Looking Forward to the Golden-Crystal Age
The “golden-crystal age” is a time of wholeness, peace and harmony upon Earth when a majority of mankind live together in brotherly love and unity and in service to God and man. Educational, religious, scientific and governmental institutions elevate and serve its citizenry. Music and the arts rise to new heights of sublime beauty and perfection. Nature is unmarred by any form of blight, environmental pollution or violent weather condition. Climates are consistently moderate with the precise precipitation needed to grow delectable fruits, grains, vegetables and lush flora and healing herbs. There is a lessening of disease and lifespans are increased. Solar power and the use of spiritual science techniques have advanced technology at every level. And nature spirits, angels and ascended beings walk and talk with us daily in full view. Heaven in great measure is integrated with Earth in this golden-crystal age of Aquarius.
Worship of the Sun—a Primitive or Enlightened Practice?

Archeologists think of ancient Egyptians, Babylonians and Incas as primitive nature worshipers, but these civilizations built pyramids, a feat that we, with all of our modern technology, can't duplicate. What's more, the sun worship taught by Akhenaton and Zarathustra were the beginnings of the understanding of monotheism.
Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov, a Bulgarian teacher and adept, said in his book, Toward a Solar Civilization, “In our planetary system, the sun is the representative of God, the supreme sun of the universe…. Light, warmth and life as we know them are a very inferior reflection of the true light, true warmth, and true life. Behind the light of the sun is the light of God…. You must not think of the light of the sun as the true light of God. It is a reflection of the true Light.”1
The Light of Creation—Videlina and Svetlina
In his book Light is a Living Spirit, Omraam shares more about this true light, which he calls videlina. In the Bulgarian language, videlina means “spiritual or invisible light.” According to physicists this light, or ether, is an extremely subtle invisible medium that fills outer space. Another term for it is akasha. When videlina, or ether, condenses, it forms svetlina, a Bulgarian word for physical light. Omraam explains that “the light that we receive from the sun is not the Light of that first day of creation of which Genesis speaks. Beyond the visible sun is the invisible dark Sun which pours a ceaseless stream of energies into our visible sun, and the visible sun transforms them and sends them on in the form of light…. It was not the spoken word which created the world, it was the Logos, the Divine Word, Light…."2
If we weave this new understanding of light with the first chapter of Genesis, we can conclude that on the first day, God created the Spiritual Light—the Invisible Light, the First Movement within the Spirit of God, the First Manifestation or Expression of Life. This Primordial Light that emanated from God in the Great Central Sun was used as the raw material to create this physical universe, including physical light—the sun, the moon, the stars—which God created on the fourth day. As the essence of life, this invisible light is the cause of motion in all that is manifest and unmanifest in the universe. Its chief function is to impart motion to all living things, to maintain the flow of life.
We now also have a greater understanding of what St. John wrote in his gospel, chapter 1, verse 14— “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not…. That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world….” In other words, the Word was movement or vibration that created and animated the material universe from subatomic particles to the most immense sun.
The Sun behind the Sun; The Sun behind the Son
John also wrote, “And the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us. And we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.” (John 6:32-33, 49-50.) This could mean that the Christ Light was manifested in Jesus. But at a deeper level, it could mean that the Word of God, or the invisible true light of God was condensed into material sunlight and that we beheld his glory, or “glow ray,” full of grace and truth.
The Word according to Omraam, John the Apostle and the Rig Veda3 is the creative principle that gives life. So it's that power aspect of the Father/Mother. In the gospel of John, Jesus tells the Pharisees, “It is not Moses who has given you the bread from heaven, but it is my Father who gives you the true bread from heaven. For the bread of God is that which comes down from heaven and gives life to the world….. This is the bread that came down from heaven. Your forefathers ate manna and died, but he who feeds on this bread will live forever.” (John 1:1.) Jesus is making the assertion here that the true bread from heaven is the Word of God, which comes down from the Father in heaven, from the Sun behind the sun, to give us life through the rejuvenating rays of sunlight absorbed through the skin.
The A-Factor and the X-Factor of Sunlight
It is well known that sunlight causes the secretion of the hormone, vitamin D, which is essential for health and well-being. This life-giving aspect of sunlight from the Father was called the A-factor by sungazing researcher, Gene Savoy. There is also an X-factor, or immortality factor. When taken in through the eyes as in, “We beheld his glory,” it becomes the wisdom of the Son “full of grace and truth.”
Savoy called the wisdom aspect of sunlight the “intelligence factor” or “IF.” He wrote in his book, Project X: The Search for the Secrets of Immortality, “This energy [from the sun and beyond] has inherent IF potential. It is cosmic information coming into our mind and consciousness directly from the source—the cosmos where it all began…. The first cause in the creation of the world was the ‘word,’ or the logos, which emerged from the mouth of God. The philosophers have always taught that this ‘word’ is the true nutrient of the spiritual part of man.”4
Omraam lectured about this intelligence from the sun. He said, “I can say that certain things that no human can teach me have been revealed to me by the sun. No book can give you what the sun gives you if you learn to have the proper relationship with him…. If you want to create a bond between you [and the sun], you have to look at him in all consciousness. If you do that, there will be a communication of vibrations between the sun and you in which forms and colors, a whole new world, will be born…. The sun is an intelligence, a life, a living light. And when you understand that, all of a sudden he begins to speak to you…. Try asking him a question and you will see that he will answer you.”5
Communicating with the Sun
This communication with the sun is through the language of angels, which Savoy claimed was “a language of symbols—energy and wavefront patterns with an Intelligence Factor that impinges upon one’s spiritual consciousness and is understood thereby.” There are techniques that facilitate communication with the sun during sungazing. The sun transmits information through our eyes, including the third eye, or pineal/pituitary gland complex, when we sungaze. If you look at the pineal gland under a microscope, you will see that it is covered by unusual crystalline structures that effectively make it an antenna, sensitive to electromagnetic stimulation. So when we sungaze, we become human radios that receive signals from the sun.
If the pineal is the antenna, what is the battery? Omraam said, “the solar plexus is in contact with the entire cosmos and serves as the medium through which man communicates with the universe.” So the solar plexus is the solar battery that powers our communication. Thus, the receptivity of the pineal gland is enhanced when the solar plexus is charged, and this is done by sungazing in the Y-position, standing with feet together and arms and hands outstretched. This Y-position was thought by the ancient Greeks to channel the sun’s ethereal radiance. This radiance could also be termed, the Word.
Plutarch wrote that our etheric body absorbs this radiance. We see in pictures of sun worshipers from all over the world—Hindus, American Indians, ancient Egyptians, Medieval monks, Russians, Incans—this stance. And even in prehistoric petroglyphs, figures stand in the Y-position facing the sun. Only sun yogis can maintain this position for any length of time. An alternate position, which is just as effective, is to bend the arms at the elbow and have the forearms raised.
Tuning in to the Mind of God
So we have this sungazing position that transforms us into human radios. But how do we tune in to the mind of God, the Solar Presence6 in the Great Central Sun?7 In order to have this attunement, we need to do three other things beside sungaze. We need to activate the three upper chakras through prayer, meditation, and chanting mantras or singing sacred songs.
- Chanting and singing with devotion activates the heart chakra.
- Praying aloud with willful intent activates the throat chakra.
- Meditating in mindful stillness activates the crown chakra.
These activities were part of the daily program of every solar mystery school, including that of Akhenaton in Akhetaten, that of Pythagoras at Crotona, and that of Master Omraam at the Bonfin, Blagoslovenie, IDEAL and other communities. Omraam said, "Through thought and imagination you can pick up wavelengths that will allow you to hear the voices of heaven, the voices of peace and harmony.
“What does it mean to pray? It means finding the wavelength in ourselves that will put us in touch with the heavenly entities, with the Lord. And these entities will let us participate in the orderly, harmonious movement of their existence. To pray is to release a divine vibration within ourselves."8
An Increase in Solar Energy
In the next few years it will be increasingly important to maintain our attunement because the outpouring of energy and information from the sun will increase exponentially. We are now experiencing an awesome increase in solar energy. We are in the middle of an eleven-year solar cycle that will peak in 2012. Scientists predict that because of planetary alignments within our solar system, in addition to the alignment of the solar system itself with the center of the galaxy, the solar flares we will experience will be greater than any experienced in recent history.
The changes we see in the sun, the earth and are experiencing in our consciousness are from the light frequency of the Galactic sun. It is transmitting to our sun a higher level of radiation or intelligence factor so that we will have the information we require to create a new earth of beauty, health, and peace.
Sunspots and Civilizations
Solar scientist, Maurice Cotterell, compared the peaks and troughs of the sunspot cycle over thousands of years with the rise and fall of civilizations. He found that high solar activity correlated exactly with a renaissance in the sciences, arts, literature, freedom and spirituality. Low sunspot activity seemed to be linked with periodic dark ages. For example, going back 11,500 years to the end of the Ice Age, a huge spike in activity occurred around 9000 B.C. This was the golden age of the pyramid builders in the Americas and Egypt and the solar civilization in India under Rama and Vashishta.
There were two peaks of solar activity between 600 B.C. and 400 B.C.—the times of Gautama Buddha; Lao Tzu; Confucius; Pythagoras; and Mahavira, the Jain Saint who taught sungazing. Democracy in Greece and Rome emerged and peace treaties were signed between Athens and Sparta, and Persia and her enemies. Virtually no solar activity around 1400 to 1480 A.D. coincided with the time of the Black Death, the beginning of African slavery in Europe, and the Inquisition. But those dark times were followed by the discovery of America and the Renaissance between 1500 and 1600 A.D. when there was once again a peak of solar activity.
From these coincidences, Cotterell inferred that solar radiation somehow affected the human consciousness, giving us greater creativity, intuition and insight. Find additional information on the effects of solar radiation in an article entitled, “The Hidden Reality of Sunlight”9 by Dr. Mitchell Gibson, student of sungazing researcher, Gene Savoy.
Birthpangs of the Golden-Crystal Age of Aquarius
Coming earth changes and solar flares, accelerating into 2012, are the birth pangs of a new day. Omraam explains, “The Age of Aquarius will soon be upon us and the tremendous upheavals accompanying it will oblige human beings to understand the reality of the invisible world and the laws that govern it. But the beauty, splendour and harmony of the new life that will emerge from these upheavals will be beyond anything imagined by man. All those who have been secretly working for the coming of the Kingdom of God throughout the world will join forces and work together; and the bastions of ignorance, materialism and despotism will crumble and collapse. And it will be. Nothing can prevent the coming of the new era, the new Golden Age.”
We, each one, may assist this birth process through all forms of heartstreaming10—prayer, visualization, meditation. See Prayers and Songs to experiment with the mantras and rhymed prayers that were created for this very purpose. And even as the ascended masters11 have told us of our responsibility to prepare both spiritually and physically for changing times, they show us the way through their hope and belief in us and our ability, in cooperation with the angels, to create this new day.
Preparing in Practical Ways
Preparedness is the byword as we move from one cycle to another. The ascended masters teach that it is wise to prepare for any contingency but to have hearts filled with hope and minds visioning all that is positive. This positive attitude in itself is a potent prayer that will bring the desired result by God’s great mercy. Our website offers much detailed information on short and long-range preparedness planning. You will find information on the creation of sustainable communities and permaculture lifestyles as well.
In peace of mind and hearts of faith, may each of us prepare in all ways to be pillars in the foundation of the coming golden-crystal age as we exhibit the qualities of the sun—unconditional love, brilliant wisdom and inexhaustible strength.

- Solar Presence is a new term, introduced by the ascended masters through The Hearts Center, to describe that part of our being that is God, depicted as the upper figure in Your Buddha Nature Chart. The Solar Presence is also called the I AM Presence, the Divine Presence, the God Presence. It is the individualization of the One, our true divine identity. In the wording Solar Presence we see the image of our total being as a radiating sun center which continually emanates divine love and every virtue to all life.

- Heartstreaming is a practice that brings about a shift in consciousness, moving us from seeking the best mental models and ideas for problem solving or creativity to magnetizing inspired solutions that await our discovery. Heartstreaming comes naturally when there has been a cultivation of the heart, an ongoing spiritualization of the heart. The heart is our bridge to the subtle world of Spirit. Heartstreaming works with groups as well as individuals, with the young as well as those of all ages.

- The ascended masters are the saints and sages of all religions who once walked upon this planet and other worlds and have earned the right to ascend back to God. They are called “ascended masters”, for they have gained mastery over the world in which we live. And in the heaven world, they work together on projects that assist us here so that we may attain that self-same mastery.
