THE DESCENT OF THE NEW JERUSALEM - PART I
(Editor’s Note: This is the first in a series of articles on the New Jerusalem or new etheric body or grid of the Earth. In this article, we will examine the structure and effects of the New Jerusalem from the perpsective of scientists, geomancers, modern-day prophets and the ascended masters. We will also consider certain signs which indicate that the New Jerusalem is now being lowered into manifestation. In Part II, we will examine in detail the sacred geometric form of the new grid and how it connects to sacred sites on the Earth as well as etheric retreats and cities of light. I also plan to have completed by next spring a Circle of Light Ritual for the Descent of the New Jerusalem)
A NEW SONG AND A NEW EARTH
"And I looked and. lo, a Lamb stood on Mount Zion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads. And I heard a voice from heaven, like the voice of many waters, and like the voice of a great thunder; and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps. And they sang as it were, a new song..." Rev. 14:1-3.
Hopi elders say that the Earth Mother will soon "sing a new song" or shift into a higher vibration. When this happens the Earth’s grid will morph into a more complex sacred geometric structure and all of life that is part of the grid, including you and I, will be transformed. Scientists have confirmed through examination of the geologic record that over the billions of years of Earth’s evolution it has changed from first a tetrahedral crystalline structure to a cube and octahedron configuration to the present combination of icosahedron and dodecahedron (Figure 2).
In Scallion’s grid, the cells vary in size inversely with population density, the points of each pentacle are connected to form the decagon shape, and the six-pointed subcells at the points of the pentacles are shown. In the next issue of Mandala of Light I will show the true grid structure superimposed over a map of the earth with ley lines connecting energy vortices at sacred sites.
Jochmann quotes from John to support his hypothesis of a double penta dodecahedron. He writes, "John ... described the coming New Jerusalem as... being ‘as long as it is wide as it is high,’ or geometric in shape. He described it as having "crowns’ or node points, and indicated that its structure would be based on ‘a golden measure’ or the golden mean proportion of 1 to 1.617. Significantly, the only geometric figure that is composed entirely of golden mean proportions is a five-pointed star or pentacle... The ‘twelve gemstones’ and ‘twelve gates’ of the New Jerusalem would be the twelve double pentacles faces of the Penta Dodeca crystal form." In Scallion’s vision they are the twelve decagons.
Both Scallion and Jochmann state that the new Earth grid will cause a change in the consciousness of mankind. Jochmann writes, "Because the bioelectric field of the human brain is intricately related to the geomagnetic field of the Earth, any energy shifts in the planet could cause corresponding transformations in the consciousness of humanity as a whole. Is the present spiritual awakening occurring among humankind around the world tied into the transition from one planetary crystal energy form to another? Are prophesied "earth changes" not soemthing to be feared, but are simply signposts for both personal and planetary changes now happening, linked with the Earth’s crystalline metamorphosis? Will the apostle John’s vision of a coming world of universal peace and tranquility be our eventual Gift once the earth’s crystal transformations are complete? These are questions only the future will answer."
Scallion is more certain in his conviction of a transformation of consciousness. He writes, "This grid pattern... is what creates the blueprint, I believe, for DNA... Therefore, we will have new species of animals emerging, and a new species of people. This new human being will attain - if we were to judge him or her from the point of view of intelligence, telepathic abilities, healing abilities, and spiritual knowing - a kind of quantum jump in evolution from where we are now.... People today who are in harmony - well-balanced in most repects - are already tapped-in to the new grid structure."
THE GIFT OF THE SOLAR LOGOI
"And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband... Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal." Rev. 21: 2,11
Richard Leviton in "Ley Lines and the meaning of Adam," wrote that "the Earth grid...is the Round Table as a planetary hologram of the energy/consciousness body of the Solar Logos. It is the receiving/transmitting device expressed at the borderline between third and fourth dimensions."(118) Theosophist Brett J Mitchell, in "The Sun is Alive," wrote that "the Solar Logos is the source of our existence, both physically and spiritually. Its radiance vitalizes our physical bodies and vitalizes our spiritual growth."(119)
A Logos is a cosmic being that embodies and transmits the Word or vibration of God at various levels of creation from Vishnu in the Great Central Sun to Gautama Buddha in the Earth. The Solar Logos consists of the sun and the Seven Solar Logoi of the seven major planets. They represent what Leviton calls the "Sun’s Royal Court, which itself is but a component of the far larger vibrational body of the Galactic Logos." If our planet and the other planets of the solar system were to receive a step up in vibration from the Great Central Sun through the galactic core, it would do so through the step-down transformer of the Solar Logoi. And such a dispensation would be administered through the Planetary Logos or Lord of the World, Gautama Buddha. Leviton wrote that "the Planetary Logos... presides over Earth’s inner life as the Soul, mediating through the brow chakra the "Word of God" [stepped-up vibration] to the physical Being of Gaia... The soul of Gaia is an interdimensional realm... centered in the Kun Lun Mountains and Gobi/Lob Nor Deserts of Mongolia/Northern China [Shamballa]."
On December 31st, 1984, the previous Planetary Logos, Sanat Kumara, announced on January 1st, 1985 that "The etheric matrix of the Central Sun is set as cosmic beings place an etheric matrix over the entire planet. This etheric sheath contains the record and blueprint of the original divine plan, its fulfillment, and added thereto all victories of all saints and early root races unto the present hour.... Thus, the Solar Logoi bequeath to the planet a new swaddling garment, a matrix very nigh the heart of God, that all might see and know in their finer bodies, as their own etheric body is purified, what is that acceptable destiny for this freedom star.... This etheric sphere, beloved, makes vibrant and does intensify the etheric retreats and cities of Light. It does also activate and make light the chakras, as each one’s karma does allow. The opportunity, then, beloved, to renew the golden age has never been greater than in this moment."(44)
Certain key "etheric retreats and cities of light" are the 12 gates of the New Jerusalem. These gates are the portals of birth through which the 144,000 saints from the 12 tribes of Israel will reembody on earth. In his New Year, 1985 address, the Planetary Logos, Gautama Buddha, said, in describing the dispensation of the Solar Logoi as the thoughtform for 1985, "in the left-hand upper corner, there is the image of the City Foursquare, the New Jerusalem that descends out of heaven as the etheric matrix, lowered for the community of the Holy Spirit, forged and won by the called out ones. Beneath that symbol is the outline of the mountains of the Inner Retreat...The descending city is the pattern and blueprint whereby the etheric octave becomes physical, proven once and then proven again and again as a formula of life, varying in each continent and place that shall spring up as the whole world receives the education of the heart."(45)
On June 24th, 1990, John the Beloved said, " the coming Light and the coming resolution and the coming alchemy beyond the year 2000 is already a coil within your bodies. And so while you walk the earth during this time of trouble, trouble such as has not been seen for many tens of thousands of years, you are caught up in the Holy Spirit and in the New Jerusalem, which is the Retreat of the Divine Mother,that City Foursquare in the etheric octave that has its focus over this place [the Inner Retreat]."(120)
Thus, he energy vortex of Inner Retreat and surrounding mountains together with the Retreat of the Divine Mother above them form the main gate of the New Jerusalem. In 1986, I visited the home of a couple in Bozeman who had a young child who was able to see this etheric retreat from Bozeman. This child is probably one of the 12,000 saints who are embodying in this area, what Gordon Michael Scallion refers to as the "Blue Ray children," forerunners of the seventh root race. In the spring, 2000 issue of Mandala of Light, I will identify the other 11 key vortices and etheric retreats of the new grid.
On March 10th, 1985 Archangel Michael announced, " the descent of the etheric matrix of the New Jerusalem at this point [Los Angeles] and in various points on the planet. We have spoken before of the descent of this blueprint and this manifestation, but the descent must come through the Electronic Presence of the embodied chelas, through the magnet of their hearts, of their own I AM Presence, through their espousal of the will of God and that perfect faith that has trust that God will perform all miracles and save to the uttermost this community of Light to perform its perfect work.
Understand that we may announce many times the descending of the Holy City and you must understand what it is: It is the etheric counterpart of that which is the divine plan for each and every city and center of Light on earth. And ultimately, superimposed upon that which is the divine plan, specific and unique for the city, there is that of the New Jerusalem itself, which is the city of Christ and his saints and which contains the divine and true etheric matrix to which the lost tribes and the Christed ones shall return.
Let us see both manifest in every area—the local divine plan as the etheric city descending (that peculiar to that area) and that of the New Jerusalem itself. Let all realize that if there is to be any Justice on earth in any field of endeavor, it is this matrix that must be invoked and lowered into manifestation."(121)
In Part II of this article, I will present a Circle of Light Ritual for the Descent of the New Jerusalem. It will contain blanks so that it can be tailored for each city and nation. As with the Circle of Light for the Protection of Earth, I would like to see this one put on tape.
There are signs that this New Jerusalem is being lowered into manifestation now. This is probably a result of the increasing light from the Great Central Sun as well as the decrees and calls of chelas of the ascended masters.
THE SIGNS OF THE NEW JERUSALEM
The increased light from the Great Central Sun that is responsible for the step up in vibration of the earth grid should be noticed in astrophysical and geophysical events and recently there have been several. On August 27, 1998 scientists recorded a five-minute burst of energy that had the energy equivalent of 300 years of radiation from our sun. The source of this energy was the star, SGR1900+14, near the center of the galaxy.(122)
In 1961, astronomer Robert Stanley concluded a study which proved that the number of photon particles striking the Earth has increased, and proposed that the Earth is passing through a belt of "dense light."(123) In 1992, scientists at Los Alamos National Labs confirmed that the solar system is slowly passing through "a mysterious new frequency beam that is emanating from the center of the Milky Way Galaxy."(124) The earth currently is in the photon belt for half the year from December 15, 1999 till summer solstice, 2000. It will be in the photon belt full-time by the year 2012 AD, which matches the date for the beginning of a new cycle in Hopi and Mayan prophecies. It is also the date that the geomagnetic field strength, discussed below, is projected to drop to zero.
The sun entered the photon belt in the summer of 1998. As a result, the intensity and frequency of solar flares has increased to dangerous levels. Two comets crashed into the sun around that time. Usually such an event would not create a disturbance, but this time, 30 to 35 solar flares erupted. Scientists in the late 80's were concerned about the solar proton flux rising to 2500 PUI. Recently, it was measured at 42,000 PUI! Magnetic storms have increased from about 30-40 per year to over 300 in one month!(125)
The new grid would have more ley lines and energy vortices. Since some ley lines follow fault lines and mountain chains and some energy vortices are located at volcanoes and magma deposits, another sign that the new grid is becoming physical would be an increase in geophysical disturbances. The earth changes (earthquakes, vulcanism and unusual weather) during 1999 have been unprecedented in frequency and intensity. See Earth Changes 1999 in the fall issue of Mandala of Light.
In his description of the thoughtform for 1985, which is the image of the New Jerusalem, Gautama Buddha said that "the configuration of land masses and seas are not exactly as they are today, signifying the true etheric matrix of that which is to be in the Golden Age."(45) What would have the greatest effect on the configuration of land masses and seas? A rise in sea level, of course. Scientists have confirmed that the South Pole is melting at an accelerated rate. In 1997, an 800 square mile chunk of ice broke off from Antarctica. In 1998, the Larson ice sheet which is about the size of Texas and over a miles deep started to break off. If this breaks off and melts, it will raise the level of the world’s oceans by 20 feet, flooding most of the world's coastal cities.(126)
Gautama Buddha also described "the image of planet earth, restored, karma balanced, axis straightened." In issue 21 of Atlantis Rising, David A. Wilson, in a letter to the editor, stated that the Earth is supposed to be tilted (declined) at 23o 25' out of the orbital plane. However, according to his measurements on June 16th, 1999, the Earth is now tilted at 19o 05'. He wrote, "We are more upright than before, creating new temperature and weather patterns." As I write this, it is November 30th and the temperature is 60, 20 degrees above the average for this day. Also the ground is bare as oppose to the average accumulated snowpack of one and a half inches for this elevation and date. Wilson goes on to write "We are more upright than ever before, creating new temperature and weather patterns. Have you noticed? The night star pattern will also be shifted in perspective if you have a way of measuring it. We have a new "north pole" located in the northern stars. You should verify this information. To do so, you need to establish a true North-South line. A compass reading will be off some according to your longitude and the magnetic pole location. Once your N-S line is established, scribe it into your driveway or sidewalk. Drive a metal rod into the ground at the south end, so a determined length is above ground. When the rod's shadow is on the N-S line, it is solar noon. Mark the shadow length. You have the rod length and the shadow length, and by trigonometry can find the sun's angle for the day of measurement: Tan angle = opposite/adjacent. A trig book will give the angle in degrees and minutes. Feed that information into this formula: Declination = Sun angle - 90o + Latitude. The declination of the day is available from any Farmers Almanac>"(46) Compare this published declination with your results to see how much the earth's axis has straightened.
The geomagnetic field of the earth, which forms the electromagnetic part of the earth grid, is undergoing huge changes. It’s strength is decreasing geometrically and it is fluctuating. 2000 years ago the field measured about 4 gauss. It now measures only 0.4 gauss.(127) It’s lines of force are shifting so that birds, whales and dolphin that use them to migrate are being found in places that don’t normally see them, the marine mammals are ending up on beaches, and homing pidgeons are getting lost. The magnetic field has become so erratic that airlines have to periodically change compass directions on aeronautical charts and airports have to periodically repaint directions on runways. Geomancers know that a change in the earth grid is possible locally only during a total solar eclipse when the local magnetic field strength temporarily drops to zero. If the new grid were to be established, the entire magnetic field would have to drop to zero. Gregg Braden calculates that this will happen around 2012.
Concurrently with the drop in the magnetic field strength there has been an increase in Earth’s background heartbeat or Schumann resonance frequency (the number of pulses per second of the Earth’s electromagnetic field). It had been measured consistently at around 7.8 hertz since 1954, but around 1986, shortly after the dispensation of the new etheric body of Earth was announced, it began to increase. In 1994 it was measured at 8.6 and climbing. In 1997, Gregg Braden reported it to be 11.2, and in 1998, Russian scientists declared it to be stabilizing at 13, which is a natural harmonic of 8, based on the Fibonacci series.(128) According to hypnotherapist, Catherine Bennett, 13 is the frequency of compassion or unconditional love(129) which Gregg Braden teaches is what we need to pass through this transition period with grace.
Gregg Braden also teaches that the combined effect of the drop in magnetic field strength and increase in Schumann resonance frequency will be a spiritual initiation for the entire planet. These electromagnetic conditions are identical to those found in "tuned resonant cavities" such as the Great Pyramid of Giza which were used as initiation chambers to induce altered states of consciousness in initiates.(130) Sanat Kumara, in describing the effects of the new etheric body of the Earth bestowed by the Solar Logoi said, "I must also tell you, beloved, that the pressure of so much Light pressing in upon a darkness untransmuted, unsurrendered in many lifewaves, as you well know, can also cause explosive types of situations as people feel they cannot escape their own substance which they do not surrender, and they feel they cannot escape the Light. Thus, for those who do not desire the Light, this sphere will be one of uncomfortability, one to which they are not accustomed. In other words, the Light is too bright for those who are of the Darkness. Thus, expect chemicalization and saturate the earth with violet flame and protection as you have been doing. To continue these calls will provide heavenly beings with the wherewithal to enable earth to make this transition with the least burden of upheaval."(44)
The "explosive types of situations" Sanat Kumara warned about can be seen almost every day in the news. See Periodic Cataclysm and End Times Psychosis in the summer issue of Mandala of Light. These are the failings of those who cannot take the increased Light of this planetary initiation. But those who pass the initiation will find that their DNA has been changed, their auras have been purified and, as a result, their thoughts have more power. Steve Kalinowski, in an address to the Institute of Noetic Sciences said that "this is being noticed in the increased reports of such things as effectual prayer, spontaneous remissions and spiritual-energy healings, and in the increased general use of ‘intentional manifestation’ or ‘co-creation’ skills as advocated by proponents of ‘abundance affirmation,’ ‘guided visualizations,’ etc., and also in the synchronistic happenings that are occurring more and more frequently to many people."(131) Even though this is occurring naturally, it would be good that people take up a spiritual discipline and get in touch with their higher selves so as not to misuse their new powers and make karma. See In Synch with the Inner Guru and The Key to Survival in this issue.
Wayne Moody, in the December 18th issue of the Millennium Sun Electric Newsletter, wrote, "This is what Earth is in the process of doing: it wants a transformational experience. How quickly and easily it comes is at least partially up to us, individually and collectively. The vibrations will gradually increase, creating much discomfort where there is the most resistance and many smooth transformations where there is least resistance. At some point, the irresistable force will transform the otherwise immoveable object and, like water subjected to heat, an almost immediate transformation will occur. Perhaps this is what the Mayans and other cultures are trying to tell us in their various calendars that show the end of time as we know it to occur within the next decade or so: it's not the end of the world (only as we currently know it), but a shift in consciousness. This change is inevitable; it's only a matter of time, and the degree to which we accept or resist will determine how much stress is experienced in the process."(132)
