SUMMER, 2009 (Vol. 3, Issue 1) FREE full-color version atwww.suncenterofphoenix.com
2012: Doomsday or New Day? 1Children of the Sun 1Hearts Center at Big Sky 1Sun Phobia 3
There's been a lot of speculation about what'sgoing to happen in 2012. Some people think that the sun will explode with massive solar flares that will hit the Earth and cause themagnetic poles to reverse and the physical poles to shift, resulting in tidal wavesthousands of feet high that will destroy most of mankind. Next November the movie
will be coming out in theaters. The trailer shows aTibetan Buddhist monk in a monastery on the peak of a mountain, ringing a warning bell. Inthe background you can see a tidal wavewashing over the Himalayas and eventually itreaches the monastery and destroys it. I don'tknow about you, but I don't plan on watching
when it comes out. It's a doomsdaymovie in the same vein as the movie
The Day After 
. The trailer sends the message that noteven the prayers of monks can turn back thetide and even their remote mountain retreatisn't safe. I don't buy it. Scientists predict thatthe solar max of 2012 will be worse than theviolent one of 2001, but it won't be the end of the world. It may disable satellites and disruptcommunication, transportation, power grids,the internet and even ATM machines. Also,violent weather disturbances, earthquakes andvolcanic eruptions may increase, and globalwarming, which is actually solar systemwarming may increase, causing the poles tomelt and coastal cities to flood. But it won'tcause cataclysm or incinerate the Earth asdepicted in another doomsday movie,
. It's easy for people to becomefearful about the sun and for movie producersto capitalize on that fear by twisting the facts, because the sun can be incredibly violentduring a solar max. The amount of energycontained in one solar flare is mind-boggling.The largest flare has as much energy as 100 billion Hiroshima size atomic bombs. Coronalmass ejections or CMEs are related to solar flares but contain up to 10 billion tons of gas plus a strong magnetic field. They do most of the damage. While the x-rays from flares reachEarth in about 8 minutes, CMEs can take oneto two days. Fortunately the Earth's ionosphereand magnetic field act as shields to deflect theX-rays and particles from the sun. Butsatellites and astronauts are vulnerable and powerful flares and CME can get through tocause power blackouts.Flares are associated with sunspots, which aredisturbances in the magnetic field of the sunthat are a result of a build up of tension.

“Rejoice in the Freedom of Elemental Life” isthe title of The Hearts Center’s 2009 WorldFreedom Summer Conference at the Big SkyResort in Montana. Conference activities beginon Sunday, June 28th with the beloved Hier-archs of Elementals and Meru University andconclude on Saturday, July 4th, with theFreedom Follies and messages from SaintGermain, Portia, Sanat Kumara and LadyMaster Venus.For early risers, mornings begin at 6:00 a.m.with sungazing and paneurhythmy. Beginningat 7:00 a.m. is the morning rosary, prayer andsong service which includes a HeartStream byone of the masters. After 8:30-9:30 a.m. breakfast, there is a morning session from 9:30a.m.-1:00 p.m. with presentations, workshops, prayers, songs and HeartStreams.
Lunch is at 1:00 p.m. The afternoon is familytime and recreation time for everyone withhiking, swimming, white-water rafting, tai-ji,volleyball, golf and funshops.Dinner is from 5:15-6:45 p.m. The evening program begins at 7:00 p.m. and includes presentations, prayers and songs andHeartStreams. Each evening concludes with prayers to beloved Astrea and Purity and to theViolet Fire.There are a number of options for lodgingduring the conference:The Huntley Lodge provides motel-typeaccommodations. The lodge is approximately a2-minute walk from the conference meetingroom.The Stillwater Condominiums, also very closeto our meeting room, offer the best situationfor families. These condos are verycomfortable, having full kitchens, fireplacesand an assortment of beds and convertible-couches for sleeping. The Lodging page of our website provides full details plus bookinginformation for making your reservations.For campers, the Red Cliff Campgrounds inthe Gallatin National Forest on the GallatinRiver is your best option. The campgroundsare just 25 minutes by car from the Big SkyResort. The campgrounds website is:http://www.bozemannet.com/bozeman_camping/redcliff.php. A conference meal plan with 3 meals a day can be found on the Registration page of thewebsite. You will find other meal options thereas well. As an example, you have the option of  purchasing meals by the day or purchasingspecific meals within each day.For those who would like to prepare their ownmeals, the rooms in the Huntley Lodge havesmall refrigerators and the StillwateCondominiums have full kitchens. It is best to bring your food with you as the options for  purchasing bulk food items at the resort areminimal or a distance away.A supervised two-night campout is being planned for the teens in the Gallatin NationalPark at the Red Cliff Campgrounds adjacentthe Gallatin River. These campgrounds areabout 25 minutes by car from the Big SkyResort. Additionally, an exciting program is planned for the teens each morning from 9:30to 1:00 p.m. and in the evening from 7:00-9:00 p.m. As each afternoon is free, it is the perfecttime for family activities.

2012 (continued)
What causes sunspots? Until recently, no oneknew for sure. Neither did they know why theyincreased to a peak every 11.3 years. Theheliophysics of sunspots was advanced by thework of Maurice Cotterell a mathematicianand physicist at Cranfield University. Cotterellhad access to satellite data that provided himwith information on how the Sun’s variousforces interact with each other. He comparedthe known speed of rotation at the Sun’sequator against the known speed of rotation atthe Sun’s poles.Because the Sun is a gaseous, fluid body, itmoves quicker at the equator, and slower at the poles. The satellite data confirmed that it takes25.75 Earth days for the Sun to make one fullturn at the Equator, and 37.176 Earth days for the Sun to make one full turn at the poles. Theresult of this difference in rotation is a twistingof the lines of force of the sun's magnetic field.Cotterell’s theory of sunspots, shared by manyother scientists, involves seeing the magneticlines of force on the Sun as though they were"rubber bands" being subject to twisting andintertwining. Some of these "rubber bands"would run North to South, and others East toWest. So, as the Equator spins at a faster speedthan the poles, so too will the vertical andhorizontal lines of magnetic force continue totwist and tangle up into each other like a giant braid. When the tension gets too high, there isa sudden snap, releasing the pent-up energy inthe form of flares and CMEs. The precursor tothis sudden release is a sunspot, which usuallyshows up in two nearby places at once. Thesetwo spots correspond to the two edges of thearc that is created when the magnetic, twisted braid of energy "bulges" out of the Sun.This image shows a typical sunspot pair. Eachspot is typically larger than the earth.This image shows a prominence or arm of  plasma that extends out beyond the sun andcan be ejected into space when the braid of magnetic energy snaps. It’s mostly hot gaseswith some iron.So every 11 or so years the number of sunspotsincrease to a maximum and at the peak of thecycle, they let loose with flares and CMEs.Cotterell also found that besides the 11-year sunspot cycle, there are longer cycles of 187years, 3740 years, and 11,000 years.Cotterell believes we’re at the peak of a major 11,000-year sunspot cycle. Sunspots have beenmore common in the past seven decades thanat any time in the last 9,000 years, accordingto a new historic reconstruction of solar 
activity based on carbon 14 analysis and theangular momentum of the large planets. Theamount of Carbon 14 in fossilized vegetationis inversely proportional to the intensity of solar activity because Carbon 14 is formed bycosmic rays, and flares and CMEs drivecosmic rays away from Earth. Angular momentum is the pulling effect of large planets like Jupiter and Saturn. Imagine thatyour the sun and Jupiter and Saturn are two buckets of water that you're holding as youspin around. If you hold your arms straight outfrom your sides the tension is balanced. But if you hold them out in front of you the pull isgreater.The last sunspot cycle, Cycle 23 was veryviolent.On April 2nd, 2001, solar flare number 9393 broke all records for brightness and strength,weighing in at the unheard-of -X-class of 22.This was literally off the scale. Themeasurement scale had previously only beendesigned to go to a maximum of 20. This flarewas considered the largest of its kind ever observed, earning it the name “mega-flare.” Itwas nearly three times more powerful than theMarch 1989 flare, which totally shut downQuebec's power grid, knocking out power tosix million people for 9 hours. The CMEassociated with flare 9393 had over 10 billiontons of plasma, about as much material as Mt.Everest and it was ejected at a speed of 11million miles per hour. If an X-22 levelmegaflare CME directly hit the earth, it wouldcause widespread power outages and disableand shorten the life of many satellites. For thehundreds of millions of people on the grid andwho depend on satellites for communicationand transportation, such an event would beinconvenient at best and life-threatening atworst.The next 11-year sunspot cycle, number 24,will be late but strong according to a newcomputer prediction model. The model provedto be very accurate when appliedretrospectively to the last eight solar cycles. It predicts that solar cycle 24 will be 30% to50% stronger than the last cycle. The modelaccurately predicted the beginning of SolaCycle 24. If its prediction about the intensityof Cycle 24 is just as accurate, we can expect alot more of the off-the-scale X classmegaflares and CMEs. So we need to be prepared - not for doomsday, but for living for awhile without power, transportation andcommunication. That’s the bad news. Thegood news is that solar cycle 24 may mark the beginning of a golden age.Cotterell compared the peaks and troughs of the sunspot cycle over thousands of years withthe rise and fall of civilizations. He found thathigh solar activity correlated exactly with arenaissance in the sciences, arts, literaturefreedom and spirituality. Low sunspot activityseemed to be linked with periodic ‘DarAges’. For example, there was virtually nosolar activity around 1400 to 1480 AD, whichwas the time of the Black Death, the beginningof African slavery in Europe, and theInquisition. This was followed by thediscovery of America and the Renaissance between 1500 and 1600 when there was a peak of solar activity. There were two peaks of solar activity between 600 BC and 400 BC. This wasthe time of Gautama Buddha, Lao Tzu,Confucius, Pythagoras, and Mahavira, the JainSaint who taught sun gazing. This was also thetime of the beginnings of democracy in Greeceand Rome and peace treaties between Athensand Sparta and Persia and her enemies.Going back 11,500 years to the end of the iceage, there was a huge spike in solar activityarounf 9,000 B.C. This was the golden age of the pyramid builders in the Americas andEgypt and the solar civilization in India under Rama and Vashishta.Thus, from this, Cotterell inferred that solar radiation somehow has an effect on humanconsciousness giving us greater creativity,intuition and insight to bring about a goldenage civilization. But he didn't know what thiseffect was. This effect is explained in anarticle published in the Spring, 2009 issue of the
Sun Gazette
called “The Hidden Reality of Sunlight.” It was written by Dr. MitchellGibson, a student of sungazing researcher Gene Savoy. You can read it atwww.suncenterofphoenix.com.So what's going to happen in 2012? Besdies aspike in solar activity, we know that the sunwill be crossing the galactic plane, while alsoclosely conjoining the central sun of thegalaxy. Such a galactic alignment happensevery 25,800 years, so physicists don't knowwhat the effects will be. But Omraam knew.He knew that the Earth would soon be enteringa region of space with a higher vibration andthe energies of Aquarius, and we would leavethe dark space of Kali Yuga.This is what he said “The Age of Aquarius willsoon be upon us and the tremendous upheavalsaccompanying it will oblige human beings tounderstand the reality of the invisible worldand the laws that govern it. But the beauty,splendour and harmony of the new life thatwill emerge from these upheavals will be beyond anything imagined by man. All thosewho have been secretly working for thecoming of the Kingdom of God throughout theworld will join forces and work together, andthe bastions of ignorance, materialism anddespotism will crumble and collapse. And itwill be: nothing can prevent the coming of thenew era, the new Golden Age.”So I'm not worried about earth changes andsolar flares in 2012. To me this is just the birth pangs of the
golden age, the passion and death before the resurrection. But that doesn't meanwe should just sit on our hands and wait for it.We need to be prepared for any emergency,while at the same time laying the groundwork for model sustainable communities of the HolySpirit that will be the foundation of a newsolar civilization. Each of us can be a pillar inthis foundation when we exhibit the qualitiesof the sun: unconditional love, brilliantwisdom and inexaustible strength. Becoming asun is also the key to surviving the Solar Maxof 2012.
For most of my life, I feared and hated the sun.This might sound shocking coming fromsomeone who is a strong advocate osungazing and a devotee of Omraam, a discipleof the sun. But it's true. During my teen andadult years up till age 55, I would avoidsunlight when I had to be outside, or wear sunglasses and sunscreen when I couldn'tavoid it. I think it was partly due to an incidentin my childhood in which I foolishly looked atthe sun through a telescope and scarred myright retina. My mother was horrified and toldme I could go blind from just looking at thesun with my bare eyes. I began wearingsunglasses, and a short while later I had tohave my eyes examined for prescription eyeglasses. I blamed the sun for my newnickname -- “four eyes.” Then there were the painful sunburns I suffered every summer. Adermatologist told me that I was especiallysusceptible to skin cancer because of the manymoles on my skin.How did I overcome my fear and loathing of the sun to begin sun yoga? It was easy. Myfear of dying from Leukemia was greater thanmy fear of the sun. But the encouragement Ireceived from other sungazers also helped me
