EXPLORING THE 2012 PHENOMENON
January 1, 2012
By Kiara Windrider
For many in the alternative community, prophecies related to the year 2012 have become a cauldron of unending speculation. It seems to me that a lot of people have looked to this time with equal measure of yearning and dread, excitement and fear. There is no single scenario for what ‘2012’ really means, or if it means anything at all. How do we go about sifting truth from fiction, and prepare for whatever changes may come ahead without falling into the twin traps of gullibility and cynicism?
Whatever else we may think about the 2012 debate, it is clear to me that we are at a tipping point in human history. Our relationship with our fragile planetary ecosystem is rapidly becoming unsustainable. A third of all species on the planet have already been driven to extinction during the past hundred years, and the question inevitably arises whether the human species might possibly be next. From an ecological perspective, the future for humanity and the Earth looks uncompromisingly grim.
In contrast to this, many of the scenarios pertaining to 2012 represent a last great hope for humanity, a hope that some great cosmic event, extraterrestrial intervention, or mysterious shift in consciousness would suddenly whisk us out of the social and environmental cesspools we have so foolishly created into a golden age of enlightenment, ecological sustainability and peace. Most of us would certainly like to believe that this is possible. But is this merely wishful thinking, or is there some realistic basis for these great hopes, an actual mechanism that could generate this profound shift into a more unitive consciousness?
As it turns out, I do feel we are on the cusp of an evolutionary transformation, and I do believe there is a specific mechanism driving this process, which I will attempt to describe here. I would caution, however, against trying to pin it down to specific dates in linear time.
The following scenario is based on current scientific research, ancient prophecies, and mystical insights into the nature of reality. I would like to propose two axioms to help provide a context for our journey. The first axiom, as mystics in every age have affirmed, is that there is an intelligent unifying force which has shaped our evolutionary journey throughout the ages, an intelligence that is not separate from who we are. The second axiom is that there are distinct and predictable cycles within this evolutionary process, comprised of long periods of gradual change followed by sudden quantum leaps – and that we are currently at the cusp of a rather dramatic quantum leap.
Quantum leaps are central to understanding how our universe functions. As astrophysicist Paul LaViolette proposes in his ‘theory of continuous creation’, the universe did not come into being in a ‘big bang’ of primal creation, but continues to generate new energy, matter, and potential within the centers of galaxies in periodic bursts of intense activity.
These periodic bursts can be perceived as a kind of galactic heartbeat, comprised of high-energy cosmic and gamma rays, which then pulse out in concentric waves of creation throughout each galaxy. In our own galaxy there is evidence to show that these ‘galactic superwaves’ pass through our solar system in cycles of once every 10 to 14 thousand years.
As these galactic superwaves pass through our solar system they initiate corresponding cycles of solar activity. Scientists tell us that we are now experiencing a peak in the solar cycle, which could generate the strongest solar flares and coronal mass ejections in the past 12,000 years.
This long-term cycle of solar activity is directly related to the magnetic field of the earth. Gradual increases in solar activity over the past 12,000 years have coincided with a corresponding decline in the earth’s magnetic field, accompanied by fluctuations in the north and south magnetic axis. These fluctuations have been getting exponentially stronger in the past few decades, and scientists tell us that we may be very close to a time, as happens periodically, when the polarity of the earth’s magnetic field could suddenly collapse and reverse itself.
All life on Earth is directly linked through these magnetic fields. Changes in the magnetic fields reflect as changes within our physical bodies, as well as changes in our emotional, mental, and spiritual states of consciousness. As fluctuations within the earth’s magnetic field get stronger these have been reflecting as extreme shifts and changes within our experience of reality, with the corresponding breakdown of old systems and structures of identity.
Scientists tell us, based on readings of glacial ice cores, that the actual reversal of magnetic polarity tends to happen quite suddenly, and very quickly, usually in the space of a few hours or days. Once the fluctuations reach a critical mass there is a sudden collapse and then reversal of the magnetic axis of the earth.
From a slightly different perspective, many indigenous prophecies around the world also speak of a time of great purification and change, a time of shift into a new age of expanded consciousness.
Don Alejandro Cirillo is a Mayan priest, head of the Mayan Council of Elders, living in the Guatemalan highlands. During a recent visit with him, he shared with our group that in his lineage there have been thirteen prophecies regarding this shift of the ages. The thirteenth and final prophecy has to do with three days of darkness. When you find yourself going through these ‘three days’, he emphasized, know that the time of transition is at hand. It is not a time to go into fear but to celebrate. Referring to it as year zero, he said this is the time we have long awaited, a time that will initiate an era of peace and harmony with the forces of the earth and with galactic consciousness.
We noted that he did not say much about specific dates for this event. Like any birthing, nature has her own cycles, which may be different from any ‘due date’ we care to impose on the process. “But we do know that the time is soon,” emphasized Don Cirillo, “and that the collapsing of old identities is an integral part of the birthing process.”
Meanwhile, the Hindu calendar system refers to four stages that we pass through in our journey across the galactic planes, starting with an age of light, and spiraling down through periods of ever-increasing darkness. What is interesting here is that although the descent from light into darkness is a gradual process, the return from darkness to light happens rather suddenly and dramatically.
I believe that many ancient prophecies that predict events in the future are based on an understanding of natural cycles and memories of the past. Could it be that these days of darkness, or dawning of new light, is referring to the same phenomenon as the magnetic polar reversal, and holds the key to a deeper understanding of the evolutionary transformation at hand?
Our perceptions of reality are linked with the way our nervous systems are wired into subtler bodies of existence, which are biologically linked with our genetic codes. During the time of the magnetic reversal, there is a temporary collapse of the earth’s magnetic shields, which allows enormous quantities of cosmic radiation to enter the earth’s atmosphere.
This radiation would normally be highly detrimental to physical survival. However, during these days of darkness, it is likely that we will enter into a dreamlike state in which our emotional, mental and physical bodies would be allowed to undergo a profound re-orientation of identity and consciousness. Much like a caterpillar going through its cocooning, the increase of cosmic radiation would initiate a mutational process in which we would find ourselves metamorphing into a new species of humanity, which some refer to as homo luminous, or the divine human. Indeed, this mutational process is not limited to humans, and biologists are beginning to understand now that the earth is a single interpenetrating web of life, and that cycles of magnetic reversal in the past have been directly associated with massive evolutionary leaps and mutations throughout the planet.
This magnetic reversal is the mechanism driving the transformation of consciousness within the earth and solar system today. I postulated earlier that there is an underlying intelligence unfolding within this evolutionary process, and that we are not separate from it. This realization has profound implications for our journey through year zero. Are we passive observers, victims of what could easily be perceived as a fearful chain of events, or can we consciously shape events according to our highest visions of truth? Existing as we do both within and beyond creation, perhaps we are given the power to walk between the worlds, co-creating new dimensions of reality beyond anything we can currently imagine!

APPROACHING YEAR ZERO
By Kiara Windrider
August 31, 2012
As we approach the winter solstice of 2012, many seem to be struck by a feverish intensity of anticipation. For some it represents a dark scenario of doomsday and death, the end of the world as we are struck down by meteors and asteroids, or engulfed by tsunamis, earthquakes and volcanic ash. For others it is the expectation of a golden age of unprecedented beauty and light which magically dawns upon the planet as we reach the end of the Mayan calendar and cross the galactic equator. For many it is just a date on the calendar like any other. And then there are endless scenarios in between.
Amidst all the hype, debates and controversies, the one thing we do know is that we are seven billion people living in a fragile planetary ecosystem which cannot for much longer sustain our current way of life. We have reached an ecological crossroads and cannot easily turn the clock back.
“Keep contaminating your bed, and one day you will suffocate in your own wastes”, said Chief Seattle in his profoundly prophetic speech more than a hundred and fifty years ago. It seems to me that we are not so far from this tipping point, and amid all the grim speculations about what could happen in countless ‘2012’ scenarios, the worst outcome I can imagine is that NOTHING changes!
Einstein reminds us that we cannot solve the extreme problems of our present age from the same level of consciousness that created them. But what if the entire field of human consciousness is about to change, and that there was a genuine basis for this? Assuming such a thing was possible, what would be the mechanism and timing for such a shift?
From the very outset, I wish to say that I don’t put too much emphasis on linear dates. I have been researching long-range evolutionary cycles for much of my life, but it is impossible to fit these cycles precisely into a linear conception of time. What I would like to offer, however, is my understandings of an integrated mechanism for what many are calling the ‘shift’, and describe how we can assist in co-creating this.
A few years ago I had gone to Guatemala with a group of people to visit some of the sacred sites of the ancient Mayas. We were fortunate to spend some time with the head of the National Council of Elders, Don Alejandro Cirilo, who shared with us his understandings of the Mayan prophecies.
We first asked him about the Mayan calendar, which he was quick to point out was not so much a linear calendar as a map of galactic frequencies. He did not wish to be pigeonholed about any specific timing for this however, and spoke instead about the thirteen prophecies that had been passed down through the generations related to the ‘shift’.
Twelve of these prophecies have already taken place, he stated. The thirteenth prophecy has to do with the time immediately preceding the ‘shift’, and involved ‘three days of darkness’. This would be a specific event, he said, not just a metaphorical symbol, and emphasized that this was not something to fear. Rather, it was a time that we have awaited for a very long time, and would change the very nature of consciousness on the planet.
The Mayans are not the only ones who speak about this ‘three days of darkness’. I have come across this theme over and over in different cultural traditions, but did not have a context to understand what this meant until I started exploring some scientific territory, specifically related to shifting magnetic fields on earth.
The earth’s magnetic field has been decreasing steadily over the past couple thousand years, a decrease that has become exponential over the last couple centuries, hitting an unprecedented low point in the past couple decades. Many scientists expect that when the conditions are right, this could lead to a temporary dissolution of the earth’s magnetic fields, followed by a magnetic pole reversal.
As I show in my book, ‘Year Zero: Time of the Great Shift’, this magnetic reversal seems to be the key to massive evolutionary leaps in planetary history. It is a cyclical process, and takes place approximately once every 12,000 years, a periodicity that can be calculated through a study of the earth’s geological records. This cycle of magnetic reversal also seems to be connected with a 12,000 year cycle of solar intensity, which in turn is linked with a 12,000 year pulse of cosmic and gamma rays emanating from the center of our galaxy.
Is it possible that when the Mayans talk about their calendar being aligned with galactic frequencies, they could be talking about this galactic pulse, what astrophysicist Dr. Paul LaViolette refers to as a ‘galactic superwave’? I believe that the Mayan calendar as well as various ancient calendar systems, mythologies, and prophecies have to do with an understanding of galactic cycles, based not on mystical prophecies of the future but on historical memories of the past.
Interestingly, scientists tell us that when the time is right, the actual reversal of magnetic polarity could happen very quickly, in a matter of a few hours or a few days. Is this the Mayan equivalent of the ‘three days of darkness’?
I would like to suggest that the ‘shift’ we are talking about is directly associated with an upcoming magnetic reversal. All life on earth is directly programmed into the magnetic fields of the earth. So what happens in that brief period of time when this magnetic field drops to zero?
Our thoughts, feelings, memories, and sense of human identity all have to do with linkages between our physical, emotional, mental and soul bodies. What happens when these linkages break down during a collapse of the magnetic field? It is very probable that during this time we would enter into a ‘sleep’ state where our physical senses no longer function in the ordinary way. Like a caterpillar entering its cocoon, an aspect of our being based on a subconscious matrix of limited human identity would begin to dissolve. And as the reversal completes itself, a planetary reset of consciousness would take place aligned with a higher spiral of consciousness.
This could well be the ‘three days of darkness’ that the Mayas talk about, not that the sun disappears from the skies but that our physical senses and sense of human identity goes through a profound shift. Our obsession with separation, suffering and duality would dissolve in preparation for a higher identity, and a higher aspect of our being would be allowed to incarnate.
Metaphorically, we could refer to this next spiral of time as ‘butterfly consciousness’. And just like a butterfly actually carries a completely different configuration of DNA from that of a caterpillar, we ourselves, along with all life on the planet, would go through biological mutations preparing our nervous systems to hold a higher vibration of our soul essence.
Biological mutations are directly linked to magnetic reversals. What scientists have discovered, from research into previous cycles, is that during the time of zero magnetics preceding a reversal, the magnetic shield surrounding the earth no longer serves as a protective barrier for incoming cosmic radiation. The radiation level on earth tends to shoot up tens of times the normal levels, leading to a massive mutation of species. This mutational process during periods of magnetic reversal is the key to the evolution of species.
Sri Aurobindo, a profoundly awakened mystic and seer who spent many decades exploring the far reaches of human consciousness, spoke often about the evolution of humanity from the animal human stage where we were governed mostly by primitive instinct, to the human human stage, where we are conditioned by the thinking mind, to the divine human stage, where we will be unified with the multidimensional presence of the soul.
It is not just about a few people waking up and getting enlightened, but a collective shift of consciousness. Our current stage of evolution is a transitional stage, says Sri Aurobindo. We are not meant to stagnate forever in a state of duality and separation. This stage was necessary as a transition from the animal human to the divine human, but the time has come now for a new species to be birthed within humanity that is capable of experiencing its multidimensional potential within the field of matter, graduating from separation and duality into unity with all life and creation.
So if this scenario is real, what could be the timing of this? Many researchers refer to our precessional crossing of the galactic equator as a significant marker in time. There are also endless mathematical speculations about transitioning from our current age of darkness into an age of light. A more relevant exploration for me is to observe what seems to be going on with the earth’s magnetic fields at this moment in time.
The National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration has been gathering data about the strength and direction of earth’s magnetic field from the past 400 years or so. It is interesting to notice that not only is the earth’s magnetic field decreasing in intensity, but its north-south polar axis is also wandering significantly.
The polar axis has shifted as much in the past 50 years as it did in the 150 years prior to that, and it has travelled as much in the past 10 years as in the 50 years prior to that. There is a significant acceleration in the tilt of the polar axis, and all in the same direction. The north pole is currently moving at the rate of some 40 or 50 km every year in the direction of Siberia, which is extremely fast on a geological time scale.
What this acceleration of tilt seems to indicate is that the magnetic reversal may be close at hand. How close we actually are to this moment of reversal is anybody’s guess, but it is important for us to recognize that, rather than being passive observers, we are an active part of this process. It is not a question for me anymore whether a magnetic reversal will happen, or even a question of when it will happen. What gives me inspiration and joy during these times is the recognition that we are divine co-creators in this process, and that we can choose to shape a new world through the power of our awakened consciousness.
This to me is what Year Zero is about. As multidimensional beings there are certain aspects of our consciousness that are currently incarnated in the material realms. Meanwhile, there are other aspects of our consciousness that exist beyond time, space, and creation. Can we learn to bridge these aspects of our being so we can literally co-create a new earth in accordance with our highest dreams and visions?
This, I feel, is why we are incarnate on earth. This is our work now as we begin to awaken. May we find our way gracefully through these times from darkness to light, from despair to hope, from death to immortality.

Approaching Year Zero – Part 2
By Kiara Windrider
October 29, 2012
In the first part of this series we looked at the big picture of an upcoming planetary shift, or what the Mayans refer to as ‘Year Zero’ I would like to continue this discussion now with an emphasis on the evolutionary aspects of this shift.
Humans tend to assume we are on top of an evolutionary ladder. To rightly understand what this ‘shift’ is about, however, we must step out of this anthropocentric assumption and recognize that we are simply one strand in a planetary web of life. The Earth does not belong to us; we belong to the Earth. Evolution is not a blind game of snakes and ladders but an intricately connected highly intelligent journey of unfoldment. No species evolves on its own; we each simply discover a more meaningful destiny within a larger planetary organism sometimes referred to as ‘Gaia’, which in turn is linked with solar, galactic and universal fields of intelligence.
Darwinian evolution postulates that the evolution of species is a long, slow and uniform process. This view has been contested over the years by the view that this long gradual process is punctuated periodically by sudden, rapid and often cataclysmic events. As we begin to understand the mechanisms that drive these periodic spurts of activity we can also begin to recognize that we have an active role to play within this great unfoldment.
We discussed earlier in this series an underlying mechanism that drives the larger evolutionary cycles, initiated by ‘galactic superwaves’ periodically emanating from the center of our galaxy, moving through a precise synchronization of events within our solar system, and culminating in magnetic reversals on Earth. We postulated that many ancient prophecies were not based so much on visions of the future but on memories of the past, and as such referred to an evolutionary mechanism that was precise and predictable. We further hypothesized that magnetic reversals are the key to evolutionary changes, and that these reversals were directly linked with the prophecy concerning ‘three days of darkness’, which for the Mayans and other wisdom keepers, marked the prelude to ‘year zero’, or the great shift.
How close we are to ‘year zero’ is anybody’s guess. I personally don’t feel that we can date this in a precise fashion and I don’t see this occurring as early as the winter solstice of 2012. I suspect that we will be seeing massive fluctuations in the planetary magnetic fields for several months before the actual reversal takes place, demonstrated by spectacular displays of ‘aurora borealis’ type events in the skies as well as immense spurts of activity within our own psyches.
What I would like to emphasize at this stage is that the timing of this ‘shift’ is not accidental. We are not separate from the Earth, and we are not separate from the galactic consciousness that is driving the evolutionary process. Perhaps it would be accurate to say that in the context of a planetary organism we as humans represent the nervous system of Gaia, and therefore have a role to play in bridging cosmic forces from across the galaxies with the evolution of life here on Earth.
We are multi-dimensional beings. There are aspects of our being that exist beyond time and space, beyond creation itself, as pure consciousness. There are other aspects of our being embodied within the fabric of time, space and matter here on this planet. We are both Creator and Creation, and the entire dance of evolution is about Creator consciousness becoming manifest and self-aware within Creation.
Each time we go through a magnetic reversal there is an opportunity to spiral into a higher octave of awareness. It is like a re-set of consciousness. Our subconscious history as a species, including all our instinctive fears, social and religious conditioning, and deep-seated belief in duality and separation, is held within a magnetic matrix within the aura of the planet. This matrix gets shaken up during a magnetic reversal, with the possibility of shifting to a new equilibrium of consciousness that is more directly aligned with the multi-dimensional reality of our creative beingness.
As the magnetic shields of the earth collapse during the reversal, we are bombarded by extreme amounts of cosmic radiation, allowing new species to emerge within the web of life as others go extinct. Simultaneously, new genetic potentials become activated within existing species that allow Gaia as a planetary organism to evolve to the next stage of her own evolutionary journey. On a human level, we step up the ladder of evolutionary potential, mutating from animal human stages towards what Sri Aurobindo referred to as the ‘divine human’, refining our nervous systems so we can embody more creator-consciousness within our cellular matrix, for the benefit of all creation.
We are not passive observers in this evolutionary process. Passing through a magnetic reversal is no small thing, but we must remember that these things do not happen to us but through us. As creator beings aligned with the consciousness of Gaia, we have a role to play in determining what this next evolutionary leap will look like, and what degree of cataclysmic activity we need to experience.
It seems to me that in previous cycles of magnetic reversal, as in the sinking of Atlantis 11,800 years ago, we were not awake enough as a species to play a co-creative role in planetary awakening. There was much chaos and instability in the collective fields of consciousness and the planet could not sustain the massive waves of cosmic energy that entered our solar system at the time. Magnetic reversals were accompanied by crustal plate displacements and geographical pole shifts which led to the sinking and rising of landmasses, and much cataclysmic destruction as recorded in myths and legends of ancient earth peoples.
This time around however, I feel that we have achieved a higher spiral of consciousness, and that there are enough awakened humans on the planet (assisted by whale and dolphin fields) to achieve a relatively smooth transition into the next stage of collective evolution. But we are not out of the woods yet. The script is still being written, and we still have a choice between a number of potential timelines for what this next phase of collective awakening would look like.
It may be appropriate in this context to say a few words about ‘ascension’, which is a term often used to describe this collective awakening. The term is accurate when referring to the vibrational frequency of matter. Our planet has gone through many shifts in vibrational density over the eons, correlating with various dimensions of experience. What we currently identify as third density is an experience of reality rooted in separation, limitation, and duality.
To the extent that we are identified with third density, it is accurate to talk about ‘ascension’. However, to the extent that we identify with our unlimited potential as multidimensional creator consciousness, I believe it would be more appropriate to refer to this journey as a ‘descension’. It is not about escaping from this reality but transforming it. As we incarnate fully into these bodies of matter we become co-creators of a new earth, fully expressing our multidimensional presence within the dance of creation.
A few months ago I had been swimming in the ocean when I was stung by a portuguese man o’war. The pain was intense, and I blindly raced for shore in panic to find my body covered in large red welts. Despite dabbing myself liberally with aloe vera, the stinging continued unabated, and as evening approached I found myself entering into a highly altered state of consciousness.
That night I had a very vivid shamanic dream. In this dream I found myself lifting off the earth, freely and effortlessly flying through various dimensions at will, recognizing that the density of my physical body had changed, and that I was able to radiate the light of my divine self while still remaining in material form. It was an ecstatic feeling, and felt like the most natural thing in all the worlds.
A little later in the dream I was with a small group of other people and we all started to lift up from third density. It was like learning to fly the dragon in James Cameron’s movie, Avatar, just one big ecstatic dance of freedom. And then later in the dream I was given a date, which indicated a time of collective ascension/descension for Gaia.
I’ve spoken earlier about the perils of focusing on linear dates, and so will not publicly say more. In any case, I think we are still fluctuating between many possible timelines, and there are no calendars set in stone, whether Mayan or otherwise. I also feel that as the time of the shift draws close, we will begin to feel this for ourselves within ourselves, as any mother knows who has ever been pregnant.
An appropriate metaphor for the nature of this timing is the caterpillar turning into a butterfly. At a certain point in its life cycle, the caterpillar identify begins to fade as old thoughts, feelings, forms, and memories dissolve into a genetic soup. In the darkness of the cocoon, new DNA material becomes activated, until eventually in the right timing a butterfly emerges fully formed from the soup.
Our own metamorphosis is an equally mysterious process. Sri Aurobindo refers to the journey of our species from the ‘human human’ to the ‘divine human’, towards a higher stage of evolution in which our identity will no longer be mediated through our current linear third-dimensional thinking mind, but rather through a multidimensional soul-infused supramental center of consciousness.
Just as with a caterpillar however, it is a biological process. We can facilitate this process by consciously aligning with the truth of who we are, but it is not about trying to do something or get someplace through mental effort. It is not about flapping our legs and trying to fly. We don’t become butterflies as long as we are running around trying to become better caterpillars. It is only when we surrender to the evolutionary forces that are already at work within us that the shift happens in its own mysterious way.
We are already beginning to experience this shift. As we go through an accelerating phase of magnetic fluctuations on the earth, our physical, emotional and mental bodies are already undergoing changes. Many of us are going through extreme physical challenges, including aches and pains in the joints, uncomfortable symptoms of kundalini activation, and various assorted miasms and illnesses as the density of our physical bodies responds to higher-vibrational evolutionary forces moving through us.
Many of us are likewise going through intense emotional ‘stuff’, as old patterns begin to surface from wherever they’ve been buried, and we are forced to re-evaluate our priorities in context of who we truly are and what we really want. This includes a re-evaluation of deeply held belief systems as we move out of social conditioning and religious dogma into a direct experience of our multidimensional self. As old identities dissolve, we go through cocooning phases that feel dry, depressing, painful, and suffocating. Our minds stop functioning. We forget names and places. Certainties dissolve. Our attachments to places, people, roles and concepts fall away. We go through a dark night of the senses, even a dark night of the soul, where everything that we have ever known ourselves to be melts into cosmic soup…
And through it all a new light shines, a supramental light not yet seen on this earth, a beautiful emergence of butterfly consciousness where creator and creation ultimately realize their identity as one. This is the evolutionary goal in this grand experiment of life. This is why seven billion beings have chosen to be here at this time in human form. This is what Year Zero is ultimately about!

Approaching Year Zero – Part 3
By Kiara Windrider
January 15, 2013
In the dawning of a new sky, gathered with about twelve hundred people in the ancient temple site of Uxmal in Yucatan, Mexico, I watched the gradual return of light on the shortest day of the year, December 21, 2012 – a day that millions had awaited with varying degrees of dread, excitement and hope. As the sun rose and set again on this last day of a long count Mayan cycle, some were left strangely disappointed that it was not as dramatic a turning point as they had hoped, while others wiped their brows in relief that it wasn’t as cataclysmic an event as they had feared.
Millions of people around the world came together on this day with a collective intention for peace, beauty, and spiritual awakening. Many reported feeling subtle shifts in the planetary fields, and deeper access to higher dimensional realities. Some, including Mayan priest Don Alejandro Cirilo, talked about the shift from a masculine worldview to a feminine worldview, a shift that would affect both men and women, and empower all of us to live in closer harmony and balance with each other and the earth.
As I indicated in earlier articles on the Year Zero theme, I feel that this time of transformation is both a gradual process and a distinct event. When I first heard Don Alejandro Cirillo mention the term ‘year zero’ many years ago he linked this to the prophecy of ‘three days of darkness’. Over a period of time I came to the conclusion that this was referring to the same phenomenon that scientists were calling a ‘magnetic reversal’. The ‘darkness’ was not about our sun suddenly turning dark in the sky above us, but about a deep sleep or ‘cocooning’ which our sense perceptions would undergo during this reversal process as we morphed into a new species of humanity. As a caterpillar genetically transforms into a butterfly, I felt that humanity was preparing for its own metamorphosis into the ‘divine human’ in response to a ‘supramental descent’ of galactic light.
Some research I came across recently opens up further door of possibility that I find equally fascinating and exciting. Extrapolating on Dewey B. Larson’s book, Universe in Motion, (see also www.reciprocalsystem.com, www.rstheory.org, and www.rs2theory.org) a scientific researcher who prefers to simply call himself Daniel, (www.soldierhugs.com) contends that our conventional understanding of astronomy is literally all backward.
Conventional astronomy, referring to stellar evolution, describes a sequence of events where blue dwarves become yellow suns which become red giants which eventually go supernova. Larson’s theory of ‘Reciprocal Systems’, basically reverses this sequence. According to this theory, stars start out as large dust clouds; condense into red supergiants, become orange giants, then yellow and white stars, and then on to blue giants, before going supernova.
When understood rightly, claims Larson, this backward sequence provides a logical and consistent pattern of evolution which eliminates the need for a number of mathematical devices introduced by conventional astronomers to make their theories fit, including concepts such as dark matter, dark energy, even black holes and antimatter.
Instead, it opens up the doorway to a new understanding of time, space, gravitational energy and matter, which in turn creates an exciting bridge to a deeper understanding of mystical phenomena, dimensional transformation, and conscious evolution.
For instance, Larson’s theory postulates that the speed of light is not a limit, but rather a boundary. Matter is lost when an element goes faster than light, and is gained when the same element returns to speeds slower than light. Matter is constantly crossing this boundary back and forth, and gaining or losing mass in the process. What we call radioactivity has to do with elements crossing back and forth over this boundary. When isotopes of matter travel across this boundary to move faster than light, they dissolve in a flurry of radioactivity. When they travel across this boundary to speeds slower than light, new isotopes of that element get created.
This level of creation cannot be accomplished in the kind of particle accelerators we currently possess, however. We need furnaces like solar or galactic cores, which as astrophysicist Paul LaViolette indicates in his theory of continuous evolution, are the cauldrons where new creation takes place.
Larson’s theory further postulates that just as electrons shift orbits in quantum jumps, so does stellar evolution happen in quantum shifts. These quantum shifts take place in far less time than conventional astronomy has understood, because our dating methods have to do with an incorrect understanding of radioactivity, which is the basis of most dating systems. Thus, humans have been around long enough to witness our sun jump from orange giant to yellow star, and will be around to witness our jump from yellow star to white star.
In fact, if his theory is accurate, this jump could take place in our own lifetimes. Suns feed on matter. The more matter available to a sun the hotter it gets. There is an incursion of vast amounts of cosmic dust currently beginning to enter our solar system, a phenomenon that LaViolette would explain as the result of galactic superwaves from the core of our galaxy periodically overcoming the heliopause, or magnetic shield around our solar system, and consequently letting in huge quantities of interstellar dust.
As this interstellar dust bombards our solar system, our sun would get continually hotter, and when the moment is right, make a quantum jump from its current status as a Class G yellow star into a Class F yellow-white star. Rather than obliterating the solar system in the process, however, a gravitational displacement would follow, in which the earth and other planets would be pushed out to further orbital regions. This displacement would however create a change in the vibrational frequency of earth’s matter. Just as the sun begins to enter a higher vibrational cycle of its own evolution, so would the earth and all life upon the earth shift into a different dimension, or density of vibration.
This quantum shift from a yellow star to a yellow-white star would be accompanied by intense flashes of light, and coronal mass ejections, followed by a pulse of darkness, as the sun stabilized into its new evolutionary state. Daniel conjectures that this could be the basis of the Mayan prophecy of the ‘three days of darkness’.
If this theory is accurate, it would also provide a reasonable explanation for the Mayan prophecy of the ‘second sun’, which is often linked with the prophecy of ‘three days of darkness’. I would welcome further dialogue or correction on this theme. I would conjecture that the coronal mass ejections following such a change of state on our sun would be the mechanism for a reversal of magnetic polarity on the earth. As I explain in previous articles, this magnetic reversal would in turn lead to a profound shift in the collective consciousness of humanity and all life on the planet, as we unhook from the subconscious matrix of duality and separation, and reconnect with our higher-dimensional identity as creator beings. In this expanded version of the Mayan prophecy, however, we are not talking simply talking about a shift of consciousness on the earth but a new stage of evolution for the entire solar system.
Courtney Brown is the head of the Farsight Institute, and has trained many individuals in the art of ‘remote viewing’. In a recent article, he reports an experiment where his team of psychic researchers was given two different time periods to investigate. During the first of these time periods, centered around June 1, 2008, nothing significantly out of the ordinary was reported by any of them. However, as they remote viewed conditions on earth around June 1, 2013, roughly half of the remote viewers experienced visions of extremely cataclysmic shifts and changes.
This discovery was startling enough in itself. What struck me as equally startling, however, was the fact that the other half of these highly trained remote viewers experienced nothing too different from the ordinary. Why such an extreme difference in these two groups? Could it be that on some level of consciousness we are already beginning to experience a divergence in timelines, or dimensional frequencies?
In ordinary conditions and in our current state of consciousness, we experience reality in terms of what we call linear time. But what happens when we start crossing the boundary of the speed of light, or when we start experiencing higher dimensional frequencies, either through consciously developing our intuitive or shamanic gifts, or as a result of the sun’s entry into a new state of equilibrium? Is it possible that we might then collectively begin to experience a multiplicity of timelines? Is this beginning to happen now?
There has been a dichotomy in conventional physics where the laws pertaining to the world of subatomic particles are very different from the laws pertaining to large masses such as planets, suns and galaxies. Larson’s Reciprocal System is one of a set of emerging ‘unified field theories’ that seek to provide a bridge between the microcosmic and macrocosmic worlds. In doing so we also begin to see how the physical worlds and the spiritual worlds intersect, and how third dimensional worlds and higher dimensional worlds can be understood in terms of a single spectrum of reality. It provides a basis for unifying the physical and spiritual aspects of our own being.
Could it be that the global changes we are witnessing today in response to solar and galactic forces are moving us towards a ‘critical mass’ of awakening? Human beings are evolving to a stage where we can merge the creator aspects of our being, which exists in a realm beyond time and space, with the created aspects of our being, which are anchored within the framework of time, space and matter. As we consciously choose to merge the physical body with the light body we enter the parameters of this ‘unified field’ where all things become possible. We can choose then whether we wish to continue existing in an anti-evolutionary life-denying artificially constructed duality or align ourselves with the quantum evolutionary shift currently taking place in our solar system.
Perhaps this is what ‘year zero’ is ultimately about!

Questions to Ponder
- How do we test and evaluate what we hear as truth? Does the scenario outlined above resonate with your inner sense of truth?
- The Ojibwas have a saying, “Never confuse facts with truth”. Is it possible for scientific facts and mystical truth to coincide?
- Dewey B. Larson’s Reciprocal Systems theory is one of a number of recent TOE’s (Theory of Everything) that seeks to reconcile the laws of the universe on both macrocosmic and quantum levels. How would it change our concepts of human and planetary history if Dewey Larson’s theories were widely accepted as scientifically accurate?
- Does the scenario outlined above provide a reasonable explanation for the Mayan prophecies regarding the ‘three days of darkness’ or the ‘second sun’?
- Does the scenario outlined above provide a reasonable explanation for what many refer to as ‘dimensional shift’, or ‘ascension’?
2012 and the Emergence of Divine Light
by Kiara Windrider
February 21, 2013
What on Earth is going on? Amidst ecological ruin, financial collapse, political breakdowns, and social upheavals around the world, can we look for clear signs of optimism and hope?
It seems clear to me that if something does not radically change on our planet soon, we are doomed to go the way of the dinosaurs. Whether we go out with a big bang in some sort of cataclysmic event, or go out with a whimper slowly suffocating in our own wastes, may not make much of a difference.
Meanwhile, the Mayan calendar, which according to most scholars ends on December 21, 2012, continues to evoke all kinds of speculations. We are not so far away from this date. Will it come and go with no more impact than one day passing into another? Will the world suddenly end with a bang in one of several doomsday scenarios? Or could this date represent a birth passage, an initiation into a deeper planetary consciousness that could transform our perception of reality as we know it?
If so, then when and how does all this happen?
Amidst all the mysteries and controversies surrounding the Mayan calendar, we do know that it was a predictive calendar going back thousands of years, and that ancient timekeepers had set it up to measure galactic rather than solar cycles.
What is this galactic cycle being measured? Astrophysicist Paul LaViolette coined the phrase ‘galactic superwave’ to represent a pulse of high frequency cosmic and gamma ray particles emanating from the center of our galaxy. This pulse is like a galactic heartbeat, moving out in concentric waves travelling close to the speed of light, one major pulse every 10-15 thousand years, each one lasting for several hundreds of years.
While he does not explicitly equate this pulse with the Mayan calendar, I have come to believe that the end date of the Mayan calendar could well be referring to the next peak of this galactic superwave moving through our solar system.
Based on geological and mythological records pertaining to earlier cycles of this galactic superwave, we can predict that the next passage of this wave could have a very significant impact on our consciousness as well as on the physical body of our planet.
The last impact of this wave was approximately 12 or 13 thousand years ago, initiating a chain of circumstances that on a physical level precipitated enormous earth changes and eventually the sinking of an entire continent known in our mythologies as Atlantis.
This is certainly a scenario that could be repeated this time around. However, I do believe that we have collectively achieved a state of consciousness where another scenario becomes possible.
Sri Aurobindo, a highly evolved mystic and Indian freedom fighter, envisioned more than a hundred years ago the total metamorphosis of the human species in the very near future, preceded by the signs of apparent chaos that we are seeing all around us.
He referred to the descent of a ‘supramental light’ that would infiltrate our bodies and all systems on our planet, creating an entirely new species of humanity, and transforming the Earth.
The cycle of the ‘yugas’ expounded by the great Indian yogi, Sri Yukteswar, may also have to do with this periodic pulse of the galactic superwave. We are currently at the end of a Kali Yuga, awaiting the next passage of the galactic superwave to propel us into an imminent Age of Light.
What are the mechanics of this transformation? Geological records indicate that the most recent passage of the galactic superwave was associated with a collapsing of the Earth’s magnetic field, and perhaps even a polar reversal. In our own time, scientists report that the Earth’s magnetic field has experienced a sharp decline within the past 150 years, and continues to decrease exponentially.
How is this relevant to us? Our thoughts, feelings, memories, and identities are held within an electromagnetic field surrounding our physical bodies that we refer to as the ‘aura’. Our personal auras are directly linked with the electromagnetic fields of the Earth.
As the Earth’s magnetic field continues to collapse further, it could create a profound shift within our consciousness. Most of us experience ourselves as a fixed identity based in the past, separate from the rest of the universe. This is the fundamental cause of our dualistic perception of reality, the roots of aggression, greed, violence and fear. This could be soon be changing.
Along with the collapse of Earth’s magnetic fields, scientists are also predicting a quantum shift in the base harmonic frequency of matter as a result of this incoming superwave. All matter within our solar system is preparing for a frequency shift. As our bodies start vibrating to this higher frequency, new programs within our DNA could be activated, allowing us to resonantly anchor the frequencies of our soul.
The confluence of these two phenomena indicates that we are in the process of dissolving a personal identity based in separation and duality, while at the same time downloading the highly potent frequencies of our Higher Dimensional Self into our physical, emotional, and mental bodies. Sri Aurobindo saw that we would soon be living in bodies of ‘true matter’, collectively transmuting as a species from the ‘human human’ into the ‘divine human’, capable of experiencing the full potential of our divine self here on Earth!
Is it possible that the end date of the Mayan calendar represents the first large-scale impact of the galactic superwave into our solar system, activating a sudden and profound collective shift unlike anything we have seen before?
Many of us are already beginning to experience this shift. Our bodies are changing. We are going through extreme emotional roller coasters as subconscious fears come up for release. Our safe and familiar world is falling apart. We are literally losing our minds. Our linear flow of time is giving way to a multi-dimensional reality where the laws of nature no longer work the same way, where perceived limitations of time, space, matter and consciousness are dissolving. We are exploring the edges of what we once thought impossible.
The economic, political and social chaos we are currently experiencing in the outer world is also part of the process. Systems based in the old paradigm of greed and dominance are falling away, while new systems and understandings of the universe are evolving which resonate with the new energies coming in.
New technologies are being discovered to replace our dependence on power companies and oil. New systems of healing based on subtle energy fields are emerging to complement the current medical model. And we are discovering new ways to release subconscious fears and trauma from cellular memory in order to access and embody the multi-dimensional consciousness of our galactic selves!
For those on a spiritual journey, we are recognizing that it is not enough to briefly experience cosmic states of consciousness while leaving the body behind. We are being asked instead to transform the physical body by embodying this cosmic light into cellular consciousness, a process that changes our very DNA. Like a caterpillar transforming into a butterfly, we may well be preparing for the most profound genetic transformation in recent geological history.
This is an intense but exhilarating process, and has been part of my own exploration for many years. Some years ago, it led me to Deeksha, a hands-on transmission of cosmic light originating in India. More recently, and even more profoundly, it has led me to working with a morphogenetic field of divine light known as Ilahinoor, with roots in the mystery school traditions of ancient Egypt.
Linked also with ‘ascended masters’ such as Jesus, Babaji and St. Germaine, and with the multidimensional consciousness of whales and dolphins, Ilahinoor is an ancient and universal morphogenetic field designed to prepare the physical body for merging with the light body.
Not requiring the mediation of any outside force, this happens directly through the higher self. As the intelligence within the body is activated through higher vibrational fields of incoming cosmic light, deep subconscious fears and traumas are released from cellular memory, allowing us to feel and express the unified consciousness of our multidimensional self.
The time has come wherein each of us must recognize ourselves as part of a bigger whole, and each of us take responsibility for our part in the collective transformation of humanity and the Earth. My recent book, Journey into Forever: Surfing into 2012 and Beyond, goes into a more detailed exploration of these themes. Free downloads, as well as pre-publication copies, are available through my website, www.ilahinoor.net, which also includes a vast library of articles on various themes of planetary awakening.

Reflections on Enlightenment
By Kiara Windrider
May 22, 2014
“There is an aspect of ourselves that is beyond space and time, which we might refer to as The Universe, or Creator. There also seems to be an aspect of ourselves that is constructed within multiple dimensions of time and space, which we might refer to as Creation. Creator and Creation co-exist in a continuous dance of discovery and exploration. Our destiny is to touch both these realms, embrace them both within our being, and become co-creators of a new Earth.”
I understand that everything is consciousness and that in consciousness there is no separation. Why then did consciousness create the physical worlds if our descent into matter has led to such an extreme state of separation? Is it possible to end this separation such that matter and spirit can be unified? Is there such a thing as collective enlightenment?
To our physical senses, the material world appears to unfold in dimensions of time and space, appears to be composed of objects separate from each other, appears to be distinct from the non-physical or spiritual planes. Some people refer to the material plane as maya or illusion. But what if the great illusion is not the material plane itself but the idea that the material is separate from the spiritual?
The physical body seems to operate as a separate entity, but this is not so much the reality of the body as an illusion created within the mind. The function of this incredible evolution we call mind is to create a perception of innumerable events connected together in linear time, which creates the illusion that the One has divided into many, which in turn creates a field of body-mind consciousness which holds these events together in memory as a personal ego. Unfortunately, with the birth of this personal ego also came a sense of separation. Our identification with ‘me’ in here as separate from the ‘world’ out there has led us inevitably to the experience of suffering, trauma, victimhood, anxiety, lovelessness, fear, aggression, limitation, and a million and one variations of the human story.
But what if our human evolution is still incomplete? What if the structure of mind is continuing to evolve to a point where all of humanity can experience the full range of consciousness, including the physical dimensions, without reference to a separate ego? What if nature is sparking this awakening within an increasing number of human beings until we reach a critical mass in which all humanity can awaken together?
What would it mean for infinite consciousness to fully incarnate within matter? What happens when the veil of illusion is dissolved and creator recognizes itself within the face of all creation? It could be that as higher functions of the mind continue to evolve within the human species, we would inevitably move towards a collective awakening where the sense of personal ego drops away completely. The mental ego simply dissolves into the field of oneness, the experience of separation dissolves into the consciousness of unity, and we experience the diversity of creation as a single unified organism.
We are creator consciousness dreaming ourselves awake within creation. As we dream, so it is.
Kiara Windrider, MA, is a psychotherapist and author, whose great passion has been to investigate the journey of human evolution in context of long-range cycles of time. His enquiry has led him to believe that quantum shifts of evolutionary consciousness are linked with recurring phenomena such as galactic superwaves, magnetic field reversals, and intelligent genetic mutations, and that we could be passing through one such evolutionary gateway right now. His books, Year Zero: Time of the Great Shift, and Ilahinoor: Awakening the Divine Human, explore these themes, and offer a pathway towards a collective planetary awakening. He has been greatly influenced by the work of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother, and their pioneering investigations into the evolution of mind and the descent of supramental consciousness into the field of matter. His own work with the Ilahinoor field reflects this awareness, and offers a simple practice for bypassing the control of the subconscious ‘matrix’, and experiencing ourselves directly as the Self.

Sri Aurobindo and Human Evolution
August 24, 2014
By Kiara Windrider
As the article on magnetic reversal and evolutionary leaps implies, galactic superwaves could be the driver of evolutionary cycles. Each galactic pulse has both a physical aspect as well as a spiritual aspect. Although we cannot control events on a physical level, we can certainly co-create alternative realities as we connect with the consciousness of this galactic pulse.
Astrophysicist Paul LaViolette tells us that a major galactic superwave may be on its way. There are physical effects of the galactic heartbeat, focused through the galactic superwave phenomenon. There are also spiritual aspects of this galactic heartbeat, which I would like to consider now, starting with the work of one of the greatest visionaries of the past century, Sri Aurobindo.
Near the beginning of the twentieth century the great Indian freedom fighter and yogi-sage, Sri Aurobindo, began to express a truth that had not been expressed before. In his high states of divine union he saw that the time had come for a new stage in the evolution of mankind. He saw that the divine was to manifest right here on Earth and that the time for this divine emergence into Earth life was now. He spoke of heaven descending to Earth, even as Earth experienced a breakdown due to the intrinsic resistance held within her material body towards this descent.
Sri Aurobindo was joined in Pondicherry, India, by a French mystic, Mirra Alfassa, who later became known as the Mother, or Le Mere. Together they embarked on a journey of intensive cellular and collective transformation that is very relevant to the colossal uncertainties we face today.
Sri Aurobindo saw that the divine force permeates all matter, and that all matter therefore has a force of consciousness. The process of the divine spirit descending down into matter is called involution. The process by which the divine ascends upwards out of matter is called evolution.
According to Sri Aurobindo, humanity has reached a stage where these two events are occurring simultaneously. He foresaw that we would soon experience a descent of what he called supramental consciousness that would entirely change everything on Earth. The term supramental refers to a unified state of being from a level of consciousness that has not yet been experienced on Earth.
Does this supramental descent relate to the evolutionary effects of the next incoming galactic superwave?
“Man’s greatness is not in what he is,” said Sri Aurobindo, “but in what he makes possible. An immortal soul is somewhere within him, even if seldom active in most people, while an eternal spirit overshadows him, even if obstructed from descent by the hard lid of his constructed personality. There is a great divine plan in motion, even if the evidence of the outer senses seems to contradict it.”1
Our evolution is far from complete. As Sri Aurobindo states, “Man is a transitional being; he is not final. The step from man to superman is the most important achievement of Earth’s evolution. It is inevitable because it is at once the intention of the inner spirit and the logic of Nature’s process.”2
Evolution leaped far forward with the origins of Life, and later with the emergence of Mind. According to Sri Aurobindo, we are now at the threshold of another leap, even more momentous, as we prepare for the emergence of the Supermind. He speaks about four stages in human evolution.
The first of these, briefly, is the animal human, which includes most of humanity today – rational beings possessing an individualized soul, but largely obstructed from contacting and merging with it. Our behaviors stem primarily from our instincts. Biological survival, along with the propagation of the species, is the primary goal.
Next is the human human, a species that is spontaneously coming to birth under the influence of an ever-expanding supramental field, a being that is starting to merge and live from soul-consciousness rather than mind-consciousness. Anyone on a quest for deeper meaning and wholeness is probably at this stage of evolution.
The third stage is the divine human, a stage we are collectively moving towards in this time of global transformation. We will still inhabit a material physical body, but will be in possession of the Mind of Light, which is supramental consciousness that has just begun to merge with cellular consciousness.
Finally comes the supramental human, our ultimate goal as a species—divinity incarnated fully within the realms of matter. The unity of matter and spirit is to be fully realized upon Earth. The higher-dimensional light body would be merged into the physical body, and the body itself would be raised in frequency to what Sri Aurobindo referred to as true matter.
This subtle physical substance, this true matter, is at the same time much more concrete than the physical world, more real, more complete, and much more powerful than the physical we are familiar with. It exists independently from physical matter, yet permeates all matter.
Within the field of true matter, penned the Mother in her diaries, the Supramental Force “would progressively be able to express unity in diversity instead of division and limitation, truth instead of falsehood, freedom instead of tyranny, goodwill instead of jealousy, love instead of hatred, and immortality instead of death.”3
We would transcend limitations of time, space, and matter, incarnating all the vast possibilities of our souls. We would travel instantaneously in both space and time. We would shape shift through forms and dimensions as we choose. We would express the love, wisdom and power of the Creator in bodies of Creation.
The great work of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother was in bringing supramental consciousness down into the cellular consciousness of their own bodies. The Mother states that the supramental realms were first unified into her cellular body on February 29, 1956. The Dream that is already present in the Supramental worlds was seeded into material consciousness at that time.
Since all matter is vibrationally connected, this meant that the supramental consciousness was simultaneously brought into the morphogenetic fields of the Earth, awaiting the moment when it would flower into full manifestation in the collective field of matter.
From the perspective of science, one effect of an incoming galactic superwave would be the bombardment of our solar system with cosmic dust as the protective magnetic shield around our solar system is breached due to electro-charge from cosmic and gamma ray particles. As a consequence, the Sun would eventually undergo a radical shift in its base harmonic frequency, which would instantly ripple outwards, resulting in an increase in the base harmonic frequency of all matter within our Solar System. Could it be that the true matter that Sri Aurobindo refers to is somehow related to this quantum jump in the frequency of matter, quickening our bodies so we are more receptive to the frequencies of our souls?
In his epic poem, Savitri, Sri Aurobindo points toward what is yet to come:
A few shall see what none yet understand
God shall grow up while the wise men talk and sleep
For man shall not know the coming till its hour
And belief shall be not till the work is done.
The world is preparing for a big change
And the responsibility to bring this about lies with us.
Whether we like it or not:
The frontiers of ignorance shall recede,
More and more souls shall enter into light . . .
Nature shall live to manifest the secrets of God,
Spirit shall take up the human play,
And earthly life become the life divine.
The Three Days of Darkness
By Kiara Windrider
Aug 28, 2014
All life is held and sustained by the magnetic fields of the Earth. Our thoughts, feelings and memories are supported by magnetic fields. Our physical bodies are linked with the etheric, astral and causal bodies through these same magnetic fields. Our sense of human identity could not exist without reference to these magnetic fields.
Scientists tell us that the magnetic fields of the Earth have been steadily weakening. There has been a strong exponential decline in recent years. Over the past two thousand years the magnetic field strength has dropped by roughly 50%. A hundred years ago, it was decreasing at the rate of 5% every hundred years. And now, according to the European Space Agency, who recently sent up an array of 3 satellites to specifically measure these magnetic fields, it is falling at the rate of 5% every decade, much faster than anyone had thought.
Scientists also tell us that the magnetic poles of the Earth reverse periodically. Although they differ about what the exact periodicity may be, science researchers such as Robert Felix present evidence that this could be linked with the Milankovitch Cycles, and that they undergo either a full reversal or partial excursion every 11,500 years. Furthermore, these reversals of the Earth’s magnetic field seem to be linked with genetic mutations and evolutionary leaps.
Interestingly, the last reversal took place about 11,500 years ago, which means the next reversal could take place anytime now. A reversal generally takes place when the magnetic fields of the Earth drop to about 15% of its original field strength. At the rate of current exponential collapse this could well happen within the next decade or two!
The Toltecs tell us that we are currently in the Fifth Sun, characterized by separation and duality. They also say a Sixth Sun, characterized by unity consciousness, is now dawning. They say this Sixth Sun first made its presence felt in 1991 and that we are currently being influenced by it birth passage, culminating in its full manifestation by the year 2021 AD. The Mayas refer to this passage between the worlds as the ‘three days of darkness’, heralding the dawning of a new species of humanity — homo luminous.
There is growing evidence that the last phase of a magnetic field collapse usually takes place very quickly, in the space of a few hours or days, following which the magnetic field reorganizes itself with reversed polarity. As I explore our current understanding of these discoveries in the context of ancient prophecies and calendar systems, it appears that these three days of darkness could well be referring to this last phase of the Earth’s magnetic field collapse and reversal, corresponding to the dawning of the Sixth Sun.
What can we expect to happen in these three days of darkness? Because our bodies and all life on Earth are linked together through magnetic fields, it seems probable that as these begin to de-link during the reversal process, our normal perceptions of reality would cease to function. Our sense of personal identity is based on the continuity of thoughts, feelings and memories. What would happen as the magnetic fields collapse and this continuity is broken?
There is a matrix of human conditioning that we are plugged into the moment we take incarnation on Earth. Like all fields, this collective matrix is electromagnetic in nature. Our conditioning over the past few cycles in this particular matrix has become increasingly programmed by rigid expressions of fear, greed and violence, creating an escalating veil of separation and duality that the ancient Vedic seers referred to as Maya.
I have begun to suspect that as we make the transition through the three days of darkness, this entire electromagnetic matrix of Maya would begin to disintegrate, allowing us to recalibrate our thoughts and perceptions in accordance with our innermost identities. This is why some mystical traditions have stated that these times of magnetic reversal are the most auspicious times to be on Earth.
My own sense is that although most humans will fall into a deep sleep or coma during this transition, those who can prepare themselves by unifying their physical body with their subtle light bodies, will be enabled to journey through these three days of darkness with full awareness, thus serving as a bridge between the current consensus of reality and the infinite potential available to us from the highest levels of creation. We can choose to collaborate with the forces of galactic creation to birth a new evolution on Earth.
Contrary to Darwin’s hypothesis, many biologists today have come to the realization that evolution does not happen in a ‘slow and stately’ manner but rather in swift and dramatic leaps directly linked with magnetic reversals. As the magnetic field collapses we lose the magnetic shield that protects us from storms of cosmic radiation constantly moving through interplanetary space. Thus, during this brief period of collapse and reversal which the Mayas referred to as the days of darkness, we generally experience highly amplified levels of cosmic radioactivity raining down upon the Earth, creating a ripple of biological extinctions as well as mutations across the planet.
Earlier cycles of magnetic reversal were accompanied by peaks in earthquake and volcanic activity, which created widespread and often cataclysmic changes on the planet. In the cycle immediately prior to our own, we even experienced a displacement of crustal plates, which led to the sinking and rising of entire continents.
I believe that the degree of catastrophic change experienced during a magnetic reversal has to do with the collective consciousness existing on the planet during that time. I do feel that there is a unified field of light currently anchored within the higher fields of Gaia that could help make this current transition relatively smooth. But we must remember that we have evolved to a stage now where we are no longer simply passive observers in a random chain of events.
In the grand plan of planetary evolution, humans are the nervous system of Gaia, conduits between galactic forces and the living intelligence of the earth. We are taking our place now as conscious co-creators for a new stage of evolution. To the extent that we are able to align ourselves with cosmic and galactic forces, allowing these fields of intelligence to channel through our physical bodies, we become conscious participants in the evolutionary process.
Astrophysicist Paul LaViolette refers to a pulse of galactic superwaves emanating from the core of our galaxy and periodically moving through our solar system, carrying with it new waves of creative potential. These are intelligent fields of light with the power to inform and direct new cycles of evolution on Earth.
Evolution and involution are two expressions of the same movement. The evolution of life on earth has to do with a long series of genetic mutations within the matrix of Gaia’s consciousness. Meanwhile, the Self is on a journey of awakening to itself within the consciousness of matter. As we refine our nervous systems, we become a bridge between the worlds.
The radioactivity unleashed during the upcoming magnetic reversal could then be harmonized within the consciousness of Gaia towards the manifestation of an entirely new wave of biological creation. These three days of darkness would become an unprecedented opportunity for creator consciousness to incarnate into matter. A next stage of human evolution would be initiated, the homo luminous or divine human. To the extent that we can remain conscious during the magnetic reversal, this might even allow a certain number of individuals to move into a further stage of evolution which the Indian seer, Sri Aurobindo, referred to as the supramental human.
There is a further bit of information that i find interesting in this context. When a person dies and their heart stops, the magnetic field normally generated by the heart collapses. As this heart-generated magnetic field collapses, a substance known as DMT is spontaneously generated within the pineal gland, which in turn opens a doorway between worlds so that the person can exit their physical body and move into subtler levels of existence. DMT is also generated during the birth process, as the newly incarnating soul moves out from the womb into a larger matrix of life.
DMT is the same substance contained in certain plant medicines such as ayahuasca, which is used by shamans to access alternate worlds and dimensions of existence. Scientists tell us that the production of DMT is also accelerated during the weakening or collapse of the earth’s magnetic fields. If the experience of taking DMT opens up doorways between dimensions, how would it be for the entire collective consciousness of mankind to experience this activation simultaneously, opening up doorways between worlds while at the same time experiencing the massive inflow of interplanetary radioactivity?
There are neural receptors in the brain known as cannabinoid receptors. It has been discovered that when these receptor sites become saturated by substances such as DMT, a person becomes immune to the ill effects of nuclear radiation. Is this a possible mechanism for transmuting towards a new species, such that our DNA can mutate positively under the direction of our highest awareness and also a higher planetary or galactic intelligence?
It seems to me that as we collectively pass through a magnetic reversal, we would be enabled to release the programming held within the subconscious matrix of human history. As we release old identities based on fear and illusion, we pierce through the veils of Maya and take our place as Divine Humans, wide-browed Creators playing within the field of our own creation, expressing the full potential of our vast multidimensional presence here on Earth.
We are midwives for a new wave of creation. What kind of world do we wish to create?

Magnetic Reversals and Evolutionary Leaps
By Kiara Windrider
September 1, 2014
All planetary life is held and sustained by the magnetic fields of the Earth. Our thoughts, feelings and memories are supported by magnetic fields. Our physical bodies are linked with etheric, astral and causal bodies through these same magnetic fields. Our memories of the past and even our sense of human identity could not exist without reference to these magnetic fields. Our entire collective history is recorded within subconscious fields of memory, sometimes known as the akashic records, which direct and influence our evolutionary journey as a species.
Scientists tell us that the magnetic fields of the Earth has weakened by almost half over the past few thousand years. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, this decline has accelerated during the past 400 years, and continues to decline exponentially in recent times. About 10% of this decline took place between the early 1800’s and the year 2000, at the rate of roughly 5% per century. And now, according to the European Space Agency, who recently sent up an array of 3 satellites to specifically measure these magnetic fields, it is falling at the rate of 5% each decade, much faster than anyone had imagined.
Not only is the geomagnetic field of the earth weakening, but also the poles have been drifting into new positions at a rapidly accelerating pace. The current movement of the north magnetic pole is towards Siberia at the incredible speed of approximately 50 kilometers a year. Ben Davidson and Mitch Battros provide graphic evidence for this fascinating global phenomenon in their website, Magneticreversal.org.
From their study of earlier cycles of history, scientists across the globe are coming to recognize that this phenomenon of magnetic decline is usually followed by a sudden reversal of magnetic polarity, where north becomes south and south becomes north. This reversal is generally preceded by a period of time when the north-south magnetic axis begins to break down into two or three separate magnetic axes, which is currently happening. Although there is still debate about what the exact periodicity of these reversals might be, science researcher Robert Felix presents evidence that this could be linked with so-called Milankovitch cycles and could be as short as 11,500 years or 12,000 years (See Evolutionaryleaps.com).
Furthermore, we are told that the entire process of reversal could take place within a single human lifetime, and that once the fields begin to collapse the final phase of reversal could happen within a matter of hours or days (See my earlier book, Year Zero: Time of the Great Shift).
Astrophysicist Paul LaViolette links the periodicity of magnetic reversals on earth with recurring bursts of galactic superwaves that emanate as pulses of cosmic and gamma rays from the center of our galaxy every 10-14 thousand years. As these superluminal bursts of cosmic rays pass through our solar system, it generates a sequence of events within our sun, which then impacts the magnetic fields of all planets in our solar system, including the earth. (See Etheric.com).
Scientific as well as historical research indicates that the most recent magnetic reversal took place approximately 11,500 years ago, which leads to the possibility that the next reversal could take place anytime now. A reversal generally takes place when the magnetic fields of the earth drop down to about 15% or 20% of their original field strength, simultaneous with strong incoming flares from the sun. At the rate of current exponential collapse, this could well happen within a decade or two!
So what does all this mean for humanity and the earth? Many of us have been experiencing an increasing sense of disorientation and chaos in our emotional, mental and physical bodies. We have been experiencing intense emotional upheavals, breakdowns of the nervous and immune systems, loss of memory, and distortion of personal identity, often accompanied by powerful kundalini activations and psychic awakenings, all of which is reflected in our collective psyche as well.
About seven years ago I had journeyed to Guatemala with Maya priests, Norbert and Christina Muigg, to seek out Don Alejandro Cirilo, head of the Mayan Council of Elders. I was curious about what many had been saying about the Mayan calendar as a map of human consciousness, and what some had been referring to as the end of the Mayan calendar in the year 2012.
Don Cirilo expressed some displeasure that many New Age researchers had been using the Mayan teachings as a springboard for speculations that had nothing to do with the Mayan calendar or tradition. He cautioned us not to get too caught up in doomsday scenarios or linear dates, and shared that their most important prophecy had to do with a period known to them as the three days of darkness, during which a great shift would take place within the consciousness of humanity.
He emphasized that this was not something to be afraid of, but something which we have eagerly awaited for many thousands of years. These three days referred to a tunnel between the worlds, culminating in the birth of a new species of humanity, homo luminous.
Meanwhile, studies of volcanic eruptions during times of magnetic reversal indicate that the last phase of a magnetic field collapse usually happens very quickly, in the space of a few hours or days, following which the magnetic field re-organizes itself with reversed polarity. As I explore our current understanding of these discoveries in the context of ancient prophecies and calendar systems, it appears that these three days of darkness that the Mayas refer to could well be referring to this last phase of the Earth’s magnetic field collapse and reversal, corresponding also to the dawning of the Sixth Sun in Toltec and Inka prophecy.
If so, what might we expect might happen during these three days of darkness? If our subtle bodies are linked together through magnetic fields what would happen as these magnetic fields begin to collapse and reorient? If our sense of identity is based on a continuity of thoughts, feelings and memories anchored within the magnetic fields of the earth, what would happen as these fields of memory temporarily unraveled? If our senses and perceptions of reality are based on an alignment between our subtle bodies, which are in turn anchored to the magnetic fields of the earth, how would this change our experience of the world around and within us?
There is a matrix of collective human conditioning that each of us plugs into the moment we take incarnation on this planet. Like all fields, this matrix is electromagnetic in nature. Over the past few cycles of human history this matrix has become programmed by rigid expressions of greed, violence and fear, creating a collective veil of separation and duality that the ancient Vedic seers referred to as maya.
There is however a subtler source of identity that most of us are not always in touch with, which we might refer to as the soul. This is an identity that goes deeper than our experience of the world in any given incarnation, and has to do with a continuity of memory and experience throughout our vast sojourns within a universe of time and space.
Is it possible that as we make the transition through the three days of darkness that this entire electromagnetic matrix of maya could become temporarily disengaged, allowing us to recalibrate our identities in according with the multi-dimensional realms of the soul? Is this why some mystical traditions have stated that for the advanced soul these times of magnetic reversal are the most auspicious times to be on Earth?
My own sense is that although most humans may end up falling ‘asleep’ during this transition, those who can prepare themselves by unifying their physical body with their subtle light bodies, will be enabled to journey through these three days of darkness with full awareness, thus serving as a bridge between the current consensus of reality and the infinite potential available to us from the highest levels of creation. We can choose to collaborate with the forces of galactic creation to birth a new evolution on Earth.
Contrary to Darwin’s hypothesis, many biologists today have come to the realization that evolution does not happen in a ‘slow and stately’ manner but rather in swift and dramatic leaps directly linked with magnetic reversals.
What is the mechanism behind these evolutionary leaps? The magnetic field of the earth not only organizes life on earth but also acts as a shield against storms of cosmic radiation constantly moving through interplanetary space. When the magnetic fields of the earth collapse, so does this magnetic shielding. In the brief period of time surrounding a magnetic reversal, highly amplified levels of cosmic radioactivity pour down through our unprotected atmospheric belts, creating a ripple of biological mutations across the earth, skies and seas. Many species go extinct and entirely new species are birthed, all in the space of a single generation.
Earlier cycles of magnetic reversal were accompanied by peaks in earthquake and volcanic activity, which created widespread and often cataclysmic changes on the planet. In the cycle immediately prior to our own, we also experienced a displacement of crustal plates, which led to the sinking and rising of entire continents.
So what is our own role within these evolutionary times?
Many esoteric traditions correlate the degree of catastrophic change experienced during a magnetic reversal with the collective consciousness existing on the planet during that time. James Lovelock, an English biologist, refers to the Earth as a living conscious biological organism, and hypothesizes that humans are perhaps the nervous system of this larger organism, which he refers to as Gaia.
Could it be that our role is to be conduits between galactic forces and the living intelligence of Gaia? Is there a unified field of intelligence currently anchored within the higher fields of Gaia that can be accessed in order to make this transition smoother and easier? Are there enough human beings on this planet who have evolved to a stage of consciousness where we can collectively direct our own evolutionary course?
Evolution and involution are two expressions of the same movement. The evolution of life on earth has to do with a long series of genetic mutations within the matrix of Gaia’s evolving consciousness. Meanwhile, the Self is on a journey of involution, awakening to itself within the consciousness of matter. As we refine our nervous systems, we become a bridge between the worlds. The radioactivity unleashed during a magnetic reversal could then be harmonized within the consciousness of Gaia towards the manifestation of an entirely new wave of biological creation.
There is a new electromagnetic matrix that many of us are becoming aware of at this time. It is an evolutionary matrix that carries informational codes for activating new levels of genetic potential. Over a hundred years ago, the great mystic seer Sri Aurobindo referred to a supramental descent soon to take place, where unified fields of light would begin to penetrate the very heart of matter, resulting in tremendous leaps of evolutionary potential and the creation of entire new species on earth, including a new species of humanity which he referred to as the divine human.
The three days of darkness could be thus be an unprecedented opportunity for creator consciousness to incarnate into matter. This could initiate the next stage of our evolution as the homo luminous or divine human. To the extent that we can remain conscious during the magnetic reversal, it might even allow a certain number of individuals to evolve into a further stage of evolution that Sri Aurobindo referred to as the supramental human.
What would be the mechanism for such a process?
Scientists tell us that under certain conditions the pineal gland produces massive amounts of DMT, which is the same substance contained in plant medicines such as ayahuasca, used by shamans for accessing alternate worlds or dimensions. When a person dies and their heart stops, the magnetic field normally generated by the heart collapses. As this heart-generated magnetic field collapses, DMT is spontaneously generated within the pineal gland, which in turn opens a doorway between worlds so that the person can exit their physical body and move into subtler levels of existence. DMT is also produced in large quantities during the passage of birth.
This same DMT is also produced by the pineal gland when the earth’s magnetic field weakens or collapses. During such an event, the spike in DMT experienced on a collective level could well open up dimensional doorways between the worlds. Could we use this moment to dissolve the illusory matrix of suffering, duality and fear, and consciously choose a different reality?
As we have seen, magnetic reversals are also associated with a massive increase in cosmic radioactivity. Radioactivity causes mutations, and radioactive mutations are generally harmful to biological life. Yet, there are certain receptors in the brain, known as cannabinoid receptors, which respond to the presence of DMT by rendering a person immune to the ill effects of nuclear radiation.
Is it possible that during a magnetic reversal these receptors would become activated by the collective activation of DMT, such that our DNA could mutate positively under the direction of a higher planetary or galactic intelligence? Is this the mechanism for how evolution makes quantum shifts during magnetic reversals so that an entirely new range of species could be created within a single generation?
To the extent that we realize ourselves as active creators rather than passive observers, the radioactivity unleashed during a magnetic reversal can be directed with conscious intent towards the birth of a new multi-dimensional species of humanity. Each reversal is an evolutionary reset.
As we pass through the three days of darkness, we can dissolve the programming held within the subconscious matrix of human history, release old identities based on fear and illusion, pierce through the veils of maya that keep us in ignorance of our true Self, and take our place as divine humans, wide-browed creators playing within the field of our own creation, expressing our highest potential and creativity as multidimensional beings of light!
We are midwives, along with the planetary consciousness known as Gaia, for a new wave of creation. What kind of world do we wish to create?

The term ‘evolution’ is rapidly becoming a new buzzword in scientific as well as spiritual circles. But what does it really mean?
Is it merely a Darwininan phenomenon operating through accidental permutations of slow and gradual genetic mutations through natural selection? Is it a force within matter that blindly pushes life forward into a higher spiral of expression? Is there a field of intelligence beyond matter which is continually involuting into matter as matter simultaneously evolves towards this higher intelligence?
Are we even asking the right questions?
I believe that as long as we are approaching this question from a dualistic framework where mind, matter and consciousness are held separate from each other, any response to this question will be limited and unsatisfactory. We are conditioned to experience objects in nature, earth, universe, and everything ‘outside’ of ourselves as ‘separate’ from ourselves.
It is a perception of reality that we don’t question. It is simply the way things are. Matter is the foundation of life and has a reality of its own, derived somehow from the Big Bang of original creation. From this Matter-ialist perspective, where all objects and organisms have a life and reality that is fixed, dense and separate from the rest of creation, Mind slowly evolved within Matter during a long course of biological mutations, and Consciousness slowly evolved within Mind. And now somehow we have achieved a pinnacle of evolution where humans can reflect upon the nature of consciousness as masters of creation, imagining that we hold the power to direct the next stage of our own evolution.
But is this perception of reality accurate? What if we reversed this equation? What if Consciousness is primary in the field of Existence? What if Mind derives from Consciousness, and Matter derives from Mind?
Copernicus created a revolution in human thought when he theorized that it was the earth that circled around the sun and not the other way around. Could we be on the verge of a similar revolution in human consciousness as we assimilate the implications of such a radical change of perspective?
This perspective is not new. Mystics and sages across the ages in many parts of the world have understood this profound secret, known by the Vedic seers as advaita, or non-duality. Matter and consciousness are not separate. Me and you are not separate. There is only one fundamental reality in all of existence. It is only a lens of the mind that creates the illusion of separation.
This was not merely seen as a spiritual truth, but was a practical understanding which influenced the arts, sciences and technologies of many ancient civilizations in previous cycles of time. Today it seems that our scientists are leading the way back. Quantum physics has succeeded in deconstructing the illusion of matter. Many physicists today are becoming convinced that there are no fundamental building blocks of matter, that matter and energy both find their origins in a subquantum kinetic vacuum that goes beyond our current understandings of time space and creation itself. The properties of this kinetic vacuum are the same properties that the early Indian sages attributed to the primal field that exists beyond time space and creation, the field of Consciousness that holds all things as potential within Itself, known to the sages as Sat-Chit-Ananda.
This primal universal field, reflecting within and beyond all things, is that from which all things derive their existence. Like a deep ocean creating ripples and waves upon its own surface, it manifests itself as ripples of matter and energy that are constantly appearing and disappearing in a cosmic dance of creation and dissolution. The physical universe emerges from within this dance like a string of pearls where it is said that each pearl reflects every other pearl, contains every other pearl, and is every other pearl.
The medium through which this dance of creation takes place is the Mind, sometimes known as Ishwara or Maya, of which the human mind is but a fractional and holographic reflection.
So we have here the vast ocean of Consciousness, of which the visible known universe is a tiny fraction; we have ripples of Matter along the surface of this ocean, manifesting as endless constellations of stars, galaxies, atoms and organisms; and we have the lens of Mind which allows us to observe this distinction and participate within this grand illusion of creation as if it were real in itself.
As we observed earlier, the nature of Mind as it currently functions within the human organism is inherently dualistic, but nevertheless extremely powerful. Within this dualistic perception we have conditioned ourselves to believe that our existence as separate individuals is real in itself, that evolution shapes itself through blind chance, and that all of history is attached to a linear timeline. As we believe, so it is. The power of rational mind has created a matrix of reality that we believe to be real, and which now pervades the entire fabric of human history.
As we continue to act out our belief in separate existence, we have come close to annihilating ourselves and our planetary ecosystem in the dark dance of greed, insecurity and fear that inevitably result from this mindset. If this quality of Mind were the only tool we had to perceive and create external reality we are surely lost as a planetary culture. Whether we go out in a blaze of nuclear glory or a whimper of chemical asphyxiation is not important. Evolution has reached a point of stalemate where we cannot turn the clock back, yet remain unable to solve our mushrooming problems as we move ahead.
But what if there is a new evolution that can now begin to express itself based on an entirely different quality of Mind? If we go back to the model of reality where Consciousness is primary and Material Reality is created as the product of the Mind, would our experience of reality change according to what quality of Mind we are capable of manifesting?
As experienced in his own states of yogic contemplation the great Indian seer Sri Aurobindo speaks of a next level of mind that we are capable of harnessing now. He referred to this as the Supramental Mind. While our current quality of Mind provides a lens for Infinite Consciousness to experience itself in Matter in dualistic terms, the Supramental Mind allows Infinite Consciousness to experience itself within Matter while maintaining the awareness of primal unity.
As long as we are bound to the conditioning of the rational mind we will continue to experience ourselves as trapped within the collective matrix of duality. We are victims in a long chain of cause and effect, and too weak and powerless to extricate ourselves from it. We are insignificant pawns in a game where the laws of competition and survival of the fittest override the codes of co-operation, compassion, integrity and sovereignty.
However, as we open to the evolutionary possibilities of the supramental mind, this changes quickly and dramatically. We experience ourselves as infinite, powerful and creative beings lovingly creating a new earthly paradise based on the principles of harmony and beauty. I am not separate from my neighbour and therefore am no longer subject to the need to fear, betray or control anybody else. Just like each cell in the body works for the benefit of the whole, I find my unique gift and express it to support the whole while being equally supported by the whole.
What this means on the human level is that we are not blinded anymore by the illusion of separateness and duality that veils us from the essential unity underlying all life and all things. We discover that our highest good is also the highest good of the planet; we find that earth is home for all of life, and that we cannot misuse her resources to benefit just a few. We realize that our highest joy is to serve all life to the best of our ability, and that who we are is not simply an outer physical shell but the infinitely beautiful stream of all existence flowing through our open hearts, minds and bodies.
In other words, we discover that the Self in its role as creator becomes visible within bodies of creation. Sparks of divinity incarnate within the body as matter awakens to subtle realms of uncreated light. Subtle senses open within expanded perceptions of reality, breaking our hypnotic conditioning of a fixed reality ‘out there’, and flowing through multiple dimensions of time, space and existence.
As the supramental mind replaces our current dualistic mind, all evolution becomes a conscious dance of expression. A new species of humans serve their function as the nervous system of a much larger organism that we might call Gaia, a biological collective that includes all life on earth and even far beyond.
Within this biological collective, creative manifestation and joyful expression takes place in a constant act of new creation. The human species, whom Sri Aurobindo referred to as wide browed creators of eternity, take their place within the web of all creation as sun-eyed caretakers and architects of a new and marvellous dawn.
As we perceive, so it is. The act of changing our perceptions of reality changes reality itself, since reality is not independent from the one perceiving it. This is especially true when we are talking about the supramental quality of mind. Since the supramental force is birthed from the same space where the dance of creation happens, new realities can instantaneously be projected out through the lens of supramental vision.
This shift from rational mind to supramental mind is an evolutionary choice. Sri Aurobindo believed that it has already been made in wider fields of existence, and is rapidly being manifested within the field of matter. We can choose to be active pioneers in the embodiment of this new mind. It is not an external task, however, but needs to be accomplished within our own bodies, trusting and following the impulse striving to birth itself deep within the cellular mind.
‘Tat twam asi’, said the ancient vedic seers. ‘That I Am’. This is the realization sometimes referred to as enlightenment, the awareness that there is a single consciousness pervading all things, and this consciousness is not separate from what I am. The rational mind cannot be expected to understand this. The supramental understands nothing but this.
And from this arises the foundation for a new earth.

“We shall not cease from exploration. And the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started. And know that place for the first time” – T.S Elliot (Little Gidding)
The human mind is designed for complexity. We compare, judge, discriminate, analyze, interpret, divide and subdivide everything from writing down this simple sentence to discovering the meaning of life and the universe. The mind is a beautiful tool for learning to embody ourselves in human incarnation, but we have identified with the mind, thinking that this mind is the lens to discovering who we are. And the more we have identified with the mind the more complex our lives have become, and the less we can be present to the profound simplicity and beauty of each spontaneous moment.
We assume we are a body-mind-personality complex. We are born and then we die. We have a name and we create a history, we possess thoughts, feelings and memories. We think we are real, in the sense that this entity that we call by name is permanent, at least until we die.
We also assume we are separate from the rest of the world, other objects, other people, nature, the universe, God. We struggle to find our place in this complex world, struggle with ourselves and our inner conflicts, struggle for meaning and purpose so we can feel worthy, happy and loved.
We get tired and exhausted from this endless struggle, wondering why it is we have lost our spontaneity and joy. Some of us embark on a spiritual path and undertake a quest for the true self. We read all these fascinating stories of spiritual masters who have achieved a certain state of consciousness where they transcended the limitations of the world around us, a select few who have managed to escape the drab realities of an egoic world view and achieved a transcendent blissful unity with all of life, creation and the universe.
We are told in these stories that the world is not real in itself, that who we think we are is an illusion, and that the only thing that is real is the Self. We are told that we must give up everything in order to realize the Self, and that once we do so we are liberated from all our suffering and can dwell in a state of permanent enlightenment. Enlightenment is presented as the ultimate experience, the end of the path, the final goal of all our seeking
And so we go desperately seeking after this thing called enlightenment hoping it will provide us with the spontaneity and connection we have lost, forgetting that the thing that we are seeking through is the same mind that craves complexity, and that the one we are seeking for has never actually been lost.
In fact, THAT which we are searching for is the same Self that we already are, and always have been. And this is the great cosmic paradox. We can never find this Self by seeking after it, simply because it is already THAT which exists behind all seeking, all exploring and all being.
Let us go back to some of the advaita (non-duality) teachings of ancient India to understand more clearly what this elusive journey is about. Perhaps we will find that this journey of enlightenment is not about going anywhere but recognizing where we already are, not about doing anything but anchoring more deeply into the reality of what is already here.
Discovering the Self is not difficult. It is not the end of a long tortuous path but the very beginning. The Self pervades all things and is at the very root of our awareness, thoughts and feelings. It is the sense of being that exists before thought arises and in the midst of every thought. It is the consciousness that animates our body, the consciousness that inspire our thoughts and feelings, the consciousness that provides us with a sense of identity through the individuation of the mind. And it is the same consciousness that fills the entire universe. It is inseparable from our very existence. It is the presence we experience when we simply take a moment to be quiet, nothing more mysterious than that.
Our journey begins with the self-evident truth that this presence is who we are. And because this same presence vibrates at the heart of everyone and everything, we are essentially not separate from each other, whether it is another person or a flower, a rock or a galaxy. When this awareness becomes established within our human experience we might refer to this as enlightenment. The teachings are very clear that enlightenment is not a mystical experience to be sought or achieved, rather a deepening realization based on an accurate understanding of who we are.
The advaita teachings begin with the premise that before the creation of matter and life, the Self has always existed. The Self is not bound to creation, time or space. The qualities associated with the Self are Existence, Consciousness and Endlessness, and since all things that exist share these qualities, all things share a common existence.
Consciousness exists independent of matter but matter cannot exist independent of consciousness. In order for matter to exist Consciousness needed to create a reflection of Itself through the agency of Maya. This created the realm of Mind, which extended to the creation of the physical universe in the fabric of time and space.
Our essential Self therefore has eternally existed beyond time space and matter, and possesses all the qualities we might associate with the consciousness of a Creator, or God. Just as a mirror shatters into tiny pieces, each piece reflecting the whole, so Mind scattered itself into an infinity of soul-sparks, creating the illusion of separateness and multiplicity within the realm of Matter.
Who we are therefore is the essential Self, reflected as Mind, and extending into bodies of varying density danced into creation within the fabric of time and space. The human mind is a holographic reflection of this universal mind. Our sense of egoic identity is a function of this mind and real only in the sense that a reflection in the pond derives its reality from THAT which is being reflected.
As we become aware of this truth, and learn to carry this awareness into all the circumstances of our lives we achieve a freedom from identification with the separate ego and recognize ourselves as one with the infinite source of all things. As this recognition grows within our human experience we come into the awareness that we are the creators of every aspect of our life, and in this knowledge set ourselves free.
We understand that there is no fixed reality out there in the world controlling and directing the circumstances of our lives. Rather it is the structure and conditioning of the mind that generates the illusion of a reality separate from ourselves and outside of ourselves.
Once we understand the deep roots of this conditioning we discover that we can release ourselves from the mass hypnosis that governs our human experience. We can unplug ourselves from the matrix of a collective mind trapped in the illusion of its own duality, and in so doing become creators and co-creators of our lives and our world.
Being a co-creator in this context begins with the recognition that we are infinite beings of limitless power. This truth derives not from the limited identity of the body-mind-personality-complex but rather from an alignment with universal consciousness that is our essential Self.
If we are one with the Self, and the Self pervades all things, we are no longer subject to the illusions and perceptions of the mental ego. We learn that existence is multidimensional, and that as we allow this multidimensional force to move through us, we gain access to a synchronistic flow of life, generating ripples of creativity beauty and joy wherever we go.
We no longer need to experience ourselves as victims of circumstances or subservient to the powers that be. A self-harmonizing force begins to emanate through us capable of touching all the people and circumstances of our lives.
Enlightenment then is not an escape from our own dysfunctional relationships with ourselves and the world. It is about taking responsibility for the fullness of who we are, which means going beyond the borders of our mental conditioning and emotional prejudices, and entering into a higher spiral of evolution as global citizens and universal humans.
AN EVOLUTIONARY GATEWAY
By Kiara Windrider
February 22, 2015
Are we powerless automatons in a world gone mad? Are we to helplessly watch as our foods get poisoned, our ecosystems destroyed, and our freedoms eroded despite our best efforts to foster understanding and change? Where do we find hope when the drums of doom beat relentlessly on our doorstep day after day and hour after hour, numbing our minds, clamping our hearts, and poisoning our bodies in a slow dance of death?
And what if we discover this same numbing madness within our own psyches?
I don’t have an answer to these questions from a normal perspective of reality. I have felt my own fears for the planet, my loved ones and myself. I have experienced deep hopelessness, grief and rage as the juggernauts of twisted progress thundered past my door, questioning how long I could retain my own sanity in the face of unrelenting madness.
These questions are not mine alone. And these questions have led me to deeply investigate the nature of reality, and to discover my own place as a human being in these times of profound change.
I have written elsewhere about long-term planetary cycles, geo-magnetic field reversals and quantum evolutionary leaps. Understanding what these cycles are about gave me a reference point in the midst of human madness and chaos, but I still felt there was more to go. Having a big picture perspective helped, and it provided me with a sense of destiny and hope. However, I still felt restless at times. Wasn’t there more I could do to change the world, or at least my response to the world, so I didn’t feel like a sheep, victim or stooge in someone else’s reality?
As I entered into the insights of advaita, or non-dual philosophy, and simultaneously began exploring the frontiers of quantum theory, I discovered that they are the same essential message, and that ultimately these insights were not simply a perspective on reality but a means for shifting reality in a way I had not imagined before.
Advaita begins with the realization that there is a field of conscious intelligence permeating all things, extending beyond time, space and material creation, and that this is our essential identity. Modern physics is slowly coming to the same understanding. Advaita proposes that all things are linked together in consciousness, and that consciousness is the substrate of all things. Quantum theory asserts that the building blocks of material creation are not physical atoms but quantum strings, which ultimately derive from a field of conscious intelligence existing beyond the structures of time and space.
All things are linked together in this field. There is the beautiful metaphor of Indra’s net, which states that the universe is a string of pearls in which every pearl reflects every other pearl, contains every other pearl, and ultimately is every other pearl. Physicists such as Nassim Haramein have begun to reflect this understanding through mathematical equations, asserting that the universe is intrinsically linked together through wormholes, and that every proton is a wormhole connecting to every other proton.
He asserts that this understanding is the key to a unified field theory, in which the physics of subatomic quantum realities can be ultimately harmonized with the physics of a macrocosmic world of stars, galaxies, frogs, elephants and human beings.
These equations are fascinating, as are the insights of advaita philosophy. Exciting however as the theories are, the implications for us as sparks of Universal Consciousness and citizens of Gaia are even more so. For yes, we are infinitely beautiful and powerful creators of multidimensional reality incarnated in bodies of increasingly densified substance anchored within intricately interwoven dimensions of time and space… having forgotten this as we entered these bodies of matter.
It is the forgetfulness of this truth that keeps us trapped in victim consciousness, small ineffective automatons in a world gone mad.
Perhaps we can begin to remember now. We are conditioned to believe that the universe began with some kind of a cosmic big bang in which all known matter somehow suddenly came into existence from nothing. Through the mechanics of blind chance and given enough time, the first elements of inorganic matter were formed. Simple life forms came into existence, and then life continued to evolve through increasingly greater spirals of complexity until humans came along.
As part of this conditioning we have identified ourselves as human beings with a body, mind and evolving consciousness. We can trace our roots back to the beginning of time and count ourselves at the peak of the ladder of creation. We are slowly developing a nervous system capable of experiencing consciousness, capable of thinking, feeling and loving. And we are constantly struggling with animal instincts of survival, which pits us against nature, each other, and even God in a deadly game of roulette. Ultimately, we will either learn from our mistakes and learn to regulate our mad impulses, or go the way of the Neanderthals and extinguish ourselves from the face of the earth.
But what if this were only half the story? As matter continues to move upwards in the ladder of evolution, what if there is also an involutionary journey where Consciousness as an intelligent force is striving to experience itself ever more completely within the field of Maya, or Creation? And what if humans have achieved enough complexity within our nervous systems that we can now serve as a bridge between these two forces, embodied within creation yet existing beyond time and space, experiencing the limitations aof human existence while also awake to the truth of our infinite being?
As I identify with this involutionary process, I discover that who I AM is Infinite Consciousness. I step into the veils of Maya, and create a reflection of myself within the realms of the Mind. This Universal Mind contains all the archetypes necessary for creation to manifest and forms to appear. Using the mechanisms of evolution, I continue to move within matter, body, instinct, feeling, and the evolving functions of a rational mind. I awake to myself as a human being struggling to discover himself and his place in the universe.
And then I move past the limitations of this current human incarnation, and begin to discover aspects of myself that have been hidden up until now. Evolution and involution become one movement. The personal self and the universal self recognize themselves within each other. I discover that I can begin to perceive reality from a level of consciousness beyond the structures of the rational mind.
A higher level of the mind that is capable of subtler perception begins to assert itself. And I discover that I am not simply a created self but also a creator self, not simply acting and reacting from a collective matrix of conditioning but entering into the dance of creation with conscious intent. The divine self and the human self come together in the genesis of a new species of humanity, the divine human.
This new species that I find myself identified with now is not driven by instinctive urges of ownership, jealousy, competition and aggression. I function at a level of mind beyond the rational mind, where these relatively immature expressions of identity have been naturally transcended, where I find my greatest joy in releasing the limited identity of separate existence to discover the unity present within the heart of all things. I no longer experience the need to bend the universe to my every ego-based whim and desire, but find myself becoming a vehicle for the universe to reveal itself moment by moment in a grand loom of living perfection.
It is here that I discover my true power. As a divine human, I am capable of effecting change wherever I go and whatever I do, not by trying to make things happen, but by becoming a vehicle for a higher level of mind to work through. I do not perceive the world through the eyes of lack, fear, limitation, comparison or judgment, which are all functions of the rational mind. Instead I find that I perceive only perfection, and this perfection imprints itself into external reality.
I discover that there is no reality out there separate from my internal reality. I cannot be a sheep, victim or stooge in someone else’s reality, because reality is fluid and I AM no longer bound by the illusions of separation, duality and fear.
And as I perceive, so it is. And as enough of us awaken to this realization, our world changes collectively. And we find that what is real has always existed in the heart of creation, waiting for us to return home to ourselves and remember.
There is an ancient Indian legend about the 13th Sun, that in the fullness of time it would emerge from within the heart of matter and give birth to a new consciousness on Earth. Perhaps that time is Now, and this Awareness is the key.
‘Lead me from untruth to truth’, said the sages of old. ‘Lead me from darkness to light, from death to immortality.’

We have evolved in bodies of matter, spirit rising upwards through a hidden force within nature, developed organs of life and perception, human beings with a nervous system capable of reaching beyond the limits of mind and reason to touch the great unknown.
And we are this great unknown, a primal consciousness pervading all things and extending beyond all things, constantly projecting ourselves in and out of physical creation through wormholes of time and space.
We are creation as well as creator. As creation we tend to identify with bodies of matter. We perceive ourselves as human beings with bodies, minds, emotions and senses, tied to a collective past and continually evolving towards new biological possibilities.
As creator, we exist in a realm untouched by time, history, space or matter, unborn and undying, externalizing as material creation in the beautiful cosmic dance of maya.
Our task as humans is to walk between these two worlds, entering consciously into a vortex where evolution and involution come together as one movement, where creator meets its reflection within creation, and creation wakes up to its potential as creator.
To understand creation we must first contemplate the mechanics of space and time. If the universe started as a big bang, what existed before this? What existed before time itself? And did space exist beyond the cosmic bang? Physicists have long pondered this puzzle and come no closer to understanding this paradox. How come the laws of physics start falling apart the closer we get to this elusive big bang? And how come the equations of quantum reality are so completely differently from the equations of macrocosmic reality?
Scientists such as Nassim Haramein have tried to reconcile these equations by postulating that on a subatomic level each proton is a wormhole connected to every other proton. Other scientists have declared that the only way to harmonize quantum physics with macrocosmic realities is by recognizing that our universe has no beginning and no end. Perhaps both these intuitions are a dark glimpse into the fact that matter does not exist on its own, but is knit within a fabric of primal consciousness that is much more subtle. Within this field of consciousness the substance we identify as matter and energy has always existed and will always exist, visibly or invisibly, even as suns are born and die or universes awake and fall asleep.
We tend to create a dichotomy in our minds in which spirit is eternal and matter is temporal. What if this assumption were false? What if we only experience matter as temporal and limited because our organs of perception are themselves temporal and limited? What if they both exist equally within consciousness?
Because we tend to identify ourselves with the body, the death of our body in any given incarnation seems to be the end of consciousness. We project this understanding upon the universe, and assume that the material universe also has an end. As our bodies dissolve so the universe must dissolve. As bodies are born so universes are born.
But what if there are not two fixed polarities of matter and spirit but one essential reality appearing as two? What if creator and creation are not two distinct things but one holographic entity within the fabric of consciousness? What if who we are is one vibrational essence that flows through the stars and through the trees and through these human bodies and every subatomic string of quantum existence?
Scientists have shown that the same light that behaves as waves while travelling through interstellar space starts behaving as particles in the presence of an observer. What is it about our mind that creates this observation? Could it be that our human minds are structured in such a way as to literally create an illusion of reality that appears as the world around us, a holographic projector creating a 3D movie?
Our minds are currently structured so that we appear to be separate from each other in terms of space, and move forwards in terms of time. But what if we are on an evolutionary pathway where the structure and function of our mind is itself changing to perceive things in terms of unity rather than separation, timelessness rather than time?
Would the laws of physics function differently then? Would we perceive reality in a different way? Would we interact with the world differently? Is it possible that the world out there appears to be what it is only because the collective mind perceives it so? If so, would upgrading the hardware of the mind alter the shape of the world out there?
This, I believe, is the next frontier of human consciousness. As we become conscious of our own consciousness, evolution and involution become a single movement within life’s journey. We are making a collective shift from a mental perception of reality based in separation and duality to a supra-mental perception of reality rooted in a unified quantum identity.
Some time ago I began practicing a form of meditation that focuses on flows of sensation and energy pathways within the body. I also began a deep study of the advaita traditions of non-duality, while examining the work of Sri Aurobindo and Mirra Alfassa, two mystics who held that there was a new light ‘descending’ into the heart of matter, revealing itself within the mind of the cells.
As I gradually began to perceive this truth within my own being I began to experience states of mind where the skin boundaries dissolved and my experience of self expanded through vibrational resonance to everything around. It also became possible to enter deeply into any given cell and experience an entire universe within. The boundary between inner and outer, above and below started to get blurry. I became aware of a subtle vibrational current that connected all things, a current that was the substrate of all matter and creation, but was itself timeless and spaceless. Rather than being an impersonal void, this current was alive with presence, and this presence was the universal self that knows itself at the source of all life.
And this current existed as the spirit within all things regardless of whether I was aware of this or not, whether I categorized it as alive or inert, large or small, visible or invisible. This presence externalized as strings within string theory, or quanta within quantum theory. It projected itself as matter or energy within a framework of time and space, while remaining unchanged and untouched at the heart of all things.
This presence is the evolutionary force latent within matter while at the same time that which involutes or presses down upon matter. It is the same intelligence that spins the galaxies and inspires a lonely wanderer to reflect on the stars at night. It is the intelligence that orchestrates the planetary web of life, and nudges us to remember that we are not alone. It is the intelligence that interacts with the higher mind of Gaia to produce a new species of humanity with minds and hearts wide open to this rhythmic dance of creation, arising from eternity and dissolving back into infinity in each moment of existence.
This is the presence I AM, which seems to condense itself in a bodymind complex I have learned to refer to as me. And yes, this body is me, but it is not who I AM, this human personality is me, but it is not who I AM. For I stand alone as I AM, yet have embarked on a journey to incarnate more deeply into this human form than ever before, and to change the very definition of humanness; to enter more deeply into the body of the earth than ever before, and change the very face of the earth.
When Religion Becomes an Opiate
By Kiara Windrider
February 26, 2015
For as long as humanity has existed there have been spiritual traditions evolving to remind us of what was real and important. It would usually start off with a person who was ahead of their times, saw a little further than most, and who had learned to experience a certain amount of peace, harmony, and oneness in their lives.
All too often these living teachings became encapsulated with dogmas, rituals and rules as followers who had not experienced their own transformation passed on a second hand version of these living truths. Eventually, like seeds trying to sprout in barren soils or thorny brush, they kernels of truth got diluted, distorted and denied.
Every religion has gone through these phases, turning something that was once life-affirming into a mind-rotting, body-torturing and soul-numbing set of hoops to jump through. Whether it is about using scare tactics to control a populance or making promises that cannot be kept, sharing half-truths that keep us mystified or laws that make us enslaved, religions have often created gods in the image of man to reflect the worst aspects of our human experience.
Not only has this led to superficial excuses for control, division, war and genocide, we have created endless justifications for abusing our natural resources and destroying the delicate balance of life. We either learn from religion that man has dominion over nature and therefore has the right to do what we wish for our own selfish ends, or that the world is an illusion and therefore to be denied.
No wonder, given the sordid history of human civilization, that Karl Marx declared religion to be the opiate of the masses!
As I contemplate on what distinguishes an empowering spirituality from an opiate, the following qualities come to mind. Genuine spiritual teachings:
- do not use fear, threat or punishment as a means for control
- will not make afterlife promises or manipulate the masses with promises that cannot be kept
- are inclusive, tolerant, compassionate and forgiving
- refuse to justify aggression, greed and oppression for any reason whatsoever
- empower people, men as well as women, to be the highest expression of divinity they can possibly be
- will not create a hierarchical priesthood but provide inspiration and tools for each person to discover their own unique channel to divinity.
- foster an open-hearted open-minded sense of wonder for all of creation
- preach responsibility and protection for those who don’t have a voice of their own
- hold an attitude of humble stewardship and guardianship rather than arrogant domination of the earth and her resources
- will offer a means to engage more directly rather than escape from social, political and ecological responsibility
Of course, we are all at different stages of this journey into maturity, holding different memes of expression, different capacities and different karmic paths. There is a wisdom born of tolerance and compassion which acknowledges each person’s individual path while at the same time condemns any attempts to manipulate, oppress or destroy another.
The more we evolve as spiritual beings the more subtle our challenges become. We may not actively exploit or oppress others or create policies to rape and pillage the earth, but we may still stop short of actively protecting or honouring those who live differently or think differently than ourselves. We may say we love god and at the same time deny the god which is present in life, and held within the intricate balance of nature. We may seek freedom or transcendence from the wheel of life while denouncing the material world and human relationships as illusion and therefore unimportant.
Ultimately any perceived truth or falsehood is but a reflection of our own state of development. As we continue in our journey of truth, we may find that our perceptions of reality are more fluid. We give ourselves breathing space and no longer seek to imprison ourselves or anybody else with rules, roles, guilt and endless belief systems. We stop having to compare or judge ourselves or anybody else. We delete the need to understand everything through the rationality of the mind, and seek to experience life spontaneously and open-heartedly.
We no longer need to control our lives but allow life to flow through us, creating ripples of blessing wherever we go. We no longer need to call ourselves anything or define ourselves through any belief system. We recognize that who we are is a single interconnected organism much vaster than the puny little skinbags we have identified with. And we allow the universe to flow through our hearts minds and bodies as surrendered vehicles for life to experience itself freshly in each moment.

Sri Aurobindo speaks about three kinds of transformation: psychic, spiritual and supramental. Psychic transformation has to do with gaining an acquaintance with what he calls the ‘psychic being’, the inner spark of intelligence we each carry within our deep heart that guides our way through life. As we begin to listen to this voice within the heart we slowly get weaned away from the uncontrollable fire of our passions and enter into the silence of our inner being. It reflects as a presence that shines through our eyes, creating a space of strength and stillness within the storms of life.
As we advance in the task of psychic transformation we then enter the path of spiritual transformation. We recognize that within the stillness of the heart rests an entire universe, and that this universe is not distinct from all that exists in the vast oceans of time and space. The personal self and the universal self merge into one distinct identity in our journey of self-realization.
For most people on the spiritual path this is the ultimate goal of consciousness. However, Sri Aurobindo refers to something beyond, a third path of transformation that can only begin once we are firmly rooted in these first two stages of awareness. This is not a journey up but a journey down, not into light but into darkness. It refers to a path of self perfection that includes the physical body and the material planes. It involves reaching deep into the physical mind, or the mind of the cells, and transforming this. It requires going deep into the Inconscient, into the densest layers of our personal and collective illusions, and illuminating them.
This illusion, or maya as the hindus refer to it, is hard-wired into our DNA. It is the lens through which we perceive the world around us, and through which we create the illusion of material time and space. Another term we could use for this collective illusion, used by Morpheus in that well known cult movie, is the matrix. The matrix is all around us and we do not see it. It is the program hardwired so deeply into our sensory perceptions and physical structures that we literally create our own version of the universe in space and time.
It is a universe with certain built in limits that we take for granted. It is brought into existence through the sensory perceptions of the rational mind. It is driven by the laws of entropy which means that our bodies are subject to decay and death. It is framed in linear time which means that our existence is driven by memories and programs from the past, or fears and expectations of the future, coded deep into our DNA from our collective as well as personal history. Laws of cause and effect drive this universe, ensuring that we are trapped in a web of karmic law and limited capacity for change. This universe is experienced through the eyes of duality, and therefore reflects this back to our senses as something that exists outside of ourselves. We exist as a speck within this universe rather than the other way around.
The supramental world has a completely different starting point. It is brought into existence through the perceptions of a unified mind, which experiences itself as the One Self that embraces all things, simultaneously within all things and beyond all things. The laws of quantum physics apply to this realm of creation. We are not embedded in time and space, rather time and space are an extension of our creative consciousness, which unfolds as universal energy dancing in fields of matter. The entire created universe exists as a speck within the all pervading consciousness that I know myself to be.
The supramental transformation is about bringing this unified awareness into the structures of conditioned human consciousness. The same physical mind that is trapped in the conditioning of the past, once transformed, can act as a powerful stabilizing influence for the supramental field to permeate deeply into the structures of matter.
We do not age and die because we exist in bodies of matter. We age and die because our bodies are conditioned by an invisible field of limitations centered around an over-riding belief in duality. This belief in duality becomes the matrix that then shapes our existence from that point onwards, miring us in the quicksands of entropy, karma, and fragmented existence.
What if we are willing to challenge this state of things. Einstein equated matter with energy. Mystics equate energy with consciousness. Once we truly understand this we will identify ourselves not as personalities built into matter but as consciousness capable of entering the heart of matter to create infinite possibilities within the evolving universe, which is simply a holographic extension of who we are.
How do we accomplish this supramental descent? As mentioned earlier the first step is to recognize that our spiritual journey is not about leaving the body but entering it fully. It is about going into the collective programming that drives our existence and dismantling this, step by gradual step. I do not think this journey can be accomplished through the mind, although the mind can be useful in terms of understanding the big picture and holding an intent for making this transformation.
What I do believe can help is a shamanic understanding of the universe. In the Inka tradition of South America it was believed that there is only one field of energy that permeates the universe and is the universe. This energy is in a state of constant reciprocal flow, which they referred to as ‘ayni’. The unobstructed flow of this energy is known as ‘sami’; when it is blocked it is known as ‘hucha’. They believed that humans are the only beings on this planet capable of blocking this flow of energy and thereby creating hucha. This creation of hucha eventually leads to the perception of duality which has shaped and conditioned our world for the past many thousand years.
The Inkas teach a series of simple practices for releasing hucha and re-establishing the flow of sami. When sami flows freely through our energy systems we are reconnected with the upper worlds and the lower worlds and can once again find a harmonious place within the flow of the universe.
In the Inka teachings the upper worlds are linked with higher levels of the mind, including what Sri Aurobindo refers to as the illumined mind, intuitive mind, and supermind. The middle world is our view of the universe created by the rational mind. The lower world includes the world of the physical mind, and the deep patterns of conditioning that drive our instincts and passions. These patterns are hard wired into our genes, and shape the long journey of psychic and spiritual evolution. As long as we remain unconscious this physical mind becomes the genetic matrix which keeps us trapped in the dense quicksands of maya, the seemingly endless cycles of karma, density, separation and fear.
However, it is possible to transform this same physical mind so that it becomes a powerful ally for stabilizing and channelling the supramental forces pouring down from the upper worlds. The Inka practices can assist in this work. But it requires a deep focus and strong intention. It requires a willingness to go deep into the darkness of the inconscient, and an innate trust in the psychic being who is guiding us on this journey. It requires a knowledge that the inconscient itself is simply a densified aspect of the same consciousness that pervades all things, and where we find our ultimate identity. If we go into darkness we must know ourselves as the light. Knowing this it simply becomes a journey deeper into the heart of our own hidden self.
And since the same Self moves through the heart of all things, whenever we illuminate the perceived density of matter in one small aspect of the collective we illuminate and holographically transform the whole. We participate in the evolutionary journey of Gaia herself.
This was the journey undertaken by Sri Aurobindo and the Mother. The Mother proclaimed on February 29, 1956, that the supramental field was finally able to penetrate into this realm of density, through her own body and into the body of the earth. The supramental transformation had begun. Sixty years later, this work continues to deepen within the structures of evolving humanity. What does it look like now, and where do we take it from here?
THE SUPRAMENTAL FORCE AND THE CONQUEST OF DEATH
By Kiara Windrider
February 23, 2016
Sri Aurobindo before his death spoke about the manifestation of the supramental consciousness on earth. He said it would take about 300 years until this force would be incarnated into the body of the earth, releasing in the process a great resistance held within the cells of our own bodies. This resistance, or maya, has held us trapped in a powerful matrix of duality where we have separated mind from heart, spirit from body, human from divine, and lost ourselves in a cycle of insecurity, violence, despair and fear.
He succeeded in bringing the supramental force into his own body to a certain extent, and transferred this force to the Mother upon his own passing in 1950. The Mother then continued this work of supramental descent until in 1956 she announced that the pathway was open so that this unifying force could now incarnate like a seed within the collective consciousness of humanity.
We are not talking merely about a spiritual awakening for humanity but a species transformation. It is a biological shift in the morphogenetic fields of our cellular DNA that defines the next human species, moving us inevitably to a stage of human evolution as different from our current species as we are to the evolution that preceded us.
The Mother continued this work until her death in 1973. She had not actually intended that this work would stop, but had hoped to continue the work on a cellular level even beyond the appearance of death. She wished simply that her body would be protected during the weeks or months it might take to complete the process. This she had confided to Satprem who was her close confidante and chronicler for the last 23 years of her life. Unfortunately, in the political climate of the ashram at that time, Satprem was barred from visiting the Mother during those last six months of her life, and the ones who were responsible for her well being chose to over-ride her wishes and put her body into the ground the moment she appeared to have passed away.
It was made publicly known that the work of supramental descent had been postponed, and would be continued at another time.
We must understand that this work of supramental descent is a conscious act of entering the programming of our cells, down to the DNA of our human genetics, and gradually, step by step, allowing these codes to be re-written. It has nothing to do with the rational mind, emotions or instincts, all of which are products of a past evolution. As the supramental descent takes place it pushes up to the surface all the resistance held within morphogenetic fields of the
past history of the human race, all the patterns of violence, aggression, greed, insecurity and fear. Thus it is no simple matter to incarnate the supramental consciousness. An entirely new foundation needs to be built up from the ruins of the old. The descent is necessarily accompanied by all the symptoms of our collective human resistance and suffering as it emerges into conscious awareness in order to be released.
Thus the announcement made about the supramental descent being postponed came from this unconscious internalized resistance, an attempt to slow down the unravelling process, perhaps an attempt to ease the pain of too quick a transformation.
But this was only a surface truth. What few people are aware of is that the work did not stop with the Mother’s passing. In an act of great determination and courage, Satprem came to the realization that it was his task to continue the Mother’s work in his own body. Just as Sri Aurobindo had transferred his supramentalized awareness to the Mother, she managed to occultly transfer her own supramental force to Satprem, who then continued the work from 1982 right up to his death in 2007.
Satprem had recorded all his conversations with the Mother over the 23 years they had been together. She had chosen him and prepared him not simply to record her own experiences of divine materialization but to accomplish something else he had not foreseen. These conversations were transcribed and became the basis for the 13 volumes of The Agenda. They also became the basis of this work being continued within his own body, as chronicled in the yet unpublished 24 volume series, Notebooks of an Acopalypse (see flammedalterite.wordpress.com).
One of the team of people involved in the translation and publishing of these notebooks, Deeksha, was describing to me some of the concrete aspects of this supramentalization process. About six months before the Mother left her body she had managed to program her cellular consciousness so that it did not require food in order to survive. As Satprem began his own journey of conscious cellular mutation he soon arrived at this same realization. This was eventually followed by even deeper genetic adaptations such as each cell being able to exchange prana and oxygen directly with its environment, rather than through the lungs. As the supramental light continued to press downwards its luminosity began transform the stem cells and skeletal structures within his body.
Two months before he died in 2007 Satprem wrote to Kireet Joshi saying that the great doorway, which the ancient Vedas refer to as mahaspara, was now open, and that the possibility of deathlessness now existed as a distinct morphogenetic possibility within the human species.
Creating a morphogenetic field is like seeding a new possibility within a genetic pool. The nature of these fields is that once initiated it makes it possible for other people to follow. Like the story of the hundredth monkey it is becoming easier and easier now for more and more people to accomplish the same cellular mutations until, when the moment is right, these new capabilities become manifest in the entire species.
It seems to me that Satprem has played a role just as important as Sri Aurobindo or the Mother’s in taking forward this work of supramental transformation. I am greatly comforted to know this. Perhaps it is not going to take two or three hundred years after all for a supramental species to be manifested. As I study world events today it seems to me that this great work is continuing to accelerate ever more strongly. It may be only a matter of years or decades now until a divine human species breaks itself loose from the worn out shell of a dying age.
On 29 February this year it will be 60 years since the supramental descent of 1956. Meanwhile, we are placed in a situation where not only a global financial collapse but also the possibility of a third and final world war seems imminent. The asuric forces are rampant out in the world. But do these forces have a reality of their own, or they simply a response to this supramental force as it presses upon human consciousness? The nature of evolutionary leaps is such that they only take place when the old order has become sufficiently destabilized. The asuric forces have been divinely ordained to create this destabilization. Just as it seems that we will inevitably sink into collapse and destruction, the evolutionary spark will be ignited, and a collective event will become possible.
There are those who will feel called to continue this avataric work within their own bodies until it is done. And when it is complete we shall rise up as sun eyed children of the new dawn, architects of immortality, striking one mighty blow upon the golden doors of a new earth, pioneering a new species of humanity into existence.
The Syrian Crisis and Weapons of Mass Distraction
By Kiara Windrider
Feb 24, 2016
It is all too often now that the nations of this world have been justifying the invasion of yet another sovereign nation based on scenarios and opinions carefully orchestrated by a deceptive media campaign.
Propaganda wars are not new. In fact most of them seem to follow the same old tired game plan that continues to succeed simply because people have become either too lazy, too complacent, or too fearful to think for themselves. Typically there is first a false flag event which gets blamed on the intended target, justifying why an evil leader or nation poses a threat to the civilized world and must be removed, and then once people have been brainwashed enough to condone it, there is the actual act of military invasion.
The current conflict in Syria is a case in point. The Western media is full of stories about the Syrian ‘dictator’ Bashar al Assad and how he has massacred millions of ‘his own people’ and therefore deserves to be ousted. So then of course, it is left to the United States and its allies to charge into action and do whatever is necessary to remove him from power.
This activity is rather euphemistically known as regime change. It happened in Libya with Muammar Qaddafi. It happened in Iraq with Saddam Hussein. It’s happened in Afghanistan and Somalia and Palestine in recent years, and its happened all over Latin America and much of Asia and Africa in decades past.
But what’s really going on here? Are some of these so-called dictators really as bad as they are made out to be? Or is their real crime just that they happen to stand in the way of an aggressive hidden hand? How about the puppets they are replaced with? More importantly, who are the puppeteers who pull the strings, the real psychopaths and terrorists? Over decades of observation I have seen a single recurring pattern at work every time a nation is invaded for the purposes of regime change. Weapons of mass distraction are first aimed at denouncing and demonizing a nation or its leader, usually based on false propaganda, followed by removing this leader from power and installing a puppet who is more amenable to whatever agendas are hidden under the table, all in the name of democracy and freedom. We have become very good at this. And like the events of an ill-fated day when the twin towers of New York were brought down, few bother to question what is truly going on behind the media screen and why.
Who dangles the strings? Is it a coincidence that these puppeteers are the very same people who own the mainstream media and get away time and time again with lies in the name of truth, butchery in the name of protection, and slavery in the name of freedom? People around the world have become so conditioned by the propaganda war that the very use of the word terrorist, communist, dictator or jihadist evokes the necessary justification for ‘sending in the cavalry’. And like the ‘Indian’ massacres of centuries gone by, an entire nation with its history and culture is decimated forever with no questions ever being asked.
And then there are those proxy wars where a nation may not invade directly but creates militant groups to go fight the ‘bad guys’ who usually end up being infinitely worse than those they are hired to fight against. The CIA created the Taliban to fight the Russians in Afghanistan and Al Qaeda to fight Qaddafi in Libya. The CIA/Mossad/Wahabis created ISIS in order to overthrow Assad. And when the tide turns and these mercenary terrorist armies are revealed to be rogue characters on the world stage, the same nations that created them, funded them, trained them, and armed them put on a great show of shock, surprise and outrage when vast millions of Syrians are consequently massacred, terrorized or displaced from their homes and homelands.
Isn’t it interesting that the only ones in Syria who have truly been successful in countering ISIS have been the Russians, who have a military pact to support the legitimate government of Syria? Why is Russia, along with Assad’s forces and the Kurds, managing to dismantle ISIS in a matter of months when after two years of involvement in Syria the US has only succeeded in multiplying their sphere of influence and creating a huge humanitarian crisis? If the US and its allies truly wanted to get rid of ISIS why have they been obstructing Russia every step of the way? If ISIS (along with the Free Syrian Army and Al Nusrah) was created to get rid of Assad, and continues to be covertly funded by the US and its allies, should it surprise anyone why this proxy invasion has resulted in a massive civil war? And why the US campaign against ISIS has proven to be a campaign of smoke and mirrors?
Having said all this lets go on to the real reason why Assad is considered so evil. The US agenda to get rid of Assad (and the subsequent creation of ISIS) was formed in 2011 when Assad chose NOT to allow a pipeline to run through his country that would have benefited Saudi Arabia, Qatar and their Western allies (primarily the US) at the detriment of his own economy. Likewise, the decision to invade Iraq was made long before the events of 9-11 because Saddam had decided to no longer trade oil in petrodollars but in euros, which would have set a ‘dangerous’ precedent for that region. And how many people are aware that the real reason Libya was invaded and Qaddafi dragged through the streets to his death was because he too wished to get off the dollar standard and create a gold backed pan-African currency that would have allowed Africa to get free from the stifling yoke of the IMF?
How many people are aware that the so-called ‘axis of evil’ touted by George Bush includes precisely those nations who wished to become independent of the global hegemony created by the Rothschild controlled World Bank and its fractional reserve lending system? All these nations have fallen now, with the exception of Syria, Iran, North Korea, China and Russia.
The excuses were always just that, a pretext for foreign invasions. Foreign invasions, whether covert or overt, do not happen for the reasons given to an unsuspecting public. Of course I cannot directly tell people that what I really want is to plunder land that belongs to somebody else or that what I really wish is to secure oil, uranium, military bases or financial control. So I will manufacture a crisis, create a cast of good guys and bad guys, demonize the bad guys, and then under the pretext of saving the world from these bad guys, go out and invade this nation so I can get exactly what I want with the rest of the world watching and applauding. And to hell with whatever mess or ‘collateral damage’ I happen to leave behind.
Where were the weapons of mass destruction to be found after the invasion of Iraq had accomplished its purpose? Who came up with the idea of chemical weapons and barrel bombs in Libya and Syria? Where are the nukes in Iran? Does anyone in the Western world choose to actually listen to these demonized leaders and see what their side of the story is? And what are conditions like for ordinary people in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya after the so-called wars of liberation have been fought? How many men women and children have been massacred as cannon fodder? How many thousands of babies continue to be born deformed as a result of depleted uranium shelling? Why has it been necessary for so many millions of civilians to flee from Syria? Libya under Qaddafi was one of the wealthiest countries in Africa. Today it is in total shambles. Why isn’t all this thoroughly examined in the Western mainstream media? The same scenario has been enacted in Latin America, Africa, Vietnam and scores of countries around the world.
Meanwhile Saudi Arabia, who has committed more beheadings than ISIS and sports the worst violations of women’s rights amongst any of the Arab nations is a staunch ally of NATO and the US. So is Israel who has been repeatedly condemned by the UN for its atrocities against the Palestinian people. And so is President Erdogan of Turkey who has consistently launched brutal attacks against Kurds both within his own borders and across the border into Syria, as well as upon journalists, peace groups, and military generals who dare to protest. These nations are amongst those dangerously poised in Syria right now to launch a ground attack that could easily flare up into a global nuclear war.
I do not condone violence in any of its forms nor do I wish to take sides. I am not implying here that Hussein, Qaddafi or Assad were blameless. There have doubtless been great acts of cruelty, deception and despotism on all sides. I do however notice that these accusations and deliberate attempts for demonization usually cover up a very different agenda on the part of those who are vociferously pointing fingers. What agendas are being served, and who ultimately benefits from the destruction and massive chaos generated once the pretext for an invasion has been established?
This is not a tirade against the US either. It would be a mistake to say that any one country or set of countries is responsible for these threats to sovereignty and freedom. The true culprits are not nations but an elite band of powerful corporations, family lineages, and banking structures that ultimately determine geopolitical maneuvers and economic policies worldwide. Some refer to this hidden hand controlling the strings as the Cabal or the Shadow Government or the Illuminati or more fancifully, the Zionist Khazarian Mafia, whose goal is to establish global domination and total financial control. This is not some nutcase ‘conspiracy theory’. We are talking about a very real and ugly fascist agenda which is grinding its way towards a predictable and devastating outcome. Ordinary people in the US, UK and Europe are as much victims of this hidden hand as anyone else. Civil liberties are being increasingly curtailed, the war on terror continues to escalate, and economic conditions around the world have been brought to the verge of collapse, all deliberately engineered in order to create a state of global panic so that new laws restricting individual and national freedoms can be enacted. The Homeland Security Act, the Monsanto Protection Bill and the Trans Pacific Partnership are resounding examples of this.
If the Illuminati agenda proves to be successful we will inevitably enter into a new world order of nightmarish proportions that George Orwell himself could not have foreseen. On my part, I do not think this plan will ultimately succeed, and I see many signs on the horizon that the power of the Cabal is starting to decline. There is the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, for instance, challenging the hegemony of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. There is Vladmir Putin of Russia, who is very much aware of the New World Order agenda and determined to put an end to it by informing the world community about this as well as keeping a cool head and taking preventive steps militarily. There is dissent within the ranks of the Cabal as well. And what Saddam Hussein and Muammar Qaddafi could not accomplish for their respective countries is being accomplished now by the BRICS alliance, who are calling for a smooth transition of the collapsing global economy towards an equitable gold backed system that would put an end to the fractional reserve system of lending that has led to so much injustice, violence and aggression around the world.
Above all, the reason I do not think the New World Order agenda will ultimately succeed is the growing number of people around the planet who are choosing to walk with their hearts and eyes open, holding a vision of freedom and sovereignty for all beings on earth, and daring to seek and speak the truth no matter what. A new light is shining in the world, a light shining through the darkness of long ages. As this new age of light dawns I do believe we will create a lasting basis for peace on earth.
