It’s been a while since my last post and a good place to restart my blog is by examining how far we’ve come since a few short years ago, and indeed even how far we’ve come since the December 21, 2012 Solstice just six months ago. (I’ve been busy with one daughter graduating from high school, another daughter flying to Germany for a few weeks, as well as getting some necessary home repairs done, amongst other things.) The Great Shift in Consciousness is indeed upon us. The following are just a few top ideas that show our progress regarding our understanding of the Great Shift.

1. Your transformation is not going to be automatic, but requires your individual, active and diligent participation.

I remember emailing a draft of my eBook Activating 2012: A Practical Guide to an acquaintance who was a life coach and active in the spiritual community and receiving not the best feedback from her. In fact I sensed she was somewhat upset with what I claimed in my manuscript. She had taken issue with my assertion that the Great Shift that we’ve been all waiting for would not be automatic but would require our individual work and effort. Real work and real effort, I emphasized. “But what about the photons that are bombarding us from Galactic Center that will transform our DNA?” she insisted.

Well, of course there was greater Light (consciousness, insight, etc.) coming from “the heavens” that would transform our inner essence but we had to tap into that consciousness through meditation and then to act on (to test) that consciousness by seeing what happened (the results) after that consciousness was actually applied. Real learning and real understanding is realized only after we apply our knowledge (i.e. test the theories).

I would propose that today, few people believe that the process of individual or societal transformation is automatic but that it requires diligent and right effort on the part of individuals (some of which turns into “grass-root” efforts). Furthermore, no one will be able to gloss over fulfilling their own individual contribution toward this Great Shift. (This was not a popular position to hold a few years ago, but it’s increasingly accepted these days…)

2. The Galactic Federation is not coming to save us. No one is coming to save us. We will save ourselves by following through with our inner guidance as opposed to just going along with the crowd, the status quo.

I don’t think very many people believe anymore that our space brothers and sisters will come to our rescue. In fact, I would think that people are more open to the idea that we are doing a huge service for our space brothers and sisters, by attempting to work out the most difficult problems of the Universe through our work here on this planet.

Well, I do hear some people still believe that of course they won’t do it FOR US, but that doesn’t mean that they can’t work TOGETHER with us. But they’re just fooling themselves, because our guides are ALREADY working together with us (and have been for ages), by already guiding us. We just need to listen and follow through with the guidance, and to see what happens as a result of our efforts.

I remember receiving emails from more than a few disappointed souls, who actually believed that some savior or saviors (in the form of a Messiah, or the Galactic Federation) would come to this planet to finally make things right here. (When in reality, what will make things right is you as an individual listening within and following through with your inner guidance.) Yes, we’ve certainly come a long ways with regard to these beliefs.

So when do I think they will finally come?  My understanding (which came to me after some eye-opening personal experiences that I share in my book, What Everyone Believed: A Memoir of Intuition and Awakening) is that they will come when we no longer need them to. Which means there’s no good reason to wait for anything or anyone anymore. It’s high time to connect to your inner being, your higher self, and to follow through with your inner guidance.

3. We are making real progress; the tides are shifting. The “north pole” of the planet is shifting toward greater awareness and consciousness (greater “Light”) and we have passed the “tipping point” of December 21, 2012. “All” we have to do now is to act on our inner guidance and we will succeed.

I have communicated in the past that the Great Shift will happen (relatively) very fast for us because there’s so much useful information and tips available to us at the press of a button, i.e. via the Internet (which was not true in the past).

For example, in May of this year Portland, Oregon voters rejected fluoridating their water, despite a 3-to-1 advantage in money spent by the pro-fluoride groups.This was the fourth time Portland residents were asked to vote on this issue since the 1950s.

Individual and grass-roots efforts will win because when properly informed and aware, the vast majority of the public will do the right thing. Awareness is also spreading, even in the mainstream news, about the truth of GMO foods and the problems associated with the consumption of our highly-hybridized wheat. CBS recently aired an interview with Dr. William Davis, MD, a cardiologist who called modern wheat a “perfect, chronic poison.” (And of course I’m much more apt to see things this way after what I personally experienced experimenting with avoiding wheat for a couple of years now….)

So, where are you being led? What issues are you being guided to work on? I can assure you this: The faster you connect with that inner guidance and muster up the courage to follow through, the faster your world will transform and the faster the outer world will transform. Things are going in the right direction, but the actual speed of change, how fast your life transforms for the positive, is totally up to you. I don’t know about you, but to me this is most obvious.

I listened to a few people (astrologers, channelers, bloggers) make predictions for 2013 and I’m sharing in this blog post my “take” on 2013 predictions and what I feel are the most important themes to consider regarding this year.

Basically, what I’ve seen is that there aren’t a whole lot of wonderful, lovey-dovey, fluffy predictions for this year. One person (Mike Adams of NaturalNews.com) predicted a number of unpleasant events happening in the U.S. over the next three years, that have to do with our rights being eroded here. Another person, a channeler, is spreading the message that it will take about “two and a half generations to fully integrate the New Paradigm.” (How does she know? Well, actually she doesn’t know for sure; she’s just guessing.)

From what I understand of this time period (meaning, after December 21, 2012), we are more oriented towards the Light than not right now. In my eBook, Activating 2012: A Practical Guide I explain that the astronomy shows that the planet’s “GPS” is now oriented towards galactic light, which is good news. Of course this does not mean that life on this planet will now all of a sudden become hunky-dory, but that the guidance system of this planet is now oriented towards the Light (whereas before, it was actually oriented away from the light, toward the dark).

I understand that there will be many challenging events still to come on this planet, but the good news is that these events are actually helping to activate positive change; they are helping to awaken the people, even if sometimes it seems like one individual at a time. For example, my awakening process did not happen because I had heard about the wonderful “New Age” that was upon us. Rather, it kicked in because of some painful, confusing events that happened in my life over 10 years ago, that I couldn’t explain with the framework I had at the time. The other good news is, the scales are finally tipped in favor of the light. (Whereas before, if you look at the collective experience, one could say that the “dark” has had the “upper hand,” has been “winning” for quite a long time.)

All this is good news, but what does this mean for the individual? It means that now, more than ever, we need to follow our inner guidance system, the “internal compass” that’s oriented toward the light–which is our higher self. The individual must follow his or her own inner guidance to fulfill his or her potential.

This is indeed the message of a couple of the astrologers I have listened to earlier this month: In 2013 it is extremely important that we seek the light and have our actions be guided by the light. If you seek the light (by “light” I mean your higher self, your soul, your higher consciousness, higher awareness, greater connection with Source and truth) and muster up the courage to align your life with that light, you will be supported by the Universe, you will receive guidance when you need it, you will get clearer and it will get easier for you. It will be easier to fulfill your potential. In other words, those who seek the higher path will receive more support from the Universe than those who just go along with the status quo or societal pressure.

The following is an example of a very simple but empowering change one can make–thanks to a former client of mine that I ran into at Trader Joe’s just yesterday. Mitchell is a local businessman, about 60 years old, who has completely changed how he eats: no more gluten, the dairy is gone, no processed junk, and no hormone beef. He’s been juicing vegetables and eating “natural” and in a few months, he lost 35 pounds. His goal is to get off all medication, including blood pressure medication. He’s off of cholesterol medication, as his cholesterol went down enough, and he’s been testing himself to see what’s responsible for reducing his cholesterol. (He’s not just blindly following doctor’s orders, he’s experimenting and testing himself, he said.)

What motivated him to change his habits is personal pain (the ultimate motivator). He had realized that he and his friends who are his age all had the same complaints: an extended belly, an extra 30 to 40 pounds or more, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, gout and other unpleasant symptoms and he decided to “cross that bridge” and do something about it. He’s not particularly “spiritual” or a light-worker, but this is how we create a new world, by beginning to change the things we can change; we begin where we are. When we do this we become more empowered, and we are closer to reaching our potential.

If you are a light-worker, if you consider yourself more aware than the average person, the following message is for you: one of the astrologers I listened to advises that we take our higher work seriously this year. 2013 is the year of great potential, it’s the year to take your higher purpose seriously–by setting your goals for this year by the end of January and then making agreements with yourself and others that will help you manifest your goals. (If you don’t know how to make your goals happen, ask the Universe for guidance on the how-to and you will receive the right guidance so that you achieve the results and receive the rewards.)

When we as individuals follow our inner guidance, eventually we will have greater light manifest in the larger world. When you are fully doing your higher purpose, you won’t worry so much about what’s going on in the outer collective. (You will have the inner understanding that what’s happening in the world is for the greatest growth and learning and transformation of all.)

So yes, it will take some time to transform every corner of this planet, but when you’re on your path fully and the amazing synchronicities and favorable events begin to occur, it will become obvious to you that you have crossed over the threshold into the age of light–and it will become that much easier to help others around you as well.

I have been following nutritionist JJ Virgin for a few years now and ordered her latest book The Virgin Diet even before it was released (I got around to reading it this week). While the main “hook” for the book is “lose 7 pounds in 7 days by dropping 7 foods” (foods that are often touted by the mainstream media and even doctors as “health foods,” by the way), the book starts the reader on a (relatively easy) health and healing journey that can benefit the majority of the population in many ways. Let me explain.

Although I always considered myself a healthy person (I have avoided all prescription and over-the-counter pharmacy-no-rx.net medications, except for occasions such as when I got my wisdom teeth pulled), about 3 or 4 years ago (when I was in my late 40s) for the first time in my life I began to wake up with stiffness in my back. No, this isn’t just about age, I said to myself, and promised to look for a solution. Not long afterwards is when I first heard about JJ Virgin and enrolled in one of her online classes. I followed the diet recommendations she prescribed, and about a week later, the morning stiffness was gone!

So what are the 7 foods that she recommends you eliminate completely (100%) for a 3 week period?  Dairy, Gluten, Soy, Eggs, Peanuts, Corn and Sugar and Artificial Sweeteners. Any food that has any of these ingredients in any form are pulled from your diet, which means most processed foods are out the window. (You will later reintroduce some of these foods in a controlled manner, to see how your body reacts to them. Some foods, for example artificial sweeteners, are never recommended.)

Over 50% of the population has food challenges (food intolerances or sensitivities) to at least one of these foods. The foods listed above are known to be inflammatory, which means they cause disease as well as weight gain and aging. So what do you eat? Clean protein such as free-range chicken (in small amounts), healthy fats such as extra virgin olive oil and nuts, high fiber gluten free grains, fruits and lots of vegetables. (She has tips for vegetarians and vegans as well.)

In 3 weeks of following the JJ Virgin plan, it is highly likely you will lose 10 pounds and look and feel about 10 years younger. (Which will be very helpful in the new year as many of us “conscious folk” would like to have the energy and stamina to create a lot of wonderful things in the world…)

What I like about JJ’s approach is that it’s intuitive and allows for occasional treats. Once you reach maintenance stage, you can indulge in pizza (gluten, dairy) if that’s what you absolutely have to have, you’re allowed an indulgence for one meal a week. (One meal out of 21 meals a week is 5%, so 95% of the time you’re eating healthy. I like 95%. It feels industrious and energetic, yet doable.) Moreover, just knowing that you can have your favorite food occasionally will help you stick to your health plan. And as your healing journey continues over the weeks and months you will find that you might not enjoy that piece of pizza as much as you used too…

Three or four years later I am still free of my morning back stiffness, except when I have some wheat products for a few days in a row (like for example during the holidays)! JJ Virgin shares in her book that when she has gluten occasionally (such as a roll with her dinner), the next morning her fingers swell up and feel stiff.

I plan to live my life healthy and completely prescription-free and rather than supporting the international “health cartel” I choose to spend my money on clean, organic food grown locally as much as possible. In fact, while I was at my local farmer’s market in Saratoga, CA yesterday I overheard a middle-aged couple telling a farmer that they have switched almost all of their weekly grocery budget over to farmers markets. Supporting your local small farmers will help the economy of your community, and it will also help employ more people while at the same time raising the quality of life for the Whole.

Now that we have surpassed the December 21, 2012 date the projects and journeys we embark upon will be easier to manifest, if they are beneficial to the Whole. As Ron Van Dyke recently said, we light-workers have a lot of “boots on the ground” work to do. (While it is about coming from Creation mode, coming from the “Heart,” once you feel inspired you go off and actually work on the things you feel inspired to work on!)

To help with that journey, I would recommend reading The Virgin Diet cover to cover, and then implementing the plan in the book. The book contains the “how-to” details (details that cannot be adequately covered in an article) that are very helpful for the speedy success of your healing journey.

I dropped off my teenagers at the San Francisco airport the other day. They are visiting their Dad (who is working in Germany for the next year) and their Oma and Opa for the Christmas holidays. After we checked their luggage and they got into the security line, we said goodbye and I left. The security line was as far as far as I could physically go, and they were big girls now, one would turn 15 at the end of March and the other 18 next month.

Five minutes from my house I got a phone call from the younger one, telling me that their flight was delayed by over two hours, which meant that they would not make their connecting flight from L.A. to Munich. I instructed her to go talk to an airline representative right away, to let them know that they would miss their flight. I assured her that the airline would get them to Munich; there were other flights flying out to L.A. all the time.

A few minutes later she let me know that she was talking with customer service. Some time later she called to let me know that they were told they could possibly get on a direct flight to Munich, if they got to the right gate fast (and it might already be too late), but that they were already given wrong directions twice, and what should they do? I said to go for it, get the right directions and get over to the right gate–fast. And most likely, the right gate was in the International terminal at the beginning of the airport.

“Is that all you have to say?” she asked in an annoyed tone (as if I had said something wrong).

“Congratulations on negotiating the problem well,” I said, but I’m not sure how much of that she heard, as she had hung up on me at that point. And then neither one answered any further texts or calls from me. How was I supposed to know what flight they were or were not getting on? I had to call the airline to find out that indeed, both of them were going to be on the direct flight to Munich. I could then let their Dad know the flight number and when to expect them.

In the end, they got to Munich five minutes before their original flight, even though they had been given “wrong directions” that made them “go through security four times.” The older one was so frustrated with the whole experience she was about to cry.

I’m not writing this blog post to share the crazy whims of teenagers (although that can be amusing at times), but because I was “urged from within” to share it, because it’s a good example of what is happening in the larger world at this time. (And if you re-read this blog post, you’ll get the deeper message within it, which has to do with the great shift in consciousness and the “tipping point” that occurred yesterday, December 21, 2012.)

I texted the following message to my teenage daughters: “If a problem occurs, it means there must be a solution already available, and all you have to do is CALMLY look for the solution.”

The message to light-workers and other adults is this: If a problem occurs, it means your higher self had planned it and also that your higher self has the answers–if you connect within and search for the answers.

Another relevant and important idea I wish to share here has to do with a blog post I had written a few weeks ago that urged the importance of coming from Creation mode rather than survival mode, more and more. The important concept to grasp here (that will bring the “New World” into being) is this: If you are feeling any sort of doubt or panic around some issue or some thing, that’s a clue that you are NOT coming from Creation. So get yourself back into creation mode!

Finally, I want to share a brilliant message from Geoffrey Hoppe’s latest “Shaumbra Monthly” newsletter.

“When you wake up on December 22 and realize that it’s just another day on planet Earth, take a deep breath instead of a deep sigh. Go inside yourself for a moment. Remember that you brought all of these energies of personal change into your life, and your life is in the process of making a huge shift into embodied, conscious spirit. Take a look at how far you’ve come these past 10 – 20 years, then thank yourself for making it (mostly) intact to the marker date of December 22. Put aside what’s going on in the outer world, and then get ready for a series of quantum transformations that begin to unfold in your life. You see, it never was about what was going to happen on December 21. It’s always been about what was going to happen AFTER this historic marker.”

Now that the famous December 21, 2012 solstice is behind us, we can let go of the “end of the world” distractions and get to work on the real things that matter, that need to be done, that require changing your life from the inside out.

To receive good directions for the “inner work” we’re being called to do, please click the following link and consider reading the two books I’ve written. The memoir (hardcover) is an account of my reconnecting experience, and the eBook contains how-to instructions, as well as other helpful information.

Connecting with your Higher Self and Living From Creation

Are strange events happening in your life that you can’t quite explain? Can they be somehow related to the 2012 shift that many are talking about? My understanding is that the “tipping point” of this shift in consciousness is to occur on December 21, 2012 (according to the astronomy, anyway), even though all of us have been in different stages of the awakening process for a good number of years now.

The way I see it, there’s a purpose to these strange events. I believe that having strange things happen in your life that you cannot quite explain opens you up to searching for answers and to being more open to considering alternative viewpoints–viewpoints that are alternative to the mainstream doctrines that have been pushed on us by the media, government, religion, industry and society.

For example, I had something strange happen in my life back in 1988 that I still to this day cannot explain. I spoke to barely a handful of people about it, engineers and scientists mainly, just to make sure there was no gaping hole in my scientific understanding.

I didn’t get any definitive answers, but the strange happening had an impact on my life, in that it made me more open to searching for answers outside of conventional or known explanations. I wrote about what happened in my memoir, What Everyone Believed: A memoir of intuition and awakening, but will briefly describe it below.

In 1988 I was working in Munich, Germany in the Experimental Physics Department at the Ludwig Maximilian University. I had been hired as a materials engineer and my job was to work with a physics professor and his graduate students, analyzing ceramic superconductors using various materials analysis techniques.

My vacation that year consisted of a car trip to Turkey with my boyfriend (who later became my husband) and my sister, who was visiting from New York. At one of Turkey’s tourist attractions (that looked like the limestone terraces in Yellowstone National Park), something strange happened. We had just parked my boyfriend’s VW Bug in the parking lot and were walking to see the terraces when I realized I had forgotten my camera. I asked my boyfriend and my sister to go along without me, that I would catch up with them after I got my camera.

I got to the car, leaned my left arm over the passenger side headrest (the front passenger side is where I normally sat), and reached for the camera that was on the back seat. As I was reaching for the camera, the two stainless steel rods that attached the headrest to the passenger seat had bent back in parallel motion. In my “inner hearing” I heard them “click into place” at an angle of about 45 degrees from vertical.

What the hell? That wasn’t supposed to happen! I tried to return the headrest to its original position (vertical) but it wouldn’t bend. After trying to bend it back into place for a minute or two I ran over to tell my boyfriend that something strange had happened to his car, and the three of us rushed back to look.

I had half expected the headrest to be back in its original position, perhaps one chance in a million I had somehow imagined this event, but nooooo, it was still bent. (I didn’t do drugs, nothing like this had ever happened to me or anyone else before–that I knew about, anyway.) I was really puzzled.

My boyfriend, six foot three and athletic, tried to bend the rods back into place but no matter what he did, he couldn’t make them budge. And boy was he upset with me! We took it to an auto shop to have it fixed, the three of us standing around waiting for it at the shop like strangers at a train station. The people at the auto shop were able to bend it back, and the headrest was as good as new for the rest of the time my boyfriend owned the car.

A couple of days later, still in Turkey, I got sick with some kind of virus or some other strange thing that left me very weak for about 24 hours. Years later, while I was writing my memoir and pondering upon this and other strange events in my life, I “got” that supernatural forces were tampering with the relationships in my life. I wanted to know why…which helped further lead me down my path of discovery.

So…what is happening in your life that cannot be explained using conventional wisdom? If you’re willing, please share your experiences in the comment section of this blog. A couple of other strange things are happening in my life at the moment, that I might share in future postings.

I believe that strange events are happening more frequently on this planet in order to help us question our current reality…which supports us in making the shift in consciousness that will bring about a new age for humanity, one that works for everyone (particularly now that we’re so close to the December 21, 2012 tipping point). It is this shift in consciousness and inner shift that will be the foundation for the positive changes that we make, including the shift from living from survival (struggle, fear, societal and peer pressure) to living from Creation (trusting in the divine, connection with one’s higher self, one’s true self).

As we learn the truth about what 2012 is really about, we will be able to live more and more from creation and joy. And as we learn to align with and follow through with our inner guidance, we will be well on our way to creating a world that’s supported by the heavenly realms.

For some time now, there has been much speculation and misinformation regarding the events that may transpire around 2012 and particularly, around December 2012. Some refer to this time as the Ascension, “The Great Shift in consciousness,” or the beginning of the “Golden Age.” I see it as a shift from humanity having a surface-level understanding of reality to seeing what’s behind it and what supports it. I also see the “2012 shift” as a transition period, a shift from a time when humanity learns through suffering, to one of learning through joy. This sounds like good news, yet many are anxious about the process and about what’s around the corner.

A few years ago Dr. Eric Pearl (known for his work “The Reconnection”) said the following about December 21, 2012, “We will wake up that morning and still be able to see ourselves in a mirror.” I agree. Although it’s true that we’re living through a most challenging time in the evolution of this planet, one reason it’s challenging is that we’re called to let go of things (which of course will cause disruption), even though what we’re supported by the Universe to let go of are the things that don’t work, the habits, practices, structures and systems that are unwanted and unsustainable.

Just the other night I was lying in bed, thinking about a good example of this, and factory farming came to mind. Is factory farming sustainable? Is it a practice that humanity might want to transform, for a number of valid reasons? Absolutely. Might changes at first cause some disruption? No doubt they will.

In fact, 2012 is about raising our consciousness. We are in the process of raising our consciousness about our entire human experience. We are becoming clearer about the big picture “human story,” our history on this planet. We are gaining clarity about who we are, from where we originally came, and what our purpose and intent for being on this planet in a state of “lowered consciousness” was. We are also striving to successfully complete our higher purpose and our soul agreements each with other. All of these will transform our understanding of our journey, and then it will transform our outer reality.

Before we incarnated into this lifetime, our souls reflected on the awesome opportunity and the privilege it would be to be alive on this planet at this time of great transition. We were chosen out of many souls because we possessed the wisdom, the inner skills and the will to create a new world. We were the ones that were most likely to succeed and least likely to run away.

So how do you begin? You begin by connecting and integrating with your higher self, by connecting and listening to that deeper part of you. (One of my blog posts details a meditation designed especially for connecting with your higher self.)

By connecting with your higher self, you will access your higher self’s wisdom (your wisdom from all your incarnations). By following through with your inner guidance over time, you will gain clarity about your journey, you will discover why you chose what you chose (including your challenges and hardships), and you will discover why you’re here on this planet at this particular time (your unique role that only you can fulfill).

Although the reconnecting process is simple, it’s not very easy and it doesn’t get into full swing overnight. Reconnecting consists of 1. learning to distinguish your inner guidance from mental conditionings, societal programmings and others’ expectations (meaning, your higher-level consciousness from your human-level awareness) and 2. learning to trust that connection enough to promptly and consistently follow through and to make the changes you know you need to make.

Following through is of utmost importance. There’s nothing more effective for trusting in your connection with your higher self than experiencing the favorable and sometimes amazing results that come from actually following through.

You can reconnect to your higher self and even learn to trust it in a relatively short time period, but it takes time to put all the pieces of the puzzle of your life together and integrate the wisdom and the understanding. Jesus Christ possessed this higher-level consciousness. Through his higher self he was able to access his wisdom from all time. He understood who he was; he understood his mission and his purpose. He understood how he fit into the Divine Plan. This is why he taught, “The kingdom of heaven is within.” (The “God spark,” the “God aspect” of yourself is within; your higher self is within.)

Each one of us is contributing to the Great Shift of 2012 by “activating” our consciousness. You raise your consciousness by reconnecting to that higher aspect of yourself. By reconnecting to your higher self and gaining a higher-level perspective, you will be able to put the pieces together of your life and make sense of it so you understand your place in the Divine Plan. You will gain knowledge of your place in the universe, your higher purpose, and you will fulfill your purpose by following the step-by-step guidance you receive from your higher self. The key to all this is reconnecting and integrating with your higher self. It’s what 2012 is all about.

Many people are waiting for a shift to occur, one that’s designed by the divine to bring freedom and prosperity to the world. This shift includes, but is not limited to, important changes in the power structures of the planet. People are waiting for an “Event” to happen that will finally prove without a doubt that real changes that benefit all of humanity are underway. (The “Event” here refers to, among other things, the arrests of those members of the powerful elite who have committed great crimes and fraud against humanity and the planet.)

Last week, those who have been receiving updates on these issues through the perspective of an insider connected to the military / Pentagon named Drake were urged to vote at the request of the powerful elite. The voting was to determine whether that small segment of the population was open to the elite’s surrender (which would grant them slightly more leniency, I’m assuming), or whether the preference was to fight them to the very end. (Which the elite claimed would reduce the population of this planet by two-thirds.) From what I understand, the vast majority of voters preferred the elite’s peaceful surrender over war with them. (There’s no surprise there.)

The problem I had with this vote is that only a very small percentage of the population was aware of it. Since the powerful elite own the media, it would have been a cake walk for them to have many millions of people vote. But really, why do you need our vote? Why not just surrender? (You don’t need our permission.)

Anyway, according to Ben Fulford, high-level meetings, allegedly to discuss the terms of the surrender, are scheduled from the 15th to the 20th of June. (June 21 is the date the powerful elite have been given for their surrender, according to various sources.)

For those who aren’t aware of this development, this may sound like incredible news. But for others who have been following alternative / spiritual news for months or even years, things seem as though they’ve been dragging on forever…

Another Month … Nothing New

There are of course many kinds of reactions to these developments. Blossom Goodchild’s latest post titled “Another Month … Another Post … Nothing New” reflects her disappointment at the promises of positive change that were given for so long, particularly these last few weeks where real action by real people in real organizations (not channeled) was promised, and yet we’re halfway through 2012 and there’s very little tangible evidence that anything on this planet is changing for the better. She has also been getting many emails from readers who are similarly disenchanted.

I can understand her frustration because I too have been expecting larger changes in the world by now. (However, I also remember 11 years ago when the Counsel of Light, through a medium named Flo Magdalena, instructed me to write books on how life works here. It took me what seemed like forever to get the momentum going. But even though my first book took me longer than I thought, eventually I did get it completed. So I have faith in the future…)

Another reaction: a blogger named KiboDabi wrote an Open Letter to Drake, Cobra, Fulford, et al, where he rejects the 2 options given us and calls for a vote for “God” instead.

I would agree with KiboDabi if by “God” he meant “Divine Plan” or “Source” (which each individual has access to through their higher self), except that he refers to “God” as a “He” and brings up Galactic ships, Ascended Masters, Jesus, Mohammad, and Buddha. In other words, the same old tired babble of being saved by “higher beings”–which anyone who’s hip to the the Divine Plan and the Ascension / Awakening process knows will not happen. (These “higher beings” are only “higher” because they experienced a shift in their consciousness–which anyone can do, by the way. And now it is your turn.)

Want God?

To me, “God” is the Divine Plan that’s already in place, and has been in place since the beginning of time. It’s a plan that makes a lot of sense–from the perspective of the higher self. However, each one of us must connect to the Divine Plan by connecting to our higher self and mustering up the courage to follow through with our inner guidance. This is how we will get pieces of the Divine Plan and it’s how we play our part.

I have been / am doing my part of the Divine Plan–which is helping people realize the importance of connecting with their higher self and developing the confidence and the courage to follow through with their inner guidance promptly and consistently. It took courage for me to leave the life I previously had so that I could follow my higher purpose, and it still takes daily effort to continue on this path. Anyway, confidence and courage are necessary to complete your part in the Divine Plan.

This doesn’t mean we all have the same role or responsibilities. The grandma down the street may not have a thing to do with the arrests, but her higher purpose may be to share information on GMOs and processed foods with her community for example, even though her family may own the local supermarket chain. What I mean is that it doesn’t matter who you are or how important or unimportant in the grand scheme of things you may think your role in the Divine Plan is, it will require a heck of a lot of courage to finally get things rolling in the right direction. But this is how we will learn who we really are.

I got a response to my recent blog post titled, “The Great Shift In Consciousness and the Light Vs Dark Game” from a person named “Gryphon” at Rumor Mill News. Gryphon wrote:

“As I smoke another cigarette, I need to remember to learn to forget.

As I click on the page that teaches me how to get a flat belly that I really don’t give a shit about I see how to shift my consciousness. There is no great shift in consciousness. It’s just a shift from male to female. And it’s gonna be a great balance for a few thousand years and then females are going to make just as big a mess of things as males have and then males will screw it up for another 13,000 years and then we’ll all be back in the same place again.

So what’s the f@*#-ing point?…

Don’t get too hung up on the process love, it’s happened quite a few times before. “

I’m responding to his concerns here because 1. this simplistic view of the shift is probably held by many, and 2. because I’m not a moderator at RMN, I cannot respond directly to Gryphon in that forum.

When I wrote my eBook Activating 2012: A Practical Guide to Navigating 2012 with Confidence and Clarity, I knew there was something unique about the shift we’re going through this time around. I knew it wasn’t going be yet another 25,820 year cycle. What I mean is that it’s not just the end of another cycle of precessions of the equinoxes; there’s something more to it than that.

What I have known for some time now is that this shift in consciousness is about the integration and wholeness of the individual (and by extension, of the collective). It’s not merely about swinging from one side to the other. It’s definitely not about elevating or preferring one state of being over the other, but about integrating the higher self (creative self) with the personality (“ego”) self.

I cannot actually prove, using astronomy, that this greater level shift is on the horizon. However, in my eBook I show that the astronomy of December 21, 2012 (the alignment of the galactic equator with the Earth’s pole) presages a Great Shift in Consciousness. I show the galactic element that corresponds to the higher self (“God self”), the galactic element that corresponds to the lower self (“ego self”), and why integration of the two aspects this time around makes sense.

However, the Great Shift in consciousness isn’t real to me because of my analysis of the astronomy. The great shift is also not about my becoming aware of the truth about our government, religious institutions, or even about the bankers. For most of us, learning about that kind of stuff falls into the category of book learning.

Rather, I know it’s real because I experienced it personally. I experienced a profound shift in my own awareness after I made the commitment and mustered up the courage to follow through with my inner guidance promptly and consistently, even though I knew that would be the harder path to take (temporarily, I mean…until certain things got resolved).

The Great Shift is about you as an individual changing yourself profoundly. It’s about you discovering through profound and meaningful firsthand experiences why you chose to be here at this time. It’s about making sense of your own life and understanding the role of the people in your life in your transformation. The astronomic alignments are merely signs of the times, and I only became interested in knowing the details of those after my transformative experiences.

Furthermore, as someone with a “left-brain” background (a bachelor’s degree in materials engineering), I see nothing wrong with logic and reasoning. Yet at the same time, I have experienced the great benefits of trusting one’s connection with the Divine, of trusting one’s inner guidance.

The world’s problems didn’t come about because we have overdosed on science, but because real science was corrupted by the profit motive. (One example: recent independent studies indicate that true science is lacking in the medical industry.) There are also those who insist that the right brain is superior to the left brain (just look at where the left brain got us, they say). But don’t let anyone tell you that one side is somehow “better” than the other. In fact, I see science and spirituality merging in the future. (We can call the integration of the two “Divine Logic.”)

So no, there will be no shift from male to female, from left brain to right brain. I am clear that this time it’s about integration and balance. Although this isn’t something I can actually prove will happen, it’s what I stand for, and I’m working on bringing this understanding to the mass consciousness.

As far as flattening your belly is concerned, the great shift in consciousness will totally do that for you. Following through with your inner guidance (a must for experiencing the great shift in consciousness) will get you in touch with your love for yourself as well as help raise your awareness about such things as proper nutrition and about what’s bugging you inside. In conclusion, I have no doubt that a flatter belly will be just one of the many benefits of experiencing the great shift in consciousness.

When you experience the Great Shift in Consciousness firsthand, part of what will shift in you is your perception of the battle between the Dark and the Light. You will begin to perceive it as more of a game. (And it’s at that point that “The Game” finally begins to change.) But before I discuss more of this Light vs. Dark Game, I need to bring up a post I read earlier this week on another blog.

The blogger gave an “energy summary report” for the first 3 months of 2012. Basically, she wrote that because lightworkers are taking positive steps forward, there’s lots more negativity that will be unleashed on them by “Team Dark” in the remaining months of 2012. Because it’s about the final battle for humanity and the Earth, there will be more attacks aimed specifically at lightworkers, she writes. The best way the “Team Dark” derails lightworkers from their purpose is to place obstacles in front of them in the form of negative people in their close environment. She then goes on to give an example of neighbors arguing outside her home into the night one night in the month of March. (I have also been saying that things will get worse before they get better–but for different reasons and using different terminology.)

I understand where she’s coming from because I used to think those things as well. I used to think that some people close to me were being unduly influenced by “Team Dark.” (What a frightening position to take on, and besides, it keeps the battle going!)

But then after dealing with those same people by following through with my higher self’s guidance rather than my normal approach (of avoidance, annoyance, even trying to justify myself using new age logic, whatever…), I had some truly amazing experiences that proved to me beyond a doubt that “Team Dark” is actually catalyzing for me the fastest way to my growth and expansion (i.e. Ascension and shift in consciousness.)

I remember the day this became so clear to me; it was a warm Spring day in 2004. I remember sitting down on the lawn of Morgan Hill High School after my older daughter’s swim meet (she was 9 yrs. old at the time) and crying. My capricious daughter and her equally unpredictable Dad had already left the meet, people were packing up and leaving the grounds and all I could do was just sit there and cry.

I will not share the event here because it will almost take a book to explain it. (How do you explain the depth of an epiphany, the emotions, the relationships, the before and after situation so that it makes a real impact for the reader…in a few paragraphs?) In fact, my first editor (a top-rate editor of spiritual books) crossed out the pages in my memoir where I wrote about this event because I don’t think it fit into her belief system. (Needless to say, I had no choice but to get myself new editors after that.)

Anyway, my epiphany showed me that the “difficult” people in my life were helping me fulfill my higher purpose by putting me through challenging situations that would teach me amazing things about truth, about unconditional love and about the deeper story of the Dark vs. the Light on this planet.

Furthermore, this event was doubly meaningful to me because a couple years earlier, I had been asked by the Counsel of Light to share what I would learn about how life on this planet really works and now with this epiphany, I had another significant and amazing thing to share, something original that was more than just a repeat of what’s currently available in the world! Anyway, that one event changed the way I viewed and interacted with the difficult people in my life forever. (Which allowed for more cooperation, more grace and ease, and more transformation.)

Growth and expansion (“ascension”) is possible when you ask your higher self for guidance regarding the challenging situation you’re in, muster up enough courage and confidence in the guidance to follow through with it promptly and consistently, and then notice the amazing things that happen and the insights you receive as a result of your following through. (My “how-to” eBook on 2012 helps activate this process in you quite quickly.)

I mean, you can even get to a point where you can have fun with this “dark” vs. “light” gig, you can begin to see it as sort of a game. And when you have learned how to play the game (“the game of duality,” as it’s sometimes called), you have become the master of your life.

At that point, The Game’s pretty much over…and it’s time for a new kind of Game. (One that fits into the Golden Age.)

Team Dark catalyzes events that we are meant to learn incredible things from. It’s much more empowering to view it this way than to see it as an unending battle. (Aside from the fact that it’s true that it’s a temporary situation we chose for our own personal growth.)

We’re wondering why nothing we want is happening around us…But this is the piece that’s missing in many people’s experiences. The faster we get this piece, the faster the Great Shift in Consciousness and the changes we all want will manifest.

To some extent we all know that the year 2012 represents a time of great transformation and change on this planet, and for the beginning of the Golden Age. But what is the catalyst for this transformation and change? And what motivates you to grow and change the most in your life?

I read a comment on another blog recently that was pure wisdom and I’ll share it with you here. But first, I have been saying for years that things will get worse on this planet before they get better, and I’m still saying that. But that’s because all the bad stuff being exposed motivates us to make real and significant changes in our world…changes that will contribute to the larger 2012 transformation. (I feel the tide will begin to turn sometime later this year.) Anyway, Katie’s comment:

Humans by and large are moved toward growth and expansion by trauma. What is more outwardly traumatic than the world we live in today? This overtly corrupt world is helping to open the eyes of many, readying them for connection with their own inner Source and power.  And help is always readily available on the inner planes. Would as many be waking up if the Enlightened Ones were softening the blows?–Katie

I like to call this growth and expansion “The Big Test” that each individual is going through.The Big Test involves discovering for yourself what you’re truly capable of, getting in touch with your inner power by applying it daily, getting your manipulated human mind (brainwashed by years of disempowering messages such as, “You’re not good enough,” “You’re incapable,” “Who do you think you are, anyway?” etc.) to accept that you really are a powerful, worthy and wonderful being.. particularly when you’re fulfilling your higher purpose and contributing to the creation of the Golden Age for all. (We all like to have evidence and results to back things up, you know…)

So…what motivates personal growth and expansion more than challenge, hardship, and even trauma? From my own personal experience, I can definitely say that the close-to-traumatic events in my life (beginning about 10 years ago) motivated my transformation and change the most. The difference now is, I notice that there are many more people (even in my own circle of friends) experiencing personal challenges than there were about ten years ago.

Here’s a important point to take from this blog post: What made those events “close-to-trauamtic” (and not truly traumatic) was the knowing I had (communicated to me by the Counsel of Light) that there was a divine reason I was in the deep doo-doo, that there wasn’t anything wrong with me, that I was in this because of the things that were right about me, and that my experience would later help many others. Getting through my experience transformed, strengthened and uplifted by the challenging events rather than being crushed by them and sharing that experience was going to help others. (This is the story my memoir tells…about my Big Test.)

Anyway, the blog post where I found Katie’s comment claimed that the Enlightened Ones/Angels/ETs have ascended and have now actually abandoned us: Just look all around you, nothing’s happening; we’re left alone. But this viewpoint isn’t true at all.

It may appear that way, but that’s because it’s difficult for the Enlightened Ones/Angels/ETs to get through to the consciousness of the vast majority of people on this planet.

The way the “Angels” help you is to guide you–through your inner guidance and “signs” they give you that some think are signs from “God” or the “Universe.”  They “rescue us” by guiding us, and this is how the transformation will manifest.

Transformation is likely to occur when your inner pain and need for change becomes greater than the discomfort you feel when you step outside your comfort zone. Pain and anguish are the ultimate motivators.

Emotional pain and confusion is what had me search for answers years ago…and I was led to the Counsel of Light, who were already waiting for me. They guided me through several channeled messages (received through a Channel) and I followed through with my guidance for years. Now I can understand this Ascension process, and the importance of reconnecting with your higher self and following through with your inner guidance such that you fulfill your higher purpose. I know that more people will awaken, and the way that will happen is by things getting even worse before they get better.

But no matter how crazy things get in your life, try to view it from this perspective: The chaos isn’t happening because there’s something wrong with you, but that you are going through a big test that will lead to your upliftment and the Golden Age in the not-too-distant future. Viewing it this way will make it a lot easier to get through.

I know that David Wilcock and many others have also spoken about the importance of alleviating the fears of those who don’t know what’s going on (your neighbors, family and friends) when some challenging events (such as the mass arrests of some elite) occur in the “near future.” Understanding better what’s going on will help people make it through the hard times with much more grace and ease.
