  • My 2012 Predictions: Doomsday or New Day? * Wicca-Spirituality.com
    of the world or being upgraded for years now However I am not ruling out the possibility of a massive instantaneous transition either There may well be such a transformation in addition to the long preparatory process we ve been going through Again I can t trust my objectivity on this matter I hope there is a massive transformation I believe there s a very good chance of it But I won t promise it In either event the best thing we can possibly do is to keep doing our personal and spiritual work participating in the transformation already going on My End of the World Predictions I d like to share something with you before we go on so you ll understand the context and how surprising this 2012 prediction is This is how I came to realise what will happen in 2012 In the late 1980 s I began to sense that something was coming I felt it almost like a sense of doom There arose in me the absolute knowing that the world was not going to continue the way it was going that everything we relied upon as real and reliable was in fact going to vanish like sandcastles in the tide I called it in my own mind the end of the world Now this is at least 10 years before I d ever heard of peak oil climate change etc I d never heard of 2012 or any predictions I could just feel it as a knowing within myself I could see the end of our lifestyle looming Keep in mind too that this was the 80 s It was a time of extreme confidence in the economy capitalism and the future The Cold War was ending the Berlin Wall fell Environmentalism was a snigger on the far fringes of society barely imagined in the redneck province I was living in Personal computers were just becoming popular with the early adopters There were some tragedies of course the Challenger disaster Chernobyl Tiananmen Square the Bhopal gas leak but generally the mood of the 80 s at least where I was living was we can have and do whatever we want the future is boundless So it shocked me to find inside myself a powerful conviction that it was all ending I wasn t even sure that humanity itself was going to continue past that unidentified point in time Preparations For The Apocalypse I began to prepare myself and my home for the end of reliance on an infrastructure that I believed was going to collapse In case we survived it better to be prepared and not need it etc When I remarried after a time I confessed my feelings and plan to my spouse And since then we ve worked together to prepare for the new way of life I expected to come after the end of the world It helps that she loves the self sufficient lifestyle Here s the important bit Something

  • Reinventing Power in 2012 * Wicca-Spirituality.com
    called Grassroots Change We re investing our chips our time energy passion and commitment to small local level projects both at home and out in the world We re changing how we see things and how we do things And we re finding that the people are immensely powerful And we re influencing the entire world along the way The Dynamics of the Food Supply Food security is a great example As agribusiness and GMOs are busy killing our food sources one by one people are deciding to take more responsibility for their own and their communities food supply People are once again growing their own food even in the cities Window farming rooftop gardens and urban chickens are growing phenomena More and more people are supporting local organic farmers with food box delivery programs and buying more local organic foods They are starting community food sources like fruit and nut trees along roadways and communal potato gardens They are finding ways to share the surplus around They are step by step reducing their dependence on the systems that would kill us What this really means is that we are taking our power back into our own hands even while the authorities are attempting to take it away from us But empowerment can t be stolen away Thank goodness Taking Back Our Power and Our Planet That s where it comes from the control that governments and corporations wield We give them ours When we take it back we change the balance of power We change the world Looking for salvation from institutions is futile Even most of the charitable ones are contaminated by the drive for money and the addition to the quick fix Look at the cancer charities busily recruiting donations to find a pharmaceutical read expensive profitable cure while burying or banning the natural cures that already exist and overlooking the systematic abuse of the environment and the violence of the culture that causes cancers to proliferate I am all for healing and preventing cancer believe me but I can t support the cancer institutions in their unstated goal Even most well meaning organizations taking relief supplies to distant countries often end up making things worse in the long run Only recently have we learnt to help people help themselves instead of imposing our solutions on them We have given not only our authority but our morality to the hands of people who have no idea how to nor desire to use it in a beneficial way Ethics can t be legislated or enforced It must come from within each member of a society Not a bigoted religious morality but fundamental kindness and compassion And this brings us to the real source of hope The power to transform the world is within our own hands The Leverage of the Dollar Here s another means of changing the power dynamic of the world Consider this The reason that good people in the world have little power is because

  • Being a Co-Creator of Reality -- Surviving 2012 pt 2 * Wicca-Spirituality.com
    your intention and your faith Humans are incredibly limited in every way but mind We don t have the sensory acuity of animals and we have to shut down our consciousness for a third of every day We don t have speed to outrun dangers or defenses to protect ourselves the human body isn t built to tolerate even minor swings in heat cold wet dry or other adverse conditions We think we re superior to other animals because of our intellect but it could as easily be said we feel inferior except for our intellect and we re overcompensating But it does hold this truth our minds are our power The realm of thought is where the true human potential resides Refined Thought VS Brain Reflexes In another article I show how the intellect s time of sovereignty is over So what does it mean to say that our minds are our power Well it s not as paradoxical as it sounds There are many different levels of mind for example the primal animal instinct that aims to keep us alive and procreating the logical rational intellect the body s intelligence the subconscious beliefs and feelings that influence our choices without our awareness the intuitive wisdom But there s another level beneath above and beyond all of these And that is Cosmic Mind It s hard to talk about these clearly because from a 3 dimensional perspective it can t exist Our brains themselves are not wired to be able to understand this and so we don t not completely Here s what we do know The brain is a tool of consciousness another word for mind It can be used in rough ways like opening a jar lid with a chisel And it can be used in refined ways like using the chisel to sculpt the Venus de Milo The rough way is to let the ego run the brain with the lower levels of consciousness animal instinct and subconscious urges The refined way is to access Divine Wisdom or Cosmic Consciousness The rough way makes you a slave to your ego disrupts the joy of life and inspires victimhood The refined way sets you free and empowers you to be a joyful co creator of life The Reality of Thought Your mind is the gateway to reality the reality that is and the reality that you want to be Here s how it works Your thoughts and emotions create your internal reality Your internal reality creates the external reality As within so without That s the real secret of all manifestation and magick create the energy within yourself of a reality you desire and reality will maneuver itself in unimaginable ways to accommodate you Turn away from judgement Dismiss worry Set aside anger That in itself will allow you to begin creating a positive future This is a subject big enough for many books and I m not going to go into this more than I already

  • Surviving 2012 (3) -- Intuition: the Power of the Heart * Wicca-Spirituality.com
    understand the quiet Voice of your intuition takes practice It s a little like developing an ear for music at first you re not really sure what to listen for or what a good one is like With practice you learn to hear more clearly Really you can only learn by doing Follow your intuition Start with little things Don t use your intuition the very first time to decide to move across the country or adopt a child or something Because in the beginning it s trial and error Sometimes you will hear your intuition precisely But sometimes you may not But begin paying attention to it Your intuition knows more than you think There have been studies on women who ve been attacked on the street and every time it seems something inside of them was warning them but they ignored the warning because it seemed impolite to just walk away or whatever And if you ve heard stories about people who survive cataclysmic events they usually say they just had a feeling and they followed it Your inner Voice knows infinitely more than your logical brain ever could As we proceed with the 2012 Transition it s really time to access this source of infinite knowledge The Other Voice The biggest difficulty is that we also have another voice inside of us the voice of the personality ego and it definitely has its own agenda Learning to differentiate between these is the real key to accessing intuition When you first begin trusting your intuitive guidance you may find that it seems to lead you astray at times What s really happened of course is that your ego has tricked you into thinking it was Divine guidance Nothing is as tricky as the ego There s also an element of deep trust that is needed though Sometimes even the best intuition will lead you into an unpleasant situation But I can guarantee it s because that unpleasant situation will turn into something you really needed Clearing The Table The biggest block to accessing intuitive guidance is a cluttered mind When there are a lot of thoughts worries plans grudges desires etc taking up space how could you even notice when the Divine quietly offers a bit of advice Clear your thoughts and quiet your mind Clear your emotions Only when your mind is empty of the ego s thoughts and drives can you clearly hear the Divine s advice and be sure of it Then your intuition will seem much more obvious and it will not lead you astray Meditation is a perfect practice for this That s why intuitive ideas so often pop up when you are meditating A Mind Watch or Purging Papers as well are wonderful for clearing the mind and emotions Reflection spiritual journalling and working with symbolisms like in dreams and with Animal Spirit Guides are also extremely beneficial These are available in A Natural Connection Discover Your Animal Spirit Guides and the

  • Integrity: Being Whole --Surviving 2012 (4) * Wicca-Spirituality.com
    first part of the program is to aim for ever better expression of wholeness as in the list above The second part is to practice remembering your true perfection even though on an earthly level you are imperfect Aligned With Reality Integrity also means being aligned with reality FYI this is also called sanity What is reality Reality has been very wisely defined as That which never changes Anything that changes can t be real on a foundational level Is a flower ultimately real when it is a seed one day a bud the next and a withered stock in the end Which expression of flower is real Yes we re talking here about ultimate reality And in ultimate reality only a few things or perhaps one are real You could call them God and Goddess the implicate and explicate orders information and energy consciousness and intention desire etc No matter how we say it no matter how we imagine it in our minds we are talking about Source I generally call this The Divine It doesn t mean necessarily that the Divine is a super being who is worried about what humans are up to It means to me that which is beyond all the limitations of material existence and which is the source the wellspring of everything in material existence And that is the ultimate in reality Increasing Alignment With Reality Increasing your alignment with ultimate or deep reality is a process of remembering Specifically Remembering to Remember Swami Sivananda the guru of one of my teachers used to say that people aren t bad they re just forgetful They forget to remember what s true what s real what s important They forget to remember Who they are They forget to remember the Divine So the last part of the program for increasing integrity is to remember to remember How do you do that There are infinite ways Here are some that seem to work best Meditate Do spiritual practices like reflection mandalas dream work divination and dialogue with the Divine Meditate Put up inspirational notes cards and pictures around the house and office Meditate Take Sabbaths spiritual retreats personal growth seminars etc Meditate Pull angel cards heart cards medicine cards and other simple yet profound reminders every day Meditate Wear sacred jewelry as spiritual cues Meditate Set your watch to beep every hour and use that as a time to take a deep breath of the Prana life force around you and remember Meditate Okay you may have noticed a common theme Regular meditation is bar none the best way to learn to remember your divinity Every day as you meditate you enter into Ultimate Reality After a while it rubs off You begin to see the Reality behind the veil of ordinary life Integrity and Religion Allow me to take a moment to describe how this increasing integrity works in a common institution religion The 2012 Transition includes a transition from religions to spirituality This

  • Self-Care -- Surviving 2012 (pt 6) -- Self-Care * Wicca-Spirituality.com
    The point is to just put some self caring practices into each day Not all Just as many as you can without overburdening yourself Trying to do too much is contrary to good self care It s not self loving or self nurturing to put a lot of pressure on yourself Avoid blaming or judging yourself about all this Rather approach the practice of self care as much as you can in a spirit of self love Warning Beware Your Self Self care is something we hear about all our lives And still it s a challenge to maintain It may help to be aware that part of the resistance to self nurturing comes from the ego which doesn t WANT you to be too happy or comfortable let alone to access higher levels of consciousness That would push the ego out of the Captain s chair Nothing is more slippery more sly more believable than the ego After all it s the voice inside you that seems like you If you can t believe yourself who can you trust Well the ego is not very trustworthy It will undermine all your best intentions if you re not careful Beware the ego s sneaky resistance which tells you things like I don t really need to do this This is silly There s too much to do I don t have time for all this Oh I m coping just fine thanks other people probably need this but not me There s nothing wrong just get on with things I can t afford it I did that already Yesterday Or was it last week Anyway I did that enough Oh the kids need me and that s more important But what I really need is to just rest I ll turn on the TV that s taking good care of myself It s honouring my need for rest and fun In fact TV and computer both drain energy rather than replenish it but since they act on the brain like a drug it s hard to notice that Healing And Growth With An Ego So how do you work around this sneaky ego Recognise the ego as the source of these self defeating statements Then treat your ego as if it were a stubborn frightened child with firmness and reassurance After all the ego is very much part of the inner child It may sound silly but it can be extremely effective to actually speak to your ego just as if it were a 3 year old Hug yourself at the same time as if to hug your loveable inner child Here s an example of what you could say You really don t want to do this do you I understand that If I were you I probably wouldn t want to either But you know why it s important to do it anyway Because then we ll feel better We really will We ll be happier and healthier
