Back to this book; the idea was there but it wasn't quite worth the anticipation I had for it's arrival.

Patricia Cori, Lee Carroll and Tom Kenyon present more compelling evidence that there will indeed be an ascension of the consciousness of humanity around the year 2012 and they also provide practical ways to prepare for this momentous shift in vibration. In addition, they describe some of the ramifications attendant with such a profound transformation.
Another aspect of the work which I particularly enjoyed was the unexpected inclusion of some of the editor's personal psychic experiences, about which each author provides cogent insights.
I highly recommend The Great Shift for anyone wanting a glimpse of 2012, the years leading up to it and wanting a great read. Sheila Myers
If you are asking yourself a similar question, then you are exactly where you should be in the context of conscious evolution. For this is precisely the core message from this collection of channeled messages in The Great Shift: humans are undergoing an energetic shift from our lower energy consciousness to our inter-dimensional consciousness. Fear, ignorance, and dogma are our greatest hindrances from the numinous state (i.e. mystical experiences). The more we can dispel their illusory sense of control, the easier this transition will be for us personally and collectively. This does not mean that we don't keep our wits about us when delving into the unknown; in fact, author Lee Carroll suggests we create an imaginary box and toss any ideas or messages that don't seem right for us into it. He also suggests that we consider channeled messages simply as information from other states of consciousness.
The channeled messages in this book, from Kryon, The Hathors, Mary Magdalen, and The High Council of Sirius are positive and encouraging: "Their overriding message is to remind us to be fearless, noble, and loving--taking care to raise the vibration of our own bodies and minds so that we can shine our inner light out to the world that surrounds us."
People who resonate with this "lightworker" path are necessary to transcend--and transform--the world. For it is not just human consciousness that is shifting, but Gaia and cosmic consciousness as well: from fourth dimensional consciousness to fifth dimensional consciousness--outside of space and time. With or without us, we are told, this great shift is occurring, and we can choose to co-create it with strength, balance, and a higher vibration--or not.
From an intellectual perspective, I found the tone of some of the messages curiously outdated in some respects, and quite new-agey. I attribute this either to the filters of the channeler, the perception from the channeled beings that this is the general level of understanding, or that this material isn't channeled at all. For example, the old adage of "it's not what happens to you in life, it's how you respond to it" has been circulating for centuries. Perhaps there is hope that if we hear it enough times, we may finally get it.
Amidst messages about sound healing, empaths, crystal skulls, molecular structures, crop circles, terrestrial neighbors, Lemuria, Egypt, or the Akashic Records, there is another theme that emerges: the path to higher consciousness comes through our heart. "Find a way to live your life in joy and happiness," we are told. Not new information, just presented from a different context. So, perhaps it really doesn't matter if these are actually "channeled" messages; what matters is how we choose to live the self-evident truths contained within them.
Review by Julie Clayton
The writings of respected channeling authors are compiled to give us an update on how we are developing and what we need to do next to raise our vibrational level, our consciousness and continue our progress toward spiritual ascendancy.
Content is clear, stated in everyday dialogue. Patricia Cori's is a little more technical at some points which is appropriate considering the details of her topic area.
While reading this book you will hear from Kryon, Mary Magdalene, the Hathors and the High Sirian Council. That's a packed house.
The much talked about year of 2012 is positioned as a milestone of a new planetary and spiritual beginning and not so much of a physical event as other authors are now suggesting.
I enjoyed it, taking away some suggestions I had not considered prior.
The authors have extended their beliefs and their channelings for us to consider. Take it as a teaching, a guide and continued support for our current transitional experiences as humans.
This book's purpose is to help us better understand and face these changes.
Martine poses all the beings deep questions, and also reveals much about herself and her fascinating experiences.
In this volume Kryon talks about communication with our cells, our DNA, a little about the "neutral implant", "spiritual symptoms", Jesus on the cross and self-esteem, among other things. He tells us that it's going to be easier to connect to our Higher Self (the channelling took place a few years ago), and informs us of the numerology involved in the years 2009-2012. 2011 (corresponding to the number 4) will be a year of "reflection and preparation" for lightworkers. 2012 (the number 5) is the year of "the beginning of change for planet Earth". Every moment of every day we will be seeing an "evolving Humanity". We are closing in on our ability to change our own future and heal our bodies. We should not fear what is happening on our planet, the integration of God into our own life, nor the love of God, as we have an "enormous entourage of angelic beings" holding our hands. We are changing the vibration of the Earth. This is inspiring stuff, indeed, as is everything that comes from Kryon.
Tom Kenyon was new to me. I had in fact never even heard of him before. Judi Sion introduces us to Mary Magdalen and the Magdalen material presented in their book "The Magdalen Manuscript". This book is about the return of the feminine and urges us women not to be silent. We need to stand up and be counted and speak our truth, no matter what.
In the actual channelling Mary tells us a few things about her life with Yesha (her name for Jesus), and the order of the Temple of Isis, to which she belonged. Mary's mother was Egyptian, and when she was 18 Mary was sent to Egypt to be trained and initiated into the mysteries of the Egyptian Goddess, Isis. Isis is "a transcendent energetic expression of the feminine". Mary explains to us the difference between emanations and incarnations of Isis. Yeshua himself possessed a "clear, powerful emanation of the divine". He was a "mix of God and man".Mary discusses also the "impersonal power of the great mother/father god - creative potency - and the return of the Goddess "through each woman's heart and mind". This is stirring material.
Judi then introduces us to the Hathors, who are a group of 13 individuals from another Universe who speak through Tom, as one. He channels their healing sounds and music through his amazing voice, which spans nearly four octaves.
I must tell you that I found the Hathors' work to be immensely exciting and inspiring. They presented something called the Holon of Balance, a pyramid of light in the form of an octahedron that we can surround us with energetically for purposes of balancing our energies, more specifically the male and female aspects of consciousness. This technique is explained in detail and there is a drawing of an octahedron for those of us who don't know what it looks like. The Holon of Balance can be sent to places and persons in distress to "impart a balancing energy". On the other hand, we are exhorted not to "mess with other people's reality", since we all have a right to our own suffering. There is also a Holon of Immunity which we can use if we feel like we're getting ill.
I found the Holon of Balance, especially, to be quite complicated, it proving difficult for me to get my head round the octahedron, though others may well find it an easy technique.
On the other hand, another technique entitled "ecstasy of the heart" I found simple, wonderful and amazing. You focus on the physical heart while feeling gratitude or appreciation, whereupon energy flows throughout the body, causing cellular ecstasy. Immediately, a divine feeling arose in my heart, also in my heart chakra. I'm sure that the cells experience it as ecstasy. I carry out this technique for a few minutes at a time throughout the day - I've become addicted to it. For me this was the greatest gift of the Hathor channellings in the book, but they had much more to offer. (On Tom Hathor's web site you can hear 2-minute extracts from his healing CDs and after hearing a few of these my heart chakra felt like it had experienced deep healing and ached for two hours.)
To get back to the book and the Hathor channellings, we were informed of a special healing CD Tom Kenyon made to help those suffering from AIDS/HIV and cancer in Africa. It is called Immunity. He was asked to make it by a woman at a Sound Healer's Training and was then subsequently wakened from his sleep every night at 3 a.m. by the Hathors to do the work. Tom channelled the sounds/music from shamans, lamas, healers from ancient lands, alchemists and creator gods and goddesses from "diverse realms of consciousness". It was a deeply transforming experience for Tom to channel these beings.
It is a long time since I have received such a huge package of life-changing information as I have in the Hathor material in this book, if I ever have received so much before, which I doubt. And when I get hold of the CDs much more will hopefully occur.
The channellings of the High Council of Sirius are very familiar to me, since I've read several of Patricia Cori's books. The Council represents Sirians from the "ascended star system of Satais or Sirius B". There is a passage cited from "Atlantis Rising" about the Yzhnüni and the thirteen skulls, and the Council also discusses the Great Sphinx in Egypt, informing us that it did not originally have a human head, but that this change was effected to feed the ego of the pharaoh. We are told that beneath the Sphinx lies the Hall of Records in which are recorded "all the thoughts ever thought, all the words ever spoken and every sacred code ever encoded in the multi-dimensional universe". The archaeologists have investigated this area, this "sacred space", but have been unable to find anything. Everything is coded, and will be decoded by spiritual masters after the Shift.
Martine reveals that in a previous life she was one of the Keepers of the Alexandrian Library, which was destroyed by fire. But we are informed by the Speakers of the High Council that the works in the library were "imprinted, in a higher form, in the ethers" and thus were not really destroyed.
We are given information about the Vatican and Cori describes her work in Egypt in 2007. She is the guardian of one of the crystal skulls, Estrella, and was required to perform a ritual with it in the waters of the Osireion for purification purposes. Estrella spoke to her and her message is conveyed to us. Quite a lot of information about the skulls is revealed in the channellings, extraterrestrial visitors and crop circles also being discussed.
The Sirian High Council end their channellings with the admonition "Now is the time to remember who you truly are".
This book as a whole contains exceedingly valuable information, to my mind, regarding our spiritual development, in this unique period of transformation. All three channellers present marvellous information, but, as indicated above, my personal favourite is Tom Kenyon's Hathor material. The book would have been absolutely worthwhile and valuable, had it included only that. Martine Vallée is to be complemented for her excellent work in compiling this volume and for her insightful questions.
I strongly recommend that you read this book.
