Day Six of the Galactic Underworld and the Birth of the New Consciousness

Late Spring through the Summer of 2009 is likely to be a very difficult time nationally and internationally. If you consult Newsletter 07 you’ll notice that this period of economic collapse corresponds to what was predicted for the middle of Day Six of the Galactic Underworld, extrapolated from events for the same Day of the polarized National Underworld. We’re evidently moving into an economic collapse. Here in the U.S. there is significant danger of hyperinflation because of credit collapse, with resulting devaluation of the dollar—both nationally and internationally. The dollar is already losing status as the international currency standard, and this could seal its fate. Here in the U.S. the dollar could lose value to the point that savings and most assets are rendered useless. A number of economists and social scientists have speculated that panic and mass social unrest could easily result from more bank failures, food and oil shortages, massive unemployment, business failures, breakdown of governmental assistance programs, and consequent social outrage. These are the conditions that give rise to racial, class, and, potentially, civil war—as well as repressive solutions such as the establishment of a police state. For such an eventuality FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) has set up about 800 detention centers for the purpose of detaining agitators and the dispossessed.

The economic and social situation is even worse for most other countries, particularly in Eastern Europe and the Third World. The Czech government very recently collapsed, and it’s likely that other Eastern European governments will follow. In the Americas Mexico is on the verge of violent collapse, as are a number of Central and South American States. Anyone who can’t see that we’ve entered a global depression is simply dreaming or outright deluded.

The situation in the Middle East is dire, again based on what was predicted for the Sixth Day of our current Galactic Underworld extrapolated from the fact that the Crusades took place during the same relative time period of Day Six of the polarized National Underworld. With the election of Benjamin Netanyahu, the ultra-right wing leader of Israel’s Likud Party, this could likely portend a WWIII scenario that could engulf much of the world. Netanyahu is fixed on the destruction of Iran, and has threatened to destroy the West if the West doesn’t destroy Iran first. This threat is known as the Samson Option (or Deterrence)—named after Samson of the Old Testament who, facing sure death by the Romans, took down the Roman arena and killed the Romans who ordered his death. Martin Van Creveld, foremost Israeli military historian, said:

We possess several hundred atomic warheads and rockets and can launch them at targets in all directions, perhaps even at Rome. Most European capitals are targets for our air force…We have the capability to take the world down with us, and I can assure you that that will happen before Israel goes under.

According to Mark Glenn, correspondent of American Free Press Newspaper, Netanyahu delivered a threat to newly elected American president Obama and the Western world using his personal emissary Jeffrey Goldberg who wrote an article appearing in last month’s Atlantic magazine entitled “Netanyahu to Obama: Stop Iran—Or I Will”. This is extremely troubling as it could result in a dangerously polarized international climate—a mobilization of the Arab world and Iran, backed by Russia and perhaps China, against Israel and the United States with America’s allies. Because events are happening so fast now, we probably won’t have to wait too long to find out whether these events will transpire.

My purpose in bringing all of this up is to prevent shock and fixation on the physical plane of existence. It’s important to be aware of what’s happening in order to take necessary measures in order to take care of yourself and your loved ones. Once done, you must shift your attention to the spiritual plane. The Galactic Underworld, in particular, is about the evolution of consciousness, and not about events on the material plane per se. The understanding of the unfolding physical events is important only insofar as they provide catalyst to increase conscious awareness. Fixation on the events themselves is a trap.

In a very recent posting on the Net—The Rebirth Celebration—Carl Calleman explains:

In May 2009 a major emanation from the Hunab-Ku, an unfathomably large intelligence in the center of the universe according to Mayan Cosmology, will inform a magnificent birth of cosmic proportions. This epoch period, the Middle Point of the Sixth Day of the Galactic Underworld, gives humanity an unprecedented opportunity to cooperate with the forces of evolution to fulfill individual and collective purposes, and to create a sustainable world of harmony, abundance, and balance with Nature. As with any birth, there is also death…death of that which is no longer supported by these new evolutionary energies.

What must die for spiritual transformation to occur is our fixation on the material side of existence that rose to its apex during the materially based Planetary Underworld. This has primarily to do with the economy and the fixation on continuous economic growth, which has become a planetary cancer primarily responsible for the ecological and social disasters now confronting us. Note that the Great Depression of the Fifth Night of the Planetary Underworld (1932 to 1952) was followed by great economic growth during the Sixth Day (1952 to 1972). This created an expectation of incessant material increase. Now in the Galactic Underworld there’s been a break in the linear progression of the future from the past. Calleman noted that the severe economic downturn of the Fifth Night of our current Underworld (November 19, 2007 to November 13 2008) was not followed by a period of escalating economic growth during the Sixth Day (November 13, 2008 to November 8, 2009), but rather by an escalating economic collapse. This is because the purpose of the Galactic Underworld is radically different from that of the Planetary. In fact the global economy may NEVER recover, because the Divine Plan requires economic collapse for our survival and the breakage of our bondage to materiality. Calleman states:

What then is there to do in this situation one may ask? If the economy will never start to grow again, what will emerge in its place? Many realize that what needs to happen is a transition to a sustainable economy, something that humanity has not experienced for some 5000 years. This would mean a return to a non-dualist Garden of Eden in balance with the environment at a new and higher level, a transition that many will probably find very difficult and almost incomprehensible to grasp mentally speaking. We may for instance take note of the fact that no world leader or economist is currently advocating a shift to an economy that is sustainable. So far, few have even started to consider that there will be no upturn in the economy, and when this starts to dawn on people we may come in fact to witness all kinds of actions of desperation and social unrest taking somewhat different forms in different cultures. Many hierarchical structures are likely to collapse.

Day Six of the Galactic Underworld is ruled by the Goddess of Birth. What is being born now is a completely new consciousness and reality that is a nonlinear break from the past. You may re-read Newsletter 04 to gain a deeper understanding of this concept. The Old Way is rapidly dying in order that the New Way can be born. Essentially, Day Six marks the demarcation between one reality and another. This doesn’t refer to a transition. It’s a quantum leap. And thinking it’s a transition will cause you to get stuck in the past.

I’m speaking here of the death of the ego and all it represents. With regard to this it’s essential to study your own Enneagram type and practice the exercises discussed in the last two Newsletters. You must also practice being more conscious of your effects on others and the environment. The Internet article Calleman wrote on the Rebirth Celebration has another article connected with it called, The Inner Dimensions of Cosmic Rebirth; The ecology of choice and transformation in a rapidly changing world by Joseph R. Giove in which he states:

Those who focus on what’s falling away, melting, dissolving—on what is no longer supported by the new evolutionary energies—may become despondent, fearful, scarce in their thinking, jealous of opportunities, possessive of their resources, and mindless to the consequences of their actions on others and on the environment. This is the very behavior that is no longer supported by the underlying evolutionary impulses. Any system of a personal, social, economic, political, educational, commercial, or medical nature that was based on features of scarcity, separatism, greed, domination, control, imbalance, force, conflict, etc. have lost their energetic foundation and are dissolving back into the void as we speak. Amen and respectfully, good riddance.

The new evolutionary energies are supporting the creation of systems based on collaboration, harmony, equality and interconnectedness. Alignment with these will manifest an Enlightened World Order, distinct from the elitist/fascistic “New” World Order currently attempting to enslave the world in a neo-feudalistic nightmare. Giove cautions:

However, being focused on the dissolution of old systems may blind us to these new emergent properties and to the magical nature of our times. This blindfoldedness will inevitably disempower us and prohibit our eyes-wide-open involvement. It will stop us from asking pertinent questions, the answers of which will ignite our own personal fulfillment and purpose now. Questions like: What are the characteristics of this new evolutionary wave that is impinging on my inner nature? What is the deeper meaning of global warming, economics, increasing novelty and accelerating time from an interior, self-reflective point of view…the “inner ecology” of personal transformation? How can I best serve this unfoldment for my personal and community welfare? How can I quicken my own alignment with these new and exciting transformational energies being released upon the planet now?

The Meaning of Key XIII of the Qabalistic Tarot: Death

Death and birth have always been inextricably bound in the perennial philosophy of the Ancient Wisdom. Death is the agent of change. The Old Way must die so that the New Way may be born. Without death there would be no transformation. Thus, death is essential for life and growth. The following is a somewhat lengthy quotation from Paul Foster Case’s The Tarot that very precisely explains the meaning and purpose of Day Six of the Galactic Underworld. Case explains:

What Ageless Wisdom has always declared is that everything works together for freedom and for good, to them that love God. Modern science begins to conform this ancient intuition by showing us that no force or law of the universe is inimical to man, or an obstacle to his freedom. To love God is not to go into silly ecstasies of emotional adoration for a personal Deity. Love is the fruit of understanding; and when we understand that the One life which finds expression in the order of the heavens of which our world-system is a part is a life working always toward the liberation of mankind we advance from the fear of the Lord which is only the beginning of wisdom into the recognition of the perfect beauty of the order of which we are a part. This perfect love casts out fear, and with the coming of this deeper understanding comes freedom from fear of death.

It is by death that social changes for the better come to pass. Old ideas pass away with the death of the persons who hold them. New ideas gain currency as the new generation comes to maturity. Thus the actual fact of death is an instrument of progress. And now the time is close at hand when man shall master the secret of death itself.

Psychologically, the emphasis falls on imagination. Change your ideas and your old conception of personality dies. Every few years you have a new body, made up of trillions of tiny beings, or cells. Change your intellectual patterns, and with the passing away of the current generation of cells new ones will come to take their places. In the mental nucleus of each tiny cell, implanted there by subconscious response to your new patterns, will be an impulse to realize the new thought in body-structure, in function, and in external action.

If your patterns be built in accordance with the ideas developed through the Tarot series, and culminating in the self-surrender pictured by the Hanged Man, it will lead to a complete transformation of your personality. The “old man” dies. One who arrives at this state can say with St. Paul, “I die daily.” Every morning becomes a resurrection to the awakened soul. All the old motives, all the petty ambitions, all the foolish opinions and prejudices gradually die out, as the cells which carry them are eliminated in the ordinary course of body repair.

Thus, little by little, there comes a complete readjustment of ones personal conceptions of life and its values. The change from the personal to the universal viewpoint is so radical that mystics often compare it to death. They are more literal than most readers suppose. It is by the death and reproduction of body-cells that patterns created by imagination are finally fixed in personal consciousness. Then it is that we may truly declare, “The Kingdom of Spirit is embodied in my flesh.”

Handling Death in the Birth Process

It’s not that we simply allow the old attitudes, behavior patterns, and destructive relationships to die in order for birth of the new way to proceed. What we need to die holds onto us. We are attached to all of this through the ego, and to break these attachments requires knowledge, effort, and persistence. The motivation to do this work derives from the knowledge of what will happen to us if we don’t. We’re under great time pressure to do the work we must, as the breakdown of the Old Way is accelerating more and more as we proceed through the Sixth Day.

Not only must we do this for ourselves, we must also be of service to those who are struggling to detach from the dysfunctions within themselves. Concurrently, we must detach from those who insist on holding onto the ways that are destructive to our progress—and this may include family members, friends, and other intimates who are in opposition to or threatened by the path we are on. As difficult as this may be the alternative is much worse. No one does the difficult work of transformation because it seems like a “good idea”. We do it because we must.

Aligning with others who are also doing the work is important. It’s simply too had to do it in isolation. Working with others in the cooperative effort of birthing a new reality is very much in line with Divine will. Cooperative effort increases the power of the morphogenetic field of transformation, thus empowering our own efforts and providing support for those in the early stages of the process. It allows us to link more closely to others who have the same intention—regardless of where they physically live on the planet.

The Higher Levels of Transmutation

The alchemical principle underlying transmutation involves the conversion of unrefined “substance” into a form that is more refined and spiritually evolved. In Eastern spiritual philosophy the lotus is used as an example of this process. The lotus has its roots embedded in mud and all manner of rotting organic material. Through a series of biochemical transmutations it uses this unrefined material to feed the beautiful flower that floats atop the water. It’s also important to conceptualize negativity as sustenance, the raw material for the flowering of higher awareness. By doing this you demonstrate that it is very useful, and not simply something to be gotten rid of.

The lotus serves as a metaphor for the transmutation of negative, gross, and unrefined emotionality and pleasures into the higher spiritual Flow and the state of Nirvana through observation and the detachment of thought. This was the focus of earlier Newsletters wherein negative emotions, compulsions, and desires were focused upon with an attitude of detachment so that their forms could be dissolved into joyful/blissful flow. In this way suffering is transmuted into joy.

As you proceed with your spiritual practice you’ll find that your ability to transmute negativity occurs at an accelerated rate. Sometimes only a moment’s observation and non-resistance of the negative condition coupled with detachment of thought is sufficient to transmute a heavy emotional state into a light and peaceful one. You’ll also develop the ability to the work of spiritual transmutation while engaged in your everyday life and activities, and not just when you’re sitting quietly alone.

Transmutation of Collective Negativity

If you’ve been diligently practicing transmutation of personal negativity for some time you may find that the amount and/or intensity of negativity you’re aware of increases. This can be quite discouraging if you’re unaware that you’re beginning to process negativity from the collective. The same method of transmutation is used to handle individual and collective negativity, but it takes much more focus and intention to deal on the collective level. Although more difficult there’s a great advantage to working on the collective level. In addition to providing the important service of reducing human negativity, your own rate of spiritual evolution dramatically increases. The collapse of the economic system of the Old Way can be used as a powerful catalytic opportunity for just this, as does the recent outbreak or swine flu and the potential for pandemic. In the next section we’ll examine the potential pandemic that threatens us and look at how it can individually and collectively strengthen us. You can re-read Newsletters 07 and 08 that address the Depopulation Program in order to gain a broader perspective on the global eugenics movement, bio-terrorism and bio-weapons.

The research I’ve done over the last decade strongly suggests that a number of diseases, such as AIDS, are man-made for the purposes of bio-terrorism and depopulation. None of this is news because it’s been going on for decades (see Newsletters 07 and 08). It’s quite likely that the current potential swine flu (H1N1) is no exception.

If you want to know what something is for, simply look at what it does. Given that the swine flu, which seemed to materialize out of thin air, serves the purpose of creating great fear suggests that this flu may be designed to, in addition to stimulating depopulation fears reminiscent of the 1918 swine flu pandemic, accelerate world wide economic collapse. The international markets, in fact, are reacting quite adversely to the current situation—which is fanned by the media to create pandemic fear more than anything else. It also serves the purpose of making martial law more acceptable in order to contain the social chaos that would occur. I don’t believe that this current potential pandemic is the beginning of the planetary depopulation program, but rather serves as a “pre-conditioning” device for what’s designed for the Sixth Night of the Galactic Underworld and correlates with the events of the same Night of the National Underworld. These predictions are addressed in Newsletter 07.

As of now the collective fear is quite strong and will likely increase as time goes on. Because of our inherent interconnectedness you will feel it. But this doesn’t mean that you have to be at the mercy of it. You can transmute it into Flow and use it for your advantage, as well as for the advantage for those closest to you and, to a lesser extent, for the entire human collective. You can also teach the technique of transmutation to any who are willing to learn, and thereby minimize the deleterious effects of fear on the psyche and body.

Slavery to fear is our greatest enemy. Not only does it divide us and set us against each other, it promotes the soul-deadening submission to authoritarian control that we see when people huddle together and are willing to trade their essential freedom for the illusion of safety. Thus, when the “authorities” say you should be immunized against a possible pandemic flu outbreak most will comply. This could be very dangerous when you consider the historical data regarding contaminated vaccines used for the purpose of depopulation. Consider the following quotations from put out on the Net on March 3, 2009 entitled, Vaccines as Biological Weapons? Live Avian Flu Virus Placed in Baxter Vaccine Materials Sent to 18 Countries:

Deerfield, Illinois-based pharmaceutical Baxter International Inc. has just been caught shipping live avian flu viruses mixed with vaccine material to distributors in 18 countries. The “mistake”…was discovered by the National Microbiology Laboratory in Canada. The World Health Organization was alerted and panic spread throughout the vaccine community as health experts asked the obvious question: How could this have happened?

As published on LifeGen de (http// serious questions like these are being raised:

“Baxter International Inc. in Austria ‘unintentionally’ contaminated samples with the bird flu virus that were used in laboratories in three neighboring countries, raising concern about the potential spread of the deadly disease: Austria, Germany, Slovenia, and the Czech Republic- these were the countries in which labs were hit with dangerous viruses. Not by bioterrorist commandos but by Baxter. In other words: One of the major pharmaceutical players seems to have lost control over a virus which is considered by many virologists to be one of the components leading someday to a new pandemic.”

Was the viral contamination intentional?

The shocking answer is that this couldn’t have been an accident. Why? Because Baxter International adheres to something called BSL3 (Biosafety Level 3- a set of laboratory safety protocols that prevent the cross-contamination of materials.

This leaves only two possibilities: 1) Baxter isn’t following the BSL3 safety guidelines and are doing sloppy work, or 2) the live avian flu viruses were intentionally placed into the vaccine materials. With regard to #2, a global bird flu pandemic could be financially motivated:

It just so happens that a global flu pandemic would sell a Lot of bird flu vaccines. Although some naïve people have a hard time believing that corporations would endanger human beings to make money, this is precisely how corporations now behave in America’s ethically challenged free-market environment. (Remember Enron? Exxon? Merck? DuPont? Monsanto? Need I go on?)…

There is some speculation, in fact, that the 1918 influenza pandemic, which killed up to 50 million people worldwide was intentionally started by injecting servicemen with “experimental” flu vaccines that actually contained live “weaponized” flu material just like the material being distributed by Baxter today.

Examine the historical record. You’ll find the 1918 flu originated with servicemen. Even more interestingly, it began in multiple cities simultaneously. There is no single point of origin with the 1918 flu. It appears to have “spontaneously” sprung up among multiple cities all at once, including a military base in Kansas…All those cities and servicemen have one thing in common: Flu shot vaccinations given to them by the military.

If you put the pieces together on this, it’s not too difficult to suspect that influenza could potentially be used as a tool of control by governments or drug companies to catalyze outrageous profit-taking or power grabbing agendas. A desperate infected population will gladly give up anything or pay anything for the promise of being cured.

In an Internet article specifically relating the current swine flu to the 1918 pandemic (…) James Scott, a professor at University of Toronto’s Dalla Lana School of Public Health and an expert in the airborne movement of germs verified that the swine virus is the same type as the 1918 strain. The current flu virus emerged in the U.S. in Kansas and Queens, New York—the same as the 1918 flu.

In another Internet article—Swine Flu Epidemic and Avianized Flu Pandemic- Recombinant Preparedness Alert 4/26/09— Dr. Bill Deagle states evidence for the laboratory origins of the current swine flu:

The swine flu is common in the agribusiness, and antibodies to swine flu are present in 20% of veterinarians and 5% of pig farm workers, and rarely kills pigs. However, this swine flu that has presented in Mexico, Texas, California, Queens NYC, London, Italy, etc. has genes of swine, avian, human, and Asian flu. This is without doubt a pandemic flu with a current case fatality estimated at 10% plus, and rapidly is leaping across North America and Europe. Since 1997, the H5N1 flu has spread to all continents. Genetics showed that six strains had high pathogenic case rates in humans, with some clusters of human to human spread, with close physical contact…Until Fall 2008, the avian flu did not optimally replicate unless it was at 106 degrees or higher, but now it has acquired the capacity to replicate easily at 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit. Drug resistance to Amantadine, Tamiflu are also the predominant strains…This is a “Lab Creation”. The article goes on to say:

Human Life International invited Dr. Bill Deagle MD to speak in March 1997 to the International Board of Doctors and Scientists. After my two-hour talk, the board sat me down for a presentation of a foot of documents. Included were three distinct biological programs. The first was a plasmid anti-HCG contaminated Tetanus Vaccine, to cause first trimester sterility by spontaneous miscarriage in the target populations of Subsaharan Africa, Phillipines, and other target WHO UN high density population countries. The second program was the US Special Virus Project, with mycoplasma RNA oncogenic viruses to cause immune failure, and premature death. It was known as the AIDS syndrome, and was a recombinant of Visna, Green Monkey and Feline leuekemia retro-RNA viruses carried by host mycobacteria. Most important was the large packet of Avian Flu Project, funded by the Rothschilds and overseen by the WHO and UN. They were in process of obtaining gene fragments from deceased whalers in Alaska with the CDC and National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease, supercomputer and bioengineered resurrection of the 1918 Swine Flu. They planned to insert into the genome Avian genes and spray into Asian bird populations, which would later be a gene pool when the spread was complete to all continents for a new Swine-Avian Flu pandemic. We now see the H1N1 flu in Mexico, Canada, UK, Italy, USA and perhaps other countries evolving rapidly. This wave is quite lethal, but with the H5N1 genetics in the wild, it is likely to come in future waves with yet more lethal genes and more rapid spread. Certainly in the next 7 days, the presence in multiple countries, US Pandemic Flu Alert, WHO raised from 3rd to 4th level, and the pronouncements for a decade plus of Pandemic Flu. This was totally a UN WHO plot to release a virus that would cull the human herd. Martial law will come with this or future waves in the next several months. This is the Final End Game of the Global Elite, to fulfill Global 2000, NSSM 1974 population threat alerts, and 1996 UN population control documents, all calling for massive reduction in world human populations. Last week the UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown called for a reduction from 60 to 30 million.

If you’re interested in investigating this material further I suggest you read the relevant Internet material presented by Rebecca Carley, MD. Dr. Carley has done a great deal of work in researching and responsibly presenting this subject.

Accelerated Polarization

If you go on the Internet and read the channeled works of Tom Kenyon you’ll find some very illuminating articles that dove-tail with Calleman’s writings on the Mayan Calendar as well as a number of other writers who deal with the psycho-spiritual evolution of humanity. Most of these individuals are in agreement that we are currently experiencing, and will continue to experience in the next few years, major catalytic events designed to accelerate human evolution in a very dramatic fashion.

His recent channeling dated January 28, 2009, The Holon of Ascension, states:

You are about to enter a highly volatile period, full of extraordinary potential, yet fraught with hazards…In March last year we indicated that your earth’s magnetic field was experiencing perturbations and morphing, or changing of its configuration. Your science has discovered that this is, in fact, a reality.

NASA’s Dr. Tony Phillips wrote an Internet article in SCIENCE@NASA stating:

Dec. 16, 2008: NASA’s five THEMIS space craft have discovered a breach in Earth’s magnetic field ten times larger than anything previously thought to exist. Solar wind can flow in through the opening to “load up” the magnetosphere for powerful geomagnetic storms…

The magnetosphere is a bubble of magnetism that surrounds Earth and protects us from solar wind. Exploring the bubble is a key goal of the THEMIS mission, launched in February 2007. The big discovery came on June 3, 2007, when the five probes serendipitously flew through the breach just as it was opening. Onboard sensors recorded a torrent of solar wind particles streaming into the magnetosphere, signaling an event of unexpected size and importance…

The event began with little warning when a gentle gust of solar wind delivered a bundle of magnetic fields from the Sun to Earth. Like an octopus wrapping its tentacles around a big clam, solar magnetic fields draped themselves around the magnetosphere and cracked it open. The cracking was achieved by a process called “magnetic reconnection”. High above Earth’s poles, solar and terrestrial magnetic fields linked up (reconnected) to form conduits for solar wind. Conduits over the Artic and Antarctic quickly expanded; within minutes they overlapped over Earth’s equator to create the biggest magnetic breach ever recorded by Earth-orbiting spacecraft.

The breach in the magnetosphere has significant technological, social, physiological, and psycho-spiritual consequences. Because we’re currently at what’s known as a “solar minimum”—or low sunspot activity—the severity of the consequences of the magnetosphere breach are not yet apparent. During 2010 and 2011, however, scientists at NASA expect to see the increased sunspot activity of “solar maximum” to be well underway—and with it powerful solar storms.

Technological Consequences of Solar Maximum

The breach in the magnetosphere will allow increased solar plasma (solar wind), to impact the Earth, as well as increase the impact of solar storms. Add to this the impact of an increase in sunspot activity of from 30 to 50 percent we have a situation that guarantees a technological catastrophe. NASA’s Dr. Tony Phillips states in an Internet article put up Jan. 10, 2008 entitled, Solar Cycle 24:

The onset of a new solar cycle is significant because of our increasingly space-based technological society.

Solar storms can disable satellites that we depend on for weather forecasts and GPS navigation,” says David Hathaway of the Marshall Space Flight Center…Radio bursts from solar flares can directly interfere with cell phone reception while coronal mass ejections (CMEs) hitting Earth can cause electrical power outages. The most famous example is the Quebec outage of 1989, which left some Canadians without power for as much as six days.

Air travel can be affected, too.

Every year, intercontinental flights carry thousands of passengers over Earth’s poles. It’s the shortest distance between, say, New York and Tokyo or Beijing and Chicago. In 1999, United Airlines made just twelve trips over the Arctic. By 2005, the number of flights had ballooned to 1,402. Other airlines report similar growth.

“Solar storms have a big effect on polar regions of our planet,” says Steve Hill of the Space Weather Prediction Center. “When airplanes fly over the poles during solar storms, they can experience radio blackouts, navigation errors and computer reboots all caused by space radiation.”

As solar maximum is approached, coupled with the breach in the magnetosphere, we can also expect climate changes—because the effective level of coronal radiation is increased. It’s likely that this will result in greater global warming.

Social Consequences of Solar Maximum

The major disruption of the electrical grid, telecommunication systems, and satellites has far-reaching effects because of our dependency on these systems. When the grid is disabled everything that depends on electricity is disabled—water pumping, heating, air conditioning and refrigeration, communication systems dependent on electricity, and food distribution to name a few. The disabling of telecommunication systems renders emergency services, such as police and fire, disabled, along with cell phones, computers, black berries, TV and radio, gas pumps, security systems, coordination of food distribution, as well as other essentials. Likewise, the disruption of satellites has far-reaching consequences for the integration of all of the above and, addition, military functions. There are, of course, many other disruptive consequences.

The net effect of all of this is likely to be social chaos and accelerated economic collapse. Just imagine what will happen when communication systems break down. There’s little question that a police state will be activated. FEMA already has such plans in place to quell rioting, looting, and open rebellion.

Physiological Consequences of Solar Maximum

Because the human body is a bioelectrical system we’ll also feel the effects of the out-pouring of plasma for Solar Cycle 24. As bio-electrical systems are charged up most people will experience this as surges of nervous energy. Those who are prepared for this, however, will experience these surges as a significant enhancement of human abilities.

Michael Scalla, Ph.D., writing for the Honolulu Exopolitics Examiner (from The Examiner Website) reported on the Internet, February 26, 2009, that:

The human nervous system is made up of billions of neurons that communicate information to one another and the body’s trillions of cells. Robert Becker, in The Body Electric, revealed that neurons transmit information through tiny electrical signals that are very sensitive to the electrical environment. This is why living near electrical transmission wires can be very damaging to the body’s sensitive bio-electrical systems.

Similarly, large electrical discharges or shocks can severely disrupt the human body.

The precise effect of a tremendous increase in solar plasma energy in the Earth’s electrical environment upon the nervous system is unknown. Its effect on human relations and society is even less known. It can be predicted, however, that the surge in electrical energy on the planet and human bioelectrical systems will directly influence relations and communications between people…

During waking time, we typically operate using two brain wave states.

• Beta is where our brain’s electrical signals operate between 14-40 cycles per second or Hertz (Hz) and represents a state of high mental activity typically associated with stress.
• Alpha brain wave states operate at 7.5-14 cycles per second and represent a relaxed state of mind.

Lower brain wave states, Theta (4-7.5 Hz and Delta (0.5-4) are physically inactive states such as deep meditation or sleep.

The highest recorded brain wave state, Gamma (40+Hz), represents bursts of insight and has been increasingly observed in the use of higher cognitive abilities by children.

As plasma energy pours into the Earth, people’s brain wave states will be affected.

For some, this might be experienced as communications and interactions becoming more intense as more beta brain wave activity takes place. An analogy would be someone who has lived all their life in a relaxed small town in the American mid-West, suddenly being transported to a busy New York City.

Alternately, others may find that their body lacks vitality due to a rapid build up of static electricity in the Earth’s environment.

Those able to express the body’s increased nervous energy in constructive ways will find it much easier to start and complete projects they previously put on the back burner of life. The ability to switch between Gamma and Alpha brain wave states will lead to greater creative insight as individuals need to calmly respond to a more challenging socio-economic environment. The key to benefiting from increased Gamma brain wave activity is to keeping a positive and open mind where new insights are integrated.

Once the brain’s higher cognitive skills come on line, then it’s vital to be able to calmly integrate new insights into our lives.

By having an open mind and having a positive outlook individuals are most likely to succeed in dealing with the solar waves pouring through the giant hole of the Earth’s magnetosphere.

They will be prepared for the rapid increase in plasma energy that will increase levels of electricity in the environment, and alters human bioelectric systems and brain wave patterns.

Individuals who adequately prepare themselves will literally become solar wave riders able to ride the waves of incoming solar energy to higher levels of creativity and fulfillment.

This subject will be discussed in greater depth in the next section of this Newsletter.

One last item in this section relates to solar radiation-induced reproductive dysfunction and birth defects. In an abstract of a 2004 research paper by Davis and Lowell published by the US National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health, the authors state:

The sun is a dynamical system and although solar cycles occur every 8-14 years (averaging approximately 11.1 years), the authors show that 28% of these cycles exhibit chaotic features and irregularly release up to 300% more ultraviolet radiation than usual. These chaotic cycles create an environment mutagenic to DNA that must be largely avoided in order to pass uncorrupted genes to the next generation. This requirement sets the limits of fertility, e.g., menarche and menopause in humans, and sets longevity to approximately 100 years.

Thus the sun’s radiation during a solar maximum is likely to cause a great number of birth defects. In addition we can expect cancer and a number of other diseases to precipitously rise. This would be analogous to living near multiple overhead or underground power lines, or next to a leaky nuclear power plant. The consequences for the next generation would be profound. Also, coronal radiation would have profound effects on the postnatal proliferation and development of streams of brain cells known to enter into parts of the brain that control adult emotional behavior and immune system function.

Psycho-Spiritual Consequences of Solar Maximum

In a channeled work of Tom Kenyon called The Holon of Ascension, in discussing the breach in the magnetosphere (Internet, January 28, 2009), writes:

It (the breach) is allowing, and will allow, large volumes of the sun to enter. This will increase magnetic storms, disruption of telecommunications, disruptions in bioelectric circuitry (such as human nervous systems), and climate change. The results of this breach and the increased charging of the magnetosphere will increase over the next several years.

Our focus in this communication is not upon the negative impacts of this breach, but upon the positive effects it opens for those who are ready.

Your subtle energy body, which was known as the KA by the ancient Egyptians and called the etheric body by the Yogis, is highly sensitive to, and affected by solar plasma. An increase in the flow and quality of solar streams increases the vibratory rate of the KA body. This is a very beneficial and auspicious opportunity for those who are consciously participating in their ascension process. Let us be precise by what we mean by the term ascension, because it has many different connotations and ways of being viewed.

By ascension we simply mean a movement upward in consciousness…You begin to see through the maya, or illusion of this world, which is created through the dance of subatomic particles and into a configuration of what you call matter. Through the ascension process you realize that you are the creator of your experience of that which you call “the world”. It does not mean that you leave this world, but it does mean that you transcended it – while still being a part of it – for you see through the lens of perception that life is a movie that you are projecting.

One could say that you are at a crossroads. As the solar streams enter into your magnetosphere, the KA bodies of all humans will increase in vibration. But for some, this will lead to disturbances and dissolution, while for others it will lead to ascension – a movement upward in consciousness.

This communication is specifically for those individuals who have chosen the upward spiral. Your challenge in these times is to allow the activation of your KA body to move you upward, even as many around you seem to be spiraling downward. It is, essentially, a question of vibration, joined with expectation and belief. It is the union of these three that births the creative impulse for a new destiny.

What do we mean by this?

It takes tremendous energy to transcend or transmute a negative condition or limitation that has been placed upon one. You have been collectively hypnotized into a view of reality that is fixed, confined, limiting, and nothing short of imprisonment. When you see through the lies and the manipulations, the old world does not look the same and yet the perception of the lies does not free one from them. They have a life of their own and a tendency to continue. It takes new energy – an increased vibratory rate – to overcome the lethargy and inertia that are intrinsic to your cultural limitations. This is a gift of the solar streams – the solar plasma that is flowing and will flow in greater quantities into your magnetosphere – for they will increase the vibratory rate of your KA body.

But here is the “cross-hair, shall we say, in “the sight” of your destiny. For those of you who accept, or are at least beginning to see through the lies and manipulations that have been imposed upon you and have made a choice to move upward into the ascension process, this activation of the KA body is a beautiful, exquisite miracle to behold, for your life will be graced with the power to transcend your own limitations in ways that have not be available to you before. It shall be as if the cosmos itself is joining you in the dance of your freedom.

But for those who do not choose to live upward in consciousness – who choose to remain imprisoned by the limitations, who seek to blame others for their misfortune, who choose to find scapegoats for their lack of happiness, for those who insist on living the old world of conflict – this increased vibration of their KA body will not be a blessing; it will be experienced as a curse. Because they will have to work very hard to keep things the way they are…

From our perspective, we see this situation escalating over the next several years, and we would characterize it as a dual state in which many of you will ascend, meaning move upward, while others will move into dissolution, a falling apart. This is, essentially, based on personal choice.

This is a very important point, for us, and we wish to convey it with as much clarity as possible. Each of you has the response-ability to choose the thoughts and the creations you desire. Some of you will choose freedom – because you cannot stand being contained any longer – the lies are too great a burden to perpetuate. Others of you will choose imprisonment – for the fear of freedom and the responsibility for personal choice is too much to bear.

This is a split in the road of evolution.

As your realities simultaneously dissolve and re-create themselves, and by that we refer to the economic challenges you are facing, and the ecological and social challenges you are facing some of you may experience very difficult times. But never lose sight of the fact that you are the creator of your life, and you can re-create it at any moment, regardless of the circumstances. Those who manipulate you do so through fear and perpetuation of cultural limitations – the belief that your life is dependent upon certain external factors.

What you will discover in the ascension process is that these external factors are actually projections from your own deepest consciousness. They are flickers on a movie screen, and you can change them in mind-bending quickness when you change them from the source rather than the effect, and the source is your very mind itself.

It’s important to understand that the breach in the magnetosphere only sets the stage for the massive changes under discussion. The driving force behind them is the progressive increase in solar energy impinging on our planet as we approach solar maximum. Thus 2010 - 2012 will be a great catalyst for transcendence for those who are doing the work and a great catalyst for dissolution and insanity for those who are attempting to hold onto the old way of egoic domination.

“Doing the work” means clearing the etheric body of old emotional reaction patterns that comprise the pain-body, sub-personalities, and mechanisms of control and being right derived from your Enneagram ego-type. The methods of doing this have been discussed in prior Newsletters. Of particular significance is the method of transmutation—rather than acting on negative emotions, you can transmute them to positive Flow. This takes practice, and you must start NOW if you have not already done so. There’s no time to waste in useless pursuits and ego gratifications. You must examine the sanity of your goals. If they aren’t in line with, or are opposed to, spiritual evolvement you’re not just wasting precious time. You’re putting yourself in extreme jeopardy. This isn’t a dress rehearsal. It’s the real thing, and only you can determine whether you survive and evolve or not. The higher spiritual beings who have gone before us have placed our destiny in our own hands. It’s now incumbent upon us to choose our destinies through our own efforts.

Dealing With Spiritual Polarization in Relationships

The most difficult challenge, and spiritual test, the majority of people will encounter is facing and dealing with polarization in relationships. What do you do with parents, spouses, lovers, children, and friends who choose to remain locked in the old way of ego domination? The first step is to know what you are dealing with. Toward this end you need to have a way of assessing how each significant individual in your life affects you and your goal of spiritual growth.

During the late 1970s through the mid-1980s I taught a seminar called The Technology of Change. One of the main topics was what I called “toxic people and relationships” for which I devised a chart to help individuals identify people who had destructive effects on their lives. The following is a refinement of that chart.

Assessment Chart

Down the left-hand side of the chart make a vertical list of the significant people in your life. Draw a vertical line in the middle of the chart from the top to the bottom. On the top of the left-hand side of the chart write, “Contributing to My Survival and Spiritual Growth.” Under this make three more headings, “High”, “Medium”, and “Low”. You’ll be selecting one of these, and under this you’ll indicate how each is contributing. Now, on top of the right-hand side of the chart write, “Detracting From My Survival and Spiritual Growth.” Under this make three more headings, “High”, “Medium” and “Low”. You’ll be selecting one of these for each person as well, and indicating how each person is detracting. When you’re done you’ll have the level and type of contribution and the level and type of detraction for each person on your list.

What you’ll discover is that those individuals who are both high detractors and high contributors are the most difficult people in your life. This category is akin to someone who feeds and poisons you at the same time. They create what’s known as an “approach-avoidance conflict” which a great deal of psychological research has confirmed to be the source of a great psychological stress and mental/emotional breakdown. These are individuals who are typically masters of guilt manipulation. Continued association with these individuals is highly destructive to both your survival and spiritual growth.

Medium detractor/contributors pose a similar, but lesser, problem—and those who are low detractors/contributors are even less problematic. Thus, when detraction and contribution are evenly balanced we have the condition of an approach-avoidance conflict, and this creates more difficulties than the other combinations. Those who are medium detractors and high contributors, therefore, are easier to deal with.
For each combination of contribution/detraction isolate the element or elements that cause contribution and detraction. Decide whether the contribution really serves you, and to what extent the detraction compromises your survival and spiritual growth—regardless of what the other person thinks. Ask yourself whether the relationship is worth keeping. With respect to this you must honestly face the facts, regardless of the nature of the relationship.

Presenting the Facts

First of all, you must be clear on the facts before you can present them to the other person. This is the most difficult step. You must talk about yourself only, and must be very clear how the detracting element or elements compromise you. You can express your gratitude for the person’s contribution, but be very clear that this doesn’t excuse or justify the detraction. Be specific with what you are no longer willing to deal with, despite the contributions. Whether or not the individual is capable or willing to delete the detractions is completely up to that person. If that person is willing to eliminate the detracting factor or factors, you may be able to maintain the relationship. Don’t expect change immediately. These are usually long standing habits. If that person values the relationship with you enough to try, you can help by pointing out when detraction occurs. When you do this the other will either work on changing, resist changing, verbally attack, or simply go away. Anything short of a commitment to change is not acceptable.
