Welcoming the New Era

The much-ballyhooed winter solstice of 2012 proved to be a turning point, not so much in, terms of an apocalyptic event on that specific day but more of a demarcation where an intentional shift in consciousness occurred. This was the result of thousands of people synchronizing minds and hearts to prepare for this next phase of our evolution. There were a number of groups throughout the globe praying, meditating, and joining together in physical, etheric, and virtual reality welcoming a new era, providing further impetus to what has been in process for some time, yet has now become increasingly evident. We’re going through some big changes, internally and externally, individually, and collectively. It’s hard to pinpoint exactly when something like this began, as it’s not an event but a process, like the ever flowing movement of Life itself. Yet be assured that it is gaining increasing momentum.

Like the 100th monkey experiment, when enough of us focus our intentions on a better world, a world of cooperation rather than competition, of compassion and forgiveness, rather than hate and avarice, it tips the scales toward a collective renaissance of the best of human nature. Yes, it’s ideal, but as John Lennon wrote in his song Imagine, “You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I hope someday you will join us, and the world will live as one.” It’s when we maintain and nurture these ideals each within ourselves along with others that we can be better human beings and co-create a kinder, more loving world. Doing so individually and collectively will counterbalance and ultimately surpass the darkness that exists in the world.

Yes, the planet is evolving as well and not always to our liking. It has been in an evolutionary process since its birth 4 billion years ago, and will continue to evolve throughout our lifetimes and for generations to come. This shift in consciousness along with a consistent relationship with Spirit will afford a smoother time of living with and adapting to these changes. Most importantly, we are recognizing the need to revise our relationship with this amazing world. To know that we are only one part of the web of life and come to know that we are in relationship with all beings, not better or worse than any, but realizing our personal existence is tied to the existence of all that is on this planet collectively.

So welcome this new era by making your spiritual practices a priority, whatever they may be: Commune with the natural world and the spirit-in-all-things as much as possible. Call on your spirit helpers for guidance during these changing times and make gratitude your number one song throughout the days and nights. Express compassion and kindness to all beings at each and every opportunity, and let Love be your guiding light.

Love This? Never Miss Another Story.

I would only like to add that all the ugliness, greed and corruption we have been seeing is ariseing out of the old structures of thought so that we can connect the dots from what has been the status quo, and the secrets it has been hideing, as well as the previous mind programming that supported it all. This is the stuff we need to re-think and ask ourselves if we really want to continue these ideas in the future.Religions, science, and governments are not bad in and of themselves, but the beliefs they were build on centuries ago were for their time and place of origin, not the world we live in today.Certainly much can be learned from the old ways, but it's time to recognize a metaphor as a teaching tool for an illiterate population, and stop thinking it's a literal Trueth.

- always the guiding light! -
and we pray to follow in universal gladness
gather light
as we go
and loving
as Angels whisper to our soul
