The following is from writer Nicolya Christi, author of “Contemporary Spirituality for an Evolving World: A Handbook for Conscious Evolution,” “2012: A Clarion Call,” among other books. I believe many readers will relate to her descriptions of the plight of lightworkers during this shift.
I’ll also drop a short video of her at the end of this post, which isn’t related to what she’s written here, but will give you a sense of her gracious, clear energy. Nicolya says Part 2 of this equinox theme will be available tomorrow; I will post it when I see it. Numerous sources (one of whom I posted on this blog the other day) claim that 9/22/2013 will flood Earth with the strongest infusion of cosmic light thus far. We would do well to be as heart-centric as we are able during this window. ox W
Dearest ♥ Friends,
It has been some time since I have written about the pre- and post 21.12.12 evolutionary trajectory. The main reason for this is that I have been living it and, in that, observing and feeling into a coherent sense of what is continuing to unfold.
The last time I wrote with any in-depth detail of the phenomenon that was/is 21.12.12 was on that very date. At the beginning of this year I found myself preoccupied with an all consuming experience of a ‘Blank Slate’, (scroll back on my Wall to late January/February to read about this) which had unexpectedly presented in my life, immediately following the ‘Great Shift of 2012’.
Recently, I have begun to experience a familiar feeling of a need to ‘push’, which overtakes me whenever there is something significant I must share about human conscious evolution, as directed by Heavenly and Earth phenomena. And so it is that I am with an overwhelming need to write about this immensely significant September Equinox. Here, I shall share the very kernel of gnosis I am sitting with which reveals the auspicious significance of this date, a gnosis that has been rapidly intensifying these past weeks.
The Quickening – 1999 – 2012: Breakdown to Breakthrough
Many friends of the message of this Work will be aware that between 2009 and 2012 I wrote extensively on the phenomenon that was/is 21.12.12, (for those who missed these writings you will find in-depth accounts in my book ‘2012: A Clarion Call’ and on my Facebook Wall by scrolling back to pre-21.12.12). And so, many who are reading this will be familiar with the thirteen-year accelerated evolutionary awakening phase that the Classic Maya termed “The Quickening”. They predicted this period of time would commence in 1999, (initiated at the time of the Total Solar Eclipse on August 11, 1999, at 11:11 GMT/UT). The Maya prophesied this window of time would continue for thirteen years, culminating at 11.11 GMT/UT on the December Solstice of 21.12.12. They heralded “The Quickening” as an unrivalled opportunity for humanity to consciously evolve and spiritually awaken at an unprecedented rate.
And so it was that many of us traversed and struggled through the years from 1999 to 2012. What an intensely transformational, profound, challenging, gruelling and uphill journey that time proved for so many of us. Onwards and upwards we marched, heads down, sleeves rolled up, knee deep in the thick of our own quagmires, many a time feeling the odds were stacked against us.
To take full advantage of the dispensation that these thirteen years afforded us really did require that we had the courage to turn ourselves and our lives inside out and upside down in order to shine the light of awareness into every dark corner, every nook and cranny, and leave no stone unturned.
The theme of ‘The Quickening’ can be summed up in five words – Breakdown in order to Breakthrough.
Many light-workers and awakening ones teetered on the very edge of checking out – literally leaving the planet – such was the intensity of the wave after wave after wave of evolutionary challenges that assailed us from every direction. Loves were lost, friends were lost, homes were lost, jobs were lost, savings were lost, health was lost, sanity was almost lost, direction was lost, the steady ground beneath our feet was lost. The most catalytic line from ‘The Invitation’ (channeled by Oriah Mountain Dreamer) summed up The Quickening – “I want to know what sustains you from the inside when all else falls away” – what a stunning challenge indeed. The time of ‘The Quickening’ asked us to rise up and meet our shadow and our light head on. This was the ‘eye of the needle‘ moment, the ‘gauntlet’ thrown at our feet by the Higher Realms and our Higher Selves. It was the Initiation – the Gateway to Liberation.
Some of us crawled, a few of us walked, and even fewer ran to the 21.12.12 threshold. As we crossed the ultimate threshold in human history (please read Clarion Call to understand why), so many of us felt the full weight of exhaustion and the impact of traumatic past (and future) lives rise to the surface for release through the physical body. Lifetimes of stories, dramas, patterning, ancestral wounding, genetic programming, karmic releasing etc began to shift and dissolve because of the presence of the rare and unprecedented Shift energies and rare astrological events of 2012, (see Clarion Call for a full list of these), as well as the phenomenon of all timelines converging on 21.12.12.
As 22.12.12 dawned and 2013 followed quickly in its wake, waves of light workers awoke to a new perception that begged the question – Where to from here?
The compass of the old paradigm had broken under the immense and utterly transformational energies of The Great Shift, which transported us into an entirely new era. We were standing on new ground. Our compasses broken, many experienced a period of disorientation. Still more were becoming increasingly aware of an emerging ‘Blank Slate’ reality presenting in their own lives, on which they could write a new story. As I wrote at the time:
“The time is upon us to write a new story. Not ‘his story’ which is a patriarchal one, or ‘her story’, which is that of the matriarch, yet another ‘story’ entirely – This Story – OUR STORY”.
Another quote I posted at the time was the following:
“The time has come to write a new story for our lives and to let go of those handed down to us by our families and culture. These are not our stories; they do not belong to us. We must now hand them back with love and appreciation and write our own.”
Legions of awakened ones believed that 2013 was going to be a year that revealed, in the most tangible manner, the total transformation of our lives and of life on Earth. My own stance, pre and post 21.12.12, has been that although all will appear the same on the surface, at a foundation level everything will have changed.
I have not written about 21.12.12 since December, as I had deep gnosis that I needed to ‘percolate’ on the post-Shift energies and see where I landed at a felt-sense level before writing further on the evolutionary journey of the individual and humanity. So, I have percolated and slowly a deeper understanding is anchoring into my consciousness, albeit piece by piece, like a grand jigsaw. Slowly the pieces are fitting into place to reveal a glimpse of the bigger overview and create a clear ‘localised’ picture of where we are right now.
