truth no one has been exempt…
AND MOST DON’T SEE IT.
The systems of control and extraction appear normal to us because we were born into those systems and have embodied them. Our parents, grandparents and generations of ancestors were all born into this matrix.
We are told “this is how it is”, even as our senses tell us that something fundamental is off as we rail against schemes of control and extraction. We may feel the distortions yet grudgingly accept what we are told, projecting our emotions onto perceived causes but never quite feeling we have resolved an issue at its core. It’s crazy-making, literally.
We don’t realize how much interference we continually bump up against that is generated by those who have mastered the art of sculpting illusion as reality. The matrix will never allow any real solutions that would expose itself as the source of the very issues we wish to resolve.
The aptly-titled film The Matrix offered a visual metaphor of how illusion can be perceived as real while something else is actually happening. The essential plot is that humans live in a simulated reality while they are actually being used as an energy source for a machine-world controlled by artificial intelligence. In the story choosing “the blue pill’ allows one to continue in the illusion. Choosing “the red pill” reveals underlying truths.
The story is complete with ruthless agents who protect against threats to the system, those threats being people who become unplugged from the illusion. The analogy works, with key differences being that our illusions are controlled perceptions, and the intelligence creating the stories we are fed is not artificial. And, of course, our story has a much different ending.
What follows is sourced from information we have received since the creation of Lightsmith in 1994, all of which has been previously shared by us. No new information has been added, though perhaps a new understanding is now possible. My intention is to connect dots since few are familiar with all we have published over the past 28 years. Of necessity this post is extremely condensed and is meant to be a commentary not a book, so full context is missing and questions raised may outnumber answers. I will share original sources where I can for those wishing to explore further.
Our origin story is a love story, magnificent and complex, born of an intention set by the Source of creation to experience itself in form. The descent into duality, density and materialization made individuation possible and established the framework for evolving a form in which a full embodiment, a fusion of Light and Life, could occur. Earth is where this particular experiment of consciousness has been taking place, and humans are that form.
The United States is sometimes referred to as a melting pot, a place where various peoples of earth came together with the potential to create something beyond what might arise out of a single culture. The intention for Earth was similar, to be a kind of melting pot where the many disparate aspects of consciousness evolved in the universe(s) could be woven in a new tapestry, a form that functions as a whole yet with individuated aspects, simultaneously co-creative yet effecting fulfillment for each of those individuations.
The Great Feminine, the Yin aspect of Source in the guise of the Earth Mother, took on the task of weaving together the attributes of consciousness that were drawn here, and it is She whose intention was to evolve a being within which fusion could happen, where the fullness of Spirit could merge deeply within a materialized body of consciousness.
The Earth was opened to all. Some aspects, however, could not or would not weave in, denying the source of their own being and considering themselves superior to others they encountered. Some of them were skilled in genetic engineering, using their capacities to experiment with insertion of their own DNA into various beings evolved by earth.
The engineered human was designed to serve these ones who presented themselves as “gods” that were accepted as such because of their differences in appearance, arrival from the skies and advanced technical capabilities. Patriarchy was born and abdication of self to external authority was established.
The Story of Creation
A Creation Story
The 2020 Channeling
Virtually every major social structure and institution we know today has been built on a hierarchy of position and privilege, ultimately reaching today’s state of complete corruption as those who, over time, became power brokers and took control. They are the downline from lineages of the self-designated superior ones.
They maintain dominance through bribery, coercion, psychological manipulation, creation of monetary systems, exploitation of resources, genetic manipulations of food and humans, counter-productive “health” protocols, and deliberate acts of trauma designed to exploit emotions and generate feelings of overwhelm, fear and helplessness. They continually orchestrate events to capture the attention and energy of humanity, transferring that energy to themselves in numerous forms that include money, property, possessions, resources, and reasons to claim greater authority while further tightening control over all aspects of life.
Meanwhile food, air, water, humans, other creatures and all living systems are subjected to endless infiltrations of toxic and profitable poisons introduced in the name of goodness, abundance, health and planetary stewardship. Corporations morph into governments, and institutions including education, medicine, energy, transportation, and food production became subservient to those governments with those in ultimate control remaining behind the proverbial curtain. All has been designed to enslave humanity in the name of freedom while extracting energy from our lives in the forms of time, money, physical labor and allegiance to authority.
Energy is generated by focusing our attention in ways that evoke emotional responses, usually into whatever distraction can be orchestrated, staged and presented through their multi-faceted media and information outlets. They who harvest our energies determine global policies, create financial windfalls for a select few and manipulate people through endless social engineering and the stoking of polarities. They induce cheering for the condemnation of others, sell endless wars while profiting from both sides, and think nothing of employing genocidal programs in the name of democracy and world peace.
Distractions are further inflamed to produce desired social reactions, or to generate fixation on politicians, political parties, engineered social injustices or convenient “others” blamed for whatever is the scripted crisis of the day. Those working the matrix are pleased to have us believing that Democrats/Republicans, Muslims/Christians, Capitalists/Socialists or Whatever/Whatever are at the root of all that ails us. The matrix will always distract, distort, deflect, deny and blame using the time-worn stratagem of keeping attention focused anywhere except at the mechanism driving those beliefs.
Not for much longer.
We’re on the final page of the last chapter of a very long story. Light energy of great intensity is pouring onto the planet, vibrating into and illuminating the farthest corners of the blackest shadows. Those who thrive in the darkness are becoming visible as places to hide grow scarce. They are panicking, doubling down on efforts to manipulate, relying on a formula that once seemed infallible: Create Crisis, Assume Authority, Provide Solution, Reap Benefits. Repeat. We’re witnessing the last hurrah of the dying patriarchy, whose motto has been “We Know What’s Best for You”. In truth what they do is destroy everything they touch.
What’s the good news? Systems born of the matrix are collapsing posthaste, even as those who built them make valiant but fruitless attempts to position themselves against the irresistible forces of transformation and change. A great reset is surely coming, though not the one envisioned by those who have been establishing means for the ultimate control of humanity.
I know I am not alone in my impatience about how swiftly this transformation is occurring, but that’s a human reaction to circumstances we can’t change. I do understand that we’re in a process that has sequence and timing, and that Universe is in charge. Yet, a culmination point has been reached and the substrate of a reality is quickly dissolving. Our lived experience of that dissolution can be challenging, if not terrifying.
Making peace with the unknown is the order of the day. I know, easier said than done given the endless doomsday scenarios minds like to run. If I get pulled away from observation and into drama I eventually notice my feeling of agitation and where my attention went. At that point I bring my focus back to what I have found supportive and trustworthy. I remember the miracles that have touched my life, things that arrange that I never could have orchestrated for myself, and personal experiences of a kind that anyone else might judge as fiction.
I will share three significant points of reference that I use to extract myself from whatever pulls my attention into drama, which can happen by interacting with either the echo chamber of media telling me how bad things are and how I should feel about it, or some of the “truthers” who tell me how bad things are going to be and what I should do about it. Both use energies of fear as motivation for action. Neither allow for another option.
First, I draw on one of the most powerful experiences of my life from a day in 1995 when Michele brought through the ineffable energy of Source. We later shared the message as A Choice for Love.
I return often to these words:
“This jewel of my heart [Earth] has been for many ages an experiment for those who have chosen to be upon Her for the purpose of their soul’s evolution. Those who have chosen love will now be elevated to that which is my heart place, for they are those who know the integrity of my intent and the power, and beyond that, of my love. The jewel of my heart, therefore, is resonant and shining in their hearts. They are then the jewel of my heart as well, for there is no separation, for they have embodied it. They have become it, and they are then most precious to me.”
“This is the planet of my heart. It cannot be that what is against love can remain. Those who have chosen against or away, given opportunity after opportunity, will no longer be able to share in the experiment in this place where I opened my heart and I have given all I could give to those who were willing to receive.
“The shadows are all manifestations of choices away from love. This is the planet of my heart. It cannot be that what is against love can remain. The time is now that these ones will begin to be removed, for they tarnish the jewel of their own heart, covering it and covering the jewel that is to shine in the universe for all to see. For that is the intent, and that which has been ordained.”
Regarding shadows and choices, a unique self-sorting has begun. Those who would like further explanation can follow this link: The Great Sorting
Second, I once wrote a commentary titled The Things I Can’t Tell You About. That reference was to glimpses of what is taking place at the levels of cause, where what comes into manifestation is first energetically created or dissolved before moving into or out of the material level. Causal-level shift was the basis of all the transformative work during Lightsmith events, and was at the heart of Michele’s client work for 40 years.
The Things I Can’t Tell You About are not mine to share, and I would never be able to provide adequate context or explanation. But to anyone still experiencing fear about the future of humanity, I offer what assurance I can based on all I have been involved with and learned during my time with Michele, including those things I can’t tell you about.
Life will not be controlled. Humans can be psychologically manipulated, Life cannot. Humans can become bound to beliefs, Life cannot. Humans have been taught to surrender their inner knowing to external authority, Life recognizes no such relationship.
This planet is receiving assistance of the most extraordinary nature, and we are being offered an equally extraordinary choice. We have a unique opportunity to partner fully with Life, fusing into a new experience of creation beyond all we have known. This adventure, however, may not be for everyone. We’re in a time of transition between worlds, so to speak, and souls are choosing how they wish to continue their evolutionary journeys as they release from a matrix that is rapidly dissolving.
Third, I am sustained by personal awareness gleaned of lived experiences. This is not the place for long stories of global projects, personal journeys, significant time spent in dialogue with various wise beings, or what it’s like to live with a practical mystic. I only know that I have been a participant in a planetary adventure that has informed me directly through unforgettable moments of miracles, marvel and revelation.
It is unlikely that those who commandeered consciousness on this planet truly know what they’re up against, but I do think they realize their grip is slipping and are feeling impotent against the forces reclaiming this planet. At this point their manipulations grow more erratic and obvious, and they have nothing to lose by pulling out all stops in attempts to maintain their position.
For us, external chaos may be our experience for a while as we continue to sense the dissolution of what once felt more solid. Though it may not be visible, within that field of increasing chaos is vibrational patterning of what is yet to come into greater form. People are already in place within the field, holding the tone and vibrating the living matrix of the new creation. Timing is not exactly predictable, but we have clearly entered a unique moment of our evolutionary process that is well underway, irreversible, unstoppable, and accelerating. We all chose to be here during this moment. So it is.
This commentary has been a wee glimpse into a connection between our past and our present. The past is not a place to dwell, but rather a place about which to become conscious to help frame what is happening now and to help understand the need for the dissolution we are experiencing. We cannot further expand within the bounds of a structure specifically designed to limit that expansion.
While we can’t know what is yet to bloom within the new creation, our events during the Lightsmith years brought us a sense of qualities that the New Field will bring into our experience, and we learn more each day as our process continues. That content will be grist for future updates.
Whatever name we give to what is taking place, it remains our view that the intention set into motion eons ago by Source is indeed coming to fulfillment. Of that I am confident.
On we go,
P.S. You will not find this viewpoint on the nightly news.

A wonderful surprise to read this new commentary-history tonight! I just have a couple of comments:
I’ve wondered for a long time about the lineage of the beings who took control over humanity. Seems to infer that the people running the current corrupt programming are not actually human beings? Hmmm…
My other comment is just an acknowledgement of you stating that we are at the very end of the last chapter of this dark period for humanity. This made me think back to Y2K, 22 years ago, how we thought that was the end of the old system, and then came 2012. Here we are in 2022, still with no clear end in sight. I do agree that there will be considerably more chaotic energies ahead in days to come.
In the meantime, we will continue to allow God’s light and love to radiate through and anchor into our beloved Mother Earth. Blessings and thanks to you and Michelle. 🙏💖🌟🕊️🙏
I cannot thank you enough for this, Chris. You had me on “sudden need to nap” and proceeded to illuminate deeper and higher as you went. I shall hang on to these words which renew my beliefs that have lately needed reinforcement. In love, thank you.
Thank you so much for this piece. I have been feeling very alone in my world view, and even within the general community on ‘this side of the divide’, it is challenging to find people able or willing to explore the spiritual foundations of the story playing out on earth. I found you on FB and deeply appreciate what you shared in the past and how your view has helped expand mine. Today, I am feeling stronger in my openness to uncertainty after starting my day with your reflections and insight; deep gratitude.
Many Blessings on you and Michele.
Thank you so much, Chris, for your profound message! It was indeed a special article to read and reflect on in so many ways. I was impressed with your pulling many pieces together and then articulating when they no longer felt appropriate. We are certainly in changing times and it is beginning to feel more urgent. I want you to know I appreciate your article and will look forward to the arrival of the next one you put together! Tusen Tak!
PS My email is in the process of change, but if you have a response, I am still getting the mail though I get “put in a valid address”.
Dearest Chris, This piece has given me such clarity that I have longed for. All the pieces woven together has been so deeply felt in my core but not having an awareness of how or why. Reading this has helped me open my chest and take a deep breath like the ones I have taken just before my children have been born . The deep knowing ….We are almost done with the pain, contracting, exhaustion, soon we will be one with the new life we have long to be with surrounded by unconditional love and peace. Thank you for sharing ! Your words light up the field . So much LOVE to you and Michele.
Thank you Chris, your writing is riveting and inspiring. I am grateful for the perspective that the fatigue, vibrations, and general sense of experiencing a changing body is part of a larger wave of change. Committing to staying the course with kindness and gentleness and love to the best of my ability to do so is grounding. Yes, I chose to be here now.
A brilliant piece…articulated beautifully. The “jewel of my heart” paragraphs brought tears to my eyes! as the words were so tender and precious. Reading this felt like receiving a gift. Thank you so much Chris and Michelle. With love.
