Famously known over 40 years ago for his mystical journey up beyond this 3rd dimensional plane into what is perceived as the ‘angelic hierarchy or realms’, James Hurtak continues to share insights and information to awaken us to our life’s purpose as well as connect to our higher self and more.Covering vast themes as futurism, archaeology, theology, quantum realms, sound, remote viewing and the development of consciousness, this seems at odds to the nightly news of political intrigue, crime and the terrible mayhem and savagery that’s happening in so many countries on earth today.Yet, both he and his wife Desiree acknowledge, like many of us, that there is also an upward spiral taking place in the field of consciousness and expanding ones awareness … and they see NZ as being a mystical island country, that initiated the template for woman to gain the right to vote, freeing up the divine feminine and anchoring this much needed - balancing archetype.Also, that NZ being a country that instituted so many early social reforms that in many ways due to our isolation from the rest of our planet, allowed us to become an embryonic catalyst for new ideas, consciousness and spiritual insight. The emerging microcosm for the planetary macrocosm.
Though the book ‘Keys of Enoch’ was written over 40 years ago, and has coded in it layers and layers of information that takes many years of self-reflection, meditation, prayer and silence to decode, they have between them just completed a new book called the ‘Over Self Awakening’ of our higher (spiritual) self, which is an integral part of us, but at a higher level. This higher self, which we have forgotten or dissociated from for as long as we can remember is the key to our coming into alignment with our spiritual purpose so that we can in this life, finally manifest a destiny that breaks the spell that we have previously found ourselves in.The fact that there are multiple crisis’s across the board within our biosphere, from ecological, to economic to societal, it is during critical times like now that these evolutionary drivers for transformation, forces us to take the necessary steps to evolve our consciousness to initiate the desired change towards peace and right living. That this is happening now at this critical point in the earth’s evolution is likened to us entering the birth canal to a greater reality, and this is the thrust of what is happening to more and more people as they close their eyes, sit still and engage with their inner process.As archaeologists they have notice that scattered in various sites globally there are vestiges of the mother principle many in statue form and that like the Black Madonna that Rupert Sheldrake has for a long time shown interest in (as well as Andrew Harvey) there is a hidden current, under the aegis of the holy spirit that has been silently with us all the time. Now certain researchers at Stanford University in California via remote viewing and remote healing are overcoming the old paradigms of science that are traditionally male and scientifically orientated, and going beyond just the focussing on data, and not experience. So the current awakening is of the experiential self aligning to a higher resonant state through music, art and future science and in Tesla’s words, the study of the invisible that is making the Hurtak’s work so exciting and compelling.Covering sound work within the Great pyramid of Cheops on the Giza plateau especially around resonance and frequency overtones, both in the Kings Chamber and also in the Grand Gallery too.That the geometry of the great pyramid encodes a key to life that we are beginning to decode. Russian experiments with numerous prisoners today are showing a change in consciousness when exposed to pyramid energies based on the specific degree’s of the geometric architecture of the Great pyramid aligned in the correct latitude and longitude. Shows how archetypes can influence consciousness.Chanting in the Grand Gallery in the Great Pyramid, built up the certain frequency that light that came into being. This James talks about in this interview. And many other things.That when aligned our body is a resonant tuning fork and that when we ‘get clear’ we can tap into the local and greater universe .They emphasise again and again that it is the heart that is the most important part of the body and the love that it radiates from within.Using Sound with Stephen Halpern. His early work Spectrum Suite and his new album’ Sacred Name and Sacred Codes’ uses sacred sound by using the name for God in all the world’s languages to realise that these names have an extremely deep resonant frequency and when we connect the dots, we see that there is a higher mind and magnificence behind all of existence. And the realisation is that our body temple is basically a tuning fork and vibratory musical vehicle for light.This translated from the bodies chakra’s to what Christians texts call the ‘seven seals’ that extends into Revelation, John, Chapter 14 that we will sing a new song, is all to do with sound and frequency and that today we have the tools to decode and then embrace. Thus, announcing the orchestration of a new realm of consciousness to emerge. And, that the over-self can make itself known and extend itself into a far greater, more truer pattern.What it is demonstrating is that we are architects of the new dawn, shaping a new destiny as we comprehend new insights into becoming multidimensional beings waking up and integrating into a magnificent universe.On their web site www.Keysofenoch.com they have 30 albums relating to sacred sound from a wide variety of composers from around the world. That we are now realising that music and sound is one of the missing keys to higher awareness. What John the Divine would call a ‘Christed’ humanity that has gone through the stages of dualism and suffering and isolation into one of partnership and one of networking in the realisation that we are essentially ‘embryo Gods’.And the inner ‘I am that I am’ of the human being dissolves into and becomes one with the, I Am That I Am of the Divine Mind.Waking up humanity - and this quickening is happening globally more and more as people experience unique and profound circumstances that they are realising that we are far more than that ever thought we were …Challenges today are bringing us electronic pollution and the bombardment of our body temple as if we are living is a microwave oven …http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stephen_Sinatra and the need to understand grounding and walk barefooted closer to the earth.Sacred language and supersoul music allows us to build up our subtle bodies, to a higher level so as to build immunity to the constant barrage of electromagnetic pollution that assails and assaults our body daily. This to combat the medical imbalance that is affecting young ones especially in our cities- globally.Another part of the interview covers the realisation that we will find hundreds of more life affirming planets in our local quadrant of our galaxy, that we are also preparing ourselves for eventual contact with off planet beings many of them more spiritually advanced and who have conquered energy producing and social imbalances. This brings us into realising that we are on the verge of a greater galactic knowingness and being part of a cosmic family. That our prayers, meditations are being heard and that there is fast coming a time when the star nations are coming back, this message comes to us from numerous global indigenous tribes.However the need for us to become far more balanced and reside in inner peace is still the challenge of the day and in particular the unconditional love that has to burst forth! And that the quantum change to bring this shift into being, is still being refined and manifesting.That we come from light and that we will return to light and that this is the message of many ancient cosmologies.Other areas this interview covers.From the Brazilian healer who has so much light coming through his body that NASA scientists can not explain this, such is the power of transformation - like lightening boltsRupert Sheldrake … ESP seeing if you can guess who is calling on the phone, as we are all part of a grand unified field.Covering new Russian and other scientific understanding of the DNA wave and that sound can alter our DNA.What it is to surrender, and what it is to humble ourselves and work in cooperation for the betterment of the whole? That working with holarchies with many people … through our heart … we become part of a more unified field.What is forgiveness?The Book Over Self Awakening introduces the coming of a global and universal human being.The falling away of onion skins is used as an analogy for us to get there.Music – sacred name sacred codes …That we are realigning every cell in our being and every atom as well … meditation and prayer is so important and using the sacred names of God, the Divine Spirit and the the Feminine Principle … opens us to an incandescence of that of an embryo God.The Hurtaks have also worked with indigenous peoples in Brazil, and the Shavanti by representing them at the United Nations, in relationship to destroyed habitat and globalised expansion and their connection to mother earth, not only to’ Pachamama’ that is enshrined into countries legislation as in Ecuador and Bolivia. This leads directly to the connection with the sacred feminine within us. But more so to the deeper or overarching virtues of the Divine Mother and of the Holy Spirit, and the creative energy that comes forth from this understanding. Desiree mentions that the holy trinity actually embraces the divine feminine, and this is what has been lost, but is awakening as of now.The fact that we here in NZ are immersed in the Pacifist Ocean that was originally called after ‘a sea of peace’ underlies the need for us to recognise the critical challenges to living in accord with our neighbour, both locally and globally. Hence Nuclear Free NZ is proud to carry this mantle.http://www.futurescience.orghttp://www.keysofenoch.comNEW CONSCIOUSNESSAuckland Conference on 30th & 31st AUGUST- book YOUR ticket now ...www.newconsciousness.net
There is no PLANet B.Sustainability is not just to do with the environment, but also our culture or society, how it thinks and what it does en-masse on a daily basis. Imagine - if our society is living sustainably and we are ‘consciously’ not creating consumer waste; that all our purchases are based on quality products, for example ‘clean food’ that everything is biodegradable, on how little waste (packaging) there is, we will be making huge progress.That reducing our intake is also at the forethought of our minds, that all things are being recycled or reused and that everyone is mindful that we all are part of a ‘closing the loop’ culture our ‘knowingness’ will automatically realise that we are part of a greater whole.This holistic notion, that we are embedded in the greater dynamics of the biosphere - of us all elegantly cycling ‘through’ everything and being aligned with nature as in ‘Cradle to Cradle’ the idea promulgated by William McDonough, we will be on our way home to being more ‘at one’ with the planetary ecology that we are embedded in.At present we are far from it, as this is not being languaged from any level of Government, who at present have no intention of empowering the community to become more 'conscious' - solely because they are not.This interview with Julio covers his upbringing in Brazil, where it’s the disparity of social economics, that widens the gap between the many poor people just subsisting and not really living in a healthy highly educated community.
Even if the environment was actually ok, it’s the waste and misuse of resources, such as planned obsolescence that we are constantly working to pay off something that is breaking down, that is putting a huge burden on the environment, that is still an increasing issue today. Even here in NZ, the landfills are becoming full of cheep junk that maybe only over the last few weeks, were purchased as cheap children’s toys etc.We are living in a throw-away society, that keeps throwing out the trash, but on our small planet we are actually ‘throwing in’ and this means we are covering ‘us’ and our great sustainer with our own waste.In Brazil, poor people living in an unsustainable way can mean large families, huge pressure on the mother, who may have no way to keep her power over her fertility due to overbearing patriarchal attitudes.Sustainability to many people is very intangible, for in so many ways we are unable to see it, as it carries through vast cycles that we only perceive a very small portion of this process, yet we need to embrace it if we are to survive as a civilisation.Where is our breath coming from, our water, our food and where does our waste go? What is the process, is it a bio harmonic process, or is it pushed out somewhere into the environment as in ‘out of sight out of mind?’ Yet, knowing that on a small planet, it will eventually come back to bite us as we push up against the limits to growth.Ubuntu from Southern Africa - I am what I am because of who we all are!
‘We are all connected’ the belief in a universal bond of sharing that connects all humanity is a word that links us all together as 21st century inhabitants of Spaceship Earth.Closing the loop. The reason we are not getting sustainability embedded in the economic system is because our economic model is old paradigm, based on hard nosed manufacturing of consumer products, with planned obsolescence still driving the process where washing machines, fridges, vacuum cleaners and toasters are built only to last an exceptionally short lifetime, when once they lasted 3 times as long.Today we are still wedded to the industrial revolution and production and now consumerism, and new economic ways have to be encouraged and thought through. The circular economy, or 'Cradle to Cradle' is one new way, but needs greater support and more adherents and champions.When we call for change, we have a tendency to talk about something outside of us, like They, or the corporations, or the planet, the politicians, some third party, however we need to talk in the first person, because it is us, we, and ourselves and realise the changes that need to take place, our attitude, starts with us, 'inside' - in our home, in our community.Greater education and learning is the key.Working towards life, instead of profit is going to be the next step in sustainability.This interview covers ethics, morality, the values that Julio finds in the NZ psyche and what this county can do, what it has stood for and that it can still be a global leader and trail blazer to more conscious ways of doing things. This is very important because the world is in need of new templates and living examples.NZ still has the potential, evidently in South America, New Zealand is seen as a country that is ethical and having good values - having a particular energy that inspires one to become optimistic - its image of clean and green and even with its challenges is far superior to most countries. Note that the recent European migrants have only been here for around 200 years, and with a small population have not had the capacity to really plunder our natural resources, or over pollute during this time span.Julio sees New Zealand as having a high concentration of positive deviants. That NZ can be a model for the rest of the world and that Waiheke Island is the microcosm of the NZ macrocosm. He would like to combine NZ’s systems such as something akin to the Resource Management Act into Brazil, and with many of our other social benefits as well.With the recent invoking of Pachamama in Ecuador and Bolivia and giving the earth ‘rights of nature’ this awareness is bringing our focus to that which sustains us, that is also being seen by the Kogi in Columbia. That our relationship and connection with the earth has to be acknowledged and coupled up with.We are most definitely on the cusp of major change globally, as ecological, economic and societal disturbances ring alarm bells throughout spaceship earth. How will the 7 billion plus crew remember their collective call to action and take their stations to be the change we want to see.
The saying that ‘we are spiritual beings having an earth experience’ is resonating with more and more people as this timely clarion call inspires us to action. And as we awaken to the realisation that our society is coming up against limits to our outmoded thinking, belief systems and thresholds - to what is unbridled growth, we are starting to reflect on the inevitable consequences of ‘business as usual.’‘When the joy of compassionate service is married to a practical and pragmatic drive to transform all existing economic, social, and political institutions, a radical and potentially all-transforming holy force is born.’This coming from the quintessential sacred activist, Andrew Harvey a global transition leader who invokes the sacred in every thought, deed and action in what is our collective … ever expanding cosmology.If there was ever a time to fulfill our hearts calling for a better world, it has to be now.
From Mahatma Gandhi to Nelson Mandela, the Dalai Lama, and Martin Luther King, Jr., we have over the last century witnessed beings stand up to the status quo and against the odds, courageously show(ed) that their passion to represent the repressed and downtrodden continued, unabated.Here in our country of Aotearoa we too have a growing number of people, who surrendering to a greater calling than service to self, devote their lives to doing what they feel, and intuitively know is right, to stand firm in the face of adversity as well as recognising the growing general consensus that things are definitely not sustainable.Where once virtues, values and ethics were more deeply embedded in our community and that they were intrinsic to what we thought and felt society should embrace, yet we are also continuing to witness on a daily basis a greater void in the world. This emptiness is in many ways being foisted upon us from the global corporate juggernaut that has overreached itself and now, ‘sacred activists’ are riding the pendulum that’s finally starting to swing life back towards balance and that of community.Todays new calling is for positive change, for deep dialogue, to open to new ideas, innovation and expanding the parameters of new paradigm thinking. At the same time bringing with it a warm hearted countenance, that unifies the spirit and connects with the common aspirations of so many people who have been affected, but have been struggling and unable to truly contribute to the world.Thus, we are all being called to participate in this upwelling of transformation, in both the outer world and our inner realms especially our celebrating of our reverence for life.So the question that now lends itself to your continuing curiosity, are you a sacred activist? Are you a metaphysical change agent? Do you know anyone who is? And, do you aspire to ignite your own inner wisdom and participate?If this ideal feels compelling to you:Join Diane Marama Winder and Michael FleckAs we share and express what has been bubbling into our consciousness as that of the ‘sacred activist.’*****Diane Marama Winder is an inter-spiritual guide, international teacher and intuitive messenger.
