Note: This information was first posted and channeled by James Tyberonn in 2007, but if has great relevance in this NOW moment.
The Crystalline Grid is the energetic lattice that covers our planet. It reflects and amplifies our ascending levels of consciousness. It is a crystalline ‘light’ matrix that was anchored in 1992, five years after the harmonic convergence. Although in place and functional, its total activation will involve 12 phases, with full resonant vibratory rate achieved on the 12-12-12 …December 12, 2012.The ‘triple’ dates ( 01-01-01 thru 12-12-12) that occur uniquely for the next 12 years each carry numeric light codes that open & activate each of the 12 major pentacle facets of this amazing template.
Visualize the grid as a geodesic sphere, of pentagons and triangles, sparkling as a faceted, brilliant diamond. It is a seed crystal of new form, the double penta-dodecahedron. Its time has arrived, merkaba of Earthstar. The double penta dodecahedron has 144 facets, the number of Christ ascension. Each dodecahedron has 12 major pentacles with 60 facets, add the 12 truncated pentagons for 72, and double this for 144 !
The concept of planetary grids is not a new one. Plato theorized the concept as did the ancient Egyptians, Mayans and Hopi Indians. In a sense, grids are the template, the window ‘program’, if you will, that allows all life to accelerate in the graduated light format that is called the ascension.
If you will, the crystalline Ascension Grid, is ‘Windows 2012’ , and indeed, it is quite necessary for our ascension.
There is not one, but three grid templates surrounding our planet effecting human life. The three are separate, yet intricately related. The three become the one. The grids have separate functions relating individually to: (1) planetary gravitational field, (2) telluric electromagnetics, and (3) crystalline consciousness.
The Gravity grid is both within and on surface of the planet. It is anchored to the spinning crystalline core of the earth. It is in the form of a dodecahedron, a sphere with 12 facets. It is primarily rooted in the first three dimensions. The dodecahedron was the primary consciousness geometric of the planet from the time of the deluge of Atlantis, until the emergence of the icosahedron about 4,000 BC.
The Electromagnetic grid is at the level of the crust and extends upward in places as high as thirty thousand feet above sea level. It adjust itself according to the elevation of the planetary regions. This is the primary grid in which humankind have maintained their consciousness connection for the past 6,000 years. It can as such be termed as the human grid. It also regulates the electromagnetic systems, such as the leylines and vortex systems of the planet. It is in the sacred geometric form of the icosahedron, a sphere with 20 facets.
The Ascension or Crystalline 144 grid is anchored into the earth with two axis points. It is an emerging system, one that in truth has always been present, but not accessible, until after the Harmonic Convergence of 1987. Tremendous energy lines flow outward from the northern axis point and reenter at the southern. These energetic lines are directly connected to every sacred sites of Gaia. There are hundreds.
The grids reflect and to an extent regulate, parameters of the consciousness of both Gaia and spirit. The Gravity grid and Electromagnetic grid have been adjusted on several occasions since mans establishment on the earth plane 200,000 years ago. The Crystalline 144 grid became anchored in 1992, and scheduled activation began in 2001.
Platonic Solids Geometry
Since our planets birth, the grid work around the earth has consisted of a sacred geometry matrix of one of the five Platonic solids. Plato believed that the earth’s basic structure was in the process of evolving from simple geometric shapes into more complex ones. In order of complexity the five patterns theorized by Plato to be the building blocks of crystalline matrix, are the tetrahedron (4 faces), hexahedron (6 faces), octahedron (8 faces), dodecahedron (12 faces) and icosahedron (20 faces). Plato further theorized that the earth was evolving into an icosahedron grid.
Academics, including Dr Ivan Sanderson, Dr Hagens and Dr Becker, diagramed this shape in the 70’s by connecting major electromagnetic fields on the map. The points formed a triangular pattern of pentagons…. an icosahedron. However the pattern did not truly map the grid as was intended. The icosahedron was in fact, the geometry of the planetary light grid for the past twelve millennia, prior to the Harmonic Convergence.
The Harmonic Measurement
The Harmonic Convergence was an organized spiritual benchmark event that occurred on August 16 and August 17, 1987, when groups of people gathered in various sacred sites and powerpoints all over the world to herald a new frequential vibration . The date was based on the Mayan calendar and Mayan cosmology.
The Harmonic Convergence was a global awakening to unity & divine love. An opportunity for transformation. It was initiated in 1987 by Jose Arguelles. According to his interpretation of Mayan cosmology, this date was the conclusion of 22 cycles of 52 years each, or 1144 years. The Harmonic Convergence also began the final 26 year countdown to the end of the Maya calendar in 2012, which would be the “end of history” and the beginning of a new 5,125 year cycle. According to the prophesy, this is the turning point where all the negativity and paths of destruction, war, materialism, violence, abuses, injustice, governmental abusive of power, will end with the birth of the 6th Sun and the 5th World on Earth on the winter solstice of 2012, Decmber 21, 2012.
The 1987 Harmonic Convergence was also a measurement of Earths vibratory level, a test. The Earth revealed a far greater measurement of ‘light’ than ever before. For the first time since the ‘great fall’, the planet carried more ‘light’ than ‘dark’. As a result grids required ‘adjustments’. The magnetic grid was adjusted to lessen the ‘veil’ separating humans from their higher dimensional aspects. The telluric grid was adjusted to enable a greater vibratory rate, and this is particularly enacted within the energy of grid points & sacred sites. The crystalline grid took on a new, higher geometric model, capable of regulating a far more sophisticated light code than the old icosahedron.
Double Penta-Dodecahedron- Geometry of the 144 Crystalline Grid
As Joseph Jochmans writes in Earth: A Crystal Planet, “Beyond the Platonic series of Solids is another form being geometrically generated out of the old Icosa-Dodeca crystal. If you take an Icosahedron and join together with lines every other point inside the form, you create twelve pentacles or five-pointed stars. If you extend the outer edges of the Icosahedron and join these node points together, you create a second group of twelve pentacles or stars. This becomes the seed crystal that gives birth to a new crystalline form called a double penta- dodecahedron, composed of twelve double-pentacles equally spaced across the surface of the globe.”
The Crystalline 144 grid is now emerging beyond the icosahedron. A ‘seed-crystal’ matrix, the double penta-dodecahedron, is born. The evolved geometry is divinely fashioned to resonate a higher frequency for the new Earth.
Mainstream researchers are in fact noting that the node points and grid alignments earlier attributed to the Becker-Hagens icosahedron grid map, no longer fit. Scientist such as Dr. Greg Braden are noting that weather patterns are changing, climates are in major flux and migration routes of birds are altered. Whales and dolphins are beaching themselves far more often since the harmonic convergence. The earth’s geomagnetic field is changing, and changing fast. The earth’s heartbeat, the Schumann resonance is said to be increasing by some knowledgeable geophysicists, although others dispute this. Volcanic activity, earthquakes & super hurricanes are occurring more often. The phenomenon of global warming has created the ‘el nino’ phenomena, and the polar ice caps are melting. Solar storms and their resulting winds are spraying the planet at a rate higher than has ever been recorded.
This is undeniably an incredibly monumental transformation of global proportion. . The planets frequency is increasing, and our concept of time is speeding up. The planet is being prepared to vault into the 4th and 5th dimensions.
The new ascension grid is increasing in frequency as the magnetic grid is lessened. The dual grid complex is evolving into a trinity matrix. A crystalline frequency is being transmitted to the planet. This validates the prophesized change in the grid system and the work of the magnetic master, Kryon.
We can all be a part of the new crystal formation….the Crystalline-144 Ascension grid. One of the most meaningful avenues available to us in the ascension process is coming together as Lightworkers and Earth-Keepers in ceremony and unity, to awaken all humanity and bond with the Living Earth, the living Cosmos by generating and directing awakened loving energy.
By concerted efforts to support and give light to the ascension grid, we accelerate both it’ s activation and our own. The planetary Ascension grid is a manifestation of the energy evolvement and patterned growth of the Universal Consciousness. Earth is the living GAIA the grid is her aura. Sacred geometry is the language and fabric of higher dimension, higher consciousness, accordingly the grid contains the sacred geometry energy patterns of the golden phi and spiral, the platonic solids, the Flower of Life, and the crystal matrix of creation.
The triple dates, the 01-01-01, January 1,2001 occur each year all the way to the 12-12-12, December 12, 2012. These dates are numeric frequency portals that in fact are each aligned to activate one of the 12 major facets of the 144 Crystalline geodesic grid, the double penta dodecahedron. The crystalline grid becomes fully activated in December of 2012. A new world begins, as predicted so long ago by the Hopi and Mayans. The year 2007 tips the balance, with more than half of the Crystalline 144 in operational function.
There are many tools operating in synergy to increase the planets frequency. Among the most important is the light portals that are geometrically and magnetically aligned to the Crystalline grid and specific points in the cosmos. These ‘sacred sites and powerpoints’ are in essence diamond inserts on the planet with frequencial geometric overlays and electromagnetic properties that allow higher dimensional coded light and energy to flow into our reality. Many are being drawn to them, and that is appropriate. These are the accoutremental machinery of the Crystal Grid, the primary manifold mechanism of the Ascension.
These are particularly powerful on the equinoxes, solstices and trinity numeric frequency dates, leading up to the 12-12-12. When Lightworkers and seekers visits these sites, they are able to align themselves to the Crystalline grid trinity, to anchor themselves to its frequency, and to activate their hearts to the activation of the Ascension grid.
Merging into the 144-Crystal GRID
We accept readily that we are energetic beings surrounded by a potent electromagnetic field. We chose to be part of the ascension process and the ascension of the living Gaia. We channel inward great flows of cosmic divine energy with the capacity to direct this light outward through directed meditative thought for the highest good.
By unifying our energies in synchronized ecstatic states we form a powerful light vortex. This energy can cleanse, brighten, energize and activate each one of us, according to our intent and flow. Our intent is light of the highest order, transferred to the new grid, the new crystal matrix of Gaia…the 144-Crystal vibration.
144 Crystalline Grid Activation Mediation
The exercise for energy connection, transferal and activation of the ascension grid is as follows:
1. Find a place to set or lie comfortably.
2. Breath very deeply and rythymicly
3. Visualize diamond light energy coming in through the crown chakra.
4. Send it down through the spine, through each chakra, and back to the heart.
5. Flow the energy in a beam, a corridor of light energy, into the core of the earth.
6. From the core of the earth visualize the white light energy flashing into an infinity of light frequencies feeding into the Crystalline 144 Ascension grid.
7. Experience the ecstasy, and allow it flow thru you, allow the frequency of your body and mind to meld into & adjust to the frequency of the 144 Crystalline Grid
If this is done at a sacred site, powerpoint or grid point, visualize receiving this energy and then connecting it through your heart to other sacred sites , and back into the Ascension grid. Visualize weaving the vertice points of the geodesic sphere.
Through our creation and transfer of diamond-light, joyous energy into the Crystalline 144Ascension Grid, we simultaneously activate ourselves to be in oneness, alignment and in frequential unity with the heightened energy of ascension. As such we are better enabled to flow with the quickening energies of the ascending planet. We become loving, channeling columns of light, we connect as one synergetic beam of ecstasy. Each participant is a vortex, a point of light on the globe, one with another, one with the ascension. Creating, co-creating the frequency of the New Planet Earth toward the highest good. We are a microcosm of the macrocosm, a point of light in the bursting infinity of light. We are love, and are loved. We become part of the 144,000. We are the rapture, the ecstasy !
“ Greetings Beloved ! So we speak of the Grids, a most timely topic, we will say. Why timely you ask ? You see Dear Ones, an important date, an important frequential portal called the 7-7-7 is just days away, and it fires the crystalline grid beyond the half point, so you see, the Ascension is now over the ‘hump’ !!!
Now Masters, all of you within the crystalline energy are extreme energy in motion, energy as desire expressing itself and so your work calls forth now a finer frequency. Imagine that if you will take vitamins for your body they must be put so they can be absorbed by the body so they can be well used, they can generate wellness, well being, and health and so it is the same with frequencies and energies. They must now surround you in ways that you can absorb them into your energy fields, transferring them, converting them, and amplifying them into your own work, into your desires, into your fulfillment and into all ways that touch brother, sister, humanity, brother, sister, kingdom and such and so these words are brought to you from the beginning from the center of your being, from the center of my being that they will touch energetically and so create themselves easily, fortuitously in the days and weeks that come. Such it is with the grid you see, it too is a system that will allow you nurturing into a higher resonance, a higher more fulfilling resonance. For that that you call the Ascension is upon you, and in but a wink of the cosmic eye it will be done! In my realm it has been done already you see, and indeed it is a wondrous event. One heralded throughout the Universe and observed by many on this realm and others.
As the channel has written, we confirm the Planetary Grid Template System is a three-in one ‘Trinity’ system. Accordingly , there are three grids encompassing your planet at this point in time, and each has a separate geometry, a separate frequency, a separate function, & differing dimensional aspects. The ‘Trinity’ resonance has played such an important symbolic role and purpose on your planet, has it not? So it does again in the planetary Trinity of the Crystalline Grid.
Now the channel speaks of the crystalline grid making its debut after the Harmonic Convergence. That is not exactly the case, you see the crystalline grid has always been there in parallel and probability…. so, it is that mankind achieved the potential to sense the crystalline grid more lucidly after the Harmonic Convergence. You see, humankind and the planet are evolving into the crystalline vibration. Yes, indeed, to ascend, Dear Ones, your frequency, your merkaba is required to evolve into the crystalline, and this is occurring as we speak. So the matched frequencies resonate harmonically and so as this occurs individually and planetary you gain access to this grid. You tap into it, in your terms, and it activates you and itself in the process. All around you there is energy, there is life taking place but if you are not in sync with this frequency you will not sense it. The propeller blades of your helicopters rotate so quickly in flight that you cannot see them, but they are indeed there. If you were also moving or rotating as quickly they would be quite visible to you, and in fact not appear to be moving so rapidly. And so it is with frequency with lines of energy it is the same.
The channel queries the geometries of the trinity grid system. We confirm the geometries: the dodecahedron, icosahedron and double penta-dodecahedron, or as you term it the 144-Crystal, a term most appropriate we will say. However you must know that the very shape of each defines its frequential quotient, and as such its dimensional span. Dimensions are defined by wavelength or frequency you see. You required the higher frequency for the planet to move higher, thus the access to the 144- Crystalline became a necessity, a graduation. In aspect, the grids reside in different frequencial space, different dimensions, although there is common ground in which they all share. Do you understand?
The 144 Crystal grid is at present only potentially accessibly as mankind achieves the frequential capability of operating in its harmonic. This occurs initially on an individual basis, and as it gains field, it will occur in more mass consciousness upshifts. This is why , as the 144 Crystal presents itself, some of you are already in the fourth and fifth, and others are not. The masses are not. But it is not that it is required for existence, you see, others will not choose to ascend, but they will not disappear or die off. There are other opportunities based upon sacred geometry that supports third dimensional life and it will continue to do so.
The grids fit into the dimensional encapsulation of the planet, in an interesting harmonic. They are concentrically encased within one another, but through what may be termed a time-release multi-dimensional expansion & contraction.
Dimensionally speaking, the gravity grid dodecahedron extends from the first dimension to just below the third dimension, and is generally located below the surface of the planet. The electromagnetic or human grid icosahedron fluctuates from the first & second dimension to just below the fourth dimension. The icosahedron electromagnetic grid is the geodesic sphere, most closely aligned to the planets surface.
The Crystalline144- Grid extends from the fourth dimension to the ninth. Now the channel believes that the crystalline grid extends to the 12th dimension. We tell you that above the ninth it changes form and extends to the 12th in another geometric form. You see geometry is relative to the dimensional frequency from which it is viewed. From your perspective the crystalline does appear to move into the 12th, but in truth it does so with a different geometry, the polyhedron 120.
The polyhedron 120 grid contains the 144, within its 182 composition. The dodecahedron, the icosahedron and Crystalline 144 ( double-pentadodecahedron) do not spin, do not rotate . But it can be said that they expand and contract, that they ‘breathe’. And each of the greater complex grid geometries contains the one below it.
Now while from dimensions one to nine, the grids do not spin, above the 9th the 120 Polyhedron does grid does indeed spin ,in what is termed the golden ellipsoid, relative to the creation frequency of the golden phi. In your universe the golden ratio is of utmost importance. Do you understand? This geometry and frequency will not come into a major role on your planet for some years, and the exact timing is yet to be known. But we ask the channel not to be confused by the numerical value of its name, and assume 120 is lower than 144. You see the 120 Polyhedron has a greater frequency, the geometry of 182, so perhaps we should with tongue in cheek, call it the 182 Polyhedron. Would that make it easier then ?
Now the channel has asked if the Earth was on a pattern of termination prior to the Harmonic Convergence. That is correct, it was prophesized by many. However, it is not that the Earth was patterned for destruction prior to the Harmonic measurement, the Earth would have survived, inverted and recreated itself, it was patterned simply to become a different entity. Humanity that was slated for termination and not the Earth you see. A meteor crashing into the earth with a diameter of over 1 kilometer, would indeed have made wiped out most of humankind, and made the planet uninhabitable.
Now the Earth is a living entity, and has been conscious in all of her forms. As a gaseous fiery sphere, the earth was just as conscious as she is now, in your terms. It is with humor that we see man speaking of saving the planet, and while we commend the environmentalists of your planet, what is truly being saved is mans ability to live upon the Earth. You see the planet will survive even if man destroyed the resources required for his biology to sustain itself.
The channel has referred to unique dates, he calls the trinity dates, the 01-01-01 to the 12-12-12. We will confirm they are important and are patterned for preset frequential activation of the grid. But we will say it is not ‘written in stone’. In other words, the more important trigger of consciousness to the grid is based upon the rate of human evolvement. We will say that the 12-12-12 and the 12-21-12 (they are the same you see), are important numerological and astrological triggers for the planet and grid system, but a more powerful trigger is that of mankind’s degree of ascension. Intent and will are far stronger than astrological or numerical influence you see.
So you see, the trinity dates are important, but NOT more important than moments or triggers of the free will, which can potentially accelerate the geometric activation of the crystalline frequency. That potential would speed the synergy. That would be a catalyst that would open the crystalline grid into greater function, sooner than scheduled.
So we say to you, do not believe that the ascension cannot occur before 2012. It can. Now, in terms of humanity’s anticipated unfoldment and becoming aware of its cosmic ties to the 144 Crystal, yes in that way, these dates are pre- programmed, as described relating to the 12 facets, leading to 2012. We tell you that as of 2007, you are slightly ahead of schedule.
Now, as we mentioned earlier, in a very few days as you measure time, an important frequencial portal will occur that is quite significant to the Crystalline 144 Grid. That is July 7, (the 07-07-07) the ‘triple ‘7’ date as referred to by the channel.
This frequential activation is the firing up of the 7th of the 12 major pentacles of crystalline grid. As such, in your terms, the Ascension frequency is ‘ over the hump’, beyond mid point. So we say to you that inertia is building. Time is speeding up. All of you are innately aware of this within your higher perceptions. We tell you, in truth, the days of your now, contain only 18 hours of time, although yr timepieces measure 24. Your bodies know better. You see the energy of the earths crystalline core is spinning much faster than it did two decades ago. In truth space and time are different expressions of the same phenomena. In a manner of speaking space is congealed time, and its velocity relative to the speed of light determines the density of the congealed space. You see, although your mainstream scientist would disagree, the speed of light is in fact NOT constant. Likewise distance is a factor of light velocity, and as such distance in space is a variable. It is possible in higher dimension that the distance between two separate places, two distinct and separate points is zero. Likewise the time sequence between two separate events can also be zero. We call that the eternal NOW. All are variables of velocity. Time is varied by light velocity and light geometry according to dimensional perspective. So the geometry of light is an aspect of dimensional time.
Now, physical space as you think of it, in truth does not exist, rather it is a hologramic projection, but one that follows certain parameters or laws. True reality is innerspace, and the Cosmos of innerspace expands constantly in terms of energy and consciousness. I Metatron, am in the role of converting inner space, or Creative Mind, into Coded light, which through a great cooperative congeals energetically into your physical dimensional realities.
So we ask you to understand that the geometric, energetic grid that is being ‘fired’ into brilliance, the 144 Crystalline Grid is bringing many changes to your physical reality through laws of physics and laws of consciousness that are currently beyond the scope of most of humanity, and certainly well above the conceptions of mainstream academia on the Earth at this time. But if you accept the postulates that we give you, it is easier to understand the changes that are taking place, changes that both your body and higher mind readily sense & feel. Time is indeed speeding up and will continue to do so. As such it is recommended that those of you who wish to adept to the frequencial metamorphisms, take better care of your physical vehicle. We recommend you spend more time in quiet meditation, and tap into the frequency of the conscious grid. Follow the meditation exercise we have offered the channel. Your higher mind is fully aware that it can meld with these frequencies and as such help you adjust to the increasing frequencies of the heralded Ascension. We also tell you that the body physical and the human etheric body can more easily adjust to the crystalline frequencies through the use of higher frequency quartz crystals, phi spiral multi faceted Vogel crystals and specific gemstones. Certain of your gemstones, especially those that are single refractive, have the ability to ‘slow’ the speed of light. Your scientists know this. Recommended single refractive gems are diamonds of at least one carat ,and tsavorite or demantoid garnets of over 2 carats. These SR Gems can assist you most effectively, as well as enhance your life force.
Now as your Ascension completes itself, you will have greater access to the multidimensional aspects of yourselves. In truth, for some of you, the Ascension has, for the most part, already occurred, in terms of multidimensionality. Do you understand ?
So we tell you that as the grids grow into completion, that beyond the 144 Crystalline, will be the Polyhedron 120 Geodesic sphere, and it will achieve its completion by the year of 2024. Now, multidimensional; access will be fully achieved with the Crystalline grid, and in truth the Polyhedron 120, is a greater aspect of the crystalline field. The completion of the grid system will complete a cycle that will lead to the eventual establishment of a ‘ Crystalline Firmament’ .
The Crystalline Firmament will evolve in a sequence after the adjustment of the axial and polar energies of the planet. After the changes of what is termed global warming. After the planet sheds her old skin and adorns her new one.
Consider the geometric-crystalline completion of the geodesic grids as a flower achieving full bloom, at which point a cosmic pollination will occur and an energetic seed- field will come into effect. You see the very completion of the perfect geometric form germinates a new field from its unified perfection…and that field may be called the Crystalline Firmament.
It will emerge as two great elliptical bands of energy that intersect at 90-degree angles around the planet.
One will carry the color and essence of platinum, the other of gold. One will be electrical in nature the other magnetic. Their energies will circulate in modulated opposition, and the field between the two will encompass the planet in a spherical manner. And from this a conscious self-aware field circumnavigates the planet to allow for an even greater perfection of the Earth. This Crystalline Firmament will allow for what was termed by the ancients as the 1000 years of peace. Better said, as a modulated amplification of balanced resonance. The magnetics of the planet will be in supreme, optimal balance.
Now the Earth and Human Kind will have need for the Crystalline Firmament, and will call it forth. It will assist in many roles, perhaps more than you imagine. It will deflect meteorites and comets, it will lessen the effects of gamma rays into the Earths atmosphere. It will come forth by a natural and scientific effort, it is the natural offspring of the completed crystalline grid.
The firmament is not new. Your bible speaks of a firmament that occurred in the most ancient of days, and described it as a ‘dome’ in the sky. Masters we tell you that before your planet had a grid system, it has a firmament. Before your planet became a planet of lesson, a planet of duality, existed its protective sheath called the firmament. The ancient firmament encircled the planet in two layers, one magnetic and one electrical, and between the two layers existed a complex crystalline form of ice. The frozen water was slightly saline and held properties that enabled the winds and all weather to be modulated. At that time the Earth was a place of supreme creation, of adventure, we will say. It had not yet evolved into the school it since became. It was, one might say, the original Garden of Eden, before serpents and apples. Before the fall of the firmament the Earth was not a planet of duality.
That which some terms the great fall was the dissolution of the firmament. In truth it was by design, that a great wave seared through the cosmos, one so powerful that the firmament fell into particulate, and the earth shifted on its axis. The magnetic shield was absorbed into the inner core of the earth, and the electrics, into the crystalline minerals and indeed into the DNA of mankind.
From this particulate arose the gravity grid and the evolution of the icosahedronal human electric grid. From the dissolution of the firmament, man began his journey in duality, in lesson. The rest as you humans say, is history… And this history, in all its parallels and probabilities and eternal NOWS, my beloved Masters, over the eons of Earth time, in the blink of Metatrons eye, brought us to the Harmonic Convergence, the great measurement, and to the coming Ascension.
All is on course, all is evolving, and all is perfect, in that you call the geometric Grids, and oh they are so much more…”
And so it is….
I am Metatron Master of Light
………..and so it is
