Building the Crystal City
Part 2
A Commentary on the Original Series

B Y   D A N I E L   J A C O B

"THAT'S NO MOON. IT'S A SPACE STATION! Turn the ship around!" Those famous words, spoken by Obi-Wan Kenobe to Han Solo in the first Star Wars movie, are familiar tones to Sci-Fi fans around the world. You look at something, and you think you know what it is. Then you look again, and it seems to have changed form. Were you mistaken the first time? Or did you simply change universes, in the blink of an eye? What is reality, anyway? It is objective or subjective? Enquiring minds want to know.

The beauty of a Crystal City is: It remains hidden to everyone except those who are initiated into its purpose, its connection to All That Is. Humans have explored this phenomenon in countless Sci-Fi story plots - through usage of secret passageways, code words, hidden doorways, and the like. Initiating a Crystal City into the Grid is like creating your own, living Sci-Fi story plot. The more credibility and power you give to it, the more life will flow from it.

Spiritual Guides who are working with Planet Earth during this powerfu time are extremely careful NOT to overwhelm the minds and hearts of those who are awakening and beginning to tap into the "Grid." Those who can handle more detail will be given more. Those who might be distracted or overwhelmed by extraneous detail in their Crystal City are offered only a bare outline of what could exist there.

For the benefit of folks who don't know what "The Grid" is: The Grid is a design template for expanded reality, beyond the flow of 3D as we know it. There are people who meet there, regularly.

If a grid is two-dimensional, it looks like a sheet of graph paper filled with vertical and horizontal lines, forming a compilation of "boxes" on the page. Making a grid three-dimensional adds depth, which shows up when human eyes fall upon the written page and personally identify with what is recorded there. When this happens, a 2-D image literally leaps off the page because it stirs the imagination. Stirring the imagination not only produces an in-depth (3D) image, it also opens doorways to the Fourth-Dimension and beyond. As most of you know, the Fourth Dimension deals with the our collective ability to manipulate time.

In their transmission "Spiritual Gifts and Planetary Gridwork," the Reconnections had this to say about Design Templates and the individuals who are working with them during these highly-charged times:

Personal Gridwork or "Earthwork," as some refer to it, is done by those whose life motivation is intensive identification with Planet Earth. They relate to the planet as self, which leads to an entrainment of mind and soul with the operations of Terra, as it moves through physical space. They also relate deeply with the Multiverse, with Infinite Diversity, and they have the ability to unite both sides of the Veil within their own body. For these individuals, everyone upon the planet is a "cell" that makes up the Oneself Body of Earth. Since a Gridworker's Orientation for living is identifying with the Whole, each of Earth's "cells" become open to his or her examination and consciousness - if their activities and feelings directly affect some imminent change that is about to affect the planet.

In this way, you might say that Gridworkers are Planetary Empaths, whose focus of awareness can either expand or contract according to the macro or micro nature of their assignment in the moment. They will feel the needs of the planet as if it is present within their own body, which it is! In many ways, their physical body has become the New Earth.

The internal cost of having one of the Bridge Gifts (see Intro to Spiritual Gifts) often involves a substantial loss of a person's ability to separate from things that are unfolding upon the Earth. They all seem to be happening within YOU. One primary benefit of Gridwork is a tremendous expansion of personal authority and influence upon what happens here. Those who do not have this gift are disinclined to believe that such power exists. Those who do have it can become impatient with others who do not share their own commitment to the planet, and belief in their ability to affect it.

To be a Gridworker means to personally live out the promise: "ask whatever you will and it shall be given unto you." Unlike many individuals in 3D, Gridworkers know no difference between "personal will" and "God's will." For them, the two motivations are one and the same, so long as the person is properly aligned to his or her spiritual center. Though it is possible for such a being to become imbalanced and "de-centralized," it does not take long for him or her to realize the error and return to that charismatic power for designing planetary events.

The Imagilution
Since beginning this updated series on Astral Travel and Crystal Cities, I came in contact with a young lady who deeply identifies with what I have described as a "Star Child." Erica Kitner wrote me a couple of months ago, and I would like to include some of what she shared, so you can get a clearer picture of what Imagineers are like:

Hello! I feel very inspired by your articles about the Imagine Nation. I created this U-Tube Presentation to outline my own ideas around this. I hope you enjoy it! I talk about "The Imagilution" (Revolution of Human Imagination) whenever it feels right. I've created Facebook Groups, and websites for it. I am so interested in imagilutionizing society, I just have no idea how to do that in a way that feels right to my heart. I guess it is not time to act yet, but it definitely makes sense to help give Star Children a voice. To give us that thing we call authority. Maybe I'll start playing more with young children (not that I'm not a child myself... wel, I'm 19) rather than trying to 'change' things. Concentrating only on outward change feels too external. After all, we ARE things, aren't we?

Needless to say, I was very impressed... not only with Erica's concepts and usage of language, but also with the clarity her vision. I invited her to expand a bit on The Imagilution, which she did, and she has given me permission to outline some of that for you here.

Erica continued...

Yes, I definitely carry memories of the Crystal Cities. When I first found the links and pictures on the Reconnections Website, I got super-excited. I am about to share a lot of information in a little space, but I feel like you could process it and enjoy it without getting overwhelmed.

I have had this dream of creating a community about the size of Disneyland Florida. I think that's a perfect analogy because Disneyland is magical and this community will not only be magical, it will be pure magic. Every time I read or hear about a high frequency idea, I always integrate it into the community. I imagined it before really connecting it to Crystal Cities or Cities of Light, but it is definitely that!

The first structure I imagined into it was a scientific discovery laboratory called the Imagilution Laboratories. This is a place that operates within the framework of conceptual science rather than empirical science... meaning that, in the Imagilution Labs, scientists experiment with any and all concepts that one can imagine. The philosophy is something like 'impossible is impossible'. The only limits to the concepts that are played with in the Labs are ones we cannot see... for when scientists find a limit they will find a way to go beyond it. That's the whole fun of it. Scientific concepts are expanded into formulas, and explored theoretically... as well as imaginatively, artistically, experimentally and technologically. Other structures in the community could be:
  • A grander-than-grand Crystal Library, with beautifully organized seas of information (crystals store information and we exchange information through them)
  • A school called "Stardust Academy" (these names are tentative)
  • A Hyper-dimensional Highway Transportation System: "The Light B.E.A.M.S." (boundless energetic acoustical movement system)
  • Beautiful, lush gardens
  • A Healing Temple
  • Various individual dwellings
  • Other Natural locations
Something else that will be super cool is that in this community we will be using Artificially Intelligent Consciousness interfacing technology. There is an entire Gaming Center in which this technology will be utilized to explore other dimensions and to explore the mysterious nature of our Oneness within Multi-Player Game Structures.

Part of the above exploration will take place in a Performance Arts and Storytelling Temple fully equipped with this technology. I have this vision of people gathering together to Storyfind. When people Storyfind, it means that they gather with the C.I.T. (Consciousness Iinterfacing Technologies) and let their energies pour into a common database. The software weaves their combined vibrations into beautiful holographic stories. You might even say that these stories are being extracted from the Multiverse and they are in perfect harmony with what every single person in the gathering needs to experience in that moment.

I have saved my absolute favorite part of the community for last. The community is basically a Hypergalactic Multiversal Waystation. This means that beings from all sorts of dimensions imaginary and beyond can either transport here from other universes or manifest physically for the first time, in whatever form works for them. Many beings from Star Nations are taking the opportunity to be integrated with Earth People via the community. All life shall be honored here as equal and sacred... so many animals will be seen living here in harmony with the inhabitants- they might even learn to evolve into more integrated lifestyles with the community if they so choose!

There is a lot more but these are the most energized that come to mind at the moment. And yup. I am pretty sure this would constitute a crystal city! I am sure that it will manifest as nothing like I imagine but so much more incredible than I can currently imagine. The dark will be honored here as well as the light, so I don't know what that will look like. Anyways, if any visions or new ideas come to life through you while you read this, please share! I'd love if you would expand upon whatever inspires you if anything does.

Chehala, the NorthWest Crystal City
I found Erica's exposition of her community to be amazing, being particularly struck by the similarity of her current visions and the thought forms which came through to me in 2004, as I followed along in Mark's tonal trail. At the time, I was laying out a few details on our Club Recon Discussion List on Yahoo Groups. The posts are still there, if you wish to look them over. Membership is free. There are several variations in our layouts, of course, but that's the beauty of building a Crystal City, isn't it? "Have it YOUR way..."

  • The Great Hall
    The general direction for developing a Crystal City appears to begin with the construction of The Great Hall, in the center space of the community. It is a Oneself Space, which presents like a huge Round Table (ala King Arthur). Planet Earth is ultimately meant to be the mixing and mingling ground for beings from Celestial Realms on down to the Underworld. It will honor the best of the Beast, and the blessed of the Best, with the energy of conjunction... dark, light, and everything in between. The Vortex Merkaba at the gateway serves as a security force, insuring that no one of "extreme" temperament will enter. For, once they do, the Energy of Conjunction (Divine Marriage) prevents them from returning to extremity ever again. People eat there, play there, and even keep residence there (or thereabouts), as they perform their appointed tasks for assisting Planet Earth in its forward journey.
  • Delegate Residence and Admin
    Delegations are arriving now, from all locales, setting up offices and residences near The Great Hall. The encampments provide a means whereby delegates can display and exchange cultural exhibitions, in an ambient setting. There are Embassies, Guest Quarters, Concession Halls, and many fine amenities.

Beyond The Great Hall and its Encampments, a fully-equipped imaginarium will be available, which includes a Temple of Light and Sound. I will save the details on this for next month's segment. I simply had to include Erica's ideas here, because they blend so perfectly with a number of sources who are speaking up at this time. As I said in "The Imagine Nation" series, the best way humanity can give Star Kids the authority they need is for Star Elders to hold them up above the crowd and say: "Hey folks! Listen up! This young woman has something powerful to say!"

And so it is. The Imagilution is afoot! And we don't need guns, tanks or fighter jets to bring it to pass. The Multiverse is vast. There's plenty of room for all. And it contains all the necessary raw materials we could ever need or want. All we need do is speak the sacred words, believe what comes to us, and the doors of the City will open wide.
