We sense that ‘normal’ isn’t coming back, that we are being born into a new normal, a new kind of society, a new relationship with the earth, a new experience of being human.

~Charles Eisenstein, author of Sacred Economics

I don’t write new year’s predictions. I like reading what other people write but don’t feel like this is a niche for me.  Yet I felt drawn to share this message as we end 2016.

The best prediction I have read was written several years ago by Nancy Joy Hefron of heartlights.net and I think it applies every bit as much to each new year, including this one. She said that the new year will bring what each person needs for their individual growth and learning.  We may all have some similar experiences but we will each respond in our own unique way.  And each person’s life will have unique aspects, tailored to what we need for our particular journey.

As we feel the shifts and sense the changes occurring all around us, some people cling to the current reality with fear and resistance to change, unable to imagine a better way to live and be. Others have a vision of what the world, individually and collectively, can be-filled with beauty, peace, joy and love.  When we are able to sense and envision the wonderful possibilities, we are naturally motivated to reach out for them and create them.

Together, let’s create a wonderful 2017!

My beloved co-creators,

Indeed you are being born into a new experience of being human and simultaneously you are creating this new experience. I rejoice to share this dance with you!!  If the new earth was handed to you without your active involvement, you would be deprived of the joy of being the co-creator which is your birthright, your divine role.  As we create the new way of living and being for people and the planet, we will learn and grow together, bonded and blessed by the intimate connection with each other and all of creation.

How can I explain this? You are being given the parts, the components, so to speak.  You are being given the tools of creation.  You are being given the blueprints, the possibilities.  You are surrounded by partners in the Seen and Unseen Realms.  All that you need is being provided to you.  Yet you are an active participant.  You are not just the observer, you are the Master Builder and Co-creator!

There are challenges, to be sure. But don’t be overwhelmed or daunted by them.  Look within, accessing your heart center and the wisdom that flows to you so abundantly.  Breathe the breath of life with your partners in the realm of spirit.  Listen to the heartbeat of your Earth Mother and know for sure that you are supported and loved beyond measure.

Then step forward with confidence, knowing that together we are invincible and can create such beauty together, always together. Rivers of peace will flow throughout the earth, washing away all that is not peace.  Light will shine so brightly that darkness will vanish, sometimes in the twinkling of an eye.  You are never alone!  Hold my hand and you will draw upon my strength that is so incredibly powerful.  I love you, dear ones, and send my love to you, only love, always love, love overflowing

I am Gaia, your Earth Mother, your friend

Time for an upgrade?!

What appears so daunting on many levels signifies an opportunity for (each of us) and humanity to make a leap into learning about the power we all hold to create the changes that will benefit the world.                                                                                        Bonnie Orgren, Stardust Seven Ray Services Report

The obviousness of the changes swirling around us and within us grows clearer all the time. I have recently had a couple of experiences that anchored this knowing more deeply within me.  And I am becoming more aware of changes needed in my own life to respond, assist and benefit from this process.  I (we) are being upgraded!

The first incident related to this learning for me involved my cell phone. I had checked ‘later’ on my cell phone’s update button so many times that it quit appearing.  But recently when I came back from a trip to Canada after visiting my daughter, I was having some problems so went to my cell phone provider and the person who helped me told me I needed to do the upgrade.  She rattled off the steps I needed to do when I got home.  I asked her to write it down, knowing I would otherwise get home and have forgotten.  And I felt some upgrade resistance!!

The phone update was quite simple and quick. Ah, but then re-learning to use my cell phone!  It seems amusing now but was frustrating at the time.  I couldn’t figure out what to press or swipe to get to the icons (or whatever they are called) to operate my phone.  I was pushing and poking to no avail.  I kept getting the camera and, not knowing how to get out of it, taking random photos of whatever was in front of me.  Grrrr!  Where was a 7-year-old when I needed them??

So I swallowed my pride and went to my cell phone provider again. In less than 30 seconds a nice young man showed me how to work the thing.  I valiantly resisted my urge to feel stupid and humiliated.  I did tell him that they needed to develop a simple phone for old people to use, giving him a quick lesson on landlines, party lines and past phone history.  The polite young whippersnapper didn’t say anything, just looked at me with a combination of compassion, empathy and probably pity and as I left.  He probably doesn’t even know what a whippersnapper is!!  I did reluctantly realize that there are now useful features that I wouldn’t have accessible without the upgrade.  Upgrade integration!

A bigger lesson has been happening in my life, as well. I have been running into some old programming that needed updating.  At first I didn’t realize what was happening but life is persistent and the upgrades that needed to happen have become clearer.  I am working through them more gracefully now that I realize the bigger picture.  I am seeing positive aspects to overcoming ‘upgrade anxiety’.

I share these things because what is happening to us individually is so closely related to what is happening in the collective and to all of us. As Mastering Alchemy teacher Jim Self says repeatedly, ‘you can’t take your baggage with you on this journey’.  Sounds simple till it’s baggage inside of us that needs to be cleared.  Yet when we do the work and upgrade, our lives are lighter and free-er.  And life seems to turning up the spotlight on things that need to shift.  The good news is that the higher frequency of earth energy and collective wisdom and spiritual growth means that the upgrades and shifts happen much faster than in the past which is a blessing.

So when old memories come up that need attention, bumps come up in relationships or other life circumstances or old beliefs are challenged, ask if it’s time for an upgrade, a shift. The new programming is waiting to be installed and integrated into our lives.  But we have to take action for it to happen.  Always, the Divine has our best interests in mind, wanting us to be more joyful, lighter and more free.  Help is available in great abundance if we ask for it.

Holiday blessings and wishes for smooth upgrades,                                                                         Mary

When it’s time to learn something, we will learn it; our choice is whether it is through joy or through pain.                                                                                                                   Marianne Williamson, “A Return to Love”

Author Carolyn Myss says something similar, that when we need to learn something we can either take the wisdom path or the woe path.  It feels like with the Trump election in the U.S., we have chosen the woe path.  No doubt we’ll learn a lot, get stronger, step into our individual and collective power, etc. but really?…couldn’t we have chosen a better way?  Of course we could have but we didn’t so here we are, figuring out how to navigate through what’s ahead.

It’s easy to focus on Trump with his high profile media persona but I think many/most people agree that issues are far larger and deeper than him.  Our institutions and systems are no longer working well, particularly for people who aren’t part of the wealthy elite.  And the breakdowns are getting more visible all the time, I think.  We need a massive transfusion of love, peace, justice, compassion and kindness.  We can be those things individually and collectively!  We can help to transmute the darkness into radiant light!  It doesn’t feel like it will be easy but our energy is certainly needed.

I am including 3 links at the end of this message to articles by Charles Eisenstein, Dana Mrkich and Matt Kahn.  I have found them to have perspectives that are helpful to me as I try to discern my path through the chaos and challenges ahead.  Perhaps they will be helpful to you.

There is so much that could be said but I’ll just share a couple more thoughts.  First of all, we each have choices and we can individually choose the wisdom path as much as possible, despite what anyone else does.  The other thing I keep hearing when I tune into Gaia and nature is that we have Unseen Ones who can help us tremendously.  Perhaps one purpose of what is going on is to encourage and motivate us to ask for help from the wisdom and strength of those in the Unseen Realm.

May we join hearts and minds and unite in our intention to continue to birth the New Earth.                                                                                                                                                   Blessings, Mary

From Gaia, December, 915, 2016

Beloved ones, precious and dear to my heart, The current times may cause many people to feel despair, hopelessness, discouragement and fear.  Yet you are asking for transformation as you become more aware of the injustices, corruption and inequalities that are becoming more obvious all the time.  These problems have existed for millennia, dear ones.  Now they are coming to the surface to be seen, acknowledged and dealt with.  And you are being given the tools and energetic support to do what needs to be done.

Although it is important to be aware of the problems that need attention, the last thing that the earth needs is more fear!  The earth needs your partnership, caring and love.  Never doubt the power of human love, co-creating with the Unseen Ones who surround you and love you more profoundly than you can imagine.

Of course, there is a need for activism, standing strong in the face of injustice of all forms.  Take action when you see needs that you can help to fulfill.

But also know in your hearts that there is a need for you to vibrate with love, shining the light of your love everywhere, always.  Think of fireflies, each shining a small light.  Yet when many shine, the twinkling lights transform the landscape with magic.  So with small candles or lamps.  Each sheds a light that collectively can be like the Sun, illuminating everything!

Hold fast to your vision of the earth healed and whole and all of creation with it.  Comfort yourselves and ask for comfort from your Earth Mother and all of the Unseen Realm when you feel overwhelmed by the travails of life.  Rest when you are tired.  Take action when you feel called.  Know that no matter how dark things seem, there is light shining on you from an unending and powerful Source.  Ask for help and you will receive it.  Know that you are loved, my darlings, and that I send love to you each moment, only love, always love, love overflowing.

I am Gaia, your Earth Mother, your friend
