Ashtar Command – Galactic Federation – Unofficial

Ashtar Command – Unofficial perturbations of course…

First of all I want to give you fair warning. Taht there are discrepancies is no secret and there is much confusion about the role of the Ashtar, the Ashtar Command and the Galactic Federation and even if they exist. Although this page is about the Ashtar Command unofficially, you’ll find some excellent historical events that indicate there is something interacting for universal impact on humans and their ability to achieve harmony among people and planet. George Van Tassel was one of the first notable figures to bring discussion of UFOs to the public.

Rev. Robert Short, under the Blue Rose Ministry, attempted to use the Ashtar Command as some kind of force majeure against an unknown and powerful cabal. George disavowed Bob and his foundation as a result. Federation policy is non-invasive and non-threatening in assisting a civilization’s evolution toward sustainability, then toward the friendly stars. We’ve learned they are all friendly, just don’t have the manners we might expect. I’ve had my share of conversations with Bob over the years and he continues to want to fight the intangible as though there is a good and evil force involved. In spite of our disagreements he and Shirley have remained friends until their passing. I first met Bob, along with Dr. Frank Stranges, Wes Bateman in the late 1980s.

When I first heard of the Ashtar Command I was extremely skeptical. On the other hand, I also understood that it was highly likely that there is a galactic organization of some sort. I wanted to know more, rather compelled I might add. I knew I’d had some experiences as a youth, perhaps bi-weekly from around 8 – 10 (1965-67), that were described in a Ruth Montgomery’s Strangers Among Us that fell off the shelf in front of me in a bookstore in Muncie, Indiana just before moving to Arizona in 1981. It was a few years later that I heard the term being used in UFO discussion groups. More on personal experiences linked at the bottom of this page.

In the late 1980s is when my open involvement in the field of Ufology began as an exploration to find out more about Ashtar and Athena, the Ashtar Command and the Galactic Federation. I knew my life was rather anomalous already, orphaned at birth and orange-cloud engagements before I was ten years old. I have an insatiable curiosity with critical thinking that isn’t dismissive and a highly intelligent mind that seems to come up with the right questions that seem obvious, yet often go unasked.

Among the synchronistic events was seeing April and Stephen White (channelers of Ashtar and Athena) after seeing their display advertisement just under an article I had published in a local metaphysical newspaper. During the event, their attention (while channeling) was noticeably on me even though I was several rows back and off to the side amongst the 100+ attendees. I’m certainly not the embellishing type. Their eyes were both closed most of the time, though when I ‘asked within’ if they were looking at me, both opened their eyes and looked directly at me. It was kinda spooky cool, though. They spoke of the Command and its functionality from both organizational and societal perspectives. It seemed as though I was understanding much more than just their words and it felt a bit strange to me then.

A month later I was investigating a member-group seeking membership in the New Age Alliance (an organization of member-groups in the Phoenix Metro area), whose mission was to present a code of ethics and responsibilities toward people and planet for the new age. The group’s focus was around an entity named Jabar, channeled by Lauren Schmidt. Without provocation (or knowledge of me) during the channeling, Jabar asked me if I knew who my parents were (I did not) and after pressing to know if I really wanted to know, proceeded to tell me they were Ashtar and Athena. I actually blocked the answer and all I heard were the beginning ‘A’s. I had to ask my 9 year old daughter sitting next to me what he had said. I was a little embarrassed, actually. I’ve got much more of a story, though I digress.

Back to the Details

Early human pioneers risked a lot by stepping out and sharing their experience. The first response from the public has always been disbelief and often ridicule. I’ve experienced that as well. Speaking about these events in my life, things that happened without any provocation from me directly, does sound a bit incredulous I have to admit. Keeping personal experience out of the equation is a challenge, though I’ll do my best to regard myself as another silly human attempting to talk about things beyond my understanding that are part of my normal daily living.

You will have to determine for yourself whether these things I share are true or not. I don’t think an organization spanning who knows how long would change their core competencies and values in such a short time. Shy of stopping total destruction, what we’ve come to know as the ‘prime directive’ just makes sense. Having contact seems incredulous, yet it is happening to many. We don’t really know how many because folks are reluctant to talk still. According to survey responses of thousands, in fact, at least the first standard deviation (68%) of the experiences were benign of benevolent, perhaps even closer to the second deviation (95%) in most areas. That’s significant. It’s statistical as well, even though the data was from subjective experiences.

The name ‘Ashtar Command‘ has become most popular as a reference point for certain ‘messages’ from various folks who claim to be messengers, though many seem to use it like Bob and include some reference to an impending action on some non-specific cabal. Although well-intended, it’s a very human-centric perspective the Command just does not have a need to portray. They work in the realms of consciousness we haven’t even begun to explore as a disciplined approach to evolving our awareness. Keep in mind that ‘Command’ does not necessarily denote a military mindset or structure as most humans would assume. It does offer the kind of nomenclature indicative of a military-influenced civilization, which is again human-centric.

The origin of the Ashtar Command was probably in the 1950s, beginning with George Adamski and George Van Tassel. It all started for Van Tassel while living under a rock, literally; what is now called Giant Rock. He leased the area from the Bureau of Land Management after the minor who excavated under the rock died in an explosion while working on it. Van Tassel also managed an airfield close by, was an aircraft mechanic and flight inspector. He held events at Giant Rock for some years as well. Before that all happened, it started with…

A Message from… ASHTAR

Let’s look at the first message known to be from Ashtar that came through George Van Tassel.

July 18, 1952

Hail to you beings of Shan, I greet you in love and peace, my identity is Ashtar, commandant quadra sector, patrol station Schare, all projections, all waves.

Greetings, through The Council of the Seven Lights, you have been brought here inspired with the inner light to help your fellow man. You are mortals and other mortals can only understand that which their fellow man can understand.

The purpose of this organization is, in a sense, to save mankind from himself. Some years ago your time, your nuclear physicists penetrated the “Book of Knowledge”; they discovered how to explode the atom.

Disgusting as the results have been, that this force should be used for destruction, it is not compared to that which can be.

We have not been concerned with their explosion of plutonium and UR 235, the Uranium mother element; this atom is an inert element. We are concerned, however, with their attempt to explode the hydrogen element.

This element is life giving along with five other elements in the air you breathe, in the water you drink, in the composition of your physical substance, hydrogen.

Their efforts in the field of science have been successful to the extent that they are not content to rest on the laurels of a power beyond their use, not content with the entire destruction of an entire deity at a time. They must have something more destructive, they’ve got it.

When they explode the hydrogen atom, they shall extinguish life on this planet. They are tinkering with a formula they do not comprehend. They are destroying a life giving element of the Creative Intelligence.

Our message to you is this: you shall advance to your government all information we have transmitted to you. You shall request that your government shall immediately contact all other earth nations regardless of political feelings.

Many of your physicists, with an inner perception development have refused to have anything to do with the explosion of the hydrogen atom.

The explosion of an atom of inert substances and that of a living substance are two different things. We are not concerned with their deliberate determination to extinguish humanity and turn this planet into a cinder.

Your materialism will disagree with our attempt to warn mankind. Rest assured, they shall cease to explode life giving atoms, or we shall eliminate all projects connected with such.

Our missions are peaceful, but this condition occurred before in this solar system and the planet, Lucifer (perhaps aka Maldek), was torn to bits. We are determined that it shall not happen again.

The governments on the planet Shan have conceded that we are of a higher intelligence, they must concede also that we are of a higher authority. We do not have to enter their buildings to know what they are doing. We have the formula they would like to use. It is not meant for destruction.

Your purpose here has been to build a receptivity that we could communicate with your planet, for by the attraction of light substances, atoms, we patrol your universe.

To your government and to your people and through them to all governments and all people on the planet of Shan, accept the warning as a blessing that mankind may survive.

My light, we shall remain in touch here at this cone of receptivity. My love, I am Ashtar 

Alrightythen… The only direct intervention would occur if the destruction of Earth was imminent. Missile silos all over the world were ‘shut off’ by visiting craft during the 1960s. Humanity’s ability to get along was of concern, but no direct intervention would ever take place except to save Shan (Earth) from destruction. Ashtar has never used the term ‘Ashtar Command’ and in fact, has never used the term ‘Galactic Federation’ either. Those are human terms, though there is an organizational administration of evolving humans naturally as designed. It has been said that humans do not understand there is no ‘junk’ in their DNA. It all has purpose in the development of awareness and the capacity to interact galactically.

We’ve grown to understand that projections and waves are non-linear and connected to the inner light in humans. It is that connection that persists throughout creation. We call it God, Love, Energy, Source, Great Spirit and more, yet as Mortals we have little direct experience and, hence, understanding of this energy to date. Quantum science has recognized it is available, though. Multidimensional frameworks are theoretical for mathematicians in particle physics, yet they are real in a sense of the interaction of an intelligence across a field of consciousness. Human brains aren’t capable of quantum thinking, yet.

Let’s look at physical structure for just a moment. Every element has a proton, neutron and electron structure except one – hydrogen. We might say that the ‘trinity’ resides in the microcosm of the atom with one exception. Why? Decades later it was found that hydrogen is the bonding agent for the DNA helix. It powers our Sun, too, in its natural state. Why would we need to convert or destroy it simply because we can? Where is the wisdom in that? In another text during the same decade, Wilbert Smith (Canada’s chief UFO investigator) noted that humans do not understand the physics of advanced civilizations, let alone that each human has a focal point for incarnation. We consider the notion of a point of light within, though we do not comprehend the reality of it.

The Command and Federation

When considering the Galactic Federation, the Ashtar Command is the localized branch of a network of infinite intelligence administrated by highly advanced beings that monitors and serves developing planetary civilizations. The natural order of creation is in the nature of order. Our math theories are as flawed as our belief in good and evil. The network is so well connected that each node, i.e. humans incarnate, has a registry file in the system. The system is designed for the files to be compatible, though subroutines are required to complete before advancing further. Each has a form, fit and function in the world and others simultaneously, though they may not be aware for many lifetimes. When cosmic events occur, a shift in age or movement from one sector of space into another, change is accelerated in accordance with the state of entropy.

We do know that consciousness, space and time are likely tethered across dimensions. Neppe and Close posit there are 9 dimensions involved with our individual consciousness, starting from the third perhaps? Constructs across the spheres of consciousness from Smith’s boys from up top include 12 dimensions of 3 quadratures each. We don’t really know what that means, only that there are three fields involved: electric, magnetic and tempic. What we do know is that communication across dimensions is nearly impossible to maintain at present. More here

Many are purporting direct intervention with humanity as acts to counter ‘cabal’ activity. This is not consistent with the intention of the Federation, based on initial information. However, they were responsible for evacuating parts of Earth around 26,000 years ago when a great shift took place. Vast civilization disappeared then. According to the only past life regression I’ve done, I was here then and instrumental in carrying out the evacuation. (full story in this free download: Zendor the Barbarian Part Deux)

Humanity has recovered since and now faces great choices, but the ‘Federation’ is only limited to indirect interaction, through various forms of telepathy and psychokinesis. Einstein said we cannot change the course of things with the same thinking that created it. Consciousness is the key and we have a lot to learn, even slow on the uptake as we are now. There have been some physical emissaries purported to have interaction with government officials. Wilbert Smith was one of those government officials. Another author who had experiences with Ascended Masters was also a government official in the 1920s, Guy Ballard. The fortitude and perseverance it takes for them is unimaginable to humans in my experience. It’s by design in their world. According to Smith’s information, all governments were made aware of the people from elsewhere during that period of time. Obviously the first warning wasn’t heeded.


Some years later after a lack of results, another transmission was delivered via a British TV news program.

26 November, 1977

This is the voice of Vrillon, a representative of the Ashtar Galactic Command, speaking to you. For many years you have seen us as lights in the skies. We speak to you now in peace and wisdom as we have done to your brothers and sisters all over this, your planet Earth.

We come to warn you of the destiny of your race and your world so that you may communicate to your fellow beings the course you must take to avoid the disaster which threatens your world, and the beings on our worlds around you. This is in order that you may share in the great awakening, as the planet passes into the New Age of Aquarius. The New Age can be a time of great peace and evolution for your race, but only if your rulers are made aware of the evil forces that can overshadow their judgments.

Be still now and listen, for your chance may not come again.

All your weapons of evil must be removed. The time for conflict is now past and the race of which you are a part may proceed to the higher stages of its evolution if you show yourselves worthy to do this. You have but a short time to learn to live together in peace and goodwill.

Small groups all over the planet are learning this, and exist to pass on the light of the dawning New Age to you all. You are free to accept or reject their teachings, but only those who learn to live in peace will pass to the higher realms of spiritual evolution.

Hear now the voice of Vrillon, a representative of the Ashtar Galactic Command, speaking to you. Be aware also that there are many false prophets and guides operating in your world. They will suck your energy from you – the energy you call money and will put it to evil ends and give you worthless dross in return.

Your inner divine self will protect you from this. You must learn to be sensitive to the voice within that can tell you what is truth, and what is confusion, chaos and untruth. Learn to listen to the voice of truth which is within you and you will lead yourselves onto the path of evolution.

This is our message to our dear friends. We have watched you growing for many years as you too have watched our lights in your skies. You know now that we are here, and that there are more beings on and around your Earth than your scientists admit.

We are deeply concerned about you and your path towards the light and will do all we can to help you. Have no fear, seek only to know yourselves, and live in harmony with the ways of your planet Earth. We of the Ashtar Galactic Command thank you for your attention. We are now leaving the plane of your existence. May you be blessed by the supreme love and truth of the cosmos.”

Again, the admonition is for humanity to collaborate in removing life-threatening activities and to live in harmony with Nature. At no time has there been an indication of direct intervention. All projections and waves work at the inner level, humanity (individuals) have to act on their own and in concert, meaning collaboration is key.

It is my awareness that any channelings or messages that include direct interaction with any element of government are simply well-wishing ideas and NOT associated with the Command or Federation. These errant channelings and messages do more to create complacency and laziness among humanity and in so doing, retards the action of developing harmony among people and planet.

Another ‘accepted’ vehicle for transmissions from Ashtar was Tuella, aka Thelma Terrell. In the early 80s Ashtar had this to say…

“Now we take further steps, because of the shortness of time… The time WE DARE to expose our most secret strategy… we dare to expose our plans to come out into the open and send proof of our presence… to silence for ever arguments and denials of our overshadowing protection… We dare to reveal our representatives and their identities, for no harm can come to them. We shall simply remove them from your midst if you were to attempt to harm them in any way.”

Now that statement seems to indicate disclosure, eh? It goes on…

“They are citizens of your planet, who have lived with you, suffered with you, walked with you and truly been one of you. Now we call them forth to admit their identity, to be gathered together to spend a brief time with us that they might return to you and share with you the facts and the proofs of our existence and the truths of our words.”

Significant correlation occurred in August 2002 with a simple crop circle message; pictorial of an almond-eyed ET and binary disc included.

The binary disc decoded: “Beware of the bearers of gifts and the broken promises. Much pain but still time. Believe there is good out there. We oppose the deceivers. The conduit is closing.”

The only deception happens within humanity’s thoughtmosphere, within the mind. It is not possible in any other state of consciousness among the projections and waves. Anytime attention is diverted from actions congruent with an empowered humanity it is suspect. There are many who continue to promote Federation intervention with government and so-called ‘cabal’ activity for decades, always alluding to some impending action or announcement. None of which have come to fruition. That alone should cause one to question the messengers.

ASHTAR may very well be the acronym for a cosmic computer, one that we cannot even fathom as it has bio-tech and connect-ability with bandwidth beyond belief. We can barely comprehend what goes on in the 3-D world. Image 9 other dimensions that have to be managed by an administration of sorts. We cannot even fathom people from elsewhere and their understanding of natural law and order. How could we possibly understand a BEing or many associated with that one as a ‘Command’ with duties and responsibilities of disseminating information to those prepared to receive it? Acting upon it is another story, especially with multidimensional perspectives.

ANY message that contains emotional language is not from elsewhere, and certainly not Ashtar. That’s strictly a human characteristic. Almost without exception, messages are communicated to individuals and not collectives, except in the few cases above which our governments and scientists did not and will not acknowledge. Our governments have been informed of their presence, over a half-century ago and still their warnings have not been heeded. They aren’t warnings about take-overs, they are warnings about our ignorance of the nature and structure of creation. We, as humans, see things as separate or as material when in actuality there is no material world. It’s all vibrating strings, spinning around a central point. Large collections of points need a little extra leadership and management.

From another ‘messenger’ and relatively unknown figure, though his accomplishments were great, Wilbert Smith: “Our physical senses are very limited and we can observe directly only certain aspects of our Universe, and these only within strictly limited ranges. However, as our understanding increases we are able to devise ways and means for extending our sense both in range and scope, which in turn leads to better understanding. But we must always remember in thus extending our senses to distinguish between the language of observation and its translation into the language of our senses, lest we miss the phenomenon while inspecting its effect. Also, since the information we get through extensions of our senses is essentially “second hand”, we must be doubly sure that it is truly what we think it is, that it is in fact “the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.” ” from The New Science

Now, on the other hand in addition to the five fingers… Some more details for consideration.
