The Shift of 2012

Photo taken by Elizabeth Uchtman

My sister and her family vacationed near the Mayan Ruins this Summer Solstice and my niece took this photo for me.  I share it with you along with relating an experience I had around the same time, Summer Solstice, that speaks to this human evolution we in now.

The experience for me is that the veils of delusion are lifting.  As I lifted my head and sat upright after the nap, my waking thought was that I could stop blaming others, I no longer needed that mechanism as a defense. I received this healing, heartily.

Whatever work I was doing in the dream state of that nap, I woke with multidimensional awareness: I had the feeling awareness that I could release blaming others, the words came, and I saw an image like a nail being removed from my body. The imaged nail was this pattern of blame toward others. It seemed counterintuitive to me that the pattern of blame toward others was a nail being released from me.  As I relaxed into the experience, I realized that the defense of blaming others was actually a harm to to me. The visceral experience, as well as the thought consciousness, was that I no longer needed to do this. I am no longer trapped in the pattern of that conditioned response.  I have choices rather than blame others and in the days and years ahead, I look forward to optioning those other choices. The binding is released.

We all have defense mechanisms and whatever they are, in a well-lived life, they are time-limited.  Hopefully, we don’t keep them padded around us forever.  In this ripe time NOW, all of us can see through the veils of choices, traits, characteristics that keep us bound in ways we no longer need to be bound.

Whatever “reason” we are evolving a liberated way of being us, whether it is the Mayan Calendar reset button or that we are at a transition time between ages, periods of 26,000 years called the Great Year, and since the 1960’s we have been revolutionizing from the Age of Pisces into the Age of Aquarius, or whether our Earth is spinning out of the section of the sky related to Kali Yuga, a period of Darkness, and into the photon belt of lightness, or a synchronized blend of all of this and more, we are in a New Dimension, living new awareness.

How is this showing up for you?  Are things ending, including relationships you did not ever think would end?  Do you have new perspectives on your life and circumstances that you had not ever imagined before? Do you long for creative expression?  Do you long for community, connection with others where you can be totally who you are and they can be who they are and there is no dominion or hierarchy over others? Are you finding your voice at home and/or at work?

Are you seeing new possibility where you do not imagine possibility before?

One of the prime freedoms of this time is that we can now release fear. There are so many ways to frame this conversation about releasing fear. Here is one perspective:  Earlier in this post, I mentioned The Age of Pisces; one signature of the Piscean Age was duality. Fear was a hallmark of Duality, as someone always had to be right and someone always had to be wrong, that is what duality is, two poles of opposites. In duality, someone had to be up, someone had to be down.  Someone had to be rich, someone had to be poor.

In the operating system of this new Age of Aquarius, this is no Duality, there is Humanity. We are all part of, we all belong, we all have choice and voice. Yes, we are in a transition phase and the transition is not yet complete. We are transitioning, though.  In this transition there is a personal choice to make regarding leaving fear behind.

Many people are becoming fearless. Look at how many blogs there are now, how many people are reporting their own experiences, their own news. Mainstream news is fueled by independent reporters and witnesses. Communities are also rising up.  Look at Facebook and Twitter and all of the social media and the countless blogs on which you can use your authentic voice to comment and share your wisdom.

Living in and being bound by fear is not part of the New Humanity, there is no room for fear, it does not compute. Fear does not compute because the essence of this New Dimension is Love. We are at an open portal of love, a place as a Humanity we have not been before. This open portal of living, being and receiving Love is not a mind thing, it is a heart and a body and an inner knowing thing.  As fear shows up before you, consider that you have choices. Notice, and choose consciously, not with habituated, conditioned reaction.  Take a breath, feel the wisdom in your body, your own inner knowing and ask your mind to relax. Voice what you know in your deepest heart.  You may find deep within you that you know, All is Well, despite how things look on the surface. Befriend your own inner knowing.

You may have noticed that I was gentle with myself as I realized one of the patterns that bound me, blame. I am very gentle and loving in my own healing and I am gentle and spacious in my work with clients.  We all have our own answers within us us, regarding how to travel through day to day and how to make this big transition into the new age.  If you find that you would like an intuitive mentor, a guide, to help you get to the source of your own inner wisdom, consider working with me.  I have been consciously working on this Age transition for the past 47 years and I am ready!  How about you?

For the past year the daunting task on the top of my “this is unfinished” list, was to immerse myself in social media. While not shy in face-to-face social encounters, online, I was always and consistently a lurker. An introvert on the Meyer-Briggs scale and with a natal astrological chart that speaks to reserve and with familial conditioning that enforced quietude, I felt stuck, and I must admit, like I was missing something with my aversion to social networking.  I did have a facebook account, however, I rarely used it and missed at least one party invitation because I didn’t use it.

The dear people who help me with my blog kept telling me that if I wanted traffic to pick-up, I needed to get more active with social networking. My first inclination was to use Twitter, as at one earlier personal reinvention phase, I identified as a “poetic journalist.”  I felt that the brevity of tweets would be more my style.  Six tweets in as many months did not really do the trick for immersing me in social networking. Building traffic to my blog was one goal, an equally important goal was  increasing my connection with like-minded, good-hearted community. Social media is a prime way this connection happens now.

I am someone, maybe like you, who makes “Wish Lists” on important dates, like Solstices and Equinoxes and Cross-Quarter days and New Moons.  Over the course of this past year, these wish lists reinforced my yearning to be connected to a larger community through social networking.  One day last week, out of the blue and with perfect timing, it happened.  I woke up ready to go social network.  Twitter was, again, my first conscious choice, however, my subconscious seemed to have other plans, as I found myself logged into facebook.  Up to that point, my facebook account had a picture of a beach I love, one of the North Shore of Lake Superior beaches just outside of  Duluth, Minnesota.  In this new connection with social networking, I wanted to show my face, so started this connection by uploading a photo of me.

Within one minute of that upload I received a “like” and a comment from a beloved colleague in my local community, someone I had not seen in many months. This experience was synchronistic and it felt like magic! I was safe in this strange new world. I was intrigued and eager to join in, to play. In this last week on Facebook, I have made many discoveries of things I might not have encountered otherwise.  I am also communicating with people I love who live at a distance.  Email didn’t seem to work and while our conversations are not private on facebook, we are connecting about important things and I feel part of the connection. I am linking up with friends of friends and maybe you know how great that feels. To someone who has sat on the sidelines, waiting, this is like a whole new world: alive, animate, connected!

I am still learning my way around facebook and I  go slow, inching my way further in day by day.  I have found my voice.  I haven’t given up on twitter, either and I am currently looking at Pinterest for the beauty of it, and something called livejournal to see if that is a match for me.

What we want in life takes some brewing; it takes time to clarify the wish, make it and then nurture it as we are guided to do. Then, all of a sudden, it happens. That one morning I hopped out of bed knowing my destiny that day was to activate my social networking.  I did it and the results are amazing.  I am reminded of a quote, hanging on my office door, the author is “anonymous” to me, so if you know who wrote this, please let me know.  Here is is

No matter what it is, if you really want it, and if you get out of the way

it will happen.  It must be. It is Law. It can be no other way.

It is the way this Universe is established. If you want it

and you relax, it will happen.
