What the # is a "photon belt"?
The Photon Belt (also called the Photon Band, Photon Ring, Manasic Ring, or Golden Nebula) is a pseudo-scientific belief, largely linked to some parts of the New Age Movement. It postulates that a belt or ring of photons is going to envelop the Earth, causing a cataclysm and/or initiating a spiritual transition (referred to variously as a "shift in consciousness," the "Great Shift," the "Shift of the Ages," the "Zero Point," or the "Ascension Point"), with the time period leading up to "the Shift" referred to as "The Quickening." The concept of the Photon Belt also ties in to various phenomena including belief in extraterrestrial intelligence and 2012 millenarianism.
The core of the Photon Belt beliefs is that there is an immense belt of photons orbiting around the Pleiades. According to some New Age beliefs, Earth will pass through this belt of photons, resulting either in humanity's elevation to a higher plane of existence, the end of the world, or both. Authors Virginia Essene (born 1928) and Sheldon Nidle (born 1946) write that the Photon Belt represents a temporary window for spiritual transition during which time humans can reach a higher level of existence, which they term the "galactic" level.

Something is definitely up. Ive been looking at the stars since i was a child..something is a changing. I met a bloke that lived on the streets most of his life, he too says something seems off with the sky. The world is ripe for a miracle indeed.

This mystical belief has nothing to do with science, and in addition the concept of a belt of orbiting photons is absurd. Photons are light, not particles, and they move in nearly straights lines, not orbiting around anything, let alone the Pleiades star cluster, which is 400 light years away.
Quotes from the book Through the Curtain (1983) by Viola Petitt Neal, Ph.D. “At present, our solar system is moving at a tremendous rate through space and is moving into a vast ocean of frequencies and substances which is and will alter the life on all planets and increase the radiations of the physical sun as well as produce changes spiritually. One of the results of this will be a much more rapid growth of plants. There will be alterations in the physical bodies of man and animals and a close link between the physical and etheric brains.” pg 255 November 16, 1963 Night Class Recalled by Viola Petitt Neal Cosmic Energies and Their Effect on the Planet Earth The class had to do with changes and conditions from the point of view of physical changes in the planet earth. He began by saying that there are many changes taking place today in the physical constitution of the planet. These changes are more basic than just surface earthquakes or local weather changes. During the time of Atlantis when the continent sank and practically the whole face of the planet was changed, there were impacts of cosmic energies which caused the earth to make a jump in its orbit. This means that it was slightly farther away from the sun. This is somewhat like the jump of an electron in the orbit of the atom. There was also a shift of the poles and axis of motion. The earth is not molten at its core as is sometimes said. At present the solar system has moved into great streams of Cosmic Energy in space. Some of these energies, striking through the surface of the earth, have the effect of melting substances and they do become molten, although ordinarily they may be in a solid state. It is as if these radiations from space kindle numerous fires under the surface of our earth and we have volcanic activity and also shifts at deep levels. It is not solid straight through. Therefore, when these fires are kindled by the penetration of cosmic radiations there is a flow and shift of masses which cause a vast number of small earth quakes all over the surface of the earth. These are increasing every day ands will continue to increase because deep inside the earth much shifting and change is taking place. Wherever there are major fault lines or cracks closer to the surface it is expected that large major shifts will take place. 1 Courtesy: Susan Joy Rennison, 4 th March 2011 www.susanrennison.com & www.joyfirepublishing.com Quotes from the book Through the Curtain (1983) by Viola Petitt Neal, Ph.D. Numerous breakthroughs of molten substances are taking place in the floor of the Pacific Ocean and to some extent in the Atlantic. This is heating the water in local areas and disturbing deep sea life. The whole coastline of the Pacific will change. These major changes started with the vast earthquake in Chile in 1960. But, as you will note, there have been major earthquakes in widely separated areas -- Agadir, Yugoslavia and Persia. The change in the planet is total, not local. It hits local areas from time to time where the stresses or fault lines receive We must explain a little more clearly how these cosmic radiations affect the planet. You have a good example in a recent discovery in science which will somewhat explain the action of these radiations. The laser beam will instantly make steel molten when it strikes it. The beam can travel through space or the atmosphere without appearing hot, but when it strikes steel for example it will burn a hole in it instantly. This beam can also be directed for certain kinds of surgery to do a specific job. These cosmic radiations of energy are of many different types. Some affect only certain minerals or solid substances and not others. At this time, the solar system is moving through a new area in space where great cosmic streams are and tides affect the sun and all the planets, first of all, on the physical level. This has happened before in the time of Atlantis approximately 25,000 years ago. These changes come in cycles of about 24,000 years. It is a cosmic spiral and cycle difficult for man to identify because he has not been able to span in his awareness such vast reaches of time. Much that is now considered to be authentic geology is not correct. However, it the best man can achieve by applying reasoning to what he is able to observe. These radiations will raise the frequency of the planet and affect consciousness. The actual substance, physical, astral and mental, is even at the present moment being raised. This means that the vehicles of expression for the human kingdom will of necessity be built of substance of a higher frequency. Therefore, a
