History of Mt. Shasta and Lemuria
Long, long ago, a legend of a lost continent called Lemuria was believed to have sunk beneath Mt. Shasta. That ancient continent was thought to have sunk beneath Mt. Shasta with the people called Lemurians living under the mountain. The continent is believed to have descended some 12,000 years ago. They were thought to be the Earth Keepers and protectors of Mother Earth.
The Legend of Telos tells of a crystal city within the sacred mountain inhabited by highly intelligent people, peaceful and able to be invisible to humans. The Lemurians were said to have a mastery of energy, sounds, and vibrations.
There have been numerous stories of lights, lenticular clouds, shadows, and outstanding sunsets. All of these add to the mystical aura of Mt. Shasta.
