The ghost of New Year’s past says hi, how’s it going?
For many years Lightsmith offered New Year’s channelings. We invited our friends in spirit to lend their perspectives on how consciousness was shifting about and how the energies of change might affect us in the next cycle of our calendar year. I’m thinking the last such channeling was in January of 2014, which seems long, long ago.
In keeping with the theme posited on the subject line, this channeling was unexpected. Michele and I sat down yesterday (the 1st) with the intention of doing a little tune-in to get some insight on a family situation. Shortly after we began she told me someone was hooking up, and soon I was in a dialogue with a group of our old friends.
The message is not particularly long compared to some of our previous sessions that could run a couple hours or so. The session was initially focused on some personal information and suggestions for me and Michele, but being a New Year’s channeling I asked before we closed if they would speak a bit more about 2019. I am combining various bits of the session to give you a sense of what I heard about the coming year and our relationship to the changes ahead. I will leave in some of the parts that were personal to me, because they exemplify what may feel personal to some of you, too.
We’re all coming out of a long stretch of being in a particular structure within consciousness, and for many of us our challenges may not be so much what’s going on in the old world as it continues to dissolve, but learning to move beyond what we have known and then functioning within the new dimension.

Sounds like 2019 will be challenging for those who have yet to choose. Here’s to new adventures opening for those of us who have already decided to be part of the new dimension. We’re all on a learning curve now so, to quote a famous line, boldly go where no one has gone before.
Still hanging about,
The discussion begins:
Hello, Chris one. It’s been some time since we’ve been able to be in mutual discussion with you, so we are grateful for this opportunity.
ME, TOO, I DO MISS IT.
We do too, visiting with our human friends, our embodied friends. And we enjoy connection, just as you do.
MAYBE THE FIRST RESOLUTION FOR 2019 IS TO CONNECT A LITTLE MORE OFTEN.
Perhaps. If this one is amenable.
I GET IT.
We understand you have specific things that you have been wondering about, but perhaps we can get to specifics after a little bit of interconnectedness.
SURE. KIND OF A SURPRISE…HAPPY NEW YEAR…I KNOW YOU DON’T HAVE YEARS.
No, but they are marked, because we are in connection with those who do. And there is a kind of current that humanity uses the calendar to mark progress and mark unfolding, and it’s because of that we have some sense of it. We’re not always good at predicting it, in terms of time, but we get a sense of it.
There is much pressure in the field of consciousness, is there not.
OH YES, AND WE’D LOVE TO HEAR YOUR CURRENT PERSPECTIVES ON THAT.
Well, it has been foreseen, predicted, and it is now pressure time, where those who are resisting and who have had a great deal of conditioning within the illusion of duality are holding onto that illusion with every ounce of their mental capacity and willpower. And trying to force everyone to be in the same illusion with them, as if that is their prerogative to govern consciousness. That’s their belief, that’s what they are investing all of their millions and billions in, and they are assuming they can control consciousness, and they are using every means they can to do so.
This is the year where they will start to find that that is not the case. The reactions of those who have presumed, assumed and put all of their resources into that focus and have presumed that their victory is within sight…they will find that there is something that is not syncing up with what their presumed reality is. But they will react, and that reaction is somewhat unpredictable. Somewhat predictable given the repertoire of thought or presumption or conclusions that are within that particular structure, but somewhat unpredictable because the pressure that is building is creating unpredictability on all levels of consciousness, not just that level.
So, our suggestion for you is to stay very focused in what is your experience and what you know to be true and real. To not allow seduction of your mind, even to pull your attention off course, in a sense, during a day. And stay very present in what you know to be real, authentic, your own experience of what’s true, and honor that. And honor it wherever you find it. Honor it with whoever you find it in. Honor it, and allow that to continue to open, and open, and open, and grow and expand, and fill…particularly in relationships.
The new dimension is forming connections. It’s forming relationships and connections. We know that you, dear Chris one, do not open to connections much. You have withdrawn within the old story because it did not match who you were. So, you withdrew, and you were fine with a solitary experience with one or two people. But we are just giving you a heads up that in your heart, your being, it may be time to relax and open a bit more in the new dimension, and allow more interconnectedness. More relational connectedness, more real, mutual relationships.
SO YOU’RE SAYING THAT’S POSSIBLE NOW WHERE IT WASN’T BEFORE AS MUCH?
It’s been opening. And this year, for those who are within this new dimension, they will find that there are more and more new field, interconnected kinds of experiences that actually will feel good, mutual, creative, supportive and interesting to you. Do you see?
YES, INTERESTING WOULD BE GOOD. THAT’S A PART THAT’S I’M HAPPY TO HEAR ABOUT. IF IT’S NOT INTERESTING, IT’S WORK.
So, we don’t have so much to say. It’s just a time of connection with us to you, you to us. You can ask anything you want, we can be in discussion about it. We basically just came to say hello, and to [say] let your heart warm up a little bit dear one.
WELL, YOU KNOW, I THINK I MIGHT LIKE THAT. AND IT IS NOT WHERE I’M PRACTICED AND MAKES ME A LITTLE EMOTIONALLY CHALLENGED.
Challenge is good!
CHALLENGE IS GOOD, YES. I LOOK FORWARD TO THAT IN THIS YEAR OF FOLLOWING CONNECTIONS. I RECOGNIZE WHEN SOME OF THEM HAPPEN, THOUGH IT HASN’T TYPICALLY FELT LIKE THEY’VE SUSTAINED, NECESSARILY.
[Discussion continues with this being a significant year of choice for many people, with reflection that many people will be choosing, whether consciously or not, how to proceed with their soul’s evolution.]
Consciousness is not a prerequisite to becoming part of the new dimension, but the choice is a prerequisite, you might say, whether it’s done fully with consciousness or whether there are circumstances and events that people are processing through and they come to a moment of recognition that “I choose life… I choose what’s real, I choose what’s deeper….that can be a choice in the midst of challenge, in the midst of something that takes them beyond where they’ve been, yes?
It doesn’t need to be a choice for a new dimension. They may not know that reference or that word, but they choose something that is authentic to them that anchors them into their body, their soul embodied, and then they start to hook up in that way. It is individual, it is truly individual, and that is part of this grand adventure. For those who have chosen, then the field is already moving you into a new creation, a new experience, a new embodiment. It is up to you, then, to stay present with that experience and not worry so much about what other people are choosing. Don’t think about that. It really is not up to you, and you have very little impact into those choices that others are making.
So, relax. Open to your own experience. Relax into being more present in who you are. How do you feel more alive, how do you feel more full and fulfilled, and happy and joyful within a body. How do you feel more whole and healthy and well-fed. Do you know?
PARTLY WHEN I GET TO TALK ABOUT THE THINGS THAT INTEREST ME.
That’s part of it, but that’s what you’ve seen and felt for a long time. What about the new things that are yet to unfold for you in your experience?
YEAH, WELL I DON’T KNOW WHAT THAT WOULD BE.
Of course not. But stay open to unfolding experiences beyond what you’ve known, beyond what’s familiar.
SURE, I WANT TO DO THAT. WE TALK ABOUT SOMETHING SHOWING UP. I WONDER WHAT’S GOING TO SHOW UP, WHAT WILL BE THERE INVITING US INTO THE NEXT EXPERIENCE? FOR THE LAST COUPLE YEARS, ESPECIALLY, I KNOW WE’VE BEEN HAVING TO TRANSITION AND SHIFT, AND THERE’S TIMING AND ALL THAT, BUT IT’S LIKE IN THE HUMAN EXPERIENCE WHEN SIX MONTHS GOES BY THAT’S A LONG TIME OF WONDERING IF ANYTHING IS EVERY GOING TO SHOW UP, OR ARE THE THINGS ON THE PLANET EVER REALLY GOING TO CHANGE. THAT’S THE KIND OF DISCUSSION, BECAUSE WE WANT IT.
Of course you want it, and it will change, and it is changing. You have already within your experience the capacity to attract and create experience, new connections, new relationships, and new possibilities. If you look too far afield for change without realizing it’s happening within your own lived experience, your mind will only look at what is not happening rather than opening to and experiencing what is possible within your own experience. That might be a new practice of sorts [chuckle].
YEAH, I TEND TO THINK LARGE-SCALE. IT’S INTERESTING AND HELPFUL TO HAVE THE REMINDER ABOUT HOW THINGS ARE ALWAYS MOVING IN CONSCIOUSNESS. SO HERE I AM TALKING ABOUT THE BIGGER STORY AND AWARE THAT THERE ARE THINGS MOVING ON THE LARGE SCALE, BUT WHEN I APPLY IT TO MY OWN LIFE IT’S DIFFERENT. I DON’T PERCEIVE IT HAPPENING, NECESSARILY, EVEN THOUGH I GUESS IT’S ALL TO SCALE, SO TO SPEAK.
BEING AS IT’S THE FIRST [OF JANUARY], AND SO OFTEN IN THE LIGHTSMITH YEARS WE DID HOLD A CHANNELING….WE HAVE TALKED ABOUT HOW THOSE WHO THINK THEY CAN CONTROL CONSCIOUSNESS WILL START TO FIND OUT OTHERWISE….AND I’M NOT MEANING TO ASK FOR A LONG THING….BUT IF YOU COULD BUILD ON THAT AND OFFER A 2019 MESSAGE IN A FEW SENTENCES OR PARAGRAPHS. WHAT WOULD THAT BE?
To realize that human consciousness has been manipulated and controlled by duality, what you’ve called the patriarchy, for many many centuries. Many, many. And that all people born into a body, except perhaps a few young ones now embodied, have carried forward both the genetic imprint and the consciousness that you took on to transmute, to transform, and to shift within this experience of life. Or not.
Those that have been in particular control and manipulation of consciousness are continuing to ramp up how they are directing and infusing their consciousness into the large consciousness to control people, to control everything. That’s what has been the payoff for being in those positions. Yet, this year they will begin to find out that all of their concerted efforts are not actually bearing fruit in the way that they presumed it would, and that the consciousness that has been growing beneath the surface of what they have controlled is now starting to strengthen enough to surface and create other experiences that for them will be beyond their control. And for you, who have been waiting for some manifestation or materialization of the new dimension, you will say hurrah, hooray, there is something [that can now be witnessed].
There will be different reactions and responses to these various unfoldings, and yet as this unfolds remember that this is a year of great unpredictability. If you try to predict, you will be surprised, because you cannot. If anyone else makes a prediction, they too will be surprised. It’s a kind of living in the moment, in the experience, in the current, really dwelling deeper and deeper in your own living consciousness within the larger living consciousness, and actually becoming part of the new dimensional experience.
That’s what we would coach you to do, if we were with you to coach. We would coach you to do those things, because what’s going on in the surface world and for those who are being pushed to make choices…and there will be many pushed to make choices in this year…many, many…as we said, we don’t know whether those people who are pushed in their own experience will choose to be embodied in the new dimension, or choose to be disembodied for another experience to learn or to grow….there are many options, but basically it’s a choice to be part of a new creation within the body, or not. Within the earth, or not. Within the new dimensional experience, or not. Within the new frequencies that are part of the new dimensional experience, or not. It’s pretty much yes or no. There are no maybes.
And you know that already. Many of you have already made the choice, but some of you haven’t. Some of you are on the fence. It’s okay, but fence time is pretty much coming to an end this year.
Listen. Pay attention to what is opening within your experience, particularly new connections, new relationships, new weavings. The new dimension is working at this level of new connections, new weavings and new possibilities. Because of these weavings, pay attention. Open your hearts. If you are people who have been bound to relationships that you have felt you needed to be connected to because of certain loyalties or promises or whatever, some of those may not be connecting in the same way. But other new possibilities may open. New relationships may open. Pay attention to those experiences. Honor them, know them as your own inner guidance system.
This year is relational, and we can’t say that enough. If your hearts are not open to being honest and truthful where the mutual, true authentic connections are and where they are not, the realm of relationship will be part of your challenge this year. It’s the way it is at this moment in time in your life experiences, because that’s where the field is at, not because of you. It’s where the field is at. If you are part of the field, then that is next.
AN INTERESTING YEAR, AS THEY SAY.
Each year is interesting in its own way, is it not?
YES, I CAN LOOK BACK AND KIND OF SEE THE PERSONALITY OF EACH OF THEM, OR WHAT WE’RE MOVING THROUGH. IT DOES CHANGE, AND WHY I SAY REMINDERS ARE HELPFUL. DAY TO DAY WE MIGHT NOT SEE IT, BUT EVENTUALLY YOU CAN LOOK AND SEE THAT THERE WAS MOVEMENT AND THERE WAS CHANGE.
SOMETIMES THE HUMAN CHALLENGE COMES FROM OUR RELATIONSHIP TO THE SYSTEM WE’VE COME OUT OF, BECAUSE WE DO STILL TEND TO FRAME PERHAPS TOO MANY THINGS THAT WAY. THAT’S A PRACTICE TOO, NOW. CHOOSING A NEW FRAME.
A new frame that is fluid, not rigid like the old frames where you were a photofinisher, do you see? You had a name, you had an identity, it was something everyone recognized. It was embedded in a reality that was mutual. New frameworks, however, are not like that. You are not going to get a new identity that you can attach to that everyone recognizes, and that you can then “tally ho”. Yes? No! [laughter]. No, not that kind of thing. That can’t happen in the new creation.
So, there is a need to not desire it. Not to try to fill what was felt as a solid experience with something new that you presume will feel as solid. It won’t. It will not feel as solid. If security has come with a feeling of that kind of solidity and identity, it will not feel that way now. So, there is a bit of a challenge in loosening the presumption of solid and secure, and the sense of identity within an embodied experience.
SO, WOULD THAT BE ONE PLACE WHERE MILLENNIALS HAVE IT OVER US RIGHT NOW?
Yes, perhaps. They have less attachment to it. They have less interest in it. So, yes, you inherited more of that and lived more of that, so it is a bit more of a challenge to release from it and realize that you can actually live very well without it, and have a marvelous, wonderful, full experience without feeling secure and solid in the same old way.
Fullness, fulfillment, and mutuality and a sort of collaborativeness, and a kind of fluidity within creation is much more the way the field works. You don’t need the old model, but there might be some longing for it [laughter], because you remember how it felt to be solid and secure within it. But, that won’t be replaced.
YEAH, I THINK THIS IDEA OF BOTH THE GIFT AND THE CHALLENGE OF TRANSFORMING WHILE EMBODIED IS ONE OF THOSE THINGS WE DIDN’T THINK SO MUCH ABOUT WHEN WE SIGNED ON, WHAT IT IS TO RELEASE FROM WHAT WE’VE KNOWN AS OUR REALITY INSTEAD OF JUST BEING BORN INTO SOMETHING NEW WITH A SENSE OF HEY, THIS IS JUST THE WAY IT WORKS, AND IT’S ALL NORMAL AND NATURAL.
You made a choice [laughter]. You did it this way, and it is a bit more of a challenge. Transforming within the spirit dimension perhaps has some advantage, but there are advantages doing it the way you are doing it, too. Many advantages in terms of doing it while embodied while in your age. There needed to be a group of people who said they would do it that way in order to do it within the embodied, collective consciousness, here in this earth. They needed to do that. So, you said you would and here you are. And we are grateful that you are among those who chose that and have been diligent in your process of transforming and transmuting what has been yours to do. And to be supportive and helpful of the larger unfolding and transmutative experience that we’ve been privileged to work with you to do.
We certainly wish to support you in this unfolding for yourselves, and we hope that it is not overly taxing or challenging for you. And yet, those challenges that are yours to move you along, we cannot prevent either. Just as you cannot prevent for someone else.
THANKS FOR JOINING US. IT WAS UNEXPECTED AND WELCOME.
Our pleasure, as usual and always. We will hopefully and perhaps connect once in awhile as it feels right. Relationally we are part of the new creation, too. We have part of creating with you, together with you, all of us and all of you. Our part in creating or weaving is more or less complete, but there is more yet to unfold as we and many of you together start to allow the initiating of a new creation.
New creation is not something about what people’s visions are of what it could be. It’s how things unfold, and every experience is a dynamic moment of creation that opens to another dynamic, creative expression or moment of creation. The culmination of many of those is perhaps an outcome that you can notice, name, and celebrate. But, that is only a moment, too. So that moment then precipitates other moments and other combinations of people, or other combinations of synchronous experiences, etc., etc.
There is no one place to grab hold of and say this is it, I have the truth. There is no such thing in the new dimension. But there are priceless moments, and the more you sink into the experience of those moments of created expression, experience, collaboration, mutuality, feeling, aliveness…all of the different things that are possible for embodied experience within each moment….THAT gets to be your experience. And then you’ll start to realize it isn’t about what you do, it isn’t about what you create, it isn’t about what you come up with, it isn’t about any new idea. It’s really about fully living these moments, relaxing into them, allowing them to infuse you and fill you and inform you and create you at the same time as whatever is being created is being created.
It’s quite lovely. Wondrous, actually.
I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO IT.
You already are in it. You don’t have to look forward, just relax back and in. Back and down, into life, into body, into being. And enjoy. As much as you possibly can, allow enjoyment.
Sometimes we laugh at ourselves and you together. It’s like there has been way too much focus on what should be or the thought of what could be or what was coming. For those who still like to define or articulate that definition, it’s okay, but it’s so limited to what the experience is. Experience is far, far, far more and greater than any definition or thought, or presumption, or remembrance of what it felt like before. It’s about full embodiment, full experience, full awareness, fullness and fulfillment in every experience. And it’s different. One moment of fulfillment and experience will be different from the next unfolding. They’re different. And it isn’t about repeating, doing it again. Creation is not like that. It doesn’t repeat. It keeps growing, it keeps evolving, it keeps weaving, it keeps bringing together a different experience for the next experience.
BEEN THERE, DONE THAT.
Yes. So, until we meet again in this way. We are not far. We are in the experience with you, and we enjoy a dialogue once in awhile just as you do, perhaps. Know that we love you, we enjoy you, we are part of your moment today and you are part of ours, and we enjoy that.
I HAVE ENJOYED IT ALSO, THANK YOU.
Thank you, too.
Until again, yes. So it is.

Hi all, hope this comment section works.
Hi Chris. When you asked about 2019, and the source said people “…will choose to be embodied in the new dimension, or choose to be disembodied for another experience to learn or to grow…” it made me wonder, are you familiar with the Law of One concept of “harvest”, or anything similar to those ideas? Do you think this “new dimension” is subtle, or has some actual metaphysics or even physics to it, or is “dimensions” intended as more of a metaphor for new attitudes or ways of thinking?
I am a follower of the Law of One and a Warrior of Light and Love. We greet you in the love and light of the one infinite creator ;).
My understanding is that Planet Earth is vibrating fourth density, NOW. The shift, transformation, “new dimension”, harvest, future, is now. The choices we make will shape and form the new world. Every moment we move closer to our reality. The “new dimension” will be subtle, metaphysical, physical, and everything in between and nothing like we have ever experienced before. Dimensions is also a metaphor for new attitudes and a way of thinking. We need to become aware of every thought pattern that plagues our machine mind. We need to begin practices of waking up, to move closer to our real Self. The non-dual divinity conscienceness that is our truest nature. If we want to find peace in the world, we need to find peace in ourselves.
I hope 2020 brings joy, praise, love, compassion, and gratitude to you, Chris, the world, and all in between. Lots of Love, Zach.
Hi Chris, First of all, I couldn’t believe my eyes when I read your post here (but really of course, I can and do).
2019 was an epic upheaval and shedding of a lot of old structures – for so many people, friends and family and it continues ! Getting “disembodied” is such a great characterization and it resonates deeply with me. I left my career, a sibling died from an overdose (and being the carrier for a lot of intergenerational pain, I think he found peace). My wife left which created a clearing for myself to grow into an entirely new place with new people. Its amazing. So after the trials of 2019, and traveling and living from my car for 6+ months last year, I decided that I want to start my own business. My nephew Mike and I secluded ourselves in Joshua Tree late last year and we came up with our business plan, and we came up with the name – Lightsmith. We weren’t prepared to build out a website creating a community of photographers (my creative passion) but we are now and it sounds like you’re winding down this site and URL? Contact me if there is something you think we could work out? Many thanks and appreciation for your consideration!
