December 21, 2012

So here it is, December 21, 2012 and the day has dawned as I fully expected it to. As I sipped my morning coffee waiting to greet the light of a new day, I smiled and wondered to myself what all the fearful people were planning to fear next now that the End of the World marketing has been milked completely dry. So much focus has been dedicated to the possibility of a catastrophic end to life as we know it. One fact that was overlooked by many was that the Mayan calendar never predicted catastrophe. That has always been a Western culture construct. The Mayans actually predicted an ‘apocalypse’ which is vastly more far-reaching and miraculous if we choose to see it as such. Why? Because ‘apocalypse,’ in translation is a ‘revealing.’ A revealing of what, you might ask. It is a revealing of a truth that has been behind the veil of our conscious awareness. A truth about the illusion we have been living within for eons.

We are transitioning through the end of one age and the beginning of another. It is a focal point. A place to put our focus where it will be of the most benefit, not just to Self but to each other. I am quick to augment this with the fact that each moment augers the same opportunities for change. One does not need such a monumental platform in order to enact change at all but as long as the platform is here we might as well use it to our collective advantage.

Our focus is our authentic power by which all things are made manifest. It is immeasurable. When we collectively focus on specific targets, miracles occur. It is in this way that you become a catalyst–a change agent–and you begin to understand that you are truly a miracle in motion. Think about it. If your focus has been based from your personal point of fear, and your focus manifests, what have you been contributing, manifesting and allowing? When you experience the power that you are, you realize that fear is simply the absence of Love–the Love of Self–the Love for each other–and the Love of our planet. In essence, you fear Love–which is who you are. When you deliberately focus your power you realize there is absolutely nothing to fear because the Self is fully equipped with the power that creates worlds. Heady stuff!

So if you were to give your attention to something, which is your focus, which in turn is your power, what would you give it to? What do you want to see changed? Some say they would want an end to war, a stable economy, love for one another and to live in peace. To that I say, all is possible—IF they are willing to give it the attention it deserves in their own lives. The ‘world’ is a collective of all vibrational energy from every individual who breathes. It is not something external that we view each night on the news. It is here. It is now. It is in you. It is you–and has been all along. If you believe for a moment that you are not the kind of person who would hurt another, think again. Every time you judge, every time you loathe, every time you punish those vibrations amass with every other individual’s contribution and are played out in full expression on a world stage. When we see the darkness of it, when we witness the pain of it, we still do not recognize that we have contributed to it by what we carry within.

The ‘revealing’ that will occur and is occurring is assisting the shadow side of Self to bubble up to the surface to be acknowledged and healed. So it is with our world–or stage. When your old paradigms and conditioning have been attended to, the world, which is our mirror will reflect it back to us. The paradigms existing in our world because of our vibrational contributions will implode and crumble in order for new paradigms to be seeded, nurtured and birthed. This time of paradigm collapse on an individual level and, in turn, the world, might buffet us to and fro for a time. Hold your focus steady on what you prefer the outcome to be and give little attention to what is seemingly happening. There is absolutely nothing that is impossible–even though we have been conditioned to believe we are powerless. The nature of the illusion now has a crack in its veneer and the light of Truth will shine blindingly in many areas. Chaos may reign for a time but you–together with your deliberate focus–will help pave the way for not only for you in your own life but for all of us and all who come after us. Change is here, as it has been in every moment. Now it is just taking center stage. Be mindful of your focus–or what you give your attention to in your daily lives. You are needed–not your fears or resentments, bitterness or judgments. When we begin to understand the nature of who we truly are we will see clearly there is no Self at all–just one beautiful and powerful stream of pure positive energy that we ride, sharing and expressing our perceived individuality. We have the power because we are that power. The question is, can you get over yourself enough to be that power.

Belief Structures

We all initially function with a borrowed belief structure. It is handed down from our parents, from their parents, who learned it from parents of parents long before us. It is in this way that belief structures certainly are integrated into our dna and are perpetuated over eons of time.

The question is, does this borrowed belief system serve us well over time? Generally, the answer is probably not. We all need to learn the same things like how to tie our shoes, to look both ways before crossing the street or not to touch a hot stove. But when it comes to other topics, topics that we should have a choice as to whether we believe the same as we have been taught by our parents, the belief system falls short.

How many times have you heard someone say, or have you said yourself, “If it was good enough for my parents, it is good enough for me.” Probably a lot. There are some tried and true beliefs that serve us well but more often than not we have been conditioned to believe certain people, certain ideas, certain choices, are not appropriate. As adults, you carry this belief structure around, abiding by it and consistently wondering why you aren’t comfortable in your own skin.

There comes a time in every adult life when the borrowed belief system should be dismantled, reviewed, and ultimately rebuilt in keeping with what you happen to believe is appropriate. Whether those dismantled pieces are the shards of religion, politics, behaviour, or life choices, they should be reviewed and considered carefully before deciding to reintegrate them back into the structure. It is okay to think differently from your parents, siblings, friends, and colleagues. It is definitely okay to be you.

Reconstructing a more suitable belief structure is part of the nature of a paradigm shift. Once you have made this all-important shift you will see that your life miraculously shifts with you.

Once you have undertaken this review you will initially sense a swell of relief as you discard all that has not been working for you. You will feel a freshness in life as you step into the world as who you are instead of who your ancestors and current family think you should be.

When you have realigned your belief structure you have actually broken a cycle within the dna itself. Perhaps you will be seeding the fact that being and living as you truly are is exactly what you came here to do. What a wonderful gift to give, not only to yourself, but for those souls yet to arrive.

Be mindful of who you are and take on the task of self-discovery according to your learned beliefs as opposed to reacting to your conditioning. Life will never be the same.
