“Flower” byVictoria Blumberg www.sunflowersummer.com/
New doors are opening, portals of entry into a new Field of consciousness, can you feel it, especially in your heart? If it is true as some astronomical astrologers believe that we have indeed made the literal crossing in galactic space/time on December 21 2010 that the Mayan predicted would happen in December of 2012, then we have in fact entered this new Field of awareness that has been called the end of time. What does that mean, and more importantly, how does it feel?
The end of time simply means past and future no longer hold as much sway over our daily lives, that the experiential NOW is where creation is taking place. I know this can be hard to believe as it can’t really be proven or seen in this visible world. Yet somehow we all get that reality is no longer what we thought it was, even three months ago, before this shift.If you will choose not to dredge up the old grievances/histories of yore, or waste time fantasizing about the future from a place of escapism, but rather set your intentions, turn them over to the Universe, and then just go about your day and watch the magic unfold, all good things will come to you, now more than ever, in the experiential NOW.This is the new possibility, this is where we are being pushed to inhabit.
Does that sound like goobledegoop? I am having a hard time describing the power of the shift I am experiencing so please bear with me. When I write these astrological posts, I am primarily writing out of my own experience. Being a sidereal Pisces (sign of dreamers/poets/musicians/nappers) some of my information comes from the dreamtime. If you pay attention to your dreams, you can over time discern if a dream is coming to you for your understanding of self, as information for a friend, from poor digestion, or is of a more visionary nature.
I had the latter kind of dream on January 25 this year. It was the day Saturn (decisions/authority)went retrograde, quite often a time when things come to a screeching, dramatic halt, like last year coinciding with the Haitian earthquake, or this year, it was the day the Egyptian revolution began. In my dream, everyone was in some degree of chaos, not knowing where they were going, what to pack, where to go..symbolizing the uncertainty of these times. Suddenly the 13th constellation Ophiuchus (whose entrance onto the national stage in January caused all the hoopla awakening people to learn about their sidereal signs) appeared in a stunningly handsome male body, adorned in jewels and painted with serpent (transformation/shedding) tattoos. He asks me if I am ready to teach on behalf of the stars. I say yes, knowing somehow I have been prepared for this. The next scene is a precarious passage over a high glass bridge that has to be made, but as I commit to crossing, a dear friend reaches out his hand and helps me to the other side.
This dream created a literal heart-opening of life-changing proportions in me. The very next day, and in the ensuing weeks I feel it is easier now to live in a fluid, yet stable joyful place, and whatever happened that night keeps teaching me how to stay present. I could say all my hard work finally paid off, yet this shift happened in an instant, with a dream. I have a sense many people are having these kinds of out of the blue shifts, internal awakenings,and pondering the miraculous nature of how change comes unannounced, yet long prayed for. I think that is the definition of Grace.
Since 2007, the galactic/Earth shifts that we have weathered are truly revolutionary. At the end of 2007 a new Jupiter/Pluto era began, always a time when old power structures fall apart, yet fight to stay in power…witness what happened with the global economic meltdown and the ensuing unwise decisions made to keep the high rollers in power. Next we had the Jupiter/Neptune conjunctions in 2009 which awakened a longing for greater equality everywhere yet to some extent remained a dream not yet able to come down to Earth.I think of Iran’s Green Revolution that flowered, was squashed, still simmers and one day soon will win out. 2009 also brought about a great awakening internally for many people, as Neptune works with us through our dreams and our inner worlds. Then 2010!! Eruption as Jupiter/Uranus came together, always the historical cycle of major upheavels and radical shifts. We especially saw this manifest in the political arena with last year’s US elections.
Now as Jupiter parts company with the catalyzing, disruptive, hopeful energies of Uranus, the new forms born out of that time will begin to take hold in our personal and collective lives. This innovation and recognition by the People of the power they really have is now nested in this emerging Field of awareness and possibility.
I wrote these lines in 2008 as part of contemplating the election cycle and the possibility that we could be facing 32 years of Bush/Clinton dynasties. I am an Obama supporter.
Dynasties are over
Dynasties are dead.
Seal the portals of fear,
Open the gates of love.
With the fall of the family of billionaires that have ruled Egypt, toppled by the youth, the poor, those yearning simply to work and make a decent living, I think 2011 is starting off to a good start.
These energies are o*p*e*n*i*n*g us, especially in the heart chakra, and that shivering of love is reaming out our bodies preparing us for greater levels of living in joy. Sounds nice, but this can be a strange and even uncomfortable process. For some of you, it may feel like you are taking down your guard. Others of a more spiritual bent might be experiencing the further thinning of the veils between the dimensions. Some of you might feel untethered where you simple can’t grasp what’s going on or have a very odd feeling of not having the core identity you used to inhabit. You know you are the same person, yet you are not that same person. Weird. Some might be enjoying a new lightening of all levels, especially in the physical body. These are just a few possibilities. Edie Bennett, a giver of deeksha or oneness blessing (www.onenessjacksonhole.com) speaks about how all the old forms are literally dissolving…both personal identities and collective structures. It’s as if we are going from a world where all has been like a structured ordered golf course and we are NOW returning to a sensual garden of Eden of rainbowed wildflowers….a big part of this new field is a return to healthy sensuality/sexuality where our human passions are channeled in loving joyful ways. Some like the sound of that, while others cringe in fear. How to live with such chaos of wild beauty all around with no set agenda.
Here is a remarkable YouTube clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zErpOnYZZH0 in which Benjamin Zander, conductor of the Boston Philharmonic is addressing the Davos economic summit.**Always a good sign when artists are asked to address economists** In it, he speaks about the field of possibility. It strikes me he is intuiting this new Field coming forth, more alive, here, with each passing day on Earth.
May you allow this emerging Field itself to shape and shape-shift you to new levels of Joy and possibility.
