a different band of awareness

The new seers say that since the exact position of the assemblage point is an arbitrary position chosen for us by our ancestors, it can move with a relatively small effort; once it moves, it forces new alignments of emanations, thus new perceptions…once that assemblage point moves beyond a certain limit, it can assemble worlds entirely different from the world we know.”~ The Fire from Within

In this context and in many spiritual contexts, ancestor implies those who had come before us to predominantly ensure the preservation of knowledge and the earth. Has anyone ever considered that there are other ancestors, different ones than the ones that we have honored and revered as wisdom keepers?

About a month ago in our sweat lodge, El Cuervo was talking about creator beings to the group. I was listening to these familiar stories when suddenly, some spirit or what I like to refer to as the Voice of Seeing said, “For many thousands of years humanity has aligned itself with the ancestors of the earth, the energies of the old ones. The time has come to align with different ancestors. There are others and they have much to teach.” And then the voice was gone.

I sat through the rest of the ceremony considering this message, wondering what it could mean. It felt as though I had aligned with something new and I recalled that in The Fire from Within don Juan states, When a moment of alignment takes place, sentient beings use that alignment in a limited way and perceive their world. Warriors can use that alignment either to perceive, like everyone else, or as a boost that allows them to enter unimaginable worlds. Did I receive a boost from the earth to enter into another dimension capable of perceiving the unknown? He (don Juan) explained that the earth’s boost is the force of alignment of only the amber emanations, it is a boost that heightens awareness to unthinkable degrees. To the new seers it is a blast of unlimited consciousness, which they call total freedom.

I wonder if, while in that lodge, the earth had provided me with an opportunity to align with the energy of different ancestors and I wonder what I will learn. And then I wonder if they are ancestors of this earth or of another dimension upon this earth or maybe of another part of the cosmos? The truth is that I don’t know and I haven’t any answers at the moment. I’ve been thinking about it on and off for the past few weeks. A different group of ancestors seems completely viable to me and I am excited to explore this message and find out what awareness, knowledge, and wisdom they have to share.

Don Juan posits that when the glow of awareness touches man’s emanations that are untouched by awareness, they can become active and aligned with the corresponding emanations at large. Once that happens the unknown is perceived and becomes the known. Is that what happened? Did my assemblage point shift enough to perceive the unknowable?

As human beings we perceive when the emanations inside of us align with the energetic emanations of the earth and/or the cosmos. Aligning our emanations with external emanations is the gateway into other bands of awareness and the earth’s boost is what makes it possible for us to perceive other realities, realms, or worlds.

Has everyone’s assemblage point been fixated upon the same ancestors for centuries? Are there other ancestors that predate the ancestors we have become accustomed to; that exist in a parallel reality? Just like in my book when I speak about how humanity energizes very specific lines and because of all the energy that fuels them, they wind up becoming the dominant paradigm. Have we all energized the same ancestral line(s), doing the same things over and over again, each repeating a pattern in the same albeit unique way?

I plan is to go and sit in silence upon the earth and hopefully receive another message from these other ancestors that I’ve been informed of. My interest is piqued and it seems as though there may be something quite remarkable on the verge of being revealed. A new story would be truly awesome beyond the history that only repeats itself.

Keep dancing!

  1. Graham Hancock has been bringing forth many hidden and lost stories of an ancient races not connected to ours and possibly even more advanced than ours in many ways. Maybe it is time to travel along avenues of awareness and reawaken a hidden past, a past that is not written by the current winners of the last 10,000 years of taker mentality. I think you are on to something here.


    • Maybe Robert Plant was onto something in the song Kashmir:

      Oh let the sun beat down upon my face, stars to fill my dream,
      I am a traveler of both time and space, to be where I have been,
      To sit with elders of the gentle race, this world has seldom seen,
      They talk of days for which they sit and wait and all will be revealed…


  2. My anthropology professor used to gather us together at night, all wearing masks of our individual making. He said to us, that we are the ancestors. those were magical times. I am reminded of an adventurer who took Yage once, and the shaman who was guiding him asked what he saw. He said he saw whale like beings who told him secrets. The shaman said, oh yeah those guys, they say those things to everyone, but they don’t know what they are talking about. None the less, the shaman indicated that there were other beings who could tell one many wonderful and interesting things. Some of the ancestors are now standing up at Standing Rock.


    • I am pondering Carlos Castaneda’s statement about moving the fixation of the assemblage point of the earth. The same stories take up all the space without leaving room for anything new to enter in.


  3. Been thinking about this thread for a while. Time has rooms, sort of like a house has rooms. If we are in the living room and turn on say the TV and then we go into the bedroom and close the door, the living room is no longer in sight. But, we can hear the TV coming through the walls the door. Time is something like that. Long time ago, some people began to “tame” various plants and animals. To sync in with the vibe of oh say corn, and engage in a mutual dance of convergence. That was in a kind of room of time. But the sound of that effort still lives in the fruits of today. Every time we sit down to a meal, there are the loving intentions made manifest of all those who labored and loved in that other time. Of course also, all those who labor to bring us our food today, and most especially those who have kept the accomplishments of the distant unknown ancestors alive through the thousands of intervening years. Somehow to me, this is a way of seeing that those ancient rooms in time are still sending sounds through the walls to us today. That in fact, those times still exist, only in a way that we can’t see them. Not in a different space, just in a different time, the ancestors continue to be because time is just a way of ordering and arranging events which are happening in eternity.
