The following are excerpts showing the type of information available in We Are Not Alone: A Guidebook for Interdimensional Cooperation, by Atala Toy, published by Red Wheel Weiser, along with comments from readers.
From Chapter 5 On the Nature of the Merkabah Unit
Geometry And Communication
Merkabahs are called by many “sacred geometry.” Sacred geometry simply depicts what various visionaries see when looking into the light forms that exist behind matter. They are patterns of light that are formed as energy coheres to perform some task. This shape gradually defines itself more and more and eventually descends into a solid form such as an ant or a human or a table.
There are several sacred geometry shapes associated with the merkabah. One is the flower of life and another is the star tetrahedron, also called the Star of David. These two forms express different aspects of the merkabah. The flower of life shows the nature of the field of the merkabah. The star tetrahedron shows the polarities of the field.
This coming world we are entering is known in some traditions as the time of the 12-pointed star, which is a double-star tetrahedron forming a single merkabah. The 12-pointed star is actually two star tetrahedrons adjusted to each other, forming a more complex, subtle merkabah. It represents the higher octave now being integrated to the former base octave as a more complex consciousness becomes manifest on earth. It is the energy that enables us to experience both the physical and spiritual levels of existence.
The Construction Of A Merkabah
As the two pyramids that form the star tetrahedron counter-rotate to each other, they create a spinning ball of frequency called a merkabah. The merkabah is often shown with a line, signifying a column of light, extending through it top to bottom. This column of energy has at its center point, within the column of light, a core point from which the merkabah has emerged from its source. The column is every form’s connection to the ultimate polar energies of the father (spirit) and mother (creation) consciousness of the universe. It also indicates that the merkabah is further expandable along those lines.
When inspected in stop action, an active merkabah can look something like a map globe, the latitude and longitude lines being its grid. Sometimes the merkabah is seen in motion, in which case it looks like a glowing orb of light. When the merkabah is in full spin, it looks like saucer space ships (UFOs). Some life forms, when traveling between dimensions, use merkabahs created from their own energy and others use travel vehicles external to themselves.
Far Eastern yantras and mandalas are graphs of various fields of consciousness. Adepts can enter into very specific fields by the information these diagrams relay.
When we look at an authentic mandala or yantra or sacred geometry form, we are actually looking at a subtle engineering schematic of what is occurring inside a particular aspect, or merkabah, of consciousness. We are each a living merkabah, always changing in time/space dimensions relative to modulation, spin, frequency and complexity. We could, if we wish, even graph ourselves and how our own energy fields overlap and interact.
A classic mandala graphs a specific energy. Adepts can look at it and read the symbols to understand the energies involved. Let’s look at the classical mandala of creation.
The central form is the star tetrahedron. The center of this is the core source. The absolute source has been perceived as both a void and as an unmanifest fullness inherently containing all. When it is perceived as a void, the Eastern diagram of creation has nothing in the middle of the Star of David. When it is perceived as an unmanifest fullness, the diagram has a single dot in the middle, as shown above, indicating that point from which all else has emerged.
The mandala next shows a double circle around the star tetrahedron, indicating energy is infinitely expanding in a balanced way. There are eight lotus petals, indicating its frequency or sound (In the Western musical scale this is the note of F or FA—the heart frequency). The square indicates the form is being held still for examination.
Interdimensional travelers understand the importance of always having a perceivable way out. Most classical mandalas therefore have four doors, signifying the energies of the four directions, which permit the energy worker or spiritual practitioner to move into and out of the form at will.
One can also always leave via the core source of the form. This point may be disguised, obliterated from sight, clogged, shut down, “cut off” but this is on the lower levels of frequency. At the highest levels, a clear access ALWAYS exists. Reaching this point can sometimes be difficult.
From Part 3 Stories from a Shapeshifter
A negative vortex is one where energy spins out, counter rotating to the dominant life force of that field.
The precise definition of “negative” takes its form from its relationship to the full field. Negative vortexes are very useful devices for balancing and clearing area energy. Don’t automatically assume such a site should be negated.
Very often negative vortexes are paired with positive ones, to balance the energies in a location. The problem comes when either vortex is clogged or imbalanced. The appropriate procedure is to clear and balance both, so that they can function appropriately in relation to each other.
Vortexes – spirals of energy – are common in nature. They have different causes and functions. Vortexes spin out or draw in energy from their surroundings. They should help regulate energy flow but this sometimes does not occur for various reasons.
Vortexes should spin out the energy which is their source. This is like humans, who spin out the energy of the specific lineage from which they have evolved. The solution to a vortex, then, lies in recognizing the source, the purpose for which it is spinning and then deciding with the forces and beings involved in the situation what should be done. Sometimes nothing should be done. The devas may just be showing you their workings.
This is a very simple and often immediate solution to vortex imbalance. Ideally a vortex is gently spinning and keeping a specific energy field clear. If a different energy enters into the vortex which the vortex cannot absorb for some reason, the new energy starts to settle in, like plaque on teeth and gradually clogs the gears. You see this in nature in areas where land development has occurred and temporarily overwhelmed the ages-old operations of natural vortexes.
You see it in humans when, for example, their third eye chakra is overloaded with the input of images during a walk in a busy city and that chakra slows up or shuts down. The solution is to not only counter-rotate the field, to spin the debris out; but also to accept the reality of the new situation and develop an appropriate protocol. In the case of the nature vortex, the interdimensional communicator would discuss the situation with the vortex beings and guide them to comprehend the nature of the new energies, so that their own developed protocols can be adjusted by them to include the new energies. This might happen, for example, in the presence of electrical communication lines that are sending out a steady and unfamiliar frequency.
In the case of the third eye/pineal gland chakra, the human needs to learn grid integrity: how to seal the merkabah around the third eye. Then they can show that merkabah how to either block forces they cannot yet handle, or how to let the force/frequency/energy pass through the third eye like air. When one has identified totally with an energy and wishes to do so, they can let it pass through their own field without any “hooks” that the energy can catch on. This is the most advanced state of energy work. It entails the practitioner’s going into the energy itself, mastering their own aversion or fear of it and understanding its value in the universe.Once this occurs, then there is nothing inside the practitioner’s personal field for the energy to grab or hook onto and it continues through and on into the universe.
Gears Within Gears
I first encountered these types of vortexes in Barrington, IL. Here I found a number of verdant vortexes that had within them one or more subsidiary vortexes. They looked like circles of bright green grass with smaller grass circles inside them.
Vortexes have many causes. In this instance they are caused by mature healthy vortexes incorporating more healthy frequencies with themselves. For example, within the overall vortex are a smaller water vortex from an underground site operating at one frequency and an active mineral deposit vortex operating at another frequency.
Other situations include a healthy vortex still bearing the thought forms implanted by a previous resident or even a culture. The northwest suburban area of Chicago, for example, has a very rich heritage of peaceful, nomadic Indian tribes, as well as communities existing in that location in other time/space continuums that cross over subtlety into our third dimension.
In all these cases, the turning of multiple vortexes within a space works much like old-style clock gears, each segment working together to keep the entire operation smoothly running.
From Chapter 11 Support from Guides, Guardians and inner colleagues
We all have guides and guardians of our very own, whether or not we choose to acknowledge them. Establishing a working relationship with guides requires time, effort and trust.
Very often, when I am lecturing on the topic of guides, individuals in the audience will ask what is occurring with them. When I look about, an image I often see is soft angel wings folded over a person’s shoulders, surrounding and protecting the heart. These are the gentle folk, somewhat bruisable, whose angels are encouraging them to live in the heart by surrounding them with loving care. When told of this, the person is actually vaguely aware of the situation but has been refusing to acknowledge it, because of cultural conditioning that such events are only “imagination.”
Another image I often see is a guide standing behind a person with its hands over its mouth. The guide is showing me that its person has told it to shut up and, this being a free-will world, it has complied. It is still there, still protecting but just not speaking to the human.
Most people in contemporary Western mainstream society were taught in childhood that voices and apparitions are things to be wary of. They are dark forces or they are imaginary and for goodness sake, please don’t ever tell anyone you can see them or you will be locked up like Uncle Joe or deemed crazy like Aunt Meg. The fear inculcated in children is often greatest in those families for whom extended vision is an actual occurrence. These families have often, in their lineage and thus in their cellular memory, had problems with their community or religious affiliation in the past and wish to spare their children the same experience.
This is a free-will world. Guides and guardians of the light comply with an individual’s free-will mandates. If this request includes an individual’s repeated statement, “Don’t talk to me,” they eventually will not. It is usually only in an emergency or in a situation we have not been able to resolve at a material level that we seek help from other realms, very often unconsciously or as a great cosmic call to the universe for help. It is then that these forces will very often instantly come in and assist, because we have sincerely, from the heart, asked. “Ask and ye shall receive.” When we are lucky, we are aware of this and continue to work with these guides on a conscious level. This is how I and many other innovators of today’s alternative technologies reestablished contact with their own internal lineages. We had a crisis, called on the universe for help – and the universe responded.
Establishing A Relationship With Our Helpers
We all have guides and guardians of our very own, whether or not we choose to acknowledge them. Upon initial conscious contact, they often act like big brothers or protective parents: they take care of and watch over us. Eventually, when we are energetically grown up and are comfortable existing in interdimensional society, they become our friends and colleagues.
Initially, when we go seeking our own guide or guardian, with true sincerity, the strongest force present in our field will respond. When we do so in a group setting, such as at a workshop focused on working with your guides, the power of the group all seeking the same goal will strengthen the connection for each member.
Often, when I am working with a large group of people, I will consciously ask my own guides to please contact the guides of the audience members and give them some sign of their presence. When the exercise is complete, many in the audience report a variety of occurrences. These vary according to the individual’s orientation, receptivity and capacity. The guide may make the person’s finger tap; it may take on the appearance of a beloved relative who has passed over to deliver a message. The person may experience an angel speaking to them or a spiritual teacher or totem figure contacting them. It can include a feeling of light or love or peace descending into them; a shimmering enveloping them like sparkles of light; colors appearing around them or before them; or sounds or voices giving them a very specific message such as “live in the heart” or “all is well”. Our guides initially will use whatever most sensitive access they can find to bridge the world in which they exist with ours. Then, as we get used to each other, our interactions become clearer and more precise.
Establishing a working relationship with guides requires time, effort and trust.
