The energy you can expect is similar to being shoved forward. Imagine you are a child sitting in a swing and a parent or loved one is pushing you into motion from behind. Many of you will feel a sense of pressure as you swing backward and are being pushed forward again. There is a pressure in your body and in the air around you as you change direction and pick up momentum. Some of you will experience this month as a high pressure time, whether through everyday stress or through a pressurizing event such as an illness. You may feel that you are running out of time, but actually the shove forward is meant to enable you to swing higher and more gracefully than you have before.
This image of a swing is important. As many of you have noticed, the process of Enlightenment is not very linear (allow us to state the obvious!). Because December offers a year-end transition point, it is a good time for you to review the last several years using an image other than a linear path upward or forward. Often you think of yourselves as moving forward because that helps you see your next step. Now is a perfect time to step back and take note that you are not really moving forward; you are moving around.
You have probably recognized by now that you tend to revisit issues and experiences. These issues and experiences are always different, but you seem to return to them because the process of Enlightenment, and the motion of time and energy on the planet now, moves in a spiral. The image of swinging on a swing set gives you a more useful way to relax into the natural momentum that you have developing as a spiritual being living in a human body. Again, the primary energy that you will feel during December is like being shoved forward in the context of the swinging back and forth, which is the spiral of Enlightenment, or Ascension.
Some of you will experience this as pressure or intensity. You will feel it in your individual lives, and you will experience a collective pressure. This is something that has been foreseen by many of your spiritual leaders and prophets – that this time on planet earth would offer a high pressure situation. It is not necessarily dark or heavy, it is simply intense. Anything that happens on planet earth during the month of December 2007 is likely to be amplified, whether it be joyful or destructive. This amplification works in the same way that a conflict can be amplified when someone enters the room with a grumpy attitude -- one small event can blow up into a huge conflict.
You may find that people are “highly-strung” or “at the end of their ropes.” You may find that collective experiences, be they political, geological, interpersonal, or social, are likely to be amplified. Things that may have been small six months ago will probably grow to be something larger in the month of December 2007. This can be used both for increasing joy on the planet as well as for increasing sorrow. Now is the perfect time to mindfully dedicate your energy to the good of the collective. Whether you do that through prayer, volunteering, or random acts of kindness -- anything you put into the collective that you think would be beneficial is likely to be amplified. In the same way that anything harmful or hurtful put into the collective is also likely to be amplified. That is the energy for the month.
The word you might focus on is “direction”. If you are swinging on a swing set and you decide to shift your hips just a little bit or move your leg to the side, you can throw off the trajectory of the swing completely. You can get yourself very tangled up pretty quickly! The best way to work with the energy at this time is to be mindful about direction and be intentional about the directions you choose to take. Never before has it been as useful to be mindful than it will be in the month of December 2007. If you decide to get a glass of water, stop and ask yourself, “Why am I getting this glass of water? Is this exactly what I want to be doing right now? Is this in my highest good as far as I can see right now?” If the answers to these questions make sense to you, then go ahead and get your glass of water. If you come to realize that you were getting the glass of water just out of habit, or out of a mindless need to escape some other situation, find a way to get into alignment with your highest good. Mindfulness in small every day matters is going to serve you well because of the amplification affect that is offered this month. Mindfully choose a direction and move toward it. This is the best way you can work with the energy in December 2007.
Beyond your personal direction, you can relax your minds from worry. The energy gathering on the planet at this time is so much bigger than any one of you. If you could look at the human race from above, you would see that what often looks like an anthill, just people moving from here and there and everywhere. Right now it looks far more organized. Many of you have tuned into your spiritual families, loved ones or the collective endeavors that you are meant to be a part of in this lifetime. Whether you have actually connected with them is a different question, but most of you have energetically attuned yourselves to the work you are meant to be doing on planet earth. Therefore, you are energetically more organized as a human race. The collective can create a more clear channel for your individual endeavors. Mindfulness will give you the ability to steer yourselves to become who you are meant to be more easily, in part because in the collective energy around you can help amplify your direction.
Because it tends to be a month full of social activity, and because many of you celebrate holidays during this month, we want to specifically invite you to use the practice of taking mindful direction moment by moment. Do not give yourselves the illusion that you will be able to maintain a general direction for days at a time or weeks at a time. Instead take it moment by moment. Ask yourselves again and again what your highest good would be right now and turn toward it in any way that you can.
The information we have to share is not about usefulness, it is about power. First, we can say that the energy of this month is more important than any specific day. The month centers on an energetic fulcrum that is situated in time. It is as if the energy of the month is a flat disc sitting atop a ball or a stake, and it is balancing so that the whole energy of the month is wobbly. It is a changeable month. On any given day you may find yourselves completely changing direction. Every day this month has an opportunity for transition. The most important way to navigate this is, at any point during the month of December 2007, be ready and willing to drop everything and change your mind.
Much of the energy balances upon the days of December 9th through 12th. These days are like a fulcrum, holding up the rest of the month. There is something about them that is really intense. You can imagine them like a stake sticking out of the ground with a pointy top, or as one of the boards in a picket fence. The days are very solid but they have a fine point. These days, particularly December 10th and 11th, are huge power days. They are not like a Stargate or a portal; they are more like a complete shift of everything all at once. Do not let this frighten you. You will only shift in the directions that your soul needs you to in order for you to achieve your highest good.
On December 11th and 12th, everything is changing. Some of you may be very aware of the energetic shift involved in this. Many more of you will feel numb or checked out on these days, as if you cannot really deal with anything. Energetically you are adjusting so rapidly to such fundamental changes that you may find it too much to take on anything extra on a conscious level. When this occurs, it can be useful to just “zone out.” It will be useful to watch TV, read a novel, get a massage or go for a walk. Just give yourself a break during these days. Unconsciously, in your ethereal or fifth dimensional bodies, you are so busy that trying to make anything happen in your everyday lives may be futile. Give yourselves a simple agenda for these days.
It is likely, in the days following the remainder of the month after the 12th, that many of you may feel just a bit disoriented. It is not likely to be an enormous disorientation. It seems that most of you will be able to carry on as always, but you will feel different under the surface of consciousness. It is the feeling of dj vu. You will feel as if everything has changed, though you will look around and not be able to see how it has changed. Eventually you will find that through the months of December and January, moving into February, that you will integrate and you will step into a much stronger version of yourself. We will be talking more about power in January because standing in your power has become necessary for many of you. Many of you have had experiences in your lives that have forced you to claim your power or stand up for yourselves. As we move out of December and into January and February, you will find the power is no longer a struggle but it becomes a joy. We will discuss this more in future months. This is the shift we are describing. It brings you into alignment with your own power in a way that most of you have never experienced before.
There are two other days we want to tell you about in December. One is December 17th. December 17th is like a chance to take a deep breath. It is a little bit of a suspension, or a pause, so mark on your calendars in advance that December 17th is a day for you to take a rest, sort of like a Sabbath. Limit your activities in order to spend some time reflecting. You might write in a journal, talk to a good friend or visit with a friend who has known you for a long time; anything that helps you reflect on your lives without too much depth but with more fun and ease will be useful on December 17th. Specifically December 17th is overseen by fairies. It is a very light-hearted day so any way you can tap into that feeling on December 17th will benefit you.
The other day we want to discuss is December 31st; it is the last day of the month. December 31st is driven by the element of fire. The image of the phoenix is useful here. It is just before the phoenix rises up out of the ashes, when the fire burns everything down. This energy is actually likely to continue until about January 3rd. December 31st through January 3rd is a perfect time for you to release, to burn away anything that is not serving you. These are excellent days to exercise physically, to sweat, to eat spicy food and to build the internal fire of your bodies. These are perfect days to throw things away, to clean out your closets. There is a cleansing, fiery energy beginning on December 31st. A Stargate opens at this time that gives a particular ability for release.
There is nothing about the collective energy that you need to be careful or cautious about. Some of you may be careful or cautious but you do not need to be. The energy of December can be very playful. In fact, the energy of December throughout history has been a playful energy. If all of the Decembers that have ever occurred were sitting in a room, it would be a huge party. Historically, December holds a very light, shifting energy.
However, December of 2007 carries an intensity that the average December does not. The mindfulness that we give you, that guidance to more directive and intentional about what you are doing, can bring you to playfulness. This is the way an athlete is very mindful about every move they make with their muscles. For instance, let us imagine a snowboarder or skier flying down the mountain having a great time. They are moving fast, experiencing adrenaline, completely and joyfully doing exactly what they love. Their body is completely attuned to every tiny little shift, breath or twitch. They are mindful because that constant mindfulness leads them to their greatest joy. It allows them a more fine-tuned ability to steer their bodies in the direction that they want to go.
In the same way, swinging on the swing set can an incredibly joyful activity. It demands that you stay centered, that you continue to tune into the momentum and move with it, and that you mindfully choose when to kick your legs and when to pull them back. If you are not mindful and flap your legs around, you will get tangled up. If you are mindful, you can achieve new heights and new sensations of joy. Mindfulness is not there to pull you back or give you caution; it is there to move you forward and it can be very playful.
Standing in your power is to completely honor your divinity at all times, in all situations. More specifically this means refusing to believe that you are anything less than completely perfect, and refusing to believe that any other human being is less than completely perfect. You might say that standing in your power is equivalent to standing in Grace.
Many of you step out of your power when you begin to believe that you are a victim. When you begin to believe that things happen to you, rather than that you, at some level, have chosen the experience of reality that you are in. For some of you, stepping out of your power means believing that people around you are making mistakes or they are not doing things “right.” When you are standing in your power, you recognize that the people around you each have a Higher Self that is guiding them to do what they need to grow as individuals and follow their own unique path. When you are standing in your power, you remember that you, too, have a Higher Self that is guiding you. When you are standing in your power you trust that your reality exists for the benefit your highest good, and you continually seek relationships and situations that honor your divine nature.
Standing in your power means being completely unwilling to accept behavior or a situation that does not honor your divine nature. As you reclaim your personal power, you become unwilling to accept mistreatment and you also become unwilling to fight for a situation to become something that it is not. For some of you that will mean walking away from situations that degrade you. For others it will mean moving toward situations because they fill you with joy. Standing in your power often will mean standing up for yourselves in everyday situations. It will also mean standing up for those around you, but never at the expense of your own well-being and highest good.
A key component for understanding your personal power is understanding your inherent connection with everything around you, which means that when someone near you is being mistreated it affects you. It is an affront to your divinity as much as it is to that person’s. Standing in your power is a calling to be true to yourselves. Not to the self that you may have been taught that you were, maybe not smart enough or strong enough, but actually to your true selves who are perfectly what you are meant to be in this lifetime and always remembering and reclaiming your inherent goodness.
The process of standing in your power unfolds in every person’s life differently. The execution is very individual. Some of you will be much louder than you have ever been before, while others will be much quieter than you have been before. It will look different for everyone, it always comes back to a continual striving to honor your divinity and the truth that you are Love.
Absolutely yes. In fact the connections among you provide the baseline for the experience of the month. That amplification that takes place at this time is reliant on the fact that you are all so deeply connected to one another. The love you have gathered and expressed in the month of November, and all the work you have done to heal and reach out to one another over the last few year years, is what brings you to the intensity of this month.
In December most of what you will experience will remind you of how much you are connected to one another. When one person takes action, it will be apparent that it affects everything. This collective power is only there because you are connected. You can count on the fact that if you are not moving toward a greater feeling of connection with the people in your life, or with the groups surrounding you, that you will have events occur that remind you that you are connected. It is not only a potential, it is a fact that you will become more aware of your connections with one another this month because it is that awareness that brought you here in the first place.
The word offset is the perfect word to describe what you do have power to do in your collective endeavors. You cannot diminish an experience for another person, but you can offset the effects on the collective experience. We will offer an example in regard to how to use this direction during the month, specifically in regard to your relationships in groups.
First and foremost it will benefit all of you to be more mindful about which events you engage in and which groups you engage with during the month of December 2007. If you have a plan to join your family for a holiday event or go to a business meeting and you find on the day of the event that you just do not feel like going, stop and ask yourself why. Is there something about the event that diminishes your power or your joy? If so, address this specific problem and make adjustments in advance. Can you sense that the event will not serve your highest good? If that is the case, choose not to go. Before you engage in anything this month, become more mindful about who and why you are engaging in the first place.
Second, be willing to change your mind or change direction mid-course. As you engage in groups, meetings, and holiday gatherings, watch as the dynamic changes. Is there a person you need to avoid? Is the event becoming to dense for you? If you find you no longer want to be there, then mindfully make the choice to leave. This is a perfect month to use the kind of social bravery necessary to do things that you are afraid might make people uncomfortable or hurt people’s feelings. You are far better served by listening to your intuition or your gut instinct in regard to engaging with groups than you are in following social protocol. The light-hearted energy that exists in every December will serve you as you bravely change your mind and choose a different course.
If you find that it is too difficult to actually back out of the plans or cancel an event, continue to take note on what your gut instinct tells you beforehand. See your feelings for what they are, even if you choose to do something you do not want to do. Later, take note that your gut instinct or your intuition was probably right. This is not so that you can notice that you made a mistake but so that you can notice and begin to rely on the truth of your intuition. It is often easy to forget what your intuition told you if you choose to go against it. If you will remember, it will give you more space to trust your intuition in the future.
Some of you may find it useful to keep a journal over the course of the month in which you take note of the plans you have made, and then take note of how you feel beforehand. Do you feel good about the plan? Do you feel excited to join the people, or do you feel dread? After the event, take note again of how it worked out and how you feel. Eventually you will find your own language for how to listen to that intuition and then you will find the courage to trust it and make some social decisions that give you more space to be true to yourself in the future.
We will take a little time to clear up that sense you are having that this will be a heavier month. It really is not a heavier month, it is just more direct. This energy is not a lack of joy, it is simply a presence of focus. In terms of prosperity, like everything in regard to December 2007, occurs in response to focus. Whatever you focus on will really create the direction you move in. Remember the energy of the swings. Whatever direction you kick or turn your toward is the direction you will go. Another image we can give you is skateboarding, snowboarding or surfing, in which any direction you turn your shoulders determines how the rest of your body follows.
In regard to prosperity, if your focus is on what you are missing or what you wish you had, then you will continue to wish to have it. If your focus is on what you do have and what you love having, then you will move toward having more of that, having it in more ways, and having it over more time. The age-old truth about abundance remains more true than ever. It is simply amplified. The truth is, if you are focused on wanting something then you will continue to want it; if you are focused on having something, then you will have it. Notice what you do have this month. Use the practices of gratitude and celebration in your holidays. Let your entire focus be toward gratitude and to the sense of prosperity that you have in your lives already. You will then find that the rest of you follows into that prosperity. If you were on a surfboard and turned your shoulders, the rest of your body would follow in that direction. The intensity of the month actually makes it easier for you to amplify the things you wish for so that you can access even more prosperity than you could have in previous months.
There is no lack of joy or playfulness in the month of December 2007. Instead we are giving you guidance about direction because it enables you to steer yourselves more specifically, and that enables you to go toward more joy if you want more joy. There is an incredibly joyful energy here. The real knack for working with the energy of this month is to enjoy the process of focusing and being mindful, rather than imagining that the joy is a complete letting go or a complete ignoring of things that may be difficult. The more you can place your mind and engage your thinking in what you are doing and why, the more joy you will find is available for you and the more easily you can steer toward things that you want. Whereas if you choose to let some details slip and not pay attention to yourself one day, not pay attention to something you had promised to do or not pay attention to a gut feeling that you are having, then you are likely to lose control altogether, just as you would on the swings if you kick the wrong way. Joy really resides in focus this month and if you can develop a knack for that, you will have a splendid time with the month of December 2007. Enjoy the ride!
