Excerpt from "Shamanic Awakening"

Chapter 8: Moths to a Flame

by Sandra Corcoran, M.Ed., CDD

In Gram Twylah’s opinion, the twenty-five years following the Harmonic Convergence would be a period during which we could realize our full potential of illumination and so have the ability to take our place as a planetary family in the cosmos. This time span included the widely cited Mayan transition date of 2012. During these preparatory years, we would experience deep personal and collective fears, witness vast injustices around the world, and be held accountable for the far-reaching cultural and environmental destruction we have caused through our greed. “These tribulations,” Gram said, “are not punishments, but keys that can unlock our hearts, so that through love and respect we can accelerate personal growth, unite globally, and become proper stewards of the Earth, eventually taking our place in the galactic unfolding.” Gram felt that if we all did our self-work, by the end of this preparatory period we could each shift our frequency enough so that together we could transform our reality, both on our planet and as part of the fabric of the cosmos.

Gram continued with the prophecies by telling us the elders predicted that during the Fourth World people would migrate from the east to the Americas. They would have only a superficial understanding of the interrelatedness of all things and so would greedily search for personal power. They would be dominators of the environment, digging first into the earth, then the oceans, then the moon. The predictions were that when they started to dig into the sun and use its secrets—such as harnessing nuclear fusion not for the benign purpose of creating heat, but for a violent one such as creating weapons of destruction—that violation would trigger the next cleansing. Illumination, she said, is possible during the Fifth World, which would herald a time of -collapse of the old paradigms, environmentally, politically, economically, and religiously.

The elders said that the Fifth World would be announced by a specific blue-hued celestial body, called the Blue Star that would show itself in the Milky Way. There is a prophecy held by the Hopi People that speaks of the Blue Star Kachina,* which they also call Sirius, the bright star in the Canis Major constellation. Oh Shinnah had spoken about this, and it is related in Frank Waters’s Book of the Hopi that the Hopi prophecy declares, “When the Blue Star Kachina makes its appearance in the heavens, the Fifth World will emerge.” The Hopi will enter a new cycle of consciousness when Saquasohuh (Blue Star) Kachina removes his mask during the ceremonial dances in front of the uninitiated. At that time they will stop their ancient ceremonies, as the emergence of the Fifth World will require new rituals. According to Gram Twylah, the appearance of the Blue Star would usher in a world of higher consciousness whereby we humans would recover the “Uniworld” and finally accept our responsibility for caring for it. Gram felt we were living in exciting times, and we had each chosen to be here at this momentous time in the Earth’s and humanity’s history to experience our part in and contribution to this reawakening.

Gram equated the Fourth World with what she called third--dimensional reality, which is bound by time and space and experienced predominately through our physical senses. When our reality is locked only into the third dimension, we limit our frequencies and this restricts us from experiencing the breadth of knowledge available in the higher realms. In contrast, the Fifth World is one of fourth- and fifth--dimensional reality,* which is unbounded and where humans can expand their awareness to access other inter- and multidimensional realities. It is my understanding that these higher dimensions carry more refined light frequencies so the negativity or denseness of the third dimension vibration cannot penetrate into those realms.

Many indigenous peoples, and those comfortable with the idea of other dimensions, already have a sense of their interconnectedness with the cosmos. However, those who have a more limited belief system—in which superiority, ownership, cultural control, and unchecked growth and consumption dominate—tend to struggle with this perception. Those who refuse to deal with the density of their actions or reactions, or who remain unaccountable for the negativity they willfully generate, will remain bound to the third-dimensional plane, continuing to experience chaos and lack. Gram suggested that at the end times those who inhabit the higher frequency dimensions will be invisible to those who remain on the lower frequency plane.

Gram predicted, as have others, that from December 2012 onward, many of us will have the opportunity to begin to live in this fourth- and fifth-dimensional awareness, conscious of, yet separate from, the chaos of the third-dimensional experience. She said of those who will vibrate at that more refined wavelength, “In that future, they will simply know and be.” She suggested we would begin to know that these challenging yet transformational times were upon us because we would be able to see different spectra of colors beyond what we normally have been able to perceive. Other signs would be both the discovery of new animal species and the increase in mutations in the animal kingdom.

Maya Perez had told me something similar: that we are all here at this time to learn how to hold the higher vibration of our potential. She felt that because we are spiritual beings, as spirit we had lived the expression of crystals, minerals, trees, the wind, fire, animals, even angels—everything was held within our field of knowing at the highest level. As a result, “in every incarnation, each of us has the capacity to learn to be more humble and to walk in the awareness of the light we actually are.” Maya felt strongly that everyone who has incarnated at this particular time in Earth’s history is here not to walk away from our problems but to work out in this lifetime where we are still asleep, especially as concerns the environment and our connection with each other. She said that “we are here now so every thought form and action that our souls have experienced since the beginning of time can be healed.”

She suggested that between the years 2010 and 2025 the “doors will start to close” and we will either ascend in consciousness or remain in suffering. Those who do not learn to raise their vibration and ascend in consciousness will have to continue coming back to the “the density of matter,” a period that she suggested may last another 30,000 to 40,000 years. However, those “who make it through the door will be able to know what’s happening in third-dimensional reality without having to experience it.” By learning to live with humility, love, faith, and discipline, we can expand our conscious awareness and attain the vibration that shifts us through the door, because “we each have the capacity to be the bright lights that we really are.”

I remember asking after hearing this information, “Maya, how do we stay in faith and raise our vibration when there are so many atrocities happening all around us?” She smiled and said, “You don’t lose what you don’t have. You either have faith or you don’t. It is through faith our desires are manifested. Faith is neither passive nor conditional.”

Gram and Maya related their beliefs back in the early 1990s, and as the years have unfolded I have seen many of their predictions play out, but not all. Native perspectives on prophecies and time differ from Western viewpoints in how they are perceived. Native people experience time as a cycle where the center is timeless and becomes the steady or present around which cycles of change are observed. Prophecy is formless, so events aren’t inevitable because our choices moment to moment determine our experiences. From the Western perception, time is about past, present, and future: thus within the form of history there is implied a beginning, middle, and end. Because of this mindset, many people have postulated an end to the world rather than a transformation of consciousness that makes possible a new worldview.
