The Gatekeeper’s Role: Ascending and Returning to Earth

Written by Wes Annac, The Culture of Awareness

Every now and then, I like to take a page from Steve Beckow and discuss some of the information we’ve been given from the wealth of wonderful and genuine channeled messages published to the internet every day.

Most of you probably know that I channel my higher self and guides, and it goes without saying that plenty of other entities are channeled who offer a lot of information related to our ascension, our respective roles here on earth and plenty of other things that are intended to expand our perception of ourselves and the reality around us.

Our channeled sources have talked about everything from an inevitable ‘first contact’ with the spiritually advanced humans who exist on other planets to the equally inevitable (and ongoing) ‘ascension’ we’ve heard so much about.

If you don’t know anything about ascension, it’s a collective evolutionary event that’ll take us from our limited third dimension to the much less limited fifth dimension (and beyond).

It’s no secret that most channeled material resonates with me, and even though some messages can’t be taken as seriously as others, I appreciate a lot of channeled material that some people don’t think is genuine.

I think there’s something real to the ability to channel various higher-dimensional entities and collectives, and I hope to see that the rest of the world picks up on this reality in due time.

Here, I’d like to look at the role some of the lightworkers are playing in acting as ‘gatekeepers’ and keeping the widening ascension portal open for as many fellow seekers to step through as possible.

For those of you who don’t know, a ‘lightworker’ is a conscious seeker who recognizes that it’s their mission to bring through as much and as pure light/love energy as they can in an effort to uplift the collective consciousness, and as we’ll learn here, different lightworkers have assigned themselves with different missions.

Some lightworkers are here to channel communications from the higher realms, for example, while others are here to bless everyone who crosses their path. Some are meant to keep the aforementioned ascension portal open for the rest of humanity to eventually become aware of and step through, but what does it mean to be a gatekeeper?

It usually means someone’s experienced one of many states of enlightenment and consciously/unconsciously decided to use their greater perception to help the rest of humanity find a higher vibration. In many cases, the gatekeepers have basically ascended and chosen to come back to assist in the ongoing restoration of consciousness.

We’ll learn more about this role from our channeled sources, and in our first quote, The Divine Mother via Linda Dillon explains why some gatekeepers who have experiences of enlightenment don’t feel enlightened afterward.

Steve Beckow: “So, Archangel Michael spoke of Ascension Lite. He spoke of going through the car wash and then going through the car wash again. Those people who do that, the early risers, they should not feel at all disturbed that they’re not in a state of Sahaja?

Divine Mother: “No. This is the process. This is the reconstruction, and, let’s face it, you are the models for this. You are the template, and you are the template not because we are doing experimentation, you are the template because you have said, ‘I desire, I choose, I wish, and I will do this.’ There is no room for discouragement.” (1)

Archangel Michael via Linda Dillon describes the ‘thousands and thousands’ of people who’ve found a degree of enlightenment and chosen to use it to uplift humanity.

“Thousands and thousands and thousands of people have ascended and have had the experience of the ecstasy, the bliss, and the significant shift within their very cores insofar as they do not see or experience being human or being in Gaia in the way that they had previously. Let me explain.

“These souls ― and yes, they are everyday people; they are not those who have been vying for sainthood, but they acknowledge their mastery, and part of each of you ascending is acknowledging your mastery ― but they have basically gone through the Ascension portal.

“They are primarily way-showers. They have anchored in the higher dimensional energy ― Fifth, Sixth, Seventh, and so on.” (2)

Gatekeepers, AAM tells us, decided to make a ‘U-turn’ after their initial enlightenment experiences, and for the most part, they’re consciously aware of their mastery and divinity.

“They have what we have called made a U-turn and are still exhibiting on planet, in form, in everyday reality, because their promise ― as part of their sacred journey, and as part of the collective’s commitment, decision ― is that they would be the way-showers for the rest of humanity.

“So they have, shall we say, Ascension Lite, insofar as that they have experienced the bliss, the higher realms. They have released the sense of restriction. They have embraced the sense of their inter-dimensionality, their ability to create and co-create.” (3)

Ascension requires anchoring to Gaia (the spirit of the earth), AAM advises.

“Now, each individual is having, and will have, a different experience of Ascension.

“Now I am going to describe, in general terms, what this Ascension looks, feels like and what that experience is like. But it does not mean, even though you come as a collective, it does not mean that each of you perceives and experiences this sacred union, the rising up through a higher-dimensional realm, in the same way…

“When you ascend, it is important that you anchor with and on Gaia. Otherwise your feet, quite literally, are not on the ground. So when people can experience and go, jump, to the higher dimensions available within the human experience, it is important in the Ascension, both individual and collective, that you stay connected with Gaia.” (4)

We’ll find as our ascension journey continues that staying grounded is important, because we can’t awaken humanity if we’re too lost in our own greater perception. Like plenty of people (like Matisyahu) have said, we can have our heads in the clouds as long as our feet are also on the ground, and spirituality isn’t true spirituality without grounded-ness.

We can’t enjoy our growing higher-vibrational perception without rooting ourselves to the earth, and those of us who are here to bring this planet into the light will benefit from staying open and receptive yet willing to be grounded at the same time.

Ascension won’t directly take us to the twelfth dimension, even those of us who naturally vibrated at that frequency before coming to earth, AAM shares, and instead, Gaia will be with us to help us stay as anchored as we can.

“Think of yourself as a helium balloon and Gaia is holding your string. So, as you ascend you will be at this time within the Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, Seventh, brushing the Eighth, brushing the Third, but not really in those dimensions. So for people to think that they are going to ascend and simply go directly to the Eleventh or Twelfth would not be fully correct.” (5)

Creating a new earth will require us to stay anchored primarily in the fifth, sixth and seventh dimensions.

“Now, once you have done your Ascension, are you free to move about? Of course you are.

“But the building and the creation of Nova Earth ― and we are talking about the human piece of Nova Earth, the human co-creation of Nova Earth, because the kingdoms and Gaia are already creating Nova Earth, and they are already participating in the higher dimensional reality ― but if you have your mission and purpose to assist, or desire to assist in the anchoring of what you, my friend, and I have called the Golden Age of Gaia, then you are primarily going to anchor in the Fifth, Sixth, and Seventh dimension.” (6)

It makes sense that we’ll have to stay relatively close to the earth if we want to make any sort of changes to it, and it seems that moving into the higher vibrations won’t be enough for our Nova Earth to be constructed. We’ll have to be willing to remain near the earth so we can construct our utopian society, and the rest of the dimensions will always be there for us to traverse.

We’ll always have the opportunity to explore the realms beyond the seventh dimension, but repairing the earth will temporarily require us to stay near the earth so we can play our part in constructing the society we’ve waited so long to see.

Our ability to change the planet will have long been sharpened by the time we’re in the fifth dimension, and the love that’ll overflow from our hearts will inspire us to make all of the changes that’ll be required for earth to host the presence of billions of other advanced civilizations who’ve waited for us to start making a real and lasting change.

In our final quote, AAM tells us that it’s in our life plan to remain near the earth to assist in the construction of her new society.

“Now, at some future date will there be a further Ascension? Yes, she is already inching up, as it were. And that will occur.

“And yes, there will be some who, once they have completed their commitment, shall we say, to the Mother, of Ascension in form and the ripple effect throughout the multiverse, the anchoring, the full anchoring of the love, then they may say, ‘Well, I think now I am going to primarily go back to my comfort zone, or my home zone of an alternate dimension.’ That is fine.

“But the fulfillment of the promise of this phase of the Mother’s plan is for the humans to accompany Gaia and all into the higher dimensional reality, and particularly into the love.” (7)

We’re on the earth to make a lot of important and needed changes, but they require much more love and light than we’ve manifested so far. This is why the gatekeepers are here – to experience physical/spiritual ascension into the higher realms before using their freshly enlightened perspective to bring this planet into the light once and for all.

This planet and its people have been in the center of an ongoing battle between the dark and the light for millennia, but now, millions of gatekeepers are being activated for their greater missions and answering to the dark forces who strive to keep us from recognizing and acting on the spiritual nature of our existence.

The gatekeepers, most of whom have already ascended and come back (without realizing it in some cases), are now tasked with transmuting the intense darkness that’s fed on the earth. Fortunately, they (and we all) are given a wealth of loving assistance from AAM, the Divine Mother and an uncountable number of other guides who are willing to do whatever they can to help us find the light.

If you feel like you’re a gatekeeper, I’d recommend you embrace your mission and refuse to turn away from it in favor of the continuous distractions our society churns out. We’re each here on a divinely inspired mission, so don’t worry if you haven’t discovered yours yet – you might find after a while that you, too, are a gatekeeper.

I’m a 21 year old awakening seeker and creator of The Culture of Awareness daily news site.

The Culture of Awareness features daily spiritual and alternative news, as well as articles I’ve written and more. Its purpose is to awaken and uplift by providing material that’s spiritually inspired and/or related to the fall of the planetary elite and our entrance into a positive future.

I can also be found at Oversoul Teachings, The Golden Age of Gaia,, Ashtar Command Crew, Facebook (Wes Annac and The Culture of Awareness), and Twitter.


  1. Thank you very much for this article, Wes. It is helpful for those of us who may feel called to offer their greater understanding and unique experiences to Earth’s uplift, but need more clarity about that service and about how we can understand ourselves. I also really appreciated the way you went back to square one in the beginning of the article and defined many of the terms that are thrown about with the assumption that there is an understood shared definition – clarity is always beneficial and trumps assumptions every time!

    “All that really matters is how loving we are!”

  2. I’m not sure if I can call myself a Gatekeeper, but after reading this it all resonated within myself and I could make perfect sense and give confirmation to issues that I have walked with throughout this existence here. I could really elaborate on this information you have shared and go into (if i am) what a Gatekeeper has to go through, experience and forever conceals within until timings are right. If you have more knowledge on this I would greatly appreciate it. It would be interesting to see if it connects even more dots than the above.

    Thank you x


  3. Keep up the awesomeness Wes! I like the reminder to ground, many times it’s easy to loft oneself into the stars and forget the Earth all together, without even knowing it! Thank you for the wise words and continuous support!


  4. As a young girl I had many realistic dreams .
    A very significant one was that
    I learned that my name was
    Celeste and I had to go back
    to earth , one more time. I also heard the word gatekeeper in this dream.
    I didn’t really want to leave the love that
    I was enveloped in , but I knew I had to.
    And I went back to earth. Then the dream was over.
    As a child , I also had many out of body
    experiences .
    I frequently dreamed of people before
    they actually die and also dreamed
    of ones that already passed.
    Now I am in my 50s and I have gone through
    A lot of near death experiences. I know that
    I assist souls crossing over in my dreams
    . I have tried to reasearch the word
    gatekeeper over the years but found
    nothing until recently . Like now .
    Is there a group online where we can
    discuss our experiences?
