As we head into the year 2,000, we are moving into a time when time as we know it is changing. This has many causes, one is that our bodies are starting to react to a higher vibration of energy that is coming into our energy field here on earth, this energy field has been called the Photon Belt, and it is here for a purpose. Since 1982 this band of energy has been approaching closer and closer to our planet and has been having an incredible effect on all those who have been receptive to its energy. It is speeding up time as we know it and taking us away eventually, from linear time. This energy has also been the cause of hundreds of thousands of people around the earth plane searching for the spiritual within themselves, seeking healing on the many levels, physical, emotional, mental and spiritual, and in transforming many clerks, secretaries, shop workers, factory workers etc, into becoming healers either on a full time basis or part time.

As we head towards the year 2,000 this band of energy, because that is what it is, is heading closer and closer to our earth plane. It is not only creating a problem with time as we know it, but it is also affecting us physically. Very few books have been written on this subject, and the few that have are so technical you need a manual or dictionary just to understand the terms they are written in. It was in this understanding and after finding nothing to help in understanding what was happening to me, that I decided to write this information in the hope that it will help many people who are spiritually developed, searching spiritually or just opening the door, to understand the changes which can occur because of doing this.

These changes are occurring because the spirit world who are helping us, are helping us to raise the vibration of our energy to cope with the higher vibration that our earth plane is going through. You may have noticed (who hasn't) that time as we know it is speeding up, once you had all the time in the world, you got up in the morning and time stood still all day, you meandered through the day and managed to do all your chores and then at the end of the day, sleep. These days you are no longer out of bed and it is noon! You ask yourself, where did the day go? It soon is evening and you have done nothing that you planned to do, time has just gone haywire. This is being caused by the Photon Belt.

If you have opened the door spiritually, are on the path or are what is termed a Lightworker (someone already working for spirit) then you can guarantee that you will have one or more of the following symptoms. As the energy changes on the planet, so our bodies will change. Many people will not be able to handle the energy and will decide on an unconscious level to vacate the planet either by their own hand, or by accident, but it will be their choice when it happens. For those who stay and move into the energy of the Photon Belt not only will time not be the same as it was, but the following symptoms may be experienced, if you are one of those experiencing these symptoms, take heart, you are not alone, hundreds and thousands of other people around the world are also experiencing them.

For many years we have been told about the earth shifting in axis, of major changes that are coming towards the turn of the century, well, it is here, and nobody is prepared for it. It is in effect, The Christ energy and it is preparing those who have been waiting spiritually for the dawning of the new age and also at the same time "like a thief in the night" as Christ said of his return. The Photon Belt is like a virus, silent, moving slowly through the body, waiting to come to the surface, nobody is prepared for it, and most people in the media laugh when told about it.

This energy will affect all of our communications systems, electricity grids, computers, in fact all areas where main power is used. In the USA, on two occasions, huge power outages have been experienced with no exact cause being given, they can't you see, because nobody has seen anything like it before and it is certainly going to change the way we look at power the electrical kind, in the future. During the next three years more and more areas of the world will experience these outages and nobody will be able to explain why.

For those who are attuned to the energy of the Photon Belt they have nothing to fear, they will have worked on themselves to free themselves from their blockages, and will be already on a higher spiritual dimension or vibration, they will also have gone through a lot of the changes in this article and so will be attuned to the higher energy. The energy of the Photon Belt will affect them, but because they have worked on themselves, worked on their karma, faced their Self, worked on issues that have blocked them in this and other incarnations, and learned to live in the NOW, not worry about the past and the future, they will find it easier to cope with the energy.

So what are these changes that will occur and how will they affect you? Below are listed most of the symptoms, and if possible how to deal with them. Some changes you will just have to work through, others you can find solutions to them that will help you to cope. Through it all, know that you are raising your vibratory rate to cope with that of the planet, as one who has gone through it personally it is not a pleasant experience. I have survived though and this is a survivors manual to help you cope also. I have gone through the changes over twelve years, from 1984 until 1996. It was a rough period. I am glad I did go through it though because I have worked through all of my blockages, my chakras are clear and active, light travels through my body clearly and swiftly, I have become incredibly powerful as a healer, more clairvoyant and a clear channel for the Christ energy which is waiting to flow through others such as I. I am a highly sought after teacher, healer and spiritual counselor, I could not have done it without the changes I went through and you won't be able to either.

Just remember if you are going through these changes, then know that you are not alone, that in itself should help you.


These can range from migraines, to cluster headaches, women for some reason seem to get them more than men. These are caused by too much energy flowing through the crown chakra, and by hormonal changes which occur due to the chakras being stimulated. This can be eased by asking the Higher Source to help remove it, or ask your Guardian spirit to help in removing it. If it is meant to be helping you with your pineal or pituitary gland opening, then you will notice on asking for it to be removed, that it is not, but that it is less pain than it was. As you vibrate higher, the pineal and the pituitary glands are the glands that change to accommodate the higher energy. Other glands change also, but these two are the major ones that do. This can last a few months, or a few years depending on what level of spiritual development that you are at. Wearing an amethyst crystal can also help, as can taking natural or homeopathic remedies.


This is quite common and it seems that you just cannot shift the symptoms. This is caused by all of the rubbish that you have accumulated in your chakras, coming to the surface. You basically have to ride this one out, hot lemon drinks will help cleanse you further and don't work too much during this time, you are going through a major shift in vibration. Take it easy, it will pass.


Here, the solar plexus chakra is opening up and clearing out. People who have a lot of stored fear, anger and resentment experience this change. A yellow crystal like citrine can help you, you can either drink the water, or wear the crystal close to the chakra, the Bach Flower remedy Rescue Remedy is also great for helping ease this. Don't be afraid to take it every 30 minutes if necessary.


This can be on wakening, you have slept through the night, but can't get out of bed in the morning, or in the middle of the day you just have to lie down and sleep. This is caused by the shift in energy throughout the whole spiritual body. This will pass in time, each person has a different time frame for some it can be weeks, for others months, for others years. I just went with the flow and when I felt tired I had a rest and on wakening in a morning did not give in to turning over and going back to sleep. Plain Quartz crystal can help here either worn around the neck for energy, or placed in water and the water drunk too. If you can create a pyramid structure to sit under this will give you wonderful boosts of energy when you are lacking it.


You have gone to bed, exhausted, at ten PM. You have woken up and it is only one AM but you feel as if you are wide awake and it is eight in the morning. This is caused by a) the Photon Belt energy building around you, and your bodies inability to store it because of blockages. Don't go and clean the kitchen! The energy is there for a reason, it is to help you heal on all subtle body levels, spiritual, mental, emotional and physical, sit and read quietly, watch TV (that usually does the trick for me and makes me tired) or listen to a meditation tape. This can last for quite some time.


If you find yourself feeling emotional, or crying for no reason this is because you are releasing blockages that have been there for not only this lifetime, but also for other lifetimes as well, now it has to get out and the Photon Belt energy is helping it do just that. There is little you can do to stop this as it is meant to be free and stopping it will only make things worse. Just let it release, cry if you have to and seek out a Bach flower remedy to help with the emotional level. Rescue Remedy is also great for this. The more you clear the blockages the quicker it will cease to be.


These are quite common in both men and women. It has to do with the energy flowing too quickly through the body, hormonal changes, which men have too, and the body adjusting to the higher vibratory rate. Some men even grow breasts, or have an enlarged chest area for a while. If you are a man and you are concerned about this, please don't be, you will not have to wear a bra! You will however have a little puffiness in the chest area for a short while.

As the higher vibratory rate enters your body, the force of it will be so strong that many people feel the effect of it in the physical body in the form of aches and pains in the muscles and joints. Asking the Higher Source for help in removing this pain will help a great deal. Once the body gets used to the higher vibration it will settle down and then the energy coming in will be no further problem.


This sensation can be frightening because you may think you are having a heart attack. If you are to work for spirit in any way, then you will probably have this sensation at some time. It can also feel as if you cannot get your breath. As the heart chakra opens to receive the higher energy, for a short while, it cannot cope with this and so needs to adjust. The above symptoms and a feeling as if energy is running through your solar plexus and heart chakra (heart and stomach area) is quite common. This can last for quite some time. There is no solution but total relaxation when it happens will help you adjust. Do not have any fear, it is a normal part of raising the vibratory energy in the body.


Many people with the above symptoms often mention putting on weight, I did. It is a form of protection because the body feels it is being invaded and the Self comes in to protect itself, and also because you are using more water in the body. Drinking eight glasses of water a day will be of great help in keeping the weight off. If you are to work for spirit as a Lightworker, you will need fluid in the body to help spirit work with you, as they use the water in the body to create energy, just as we use water for electricity. The body will store water if it does not get enough. If you don't want a weight problem, then drinking lots of water will help.


This can be a frightening experience because you cannot remember what you had for dinner, and dinner was only an hour away. YOU ARE NOT LOSING YOUR MEMORY. You are changing over from left brain function to more of a right brain function. Areas of the brain are being activated to cope with the higher energy coming in. I used to feel as if I was having a stroke, I would feel as if I was not going to talk, often words come out jumbled or garbled, this situation will pass, there is no time limit on this.


Finding that sound is too loud all of a sudden is another problem situated with the higher energy vibration. All of a sudden noise is so loud, even a dog barking three streets away sounds as if it is next door. Some people (I did) feel as if someone is in their ears and feel the need to scratch them all the time. Pain can often be experienced as well, this is caused by the higher energy coming in.


As you open up to the higher vibration, you will find yourself becoming extremely sensitive to people, noises, all sorts of things. This can affect the central nervous system and can be quite a difficult thing to cope with. You do need to take B group vitamins and a multi vitamin if this is happening to you. If you are allergic to these vitamins then look for a homeopathic remedy or a Bach flower remedy for extreme sensitivity.


Experiencing depression is a very common symptom of vibratory rate increase. The higher energy coming in, forces any illnesses, viruses, anything that has been hiding in the body to come to the surface. This will often come up in the form of depression. Visit a spiritual counsellor and try to get to the root of the problem, it could be past life related so check this out too. Don't be afraid, it will pass and you will feel so light when it is all out of you.


I once walked into an Auckland NZ radio station and all the controls went haywire, and visited a Los Angeles TV station to do a TV show and all the lights kept flickering. I have an incredible problem in recording studios, recording my cassettes as well. If this is happening to you, then you are really reaching a very high vibratory rate and will probably be a profound healer or channel for spirit. It is due to extremely high energy coming into the physical form, it could be described as 50,000 volts of electricity coming in at once, not only can the body not cope, but it goes through the body and out again and as it does so it affects all electronic equipment.

The Photon belt itself will do this as it gets closer to the earth plane. One good thing is that you will be able to handle the Photon belt energy a lot better than the normal person in the street.


You will find that dogs and cats and other animals will become aware of your energy and be frightened of it or want to be around it all the time. Many animals can't get enough of the energy, others are somewhat frightened because they do not understand it. As your body gets more and more used to the higher energy this will pass.


As you vibrate higher, you will find that you no longer want the things that you used to. Coffee, tea and meat are just three of the dietary changes that people make as they vibrate higher. Meat is especially dense and can really affect the bodies energy especially if it has hormones in it (after all you men, you don't need anymore, do you or else you will really be wearing a bra).

You may develop cravings for certain foods, or go off your favourite foods. This is normal and a part of the change to the higher vibration. If you find this happening, then let it happen and explore the new possibilities.

As you raise your vibration you will go through different levels of consciousness. When you first begin to change you enter Lunar consciousness, this is where you start to develop clairvoyant and healing ability and become more sensitive. This stage of consciousness lasts for about five years.

Solar Consciousness is the next step and during this stage you become even more attuned and start to heal and clear problems from all the subtle bodies. For those who are not aware of it, we not only have a physical body but also a mental one, an emotional one and a spiritual or astral one. In Solar consciousness, we clear all the problems from this area. The time period for this to happen is between three and five years. Many people never go any higher, as this is a very high level. Stellar Consciousness is the next step but is only for the person who is going to be working on a very high level with spirit. To reach Stellar means that you have cleared chakras, you have dealt with all your karma, and you are a clear channel for spirit. Emergence with the Divine Force, God, Ultimate Being or whatever you wish to call the superior force is the next step and it truly only available to the great spiritual teachers.

The purpose of the Photon belt is to change the energy of the earth plane to a higher vibration. To clear away all the old and negative from the earth plane, so that the new teaching can take place, and to help mankind to raise itself to a higher dimension. This will cause a lot of upheaval in the world, there will be natural disasters, they are happening now, and more will be forthcoming. When it is over though, we will be a different race of people, no longer full of ego or self, no longer wanting war. There will then be 1,000 years of peace.

Welcome the Photon belt energy in your life, allow the changes to happen, don't fight them (you can't, you will lose) and try to laugh as you go, life was not meant to be taken so seriously. When things get you down just look at what is happening in the world and be grateful for what you have. Many of us in the future will be working with spirit making this world a better place. To do it, we have to come up to their level, their dimension and that is what the Photon belt is helping us to do.

Have fun on your journey!
