Mr. Schlueter received his spiritual name Mathues, on the major planetary activation (known as 11:11) of 1/11/92 at 11:11 pm, while meditating on Mt. Shasta. This was one of the many experiences that led him to discover several past-lives that deepened his self-awareness. Beginning at the age of 19, several very powerful, un-evoked Spirit inspired and guided experiences of Self-Realization formed the awareness of a Divine Consciousness, which overshadowed and braided with Mathues at the soul level. The first of many ET contact experience occurred in 1992.These encounters have lead him on to greater quests of Self-Discovery. Ultimately, resulting in activations and initiations that have produced the ability to recall and access inner knowledge and wisdom through a conscious awareness to many significant aspects of the collective oversoul. One such Self-Discovery experience happened in 1997 when Mathues returned from Egypt with the conscious awareness of an activation into the oversoul aspect of the Egyptian Vicar of Hidden  Wisdom: IMHOTEP. Much of that experience has resulted in this body of material. The final integration took place inside the Great Pyramid on 11/22/98.
