UNDERSTANDING THE SHIFT - Part 3
THE GREAT COSMIC CYCLE
by Dennis Gaumond
came up with the words 'catastrophe' and 'disaster', both of which contain the
root 'astre'(star), knew that cataclysms here on this planet are directly
related to our position relative to the stars. Earth is subject to many
different cycles, often having to do with its orbits through the cosmos. This
segment deals with the notion that our planet is moving through the cosmos
according to periodical cycles, and that our position in the cosmos has been
and continues to be a key factor triggering earth-changes.
Earth is subject to many different cosmic cycles. Different positions relative
to other cosmic bodies expose us to different strengths of electro-magnetic and
gravitational force. Some positions within these cycles cause the planet to
come in contact with an increased amount of energy radiation, some positions
with less. The amount of energy, as well as the frequency of the energy with
which we interact, is a major factor affecting many aspects of life on Earth.
Energy from different sources in the cosmos interacts with our consciousness
here on Earth. This is the same basic notion that underlies the practice of
astrology, which seeks to identify certain predispositions in one's character
based on the position of the planet at the time of that individual's birth.
Different energies coming in from different cosmic bodies have been said to
have their own unique qualities, which somehow imprint upon the newborn
personality. These different energies are said to affect us in different ways.
are several different cycles that affect life here on Earth, some small and
less significant and some greater, with greater significance. Probably the most
important of these is one that has come to be called the precessional or
great cosmic cycle. The ancient societies were well aware of this cycle.
It is approximately 26,000 years in length. In other words, circumstances here
on the planet change according to this cyclical pattern, taking 26,000 years to
complete (actually 25,920). Different 'ages' within this cycle have different
energies, different qualities. If we divide 25,920 by twelve, we get the twelve
signs of the zodiac; twelve ages, each lasting 2,160 years. We are said to be
currently at the end of the Piscean age, about to enter the age of Aquarius.
is said that twice in every 26,000 year cycle we are exposed to an increased
amount of energy radiation, an accelerated frequency of vibration, which
effects our tectonic plates and volcanic activity, climate, magnetic field and
other things. It also affects our consciousness. Earth-changes of varying
intensities are said to have taken place roughly every 13,000 years, at which
time we are 'pre-disposed' to cataclysm.
our universe cosmic bodies are in constant motion, revolving around other bodies
that have greater gravitational pull. Just as the moon revolves around the
earth and the earth around the sun, so does our entire solar system revolve
elliptically around an enormous source of gravity, which we'll call the
Galactic Center. Our planet's position in the galaxy changes from year to year.
It would take 25,920 years before the planet will be in the same position,
relative to the rest of the cosmos, as it is right now.
During this cycle, as our
solar system revolves around the Galactic Center, there are times when our
position is such that we are exposed to increased amounts of energy radiation.
Twice in every 26,000 year period we are closer to this center due to the
elliptical shape of the orbit. We are thus exposed to more energy, to higher
frequencies, than when we are far from it. The life forms on the planet tend to
entrain, to resonate in synch with whatever new frequency the planet is
Thus, as the planetary
frequency increases, the frequency of our collective consciousness also tends
to increase. Because our consciousness is interacting with more energy, we
become more 'enlightened' or 'awakened' during this period. The higher
vibratory rate also tends to 'shake' the planet, causing many changes in the
patterns and 'behavior' of the planet. For the other half of the cycle we move
away from the energy source and thus fall 'asleep'. At these times the planet
is denser - more stable. In other words, every 13,000 years, the planet is
exposed to a greater energy that physically destabilizes it and creates an
opportunity for great change.
earth-changes, including the 'Great Flood', are said to have occurred 13,000
years ago. The Wisconsin ice age came to an end at that time. Many animals,
such as mammoths, sabre tooth cats and the like went extinct at that time. We
are said to be, once again, on the verge of great change, a new era. We are
about to enter the 'Age of Aquarius'. We are entering that part of the cycle
that brings higher frequencies. These new circumstances bring great
opportunities for us to make enormous advances in our healing, in our
evolution. They may also bring some degree of cataclysm. However, some
information is saying that this particular opportunity is different than the
other '13,000 year opportunities'. Some say that, unlike other great
transitions in the past, the planet is about to vibrate its way into the fourth
realm, into Christ-consciousness, taking many of its inhabitants with it. This
is what is referred to as the 'Big Shift'.
