THE 14th Annual SOLAR WAVE 2008 ~ Phase Two

 
     The Living Gaia Prayer Wheel Activation!
     Equinox ~ September 22nd, 2008 ~ 1 to 3 PM your local time all across the Earth.
     This is a Joyful Invitation to the Awakening Masses of Gaia to come together in ONE UNIFIED HEART to Activate our Planet as a LIVING GAIA PRAYER WHEEL!  We Invite all to join together with like-minded, heart-centered souls to create an Unstoppable Tidal Solar Wave of Light and Positive Mass Awareness, to harmonize all discordant energy on Gaia, and to initiate a spontaneous Awakening of Humanity! 
     With the Power and Light of the Creator that is within each of us, we can usher in the age of PEACE, HARMONY, LOVE, COMPASSION and IMPECCABILITY, that has been prophesied by many ancient traditions.
     This will all occur during the powerful window of unlimited opportunity at Equinox, and is combined with the multiplying potential of 13:30 LOCAL SIDEREAL TIME, and the grace-filled rotation of the Earth as a living Prayer Wheel.
     “Again and again some people in the crowd wake up.  They have no ground in the crowd … they emerge according to much broader laws … and carry strange customs with them … and demand room for bold gestures.  The future speaks ruthlessly through them.”  ~  Rilke
     What is the catch you ask?  Does it sound to good to be true?  The fact is … that there is no catch.  This opportunity is free, green and supports all living things!
     There is a powerful time each day on the planetary grid where our sixth sense abilities are 400% times more effective.  When we use this knowledge and join together at this powerful time, our efforts will be multiplied within the harmonizing effects of Equinox.  We can heal the [our] Earth and Awaken Humanity!
     Have you ever felt like you were here on the Earth for a Special Purpose?  Do you feel that you are potentially … THE VERY ONE … who could help tip the balance of our dimension back into the LIGHT?  You are RIGHT!  You are the ONE! … but … do you want proof?  You will not have proof unless you are willing to go out on a limb, be bold, and believe in the light that you know we are.  Are you ready to prove that you are that powerful, and that we can heal the Earth and Awaken humanity?  Keep reading ~ The Ancient one and the Earth have a plan.
     Ancient traditions understand that the EQUINOX is a powerful time to initiate changes in our material world and shift into a new reality.  On Equinox, the Earth and the Sun are in perfect balance and harmony, as the sun is centered between the Northern and Southern hemispheres, and centered between Heaven and Earth.  This creates a sacred cross of balancing energy that naturally harmonizes the planet and humanity.  For 24 hours, the Earth heals itself in this balancing energy of a Solar Wave.
     The Tibetans understand the power of spinning the Prayer Wheel to send healing energy across the planet.  Could it be that the Prayer wheel is a representation of the spinning Earth?  Native American cultures know that the medicine wheel is a reflection of the Earth.  The medicine wheel is used for ceremony to heal and bring balance back to the Earth.  So why not use the Earth herself?

 For the last 14 years, thousands upon thousands of light workers, peace-keepers, shamans, healers, gods and goddesses, angels, and saints, from around the globe have joined together to work with powerful Equinox energy in a 24-hour Solar Wave of Light and creative potential.  But this event is nothing new.  Ancient ones knew about this powerful time, and have used it to balance and harmonize discordant energy for eons.  The fact that the masses are now becoming aware of this time of great potential is a huge sign that we are, in fact, on the brink of planetary awakening.
     This year a group of ancient ones, called the Star Elders, say that we are ready to evolve this year’s Solar Wave to a Stellar Wave!  This year the Star Elders call us to work with the Equinox, but to also add a hugely multiplying potential, a specific local sidereal time (LST a.k.a. Star Time), to synchronize our global efforts to reclaim paradise.  Are you in?

Importance of YOUR Actions

Connecting the Grid, the Importance of your actions

Connecting the Grid, the Importance of your actions

Where there is Love, there is Willingness to Change.

 

Love the Earth as yourself: Love every country, town, humans, animals, plants and the ground as you love yourself. If you cannot feel love, imagine that you feel it, embracing it all, and it will slowly come to you. This act will enhance your love for yourself and the Earth, and change you both, as you and the Earth are One. Earth is part of your light body and your physical body. 

You have energetic circuitries called meridians and layers in and outside your body called the aura, and also does the Earth have layers of interconnected energetic grids inside and around it. You have a flow of energy running through your body, entering your crown running to the bottom of your spine and your feet and out making a closed circle by going into the crown again, this making a shape like a doughnut. You have also a similar circuitry running the other way from your feet and bottom to your crown. This is called a Tube Torus. The Earth poles are similar to the entering points in our body; Life Force energy is streaming from and to the Source, in and out from the entering points. The grids inside and
around the Earth are similar to, the same as your energetic circuitries.

Earth Healer, Light Worker

As you connect with the grids by intending, feeling and visualizing a light connection from your heart to the light layers, and send your love and light to them, you heal Earth and yourself. If you have unserving emotions and thoughts against yourself, other beings or countries, you are damaging both yourself and the Earth. Everything is a part of you. Every being is a cell in your body. Every country is a greater part of you. So if you feel pity, shame, hatred, fear or do not care for a country or a town and the beings in it, you are sending the same destructive emotions towards great parts of yourself.

the human electromagnetic antennae.jpgAs you connect with your unserving thought forms and emotions and heal them with acceptance, forgiveness and love, you also heal the global circuitries of the same thoughts and emotions, since all is energy, running in different frequencies. Frequencies are in this case a combination of energy vibrations, speed, sound and light.

Unserving emotions such as hatred are of a low vibrating, dark and slow frequency, emotions of unconditional love and gratitude are of the highest, fastest vibrating frequencies, radiating clear light. There are grids created of fear, hatred, jealousy, all unserving emotions. And grids blue_planet.jpgcreated of Love. The purpose for light workers is to transform all grids into Love Grids, containing different frequencies, aspects of Love. This you do by transforming yourself into containing only that of Love, by releasing all unserving thought forms and emotions. Every time you have released an issue containing unserving thought forms and emotions, you connect with the grids in and around the Earth, intending to connect with the grids of the collective unconscious, unserving emotions, and you will heal this grid with your own releasing process. When going through the process of accepting, forgiving and loving yourself, you have the key to send this out in the grid, you send healing to everyone having the same issues and emotions. Intend and imagine Perfection, affecting all beings on Earth, and Earth herself.

 

You are One. And when you are aware of this Oneness, imagining and being aware that you and the Earth are One, with the same heart beating, you become even more One. The energetic connections are strengthened. When you focus on these connections to the Source, the Grids and Mother Earth, your thin threads of light are becoming thick ropes, then strong rays of light. Every thing you now do, think and feel, will affect the Grids. When you hate, you send Hate to the Grids. When you Love, you send Love to the Grids. You send it to every being on the Earth, because All are connected to the Grids, they can not live without them. That lightbody6 alex g.jpgimportant is your Doing and Being.

 

Maybe you think: “If I don’t consciously connect with the Grids, my actions will not affect it”. You are wrong. You are always connected, and whatever you do affects it, consciously or not.

Do you want the world to be better? Consciously connect with the grids and Be and Do better. Transform yourself. Work with yourself, releasing all unserving thought forms and emotions. Love yourself at all times, in all states of Being. Forgive yourself and be patient with yourself. Ask the Divine Beings to help with your Transformation into Unconditional Love. Love without judgement of any kind.

 

In co-creation, Metatron and Trine.

A Different Perspective…

 This quote speaks many truths within my being, so I thought I would share it with you today.

 I often like to imagine how the world would be if we didn’t tear into our mother earth as if she was a valuable resource, but rather sit back and allow her to provide like she has for thousands of years. Imagine not having to wake up and go to work.

Imagine instead being able to go for a walk and collect the freshest of foods which grow in abundance all around us. Leisurely walks where we take in the beautiful scenery around us and let our senses be renewed. Breathe in the pure air, and watch the trees sway to the rhythm of the wind. The doe and her young nibble on fields of clover unafraid of your presence, because too often you have crossed paths. You share the earth, as it was ment to be shared and all of life prospers, in both peace and well-being. What a vision.

This vision is a true way of life, in alignment with spirit. This vision was lived upon the very land you read this less then a hundred and fifty years ago.

You ask me to plow the ground. Shall I take a knife and tear my mother’s
bosom? Then when I die she will not take me to her bosom to rest. You ask
me to dig for stones! Shall I dig under her skin for bones? Then when I die
I cannot enter her body to be born again. You ask me to cut grass and
make hay and sell it and be rich like white men, but how dare I cut my
mother’s hair. I want my people to stay with me here. All the dead men
will come to life again. Their spirits will come to their bodies again. We
must wait here in the homes of our fathers and be ready to meet them
in the bosom of our mother.

PAIUTE SPIRITUAL LEADER, C. 1856-1932
