“Someone posted on a forum the other day that the Connecticut shooting made them feel like there was no mass awakening going on, and in fact that things seemed worse than ever. Now, with only days to go before the date on which so many have pinned all their hopes and expectations for a ‘mass awakening’ it is important to get clear on how we define a mass awakening.
Our mass awakening does not mean that overnight we will go from the world that is as it is now, to a wonderful paradise. It cannot be. There has to be a bridge. Awakening allows us to see that bridge. It helps us to cross it. It even gifts us with a myriad of ideas, synchronicities, tools, resources, emotions and countless other things to ensure we have all we need to create something new. Awakening provides us with the ingredients – we decide what to do with that awakening.
Awakening allows one to see and feel clearly, to see and feel from a new, higher perspective. Awakening allows one’s life to be more guided by the heart, and less by the head. Awakening encourages one’s self to follow one’s own instincts and truth, rather than be negatively influenced by others. Awakening offers strength, courage and empowerment where perhaps before there was a lack of those things. Awakening, especially in its initial stages can trigger many things: inner peace like you’ve never felt before, sadness like you’ve never felt before, anger like you’ve never felt before, joy like you’ve never felt before…..you get the picture.
There is such a misconception out there that awakening is all about bliss and perfection and only bliss and perfection. While an awakened life opens you up to greater amounts of authentic happiness, there is nothing awakened about denying those aspects of reality – both within us and in our external world – that are uncomfortable to feel and face. They are powerful messengers. When we have the courage and the consciousness to truly feel and face these messengers, they have the potential to awaken us further and stir us toward conscious action and transformative change.
When the veil is lifted from eyes that were covered, from a heart that was hiding, from a soul that was in the shadows, the capacity for love is increased and the outpouring of grief and hurt after a tragic event is also increased. The outpouring of love, grief and hurt since the Connecticut shooting has been immense. The call for action to be taken on gun control and mental health is unprecedented in terms of both numbers of people, and the emotion that is driving those people. There have been so many events this year that have had unprecedented emotional responses from the masses of people that are, yes, awakening!
So I do see a mass awakening going on, and the wave is getting stronger, bigger and more intense every day. Although we are all feeling great sadness at this event and so many others, have you noticed that we are all also feeling great love? We know this because such united sadness would not be possible unless our hearts were opened to levels they had not been before, and connected in ways they were not before.”
– A recent message by Dana Mrkich, energy intuitive & author, concerning the mass shooting at Connecticut, USA and the 21st Dec 2012 potential.
Dana’s message is very consistent with explanations by many metaphysical sources about ‘horrendous events’ such as 2011’s Japan Tsunami & the 9/11 event . It is during the bleakest moments of our lives that compel us to anchor our courage and express our compassion to others. As such, it is on the darkest night, that our light can make the most difference, and that … is when our true Spirit is awakened. The world is currently going through a transitional period as it moves from the end of one long cycle (approx. 26,000 years) to the beginning of a new cycle. That was foreseen and denoted by the Mayan calendar and it doesn’t signify the end of humanity as we know it.
