My name is Inelia Benz, and in 2010 I was asked by Source / Gaia / the human collective / the Planetary Council, to go public. At the time I didn’t know what this meant exactly, and the instructions were to simply “be myself” at a public level. To become “known” to people around the world. To “deliver the message of empowerment to the masses”.
Before this, I was writing books, mentoring individuals and supporting public figures and lightworkers, in their work to wake up and support the human collective. But, my name was kept small, my photo never shared, and I most certainly never did events or interviews. I was not available to the public to answer their questions, the public didn’t even know I existed. For me, an author was irrelevant. To me, when I read a good book, for example, it was the message that was important and the name of the author often eluded me. So, my work and books were what I felt was important, but my name, or being seen or being public, was not. In that equation my person or whether I was seen or not, was irrelevant. At the time, my books did sell very well and did give a lot of tools and information for people to use, but it was literally impossible for anyone to be able to contact me in person and most people didn’t even know my name or that I was a woman.
As a very private and solitary individual, the request to become publicly known didn’t really appeal to me one bit. I stated that this was not something that I felt comfortable with, or wanted, so my initial answer was, “no, find someone else.” Plus, why was it in any way interesting or important to show my face or tell people my name? I couldn’t understand it although I had always felt that the day might come when I would have to step into that role.
