The Opportunity of Now
The Solstice that occurred on...December 21, 2006...marked the 6-year countdown till the close of the 5,125 year Mayan Great Cycle!
Based on this synchronization, this is a very important moment to align ourselves with our highest vibration and intention, and to pray and gather in the spirit of love and peace; rejoicing for the fulfillment of this Living Prophecy.
As we get closer and closer to the culmination point of 2012, each year brings greater and greater acceleration and transformation. As the cosmic climate continues to intensify, we are being given the opportunities for quantum leaps in our own evolution. It is essential that we all deepen our willingness to grow; to grow into our true power; to grow beyond our fears; to grow in our cooperation with each other and with our Mother Earth and her transmutations.
We are in a cycle that is challenging us in order to strengthen us that we may rise as the Warriors of Light which we have come here to be. In this process of refining and maturing ourselves, we are being held accountable by the Universe for all our beliefs and deeds. Therefore this is a time to be as impeccable as possible in our relationships and all the ways we utilize our energies day to day. No moment or interaction is insignificant, for each one demonstrates the level of our consciousness. That said, it is absolutely essential that we radiate Compassion and Forgiveness, towards ourselves and our faults and blindspots, and towards the shortcomings and hypocrisies of others. Especially powerful is to also forgive the dark forces at play in this Universe who have so marginalized their own light that they try (through many various means) to dominate others and the Earth in order to achieve a sense of power - a result of being so disassociated from the true power of the Heart.
Forgiveness and Compassion are critical forces because not only do they cleanse our souls and liberate our beings from old, toxic energies, but they also remind us of the key lesson of these times: We Are All Related! We Are All Interdependent! Therefore, to not forgive someone for the fear they operated from, is to hold a painful separation towards a part of ourselves. This is a pivotal moment to make amends with any and all beings (incarnate or disincarnate) that we have experienced disharmony with. If we cannot do it directly, then it is also very effective to work astrally in meditations of forgiveness and compassion so that we may clear our karmic webs, making space in our Souls to receive ever-greater clarity of how to navigate through this cycle of Acceleration. Also included in this invitation is to forgive ourselves and all beings for the many ways we have disgraced the Earth Herself, sending true Compassion towards our actions born of ignorance.
Based on where we are in this era known as The Quickening, there really is no time to wait or procrastinate these matters of the Heart. For it is the quality of our Heart's Conscience that will determine the unfolding of the rest of our Cosmic Initiation during these times. By humbling ourselves through this process of honoring our Relations, we are strengthening our Inner Being - our Essence Self which will Guide us in all matters. In addition to this work, it is always recommended to align with the energies of Prayer, Reverence and Gratitude. Accessing these energies allows us to acknowledge and attune to the Sacred Dimension which governs all existence that we may fortify ourselves to endure the unfolding of this Living Prophecy. Let us each communicate with the Earth and Universe directly, always asking for guidance of how to navigate and how to fulfill our unique role in this sacred Dream!
Truly no one can predict the outcome of this "Time of Great Purification." Based on the multi-dimensional nature of this Universe, there is no one reality transpiring, but rather multiple simultaneous realities which reflect the many shades of Consciousness dwelling on this Planet.
