The Birthing of Christ Consciousness

2012 . . . the year most ancient civilizations foretold to be the end of civilization as we know it. And you can bet you will be hearing a great deal about it in conferences, magazines, cable shows, and of course, on the internet. But beyond all the hype, is there any truth to the 2012 message? Do human beings have anything to be concerned about? Were these ancient masters and shaman mistaken or perhaps exaggerating? It would seem the answer is no!
The earth’s geological and archeological records, as well as the channeled readings of Edgar Cayce, tell us that there are several past incidents wherein the earth experienced similar changes—an abrupt and violent ending to much of our ailing social, economic, religious, political, and even biological life. Chances are, these records of the past confirm the possibility of such an upheaval (or shift) occurring again in the future. “What kind of shift?” you might ask. Will it come by waves, comets, volcanoes or a shifting of the earth’s poles? The truth is, it doesn’t really matter. If any one of these occurs, the whole world will be affected hundreds of times more than any disaster in our known history.
This leads us to the old saying, “We have some bad news and some good news.” The bad news is that a change is coming! The earth and its inhabitants are indeed in grave danger. Even Jesus, who channeled to the scribe of A Course in Miracles, explained that “the condition of our world was worsening at an alarming rate” and that something needed to happen that would create a radical shift in humanity’s consciousness. Jesus referred to this period as a “Great Cosmic Speed-up.” He was referring to there being a way out . . . a way to prevent or at least ease the impending changes, but not by worrying about it or by having intellectual debates about it or even by preparing for some means to save your mortal self. Instead, he recommended the remembrance and nurturing of our Christ Consciousness.
So, what can you do? Since you will not out-run or avoid any of these changes, you might as well get your priorities straight. You do NOT need to worry about “saving your life,” as that is something that is beyond your control. Sure, it’s a wise thing to put some provisions together to make a few material alterations so that you and your loved ones are as comfortable as possible. But no amount of preparation will help you entirely, or for very long. A Hopi elder once told me that when the 2012 shift occurs, nearly half of the surviving population will go into a trance or sleep-like state—thus allowing these people time to acclimate to the changes around them. Another large portion of the people will struggle to try to bring things back to the way they were—a common reaction to trauma known as denial. And finally, there will be but a small percentage of inhabitants who will not be surprised by the changes and will step right into the role of assisting others with the change—the only proper response for a Lightworker or Healer.
The good news is that in the end, there is a reason for all of this. The sooner you understand this, the better. Although the year 2012 marks the end of our material world as we know it, it also marks the potential beginning of a Spiritual life. Rather than worrying too much OR trying to find a way to save yourself, why not nurture the part of you that is immune to all of these events. The 2012 shift was created by us even before the earth was created. We planted this and other large-scale shifts into our path as reminders to get our act together and remember who we really are—which will be done either the easy way or the hard way. The hard way means going through things like personal and global tragedies, which we’ve done before. The easy way is by hearing the call of Spirit that dwells within us and following Its Guidance to birth Christ Consciousness and nurture it into maturity. When we accomplish this, we need not fear the future but rather choose to see it as our joy-filled destiny. We will merely look at the storms of the world and say, BE STILL, just as Jesus calmed the storms of the sea.
In other words, the reason or cause behind these changes is the need to awaken the inner Christ. These events were created by Christ for the purpose of awakening Christ, just in case he/she went to sleep and forgot the purpose for the journey, which we did. So the alarm is about to go off. But rather than becoming afraid, let’s celebrate!
The birthing of Christ Consciousness is not to be confused with the return of Jesus or any other spiritual leader. In fact, it is just the opposite. Two thousand years ago, Jesus left his students and said, “I must leave you now or the comforter will not come to you!” He was explaining here, and in other teachings, that Christ is not a person to be worshiped, but rather, it is who you are. The “second coming of Christ” is not an external event, but an internal remembrance. Mother Mary was once pregnant with Jesus Christ, but we are all now pregnant with our own “inner Christ.”
Again, we are now in the time of humanity’s awakening and must all learn to live and act as the Divine Beings that we truly are. We have already entered the New Millennium and the era of Christ Consciousness. The time is at hand to hear the call and accept your role in humanity’s awakening. To experience this to its fullest, we must recognize our worthiness, act responsibly, and learn to become teachers of Love.
