That’s my invitation to you – awaken to the awakening shift! And that’s why I have created this blog – to provide support, information, and tools to help you do just that.
With the 2012 movie having just been released, lots of folks are beginning to wonder what the real truth is about 2012. I say it is a deep and profound awakening in our consciousness that is causing a shift in how we experience our world. I have coined the term “Awakening Shift” to describe this awakening movement in consciousness that is creating a shift in our lives.
So in this first post, I’ll give a couple of examples of how we are waking up. But first, I want to define what I mean when I say consciousness. I am referring to our level of awareness, how attuned we are to all that is unfolding in our world- externally and internally. If we look at world history, we can see that we have been a pretty numbed out. Certainly, aware beings would not do to each other and the Earth what we have done.
But now, our race is waking up. In fact, we are waking up so much that, I believe, we are evolving into a new species. Several scholars subscribe to this theory and have suggested names for the new “us”. Homo spiritus is the name given by David Hawkins, MD, Ph.D. to beings who are awake and vibrating at a high level according to a consciousness scale he has developed. Alberto Villoldo, anthropologist and shaman has labeled it homo luminous to indicate that we are becoming beings whose energy fields are luminous. And Barbara Hand Clow, Cherokee elder and writer, calls the new human homo pacem, to indicate we are becoming a species focused on peace.
Another sign that we are coming out of our stupor is we are waking up to the needs of the planet as shown by the huge “green movement” now afoot. We are saying, “Ah, we are all in this together. Either we all survive, or no one survives.”
I invite you to go one step farther…. beyond the Green Movement and begin to look at the Earth as a living, sentient being. This is known as the “Gaia Principle.” Many indigenous people refer to the Earth as our Mother, indicating that she is an alive being who provides us with our physical needs to sustain life. In South America she is referred to as Pachamama meaning Mother Earth.
What I am saying is that the earth is not just a big hunk of rock and dirt whirling around the Sun. It is alive and has an awareness and consciousness, one that our human minds may not be able to comprehend. Opens another can of worms, though. If the Earth is alive, so is Mars, Venus, Jupiter and all the other planets…and the sun and the stars! We live in a universe of alive sentient beings that are expressing as stars and galaxies. How mind stretching is that!
So in this first post, I want to introduce these two concepts. We are evolving into a new species and we live on an alive sentient being. I know this isn’t news to many of you, but for others these concepts may occur as way outside of your comfort zone. However, the only way to wake up is to stretch ourselves out of our old way of thinking. So, I invite you to visit my blog often and leave comments so I can know what other questions have arisen out of my posts.
These are two of what I call my foundation principles that I suggest you will need to embrace to be able to align with the new energies and flourish on our New Earth. I have written an article entitled Five Foundation Principles of the Awakening Shift to explain these five principles. You can access it under articles.
