The pulsating energy that kept us up in deep discussion last night just had to be shared with you today. It has been as if a veil has been lifted from our eyes and we woke to see this global “shift” from a whole new perspective. This insight came from looking at the world and the 2012 phenomenon from an intuitive, uniquely feminine point of view. Now, more than ever we are committed to our mission to recognize the power of the feminine in order to balance and harmonize ourselves, our relationships, our communities, our government and our environment.
Yesterday we attended a cacao ceremony and this was the experience that “shifted” our perspective. Cacao has been used by the Maya and other Latin American indigenous peoples as a sacred medicine to open up the heart, connect to spirit, and reveal what must be remembered, restored and brought back to wholeness. As the medicine man began his work with us, a group of 12 men and women, one main question arose within the group: is a global shift occurring? What does December 21, 2012 mean and should we be scared of the end of the world as we know it?
This discussion began when one of the participants revealed to the Medicine Man that at age six, she was traumatized by Nostradamus’ predictions of the possible horrific future that awaited the world. The Medicine man brought up the fact that Nostradamus, like many of the seers of our times, saw the future from a male, religious, and fear-based perspective. The medicine man went on to explain that Nostradamus believed that the world was ending because he could not see beyond a certain point in time. What he could not know or understand was that during the 20th century we would begin to create our reality on the conscious level. It was no longer just an elite few who would be in the know of our true potential, now a large segment of our population would grow to understand that we were no longer victims of outside forces. We could indeed co-create with the universe, our lives and our world through our thoughts, words and actions. This is why the future did not exist for Nostradamus: we had not created it yet, so how could he ever predict it?
It is time for us to rise up in full acknowledgement of who we really are! We are co-creators creating this world together. What do each of us bring to this global table? What do we choose to create? It is a choice. One thing that seems very clear to us is that this 2012 apocalyptic paradigm reeks of old imbalanced, mind-and-fear-based drama. The question isn’t whether a major catastrophe will happen or not. As a society, we have caused plenty of disharmony on this planet, and it is intuitive to feel there will be consequences to our actions. The real question is, when something happens, how will we react?
Our world has been working with fear as its driving force for far too long. When we allow ourselves to think from our feminine, intuitive heart, we know the better way, the clear path, the way of love.
These unsustainable, archaic ideas support the view that we need disaster and fear at the forefront of our experience in order to appreciate life and transcend into the spiritual, heart-based creatures that we really are. But we say, “We didn’t sign up for that and why must we, if we are the creators of our reality?” This does not mean that we need to continue to disrespect our planet, life and any living beings. There is truth in the teachings of our Mayan, Hopi, and Kogi elders-- as well as numerous other sources and traditions. The earth is talking to us; her waters are rising in many places. On Lake Atitlan, Guatemala where we are right now, the water has risen 3 meters in 2 years. Some places are obviously becoming unstable due to all kinds of earth changes, volcanic activity, hurricanes, etc. The earth is always changing, and as we begin to reconnect to her cycles, her patterns, we cannot help but to see that she breathes, expands, explodes, and recreates. And we also cannot deny that humans have interfered with her natural ability to heal herself, to sustain life and to thrive.
Tomorrow December 21st and beyond marks the beginning of a new age, the end of a 26,000 year cycle. If our commitment is to co-create a new world, how do we do this? While this is the return of the feminine, it does not mean that the masculine does not hold importance. It means that we must restore balance by allowing the feminine to lead. We must understand that women are going to rise up and be leaders more than ever. Our brothers are our allies and we will be compassionate teachers helping restore the feminine within them.
As women we make up more than half of the world’s population. We are the partners of men, we are the predominant caretakers of the children who are the creators of the future. We are holding the key to so much power.
Are you ready to accept this responsibility? Do you understand that how you care for and love yourself is a reflection of how you care for and love others as well as our mother earth? Are you ready to know that this is an inside job that will have external repercussions far beyond what you could even imagine? Next time you look in the mirror and you doubt your worth and power, remember that you are the one you have been waiting for. You are the answer to our prayer. The future lies in your heart and in your ability to love yourself first, and in turn, to love the rest of the world. To our brothers, we ask that you have courage to welcome and live the feminine within you, to let go of the fear that has gripped your mind for so long and become friends with your clever, powerful heart. Take all the strength that has made you persevere for so long and direct it inwards to fully acknowledge your feminine intuition which has been denied for so long.
We come back to the question, 2012: End of the world or the beginning of a heart centered humanity? Maybe this is the huge, evolutionary shift that is really happening as we speak. Will we women bring balance with all our innate feminine qualities of love, creativity, intuition, sensitivity, nurturing, connection and sensuality? Will we be compassionate teachers in the awakening of the feminine that lies within our brothers?. Will we stand up as leaders in the awakening of love and trust that the world will follow?
Imagine what our world would look like if the mind was in service to the heart.
So much love in this new age!
