"I should have been more specific, "new agers' have been waiting decades for the great shift that will usher in something different."
Not only New Agers but Catholic and Evangelical seers are receiving messages predicting that as well, and yes, they all are tired and disappointed as well, since all predictions have failed as well.

"Bringers of the Dawn, from which Op Terra borrowed heavily, is well over 15 years old."
I don´t see it that way. Operation Terra is original. In fact there is a similarity of vibration and even some expressions used in Bringers of the Dawn. To me this is just an indication that the Pleiadians participate the group who dictated Operation Terra, besides the Sirians as stated by Lyara. Even in Bringers of the Dawn the group who dictated is said to be the "Pleiadian plus", containing beings from another regions of the galaxy as well.
Bringers of the Dawn seems to me some sort of preparation for the real stuff, Operation Terra.
"Lots of new agers have probably died waiting for the grand shift that never happened."
How can we be sure that the grand shift has not occurred for them after death ? By the way Ascension happens in any epoch, for those who have completed their cycles of incarnations. For some, after death, since death is just the passage from 3D to 4D. And from 4D the person can drop the Astral Body and the Concrete Mental Body and progress to 5D, remaining just with the Abstract Mental Body and remainder higher bodies, Bhuddic, Atmic and the Monad or "I Am", this is Ascension, or return to 3D in a new incarnation.
A few have Ascended without leaving the body behind, which was then just completely consumed by the Ascension Flame and not even ashes remained.
This is more rare it seems, there are a few reports about that, Babaji for example, who was blessed with the transformation of his physical body into the Golden Immortal Body when he was just 16 years old, after a year and half of intensive yoga practices, under the orientation of his guru. This happened thousands of years ago.
There are reports of another yogis that have done that as well, for example Ramalinga, in the XIX Century.
