Journal’s Paper on ESP Expected to Prompt Outrage
By BENEDICT CAREY <
One of psychology’s most respected journals has agreed to publish a paper presenting what its author describes as strong evidence for extrasensory perception, the ability to sense future events.
The decision may delight believers in so-called paranormal events, but it is already mortifying scientists. Advance copies of the paper http://dbem.ws/FeelingFuture.pdf , to be published this year in The Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, have circulated widely among psychological researchers in recent weeks and have generated a mixture of amusement and scorn.
The paper describes nine unusual lab experiments performed over the past decade by its author, Daryl J. Bem <http://dbem.ws/> , an emeritus professor at Cornell, testing the ability of college students to accurately sense random events, like whether a computer program will flash a photograph on the left or right side of its screen. The studies include more than 1,000 subjects.
Some scientists say the report deserves to be published, in the name of open inquiry; others insist that its acceptance only accentuates fundamental flaws in the evaluation and peer review of research in the social sciences.
“It’s craziness, pure craziness. I can’t believe a major journal is allowing this work in,” Ray Hyman, an emeritus professor of psychology at the University Oregon and longtime critic of ESP research, said. “I think it’s just an embarrassment for the entire field.”
The editor of the journal, Charles Judd, a psychologist at the University of Colorado <http://topics.nytimes.com/top/reference/timestopics/organizations/u/university_of_colorado/index.html?inline=nyt-org> , said the paper went through the journal’s regular review process. “Four reviewers made comments on the manuscript,” he said, “and these are very trusted people.”
All four decided that the paper met the journal’s editorial standards, Dr. Judd added, even though “there was no mechanism by which we could understand the results.”
But many experts say that is precisely the problem. Claims that defy almost every law of science are by definition extraordinary and thus require extraordinary evidence. Neglecting to take this into account — as conventional social science analyses do — makes many findings look far more significant than they really are, these experts say.
“Several top journals publish results only when these appear to support a hypothesis that is counterintuitive or attention-grabbing,” Eric-Jan Wagenmakers, a psychologist at the University of Amsterdam, wrote by e-mail. “But such a hypothesis probably constitutes an extraordinary claim, and it should undergo more scrutiny before it is allowed to enter the field.”
Dr. Wagenmakers is co-author of a rebuttal <http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1018886/Bem6.pdf> to the ESP paper that is scheduled to appear in the same issue of the journal.
In an interview, Dr. Bem, the author of the original paper and one of the most prominent research psychologists of his generation, said he intended each experiment to mimic a well-known classic study, “only time-reversed.”
In one classic memory experiment, for example, participants study 48 words and then divide a subset of 24 of them into categories, like food or animal. The act of categorizing reinforces memory, and on subsequent tests people are more likely to remember the words they practiced than those they did not.
In his version, Dr. Bem gave 100 college students a memory test before they did the categorizing — and found they were significantly more likely to remember words that they practiced later. “The results show that practicing a set of words after the recall test does, in fact, reach back in time to facilitate the recall of those words,” the paper concludes.
In another experiment, Dr. Bem had subjects choose which of two curtains on a computer screen hid a photograph; the other curtain hid nothing but a blank screen.
A software program randomly posted a picture behind one curtain or the other — but only after the participant made a choice. Still, the participants beat chance, by 53 percent to 50 percent, at least when the photos being posted were erotic ones. They did not do better than chance on negative or neutral photos.
“What I showed was that unselected subjects could sense the erotic photos,” Dr. Bem said, “but my guess is that if you use more talented people, who are better at this, they could find any of the photos.”
In recent weeks science bloggers, researchers and assorted skeptics have challenged Dr. Bem’s methods and his statistics, with many critiques digging deep into the arcane but important fine points of crunching numbers. (Others question his intentions. “He’s got a great sense of humor,” said Dr. Hyman, of Oregon. “I wouldn’t rule out that this is an elaborate joke.”)
Dr. Bem has generally responded in kind, sometimes accusing critics of misunderstanding his paper, others times of building a strong bias into their own re-evaluations of his data.
In one sense, it is a historically familiar pattern. For more than a century, researchers have conducted hundreds of tests to detect ESP, telekinesis and other such things, and when such studies have surfaced, skeptics have been quick to shoot holes in them.
But in another way, Dr. Bem is far from typical. He is widely respected for his clear, original thinking in social psychology, and some people familiar with the case say his reputation may have played a role in the paper’s acceptance.
Peer review is usually an anonymous process, with authors and reviewers unknown to one another. But all four reviewers of this paper were social psychologists, and all would have known whose work they were checking and would have been responsive to the way it was reasoned.
Perhaps more important, none were topflight statisticians. “The problem was that this paper was treated like any other,” said an editor at the journal, Laura King, a psychologist at the University of Missouri <http://topics.nytimes.com/top/reference/timestopics/organizations/u/university_of_missouri/index.html?inline=nyt-org> . “And it wasn’t.”
Many statisticians say that conventional social-science techniques for analyzing data make an assumption that is disingenuous and ultimately self-deceiving: that researchers know nothing about the probability of the so-called null hypothesis.
In this case, the null hypothesis would be that ESP does not exist. Refusing to give that hypothesis weight makes no sense, these experts say; if ESP exists, why aren’t people getting rich by reliably predicting the movement of the stock market or the outcome of football games?
Instead, these statisticians prefer a technique called Bayesian analysis, which seeks to determine whether the outcome of a particular experiment “changes the odds that a hypothesis is true,” in the words of Jeffrey N. Rouder, a psychologist at the University of Missouri who, with Richard D. Morey of the University of Groningen in the Netherlands, has also submitted a critique http://pcl.missouri.edu/sites/default/files/rouder-morey.pdf of Dr. Bem’s paper to the journal.
Physics and biology, among other disciplines, overwhelmingly suggest that Dr. Bem’s experiments have not changed those odds, Dr. Rouder said.
So far, at least three efforts to replicate the experiments have failed. But more are in the works, Dr. Bem said, adding, “I have received hundreds of requests for the materials” to conduct studies.

We would like to begin this transmission
with the following brief ideas,
to lay a little bit of what you call
a foundation or a groundwork
for the primary principles that will generally be contained
in almost every subject we will discuss.
Many of you have heard us talk about certain tools,
certain states of being,... certain states of mind
that will allow you to understand who and what you are
as a person... as a being... as a personality,
a little bit more clearly.
For it is in understanding the structure
and the nature of yourself as a person and as a being
that will allow you to make changes...
make shifts in your reality in the manner that you desire...
in the manner that you prefer... more effortlessly...
with the idea of less pain and more joy.
These ideas now are paramount
for what you call the "Age of Transition",
this "Age of Awareness" on your planet,
as you have named it,
and thus we are very happy to help to assist
in presenting concepts and tools that are handy,
that you can use very easily,
so that when applying them you can see the results
in yourselves and in your physical reality...
The idea first and foremost, of course,
always begins with self valuation.
We understand from our experience with many of you
that one of the most difficult things
that many of you now have to do on your planet...
is learn to value yourself.
Because you have forgotten your connection with the Infinite,
and because for thousands upon thousands of your years,
you have been taught to think of yourselves
as less than worthy... as undeserving...
as possessing little or no value...
and without an understanding of your worth,
without an understanding of your value,
no tool we would share with you would really be effective.
Only when you begin to learn... and behave... and hold true
that you are a worthwhile aspect of the Infinite,
that you are a beautiful... and unconditionally loved...
and supported aspect of Creation...
and hold yourself in the same value
that the Creation holds you in,
only really then will the tools be effective
in the strongest way possible.
It only makes sense, for the tools will only be
as strong and as powerful as the energy you give them,
because the energy comes from you... through you...
therefore you are the one that determines
the efficacy of the tool.
They do not really have the ability
to work of and by themselves
because they draw their energy from you--
they draw their realization capability from you.
So let us briefly lay down
a little bit of an outline of these ideas
so that we will have an understanding
and will have something to refer back to
as a base point... a base line.
First and foremost as we have said... self valuation.
From there comes the understanding
of what it means to be a personality structure.
A personality structure,
very briefly in recap for some of you,
in newness for others,
is based on three principles.
Your personality is an artificial construct...
it doesn't mean it isn't natural,
but it is a type of mask that is built...
or created... or fabricated from three ideas:
belief systems... emotions... and behavior.
You can understand the analogy of belief systems
being like the blueprints of a building.
The emotions are the builders--
the activation principles and energies
that get the building built,
and the behavior is the building material...
the thoughts and actions that you do.
So, you can instantly understand
that the nature of the blueprint...
the clarity of the design
will determine the ultimate product...
that the nature of the builders
will determine the quality of the product...
and that the nature of the building material
will determine the quality of the final building.
When those three things are in alignment,
you can understand that your reality will reflect
the idea of a strong structure... a strong reality...
that is stable in that way.
But if either your belief blueprint...
your emotional builder...
or your behavior building material
are somehow lacking or out of balance
in the idea of self worth and self valuation,
and are not aligned
with the other sides of the three sided prism,
then of course it would be obvious
that your building would be,
as you say in your language, a little bit wonky.
So, this whole idea is to help clarify
what those three components are really all about
and how to maintain them and bring them back into balance.
Now also it takes an understanding
that physical reality is really just a mirror
and it can only reflect what you put out.
There are really only Four Laws in Creation
that allow you to experience everything that you experience:
Law #1 is that You Exist.
Can't do much about that.
Now, when we talk first of all about laws,
we are not talking about the type of laws
that you have on your planet
that are in that sense,
arbitrary rules and regulations
that can be broken... or changed...
or rewritten... or ignored.
But the idea is even beyond
what many of you call laws of physics,
because even some of these
are only germane to your particular universal reality
and in other dimensions many of the so-called laws
that you have labeled do not really apply.
We are talking about real laws,
because real laws cannot be broken...
it is impossible.
And it is these four laws that give structure
to all of Creation.
So, as we have said...
Law #1 is that "you exist".
What that actually means
when taken out to its ultimate, logical understanding
is that if you exist now...
you always will and you always have.
Therefore you may change form
but you will always exist in some way, shape, or form,
is the only quality that existence has.
It does not know how to become non-existence.
Non-existence is already full
of all the things that will never exist
and there is no room in non-existence
for that that does exist.
That which exists only has one quality... to be,
and thus that is the only thing it will always be.
So, if you do exist... you always will...
Law #2: "The One is the All, and the All are the One."
This simply means that all of the pieces
together form "The One"...
and that "The One" is the one
that knows Itself, simultaneously,
as all the pieces... and as "The One".
What this means is
that Creation is not separate from the Creator,
but is made of the Creator
and that there is no outside to it,
everything that is...
every discrete person... place... thing...
every discrete concept...
every discrete part is a part of the one same whole.
And also holographically,
every single part is the whole
expressing itself as a part of the whole.
So the second law is "the One is All and the All are One".
Law #3: "What you put out is what you get back."
The energy you give off based on your beliefs...
your emotions... your behavior...
the vibrational frequency you give off
is what determines the kind of reality experience you have...
because physical reality doesn't exist
except as a reflection
of what you most strongly believe is true for you.
That is all that physical reality is.
It is literally like a mirror.
If you are looking in a mirror
and you see your face with a frown on it
you know that you don't go over to the mirror
and try to force the reflection to smile.
You know that if you want to see the reflection smile...
you must smile first.
There is no way to change the reflection
without you smiling first,
but you can also conversely understand
that when you decide to smile...
the reflection has no choice but to return the smile,
because it doesn't have a mind of its own.
So the idea to understand
is that physical reality
very much is really like a mirror;
it will not change until you do first,
but if you do...
it has no choice but to follow suit
because it is only a reflection
of what you have put out.
Law #4: "Change is the only constant,
and everything changes except the first three laws."
That's it--one, two, three, four--that's it!
Every experience you have ever had...
are having now...
or will ever have...
is based on a combination
of these four laws
to varying degrees...
The idea to understand
is that when you allow yourself to make choices,
then your choices are based on your motivation
and your motivation is based on your definitions.
This is the other way to explain the three-part process.
Your behavior... your choices...
are based on your motivations.
Your motivations are based on your emotions
which stem from your definitions... which are your beliefs.
So anytime you are making a choice
it is always because you have been motivated
to make that choice.
Motivation only has two parts to it,
this is all there is to motivation.
You will always, in every single case,
you will always choose what you perceive to be
the choice that is closest to pleasure and furthest from pain.
That's it, that is your entire motivational force!
But notice I said you will choose what you perceive
to be closest to pleasure and furthest from pain
and that's where definitions come in...
because only as you define
what you believe to be pleasurable or painful
will you then be motivated to make choices
in accordance with that belief.
So, many times you may choose things
that on one level seem to be
detrimental... or destructive to you,
but if you keep choosing it that simply means
that you must have a definition in your belief system,
that says that regardless of how painful it is
to keep choosing that,
you are somehow defining it as being
less painful than making any other choice.
That's why it is so powerful to get in touch
with what your belief systems are...
because when you find out why
you may be defining something as pleasurable or painful
and you change the definition,
you will instantly change your motivation
and you will instantly change the choices that you make.
You are all motivated people,
none of you lack motivation...
none of you lack trust.
It's just a matter of where you are placing your trust
and what definitions you are motivated to act upon.
That's all there is to it.
This is how you simplify the things in your life...
by understanding them from the base on up.
From definition... through motivation... to choice.
From belief... through emotion... to behavior.
That's all there is to it... really.
The final thing that we will be including in this "tool kit",
is the idea that we have begun to talk about recently,
that is above and beyond the idea of belief...
and that is simple knowingness...
which comes from the idea of surrender... letting go.
Again, we understand that in many of the definitions
many of you have on your planet
regarding this word "surrender"
many of you will label this as a loss of some sort
or a lack of control of some sort...
and this is not the case.
if we may provide our definition,
is the letting go of the concept
of who you think you're supposed to be
and actually being who you are
because who you are is unlimited possibilities.
When you allow yourself to surrender
to the idea and the experience
that you are created in the image of the Infinite...
which means you are infinite possibilities...
then the physical reality which is only a mirror
can then reflect those unlimited possibilities
back to you... in the sychronicities
as they naturally unfold
in your physical day-to-day life.
Surrender is actually the acceptance of your total self.
It is not in that sense the forsaking of your total self
as many of you have been led to believe
through the definitions that your world has provided you with.
Definitions such as those only serve to limit you.
And this is what we want to share with you
and what we suggest you learn to give up... those limitations.
So that is really what we are going to be discussing
in all of these interactions,
variations of these principles,
it will usually all come down to that idea.
And of course it will usually always come down
to another principle that is all wrapped up in this
and that has to do with being your natural true self,
which in many cases is simply another way of saying
"Follow your joy".
Follow your excitement to the best of your ability
because the sensation that you call joy,
the sensation that you call excitement,
the sensation that you call unconditional love
is the frequency of the energy that represents
your natural... true... core... original self .
So when you are acting
on circumstances and opportunities
that bring with them the highest level of joy...
the highest level of excitement...
you are saying you have the faith
to take the steps to act upon your true self
and in so doing your physical reality... the mirror...
will support you
because it has no choice but to do so.
These are the principles that comprise
the tool kit of manifestation and change
and that's really all there is to it.
You will see that almost everything we discuss
will come down in one way, shape or form
to these ideas if it has to do with your own personal growth
and the expression of who and what you are.
Once again, we thank you for the opportunity
to experience this gift of sharing with you.
Humans are witnessing a rapid awareness, an awakening, and a consciousness of
Oneness. We are in the greatest Transition ever; our DNA Makeup is an experience
of our time line. It is a conscious choice that we have decided to “Lift these Layers”
of our past energies; to be removed of the old makeup; the cloth and identity that
can no longer serve of us.
As we have moved from the 3rd dimensional world to a 5th dimensional Energy Field, we are beginning to Spiral “upward” from our original descent. From the beginning, as humans, animals and all the living descended into a matter of density, it is now through higher consciousness and lessons that we are making a choice to Ascend, to rise above, and lift us to the greater experience known as Oneness.
As millions are making this shift, the energy moves in a speed far greater than our understanding. Our Highest Consciousness agreed to let go and detach from past life energies, repetitive patterns and the old makeup through our DNA. Due to this release the human embodiment is going through MAJOR Mental, Emotional and Physical tests at this time.
The seven major chakras (centers) must now be programmed to withstand the newest elements from the Language of Light coming into us. Many of us have been preparing for this beautiful shift to occur, knowing the challenges and difficulties we will endure. There is a “mutation” process occurring that allows us to move to greater realms of existence. Although this mutation process is created for your existence in the New Beginning, we must still complete the old patterns of the past. While going through this transition from old to new, it may become overwhelming, spiritually exhausting, difficult and almost impossible at times. The magnetic “pulses” resonating are creating an influx or push spinning energy in every direction. This is why it is VITAL to create the INWARD energy at this time.
Inward energy is taking time for you, meditating the Whole being through breath, detaching the emotional stress from other’s issues or problems. We cannot stress enough,…the importance of breathing the breath of pure Light Energy into your makeup, your being, your spirit. (a good example of self commitment & awareness; you are in an airplane, there is suddenly a change in the aircraft, turbulence, emergency; the Oxygen masks drop, you have been “trained” to place the “BREATH of LIFE” on YOU first, and then assist the one next to you). You have been preparing your entire journey for this shift in energy. You Trust, you know; you are filled with pure Light and Love. You know your outcome; you will be safe, unharmed and fully protected in the arms of the Angels that fly with you. This is the time to fully be aware and conscious, for we have known of this time of change to come, and it has arrived and we will survive.
The Mind (mental) is going to go through some of the most undesired times of one’s life. Voices are speaking as never spoken before, emotions are flaring to an all time high, physical illness and dis-ease, and the purging of old being lifted. Egos are placing their control onto others far greater than ever before. Push come to shove experiences are going to occur and Jealousy will be abundant, created from the old (Ego) thinking.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION to understand:
The reason your body is going through these multiple changes,…is due to the Electromagnetic Solar Flare energy that has transmuted into our solar plexus creating an electric charge that has stimulated and empowered an “over-control” energy that is sending these energy flares throughout your system. This occurrence is a discombobulating configurement stemmed from the neurobiological (nervous system) energy makeup. The “energy” in the bloodstream is being injected with the “old” memory energy (negative karma) moving at rapid speed releasing a secretion from the glands of the Endocrine system. This “old” makeup is a housed (stored) memory in a past, present or future memory cell. As the cell is “pushed” open from the electromagnetic solar flare transmission, its dormancy is imploded, opened, extracted and convulsed throughout your system, especially the mental and emotions, thus creating the physical to respond with aches, pains, illness or other that has finally been pushed to its limits. This convulsion feels like a “Jack-Hammer” inside your entire body. This “Jack-Hammer” effect is the lifting of all old karmic layers that must be removed in order to sustain the new Illuminated makeup of the Golden Frequency. What seems to be of the most difficult of times, is actually the knowing that soon,….we will be free. Free to be in a non-judgmental frequency field from our mental (ego), emotions in an undisturbed, balance, and our physical body free from illness, dis-eases and negative karma. This WILL bring us Inner Peace, Light Language, and Oneness.
This language will bring awareness, teachings and truth. It is simply to be in tune, paying attention, and ALLOWING the embodiment to go through these changes, these mutations. By blocking, stopping, becoming frustrated, temperamental, and angry or NOT understanding will prolong the embodiment to process this natural occurrence of our newbeginning, our new makeup to sustain and maintain the vibrancy of our collectedness, our gathering, our Oneness.
The NEXT THREE months will be a continual trial of your survival. Rounding out the remaining of 2010 is a very important test of time. We bring this message to you as a Tool to help you gain access into the INFINITE symbol of Light Frequency. Please consider the following tools as a way to help you be released from the panic, pains, and lack of understanding created by this shift:
Sphere; this tool is used as an image to begin a “re-rotation” upward spiral in Ascent. The Sphere will encode and program the “emotions” of ALL that you are attached too. You have been “wired” in an old makeup to keep you in a lower frequency, held to a past or worry of a future, forgetting the Presence. The Sphere will set you free and rise above the emotional deficiency. The Sphere has no beginning and no end, its representation is completeness to old energy, old ways, mind control or behavioral thinking patterns. This Sphere will help release all that we need to of old, and to reach the realization of our own innate perfection. Disharmony is created by sharpness, edged angles and misalignment. The Sphere is optimal energy, flow and is harmonious. The body needs Harmonics to symphonize the flow of this new energy throughout your embodiment creating BALANCE.
Uploading this Frequency Sphere:
Give yourself permission to “encode” your makeup with this Sphere as a continual Alchemy of Love and Light. Upon permission, you are allowing YOURSELF to HEAL and guide you into the higher frequency and dimensions of our Eternal. This Sphere is the Code of Self Healing. This Sphere is drawn from sacred geometry and delivers the uprooting from once a spiral descent. This uprooting and trapped energy caught between the Time Lines of experience, will bring the vines of past, outstretched, entwined and mutated experiences coiled in our spines, a FULL release, cleansing and purifying wholeness, known as Tree of Life.
In a meditative, relaxed, ego free and undisturbed energy field, ask your embodiment to be surrounded by the White and Golden Light. Visualize a Green, White and Pink Centered Sphere entering your entire body. See the Sphere “weave” a re-rotation and presence of light into your Root Chakra and see it begin to spiral in an upward movement all the way to your crown chakra. This Sphere is now spiraling into your energy field, sacred geometry, keys and pyramid transmissions. This spiraling effect will produce an electromagnetic charge to lift the layers of dormant disharmonic energy, traced cell memory back to the conception into the split of the cell from the beginning, and remove negative karmic imbalances and guilt caused by conflict and confusion. As the frequency begins to spiral upward, it will encase you into the Merkaba, keeping you leveled, balanced, calm, undisturbed and free. This Spherical Merkaba will keep you in a movement of continual light frequency to sustain your balance from one dimension to the next.
Encasing the Sphere:
After you have energetically encoded your being with this Sphere, it is also that we encase this energy with Alabaster. This Color Frequency will “dust” or “powder” the embodiment and Aura to create a continual “medicinal healing frequency”. This layered energy holds an “enlightenment” experience and a continual Spiral of Ascent. Visualize your body, mind and emotions with the Alabaster Frequency in an uplifting experience. See “Light” flowing through your entire body. Feel the skin, derma, flesh magnetize trillions of Light Beads to you, encircling and encasing you; each of the seven charkas and mental now being filled with these Light Beads. Let the harmonics of Mozart, Beethoven and Elgar be the symphony to this healing.
Giving Gratitude allows the acceptance and continues appreciation of this gift.
Maintaining the Movement of this Sphere:
Meditation, Yoga, Quiet time, Detoxification from foods, drinks, medications, etc., Exercise, Lavender Bath, Cleanses and 13 Star Code Activations (visit www.guidedhands.net for information on the Star Codes).
We are the prodigy of light; void of time and space
Masters of light frequency
Conducting through no reasoning of the mind
Rather that only of Pure Love
Note to the Reader:
This writing is of Oneness. To share…is because you care. Please forward to those of same light interest and even those whom may not understand. For it is the Light Code Frequency admitted just by reading these words. Please feel free to post for others, although we ask you to keep the words and contents in its original format, for Alchemy is the healing element within.
Grace and Honor to you

For the past two days I've had a splitting headache, been nauseous, dizzy, spent a sleepless night, felt so tired that I can hardly stand up, had trouble talking and can't focus. I'm not sick, this is what happens to me when we experience huge energy shifts like the one that began last Friday. Chances are, you felt them too. Our bodies go through many physical changes with energy downloads and they can make us feel like we have been run over by a truck. We can't change that as there is more energy coming but we can understand how to manage these symptoms so we know what we are dealing with and make adjustments to our activities.
Before I get into a list of symptoms, what they mean and why they are happening, there are two things that we can do to minimize their severity. One is to get enough rest, which means getting enough sleep at night (although one of the symptoms is insomnia) so that when these shifts happen you are not so worn out that your body crashes and you are forced to go to bed. The other is to spend time doing breathing exercises which helps ground your body. Even if you just do them for five minutes once a day, focusing on the breath helps you stay grounded so you do not have that feeling of being half here and half out in the ethers.
I knew that a big energy shift was happening because on Saturday I had the urge to clean my house. And not just run the vacuum and dust the furniture, but clean every room, wash floors, dust baseboards and ceilings and straighten out my cabinets. I even thoroughly washed and vacuumed my car. The energy downloads push old energy out and as this energy clears in the spiritual and psychic realms, we can feel it as a need to clean our physical environment. So if you get the urge, clean out your closets, your home, your car and your office. Moving furniture around, washing and dusting removes old energy and allows your physical space to absorb the new energy. This is especially true if you want movement in your life, for example, if you want to move or shift some aspect of your life
Then there are the stronger physical aspects of energy movements, such as the nausea, dizziness, confusion, inability to focus, overwhelming fatigue and problems with thinking and speech. All of these happen because these energy shifts carry new electromagnetic frequencies that literally shut down our old circuits as we are being re-wired into new vibrational frequencies. It's the equivalent of turning off the electricity to re-wire your house. While the electricity is off, not much gets done and it's best to go to bed. While that is not always possible, as we are being re-wired, meaning our neural pathways are being configured to accept higher vibrations. Try to imagine your pre-ascension body as being able to power a 50 watt light bulb.
These energy shifts are changing your physical body so you can power a 1000 watt light bulb. All of the energetic pathways that receive and transmit energy must be upgraded to accept higher frequencies, which is why I refer to this process as re-wiring. It cannot be done at one time as our bodies simply could not take it. So it is done in stages, which occur with each energy download.
Some of this re-configuring can be done at night but some must be done while we are awake which is why we sometimes have insomnia. The work that cannot be done during the day (because the energetic interference is too high) is done at night and if we need to be awake for it, we will not be able to sleep. My solution for this is to just get up and write or read until I feel sleepy again. I find that this always happens between 3 and 6AM. And yes, I'm very tired the next day.
Food sensitivity is another symptom that is a result of the new energetic frequencies. You may find that you crave certain foods and can no longer tolerate past favorites. Processed foods, red meat, pork, sugar and certain vegetables may either not appeal to you or eating them gives you digestive problems. And this changes over time so you are never sure what you can eat and what your body will not tolerate. There are so many foods I can't eat now that my diet has become very simple, including lean protein, vegetables and salad. Anything else makes me sick or makes me gain weight (another unattractive symptom).
Listen to your body and pay attention to what it needs. The simpler the diet, the better for now. I hope that one day we will be able to eat whatever we want but for the moment, our bodies need healthy, wholesome food with few pesticides and preservatives, grown in optimal conditions and eaten in a calm, stress free environment.
Have you put on ten, fifteen or twenty pounds that you can't lose? Welcome to the club. This is a rather frustrating symptom that so many have and that won't go away. There are several reasons for this one. First, the fat acts as an energetic buffer, grounding and protection. As a buffer it gives us more physical density so we tolerate higher frequencies of energy. It grounds us and makes us more aware of our physical presence so we are less likely to be out in the ethers. With the awareness that your clothes don't fit right and your body just feels heavy you are staying focused on your physical presence, which grounds you in the third dimension. And the extra weight adds protection as we feel unattractive and are less likely to open ourselves to other people (I'll talk about this in another Ascension Insight). The weight will go away by itself when it's time. I know people who have watched the weight just melt away even after struggling with it for years.
And the weight may be bloating from water retention as our bodies also retain water to act as a buffer for these frequency shifts. You may notice that you gain five pounds or more a day or two before the energy shifts, I know I do. Then after they are over the weight will go away, until the next energy shift.
Of course this is a very uncomfortable process and despite our best preparation our bodies are really taking a hit. Fortunately the symptoms only last a few days so during that period you may not feel very active or social and then you will be stepping into a new frequency that will require a little bit of adjustment time. In the meantime, get plenty of rest, drink lots of water, eat what your body craves and take care of yourself. The body is the vehicle for ascension and a necessary part of this process. Even though it seems to be in the way sometimes, it is part of your divine trinity and you chose it as your physical presence for this lifetime.
So now that you know what the symptoms are, you will be prepared for the next download which will happen this month, after the Equinox. Stay calm, focused, and aware and remember your thoughts are creating every moment of your life. Think the best ones.
As you ponder this and the other things that are happening at this time (and Mercury is retrograde, which is a great time for reconsideration), remember to:
Accept all gifts of understanding with gratitude and use them to apply forgiveness, release and healing to every situation. Ask for guidance and confirmation and then wait for it to come to you. Above all, be grateful for this opportunity to be part of humanity's amazing shift in consciousness as we all ascend into the miracle vibration.
Many blessings in these miraculous and amazing times, Jennifer Hoffman
September 1, 2010
For just a moment, take a deep breath and enter the Divinity of
your heart. Feel the elation pouring forth from the Company of
Heaven in response to the unprecedented Victory in the Light the
God Selves of Humanity have cocreated during the miraculous
summer of 2010. Never in the history of time has the collective
energy, vibration, and consciousness of Humanity taken such a
quantum leap into the frequencies of Light.
Through the unified efforts of millions of Lightworkers who participated
in hundreds of activities of Light, and the rare celestial alignments
that opened Heavenly Portals allowing monumental influxes of
Divine Light, we have succeeded beyond the greatest expectations
of Heaven. Through the cooperative endeavors of Heaven and
Earth, we reached a critical mass that allowed the God Self, the
I AM Presence, of every man, woman, and child to burst the
oppressive bonds of our human egos.
Every single person on the planet who turned his or her
attention to a Higher Power and invoked the Light of God in
any way this summer was instrumental in bringing this facet
of the Divine Plan to God Victorious fruition. What I will share
with you in this article is just one part of this unified effort. This
is what occurred at the 24th Annual World Congress on Illumination
which was held within the forcefield of Washington, D.C., August 14-19, 2010.
The 24th World Congress on Illumination began with our Opening Ceremonies on August 14th. There were over 500 people in attendance from 22 countries. Twenty-two is the master number that reflects power on all planes and the ability to change the course of history. There were also hundreds of thousands of Lightworkers consciously joining with us from around the world. This event took place in the embrace of a rare Grand Cardinal Cross which involved the planets aligned in Aries, Libra, Cancer, and Capricorn. These astrological signs represent the elements of fire, air, water, and earth which comprise Humanity’s Earthly bodies. This alignment was a very important factor in raising the frequency of our physical/earth, etheric/air, mental/fire, and emotional/water bodies into a vibrational tone that would burst the bonds and transcend the grasp of our human egos.
Spiritual astrologers around the world reported that they had never seen a Grand Cardinal Cross alignment with such a large number of planets involved in such a tight mathematical degree. Those investigating this alignment could not find a similar Grand Cardinal Cross for 500 years before or 500 years after this event.
It is difficult to comprehend the magnitude of what has occurred for Humanity, but to demonstrate the assistance we received from On High I will share with you that this activity of Light drew the attention of the entire Company of Heaven. During our Opening Ceremonies the Mighty Elohim, the Builders of Form, created an colossal amphitheater of Light that encircled the planet and extended into the Heavens as far as the eye could see. Then our Father-Mother God and the Beings of Light serving the Earth invoked the Legions of Light throughout Infinity to join us by projecting their luminous Presence into the amphitheater. The radiant Presences of the Legions of Light throughout the whole of Creation filled the amphitheater. These selfless messengers of God empowered our efforts a thousand times a thousand fold and assisted us every step of the way throughout the entire week.
August 15th, was Mother Mary’s Ascension Day. This is always a powerful day when the Feminine Aspects of Deity assist Humanity with the process of integrating the Love Nature of our Mother God, the Holy Spirit, into every person’s Heart Flame.
After aeons of separation, our Mother God began her return to Earth during the initial impulse of the Shift of the Ages which took place during an activity of Light called Harmonic Concordance. This event took place between very powerful Lunar and Solar Eclipses in November 2003. Since that time, our Mother God has been gently integrating her Love into the Immortal Victorious Threefold Flame in every person’s heart. This Flame consists of the Blue Flame of Divine Will and Power from our Father God, the Pink Flame of Divine Love and Reverence for Life from our Mother God, and the Yellow-Gold Flame of Wisdom and Enlightenment from the Sons and Daughters of God. It is the true reflection of the Holy Trinity.
In the beginning, our Threefold Flames were balanced, but after our fall from Grace we lost awareness of the Love Nature of our Mother God. Since that fateful time, we have been using our masculine power without the balance of our feminine love. This has wreaked havoc on Earth, and it is the main reason we developed the fragmented, fear-based aspect of our consciousness we refer to as our human ego.
On August 15, 2010, our Mother God was at long last able to integrate effectively enough to permanently balance the Pink Flame of Divine Love within every person’s Heart Flame. This miraculous event catapulted the frequency of every person into a higher vibrational tone than we have ever experienced. This allowed the I AM Presence of each person to take more control of their Earthly Bodies.
When the Flame of Divine Love expanded through every Heart Flame, the I AM Presence of every person on Earth breathed this Divine Love into the Heart Flame of every other person’s I AM Presence. This created an enhanced and extremely powerful grid of Transfiguring Divine Love around the planet. This grid of Love extends from the lowest frequencies of Humanity’s miscreations into the highest frequencies of the 5th-Dimensional Realms of Light. This grid of Divine Love is the Bridge to Freedom over which this planet and all her Life will Ascend out of the darkness into the Light. This wondrous event paved the way for the next step of the unfolding Divine Plan.
On August 16th, oceans of our Mother God’s Divine Love flowed through Humanity’s newly balanced Threefold Flames into our newly established grid of Transfiguring Divine Love. This unprecedented influx of Divine Love flowed in, through, and around every particle of Life on Earth and penetrated into the core of purity in every electron of Humanity’s misqualified thoughts, words, feelings, and actions. As the Love of our Mother God bathed every atomic and subatomic particle and wave of Life, a fluid field of unmanifest Divine Potential was created upon which the patterns of perfection for a Higher Order of Being would be imprinted. With the guidance of the Company of Heaven, this event would take place the following day.
August 17th, 2010, was the 23rd anniversary of Harmonic Convergence. On that very powerful day the Beings of Light who abide in the Complex of Etheric Temples above Washington, D.C. took their strategic positions around the planet. The Goddess of Liberty projected her luminous Presence to the Cardinal Point at the North. The Goddess of Divine Justice took her position at the Cardinal Point to the East. The Goddess of Freedom took her position at the Cardinal Point to the South, and the Goddess of Victory took her position at the Cardinal Point to the West. When that was complete, Saint Germain directed his Regal Court of Violet Fire Angels to take their positions within the energy fields of every person, place, condition, and thing in Washington, D.C.
Saint Germain said that Washington, D.C. is modeling the microcosm of the macrocosm for this planet. He said that from its inception until this very moment Washington, D.C. has reflected everything that is right with the world and everything that is wrong with the world. It reflects the Divinity within every person, the Oneness of Life, and the innate ability for Humanity to reach our highest potential as Sons and Daughters of God through Love and Reverence for ALL Life. It also reflects the epitome of the abuse of power, greed, corruption, and selfishness that our fear-based human egos have manipulated us with for aeons of time. We were told by Saint Germain and the Company of Heaven that on that sacred and holy day the Lightworkers at the World Congress on Illumination would be escorted throughout Washington, D.C. by the Violet Fire Angels associated with the Violet Flame of God’s Infinite Perfection. With the assistance of these precious Angels, our I AM Presences would imprint onto the newly created fluid field of unmanifest Divine Potential the archetypes for a Higher Order of Being for Humanity and all Life on this planet.
In deep humility and gratitude the Lightworkers in attendance at the WCI accepted this awesome responsibility and traversed Washington, D.C. North, South, East, and West. We surrendered to our I AM Presences and offered our Heart Flames as the Open Door through which the Light of God would flow to imprint a Higher Order of Being into the physical plane of Earth. Through this activity, the Light God was Liberated into every physical and chemical interaction within the people, places, conditions, and things in Washington, D.C., thus healing and restoring all of the distorted and mutated energy bonds between atoms and within atoms that were miscreated by Humanity’s human egos.
Then, through the willingness of the I AM Presences of the Lightworkers joining in consciousness from all over the world, and the assistance of the Legions of Light throughout Infinity who had projected their luminous Presence into the amphitheater of Light encircling the planet, this activity of Light expanded from the microcosm of Washington, D.C. to the macrocosm of Planet Earth.
Contained within the archetypes of a Higher Order of Being, was the necessary Divine Light to raise the vibrational tone of Humanity’s physical, etheric, mental, and emotional bodies high enough to burst the bonds and transcend the paralyzing grip of our human egos. This Light was able to set straight the orbit, spin, and electronic charge of every cell, atom, and electron of Life on Earth in preparation for the activity of Light that would take place the following day.
On August 18th, we were blessed with the luminous Presence of the Directors of the Elements. These selfless servants of Light took their positions at the four Cardinal Points of the planet. The Directors of the Air Element, Thor and Aires, joined the Goddess of Liberty at the Cardinal Point to the North. The Directors of the Water Element, Neptune and Lunara, joined the Goddess of Divine Justice at the Cardinal Point to the East. The Directors of the Earth Element, Pelleur and Virgo, joined the Goddess of Freedom at the Cardinal Point to the South, and the Directors of the Fire Element, Helios and Vesta, joined the Goddess of Victory at the Cardinal Point to the West.
When all was in readiness, Mother Earth sent her clarion call to the Mighty Elohim and the Elemental Beings who sustain the elements within the physical, etheric, mental, and emotional bodies of Humanity, and the physical, etheric, mental, and emotional strata of the Earth. In an unparalleled activity of Divine Healing, the Elohim and the Directors of the Elements guided the Elemental Beings who cocreate the earth, air, fire, and water elements to purge the dross that had been created by Humanity’s human egos. In an act of amazing Divine Grace, this cleansing occurred through the bodies of Humanity and Mother Earth with the maximum intensity that Cosmic Law would allow. This was the final step of preparation before the activity of Light that would liberate Humanity from the manipulative grasp of our human egos.
On August 19th, the Cosmic Moment had arrived. The I AM Presence of every man, woman, and child on Earth, and the Legions of Light throughout the whole of Creation were standing in readiness. Saint Germain and the Beings of Light from the Etheric Temples over Washington, D.C. were ready to receive from the very Heart of our Father-Mother God the most intensified 5th-Dimensional frequencies of the Violet Flame of God’s Infinite Perfection, and the Divine Qualities of Liberty, Divine Justice, Freedom, and Victory that the Earth could withstand. These were the Divine Qualities that would complete the process of raising Humanity’s four Earthly Bodies into a vibrational tone that would transcend the reach of our human egos.
When our Father-Mother God sounded their Cosmic Keynote, the Mighty Elohim began their descent into the Center of the Earth. On the Holy Breath, the Builders of Form magnetized into their Heart Flames the full Divine Momentum of the Violet Flame of God’s Infinite Perfection. When the Mighty Elohim entered the Sun of Even Pressure in the Heart of Mother Earth, they knelt before the shaft of Light that forms the axis of this planet. Then as one unified force of Light, the Elohim breathed the Violet Flame of God’s Infinite Perfection into the axis of the Earth. The Violet Flame merged with Mother Earth’s Immortal Victorious Threefold Flame and expanded through the Crystal Grid System of Earth like a tremendous starburst. The Violet Flame blazed into every acupuncture point in the body of Mother Earth and was securely anchored there. The Lightworkers joining in consciousness from around the world absorbed this Sacred Fire into their Heart Flames and breathed it into the Heart Flame of the I AM Presence of every person on Earth.
When this facet of the Divine Plan was complete, the Goddesses of Liberty, Divine Justice, Freedom, and Victory inbreathed these Divine Qualities from the Heart of God into their Heart Flames and projected them through the 5th-Dimensional Portal of Light above Washington, D.C. This glorious influx of Divine Light opened the portal to full breadth establishing a permanent flow of these precious Gifts from our Father-Mother God in, through, and around every particle of Life on Earth. The 5th-Dimensional frequencies of Liberty, Divine Justice, Freedom, and Victory, which were beyond anything Humanity or the Earth had ever experienced, expanded through the Heart Flame of every person’s I AM Presence and radiated through the greatly enhanced grid of Transfiguring Divine Love that is now enveloping this planet.
Once this facet of the Divine Plan was complete, the I AM Presence of every man, woman, and child on Earth breathed this Healing Light into the physical, etheric, mental, and emotional bodies that have been controlled and manipulated by the fragmented, fear-based human ego since our fall from Grace. The Divine Qualities of Liberty, Divine Justice, Freedom, and Victory were then projected into every atomic and subatomic particle and wave of Humanity’s Earthly Bodies. This influx of Light created a critical mass, an unstoppable shift, that allowed our I AM Presence to emit the vibrational tone that was needed in order to raise the energy, vibration, and consciousness of our Earthly Bodies into a frequency that transcended the grasp of our human ego. As this vibrational tone reverberated through the physical, etheric, mental, and emotional bodies of ALL Humanity, the oppressive bonds that our egos have used for millennia to keep us hostage and trapped in fear were burst asunder and our egos dropped away.
Our I AM Presence then gathered this wayward aspect of our personality into its loving arms, and escorted our ego into the schools of learning in the Inner Planes. This is where our ego will be transformed into a higher expression of Life, and eventually returned to the heart of our I AM Presence.
This miraculous event God Victoriously liberated the Earthly Bodies of Humanity from the grip of our human egos. What that means for each and every person evolving on this planet is that... We are FREE! We are FREE! We are Eternally FREE!
Now comes the critical next step for each of us. Our Etheric Bodies are known as “the seat of all memory.” Everything we have experienced through all of our Earthly sojourns is recorded in this vehicle. That means that the memories of our human ego’s devious schemes and deceptions are recorded in this vehicle. Since we are all creatures of habit, if we do not stay focused on our I AM Presence, it will be easy for us to have a reflex response to our life experiences that imitate our ego’s behavior. That will occur, simply because that is the way we were used to acting in the past. It is our responsibility to be PRESENT in every moment of our lives. Daily and hourly, we must think and feel aligned with our I AM Presence BEFORE we respond to a situation. Move away from any trace of fear, and say to yourself, “I AM my I AM Presence. From this level of Divine Consciousness, how will I respond to this situation? How will I add to the Light of the world with my thoughts, words, feelings, actions, beliefs, and attitudes in this instance?” Then with listening Grace, respond to the Divine Guidance of your I AM Presence.
Without the interference of our human egos, we will hear the guidance of our I AM Presence in new and profound ways. This has been extremely difficult in the past, but that is over. Everything has changed! Listen and Trust yourself.
An easy test to be sure you are responding to the guidance of your I AM Presence and not merely connecting with the etheric records of your human ego, is to ask yourself “Is this response free from fear? Is it the most positive way of handling this situation? Does this response involve the highest good for all concerned? Am I adding to the Light of the world by responding in this way?” If your answer is “NO” to any of these questions, the guidance is not coming from your I AM Presence. You are responding from a residual habit of your ego from the past.
Instead of acting out of that old habit, center yourself and ask your I AM Presence for guidance again. Do this as many times as you need to until you are able to answer “YES” to all of the questions.
Many people are not aware on a conscious level that their I AM Presence has succeeded in bursting the bonds of their human ego and that they are now free from their ego’s fear-based manipulation. They may not even realize that they have an I AM Presence. Consequently, they will not know about asking their I AM Presence these important questions before responding to the situations in their life. These people are going to be more prone to act out of the old habits and the obsolete behavior patterns of their human ego. But, fortunately, their is an answer to this problem, and the Company of Heaven is asking for our assistance in resolving this situation.
Since we are One with ALL of our sisters and brothers in the Family of Humanity, we can invoke their I AM Presence on their behalf. Everyone still has the free will to ignore the inner guidance of their I AM Presence, but without the interference from their human ego they will hear this guidance much more easily. The important thing to remember is that our I AM Presence is very practical, therefore, the guidance always involves viable options and solutions that will enhance our lives and the lives of others. It is hard to keep resisting this kind of guidance. As we perpetually invoke the I AM Presences of our sisters and brothers around the world and ask THEM to intervene in their lives, eventually even the most resistant person is going to respond to the heart call of their I AM Presence. Then that person will see the life-enhancing results of their actions, which will motivate them to listen to that inner guidance on a regular basis.
It is impossible for us to truly comprehend the magnitude of what it means for all of us to be free from the manipulation of our egos, but our lives have been transformed. Instead of feeling like we are struggling to accomplish our goals by walking through tar with gale force winds blowing in our face, we are now empowered in new ways by our I AM Presence and the Divine Intervention of the Heavenly Realms. The patterns of perfection we focus on for our individual life and our collective lives as the Family of Humanity will manifest much more quickly. Through the newly created template of Unity Consciousness and Humanity’s newfound freedom from our human egos, we will cocreate the New Earth in a very tangible way sooner than we ever dreamed possible.
Day by day, things are going to get better on this planet. Pay attention, and empower only that which reflects the Higher Order of Being associated with your I AM Presence. Then you will automatically empower the patterns of perfection for the New Earth through your thoughts, words, actions, and feelings.
KNOW that through your I AM Presence, you are the Divine Qualities of Liberty, Divine Justice, Freedom, and Victory freeing Humanity, and all of the energy bonds within Humanity which include the relationships and the interactions of all people, all races, all religions, all organizations, and all nations. You are your I AM Presence liberating these interactions into the harmony of a Higher Order of Being, thus expanding the influence of Humanity’s I AM Presence on Earth. You know this Higher Reality within your heart and mind, and through your I AM Presence you are a calm ocean of these Divine Qualities flooding the Earth.
We have God Victoriously made a quantum leap up the 5th-Dimensional Spiral of Evolution. There is no turning back! Be at Peace, and enjoy the ride. Your time has come. And so it is.
Here is a link to a YouTube video that will help you to assimilate your I AM Presence now that the human ego has been released.

The information in this monthly sharing is being given to Humanity by the Beings of Light in the Realms of Illumined Truth. The Divine Intent of these celestial sharings is to encourage, empower, uplift, and inspire Humanity by allowing us to see the bigger picture during these wondrous but often challenging times.
July 17 - 18, 2010
by Patricia Diane Cota-Robles
We have just emerged from the unprecedented influence of several very powerful planetary alignments, an exceptionally powerful Solstice, and greatly amplified Lunar and Solar Eclipses. The influx of Light associated with these celestial events helped Humanity to break down the crystallized negative patterns from our pasts. This empowered each of us to release and let go of obsolete behavior patterns and belief systems that do not serve our highest good.
One of those belief systems, actually the most destructive of them all, is Humanity’s belief in separation and duality. Fortunately, the celestial events of the past few weeks have paved the way for a vitally important next step in the amazing Divine Plan that is unfolding this summer. The next facet of the Divine Plan is designed to help Humanity remember that we are One with all Life, and that there is no separation. This event will establish a template for Unity Consciousness that will assist Humanity to move forward in the Light in new and profound ways.
Once we develop Unity Consciousness we will know that there is no such thing as “us and them.” We will remember that all Life is interconnected, interdependent, and interrelated. What this means very practically in our lives is that every single thought, word, feeling, or action we express effects every facet of Life on this planet. Just think, with every thought, word, feeling, or action we are either adding to the Light of the world or to the shadows. Moment by moment, we are either positively or negatively affecting every person, place, condition, or thing on Earth. That is quite a responsibility!
The Global activity of Light being orchestrated by Lightworkers around the world to cocreate the template for Unity Consciousness is being called “The Conscious Convergence...A Wave of Unity.” This event will take advantage of the influx of Divine Light that will be expanding through the Cosmos on July 17th & 18th, 2010. This activity of Light is being initiated by Dr. Carl Johan Calleman who is a scholar of the Mayan Calendar and prophesies. This is the Mission Statement and Purpose for The Conscious Convergence event.
“The Conscious Convergence mission is to bring people together with the shared intention of cultivating a critical mass of harmonious energy that supports inner and outer reconciliation. We come together in the spirit of unity to heal wounds that separate us, to reconcile conflicts that divide us, to inspire ideas and actions that express our Oneness, and to join together in heart and mind to welcome the birth of our New World.
“The Conscious Convergence is a global collaborative of individuals and organizations whose purpose is to set the intention for, and to demonstrate the fulfillment of, Unity Consciousness, both individually and within communities around the world. All wisdom and faith traditions are invited to join and help express how we, as an evolving species, can transcend age-old boundaries and ideologies to fulfill a greater destiny than our history may imply.
“This Global collaborative prepares us for the evolution of consciousness as indicated by the Mayan Calendar. Mayan elders invite us to align with the Divine Plan for Humanity’s greater fulfillment, to recognize that ‘we are One like the fingers of one hand’ --Grand Elder Don Alejandro.
“Local and global intention-setting activities, meditations, and prayers will be synchronized throughout the months leading up to and following the main program on July 17th & 18th, 2010.”
The Conscious Convergence movement is assuring people everywhere that the time has arrived for all of us to move beyond the consciousness of separation and duality. It is time for us to join together as one breath, one heartbeat, one voice, and one consciousness of pure Divine Love. We must acknowledge the Divinity within every heart and celebrate our diversities, thus moving past the illusion of things that separate us.
Beginning today and continuing through July 17th & 18th and far beyond, let’s begin the healing process of Unity Consciousness by invoking the Light of God and expanding that Light through ourselves, our relationships, families, communities, countries, and the world. Let’s bathe the earth, air, water, and fire elements, the Nature Kingdom and ALL Life evolving on this precious planet in this healing unguent from our Father-Mother God and the Company of Heaven. Together we will cocreate a template for Unity Consciousness that will transform Humanity and lift this planet and all her Life into the next phase of the unfolding Divine Plan.
Please join with me now as we invoke the Light of God on behalf of Humanity and all Life.
To prepare our hearts and minds to receive this influx of Light, let’s join together in one-pointed consciousness.
I will lead you through this guided visualization in the first person, so that we will all experience this activity of Light individually, but KNOW that the invocations we make this sacred day for ourselves, we make for ALL Humanity and every particle of Life evolving on this sweet Earth. And we begin.
I AM going within to the deepest recesses of my heart, the secret place of the Most High Living God. There I kneel before the altar of Love and surrender my lower human ego to the perfection of my I AM Presence, my true God Reality. (pause)
My I AM Presence takes full dominion of my physical, etheric, mental, and emotional bodies, and I AM lifted up in consciousness. The Light of God fills my Being, and I ascend into the Realms of Illumined Truth.
Within this octave of Light, Unity Consciousness flows into my Heart Flame and floods the Earth to bless all Life. As Humanity is consecrated with the Light of Unity Consciousness, specific genetic codings are activated within every person's RNA/DNA structures. These codings contain the Immaculate Concept of each one's Divine Potential. This activity of Light empowers every Beloved Son and Daughter of God to fulfill their Divine Purpose and reason for being.
Through this activation the mind and emotions of every person are purified and realigned with the Harmony of their True Being. This purification paves the way for the conscious mind and the super-conscious mind within every Human Being to merge and become One.
In this state of at-one-ment, Humanity's I AM Presence takes command and the life, body, mind, and soul of every person is quickened and lifted into a state of enlightenment that clears the way for Unity Consciousness and the fulfillment of the Divine Plan.
Unity Consciousness contains a clarity and frequency of Divine Love that transcends ALL obstacles. Held in the embrace of this Divine Intelligence, we comprehend the Truth that we are One with all Life, and we are One with our Father-Mother God. Unity Consciousness contains within its essence our full potential to rise above all human conditions and all self-inflicted pain and suffering, for when we join together as One we become a force of unlimited and unspeakable power.
With Unity Consciousness, I recognize and revere the Divinity within every Human Being. I peer into the heart of every man, woman, and child, and I see a radiant Being of Light abiding within every Heart Flame. As I acknowledge each person’s Divinity, the I AM Presence within their heart begins to expand.
As the I AM Presence of each person increases in power and dominion, the obsolete beliefs and behavior patterns associated with fear and separation, or lack and limitation, begin dropping away. Regardless of the depths of negativity the Human Being has fallen to, his or her I AM Presence now takes control and corrects their course of direction.
I now breathe in deeply and assimilate the Light of Unity Consciousness into my physical, etheric, mental, and emotional bodies. For a sublime moment, I revel in the wonder of this magnificent Light.
Through my I AM Presence I consecrate my Life to be the Open Door for Unity Consciousness until the patterns of perfection for the New Earth are manifest, and all Life belonging to or serving the Earth at this time is experiencing the Divine Qualities of Liberty, Divine Justice, Freedom, and Victory in the Light. And so it is, Beloved I AM.

As We Sow
The chief point of the spiritual teachings of karma and reincarnation, for humanity, Mme. Blavatsky says — “is to uproot that most fertile source of all crime and immorality — the belief that it is possible for them to escape the consequences of their own actions."
“Once teach [humankind] those greatest of all laws — Karma and Re-incarnation,” Blavatsky writes,
“… and besides feeling in themselves the true dignity of human nature, they will turn from evil and eschew it as they would a physical danger.”
All good and evil things in humanity have their roots in human character, and this character is ever conditioned by an endless chain of self-initiated cause and effect. But this conditioning applies to the future, as well as to the present and the past. Selfishness, indifference, and brutality can never be the normal state of the race, Theosophy affirms — to believe so would be to despair of humanity.
Evolution of Responsibility
“Progress can be attained, and only attained, by the development of the nobler qualities,” says Blavatsky. “Now, true evolution teaches us that by altering the surroundings of the organism we can alter and improve the organism — and in the strictest sense this is true with regard to man.”
“Such efforts should be made with a view to their ultimate social emancipation, or the development of the sense of duty in those who now so often neglect it in nearly every relation of life.” -Key to Theosophy, Section 12
“The sense of responsibility must be the guiding principle in our life. The sense of responsibility is the key to human and planetary survival.” -Torkom Saravdrian
“In every country and in every age there were and there will be people, pure of heart, who, conquering their earthly thoughts and the passions of the flesh, raise their spiritual faculties to such a pitch — that the mysteries of being and the laws governing Nature, hidden from the uninitiated — are revealed to them.
“Let blind men persecute them — let them be burned and hunted — let them be called Magi, Wise Men, Raj Yogis or saints — they have lived and they still live everywhere, recognized or unrecognized.
“For these people who have illumined themselves during their life-time, there are no obstacles, there are no bodily ties.
“They do not know either distance or time. They are alive and active in the body as well as out of it. They are, wherever their thought and their will carries them. They are not tied down by anything, either by a place, or by their temporary mortal covering.”
“Let him say what is true.
Let him say what is useful.
Let him say what is pleasant.
Let him utter no disagreeable truth.
Let him utter no agreeable falsehood.”
-Laws of Manu
“If our present lives depend upon the development of certain principles which are a growth from the germs left by a previous existence, the law holds good as regards the future.
“Once grasp the idea that universal causation is not merely present, but past, present and future, and every action on our present plane falls naturally and easily into its true place, and is seen in its true relation to ourselves and to others.”
“Every mean and selfish action sends us backward and not forward, while every noble thought and every unselfish deed are steppingstones to the higher and more glorious planes of being.
“If this life were all, then in many respects it would indeed be poor and mean — but regarded as a preparation for the next sphere of existence, it may be used as the golden gate through which we may pass, not selfishly and alone, but in company with our fellows, to the palaces which lie beyond.”
The Beacon Light
“Printed words are only ‘ladders’ by which the learner can climb to Wisdom. Each one has to make his own connection with higher planes and Those who live in higher realms.
“It has often been said that ‘when the materials are ready, the Architect will appear.
“So our work must be to get the material ready, and that means we have to get rid of the purely personal bias by making Theosophy a living power in our lives. So long as we are working for some reward, are inclined to be despondent or impatient, we shall be placing obstacles in our own way.” -Robert Crosbie, The Spirit in the Body
“Although Theosophical ideas have entered into every development or form which awakening spirituality has assumed, yet Theosophy pure and simple has still a severe battle to fight for recognition.
“. . . there are others among us who realize intuitionally that the recognition of pure Theosophy — the philosophy of the rational explanation of things and not the tenets — is of the most vital importance inasmuch as it alone can furnish the beacon light needed to guide humanity on its true path.
“This should never be forgotten.”
The short and sweet answer is:
IT'S GOING TO BE INCREDIBLE......
There's more than one way to look at it, but no matter which way it goes, it's going to be pretty awesome. It's going to be incredible. And there's so much data to back up these views... that's why I'm writing this book. Here's the long-winded answer to the question, but I know that's on a lot of people's minds, so I thought I'd go into some detail on it.
NO ONE KNOWS FOR SURE
The thing is, nobody really knows what this thing is going to turn into until it actually happens. We really don't know. All we know is that worldwide ancient prophecies - and I mean every ancient tradition - had this encoded mystery about a 25,920 year cycle called the Precession of the Equinoxes, which is this slow wobble in the Earth's axis. They all describe this cycle. They all describe the coming of great Earth changes at the end of the cycle, and that after that we go into a Golden Age.
And this was worked on by two historians, Giorgio de Santillana and Hertha von Dechend. Graham Hancock popularized all that, made it so public. So, Hamlet's Mill is the name of the book [by Santillana and Dechend]; it's still out there. Everybody talks about this precessional cycle.
THE PROPHECIES CONVERGE IN A SMALL WINDOW
Well, in the book 2012 Enigma I'm working on right now for Penguin, I have now traced multiple threads that show ancient prophecies all converging on the year 2012 to 2014... in that window. In Hinduism it's about 2014, based on some dates in the Mahabharata. But it's all basically right around the same time. So the question is: What the heck is going to happen? What is the Golden Age? What are we going to get? Some of the oldest prophecies actually are from Zoroastrianism. This is some of the new data that I'm going to go into in the Austin Convergence conference.
ZOROASTRIAN / ARYAN PROPHECIES
There's really, really fascinating stuff in Zoroastrian prophecy. It's not the typical Judeo-Christian Biblical apocalypse at all. There's a prototypical civilization that actually started in what's now Siberia. They moved from there because there was the coming of the Great Ice Age 12,000 years ago that forced them to leave their land; there was an Earth-shift. The remnants of that culture are now what we call the Aryan race. And this is, again, going back to Nazi Germany; they knew about this and they blew it all out of proportion. But the Aryan strain of human being actually is in India. That's one of the two offshoots. So all the Hindu stuff in the Mahabharata and all those texts is derived from the ancient Aryans that came from Siberia and then migrated away from there.
Now those ancient Aryans, according to some of the very highly-placed insiders I know, did have portal technology - meaning stargate technology. They had very advanced stuff. They were in contact with extraterrestrial races, and in some sense, there has been a continuance of this technology and this lineage throughout other offshoots.
MASSIVE ENERGY WAVE FROM THE SUN
But when you go back to the Zoroastrian tradition, they actually describe the coming of a great energy wave that shines through pretty much the whole Earth at once. Now, one of the things the Zoroastrian prophecy says is very CONTROVERSIAL.
Those people who are the "righteous"... And you can take that for whatever you want it to mean ... Will not be affected by it. They say you definitely feel it, but it's as if it moves around you. It's like you're in the middle of an electrical shower, or something, but you don't actually feel anything negative. And it actually does say this - I'm not going to cover up the truth. It does say that the "wicked" are "consumed" by it.
Now, this is really interesting because then when you go into the Hindu tradition, they describe what they call the "Samavartaka Fire." Now, remember, the Hindu tradition comes directly out of the Zoroastrian pedigree, the Aryan pedigree... it's all the same stuff. In fact, in Zoroastrianism the King's name is Yuma; In Hinduism his name is Yima. They all talk about the same events, the same stuff. It all traces back to these original archaic texts from 12,000 years ago that they both inherited in either of these two religious strains. So, in Zoroastrianism, I think they call it the "Purifying Fire."
In Hinduism they call it "Samavartaka" and they basically say the same thing. They say that it's the massive light-storm that comes at the end of the Age, and They describe it as if there are electrical properties it seems to have. And there are multiple references in the Mahabharata to the Samavartaka.
In the other tradition that I had, which was W. Raymond Drake's Gods and Spacemen in the Ancient East - it's a book that I had - he called it the "Somvarta Fire." But that was only a mis-translation. Now that I've found the right name, which is Samavartaka [spells it]... You can do Google searches on that with sacred-texts.com, and you'll find a whole bunch of references to it.
THE LIGHT SHINING FROM EAST TO WEST
It seems to also be mirrored in Judeo-Christian prophecy when it says "As the Light shineth from the East unto the West, so too shall the coming of the Son of Man be." Well, what the heck does that mean... the Light shining from the East to the West? It's the Samavartaka Fire - it's this purifying light.
Now, I believe that when these things are being spoken about that they are metaphorical in nature. I do not believe that the "wicked" are literally "consumed" by it. But what it does seem happens is that when this light-storm arrives, the people who pass through it, as in these prophecies, no longer are able to see people who have gone into a different plane of existence. That's why it appears that they've been "consumed", because they no longer appear to you - you don't see them anymore.
Now, that's one potential outcome.
A CHANGE IN REALITY -- DIFFERENT TIME-LINES
These ancient prophecies are literally saying that the sun gives off some sort of energetic effect. This is not a cataclysm, by the way, because in Zoroastrianism, they don't say that it destroys the Earth. They just say that there's this massive light-change that happens. So, what does that really mean? It could be that we pop onto different timelines and that we're in different planes.
The people who are still here on Earth, in our own current plane of existence, think that a small number of people, relatively speaking, have disappeared. They don't know what's happened, but they're now in a different reality in which there's going to be UFO Disclosure; they're going to have Star Trek kinds of things happening to them.
But then there's other people, when this Samavartaka Fire comes along, who will actually be energetically transformed into a different plane. They all notice each other and they appear to be on the Earth, too, but it's a different frequency. So that's the spontaneous argument.
THE THREE-WAY SPLIT
There are actually also some really enigmatic passages in the Law of One series that suggest this is going to happen. They call it the Three-way Split. They basically say negative people, like the truly negative, like black magic Illuminati types, go off to what they call Fourth Density Negative. They have now graduated into the next higher plane of existence that's based on the use of occult black magic as a pecking-order, basically. The problem is that no matter how crafty you think you are here on Earth, once you graduate to 4-D Negative, you're at the bottom of the totem pole. Everybody else is going to be basically feasting on YOU, so it's not a good place to be. It's kind of like being stuck in the horror movie, Hellraiser.
Then you have Fourth Density Positive, which is where the Earth will ultimately go into. According to the Law of One, it takes about 100 to 700 of our years of time to transition into that reality. This could be a lot of longer in terms of the Earth's measurement of time, as they think of it, once this change happens.
Then you also have the middle-of-the-road people who are not really Service to Others enough to be Fourth Density Positive, and, they're not really Service to Self enough to be Fourth Density Negative. They're basically confused; they oscillate between positive and negative. Those folks, - and it's taken me a long time to kind of put this together - apparently experience an unbroken continuity. They don't notice, really, that anything's happened.
Fourth Density Positive people seem to have noticed that they all disappear, but then the people that are in the middle of the road would think that everybody else has disappeared.
There's a lot of Bible quotes that say this, and that was the conventional model.
NEW WHISTLEBLOWER TESTIMONY
Now, I have a whistleblower who came forward who gave me an alternate scenario that he claims was explained to him by extraterrestrials that he had encountered in the line of his work. The problem that we've had with this particular guy is that I caught him in what appears to be a distortion. In other words, we haven't published the testimony yet. We went back and looked at it and there was one thing that he said to me that I was able to blatantly point out was false... and he broke off all contact with us once I did that.
The problem is that some of the evidence that he gave us was so compelling and so irrefutable... undeniable photographic evidence that he worked in one of these programs. It could not have been photo-shopped. I'm convinced that he's not a hoax, but it's possible that he may have been assigned to give us disinformation. It's possible that he knowingly did it to protect himself so that his story could be debunked.
I don't know why he did it, but he definitely gave us at least one thing that was not true, so all this data has to have a question mark over it. That being said, some of it was very compelling, and it correlated very nicely with other things that I knew.
WE GET A DISCLOSURE -- FOLLOWED BY COACHING ON 'ASCENSION'
His understanding, based on what he was told, was that this shift would affect everyone. There would be an open formal Disclosure... UFOs are known to be real... Extraterrestrials begin interacting with us, and that they would basically be here to coach people that wanted to go through this 'ascension' process. It wouldn't happen all at once, but there would be a series of steps you could take that would lead to you being able to make this transformation.
So that's kind of a more interesting view because what he also says is that everybody else who goes through this change still ends up in a Star Trek kind of reality anyway. They still have access to amazing technology, they can go travel the galaxy [and] they meet other humans. It's just that they don't go into this higher plane of existence. So that's possible, and I really don't know which one is true.
The ancient prophecies do seem to all suggest that it's a spontaneous shift, and depending on what vibrational frequency you're at, will determine what reality you encounter from that point forward.
IT'S GOING TO BE INCREDIBLE
So the short and sweet answer is: There's more than one way to look at it, but no matter which way it goes, it's going to be pretty awesome. It's going to be incredible. And there's so much data to back up these views... that's why I'm writing this book.
So that's kind of the long-winded answer to the question, but I know that's on a lot of people's minds, so I thought I'd go into some detail on it.

Maurice Fernandez is an evolutionary astrologer
Greetings, I feel compelled to write this note about what we astrologers are
seeing coming. We are in the beginning of a very unique time in history that
will redefine the foundations of our lives.. The astrological circumstances
are uncommon and very dramatic. Change is likely to affect every level of
our being, even though each person will feel it differently and in varying
degrees of intensity.
I'm writing this note so that you may make better use of this time and
understand what it is about. As astrologers we are aware of cycles that
affect our existence; because this coming cycle is very unique, I feel it is
important to share this information. I will try to keep it simple and not
burden you with a long text and excessive details.
There are multiple planetary bodies that are gradually forming a very
particular and rare alignment. This configuration began to form during the
fall of 2008. Politically, that time was when the economical crisis exploded
and when US president Barack Obama was elected. The configuration will move
into a second phase during November 2009 and January/February 2010. (Saturn
will move into the Cardinal sign of Libra and will form powerful angle to
Pluto in Capricorn)...
The third phase is probably the most dramatic and intense, and will occur
from the end of June to the end of July 2010, when all the factors of the
configuration will align together in a cross at the very beginning of
Cardinal signs in astrology. (Cardinal signs are the signs of new cycles.
The planets in questions are Pluto, Uranus, Saturn, Jupiter, and Mars. These
planets are slow moving bodies and therefore it is absolutely exceptional
that these slow moving bodies end up all aligned in a cross on these very
In normal circumstances, some people go through changes while others
continue their routine. Here the alignment is so strong and dramatic that
everyone's life can be considerably affected. it is likely that your life
will not be the same by fall 2010! The question that often arises is:" Is it
bad, or is it good?" The answer is that it depends on the way one deals with
the events; a conscious approach can make a difference.
One thing for certain: do not expect security, consistency, and
predictability during this time. Reality is bound to change fast and so it
is better to move with the flow, while remaining conscious of what is going
on. Flexibility is one of the most important assets during this time. This
influence is analogous to a gigantic wave forming.you can ride on that wave
and go farther than ever expected -experience a powerful transformation that
can elevate you to new grounds. But this wave can also destroy a lot of what
you are currently attached to.
Redefinition may occur in different fields: you may change vocation,
relationships, location, mindsets, to name but a few. New people will move
into your life, current ones may leave. New ideas and projects will develop
and you may feel inspired to completely reinvent yourself! The cards are
re-shuffled! This is a time of an awakening, a revolution.an internal and
Everything is shaking up. Everything. From November 2009 until August 2010,
nothing will stay still. It can be very good, but you have to learn to
navigate these changes and seize opportunity when it comes. Don't try to
have it all perfect, don't try to keep the cake and eat it: change can take
you to a completely new and perhaps higher level of what you are about, but
you will have to let go of your security during this time. It is a time for
risk, reinvention, new ideas, new concepts, new vision, and the impetus to
make it happen.
Marriages may break, jobs and possessions may be lost, people may get sick,
and simultaneously, new relationships may emerge, new passion may awaken, a
completely new lifestyle is in the making...You are embarking on an
adventure whether you know it or not, whether you like it or not. My
suggestion: make peace with the idea, don't resist the adventure. If you are
accepting it, you will make the best of it. If you fight and resist it, you
won't win. This is what I mean by being open to risk taking. it may be time
to take that "plunge!"
Risking does not mean giving in to every silly venture. It is about hearing
a calling for truth. Things you have denied, postponed, avoided, feared, but
things you know were true. This is a time to be more truthful and follow a
Collectively, while the forces of corruption and manipulation may attempt to
control the course of events, they are bound to disintegrate. Scandals will
continue to hit the news. Natural events will continue to shake the earth.
Atworst, a war may break during summer 2010 or later because dramatic changes
can spur fear and conflict.... But it does not have to go that way; we are
creators of our own destiny in the midst of the given circumstances.
As you go through these changes, it is crucial that you take good care of
your immune system because as positive as changes may be, they can overwhelm
you and weaken your immune system: eat more healthy, avoid fast sugar,
ingest raw garlic and onions daily (sandwich), exercise, take time out of
the intensity loop, do not let negativity take over-these are basic tips
that can keep you grounded.
Importantly: the situation heating up is like a piece of molten iron that
can be beaten into a better form-personally and collectively. Be an
ambassador of good and avoid wasting time on trivial details. For example,
as we see the earth being depleted and all resources and species dwindling,
people waste time arguing if global warming is or is not happening. If it is
man-made or not! IT DOESN'T MATTER! What matters is that the natural world
is vanishing before our eyes because of our misaligned actions: excessive
pollution, deforestation, and peaking toxicity levels are a reality beyond
global warming debates.
Similarly, the economy is not likely to stabilize any time soon. But
perhaps, necessarily so. And so it will be with many other aspects of your life...you
will not have immediate answers. Be patient and keep doing your best. When
the cycle will complete, new circumstances will emerge... This cannot be
artificially rushed. These dramatic times are an opportunity for us to
restructure our lives, personally and collectively. As many things are being
redefined, we can relinquish bad habits and attachments, open up to new
ideas, and invest in what works rather than settle for immediate
gratification. Patience is another essential asset.
In this context, do not expect others to change for the better if you don't
do it yourself. We blame the governments and project our frustration on
distant "evils," but fail to open our hearts ourselves. Being pro-active may
work better than being self-righteous.
IMPORTANT DATES TO NOTE:
June 25 to August 5, 2010
November 1 to December 26, 2010
Understand this is an opportunity to reinvent ourselves in a better way.
Understand there will be a price to pay, something may need to go.
If you lose something or someone, understand this is the sign of these
times, use a crisis to venture into new horizons and create something new.
Understand this is an adventure and risk must be taken.
Understand that this is not a time when we can expect security-we are in
Listen to your inner truth, make you life truly happen now.
Take care of your immune system: avoid bad diets in general. They render you
vulnerable to opportunistic viruses.
Support your friends and family, we all shall need one another for support
during this transition time.
Cultivate your spiritual practice: this is also important for your immune
Do your best to do good: whatever you seed now will have effect now and
There is probably more than can be said and explained, but you get the
point. An incredible opportunity is arising, now and throughout 2010. This
type of cycle has not happened in recent history. We can expect a certain
level of destruction to occur-that is the price to pay. But the prospect of
experiencing an awakening and creating a better future is now within reach.
We are now in the midst of a revolution-a cultural, social, and political
revolution. On a personal level, it is a conceptual, emotional, and or
spiritual revolution. Truly, it is in the making!
Here is one by Tom Kenyon, who is a brilliant communicator and channel for the Hathors.
This article is taken from his beatutiful website: http://tomkenyon.com
Hope you enjoy it because it contributed in great ways to a new metaphysical understanding.
-AS, founder of NR
Thoughts and Observations from the Channel
Before you read over the material...
I will tell you what I say to those who attend my workshops—keep an “imaginary box”
beside you at all times. If what I say doesn’t make sense to you or violates your view
of reality, then I suggest you just toss it in the box. Never swallow or accept as truth,
anything anyone says without sifting it through your own life-experience, your own
sense of logic, and, very importantly, your own personal values.
Swallowing ideas without chewing on them and digesting them thoroughly can lead
to a type of mental and/or spiritual indigestion. And for this type of ailment, there
is no such thing as an instant antacid.
There are those who say that one should leave one’s sense of logic and rational thinking
behind when entering into the spiritual realms of experience—that one must fully and
completely surrender to faith and not let reason enter into the picture. Personally,
I think this type of thinking is dangerous. We need all our wits about us and all the
intelligence we can muster if we are not to become deluded on our way to spiritual
illumination. It is the true light of self-awareness that we seek, not the false luminosity
of personal fantasy and desire. In this regard, logic and rational thinking are not the
nemesis of channeled communications; they are critical allies.
Regarding Higher Dimensions of Consciousness
If I might be so bold as to summarize the Hathors’ central message, it is this—as
humans we have access to other dimensions of consciousness. This interdimensionality
is part of our innate being, but it is something that has to be cultivated or developed.
What do I mean, exactly, when I say interdimensionality? To explain this, let’s take a look at it from several perspectives—how interdimensional of me!
As you are reading this, or hearing it read to you, the language centers in your brain are making sense of the blabber we call English. At the same time, you might be hearing a sound from outside—perhaps a honking horn or the sound of an animal. You could also at the same moment, feel yourself taking a breath. All of these events—the reading of these words, the sounds you hear and your breathing—are dimensions of consciousness.
You can become aware of any of these dimensions by shifting your attention to them. But it is your attention to an event that makes it conscious. If you don’t pay attention, you won’t notice something taking place. If, for instance, you are completely engrossed in this article then you might not notice your breath, or the sounds outside. They exist independently of your awareness of them, but in your world of perception it will be as if they never happened.
Our inner world of perception also has many dimensions or realms. Most of these are inaccessible to us much of the time, because—quite frankly—we have been trained to focus on only a small bandwidth of internal experiences as significant—namely those that make us more productive or useful to society. While such practical states of mind are undoubtedly important, they are not the only states open to us.
In order for you to experience these inner worlds of perception, you have to alter your brain activity through meditation, or some other method. Then you can have a direct experience of these worlds and the rather amazing phenomena that take place within you. But until you experience these worlds directly, it is as if they do not exist, because they are outside the range of your perception.
The ability to access these higher dimensions or creative worlds within ourselves, although rather esoteric, offers unique practical benefits. For one, these other dimensions of consciousness can often reveal creative insights and solutions to problems that are not apparent in our normal ways of thinking and perceiving.
The history of science is full of breakthroughs and new insights that were brought about due to these non-ordinary states of mind. Let me be a bit more specific to help explain what I am talking about.
Science is usually thought of as the pinnacle of human reason. The scientific method is, after all, based upon rational observation and the logical solution of problems. However, in actuality, those who undertake science—the scientists themselves—have reported that, at times, the solution to a scientific dilemma came to them through non-logical means.
Take, for instance, the German chemist Kekule who discovered the molecular structure of benzene. He said that he struggled with this dilemma incessantly; it was an obsession, but no resolution was in sight.
Then one night he had a dream. In the dream, he saw a snake swallowing its tail. He woke up and realized that this was, in fact, the structure of the benzene ring. After translating his vision into the language of mathematics, he was able to prove that his nighttime insight had been correct.
One of the interesting things about Kekule’s dream image is that it was centered around a classic alchemical symbol—the uroboros. This iconographic element depicts a serpent swallowing its tail—just as in Kekule’s dream.
Thus, significant information can be revealed to us when we enter other dimensions of our own consciousness. The physicist, Albert Einstein, reported that he uncovered the principles of General Relativity through a series of fantasies. And he once quipped that one cannot solve a problem at the level of the problem; one has to go to a higher level to solve it.
The question of dimensions has intrigued physicists and mathematicians as well as metaphysicians for a very long time. The first consideration in regards to dimensionality is from what standpoint one is considering it. Mathematicians, for instance, often view dimensions in a different manner than do physicists.
The Hathors have a unique perspective on dimensionality, specifically the dimensionality of consciousness. It is their view that the higher dimensions of our consciousness can and do affect what we call material reality.
Flatland, Where We Live
When I conduct Hathor workshops in which people experience them directly through inner attention, I like to talk a bit about the concept of other dimensions of consciousness before their first encounters with these beings. To do this, I sometimes start with a brief description of a fascinating book called Flatland, written in 1884 by the Victorian satirist, Edwin Abbott.
I bring this novella into our discussion because it explores the paradox of how those living in a given dimension can never fully understand other dimensions outside their own.
Here is a very brief summary.
Once upon a time there was an imaginary world called Flatland. It only had two dimensions—length and width. Those who lived on Flatland were called Flatlanders. No one on Flatland had ever seen anything three-dimensional since Flatland was…well…flat.
One day a sphere (a ball) passed through Flatland. As it made first contact, a single point appeared in their world, which grew to be a small circle. And then the circle grew larger and larger. At one moment, the circle was very large, the largest it ever got. This moment corresponded, of course, when the ball’s largest circumference was passing through Flatland.
And then, for no apparent reason, the circle started getting smaller and smaller until it disappeared into a point. And then the point disappeared.
There were many ideas about what had happened, but no one on Flatland knew what had actually occurred. The Flatlanders simply could not imagine anything like a sphere because they could not conceive of anything outside the reference of their two-dimensional world.
I think we are like that.
We live in our day-to-day three-dimensional world thinking that this is all there is. If time is the fourth dimension, as some theorists (though not all) have suggested, then most of us have a pretty good grasp of it as well. By that I mean we can tell time, and can show up at meetings and appointments on time. And for most of us that is all we are interested in.
The Paradox of Time
But there are other ways of looking at time. Our modern mechanistic perception of time is only one aspect, and when we transcend or stop perceived time all together (as in meditation or certain types of esoteric practices) things get very interesting. Indeed, when we step out from the rut of perceived time (via meditation, etc.) we more easily enter other realms of human experience. These unusual states of mental and physical being have been described by mystics, yogis, and other illuminated beings for eons.
Their descriptions of their encounters with the numinous (a Jungian term for the light filled realms of being) were, of course, expressed through the cultural filters of their time. Thus the mystical language of Christian contemplatives and mystics are, on the surface, different from their Judaic and Islamic cousins. And certainly these descriptions are even more dissimilar from their Asian counterparts—Hindu and Buddhist yogas, the Taoist alchemies of China as well as indigenous shamanism throughout the world. But beneath the surface of their apparent differences, there are deep currents of similarity.
The similarities that I am speaking of here are not related to belief, spiritual lineage, or dogma. Indeed, many spiritual traditions are in complete opposition to each other on fundamental points of dogma. In spite of these differences, there are striking commonalities in regards to the methods these mystical, yogic and shamanic disciplines employ to enter the numinous. And the alteration of perceived time—whether attained through meditative trance, contemplative prayer, drumming or chanting—is central to all these traditions.
Indeed, we could say from the standpoint of modern neurophysiology that it is through their alteration of perceived time (and its attendant changes in brain state) that all yogis, mystics, saints and shamans apprehend what they call the Divine, the Transcendent Self, the Tao, or Great Spirit (depending upon their intellectual and philosophical bent).
In other words, mystical and religious experiences occur (neurologically speaking) due to distinct changes in brain processing. Please note I am not saying that mystical experiences can be reduced to, and are the sole result of physical changes in the brain, but such experiences are definitely characterized by simultaneous events in the nervous system. This may sound like splitting hairs to some, but for those of us involved in the pursuit of scientific insight into mystical states of mind, it is crucial to be as rigorous as possible.
My personal conviction is that the numinous realms of being (i.e. mystical experience) open to us a fascinatingly rich area of human potential, but only when the imprisonment of dogma (religious and/or cultural belief) has been stripped away.
The methods used by mystics, yogis and shamans to generate altered states of consciousness—the types that lead to numinous and transpersonal experiences—have been a long-standing interest to me. I even wrote a book, Brain States, which is a guide that shows the reader how to create altered states of awareness—as a means to access the more creative potentials of his/her brain and mind.
From the standpoint of neuropsychology, channeling is just another expression of our brain/mind’s potential—albeit an unusual one.
As a psychotherapist and as someone who was involved with brain research for over ten years, I regard channelings—in general—as a type of transpersonal psycho-artifact. By this I mean that the information (or message) that comes forward through the act of channeling is born from an interface between the personal psychology and transpersonal aspects of the channel.
The Process of Channeling
Anyone who channels does so by altering his or her awareness in some manner. The result, regardless of the method used, is that the channel enters into a deeply altered state of internalized awareness (trance). For the time-period of the communication one is more or less detached, and somehow suspended from one’s normal ways of being in the world, including one’s perception of perceived time. This is a direct result of changes in brain state, i.e. an increase in alpha and theta activity on the part of the channel.
As exotic as the channeling state may sound, I believe that it is an inherent ability that most, if not all of us, possess. It is simply a matter of learning how to voluntarily change one’s own brain state.
But there is another element in the channeling phenomenon that is critical for us to understand. It is the question of “filters.” I personally don’t think that there is such a thing as a totally clear channel. We can approach being a clear and open channel, and hopefully get ever more impeccable, but the Presence or information that presents itself through the channel is somehow affected by the channel—especially by his or her emotional state, subconscious beliefs and miasmas (toxic personal distortions).
This unavoidable filtering of information by the channel is why I said earlier to always have an imaginary box by your side. If something doesn’t make sense to you, toss it in the box. Don’t accept it as truth. Test it through your own sense of logic, your own life experience and own your values.
It is my hope that those of you who read these Hathor messages will do just that. See what works for you. Toss out the rest.
One of the worst things that could happen with this type of information, in my opinion, would be to deify it in some kind of new age cultism. Instead, look at the messages simply as another perspective on our world. If the information helps you to be more resourceful and happy in how you deal with your life (as it has with mine) then this channeling stuff will have been worth the effort.
