Updated January 5, 2003


For the past month or so, change has been swirling all around us. Huge Swirling Change which envelops us in fast moving spirals of energy. Because of these swirling spirals, it's been rather difficult to see just where this change is leading us. We can definitely feel it affecting all aspects of our lives, but a clear picture of the outcome has remained elusive.

While we are being buffeted by the Winds of Change, we are being propelled to make some deep changes. We are in the process of rediscovering who we are and just as importantly, who we are not. Our beings have vastly shifted; we are no longer the same people that we used to be. This means that we have to take a fresh look at absolutely everything to see who we have now become. We'll be changing the food we eat, letting go of old patterns, resolving past issues. Our tastes, values, likes, dislikes, aspirations and dreams have been recalibrated.

During January we will get a clearer picture of what is important to us. Part of the process which we shall be undergoing will be experimental. We shall be trying out various things to see how they make us feel. At the same time, our options appear to be many, coming from myriad directions. This makes it confusing to make a clear decision.

Our feelings will be our truest barometer of the directions we should move towards. If there's a lightness and sense of joy, then it's a positive step. If it makes us feel heavy and tired, then we should definitely let that option go and try another direction.

When energy spirals in the billowing Winds of Change, it's virtually impossible to go in a straight line. So forget being pragmatic or logical or even very practical. The time that we're in isn't the "good old days" of normalcy. These are intense times when much is at stake on a planetary level and beyond. It calls for us to bring forth our greatness and step into our One Being.

In order to get to where we need to be, both inside ourselves and in our outer lives, we need to follow our dreams, Live Large, aim high and seek the impossible. Seek what you REALLY want. Not what others want for you. Not what you think is probably possible. Seek what you REALLY want..... Seek what your soul is calling out for.... Seek what your tender human Self wants.... Seek for your heart's deepest yearnings..... And you just might be surprised with what can be attained.

Another effect of spiraling energy and the inability to move in a linear fashion is manifested in things coming at us from multiple directions. This intense barrage usually happens when we least expect it. Suddenly, we are dealing with many different situations, all of which are demanding our full attention. Basically, this simply isn't possible within the confines of space and time; yet we don't have the option of picking and choosing what to turn our attention to. All of these seemingly unrelated issues must be dealt with simultaneously.

It's extremely challenging and definitely impossible, yet somehow we manage to do it. And in the process, our beings are expanded and we move deeper into the infinite NOW.

Throughout this wild time, we can't allow ourselves to get attached to any specific outcomes. An enlightened attitude of "Oh well, whatever...." is most helpful. Otherwise, we might delude ourselves into thinking that something specific is about to happen, when it might not be. This time is full of movements which appear to be real and coming towards us and then suddenly start spiraling away. All we can do is to sit back and watch it with openness and (hopefully) amusement. We need to be willing to move forward with our full beings, but not be disappointed if it doesn't happen. All just rerouting opportunities, remember?

So we can expect lots of missed connections and breakthroughs that almost happen. Promises that are not kept; people becoming waffly and not doing what they said they would do. It's almost as if there was a strange oscillation frequency which vibrates things closer to us and then spirals them further away. We would do well to remember that this is all OK; it's just a byproduct of the spiraling energy pattern we are moving through. Although it's strange, don't take it personally. It's not your fault! And everyone is being affected by this whether they are conscious of it or not.

Just when we start getting used to this strange pattern and acquire zero expectations and accept that nothing is as it appears to be, then the real breakthroughs will start pouring in. Good ones. Lasting breakthroughs. Ones which will make us really happy. How about that?

What else will we be experiencing this month?

Many of us feel a strong urgency to make a decisive move and get truly settled and fully functioning. This is a very real calling. We need to be in a place where we can operate at utmost efficiency and where our creativity can flower. It's very difficult to be in a transitional state during this time. It's similar to being a tree in a nursery whose roots are all tied up in a ball and covered with a burlap sack. It's almost impossible to spread our roots deep within the earth and grow, much less flower and have fruit, in such a condition.

This urge to settle for those of us who are unsettled is very powerful. The difficulty lies in choosing where to go and manifesting what's needed financially and otherwise to make the transition. But, although it may appear almost impossible to do this, it is not. In fact, the energies are propelling us to make the needed changes. Once we get clear as to our new direction, the path will open up for us and and the means to make our transition will miraculously manifest. And to get a clear direction, we only need to listen and feel.

Others of us are experiencing an almost crushing sense of heaviness and compression, almost as if you are being flattened. Whenever this happens, it is a definite sign that a dramatic change must take place SOON. The heaviness will not dissipate of its own accord. You must discover what needs changing or releasing and do it immediately. As soon as you do, you'll feel a burst of fresh energy come flooding in. So, it's definitely worth the effort.

All of us are in a stage of resolution of old issues. These issues must be completed before we can fully move on. The Good News is that all the spiraling energies, the nature of our Surf right now, are aiding us in this process.

January is going to be a very busy month full of an overload of activities. There is always too much to do, too many issues to deal with, for us to feel relaxed. We will also be dealing with sudden bursts of intense energy which will propel us into action. They are going to create a very Choppy Surf which will buffet us from many directions at once. This Choppy Surf is going to affect our digestive system and we might find it difficult to discover which foods are appealing to us or that when we do eat, we feel queasy and unsettled.

There will still be the occasional sinkhole to fall into. When we do, we will discover that each sinkhole becomes deeper and more intense. The Good News is that each time we emerge from a sinkhole, we will find ourselves reenergized and reborn.

Throughout the month, clues as to our future direction are going to come pouring in. By the Chinese New Year on February 1st, we will finally have a very clear picture as to our next step.

Don't Take Things Personally!
Please remember that many of us are experiencing similar things. It's not just happening to you. These are undeniably strange times. We must all constantly LOOK LARGER and see what is really going on.

Dive Deep & Discover Who You Are:
This is the time to get back in touch with our real Selves. To ask ourselves many questions such as, "Who am I?", "What makes me happy?" "What work do I really want to be doing?" & "How can I create the kind of life that I really want?"

Let Go & Become Freer:
Let go of all unnecessary activities, friendships and clutter. Strip everything down to what really resonates with your Core Being. Each time that we release something which has become weighty, we become lighter and freer.

Stay Positive By Remembering WHAT IS REALLY GOING ON:
We don't need to fear change. Yes, it is powerful and often totally beyond our control. Try to see change as exciting and as a renewal. When our old foundations crumble, it's time to build new ones.

Watch Out For Occasional Sinkholes :
Sinkholes are places where the ground suddenly sinks underneath our feet. Without warning, we find ourselves in a deep pit. When this happens, it's easy to get discouraged and depressed. However, this condition is only temporary. Be like water and keep your love flowing. Soon the sinkhole will fill up and you will be released.

Find Effective Ways To Deal With Stress:
When things get intense around us, it's easy to lose it and become stressed out. It's important that we find ways to deal with stress: Try hot baths, exercise, long walks, meditation, swimming, dancing, massage, gardening, spending the day in bed. Whatever it takes. Just be aware when your stress levels are rising and take immediate action.

Don't Buy Into Duality:
There are no "Good Guys" and "Bad Guys". There are no "Good Countries" & "Bad Countries". There are no "Good Religions" & "Bad Religions". There is only the One!

Continually Look Beyond Outer Appearances:
Nothing is as it appears to be. Step out of any residue of fear or anger and take a good, clear look at what is really happening. Don't take anyone's word on what is happening. Don't blindly follow authority figures. Figure it out for yourself from a place of vastness and all encompassing Love.

Strengthen Your Compassion:
There is simply not enough compassion on the Earth at this time. Many of us are feeling assaulted by the energies of anger and fear. It's a challenging time with duality running amok. This is exactly when compassion is most needed. Consciously become an embodiment of compassion. Be like the Sun which has no personal favorites and extend your compassion to all things equally.

Rerouting Opportunities Abound:
Whenever there are blockages or things don't happen quite as you would like them to, simply understand that things are being rerouted to bring them into alignment with the state of RIGHT TIME, RIGHT PLACE.

When New Doorways Open, Leap!... Then Leap Again:
There is no time to sit and ponder whether we should take these new opportunities which are being presented to us. If it feels right, do it. Leap! And then Leap Again!

Don't Try To Hold On To The Elements Which Are Going Out Of Our Lives:
Many people and situations are going to be leaving our lives. The resonance is shifting dramatically, making this a natural occurrence. Let go gracefully and wish them well.

Emptiness Is Good:
If you feel empty, embrace that feeling. It's a good thing and something which all of us experience when huge chunks of our old ways of being and doing things leaves our lives. This is a pregnant emptiness, a sacred place where we await the birth of the New.

Spend Time Each Day Embodying Your Vastness, Showering The Earth And All Its Inhabitants With Love:

Inhabit Our One Being At All Times:
As we consciously live in our One being, we nourish and strengthen the resonance of Oneness throughout the world.

We are creating the templates for our future now!
Enjoy this wild ride into the New.
Let's fearlessly love with our whole beings!
Be constantly open to the unexpected!
BE REAL, no matter what!
