Have you ever leaped out into space, not knowing why you trusted, knowing you no longer had a choice?
Have you ever seen a cripple toss away her crutches and run with the wind, or a blind man throw away his false illusions and see? Have you ever looked into the mirror of your own eyes and seen infinity?
There’s a lot of things we call miraculous. Is it really so, or is it simply a matter of perspective? I am reminded of the story told of when the Spanish first came to the Americas in their sailing ships. The native people of the land simply could not see them because they had no concept for boats that big! We see what we are conditioned to see.
We are so deeply conditioned by third-dimensional illusions that it is truly a miracle we still can dream. What if we were to see the world through fourth or fifth dimensional eyes? Would our realities shift accordingly? Would miracles become our way of life? “Lead us from illusion to truth”, said the ancient Indian sages. “Lead us from darkness to light. Lead us from death to immortality!”
There is a new vision that is increasingly emerging in our planetary culture. We live in a time of profound transition. We are moving from a third-dimensional “caterpillar consciousness”, where reality is defined in terms of limitation and struggle, to a fifth-dimensional “butterfly consciousness”, infused with the infinite possibilities of an infinite universe. Our bodies are changing, global systems are changing, planetary frequency grids are changing, and our personal alignment with spirit is changing as well.
The chrysalis is the transitional stage where the caterpillar is no longer a caterpillar, yet the butterfly has not emerged yet. It is a cocoon that holds the possibilities for what could be. It is frightening at times because we can no longer maintain our old identities, no longer shelter within familiar illusions. It is a leap of faith where all we have left is an insistent inner voice that calls to us to pull away deep inside ourselves, yet won’t tell us what we can expect in return. Like a bear hibernating for the winter, it is a time to dream our dreams, and know that sooner or later we will awaken to a new dawn, a new springtime for the planetary soul!
There is a project I feel called to help birth, which I am calling the Chrysalis Network. Our current planetary structures, based on a paradigm of greed, suppression, and fear, are destined for extinction. We cannot continue as we are, and survive. A new world is being born, however, from the ashes of the old, based on a new paradigm of wisdom, co-operation, and respect for all life. The old world is a closed system, and leads to death. The new world is an open system, and leads to resurrection and life. What will the new world look like?
As with the caterpillar on its way to becoming a butterfly, the Chrysalis Network is a worldwide, multi-faceted think-tank that serves to bridge these two worlds, and to hold a powerful vision for what we are becoming. Comprising of individuals, communities, and organizations dedicated to serving Earth and all humanity, we seek to bring fifth-dimensional possibilities into existing structures in order to create life-sustaining alternatives.
Many are responding to the call of this emerging paradigm. We are dreaming new dreams of a brave new world, and finding our own unique roles within this mass dream of Earth’s future. Yet these discoveries and visions, isolated by themselves, are not enough. Each of us carries one thread in a grand loom, one note in a beautiful song of humanity’s awakening. How do we weave these together, sharing our visions, skills, and resources with each other with enough impact so as to birth a fourth-dimensional and eventually fifth-dimensional planetary consciousness? We are preparing for a quantum leap in our evolution that will give rise to a unified world soul, a global brain within the body of Mother Earth. How can we facilitate this emergence?
Global visionaries cannot remain isolated. Quantum physicists need to speak their deep understandings of natural law within the structures of global politics, politicians need to become fully aware of the impact of the “free energy” revolution on shaping a new global economy, and inventors need to appreciate the impact of such technologies on healing our environment.
Biologists need to work more interactively with those who can take the healing arts to the next level, while health practitioners need to understand the implications of new DNA research. And embracing all of this, a wise new spirituality that is relevant to the challenges and opportunities of these times needs to emerge among us, taking us beyond the confines of religious dogma into the Age of Light that dawns before us.
Likewise, new paradigms in childbirth, parenting, education, architecture, farming, ecology, and global community need to be explored more fully. Inspired visionaries need to be funded by philanthropists who have the good of the planet at heart, and inspired ideas need to be disseminated through music, art, gatherings, books and the media networks in a way that can reach the masses.
Millions of people around the world, each with our own unique gifts, our own unique skills, are waking up, beginning to come together as one heart and mind, under the guidance of a single emerging planetary soul. The Chrysalis Network is designed to facilitate this process by holding a clear vision of the future. What will butterfly consciousness look like? If we can clearly see what we are moving towards, perhaps it will become easier to get there.
What would happen if leading visionaries in every field of human endeavor could find and support each other in one shared mandala of awakened global consciousness? What if this included geologists, astrophysicists, mystics, futurists, prophets, seers, shamans, politicians, educators and historians, all dedicated to sharing our visions, skills, and resources in order to co-create the New Earth?
A new species is being born among us under the guidance of the One Spirit that seeks to inspire our collective hearts and minds. What will this new species look like? Are the Indigo and Violet children perhaps the forerunners of this new human race? How can we best support them, and be supported in turn by them?
One thing that has become clear to me is that cannot pull ourselves out of our current third-dimensional planetary mess through third-dimensional solutions. It is only through creating a new, shared paradigm of fifth-dimensional butterfly consciousness that we can do so. It has also become clear to me that if we are to actively co-create a new planetary paradigm we need to utilize the internet.
I see the internet as a third-dimensional reflection of the emerging global brain, and there are new interactive technologies becoming available now that can take our co-creations to a whole new level. I hope to utilize some of these technologies in the Chrysalis Network. If this project finds resonance for you, please contact me.
Perhaps the first step is simply sharing our highest visions of what a fifth-dimensional “ascended” planet might look like, and how we might get there. Is this based on a recurring dream, a waking vision, a shamanic journey or vision quest? Is this something you’ve always known? Is this something derived from a particular area of study that you feel passionate about? As we share these visions with each other, we empower them into creation, and can listen ever deeper to guidance from the world soul as it seeks to emerge through humanity! I will put together writings that I receive on this theme as a compendium to share with the list. If you feel led to share something, please me know if you would like your names, emails, or websites to be included. I would also like to link with those who are already involved in shaping these visions of global butterfly consciousness!
The tide of change is sweeping through our planet. Each wave brings in new energies of transformation. Each wave then returns back to the ocean, carrying the accumulated debris of an old shoreline back for renewal. It’s a steady pulsing rhythm, rising and falling, advancing and retreating, then advancing again.
We are that tide. And the tide is rising!
