Crisis: Your Call to Awakening!

Crisis Awakening - Man Standing on EarthThe shift is hitting the fan more than ever now, isn’t it? Perhaps you too are noticing more and more people spiraling into crisis mode. Some situations that seem overwhelming are persisting and even intensifying.

Clients in Crisis

I am now working with an increasing number of astrology and shamanic healing clients in situations that are, at times, literally challenging their sanity. Yet, from my shamanic perspective, I am able to see that all of these seemingly negative situations are blessings in disguise. And by the end of my healing sessions with these people, they were able see the upside of these seemingly horrific situations. Their crises were exactly the catalysts they needed to shift into a higher state of consciousness!

A Cosmic Turning Point

I’ll describe how all these people were able to accomplish these extraordinary awakenings in a moment. But first, let me give a brief overview of the universal energies that are now bringing things to a boil.

The Mayan Long Count calendar, with a cycle of over 5000 years, completes its current cycle either in October 2011 or December 2012. (Depending on whom you believe.) This is widely viewed as a revolutionary turning point for global civilization, although there are many different opinions about exactly what will happen.

Amma and Bhagavan are the avatars who founded the global Oneness Blessing (Deeksha) movement. They say that the world shifted from the Kali Yuga (the darkest age) to the Satya Yuga (the highest-vibration Golden Age) in February 2011.

The Uranus-Pluto Square

In Western astrology, we are now entering an intense, multi-year Uranus-Pluto square. These two planets were conjunct during the 1960s, and were primarily responsible for that decade’s explosion of revolutionary transformation. Their applying square is the strongest connection that Uranus and Pluto have made since the 60s.

Uranus and Pluto will form exact 90° squares seven times 2012 through 2015. They have been close enough to the square for their connection to have had significant impact for the last several years, and they will square within 1° next month (August 2011). The recent series of three eclipses in a one-month period has also heated things up considerably.

There are many other factors in play, in Western astrology and many other systems, but the overall theme is unmistakable. Major change is in the air. Old systems that no longer serve our highest good are breaking down. These range from the corrupt global financial system to nuclear power plants to Arab dictatorships.

Awakening: Resistance and Breakthrough

Some are in the grip of fear-based thinking. They believe that dark forces are about to overwhelm the planet, scheming to plunge us into an extended period of hopelessness and despair. But others, like myself, see these widespread breakdowns in a very different light. We believe that the world has already entered a new Golden Age. From this perspective, what we are now witnessing on the world stage is the first stage of the Golden Age. This involves the breakdown or restructuring of everything that does not belong in this new enlightened era.

Human society always reflects peoples’ consciousness. Lasting change can never be imposed from without, but must be initiated from within. Thus, the Golden Age is now arising one person at a time, as each person wakes up to experience their own divine nature.

Most of us will not depart from our status quo as long as it’s reasonably comfortable – or at least not excruciatingly painful! It’s only when our reality becomes intolerable that many of us are finally motivated to create significant change in our lives.

Such was the case with the clients I mentioned earlier. Their level of psychological distress had reached the boiling point, and they desperately needed relief.

Transcending the Problem

Albert Einstein once said, “Problems cannot be solved by the same level of thinking that created them.” It was clear to me that the mental solutions these people had been trying were ineffective, and would continue to be so. To help them, we had to go not to a new mental strategy, but beyond the mental realm entirely!

Using a series of invocations, I had my clients call upon their own divine wisdom, power and love for help. By the end of their sessions, their consciousness had undergone a profound shift. They no longer identified primarily with their human egos and bodies. They were now experiencing themselves as beings of light, temporarily inhabiting human bodies.

From this higher perspective, the crises that have been so intolerable before now caused them little or no distress. The Higher Self – now their primary identity – sees the perfection in all things and is bothered by nothing. From this more enlightened perspective, they clearly perceived that suffering is a choice. They experienced that suffering can only persist when fed by their attention. This divine consciousness is also a purely intuitive level. One simply knows what to do at all times, without the need for any decision-making or other mental activity. You could think of it as “Divine GPS.”

Some who have experienced this shift eventually slip at least partially back into their limited human consciousness. But others take up permanent residence in their new light body awareness. (And continue growing in consciousness from there!) Thanks to the simple and virtually effortless invocation process, all they have to do to maintain their new level of divine consciousness is to keep asking for it to be refreshed when necessary.

Viral Awakening

And it gets better! Every person who wakes up automatically radiates the energy of awakening. This makes it that much easier for the next awakening person. Once enough people achieve this higher level of consciousness, humanity reaches a tipping point. At that magical moment, I believe that every unawakened human on the planet will spontaneously begin experiencing divine consciousness as their “new normal.”

From my perspective, the crises being experienced by my clients were no accident. They were deliberately set up by their own Higher Selves. It was time for them to awaken, and they weren’t doing it on their own. Thus, their divine consciousness had to do what was necessary to accelerate the process.

Your Golden Opportunity

Are you in a chronically stressful situation that just won’t let up? Perhaps you’re in the same fortunate situation! If working at the mental level doesn’t resolve the issue, why not try a shift in consciousness? My invocation techniques are offered free on this site. Many people have experienced breakthroughs using them on their own. I am also available to guide you through the process, in an astrological or shamanic context, should you desire my assistance.

The shift is hitting the fan. Time to catch the breeze and fly!

    To make a long story short, a recurring theme throughout my life was the misuse of power. 22 years ago when it came to my 2 year old daughter, l spent a few intense years of healing, clearing and spiritual growth. I slowed down at some point to assimilate and maybe started dozing. The theme continued but I thought I was dealing with it on a mundane level even when about 3 to 4 years ago it came into my job and continued to escalate. Last spring I came a across your website,learned about the Pluto configurations, started using your invocations and everthing shifted. I realized I had been healing and releasing more levels all along and I no longer needed to put myself in that situation anymore. I need the money from the job, but I have resigned and will be offering a spirituality class later this month as well as my services as a reiki master, intuitive sessions, energy balancing and more. Thank you so much and wish me luck!
