Many researchers believe that the Earth's poles are going to shift in the near future. They believe that this is all part of the cycles of planet Earth. The magnetic North and South poles have shifted before in the course of the planet's history - one result being the last Ice Age. Prophets and Prophecies.

In my opinion - the Earth will loose its magnetics - the grids that form the consciousness of our reality will collapse - as we shift into the next level of consciousness. Reality as we know it ceases to exist - a newer reality occuring for all souls. This will come swiftly and will not be measured in linear time.


Pole shifts are a cataclysmic inversion of the planet's axis of rotation, up to 180 degrees; a sudden slippage of the planet's solid crust around the molten core. There are several major scientists of this century that also expouse this concept as an event that has happened before in Earth's past.

Geographic axis: man-made arbitrary north-south fixed reference that determines lines of longitude and latitude, and the geographic North and South Poles.

Axis of instantaneous rotation: the true astronomical axis; the rotation axis. The line drawn through the Earth about which it is actually rotating at any point in time. The points where the line cuts through the earth's surface are called the "rotation poles"; the visualised extention of the north axis line in space currently points to the star Polaris, the North Star.

Axis of maximum moment of inertia = the axis of figure: because the Earth is not a perfect sphere, but is physically an oblate spheroid, the position of the axis of figure is not a precise constant, but is affected by the constant change in the earth's distribution of total mass: (ie, by ocean tides, atmospheric cond- itions, plate tectonic movements, etc.).

The combinations, and movements, of these masses with gravitational, centrifugal and orbital velocity vector forces, create what we call the equatorial bulge, and thus, the axis of figure. If the Earth were a perfect sphere, there would not be such an axis. The angular difference between the astronomical axis and the axis of figure, called a "nutation", causes an Earth orbital spirical oscillation, known as the famous Chandler "wobble". The equatorial bulge, the rotation axis' angle of inclination to the ecliptic plane, the gravitational tidal forces of the Sun, Moon and planets, have an affect on the Earths' orbit that produces the famous precession of the equinoxes.

Axial Tilt: the ecliptic is the plane of the Earth's ellipsoidal orbital path around the sun; the rotation axis is currently inclined to the ecliptic by an angle of 23.5 degrees: this is called the obliquity, or tilt, of the axis. It is this axial tilt that causes our annual seasons. Due to orbital dynamics, the obliquity varies between a minimum of 21 degs. 39 mins. and a maximum of 24 degs. 36 mins. over a 41,000 year cycle. The axial tilt's rate of change, (angular differentiation), is currently measured as .013 degs. per century.

Geomagnetic axis: not to be confused with the geographical axis, as it often times is. The Earth's magnetic field (whose real source is still an ongoing scientific mystery, but generally attributed to the interactions between the interior molten convection currents and the nickle-iron core, generating an electromagnetic force field, coupled with the rotational and orbital forces), itself has, by its own lines of force through space, the magnetosphere, a north- south axis. At present, the angular difference between geographic and geo- magnetic north poles is about 11 degrees.

Through paleomagnetism, (the study of the magnetic properties of rocks), scientists now have solid proof that the earth's magnetic field, and thus the geomagnetic north and south poles, have reversed itself namy times in the past. Magnetic field polarity reversals are magnetic poleshifts. The geologic record also shows that the strength of the magnetic field varies widely in time, and fluctuates wildly during field reversals, sometimes dropping to zero gauss strength; ie: the field vanishes, disappears! It is also a proven fact that the magnetic poles wander, literally zig-zagging around its axis.

At the present time, the field strength is decreasing. Again, the mechanisms driving all of this still not understood very well.

There will be a pole shift. This will include the kind of violence that is normally associated with pole shifts, the continents going up and down, huge tidal waves that are 100 feet high, the entire south pole moving to the Equator at 1300 miles an hour and these kind of things, this may still occur. But because of something I cannot quite explain about who we are becoming and about ourselves and our ability to control our reality as a planet, we may find that the environment, even though the poles may shift, may not be nearly as violent as we think. It could actually be a very beautiful experience.

My feeling on this may go against what a lot of people think. There are many people saying 'go out and dig holes in the ground, put lots and lots of food in, and guns and munitions and hold on for the worse'. But really what you are preparing for is that time right before the pole shift. Because when the poles shift, we will go through an electromagnetic no zone for about 3 and a half days, and then, after that time we'll be on a totally different dimensional level of the Earth. Whereby anything that is happening on this level will make no difference. That's a preparation prior to the time when all the systems, the social and the financial systems and all this kind of things break down. And it's normal for them to break down. Scientists will see in the magnetic field a direct correlation of the events of the Earth.

Prior to the poles of the Earth moving to new locations, which is when the human consciousness usually moves into the Fourth Dimension, there would be a period of time where there may be worldwide chaos. It is a period where most people go insane, all social systems, financial systems, political systems etc., collapse and the planet is plunged into total chaos. This time period traditionally, throughout the universe, has been about three months to two years directly prior to the actual poles of the planet shifting. We'll call this time period the Translation Period.

The chaos is caused when the geomagnetic poles of the earth drop to zero. This causes chaos because the human being needs the magnetic field of the earth to maintain it's emotional balance and memory. When the magnetics drop to zero, people go insane.

However, to believe that if you prepare in this way with food and supplies and that everything will be the same after the Translation Period, is unrealistic. At the end of the Translation Period you will change your conscioSCNess and begin to move through the void, the birth of the new conscioSCNess into the Fourth Dimension. From there on out, everything you do to physically prepare on earth will be of no use to you in your new world. No more than it was when you were born on earth in the body you now have.

We are going into a dimensional consciousness change and though a physical preparation may help a little tiny bit at the beginning, as we pass through these changes, the only real help is who you are, what your character is, how much your heart is open and how well you are to love and to connect with God. So the most important thing is to work on your inner self and who you are. This is more important than preparing with food and in the little bit of time that we have left, this is the area that I suggest you work with.


Edgar Cayce was the first non-scientific person of our modern era to bring the 'pole shift' concept into the mass consciousness. He definitely saw the shifting of the magnetic poles. He said that these shifts have occured more than once in Earth's past. Mythology alludes to the historical reality of such an event.

Cayce was the first to say it will happen again in our near future. His date of reference was 1998 a timeline that has been altered.

Here are some of Cayce's comments:

1932: "when there came the uprisings in the Atlantean land, and the sojourning southward- with 'the turning of the axis', the white and yellow races came more into that portion of Egypt, India, Persia, and Arabia." "of this period...of this time...when the changes must come again, as it did in the upheavals which destroyed Atlantis 'when the poles shifted' - as we find - 10,500 BC."

"that day when the earth will be rolled as the scroll; for the heavens and the earth will pass away."

"Those changes will begin in those periods in '58 to '98 ..., when there is the first breaking up of some conditions in the South Pacific and those as apparent in the sinking or rising of that that's almost opposite same, or in the Mediterranean and Mt. Etna area; then we may know it has begun. If there are greater activities in the Vesuvius or Pelee', then the southern coast of Caififornia, and the areas between Salt Lake City and the southern portions of Nevada, may expect within the three months following same, an inundation by the earthquakes. But these are to be more in the Southern than the Northern Hemisphere."

"The polar regions were once turned to where they occupied more of the tropical and semi-tropical regions."

EC - 1934 - "the Earth will be broken up in the western portion of America. The greater portion of Japan must go into the sea. The upper portion of Europe will be changed as in the twinkling of an eye. Land will appear off the east coast of America. There will be upheavals in the Arctic and in the Antarctic that will make for the eruption of volcanoes in the torrid areas. There will be shifting then of the poles, so that where there has been those of a frigid or the semi-tropical will become tropical, and moss and fern will grow. and these will begin in those periods in '58 to '98."

EC - 1934 - "The earth will be broken up in many places. The early portion will see a change in the physical aspect of the West Coast of America. There will appear open waters in the northern portions of Greenland. There will be seen new lands off the Caribbean Sea, and DRY land will appear. South America will be shaken from the uppermost portion to the end; and in the Antarctic off Tierra del Feugo will be land, and a strait with rushing waters."

EC - 1936 - "In the year 2000 to 2001 AD there will be a shifting of the poles. A new cycle begins."

EC - 1941 - "The greater change, as we will find in America, will be in the North Atlantic seaboard. Watch New York, Connecticut and the like. Many portions of the East Coast will be disturbed, as well as many portions of the West Coast, and the central portions of the US. Lands will ap- pear in the Atlantic as well as the Pacific. And what is the coastline now of many a land will be the bed of the ocean. Even many battlefields of the present [1941] will be ocean, will be the seas, the bays. Portions of the now east coast of New York, or New York City itself, will in the main, disappear; while the southern portions of Carolina, Georgia, these will disappear."

EC - 1944 - "the entity was among those who were of that group who gathered to rid the earth of the enormous animals which overran the earth; but ice, the entity found, nature, God, *changed the poles*, and the animals were destroyed."

Albert Einstein

"In a polar region there is a continual deposition of ice, which is not symmetrically distributed about the pole. The earth's rotation acts on these unsymmetrically deposited masses [of ice], and produces centrifugal momentum that is transmitted to the rigid crust of the earth. The constantly increasing centrifugal momentum produced in this way will, when it has reached a certain point, produce a movement of the Earth's crust over the rest of the Earth's body, and this will displace the polar regions toward the equator. "

Albert Einstein quote: from The Path of the Pole by Charles Hapgood

Shifting Geographic Poles

The ice mass at one or both poles over-accumulates.

At some point, this destabilizes the Earth's rotational balance.

This happens either slowly (conservative version) or quickly (radical version).

This causes slippage of all or much of earth's outer crust around the earth's core.

At the extreme, a plate area formerly at the Equator could end up at or near a pole. The area of crust at, let's say Antarctica, could end up at or near the Equator.

The results are globally catastrophic.

Tracking Earth's Mysterious Magnetic Field

October 28, 1999 - www.space.com

The force fields that surround all respectable intergalactic space ships are wimpy imposters of what Nature created long ago, namely the protective magnetic shield around our planet, fueled by mysterious processes deep within.

Until recently, we've known nearly as much about the source of the force fields around fictional star ships as we've known about the natural one that envelopes Earth.

But advances in computer modeling, discussed in tomorrow's issue of the journal Nature, are helping scientists grasp how the planet continually regenerates its invisible, protective magnetic shield, and the work confirms earlier suggestions that the Earth's mantle indeed plays a role in fueling the magnetism.

Further, the new simulations provide fresh insight into how the magnetic north and south poles might migrate and, over time, even trade places.

Earth, the Giant Magnet

Magnetic energy generated in the Earth's core results in a geomagnetic field, the thing that makes compass navigation possible while at the same time deflecting and absorbing harmful solar radiation.

The solid inner core, mostly iron, is surrounded by a more fluid outer core, which is mostly molten iron. The interaction of these two regions, in which material flows at different rates, creates what scientists call a "hydromagnetic dynamo," something like an electric motor that results in a magnetic field akin to a giant bar magnet.

Invisible geomagnetic lines stretch from one pole, curving far out into space and back to the opposing pole. Left alone, the curved lines might appear like a wire-frame model of some giant pumpkin, but the electrically charged solar wind blows the pumpkin into a teardrop shape.

As best as researchers can tell, this protective field has existed in various forms for at least 3 billion years, periodically growing stronger and weaker, shifting around, and on a few occasions even flipping its polarity entirely. Scientists examine old rocks for indications of previous reversals, which leave directional clues in solidified magnetic minerals.

At times, the field is thought to weaken to practically nothing, a state that would leave earthlings exposed to high doses of solar radiation.

Forces of Change

How all this erratic behavior occurs is not well understood. But radical changes seem to take place in as little as a thousand year's time, after which relative stability appears to reign for another 200,000 years or so. One thing is clear, researchers say: If something did not continually regenerate the magnetic field, it would degenerate to zero and our planet would be left naked to the hideous power of solar radiation.

Gary A. Glatzmaier of the University of California, Santa Cruz, has some new ideas about how this magnetism is continually reproduced. Scientists have typically assumed that the magnetism was all created in Earth's core, and in fact an earlier rendition of Glatzmaier's computer model -- which he's been working on for two decades -- helped to illustrate that process. But a new version of the simulation indicates that the next layer up, the mantle, can also play a role.

Glatzmaier and his colleagues used a tremendous amount of computing power to test a relatively simple idea: Where the core and the mantle meet, varying rates of heat exchange might create changes in the magnetic field.

"They note that variations in heat flow at the boundary induce a flow in the core, much like atmospheric circulation driven by differential solar heating of the Earth's surface," says Bruce Buffett of the Department of Earth and Ocean Sciences at the University of British Columbia. "The calculations are still crude approximations of the real Earth, but they lend considerable support to the argument that the mantle has an important role."

Buffett, who was not involved in the research, told space.com that one of the most significant results of the work is that Glatzmaier and his colleagues were able to simulate conditions that might cause a magnetic reversal.

While much about Earth's magnetism is mysterious, complete reversals of polarity -- and the slightly less dramatic "excursions," or wanderings -- are among the most intriguing of terrestrial puzzles.

"The current results show how the temperature patterns on the lower mantle (above the core) can either increase or decrease the probability of magnetic reversals," Glatzmaier said. He notes that by feeding varying temperature differences into the model, the duration of the events and the intensity of the magnetic field were altered.

Reversal of Fortune?

Earth's magnetic field does not swap directions on any set time frame. While reversals occur every 200,000 years on average, the last one was 780,000 years ago, Glatzmaier said, adding that "we're overdue for one." Excursions of the magnetic field, in which the poles wander significantly but do not reverse, occur more frequently.

Because it seems to take centuries for a reversal to occur, researchers agree that the next one is not imminent (from the perspective of a human lifetime, at least). Geologically speaking, however, these things happen in the blink of an eye, and signals currently point to a change. Earth's magnetic field is weakening as you read this, part of a long-term process that might be leading up to a complete magnetic reversal, researchers say.

If and when this occurs, the further erosion of the protective magnetic shield will allow higher doses of cosmic radiation to bombard the planet. How our species (and others) might adapt is an open question.

"Clearly, our earliest ancestors have survived reversals in the past," Buffett said. "The most obvious consequence is that you'd need a new compass."

A Pole Shift is the Least of Our Worries

By Peter P.

Since 1830, the terrestrial magnetic field has been decreasing in strength. As the field weakens, so does what many believe is the natural navigatory force for many living creatures

Much talk has revolved around coming pole shifts on Earth, either physical or magnetic. Does the evidence bear out such an event happening?

An 180-degree physical inversion of the planet's solid crust around the molten core would be the ultimate cataclysmic "Earth change". However, more than a few experts find this scenario most likely only if another planetary body - such as a 'rogue planet' or similar cosmic anomaly - passed in close proximity to the Earth, providing enough torque for such an event to occur.

A reversal of the magnetic poles is much more likely, however, as it's happened before. Seen in the paleomagnetic record, locked into rocks of the ocean floor and in some lava flows, scientists think the time between reversals on the Earth falls somewhere between every 100,000 to 25 million years, with the reversal itself taking about 5,000 years.

Not that just the reversal takes that long, mind you, and therein lies the crux of the problem. No, during much of that time, the geomagnetic field strength decreases - which counts as part of the 'reversal' process. According to laboratory analysis of thermorenanent magnetization carried by clay baked in ancient times, the average global field intensity in any given region went through a broad maximum about 2,000 years ago. [2] After reaching a maximum, it then began its long descent.

NASA's Magnetic Field Satellite concurs, confirming a trend that goes back to at least 1830; namely, that the terrestrial magnetic field is decreasing in strength. At a rate measured by the satellite, the Earth's field will hit 'zero' in about 1,200 years. [3] That, at least, is the estimate.

One contributing factor to the decrease, and eventual reversal, may be intensifying core spots within the inner core that are magnetized in a sense opposite of the main field [4]; while competing energy sources, such as heat loss at the mantle-core boundary (itself possibly contributing to climate change) and growth of the inner core may also be contributing factors. [5]

As the field reaches 'zero', or close to it (some estimate the magnetic field will be at 20% of normal during a reversal), complete with periods of rapid and radical changes [6], something much more threatening than the upcoming reversal will occur.

First, as the field weakens, so does what many believe is the natural navigatory force for many living creatures. Studies have shown that whales, dolphins, birds and even mollusks and mice use the geomagnetic field as a guiding device. Some, like mice, use it as a directional guide [7]; while cetaceans use the total geomagnetic field as a map, not for directional information, as we would use a compass, but by navigating the contours of magnetic "hills and valleys" in a field that is anything but uniform.(8)

Without it, whales and dolphins would beach in record numbers, birds and other creatures would be 'lost', unable to find their home. The effect of a magnetic reversal on humans is less known. Confusion might reign, and some theorize a complete 'reboot' of the human mind - the brain IS known to contain magnetite - might occur. However, as the field decreases (before a 'reversal'), one could surmise what may happen by looking at a recent experiment by Dr. Valerie Hunt. Hunt had a room constructed in which the magnetic field intensity could be varied. The following, as spelled out in her book, ''Infinite Mind'', was observed:

When "the magnetism was decreased, gross incoordination occurred. The entire neurological integrating mechanism was thrown off. Subjects could not balance their bodies; they had difficulty touching finger to nose or performing simple coordinated movements. They lost kinesthetic awareness."

Could our bodies adjust as a much more gradual, long-term but worldwide decrease in the magnetic field intensity occurred? That may be doubtful, and if so then at what point near the conclusion of this pre-reversal descent would such incoordination sweep over the human race?

Not that it would matter for long. Now, as the Earth and its magnetosphere plows through the solar wind, the charged particles are diverted around a 'shell' created by the geomagnetic field. Without that field, high-energy particles - including dangerous gamma-, and X-rays - would penetrate completely, to the surface. If television or radio were still in use at that point in the future, transmissions would become impossible. Electric power grids would be off-line indefinitely.

And the effects on organic matter?

Gamma rays, because they are so penetrating, can have severe effects on the cells of humans and other animals. As with cosmic rays, which also bombard the Earth at all times, gamma rays are known as ionizing radiation, which can cause a host of problems from cell death to genetic mutations (leading to cancer), in any living thing.

As was said before, the magnetic pole reversal itself would be the least of the worries, as it's unlikely future generations would survive long enough to see it.

Earth's shifting magnetic fields July 4, 2002 - Guardian UK

Earth's magnetic field is showing strong signs that the poles are due to switch over. The planet's magnetic field is showing signs of wanting to make a gigantic somersault.

Just when this will happen, how long it will take and what the consequences will be, is difficult to fathom. What is not in doubt, though, is that it will happen. About every half a million years or so, the Earth's magnetic field flips upside down.
