Wisdom of the Times:
Preparing for 2012 and Beyond
How do we prepare for 2012?
What is it about?
What can I do?
There is so much being spoken about these times, and how to transpire, or move through them. What is occurring?
Fundamentally, we are living in a time in which the Earth and its environment are reaching into a higher vibrational state, or, field of being.Because we have been focusing on our lower vibrational states, many of us are experiencing a 'dance' of chaos and stress in our lives.It is the steps to integration of the realities which causes the stress, fundamentally, between two different worlds, or ways of being. They are two converging worlds. And, as we learn the nature of the two, and learn to find a harmonic resonance to sustain within our own field, we shall make a safe transition into this higher vibrational state the Earth, and the Cosmos, are guiding us into. It is, after all, our inherent nature, we are being asked to touch more completely into.
Most of us have been taught to hold our awareness in lower vibrational fields, of what too often is fear based means of survival, of not having enough, or believing we are not good enough, or not deserving of enough, or something better, in our lives; of getting what we want in the realms of personal love and power through manipulation or control, rather than harmony, communion or communication, and collaboration, and, of searching, overall, for fulfillment in the physical planes of our existence, ignoring, for the most part, the greater nature of our being.We are being asked to focus more distinctly and fully on our greater nature.
Many believe this is just a New Age propaganda. But science and ancient wisdom both support this new reality. Science is constantly reporting phenomena it does not understand. Just 2 weeks ago, science reported an incredible Gamma Wave field extending out from the center of our Milky Way galaxy some 50,000 Light Years on each side of it. They have been reporting intense bursts of unexplained Gamma Wave radiation from the center of the galaxy for some time, unusual phenomena of solar photon activity, of extraordinary changes in the Earth's magnetic field, and the Schumann pulse, or frequency of the Earth. These are all scientific realities that simple searches on any web search engine will pull up dozens of scientifically based results, at NASA, and similar sites. Science suggests interpretations of these very odd phenomena, but, in general, they themselves state that they do not understand what they are witnessing, just reporting the phenomena.Meantime, the indigenous elders of many cultures of the planet report ancient prophecies that these signs are only fulfilling. We have been talking much about this in our Three Hearts series of articles throughout the year.
The stage we are in now, is somewhat of the 'beta' test phase. We are being asked to elevate our awareness through gratitude, joy, ecstasy or bliss, unconditional love and appreciation, and all the great cycles of 'coherent' energy or emotions of the human spectrum, to create sustainable states of grace in harmony with the fundamental nature of life.
We have been misled.
All life resonates in fundamental harmony with itself. There is a fundamental nature, a principal, or Law, which guides and directs All Life in sequence and resonance with itself. Fundamentally, all wisdom based cultures of the planet speak to this fundamental resonance, or truth, within the confines of their own way of interpreting the greater truth, or reality. When we step into this resonance, we feel the Beauty, the Joy, the Awe-felt Grace and Unity of Life.We have, most of us, been taught more of the opposite. There are perhaps some special beings who experience this, but, here, on the Earth, it is a hard and difficult life.
It is not so.We are in a time that is asking us to invest our awareness in this fundamental question.Do you believe in the Beauty and Harmony of All Life, or do you feel separate from the Greater Reality, not part of, not supported by All Life?The fundamental reality is, once you recognize the question, and once you consciously choose where and what you want to focus your reality in, that is what you will perceive as Reality. The reality is, this is what is occurring already, you just may not yet be conscious of it.
By focusing your awareness on the Greater Reality, of Joy, Beauty, Oneness, this is what you will overwhelmingly perceive, and experience. If you focus on the tragedy, destruction, and trauma of our lives and the Earth, this will be the guiding principles of your life, that will bring into sharp focus this reality as you perceive and experience it on the planet.
It is not to deny one or the other, but to learn and pay attention to the nature of how we create our own reality.
Many are feeling times of extraordinary chaos, stress, disharmony, or anxiety in their lives. Do not feel alone in this. Many are feeling it. While some explain it away in terms of modern technology taking away all our free time, or adding to the stress, and, while, there is some truth to this, do not be misled yet further down the road of disempowerment.
There is something greater happening.
It is beyond the scope of normal human understanding. It is beneficial to realize there is something far greater than just our selves, that is occurring. There is a planetary shift occurring. It is a highly prophesied time of planetary awakening.
At the same time, we each are being asked to do our part.
And, there is much we can do about it.Our articles and newsletters have been full of such methodologies, to enter greater awareness, abundance, and harmony with life.We have spoken about the practices arising from the wisdom of the Three Hearts relating to entering this harmonic field of experience, of the Giving and Taking in Harmony with All Life, and even offered a recorded interview with the full Three Hearts Practice for you to participate in it.
We have spoken about (in our articles) how to connect with the holy beings, Guides and Teachers, who often surround us, in the subtle worlds, and seek to assist in our full awakening, to reach our full potential as spiritual beings. Many have been awakened in the "magic window" hours of 2-4 in the AM, being asked, knowingly, or unknowingly, to make these connections.Now, many are reporting later morning awakenings, 4-6 AM, (yet earlier than their usual morning awakening times,) unable to make their usual connections to their guides and teachers.For those of you experiencing this, I would offer these suggestions.Imagine you are being asked to more fully activate your own potential.
The guidance seems, often to suggest, it simply is time to do this for one self (and, often, 'not depend on 'us' (the guides we each may have been working with,) any longer.)
There is also an aspect of solar wisdom, knowledge, or 'being' which is being activated.
Practices to OfferSo, knowing this, I suggest working with these principals for further personal activation:1) Simply place awareness in the heart center (chakra).Hold awareness of a coherent emotion such as gratitude, joy, appreciation, unconditional love, bliss, in the heart.Focus all of your awareness, to your fullest potential, in this practice, breathing in and out from a realized sense of this coherent emotion, building awareness of this clear emotional state with each breath, as if breathing in and out from the heart center.
Do not be concerned if other thoughts or feelings arise to distract you.Acknowledge them, but do not give in to them.
Simply come back to the practice.If you find yourself distracted, don't worry, and don't go into self-judgment or doubt, just come back to the practice.
Continue the practice, no matter how much distraction you may experience.
2) Do #1) above, but imagine the sun, or a solar disc, primarily above and in front of you, specifically from the heart region, and breathe in and out from this area of heightened solar consciousness.
For some of you, it may be beneficial to explore the regions behind and above the heart, or even behind the neck to breathe through. Imagine you are connecting to high, pure realms of light energy or consciousness.
Continue the practice of breathing in and out from the heart into these realms of light consciousness, until you feel you are truly embodying this solar aspect of consciousness. You may experience it entering into, entering union with, your heart. You may experience it, also, permeating out of your heart throughout your full field of awareness, your vital organs, tissue, and so forth. Imagine it permeates with a light of empowerment, authenticity, healing, and integrity, integrating these greater aspects of your awareness.
3) Imagine you are entering ever heightened levels of joy, bliss, love, purity, grace, etc., as you breathe in this manner.
4) Imagine you are breathing ever higher, rarified aspects of solar consciousness, the aspect of the activating and transforming power of Light from the higher dimensional realms, which our 'sun' symbolizes, and embodies, in our localized region of the galaxy, and Cosmos.Imagine this is activating ever heightened states of your own awareness and being. Again, embody this. Emanate it out from the heart, as if the heart were the source point of this intelligence.
5) Imagine there is intelligence and/or intelligent communication occurring between you and this solar aspect of consciousness.Seek, through your own awareness, to embody this.
Practice this daily for at lease one week of times you awaken early, whether that is daily for a week, or alternately over the course of days or weeks as you find yourself awakening early.You can, certainly, use it anytime regardless. It can only be of greater benefit for you.At some point, you may find there are specific messages embedded in this solar consciousness, for your well being. You may simply imagine it bringing greater vitality and vigor to your physiology greater clarity and illumination to your emotional body, greater integration at all levels of your soul body.
The Indigenous Wisdom is that the sun has morning messages for us, and that these often traverse through the light consciousness of the sun, especially at dawn, with dusk being another time for entering heightened awareness of the subtle worlds.Many indigenous cultures have specific practices such as these, for receiving the vitality and wisdom of the sun, a localized aspect of Divine Male Consciousness, just as the Earth, and Heart of the Galaxy are localized aspects of the Feminine Wisdom.Come to our Three Hearts and Crown of Creation practices to learn more about this interrelationship of the Three Hearts, the Heart of the Sun, and the "Heart behind the Heart", of the Cosmos, as given through the wisdom of the Elders, and the many guides and teachers of the subtle worlds, the ancestral realms, and the Star Nations, who guide and sustain this work.Many blessings in all that you do.

The science and much more of all of the above work will be shared in far greater depth with those who participate in the practices. The practices are outlined in our Class Lists, with much general information in our The Three Hearts Pages. The Three Hearts will be the foundation practices for this wisdom. The Crown of Creation and Diamond Light practices will carry this work into this next level of evolution of this wisdom, and practices.
We look forward to seeing you!
