The Book of Revelations in the Bible is one of the hardest to read and understand. On face value it seems that the Earth is going to go through a tremendous testing time involving much devastation and death before the New Jerusalem can come into being.
I was first led to try to decipher it in 1991 when the book, ‘Revelation for a New Age’ by Dorothy Elder came my way. It was the stage in our development when the seventh chakras were about to open for my husband and myself, and here was this book comparing the
story of Revelations to a more
description of what happens to us in the Spiritualising process as the first seven chakras open.
Because of our own experiences we could relate very closely to that theme – it described the various states of emotion we had gone through to get this far, and it gave us high expectations to the wonders that would reveal themselves at the opening of the ‘ultimate’ chakra, the seventh.
However, as the years have gone by we have discovered that the opening of the seventh chakra is NOT the ultimate; it is only the BEGINNING. There are many more chakras involved, and more ‘bodies’ to develop - beyond the physical, etheric, emotional and mental - until the final resurrection of awareness that is described in the book. We have learned that the story of Revelations can be interpreted on three levels: literally, Spiritually and then from the Divine Level where the final Truth is revealed.
Reading it again this year, 2001, we have at last been able to piece it together – with surprising results. As in all Spiritual development we do not understand AT THE TIME, but LOOKING BACK – the complete understanding comes.
Right from the beginning we have kept a chart of the various stages involved in this Spiritualising process. Jim and I progressed at exactly the same rate but attained each stage in entirely different ways – letting us see that there is not just ONE way to achieve this. Often we did not recognise the symbology used for the various happenings but faithfully recording them just the same – it was only when I read Revelations this year that I understood what the various terms meant: ‘Drink of the fluid of my life’; ‘I am the door’; ‘The two-edged sword’; ‘The empty vessel’ and many more
Our seventh chakras opened in March 1992, the 8th in May; the 9th in October; the 10th on the 27th December of that year.
The negative 10th chakra finally closed down on the 8th Feb 1994 which heralds an alignment of the four lower bodies; the physical, etheric, emotional and mental - that activates the Christ energy point in a 5th body, the Christ Body which merges around the physical body in its protective energy bubble. The 6th April that year heralded the activation of the 11th chakra and the merging of the 6th body, known as the Causal Body. Then twelve days later the 12th chakra was activated creating the 7th body – known as the I Am Body, to merge. It was also that month that the first of our Spiritual Development classes began, involving the 12-week course for Level 1 – our World Task was commencing, although we did not know that at the time!
On the 13th June 1994 we were asked,
‘Will you now make a commitment to do My Work without any interference from any quarter, and only follow My Words?”
We readily agreed to - for we had great trust and faith in this now.
We were once again led back to learning about the book of Revelations and on the 16th a message came through to our learning group:
I come to tell you that the information you seek about the book of Revelations will help you all greatly. You have been learning about the perfecting of the human body – all of you are on the way to attaining this. Those of you who are a way in front will encourage the others to dispel their doubts – for you are all going to see what you would term as ‘miracles’. These are NOT, in reality, miracles – they are simply the right use of the Universal Law – that of Love.
On the 29th June 1994 we were told,
‘IT IS THE BEGINNING, THE BIRTH PROCESS TAKE TIME.’
At that time we understood that we, because of our Spiritual work, had created a pyramid-shaped energy field around ourselves and were waiting for ‘the capping’ to take place – ‘for no pyramid was complete until the capstone was put into place.’ We were under the misconception that it would take the usual 9-month process that our human birth symbolises – but no, things kept right on happening after that, taking us on still further. We realize now that it is a SEVEN-YEAR event in this process of attaining the Divine Body – just as the first four lower bodies take seven years each to mature.
Even with the human body, physical birth is actually the END of a seven-year cycle preparing the Spirit for a new life. Then the next three bodies: Etheric, Emotional and Mental take seven years each to come into maturity. At age 21 we are the perfect energy package to then stand on our own two Spiritual feet and start our Spiritual quest, having been shaped and moulded by our physical experiences – whether they were positive OR negative.
The next three and a half years of our development, from 1994 till 1997, involved much physical, emotional and mental work. It also included removing the magnetic field from either side of the spine and around the energy bubble in order for the kundalini energy to rise. That then started a whole new process of filling with the Fluid of Life and producing what They called the Light Being Egg, then the eventual emergence of the Light Being. Later a Divine Egg and a Divine Being. This confused us at the time, but later we realised that the matured physical and Light Bodies were merely two stages involved in eventually producing the Divine Body; just as there are the two stages of the conceptus, then the embryo as the foetus forms – not SEPARATE beings, but STAGES of maturing the one being.
At the half-way mark we were led to truly understand the story of Genesis in the Bible; that the Garden of Eden was a state of mind. That man is influenced by TWO Gods initially – one of this dimension of Earth whose influence we must grow away from, and the Creator God who is always drawing us on, helping us to find Him while here on Earth.
Physically, we had to overcome every negative facet of our natures, which included overcoming every fear we had regarding money and security – a very challenging time! Our bodies were also being worked on, and all past memory of illness being wiped from our cells – that involved a deal of physical discomfort.
The second half of this seven-year spell was much easier. A lot of the predictions started coming true, we also changed our place of residence and went to live at our promised Eden, creating a wonderful meeting place for our classes – which were now on three levels and had attracted several hundred people over the years. Our family were all taken care of, just as promised, leaving us completely free to carry on our work. Abundance started flowing in from all sides and peace was established in our hearts. There were still challenges, of course, but they were more easily dealt with, for we realised now that each one was a learning process – not a PROBLEM any more.
Over the years of 1999 and 2000 we realised that we were undergoing an initiation process. We commenced the 8th Body by activating the 13th, 14th and 15th chakras, and on the 29th July 1999 we were told that we were now onto our Universal Task – the third stage. First stage is overcoming your personal task; mine had been to exercise unconditional love, Jim’s to trust in the Unseen. The World Task involved our service to humanity with our free development classes. This next stage, I feel, is picking up the threads of our Spiritual Development where we left off prior to agreeing to come here; much training had to be involved to allow us to undertake this next level.
Finally, over the last few months we have been led to learn as much about Nature, the human body, the mind, and the brain parts and functions in order to understand the mystery of the Trees in the Garden – as portrayed in the story of the Garden of Eden.
Obviously the map in Revelations is NOT about the opening of the seven chakras – although that is PART of it; or about the activation of the seven bodies – although that is also PART of it. These are, instead, two stages LEADING to a third stage which includes PRODUCING the New Jerusalem for ourselves. Therefore, Genesis and its story of the Garden of Eden is a state of mind, whereas Revelation is a state of BEING.
On the higher level of understanding this book I believe that it tells us in symbolical terms about the role of the chakras and the rising of the kundalini; the parts of the brain that are activated in the process; and subsequently the parts of the body that are transformed in this attaining of a heavenly state while here on Earth. I also believe that those who are READY are about to experience this transformation to act as way-showers for all the other Light Beings - who will also achieve this state of being within the next eleven years. It is what we have come to Earth to do!
Last month I was led to read Dorothy Elder’s book once again, and of course – after EXPERIENCE – you recognise so much more! It would be helpful to have The Book of Revelations handy so that you can more readily associate with what follows. It begins:
This book is the record of the events that Jesus Christ revealed. God gave him this revelation in order to show his servants what must happen very soon. Christ made these things known to his servant John by sending his angel to him, and John has told all that he has seen. This is his report concerning the message from God and the truth revealed by Jesus Christ. Happy is the one who reads this book, and happy are those who listen to the words of the prophetic message and obey what is written in this book! For the time is near when all these things will happen.
In chapter 2 the seven stars are the Truths from the angels that come to help us in this transformation process, they help us with visions and it is up to us to interpret those visions in relation to the experiences we have had.
The seven lampstands are the crowns of the 7 bodies, located in the brain.
The seven churches represent the seven qualities of the bodies that must be attained before Divinity can be achieved. Dorothy lists the qualities attributed to the 7 chakras – but that LEADS TO the higher qualities of the 7 bodies. For example:
1. Hard work (spiritual) and patience, perseverance. Recognising your weaknesses and turning away from them. Which develops FAITH.
2. To endure suffering – whether that be physical or mental, and to GAIN from the experiencing. Which develops CREATIVE POWER.
3. To focus ONLY on God, the most High. Which develops the INTELLECT.
4. To raise our moral standards and not be swayed by the physical world. Which develops TRUE LOVE.
5. To develop our Spiritual awareness to Divinity. Which is leading us to SEEK GOD.
6. To attain the Opening of the Door that cannot be closed. Which develops WISDOM.
7. To reach the neutral state WITHOUT complacency. Which develops UNION WITH THE DIVINE in all HUMILITY.
When Dorothy talks about the 7th step she quotes a couple of pieces about the 7th chakra from the Eastern teachings:
(from The Secret of the Golden Flower). When the pupil keeps the crystallized spirit fixed within the cave of energy (the brain), and, at the same time, lets great quietness hold sway, then out of the obscure darkness a something develops from the nothingness, that is, the Golden Flower of the great One appears. (This is actually to do with the opening of the 7th Seal, rather than the 7th chakra).
The thousand petalled lotus flower opens, transformed through breath energy. Because of the crystallization of the spirit, a hundred-fold splendour shines forth.
Dorothy adds: The Golden Flower is the crown of Revelation.
The reason I have highlighted ‘crystallized spirit’ and ‘breath energy’ is because we were presented with two gifts recently, both made of crystal. One was a dolphin – which is about consciously breathing in manna. The other was a six-pointed star – perfected man CRYSTALLIZED into being, which is what our personal Shift is all about.
Chapter 4, verses 2 to 8: At once I was in the Spirit, and lo, a throne stood in heaven, with one seated on the throne! And he who sat there appeared like jasper and carnelian, and round the throne was a rainbow that looked like an emerald. Round the throne were twenty-four thrones and seated on the thrones were twenty-four elders, clad in white garments, with golden crowns upon their heads. From the throne issued flashes of lightning, and voices and peals of thunder, and before the throne burn seven torches of fire, which are the seven spirits of God; and before the throne there is as it were a sea of glass, like crystal. And round the throne, on each side of the throne, are four living creatures, full of eyes in front and behind: the first living creature like a lion, the second living creature like an ox, the third living creature with the face of a man, and the fourth living creature like a flying eagle. And the
four living creatures, each of them with six wings, are full of eyes all round and within.
When you understand that each stone mentioned has a certain quality, and with knowledge of Shamanism you learn that animals also have certain qualities – this piece becomes very much easier to interpret. What this vision means to me is that it takes great COURAGE (Jasper) in our seeking THE TRUTH ABOUT ETERNAL LIFE (carnelian) to achieve unity with the Godhead, and that once we accept our true IMMORTALITY (Emerald) the task is made easier – for we understand that there is no death and that we WILL attain this; no matter WHAT life appears to throw in our way. That to attain immortality involves developing and working with the ‘powers’, both positive and negative – represented by the 24 elders in white and wearing crowns: PURITY and ACHIEVEMENT.
She states that Charles Fillmore describes that to reach superconsciousness we must develop 12 centres. He calls them centres of action and they are situated in the body at ganglionic centres, with the I AM on His throne in or on the top of the head.
As we grow in consciousness these 12 powers are developed and are in perfect balance when we reach our goal of Oneness. He suggests that the 24 thrones represent these 12 powers, and their opposites – which we have to overcome in order to attain. He then likens the names of the 12 disciples and their respective qualities in the Bible as being the qualities that WE attain on the way to Oneness.
They are listed as Faith, Strength, Forgiveness, Love, Joy, Beauty, Understanding, Devotion, Harmony, Loyalty, Breaking down the barriers and Unity.
We agree with that as being the things you have to achieve as you activate the 12-chakra system involved with the 7 bodies.
However, on the higher level, we learned about the central nervous system, which does not exist in isolation: it must be connected to every part of the body. In all there are 43 pairs of nerves joining the central nervous system with everything else. Of this number 12 pairs (total 24) go to and from the brain itself. These 12 pairs are directly involved in this Divining process.
The lightning and thunder, I believe, is to represent the huge power that is involved in this.
The 7 lighted torches - our 7 bodies, all perfected.
The sea of glass like crystal – our ability to bring into physicality that which is our Spiritual belief.
And the four creatures represent the four stages we achieve in the balancing of the four lower bodies:
OX – unaware man, the plodder.
MAN – coming into the realization of our Abilities.
LION – aware man.
EAGLE – Spiritual/Divine Man.
I feel the 6 wings enable us to gain Spiritual power to achieve this by using our HUMAN abilities COMBINED with our Spiritual ones; in numerology 6 is about removing obstacles and attaining joy and bliss.
In the last piece I wrote,’ The Third Tree’, we learned of the importance of the Medulla Oblongata. Now in Dorothy’s book I found this piece that she quoted from Yogananda:
The Spiritual force is in the medulla oblongata at the base of the skull and is connected with the centre of the forehead which, when that point is activated, causes the aspirant to become all seeing, all knowing, all-powerful. He describes it as a luminous sun, with a dark round spot inside it and a star inside the dark spot that can be seen when there is concentration on the third eye.
Dorothy then quotes: The third eye, when opened indicates that the pituitary and pineal glands have joined forces.
The pituitary and pineal glands certainly do join forces when the third eye is activated at the energizing of the 6th chakra – but at that point we definitely do not become ‘all seeing, all knowing and all powerful’ - that is a stage much further on in our development.
It is interesting that the site of the 6th chakra is in an area that is medically known as ‘the silent zone’:
Frontal Lobe. The ‘motor lobe’. Situated at the front of the head. The precise motor area, which controls muscular movement, is only a narrow band of cortex at the back of this lobe. The band moves from the side of each lobe up to the top and down into the central fissure between each hemisphere. Each region of the body is linked with a part of this band. Stimulation of any portion of the band will always cause a muscle, even a particular muscle, to twitch in response in the appropriate bodily region. Progressing along the band from each side of the brain to the centre, the bodily areas involved are the mouth, including speech, the face, eye, neck, thumb, fingers, hand, wrist, elbow, shoulder, trunk, hip, knee, ankle and toes – in that order. The amount of band involved is certainly not proportional to the size of the
body controlled by it; the hands and fingers use as much of the band as the remainder of the arms plus the legs and trunk. Digital skill is correspondingly more advanced.
In front of this motor band lies the pre-motor area. Its stimulation does not ever lead to the twitching of a single muscle, but to a more co-ordinated movement of a whole area. Presumably this area affords general control whereas the motor band affords greater precision. The remainder of the frontal cortex is not only far larger but far more mysterious. Called the silent zone, great quantities of it have sometimes been cut away or severed, as in tumour operations, to leave the patient remarkably unimpaired. A small nick in the motor cortex and there is immediate partial paralysis: a huge carving up of the silent cortex and, although personality is involved, notably mood, criticism, drive and concentration, functional ability is scarcely modified.
As we learn to USE the third eye to assist us in activating the rest of the chakra system so it will affect the personality traits mentioned – LIFTING our moods, REDUCING our criticism, IMPROVING our drive and concentration.
In Chapter 9 verse 13 it says, Then the 6th angel blew his trumpet. I heard a voice coming from the four horns of the golden alter which is before God. That immediately brought to mind a photograph from ‘Behold Man’ of the corpora quadrigemina – four small eminences on the dorsal side of the brain stem, arranged in two pairs. They are relay stations for auditory and visual impulses. Centred above them is the pineal body (medically termed ‘the seat of the Soul’). What also amazed me was that the actual photograph has distinctly golden tones!
The voice said to the sixth angel, “Loose the four angels who are bound in the great river Euphrates”.
It is explained in the book that the great river Euphrates was one of the four rivers that had their beginning from the one river in Paradise or the Garden of Eden and so has the qualities of that one river that flowed there. I believe that the River Euphrates is symbolic of the spine and Holy Spirit using it as a highway to reach all cells, nerves, energy centres of the body and mind in an effort to transform the body into a body of light, which develops as we impregnate the cells with the Spiritual essences from God. The kundalini power at the base of the spine does just that as we grow in wisdom, love and understanding of God.
If we look on the Euphrates as the spine, then the ‘four angels’ are the medulla oblongata, the pons, the mid-brain and the thalamus – which are all anatomically linked and work together; the brain stem CONSISTS of these four - and the brain stem is the junction between the spine and the brain.
Medulla Oblongata – contains the vital cardiac respiratory and vasomotor centres. Also connections of the cranial nerves to muscles of the face, organs of the heart, and the vestibular organ, the sensory and motor supply to the organ of the chest, also the abdomen.
Pons – connects the two hemispheres of the cerebellum, and serves as a pathway for many important motor nerves.
Midbrain – contains reflex centres for vision and hearing.
Thalamus - relays all sensory impulses to the cerebral cortex; its lower part the hypothalamus, regulates the activities of the internal organs through the autonomic nervous system.
9:15 And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year for to slay the third part of man.
That one intrigued me till I worked out the timing – looking back in my journal ‘a day, and a month, and a year’ took me to the 13th April 2000. We had just learned that our Tree of Life was now fully activated, and on the 14th I experienced something very strange: it was as if all the systems in my body just STOPPED for a long instant. When they ‘restarted’ it was as if everything was in reverse! From that we learned that now not only the magnetism of the body/energy field had been reversed, but also the electrical system had now done the same. That was the opening of the 6th veil for us.
Now, from Revelations we learned that this event ‘to slay the third part of man’ meant that the reversal of electricity in the systems had caused a set number of body cells to cease their operation.
Chapter 11 describes the ‘two witnesses’. And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand, two hundred and three score days (17 and a half days short of three and a half years), clothed in sackcloth. These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.
I looked that date up in my journal and discovered that we had just learned, after having been directed to read Genesis, that the Garden of Eden was a state of mind. How appropriate that this should happen mid-way through the 7-year process when things were going to get a lot easier because of our higher understanding! I don’t think the sackcloth represents poverty; rather HUMILITY, which is very much the state you come to as these Truths are revealed.
The two olive trees are the olive-shaped medulla oblongata, and the two candlesticks – or as one Bible version puts it, the two lamps, representing the pons - because the pons controls the muscles of the EYES – LAMPS! Here is where the amygdala and the hypothalamus also show their roles: the Lord of the Earth is the Dimensional God – who provides us with the illusions that our senses relay to our brain.
Pain perception may not begin to be possible in the foetus until around 25 weeks. This is when nerve fibres from the brain’s central coordinating organ, the thalamus, make connections with cells in the cortex.
The pons, together with the midbrain that sits above it, activates the muscles of the eye. The midbrain, along with the rest of the brain stem, is one of the relay stations for pain signals coming from the body to the brain. A portion of the midbrain called the periaqueductal grey area initiates signals that trigger the release of natural painkilling biochemcicals to block the upward passage of pain messages from injured tissue and dampen the sensation of pain.
The thalamus, often considered the threshold of consciousness, is the first relay station for sensory input from the eyes, ears, and body, passing a crude translation of those signals on to the separate regions of the cortex that process information from each of the senses. At the same time, though, the thalamus is signalling the amygdala, which plays a key role in emotional memory. This route, shorter and quicker than the path through the cortex, produces an emotional reaction to sights, sounds, tastes, and touches well before the cortex has had time to form a conscious, rational opinion. An even more potent emotional response is evoked through the sense of smell: signals from the nose bypass the thalamus and go directly to the amygdala, a short cut that explains why the aroma of frying bacon can take you right
back to Sunday morning breakfast from your childhood.
Dorothy points out: It is interesting that Zechariah 4:3-5 has a like description of the two olive trees or the two witnesses. ‘And a second time I said to him, “What are these two branches of olive trees, which are beside the two golden pipes from which the oil is poured out?” He said to me, “Do you not know what these are?” I said, “No, my lord”. Then he said, “These are the two anointed who stand by the Lord of the whole earth”.’ The oil referred to, I believe, is the kumdalini or the Holy Spirit.
The rising of the kundalini is essential in order to block that shortcut to the amygdala that the Dimensional God uses to by-pass our reasoning powers; instead causing us to REACT to all that our five senses promote – usually in fear and negativity.
The hypothalamus is the commander, as it were, of the body’s autonomic functions, producing the physical reactions of anger, sexual arousal, or fear in response to signals that come from other parts of the limbic system and the cerebral cortex.
As we attain Divinity the roles of the amygdala and the hypothalamus will be reversed and their influence will then come from the Omniscient God – just as certain organs in the body reverse their roles in an instant when the baby is born in order for the baby to operate in an entirely different world.
In the same chapter the measuring rod is mentioned: The visioner is told to measure the temple of God and the altar and those who worship there. Since the temple referred to is our own temple of the Holy Spirit, it would seem that the need to measure our consciousness level is necessary before the mystery will be revealed to us. Perhaps the spine must be at a certain level of development before the force can reach the higher state of consciousness. At the third level of Truth I feel this measuring of the spine and temple is to ensure that it is strong enough to receive the next boost of energy at the time of resurrection.
Chapter 12 describes a woman ‘clothed with the sun and the moon under her feet and upon her head a crown of 12 stars. And she being with child, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.
Dorothy Elder expands: We know from ancient mythology that the sun (masculine) and the moon (feminine) depicted together indicate wholeness, completion, perfection. This woman is luminous and has a crown of 12 stars. So we have the sun, the moon, the stars. Twelve signs of the zodiac, it is said by astrologers, must be completed before we can gain illumination. This tiara would indicate that the consciousness has been completed. (Could those 12 stars be the 12 chakras all fully energized?)
Now woman is, of course, indicative of the female the intuitive, the spiritual, the feeling side of our being. We are both male and female and birth of the child brings forth an androgenous being.
The feminine side of our nature brings forth the divine. And men and women both have this capacity. “In the beginning male and female created He them.” And we were created in the image of God, so God, being both male and female, gives birth to a Divine Child, who although designated male in our scripture, is both male and female, being a facsimile of God.
On the 8th April 1998 I received this writing, which says the same thing:
When a balanced state of being is achieved, then comes the removal of the magnetic field, which allows the original cell to come into Its role. Yes, this glow within can be seen by the seer – and also SENSED by those who do not see. It is the seed or the egg of the Divine One who comes safely locked within your human form, seeking the ultimate expression of existence on your Earth plane. It cannot come in any other manner. The beauty of this is that both female and male forms have the ability to experience this Immaculate Conception within themselves. Now BOTH can experience the joys and trials of conception, growth, labour and fulfilment in producing the Perfect God-child. Each human frame that has the spirit within contains this potential act - if, and when, they find their connection with The Force. The human body is the egg, the Spiritual force from without – the ‘sperm’. The
Earth is the womb. Parenthood can be a burden or a joy – but THIS Child is conceived and nurtured in pure Love; and in Joy and Love will it be fostered by the host.
12:13 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having 7 heads and 10 horns, and 7 crowns upon his head.
And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.
And she brought forth a man child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron; and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne. And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she had a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and three score days.
DRAGON is associated with new beginnings and growth. Prosperity of spiritual matters because the dragon was regarded as the guardian of treasure that lay hidden deep in the unconscious and was hard to attain. The dragon is making you aware that it is ‘there’. IT IS A SIGN OF INITIATION.
Dragon is also associated with SORROW – which we all experience at some stage or another in our human lives. It is a very subtle energy that is around us all the time, always affecting us at a deep level. However, by using the Light and fully energizing your chakra system, you can rise above this emotion. When you do the Divine Child within – which we are all attempting to release – is instantly in God’s Care and not destroyed by the earth energies. The 7 positive chakras and 10 negative chakras being represented by the heads and horns of the dragon.
Cells come in many shapes, including star-shapes represented by the stars of heaven that were cast down by the tail. One third of OUR cells die at the birth of the Divine Being – to be replaced by one third more, now having a new role in the perfecting of the human body.
Dorothy Elder’s comment about the dragon is, The dragon is fierce and always comes to those who are highly evolved and ready for deliverance.
12:14 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.
Eagle in the Shaman belief system represents Spirit. Eagle is reminding you to take heart and gather your courage, for the universe is presenting you with an opportunity to soar above the mundane levels of your life. The power of recognizing this opportunity may come in the form of a Spiritual test.
In learning to fiercely attack your personal fear of the unknown, the wings of your soul will be supported by the everpresent breezes, which are the breath of the Great Spirit. Within the realm of Mother Earth and Father sky, the dance that leads to flight involves the conquering of fear and the willingness to join the adventure that you are co-creating with Great Spirit.
Love the shadow as well as the light. See the beauty in both and you will take flight like the Eagle.
I feel the wilderness means our unaware state when we are so deceived by the illusion of this world. It is also a time of facing your fears. When you do, Spirit takes you by the hand, walks you up to them and THROUGH them – to find that there was NOTHING to fear.
The ‘time, times, and half a time’ represent a 3 and-a-half period – in our case that was in years, during which time we conquered all our fears by always turning to God for our answers and support. The ‘face of the serpent’ represents fears that turn into WISDOM when they are recognized for what they really are.
Dorothy adds at this point: And so the Christ Child has been born and is with God where the maturing process will take place. Our growth and Becoming is just beginning. Let us press on. Now that applies at the 7-chakra stage when it IS the Christ Child that has been conceived, and at the 12-chakra stage when the Divine Child has been created. But yes, there is still more to come.
Chapter 13 describes another beast with seven heads and ten horns, this one rising up out of the water (our subconscious). And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion, and his seat, and great authority.
And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.
And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, “Who is like unto the beast? Who is able to make war with him?’
And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.
And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
And it was given unto him to make war with the saints and to overcome them; and a power was given him over all kindred, and tongues, and nations.
And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
If any man have an ear, let him hear.
It is our understanding that the Shift commenced June 2001, and continues until Dec 31st 2012, and all those who are ready will make their personal Shift in that time span - bringing their Heaven down to Earth – not dying to attain Heaven.
Obviously this passage from Chapter 13 shows that a negative aspect has been allowed to operate for the last three and-a half years for all except those ‘whose names are written in the Book of Life’ – the Light Workers.
Let’s look at the symbolism of the beast using the Medicine Cards and Shamanism.
LEOPARD: All cats understand occult mysteries, but Jaguar (and the leopard is included in the Jaguar family) as a cat who loves water is especially tuned to THE MYSTERIES OF THE SUBCONSCIOUS since water is the element of subconscious wisdom. Invoke Jaguar for the medicine power to hunt the deep waters of the subconscious.
BEAR: in the contrary position (and we are looking at the negative aspect here): Your internal dialogue may have confused your perception of your true goals. In seeking answers and advice from others, you may have placed your own feelings and knowing aside. Reclaim the power of knowing. Allow the thoughts of confusion to be laid to rest.
Only through being your own advisor can you attain your true goals. Anything less than the doing of that which gives you the most joy is denial. To achieve happiness you must know yourself, body, mind and spirit. Use your strengths to overcome your weaknesses and know that both are necessary in your evolution.
LION: (in the contrary position) You may be tricked into believing that nothing else has validity except the ideas created by yourself. Watch out! Rome crumbled for this very reason!
Do not be led down the primrose path by a leader who is abusing power.
So for the last forty-two months unaware man has been much influenced by fear, insecurity, psychic distractions, charismatic teachers. But the aware in that time have been able to merely observe all this and not be influenced by it – rather using it as the tool it is meant to be
In that same chapter v 11-15 another beast is rising, this time from the earth. Earth, as has been pointed out, is the creative female principle and is very much of this world. So the beast rises out of the conscious mind and has two horns, and it speaks like a dragon. It has the authority of the first beast, and makes all to worship the first beast. The two beasts, one out of the sea and one which rose from the earth, are symbolic of the unconscious and conscious mind. The beast from the earth had two horns like a lamb, which was pure deceit. How the conscious mind does deceive us! So the beast from the earth is the materialistic view of our life, our goals, our needs. Magic is always attractive, and if we believe that what the earthly experience has to offer is to be our guide to happiness, we will be blinded.
Dorothy then goes on to explain that the number 666 – supposedly the number of the anti-Christ in Christian circles – when interpreted by numerologists, is actually very positive. Verse 18 says about this: Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding COUNT the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man: and his number is 666. (NOTE - the bible doesn’t say that it is Satan’s number!)
The following is from ‘Esoteric Numerology’:
Numerology began when life began, because ‘in the beginning there was 1.’ The vibrations then began and the 2 appeared, the first pair, and ushered in the real beginning of universal geometry.
Numbers, by themselves, represent universal principles through which all things evolve and continue to grow in cyclic fashion. The digits 1 through 9 symbolize the stages through which an idea must pass before it becomes a reality.
All manifestation is the result of these 9 stages.
9 is selflessness and compassion. Encompassing a love for all, it desires to apply its energy to universal service. It bestows an impersonal but just view of life, one that is generous, benevolent and patient. This is the artist and THINKER who has developed skills through the preceding cycles and is now ready to share his or her knowledge with the rest of the world.
The ions are in their final state of completion. They have travelled the entire cycle of 9 parts, ingesting experiences along the way. Now, in the closing cycle, they reach a total understanding and tolerance of others’ views and prejudices.
9 is ready to give back to the universe some measure of what it has learned through the 8 previous steps of the cycle. The law of cyclicity allows for NO WASTE and demands input for output. When this is done willingly, the completion experienced under 9 brings only joy at the gift of life and the freedom with which to enter the next cycle unencumbered.
SURELY THAT MUST BE WHAT RESURRECTION AND ASCENSION MUST BE ABOUT!
Chapter 14 describes the great rejoicing before the throne: And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the 144,000 which were redeemed from the earth. (This means that now a new vibrational level affects the body).
V4. These are they who were not defiled with women: for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb wither soever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the FIRST FRUITS unto God and to the Lamb.
V5. And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God.
I feel that these verses are not talking about people who have not had sex, rather that these 144,000 are the ones created by the Immaculate Conception of transformed, Christed-man and God to produce the Divine Man. They are ‘without fault’ because they are not influenced by human negativity any more. And these 144,000 are the first ones to attain Divinity as an example - to lead the rest of humanity through the Shift.
15:2 And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had won the victory over the beast and over his image and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God (the vibration of God).
This symbolizes the crystallization of the Spirit that takes place through the Fire Initiation, and through the understanding that negativity is ALSO of God and a necessary part of our personal transformation.
It goes on to talk about the 7 angels and the 7 plagues – but the angels that administer them are clothed in white and gold, so that must represent purity and high status; therefore these plagues are for our good. They actually represent the huge life and death struggles of our cells as this changing of the body from human to Divine is taking place.
Chapter 17 has a mysterious statement that takes some thinking about. John has just been shown the woman sitting on a red beast that had names insulting to God written all over it; the beast had seven heads and ten horns. The woman was dressed in purple and scarlet, and covered with gold ornaments, precious stones, and pearls. In her hand she held a gold cup full of obscene and filthy things, the result of her immorality. On her forehead was written a name that has a secret meaning: “Great Babylon, the mother of all the prostitutes and perverts in the world”. And I saw that the woman was drunk with the blood of God’s people and the blood of those who were killed because they had been loyal to Jesus.
Babylon represents how we have been swayed from our real purpose for being here by the distractions of lust, materialism and false values. Blood is about the joy in life, and if we are receiving our ‘joy’ from the wrong source, the blood will quickly become poisoned. But of course, we come here to EXPERIENCE these extremes in life until we become very disheartened by it all and either totally succumb OR finally turn away to seek the Light once more – in so doing we begin to close down the negative chakra system.
When I saw her I marvelled greatly. But the angel said to me “Why marvel? I will tell you the mystery of the woman, and of the beast with 7 heads and 10 horns that carries her.”
(Bear in mind that the 7 heads represent the 7 positive chakras and the 10 horns the negative chakras).
The beast that you saw was and is not and is to ascend from the bottomless pit and go to perdition (lessening, diminution).
This represents our BELIEF in evil/the devil: ‘As you believe in your heart, so IS it with you’ – even though it doesn’t really exist. As we battle with the overcoming of these beliefs in a devil it then rises out of our subconscious into the Light of understanding, then it dissipates.
This calls for a mind of wisdom. The 7 heads are 7 mountains on which the woman is seated; they are also 7 kings, five of whom have fallen, one is, the other yet to come, and when he comes he must remain only for a little while. As for the beast that was and is not, it is an eighth but it belongs to the seven, and it goes to perdition.
If we understand those kings as being negative chakras it makes much more sense; as we develop the positive chakra system the negative one starts to close down, bringing us into balance. In our first level classes we explain that you can have all 6 positive chakras activated, just through right living, and not even know what a chakra is. But the opening of the 7th chakra (plus or minus) brings the UNDERSTANDING, and the opening of the 8th chakra (plus or minus) is when we CONSCIOUSLY CHOOSE the Spiritual Path (positive) or the Occult (negative). ‘If you choose the occult path you are effectively severing your ties to the Loving God – it is a self-destructive path.’
Just as our belief in God belongs to the 7 positive chakras, so our belief in Satan belongs to the negative chakras; he is ‘the eighth one belonging to the seven’. Those kings, which are the negative chakras: five have fallen, ‘one is’ (the 6th) ‘the other yet to come’ (the 7th). As you close down those opposing chakras you are released from the illusion of evil forces opposing God: EVERYTHING is OF God – and ALL has a purpose.
19:6-7: I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings saying Allelujah: for the Lord God Omnipotent reigneth.
Let us be glad and rejoice and give honour to him, for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.
On the 16.11.94 we received the following message:
I AM THE GROOM. In time all spirit merges and becomes One with Me. When you have used up all your earthly resources is the time when this unity takes place and the deflowering occurs - for all Spirits are virgin in essence. Then cease your futile struggling, relax into Me, I will carry you along. I will provide, but know that My Gifts cannot be unwrapped too soon otherwise difficulty arises - they are presented as and when there is a need.
At the event of the kundalini rising on the 24th February 1995 two loud peals of thunder were heard – when there was no storm outside. This is what Dorothy says about this:
Since I have not experienced total samadhi, only small ones of ecstasy and peace, I depend on one who has, Yogananda, to describe it: the Amen or Aum, and the voice of the multitude, the sound of waters, the peal of thunder, all have been reported as a part of the experience. It is like a great orchestra as it plays at full volume the last of the Ninth Symphony of Beethoven. How the drums clash and clang in a facsimile of thunder or great power. How exciting it is as well. Building a feeling of expectation and of an ending. We know that it is not the end, only the beginning.
And the event being celebrated is the marriage of the Lamb and his bride. In Hindu teachings the marriage of Shiva and Shakti is the event toward which all their worship and meditation has been tending. The marriage of the finite and infinite. At the marriage we become whole, we become that Self which has been at the centre of our being but unrecognised or covered over with our materialistic self.
21:5-6 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, write: for these words are true and faithful.
And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
15.4.95. In the early hours a white wall fountain was presented to me, which had a lion’s head on the top. A voice said, “Drink of the Fluid of My Life” and I found myself answering, “Thank you Father, I give my life over to Your Hands”. A dream the following night was interpreted as ‘I am leaving chaos behind. Sometimes my judgement is distorted by my thinking, but there’s no stopping now, and there’s no turning back. I’ll be looked after.
21:7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son.
It was two years eight months till we were told we were Sons of God, on the 12.12.97:
You have earned the title Son of God. Proudly wear it.
21:10 …he showed me that great city, the Holy Jerusalem descending out of heaven from God.
We have stated that the Garden of Eden is a state of mind. This New Jerusalem is a state of being. The description of Jerusalem is symbolic of the balance we must achieve, the qualities of character required, the level of vibration we must achieve (the foundations of different gemstones – which each give off their own vibration – tells us that the COMBINATION of those vibrations is what OUR rate of vibration needs to be to attain this).
21:21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls, and the streets of the city were pure gold.
The pearl of great price that all are seeking: to know the world is to overcome it, and the great price was in letting go of all that made you feel secure – but yet held you trapped in this illusory world. Although the process involved in reaching this is steady and gradual, the opening happens all at once. You will see.
Chapter 22: And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.
The throne of God is the pineal, and ‘of the Lamb’ the pituitary – whose roles are now very much changed for they are about to transform the human body.
22:2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bore 12 manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month, and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
22”3 And there shall be no more curses but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it: and his servants shall serve him:
22:4 And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.
Dorothy gives Charles Fillmore’s explanation of the river of water of life as the pure life of God flowing into man’s consciousness through the spiritual body. It is as bright as crystal for it is not water but a spiritual substance that the physical eye cannot perceive. It is clear and pure and builds not only the physical body but also the spiritual body.
It flows from the throne of God and of the Lamb when they are united.
The middle of the street of the city refers to the central tube of the spinal cord up which flows the kundalini and on either side the Ida and Pingala, masculine and feminine aspects – which are connected to the nerves of the body and the energy centres in the spiritual body.
Through Ida and Pingala flows the prana, the energy brought into the body through the breath that enters the body through the nostrils. This feeds the body.
So the ‘tree of life’ is the spine that has coursing within it the energy of the Divine with which man may become One.
We have learned that the activation of the Tree of Life reverses the electrical system of the body. Before that we had to reverse, then remove, the magnetism of the body. Now we know that after resurrection the breath must be reversed as well in order for the body perfection to take place:
The human breath is the ‘key’; it continually draws opposing forces into the body system. Yes, breath is life – but in unaware man that life is limited, and decay begins straight away - even while growth is taking place.
(Then into my mind came a statement from the Level 2 lessons: ‘yogis do not measure their life in terms of years, but in the amount of breaths taken.’ I then understood that we had received our breath from the Earth energies up till this point. I was told:
You must STOP taking your breath from the Dimensional God and now receive it from the Omniscient God – you will know what to do when the time comes.
Jim was sound asleep beside me, yet several minutes later we BOTH stopped breathing - for what seemed like eternity, but was probably for just over a minute. During that time I felt myself withdrawing from my body; a huge TIREDNESS swept over me, my hands ‘disappeared’, then my feet, and I wondered if I was DYING, yet there was no feeling of panic over that. Into my mind came, “Thank you Dimensional God for the life you have given me to this point, and for the strength that I needed to attain it” - with that we both started breathing again
To reverse this cycle – just as the magnetic and electrical fields of the body are reversed, so too the Source of breath must be reversed in order for the body to regenerate. Jesus said, “I am the Resurrection and the Life
your resurrection has been attained and now the Life comes within. Honour your body and CONSCIOUSLY direct that Breath.
Therefore, we discover that there are three stages involved in the Divining process - the book of Revelations truly does reveal them all:
1. The opening of the first 7 chakras to begin the process of Spiritualization.
2. The full activation of the Tree of Knowledge, whose sap runs up the spine to activate the pineal – which awakens the Tree of Life, whose sap runs down the spine.
3. The final stage is complete union with God and activation of the hypothalamus and pituitary to transform the body – and the life circumstances - bringing down our heaven to Earth; our New Jerusalem.
A seven-year process, and ours was heralded by a message in 1994:
A time of progress is upon you all, great changes are taking place and your lives are about to be transformed. Take it a step at a time and watch it all unfold before your eyes. Great happiness lies ahead and much fulfilment for everyone.
Your vision a few nights ago showing you young and vital was no dream – it will be reality for you all. Know this is coming for you and is very close – yes, even in Our terms - and yours!
A later message in 1997 from Jesus said:
This 7-year process that you are experiencing is the path to Divinity.
I believe that this is the path for ALL light Beings presently on the earth plane, and the opportunity to tread it lies before us for the next eleven and a-half years.
