I’ve always had a secret longing to use German as my first language. In this life it was not to be. But I’ve made a pretty good stab at it for a foreigner. The fact that the Saxons conquered England at some point and inserted all those combination words into the language helps considerably. But English – and consequently Americana – still have no basic concept of how to combine words. Councilspeak doesn’t have quite the same ring to it.
That’s not what this blog’s about, though. But, you have to agree: it does make a great title!
We study, or – if we’re lucky – visit crop circles in the summertime. It’s when they appear in the fields all over the world, but mostly in the Plains and Downs of southwestern England sheltered by the Cotswolds, and hemmed in by magnetic energy barriers: they are a summer phenomenon brought on by the rising electromagnetic energy field previously the sole dominion of stone circles. Winter is a time when crop circle enthusiasts study their library of last season’s images and wish it were summer – if only to see the next miracle of manifestation.
It’s not a coincidence that crop circles and stone circles appear together in the same landscape. They are drawn by the same force. It is that electromagnetic energy, that same waveband of earth magnetism which first ‘stonies’ and now ‘croppies’ have sensed long before Alfred Watkins published his ‘Old Straight Track‘ in 1925. With the current mood and a worldwide following, it seems fitting that stone circles should bow out gracefully for a time and give the stage to their ephemeral 21st Century lookalikes. After all, they’ve had it all to themselves for over 5000 years.Highly-charged electromagnetic landscapes, like Wiltshire, parts of Hampshire and Oxfordshire (and others in Italy, Ohio, Holland, France and Scotland) seem to have the uncanny ability to attract creations of revolutionary design. It happened at Avebury in 4000BC, at Stonehenge and Rollright a little more recently (2500BC). The new age of design is following in giant footsteps; it succeeds in bringing in the same dowsers and energy workers, the same scientific minds to witness and measure and take notes; the only difference is these more recent patterns give little time for study: the imprints are fleeting. It all has to be done in a season.
Or does it? That’s the beauty of capturing an image. And, of course, the electronic world we are now immersed in is miraculous for doing just that. We can access images at any time of year on a computer. Just like the human mind: we can summon anything we choose at ANY time.
There is a connection.
According to the author of one of Britain’s most respected crop circle sites:
Crop circles show existence of ultrasound, and such frequencies are known to exist at ancient sites such as stone circles and menhirs. Like all ancient sacred sites, crop circles appear at the intersecting points of the Earth’s magnetic pathways of energy; thus the size and shape of a crop circle is typically determined by the area of these ‘node’ points at the time of their appearance. This electric and magnetic energy can interact with brainwave patterns, and because the human body is itself electro-magnetic, crop circles are known to affect people’s biophysical rhythms. Consequently, it is not unusual for people to experience heightened states of awareness and healings in crop circles – a situation also common to sacred sites and holy spaces.
The University of California at Santa Cruz has a graduate course entitled the History of Consciousness. it’s always fully enrolled. The professors who lead the program would be the first to agree the Human Mind is evolving at such a rate we are leaving ourselves behind! At such a speed that it is immeasurable even by modern instruments. We’ve progressed beyond the capabilities of our own machines: the miracle instruments we geniuses devised to copy our own mental functions are obsolete as soon as they reach the market shelves. We are similar. The human mind that devised them is racing ahead. By the time I reach the end of this paragraph, the beginning of it is already in the past; has already served its purpose, is as obsolete as yesterday.
The mind moves on. Human spirit moves on. We are entering completely new territory as a species. And methinks the crop circle phenomenon reflects our progression.
The internet is full of incidents of Kornkreis enthusiasts in discussion in the pub after an amazing day in the corn, wondering why such-and-such a design has not yet appeared. And lo and behold, the next day that consciousness (or its higher-self equivalent) produces the design.
One of my Celestine buddies – when that internet discussion group was in full flow – remembered meditating on a summer California beach with a few friends who in their group mind ‘intended’ snow to fall – and produced a few flakes. Neale Donald Walsch quotes thousands of examples of the human capacity to create its own reality.
Twenty – even ten – years ago, crop circles were something mainstream society considered derisory, dismissed readily, assumed were fake, a plot, a simple exercise in geometry, created by amateurs with string, a fulcrum post and a tennis court roller. Not any more. If Google were to do a census – a polldaddy of internet users – I bet crop circle searches would come out in the top ten. Judging by the repeat hits I get on this site alone, [I am hugely grateful; thank you for reading], the subject is at the forefront of human consciousness.
And as consciousness creates reality, as the surge in crop circle interest quickens, so do the designs become more graphic, more complex, more filled with elusive code. The code alone intrigues. Human minds set to all winter to try to solve, to decipher and announce its meaning proudly before the onset of next season’s cryptic messages.
So what is going on? if we are doing this to ourselves – to remind ourselves of our gifts, our stellar heritage, our future, our destiny, why is it taking us so long to realize that we – the human Group Mind – are light beings ourselves? Are we so unaware as earthbound bodies that we have to gift ourselves this infinite pleasure first, of seeing beauty in a field of grain? Knowing somewhere subliminally in a deep recess that the light orbs that create them are somehow a part of us – photons within the light…
Maybe it’s because the human mind has always been a tease. It likes to pose conundrums, so it can solve them. To throw out rhetorical questions, so the unaware will take a leap in faith upwards and join the throng.
We have had many reminders of this period of the ‘End Times’ through the Ages. Civilization has not been remiss in giving us pointers along the way. Our journey has been decked with beauty from Egyptian hieroglyphs through early hieratic/cursive, Turkish script through Greek and Roman letters and numerals, Arabic constellation names through Jewish biblical symbols: Ethiopian astrology through Oriental tigers, monkeys and rats.
Numerology consistently points to symbolism, sacred geometry to mystic significance: from the Great Cycle of the Maya to the charmed ‘golden’ sequence of numbers taken from the Arabic-Hindu numeral system and presented to the world in his Book of the Abacus (Liber Abaci) in 1202 by Leonardo Fibonacci.
We are blessed with a multitude of pointers. We should all have been listening, reading, paying much more attention long before now… before the cataclysm and world upheaval – the last resort of the Cosmos, last device dreamed up by our enquiring consciousness to make us stop our journey to nowhere, take a deep breath, a long hard look and return to balance within.
I wrote earlier in the month about freak weather and its consequences. I touched on earth changes, but only touched, because the subject is fraught with pain for those who suffer through it, doom-and-gloom scenarios beloved of news media which encourages mass hysteria, and negative fear-based what-ifs.We need only stand back for a moment and admire what we as a race have achieved in one brief century – that’s the timespan since Man’s first heavier-than-air flight – or judge ourselves for what we’ve been doing to our home planet in the same period – to see that we are in need of a jolt to remember WHO WE ARE.
We are infinitely powerful beings of spiritual design given a human body which miraculously works beyond the dreams of Medicine, with a mind capable of tapping into the Great Mind – when and if we wish. Everything is laid before us; a beautiful home which presents us with four seasons of changing moods to give us infinite variety as well as bounty in food, inspiration and opportunity.
And, while we may no longer have access to the Great Library of Alexandria, we have the internet.
Through tools of electronic fashioning which we ourselves brought about, we can access anything and everything, be apprised of breakthroughs in science, touch base with friends a hemisphere away, create miracles on our own doorstep.
So, if the Great Mind helped us embellish our world with tools of every description at our disposal, is it not logical that the Overmind would also give us helpful reminders of our own destiny?: that we as a species, born of the stars, are capable of returning to the stars?I liken us to my chickens. Domestic fowl this winter have had it foul. They’ve been joined by pheasants, an occasional partridge and hoards of wild birds: thrushes, robins, tits, wrens and finches. At an unfamiliar sound or a sudden move, the startled pheasant will take off, winging its curiously heavy body through the air, until it lands exhausted a short distance away. The hen watches it rise in flight and wishes she could. She has the same heavy body, but her jungle foul genes have been bred out and egg-laying bred in. She can fly, but she’s not good at it.
We, the human race are also capable of flight. Yes, we have some excellent captains who pilot 777s and dream of flying 797s. But our brain circuitry is capable of flight beyond those dreams. We already have telepathy, meditation techniques which connect us to our Overself, our Higher Being.
There are channelers and psychics who can work from a distance to send and receive healing and messages to and from other spaces. It is only a brief leap in consciousness to use that means of communication, of ‘other’ connectedness to move ourselves through the vast reaches of space. We are in the beginning stages but we need to WANT to learn how. Our spirit is teaching us. We have only to open our hearts to learn.
Judaeo-Christian quotations can be so apt.
It may be significant that a predominant theme in the 2009 crop circle season was that of winged creatures: the phoenix, the dragonfly, the hummingbird and a plethora of designs depicting wings. And every one of them appeared within a month of the solstice: at the time of earth’s highest magnetic resonance with her solar partner. When the Stonehenge Heel stone becomes the epitome of sundial pointers; when the sun on Avebury’s ‘Sanctuary’ casts the least shadow. Gerald Hawkins, who died in May 2003, spent a lifetime of study, firstly at the Harvard-Smithsonian Observatories in Cambridge, Mass where he devised his ‘computer’ theory for Stonehenge, Karnak and Kilmartin, Argyll; and later as Professor of physics and astronomy at Boston University, where he fed his theories into one of the world’s first computers, an IBM 704. He was primarily a physicist and astronomer, however, and in later life was drawn to the Euclidean precision and beauty of crop circles, linking their symmetry and design to intervals on the music scale. He was about to publish his 121st paper – this time on sacred geometry in crop circles – when he died. His 61st scientific paper, the one published in Nature in 1963 which led to his Stonehenge Decoded (Doubleday 1965) and Beyond Stonehenge (Harper & Row 1973) books, changed forever the way we look at Stonehenge and inspired the science of archaeoastronomy. His theory was that the massive trilithons and bluestones of the great iconic Salisbury Plain stone circle formed a neolithic computer-observatory for predicting eclipses of the sun and moon. His later work in crop circles gave him great satisfaction, not only for their symmetry and exquisite use of sacred geometry, but for their astronomical design, their solar and lunar predictions/inferences and for their worm’s eye view of the heavens. He would be the first to applaud those Kornkreis believers who are convinced the formations are leading us into new avenues of being, new ways of seeing.
For those who believe (in Spirit) will find their strength renewed. They shall soar on wings like Eagles
Good News Bible Isaiah 40, 31
It’s up to us now. Before the new season starts, are we going to own up to it? Are we not part of the great Whole, this Group Consciousness which is leading us back to Source, to the Universal Mind which oversees and shelters and protects us from making too many awful errors…? Will we stretch out a timid hand and allow Spirit – and Kornkreis Consciousness – to help us up on to the next dimensional rung of the Cosmic ladder?
Will we be able to fly?
