Our Ceremony began early in the
morning when we met at the shores of the lake and silently climbed into
six boats. Our boats traveled two abreast out to the island in the middle
of the lake. There they separated, with three boats going to the left
of the island and three boats going to the right. As we rounded the
back of the island we could finally see the approach of the three boats
we had separated from. Suddenly the sound of Watanabe's conch shell
pierced the early morning stillness and the activation of Third Gate
had officially begun.
As our boats approached each
other, we began to sing Ayoka in star language, extending our
arms out in stylized greeting while stretching open the fabric of time
and space. Our boats passed one another thus on the far side of the
island, then we continued our journey back to the front of the island.
You could hear the strains of Ayoka gently wafting on the wind.
It was totally exquisite. Then we joined together once again, this time
in two rows of three boats and still singing Ayoka made our way
Outside the Festival Hall, our
bus was waiting to take us up into the mountains to Lake Završnica, the site of our
Ceremony. It was a lovely meadow nestled beside a small, pale green
lake. The nearby peaks were triangular and majestic and reminded us
of the Pululahua Crater in Ecuador where we had activated Second Gate
in 1993. In addition to our focused Master Cylinder Group, at least
fifty more people arrived to join with us in activating the First Part
of Third Gate. They came from Slovenija, Croatia, Bosnia and even Brazil!
It is sometimes challenging trying
to find the right ways to integrate new people into the very aligned
One Being of our Master Cylinder Group. We decided upon a middle ground,
letting them participate in some dances, but not all, and to be Guardians
whenever they wished. While these newcomers gave us the numbers we needed
for a really effective Master Cylinder, I was very sorry that they had
not been able to fully align with us
during the activities of the preceding days.
We began with a Starry Procession,
our original 11:11 Sacred Dance, which was an important part of
the Opening of the Doorway of the 11:11 in January 1992. The Starry
Procession has been performed all over the world since then and
always has a profound effect of realigning the stars and taking us deeper
into the Invisible.
Then we moved on to the Earth-Star
Dance. For the first time, I decided not to participate in this
dance, so Ray and I became Inner Guardians, holding the sanctity of
the energy right outside the dancers. We still had all the Outer Guardians
in position around our meadow. Nova and Omashar soon joined Ray and
me as Inner Guardians and we quickly formed a very strong One Being
protecting the extreme vulnerability of this dance. We stood as One,
embracing all the dancers in our One Heart.
Although we have performed the
Earth-Star Dance many times since it was born in June 1995 in
Finland, this was the first time that it was danced outside in broad
daylight, and this proved to be quite significant. The dancers were
magnificent, fully embodying the Earth & Star Beings, giving their
all to bring them alive. From the vantage point of being a Guardian,
I was able to see many aspects of this dance which I had not seen before.
I was amazed by the great tenderness and total rawness of the Earth-Star
Suddenly I knew that I was watching
something very important, that history was being made right before our
eyes and that an ancient fairy prophecy was being fulfilled! The only
other time in my life that I have been aware of taking part in the fulfillment
of this type of ancient prophecy was many years ago during the Gnome
Initiation which I participated in that took place in Quebec, Canada.
I have written about this in my book, The Star-Borne.
The ancient fairy prophecy that
was being fulfilled today went something like this,
the primordial Earth Beings
And that is exactly what happened
on May 17th in a mountain meadow above Bled, Slovenija! It was a total
surprise and a miraculous gift to all.
As always, there is more!
Our Ceremony moved on to the Lotus Dance in which everyone participated.
This meant that some people were doing the dance for the first time,
while others were quite familiar with it. Dancing with those who are
learning the dance for the first time often lowers the resonance of
what could be achieved with a focused group of unified individuals, yet
it gives our One Being the opportunity to expand. At this point, it
was somewhat of a trade off. . .
For some reason, Ray, Watanabe,
Nova, Elara & I decided not to participate in this dance. And it
just wasn't done with the calibration of energy that is required to
lift it into the subtle realms of the Greater Reality. I was consciously
choosing to let go of some of the huge responsibility I've been carrying
for years in regards to our passage through the 11:11.
And that this responsibility now shifts from one person to One Being. In order
to facilitate this shift, sometimes I simply remove myself so that others
can step in.
This is a great idea, except
that today at our important first Third Gate Activation, the energy
was falling fast. Suddenly a huge, dark rain cloud loomed up over the
nearest mountain threatening to wipe out our entire Ceremony. I'm sure
that I was not the only one present who had a memory flash before them
of our traumatic rain-soaked night at Machu Picchu during our Peruvian
Reunion. We had to do something fast to recalibrate the energies and
put this Activation back on track!
I could only think of one thing
to do ---The Sacred Spiral Dance! Our Master Cylinder Group had
practiced this well and had even learned to get into position for the
dance by walking in two lines as One Being, all stepping in the same
sets of footprints. It was time for us to bring out our mastery!
Everyone had been prepared that
if something unusual happened, or if the energy seemed to drop, that
we were to align into an even stronger One Being than before. Now was the time. I called our Master Cylinder forth and we formed two lines by standing
next to our partner. Just to be on the cautious side, I thought that
we would do a little practice stepping in synchronicity before we began
the dance for real. Well, no-one could do it anymore! Our One Being
was falling apart, just when it was most needed.
What was now required was a miracle,
or at least some quick thinking. With a flash of inspiration, I took
the two lines and quickly formed them into two circles which became
a Lotus Dance. A rather perfect Lotus Dance. . . A powerful
Lotus Dance which anchored the One Heart and aligned us back
into One Being. After 15 minutes or so, we spun off our circles and
brought them back into two lines. Here we were, standing beside our
partner for the Sacred Spiral Dance again.
This time we all stepped in unison
and our One Being was fully reborn. Our two lines walked as ONE until
they became the two spirals of the Sacred Spiral Dance. As the
music began, we spiraled inwards as one organic whole. It was magnificent!
With each step we could feel the reconfiguration taking place, "Kachunk,
kachunk, kachunk." With each step we made, endless, limitless
potential was being spiraled into form. Always moving deeper into the
Core, fine-tuning all of us, the entire planet, realigning everything
into greater Oneness, with total focused intent, in a profound state
of Sacred Union.
Many of us could feel the presence
of that heightened sense of iridescence which is present when we are
truly dancing in the Spaces-In-Between. Ray, my partner who was leading
one of the spirals, said that everything became a sparkling white and
he could see right through me. The once threatening rain clouds sent
down a soft misty rain, like tender kisses soft and sweet. Some Guardians
were in a state of blissful ecstasy, imbued with the Greater Love. Many
saw and felt the greatness of this dance, the power of this eternal
moment, the blessing of being a part of such a rare and majestic experience.
We all knew that something had
irrevocably changed and that now we had truly activated the first phase
of Third Gate. We were transformed far beyond our knowing. We had been
part of something so deep, so unfathomable, coming from an unspeakably
vast Source. All I can say is, "What a blessing!"
Looking back on this moment from
a few days later, I saw that I was still needed, that I still had immense
skills at evoking our One Being, but that without our One Being, nothing
New can happen. And it was our One Being who came forth that day just
when it was most needed, and for that, I shall be eternally grateful.
It was strange, but when our
Activation Ceremony was finished, we had no elated sense of completion like we
had at the end of the First or Second Gates. We knew that the
Activation of Third Gate had just begun. And that since the scope of
this Gate is so inconceivably vast, we still have much to do birthing
the New, both within our own beings and within the world around us.
These heightened energies will be in effect until the final Third Gate
Activation is completed in Australia in October.
