The 8:8 Transmission
My esteemed colleague Frank, over at Merovee (all are welcome) recently did a post that opened with reference to the 8:8 Gateway… also known as the Lions Gate Portal. For those of you not familiar with energetic portals or Ascension mythologies… Melanie Beckler, over at the Ask Angles website describes the 8:8 phenomenon thusly...
“Every year on and around the 8th day of the 8th month of the year (August 8th), there is a cosmic alignment called the ‘Lions Gateway.’ The Lions Gate is a time of increased cosmic energy flowing between the physical and spiritual realms. This astrological and spiritual gateway has roots that go back to ancient Egypt and for thousands of years has been observed and honored as a time of a great energetic influx and activation!
Astrologically, this gateway is marked by an alignment between the Earth and the star Sirius. As the star Sirius rises in the sky, Orion's Belt directly aligns with the Pyramid of Giza, and from our perspective on Earth, it appears that Sirius (the brightest star we can see) comes closer to the Earth.”
The Lions Gateway is so-named as it occurs when the sun is in the astrological sign of Leo (the Lion). As a Zodiac Sign, Leo is associated with the heart chakra (4th circuit) and represents the individualized expression of the Divine.
Coincidentally, a 28,000 year old mummified cave lion cub nicknamed Sparta was in the news this week. Unearthed in the Siberian tundra, Sparta is probably the best preserved Ice Age animal ever found, and is more or less undamaged apart from the fur being a bit ruffled. “She even had the whiskers preserved," said Love Dalen, a professor of evolutionary genetics at the Centre for Palaeogenetics in Stockholm, Sweden, and an author of a new study on the cubs.
Such syncs in our mediascape are always worth noting. That this little cub made the news cycle, just days before the 8:8 Lions Gate portal date, adds synchromystic relevance to the 8:8 phenomenon...
For many reasons, the 8:8 anomaly is an important transmission. It is foundational to the Tek-Gnostics mythology, in keeping with the time-honored, eight-faceted, Law of Eights. The octagonal nature of this structure aligns with myriad human systems, such as the Buddhist eight-fold path, the Taoist eight bagua, the musical octave, and of course, Dr Leary’s eight circuit model of consciousness.
Tek-Gnostics utilizes a variation of Leary’s model, which brilliantly integrates the Eastern Hindi and Tantric teachings with Western Psychology and Psychedelic inner exploration. The eight circuit model is expanded upon in book two of my Heresies Trilogy: Applied Tek-Gnostics.
On a personal note, and in my youth, I achieved my first successful ascent to the summit of Mount Shasta, located in northern California, USA… on August eighth, nineteen eighty eight (8/8/88). This was an incredible experience, undertaken on a extraordinary day. Incidentally (in the category of you can’t make this stuff up), although our group was quite large… only eight of us actually made it to the top.
In mountain climbing, the old Zen Koan describes the experience most succinctly…
“First there is a mountain… then there is no mountain… then there is!”
As many trekkers know… although it looms before you at the start of your climb, the mountain disappears when you reach the summit, only to reappear again when you get back to base camp. So too with the proverbial path to enlightenment. Magick.
As we all know, synchronicities are a-temporal phenomena. In the spirit of this important truth, on this most auspicious day… I will be synchronizing my 8/8/88 experience with today’s cosmic event. As time is an illusion, today’s date and my ascent of Shasta in nineteen eighty eight, occur simultaneously. Will wonders never cease!
So on this day… a day where the energies of Sirius and the Lions Gateway facilitates an incredible period of accelerated ascension… a day focused on manifesting abundance, love and prosperity… on this day, whether you are deeply involved in the ascension movement, or you think it’s all a bunch of new age gobbledygook… please join me in welcoming the good vibrations of change and transformation to spaceship Earth. On this day of days... please join in the fun and... think good thoughts!
