Drunvalo Melchizedek Meets Egyptian God Thoth in the Flesh

It’s 1972. You’ve been on a spiritual quest for some time, studying many traditions with different teachers. Today you’re working with an instructor who has been teaching you about alchemy. You’re sitting across from your teacher with your eyes open doing a meditation.

All of a sudden, your teacher disappears before your eyes and you see in his place an odd-looking man. He’s about five foot three and wearing simple clothing in an ancient Egyptian style. The man has gentle eyes and appears to be in his seventies.

This strange man communicates to you. He says that there are three missing atoms in the universe and he wants YOU to find them. Then he demonstrates in a mysterious vision exactly what he means. And then he disappears. Your alchemy teacher is sitting in front of you as if nothing happened. Your teacher didn’t see this strange Egyptian man or know that anything unusual was going on during the meditation.

Twelve years later this being reappears in your life. And now you discover that this is Thoth, a man who is thousands of years old. He tells you he was once a king in Atlantis and is a very advanced soul who had reached “ascension.” But instead of ascending to another reality, he and a small group of others like him decided to stay behind and to remain on Earth until humanity reached a certain level of consciousness. In ancient Egypt he was known as the god Thoth, who taught humanity many important things, including the art of writing.

You continue to have interactions with Thoth until 1991, when Thoth says humanity finally reached that desired level of consciousness. After that, Thoth disappears, supposedly ascending to a higher dimension.

If you are Drunvalo Melchizedek, this is your life.

Drunvalo (born Bernard Perona) is a metaphysical teacher best known for his Flower of Life workshops. These workshops employ a system of meditation and imagery that supposedly activates a sacred geometrical form called the “merkaba” around the aura of the body. This merkaba field is said to do a lot of wonderful things – enabling you to travel comfortably between dimensions, regenerate health, and more.

And Drunvalo says this merkaba meditation was taught to him by an advanced being named Thoth, the same being he met through the circumstances described above.

The description of how Drunvalo first became involved with Thoth was provided by one of Drunvalo’s students, a man name Bob Frissell. Frissell is a rebirther, a Flower of Life teacher, and an author. Find out more about Frissell here: BobFrissell.com.

Drunvalo has released books and DVD’s, and his latest book was published in January 2008. It’s called Serpent of Light: Beyond 2012.It describes various mysterious healings Drunvalo has done with indigenous elders from around world, many of them designed to awaken the Earth’s “kundalini.”

If we go back into Drunvalo’s history a little, long before he encountered Thoth, he had befriended other mysterious, otherworldly beings.

For a while Drunvalo and his then wife were seriously studying Hinduism. Shortly thereafter the following happened:(from his bio here: Drunvalo’s Bio)

Then, one day, after practicing meditation for about four or five months, two tall angels about ten feet high appeared in our room! They were right there. One was green and one was purple. We could see through their transparent bodies, but they were definitely there. We did not expect this appearance to take place. . . From that moment on, my life was never the same. It wasn’t even close.

The first words the angels said were, “We are you.” I had no idea what they meant. I said, “You’re me?” Then, slowly they began to teach me various things about myself and the world, and about the nature of consciousness … until finally my heart just completely opened to them. I could feel tremendous love from them which totally changed my life.

These angels seemed to be rather bossy.

Over a period of many years, they led me to about seventy different teachers. They would actually tell me the address and the phone number of the teacher I was to go see. They would tell me either to call first or just show up at his or her house. So I would do this — and it would always be the right person! Then I would be instructed to stay with that person for a certain length of time.

Drunvalo seems to have been very good at taking orders from these beings. No wonder they kept him so busy with various projects. He never objected to being bossed around.

Now, I personally have little experience with Drunvalo’s work except I briefly viewed one of his Flower of Life videos back in the 90’s, plus I’ve read a couple of Bob Frissell’s books which describe a lot of Drunvalo (and Thoth’s) teachings. The video seemed to show a sincere man, Drunvalo, who was doing his best to describe what he obviously felt was a very important metaphysical concept – teaching people how to activate their own merkaba field. I didn’t really resonate with it, and I soon returned the video to the friend who had loaned it to me.

The Bob Frissell books offer a pretty standard New Age hodge podge of discussions of ancient Atlantis, coming Earth changes, and the transition of humanity into a higher level of consciousness. You find that in a lot of New Age literature.

But the stuff I find the most interesting in Frissell’s writing are his explanations of just what is going on with Drunvalo.

From You Are a Spiritual Being Having a Human Experience:

Drunvalo’s second name is the name for a special class of beings who have attained the ability to move freely throughout the 144 different worlds or dimensions of reality that make up our “octave” – our region of the universe.

He goes on to say that when a person becomes a Melchizedek, they’re faced with a choice. Either they can leave this part of the universe and enter into a thirteenth dimension where everything is very different, or they can remain in this “octave” and serve as a troubleshooter or helper. Drunvalo supposedly made the decision to stick around and be a troubleshooter for humanity.

In order to fulfill his mission it was necessary for Drunvalo to take the form of an ordinary mature human being and to live his life among us without the appearance of being a magical or supernatural entity. It was necessary that he really be an ordinary person in order to communicate most successfully with as many of us as possible. . . As a matter of fact, he actually is an ordinary human being at the same time that he is a Melchizedek.

How can this be so?

This is because Drunvalo is what we call a “walk-in.” A walk-in is a being from a higher dimensional reality who has made a benevolent arrangement with an ordinary human being so that he can occupy a human body and personality in order to fulfill his task. Drunvalo “walked in” April of 1972. The person whose body he now occupies agreed to pass on, in exchange for which his spiritual evolution was sped up and enhanced.

Invasion of the Custodial body snatchers, anyone?

The “walk-in” concept was very popular in the 80’s, but you don’t hear quite as many New Agers talking about it now. The whole idea is a pretty nasty one. The idea that a human would knowingly give up a body and allow another entity to take it over, allegedly for spiritual reasons, sounds like a load of bunk.

And many of these self-proclaimed walk-ins become teachers with a decent-sized following, who become enamored with the “higher energies” and “advanced spiritual nature” of the walk-in.

Why would an advanced being hijack another person’s body? Doesn’t sound very “advanced” to me. This isn’t even a case of “channeling,” where an entity plugs into a person’s voice and speaks through them. A walk-in involves a total personality erasure and a complete body hijacking.

So with Drunvalo Melchizedek we have a few classic Custodial scenarios playing out.

First, there is a mysterious transition from a man formerly known as Bernard Perona to a new persona that is supposed to be in touch with ascended masters and advanced metaphysical teachings.

Second, we have a history of this person getting the bulk of his guidance from three mysterious characters – the “green” and the “purple” angels who appeared to him after he began practicing a Hindu form of meditation, and an immortal, ancient “ascended” master who has hung around since ancient times and is known as Thoth teaching him, too.


This Thoth character does indeed go back a long way. If you return to the ancient Sumerian texts, many scholars believe his equivalent in the Sumerian pantheon of gods was a being known as Ningishzidda. In ancient Greece, this same being was called Hermes. In Roman times, he was Mercury.

This guy sure got around.

The story of Drunvalo and his Flower of Life movement is fascinating because it’s one of the few situations where we have a metaphysical teacher who claims to have been in close, physical contact with an actual Custodian from ancient times, and he derived a large portion of his teachings from this very same being over the course of almost 7 years.

When you look closely at the Flower of Life material, the main theme of it is that humanity supposedly needs to learn how to erect a merkaba field around the body so that we can ascend to another dimension.

The need for ascension is all tied up in beliefs that the earth (and/or humanity) are ascending in consciousness from a third dimensional state of awareness to a fourth dimensional one.

And apparently, according to Drunvalo (and Thoth) humans need to create this energy vehicle which will allow them to make this transition peacefully.

Like many New Age traditions, the Flower of Life/merkaba teachings are bound up in escapism. It’s not really that different from belief systems that tell adherents to prepare for the spaceships to come and rescue them, or even the traditional belief that a few divinely chosen “elect” will be taken from the Earth during a coming Apocalyptic time of Tribulation.

Why are we always so willing to run off with the Custodians and their ships or their light vehicles?

And shouldn’t we question teachings that arise from someone whose body has been hijacked by an outside entity and forced to become a “walk-in?”

If an advanced being really wanted to come down and teach humanity some cool stuff, he wouldn’t need a body to do so. He could hang out in the etheric and inspire people to create wonderful things like an angel or a muse. Or he could probably put in some dramatic appearances in “3-D” as advanced beings like Jesus and Mother Mary may have done.

Somehow, I don’t see Jesus coming down and saying, “Guess what, bub, I’m going to need your body for a while so I can talk to some people.”

“Uh, okay – for how long?”

“Well, bub, do you want the bad news or the good news first?”

“I’ll take the good news.”

“The good news is that when I take your body I’m going to use it to help a great many people, and this will really benefit humanity.”

“Okay. What’s the bad news.”

“The bad news is that you’re outta here, bub. Sorry! Have a nice afterlife!”


Rebirthing – An Opportunity to Become Infested

James Bartley is an interesting writer who covers some explosive territory on his website: James Bartley at Whale.to.

He is an abductee who has dealt with a lot of harassment from a full range of nasty entities, both physical and seemingly non-physical or interdimensional in nature.

His articles are fascinating, especially his section about the reptilian ET’s.

There has long been a question about what the Custodial “gods” or apparent ET’s looked like, and some ancient texts suggests that they were reptilian in nature. Others hint that they looked humanoid like us. Other sources allude to something more extraordinary – the idea that BOTH things are possible, that these beings possess unusual DNA that allows them to shapeshift from a humanoid form to a reptilian one and back again.

One need only to look at videos or photos of George Bush Senior to realize that perhaps the idea of shapeshifting lizard ET’s isn’t so outlandish after all!

And certainly ancient lizards, dragons, and reptilian humanoids figure in the traditions of almost every early culture. So there is something going on with the lizzies – whether they got here before the Custodians, whether they were here all along, or whether they turned up later in Earth’s history.

The problem is, according to many victims of abduction, that they seem to still be around. And they’re not particularly nice.

They seem deeply entrenched within the whole phenomenon of psychic possession and spiritual enslavement which are too often the byproduct of getting involved with Custodial practices (like yoga, channeling, following most religions, etc.)

Anyway, Bartley mentions something very interesting – almost as a sidenote – in one of his articles.

In Rebuttal to a Reptilian in Human Clothing he mentions some weird phenomenon which appear to connect to the New Age practice called rebirthing. He writes about having attended a UFO conference in San Diego:

Another irony about that conference was that the individual at the situation desk at the register was a Host for a Reptilian Entity. This particular entity is summoned by her “Spirit Guides” to visit Sedona Arizona at intervals throughout the calendar year to take part in “Rebirthing Exercises.” . . . . During one of these exercises reptilian astral pods (very dark smoky reptilian shaped astral entities) were seen by numerous witnesses to enter and exit the abdomen of the host whilst the latter growled and hissed as if in a state of possession. The host was merely being “re-infested” and this is done at intervals. This host has all the facial and physical characteristics that mark it as a reptilian hybrid and yet to the unsuspecting “contactee” or “experiencer” she merely comes off as a ditzy New Age La Dee Dah.”

He goes on to mention how the woman in question has left a lot of chaos in her wake because she comes into contact with so many abductees and apparently reptilian energies constantly try to hook into weakened people who have already been traumatized from various abduction experiences. So this woman rebirther is acting as a bit of a “typhoid Mary” type, spreading psychic contagion.

Rebirthing is a popular holistic health technique that uses breathwork to supposedly regress someone to their birth time and uses breath to help the person clear out emotional and psychic trauma that happens to all babies at the time of birth. The idea behind the technique is that we have a lot of birth trauma held within our bodies and it affects us throughout our adult years. Supposedly be reexperiencing birth or “rebirthing” with an experienced coach to guide us through the process in a positive way, we can heal those old traumas and overcome any phobias, emotional problems, or personal difficulties that might have been caused by those original traumas.

Sounds benign on the surface – but the problem is that so many folks in the holistic health, metaphysical, and spiritual movements have at some point actively welcomed Custodial type energies or entities into their lives. So it becomes a challenge finding a healer to work with whose energy hasn’t been compromised already. Some of them have a tremendous amount of psychic garbage traveling around with them, which pollutes any healing work they are trying to do for people. They may be well-intentioned, but they can still have negative effects on the very folks they are trying to help.

Bartley’s assertion that rebirthing sessions in Sedona have only served to cause this woman further psychic possession might not be so far off the mark. Sedona is known to be a hotbed of questionable activity ranging from UFO’s to dark military operations to channelers who are proud to talk with ET’s. Many of these channelers are also healers who work one on one with clients in massage, Reiki, or other hands on healing practices.

Do you really want someone infested with Custodial presences touching you? Do you really think you’re going to feel better after doing so?

I’ve never experienced rebirthing myself, but Bartley’s article certainly raises some legitimate concerns about whether it’s a safe technique to be using.
