We had such high hopes for the Shift—the new age dawning in 2012 and continuing in 2013. And in fact, much of these did come true—these were heady years of releasing old patterns for most of us, especially old thought patterns contained in the collective soul.
In 2014, we’ll see more of this transition or Shift and much of it is very, very difficult for humankind, the animal and plant kingdom, and the earth itself—there is great chaos, disaster and suffering continuing this year. This what happens when seven billion souls all attempt to wake up at the same time—many of us are grumpy at begin shaken from the old dream, and many are not able to withstand the Shift at all.
Yet overall, 2014 is a gentler year. It’s as if we’ve actually evolved a little bit. We understand where we need to go, and even if we’re not there yet, at least we’re pointing in the right direction. We don’t live in fear the same way we used to.
In 2014, this much is true: the more you let go of the old paradigm, the more the new paradigm begins to show up in your life. 11 signs to watch for:
1. Time shifts. You’ll notice that time isn’t running on the same schedule as it used to; you’ll experiences great passages of “no time” or being unable remember time that has passed. Nowness becomes real.
2. Spiritual awakening. The great leap forward continues for millions. Many of you will begin to experience great passages of true awakening. This is world wide.
3. A new healing emerges. The health insurance fiasco is a sign that we are moving from the fear and scarcity based systems of health, to a new way. Energy healing will become not just more mainstream, but more effective. The old models of illness are beginning to be released, even though we are still in early stages.
4. Food as medicine. The GMO battle is one of the most significant of our time. We begin to understand and fight for the value of food as medicine and our source of health.
5. The ocean calls for help. The oceans, rivers and other bodies of water continues to use their force in weather, disaster, and more to signal their great need for help.
6. The refugee becomes a symbol of our Oneness. What happens to the least of one, happens to all.
7. Transportation changes. Cars and oil dependency won’t be the same in five years.
8. Marijuana becomes legal in more states. This creates shifts that we won’t understand for another decade.
9. Human rights continue to be supported on all levels: civil, race, gender, age.
10. Child and teen leaders. The new generation speaks out as a force; watch for key martyrs and leaders such as Malala. The younger generations are communicating with each other, and waiting for their time to lead.
11. The wise elderly. Boomers begin to have enlightenment left and right. Their ability to release and wake up from old paradigms is astounding. Many will be heroic for coming generations; this may also happen in your own family.
We sink into the deep and restful quiet that is winter.
This night — the Winter Solstice on December 20 — is the longest night of the year in the western hemisphere; it is the night in which we stay awake, waiting for the light to come.
I invite you to sit with a journal and contemplate what you have learned as you put 2013 to bed—a very big year, a year of enlightenment, a year of consciousness, a year of spiritual awakening for many.
I also invite you to begin to create a new reality for 2014; to use this still, quiet, deepening time, to begin to imagine a new way for you to be in this world.
On Solstice, it is good to be outside, in nature, and to recognize yourself for both your human and divine self; animal and etheric.
I invite you to journey within on this day, in the stillness of the night, as you create intention for the new year.
If you are able... if you are in an area that is fresh dusted with snow, or even if you are in any area that is still and quiet and private... head there today, tomorrow, as soon as you can.
The trees hold great healing for us all. They are not nomadic, but instead sentient beings that Stay In Place for perhaps hundreds of years, watching and waiting, and knowing all that is.
To go into the trees, snow or no snow, is to become a part of that magnificent stillness and energy that is God/One/All/Divine.
To go there is to be blessed; it is a way of opening and preparing for Solstice, the longest night, soon to come.
