Update 12/23/2012: Earth has now crossed the galactic plane.
Some people say “nothing happened.” Maybe that’s true for them. As the Zen monks have said, “Before enlightenment, chop wood and carry water; after enlightenment, chop wood and carry water.” (In other words, before and after our perception has shifted, even if we become enlightened, we still care for our bodies, we still have chores. Enlightenment is in our consciousness, not somewhere “out there”.)
Alright. Get a little bit deeper into the channel’s body here. Alright. Good.
What I want to talk about this week is “Where Are We Now?”
We have 12-12-12 approaching which is sort of a crystalline activation or Christ Consciousness activation. Pardon. A little bit of disruption nearby here.
Let’s focus on where we are as Humanity and what’s next. We’re poised at a point when the dark side of Humanity is being flushed out for the purpose of transforming it although some very clearly are allowing their dark side to have all of the power.
So as a lightworker the goal is recognize it, change it. Or recognize it, dissolve it and replace it with a positive outlook or positive action. Especially watch being dark to yourself, as in putting yourself down or sabotaging yourself in some way.
“Happiness is your nature. It is not wrong to desire it. What is wrong is seeking it outside when it is inside. ” ~ Ramana Maharshi
There is this incredible film that has been out for a while now called, “The Amazing Life of ____.” And guess what? You are the main star of it! Yes, you’ve single handedly produced this movie, directed the entire show, set the stage, hired the entire cast, all the while you’re playing the lead part. Wow, you must be amazingly talented! There may have been only one tiny little issue along the way. When you were designing this movie, acting out the scenes on stage, choosing your cast, you started feeling all the intense drama about your production, and we think you might have contracted a bit of amnesia. You may have forgotten that you are playing an imaginary role, on a temporary stage that you set up in this blockbuster motion picture.
Sometimes when we’ve been playing a certain role for sooooo long, we forget that its just one little part in the bigger play. Anytime that you get wrapped up in your personal drama about this show, you always have the option to step off the stage, sit down, say NO to all the hype, and begin watching from the seats in the back of the theatre. Whenever you feel the movie of your life has become too dramatic and not so enjoyable, you can remember that you have the choice to unplug the projector, turn down the volume on the audio, and take a peaceful walk out in nature.
On your walk, think about how all of the drama you’ve experienced inside this main lead actor in your life’s movie is not real. You have simply over-identified with the painful thoughts and feelings, simply because things didn’t turn out exactly the way your ego wanted them to go. Any over-identification with the role you’re playing in the movie of your life is what causes all your suffering. If you try to run away and escape from this role, you might spend many years in hiding, feeling lost and confused about what’s the true movie script for you.

No matter what happens to you in life, remember this one sweet understanding. You are powerful beyond measure, beautiful beyond words and truly an extraordinary being who has access to unlimited love, creativity and pleasure! All this is available inside you now. To access it, sit with the investigation of this understanding for a few minutes and see what happens! You might discover some resistance, denial or perhaps the realization that this amazing fact is already true within you all the time.
“Neither a lofty degree of intelligence nor imagination nor both together go to the making of genius. Love, love, love, that is the soul of genius.” ~Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Know that each block you encounter in life is your greatest catalyst to diving into a deeper experience of your most enlightened self. Every experience we have as human beings contains a doorway to this divine state. All that’s needed is to look for the door, reach out for the golden handle and walk on through. There is nothing as easy and fulfilling as entering the sweet paradise that is within your very being. It’s easiest to discover this warm fuzzy feeling inside when you are alone, in nature, quiet and looking within yourself for many hours. To arrive at this place means letting go of the busy productive hectic to-do list, and spend some quality time with you! Whatever is stopping you from making time for yourself is blocking you from experiencing a tremendous joy.
“Let them throw their curses. If inside, I am connected to what’s true, my soul stays quiet and clear. Do you think God worries what people say? If a few ashes fall on a mirror, use them to polish it.” ~Lalla 14th Century North Indian mystic
Have you ever had to make a challenging decision and thought, “Is this the right path to take?” or perhaps you had a bigger question such as “What am I supposed to do with my life?” Many of us are caught up in believing that if we can make the right decisions, stay on the “good” path and off the “bad” path, we will be rewarded in some way. This may be true to some degree, yet in the grand plan our soul is on an infinite journey and is interested in something much bigger.
“I remind myself every morning: Nothing I say this day will teach me anything. So if I’m going to learn, I must do it by listening.” ~Larry King
Your soul is much more advanced than your mind is. It has a deeper knowing inside it that FEELS which decisions and paths will lead to more joy, bliss and freedom, and which won’t. There’s a deeper experience of understanding the bigger picture of your life that is found within any small decision. Your soul, spirit, or Higher Self inherently knows that it is connected with an infinite Divine being that is the Source of all creation, something much greater than anything found in this physical world. The advanced soul innately understands that discovering this connection IS the real goal and ultimate “decision” to be made in this lifetime. Any other goal, decision, or question is merely a distraction. The fact that the media and society have been desperately trying to hypnotize you to believe otherwise only makes the real truth easier to be felt once it has been seen.
“Before God we are all equally wise – and equally foolish.” ~Albert Einstein
Flap your butterfly wings now, without hesitation, before your mind has a chance to whip out its caterpillar ID card! ~ Scott Kalechstein Grace
Everything I’ve learned so far I’ve learned from dogs!
I love watching dogs run after seagulls on the beach. They set their sights on a flock and then are focused, single-minded, and even quite passionate about running down a bird. At the same time, they are very fulfilled in the thrill of the chase, having a tremendous amount of fun just frolicking on the beach. Going home without having caught a bird doesn’t for one moment diminish their love of life.
When we realize that just being alive is the gift that keeps on giving, we may pursue our own gulls just as passionately, but far less frantically. We value the process as much as the intended outcome. We embrace whatever we encounter along the trip with loving arms open wide enough to be grateful for it all.
When we have tasted the nectar of a fulfillment that is not dependent on the outside world granting us our desires, we realize that life is blessing us as much when we don’t get what we want as when we do. In those times we get to practice being friends with reality, we must let go of our adversarial position to what is.
A heavy burden is lifted each time we release the arrogant assumption that we are in possession of the big picture perspective enough to really know what our highest good is supposed to look like. We get to more thoroughly chew on yet another spiritual slice of humble pie. A Course In Miracles invites us to digest: “I don’t perceive my own best interests.”
Beloved Ones, This is a very powerful time in the line up of planetary configurations and the energetic influence from the Spiritual realms. Many special dispensations of blessing and Love are being offered to Humanity, all that is required is being open to receive. Another passage of the Cosmic wheel has been made and we now embark on our new journey into unknown lands of new potential. As these time codes open up the portals, the influx of Cosmic Love and the waves of Light being sent to the Earth will activate the awakening of greater masses of Humanity.
These are the times you have been waiting for, for it means that you are all getting closer to the remembrance of your reason for being here in this Cosmic moment of the cyclic movement from one age to another. From this point onward, life will take on an impetus of one revelation after another coming into the Light of each person’s consciousness. Many of you will have your ‘aha!’ moments as the pieces of the puzzle start to fall into place and all the mysteries of your life become more clear. There is now an unstoppable awakening Light that is inundating this Planet and it is a peaceful, loving and powerful energy.
Be open to receiving more of all that is good in your daily existence. You have each been sorely tested and tried as you went through difficult initiations that have been preparing you to embody the greater Light that you truly are. The things of the Earth, although you will enjoy them, will no longer trap or distract you from your true purpose. You will have more time to explore the joys of embodiment in a form that is becoming multidimensional in its capacities. Being open to new experiences and moving beyond your previous boundaries will bring freedom to you on many levels of your Being.
The self plays an important role on the Path of Consciousness because it is through the self and its many different aspects that we are aware of our emotional, energetic and vibrational reality. Through awareness of the material self, our third dimensional, human self aspect, we are aware of our disconnection, fear and alone-ness in a vast Universe that we cannot control. But that is an illusion which lacks the element for transformation, enlightenment. To become conscious within our highest self aspects we can ‘enlighten’ the self, reminding us of our divinity and joining our human self into our spiritual self.
From the human perspective, being self conscious is where we are uncomfortable, recognize where we don’t fit in, are lacking in some way and are powerless, uncentered and grounded in a reality that lacks a foundation of spiritual truth. Through this type of self consciousness we see every fault and imperfection and how they are reflected in our reality. Being self conscious reminds us of our humanity and of how far removed we are from our divinity. This is our most powerless aspect and yet it is the one we use most often to interpret and navigate the world and our place in it.
But when we consider the many different aspects of the self, all of which can be expressed as different levels of consciousness, we can choose what we will be aware of and can then apply enlightenment to those areas. Are we weak and afraid? Enlightenment will release our fear and give us courage. Are we feeling undeserving and unworthy? Enlightenment will remind us that we are deserving and worthy of abundant, limitless blessings. Are we feeling unloved? Enlightenment reconnects us to our inner source of unconditional love and empowers us to be loving with ourselves, which attracts love to us.
We are all Enlightened Beings in disguise. Every being is born with full access to the highest peak of consciousness. If you look into a baby’s eyes you will see it. The sparkle of their pure uncluttered untainted consciousness is there. You can see that there is no time or beliefs in control of their mind, there’s just pure presence and awareness. They are a divine loving presence naturally, without even trying their Enlightened Nature shines through. This consciousness is in all of us for we were all once a baby.
“All beings are from the very beginning Buddhas.” ~ Hakuin
If our Enlightened Nature is already here now, complete and whole in itself, why isn’t the entire world filled with an abundance of Enlightened Beings? There is one little thing called the “ego”. The mind gets in the way and obscures this pure being. It’s like a fish in a fishbowl swimming around, causing all the muck to be stirred up distorting the clarity in the water. When the fish stops swimming and rests, the muck settles and everything becomes crystal clear. When you are in love with someone and you look deep into their eyes in that moment that your heart is bursting with joy, what do you see? If your mind is crystal clear you will only experience the loving, eternal, and divine aspects of their Enlightened Nature. The love frees this cluttered mind so you can see all the way through. By bringing the mind to a complete halt, the illusions of your mind disappear and you naturally experience the infinite source. This is secret to discovering Enlightenment.
“I do not know whether I was then a man dreaming I was a butterfly, or whether I am now a butterfly dreaming I am a man.” ~Chang Tzu
You are always manifesting something, whether you are conscious of it or not. You have manifested everything in your life from the shoes on your feet, to the amount of money in your bank, to the quality of every relationship in your life. The truth is you cannot stop manifesting. You are a super powerful manifesting being! So if you were to start consciously using this awesome power, what would you focus on manifesting into your life? Are you focusing on what you want from a place of hoping it will occur, or really trusting it will show up? Are you always conscious of how you are focusing on what you want, or do you tend to manifest things at an unconscious level out of habit? We are always sending out a vibrational energy into the Universe that boomerangs back to us in the form of physical manifestations which reflect the quality of this vibration. The question is what quality of energy are you putting into the thoughts you want to manifest?
“The key to success is to focus our conscious mind on things we desire not things we fear.” ~Brian Tracy
Perhaps you are simply humming along in life, living in a tick-tock 9 to 5 job with the TV as your companion without consciously asking yourself, “What kind of day do I want to manifest today?” Think about it. How would you like to FEEL at the end of today? When we are consciously manifesting, we are more specific, intuitive, and can create more energy around our dream. When we are unconsciously manifesting, we don’t exactly get what we really want. It tends to be more hit or miss. We get a little of this and a little of that.
“We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us, it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” ~Marianne Williamson
It would be easy to give in to the theme of today’s energy – a buzzkill. By this I mean that there is a distinct damper being placed on fun and enjoyment. But The Oracle Report is here to tell you about the pervasive energy and then give suggestions on how to handle it more effectively (in a way that serves our personal spiritual enlightenment and the evolution of the planet as a whole). Most importantly, we will need to significantly revise our expectations today.
It’s a new Moon with completely different energy from last month. Last month was ethereal and nebulous and this month is hard, cold reality. So if we soften our expectations of ourselves and others, we will be way ahead of the game.
If you find yourself beginning to struggle with anything, stop yourself and let it go. Don’t fight it! Fall back on the inner resources you developed over the past month – this is your true home. Accept that this is just a really weird day at an inopportune time. Make your own fun and joy in whatever way you can.
This energy will bring out the worst in many. Stand your ground, radiate your own field, and let it all happen around you. Doing this will change the conditions and lessen the effects. This New Moon is in Capricorn – which is ruled by Saturn and he doesn’t play around. The New Moon is also conjunct Pluto – which takes things deeply into the negative in order to bring about new positives. It is heavy energy, so do your best to lighten the mood and don’t allow others to make your day for you.
New Moon Phase ~ Sunday, December 25, 2011
On Christmas Day, there is only one thing to focus on: peace on Earth and good will toward all. Merry Christmas!
The most exquisite and enlightening experience of your life instantly shows up when you are fully open, receptive and available to the Universe. By being completely open, receptive and available to whatever the divine existence is offering you in this moment, the greatest experience of life simply pours in. Every deeply loving, successful, and magically divine experience will throw itself at your feet when you are open, available and receptive. This moment contains the magical state of enlightenment, and you can discover it spontaneously when you give up searching “out there” for the happiness, fulfillment or the “answers”, and start trusting your ability to receive the grace that is inherently yours to be experienced.
Imagine you are like a wildflower, who is always opening and receptive to the warm gentle light from the Sun. The soft delicate flower petals must then also be open to experiencing the harsher elements, such as the wind, rain, fertilizer and competitive weeds for a growing life to persist. When you live your life like this wildflower, you root yourself deep into fertile soil and welcome whatever enlightening or not so enlightening experiences life brings you. You know that all the soft and hard elements you attract are necessary for your soul’s highest evolution, and thus allow for each experience to enter you fully. As a result, a great strength and beauty is developed, and only is seen when you are consistently open and receptive to every experience life brings your way.
The experience of being open, receptive and available spontaneously happens when you have an unshakable trust that this highly intelligent loving existence always knows what’s best for you. Unstoppable receptivity is your ticket into Heaven, and yet to open the door and walk through the gates you will need 100% trust. When you’ve reached absolute trust on your inner world, your outer world feels this divine quality radiating from you, and the spark of enlightenment instantly ignites within you.
