Here is, as mentioned in my other email to you, a wide array of options you may choose
from to decide when you'll meditate as part of the worldwide joining of minds and
hearts to create a wave of Love and peaceful energies enfolding the Earth in less
than 23 days from now. You'll also find other actions and prayer opportunities you may
decide to join in your own unique way.
And we certainly will be millions to take a moment to add the flame of our burning
Love to the worldwide pool of positive vibrations and resonance.
A few months ago, I created on my website the possibility for people to take part
into a poll.
A total of 1050 people have participated (so far) to this online poll at: http://www.cybernaute.com/earthconcert2000
See the current results at the end of each line
Here was the question:
How do you want to celebrate the new millennium?
1) Stay at home and unite in meditation with others around the world: 370 people -
2) Go out to a party and dance for the whole night: 68 people - 6%
3) Join the largest crowd in town and hug as many people as possible: 43 people -
4) Watch the best Millennium Show on TV and get entertained: 14 people - 1%
5) Make a trip to a special sacred place to greet the new century: 280 people - 27%
6) Do something wild I've never done before: 34 people - 3%
7) Do nothing special at all - just like any other day: 63 people - 6%
8) Decide on what I'll do to help make this world a better place for all: 112 people
9) None of the previous options: 66 people - 6%
These results speak for themselves!

LightShift 2000 is spiritual directive from a series of reoccuring visions which were
mobilized into a plan of action to unite the human family in Spirit. The Initiative
is a series of universal global meditations on the first of every month at Noon (15-30 minutes), leading up to quantum 1 hour events on January 1, 2000 and 2001 at midnight
(your local time). This creates a 24-hour wave of resonance in the collective consciousness
throughout the UN recognized One Day in Peace. There are also quantum events at key astrological "flashpoints" such as the August 11th Total Eclipse and the May
3, 2000 Grand Planetary Alignment (World Illumination Day), and at each equinox and
The LightShift initiative is a grass roots effort, networking around the world for
the last 4 years. Registrations have come in from over 140 countries and all US states.
Over 150 full Page full color announcements similar to the front page of the beautiful website (http://www.lightshift.com) have appeared around the world.
More than 200 magazines have published "The LightShift Vision" and "The Window into
the Third Millennium." Ken Kalb's book, LightShift 2000: Let's Turn on the Light
of the World is in its 8th printing since March of 1998, and has been translated
into 5 languages. Ken donates ALL proceeds from the book to the initiative. The LightShift 2000
website has been visited 2.9 million times, and has been voluntarily translated (by
Edwin Zimmerli, Gilda and Guillermo Sanchez, and Jean Hudon) into 12 languages. Over
1/2 million full color LightShift flyers have been circulated in English, and another
million in the European languages. Ken Kalb has also donated over 10,000 copies of
LightShift 2000 to outreach programs into prisons, hospitals, libraries, and schools.
There have now been 45 monthly LightShift first of the month meditations. The August
11th Total Solar Eclipse quantum meditation is considered to be the largest intentional
spiritual convergence in history.
Excerpt from "The LightShift Vision":
At 11:59 PM on December 31st of 1999, all of the calendrical cycles of day, month,
year, decade, century, and millennium will shift in a hopeful moment. The energy
of a thousand New Year's Eves will be amplified in the hearts and minds of all the
peoples of planet Earth. A rare opportunity presents itself for humanity to band together in
the quantum numbers necessary to create a powerful circuit of light to greet the
dawn of the new millennium. We feel that this unified circuit has the potential of
shifting the collective consciousness to a higher octave and transforming the course of history
in a more positive direction.
We invite you to be part of this radiant millennial moment -- hopefully, the most
powerful and positive shift in human history. Simply meditate from your pure inner
light for one hour, joining millions of other radiant spirits. This will create a
24-hour prayer wave through all the time zones to boost the resonance of the unified field
of consciousness and commence the millenial year in the most positive spirit. We
encourage and welcome any and all groups with a similar vision to lay aside little
differences and join together in this effort. For together, we are the LightShift.....and the
hope of the future.
You who read these words now have come for good reason. You are hereby empowered as
a spiritual revolutionary and an agent of positive change which we call....The LightShift
Please see http://www.lightshift.com for the entire vision.

WHEREVER YOU ARE...JOIN US IN A WORLDWIDE PRAYER WAVE
JUST BEFORE MIDNIGHT YOUR TIME ON DECEMBER 31, 1999
Wherever you happen to be as the new millennium arrives, we invite you to join in
a world-wide effort to begin this historic period of history linked in prayer with
millions of others around the world.
We know you believe that prayer works, that it can make a difference in how the new
millennium begins and unfolds, and that it can help to energize those who have the
solutions to many world problems.
A minute before midnight wherever you are, as everyone around you focuses on the countdown
to the new millennium, intentionally join together with everyone else who is committed
to holding this sacred moment. Thus united in intent, each person can spend as long as they want praying in their own way for a common vision of peace, freedom,
and the spiritual uplifting of the human race.
Imagine if we get hundreds of thousands, or millions of people joining together in
How You Can Help
We must inform as many people as possible. If everyone will duplicate this flyer and
e-mail or fax it to just ten people or more, we can literally reach millions by January
1, 2000. Also, it would be helpful if participants will then e-mail us at One Moment Of Prayer For The New Millennium information page at http://www.celestinevision.com and
give us an estimate of the number of people they know who are committed to unite
in this moment.
Our plan would be to record the number of participants as it grows, so we will know
how large the prayer effort is becoming and can issue press statements. Would it
not be amazing if we could reach so many people that this effort becomes the largest
prayer vigil ever? Journalists might record thousands, perhaps millions, pausing for a moment
in hope and love as the new millennium arrives.
Thank you, and remember to send us the number of commitments you know about.

SUNRISE GATHERING 1.1.2000
Imagine, the first morning of the millennium. Very early, very still. You make your
way, before sunrise, to an ancient, sacred place that holds great meaning for you.
Imagine other, like beings who hold the desire for healing and wholeness or the planet
and for all beings in their hearts, gathering in this special place, forming a huge
You concentrate your mind, holding within it your new vision of reality for this planet,
and as the sun starts to rise, imagine this vision releasing from your heart, like
a million prayer flags floating up into the sky.
You remain in pure, conscious, awareness, until the sun is fully risen, knowing you
are linking the energy of this sacred place, of human memory and experience from
the earliest times, with the consciousness of yourself and the beings connected with
you in this circle, and with all the circles and visions being created today; aligning with
cosmic and spiritual energy in pure, conscious, awareness at this most magical of
moments, the dawning of a new millennium. And that, from this moment on, you will
be playing your part in manifesting the new blueprint for human life on our mother earth:
a blueprint embodying wisdom, love, and compassion, harmony and peace.
Where will you be on the morning of the millennium?
May you feel inspired to join with your friends in a sacred place and play your part
in starting the momentum of the new millennium with the vision you hold in your heart.
And join millions around the planet at 5-5.30pm (4-4.30am New Zealand,12noon-12.30pm
New York, 10-10.30pm India) on this day and every Sunday through to 2001 with this
vision, and enfolding our planet in love.
Millennium Peace Project - for People who are Passionate about Peace email@example.com
Please pass this on to everyone you know. And let me know of the gathering you have
planned, and where, and I will put it on the website, if you would like me to. I'm
getting requests already from different countries, wanting to know where to go.
With love and blessings, and to quote Vijali "may we enter together, as one earth
family, into a world of peace."
ANI ALSO SENT THIS ADDITIONAL COMMENT:
Although I've longed for one time across the planet at the millennium for all groups
and individuals to unite in meditation and prayer, a truly global moment, I see now
that so much is happening that there will be continual waves of energy created around
the planet, the global moments combining with the time line moments with the local
moments, creating a series of harmonic convergences over this period of time.
I find the results of your poll (see at the top of this compilation) absolutely wonderful;
that although the millennium is merely based on one calendar, one religion, nevertheless
it creates a possible moment of change, and that there are so many beings alive at this time whose motivations and intentions are so pure and wholehearted that
to spend the time quietly at home or in special sacred places and concentrating on
what feels most important to them takes precedence. I find that very inspiring,
and confirmation that there are so many of us now uniting in one mind, one heart. So indeed,
maybe there will be that 'one moment' continually recreating itself over the millennium;
maybe we've been doing it all along and building momentum to that moment of global shift of consciousness, which is surely coming!
Jan.1, you are asked to create a SOLAR WAVE of love and prayers, starting at sunrise
wherever you are living. This, together with a simultaneous Global meditation (times
listed on web site) will bring about an HARMONIC CONVERGENCE of millions of us joined
together in spirit and holding a collective vision of universal love and peace. Perhaps
you can organize a sunrise event at a sacred site. In North Ireland, the sacred site
will be The Giant's Ring, just outside Belfast. Contact: Ani <firstname.lastname@example.org>

Subject: THE MILLENNIUM PEACE CANDLE
~ THE MILLENNIUM PEACE CANDLE ~
Several years ago in London, a young man named Chris was diagnosed with leukaemia.
His doctor informed him that his death was imminent and he could expect to live no
longer than 3 to 6 months. He was advised to go home and make his arrangements.
Chris went home and fell apart completely for 3 weeks. When all his anger was spent
and he had no more tears left to cry, he began to feel an urgency about makng the
best use of the little time he had left. He thought about what the Earth needed most
and decided, as many people would, that it had to be World Peace. So he resolved to set
about devoting himself whole-heartedly to this end.
Possessions were no longer a priority in Chris' life. He would not be needing them
anyway after a couple of months, so he sold what he had and used the money to print
leaflets aimed at raising peoples' awareness of the need for World Peace. These he
handed out to anyone who would take them, on the street corners all over London.
As the medical profession was unable to offer Chris any hope of recovery, he decided
to take the matter into his own hands and at least aim for the highest possible quality
of whatever life he had left.
He saw an advertisement for Reiki, attended the course and this introduced him to
an awareness of his spirituality, which he then pursued keenly.
Three months passed; six months passed and he was still handing out leaflets.
His money was by now running out fast, so he used the last of his funds to start a
small business for himself making candles and printing T-shirts with a World Peace
logo on them. These he sold on street corners to finance the printing of more leaflets
and to pay for rent and food.
One year passed. Two years passed. Three years passed by and Chris was still handing
out leaflets and selling candles and T-shirts. One evening he was at a social event
when he met the doctor who had diagnosed his illness three years earlier. The doctor
was astounded to see Chris not only alive, but apparently doing quite well. He convinced
Chris to admit himself to hospital for tests and everyone was amazed to find that
all traces of leukaemia had disappeared.
Some time passed and the Dalai Lama was visiting London on a lecture tour. Chris went
along to hear him speak and afterwards went backstage, explained his story to the
Dalai Lama's helpers and asked for an audience with him the following day. They agreed,
so Chris arrived at his appointment with one of his handmade candles.
He asked the Dalai Lama to light his candle and dedicate it to World Peace with the
idea that all candles lit from that one would carry with them the blessing and dedication
At midnight on 1st January 2000, Chris asks that all these candles be relit in the
name of World Peace. By January 1997, when this message began, thousands of candles
had been known to be lit from the original, and many were taken to at least five
If this story and a flame is shared by all those who come into contact with it, by
January 2000 millions of people all over the world will be lighting their candles
and directing their thoughts and energies to the goal of a peaceful Planet Earth.
Imagine if you will, the awesome power generated by such an act, and the potential
positive impact this could have on humankind. Perhaps you have said to yourself -
"I am only one person. How can my meager efforts possibly make a difference to the
total scheme of things?" Here is your answer.
Positive changes on a global level need only require a small effort by individuals.
Here is your chance to participate. ENJOY.
LIGHT UP LOVE FOR JANUARY 1ST.
If you receive this message and email it on, will you resolve to light up a candle
for World Peace at 12.01 am on 1st January and allow it to burn for twenty-four hours?
Imagine the power

To All My Relations,
If you were waiting for an 11th hour arrival, pay attention it's YOU. You are the
one to make peace happen. It's not too late to join or organize the DRUM 2000 World
Wide Synchronized Drum Circle for the millennium. When all time zones have reached
midnight, people across the planet, together will drum, pray and meditate on the heart
rhythm for one hour. In the USA this time is 7:AM EST January 1, 2000 Picture it,
at the beginning of the millennium, hundreds of thousands of people sharing one prayer
and one rhythm simultaneously. How better to seed our good intention for the next century.
The program is originated by All One Tribe Drum of Taos New Mexico. The web site is
Gather your friends and relations to drum and pray on New Years Eve at midnight and

In my home town Milwaukee (CST) we will drum from midnight to 6:AM in shifts with
master drummers from different ethnic groups until the synchronized drum time.
Our ceremony is at a synagogue, with potluck refreshments and a resting room. We will
