Okay. Are you done sighing your sigh of relief that 2016 is over? Are you done or still nursing your injuries - physical, emotional, mental, financial? Still reeling from that relationship break-up, losing that job, breaking that foot? And how about that election, huh?! Was it a prank by the Universe to serve that up just before the holidays with your shockingly clueless families?
Yep. For many, in many ways, 2016, especially the Fall of 2016, as was predicted by every reputable psychic channeler, was a major sock 'em in the gut blow.
But... there's a context for what's occurred, and in fact, not everyone's experience was exactly the same. Some people prospered last year in all of the areas listed above, albeit with some relatively minor eruptions of symptoms and contractions. Some did well in their work-life, love-life, and/or physical health. Some weaved through the political debacles with a balanced, light-footed sense of irony and humor. John Oliver and Samantha Bee became major stars transmitting that irony and humor to the public.
So, what's the connecting thread between the simultaneously occurring struggles and traumas and the increase in well-being? Say it - This is the Ascension to 5D in full Wave mode. (See some of the FPL "Wave" pieces HERE)
Remember what's been written - if you're still here on this Planet Earth, you're going to 5D, or leaving the planet sooner rather than later to finish your ascension process in non-physical form. And I'm not talking about celebrities only here. They are the tip of the iceberg of souls taking off to avoid this ascension process while in a body. For every David Bowie, Prince, Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, there are hundreds of thousands of people leaving the earth that you've never heard of. One way or another, though, folks, we're all going. (See the FPL post: "LEFT BEHIND? SORRY, BUT WE'RE ALL GOING!").
That part is not optional. What is optional is not if we're going, but how we're going. We have collectively decided to raise the vibration of our race to the next level of consciousness. It's destiny, and it is irreversibly in place. No going backwards. No Armageddon. Nope. Not optional. We've crossed the threshold.
However, you/we do still have the free will option to determine how you experience the trip. You can go kicking and screaming, clinging to the last vestiges of ego control and 3D beliefs, or you can discover yourself and life anew - new bodies, new creative gifts to express, new levels of peace and serenity, pleasure and prosperity - by letting go of all that you've clung to and by pursuing joy and love in each moment to the best of your ability.
Seems like a no brainer. Right? Well, if you've been following this blog for the last 9 years (Whew!), you know where this is going - the difference, soul age notwithstanding, is the depth of self-work you're wiling to do to awaken yourself.
