If November wasn't enough to make you wonder what is happening to your life and to the world, it isn't time to get too comfortable yet because December brings us another round of energy for completion, release and closure. Whenever a month opens with an active Mercury retrograde, between an eclipse sandwich, with a Solstice, we can expect big things. Notice I said 'big' things, not 'good' or 'happy' or 'easy' things.
We have been in a heavy retrograde period since January 23 and it has impacted every aspect of our lives. Whether it’s a project, relationship, life decision, or outcome that was would not move, no matter how important it was or how hard we tried, this period has brought much of our lives to a standstill. Like a breath of fresh air, energy that has been stuck for weeks has begun to move again and now we can start taking action.
You can learn about enlightenment from many teachers, each of whom may have experienced some form of enlightenment and want to share it with others. Their motives are good and there are people that they will help along this path. But others will not see the results that they expect and will feel that they have missed something or worse, are not capable of enlightenment. There are many paths of enlightenment, many levels and each of you is on a different course. There is no single definition of enlightenment and no single experience of it. And you can have many experiences of enlightenment every day.
Are you ready to make your dreams a reality? You know that it is all an illusion, in fact all of life is an illusion that is nothing more than an energetic manifestation at a specific vibration. There is nothing in the third dimension that is real, except your perception of it. There is nothing in the third dimension that is permanent, unless you hold an energetic space for the continued manifestation of that reality. Hope for a better future is the starting point that must be followed by activation of this as a new paradigm for the next moment.
11-11-11 was a special day whose significance extends beyond its unique date. It was special because the entire world shared in the hope, blessings and meaning of this day. Around the world people shared conversations that focused on enlightenment, possibilities and potential. But the world didn't end (it wasn't supposed to) and we continue with our life journey. Now that 11-11-11 has come and gone, we must focus on carrying the energy's momentum into the days following it.
As I write this I cannot believe that it is already September and this year is nearly over. Some of us are looking with some degree of anxiety at next year, wondering what is going to happen in 2012. Is the earth going to end? Will all of our social and economic systems fail? Will we be annihilated through cataclysmic earth changes? Don't let the fear of what could happen be the dominant theme in your life for the next four months because we do have the ability to shift anything, including the potential for 2012. And in September we begin to step forward and integration is this month's theme.
