Time to Let Go: Out with the Old, In with the New as We Make the 2012 Shift

As we approach the end of the old Great Cycle on December 21, we may be alarmed at what we see around us. We have been in a transition zone, a time when old energy is winding down — when we are emptying of our old ideas and ways of being. Yet, we haven’t yet started to fill with the new — not quite, not completely. During this transition, we have endured shock after shock in things both public and personal. From the revelations that accompanied Hurricane Sandy and the US election, to a culmination of our personal trials, we have become acutely aware of the deep, down, and dirty both inside us and in our world. Our relationships have gone through the transformative fire as well, reflecting what is going on for each us inside.

Happy Birthday, Planet Earth!

This must happen as the old age ends and we prepare for the New Age that arrives on December 21st, when the Solstice lines up at the exact Galactic Center, the 2012 event. This is the “end” signaled by the Maya with their Long-Count calendar, the beginning of our return to the light. As we approach that date, the time of emptying is ending, but it’s not over yet! Many things are coming to the surface, including feelings that can be difficult to handle — fear, anger, anxiety. This has been emphasized over the past year, but it is especially strong now at this end of the old Great Cycle when all that remains of the lower vibration must be burned away. At the time of this alignment, when the new Great Year begins (Earth’s “Birthday”, one 26000-year wobble on her axis), there is a great amplification of energy that occurs with Earth’s harmonic alignment with the precise center of our Milky Way Galaxy’s black hole. We have been in the zone of this energy blast for at least 200 years, building to a crescendo of intensity on December 21, then waning over the next 200 years.

Ride the Waves!
As we pass through this zone, we are challenged us to respond to the shift, and we do, each in our own way. People who don’t know how to change feel the most challenged, while those who have become supple through previous transformations will ride the waves more easily. As we learn to set aside our fears, we begin to feel calmer inside. When this happens to each of us, the world also becomes more peaceful. Where in September–November our feelings were inflamed with incidents that brought out our deepest wound, now we’re beginning to feel our inner tempest subside. In political and world conflicts too, this intense negativity is systematically being burned off. They can and will be resolved! The burning will continue beyond December 21, but we can see a glimmer of recovery occurring in pockets here and there, in growing numbers. We can see it in our own lives as we let go.

December is Transition Time
December is about doing what needs to be done to make our transition into a new way of being. There may be unfinished situations that remain so into 2013 — in fact, this is expected. But now we know what we want and how to go about it — or we will find out very soon. This is by far the greatest challenge in any new beginning. We cannot stop our return to the light, but we can change its speed, and direct its energies along a unique and creative path as it climbs ever upward. Each of us develops an irreplaceable and precious gift as we make the ascent, our treasure of the spirit.
