Excerpts from Ilahinoor

by Kiara Windrider

There is an old story about the man who dreams he is a butterfly. The dream is so vivid that when he wakes up he is not clear whether he is a man who once dreamed he was a butterfly, or a butterfly now dreaming he is a man.
Perhaps this is an appropriate parable for this age. There is a sense of dreamlike absurdity about these times. There is a world of time and space all around which we believe to be real. We struggle to survive in this world, we grapple with relationships, and we yearn to lift ourselves out from unfulfilling lives of quiet desperation. We look around at a world gone out of control, careening rapidly towards chaos and madness, and wonder how long we have before some cosmic clock begins to toll our final hour of existence.
Meanwhile, in some distant corner of our minds, a new reality intrudes. It tells us there is more to existence than we are currently aware, more to our world than what we can observe with our physical senses. It whispers to us its song of hope rather than fear, excitement rather than doom. Like a caterpillar dreaming an unknown dream, it hints of worlds waiting beyond a distant horizon wilder than anything we’ve known.
How do we distinguish between wishful dreams born of existential despair and true dreams birthed from an awakening consciousness? Are we human beings who once dreamed of a golden age only to awaken to the nightmare we have created around us? Or are we awakening now within this dream to real possibilities yet unknown? Is it possible that we might be butterflies in disguise?
This is the theme I wish to explore in this book. There is a light emerging within the darkness of this age, a light that is shining strong and bright from within. It is a light that can be accessed by each one of us as an antidote to the deep webs of subconscious programming and fear that have kept us trapped in illusion. We have mistaken this illusion for reality, and constructed our lives around maintaining the illusion.
The waves of light moving towards us now are designed to penetrate this subconscious programming and to awaken us from the dream. It is a light which I refer to as Ilahinoor. My quest to understand what this light is about, where it emerges from, and why it is moving through our consciousness at this time in planetary history, has led me through some amazing experiences and insights into a field of immense hope for humanity and the world.
This is the journey I would like to share with you. It is a co-creative journey, and I am aware that my own journey into healing and awakening is not separate from yours. It is my hope that what you receive from this book is not merely a deeper understanding of what our planetary journey is about but a transmission of light that propels each of you into a quantum shift of awakening!

I wish to start with exploring the larger context for the Ilahinoor work, including information about immense changes we may be experiencing shortly within our planetary experience. Although this is a very quick summary, which I have tried to keep simple, some readers may wish to skip this part and go right into the Ilahinoor work. Other readers who wish to explore this in greater depth are urged to examine my earlier book, Year Zero: Time of the Great Shift, where you will find additional details as well as supporting documentation.

“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

Chapter 1 – A Galactic Heartbeat
We are awakening now from a dream. The dream has become a nightmare of sorts, as humans come ever closer to destroying our planetary home. But in the midst of the terrors we have unleashed, and cataclysms we might face in times to come, I also sense a hope, a hope that touches each of us, a hope that goes beyond wishful thinking to embrace a future potential bigger than anything I could have foreseen in years past. This is the hope I wish to share here in this book.
My vision of reality is based on cycles of time which interweave together in creating new universes. These are regular cycles, and therefore predictable. My view of reality is also based on the understanding that we are living simultaneously in multiple dimensions of existence, and that we are currently evolving our ability to navigate between these dimensions.
I do not believe that the universe was simply created in a big bang at the beginning of time and space. I believe that we are undergoing a process of creation that still continues, and that there are periodic events which stimulate new cycles of creation. I sense that we are entering one such period of creation right here and now.
Furthermore, I believe that the universe is alive in the same way that we consider ourselves to be alive. It has a destiny of its own, spawning new worlds and dimensions in a continuous attempt to evolve its own consciousness. There is an aspect of the universe that is beyond space and time which we might refer to as The Universe, or Creator. There is also an aspect of the universe 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, and become co-creators of a new Earth.
In my earlier book, Year Zero: Time of the Great Shift1, I went through a detailed exploration of what Paul LaViolette, Ph.D, astrophysicist and author of Earth Under Fire2, refers to as a galactic superwave. Galactic superwaves are emanations of cosmic radiation which pulse out from the center of galaxies, streaming out through interstellar space in a more or less regular fashion. We can imagine this as a galactic heartbeat, radiating out cosmic ray particles and gamma ray particles throughout the Milky Way on a periodic basis.
In our own solar system, this pulse seems to be synchronized with cycles within our Sun, and cycles within the Earth. For reasons that I explained more fully in my book, it seems that our galactic heartbeat moves out in pulses approximately 12,000 years apart.3 It may also be, as theorized by Douglas Vogt in his book, God’s Day of Judgment: The Real Cause of Global Warming4, that this 12,000 year pulse is a universal constant, and that all galaxies are synchronized to this heartbeat of life.
This galactic heartbeat is the driving force behind evolution. LaViolette asserts that rather than being birthed in one Big Bang of primal creation, the universe is continually birthing itself anew within the centers of galaxies. Galactic superwaves are carriers for these Creative energies, igniting the forces of new creation wherever they travel. Every time a galactic superwave moves through our own solar system a new cycle of evolution begins.
This indeed is what may be happening right now.

Chapter 2. Planetary Cycles
How did the universe come into being? Many a night as a young child I would look up at the stars and find myself wondering how it all got here. There weren’t so many words or concepts then, just a feeling of endless mystery and awe. Later, through my high school years, I learned to engage in endless debates between creationists and evolutionists. Creationists believed that a divine intelligence set the entire universe into motion in one grand creative act in the beginning of all time. Evolutionists disregarded the idea of a divine intelligence and asserted that the universe evolved by chance in a slow process of natural selection and genetic mutations.
Perhaps I lost a little bit of the mystery as I got caught up in the debate. Debates are about winning or losing, and someone has to be wrong in order for the other to be right. But sooner or later I started wondering if there might not be a third choice, a perspective that could hold and reconcile both these opposing viewpoints?
I began to explore the idea of a creative evolution, which to me made much more sense than some kind of creator god suddenly creating everything out of nothing, or some mindless evolutionary force that went through infinite permutations of blind and desperate chance in order to create this miracle of beauty we called life. Couldn’t a divine creator use the mechanism of evolution to create life and order in the universe?
This perspective has evolved for me over the years. As I began to disengage from the dogmas that were sometimes so heavily rampant in both religious and scientific world-views, a new understanding of creator and creation began to emerge, an understanding that implied that we were not separate from either, and that we were active participants rather than passive observers in a constantly unfolding creation. I began to recognize that there is a field of divine intelligence permeating all things, and that new creation happens whenever this divine intelligence steps forcefully into the field of matter.
As I began to explore these questions further, I kept returning to the idea of the galactic superwave. It had a kind of magical mystical feel to it, and touched me in a place where words could not follow. LaViolette referred to the Galactic Center as a Mother Star, the Mayas referred to this creative womb as Hunab Ku. If I wanted to penetrate this mystery I would need the insights of both science and ancient wisdom, and this was the place I knew I had to go.
What was the mechanism for creative evolution, I asked myself, and is there a way we could participate more consciously in this new creation? Equally important, is it possible that we might be experiencing a wave of creative evolution in our own lifetimes which could transform everything in our known universe?
More insights followed, and pieces of this cosmic jigsaw puzzle started to come together. The more I explored this process of creative evolution, the more I realized that we as humans, and we as a planet, are also part of this galactic wave. There is nothing that happens out there which is separate from our own thoughts and intentions. It led me to the recognition that there is a field of light permeating and surrounding us which is directly synchronized to the incoming galactic superwave. I realized that this was an evolutionary wave that could carry us into the cauldron of a new creation – and that the only thing that holds us back from experiencing this is the density of our belief systems.
There is a field of light entering our consciousness now which can transform everything that we have ever known, including this density of subconscious conditioning. As I will share later in this book, we can each have access to this field, and each feel the power of this light. If we can really and truly understand this, then we need no longer perceive ourselves as powerless victims living in a world gone out of control. We become instead the wide-browed creators of a new earth, birthing itself through our wildest dreams!
The evolutionary mechanism begins right in the center of our galaxy. The creation of matter and energy that takes place during a galactic pulse is also an information wave coded with creator consciousness. We as human beings not only inhabit bodies of matter but are also capable of attuning to this creator consciousness. We are a bridge between creator and creation, and as such have a part to play in the new creation.
So what is the next step in the evolutionary mechanism? As successive superwaves emanating from the galactic center periodically move through our solar system, the intensity of this radiation overloads the protective plasma shield surrounding our solar system known as the heliopause. This shield gives way for a moment, letting in vast amounts of cosmic dust that is normally found orbiting outside our solar system in our journey through space.
Most of this cosmic dust is gravitationally attracted to the Sun and planetary bodies, initiating a cycle of intense activity within the solar system. Nuclear activity within the Sun is intensified, culminating in giant solar flares ejecting out into interplanetary space. Occasionally an entire shell of the Sun gets ejected out in massive flares known as coronal mass ejections. These CME’s can reach out and engulf an entire planet including our own Earth, causing extreme magnetic fluctuations, and even what is known as geomagnetic reversals.
In his book, Magnetic Reversals and Evolutionary Leaps1, Robert Felix reveals a connection between peaks in solar activity and the reversal of earth’s geomagnetic field, a phenomenon where the magnetic north and south poles of the earth switch places. A study of ice core samples and fossil history reveals how these geomagnetic reversals are actually a recurring phenomenon in earth’s history. They also reveal the interesting fact that although the period leading up to a reversal is relatively gradual, the actual reversal could happen in a matter of hours or days.
What happens during a geomagnetic reversal? The geomagnetic field of the earth generates a magnetic shield extending hundreds of kilometers out into space known as the Van Allen belts. Just like the heliopause surrounding our solar system is designed to keep out inter-stellar dust as we journey through the galaxy, these Van Allen belts are designed to shield our planet from the intense cosmic radiation constantly passing through our solar system.
However, during a geomagnetic reversal, the earth’s magnetic field collapses, which in turn leads to a collapse of the Van Allen belts. In the absence of this magnetic shielding, huge storms of cosmic radiation rain down upon the earth, hundreds of times stronger than normal.
Thus, in this final phase of the evolutionary sequence, an information wave of high frequency cosmic rays and gamma rays moves through the field of life and matter on our planet. This is the same radiation that started off as a galactic superwave from the center of our galaxy, encoded with the power of creation. Responding to a field of light morphogenetically generated by this cosmic radiation, mutations happen. Some species go extinct. New species get birthed.
Unlike the Darwinian model of evolution which holds that evolution is slow and gradual, this model of creative evolution postulates that these mutations happen very quickly in quantum jumps of new creation. And that there is a field of intelligence guiding this process.

Chapter 3. Geomagnetic reversals
If evolutionary leaps and geomagnetic reversals are linked together, as Robert Felix and a number of other researchers claim, there are indications that our planet may be very close to making its next evolutionary leap. Although scientists cannot tell us precisely when such a shift would occur, there is a growing consensus that it could be soon. Not only is the geomagnetic field of the earth decreasing very rapidly but the actual north and south poles of the planet are shifting quite dramatically, which is another sign indicating that a geomagnetic reversal could be imminent.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is a federal agency created to study oceanographic and atmospheric data. Their National Geophysical Data Center maintains a data set of annual magnetic north pole coordinates going back to the year 1590. In correlating all this data, the NOAA has come to the startling realization that the north pole of the earth is on the move, and that the rate of this movement is increasing exponentially.
During the past 150 years this rate of movement has more than doubled every 50 years. When this report was published around 2010 it was noticed that there was almost as much movement in the 10 years from 2000 to 2010 as in the 40 year period before that, and as much movement from 1960 to 2000 as in the 100 years prior to that. Furthermore, in the past 150 years the pole has been moving always in the same direction, indicating that the earth’s magnetic axis may be getting ready to flip. It is currently travelling at the rate of 55 to 70 kilometers every year in the direction of Siberia.1
More indications for the timing of this shift can be found in ancient mythologies and calendar systems. It seems clear to me that many prophecies and calendar systems were based on a study of cosmic cycles, perhaps even synchronized in some way with the galactic heartbeat.
The Mayan calendar has been on the forefront of people’s consciousness for some time now. Many seem to be obsessed with global cataclysms related to the end date of this prophetic calendar, whatever that might be, without fully understanding the context for this. The Mayas were attuned to a galactic consciousness which they referred to as Hunab Ku. Their calendar, perhaps based on even earlier systems of time-keeping, represents a time when this galactic consciousness would once again intersect with human consciousness. I believe this has to do with the incoming galactic superwave and its direct impact on our solar system and planet Earth.
For the Mayas, the focus of their prophetic calendar was not on cataclysm, doom and gloom, but the possibilities of a new beginning, an event which they refer to as Year Zero. During a travel trip to Guatemala in November 2009 I had the opportunity to meet Don Alejandro Cirilo and his wife Elisabeth Araujo, who represent the Mayan Council of Elders.
They did not wish to be drawn into questions regarding specific dates for the ending of their calendar system. They said, however, that there were 13 prophecies that had been passed down through the generations regarding our journey into year zero, the time of new beginnings for the earth. And they indicated that this would be happening very soon!
When pressed for details about these 13 prophecies, Don Alejandro simply said that twelve of those prophecies had already come to pass, and thus not so relevant anymore. The thirteenth prophecy was still to come, however, and would immediately precede Year Zero. This had to do with three days of darkness. He further added that when we began to experience this event we should not go into fear, simply be grateful to the Creator and celebrate, for this is the time we have long awaited. This is the time when the veils between Creator and Creation would dissolve.
The following is taken from a speech Don Alejandro gave in Santa Fe, New Mexico in September 1999. A specific date for Year Zero was given in this speech, which I have left out, given his later insistence that we not focus too heavily on specific dates:
Heart of heaven, heart of the earth, heart of the air, heart of the water…
Thank you, Father, for having given us life, bless us all, those who are here on Earth. Thank you, Father, bless our people, our mountains, our rivers, our lakes, all that we are, thank you, Father.
Honorable elders, beloved people, you who hear me, I bring this message, and also a greeting to all who hear this voice, here is Wakatel Utiw, Wandering Wolf, the voice of the forest, and the messenger of the Maya, who has shared with the seven races that cover the planet Earth. I have come in fulfillment of the prophecies, that we may all walk together, no group shall be left behind. I am here in fulfillment of this prophecy, carrying this message to all that hear me and to all who love the Earth, to all who love peace, and who love themselves.
We are all living beings. A tree is a life and it is an elder, the same as a human being. A plant, while it is green, is a life. The smallest animal is a life that is part of the life of human beings. The rocks have spirit. The volcanoes and mountains have spirit. The rivers, oceans, and lakes have spirit. They are all children of the Father.
This is why I have come. I am the voice of the forest, the messenger of the Maya. I come to invite you to defend our Mother Earth and see that we continue to love the beauty of this great woman. We are millions and millions of human beings and we are destroying her. We are mistreating her. We are denuding and polluting her. When the Mother Earth is no longer suitable our life will be worthless. We are creating our own misfortune, our own death.
The Mayan Prophecies tell us it is time to awaken, time for the dawn, so that the people will have peace and will be happy. The Mayan Prophecies also tell us…that what we are seeking, what we have to find, at last we have found it. We are here on Earth, where we want to be. This time has come: 13 Baktun 13 A’jau, the return of the grandparents, the return of the wise ones to the measure of time…The time has come. May the people awaken. May they arise…
We do not have much time or life left. We have only (a few) years until the year Zero. After the year Zero there shall be peace… We need to cultivate peace. Let us love one another. Let us defend the Earth, our Mother, and respect our Father. His sacred mandate is among us…
You and I may meet again in another dimension after the year Zero. The year Zero is the word of the Maya… On this day, the sun will be hidden for a period of 60-70 hours and this is when we shall enter the period of the Sixth Sun. Then will you realize that what the Mayans speak are facts and not false preachings…The Mayan priests and astronomers know what is happening and see what shall happen in the future. This is my only message. I do not come to intimidate you. I come to say that we should love one another. Let us walk together. We are all children and we pray that our Father be with us. Thank you.2
Many dates have been offered by many people for this entry into the Sixth sun, this passage of planetary birthing. There is nothing ambivalent about the birth of a child, no questioning about whether or not this has already happened, no endless arguments about what it might look like. When a woman is pregnant we can try and predict a due date, but we can never be sure exactly when the child is born until the birth actually takes place.
Many feel that some kind of planetary birthing is imminent. The Mayan calendar and other prophetic systems may be offering us possible due dates. Recent scientific research may be pointing us in the same direction. But rather than fixating too heavily on dates perhaps we might ask ourselves instead how we can each contribute personally to this transformational process. We are not passive observers but rather active participants in this journey. How do we use the immense power of this galactic wave to co-create the new earth?
Chapter 4. Three Days of Darkness
The prophecy of three days of darkness, as shared by Don Alejandro Cirilo, is found in other ancient traditions as well. I had pondered often whether this was a symbolic statement of some kind, or a literal darkness involving the absence of sunlight, or perhaps something else. When we asked him to expound on this further during our visit with him in Guatemala, he had simply shrugged his shoulders and said he didn’t know. As I continued to research information about the geomagnetic reversal, and its possible relationship with these three days of darkness, new insights started pouring in.
What happens when the magnetic field of the earth collapses? Every living creature on the planet is designed to interact closely with Earth’s geomagnetic field. Some species such as migratory birds, bees, whales and dolphins literally have homing systems in their brains which are directly attuned to this, much like our own GPS systems. All of us, however, depend on this geomagnetic field, not only for physical survival but also for our sense of personal identity.
Our human identity derives from our thoughts, feelings, and memories, held within subtle fields around our physical bodies which some refer to as the etheric, emotional and mental bodies. When the geomagnetic field of the earth collapses, however, so does our link with these subtle bodies, leading to the cessation of our physical sense mechanisms, and a temporary dissolution of our sense of personal identity.
We literally cannot see, feel, hear, smell, touch, taste, think or remember who we are during this time. It is like entering into a dark slumber where the entire hardware of personal consciousness gets re-booted.
In our current stage of human evolution we tend to identify with the body-mind personality because of the powerful sensory input constantly bombarding us, a sense of identity that reaches deep down into the subconscious mind, and even gets imprinted within our DNA. The density of this personal identity, separated from our multidimensional soul identity, is what creates the illusion of duality and separation. When the magnetic field cancels out, all these identifications fall away, opening us to the possibility that when the system re-boots, the brain could be re-wired to function as an operating system for the soul rather than for the illusory ego personality!
It is not so different from the journey of a caterpillar. There comes a stage in its life when a caterpillar dies to everything it has known before. It retreats into a cocoon and dissolves into a soup. It is a time of subjective darkness, where its physical senses cease to function and new DNA starts being produced. This DNA already exists in the caterpillar as genetic potential, but it is only when it enters its cocoon that this becomes activated, leading to the emergence of the butterfly.
Similarly, the three days of darkness may be referring to a time of cocooning, a re-booting of consciousness where our entire subconscious history and personal identity gets obliterated, so that something new can emerge. I believe that this is the gateway to our future evolution as a species. As long as we are conditioned by the subconscious mind, trapped in the density of fear-based responses to life, we cannot directly access our higher self.
However, as the veils of subconscious illusion drop away, our bodies begin to vibrate differently, and became capable of accessing and anchoring the frequencies of our soul. This is what the journey of ascension is about. It is the ascent of matter into spirit, and simultaneously the descent of spirit into matter. It is the awakening of our multidimensional consciousness within bodies of purified matter, with a capacity for conscious co-creation to an extent we cannot yet imagine.
We are currently in a transitional zone, a period of preparation for this transformation of consciousness. It is a time of deep cleansing and purification. We are tired of being caterpillars, but haven’t yet become butterflies. As more light comes in, more shadows get stirred up. And we discover that all the human identities and personal stories that we have carefully built up over the years suddenly start to dissolve.
Many of us seem to be going through this dissolution process now in the form of emotional upheavals, mental chaos, and physical breakdowns – intense anxiety, depression, restlessness, shock, chaos, and pain. Many are going through extreme intensity and turbulence in our relationships, sinking in a quicksand of existential meaninglessness, or feeling alone and adrift in a dark cloud of unknowing. We confront a great unknown, helpless and afraid, feeling our entire sense of identity collapse around us.
We can’t focus, forget where we left our keys, can’t remember names or faces, and wonder if we’re losing our minds. Perhaps we’ve already done so, for all the things we cherished and enjoyed in the past don’t seem so important anymore. We find ourselves wondering what we are doing on this planet. As veils of illusion fall away, reality seems to become more absurd by the day, leaving us with a sense of unfulfilled longing for something we cannot know because it has not yet been birthed.
Our bodies are going through a transition too. We endure physical challenges, tiredness, aches and pains, general toxicity and nervous breakdowns. We cannot keep up with the demands of time, and in fact our sense of time itself is changing. Our immune systems get overloaded as we encounter new forms of disease every day. We experience in our own bodies changes taking place in the subtle bodies of the earth, and it is often exhausting.
On a collective level this same dissolution of identity is manifesting as economic collapse, political unrest, social chaos, and environmental catastrophe. Nothing is certain anymore. We live in a world which has lost its balance, and seems to be spinning rapidly out of control. There doesn’t seem to be a way back out.
What does this mean in the bigger picture? If these are all symptoms of a transitional phase, as we are forced to release personal identities that once felt so safe and familiar, what is it that awaits us on the other side of the cocoon?
Chapter 5. A New Sun
When the Mayas talk about what will happen just before we enter the new world, they say that there will be some days of darkness followed by a new sunrise. As Aluna Joy Yaxk’in shares:
There is a new Sun coming up over an ocean, and there is nothing else… Just the ocean and the Sun…The Maya say they are not really sure if it is a brand-new Sun or just the energy of a new Sun, but they say a new Sun will rise. A new Sun is being manifested in spirit right now. The Ancestors are saying that this new Sun is being birthed into the world… It will take a while for this to manifest physically. When it does, we will be receiving energy in a direct way…1
As with the three days of darkness, there are prophecies of a second sun in many other ancient traditions as well. How do we interpret this in a way that makes sense to us in our modern age of science and reason? There are many rumors and predictions these days about super-dense planets, brown dwarf suns, and indeed entire miniature solar systems blazing their way through our solar system, wreaking havoc in their path. Is this what the Mayas were referring to?
I believe that much of prophecy is based on ancient memories, in which wisdom keepers of many traditions seek to predict events in the future based on cycles in the past. If this is so, what does this double prophecy of the three days of darkness followed by the rising of a second sun mean?
My sense here is that although they may be referring to a literal event we cannot interpret this from a third-dimensional perspective of reality. Perhaps in order to understand what this means we need to first take a journey into the deepest layers of our subconscious mind, into a matrix we might refer to as the veil of illusion.
Eastern spiritual traditions have much to say about the existence of certain veils of illusion which they refer to as maya. A simplistic interpretation of this is to say that the world out there is an illusion, and that the way out of this illusion is therefore to renounce the world. While this may have worked for us in simpler times it is important for us to understand now that the veils of illusion exist within our own consciousness. It is not the world out there that is the problem but our interpretation of this world, based on subconscious structures of programming which keep us trapped in perceptions of separation and duality.
This veil of illusion lies deep within our subconscious awareness, and is literally programmed into the matrix of our cellular DNA. The frequency of this programming keeps us trapped in a third-dimensional perception of reality, which we consider to be the one and only reality. This belief that third-dimensional reality is the only reality is itself the illusion, and we cannot make it through the Great Shift as long as this programming remains within our cells.
Something very interesting begins to happen during the time of geomagnetic reversal. As I said earlier, as the geomagnetic field of the earth collapses, the matrix of our personal identity begins to disintegrate. Our emotional and mental bodies are no longer tightly bound to old patterns of subconscious conditioning.
We begin to unravel the veils of illusion that keep us trapped in third-dimensional density. New potentials of genetic information become activated. This raises the frequency of the energy matrix vibrating the cells of our body, which in turn helps us to perceive realities beyond the narrow limits of our known physical senses. Our consciousness begins to merge with worlds and dimensions beyond third dimensional matter. We begin to anchor the multidimensional frequencies of our soul.
All this happens very quickly during this cocooning period, when our sensory perceptions go into hibernation during these days of darkness. Creative evolution is a quantum process that utilizes the enormous wave of incoming cosmic energy to shape new creation. In the absence of the subconscious conditioning that has kept us trapped within the veils of illusion for long eons, we make a quantum jump of evolution to a new state of biological consciousness capable of integrating the multidimensional frequencies of our soul.
Perhaps we can now interpret this prophecy of the Second Sun in a somewhat different way. Most suns exist as part of a binary star system. Our experience in this solar system is unique in that we only perceive a single sun. But perhaps our twin sun has always existed on a higher octave of creation and we simply have not been able to see it yet!
Perhaps it is not that a second sun enters our solar system during this time of the Great Shift but that our twin sun simply becomes visible to us in this dimension as our senses expand beyond the narrow limits imposed by linear consciousness!
This new Sun is already manifested in spirit, say the Mayas. When it manifests in the physical world we will be receiving its energy in a direct way. We will be able to assimilate this new sun’s energy because our bodies will no longer be subject to the current limitations of matter. Our bodies will be nourished directly from the energy of the new sun.
We will learn to use the energy of this sun to build internal technologies in direct resonance with our higher selves. We will learn to heal our bodies, create new worlds. We will travel freely through multiple dimensions of the universe. We will nourish our bodies directly from the fields of prana all around us. Outdated social, political, economic and religious systems will fall away because they will no longer be needed.
As the veil of illusion dissolves, so does our subconscious matrix of fear, separation and duality. We will experience this planet as one single interconnected consciousness, unified with all things within the web of life. We will discover what it means to experience Creator consciousness within infinite dimensions of Creation!
The Mayas remind us that the new Sun being manifested on the outside is also a reflection of a new Sun being birthed within. This is the soul consciousness being birthed as we pass into the doorway of the new earth! It is the birth of a divine human able to serve as a steward on this beautiful blue and green planet from a constantly flowing well of creative impulse. Rather than reacting instinctively in predetermined subconscious patterns, we will respond in each moment with the full intensity of our multidimensional presence, nurturing and honoring each strand in the web of planetary life.
Whatever is real from the old earth will remain. Experiences that feed and enrich our souls, memories of beauty and love, all these will remain. Nothing is ever lost in evolution. Old structures are simply included and transcended in a higher octave of life. We will experience life in the same dimensions of matter, simply vibrating to a higher frequency of light. We will engage with the world around us through similar personality structures, but harmonized directly to the consciousness of our souls.
This is the goal of creative evolution as we transition into the new Earth.

Chapter 6. Supramental Light
The Mayas tell us that the shift represented by Year Zero signifies the end of linear history and the beginning of a multidimensional experience of time. Our experience of linear time has to do with the way our brains are wired, and the predominance of what we could call the thinking mind. However, as the great Indian yogi, Sri Aurobindo, demonstrated more than a hundred years ago, there are levels of the mind capable of accessing dimensions of reality far beyond the capacities of our thinking mind.
He refers to various levels of the mind, including the higher mind, the illumined mind, the intuitive mind, the overmind, and the supermind. I explore this further in my earlier books and will not go into much detail here, except to say that there are fields of consciousness associated with each of these levels of the mind, and that our perception of reality changes dramatically when accessed from different levels of the mind.
The thinking mind is designed to function within third-dimensional reality, dealing with the mechanics of survival and instinct, our physical orientation in space and time – and that’s all. Our creative gifts, our capacity for joy, our perceptions of higher dimensions, the embodiment of our multidimensional self – all these derive from our ability to access these higher levels of the mind.
Sri Aurobindo and his spiritual partner, Mirra Alfassa (usually known simply as The Mother), spoke often about the descent of these higher levels of mind into our operational systems. Having trained themselves to merge with these higher levels of the mind they were able to sense a new wave about to enter into human consciousness, which they referred to as the supramental force. They spoke of the descent of this force into the field of matter, and the resulting transformation of our species.
They recognized that in previous cycles of time we were able to partially embody the higher levels of the mind, but could not maintain this as a collective consciousness, which time and again resulted in a fall back to the density of physical matter. They felt however that in this current cycle of evolution there was the potential to embody the highest level of unified light, what they called the supramental light, and in so doing raise the frequency of matter itself into what they called true matter. This would represent the birth of creator consciousness within the heart of all creation!
Regarding the human species, they spoke of an evolutionary force that has been pushing us from the animal human stage, which was organized around the instinctive centers of the brain to the human human, organized around thought and reason. The next step in our evolution, they said, is the divine human, where we would learn to connect through our hearts to the frequencies of the soul.
At this stage, our experience of reality would no longer be based on the thinking mind, which is designed to interpret everything through filters of duality, but on the intuitive mind, which perceives reality through direct knowing. Beyond this, finally, was a fourth stage of human evolution, which they called the supramental human. At this stage of evolution we will walk this earth as living embodiments of creator consciousness, expressing our universal identity within bodies of true matter!
I believe that each time the galactic superwave passes through our solar system it provides us with an opportunity to evolve further as a species, and as a planet. It may be that the next species to collectively emerge from the upcoming geomagnetic reversal will be the divine human, an awakened species capable of experiencing the physical world through senses attuned to intuitive levels of the mind, unified with the web of planetary life.
While this could well be the next step in our collective evolution, I feel that those who are ready for it will be given the opportunity to carry this evolution even further. If Sri Aurobindo is right, we will begin to incarnate the supramental light which exists in dimensions beyond time and space deep into the cells of our physical bodies, perhaps for the first time in the 13.8 billion years since the birth of this Universe!

Chapter 7. The Golden String
We are already experiencing the first waves of this supramental light. This light has been guiding our evolution from a level of wisdom and power far beyond what is available to us within the field of duality, and it cannot be held back any more than a caterpillar can resist becoming a butterfly. From this perspective of unified light, everything we have ever experienced in our collective history is part of an inbuilt, soul directed, evolutionary drive. There is no right or wrong, no good or evil. In the words of the poet Rumi, Out beyond ideas of wrong doing or right doing there is a field. I will meet you there.1
My sense is that the actual moment of the Shift will be easy and joyous. As we disconnect from subconscious fields of separation and duality during these three days of cocooning, we will simply not be capable of going into doubt, fear and resistance as we normally tend to do. As subconscious layers peel away, we will be able to use the incoming cosmic radiation to complete our biological transformation. Dormant genetic codes will be activated. The multidimensional presence of our higher self will begin to incarnate through us. The butterfly will emerge!
But if the Shift itself is relatively smooth, the time immediately prior to the Shift could be quite challenging. These are the times we live in, what the Hopis refer to as the day of purification, when all our subconscious darkness is being forced to the surface so it can be released. Surrendering to this alchemical process is not easy, but to the extent that we can understand and trust the evolutionary forces working through us, it will help make the journey a little smoother.
There is a story of a Greek hero named Theseus, and his journey through the labyrinths of Crete in order to find and slay the minotaur. In order not to lose his way through the maze, he carries with him a ball of golden string, which he unravels in the darkness so he can find his way back out.
As we travel our own maze through the uncertainty and chaos of these times, perhaps we need to discover our ball of string so we can find our way through and beyond. Perhaps this larger evolutionary perspective can guide us in the journey ahead, helping us to surrender gracefully to the energies of transformation which invite us now to enter the luminous depths of our being.
As long as we are still trapped in our current experience of duality, fear is an inevitable response to the energies of change. But in the midst of this fear, if we can simultaneously maintain an awareness of the big picture, this awareness can be the golden string that guides us through these tumultuous times.
What if our experience of duality, and all the suffering that inevitably followed, was a necessary phase in our evolution? The higher we want to climb the deeper we have to go. Could it be that we needed to enter into the deepest density of matter, forgetting our identity as creator gods, in order to transform matter itself in our journey of remembrance?
Our addiction to personal ego has led us to the verge of socio-economic collapse, which would drastically disrupt a way of life we have grown quite comfortable with. Our soils and oceans are dying, forests are disappearing, and millions of species are rapidly going extinct. Our own survival is only a matter of time. Unless something changes, we will either go out with a bang in some sort of catastrophic event, or slowly suffocate in our own wastes.
From a soul perspective, however, this level of global crisis is simply providing the intensity needed to propel us through an evolutionary shift. Change cannot happen as long as we are comfortable in our illusions. The evolutionary energy driving us forward is not concerned about individual lives or human timescales. It is concerned only with new possibilities of creation, the immense task of incarnating our multidimensional self within bodies of matter.
That time has come. As creator beings, we are here now to remember who we are, and to radiate our light into the world. We as humans are part of the nervous system of the earth, and our destiny is to serve as cosmic conductors for a unified light so that earth herself can evolve further. Our greatest service is simply in remembering who we are as beings of light. The more we can anchor this light through us, the easier the transformation will be for humanity and the earth.
On a more practical level, it seems to me that the energies of transformation are working simultaneously on many levels at once. Unhealthy economic and social structures need to collapse so that a new earth can emerge. Old technologies must fail so that we can discover the power latent within our own DNA. Limited identities must die for our soul identities to be birthed. Old frequency patterns need to be shaken up so that the new earth can be birthed. When the time is right all this could happen very suddenly and very quickly.
The geomagnetic reversal is the key to this alchemy. Many things would happen simultaneously during this time. As the veils fall away, our current social and economic systems would end, coinciding with evolutionary mutations, and whatever earth changes are needed to reorient the earth to a higher dimensional frequency. An entirely new identity is being birthed.
The Mayas say that when we enter Year Zero it will be impossible to question whether or not this is truly happening. It’s like awakening from a dream. When you are dreaming you can wonder if you’re dreaming, but when you are awake, you know you are awake!
This prophecy of awakening is the golden string that guides us through the maze. If we can trust this evolutionary force, and stay connected with the larger vision, we need not fear the process. Rather, we can allow ourselves to surrender to the ecstasy of birth as these powerful energies make their way through our being.
There is a single luminous intelligence guiding this process, an intelligence we can attune with and become co-creators with. But we don’t have to wait till the geomagnetic reversal. I would like to explore in the following sections of this book how we can begin to access this living field of light right here and now, anchoring it through our bodies to serve the evolution of the earth. It is a field of light I have come to know as Ilahinoor.

“This evening the Divine Presence, concrete and material, was there present amongst you. I had a form of living gold, bigger than the universe, and I was facing a huge and massive golden door which separated the world from the Divine.
As I looked at the door, I knew and willed, in a single movement of consciousness, that “the time has come”, and lifting with both hands a mighty golden hammer I struck one blow, one single blow on the door, and the door was shattered to pieces.
Then the supramental Light and Force and Consciousness rushed down upon earth in an uninterrupted flow.”

Kiara Windrider, MA, MFT, spent much of his early life traveling and practicing vari¬ous spiritual traditions in India. A lifelong interest in environ¬mental healing, peacemaking, and social justice led to a dual degree in Peace Studies and Interna¬tional Development through Bethel College, North Newton, Kansas.
Later, he completed a graduate program in Transpersonal Counseling Psy¬chology through JFK University in Orinda, California, and worked for many years at an alternative psychiatric center called Pocket Ranch Institute, which specialized in healing emotional trauma and facilitating spiritual emergence. He received a psychotherapy license (MFT) from the State of California in 1998. He has also trained in various forms of bodywork, breathwork, hyp¬notherapy, and shamanic healing.
A major interest has been in understanding planetary and cosmic cycles and their relevance to humanity’s journey of awakening. He has approached this study through the eyes of shamans, geologists, historians, physicists, prophets, and mystics. From this research, he has come to the firm convic¬tion that we stand collectively at the brink of a quantum evolutionary leap beyond our wildest dreams.
He is currently focused on planetary healing using a system of anchoring divine light known as Ilahinoor. His greatest wish is to live fully in the wonder of each moment and to help awaken this beautiful planet to her destiny. He has written five books — Doorway to Eternity: A Guide to Planetary Ascension, Deeksha: The Fire from Heaven, Journey into Forever: Surfing 2012 and Beyond, and Year Zero: Time of the Great Shift, and Ilahinoor: Awakening the Divine Human.
Please visit his websites Kiarawindrider.net and Ilahinoor-usa.com. Kiara trav¬els frequently and is available for conferences, seminars, and retreats around the world. Suggestions and comments are always welcome and may be addressed to kiarawindrider@gmail.com. He can also be found on facebook.
