Airports are those strange in between places where you’re neither at your old destination nor new yet and the past year has felt quite like that. They are exciting, emotional places but they do require paperwork to be filled out and passports stamped. Even if we feel over the process we can’t go back. We’re all packed. The plane is here. The engines are running. We just have to keep moving forward and see where the heck this plane is taking us, otherwise we will stay stuck in no man’s land.
You may have felt like no stone was left unturned. If you were very conscious in many areas but say your self-love was still sitting in the basement or your power was still holding back like a wallflower at a 1950’s dance – back down into the deep levels of your subconscious you had to go discovering: where am I still frozen? Where am I still holding back and why? What am I still not allowing myself to receive? What am I still afraid of?
For a lot of us, 2013 held the energy of post-natal depression. We came down from the high of pregnancy and labour, and were left holding the baby with a mixture of excitement, love, relief, overwhelm and the sobering reality that we were responsible for looking after the precious gift that is life here. If our systems and structures are sick, we need to heal them or create new ones. If our planet is in bad shape, we need to change our ways. This isn’t a Disney movie. No-one is going to swing in and wave a magic wand and make it all better in a flash of light. In many ways we felt like we were standing at the beginning of a whole new life with no clue how to move forward, and all we could do was just take one day at a time.
At the start of our awakening, it is a very personal process. As we evolve however, and particularly as we now enter a new evolutionary cycle as a whole humanity, our awakening becomes more of a collective experience and has a global purpose as well as personal. We are awake to live more conscious lives yes – but we are also awake to contribute to the creation of a more conscious reality here on Earth. This is something we have been gearing towards for years, but now is the time for this next phase of our awakening to be activated.
Most of us did not assume the whole world would magically go from dysfunctional to perfect overnight. It was enough to know that more light was due to shower down onto the planet (and it has been) and from there anything is possible! We knew that this light would greatly assist everyone’s efforts toward living a more conscious life, and that together we would (and will) use that consciousness to create an entirely new world through our collective actions, initiatives, ideas, choices and energetic contributions no matter how big or small.
We felt that this new consciousness would manifest in physically tangible ways overhauling every system we have: health, education, housing, food production, politics, the economy and media. We looked forward to everyone finding out about advanced technology, free energy, global hidden agendas, and the existence of our galactic neighbours and visitors. We looked forward to this knowledge finally becoming mainstream, with the feeling that this would finally release us from the prison-like reality we have been sold as the reality.
The good news is, this is all happening as evidenced by the baby steps occurring but boy oh boy oh boy it is taking a lot lonnngggeeer than we had anticipated. Sure, from the perspective of our higher dimensional selves it’s all swimming along just great, and as time is an illusion it’s all happening in the blink of an eye. But from our human perspective, wow, being here with an absolute knowing of our potential and having to live within the confines of a restricted reality that has contained and confined the collective consciousness and potential of that consciousness, has been gruelling: mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually.
And just when we felt we were past the hardest part of the journey, we turned the corner and wait, what??
· Emotional seas with giant swells that had extremes of highs and lows.
· Energetic storms electrifying our sensitivity receptors so that yay (?!), we get to feel everything with more depth: our own emotions and those of people on the other side of the world. Woohoo for unity consciousness.
· Gigantic waves of light hurling us into the abyss of issues long healed (or so we thought), and pushing us to expand into what versions of ourselves we know not.
· The resistance to change army (eg global elite) going into over-drive with their tactics, striving to maintain power and control at any cost.
· Being pushed off a cliff into the void with no notion as to where or to what or with whom you may be going! As exciting as this is, it brings up all our fears around our vulnerability, security, survival and alone-ness. It brings up all our doubts around our true abilities, creative potential and what we deserve to receive.
Holy *#&# it has been one intense year. In a practical sense, I think that most of us know that great change takes time. And to give us as a collective humanity some credit there is no denying that millions of people have awakened this year, and we can tell that from the growing numbers involved in activism, the type of information being shared on social media, and the kinds of conversations that are happening with family members, friends or colleagues who up until recently would never have had ‘those kinds’ of conversations.
However, I also think that we did expect something more obvious to shift in a more global way by now. Something to indicate that efforts toward the creation of a more conscious world will from now on be more easeful, more welcomed and more supported. Perhaps a huge world event or revelation that would really make everyone sit up and take notice.
Yet, the Fukushima situation has been pretty much ignored by the mainstream media and global governments while slowly poisoning people, food, the air, water and marine life. Whistleblowers come out only to be vilified while the real traitors to humanity keep on being celebrated as leaders of our community. One has a right to wonder: what on Earth will it take for things to change?
So I’m asking these questions as I write and the response that comes for all of us reading is: You are looking for things to change within systems and structures of the old paradigm. Those systems and structures are built on old paradigm foundations, held together by old paradigm rules and values. They cannot bend in the way you want them to.
The change you are seeking is happening all around you, only you haven’t been trained to look among ‘the ordinary people’ for signs of change. Your measure of confirmation of change has always come from an external authority, and that is why so many of you feel that you will only truly believe things have changed once the President announces full Disclosure regarding the existence of those from other planets and star systems, or once mainstream media start reporting accurately on chemtrails and false flags and holistic cures for illness.
Those things will happen one day, but they are not the markers you should be waiting for to verify that change is taking place. Those things will be an inevitable response, in some cases with dragging feet, to the tidal wave of knowing that is racing through the population of humanity regardless of what governments and mainstream media are trying to uphold as ‘truth’. For too long you have handed over your power to those in power, and now even as you who are awake know it is time to step into your power, many of you are still waiting for some sort of sign or declaration from those in (the old) power that we are in the new energy!
It will not come from them. It will come from you, the people. The old leaders are not the new leaders for your new world, and so they cannot be the ones to lead you into it. Do you understand? Those who are open will respond to the tidal wave of new energy coming from the people, and they will bend to answer the call for new ways of doing things.
Yet we tell you this, the power of the new leadership comes from you, the people not from any one leader or leaders. The new ‘leaders’ will be those who truly act on behalf of the people in deed, not just in word.
