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.

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.

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.

Wiring under the MotherBoard: a Glimpse of how the Universe works

October 12, 2011

October 6th crop circle at East Field, Alton Barnes highlights overwintering wildlife-friendly crop of brassica and barley,

We are trapped in a world of too much infor-mation. Innocence is gone for us. We cannot expect to cross the Rainbow Bridge through a good act of contrition; that will not be sufficient.
We have to understand.
Terence McKenna (1946-2000)
American philosopher, author, ethnobotanist and visionary

With the onset of October, country communities in the Northern hemisphere are preparing for winter and ‘death’ of the Earth, farmers gathering up strawbales for feed, ploughing and planting overwintering crops. Meanwhile in the cities, activity usually turns to entertainment or to seasonal frivolity—thoughts inwards are not usually the province of mass media. But societal consciousness has changed and now, where it used to be the ‘news’ that people watched, it is the internet, with increasing mass communication of End Times, not entirely uninfluenced by this month’s Calleman version end-date of the Tzolkin Calendar of the Maya on October 28th. On that date, he says, humanity reaches the top of the Ninth Wave, the peak of the nine-step pyramid of Underworlds/Consciousness: the End of Time as we know it.

Autumn this year, however, has brought out the youth of humanity into the streets in droves. The young ones have decided enough is enough; time to speak up about world conditions: Occupy Wall Street *(OWS) has burgeoned into Occupy Chicago, and Los Angeles (second week); with Occupy Maine and Portland,OR., Dallas, Boston (from Oct.6), Dublin and Phoenix (Oct.8, Yom Kippur) Iowa and London (Oct.9, Day for Trees), and including a flurry of Occupy cities scheduled for October 15th, World Revolution Day, collectively marking World Food Day, Columbus Day and Canadian Thanksgiving. Cities—and countries—joining the Occupy movement this week include Montreal, Canada; Brussels, Belgium; Sweden, Holland, Finland and France.

It is no mean feat to camp out in foul weather, with storms predicted—which mid-October often brings—with donated food, little shelter, less money and no end in sight. Yet, this is what the movement is prepared to withstand, in order to get a message across to their audience—the ‘fat cats’—that the underdog has tolerated intolerance and inequality long enough and it’s time to make a stand on human rights.

Truth cannot be told, so as to be understood, and not be believ’d—William Blake
[If the truth can be told so as to be understood, it will be believed]

It is no coincidence that mainstream media has ignored the Occupy movement. It appears to be too sensitive an issue to report responsibly. It touches too many sacred cows that have been allowed to roam for so long and eat all the pasture; so that amazing technological extension of human consciousness—the internet—has picked up the slack.

The worldwide web has been alive with the OWS movement, with wild stories as well as heart-warming intimacies, spreading faster than mainstream negative news is capable of reporting. The internet has come into its own.

The internet has always had purpose: to bring together MINDS. FB and Twitter are just the fluff on the exterior blowing into the winds of change… there is a deeper connection we are beginning to see and need to appreciate and use. This extension-of-Mind was foreseen by many visionaries, but we, the Now generation—from teenage OWSers to aging Baby Boomers (now outnumbered by the teens)—are still here and can make it work for us.

Mind, consciousness, creative thought have always been Mankind’s blessing, his headstart on the lesser animals, but the Earth is straining under her human shackles. She, too, wants to be free.

The Earth, like her biological inhabitants, seems to be responding to that End-of-Time ‘attractor’, a point beyond the human now, a future dream coming closer—McKenna’s ‘Dwellpoint ahead in the temporal dimension’, his Eschaton.

Glittering entity attracting us into our future... ALMA's first deepspace image, Catseye nebula

This scintillating object glittering in hyperspace, throws off reflections of itself, which actually ricochet into the past, illuminating this mystic, inspiring that saint or visionary, and out of these fragmentary glimpses of eternity we can build a kind of map, not only of the past of the Universe and the evolutionary progression into Novelty, but a map of the future.

Human history represents such a radical break with the natural systems of biological organization that preceded it, that we are now in shock.

I think people have a very narrow conception of what is possible with reality, that we’re surrounded by the howling abyss of the unknowable and nobody knows what’s out there.

Western religions have persistently integrated into their theologies the notion of a kind of end of the world, Ascension, stepping into heaven-on-earth. It seems that is not going to happen according to any of the orthodox religious scenarios, however, but through basic human will and intuition.

The Universe her/himself—that great Being we dare not see as intelligent—seeks closure in a kind of omega point of transcendence. And s/he will take us, the Earth, the Sun, the solar system and the Galaxy, along with her.

Ritually tuning into the earth...

This is what shaman- ism has always been about. A shaman is someone who has been to the end. He knows how the world really works, and knowing how the world really works means to have risen outside, above, beyond the dimensions of ordinary space, time, and causality. He has actually seen the wiring under the board, stepped outside the confines of learned culture and embedded language, into the presence of what Wittgenstein called “the unspeakable”.

This presence will yield knowledge which can be brought back for the good of the community. For 90% of human culture, the shaman has been the agent of evolution. He learns techniques to go between ordinary reality and the realm of ideas, this higher dimensional continuum that is somehow parallel with us, available to us, and yet ordinarily occluded by cultural convention out of fear of the Mystery. Shamans have been able to de-condition themselves from Society’s instinctual distrust of the Mystery, in order to go into this bewildering higher dimension, and gain knowledge. They recover and bring back the jewel lost at the beginning of time: to save souls, cure, commune with the ancestors.
T McKenna, 1997

Almost invariably, the shaman who finds himself in the transcendental presence of the Other is humbled. But with practice, he becomes wise; and in nearly every indigenous culture on planet Earth, this Universal wisdom is shared.

The Land of Gaia
‘Shamanism is not a religion; it is a set of techniques, and one of the principal techniques is the use of visionary plants. These natural psyche-enhancers dissolve boundaries, and in the presence of dissolved boundaries, one cannot continue to close one’s eyes to the ruination of the earth, the poisoning of the seas, and the consequences of two thousand years of unchallenged dominator culture, based on monotheism, hatred of nature, suppression of the female.’ The Archaic Revival, 1991

McKenna found shamans acted as exemplars, by making a psychic journey to the domain of Gaian ideas, and then bringing them back in the form of art, and meshing them with the human struggle to save the world. The planet has its own intelligence, and under certain circumstances it will actually open a channel of communication with an individual human being.

Kiesha Crowther's new book: Message for the Tribe of Many Colors imparts earth wisdom to see us through End times

McKenna’s reverence for the human body and the planet Earth is echoed—without herbal help—by Kiesha Crowther, ‘Little Grandmother’, also a shaman, chosen keeper of earth wisdom for the Tribe of Many Colors, and from childhood a lifelong outdoors-living person. Having spent countless days and nights in the high farming community of Colorado, she is able to tune into her heightened sense of (other) life around her, speaks to birds; she can intuit an elk on the highway up ahead. She has developed her own natural shamanist gifts, reinforced by a neglectful upbringing, and enhanced by spending a lot of time alone.

Her deep connection to nature brings her into ideal relationship with her surroundings: the Earth, her ‘Mother’. She has learned to communicate with owls, river water, puma, the Earth Mother herself, on an intuitive level—without words—but often in pictures.

She gets a tingly feeling, tastes straw in her mouth, smells violets or rain, and knows that she is sensing a being nearby. She trusts her own inner voice, she listens to messages from the trees, a blade of grass, a bee. She has been bailed out of some tricky situations by listening to this ‘voice’.

Now in her early thirties, she walks forward proclaiming that we should all stop right this minute and tune into what the Earth is—really—saying. Then we would have no hesitation in stopping oil drilling, copper mining, damming salmon rivers and seeding the atmosphere with manmade storms. The Earth has, after all, always supplied our needs, given us everything we have ever demanded. But she is getting restless, tired of giving, without replenishment or simple gratitude.

Mother Earth, too, is sentient. Kiesha agrees with McKenna that it is time to take better care of her, or she may not continue to be quite so tolerant.

Kiesha says:
‘Never take anything without being given permission. We are suffering the consequences now of being planet-robbers.’

Her respect for the Earth Mother is much highlighted in her new book, ‘Message for the Tribe of Many Colors‘, published last month by EarthMother Press.

Humanity going through sudden change, evolution speeding up at an unprecedented rate

Human beings are going through a pivotal shift that almost all life-forms go through, but there is something quite unique about us. We are evolving and changing at a supersonic pace that has never been seen before in the Cosmos. We human beings are going through an evolution of consciousness, making progressive leaps much faster than any life-form before. For this reason, we have caught the attention of other beings in our galaxy and in other galaxies. It seems that planet Earth is like a child in its spiritual evolution compared to other places, and yet we are growing and making giant leaps in consciousness, because of our special placement in the solar system. Great bursts of energy from our Sun are helping to speed us up and raise our consciousness at a pace never seen before.
Kiesha Crowther, Message for the Tribe of Many Colors

She has learned that, however much negative people and outmoded opinions influence and put pressure on us, we can derive strength from this ultimate test to our spiritual will and reach through the hardest adversity to communion with our Higher Self, our Oversoul.

She believes that we can endure almost any hardship for just a little while longer until the love train starts to kick in. But it’s up to us to remember the goal, however hard our present circumstances. The movement is happening. People are beginning to live from the heart, rather than from the head. We are beginning to think as One. We are Ascending…

…But, things are falling apart. What do I do?
Kiesha now travels extensively, sharing her earth wisdom and assisting in placing specially-energized crystals in the earth at strategic points. This, she says, will help stabilize the earth grid which is also sensitive to negative manipulation by those who take what they please. She has often been asked what to do when things go crazy. Her suggestions for the End Times:

...plant a garden, know how to grow your own food, find a place to nurture your family...

Stay in the heart:
Secure loved ones & families;
Collect seeds and plant a garden;
Learn how to live sustainably, find out how to access clean water and make use of clean energy;
Instead of spending money on trinkets, buy things you need for your family; essentials which will support you and that will sustain your life through difficult times ahead.

‘Get a home, buy land if possible, grow food, store seeds, know how to grow a garden, find clean water—these are the things we should be doing to support our lives right now’
Kiesha Crowther

Turn off History

‘The twentyfirst century is the shudder that announces the approaching cataracts of time over which our species and the destiny of this planet is about to be swept.’

Coming from vastly different backgrounds, Kiesha from poverty, McKenna from the intellectual stratosphere, it is profound how much both visionaries share: in fact it’s fairly apocalyptic. Both are convinced that “History is ending”: that our generation is witnessing the revelation and purpose of the cosmos. McKenna said “History is the shock wave of the eschaton”. Crowther says “We are the strongest of the strong”, the “ones we have been waiting for”, and that we have chosen to be here to witness and help birth this time.

What this means for those of us living through this transition into hyperspace/love dimension, is that we are privileged to watch the greatest release of compressed change since the birth of the Universe. But we are also witnessing a coming together of vast groups with a common bond. It is vital we see the big picture and do not get caught up in the “old” news tactic of focusing on the negative.

The light of the Universe is made up of photons; there is no anti-particle. It's all light

The Big Picture is what is happening; differences are being laid aside. It is particularly apt that new initiatives are being led by the young. It is a long time since such freedom was witnessed and encouraged… the Boomer generation of the ‘sixties is now old and grey. But their ethos is still alive and well in the minds of the OWS youngsters. The message is not altogether alien. Flower power and ‘living in the heart’ have a similar ring.

The new physics is a physics of light. Light is composed of photons, which have no antiparticle. This means there is no dualism in the world of light.

The shockwave has huge reverberations, however.

OWS (and other) Occupy movements are taking hold; showing us a little of the wiring underneath the Motherboard. We are getting a glimpse of how the Universe works in demonstrating a coalescing of minds, bodies in the streets, consciousness in computerdom.

“House music and rave culture and rhythms are rediscovery of the art of natural magic with sound; and percussive sound can change neurological states. Large groups of people getting together in the presence of this kind of music are bonding in a telepathic community strong enough to carry the vision out into mainstream society. I think the youth culture that is emerging actually sums up Western civilization and points us in an entirely different direction.

We arrive in the third millennium, in the middle of an archaic revival—a revival of these physiologically-empowering rhythm signatures—a new art emerges, a new social vision, a new relationship to nature, to feminism, to ego.”
Terence McKenna Alien Dreamtime

Paradoxically, computer networks display a deeply feminizing influence that society needs to change its mind. (Kiesha suggests we ‘change the channel’). In the hardware, the unconscious is actually being created; and, as we are learning pretty quickly, consciousness equals reality.

Both shamans would agree that the Unconscious, the deep feminine, is that part of us which we have neglected. It is time for its magic to reemerge.

The real secret of magic is a world made of words, and if you know the words the world is made of, you can make of it whatever you wish

Tonight the Moon is full in Aries – usually a great influence for action. If Calleman’s accelerated date is correct, the pinnacle of the pyramid, the beginning of the New is only two weeks away. He is not alone in his calculation. October 28th 2011 is 13 Ahau in the Tzolkin, named ‘Return of the Ancestors’ in Mayan prophecy: a signal, perhaps, that we should all step up to the plate and serve if we are to become friends with the Earth again. Because she feels mistreated, she may have a few more storms to blow before she believes us.

Wildlife-friendly East Field median strip was featured in 3 crop circles this summer; all sited along the line leading the eye to Bronze Age Knap Hill amphitheatre (N)

The Human race is already transforming. Are we prepared for consciousness evolution at a speed never before contemplated? We have to take our future in our own hands: help the needy, share the food, plant trees, and accept our responsibility for being here at this special time on this unique planet.

A simple crop circle sequence appeared in October (top and left) in East Field—out of season—the third occurrence this year along the same line-of-sight. Just like the Java crop circles in January and the Mexican crop circles at spring equinox, they highlighted the farming community’s care for wildlife, reverting to cultivation by traditional natural methods of nurturing the earth—no huge machinery—just a strip of carefully-planted food.

Famous East Field formation, double-bladed axe, vesica piscis dimensional formation of July 2010. Surrounding archaic script has yet to be interpreted

East Field is in croppie language a byword for the **hub**. The first of the nouvelle vague circles appeared here in the 1990s. Here is where light orbs are sighted most frequently, electrical equipment fails, ultrasound shrieks, the water table suddenly goes dry, and people experience spontaneous healing.

East Field, like Etchilhampton, is run by the good guys: farmers who add a little extra for wildlife. In Kiesha’s terminology, the Earth Mother is speaking in dulcet tones, approving where we show care for her; in McKenna-ese, the Other is stepping through the time fabric and leaving us his/her calling card. Either way, crop circles of 2011 have highlighted farms where earth nurture has taken precedence over earth rape. Perhaps we are beginning to please the Mother, after all.

We have to make a start somewhere. The youth in Wall Street, London, other cities of the world, have shown their card. We countrydwellers have to show our hand, too. We can plant our gardens, show respect and gratitude for our food, decline to shop for unnurtured sources of supply. Take care of the soil and the water. Go off the grid. If the OWS youth can show us the way, lend us their strong bodies, we oldies can stand on their shoulders and reach for the sky.

The Universe is, after all stretching down her hand to help us up.

Vesica Piscis: Mother Earth and the Creative Force

August 7, 2011

Waylands Smithy Vesica Piscis crop circle, August 4th, 2011 -- sacred geometric co-radial circles where circumference of each shares the center of the other -- its central axis symbolizing the Cosmic Birth Canal to which, according to the Maya, all life returns in December 2012

The symbol of an ovoid –an egg– expresses the the primordial form of everything manifest, from atom to globe, from man to angel. The spheroid is with all nations the emblem of eternity and infinity —- a serpent swallowing its own tail. To realize the meaning, however, the sphere must be thought of as seen from its centre
Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, The Secret Doctrine

The Vesica Piscis in sacred tradition — from Kabbalist to Vedic to Zen — is considered to represent the female organ of creation. Its circular shape invokes an intertwining of feminine energies, Mother Earth’s womb, a mingling of Nature and primeval cultural reverence: it is a symbol seen in all ancient graphical traditions, from pagan Sun Wheel, Celtic cross, architectural ‘golden mean‘ to sacred windows in cathedrals, mosques, tabernacles and pagodas.

The Vesica Piscis also represented to the Maya the summer and winter solstices in any time cycle. To them the Vesica Piscis shape held the Cycle of the Ages — the Precession of the Equinoxes, less of a calculation of Time; more as a symbol of evolution of consciousness. We are experiencing this change now as we move from one World Age (Christian Age of Pisces, 0BC-AD2000) to another (‘New Age’ of Aquarius).

Its Latin meaning, lit. bladder of the fish, may seem to lessen its sacred quality to the prosaic, but it remains connected in a bodily way and in the geometric sense in all cultures — East and West.

Antediluvian Meaning
In earliest traditions, the supreme being was represented by a sphere, the symbol of a Creator with no beginning and no end, continually existing, perfectly formed and profoundly symmetrical. The addition of a second sphere represented the expansion of unity into the duality of female and male. By overlapping, both spheres — goddess and god — created a divine offspring. The Vesica Piscis with its derivatives, the Flower of Life, Tree of Life, and fundamentals of geometry, has a history of thousands of years, easily predating all major religions of the current era.

A theme running through several recent crop circle seasons — most striking from 2007 on — has been the suggestion by the ‘Circlemakers’ that we return to the wisdom of our roots: roots in our native Earth, roots of our tradition, our sacred beginnings. Since it is presently clear to almost anyone in the Western World that in pursuing our headlong drive for power, riches and exploitation over balance, human warmth and respect for the earth, we have gone seriously awry. It might seem that our combined consciousness — that deep level of awareness we share beneath the cultural façade; what Terence McKenna called Humanity’s Oversoul — has chosen to ‘wake us up’ by bringing us (those genuine electromagnetically-produced) crop circles each year, to educate us and lead us gently towards a more loving future.

Perhaps, therefore, we should not be surprised by the ingenuity and wry sense of humor of the Circlemakers.

For instance, this year in May — while we were all looking forward rather than looking at the miracles of the season — a quiet little ring appeared in green barley at East Kennet. It lay within one field’s breadth (roughly 10 acres) of one of Wiltshire’s most ancient shrines — the Neolithic tomb (long barrow) of West Kennet. Several 5,000-year old monuments lie — inter-visible — in this densely-built Neolithic landscape within two miles of Avebury’s Great Stone Circles.

Stonehenge and its magical meridian (51ºN) aside, the modern British are not particularly drawn to ancient shrines for their sacred quality, but crop circles — appearing within the same landscape and overlying the same limestone aquifer that produces measurable electromagnetic resonance (likened to human meditational alpha waves) — have been drawing them in. Nobody who has spent time in a pristine formation can deny it holds an ‘atmosphere’, an energy which can be uplifting, almost surreal. There is a growing body of evidence that crop circles are indeed produced through the medium of light and sound.

When the East Kennet circle first appeared, Stuart Dike, one of the long-time stalwarts of CropCircleConnector, crop circle ‘bible’, said at the time:

East Kennet crop design, May 17th, was ringed by extra circles June 22. If seen as the 'negative', it acquired a mirror-image 'positive' at West Kennet, July 25th 2011,
photo Olivier Morel

It certainly takes me back to over twenty years ago, from the 1990 days in Wiltshire. This is what we were all used to seeing back then, very simple designs, with a sense of excitement of what they could become. It’s a great indication that the earlier designs are very much part of what’s occurring today: the precursor of what was to be an evolutionary road in geometry and complexity. Perhaps the phenomenon is telling us not to ignore the purity of what was occurring at the very beginning.

Little did we know that the Circlemakers had further plans for that small field. One month later, during excitement of solstice and a profusion of appearances (2 at Stonehenge + 4 more in the vicinity over a 2-day period), nobody seemed to notice that East Kennet had acquired three concentric rings (June 22).

Then exactly a month after that, on July 22, attention focused on the intricate and superb ‘spider-web’ headdress formation which appeared in an adjoining field (East Kennet-2). There followed in quick succession two exceptionally graphic ‘suggestive’ crop designs at Roundway (1 & 2, July 23 & 25) –appearing to advocate humanity’s opening its third eye, releasing the body’s natural happiness hormone, melatonin— so, once again a little mirror appearance the same day — at West Kennet Long Barrow itself this time, next to the passage grave — seemed less than significant.

Working behind the scenes are a multitude of local altruistic researchers (CCC, above, is one of many). Their common bond is that they believe that ‘genuine’ crop circles are phenomena somehow produced through an electromagnetic or dimensional medium, either by light, sound or other variants within that vast spectrum. Sometimes, when local conditions are just right, a substance colloquially known as ‘angel hair’ (documented as being found after UFO sightings) has been deposited and can be measured, if collected within the first few hours after a formation has been laid down. Researchers in this field include the Massachusetts-based BLT, the British Harmony Blue group, and the CircularSite in the Netherlands,. They are consequently disappointed and nonplussed by world media efforts to persevere in ‘replicating’ crop circles, as has been tried on several occasions. Research on the dimensional/spiritual nature of real crop circles continues. On the morning the West Kennet circle motif appeared, the HarmonyBlue team found angel hair in the West Kennet formation (‘spiderweb’ photo, above).

There is even the suggestion — by the much more charismatic ‘spider-web’ crop appearance at East Kennet on July 22 — that the Circlemakers were telling them where to look!

Sacred geometry

The Vesica Piscis is the root principle in sacred geometry, interlocking circles which share radii, cosmically and intrinsically entwined. In precise mathematical measurement, where the circumference of each shares the center of the other, the ratio between the width of the vesica piscis to its height is the square root of 3, or approximately 1.7320508…

A mathematical sub-note: if straight lines are drawn between the centers of both circles with each other and with the two points where their circumferences intersect, two equilateral triangles can be formed, joining along an edge.

Eye of consciousness, complete with eyelashes! Crop circle at Silbury Hill, Avebury August 2, 2011

Archimedes of Syracuse, 287-212BC, Greek mathematician, physicist, engineer, inventor and astronomer, in his On the Measurement of the Circle, used these ratios:

In Christian tradition this sacred number –153– appears miraculously in the Gospel of John [21:11] as the number of fishes which Jesus of Nazareth caused to be manifested in the Feeding of the Multitude story. Since all Judaic written (Biblical) tradition centered on sacred number, numerological sequence and coded word combinations/number of letters used, this coincidence has a deeper meaning. The Fish — Lat. Piscis — is well-known as the secret symbol used by the Early Christians in Rome. By enumerating the total catch on the Sea of Gallilee, specific use of that sacred geometric ratio would have had meaning to early followers, aware of the significance of number.

Interlocking circles, Water & the Sacred Feminine: Vesica Piscis's sacred shape which seals the cover of the Sacred Chalice Well at Glastonbury, Somerset


Probably the best known example in England of the Vesica Piscis is the design on the wellcover of the Sacred Chalice Well at Glastonbury. While we are now culturally ignorant of number, this design resonates with us on a subliminal level (internal balance) and, seen there in a New Age context, represents the Universal symbol of the Feminine, Mother Earth, in contrast with the nearby masculine emblem of Glastonbury Tor. The Glastonbury example on the lid of the Chalice well — like the crop circle at Wayland’s Smithy (top) — contains the meridian line that runs through the centers of both circles.

Even though this archaic symbolism may not seem relevant to some after so many aeons of time, it is not unrealistic to suppose that our cultural unconscious, even blurred and insensitized by modern inconsequential minutiae in massive overdose, does at some deep level sense peace, harmony and beauty when we behold this sacred design.


Egyptian Celestial and Sacred Measure

We owe the Egyptians for the application of Sacred Geometry on the surface of the Earth.

Cosmic serpent-of-Life returning to its birth canal at the center of the Galaxy in 2012 -- West Woodhay Down, Inkpen crop circle July 29th, arrived as a prelude to the August 4th glyph (top), the Cosmic birth canal itself

Geo-metry means ‘measure of the earth’. In ancient Egypt, from which Greece and eventually the West inherited the study, the Nile would flood its banks each year, obliterating orderly demarcation of plot and farm areas. This annual inundation symbolized to the Egyptian the cyclic return of primal watery chaos, and when the waters receded the work began of redefining and re-establishing boundaries. The temple astronomer might announce that celestial configurations had changed so the orientation or location of a temple had to be adjusted. It was seen as regaining law and order, dominion over the earth. The laying of squares upon the earth had, for the Egyptian, a metaphysical as well as a physical and social dimension. This activity of measuring the earth – ‘geo-meter’- became the basis for a science of natural law embodied in the archetypal forms of circle, triangle and square.

Plato at his Academia required the study of mathematics as a prerequisite for philosophia, a term signifying “the love of wisdom” and “to lift the soul to truth.” To him, symbolic mathematics provided a map of our own inner psychological and sacred spiritual structure. Through the study of recurring harmonious patterns inherent in mathematics, music, and nature, ancient mathematical philosophers recognized that consistent correspondences occur inside the human mind and simultaneously throughout the universe.

Sacred geometric shapes: circle, triangle, square

This Zen calligraphic drawing shows Creation through the simple progression from the unity of the circle, through the triangle, to the manifest form of the square.

The circle –one– and the vesica piscis –two– were considered by ancient mathematical philosophers to be the parents of Number. Their firstborn, the triangle –three– was the ‘first’ and eldest number. Its geometric expression, the equilateral triangle, is the initial shape to emerge through the portal of the vesica piscis, the First of the Many. The square –four– was the second born.

Alpha and Omega
Mathematics and sacred geometry can take us beyond our ordinary limits to cosmic depths.

Furze or Morgan Hill, Bishops Cannings, August 6th dimensional progression on the Vesica Piscis: two cosmic parents produce a dimensional child

Man –from the Sanskrit root manas, meaning ‘Mind’, Consciousness, is a creature who can reflect upon himself. Man is not a mere constituent part –a cog– in this Universal Cycle, but he is both the final complete product of evolution and the original seed potential out of which the Universe germinated. The Alpha as well as the Omega. Both the seed and the tree: the tree of the universe is the actualization of the seed potential, which is Cosmic Man.

The World Tree of the Maya now begins to make sense. Mayan cosmology saw the Rift in the Milky Way as the the female birth canal (Yoni, Vesica Piscis) to which the Serpent of Life returns in December 2012.

Spiraling towards Source

CCC denizen Dike may have had a premonition when he said (above) that ‘the (CC) phenomenon is telling us not to ignore the purity of what was occurring at the very beginning’. Without realizing it, he may have been referring to the very beginning of Time. As we spiral onwards through the Galaxy towards our 2012 rendezvous with that primeval birth canal, we are indeed completing a cycle, coming to our ending, but also returning to our beginning.

Battlestar E.L.E.: Extinction or Elevation Event?

June 24, 2011

Human 'cosmophobia' given expression in disaster movies

SciFi epics are all the rage these days. Television and the internet regularly screen such marvels of CGI (computer-generated imaging) as the amazing 1950s classic, ‘The Day The Earth Stood Still’ rereleased 2008, and Dennis Quaid’s (2004) ‘Day After Tomorrow’. What they have in common are scenes of human extinction, the battle for Earth against cosmic forces; an unprepared planet at the mercy of the Final Frontier. Even more heroic — human ingenuity in the face of impending disaster — were earlier blockbusters like the classic (1972) Bruce Dern ‘Silent Running’, Roland Emmerich’s (director of Day After Tomorrow) Independence Day (1996) and the Bruce Willis spacetale, Armageddon, 1998, the latter depicting incoming deep space objects of massive proportions. Independence Day served to insert the acronym ELE (extinction-level event) into popular idiom. Conflated by huge world interest in the zero hour of cultural calendar systems in December 2012, the human imagination soars.

Comet Elenin: incoming at the edge of Mars orbit, but still invisible to backyard Earth telescopes

So it is into this fertile ground that the UFOlogist media and internet doom-blogs plant scary stories about incoming celestial objects: for instance, the current preoccupation with:
comet C/2010 X1 Elenin (discovered 10-12-10)
comet C/2011 L3 McNaught (his 68th discovery)
and stray wanderers from the asteroid belt, between Mars and Jupiter. There is even an acronym for them: PHAs: potentially-hazardous asteroids.

It is true, comet Elenin, discovered December 10 2010 by Russian astrometrist Leonid Elenin, appeared to take American space-sweeping probes by surprise; the Russian announcement prompted the backdated release of a document detailing NASA’s preparations for (potentially) destructive deep-space objects in near-earth orbit (NEO), seen in the Letter from the White House last October, supposedly before Elenin was discovered by the Russian astronomer. However the Obama Administration’s budget request for NASA for 2011 called for near-quadrupling of the 2010 budget for NEO-surveillance from $5.8million to $20.3million. So it is likely there was already knowledge ‘within the system’ of an impending threat.

Cosmophobia
Not all the Elenin-hype is ballistic. Some respected names gathered in Honolulu mid-June, to discuss the significance of Elenin’s earth-grazing orbit later this year on September 11 (10th anniversary of 9/11) and October 28 — coinciding with the end-date of the Mayan calendar (Carl Calleman version). The Camelot Roundtable Elenin video Conference, June 24th, was hosted by Kerry Cassidy, featuring Richard Hoagland, Dr Joseph Farrell, Keith Hunter, Dr Carl Johan Calleman, and Andy Lloyd.

Earth alone against the Cosmos

“We live in nervous times, and conspiracy theories and predictions of disaster are more popular than ever. I like to use the word cosmophobia for this growing fear of astronomical objects and phenomena, which periodically runs amok on the Internet. Ironically, in pre-scientific times, comets were often thought to be harbingers of disaster, mostly because they seemed to arrive unpredictably -– unlike the movements of the planets and stars, which could be tracked on a daily and yearly basis.”
David Morrison, planetary astronomer and senior scientist at NASA’s Ames Research Center

End-Times Scenario
There are several versions of the Elenin story on the internet, not least that of the believers in its causing a pole reversal or blackout of the sun. However, astronomical observation has thus far estimated Elenin’s mass to be not larger than recent historical comets.

Elenin emergency window: preparing for underground living in the Ozarks

“The bottom line is this: Comet C/2010 X1 Elenin is coming, and it will pass by Earth at an extremely safe distance -– 100 times the distance from Earth to the Moon. It will not be changing direction between now and then, it will not exert any gravitational effect on Earth, its magnetic field is nonexistent and there are no Star Destroyers cruising in its wake. The biggest effect it will have on Earth is what we are able to learn about it as it passes –- after all, it is a visitor from the far reaches of our solar system and we won’t be seeing it again for a very, very long time.”
Jason Major, The UniverseToday

It is curious, therefore, that NASA’s WISE telescope, the Wide-field Infrared survey Explorer (launched December 2009) had its NEO-scanning/sky mapping telescope ‘shut down’ in February 2011, after only a year in orbit. NASA/JPL announced it would be in ‘hibernation until needed’.

Might one suggest that NASA is not giving the full story? After all even we, hoi polloi, the uninitiated masses, know that solar eruptions and increasingly frequent coronal mass ejections (CMEs) have a trigger effect on communications, both on the electromagnetic field of terrestrial networks and satellites in orbit.

Meanwhile, back at the Ranch…where were all the crop circles? Why weren’t they signaling their annual messages in code?

The Late Crop Circle season of 2011

Britain — in particular, Wessex and the southwest — had a remarkably dry spring; April was the hottest on record; grain in wheatfields was not swelling for lack of rain, the ground was cracking: a phenomenon usually restricted to northern European farming communities in France and Spain. May turned wet and cool: a little late to quench parched soil or fill shrunken seedheads. English field crops were looking a little like north African desert-paddies. There were more inspiring crop circles in Italy than in Oxfordshire.

The farming community in England was on the point of raising a cheer because so very few (11 total) circles of intricate design had appeared in Wiltshire and Hampshire during April and May. Perhaps they might survive a whole season from planting until harvest, without their crops being trampled upon by sightseers…

And then, just as the longest day – solstice/June 21st – approached, things started hotting up. Two meaningful designs –seen to be astronomically connected– showed up on June 18th: one at Louth in Lincolnshire near the Humber estuary (rather far away from the usual Wiltshire hub), sporting a telescopic lens with three crescent moons; and the other at Kings Somborne, Hampshire — avidly pounced on and analyzed by the croppie community for its clear depiction of the inner solar system — but showing a couple of ‘intruders’. Two nights later, four more materialized out of the corn overnight on solstice itself. These were, as expected, back in the Wiltshire heartland. Croppies breathed a sigh of relief.

The great trilithons of Stonehenge are renowned for being inaccessibile most of the year, but the bronze age astronomical stone clock is famously opened to the public and special interest groups for their celebration of the rising sun over the heel stone at dawn on summer solstice. So it was fortuitous that two of the four crop circles appearing on June 20/21 (at Winterbourne Stoke, near Stonehenge) –seemed to arrive just in time for that human solstitial ritual.

While the Stonehenge formations at Winterbourne Stoke were interesting, it was the earlier motifs of the inner solar system and lunar symbolism which caught the attention of the analysts. Some interpeters have suggested increasing earth tremors in a longterm timeframe (including dates extending through 2012-13-14).There has been a rash of speculation on Facebook. In the scientific domain, veteran crop circle detective-mathwiz-numerologist Red Collie –Dr. Horace R. Drew– was quick to come up with an astro scenario for the ‘inner solar system’ Cow Drove Hill formation at Kings Somborne, using NASA/JPL’s near-earth object imaging program, reproduced as a single image here for June 26th, 2011; courtesy CropCircleConnector and NASA/JPL. Collie feels something is imminent this weekend: in the solstitial period between June 24-27, 2011.

He likens the diagram to the 2009 astrolabe crop circle formed in three phases at Milk Hill below the White Horse at Alton Barnes…

‘…an astronomical event predicted at Milk Hill in June 2009, where some “mystery object” was supposed to suddenly brighten not far from the orbit and location of Mars in June of 2011, after a five-planet alignment in early June’
Dr Horace Drew — ‘Red Collie’

There was indeed a five-planet alignment in our dawn skies in the month of May and early June. And comets Elenin and McNaught are headed our way. Elenin is presently clearing the outer perimeter of Mars’ orbit. Intruder number one.

By his reckoning, [with the help of NASA’s NEO generation], the solar system orbits and the inner planets’ positions indicated in the crop circle plot to planetary positions ranging between the dates of June 21-27, 2011. Collie also suggested that the contemporary crop appearance in Lincolnshire with its three crescent moons “and a spiral symbol, suggesting perhaps three days later on June 21”.

I tend rather to believe that, as earth-wisdom and ancient belief systems were accustomed to likening ‘moons’ to months, the Humber estuary formation at Louth is more likely to be directing our attention (through the ‘scope) to three months’ hence: to a time in late September 2011 when, according to the JPL graphic prediction, above, comet Elenin will be nearing its closest approach to Earth orbit i.e. on its outward journey to deep space, it will graze our planetary path within 0.2AU of Earth, at just under 2million miles away (or 1,860,000 miles) along our path round the sun, just before we fly through the debris of its retreating tail. While, according to NASA scientists, quoted, the comet’s tail may not produce fireworks, it might very well affect our weather systems. So far Spaceweather has had very little to say about that. Again, we shall have to wait and see.

Others have seen yesterday’s earthquake in Japan as a sign of confirmation. [The June 23rd tremor was a Richter 6.7 and no loss of life was reported]. In realtime, sunspot 1236 erupted on June 21st, ejecting a CME earthwards, expected June 24th. Both NOAA and SpaceWeather predict geomagnetic storms. The BBC is forecasting a heatwave for England and Wales!

Part of the ‘intruder’ conundrum may be resolved in a last-minute ‘surprise discovery’ by NASA for Monday next week:

ASTEROID FLYBY: Newly-discovered asteroid 2011MD will pass only 12,000 kilometers (7,500 miles) above Earth’s surface on Monday, June 27th.

NASA analysts say there is no chance the space rock will strike Earth. Nevertheless, the encounter is so close that Earth’s gravity will sharply perturb the asteroid’s trajectory Spaceweather

Intruder number two.

We may indeed be in for a rough spell of spaceweather, and given that ‘Earth’s gravity will sharply perturb the asteroid’s trajectory’ — that’s another way of saying it might very well come closer than they think. Besides, our Moon coasts round us at a mean distance of 239,000 miles. Asteroid ‘Doc'[2011MD] will graze us inside moon orbit 32 times closer than the moon herself. Even without earth’s gravitational pull, it means the asteroid will pass within two earth atmospheres of Earth (the thermosphere, highest of earth’s atmospheric layers, reaches to a depth of 6,000km from earth. The asteroid will ‘fly-by’ at 12,000km). That’s pretty close. Spaceweather forecasters must have thought that, too, as their announcement describes its passage as ‘above’ us, rather than the usual astronomical (impersonal) ‘passage by’ us.

Westwoods Maltese Cross with deer-heads/vesica piscis: June 21st crop motif, suggesting peaceful intent and awareness of the sacred, will see us through

We on the surface are, however, becoming more aware as a planetary community and throughout the last few months of terrestrial storms and seismic upheaval, have gained experience as a human family to pull together both physically (with world aid agencies helping the stricken) and psychically (through a process of planetary unification, meditation, or Unity Consciousness) and we have seen how the consciousness of belief/oneness can mediate some of the worse-case scenarios. Consciousness-raising networks are even suggesting using crop circle motifs as a meditation focus. So, amidst human turmoil, there is yet hope.


Several interpretations have appeared on the internet and YouTube, but this video by Joan Wheaton gives an excellent insight into this solstitial message from the Light/orbs.
Thank you, Joan-ShumNYabai.

The battle for Earth is not precisely the best metaphor: a metaphorical concept of peace is better than one of war. And we are learning to appreciate and care for our fragile eco-world in the nick of time, because –unless we want to live underground on the Moon or in Silent Running-like bubbles on Mars — it’s the only one we’ve got. Let us pray that our Collective Consciousness — Humanity’s Oversoul — epitomized by our wonderful crop circle shorthand, is still aiming for our Highest Good.
