Return of the Phoenix. Appleby
says that the Phoenix myth relates to the periodic reversal of the Earth’s
magnetic field due to the long-term sunspot cycle which culminates in a solar
magnetic reversal. This magnetic reversal is due in 2012. Appleby quotes Michael
Mandeville’s self-published book The Return of the
predicts the fifth flight of the Phoenix on December 22 2012, when we are due
for a crustal displacement
the lithosphere as much as 30 degrees of latitude.
The Phoenix, or Bennu bird
scientists have, says Appleby, determined that the date of the most recent
magnetic reversal, or shift occurred (but not a "full
reversal") - in 10,500 BC.* This happens to
agree "with extraordinary exactness"
with the date that Edgar Cayce’s visions revealed as the time the Great Pyramid was
(actually 10,490 BC). It is also the date which alternative Egyptologists and geologists have
determined as the construction date
of the Sphinx. Thus the Sphinx and Pyramid were designed as clues to last
12,500 years and help warn us of the coming changes in 2012, and lead us to
the Hall of Records.
(*Source was probably Alan Alford's Gods of the New Millennium, p.225 & 625 - the Swedes reported in New Scientist 6/1/1972, p.7, that "a reversal of the Earth's magnetic field had occurred 12, 400 years ago" which gives 10,428 BC; This event is known as the Gothenburg Magnetic Flip, and occurred 12,700 years ago (10,700 BC) according to Dr Paul LaViolette, (item 48) other sources say 12,500 years ago and 12,600 years ago There seems to be disagreement as to whether this event was a magnetic reversal or just a local flutuation. LaViolette calls it a "substantial geomagnetic disturbance". Gregg Braden quotes a later Swedish paper, which indicates that it WAS a 180 degree shift, due to new evidence from the southern hemisphere, and that it occurred 13,200 years ago; see item 32. Alford thinks the Phoenix myth is about an exploded planet)
At vernal equinox, 10,500 BC; the Sun in Leo, lines up with the Sphinx, while Orion's belt culminates at the meridian - a pattern mimicked on the ground by the 3 pyramids
The Sphinx was
designed as a Phoenix (man + bull + lion +eagle), and is aligned
to a point on the horizon which
gives us a clue as to the meaning of the Phoenix legend.
The Sphinx faces the point on the horizon where the vernal equinox
(Appleby disputes this and says it was the cross quarter sunrise), was in Leo,
and Orion was at its lowest point in the sky. This occurred in 10,500 BC, and
is Zep Tepi – the First Time of
Appleby says that the movement of Venus at that time was very specific
and is a pattern that is only repeated every 12,500 years.
He says that the pattern will repeat in 2012. Zep Tepi, or the
“First Time” of Osiris was in 10,500 BC, when Orion was at its
lowest point in the sky. The “Last Time” of Osiris, when Orion is at its
highest point, is ALSO due in 2012, says
However, Robert Bauval and his co-authors, who must be Appleby’s primary sources, give the date of the Last Time variously as 2450 AD and 2500 AD. Appleby may have made an error here, but has over-corrected it by saying that Bauval’s date for Zep Tepi should have been 11,500 BC, not 10,500 BC. The text under this diagram, (below) may have lead to some confusion, since at first glance it seems to give the future highest altitude of the star Al Nitak (Zeta Orionis) but actually gives its altitude circa 2000 AD ( 58 degrees 6 minutes). At least Appleby got his chapter heading right; Dates in Turmoil !
of monthly earth energy cycle;
in Tom Graves’s classic book, Needles of Stone, he reports the
findings of dowsers, that standing stones
have 7 narrow bands of double-strength
geomagnetic field running horizontally across the stone at various
heights. These bands move up and down the stone a little, following the lunar
cycle. Two bands are usually below ground, the third; just above or below the
surface, and the top band at, or very close to, the top of the stone.
"all seven bands, according to
several researchers I’ve talked to, are tapping points into a spiral release
of some kind of energy that moves up and down the stone, following that (sic)
lunar cycle. The cycle appears to control the release of this energy in a
sine-wave form, the zero-points of the cycle occurring on the 6th day after
new and full moon."
dowser Guy Underwood had also noticed the lunar connection, and remarked that
the months in the Celtic calendar had started on the 6th day after the new
moon, and were divided into two fortnights. These cycles have now been
monitored and found to repeat to an accuracy of within seven minutes per
fortnight. The Celtic calendar was obviously based on this energy cycle, in
which the spiral feeds energy from the ground to the sky during one half of
the cycle, and feeds from the sky to the ground during the other half.
(It may be that the bands act like chakras). I have just realised that
the 21st December 2012 will not only be the winter solstice, but is also 6
days after the new moon*. This is a coincidence which would have been of
significance to the Celts.
*I got this information from Hancock's Fingerprints of the Gods (p.499), where he quotes Michael Coe. However, an astronomy website gives 13th December 2012 as the date of the new moon, so that somewhat negates this item.
one of the most prominent modern prophets, or "futurists", Scallion
- who has been compared to Edgar Cayce and Nostradamus - publishes his earth
changes report nine times per year. It is an eight-page newsletter focusing on
his most recent visions. In his recent book, Notes From The
Cosmos, (1997), he
records an impressive list of uncannily accurate predictions that he made for
the years 1991-1997, and published in ECR, plus the facts of what actually
occurred. He is most famous for his prediction of the epi-centre of the 1994
Northridge earthquake in California, which he made in 1993.
Precession of the equinoxes is caused by the 23. 5 degree tilt of the earth's axis.
Scallion says that in a vision, he saw the planet Mars wobble on its axis, which causes its smallest moon, Phobos, to move in a "snake-like motion", pushed out of its orbit by the approach of the Blue Star, now like a second sun. Phobos spirals towards the Earth’s orbit, and ricochets off our atmosphere, causing hurricanes and tidal waves, then earthquakes and volcanoes, then a melting of the ice-caps and global flooding. He seems to have covered it all here! See News Flash

point of these earth changes was to be 2012, but the cycle has been affected
cycles -pole shifts - occur at the eleven thousand six hundred year interval,
with lesser cycles occurring at
harmonic sub-junctures in the greater cycle. A full magnetic reversal would
regularly occur on the sun in the year 2012. However, due to the expansion of
thought forms and nuclear activity in your-world, the cycle has been modified,
and now occurs earlier, before preparations are completed. But knowing these
cycles can enable shifts to occur in your world, so that the cycle can be
corrected. In doing so, preparation will be facilitated in our combined
worlds. The effects of such a solar reversal brings great changes to our
combined worlds, making for new seasons, and indeed, new species."
information comes from the "Etherians", who go on to explain the
meaning of crop circles in relation to the earth changes.
Mexico Mystique, Frank Waters says archaeologist
Laurette Sejourne has
demonstrated (in her book Burning Water), "that the quincunx is the most
frequently occurring symbol throughout Mesoamerica". Teotihuacan is
actually laid out in the shape of a
These forms are hieroglyphs for Venus, due to its 5-fold cycle
"It symbolises the four
previous worlds or suns and the present fifth sun as their unifying
center. But reconciliation of the bi-polar opposites during this era must
take place within the human heart. So the quincunx also symbolises
Quetzalcoatl who by penitence and self-sacrifice made a final ascent out of
matter into spirit, and was transformed into
The quincunx can be seen at the centre of the Aztec Sunstone, where the four previous Suns surround the fifth Sun, in which we are living now; usually interpreted as the Sun of Movement, indicating that the cycle's end will be marked by an earthquake. Some researchers think the 5 Suns represent a series of 5 Great Cycles, of 5,200 Tuns each, adding to 26,000 Tuns - one Precession of the Equinoxes, meaning that 2012 will be the end of the last of the series, and the end of a full cycle of 26,000 years. The Aztecs had forgotten the Long Count and Great Cycle, but this possibility implies there may be some forgotten knowledge hidden in the Sunstone. More on this soon...

from a simple circle, the quincunx is the most enduring crop formation, some
versions of which, (e.g. The Maltese cross, Morestead, Hampshire, 1997), are
almost identical to Mexican forms shown in Mexico Mystique. In a newly
published book (The
secret History of Crop Circles, 1998), Terry Wilson
reveals that the first known appearance of the quincunx was in the 1950s in
Heytesbury, Wiltshire, about the time of the first recorded crop circle in
Mexico (in sweetcorn!). Mexico also had its own quincunx in Milbaheta in 1977.

geologist Gregg Braden has pointed out that Earth’s magnetic field has
dropped 58% in the last 2000 years, and that the rate has risen to a further
6% in the last 100 years. In
other words, the global magnetic field is dropping at an accelerating rate
towards a "zero point" at which the polarity of Earth will reverse.
Geological surveys of the mid-Atlantic ridge shows that this has happened many
times before in the history of the Earth. Braden says that the declining
magnetic field is causing the Schumann resonance of the ionosphere to
increase, and that it is currently resonating at between 8.6 - 9 hz, And will
level out at 13 hz -the next number in the Fibbonacci series. The whole
process is connected to the Mayan calendar, the largest increase being
recorded in 1987, which is when the Harmonic Convergence occurred. (He says
the last polar reversal was 13,200 years ago - close to half a precession
cycle see item 28).
Various scientific websites confirm these claims - of a declining magnetic field - in general, though they differ in details - eg: Brittanica says the average time between reversals is 300,000 to a million years, and takes 5,000 years to reverse, but it does shrink to zero during reversal, allowing entrance to cosmic rays, that would cause mutations. The Answer Man says the average is every 500,000 years, and the last one was 700,000 years ago, and that the field strength has dropped 8% in the last 150 years Ask the Space Scientist says it reverses every 250,000 years; is decreasing at 0.07% per year and will be at zero in 4,000 years; the reversal can take less than 100 years, and the last one was 250,000 years ago; American Scientist says it was 780,000 years ago; Science Frontiers says the Steens mountain volcanic record indicates that a 180 degree reversal took 4,500 years, but included 3 periods of very rapid change; An update on Steens mountain in Science Frontiers says the field moved at 6 degrees per day; Dr Paul LaViolette says in Earth Under Fire (see item 48) the Steens mountain info shows that a reversal would take only 2 months (based on the earlier 3 degrees per day figure); Andrew p. Roberts suggests that confusion arises because people fail to differentiate between "polarity transitions and excusions of the geomagnetic field"; The Los Alamos National Laboratory has done an interesting computer simulation to help understand this cycle.
The situation regarding Schumann resonance is harder to answer. Scientists in USA & Western Europe are mostly saying it hasn't changed (Braden got his information from Russia and Norway) , yet the Climatology department of Arizona State University is using changing Schumann resonance values as an accurate measure of global temperatures, so the jury is still out on this one.
Geomagnetic Zero Point coincides with zero rotation, says Braden...............................................Previous geomagnetic reversals
order to adapt, we must allow our bodies to alter their resonant frequency to
match that of the earth. The process of adaptation is blocked by negative
emotion, so we must become compassionate, and generate unconditional love.
Shortly before Earth Shift, some people may achieve resonance in advance of
the mass of humanity, and their "mer-ka-ba fields" - counter-posed
tetrahedronal fields - will counter-rotate and merge to form a saucer-shaped
light body, carrying those people into the fourth dimension. This is the
Rapture. Sacred sites are places of a low magnetic field, allowing an easier-
alteration of frequency; (for confirmation of this, see Places of Power
by Paul Devereux).
have found an interesting piece of information that may corroborate the above
Monroe, a pioneer- of techniques to induce out-of-body
experiences, states that when an OBE is occurring, the body’s polarity or
electromagnetic field reverses itself. This has been witnessed by Michael
Hutchison, observing experiments at the Monroe
Institute. If the Earth’s
magnetic field reverses, would this trigger the mass of humanity to have an
out-of body experience?

as next precessional age.
Alan Alford, in his book
of the New Millennium, has studied ancient
Babylonian and Sumerian mythology, and concluded that the gods of Babylon each
ruled for one precessional age, which is a twelfth of an entire precession of
the equinoxes. Combining "the latest scientific estimates" of the
length of a precessional age (2,148 years, as quoted by archaeo-astronomer,
Jane Sellers), with biblical and Babylonian information, Alford concludes that
the precessional age of Marduk began in 2284 BC. The next one began 2,148
years later, in 135 BC, and, counting forward another 2,148 years, says
Alford, brings us to the next one in 2012.
Alford does not think the planet Nibiru will return in 2012, as some have speculated, (see item 27) but predicts it in AD 3400. He does, however, see the start of the next precessional age as a likely time for the return of the gods. This implies that they are lurking somewhere in the vicinity of the solar system, as predicted by Robert Temple in the latest edition of the Sirius Mystery. He also thinks that Stonehenge was designed to measure precession, and since John Major Jenkins has now discovered that the real purpose of the long-count Mayan Calendar was to track the 26,000-year cycle of precession which ends in 2012, maybe Stonehenge is a 2012 predictor, like the pyramid of Kukulcan in Chichen Itza (see next item).
