Arcanum: Ascension Thrones of the Ancients (May 2014)

Season 1, Episode 10
Available worldwide

Images of wheels with wings feature prominently in early Christian artwork. Many have speculated that these are portrayals of alien space craft or inter-dimensional portals. But if we look for an advanced technological explanation for these images, we may be missing the greatest secrets in all of human history.

As we look to the Book of Enoch and examine the details of Elijah’s ascension, we see these depictions in an entirely different light. These winged wheels become vehicles for ascension and resurrection. Thus we have the symbolic representation of the Merkaba, from Jewish mysticism, which unlocks even deeper secrets of transfiguration and resurrection.

Clare and William Henry explain that these images of ascension thrones, depicted as wheels with wings and eyes, represent the crossover of Merkaba mysticism into Christianity in this presentation originally webcast May 13, 2014.

Hi William...I wrote a blog with another twist on the Bags or purses of the Sumerian Eagle men.
Just another perspective. So happy they put you on Cosmic Disclosure with Corey Goode.

There are many letters, symbols, and written words within many of the paintings. Have you studied what they say??

I love Claire and William Henry's Arcanum series. Truly original insights and interpretations. Thank you Claire and William.

Although I find these episodes eye-awakening, I am reluctant to believe that all who descend or descended to the Earth have unconditional love for humanity. Just as those who can be from God descending to Earth, so can the others with their own agendas. Those of the lower frequencies but with high technology can arrive through star gates with their vehicles (star ships). Those of the higher frequencies can transport from star gates without them. And, from what I've read, Enki and Enlil created man to serve as their slaves for mining gold. So, they may be viewed as 'gods' because they possess advanced technologies and sciences, but they are not the one true God. I think we need to remember such things. That is, as there is good in our universe, so there is also evil.

EXCELLENT approach to these subjects adding validity to the work of others like David Wilcox, Regina Meredith, Jay Weidner, Dr. Steven Geer (...the list goes on)
in a manner that no one else has really done and certainly not to the degree that I have seen.

Bringing forward these myths and histories in conjunction with amazing classical art from all over the planet! Thank you Both for your hard work and your lovely unspoken love and camaraderie that you share...all of which is inspirational!

We just bought a house, I was listening to your series while setting up the Creators' Temple room, some of my deities are Jesus, and Krsna!!
I felt it auspicious that you had spoken of them together. I was blessed by that.

The Hare Krsnas also teach the communion with Radha Krsna through worship of deity (idols) and meditation on art work of Radha Krsna... IT IS WONDERFUL TO HEAR THIS from a non-devotees

I feel it is a responsibility to our Human family to remember our True Beingness, as One ascends so we lead the way for others... being the change we NEED to see in the world,

This is one of Gaiam's original series for which I really wish we could get transcripts. This episode in particular is so full of information, on so many different levels, that I cannot take notes fast enough for follow up later. Any chance of transcripts??
I love these episodes, and the rainbow body information comes at a critical juncture for all of us. Thank you William and Claire.
[Edit: I just found their website at and there are books, videos and pdfs available there]
