Lemuria: Lost Continent of the Pacific

Reluctant Medium to “Discover” Lost Lemuria

By G G Collins (Copyright 2013) Copyscape Do Not Copy

Much as Atlantis is the enduring mystery of the Atlantic Ocean, so Lemuria is to the Pacific Ocean.  I suspect that in the coming decades as deep underwater exploration improves, we may learn the truth about these fabled lost continents.

Much has been written about Atlantis, and so I turned to the lessor studied Lemuria for my next book, Lemurian Medium. One man, James Churchward, has studied Lemuria extensively. However, Churchward always referred to the continent as Mu. He wrote several books about the subject and maintained that tablets in India were his source of reference.

Most interesting was the knowledge that Asian countries such as Japan and Thailand recognize Lemuria as their Motherland, much as western culture believes the origins of mankind are found in—what is to us—the Middle East.

Ruins have been found off the coast of Japan near Yonaguni. Here’s a short video of the discovery. Notice that a large sculpture of a face is quite similar to those on Easter Island. There are other longer videos for a lingering look at this fascinating underwater city:

Further, some of our Native Americans are reputed to be descendants of Lemuria, particularly those in the southwest United States. But also the Mayans and Aztecs. It is believed by some researchers these people are of Lemurian heritage and either traveled by sea to settle in the Americas or were lucky enough to escape the great cataclysm that sunk an entire continent and killed millions.

I was so taken by the research and the stories of Lemuria I wanted to use it in one of my books. If Lemuria was the Motherland, it would be interesting to see how it would change, not only the history books, but the great religions of the world and even how we think of ourselves.

It certainly will be interesting as more of our undersea mysteries are solved. In the meantime, it has been a pleasure to learn about Lemuria and use its mystical and mythical—but are they really?—elements in the  forthcoming Lemurian Medium (due out December 2013) as Rachel Blackstone travels the astral plane in search of a friend.

For more information:

Check out the History Channel’s Ancient Discoveries episode called “Lost Cities of the Deep.” I tried to find a free site to watch it, but couldn’t. It’s available at the History Channel and Amazon. Or catch a rerun. This episode includes the Yonaguni discovery.
