Institute of Light

The Institute of Light has become operational. But before we get to that significant news, let me lay some groundwork by addressing this moment of great change.

Since 11/11/11 everything is changing even more rapidly. Can you feel it? I do, and it’s wonderful. I know it’s true for me, yet I’m having trouble putting it into words. I feel a great sense of confidence and calmness that everything will work out great for me and for everyone who chooses to transition.

A little background, in my opinion there are no 3rd dimension solutions — political, economic, religious, or otherwise — to the basic problems that confront our planet and its human population: poverty, health, hunger, inequality, environmental deterioration, water scarcity, mind control, oppression, injustice, wars, violence — societal and personal, and dysfunctional relationships. The fear underlying these has prevented any significant progress for the humanity for thousands of years. If we experience the complete breakdown of our current economies and governments, the natural response will be to replace them with something else based in the 3rd Dimension — this has happened numerous times. Therefore, there is no reason to believe our current situation will change, if we continue to use the tools of the 3rd Dimension, or extrapolations of these tools.

To break this cycle of living in the 3rd Dimension, I believe we need fundamentally new approaches. Furthermore I believe some influence, beyond the control of the elites who run this planet, must occur to motivate people to adopt any radically new approaches. One such influence could be major Earth changes (significant enough to capture everyone’s attention). Another could be intervention by beings from vastly higher frequencies (something to move everyone to embrace higher vibrations). A third could be the mass appearance of our star brothers and sisters (but only after there is no 3rd Dimension military response). The fallout from any one of these would cause people to question the existing paradigm, to look beyond our current economies, governments, or religions for answers, and to be highly motivated to embrace fundamental change. Together (the most likely scenario) such events will cause us to look into ourselves for who we really are, to seek community for support, and to connect with our spiritual selves.

If we are able to look beyond the confines of the 3rd Dimension, to see who we really are — great beings of light confined in physical form — and see the true scope of the universe, and understand Oneness, we immediately come to the conclusion that radically new approaches are not only possible, but are at hand. The overall purpose of the Institute is to energize these gateways to transforming Earth’s humans, without dismissing the need for continued Earth human involvement.

At this moment the attention of all of creation is focused on Earth and her humans. A crew of the highest celestials is pointing the way to the higher path and pouring forth the means to increase our vibrations. Many of our star brothers and sisters have flocked to assist both Earth and their human sisters and brothers. Earth is returning to that glorious state in which she existed prior to descending into 3rd Dimension density. We are all being invited along as valuable participants.

The main point I would to make is that if you wish to move forward, rather than clinging to that which is familiar, i.e. the 3rd dimension, then you must find ways to raise your vibration to that of the 4th Dimension, or higher. That is where Earth is headed. If you wish to remain on this planet you will vibrate at 4th Dimension frequency or higher, period.

Now back to the Institute of Light: Our initial office will be located in Pagosa Springs, Colorado, U.S.A. (a small mountain town in the Colorado Rockies). The Institute is a partnership among the humans of Earth, certain celestials, and our star brothers and sisters, primarily from Andromeda. Its mission is to energize Earth’s transformation.

Earth and her human inhabitants are undergoing a time of great change. Operating from a 5th Dimension perspective, the Institute is dedicated to assisting individuals to become part of an uplifted future on the new Earth. The Institute will guide individuals to shed fear-based lives for love-based ones by achieving greater understandings and higher personal vibrations.

In January, we will begin by offering a series of talks and workshops designed to broaden perspectives and raise vibrations. We will also conduct regular classes, meditations, and discussion groups.

I will be making a presentation, “Catching the Wave of Transformation,” on Friday, January 20, 2012, here in Pagosa Springs, and conducting a workshop the following Saturday and Sunday. My talk will encompass my interpretation of current events, insights into pending changes, directions for navigating the chaos and ascending to the new Earth, and messages from Adrial, Bren-Ton, Justine, Moraine, and others. The workshop will expand on these and engage each participant in sharing his or her experiences.

I will post information about upcoming talks, workshops, and events at: Mark’s Corner. These events are open to all. We have good accommodations for those traveling from out of town. The nearest airport is Durango, CO.

A number of people had contacted me since the Institute was first discussed by Bren-Ton in June of 2009. If you are still interested in participating in any way, please contact me. If you have questions about the Institute or other questions, you may contact me at

Donations will make a difference. The Institute is a Colorado non-profit corporation. Donations are tax deductable under an IRS 501(c)3 ruling. All donations will be used to support the energizing work of the Institute.



P.S. My books, Trillion, Decimal, and One are perfect gifts for those whom you wish to introduce to the larger picture.

Navigating the 4th

The messages at this site are the result of communications between Mark Kimmel and beings who are not the current indigenous humans of this planet. The communications have been verified as coming only from those who are of the highest Christ Consciousness. There are now 143 messages on this site; they build on each other. For their full impact, read them in sequence beginning with September 2008 (archived below). They detail the transformation of this planet, our place in the universe, and a positive outlook for our future – if we are willing to act. I hope, by presenting them to you, that they spark your curiosity, and a decision to join with others to create a new civilization on Earth. As always I encourage you to seek your own unique truth, and live it.

This is my 22nd posting to Mark’s Corner for 2010 that involves communications with non-humans. It is with great pleasure that I again welcome Moraine and Justine, for their experience in the Altair system can give us insights into what is before us.

Greetings: Today we wish to discuss the challenges you will face after you have raised your frequency to the 4th dimensions, after your existing structures and beliefs have disappeared, after the earth shifts are completed, and your lives have been vastly changed. This is the moment when you will find yourselves in a love-dominated civilization. It will be exquisite if you allow yourselves to flow with the changes. We are offering this communication based on our experience on Supsten after we transitioned.

We see fear-based choices and actions gradually subsiding as love based choices and actions replace them. This is an on-going process; one that will continue until love becomes the dominant way of being. Each human on Earth is being asked to choose whether they wish to move into this strange, new love-dominated culture. The summation of these many choices creates a new way of being, a new civilization.

There is a moment when you will shift from linear time to the “now.” One moment you are in linear time the next moment you are in the now. You will perceive that something has changed, in fact all has changed — for you will see all differently. So this is your first challenge. How will you navigate in this new way of perceiving, this new way of experiencing?

The second challenge has to do with your body, in that you will feel lighter. Old aches and pains will be gone. You will have perfect eyesight and hearing, and your touch will be extraordinarily sensitive. Things will smell so wonderful, and their taste will be glorious. This may be quite a pleasant shock. How will you accommodate yourself to this situation?

Many of your actions today are designed to avoid disease. In the 4th dimension, the diseases introduced by the dark energy are unknown. Your bodies will vibrate at a frequency that disease can no longer reside with them. Many of you have become attuned to living with physical disabilities and accosted by disease, how will you now function? How will you go about your new life without worrying about catching one disease or another.

Relationships are the next challenge. Everyone will perceive things a little differently. There will have been no conditioning as to how you are to perceive, no parents to coach you, no prescribed box in which you fit, no rules or regulations. It will be wonderful, but also quite disconcerting.

The next challenge is to manage telepathy, for you will have this marvelous gift after the shift to the 4th dimension. For the first time (for most of you), you will be able to communicate without words. You will merely think a message you wish to send to another and it will be transmitted. Others will be sending you messages also. In fact you will be receiving large numbers of messages simultaneously, and you may initially feel bombarded with the thoughts of others. Your first challenge will be to filter what you wish to receive and what you do not. Discrimination is the order of the day, then learning to manage what you wish to say to another.

Once you have mastered the basics of telepathy you can begin to establish relationships with other people. Keep in mind that everyone will be operating from a basis of love – this alone will be quite a change. There will be no judgments – after all everyone is in the same situation. How do you relate to someone who can receive your honest transmission without the filter of conventional politeness, without the filter of your emotions, or your choice of words?

We have spoken of the absence of fear. Today you are immersed in a fear-dominated paradigm. Almost all aspects of your current environment and many of your relationships are built on fear. Fear of being cold leads you to build shelters. Fear of being hungry leads you to purchase and store food. Fear of rejection inhibits your relationships or may cause you to purchase a certain product. Fear of poverty leads you to achieve and to save. Fear of authority determines your actions. Many of your beliefs are fear based. Those who control you use fear as a major tactic. Fear is the bases for almost everything of your current civilization; no one lives without its effects. How will you react to the 4th dimension where there is no fear to constrain you or proscribe your actions?

One corollary of your fear-based society is that each of you has established a comfort zone in which you live your lives. You have your daily routines. You have your circle of friends and relatives. You have your favorite foods and drinks, and your favorite pastimes. Your comfort zone is the result of coping with a fear-dominated civilization. When you no longer living in your comfort zone, how will you react? Moving forward is an individual choice. Some will make this choice, others will not, as they find that their current situation is too comfortable and familiar to risk giving up.

If you are now highly conscious, elements of the new reality of which we speak may come upon you gradually, then one day you will wake up and all of it will be before you. It is not that you are un-prepared to deal with any one aspect of your new reality, it is that you will now deal with all of it simultaneously. We can attest from personal experience, that this will be quite challenging, as you can no longer fall back on old familiar ways of acting.

We have also spoken of the need for all manmade structures that are based on fear to disappear so that others may take their places. However, do not expect this to happen instantaneously. Supplanting existing constructs cannot happen quickly; constructs based on fear – governments, monetary systems, corporations, and religions – took many years to build. It will take time to reestablish loved-based versions of them. (More about this in a subsequent communication.) Likewise all beliefs that are fear based will disappear to make way for truth.

Will this transition be easy or quick? No. It will be gradual as individuals change. The mass of people changes only slowly, one person at a time. There will be no mass conversion to a basis of love. It will take place one individual at a time. Beliefs change slowly, not in an instant. Look at your own experience, Mark, it has taken several years for you to move from a fear-based individual to one based in love, and throughout this you were quite open to the whole process. You are a natural risk taker. For someone who is by his or her nature more cautious, change will come more slowly. So it is with the majority of the population; they are not risk takers. Only a small percentage of any population are leaders who will show the way.

Layer these factors of the transition onto the changes Earth is undertaking as she moves from a fossil fuel based civilization to one that does not puncture or gouge her skin, and you have the makings of the great transition in which Earth and all of you are engaged. It is any wonder that there was a waiting line to see who would incarnate at this moment? This is exciting stuff. The drama is intense as we watch it inch forward day by day.

The institute we are creating will allow us to come and assist humans to navigate in their new way of being, for the transition to a love based civilization will take some getting used to. For now we broadcast energy, walk among you working in select situations, and interact with selected people. In the future we wish to broaden this interaction and work with many to help them accommodate themselves to all the new things of which we have spoken.

Thank you, Moraine and Justine. I look forward to learning more from your experiences.

Leadership Part III

The messages on this site build on each other; for their full impact, read them in sequence beginning with September 2008 (archived below). They detail the situation on this planet and our place in the universe as communicated to me. I hope, by presenting them to you, that they spark your curiosity, and a decision to join with others to create a new civilization on Earth. As always I encourage you to seek your own unique truth.

You may now download a collection of the messages at this site for free. Go to “Free Downloads” in the right hand column.

This is my 46th posting to Mark’s Corner for 2009. Once again, I am most pleased to welcome back Bren-Ton from Andromeda who will be sharing the last of this series of his messages on leadership in Oneness.

I am happy to rejoin you and share the approach to organization that we would hope to implement on your planet. Intuition is to be cultivated in both the leader and the participants of his team. The value of it in decision-making and action is to be recognized. The opinion of either the leader or a participant, based on one’s intuition, is to be honored. It is a matter of feeling comfortable with this way of decision-making, as opposed to analysis.

Meditation practice is an important part of the new leadership and participant mode. Meditation will serve to connect everyone to a higher way of being. When all members of a team are mediating they will more easily join together in proper decision-making and action. No formal way of achieving meditation is proscribed.

Meditation will lead to a direct connection with God. Only when that is firmly established will the true meaning of Oneness within the team become apparent. Functioning from a place of Oneness with all will create organizations like no other. Seeing projects in Oneness will make their accomplishment not only easier, but will facilitate the highest good for all involved. Training all members of a team in these practices will bear plentiful fruit.

One this is accomplished, the ability to communicate telepathically will follow quite naturally. If one’s conscious mind can be quieted through a meditative practice, then the door to telepathic communication opens. When a leader and his team members are all joined in this close association there is no room for private agendas, nor room for deceit or manipulation, and no room for maneuvering or game playing.

Since you have all be taught to compete with each other, to see each other as different, and to seek your own welfare, this type of functioning will be quite a new experience. Seek out those people who will join with you in this type of an organization. Let the natural leader emerge. Within a short time an experience will emerge in which everyone communicates openly, everyone recognizes the strengths of each person, and in which there is a free exchange of ideas.

There are many other aspects of leadership and organization, such as ethics and leadership training for children, which we will share with you. These will become known, Mark, as you build the leadership institute we have requested of you. By this message we are recruiting those who might join with Mark in building such a teaching institute for Leadership in Oneness. We see such an effort as essential to creating a new civilization for Earth, and have promised to assist in its success.

Thank you Bren-Ton. I am somewhat taken back by your open approach to creating THE INSTITUTE FOR LEADERSHIP IN ONENESS. As you know, I am exploring how this will come about. I hereby announce that I would welcome assistance from those of you reading this message, and would welcome contact from anyone interested in joining with me in this adventure.

In Truth, Love and Joy,

Mark Kimmel
