When women find out they’re pregnant they are given a due date, even though a full term pregnancy is considered anywhere from 38-42 weeks and only about 5% of women give birth on their due date. As a woman approaches that date she often starts to feel a sense of excited anticipation mixed in with anxiousness about the birth.
If she goes over her due date a whole plethora of other feelings start to come up: what if she doesn’t go into labour naturally? Is everything okay with the baby? She’ll usually start to receive a lot of pressure from other people to induce, even though she actually has not yet reached full term. At the most extreme end some women are even told that their body isn’t capable of birthing this baby naturally, even though that is only true for a very small percentage. This pressure is not helpful and adds extra unnecessary stress to what is already a very emotional, challenging time and to what also should be a very sacred, joyful time. For this reason, it would be fantastic if women were give a due ‘window’. Women could relax into their due month in a more easeful way than having their, and other’s, expectations all piled into one set pressure-laden date.
This is what 2012, and particularly 21 December 2012, has become. One big fat due date looming over everyone with a crazy amount of pressure. What on earth is going to happen if we wake up on 22 December and ‘nothing’ happened? What if we wake up and humanity is still pregnant as it were, with no signs of the birth of a new world? Well, it wouldn’t be true that we’d have no signs. Just like a woman heading into her last days of pregnancy most definitely has signs that birth is imminent one way or another, we too are experiencing signs that we’re on the brink of a massive quantum leap in our human story. However, also like the woman, we too are having natural moments of feeling like we are going to be ‘pregnant’ forever, like this ‘birth’ is never going to happen, and it is taking all our strength to trust that everything is unfolding exactly as it should be, exactly on time.
Perhaps it would have been a good idea to have a ‘window’ of time heralding this transition rather than so much focus on one date. This isn’t an attempt to deliver news that this shift isn’t going to happen, nor is it one of those broadcasts saying oh yes it is happening but it’s actually going to happen in 2014...2020....2356. Humanity IS shifting and with so many people collectively feeling the same way, receiving the same messages, having the same insights, I think we can all agree that yes, we are most definitely ‘pregnant’ and yes the birth of a new chapter for us all is happening. What is unknown at this point are the details, the when, the how, the what. We can have ‘practice labour contractions’ (all our current up and down emotions) and we can view ultrasounds (have visions) all we like, but I think until we see something mind-blowingly extraordinary we are like that pregnant woman who on some small level doesn’t actually believe she is having a real-life baby until it is born and then she finds herself saying over again ‘oh my god, it’s really a baby!’.
In the grand scheme of things, we’re in the last days of a 26, 000 year cycle. In pregnancy terms we’re in the last few minutes before midnight of the due date. Of course all our fears are coming up. Of course we are starting to worry and doubt that it will happen on time, if at all. Of course we are placing a huge amount of pressure on one date to deliver massive change.
This period of time is going to test our inner faith like never before. Not our faith in a religion or in something we’ve read or heard or even in a calendar. For most of us the insights, feelings and knowings we have had about this time have come from within – confirmed by external sources that align with what we feel inside sure – but at the end of the day, those external sources have only confirmed, validated, triggered and awakened what has always been inside us. So what many of us are feeling now, in between contractions, in between moments of trust and clarity and joy, are moments of a crisis of faith. What if all we have believed about why we are here is not true? What if we are not going to experience a quantum leap of change in our lifetime? What if humanity keeps bumbling along, making small steps of progress here and there, but nothing like the massive shift we have always envisioned? What does that mean for us? We’re asking ourselves: “What does that mean for my personal self...who in the heck am I then and what in the heck am I even doing here?” This is pretty much what a lot of people are thinking and feeling right now.
Okay, so let’s go there for a second. Does this theory make any sense at all? Does it make sense that you always intuitively knew something that you read about years later, a knowing that was shared by others, by indigenous elders, by ancient prophecies, for that only to be some unrelated co-incidence? Does it make sense that every bone in your body is telling you we cannot go on how we have been going, for it to go on in the same way?
Many people say it would take a miracle for things to change on this planet. But actually no, it wouldn’t take a miracle. What it would take is for truth to be revealed. The new ways we have imagined are not science fiction inventions for some future generation to witness. They are real, already existing, only hidden from us for far too long. The problems we face as a humanity are not without a solution – only the solutions have not been possible as long as we’ve been told ‘there isn’t a cure for that’ or ‘we don’t have the money to help’ when in actual fact there are plenty of cures and there is plenty of money – only not in the right hands. Interestingly enough, as I’ve shared before, the word Apocalypse that has been associated with these times in such a doom and gloom way actually means ‘that which was hidden to be revealed’. Now that sounds liberating and empowering, far from doom and gloom.
Imagine a huge gigantic bubble. Now imagine a much smaller, tiny bubble, floating around within that gigantic bubble. The gigantic bubble represents our greater reality, filled with all that is possible AND all that exists right now - not in an energetic potential sense but in a physical, literal sense. Cures to health issues and clarity around the causes, free energy technology, teleportation portals, access to other dimensions, sustainable housing, access to free, clean water for all and so much more. The smaller bubble contains humanity - oh how it contains us.
Once upon a time there were a handful of people among that humanity, flailing their arms about. They could see through the bubble to the greater bubble. Then more people joined them, they shouted and shared their knowledge but they were told they were crazy, or imprisoned or burned at the stake. Right now millions of people are rocking that bubble with every ounce of their strength, arms and legs pushing wildly. People have had enough of being contained, enough of the restrictions and limitations, enough of being deceived and lied to by those who do know about the greater bubble, those who think humanity 'isn't ready' for the truth.
The anger, the passion, the despair and frustration you are feeling now is coming from both exhaustion about the fact humanity is still in this bubble, and your knowledge of what lays available beyond it. The bubble IS ready to burst so keep the rocking going!! Now is not the time to sob that we've had enough. Everyone has a different job so whether yours is to focus on a better vision for the world or get out there and do something positive, it's all good. It's time for all the rebels, the warriors, the mothers, the fathers, the children, the awakened ones, the lightworkers, the truthseekers, to declare our collective right to the greater reality. THAT is our new world.
Many are feeling a sense of disillusionment as we approach this looming ‘due date’ in front of us. For many, we’ve always known that how life is here is not how it is meant to be. For others, that knowing has gradually awakened. We’ve seen people working in jobs they hate, struggling financially, suffering with their health, unhappy emotionally, and we see a very different potential that we know we are here to create in our lifetime. We’ve seen that the systems in place here – politics, media, education, medicine, housing, social care – are upside down and back to front. Nothing makes sense. It doesn’t make sense that we can find money for wars but there are constant budget cuts in health and education. It doesn’t make sense that whistleblowers from governments, military, banking and corporations are pressured to keep quiet or are ignored, meanwhile the media is reporting the latest Hollywood divorce! Well it does make sense when you know that things have been set up to serve a few at the expense of the many, but the many are waking up now and we are shaking that bubble!
Yes there has been change. Yes there has been progress. Yes there are millions more awakened people now than twenty years ago or even two years ago. Yes there is more consciousness around certain issues. I think that what has kept us hanging in there is knowing that a great shift will occur in our lifetime and in the recent years really starting to see signs that it’s actually happening. Yet at the same time something that’s causing our deepest heartache right now is: What if it doesn’t happen on as grand a scale as we’ve envisioned? THAT is our greatest fear. Yes, we all knew that in these times all our fears would come up so we made sure to clear as much as we could! Fear of lack – cleared! Fear around commitment – cleared! Fear around the Shift and all it might be bring? – cleared and prepared and ready to do whatever we’ve got to do! But what we may not have prepared for is the fact that three months out from the ‘due date’ we are waking up to what on the mainstream television? Really crap reality shows and news media that are all reading off the same script. More and more people are switching off from that, and thank goodness we have loads of alternative, amazing, conscious news sources to choose from now but I don’t want to apologise for saying it’s time for more!
We didn’t mind gradually chipping away at this thing. Working on our inner growth, being of service however we felt called to do. We didn’t mind when others didn’t understand us or ignored us or ridiculed us. There was a light at the end of the tunnel, right? Right?
Yes life is one constant evolution. Yes change takes time. However, why is it then that so many of us, millions in fact, all have this burning knowing within us that we are here to witness and take part in MAJOR change. Not just your regular turn of the decade change, but major quantum leap total change and social reform for this planet and humanity. Change for the better.
I think most awakened people have a very philosophical view of life. Que sera sera what will be will be. This is a great attitude to have, although we also need to remember that we are all powerful co-creators and what will be will be whatever we want it to be. So what do we want it to be? Your vision right? You can bet that the old, let’s call them the powers that WERE, are not sitting around with a que sera sera attitude. They know the power potential of these times. They know the significance of the due date. They know we’re at a turning point, a fork in the road. And you can bet their policy is not: what will be will be. You can bet that they are pulling every trick and ritual out of the book right now to make sure that what will be is what they want it to be. Even though what they want isn’t good for the earth or good for 99% of people here. Even though what they want is not sustainable, neither physically nor energetically, moving as we are into a higher frequency. We have everything on our side. The whole Universe is supporting us. The sun is supporting us, as challenging as the solar flares and eruptions may be emotionally and physically and on our power grids, it is helping us shift from artificial sources of power to authentic sources of power on every level. The galactic alignments are supporting us. The higher energies we are moving into are supporting us. We couldn’t fail now if we tried, well let’s not test that, but you know what I mean.
I’m seeing this vision of millions of humanity trying to push a giant barrel over an obstacle. We get into a rhythm of push, push, and then it rolls back a little. So again, push, push and again it rolls back. We are at the point of wanting to give up and admit defeat. Imagine yourself in that vision. You know what it’s going to take don’t you? Momentum. The momentum of push, back, push, back, push, back, push, push, push, back and then big push woooshka, over the obstacle it goes. Even though we’ve broken out in a sweat for hours (lifetimes) trying to get this thing over, we’re in a bit of stunned shock once it’s actually happened! Next thing you know the barrel is rolling down the hill at accelerated speed and everyone is running after it shouting woah, not so fast!!! Haha, won’t that be funny. Change will finally come, and it will come in such a massive, accelerated way that we’ll all be saying oh my gosh, this is all happening rather fast isn’t it! Something tells me we won’t be complaining though.
There has been a huge sadness and grief feeling in the air lately. It's being felt by some as a 'what's the point' energy, a boredom with what you're doing, and a sense of disillusionment. We are living through the end of a 26000 year cycle and we are at the dawn of a new cycle. We are not educated about this in our schools. We are not taught what to expect by our media. We are not prepared for the emotional impact by our families or communities (for the most part).
We are all collectively experiencing a myriad of emotions born out of both the ending of what has been, and the step forward into the unknown. It can feel overwhelming, confusing, challenging and frustrating. We have never experienced this before, in this same way, with this amount of people on the planet. No-one knows exactly how it will play out, but we all know what we are feeling on a daily basis, and it is by sharing our feelings and experiences that we can help and support each other through these times, one day at a time.
Memories are also coming up of a recent 'end of cycle' period - Atlantis - (not a 26 000 year end of cycle, that was an end of 5125 year cycle) where things did not go as we'd hoped. So our memories associate cycle endings with failure, disappointment, grief and destruction. It does not have to be this way this time, and I believe it won’t be this way this time. I feel we have made a collective decision to choose unity, peace and harmony on this planet this time. This is what the majority want. But it is a big job getting those old memories out of the way!! They can feel suffocating! Ask for the old memories from Atlantis that are no longer serving you to be released now. Let’s co-create Heaven on Earth already!
Now is the time to remember you are a powerful creator. Now is the time to remember our laws of attraction and manifestation. Now is the time to remember what you have always known somewhere deep inside you about who you are, why you are here and what you came here to help create. Empty your mind of all the conflicting messages you’ve received about these times and fill your heart with what you know to be true. What is your vision for our Earth? Fill your heart with that vision then follow your heart. That is all.
