This is Ken Kalb
This massive convergence of Spirit for the Total Solar Eclipse is a vision
come manifest for me. For the grand cross at the four fixed-sign gates of avataric
descent are the four points of maximum focus of cosmic energy --
beckoning our active participation. I am ecstatic that so many have become aware of
this August 11th flashpoint and thrilled there are gatherings all over this planet.
I honor and congratule all who will be joining in radiance and collective attunement
during this sacred marriage of Sun and Moon in the sign of the Heart. I believe this
will be the largest intentional convergence of Spirit yet in the history of humankind.
Our passionate prayer and radiant love amplified by the potency of this historic
birthing point is certain to boost the vibrational frequency in the unified field of consciousness,
and positively boost the Earth's evolution and destiny.
Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, "friendship can be considered to be the
masterpiece of nature." August 11th is a time to honor Spirit and celebrate friendship
and the transformative power of pure joy. We now have the occasion to know we are
one global humanity: each of us radiant cells in the diverse and glorious collective
Being with One Radiant Soul at our center.
The Grand Planetary Alignment on May 3, 2000 is closely centered in the
Taurean or manifesting avataric gateway. LightShift -- January 1, 2000 -- is at the
mid or release point of August 11 and May 3rd. I believe our mobilization toward
Unity in Spirit during each of these flashpoints is part of the divine plan which
will raise the light quotient on Earth to birth the new dispensation in the sweetest and brightest

Blessings to all who have put so much love and energy into this convergence.
We merge together now with Mother Earth in our moment of collective birth of
the Aquarian Christ. From cell to soul we are all awakening to our greater Self. Our
Will to Good is the key to Earth becoming a Sacred Planet through our self-initiated
mobilization. May the beauty in our hearts, the brilliance of our minds, and the
divinity of our spirits greet the new dawn.
In loving service,
Let's Turn on the Light of the World

Subject: August 11 and 17 events
Hi Jean! Thanks so much for putting all this information together and
sending it out to so many of us lightworkers. You are truly a gem to do
I was fortunate to be very involved in the Harmonic Convergence that
evolved in Boulder CO in 1987, so I find myself wondering about this time
and how I can be of service to what is coming through and shifting. Part
of me is disillusioned by how we have evolved since that time, ie I had
envisioned we would be further along in peace, harmony and universal love
than we are, than I am. So that part of me just wants to dance and honor
Spirit through the gift of my allowing Her to move through me.
Another part of me knows that it is in helping others that this change
occurs, a service to assist ... helping an older person, feeding someone
hungry, etc. Envisioning is great, but follow up with action, letting
Spirit we envision work through us in a caring way is even better.
Part of me realizes... if I can release, bless and give unconditional
love to the person who bugs me the most at this time, I am releasing my
part, my responsibility that adds to the negativity, the hatred, the
unkindness, the impatience that exists... and most of us have at least
one person who challenges us in this way.
Part of me trusts, the world will continue, she is full of a vast wisdom
that is part of a vaster universe. She has lived for a very long
herstory beyond that which we know. Perhaps she will change, but she
Part of me remembers that she is filled with millions of other
representations of Spirit who struggle daily to eat, to be alive, and
healthy, to care for their children, and I hope that ALL our brothers and
sisters will have the same gifts we share... that those struggling to
eat, to have a roof over their heads, to care for loved ones, who live in
terror or without freedom will know how good it can be here.
And part of me knows it is time... for all the luxuries and necessities
of freedom to be shared amongst us all on this planet so we may ALL enjoy
peacefully the bliss of these times...women in Afghanistan, children in
Africa, Serbs in Kosovo, the meditation group in CHina and on and on and on.
Blessings to you dear brother,

* On August 11 on Mt. Shasta, the Lightworkers of this area are
preparing to go on the mountain to honor this greatest event in the
history of this planet.
* A large group of us is preparing to meet at the "ski bowl" at
5:30 am., for a two hour sunrise ceremony. (JW The place where the
old ski bowl used to be is up a paved road that comes out of the
city of Mt. Shasta in an Eastern direction for about 13 miles.) * Then
at the Sandflat area, (JW Sandflat is an open area on the sides of
Mt. Shasta where there are no trees on about 100 acres. It is off
the road to the left before you get to Panther Meadows.) * there will
be a day of celebration for our personal victory and ascension, and
the victory of the planet, from sun up to sun down with meditations,
speakers, prayers, singing and dancing.
* If you decide to come and join the crowd, bring a sack lunch and
plenty of drinking water, as there is no natural drinking water
available at Sandflat. Also bring a hat to protect from the sun.
* Archangel Michael, in His latest message of July 19/99, stated that
this day of August 11 is a day of such importance and magnitude for
the planet and humanity, that we should really consider it as the
long, long, prophesied and awaited "Second Coming ". It is not a
physical coming of course, "not yet", but it is the opening of the
portal of the Christ consciousness and the Christ grid for the planet
and for all of us. This day will denote the beginning of our
dimensional shift, and we have been assured that the world and
humanity will never be the same again. Each one on this planet will
receive their own initiation according to their level of spiritual
preparedness for this awesome event. From that day forward, events
and changes on this planet will start accelerating at a pace that we
cannot yet imagine with our third dimensional mind at this time. We
will soon witness some major changes in all areas of life here and in
the structure of our society. Be prepared for the eventual collapsing
of the old paradigm and the old system. Let it go and make room for
* Archangel Michael stated that all our emotions will be greatly
amplified from that day on, negative ones as well as positive ones.
He assured us that it is a great day of rejoicing and asked us to
remain in love, in peace, in harmony and in trust of the process. If
we choose fear over love, these emotions will be greatly amplified as
well, and it will make the transition and the shift much more
difficult for those who will be making this choice. I ask all of you
to start "now" to choose love in every moment of your lives and let
go of all fears, no matter what form they take. Let's go with the flow,
lets open up our hearts and minds to the great, great changes that
are soon coming. The changes we have been hearing about since we have
been born, are now at our doorstep, ready to be manifested.
* There is no one more excited, happy and joyous about this time of
great changes than I, and I ask you to get contaminated with this same
excitement and joy as well.
* There is nothing to fear, the time of our deliverance on this planet
is now at hand, and will be gradually manifesting within the next few
months in a greater and greater mode of acceleration.
* The Lemurian Brotherhood under Mt. Shasta have let me know that they
are preparing to come out very soon, and they are very excited about
this as well. We can expect to start having some physical contacts with them in the
year 2000. They will start making contacts with those who have a direct
mission with them first before they start showing themselves more

Subject: Comet Lee ~ "What Can We Expect of August 11 to 18th"?
I write to help with the ebb and flow of "feeling" and "opinion" about this
wonderfully portentious time and, particularly, the strained inclusion of the
rather frightening Comet Lee. It is curious that we seem to have something
of a "news blackout" on this, isn't it; though not so difficult to
understand since it has been a matter for NASA's "military wing" for a little
For readers who want to find out more I would suggest (if still open):
For those who don't have time, the central opportunity, in a nutshell, is
that those of us who will spend time using our meditative power will be
attempting (successfully) to regulate the influence of the solar flares and
coronal mass ejections from the Sun, thus influencing the trajectory
'options' of this comet.
There are, as always, levels of opportunity and effort. The names of the
Angelic Kingdom most relevant to this effort are: Zaphkiel; Zadkiel;
Cumael; Raphael; Haniel; Michael; & Gabriel... it would be good for
everyone to use these in some way.
For those with more time the work of Dan Winter and those at Johannine Grove
have much insight on the sacred-scientific aspects of this which, excluding
tabloid speculation on the reliability of Nostradamus' Century 10, Quatrain
72 (and others), speaks with tremendous insight and a most powerful, useful,
voice. For those so inclined, please see:
For the children everywhere, I celebrate the coming of the Warrior's of
Light. The time is now. And So It Is!
May we all walk in beauty, all-ways.

I am forwarding an email i received today along with a couple of links,
which I hope you will have a few moments to look at. I gather from what you
have said that you do not give credence to the possible dark ceremony that
may be preformed at the pyramid. Obviously there can be know way for us to
know for sure on the external plane, for the very nature of such ceremonies
is one of secrecy. But the more I learn of the power of ritual and
symbolism I understand how and why such an act could occur.
If you read the email below, you will see that the focus of the meditation
to counter the darkness is one of encompassing both the positive and the
negative rather than increasing the polarity. Love is our doorway out of

Notification of the Matrix Project Worldwide
WORLDWIDE CEREMONY FOR UNITY AND HARMONY OF OUR HUMAN CONSCIOUSNESS
MATRIX PROJECT -- AUGUST 11th
I ask everyone to please have patience with our return replies...we are
getting hits from everywhere in the world on this Sacred Symbol....
THE SYMBOL HAS NOW BEEN CONFIRMED AS APPEARING IN A CROP CIRCLE NEAR
STONEHENGE. VERIFICATION HAS BEEN DONE IN REGARDS TO THE DARK MOTHER
CEREMONY AND IT IS SCHEDULED TO GO ON THE 10TH UNTIL THE 14 THE OF AUG.1999.
THIS CEREMONY IS BEING CONDUCTED WITH ITS CENTRAL FOCUS IN EGYPT WITH
RADIATING SUPPORT GROUPS FROM AROUND THE WORLD.
OUR TASK IS TO COUNTERACT THIS CEREMONY. THIS IS A DOORWAY TO A
CONSCIOUSNESS SHIFT TO A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT AWARENESS OF OUR REALITY. TO
SHIFT CONSCIOUSNESS FROM THIS DUALISTIC POINT OF VIEW WE ALL NEED TO PLAY
OUR PART. AS THIS OTHER ORGANIZATION APPLIES PRESSURE ON THIS DOORWAY TO
KEEP IT CLOSED, WE MUST APPLY AN EQUAL PRESSURE ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE. THIS
WAY THE DOORWAY DISAPPEARS AND WE BEGIN OUR SHIFT.
THE FOCUS OF OUR INTENTION IS:UNITY THROUGH COMPASSION AND AWARENESS OF THE BLINDNESS
CAUSED BY DUALISTIC THINKING. IT IS THROUGH THE ACCEPTANCE OF OUR ROLE THAT WE GIVE
EQUAL IMPORTANCE TO - GOOD AND EVIL - LIGHT AND DARK - WE END THE POWER STRUGGLE
AND OPEN THE DOORWAY TO OUR HIGHEST CONSCIOUSPOSSIBILTIY AND RELEASE OUR FREE WILL OF
OUR SPIRITUAL BEING
THE TRIGGER IS SIMILAR TO THE 100 MONKEY PRINCIPLE. ONCE A MINIMUM OF 11%
of the entire population enter into an awareness, we all learn this
awareness AUTOMATICALLY. THE UNIQUENESS OF THIS 11 NUMBER, IS THAT ONCE
11% FOCUS ON WANTING SOMETHING THERE IS AN AUTOMATIC AND CORRESPONDING 11%
FOCUSED ON NOT WANTING THE SAME THING. THAT BRINGS OUR PERCENTAGE TO 22

PLANET IN ONE FORM OR ANOTHER AS AN INDICATION OF THE DIVINE IN US ALL
Please focus the image of the Matrix symbol found at the following Web Site:
Please Forward this message to every Religious, Spiritual, Cultural,
Governmental, and concerned organization that you can think that will send
this network around the world. This is our destiny by choice. Me must
exercise that option NOW.
Please do not be attached to any outcome. Place the symbol in your mind and
focus your personal intention on:
COMPASSION FOR ALL HUMANITY AND OUR ENTIRE NATURAL WORLD THROUGH ACCEPTANCE
OF OUR UNIQUE DIFFERENCES UNITED IN ONE CAUSE - OUR CONTINUED EXISTENCE IN
THE NATURAL ORDER OF CREATION.
THIS IS A TIME FOR GENTLE COMPASSION WITH NO FEAR OR ATTACHMENT OTHER THAN
UNITY OF INTENTION AND PURPOSE WORLDWIDE. PLEASE TAKE TIME WITH YOURSELVES
AND FAMILIES TO OPENLY RESOLVE AND DISPARITIES OR ISSUES THEY YOU MAY HAVE
WITH THEM, YOURSELVES AND OTHERS. LET GO OF ANY BURDENS NOW AND TURN
AROUND TO FACE THE LIGHT IN THE DOORWAY, RATHER THAN THE DARK OF YOUR OWN
SHADOW BEHIND YOU AS YOU STAND IN THIS DOORWAY TO CREATION. THE TIME TO
TURN AROUND IS ARRIVING. THE OUTCOME IS WONDROUS.
Thank you ALL for your tremendous help, and please continue in earnest to
expand your own links to this CREATION story. You can, like each of us,
exercise your choice with this Sacred Ceremony for your life. Please open
your understanding to as many people as possible.

UPDATE ON THE WORLDWIDE SACRED CEREMONY - THE MATRIX PROJECT
August 6 1999: UPDATE AND CORRECTION ON GMT TIMING
There has been a resounding call of support from around the world for the
Matrix Project and the intention that it is being brought forward. The
response has been overwhelming and we are doing our best to communicate
with every group that has replied to our call for UNITY.
Many people have commented on the Dualistic concept of Light and Dark.
This is not about a struggle of Light verses Dark nor Good verses Evil.
The Matrix Project acknowledges these opposing forces only to balance and
move beyond the influences of this form of polarity.
We are approaching the moment where we will have the opportunity to Unite
the Collective Consciousness and Spirit, of Humanity. It is through the
acceptance of our potential and the releasing of the influences of
imbalance (shadow), that we allow the Light of Creation AND our individual
Creation Story to flow in hearts of all peoples.
The Matrix Project Calls For Collective Unity and FOCUS.
The Symbol brought forward through this Project represents Unity of ABOVE
AND BELOW - in the the HUMAN REALM. The Matrix Group asks that we quiet
our minds through the ACCEPTANCE of ALL Points of VIEW, and asks each of
you to walk in your truth together.
The Symbol is a point of Unity, mainly because it is present throughout ALL
Spiritual, Religious, and Healing Organizations around the world. The
Matrix Group does not disrespect any form of Human Spiritual practice, nor
does it wish to start a new one.
THIS IS A CALL FOR HUMAN - COLLECTIVE - SPIRITUAL- UNITY, and the upcoming
events provides us with a unique opportunity. Let ALL Humans express
themselves EQUALLY, TOGETHER and with one INTENTION, through this Sacred
Ceremony - Worldwide.
CORRECTION ON THE TIMING FOR THE CENTRAL FOCUS- 10.11AM - GMT. August 11th
This is the Summer Time (Savings time) in England. Many groups worldwide
will be holding their focus from the 7th of August until the 14th, with the
major emphasis placed on the 11th of August.
Thank you EVERYONE for your amazing replies and support. Please continue
to open your understanding to as many people, organizations and contacts
possible around the World.

yourself, or the earth that you will take care of our planet. Think of it
as a new millennium's resolution! It will make a difference. We have free
will for a reason.

Discovery Channel To Cover Eclipse
By DAVID BAUDER
AP Television Writer
NEW YORK (AP) _ The Discovery Network plans three hours of live
television coverage next Wednesday of something mom warned you
never to look at directly _ a solar eclipse.
The cable channel's cameras will follow the 60-mile wide path
where the sun is totally obscured by the moon, from its start in
southern England, through France, Germany, Austria, Hungary,
Romania to the Middle East and its conclusion in India.
It's the most extensive live coverage of any event in
Discovery's 15-year history and, the network believes, the first
time TV has followed an eclipse in such detail.
Eclipse coverage runs from 6 to 9 a.m. EDT, with an hour-long
wrapup that night at 10 p.m.
``Human beings have always been totally enthralled by
eclipses,'' said Discovery general manager Mike Quattrone, ``but if
you wanted to see an eclipse, you had to be geographically lucky.''
People shouldn't stare at the sun because there's a risk of eye
damage, but cameras can safely capture an eclipse.
Discovery will do more than beam three hours of the sun. It will
explain the science behind the eclipse and show how people in each
country react to it. The network hopes to climax its coverage with
an arresting image of the eclipse over the Taj Mahal.
Discovery will pull its coverage together with the help of
Discovery Europe and a dozen European TV affiliates. British
broadcaster Mary Nightingale will be the host.
The last total solar eclipse in the mainland United States took
place in 1979. Discovery has time to make plans for the next one _
it comes on Aug. 21, 2017.
