Winter Kornkreis Consciousness

February 28, 2010

KORNKREISE: such an evocative word. The Germanic-rooted among us immediately know and the vision appears in the mind. It shouldn’t be difficult, especially for those of us of Anglo-Saxon lineage, to work it out. Crop Circle is a poor translation.

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.

Avebury Great Stone Circle, Wiltshire 4500BC

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 stretch our wings a little to learn how to fly

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?

500ft Swallow with coded tail, Alton Priors June 27, 2009

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.

For those who believe (in Spirit) will find their strength renewed. They shall soar on wings like Eagles
Good News Bible Isaiah 40, 31

Wings crop circle June 13, 2009 Tawsmead Copse, Wiltshire

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.

Hummingbird crop circle Stanton St.Bernard, July 2, 2009

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.

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?

Crop Circles: Hitchhiker’s Guide in Sound and Light

Crop circle codes of light

Last weekend, as I joined in giving thanks for our earthly blessings, an autumnal appreciation of Crop Circles, themselves the epitome of high summer warmth and abundance, seemed right. If, like me, you are adjusting to the onset of winter, shortening days, dwindling light, you might be tempted to regret that, at the height of summer, we didn’t feel more appreciation for the phenomenon. Once more I allowed the beauty of their designs to imprint on my subconscious and, as many others have done, asked myself why here, why now? So this is my second blog at a time of entering into hibernation, because we occasionally need a double dose of joy to get us through hard times.

As a catalyst for change, their imprint on harvest field and human consciousness is gaining ground and their messages of joy, beauty, grace (as well as mathematics, geometry, astronomy, enough science to boggle the most ardent geek) have been hitting us squarely between the eyes: 10,000 messages in 29 countries in the last decade. Along with spiritual feelings generated in visitors within the circles themselves, those messages are having an impact on us, the human race: feelings appropriate to this particular season: like peace and goodwill to our fellow man. How clever of them to be able to combine both physical and spiritual. And to do it in such a miraculously short time.

Helicopter and microlite pilots have attested to crop circles appearing in the Wiltshire countryside in a 15-minute timespan between one flyover and the next. Overnight campers trying their best to stay awake to ‘catch them at it’ have either dozed off at the crucial moment or seen the tail end of a luminous glow disappear over the horizon, leaving a trail of beauty blazed in the corn.

Crop scientists agree, stalks of barley and wheat show effects of intense heat similar to microwave or laser energy which can make a stem node pop or a stalk bend and lie flat without breaking, all the while being manipulated into a stunning swirling pattern akin to weaving or cosmic basketry. Monitored examples so far have registered minute alterations in cellular structure, fluctuating background radiation and depletion of the local water table, but crops continue to grow to maturity and harvest with no negative impact. In fact recent research is beginning to believe a quick dose of light radiation and an altered energy field actually improve crop yield.

Known side-effects, seen by the scientific establishment as an increase in electromagnetic energy and altered soil chemisry, produce on-the-ground human biological emotions such as brotherly love, increased camaraderie, and an inclination to share with others; add to that the agricultural bonus of stronger wheat, more robust barley, increased yield, and the fact that these crops are increasingly being consumed by us in our bread, malt, beer and pastries, would it not follow that we too are being affected? To take the concept even farther; might we find through the gifts left in these complex manifested forms a way to feed the world’s starving masses?

In recent years the beauty of crop circle art, alone, has succeeded in affecting us as a collective. That in itself is remarkable. Through the immediacy of the internet and with huge advances in video technology, visitor numbers have escalated beyond local belief, air traffic and ‘sky tours’ have doubled and website ‘hits’ on the phenomenon number over one million.

There are few left unaware or untouched by them. People in all countries – even the most inured city-dweller – and followers on all continents, whether or not they have experienced them first hand, are writing and blogging about them. I for one have visited only one, but that’s the beauty of their effect: the photographic record has nearly as much impact on us as the creations themselves.

While some communications media continue to postulate their formation by humans, most of us who’ve been following their process of revelation are aware now that something else is going on.
They are making us look to the stars. Our place of origin, according to all major world religions, astrophysicists, philosophers, a multitude of alternate faiths, and a huge body of ancient knowledge.

‘He made his Progeny of an extract of Water held in Light estimation’
Q’uran The Koran

Why, if not to guide our fumbling consciousness in a new direction, would we be given a steadily increasing stream of tantalizing coded information, created in seconds, coming from what appears to be the Realm of Light?

Sextant Crop Circle at Alton Barnes Phase I June 21, 2009

It’s not just a physical reaction; it’s emotional, psychic, spiritual and other-dimensional as well. We are being drawn out of our three-to-four dimensional planes and becoming familiar with concepts, taught by all the great spiritual doctrines, that there are several other realities than the one we see.
Suddenly our Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy becomes an open door to the Universe and is teaching us to think out of the box, to look beyond.

Take the Sextant Crop Circle for instance: After its preliminary formation on midsummer night 2009 in a field at Alton Barnes, Wiltshire, it took two successive nights to complete. And it brought reaction from three different schools of thought:

Coronal mass ejection predicted in 'jellyfish' crop circle

The Astronomical community suggested its initial phase mirrored the inner solar system, predicting (like the ‘jellyfish’ crop circle) a solar coronal mass ejection (CME) for a date three weeks in the future. Phase two appeared to give universal values and positions for the inner planets confirming that date and time; and phase three, although a trickier concept, as it appeared to be in ‘code’, a mixture of ASCII and hieroglyphs which were yet to be revealed!

The Mathematics community, including our dear-departed gurus Sagan and Hawkins (my last blog) are insistent that much crop circle symmetry and form resembles the perfection of number and the exquisite harmony of music:

‘As the expression of number in space, geometry is inextricably linked to music since the laws of the former govern the mathematical intervals that make up the notes in the western music scale – the diatonic ratios – hence the reason ancient Egyptians referred to geometry as frozen music.’

There is a physical connection, too, between matter and sound, as sound waves will create geometric patterns in sand, iron filings, any flexible medium. Navajo and Hopi traditions relate how shamans in ancient times would utter words on to sand to create sacred patterns. Music soothes the fevered mind; it coaxes plants into growth (Secret Life of Plants, Peter Tompkins and Christopher Bird).

Sextant crop circle phase 2 appeared June 23 2009

Echoed in all the world’s faiths and traditions is the concept that Universal matter was created by sound: Hindu Mandalas are created in the vibration of God; Islam expresses God as a sacred geometric image; in the Christian tradition, medieval geometry produced miraculous structures like the Gothic cathedral whose hallowed arches resonated with song and chant. And

‘In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God St. John

Phase 3 Sextant crop circle Alton Barnes June 30, 2009 with coded tail

The third response is from an individual, but is, I believe, the most revealing of the three: Judy Beebe has been a medical scientist for 35 years, and on her spiritual path since she was nine years old. Through a series of life-changing experiences, some of them OBEs, she has created what she calls a Language of Light, which she itemizes and demonstrates lucidly to be a Univesal code which is embedded in the crop circles.

She fervently believes Mankind has reached a point where we are now listening:
– to our own ‘Spirit within’,
– to messages sent from our Universal Matrix to remind us of our sacred potential, and
– to our own forgotten memories of who we were before we incarnated on this planet. She is convinced that water carries the matrix of our future.

Her information is carefully and lovingly documented and her website is a work of art in itself. She also – like the crop scientists measuring growth rates and changing cell structure – thinks we are being directed towards new simpler technologies which we have only to use our God-given intelligence to figure out and implement. In her view, the 2008 Crop Circle season was about ‘energy’; the 2009 season about ‘water’. Man’s way forward is to develop our next source of energy from the water molecule: what she calls Omega Cell or GEM energy.

Judy Beebe's concept of phase 3 Alton Barnes 'sextant' crop circle with tail

For her, the ‘Sextant’ crop circle phase one clearly gives the GEM energy formula, along with instruction in how to activate the energy matrix which we need as a species to develop our ‘understanding heart’ and to ascend in consciousness. Phase two shows the matrix opened up and the activation of ‘watery fire’ or power from the constituent elements of water – oxygen and hydrogen. Phase three shows energy at our fingertips to power the world; she says energy from water is our destiny. To her, the phase three tail of code, like the swallow crop circle with coded tail which appeared the same week at Stanton St. Bernard (June 27, 2009) is a flow of rippling water energy.

Her work has matured over several years and her evidence is clear and beguiling. It is a masterpiece, with directions to reach the Master Key, and well worth taking time to study.

Gradually, as we work our chilly way moment by moment towards winter solstice, the time of earthly endings and solar standstill, we are being shown miracles in nature along with human ideas which have sparked from them. In contemplating designs devised by laser consciousness, we are also being given a razor-sharp view of an alternate reality. I believe we are being drawn closer to our destiny, and. like the return of the light after solstice, our new beginnings are around the corner.
