Earth Changes

What does "Earth Changes" mean?

There seems to be some lack of clarity in the usage of the term ‘earth changes.’ Is it a ‘new-age term’ indicating prophesised major changes, or is it a general term, also including well known scientific predictions?
For example – will ‘the big one’, a devastating earthquake in California, long predicted by both scientists and clairvoyants, be understood as part of ‘earth changes’ or ‘just’ as a natural disaster?
For us it is the same thing – earth changes - regardless if it is a clairvoyant or a scientist who predicts it.

Famous seers in the area of Earth Changes are
Nostradamus http://www.sacred-texts.com/nos/
Mother Shipton http://www.dreamscape.com/morgana/helene.htm
http://www.museumofhoaxes.com/shipton.html
Edgar Cayce http://www.edgarcayce.org/
Gordon Michael Scallion http://www.matrixinstitute.com/ http://www.crystalinks.com/gordon.html

It is hard to find any clairvoyants that do not predict major changes in the near future.
It is not hard to find scientists that also predict major changes in the near future.

Typical areas where both scientists and clairvoyants predict major earth changes in the near future are Earthquakes and global warming.
But a closer scrutiny will also show both clairvoyants and scientists talking about areas such as climate change, shifting of magnetic poles, shifting of geographic poles, spread of diseases etc.
A typical difference is that prophecies tend to predict with some precision (and varying success in that), while scientists talk about probabilities.
In fact we believe the apparent ‘precision’ in the clairvoyant predictions is a misunderstanding of the connection between our everyday reality and the astral field from where the predictions come; in our opinion, scientists and clairvoyants are in the same boat, only able to predict probabilities or ‘windows’ as Gordon Michael Scallion calls them.

That our modern culture is not a stable one, that in fact breakdowns of enormous proportions is a distinct possibility, is not just a matter for clairvoyants and geologists etc, at least one famous expert on myths are seeing the same signs embedded in our culture

Joseph Campbell (1904 – 1987) (http://www.jcf.org/ ) one of the foremost authorities of our age on ancient mythological images, characters and tales, writes: The first function of mythology is to sanctify the place you are in.”

an ancient chart of the zodiac

“Myth makes a connection between our waking consciousness and the mystery of the universe. It gives us a map or picture of the universe and allows us to see ourselves in relationship to nature, as when we speak of Father Sky and Mother Earth.
It supports and validates a certain social and moral order.
The Ten Commandments being given to Moses by God on Mount Sinai is an example of this. Lastly, it helps us pass through and deal with the various stages of life from birth to death. The first function of mythology is to sanctify the place you are in.”

Joseph Campbell: “Reflections on the Art of Living

Myths are meant for opening the mind, not for satisfying it.
“For the ancient Greeks the gods were real. A Greek who saw a thunderbolt was reminded of Zeus, and so reminded of another, simultaneous system of reality. In contrast, when we see a thunderbolt, we see a weather pattern and are probably reminded to watch the six o’clock news for the weather report.”

Robert A. Johnson: “Ecstasy”
Here from Lucinda Vardey (ED):”God in All Worlds”


There are two ways of misunderstanding a myth
“Well there are only two ways of misunderstanding a myth and our civilisation has managed to do both. One is to think that the myth refers to a geographical or historical fact – Jesus rose from the dead, Moses got the law at the top of the mountain, that sort of thing.
The other is to think that the myth refers to a supernatural fact or to an actual event that is going to happen in the future – the resurrection of Jesus, or the second coming.
Our whole religious tradition is based upon these two misunderstandings. One, the misunderstanding of myth as a reference to historical facts; the other misunderstanding myth as reference to spiritual facts either of something that is somewhere invisible, or something that is going to happen sometime in the future. It is a terrible tragedy. These misunderstandings of our myth have caused us to loose the vocabulatory of the spirit.”

Joseph Campbell: “The Way of Myth”



The ancient sacred writings Do not clearly distinguish history from symbology
Compare the above Campbell quote with this from Paramahansa Yogananda:

“The ancient sacred writings do not clearly distinguish history from symbology; rather they often intermix the two in the tradition of scriptural revelation. […] Bhagavad Gita was very cleverly written by Saga Vyasa by interweaving historical facts with psychological and spiritual truths […]
In interpreting scripture, one must not, therefore, ignore the factual and historical elements in which the truth was couched.
One must distinguish between an ordinary illustration of a moral doctrine or recounting of a spiritual phenomenon and that of a deeper esoteric intent. One has to know how to recognise the signs of the convergence of material illustrations with spiritual doctrines without trying to drag a hidden meaning out of everything. One must know how to intuit the cues and express declarations of the author and never fetch out meanings not intended, mislead by enthusiasm and the imaginative habit of trying to squeeze spiritual significance from every word or statement. The true way to understand scripture is through intuition, attuning oneself to the inner realisation of truth”.

The Bhagavad Gita
translated and commented by Paramahansa Yogananda p. xxii f.



Myth as a projection of the collective unconscious
“Jung laid bare the connection between psychology, spirituality and mythical symbolism. Through comprehension of the archetypical world we can begin to understand the way the spiritual energy manifests itself through humanity. The instincts and archetypes together form the “collective unconscious”.
“The supreme pattern and personalities in archetypes are shaped by the collective human transcendent experience. They have existed from the earliest record of human history.”
Jung: “The Archetypes and the Collective Unconscious”

The collective unconscious […] appears to consist of mythological images […]. In fact, the whole of mythology could be taken as a sort of projection of the collective unconscious.
We can see this clearly if we look at the heavenly constellations, whose originally chaotic form were organised through the projection of images […]. These influences are unconscious introspective perceptions of the activity of the collective unconscious.”

C. G. Jung (Collected Works, vol* Para 325)


We don’t have any spiritual links to what we are doing
But according to what one sees coming, this is a moment that’s not going to last very long. This is our great moment.

“Now, Augustus Caesar had the wit to transform the old agrarian myths into Roman myths, which celebrated the Roman state. But we haven’t had anybody who’s done that for our material yet, and so we don’t have any spiritual links to what we are doing. We have great freedom and that’s a blessing. What must happen is that some mythological instruction should be added to our freedom, so that the individual can find his own myth, his individual meaning in that freedom. […] The great thing about an open society is that it realises that part of the culture is economical/political but, at the same time, it allows the individual to find his own spiritual dynamic in his own way within that culture field. Society doesn’t work against him. But according to what one sees coming, this is a moment that’s not going to last very long. This is our great moment.

Do you mean that on a world basis, the god who is not revered will blow this culture to pieces? Sure! I mean these are the dynamics of the spirit and the spirit is what runs civilisations. It’s the human life. It’s the energy of life and when only a certain system of energy is given validity and is listened to, the rest is there to explode it. […] Europe has been knocked out in two wars of insanity. The Greeks did the same thing – the Peloponnesian War, Sparta against Athens. They knocked themselves out, and then came Alexander the Great.

And you see North America doing this too? There’s no doubt about it. Nobody knows what to say because nobody knows how to read a symbol.”

medieval city with modern buildings


A view of the medieval City of York

“[…] The separation of the visionaries from the people, and the separation of the individual from the folk destiny, is what happens in a late culture when the accent has become economic and political.
You can see this by just viewing cities and towns. Look at a medieval city. The highest building was always the cathedral.
[…] But when you come to seventeenth-century Europe, the principal building is the palace. The culture has moved to a political centre. Approach any one of our cities, San Francisco for instance, and what do you see? What are the highest buildings? They are economic buildings, either high apartment houses or office buildings. And that tells you what’s running the culture. This shift of accent is what’s known as the end of the culture.

Spengler in The Decline of the West saw this, that our culture is in the stage of early Rome. The beginning of the end is the utilitarian, politically organised state.”

Joseph Campbell talks about the culture loosing its sacredness. The Tantric Spiritual Master Osho (http://www.osho.com/) has also commented this alienation in a commentary on AIDS:

Osho on AIDS
“Man is becoming mature and aware that he has been cheated by the false promises of the priests and politicians. Society has been feeding him false hopes. The day he matures and realizes this, the desire to live falls apart. And the first thing wounded by it will be your sexuality. To me that is AIDS! AIDS has nothing to do either with homosexuality or heterosexuality; to me it means humanity is simply loosing its will to live. Whenever a person loses the will to live, his resistance falls immediately, because the body follows the mind. If the mind loses the will to live it will be reflected in the body by the dropping of resistance against sickness, against death. And modern man has finally come to a point where he finds that the life he is living is meaningless. He suddenly feels that he’s an existential orphan, and this feeling causes his will to live to disappear.”

Osho (1985), here from “The Millennium Book of Prophecy by J. Hogue, p 107

“The psychological death-rebirth process and its symbolic language can be applied to our condition. Even a cursory look at the world situation reveals that we have exteriorised in our present life all the essential aspects of BPM III that an individual involved in a transformative and evolutionary process must face internally. The third perinatal matrix has a number of important facets – the titanic, aggressive and sadomasochistic, sexual, demonic, messianic, scatological and pyrocathartic. […]
An individual undergoing the death-rebirth process would confront such themes internally as mandatory stages of the process of inner transformation. He or she would have to experience them and integrate them to reach “higher sanity” and a new level of consciousness. […] The critical turning point in the process of inner transformation is ego death and the conceptual destruction of the individual’s old world.”

Stanislav Grof: “Beyond the Brain” p. 427 - 428



The responsibility for the wars:
“We all share the responsibility for the wars, which are being fought at the moment, […]. We share the responsibility because the mental energy is moving through us, and because we spontaneously identifiy with it without purifying it at all. Those structures and tendencies that globally are in the mental flow, are constantly confirmed by us, we are feeding on them, repeating them, having them, etc. and we distillate something positive out of it which we identify with, and spread the negative away from ourselves. In this way we constantly are removing the negative from ourselves; and so it will emerge at some other place in the world. Thoughts are without space; they are not placed in a part of space, so when I refuse my responsibility for something, my pushing away, disowning, my shadow and my other negativity, will force the negativity to emerge some other place in the world, inevitably, and result in negative actions. Weaker individuals will be caught in our negativity and act accordingly. A bombardment of negative thoughts hit a certain place and release a war” [or a natural disaster].”

Jes Bertelsen “Dybdepsykologi 4”

*Jes Bertelsen (b. 1946) is a Danish philosopher and seer who has been working with spiritual development since the 1970s, and who started the Centre for Growth in Nørre Snede in 1982. He has written many books (in Danish) about depth psychology, the interpretation of dreams, meditation and spiritual development.

The coming crisis The truth has to be told: “As far as the world of man is concerned, I don’t think there is much chance of converting the masses against their own past. They are creations of the past, and their past will come to its crescendo in the coming crisis. The masses will be drowned in that crisis. I feel sad about it, but the truth has to be told.
Only a few people in the world will be able to survive after this global suicide, and those will be the people who are deeply rooted in consciousness: alert, aware, loving, and ready to disconnect themselves with the past completely and unconditionally, and ready to begin the New Man and the new humanity with the freshness of a child.
[…] Yes, all the predictions of the ancient seers, like Nostradamus, that the world is going to end by the end of this century, are true in a very different sense than it has been understood… The old [humanity] has to disappear to give place to a new Man with fresh values: with one Earth undivided into nations, with one humanity undivided by religion. […]”

Osho (1987) Here from J. Hogue: “The Millennium Book of Prophecy”

Kali Yuga Lethargy?
"A US government-scientist with whom I recently met, told me: “We [the scientific community] know Earth changes are coming. But the consensus is that we can do nothing without upsetting the current delicate balance of the global economy. If we were to announce what we know publicly - and admit that we don't know what to do, it would start a worldwide panic that could be worse than keeping quiet and letting events unfold. And besides, there's always the chance that we - and you - are wrong. Maybe nothing will happen after all".

How to deal with prophecies: Time and place
A huge difficulty in dealing with prophecies is that often the seer and certainly often the reader takes them literally, unaware of the laws governing the astral world where the visions is picked up from. Another difficulty is the seer’s understandable attempt to translate the astral timelessness into physical time

It is not strange the predictions have a ‘bad name’ – try and read these – If, as we believe is a distinct possibility, up to 90% come true, a lot of people will face hardship and death.

Mother Shipton was born in 1488 in a riverside cave at Knaresborough […] The child was named Ursula Sontheil and from the moment she came into the world it was clear she had strange gifts. She grew up and married a local carpenter but she was not destined to lead a normal life. Her power to see into the future became known across England. […]. She even forecast her own death in 1561.

Her famous predictions in exerpt:

“And now a word, in uncouth rhyme
Of what shall be in future time.
Beneath the water, men shall walk
Shall ride, shall sleep, shall even talk.
And in the air men shall be seen
In white and black and even green.
A great man then, shall come and go
For prophecy declares it so.
In water, iron, then shall float
As easy as a wooden boat
Gold shall be seen in stream and stone

For in those wondrous far off days
The women shall adopt a craze
To dress like men, and trousers wear
And to cut off their locks of hair.
They'll ride astride with brazen brow
As witches do on broomstick now.
There'll be a sign for all to see
Be sure that it will certain be.
Then love shall die and marriage cease
And nations wane as babes decrease.
And wives shall fondle cats and dogs
And men live much the same as hogs.
For those who live the century through
In fear and trembling this shall do.
Flee to the mountains and the dens
To bog and forest and wild fens.
For storms will rage and oceans roar
When Gabriel stands on sea and shore
And as he blows his wondrous horn
Old worlds die and new be born.
For seven days and seven nights
Man will watch this awesome sight.
The tides will rise beyond their ken
To bite away the shores and then
The mountains will begin to roar
And earthquakes split the plain to shore.
And flooding waters, rushing in
Will flood the lands with such a din
That mankind cowers in muddy fen
And snarls about his fellow men.
Yet greater sign there be to see
As man nears latter century.
Three sleeping mountains gather breath
And spew out mud, and ice and death.
And earthquakes swallow town and town,
In lands as yet to me unknown.”

Mother Shiptons verses are in their entirety here: http://www.dreamscape.com/morgana/helene.htm



As stated above, we believe roughly 90% of these prophecies to be true, but some believe that they are fabricated, see for example http://www.museumofhoaxes.com/shipton.html


Another famous example of a prophecy that is pointing to an exact time is Nostradamus’ prophecy for the millennium: “The year 1999, seven month, A great king of terror will descend from the skies To resuscitate the great king of Angolmois, Around this time Mars will reign for the good cause.”

Nostradamus 1565, Here from J. Hogue: “Nostradamus and the Millennium”.

As we all know, nothing happened of that magnitude. This either means the prediction was misunderstood, so it did happen but we have not yet understood, or it was wrong, nothing was meant to happen, or the timing was wrong. We believe in the latter, that grace and other unknown factors has delayed earth changes 5-7 years, so that what was predicted for the millennium shift – minus what has been transformed as a result of peoples spiritual growth in the time gained, now will begin to happen.

ahriman as sculpted by rudolph steiner

Ahriman Sculptured by Rudolph Steiner
Literal or symbolic understanding? Many people have looked for a Person that could be described as a great king of terror, many suggestions came up, But no one was evil enough to hold the title.

Maybe the “Great King” is what Rudolf Steiner calls Ahriman. Not a person, but a principle or a force. The ahrimanic element […] exerts its influence chiefly in the subconscious. In all the subconscious impulses in man’s nature, often subtle impulses, the ahrimanic forces mingle. “[…] The ahrimanic beings […] are not at pains to make man particularly spiritual, [as the Luciferic forces in a sense are] but rather to kill out in him the consciousness of his own spirituality. They endeavour to instil into him the conviction that he is nothing but a completely developed animal. Ahriman is in truth the teacher par excellence of materialistic Darwinism.
To kill, to darken in man the consciousness that he is an image of the Godhead - this is what the Ahrimanic beings are endeavouring by subtle scientific means of every kind […].”

What sort of psychology allows man to commit such atrocities?
http://whyfiles.org/140terror_psych/

The fact that a minority can get themselves to commit atrocious crimes like 9-11, is not a good excuse for us to loose perspective – Yes crimes must be investigated, perpetrators arrested and prosecuted – but still the amount of death from worldwide terrorism is dwarfed by the amount of death from any of the manmade calamities mentioned below.

“The vibrations of evil that mankind leaves in the ether upset the normal harmonious balance of the Earth. When the Earth becomes very heavy with disease and evil, these Etheric disturbances cause the world to give way to earthquakes, floods, and other natural disasters”.

starving african children

What sort of psychology allows man to commit such atrocities?

Hunger in Africa and Asia is predicted to worsen.
This is a preventable malady, caused by environmental issues, local conflict, previous but also very much present ignorance and greed, mainly in the richer countries.

HUNGER: DO YOU KNOW THE FACTS?
“It is estimated that one billion people in the world suffer from hunger and malnutrition. That's roughly 100 times as many as those who actually die from these causes each year.
About 24,000 people die every day from hunger or hunger-related causes. This is down from 35,000 ten years ago, and 41,000 twenty years ago. Three-fourths of the deaths are children under the age of five.
Famine and wars cause about 10% of hunger deaths, although these tend to be the ones you hear about most often. The majority of hunger deaths are caused by chronic malnutrition. Families facing extreme poverty are simply unable to get enough food to eat. In 1999, a year marked by good economic news, 31 million Americans were food insecure, meaning they were either hungry or unsure of where their next meal would come from. Of these Americans, 12 million were children. The Hunger Site began on June 1, 1999.”

AIDS: 2006: “it is now a pandemic, with an estimated 38.6 million people now living with the disease worldwide.[5] As of January 2006, the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) and the World Health Organization (WHO) estimate that AIDS has killed more than 25 million people since it was first recognized on June 5, 1981, making it one of the most destructive epidemics in recorded history. In 2005 alone, AIDS claimed an estimated 2.4–3.3 million lives, of which more than 570,000 were children.”

Earth changes
The concept ‘earth changes’ can be understood both as a transition between different ‘ages’ and as a result of human evilness. As we can see in the description of the yugas it is the same thing

As Enterprise Mission describes in this excellent article, that the whole solar system is undergoing massive changes. (see http://www.enterprisemission.com/_articles/05-142004_Interplanetary_Part…) . These enormous changes indicates either a cosmic origin of the changes, for example connected to the Yugas as described above, or – which from a certain angle is the same thing, it indicates that the human impact on the globe, is an impact, in fact on cosmos, or at least on our Solar System, as Edgar Cayce seems to indicate.

The article Cosmos and Us describes in further details our interconnectedness with cosmos. Our online meditation utilizes the deep interconnectedness we have with cosmos


Direct correlations with solar activity and changes to the climate on earth
“There is a scientific consensus that global temperatures have risen by 1C over the past 50 years — most of which has been linked to changes in atmospheric carbon dioxide.
But Dr Robert Baker, a geologist with the school of human and environmental studies, claimed evidence borne from a computer model of the sun's activity over the past 100,000 years shows direct correlations with solar activity and changes to the climate on earth.
"What is alarming is that all these switching events over the past 1500 years have occurred in as little as five years," said Dr Baker who is vice-chair of the International Geographical Unions' Commission on Modelling Geographical Systems.
"The critical question is whether the last major switching event in the 1500 year cycle was in about 1200AD — initiating the medieval warming event — or has yet to come.
"The model suggests that the global warming recorded in recent years is not just the result of 'greenhouse gas emissions'.
"Perhaps governments would take greenhouse gas emissions more seriously, if they knew how rapid the fluctuations in atmospheric-ocean warming and cooling cycles are."
Evidence of the climate change periods have been found by Dr Baker, Peter Flood and Bob Haworth in fossil records in Sydney and Brazil which show periods of dramatic ancient sea level rises. The time period for these changes and past ice ages have been calibrated with temperature changes in Antarctica. They correlate with the peaks in the sun's active cycle.”

We understand that magnetic fluctuations create volatility in people, reduced strength of the magnetic field creates greater exposure to cosmic rays, thus greater mortality

See current magnetic situation here: n3kl.org

There are at present a polarisation between those who see global warming as a result of greenhouse gasses and other man made calamities, and those who understand the same figures as a consequences of changes in the sun. This polarisation is puzzling A scientist must be open for facts and combine them with theories – but until a sufficient predicatbility is achieved, it remains a theory. The real reasons for global warming are probably a combination

Edgar Casey has this comment: “The more ye become aware of thy relationships to the universe and those influences that control same, the greater thy ability to help, to aid – the greater thy ability to rely upon the God-force within; but STILL greater thy RESPONSIBILITY to thy fellow men. For as ye do it unto the least, ye do it unto thy Maker, - even as to the sun which reflects those turmoils that arise within thee; even as the earthquake, even as the wars and hates, even as the influences in your life day by day. Then, what are sunspots? A natural consequence of that turmoil which the sons of God in the earth reflect upon same (the Sun).Thus they (sunspots) oft bring confusion to those who become aware of same. Let not your hearts become troubled; yet believe in God. Then just act like it- to others.”

Alarm at new climate warning
By Richard Black BBC environment correspondent Wednesday, 26 January, 2005
Global temperatures could rise by as much as eleven degrees Celsius, according to one of the largest climate prediction projects ever run. (The study used a program that ran on PCs around the world)
This figure is twice the level that previous studies have suggested.
The scientists behind the project, called climateprediction.net, say it shows there's no such thing as a safe level of carbon dioxide.
The results of the study, which used PCs around the world to produce data, are published in the journal Nature.
Climateprediction.net is run from Oxford University, and is a distributed computing project; rather than using a supercomputer to run climate models, people can download software to their own PCs, which run the programs during downtime.
More than 95,000 people have registered, from more than 150 countries; their PCs have between them run more than 60,000 simulations of future climate.
Each PC runs a slightly different computer simulation examining what happens to the global climate if levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere double from pre-industrial levels - which may happen by the middle of the century.
What vary most between the simulations are the precise nature of physical processes like the extent of convection within tropical clouds - a process which drives the transport of heat around the world.

Lowest rise.
So no two simulations will produce exactly the same results; overall, the project produces a picture of the possible range of outcomes given the present state of scientific knowledge.
The lowest rise which climateprediction.net finds possible is two degrees Celsius, ranging up to 11 degrees.
The timescale would depend on how quickly the doubling of CO2 was reached, but large rises would be on a scale of a century at least from now.
"I think these results suggest that our need to do something about climate change is perhaps even more urgent," the climateprediction.net chief scientist David Stainforth told BBC News.
"However, with our current state of knowledge, we can't yet define a safe level in the atmosphere."
On Monday, the International Climate Change Taskforce, co-chaired by the British MP Stephen Byers, claimed it had shown that a carbon dioxide concentration of over 400 ppm (parts per million) would be 'dangerous'.
The current concentration is around 378 ppm, rising at roughly 2ppm per year.
Dangerous warming
Next week the UK Meteorological Office hosts an international conference, Stabilisation 2005, announced by Tony Blair late last year.
Its aim is to discuss what the term "dangerous" global warming really means, and to look at ways to stabilise greenhouse gas levels.
Myles Allen, the principal investigator of climateprediction.net, said the focus on stabilisation might not be appropriate.
"Stabilisation as an exclusive target may not be adequate," he told BBC News.
"Stephen Byers claims to know that 400 ppm is the maximum 'safe' level; what we show is that it may be impossible to pin down a safe level, and therefore we should not focus exclusively on stabilisation."
Distributed computing has been used before, notably by the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence or Seti, where several million people have downloaded software enabling them to analyse data from observations of distant galaxies for signs of alien life.
The scientists behind climateprediction.net http://www.climateprediction.net/index.php believe their project, because it is distributed to individual PCs, can help inform people about climate change - and that, in turn could bring political change.
"It's very difficult to get politicians to collaborate, not only across the globe but also over sustained lengths of time," Bob Spicer from the Earth Sciences Department at the Open University, told BBC News.
"The people who can hold politicians to account are the public; and with this project we are bringing cutting-edge science to the stakeholders, the public."

Rising global temperatures will condemn millions to hunger this century

“Scientists say rising global temperatures will condemn millions to hunger this century.
In a United Nations report, they say agricultural production will decline in Asia and Africa, while Australia and New Zealand will become short of water.
Europe will face a higher flooding risk, and the eastern seaboard of the US may expect more storm surges and coastal erosion.
And the harder climate change bites, the likelier it is that profound and possibly irreversible changes will occur.
The scientists are members of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), a UN body bringing together many of the world's leading climatologists.
Last month the IPCC published a report on the science of climate change, saying the world was warming faster than previously predicted, and there was increasingly strong evidence for humanity's influence on the climate.”

  1. Emerging infectious diseases.
  2. The loss of genetic and functional group species biodiversity.
  3. Among animals, and birds as a particular example, a growing dominance of "generalists" that have wide-ranging diets (such as crows, Canada geese, and gulls) over "specialists" (like plovers) whose localized niches are disappearing.
  4. A pronounced decline in one type of specialist—the pollinators (such as bees, birds, bats, butterflies, and beetles)—whose activities are indispensable for the preservation of flowering plants, including crops.
  5. Along coastlines, the proliferation of harmful algal blooms.

Global warming may cause wide prevalence of deadly infectious diseases, such as malaria and dengue fever, which potentially threaten half of the world's population.
Professor Ding Yihui, an expert from the China Meteorological Administration, told the conference that it has been agreed by scientists across the world that temperatures in the northern hemisphere in the last century witnessed the highest growth in the past 1,000 years. The climate changes in the latest 50 years were mainly attributed to human activities, he said. Diseases like malaria, dengue fever, black fever and snail fever are sensitive to climate changes, Ding said, pointing out that incidences of pestiferous malaria and dengue fever, which can both be disseminated by insects, may explode, endangering half of the world's population. Statistics issued by the World Health Organization suggest that the incidence of malaria indicated an annual upswing last year, when it killed one million people, over 700,000 of whom were children.

The UN's World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) says the 10 years 1996-2005, with the exception of 1996, are the warmest on record with 1998 the most sweltering.

NASA, by contrast, reckons that 2005 was hottest ahead of 1998. […]"The overall picture of a warming planet with a 'noisy' trend is quite consistent," he said.

Edgar Cayce’s predictions: When Edgar Cayce, the sleeping prophet, was asked exactly when the Earth Changes would begin, and on what day the lord will reveal his presence to the world at large, he quoted Christ, who, when asked a similar question by his disciples 2000 years ago, give the following answer: “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but the Father only”.
Edgar Cayce also explained that the fulfilment of prophecy, including its manner and timing was dependent on a number of factors - one of those factor being “the thought and intent” of Enlightened Beings -both human and angelic or celestial - whose influence could help to forestall and or modify the prophecy’s fulfilment.”


“What great change or the beginning of what change, If any, is to take place in the earth in the year 2000 - 2001 AD?
“When there is a shifting of the poles. Or a new cycle begins” “As to the changes physical again: The earth will be broken up in the western part of America. The greater portion of Japan must go into the sea. The upper portion of Europe will be changed as in the twinkling of an eye. Land will appear off the east coast of America. There will be the upheavals in the Arctic and in the Antarctic that will make for the eruption of volcanoes in the Torrid areas, and there will be the shifting of the poles - so that where there have been those of a frigid or semi - tropical will become more the tropical, and moss and fern will grow.”

Edgar Cayce, 1934


Earth Changes. “No event or prophecy is final. Prophecies are given as probabilities. Even in this eleventh hour time frame, consciousness can alter an event, modify the changes in an area, or at the very least, help prepare for what is to come”

Future maps
Question :“DEAR GORDON MICHAEL SCALLION: In your predictions published in your newsletters going back to 1994 you indicate that a final warning sign for massive Earth changes in the U.S. would be a major quake in the Indian Ocean near Colombo, Sri Lanka. Is the 9.0 quake in the Indian Ocean that occurred on Dec. 26, the event you predicted?
Answer: DEAR KEVIN: Before I begin let me say how terribly saddened we are by the horrific loss of life and the shocking devastation that has occurred as a result of the tsunamis that have inundated the areas affected by the 9.0 Indian Ocean quake.
If you look at my "Future Map of the World", you will notice that many of the places destroyed by the devastating tsunamis are shown as coastal areas that have disappeared. In some cases whole islands have been lost. […]
As to the Indian Ocean quake, indications are that this is the first of a series of early warning signs for future changes. The next sign to watch for is “significant” activity in Mexico, and in the Pacific Northwest, specifically Mount Rainer. By “significant” I mean an eruption. Mount Saint Helens is already active and while this was not a specific early warning sign that I had predicted, Mount Saint Helens and Mount Rainier are all part of the same Cascades range and are subject to the same magma flows and pressures.
As I noted in the January/February issue of “Intuitive Flash,” 2005 resumes Earth changes especially near the equator, Ring of Fire and the West Coast of America. However, the Indian Ocean quake and the resulting tsunamis indicate that they have started 5 days earlier than I predicted.
In my next update, I will share some insights on how to be better prepared for future changes.”

The window for greater Earth Changes
"In my FUTURE MAPS series, I stated that the window for greater Earth Changes would occur between 1998 and 2012. I had hoped that the more serious events would occur later, giving the mass consciousness of the world more time to prepare, and perhaps even allowing us to help lessen the magnitude of these events. I am now convinced that unless there is a drastic change in global consciousness, major events will occur prior to 2001.”

From http://www.enterprisemission.com/hyperquake.htm
The Tsunami from the Sumatra Earthquake from 26/12 2004
According to an article in Enterprise Mission

As of 27/1 2005 was the official death toll 280.000

Two researchers, Rao and Venkatanathan, were able to reasonable accurately predict time and geographic location of the Sumatra Earthquake, using astronomical data about the larger planets in our solar system, leading to the conclusion, that distance and angular relation etc of the solar system, is in fact part of what triggers earth quakes, once again showing how interlinked we are with cosmos.

Cosmic energies are drawn into the Earth and into human consciousness

“As the tilt of Earth’s axis allows its North magnetic pole to align with a particular pole star constellation of the heavens, cosmic energies are drawn from that region into the Earth and into human consciousness through our crown chakra (equivalent to the Earth’s magnetic North), these energies are drawn into our spinal energy channel (the yogi’s susumna) to stimulate the quality of our awareness via our chakra system”.

Gordon Michael Scallion: Great Earth Changes will happen unless there is a drastic change in global consciousness


“The vibrations of evil that mankind leaves in the ether upset the normal harmonious balance of the Earth. When the Earth becomes very heavy with disease and evil, these Etheric disturbances cause the world to give way to earthquakes, floods, and other natural disasters”.

What needs to change: The difference in each of us Between knowing some beautiful words And living according to them

In describing the nature of true compassion, the Enlightened Indian woman Amma has said "Compassion is not something one person has for another, but rather something that arises when one begins to see all others as ones own self".
As real compassion develops within, the sense of 'other' begins to lessen. When we cut our own finger, the first impulse we have is to rush to heal it, because we see the finger as belonging to us, as part of ourselves. Likewise, when we see others suffering, our first impulse should be to rush to comfort and help them, seeing them as belonging to us, as part of ourselves.
In response to this catastrophe [The Sumatra earthquake and Tsunami 26/12 2004], all along, it has been Amma herself who has been directing the relief efforts.

Good wishes are not enough We have to assume responsibility.”
“I think that we can say, that, because of the lessons we have begun to learn, the next century will be friendlier, more harmonious, and less harmful. Compassion, the seed of peace, will be able to flourish. I am very hopeful. At the same time, I believe that every individual has a responsibility to help guide our global family in the right direction. Good wishes are not enough; we have to assume responsibility.”

And the Need for Universal Responsibility”.1992
