Why did the Olmec  Civilization Disappear?

Page 2


Back to Page 1





They disappeared for the same reason that the Maya, Inca, Romans, and countless other civilizations did. All of them disappeared after reaching the pinnacle of their expressed level in their civilizations, this is the way it has been and this is the way it will always be. 


All researchers need to understand, humans like their civilizations are created from consciousness. This takes place prior to any physical creation, regardless of the level or purpose. Failing to account for the pre nonphysical process will only accentuate the mystery. In other words, science will never finds out why civilizations end any more than why animal species become extinct. The so called destruction reasons that researchers give, be it famine, war, drought, or anything else are just tools of choice. The combined mass consciousness of those in their specific forms, be it animal or human use these tools to exit from a reality.


A nation is a group of spirits, the incarnation of certain concentrations of energies and specific elements of a soul group, or the combination of groups. Each epoch brings to the Earth Reality a different group of spirits and a different race. When this race has fulfilled its tasks of carrying out the new ideas and developing their new civilization to its fullest desire it ceases. It functionally has reached its purpose and with this the loss of interest to continue what has been already learnt. The purpose is to evolve and grow as this is the primary driving force behind all spiritual levels. After the accomplishment has been achieved no further incarnations are needed in this level of vibration (civilization in this case). The interest shifts to the next level and in this level a new pre-organized co-creation. These co-creations include new civilizations on Earth or somewhere else and typically in different time frames (for further understandings see “The Schematic of God” book on this site).


In every race or culture there are individuals who don’t quite “keep up with the evolutional pace of the majority. So at the end of the civilization’s epoch period these individuals find themselves at lower vibrational states then the majority, and thus need to remain behind. They must continue the reincarnate cycle, as new physical members in an old dying civilization. They are, in a polite way of saying it, prisoners of their own doing, as no one is holding back anyone in this process. They must continue to develop on earth in that level before they can move to the next level of spiritual development. In some civilizations these individuals can recycle for hundreds of years before achieving this. This is not new as it is still going on today with some using their many lifetime experiences to become cultural leaders, this is without achieving higher vibrational states of evolution.


This is the reason why nations experience a sudden decline after achieving a high point in civilization. The highly developed “fathers” (typically the older souls) of the nation are followed by degenerate and weak-willed descendants, and the nation which was once great gradually falls into debility and disrepute. This is very noticeable in all civilizations and can be easily potted out in the Mayan history as an example. The last true “fathers” or builders of the Mayan civilization started to leave around 350AD but it took another 500 years after that to dissemble it for good. This epic transformational time period was not just isolated to the Maya as many other cultures responded to the cycles’ end with disassembling of their civilization. As this period of time (around 400 AD) took place the ones leftover (lower vibrational ones) were in higher concentrations and a new stage of dismantling took place. During the Mayan dissembling others from adjacent cultures moved in with their agendas and political abilities. These lower vibrational ones easily meshed in with the ones left behind of equal value. This can be seen in the newer structures and reliefs at Chichen Itza with skulls and sacrifice imagery being added to the older Mayan benign structures. Unfortunately some modern researchers have a tendency to paint the entire history of a civilization with the same brush. They typically find more artifacts from the newest levels and thus use these dismantling times to form a template for the entire history of the culture. This would be similar to a future archaeological study on a World War 2 Nazi mass grave site as evidence that our twenty first century culture practised mass sacrifices. 


I was shown that over a few generations the “Shang Shamans” (my way of separating the two groups) became more powerful and secretive with their power. This was not met with acceptance by the bulk of the population and especially the shamans belonging to some of the “Original clans”. The cultures that united in the past now started to separate, through segregated shamanic clans. As the elite “Shang type” of shamans became more powerful they also became aware of their fragile security, as they were outnumbered. Their shrines (the power source) were now being created in secrecy to protect them. This usually meant burying them under the floors of their compounds. In the La Venta pyramid Complex “A” there are more than 50 separate caches and shrines by one count, including buried Jade celts, polished mirrors made of iron-ores, and five large shrines composed of Serpentine blocks. One of the Serpentine caches is estimated to contain 50 tons of carefully finished serpentine blocks, covered by 4,000 tons of clay fill. (For more understanding of Shrines). Among the unearthed shrines in Complex A were 3 rectangular mosaics each roughly 15 ft. × 20 ft. with each consisting of up to 485 blocks of serpentine. These blocks were arranged horizontally to form what has been variously interpreted as an ornate Olmec bar-and-four-dots motif of the Olmec Dragon. The photo shown below of the mask is the proper orientation of this dragon's face and is an icon of the Shang dragon se

Shrines are the main tool of advanced shamanic processes.  They can be created from many different formats, but the results, if done right are always perfect. Shrines allow specific focused states in to any direction of thought, research, or teachings. It is through these angular connections that alignment into the Universal Grid allows a shaman to enter specific “porthole” for direct energetic connection. A shrine can be created with bowls, stone, plant material, and so on. It is the arrangement of the energies (of the objects), combined with the placement to one another (the facilitator’s part), in correlation to the Earth and Universal Grids that is the secret to it success. Rendered down; connecting present desires, with one’s own energy, in correlation to "All That Is".


There is no mistake that one can find these angles in any site around the ancient world, if understanding of the process is there. Two dimensional angles found in mosaics are obvious but the third dimensional angles are escaping researchers. These semi vertical angles are referencing time frames as well as spiritual energetic focuses. Below are a couple of examples of this. The photo on the left is an Olmec shrine what was found buried under the ceremonial Complex A site at Le Venta. The same three dimensional upward angles are seen in the photo to the right from Bryn Cader Faner, located in Wales.

The Olmec Figurine Shrine, "La Venta Offering No. 4."




La Venta Complex #3 also has a very interesting shrine in it. It is called # 4 and is composed of 16 miniature statues and six inscribed celts. It too was buried under the floor of the complex. Some unknown time after the initial burial, the site was opened again through the courtyard floor (clearly, someone knew exactly where the burial was located) and excavated to the level of the heads of the buried figurines. After this reopening, the shrine was covered up again and never opened again until our days.

Olmec Figurine Shrine 



The fascination for this shrine has crossed many paths and avenues of research. One interesting study of this shrine came from a researcher by the name of Carolyn E. Tate of Texas Tech University. She states; “Their most significant feature, the pose, is compared to a similar pose found in spiritual practises of China and India.” She goes no saying; “The flexing of the knee to straighten the spine is a very specific position that in ancient China is the beginning of the Tie Chi exercise, a position of meditation and of the union of the body the cosmic axis.”

Olmec sculptures



What is a Shaman: for more information on the subject.






My teachings on this subject:


This shrine is a collage created by 17 different shamans. Each one of them is from a different cultural aspect of the “Shang” Shaman Council. Each figurine not only represents themselves, but was embedded with the energy work that they were proficient in. In the sculptures shown below are the capsulated energy of each shaman involved in this council. Together they create a cache that is no different than the caches mentioned from North America (see Cache Page). Each shaman gave an extremely valuable part of themselves to this shrine. Each position and angle is connected to many of the 360 degrees of the Universal Orb, and through a spiral arrangement. To facilitate with this careful spiral alignment the miniature statues were fixed in to place using white sand that could be adjusted. Photos show 16 figures and 6 inscribed celts but originally there were 17 and 7 celts!  


It doesn’t take much imagination to see something is missing from this arrangement. In the photo shown above one can see there is a gap in the celts as well as in the standing figurines. These were the positions of the seventh celt and the seventeenth figure.


I was told the missing figure was the most powerful and elder of this shamanic council. The original intent of the shrine was to “ground” the dying culture into the physical, to give them a longer lasting time period. They had seen the end of their way of life and were trying to stop this end from reaching their level of reality. The seventeen figurines and seven celts were buried to ground the specific individual energies of these powerful members and their consenting laws. Unfortunately the seventeen and the elder died shortly after this shrine’s creation. This meant that he was more connected to nonphysical realities and not as powerful now in the physical. He had transcended into the next level of their evolution, but his essence and membership was still part of the shrine. This was interpreted by one of the members as a leakage of energy and justification to have this part removed from the shrine. Anyone working with shrines will understand this position of choice. The concerned shrine member decided to reopen the shrine to a level where they could see the elder’s statue and remove it along with one celt.


This was an act that defied the seventh law inscribed on the 7th celt, as this law was a statement of non-interference between shamans. To compete their decision the celt that governed this non-interference law had to be removed. Unfortunately the shrine and the re arrangement did not work. The reason is that the attempt was not in line with their evolution. The evolution and the dismantling of the culture was next in line for all of them, and their intellectual approach was not of service to them.     


In the photos above one can see the original positions as compared to the modern display of them. Unfortunately the modern display shows no understanding of how important position is for connecting to the appropriate energies.


One does not have to be a sculpture to see that the miniature sculptures were created by different sculptors with different material.

Ancient Chinese shaman mirrors

Olmec mirror and Discoidal mirror

The top objects are from Asia and are shaman’s mirrors. I was told these concave mirrors were filled with water and used in similar ways that a psychic would use a crystal ball. The two mirrors on the bottom were also used in the same way. The one to the left is an Olmec mirror which were typically made from iron ores. The mirror on the right bottom is call a Discoidal and was used in the same way but could also be applied for other shamanic purposes. It is from the American Woodland Period and was found in the Mississippi Delta in Leflore Co. It was carved out of a very hard rock called Pyroxene, a type of Gabbro. I was told that the bottom pattern in this type of mirror actually helped in seeing the visions being researched by the shaman. 


This highly polished  Discoidal is actually broken in half. I digitally spliced the mirror of itself together to show a complete tool. While working with this piece I was told this shaman saw a scene in their future that was very horrific. To lock this event out of the future the Discoidal was broken. Working with my broken Discoidal generated more teachings of why some shamanic cultures broke their vision bowls. The Maya were one of these cultures. They used the bowls to see into the future and by smashing the bowl it would prevent or it could lock the image in its “current state”.

Shang Cowrie

Cowry Shells, the Sacred Migiis Shell


The more one researches into the "common ground" of the Olmec and Shang connection the more similarities  pop up. Below is another one of these connections:


Quote from:  http://the-wanderling.com/midewiwin.html

The sacred Migiis shells (cypraea moneta) used by the Midewiwin, have been found in various North American earth mounds, lost and buried long before the first known white contact. Since they only grow in the South Pacific, their prevalence in pre-contact days is one of those mysteries that is difficult to explain. It is known these same shells, cypraea moneta, have been immediately valued and desired by nearly every so-called primitive people when introduced by traders. It is as if every tribal people recognizes something very "special" about this certain shell. Other cowries are larger, more colorful, and are liked for their ornamental value, but cypraea moneta, the Migiis shell, is revered.

Quote from:  http://www.healthfreedom.info/who_are_the_anishinabeg.htm

The sacred Migiis shells (cypraea moneta) used by the Midewiwin (Medicine) Society actually originate in the South Pacific, not North America as many believe. The First Prophecy (or Fire) prepares the Anishinabe (The People) for an Exodus out of their original land. The prophet asks them to carry Migiis shells to help then remember where they came from. By the time of the Second Fire the People have lost their way.


The Shang Dynasty

 Inscriptions and archaeological evidence show that cowrie shells were regarded as important objects of value in the Shang Dynasty (c. 1766-1154 BC). In the Zhou period, they are frequently referred to as gifts or rewards from kings and nobles to their subjects. Later imitations in bone, stone or bronze were probably used as money in some instances. Some think the first Chinese metallic coins were bronze imitations of cowrie shells found in a tomb near Anyang dating from around 900BC, but these items lack inscriptions.

Ancient Chinese knew of the North American West Coast mountains as shown in the middle photo. This is a bronze incense burner of the fourth or third century B.C. representing the mysterious mountain paradise of P’eng Lai, which the Chinese believed existed on the other side of the Pacific. It was customary to represent P’eng Lai in this way, with three dimensional peaks and contours, often inlayed with precious or semi-precious stones. Such censers were a powerful influence in the development of relief maps during the third century BC.

Yin/Yang, Zhou writing, pottery, jade carvings, and the Omnibus Power Sign suddenly appeared along the shores of Western Mexico. Archeologists have called this proto-Mayan culture “Izapan” or “Tajin.” This was an entirely new cultural development in Mexico, because there were no antecedents in the Olmec Empire. This Heartland of Fu Sang was also the habitat of a sacred plant called the ling-chih. It was the psilocybin hallucinogenic mushroom.

The Tuxtla Jade Statuette (c.300 BC—300 AD) was found near the West Coast of Mexico. It is covered with contemporary Zhou Chinese tortoise-shell writing that was previously unknown in the region. It is conclusive evidence of significant contact between Mexico and China across the Eastern Sea (or Pacific Ocean). The statuette is in the National Museum of Anthropology and Archeology in Mexico City.

Chinese Votive Sword Found in Georgia suggests Pre-Columbian Chinese travel to North America 

In July 2014, an avocational surface collector chanced across a partially exposed Chinese votive sword behind roots in an eroded bank of a small stream in Georgia. The 30 cm artifact is possibly a one-of-a kind find in North America and is another example in the growing list of seemingly out-of-place Chinese artifacts suggesting Chinese travel to North America in Pre-Columbian times.

About 90 years, before Columbus first sailed into Caribbean waters, the Ming Chinese dispatched flotillas under the command of Admiral Zheng He on multiple voyages to the lands around the Indian Ocean to acquire exotic items and materials.

The Admiral's first expedition consisted of approximately 185 vessels:

  • 62 or 63 baoshan  or “treasure ships” were constructed for the first expedition, 440'-538' long by 210' wide, four decks, nine masts, displacing an estimated 20-30,000 tons, approximately 1/3 to 1/2 the displacement of a current large aircraft carrier.
  • Machuan or “horse ships”, 340' long by 138' wide, 8 masts, carrying horses, timber for repairs and tribute goods.
  • Liangchuan or “grain ships”. 257' long by 115' wide, 7 masts, carrying grain for crew and soldiers.
  • Zuochuan or “troop ships, 220' long by 84' wide, six masts.
  • Zhanchuan warships, 165' long, 5 masts
  • 27-28,000 estimated sailors, soldiers, translators and crew members
