Aluna Joy reinterprets the “rapture” as the return of the ancestors. Her article is very much too long to publish as a post and so I’ve published it as a page, located here: http://goldenageofgaia.com/2012-essays-2/aluna-joy-the-return-of-the-ancestors/.
(Sorry. I mistakenly linked it to “The Return of the Masters” article.)
Here are a few paragraphs from it:
Thanks to Patte.
The Star Elders would like to share an example about what this event is about so we can understand it. In Christianity, when we are saved and at the time of the rapture, we rise again . . . apparently out of our graves. In comparison, the Mayas, the Incas, the Aztecs and most indigenous cultures say that their people will return, but they don’t share how.
We all agree this will be a time of peace and paradise on earth. It is the same story in most cultures, but with a twist in the translation. This rapture is happening now all over the Earth. It is a sign that we do in fact have our foot hold in the new world now. This is really amazing news.
Last night we experienced the first wave of a rapture of the ancestors. We must redefine the term rapture because in this case, “the rapture” does not mean we will go away from here, or ascending to heaven; but instead to rise up into a new dimension or new world. This rapture is about the return of heaven back to earth. This rapture is about being lifted up into full awareness, into life again, and being able to walk the Earth as living masters.
This has been done before on earth so it is not an unrealistic idea. Adam and Eve were living in paradise. heaven. before they decided to embrace duality by eating from the tree of good and evil. They became aware of positive and negative, right and wrong, black and white etc. This is why we live with all the conflict and dramas that we do. What this sacred time calls for ALL OF US to do is, to embrace UNITY and WHOLENESS and ONENESS in our diversities. If has been this way before, it can be so again. It is simple as that. The Butterfly Man continued sharing . . .
There is a lot of people on the planet that have been holding the souls of their ancestors inside of them, in their hearts. This is why so many of you feel like you have heavy hearts for no apparent reason. This is yet another reason that the Star Elders and I (the Butterfly Man) want you to activate your butterfly heart, because this is the time for your ancestors to be released into this new world.
The fluttering activation of the butterfly heart is going to help these souls be released back to the New Earth so they can continue their work. (you can read more about the Butterfly Man and this concept here – http://www.kachina.net/~alunajoy/2008march.html and here http://www.kachina.net/~alunajoy/2009may-2.html). Remember, the Star Elders and their family of living stones never do one thing for one purpose only. There are a multiple multi-dimensional reasons for each action.
