Traversing the Planetary Dilemma
We are on a prophetic journey that is affecting every person on earth—the outcome of which remains to be seen. Many prophecies are coming true as we enter what has been called the End Times. The earth has begun to go through many devastating changes that were foretold if humanity did not change its ways. Archaic structures are being broken down creating a scary dilemma for earth citizens, as everything that was once held dear could be lost in these coming times. Even the densest of human consciousness has been penetrated with the awareness that the world is in chaos and that mounting dangers to our way of life is affecting us all.
We must wake up, for our unconsciousness has gone on too long. We are destroying our planet and are living out of shaky systems based on human greed, and these are about to collapse. It is time to move into a new world, one based on unity, harmony, and peace. If we fail to make the important changes the times are calling for, we could face increasing struggle and calamity on a grand scale. Holding to Inner Peace is essential for the times ahead, and yet, for many, quelling the fear that is bringing worry and concern is challenging in itself. Sometimes it is darkest before the dawn. This is the legacy of our current time.
The Indian Nations of the Americas have now joined together in a unified voice fulfilling the Prophecy of the Eagle and the Condor. Their wake-up call is being sent out to the four corners of the earth. Their message is clear. Time is running out. A change must be made now if we are going to insure our future.
Chief Arvol Looking Horse of the Lakota, Dakota, and Nakota Nation has become a powerful voice in these times. “We have been warned from Ancient Prophecies of these times we live in today, but have also been given a very important message about a solution to turn these terrible times around. To understand the depth of this message you must recognize the interconnectedness of what is happening today, in relation to the continued massacres that are occurring on other lands and our own Americas. Look around you. Our Mother Earth is very ill from these violations, and we are on the brink of destroying the possibility of a healthy and nurturing survival for generations to come, our children's children. As these destructive developments continue all over the world, we will witness many more extinct Animal, Plant, and Human Nations, because of mankind's misuse of power and their lack of understanding of the "balance of life."
The Indigenous people warn that these destructive developments will cause havoc globally and affect our future generations. And they are not alone. Scientists, physicists, politicians, environmentalists all share the same view. We are at the 11th hour! Elders from around the world are meeting to address the planetary situation at this crucial time. Chief Arvol Looking Horse says, “In our Prophecies it is told that we are now at the crossroads: Either unite spiritually as a Global Nation, or be faced with chaos, disasters, diseases, and tears from our relatives' eyes. We are the only species that is destroying the Source of Life, Mother Earth, in the name of power, mineral resources, and ownership of land, using chemicals and methods of warfare that are doing irreversible damage. Mother Earth is becoming tired and cannot sustain any more impacts of war. This new millennium will usher in an age of harmony or it will bring the end of life, as we know it. To us, as caretakers of the heart of Mother Earth, falls the responsibility of turning back the powers of destruction.”
We have lived outside a code of ethics that could have translated into a utopian society and humanity realizing its greater potential. Limited by centuries of human programming, we have become drones following the beat of societal ideas that have kept us from living the life that was meant for us. We have come away from cherished ideals and instead embraced the status quo, constantly working on advancing ourselves forward in the material sense while remaining inept at realizing true soul fulfillment.
For too long we have put our personal dreams on hold, relegating happiness for a future time when we have accomplished our goals. All the while we never realized that our incessant drive to amass wealth and to be thought well of by our standard of living was a symptom of our lack of self worth. Mounting ever-new trophies upon the walls of our life, we sought to prove that we are good enough and that we matter, but, the cost has been great. While we may have gained everything in the material sense, we have lost touch with the deeper meaning and purpose for our life. And now, everything that we have built and strived for and worked so hard to attain may come tumbling down.
How can we find peace in a world of chaos? How can we return to the Edenic existence that is encoded within us? How can we realize our full potential? First, we must understand, that our outer challenges are but a mirror of a lost world within and a programming that has acted like a virus in the human computer dictating a strife driven reality that is a departure from our innate wisdom and authentic selfhood. The Greek author, Plutarch said, "What we achieve inwardly will change outer reality."
Through years of research directly in the psyche, I traced the outer conditions in my clients to a subconscious patterning that I found is the powerful creator of our worst fears and nightmares. Beyond our mental control, this encoding brings a host of ailments from ill health to financial challenges, but the potential for healing this condition exists. When we address our challenges on this deeper level we can change our destiny, if not the same type dramas play out over and over again.
Many people believe that our minds hold all the power. If we consciously will something we can manifest it, but there is one missing equation that has yet to be realized, and that is the power of the subconscious to create havoc in our lives. If we want to change that programming it must be addressed. This is an important key. If we want to realize our greater potential, we must change the programs that are limiting our self-expression. It is then we will begin to manifest our ideal life. When more of humanity becomes aware of this inner dynamic, the world will begin to awaken to possibilities it hasn’t yet imagined. Life can be the Eden many have dreamed of, but the work begins within. We must weed out the patterns that have given us a different reality and hold fast to the part of us that can manifest this greater destiny.
If you want Inner Peace and to live on a peaceful planet, than it is important that you master your Shadow and learn how to live more often in your Peaceful Nature, the authentic part of you. You cannot have world peace if you are not peaceful. We will not have unity on earth if you are constantly in challenging dynamics with others. There will be no end to war, if you don’t stop arguing and fighting with your loved ones, because your life is having a great impact on the planet, even if you don’t realize it. You are important to the planetary equation, just as each life affects the whole.
Look at the world from a global perspective. In any given hour of the day, there is an outpouring of human emotion and activity that is having a powerful effect, because millions of people are influencing the present moment and this is translating into a future outcome. You and everyone else on the planet are contributing to the energy of the planet and the way the world will go every day. If you are in a grouchy mood, express anger, resentment or frustration, then feel sad and lonely or all alone, by the time the day ends, you have supported the dark side of your nature and have influenced the dark side of our planetary equation. If you are peaceful, happy, content, proactive, and accomplishing your goals, that day you are lending to the positive side of the equation.
You may not have realized it, but you are important to the outcome of earth’s present challenges. You make a difference. Whether you are operating out of the dark or light side of your nature, you are having an impact on the planet. You are, in every moment, either supporting the light side of our planetary equation, casting your vote for a positive progression into the future, or the dark side, lending to the confusion, upset, and strife. Chief Arvol Looking Horse said, “On your decision depends the fate of the entire World. Each of us is put here in this time and this place to personally decide the future of humankind.”
The more you hold to your Authentic Selfhood and spend your days in peace, the more peace will permeate the planet, infecting those around you. Everything we think, feel, and say has a rippling effect on all life. The indigenous cultures understood this. We are a ‘collective of souls’ influencing every part of life. The outer world is but a reflection of what is taking place within us.
