Journal Entry 08.24.2016 – “The Return of the Guardians”


DSCN0666Journal Entry 08.24.2016 – “The Return of the Guardians”

Note to Reader:  In this “journal entry” I share a bit of what I learned through the reading of the latest book by David Wilcox, “The Ascension Mysteries”, blended with what I have picked up through my own assorted readings through the years, decades of being on my own individual journey of self-discovery.

Yesterday, I was rather overcome with nausea, diarrhea, joint pain, muscular aches and a general feeling of malaise.  Later in the day, I saw that there had been a significant CME (Coronal Mass Ejection) from our Sun.  And this morning, came the news of a 6.4 on the Richter scale, deadly earthquake located in the center of the Italian Peninsula… an area of ancient villages perched atop the ridges of the Apennine mountain range.  Things are rocking and rolling…and it’s going to get even more intense according to various sources, inner and outer.

This morning in the wee hours when it was still inky black outside, I “heard” a telepathic greeting.  “They” introduced themselves as the “Guardians”.  Having just finished reading “Ascension Mysteries”, a new book by David Wilcox, and being an avid reader of various other sources, I was already familiar with these beings, beings of great significance in our hitherto unknown history.  They are a highly advanced sixth density race that aids and guides other younger races through various evolutionary stages and then withdraws to allow the races to mature.  With their return, it is apparent that the human collective based on planet Earth is ready to undergo just such an evolutionary advancement, from an earthbound civilization to a cosmic one, free to move among the stars and to meet and interact with our “cousins” and other galactic races.

“We are here in great numbers to assist humanity in their upcoming Ascension!”

In 2004, I was made aware of the cyclic nature of our Universe and certainly of our solar system and planet, when I wrote a long paper on the root races of humanity.  Whether or not you believe in the existence of root races is unimportant.  What struck me as important is that everything, from individuals to the Universe itself undergoes cycles.  The ancient Sanskrit texts call these cycles the Yugas.  We are currently leaving the Kali Yuga or dark cycle and entering a golden age or Sathya Yuga.  As noted in theosophical texts, the yugas tend to overlap, so when one great age or Great Year (25,920 years) is completed, there comes a period of significant chaos and overturning of the old in favor of the new ongoing impulse of energies from the Great Central Sun.

There was one other somewhat disturbing phenomena as well of cyclic nature and that has been enshrined in the legends, stories and sacred texts the world over, a period when our Sun, giver of life, puts forth a great surge of light that has the potential to wrought great changes upon our little planet. So it was with great interest that I read the pages of David Wilcox’s latest book, which implies that this light surge is momentarily expected and has been known of for a very long time by our erstwhile controllers, variously known as the Cabal.

The members of the Cabal believe that they are the direct descendants of the priests who served the extraterrestrial beings who arrived on Earth some 55,000 years ago.  Their story is encrypted within the ancient Sumerian texts.  These beings called “the Watchers” in the Old Testament of the Bible, intermarried with indigenous humans, something that apparently violated Cosmic law.  Divine retribution was swift and violent as a great kingdom located in North Africa was overthrown and cast down, its extensive ruins buried beneath the sands of the Sahara Desert.  This “judgment” came from the heavens in the form of an attack from the enemies of these new rulers of Earth.

Long ago… in my own lifetime, I learned of the existence of another planet within this solar system, the remnants of which are now the Asteroid Belt between Mars and Jupiter.  I also learned that Mars and Venus had both once carried life and civilizations.  Mars had had great oceans and Venus had pure air and beautiful gardens.  I learned these things in the classroom of a New Age church.  History, even that which is suppressed and hidden from everyday man can be rooted out and discovered within the esoteric texts of the great mystery schools.  One must approach these teachings with some skepticism as much has been altered for a specific agenda of retaining control and instilling fear in human beings.  Even the Bible, a much altered volume, is missing several (40+) books which would lead readers to a much different conclusion about our own history as well as the real teachings and activities of the great teacher, Yeshua bar Joshua.  And much of the history before the time of Jesus and the Romans has been excluded from the Old Testament, in favor of volumes that would support the propaganda and dogma given forth by the church…in its various forms.

The information regarding our collective history is far more startling than one would think.  For one thing, the Earth has carried civilizations for far longer than people have been told.  It has been the orthodox view that civilization is only about 6,000 years old.  What do you think about civilizations on this planet as being millions, if not billions of years old?

The information presented in David Wilcox’s book, “The Ascension Mysteries”, has a positive message:  Humanity is meant to ascend and the energies that will surge forth from our life-giving Sun are meant to support that process.  As David has attempted to establish in this book and his two others, “The Source Field…” and “The Synchronicity Keys”, is the rather profound realization that our Universe supports life.

The work of pioneering archaeologist’s and researchers has been uncovering the remnants of civilizations that do not “fit” into the orthodox view of history or even that of “pre” history.  Skeletons of giant humans, with odd elongated skulls; buildings made of giant stones that modern engineering cannot hope to hope to emulate, strange markings on the ground in vast isolated parts of the globe, incredible mathematical secrets embedded in huge stone edifices like the Great Pyramid; vast and complex cities lying off shore, buried beneath the waves or covered by the sands of great deserts… these things silently speak a vastly different story for our planet and the history of the indigenous races here.  For one thing, it is evident that many civilizations have both risen and fallen over a far longer period of time than has been put out or generally accepted by orthodox researchers.

So why the silence one must ask themselves:  Why has there been a systematic cover-up, indeed a violent suppression of any knowledge of the existence of “other” species of humans upon this planet? Is there someone in a position of power and authority who has a desire to keep secrets in order to retain order and control?  The answer is “yes” and it is evident that the Cabal is the “who”.  Why?  For the very reason that the origins of the Cabal are extraterrestrial… and they don’t want humanity to know this secret.  Still, given the extent of the data dumps, the ongoing revelations by patriotic insiders within the secret government, the secret of the Cabal’s dealings with humanity is coming out.  The Internet is playing a great role in the unmasking of the Cabal, as it allows a wide assortment of individuals to connect or seek out seemingly unrelated information and begin to piece together a puzzle that is altogether different in scope to that which currently passes as “history” in our heavily controlled universities and colleges.

The one thing that the Cabal fears most is the Ascension of humanity.  And they fear the judgment that will befall all those of a negative nature, the so-called “service to self” agenda that has long kept the Cabal and its many minions in power.  The judgment, if it can be called such, is simply the rebalancing of karma long overdue.  The members of the Cabal, with the advantage of their esoteric training in the dark arts of magick, their knowledge and misuse of cosmic law for their own purposes and their continued manipulation of humans through the use of disinformation and instilling fear and confusion, have abused their position of authority over others.  Payment is due… and soon.  The members of the Cabal can run, but they cannot hide from the agents of Karma, the Guardians.  And they cannot hide from the effects of the mighty rays of our Sun and the Cosmic rays that grow in ever increasing intensity upon this planetary body as the day for the coming of the Sun of God approaches.

It is also apparent that all of humanity will not ascend either.  The requirement is that you must be at least 51% positive in nature, or “service to others” in orientation.  The Law of One material encourages one to learn forgiveness and kindness.  Just “be kind” and you will be okay.  The teachings of Jesus speak of forgiveness, letting go of judgment and being merciful in your daily dealings with others.  Truly one can find forgiveness for one’s own foibles and mistakes and then find forgiveness for others who have harmed you in kind.  Forgiveness, acceptance, adaptability and kindness will assist one to strive on a spiritual level, if not on a material one.

There are many forces that govern our world.  The Law of Cause and Effect can be manipulated to an extent, but it cannot be put off forever.  Those who have governed mankind and sought its destruction for their own malicious purposes will be made to suffer the consequences in kind that they have wrought upon the innocent populations of countries torn apart by war and violence.

Again the question, why have these “men” done these things?  In part, they believe themselves superior in origin and blood than the rest of humanity… for they are not, entirely, human in origin.  That is, they are not indigenous to this planet.  In esoteric texts, you will find the story of beings who were allowed to reincarnate upon this planet after their own planets, Mars and Marduk, were destroyed in a great war, a Star Wars if you will.  It was a story of the fall of a great Empire that had dominated the local star cluster, bringing war and destruction to its enemies, as these people were of a highly aggressive, domineering nature.  They were also gigantic in proportion, being some 70 to 100 feet in height, of massive build, since their primary planet, Marduk, allowed for the growth of larger bodies.

Marduk was destroyed in an attack led by enemies of the Empire.  For a short time, the damaged Mars served as a base, but then, it too was struck by enemies and destroyed, its ocean being flung into the skies and its atmosphere stripped away.  The tiny remnant of survivors from these disasters found their way to our Moon, which was an ancient hollowed out alien base, and finally landed upon Earth itself.  There the rattled survivors suffered more losses in the destruction of their cities, pursued still by their relentless enemies.  With the fall of Atlantis and other bases, the remaining survivors lost much of their remaining technology, but with their superior mental abilities and highly aggressive natures, still managed to bring great portions of humanity under their control…  And so this tenuous balance over humanity has remained until now…

These people remember and revere their past even as they deny us the knowledge of our own.  Such is their contempt for the masses of humanity.  Such is their hubris in their utter belief in their right to rule and control.

Yet in the end, energy seeks balance and so all that has been denied and taken away will be returned to the rightful owners of this world, the indigenous populations.  And this lovely planet will take her rightful place in the panoply of worlds.

This water planet that is our home is located in a highly coveted piece of real estate on the edge of the galaxy.  It is also located next to a huge portal or Stargate (yes, they do exist) that allows for instantaneous travel from one galaxy to another across the entire Universe.  As a result, this area of space has been fought over for millions of years.

Long, long ago, a highly advanced race of beings called the Ancient Builder Race, constructed the stargate system, connecting up solar systems and galaxies, so that neighboring civilizations could trade and exchange with each other.  Since our local star cluster, including the constellations of Sirius and Andromeda and others, was highly sought after, the Builders also designed a highly advanced defense system made up of artificial moons, much like the Death Star as presented in the Star Wars series.  This defense system was designed to keep out negative races from entering or threatening the protected solar systems.  However, the Builders, being of a positive nature themselves, did not understand the determination and technological cunning of some of the negative races, who did, after some millions of years, managed to penetrate and eventually take down the defense shields of these artificial moons.

Our world and others became open and vulnerable to the attack and conquest by these negative polarity races and thus, many civilizations have come and gone from the face of the Earth, most hidden by the great cyclic catastrophes that overtake the planet due to the periodic light surges from our Sun.  By fire, flood and earthquake have many the great cities and kingdoms been destroyed.  So humanity has returned to a child-like state numerous times, forgetting their past, except for the vague messages left by unknown ancient ancestors upon stones strewn across the face of the planet.

The Guardians have returned.  They have been known by other names, such as the Ra collective, who presented the Law of One series, which can be found free online.  A sixth density and positively oriented race, they are here to assist, guide and work with us as our world undergoes this hour of testing and trial.  Be guided by your high heart and divine mind as you are presented with challenges to overcome, as well.  Seek salvation in following the guidance given forth by the great sacred teachers of humanity.  In their words there are the keys to heaven… the heaven that exists within your own heart.

Step clear of the need to judge those who have killed, tortured and denied humanity their divine inheritance, for their time of judgment has arrived.  They are judged by the content of their own hearts, that denies the existence of goodness and kindness towards one’s fellow creatures, whether sentient beings or the planet itself.  All life is sacred.  All life comes from love.  When one turns away from love, one dies inside.  Seek the warmth of the Sun, the sun that will unite you with Higher Self and carry you on the winds of heaven to ecstasy and bliss.  It is never too late to return to balance, for those who watch over us love us well and without condition.  And they are here, beside us, at every moment of decision.  You are not and never have been alone.  Seek and you will find what you need within, for within your own DNA rests the knowledge of the Universe.

Blessings and love to all,

The Ascension Mysteries




Eliza Ayres:  A review of the newest book by David Wilcox, The Ascension Mysteries

David Wilcox is an author of two best seller books, The Synchronicity Key and The Source Field Investigations.  He is also a professional lecturer, filmmaker, researcher into ancient civilizations and extraterrestrial influences on our planet.  David has had an extensive online presence on his website,, and is a regular guest and consulting producer on the History Channel’s top show, “Ancient Aliens”.

David has just completed a new book, The Ascension Mysteries, which should be coming out at the end of August 2016.  It was with some surprise that I received an email from Emily Brock, an editor with Penquin Books / Random House Publishers.  Ms. Brock was inquiring as to whether I would like to review Mr. Wilcox’s latest book.  A week and half later, I have finally completed my read through and will attempt to write a short review… without giving away all the juicy bits.

The first half of the book consists of a re-telling of David’s own personal journey and experiences, much of which drew him to finally align to the path of Ascension, primarily through his extensive work researching the unknown and suppressed history of our planet.  David shares his struggle with addiction to smoking marijuana and his difficulties with being bullied by friends and acquaintances for most of his younger years until finishing college.

Despite his difficulties, David had (and has) strong psychic abilities and has maintained a dream journal for years.  He also started doing personal readings with beings that later identified themselves as the Guardians (or Ra).  David kept journals of all his contacts, through dreams and readings, through the years and have discovered profound and sometimes startling correlations and synchronicities existing between events and people who have shown up in his life.

For some years, David has been in contact with insiders who are part of a secret space program run by our government since the 1940’s.  David explains the whys and how of these contacts thoroughly in his book.  As a young person, he also became aware that there were sinister forces present that were actively suppressing and controlling humanity.  He was determined to find out the secrets behind these unseen entities.  What he has found over the years is startling… yet goes far to explain the significant inconsistencies present in archaeological findings all over the world… as well as who is behind the secret government that REALLY runs the world.

In his research, David has also delved into spiritual books including the The Law of One series, and many others that he notes in his new book.  Using what he has learned from insiders within the secret space program (SSP) and what he has discovered in his extensive reading of over 300 books, David has discovered a secret that our erstwhile controllers have attempted to prevent us from becoming aware:  namely that at some as yet undetermined date, our Sun would send forth a great surge of energy that would trigger a mass Ascension event on Earth.  Stories, legend, myths and still existent writings from 24 different ancient civilizations, as well as the research of scientific insiders have supported the existence of a cyclical “event” that comes with the ending of a Great Year, the 25,920 year cycle of the precession of equinoxes.

Further, David presents findings that establish the real origin of our global elite, where they came from, how they ended up on Earth and what they have been doing for 55,000 years to keep control over the planet and its human population.  I’ll let you read the book!

And if that’s not enough, David has learned that our secret space program has gone outside the solar system and has bases on several asteroids and moons, including the Moon.

For you fans of the Star Wars movies and books, David has more revelations.  One big one is that Star Wars did happen… here… not in a galaxy far, far away.  Who and what was involved?  Well, you’ll have to read the book.  Remember the Death Star?

Then there are revelations of so-called extraterrestrials that are currently living on Earth or one some of the other planets, moons or large asteroids within our Solar System.  The personnel of the SSP have been in contact with over 50 species of humanoids.  And the present space program was originally started by the Germans long before World War II, with the help of the Draco, a negative extraterrestrial race.

If you’re like me, an avid fan of science fiction and fantasy since I learned to read, you devoured television series and movies like that of Star Trek, Stargate (SG-1, Atlantis, and Universe), as well as the many books published through the last decades of the 20th century.  Now it appears that certain secret information has been leaked to authors, writers and producers through the years… to disclose out in plain sight some of the “secrets” encountered by the SSP, including technological advances.

Recently I revisited the Stargate SG-1 series, watching it on my laptop.  I was drawn to the information contained within the stories about the Asgard, the Stargate system, Ascension… as well as many of the technological innovations that the Americans were able to make by using back-engineered alien technology… something that our secret government and others have been doing for years.  Where do you think computer chip technology, cell phones, and other technological advances have come from?

The stargate system is real; it exists.  What’s more, our engineers and scientists have created one of their own.

The second half of David’s book contains a ton of information, carefully gathered and cross-checked with several insiders.  If you’re not aware of David’s work or a fan of science fiction, a bad case of cognitive dissonance might set in… meaning you will not be able to believe what you read.  Since I’m aware of David’s work and have come in contact through other means of some of the information contained therein, I didn’t have much difficulty in taking in the vast quantity of data contained within… Yet, the book is easy reading, so don’t fret.  It is primarily geared towards the spiritual community, at least those who are curious about the motives and origins of the global elite and their erratic tactics, as well as learning about much of what has been suppressed by the elite, as it would give away their ability to control us.  The global elite, which are in reality a very small group, although extremely powerful, depend on secrecy to retain their control on world events, international finance and banking and corporate interests.

David considers this latest book to be a prequel to the ones previously published.  He recommends that newcomers read them in this order: The Ascension Mysteries; The Source Field Investigations, and finally, The Synchronicity Key.  David will be writing more works as he is still active in collecting information.  Currently working with a relative newcomer, Corey Goode, David is also presenting much of his newest findings online and during lecture tours.  It is paramount that David share this information as openly as possible as he and others have received death threats on more than one occasion.  It is apparent that the elite or Illuminati do not want this knowledge reaching the ears of the general population.

While a great deal of scientific information is presented in this book, it is easy to read.  Also, in keeping with the title, the book is about Ascension.  There are secrets about the genetic make-up of the human race that are beginning to come out.  We are far more powerful than we realize.  And we live in a Universe that supports Ascension.  Those people who are of a forgiving and gentle nature have nothing to fear about the upcoming light surge from the Sun; those who are of a negative nature do.  David presents some of what he found in his extensive reading, his study of the Law of One series, his own dream work and readings, correlating with the information shared by various insiders within the SSP… enough to establish that Ascension is real and will happen… soon.

Being a printing proof, my version of The Ascension Mysteries did not contain any photos, so after seeing a video of the 2015 lecture that inspired the writing of this book, I’ve decided to include a link to the video below for those readers who might be curious to see what information is touched upon.  It can be overwhelming at times, so take a break if you need it.  There is a lot to get caught up on…

I can highly recommend this book and the rest that David has written.  His writing style is very approachable and he is very knowledgeable about his topics, having done a great deal of research through the years.  As mentioned before, David also maintains a website,, and with Corey Goode has been presenting a series of lectures on, a subscription channel.  Do keep an open mind and prepare to be startled by at least some of what you read.

Thanks for reading this review; my first one!

Eliza: Reaching the Silence Within



Eliza:  Reaching the Silence Within

With some soothing music from the Lord of the Rings in the background, I am cooling off from today’s little hikes in Graham Swamp Preserve.  Living in a temperate subtropical forest near the beach allows me the opportunity to go walking pretty much every day, except when there is a thunderstorm, tropical depression… or the rare hurricane.  In the short time that I’ve lived in Florida, I’ve managed to get more daily exercise than any other place in which I have lived.  Although my present physical condition is not quite enough to take on big mountains, I can manage a nice mild four-mile walk without much effort, for which I am grateful.  My health upon leaving Washington State wasn’t the greatest and I can see an improvement now.

Having so much free time now, even with my artistic creations and walks, I have done a lot of reading of a variety of books.  I’ve been concentrating lately on “The Sophia Code” by Kaia Ra, which offers meditations and downloads from an assortment of Ascended Lady Masters, including Isis, Hathor, Mother Mary, Mary Magdalene, Green Tara and White Buffalo Woman.  The codes received through doing the meditations free up or activate your crystalline DNA, allowing for a greater sense of Self to develop through time.  I’ll have to re-read the book, as well, to simply begin to assimilate the knowledge and wisdom contained within it.

Three other books that I am also assimilating have been written by Robbie McKenzie, “Metatron: This is the Clarion Call”, “This is the Healing Book” and “The Galactic Counsel, Part I”.  These books are meant to be utilized by workbooks as they contain some very dense material, activations, downloads and meditations to activate your MerKaBa or Light Body.

And then a week or so ago I was contacted by an editor at Random House, the publisher for “Ascension Mysteries”, the latest book in a series by David Wilcox.  For some unknown reason, I was chosen to review this volume, so I’ve been plowing through the 25 chapters.  This book contains new information relating to the secret space program or SSP that our nation and others have been building since the 1940’s.  This information will be startling to those who are not familiar with David’s work… but I’ve been following it for years.  And I’ve long been a fan of various works of science fiction and fantasy, so it doesn’t take much for my imagination to be able to incorporate some of this newest and somewhat startling information.  I must say that David is very thorough with his research, endeavoring to establish his facts, cross-checking with several of his inside sources before actually releasing the information on the Internet.  And even then, David withholds some of the information as it is just too…

Circumstances and my “retirement” have given me the opportunity to really concentrate on my awakening and activation, embodying lighter densities.  Since my physical body is much older, it is taking longer to get “results” I still feel that any effort on my part is worth it.  I have much to work on towards purifying and “lightening” up my diet… although I find I can’t eat much in the way of even chicken or turkey any more… and haven’t touch “meat” for some time.  The Metatron books stress that the light body activation is assisted by a lighter diet… moving from vegetarian to vegan, to raw vegan, juicing and fasting… and then to living on light.  It is not a process that should be rushed as you can damage your body if you just stop eating without the proper preparation.  I’m lucky that I already eat a lot of fruit and have been adding more vegetables.

I’m not sharing this information about diets to suggest that anyone MUST eat this or that.  I have had to eat heavier foods while I was still working at the prison, in order to manage the denser vibration there.  Now that I’ve let go of that job, I’m eating more lightly as it feels more “right” to me.  I eat when I’m hungry.

Pure water is also essential for cleansing the body so it can hold “light”.  Obtaining “pure” water these days is a challenge, as even most bottled waters contain unwanted ingredients like fluoride.  I’ll have to dig out my water filter from the remaining stuff in my storage unit.

The intention to concentrate on my ascension, through meditation, activations and downloads, cultivating peace, utilizing my creativity, sharing my journey… is a daily process for me now.  We truly create our own world each moment.

Well, enough for now.  I’m not feeling particularly profound and just a bit tired out from the heat, so I will switch to finalizing my reading of “Ascension Mysteries” so I can write my review.

I hope and pray that all will be able to sail through the upcoming eclipses and equinox season with grace and ease.

Journal Entry 08.22.2016



Journal Entry 08.22.2016 – Swamp Walk

One thing that Florida has in abundance besides oranges and sunshine is swamps.  Today I visited one of the nearby remaining swamps, Graham Swamp, which sits between Palm Coast Parkway and Moody Blvd. (SR 100).

I started at the northernmost trail head, 1.25 miles south of Palm Coast Pkwy, on the left.  The actual trail is a coquina and boardwalk trail, but I found myself drawn to some more casual trails encircling some nearby ponds that led me deeper into the swamp itself.  The interior, at least the part that I reached on my little adventure, is piney – oak and hardwood woods, filled with a variety of vegetation.  The trails, such as they were, were grassy, sandy and matted with layers of forest duff.  I was completely alone, although not far from “civilization” as road noise from busy Old King’s Hwy. managed to filtrate through the forest cover.

After exploring three ponds, I wound my way back to the “real” trail and followed it for a ways, traveling in a northerly direction, paralleling Old King’s Road.  I decided that I had enough of the boringly wide coquina trail and headed back to the car.  Coquina is a locally available building material consisting of crushed shells that is brownish orange in coloration.  It is used in landscaping and was used to build houses and other edifices in old Florida.  It is a durable soft limestone.


Next I drove to the other Graham Swamp Preserve Trailhead, off of Colbert Lane.  This is a 2.2 mile trail, moderate in difficulty, with some mild ups and downs over roots, ancient middens and the occasional fallen pine.  The trail parallels Colbert Lane, winding gently up and down the ancient sandy dunes.  There is also a very challenging cross-country bicycle trail, 4.7 miles in length that winds up and down parallel to the walking trail.  On Colbert Lane, bike trails connect up with the Lehigh Trail and other trails leading to Flagler Beach and parts of the City of Palm Coast.

The day was getting hot and I was getting faint in the humid heat, so I finished only a portion of the more rugged trail today, but will go back when the weather gets a little cooler… in a couple of weeks.  I had one wildlife sighting today: a racoon that scrambled up a large oak tree and out of sight of my photo lens.

Here are some  more photos taken on today’s walks…




The last photo is of Beauty Bush, a beautiful native plant.

It’s another scorcher today, with temperatures reaching into the mid-90’s and high humidity.  Best to stay cool and continue reading “Ascension Mysteries” by David Wilcox… I’m reviewing it pre-publishing!  Stay tuned for my written review.

Love and blessings to all,
