A new more balanced cycle is underway in 2013. The spiritual vibration level of the planet is rising, and that brings with it many benefits, as based on the spiritual principle of “Oneness of All.” There is brightness, joy, and growing harmony among all living things.
It is a time to graciously honor one’s soul and unconditionally trust the connection to Source within. More than in previous new years’, 2013 embodies hope of a fresh start and the bliss of everything good:
“Another fresh new year is here … Another year to live! To banish every doubt and fear, To live and laugh and give!” (- William Arthur Ward)
Celebrate the Optimism. This awakening and opening at Winter Solstice 2012 to soul’s purpose has been called, “The Great Shift of Human Consciousness.” Accordingly, our “new today” has requirements, such as the following suggestions in the January newsletter, as shared by A Haven For Angels:
- Positive intent in all that we think, do, and create.
- Release fear of change.
- Envision peace to any and all places in the world where there is unrest, upheavals, and fighting.
- Understand that any institution that does not operate with integrity and respect for others will fail.
- Look for new means of creating electricity, cleansing of water, and the air, as well as new methods of creating nourishing food.
Our New Today? Change - the term is an understatement from 2013 forward! On a larger scale, it will be about faster and more comprehensive communication and technology. It is about merging east and west practices through the blending of meditation and other forms of energy healing. The spiritual aspect of holistic wellness can be an enormous curative facilitator across all three levels of the human body. On a personal scale, it is about the gift of time … to let the ideas and inspiration come, so that the essence of individuality and care resonates with what is nurtured, and then effortlessly delivered to others.
The work of healing in the new year is about coming back to wholeness. It is a space independent of past and future. As Eckart Tolle said, “You cannot find yourself by going into the past. You find yourself by coming into the present.” The shift in consciousness speaks directly to long-in-use experiential and team-based learning outcomes. When used, this type of learning encourages openness and sharing, with an end result of compassion for others and deep sense of autonomy:
- It is the empathy and self-awareness that leads to understanding about how worldview is filtered. It is about teaching by simply being ones’ True self.
- It is not about a resolution, it is about courage, spiritual practice, prayer, and pure intellect leading to inner fulfillment and perfection of daily life.
Soothing Continuity. This is a new year, a new start, so it is important to have awareness of what is chosen to be created – for oneself, humankind, the earth, and all kind:
“In gratitude and love for this divinely beautiful, glowing moment and in life expressing the Creators love of everything.” (-Soluntra King)
It is an intriguing time for humanity; all on earth agreed to be a part of the shift. There is a blending of artistry with practicality that continuously flows into a deepening study of “Who Am I; Why Am I Here?” Past the stillness of meditation, its energy soothingly flows until finding what lies within a soul. It is like a lovingly wrapped gift, cherished for its outer beauty, yet the finishing touch that makes it special; it is found inside.
In a recent edition of The Monthly Aspectarian, Alan Cohen said it best, “Trust your heart.” Everyone has a bankable talent, and a life’s purpose. On the spiritual level, it is to discover your high Self and truest value. Form of expression in this world is two-fold: Service to others, while fulfilling one’s goals. Talents are only valuable, when the blessing is put into use. This is a perfect time to take stock of one’s talents, and here are a few clues:
- What comes easily and naturally?
- What would you do, even if not being paid for it?
- What work do others compliment?
A key point: These types of profound questions have been asked by nearly every religion in history. For example: Hindu philosophies believe that the soul (true Self) is eternal and that spiritual development occurs across many lifetimes. According to the Mayan shamans, a soul’s life mission is known prior to incarnation. The common thread: One is here for some type of growth and to serve in some way. Each soul’s unique talent is the point of life!
A Dusty Mirror? There is no ego-related dust when gazing inward with the intuitive awareness. The daily practice is to be ever mindful of high Self. Often termed a master consciousness, this sacred intention to evolve creates, directs, and produces a spiritual life, reflected as a living practice. When life is lived within awareness, the constant change is balanced by a trusted inner knowing of peacefulness and stability, regardless of outer circumstances.
Truth is Simple ~ “In the spiritual life one becomes just like a little child—without resentment, without attachment, full of life and joy.” (- Paramahansa Yogananda)
New Year’s Meditation: The spiritual path includes openness to receiving messages from spirit, asking for guidance and listening for responses from God/Creator and Divinity’s helpers. Within a sincere practice that includes meditation/prayer, the signs and messages will begin to show themselves. If only one mantra is learned in this lifetime, let it be AUM, as it represents the supreme goal of a soul’s evolution:
- “Face east or north. Sit tall on the floor or a chair, with the back of the neck in line with the spine. Inhale and exhaling, create a long, loud resonant Aum."
- "The mouth is wide open during the A, in the shape of an “O” during the U, with the lips coming together for the M (Note: The M should last for at least one-third of the Aum)."
- "Remain silent and do an internal Aum, while focusing on the vibration between the eyebrows, behind the forehead."
- "Repeat – a verbal Aum, followed by a silent Aum. Keep repeating the meditation for 10 minutes, or as long as it is comfortable to do so.” (- Sri Dharma Mittra)
