Activation of the Inner Crystal Template

The Story Behind the
Activation of the Inner Crystal Template

Some may think this article sounds like alot of woo-woo. For others it will resonate. Either way, if you read with an open mind, perhaps you'll embrace the significance of what's happening on 9.9.9 at Siesta Key. And, you might have a further appreciation of The Lull we've been living in.

After the work we did together on the Prism of Light in 2008, dreams and altered states in meditation relating to that original work began to come in. One dream resulted in us anchoring 9 Peace Poles at several Prism of Light locations. Another dream was a catalyst for the Crystal of Peace Mandala that the community colored and dedicated. More dreams have come that I'd like to share before the 9.9.9 Activation of the Inner Crystal Template within each of us. But first, a little background.

The Grid

The first thing to be aware of is "The Grid." A Grid or framework of imperceptible light has been around the planet since its creation. Large numbers of people believe "the grid" is something new, but it's not. Patricia had a dream recently about Hermes Trismegistus who was known as "the personification of Universal Wisdom" "the Egyptian God Thoth" or the "messenger of the Gods." In the dream she was shown a white stone tablet with ancient inscriptions on it. This dream resulted in hours of research. Hermes earliest writings which survived the destruction of the library of Alexandria was called the Divine Pymander. In it he was shown the wonder of the Cosmic Mind and the birth of form in "cosmic streams of light" which happened at creation. Plato called the grid a "dodecahedron" and said it was the "ideal body of the Cosmos." To Native Americans the web around the planet was created by Spider Woman who sacredly connects the earth to spirit in this web.

The grid is a "crystalline" blueprint of energy behind all form and in all dimensions - seen and unseen. The physical universe cannot exist without it and is made up of it. It is the unseen web which holds all matter together. The grid in the earth and over it, is an organic matrix of lines of light, of magnetic energies, of fractal thought forms, in a geometric design, holding the consciousness code for all life.

During the Harmonic Convergence in August 1987 "The Grid" was brought to the awareness of thousands worldwide when an astrological configuration of planets created a six-pointed Star of David over the planet. Sixteen years later, during the Full Lunar Eclipse of the Harmonic Concordance, the grid was fully experienced in consciousness by millions of people worldwide who had an awakening that they were spiritual beings having a physical experience. It was said that those two events created the openings for what we now participate in - the return of the Children of Light, the New Age, the New Human, the Shift and Ascension.

The Dreams of The Crystals

So what does all that have to do with us on 09/09/09? We're all familiar with one of the Hermetic "Truths" in the Emerald Tablets which says, "As above, so below." If the grid exists above, in the unseen world, so too must it exist below in the visible world. If there's a crystalline grid around the planet and within all forms on earth, then humans, who are made up of the elements of oxygen, carbon, hydrogen, must also contain a similar crystalline grid. Most everyone knows that diamond crystals come from carbon and water holds crystalline form as shown in the work of Dr Masaru Emoto. So in essence, we are already crystal beings.

There were several more dreams confirming the importance of the work of09/09/09. In one dream the large crystal that split in half during our ceremony on the 2009 vernal equinox was shown. The words "Crystals will absorb and change colors depending on whatever you want to release or change. Crystals are activated by thought and energy and are transmitters and receivers of energy" were heard. If you attended that Equinox ceremony, you know it was a highly charged and sacred atmosphere. The 7" x 5" crystal split in half at the end of that ceremony.

In the second dream, these two words, "Chad Tahara" was heard. Waking the next morning neither word made any sense, so it was another day of research. Chad is a landlocked country in the middle of Africa known as the "Heart of Africa." Africa is the birthplace of humanity. Tahara was an actual Islamic word that means "ritual cleansing" or "crystal clear purification." These dreams were instrumental in suggesting two things - an alchemical transforming of carbon into diamond. The first was that we prepare ourselves by purifying and cleansing using a specific technique called elemental breathing. The second was that we go into the heart center to activate our inner crystal selves to birth the new crystalline human.

Grand energetic portals will open on 09/09/09, 10/10/10, 11/11/11 and 12/12/12. These doorways of light open to the invisible and unseen. The openings are readying the planet for the shift from old alignments, old cycles, old ways of thinking, being and doing, into a new harmonic. Groups, organizations, gatherings, teachers, and holy leaders all over the world are coming together on those dates to hold ceremony, activate ancient memories and tools and bring people of the heart together as one family.

We are aligning ourselves with the Cosmic Blueprint. We are activating the crystal within, weaving a web of light between one another. We are realizing and magnifying the promises in the prophecies of old. In the Divine Pymander, Hermes Trismegistus taught that 'man' will shed his darkness and return to the Light of the Eighth Sphere. That light is the Grid of magnetic love and harmony that encircles the planet. By living in our heart centers we activate the crystals within, coming home to our Divine Selves.

Sending heart light and love in the crystal grid,

In the Lull

It first started in early June. Then the three eclipses came one behind the other leaving energetic impressions on the psyche. Something was going on but we weren't quite sure about it. There was something palpable in the air over and beyond the snow birds' departure, the summer doldrums or the eclipses. There was a fall off in attendance at classes and group events that would otherwise draw large crowds. Friends said they were experiencing feelings of malaise or uncertainty but no one was entirely sure what was happening. What was certain was that everyone felt they were re-trenching. They were pulling back from the outside world, going within, doing nothing, taking a break, or doing something completely out of the ordinary.

It appears we've been in some sort of self-imposed lull which bears examining. For a couple years now, we've been consciously taking stock of our lives, shifting our perspectives of what's real and what's not, examining how we relate to one another, and gaining insight on how to develop our own authenticity and individual power. We've been questioning everything. More importantly, we've been getting answers from within through insights or synchronous events. While living our daily lives, facing obstacles and challenges, or even molting, we've been consciously or unconsciously "doing the work."

The stories shared have been notable. Some long term marriages have suddenly ended. Unexpected illnesses or deaths have occurred. Friendships have been severely tested, re-examined or put in limbo. Attendance at group functions or centers has fallen off. Some have spent time inside the confines of their homes, venturing out very little. Others have taken a break from "spiritual pursuits" by participating in more mundane activities. Many have been on deep personal inner journeys.

The linear, analytical and logical mind, (province of the masculine energies,) has been dominant on earth for more than 2500 years. It called us to action by going outside of ourselves, by doing or fixing things. Now, we're witnessing this energy sliding aside so that the more receptive and reflective energy (the feminine energies) can stand equally with it. In the Lull, we're experiencing and receiving the feminine nurturing energies that teach us how to go within for our own answers. In the quiet time we're understanding that one is not more important than the other, rather we're learning how to embrace and integrate both energies. There's a realization that we can hold and sustain both sides of our nature in harmony.

It's clear from the stories that the lull has caused new ways of being and behaving. Reacting the same way to people, relationships, problems or events that no longer "feel right" simply continues the old cycle. And so, many have made conscious decisions to change the way they act or react, eliminating the need to continue the endless drama. The decisions were made with inner confidence and in surprising calmness. Focus was directed only on the desired outcome. All said they were peacefully detached from the outcome. The tail no longer wagged the dog.

Seeds were planted over the years through the people, books, teachers or studies that we encountered along the way. The seeds lay in fertile ground, waiting for light (sun) and knowledge (rain) to germinate and bring forth the new fruit. There's a time in the growing season before the harvest when what's been planted is left alone to grow. Left alone in the quiet time we can now experience inspired action. It's the time to rest and shore up our resources before the next wave of activity. For activity, or creative motion, is the basis of our 3-Dimensional world. We're regaining our equilibrium and balance so that when new insights are uncovered during the lull, they have easy access to consciousness so that we're ready for the creative bursts that follow.

Unusual ideas, people with different teachings, startling concepts, and changes in consciousness are on the horizon and will soon make themselves known. Our connection to our Inner Guidance will become clearer. Problems will surface but without the intense energies of the past feeding them, or the hooks into the outcome, they will gently disappear. We'll act with a spirit of cooperation and reconciliation, releasing old patterns of anger and resentment calmly and quickly. We'll align ourselves with Source, seeing and experiencing the signs and messages and patterns that have always been present for us to see.

Every shift in consciousness and awareness brings us into deep knowing that we are never separate from one another but united in the common experience. We've arrived. In this lull time before the next wave of action, enjoy the rest and retrenchment for what it is. Ponder the solutions that we can bring to the table. Practice peace, compassion, and lovingness. Remember, it's a magnificent time to be alive on Earth!

Sending oceans of blessings and love in the lull,

Summer Solstice 2009

Summer Solstice 2009
Dedicating the Crystal of Peace Mandala

In the vastness of space, amid millions of brilliant stars is The Endless Field of Possibilities. In that place we create and re-create eternally. In that field we gathered to honor the full return of the Light of Arthur, the Light of the Christ Consciousness, the Light of the Sun God RA, and most of all, the illumination of the Sun's Light into our Hearts.

Last December we stood on the dark shores of the Gulf and placed our dreams, intentions and visions into Tibetan Rock Salt, releasing those prayers into the Gulf waters. On the Summer Solstice we welcomed back the illumination and manifestation of those dreams. On Sunday June 21 the solar rays were at maximum power reflecting the direct physical manifestations of growth, fullness, and abundance.

A special part of this Solstice was the dedication of the community mandala known as the Crystal of Peace Mandala. Students Cheyenne, Katie, Ian and Mikayla carried it around the circle so that fresh flower petals, holding the desires and intentions of all the people gathered, could be placed on the center of the mandala. Those intentions were joined with the intentions of the ones who colored the mandala at Wellness Fest. The flower petals will be dried over the summer then released into the waters of the gulf on the Winter Solstice in December and carried on the tides and currents around the world.

The ceremony was carefully orchestrated to coincide with events happening around the world, specifically the One Song Project. A song was created by Aborigines, musicians and song-keepers as a love song tribute to the planet's waters. The chant Oma Ka Om began on the shores of Australia in the morning and moved across the world with us joining in for a full minute of chanting with the sounds of the Blue Whales.

And so it was that after weeks of planning, coordinating and organizing, drumming began on a hot and humid Sunday afternoon. More than 150 men, women and children came to celebrate the Summer Solstice at Unity. Deep gratitude to all the leaders and participants in the community who gave their service to make the ceremony so magical. Without their participation this ceremony would not have been as successful.

Dr. Marguerite Barnett who emerged from the crowd swirling and dancing in a costume of hot yellows, oranges and reds designed to reflect the solar intensity of the day. Reverend Elizabeth Thompson, Senior Minister at Unity who welcomed and blessed the attendees. Seven men, in the ceremonial attire of their respective spiritual practices, who opened the seven directions by calling in the guardian spirits. 13 Clan Mothers in the vibrant colors representative of their moon, who stepped forward in the circle to offer a prayer.

Thank you to Subhan Dawson of Rising Tide (East), Sal Manfre, Healer & Dowser (South), James West, Qi Gong Master (West), David Hamera of the Mockingbird Clan (North), Jay Turtle Hawk of the Mockingbird Clan (Earth-Below), David Cooper, Baliyan Priest and Healer (Sky-Above) and Jim Toole of Radiance of Sarasota, (Center.)

Thank you Clanmothers - Trish Engert, Zan Benham, Pat Ready, Ann Houk, Patricia Cockerill, Eileen Kemp, Lisa Clift, Joanne Driscoll, Sharon Elizabeth James, Pam Cooper, Jean Hamilton, Linda Williams and Michelle Bowling, mother of Ian and Mikayla.

Thank you Rose Lettiere for the blessing of the waters and Patti Star for the spray oils. Thank you Lisa Nelson and Lee DeOvies our Fire goddesses. Thank you Diana Daffner and Susan Safiya Slack for fluting and drumming as twirler Kismet Weber performed the final dance. Thank you Elizabeth Jacoby for your help with the Crystal of Peace shirts.

Special affection and gratitude to Zan Benham and Patricia Cockerill for the endless hours you devoted to reviewing and editing the seven rewrites. Thank you for your endless support and the effort that you poured into the ceremony. None of this can happen without our wonderful collaborative partnership.

Most of all THANK YOU COMMUNITY for coming out to be a part of these ceremonies. It's always done in service to you and you make it all worthwhile!

Photos of the event can be seen on this link: Summer Solstice 2009 or on Sarasota Sam's Blog where you can hear the chant Oma Ka Om.

Endless blessings and love,
