Enjoy this article from my friend Mona called Ascension in the Physical.
In the last few years, talk on 2012 has reached most every ear on Earth… and it was brought about in people’s consciousness in many ways, by fear. Just like good ol’ horror movies and News broadcasts, ( well, not necessarily in that order! ) the attraction to a story, or a plot, will sometimes come with suspense. This intrigues the human mind because it just doesn’t seem real, but the mind is looking for excitement. When we play a board game, we seldom get “board” because we are waiting to see who wins… it’s the thrill of getting to the end with a “good feeling” of accomplishment. Ultimately, the mind wants more.
So when we hear that 2012 is just around the corner and begin to see these changes come to life, it suddenly becomes reality, and there’s no running from it. In the movie theater, we can close our eyes, walk out to the bathroom, or just tell ourselves this is a dumb movie and that’s all! In REAL life, there is no closing our eyes, no walking out, and no turning back. As mentioned in the movie Star Trek, “resistance is futile.”
These changes that are happening seem like a bad dream to some, yet, as all experiences have a silver lining, this one is huge. 2012 comes with the words, “Enlightenment, perception, depth, discovery, shifting, waking up, and even TRUTH.” It feels like we are in a new world, and we are. Walking on coals to get to the other side comes to mind for some, but I prefer to call 2011 The Year of the Butterfly. It means most people who have unconsciously been consumed by a made up world of material goods, money, Keeping Up with the Jonses syndrome, etc, are finding out that those that are in the world AND of it are collapsing. None of that matters realistically, and even though fear sets in, it is bypassed eventually because the true self inside says, “Well, I’m not the only one going through this” and then we seem to find solace in friends, family, acquaintances, animals, music, etc.( and even our social network, Facebook!) The saying, “This too shall pass” happens, and a stronger, more adequate way of living then begins to unfold.
This is the cocoon stage, and soon we realize we really are tired of trying to keep up. A world that has created its own way of control is now falling to the wayside while those who want freedom are opening their eyes. In the movie Avatar, the Shaman mother tells Jake Sully when he enquires about learning from her tribe, ”It’s hard to fill a cup that’s already full.” Learning can only come to us when we have emptied the bucket and are ready to receive.
So now we have reached the stage when the butterfly is ready to emerge. This is the time of ascension. You hear this word a lot in the community of people who are waking up and becoming more apt to decide what side they want to be on. As we have seen, death has been a co-partner in all of this. So many loved ones are passing…yet we even have a different concept, idea, understanding, but mostly, a feeling of death being different than before! Somehow we know that death isn’t final, just different in the world. Ascension is seen as us passing over. Well, that’s one way! In this cycle that has been turning around in our Universe through astrological aspects, authors, media reports, and daily awareness, the good news is that Deepak Chopra was right all along!! If we are truly one body in the air that we breathe, and our cells are multi-faceted with shedding themselves and beginning new every 6 weeks for a new liver, etc, then we are already ascendended, having a physical experience. Now, all we have to do is know it. I would like people to know that we all don’t have to be scientists or cellular biologists. There are plenty of good ones already who like sharing their knowledge with the rest of us. We are living in a world of “wake up”, and that means we are ALL transforming, so choosing to surrender feeling sorry for ourselves and find that silver lining will adhere to the energy in our cells that we were born for… our soul song is ready to emerge. We are now ONE with all that is, and that’s all there is!
We live in amazing times. We all chose to be here, or not. Either way, life will continue and 2012 will prove to be everything that we had, down deep, truly hoped for. Some call this the “Second coming of Christ” because of the Christ-oriented consciousness occurring through our compassionate hearts. Our lessons continue to improve us and refine us back to who we are. This means, yes Virginia, we are all getting younger if we just accept that life is on our side!!
Let’s appreciate each other and be grateful that each person is meant to be in our lives as we mirror our existence in a world that is finally ready to exhale!! Love, light, enlightenment, and all those other wonderful expressions of peace to you and yours ~ Mona*
