Mount Shasta located in Northern California is a destination for mystics, gurus, sages and curious people from all over the world. Unexplained stories are endless. This enormous mountain is endeared by all who come to visit or live near her.
This dormant volcano is not part of any mountain range. She's uniquely her own mountain in many ways. With a summit of 14,125 feet above sea level, Shasta is the second highest peak in the Cascade Mountain range. Her slopes rise abruptly nearly 10,000 feet above the surrounding landscape.
Those who live in Mount Shasta the small town located on the base of the mountain, will tell you stories of encounters with Lemurians, the hidden city of Telos, Saint Germain, and alien landings. But, by far they sense a certain special feeling that comes with being in the presence of Mount Shasta's vital energy or vortex.
Our ancient ancestors knew a vortex or a gathering place of the earth's energy was sacred. This special mountain has such a vortex. Ancient cultures considered these vortexes, portals to a higher dimension of consciousness.
If someone was near a vortex it activated and energized their etheric or energetic bodies making it possible for some to become aware of what mystics have discovered...our existence is multi-dimensional. Mount Shasta as well as Sedona, Arizona are vortexes the average person is able to sense.
Poet Joaquin Miller describes Shasta like this, "Lonely as God, and white as a winter moon, Mount Shasta starts up sudden and solitary from the heart of the great black forests of Northern California."
When I came to live in Mount Shasta, I drove across country to live there. Her little cousin Black Butte came into view. Again, it rises abruptly out of no where, and is shaped like a giant pyramid rising almost 4,000 feet from the highway. The mystery continues...some say Black Butte is actually an enormous crystal that someday will be exposed.
Native American Indians in the area profess that the mountain is the home of the spirit chief Skell who descended from heaven to the mountain's summit.
Our bodies mirror the earth, in fact the entire universe
The earth experiences these energy centers as different levels of consciousness, and so do our own bodies. There are seven main energy centers called chakras in our bodies, and also seven in the world. Below are the seven key earth chakras in order, and where their likeness is located in the human body:
As you can see, Mount Shasta holds the position as the first, root or base chakra of the world. Since moving to Mount Shasta, I can tell you from my own experience, the mountain's vortex pulls on me by invisible strings.
I could sense it from the first time I noticed Mount Shasta from fifty miles away coming south on US 5. Even though I had never been here before, I knew it had to be the mountain. I couldn't take my eyes off of her, and stole glances whenever traffic permitted.
When I skied or hiked Mount Shasta a lightness and connectedness would come over me. I almost expected to see a mystical being walking towards me from behind a giant movable rock. A feeling of overwhelming peace enveloped me when I went to the head waters of the Sacramento River located at the base of Shasta and drank of her pure unimprinted water. This truly is a very special place.
Many are drawn to the mountain and have no idea why.
This scenario fits my story to a tee. A huge sigh of relief left my lips, when I heard that others came here for the same reason. Some considered my escape to Mount Shasta crazy, in fact my family questioned my motives.
Just before winter, I drove 3,000 miles to Mount Shasta, alone, without knowing why I had to come here. With unwavering trust in my higher self alone, I came to Northern California, a place I had never seen before, with only what I could pack in my car.
I knew if I didn't answer the persistent whispers from Mount Shasta I would always wonder what it would have been like if I had only had the gonads to do it. The intensity of the call was too great...I never looked back. With every mile, the pull became stronger to keep on going.
The urge to go to the unknown was much greater than the fear of leaving what I knew. I fought Shasta for a year before I no longer could deny her. Somehow I knew I would never return to live on Lake Huron again. From the first time I set my eyes on Mount Shasta, I knew I was in for an interesting ride.
When asked the common question, "What brought you to Mount Shasta?" At first I'd pause and say, "I don't really know, I just know I'm supposed to be here." As time went by, my answer became, "The mountain called me." The response was a knowing smile from the locals, because in many cases it was their story too.
Shasta had a pulling affect on my own energy field. Things I had not thought about in decades were exposed and brought into the front of my mind full force. Old hurts and negative happenings flooded into my mind with a much greater level of significance and clarity. It was like the mountain was going to purge all that I had not dealt with from my past.
First it had to be felt in order to know it so I it could be healed. It made room for new things to come into my life. Byron Katie is a wonderful resource for taking responsibility and control of your life.
It was as though the mountain was saying, "Look at your life! What do you want?"
When I told a few Mount Shasta local friends, they just nodded and said, "The mountain has a way of getting in your face, and MAKING you question your values and your life." As painful as this exposure can be, it's also very healing. Once I accepted I was being shown myself for my higher good, I was ready to heal and forgive my past so it would finally be released and forgotten for good. Everything goes in a circle and comes right back to its source...in this case me.
Many thought that the little town of Mount Shasta would be inundated before the end of 2012. In fact the forest service was preparing sensitive areas for this onslaught of seekers. It never happened as they predicted. The Mayan Great Cycle ended on December 21, 2012, without much fanfare, as it should. The changes in great ages started a long time ago, and its effects will go on for years to come till the shift is complete to the new values of the present age.
Even in the 30s the channels of the I AM books knew great changes were coming.
"Many changes were shown to take place in the next seventy years. These affected Europe, Asia, India, North and South America, and revealed to us that regardless of all appearances at the present time, the sinister force attempting to create chaos and destruction throughout the world will be completely destroyed. When that is accomplished, the mass of humanity will turn to the "Great God Presence" within each heart and also governing the Universe." Unveiled Mysteries, Godfre Ray King.
The earth changes we're experiencing are caused by humanity, our values and the way we think as a whole.
YouTube videos like Zeitgeist and Esoteric Agenda tell us that the sinister Federal Reserve Board and the World Bank are the causes of scarcity, starvation, wars, assassinations, incarcerations, everything negative in our lives.
They are simply the mirrors or reflections of the way humanity feels within and sees itself. These problems existed long before these entities came into being. Our belief in scarcity makes it possible for these institutions to capitalize at our expense. When we realize our divinity and take back our power, all negativity will naturally fall away. And, so will those institutions.
Mount Shasta has a way of putting your worst traits in your face.
I now look at words or deeds that trigger me...differently. I realize that it couldn't be in my life if it wasn't in me. It's at this point I'm ready to own it and heal it. The first thing I ask now is, "What is this person or situation trying to show me about myself?"
All of us have negative memories. These negative words, events, or feelings don't go away just because we stuff them and say they don't matter. They don't go away because we don't want to look at them either. Energies like Mount Shasta's vortex make us look at them. They just keep coming back into our minds over and over again...like a tape recorded message begging to be healed. Why?
"If human beings could see their own thoughts, feelings, and words go out into the atmosphere upon the ethers, gather and gather more of their kind and return, they would not only be amazed at what they give birth to, but would scream for deliverance, and if for no other reason than to blot such creation out of mind, they would with full determination face their own Divinity and enter into It. THOUGHTS AND FEELINGS ARE LIVING, PULSATING THINGS. The individual who knows that will use his wisdom and control himself accordingly." Unveiled Mysteries, Godfre Ray King
The Mount Shasta and Lemurian connection
My curiosity has drove me to discover why I'm here. I've read many I AM books, and other Mount Shasta specific books. But, the most important verification I've had is in my own personal experiences since I took up residency.
It's said the mountain is calling home all who started their first earthly experience in her presence. These unsuspecting people are being drawn here from all over the world. I've met people from Europe, and Asia, especially from England who feel compelled to come to the mountain for unknown reasons.
This entire area was once part of Lemuria and Atlantis according to popular books. Thousands of years ago, before recorded history, a highly advanced society lived in what we call California.
"The Garden of Eden upon this planet was located originally right in your own beloved United States of America, for it is here that God's own individualization first came forth, and here only is the Doorway back into Perfection." Step By Step We Climb, I AM Channeled Book
Where Mount Shasta is located is said to be the far eastern border of this lost culture. Most of the land was swallowed up by the ocean when an ancient catastrophe occurred possibly around 9,500 BC. Some believe this could have been the decimation of Atlantis and Lemuria.
Others say the Lemurians left, retreated underground, and still live deep inside the mountain in the subterranean city of Telos possibly on another dimension. They emerge at times when someone is in need of help, or if a person gets too close to one of their entrances to the hidden city.
Some have even told stories of being inside of their beautiful city of gold and jewels. The Telos people have been described as very tall, fair skinned, gentle looking people dressed in unique clothing.
A possible pole shift, accompanied by a lithosphere and earth crust realignment occurred about the time when the Lemurians were said to have disappeared. The horrific story of "the day the earth almost died," was verbally handed down by our ancient ancestors from one generation to the next.
Ancient storytellers talked about how the earth's crust literally buckled, reshaping itself to look like a turtles ridged back. The waters of the planet boiled, massive earthquakes and volcanic eruptions decimated the earth.
In the Arctic, scientist have recently verified the possibility of a pole shift at this time when they discovered the mass extinction of giant mammals, exposed by global warming. To give you an idea of how fast the change occurred, many of the animals still had grass in their mouths when they were frozen on the spot, by a possible sudden climate change.
The unusual layered lenticular or spherical clouds that form over Mount Shasta are said to shield the space ships that come here and enter the mountain through secret hidden entrances.
Believers say living through our I AM Presence or God essence can heal the ills of the earth
The slopes of Mount Shasta are also considered the meeting place by many with the Ascended Master, Saint Germain. Godfrey Ray King is said to have gained his freedom right here with the help of Saint Germain in the 1930s. The city of Shasta houses the I AM Reading Center providing channeled reading material, a meditation room, CD's and more. Ths is the birth place of the I AM movement.
"Every one of God's children who WILLS God acknowledge, and accepts the Presence of the One Mighty anchored Within his heart and brain, and feels that Truth deeply many times a day, realizing and knowing God fills his mind and body so full of Light there is no room for anything else, he can be free...if his attention be fixed firmly with determination on this Eternal Truth, no height of attainment is too great for him to reach." Unveiled Mysteries, Godfre Ray King
Over time I came closer to understanding why I was called to Mount Shasta from the Great Lakes region. Yes the mountain and area are spectacular, and the people wonderful. But, there's more to it. Even if you can't feel the vortex energy. Or, don't have a mystical experience...Mount Shasta is still a memorable place.
Most people don't understand why they feel different in her presence...but the locals do. They contend that when they leave the Mount Shasta area even for a day, they can feel the difference its peace affords them when they return.
It was believed when the Great Cycle change came at the end of 2012, the residence of the City of Telos located inside the mountain, we supposed to come forth to help us with the physical and spiritual transitions.
Believe only what feels right to you...in your heart. No one is your teacher, or knows what's best for you...except your own higher self.
Your inner self, knows what's best for you...trust and accept what comes your way. Your happiness depends on being one with the moment, and accepting that whatever comes your way is what you need right now.
Let's close with a poem about Mount Shasta from the book Unveiled Mysteries written by Godfre Ray King:
Shasta! O Mount Shasta! What Secrets do you hide, What dwells within that Heart of Yours, What Light does There abide?
Beneath your snowy peaks so bright What Blessings do you hold, What Knowledge do you guard so well From those who seek to bold?
I think I hear you speak to me From your pure heights above. I feel and hear your answer now; "There's just one way - through Love!"
"To him who knows that 'Presence' well And lives It, too, beside, My Secrets are an open book, From him I've naught to hide.
"Learn well that Golden Key of Life, It opens every lock; With It you may fling wide my Door, For Love ne'er needs to knock.
"O sons of Earth who seek more Light, Learn first Love's Great Command! Pour out Its Healing Golden Streams, And in my Heart you'll stand."
