Sun, Moon and the Chakras of Gaia
A recent newsletter from SpaceWeather.com highlighted two items of interest. First was the discovery of a new "Radio-Active” Sunspot. During the final weekend of March 2010, sunspot 1057 emitted radio bursts, detected by shortwave receivers all over the world. Even tabletop shortwave receivers translated the Sun's shortwave energy burst into sound energy. Some described the radio solar bursts as sounding like a roar. To me, the recorded sound clip sounded like a waterfall, crashing into a redrock alcove from a precipice above.
As humans, are we ready for what some call “Contact”? The subject of extraterrestrial or nonphysical-contact with humans on Earth looks great in the movies. Too bad Hollywood has elected to portray those who might contact us as evil and destructive. Despite my belief that there is nothing to fear in contact, would I rush out to welcome ET if he or his spiritual cousins landed in my backyard? If direct, large-scale contact occurred, would pervasive human fear lead to chaos on Earth?
What if our non-physical friends and spirits were hosting shortwave radio broadcasts targeted toward amateur radio enthusiasts here on Earth? Even if widely publicized on scientific websites, such events would raise only a ripple in the great unconscious. If such a contact did recently occur, what might be the message to Earth or its people? Alternatively, might these shortwave bursts be a nonphysical "conditioning exercise", allowing humanity time to prepare for contact that is more meaningful? Perhaps The Masters bypassed humanity in favor of direct radio communications with Gaia, as we call the Earth when acknowledged as a living entity in her own right. Across her surface, the Earth can accept, bend and reflect radio waves. For example, shortwave radio energy bounces off of both the Earth and its electrically charged ionosphere. This skywave phenomenon allows humans on one side of the Earth to use low energy, two-way, wireless voice transmission to converse with similarly equipped humans on the other side of the world. It is like having a mobile telephone with nearly unlimited terrestrial range.
After the recent radioactive sunspot event, former enthusiasts all over the world are dusting off, and tuning in their old shortwave receivers. If the Earth receives another radio show featuring that big star, our Sun, will they be ready to listen in? If collective consciousness on Earth mimics the ways of the superorganism (an organism consisting of many organisms), we might yet crack the Sun/Gaia code and discern its message and meaning to Earth and humanity.
Also from SpaceWeather.com was an explanation of the first full Moon of springtime in the Northern Hemisphere. According to folklore, this full Moon has a special name - the Worm Moon. It signals the coming of northern spring, a thawing of the soil, and the first stirrings of earthworms in long-dormant gardens. In the reflected “Worm moonlight", we can see the awakening of the landscape. If you click on the accompanying image of the Moon, you will open an alternate, larger image. There, one can see evidence of the Moon Chakras, each one seen in reflected earthlight. In the lower right corner, we see humankind, as represented by an airliner in the evening sky.
According to the Daily OM website, the Earth exhibits both a physical body and an energetic body, complete with a chakra system identified by ancient mystics and modern scientists alike. She has her own life force and her own path of unfolding, separate from us, but including us. There is general agreement that Gaia has seven major chakras distributed evenly across her body and connected to one another via two lines of energy that intersect at various points on the earth. Earth's First Chakra is located at Mount Shasta in Northern California; the second is beneath Lake Titicaca in South America, and so on across the face of the Earth.
Often, I travel on Interstate I-5 from Southern California to Southwestern Oregon. Even during drought years, Mt. Shasta retains a high mantle of white snow. Its position as home to the First Earth Chakra parallels and reinforces its role as a terrestrial weather creator.
On one visit, clouds shrouded Mt. Shasta down to its flanks. Otherwise, on each visit, that sacred mountain has always shown me something new. To view the Mt. Shasta as I saw it on three different visits to Mt. Shasta, click on her individual thumbnail images. Larger or alternate views will open in a new window. The first pair of images shows a cloudbank rolling toward the mountain, and a view of its peak, levitating above the cloud tops.
The second pair of images shows Mt. Shasta on a clear winter day. If you look closely, you will see a dark green energy being emerging from the forested area. Look for a character similar in appearance to Oscar the Grouch, just behind the tip of the tall pine tree in the foreground. The being’s snow-white right arm extends down to a hand. Its three fingers form a cursive capital “M”. Perhaps one of our astrologer friends can help us understand why an energy being is emerging from Mt. Shasta and making the sign of Scorpio with his right hand. Do energy beings even have hands? Some viewers will see a mountain, snow, rocks and trees. Others will see new energy, as it exists all around us.
In the third pair of images, we see a ring appearing on the snowy slopes above the tree line. Had it been a lava vent, ejected material would have accumulated at its lower rim. Instead, its circular structure and slightly raised center suggest a meteorite or comet strike. If comets, asteroids and meteors carried water and life to Earth, might they also supply vortexual energy to the Earth Chakras?
In addition to her seven major chakras, Gaia has minor chakras and other vortices of energy, all of which are significant to her life-energy system. As with any living thing, all these energy centers need caretaking. Just as we may heal ourselves through our own chakras, we may heal and support Gaia through hers.
According to Wikipedia, the Gaia hypothesis is an ecological hypothesis proposing that the biosphere and the physical components of the Earth integrate to form a system, which maintains both climate and biogeochemical conditions on Earth in a preferred homeostasis. The hypothesis promotes viewing the Earth as a single superorganism. Having already passed many predictive tests, Gaia theory now moves from pseudoscience into the realm of scientific theory.
As the weather warms in spring, honeybees may swarm from their nest or hive. After laying eggs in a number of specially prepared “queen cups”, the old queen leaves the nest. Soon, she and her escort of scouts and workers alight upon an area of nearby foliage. As the swarm protects the queen beneath a blanket of their bodies, scouts confer on the best place to start a new hive. Using a form of dance, individual scouts tout the worthiness of their preferred new sites. Scouts visit each of the competing sites, then return to promote the one that they determine is best. The selection process may take days, hours or mere minutes, depending on the level of scouting completed prior to emergence of a swarm from the nest.
Once they reach consensus, the scouts and workers escort the queen to her new home. Meanwhile, back at the old nest, the forty percent of honeybees who stay behind elevate a new queen and carry on. Upon final departure, the swarm disentangles itself as each individual bee takes flight. In an aerial ballet that looks like pure chaos to a human observer, the mass disperses rotating vortex of bees. Soon, they are gone, spiraling away toward their new home. Using creative intelligence and some good dance moves, one superorganism of bees gives birth to another, right before our eyes. into the air, and then comes together again as a
In concert with Nature, the swarming of honeybees often coincides with the Worm Moon. The Sun’s rays warm the springtime air by day. Bright moonlight illuminates the pathway of those still traveling to the new nest at night. After watching a swarm of honeybees morph into a superorganism before my eyes, I believe that such events reflect the beneficent vortexual energies of our Sun, Moon and the Chakras of Gaia.
