- This is all written material from an intuitive/prophet
named Ruth Montgomery. The following paragraphs come directly from her
1979 book "Strangers Among Us". (The comments like this in parenthesis
- Her guides told her to look for an absolutely unavoidable
shift in the earth's axis and crust around the beginning of the next century.
Regardless of any thought or deed by those in physical form and despite
all the efforts of scientists and engineers to avert it the shift will
- The shift will have its warnings. The revolutions of
the earth will be slowed in the last years of this century. The weather
will be worsening in most areas. (This is already old news). The storms
will become increasingly violent, with heavy snowfalls, strong gales,
and increased humidity. There will be rumblings beneath the earth, and
the trees will sway. Shortly before the actual shift, there will be two
specific types of warnings. The eruptions of ancient volcanoes in Mediterranean
islands, South America and California will result in pestilence, and shortly
there after earth tremors of major proportions, affecting wide land-masses
in northern Europe, Asia, and South America, will provoke tidal waves of
- These, then, will be the forerunners of the shift itself,
and for days and nights before hand the earth will seen to rock gently,
as if soothing an infant in its trundle bed. They said some will recognize
this as the time to remove themselves quickly from the seacoasts and other
exposed places, and while that exodus is occurring there will be increasing
earthquakes, and volcanic eruptions in flat areas that had previously shown
no sign of cones. Some will remain despite the alarms, disbelieving that
a shift will occur; and some , deciding that it is a good time to return
to spirit, will refuse to leave their homes.
- The earth will hesitate in its orbit prior to the shift.
In daylight areas, the sun will seem to stand still overhead, and then
to race backward for the brief period while the earth settles into its
new position relative to the sun. In nighttime areas, the stars will seem
to swing giddily in the heavens, and as dawn breaks the sun will seemingly
rise from the wrong place on the horizon. Those who are capable of reaching
safety will see the earth's surface tremble, shudder, and in some places
become a sea of boiling water. Water will pour over and cover many areas
of our present continents.
- Simultaneous explosions beneath the earth's crust will
bring new land above the surface of the waters, as other areas are swallowed
by the sea. We ask that you picture a giant wave, higher than a ten-story
building, racing toward shore. Impossible to escape it, so in that moment
of terror it is well to put aside fear and think only of the good that
is to come by passing into spirit. Conquer fear, and one has risen above
the battle. For the survivors there will be anguish and hartache, but also
exhilaration in having withstood the ferocity of nature, and mst of those
remaining will feel that god saved them for a purpose.
- There will simply occur drastic climate alterations.
Some cold places will become warm and some warm places will freeze over.
Countless numbers of humans, animals, and birds will freeze to death where
the new poles settle.
- Ferocious and devastatingly high winds will sweep away
most above ground structures. New York City will vanish. Florida will scarcely
survive, except as scattered islands. The southern states bordering the
Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico will be drastically altered, including parts
of Texas. In the west, the remainder of California will disappear beneath
the broiling waves. Canada will be in a warmer latitude and much of it
will be relatively safe from sinking or destruction by tidal waves, not
a bad place to be if survival is your choice. Washington D.C. will be devastated,
but not totally destroyed being near the mountains. Government workers
will carry on in the previously prepared shelters there, beneath and within
the solid rock.
- Virginia Beach will strangely survive, as most other
seaside resorts disappear. Whole areas of the eastern and western United
States will be deluged. Hawaii slides into the sea. Those who want to remain
in the physical body will be thinking of moving to inland areas before
- We do not mean that the elderly should flee the sunbelt.
Rather, they should give serious thought to whether it is worth the effort
to make drastic alterations in life-style in their declining years. Civilization
will diminish as the earth changes wipe out or render useless hydroelectric
plants, housing developments, office buildings, skyscrapers, dams, refineries,
telephone lines, dock facilities and more. (Gee, hanging out at the mall
won't be an option any more). Cities will be in utter chaos.
- Suburbs will be the first areas thronged by weary refugees
form metropolitan centers scavenging and stealing to keep their bodies
alive. Her guides said that at the time of the writing preparations were
already well underway for the problems of assimilating a huge influx of
souls crossing over simultaneously. Ultimately whether you find yourself
with or without a body she wants to point out that our soul's are immortal
and we should not worry about surviving as such. She states that standing
up to the stresses and helping others will forward your souls progress.
(I happen to like the body I've got and plan on getting to a safe place
so I can keep it). She says that the shift will also eradicate some of
the evils of the present age along with sweeping clean the beastliness
and cupidity that surrounds us. (I guess that means there won't be any
more wrestling, football, boxing or The Man Show).
- Serenity and love toward your fellow man are important
to the new world she sees ahead. She like many authors sees a brighter
future for those that are left and sees a flowering of a civilization in
which the best of man's instincts are given full range. The shift will
eradicate mind control and closed societies, because all peoples will be
working together for survival.
- Those who fear the event should think of the exciting
movies they have watched, such as Star Wars, and realize that they will
be privileged to witness one of the greatest events of all ages. It is
like a marvelous solar flare that would bring all out of their houses to
watch, and to tell their grandchildren about, so why not feel the same
way when one is actually a part of the great happening. Those who survive
will 'dine out on the story' as the phrase goes, for the remainder of their
lives, telling the new arrivals about it, and pointing out where there
used to be land and now is water. Think of the thrill for those hundreds
of miles inland, to peer out the next morning and discover that they are
now living beside the sea!
- There will be much to commend this experience, so do
not think of it as a diabolical era. Her guides say millions of people
will survive the shift in their physical bodies. (I guess this means there
will be enough people left to make a few friends). It will be an interesting
fascinating, full of challenges and opportunities.
- There are also records from many great civilizations
that have come and gone before ours which will be found after the shift
according to Ruth. (This fits in with the regular orbit and earth changes
caused by Planet X. Every approximately 3650 years, each time a great civilization
gets going, X comes along and sets it back. The history taught in schools
is just plain wrong and the evidence proving this increases every year.)
- Her guides have said this shift is a cosmic event, something
big to study, watch and help out with in our part of the universe. Thus
UFO and alien sightings will be on the increase. Apparently there are many
terrestrial organizations that have known about and have been preparing
for this event for decades. (I guess that means I'll be a little behind
in this regard. I'm not planing my escape until the year 2000). These people
have planted fruit and nut trees and have stored grains for future needs.
Some are already teaching basic survival skills, and some have stored their
documents in safe places. There will be safe areas. As the time approaches,
these will be made known through Brotherhoods and inner awareness so that
those wishing to survive in physical being will be aided in going there.
(Safe places is a subject I'll cover later.) Acquiring skills that we can
share or barter with others is especially valuable preparation.
- For many years now a quiet trend has emerged. Some are
learning proper use of the soil, others are acquiring medical training
or midwifery skills, leaning how to work with fabrics, leather, and skins,
developing herb gardens, drying fruits and vegetables for preservation,
fashioning pottery from local clay, and discovering how to harness water
power to run machines off the grid system. Everyone who wants to survive
would do well to lean a few basic skills that can be shared. They would
also be wise to gather such simple equipment as needles, sharpening stones,
knives, axes fish hooks, hammers, and other hand tools that are not electrically
operated. (Ruth offers us another warning.) All of us are aware of the
catastrophic conditions that often result from a massive power failure
in our cities, with the resultant looting and rampaging through the streets,
the food spoilage, and the lack of fuel. We know what havoc can occur when
an unusually heavy snow storm paralyzes traffic, halts deliveries, and
blocks garbage collection. If pandemonium is created by such relatively
isolated occurrences as these, it is mind-boggling to think of the worldwide
chaos that could result from a shift of the axis. Most distribution and
transportation systems will collapse, and if people are without basic skills,
and without knowledge of how to work together, they will not survive.

things settles down) --mark h
