You have heard the expression: "Don't confuse the messenger with the message." Most often this applies to when someone receives bad news. It's not the mailman's fault. He is the innocent messenger of a message.
By the same token, the deliverer of wonderful news is also an innocent deliverer of messages. You are not to be agog at the mailman. You are not to be agog at anyone. You can like, appreciate, yet remember who is the originator of the message and who is the deliverer of the message. The deliverer hands you the messages. He is not more even when he delivers the best news in the world.
Certainly, you don't ignore the mailman. You simply acknowledge that he dropped a message for you in your mailbox. In the case of My messages, you might as well adore the mailbox as to adore the one who delivers My messages to you. The delivery man is to be respected yet not adored for being the delivery man.
There is a tendency to impart exaggerated qualities upon the ones who deliver My messages. As much as you want to adore the mailman, it is not so good for him that you adore him. He is just delivering the messages on My behalf. He has a nice role, yet it is a humble one. I am within him, and I am within you.
There is the sense in which you are to appreciate everyone. There is the sense in which everyone is My messenger, and everyone is I. Everyone delivers messages on My behalf. Love the messages and not the delivery man so much. This is advisable on your behalf, and this is advisable on behalf of those who deliver messages to you.
The message is admirable. The mailman may be a great mailman, yet he does not write the messages he delivers. He did not think of them. He drops the messages off.
There is the sense in which We can give thanks to everyone for everything. Thanking is one thing. Aggrandizing is another. When you aggrandize the mailman, you are also liking the idea of coming closer to the Throne, so to speak. You are already close to the Throne.
When you turn a movie star into something more than he, the person, really is - when you turn him into an idol - you are fantasizing. When you turn a spiritual person into an ideal, you may well be concretizing your dreams the same. Adulation is adulation. It is not real. It is built on a presumption.
Much falling in love in the world is writing your own movie. It is fiction. You project your dream.
On Earth, a man may be a great sage, yet he is a man. A man may be a great Holy Man, and yet he is a man. He may be a perfect Holy Man, and yet he is a man. Learn from him. Value his knowledge. Value his goodness, and don't go crazy over him. He has his role, and you have yours.
Love goodness. Love intelligence. Do not put any man above yourself. Embrace the gifts a speaker gives, yet do not idolize the speaker. Serve, help, give, yet do not give up yourself. Surrender to Me, if you please, I Who am your True Self, even as I am present in everyone.
When you feel you have the best, the most, the most superlative anything, you may be leading yourself down a garden path. Superlatives are of the relative world, and so are finite. The man before you is not your discovery. Love is your discovery, love without tying anyone up, including yourself.
Be One with Me and Everyone.

I have been asked to put out this information by the group that I channel. They call themselves "The Constant companions", and have given me instructions to write down something they have titled "the manuscript of survival". Some of the information contained in it may sound dramatic, but I do not think it comes as a surprise to anyone who have opened their eyes to the world we are currently living in. Even though their choice of words may seem harsh at times, I experience them as loving beings that are here to guide us trough this dramatic re-birth of this wonderful planet we call earth.
Here is the first part of the manuscript:
This book will contain much information flying in the face of conventional wisdom and indeed knowledge. Much will be said of it´s origins, but let us just say that we come from a galaxy far, far away as they say in the movies. This is a place that contains a vast deposit of knowledge, and we have been designated as carriers of that knowledge. Now the time has come to start sharing it with you in order for the planet earth to start spinning in the right fashion. There is no way around it, you as a species has mismanaged this planet in such a way is heading for total destruction. The greed for power has corrupted your minds in such a way you are prepared to destroy life itself in order to make a few extra bucks. The greed is so profound it has already taken the lives of so many beautiful creatures, and you yourselves are at the brink of exterminating yourselves in order to obtain that next dollar. You have gone too far, and now you will be stopped dead in your tracks, and we do mean this in the literal sense. There is no way of going forward in the direction you are heading, the only result is certain death. We, on the other hand, has been given the power to direct you in the way of survival, by encoding you with the right information that will help you redress the wrongs you have been doing, and that will help you all clean up not just your act but the whole ecosystem you are on your way to destroy. This information will be ridiculed at first, of this we are well aware. So also the channel. But you do not have a choice in following our instructions. If you do not, you will suffer the consequences, and they will come swiftly indeed. Consider this as a warning, not as a threath. We are not violent people, we are here to redress the harm that has been done in order to guarantee the survival of the human race. Make no mistake, this planet has been build to survive anyhing, but you as a species is infinitely vulnerable and as such you are the ones who will perish. Not the earth. This conludes the first installment of this saga.
On the channel´s request, we wil start this slowly. After all, the information contained in this manuscript is of a nature far removed from the knowledge she previously has been part of, and we will honor her wish in this.
Much has been said about the nature of energy, but there is still so much to learn. The human race has contented herself to use only a small part of the energies available to them, and they have chosen to do so in a manner greatly destructive to the planet. Burning fossilized fuel is by no means the best way of ensuring a sustainable future, and this has now taken it´s heavy toll on the planet. In addition, keeping to these limited resources has ensured that only a fraction of the populace would benefit from this. Not only from the profits, but also from the power and control it gives them over the rest of the human race. Needless to say, their time of domination is coming to a close, and rapidly so. We will in this manuscript convey all of the secrets that has been hidden from mankind for such a long time, namely those that tells about how to access the unlimited supply of energy that is at all times surrounding you planet. In other words: free energy for all. This may sound like an old hoax, but the truth is very profound one.
All over the universe, not only the small part that you are familiar with, there runs an incessant stream of mutable energy, energy that is ever lasting and as such and unending source of power for everyone to utilize. The only problem with this power that in order for it to be tapped, one needs to be in a clear state of mind. By that, we mean that this energy cannot be acccessed by anyone trying to exploit it for their own purpose in the same way that the petrol companies have been ruling this world of yours for such a long time. In other words, only those of pure intent will be allowed to come into contact with this energy, and it will never be allowed for it to come into the hands of those corrupted by greed and hate. The time has come now for the portals to open, and to allow you as a human race to peer into this door and see what is hiding inside. Just remember, whenever someone from the corrupted race approaches, that door will slam shut again. We say this in order to make it clear that this is a source of energy only to be used for the betterment of all, not for the manipulation of a few.
For many years, your scientists have been studying everything from the deepest recesses of space in to the tiniest comportments of a human cell. They are still scrathing their heads and wondering where the true answers lie, but they have for too long looked in the wrong direction. Now we will, with the help of this channel, start to instruct them directly so they will finally see what has been hiding right in fromt of their noses. We say this both in the literal and figurative sense, as there is so much more to this world of yours than meets the eye. You as a species has been blinded and have not have neither the ability nor the wish to see anything else than what has been put out for you to see, but now the veils are lifting once and for all. Whether you like it or not, you will all soon be able to see everything so much clearer, and for many that will be almost too glaring to even contemplate feasting their eyes on. The truth is not pretty, and for many it will take a long time to ingest, but ingest it you must or you will all fall by the wayside. Evolution waits for no one, and now you are about to take a great leap into the unknown, whether you like it or not.
Many brave souls have already taken that leap, and they will indeed be the wayshowers for the rest of the flock. Many will go into denial, and try to ridicule not only the message but also the messenger. Let us just say that their efforts will be futile, and they will hang their head in shame and repent as soon as they manage to see the error of their ways. We choose our words carefully, and the likeness to the language your so-called spiritual leaders use is no coincidence. They themselves have been instrumental in leading their flock astray, and they will be called upon to redress the wrong they have been doing for generations. We do not say this as a threath. Again, we come in peace, but we come with a very clear intent, namley that of cleansing this world of all of the residue that has been accumulated from all of these generations of mismanagement and greed.
From the earliest of times, man´s quest for information has driven him forward. In the olden times, this information was delivered freely from the powers that be, and all were considered equal. However, it did not take man a long time to develop into duality, and as such the quest for power came to be. In addition, manipulation by outside forces - we will come back to these more specifically later – heightened the exodus into the straits that since has led the humans astray from their real course. The real course is fast and straight and pure, and now the time has come for mankind to return to these shores and steer away from the abyss that looms straight ahead. Much has been prophesised about this beforehand, but let us just say that this process will be very, very different from what the doomsayers have been calling for. Yes, it will be a violent one, but it will also open the eyes of mankind in order for all of them to finally regain the ability to see the light where before they could only see darkness and despair. We are aware that many will take these words as only puffs of spoke, but they will have to take into consideration certain actions that will soon take place in their vicinity. We refer of course to that lifechanging event that is narrowing in on your planet. It is already looming on your horizon, but this is far from the aforementioned abyss. In fact, it heralds the breaking of a new dawn, and as such is something to be celebrated. Beware of those false prophets who will try to turn everybody´s heads and send people into fear. They will be many, and their words will fall on many sympathetic ears. Avoid these prophets of doom, as they are the only ones that will cause harm, not the approaching harbinger of light. We conclude today´s missive by stating that in order for mankind to save herself, they need only to stop listening to the human voices expressing fear, anger and hate, and start listening to that quiet voice whispering in their own heart. That is the voice of reason, and the voice of hope. That is all for today.
The manuscript of survival - part two
23 August 2011
Now we would like to start going into more details.
The surface of your planet is covered with a grid of energy. This energygrid has been kept out of bounds for humanity for a very, very long time. But now the desicion has been made to let you reconnect. We use this word very deliberately, as you as a race was connected to this powergrid at a much earlier stage of your development. You had in fact an extensive use of this vast supply of power, and this, combined with the extensive knowledge you were privy to, fuelled the evolution of some of the most remarkable societies ever inhabiting this planet. Some small remnants of these societies still remains here on earth, but the preserved ruins of these magnifient communities can only reveal a small fraction of the ingenuity and science that these peoples employed. They were of such a high vibration, they were in total harmony not only with nature herself but also with the harmonics of the universe, and as such they had an unlimited access to all the energy and information available not only locally but also celestially. As we will show more clearly later, this gave them power to evolve far beyond what you today as ”modern man” has achieved. The reason for this is simple. Once you were tampered with and introduced to duality, ego took precedence and then the downhill slide started in earnest. In his lust for power and control, man soon lost grip of the eternal world he once was connected to, and all the information and knowledge hitherto accumulated slowly but surely seeped away. As we have stated previoulsy, everything you need to survive is literally right in front of you, but you as a species have been disconnected from this information because you are so deeply entangled in the duality and quest for power and control. In other words, once man discovered greed, everything else fell away, and this has dominated your brains for far too long. Now this implanted deficinecy will be taken away, and you will once again be connected to the whole. This will be a process that may seem overly dramatic to many, many of the souls currently inhabiting your planet, but it is necessary. Not for the planet, she has been programmed to survive anything, but for you as a species. You will become extinct in a very short amount of time if you insist carrying on the status quo, and we are well aware that there are those out there that will do so, but they will be taken away as it were to a place where they can continue their self-imposed misery.
The details that needs to be conveyed might be many, but the most important part is the forementioned one. Once humanity is finally released from the shackles of duality, much will happen in a very, very short time. Remember, this is not a process of inventing and evolving, rather it is a process of reconnecting and remembering. Once you have passed that initial stage of shock and awe, you will realize that all you have to do is to return to your natural way of being and drop all of the false images that have been planted in your consciousness. Deep down you are all aware of this, and now some of you have already awakened to this reality. Many will follow in your footsteps soon, and then this world will take a turn for the better in the matter of a few short weeks. We are aware that this will sound improbable to you, but it is a stated fact. We have all the knowledge and technology and energy at our disposal that will eliminate all traces of the destruction you have created on this planet in an instant, and we are prepared to do just that as soon as you let go all traces of your old ego-based structures. If they do not go away, you will. End of story.
Back to the powergrid that is already in place on your planet. It is composed of a kind of superstructure involving more than the current dimensions you as a being can perceive. Think of it as a latticework of interconnected strings, forever humming away with vibrations of pure energy. Your scientists have started to see some of these strings as a part of the research they are doing into the so-called dark matter, but they are still very far away from discovering the real outlay and effects of these structures. Think of it as a web of living tissue, constantly communicating with every other part of itself, sending energy and information back and forth in a constant stream. When you tap into this system, you also tap into the vast vault of information already stored there. Information that is free to use for anyone and anything connected to it. There is no charge, and therefore no way to misuse this information energy to manipulate others. The rest of all beings, in fact the whole set of physical structures that compose your planet, is already connected to this stucture, you are the only ones still left out in the cold as it were. Imagine what you will be able to do once you are firmly reconnected to this grid!
Remember that you have the same original encoding as us from the beginning, namely that of eternal life, but as you became disconnected from this grid, your system was reprogrammed. Now you have an inbuilt self-destruction mechanism that will kick in at a designated time, and you will in a well-defined way start to exterminate your physical body. This may take years, or it will happen instantaneously, but the result is the same. Your physical body cease to function, and you die. The knowledge of your own mortality is what engenders the fear that governs all of you. That is why you are on an eternal quest for youth, health, money and power. You think these factors in some way might stop the inevitable decline into death, but nothing you do can stop that. The only thing you can do to escape this, is to let go of all the old programs, but that is no easy task. Once you do that and get reconnected to the source energy, you will live forever. Not in the same physical form that you currently inhabit, but in the form of a stable energy that will be able to recreate itself in a physical body and then stay in that body for a very, very long time. The purpose of being in a physical body is to evole into a wiser being, and the confinement of a physical body makes the lessons more effective. You need the friction of a physical body in order to evolve further and further, hence the importance of the human race. You are the star pupils in this evolution, but you have all decided to collectively attend the wrong school. Hence the need for reprogramming. Never forget, you are meant to be here on this planet and evolve into the most beautiful beings in the universe, but in order for you to do that, you need to let go of the disinformation you have been fed for far too long. That is why we have come, and that is what we will do. If you refuse to listen, you will indeed have to suffer the consequences.
The existence of humans is a long and complicated one. You evolved from seeds planted by the star beings many, many generations back. These seeds were given a programming of multiplying, and slowly the advent of the so-called human civilisation was invented. You took to the task of organizing yourselves in groups, and these groups maintained a structure of co-operation and co-existence in harmony, not just with yourselves but with the environment around you. The planet was a happy place, and all beings on her prospered. The experiement was a success, but then someone else intervened. This ”someone else” was a group on entities from a different solar system than yours. They had depleted their own resources after falling from grace, and now they needed a new playground on which they could play out their evil schemes. We realize that this sound like hogwash, to use a word you are all familiar with, but this is the truth. Remember, your planet was originally designed as a haven, a place where beings in a physical body could evolve, and help us all understand the limits and possibilites of being inside a physical body. Much has been said about this subject before, let us just add that the beings that put you here in the first place did so under the protection of All there is, the highest form of intelligence that exists in any shape or form troughout all of the universes. Yes, we use the plural, as your own universe is only a fraction of what exists beyond your vision. As we were saying, you were put here with a special purpose, namley to investigate the endless possibilites that a physical body have to experience themselves and their surrounding trough the senses. Remember, there are many, many other forms of sentinent beings alive. But most of them reside in a non-physical form and as such they have a limited vocabulary of interaction with others.
Troughout man´s history, there have been many examples of seemingly out of the blue forward leaps in understanding and knowledge. Your scientists have found traces of ancient civilizations that harbored very, very advanced knowledge, knowledge that since has been supressed and fallen away from your common heritage. Much of this knowledge, in fact all of it, came from a source not located here on this planet, but it was brought forth from civilizations outside of your known universe. That knowledge helped the human race evovle into what is now called modern man, but it has also helped you to make so many wrong desicions. The reason for this, is as we have already stated. The ground work upon which we build the first human societies have been corrupted by a later influx of other intelligence, intelligence that has been used to manipulate humans to such a scale that they have all but forgotten their own origins. You as a collective have been taken back to the dark ages, so instead of developing further into contact with us, you have been kept deliberately in the dark and seemingly left to your own devices. Nothing could be further from the truth, as you have at no time been left alone, not by us, and certainly not by those dark forces who have been controlling you for these last centuries. They have almost succeeded in wiping out all traces of ancient memories, memories from the time when you were all connected closely to the source, but some vestiges remained, and now these seeds have been awakened again. The knowledge that you have been kept in the dark for far too long has finally seeped out, and it is spreading like wildfire. Even if the dark ones have tried as hard as they could, even their strong hold on your souls have finally lost their grip, and now the truth will come out in the open for all to see. It will be a momentous day indeed, but for many, it will be the worst day of their lives. The reason for this is easy to understand, as many will have a hard time digesting the fact that they have been kept as slaves in a system designed to benefit a chosen few, destroying the planet and the lives that live upon it in order for these few men and women to live a life in absolute luxury whilst almost half the population on the planet is living in poverty, war and terror. Now the time has come for humanity to open their eyes and face the truth, no matter how grim it seems, for remember, you will also see the light again for the first time in a very, very long time, and believe us when we say that the light has returned and cannot be turned away yet again.

Even when I’m sick and depressed, I love life. Arthur Rubenstein
Occurring on August 13 in the United States and August 14 in Australia, the Aquarian full Moon is set to bring all kinds of realizations, challenges and gifts. As so many new and full Moons have been, this one is yet another doozy.
The Sabian Symbol for the full Moon is Aquarius 21: A Woman Disappointed And Disillusioned, Courageously Facing A Seemingly Empty Life. This Symbol is a challenging one and it's energy will have many people wanting to realign their lives. I have long felt that this Symbol would better be read: A Woman Assessing Her Life, as the 'disappointed and disillusioned' part of the degree could then manifest as many good things that the person has to be grateful for. There are challenges, for sure, and they can be big ones with this degree, but this 'Woman' (and this, of course, can relate to men), can find meaning and purpose in their life by focusing on what is possible, what is worthwhile and worth striving for. Other things in life may have to be left behind, walked away from, forgiven and released. 'Disillusionment' can be a positive thing as one wakes up and removes the veils that have been in place, perhaps for a very long time.
The following are the Keywords and Cautions from my book The Sabian Oracle: 360 Degrees Of Wisdom:
Keywords: Breaking through illusions. Facing stark reality with hope. Loneliness and depression overcome. Positive outlooks. Counting one’s blessings. Looking towards the future. Having to battle through relationship losses while maintaining a sense of self and purpose. Turning points reached. Having a belief in miracles. Choosing joy.
The Caution: Wallowing in failure. Not seeing the joy and beauty of one’s life. Accepting defeat. Feeling like all is lost. Bitterness. Walling one’s self off from others. Not trusting people. Finding nothing to be happy about. Feeling deserted and alone. Not letting go of the past. Injuries. Infertility. Incurable “dis-eases”. Unrequited love. The loss of the partner. Staring into space. Being a sad, old person.
The Karmic Condition (the degree before) of the full Moon is a beautiful degree - Aquarius 20: A Large White Dove Bearing A Message. As this degree describes the moments leading up to the full Moon, this image describes one of the gifts of this lunation. Doves have a very strong spiritual message. The following is my commentary on this degree from my book:
‘A Large White Dove Bearing a Message’ shows messages of peace and love. The ‘Dove’ is a symbol of innocence, gentleness and affection; also, in art and in the Scriptures, it is the typical symbol of the Holy Ghost. When Jesus was baptized, the Holy Ghost descended in the shape of a ‘Dove’. It also symbolizes the soul and as such is sometimes represented coming out of the mouths of saints at death. ‘Doves’ are a symbol of inspiration and divine guidance. A caged ‘Dove’ signifies the human soul imprisoned in the flesh and held captive during the period of mortal life. They can represent peace and in this Symbol the ‘Large White Dove is Bearing a Message’. The ‘Dove’ brought to Noah a bough of an olive-tree as a sign that the deluge of wrath that was unleashed by the flood was over. Further ‘Doves’ are said to be able to perform miracles with their ‘Messages’.
Keywords: Being seen as a savior or one who needs saving. Blessings delivered—all will be well. Celebration. Somebody who brings blessed relief. Issues of hope and salvation. The Covenant. News. Announcements. Peace movements. The Rainbow Warrior. Utopian idealism. Olive branches.
The Caution: Staying with the assumption that things will never improve. Refusing solace. Shooting the messenger. Not trusting the good things in life. Not being content with any message that’s relayed. Insincere messages caused by the pain of not facing the real truth.
What are the 'messages' that are around you and being delivered to you personally? Are you sensing that life is trying to tell you something? Are you a messenger of peace and love for others?
The degree of the Sun at the full Moon could see some acting irrationally, or perhaps feeling shaken loose by what's going on in the world. The Symbol is Leo 21: Intoxicated Chickens Dizzily Flap Their Wings Trying To Fly. This Symbol sends a signal to remember who you are - don't limit yourself - but don't get going in a tizzy fit that sees no progress but only an 'intoxication' that limits true progress. On the other hand, we need more 'ecstasy' more boundless enjoyment of our lives and our selves and perhaps a bit of flapping around is what's needed? It could be that you're noticing how some are 'getting out of it' and not being truly grounded or treating their life with respect and honor.
Keywords: False courage. Inexperience. Trying to do something beyond the bounds of experience or possibility. Getting “out of it” in order to escape something. Getting all het-up over tiny or illusive prospects. Alcohol and drugs and the allure of escapism. Drinking binges. Ecstasy. Hangovers. Attempting to do the impossible.
The Caution: Giddiness, light headedness, unwanted side effects. Getting nowhere. Inability to ground things in reality. Making a fool of one’s self. Intoxication that inhibits seeing what's really possible. Alcoholism and drug habits. Losing reality. Mindlessness that confuses or misleads. Going too far too fast. Forgetting who or where you are.
There IS light at the end of the tunnel, but first I need to share with you the planetary configurations behind the extreme tension shown in this full Moon. This is shown by Mars, Uranus, Pluto and the asteroid Juno being in a rather tight grand cross, which can be challenging, upsetting and life changing, to say the least.
Mars is on Cancer 7: Two Fairies (Nature Spirits) Dancing On A Moonlit Night. This can show people in relationships that are not really grounded in reality, are fanciful, or, it can speak of people not really taking notice of what's happening in the 'real world'. It's interesting for Mars to be on this degree as it speaks of 'A Moonlit Night' (and Mars happens to be on this degree for the full Moon).
Keywords: Usually invisible astral realms. Reconnecting with the feminine. Dancing. Avoiding harsh reality. Slipping away somewhere unnoticed. Seeing what’s usually hidden. Romances that have difficulty in the real world. Dreams and fantasies. Sharing common ground. Full moon celebrations. Moonlight. Sunlight. Couples inspirited. Women celebrating. Other realms. Invoking fantasies. Moon dances.
The Caution: Losing one’s self in emotional dreaming. Not seeing the reality of the other you’re “dancing” with. Lacking responsibility. Escapist attitudes vs. serious decisions. Relationships with no earthly reality or substance. Something too good to be true. Finding it hard to connect with others.
They dined on mince, and slices of quince, Which they ate with a runcible spoon; And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand, They danced by the light of the moon. Edward Lear
It seems that we have to see through some of the bleariness of the Sun on the Intoxicated Chickens and Mars on the Two Fairies degree in order to get to the bottom of what's going on around us.
Opposing Mars is Pluto. This opposition can bring about anger, eruptions, irritability and it can show people being pushed a little too much. It can also show people wanting to push, either because they are used to being in charge or bullying or derailing others, or, there can be a sense of extreme frustration with the inequities of fairness that we're seeing in society. Tensions can become explosive, especially if things have been suppressed and kept hidden and buried.
Pluto is on Capricorn 6: Ten Logs Lie Under An Archway Leading To Darker Woods. This speaks of journeys into the unknown, getting past the past, tenacity, stamina and energy preservation, thresholds, archways, entrances and dark forests. It's dark, impenetrable places, the unknown and the "unknowable", delving into the subconscious, memories and thoughts that lead into deep or strange places, gateways, fallen trees.... it can feel like your path is blocked or obstructed. Where are things leading to? What are you objectives? What (and where) is this path that you're on?
Uranus, which is being squared by Mars and squared by Pluto, is on Aries 5: A White Triangle Is Seen; It Has Golden Wings. This can show the desire to rise above situations, to ignore what's really going on, or, to transcend worries. Uranus on this degree can show some losing the plot, forgetting about the solid things in life that are important and it can lead all the way up to the 'space cadet' that's just out of reach and cutting off. Of course, this can be a bit of a saving grace with so much gnarly stuff going on. We just don't want to cut the cords from reality as we could be cast adrift if we try to 'ascend' past the place of safety and sanity!
Juno, the patroness of marriage, relationships and legal unions, could be bringing some light relief to situations as it's on a fabulous degree that speaks about creative manifestations, imagineering and coming face-to-face with our own thoughts. The Symbol is Libra 5: A Man Watches His Ideals Taking A Concrete Form Before His Inner Vision. What is the 'vision' that is being made manifest for you?
Keywords: Vivid confrontations with one’s objectives. Creative visualizations. Imagining things. Meditations and affirmations. Ideas crystallized. Putting things out into the universe. Making things happen. Seeing things take shape and form. Clairvoyance. Film making. Writing and getting published. The power of manifestation. Solidification. Builders. Sculptures. Dreams.
The Caution: Being dissatisfied with what was thought to be the true ideal. Feeling that things are “written in stone” and can’t be changed. Calcified situations or emotions. Neurosis. Focusing on the negative thereby bringing the negative.
So, with Mars on Cancer 7, Pluto on Capricorn 5, Uranus on Aries 5 - we have a very tight 'male energy dominated' t-square that is made into a grand cross with Juno at Libra 5. This places great stress on both the masculine and feminine energies around us and I believe that watching our thoughts, affirmations and beliefs is a very big clue as to how we can heal what's going on.
Venus is asking that we restore spirit, return to our natures, perform rituals and see the larger picture. It seems to be asking us to drop the 'disappointed and disillusioned' view and take on a larger, more holistic view of what's going on. The Symbol is Leo 20: American Indians Perform A Ritual To The Sun.
Keywords: Restoring spirit. Rituals and worship. The desire to return to nature. Shining through one’s life, not through social credentials. Sweat lodges. Drum-beating. Celebrating a unique heritage.

It's instructive to note that the last new Moon was on Leo 8: An Activist Is Stirring Up Discontent By Spreading His Revolutionary Ideals. We are seeing that 'activist energy' stirring things up alright - and it's happening all over, especially in England at the moment.
Now, the good news is that the Moon's north node is trining Venus, the Sun and Mercury from Sagittarius 22. This can give the individual a feeling of strength in amongst the chaos that is currently emanating. This is because the trine can bring in a realignment with what is possible on a personal level. The trick here is that people have to feel that they have a purpose, a contribution, a place and a belief that what they do is worthwhile. This can indeed by tricky as the Moon's north node is on Sagittarius 22: A Chinese Laundry.

Social inequalities and prejudice can be around as the Moon's north node has just passed over Sagittarius 23: A Group Of Immigrants Fulfilling The Requirements For Entering A New Country. This, very obviously, relates to issues around immigration, immigrants, refugees and finding a place to be, to be accepted and settled.
Finding that sense of peace and acceptance (in a real sense) can be a trial when so many people on the planet are in such desperate straits.
Mercury, which is currently retrograde, is on Leo 27: Daybreak - The Luminescence Of Dawn In The Eastern Sky. This speaks of the gradual realization of possibilities and new opportunities, a new day dawning, transitions between darkness and light, scenes of awe and amazement, dawning awareness, awakening, looking to the future and luminescent light. Dawn meditations can help and can dispel the darkness that is currently pervading many people's minds, hearts and realities.
Further, we would do well to watch our thoughts as Mercury is currently being opposed by Neptune. Neptune can bring confusion and a lack of communication, but it can also bring to light our visions, hopes and ideals. Neptune is on a degree that speaks about the end civilization (at least as we currently know it). It gives the feeling that things are cracking up to crack open. The Symbol is Aquarius 30: Moonlit Fields, Once Babylon, Are Blooming White. Neptune is currently painting a somewhat different picture to our current 'civilization' that discriminates and marginalizes so many people on this planet. Neptune, on a higher plane, can bring about our ideals of a good and worthwhile life, but we may need to make some major adjustments to what we perceive to be our 'entitlements'.
This is a long blog post and it needed to be. I'm reminded of the quote: Please excuse the length of this letter, I have no time to be brief (anonymous writer, but I feel I could have written it myself :) ) We really have so much to think about and be mindful of at this time.
Jupiter may be delivering the most sublime message of all at the moment. It's on Taurus 10: A Red Cross Nurse With Warm Sympathy. This speaks of spreading unconditional and compassionate understanding of our own and other people's situations, emotions and realities. Taking care, being sympathetic and reaching out to others with a helping hand are major messages here.

At the time of writing (July 31, 2011) we are at the beginning of the fifth day of the Ninth wave and then also rapidly approaching its end and the completion of all of the Mayan calendar on October 28, 2011. There are three more days (over a time period of three regular months) yet to go as the effects of the Ninth wave intensify in accordance with its high frequency of transformation to unity consciousness. While we may all have ideas of how this final transformation is going to take place no human knows the exact details of what is going to happen. We are sitting in the waiting room of the cosmic doctor and we do not know how He or She is going to treat this patient.
Throughout the shift points of this Ninth wave various initiatives have been taken for inspirational events and towards its culmination not only are events being planned for the midpoint (October 21, 2011) and end-point (October 28, 2011) of the seventh day, but also for the Gregorian date 11:11:11 (November 11, 2011). Even if the latter date is not based on the Mayan calendar, but on numerology, it gains its real meaning from this calendar and is the day for celebrating that we have made it through the end times and into the new world to be created afterwards. I encourage all such initiatives celebrating shift points, especially if they educate people more broadly in the true meaning of the Mayan calendar and its various days and nights. However, I also feel that there is a need for events that emphasize the work that we need to do at the current time. For this aspect of the process I feel that there is one shift point that deserves our full attention and this is the beginning of the sixth night. The reason is that the beginning of the sixth night on September 23, 2011, and its following few days, means a convergence of an energy shift in the Mayan calendar and the passage of the comet Elenin between the earth and the sun (and, if you like, the autumn equinox as well).
This little comet Elenin has attained an immense amount of attention on the Internet and is sometimes associated with more or less dire predictions. Thus, its name has been read as Extinction Level Event although it with equal justification may be read as El +Lenin (God + Anti-capitalist revolution) or Ellen In (the names Ellen, Helen or Elaine mean light) or El enin (God +Nine backwards referring to the completion of the divine plan of Nine Underworlds). All that we really know about it is however that it is synchronized with the end of the Mayan calendar on October 28, 2011. As part of this the Ninth wave, also called the Universal Underworld, brings a cosmic context to human life in a way that has not previously been the case. Human beings are in other words in the Universal Underworld about to become citizens of the universe, a consciousness shift that has led to a heightened interest in all things extraterrestrial. Yet, maybe this shift is primarily about us living up to our cosmic origin and the Cosmic Convergence is an invitation to fully experience this at the beginning of the sixth night. Thus, the word Cosmic is here more meant in its Mayan meaning as the all encompassing intelligence.
I feel it cannot be emphasized enough that the Mayan calendar is an expression of a truly cosmic, but also divine time plan. It is from this that we know that it is purposeful and benevolent. Many who fail to recognize that this calendar describes a divine plan developed by waves of seven days and six nights, may risk to end up in hopelessness or a belief that the world will come to an end. (The lack of connection to a divine plan is the reason that the false pop culture end date of the Mayan calendar, December 21, 2012 often has become associated with such thoughts.) It is the divine background of the plan described by the Mayan calendar that explains that nothing in the universe happens by accident. Everything plays a role for the fulfillment of the purpose of the cosmic plan, making it meaningful despite the hardships and challenges that we may expect in the time ahead. From such a perspective we may wonder what God is communicating to us through the comet Elenin especially in terms of what there is to do at the beginning of the sixth night, but also in the seventh day of the Ninth wave. After all, comets are prophesized to be part of the language that God is going to use to communicate with us in the end times.
Another thing that we know about the Ninth wave, and its sixth night and seventh day in particular, is that it brings about a polarity shift to unity consciousness as is illustrated in figure 1. Elenin may then also be seen as a messenger of the finality of this shift. Today, we often hear the idea of an impending pole shift, which goes back to psychics like Helena Blavatsky and Edgar Cayce. Yet, most, if not all, professional geoscientists would argue that there is no reason to expect a pole shift in the near future. Most likely then, since Blavatsky and Cayce were not familiar with the kind of polarity shifts that the different waves of the Mayan calendar bring about, and had no language to describe them, they simply mistook such shifts for an electromagnetic pole shift of the Earth. In favor of such an interpretation is for instance that Cayce predicted what he called a “pole shift” for the year 2000. This as we now know did not happen, but what did take place was a polarity shift of consciousness as the Eighth wave of the Mayan calendar was activated in 1999 and most likely this is what he saw in his trance state and mistook for a pole shift.
Time of activation
(Fig. 1) Different polarities of consciousness created by the five highest waves of the Mayan calendar.
Polarity shifts in consciousness take place in synchrony at several different levels of the universe - cosmic, galactic, heliospheric, planetary and human - at the times of shift points in the Mayan calendar. The Ninth wave that we are currently in is carries the polarity shift that creates unity consciousness. We then need to ask what we are to do, if anything, if we as individuals want to be part of this polarity shift and remove all dark filters from our minds. After all, we only have the direct power to transform ourselves and then hope that it spreads along the lines of the great Indian leader and sage Mahatma Gandhi, who said: “Be the change you want to see in the world.”
What, more specifically, would this imply for the Cosmic Convergence? A general rule of the Mayan calendar waves is that its night and day energies relate to one another as inner preparation to outer manifestation. This may especially be true when it comes to the last such pair of energies in the entire creation scheme, the sixth night and seventh day of the Ninth wave starting September 23 and October 11, respectively. This alternation between energies would mean that the sixth night should lend itself favorably to inner work like prayer, contemplation or meditation, whereas the seventh day would lend itself better to global ceremonies, which externalize the inner changes that have been brought in the sixth night. Ceremonies and rituals in a sacred context are powerful tools to externalize the rearrangement of our inner landscape.
The ninth wave
This diagram indicates the motion of the "wave" of energies belonging to the ninth wave and the related dates as to when these come into play. The relationships of the comets Honda and Elenin to the Seven days and six nights of the Ninth wave of the Mayan calendar. A is the comet Honda’s closest distance form the Earth. B shows the time of passage of Elenin between the sun and the earth and C is its closest distance to the Earth.
At point B in figure 2 I thus feel that the comet Elenin signals to us that we should surrender our egos to the all encompassing cosmic intelligence and also that this is our last chance to be part of the polarity shift to unity consciousness, or if we like, Oneness or God Consciousness. This will also be a test of the integrity of today’s evolutionary leaders, not to mention “2012 experts.” Elenin is a final wake up call that will be heard also by the many who know nothing about the Mayan calendar or how this expresses the divine plan. After all, the sixth night is the last energy when we can turn inward to prepare for the polarity shift that the wave is bringing. As the seventh day starts the new polarity is locked into position and generates its final manifestation.
This finality is partly why the Cosmic Convergence of September 23-26, 2011 is different from previous events, such as the Conscious Convergence of July 17-18, 2010, which also set the intention to manifest unity consciousness. In the Cosmic Convergence it will also be necessary to make an effort to see this intention manifested. This is a time for connecting with the divine, introspection and soul searching. A connection with the divine can be accomplished by intense prayers or by other spiritual practices. To stay aligned with the cosmic plan and be part of its polarity shift in consciousness I would then also like to suggest that the following commitments become the foundation of the Cosmic Convergence:
1/ Committing to consistently let divine guidance rather than our egos decide our actions and the direction of our lives.
2/ Declaring our independence from the dark side including surrendering the right to use the dark side to fight the dark side in others. http://www.youtube.com/user/forunity#p/u/2/pkVHYQF
L2Xk (In my own understanding the dark side is not some kind of eternal dark force, but anything that results form the darker filters of the lower waves as can be seen in Figure 1)
The Cosmic Convergence is thus fundamentally about making sure that we ourselves as individuals are the change that we want to see in the world. This may be very uncomfortable if we have much of our past unprocessed. It is then clearly not about putting the blame for the state of affairs on our planet on other people or forces. It is about taking personal responsibility. I think we here need to go deep into ourselves and see where we as individuals have contributed to hurting others or the nature of our planet. We have become quite used to complaining about the violence and wars in the world or the threats to its natural state. Yet, it is one thing to complain while secretly blaming others, or simply “the way things are” and something totally different to see how we as individuals have made choices that have contributed to the global deterioration. The idea here is to see and acknowledge such instances and choices in our lives and yet not get stuck in guilt, but rather find a path to healing through a corrective course of action. Since usually we have suppressed or numbed ourselves to any personal responsibility for the course of events on the planet we may actually have to pray for being reminded of such instances in the past. Hence, if we truly want to create a polarity shift in ourselves and so for instance are willing to embrace the commitments above it is a natural consequence that we do the necessary soul searching as we recognize how we may have failed to live up to these commitments in the past. If we do not do so aspects of the dark filters will continue to dominate us and the polarity shift will not be total.
The Cosmic Convergence is thus about the participants taking responsibility for the transformation to unity consciousness and doing so in a committed way. Granted, these may be difficult tasks, but again, if we are not to bring about this shift to unity consciousness in ourselves, who will? Hence, the Cosmic Convergence is really about providing an opportunity for us at least to commit to irreversibly bring about a shift in consciousness polarity in ourselves. While it may be difficult to immediately live up to such a commitment it will if it is taken seriously have powerful consequences On the benefit side a thing to ponder is that in order to receive the appropriate guidance into the new world it is possible that such a profound commitment to unity consciousness is indeed necessary.
On my own part I will at the occasion of this event be participating in a peace festival in France together with Mayan and Hopi elders (http://www.lothlorienfestival.com/EN) where we will meditate around it. Because of the nature of the inner work required I feel that the Cosmic Convergence may equally well be observed individually or, ideally, in small groups that provide a safe environment for sharing. I recommend that we process our past and ourselves in the present moment in an air of introspection, healing and corrective action drawing on the collective energy of the observance of the Cosmic Convergence around the globe.
A common component in it may be the lightning of candlelights as a sacred enactment of these commitments. Participating groups and individuals in the Cosmic Convergence may of course chose their own expressions, but the commitment to the transformation to unity consciousness should be the common denominator. In the Cosmic Convergence it is for us to surrender to whatever will be required from us. To live up to our commitment The presence of the comet Elenin will give a natural connection to the cosmic dimension in this event and at the same time add to our experience of a common destiny of humanity. It will be in this large scale context that we need to make the commitment to be part of the polarity shift to unity consciousness. Every person who makes a such makes a great difference and spreads the light and the hope to those around her. This may be all the more needed if indeed the times will be challenging to our comfort. The Cosmic Convergence, September 23-26, 2011 is meant as a solemn and humble event allowing people of unity consciousness to connect on a very deep level wherever they are on our planet.
I feel this is really the last chance of humanity and that the day of reckoning is here. I feel that a commitment to the polarity shift to unity consciousness is not only a passport to the new world to be born, but also the only hope for the world to survive. The dark filters have been ruling humanity for millennia and provide no way out. If human beings do not make such a commitment we really have no reason to expect that the world will survive. I thus want to encourage everyone to do their utmost to spread this message and encourage others to solemnly make a commitment to shift to unity consciousness. We are the ones that we have been waiting for. And it is entirely up to us. If we are looking to see our greatness, we should see it not in denial, or at all cost avoid anything that may cause fear, but in the courage to face squarely what we have done to this creation as it manifests on this earth. The Ninth wave indeed brings a field change on the cosmic level that we may become part of, but it will not happen without a deep and serious commitment from the heart of our souls.
