Contrary to the common belief that the Earth is simply a dense planet whose only function is as a resource for its inhabitants, our planet is in fact a breathing, living organism. When we think of the Earth holistically, as one living entity of its own, instead of the sum of its parts, it takes on a new meaning. Our planet functions as a single organism that maintains conditions necessary for its survival.

Throughout history, the concept of Mother Earth has been a part of human culture in one form or another. Everybody has heard of Mother Earth, but have you ever stopped to think who (or what) Mother Earth is?

*

What is Gaia?
The Gaia hypothesis states that life creates conditions on Earth to suit itself; that Life created the planet Earth, not the other way around.

James Lovelock published in a book in 1979 Gaia: A New Look at Life on Earth, which provided many useful lessons about the interaction of physical, chemical, geological, and biological processes on Earth. Lovelock defined Gaia as “… a complex entity involving the Earth’s biosphere, atmosphere, oceans, and soil; the totality constituting a feedback or cybernetic system which seeks an optimal physical and chemical environment for life on this planet”.

Through Gaia, the Earth sustains a kind of homeostasis, the maintenance of relatively constant conditions.

The truly startling component of the Gaia hypothesis is the idea that the Earth is a single living entity. This idea is certainly not new. James Hutton (1726-1797), the father of geology, once described the Earth as a kind of superorganism. And right before Lovelock, Lewis Thomas, a medical doctor and skilled writer, penned these words in his famous collection of essays, “The Lives of a Cell”:

“Viewed from the distance of the moon, the astonishing thing about the earth, catching the breath, is that it is alive. The photographs show the dry, pounded surface of the moon in the foreground, dry as an old bone. Aloft, floating free beneath the moist, gleaming, membrane of bright blue sky, is the rising earth, the only exuberant thing in this part of the cosmos. If you could look long enough, you would see the swirling of the great drifts of white cloud, covering and uncovering the half-hidden masses of land. If you had been looking for a very long, geologic time, you could have seen the continents themselves in motion, drifting apart on their crustal plates, held afloat by the fire beneath. It has the organized, self-contained look of a live creature, full of information, marvelously skilled in handling the sun.”

John Nelson illustrated the “Breathing Earth”, with animated GIFs he designed to visualize what a year’s worth of Earth’s seasonal transformations look like from outer space. Nelson – a data visualizer – stitched together from NASA’s website 12 cloud-free satellite photographs taken each month over the course of a year. Once the images were put together in a sequence, the mesmerizing animations showed what Nelson describes as “the annual pulse of vegetation and land ice” of Gaia.

As the climate changes, the planet comes alive. Earth appears to breathe when ice cover grows and melts — in and out, in and out.

White frost radiates out from the top of the globe and creeps south in all directions. It travels through Siberia, Canada, and northern Europe, heading towards the equator located around the circle’s edge, but ends before the top of Africa. The Mediterranean Sea is the visible body of water on the top left hand side, and the Great Lakes make up a small network of dark blue shapes on the land mass to the right.

The Gaia Hypothesis
The Earth acts as a single system – it is a coherent, self-regulated, assemblage of physical, chemical, geological, and biological forces that interact to maintain a unified whole balanced between the input of energy from the sun and the thermal sink of energy into space.

In its most basic configuration, the Earth acts to regulate flows of energy and recycling of materials. The input of energy from the sun occurs at a constant rate and for all practical purposes is unlimited. This energy is captured by the Earth as heat or photosynthetic processes, and returned to space as long-wave radiation. On the other hand, the mass of the Earth, its material possessions, are limited (except for the occasional input of mass provided as meteors strike the planet). Thus, while energy flows through the Earth (sun to Earth to space), matter cycles within the Earth.

The idea of the Earth acting as a single system as put forth in the Gaia hypothesis has stimulated a new awareness of the connectedness of all things on our planet and the impact that man has on global processes. No longer can we think of separate components or parts of the Earth as distinct. No longer can we think of man’s actions in one part of the planet as independent. Everything that happens on the planet – the deforestation/reforestation of trees, the increase/decrease of emissions of carbon dioxide, the removal or planting of croplands – all have an affect on our planet.

The most difficult part of this idea is how to qualify these effects, i.e. to determine whether these effects are positive or negative. If the Earth is indeed self-regulating, then it will adjust to the impacts of man. However, as we will see, these adjustments may act to exclude man, much as the introduction of oxygen into the atmosphere by photosynthetic bacteria acted to exclude anaerobic bacteria. This is the crux of the Gaia hypothesis.

One of the early predictions of this hypothesis was that there should be a sulfur compound made by organisms in the oceans that was stable enough against oxidation in water to allow its transfer to the air. Either the sulfur compound itself, or its atmospheric oxidation product, would have to return sulfur from the sea to the land surfaces. The most likely candidate for this role was deemed to be dimethyl sulfide.

Published work done at the University of Maryland by first author Harry Oduro, together with UMD geochemist James Farquhar and marine biologist Kathryn Van Alstyne of Western Washington University, provides a tool for tracing and measuring the movement of sulfur through ocean organisms, the atmosphere and the land in ways that may help prove or disprove the controversial Gaia theory. Their study appears in this week’s Online Early Edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).

The Story of Water by Alick Bartholomew, is another unique publication in that it reflects the author’s deep knowledge of the principles of whole geophysical systems, which helps us understand the Earth as an integrated Gaia system that sustains us. The book begins by describing our usual view of water based on Western science and then deftly moves on to the frontier sciences that embrace water as the source of life in terms of biological systems, quantum energy fields, etheric fields, spirals, vortices, and as a medium for communications and memory. An understanding of these principles can lead to strategies for treating our water in ways that guarantee a sustainable future for humankind.

*

How Does Gaia Work?
The homeostasis regulated by the Earth is much like the internal maintenance of our own bodies; processes within our body insure a constant temperature, blood pH, electrochemical balance, etc. The inner workings of Gaia, therefore, can be viewed as a study of the physiology of the Earth, where the oceans and rivers are the Earth’s blood, the atmosphere is the Earth’s lungs, the land is the Earth’s bones, and the living organisms are the Earth’s senses. Lovelock calls this the science of geophysiology – the physiology of the Earth (or any other planet).

To understand how the Earth is living, let’s take a look at what defines life. Physicists define life as a system of locally reduced entropy (life is the battle against entropy). Molecular biologists view life as replicating strands of DNA that compete for survival and evolve to optimize their survival in changing surroundings. Physiologists might view life as a biochemical system that us able to use energy from external sources to grow and reproduce. According to Lovelock, the geophysiologist sees life as a system open to the flux of matter and energy but that maintains an internal steady-state.

Beyond the scientific importance of what we have discussed here, we might do well to consider some of the more poetical thoughts of the originator of the theory:

“If Gaia exists, the relationship between her and man, a dominant animal species in the complex living system, and the possibly shifting balance of power between them, are questions of obvious importance… The Gaia hypothesis is for those who like to walk or simply stand and stare, to wonder about the Earth and the life it bears, and to speculate about the consequences of our own presence here. It is an alternative to that pessimistic view which sees nature as a primitive force to be subdued and conquered. It is also an alternative to that equally depressing picture of our planet as a demented spaceship, forever traveling, driverless and purposeless, around an inner circle of the sun.”

The Gaia hypothesis states that life creates conditions on Earth to suit itself; that Life created the planet Earth, not the other way around. As we explore the solar system and galaxies beyond, it may one day be possible to design an experiment to test whether life indeed manipulates planetary processes for its own purposes or whether life is just an evolutionary processes that occurs in response to changes in the non-living world.

Greetings, Lightworkers and Eagles! Ashtar back with you once again.  

Energies are changing, are they not? I believe most of you have noticed. For your next meditation we are asking Lightworkers, Starseeds, All Ground Crew, and Eagles to continue with part of last week’s assignment but to also add some new grids to your focus. First do your protocal: Ground, Center, and Intend for your energies to join those in Project: Eagle Triad

1)
For your first five minutes, you are asked to again send the Energy of Love to the core of your planet to help Balance the slight wobble she’s been in.

2)
For the next five minutes, you are asked to send this same Energy to the mass-consciousness grid of Earth. Do not connect to this grid, simply send to.

3)
Then, for the final five minutes, you are asked to send, through your intent, the Energy, or Attribute, of Love known as Divine Cooperation into our Lightworker Grid. This Grid needs to function as a ‘whole’ in order to be the Beacon of Light to the rest of your world. Egos must be put aside in favor of coming together as the One that you are. You are to be the ‘Light Unto the World’, not many little Lights shining only into your own little corner.

Be diligent, my friends, for you are almost there!  I am Ashtar, ever close to you.

It is I, Sanat Kumara,

who comes forth to speak with you regarding our Beloved Mother Earth.

Most of you know me as the Planetary Logos, the one who embodied this planet,

filling every cell of her being, lighting and paving the way for some of the

most historic events in her history.

I come forth at this time to ask each of you to become, as it were, a Planetary Logos…

filling your Heart Center with the Love for our Mother.

She is going through a most difficult time right now,

and is in need of much Love and Care.

For those of you of the female gender who have been on the threshold of birth,

you are well aware of what I speak.

Mother Earth is now in the throes of labor… and a difficult labor it is.

She is hurting and she needs your Love.

The time for the “big push” is at hand.

Long has she strived to hold back on this birth,

giving everyone ample opportunity to awaken to their own Divinity,

to their Oneness with her.

The time has now come when the pangs of birth are so strong

that she can hold off no longer.

Earth changes are impending, however this is part of her birthing process.

It must be in order for her to move into her Higher state of Being.

She has loved you, cared for you, provided for you, nourished you,

and now she must move on… on to her rightful Ascended State.

And she holds open the opportunity for all humanity to join her on this journey.

All she asks is for you to join with her in Light…in Love… in Oneness.

Accompany her into the Higher Realms by way of your own Ascension.

The choice, of course, is yours.

You may go…or you may stay.

She has made her choice, however, and is now ready to Ascend.

Be not afraid of the coming “push”, for all is as it should be.

Send her your Love, hold her in your Heart,

embody her to help her through this difficult time.

She has held back as long as she can,

but now must burst forth from her chrysalis as does the butterfly as it takes to the air.

I ask all of you to join me in helping with this birth.

Long have I held the Light in every cell of her body,

and now I ask you to continue to do the same.

While holding this Light, it is now time to step back

and let Mother Nature, as it were, take its rightful course.

She is now striving to rise to her perfection,

but cannot do so without your Light paving the way.

Bless her, and tell her you love her and are standing by as midwives,

so to speak, ready to help in any way you can.

Hinder her no more, but instead give her the command to “Push!”…..

to begin this great and glorious birth.

Her time is at hand, as is yours.

She has delayed as long as possible in order for her children

to come out of the place of fear.

But she can wait no longer.

Put away your fear and ride the tide of redemption with her!

Yes, the changes will come.

Yes, there will be moments of doubt and uncertainty when these changes begin.

But fear not! Know that we are with all of you,

and that each of you is exactly where you should be at any given moment.

Stand back and watch as the Glory of God is revealed to All.

My Love and Peace I leave with you.

I AM Sanat Kumara.

THE GRIDS AND THEIR HISTORY 

The following is an explanation of the grids that have been established

by Sananda’s Eagles and those participating in Project: Eagle Triad,

under the direction of Ashtar and Sananda.

One of the first tasks Ashtar asked us to do,

after he brought us together as Ashtar’s Trinity,

was to create and anchor three grids from our headquarters in Sedona, Arizona.

Two of these grids were more ‘personal’, i.e.,

one surrounding the Ashtar Command office,

and the second one surrounding Sedona and the nearby area.

The third was a planetary grid that is now part of the Trinity Project.

On the appointed days, and at the appointed location,

with Ashtar and others in attendance,

we began the establishing and anchoring of these grids

which became the basis for the work ahead.

 

The First Grid    –   May 11, 1999 

This grid would cover all of the Sedona area including the underground Lemurian City.

According to the instructions we were given,

it would initially be set into the ground under the center of the house

as an ‘egg’ that we would need to hatch and expand,

moving out horizontally from the center.

As we got into position, we could feel the energy getting stronger

and much more powerful.

This ‘egg’ was first infused with the Violet Ray,which caused it to begin glowing.

Next, it was infused with the Electric Blue Ray that caused it to begin to hum and vibrate.

Lastly, we infused the egg with Golden Christ Light Energy,

at which point the egg was glowing and vibrating.

We then activated the egg,

and out of it came a fine mesh grid that extended 25 miles in diameter, as was our intent.

The energy went out in wave after wave,

continuing to increase in vibrational frequency and Light,

getting stronger with each wave that the egg produced.

Once the grid was firmly in place,

what had been the egg was now a Star,

shining in Golden Light.

 

The Second Grid    –   May 15, 1999 

We, along with many higher-dimensional Beings,

gathered again in the center of the house for the creation of the second grid.

We had, once again, been guided to utilize the same crystal egg

that we had used in the first grid,

with each of us holding the egg crystal as we infused the actual egg.

The egg this time, however, was planted in the middle of the star

that was made manifest during the creation of the first grid.

It was then infused with the Violet Ray, the Electric Blue Ray,

and the Golden Christ Light Ray.

Once the egg had been infused, we activated it,which caused the grid to expand vertically.

We could feel the waves of energy almost like a tornado,

going upward and downward.

The intensity of the energy was even higher than the first time,

however, we had adapted to the higher waves of energy

and this time is did not hit us as hard.

The third grid was to be placed on the 18th of May,and it will be spherical in nature.

Once this grid is in place, the entire area will be fully within the grid.

When that is complete, we shall be placing the fourth grid,which will be for the Earth.

For this grid, we were instructed to use Tachyon balls

that are designed to assist the planet in remembering the original Blueprint.

 

The Third Grid   –  May 24, 1999 

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the anchoring of this grid was delayed for one week.

This third grid that we were asked to implement,

unlike the first two, was designed as a ‘planetary’ grid,

surrounding the entire Earth. To establish this grid,

we were directed in the planting of a certain number of crystals in a certain circular pattern

surrounding the Ashtar’s Trinity office on the outside of the building.

We were also told that the Lemurians were adding all of their energy with ours

in the creation of this grid.

It was explained to us that there would be three waves

that would be created through the crystals.

The first would be spinning in a counter-clockwise manner,

sitting just above and around the dwelling.

The second one would spin in a clockwise manner from the center of the house,

and the third one would be just above the ground

and would spin in a counter-clockwise direction.

Once all three were activated, we set the spin ratio of each wave to 13-20-33.

At this point, the grid shot up, down, and out, covering the entire planet.

The colors of this grid are like a rainbow and

it is assisting the planet with her birthing process.

The Lemurians informed us that the planting of this grid was extremely powerful

and very successful, which was a nice validation of what we ourselves were feeling. We were also told

that, once this grid was in place,other grids would be able to be

established that would assist in bringing about the full cleansing of the planet,

assisting Earth and the people more fully with the Ascension process.

During a visit from Ashtar the next week,

we were told that there was some work that needed to be done

on the grid surrounding the Sedona area, i.e.,

doubling it in size and reinforcing it with the Golden-White Light.

To do so, we, along with Ashtar, took our positions seated on the floor in a triangle formation.

This was the exact place where the original grid had been anchored.

Having come together with unity of purpose and intent,

we proceeded to make the requested changes to the grids.

 

New Grids 

Since that time in 1999, Ashtar and Sananda have asked

those participating in Project: Eagle Triad to establish many other planetary grids

that will aid in the ultimate cleansing and ascension of Earthand her inhabitants.

The following is a partial list of those grids:

 

The Eagle Grid, consisting of all members working within the Trinity Project.

The Lightworker Grid, consisting of all that are termed ‘Lightworkers’.

The Eagle/Earth Grid, which connects each Eagle to the Heart of our Mother Earth.

The Crystal Grid, which runs between all the specially-charged water crystals

that were planted within the Earth, the large Celestial crystal in Sedona

that is anchoring this grid, and the father and brother crystals

to it that are located at the North Pole and South Pole of our planet.

The Clean Air Crystal Grid,

running between all the Clean Air Crystals and the large crystals

located in Sedona and the North and South Poles.

The Crystal/Eagle Grid connects the Eagles of Project: Eagle Triad

with all the various water and clean air crystals

which have been placed within the Earth or in the oceans, etc.,

and ALSO those Eagles who are drinking one of the crystal-charged waters.

The Solar/Eagle Grid connects all Eagles to the core of our Sun.

The Diamond Heart Core Grid that connects the Hearts/Minds of the Eagles

to the Hearts/Minds of all other humans upon Earth,

and then proceeding into the mass consciousness grid that surrounds the planet.

There are also other ‘minor’ grids we are working with

during our Trinity Project meditations.

More will be added as they are established.

gaia_energy1

 

 

Energetic Pulses of 5-7D Light dissolve all shadow appearances

and clarify to Higher Awareness.

Frantications are diminished,

followed by dissolution.

Extraneous energetics are cleared,

first in individual Hue-Beings and hu-beings,

followed by rapid collective clearance.

All darkness is now dispelled.

Paths of the Higher Life of Light are now

fully illumined within all Gaia inhabitants.

Focus on untenables is softened, then dissolved.

Wes Annac – Gaia Ascending With Us, Part 1/2 – 10-8-14

Credit: Natural Pantheist

Written by Wes Annac, The Culture of Awareness

We aren’t the only ones who are ascending in this potent and transformative time – the planet we’re blessed to live on is also experiencing an ascension from the third dimension to the fifth.

Some channeled sources have told us that Gaia’s already completed her ascension process and waits for her surface to catch up, but whether or not she’s already ascended, she’s experiencing this process right along with us.

I think we should love, respect and nurture Gaia far more than we have, and it goes without saying that all of the destruction and mayhem humanity feeds will need to come to an end.

We need to stop polluting our planet if we want to help her (or ourselves) ascend, and even though most of humanity wouldn’t be open to what I’m about to say, we can actually communicate with Gaia in our minds and hearts if we want.

Is it difficult to believe that we can connect with the spirit of the earth and receive a wealth of flowing advice and guidance related to our individual and collective ascension paths? We certainly can, but like anything else, our beliefs and what we choose to accept as reality will become reality.

If we believe we can telepathically communicate with the spirit of our evolving earth, then we will. In a lot of ways, we simply have to embrace this idea to experience the flowing fruits of our belief.

Gaia’s experiencing a physical and spiritual ascension just like we are, and something tells me that the spirit of our planet actually strives to connect with each of her human cells so she can help us through our difficult but worthwhile ascension processes.

We’ll connect with Gaia in a realer and purer way when we’re back in the higher realms, but while we’re still in the third and fourth dimensions, we’ll have to rely on the greater abilities we’re just starting to access and hone if we want to communicate with her.

We might even be able to help her amidst her difficult ascension process, and one of the best (and most obvious) ways we can assist this process is to refuse to feed the pollution and destruction that plague her.

We don’t have to live like the rest of humanity, and we can go out of our way to integrate consciousness into our lifestyles and the manner in which we treat the planet that hosts our life.

Humanity’s pollution won’t cause us to experience any sort of chaotic extinction-level-event like some people think, but Gaia does have a lot of cleansing to do that could involve natural disasters.

The best thing we can do is send as much love as we can muster up in hopes that it mitigates any damage her necessary cleansing could cause, and communicating directly with her could help the whole process go smoother.

Grounding the greater energy we’re starting to feel into Gaia’s core is one of the best ways to assist with her ascension, the Arcturians through Suzanne Lie explain.

“This decision to consciously unite with your Galactic and/or Celestial energies, and to ground that expanded energy field in the body of Gaia is the first step towards assisting Gaia with Her Ascension. Remember, whatever Gaia’s Beings experience greatly affects the entire planet.

“Much of humanity has forgotten that Gaia is a living Being who has volunteered to be the ‘School for Ascension’ for your sector of space.” (1)

Gaia made certain ‘promises’ in the higher spheres, just like we did, that’ve proven difficult to live up to in the lower.

“Gaia, like yourselves, made promises from the higher dimensions of reality without realizing how extremely difficult it would be to carry out those promises in the lower frequencies of the physical plane. Furthermore, these promises were made long before Her planetary frequency dropped so severely after the destruction of Atlantis.” (2)

The Lightworkers, wanderers, starseeds, etc. incarnated on Gaia to help her live up to her promises and complete her ascension.

“Because of Gaia’s fall into the lower third dimension, the forces of darkness could take a strong hold on Her planet. To assist dear Gaia, your Galactic and Celestial Selves volunteered to take a form on Her body to assist in raising Her frequency.” (3)

Every creature on earth is experiencing physical/spiritual ascension, the Andromedan Council through Anna Merkaba tells us, and this includes the animals.

“Let it be known that the animal kingdom is going through the exact same allocation of powers and allocations of consciousness.

“And hence, those of you dwelling on Gaia have indeed noticed the expansion of consciousness, and the sudden change in the behavioral modalities of the animal kingdom. For the animal kingdom is expanding their consciousness as we speak.” (4)

If we want to ascend and help our planet do the same, we’ll have to recognize that we aren’t the only creatures on earth capable of embracing a higher consciousness.

“In order for humanity to integrate all that it is to be integrated into the newly-built society, each and every individual must understand that the experience of Gaia’s ascension involves every single conscious being dwelling therein.

“And so, to assist Gaia in fully raising her vibrations to a degree that most are waiting for, humanity must embrace and understand, that indeed, they are not the only ones who are capable of understanding, the Universal Laws of Creation, Manifestation, and Abundance.” (5)

It should go without saying that we’ll have to unite with the animal kingdom if we want to raise our vibration and ascend, and the sooner we realize this, the sooner we can cease mistreating and disrespecting this planet’s animals and let them live as they’re rightfully intended to.

Something tells me that the lower genetic habits of killing and eating other, fellow creatures that are common in humans and animals will fade as our collective vibration rises, and not only humans, but animals will cease eating one another when we can integrate the higher consciousness the Andromedans speak of.

We can start these wonderful genetic changes by putting down the meat and turning to healthy, wholesome fruits/veggies/nuts/oats/grains for the sustenance we seek, and even plants will soon be recognized for their higher consciousness and their potential to help mankind see the light.
