From Wikipedia, thought you guys might want to know the history on your little religion. I was surprised it's popular enough to warrant a wikipedia article:
Although the purported method of communication resembled what is commonly referred to as "channeling", Van Tassel claimed to have established a new form of telepathic communication with extraterrestrial intelligences utilizing a method which included both natural human abilities and the use of an allegedly advanced form of alien technology, rather than the more traditionally "religious" non-technological spiritual medium based approach taken by many other early channelers of the era. Van Tassel maintained that the method he utilized was not a "paranormal" or "metaphysical" activity, but rather an example of the application of an allegedly advanced extraterrestrial science, that anyone could implement with the proper training.
Residing near a large boulder, situated in the desert of southern California called Giant Rock, in a UFO focused community he founded in 1947, the earliest messages Van Tassel claimed to have received from Ashtar were first presented to the public at an annual event called the Giant Rock Spacecraft Convention, which he himself organized. Van Tassel's early purported messages from Ashtar contained a great deal of apocalyptic material, which focused on concerns regarding the development of the soon to be tested hydrogen bomb. Van Tassel also claimed that Ashtar had provided specific messages that he was expected to pass on to the U.S. federal government regarding the potential negative impacts of the proposed upcoming bomb tests.
As the weekly channeling sessions at Giant Rock continued through the early 1950s, the Ashtar messages became much more elaborate and began to provide details of the purported existence of an extraterrestrial "government", which claimed to closely monitor activities on earth and offered material and spiritual support to its citizens. This concept of an "Ashtar Command" was appropriated for use by a number of prominent early channelers, both inside and outside the Giant Rock community, and was soon being utilized by several in the context of their own personal claimed messages from Ashtar, along with the use of the figure of Ashtar himself, originally developed by Van Tassel.
By 1955, a few well known channelers of the era, including Elouise Moeller, had incorporated the concept of an Ashtar Command and related ideas, as key components of their own developing systems. Several channelers, including Van Tassel himself, began publishing accounts which described predictions of the imminent arrival of an Ashtar-led UFO armada on earth, in order to guide and protect mankind. The public failure of these predictions had an enormous negative effect on the expansion of the Ashtar Command 'movement'. Without Van Tassel's role as a single authority constituting the sole source of messages from Ashtar, the movement became less cohesive and began to splinter from internal pressures. Several dozen channelers were simultaneously claiming to be obtaining, in some cases, competing authoritative messages directly from Ashtar. The overall movement began to wane in relative popularity because of infighting.
After decreasing in popularity within the New Age community for a period of roughly twenty years, the concept of an Ashtar Command was revitalized by a channeler named Thelma B. Terrill, (best known as "Tuella") who channeled messages and wrote a series of books on the subject in the 1970s and 1980s. Her work shifted the focus from Van Tassel's extraterrestrial technological model, to a more 'spiritualized' approach. Tuella's version of the Ashtar narrative tended to play down the necessity of the direct involvement of UFOs in human affairs, with the shift of importance being laid onto purely interior spiritual development as a means of reaching "higher dimensions" and receiving the assistance of Ashtar Command. Despite Tuella's influences, several channelers maintained a separate more UFO-based cosmology, which insisted on the importance of messages from Ashtar containing predictions of the imminent destruction of earth, and the need for a literal physical evacuation of the planet, with the assistance of the spacecraft of Ashtar Command. By the 1990s the movement began to splinter into factions once again.
One individual, named Yvonne Cole, who claimed to be channeling Ashtar messages from 1986, predicted the destruction of all earth civilizations and the arrival on the planet of various alien cultures in 1994. Cole claimed that governments were working with extraterrestrials to prepare for contact. These prophecies furthered the continued fracturing and disappointment within the movement when they failed to occur.
Despite these failures, by the mid-1990s, and continuing to present, several of these channeling groups began to utilize the Internet in order to promulgate their beliefs and to attempt to encourage a movement toward unifying the movement and establishing a single 'authoritative' source for all Ashtar messages. Individual channelers espousing messages which differed and continued to focus on themes such as the destruction of earth, were declared invalid. It was claimed that channelers who had avowed such messages in the past and continued to do so, had in fact been deceived by spiritual forces who opposed Ashtar's benevolent intentions. Most significantly of all, the new more unified movement declared that in future no new channeled messages from Ashtar would be accepted as valid unless they complied with criteria established by the recently formed and authoritative core group. The criteria consisted of a set of twelve "guidelines", which it was claimed established a baseline of 'orthodoxy' for the movement. After the alleged radio broadcast from Vrillon in 1977, they also began using the term Ashtar Galactic Command as opposed to simply Ashtar Command (see Southern Television broadcast interruption hoax for more details). Ashtar came to be depicted as commanding a fleet of dozens to hundreds of flying saucers continually monitoring Earth, and the being Vrillon came to be depicted as Ashtar's communications director. 
well perhaps i have the wrong kelly there are so many here but i think your the one who did as i say and well i have a blog that all who wish to hash things out with me are welcome to post on
basically i am getting sick of seeing all the drama caused by those who truly hate this site and all the ones here who are here to try to help others
i wish i could do something to change the fact there are so many so called trolls on site
i may be upset with you and others but i am not a mean person like some i can forgive and forget and do care about people so whatever floats the boats
i hope all who disagree with ashtar and what we represent will view the video and blog
Beautiful Rana Devendra Singh heart felt words that resonate very strongly within me :)
Liar liar pants on fire :)
WOW Drekx! Spoken like a true lightworker huh? So ironic.
Interesting thing about Ashtar Command, Kelly, did you know that you can archive all your messages so that they aren't deleted even if someone leaves the site? I have every message you have ever given me, which is sad, because I thought we were friends and I shared personal details of my life with you and I still have all of them.
I also have all of your rants, so enough with the miss innocent victim act, you are playing around with ego and I didn't want to take it to this point but you need a reality check on your behaviour.
Do some soul searching... I have everything you said about everyone else here, do you really want to go down that path? At the least you are seen as a dramatic self absorbed ignorant control freak who comes here to tell people how to be, you didn't change, you just changed sides.

Hi Reitz. New Age is not really a religion, nor is it "little," but it is popular, so thanks for this time line of some history.
New Age revelations about biblical history and spiritual reality date back to the late 19th, early 20th centuries so why does Wikipedia start with the Ashtar Command? Ashtar is the name of a Place, not really an Entity, but that is beside the point. The concern was that, the development of a nuclear holocaust threat would extinguish the human race(s), which are not of common origin, and represent an attempt to bring together different species of humans, to learn how to get along in the time and space dimensions of 3D, so that their efforts wouldn't disrupt Peace in the rest of the Universe.
Before talking about how those of higher dimensions communicate with 3D humans, a word about "truth."
Bits of truth are revealed to us in many ways. Think of a kaleidoscope. Do truths change, or do we see them in new ways? Our experiences filter how we see the truth manifesting in our lives, lives of others and histories of the world.
Many 3D humans express disappointment that time-lines of channels change. Predictions are interpretations of the meaning of truths as they interrelate at a given moment in time. It's an opportunity that exists at that moment in the perception of someone looking at the signs.
My vision of the future is different, still, for I have been following signs since childhood, seeing what might happen, nothing for sure. I see young families leaving the planet this summer, before unusual events occur, anticipating the possibility that there might not be another chance to leave, safely.
Is that prediction correct? Who knows? It's one of many possibilities. I see E.T.s landing in 2014, after the planet's leaders have made significant improvement in our ability to self-govern. Will it happen? Too soon to know.
The E.T.s try to prepare us for whatever may occur. Are predictions helpful, or not? They are for some. They upset others. Most threads are not about predictions, but about opening our hearts to others. Efforts to do this are often misunderstood, or disregarded because they lack specifics. I will think on this further before continuing.
Putting together the pieces of truth is hazardous, if we think our way is the only way, for experience is an unforgiving teacher, shredding what we thought we knew, making us try again, unless we give up trying.
Return to the thread, if you are able to do so without just finding a new way to say you are right, others wrong.
The article is about Ashtar on wiki, not about the new age. there is a wiki page for new age as well that details what you think that the ashtar article should contain.
You also just said you are right and he is wrong. So should YOU be coming back to this thread?
a quick gesture of thankyou towards those informative comments, theirs an obvious environment projected from them that opens my eyes to the true energy coming in. .
You are welcome Geo'a :)
And now I am being slandered for posting the truth about space weather to people who were just saying whatever cam into their heads about it. Let's not foget that for posting my fact one of them posted a pic giving the finger, and directed it at me. This is how they treat people. No wonder the gerat minds of humanity preferred solitude.
