The Great Purification: Cauac

“I am Cauac,

initiation of fire on the water,

purple flaming pyre,

and winnowing rain of final surrender.

If you seek my rapture,

my unspeakable passion for wholeness will purify you,

searing the very foundations on which

you have built your most cherished illusions.”

(The Mayan Oracle)

On the Mayan Calendar, this glyph portends a time of profound quickening and extreme purification.  Cauac’s known qualities are purification, transformation, reunion, light body, activation for ascension, thunderbeings, lightning path, initiation by fire and the ecstasy of freedom.  My guides kept whispering the words “purge” to me for over one month but I couldn’t quite grab the gist of what they wanted me to transmit.  It took my husband actually getting very sick with food poisoning to make the point painfully clear.  In his 9 days of illness, he physically purged “everything” held in his system, then he had to revive his body with good nutrition, rest, sunshine, love and gentleness in the days that followed.  He told me he came to his personal wall of death and had to make a decision to stay or go.  He went about the Great Purification quite literally, I believe most of us will accomplish this same feat, literally or figuratively.  It is more than clear to me that the time has come to shed all unwanted debris, if you choose to or not.

Some people have been experiencing the purge as their structures fall away to be rearranged, or their relationships undergo endings and transitions, or their emotions overwhelm them to the point of medication and/or their physical bodies experience daily unheard of  aches and pains.  In the time of Cauac, one must clear the old karmas, release the old stories & judgements, let go of the unhealthy patterns and basically get your bodies in shape to be a light vehicle and sacred temple.  Afterall, we are on a spiritual journey and light mission, remember?

Facebook is so timely.  I have never experienced anything quite like this networking & communication tool that allows the timelines of the past, present and future to collide.  Did you think you could escape the old lover and your issues/karma together?  Oh no, he/she just found you on facebook!  Even your enemies are asking to be your facebook friends.  You can’t run, nor can you hide in this energy…it is time to face all one’s thoughts, for better or worse, and to reconcile all one’s feelings towards others, for better or worse.

Facebook is also an incredible marketing tool as so many of us have come to realize as we create personal or business fan clubs.  But Facebook is currently under scrutiny having experienced “privacy issues”.  The world is in uproar that their privacy has been invaded.  Kid yourself not- there is no privacy left.  As we move towards a telepathic, transparent planet, there is nothing that can be hidden, nothing to safeguard from the masses, no secret contracts to tuck away into the safety boxes by night.  Like the original people of Jean Auel’s  Clan of the Cave Bear, no-one can lie or deceive.  No-one would even attempt to lie as it would be painfully obvious, unheard of, strange and absolutely without dignity.  Behave now as if everyone can read your mind because  in a blink of time everyone will be able to read your mind and yes, we can actually thank visionary Mark Zuckerman and his Facebook for blasting open the telepathic paths & portals of the future.

Our world is so full of magic, it always has been.  On May 8th a new crop circle was created and discovered.  The design shed more clarity on this “purge”.  A world below ascending towards a new world.  A world above, descending to give assistance.  A new world created by the merging of the two.  Imagine though, in this new world created from the two- heavy, dense frequencies cannot be imported.  They must be purged from our systems so that we can safely arrive to meet our galactic neighbors.

At the moment our world is so riddled with dangers.  Volatile, unpredictable, insecure moments.  We are truly in the pregnancy time, 8th month, when Mama Earth herself is feeling overwhelmed by her upcoming birth.  I can remember this time in my own pregnancies when all I wanted to do was vomit due to the immense realization that I was in a situation that was going to be very intense.   Yes, we, as the human race, are all in the very, very deep end of the sea.   And at this moment, the sea is about to choke us for lack of oxygen or slick us full of seeping oil that can’t seem to cease its flow.  I am requesting all shamans to kindly step to the scene to play rescue on this ridiculous man-made disaster.  Or maybe its just part of  the plan:  part of our current earth game, “as the purge continues”.   Our galactic friends do seem to be reminding us that even through the overwhelming purge symptoms, we can actually be beautiful pregnant mama awaiting her birth in joyful anticipation (see first crop circle of 2010 below).

We have moved through the frist half of the 6th galactic night (mayan calendar).  The second half is suppose to be more action packed, more intense in the astrological alignments we will be facing and faster, so much faster!  See if you can wrap your mind around that.  Barbara Hand Clow said, ” Personally, I’ve found the pace of time acceleration during the Galactic Night Six to be almost unbearable.”   I couldn’t agree more. I am getting a royal ass kicking at the moment.  She further states that “There is no longer any question that time acceleration is influencing our times, as we seem to be in the middle of a new level of increase. Since the Spring Equinox, there has been a rapid wind-up of events in the world that makes many of us feel like reality is transforming three times faster.”  Faster and faster- round and round we go- there’s certainly no stopping the show now.

And Aluna Joy who felt the energies of the first crop circle descend on the evening of May 8th as she was in group meditation says she is  “noticing many symptoms of this new activation. Time and space is beginning to wobble even more erratically than before. We seem to be loosing track of time easily. The day simply disappears. We are not sleeping very well . . . again. There is lots of tossing and turning in the night. We are hearing reports of many unusual dreams. We are feeling huge power surges followed by energy drop-outs. There were many reports of nausea, and body aches and pains. Many felt deep grief.  Some felt like they were walking on water. Others said that when they closed their eyes at night, everything was spinning. There have been visual disturbances, inner ear issues, throat and thyroid issues, cold feet (from being between worlds) and even a weird symptom of having tongue dryness. These symptoms are already subsiding here in Sedona, but they seem to be spreading across the earth quickly.”

Cauac, the great purification of the body temple.  Cauac, the lightning storm that shatters all illusions.  Cauac, the initiation by fire that moves us from separation to ascension.  Cauac, the final transformation.  Welcome- it is your time!

This full moon is known as “baptism under fire”,

Honesty in the 6th Galactic Night of the Mayan Calendar

“confess with me

your inner most thoughts,

your deepest desires,

your darkest secrets,

your most desperate longings,

for I shall not judge thee,

but embrace thee!”

In the Mayan evolutionary theory, we are in the Ethical Era, and in order to evolve as a species, one must be living truthfully.  Any white lies, large lies or areas of your life where you have misrepresented yourself or been dishonest will become so very painful in this, the 6th night of the Mayan Calendar, November 8, 2009 to November 2, 2010. The final purge has arrived and for some individuals their way of life is about to dismantle.  Confession time is imminent!

André Agassi, former World Champion tennis professional, considered to be one of the world’s best players ever, recently revealed in his new autobiography that he engaged in taking drugs to win a tennis open one year when his form was off.   Failing his drug test,  he proceeded to lie to the sports council regarding the matter.  I am not surprised to witness his revelations to the public in his new book as the incoming Mayan evolutionary energies of the last 10 years has been revolving around the theme of truth & integrity.

I went to school with the Agassi’s.  André’s sister, Tammy, was one of my good childhood friends.  They were a lovely family filled with integrity, strong opinions, and a good conscious.  I am convinced André confessed his actions as his consciousness got the better of him.  He revealed his truth and in doing so said to the public at large, “I made a mistake.  I am sorry.”  We, as humans recognize his infallibility, commend his brave admissions and release his actions.  He may lose his title and cash prizes- every lie has a consequence-but he will be forgiven and the heavy load of his lies will be all the lighter.  Sooner or later, it will become a distant past memory, embodied, learned from, not to be repeated.   Life will usher in renewed, powerful experiences for Andre Agassi and his rebalanced spirit will triumph once again.

Although I am new to the Mayan calendar theories, I am schooled and versed in the Tarot.   This era can be compared to the “20” card named Judgement Day/Reckoning Day.  In the traditional tarot imagery, the brilliance of  the angels shines upon the people in the card, rendering them naked in truth before a higher power.  The meaning of the card is that each and every individual will have to search their heart and mind to see what illusions persist, what games are being played and what lies will be revealed.  Celestially purged of the unnecessary, one can finally wake up to a new and exciting reality.  In the next year, no stone will remain unturned as the 6th night seeks to complete its final creation mission which is to lead everyone on earth into integrity.  Every soul will have to hold a mirror to themselves and face their reflection.  Do you like what you see?  Are you a sparkly, multifaceted diamond filled with light?  Are you a magical kaleidoscope of shapes?  Are you a crystal clear ball of luminosity?  Are you a midnight shining star?  If not, you have some work to do!

No worries though, jaguar is here to help you.  Jaguar is the Mayan animal that teaches us about truth, integrity & impeccability.  Jaguar’s mission is to devour any unclean aspects of our behavior.  Jaguar dishes out penalties for inappropriate behaviour, meanwhile offering rewards for those who have operated in honesty (Medicine Cards by Jamie Sams & David Carson).  Jaguar says that he must roam our dreams now.  Jaguar rules the 6th galactic night. Some people, and you may know a few of these, would rather die than be honest or live honestly.  I am from the Belizean Creole culture.  For the most part, we are a chancey, sneaky and liared (creole for deceitful) tribe.  We are descendants of slaves & pirates and have inherited a few undesirable behavioural characteristics along the way.  My Belizean tribe is in trouble in this 6th night.  I send a prayer out to all those with ears to hear that they may learn to embody the new spiritually awakened energies.  We live in the heart of Mayaland and jaguars literally roam around us:  here the energies will be brutally intense.

as the ship sinks…

What most people worldwide require at this time is the “inipo” ceremony- most commonly called the sweat lodge.  Inipo is a Lakota word which means “you should purify yourself”. (The Lakota Sweat Lodge Cards by Chief Archie Fire Lame Deer and Helene Sarkis).  The intense heat and steam of the Inipo Lodge forces all disease, fear, and maladies to leave the body.  Often sacred herbs like copal, sweetgrass or sage are used to assist the spirit.  The Inipo prepares one for a sacred journey.  Our sacred journey is the Mayan Galactic 6th night. We must tread this time in wonder and with reverence.

Remember in a previous article I likened the Galactic 6th night to the 6th night of Biblical creation- God’s last night of creation before the 7th day when he shall rest. This is it- our Creator’s final glory! If you have done some inner work, life will be offering you beautifully, powerful growth & creation experiences in the next year; if not…woe be to your nervous system.  Dhyani Ywahoo, Shaman, Cherokee Tribe says, “The denial of the fire of truth in yourself is going to be the denial of your heart’s beat- maybe you make your arteries get hard or something like that.”  This has always been my understanding- an inability to evolve leads to death.

Swedish biologist and Mayan scholar Carl Calleman says, “What is about to transpire now is in other words not something that has ever happened before in the history of the universe. Maybe this impending change, partially unknown, causes the widespread denial that I feel dominate many people at the current moment.  If my understanding of the Mayan calendar is correct we will in this coming night be witnessing the most significant transformation of consciousness ever in the history of mankind. What seems clear however is that people will be divided as to whether they want to flow with the incoming energies leading towards a new world or if they will resist them and seek to hold on to or go back to the system of the past” .  One recommendation he makes to successfully come through the next year is ethical living and telling the truth.

The urgency here stems from the fact that our telepathic powers are returning in full force.  As this happens, the current hologram ( “reality” ) we live in is quickly shifting.  Cataclysmic pole shift, I don’t think so, intense magnectic realignments leading to hologram renewal is more like it.  In order to access our own powers, in order to survive, you must be standing upright and honest-you must be transparent. A quote from Ariel Spilsbury & Michael Bryner of The Mayan Oracle deck states, “In transparency, (new) worlds are created”. Reread that line- it is simple and profound.

Enlightened Souls, once again these times can be manuevered with grace, our new world is here- let us then simply live transparently, telepathically sharing our thoughts without shame or manipulation.  Back in our delightful earth garden (the Garden of Eden), innocent, joyful, passionate, with absolutely nothing to hide.  Baby butt naked if you like!

The Ancestors, the Maya & the Calendar

children's book

children's book

 

It’s that time of the year when I climb into the attic and find my two boxes of family photographs.  I’ve never bothered sorting these photos into albums, they are simply a hodge podge mess of hundreds of photos stored in small boxes.  I once again promise myself, as I do each year, to file these ancestral photos separately so I wont have to go on this annual hunt for faces that have long since passed this world.  Even as I promise myself, I come to a realization, I actually love this ritual which takes me down my life’s memory lane.  Slowly, I flip through each photo after photo in search of my daughter, my mother, grandmother, great-grandma, grandpa, aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, animals, family homes, and anything else that has come and gone. Sometimes I even pull out people, not dead, but long-lost in my life.  I am preparing myself to build our family’s annual ” Day of the Dead Altar”.  I gather flowers, candles, incense, chocolate, perfume & oils, tobacco,  and alcohol as I arrange the photographs into a beautiful table display which depicts my genealogical lineage.  Voila!!!  The ancestors and I are all together again.

In the Mayan belief system, humans and everything in our world are sung into existence from the Otherworld.  The Otherworld is where the ancestors live as spirits.  The spirits love to watch humans with their bodies.  They love that there are hands with which to paint, draw, write, bake, cook, massage, and farm.  They love that there are feet with which to walk, dance, or run.  They love that humans have bodies with which to feel and make love.  They, the spirits, are mesmerized with our existence, so they continue to compose creation songs which sing the world continually into being.  Interestingly enough, I remember reading about an African village where upon birth, a musician had to hear and capture the emerging child’s birth song.  Then he would teach the song to the whole village.  That song would be sung to the child throughout their respective life, but especially in the tough times that required discipline.  The purpose of the song was to always remind the child who they were.  The song would lead the child back to their path and purpose if they had strayed too far away.  There are many shamans that heal and restore health to a body with the power of song and sounds.

When we arrive here, on the Earth, via the birth canal, we are beseechingly overwhelmed by the colours, the beauty and the human forms on this Planet.  When we arrive, unbeknownst to us, we have been coded with a purpose and we have been fully equipped to fulfill that mission.  As many of you are aware, Mayans are born under certain glyphs/signs and tones that reveal their life purpose.  Arriving souls subsequently develop an acute amnesia regarding where they have come from and how they were created.  We will not “remember” the Otherworld in detail until much later in life as we begin to draw near to that lovely place again.   That is why in the Mayan belief system, the elders are revered for the wisdom they impart within the community, for it is these very elders that hold the necessary information regarding the Otherworld.  The Maya are born with original debt, unlike the Christians who are born with original sin.  It is the Mayan elders role to hear what the Otherworld is saying, what it is sometimes demanding, and to convey these messages.  The elders are a constant reminder to every one of their debt and their inherent obligation to pay their debts.

It is crucial to understand that there is a delicate balance that must be maintained between our world and the Otherworld.  We actually make an agreement, a binding contract, with our ancestors to remember them and most importantly, to remember to feed them once we are on the Earth.  We must feed the ancestors the things that they love.  The ancestors love art & beauty, they love eloquent speeches or exquisitely composed music, they love hand-made meals or objects of interest, they love dances and parties, they love altars and flowers and quite frankly, the ancestors love to see humans lose their minds with alcohol when used ceremonially for ritual or celebration, and they love deep expressions of heartfelt emotions.   In an ancient Mayan home, (pre-/Christopher Columbus) you would consistently find a house altar containing idols, icons and mementos to the ancestors.  On all festivities, the ancestors would be welcomed and ritually fed.  At all difficult moments, the ancestors would be summoned and ritually fed.  The Mayans were more than aware that in order to live harmoniously, a fee was extracted, and that fee was the ritual foods being offered which must hold all of life’s beauty.   It is no surprise to the Maya that in our present times, the world at large is so dangerously unharmonious.  There are centuries of unfed, starving ancestors.  It is no accident that 1 in every 6 person on the Earth is malnourished and dying of hunger.

Our modern-day problems are compounded.  Not only do we have unfed ancestors, but we have ancestors that were not grieved to their death in a proper, beautiful burial manner.  This creates an exorbitant amount of entities and ghosts.  According to Martin Prechtel, an infamous Shaman from the Guatemalan Highlands (www.floweringmountain.com), the entities, ghosts and the unfed ancestors, cannot be ignored, left unfed, or displaced into a corner of Western civilization’s emotionally sick mind as mere superstition or nonsensical primitive religious beliefs.  The Shaman says the problem is real large.  They (entities, ghosts, ancestors) will extract their payment one way or the other, they will be fed.  They, comically enough, will feed on our psyche’s causing depression, lethargy and mental or emotional illnesses.  When they are done with the psyche, they will feed on our bodies, causing physical harm or illness.  When they are done with their immediate family member, they will feed on someone near and dear who the family member loves.  Wow!  Ignoring the ancestors can cause harm to ourselves and to others we love.  How profound!

Pretchel says that even in the most indigenous, balanced village, all humans actually wreak havoc on the world and offend the Otherworld.  It is the elders responsibility to point out how we have done our damage.  And if the damage is too large, then the village shaman is called upon to correct the delicate balance which has been disturbed.   Many years ago, I received a shamanic soul journey with Char Sundust (www.charsundust.com).  I sought out Char because I was having difficulty remaining in the present moment of life.  I was always running away from myself and anyone else who triggered off my deep emotional wounds.  Due to a childhood of ritual sexual abuse, I had learned to escape into various corners of my mind.  Char delved right into the problem and located my grandfather, the source of the problem,  in the Otherworld  (Yes, he had crossed because so many people loved him, grieved his death, and sent him to the Otherworld with glory and pomp.  Thank goodness.  Once back in the Otherworld, he understood his mistakes.)  Char was able to dialogue with him and have him communicate with me:  He came to me as a frigate bird, he was apologetic and promised to assist me on a path of  sexual empowerment.  He asked me to carry apologies to all his relations for the wrong he had inflicted.  This session was emotionally charged, tearful, deep and explosive.  One conversation, one heartfelt apology and years of abuse was forgiven.  He said he had been waiting to release his healing balm, but no-one had communicated (fed) him as of yet, so, in fact, he was feeding on his own son’s psyche, who was meanwhile sexually abusing his little daughter.  Was it Shakespeare who said, “oh, the tangled webs we weave” ?  All parts of my shattered soul were returned to me in this powerful healing session which Char facilitated.  I began to build my altars.

my altar

For the Maya, though, it is much more than building an annual altar.  ” Day of the Dead” is a Catholic custom coinciding with All Soul’s Day which was the conquerer’s compromise to the native pagans for all their ancestral worship.  The Maya’s constant communications with their ancestors was a daily, live and intricate relationship built on survival and interdependence.  We can liken it to one’s relationship with God.  They kept little ancestor altars in their own houses so that they could draw on the strength, knowledge and assistance of the ancestors at any time.  They kept these houses as a reminder of their daily debt.  Remember the Lord’s Prayer?  My new version:  ” Our Grandfather who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.  Give us each day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.  Lead us not into temptation, deliver us  from evil, for Thine is the Kingdom and the Glory and the Power, forever and ever.  Amen”.  The ancestors actually are the Biblical concept of God the Father.  The ancestors created our world and continue to feed us, so we must feed them. It is pretty simple…

My mother died 21 years ago.  I have not felt her spirit around me much over those years.  Most recently though, my brother was coming to visit to introduce me to his fiance.  I pillaged through a jewelry box in search of a gift for my brother’s future wife.  I spied a beautiful gold ring from my mother with a “C” initial on it.  Since the fiance was named Christina, and my mother’s name Cynthia, I thought this would be a perfect gift.  I placed the ring on my finger and awaited an opportune time to give the gift.  That time never arrived.  From the moment my mother’s ring and I merged, I magically conjured up her spirit and an ear full of information.  She kept telling me- “this wedding will never happen- do not give my ring away”.  She was so adamant, that, truly, I never gave that ring away.  One month later, my mother’s favourite brother, my Uncle came to visit.  He spied that ring up on my finger and had to manuever many of his own feelings about missing my mother.  My husband and I were in economical distress at the time of his visit.  “Hey”, he said at some point in his vacation, “did you ever go apply for your mother’s pension funds?”  Long story short, 20 years after my mother’s death- I was receiving some long forgotten, unclaimed, magic money, just in time!

On October 31, 2009, Halloween, in Latin American countries, some family member will head to the graveyard to clean the family gravesites. The Halloween children will don their costumes and sing, “trick or treat, money or sweet, give me something good to eat”.  The Wiccans/Pagaens will celebrate the veil being so thin, Samhain, and commence to communicate with their dead.  On November 1, 2009, All Saints Day, churchgoing Catholics will attend mass and recite their Hail Mary’s as they think of their most revered saints and their dead relatives who have made it to Heaven.  On November 2, 2009, All Souls Day and Day of the Dead, families will convene at the cemetery with marigold flowers, toys, candy, incense, tequila and food.  Like I said, the ancestors just love a party.  In a traditional Maya home, it will be another glorious day of life with the ancestors.

As we approach the Mayan Calendar end date and our own evolutionary transcendence, I have to state bluntly, if you have residual shadows, entities, ghosts, past hurts and pains left unprocessed within your family tree; it will be very difficult to craft your crucial and necessary body of light, your merkaba.  “In order to realize and plant the seeds of a new worldview, our bodies and souls need more than the human world” (Geoff  Stray, Shaman).  That’s right, we need the ancestors.  Just as Mother Earth is currently undergoing her own earth changes (which will begin to intensify now) in an effort to shed unwanted emotional debris, darkness and heavy vibrational energies, we must do them same (as within, so without; microcosm to the macrocosm).  We must be free and clear of all emotional baggage, despair, fear, anger, frustration and depression, especially in regards to our genealogical lineage.  Turn around and face your ghosts, those frightening entities and all your ancestors.   Any grievance from the past can be healed right now! I know there are so many terrible and awfully painful stories in this world.  I have swallowed and digested enough of the global sorrow to be empathetic.  There does come a time though, when we must transcend the dark ages with grace, when our horror stories must be transformed to touching works of art (watch “The Boy in the Striped Pajamas”).

In the psychological clearing work called Family Constellations, the therapist emphasizes the importance of healing all family member’s past actions; events like suicide, sexual, emotional or physical abuses, squandering of inheritance funds, incessant gambling, manipulation, alcoholism, fraud, corruption, greed, murder, adultery, etc…   All past actions of our relations left unhealed will revisit us or someone we love right here in our present destroying lives.  I have been told that all conscious souls are completing their lifetime karmas’ at this moment- cleaning up, clearing out.  Again, our light bodies have to be feather light. Build your ancestral altars and don’t bother to dismantle them.  Call on everyone who has been a part of your biological make-up to join you at a family council meeting in the ethers and begin the difficult discussions that need to take place- heal, forgive, release, let go, resolve, unravel, unwind, purge any difficult emotions- come to peace with your families, your ancestors; feed them with your life! Know that they are the source that sustains you or maims you here on Earth.  If situations are too rigidly stuck, call in a shaman to help clear the debris and restore balance.  Do this now so you can ascend!  We are at five minutes to midnight on the Mayan Calendar, be crystal clear, in the new Earth paradigm, only the healthy minds are invited and you will be too heavy if you haven’t resolved your ancestral dilemmas.  I leave off wishing you a very Happy All Souls Day/Day of the Dead.

Celestial Speed-Up

Once upon a time, in a far away, hard to imagine past, billions of years ago, Earth began its long and delicate journey into consciousness as a cell.  These cells multiplied, they grew, they expanded, they evolved in a never-ending spiral of movement into the living lifeforms of whom we are today.  Along the way, there were a few plants, animals and some humans that could not adapt and change, therefore, they could not evolve. These distant relations, our brothers and sisters, were left behind in their respective eras.  According to  a well known scholar of the Mayan Calendar, humans have undergone nine stages of creation, evolution and consciousness on the Earth (cellular, mammalian, familial, tribal, cultural, national, planetary, galactic, and universal) in the last 16.4 billion years. Each of these respective stages has had its challenges and set-backs, as well as its successes and triumphs.  Each of these stages has been successively shorter, while gaining in advancement.  Creation, evolution, and consciousness (these words will be used interchangeably in this article) has never ceased to occur but very soon will reach its climax.  Peak closely at the nine steps on the Mayan Temple below.

mayan temple 9 levels of consciousness

mayan temple 9 levels of consciousness

This temple is a living monument to our time on Earth and our human growth.  This Temple represents our evolution from 16.4 billion years until its imminent completion in 2011/2012.  Each step is a stage of evolution, each step is very steep, and each step becomes increasingly shorter.  We are currently on our 8th step known as the Galactic Era.  This era, which began in 1999 and will complete its super quick cycle in February 2011, is about behaving ethically!  Guess what? Greed, corruption, control, manipulation, slavery and all forms of left brain dominant thinking modalities leading to unethical behaviour has reached its zenith.  If you haven’t learned to behave ethically, you will be joining the dinosaurs, the cromagnums (cavemen) and the other extinct lifeforms that were composted.   At which time, the rest of humanity will enter the ninth and final stage of human evolution:  the Universal Era- a time when we remember how to consciously evolve and co-create our realities; a time when we remember we are truly the Gods and the Goddesses.

So, dear Gods and Goddesses, does it feel like time has sped-up? like the world is moving faster and faster?  In all actuality, time has not changed one bit, the movement of natural time is ancient. What has sped-up is human consciousness. Consciousness which originally took billions of years to develop in the Cellular Era, now only takes 13 years to develop in the Galactic Era.  To understand this is to understand a little math.  The Maya believe that each stage of consciousness requires 7 “days” and 6 “nights” (or 13 phases) of time in which to develop creation to its full potential.  Sound familiar? The Biblical creation story of Genesis, the 13 moons?  Unlike the Christians though, the Maya believe it takes 9 stages to create the world whole.  The Maya also believe that we cycle faster and faster and faster through each stage.  The Cellular Era began 16.4 billion years ago.  If you divided this number by 13 (7days+6nights), then you will comprehend that in this era, one day or one night of creation actually equalled 1.26 billion years each. It took that long to graduate from the first era into the next, the Mammalian Era (see chart below, a “kin” is equivalent to a day).

The Mammalian Era is when creation worked on complex lifeforms.  It began 1.26 billion years ago, simply divide by the 13 phases of time to understand each day or night actually took 63.4 million years.  The Familial Era is when monkeys’ organized themselves by family units.  It began 41 million years ago, each day or night actually took 3.2 million years.  The Tribal Era is when the first humans arrived.  It began 2 million years ago, each day and night took  160,000 years.  The Cultural Era brought us the spoken language.  It began in 100, 500 BC, each day and night took 7900 years .  The National Era was a time when humans developed writing.  It began in 3114 BC,  each day and night took 396 years each.  The Planetary Era was about industrialism.  It began in 1755 AD and completed its cycle in 1999,  each day and night required 20 years each.

The Planetary Era is when most of us, and everyone we knew, lived, worked and created. Think about this time in history:  the inventions, the creations, the movement of our lives prior to 1999.  I remember the microwave oven, cable t.v. and arcades being highly technological.  I remember that stores definitely closed on Sundays, if not Saturdays and Sundays, and that weekends were sacred.  I remember you had to walk into a bank to get money and that ATM’s revolutionized banking.  My husband is 21 years older than me, his memories differ.  He remembers his mother purchasing her first washing machine, the first time they had a television set in the house and his boyish excitement upon receiving his first record player.  Case in point, life moved at a steady, slowly creative pace.

We now find ourselves here in the Galactic Era.  The Galactic Era is an information revolution age.  It has only 13 years to its cycle, 1999-2011, divide by the 13 phases of time, each day and night actually takes only 1 year (compare this to the Cellular Era).  Think of the inventions, the creations and the movement of our lives since 1999:  computers, email, world wide web, dvd’s, ipods, mp3’s, digital cameras, etc…  Work weeks that require 60+hours of your personal time, no weekends to speak of, shopping available at all times at the push of a button and rumours of tourism travel to the moon. Naturally, since we have lived in the pace of the Planetary Era for most of our lives, it does feel as if time is moving very fast; too fast.

Interestingly enough, even though our consciousness has sped up, our brains (mind) can only process so much information in a second; 24 thoughts in one second to be exact.  Our Galactic Era has enabled us to invent technology that is processing information at a rate far exceeding our mind.  Computers are processing billions of bits of information in a second.   Just think of  searching on “google”.  How quick one receives an answer to their simple question amidst a world library of information.   This new era seems unnaturally fast, our minds just can’t seem to keep up with all the information and daily changes.  This causes an extreme amount of stress in the body.  In the past, upon feeling stress or danger, one had a natural fight or flight reaction.  In today’s world, one must know how “to manage dangerous amounts of stress“.  Most people don’t!  Look around at how many of your family members, friends or co-workers are “managing” their stress with unconsciousness in the form of an addiction to drugs, alcohol, prescription pills, shopping, tv watching, video game playing, gambling and/or sex and pornography. In the final era known as the Universal Era, consciousness will move to the speed of light.

The Universal Era is about transformation and ascension.  It will begin on February 10, 2011 and will last a grand total of 260 days, divide by the 13 phases of time, each creation day and night will be a short 20 days.  In the Universal Era, those of you who have prepared your light bodies, will be evolving into fully realized spiritual beings who understand your true nature and the extent of your earthly powers.  This is the moment we all came here to witness and be a part of, our own forthcoming evolution and transcendence which has taken 16.4 billion years to accomplish.

Salutations, awakened ones, do you understand the immensity of what’s about to occur here on Planet Earth?  The entire Galactic Nation is watching us in awe.  We humans are about to birth ourselves into their universal realm. Have you ever witnessed a birth?  I have had 5 children- all at home, all natural; 3 with my husband as my midwife and 2 with traditional, indigenous midwives.  Birth is incredibly powerful, sometimes messy, often treacherous and scary, although, once successful, most fulfilling and breathtakingly beautiful. We are on our magnificent way…in the 8th month here, so to speak…

Needless to say, if the pace of the Galactic Era has been kicking your butt, imagine how we are all going to feel very soon.  Humanity, in the Universal Era, will be going completely out of their minds, and believe you me, that is the master plan.  Yes, indeed, we are suppose to “go out of our minds” in order to reclaim our “peace of mind, awaken our world mind” and find a few other qualities that we lost along the way. Our gut instinct, our intuition, our center of harmony, and our telepathic abilities; all of which have all been buried in the modern world, lying dormant, mostly unused and awaiting retrieval at this time in our evolution.  Here are a few guidelines then for maneuvering this evolution process, this acceleration that I have termed celestial speed-up.

Unconsciousness, tuning out (addictions) will be the most dangerous choice one can make at this point in time.  It is imperative to be awake, fully aware lest you find yourself in a undesirable or dangerous situation.  I live in a hurricane zone.  I remember the year 2000 when a category 4 hurricane whipped through my island home wrecking havoc.  For one month prior to the hurricane, I was watching the ants move their egg sacks up to higher ground.  When the crabs began to climb the trees, I knew nature was about to bring us a surprise, so I prepared my home and my mind for the inevitable. I am safely here to tell the tale.  Addictions will help you zone out, but what you really need right now is to be “in the zone” (staying present:  try yoga, conscious movement, meditation or dance).  Think back on Indonesia’s disastrous tsunami, the animals ran for higher ground hours before the tsunami hit, some people did the same, they were saved.  If you are awake, you can listen to your gut instincts, your intuition.  If you medicate your way through these next years…you have my compassion as the results will be increasingly fatal (rest in peace DJ AM)!   Operating from unconsciousness manifests outcomes that are often not the most highly aligned for our soul’s purpose.

Logic, which has served us well in the past, is about to become useless; remember we need to lose our minds, literally! Logic limits Great Mystery while locking one into out-moded belief systems.  I had a psychic reading the other day and I was trying to express to my client the need to stop thinking and start feeling what he needed in relation to work and money.  I told him I was hearing strongly that he loved the forest, the great outdoors and working with wood.  He exclaimed angrily, “I can’t make money at that for a family and a house.  I have to be an electrician.”  This type of thinking is the second most dangerous choice one can make.  There are an infinitude of  opportunities and possibilities, but you must blast your mind wide open in order to see and feel them.  We must learn to get out of our heads and back into our hearts.  Thinking too much, making choices that weren’t heartfelt has gotten everyone into one heap of trouble on the Planet.  Listening to our heart, even though it might not make sense, is the one piece of advice most Mayan elders are telling people when questioned about the “end calendar days”.  I had a beehive’s nest being formed in my business customer bathroom. I had to have three experts over, all of whom suggested spraying poisons.  I kept praying for an organic solution for these beautiful creatures who are a crucial link to to our very own survival.  At last, a Mayan beekeeper with knowledge on how to smoke them out and relocate the nest arrived in my life.  “Listen from within, your heart knows the Way” (Anahata Katkin).

November 8,2009 begins the 6th night of the creation phase of the Galactic Era.  All the prophets of the Mayan Calendar are predicting a global calamity of the old economic systems on Earth in this next Gregorian Calendar year 2010.  But deep down, we knew this, didn’t we?  Do you think the banking industry, Wall Street or the real estate market are now playing ethically because of their little shake-up? Enormous bail outs, dow jones climbing up and up, unemployment decreasing?   Somewhere inside, our gut instincts must be alerting us to the lies of the media and the disastrous conclusions of 5000 years of unnatural living.  I remember mentioning that each era had a few challenges and set-backs.  One of ours will be an economic collapse demanding fair & fail proof restructuring, the writing is on the wall.  “This fall is the real beginning of the great changes on Earth“(Barbara Hand Clow).

I leave you with these navigational tools for our imminent Celestial Speed-up:   remain alert, but lose your mind, follow your heart, not your head, listen to your body, your gut, and your instincts  and you will magically be fulfilling your path and purpose, surprisingly, you will also find that your telepathic powers are alive and well.

Be Safe, Be Happy and Always Flow Freely!
