Solar Flares: Shaking us Awake

The Video Version with Commentary is here

If you're feeling a little wired/exhausted/emotional/on edge, the Sun has released 3 X Class Solar Flares since Friday. October has been one of the most active Solar months in years with 22 M Class Solar Flares so far. 
For those wondering what's the difference between classes, flares are graded from least powerful A through to B, C, M or most powerful X class. Each class is ten times more powerful than the previous class, and has 9 grades of power, except X class which goes on without limit. These recent X-class flares have been in the X.1 and X.2 range.
People will say that the Sun has been more quiet than expected this year, and this has been true (until perhaps right now)– however our sensory awareness of solar activity has increased and our physical/emotional response to solar activity has definitely heightened – even for those who may not be aware of why they are feeling how they are feeling.
Over the last few years we have all become increasingly sensitive to solar activity, feeling it on physical, mental, emotional and energetic levels. These flares are playing an integral role in waking us up: triggering aspects of ourselves that we need to address, confront, acknowledge, be aware of, make peace with, transform, activate, use, or release.
Each flare, or series of flares, seems to come with a ‘theme’. Currently the ‘theme’ feels to be revolving around remembering our potential (as individuals and as a society/humanity), and actively wanting to use and express it.  We are being made aware of potent energy we all hold that allows us to live our lives differently, if we so choose it.  Thus we are no longer able to tolerate old patterns around restriction whether that be global and societal issues related to freedom, or personal issues around work fulfilment, how much joy/abundance/love etc you allow yourself to receive and feel you/we all deserve.
We have outgrown our old boxes. We are pushing through old ceilings. We are seeing where we have kept ourselves small, and less than. We are heading into territory where we will look back and not be able to relate, at all, to who we used to be, and how we used to be. We will think ,“We accepted that? We tolerated that? Whether ‘that’ is an old internal belief, or an external authority, it’s all up for an overhaul. Where past flares, and years, have made us more aware of why and how we've held ourselves back, now the emphasis feels to be more and more on 'more' - on how much 'more' of ourselves we can become, on the expansion that is available to us. We are re-connecting with feelings of motivation and passion after those feelings going awol for quite some time - only our renewed passion may be for new areas and interests previously unexplored with old dreams falling by the wayside as no longer feeling like a right match for us.  For some, long given up on dreams may be returning, only this time with new beliefs that 'yes it can happen!'.
Some people are quite rightly questioning whether the old power structures are actually on the way out when we still see so much evidence around us that old ways are still running the show – or at the least trying to. I want to speak directly to the concern people have regarding the “Powers that be” and the Global elite. People are highly sceptical that the so called 1% and those working in the shadows for their own gain, at the cost of the majority of humanity, will so easily let go of their grip on power. Here is the thing: Power of this nature, over-powering the masses, relies on either forcing compliance on others (various forms of slavery) or manipulating people into compliance (making it so that people are not aware they are being over-powered, or believe that’s just how it is, and there’s nothing we can do about it). As we wake up the grip that this power has had over us lessens. We are no longer buying what is being sold. We are pulling the plugs out of the old systems with every viewing choice, purchasing choice, habit choice, lifestyle choice, opinion and comment choice, thought choice, ‘share on facebook’ choice and so on that we make. We are putting our plugs into new sockets, and as we do so the old systems cannot help but collapse or be called to transform. The old powers can hold onto their old reins as tightly as they like, but if everyone is letting go of the rope from the other end and moving on to greener pastures, well, they will be left holding limp reins eventually.
This is our time of choosing. The greener pastures are available to us, and we are here this lifetime to know that they are available to us. We are here to know we have the right, the capabilities and the resources to create them and expand them so that they are available to everyone. This may seem like an idealistic dream and from the perspective of our current reality and recent history, it sure can seem like an impossible one. Yet for future generations, that is surely the reality we want to strive to pass on to them?  My vision is that my grandchildren will turn around and say, “Back in the olden days grandma, when the world had war, what was that like?” War will seem as barbaric to them as the Roman Gladiator days are now to us.
So as the Solar Flares shake us up like a cocktail mixer, be thankful. Better to be shaken and awakened than…not.

For anyone still asking "When is Ascension going to happen?"

The Video Version with Commentary is here 

This question came in from Richard* (name changed) about 'ascension'. I'm sharing it here for anyone who has the same concerns. 


I have been reading several ascension blogs. Most of them have info that humanity would ascend on 21 DEC 2012 and since then the dates simply kept on changing and even the so called channeled info from higher dimensional beings and ascended masters is wrong so many times.
Just don't know what to believe anymore and like so many other readers and followers I am more than frustrated to just keep waiting for a date and when nothing happens then conveniently some new date comes up and this has been going on for so long. So my question is if we are going to ascend at all then when do you think its gonna happen? If it is so difficult to give a date then is it possible to atleast give a time frame? So many people who are working as channelers and light workers, how hard can it be to just get a date?


From my perspective, and what I've been saying in my writings for over 10 years, is that 21 Dec 2012 is the end of an evolutionary cycle, and then a new evolutionary cycle started. According to many indigenous cultures, particularly the Mayans, we have just completed a great cycle of approx. 25000 years and also a grand cycle of approx. 125000 years made up of 5 great cycles. 

The way that I have always seen it is, Earth at this time has entered, and is moving deeper into right now, a place in space where she is essentially being flooded by high vibrational energy waves, of a higher frequency than those waves that we were exposed to in our last cycle. From what I have received and seen and felt, these waves are coming to us from the galactic centre, while Earth is moving across the Galactic equator, thus offering us a very rare window of alignment with that central energy - although that could just be one part of a much larger picture. The messages I've received indicate that the waves are also coming to us from the centre through the sun, and thus we are so much more sensitive these days to relatively 'common' solar activity events such as the solar flares.

The general message that has come through me, over and over again, is that Earth and all on her are shifting into this higher frequency energy, and everything that is not in alignment with that (whether within us, in our personal lives, in our society, corporations, goverments, media etc) will go through a process of collapse or transformation.  We can see that happening now. As we shift into this higher frequency, we are experiencing the awakening of more of our greater/star/collective memory, opening up to our innate gifts, becoming more conscious and seeking to embody and express that consciousness in every way and in every area of life. Again, we are seeing that now in more and more people.

I have spent time with both Mayan and Native American elders, and they all have confirmed that they too see the Shift in a similar way to the above. I don't resonate with the 'Ascension' theory that all the 'awake' people will be beamed up somewhere.  We are shifting 'upward' yes, but we are shifting in vibration, in our body, here on Earth.  I also never resonated with the idea being sprouted out there that we'd all magically 'ascend' on one day. If you know anything of astrology, transits of slow moving planets can affect us over a period of months or years, not just on one day - so times that by 1000 for an evolutionary cycle gear-shift - The Shift is a process, and we are in it right now. And for sure, it has shifted gears since 'that date'.

Dec 21 2012, aside from being the end date of a cycle, was something I always saw as a crossroads of sorts, a deadline by which we really had to decide, as a collective, whether we would shift up or shift out. Really, those were the choices - shift up with the Earth as she moved into the higher vibration (ie wake up, and act on our consciousness) or shift out - game over for humanity. We have been called to change our ways, and through the massive numbers we are seeing this year alone signing online petitions and marching in street protests against governments etc, I believe we are hearing that call. Interestingly enough the ancients referred to the point in space that Earth is moving through now, a point they knew she moved through at each change of cycle period, as a crossroads.

Yes it's an anti-climax for anyone expecting a literal light to come out of the sky or the spaceships to finally land. Life is a mystery, and to be honest no-one knows if any of those things will happen one day! But there is no 'waiting' for another date. We are here, we have gone through labour, the birth as such is happening now, and now we have to work with the energies of a newborn at the same time as many are struggling to let go of their old roles and ways of being which no longer fit or work. In many other ways, it is climax after climax on a weekly (and sometimes daily) basis if we are to look at the awakening going on right now, the physical ways in which it is manifesting in our society, and the way in which we can literally feel, and are being affected by, the higher energies now present here and continually increasing to flood the planet.  Many are also experiencing a 'post-natal' depression of sorts - their old roles are over, the 'date' which many had focused on for so long has come and gone, and now we are left with ...what exactly?

We are now left with the reality that we are responsible for our reality here. We decide how this story unfolds. We choose what this next chapter will look like. We are finally being offered all the resources and tools we need to create a new type of Earth with a new type of Humanity. We are being offered the gifts of awakening, consciousness and greater awareness as to who we really are and what we are here to do. A small group of people have been open to those gifts thus far, but now it is happening to millions and millions of people.  These gifts are not here so that we can meditate longer, they are here so that we can embody them and use them.  Action without consciousness has led us to a fragile crossroads. Consciousness without action will leave us frustrated and feeling disempowered. It is the combination of consciousness and action that are the markers of this new time - action meaning anything you choose to consciously do to embody who you truly are. Focused Visualisation or Prayer can be an active expression of consciousness - action doesn't mean we all need to be on the streets protesting.

On a final note, the word "Apocalypse" so much associated with these times, comes from the Greek and Latin word meaning 'lifting of the veil', 'that which was hidden to be revealed'. We are seeing this now constantly within us, and in our outer world. What we are seeing isn't always easy - in fact it can be challenging, uncomfortable and downright shocking and disturbing. Yet the 'revelations' part of this process is essential, empowering and liberating. We are being roused out of our slumber, and confronting that which has held us back and limited us, both personally and as a humanity.
