Here is a question I received this morning on my email. It seemed so relevant that I thought I would post my answer.
“I was hoping I would be in Nirvana today. Nothing happened here today. Was there anything going on where you live? I felt frustrated and let down I was looking forward to feeling differently and very excited. Can you shed any light on what didn’t Happen today Shanta?”
My experience on Monday, December 12, was that lots happened for me. I listened to my own 12:12 meditation twice, and felt moved deeply each time. I did not have a big expectation about the day, although I knew it would be a turning point for our lives. My understanding of the experience is that it is a process that began at the 12:12 and will continue through all next year until 12:12:12.
I have a long history of feeling let down. I have attended many spiritual events and workshops that promised to change my life. I would get very excited, only to feel a letdown and disappointment after each one was over. One of the things that I have seen with my having big expectations is that I will always feel disappointed. Yet over time, it is very obvious that all those events have brought a profound change to my life. And much of what I was taught needed to be brought into a daily practice that allowed me to continue the process in purposeful action.
The prayers I have said and the intentions I brought to my life have also set a course that has allowed a beautiful unfolding, as well as many bumpy times over the years. I can be 66 years old now and look to see how everything that I experienced has been important for my highest soul’s growth in this lifetime. What I have also learned is that it is moving much faster now than ever before!
Archangel Gabriel has been beneficial in my understanding by helping me to calm my emotions so I can be more receptive to the flow of good from Source energy. Receptivity is so essential, and the best way to do that is to take time to find my center and breathe. By being as peaceful as I can, it ALLOWS the energy to work in my life in the most beneficial way.
We are in the process of evolution and the ascension means we are taking our bodies with us. As the physical is the grossest level of manifestation, it takes the longest time. We magnetize to us that which is in our consciousness. When we believe that all is in Divine Order, we are calmly receptive and allow the energy to transform. We begin to see the subtle changes occurring around us in miraculous ways.
It also means paying attention each day to our thoughts and attitudes and bringing Divine Light through us into the Earth. I feel that it is important to be connecting to as much Divine Love in our hearts as we can and radiate this love into the world to change ourselves as well as the consciousness of the Earth. It is called a “Spiritual Practice.”
These times in which we are living are asking us to use all of our spiritual tools to live lives with heart-centered awareness. As important as it is to have peaceful alone time, often it is important to interact with others in order to feel supported in this process of growth. There are millions of people now that are working to bring more light to the planet and be more loving, responsible humans.
When I have an experience of talking with another person who is going through a similar situation or is having fears and symptoms similar to mine, it allows me to lighten up. I can gain a much more expanded perspective when I am not taking it all personally. Working with others helps us all to feel loved and supported in the new energy on earth.
One of my favorite affirmations in life has been, “I now allow others to love and support me.” Try saying that 21 times a day for 21 days, and see what changes in your life.
Although I believe in Spontaneous Evolution and the Hundredth Monkey Affect, it has not happened as quickly as I had hoped …. YET! But the process is working very well and it is in Divine Timing.
Before I received that question this morning, it seems synchronous that I pulled a card from The Gabriel Messages that said: “Without Patience you will never understand the meaning of Divine Timing.” There is a post on this site that expands on that message, if you would like to see it. Click here.
As a friend of mine says of this time, All is well, all shall be well and all is as it should be in Divine Perfection.
Many blessings to you, Shanta
