This evening’s post comes from my friend (and one of the very first Reiki Master Teachers I ever trained!), Michele Geyer. She beautifully articulates converging cycles of Mayan, Jewish and Celtic traditions, showing how each reveals an “as within, so without” reality. Feeling the intensity these days? I hope this article offers some perspective and relief. We’re getting there! (If you’d like to see the original article with all of Michele’s illustrations and photos, please click here.)
Mayan Mystic Columns: A Map to Higher Vibrations
There are many maps available to guide us, many templates for evolution and stimulation of awareness and consciousness. Why is it so difficult for humanity to find its way?
We all know that times are tough right now. In every mainstream domain–economic, political/legal, societal and religious, there is upheaval. Many of us see the humor, even the light in all this chaotic darkness; yet many are trapped in the negative 3-dimensional thought patterns that accompany the destruction of our systems.
Maybe life would be a bit easier if those who are stuck on the 3-D hamster wheel could keep in mind that these systems are destroying themselves and that they/we don’t have to die along with them; we are simply along for the ride as witnesses! If only they’d get off their own unconscious ride to gain a new perspective or at least a new interpretation of the old perspective and to experience the incredible potential of these times.
Unfortunately even those who are a bit more liberal, a bit more philosophically and spiritually progressive can be stuck too. I had an argument with a friend of mine a couple months ago. He said something like this, “I’m on the team that is trying to rebuild the government and all of our systems in a new way, step by step, bit by bit. By keeping what exists we can make more appropriate changes.”
Jumping up and down, arms waving in the apparent breeze they created, I said, “Oh my God! What are you thinking? Are you insane?” Of course that put him on my page right away—NOT! “I’d put every law and system ever written, after the constitution was published, through a giant paper shredder!”
Sitting there in shock, he quietly said to me, “Wow, that’s sounds pretty destructive to me.”
Now seated, I was still jumping, this time out of my skin. I couldn’t figure out what was triggering me so deeply, and yet neither could I figure out why he wanted to fix an already severely broken system that no longer had any foundation in reality much less aligned itself with our founding Fathers ideals.
I wanted to apologize for my mania, yet thought better of it. Then I got in my car and drove home for the next 1.25 hours, thinking, feeling and reflecting on this wild hair that was poking my mid-brain.
By the time I reached my parking space, I got it. The light bulb went on.
“You absolutely cannot fix a world-wide, entrenched 3-D problem in the 3-D realm. You must go to a higher dimension to see it clearly, to tear it down to just the right degree and either replace or rebuild from there. Honestly, our founding Fathers were in such a place. They had perspective, and solid interpretive skills.”
That’s what I wrote to him on Facebook that night.
Watch out! Even the heart-felt, liberal minded people you know best are not exactly queued up to embrace how things really evolve. Remember, it took a whole different form of man to appear before humanity stepped up from its Cro-Magnon roots. A different brain, a different face, a different, much more evolved body! Neanderthal man couldn’t even hold his place during this evolution. He was the last in his lineage once the higher mind came into the picture.
Conscious Growth Templates
Some of us love to align ourselves with astrological events. Some of us are more interested in what the cards say about our future times or want desperately to believe in some benevolent group or force, or what the seasonal energies bring to us–like the change between night and day, or Fall and Winter. Many of us got caught up in the predictions for an Armageddon-like planetary shift in 2012. Others of us listen to everything that is said or written and then life becomes a sort of bipolar-ish reaction to way too much input from outside sources. In this instance it’s not about the “system,” it’s about how we are addicted to it at the expense of our inner voices.
The body is a sacred hologram imbued with the wisdom to heal itself on all levels, if only we’d find our way to the source of our problems. If we found that we’d also find the fix. By the way, just in case you’ve forgotten, your problems=world problems and vice versa.
And now I’m going to ice the cake for you. We only think we can heal our physical issues with physical processes. It’s why our medical realm is so successful financially and such an incredible failure on many other levels. Aren’t we supposed to know this already?!
Speaking of entrenchment, the medical industry is only one example of the deeply scarred, self-contained cycles (a more sophistcated version of the early hamster wheel) of destruction we’ve created here. What if everyone knew that we need to heal our etheric bodies and blueprints too, or first, or only? To me this is really the only growth point and using divining tools or astrological systems simply supports it and brings it all to the table for better understanding. What if we actually found that power inside of us, accessed and booted it up? That would be operating way outside the hamster cage.
In that event, I’d say the line to use my big-ole paper shredder would be very long!
The Mayan Calendar: Construct for an Inner Journey
The inner journey is not very popular, even amongst those who might define themselves as existentialists, spiritually motivated, on the path to enlightenment, or simply open-hearted. Why? Because, it’s really dark in there! Besides, it’s really easy to fake being on a spiritual path.
One of the less popularized growth templates indicates that we are in a time of deep internal reflection right now. Can you feel it?
Although the Mayan calendar–at least part of our recent interpretation of it–could be responsible for the mass increase in hyper-awareness and dramatic interpretations about “the Shift,” it also gives us a map to go within for our answers and our healing. Set up as a 260-day spiraling day keeper, the calendar outlines a constant state of spiraling into center and back out again through various portals into other dimensions.
And this year, it may not be co-incidental that the core of the annual Mayan calendar spiral falls in close alignment with both the Uranus-Pluto transit square in Aries on September 19-20; the seasonal appearance of the Dark Goddess in Celtic lore, and the Jewish High Holidays. The core of the Mayan calendar experience is September 11-October 30.
Rosh Hashanah is the anniversary of creation–think back to the Biblical reference to the 7 days it took God to create Heaven and Earth, Adam and Eve–and falls on on September 16-18 this year; Yom Kippur is the day of atonement, falling on September 25-26. The astrological transit has been coined by my favorite local astrologer as “shocking transformation.” The Dark Goddess refers to the times of going within, at New Moon, during the wee hours of the night, and in the Fall as our days become progressively shorter.
Mystic Column Days
On September 12th, we entered into the annual Mayan cycle of approximately 40-days during which we moved through 10 portals into a place called “time out of time.” Each portal is a day-long in our time. Once we’ve passed through the 10 portals, we sit for a few days at the entrance to the gateway that leads into the Mystic Columns which sit in the center of our Galactic Core.
For 20 days we continue to spiral even further into the deepest places of our super consciousness–our true core and human reflection of the Galactic Core vibration. After journeying in the land of Mystic Columns, we rest again for a few days on the other side of the gateway, and then spiral back out through the same 10 portals we entered on September 12th.
By the time we are finished this year, it will be October 30th, just in time to breathe for one day before All Hallows Eve and Samhain!
Samhain is the Celtic New Year, the time of our final harvest and a time during which we prepare for Winter. It is the beginning of our long journey inward, into the darkness of regeneration, seed germination and renewal. These tribal cultures–Jewish, Mayan and Celtic–all understood what it meant to truly be in the flow, to honor the natural cycles of the Earth.
Their rhythms were a reflection of the planetary rhythms and there were inherent times for complete surrender. At least once a year, and more likely every month, or every day in the most traditional sense of their beliefs, they went inside to speak with the Gods and Goddesses of their hearts, the Divinity as it was reflected inside of them.
So on Monday, October 15, 2012, you too will be spiraling out of the Galactic Core–where you’ve been fully supported in your self-inquiry–out to rest and integrate what you’ve found, what you’ve learned. On Sunday, October 21, 2012, you will begin making your way back through the 10 portals, bringing the new higher vibration into your life in our currently changing 3-D/4-D world.
It is your internal shifts, along with everyone else that was conscious on this journey, that will take the rest of the world into the 5th dimension and beyond. So even though it’s almost over, pay attention to these last several days inside the Mystic Columns. Become conscious of what you are finding, learning & creating. Bring it forth with intention and be one of those who sustains your evolution for the betterment of humanity.
By the way, I really do love astrology, numerology, divining and scrying. I just don’t want to make it a national past-time or count on it more than we count on our intuition and connection with the divine inside. And I really don’t want to buy an even more massive paper shredder to get rid of yet a different attachment to something unstable. Let’s just go willingly into the next phase of life, peacefully letting go of all that isn’t in service to our true essences.
In Great Gratitude for All Who Believe Without Seeing, Those Who See Without Agenda and Trust Where We Are Right Now!
