Transforming Consciousness

By Judith Pennington

Back in the 1930s, the late great psychic diagnostician Edgar Cayce said, “Thoughts are things – crimes or miracles in their
own right.” The eyes of Cayce’s psychic soul, seeing everything as energy, readily perceived that our thoughts, emotions,
attitudes and beliefs determine from life to life who we are, how we interpret events, and the reality in which we find

Predicting the self-induced turmoil of this era, Cayce understood that it is useless to judge or fear anything. What
looks like a meltdown of the U.S. economy, weather and politics could be (and is) progressive change. Every event brings
evolutionary change, both in our personal lives and the course of human history. Sometimes events look dark, as with China’s
conquest of Tibet and Al Gore’s loss of the presidency in year 2000. Yet these brought to the world the Dalai Lama’s meditative
perspectives and Al Gore’s insights on global warming.

What transforms consciousness is destiny, spun forth from the personal and collective into the light-filled ocean of spirit,
which clothes ideas with atomic particles of matter and form. This exchange between the spirit and materiality is always
taking place, but some points in time are more auspicious than others.

Today we find ourselves at just such a pivotal moment—a paradigm shift—in the history of humankind.

The Quantum Sea

Cayce was ahead of the quantum wave, whose pioneering physicists now support his contention that our thoughts and feelings
configure subatomic packets of light (quanta) into personal and collective realities. I perceive three resonant levels of
quantum reality:

1) While each person’s beliefs and expectations create his/her own spheres of existence, 2) the beliefs and expectations in
humanity’s collective unconscious are magnetically encoded in a high-speed web of light strung in multiple dimensions inside and
above people and the earth.

3) The third dimension is the pulsating, quantum sea of spirit called “life force” or God. This spiritual reality composes the
rhythmic music of the universe played by nature and the astrological patterns wheeling through the sky. Both emit a
rich, complex set of frequencies, or pitches, reverberating with new, creative possibilities for healing, change and

These astrological influences emanate their psychospiritual energies into the earth’s magnetic field to present choices and
opportunities that evolve us toward the higher good. But sometimes these powerful cosmic forces meet resistance that
causes turbulence. This is exactly what we are experiencing now.

Zeitgeist: The Saturn-Uranus Opposition

Virginia Beach astrologer Raye Mathis describes these astrological influences in the September-October 2008 issue of
“Venture Inward,” the international magazine published by Edgar Cayce’s Association for Research and Enlightenment
(  Between November 4, 2008 (by no accident, voting day in the U.S. presidential election) and July 26, 2010, several
oppositions of Saturn and Uranus will arouse strongly polarized energies. Saturn, the planet of change, represents the status
quo’s conservative forces of safety and security, while Uranus brings in the energies of bold, dynamic and youthful leadership,
as in the socio-political upheaval of the 1960s.

According to Cayce, when these two extremely different energies oppose each other, everything from business relations and personal relationships to financial conditions goes awry.

Sound familiar?

Here is the zeitgeist, or spirit, of these times. Conservative security versus bold, youthful and dynamic change are
personified in America’s presidential candidates, their vice-presidential nominees, and the two major political parties.
These oppositional energies are global, but they are especially strong in the United States because of the energetic “charge”
generated by the nation’s high-powered military and economic forces.

Choices and Challenges for Evolutionaries

At this moment in time, people across the planet face a stark choice. We must decide whether to boldly walk into a new future
led by bright, young creative minds or whether to stick with the status quo. Change is never easy, and most people avoid it. Yet
here it is and only one question matters: Is the status quo in line with your deepest-held values?

Rejecting the status quo always creates turmoil. The old guard, entrenched in outworn patterns, attempts to win by sowing fear
in people’s hearts. Many people close up and rely on others to make their choices. But eventually, the mirror of life reveals
the most illumined paths into the future and people walk down them.

Every heart, mind and soul must stay calm enough to make wise, inspired choices. Changing conditions may surge like tidal
waves, but the peaceful heart and soul will stay afloat on this heaving sea of energy, which beckons us into a brave new age.

The energies flowing in from the Saturn-Uranus opposition and the Age of Aquarius present us with unprecedented opportunities
for self-growth, spiritual illumination and planetary transformation. We meet these extraordinary times with
everything in place to effect positive change. Science and spirituality have merged in the new physics to show us the way.

The Global Coherence Initiative

The HeartMath Institute, drawing on 15 years of scientific research, is now moving to effect a global shift in planetary
awareness. Everyone is invited to participate in this exciting effort.

The goal of the Global Coherence Initiative is to teach people to evoke body-mind harmony via the emWave, a small, hand-held
biofeedback device, and to transmit that peaceful coherence into the earth’s electromagnetic field, the protective ionosphere, to
transform consciousness.

HeartMath’s research initially focused on how stress affects the heart, brain and body and how, in turn, human consciousness
influences the earth’s magnetic field. Changes in the earth’s magnetic field are now scientifically linked to brain and
nervous system changes, human performance, ESP, nutrient synthesis in plants and algae, traffic violations and accidents,
human mortality from heart attacks and strokes, and the incidence of depression and suicide.

These findings tell us something extraordinary. What we feel, the earth experiences; what the earth experiences, we feel.

Researchers saw clear evidence of this on Sept. 11, 2001, when terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City and
the U.S. Pentagon in Washington D.C. registered a global field effect four to five hours before the attacks. On an unconscious
level, the collective intuition of people across the world impacted a worldwide network of random number generators
monitored by the Global Consciousness Project. The stress wave also spiked monitors in two space weather satellites at the time
of the attacks and for a period thereafter.

A Global Wave

Given this interconnectivity, the Global Coherence Initiative seeks people willing to help create a positive emotional wave
that will create a global coherence wave.

On the drawing board is a Global Coherence Monitoring System (GCMS) consisting of more than 100 monitors strung out across
the planet to measure the effect of the earth’s magnetic field on people. The monitors will also measure changes in the
electromagnetic field to predict earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and other planetary events. The two chief researchers predicted
weeks in advance the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens and other seismic activity.

Most importantly, the monitors will measure in real-time the impact of the Global Coherence Initiative. While the GCMS raises
$5 million to fund the remote monitoring sites and supply emWaves to poorer populations, emWave users are already
participating in synchronized coherence events.

This plan to pour coherent light into the field to restore harmony to people and the earth is happening just when we need
it most. By no accident, it comes just as we awaken to our enormous inner resources and co-creative potential—with a lot of
help from our friends.

Light Up the Planet

Sign up at to join this effort to transform consciousness. Once you have purchased your emWave, enter your
location on the Community Map. Members in 46 countries are represented on this map, which shows them as owners of emWaves
and reflects in color their self-described state of emotional well-being.

According to HeartMath, when you use a Tracker during synchronized events, this information is uplinked to satellite
so that everyone can see everyone else and how they are feeling. The Trackers will be used in experiments once the GCMS is up and

It’s hard to imagine a better way than this to serve self and the world. Plugging into the field in this positive,
constructive way will prove once and for all, to each and every one of us, that nothing is more powerful than the Light of love.

This time of transition gives a magnificent gift. We are learning about our oneness with each other and with all things.
Understanding this connects us with a world of people who want to surf the waves of peace and harmony together.
