The New Age and the False Light Matrix

By Wes Annac, The Culture of Awareness

There’s been a lot of talk lately about New Age teachings and the ‘false light matrix’ they apparently feed.

The idea behind it all is that the only way to liberate ourselves is to do away with all of the channelings and the teachings about ascending into the fifth dimension or creating a new earth, because they’re apparently traps that are meant to oppress us.

In their place, as others have said, should be a more authentic way to explore our consciousness, and I don’t know about any of you, but the idea that a new earth is some kind of trap by those pesky Archons just doesn’t sit well with me.

A lot of interesting yet confusing observations have been made about it, and to be honest, all of these contradictory perspectives on spiritual evolution are very discouraging.

Reading every New Age teaching and every perspective on them – good and bad – is making me want to detach from it all and go find some quiet place to sit in meditation and contemplation.

Like other people have said, all I know for sure is that love is the way. Love is everything, and the best way to spiritually evolve is to embrace it.

Love is my truth, and it’s the truth I want to follow. Everything else is starting to get so confusing and convoluted that it doesn’t seem worth my energy or attention, and I’m ready to detach from all these different perspectives on the New Age movement. Mainly because most of them are so negative.

I want inner peace, and all this contradictory spiritual information – some that claims channeling, ascension, the light, etc. are good and some that claims they’re a trap to keep us enslaved – makes it hard to find.

I’m ready to detach from it all and live in love, with the hope that this lifestyle will spread to others who’ve also been confused for the past couple months. Love and inner peace are the ways to enlightenment, and nothing else really matters to me right now.

It hurts my head to read all the perspectives on New Age spirituality that have emerged, and like I said before, it’s disappointing that the New Age movement has been turned into something we should all stay away from.

In fact, it’s currently being touted as something that was created by our oppressors to keep us from genuinely exploring our consciousness or coming back to the center of it all, which is love. I don’t know if I believe all that, but the people who’ve presented this theory are certainly convinced.

I can’t say I’m as into channeled messages or other components of the New Age movement as I once was, but the difference between me and a lot of other spiritual seekers is that I try not to condemn people who are into them. Sometimes I fail, but I’m trying and that’s all that matters to me.

Condemning New Age spirituality is the trendy thing to do right now (it’s basically the spiritual form of gluten-free food), but I have good friends who believe in certain aspects of the New Age movement, like channeling, and telling them their beliefs are wrong or designed to enslave them wouldn’t seem very accepting of me.

I’ve actually hurt people’s feelings by condemning aspects of the New Age movement that I thought were misaligned at the time (I don’t know what to think right now), and what seems to set me apart from others is that I could tell I was hurting people and I felt pretty bad about it.

If I’m completely honest with myself, I don’t know if channeling, ascension or other aspects of New Age spirituality are genuine. That hurts to say, because I want more than anything to believe.

I post channeled messages to the blog every now and then because channeling is how I started out and I don’t want people who believe in it to be left out, but I honestly don’t know if Archangel XXX actually exists or really communicates with us.

Nor do I know if Archon XXX poses as an archangel to siphon our energy. Honestly, how could anyone who’s still on earth claim to know something like that for sure? We might know for sure if we could peek beyond the veil, but for now, we have to rely on faith alone, no matter what we believe.

What I do know is that the conscious community’s respective philosophies are becoming so mixed and contradictory that getting away from it all and into a place of inner peace seems like the best course of action.

One corner of the conscious community believes we’re experiencing a collective ascension into a higher state of consciousness, which is commonly referred to as the fifth dimension.

I was a part of this corner when I first discovered spirituality and started doing spiritual work, and I have a lot of great friends and readers who are part of it. In fact, I probably wouldn’t be writing this if it weren’t for the channeling and ascension crowd, because they’ve supported my work through the years.

There’s another corner of the conscious community that seems to denounce New Age spirituality, and its numbers grow by the day. Even people who once believed in channeling, ascension and similar concepts are now denouncing them and encouraging others to do the same.

People are even starting to claim the entire concept of ascension is a hoax that’s been designed by the planetary controllers to keep us from empowering ourselves.

They achieve this by getting us to focus on channeled entities (who are really archons in disguise – boy, those guys can do everything) or other things that are apparently misaligned with genuine spiritual evolution.

It’s getting to the point that no spiritual territory seems safe anymore. It seems like spirituality itself will soon be denounced, discredited or claimed to be something that makes us subservient to the powers that be. It all seems very limiting, disempowering and, dare I say it, a little close-minded.

I’m not trying to say everyone who criticizes New Age spirituality is close-minded. I’m saying that everyone’s offering a different perspective – a perspective they’re wholly convinced is right – and in doing so, impeding on other spiritual seekers’ ability to decide for themselves what is and isn’t reality.

Sadly, most of the articles I’ve read that denounce the New Age actually encourage people to withdraw from any teachings that are related to channeling or ascension, as if everyone else’s spiritual decisions are the authors’ choice.

According to the philosophy that’s getting more and more popular, if we follow New Age teachings, we give our energy to the evil archons who use false light to enslave us in a ‘new earth’ hierarchical matrix that looks nice and fuzzy at the surface but traps us in the illusion forever, while the devil laughs and twirls his mustache.

All of this apparently happens when well-meaning spiritual seekers take advice from channeled angels.

And then there are the channeled messages themselves, some of which are decently levelheaded, and others, far too difficult to understand or even comprehend. I’m reaching a point where all I want is love, inner peace and a clear, basic spirituality that doesn’t go ridiculously far down the rabbit hole.

There are a few philosophies that resonate with me, and one is that we’re collectively evolving with the earth. I do believe there are entities on other levels of existence who we can communicate with if we’re open enough, but unlike before, I don’t claim to communicate with them.

Nor can I claim with any degree of certainty that anyone else is, because again, I haven’t been to the higher realms (yet) to confirm for myself.

I don’t think that believing in channeling or the New Age means we let archons siphon our energy or keep us unaware, but others believe that and that’s fine. It’s their path and I have no right to claim they’re wrong for thinking the way they do (but I can give my perspective).

Nor do they have the right, in my opinion, to claim anyone, even the people who believe in the wildest, craziest, new agey-ist teachings, are wrong for thinking the way they do.

We have to accept that we all have different perspectives when it comes to whatever the heck is happening right now, and almost all of us can agree that a shift is taking place.

We all define this shift differently, and I’m sure some people are denouncing it by now or claiming it’s an illusion the controllers have concocted to keep us enslaved. It seems like everything keeps us enslaved lately, even the things that seem to liberate us.

Maybe, just maybe, we’re giving the elite and the ‘archons’ who run them a little more credit than they deserve…

I guess the point I want to make is that we have to define our spirituality ourselves, and we can’t rely on any external source (whether it’s a channeled source or a well-meaning spiritual writer who believes the New Age is a trap) to tell us what is and isn’t reality.

Some spiritual seekers are very convinced of the conclusions they’ve come to about spirituality and the New Age, but the problem is when we try to force our conclusions onto other people, who are drawing their own conclusions based on their experiences and their inner search.

While someone over here concludes that the New Age is a trap created by the cabal to keep us enslaved, someone over there just concluded that we’re being visited by higher-dimensional guides who want to help us create a new world.

Both people are wholly convinced in this situation, and if they can’t accept each other, all they’re going to do is make each other feel bad about their beliefs. They might even duke it out on the internet, as people are prone to do, if they’re emotionally charged enough.

We have to draw our own conclusions and find our own way in the midst of all the contradictions and confusion, and while I’m not as passionate about New Age spirituality as I once was, it’s still a part of me and I still have good friends who believe in it.

I’m not about to denounce it like everyone else just to fit in with a crowd (the New Age nonbelievers), nor will I embrace it like I once did to fit in with another crowd (the New Age believers).

It’s unfortunate that we’ve divided ourselves like this, but I can only write so many articles about it before it becomes pointless. I hope we eventually learn to accept each other’s beliefs instead of boldly telling others to ditch the way they feel and adopt our beliefs because theirs are confining and ours will offer true liberation.

We’re falling into the same trap as religion, and I hope we realize it before the conscious community tears itself apart. To the believers in angels, archangels, ascended masters, and ascension itself, I say embrace your beliefs without pushing them onto others.

To those who don’t believe, I say the same: embrace the way you feel without being insulting or derogatory toward what you call ‘New Agers’. We’re all finding our own path, and we’re all crazy in the eyes of society anyway, so why should we divide ourselves?

Do your thing, let others do theirs, and maybe, just maybe, we can come together at some point in the future. If we present our philosophy as if it’s the only true one and demean others’ beliefs, however, we’ll hold ourselves back and play right into the elite’s hands.

Maybe they want us to be divided in the first place, because a divided spiritual community is a conquered spiritual community.

  1. I felt that same way. In the beginning of my spiritual search I couldn’t get enough channeled messages. I move away from most of them on my own. I only want to be the best I can be. That is my goal.


  2. Reblogged this on unity2013 and commented:
    I do think the new earth is really coming, is being created, now. Things are and will change so all have a nice clean place to live, all the food they want, have shelter and transportation, as well as be able to create and attract all they want and need into their lives. This to me is the new age, the 5D and higher vibrations. I also think we need to work on attracting all we need into our lives now. To me this means visualizing, attracting all the food I need, all the means to get it, ie money, for now. And work on creating things from thought, to be in the physical reality, creating things from nothing. And am working on this. Like creating more of something, like Jesus did with multiplying the loaves and fish, we can do this. We just need to practice and believe we can. So I challenge you to think about this and try.

  3. I agree with your idea that this causes division and that has been a constant ploy, so why not hit this group? Just like religion, that has caused mostly confusion, even to the point of us sacrificing our children to be fodder in their fabricated wars Thank you for your insights I think we are to be our own authority (in all matters)


  4. This is why I go 100% on my own feelings. I use my own discernment and don’t worry about what anyone says about anything. I can say for sure that if it were all true, the dark side would have powerful motives for wanting us to turn away from it. And they wouldn’t stop at hiring people, bloggers, “experts”, etc., or various forms of mind control to achieve their goals. Divide and conquer is one of their favorite tactics.

  6. Beautifully said Wes! I think someone tried to make us throw the baby out with the bathwater. But while it’s confusing or maybe even, a minefield out there, if it makes people get stronger and more self-aware once again they lose!


  7. Thank you, Wes, for stating much of how I have been also feeling. I do know that what I have read from the anti-New Agers is very negative and even scary, if you allow yourself to be captured by it. This is really an excellent time to exercise personal discernment and to see for yourself what fits and what does not. I have learned that resonance can change and will change depending on how open your heart and mind are. I am still channeling a few messages, but also don’t seem to be as much “into it” as before. Self-awareness and seeking within is really where people need to go. And there are many ways to approach spirituality. It’s up to each individual to learn to take responsibility and discern their own path. I’ve never appreciated attempts by other people attempting to shove something down my throat in terms of belief systems. In the end, they are all “systems” and inherently temporary in nature. We can adjust and change individually faster if we keep our own hearts and minds on the real goal, re-union and communication with Source. However which way we approach does not matter in the end as Source loves and accepts us as we are NOW… Eliza


    • Thanks so much, Eliza. This comment contains a lot of wisdom, and I agree that the best way to go is to search within. As long as we all do that, I don’t think it matters what we believe. Much love! 🙂


  8. I reposted this on Deus Nexus and added:

    I’ve shared many of the same feelings and concerns that Wes brings up in his post below, and I am grateful that he has opened his heart to write about them. These feelings of discouragement with the negativity and confusion spread by some “former New Age” sites inspired me to write: to seek to rebalance the conversation.

    Where the New Age movement moves from self-awareness, awakening, transformation, and personal enlightenment toward blind hope, rigid belief, and religious dogma there is opportunity for abuse and misinformation. Yes, there are spirits who wish to deceive, if they find a willing host. But the greatest damage the Darkness can do is to get us to distrust ourselves and the inherent goodness of the Universe around us, attempting to isolate us from the loving assistance of the Light. If we open our minds, but close our hearts, then we are already defeated. A spiritual struggle of perception is not just about the beliefs in your mind – it’s about the condition of your heart.


  9. I believe in spirituality! I believe in peace and love and all that comes with it like the world peace movement. I have many psychic abilities so I also believe in channelled messages! I also believe that we should keep to our own path where ever it takes us with in the spirituality realm as we all learn differently and are at different levels of understanding! I also know from experience that we live in an inter dimensional realm. This thing we call 3D reality is but only a very small fraction of the many realities that are available to us! 3D reality is just a vibration like a radio station. If you want another station you have to tune into it. Most don’t know how or take the time to learn how (meditate) because of being preoccupied with their current life.

    Having said all of that I caution those like the writer of this article that hide their head in the sand and thinking your world is all rainbows and bunnies. It is not…it is like our current reality with the bankers, politicians and law makers who take advantage of all of us daily…this is a proven fact. Most of us run around like chickens with our heads cut off trying to pay our bills for things we don’t need in our must have now society. Most of us live with a thing called a JOB (just over broke)The world elite have taken advantage of 99% of the world population by media, war, fear, religion, lack of money, broken education system, disinformation etc. Very few of us will never really have happy lives if we are always divided with hate and fear. We are always worrying about trying to keep up with the Jones’s. We really need to get back to protecting Gaia. It is currently the only planet we have and if we destroy it we destroy ourselves as well. Oh I know you won’t have to worry about it as you will not be around. What about your children. Are we going to leave this mess for our kids. The buck stops here! We all have to take responsibility for our actions and our current reality!

    When you watch your movies or TV series, each of them, most of them have dual messages. One for the sleeping person who sees the movie as just a movie. The other message is for those who have the eyes to see and the ears to listen to the subtle messages that our producers want us to see and hear. The producers cannot show a movie for what it really is or they would be out of a job and eliminated as many actors and producers have accident that look like over doses or simple accidents etc. who speak out! There are literally thousands of them here are a few that come to mind. Wizard Of Oz, Wag the Dog, Mona Lisa Smile, In Time. Lots of symbolism, look for it.

    I know some of the readers of this article have already judged me as a conspiracy theorist (term coined by the world elite to keep the readers on the other side of the fence) also known as cognitive dissonance. I think of my self as a truth seeker at what ever the cost! Unfortunately I cannot write all of my findings in a small article that has taken me a life time (40+ years) to research and I don’t expect most people to listen to a word I say as most are like the writer of the article considered sheeple in my world….(no judgement).

    Having said all of the above! What if we are living in a Matrix hidden from our view? What if there is a Demi-urge (two factions good and evil posing as one)? The bad negative ones which include arcons, some greys, reptilians etc. which capture all the negative vibrational energies….hence all the wars and separation on our planet. and the ones who appear to us as good (the masters, angels guides etc.). the ones who we channel to who act like they are good and we pray to them and spill our guts out to them freely with our positive vibrational energy! Ancient information which has been written in most of our ancient culture writings around the world dating back 10,000 years or more! Why is our human history not what is seems? Why is our history hidden from us i.e. partial truths and lies etc. this is all fact if one takes the time to seek this information out! All I ask is do your own due diligence and find out the real truth of our human history and where it takes you.

    OK…So who do you trust? I trust me and my higher self and those my soul trust!

    I have my own concept of how to stop this reincarnation business. This perpetual recycling of souls from one lifetime to another. Each new life time our memories are wiped clean so we get to start at the beginning again. Each reincarnation we forget who and what we really are and where we should be. Planned this way so we don’t know too much. Each new incarnation our captors fully take advantage of us using us and we allow it because we don’t know any better because we are still asleep! I would rather have a free soul to be roaming all dimensions at will not trapped in the incarnation process of the lower dimensions of a 3D world and not know it because I have been brain washed yet again!



  10. I believe in the goodness of the Universe and that there is a good/ perfect plan or reason for everything that is happing. So when we started to receive so many different messages from the higher spirits I asked myself what the actual effect was on us or what could be the meaning of the Universe for allowing so much confusion.
    I took a step back to look at things from a detached point. I saw how at first we were at a stage where we were clinging to the masters to guide us and show the way to find our inner love.
    Then there was chaos because we heard a lot of different things. So we started to feel that we could not fully rely on the messages.
    I remembered that the masters told us that they were teaching us to become masters ourselves.
    That is why I think that the reason for the chaos could lay in the fact that it is showing us the way but not in every sense so we do not get the chance to only rely on the masters. Because I think that that is what we would do if there was no chaos. This way is helping us to rely on our own judgement. It is learning us to trust on our own inner knowing.
    It has learned me to trust on my own experiences. I still read channelings but only the ones that appeal to me. I have noticed that these messages make perfect sense.


  11. I thought I was the only one speaking out against the “New Age” but apparently it’s trendy??? God Forbid I should follow any trend! Although the New Age is very trendy I s’pose and that’s why I’m jumping out of it ha ha. I’ve been involved in the New Age for knockin on 30 years and while it isn’t completely full of it (shit) it is nothing to put our faith in. It is a heady cocktail of truth and lies.


  12. I really appreciate your honest and clear writing. I especially love your focus on the most important aspect of being human, and that is love. It saddens me that humans all too often resort to an adversarial model to deal with their respective realities. One of the worst examples is the current legal system. I, too, do not want to judge anyone based on their beliefs, but I am very cautious about jumping on any philosophical “bandwagon” due to the fact that leaders of such ideological realms can become dogmatic and lose their original focus. I want to continue to love and support people, regardless of the fact that I may not fully agree with their philosophies. Thank you for being the type of person that reminds me that I am on the right track!
