By and large, humanity holds a remarkably provincial view of its own existence. Most of us consider ourselves members of a relatively unique species living on a unique little planet and expect, when we die, to receive our just desserts at the hand of a loving albeit judgmental god. We hardly ever consider ourselves part of a larger mosaic – a vast plan of cosmic evolution that has a far grander purpose.
Should we step back to consider a broader view, we’d see that there have been several moments in our species’ development that were marked by sudden and unexpected turns – the advent of pair bonding, the beginning of language, and the emergence of abstract thought being a few prime examples. Although some scientists have attributed these transitions to the gradual processes of natural selection, others, such as William H. Calvin, author of A Brain for All Seasons: Human Evolution and Abrupt Climate Change,1 have argued that the abruptness with which these new behaviors appeared suggests that they were more likely linked with sudden planetary shifts, such as a worldwide cooling trend. Stanley Kubrick and Arthur C. Clarke depicted the sudden nature of these shifts in human consciousness metaphorically as the interventions of a colossal rectangular monolith in their 1968 groundbreaking film 2001: A Space Odyssey.
It seems that we are, as it were, on the verge of encountering another of these monolithic jump-time markers. The Earth, together with its inhabitants, is in the throes of the greatest shift it has yet experienced. According to researchers Patrick Geryl and Gino Ratinckx, coauthors of The Orion Prophesy,2 the occurrence and timing of this event were known in the days of Atlantis (which they claim is currently buried beneath the South Pole). It was also predicted by the Egyptians, the Mayans, the Hopi, and other indigenous peoples. Wouldn’t it be illuminating to know what these people saw?
If we hopped a ride on a spaceship and traveled to some point in our star system where we could turn around and take an astronomic snapshot of home, we would see that the Earth is one of nine planets (eight if you discount Pluto, ten if you include Chiron) in a solar system situated on a far-flung arm of a galaxy – the Milky Way – that contains somewhere between 200 and 400 billion stars. And if we put that freeze-frame image into fast forward, we’d see that the entire galaxy is engaged in a vast circular dance. Just as the moon circles the Earth and all the planets circle the Sun, so does our Sun and its planets orbit the central sun of our galaxy on a radius 26,000 light-years in length – that’s 152,770,186,335,403,700 miles. According to recent measurements, it takes our solar system about 226,000,000 years to complete a single rotation, traveling at 486,000 miles per hour – or 135 miles per second.3 To put that in perspective, a jet plane traveling at that speed would cover the 8,054 miles between New York and Hong Kong in less than a minute.
From our cosmic vantage point we would also see that space is not an empty vacuum, nor is it homogeneous. It is full of cosmic rays of all manner and description – a swirling soup of gamma, radio, electromagnetic, and gravitational waves along with a slew of particles such as protons, alpha particles, electrons, neutrinos, and a host of others yet to be named that burst, radiate, and pulsate throughout the universe. While some of these phenomena move out in all directions, like the light of a light bulb, others are directional, like the beam of a flashlight. It is one of these apparently directional emissions, popularly called the Photon Belt, that is of particular interest at this time.
There is considerable disinformation concerning the Photon Belt, much of it arising from channeled information and from Alice Bailey’s earlier writings, which describe it as an energetic ring encircling the Pleiades. An arguably more accurate description is provided by Dr. Paul LaViolette, author of Genesis of the Cosmos and Earth under Fire, who proposes that the Belt is like a galactic “superwave” and that highly charged emissions of its kind have triggered historical cataclysmic events on our planet4 – not unlike the monoliths depicted by Clarke and Kubrick. You might think of the galaxy as a large clock with the stars rotating through pulses of energy beams radiating from the central sun. Every beam is like a tiny sliver of a gigantic pie, each having a particular mix of cosmic emissions that has a direct effect on whatever passes through it. The Photon Belt/Galactic Superwave (PBGS) is one of these slivers.
A super-aware being such as a shaman in an altered state – someone who can assume a point of view outside of the space/time continuum – is able to see events as simultaneous rather than sequential. Thus even if he or she lived many years ago, that seer could perceive the Earth moving through the PBGS and note the changes it might trigger, much the way astrological and earthly events can be simulated with computers by today’s scientists. Reports of these possibilities have been preserved both in reference to Earth calendars and in terms of astronomical events, such as the precise alignment of the solar and galactic planes with the winter solstice.
As with all projections into the future, the exact date of the predicted crescendo of the impending shift represents a probability rather than a certainty. However, we are apparently already well into the active region of the PBGS, and dramatic changes are occurring not only on our planet but on every planet in the solar system.
Both author, lecturer, and clairvoyant David Wilcock and Russian scientist Aleskey Dmitriev have collected scientific data from NASA and other sources that document the observable, dramatic shifts currently taking place on every single planet in our solar system (for more details about these changes, see Transformation of the Solar System5 by Aleskey Dmitriev and the Hyperdimensional Report6 by Wilcock and Richard C. Hoagland):
Sun: More activity in the past 65 years than in the previous 1,150 years combined.
Mercury: Polar ice discovered, along with a strong intrinsic magnetic field – surprising for a supposedly dead planet.
Venus: In less than 30 years, a 2,500 percent increase in auroral brightness as well as substantive global atmospheric changes (a sharp decrease of sulphur-containing gases). The inversion of light and dark spots – the first time ever detected.
Moon: The generation of a first-stage atmosphere, with a growing natrium atmosphere reaching to 9,000 km in height.
Mars: “Global warming,” huge storms, disappearance of polar icecaps, a cloudy growth in the equator area, and an unusual increase of ozone concentration.
Jupiter: A more than 200 percent increase in the brightness of surrounding plasma clouds. Doubling of the magnetic field’s intensity, large auroral anomalies, and a change in the Jupiter-Io system of currents.
Saturn: A major decrease in equatorial jet stream velocities in only 20 years, accompanied by a surprising surge of X-rays from the equator. The appearance of auroras.
Uranus: “Really big, big changes” in brightness, increased global cloud activity (abrupt large-scale growth of magnetosphere activity), and significant shifting of the magnetic poles.
Neptune: A 40 percent increase in atmospheric brightness and a significant shifting of the magnetic poles.
Pluto: A 300 percent increase in atmospheric pressure even as Pluto recedes farther from the Sun. The growth of dark spots.
For our own home planet the list of changes currently underway is no less impressive. The Earth is experiencing an accelerating magnetic drift;7 the North Pole having already wandered some 1,100 kilometers out into the Arctic Ocean. We are also witnessing significant variations in the Earth’s gravity field,8. climactic changes,9 increased volcanic10 and tectonic11 activity, and other natural catastrophes (for an in-depth view of these changes on Earth, see Wilcock’s The Divine Cosmos: A Breathtaking New View of Reality12 and Dmitriev’s Planetophysical State of the Earth and Life13).
The passage through the PBGS turns out to be an inconvenient truth of the highest order. It explains, for instance, why natural catastrophes and global warming are occurring on the Earth at such an alarming rate and why humankind’s efforts to reverse the process are about as effective as making a one-dollar contribution to the Gates Foundation. It offers a quasi-scientific explanation for why so many of us are feeling uncomfortable with the state of our lives and dissatisfied with our belief systems. It provides a reason for the gnawing apprehension many feel that something dramatic is happening all around us.
This is myth-shattering stuff. As Dmitriev notes, “We must begin to organize our attention and thinking to understand that climatic changes on Earth are only one part, or link, in a whole chain of events taking place in the heliosphere [the magnetic field that emanates from the Sun extending throughout the entire solar system and beyond].”
Yet these discoveries do not make the six o’clock news. If they did, they would marginalize the importance of almost every other story, and they would reveal that the institutions to which people have long ago abdicated their power are woefully impotent to do anything about what’s really taking place. The powers that be are less than forthcoming in either addressing these momentous issues or making them known to the general public. Quite the contrary. The 2004 movie The Day after Tomorrow, which depicted cataclysmic changes as a result of the sudden collapse of the Gulf Stream oceanic current – while taking certain liberties with respect to timelines and dramatic effects – is stunningly accurate. Notably, the New York Times published a story the same year entitled NASA Curbs Comments on Ice Age Disaster Movie:14
“No one from NASA is to do interviews or otherwise comment on anything having to do with the film (The Day After Tomorrow),” said the April 1 message, which was sent by Goddard’s [NASA’s Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland] top press officer. “Any news media wanting to discuss science fiction vs. science fact about climate change will need to seek comment from individuals or organizations not associated with NASA.”
According to the Observer International website,15 U.S. President George W. Bush received a clandestine report from the Pentagon describing the reality of imminent climate changes that echoed much of the film’s message. The website article reads:
Climate change over the next 20 years could result in a global catastrophe costing millions of lives in wars and natural disasters.
A secret report, suppressed by US defence chiefs and obtained by The Observer, warns that major European cities will be sunk beneath rising seas as Britain is plunged into a “Siberian” climate by 2020. Nuclear conflict, mega-droughts, famine and widespread rioting will erupt across the world.
The document predicts that abrupt climate change could bring the planet to the edge of anarchy as countries develop a nuclear threat to defend and secure dwindling food, water and energy supplies. The threat to global stability vastly eclipses that of terrorism, say the few experts privy to its contents.
According to another story16 published on the Observer International website, Greg Cist, the Republican House Conference director, also in 2004, sent an email to the press secretaries of Republican congressmen advising them on how to render changes in the global environment a non-issue. The web article says:
It [the email] tells them how global warming has not been proved, air quality is “getting better,” the world’s forests are “spreading, not deadening,” oil reserves are “increasing, not decreasing,” and the “world’s water is cleaner and reaching more people.”
The email – sent on 4 February – warns that Democrats will “hit us hard” on the environment. “In an effort to help your members fight back, as well as be aggressive on the issue, we have prepared the following set of talking points on where the environment really stands today,” it states.
The memo – headed “From medi-scare to air-scare” – goes on: “From the heated debate on global warming to the hot air on forests; from the muddled talk on our nation’s waters to the convolution on air pollution, we are fighting a battle of fact against fiction on the environment – Republicans can’t stress enough that extremists are screaming ‘Doomsday!’ when the environment is actually seeing a new and better day.”
To those who believe there is room for valid scientific debate on the issues of global warming and Earth changes, there is little to say in response to such damping down of information other than to agree that we each have a right to believe whatever gives us comfort. In the end, the facts always speak for themselves and all beliefs are washed away before them. The main issue is the magnitude of what’s happening and how it’s already affecting every object in our solar system, including each human being on this planet. Geologists and other scientists confirm that major shifts have happened every now and then to the Earth and her inhabitants. We seem to be in one of those “nows.”
To understand why shift happens, we need only to refer to Newton’s first law, the law of inertia: “An object at rest or traveling in uniform motion will remain at rest or traveling in uniform motion unless and until an external force is applied.” The PBGS is applying the force, and the solar system and all its elements are responding. The lower life forms are as a matter of course transformed by these energies. But we humans have been given the gift of free choice. Consequently, we cannot make the shift unless we take deliberate and considered action.
How we choose to react to these forces emanating from the central sun of our galaxy is undoubtedly the single most important decision of our lives. Yet humans are subject to the law of inertia as well. For the most part, we resist change unless prompted to shift by pain or suffering. And our ability to adjust to incremental levels of suffering seems to know no limits. We are currently mired in a morass of events that threaten our physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being, yet we still find a way to put on our brave faces and carry on as if nothing is happening.
The forces we are all experiencing are real, far more real than death or taxes. They are occurring not to destroy us but to prompt us to shift to a new level of development. We are being invited to shift along with mother Earth and her sister planets. Our bodies feel it, our sleep patterns reflect it, our thoughts are driven by it, and our awakening consciousness demands that we resonate with it. We are each caught in a compelling current that we can ultimately either resist or join. If we choose to join and ride it, we become willing participants in our own transformation into a higher state of being.
Consider it this way: We each consciously chose to be on this planet at this time so we could take part in this extraordinary cosmic event. To duck it would be to miss everything we came here for.
