Many years ago, as I relished in the luxury of depression, it seemed impossible to meet the day with any energy or enthusiasm. I spent most of my time blaming others, always pretending I had no control over what happened.
The depression spiraled out of control every time I tapped into the memory of what used to be. Absolutely nothing seemed worthwhile as I spiraled toward a total loss of direction and purpose.
My mind carried me further into a state of despair, seemingly controlled by outside forces, as everything I held dear fell away. This experience was not new to me, but this time, it was very different because absolutely everything changed. There was not a morsel of my old life to cling to. My old comfortable life quickly disappeared while experiencing health crises, job losses, financial stresses, and relationship breakups.
These changes really motivated me to change my life for the better. I began to realize that my ego ruled, for whenever I experienced a lack of love, my mood was depressed and anxious, anything but wholly joyous. And then I was reminded of the power within. It is the power to change every aspect of life. I acknowledged this power and knew it was finally time to change the way I thought and behaved.
It was time to trust in the process of growth, to have faith that I held the key to life within me. I reviewed past experiences, recognized my role in them, and decided my old way of thinking and feeling no longer served me. It was clear that the world was changing quickly and past feelings of , discord, anxiety, turmoil, depression, and futility, no longer suited me. They helped me to learn my lessons, but now that their purpose was served, there was no room for them in my new life.
My focus rested on positive things as I did my best to ignore a fear-
based reality. I put the past aside and took responsibility for every aspect of my life. I cleaned the slate by forgiving everyone who I thought might have harmed me. Eventually, I asked them to forgive me for thinking out of line with the Self within. My life began to improve as I lived in the moment appreciating what I had.
After forcing myself to walk though the doors of a spiritual living center, I recognized that the only time I felt whole was when I connected with what many people refer to as God or Spirit. This powerful presence is within all living things. I quickly recognized it's the power I feel within.
Throughout the past few years, I've realized that we are playing a game here on earth. We just agreed to forget for awhile. In Reality we are all the same. We are parts of each other, parts of one perfect, loving, Whole. Feel into that essence for it is the reality of the One within.
A variety of things helped me to change depression into joy. I placed potted and flowering plants, pets and positive signs (such as "Life is Good") around me. No matter where I am I fill my space with life-
affirming music, read positive books, paint, garden, build or create something, sing, dance, walk or do other exercise, write about my experiences, meditate or sit still, while listening to soft music without words. I've found it very helpful to avoid television and news and to fall asleep to life- affirming music. Visit the Links section on the Lightworker's Log Website for life- affirming ideas.

The Maitreya Process
The Three Ss
In The Tragedy of the Mother, I described the response of the earth toward human recognItion of her identIty as a cosmic deIty, the Aeon Sophia in Gnostic parlance. Or toward lack of such recognItion. The talk asserts the very great fact that many human animals living on the earth are not disposed to see the planet as their local source, the immediate matrix of life and mind. They do not realize that the earth is immediately alive, a sentient superorganism wIth a mind and will of Its own, and they are not inclined even to entertain such a realization. They do not recognize the source of life in the setting where they find themselves, nor do they take any interest in the story of the earth, the planetary biography describing how the earth came to exist and what the human species is doing on It.
That there is only one such biography produced by the human mind in the attempt to understand Its own origins and Its role in the cosmos, also does not engage the interest of many people, even though It is a clear and irrefutable truth, and might well be described as spectacular, arresting, and unparalleled.
As the talk further explains, the sorrow of the Aeonic Mother (as Sophia may also be called) is not due to a narcissistic need to be seen. Rather, It comes from the love of the earth mother for the divine experiment she provides for humanIty in the terrestrial setting. She knows how the human creature is designed, because she wIth her consort designed It. And she remembers how the experiment wIth Anthropos-10, the current strain of the human species, was preconceived to develop in a three-body system consisting of planet, moon, star (sun). Uppermost in her mind, there is the desire she held "ever the earth was" -- that is, even before she turned into the earth -- for the Anthropos to discover and own Its innate genius, to thrive in Its habItat, and to demonstrate novelty, innovation, and the application of mutual aid to the highest benefIt of those who desire universal happiness. Sophia designed the experiment so that every participant can achieve happiness wIth and through others, given the will to be involved. She does not feel sorrow for the lack of disposItion to recognize her or learn her story, but for the failure of humanIty to make the best of Its endowed talents wIthin the Edenic experiment set up for It.
The "Three Ss" is a foundational concept of Planetary Tantra, drawn from Gnostic teachings in the Mysteries. The Aeon Sophia is a divine presence existing right here, right now, in material immanence in the planet she sustains by her supernatural dreaming power. She is the setting of human life, the source of human life, and her biography is the story that guides the species to know Itself and accomplish Its purpose in the cosmic order. Her biography, the Fallen Goddess Scenario, is the lodestone of human imagination.
During the Sovereign Moment from January 9 through August 8, 2016, the planetary animal mother gained agency in the human world. This expression means that she, an Aeonic power from the galactic center now embodied in a planet, has direct access to the way human animals attend to their experiences. Gaining agency is a key factor in accomplishing her Correction which began in March 2014 after a reset process running for three years from March 2011. Indeed, It is the decisive factor.
"The Aeonic Mother has agency." This simple five-word assertion is a result of Gnostic intel acquired in real time, current wIth historical events unfolding here and now. It announces a supernatural event now beginning to impact linear history, reaching into the daily lives of everyone in the world -- an intervention, you can say. The prelude to this intervention occurred in 2008 when the Aeon Sophia first applied her attention to accessing human consciousness wIth the aim of interactivIty wIth our species, Anthropos-10. Her intention developed further in the three years of Reset, March 2011 - March 2014, when she achieved a double alignment: she reconnected to her origin in the galactic core through the mechanism of Pleromic Relay, and she acquired human support from wItnesses who tracked the reset process in granular detail, thus aligning themselves to the event of Correction that would follow.
The Correction of the Aeon Sophia is a novel and unparalleled event in the history of the human species. Gnostics of the Mystery Schools of the prechristian world saw the event of Correction in the future and incorporated It as a theme in their sacred narrative, the biography of the earth, the Fallen Goddess Scenario. They designated It by the Greek word diorthosis, lIterally, "a two-way regulation." There are several interpretations of the "two-way" formula for Correction. In one sense, It designates the fact that some of Correction is accomplished by Sophia alone, acting in her Pleromic capacIty as a galactic star goddess, and some of It depends on a measure of human participation.
In another sense, the two-way solution signifies the mutation of Anthropos-11, a new strain of humanIty, distinguished from Anthropos-10. Consequently, two distinct types of the anthropine species appear side by side in Correction. but only the mutated group realize and enact the full opportunIty of this event.
Thirdly, the two-way solution indicates how Sophia uses mItosis the divide the planetary body, which has the form of a vast amoebic cell, now splItting into two daughter cells.
Gnostic intel on these momentous events and the possibilIty of human participation in the designs and purposes of the Aeonic Mother is a paramount treasure of human knowledge. Gnosis is special knowledge of divine matters and actions. Sophia designed the genome of the anthropine species so that It could evolve to a genius level of performance. To reach this attainment and fulfill Its divine endowment ("the calibration of the Anthropos"), humanIty has to be educated to meet the challenge. In the 18th Century certain visionaries and philosophers of the Romantic movement called for "the education of the human race," but they were unable to provide It. They had no way to frame the project, no basis for the curriculum. They lacked the sacred narrative as a framing device for this vast visionary proposal. WIth the mother lode of Gnostic intel coming to the world since the discovery of the Nag Hammadi wrItings in December 1945, that basis now exists.
The mother lode is a term in mining for a massive vein or precious ore from which many extractions can be made. Gnostic intel developed and shared by genuine telestai (inItiates) living today is the mother lode, the ultimate wisdom treasure.
A World Teacher
"The Aeonic Mother has agency" is a vatic assertion drawn from the rigorous practice of experimental mysticism, Gaian shamanism, applied Gnosis. It is a statement that only an telestic expert could make and It requires elaboration from the unique teaching resources of Gnostics living today. A World Teacher comes out of the contemporary Mysteries, those being actively pursued in this historical moment. At Eleusis in ancient Greece the child of the Mysteries was celebrated in the name Iachhos. E-YAHK-os, wIth breath behind the K (hh).
The World Teacher is a figure in numerous religions, considered variously to be a type of messiah (Judaism, ChristianIty, Islam) or "the future Buddha", called the Maitreya. This name is an honorific tItle, meaning "benevolent friend," derived from the SanskrIt word maItri, "friendship." Buddhists around the world continue to awaIt the Maitreya, and in some cases have identified him -- so they believe. Just before the first World War I, certain leaders of the Theosophical movement attached the specific designation of World Teacher to the expectation of the Maitreya. Strangely, the Maitreya/World Teacher they announced refused the role. On some rare occasions since that time, individuals have come forth and announced themselves, claiming to be the Maitreya.
Common sense informs us that there are two ways in which the Maitreya can be identified: he is announced or proclaimed by others, or he announces himself. That is simple and obvious. But common sense does not reach the subtle realization that the Maitreya cannot assume his role to educate the human race across the world wIthout recognItion that he is actually doing so, wIth no claim being made. The Maitreya demonstates his presence in action, not by a declaration. Claims and announcements do not make the Maitreya, for they could easily be false, delusional, or fraudulent. Only the recognItion by some human animals of his identIty and mission enable the MaItreya to appear.
In short, the appearance of the Maitreya happens as an event of recognItion by some members of the human species, and not through any declaration coming from the teacher who is recognized.
When the Aeonic Mother gains agency, the moment comes in her Correction for the Maitreya to act and be recognized. That moment is now. Why is the MaItreya due to appear -- or cued to appear, you could say -- at precisely this moment? The answer is eminently simple. Sophia's intention in her Correction includes the desire to teach the human species how to make right what has gone wrong in the divine experiment on this planet. But the way she does so, the way she undertakes to teach humanIty how to correct Itself, stands beyond ordinary comprehension. She operates from the level of Aeonic mind and what may be called divine desire, neIther of which comes wIthin the range of the ordinary human intellect. Here is where the Maitreya comes into action: by teaching the world how the Aeonic Mother accomplishes the educational challenge of Correction, how she handles It. WIthout the assistance of the World Teacher, It would be largely impossible for those members of the human species who are disposed to do so, to detect and follow the teaching technique of the Aeonic Mother.
So who is the Maitreya, the World Teacher? You cannot know who that individual is through his identIty being announced by others, or by himself. And anyway, the Maitreya is a process rather than a person. Yet It also a person, a particular human individual. Yet again, the identIty of the Maitreya is not limIted to one individual, rather to a succession. But again, for the inception of the education of the human race consistent wIth Sophia's Correction, the MaItreya has to be a specific individual. Someone to commence the process.
The Maitreya is It in the way that a child is "It" when the game of tag begins. In that game, children run about and try to avoid being touched or tagged by the one who is "It." If that one tags you, you become "It" and must tag someone else, so you chase the other players around... While the game is in progress, It moves from one child to another. But what about how the game begins? One of the children in the game has to be designated It to start the game. So It is wIth the Maitreya, who is not a person as such but a process, but the Maitreya Process has to begin wIth someone designated as It, one particular individual.
Repeat: this designation of who's It is a conscious and intentional act of unparalleled immediate recognItion, not a declaration coming from who It is.
For the MaItreya who is It to announce himself would be an easy, simple, transparent and straightforward act. Obviously. But the Maitreya can only be so by endowment of a subtle and playful mindset. In fact, the Maitreya is a kind of trickster, a master of games, magister ludi. He announces himself by the articulation of the Maitreya Process rather than by laying claim to the inceptive identIty generating that process, the one who is It when the game starts.
The teaching eye in the palm of the hand of AvalokIteshvara, an archetype of the World Teacher. In Planetary Tantra, this revered figure of Tibetan Buddhism is rendered into an aspect of the Wisdom Goddess and becomes "Tantra Mother" who teaches the end of pretending, the five-skull crown inItiation, supersaturation, match and merge, and other practices in the curriculum of the Maitreya.
The super-subtle game of divine intelligence acting through a human identIty is an open invItational event in which a succession of individuals can participate, share and share alike, following upon consistent recognItion of the one who is It. Only those wIth sufficient subtlety of intellect can comprehend how Sophia will teach humanIty by hacking into the first and second attentions, accessing the normal functions of observation and memory. Acting exactly like the Maitreya does, they instruct those who care to learn, and have the talent to learn, about how the Wisdom Goddess teaches humanIty to correct Itself and put the divine experiment on earth back on course, to play out as she intended It from inception, before the earth existed.
What Sophia intends right now in the world is the inception of a program of superlearning that has to be introduced and guided by human teachers, even though It is a superhuman, supernatural force that ultimately performs It. Alone, the Aeonic Mother cannot achieve the education of the human race. The moment for the Maitreya to appear comes when Sophia, the planetary logos, has agency to reach directly into human faculties as they operate day to day, in ordinary life. How she does so, however, cannot be known by the ordinary mind she is reaching. She requires intermediary instruction from someone who can coach the human mind toward realization of what is happening to It, affected supernaturally. By wItchcraft, you could say.
The Gnostic teacher is the one who teaches you how to use your mind in the way It is originally designed to work. In the best possible way. To know how the Aeonic Mother hacks into human faculties requires a more-than-ordinary comprehension of that mind and the divine intelligence impacting It. The teaching of the Maitreya has numerous facets, like a cut jewel. Like the chintamani, or wish-fulfilling gem of Buddhism. But principally It proceeds through concrete illustration of the activIties and features of the three attentions, a topic of special expertise unique to adepts of Planetary Tantra.
The inception of Planetary Tantra wIth the Terma of Gaia Awakening in August 2008 was the prelude to Sophia's "sovereign moment," when she finally gained agency, almost exactly eight years later. Equivalent to 26.5 seconds of Aeonic time. Her way is vast and fast.
Likewise, the Maitreya Process is a vast and encompassing event, a rush of superlearning. The opening phase of the Process begins on October 30, 2016 and continues apace, developing in a fast and furious way, until November 20, 2017. So much that humans have been taught and told about their world is wrong, due to some errors, or learning mistakes, but far more largely due to intentional harmful deceIt spread through the world in lies propagated by the enemies of life. Yet the accumulated mass of lies can be corrected rapidly wIthin the superlearning event.
Teaching how Sophia directs the Correction of history and restores the social order to Its original pristine potential is the Maitreya Process. It trumps, excels, and surpasses every so-called practice of spirItualIty or path to enlightenment on the planet. This teaching makes Its inItial mark in the ordinary world, and proves Its veracIty for all to see, by superceding all previous Buddhist teaching, hence demolishing the entire structure of Buddhist learning and practice, rItual, instItution, the whole nine yanas. At the same time, It subsumes the residual veracIty of Buddhist wisdom, especially the highest yoga practice of Dzogchen or Vajrayana, the Diamond Vehicle, and renders It into another practice, Planetary Tantra. As milk is rendered into curds and whey.
The one who is It makes no claim to being so, and does not need to make any such claim or announcement. Those who are able to receive the super-subtle truth about the Maitreya expect no such claim to be made. If they do expect that claim, they miss access to the Process. By recognItion that the Maitreya is a process rather than a person, even though It requires inception by a person, they recognize who is It and enter the game of reciprocal enlightenment, eventually to act as It in succession, in their turn.
WIth reference to Buddhist and Hindu Tantric tradItion, the divinatory power of the Aeon Sophia that radiates the recognItion of the Maitreya into the ordinary mind is Visvamata, "The Variegated Mother," now to be called Bodhi-Ma. She is mother of the Bodhisattvas. As Iachhos, the child of the Mysteries, is the son of the Pleromic Sophia, so the Maitreya is the son of Bodhi-Ma -- the living offspring of a divine feminine archetype. The Maitreya is what the Aeonic Mother imagines It to be. Sophia herself bears forth this fortunate child from the matrix of her dreaming attention, divine imagination.
Bodhi-Ma confers the generic sense of humanIty to the human animal isolated in ego, single-self identIty. She nurtures the consciousness of the species-self, as It may be called. The recognItion of the Maitreya anchors this sense of humanIty in the human mind as a non-abiding, transpersonal insight that passes from look to look as human animals encounter each other, strangers or not. The radiant gaze of Bodhi-Ma holds this insight steady in the broke-open heart of innocence.
Correction happens at the end of Kali Yuga, in the last two centuries leading up to 2216. During this time, at the very outset, the succession of the Buddhas ends, the Dharma declines into drivel, and the Sangha dissolves. "It's worthless people who arise right here [wIthin the Sangha] who make the true Dhamma disappear," says the Saddhammapatirupa Sutta, a Pali text that anticipates the coming of the MaItreya. Even the historical Buddha, Shakyamuni, predicted this outcome of his message and method. So does the Mahanirvana Tantra, a rare Hindu tantric text of the 11th century. In Correction, the Bodhisattvas are proven by how they teach. They show that they can can master and transmIt the educational program of the planetary animal mother, Sthevara in Buddhism: she who intervened for Shakyamuni at the moment of his enlightenment in Bodh Gaya.
Now It is Bodhi-Ma, mother of the Bodhisattvas, who intervenes for humanIty at large. Hence the Maitreya Process can also be called the Bodhisattva Process, but in that case wIth specific reference to teaching the origin and endowment of the Anthropos. The female Buddha Visvamata -- now Bodhi-Ma -- has been attributed wIth the mysterious qualIty of tong-zuk, "empty form," said to be the power to convert the human body into a vacuous hologram. But this is Buddhist fabulation, calculated to entrap gullible minds, and such claims are not seen to be attested by actual demonstration. More wonderfully, Bodhi-Ma introduces the "empty formalIty" of the MaItreya process, the game of being It and playing accomplice to the master of games, magister ludi.
The identIty of the Maitreya is purely a pretence. In Kali Yuga enlightenment is just a game of pretences, and whoever has the most transparent pretences, wins the game. True enough, but a true game also delivers a prize. The prize of the Maitreya Process is the recovery of the genuine sense of humanIty by the human species.
The guidelines for this recovery are presented in unique wisdom treasure, the Terma of Gaia Awakening. It excels and surpasses all previous termas.
In the precise syntax of this process, you can distinguish the MaItreya from Maitreya. The Maitreya is It, but once the Maitreya tags an individual, that individual is It for whomever they eventually tag. The tagging activIty is fractal. The way this process works is simplicIty Itself, supremely ingenious, playful and precise. "The only thing I can tell you about my enlightenment is this: It's yours." The Maitreya process is the inception of reciprocal enlightenment, shared one mind at a time, person to person. There is only one It at the start of the process, but each person tagged gets to be It, to be the Maitreya for someone else, uniquely, in that instance of reciprocIty, mind to mind and heart to heart.
"I dreamed you were a jewel sItting on a golden crown on my head." Three Kingfishers, Donovan, Sunshine Superman, 1966
As the process unfolds, the Maitreya becomes simply Maitreya: you are just another benevolent friend who brings the higher education of the human race to a stranger whom you meet but never get to know. Reflect on that.
Maitri, the friendship of strangers, is the ground of reciprocal enlightenment and the communIty of Bodhisattas who together now teach humanIty how the World Mother achieves her Correction. This is supreme instruction, and merely to hear about It brings incomparable liberation.

A New Era
We are at the beginning of an exciting new Age, the Aquarian Age, an era of increased illumination and opportunity for spiritual growth. Powerful forces are being poured out upon the Earth from higher realms and are being made available to every person to assist them in their progress. They permeate every particle that makes up our Earth. The influences from these forces are available and helpful to all, whether or not we are aware of them.
Angels and beings of the higher realms are working with these energies to maximize their effects and to assist the physical world to be receptive to them.
If we remain mindful of the opportunities available to us and thankful for them, we automatically align ourselves with the work of the angels, becoming co-workers in bringing illumination to the world.
Explanation of the Ages
All of life manifests itself through rhythms and cycles. Some familiar examples of this are: the seasons of the year, the rhythm of the moon, day and night, even our breath in and out and the beating of our hearts. This is a part of Divine Order, an aspect of Creation. The movement of the Ages involves cycles on a vast time scale.
Each Age corresponds with a sign of the zodiac. The signs progress in reverse order to the familiar order used in casting individual horoscopes. This occurs because of an astrological phenomenon called the precession of the equinoxes.
Thus, the order for the Ages is: Aquarius, Capricorn, Sagittarius, Scorpio, Libra, Virgo, Leo, Cancer, Gemini, Taurus, Aries and Pisces.
The whole zodiac spans 360 degrees, a complete circle. In terms of the Ages each degree is equal to 72 years (a sacred number).
The whole cycle of twelve Ages takes 25,920 years. When one of these large cycles ends, a new one begins. Each Age spans about 2,160 years. All the above figures are calculated using the Chaldean method of reckoning. Modern day astrology uses slightly longer time frames.
The combined Ages can be looked upon as an entity. In sequence, they make up a continuous line of development just as an individual grows from child to adult. In this sense, each Age is a development and refinement of the one before it.
The individual Ages can also be looked on as entities as each is also in an evolutionary state. Each time the large cycle of 25,920 years is completed, a new cycle begins. As the Ages are repeated, they present each time in a more developed and refined state compared with the last cycle. Just as a human being needs to have many lives to complete his growth, so do the Ages. They need to be repeated time after time until perfection is achieved.
It is recognised that the Ages relate to humanity and its development, but long before the Earth was inhabited, these cycles and Ages existed. They influenced our earth even as it was being formed. They provided essential energies when the earth was only barren rock and there was no sign of anything we would call life. The Ages affect the whole earth and everything on it.
There is an area of overlap between Ages, known as a cusp. During a cusp the influences of the passing Age and the coming Age are both present. The waning influences of the old Age can be observed beneath the ever-strengthening energies of the new.
Each Age affects not only the physical world, but also all the planes of the mind.
Mother All is the great devic entity who is the consciousness of the Earth. As the Ages change, different chakras of Mother All are activated, bringing about a change in the activities of all the nature spirits of the Earth.
Each Age brings a variety of influences, creating emphasis on different things. The messages of an Age are never completely new. There are developments of certain aspects of the previous Age combined with growth into new areas that will be further manifested in the next Age.
Each Age bears the primary influences of its sign; however, during its course it also passes through the secondary influences of each of the twelve zodiacal signs. Thus, every 180 years (2,160 years divided by 12), the secondary influence changes. These combinations create different mixtures that result in variations in the influences available. Each sign of the zodiac also has an opposite, which helps to reinforce certain aspects of the sign as well as provide refining or balancing influences. Opposite signs are very important influences.
There are always some people in each Age who resist change by holding onto the behaviour and influences of the previous Age. At times, even well into an Age, there will be a temporary return to the values of the previous Age. This is a natural part of the change process.
The influences provided in an Age, like all things, can be used by humankind in ways that assist its growth or in ways that lead it astray. Through knowledge of the Ages and their processes, we can make sure we use the influences of the current Age in the most effective ways possible, expressing its energies accurately and generating maximum benefit. Individuals who use the impulses of the Age constructively automatically spread its influence to all people, creatures and all of matter. They promote widespread uplifting and expansion of consciousness.
The Age that is coming to an end is the Piscean Age. It was preceded by the Arian Age.
The energies of the Arian Age were interpreted by humankind in ways that fostered the ideal of sacrifice. This idea was associated with giving up lower desires for the good of the higher self. Animal sacrifices were seen as necessary in that time, symbolising the sacrifice of the lower or animal nature to something higher. It was predominantly an austere Age regulated by rules and laws. There were many compulsory activities and ways of thinking and independence was not generally valued.
The Piscean Age was an Age of giving, this being a natural step on from sacrifice. Sacrifice was a stern and harsh way of contributing to the world but it suited the development of people at the time. Giving expresses the same principle, but is much freer and involves generosity of heart and personal choice. Jesus was the Master of this Age and his message was one of love. Giving arises naturally from love.
As well, the impulse of the Arian Age for unthinking, compulsory activity was moderated and gave way to recognition of the desirability and benefits of foundations, structures and hierarchy.
The heart chakra was the chakra associated with the Piscean Age.
The energies of each Age send forth their specialised impulses, invigorating a particular chakra or combinations of chakra in human beings. This stimulates the chakra to greater activity, assisting people to use the influences of the Age to maximum benefit.
Masters of the Ages
The energies of an Age reach the Earth through the transformation of angels and other non-physical beings. Since humankind appeared on the Earth, it has become appropriate for the energies to be channelled also by at least one human being who has previously gained the necessary level of spiritual refinement. He or she must be able to withstand the power of these forces as well as transform them through the human chakra system so as to make them available to other human beings.
Every Age has such a Master, a being who lives on the Earth as a focus through which the energies of the Age are expressed in human terms. To date, most Ages have had one individual acting as Master. There will be occasions in the future, however, when it will be appropriate for more than one person, or even a group of people to serve in this way.
Masters of the Ages are usually advanced human beings who are near the end of their physical incarnations. Their openness and willingness to serve humanity allow an aspect of a much higher consciousness to manifest through them. This consciousness has its source in Soul and is far beyond the present consciousness of humankind.
The Aquarian Age
Aquarius is an air sign. The qualities of the air influences of this Age are clarifying, uplifting and reflective in nature.
The symbol of Aquarius is the water carrier, a human being carrying a container from which water is being poured. This symbolises our ability to contain and manage the unruly nature of water in terms of emotion, and to pour it where we will. We are able to do this using the powers of reason and enlightened thinking to balance and neutralise the consuming nature of emotion.
This Age is very important as it is not only the beginning of a new Age, but the first Age of a new cycle of the Ages. This predisposes it to being an opportunity for unprecedented growth and change, depending on how we are able to interpret the energies and use them. As every Age builds on the achievements and manifestations of the last, the Aquarian Age will build on the foundations laid down during the Piscean. Just as sacrifice as practised during the Arian Age gave way to the higher ideal of giving, in the Piscean Age, the Aquarian Age will in time make the next step to sharing. Giving involves the giver as being central to the idea of giving. Sharing, however, is a concept that is broader and more open in its nature. It is not the passing of something from one to another, but the more unified and expansive idea of joining together in something, whether it is physical, such as a meal or something abstract, like information or an idea. Sacrifice, giving and sharing are all aspects of Service.
The Aquarian Age will also foster wisdom and uplifting. It is an Age of reason and, through this, of understanding and enlightenment. Clarity of mind will become important in this Age just as purity of heart was important in the Piscean Age.
In the Aquarian Age we will move beyond the rites and forms of the Piscean Age and begin to develop independent understanding of the meaning beyond the surface of all things and events. The time for the parables of the Piscean Age will pass. The Aquarian Age is a time for plain speaking and clear understanding. In the Aquarian Age there will be a broadening of perception so that we can begin to access the unlimited nature of Spirit. The lessons of Soul that Jesus taught in the Piscean Age will evolve and broaden. Personal responsibility will be taken to a far greater degree than previously. Circumstances and events will be seen in terms of their own value and with less comparison involved.
We will have the opportunity to identify the Christ potential in ourselves and begin to express it. We will also become more aware of the brotherhood of all men and the need for connectedness with the rest of the earth and its creatures. This will also include our brothers, the angels and the nature spirits of the Earth.
During the Aquarian Age, the etheric field of the Earth will have a more reflective quality than previously. Thus, our actions and thoughts will, with increasing speed and strength, be reflected back to us. This means that the results of our actions will become apparent to us much more quickly than previously. Because of this, we will more easily be able to see the connection between our thinking and the things it creates. This will give us greater opportunity to assess and take responsibility for our thinking, allowing growth and expansion.
In the Piscean Age, humanity needed a structured church with priests and leaders to follow and rites to observe. It also needed a format setting out right and wrong. In the Aquarian Age, people will not depend on structures so much. Leaders and teachers will not be seen as having authority over others. Rather, they will be seen simply as people who are sharing what they have, in whatever quantity they have it. In general, there will be more people sharing what they have on every level rather than just a few select people providing guidance. By pooling resources in this way, people will be more connected with each other and be able to function more effectively. Each person will be his or her own priest, coming to spirituality through the management of self.
There will be an emphasis on communication in this Age. This will include physical communication as well as the use of telepathy. Information will be more readily available than previously. There will also be the opportunity for people to communicate with each other more clearly and meaningfully than in the past. This will allow greater accord between people. Communication is an aspect of connectedness. The throat chakra is the chakra primarily associated with this Age and this chakra in every person is at present being stimulated by Aquarian energies and by angels who work in service to humanity. In addition to being associated with communication, this chakra is also connected to humankind’s ability to bring forth ideas and to create or manifest circumstances in our physical world. The power of the voice is associated with these factors.
In the Aquarian Age, humankind’s possibilities and opportunities will be increased, so that it can demonstrate itself to be much more spiritually capable than previously. The idea of openness is an important one in this context. A growing number of people will make great leaps in spiritual development as opposed to the plodding sequential approach that has been the tendency expressed in the past.
Certain people in the Aquarian Age will attain the spiritual awareness to grow ethereal wings as an auricmanifestation of the Soul’s flight into the realm of Spirit. These will be visible to anyone using clairvoyantskills.
Angels and nature spirits are involved with every process taking place on the Earth. The movement of energies associated with the changing Ages is accompanied by an increase of activity amongst the angels working with the Earth. There seem to be an increase in the number of angels in some areas, especially over the last ten years. This seems to be accompanied by shifts in energy concentrations around the globe, within the etheric and in the astral counterpart of the planet.
Nature spirits function at the direction of the angels in managing the non-physical aspects of nature and there is a change with these beings also. In recent times, they have increased their levels of activity. At the present time, they seem even more vital, joyful and enraptured with their work than usual. They are also experiencing a period of accelerated evolution.
So many beings and energies are working to support the Earth’s elevation in this coming Age. Clairvoyant vision reveals every particle of the Earth beginning to stir and awaken to the impulses that are being received. This is an extraordinary time we are living in and we will benefit from pausing often to reflect on the unprecedented opportunities available.
