GATHERING OF CELEBRATION AT MT TITIROA AND LAKE MANAPOURI, MILFORD AND DOUBTFUL SOUNDS, MT COOK AORAKI SOUTH ISLAND AOTEAROA, NEW ZEALAND 12th – 23rd DECEMBER 12 DAYS
with Soluntra King
Mt Titiroa has been prepared and the energy transferred from Tibet with the Devis blessing and Dalai Lamas guidance. As Shamballa and the higher teachings are awakened within us as the dimensional realms merge through the cross-over point and we come home to ourself. Starting at Queenstown and being at the Cosmic egg at Lake Hawea for the 12:12, then at Mt Cook/Aoraki great doorway diamond and Council of Elders seat for the New Moon and pedigree. On to the Mackenzie Basin and to Milford Sound, the womb of creation where we stay two nights and experience the inner and outer beauty of the great womb and the new Light Grid Matrix, working with the Sirian Living Library of Light there, Light Ships and Inner Earth Doorway. Then to Dimensional doorway that connects from the Inner Earth through the Galactic Centre at Lake Manapouri, the cross over point opening up to the higher dimensional self and Earth. Cruising over the ancient caves and great diamond at Doubtful Sound and a helicopter ride up Mt Titiroa on the Solstice to bring in the new energies appropriately at this great beacon of the New Earth, at the land of First Light. The Living Library of Light at Lake Manapouri (Lake Prasad on the inner planes) is where the thirteen stars of awakening consciousness shine into the Diamond Light Matrix that is held through the great Diamond at Doubtful Sound and through the whole area. Mt Titiroa (Mt Akum is the inner planes name) energies have been transferred from Mt Kailash and the Light is so clear that illuminates through the crystal mountain, the lake and sounds as we move through then gateway and cross over point ready for full ascension and connection into our divine selves, the light being we are here on Earth in our body, our body of light and awakened at the level of ourself as a Creator Goddess God, one with the Central Sun. We will be working with the Shamballa energies that have been anchored at Mt Akum and the Devi of all creation to connect deep within and allow the Living Library of Light that we hold to awaken within our DNA codes of our divine blueprint. The energies anchored at Mt Akum and Lake Prasad are the New Earth, higher dimensional Earth for the Ninth Wave, beginning of the Universal Underworld and now as we move from the Nine Underworlds to the Overworld, we are the Living Light right now, in no time or space, the stillness within.
THE INNER JOURNEY
This is an inner planes as well as outer journey to awaken, heal, unify and be the multi-dimensional beings we truly are. Working fromyour third dimensional temple accessing yourself in the 5th dimension and beyond as the member of the Council of Light and in the Central Sun and Greater Central Sun, fully present.Connecting through your Earthsun Body, Inner Earth Sun and new light codes. We will be enjoying the energies of the inter-dimensional doorways and the new Light Codes at this great transition time as we come fully into unity consciousness and an open heart. We have waited along time for the December Solstice of 2012 and we will be at the Crown Chakra of the New Earth, anchoring the multi-dimensional realms with the third dimension as we open to our divinity more than ever before in a physical body and through the densest realms of creation. We align to the RA Light as the Suns in the heavens align and we complete the great cycle and as the Mayans say we move into the world of the Fifth Sun. All the dimensions are compressing as is our perception of time and space as we merge our multi-dimensional selves and align to the Sun within and Suns without resonating as the Light beings we truly are.
We are anchoring more fully the New Earth, higher dimensional Earth as we open up and integrate our multi-dimensional selves and can access all our gifts through the unlimited facets of light that we are. Some of us have been anchoring the New Earth for years I have been consciously since 1993 as the Crystalline Matrix of Light has been aligned ready for the shift into the higher light matrix through the Earth and our bodies. The crystalline grid started to really get boosted from 1981 and the Golden Solar Discs all humming once again and the Diamond Light Matrix being activated now for a few years; the stage is all set. On the inner planes and for those resonating in the light matrix more fully the dimensional worlds have already merged fully on the March Equinox 2010, and with so much preparation by so many light workers. Now we are called to be at such a sacred and amazing place for the anchoring more fully of the new world and into the cycle of the 5th Sun. We start our journey on 12 December 12:12:12, the balancing of the masculine and feminine energies into Divine Oneness. On the 12:12 2008 I had a group at Lake Manapouri Galactic Centre cross over and Mt Titiroa for the 12th Gate 12:12 with the union of male and female, now completing on the higher realms and for those resonating at that frequency in unity consciousness. The December 21st Solstice (it’s the 22nd at first Light time at 11 minutes after midnight daylight saving time, but in sun time it will be 11:11pm 21st but we just slip into the 12:11 in human daylight saving time at NZ First Light which brings it into the 12 and the expansion into greater access to 12 dimensions. In the heavens there will be a 'Finger of God' formation of Saturn, Jupiter and Pluto. For those who are not able to connect consciously yet to the higher dimensions for themselves and all creation in unity consciousness it may not appear that anything has happened. But for those sensitive to the changes it will be like a great wind has come through and cleansed everything and the old attachments have been blown away into the all that is to be absorbed in the oneness and that the true beginning of the Ascension has dawned, celebration time as we align one with the Suns. At the beginning of the Ninth Wave March 2011 I had a group at Milford and Doubtful Sound, Lake Manapouri and Mt Titiroa and the Inner Earth Sun completely shifted its frequency. We are going to be in such amazingly high frequency portals, vortexes and dimensional doorways with such blessings at this great shift in cycle to be who we are. I will be facilitating inner work, meditations and attunements with the multi-dimensional energies and light codes, working with our Blue, Violet, White, Gold and Present Light Bodies and kundalini, life force energy as we open up to our multi-dimensional self and the holograms of our love that we have created to experience the prisms of light fully in matter. We are now awakening to the Diamond Matrix of Light. Integrating the Diamond and Iridescent Light Body and awakening to the Light Streams in liquid light plasma through the RNA, DNA and our dimensional bodies. The Diamond Light Body, the new template for the higher dimensions of our oversoul, multi-dimensional self as it integrates into our physical body. The Diamond Light Body is formed through the Diamond Light Matrix now being activated on Earth which means also through you and your body. This is happening as the light codes have intensified through the eclipses, the planetary and stellar alignments and link ups, as well as all the work that has been done with the great diamonds worldwide that are in the higher dimensional Earth, now with this time of moving into the Galactic plan of our galaxy and aligning to the Suns we are ready to open up to higher octaves of ourself. The Diamond Light Body is the link that has been missing, and is the vehicle that takes us to the realms of the Light Body master codings and the wisdom and Light of our inner self. Working with the RNA that receives the multi-dimensional codes. Activating the strands of DNA and RNA with light and sound through the physical body and all the energy bodies, with mandalas and sound codes. Awakening to the Star and Planet Chakras with kundalini alignment through the cosmos within you. We will be working with the Golden Liquid Light Plasmamore fully, the Cosmic Egg of your Divine Blueprint and the thirteen stars of the Great Central Starmap. . Awareness of the Invisible with opportunities for inner unification, healing and awakening the light within more fully, as we open to our Light Being self in the higher dimensional Earth and the Council of Light, and the Shamballa doorway of awaken light consciousness in union with all creation through the doorway of the heart. In unity with the Second Sun, doorway into the New Earth and through the Galactic Centrewe are blessed to be in such sacred places and vortexes for the doorway into unity and the New Matrix of Light we create by being the Living Light in the Galactic and Universal Flow in our Body of Light, one with the Galactic Centre. For we are already there and in the higher dimensional Earth right now, but are integrating fully into the third dimension as it becomes Light through our love and union. A sacred calling as a beam holder in loving service in the bigger picture as we embrace the Light we are and align to the Golden core centre within, a coming home, apart from the incredible experience of actually being in these 'all inspiring', high frequency places. With panoramas and views that will remain forever with us as we open more fully to our oneness with Source, the Golden Presence within and without, to Be. In our Being the divine cosmic energies, Light can move through us for our real reason for being right there as an anchor point and unifier of heaven on earth through our love and selfless service of being. Thank you for being open to the journey and sharing your self by being present in Loving Service for this major cosmic event in the shift in cycle, into unity consciousness and the New Earth. In the One Heart Love Soluntra

DAY TWELVETHURSDAY 23rd DECEMBER THE SOLSTICE Morning connection, over view and integration of what’s occurred on our journey on all levels. For those in a hurry to get home for Christmas then driving to Queenstown to jet out.
FLIGHTS HOME FROM QUEENSTOWN The reason I have chosen Queenstown to meet and leave from is one; its not far to drive on 23rd approx two and half hours drive from Lake Manapouri. Two; Christchurch is a lot further to drive back too, a days drive if you did fly in there and hire your car from there. Three; if you do come through Christchurch from an overseas flight and either flying on to Queenstown from there or driving try and get times where you do not need to stay in Christchurch. As you know due to the devastating earthquakes in 2010 and 2011 the rebuilding is starting with most accommodation taken up by people coming in for that, or from locals who no longer have a home to live in. You might not have a problem with accommodation there but there’s a lot happening that could make it tricky. If you are flying from OZ you can get direct flights from Sydney to Queenstown, on the 23rd the direct flight from Queenstown to Sydney leaves at 2.40pm or lots of flights out to Christchurch, Wellington or Auckland as you can fly into Auckland, Wellington or Christchurch then fly or drive from there to Queenstown. You may also want to travel around before or after and below at the end of this flier I have places of interest that you might want to visit. Obviously after we finish its Christmas so could be tricky, keeping in mind we are in school holidays, but most people travel after Christmas day. I have checked out other times of Flights from Queenstown on the 23rd To Christchurch mostly with Air NZ and one with Jetstar they flyfrom 8:45am through the day to 5.55pm From Queenstown to Auckland most are via Christchurch, some direct and from morning until 5.10pm The best website to get an idea of flight times and choices of airlines is www.jetaboard,com.au or www.jetaboard.co.nz
ACCOMMODATION AND TRAVEL Below are places we will stay, but another option is hiring a campervan, these can be small vans for one person, or a couple, to 4 or 5 berth vans. This means no hire car or accommodation costs and everywhere we go there will be places to have your van, often at the same places as rooms or in the same area, so something to think about. You can search for prices onhttp://www.backpackercampervans.co.nz/cheap-campervans/395/New+Zealand+Home.aspx
Most of us will need to hire cars from Queenstown. This needs to be organised as below under ‘Summary of Things to do asap’. Or you might be coming with friends so sharing is already sorted.

SUMMARY OF THINGS TO DO ASAP FLIGHTS Book your flights to and from Queenstown asap as this is a popular time of year and also costs will keep going up. ACCOMMODATION I need a deposit for my fee $200 asap to hold your rooms at Mt Cook, Wanaka and Milford Sound. I am not paying for the rooms but have held them with my credit card and need to know by 10th October what you are doing re sharing. All rooms at Wanaka have to be paid by October 14th. So please let me know re all rooms by October 10th at very latest. Obviously the earlier you do this the more choices you have. Please let me know if you wish to share or would prefer a single. If all the singles are taken then you may need to book somewhere nearby which I can help with if that happens down the track. HIRE CARS Unless you have your own car or hiring campervan then you will need to share a hire car. I never book a big bus with driver as it is so limiting and we are stopping and going off the main areas and off at all times and need our freedom. So let me know when you arrive and leave Queenstown asap so I can network you with others to share a hire car. We also need to get the hire cars booked asap as there may not be any left closer to the time. So if you know you are coming please pay my deposit asap and tell me if you are willing to drive and have a credit card, or wish to be a passenger so I can co-ordinate and make sure we have wheels. Or if you have a car to share then please let me know the number you can fit in it with bags and you arrival and leaving times. The roads are quiet and easy to navigate.
EXPERIENCING QUEENSTOWN After we finish is not a good time to be travelling as its Christmas and there will be holiday makers everywhere and booking places etc will not be so easy. So best to come earlier if you would like to spend some time in Queenstown. There are things to do, like get the cable car up to the Summit for amazing views. A trip on the Earnslaw old steam boat down Lake Whakatipu, a jet boat ride up the Shot over river, or bungie jump.
I am just mentioning places in the South Island here, the North Island also has lots of amazing places. At the top of the west side of South Island; Cape Farewell and beaches nearby with amazing natural bridges and arches. Also near Takaka in Golden Bay is a beautiful national park and on the way over the Takaka Hill from Nelson is resurgence which is a river that comes out of the mountain and the clearest most divine rock pools with fairy realm energies. From Nelson there are the Nelson Lakes Rotorua and Rotoiti, both stunning and magical. Then the West Coast is amazing and the Franz Joseph and Fox Glaciers, you can walk on both. The road between the top of the West Coast through Arthur’s Pass is also stunning and as you come out of the pass is Castle Hill amazing rocks and vortex, as well as the lakes tucked in along the Southern Alps. Stewart Island is also wonderful if you get a chance to get there and Lake Tekapo that is on the road to Mt Cook from the north is lovely, we will not have time to go there, but if you are driving to Queenstown form Christchurch you pass it.
