Lemuria: a lost ancient civilization full of mystery and intrigue, also referred to as Mu or the Motherland of Mu.
Lemuria is an ancient civilization that was lost to time, not unlike the fabled city of Atlantis, which it actually preceded. In terms of location, Lemuria is said to have been found in the Southern Pacific, in an area between Asia/Australia and North America.
Zoologist Philip Sclater, in 1864, published an article about a species we know today: lemurs. He was baffled how they seemingly found fossils of lemurs in India and Madagascar but not in the Middle East or India. From this, he believed that India and Madagascar used to be connected to a much larger continent. He hypothesized that the reason lemurs were able to migrate to Africa and India from Madagascar was a wide, triangular expanse of the landmass that reached across the Indian Ocean. This landmass was called Lemuria and Sclater proposed that it connected to India’s southern point, western Australia, and southern Africa before sinking to the ocean floor.
This theory would eventually lead to the ancient supercontinent Pangea
From then on, Lemuria as a concept was started to be studied by other scholars. Ernst Haeckel in particular sought after the “missing link” in this region. He hypothesized that the fossils belonging to the first humans had unfortunately sunk to the depths of the sea. Others believed the lost land of Lemuria simply “went” someplace else entirely.
The Lemurian peoples themselves are believed to have been highly evolved beings on top of being incredibly spiritual and connected to the land. So much so that people today feel a strong connection to that ancient civilization.
Physically, they are believed to have four arms and much larger, hermaphroditidc bodies. They could even be the ancestors of both humans and lemurs! There is some debate as to how human they look: some believe they look like highly evolved humans while others propose they likely looked much more animalistic. The unifying factor, however, is that they were incredibly tall.
Approximately 14,000 years ago, these people were thriving alongside the culture of Atlantis. But from their ancient prophets, Lemurians received word that the Earth was about to undergo an incredibly major change: the Great Flood, also known as the end of Atlantis.
On one hand, Lemurians believed that other, less evolved civilizations should be “left alone” to pursue evolution at their own pace- on the other, Atlanteans believed these less-evolved cultures should be controlled by both of them. These disagreements would lead to thermonuclear wars- wars that weakened both continental plates. At the end of it all weakened spiritually and physically by violence, the Lemurians decided to construct a separate society within Mt. Shasta, hidden from the rest of the world
Though the commonly believed theory is that Lemurians have simply gone extinct, some believe Lemurians are still around and are living lives hidden away from the rest of us in the areas of Mt. Shasta. It is said they built the city of Telos therein, which now supposedly houses about 1.5 million Lemurians. Curiously enough, Mt. Shasta is also home to both alien activity and Bigfoot sightings.
It gets even more interesting: in 2013, geologists unearthed evidence of a missing continent exactly where Lemuria was said to have been situated eons ago. They found fragments of granite in the ocean just south of India, from one of the areas said to have been part of Lemuria. And where exactly? Right along a shelf that stretches hundreds of miles towards Mauritius, on the southeastern end of Africa.
It is believed today that- especially if one feels a strong spiritual connection to them- you can connect with them through spiritual practices involving crystals (which they used as communication tools that imparted their messages of healing and unity.)
