The Cornucopia Series #4: Tantalizing Clues on What's Ahead and a Rainbow of News (February 14, 2007)
http://www.earthrainbownetwork.com/Archives2007/Cornucopia4.htm



1) SUMMARY

As we come ever closer to the great shift of ages, when the vast majority of humanity will be joined as One in Love, more and more people are realizing that they are faced with clear-cut choices both in their personal lives and in the world at large. Is the violence seen in the world symptomatic of deeply seated imbalances in each one of us? Are the world problems, from global warming to rampant hunger and a growing cohort of other intractable difficulties, merely a reflection of man's disconnection from his Higher Self and from the Web of Life? It seems, as time itself accelerates and as the pace of life becomes unbearable, that either things massively change for the better and we head towards global ecstasy and heaven on Earth, or things continue to deteriorate up to a point when catastrophic upheavals could literally wipe out Life from the face of the Earth.

Yet, we intuitively sense, especially if we are well on our way towards complete spiritual awakening, that, somehow, we are headed in the right upward direction and that a bright future awaits us, albeit still shrouded in a mist of uncertainties. We also sense deep within us that, in order to get there, we need to make conscious choices in every single waking moment, choices that will ultimately determine our individual and collective fate in the near future and for aeons to come. As we learn to live in the NOW moment, and trust our inner guidance to make the right choices, we are co-creating the matrix of conscious awareness from which countless others will derive a similar guidance and progress in the same direction—even if, outwardly, most others still seem completely unaware of this upcoming new era and uninterested in discovering Who they truly are. As trail blazers we can play a vital role in ensuring a bright future for most everyone, and it is therefore essential we keep this responsibility in mind when we are tempted to follow a lesser path and not keep our spiritual sight trained onto the noble spiritual goals we seek to reach in this lifetime.

As we are joining in a globally synchronized communion of souls with countless other beings this Sunday and the following two Sundays, let us consciously rededicate ourselves to following the Path of Love in every circumstances, no matter how difficult this may sometimes appear to be, for in so doing we are enabling all our brothers and sisters to find within themselves a readily available openness to feel, offer and manifest Love in all their relations and activities. As we connect with the brightest, most divine part of our Selves, let us radiate towards all other souls the sense that We are Love... We are One... We are God... and in so doing we shall activate in every single soul the dazzling Remembrance of their True Nature, for the Highest Good of All.

"Our messages through clear spiritual channels long have emphasized that Earth is ascending regardless of what anyone there “does,” but what we devoutly hope is that at least most, if not all of you, will “see the light” and accompany her. As more souls are receptive to the light, the faster it will seem that you are approaching 2012. Mother, I don’t know how to explain this more clearly, so please just know that holding steadfast to the vision of your world in peace and harmony is in itself adding to the energy that is bringing this to you. (...) Know that we continuously are beaming light to you just as to those who falter and allow fear to enter their being and to those who are holding fast to dark intentions. If only you could realize the vastness of the light coming from countless sources in the universe, your hearts would be uplifted immeasurably to hasten the moment when darkness succumbs to the brilliance, and love permeates Earth."

— Matthew - Taken from http://www.matthewbooks.com/mm/anmviewer.asp?a=12&z=2


"The Mayan "birth date" of 2012 could herald the close of one way of existence and the beginning of another, symbolized by the prophesied return of the Mesoamerican deity Quetzalcoatl, the mysterious "Plumed Serpent" of ancient myth. In just the nick of time, the skeptical modern mind can reclaim the suppressed psychic, intuitive, and mystical dimensions of being, and institute a new planetary culture. But it is only - and by no means assuredly - possible if we confront the environmental catastrophe staring us in the face."

— Taken from 2012 The return of Quetzalcoatl

From: http://www.matthewbooks.com/mm/anmviewer.asp?a=8&z=2

S:  Matthew, does this additional light development mean that we won’t have to wait until 2012 to see the last remnants of fear and suffering on Earth?

MATTHEW: What so recently has transpired is glorious indeed, and we wholeheartedly welcome this increase in lighted souls that is enabling Earth to rise more quickly into higher vibrations. But Mother, your question puts this in your calendar “time” and that’s not applicable. The faster, or more intensely, the light infuses Earth, the more swiftly your “time” passes as the planet moves further into fourth density vibrations. So, just as in this moment your calendar week is passing in less than half the time that a calendar week did a dozen or so years past, the year 2012 will be coming to you much more rapidly than seven or eight of your calendar years. 

S:  Why is that year so important? Why can’t the Golden Age begin in 2005, for instance?

MATTHEW: I’m glad to see you smiling, dear soul!  Well, when you’re speaking hypothetically, why not start with 2011 in your mind and quickly slide down to 2005 for typing? Very well—the year 2012 has historic significance universally. It involves celestial orbiting cycles and their influences on your planet as well as life designs made in total clarity by highly evolved beings who planned Higher Universal-MAN with attributes of spirituality and intelligence that far exceeded today’s Earth population. Opportunities to return to higher densities have been offered in prior cycles and missed, and this time when the energetic alignment is again optimal, advanced civilizations are assisting so Earth’s desire to rise to her former vibratory level is assured.  What happens on Earth affects the universe, so it is of utmost significance to those advanced civilizations that the dark ages on your home planet be reconciled within the light and you knowledgeably take your rightful place among your universal family. 

But again, a date is not the issue—it is the incoming vibrations that are increasing the pace of Earth’s ascension into the fullness of fourth density that is of consummate interest and significance. If Earth were still struggling today as she was 50 years ago, even though your calendar would indicate the year 2004, the “time” of passage of the next eight years would seem an eternity in those lower frequencies. It would be somewhat like a child whose third birthday has just passed and she impatiently is waiting for her eleventh birthday to come because she has been promised a puppy then. Furthermore, the time of preparation for the Golden Age will become more and more light-filled and joyous for you! 

Beyond 2012 Catastrophe or Ecstasy
http://www.2012theodyssey.com/articles-beyond.html
In 1975, Dannion Brinkley was speaking on the telephone during a thunderstorm. A lightning bolt hit the phone line, sending thousands of volts of electricity through his head and body. His heart stopped and at the hospital, he was pronounced dead, and a death certificate was issued. He was then covered with a sheet and wheeled towards the morgue….then he woke up! He had been dead for 28 minutes, and this was the longest clinically documented near-death experience ever recorded at that time. He later told how he had gone down a tunnel into a bright light, went through a life-recall self-judgement process and was shown a series of future world events, up to 2014. Brinkley said that “between 2004 and 2014, more precisely between 2011 and 2012”, there would be “the return of an energy system that existed here a long time ago”, and that it would culminate in an “electromagnetic polar Earth shift” between 2012 and 2014. The whole process would present mankind with a spiritual opportunity to raise their consciousness. What Brinkley didn’t know, was that 2012 is the next “Creation Date” of the ancient Maya civilization. (...) So the “spiritual opportunity for mankind” spoken of by Danion Brinkley can be confirmed as a time very close to 2012, when something will trigger a mass Kundalini experience in mankind… but what could the trigger be? Alexey Dmitriev, a Russian geologist, has analysed the increasing changes in Earth’s weather and seismic phenomena, plus recent changes to the geomagnetic field. He has also taken into account solar changes, and changes to the weather and magnetic fields of all the other planets in the solar system. A ten-fold increase to the layer of deflected interstellar plasma on the heliosphere boundary indicates that the solar system is headed into an area of magnetised plasma that Dmitriev says is causing these changes. An increasing incidence of plasma balls in the atmosphere is a sign of the imminent “transformation of Earth” says Dmitriev, involving an interaction with processes beyond the three-dimensional world.Like Brinkley, other near-death-experience subjects have also foreseen Earth changes and consciousness changes associated with 2012, as have many who have undergone out-of-body experiences, lucid dreams, remote viewing, meditative trance states, and even alien abduction experiences.

The following is excerpted with the author's permission from the book The Divine Laws by Lou Bognon (lou@loubognon.com). More details at http://www.loubognon.com/book3.htm

On 2012

The era before you is another golden age when your soul's longing will continue to get still deeper and deeper for a higher and higher connection to its Creator. You are now home bound, on your way to that most wondrous reunion and you shall be soon welcome into the heart of Light, from where you departed aeons ago.

Imagine a great upward spiral and know that from its end point, which is your own divine presence, you are now reaching half point through that spiral and by the year 2012 you will all have completed enough cycles on the same spiral to finally understand this image we are giving you of your current place in your own personal spiral of light and evolution.

By 2012, most of humanity will have understood and integrated the inner knowledge that they are Love manifest, that all life forms are Love manifest, and this, Beloved, is another great revelation for your time.

The blessings of such a revelation will manifest and eventually translate into a quantum leap in the way you relate to each other and in your relationships to all of life's expressions. A lot of you already have this consciousness, but what will be most wonderful to watch is for this same consciousness to finally affect all and then become the new golden age standard for all of the earth's humanity. This is nearer than you think, indeed.

The next few years are crucial to this evolutionary leap. How you choose to make this evolutionary leap is the subject matter of the next chapter - free will or free choice - as you are indeed free to choose to do a leap in painful and chaotic ways or to embrace the Love that you are and do your leap with Love - within the law, the divine law of Love.

In this, your mother planet will also follow your choices. How you will use your divine gift of free will, will to a great extent determine how she chooses to use hers as well. If you choose chaos, she will give you some of it, and lots of it too, should a little not be enough to wake you up to make your choices with Love.

Watch, as even already as we speak, she is active in the same spots over and over again. Expect her to become relentless in the places where her children neither listen, nor learn.

Now, understand Beloved that all laws are called laws because of their inherent qualities to be heeded and obeyed, or broken and ignored; and in this, the Divine Law of Love is no different, even though our loving Father-Mother-God also gives us the use of free will. You remain free to either obey this or any other law, thus learning in one single leap of faith or, through what are often very painful experiences, even entire lifetimes.

Such has been the path for most of you, lifetime after lifetime, for you were not taught any other way. Now you are being taught differently, now you are being reminded that you alone have the power of your choices.

How much easier it is Beloved, to just live the law, and thus think, move, speak and act within Love. This is in essence what, we, at the Council of Love and Wisdom, have come to remind you of at this most sacred time.

In closing this chapter we would Love to give you a few final pointers to guide you closer to the divine law of Love.

You know you are Love when you experience joy at being alive and at doing all the things that bring true and lasting happiness to your heart and soul and those around you. For some of you that may be contemplating the stars, for others it may be reading and yet for others it may be gardening, painting, dancing, singing or the pursuit of any other creative endeavour.

Learn, once and for all, what it really means to be an eternal soul—eternal means forever and soul means spirit. So, forever your spirit lives. You have lived before and you will live forever. And it is not your human or scientific discoveries of a hypothetical elixir of eternal life that will grant you eternity. That is already your divine right—you are already eternal. All that changes is only your outer form.

Now with that comes a truly awesome responsibility and hopefully this book will guide you further in that understanding. For you see, Beloved, just as you would create, say a lovely corner in your garden, filled with beautiful flowers and special plants and objects, a place you would want to go to, to enjoy the beauty and the energy that you would have created, the Creator creates you and all things in order to experience Himself-Herself in all of His-Her creation.

So, in a sense, you could not only just imagine the Creator anywhere and everywhere—that is why He is said to be Omnipresent and Omnipotent—but He could be said to be equally the garden and the gardener, the rose and its perfume, the rain and its drops, you, yourself, as a body and a soul, reading these words with all you are feeling and being this very instant.

He is inspiring this book and feeling what His Creation feels through your own individual and collective feelings. He feels your joy as you integrate and discover these very words. That is what we mean about you being God's perfection manifest. He created you so that you could beam back to Him the very Light with which He has infused Life within your being.

Take a deep breath then...

Close your eyes and know that you are, this very instant, the lungs, the eyes, the heart and the body of Father-Mother-God Himself-Herself.

If only you could remember to feel this way more often.

There was much, Beloved, that was made complicated and mystified about the truth of God's Love for you. When we say that you need to un-learn many things you think you know about Love, we think specifically about those teachings that insist that you need to become worthy of God's Love.

Nobody becomes, you do not become worthy of Father/Mother God's Love because you already are Love. Always remember that our Father-Mother-God's Love is unconditional. Nothing you do, say or don't do or don't say will ever be able to change that.

Our Beloved Brother Jesus tried to teach you this during his earthly sojourn and what He said was that you needed to learn to Love yourselves and each other as Father-Mother-God Loves you. He explained that indeed all you needed was to learn to accept that Love.

The part of you that is Divine-mind understands this perfectly. The human-mind aspect does not, and there has resided the problem of humanity in your dimension: the problem of duality. You see yourself as your body-mind, or as a body that possesses a soul. But what you really are is an eternal soul visiting a temporary abode, which is all your human body really is.

About the Shift of the Ages

We've done this before. We have experienced radical shifts in the cycles of time and consciousness here on Earth. Many Indigenous traditions have identified the time in which we are living as a period of major shifts. Our ancestors foretold this time of awakening for humanity. They spoke of a transition in consciousness that would enable us to be co-creators of a golden period of peace. Why now? Why us? Why are we the ones who have to face ourselves?

Many different Worlds have existed in the past. Each had a different understanding of what is, and what is not. They saw reality through the eyes of their period and lived out their free will in the context of that era. They were here, and now they are not. Some say they are still here. What we do know is that world's have come to an end by unimaginable planetary catastrophes. Stories told by Indigenous elders reflect some of these large-scale transitions. These stories were passed down from generation to generation and honorably memorized for future consideration. Some regard these stories as fantasies or in some cases as the ravings of mad men. What do you think?

A growing number of people in our world are aware that we are living in a time when we will open our minds eye and see our current life situation for what it truly is. This is not a time for analysis paralysis or dissecting the obvious and forming new commissions to study the outdated. This is a time to visualize new alternatives and co-create the future of our dreams. It is a time to wake from our slumber and remember who we are, and why we are here. This is the great human transition that was predicted by our ancestors.

According to the Mayan Calendar, a 5,200-year cycle closes in the year 2012. This event is the death of the 4th period of the Sun, and the birth of the new 5th Sun. Civilizations of the past who were participating in the prior reality Shifts helped the Creator evolve the situation to where it is today. At some point the collective fell asleep at the wheel. But, at this moment there is a growing anticipation by our mainstream public that something big is on the horizon. Think about this because this is huge! We are focusing on an event that will give us liberation from a parasitic system, and a reason to awaken and regain the forgotten technologies and powers that were suppressed through time. This is the event prophesied by many of our ancestors in the various world religions. It's the necessary "flipping" in our reality that sets us truly free, and it's right on schedule, just as predicted. Do you feel this in your own life? Do you have anything brewing internally? It's something we are experiencing externally as well as internally.

We are at a point in evolution were the whole image is preparing itself to be viewed. It's a "relative realization" due to the fact that we are at the pinnacle of so many different and amazing situations. People are making miracles happen everyday, things that were physically impossible in prior years. We're testing our realities and know that we are getting close to making a big decision; what do we desire for our future? When the mainstream starts making it "cool" and "trendy" to care, it's obvious you are in the middle of a Shifting Age.

As the Earth grows smaller the effects of our footprint are unavoidable. We see the damage everyday and accept a path of destruction from some outside force. However, there is no outside force independent of our-selves. We are it, and it is we. Small shifting occurs in our personal realties on a daily basis that gift us new perspectives of beauty. We mirror these experiences to all of the other eyes and ears that the creator has created. We exist as a collective body, and this collective body experiences cosmic adjustments on grand scales. These cosmic Shifts gift us new rules of life engagement. The beauty contained in the Shift we are going through is that our technology and willingness to take action will create miracles. The fact that communication can be made to virtually every part of the world gives us the opportunity to unite the light and ignite. We are doing this now. We are healing the world!

The Shift of the Ages is an affirmation that focus is being redirected from the problems themselves to the active participation in the solution. The Shift of the Ages Film allows a coolness to care and create. It's a celebration of oneness, and the honoring of diversity. It's the recognition of the heroes of truth who have sacrificed their personal gratification to help expand consciousness through the unification of progressive intention. It's a dismissal of fears and a calling forth of conscious choice. It's energetic weaving and the spiritual networking of our peacemakers. The chessboard has been set and we've already begun moving the pieces. We are the Shift of the Ages. We are the ones we have been waiting for. With this transition from the 4th period of the sun to the 5th period of the sun we actively participate in the outcome. How we transition, when we transition, and where we transition to is ultimately up to us. This is the Shift of the ages!

The Shift of the Ages
http://www.shiftingages.com/synopsis.html
According to the ancient Mayan Calendar we are living in the last days of a great cosmic cycle known as the"Long Count". Traditionally this is labeled as the Death of the 4th period of the Sun and the Birth of the new 5th Sun. The Maya kept accurate and detailed records of Earth's past transitions, and the civilizations that experienced major adjustments in their collective realities. It's no coincidence that the majority of the indigenous traditions and world religions mark our phase of existence as one that harbors a radical adjustment in the perception of reality. This transition to a new era has become known as the "Shift of the Ages". At this time light-workers are unifying, forming alliances and underground networks to assist the mainstream with this great human transition. One emissary of light is Don Alejandro Cirilo Perez Oxlaj, a 13th Generation Quiche Mayan High Priest. To the indigenous world he is known as "Wandering Wolf". Don Alejandro, in behalf of the Mayan Council of Indigenous Elders in Guatemala, has commissioned a film to be made to reveal visions, concepts, and subject matter previously concealed from the masses. According to Mayan prophecy, we have entered into a period when it is safe to release this information to the public.The Ancient Ones left stories, glyphs and prophecies to be considered by each successive generation. "The Shift of the Ages" gives expression to the voice of the ancient ones who have known of this period of time for eons. "Wandering Wolf" and other indigenous elders are now sharing their message with the people of our planet. Hear their words, feel their hearts, and see their visions! Positive seeds are being sown for the future. The "Shift of the Ages" is a heart warming, soul inspiring, and mind blowing experience. Support the Shift!

SPRING EQUINOX MAYA NEW YEAR REPORT: One step further into the galactic plane

Feb/March 2007 ~ Aluna Joy

The Maya have a saying "Uk'ux kaj - Uk'ux Ulew". It means "from the Heart of the Heavens to the Heart of the Earth". This Maya saying is becoming more than merely a prayer from Mayan tradition, but an actual physical, cosmic event. We are about to bridge Heaven and Earth; not only from within us, but also physically in our solar system.

When astronomers view the galaxy from the side, and draw an imaginary line along the length of it, this is called the plane of the galaxy or the galactic plane. The line is used as a co-ordination system for astronomers. The galactic plane is the most densely populated part of our galaxy. Several sources say that our solar system crosses the galactic plane about every 65 million years or so. Some say that our next passing will be in 2012 . . . the Maya Calendar cosmic cycle, reboot date.

The Maya know that the Milky Way is the galactic plane. The Maya also understand that 2012 is an ending of an old age and the beginning of a new, enlightened age. They understood the universe is serpentine in nature. In other words, the universe undulates! Scientists understand that the Sun and the Earth wobbles up and down, going back and forth through the galactic plane. They call this the "galactic carousel" effect. Just as the serpent undulates… so does Earth and humanity!

The Maya understand this serpent energy acts as cosmic inoculation of transmuting energy causing a kundalini effect on our body, mind and spirit. Yep . . . this is what we are feeling these days. It has been a cosmic roller coaster ride. This is why we can have days where everything goes right and we feel great, to days which are very intense and challenging. This undulating serpent acts like a cosmic pacemaker which keeps life in a steady beat and keeps us moving forward with some time to reflect.

NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope, and its heat-seeking infrared vision, discovered a snake in the Galactic Plane! The snake-like object is actually a thick, sooty cloud large enough to swallow dozens of solar systems. Astronomers think that this serpent contains billions of stars in the process of forming. The Maya understand the creative power of the undulating serpent in the Milky Way just like the astrologer would know the powerful influences of the Sun and the Moon. This knowledge is why the snake has such a central focus in Maya cosmology.

Other experts suggest we cross over the galactic plane every 33 million years . . . which is the central vibration of the Maya Calendar. This means that in a 65 million year cycle, every 33 million years the Earth crosses the galactic plane. This back and forth wobble action reminds us of the back and forth path of our Sun across our Earth in one year. The Sun crosses the center point of our Earth (the equator) twice a year: once in March and the other in September.

What does the Earth crossing the galactic plane mean to us now, and how will it affect us?

Entrance to the galactic plane affects many things on Earth. It can shift and re-boot the electromagnetic fields. It can affect tides, volcanic activity, earthquake intensity, amplify comet activity, and intensify meteor showers.

So getting back to the Maya saying… Uk'ux kaj - Uk'ux Ulew, as above so below... The galactic plane is the most crowded place in the solar system and our lives will reflect this. We are entering a sea of new and transforming vibrations, and this can feel overwhelming. The space between life's events will blur. We might feel like we are in a pressure cooker . . . like a chunk of coal being compressed into a flawless diamond. We might feel fuzzy, distracted, crowded and overwhelmed, and some people might even experience anxiety. As we let go of who we were and become our new and improved authentic self, we will feel the intensities between joy and pain . . . and abundance and lack. History will fade into an unreal dream or illusion. The future will become a vast void of unlimited potential from which we will create the reflections of our hearts.

As we enter further into the galactic plane, our hearts and minds will unite in a profound way. We will feel a greater desire to serve others, no matter how challenging the circumstances or cost. This is the beginning of the end of self-serving actions and out of control materialism. We will find it less desirable to simply take from others without providing a mutually beneficial service. Our main focus and passion will not be about getting . . . it will be about giving . . . and in the giving we receive, and we ALL win. This point alone will really begin to shake up the world's systems. As we find ways to serve others, we will also discover that we will become abundant ourselves.

With each passing Equinox, we exponentially build transformative energy as our Earth enters even further into the galactic plane. This galactic passage unleashes more and more of the collective potential of the limitless universe. Truth will become harder to find from without. We will come to a place where the only truth will be that which is within our heart centers. We will find ourselves holding stead fast to this truth. We will not waiver or retreat. We will take action based on our hearts; not our bank accounts. Our minds will race with all the possibilities. We can already feel the pressure of this cosmic evolvement.

On March 21, 2007 EQUINOX,
We enter 5 MANIK - 8 TIJASH, Mayan years
A year that empowers the GREAT GIVER

The total lunar eclipse on March 3rd, and following partial solar eclipse on March 19th, will set the stage for a even more powerful transformation for the following Mayan New Year.

5 MANIK, for the Yucatec Maya, speaks to us about integrating and empowering the giver, supporter and healer. We will finally come to the long, overdue place where we are able to support and heal ourselves, as well as each other. Deeply buried issues will be cleared. This can be a joyful and anticipated event, or an extremely painful time if we have been running from our issues. MANIK transformative energy will activate the community, global and universal healer within us. We may be asked to help others in ways that we had not considered before. It is the year of the GREAT GIVER . . . and the GREAT HEALER.

The number 5 is the energy of taking action, and has power to integrate all aspects of our truth and wisdom into a more useable form. It is a year that is a turning point, a cosmic epiphany of sorts, where we will move toward our empowerment as a human race and planet.

8 TIJASH, for the Kiche Maya, is a huge mirror or knife that liberates us from any and all negative energies. TIJASH is gentle on the positive, but very drastic on the negative. It can clear away enemies of truth and greatly support those who live within cosmic law. It can cure diseases of the mind and spirit as it purifies and balances all energies. This year we will see the clearing out of things that are out of balance with truth and cosmic laws of nature, thus provoking huge societal controversies, shifts, and changes. We will pay for karmic debts for our miscreations, but also be greatly rewarded for acts based from the heart. It can be joyful or sad depending on our beliefs, programs and actions. TIJASH can be the power within us that opens us to greater spiritual mysteries and open the gates to other dimensions.

The number 8 represents the completion of intentions in the material world. It is the end of the struggle to work within cosmic laws. Those who have felt the burden and sacrifice of working for Spirit, without being fairly rewarded, could see a huge turnaround this year. Abundance and success can be within reach of anyone who works from the heart and holds strong to the positives. Remember . . . what you put your attention on GROWS.

All in all, this year is the beginning of the end of all things that are out of balance. It is the beginning of long overdue support of all things that will bring about the healing of humanity. It is a year where we feel fulfilled and inspired by giving from the heart. If we are ready to let go of the past, it will be a year filled with clarity, forward movement and great joy.

The Ica Stones Association and Museum
http://www.labyrinthina.com/icastonemuseum.htm
The Ica Stones Associaton is a non-for-profit group of dedicated individuals who share a common desire to safeguard the Ica Stone Library as a treasure for humanity. The immense collection of ancient carved Ica Stones called “gliptoliths” comprise a sophisticated library left behind by an ancient lost civilization including images of medical transplants and blood transfusions, men with dinosaurs, and advanced technology such as telescopes and surgical equipment. The library is organized by subject matter including the races of man, ancient animals, lost continents, and the knowledge of a global catastrophe. The late Dr. Javier Cabrera spent over thirty years of his life endeavoring to decode the mystery of the stones. Early Spanish chronicles reported similar stones found in ancient pre-conquest tombs; Cabrera's collection numbers upward of 11,000 stones with more than 15,000 known to exist.

Cosmic Paradigm

We are at the pivotal juncture in human history. The shift to a new reality will be more encompassing than anything that has ever happened before to Earth-humans, and, most likely, more dramatic than imaginable.
Where we go from here is largely determined by you and the other people of this planet. We can continue in our mode of violence and self-destruction, or we can choose to embrace a higher way to live.

Contact with extraplanetary and intraplanetary beings is but the tip of the new reality iceberg. Almost every facet of our current existence is a lie, a lie perpetuated by those who enslave us.

Each of us should take careful note, and consider whether they wish to act in accordance with the Cosmic Paradigm:

1. There is much more than the physical reality we normally experience. We are here, on this planet, at this moment in time, by our own choice. We are here to actively participate in the transition of humanity.

2. The universe is teeming with life. There is one Creator and there are trillions of non-human life forms, some similar to us. Off-planet beings have been here for many thousands of years, with mixed agendas.

3. We are being invited to become members of the cosmic family. To qualify, we must reverse this planet from its current devolving condition, and we must do it very soon.

4. We, the humans of this planet, are the only ones to make this happen. Our current leaders will not do it for us. Extraterrestrials will not do it for us. We are the ones who must act -- now.

5. We are more individually powerful than we have been taught. Collectively we have the power to create a veritable paradise.

Extraterrestrial contact is but the starting point to an understanding of the facets of this pivotal juncture in human history. If you would go beyond the phenomenon, then examine the Spectrum of Reality, the messages from extraterrestrials, and the Implications of extraterrestrial contact -- all presented at this site.

The real story is WHY extraterrestrials are here, WHAT they are communicating to us, and WHAT it means in terms of who we are and the world on which we live.
