With the wild-card finale of 2016, there are many questions about what 2017 has in store for us.
I’ve been compiling the spiritual download for this year, and waiting for the green light from the Universe to release this information, as in 2017 — brilliant timing is everything.
2016 wrapped up with a bang the concept of the Year of Reclamation — that which was always intended for us was coming. This including some tougher lessons in consciousness as well. I, along with many others, experienced this fascinating opportunity for growth, to evaluate in myself not only who I truly was and what I was willing to bring into the world — but how.
The “how” appears to be a large part of the lesson in Reclamation, and 2016 ended with a cliff-hanger game-changer that would initiate action plans and call to the surface who we are, as individuals.
My personal New Year’s resolution is reflective of that lesson. My commitment is to not engage in arguments with perspectives that I can’t begin to wrap my consciousness around, such as any bully or fear energy.
I won’t allow nastiness, smarminess, the down-playing of others and their beliefs, or just general unnecessary pithiness — in my world, or on my online pages.
This is my activism — standing in the gap for respect, courtesy and love, as the experiment of emotional chaos makes its way through our nation.
I am a #FirewallForLove.
This is not denial. This is facing, head-on, my chosen role in how to proceed in this Ascension process.
Fear and rage are not my language — they never have been — and they are not my way. It’s not my responsibility to learn these languages in order to make others feel more comfortable in their own rage and anger.
And it’s certainly not my responsibility to host ugliness in my life, or in this virtual ether, where all energy is shared.
No fear mongering active at this time is going to make a difference in how our country functions at the end of the day. Armchair quarterbacks, powerless in their own lives, loudly rooting on a bully Presidential administration via social media — have no bearing on actual national policy.
The government will remain slow-moving and the President will operate with restricted, tied hands like any President. He experiences frustration. The big machine is bigger than even the greatest projection of hubris. This collective dynamic is beyond any one human’s control.
In the meantime, those of us who are free to operate in unity actually get out there and brighten the world day-to-day, boots on the ground.
This administration is not a monarchy and we the people are not drones in a machine, though the sociopathic 20th-Century business model did its best to brainwash every one of we “widgets” into powerless positions within its framework.
Our great choice at this time is perception:
Do we believe that we are powerless, or do we choose to ignite our own possibility?
Both realities are ripe for the picking. Both have equal lessons. Both bring learning.
We who choose to operate under the energy of dignity bring in the energy of positive change not by engaging in fights or debates. Debates are for the undecided.
We bring beauty into the world by letting those who wish to fight distract themselves with others who understand the language of dissonance while the light shines on in real life, through our real actions, day to day.
We leave the illusion of hopelessness and fear to those who have chosen learning through this illusion, for there will be plenty of opportunities there.
And we send those who engage this well of limitation much compassion, not judgment — for the path of drowning in hopelessness is a terrifying and rough lesson to choose.
In 2017, we bring change by doing and being what is right, for each one of us — not engaging what is wrong for us on its energetic level, on its terms.
We who choose the perception of igniting our own possibility are one in a dominant energetic flow, not the minority — part of the many, the union of like hearts. We are a river of the collective language of love, the most effective language of all human design.
A river flows around obstacles, and keeps flowing. It doesn’t stop and argue with every stone, paranoid that its own rocky bed is intentionally attempting to change its direction.
The inertia of the gravity alone pulls the water down the mountain. And the water has faith in this gravity, embracing the rough edges of the stones within the river, polishing them smooth and acknowledging their role in providing shelter for fish who are worn-out by the current.
The water views the stones as part of the flow. The stones view the water as that which shapes them.
Are you the water, or are you the stone?
All have a purpose in this gravity, this inertia. And the truth remains that the inertia of this Ascension pulls us all.
How do we perceive the pull? How do we use it? That is the lesson of our times; this is what the angelic realm has been terming “The Great Healing”.
Many view this healing as the healing of a divide, or the healing of relationships with others — perhaps even a healing in our nation between polarized viewpoints. Indeed, these applications of healing are possible, yet truly, these angels speak of a time where we seek to heal ourselves first; heal ourselves of judgment, of fear, of faithlessness, of the illusion of being powerless. We seek to heal our hearts which have been sacrificed to the false gods of consumerism, commercialization, limitation consciousness through fear of lack, and avarice.
We seek understanding in who we truly are, to heal our own perception and projection of our outer identity — to match the glorious ingredients that shine within. We seek to understand that we are enough.
And that is enough.
To better understand our very design, a design we have been brainwashed to cast aside because this-or-that product will make us better — we are called to release our perception of control — to just flow, day to day, as the river.
Be who you are, unapologetically, at the core of your innocence, the nature of love, the craving for kindness paving your path. If there is pain in acknowledging your innocence, give this pain a safe space to grieve.
Perhaps your innocence has felt unsafe while being eclipsed by the projection of your “outer self” into the world. Perhaps your innocence has felt abandoned as you’ve attempted to adopt sardonic bitterness as a protection mechanism, disappointing the self before anyone else could.
Give your innocence room to be acknowledged, even embraced. Though harsh circumstances color our perception of how we fit into the world, the ingredients of our spiritual innocence remain the same. Psychology calls this modality our inner child. Spiritual Physics refers to the same phenomenon as the soul. And though we may experience pain in order to learn, the beautiful physics of our shining soul do not change beneath the weight of the lesson.
What does change is our belief that somehow, we have changed for the worst in our core design — rather than having simply learned atop a core design that is brilliantly unshakable because of the unyielding power of this innocence.
Our innocence attempts to fly its colors to remind us that its great strength is still residing within us, repeatedly hoisting the flag of hope above our ravaged terrain.
The outer person we’ve projected into the world then shoots down this flag, again and again, for fear of our innocence being discovered — and destroyed.
The truth remains that our innocence is incapable of being destroyed or eradicated, the proof lying in the recurring pain of disappointment that settles in when our innocence is challenged.
The owning of this inner authenticity, our own innocence, is the utmost show of perseverance. It is our most authentic baseline that always tells us the truth. It sees the world for what it is, not for what we design it to be within our minds, attempting to protect ourselves from the unexpected. Innocence views pain for what it is, anger for what it is. It tells us the real story, not the story as filtered through the ego, but the story as played out in real time where ego does not cast us as a central character in all actions around us.
The great lie shared by many is that the loss of innocence is necessary to become an adult, or to become discerning, or to become wise. In fact, spiritual physics discern the opposite; to disassociate from our persisting baseline of innocence is to lose our greatest gift of discernment, greatly necessary in the role of wise adulthood.
Implementing our innocence is not the same as being naive. Naivete is the result of a lack of education in any given circumstance. Innocence is the willingness to recognize the innocence in others in order to come to consensus based in love, rather than polarization of judgment.
There is only strength and wisdom in the latter.
Allowing our innocence to lead in consensus creates a tide that is bigger than we can measure; it is the inertia of Ascension, much greater than one ego being heard one opinion at time on Twitter or Facebook.
There will be those who are terrified to embrace their own innocence for fear of the pain of disappointment that is possible when innocence is given a platform to project hope. These souls will lash out at the idea of innocence being strength. They will feel threatened by the subconscious possibility of their own hope and will cling to the perceived safety of bitterness and fear — being the first to wound themselves so that others may not.
And this self-abuse too is a valid learning path.
As part of my New Year’s resolution, I release all to their given paths of learning; if fear calls to a person, I bless them in their choice of teachers. I recognize that in this Ascension, my role is not to convert to my own path those whose paths take them to exploring differing emotional and spiritual terrains.
My role in 2017 is simply to be. As is all of our roles. In this being, there is flow beyond our own authorship.
2017 is the Year of Actualization, the year in which we bring our gifts and talents to the forefront and kick them into high gear for the benefit of ourselves and others.
We are responsible for what we bring into the world. The world is not responsible for bringing us out of our own insecurities.
Many who are addicted to the surface-level rush of fear then don’t want to hear that 2017 will be a fabulous year on personal levels. Yet it will be, based upon the spiritual dynamics of the year alone.
The illusion of bully Presidential leadership will be shown for exactly what it is. This illusion cannot gain traction during this Ascension time frame, the age of the feminine. The inertia and flow of the river, the age of the grandmothers, is simply too great.
Those that gave away their power hoping that the bully world would finally bring them a voice and visibility will experience disillusionment when indeed — it does not net them their desire.
The lesson shall then be upon them to bring their voices forward individually in a way that represents their humanity, rather than their fears.
For those that require a polarizing savior in order for them to feel safe in the world — this time frame of disillusionment will be faith-shaking, terrifying.
This is the time to muster compassion, not “I-told-you-so’s.” The Great Healing is not about who is right, or righteous, but about who is willing to forgive themselves for past choices in order to forgive others for their past choices.
These frightened souls disillusioned by the loss of the bully savior will benefit, too, from relying on their inner innocence to overcome this disappointment. And those of us versed in fearlessly accessing our innocence will be helpful in demonstrating how to do so without giving away the idea of one’s “identity” — the crutch of the ego as we limp through the illusion of the outer world.
2017, the Year of Actualization, brings with it the lessons of spiritual physics and our role in directly affecting our physical environment, from riding-out the results of last-minute election choices to severe weather patterns that are not only associated with our climate changes, but also our consciousness.
We are one with the earth. As we experience dissonance, mother earth experiences dissonance.
Kali, the great destroyer, is present in many earth and Gaia modalities at this time, the time frame of the feminine. Yet that which cannot be destroyed, such as innocence, then rises to thrive.
The greatest human strength is given a solid platform on which to construct the future.
As our consciousness struggles to rid itself of fear, our atmosphere responds. Flooding peppers the Midwest through 2017-2018, affecting clean drinking water, food production, and the stability of deep-earth oil pipelines. Many who addict to the rush of fear will see this as the destroyer energy in play.
However, this is simply part of the flow; the rebirth energy, clearing away the old and ushering in the new with a fierce sense of unity, purpose, and like-vision.
Humanity is at its best when faced with unifying situations. It is then that we choose innocence in trusting one another to actualize our highest purpose.
2017 is the year to make it happen, whatever “it” may be for you. 2017 will be a powerful year to catapult many ahead in their highest paths and visions when the proper elbow grease is applied.
For those centered in their own innocence and purpose, it will be a fantastic year for personal expansions, dreams, team building, new modalities, revenue gains, community strengthening, and growth.
For those centered in the exercise of fear and restriction, it will be a frustrating year of being controlled time and time again by outside forces.
Both options are very real; 2017 asks us — who are you, really, without someone repressing you, representing you, or telling you who you should be?
And what world do you choose?
You decide. Not a third party, or a President, or a loved one, or a spouse or a boss or a child — or a savior.
The lesson present in 2017 is how to access, and execute, our greatest creative potential on a spiritually molecular level. Do we embrace the unlimited creative power of our innocence? Or do we blind ourselves to our potential, choosing fear as the teacher?
You decide. 2017 will say amen to whatever you choose.
For it is the Year of Actualization.
