                 An article on the New Earth Awakening

Zacciah Blackburn, PhD



  The Earth is awakening, and entering a new phase, a new resonance, a higher vibrational state.  This resonance can highlight all thoughts and actions not in alignment with the new paradigm.  They are often perceived as a greater level of chaos and distress in our own emotional and mental bodies, in all that we are experiencing personally, and seeing societally around us, in the growing phenomena of weather and earth changes, etc.  As the Earth is enlivening, she, also, is responding to our prayers, out attitudes & beliefs, our own higher states of being.  Everything that we do to prepare ourselves for this New Earth, for our own evolution as spiritual beings, impacts her, and all of us, in ways we may not imagine.  We each are part of this.  She, as a living entity, is an often forgotten part of this New Awakening, and our collective creating of the New Reality.  She is asking for our Alliance.

The more we do to clarify our own states of being, and to engage with Her in relationship, as a living being, as well as all living things, the more we experience the magic and mysteries coming alive as every day realities during this new time.  We each are called to awaken, and do our part.  We send our blessings to you, in your own path of discovery and evolution!

I have been reporting many of these mysteries to you regularly.  And, we are about to embark in our primary Earth practice for this year (2012), The Tree of Life, where many mysteries unfold.  Many of you are asking if there are ways you can join from your own homes, and those of you who wish to, can do so. 

It would be complicated to explain the entire practice, or even many of the segments.  However, I have given many practices through these newsletters, from the recent solar practices, to practices with water, etc, which can be used.  Our recent Resting in Nature practice is especially useful.

Each day we will be entering natural power sites, special earth vortexes, and sacred sites, such as the ancient stone chambers, and the 3 mountains and 3 lakes which create a perfect star tetrahedron, in sacred union of masculine and feminine energies of the Earth and Sky.  Through the natural energies involved, and the work we engage in, in relation to the energies of this sacred field of light,


this becomes a living prayer wheel, in which we seed our prayers with our collective potential and alliance with master teachers of the celestial and ancestral worlds who collaborate with, and guide us in this work.

It is profound work.

To understand more of the practice,

See The Tree of Life.  It links many articles which you can read more thoroughly about this, also.

TO JOIN IN THE WORK from home.

 We recommend you read the preparatory letter I have sent to the actual participants in the work, to give you an idea of how you might, also, prepare to assist from afar.

If you have not, I strongly suggest you read the article in our last newsletter with a practice for   Resting in Nature. (or see right side bar.)

Learn the practice.

View the itinerary on our Tree of Life program, and look for pieces you wish to join in.

Each day is powerful.Here are a few examples and possibilities:

  • The Tree of Life is based on the 3 Hearts practice, though more complex in understanding how we become a column of living energy interconnecting the Three Worlds, Above, Below, and Here.   We are likely to incorporate it in the Crystal Cathedral (Library of Knowledge) stone chamber on Monday, Aug 12, mid morning.  Those who know it can join in, or learn it here.
  • The Lion's Gate practice, Thursday, Aug 16, mid morning, is a special time to align with the wisdom of the Star Elders and other celestial allies who are guiding this work. 

    On Saturday, Aug 18, late morning, we'll be at the Starseed/DreamLodge stone chamber, seeding these energies & prayers into the earth.

To join with us either of these times, find a safe, powerful place in nature, or enter a quiet meditative state in your own room, imagining yourself in such a powerful site.

The Lion's Gate is a powerful natural vortex with primary earth energy (dragon) currents conjoining in it, on top of a high mountain, with extraordinary stone outcroppings.  If you can equate a spot near you, that has high and pristine energy, enter the "Resting" practice, coming into communion with the energies of the place, deeply aligning with the bodies of Stone, then ask for your own allies and teachers to come and assist you, to align with the highest, more clear and pure energies you are able, to send into the earth with your own clear intention.  Again, the actual practices are far too complex to share here, and have the foundation of our entire week of work to build upon their understanding.  Yet, your own clear and pure thoughts and intentions are of great importance, value, and power.  Use them.  Trust in them.



Each day on the itinerary in which we are working with water, we will cleanse in the body of water, with the intent of coming into deeper communion with its power to cleanse, heal, nurture, as well as to make offerings to the waters, and use the body of water to journey into the ancestral lands, as indigenous people do throughout the world. 

Again, the actual practices are too complicated to share here, but your pure intent and willingness to join will align you with beneficial results.



One beautiful Peruvian water practice we use is with a clear running stream or river.  We turn up river and receive the blessings of all of those who have gone before us;  all of those on the path, our own teachers and healers, all allies, all master teachers and ascended ones of our own lineages, etc.  We receive those fully into our body.We then turn downstream and send our pure blessings to all who are yet to come:  all of those not yet so far along the path, all of those not on the path at all, all of those who do not even know there is a path to follow, all of those not yet born.This is a powerful and evocative practice, based upon how willing you are to enter the living truth, that there are those in the other worlds, constantly sending their blessings to you.  And, to live in balance and reciprocity, it behooves us to send our blessings on to others.

We honor those of you who wish to join with us.There certainly are openings, if you wish to literally join with us.  But, to unite in prayer and ceremony at any time during the practice, can be so potent; we welcome you.  It is of great benefit to do this in your own home lands.The Earth asks each of us.  The Indigenous Prophecy Keepers tell us it is, literally, when enough of us learn to enter Living Relations with the Earth, that it will be the catalyst to Birth The NEW EARTH.

I pray these notations serve enough that you can walk in the spirit of the work, and join from your own home lands.If not, join with us sometime in the practices them selves.  They are most enriching and rewarding.We have done these practices all over the planet.

I can assure you, the Earth is alive, and responds readily to simple prayer and intention.

You don't have to be a master teacher or practitioner to earnestly, honestly, sincerely, speak to the Earth and her allies, with your heartfelt gratitude and kind wishes, for the benefit of all.I send you my joy and good wishes in your own evolution and methods of practice.I send many blessings.

Many blessings to each of you in your lives and work!

Our practices embody these principals of sound and consciousness.
We welcome you to ask about our work and practices which might benefit you.

Our School of Sound Healing teaches these practices.  Watch for our next article on the art of Sacred Sound, and how to attune to heightened states of consciousness, embrace, embody and voice them.
Our Egyptian practices, and other esoteric programs, embody these principals, such as our upcoming Horus and Golden Body Practices.
And, they are part of our Earth Energies classes.


See our next program in the series of Egyptian Studies at:
The Illumination of Consciousness Series:  Egyptian Mysteries & other Esoteric Studies

The many realms of Zacciah's trainings into the Illumination of Consciousness, including the Egyptian Mysteries, the Earth Mysteries, with  Indigenous trainings, and other program formats, and the Professional Sound Healers Trainings, will provide ever more revealing journeys in both professional explorations and more personal transformational opportunities, for those wishing to pursue the Mystery as revealed through use of our own awareness, guided exercises, esoteric energy practices, and Sacred Sound Initiations.
