The Arisen Phoenix Series #4: "The field of potential is going crazy"

Hello everyone

Exceptionally, I'm sending you this special Light-filled compilation first, before emailing you, later this week, other material I compiled about environmental issues and the ongoing torturous ways of the U.S.

Make sure to make time to join this coming June 8 in the most amazing experience offered to us in quite some time - the last time there was a Venus transit was December 1882! More on this below, and much much more!

Love, Light and Peace will prevail!

"You are made up of more than 100 trillion cells, each one a complete factory performing more than a million chemical reactions every second, day and night. Could these 100 trillion cells have come together by chance to form you? Could these 100 trillion cells perform 1 million chemical reactions a second perfectly, and perfectly interact with 100 trillion other cells by chance? (...) Modern research with "tagged" elements of the human body has shown that 98 percent of the atoms in your body are replaced by the body in less than a year. Like the universe, our bodies aren’t static in nature. They are constantly changing. The protein in your body is turned over every six months. You make an entirely new covering of skin every five weeks. You produce a new stomach lining every five days! Most of the functioning parts of your liver are replaced every six months. Your skeleton every three months. The hydrogen, carbon, nitrogen and oxygen of your brain cells are replaced every year. The raw material of your DNA (the primary material in chromosomes and key to heredity and cell duplication) every six weeks. Every seven years, every cell of every part of your body dies and is replaced. Think of it! Over every seven-year period your physical body completely dies! Yet you live on! Every seven years you receive a completely new and older physical body."

Date: 29 May 2004

The winds of change are upon us. Lightworkers and bringers of the New Dawn, we have a great task to perform in maintaining a vibrational balance during this time of momentous change. As more light pours into the planet, it unmasks and reveals anything that is not in alignment with the greater plan. And so whatever is corrupt is being exposed. Likewise whatever within us needs transforming, it is also being pushed to the surface. For this reason, many people especially lightworkers are finding themselves in the midst of emotional turmoil brought about by karmic cleansing and the great evolution that is now taking place. It is a time that is demanding change on every level.

We are preparing for what is considered by many to be the greatest astronomical event of the year - the Transit of Venus on June 8th 2004. The last time there was a Venus transit was December 1882. This long awaited transition has been described by several gurus as the beginning of the Golden Age of Enlightenment and that the actual starting point will be on June 8th. Let us prepare well for this extraordinary event by being more aware during the days to come and attuning ourselves to the energies of transformation that are aligning themselves.  

The following two links give more information on the Venus transit, the first is more astrological, the second is from an Indian Avatar Kalki.

Following, is also some information from the Global Family, a member of PAN.

Love, light and blessings,


The Global Family, is an international peace education organization and a long time member of PAN. They are committed to supporting a shift in consciousness from separation and fear to unity, love and cooperation. They co-founded an intentional community on 500 acres of beautiful land at the foot of the Sangre deCristo mountains in northern New Mexico, called Hummingbird Ranch. The ranch is considered to be a "living laboratory for the evolution of consciousness" and a place where unity and love are modelled. Each summer they invite like-minded souls to join them on this land. So if you are thinking of taking a retreat this summer, this could be a good place to go. or

The SHIFT is upon us... Get ready for the down load! by Aluna Joy
(...) So here is the scoop. They said "The SHIFT is upon us... Get ready for the down load!." We have come to the place we have all been waiting for. We are about to embark on the shift of the ages. What is happening is ALL the upper and lower dimensions are going to make a big leap in consciousness together with us right in the middle of it all. The Maya believe that there are 9 underworlds, and 13 heavens above us, but the Star Elders say there are many more dimensions than this. What is happening is doorways are beginning to crack open on all levels and dimensions. The BIG MANEUVER is that they all these different dimensions have to open and shift at the same time, this way lower dimensions will not contaminate the higher ones. CLIP

Subject: Hermes - A true wisdom message from Maitreya


For many years many people on the earth plane have talked about ascension. Many have said that space beings will come to the earth plane and take the good souls away. Others have predicted that only certain church groups will ascend when the Christ Soul returns. The real truth is that all mankind can ascend, however, many souls will not because they will not raise their vibration.

The Photon Belt energy, the Christ Spirit is aiding to raise the vibration of those on this planet. Many souls will not be able to handle the higher energy unless they have cleared away their blockages and dealt with controlling the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies. Millions of souls on this earth plane have been trapped, returning incarnation after incarnation unable to leave this vibration because of the lack of knowledge about the Chakras and their purpose. They lack the knowledge of past life memory, and keep themselves in darkness, only achieving nirvana or peace between life times. They have to return over and over trying to clear away the dross of incarnation after incarnation. The Christ Soul came through Jesus 2000 years ago; he was a medium and healer. He transfigured just as many mediums do today, and he brought with him the Photon Belt energy then. Today it is being done again to help humankind raise their vibration. Sadly the words of the teacher Jesus have been changed beyond their original meaning. Many other prophets have also spoken and brought new energy and messages from the Masters to aid mankind, but all of them have been interpreted wrongly.

The message is being given again in the hope that humankind will listen. For those who have sought spiritual help, who are without negative conditioning and thought. For those that have love for their fellow human, despite their failings, and and have no judgment of another, they will finally leave this earth plane,for those who follow the inner light never to return. They will move to a higher vibration, away from the negativity, and they will be one with the Supreme Being or God. This will happen for all souls who are in this present incarnation and who have raised their vibration. Those who do not raise their vibration and who do not heed the message of the Masters, they will stay earth bound once again. To incarnate over and over for another one thousand years of earth time, until another energy comes to transform and aid those who want to leave.

Many of those leaving the earth plane this time are attached to the space brotherhood of many incarnations past. They came to seed, and to teach. But once they blended their energy with that of humankind on earth their Higher Self that was of the purest and highest, merged with the Self of the primitive man. The animal part of humankind, and subsequent offspring was tied to the earth plane. Incarnating life after life, trying to free itself from the Self. Trying desperately to merge with the Higher Self, but unable to, because the vibration of the planet was not high enough.

That is now changing and humankind has the opportunity to change. The dark forces are gathering also, waiting to pounce on those who want to change. Many will succumb to temptation and go backwards, but many will move forward, onto ascension and the merging with God of the Divine Soul, to leave the Earth plane forever. There is so little time, and many souls to contact. Many words have already been spoken and written, but still humankind bury their heads in the sand. Many channels have been sent and still they remain unheard because humankind has come to love the darkness and has forgotten what the light is like. It is not the singing of hymns and the chanting of prayers. Nor is it the insistence on following one particular sect or cult or doing things a particular way. It is in being honest with oneself, facing ones negative or dark side, seeing good in every soul, never judging another. It is a peace that passes all understanding.

Let yourself be led to the light, let the light shine through, and the reward will be that peace. Let yourself be led away from the earth plane to ascension to a higher vibration and to a union that is beyond anything you have ever known. It can start now. You can experience that peace. You just have to turn to the light, be free of all criticism, judgment of another, free of the emotional body, understand the spiritual laws and abide by them. Love your fellow man with all your heart, and be willing to grow spiritually. The opening of this door is not easy, we have sent many teachers to help you, they are everywhere and if you ask you will be led to them. It means facing your ego-Self, and letting it go. Then will you make ascension to the higher vibration.

Subject: Hermes - Life is an illusion from Maitreya

Dear Friends,

A wonderful message of Truth. A blessed Teacher used to say to me: Personality, ego self cannot 'see' nor understand soul energy or consciousness, but when Soul becomes the dominant vibrational-energy, and ego has taken a back seat, then Soul sees through the small self, ego control, fear, personality, the Great Illusion. Love in Light, Viv


28th May 2004

Message from Maitreya

Try not to believe all that you see. For life is an illusion which can only be seen through when one begins to raise one's vibration. (let the soul energy dominate ones life)

To you who are in the illusion, because of the ego/self, you cannot see beyond this reality, but there is another 'reality' beyond the illusion and it can only be seen when one raises one's vibration. As that happens, as one raise's one's vibration, it becomes possible to see through the illusion which has been created.

For some, this can be a frightening experience because all of their life they have believed in what they thought was real, only to find out it is not so. For those who see through the illusion, life changes, and often that change can be frightening too. It involves change, and the change can be quite major. There is then a battle between the Self and the Higher Self which can be quite a hard tough fight. One cannot explain either to another person who does not see through the illusion, what it is like. There are no words to describe this experience.

One can find oneself very alone with this experience, for it can take a number of Earth years to complete. However, you are not alone, although you cannot see us, we are watching over you and trying to help you at this stage of awareness. Spiritual development, moving forward in vibration is not easy. The battle at times can be big and large, yet when one does move forward, the feeling of peace can be quite amazing. (The Peace that passeth understanding) All that matters is this moment of Earth time. Everything from the past has been and gone, when one begins to live in the now, one can then begin to see through the illusion.

Dear Jean,

Really appreciated your "Hold High the Flame of Peace...." You might appreciate my latest 2012 Watch, a regular column I write for the Australian New Dawn magazine.

Much love to you,

2012 Watch

by Valum Votan, Closer of the Cycle

Which do You Prefer, a Day Out of Time or a World at War?

It’s 2004, just weeks away from the Venus Transit that opens the gate to the Road to 2012 and things are heating up. Not just the planet temperature, but the heat wave of war that is gathering in the intensity of its ominous and ugly news flashes. Evidence of this is in the BBC news special, “One Day of War,” which tracks war in sixteen locations over a 24 hour period. Two people are killed every minute in armed conflict. That’s 2880 per day, 80,640 every four weeks, 1,051,200 per year, at the current rate. Not only is there war in the Middle East and Afghanistan, but in Nepal, Southeast Asia, and Central Africa, as well as Colombia, South America, and Chechnya in Russia.

Because of the instantaneity of telecommunications and the ability to get anything on camera, we’ve probably never had more horrific images, nor has war itself ever been quite so horrific. The images of American military - men and women - taking sadomasochistic almost pornographic pleasure at the torture of Iraqi prisoners, is complemented by the desperation of suicide car bombs. It is the weirdest and strangest war ever - the war on terrorism. No dialogue allowed with the terrorists (whoever they really are) just destroy them. In this, America’s lead is not surprisingly followed by Israel.

Though condemned by the UN, it is amazing that Israel continues to get away with its military maneuvers against the Palestinians in their refugee camps. Last week after 13 Israeli soldiers were killed, in the Gaza strip - macabre stories of the Israeli army on its hands and knees searching the desert for body parts - Israel launched Operation Rainbow which devastated the Rafah camp in its search for weapons-smuggling tunnels. War is Peace is the current military jargon, as Dick Cheney put it, “We’ll wage our war for peace forever if we have to.” Since its is a war for peace, why not name your antiterrorist action Operation Rainbow as did the Israelis? Not only were militants targeted but so was the Rafah zoo and over 100 homes which were all demolished. According to BBC news on May 25:

“A senior military official told Reuters news agency: "I don't know if I can say Operation Rainbow is over. We are taking a deep breath and this goes on."

Rafah residents said the Israeli withdrawal had left behind a trail of destruction. "It looks like an earthquake hit," Rafah resident Sami Fuja told Reuters news agency.”

War has been so institutionalized in our consciousness that many people think we can’t live without it. A bombing of a wedding party that left 40 people dead (America did the same thing in Afghanistan) drew this remark from the unapologetic General Kimmet head of the Coalition forces, “Even bad guys have parties,” thus justifying his use of force against the wedding celebrants. But not everybody is enchanted with the way the Iraq situation is being handled. The Guardian Unlimited reported in a major story on May 13, entitled “America’s Military Coup.” “Donald Rumsfeld has a new war on his hands - the US officer corps has turned on the government,” reports the Guardian.

Following the revelations of the Abu Ghraib prison tortures, the Army Times ran an extraordinary editorial in reference to the scapegoating of six Marines, declaring, “that the folks in the Pentagon are talking about the wrong morons... This was not just a failure of leadership at the local command level. This was a failure that ran straight to the top. Accountability here is essential - even if that means relieving leaders from duty in a time of war.”

The ominous implication of this editorial is nothing less than a military coup against the government. In this environment where there is talk of impeaching Rumsfeld and even his superior, circulating among top US military strategists is an interesting paper entitled “The Origins of the American Military Coup of 2012.”(!) There is the Mayan prophecy date of 2012, closing of the cycle of history, and it’s a military option as well!

This paper was written in 1992, and awarded the prize for the strategy essay competition at the National Defense University. None other than Colin Powell awarded the prize to Lieutenant Colonel Charles Dunlap for his 2012 future fantasy in which the US military had to stage a coup against an incapable civilian government.

It’s 2004, and 2012 is rattling the cages of the Pentagon. What if the whole world took a day out of time? What if Sharon, Arafat, Bush and Bin Laden - the whole lot of them - along with the rest of the world all took a day out of time to lay their need for vengeance to rest, just for one day? What if Sharon went and visited Arafat holed up in his gutted compound just to say hello, is there anything I can do for you? Who creates a enemies? They are not in our DNA, they are acquired habits of history. No wonder history must be over, even if it takes a military coup in America to help end it.

If everybody took a Day out of Time and all business as usual - war is now business as usual - were stopped, it would be the day the Earth stood still. What a day that would be! All machines silenced, all guns and bombs put aside. Only on such a day could you take account of what is natural, what is real, what is true. The only thing better than a Day of Time is another one the day after. We eagerly report war, but peace? Since war is peace, real peace doesn’t exist in the institutionalized mind. But this summer there is something that could be reported as real peace, and that is the Day Out of Time.

From South Africa to Lake Baikal, from Mt. Fuji to Sao Paolo, Brazil there are going to be major synchronized events celebrating the Great Calendar Change of 2004. Yes, the Day Out of Time exists to show the rest of the planet the alternative to a world at war. After ten years of such celebrations occurring every July 25, Gregorian, now also known as the Planetary Peace and Culture Festivals, the Day out of Time will be the manifestation of the will of the people to change the calendar. For the first time in history it is the people who are making the change. The irregular corrupt standard of the Gregorian calendar is being replaced by the perfect harmonic standard of Thirteen Moons/28 days. The new time is arriving.

The 2012 prophecy says that by the closing of the cycle the human race will be back in synch with nature. Over the next eight years the world will change as dramatically as it ever has. And there will be peace at last, a new heaven and a new Earth - and it all begins with a Day Out of Time. Please join this year in a festival! It is not too late to change the world.

P.S. IM+UR spelt backwards brings us to Sufi Poet "RUMI" of the 13th Century.

Rumi founded the Mevlevi Order of dervishes, better known as the Whirling Dervishes of Sufism. Through a turning movement, body posturing, mental focus, and sound, the dervish achieves ecstasy through union with God.

Once a secret society, today the Mevlevi tour the world allowing audiences to witness the ceremony of their sacred dances and music.

It is also interesting to note that similar to other major religions, Islam frowns upon dancing and using words such as "gamble," "drunk," and "wine" which you find throughout Rumi's and other great Islamic and Sufi poets writings. Obviously they mean "drunk"on God's grace, but that's not to say they wouldn't be outcast by religious fundamentalists today.

A voice asked, 'Who is there?'
He answered, 'It is Me.'

The voice said, 'There is no room for Me and Thee.'
The door was shut.

After a year of solitude and deprivation he returned and knocked.
A voice from within asked, 'Who is there?'
The man said, 'It is Thee.'
The door was opened for him."



Message from Matthew - May 28, 2004

S: Matthew, can you please tell me what's behind our government's new warning of imminent terror threats?

MATTHEW: Nothing "new" here at all, Mother! First they instill fear, and that's almost enough to accomplish their objective of dimming the light within souls IF the public reacts fearfully. By now there is doubt, even anger, about these alerts, so the hoped-for fear factor that formerly did create a great deal of negativity—particularly after their 9/11 event—is missing. This means that there will be attempts to follow through with these alerts: You SEE—there IS reason for you to be afraid, so do it!

While we cannot assure that never will any terrorist acts be successful, we absolutely can assure that none on the scale of 9/11, as currently being speculated, will happen. We have mentioned before that the major terrorist acts, such as the bombing of the trains in Spain, are planned and executed by the so-called "Black Ops" faction of the CIA. It was explained that the light forces who have been counteracting major efforts were duped by false information from an Illuminati "mole" and thus were not in position to thwart that tragedy.

However, there has been complete success in causing the failure of other, similar dark efforts. Only the random acts carried out by individuals whose longstanding opposition to the forces that have subjugated them are beyond the control of the light forces on and off-planet. Given the hatred, determination and perseverance of these individuals who are willing to die along with their victims, these random acts will continue until the light of the higher frequencies touches the hearts of people on both sides.

S: Is there a specific vibrational point where all the embodied dark forces will die en masse?

MATTHEW: There is a vibration wherein no longer can they physically survive, but of course that doesn't mean that by other causes none will die prior to Earth's reaching that point. There is no way to predict how many dark souls will still be incarnated then or how many may embrace the light prior to that time, and at this juncture, the "time" itself cannot be determined because the field of potential is "going crazy," if I may say so.

S: After Earth reaches that point and only light-receptive souls are living on the planet, will the basest part of Nirvana still exist?

MATTHEW: No. There will no longer be a need in your spirit realm for it. Like all others, the souls there have the choice of responding to the light constantly being beamed to them or continuing to refuse it. Those who refuse will be taken to another world of the same dense energy registration, but unlike where they are now, the intelligence level in that new world will be rudimentary and those souls will be starting from scratch in their evolution.

S: Do they know this?

MATTHEW: Indeed they have been informed, but just as they have refused to accept the light, they have refused to believe this truth.

S: I see. On a different subject, a channel I've heard from before has just sent her Web site update, and it's filled with predictions of wars and huge Earth changes that will result in a billion deaths. She prefaced these with a note that all of them could be changed by collective consciousness. In case there's not enough energy in our collective consciousness, will advanced civilizations add theirs to prevent those happenings? Or will they use their technology to do so?

MATTHEW: Oh my! Mother dear, I know you are feeling no fear about this because you have no fear, period, but it is natural of you to care about others who may read that and give thought energy to that kind of world. First I say, those calamities of such dire proportions will NOT happen because the intention of Earth herself is to not allow that, therefore the "collective consciousness" of her life forms is secondary in consideration.

In many messages I have mentioned that the extensive planetary cleansing thought necessary more than a decade ago no longer is required to rid Earth of the massive accumulation of negativity. Actually, it was a decade ago when I first told you that the former need was relieved by the combination of people awakening into the light and the additional light assistance of your space family.

I did not mean that your collective consciousness doesn't count! Absolutely it does! It was millennia of collective consciousness that led Earth to her death throes sixty-some years back. But no vast numbers of souls there are envisioning the flooding of huge land masses that would cause a billion deaths, so you are not putting out the energy that would create that kind of world. And the fact is, as you often have been told, Earth is moving right along into fourth density and beyond with her body intact, and with or without her human population.

Mother, the person who has put those dire predictions on her Web site may have done so with all good intentions, but I can assure you that no source in the light gave her that information, which is diametrically opposed to the course Earth has chosen.

S: OK, dear, thank you! I remember your telling me that the innocence of animals automatically means they will ascend with Earth. You've also said that once we're in the higher vibrations, most people will choose not to eat meat, so will all the herds of beef cattle and other food animals go, too? Also, will the nature of all the predatory animals be changed and all of them will become herbivores?

MATTHEW: Animals who are loved and cared for automatically will travel along with their families. The nature of predatory animals will revert to its original peaceable nature, and the current food chain will cease as the animals‚ cellular structure, just as humans‚ becomes crystalline-based.

As for the animals raised for food, this has been and will continue to be a transitional process all along the journey. The introduction of "mad cow disease" is not "bad luck"—it is a significant factor to reduce beef consumption and persuade people to withdraw from eating all kinds of meat. You will see changes in the animals‚ ability to reproduce, with fewer and fewer food animals being born, and far more humane treatment of those who are.

There are many avenues where proper stewardship of your animals is growing. Using animals for medical and product experimentation and testing has lessened greatly in corresponding response to people's increased pressure to end those practices. Globally groups have formed to protect species whose survival is threatened by one means or another, and other groups‚ efforts are aimed at ending those means: destruction of forests; soil, water and air pollution; killing for animal parts; testing that kills and damages marine life. Individuals are creating preserves for animals rescued from one dreadful circumstance or another.

Half a century past, few people were sensitive to the plight of Earth's animals, and today millions are actively working or financially supporting efforts to protect and preserve them. This change that is so gratifying for us to see is due to the ever-increasing abundance of light on the planet—realizing that animal life must be respected is an aspect of spiritual growth. You still have a long ways to go on this front, as it is just as imperative that you treat animals humanely as it is that you treat each other that way.

S: All animals lovers will agree with that! Matthew, are any places on Earth more sacred than others?

MATTHEW: Yes in the sense that some still are holding ancient records and others are energy votices that anchor the light. So you could say that these areas are the equivalent of organs such as your heart, brain and lungs, but just as you can't separate any one part of your body from any other without repercussion, all aspects of Earth are essential for her planetary integrity. Her spiritual integrity, too.

S: I see. How significant is the current alignment of the planets, especially the position of Venus in reference to Earth?

MATTHEW: Extremely significant! We know that a great deal of information is coming forth from knowledgeable sources on the planet regarding this new phase of celestial activity—this is inspired, or filtered, to these individuals by sources off-planet. Like Earth, those planetary bodies have souls with cellular memory and they are evolving, thus it is the influence of planetary consciousness that they are exerting within your solar system. Attributing feminine qualities to Venus is not just folklore. Her light-filled composition possesses the nurturing attributes of gentleness, strength, and compassion that are ascribed to women on Earth, and it is these attachments to energy streamers that are starting to come to you in greater force.

Mother, the changes taking place on Earth—overcoming the dark control and opting to live in the light—are not exclusive to your world or your solar system. Perhaps not even to this universe, but we don't know that. What we do know is that these changes are universal in scope. There are places of such love and glory that you cannot imagine them, and likewise places of intense darkness where the masculine warrior and ruthless natures are dominant. God's desire is to bring this universe completely within the light so the opposites are reconciled. But as you well know, free will reigns, and those who cling to dark ways may do so until the brilliance of light, the radiance of love, is so powerful that they desire to live within that.

S: Is karma the basis for the evolution of planets?

MATTHEW: Yes, it is, but on a scale that you could not comprehend. Actually, that I cannot explain because there are no words in Earth vocabularies to describe this. We give explanations to the best of our ability within the limitations of your languages and third density brain usage, and because of this, often our information is interpreted incorrectly insofar as planetary and universal happenings. However, our most essential message is simple and clear: Do unto others as you would have done unto you; live with peace and love in your heart.

S: Thank you, dear. Anything else you’d like to add?

MATTHEW: I think that is a good ending, Mother, and the lightness in your heart lets me know that you agree, so ciao for now!


Excerpt from "Matthew Tell Me About Heaven"

NOTE FROM JEAN: This material taken from Suzy and Matthew Ward's first book "Matthew, Tell Me About Heaven" -- and networked here with Suzy's permission -- ties in with material on near-death experience I emailed you recently and makes clear - amongst other things - that we are always One with God - whether we are aware or not of it - something which was also the main theme developed in The Light Series #62: One-ification is underway last week. I cannot emphasize enough how important it is to avail oneself of the uniquely vital information in this first book from Matthew as it sheds so much Light on what is going on beyond the veil of so-called "death" and consequently on what life is all about HERE! To find out more about "Matthew, Tell Me About Heaven" and the 3 other books already published, go at


S: What does Nirvana look like?

MATTHEW: It's BEAUTIFUL! Imagine a cloudless sky of blue that's almost blinding in its crystalline purity. Periods comparable to the spans of dawn and dusk on Earth are the only change from the brilliance of this blue light, and in those times there is an intense golden haze. Along with green of the same intensity, those are our primary colors.

S: Is there solid ground?

MATTHEW: Yes, but like all other facets of our world, the ground isn't of the same composition as yours. The ground covering, which we call virna, is edible, just as grass is for your grazing animals, and it's as plush as an easy chair.

Although our scenery, too, is of a different density than yours, we have incredibly beautiful areas similar to those on Earth. I especially enjoy being at a lake where the water is crystal clear and reflects the overhanging trees. These trees are taller than your redwoods but with more delicate trunks, and they have fragrant rose-colored blossoms. The white sandy soil of the shoreline feels like talcum powder.

S: Thank you for that image, dear. What a heavenly place that is!

MATTHEW: Well, this is heaven, Mother! That lake and our oceans and mountains and forests could be called static, or stable, scenery, because they always are here. We can create our private surroundings, including weather, to delight us momentarily and we can change them as often as we wish. The seasons change here somewhat like on Earth because enough of us desire those differences. Generally we have what you could call "just another perfect day in paradise" because that's what the majority want and, as a collection of individuals, they create it. For instance, people at an outdoor concert or fiesta don't want a storm to interrupt their enjoyment, so they don't create one. But elsewhere someone who wishes the drama of thunder and lightning can conjure it up wherever he is and it's confined to his presence. Whatever environment anyone wants, he manifests in his immediate surroundings without affecting anyone outside of that encapsulated zone.

S: Matthew, that's just mind-boggling, making whatever weather and scenery you want!

MATTHEW: It is an advantage, for sure, but it isn't the limit of our manifesting ability. Whatever can be envisioned clearly and desired intently can be manifested here, where the sensory and creative capacities of the soul are more optimally developed and used than on Earth.


S: Is your food anything like ours?

MATTHEW: Our bodies don't need dense nourishment, and the longer people are here, the less desire they have for solid food. However, since eating is such an enjoyable pastime on Earth, when most souls arrive they still want the familiarity of eating rituals and comfort, and so we have numerous types of delicious food to accommodate them. A lot of us enjoy eating picnic style.

Some of our food is like your fruit, ready to eat right off the tree or bush. Other foods, more like your vegetables, usually are cooked and flavors are added. But no animals are turned into dinner!

I haven't been eating for quite some time because it no longer appeals to me. I do like liquids, though. We have many types of delicious and invigorating drinks. Some resemble light fruit juices with an effervescence that actually is light sparkles mixed with the liquid. Other, denser liquids taste like your vegetable soup with various seasonings.

Water here is purer than any on Earth and it also has captured light bubbles. And there is liquid in the air, like mist, which is both refreshing and nourishing for our bodies just in the contact.

S: Would that contact be equivalent to our bathing?

MATTHEW: No. Bathing here has nothing to do with dirty bodies -- we simply don't "get dirty" -- it is a refreshing experience involving a mental outlook, not soap and water. It's the same for our animals. Wouldn't that be wonderful for you, with your six dogs!

S: For me, that really would be heaven on Earth!


MATTHEW: Mother, let me be very serious for a moment. Yes, for you that would indeed be "heaven on Earth" because that is how you feel about it. There is no "heaven" as a placement, nor a "hell" as such. What people on Earth refer to as heaven and hell actually are their approaches to situations wherever they are, and what each individual manifests as the circumstances of his life.

Every single soul there creates his surroundings, and they are different from even the same "set of props" as they appear to those who are sharing that life in any close capacity. It is a matter of individual perception that creates each individual world, and one can choose how he wishes to perceive all aspects of his life. It is just as easy to create the glories you attribute to heaven as it is to create the horrors you associate with hell, and both conditions are being created right there!

You have heard people say that someone "is creating his own hell," or "Heaven and hell are right here on Earth." YES! And neither as perceived there is in this spirit realm.


S: Well, if our concepts of heaven and hell are so different from their actuality, what is the purpose of Nirvana?

MATTHEW: Its original purpose was different from its current one, which is primarily a residential and learning placement. In this context, it is the home of souls between incarnations on Earth, but it serves other very important purposes, too.

When life forms with intelligence and conscience were first created, there was no need for a realm like this. Aging as we know it didn't exist at that stage of antiquity, so physical death from "old age" was not a consideration. It was the cosmic battling that started between the dark and the light forces that created the need for Nirvana and other similar placements. The light beings realized that safe havens were needed for their wounded or exhausted souls who would be easy prey for the dark forces, and they created many realms like this one to protect and preserve their frail, recovering kindred spirits.

I should mention that light equates with wisdom, love and the power of love, and dark is the absence of all that. In another sense, it could be considered the opposing sides, respectively, of positive and negative use of energy, the life force of all that has ever been created. The two opposing forces have been waging war ever since the first darkly-inclined beings used their free will to create and proliferate negativity in our universe.

S: Matthew, I'm not sure I heard you correctly. Did you say there's more than one Nirvana and that those places were created by powers other than God?

MATTHEW: As far as I know, there's only one placement named Nirvana, but there are many havens for the same purpose. This one is primarily for transitioning souls from Earth, and other worlds have their own discarnate realms for their inhabitants. In all cases, I am referring to transition from an immediate past physical life to discarnate life. Many souls here now originated in deep antiquity and have spent many lifetimes in places other than Earth, even in other galaxies.

Mother, intelligent human life did not originate on Earth. It was introduced there by physical relocation of humans from other planetary systems and their populating programs at a crucial point in the evolution of Earth human root stock. So, in the sense of our ancestry, ALL of us are extraterrestrial to Earth even during our lifetimes on the planet!

As for the creation of all these haven realms, the creating powers certainly were of God. Creator's, or God's, gift of free will includes its inseparable aspect of manifesting capability in conjunction with Him. An individual's creating ability never is separate from God's. Souls never are separate from God!

Nirvana and similar realms are manifestations of the angels and their highest-being descendants, whom they also had co-created with God. So you see, it was from that lower level of decision-making and co-creative ability that the restorative, protected placements such as Nirvana came into being.

S: What do you mean, Nirvana is a "manifestation"?

MATTHEW: Manifestation, or creation, if you will, is both the process and the product of a joint creating effort between Creator or God and any soul using universal elements as building materials. In the process, first comes the idea, or the vision, then the intense desire to put that idea into substance, then the rest of the effort required to do so. That process of manifestation results in the product, a manifestation. Just as this realm is a manifestation, so is Earth. So are you! Everything in the universe from a galaxy to an acorn to a jet plane is a manifestation. The creating capability of all beings, whether living in body or in spirit, originates within Creator. Therefore there is no separation between Creator, or God, and any co-creator, just as there is no separation between God, or Creator, and everything that has ever been created.

Mother, I know I've been going back and forth between "God" and "Creator" as if they're one and the same. They aren't. I've only confused you by trying to explain things within your capacity to relate, and you know of only that one "supreme being," whom you call God. But the ultimate power of the cosmos -- the omnipotent, omniscient beingness, the Totality, I AM, or any of the other designations you have for God -- actually is Creator.

At the time of the "Big Bang," a reference sometimes given to that first dividing of Creator, the highest realm of angels -- the archangels -- was created. That's where the Christed energy resides. That division was not a diminishing of Creator's essence, but a proportionate sharing of powers even as the whole remained. The archangels were not of substance, only of pure love expressed as light.

Eons later, in conjunction with Creator, the archangels created the next level of angels, who also were only light and also shared proportionately Creator's powers. In the third step of creation, the angelics in conjunction with Creator made life form potentials, meaning that manifestations now could be discarnate or of substance. They created the universes -- which combined are the cosmos -- with all of their celestial bodies and the gods who went forth to rule and co-create all life within the universes. One of those gods became ruler of our universe, and many Earth religions call him God. God has proportionately all the powers of Creator, and in this universe, He rules with those qualities you rightfully attribute to Him. And even though He is referred to as "Father" and with masculine pronouns, God is total love and light, which has no gender.

S: Matthew, I know you're trying to explain this as simply as you can, but it's going to take a few readings before I can comprehend it enough just to ask sensible questions.

MATTHEW: I understand that, Mother. At one time the people of Earth knew all about their Creator-God connection and manifestation and life in this realm. There was continuous passage back and forth then between here and there, and constant telepathic connection. All of that has been forgotten there -- the knowledge has been suppressed by the dark forces. They can't change the truth, they can only try to keep it hidden from you. But just as your physics has mathematically proven the time and space continuum, it could prove our inseparable connection within the same universal laws.


S: How many souls live in Nirvana?

MATTHEW: Between 10 and 12 billion. We come and go continuously, so the population fluctuates. You're having a hard time with that number, Mother. Why?

S: It seems like a lot of souls between Earth lifetimes.

MATTHEW: I need to clarify our population, which is considerably more varied than I've explained. Although this realm is primarily for people transitioning from Earth lifetimes, who could be called "regular" residents, many others live here, too, and I'll tell you about all of them.

Although most of our regular residents are preparing for their next lifetime on Earth, depending upon the stage of their soul growth, some are preparing for incarnate or discarnate life elsewhere, even outside our galaxy, or they may choose to experience as free spirits. Probably 20 years is average for a "long-timer," but I'm not really comfortable giving that figure because many variables influence the length of residency. Some souls feel great sensitivity in all aspects, an ability acquired only in higher density vibrations, and they don't stay very long. Some are so highly evolved that they practically whisk through to their next growth placement.

Others of this spiritual evolvement status may choose to remain here quite a while. They have earned this as a reward for honored service, and they stay for a long time by your calculations. Some of these souls are very high in our hierarchy. Other long-timers are here for intensive healing from a number of difficult lifetimes. They stay in an environment of tranquility as long as they need to recuperate before choosing their next level of spiritual growth experiencing. All those souls constitute what I referred to as our "regular" population.

Another large part is transient. Some are free spirits, who come and go as their growth needs require.

The Secrets of Coral Castle

Did a Latvian immigrant rediscover the secrets to the building of the pyramids of levitation of anti-gravity? His amazing "castle" may hold clues to long-lost powers.

Coral Castle in Homestead, Florida, is one of the most amazing structures ever built. In terms of accomplishment, it's been compared to Stonehenge, ancient Greek temples, and even the great pyramids of Egypt. It is amazing - some even say miraculous - because it was quarried, fashioned, transported, and constructed by one man: Edward Leedskalnin, a 5-ft. tall, 100-lb. Latvian immigrant.

Many men have single-handedly built their own homes, but Leedskalnin's choice of building materials is what makes his undertaking so incredible. He used huge blocks of coral rock, some weighing as much as 30 tons, and somehow was able to move them and set them in place without assistance or the use of modern machinery. And therein lies the mystery. How did he do it? It's estimated that 1,000 tons of coral rock were used in construction of the walls and towers, and an additional 100 tons of it were carved into furniture and art objects:

An obelisk he raised weighs 28 tons.

The wall surrounding Coral Castle stands 8 ft. tall and consists of large blocks each weighing several tons.

Large stone crescents are perched atop 20-ft.-high walls.

A 9-ton swinging gate that moves at the touch of a finger guards the eastern wall.

The largest rock on the property weighs an estimated 35 tons.

Some stones are twice the weight of the largest blocks in the Great Pyramid at Giza.

Leedskalnin on Magnetic Current

Ed Leedskalnin wrote several booklets which he sold to tourists as they marveled at his structure. One of them, called "Magnetic Current" is available to read online at the above link. In it he reveals the results of two years of experiments with magnets. Perhaps he reveals his secrets of levitation when he writes: "The real magnet is the substance that is circulating in the metal. Each particle in the substance is an individual magnet by itself, and both North and South Pole individual magnets. They are so small that they can pass through anything. In fact they can pass through metal easier than through the air. They are in constant motion, they are running one kind of magnets against the other kind, and if guided in the right channels they possess perpetual power."

Working alone, Leedskalnin labored for 20 years - from 1920 to 1940 - to build the home he originally called "Rock Gate Park" in Florida City. The story goes that he built it after being jilted by his fiancée, who changed her mind about marrying him because he was too old and too poor. After wandering around the U.S. and Canada for several years, Leedskalnin settled in Florida City for health reasons; he had been diagnosed with tuberculosis. He began building his coral home in 1920. Then in 1936, when a planned new subdivision of homes threatened his privacy, Leedskalnin moved his entire home 10 miles to Homestead, where he completed it, and where it still stands as a tourist attraction.

How Leedskalnin managed this feat of engineering has remained a mystery all these years because, incredibly, no one saw him do it. A secretive man, Leedskalnin often worked at night by lantern light. And so there are no credible witnesses to how the small, frail man was able to move the huge blocks of rock. Even when he moved the entire structure to Homestead, neighbors saw the coral blocks being transported on a borrowed truck, but no one seems to know how Leedskalnin got them on and off the vehicle. Lots of weird stories have been told and bizarre theories proposed to explain Coral Castle. And since no witness can dispute any of them, they are all worthy of consideration.

The Theories

One story says that some curious neighbors did see how Leedskalnin moved the stones. They say he placed his hands on the stone to be lifted... and sang. Somehow this levitated the great rocks.

According to an article in Fate magazine, "some teenagers spying on him one evening claimed they saw him 'float coral blocks through the air like hydrogen balloons,' but no one took them seriously."

Frank Joseph, in the Fate magazine article, also writes, "Alternative science investigators suggest that Leedskalnin somehow learned the secret of the 'world grid,' an invisible pattern of energy lines surrounding the Earth which concentrates points of telluric power where they intersect. It was here, at one of these intersections of Earth energy, that he was supposedly able to move his prodigious stone blocks using the unseen power of our planet." Yet that still does no explain how Leedskalnin was able to tap this power, and others cannot.

Coral Castle ( quotes J. Cathie, a captain flying with National Airways Corp. of New Zealand, as saying: "Measurements from the Coral Castle position to the zero-degree and 90-degree longitude lines, when they passed through the equator, also yielded harmonics related to light and gravity. The final check of the distance between Coral Castle and grid pole A in the north, dispelled any doubt about the site being in an ideal position to allow Leedskalnin to erect the huge blocks of coral with relative ease. Measurements from all major points gave the geometric harmonics necessary for the manipulation of anti-gravity." Cathie also believes that this energy grid is also responsible for many UFO sightings.

In an article by called "The Coral Castle Mystery" in Atlantis Rising (, author Christopher Dunn asserts: "What if there's no such thing as gravity? And the natural forces we already know about are sufficient to explain the noted phenomena we have labeled as gravity? Perhaps Leedskalnin's means of working with the Earth's gravitational pull was nothing more complicated than devising a means by which the alignment of magnetic elements within his coral blocks was adjusted to face the streams of individual magnets he claims are issuing forth from the Earth with a like repelling pole."

When he was personally asked how he managed the feat, Leedskalnin replied only that he understood the laws of weight and leverage. He is quoted as saying, "I have discovered the secrets of the pyramids. I have found out how the Egyptians and the ancient builders in Peru, Yucatan, and Asia, with only primitive tools, raised and set in place blocks of stone weighing many tons."

According the The Enigma of Coral Castle, "Ed flatly disagreed with modern science, and claimed that the scientists were wrong, 'that nature is simple. ' He believed all matter consisted of individual magnets, and it is the movement of these magnets within materials, and through space, that produce measurable phenomena, magnetism, and electricity. These concepts 'involved the relationship of the Earth to celestial alignments.' He claimed to see beads of light which he believed to be the physical presence of nature's magnetism and life force, or what we term today, chi."

Was Leedskalnin being deceptive when he talked about magnetism and electricity, trying to make his accomplishment more mystical and mysterious than it actually was? Had he merely found a very clever way to manipulate the great stones with levers and pulleys? We may never know the answer. Leedskalnin took his secrets with him to his grave in 1951... secrets that await to be rediscovered.
