Some times we look at things the same way, for so long, we forget that they can be looked at in a new way.
Yesterday my daughter took the small rise tinted Buddha from the table by me bed, and moved it to a new location.
The new view: light filled, illuminated, Divine, perfect, glorious, is here.
Move something today: an object, or perhaps even an old idea.
Look at it in a new light.
Many of you were up in the wee hours (depending upon where you live) in meditation or prayer, being a part of the global energy that is the Solstice.
We'll be celebrating more today, on my radio show at 11 am PST, if you'd like to call in or comment. http://www.sarawiseman.com/radiofree-podcasts.html
The point of this day, December 21, 2012 is not about apocalypse, or world ending. These things might have happened; but during this glorious turning of darkness to light, they did not.
We awoke or were present in a beautiful, gorgeous, rich experience of energy that was not just where you live, but celebrated all of the world, as people everywhere, celebrated the Light.
The Light we are in awe of is not just the physical light of dawn. It is collective Light, as we join together in ways and numbers that our planet has not seen before. Tens of thousands of souls, millions of souls? We don't know who's involved, but there are many more than in the past centuries; many more souls adding to collective energy of Light and Love.
It is also an internal shift, as you personally let go of all that you did not want to keep, as you moved from yuga or epoch of Kali or darkness and into era of Satya or Age of Truth.
These shifts: the internal, the communal. OUTSIDE OF ALL LAWS, RULES, RELIGIONS, are a new way of human beings stepping forward to join together, for Peace, for Love.
This is a first, folks. No teacher, no master, no guru. Just all of us claiming the Light as our OWN, and as the right and core of each other.
When we look from this Divine/One/All view, we are able to change the world, much faster than working in old methods of laws, rules, punishments, etc.
Thank you, for your part in Solstice so far. Continue holding the energy for yourself and for each other.
Nature has an extraordinary way of celebrating winter. If you live in the Pacific Northwest as I do, the spicy scent of cedar, pine, fir wafts in the air around you. A simple walk outside becomes a reverie of verdant green.
We bring this green in: Christmas trees, wreaths, swags, to remind us that life continues even in these dark months of winter. We light the green with twinkling lights upon the boughs, to remind us of the light that awaits us… not now, not yet.
We hold the lights in our hearts like patience and peace, waiting upon its return.
These are the final days of the Shift. The end of the world as we know it. You were either conscious before, or you became conscious during the rough swirling chaos of the last few years, or you are becoming so even now. Open your heart, and let it all in.
In the last few years, most of us have experienced or seen:
• Financial ruin
• Natural disaster
• Health crisis
• Relationship issues
• Relocations and moving
• Passing of loved ones
In all this time, the Universe has been clearing us, clearing us of what we don’t need any more:
• Attachment to the idea of security
• Attachment to the idea of success
• Attachment to the idea of safety
It’s okay. Let it all go. We’re in the Homestretch of Shift 2012, and as a SOUL, you’re either learning or have learned that none of those things matter. You can’t grasp or hold on to anything, anymore.
It just doesn’t work that way now. The Universe is spinning and things are no longer as they were.
It’s okay. What remains is absolute: Love, Connection, Surrender, Peace. Accepting the all of it, this experience of Divine being in each body, learning soul lessons as best we can, opening to everything: the good, the bad, the ALL of it.
If you haven’t been shaken up, you will be.
If you’ve already sbeen shaken there may be more to come.
If you’ve being shaken right now, you are not alone.
Tis the season for deep rest and awaiting the light.
It has been a long and difficult year for many of us. At the very most, you have experienced disaster, tragedy, grief and fear. At the very least, you have had a year of opening and expanding, and moving from old self into a new understanding of self.
We are literally shedding our old skins and stepping into new ways of being, individually and collectively, as the Age of Aquarius, the Age of Enlightenment, becomes apparent in our lives.
As the Shift continues to open our hearts and our consciousness, there is no place for mass consumerism, mass consumption. There’s no place for negative relationships, or ways of being that make you unhappy, miserable or stressed. There is absolutely no place for violence, hatred, intolerance or shame.
On this day of Solstice, some things to consider:
• Let go of everything that doesn’t serve you.
• Let go of everything that is not authentic or holds true meaning for you.
• Let go of anything that does not reflect you as Soul, Divine being.
You are allowed to do this. In fact, you are invited in a way that many of you many never again experience in your lifetime.
In fact, during this Age of Enlightenment, you are not just invited, but you are requested by the Universe to step into the consciousness of who you truly are as Soul.
Today, on winter Solstice, December 21, 2012, I invite you to:
• Mediate, pray and contemplate.
• Rest, deeply.
• Light candles, or do another ritual, that symbolizes the shift of the old you, into the new Self emerging.
• Gather with kindred beings, souls in conscious reflection of this day and this time.
It is the Solstice, it is the Shift. It is a day to understand that this is your life. You are not required to waste it on things that you are no longer aligned with. Let go of what is past. Step into the light of who you really are. Step into the light of what we truly can be as individuals, as community, as collective soul, as One.
