Crop Circles, Nazca Lines: A Perspective

Thanksgiving is a time to honour our blessings, to look to the future, and remember our past, but not to dwell on it. It is a gift to be able to live in the sacred moment of Now, holding a perspective of present and past; even future. For that it is sometimes useful to look to the stars.

Nobody wants to be bogged down by deadlines, traffic jams, daily pressures which business imposes on our lives, but they are a reality. The gift is not to allow those pressures to impinge on our conscious-ness ALL of the time: to set aside some moment, daily, for what’s going on INSIDE, not outside in our lives. The trick to maintaining a healthy mind within a body that’s built to withstand some stresses is simple: it’s called switching off.

Everyone needs to switch off, to become unglued, to take a Holiday. That’s why Thanksgiving is such a huge celebration in the American continent: the international home of Big Bizness. This time of gratitude covers every race, creed, religious sect and subgroup: everybody celebrates. A timeout that takes us away from the increasing world pressure to ‘take care of business’. It gives us an overview of life; if only for one weekend in the year.

With a feeling of joy for what we are grateful for in our lives comes a per-spective on how our lives have turned out; from where we started. We look at the last year and give thanks: for our home, our family and our friends. Sometimes we give thanks for a lot of years: and see how our past has become our present.

They say it’s not good to dwell in the past. However there are some lessons from the past that we, with the miracle of technology, may use. They teach us to hold an overview.

Yes. Crop circles, among others, point the way.

Over the last decade we’ve been treated to a deluge of them: now more than a mere curiosity: they are perhaps showing us how to ‘be’.

Using techniques as diverse as pictograms, mathematics, animal and nature symbolism and digital ‘language’, these crop glyphs have become increasingly sophisticated and, like our own society and consciousness, their influence is expanding.

Last summer alone brought eye-witness reports from unbiased observers who believe personally and irrevocably in their ‘power’ to convert. Visitors to crop circles have experienced a ‘transformation’, feeling of ‘oneness’, a change in conscious-ness, a sensation of love for their fellow beings. These human emotions are backed up by changes and fluctuations in on-the-ground readings monitored by digital and electronic equipment used to measure the electromagnetic flow.

Even for those of us not conversant in the language of mathematics, the evidence has already brought the scientific community on board. Carl Sagan, astrophysicist and author of ‘Cosmos’, said before he died in 1996 at the age of 62: ‘Mathematics is the Rosetta Stone of the Universe’. This interpretive Rosetta Stone is evident in enough crop circles to satisfy the most skeptic mathematician.

Gerald Hawkins, the great Cambridge Observatory scholar, astronomer and author of ‘Stonehenge Decoded’ and ‘Beyond Stonehenge’, wrote an amazing treatise on Euclidean Geometry in Crop Circles and their relationship to Diatonic Ratios – also shown in crop circle imagery. His primary interest before he died in 2003 was work on his archaeo-astronomical computer devised at Cambridge, Mass (in the days before computers were commonplace) to calculate the placements of stones within Stonehenge and other British stone circles and their alignment to rising and setting sun, moon and constellations. The fact that his interest was transferred in later life to discussing similarities in sacred geometry with crop circle designs is a huge statement of support for their precision and authenticity.

It is intriguing to note that a crop circle of perfect sacred geometric pyramidal proportion appeared in July 2009 in a field next to a defunct observatory (now converted to a windmill) built in 1632 by astronomer Sir Edward Peyto to house his simple telescope. Like the crop circle which appeared in a field next to the Chilbolton radio telescope in 2002, the message would appear to be saying, once again, look to the stars.

Take another form of Kornkreis symbolism: images depicting birds, insects: the dragonfly, the human butterfly, the honeybee and bumblebee; swallows: all symbolic of flying, reaching beyond ourselves into the stratosphere of consciousness, beyond our mortal coil: suggesting our need to connect with our higher selves, superconscious, looking perhaps to encourage Mankind to connect as one, as a collective conscioiusness; holy, whole.

In this respect the crop circle phenomenon is reminiscent of a cultural device used by ancient civilizations to instruct their people in a religious fervor and belief in their gods, which would gather them together and guide them through difficult times: in creating images of superbeings directing their lives, kings and emperors and rulers of all ancient empires were able to use mass belief to maintain harmony and rhythm in daily lives. The Egyptians’ pantheon is superb: gods and goddesses carved in stelae, tombs and great city walls were depicted as immortal effigies of the pharaohs themselves, the god-king of their people whose power was omnipotent. Assyrians did it. Greeks and Romans followed suit, with temples, statues, sculptural images and mural art of astonishing beauty.

Perhaps the Peruvian rulers and god-kings of the Andes ought to be placed in this category; for they, too, had a way of subjugating their people and using their labour to create beautiful, if taltalisingly obscure symbols: the Nazca Lines.

Stretching for hundreds of miles through the Altiplano Peruvian high desert, the lines form geoglyphs cleared in the land surface. Made by Nazca laborers, they follow riverbeds that flow from the Andes. This high desert terrain stretches for over 1400 miles along the Pacific coast and the Pampa Colorada, or Red Plain of deep red sandstone where Nazca art was created, runs 15 miles inland and for 37 miles alongside the Andes. Nazca workers cleared the surface of stones, revealing lines of lighter clay underneath. Because of its dry climate (humidity quotient almost zero), these imprints have remained in the landscape for the last millennium and a half.

Like their modern counterpart the crop circles, appearing regularly throughout recent summers in English fields, the Nazca lines show not only geometric and conceptual shapes, but also glyphs of animals and plants in stylized form. Like crop circles, the Nazca lines are most spectacular when viewed from the air.

Because of our programming as a society, taught for millennia to believe what we see in our three-dimensional world, it has taken us all of the last hundred years even to agree with Einstein that the possibility of a fourth dimension is conceivable. Only now are we beginning to realize that the suggestion, taught for centuries by esoteric spiritual disciplines, that we are part of an even-greater Whole of seven, nay, twelve, perhaps infinite dimensional realities, may have validity: that we may indeed be sending ourselves messages to trigger our soul memory that it is time to wake up and become the spiritual beings we were intended to be.

We Are The Ones We Have Been Waiting For. It has a ring to it.


Yatesbury Phoenix appeared June 2009

It is tempting to conclude, therefore, that our own group consciousness, that ever-expanding nebulous concept which our linear-embedded society has until now refused to conceive as a genuine possibility, is sending us messages embedded in our beautiful planet earth. And each summer, not only are they getting more beautiful, more complex and more meaningful, but they are triggering in us a desire, like the mythical Phoenix, to rise from the ashes of our past and become, as they suggest, the star-children of our dreams: the ones we have been waiting for.

Looking to and from the stars: are we indeed beginning to see the stellar perspective?

Hologram of Time and Sacred Endings, 2012

November 14, 2009

spiralling through time

On the time spiral headed for 2012

In a deluge of blogs about 11:11, Veterans’ memorial services, poppy day and the like, it is easy to forget that we are spiralling inexorably, one day at a time, towards another date of elevens: November 11, 2011; and then, BANG into the great 12:12:12 date, nine (Gregorian) days before the end of the Great Cycle on December 21, winter solstice 2012, the last date in the Maya Sacred Calendar.

As great calculators, theirs is one of the few remaining World Calendars that still makes some degree of sense. The Celts had a sophisticated calculation based on lunar months which lasted well into the medieval period. Julius Caesar’s great innovation was originally also lunar, but not versatile enough to include more than ten months and, by the end of Roman rule, was already out of date. The extra two ‘moons’ which had to be added in medieval monasteries to balance out the solar year made a mockery of his calculations.

Have you ever noticed that the last four months which we call September, October, November and December are in fact names based on the Latin numbers septem, octo, novem, decem, seven, eight, nine and ten; Caesar’s original ten? The months added to make twelve, before the Gregorian calendar redressed the balance, were June and July (and July was, of course, named for its caesarean creator).

The Julian calendar was superceded by the Gregorian in most European nations, when Julian calculations went wildly out of synch with the solar year and whole cultures realized they were missing large chunks of time. The Russians refused to catch up, only adding their quota of 10 missed days in 1752. By then the Western world was calculating by the sun and in another mindset.

Other cultures have their own unique way of calculating: we are currently in Jewish Year 5770 since the date of Creation. In the current Islamic lunar calendar of 355 days this year is 1430 anno Hegirae, from the date of the Hijra, when the prophet Mohammed migrated from Mecca to Medina.

In all these Old World computations, time is seen as a linear concept.

Sacred calendar of the Maya: the Long Count

Maya Long Count calendar ends on 13.0..0.0, winter solstice 2012

In the Sacred Long Count Calendar of the Maya, however, time was seen as a spiral or hologram, where each age condensed and collapsed into a logarithm or microcosmos of the one immediately prior. The term used by the Maya for Man’s Great Sacred Ages of Time was ‘Underworlds’. There were believed to be nine Underworlds and as we progress as earth beings through each Underworld, we swim, slither, creep, crawl, walk-on-all-fours and finally stand as creatures subject to our own evolution; in ‘now’-time, we are evolving as a species into our Godselves at such a rate that the calendar’s ending in 2012 seems to be right on target. End of Time. Time as a linear concept comes to a close.

Ages of Man, Spiral of Time

In a spiralling time capsule that collapses and kaleidoscopes with each passing age, however, each successive timeframe is not only a progression on the last, but, according to Maya calculations, 20 times shorter than its predecessor.

Taking time from its ‘origins’ in 100,496BC until the Calendar of the Maya begins in 3114BC, the count is a period of 97,000 years. From 3114 until 1756: a period of 4870 years; from 1756 until 1999: a period of 243 years; from 1999 until the middle of 2012: a period of 13 years.

Einstein, preconception of relativity and time-space continuum

Albert Einstein's fourth dimensional concept of space-time

It is no wonder that the last decade has been fraught with predictions of the ‘end of time’. Time is indeed ‘ending’ in the context that we knew it. It is speeding up, we are evolving at a greater rate than ever before; the fourth dimensional gateway that Einstein talked of when others thought he was the only human able to understand ‘relativity’ is now something that many of us see with our own eyes, read in our own literature, calculate in our mathematics and quantum theory, and, at some level at least, understand.

We are progressing at such a rate that, as I have blogged before, the expression ‘the human mind is evolving’ is obsolete before we reach the end of the sentence.

Pleiadean constellation: seven sisters

Messages from the stars: the Pleiades

It is not difficult to see that the proliferation of blogs on the New Age, New Science, New Earth, New Species (star-children, light beings, Pleiadians, Sirian energetics, Bird Tribes, crop-circle-consciousness) have had a massive following. We all want to know where we’re headed, as a species, as a planetary capsule or Mothership travelling through space; or as sentient beings with group consciousness. And, while some bloggers are unreserved in expounding on the topic of our being led by light entities from outside the solar system, it is probably more likely that we, when at peace and centred in our higher or Godselves, have the ability with which we were originally conceived to create our own loving, caring, sharing world.

It is sometimes hard for us to believe this great truth, when outside influences and external circumstances pound us into emotional blobs, or we become so tired from physical and mental exertion that we are unable to feel our core, sense our own evolution, know our own sacred power.

The messages being transmitted – whether you are drawn to Archangel Metatron, Mother Mary, Jeshua or, outside the Judaeo-Christian terminology, Sirians, Pleidean energies and ET – are remarkably similar: by focusing on our Godselves, our ‘still small voice within’, our loving living spirit-core, by allowing nothing that is not of light to penetrate and move us, we may begin to master our own nature and move as a whole in the direction perceived by a sentient Universe at the time of its conception. The Big Bang, ‘…and the Word flowed upon the Waters’, ‘Let There be Light’.

There has been talk of Stargates, Energy gateways, vibrational doorways and increased vibrational DNA codes. It makes sense that our star, the long-suffering Sol, should encourage us to increase our quantum light particles, to upgrade from sod-bound Neanderthals to starseed beings, capable of instant understanding, telepathic and empathic communication, with the ability to raise ourselves and our sisters to the heavens. Denser energies bog us down, mire us in thought patterns unworthy of our spiritual circuitry, send out thoughts which turn around and slam right back at us.

We are a little of what we eat, but more so, we are what we project in thought, feeling and belief.

And New Consciousness bloggers are helping us with daily updates from the spiritual hierarchy to become those godlike entities we are capable of believing ourselves to be.

When the Calendar of the Maya completes its last cycle of 13 years on winter solstice 2012, will we be ready for takeoff? Will we, as a planet, as one consciousness, be able to spread our wings? To create Heaven on Earth? Will we be ready to fly?
