Jacob-Becoming-Israel and the Divine Syzygy: An Inner Manifestation

March 2, 2016

One of the most profound spiritual experiences I have had took place on Monday, February 29, 2016 as I drove from Athens, Ohio to Topeka, Kansas to see my daughter Tori. As I was driving on I-70 in eastern Indiana I was moved to speak with Samuel, my High Self. Samuel instructed me to begin a conversation with Jacob, my Male Self, so I did.

I don’t remember much now from the early parts of this communication, but at a crucial moment my Female Self, Esther, began speaking. The surprising thing was that she was speaking in English, which she almost never does. She usually uses her ancient language that I speak so frequently now. Esther began addressing Jacob by announcing that the time had come for him to accept his true inner nature, which meant accepting his transformation from Jacob to Israel. She then began chanting in a wonderful sing-song way, “You are Israel—accept your true nature! You are Israel—accept your true nature!”

Initially Jacob was both flattered and a little disturbed to be called on for such a transformation. He has known for some time now that his moment was coming soon, but he had never imagined that it would take this form of accepting a new identity, and especially not the identity of Israel. Given his strong condemnation of the colonizing behaviors of the state of Israel and the earlier American manifestations of such Biblical imperialism, not to mention the brutal relations between the early nation and its neighbors in the Bible,  Jacob was not predisposed to take on such an identity.

But the remarkable thing was how beautiful the new identity felt, not just to Jacob but to all of my inner selves and to me as a total personality. Jacob, in utter ecstasy, began chanting, “I am Israel! I am a child of God! O am Israel! I am a child of God!” This ecstatic acceptance of this newly-revealed identity filled my entire being with warm light. I believe that I was actually glowing as I soared across the highway of Indiana, deeper into the magical plains of the Mississippi Valley.

Esther and Israel joined together in a new ecstatic union, which increased the ecstatic glowing and the musical round of heavenly song. I could hear angels singing all around me as I was filled with pure joy.

In response to my lingering questions about the brutal nature of the nation of Israel in ancient and in modern days, I was told that the true meaning of the Biblical Israel’s transformation from Jacob had been the marriage between humanity and the Planetary Being. The “Land of Israel” did not refer simply to the place commonly referred to as the Holy Land but to the planet as a whole. Israel was being instructed in his role as avatar for humanity in this newfound sense of being at home, this new atonement between humankind and the Earth. This was never meant as a covenant between a single tribe on a single plot of land but as a unification of the human with Gaia. My recognition of this human-planetary unity filled me with even more ecstatic energy.

I was then urged to remember the moment in the movie version of The Da Vinci Code when the main character revealed the meaning behind the two triangles that make up the Star of David, the downward-pointing triangle representing the female womb and the upward-pointing one representing the male phallus, with the unity of the two signifying the divine unity of the Female and Male Principles. My new experience of the unity of Esther and Israel represents just such a cosmic unity of male and female within myself, a unity that promises great changes in my social being. In fact, this newfound unity within myself as symbolized by the united triangles of the Star of David revealed yet another transformative element for me: the “Star of David,” a universal symbol that pre-existed its association with the Jews of Israel for thousands of years, was originally known as the Star of Gabriel as well as many other names. This, then, is my star, my sacred image that is to guide my mediations for some time to come.

The oddest part of all of this is how much sense it all makes and how healed and transformed I feel as a result. I am truly blessed to receive this new understanding and to be grounded in this unity of humanity and Gaia as a divine syzygy.

The Matakin Sky Spirits and the Spindle of Heaven

harmony_of_spheresMay 8, 2015

I’m sitting in the Powhatan Motel in Pocahontas, Illinois (really) feeling through the impulse to begin recording some of the information regarding this spot that I have been receiving over the past few years. To cut to the chase, I need to start fleshing out a picture of a class of beings who have introduced themselves to me as the Matakin. The Matakin are devas of the sky sphere, the atmosphere—the sphere of Atmos, Atman. And the primary element in the message they send through me is the existence of what they call the Spindle of Heaven.

I should begin with the feeling of the place and the utter ecstasy that it instills in me. I first noticed this effect about two years ago as my wife Anna and I were driving my daughter Tori back to her mother’s house in Kansas from our house in Ohio. For almost twenty years now I have driven this route along I-70 between these two states, and each time I drive through the Pocahontas area I am struck by the utter beauty of this glacial plane, of this amazing—stunning—plane of flat earth. And as I swoop into the perceived flatness of the earth’s sphere, my attention is lifted up into the atmosphere. The sky is so immense, so palpable, so inviting—and now, I realize, so alive. Alive with Sky Spirits.

And so these Sky Spirits began speaking to me—or through me—a little over a year ago, much of which I have recorded in voice memos but have yet to transcribe into written text. The element of their message that they wish for me to pass on at this moment is that of what they call the Spindle of Heaven.

Ptolemaicsystem-smallThe Spindle of Heaven is an energetic formation at least a mile high. (I do not yet know its precise dimensions, if such spatial parameters are even appropriate for trying to account for its magnificence.) The Spindle is a vortex that rises straight up from the earth into the heavens at a point roughly five miles due north of the village of Pocahontas at exit 36 on I-70. While its primary structure is what one would expect of a vortex, a kind of tornado-like funnel of energy, it also contains winding arms or ropes of energy that spin on a downward angle along its axis. These energetic arms are like tentacles that contain pods of some sort that serve as elevator cars, in a sense, for various beings that ride up and down the spindle as they arrive to this point on the globe from origins in space and beyond this spatial universe. (I do not know why such beings would need such pod-like conveyances. I have a sense that they serve as decompression chambers—or perhaps compression chambers would be more appropriate—as these various extra-planetary beings arrive to this planet.) The actual spot where the Spindle rises up from or drops down to the earth is remarkably calm energetically, much like the eye of a hurricane.

Key to its function is its continental location: Pocahontas, Illinois is roughly at the center point of the North American continent between the Great Lakes and the Gulf of Mexico on the North-South axis and between the Atlantic ocean and the Continental Divide of the Rocky Mountains on the East-West axis. In terms of terrain, it is located at the point where the glaciated plains of the Midwestern region meet the foothills of the Ozarks and the hills of the Ohio Valley. In terms of tectonic structure, the Spindle is on the primary rim of the New Madrid Fault system. In terms of water systems, it is very close to the junctions of the Ohio and Missouri Rivers as they conjoin the Mississippi River. And in terms of subterranean structures, it sits at the eastern edge of a massive network of underground caverns, tunnels (physical and etheric), and subterranean waterways that spread underneath Missouri and Arkansas out into Kansas and Oklahoma.

It is not coincidental that the Cahokia Mounds just to the east of St. Louis are located only thirty miles southwest of the Spindle, for that mound complex served for millennia as a ceremonial reception center for terrestrial and extra-terrestrial conventions, so to speak.

powhatanI am told that the Spindle was and perhaps still is known to various indigenous peoples of this entire continental range, but I have not yet been told which tribes specifically have had interactions with and still might have knowledge of the Spindle. I do know that human interaction with it has taken place far into the past beyond the presumed origins of the current peoples of this region.

In fact, one reason I am being asked to present this information at this moment is to begin the process of reaching out to those who might have knowledge of and experience with the Spindle. The time has arrived for a reconvening of the various peoples and entities that are involved in the recalibration of the Spindle for what will be momentous times in the near future.

There is more information to come.

The Triple Spiral of the Portals

October 4, 2013

I will attempt to reconstruct what I have learned in the past few days from my meditations on the hill above our house. There is a lot of information that remains fuzzy at the present moment, but a general structure of significance seems to be falling into place.

Triple Spiral

During much of August and September Anna and I were led to focus most of our attention here on the First Portal, which was revealed to involve a heavenly or celestial vortex. (For the sake of coherence, I will repeat some of the information I have relayed in previous accounts.) I had many direct and indirect encounters with the Archangel Gabriel here, as well as with Michael and other unidentified angelic powers. The general message seems to have been that we should continually anchor ourselves in this Angelic Force, not only for the gifts we would receive from such beings but perhaps even moreso because this would impel us to acknowledge and claim our own Angelic Nature. One aspect of this message is that humans are multidimensional, complex beings made up of many elements, including the Angelic. We are Terrestrial Angels.

The Second Portal was shown to involve the energies of an Earthly Vortex—that is, a vortex arising from subterranean sources. This portal is overseen by Water Fairies and represents a point of contact or entry into the subterranean water systems throughout the planet. I have been led through various meditations and exercises for connecting to and with these water forces. Given the fact that Fairies in general have a hard time dealing with the intensity of Human Energies, the Elves mediate between us and the Fairies in order to moderate the energy flow from us humans to the Fairies, just as the Elves mediate between Humans and Angels in order to lesson the intensity of Angelic Energies that Humans come into contact with.

The Third Portal, which I have barely been led to explore as yet, represents what I can only at this point call Alternative Realities. This seems to refer to dimensional planes that I cannot even imagine at the moment, planes that go beyond our usual spatial coordinates of Heaven (Causal), Earth (Physical), and the Underworld (Etheric). At the moment I can only imagine dimensional realms existing as alternative universes, realms of experience that we can slip into and out of, but not without preparation if we wish to avoid serious trauma.

Now to the realizations of the past three days: We were drawn to meditate on the hilltop in the meadow which we have mown and where we sit to enjoy the beauty of our surrounding landscape and the change of seasons. I was told ahead of time that this spot was not chosen randomly by us but has special energetic significance in relation to the rest of the property. After getting attuned through some Kundalini Yoga chants and our own Kyy Breath Centering Meditation, I was told to tap into the energies of the First Portal. As I was sitting facing north, this meant that the First Portal was off behind us to the left, or to the southwest of the hilltop. As I did so, I immediately felt the presence of Gabriel and was led through some connecting exercises to connect with my own Angelic Energies. This led to familiar and still amazing experiences as the energies flowed through my various bodies.

Next I was led to connect to the Fairies and Elves at the Second Portal, who took me through now familiar exercises in which I engaged with the forces of the entities themselves and then to the Water Elementals I again flowed through the subterranean water systems of the planet.

Then I was asked to open myself up to the energies of the Third Portal, which I hadn’t yet been invited to do. While the energies of the Angelic Portal tend to be very electric, as though currents of energy flow through me and extend my being into a larger energetic circuit, and the energies of the Second Portal feel, not surprisingly, more liquid and bubbling, the energies of the Third Portal felt much more substantial in the sense of solid and dense. Yet the feeling of these energies was very comforting and warming. If you could say that the First Portal energies give rise to a flying sensation and those of the Second Portal give rise to a swimming sensation, the Third Portal energies felt more like a warm, comfortable night in bed under wonderful blankets and on luscious pillows. I cannot think of any time I have experienced this particular quality of energy before.

The Triple Spiral

As amazing and welcome as this new Third Portal experience was, I had not yet experienced the greatest rush of flows yet to come. This happened when I suddenly began to notice that I could feel the energies of all three portals flowing through me (and me through them) simultaneously. I asked my Guide whether this were true, and the answer was that this was the most important experience for me to go through and ultimately to consider—the relationship between the Three Portals with us at the Center Point of perspective and signification. I was invited to bathe in this new combined flow, and as I did the image of the Celtic Triple Spiral suddenly appeared before my consciousness. I could at that moment see each portal simultaneously rotating in a counter-clockwise circle. What I mean by “simultaneous” is that even though each portal lay quite a distance from me in physical space and each in its own planetary location, I could literally see each portal spiral as if I were hovering over each simultaneously, seeing three different geo-spatial coordinates at once as they lay stacked on top of one another.

At the same time, nevertheless, I was seeing the very spot where Anna and I were sitting—the hilltop above the Second Portal and below the First (to the left) and Third (to the right up on the highest ridge top). And I realized that this spot was the point of convergence of the energies of each of the three portals. Just as I was seeing myself hovering above each portal, watching each spin in equal rhythm with the others, I could also see the spot where I was sitting serving as the conduit for the flows of all three portals. I said to my Guide, “This is the significance of the Celtic Spiral!” (which we had seen throughout Ireland during our travels in June), and my Guide said, “Yes!” I then heard the following statement: “The Image, the Word, the Object, the Gesture—all are portals, points of convergence where multiple realities intersect. The key is to recognize the invitation to travel these overlapping vectors, to see these points of convergence glowing in their infinite possibilities.”

This statement proves especially significant for me as I have been spending the past few weeks intensely reading the Sufi philosophers, especially Ibn ‘Arabi and Suhrawardi, and commentary on them by Henry Corbin. A key element of their thinking and spiritual experience for me is the way in which they approach the Image or the Figure—every Image and Figure!—as an archetype for the relationship between the Human Angel (humans in their angelic aspect) and the Holy Spirit as represented by (figured by) the Angel Gabriel. To have this energetic and imagistic revelation by means of the Angel-Elf-Fairy influence of my portal experiences was mind blowing! This was exactly the kind of unification of my spirit visions and my intellectual exercises that I had been seeking. And it all came via the image of the Celtic Triple Spiral which I had been meditating on for months in conjunction with the Kachina spiral images of the U.S. Southwest.

In short, things feel as though they are quickly and massively coalescing for me on a multitude of levels. Wow!

Turehu Speaks on the Dimensional Nature of Portals

By Gabriel Hartley, October 22-23, 2012

[NOTE: the following message is from Turehu, a fairy spirit guide of mine, and channeled by me. The island referred to is off the southwestern coast of Finland.]

One of the things we fairies want you to focus on is the structure of the light that shines on the island. Notice that the glow is not simply a homogeneous light mass but is actually made up of light filaments, a mesh of light strands or fibers.

gridview.thThese fibers converge on an infinite number of knots, and each knot serves as a unidimensional portal. If you imagine dropping down from three to two dimensions by subtracting depth, now imagine dropping down from two (height and width) to one—a simple line connecting two or more points. While these knot points occupy a particular geographical point on the surface of the planet with a given latitude and longitude, they are in reality unidimensional points with infinite connectivity with one another. This is another instance of one point being all points at once.

AmfidromieenThis is how the portal structure operates. When you travel from what appears to be one point to another, you are in fact occupying a single point that opens out onto an infinite number of points on the three-dimensional grid of the planet’s surface. It’s like being in a room and each time you open the door you can exit into a different location. Or it’s like the nature of universal cellular structure in which each cell is made up of identical information yet performs its own specific function. Just as we can speak of cellular intelligence, we can also speak of light intelligence. This web or mesh of light is a living, intelligent structure made up of infinite numbers of elemental beings who perform the transiting function for the traveler simply by opening out onto differing planetary or interplanetary spaces.

Once you allow yourself to imagine and actually occupy such points of light, you have allowed yourself to enter into the etheric structure that the fairy world occupies. It is this unidimensional opening out from a single point onto the three-dimensional grid of the planet, for example, that allows for portal transit. This transitionality or transitivity or transpositionality is the basic elemental structure of portals. As such, the physical conceptions and experiences of space and time necessary for three-dimensional travel are no longer operative when speaking of portal transitions.

The mental shift involved in coming to such a conception is important not simply for understanding the nature of the object at hand—portal travel—but functions as well as a mind exercise that prepares a human being for the kind of mental elasticity necessary for perceiving the nature of etheric relationality. This is a training exercise of sorts for any human who takes etheric existence seriously. Typical three-dimensional concepts simply do not work.

earth_grid_ley_linesIt is important to relate this notion to the current interest among humans in multimensionality. We are not at all denying the importance, both practically and conceptually, of learning to extend human mental structures into multidimensional experiences. But we do wish to point out that etheric experience involves exactly the opposite operation—that of moving from three dimensions to one single dimension that then opens out onto three dimensionality. It is exactly this dimensional reduction that allowed for the kind of interworld travel that C. S. Lewis depicts in his Chronicles of Narnia books—despite the transition space and time that would be necessary for passing through the coats in a wardrobe into another world (which is a representational concession to the demands of those stuck in three-dimensional thought).

So in returning to the topic of etheric light structure, when you experience such light in meditation, allow yourself to focus on the light filaments and the knot structures that combine these filaments. For it is at these knots that interdimensional travel through unidimensional transposition can then take place.
