I AM America

I AM America is a publishing house founded to publish and distribute the I AM America Map, a map showing a set of predicted Earth changes that will affect the United States in the near future, and related teaching materials. The map was received in a series of channeled transmissions to Lori Toye, a farmwife and mother of three children. In 1978 Toye had become the student of the ascended masters in the tradition of the "I AM" Religious Activity. In 1983, four beings she recognized as ascended masters appeared to her in a dream and showed her a map of North America that indicated places where dramatic changes would be occurring.

Toye did not act on her dream but over the next years shared the content with several friends. They all encouraged her and in 1988 she began to meditate on the dream and the prophecies associated with it. Eventually the four masters reappeared and initiated some six months of channeling activity. Within the messages was a detailed set of prophecies of coming change. The prophecies were attached to a message of coming catastrophes and the possibilities of choices that would lead to new opportunities.

After receiving all of the material, Toye decided to sell her home and with the money, have the map printed. It became available in September of 1989. She then launched a lecture tour through California and the Northwest. The following year she met Lenard Toye, whom she eventually married. They established I AM America.

The map and associated prophecies suggest that the coming changes will be signaled by the arrival of a huge meteor that will set off various faults and volcanoes around the Pacific Rim. A series of steps will follow, including the melting of the Arctic icecap and a shift in the Earth's polar axis. Among the major changes will be the inundation of the American West Coast, Florida, and the Mississippi River Valley. Following the change, five golden city vortexes will arise.

These changes were to begin occurring at the end of the 1990s, which obviously did not happen. Around 1996, Toye and her husband began to back away from the literal interpretation of the prophecies. They began to emphasize the message of the map as an opportunity to exercise choice and bring in the ultimate golden age that is to be focused in the five golden city vortexes. They have noted that it is possible to begin to build the golden age immediately without waiting for any Earth changes. Each person can begin to act for the environment, work on a project to improve his/her community, and initiate efforts for self-improvement. Each person can also visit one of the golden city vortexes and feel its very different energy level. Meanwhile I AM America continues to distribute the map and its associated products.
