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
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
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
(www.edgarcayce.org). 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.
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
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
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
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
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
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.

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.
