< Creator 10QA > But dear friends, in your original contract was a "what-if clause." That "what-if" clause said that if indeed, you were to move to the next level without these traumatic things happening, then what would you do? And that is why we sit here with you now. That is the very reason we began these very specific lessons and discussions in past. The date of August 19, 1999 was the predicted date of destruction. This was also the time when we began these discussions in the teepee (see Tobias channeling "The Departure of the Guides", August 21, 1999).
We began to work with you on your "what-if" clause. That being if things DID work out, then dear friends, there would be a need on Earth for teachers, those who had done much internal work, much internal processing and transformation. These would be the ones - and you are the ones - who agreed to go into their next lifetime while staying in body.
< Ascension 1 > It had been prophesized by many for hundreds and thousands of years that even if you (human) did not destroy yourselves that there would be potentials and there would be set ups in the Earth herself for this to happen. This was caused by the need of Earth to release all she had held. The time was appropriate. The time was appropriate. It was predicted. It was even put on the celestial calendar that you would find yourselves at the end of times. The Earth would begin collapsing from geological events. It was predicted that August 1999 was the beginning of the end, when the quakes and the storms and the volcanoes would rattle Earth apart. It was only a potential, but it was one that seemed to be highlighted, seemed to be the chosen potential of all things.
< Ascension 1 > You realize that you knew something was up, approaching the end of the millennium. You knew it was not about just a calendar change. It was not a Y2K bug. It was something much different. It was a potential, a strong potential for termination: August, 1999. Dear friends, look around. Think about what we are telling you. As you sit on your own deathbed in this lifetime, you look back, and you have to chuckle, for this very group of Shaumbra began coming together in the strongest of ways two years ago in August, 1999 (the first published Tobias channeling was in August 1999, "The Departure of the Guides"). In the subsequent time, in these two years since, your group worldwide has connected very, very quickly. When termination did not occur, you knew it was time for the next level, the next understanding.
< Ascension 1 > This very strange time period from August, 1999, to approximately August, 2001. You remember this as kind of a time of "no time." It was a time of transition and adjustment. It was a time of very strange physical feelings, very strange emotional feelings. You did not know exactly where you existed or why. You felt a strong pull to continue going forward, but yet you did not feel grounded or anchored in anything. You felt you were in a tremendous period of transition. You did not feel at home anywhere.
