Reaching for Sunbeams: Unity Consciousness in the Ninth Wave

April 13, 2011

José Argüelles–proponent of the living spirit of the Maya as seen through their Calendar of Consciousness — died on March 23, 2011 (2 Imix). Among his contemporaries and in his community, his ‘transitioning’ to a higher dimension–just as the culmination of the Calendar of the Maya is glimpsed on the horizon–was considered a surprise, a tragedy. He was one of the few indigenous Americans who could make sense of the multiple calendar calculations of his ancestral Maya, putting their Tzolkin (260-days), their Long Count and their fiscal Haab into words that many could understand. He was honored in March 2002 as Valum Votan, ‘Closer of the Cycle’ by Mayan Nine Indigenous Elders atop the Pyramid of the Sun at Teotihuacan. There they awarded him the elders’ ceremonial staff for his efforts in helping to awake humanity to the meaning of 2012. He was co-founder of Earth Day (former Arbor Day) and instigated the first Whole Earth Festival in California in 1970.

‘Everything is perfect. Love Everyone. Hate No-one’ José Argüelles’ words as he left this dimension. His final book Manifesto for the Noosphere is being released by Evolver/North Atlantic Books

Argüelles’ first book, The Mayan Factor: Path beyond Technology (1987) was a breath of fresh air to believers in many countries who in the year of its publication congregated at his instigation to celebrate the Harmonic Convergence of August 16-17. It was the first gathering in modern times on Earth for a large convocation of all nations joining together to pray, meditate, give thanks and commune with the ancestral spirits.

Harmonic Convergence happened at a point in sidereal time when a majority of planets of the solar system converged in the sky and in calculable time 25 years before the Mayan Great Cycle Calendar end-date of winter solstice 2012. Sixteen years after that convergence, another galactic (planetary alignment) event occurred in 2003, known as the Harmonic Concordance, when an estimated one million people gathered worldwide to celebrate another level to which a growing consciousness movement on the planet had aspired–and reached–Unity Consciousness. In November 2010 a third convocation occurred between East and West where an estimated 10 million took part.

According to several western Mayan scholars, the 1987 date marked global synchronization for those kin souls on the planet prepared to shift into global awareness suited to the final years of their revered ancestors’ calendrical calculation: a human society whose consciousness was making ready to leap into a higher dimension, where we will manifest ‘one thousand years of peace and harmony’ on our planet.

‘Indigenous people work with calendars to predict times of revelation, so they can watch for the symbols that can reawaken their cellular memory and remake the human bridge to the subtle worlds….’ Barbara H Clow

Along with her mentor and colleague, Dr Carl J Calleman, Barbara Clow is a Mayan scholar and also an accomplished astrologer. According to their calculations, the Earth, along with all who are ready for Mankind’s quantum leap in consciousness, moved into the last Mayan phase–the Ninth Wave or Universal Underworld–on March 9th this year, one month ago. The event was signaled by a massive series of earthquakes on the Pacific rim. This shocking occurrence has had the desired effect of bringing much of the world together in compassion, although it still seems almost inconceivable that we as a whole-earth society have only one year from now (the Ninth Wave) in which to ‘get our house in order’ for the leap up the dimensional ladder into our evolved higher (light-being) selves.

But Unity Consciousness has a finely-tuned harmonic scale which our DNA and our evolving, light-enhanced cells may find hard to resist.

And we have help.

2010 higher dimensional objects in 2D in Wiltshire fields

Judging by increasing complexity we have witnessed in crop circle designs of recent years, the 2011 season (England–imminent) *(see first report in Wales here)* will more than outdo its predecessors. From around 1998 on, 2D graphics seen in Wiltshire and Oxfordshire fields (as viewed from above) have progressively demonstrated the quantum reality of showing higher dimensional figures (3D, 4D, 5D) as if in shadow, or in their two-dimensional, (simpler), form.

Astrophysicist Carl Sagan once explained that the only way we–in 3D– can visualize a 4D object is to imagine an extra dimension at right angles to the ones we know as familiar. Or see its shadow counterpart.

Crop designs in 2010 were particularly adept at showing higher dimensional objects in their lower dimensional (geometric) shadow guise.

It is as if we are being given consciousness clues to help us maintain our level of intent to accomplish the next leap in faith.

Crop circle art is no longer seen as marginal, an outdated hoax, a manmade joke. The concept of humankind’s own higher self–its own unified field of psychic understanding projecting a message back down to the 2D receptors of its own learning (lower self) population–begins to make a degree of sense.

Like imagining a dimension at right angles to the ones we already know, we just have to get our heads around the concept.

Crop Circles–the Cosmic Post-it Note

Aldbourne 'vortex' crop circle, July 2006

Crop circles are like post-it notes left by our already-elevated consciousness in a time-warp created by our future self and stuck on a prominent noticeboard before it left the building: for us to come along and read in this dimension, so we know we’re still headed in the right direction. Or, if you prefer it, picture a shadow of what is to come. However you do it, it will take both hemispheres of the brain to work in unison to get the projection right! And there are many poised worldwide to integrate the lessons of the 2011 season into their awareness.

The Astrological Aspect
Many of us have a fascination for planetary clustering in current astrological charts. In progressed charts, astrologers can detect heavenly indicators which are actively guiding the human race in present time –making it a make-or-break choice for many. Last spring and summer were dominated by a Grand Cross configuration: conflicts all around. This spring marks global change.

New Moon/Sun & Mercury, Jupiter, Mars/Uranus in Aries opposite Saturn in Libra: April 4th 2011

Following this month’s potent new moon-Sun-Jupiter conjunction on April 4th-5th and a Mars-Uranus conjuction (rash, impulsive unexpected change) in the same sign (Aries), Ms Clow says ‘people will feel like racehorses at the gate, ready to charge when the gun cracks… If you race for your true heart’s desire, chances are the people around you will be focusing on theirs as well; there’s no need to smash into each other. Our reality is now a fully-activated holographic fractal field, so when you choose your highest good and place it in your heart, what you’re doing doesn’t (negatively) affect others. But it would be very smart to stay out of any conflicts that are going on around you–especially the ones you don’t really care about.’

One further prediction in archival material maintained by the Maya is that nine deities or forces will appear at the End of Time. The Codices left by the Maya envisage the return of Kukulcan–Aztec Quetzalcoatl. He is mesoamerican serpent god-of-the-sun and consort of Venus.

In the West, the appearance of nine energies in the End Times has been interpreted widely as equivalent to the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse in Western biblical tradition: war, pestilence, famine and death. Dr Calleman, however, thinks otherwise.

“I believe that behind these cosmic forces, whose times of activation are described by the Mayan calendar, is an intelligent plan for the history of humanity that comes from a higher source and has a benevolent intention.”

He sees them as synchronicities or numeric coincidences: 9:9:9; 10:10:10; 11:11:11 and, of course, 12:12:12 are only four such numerological events.

Others have seen the ‘appearances’ of light orbs associated with the creation of crop circles, the Norway spiral and the revelations now being released by US government sources on UFOs as such ‘appearances’.

These nine cosmic forces are influencing and governing our collective consciousness and so we have every reason to pay attention to what is going on in this cosmic time plan–
Carl Calleman

He is convinced the numerology of nines is particularly relevant to this, the Ninth–and final–Wave, leading us to planetary and societal ‘completion’. He encourages ‘community building, networking and spiritual synchronization’. He envisages a rapid expansion of consciousness in our Final Days, where much is accomplished in a very short time–the Tzolkin 260 day time-count. He says the Ninth Wave is designed (by intelligent Source) in the Cosmos to accomplish a new earth-wide and earth-nurturing consciousness: unity consciousness with all life. That we need to prepare for this–individually and together.

And that in approaching the birth of a new world with conscious intention, we will join with others of like mind and intent. Naturally, says Calleman, it is a matter of choice.

Let us hope that not only is he a true visionary, but that he is right.

For those who choose to join in collective intention for the co-creation of a new world, all miracles are possible.

Galactic Stillpoint: Longest Night on Earth

December 21, 2009

‘Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known’
Carl Sagan In Memoriam

Stone circle and midwinter sunset light

It is Solstice. Tonight is the longest night of the year for planet Earth’s northern hemisphere dwellers. It is at midwinter when all animals (except the human creature) go within, curl up and meditate in their own fashion; and wait for the light to return.

Neolithic farming communities in Scotland between the 56th and 57th parallel dragged massive 50-ton blocks of stone over the snow to form windows on the sky.

Recumbent stone circle at winter solstice

They took time out from their hard agricultural working life to create ‘recumbent’ stone circles which would mark forever that point on the horizon where the sun set at winter solstice. Five thousand years ago solstice was celebrated with fire. They’d learned that fire embodied in the Sun seemed to disappear forever; then was miraculously rekindled, reawakened and with it their land, their precious earth on which all depended, would respond; it began anew to nurture seed into growth, to produce fruit and harvest all over again.

Fire festivals reenacted fire of the dying sun in stone circles

Flames from solstitial fires reached for the heavens all through that cold winter night.

It must have seemed like a miracle at solar standstill when, after disappearing for seventeen hours, the sunlight returned and days began to lengthen once more. Seventeen hours of darkness is a long time if you live in a cave, an earth dugout or a stone mound.

The human subconscious appears to retain partial memory of this primordial condition which animals have, because in northern latitudes midwinter is often celebrated to an irrational degree. It is as if at a cellular level we remember that after galactic stillpoint is reached, the Earth starts to awaken once more and we realize that the Universe is going to keep on turning. What a blessing. What a miracle. What better reason to rejoice?

It is said our biological form is quintessentially-adapted for language: that the Word has created in our brain’s motor centers a highly developed auditory discrimination, with rapid muscular response in tongue, lips and palate; but we were not its makers. It was a gift from Creation which we have evolved to a remarkable sophistry. Fire, on the other hand was Man’s ultimate discovery.

At the forty-fifth parallel of latitude, in the cave vaults of Choukoutien near Beijing, a heavy-browed paleoanthropic form of Man with a cranial capacity as low as 860cc gnawed marrow bones and chipped stone implements. His time lies 500,000 years remote from this and yet in those years of the second Ice Age, this Man, with scarcely two-thirds of our modern cranial capacity, used fire.

Is it any wonder, then, that world mythology is filled with tales of sorcerer-priests who conjure light, the hero-giant stealer of fire from the gods? In discovering fire, were we not amazed at our ability to do as the gods themselves, to create Light?

In that dark cave half a million years ago ‘Peking Man’ created a spark which dispelled the darkness. His was the crucible which contained our entire human future. Have we not ever since – at a cellular level – been searching to return to that same realm of Light?

Round Zodiac of Dendera, from 50BC during Roman rule of Upper Egypt

In our reaching for the stars we have for generations been guided by mythology, world religions, the ancient astrological zodiac calendar and by our own deep need for an otherworldly force which is both strong and loving. In myth, the goddess Ishtar/Isis is the celestial mother/lover (Roman Venus); in a crossover with astronomy she is seen as the stella maris, the heavenly guide to mariners, the star of the (celestial) sea, Sirius, Canis Major, the brightest of the fixed stars, whose heliacal rising marked the beginning of the Ancient Egyptian calendar on July 19-20: end of zodiacal Cancer, beginning of astrological Leo.

In Babylonian legend, the redeemer of the world, Celestial Man, is expected to rise from the heart of the (cosmic) Ocean.

Ancient Man looked to the heavens for inspiration. Medieval Man was convinced heaven was right out there among the stars. It is only we, modern homo (so-called) sapiens who forgets to do that kind of communing with the Universe.

On the other hand select niches in our society still seek: within the scientific establishment the search for extra-terrestrial life (SETI) continues apace. Carl Sagan, exobiologist, astronomer and visionary, along with his colleagues at Cornell, created a fashion in the early ’70s for that kind of exploration.

He said:

‘We are starfolk, but we live in the galactic boondocks where the action isn’t’

and took steps, aided by NASA, to communicate with any advanced civilizations out there which might deign to reply. In sending the Pioneer 10’s message plaque of gold-plated aluminum to a star region in the vicinity of Taurus/Orion, they hoped to trigger a response from any listening/receiving civilization.

Pioneer 10 gold-plated plaque continues to travel for 80,000 years

His argument was that any evolved star-beings who were less advanced than us (and in his day, we earthlings were only ten years into being categorized as ‘advanced’ ourselves), would be incapable of responding. Only civilizations more advanced than us would understand the message and have the capability to reply. He also rationalized the graphics of the message sent: reasoning that other galactic residents might not understand English, German, Swahili, Urdu; but they would understand mathematics, astronomy, physics.

Shortly after launching interstellar spacecraft Pioneer in March 1972, SETI directed efforts to beaming radio telescope transmissions to the stars. The latest of these was sent from Arecibo, Puerto Rico towards the Vega-Altair-Deneb triangle in 1999. By that time radio frequency was a speedier means of transmission than the fuel-propelled Pioneer space vehicle where a destination of even the nearest star (four light years distant) would not be reached for 80,000 years.

Besides they reasoned that if any civilizations were listening in/eavesdropping on us the Arecibo message was joining a century of transmissions from our planet, starting with Marconi’s first wireless communication in 1897.

It is thirteen years since Carl Sagan’s premature death on winter solstice 1996. He would be intrigued to learn of the massing body of evidence in favour of extra-terrestrial communication. The crop circle archive alone is superb. Not only does it communicate in the languages of science he advocated (mathematics, physics, astronomy), but, based on his premise that a more advanced civilization would find a more sophisticated means of communicating with us than we had with them, their graphics succeed in touching us at a cellular and emotional level, as well as pointing us to the stars.

Ancient World religions like the Judaic, Arabic, Egyptian, Babylonian, Greek and Vedic faiths have frequent admonitions to look to the stars, to ‘observe in the east’, to watch the heavens for signs.

Our society is on the cusp of the year 2010. We have a Space Station partially operational; Hubble and SOHO (Solar and Heliospheric Observatory) are in orbit; CERN has just collided atoms at an unprecedented rate in the tunnels below Geneva in Switzerland. We are technically advanced.

What about our spirit?

Neale Donald Walsch says:

Individuals — if their thought (prayer, hope, wish, dream, fear) is amazingly strong — can, in and of themselves, produce such results. Jesus did this regularly. He understood how to manipulate energy and matter, how to rearrange it, how to redistribute it, how to utterly control it. Many Masters have known this. Many know it now.
Neale Donald Walsch Conversations with God

If our heads were not so clouded by traffic jams and mind jams and living in a race for security and success, we might pause for this moment of solstice – the last in a single digit year for a century – and look to the heavens with awe. Two of our neighbours in the solar system, the crescent moon and Jupiter, shine brilliantly together shortly after sunset in the night sky. We have just experienced a multi-colour array of Geminid meteors emanating from the constellation which follows Orion through the night, with our brightest star, Sirius, stella maris, hovering below. It is the season for aurora borealis, which has already peaked over the Canadian Arctic. These are ‘commonplace’ wonders. However, we have also been treated to some unusual cosmic ‘signs’.

Spiral of light over Tromsö, Norway on eve of Obama's Nobel Peace Prize acceptance

On the day that President Barack Obama was travelling to Oslo, Norway to accept his Nobel Peace Prize, a spiral of light appeared in the skies over Tromsö and reflected light down to earth for twelve minutes ending in a circular hole of light. The spiral is an archetypal symbol representing cosmic force. It was used by all formative cultures in their art: civilizations from the Neolithic North Britons to Celtic Gaul, Egyptians, Japanese, Hopi, Nazca, Arabic, African and Hindu all use this representation of Cosmic Energy. Its appearance added to world spiritual expectation of a sign in the heavens to herald the birth of a New Age.

Great Eye of Sauron in Fomalhaut

Surrounded by these new signs, we may not have noticed that there have been a number of transmissions from Sirius; not beamed, like the crop circles, via light or laser technology, but in a method which travels equally as fast. Using a transference common in the realm of mind messages or ‘channeling’, an entity calling itself SaLuSa speaks from the Galactic Federation through Mike Quinsey, using the most comforting and inspiring words of encouragement to those of us experiencing difficulty adjusting to effects of the long predicted ‘end-times’.

‘We ask you once again to keep your eyes on the skies. These are the days when the signs have become talking points, that will awaken people’s awareness, not just to our presence but our methods of contact with you. For many years we have made crop circles as one means of getting your attention. As you will have noticed in more recent times, they have become more sophisticated. The messages they send have been interpreted, and their symbolism correctly understood. They have carried energy with them, and even although everyone has not understood them, it has connected with them sub-consciously.’

If Carl Sagan were still with us, I think he might consider this form of transmission equally valid from an advanced stellar civilization. After all his criteria suggested that those who had survived a post-nuclear age without exterminating either themselves or their habitat would be in a better frame of consciousness to extend the vibration of ascension and assistance to help another up the ladder of evolution.

If you’re listening, Carl. We miss you. Happy Solstice.
