The Breakthrough Celebration,

May 15-29, 2007

a Cascade of Peace Events

by Carl Johan Calleman

            We are now rapidly approaching the exact midpoint of the Fifth day of the Galactic Underworld (May 22, 2007 in the Gregorian Calendar), a point in time of a potential profound shift and breakthrough into peace and balance brought by the incoming energy of this Fifth day (For a diagram of the wave movement of the energies of the Galactic Underworld please see the attachment). As is obvious from the web site the Breakthrough Celebration around this significant shift point will occur over an extended period of time, May 15-29, 2007, to allow the aspirations for peace that are now surfacing in a new way to be expressed for more than a single day. There are also practical considerations such as weekends in the modern calendars of the world that must be taken into account to allow for maximal participation. The peak of the peace events will at any rate take place during the days May 19-22. The 19th may be a day of preparation and creation of intentions, followed by May 20 (the World Peace Day), May 21 (the Jerusalem Hug) and May 22 (the World Tree or Medicine Wheel Day). This last day is 5 Ahau (Ajpu) in the Mayan calendar and fire ceremonies will be performed among the Maya to bring peoples of the four directions together in peace.

This cascade of events may be used as a guideline by everyone who wants to focus in concord with the worldwide Breakthrough Celebration. Yet, the idea is not to have a rigid organization of this cascade, but to support creativity everywhere. Having said that it is recommended that those inclined to participate try to gain the relevant information as soon as possible rather than to wait until the last moment to find out what is happening. The purpose of this Breakthrough Celebration is both an end in itself and an exploration of new territory. What many will want to explore is the possibility of manifesting a peaceful external reality by the creation of an inner peaceful state. The scale of these events will, despite many qualifying factors, allow us to test the Hundredth Monkey hypothesis that a high enough number of people focusing on, or actually being, peace may have an effect on the future of the planet. I feel it deserves to be pointed out in this context that the focus of this Breakthrough Celebration is not anti-war, but being in peace, if nothing else because the anti-war intention takes the existence of war for granted. It is by being peace and creating peace in ourselves through any of the many spiritual practices to be used that we can help introduce peace in the collective consciousness of humanity. Thanks to the painstaking work of Joseph Giove , who has co-ordinated much of these efforts, we also have some hopes to find some objective verification of the effects that these meditations may have on the external reality.

I feel by far most of the participants in this cascade of events will take part because they want to contribute to a peaceful future for the planet and turn things in the right direction. Yet, it is not an accident that they are coming together at this very time. These events happen against the energetic background of the divine plan as this may be understood from the Mayan calendar. For the serious student of the different Underworlds of evolution in this calendar system it is obvious that the Fifth day, ruled by the energy of Quetzalcoatl, holds a special Breakthrough quality in any of the Underworlds. The fact that already at this point so many people have pledged to participate in the meditations around the midpoint of this Fifth day in the Galactic Underworld is very telling. Although this Breakthrough Celebration has been prepared for by the Oneness Celebration (June 6-8 2004) the Midlight Meditation (June 1-2, 2005) or the entry point of the Breakthrough Celebration (May 27-28, 2006) this earlier events were of a considerably smaller scale than what that of the midpoint of the Fifth day.

This is not an accident and it has been predicted since long because of the very breakthrough nature of the Fifth day. A great value of the Mayan calendar is that knowledge of it will help people be aware of their relationship to the divine time plan. The particular Fifth day of the Galactic Underworld is conducive to a breakthrough in the balancing of the two hemispheres of the human mind and of the planet, something that by itself may prepare for a quantum jump to oneness and peace. Yet, the way I look upon it, peace or balance will not come automatically in the Galactic Underworld, because in this Underworld human beings are attaining a state of consciousness where we are no longer puppets of the divine plan. We have, in other words, on this level to make a choice, collectively speaking, as to whether we are going to manifest the reality of Oneness and Peace that the divine plan creates the possibility for. There is thus a tremendous value with every person that makes this choice and will work to see it come into fruition.

The closer we come to the fulfillment of the divine creation process late in 2011 the more difficult will predictions be, because at the level of the Galactic Underworld increasingly more will depend on the choices human individuals make. This may sound quite paradoxical, but personally I do not believe in either of the simplistic views (“we totally create our own reality”) or (“everything is pre-determined”). Especially in the present Galactic Underworld the future of the planet depends on an interaction between energies of time that are conducive to a certain reality (as we may learn from the Mayan calendar) and the choices that human beings make and especially the inner reality that they create.

Ii may be argued that external peace (absence of war) is not the most urgent challenge facing humanity at the present time. As was pointed out by Don Alejandro in his recent message environmental concerns may now be more pressing for the survival of the planet. Yet, the peace meditations around the midpoint of the Fifth day is about supporting an inner change and the creation of a new coherent field of consciousness. Hence, it is possible that such a field will bring about positive effects also when it comes to other things that plague our planet. A state of Oneness by itself is about breaking down not only perceived barriers between people, but also between the human beings and nature that ultimately are behind global warming and other threats to the planet. Hence, in my opinion, peace, being peace, is a focus as good as any for this Breakthrough Celebration.

The second half of the Fifth day (May 22 – November 19, 2007) of the Galactic Underworld may be expected to be energetically favorable for a rapid broadening of the desires and manifestation of peace in the world. Needless to say, not everybody will be part of this process and many will resist it. Yet, the parallel especially with the Fifth day of the Planetary Underworld (1913-1932) is natural to make. The first half of this saw a hard resistance to the breakthrough of the modern world with its democracy, a resistance especially manifested in World War I, where the old empires sought to hold on to power. The second half (1923-32), however, was the time when this resistance was flooded by the new collective desires for collective participation in the rule of nations and a new freedom. If we are able today at the midpoint of the Fifth day of the Galactic Underworld to prepare the ground for peace something similar may emerge in our own immediate future. For this to happen we need not only to walk our talk, but actually be our talk of peace of oneness, and if we are we may be part of co-creating with the divine an flooding of peace.

The Mayan Breakthrough Celebration - a Global Process leading into the Quetzalcoatl/Christ energy of the Fifth Day

by Carl Johan Calleman

People often ask the question what, according to the Mayan calendar, will happen in the time ahead. In a sense this is a natural question to ask and in my books I have addressed how the Mayan calendar describes cosmic evolution in all of its aspects from the Big Bang 16.4 billion years ago to the present time. Indeed we may now learn a lot from its patterns. Yet, sometimes when people ask this question it seems they think that the changes that the Mayan calendar describes are happening outside of themselves or the human collective at large. I would say that this is an incomplete understanding.

If there is anything we may learn from the Mayan calendar then it is that it is a strict time plan for the evolution of consciousness and that this plan very much includes ourselves at the present time. The process of evolution of consciousness is now primarily transforming the human beings, and through human beings, our external reality.

In other words; we are the ones we have been waiting for!

We are the ones whose consciousness is undergoing transformation. The Mayan calendar only helps the patterns of this transformation become visible and understandable. As the consciousness of humanity is transformed so is the external world that we are to a large extent creating through our perception of it.

I feel it is very important to grasp these relationships: The transformation of the world in the years ahead happens through the transformation of consciousness of ourselves and the true Mayan calendar is an exact time plan for this. The very idea of asking what will happen emanates from a dualist relationship to the external reality that has been inherited from lower Underworlds (An Underworld is a sine wave movement of consciousness evolution).

As I recently described in an article
we entered the Fourth NIGHT of the Galactic Underworld as of November 29, 2005. As I point out there we may understand some of what this means through parallels with other Underworlds. Essentially, the first half of this Fourth NIGHT is a time for integration of the changes that the preceding Fourth DAY brought. What on an individual level some would typically experience is then that the past catches up with them, and this may especially be true for those for whom the Fourth DAY was a very transformative period. Things we did not have to deal with in the flow of the Fourth DAY may now be knocking on our doors and in we may need to contemplate the directions of our paths. The integrative character of the Fourth NIGHT favors making amends and healing relationships that might have been upset by the influx of the stirring energies of the Fourth DAY. It also seems there are many that in the beginning of this Fourth NIGHT are cleansing and restoring their bodies. This may not be so much about integration as it is a meaningful preparation for the time to come and the onset of the Quetzalcoatl energy of the Fifth DAY. In short, as I described in the above mentioned article, the first half of the Fourth NIGHT is about integrating and preparing for the strong influx of light on the right brain half that is about to enter especially as the Fifth DAY begins on November 24, 2006.

The incoming energy of the Fifth DAY will be much stronger than anything we have previously experienced in the Galactic Underworld. The Fifth DAY is the breakthrough energy that previously, in another Underworld (level of consciousness evolution) brought Christianity, and at yet another Underworld the modern world, into existence. The Mayan calendar describes the alternating energies of the cosmos that transform consciousness and create the world. What we need to do is to learn how to flow with these energies that shape our future and help bring the path towards Oneness to the rest of the world. Thus, we should already be preparing and considering how best to make use of the breakthrough energy of the Fifth DAY. For this to happen we will need to put in a new gear and a suitable name for this gear is the Breakthrough Celebration.

This Breakthrough Celebration is not just a one time event, but a culmination of a global process of transformation of consciousness culminating on May 22, 2007. Thus, although the rhythm of this process may already be set in the heavens its actual manifestation will need to be developed in a co-creative way among all people of the planet that seek to align themselves with the intended end result of divine creation: Oneness in Enlightenment. The Breakthrough Celebration is designed to provide direction, intention and guidance for this process and it will do so for a critical phase, namely the transition to the Fifth DAY of the Galactic Underworld.

What I am suggesting here is for every lightworker, and everyone seeking enlightenment for themselves and the rest of humanity, to participate in a process of globally synchronized prayer, diksha (transference of divine presence) and meditation days that will help lead humanity in the transition to the Fifth DAY of the Galactic Underworld while making maximal use of its incoming energies for balancing, healing and enlightenment.

The Oneness Celebration at the occasion of the Venus Transit (June 6-8, 2004) helped prepare the ground for this by more broadly alerting people to the fact that we are entering the completion phase of the divine plan. The Midlight Meditation (June 1-2, 2005) served to globally synchronize dikshas and meditations.

The Breakthrough Celebration is intended as a sequence of energies that will provide a structure for events and festivals that will allow at least part of the human collective to go much deeper and develop a process towards enlightenment in a synchronized way. It is literally now or never for a collective breakthrough into the experience of Oneness considering what we know about the energies to follow after the Fifth DAY.

I feel it is time to throw out all ideas that the Mayan calendar is about waiting for something to happen in the year 2012. The true Mayan calendar is about a process that we moment by moment may be part of if we so choose and if a sufficiently strong positive desire for experiencing Oneness can be brought forth. For this I encourage an intentional explorative and dynamic process where only the dates are offered only as synchronizing signposts. What we do and who we are during these times are the features of our collective awakening that ushers in the energies that the Mayan calendar describes. For this I feel dikshas will play a very significant role in giving people direct experience of where the cosmic plan is leading us. To have such experiences may be especially valuable considering that there is little reason to expect that the transitions ahead will be smooth or without difficulty for humanity at large.

The initiating date, the take-off for the process of the Breakthrough Celebration, will be the dates May 27-28, 2006, corresponding to the shortly upcoming midpoint energies, 9 Ahau and 10 Imix, of the Fourth NIGHT. In the Sacred Mayan Calendar used for thousands of years, 9 Ahau at this midpoint is a combination of the 9, which symbolizes Quetzalcoatl, and Ahau, which means light or lord. Traditionally Ahau days, or days of light, were such energies for ceremonies among the ancient Maya. We may actually then now catch on to the very same rhythm that will continue until the field of cosmic oneness is established on the day energy of 13 Ahau on October 28, 2011.

Since the process of the Galactic Underworld is about strengthening the Eastern/right brain half aspects of our existence I encourage themes of ³Awakening the World Mother within² or ³Unifying the Divine Father and Mother within² for take-off events for the Breakthrough Celebration on May 27-28, 2006. This is especially so as this Underworld is a phase of cosmic evolution that step by step brings forth the feminine to heal the rift and separation that occurred about 5000 years ago as the National Underworld began.

I recommend that the global diksha community initiate or participate in events and festivals organized for this take-off of the Breakthrough Celebration. In general I recommend that anyone planning for spiritual events in this time to do so with an eye to the Oneness in Light (Ahau) days of the Mayan Calendar. Following this take-off at 9 Ahau and 10 Imix, May 27-28, there is thus a series of recommended Oneness in Light dates that I have listed below. These are also presented in an attachment to this mail and will be posted at my web site pending the creation of the web site Obviously, events of this kind do not happen by themselves and so what I am asking you to consider is to mark your calendars for creating such events. There is no one else to wait for. We are the ones we have been waiting for!

The Breakthrough Celebration
Global World Tree Ceremony

For the global synchronization I recommend that dikshas are performed on these Ahau (Oneness in Light) days at 6.00, 12.00 and/or 18.00 European Central Time,(9 pm (previous night), 3 am and 9 am PST) (12 pm, 9 am and 3 pm EST) and the corresponding times for Asia and Australia.

The purpose of choosing these particular dates is to enhance synchronicity at special energetically suitable days and also, through the direct experience of participation, bring the awareness of the existence of a divine plan that has charted by the Mayan calendar and its currently predominating rhythm, the Galactic Underworld. The dates offered above are however not meant to exclude any activities in between them. The entry into the Fifth day is a process that we have never undertaken before and so it is not in any sense foreseeable what activities that may need to be improvised to enhance the process.

To perform prayers, dikshas and meditations globally synchronized on these Ahau (Oneness in Light) days will serve to synchronize the global spiritual community with the divine process of creation. I call especially on the global diksha community to help bring in the divine presence in this process that this movement is all about in this phase of humanity¹s evolution. The Fifth DAY may very well lead to the very ability to give diksha being passed on from one individual to another especially if the Breakthrough Celebration generates the necessary flow. Yet, I feel there are many other practices including field transforming techniques that will contribute significantly in the process towards Oneness. In fact, I am convinced that some of these innovative phenomena have not yet seen the light of the day but are about to do so during the period covered by the Breakthrough Celebration. To accommodate and support such creativity I feel the process should be approached in a spirit of mutual sharing that fosters the necessary cross-fertilization between ideas and spiritual practices.

I believe that the dates above should be approached with an attitude of service also to the many other movements and organizations that may happen to organize events and festivals on these dates. There is every reason to continue global diksha and meditation events also in later phases of the Galactic Underworld at Ahau (Oneness in Light) days, which are the most conducive to enlightenment. The very purpose of the Breakthrough Celebration is to serve a global breakthrough into experiencing the divine presence on a continuing basis. Part of its purpose is also a breakthrough into experiencing the Mayan calendar, that is to say the divine time plan, and its rhythm. This by itself will turn out to be invaluable for providing guidance and hope for humanity in some of the more difficult energies it will go through until the  cosmic field of Oneness stabilizes in the heavens on October 28, 2011.
