LORI TOYE is not a prophet of doom and gloom. The fact that she became a prophet at all is highly unlikely. Reared in a small Idaho farming community as a member of the conservative Missouri Synod Lutheran church, Lori had never heard of meditation, spiritual development, reincarnation, channeling, or clairvoyant sight.
Her unusual spiritual journey began in Washington State, when, as advertising manager of a weekly newspaper, she answered a request to pick up an ad for a local health food store. Upon entering, Lori was met by a woman at the counter who pointed a finger at her and said, “You have work to do for Master Saint Germain!”
The next several years were filled with spiritual enlightenment that introduced twenty-two-year-old Lori to the most exceptional and inspirational information she had ever encountered.
This began when she was awakened one night by the luminous figure of Saint Germain at the foot of her bed. Later in the same year, an image of a map appeared in her dream. Four teachers clad in white robes were present, pointing out earth changes that would shape the future United States.
Five years later, faced with the stress of a painful divorce and rebuilding her life as a single mother, Lori attended spiritual meditation classes. While there, she shared her map dream experience and, encouraged by friends, she began to explore the dream through daily meditation. The four beings appeared again and expressed a willingness to share the information. Over a six-month period, they gave more than eighty sessions of material, including detailed information that would later become the I AM America Map.
Clearly Lori had to produce the map. The only means to finance it was to sell her house. She put her home up for sale, and in a depressed market, it sold the first day at full asking price.
She produced the map in 1989, rolled copies on her kitchen table, and sold them through word of mouth. She then launched a lecture tour of the Northwest and California. Hers was the first Earth Changes Map published, and many others have followed, but the rest is history.
From the tabloids to The New York Times, The Washington Post, television interviews in the U.S., London, and Europe, Lori’s mission was to honor the material she had received. The material is not hers, she stresses. It belongs to the Masters, and their loving, healing approach is disseminated through the I AM America Publishing Company operated by her husband and spiritual partner, Lenard Toye. Working together, they organized free classes of the teachings and their instructional pursuits led them to form the School of the Four Pillars which included holistic and energy healing techniques. In 1995 and 1996 they sponsored the first Prophecy Conferences in Philadelphia and Phoenix, Arizona.
Other publications include three additional prophecy maps, eight books, numerous videos, and more than sixty audios based on sessions with Master Teacher Saint Germain and other Ascended Masters.
Spiritual in nature, I AM America is not a church, religion, sect, or cult. There is no interest or intent in amassing followers or engaging in any activity other than what Lori and Lenard can do on their own to publicize the materials they have been entrusted with.
They have also been directed to build the first GoldenCity community. A very positive aspect of the prophecy is that all the maps include areas called, “Golden Cities.” These places hold a high spiritual energy and these are the locations where sustainable communities are to be built, using solar energy alongside classical feng shui engineering and infrastructure. The first community, Wenima Village, is currently being planned for development.
Concerned that some might misinterpret the Maps’ messages as doom and gloom and miss the metaphor for personal change, or not consider the spiritual teachings attached to the maps, Lori emphasizes that the Masters stressed that this was a prophecy of choice. Prophecy allows for choice in making informed decisions and promotes the opportunity for cooperation and harmony. Lenard and Lori’s vision for I AM America is to share the Ascended Masters’ prophecies as spiritual warnings to heal and renew our lives.
