Kalya Scintilla remixed and beyond

With down-tempo middle-eastern inspired music; Kalya Scintilla delights your ears with sonic bliss and is undoubtedly Tribal Council’s favorite producer of 2012 (and Clayton’s favorite of all time). No matter what TC party you have been to, you are guaranteed to have heard at least one Kalya track. Being from Australia, his music carries a different, exotic, and galactic feel. Generally absent of lyrics; this helps display the interesting melodic lines and sound clips interwoven into the soundscape. This ambiance and music is perfect for belly dancing, yoga, and even meditation.

dance the spiral never endingTantilizing to the ears, Dance the Spiral Never Ending was released in January 2012. This whole album has this lovely yet groovy dance feel throughout! He loves to add these wonderful alien sounds into his songs; one that sticks out in my mind is ‘Bone and Stone‘. This song has some gangster beats with intergalactic filters layered on this amazing track. Another memorable song is ‘Break Belief Bounce‘ featuring Alice Spacedoll with exotic vocals. With a very bouncy beat, this song incorporates what I would consider the “essential” Kalya Scintilla sound; middle eastern inspired, galactic, activation beats. The last track I want to mention is ‘Dance the Spiral Never Ending‘ featuring Alice Spacedoll; the title track of the album. This song is really funky and has violin and guitar samples strewn through-out. The lyrics to this song are inspiring “Dance the Spiral Never Ending. Dance the air, the earth, the water; by your dance you hope can give us…” I love when artists use spoken word poetry or uplifting messages in their music. This idea of sharing more than just music, helps plant the seeds of self transformation and love.

Dance the never ending spiral remixedKalyaScintilla released a remix album fall of 2012, featuring select tracks off of Dance the Spiral Never Ending. On the original album, Rises in the East is the first track. Remixed by The Human Experience, the version is super quirky. They added some light vocals, and a beautiful violin solo to make the track dynamic and their own. The Desert Dewllers remixed Break Belief Bounce, it has much more of a trance sound than the original. The vocals and main melody are woven in and out of this track. Instead of the normal flow, the vocals are worked in as smaller glitchy clips broken up. Whitebear also offers a remix of the same track, his take is very trance-like. He layers a lot of the sounds on top of each other, creating a larger sound palette. I really enjoy how he breaks up the original rhythm and creates his own idea. Dance the Spiral Never Ending is remixed by Kaminanda, he gives this song a very alien sound. Adding some of his own melodies through the song, he leaves the spoken poetry. This version is very groovy and galactic, with less of the middle eastern sound that Kalya uses. There are a few versions of Whomp Shanti on the remix album, but I think Bird of Paradise’s remix is the best. There is this forward motion in the track, that is also present in other sets and songs of Bird of Paradise. At the end he speeds up the whole track and gives it a break beats feel.

Galactic OhmMerkaba is a side project that Kalya Scintilla has; the sound he uses is much more progressive psytrance. Galactic Ohm is the latest release under this name. First track is the title Galactic Ohm, and has many elements of Kalya Scintila’s style. With many glitchy, alien sounds and a constant fast-paced rhythm beneath it all; he creates the psytrance sound. The second and last track is titled Heart Math, and is my favorite track of the album! He starts this wonderful groove with a singing bowl and bells being rung, which are rung through-out the song. He takes the track to a new level by doubling the bass beat again creating the psytrance sound. What makes this track stand out to me is the simplicity through-out, ending with a sound clip of Bashar spreading his wisdom and light. (That is around 10:15 in the track) “Your heart has memory, your heart has wisdom, your heart has consciousness, your heart actually thinks… and when you can develop a balanced dialogue between the heart mind and the head mind, that’s when everything falls into alignment!”

Needless to say Kalya Scintilla is a beautiful, intelligent, transcended master of sound. He is currently trying to raise money for a visa to tour America in 2013. Please take a moment and donate to his campaign here. I cannot think of another artist I would like to see more during this upcoming festival season! Also feel free to check out his soundcloud for some other great remixes.

Lespectacle 2012 Compilation

album cover

This compilation album by Lespecial of Lost in Sound, is composed of an eclectic assortment of artists. The third song on the album is Futexture’s “The fragility in focus.” This song reminds me of the beautiful human who composed it, laid-back, fun, and thoughtful; intertwined through the whole song is amazing mandolin melodies. While Futexture’s song has elements of glitch, the song that follows is extremely so. Push/pull remixed a crystal method track, heavy in the bass like crystal method but far more stylized! Next a rework of “Paradise” by Bird of Prey! The original is down-tempo and definitely a reminder of ancient roots in all of us. The rework has new fleeting melodies and a vaguely psytrance feel. “Skizzo” by Blue boy productions is an interesting mix of sounds; middle eastern with this funky dance vibe underneath!

Supersillyus is usually a psychedelic aural experience. “Experience with eternity” by them does not disappoint, with a relaxed feel it is reminiscent of Shpongle. The beginning of Mr. Bill’s “Dreaming” greatly reminds me of early Aphex twin, but then it opens up. With a heavy bumping bass line and interesting snare; no one could mistake this track for Aphex. Srikalogy shares his poetry in Skytree’s “Keep it sacred, keep it safe.” I love the message Srikalogy shares, while Skytree throws down amazing beats. Skytree tends to use a wide variety of sound clips which always enriches his music to a higher form of consciousness. The album ends strongly with another four songs, some glitchy and down-tempo others grimy dubstep. The last song is notable, “Dubliminal messages” by Psyclic Nature; it is relaxed intelligent dubstep with a hauntingly beautiful flute solo! This compilation is a great sampler of new, up and coming artists; not to mention it is FREE on Lespectacle’s band camp!

Sacred Singularity EP released by Skytree

Skytree’s new EP Sacred Singularity, shares many uplifting messages to think about when listening. It is always a delight to experience something deeper than the perception of sound from an album. Iridescent Tesseract has many interesting samples seamlessly interwoven to create a beautiful sound-scape. Not only is Skytree an intelligent musician; but a truly wonderful and enlightened being. He shares his love through music and crystals, his song Crystalline Entity attests to this love. Let Skytree share his visionary beats with you on his upcoming tour. You will not be disappointed as he bathes you in an ambient world of sound. Please support our dear friend either on this tour or through his bandcamp!

God is in the Neurons

This video provides excellent neurological explanations of many things such as the link between our beliefs and our body chemistry, the biochemical benefits of practicing self-awareness, and how we are really a “momentary expression of an ever-changing unity with no center.”  It is so cool! Neurology is one of the numerous fields today that are turning out findings that point to the same ultimate truth: We are the creators of our own realities.  The illusion of separation between spirituality and science continues to fade and with it fades the illusion of our separation from the people and world around us…

Spirit Science – The Human History Movie

I recommend watching the entire Spirit Science series of short videos on youtube.  These are great introductions into a variety of metaphysical and spirituality topics and they are packed with a ton of information, so much so that sometimes I have to watch them twice to get it all. I have found it an efficient use of my time to get the overall ideas and key points on all these topics about which I’ve always wanted to learn, but don’t want to spend time sifting through tons of resources and material.  Spirit Science has already done this for you and does a great job of condensing the key points.  Also, the animation is funny and sometimes cheesy. The information in the entire series is information that needs to be spread far and wide so please share the videos in their series all the time with everyone you know! Each time you take 10 minutes out of your day to watch an episode, share it on your facebook or email it to some friends.

The Significance of 2012 to the Maya, Carlos Barrios

The text here is copied verbatim from the April 2012 Smoke Signal News, from the Manataka American Indian Council.  It provides the insights of Carlos Barrios into the Great Shift that is happening on the planet right now.  YOU are a crucial part of that shift.  If you are reading this, YOU are a guardian of Light. Now is the time to awaken, unite, and activate with those around you.

Enjoy the read. In lak’ech.

The Significance of 2012 to the Maya
As Explained by Carlos Barrios, Mayan Ajq’ij

Carlos Barrios was born into a Spanish family on El Altiplano, the highlands of Guatemala. His home was in Huehuetenango, also the dwelling place of the Maya, Mam tribe. With other Maya and other indigenous tradition keepers, the Mam carry part of the ‘old ways on Turtle Island (North America). They are keepers of time, authorities on remarkable calendars that are ancient, elegant and relevant.

Mr. Barrios is a historian, an anthropologist and investigator. After studying with traditional elders for 25 years since the age of 19, he has also became a Mayan Ajq’ij, a ceremonial priest and spiritual guide, Eagle Clan. Years ago, along with his brother, Gerardo, Carlos initiated an investigation into the different Mayan calendars. He studied with many teachers. He says his brother Gerardo interviewed nearly 600 traditional Mayan elders to widen their scope of knowledge.

“Anthropologists visit the temple sites,” Mr. Barrios says, “and read the inscriptions and make up stories about the Maya, but they do not read the signs correctly. It’s just their imagination. Other people write about prophecy in the name of the Maya. They say that the world will end in December 2012.The Mayan elders are angry with this. The world will not end. It will be transformed.”

The indigenous have the calendars, and know how to accurately interpret it, not others. The Mayan Calendars comprehension of time, seasons, and cycles has proven itself to be vast and sophisticated.  The Maya understand 17 different calendars, some of them charting time accurately over a span of more than ten million years. The calendar that has steadily drawn global attention since 1987 is called the Tzolk’in or Cholq’ij.

Devised ages ago and based on the cycle of the Pleiades, it is still held as sacred. With the indigenous calendars, native people have kept track of important turning points in history. For example, the day keepers who study the calendars identified an important day in the year One Reed, Ce Acatal, as it was called by the Mexicans. That was the day when an important ancestor was prophesied to return, “coming like a butterfly”. In the Western Calendar, the One Reed date correlates to Easter Sunday, April 21,1519 the day that Hernando
Cortez and his fleet of 11 Spanish galleons arrived from the East at what is today called Vera Cruz, Mexico.

When the Spanish ships came toward shore, native people were waiting and watching to see how it would go. The billowing sails of the ships did indeed remind the scouts of butterflies skimming the ocean surface. In this manner was a new era initiated, an era they had anticipated through their calendars.

The Maya termed the new era the Nine Bolomtikus, or nine Hells of 52 years each. As the nine cycles unfolded, land and freedom were taken from the native people. Disease and disrespect dominated. What began with the arrival of Cortez, lasted until August 16, 1987 – a date many people recall as Harmonic Convergence.

Millions of people took advantage of that date to make ceremony in sacred sites, praying for a smooth transition to a new era, the World of the Fifth Sun. From that 1987 date until now, Mr. Barrios says, we have been in a time when the right arm of the materialistic world is disappearing, slowly but inexorably. We are at the cusp of the era when peace begins, and people live in harmony with Mother Earth.

We are no longer in the World of the Fourth Sun, but we are not yet in the World of the Fifth Sun. This is the time in-between, the time of transition. As we pass through transition there is a colossal, global convergence of environmental destruction, social chaos, war, and ongoing Earth changes.

All this, Mr. Barrios says, was foreseen via the simple, spiral mathematics of the Mayan calendars. “It will change,” Mr. Barrios observes. “Everything will change.” He said Mayan Daykeepers view the Dec. 21, 2012 date as a rebirth, the start of the World of the Fifth Sun. It will be the start of a new era resulting from and signified by the solar meridian crossing the galactic equator, and the earth aligning itself with the center of the galaxy.

At sunrise on December 21, 2012 for the first time in 26,000 years the Sun rises to conjunct the intersection of the Milky Way and the plane of the ecliptic. This cosmic cross is considered to be an embodiment of the Sacred Tree, The Tree of Life, a tree remembered in all the world’s spiritual traditions.

Some observers say this alignment with the heart of the galaxy in 2012 will open a channel for cosmic energy to flow through the earth, cleansing it and all that dwells upon it, raising all to a higher level of vibration. This process has already begun, Mr. Barrios suggested. “Change is accelerating now, and it will continue to accelerate. If the people of the earth can get to this 2012 date in good shape, without having destroyed too much of the Earth, Mr. Barrios said, we will rise to a new, higher level. But to get there we must transform enormously powerful forces that seek to block the way.

A Picture of the Road Ahead. From his understanding of the Mayan tradition and the calendars, Mr. Barrios offered a picture of where we are at and what may lie on the road ahead: The date specified in the calendar Winter Solstice in the year 2012 does not mark the end of the world. Many outside people writing about the Mayan calendar sensationalize this date, but they do not know. The ones who know are the indigenous elders who are entrusted with keeping the tradition. “Humanity will continue,” he contends, “but in a different way. Material structures will change. From this we will have the opportunity to be more human. “We are living in the most important era of the Mayan calendars and prophecies. All the prophecies of the world, all the traditions, are converging now. There is no time for games. The spiritual ideal of this era is action.

Many powerful souls have reincarnated in this era, with a lot of power. This is true on both sides, the light and the dark. High magic is at work on both sides. Things will change, but it is up to the people how difficult or easy it is for the changes to come about.

The economy now is a fiction. The first five-year stretch of transition from August 1987 to August 1992 was the beginning of the destruction of the material world. We have progressed ten years deeper into the transition phase by now, and many of the so-called sources of financial stability are in fact hollow. The banks are weak. This is a delicate moment for them. They could crash globally if we don’t pay attention. If the banks crash …. then we will be forced to rely on the land and our skills. The monetary systems will be in chaos, and we must then rely on our direct relationship with the Earth for our food and shelter.

The North and South Poles are both breaking up. The level of the water in the oceans is going to rise. But at the same time land in the ocean, especially near Cuba, is also going to rise.

A Call for Fusion As he met with audiences in Santa Fe, Mr. Barrios told a story about the most recent Mayan New Year ceremonies in Guatemala. He said that one respected Mam elder, who lives all year in a solitary mountain cave, journeyed to Chichicastenango to speak with the people at the ceremony. The elder delivered a simple, direct message. He called for human beings to come together in support of life and light.

Right now each person and group is going his or her own way. The elder of the mountains said there is hope if the people of the light can come together and unite in some way. Reflecting on this, Mr. Barrios explained: “We live in a world of polarity: day and night, man and woman, positive and negative. Light and darkness need each other. They are a balance.”

“Just now the dark side is very strong, and very clear about what they want. They have their vision and their priorities clearly held, and also their hierarchy. They are working in many ways so that we will be unable to connect with the spiral Fifth World in 2012.”

“On the light side everyone thinks they are the most important, that their own understandings, or their group’s understandings, are the key. There’s a diversity of cultures and opinions, so there is competition, diffusion, and no single focus.

“As Mr. Barrios sees it, the dark side works to block fusion through denial and materialism. It also works to destroy those who are working with the light to get the Earth to a higher level. They like the energy of the old, declining Fourth World, the materialism. They do not want it to change. They do not want fusion. They want to stay at this level, and are afraid of the next level.

The dark power of the declining Fourth World cannot be destroyed or overpowered. It’s too strong and clear for that, and that is the wrong strategy. The dark can only be transformed when confronted with simplicity and open-heartedness. This is what leads to fusion, a key concept for the World of the Fifth Sun.

Mr. Barrios said the emerging era of the Fifth Sun will call attention to a much-overlooked element. Whereas the four traditional elements of earth, air, fire and water have dominated various epochs in the past, there will be a fifth element to reckon with in the time of the Fifth Sun: ether.

The dictionary defines ether as the rarefied element of the Heavens. Ether is a medium. It permeates all space and transmits waves of energy in a wide range of frequencies, from cell phones to human auras. What is “ethereal” is related to the regions beyond earth: the heavens.

Ether the element of the Fifth Sun is celestial and lacking in material substance, but is no less real than wood, stone or flesh. “Within the context of ether there can be a fusion of the polarities,” Mr. Barrios said. “No more darkness or light in the people, but an uplifted fusion.

But right now the realm of darkness is not interested in this. They are organized to block it. They seek to unbalance the Earth and its environment so we will be unready for the alignment in 2012.

We need to work together for peace, and balance with the other side. We need to take care of the Earth that feeds and shelters us. We need to put our entire mind and heart into pursuing unity and fusion now, to confront the other side and preserve life. “To be Ready for this Moment in History Mr. Barrios told his audiences in Santa Fe that we are at a critical moment of world history. “We are disturbed,” he said. “We can’t play anymore. Our planet can be renewed or ravaged. Now is the time to awaken and take action.

“Everyone is needed. You are not here for no reason. Everyone who is here now has an important purpose. This is a hard, but a special time. We have the opportunity for growth, but we must be ready for this moment in history.”

Mr. Barrios offered a number of suggestions to help people walk in balance through the years ahead. “The prophesied changes are going to happen,” he said “but our attitude and actions determine how harsh or mild they are.” “We need to act, to make changes, and to elect people to represent us who understand and who will take political action to respect the earth.

“Meditation and spiritual practice are good, but also action. It’s very important to be clear about who you are, and also about your relation to the Earth. Develop yourself according to your own tradition and the call of your heart. But remember to respect differences, and strive for unity. Eat wisely (Ormus rich food). A lot of food is corrupt in either subtle or gross ways. Pay attention to what you are taking into your body. Learn to preserve food, and to conserve energy. Learn some good breathing techniques, so you have mastery of your breath. Be clear. Follow a tradition with great roots. It is not important what tradition, your heart will tell you, but it must have great roots.”

“We live in a world of energy. An important task at this time is to learn to sense or see the energy of everyone and everything: people, plants, animals. This becomes increasingly important as we draw close to the World of the Fifth Sun, for it is associated with the element ether ˆ the realm where energy lives and weaves.”

Go to the sacred places of the earth to pray for peace, and have respect for the Earth which gives us our food, clothing, and shelter. We need to reactivate the energy of these sacred places. That is our work.”

“One simple but effective prayer technique is to light a white or baby-blue colored candles. Think a moment in peace. Speak your intention to the flame and send the light of it on to the leaders who have the power to make war or peace.”

We Have Work to Do. According to Mr. Barrios this is a crucially important moment for humanity, and for earth. Each person is important. If you have incarnated into this era, you have spiritual work to do balancing the planet. He said the elders have opened the doors so that other races can come to the Mayan world to receive the tradition.

The Maya have long appreciated and respected that there are other colors, other races, and other spiritual systems. “They know,” he said, “that the destiny of the Mayan world is related to the destiny of the whole world.”

“The greatest wisdom is in simplicity,” Mr. Barrios advised before leaving Santa Fe. “Love, respect, tolerance, sharing, gratitude, forgiveness. It’s not complex or elaborate. The real knowledge is free. It’s encoded in your DNA. All you need is within you.”

“Great teachers have said that from the beginning. Find your heart, and you will find your way.”

2012: All Signs Point to a BIG Change, Especially Astrophysics and Crop Circles

I hope you like your crop circles and merkabas served with a side of astrophysics. I suggest getting a cup of tea for this one.  I rarely watch feature length videos on youtube, but my mother and I agreed this one was well worth it.  Andov packs a ridiculous amount of information into this video, and it’s quite….well….er, better just watch it than me try to say anything about :)

I had an internal conflict about whether to post this for fear of reactions from skeptics who may label me as a “doom and gloom 2012 fanatic” or one of the countless others judgements people assign to those who talk about aliens and the topics in this video. Well, my internal dialogue was short as I quickly came to the conclusion that this information is far too important to not be shared for any reason, especially something as silly as fear of judgement!  Andov connects the dots masterfully well with an abundance of research and science to back up his claims and predictions.  The information in this video resonates deeply within my being.  I know many people would rather watch superbowl commercials or Lady Gaga’s award acceptance speech. This video is for those who know deep in their core that there are galactic events going on that we as a people as largely unaware of for a variety of reasons.  And it’s for the superbowl and MTV watchers too. It’s for everyone.  After all, you are me and I am you.

The message is simple. Now is the time to awaken to our true selves and activate our highest potential.  If you get this message, then you will understand that this is not a doom and gloom video.  Thank you, B. for posting this!

Youtube video description:

“Magnificent presentation by Pane “AstralWalker” Andov about the mega event that will take place at the end of year 2012 and beginning of the 2013. He explains that thousands of years ago from the galactic centre of the Milky Way, there was a powerful release of an enormous amount of energy, which like a huge, shining, circular wave is spreading across the galaxy from its centre to its edges.
The released energetic pulse is already affecting the whole galaxy including the little dot we call our solar system. Very soon it will reach us and hit us with full strength. He explains what kind of implications this spreading wave of energy will have on our solar system, especially to our star and our planet and how it will affect the DNA of life.
The way that Pane connects the dots makes it clear what our planet will face soon and what we as humans can do about it. He is also a contactee and delivers important messages which he backs up with scientific data. For the record, his DNA was changed when his biological body was only seven years old, enabling him to utilize abilities such telepathy, remote viewing, astral travel and to make contact.
He claims that from time to time numerous ET races communicate and deliver important messages to him as a result of alternations to his DNA in early childhood. One of those races is the positive race that is delivering the genuine crop circles, and they explained to him what the complex geometries mean. That’s how Pane was able to translate the complex geometric designs which contain the solution to the equation regarding what humanity is facing, when it’s going to happen and what can be done about it.

Sacred Economics, by Ian MacKenzie

I am so thankful to have amazing, activated friends who share all sorts of beautiful, inspirational, and enlightening information.  I believe that what you get out of facebook, like any tool, depends on how you use it.  Also, I think the utility and relevance of what shows up in your news feed is largely a function of what your friends are passionate about and interested in.  With a bit of discernment in what choose to click, I almost always walk away happy with the time I spend on facebook (even though sometimes it can be much more than expected) because I learn so much from quantum physics videos, political articles, and art that friends share.  Thank you Bonz, for finding the coolest and most inspirational stuff to share! I’m sure this wont be the last thing from Bonz I share with this blog community.  This video talks about how our current economic system is fundamentally out of alignment with our values and what is truly good for us as well as the planet, and puts forth ideas for positive change.  It is short, and extremely well done!

Youtube video description:

“Sacred Economics traces the history of money from ancient gift economies to modern capitalism, revealing how the money system has contributed to alienation, competition, and scarcity, destroyed community, and necessitated endless growth.

Today, these trends have reached their extreme – but in the wake of their collapse, we may find great opportunity to transition to a more connected, ecological, and sustainable way of being.

Daniel Pinchbeck’s talk “2012: A Change in How We Experience Time,” Burning Man 2003

“The thesis for my next book is: The destruction of the biosphere by modern industrial civilization is a willed cataclysm designed to force the accelerated evolution of human consciousness to the next level.” – Daniel Pinchbeck, from the following talk.

I first discovered the podcast “Psychedelic Salon” when I was a freshman in college.  I listened to a few episodes, including some Terrance McKenna talks, but then didn’t listen to any for five years.  I just recently rediscovered this incredible free resource and have been enjoying the intellectual stimulation its episodes provide.  For those who aren’t familiar with Psychedelic Salon, it is a podcast generously provided by Lorenzo Hagerty, who has gone to a considerable amount of effort to collect an impressive number of talks and seminars given by the most knowledgeable and pioneering intellectual minds and psychedelic thinkers of our time including the McKennas, Alex Grey, the Shulgins, Daniel Pinchbeck, and many more.

The following talk by Daniel Pinchbeck, entitled “2012: A Change in How We Experience Time,” was given at Burning Man 2003 as a part of the series of talks at the Palenque Norte theme camp.  This is one of my favorite intellectual talks I have ever heard!  He brings up a bunch of different ways of looking at the shift in human consciousness that is occurring right now.  He discusses the different ways humans have experienced time including time from the Mayan perspective.  He touches on stone henge, mayan temples, fractals, Jose Arguelles‘ work, and the importance of returning to indigenous shamanic ritualistic practices.  There is also a great introduction/summary of the Mayan calender, which I especially appreciated since I haven’t done much research into that area of knowledge.  Pinchbeck is truly a joy to listen to, and I highly suggest you take 45 minutes to listen to this episode!
