Here are some commonly asked questions about participating in an 11:11 Master Cylinder:
WHO COMES TO A MASTER CYLINDER ?
Is it necessary to have participated in a previous 11:11 Gate Activation to come to the Ninth Gate Master Cylinder?
It doesn't matter if you've been to any previous 11:11 Master Cylinder, attended any 11:11 workshops or even read Solara's books. What does matter is if you feel deeply called to participate in the Ninth Gate Activation. Each 11:11 Gate takes place on a entirely different level with a specific keynote, resonance and purpose. Some people have made the commitment to participate in every Master Cylinder; others are drawn to only one or two.
QUESTION: What type of people participate?
Master Cylinders attract an interesting assortment of people. About half the group have participated in one or more of the previous 11:11 Gate Activations. For others, this is their first 11:11 Master Cylinder experience. Usually, 35 - 40 countries are represented. The age range can be from 13 - 80. Occupations include almost anything: artists, musicians, doctors, truck drivers, diplomats, lawyers, healers, soldiers, teachers, bartenders, business executives, farmers, construction workers, students, judges and writers. It's always a very loving and eclectic group of people. Many of us begin the week as strangers, but by the time we depart, we have become lifelong friends. Everyone is an integral part of our One Being.
This Ninth Gate Master Cylinder is calling forth the True Ones. To facilitate this, we will be immersed in a deeply supportive environment to strengthen our inner connection as a True One.
QUESTION: My English is not so good. Will you have translators?
If there are enough people who need a translator, usually there are people willing to translate within our Master Cylinder Group. At the last Activation, everything was translated into Spanish, German, Portuguese, Hungarian and Russian. If you don't speak much English, it would greatly serve you to learn as much as possible before Ninth Gate. Many Balinese speak good English, so it will make your communications with them much easier, unless you speak Indonesian.
QUESTION: Can I bring my children?
11:11 Activations require a strongly focused Master Cylinder Group. Because of this, we feel that only children who are old enough to fully participate should be there. You can bring a younger child with you as long as you provide a full time caregiver for them.
QUESTION: Can I bring a partner or friend with me who won't be participating?
No. We have a limited number of rooms at our hotel and must save them for the participants. It's always preferable if your partner participates, otherwise, you will have some incredibly deep experiences which they won't be sharing with you; sometimes this creates a gap.
QUESTION: When do I need to register?
The Ninth Gate Master Cylinder is going to fill up quickly. Since space is limited, some people from countries where we get lots of registrations, might be put on a temporary waiting list so we can achieve a balance of countries and sexes.
Here's a link to the Master Cylinder Registration Form . Please also email us a recent color photograph of yourself to firstname.lastname@example.org
PLEASE DO NOT SEND A DEPOSIT UNTIL YOU HAVE RECEIVED A CONFIRMATION FROM US!
QUESTION: What's the difference between being in an 11:11 Anchor Group & participating in the Master Cylinder?
11:11 Anchor Groups are a very important part of the Activation of an 11:11 Gate. They form the outposts of our One Being. They help anchor the incoming 11:11 energies into the far corners of our planet. However, the energies that they are anchoring are the energies which are sent forth to them from the 11:11 Master Cylinder at the center of the Activation.
Also, 11:11 Anchor Groups vary widely in resonance due to the various people organizing them, most of whom have never participated in a Master Cylinder. This is why we always urge Anchor Groups to pool their resources and send one representative to the Master Cylinder. This will make their Anchor activities much truer.
At the Master Cylinder, you are at the centerpoint of the 11:11 Activation. This is the key point where the new 11:11 energies first enter the planet. You are with a dedicated group of people who have come together from many countries to form One Being. You get to experience a full week of preparations for the Activation Ceremony by the people who most understand the 11:11 energies, including Solara. Being part of a Master Cylinder is the most powerful immersion into the 11:11 energies possible and the experience is quite unlike anything else!
MASTER CYLINDER PREPARATIONS
QUESTION: How can I prepare myself for coming to the Master Cylinder?
The cleaner we are when we arrive, the less clearing work we will have to do during the Master Cylinder preparations. Locate, heal and release any emotional or mental residue, fears, doubts, self-worth issues, old issues, areas of resistance, broken hearts, and anything else you can find. Be especially aware of anything within you that has passed its expiration date. This includes old vows, expired contracts with soul groups and individuals, old roles, outdated spiritual practices and duality-based beliefs. Let go of as much as you can so you can start fresh at the Master Cylinder.
Also highly recommended are Solara's Monthly Surf Reports which are available by subscription in English, German, Hungarian, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish. They contain lots of useful information to align ourselves with the prevailing 11:11 energies and are amazingly accurate and helpful. You can also read the Year 2010 Surf Report, as well as last year's Surf Reports by clicking on the SURF REPORTS tab on our home page.
Please read Solara's book How To Live Large on a Small Planet to become familiar with some of the concepts and terminology. And highly recommended for this time is Solara's book EL•AN•RA: The Healing of Orion. It's a great love story that absolutely turns duality inside out!
QUESTION: Why do the Master Cylinder preparations and activities take a week?
A week is not much time to take a group of virtual strangers from many different countries and levels of awareness and turn us into a strong, vital One Being. During the Ninth Gate Activation Prepartions or the Ceremony itself, there may be several times when we go off the map of the Known. When this happens, it's time for our One Being to leap into action. This is why our focus is on quickening our One Being and emerging as True Ones. The day after the Activation Ceremony is also important for sharing and integrating our experiences, and basking in PURE HEART LOVE while we have a joyous celebration.
QUESTION: I can't come for the entire week; can I arrive a few days late?
It is essential to participate for the entire time frame, from October 17 -27. Each time we have made an exception to this in the past, it has not served our group dynamic. The first few days are the most vitally important, especially if this is your first Master Cylinder. Many basics are covered, as we get to know one another and build the foundation of our Master Cylinder Group. Besides, you will not want to miss one moment of this amazing experience!
We always recommend arriving a few days prior to the arrival day of October 17th in order to rest from your journey and align yourself with the energies of Bali. This will help everyone to begin the first day of preparations with strong, fresh energy.
QUESTION: What do we do during the preparations? Is there a schedule of activities?
We usually have three sessions per day, but never have a set schedule of activities. We surf the energies and go with the flow of what is most needed, . We currently have ten 11:11 Sacred Dances and most of them will be practiced during the week; new ones could be created. With the combination of Solara's surfing abilities, Omashar's music, the 11:11 Facilitators and the eclectic mix of people from many countries in our One Being, the sessions are never dull.
Most of what we do is experiential, which means that you will feel a direct infusion of the Ultra Greater Reality and PURE HEART LOVE into the cells of your being. The energies can be quite intense or profoundly deep and subtle or wildly funny. A powerful LOVE energy is strongly felt. Challenges sometimes arise as old layers dissolve and we are given numerous opportunities to bring forth our true greatness. Breakthroughs abound....
Again, the focus is on forming a strong One Being who is ready for anything and fully emerging as True Ones. We never know exactly what we'll be doing during the Gate Activation itself, so we try to learn as much as we can during our preparations so we can pull out whatever is needed.
We will also make a special journey to Bali's center of traditional culture, Ubud.
QUESTION: Can I sell crafts or products during the week?
We always have a small sales area which is open a few times a day. This is an excellent opportunity to help pay for your trip. Please let us know in advance what you would like to bring. There is a 15% commission on all sales to help cover our expenses. We are also hoping to have the first copies of the totally new edition of Solara's book "The Star-Borne" available for sale.
QUESTION: Can I give private sessions or healings at the hotel?
Private sessions and healings are approved on an individual basis and permission must be requested in advance. Usually, permission is given only to those whose work we are already familiar with. Otherwise, healings and private sessions are not allowed so we can keep a unified focus.
QUESTION: What shall I bring?
Clothes for warm weather, white clothes for the Activation, sun block, mosquito repellent, camera, bathing suit and a sun hat. You might also want to bring a few small gifts from your country to give to beloved new friends and favorite hotel staff. Colorful sarongs for the Element Dance can be easily bought in Bali, unless you have a favorite one.
The weather in Bali will be hot and humid, with possible rain. So please bring aa few layers of white clothes for the Ninth Gate Activation Ceremony, a cloth or sarong to sit on at the Activation Ceremony, rain gear and sandals.
Please feel free to bring your laptop computer if you have one, as our hotel provides wireless internet connection in the rooms for $8 per day.
It's a good idea to bring some special, comfortable clothes that you make you feel beautiful to wear for the daily sessions. Your energy will feel much more calibrated than if you wear ordinary street clothes such as jeans and T shirts. Our Master Cylinder group is usually dressed in a colorful array of garments from around the world.
Bali is famous for its brilliant shopping with a vast array of gorgeous sarongs, silk scarves, carved Buddhas & sculptures, batiks, finely woven baskets, jewelry, windchimes and and numerous other handmade treasures at very reasonable prices. So don't bring too much with you. You can buy it once you get here. Ubud has myriad, fascinating shops and a large marketplace. (You could also plan on buying things to take back home with you, not just as gifts, but to sell. This is a great way to pay for your trip and support the Balinese artesans!)
SPECIAL HEALTH INFORMATION:
Bali is a malaria area. Please check with your National Health Department to see their recommendations. Since we will be staying in a 5 Star hotel, there are not many mosquitos, but there could be at our Activation site.
The UVA / UVB levels in Bali are very high, so please bring sun block. If your eyes are sensative to light, it is also a good idea to bring sunglasses.
QUESTION: What not to bring?
The focus of our 11:11 Master Cylinder is to form a strong One Being and to fully emerge as True Ones. To do this, we need a unified focus. So please don't bring separate personal agendas, ego or old baggage.
Drug use is never tolerated and will cause your expulsion from the Master Cylinder. PURE HEART LOVE is infinitely better than anything we could experience from drugs. Plus, Indonesia has a MANDATORY LIFE SENTENCE FOR POSSESSION OF DRUGS.
9th GATE ACTIVATION CEREMONY
QUESTION: What can we expect during the Ninth Gate Activation?
Expect the Unexpected! Each 11:11 Gate Activation Master Cylinder experience has been totally different. Usually, the Activation itself is easy, although there can be moments of tremendous challenges. We often go off the map of the known into totally new territory. Ninth Gate is going to be a strong one, since we will be there as True Ones.
Again, there is no set schedule. Whatever we do just flows into position. Expect to be totally present in your full being, alert and real. When you are in a Master Cylinder, you will be experiencing the strongest energies coming into the planet. It's very grounded, but extremely powerful. And you will feel the presence of all the 11:11 Anchor Groups around the world, aligned with us as One Being. There will also be a powerful infusion of the strongest LOVE you have every experienced. At the Activation Ceremony, many people experience visions and revelations; all are deeply touched. There is nothing else like an 11:11 Master Cylinder; it is the experience of a lifetime.
QUESTION: Why do we wear white clothing for the Activation?
We actually wear white clothing with bright colorful accents such as scarves or sarongs. White symbolizes the purity of our One Being. When we all wear white, there is no distraction from our Oneness.
QUESTION: What are Guardians?
Guardians hold the energy around the perimeter of our 11:11 Gate Activations. During the week, we will have Guardian training. Throughout the Activation, we will have at least eleven Guardians in position. Guardians serve together as One Being and help maintain the sanctity of the ceremony, making the center of our circle feel protected. We recommend that everyone serves as a Guardian for at least part of the ceremony as it's a profound, amazing experience. No matter what is happening in the center of the Master Cylinder, the Guardians are always larger. And no matter how vast and powerful the incoming 11:11 energies are, the Guardians help bring them in and through their physical bodies, anchoring the heightened energies into the Earth.
MASTER CYLINDER HOTEL QUESTIONS
QUESTION: Do we all have to stay at the same hotel? Can I camp or stay somewhere else?
It's vitally important that we all stay together as the Master Cylinders are very deep and intimate. Fortunately, we have a gorgeous hotel so we can feel comfortable while we open our beings to the most powerful PURE HEART LOVE we have ever felt.
QUESTION: Will there be a meal plan?
Our Meal Plan includes breakfast, lunch and dinner.
QUESTION: Can I just show up in Bali without registering in advance?
NO. Please don't just show up at the hotel without preregistering with us. Much advance planning goes into organizing an 11:11 Master Cylinder, such as obtaining special room rates, making rooming lists and meal plans, putting together transport to the Activation. All the expenses to the hotel have to be paid in full before we arrive in Bali.
QUESTION: Can I make my own reservations at the hotel?
Our hotel will not accept reservations for the Master Cylinder from anyone except us.
QUESTION: Can I arrive at the hotel earlier than October 17th or stay later than October 27th?
Yes. The Pan Pacific Nirwana Resort is extending its special rate to us for two days in advance and two days afterwards. It is highly recommended to arrive in Bali 2-3 days before the Master Cylinder preparations begin on October 17th. This gives everyone enough time to rest from your journey and adjust to the change in climate.
Information on these options will be available when you register.
MASTER CYLINDER VISA QUESTIONS
QUESTION: Do I need a visa to enter Bali, Indonesia?
Most people do. Citizens of 62 countries can obtain a VISA - FREE SHORT VISIT FOR TOURISTS upon their arrival at the Denpasar Airport. Despite the title, the Visa isn't free and costs US $25. These visas are valid for a stay of up to 30 days and CANNOT BE EXTENDED. Citizens of Peru and Chile may not require a visa. Please check with the Indonesian Embassy in your country to find out the Visa requirement for your nationality. There is also a Departure Tax of US $16 when you leave Bali.
MASTER CYLINDER PAYMENT QUESTIONS
QUESTION: Why does it cost money to attend?
Each 11:11 Gate Activation takes many months of preparation. The location must be visited several months ahead of time and the proper Activation Site found. Hotels and conference rooms must be booked. Most of the costs are to cover the cost of hotel rooms and meals. In addition to this, sound systems and generators must be rented and transportation is chartered. Pages of information are written, sent forth and put on this website. Musicians are hired and expenses are paid for the staff. 11:11 Master Cylinders operate on a very tiny profit margin; it takes over 140 people before we break even on the basic expenses, and much more than that before there is any financial compensation for the time spent and work done. There is an immense amount of work involved in organizing an 11:11 Gate Activation and in the preparation of the Master Cylinder and on a vaster scale, preparing the planet for the energies of the new 11:11 Gate.
QUESTION: Are discounts or scholarships available?
We are gratefully accepting donations to the Nine Gate Scholarship Fund. Any money received will be used to help worthy people pay their 9th Gate expenses.
Part of our individual breakthrough as a True One is for each of us to personally raise the money to get there. If we make a firm commitment to be there, no matter what, we will manifest the needed funds much easier than we can imagine. Each of us can manifest them by finding a creative solution. Perhaps, ask all your friends to contribute a little bit, or your Anchor Group, or have a yard sale or take an extra job. And, there's always the option of throwing it on a credit card or getting a loan to pay off later.
QUESTION: How can I pay? Can I pay by credit card?
Our credit card processor does not allow us to accept credit card payments for conferences or travel. However, you can send a credit card payment via Paypal . (https://www.paypal.com) Once you have opened an account there, click on "Send Money" and send the appropriate amount to: email@example.com
