The 22 Sacred Paths of Yoga (or “Union with God”)

30 12 2010

The 22 Sacred Paths of Yoga
By Dr Joshua David Stone

The purpose of this chapter is to give you a brief overview of the sacred paths of yoga. To begin this discussion it is important to understand that “Yoga” means “union with God.” There are, however, many ways that this can be achieved. I will attempt to describe them briefly. These are:

Hatha Yoga
Taraka Yoga
Karma Yoga
Yantra Yoga
Bhakti Yoga
Eco Yoga
Jnana Yoga
Sabda or Nada Yoga
Kriya Yoga
Mansa Yoga
Laya Yoga
Siddha Yoga
Kundalini Yoga
Sankirtan Yoga
Asparsha Yoga
Lambika Yoga
Ashtanga Yoga
Siva Yoga
Agni Yoga
Mantra Yoga
Yoga of Synthesis
Trinity Yoga

In my first book, “The Complete Ascension “, I spoke of the seven root races that make up our current world cycle and the yogas that were focused upon during these time periods. I will briefly review this here.

(1) Polarian, (2) Hyperborean, and (3) Lemurian – Hatha Yoga
(4) Atlantean – Bhakti Yoga
(5) Aryan – Raja Yoga
(6) Meruvian – Agni Yoga or Ashtanga Yoga
(7) Paradisian – Unknown

These might be considered the major paths of yoga and there are many minor paths and off shoots of these. These are major because Hatha Yoga correlates with the physical yoga. Bhakti with the emotionally focused yoga. Raja with the mentally focused yoga.

All different paths of yoga might be considered as spokes on a wheel with God in the center. They all lead to the same place. I, personally, practice what might be termed a yoga of synthesis that integrates all the yogas and extracts the best and finest teachings from all of them.

Raja Yoga
It has been said that the purpose of Hatha yoga is to make Raja yoga possible. Raja yoga cannot be achieved without the training of Hatha yoga and Bhakti yoga, for that matter. Raja yoga is the yoga of the Aryan age. It is for this reason it is the yoga that deals with the controlling and concentrating of the mind, which is the main lesson of this current root race. It is through the concentration of the mind that man gains knowledge and mastery of all things.

There are fifteen main steps to Raja yoga. These are as follows:

  1. Abstinence
  2. Observance (“I am the principle of all things, the Brahman.”)
  3. Renunciation
  4. Silence
  5. Solitude
  6. Proper use of time.
  7. Postures
  8. Root contraction (Mula-bandha)
  9. Strengthening of the body
  10. The straightening of the body
  11. Spiritual sight
  12. Breath control
  13. Pratyhara – “Seeing Divinity in all perceptible forms brings delight to the mind and its faculties. Know this as the withdrawal which should be practiced every moment.”
  14. Contemplation – “The one changeless thought, ’I am the principle, the Brahman’, with no other notion, is known under the name of contemplation and is the giver of supreme bliss.” – The Upanishads.
  15. Identification – “When the very notion of contemplation is forgotten, this is known as identification.” – The Upanishads

The term Raja yoga means royal yoga. It refers, specifically, to the yoga system of Patanjali. For an in-depth study of the teachings of Raja Yoga I would guide you to the other chapter in this book on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.

I have personally found Patanjali’s teachings to be some of the most profound I have ever studied. It is a system of study that I find very similar to “The Course in Miracles” in some ways. The only difference is that it was written over 5000 years ago. Raja yoga is especially important to study now because of the period of history of this planet in which we are living.

Hatha Yoga
This school of yoga was the form focused upon in the Lemurian epoch of our history. It is a yoga focused upon physical purification and training. Its goal is to bring the physical body into a perfect state of physical health, so the soul may have a fitting vehicle of expression to work through.

There are many practices, including physical yoga postures and breathing exercises which also act upon the physical nervous system and etheric body which is considered a corollary aspect of the physical body. Hatha Yoga also helps to bring the vital energies of the physical and etheric body under control.

As one can see, this is an indispensable yoga for every person to practice on some level and is intimately tied together with passing the first initiation which has to do with physical mastery.

The word “Hatha” actually means the conjunction of the sun and the moon. It is this physical balance of these macrocosmic and microcosmic principles that must be balanced within the human body. There are five main steps in the process of Hatha Yoga. These are:

    • Abstinence
    • Observance
    • Sitting postures
    • Breath control
    • Non-attachment to possessions

Hatha Yoga also teaches many muscular contractions which are called bandhas and physical gestures that are called mudras. It also teaches the science of Pratyahara which has to do with learning to withdraw the senses from external objects, which is truly the key to effective meditation.

If you would like to learn more about Hatha Yoga there are many wonderful books on the market. Two books in particular, I would recommend, are, “The Practice of yoga” by Swami Sivananda, and a second book called, “Yoga Mastering the Secrets of Matter and the Universe”, by Alain Danielou.

Mantra Yoga
Mantra yoga finds union with God through proper use of speech and sound. It is the power of the word to create or destroy that Mantra yoga emphasizes. It utilizes the focused intent to make every word you speak in harmony with God and your own soul.

Mantra yoga also uses mantrums as an indispensable part of their practice. In the East, the mantra yogi usually uses the aum, so ham, om namah shivaya, or hram, hrim, as their favorite mantrums. The greatest mantra is the syllable, aum. It is considered the mother of all mantras. After this, the Gayatri mantra, which is considered the mantra of Eternal Wisdom in the Vedas.

Rhythmic repetition of a mantra is called Japa. This is why this type of yoga has also been called “Japa Yoga”. One of the greatest proponents of this practice is His Holiness, the Lord Sai Baba. He considers the constant repetition of the name of God and the visualizing of your favorite form of God or Deity as being an indispensable spiritual practice. Most spiritual teachers in the East and West integrate some form of Mantra yoga into their teachings.

The practice of mantra yoga takes constant vigilance over every thought you think and word you speak, for every word you speak in your daily life, in truth, is a mantra and word of power. There are different kinds of Japa.

  • Daily japa, usually done in the morning and evening.
  • Circumstantial japa, usually done on festival days.
  • Japa done for some specific desired rest.
  • Forbidden japa, which is done without discipline and with wrong pronunciation.
  • Japa done for penance.
  • Moving japa which is done through your day, which is what Sai Baba has recommended.
  • Voice japa is done out loud for others to hear if appropriate.
  • Whispered japa.
  • The Bee japa becomes the mantra and is murmured like the hum of a bee. The lips and tongue do not move and the eyes are usually closed.
  • Mental japa is done solely in one’s mind and is an indispensable method to use in your daily life.
  • The uninterrupted japa is for those who renounce the world. Japa is done continuously and when tired, the yogi meditates and when tired of meditating goes back to japa. When tired of both, think of the Supreme Self.
  • Doing japa with beads or a rosary of some kind.

There are sixteen steps of Mantra yoga. They are:

  1. Devotion.
  2. Purity.
  3. Posture.
  4. Observance of the calendar which is based on an astrological understanding which defines celebrations, fasts, and so on.
  5. The ways of conduct.
  6. Concentration.
  7. The search for the inner divine countries. These inner countries are considered the abodes of Deities, Masters, and gurus on the inner plane.
  8. Breath control.
  9. Gesture.
  10. Water offering.
  11. Fire offering.
  12. Ritual sacrifice. (fruit)
  13. Ritual worship which usually utilizes scents, flowers, incense, lamp, and food of some kind.
  14. Repetition of mantras, words of power and names of God.
  15. Contemplation.
  16. Identification (Samadhi). This is achieved when the meaning of the mantra has been realized and the mind dissolves into the Deity of the mantra. There becomes no separation between seeker, searcher and that which is sought. With identification, the seeker has achieved his goal.

Kundalini Yoga (Laya Yoga and Asparsha Yoga)
Kundalini yoga is the method by which certain spiritual practices are utilized to purposely and consciously raise the coiled energy at the base of the spine and try and raise it through the chakras to the third eye and crown chakra, in an attempt to achieve self realization. This type of yoga has also been called “Asparsha yoga”. It utilizes eight basic steps. These are:

  • Observances and abstinences
  • Purification
  • Courage
  • Steadiness
  • Endurance
  • Subtlety
  • Direct evidence
  • Thoughtless identification

It also utilizes certain specific breathing exercises, mudras, and bandhas in the process of awakening the kundalini.

I have spoken in great detail about the practice of Kundalini yoga in my book on “Soul Psychology”, so I will not repeat myself here. I do want to emphasize there that the forced conscious awakening of the kundalini, in point of fact, is a very dangerous proposition unless done under the guidance of a qualified self realized teacher, which, in truth, is hard to find.

The raising of the Kundalini is important, however, it does activate quite naturally and in proper timing and order to the well balanced, committed, and integrated disciple on the path, no matter what path you are following. Trying to force the awakening of the kundalini is literally playing with fire. This is not a type of yoga to experiment with haphazardly on your own.

This energy raised prematurely will activate and then shoot out your lower chakras and create worlds of problems. Before practicing this type of yoga, a disciple must have mastery over their energies. I would say, hence, it shouldn’t be focused upon until at least after the third initiation, and again, then only with a qualified spiritual teacher. This type of yoga has also been called Laya yoga.

Taraka Yoga
Taraka yoga is based on the non-dualist philosophy of Advaita Vedanta. It was thought to have been started by Shankara, about whom I have written extensively in my book, “The Life and Teachings of 40 of the World’s Greatest Saints and Spiritual Masters”.

The word Taraka actually means that which delivers. Taraka yoga delivers the practitioner to the unconditioned reality of the absolute. This is achieved through, first of all, the recognition of there being only one single being living in the infinite universe whose name is Brahman or Atman.

The goal of Taraka yoga is to convert one’s ordinary consciousness to a continuous awareness of this absolute reality. This is achieved, to a great extent, through a series of exercises in which light phenomena play a decisive role.

The inner light is produced by a technique known as “Shambhavi-mudra”. The yogi fixes his or her attention on the third eye, and taught to see and experience the light phenomena of the inner dimensions of reality. There are discernible stages of development in this yogic path. These have been loosely designated as:

  • Inner sign
  • External sign
  • Intermediate sign

There is a whole science of these lights and sounds, which remind me very much of Baba Muktananda’s experiences which I have recounted in the above mentioned book, also. If you are interested in this type of yoga, I would recommend reading a book called “Sacred Paths” by George Feuerstein, for a deeper explanation.

Karma Yoga
Karma yoga achieves union with God through “right action and through service. Sai Baba’s famous quote, “Hands that help are holier than lips that pray”, applies here. Karma yoga can also be summed up in the statement by Sri Bhagavan Krishna, in the Bhagavad Gita, when he says, “Worshipping Him with proper actions, a man attains realization.”

One key to Karma yoga is the performance of right action and service for its own sake, not caring about its immediate or apparent results. Karma yoga, literally means action yoga. It consists of the sacred work of demonstrating one’s daily activities totally in harmony with the soul’s wishes and desires.

All actions are done in the attitude of self surrender, with no regard to the fruit of one’s actions. This is done without any egotistical attachments. One could say that Mahatma Ghandi embodied the ideals of karma yoga perfectly.

It is also the gospel of Krishna in the Bhagavad Gita. A Karma yogi is an instrument of God in the affairs of the world. It is essential that we all integrate Karma yoga along with the other yogas into our daily lives.

Yantra Yoga
Yantra yoga is the path of union with God through geometric visualization. A yantra is a geometric design. They are highly efficient tools for contemplation, concentration, and meditation. This type of yoga might also be succinctly called mandala yoga.

The Buddhist are masters of this type of yoga as seen in their mandala, icons, tonkas, and sand paintings. The American Indians used this type of yoga, also. The Kabbalistic Tree of Life might be in this category also.

By tuning into the different aspects of Yantra or geometric visualization one is tapped into certain Deities or major creative spiritual force centers in the universe. The Yantra is like a microcosmic picture of the macrocosm. It is a focusing point and outer and inner doorway.

The Yantras are often focused towards a specific Deity and are drawn on paper, wood, sand, metal, or actually done in three dimensional shapes. The yantra must then be integrated into themself symbolically. Their body becomes the Yantra. This, in truth, is not that much different than people focusing on a specific Deity to worship, such as Krishna, or Rama, rather than focusing on an omnipresent and more impersonal conception of God.

The Yantra provides a focusing point much like the ten Sepheroth, in the Tree of Life, are windows and doorways into the absolute. The idea is to make the Yantra inwardly and outwardly so real that it becomes alive. In this way it absorbs the practitioner’s complete attention. They can no longer tell if the yantra is within themselves or if they are within the yantra.

The most celebrated yantra in India is the Sri-Yantra or “auspicious wheel.” It is a symbol of the entire cosmos. It serves to remind the practitioner of the non-difference between subject and object. 

Bhakti Yoga
Bhakti Yoga was the yoga of the Atlantean period which dealt with emotional attunement. For this reason it is the yoga of love and devotion. It has also been, to a great extent, a major yoga of the Piscean Age. It is a yoga for people who are more identified with their emotional body.

It’s method of reintegration with Source is through love. There are nine steps to Bhakti Yoga. These are:

  1. Listening
  2. Singing of Praise
  3. Meditation
  4. Worship of the feet
  5. Ritual worship
  6. Prostration
  7. To be a slave to God
  8. To be a friend
  9. Self surrender

Two of the well known spiritual masters that seem to embody this devotional Yoga are Paramahansa Yogananda and Sathya Sai Baba. They both embody this devotional aspect.

Two other forms of Bhakti Yoga are: The Way of passionate attachment and the way of transcendent love. “That form of devotion which makes use of emotions and brings joy and peace is called the way of passionate attachment. “From the Angirasa Daiva Mimansa, sutra.

The way of transcendent love sees the whole universe animate or inanimate as pervaded by divinity and experiences the reality, “Thou art that”. “He who, with his whole being, sees Divinity in all existing things and all things in Divinity, stands highest among the devotees of the Lord.”

Followers of Bhakti Yoga often personalize God, as the followers of Krishna and Rama did. They often are very involved with rituals, flowers, incense, beautiful buildings, and all forms which aid in cultivating love for God.

Bhaktis are less interested in intellectually understanding God. As you can see, these yogas relate very much to our four body system and how we each relate and identify with our physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual bodies.

Bhakti Yoga is also very much involved with self service. It is essential for every person on the spiritual path to practice some form of Bhakti yoga, otherwise they are disowning their emotional body in their pursuit of God realization.

We can see that on one yoga is better than another, although there are different yogas that suit certain people better at certain stages of their life and spiritual evolution. Bhakti yoga is the way of the heart, which in turn is the most important spiritual practice of all. Without a healthy physical body and controlled mind, this, in truth, cannot be achieved.

Eco Yoga
Eco yoga is one of the newer yogas, and is the yoga of ecological and environmental sanctification and respect. It sees all life as being interconnected and interdependent. It is, hence, the study and practice of the inter relatedness between minerals, plants, animals, humans, and the environment.

This type of yoga may be one of the most important of all because if we don’t learn to respect and sanctify the Earth Mother and all life that lives upon her, we will destroy the school that allows us to practice all the other yogas.

I have written extensively, in my other books, about the need to take care of our environment and work cooperatively with the nature kingdoms, so I won’t repeat myself here. It is suffice to say that God lives as much in the earth, a river, a mountain, a city, a plant, a mineral, an insect, an animal, in the air, the forests, in the physical body, as He does in higher dimensions of reality.

To not sanctify our environment is literally to deface and destroy God’s physical body. We wouldn’t do this to our own physical body, why would we show such little respect to His. The true spiritual path is to bring heaven to earth, and recognize the material universe as one of God’s most beautiful and treasured heavens.

Jnana Yoga
Jnana yoga is the religion of the philosopher and the thinker that wants to go beyond the visible and material reality. The Jnana yogi finds God through knowledge. Jnana yoga is summed up in the Upanishads by the following statement: “In the method of reintegration through knowledge the mind is ever bound to the ultimate end of existence which is liberation. This method leads to all attainments and is ever auspicious.”

Jnana yoga teaches seven stages of knowledge. Four states of mind and seven obstacles have to be faced.

The four states of mind are:

  1. Dispersed state
  2. The past approach
  3. The grasped state
  4. The merging state

The seven obstacles are:

  1. Good will
  2. Reflection
  3. Subtlety of mind
  4. Perception of reality
  5. Freedom from the leaning towards the world
  6. Disappearance of visible forms
  7. The unmanifest state

Jnana yoga is the path of insight or wisdom. It is wisdom based on what Vedanta refers to as higher knowledge rather than lower knowledge. Djwhal Khul might refer to this as the difference between knowledge of the higher mind and the concrete mind.

One of the great proponents of Jnana yoga is the Vedas, also known as Vedanta. It is based on the spiritual concept of non-dualism. Jnana yoga is the path of self realization through gnostic understanding that teaches the ability to discern the real from the unreal. To the Jnana yogi will power and inspired reason are the two guiding principles by which he can attain enlightenment. Jnana yoga has been described as a straight, but steep course.

Vedanta lists six principles of Jnana yoga that lead to liberation. These are:

  1. Discrimination
  2. Renunciation
  3. The six accomplishments (Tranquillity, Sense restraint, Actions totally in harmony with God.)
  4. Endurance
  5. Mental collectedness
  6. Faith

Other practices of Jnana yoga are:

  • Listening
  • Redemption, the sacred teaching
  • Pondering on the importance of meditation
  • …Jnana yoga, in essence, is the cultivation of the eye of wisdom.

Sabda or Nada Yoga
Sabda or Nada yoga is the method of achieving union with God through sound. One of its greatest proponents was Kabir, (the poet saint) the past life of Shirdi Sai Baba, about whom I have written extensively in my book on “The Life and Teachings of 40 of the World’s Greatest Saints and Spiritual Masters.”

Modern day mystery schools based upon Sabda or Nada yoga are Eckancar, John Roger, and Darwin Gross. The practice of Nada yoga has to do with learning to tune and listen to the inner sounds that emanate from the different dimensions of reality. In the chapter on “Soul Travel” in this book I have extensively listed these sounds that can be listened to in meditation.

Part of Sabda or Nada yoga also deals with the intoning of certain mantras and sacred sounds that allows one to soul travel and attune to the dimensions from which these mantras come. This is a most sublime form of yoga and is also the basis of the Sikh religion.

Kriya Yoga
Kriya yoga is the type of yoga taught by Babaji and Paramahansa Yogananda. I have written extensively about it in my first book, “The Complete Ascension Manual for the Aquarian Age”, in the chapter of “Babaji, the Yogi Christ”. For that reason I am not going to repeat the same information here. I will say, however, that Paramahansa Yogananda has referred to it as the airplane method to God. I have been initiated into this type of yoga, and have found it to be extraordinarily valuable.

Sankirtan Yoga
Sankirtan yoga seeks to find union with the Divine through the singing and chanting of bhajans or devotional songs, which are also called sankirtan. Sai Baba is one of the biggest proponents of this type of yoga. What is so beautiful about it is that the songs not only are filled with the sacred names of God, but the songs have very beautiful melodies which allows the emotional body of the practitioner to get involved.

Practitioners of Bhakti yoga would especially love this type of yoga. The joy and bliss that comes from singing devotional songs with a loving supportive spiritual community is awe inspiring. I, personally, have a whole set of devotional songs from the Sai Baba Foundation, which I play in my car constantly.

Sai Baba has said that the singing of devotional songs is the best spiritual practice for getting rid of the blemish of ego. Devotional songs are a way of practicing mantra yoga, and japa yoga, but doing it with a melody which is much more enjoyable. Temptation doesn’t arise when your mind is constantly affirming, chanting, and singing your love, devotion and praise of God!

Ashtanga Yoga and Agni Yoga
There is not a lot of information available on Ashtanga yoga. It is an important path of yoga because Djwhal Khul said that Asntanga yoga is the next yoga for the coming Meruvian root race. Theosophical literature has designated Agni, or fire yoga as the yoga of the next coming root race. It is for this reason that I have put these two together.

Ashtanga yoga is a type of power yoga. My wife, Terri, tells me that the actual full name is Ashtanga Vinyasa. She has practiced it, and it is a very active movement oriented type of yoga. Agni yoga was made famous by Nicolas Roerich, who channeled a whole series of books from the Ascended Master, El Morya, in this century on the subject and by the name Agni Yoga.

I would guide anyone who is interested in this subject to those set of books, of which I have looked at but not read myself. These teachings of El Morya, through Nicolas Roerich, were a dispensation of teachings much like those Madam Blavatsky and Alice Bailey channeled, except probably more of the first ray rather than the second ray, since El Morya is the Chohan for the first ray.

Shiva Yoga
This path of yoga is for those seekers who wish to merge the Shiva aspect in Hindu tradition. The Hindu trinity is made up of Brahma, Shiva, and Vishnu. The most popular forms of Vishnu worship in India are the followers of Rama and Krishna, who are incarnations of Vishnu.

There is also a path of yoga called Brahmanism that worships Brahman. Shiva yoga has five parts:

  1. Knowledge of Shiva
  2. Devotion to Shiva
  3. Contemplation of Shiva
  4. Observances of the austerities connected with Shiva
  5. Ritual worship of Shiva

Yoga of Synthesis

The yoga of synthesis is the type of yoga I, personally, recommend practicing. It is the yoga that integrates all paths of yoga, all spiritual paths, all religions. It is an eclectic and universalistic path that garnishes the best from each path and integrates them into one cohesive unified whole.

This is not to say that you might not emphasize a certain path in your life or in a certain phase of your life, or even in a certain incarnation. In the larger context, however, all paths are one and spokes on the wheel. No one path of yoga is better than any other. They are all important and essential to our full and total realization of God.

Integral Yoga
Integral yoga is the term given to the yoga created by Sri Aurobindo, the self realized master from India who lived earlier in this century. I am not well versed on his particular slant of the Vedic teachings, however, I have always very much respected his contribution.

I am reminded of a story about him that occurred, I believe, on November 24, 1923. He was meditation and received a vision that Krishna had incarnated into the physical world on the previous day. The previous Sathya Sai Baba had incarnated into a baby’s body in Southern India.

One of the integral teachings of Sri Aurobindo’s yoga was his commitment to political action as well as his inner spiritual work. In this regard he was more balanced than some of the eastern spiritual traditions of non-involvement with the material world.

A lot of his teachings on integral yoga he developed with his partner who was referred to as the Mother. For those interested in studying his teachings in specific detail I would recommend reading his two volume set of books called, “Letters on Yoga, Volume One and Two”.

He was a prolific writer and one of his teachers was Sri Sankara, the great Hindu Master who lived in the Eighth Century.

Trinity Yoga
The Trinity Yoga is similar to the Yoga of Synthesis in that it incorporates the full spectrum of all the sacred paths of yoga. However, the key theme of this form of yoga is the practice the integration of the Threefold Trinity Law which is,

“Receive God. Be God. Give God.
Receive Christ. Be Christ. Give Christ.

Receive the Holy Spirit. Be the Holy Spirit. Give the Holy Spirit!”

Commentary:

Douglas Pollock – …From my understanding, there are only four basic approaches to union: action (Karma), devotion (Bhakti), control (Raja) and knowledge (Jnana). Under this view, Hatha Yoga, Mantra Yoga, Kundalini Yoga … these are all forms of Raja Yoga.  There is a kind of fifth form, which is simply the union of all forms. This has been called the yoga of synthesis, integral yoga, etc. This is a relatively new form (100 years or so). Swami Sivananda felt that this was the best approach for us living in the Kali Yuga.  Also, …Tantra is [not] just about sex. It is a way of interpreting reality: Siva and Shakti. One branch of Tantra (left-hand tantra) includes some sexual practices, but it would be wrong to colour all of tantra by that fact.

Simon Fortier-Garceau – Yoga is essentally One. I think of the Triad : Hatha Yoga, Bhakti Yoga and Jnani Yoga which are summed up in Raja Yoga… but this is a matter of pure speculation as to know which includes which and whichever. Yoga of Synthesis is another more inclusive [summation] of Yoga. …22 types of Yoga…is only meant here to give a certain diversity. I did forget to mention all these were but the branches of more essential all-including yogas such as you mentioned… that is good indeed that you have brought it up. Hence, we will have answered both to those who are looking for a particular approach of Yoga, and those who are looking for a more essential/all-inclusive/primal type of Yoga. I have studied Yoga under another tree and have read only so much of Swami Sivananda’s teaching. I think that both our approaches will complement each other in a very interesting blended fashion…

Douglas Pollock – …Which guru-parampara have you studied under? Swami Sivananda is an interesting fellow. He ended up having a profound effect on western culture, even though he never came here … only his disciples. His disciples have ashrams all over North America, but I think the Sivananda Ashram Yoga Camp in Val-Morin is the closest one to you. During the summers, there tend to be a lot of people there, and you could go to study a bit perhaps.Wouldn’t you say that karma yoga and bhakti yoga and raja yoga are fundamentally different though? I think jnana yoga is different as well, but I could see how this distinction is less clear. But bhakti (emotions) and raja yoga (control of mind) seem like different approaches. It is true in the end that they all go to the same place….Another point favouring the distinction: I believe there are generally viewed to be six main philosophical schools. Two of these are vedanta and yoga. Vedanta corresponds to jnana yoga, and yoga corresponds to raja yoga.I am no expert on tantra, I just have my own limited experiences. When I was living on an ashram, the priests were tantric priests and there didn’t seem to be any sex acts involved in their rituals. :) I’ve only had the two-hands of tantra explained, though apparently there are a lot more “flavours” of tantra than that (just like there are lots of different sects of Christianity, even though there are two broad divisions: Catholic and Protestant). The right-hand forbids the “5 Ms” (sex, alcohol, some kind of grain, flesh, and fish in English), while the left-hand does not. And even on the left-hand, these practices are generally reserved for people who have advanced far along the spiritual path.But I agree with you: it’s what we actually do that matters, not what we call it.

The 22 Sacred Paths of Yoga
By Dr Joshua David StoneThe purpose of this chapter is to give you a brief overview of the sacred paths of yoga. To begin this discussion it is important to understand that “Yoga” means “union with God.” There are, however, many ways that this can be achieved. I will attempt to describe them briefly. These are:Hatha Yoga
Taraka Yoga
Karma Yoga
Yantra Yoga
Bhakti Yoga
Eco Yoga
Jnana Yoga
Sabda or Nada Yoga
Kriya Yoga
Mansa Yoga
Laya Yoga
Siddha Yoga
Kundalini Yoga
Sankirtan Yoga
Asparsha Yoga
Lambika Yoga
Ashtanga Yoga
Siva Yoga
Agni Yoga
Mantra Yoga
Yoga of Synthesis
Trinity Yoga 

In my first book, “The Complete Ascension “, I spoke of the seven root races that make up our current world cycle and the yogas that were focused upon during these time periods. I will briefly review this here.

Polarian, Hyperborean, and Lemurian – Hatha Yoga
Atlantean – Bhakti Yoga

Aryan – Raja Yoga

Meruvian – Agni Yoga or Ashtanga Yoga

Paradisian – Unknown

These might be considered the major paths of yoga and there are many minor paths and off shoots of these. These are major because Hatha Yoga correlates with the physical yoga. Bhakti with the emotionally focused yoga. Raja with the mentally focused yoga.

All different paths of yoga might be considered as spokes on a wheel with God in the center. They all lead to the same place. I, personally, practice what might be termed a yoga of synthesis that integrates all the yogas and extracts the best and finest teachings from all of them.

Hatha Yoga
This school of yoga was the form focused upon in the Lemurian epoch of our history. It is a yoga focused upon physical purification and training. Its goal is to bring the physical body into a perfect state of physical health, so the soul may have a fitting vehicle of expression to work through.

There are many practices, including physical yoga postures and breathing exercises which also act upon the physical nervous system and etheric body which is considered a corollary aspect of the physical body. Hatha Yoga also helps to bring the vital energies of the physical and etheric body under control.

As one can see, this is an indispensable yoga for every person to practice on some level and is intimately tied together with passing the first initiation which has to do with physical mastery.

The word “Hatha” actually means the conjunction of the sun and the moon. It is this physical balance of these macrocosmic and microcosmic principles that must be balanced within the human body. There are five main steps in the process of Hatha Yoga. These are:

Abstinence

Observance

Sitting postures

Breath control

Non-attachment to possessions

Hatha Yoga also teaches many muscular contractions which are called bandhas and physical gestures that are called mudras. It also teaches the science of Pratyahara which has to do with learning to withdraw the senses from external objects, which is truly the key to effective meditation.

If you would like to learn more about Hatha Yoga there are many wonderful books on the market. Two books in particular, I would recommend, are, “The Practice of yoga” by Swami Sivananda, and a second book called, “Yoga Mastering the Secrets of Matter and the Universe”, by Alain Danielou.

Bhakti Yoga
Bhakti Yoga was the yoga of the Atlantean period which dealt with emotional attunement. For this reason it is the yoga of love and devotion. It has also been, to a great extent, a major yoga of the Piscean Age. It is a yoga for people who are more identified with their emotional body.

It’s method of reintegration with Source is through love. There are nine steps to Bhakti Yoga. These are:

Listening

Singing of Praise

Meditation

Worship of the feet

Ritual worship

Prostration

To be a slave to God

To be a friend

Self surrender

Two of the well known spiritual masters that seem to embody this devotional Yoga are Paramahansa Yogananda and Sathya Sai Baba. They both embody this devotional aspect.

Two other forms of Bhakti Yoga are: The Way of passionate attachment and the way of transcendent love. “That form of devotion which makes use of emotions and brings joy and peace is called the way of passionate attachment. “From the Angirasa Daiva Mimansa, sutra.

The way of transcendent love sees the whole universe animate or inanimate as pervaded by divinity and experiences the reality, “Thou art that”. “He who, with his whole being, sees Divinity in all existing things and all things in Divinity, stands highest among the devotees of the Lord.”

Followers of Bhakti Yoga often personalize God, as the followers of Krishna and Rama did. They often are very involved with rituals, flowers, incense, beautiful buildings, and all forms which aid in cultivating love for God.

Bhaktis are less interested in intellectually understanding God. As you can see, these yogas relate very much to our four body system and how we each relate and identify with our physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual bodies.

Bhakti Yoga is also very much involved with self service. It is essential for every person on the spiritual path to practice some form of Bhakti yoga, otherwise they are disowning their emotional body in their pursuit of God realization.

We can see that on one yoga is better than another, although there are different yogas that suit certain people better at certain stages of their life and spiritual evolution. Bhakti yoga is the way of the heart, which in turn is the most important spiritual practice of all. Without a healthy physical body and controlled mind, this, in truth, cannot be achieved.

Raja Yoga
It has been said that the purpose of Hatha yoga is to make Raja yoga possible. Raja yoga cannot be achieved without the training of Hatha yoga and Bhakti yoga, for that matter. Raja yoga is the yoga of the Aryan age. It is for this reason it is the yoga that deals with the controlling and concentrating of the mind, which is the main lesson of this current root race. It is through the concentration of the mind that man gains knowledge and mastery of all things.

There are fifteen main steps to Raja yoga. These are:

Abstinence

Observance (“I am the principle of all things, the Brahman.”)

Renunciation

Silence

Solitude

Proper use of time.

Postures

Root contraction (Mula-bandha)

Strengthening of the body

The straightening of the body

Spiritual sight

Breath control

Pratyhara – “Seeing Divinity in all perceptible forms brings delight to the mind and its faculties. Know this as the withdrawal which should be practiced every moment.”

Contemplation – “The one changeless thought, ’I am the principle, the Brahman’, with no other notion, is known under the name of contemplation and is the giver of supreme bliss.” – The Upanishads.

Identification – “When the very notion of contemplation is forgotten, this is known as identification.” – The Upanishads

The term Raja yoga means royal yoga. It refers, specifically, to the yoga system of Patanjali. For an in-depth study of the teachings of Raja Yoga I would guide you to the other chapter in this book on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.

I have personally found Patanjali’s teachings to be some of the most profound I have ever studied. It is a system of study that I find very similar to “The Course in Miracles” in some ways. The only difference is that it was written over 5000 years ago. Raja yoga is especially important to study now because of the period of history of this planet in which we are living.

Karma Yoga
Karma yoga achieves union with God through “right action and through service. Sai Baba’s famous quote, “Hands that help are holier than lips that pray”, applies here. Karma yoga can also be summed up in the statement by Sri Bhagavan Krishna, in the Bhagavad Gita, when he says, “Worshipping Him with proper actions, a man attains realization.”

One key to Karma yoga is the performance of right action and service for its own sake, not caring about its immediate or apparent results. Karma yoga, literally means action yoga. It consists of the sacred work of demonstrating one’s daily activities totally in harmony with the soul’s wishes and desires.

All actions are done in the attitude of self surrender, with no regard to the fruit of one’s actions. This is done without any egotistical attachments. One could say that Mahatma Ghandi embodied the ideals of karma yoga perfectly.

It is also the gospel of Krishna in the Bhagavad Gita. A Karma yogi is an instrument of God in the affairs of the world. It is essential that we all integrate Karma yoga along with the other yogas into our daily lives.

Jnana Yoga
Jnana yoga is the religion of the philosopher and the thinker that wants to go beyond the visible and material reality. The Jnana yogi finds God through knowledge. Jnana yoga is summed up in the Upanishads by the following statement: “In the method of reintegration through knowledge the mind is ever bound to the ultimate end of existence which is liberation. This method leads to all attainments and is ever auspicious.”

Jnana yoga teaches seven stages of knowledge. Four states of mind and seven obstacles have to be faced.

The four states of mind are:

Dispersed state

The past approach

The grasped state

The merging state

The seven obstacles are:

Good will

Reflection

Subtlety of mind

Perception of reality

Freedom from the leaning towards the world

Disappearance of visible forms

The unmanifest state

Jnana yoga is the path of insight or wisdom. It is wisdom based on what Vedanta refers to as higher knowledge rather than lower knowledge. Djwhal Khul might refer to this as the difference between knowledge of the higher mind and the concrete mind.

One of the great proponents of Jnana yoga is the Vedas, also known as Vedanta. It is based on the spiritual concept of non-dualism. Jnana yoga is the path of self realization through gnostic understanding that teaches the ability to discern the real from the unreal. To the Jnana yogi will power and inspired reason are the two guiding principles by which he can attain enlightenment. Jnana yoga has been described as a straight, but steep course.

Vedanta lists six principles of Jnana yoga that lead to liberation. These are:

Discrimination

Renunciation

The six accomplishments (Tranquillity, Sense restraint, Actions totally in harmony with God.)

Endurance

Mental collectedness

Faith

Other practices of Jnana yoga are:

Listening

Redemption, the sacred teaching

Pondering on the importance of meditation

…Jnana yoga, in essence, is the cultivation of the eye of wisdom.

Mantra Yoga
Mantra yoga finds union with God through proper use of speech and sound. It is the power of the word to create or destroy that Mantra yoga emphasizes. It utilizes the focused intent to make every word you speak in harmony with God and your own soul.

Mantra yoga also uses mantrums as an indispensable part of their practice. In the East, the mantra yogi usually uses the aum, so ham, om namah shivaya, or hram, hrim, as their favorite mantrums. The greatest mantra is the syllable, aum. It is considered the mother of all mantras. After this, the Gayatri mantra, which is considered the mantra of Eternal Wisdom in the Vedas.

Rhythmic repetition of a mantra is called Japa. This is why this type of yoga has also been called “Japa Yoga”. One of the greatest proponents of this practice is His Holiness, the Lord Sai Baba. He considers the constant repetition of the name of God and the visualizing of your favorite form of God or Deity as being an indispensable spiritual practice. Most spiritual teachers in the East and West integrate some form of Mantra yoga into their teachings.

The practice of mantra yoga takes constant vigilance over every thought you think and word you speak, for every word you speak in your daily life, in truth, is a mantra and word of power. There are different kinds of Japa.

Daily japa, usually done in the morning and evening.

Circumstantial japa, usually done on festival days.

Japa done for some specific desired rest.

Forbidden japa, which is done without discipline and with wrong pronunciation.

Japa done for penance.

Moving japa which is done through your day, which is what Sai Baba has recommended.

Voice japa is done out loud for others to hear if appropriate.

Whispered japa.

The Bee japa becomes the mantra and is murmured like the hum of a bee. The lips and tongue do not move and the eyes are usually closed.

Mental japa is done solely in one’s mind and is an indispensable method to use in your daily life.

The uninterrupted japa is for those who renounce the world. Japa is done continuously and when tired, the yogi meditates and when tired of meditating goes back to japa. When tired of both, think of the Supreme Self.

Doing japa with beads or a rosary of some kind.

There are sixteen steps of Mantra yoga. They are:

Devotion.

Purity.

Posture.

Observance of the calendar which is based on an astrological understanding which defines celebrations, fasts, and so on.

The ways of conduct.

Concentration.

The search for the inner divine countries. These inner countries are considered the abodes of Deities, Masters, and gurus on the inner plane.

Breath control.

Gesture.

Water offering.

Fire offering.

Ritual sacrifice. (fruit)

Ritual worship which usually utilizes scents, flowers, incense, lamp, and food of some kind.

Repetition of mantras, words of power and names of God.

Contemplation.

Identification (Samadhi). This is achieved when the meaning of the mantra has been realized and the mind dissolves into the Deity of the mantra. There becomes no separation between seeker, searcher and that which is sought. With identification, the seeker has achieved his goal.

Kundalini Yoga or Laya Yoga
Kundalini yoga is the method by which certain spiritual practices are utilized to purposely and consciously raise the coiled energy at the base of the spine and try and raise it through the chakras to the third eye and crown chakra, in an attempt to achieve self realization. This type of yoga has also been called “Asparsha yoga”. It utilizes eight basic steps. These are:

Observances and abstinences

Purification

Courage

Steadiness

Endurance

Subtlety

Direct evidence

Thoughtless identification

It also utilizes certain specific breathing exercises, mudras, and bandhas in the process of awakening the kundalini.

I have spoken in great detail about the practice of Kundalini yoga in my book on “Soul Psychology”, so I will not repeat myself here. I do want to emphasize there that the forced conscious awakening of the kundalini, in point of fact, is a very dangerous proposition unless done under the guidance of a qualified self realized teacher, which, in truth, is hard to find.

The raising of the Kundalini is important, however, it does activate quite naturally and in proper timing and order to the well balanced, committed, and integrated disciple on the path, no matter what path you are following. Trying to force the awakening of the kundalini is literally playing with fire. This is not a type of yoga to experiment with haphazardly on your own.

This energy raised prematurely will activate and then shoot out your lower chakras and create worlds of problems. Before practicing this type of yoga, a disciple must have mastery over their energies. I would say, hence, it shouldn’t be focused upon until at least after the third initiation, and again, then only with a qualified spiritual teacher. This type of yoga has also been called Laya yoga.

Tantra Yoga
Tantra yoga seek to find union with the Divine through the spiritual and divine use of sexuality. It seeks to use sexual energy as a means of attaining self mastery. Tantric yoga philosophy believes that one can achieve the same result through celibacy or sexual union. It is the spiritual science of learning to raise sexual energy up the chakras while actually making love with your partner or spouse.

Tantric yoga believes that sexual energy must be controlled, mastered and utilized and not run away from. Sexuality is seen as a sacred energy and is used, but under the guidance of the soul and not the lower self.

In my book on “Soul Psychology” I have dedicated an entire chapter to this subject, so I will not repeat myself here. It is suffice to say, however, that this type of yoga, in my opinion, is a form that almost all the people on this planet need to come to terms with.

Tantra yoga provides a midpoint between the two extremes of celibacy, and being run by the carnal lower self in this regard. Tantra yoga is the spiritual science of how to properly utilize your sexual energy in service of God. Many of the Eastern traditions and fundamentalist religions make sexuality out to be a bad thing, which just isn’t true. When used properly it can accelerate your path of God realization.

Taraka Yoga
Taraka yoga is based on the non-dualist philosophy of Advaita Vedanta. It was thought to have been started by Shankara, about whom I have written extensively in my book, “The Life and Teachings of 40 of the World’s Greatest Saints and Spiritual Masters”.

The word Taraka actually means that which delivers. Taraka yoga delivers the practitioner to the unconditioned reality of the absolute. This is achieved through, first of all, the recognition of there being only one single being living in the infinite universe whose name is Brahman or Atman.

The goal of Taraka yoga is to convert one’s ordinary consciousness to a continuous awareness of this absolute reality. This is achieved, to a great extent, through a series of exercises in which light phenomena play a decisive role.

The inner light is produced by a technique known as “Shambhavi-mudra”. The yogi fixes his or her attention on the third eye, and taught to see and experience the light phenomena of the inner dimensions of reality. There are discernible stages of development in this yogic path. These have been loosely designated as:

Inner sign

External sign

Intermediate sign

There is a whole science of these lights and sounds, which remind me very much of Baba Muktananda’s experiences which I have recounted in the above mentioned book, also. If you are interested in this type of yoga, I would recommend reading a book called “Sacred Paths” by George Feuerstein, for a deeper explanation.

Yantra Yoga
Yantra yoga is the path of union with God through geometric visualization. A yantra is a geometric design. They are highly efficient tools for contemplation, concentration, and meditation. This type of yoga might also be succinctly called mandala yoga.

The Buddhist are masters of this type of yoga as seen in their mandala, icons, tonkas, and sand paintings. The American Indians used this type of yoga, also. The Kabbalistic Tree of Life might be in this category also.

By tuning into the different aspects of Yantra or geometric visualization one is tapped into certain Deities or major creative spiritual force centers in the universe. The Yantra is like a microcosmic picture of the macrocosm. It is a focusing point and outer and inner doorway.

The Yantras are often focused towards a specific Deity and are drawn on paper, wood, sand, metal, or actually done in three dimensional shapes. The yantra must then be integrated into themself symbolically. Their body becomes the Yantra. This, in truth, is not that much different than people focusing on a specific Deity to worship, such as Krishna, or Rama, rather than focusing on an omnipresent and more impersonal conception of God.

The Yantra provides a focusing point much like the ten Sepheroth, in the Tree of Life, are windows and doorways into the absolute. The idea is to make the Yantra inwardly and outwardly so real that it becomes alive. In this way it absorbs the practitioner’s complete attention. They can no longer tell if the yantra is within themselves or if they are within the yantra.

The most celebrated yantra in India is the Sri-Yantra or “auspicious wheel.” It is a symbol of the entire cosmos. It serves to remind the practitioner of the non-difference between subject and object.

Kriya Yoga
Kriya yoga is the type of yoga taught by Babaji and Paramahansa Yogananda. I have written extensively about it in my first book, “The Complete Ascension Manual for the Aquarian Age”, in the chapter of “Babaji, the Yogi Christ”. For that reason I am not going to repeat the same information here. I will say, however, that Paramahansa Yogananda has referred to it as the airplane method to God. I have been initiated into this type of yoga, and have found it to be extraordinarily valuable.

Sabda or Nada Yoga
Sabda or Nada yoga is the method of achieving union with God through sound. One of its greatest proponents was Kabir, (the poet saint) the past life of Shirdi Sai Baba, about whom I have written extensively in my book on “The Life and Teachings of 40 of the World’s Greatest Saints and Spiritual Masters.”

Modern day mystery schools based upon Sabda or Nada yoga are Eckancar, John Roger, and Darwin Gross. The practice of Nada yoga has to do with learning to tune and listen to the inner sounds that emanate from the different dimensions of reality. In the chapter on “Soul Travel” in this book I have extensively listed these sounds that can be listened to in meditation.

Part of Sabda or Nada yoga also deals with the intoning of certain mantras and sacred sounds that allows one to soul travel and attune to the dimensions from which these mantras come. This is a most sublime form of yoga and is also the basis of the Sikh religion.

Sankirtan Yoga
Sankirtan yoga seeks to find union with the Divine through the singing and chanting of bhajans or devotional songs, which are also called sankirtan. Sai Baba is one of the biggest proponents of this type of yoga. What is so beautiful about it is that the songs not only are filled with the sacred names of God, but the songs have very beautiful melodies which allows the emotional body of the practitioner to get involved.

Practitioners of Bhakti yoga would especially love this type of yoga. The joy and bliss that comes from singing devotional songs with a loving supportive spiritual community is awe inspiring. I, personally, have a whole set of devotional songs from the Sai Baba Foundation, which I play in my car constantly.

Sai Baba has said that the singing of devotional songs is the best spiritual practice for getting rid of the blemish of ego. Devotional songs are a way of practicing mantra yoga, and japa yoga, but doing it with a melody which is much more enjoyable. Temptation doesn’t arise when your mind is constantly affirming, chanting, and singing your love, devotion and praise of God!

Ashtanga Yoga and Agni Yoga
There is not a lot of information available on Ashtanga yoga. It is an important path of yoga because Djwhal Khul said that Asntanga yoga is the next yoga for the coming Meruvian root race. Theosophical literature has designated Agni, or fire yoga as the yoga of the next coming root race. It is for this reason that I have put these two together.

Ashtanga yoga is a type of power yoga. My wife, Terri, tells me that the actual full name is Ashtanga Vinyasa. She has practiced it, and it is a very active movement oriented type of yoga. Agni yoga was made famous by Nicolas Roerich, who channeled a whole series of books from the Ascended Master, El Morya, in this century on the subject and by the name Agni Yoga.

I would guide anyone who is interested in this subject to those set of books, of which I have looked at but not read myself. These teachings of El Morya, through Nicolas Roerich, were a dispensation of teachings much like those Madam Blavatsky and Alice Bailey channeled, except probably more of the first ray rather than the second ray, since El Morya is the Chohan for the first ray.

Eco Yoga
Eco yoga is one of the newer yogas, and is the yoga of ecological and environmental sanctification and respect. It sees all life as being interconnected and interdependent. It is, hence, the study and practice of the inter relatedness between minerals, plants, animals, humans, and the environment.

This type of yoga may be one of the most important of all because if we don’t learn to respect and sanctify the Earth Mother and all life that lives upon her, we will destroy the school that allows us to practice all the other yogas.

I have written extensively, in my other books, about the need to take care of our environment and work cooperatively with the nature kingdoms, so I won’t repeat myself here. It is suffice to say that God lives as much in the earth, a river, a mountain, a city, a plant, a mineral, an insect, an animal, in the air, the forests, in the physical body, as He does in higher dimensions of reality.

To not sanctify our environment is literally to deface and destroy God’s physical body. We wouldn’t do this to our own physical body, why would we show such little respect to His. The true spiritual path is to bring heaven to earth, and recognize the material universe as one of God’s most beautiful and treasured heavens.

Shiva Yoga
This path of yoga is for those seekers who wish to merge the Shiva aspect in Hindu tradition. The Hindu trinity is made up of Brahma, Shiva, and Vishnu. The most popular forms of Vishnu worship in India are the followers of Rama and Krishna, who are incarnations of Vishnu.

There is also a path of yoga called Brahmanism that worships Brahman. Shiva yoga has five parts:

Knowledge of Shiva

Devotion to Shiva

Contemplation of Shiva

Observances of the austerities connected with Shiva

Ritual worship of Shiva

Integral Yoga
Integral yoga is the term given to the yoga created by Sri Aurobindo, the self realized master from India who lived earlier in this century. I am not well versed on his particular slant of the Vedic teachings, however, I have always very much respected his contribution.

I am reminded of a story about him that occurred, I believe, on November 24, 1923. He was meditation and received a vision that Krishna had incarnated into the physical world on the previous day. The previous Sathya Sai Baba had incarnated into a baby’s body in Southern India.

One of the integral teachings of Sri Aurobindo’s yoga was his commitment to political action as well as his inner spiritual work. In this regard he was more balanced than some of the eastern spiritual traditions of non-involvement with the material world.

A lot of his teachings on integral yoga he developed with his partner who was referred to as the Mother. For those interested in studying his teachings in specific detail I would recommend reading his two volume set of books called, “Letters on Yoga, Volume One and Two”.

He was a prolific writer and one of his teachers was Sri Sankara, the great Hindu Master who lived in the Eighth Century.

Yoga of Synthesis
The yoga of synthesis is the type of yoga I, personally, recommend practicing. It is the yoga that integrates all paths of yoga, all spiritual paths, all religions. It is an eclectic and universalistic path that garnishes the best from each path and integrates them into one cohesive unified whole.

This is not to say that you might not emphasize a certain path in your life or in a certain phase of your life, or even in a certain incarnation. In the larger context, however, all paths are one and spokes on the wheel. No one path of yoga is better than any other. They are all important and essential to our full and total realization of God.

Trinity Yoga
The Trinity Yoga is similar to the Yoga of Synthesis in that it incorporates the full spectrum of all the sacred paths of yoga. However, the key theme of this form of yoga is the practice the integration of the Threefold Trinity Law which is,

“Receive God. Be God. Give God.
Receive Christ. Be Christ. Give Christ.

Receive the Holy Spirit. Be the Holy Spirit. Give the Holy Spirit!”

 





The Starseed Mission: A Practical Guide to the Pros and Cons in One’s Awakening

26 12 2010


by Mae McCaw

The starseed’s mission here on Earth is not always clear.  There is often a little confusion as to who one is, why (s)he is here, what is the next step, etc.  Note that there are many paths, this is simply one suggestion on your journey.  Many enlightened beings, masters, gurus, etc. came before humanity to make it easier for each individual’s awakening.  One may – if he chooses – tap into entire libraries of information to help along his path.  That said, the following information may shed some Light, clarity and understanding in that path:

1. The starseed is a sentient being who originates from a different star system and is now living on Earth.  Note, however, it is said that all humans originate from different star systems.  Nonetheless, there are those starseeds whose designation is one specifically on this planet for a mission to assist in the planet’s ascension or shift into the 5th dimension–this, by assisting in raising the planet’s frequencies (inclusive of Light energies) to enable this shift.  The starseed (also known as “lightworker/ light server/ way-shower” or other conscious human) volunteered to be here prior to arrival on the planet via incarnation, visitation, braided consciousness, disembodied multidimensional energy, consciousness swap or “walk-in” (though not all walk-ins are way showers or lightworkers).

2. The starseed contracted the human 4-body system (physical, emotional/astral, mental and spiritual) as part of this experience.  A mastery of the 4-body system is part of awakening one’s consciousness.  Any mal-adjustment to the host body or planet makes it difficult for the starseed to broadcast higher frequencies of vibration – though he does  so regardless at higher than your average human frequency – to support the planetary shift.  Mal-adjustment means just that–having difficulty adjusting to the human physical, emotional, mental and/or spiritual body and/or conditions of the planet.  This lends itself to negative dynamics in starseed relationships as well as the starseed’s own existential crisis.

3. That said, however, the Spiritual Hierarchy (including Archangels, Angels, Cosmic Beings, and Ascended Masters) with the aid of the  Galactic Community (of Light) – upon our collective request – have already begun to anchor enormous amounts of Light energies – (genuine) spiral energies, the Mahatma energies, portal energies, galactic energies – that have entered the material plane into Earth since the Harmonic Convergence of 1987, if not prior to this, but the bulk of which is the past few decades.  These energies were designed to help in a global awakening as well as the ushering of Earth into higher realms of consciousness.  With the acceleration of time (these past few years and even more dramatically since the end of 2012), one feels the intensity of these energies depending on his/her individual level of consciousness.

4. The human experience (starseed incarnation or not) requires a mastery over this 4-body system in order to do the job one was sent here to do.  If the starseed is still consistently living an emotional roller coaster experiencing bouts of anger, jealousy, sadness, depression, ego-driven differences of entitlement, etc., he is actually lowering his own vibration.  He need not be perfect;  however, once he has become fully conscious, he is not likely to devolve (but it’s also not impossible to digress since sentient beings operate with free will).

5. When a starseed or human expresses a “Lightness of being” (and does so as a way of life) – i.e. living genuine feelings of laughter, joy, love, contentment – the very state of these experiences raises the vibration or frequencies to the highest levels on the planet which can compensate for and counter balance hundreds of thousands even millions of individuals broadcasting at much lower frequencies (such as shame, guilt, anger, depression, fear…) For a wonderful article and list of these frequencies, see “Measuring Consciousness Levels (Dr. Hawkins)“.

6. Starseeds do indeed emit higher frequencies of vibration than your average human, anchoring greater amounts of Light energy to the planet simply by virtue of being a starseed Lightworker;  however, as the  starseed (or human) awakens to his/her mission and becomes conscious of his divine origin, his vibration exponentially increases; thus, allowing for greater assistance in the planetary ascension process.

7. To be conscious, a starseed must awaken to his mission.

8. The awakening is largely twofold:

(a) The starseed realizes his identity (though unknown in many cases) and mission as a starseed.  Note that it is not always necessary to know one’s exact origins in order to fulfill his mission here on Earth.  (The likelihood, however, is that many starseeds have incarnated on Earth most commonly from Sirius, the Pleiades, Arcturus, Orion, Lyra/Vega, and/or Andromeda.) The veil of forgetfulness is there for a reason upon incarnation.  In fact, it can sometimes deter one’s efforts to know his exact origins should he find himself succumbing to an “us versus them” mentality…which brings us to the following point:

(b) more importantly, the starseed (and/or conscious human) experiences Self Realization–that he and all of creation in the universe(s) are One.  He sheds any mental untruths that separate him from another (being or species).  He realizes that the Creator IS the Creation.  He realizes his own God particle in the fabric of his being that connects him to all life forms.

9. Not all ET souls incarnated on Earth are starseeds with the Lightworker mission.  And that’s perfectly okay.  Some or many of those who feel they “do not fit in” may easily be of ET civilizations whose worlds were destroyed or have become extinct, and therefore, were given a new life incarnated as humans on Earth.  This can explain the inability to adopt the new dominant culture or the constant feeling of alienation–which, please note, does not necessarily broadcast Light frequencies.

10. As noted previously, in his mission, the starseed is here to raise the positive vibration and Light energies of Earth to enable her dimensional shift, an elevation to higher realms of consciousness into the 5th dimension.

11. “Light” in and of itself is more than just “information”, however, this simplification is to assist the human understanding thereof.  In order to attain higher Light quotients in one’s being, a purity of heart – the element of Love – must be consciously nurtured and demonstrated in one’s daily life experience.  “Love” has been known in Christian bibles as the “Holy Spirit” and the “Holy Ghost”.  To humanity’s brothers and sisters who exist in the fields of Light, they refer to this Love as the Goddess Energy, inseparable from the Light.

12. Hence, part of living consciously is to activate one’s Heart (also known as the Sacred Heart to Christians, the underlying theme in the works of the Christ Jesus).  Today, many of humanity’s New Age voices carry this message of Heart Consciousness (supplanting what used to be exclusively Mind Consciousness access to the Light, Unified Field, Supreme Creator, Infinite Spirit, Central Sun, or Universal Being otherwise known to humans as “God”). Love & Light or “Goddess & God” exist in unison. Love is the language of Light.  It is, therefore, critical for the human to be in touch with, control of and avail his feelings or emotions–expressions of the Heart.

13. In order for the starseed to understand what it means to assist in raising the positive vibration of Mother Earth, the starseed must understand that God and Nature are One.  This is common knowledge and practice amongst native tribes on the planet who have also anchored Light energies for the shift.

14. Hence, it is about eco, not ego. Some starseeds may find themselves entitled and above the very humans they came to assist (by separating themselves: us vs. them mentality) by virtue of being different. It’s best to transcend both the ego and the duality of good and evil (since God is All That Is). One would otherwise actually be broadcasting dark (not Light) frequencies;  thus, defeating one’s starseed mission.  We are One.

15. There are currently almost seven billion people on Earth.  Of this number, one billion is said to awaken (if not already) as starseeds, lightworkers or way-showers on the mission to assist the planet.  That is one out of every seven people.  This is largely an eco mission.  It is about the ecology of Earth instilling in humans the need to treat the planet with Love and respect, to nurture her soils, seas, landscapes, elements, animal, plant and mineral kingdoms.

16. However, in order to assist in healing the planet, we must first heal ourselves.  Many starseeds are here to do just that–particularly help in healing humans by example through love, compassion, clarity and understanding.

17. Nonetheless, many starseeds also have 4th dimensional abilities to heal via energy healing, channeling, frequency healing (sounds, music…), telekinesis, telepathy, etc.  This does not presume, however, that those with these abilities are necessarily conscious and using these abilities for healing purposes.  They can just as easily direct these energies toward the dark as they can toward the Light (free will).  This is why it’s so critical to have a genuine loving disposition, a purity of heart in all that one is or does. “Get what you give.” “Reap what you sew.”  e.g. Loving hands that plant vegetables yield the sweetest most delicious foods for man’s plate than any factory farm–organic or not.  Likewise, angry farmers, cooks and servers or tortured mistreated animals used for meat supply will taint the very food one consumes with lower frequencies of energy, because they are not handled with tender loving care–thus becoming a case for prayer, appealing to God or the Spiritual Hierarchy with gratitude to bless the food in order to cleanse it and nourish/heal the body;  still, even most humans today have lost touch with the very purpose of this practice.

18. For more on these topics, to realize one’s (starseed or conscious human’s) purpose here, to understand fully the awakening of consciousness, the four books/authors below are strongly recommended:

TIMELINE

35 Million Years Ago

  • Etheric intelligent civilization created and
    are designated the guardians of Earth, but they were to find
    physical guardians also

26 Million Years Ago

  • Bipedal Dinoid with 200 IQ (from Bellatrix system in the constellation of Orion) and Bipedal Reptoid with 200 IQ colonies (from one of the lesser known stars in the constellation of Sagittarius) arrive and inhabit Earth
  • Spiritual Hierarchies of Earth send much love to these colonies
  • Mammalian species evolve to sentiency. These bipedal mammals were called the pre-cetaceans
  • Pre-cetaceans provide ample food for all 3 colonies in exchange for technology (which would in turn improve their production rate further)
  • 3 civilizations coexist in harmony trading among one another for 8 million years, all thee civilizations develop advanced forms of space/time travel
  • The pre-cetaceans develop their spiritual side extensively (psychic abilities, etc.)

10 Million Years Ago

  • Dinoid/Reptoid Alliance (from Bellatrix) ended their trade and cooperation with the pre-cetaceans – they believed they were superior and should therefore control all other beings.
  • Over the next 10,000 years the Earth Dinoids and Reptoids become more and more influenced by the Bellatrix Dinoid/Reptoid Alliance.
  • Dinoid/Reptoids decide -during these 10,000 years- to destroy the entire pre-cetacean race through various psychological war tactics
  • Pre-cetaceans sense this aggression (through their high psychic abilities) and realize the threat presented now by the Dinoid/Reptoid civilizations.

8 Million Years Ago

  • Pre-cetaceans decide to implode their fusion reactors located in the Ural Mountain range (with the Earth Spiritual Hierarchies giving them permission to do so) in a preemptive counter strike
  • Pre-cetaceans divide into two groups: one group evacuates out of our solar system (to the constellations of Pegasus and Cetus), and the other group enters the oceans to find haven. They eventually evolved over a period of 4 million years to become Earth’s present day cetaceans (i.e. the dolphins and whales)
  • Pre-cetaceans then implode their fusion reactors, thus destroying 98% of the Dinoid/Reptoid civilizations on Earth; the remaining 2% evacuated to the planet Maldek (a planet within our solar system)
  • With the Dinoid/Reptoid now no longer present on Earth, the Earth Spiritual Hierarchies and the cetaceans had to find a new suitable guardian/steward for the Earth land (since the cetaceans were guardians of Earth sea). They searched the galaxy to a distant star system 80 light years from the Sun.
  • After 2 to 3 million years of searching the galaxy, a primitive aquatic species that was starting to emerge from the oceans was discovered on the fourth planet of the Vega system. This species had creation myths, a language, and a hunting and gathering culture.
  • The Spiritual Hierarchies of the Vega system were then asked if they would permit this particular species to be vastly altered genetically to accelerate their evolution so that they may become a guardian species. The Vega Spiritual Hierarchies agreed.
  • Thus the traces of the first humans originated in the Vega star system. Their technology improved very quickly, and once they had developed star travel technology they started to migrate into nearby star systems (for a period of 2.5 million years)

4 Million Years BC

  • Galactic Federation was formed
  • Sirius B was colonized
  • Earth was selected for seeding

2 Million Years BC

  • Mars and Venus colonized
  • Hybornea colony founded on Earth

1 Million Years BC

  • Dinoid/Reptoids were building up their forces in the planet Maldek during all this time
  • Dinoids/Reptoids have a mass attack on both our solar system and also the nearby ones
  • Colonies on Earth (Hybornea), Mars and Venus were totallydestroyed.
  • Dinoids and Reptoid therefore regain control over the solar system for a period of 80,000 years.
  • In response to this the Galactic Federation planned a counterattack to reintroduce humans into this system. They arranged for a battle planet (4 times the diameter of the Earth) to come into the solar system and destroy the planet Maldek – which was the Dinoid/Reptoid stronghold. The remains of the planet Maldek are what we can now see as the asteroid belt

900,000 Years BC

  • Human colony was again founded on Earth called Lemuria (a Vedic society without rulers, laws or religion lived in Oneness with God and Nature) that lived in the 4th dimension (a higher consciousness realm) on this planet.
  • Over the next 850,000 years the Lemurians spread across the entire planet

500,000 Years BC

  • Lemurians founded what was called daughter colonies–the main ones being Atlantis, Yu (Central China and Tibet), Mu (South America), and also the Libyan/Egyptian
    colony

100,000 Years
BC

  • Atlantis, Yu and Libyan/Egyptian colonies are declared daughter empires
  • As the empires developed the Atlanteans began to acquire a feeling of uniqueness about their culture that led to feelings of separateness from the other daughter empires.
  • After some time the Atlanteans felt that THEY should become the mother empire, and quickly began to have a strong desire to destroy the Lemurians in order to gain full power.
  • The Atlanteans then began forming alliances with renegade Pleiadians and Alpha Centaurians (which had hierarchical systems of government) to further develop their technologies

25,000 Years BC

  • After waiting patiently for many years for just the right moment to attack the Lemurian empire, the Atlanteans decided to attack and destroy Lemuria with the help of their renegade Pleiadian allies.
  • They would accomplish this by taking the Earth’s other moon (Earth had 2 moons in those times) out of orbit by using force fields until it was as close as possible to the Lemurian empire, and then the moon was destroyed resulting in a catastrophic shower of meteors. This destroyed much of Lemuria, but this also resulted in many pressures being inflicted upon the tectonic plates, resulting in the gas chambers under Lemuria to implode and thus sink most of the Lemurian
    continent.

From Atlantis To The Great Flood

  • Yu empire would not bow down to the hierarchical rule of Atlantis and Libyan/Egyptian empires and was thus forced to go underground (literally). Today, they form what is known as the subterranean Kingdom of Agartha or Shamballah (not to be confused with Shambala on the Inner Spiritual Plane)
  • Power and technology-driven Atlantis forms 10 ruling districts, each with its own King. These Kings together formed the governing council of Atlantis.

25,000 – 15,000 Years BC

  • The royal governing council of Atlantis decide that a new form of government was desperately needed in which a superior ruling class could be established and sustained by their pretense that they had been empowered by a God-Force. Autocracy was thus born and was in full control enforcing a period of peace and stability.
  • The Atlanteans approved the experimenting on human genetics/DNA by master geneticists of the Pleiadian renegades to reduce the 12-strand DNA to the current double helix DNA in order to make humans more subservient and controllable (converting them into a slave race). This resulted in the dramatic reduction of consciousness, life spans, psychic/spiritual abilities, and brain usage.

15,000 – 10,000 Years BC

  • Throughout the years there were many wars among the various empires due to underground movements of people that wanted to reinstate the Lemurian “philosophy” of no hierarchy (i.e. leaders and laws). These wars led to vast destruction.
  • As a last resort the warring empires decided to attack the opponents crystal temples (which were responsible for maintaining two frozen layers of water known as Firmaments about 15,000 – 30,000 feet above ground surrounding Earth like a water base force shield which protected humans from harmful rays of the sun and also ensured a stable weather pattern at all times).
  • Unfortunately, the attacks were made simultaneously and caused the Firmament (the water layers) to be broken down and thus millions of gallons of water poured down onto the surface causing what is known biblically as “The Great Flood” (10,000 years ago)
  • The breakdown of the Firmament also resulted in the polar icecaps freezing as well as many climatic variations we have today to form.

After The Deluge

  • Only about 2 million people survived the Flood (from an original 65 million). Unfortunately many of the survivors were the mutant humans (the ones that had been genetically altered by the Pleiadians and Atlanteans into a much lower state of consciousness).
  • Also, with the destruction of the firmaments, humans were no longer protected by cosmic and atmospheric elements which resulted in further degradation of their DNA, consciousness, physique (they became smaller and shorter), brain usage and a fall of existence into the 3rd dimension.
  • A few different renegades (from Pleiades, Alpha and Beta Centauri) came to different parts of Earth after the Flood, seeing it as an opportune time to establish their own desired ideologies and also be seen as “godlike” to be revered (since there were mainly only mutant humans left, they worshipped these renegade gods). The humans were therefore easily controlled. Note that it was understood that the “heavens” from which these “gods” came was literally outer space or the cosmos.
  • These renegades established Earth’s royal houses with the concept of rulership by “divine right” (as in their heavenly or cosmic renegade ET origin–not to be confused with the Paradise Principality of The Creator). This concept of worshipping an elite has continued through to modern times whose monarchies still believe they were appointed by a divine right to rule over men. In Vedic (Lemurian) times, it was understood that no man was ruled by man.
  • Culture would rise against culture in wars claiming that the elite themselves were superior to the elite of the opposing faction–excessively ego driven.
  • We are now in times, though, that will finally bring to an end an approximate 10,000 years of sub-consciousness and regain our full consciousness that we deserve. This will be due to our entire solar system coming into contact with what is known as the the “Photon Belt

“The Earth Chronicles” (Time Charts)

About the author:

Zecharia Sitchin was raised in Palestine, where he acquired a profound knowledge of modern and ancient Hebrew, other Semitic and European languages, the Old Testament, and the history and archaeology of the Near East. He attended the London School of Economics and Political Science and graduated from the University of London, majoring in economic history. A leading journalist and editor in Israel for many years, he now lives and writes in New York. One of the few scholars able to read and understand Sumerian, Sitchin has based The Earth Chronicles, his recent series of books dealing with Earth’s and man’s histories and prehistories, on the information and texts written down on clay tablets by the ancient civilizations of the Near East. His books have been widely translated, reprinted in paperback editions, and converted to Braille for the blind.”

I. Events Before the Deluge Years Ago

  • 450,000 BC – On Nibiru, a distant member of our solar system, life faces slow extinction as the planet’s atmosphere erodes. Deposed by Anu, the ruler Alalu escapes in a spaceship and finds refuge on Earth. He discovers that Earth has gold that can be used to protect Nibiru’s atmosphere.
  • 445,000 BC – Led by Enki, a son of Anu, the Anunnaki land on Earth, establish Eridu – Earth Station I – for extracting gold from the waters of the Persian Gulf.

Drawing lots, Enlil wins command of Earth Mission; Enki is relegated to Africa. On departing Earth, Anu is challenged by Alalu’s grandson.
  • 400,000 BC – Seven functional settlements in southern Mesopotamia include a Spaceport (Sippar), Mission Control Center (Nippur), a metallurgical center (Shuruppak). The ores arrive by ships from Africa; the refined metal is sent aloft to orbiters manned by Igigi, then transferred to spaceships arriving periodically from Nibiru.
  • 380,000 BC – Gaining the support of the Igigi, Alalu’s grandson attempts to seize mastery over Earth. The Enlilites win the War of the Olden Gods.
  • 300,000 BC – The Anunnaki toiling in the gold mines mutiny. Enki and Ninhursag create Primitive Workers through genetic manipulation of Ape woman; they take over the manual chores of the Anunnaki. Enlil raids the mines, brings the Primitive Workers to the Edin in Mesopotamia. Given the ability to procreate, Homo Sapiens begins to
    multiply.
  • 200,000 BC – Life on Earth regresses during a new glacial period.

Michael Wynn’s “The Soul Travelers” reveals [his take] about mythology, the spirit world, magic, Satanism, and the Illuminati. This documentary reviews repeating themes in mythology and tales of ancient man. Then the video discusses the details of the spirit world, chakras, demons, and angels. It continues by delving into the details of magic, the occult, and Satanic Illuminati symbolism. The Soul Travelers is surely among the most revealing documentaries on the subject of magic and the occult, as it takes a revisionist look at the symbols of secret societies like the Freemasons. It concludes by examining the characters like Satan, Jesus, Babylon, and more from the perspective of the occult.

———————————————————————————–(9) Origins of the Reptilian Race, Atlanteans, Humans & the Montauk Project by Stewart Swerdlow

Author Stewart Swerdlow spoke about a Reptilian race which lives underground and first came here over 800,000 years ago. This information was imparted to him, he claimed, during the 13 years he served as an experimental subject in a government-sponsored mind control project in Montauk, NY. Between 200,000 to 300,000 people were experimented on in Montauk, and most of them did not survive, he said. Now, mind control can be employed worldwide via satellites, he noted.

Among the details Swerdlow shared about the Reptilians: They originated in the Draco star system, and arrived in our solar system via hollowed-out asteroids. They colonized a Pacific content called Lemuria and later battled with the Atlanteans. Eventually they formed a hybrid race with the Atlanteans. It is from this group that the Illuminati or ruling families descended. There are seven different species in the Draco empire. One type has white segmented skin, cat-like eyes, wings, and a pronounced jaw and teeth.

The Illuminati are planning a “staged alien invasion” to trick people into forming a one-world government and they’ll use holographic technology to project imaginary battles, Swerdlow warned. Ultimately, they seek to send millions of people out to colonize habitable moons of Jupiter and Saturn, he added. 

Biography
A gifted medical intuitive, Stewart Swerdlow is a clairvoyant who has the ability to see auric fields and personal archetypes as well as read DNA sequences and mind-patterns. His great-uncle, Yakov Sverdlov, was the first president of the Soviet Union, and his grandfather helped form the Communist Party in the United States in the 1930s. To ensure that his loyalties stayed with the US government, he was “recruited” for specific government mind-control experiments which enhanced his natural abilities.

He spent years in service to various US and foreign government agencies and special interest groups. His mind and body were used for genetic and mind-control experiments which led to severe illness, broken relationships, and premature Kundalini activation. After several years of deep self-analysis, Stewart merged with higher levels of his multidimensional self, which saved his life. Stewart has authored and co-authored with his wife, Janet, several books and lectures worldwide for a variety of groups, organizations, and large corporations. 

Wikipedia
The Montauk Project was alleged to be a series of secret United States government projects conducted at Camp Hero or Montauk Air Force Station on Montauk, Long Island for the purpose of developing psychological warfare techniques and exotic research including time travel. Jacques Vallée describes allegations of the Montauk Project as an outgrowth of stories about the Philadelphia Experiment.

Reptilians (also called reptoids, reptiloids, or draconians) are purported reptilian humanoids that play a prominent role in science fiction, as well as modern ufology and conspiracy theories. The idea of reptilians on Earth was popularized by David Icke, a conspiracy theorist who believes shape-shifting reptilian people control our world by taking on human form and gaining political power to manipulate our societies. Icke has claimed on multiple occasions that many of the world leaders are, or are possessed by, reptilians attempting to gain power to rule the world.

(10) The Hidden History of the Human Race by Michael Cremo

Michael Cremo is interviewed about his archeological discoveries and the cover up of the scientific community. Cremo gives several examples of archeological evidence that has been suppressed by the establishment in the name of “scientific conformity”. His books include ‘The Hidden History Of The Human Race’ and ‘Forbidden Archeology’. Richard Thompson is credited by Michael Cremo as a valuable partner in his research.

(11) Michael Tellinger on Adam’s Calendar (Ancient Goldmines) and the Origin of Humanity

Publisher and producer Michael Tellinger discussed his study of ancient ruins at the southern tip of Africa, which he believes were associated with a vanished civilization that ET visitors, the Anunnaki, brought together over 200,000 years ago, when they came here to mine gold. The ruins, which he’s investigated along with Johan Heine, consist of thousands of stone structures over a large area. The structures show evidence of their extreme antiquity through erosion and patina growth, he detailed. One of the most important ruins he referred to as “Adam’s Calendar,” a monolithic stone calendar that could mark time out by the day.

The Anunnaki tinkered with human genetics to make their mine workers, Tellinger said, referencing the work of Zecharia Sitchin. Among the ruins are hexagonal shapes clustered together like honeycombs, which he speculated could have been used as cloning tanks. Further, he suggested that many of the structures, made out of stones that contain quartz, were used as energy devices to power the large settlements.

By studying the area using aerial maps, Tellinger determined there were three great cities, some 60 x 60 miles each, one of which included Great Zimbabwe. Among the ruins, the first pyramids can be found, and details carved into some of the rocks include the Ankh symbol– thousands of years before the Egyptian civilization used it, he reported.

Sacred Heart Activations for Dec. 25 (by Sananda/Jesus); A Message from Hilarion on Transmuting Energies

25 12 2010

Sacred Heart

Lord Sananda Shares Information on the Sacred Heart Activations ~ Dec 2010
(Channeled Information)

Greetings,

It is Lord Sananda at your service. We are at a crossroads of frequencies as we are now moving into the Divine Purpose of each individual upon this planet. Some of the Divinity Within an individual will be completely different than your own. Some do not know what that means as they are still holding onto their belief systems of the lower forms of the Devotional Ray on a planetary level which has been out of existence for some time. It is time now for the Devotion of each individual upon this planet to be infused with the Christ Consciousness within them. Each of you participating in an active way have chosen to do so. Those that are not, have also chosen to do so. There can be no judgments or thought processes of who is accepting and who is not accepting. Your role, as Light Workers, upon this planet will be to take this Light within You, and expand it as much as possible. This is the direct reflection of what is occurring presently.

In order for the Earth’s energies to expand each of you need to expand it first within. You are the Way-Showers, the ones that are going to reach out to others. Some of you will do this in various ways. Not all is the same and this is the way it should be. Some will be conductors onto the land masses, some will teach, some will talk to groups, some will show, some will use vibrational frequencies, some will channel, some will connect with the higher realms and walk like the Master they have become, some create ceremonies and some may express themselves in other ways. Whatever way it appears in your life, is your own pathway. But all will reach out their hands onto the many that need to be awakened with love, patience, consideration, joy, acceptance, and bliss.

Each living organism upon this planet will be imbued with these energies on the 25th of December. Some will not accept it which will create more confliction in your lives; some will be ready to accept; and some will judge the process. It is your testing ground during this phase of your development of being a true Master upon this planet. First, and foremost, it is your duty to receive. In that receiving you will change yourself immensely. Some it may be unpleasant, and the tears will come. It is an essential component because the body will react to the consciousness of love that is being integrated within your hearts. Let the flood gates be totally open within your heart. Be an open book as the energy is fully received within your being. Allow the emotions to flow and allow the thoughts to cease. Expand yourself more fully that you ever have previously.

During the 12:12 Activation it is important to make a checklist of what you are feeling, the emotions, and the thoughts – emotions being the feminine energies within and the thoughts being the male energies within. We want both sides to be in full agreement completely. You are being assisted for these energies to be fully activated within you. They will both expand so the entranceway of the Sacred Heart can be acknowledged.

This process will continue through 12:12 and then move into 12:21. With the planetary alignment on this date it is going to assist you even more to fully accept the Divinity within you. You will go deeper even if you are not even trying; it will occur. Working through these energies are going to assist even more so; don’t work with them and the challenges will result. We want a clean heart center to prepare for the activation on the 25th of December.

On the 25th you will be ready to fully receive the Christ Consciousness that is the embodiment of the complete God Force right within you. We are all one family and now it is time for each of us to incorporate these energies. We are traveling just as you are; readying ourselves for this great movement. All that you have aspired to on the Inner Plane of your Higher Self, your Soul, and your Oversoul on this date will be united as never before. All the debris from previous lifetimes need to be re-birthed as you move forward.

What happens to the Ones that are not acknowledging these energies? They will still be imbued with the Christ Consciousness within. They will not know what has occurred, but they will feel different. Some may feel moments of elation while others will feel moments of grieve. The duality is going to get wider. Do not try to change people with your words; it must be done with energetics and kindness. “Kill them with kindness” and they will die the death that is needed.

You will see people coming out of the woodwork trying to make changes in people by the old ways. Self help methods, third dimensional elements that do not include frequencies will cease to exist in the fifth dimensional realm. It is important to fully access your inner awareness within you with the vibration that is coming into your being. The fifth dimensional body can only handle energetics as the cellular structure is changing greatly and the type of teachers you need to be may create a feeling of uncomfortable in this moment. You have the wisdom and knowledge, but you have been afraid to use it. NOW IS THE TIME….You will find that with these energies that you will need to raise your vibration continually. Utilize the voice, use your drumming, your singing bowls, Tibetan Bells, and frequencies of a higher nature than the earth’s existence. As you do these elements, then the changes will result. VIBRATIONAL WORK IS THE KEY TO YOUR EVOLVEMENT OF THE SELF.

Depending upon where you are within your initiation process will be the resulting factor. Study higher forms of thought; incorporate them; use them wisely and it will be returned to you. Learn to shut off the mind and be in silence. These will be your greatest times of self awareness as your higher essence will fully be acknowledged within your physical being.

Most of all, please do not worry about the others. I know it is sad when you see another that you love dearly not wake up. It is their choosing to do so, and putting energy into their lower emotions will bring you back into the downward spiraling. Give them compassion; that will be the best medicine they can receive. Constantly raise your vibrations as you are still living in duality. Until you reach the 5th dimensional level, you will have to work at it every moment.

Your habits, food intake, sleep patterns, and physical symptoms are going to change for the better. All of the ascension symptoms you have been feeling, will become stabilized if you allow it to happen. Again, fight it and they will fight you back. Embrace it, and the body will relax into the existence that is necessary.

Utilize the tools I have given you, find new ones, develop ones yourself, and experience life in a different way of being than you ever thought could be possible. Embrace this time of awakening as this is what you have been waiting for. You are the Ones that we have been waiting for and now is your time to Shine.

If you find it challenging, talk to others that are farther down the path than you. Reach out, have vibrational healing work done on you, change your diet into more vegetarian which will assist in balancing the Earth Energies within you, utilize herbs when the physical healing needs to be done, and take the time to heal, nurture, and accept the integration that is going to occur for each of you.

Those of you that have been on this path longer, reach out to others. I have asked Christine to share with me because she has aspired this pathway for a very long time; much longer than she realizes. Please contact her because I know if you feel aligned with her energies, she can help and she will assist at no cost to you. I am offering her services but the rewards she will be receiving in return will be way beyond of what you could pay her. I am not saying if you have the means to pay, not to take advantage; but if you do not, please ask. She has great knowledge and expertise beyond what she understands due to her availability to receive from the God Force, and we are right here with her, and each of you.

December 31st will be your day to relax, enjoy, and connect to the Earth as the changes will take place in your life. I promise you this, it is way beyond what you could ever think is possible, and then some.

It is my Divine Pleasure to be of service to you in these moments. I speak for the Christ Consciousness of the God Force of the 352 levels of the Mahatma, 49 dimensions of reality, from the Planetary, through the Solar, the Galactic, the Universal, the Multi-Universal, and the Cosmic, Creative Sources of Oneness.

I Am Lord Sananda as your humble servant of Light.

A Message from Hilarion (Lord of the 5th Ray) on Transmuting Energies

December 19-26, 2010

Beloved Ones,

The coming week will bring with it deep feelings of joy and contentment for those of you who have been doing the work of transmutation and there will be a general feeling of upliftment within your inner Being. The road to equilibrium and balance has been long and filled with many steps forward and many steps back. This is the way of learning that has been the norm for many centuries upon your Planet Earth. All of that is about to change, Beloved Ones. Soon you will be experiencing a new kind of learning, a learning that is fun, that is filled with joy, with wonder, awe and the sense of magic, a feeling that all things are possible, for indeed it is so!

We thank each of you for taking time each day to honor those of the Spiritual Hierarchy during the Seven Sacred Weeks. We are filled with joy that so many have taken up these calls and that by doing so, we begin to work more consciously in a greater unity than ever before. Each of your homes are filled to capacity with Beings of Light and the Elemental kingdoms. Try to become aware of the sense of wonder, of magic in the air. Be open to miracles and synchronicities. You are here to experience Life and as the days move forth into the New Year, you will be experiencing Life in a state of happiness and joy.

Your ability to keep the Cosmic Christ Light pouring through you into the crystalline core of Mother Earth and in anchoring and grounding it each day is helping our Earth Mother in her ascension process. During this Solstice, many opportunities are presented to each of you to become more conscious of the ‘unseen’ worlds around you. Hold to your visions and pour out your Love to all around you. Know that a single smile can light up an entire room and change the denseness of the energies in an instant. One person who daily works with Light can stabilize many chaotic energies. This is the task that is before you as you celebrate with your loved ones and help to transmute old energies and patterns between you. Great good is being accomplished to clear the way for the new ascended Earth reality.

There is so very much that is occurring multi-dimensionally within each of you. Many of you are feeling that you are functioning in several Worlds at once and indeed, you are! You have always been doing this but you did not retain this conscious awareness of it before. If you are not experiencing this yet, do not worry that there is something amiss with you, for each person’s personal path is unfolding slowly, gently, like the petals of a flower that blooms for all to see and enjoy. During the festive season, try to practice moderation in your choice of foods, snacks, drinks, thoughts, words and deeds, for you are now practicing alchemists who are wielding your power in constructive and loving ways in service to All That Is.

Keep your thoughts sunny. warm and bright, see a sphere of Golden Light surrounding you at all times and when you are in the company of others, visualize/feel this Golden Light beaming into their heart chakras. In this way, the road to true Sisterhood/Brotherhood is paved. Hold your heads high, Dear Ones, for you have been achieving victory in your quest for the Holy Grail, knowing that it is YOU! The Light of Purity that burns in your hearts is a delight to behold. The greater this Light, the more of your Christed Self may make Its presence felt in every aspect of your Life. You will know this when you start reacting/responding to old patterns in a more thoughtful, observant way and can maintain detachment in all ways although still being the loving Being you have always been.

As you release and transmute the old, intend that it all be instantly and permanently replaced with the Golden Light of the Christ Love and the Christ Consciousness and keep this vision firmly in your mind.  Dare to think BIG, Beloved Hearts, for you are so much more than you can imagine at this time and you will take great delight in this exercise as events move forward. You are all loved beyond measure and you never walk alone.

Until next week….

I AM Hilarion

An overview of the dramatic changes to world civilization by Tony Wicks

24 12 2010

INTRODUCTION
As incredible as it may seem to many people, humanity on Earth is in the process of an evolutionary change in how we experience life. We are to become a galactic civilization, interacting positively with the many star system civilizations in our galaxy and universe, and indeed other universes. It is our true destiny to change from a society based on fear and competition, to one based on love, peace, and harmony. The current chaos is merely part of the quickening change.

We live in an invisible universe (often referred to as spiritual realms, or Heaven) as well as the visible universe, which is the only part most people believe exists. The real truth has been hidden from us so we would eventually remember and discover who we really are, great immortal beings of universal knowledge and wisdom, closely connected to our physical brothers and sisters in space, and those in the spiritual realms. Unfortunately many governments, religions, and philosophies have been manipulated to keep much of the truth from us so others could retain power and control. The recent retaliation to so-called terrorist attacks in the USA will, in time, be shown to be one of the final attempts to keep us under control. However, it is time for a great change in understanding by world populations, who mainly want peace, despite what is presented to us by a manipulated mass media.

Many people feel “something is about to happen”, but because much of the current change is in the invisible universe, before manifesting in the visible universe, it is difficult to comprehend at first. We have actually been part of a grand “experiment”, having agreed at a higher level of understanding to be here in these exciting “end times”, the end of one civilization, and the beginning of a new one, known as the Seventh Golden Age that we will co-create.

Much has been written, spoken, and prophesied about our future. Some of this information was true at the original time of recording, but has since changed. Some of it was never true, and was intended to manipulate us. And some information was correct and still holds firm today. Sorting all this out is the difficult part. That is why what is “truth” for one person, is not necessarily “truth” for someone else. You need to apply your own discernment to all information, including what I am presenting in this article. People are waking up in varying degrees as we continue our learning.

Some information is difficult to absorb, such as the nature of our hollow Earth and the ancient civilizations still living there. Like the fact that many people have actually traveled back in time to change the future of this planet and universe, many eons ago. And like the fact we have discovered how to make war ships invisible and time travel again, since 1943 and how the Apollo Moon Program was a cover-up of higher technology.

Secret trips had already been made to establish bases on the Moon and Mars, and to explore other parts of our solar system since the early 60s. Finally, to whet your appetite a little more, or make you more skeptical, depending on where your awakening path is at, Earth is expected to slow its rotation, stop, and reverse its spin without catastrophes, along with being moved in space with the rest of the solar system to become part of the Sirian star system!

ASCENSION AND DIMENSIONAL SHIFTS
The Earth has a consciousness of its own, it is a living being. The Divine Plan of the Creator, which we all follow, knowingly or unknowingly, calls for the Earth to ascend from the reality we know as the 3rd Dimension, to the 4th Dimension (an intermediate or temporary existence) and then to the 5th Dimension. This has long been suggested to be around the end of 2012, or earlier. Humanity, and all other life must be ready to ascend, or increase vibration, to move with the planet most people no longer have the time to go through separate and individual ascension processes that could take another 200 or 390 years. They are in their last incarnation and should ascend to help establish the next creation on Earth and the whole universe. This means keeping these bodies and gradually bringing them back to about the age of 30. Those not ready, will incarnate back into the 3rd Dimension on another planet. They cannot return to the higher dimension Earth. Some people’s “contract” is up and they will return to previous star systems, if they wish, and even ascend higher than the 5th Dimension. No one on Earth was originally from this planet.

Ascension is the integration of spirit and matter. It is the process where our physical, emotional, mental, and all spiritual bodies combine to create a fully conscious being. We take on a Light body. We are really spiritual beings having a human experience. We have other aspects of ourselves who exist on other worlds, in other dimensions or realities. In essence, we are all physical Angels with a giant amnesia problem. Through ascension, we realize we are all connected; we are all One with all other life in the universe. Everything came from one Creator. Race differences, war, owning property, land rights, in fact all aspects of our current world, are really illusory. We live in a giant hologram.

Many dimensions, also known as planes, mansions, and parallel worlds exist in the same space. They only differ by degrees of vibration. When we increase our vibration sufficiently, we change dimension. A measure of the vibration rate of the Earth, its heartbeat, is the Schumann Resonance, which appears to be measured differently by some Earth scientists compared with higher realm information. For years it stayed at 7. 8 cycles per second (hertz). It began moving up at the time of the Harmonic Convergence. August 1987, the year of much spiritual awakening. In theory, when it is constantly at 13. 0, we are in the 4th Dimension. According to some sources we have been sitting at 12. 9 for some time, and will move to 13. 8 in the near future.

Ascension is expected to be achieved when we are fully exposed to the photon belt energies. This is a toroid-shaped energy band that our solar system passes through twice in a 26, 000 year cycle. Each pass in previous cycles has lasted about 2, 000 years. We are currently in the belt, but protected from premature fatal ascension by a holographic energy field placed around our solar system by the Galactic Federation of Light, our allies from other civilizations in our Milky Way Galaxy. As our vibration rate increases, some photon energies are gradually released into our solar system.

Initially, a 12-strand RNA/DNA system will have replaced our body’s current 2-strand system. We will have increased our 7-chakra system of body energy vortexes to a 13-chakra system. We will also consciously use 100 percent of our brain, instead of the 10 to 20 percent currently utilized. Full consciousness will return to us, that are the awareness of why we are here, what we are to do in the future, and what our past lives have been. We will have universal knowledge at our finger tips, or rather, our brain receptors, and have super-human abilities.

GALACTIC HUMANS
As ascended galactic humans, we will be able to interact with all sentient life forms in our galaxy, universe, and beyond. We will regain extraterrestrial powers that we lost many lifetimes ago. Telepathy, teleportation, and interplanetary travel
without space craft will be possible using our Light body or merkaba.

Some people will be able to revisit or return to their previous star system that they came from. Some will help to repopulate Mars, Venus, and Maldek which will be re-formed from the Asteroid Belt. The majority will stay on Earth for the new Golden Age, and will help create it. Earth will be a showcase planet, a major centre for trade, conferences, and headquarters for the Intergalactic Union of many galaxies near us.

Those who populate Earth will become her true stewards, anchoring Light and supporting energy nodes and grids around the planet at great temples. The whales and dolphins have been burdened with this task for far too long. We will live in magnificent crystalline cities within the Earth, although they will seem as if they are on the surface. This is how all higher dimension civilizations live on other planets. It is how many Lemurians and Atlanteans already live within the shell of our hollow Earth. We will be meeting them soon. Our new civilization will again be based on spiritual concepts of Lemuria, which in turn, was based on Sirius B concepts.

Our current structure of governments will cease. Higher intelligent beings will help us set up new governing councils based  on appropriate universal principles. We will have the final say in fine-tuning new government, without interference from those who currently control governments.

SHADOW GOVERNMENT AND CONTROL
one of the greatest restrictions to our progress is the repressive control of world “official” governments by a secretive Shadow Government, which also limits the type of daily news or “truth” we receive through the world’s mass media. This is why many people are not aware of the current and coming great changes to civilization. It is the reason we have fear-based news most of the time on television and in newspapers.

Keeping people in fear and distress through news, financial matters, wars and violence, and mind control, plus filled with harmful foods, drinks, legal and illegal drugs, as well as being subjected to harmful chemtrails, are some of the means to keep our vibrations low. This makes ascension so much harder to achieve.

This negative control has also been an aspect of many religions and philosophical groups for a long time. The good news is that this manipulation and control of worldwide societies is quickly coming to an end. A dictatorial New World Order/One World Government, masquerading as a democratic globalization program, will not be allowed by higher realms intervening on our behalf. We agreed to this intervention before incarnating here, despite some people believing it contravenes `free choice”, which it does not under the Creator’s divine plan. Those who don’t believe in a Creator or this plan are in for a big surprise!

Disclosures on how we have been manipulated are soon to be announced, and will commence some wonderful changes.

The little known aspect of the Shadow Government is that it, in turn, has been controlled by negative extraterrestrial beings who have given them much advanced technology for their control on Earth. However, we should not hate these aspects of our society. We have probably all exhibited negative traits in past lives just for the experience! It is best to send them love and have nothing to do with their controlling schemes whenever we have the choice. In the near future, all darkness on Earth will be transmuted to Light, and in doing so, will create a stronger Light. Many of the Shadow Government former ET dark allies are now part of the forces of Light in this galaxy. Many former Shadow Government people have also now aligned with the Light The remaining ones can either do the same, or continue incarnating on another 3rd Dimension planet until they are ready to ascend to higher dimensions. It is their choice.

HIGHER INTELLIGENCE
Our universe is teaming with life at various levels of evolution. We are more or less at the bottom, but are about to make a giant move in the “up” direction. The highest intelligence is the collective energies we term God, the Creator, or numerous other terms. From here, and down through many descending levels of vibration, known as dimensions, planes, or mansions, exist a multitude of beings, initially in spiritual form, then semi-solid, and then in dense bodies like our current ones. We know these beings by terms such as Elohim, Archangels, Lords of Light, Angels, Ascended Masters, and finally extraterrestrials, which have humanoid bodies or those we can call dinoid, insectoid, and reptoid. Television reveals some of these forms in shows like “Star Trek”. We have all existed in these higher energy forms before, but intertwined with other aspects of ourselves. We are each part of a soul group of approximately 12 souls, and part of a soul family of approximately 144.

Billions of souls (aspects of God) were sent to Earth to see if they could find their way back to the vibration of God or the purest Light without memory of where they had been. This has never been done in this way anywhere before. Thus the uniqueness of our current situation or “experiment”. Earth is the fulcrum for change and peace in this galaxy and universe. Evolution elsewhere cannot proceed successfully until we ascend to the 5th Dimension. Many civilizations are watching us with intense interest. Higher dimensions can see through to lower dimensions, but we cannot see higher dimensions from here. In recent years, mankind has had virtually unlimited access to the highest beings of Light who provide guidance through channeled contacts and sometimes even manifesting in etheric or physical form.

DIVINE INTERVENTION
Divine intervention is allowed to occur in a planet’s affairs when spiritual progress is hindered. In fact it is part of our incarnation contract which calls for it at our stage of evolution, before we connect permanently again with other galactic civilizations.

The intervention is carried out at a physical level by our space brothers and sisters, and at a spiritual level by the Spiritual Hierarchy. Our space brethren include the Galactic Federation of Light, a sort of “United Nations” of our galaxy, comprising over 200, 000 or 90% of the civilizations in it. It was formed over 4 million years ago. About 60% of physical beings in our galaxy are non-humanoid in appearance.

Both types travel in spacecraft. An inter-galactic group of ships and personnel, the Ashtar Command, work closely with the Galactic Federation. The Spiritual Hierarchy consists of the Elohim orders, the Time Lord councils, the Angelic realms, Ascended Masters, and the Devic kingdom. They don’t need space craft, although the Ascended Masters often “hang out” in Ashtar Command ships.

Incidentally, the Time Lords regulate time, which together with Light, are the two elements that compose Creation.

The Galactic Federation have over 18 million space craft in our solar system at any one time, rotating from a much larger base. Competition is high among members to be here and assist at this great “end times” period! Some mother ships are thousands of kilometres long. The smaller shuttle craft are more commonly seen in our atmosphere.

A first contact program by the Federation has been in place for about 10 years now. This will most likely culminate in mass sightings of craft, a change in world governance structures, a unification of all societies, and a return of our personal sovereignty. Then, we can be shown how to handle and adapt to ascension and full consciousness. Much of this is expected to be carried out on spacecraft and within magnificent underground cities.

EARTH CHANGES
It is necessary for the Earth to cleanse and rebalance herself in preparation for ascension. This preparation has been part of the reason for many extreme weather conditions that the planet has been going through in recent years. Much volcanic and earthquake activity has been loosening the tectonic underwater landmasses of Lemuria in the Pacific Ocean (which sank about 25, 000 years ago), and Atlantis in the Atlantic Ocean (which sank about 12, 000 years ago). As part of the rebalancing, these landmasses of Lemuria and Atlantis must come to the surface. They hold ancient temples and pyramids, which have to be reactivated.

Magma upwelling within the Earth’s shell towards her solid crust has been heating the oceans for some time now. This causes the so-called El Nino and La Nina effects, particularly in equatorial regions.

Two large ice crystal layers, known as firmaments, will be re-formed around the planet. These layers keep certain energies contained on Earth and will give the whole planet a semi-tropical climate. They also prevent degrading rays from reaching Earth from outer space. Water from the melting polar caps and seawater will be used in the firmaments. The collapse of these layers in ancient times was the cause of great floods and much loss of life on the planet. People in those times were twice as tall as we are now due to the protection from DNA degradation. The layers will form from about 15, 000 to 18,000 ft (4, 500m to 5, 500m), and from 35, 000 to 38, 000ft (10, 700 to 11, 600m). Gaps will occur at the North and South Poles, and the firmaments will be higher when following contours of high mountain ranges.

Other landmasses will alter, and more seas and inland lakes will be formed. All life forms, animals, and plants will be removed before this happens. Humanity will be mainly relocated into inner Earth cities while all this occurs. Even after our ascension, some Earth changes are expected to continue.

THE NEAR FUTURE
More people can now confirm what is happening by tuning into their Higher Self /Soul/I Am Presence during meditation. This  “going within” process has been practiced on Earth well before religions and philosophical groups formed. People can assist by visualizing Light energies in the form of unconditional love anchoring onto and within the planet. Love conquers all! It produces peace, healing, harmony, and oneness.

The anticipated changes to a new monetary system and world forgiveness of debt is likely to also change government structures in the near future. If the few remaining controlling cabals on this planet don’t allow these changes, then first contact with our space and spiritual friends is likely to be brought on more quickly than expected. Should the changes occur, then greater financial and spiritual abundance will be available to all mankind. Divisions between races and countries will cease.

There are many people working quietly in the wings of government, judicial and financial systems to assist the implementation of these changes. We should be introduced to them soon. More free energy devices will become available, particularly for powering or homes and transport systems. These inventions have been available for some time. This has been pointed out in the Disclosure Project crusade, headed by Dr Steven Greer and friends who are showing the world the extent of Earth’s secret contact with ET civilizations over the last 60 years. We are in the Time of Truth where many hidden truths, including those of the Shadow Government must come to the surface.

The occurrence of many disastrous Earth changes, producing much loss of life, is now unlikely due to the great increase in mass consciousness in recent weeks since the September 11 atrocities, caused not by isolated terrorists but by those people controlling the US Government It is still possible though, on a day-to-day basis, that some volcanic and earthquake activity will still occur.

Those loved ones who have already passed over are likely to join us in higher dimensions, if that was their choice. Others who have, and will pass over in the future, may already have decided at a higher level that they are not ready for ascension to higher dimensions yet. They will reincarnate onto a 3rd dimensional planet, possibly held within the large battle planet Nibiru, soon to become a part of our solar system.





Singularity of Heart

22 12 2010

by Shimmering Horizons

The Lord, O Arjuna, dwells in the Heart of every being, and He by his delusive power spins round all beings set as if on a machine” – Krishna’s words in the Gìta

The Eastern spiritual traditions have always emphasized the core importance of the Heart in relation to the human soul, consciousness and God. The seat of the Self, they say, resides within the Heart and from this center the whole world arise. But to really understand the significance of this statement, in the context of the holofractographic universe theory, we must go beyond just its symbolical meaning. If we look to the medicinal teachings of the east, transmitted to us through the ancient Upanishads, we find that the human body is invariably viewed as an expression of subtle energy or prana (from the Sanskrit root “full”). Central to these schools are the etheric, or in our case, hyperdimensional topology of the body’s energy field. This field is often described as a rotating torus with vortexes entering at the crown of the head and the bottom of the spine, spiraling through the spinal column creating seven nexus points, or whorls of focused energy, called chakras (Sanskrit for “wheel” or “turning”). These nexus points are said to be vortices of subtle energies flowing through the body, transferring energy and information between the physical and “divine realm”. In the Upanishads the various chakras of the human body are also associated with different geometric symbols, signifying each individual chakra’s connection to a specific element. Interestingly the Heart chakra, “Anahata“, is invariably depicted as a hexagram ordained with twelve lotus petals. The upward triangle is said to symbolize Shiva, the male principle and the downward triangle symbolizes Shakti, the female principle. A perfect balance is attained when these two forces are joined together in harmony. As we have seen, the hexagram is an absolutely central geometry in the HFU model, pointing to the polarized tetrahedral structure of the vacuum. Also, twelve converging vectors around a center is the geometry of the vacuum singularity: the cubeoctahedron. As we shall see, these similarities are more than mere coincidence…

Modern science has recently discovered that the heart emits very high levels of radiation. In fact it is now known that the heart is the largest generator of electromagnetic energy in the body, and measurements reveal that the frequency of the heart’s energy field is 5000 times stronger than that of the brain! This field moves at the speed of light and extends up to 12 feet around the body, unimpeded by organic tissues. This alone should compel us to reconsider the role of the heart within our body. The HeartMath Institute has found that negative emotions of stress, anger or frustration are associated with erratic and incoherent patterns in the heart’s rhythm, whereas positive emotions of love and compassion leads to smooth, coherent ones. They have also discovered that changes in the heart’s rhythmic coherency, creates corresponding changes in its electromagnetic field. High coherency (positive emotions) generates smooth sine-wave like patterns, making the field more organized. Incoherency make it more asymmetric and disorganized. Neurocardiologic research has shown that the heart communicates with the brain in several ways: neurologically (transmission of nerve impulses), biochemically (hormones and neurotransmitters) and biophysically (pressure waves). Now we have evidence of direct, coherent energetic communication through electromagnetic field interactions as well. Using electrocardiographic (ECG) and electroencephalographic (EEG) instruments (for meassuring heart and brain waves) it has even been scientifically verified that when two people are in proximity of each other the “heart field” of one person affects the brainwaves of another! Not only is the energy and information flowing through your heart’s energy field transmitted throughout your body and brain, but it interacts with other people as well, communicating your internal state to the envirnoment.

Taking these meassurments into consideration with the Holofractographic model describing the universe as embedded black hole singularities it becomes not so unreasonable to suggest that our heart may contain its own singularity at its core, and accordingly a topology of a dual torus creating a powerful electromagnetic energy field surrounding it. Interestingly it is a known fact that the body loose a certain amount of weight upon its death, again suggesting the presence of a gravitational curvature in the space-time continuum permeating the body. It is interesting to note that ancient texts suggests that we have a hyperdimensional energy field around the body in the implosive geometry as well, assuming the shape of a star-tetrahedron.

 

***

This generates quite a different scenario in which the Heart is like a biophysical Sun in the solar system of our body. The singularity of the heart keeps the system alive, while radiating energy throughout the body and gravitating the system towards wholeness, organization and order. As we have seen, the cells of our body are actually billions of mini black holes, spinning at the speed of light. Yet the singularity of the Heart may be the crucial fractal resolution (ref. scaling law) through which these billions of smaller cells stay organized and coherent relative to each other. Without the Sun the solar system disintegrates. In the same way the Heart may be the sustainer of the bodily form, keeping it coherent and alive. What we call “death” may only be this black hole singularity of the Heart changing frequency (scale resolution), and the consquent disorganization of mini black holes comprising the body. Yet nothing is lost as energy is continuously recycled through the vacuum state. The singulairty only reorganize to other frequencies of the Cosmic Symphony.

As I touch upon in other posts, the dual-torus topology of space-time may also provide us with a mechanical basis for understanding consciousness, wherein perceptions and the sense of self arise as information flows into vacuum singularity. If this is the case, the seat of Consciousness may well be found to originate from the Heart and not the brain, again echoing the ancient teachings of the east. If we within our own heart have infinite curvature towards Cosmic Singularity and oneness with the Infinite then, truly, our heart is the Heart of God.

*

Both intuitively and culturally we treasure the Heart, and quite instinctively we refer to it as the seed of life and soul. Our science however has been drawn to the complexities of neurons and grey matter in the brain and, perhaps prematurely, declared it to be the seat of our self aware being. Now, as this chasm between our science and intuition can heal, we may reclaim our rightful place in the Heart, and gravitate back towards our God given state of Oneness and unconditional Love.

The Legend of Atlantis – It’s Time to Wake Up (25 pts)

16 12 2010

Thousands of years ago the gods came down to Earth from the stars to initiate a genesis. Human civilization was formed and reached a peak with Atlantis. A dark age began and the battle of Atlantean gods led to its fall. A secret brotherhood brought Atlantean secret teachings before the fall to Egypt. Through all civilizations and with inspiration from extraterrestrian guards the secret Atlantean brotherhood managed all political systems with an educational mission. The thrilling documentation shows for the first time the secret activities of a brotherhood in relations with invisible masters from Shambhala and Agharta and the secret about the hollow earth.

Following the catastrophe in Atlantis all nations were dispersed. A part of the Atlantean brotherhood’s secret knowledge survived in Egypt, in India and in Tibet. The heirs of these secret brotherhoods led mankind during the dark age…through Atlantean knowledge and through all ages. In modern times the Freemasons, Templars and Illuminati brotherhoods were formed. After World War I the Neutemplerorden and Thule society emerged in Munich and Vienna. New occult sects which saw ‘satan’ in the old Freemason lodges. With Hitler these occult sects came to power. This thrilling documentation shows for the first time the background of the Third Reich and its intellect which led to the catastrophy of World War II.

Atlantean secret knowlege tells us the legend of mankind and those souls, who have to undergo cycles. With the fall of Atlantis a gigh civilization cycle had ended. All prophecies and more recent Earth changes point out that today’s mankind has reached the end of the next experience cycle. Up to the year 2011 the most serious Earth and climate changes, earthquakes, social and political changes have been predicted. This thrilling documentation shows the prophecies of ELIA, the returned prophet and his message on the last days, Christ’s return and the space Brotherhood

Milleniums have passed… since the high culture of Atlantis sank with a catastrophe through power abuse of some corrupt scientists. All humans of that time, who also experienced the descent into the dark age, are being reincarnated today. The thrilling documentation shows the return of the Atlantean light children and allows deep insight into the role of the lightworkers and brotherhoods of Atlantis. It shows why some souls reincarnate today and act as environmental protectionists, therapists, artists, esoterics etc. for the healing of the earth. Addresses also the Space Brotherhood events–11:11, the hollow earth, Shambhala and Agharta.

The Four Yugas or Epochs: The Hindu Concept of 4 Yugas

14 12 2010

By Subhamoy Das

According to Hindu scriptures, all mortal beings are destined to pass through four great epochs in every cycle of creation and destruction. This divine cycle turns full-circle at the end of what is known as kalpa. A kalpa is a yuga cycle, which is a period of 10,000 divine years, and is divided into four ages or yugas (Sanskrit yuga = age/epoch). According to one calculation, one yuga cycle is estimated to be 4,320,000 years, and one kalpa 4,320,000,000 years.

About the 4 Yugas  [4 Ages]

The four great epochs in Hinduism are: Satya Yuga, Treta Yuga, Dwapar Yuga and Kali Yuga. Satya Yug or the Age of Truth is said to last for four thousand divine years, Treta Yuga for three thousand, Dwapara Yug for two thousand and Kali Yuga will last for one thousand divine Years that equals to 432,000 earthly years.

It is also believed that three of these great ages have already passed away, and we are now living in the fourth one. What these ages exactly mean, and why this division, it’s hard to explain, because they appear too unrealistic to be true for the rational mind.

The Hindu View of Time

Most of us are accustomed to living life according to linear beliefs and patterns of existence. We believe everything has a beginning, middle and an end. But Hinduism has little to do with the linear nature of history, the linear concept of time or the linear pattern of life.

Cyclical Time

The passage of ‘linear’ time has brought us where we are today. But Hinduism views the concept of time in a different way, and there is a cosmic perspective to it. Hindus believe the process of creation moves in cycles and that each cycle has four great epochs of time, namely Satya Yuga, Treta Yuga, Dwapar Yuga and Kali Yuga. And because the process of creation is cyclical and never ending, it “begins to end and ends to begin”.

The four ages symbolize the four phases of involution during which man gradually lost the awareness of his inner selves and subtle bodies. Hinduism believes that human beings have five kinds of bodies, called annamayakosa, pranamayakosa, manomayakosa vignanamayakosa and anandamayakosa, which represent the ‘gross body’, the ‘breath body’, the ‘psychic body’, the ‘intelligence body’ and the ‘bliss body’ respectively.

Another theory explains these epochs of time on the basis of the degree of loss of righteousness in the world. It says, during Satya Yuga only truth prevailed (Sanskrit Satya = truth), Treta lost ¼ truth, Dwapar lost ½ truth and Kali is left with only ¼ truth. Evil and dishonesty has replaced truth in the last three ages or yugs.

Time is God

According to the Hindu theory of creation, time (Sanskrit ‘kal’) is a manifestation of God. Creation begins when God makes his energies active and ends when he withdraws all his energies into a state of inactivity. God is timeless, for time is relative and ceases to exist in the Absolute. The past, the present and the future coexist in him simultaneously.

Kalachakra: The Cycle of Time

God creates the cycle of time, called Kalachakra, in order to create divisions and movements of life and sustain the worlds in periodic time frames. God also uses time to create the ‘illusions’ of life and death. It is time, which is accountable for old age, death and dying of his creations. When we overcome time, we become immortal. Death is not the end of the line, but a gateway to the next cycle, to birth. This is also true of the universe itself and akin to the cyclic patterns in the rhythms of nature.

Dasavatara: The 10 Avatars

Throughout these four yugas, Lord Vishnu is said to incarnate ten times in ten different avatars. This is known as ‘Dasavatara‘ (Sanskrit dasa = ten). During the Age of Truth, human beings were spiritually most advanced and had great psychic powers. In the Treta Yuga people still remained righteous and adhered to moral ways of life. Lord Rama of the fabled Ramayana lived in Treta Yuga. In the Dwapara Yuga, men had lost all knowledge of the intelligence and bliss bodies. Lord Krishna was born in this age. The present Kali Yuga is the most degenerated of the Hindu epochs.

The scriptures speak of the 10 Avatars of Vishnu – different incarnations that take the form of divine intervention provided by Vishnu during the various stages of human evolution. The “dasavatara” (ten avatars) is meant to re-establish dharma or righteousness and destroy tyranny and injustice on earth.

The ten Avatars are:

      1. Matsya (the fish)
      2. Koorma (the tortoise)
      3. Varaha (the boar)
      4. Narasimha (the human-lion)
      5. Vamana (the dwarf)
      6. Parasurama (the angry man, Rama with an axe)
      7. Lord Rama (the perfect man, king of Ayodha)
      8. Lord Krishna (the divine statesman)
      9. Balarama (elder brother of Krishna)
    10. Kalki (the mighty worrior)

The last Avatar is yet to appear, and in many versions of the mythology, the ninth incarnation is mentioned as Lord Buddha.

A Cosmological Necessity
The legend of the Avatar, like all myths, is prophetic, says Cosmologist and Astrologer Robert E Wilkinson. According to him: “It is not a mere allegory but an archetypal story describing the incarnations or emanations of living and conscious evolutionary forces. The appearance of the Avatars is also not a random event but a cosmological necessity. The periodic manifestation of the Avatars is determined by their inherent association with the ‘Time-Spirit.’ They take birth at particular points in the cosmic cycle which correspond to the earth’s passage through the zodiacal ages as described in the Rig Veda.”

Establishing Order on Earth
In his “Myth=Mithya: A Handbook of Hindu Mythology,” Dr Devdutt Pattanaik, one of India’s most popular mythologists, writes about the Avatars of Vishnu: “Every time dharma is threatened Vishnu mounts his eagle, the mighty Garuda, and comes to earth ready to do battle. The descents of Vishnu from Vaikuntha to earth are his avatars or incarnations. The form in each descent is different because the demands of the world each time are different. The different avatars thus reinforce the idea that rules and regulations that maintain order are not static by nature. They are forged when the demands of desire clash with the quest for order. As man’s understanding of the world changes, desires change and so do concepts of order. Rules have to therefore constantly adapt themselves. Social stability must not be compromised, yet new ideas must be respected. Vishnu’s descents are not just about reestablishing order. It is also about redefining them.”

Role of the Goddess
Dr Pattnaik adds: “Each avatar of Vishnu involves a crisis involving the Goddess. Vishnu takes the form of a turtle to help the Devas churn Lakshmi out, the form of a boar to rescue the earth that have been dragged under the sea, the form of Rama when Sita is abducted and the form of Krishna to help Draupadi. Thus the Goddess is the embodiment of nature and culture. She is the kingdom and Vishnu is the king. She is Bhoodevi and he is Shripati. Both validate each other, she by giving him powers of kingship and he by defending her.”

Living in the Kali Yuga!

We live in the Kali Yuga — in a world infested with impurities and vices. People possessing genial virtues are diminishing day by day. Floods and famine, war and crime, deceit and duplicity characterize this age. But, say the scriptures, final emancipation is possible only in this age.

The Signs of Kali Yuga!

Kali Yuga has two phases: In the first, humanshaving lost the knowledge of the two higher selveshad knowledge of the ‘breath body’ apart from the physical self. During the second phase even this knowledge has deserted mankind, leaving us only with the awareness of the gross physical body. This explains why we are now more preoccupied with our physical self than anything else.

Due to our preoccupation with our physical bodies and our lower selves, and because of our emphasis on the pursuit of gross materialism, this age has been termed the ‘Age of Darkness’an age when we have lost touch with our inner selves, an age of profound ignorance!

What the Scriptures Say

Both the two great epics – The Ramayana & Mahabharata – have spoken about the Kali Yuga. In the Tulasi Ramayana, we find Kakbhushundi foretelling: “In the Kali Yuga, the hot-bed of sin, men and women are all steeped in unrighteousness and act contrary to the Vedas… every virtue had been engulfed by the sins of Kali Yuga; all good books had disappeared; impostors had promulgated a number of creeds, which they had invented out of their own wit. The people had all fallen prey to delusion and all pious acts had been swallowed by greed.”

In the Mahabharata (Santi Parva) Yudhishthir says: “… The ordinances of the Vedas disappear gradually in every successive age… the duties in the Kali age are entirely of another kind. It seems, therefore, that duties have been laid down for the respective age according to the powers of human beings in the respective ages.” The sage Vyasa later on clarifies: “In the Kali Yuga, the duties of the respective order disappear and men become afflicted by inequity.”

What Happens Next?

It is predicted that at the end of the Kali Yuga, Lord Shivashall destroy the universe and all the physical body would undergo a great transformation. After such dissolution, Lord Brahma would recreate the universe and mankind will become the ‘Beings of Truth’ once again.

The Golden Age of 2012

In the “Brahma-Vaivarta Purana”, Lord Krishna tells Ganga Devi that a Golden Age will come in the Kali Yuga – one of the four stages of development that the world goes through as part of the cycle of eras, as described in Hindu scriptures. Lord Krishna predicted that this Golden Age will start 5,000 years after the beginning of the Kali Yuga, and will last for 10,000 years.

Mayan Calendar Matches Hindu Calendar
It is interesting that this prediction of the emergence of a new world is prophesied to appear about the same time that the Mayans predicted it to come! The Mayan calendar began with the Fifth Great Cycle in 3114 BC and will end on 21 December 2012 AD. The Hindu Kali Yuga calendar began on 18 February 3102 B.C. There is only a difference of 12 years between the Hindu’s beginning of the Kali Yuga and the Mayan’s beginning of the Fifth Great Cycle.

Golden Age Could Begin in 2012
The ancient Hindus mainly used lunar calendars but also used solar calendars. If an average lunar year equals 354.36 days, then this would be about 5270 lunar years from the time when the Kali Yuga started until 21 Dec 2012. This is the same year that the Mayans predict rebirth of our planet. It is also about 5113 solar years of 365.24 days per year, and is day number 1,867,817 into the Kali Yuga. By either solar or lunar years, we are over 5,000 years into the Kali Yuga and it is time for Lord Krishna’s prophecy to happen according to the ancient Hindu scriptures. Lord Krishna’s Golden Age could easily begin in 2012!

Mayan Prophecy Matches Hindu Prophecy
It is amazing that both calendars began at about the same time over 5,000 years ago and both calendars predict a totally new world and/or golden age after about 5,000 years into their calendars! We are definitely on to something with these Mayan and Hindu 2012 predictions. Historically, this is an amazing fact since these two ancient cultures did not have any contact.
