December 21st, 2012 is upon us! We have heard quite an assortment of predictions, ideas, fears, hopes, and wishes throughout the year about the end of the Mayan calendar—from doomsday to collective enlightenment and everything in between.
The diversity of opinions about this day not only shows the variety of souls incarnated on the planet at this time, but also the array of voices inside each one of us.
We are all mentally linked in what is known as the collective unconscious, the noosphere, or the akashic records, which basically refer to the collective mental field we share in this physical experience that further expands into what scientists call the zero point field, which holds the memory of the Universe.
Since we are connected mentally, we unconsciously share all the different ideas, perspectives and concepts, as well as the contradictory feelings and impressions, of our co-creation on the planet. Yet our sense of individuality allows us to discriminate, choose, and create a separate reality for ourselves. It is the birthright of each soul to have free will, which means that we can each choose to vibrate at different frequencies and experience different realities throughout our journey.
As Within So Without, As Above So Below
So some can live in heaven while others abide in hell, even though we all share the same planet or plane of existence, because both the planet and ourselves are multidimensional beings: what we perceive as reality is a combination of layers or vibrational holograms that include the collective unconscious along with the individual belief system and self-images we each have accumulated through our life (and lifetimes).
You always have the choice to shift your reality, just like you can switch the channels on your TV if you don’t like what’s showing, except that inner shifting requires awareness, effort, and self-discipline. Whatever you unconsciously believe in and how you perceive yourself becomes your truth and is reflected back in your reality like a mirror—in the way people and circumstances make you feel about life and yourself. If you are willing to explore and transform what is being reflected, you can gain both insight and control over your individual mind—your ego.
Do you believe that 12/21/2012 will mark the end of a cosmic cycle and the beginning of a new special one? Do you agree that our planet will be in a perfect elliptical alignment with the Milky Way and the central Sun of our galaxy, opening up a portal of higher consciousness? Or do you believe that the end of the world is near—as yet another planetary cataclysm in the evolution of the cosmos—or that everyone on the planet will be “relocated” somewhere according to their evolutionary level?
Are You Ready to Shift Your Reality?
Perhaps you believe something else, or you don’t want to believe anything at all and prefer to stand by and see what happens. After all, astrologers affirm that the alignment with the central Sun will yield extraordinary consequences on the level of our global consciousness, while astronomers state that there is absolutely nothing special about this Winter Solstice. It’s the usual opposition between science and spirituality that we know so well in the West.
Yet this polarization is also a reflection of how we each feel, moment to moment: do you follow reason and logic (the masculine), or do you believe what your intuition and inner knowing (the feminine) tell you? Are you going to dismiss the possibility of global change (or worse yet, believe in doomsday), or are you going to awake with Mother Earth and hold fast to the vision of a better world, one where the Divine Feminine will regain its place to balance how we relate to ourselves, to each other, and to the planet?
Again, the choice is yours, and whatever you choose to believe will be true because your reality will reflect that back at you—on both the individual as well as the collective world. Yet there is a global awakening that can no longer be denied, and personal and world events are shaking everyone up—to question, to wonder, to ponder about life on Earth and our purpose here, and revisit how we have been doing things and living our life. In other words, to awaken us all.
It’s Time to Commit To Our Consciousness Shift
While I have no doubt that December 21st will open up a huge portal of rebirth and self-ascension (spiritual recognition and freedom), it’s clear that the date is a landmark, a reference point in a process that began in the past and will continue to unfold at a faster pace every single minute of every single day in our human existence. In this process, some are already very open to receiving a higher sense of connection and soul integration on this particular day, while others will simply continue awakening at their own pace.
Yet December 21st, 2012 is a very important moment in our collective journey, and the energy it is bringing about has become increasingly palpable—on the mental, emotional, and physical levels. Perhaps you’ve felt your energy shifting, pulling, and withdrawing between 12/12/12 and 12/21/12, just like the ocean undertow rushes the water inward before becoming a wave, breaking by the shore, and merging back into the sea. For some, this pull may be even more intense, like a rip current, and reflect a greater disconnection from life (and of course, many souls are also meant to leave this plane at this time).
Maybe you’ve experienced sadness and depression, or a sense of disconnection, or more fears and doubts than usual, or all kinds of physical symptoms (some that you hadn’t had in years and others completely new). It is all part of the adjustment, as the Divine Feminine is helping us to get ready to let go of one of our biggest fears: the fear of change, so we can shift into a higher dimension. As this fear of change dissolves, consciousness will be able to flow more freely and other fears will follow suit in their dissolution.
This Winter Solstice holds much hope, light, and awareness for those who are ready and willing to receive them. As Mother Earth shifts and reshapes herself, and the lunar cycles continue to help us awaken the Feminine within by gradually disconnecting us from 3rd dimension density and re-connecting our physical body to 5th (through highly emotional 4th), we are all offered the support to raise our vibration if we let go of our dysfunction.
This is a time when we are gifted with the opportunity to regain spiritual freedom as a global community; the time we’ve been waiting for for thousands and thousands of years: the time of our rebirth and reconnection with life. Up until now, most of us have been living life half asleep, on auto-pilot, as passive spectators, unaware of our own creative power and purpose on the planet. We’ve been faking life, so to speak, pretending to be who we are not and denying the pain and ugliness before and inside us.
It is truly a time to rejoice because it is a time of rebirth! Now the question really is, will you continue dragging your past and wounded shadow self, or will your heart open up like that of a newborn to fully embrace life with innocence and love and joy? In other words, are you committed to look within and heal all your hurts and fears to start living life fully and embracing who you truly are with no fears and no apologies?
Celebrate and Rejoice in the Birth of the New Earth
It is both thrilling and scary to know that we are becoming the co-creators of the New Earth. Why? Because it means that we have to take absolute responsibility for everything we are, feel, say, and do, and to take full responsibility and charge means we have to look within and embrace all of who we are—the good, the bad, and the ugly—for without self-awareness we won’t be able to regain our power and remember who we are and what we came here to do in the first place.
Self-knowledge is the portal to awareness, and there is simply no other way for us to allow more consciousness to flow into our personal and global experience but to open up to our self-exploration and become each a witness to this beautiful Creation and embrace, honor, and sustain all life on Earth.
So first of all, I invite you to hold the days of December 20, 21, and 22 as sacred. Be in ceremony, celebrate, and honor this time. You can create your personal ceremony, and it can be as simple as lighting a candle to invite the light of awareness with your openness and intention, or something more elaborate to utilize the alignment of these dates to propel you!
More than the usual resolution on January 1st, utilize the powerful energy of this special Winter Solstice to plant your intentions and your heart’s desires for yourself and the New Earth. Hold your vision with faith and hope and yearning and focus, so that they get carried up and out, and mixed into the vibrational seeds from which a New World is to be born and blossom. Be in gratitude and joy, for that is your true nature, and that is where we are all headed back to at this time of rebirth!
“Happiness is the very nature of the Self; happiness and the Self are not different. There is no happiness in any object of the world. We imagine through our ignorance that we derive happiness from objects. When the mind goes out, it experiences misery. In truth, when its desires are fulfilled, it returns to its own place and enjoys the happiness that is the Self… Thus the mind moves without rest alternately going out of the Self and returning to it.” ~Sri Ramana Maharshi
And as the process unfolds and continues into the next 3-4 years, make a commitment to your self-exploration, self-growth, and ego dissolution, to raise your vibration and the Earth’s with awareness and love. contact me to receive guidance and support throughout your process, so that it becomes easier and faster to hold onto your Higher Self. Happy Day of Rebirth!
