The Perfect Storm Series #4: Converging Juggernauts
Message from Matthew - January 19, 2006
Indictments served Bush, others; other lawsuits adding to energy momentum; more defectors from dark agenda joining light workers; purpose of media's focus; DO NOT FEAR; use discernment in channeled information; chemtrails; bodies healed in higher densities; AIDS; obesity in spiritual context; John Lennon and MLK; happenings in sleep state, dreams.
As the competitions of the 20th Olympic Winter Games are being played out on the physical plane, raising standards of sport achievements to new heights, another competition is also being played out in the invisible planes between the perennial Forces of Light and the ephemeral forces of darkness, both waging a colossal battle over the ultimate fate of billions of souls. Each team is being cheered on and assisted in all sorts of ways by an incalculable number of beings from all realms of Creation who each have a stake in the victory of those who defend their spiritual colors and carry the torch standing for who they are. Yet in the absolute sense, all these forces partake in the same grander experiment that emanated aeons ago from the creative fiat of the Creator of all Universes.
At this crossroad of Earth's history, we each have a unique and vital role to play in contributing to alleviate the many sufferings of people, animals and Mother Earth as a whole. It has been repeatedly said that we cannot allow fear to disempower us from taking the path of action we have been prepared for. Those who want to prevent Light Seekers and Light Servers from reaching their self-appointed goals are still relying on their age-old methods of mind manipulation and fear tactics to maintain in subservient domination those who can clearly see and intuitively feel the wrong path humanity is still blindly and complacently followinga path that will lead to dire consequences if no change of direction is soon made.
We are the Ones billions of kin souls and kin spiritual beings are counting on to help turn the tide of events towards Victory for the Light over the dim ploys of still misguided souls who are just, like everyone else, seeking to be loved and cherished.
Please dedicate your prayers and meditations, as guided by Spirit, in the coming two weeks, and especially in synchronous attunement at the usual time this Sunday and the following Sunday, to contribute in raising high the Torch of Light in our hearts and wherever Life is asking us to Be, so as to guide others searching for their true nature and looking to find a way to reconnect with Who they really Are. Let us renew our commitment to always think, talk, and act according to the highest standards of integrity, in accordance with the innate goodness which is at the root of our divine Self, so as to help bring about universal Peace, global Harmony and infinite Love in the hearts and minds of all human beings, for the Highest Good of All.

A Message From Our Mayan Elders
By Carlos Barrios
A lot has been said about this time, about the prophecies given by ancient wise visionary men. Some of the prophecies have been kept on secret books, some have been transmitted in a verbal way, others have risen in a series of books, documentaries, articles in magazines, newspapers and especially on the Internet. Some are extremely alarming, others have no basis and many are based on the Prophecies of the Great Traditions. All of them point out the prophetical times, as the Wise Chi Mam Maya, Don Pascual liked to call them.
All this information has wakened the interest of millions of people, but it has also created a lot of confusion and fear, since the date of December 21 of 2012 has been used as the date of the end of the World. However, this date points out the beginning of a new cycle, which is marked in the tradition of the Mayan Elders as a time of harmony and spiritual growing, this cycle is called the FIFTH SUN and each of the previous ones lasted 5,200 years.
The first cycle was of a feminine energy and fire was the element that ruled it.
The second cycle was of a masculine energy and earth was the element that ruled it.
The third cycle was of a feminine energy and air was the element that ruled it.
The fourth cycle was of a masculine energy and water was the element that ruled it.
The fifth cycle is of harmony between the masculine and feminine energy and the element that will rule it will be ether.
Each of these cycles last 5,200 years and they have been affected by the polarity of the masculine or feminine energy and of course they have also been affected by the elements. Today we are at the door of the end of the fourth cycle, which ends on December 20th of 2012, six years from now. During these six years we will be witnesses to the confrontation of the Negative and Positive forces, the eternal fight amongst polarity, the fight between the Eternal Fire and the Eternal Ice, as the Great Masters have named it, rough and magical times, prophetic times, as the Master, Don Pascual, would have said.
We do not have to close our eyes to be able to see who is dominating at this time, unlike of the Beings of Light, on the other side there is no doubt of who the boss is and no one argues about the grades of power, they work with an effectiveness, so effective that some of them even manage to appear as Warriors of Light.
The opposite happens with the Warriors of Light, because unfortunately most of them are spellbound with their Ego, convinced that they are the best and the carriers of the Truth, but they are only interested on their fight for power, fame and their excessive fondness for economical wealth.
Someone has to raise the Torch of Light and create consciousness; these leaders have to come back to their path. They have to find their path once again and assume the responsibility that was given to them at the time they received their grade of guide and the magical power that accompanies them, this is the calling of the Ancient Mayan Elders, of which the doors to build up our destiny are open! The Wise Elders are tired of waiting, they have sent this message previously and today, knowing the delicacy of this year, the violence, insanity, the tiredness of our Mother Earth, that regardless of the advise she has sent us (hurricanes, floods, droughts, The Tsunami, etc.) we are still impassive, destroying 10,000 acres of forest each day, letting 100,000 people, most of them children, die of starvation, and to us, this is just another news which does not affect us directly. A year ago the Tsunami stunned us, fear and panic grew, today this is just a vague memory. However, we have to be blind not to see we have to give a stop to this destruction, today we are alarmed with the cruel winter, with the torrential rains that are coming out of season, we also witnessed a tropical storm that was almost to become a hurricane, this without even speaking of the earthquakes in all the continents.
This was already predicted by the Prophets and visionary Mayans, as well as the attack to Iraq (with a precise date, two years before it happened), and the Terrorist Attacks (the one of the Twin Towers, the ones of France and Spain, and the ones to come).
The Mayan Elders are expecting that in the laps of the next two years there will be a great explosion of magma in the Yellowstone Park, this explosion would have the effect equivalent to the destruction that several atomic bombs would cause, giving as a result a great matter of contamination and pollution.
We are also expecting the imminent attack to Syria and the possibility of an attack to Iran, as well as the trying of overthrowing and putting a stop to the Socialist Democratic Movements that are rising in Latin America, specially the one of President Chavez in Venezuela. The last predictions, we can still put a stop to, but we have to use our powerful weapons, the inner magic in each of us, our fire ceremonies, meditations and any other techniques. It is URGENT to stop the madness of war.
The transcendence of the ending of this fourth cycle lies in the fact that we are once again in the doors of building up our destiny, the history of the actual humanity (the fourth).
The other humanities did not succeed with the purpose of taking our Mother Earth to the age of gold, the age of nobility, love, equality, peace, conscience, the Kingdom of Great Spirituality, in which every being has its space and value and where we can all grow in a simple word HARMONY, which is the premise of the Mayan World.
This marvelous opportunity is linked to Mother Earth, who as a living entity, has once again the chance of acceding to the Fifth Sky, this means to vibrate on a more subtle energy ruled by the element ETHER. This opportunity was wasted by the three previous humanities and it took Mother Earth millions of years to redo the proper conditions again.
The actual humanity, like the previous, has reached an extraordinary technological development, but it has forgotten the spiritual balance and the responsible relationship with Nature, which we are destroying and polluting more and more each time.
This was predicted by the visionary and wise Mayan Ajâ Kijab (shamans), every event that is occurring, the plagues, earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, thaws, weather changes, wars, uncontrollable viruses, the contamination and damage we are causing Nature, our own Mother, however, we remain passive as spectators, not doing or saying anything, we are accomplices who rather follow the routine that is imposed to us, the fake illusions that make us believe that we are people of success, of that success that is only the vision of a consumer materialist society and we sell our life in order to have this distractions and not confront reality, since we do not have the courage to go into our inner selves and get to know and accept us, the most important thing is to keep an image and the sterile competence of an uncontrollable urge to run, that rush to get nowhere!
We have the responsibility and possibility to change the destiny, we have our weapons, and what is most important WE ARE MORE! And we are not talking violence; our weapons are meditation, sacred ceremonies, the thought of millions of people, the amazing power of mind, creating the harmony of love, respect and spreading conscience. We can create conscience in others, we can speak, write and demonstrate that it is necessary to stop the destruction, the contamination, that we have to stop being accomplices and that our voice should be heard, that we should write to the media, to the people that run the governments, for we should remember that they are public servants and not owners of the countries, and if they receive millions of letters and e-mails, they will have to give us their attention, but lets just remember that violence is not the answer, do not look for the answer on the intellect and the strength, the answer is in the power of your heart!
We think we own the earth! Will you own it 200 years form now? Elders say the earth owns us, as a mother that nurtures us. Lets be consequent to her, lets not let the shadows fall again on her!

The Web of Love
The Web of Love is an energetic web which connects the divine essence of all beings on this planet. In that deepest part of our beings, there is in each of us a beautiful, divine essence which wants nothing more than to love and be loved. The Web of Love, though invisible to our eyes, interconnects all of us through that deepest essence. It literally surrounds and envelops our planet and all who live here. We are all interconnected by divine love. It is up to each of us how much we choose to be aware of this connection.
We are all capable of giving and receiving limitless amounts of love. Many of us have forgotten this and ended up feeling alone or uncared for in our lives. The Web of Love calls us to remember our true nature. It is a call to join together in sharing the abundance of love that flows within and between us all through consciously connecting with the Web of Love.
Connecting with the Web of Love
Breathing the Web: Here is a simple, yet powerful way of connecting with the Web of Love through breath. Close your eyes for a minute and imagine or visualize a web connecting the deepest essence of all beings around the globe. We recommend placing your hands over your heart or the center of your chest as you do this. Take a few deep breaths as you open to this image.
Now, while taking a slow, very deep inhale, say to yourself:
Your sacred love flows in to me.
Then slowly exhale fully while thinking and feeling:
My sacred love flows out to you.
Repeat this a few times while opening your heart fully to all the love present. Make sure to fill your lungs completely on the in breath and to exhale fully on breathing out. Doing this for just a minute or less can powerfully shift us into a more loving space. Try it now, and invite yourself to really let the love flow!!!
There may be times when you want to breathe the web, but cant remember the words used above. Love to me, love to you, is all you need to feel the web. You can create your own sayings, too, with words that are more meaningful to you. The most important element is your intention to connect with all people on this good planet through the Web of Love.
Bringing the Web into the World. If you are ready to powerfully transform your life, consider taking the Web of Love out into your every day world. You might start your day upon awakening and end your day just before sleeping with the above exercise. As you start your day at work, or whenever you feel stressed, take a minute to stop and deeply breathe in the ever present love of the web and of everyone around you. Then on the exhale, fully breathe your love out to all. You can do it with your eyes open or closed.
Throughout the day you can breathe the Web of Love during your daily activities. You can silently breathe the web while waiting at a stoplight, with the checker at the checkout stand, or as you pass someone on the street. Each time we open to this connection and practice it, we strengthen the love both in ourselves and in the web! All of this can be done in less than a minute, yet as you practice it more and more, dont be surprised if you find your life transforming in big ways!
Important Note. In opening to loving connection with all people while breathing the Web of Love, a few have experienced difficulty when a person with very strong negative energy came into their thoughts. If something like this occurs, there is no need to focus on sharing love with someone to whom you are clearly not able to open. It may be best to consciously tell this persons energy to leave your thoughts, so that you can again open to connecting with the hearts of all to whom you are capable.
Breathing the Web of Love With a Friend. Once you are comfortable with this exercise on your own, consider going to greater depth with a friend. Choosing to either keep your eyes closed or to gaze into each others eyes, feel the love while breathing deeply together: Your sacred love flows in to me. My sacred love flows out to you. It doesnt matter that you might both be breathing love in or out at the same time. Just let it flow in whatever way feels best. Once you feel complete with your friend, dont forget to take a minute to share the love youve just generated with all beings on the planet!
For other empowering activities, see Ideas and Exercises. We also invite you to join with others in supportive groups to form Circles of Love. Together, we are transforming both ourselves and our planet through breathing more love into our lives!
