This is Ashtar Sheran with a message to update you on the proceedings of Liberation of Planet Earth.
As you await the RV, speculation abounds as to what is required before the monies are released and the zim notes can be cashed. What is required is that your world be GESARA compliant. Yes. Nothing less than.
Your world must be at peace, your world must be cooperating with Trump and the Alliance forces. Your world must be rid of all key cabal players, in order for the RV funds to be released.
As for your nuclear armaments and your fear of a third world nuclear war, do not listen to any reports that this would be likely, as all armaments have been disarmed and reproduction of any such forces are being stopped by those of the Galactic Federation. If you believe that your world leaders are capable of disengaging from nuclear war since the McCarthy era, since post-WWII, you give them too much credit. Your world was slated for nuclear destruction many years ago, but we of the Federation stepped in and stopped it.
Do not give your world leaders credit for being the peacemakers they might now appear to be. We have their arms securely held behind their backs as they are forced into GESARA compliance (he means they must comply or they'll be arrested). These leaders will be changed up in time, for new leaders chosen to lead your world into a new era of peace. There is enough “dirt” on any of your leaders to land them into Guantanamo Bay so in order to merit a reduced sentence, many of them have decided to cooperate with those of the Light. Not all, but we are working to that end. Those who refuse GESARA compliance will be removed. Your days of service-to-self governments are now ending as your world sees new light.
We regret that it has taken this long for the RV to roll out on all levels, however it is necessary to protect those who will be the new dispensers of wealth and economic stability upon your planet. Those who seek to provide income to the poor, healthcare to the sick, and wares to the needy would be seen as the new enemy of the cabal, therefore the cabal's numbers should be reduced to insignificance before the RV can be funded to these lightworkers.
We are beginning operations of cleaning your pollution, your nuclear waste, and ridding your world of armaments so that there will be no opportunity to use them against you again. Your world is turning a corner. All reparations are made in accordance with the collective frequency of your planet as you rise higher into the Light.
Any reporting of attacks against you or your cities in any way are false dark reports. We of the Light do not attack those who we serve, who share our ancestral DNA. We do not attack those we see as our royalty.
We are here to liberate you so that you can become the divine beings you were meant to be. So you can take your rightful place in the Light with wide open loving hearts. We salute those lightworkers making the efforts to raise their frequency and to help others to do so as well, in these confusing times of confusing reports.
Our intentions remain positive for all timelines. More plans will be undertaken to help those who are intent on experiencing a less fortunate reality.
It will all make sense in the end. Please be patient.
Me: Ivo, we need to discuss this again. I think we've already done a video on personalizing but a reminder needs to go out. This would stop a lot of the lightworker infighting right in its tracks.
Ivo; This is true, my love. Your people personalize your conversations with others. This leads to the ego being triggered, and ensuing arguments. By comparison, what if you looked at the weather?
Me: LOL Yeah, it's raining here right now at the end of March and we're expecting an ice storm today. So what if I said, instead of, “It's raining now and it's supposed to ice over today,” I said, “It's raining now and it's supposed to ice over today. Why is it doing this to me?” Well, it's not of course. It's just doing what it's doing without taking me into consideration. So why personalize conversations? People are just doing what they're doing without taking you into consideration. Even when the conversation is directed at you.
I'm trying to keep this simple. We said that people personalize what others say, even about them, which they shouldn't do. People tend to automatically put a “to me” at the end of others' statements.
So for example, Ivo, someone is on social media and another person puts up a comment and I was just in this the other day. It was about the 4D/5D lightworker and how some 5D's seem to think themselves as “higher up” than the 4D's, hence assigning less value to the role of the 4D lightworker. Of course, we all know that frequency is impersonal – it's just your frequency but there's probably an implication that they achieved 5D by being of better character.
Someone put that up and another lightworker went after her like a barracuda after its breakfast. This person's attack mentality was launched because she personalized that statement because inherently she probably believes that she is “less than” others in some ways and doesn't like to be reminded of her own feelings of inadequacy. If she didn't have them, she wouldn't have personalized the comment and read her own meaning into it. However attacking someone isn't a good way to show others you're of high moral character. LOL
Ivo: Yes, that is true. People are triggered by others' comments due to their own feelings about themselves, not because the other person even knows anything about them. The attacker was triggered by her own feelings of inadequacy. And it is totally avoidable by simply not adding the personalization, “How does this comment pertain to me?” while reading it. It is simply a comment. If the commenter is in fact that egotistical that they see the role of the 5D lightworker as superior to the 4D lightworker, they will not be going to 5D anyway. They are deluding themself.
So in order to avoid arguing between lightworkers, the best tact to take is to stop personalizing all comments. However it is what you react to you then have to heal. Perhaps ask yourself, “What can I get from this?” rather than, “What does this say about me?”
If you react to another's comment, you begin a self-searching function in order to determine whether in fact there is any truth to this. Those of humility will use their own reaction to admit fault and gain self mastery; while those of ego will attack and begin a denial process.
Me: So let's go over some other scenarios to help lightworkers learn to disengage from their attack function. Because from what I see, it's really getting crazy with lightworkers fighting and arguing all the time. We're supposed to be on the same team. Although by having us all working on our issues strenghtens our lightwork and our whole team, it sure doesn't feel like it. It has a divisive effect.
Ivo: It does. You are not seeing it for what it is – all are gaining self mastery through arguing with each other, but in the same time, it is creating loosh and holding back progress as well.
Me: So it sounds like a self-defeating process.
Ivo: Which, in fact, life upon your planet has been for many millenia, thanks to your dark controllers.
Me: True. There has to be a better way.
Ivo: Understand that a comment is simply a comment that one makes, and it does not pertain to you. For starters. Stop personalizing it. Understand that if you do react to a comment, then it is up to you to work through your reaction to it – ON YOUR OWN – as opposed to engaging the commenter in an argument. Take pen and paper, or a fresh word document, and write down your reaction to the comment, how you feel about the comment, and what it indicates about you, not about the other person – about you – because you are the reactor. Does it indicate that you are fearful, doubtful, shameful, angry... what does it tell you about yourself? And then understand what it is that is lacking within you. If you are angry, perhaps you require patience to be more loving. If you are doubtful then you need more confidence. Your reaction is simply showing you what you lack and by working with it you will come to understand more about how you can develop yourself towards self mastery and unconditional lovingness.
Me: True. So how about some examples. I've got many of being attacked... Let me see.
The one who left my group with a parting shot, calling me “McArthur,” clearly indicated that she was feeling restrained in my group and couldn't live up to the high standards of being respectful and not arguing with others in the group. Case in point, her parting insult.
I had to consider if in fact, I am as controlling as she was indicating. I have high behavioural standards, that's for sure. I believe all can interact respectfully but still honestly with others. I don't see why that would be a problem but I've been proven wrong on many occasions. I was being asked to provide a safe attack-free environment by the people in the group. And that's my personal preference as well because I really don't think much of people who attack others; in fact they're energy vampires and toxic to boot, so I don't want to be around them.
I've spent much of my life in their company and now have chronic fatigue because of it, so I'm not big on having them around. Also as an empath, I'm very affected by negative energy I pick up off of others. So I'll just keep on Mcarthuring like I always do. I think it's the right way to go for now. The day that negativity has no effect on me anymore, and I do think that's possible even for an empath, I may stop McArthuring.
I believe there are levels of awareness. Unconditional love being a very high level, yet attainable.
Let's see, what's another example?
Ivo: What of the 4D/5D lightworker – where the 5D lightworker implies they are of more value than the 4D lightworker? Yes, you came across that on Rick's post the other day where a 4D opened fire and attacked a person claiming to be a 5D lightworker but stating their opinion in a way without humility. The other lightworker was triggered but need not have been had they not personalized the message. They read it as an insult. When perhaps it was not intended to be. When you add the “to me” or “What is this saying to me?” Or “What is this saying about me?” you are personalizing the message when in this case it was not personalized at all.
May I remind all that you are not here to fix others – you are here to master yourselves. It is simply who you see as being the problem – yourself or others. Your negative reaction indicates that you are the one holding the issue and this must be rectified.
Me: Yes. Good point, Ivo.
Personalizing is like driving and thinking the person who hit your bumper did it to piss you off. Of course they don't want to hit your bumper. Personalizing is like going to the store and buying a toy only to find it defective and saying that the store did that to annoy you. Personalizing is like saying your boss has it in for you when they treat everyone the same way. Don't be fooled, though, by the person who knows how to wangle their way around the boss' ego and kiss up to them, they'd still be treated poorly if they weren't so manipulative. I've seen this time and time again in the workplace.
Ivo: What must be worked on is the habit of personalizing because it is a function of the ego. The ego asks, “What does this say about me?” when you were not involved in its conception at all. The ego asks, “How will this affect me?” when you are actually so powerful you will only be affected if you choose to be. You create your own reality. The ego asks, “What does this person think about me?” when if you ask them they had not considered you at all. The ego makes itself front and center in everything. Every little thing. And that is why it argues. It insinuates itself in every conversation and creates discord when triggered. It is the personal responsibility of all to attempt to overcome this bad habit and to get along with others because that is what most desire upon your earth – a peaceful, loving world. Be part of the solution, not part of the problem. Keep your ego in check. Stop fighting with others and heal yourselves.
Me: Thank you Ivo.
Ivo: My love, my rose bud.
Me: I know. With the thorns still on the stem. I'm working on these thorns. Or am I personalizing your comment? LOL
Ivo: You have the option of seeing my vision of you in any way you like. You prefer to see yourself as one who still has faults to resolve, but you see yourself as the blooming rose as well. You see yourself on a path of growth and this is desirable.
Did the wash this morning, washed sheets. I can STILL smell the residue of my neighbour's laundry soap from the washer I used which belongs to the landlord, not me, from a few weeks ago. Her washer broke down and she used the landlord's with her poisonous stinky laundry soap. I ran a wash of just vinegar in it to try to break the smell down, but then it's not really an organic is it? It's a chemical. So what breaks down chemical perfumes, I don't know.
It helped but I can smell her laundry soap on my sheets. This will probably aggravate my chemical sensitivity. Ivo says that I shouldn't move before I glean all I can learn from the situation I have with my upstairs neighbour otherwise it's just going to happen again until it's resolved.
I learned today that because my needs are out of the ordinary, because of my heightened sensitivity, I don't get too much sympathy from anyone who doesn't have these extraordinary needs and who doesn't live from the heart. I learned that until I create my own space that caters to my health and sensitivity needs, I most likely won't have any rest around this issue.
Until I own my own space, I'll have to put up with non-sympathetic others and people who just will do whatever they want regardless of how it affects those around them.
Moving is not a possibility because I don't have the money to. When I move I don't expect things to be any better unless I should move into a green community or my own place.
Me: Ivo, I don't know how many people who are annoyed with me, search the internet to find some way to contact me just so they can get in a parting shot. Perhaps they don't realize this, but it's what you'd call a psychic attack, and if you do this to people, you're part of the problem, not the solution.
The fact is, not everyone is going to appreciate you as much as you do yourself. I realize that. Some people can't stand me. That's fine. Lightworkers don't all love each other. They have their opinions of others but another fact is, the worse you feel towards someone, the worse you feel as well because what you put out comes back to you. It frustrates me that people don't understand Universal law to even this extent.
If you go around taking shots at people who don't want to deal with you, then you're only confirming their initial intuitions in the first place. You have an attack mentality. You're coming from ego.
Because I'm in this position as a wayshower, people believe I have to act perfectly while they can behave any way they want to. All are responsible for their behaviour at all times. That is universal law and one of the means with which you can ascend by – by living from the heart and being kind to all others, not the ego which can tell you to attack. The ego's frequency aligns with the third dimension and you'll reincarnate there if you don't change the way you behave and stop attacking others.
So this falls in with universal law – you get what you put out. If you hold others up to a high standard but not yourself, there's a problem you need to look at. You're living a double standard based on your own lack of integrity and irresponsibility. Be cognizant of the fact that some can pick this information up about you intuitively and they will be forewarned. Because I do that – I get intuitions about many things.
I suppose some people don't appreciate that I see it so well and tell it like it is, but I do. My father was like this. He held us kids up to impossible standards of perfection, while he had rage outbursts and chronic meltdowns all his life – until he went on a spiritual quest, and his change in behaviour was a miracle because we finally had some peace in the house. Thank you, Jesus (A Course in Miracles). Maybe he did have some peace in the end. He needed it.
Ivo: Yes, you do get attacked a lot, my love. And you realize that cutting cords is a big help because this severs your tie from the vampire who is draining your energy. Because this is what attack behaviours are about: vampiring energy.
Me: It amazes me the lengths some people go to get a shot in. Why don't they just drop it?
Ivo: They need the energy to survive. Their ego is fighting back to re-erect itself – to make itself right again after its perceived attack on it by you.
Me: I wish they'd realize that doing some work on yourself will get you to a wonderful state of peace where you have no desire to attack others. Because it feels amazing to be there and understand you need nothing.
Ivo: It does. You are agreeing with these ascension energies.
Me: I got off Facebook. It's too busy for this empath and I pick up too much dealing with so many people unfortunately.
Ivo: You will heal. You are aware of your leaky aura and that you have limitations as to how many people you can deal with and still stay grounded.
The fact that your world is going through much turmoil now does not help. People are seeking energy sources and fighting the change that is being presented to them.
Me: True. It's kind of “do it now or never,” isn't it?
Ivo: With the higher energies, yes, it is. Now you are being forced to change since Gaia has moved up into the fourth dimension. There is no languishing in underdeveloped spirituality anymore. It has been foisted upon you – all of you. And the higher energy beings are being attacked, and empaths are feeling it all as well.
Me: I know. One thing I figured out about moods is you can change them in a second. If you're in a bad mood, just think of someone you love. Your partner. Your child. Your puppy. That's it. Mood changed. Heart chakra re-opened. People have far more control over their moods than they believe they do. It's Alchemy, really. The greatest control is reacting in the manner you choose to as opposed to what's typically done or how you've been taught to react.
Ivo: Yes. So we are learning to let go with love.
Me: I was always good at rational understanding because I can track a reaction back to something in my past and why I would've attracted it – to help myself heal from the initial wound. Like I said, my father was the biggest troll ever in my life. And I was a confused little kid. I wish I'd known about cord cutting then.
Ivo: It would have helped. The way forward is always to let go with love. Understand that role the person is playing in your life to help you attain self mastery – to become more loving, even of those who attack you. That does not, however, mean that you need to maintain relations with that person. Anyone who drains your energy is no friend and we do not support your relating to people who do so as they are stealing energy, your life force and this too, is a violation of universal law.
To let go in love is the wisest route to take. Having compassion for this person who is most likely a frightened, low energy being who has made a life out of maligning others who do not give him what he wants.... that is very sad. Unfortunately very common as well. To hold others up to high standards as he seeks the parenting he did not receive as a child, yet still behaving as a child himself. That is what is happening with this current case. A person who has learned that his needs do not matter and when you refuse to deal with him, this pain arises within him again. A trigger. Yes. And so have compassion for this child whose needs were not met and release him with love. If not the adult, see him as a child who is in need. This may help.
Me: Well, he started on the wrong foot, making personal comments directed towards me instead of the subject of the post. If you're interested in learning what we have to say, read the post, don't make your comment about me personally. Who I am shouldn't even matter. The information (Light) I'm relaying is more important.
Ivo: He was showing his nature at the onset. He was making your relationship personal, not a learning relationship. This got your back up.
Me: Seeing as I get this all the time (which I need to stop affirming). And then he did exactly what I figured he'd do – he attacked me when I didn't respond the way he wanted. This is another thing you have to consider: I get stalkers too so I'm very aware of inappropriate behaviour and interest in me.
So I see I got what I figured I'd get, I attracted it. And I do feel sorry for him, not enough to let him back in, but I feel sympathy. And it has to be done with every single person. Even if you have to guess – or make up a scenario for them based on what many experience as children in our world – lack, be it lack of love, or lack of parenting, lack of many things.
Ivo: Understand that you did your part to help in his self mastery as well, provided he makes the effort. And it is not your place to decide whether he will or not based on your estimation of his character – just understand you tried. You tried in love. For everything is love.
Me: Except matrix domination – you said before that that was too much negativity and it does no good anymore for the ascension of humanity.
Ivo: Yes. But interacting between two people, even if painful like this, is an attempt of both parties to trigger healing in each other – yes, it is love in action (see our video). Or what you soul wants for you (see our other video). Personal growth, personal mastery, love for all, even for those who would attack you.
Me: It's pretty cool.
Ivo: It is. It is also living by universal law, and if you understood that you attract what you need to heal then you will understand this transaction (Law of Attraction). If you understand that you get what you put out, you will understand how to limit being mistreated (Law of Compensation). If you understand that all repeats until it is healed, then you will understand universal law and see it working in your life (Law of Attraction).
Me: It's good you said that, Ivo, because I sense people are annoyed they attract this kind of attention. You said, “You attract what you need TO HEAL,” and that's important to remember – you can heal from any situation you undergo during the day.
Ivo: The end goal is to walk away in love. Open your heart for those who are hurting and for yourself. Do not allow them to continue to steal your energy, though. Cut cords, understand the lesson, feel love and compassion for the other. Do not call them a “perpetrator,” a “jerk” or any other slur or insult because this only enforces old matrix thinking: that you have been attacked and that you must attack back. Understand all are here by God's divine will and that all are divine beings of god. Surrender to your own divinity and you will see the divinity in others.
Me: There's one more thing I want to tell the listener and that is that I'm not the perfect person you're looking for. That perfect person you seek is yourself – your higher self.
Ivo: You are here on this earth now to embody your higher self as you ascend. You are here to bring divinity back to earth in the form of the embodied human, to become Homo Divinicus. You are here undergoing this ascension process to become a new form of human being, more evolved than homo sapiens. You are here to remove everything from you that does not align with your higher self. It can be a painful process but attempt to breathe through it and have patience with yourself. It can be messy.
With that, I will leave you my love. I await you always, my di von Aquila (Divine Eagle)
Me: That's Ashtar's name for me! You have to make up your own! LOL
Me: With the exception of advice from another member of the Lightworker community, think about it, all the advice you get will have the potential to lower your vibration. Why? Because it is all matrix-based.
On my personal Facebook page, I put up a post about my allergy to the fragrance in detergents, and someone I never hear from and had forgotten about, turned up and said that she likes to have her clothes smell to these fragrances and I should work out a compromise with my upstairs neighbours, who have the right to wash their clothes in as smelly a detergent as they wish.
Yes, they do have that right, but they also have to compromise with other tenants. I don't play Deep Purple at ear-splitting decibels at 12 a.m. Although I'd like to.
What my point is, is that advice giving is toxic behaviour right there. There's an automatic assumption I don't know how to deal with my problems. In fact, I didn't ask for any advice on that part of the post – I was telling people that there are people out there with extreme allergies to this perfume in laundry soap. That was the point of the post. Yes, I've realized it's how I write things that sometimes gets me the responses I don't want, too. If I don't give the details of the personal problem, the advice givers don't pop up.
Typically, the vampiric advice giver will overlook the point of the post, assume you don't have the situation in hand or the ability to deal with your own life, and attempt to help you from their supposed higher perspective. There's your vampire. I watch carefully for others who position themselves superior to me in my own life.
But then I came up with another realization: since I'm a lightworker and not here to become part of the system, but to bust the system, I will always have a problem with advice because it's based on what they learned in the system. Ivo has told me about these laundry soaps and on top of their odor being extremely noxious, the oils in these soaps adhere to your clothes and then leech into the skin. So you're absorbing toxins when you wash in this stuff.
Laundry soap has changed over the years. I couldn't stand to be in that aisle of the grocery store 30 years ago, never mind now. I've always had a problem with it. At least now I don't get migranes from it. Which is another thing many lightworkers have – extreme chemical sensitivity.
But going back to the broader point I was making, as a lightworker, ANY advice that is based in the system we're living in is going to be bad advice for me. I'm a wayshower, making my way into a new future that I'm one of the first creators of. What say you, Ivo?
Ivo: My love, you are correct. There are things you must learn to create an understanding around, such as advice giving, that leave you feeling peaceful, not disturbed. Why? Because you, as the lightworker, must understand that these things will never be any good for you, will never work for you for exactly the reason you specified: You are not of the system you live in. You never were and you never will be. Right now you are thinking of what you will call the “alternative” community you plan to start – where like minded people can live in harmony according to their new higher values of respecting the earth, respecting and loving each other and being in harmony with the cosmos. Because these will be multi dimensional people.
As you seek your own kind, those who speak to E.T.s, angels, higher dimensionals, you put aside those who are living in third dimensional ways of life. It is simply part of the process.
You and other lightworkers must come to terms with the fact that energy vampiring is a third dimensional tactic and there are many ways to accomplish the stealing of energy from another, however this is NOT the way going forward for those who are multidimensional. The way going forward for you is to step into your own power and to spread love rather than to steal life energy from another.
You have always had a problem with critics and advice givers, from your early days when your parents would give you advice and you instantly knew it was wrong.
Me: Yeah, I remember that! LOL Like the guys my father wanted me to date!
Ivo: Yes, you wanted to date me, and you were looking for me in every man you dated. However, you did not remember enough of who I was. You had a vague feeling that there was someone for you yet you knew very few details. This was something you slowly woke up to. And it was a painful process as you cast aside one man after the next, finding him not meeting up to your expectations. And your expectations were of finding me.
Me: True. I did fall for a starship captain at one point – Captain Kirk! LOL It wasn't personal though, I was only 8 years old.
Ivo: Yes, you met men who met some of the requirements but not all. If you look back through your love history you will find the ones you liked most had some qualities that reminded you of me, such as Captain Kirk's being a starship captain. You were often attracted to Nordic type men for obvious reasons – you felt at home with them. You were looking for yourself the entire time, my love, and those who attempted to teach the system to you became your enemies because you interpreted their behaviour as attempting to stand in your way. The fact that your parents indulged in such abusive behaviour disguised the fact that you were doing this.
Me: I had a thing for hippies and rock-n-rollers because of their long hair. I think Robert Plant came pretty close. LOL As it was I was headed to Sweden when I was in my 30's, thinking I'd find you there.
Ivo: We saved you the journey. I was not there either.
Me: I'm sure I'm not the only lightworker who spent their life trying to discover their galactic self on earth. I had a good time though. I really liked Europe. But getting back to our discussion.
Ivo: Yes, no advice coming from a non-multi-dimensional is geared towards your needs. It is about understanding your needs as a multi-dimensional and it is up to your community to help each other. It would be rather difficult for one whose soul is of earth to tell you what to expect as a Sirian soul because the Sirians live quite differently than earthlings have. That, of course, is the point in your being here.
Ivo: For one thing, perhaps others also perceive advice and its nasty colleague, criticism as an attempt to stop them from achieving what they must do. My dear, you always had that sense of “I have a mission” from your early days on. From your first book, you have always had a sense of you are here to do something, and perceived everyone around you as attempting to stop you. In fact, they were however they did not realize it.
You could never conform to the norm. Never. You are not what your western society considers normal, however you have become accustomed to seeing normal people as enemies. They are not. You are here to help them. They simply are doing what they have been taught, and what they continue to reinforce in each other. You are not here to behave as they do. And yes, your ego has raised its head to protect you. Simply do not allow these people into your space but do not become resentful, although, yes, I hear you telling me, Orin the ET Sanaya Roman channels, says that when you become resentful it is because people are not accepting your energy.
Me: Yup. So really Ivo, I have to find a new way to accept the Matrix and people who choose to live within it, just not for me. Those who are upholding the system and don't want to be part of the new aren't going to wake up and still will try to get into my face to tell me that their way of life is the right way for me too, which of course is wrong. But that's part of their way of life. .
Ivo: You, being a particularly strong lightworker, found you had a battle on your hands as a child. It was you against your parents. You must make peace with that way of looking at things. Still, do not have it in your life because it does not work for you, but understand you are not here to succumb to your system and become a part of it. You are here to change it.
Yes, there are many lightworkers who are at odds with family, friends and the system as they wake up. It is unfortunate that some must go through this process of finding the world so unloving, but it is an unloving world, in many respects. Perhaps personally you have fared better with more benevolent parents than Sharon had, but understand that your work lies in not being part of the system. You are here to become the butterfly from the caterpillar. You are here to teach others how to fly as well, but they will come when they are ready to learn from you, not before.
We do regret that you chose this experience – to be at odds with this world, but now it is time to learn to forgive with your new understanding of who you are and what you are meant to do here. Remove as much of this resistance from your life as you must in order to feel more at ease walking on this earth's soil.
Those who were raised in the lower dimensions understand a nasty view of earth's duality that those in the upper dimensions still do not understand, to this day. So do not criticize others who see life differently than yourself, that is what this message is about. They have chosen these challenges as part of their service to earth, and your need to criticize them for doing so is your challenge to become more loving as well.
Me: LOL. Yeah, I was “lower third!!” A lower third dimensional experience....
Ivo: Sharon has backed away from Facebook as she finds she encounters too much resistance and she has reacted to resistance in a particular unhealthy way all her life. She is now working on accepting that she must be at odds with the majority in this world and she seeks solace with us, as she is one of us. She has experienced much rejection in this life and it is definitely something she is not accustomed to, because our people do not treat her that way. She is actually much beloved by us.
This was all necessary for her to do her work now. She has led the warrior's path but now will make peace for her own sake. This you must do as well. Accept that you are different and that basically you walk alone. Your power and strength are with likeminded others; if not, then by yourself, not within the collective sleeping mentality of this earth or among others who would criticize you for being different from them.
Me: Criticizing someone for being different from yourself. Think about it. Think hard. Of course people are different from you. I believe it's mind control that makes people do this – criticizing others for being different.
Ivo: It is, my love. This has been pointed out to Sharon over and over and over again in her life – that she is different. That she does not fit in. She always felt like a misfit and she is the misfit, for lack of a better word. All lightworkers are. Some with lighter loads fit in more easily. Sharon will not repress who she is. She has too much power to do that anymore. She forges on and simply removes those who seek to distract her. Now that she is aware, she is more focused than ever. She is being led by us and you are being led by your team as well, whether you understand that or not.
Me: Yeah. Distractors. The dark threw a few of those at me as well. Tried to take me off my path. That didn't work.
Ivo: Accept that you are different. Accept that you do not fit in to the norm. Find others who will accept you and who will not try to change you. Make peace with your past as you understand who you are now. Tell your ego to stop defending you. There is nothing to defend. You have done nothing wrong. And many of you have been made wrong by others in the system all your lives. You are not wrong. Learn to love all, but understand that all cannot love you as you want them to. They are not here to meet your needs. You are here to help them learn how to meet their own. And we are here to help meet yours as we love you, as only we can.
It is a difficult road, this one of the Light worker, the light warrior, the wayshower. Yet it must be walked and the strong ones were chosen to do this. We knew it would not be easy. So did you. Much that is said in your psychology and your spirituality does not fit for you. Be discerning. Choose what works and what does not. Understand you are going through a process of great change and what worked one day will not work the next. Allow yourself to change. The only thing to expect is change, particularly now as we approach the pinnacle point of the Ascension process.
Me: Thank you Ivo.
Ivo: My love, you are with me and I am with you. We are inseparable of mind. I love you as I love myself.
Me: Hi Ivo, I've had the most tremendous experience these last few weeks! I archived my facebook group and opened my own forum which is still growing, and took a break. I have learned so much.
Ivo: I see this my love. You are in a much better frame of mind.
Me: I'm an empath and I thought for once in 3 years, I would pare back my interaction with others to absolute minimum so that I could understand how I feel at “default.” I want to understand which emotions are mine and which belong to others that I am feeling. I did put myself on a vitamin regime as well, so I think that helped, but I feel great. Absolutely alone and fantastic!
Ivo: Yes. You are. However you are still a transmuter and that is your work.
Me: I'm connecting with people little by little so that I'm not overwhelmed. I think that's the difference Ivo – not being overwhelmed by my interaction with others. Because I was. And I've learned social media is a good place to feel overwhelmed for this empath.
I was worried that I wouldn't have access to the news I was looking for to pass on to others so I still do go back on now and then but not nearly as much as before. I've also been reading my email subscriptions from my trusted sources like in5D.com (Gregg Prescott and his guest writers), James Gilliland (he's also a channeler and gets more intel on intervention than I do), Lisa Renee sends out a weekly or monthly newsletter so I see that in my inbox.
All the people I trust to give me the best news are doing what I do as well: going to their trusted sources and quoting them so I get the benefit of second hand news passed on to me, which I then pass on in my forum. It's such a great idea! Plus I get ideas on new books to buy to do more research. I love it!
I've learned so much. And I'm so grateful!
Ivo: Yes, and that is not the end of it, is it?
Me: No. Getting to the subject of this video – I've rested up and feel so peaceful. Then it dawned on me that that's the way of soul – to be at peace, to even work in peace, and that going forward I had to learn how to do this too.
I have had many decades of caffeine-fueled assaults on my inbox at 9:00 a.m., followed by 5:00 p.m. crashes into spaced-out oblivion. That's how I got the adrenal fatigue. I took that work model to some extent and applied it to what I'm doing now but I realize for best results if I want to do my soul's work, and I do, the best thing to do is to do it in the way my soul would – in peace and love.
Because I'm interested in addressing my adrenal fatigue problem, I realized too, that I had to stop working up adrenalin in my work. To do my work in peace would hopefully give my adrenals the break they would need to mend.
I've realized I have to take frequent breaks hourly, daily, and weekly. That was your prompting too so thank you for caring! I was doing none of that. I have accomplished a lot because the fourth book is almost done and we have a large library of videos. I also had a look at which were the most effective ways to get my message out and I realized that social media isn't because of the censorship I experience there. That means the people who want my message aren't getting it. To counter that I put my Facebook posts in my blog.
So going forward, interacting with others is fine, but not to the point of overwhelm and working on this is fine too but not to the point of stressing my adrenals. This is going to be interesting but the results are so worth it!! Just loving my life in peace.
Ivo: So this was a very worthwhile experience for you.
Me: It was and I want to share that with people: figure out what's not working for you, reduce or eliminate it, and go the way of your soul – in peace!! The love will come back on its own. Going the adrenalin fuelled way of the ego is just not worth it. It's running yourself into the ground. Do what you need to do. I make a list of what I want to do in future and it might or might not get done. If it's still a priority I'll do it. If not, I'll omit it.
Of course, we're never taught to rest and when the adrenals kick in, you don't want to rest. But you have to rest to get back to center – to peace and calm. That's when life feels best.
I thought I'd pass this message on to people who are doing too much. Find ways to eliminate work, get help, take breaks and stay centered in peace and love. It's the only way for me now.
Of course the old will temp me. I have a book I want to read and grill Akon on and it'll get done when it does. I have another project with him and Gladeela (Elizabeth Klarer) coming up and I want to work more with Adama, my man of love!!
But I have to pace myself.
Hope this reminder helps you too!
Lots of love and peace, Sharon and Ivo
From in5D, by Amanda Lorence:
"For our goal, our reason for coming here this incarnation, was not to stay in 3D or 4D. But to enter and live in 5D. To do so, we could not (can not) take any lower frequency energy with us. Because 5D has its own frequency bandwidth, which doesn’t include some of the lower dimensional frequency energies (measured in Hz) that are available to experience in the 3rd and 4th Dimensions. So the patterns have to be cleared, hence the so called lessons. They are not ‘lessons’. They were all gifts, for the individual to look within themselves, just themselves, and clear."
Ivo has taught me that 4D is like a bandwidth of energy. In the same way that your eyes will only see things in a certain range of the light spectrum, so will your physical mind and body be able to exist within the energetic spectrum of the fifth dimension - when you clear lower dimensional patterns. That is the ONLY way. Otherwise you stay in lower dimensions.
It's like if your cell phone is out of range of wifi frequencies you're not going to be able to connect via wifi.
There is no shame in staying in lower dimensions. It doesn't make you worse than others - it simply means that that's where you're to do your lightwork.
I think some have a case of escapism where they feel if they can get to 5D, they won't be subjected to the negativity of the lower dimensions. I believe until you can see the love in every action of life, you're not understanding the lower dimensions. Granted, 3rd and 4th dimension have gone beyond a useful capacity for this lesson learning love by becoming a death culture, and this is being corrected by the Light forces intervention.
All you have to do is open your heart and keep it open in all transactions. When you find something that shuts it, figure out why. That's the lesson and the energy you need to clear.
Still more explanation from Ivo:
all of what's to become our new system is guarded at this point. Gold reserves can't be stolen, mined or taken from us by the cabal
like we said, all negative factions are dead headed and the galactic federation have intel or are talking to them; they know what all factions are doing.
Cabal money is currently depleted. They're broke
They won't be able to raise enough now to helping themselves so the RV has to go through. The point of the RV is to create a system that is anti-dependent on the cabal, the end result of its implementation will be that they and their systems, will shrivel and die.
All cabal members are holding on to what money they have now, hoping the markets don't crash because then they'll be utterly worthless
As Ivo said, they're all making GESARA-based agreements with each other
Bill Gates, the Clintons, the Bushes, are still the puppets DESPITE what they've done – there's worse than them! These are just middle-management players!
Businesses are going under as you can see; US gov. Employees weren't paid during the shutdown
As Cabal members are arrested, their money and assets are seized and in lockdown, inaccessible by other cabal members
Because they want plea bargains, they turn in their bosses. All cabal members are automatically blackmailable because that's an initiation requirement into their system: with videotapes evidence of the initiate doing something that's indictable by law, which of course they've owned in the past as well.
What's key now is the surrender of the main stream media to the Galactic Federation. Working on it..
The Galactic Federation is also going after their off-world contacts, human and not, and trying them for the same crimes. This is a galactic issue, not one that just involves earth. There are chains to other planets
What we're aware of on earth is still small potatos: the GFL has the big picture.
Our planet is protected, our money is protected, our lives are protected. The GFL is setting up a new system for earth that's protected in spite of the presence of Cabal members and negative aliens on this planet.
The goal has not been to eliminate all negatives from the planet before the RV; it's to institute the RV and GESARA law IN SPITE of their presence. Earthlings will not be dependent on their systems anymore, and with the frequency nets around the planet they have nowhere to go nor can anyone come in to rescue them. They'll all be caught eventually.
The GFL knows all dark strategies, goals, bases and players
Dark portals being cut off now.
Basically, the RV is an F.U. System for the Cabal. Nobody will need to work because they'll have money. Because they'll need food supplies, there will have to be volunteers to go to work and provide foods. New systems will be set up to meet needs.
All the large food suppliers are being approached now.
With the discontinuation of “suiciding” those who are agents for the Light here to create new ethical businesses can do so without being taken out by the cabal. All Rothschild companies will fall because new healthy, ethical businesses will crop up. This is why the GFL went after the middle men first: because they're the workers who keep the false system going, they're the workers who kill those starting new green businesses and those trying to change our medical systems to something that actually improves our health. That's why the top men weren't taken out first, but the middle men, the workers who uphold the system. We know whose at the bottom – we are – but we're going to get a new system.
Governments are now becoming GESARA compliant and will soon be working for the people – not against them. New leaders will be elected and these will be ethical leaders.
Benevolent Ets have better food growing systems than we do. Some of those systems will be implemented through earth agents, as mentioned above, which will overtake the current malevolent growing/manufacturing processes. Replication technology is coming as well.
Human agents of the Light (real earthlings this time! Woo hoo!) will take their place at the top of company and government systems
It's all planned and designed already
They've made a point of zeroing in on the cabal hitmen: men in black, etc. The ones who do the Rothschild's dirtywork. Eliminating the competition, eliminating people like Anthony Bourdain and John Lennon, who were going to “talk” - tell the truth. Ivo even pointed out the two men in black who visited me a few years back at 4 a.m. never returned. Not that I miss them but I guess they're not around anymore.
There are fewer now and with each passing day, fewer still, to take out whistleblowers, find children for the Queen's satanic rituals, eliminate the competition.
Godspeed, let's rid this planet of this threat!
Me: Hi, Ivo. I come across people in the lightworker community who freely give advice, directing it at others, like myself. This always gets my back up.
Ivo: Yes, and it should. Your senses are telling you something about the person who is doing so: they are taking a superior egotistical stance to you in an attempt to make you the inferior party. It takes some time for your intellect to catch up, my dear because you need to read and re-read their comment, but your senses are sounding the alert. I say you are a brilliant empath and you are. You sense energy well. Your intellect did not understand this in its entirety before your intuition did, my love. Do you see?
Me: Yes. I do. I got an alerted feeling before I understood the text and what was implied in the text.
Ivo: What gets your hackles up is you are not interested in having ego battles with others, because that is where the ego leads one to – to battle for domination and a fight for your energy.
And when you see unsolicited advice being given, you understand the person is inflating their ego at your expense, which is another problem – they are an energy vampire – attempting to put you in the victimized half of the interaction. If you were so inclined, you would feel victimized, and you were angry, but you rectified the situation quickly by expelling the vampire out of the forum.
I will repeat again: When someone is in their ego, when they are taking the superior stance, they are in their Matrix mind. When someone takes the victim stance they are also in their Matrix mind. And both are being manipulated by dark external energies.
Me: End of video. LOL
Ivo: There is more to explain. When you engage in egotistical behaviour you are in your Matrix mind. When you engage in true spiritual behaviour, which is based in humility, you are of spirit and coming from the spirit mind. The ego pays lip service to many of your spiritual expressions.
Many people in your community are not aware but their egos are very aware of what they are doing.
They believe they are giving advice but in doing so, their ego is positioning them to the superior position. If in fact you would have allowed this, this person would have continued and would have continued to take your energy at every opportunity.
You simply recognize this and hopefully we have other awakened people on this channel as well. Or we can awaken some.
Do not give out unsolicited advice. It is a control tactic and control tactics are done in order to vampire energy.
Me: Yes, lesson learned thanks to mom and dad.
Ivo: Your family home was a microcosm of the Matrix macrocosm around you. Your parents modelled the very behaviours that are carried out in your society, in others' homes, in businesses, etc. Manipulation and control. They lived by all its rules. And your parents were depressed and exhausted.
Me: I always had the feeling that I was raised in the 1600's.
Ivo: Yes, it felt very much like the dark ages.
Me: So maybe we can give some examples to people to help them pick off this behaviour in others and in themselves.
Ivo: Very well. Your comments tend to be personal because your personal experience is what you share from in order to be the way shower.
Ivo: People sense weakness in you at at times and this is where the advice givers turn up.
Me: And the vampires.
Ivo: When weakness is sensed in someone, even in the case where you are posting about how I tutor you, then the advice giver/vampire/controller will give you advice because they sense this weakness. Yes, it is difficult to always come across as being of strength in your world since your world is so harsh, so you must be careful to share around people that respect your vulnerability and would not exploit it for their own gain.
Me: This comment looked very much like someone trying to help.
Ivo: The comment said that there must be tolerance for all at whatever level of learning they are at. I see. So the comment said, “Have no boundaries.” Because if you were tolerant of all, then you would deal with all with no boundaries as well.
Me: That would make me crazy.
Ivo: Exactly. The commenter was attempting to bring your boundaries down exactly by saying this. That is what their ego/the dark side was attempting to tell you to do in order to weaken your boundaries. It did not work.
Ivo: When 2 (or more) people interact, there must be mutual respect, and I will repeat – mutual – respect for all parties concerned otherwise there is no viable interaction.
When one is, either knowingly or unwittingly, involved for the sake of gaining dominance over the other(s) then an imbalance will occur if allowed to proceed. Also the dominator will begin to tap energies from the others in the party.
This is far more common than anyone can understand.
An example of this interaction would be someone in the lightworker community saying that all should be tolerated while they walk their paths, and the implication would be regardless of what they do. This is incorrect. All behaviours should not be tolerated.
If in fact, you have bothered to point out this person's agenda they would have most likely denied it and an argument would have ensued, because this is, after all, an energy vampire. They have multiple strategies for gaining your energy. If one fails, they will simply employ another.
The fact is, speaking about another person in a conversation with a stranger is a boundary issue. At this point, your “radar” became aware that this person could be attempting to change or to manipulate or to dominate you in some way. Simply because they were not speaking about themselves; they had changed their focus to you.
The next step is to see what, in fact, is going on. You noticed unsolicited advice-giving. And you understand that the advisor is always in the superior position. So this person had moved them self to the superior position in the conversation.
Then there was an attempt to break your boundaries saying that everyone should be tolerated no matter where they are in their spiritual journey – this is most likely the person being an unwitting accomplice to the matrix voices in their head.
Me: Then I ejected them from the forum.
Ivo: And it is because you are aware of how the Matrix seeks to dominate and subdue you. You are aware that many in your community can be used as Matrix agents to accomplish this task. That is why I warned you years ago never to allow anyone to give you advice. Now it has come full circle. You see why now.
Ivo: The fact is, until one becomes wholly heart-centered, un-egotistical and totally of higher mind, they are subject to this type of control and manipulation and can be used to that end to control and manipulate others. Unless the others are aware.
Me: It sounds paranoid.
Ivo: It is in fact, true, my love. You see this being carried on all around you. Simply look at your advertisements.
Me: I have ad bloc on my computer and don't watch TV.
Ivo: You have limited your exposure to these manipulations. Unfortunately others have not and if they are at all aware, they are still learning.
This particular incident, was, in fact, the dark's attempt to control you again. But you were wise to it and it failed.
Many in your spiritual community try to tell others what to do. This is incorrect. Do not listen to others who tell you what to do. Simply read the post or watch the video and decide for yourself what you will do.
Me: Well, it sounds like an oxy-moron here Ivo because you said, “Do not listen to others who tell you what to do.” You just told them what to do.
Ivo: This is true, my love but I am of the light. My advice is of the light, not of the dark.
Learning to love all does not mean that you have no boundaries. It does not mean that you love all but at your own expense because you are the first part of that “All” that you must learn to love. It does not mean that all you must learn to love are not connected to the dark in any way. Because most of the people on your planet are connected to the dark and are not aware of it. The dark, however, is aware of it and takes the most opportunity possible to keep you subdued. You are simply aware of it and will not allow it.
Me: I have strong feelings that come up.
It is best if the lightworkers watch for messages such as, “Love all,” because this can be interpreted in many ways. The dark also senses when you are vulnerable and will send someone around to exploit this vulnerability. When you are perusing something that you are learning about for example, and you find another who is willing to discuss this with you the following day while it is still on your mind. Be careful.
Bear in mind other energy vampires include critics...
Me: I get lots of those. LOL
Ivo: Energy vampires have many tactics to steal your energy and to lower your vibration. It all begins with understanding where they are positioning themselves in a relationship with you: above you, below you or as an equal. The equal stance is obviously the best way to go.
Beware of teachers and students both. Both can be energy vampires. The best thing is to keep the focus on yourself because you cannot steal your own energy.
Help is best given when it is asked for. Then a consented exchange of energy can occur. Vampiring can still happen and the buyer must always beware, as they say.
When you are friends and are agreeable to interactive energy exchanges, where one perhaps is the helper one day and the helped the next, and it does not feel like anything is amiss, then by all means, help each other.
But for strangers who are unfamiliar with each other, no. It is best not to start out relationships by helping another, because these are codependent relationships.
Me: Yes, I remember the boyfriend who literally came over to my house the first night to fix my plumbing. LOL That was a great first date and it got worse from there.
Ivo: A highly codependent relationship and you spent much of it in his living room while he smoked hash with his friends, which you did not wish to be a part of. You should have left. But you were too codependent to speak up by that point. There was a lot of energy vampiring going on there.
In relationships, it is best to begin by not giving physical items, money or by helping another in any way. Relationships are about knowing and honoring the other.
Me: It sounds like we're saying not to help others.
Ivo: We are saying to be careful before you help others. Be careful of who is helping you as they may be an energy vampire without even realizing it at times.
There is so much focus on unity within your community. Yes, this is a worthwhile goal but before unity is achieved, one must be self-empowered. Your lightworker community is at many different levels of activation at the moment which makes unity difficult. Those who are not subject to being manipulated or controlled can teach the ones who are still dealing in those behaviours.
You are all part of the One, but there are many agendas seeking to divide and to conquer your unity. Once one is aware of these agendas and can guard against them, unity is possible. To understand unity understand that which seeks to divide you.
Me: There was. Thank you Ivo.
Ivo: My love, you are most welcome.
Me: Ivo, seeing as your mandate is to help lightworkers awaken, in whatever way that entails, I need you to speak on this because I believe a reminder is necessary.
There are a lot of lightworkers who are confused. I pick it up empathically from the collective when I read posts, etc. and it's overwhelming for me. So I think because there is so much confusion, we should address these issues, and we have been.
We've already touched on fake news as planted by the dark on social media, fake lightworkers (darkworkers) and how they twist your head around, what is 4D and what is 5D and who's going... we have recent videos on all of these subjects.
Mira also channeled one on vibrational frequency and although you go into this all the time because all of our work is based on that, it's helping people to understand what's going on and why they don't gel with everyone on earth. Because I think people think that when they deal with all their issues, that they should be able to get along with everyone but they're finding they still are not attracted to some people at all. So Mira explained why this happens.
What I'd like to discuss today is selfish lightworkers. I see posts on, where else, Facebook where a “lightworker” is telling off other people in the group who put up posts asking for energy to help deal with their issues. This person told other people to learn how to heal themselves and stop asking for help!
So I realized this person is, for whatever reason, selfish. Can you help out Ivo?
Ivo: Yes, the person is either a darkworker, trying to create an argument between two differing sides of the same issue as is often the tactic of trolls, or it is a lightworker who is still vibrating at a third dimensional level – which is selfish. His annoyance at those who do this is part of his learning but apparently he is having a tough time with the lesson. Being patient with those who are of lower frequency than yours is the lesson. Allowing others to be themselves is another lesson. The person is attempting to control the group and who posts to it.
Me: When I was in 3D I wasn't selfish.
Ivo: You are of extremely high consciousness. Being selfish is beyond you at most times.
Me: True. I have to keep trying to take breaks and unwind and have trouble with that even. I don't plan on martyring myself to help others.
Ivo: So you are learning to balance your giving with resting. That is advisable.
Me: I keep hearing you tell me to take a break.
Ivo: And you do not always listen.
Me: It has to do with my non-existent memory. If I leave things to my memory to remember to do, I won't finish the job.
Ivo: There are many in the lightworker community who are still selfish. They maintain their third dimensional matrix stance because there may be many things they do not realize.
All human beings in the galaxy who are of the light and are of higher frequency, are service to others. Those who are not are helping to control your planet right now. They are service to self or selfish in other words.
There are energy vampires who put up posts to attempt to extract energy from unwitting helpers. Yes, this does happen on social media.
There are lightworkers who do this because they are caught in the victim programming and are not taking responsibility for what they create in their lives. They believe life happens to them. Your e-course on this subject may help many people to relieve themselves of this burden. It is on our website www.sharonandivo.weebly.com/Stopbeingavictim.
Perhaps this poster was fed up of people who do these things but there are many things he is missing.
The first thing is that all lightworkers are here to help other lightworkers and the people on earth. You did not come here, as Ashtar said in the recent video, out of selfishness, for selfish reasons. You came to be a part of the grand awakening of earth's people and the ascension to the fifth dimension.
You came to help. You left your wonderful lives and your loved ones behind, at least as far as your daily lives go. You do see them and spend time with them in the astral however many do not remember these visits.
So to think of yourself as a selfish person is incorrect. To behave selfishly is to oppose the intention of your soul and to continue to be a pawn of the dark controllers of your planet.
To liberate yourself is to align with your soul. This is a process for many as you must move away from what you have been taught and move on to reveal to yourself your true self. And there are many who are helping in this regard on earth, but just as many who are attempting to hold you back. The key to understanding who is who, who is helpful and who is holding you back is to see if you make any progress under their tutelage. If you do not, or particularly if you find yourself falling back into old third dimensional patterns, cut off contact with this instructor immediately.
Me: Good advice.
Ivo: It is actually simple. But the thing that perhaps complicates it is the amount of interactivity you have with others of all vibrational frequencies and darkworkers. It is sometimes easier to just simplify your life, stick to what you know, have your trusted sources that feed you information, and learn to sense energy. Because when you sense energy you can sense the vibrational frequency of the information.
Me: True. I can sense people, especially ones standing in front of me really well. Two sales clerks in the store: talk to this one, not to that one, second one is not as friendly.
Ivo: Your energy field will reveal much to you if you can uncomplicate your life enough to listen to its subtle message. Yes. It is not for no reason that your controllers keep you on overload. You must have time to relax and give up the noise of your stressful lives. Then you can hear the subtle intuition and sense energy. In a peaceful state.
Me: Perhaps many of the newer lightworkers don't realize this. There is much to be gained through spiritual messages, although many of them are not the complete message and tend to blame people on earth for their negativity.
Ivo: And as I said, for the lightworker who gave so much of themself to come here to earth, you are not negative. You have accumulated a shadow through having an ego that is manipulated by unseen forces, so disassociating with what it tells you and the emotions you feel, is the best way to go. Let them go. Do not act on them. They are not yours anyway. Your mental and emotional bodies, what many think of as themselves, are highly manipulated at the moment. This is the job of the lightworker, and this is what awareness entails – to rise above the physical mind and the external influences that hold it prisoner. Just in doing this much, you help all around you. However many have chosen more as well.
Me: Yes, to get spiritual. To become your Higher Self. To align with your soul's purpose on earth. To bring heaven to well.... earth. All those descriptions are correct.
Ivo: They are. Venting at people on social media is not the way to go. Accept others as being on their own path in life, and disassociate with angry emotions that you feel. You are beings of love, nothing else.
Me: Thank you Ivo.
Ivo: My dear, we are together more than you know.
Me: Oh, I'm catching on. L.O.L.
