ST. MALACHI OF ARMAGH:
St. Malachi was an Irish cleric who lived in the later half of the 12th century. Towards the end of his life he had a dream in which he saw each of the remaining popes of the Roman Catholic Church. At the time that he had the dream he foresaw that there would be 112 popes from the time of Celestius II (1143) until the last pope. The last pope was Peter the Roman, who would preside over the break-up and the destruction of the Catholic church. We are then invited to follow the time-line and watch it to see whether this is what happens or not.
The last three popes will be those of the “Supreme Tests”.

Peter the Roman. Final Final
What St. Malachi has then gone on to say is that under De Gloria Olivae times would be fairly good, but not for very long, then when Peter the Roman takes over he will be the final pope for the Roman Catholic Church. He will be seduced by the anti-Christ and won’t have a firm belief in God such as we currently have with John Paul II. Apparently his ideals won’t be as firmly held and he will be corrupted. What will then happen is that Rome will be destroyed during the course of his papacy and he will have to move the church from Rome to some other location. The church will fall into moral decline under his rule and eventually break up. This is something that we would probably expect to foresee in the next 25 to 30 years.
Comment: We won’t know the validity of these predictions until time has passed.
Everybody knows of him. He was a French doctor who wrote his quatrains in the later part of the 16th century. The quatrains were visions that he had of the future running ahead to the year 7,000. They were all written in very arcane and abstruse terms and not in any chronological order. They’ve been proven in many respects to be true, or to be validated, but often not until after the event, simply because of the flowery nature of the language and the often highly allegorical way in which they are written.
What did he predict?
He predicted the date of his death, and the time and circumstances under which his skeleton would be rediscovered. He also foresaw the Great Plague of London, the Great Fire of London, and the blitzkriegs of London during World War II.
What’s in store?
Nostradamus predicted a massive conflict between good and evil in the earlier years of the 21st century. He predicted the emergence of a third anti-Christ - Napoleon and Hitler are thought to be the first two. The conflict will be a religious war between good and evil. The ultimate destruction of most of the world as we know it will take place during the course of this war. Ultimately, after great disasters and a massive decline in the world’s population, a new order based on peace and mutual brotherhood will be established.
We can’t ignore the relevance of a lot of what Nostradamus says. In support of this I quote from some of his quatrains that may well describe what’s happening at the moment. He seems to predict the coming of a great King of Terror in July of 1999:
“In the year 1999 and seven months
From the sky will come the great King of Terror.
He will bring back to life the King of the Mongols;
Before and after, war reigns.
“This king will enter Europe wearing a blue turban.
He is one that shall cause the infernal gods of Hannibal to live again.
He will be the terror of mankind.
Never more horror.”
He further goes on to talk of a decline in moral standards and their replacement with a more amenable set of social values:
“The Moorish law will be seen to fall
followed by another that is more pleasing
Boristanis will be the first to fall.”
He then comes chillingly close to the facts of 9/11 in New York.
Below is a collage of four of Nostradamus’s quatrains that appear to pertain to the events of 9/11. The collage consists of lines from quatrains 1-24, 6-97, 9-92, 10-72, and 10-74: “IT APPEARS NOT FAR FROM THE GREAT MILLENNIAL AGE,FIRE APPROACHES THE GREAT NEW CITY,THE BIRD OF PREY ARRIVES AND OFFERS ITSELF TO THE HEAVENS,AT 45 DEGREES THE SKY WILL BURN,INSTANTLY A HUGE SCATTERED FLAME LEAPS UP,A GREAT SLAUGHTER, TERROR,KING TO BE OUTSIDE, HE WILL STAY FAR AWAY,THROUGH HIS ENEMIES THEY WILL ARRIVE TO SUBDUE IT,AFTERWARD, THE NEW CITY CONTEMPLATES A CONDEMNATION,BEFORE AND AFTER, WAR TO REIGN BY GOOD FORTUNE,WHEN THE BURIED COME OUT OF THEIR GRAVES.” [From the website of the Nostradamus Society of America]
We can study Nostradamus’s quatrains, but we often don’t know how they were put together or what they will mean. However there is, over the last 400 years or so, an un-nerving correlation between some of the things that he has predicted and ultimate events.
Edgar Cayce was an American humanitarian who lived in the earlier years of the 20th century, and who died in 1945. Cayce was a fine example of a man who devoted his life to the service of others and sacrificed himself for the well-being of other people. His calling in life was simply to help others and he was empowered with psychic abilities because of this. His psychic abilities enabled him to heal people and also to predict personal futures as well as broader scenarios which would affect the American people and the people of the world.
Again, he had a fairly accurate track record. He successfully predicted the outcome of World War I and World War II, the financial crash of 1929, the emergence of India as an independent nation in 1948, and the creation of the state of Israel. He predicted the deaths of Presidents Rooseveldt and Kennedy and also the occurrence of racial unrest in the U.S.A. in the ‘60s. He also predicted the date of his death, the 5th of January, 1945.
His predictions for the future are many and manifold but also very frightening. At the more local level he predicted that China would one day become a future cradle of Christianity, and that Communism, although not the kind of Communism contemplated by Russia, would ultimately be adopted as a workable Socialist philosophy throughout the world. This, he said, was well into the future. More immediately, he predicted two things which are of immediate relevance and neither of which gives us much cause for comfort. The first prediction he made was that there will Third World War, and by implication it will be a religious war involving Muslims and non-Muslims. The words that he used were: “Strifes will arise through the period. Watch for them near the Davis Strait in the attempts there for the keeping of the life line to land open. Watch for them in Libya and in Egypt, in Ankara and in Syria, through the straits about those areas above Australia, in the Indian Ocean and the Persian Gulf.”
In conjunction with this, his second prediction was a melting of the poles. He predicted that much of the earth’s surface would then be submerged and that this process would be complete by the end of the 20th Century. I quote from a book written about his prophecies:
“(But Cayce’s most striking predictions - particularly in view of many other prophecies relating to the approaching end of the millennium - concern dramatic changes in the Earth’s surface in the period 1958 to 1998. The cause of these he put down to a tilting in the Earth’s rotational axis which he said would begin in 1936.)
“The first sign of this change in the Earth’s core would be the “breaking up of some conditions” in the South Pacific and “sinking or rising” in the Mediterranean or Etna area. Cayce forecast that, by the end of the century, New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco would be destroyed. He said that “the greater portion of Japan must go into the sea” at this time, and that northern Europe would be “changed as in the twinkling of an eye.” In 1941, Cayce predicted that lands would appear in the Atlantic and the Pacific in the coming years, and that “the coastline now of many a land will be the bed of the ocean. Even many of the battlefields of (1941) will be ocean, will be the sea, the bays, the lands over which the new order will carry on their trade as with one another”.
“Watch New York, Connecticut and the like. Many portions of the east coast will be disturbed, as well as many portions of the west coast, as well as the central portion of the United States. Los Angeles, San Francisco, most of all these will be among those that will be destroyed before New York, or New York City itself, will in the main disappear. This will be another generation though, here; while the southern portions of Carolina, Georgia, these will disappear. This will be much sooner. The waters of the Great Lakes will empty into the Gulf of Mexico.”
(Cayce prophesied that the Earth’s axis would be shifted by the year 2001, bring on reversals in climate, “so that where there has been a frigid or semi-tropical climate, there will be a more tropical one, and moss and fern will grow.” By this time, he indicated, a new cycle would begin.)”
Any observer would be quick to point out that Cayce has so far got it wrong because neither his prediction of a religious war, nor his prediction of the flooding of the earth have taken place by the dates which he has suggested, i.e. the end of the 20th century. If this was the case?! we’d all be speaking from a submarine at the moment! But the trends appear to be in place. An interesting point that he made to the child of one of his patients in 1943, (at this time the child was six years of age,) was that the child would live to see a religious war in his lifetime. This is happening now I think, in what one can see with what’s happening in the Middle East and increasingly with what’s happening in Afghanistan. Hence the predictions that he has made about a World War III may well be well founded. Also, if we look at the extent to which glaciers are caving, in the Antarctic and the effects of global warming are beginning to manifest, there may be more than an element of truth in what he was saying about the poles shifting and the seas rising. Luckily enough, these predictions haven’t been fulfilled at this stage, but they may well be throughout the course of the next 50 to 100 years.
The Vishnu Puranas are a piece of ancient Indian literature which talks of the lines of kings of India over a very long time. It speaks further of the Hindu Yugas or Ages which total 4.32 million years in all. There are four Yugas, and we are currently just entering the Kali Yuga or most material of these Yugas. We are some 5,000 years into the Kali Yuga at this stage. The elements of the Kali Yuga are that it’s an extremely materialistic time. It is a time which sharpens a person’s resolve to return to Spirit if they’re inclined that way, or which bans them to a life in hell if they don’t take this point and live accordingly. The times are marked by great selfishness and insensitivity and an obsession with short-term pleasures, the gratification of the senses, and of a need to acquire and possess and maintain material things. Perhaps the best way to describe the conditions in the Kali Yuga would be to quote from the Vishnu Puranas themselves and I do so now:
“These and all the contemporary kings will be of churlish spirit; violent temper and always addicted to falsehood and wickedness. They will destroy women and cows; they will seize upon the property of their subjects, will be of limited power; they will rapidly rise and fall; the duration of their life will be very short; they will form high expectations and acquire very little piety.
The people of these countries, they will rule over, will imbibe the same nature. And the barbarians being powerful under royal patronage will destroy the subjects. Wealth and virtue will decrease day by day until the whole world will be depraved. Wealth will be the test of pedigree and virtue; passion will be the only tie of marriage; falsehood will be the only means of success in litigation; and women will be merely the objects of sensual gratification. Earth will be respected for its mineral treasures, sacrificial thread will be the only test of a Brahman; external marks will constitute the only distinction of orders and wickedness will be the only means of livelihood. Weakness will be the cause of dependence; menace will be the cause of learning: gifts only will constitute virtue; wealth will be the only sign of honesty: simple ablution will be purification; mutual consent will be the marriage; a man wearing good clothes will be considered honest and water at a distance will be considered a holy spring. When the world will be thus sunk in faults, he, who will be the strongest amidst those castes, shall be the king. They will grow avaricious and the subjects, unable to bear the burden of various taxes, will take refuge amongst the valleys of the mountains and will be glad to feed upon wild honey, herbs, roots, fruits, flowers and leaves: their only covering will the be bark of trees and they will be exposed to the cold and wind and sun and rain. No man shall live more than three and twenty years. Thus in the end of the Kali Yuga most of human-kind will be annihilated.
Thus when the ceremonies of the Vedas and the institutes of the law shall nearly have ceased, and the end of the Kali Yuga will approach, a portion of that divine being, who is the creator of the whole universe, preceptor of the mobile and immobile, who is the beginning and end of all, who is at one with all, who is identical with Brahma and all created beings, shall incarnate himself on earth. He will be born in the family of Vishnuyasas, an eminent Brahman of Sambhala village as Kalki gifted with the eight superhuman faculties. By his irrepressible power he will slay all the Mlechchhas and thieves and all those who are addicted to sins. His greatness and mighty shall be unobstructed.
He shall again establish virtue on earth and when the Kali Yuga will completely close, the remaining people shall be awakened and their minds shall be as pure as crystal. The people thus purified shall be the seeds of human beings and shall procreate a progeny who shall follow the laws of Krita-age. A verse is recited regarding this - ‘When the sun, moon, and the lunar asterism Tishya and the planet Jupiter are in mansion the Krita age shall come back.”
The great Hindu Masters have pointed not only to a short-term period of unrest and decay, but to a much longer term one of which our current age is only a very minor part. This would also suggest that most of mankind, if it does not realise it’s spiritual source and purpose in life, will be annihilated or destroyed during the course of the Kali Yuga and mankind will have to reincarnate in cycles of relevance and future Yugas, rather than moving upwards in search of his godhood.
THE VISIONS OF FATIMA:
These are a series of visions granted to three children in Fatima, Portugal over a five-month period in the later half of 1917. All these children are now dead, although the last one survived until, I think, the 1960s.
Three secret messages were given. Firstly, mankind at the time was following a path of sinful rebellion that would lead millions to an eternity in hell. Secondly, the beginning of World War II was predicted, at the beginning of the 1930s. In conjunction with this there would be a widespread decline in spirituality was predicted, both during and after World War II. Thirdly, the last vision was kept secret, but left in written form with the Vatican in 1944, and made public in 1960. It concerned the military and political dangers that would affect the world towards the end of the 20th century.
The last vision itself was in three parts. These are:
(1) There would be an increase in physical catastrophes, i.e. wars, floods, earthquakes and volcanic activity.
(II) There would be a massive loss of faith in God, coupled with a devastating war which would bring mankind to the verge of extinction.
(III) This war could be averted if the Pope published the warnings of the Fatima vision and consecrated Russia to Virgin Mary rather than to God as is required under the tenets of the Catholic church. Pope John Paul II has come some of the way towards accommodating these requirements. He does not appear to have averted the predicted outcomes, although he has attempted to acknowledge Mary.
Mother Shipton was born in Norfolk, England: (get correct date) in the 15th century, and approximately 100 years before Nostradamus. She died in the 16th century to the best of my understanding. Her predictions were delivered in poetic form and were uncannily accurate. Some thirteen of her prophecies have been fulfilled and I list some of these for example:
She predicted the Great Fire of London, the readmission of Jews to England, radio, telephone, television, and the internet, submarines, trains, cars and motor vehicles, the development of iron ships and of mechanised agriculture, aeroplanes and space travel, tunnels through hills, the widespread diffusion of learning, an inversion of traditional sexual roles, the loosening or untethering of morays and morals, and the discovery of gold in undiscovered lands - Alaska and Australia. All these events took place some four to five hundred years after she had made the predictions of them.
Her predictions for the future are again rather unsettling. These are given in her entitled The Omen of the Dragon, and I quote from this:
“A fiery dragon will cross the sky
Six times before this earth shall die.
Mankind will tremble and frightened be,
For the sixth heralds in this prophecy.
“For seven days and seven nights,
Man will watch this awesome sight.
The tides will rise beyond their ken,
To bite away the shores and then
The mountains will begin to roar;
And earthquakes split the plain to shore.
“And flooding waters rushing in–
Will flood the lands with such a din,
That mankind cowers in muddy fen,
And snarls about his fellow men.
“He bares his teeth and fights and kills,
And secrets food in secret hills,
And ugly in his fear, he lies,
To kill marauders, thieves and spies.
“Man flees in terror from the floods,
And kills, and rapes and lies in blood,
And spilling blood by mankinds hands,
Will stain and bitter many lands.
“And when the dragon’s tail is gone,
Man forgets, and smiles, and carries on,
To apply himself - too late, too late –
For mankind has earned deserved fate.
“His masked smile - his false graudeur,
Will serve the Gods their anger stir.
And they will send the Dragon back,
To light the sky - his tail will crack
Upon the earth and rend the earth;
And man shall flee, King, Lord, and serf.
“But slowly they are routed out,
To seek diminishing water spout,
And men will die of thirst before
The oceans rise to mount the shore…(and so on…)”
It’s hard to know what the dragon is; it might be Halley’s Comet. If that’s the case, then the sixth appearance since the time of Mother Shipton’s prophecies would have been the appearance of 1986, so that it may happen after the appearance of Halley’s Comet. What she’s saying isn’t very clear, but it seems to suggest to me that there will be some kind of massive geographic upheaval, it doesn’t talk about a war, it talks about a natural holocaust of some kind, being caused by the fiery dragon. It might be a meteorite hitting the earth. We don’t know what it is, but it may be a polar shift of the type even of the type that Edgar Cayce speaks about before, but whatever it will happen, it will have a massive impact on the shape of the Europe as we know it now, and probably a huge loss of life, but not everybody will die, and there will be a re-establishment of the new order of living.
Again, Mother Shipton concludes by saying that there will be a cleansing and a renewal of the earth and the people living on it and that a new civilisation will be established which emphasises much greater harmony and brotherly co-operation than has been the case prior to the holocaust.
Jean Dixon is a 20th century prophetess who made many of her predictions between 1930 and 1960.
What did she predict?
The death of J.F.K. by assassination, also the assassinations of Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy, the arrival of Communism in China, the re-election of President Truman who wasn’t thought to have had a ghost of a chance of winning in 1948, and the launching of the first sputnik. She also predicted that Japan would be a great economic power and this probably wouldn’t have been evident at the time she made her projections, which was in the ‘40s, and that’s another thing that she picked up on.
Her predictions for the future are similar to those of Nostradamus and St. Malachi. She predicts the emergence of an anti-Christ, a young man, by approximately the early 1980s, who will seduce the youth of the world into conforming to and supporting his ideology. He will bring about a new philosophy which will question Christianity and the established moral order. He will eventually come to hold the world entirely and everybody in it within his grasp. In short the world, because of it’s increased obsession with materialism and lose sight of it’s spiritual roots, and lay itself open for ideological manipulation. The third anti-Christ will do this and will again trigger a war which will bring the world as we know it to an end.
Jean Dixon went so far as to predict the birth date of the anti-Christ as being the 5th of February, 1962. She went on to say that his world influence would grow through the ‘80s and ‘90s, particularly in the U.S.A., and that he would be a creature of politics and accepted as a normal person in the American social milieu. He would go so far as to control the thought-processes of the world’s inhabitants by the 21st century, and he will attempt to destroy the world’s religions systems by subverting religious ideology. He will ultimately be defeated, but only at great cost to the earth’s population.
So that again we have this conflict of good and evil and, if you like, a Day of Judgement, together with massive suffering and the creation of a new order, the same kind of thing that the other prophets have been emphasising. She seems to have it wrong in the sense that it would all be over by now, and that the third anti-Christ would have been a public figure by this stage in the scheme of things. She doesn’t particularly appear to be referring to Osama Bin-Ladin, obviously because his approach is much different from the one postulated here, and also because he was born in 1957 and not 1962. The third Antichrist may still be to come. If it is, then it would have to happen in the next 20 or 25 years. So we can watch this with interest and keep an eye out for any people of Middle Eastern origin born on the 5th of February, 1962!
THE HOPI INDIANS:
The Hopi legends speak of a Great Spirit who created a pact with Mankind. The four races, red, yellow, black and white, were all parties to the pact. Each was given two stone tablets and told to hold and protect these. Each race had it’s own separate responsibilities to the world and each was told to live in harmony with each other. The racial responsibilities were allocated as follows:
The red races were the American Indians, and they lived in the east. Their role was the responsibility of the guardianship of the earth.
The yellow races were the Asians and lived in the south quarter of the planet. Their role was the guardianship of the wind.
The black races were the Africans and lived in the west. Their role was the guardianship of water.
The white races were the Europeans and lived in the north. Their role was the guardianship of fire, as in power and energy.
These tablets apparently exist. They are protected and have been observed by members of the Hopi tribe and others who are concerned with this kind of thing. The Eastern tablets are kept by the Hopi elders in Arizona, the Southern tablets by the Tibetans in Tibet, the Western tablets by the Kikuyu tribe in Kenya in Africa, and the Northern tablets are held by the Swiss in Switzerland. The Hopi Indian who wrote the article that I read has seen the American and African tablets.
The Hopi predictions are uncannily accurate and were made at least 10,000 years ago. They concern the world that we are living in now, and they start to take effect from the mid 1600s, the time when the Spanish conquistadors came to America. There are several stages in American history that are predicted by the Hopi tablets, and the outcomes for mankind associated with these are also given.
The first stage in the saga is the coming of the turtles. This describes the conquistadors marching across America with their armour on their backs.
The Hopi then moved to the early 20th century where they said that there would be a black ribbon that would come to cover America with bugs crawling all over it, and the ribbon would be shaken and the bugs would take to the air. This would be at about the time of the first great shaking of the earth that was World War I in the earlier years of the last century.
The Hopi then go on to describe the criss-crossing of the world by a cobweb upon which people would talk, the emergence of a tilted sign of life, (the Nazi swastika,) and the sun rising in the west, not in the east. This was of course the Japanese rising sun. At this time there would be a second shaking of the earth, which was of course World War II. Both shakings of the earth took place because man had not learned to live with his fellow man in the way that the Great Spirit required when the tablets were written, tens of thousands of years ago.
They then say that the saga will speed up at this stage and that there will be several other elements in it before the Great Outcome which will be a third world war. They talk of a falling of a gourd of ashes. I think this was the dropping of the A-bomb on Hiroshima in World War II. They then go on to say further in their projections that upon he who dropped the gourd of ashes, the gourd of ashes will later fall. This is significant for what might happen in America in the next 10 or 20 years. After this there would be established in a house of mica on the east coast of the land of the turtles, which is obviously the U.N. Building. The Hopi hoped to have some involvement with putting their beliefs before this forum. They weren’t allowed to do so at this time (1950s). They then decided that they’d have to communicate what they knew in English so that their beliefs would be conveyed to the world because they could see what was going to happen.
They went on to predict genetic engineering and sex-change surgery, to speak of an Eagle landing on the moon. Obviously here they were here referring to the successful Apollo mission of 1969. They predicted this as a time of great racial unrest in the U.S.A.. They went on to talk from here on of a decline in family ties, the hastening of the pace of life, and of families not having time for each other.
Then they came to their final prediction which was that a man-made house would be thrown into the sky. This I think refers to the joint American/Russian space station which was launched in 1999. They said this would mark the beginning of World War III and the third great shaking of the earth if mankind didn’t wake up to himself and listen to what they were saying. They said further that at this stage, upon he who dropped the gourd of ashes the gourd of ashes could fall. In particular, they suspected that there would be a lot of heavy bombing of the American agricultural regions of the north of the U.S. There would be a third world war which would start gradually but would ultimately involve all of mankind. Man would survive it but only in much smaller numbers. The world would then go on to a more harmonious existence where the wish of the Great Spirit that all four races could live in harmony would finally be fulfilled
WHAT IS THE THEORETICAL BASIS FOR PROPHESY?
These people over different points in time have come up with highly synonymous predictions, but is there really any sort of rational basis for how it happens and why it happens?
To answer this question I’ve looked at a chapter in a book on Edgar Cayce’s prophesies and also at some sections of the Secret Doctrine and H.P.B.’s Inner Group Teachings.
The answer to what causes prophesy lies in an understanding of the different planes of consciousness and of the concept of the cosmic elements. Aether is one of the seven cosmic elements and this is the binding element of the universe. Everything that happens is recorded in the aether but we’re not sufficiently receptive to be able to see it. Clairvoyants and others are able to do this. They are therefore able to read the future implications of the decisions that have made the behaviour that we have manifested. Having said that, I would like to quote from Edgar Cayce and Blavatsky to make my point and answer any questions you might have about this.
Cayce said we live in a three-dimensional time and space reality. Our perceptions are limited to this. However, the universe is a multi-dimensional reality and we unable to perceive all of it because of our limited conceptions of space and time. In other words, our reality is defined by space and time, rather that space and time being reality itself. Time is actually an eternal concept of past, present and future. All these are the same thing, i.e. time is simultaneous.
What does this mean for prophecy?
In order to understand the relationship between time and prophecy we need to divert to the concept of the Akasic record. There are seven cosmic elements but we are only able to perceive four of them with our senses developed as they are at the moment. As we develop spiritually, further of these elements will open to our perception. The cosmic elements are divine, spirit, aether, fire, air, water and earth. Divine spirit and aether can’t be perceived by us at this stage, but the concept of aether is important in the context of prophecy.
Aether permeates all planes of consciousness and is the fundamental compound of the universe. All that happens is recorded in it, and can be read by those whose consciousness is attuned to it. All of us are capable of this if we are able to put aside the bonds of ego and to attune ourselves to the universal consciousness. However, to do this we must use this information for the benefit of others or we will not be able to access it. This is what Edgar Cayce did.
The concept of Khama is also relevant here. We all understand the law of cause and effect. Suffice it to say that when actions are taken here on the earth, the consequences for good or evil are instantly recorded in the aether. These consequences then manifest later in time and space as we understand it.
We could conclude then that a sufficiently enlightened person can access the database in the aether by accessing the plane of consciousness in which it is stored, and can relay the information outlined therein. He or she can read the Akasic record, the storehouse of the causes and effects of the thoughts and actions of every living thing and thereby predict the future.
H.P.B. takes these concepts up in her book, in the Inner Group Teachings. She talks about the seven planes of consciousness, these being:
7 Atman - Divine
6 Buddhi - Spirit
5 (Manas - higher Mind
( - lower Mind
4 Prana - energy
3 Kama - desire
2 Astral - bodily sheath
1 Earthly - Earthly body.
She then goes on to elaborate on these planes of consciousness, saying that each has sub-planes within it. She only considers the two lowest planes of consciousness, that of the earthly body and the astral body, one and two here, for want of a better way to describe it, and talks about sub-planes within these. These are then illustrated diagrammatically below, so we’ve got the Prakritic or terrestrial plane and the astral plane here.
1/ 7 Atmic
Earthly 5 (Buddhi Manasic Subdivisions (planes)
Prakritic Sub-planes (Kama Manasic
1 Stula Sarira - Earthly body.
2/ 7 Adi = immediate post-life recall
6 Buddhi = artistic inspiration
Astral 5 Buddhi-Manas = Premonitions & glimpses into the past & future
plane. 4 Kama-Manas = Evil influences
3 Pranic - Serious delusion (DT’s)
2 Astralised Astral = Delusion.
1 Objective = Reversed images.
Each of these planes intermingles one with the other and each has it’s own message or convey and is the storehouse of it’s own information. What Blavatsky does is to talk about the significant features of the seven sub-planes of the Astral plane. Amongst these seven sub-planes the fifth sub-plane which incorporates information used in forecasting the future, and to some degree the future is embodied in that. Another sub-planes in the Astral is the seventh which is embedded with information that we access when we have our first and second deaths. This suggests that the behaviour that we manifest is being recorded in the Astral, because we can access it via subplane 2/5 and 2/7.
These planes intermingle, so that in the 7th subplane of the 2nd plane and in the 5th subplane of the 2nd plane, which is one of the higher subplanes of the Astral plane, we are able to access information recorded in the aether.
I have personal evidence of the possible existence of plane 2 sub 5 in a dream I had about a car accident which came true in 1975 (P.N.R. to briefly describe what happened here). This led me to believe that there’s some credibility in the fact that these sub-planes do exist and that it is possible to read the future. From the information in these subplanes, this information could be accessed by people of higher conscience and then relayed to others as prophecy.
H.P.B. in the Secret Doctrine Vol. 1, p. 115, talks about the interconnectedness of time in the same way that Edgar Cayce does and this would seem to suggest that the separation of events and time is a figment of our level of reality, in the fact that we can’t understand that things can be simultaneous, and that we can’t understand that this simultaneous phenomenon as we called it in the aether, can be accessed by people able to do it, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it doesn’t exist.
(Because past, present and future are one on these astral planes, predictions are always subject to change, if there’s been an instant response that takes time to work through you can always change that, if we know that that’s what’s happening, which is why you can decide to use something like that, you have some control over the future, but if you tend to think that the future’s pre-ordained or you don’t understand how you can change it through the quality of your consciousness and conscience, then it will happen!
H.P.B. in the Secret Doctrine (quote) “Connected as the Lipika are with the destiny of every man and the birth of every child, whose life is already traced in the Astral Light - not fatalistically, but only because the future, like the past, is ever alive in the present”.
“Akasa” is equal to Astral Light, Akasa is the binding element of the universe.
Takes the concepts that Cayce has articulated, i.e. that there is no such thing as time as we know it.
A number of propositions appear to be evident from what I’ve said.
Firstly that there will be a growth in the materialistic world philosophy and a derogation of spirit, that is a decline in religious and moral values. A number of the prophesies concur in this respect. They are The Vishnu Puranas (Kali Yuga) - Visions of Fatima, Mother Shipton, Jean Dixon, and the Hopi Indians.
The second proposition is that there will emerge a leader, the third anti-Christ, who will capitalise on this political sentiment in an effort to control the world for his own evil ends. (Jean Dixon, Nostradamus).
The third proposition is that there will be a massive conflict between the forces of good and of evil, with the forces of good winning out of those of evil, but only at huge cost to the human race and the planet itself. (St. Michael and Nostradamus, Edgar Cayce, Visions of Fatima, Jean Dixon, and the Hopi).
The fourth proposition: in conjunction with this there will be global changes, inundation of existing land-masses and the rising of new ones. There will be decline in the world’s population in conjunction with this. This should have happened by the end of the late 20th century. (Edgar Cayce and Mother Shipton.)
The final proposition is that after this massive disruption of the old order there will emerge a golden age in which those remaining on earth will live in far greater harmony with themselves and with the planet. (Edgar Cayce, Nostradamus, Mother Shipton, Jean Dixon, and the Hopi.)
POINTS FOR DISCUSSION: What can we do about this, individually.
