Apocalypse (Greek: ἀποκάλυψις apocálypsis, from ἀπό also καλύπτω meaning ‘un-covering’), translated from Greek, disclosure of knowledge, hidden from humanity in an era dominated by falsehood and misconception, i.e. lifting of the veil or revelation

As most of us already know, the Long Count Calendar of the Maya ended on December 21st, 2012. It signals the End of the Cycle of the Fifth Sun which began on 13 August 3114 BC.

The Maya chose to mark this event in their major cycle at a time when coincidentally the spiral arm of the Milky Way Galaxy comes into closest conjunction [including that of the planets, solar system and the Sun at winter solstice] with the Galactic Center/Dark Rift.*

The ancient Maya discovered a mathe-magical key that linked nearly every known astronomical cycle. With the number 260 and its component divisors (13 x 20, 5 x 52, etc.), they could interconnect all apparent time sequences of observable celestial cycles—solar, lunar, eclipse, Venus, Mars, Mercury, the cycle of precession. Their knowledge of the precession of the equinoxes has filtered into New Age consciousness as bringing round that cosmic date when the Sun and Earth entered the ‘Age of Aquarius’.

*The actual astronomical range for this annual ‘rendezvous with its ‘cosmic birth canal’ is more realistically 1960-2240, with closest range between from 1998-2016, but it has become popular to fix it around the close of 2012.

Separate from this now-famous calendar, the Mayan Sun-Venus Calendar happens to end on March 28th 2013. It marks the end of the current fifty-two-year Venus cycle that began on April 10th 1961, and more crucial, it marks the start of the new 5000-year cycle of the Sixth Sun.

Some see the notorious ‘Shift’ as one of consciousness. Others as a ‘night of terror’ [Don Alejandro, below] or not to be feared [Hunbatz Men, pictured left, and below]; a further shifting in the polar and magnetic compass points; or physical earth shifts in the form of tsunamis, earth tremors and volcanic or solar activity.

Still others more spiritually determined, like Ken Carey [Bird Tribes, Starseed: Third Millennium] see humanity reach out to fellow beings, winged, rooted, ocean-going or star-seeking, and bring the shift into the personal domain.

“This field of human consciousness will soon know itself for what it is: even as we realize that each of us is like an individual leaf on a tree, or an individual cell in a body. Even after this happens I expect that in order to minimize any disorientation this event will bring, the Star Maker will only gradually reveal its conscious Presence within us, slowly allowing humankind to awaken to the realization that people are not only One, but that we have a rôle as the Star Maker’s physical organ of consciousness—an organ similar to a brain—but more clearly understood in our new capacity as the guidance system for this particular planetary garden.”
Ken Carey

During Consciousness-raising workshops in the GalacticHuman TMI Timeline and Starline programs, a remote viewing on 2020 and 2012, brought up an event associated more appropriate to 2013 than 2012, on an early January/February event:

Starting 1/3/2013 to 2/13/2013 “No communications, internet and/or electricity cut off-isolated from ? – communications will be ‘different’.”
Maya 13-moon cycle;
1/3/2013 13.0.0.0.13
0:Ahau/12 220

2/13/2013 13.0.0.2.14
1:Imix/1 1 day(1)=Kin(1); power doubled day.

1/3/2013 comes 13 days after 12/21/2012 (13.0.0.0.0) – 13 an important cycle (13 months x 20 glyphs = 260-day calendar)
1/3/2013 Long Count is a ‘mirror’, with emphasis on 13: 13.0.0.0.13
2/13 is 40th day later; 39 day difference (39 = 3×13)
2/12 is 0-Ahau/13-Cosmic; Kin 260 = end of the cycle; 2/13 is Kin 1 = begin
12/12/2012 12.19.19.17.11 (-9 days/kins, 9 Underworlds)
12/21/2012 13.0.0.0.0 (0 day)
1/3/2013 13.0.0.0.13 (+13 days/kins, 13 Heavens)

Serpent of Light Beyond 2012
According to Drunvalo Melchizedek’s ‘School of Remembering’* the Serpent is on the move and its energy will culminate on a date in February or March 2013.

February 16th, 2013 is the 260th day of new Age [Maya], which completes the first Cycle of Creation (13 x 20 days). It is the seventh day of Tone Seven of the time-wave that started on the 24th December 2012.

2/16/2013 Long Count: 13.0.0.2.17
Near-Earth-Asteroid 2012 DA14 (discovered 2/13/2012) is forecast to come very close—within satellite orbit range—to the earth on 2/15/2013.

‘Beginning of a new cycle and a new world —where entire heavens will be opened up to humans — free to explore our natural environment of space, time and dimension beyond the Earth.’
Guatemalan Mayan prophecy cycle to 2/19/2013, transmitted by Drunvalo Melchizedek

2/19/2013 Long Count: 13.0.0.3.0
According to Drunvalo Melchizedek, from previously secret knowledge held by the modern Maya, in 1959, after the Lhasa uprising, when the Chinese caused the Dalai Lama to flee to India from Tibet, the kundalini of the Earth—its crown chakra seated in Mount Kailash in Tibet—shifted with him. This ‘serpent of light’ has continued to move through the earth’s electromagnetic system for sixty years and is gradually coming to a focus—elders on both American continents agree—in the Andean plateaux: final resting place, and subject of much discussion.

When that happened, it triggered a meeting on the North American continent of Elders from all areas of Mexico, Belize and Guatemala, and a grand meeting of all Mayan tribes, because they had foreknowledge that the Serpent of Light was going to move. Elders have met annually since then and other groups have joined in increasing awareness and world consciousness:

The crop circle following, in particular, has been graced with several seasons of serpentine motifs in the ripening grain—2012 producing some of the most miraculous—see previous Siderealview blogs, below.

The Phoenix Star Knowledge Conference held December 10-13, 2012 included Mayan daykeeper, Hunbatz Men’s deeply convincing shared knowledge on fearlessness and the sacred duties required of future humans.

Prophesies relating to the end of the Great Cycle have included information on the New Beginning. Other sources, research from Enoch scrolls through ‘lost’ Babylonian texts through ‘missing’ Biblical epistles, speak of knowledge of this time known to the Ancients [antediluvian implied] as one of joy. But unfortunately the old fear-inducing scenarios have, rightly or wrongly, continued into this new time.

Maya Elder Don Alejandro says: “On March 31, 2013 the sun will be hidden for a period of 60-70 hours and this is when we shall enter the period of the Fifth Sun.”
3/31/2013, 13-Ahau, 3 Wayeb has ‘strange stargate signs and portents’.

Elder Hunbatz Men comments on our imminent, ancient remembrance:

“According to the prophecies, in the year 2013 the first stage of higher understanding will begin. If we are willing to work with our subconscious, we will then be able to reclaim the information that has been impregnated in the deepest parts of our being. In this way, the ancient knowledge will rise again.”
Hunbatz Men, Daykeeper and Mayan Elder

Don Alejandro picks March 31st 2013 for 60-70 hours of darkness

Don Alejandro picks March 31st 2013 for 60-70 hours of darkness

Other possible interpretations include:
—something affecting communications/electronics—Coronal Mass Ejection or large solar flare—
—temporary or combined effect from asteroid 2012—DA14
—metaphysical/energetic event affecting some people—or a new intuitive?/level of communication
—an externalization of an internal personal shift

It is a milestone date.

According to Melchizedek, the Guatemalan Maya are convinced that their date for the ‘transition’-shift’s happening on February 19th, 2013 is correct. The Sun-Venus cycle closes March 28th*; Don Alejandro dreads March 31st. Hunbatz Men says we have nothing to fear. Some say the shift has passed.

And there are several crop circle-Mayan studies/theories, including those on the CropCircleConnector site to satisfy the hungriest Venusian-addict. Take your pick.
*Detailed Venus calendar calculations here.

To be sure, 2013 has waited behind the veil of 2012 for long enough. Now the serpent of light is squeezing out from below the dawn and, if we’re open to it, willing to give our intuitive consciousness the full rein of its supreme intelligence, along with the billion-year-old carbon-fuelled DNA in our cells—and with our right hemisphere—this serpent energy may trigger our solar-inspired cells to become more than the sum of our parts: perhaps even to fulfill the destiny our [Egyptian, Sumerian, Assyrian, Greek, Russian, Roman, dare I say Atlantean?] forefathers foretold: “to become as one with the gods”.

Will it be a happy Valentine’s Day? If immortality awaits, are we really, culturally, humanly, lovingly, intuitively, psychically ready?

Equinox: Stargate Portal to 2012 Final Quarter

September 26, 2012

Inca portal of Amaru Muru at Hayu Marca, which is believe to give access to the world of serpent wisdom and interdimensional travel

Last weekend the sun stood, as it does on both equinoxes—March 21st, September 22nd—directly overhead on earth’s equator, before making its (apparent) journey southward towards the tropic of Capricorn, where it will stand on winter solstice—S.hemisphere midsummer—on December 21st, 2012. For one day and night, everyone on planet earth experienced a twelve-hour day* and twelve-hour night, with sunrise due east and sunset due west. From now on, days in the northern hemisphere will appear dramatically shorter. If that were not enough to make the most avid outdoorsman turn inwards for consolation, the end of the British crop circle season would appear to be a done deal.

*allowance is made for sunrays appearing before ‘dawn’, giving longer daylight at some latitudes.

Sacred Tzolkin, ritual calendar of the ancient Maya, predicted within its Harmonic Matrix a unique succession of Galactic Activation Portals (GAPs)—13 tones of Creation in sequence—between September 11-21, 2012

The sacred ritual Tzolkin calendar of the Maya, often used for divination, predicted long ago that, during these ten days/ten consecutive portals which came in succession between September 11th and equinox eve, September 21st, 2012, our planet would stand in a space unencountered before in our time on earth: a space some would call interdimensional: a time to communicate with our higher selves; elevating each other, strengthening ourselves within the vibrational window.

Because there were portal parameters within which to work, perhaps it encouraged more people to try: the crop circle community certainly went at it, alongside others, which in turn augmented the surrounding energy.

Ten days ago, before Equinox, a lot of people were feeling it; writing about it in blogs. And the New Age section of Twitter seemed to pick up on it, spiritual tweets flowing daily with advice on personal development and support. For a period of ten days the internet seemed to take on a positive, enhancing shield: allowing input/expression and growth. What fun.

Language of Light embedded in crop circle code? Light on Hackpen Hill formation August 26th, 2012, now considered the “conduit closing” message of the season: full of cross-cultural clues, hints, pointers

Even more exciting is that several traditions are colliding at this time, each with its own calendrical calculation, meaning, and mantra. The Judaic calendar counted entry into the year 5773 on Monday September 17th, Rosh Hashanah, followed by even more sacred Yom Kippur, September 26th, the Day of Atonement. In the Roman Catholic—and indeed Judaic/Coptic calendar—Archangel Michael’s feast follows on September 29th, Michaelmas.

Of all world calendars, the Hebrew count, begun in c.3800BC, is the most reliable, predictable counter of Time. Julius Caesar’s calendar of early Rome—the Julian—updated and corrected only two years before he died in 44BC, lasted for fifteen centuries, until it started losing days (how careless) and was superseded by the Gregorian Calendar of 1582, currently in use by the western world. By embedding leap years, it succeeded in tightening up the anomaly with the solar year, from which it now differs by only 26 seconds.

Calendars of ancient Egypt, dating from the Old Kingdom (2780 – 2250BC), are seldom quoted these days, but the sacred tablets of the Pharoahs and temple inscriptions indicate deep understanding of the workings of the heavens, of creation, space-time, and, most revealing of all, the measurement of the precession of the equinoxes: which all early cultures recognized as marking divisions in the celestial sphere, as accurately as the minute hand on a grandfather clock.

Zep Tepi: Beginning of Time [First Time]
Ancient texts, such as the (much-maligned) Hebrew/Aramaic Dead Sea Scrolls, and the Egyptian ‘Knowledge of Thoth’, insist that we humans are destined to become gods; that from their Zep Tepi—Dawn of Time—literally First Time—we were programmed to evolve beyond our present terrestrial form. The Egyptian god spoke of the Star Walkers, individuals who, like Enoch, traveled beyond the Great Eye of Orion [out of the program] and returned, to walk like gods amongst men. Such evolved humans are comparable with the ‘Lords of Light’ of the Maya, Sumerian Nephilim or Anunnaki—”those who from Heaven to Earth came”—and the Tibetan Shining Ones/Dakini.

Prehistoric Serpent Mound contained no burials; raised as a sacred emblem to the Adena people’s protective spirit in Ohio’s lush farming hinterland: egg in serpent’s mouth aligns with summer solstice sunset

Enochian texts suggested that regular cataclysmic changes would act as evolutionary agent provocateur, to quicken resident life forms into taking the next evolutionary step—prior to exodus from the womb planet, or creational egg.

According to many world legends, the Zep Tepi returns at the beginning and end of each time cycle, the 13,000 year half-point of our solar system’s 26,000-year zodiacal orbit around galactic center, seen in the precession of the equinoxes. Because of conditions in our galactic orbit, these 13,000 year intervals or ‘worlds’ appear separated by cataclysmic upheaval, ongoing throughout history.

So it is a revelation to discover that, alongside the Long Count Calendar of the Maya, the calendar-in-stone of the Great Pyramid—or ‘Phoenix Cycle’ of our galactic orbit, in Gregorian time, converted—reveals that their predicted end-time also falls on December 21st, 2012.

Compared with these, the Long Count calendar of the Maya, founded in 3114BC, now 5126 years old, a combination of cosmology and the measurement of Man’s evolution, is the most romantic and prophetic of ancient counting systems. Alongside their sacred, ritual Tzolkin and the solar/fiscal Haab, the Longcount is the most cosmically satisfying. Its dramatic predictions have gained a huge fanbase during 2012, ranging from a most evocative Native American cultural resurgence, to the outlandish/misleading Apolcalypse Now scenario.

The four faces of the nine-stepped pyramid of El Castillo, dedicated to Kukulcán at Chichén Itzá, Yucatán is divided into 4×91 steps = 364, plus the common top step = 365 days = 1 solar year

It is no surprise, then, that on equinox again this year thousands gathered at Chichén Itzá in present-day Yucatán to watch sunset. Guatemala is Maya heartland, Yucatán, its former spiritual home (now within Mexico), where on equinox, twice every year the magical serpent of light (Sun) weaves its snakelike form down (September) and up (March) the step-pyramid El Castillo’s rampart outline against the sky; hundreds of neighboring Guatemalan and Mexican visitors attended the sunset ceremony on equinox, September 22nd this year.

Looking back on the 2012 season, it is remarkable that something we wrote in 2010 applies this year, too:

The (crop circles) brought us dimensions beyond those we’re accustomed to thinking in, sacred geometry and energy vortices and power places known to all previous civilizations, but somehow ‘lost’ to our own: magical light orbs and mysterious high-pitched sound accompanying the formation of a circle or even group meditative ‘requests’ for such a crop appearance.

Serpent Symbolism in World Myths

Seven little serpent ‘tadpoles’ appeared just before Equinox in an Ohio field within the Hopewell ancient mounds; neighboring Adams county is home to the famed Serpent Mound of the Adena or ‘Fort Ancient’ culture, 1000BC-AD1000, photo courtesy Jeff Wilson

2012 brought to light a much deeper cultural myth, however: the cosmic intervention of the Serpent. Debased in Judaeo-Christian ethos as pagan ignorance, belief of a common (peasant) mentality—and blamed for Man’s expulsion from the Garden of Eden for suggesting knowledge gained from the Tree of Life—the serpent/dragon/kundalini energy nevertheless has come back to ‘educate’ us: literally [Latin, e-ducere=]to lead us out from our mindless state of cultural ignorance—into the Light.

It is not as if ancestral serpent wisdom has not been trying to alert us: the Egyptian pharaoh-god-king habitually wore the uraeus as a symbol of divine knowledge; modern physicians are represented by the caduceus, the staff of their lengthy studies entwined with the serpent imparting its wisdom. The dragon is totem for all oriental cultures, and even English hero, St George, is depicted as slaying his own dragon (of so-called pagan ignorance). Italian culture used serpent symbolism, as did the Romans, and the Greek Ouroboros famed as representing Mankind undulating forth around the Earth, only to return to seek its own beginnings.

To the Maya, however, and possibly—while little understood—to the indigenous cultures of North America as represented by the Adena people, above—the serpent of wisdom-knowledge-enlightenment-consciousness is one who seeks to return not only to ancient ways, but to its own birth canal; the Maya sacred tree, which grows in the dark chasm at the center of the Milky Way, the birth canal—Vesica Piscis—to which its child, the Sun, solar system and all earth-dwellers will return on winter solstice 2012.

So, if the latest equinoctial surprise in Ohio, above, of a crop circle of serpent-tadpoles emulating the serpent-alien theme that decked Wiltshire fields in profusion all summer, has come to give us a final message at the end of the season, it is perhaps this: as stated in the now famous crop circle of Chilbolton 2002:

Beware the bearers of FALSE gifts and their BROKEN PROMISES. Much PAIN but still time. BELIEVE. There is GOOD out there. We OPpose DECEPTION. conduit closing (bell sound)

The Ohio tadpole ring, while resonant with the Serpent Mound in neighboring Adams County, appeared within the ancient mounds of the Hopewell culture. It is now well-known within the crop circle community that several strands of consciousness, meaning and significance are embedded in such glyphs, and its occurrence at Hopewell may indeed be another message: one for the human race to BELIEVE, to hope well, to look forward to what the future has in store for us.

Almost as a postscript, comes the knowledge produced by current advances in DNA research, where studies have shown that our very cells—junk DNA—are encoded to remember who we are. Such is the golden alchemy of time and consciousness that is unfolding now before our eyes.

What culminated in the British crop circle seasonal finale—the subliminal message(s) of Hackpen interdimensional cube-within-a-portal, above—the serpent mother-Earth pictures of Picked Hill, Avebury and Woodborough, and now seen in the tadpole ring at Hopewell, Ohio, is a strand of communication now penetrating our thought patterns collectively as a culture.

If we are open to it, it appears to be a message from our own higher consciousnes: that ancestral serpent knowledge is alive and that all is well.

Solar Plasma: Our Seismic Sound & Fury

March 16, 2011

How could a tone become a picture and light become a noise? Carl Sagan

Solar X-class flare October 2003--Honshu 7.0magnitude quake occurred two days later

No-one watching film footage from last Friday’s horrific 8.9-magnitude earthquake in Honshu–and in other sensitive areas of seismic activity in the Pacific–can fail to feel compassion for those affected by volcanic eruptions, earthquakes and resulting tsunamis. Japan’s death toll is currently around 10,000. Now Honshu’s crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant is in critical condition, with comparisons being made with Chernobyl (25 years ago, April 1986) and Windscale (“Sellafield“, October 1957). Other quakes are being felt in Tonga, Fiji and the Gulf of California.

Hawaii’s Kilauea erupted March 7th-11th, with subsequent quakes this week within a substratum of fissures in the Volcanic Park at the SE corner of “Big” island in the Hawaiian chain. As Kilauea has been active since 1983, little attention worldwide has been paid to this most recent activity–except by HVO who monitor constantly. Kilauea’s main eruption happened Wednesday 09-03-11.

While praying that the critical situation in Daiichi nuclear power plant will be averted, this blog wishes to reflect the supreme human effort being made to focus on what is important for Mankind, despite/because of what is happening in the active region known as the Pacific Ring of Fire.

We are beginning to realize that these seismic surprises are not isolated incidents and that they are a response to movement of the Earth’s crust and tectonic plates (lithosphere). If we do not gear ourselves up–and act as one human movement planet-wide–we may not survive the next onslaught. That’s the bad news.

The good news is that planetary emergency measures have already begun. Charities, relief agencies and US Military have pulled together to bring help to the stricken areas.

A similar response occurred after the Haiti 7.0 earthquake one year ago when over 200,000 people lost their lives. Now relief agencies are having to share resources and the Caribbean island’s restructure efforts are being put on hold, while rescue agencies and life-support groups are flown to Pacific Rim areas instead.

Pacific Rim Landfall where tsunami ripples from Friday's 8.9 magnitude earthquake reached, in hours

While quake-derived tsunami off Tokyo and Sendai, Japan resulted in the loss of life and a way of living which is locally deeply mourned, it is crucial to maintain awareness of its significance on a planetary level.

The Honshu tsunami rippled across the Pacific pond in under 12 hours, causing havoc in Hawaii, Chile, Central America and the US Northwest Pacific coastal cities of Santa Cruz, Mendocino, Eureka and Crescent City. Here rare bird colonies were wiped out, whales and shoals of sardines beached.

Meantime, New Zealand communities of Canterbury and Christchurch are still cleaning up after the February 21st 6.3-magnitude quake three miles deep in the Heathcote Valley which claimed the lives of 166 people. It does not bear thinking that one year previously the 7.0 magnitude earthquake in Haiti brought a deathtoll of 230,000. Phuket island in Thailand is only now recovering from the 9.1 magnitude quake and tidal wave of December 26, 2004 which killed 168,000 people.

There has been world response.

SOLAR POWER
Somehow, despite media overkill–and possibly because of the nuclear threat– oil stocks plunged on Wall Street and individuals and environmental agencies are asking for a different response: a simpler energy solution; a cleaner way of life–pedal-power, electric/solar vehicles. This time it is possible they may be heard. It has been suggested that, as the Nipponese automobile industry will have to start from scratch, it may surprise the world in manufacturing solar-powered vehicles.

We are now four years into the new Solar Cycle #24 of waxing solar (emission) activity, with powerup to solar maximum next year, 2012. For over 150 years scientists have been able telescopically to view the sun’s surface to witness the rise and fall of sunspot cycles.

Effect of electromagnetically charged solar flare on man-made satellites and the geomagnetic sphere

“Each cycle lasts about 11 years, and in-step with this, many other cycles keep a rough cadence. Northern and Southern Lights (aurora) are more common during sunspot maximum than minimum. Titanic solar flares–brighter than a million hydrogen explosions–come and go with each cycle. But on a darker side, solar flares can kill, electrically-charged plasma can cause blackouts, and satellites can literally be forced out of the sky” Dr Sten Odenwald, Author of ‘Learning to Live with a Stormy Star‘ (Columbia Univ. Press, 2000)

Because the date 2012 has received much publicity–both positive (Mayan Long Count calendar culmination) and negative (Apocalypse End Times)– Many are aware of ‘something’ pending, hanging over us all as a species and, for the first time in a long time–an Age– we are beginnning to think as One.

We are also thinking quicker. Time–along with our learning curve–appears to be speeding up, too.

It is even possible that, with the current seismic catalyst, we are becoming, what Nikolai Kardashev via Michio Kaku calls a Level One Civilization.

Nikolai Semenovich Kardashev (Никола́й Семёнович Кардашёв) (b.1932) is a Russian astrophysicist, and director of the Russian Space Research Institute (Institute for Cosmic Research) at Russian Academy of Sciences in Moscow. He is author of the (1964) paper in Soviet Astronomy “Transmission of Information by Extraterrestrial Civilizations”. He devised a scale of three categories by which a civilization is classified by the amount of usable energy it has at its disposal–plus a degree of space colonization. Others have added two higher categories.

Kardashev Type I
civilization is one able to harness all the power available on its (single) planet. The implication is that in so doing, it is able to function as ‘one’ and therefore to have mastered the supreme mark of a self-realized group: peaceful interaction.

Kardashev Type II civilization is able to harness all power available from its star.

Kardashev Type III civilization can harness all the power in a single galaxy. With the power of an entire galaxy at its disposal, a type III civilization would be able to come up with radical new power sources.

By extrapolation, a Kardashev Type IV civilization would have access to the power of an entire galactic supercluster. Kardashev Type V would be a civilization that occupies the entire universe.

Michio Kaku, theoretical physicist at New York’s City University, instigator of the Big Think discussion thinktank, and author of ‘Physics of the Future‘, released this week, suggests that, even with the Pacific crisis in full flow (and eliciting world humanitarian response), the Earth is as yet not a Category One civilization.

Carl Sagan estimated that Earth qualifies as a Type 0.7 civilization. Before he died in 1996, however–and in spite of his agnostic view–he had hopes that we might overcome our aversion to living in harmony–or rather, to lay down our weapons of war, and interact peacefully with one another. “Decency,” he said (and humility and community spirit) “in this demon-haunted world may be all that stands between us and the enveloping darkness.”

In all of the four-billion-year history of life on our planet, in all of the four-million-year history of the human family, there is only one generation privileged to live through that unique transitional moment. That generation is ours.”
Carl Sagan

This month the pragmatic scientists are having a field day. Geologists continue to profess that a connection between electromagnetic surges in solar plasma and seismic volatility within the earth’s core is “geologically implausible”.

Last month it was the turn of the theoretical and spiritual physicists–those, like Leonard Susskind and Richard Feynmann, who developed M-theory, or TOE, the Theory of Everything–a string-theory derivative that excites astrophysicists and biochemists alike.

In this [TOE] field of quantum physics, consciousness is viewed as a unified field where everything is seen as everything else. There are no boundaries. No ‘you’ and ‘me’; no ‘this’ or ‘that’. Only a field of awareness–consciousness. It has been suggested that we switch our perception from genetics to energetics: and that we recognize our bodies (and the planet) as energy vibrating at a very dense frequency.

This shift in perception creates a different way of viewing ourselves in the 3D/4D space-time continuum.

Correlation between crop circles and sound

ALBERT EINSTEIN: “Concerning matter, we have been all wrong. What we have called matter is energy, whose vibration has been so lowered as to be perceptible to the senses. There is no matter.”

Nature uses only the longest threads to weave her patterns, so each small piece of her fabric reveals the organization of the entire tapestry.”
Richard Feynman

It can only be a matter of time before the geologists will change their tune and realize that–if all is energy and the Sun, our parent star, an increasingly explosive mass of plasma/energy–its hurling great gobs of electromagnetic pulses in our direction is almost bound to affect us, its tiny magnetically-powered offspring, in countless ways. Causing massive rifts in the earth’s crust will be seen as only one of those myriad effects.

As a child at the 1939 New York’s World’s Fair (his revelation, at top), Carl Sagan’s own world was turned upside-down by a vision of graphs and sonic tones replicated in scientific instrumentation. Nowadays we take such intra-dimensional expression for granted. Pie charts are only a flick of the wrist away from spectrographs which reveal the magnetic cores of extra-solar planets, hurtling comets or the mystic music emitted by Neptune.

Our generation has learned that the electromagnetic (EM) spectrum–from radio waves through microwaves, infra-red, visible light, ultra-violet light, to x-rays and gamma rays– are all massless particles (photons) of the universal energy known as electromagnetic radiation, or simply Light. Light waves are fluctuations of electric and magnetic energy through space, usually expressed (by humans) in wavelength or frequency.

Sound is also measured in wavelength and frequency, with two major differences: sound (at the lowest end of the spectrum) travels at 1100ft per second; light (“C”, as expressed in E=MC2) at the high end, at 186,000mps. And while sound can travel through dense matter/objects, light cannot. The denser the material, the slower it travels, e.g. light travels around one-third more slowly through water than through air and space.

SOUND FREQENCIES AND THEIR HEALING QUALITIES

“Angels of Biblical metaphor were equated with song and the Word of God. Acoustical pressure is the only real difference between instantaneous light waves and slower material existence.” Brendan Bombaci


All faiths use sound to reach the Supreme. The early Christian church was no exception in trying to reach God through harmonies expressed within the sacred geometric environs of cathedrals. Their hallowed vaults were from earliest times designed to uplift both the supplicant and the surrounding community. Gregorian chant is the only version of this sacred music left to us. The rest of what was the Solfeggio–Sol-Fa– system of tuning into sacred tones is considered ‘lost’. Musical convention has since 1953 altered ‘concert pitch’ [A=432Hertz] to the more strident and dissonant A=440, agreed by the International Standards Orgaization (ISO) based on a previous recommendation by Joseph Goebbels in 1939. It is now the accepted standard pitch for orchestras, bands and individual instruments.

Basically, there are six Holy frequencies, the ‘original sacred tones’, called the Solfeggio.

Do 396HZ ‘Liberates guilt and fear’-–associated with releasing emotional patterns.
Re 417Hz ‘Undoing situations, facilitating change’-– breaks up crystallized emotional patterns.
Mi 528 Hz DNA Repair, ‘connecting all the strands’-–related to transformation and miracles.
Fa 639 Hz ‘connecting/relationships’-–whole brain quadrant interconnectedness.
Sol 741Hz ‘Awakening intuition’-–associated with intuitive states, non-linear knowing.
La 852Hz ‘Return to the Spiritual Order’-–a pure love frequency: unconditional love and return to spiritual order.
Doctor of Divinity David Hulse, founder of SomaEnergetics is reintroducing original sacred tones to help heal people’s lives. He believes that “ancient Solfeggio contains frequencies that can start everyone’s ascension process”.

“The body is held together by sound—the presence of disease indicates that some sounds have gone out of tune.”
Deepak Chopra

An in-depth (and exciting intellectual) treatise by Brendan Bombaci on the ancient connections between sacred geometry, music, the Sun and our archaic weights and measures system can be pondered here.

Others, from Galileo to Hans Jenny, studied Cymatics: wave patterns converted into a visual display of sound. John Stuart Reid in Britain and Jack Kassewitz in the USA together developed the Cymascope, originally to record patterns made by whales and other cetaceans in song. Their work shows remarkable correlation between patterns created by different tones in grains of sand and those designs of exquisite complexity in crop circles.

John Reid says:
“432 Hertz pops out as a triangle every time we image it.
We thought there was something wrong with the CymaScope™ but after trying for more than an hour we concluded that the number three was somehow universally connected to 432 Hertz.

“We captured it on video and it looks like it’s alive. It writhes and pulsates and refuses to take up any other form. We researched the reason why it takes up this geometry and it turns out to be an interesting case: when A is tuned to 432Hz the frequencies of the other A (octaves) shift (within a decimal point) to 27 Hz, 54, 108, 216, 864, 1728 in other octaves – all divisible by three. And the higher the frequency, the greater the geometric intricacy.

“D tuned to 576 Hz becomes 9 Hz, 18, 36, 72, 144, 288, 1152 in other octaves. E becomes 324 Hz which becomes 81 Hz, 162, 648, 1296 in other octaves. All of these frequencies are divisible by three: the cosmic triangle.”

Translated into mathematics, 432hz vibrates at the frequency of the golden mean PHI. As a Fibonacci sequence, it unifies the properties of light, time, space, matter, gravity and magnetism with biology, the DNA code and consciousness.

SON ET LUMIÈRE IN CROP CIRCLES

“There is no doubt that our present worldview is undergoing tumultuous change, and at such times, the collective unconscious of humanity reaches out for guidance. Because our thoughts are electromagnetic pulses which transcend time and space, it is possible that our request has been received, and information is manifesting in fields around the world.” Freddy Silva

The crop circle phenomenon is a product of both light and sound–both media have been witnessed by reliable sources–as light orbs and sonic high-pitched hum during their formation.

Silva’s is the enlightened ‘croppie’ view. He is among several renowned thinkers (including Kiesha Crowther) who will speak at this summer’s Prophets Conference in Glastonbury July 1-8, 2011. His view reflects that of a growing number who believe that annually recurring patterns in the English countryside and other summer pastures around the globe are created by a vibrational source that we do not yet quite comprehend.

Understanding is on the tip of our tongues, the edge of our minds. We are pushing the boundaries of higher dimensions and those dimensions are letting us in.

Progressively, in recent years, complex mathematical and geometric patterns have evolved which are more than the variable graphic produced by random cymatics. They contain an expression of our own maturing consciousness. They show intelligence at a deep resonating level which responds to an expression of our own deep need for connection to that Universal Intelligent Source.

We are getting answers.

Do we–the human race pushing our way through the cosmic birth canal to Level I–remember the question?

Galactic Center calling Earth: Blue Moon signal; pick up please

December 31, 2009

December Full Moon rises exactly at sunset on the opposite (NNE) horizon - latitude 57ºN

New Year’s Eve – the last day of 2009 or Hogmanay, as the Scots call it – will be triply auspicious. Not only is it the eve of a new year, a new decade no less, but it will be graced by a full moon, a partial lunar eclipse, and the Moon will be Blue. In celestial spheres you might say we are being given the royal treatment; or at least being sent a signal.

When a month is graced with two full moons, the second one is called a blue moon. You know, the ‘once in a blue moon’ blue moon? Because our modern calendar calculates by the sun (annual orbit of the Earth round the sun takes 365.25 days), its 30- and 31-day months take us out of synch with our nearest neighbour, whose cycle is 29.53 days. Only the female menstrual cycle and the oceans remain in touch with our lunar companion. The rest of humanity seems to have forgotten what cosmic rhythm is.

Blue moon of May 2007 seen at 40ºN latitude USA

Because of the lunar/solar anomaly, only 41 months in every century can be called true blue moon months, hence a fairly rare occasion. The blue moon cycle of 2.72 years, therefore, makes it something special. December 2009 already had a full moon on the night of December 1st/2nd. The last blue moon month was May 2007 and the next will occur in August 2012.

This New Year’s Eve, because the full moon always rises at the moment of sunset on the opposite horizon and because the moon will not be full this December 31st until 7:13pm GMT, those of us in the Old World will be able to witness the full orb of Luna rise at sunset in the Northeastern skies on Hogmanay night. That’s 4pm GMT in London, home counties, Midlands and Birmingham and about half an hour earlier (3:20pm) in Edinburgh where Hogmanayers will only just be starting their all-night revelry. Four hours later, as Jupiter prepares to set in the southwestern sky, the moon’s disc reaches its fullest and the Earth moves between her and the sun to cast a shadow over her in partial eclipse. This moment of maximum partiality occurs at 19:23 UTC, 7:23pmGMT or 11:23am PST. In astronomical terms it is not a full (total) eclipse because earth’s shadow (eclipse magnitude) will only reach 0.0763, but for us earthlings in the eastern hemisphere it will still be a singular sight.

Solar system planets from outer orbits looking in

At midnight when Hogmanay reaches crisis point in Scotland’s capital, when they shoot off fireworks from the battlements of Edinburgh castle to welcome the new year to the screech of bagpipes, very few, I suspect, will note that the ‘New Year star’, Sirius, reaches its zenith in our northern skies. Sirius will stand behind Orion in the south with the Moon, in Cancer, followed in close proximity by our secondmost close neighbour Mars, the ‘red’ planet, retracing its steps through Leo as we enter 2010. The ringed giant does not arrive on the scene until late when the revellers are wending their weary way home: Saturn is a ‘morning’ planet right now, best seen in the east in the hours before dawn, with its spectacular rings just starting to ‘open’ to our view.

That’s the astronomical picture.

The astrological one is a little different. It reflects a vastly complex array of planetary influences to which our ancestors paid heed, but which Technological Man tends to ignore. However, like the menstrual cycle affecting the female population, it is well, occasionally, to pay attention to heavenly bodies and the way they appear to sway our passage through the cosmos.

At winter solstice the Sun enters the cardinal earth sign of Capricorn, having played and filled us with optimism in late November while in fiery Sagittarius, encouraging us to look to the future, fulfill our dreams. Capricorn Sun and Cancer full Moon bring those dreams and our grasp on reality into sharp focus: both make us examine our ‘outer’ career, capabilities, achievement potential and ‘inner’ love of family, home, need for a peaceful centre: their polarity challenges us to fix our relationships. Cancer may be content to be dependent, Capricorn urges us to be grown-up and responsible. Cancer represents the origin, Capricorn looks to the goal. In this mix stands the astrological giant Saturn in Libra, exerting discipline, demanding that we find balance. Mars, because of retrograde motion in Leo, is teasing us, telling us ego fantasies, diverting our attention from the path of loving acceptance. Our usual mental messenger, our Mercurial helper is currently useless; he is doing a backwards dance through Capricorn and being uncommunicative. It is up to us to review how well we’re using our own natural-financial-mental resources. However, on January 5th, Mercury is joined by loving Venus, so all is not lost. There is hope in the days ahead. The loving, healing solution may show us a way through our planetary difficulties.

Fortunately, we may still call on the largest of the planets: Jupiter, which presently consorts with another friendly giant, Neptune, the bringer of change. Together they stand in forward-looking Aquarius and are guaranteed to bring abundance into our lives, fresh ideas, a new focus, perhaps even a totally unexpected way of solving our problems. Both reflect the potential for the spiritual, the mystical, even a miracle, to bring about the change we cannot perceive ourselves.

This brings us to the spiritual view.

At the time of the December solstice each year the sun approaches the heart of the Milky Way, our Home Galaxy, and conjoins with Galactic Center in the constellation Sagittarius. At this time of year the Earth also gets closest to our own star, Sol. Closest point in our orbit, perihelion, happens annually on January 2nd/3rd.

Through the ages, after solstice when the sun moves northward along the horizon again, each month setting farther and farther north, the period from winter solstice to summer solstice was festival season. In several ancient civilizations winter solstice was associated with the return of a Sun-God to save the world, the bringer of light and fruitfulness to the earth, and hope to humanity.

Spiritual communities too, mindful of ritual handed down from ancestral hierarchies, hold winter solstice sacred, meditating and communing with the silence of winter in a kind of mental hibernation which itself opens up communication with Source. It is at midwinter that many begin preparations for the three major festivals of spring and summer: in the Celtic calendar they are known as Imbolc (February 2nd), spring equinox (Ostara, Easter) and Beltainn (May 1st).

Other indigenous cultures celebrate on these dates, the Hopi, Maya, Chinese, Arab, Vedic and Zulu, but one which has gained world-wide recognition is the May full moon celebration of Wesak, the greatest festival in the Buddhist calendar. All surviving cultures which perpetuate these ancient forms begin with a meditation at winter solstice which culminates in the May celebration.

It is fascinating, then, to discover that in using an ancient technique of knowing when the planet is at its closest to Galactic Center, by aligning with cosmic energy emanating from the black hole at the center of the Milky Way, at the crossing of Galactic Center with celestial ecliptic, at a time when the Earth is herself at her perihelion, closest to her own star, and when the stella maris, the ‘spiritual sun’ Sirius is at her zenith, ancient civilizations and their modern devotees discovered a means to tuning into the cosmic Source of all energy, knowing, and guidance.

In the sacred Long Count calendar of the Maya, one of the most accessible of ancient calculations to modern man, within a period called a Great World Age, an eon, an unimaginably-huge 26,000-year timespan, there are only a few moments when we Earth people come closest to the center of this cosmic cross, the point where the ecliptic crosses the Milky Way, at precise center of our Galaxy.

Galactic Center where stars are born

This nebulous area of the Universe, where stars are born, is our own cosmic womb, from which we, as stardust emerged. It is from this hole in the Cosmos that many spiritual masters and followers believe emanates a divine energy; that the centre of the galaxy is constantly emitting and transmitting a pure energy source which may be utilized in our conscious co-creative process to amplify and transmit new programmes of operation to us, to amplify our awareness and to broadcast light energy directly to enhance human DNA.

Winged serpent sun god Quetzalcoatl of the Maya from Codex Borgia

In the mythology of the Maya, it is to this great birth canal or womb aperture that Creator-sun-god Quetzalcoatl, mythical feathered serpent, one who crawls on Mother Earth but also flies in the heavens will return on winter solstice 2012. This cosmic re-union symbolizes the joining of spirit with matter, in order to be reborn: the Shift of the Ages.

Our alignment with Galactic Center occurs only once in every 25,800 years. We have come close to it several times in the last three decades. During the so-called ‘Galactic alignment period’, or ‘era-2012’ between 1980 and 2016, the closest the Earth came to Galactic Center was on December 21st, 1998.

Galactic center is exactly where the December solstitial sun will stand at noon Universal Time on December 21st, 2012.

Is it any wonder then that we as a species are being given a few reminders of this cosmic date only a couple of years up the stellar turnpike?

If Galactic Center is transmitting messages, is it not logical for us, a technologically advanced civilization, to pick up the spiritual phone?
