INTRODUCTION TO AWARENESS
The Question "Why?"

As long as we keep searching, the answers will come. Asking ourselves 'Why?' helps us delve deeply into our main motives ... why we do what we do. This process helps us go deeper into our reasoning, habits and unconscious beliefs. Once we become aware of our underlying motives, we can choose to change them, if we wish.

Regularly ask yourself, 'Why am I ... ?' Listen closely for the answer that surfaces in your mind, and write it down. Now look at your answer and ask why again. Continue with this process to reach the true source of your motivation.

People are more accountable for their motives, than for anything else. Explore and deepen your feelings and thoughts. Go deeper and reach higher as you find the answers to your "whys". You will get clarity and make better decisions by practicing this questioning.

TODAY'S FEATURE ARTICLE
The Time Of 12-12-12 and 12-21-12
by Michael Bonamassa, Sr.

This truly is a time for joyous celebration and gratitude of the opening of the portals to the 5th dimension and the dawning of the Golden Age. That is why we are sponsoring the wonderful 12-21-12 Celebration at our home in Springboro, Ohio, the home of the Center of Light & Serenity, Soul Soothers Online and the focal point for ascension for its subscribers.

The time has come to move back into the consciousness of who we really are, always have been and always will be ... our I AM Presence. The following is an overview of what was to have happened during the 12-12-12 and what will happen on the Solstice of 12-21-12. As part of the Ascension Process, the changes that we have been expecting will materialize, but we must allow for some intermittent delays as the whole plan has never been done before and is extremely complicated. It involves thousands and thousands of people and has to be implemented at the "right time." Our spirit teacher guide has told us that we can look toward President Obama for the trigger that will set the ball rolling, and it will pick up speed very quickly. However, what that trigger is, we have not been told.

The Ascension still remains an event that has to be carefully approached so as to minimize any possible negative affect upon us. Fear is a powerful force that has been played upon for millennia of time by the those embracing the lower energies, but we are slowly but surely winning people over.

Those flares of energies that we've mentioned coming into Earth for some time now will continue to bombard our Earth as we continue toward 5th density. Old regulations, guidelines, as well as many well-established institutions and religious organizations are no longer dependable, and many will be falling by the wayside. Fragmentation of almost all racial, cultural, social and political boundaries within the third/fourth-dimensional paradigms are crumbling or are being challenged. The consciousness of humanity is on the rise, and nothing can stop the forward momentum. Humanity is coming of age, and all who do not follow the flow of expanded awareness will fall into the trap of inertia and chaos along with those embracing the lower energies.

This is to re-mind each of you of the significance of 12-12-12. We hope that each of you took steps to partake in bringing in the energy. It has helped our own upliftment by our grounding of the energies of Mother Earth and others. It is our awareness and focus upon these energies that will permit us to feel the result of them passing into and through our bodies as we progress to 12-21-12. If you haven't already experienced it, know that light headedness is normal along with a feeling of intense peace and calmness, but feelings will be mixed through each's uniqueness of being. Each of us has been lifted up to a new level of consciousness through these energies ... one which will remain with us to honor the ending of this evolutionary cycle and entrance into the Golden Age of peace and love.

As a result, all of those who have come into our surroundings have and will continue to sense our new energies, including the very young children and animals who will also tend to see the light within our aura. Also, you may have experienced by now, or soon, a new level of calmness which will have control over our emotions from becoming involved in the negativity of lower energies that may be brought into our surroundings. This, in fact, will be a factor in transmuting them from our presence. As a result, and during the time following the 12:12 p.m. ceremony on 12-21-12, don't be too surprised if you find an irresistible urge to express yourself by embracing others; for it is only natural that we would want to share our feelings of love with all.

When we are completely released from duality, the Law of Attraction ensures it is so and life becomes a relaxing and enjoyable experience. But most of all, these energies will create a positive balance in our consciousness by having reached that critical mass. As you know, it has been a most difficult year for all involved in bringing the changes forward, the lower energies were supposed to be released from the scene, and allow ascension to go ahead unhindered. Instead, those embracing the low energies repeatedly refused to co-operate, threatening to destroy the progress already made.

The changes we are about to experience are going to remove what remains of any connection to the old vibrations and old paradigms. Much that is needed to be changed over has to be long term, so don't expect it to happen in an instance or overnight; requiring some patience. However, the new cycle will provide the rewards of seeing a totally new approach to life, when all will be shared and there will no greed or corruption, or systems by which people are allowed to profit at another's expense. There will be fairness and honesty in all dealings. The truth has often been a rare commodity, but in the new age it will be normal, as it will be obvious if someone is not being totally honest. There will be no secrets.

12-21-12 is the ending of the old 5,125 year cycle and the beginning of the Golden Age ... and 2013 will be a year of great advancements. As it progresses, you will still continue to evolve albeit at a slower pace, and you will be experiencing continual growth where your consciousness is concerned. Super-consciousness is our target; taking us to another completely different level. We will have enough to get used to very shortly, so do not concern yourselves about the distant future.

Fortunately, more and more people continue to awaken to the process of turning inward in order to gain a heightened sense of Self-awareness, which ultimately leads to a desire for higher Soul-consciousness and release of the lower energies of discontent. While it may not be evident through what we are observing globally, every cultural group, every race and every country is seeking direction or a higher philosophical path to follow.

In the beginning stages of awakening, before the Soul merge takes place within a person, there can be no interference from the higher realms due to the divine law of free will, which ultimately became a gift with great and burdensome consequences. However, when a person attains an energetic signature which resonates with the higher frequencies of the fifth dimension, he/she is ready to affirm and ask for the greatest good and the highest outcome for all, thereby aligning the personal will with the Will of the Higher Self and the divine blueprint for the Earth. As a result, a magical path of Light is then extended to the Soul via its personal column of Love/Light.

Another effect of Earth's proximity to fifth density is that we will continue to experience linear time as passing more and more swiftly. If you are reaching day's end feeling frustrated because there was no time to handle all responsibilities, set your priorities and please don't fret about foregoing what could not be fit in.

Like all other sources of negativity, the low vibrations of greed and control are incompatible with the high vibrations of Love that are flowing ever more abundantly throughout the world and bringing Earth back into a healthful state of balance. The energy within balance is Love/Light, and nothing with low vibrations can coexist with this most powerful of all energies in the universe.

During our celebration on December 21, 2012, at 12:12:12, our Mother/Father God, the Holy Spirit, All That Is, and the feminine aspects of deity throughout all creation, will breathe into Earth's crystal grid system, the highest frequencies of God's Divine Love that life on this planet is capable of withstanding. Due to the monumental influxes of Light that have occurred over the past several years, and especially since the dawn of the new millennium, this will be the greatest vibratory influx of Divine Love humanity has ever experienced.

It is on 12-21-12 that our God, representing the Divine feminine throughout all creation, will create a force field of Divine Love that envelopes every atomic and subatomic particle and wave of life on Earth, and all of the spaces in-between the particles and waves of life. This force field will reinforce a multi-dimensional and multi-faceted womb of Divine Love that will assure Earth's safe passage up the spiral of evolution and the birth of the New Earth.

The events of 12-12-12 were the final steps of preparation leading up to the December solstice and the birth of the New Earth. On this day, the Earth aligned with the galactic core of the Milky Way. This opened a portal of Light that extends from the very heart of our omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent Father-Mother God ... the cosmic I AM ... All That is, into the divine momentum pulsating in the center of the Earth. This influx of Light began the process that will birth the New Earth. This is to reflect a new level of understanding that all Life is interconnected, interrelated, and interdependent. It is now that we will all begin to realize that what affects one part of life affects all life. From this new awareness, the peoples of Earth will be inspired to work together to find win-win solutions that will benefit every person and enhance the existence of every facet of life of Earth.

If you think science has gone fast in the last 100 years, watch what happens with the consciousness shift that we are about to experience. However, know that the old energy on the planet is going to fight to it's end; as will the Ego that creates separation. But, as human nature has shifted greatly in the last centuries, so too will we now. Think about it. How many of us today are saying, "Well, after lunch we're going to sacrifice a virgin to the volcano?" The answer is "Absolutely no-one." No, we would now laugh and say, "How ridiculous, that's something they did in the old ages." We would say, "It's barbaric, unconscionable, out of the integrity of human beings, and no longer acceptable."

Then too, how many years ago did a technically advanced civilization on our planet gather and cheer to watch humans being devoured by animals or fighting to their death? Measure the time and you will realize that it really wasn't that long ago. In fact, their theaters are still standing!

Well, that's what's involved in our movement to yet higher consciousness ... the time is coming when we will look at this planet and we will see 'war' exactly like these examples. The idea of killing another human being for any reason will seem barbaric and not appropriate for any human to do. Of course, many in the lower energies will laugh at this and say, "That's naive. It's human nature, and it's a survival instinct." Well, I'm here to tell you that that's going to change. We are about to experience a quantum change in our thinking. This is difficult to explain, but human beings are missing something that's intrinsic ... something that should be there and we're not even aware of it. It's missing, but we don't know it since we never have had it … it's called a 'new intuitive inheritance.'

My dear friends, that which we term the 'Ascension' can best be defined as the transition to crystalline dimensional expansion. The final completions of the crystal vortices are extremely important to the crystalline transition of the Earth. And the crystalline transition is tantamount to the 2012 Ascension. On 12-12-12, the crystallization of the planet was completed.

In a very real sense, what occurred on 12-12-12 is our ability to ascend, and what takes place on December 21, 2012 is the Initial birthing solstice of the new Earth and the Golden Age. That is because the "mechanics" of the actual ascending process (that enable the ascension) occurred on the 12-12-12. Accordingly, what happened on December 12, 2012 finalized the activations and network-connections of all the master crystals, crystalline fields, grid points, power nodes and vortexial-portal sites to the Central Sun.

What this means is on 12-12-12, for the first time, all of these crucial aspects were combined, networked and tied into the completed crystalline grid. At precisely 11:11 a.m. from the crystal vortex, the ascending energy started being tangibly felt. All will tie initially into the Central Sun and connect to the crystalline grid.

This means that there is no more time for procrastination. If we haven't already, we must wake-up now and start diligently applying spiritual laws in all aspects of our lives ... living by the concepts of Love from day-to-day. It's time to let go of our preconceived ideas about God and be willing to embrace the Truth that we have been avoiding and becoming the God that we are right now by becoming Love in action in all we think, say and do. Love is the only shortcut we can take in our ascension process. It is the greatest key ... love of self, love of God and love for Mother Earth and all its kingdoms, including the animal kingdom. It is a time when we Love and honor all that breathe the life of All That Is.

If you haven't already, now is the time to let go of all judgments and embrace the way of harmlessness. With enough love in our heart, we can make it through all the portals to the ascension door. Be assured it will not happen for those who continue to live their lives on automatic pilot and in the fears of the Ego.

Finally, it's important to simply allow things to flow and be part of it, and know that we, you and us, will ascend and then we can put any worries or concerns behind us. Be assured that everyone will be looked after according to their needs, and all will be treated with reverence and respect for their sovereignty. We now have every reason for getting really excited as with just days left, the long wait is almost over and great happenings are about to commence of which we are already aware. We know that some of you still worry about the fate of friends or family, but let us again confirm that every single soul will find themselves exactly where they are meant to be, by their pre-life agreement. Also remember that we can never be completely separated from each other as long as there is a love link between us.

What has been shared in this newsletter is a sampling of the information that serves as a brief overview of the most monumental shift in our Earth's history. If you have friends who are unaware of the changes unfolding, we invite you to share this newsletter as we move into the Golden Age.

Create Your Future With A Vision

As you may have realized, we've included quite a bit in this and the last issue about those who have or are continuing to have repeated experiences in their lives that is difficult to understand. And, of course, it's all about their failure to learn the lessons that these experiences are bringing to them to learn ... lessons that, in reality, are not being learned for some reason or another. Well, this is just another suggestion to these people who are in this particular situation in their lives, and what they can do to overcome a continuation of the same lesson.

Study your past and present situations thoroughly as related to your particular lesson. Go over in your imagination the various courses of action possible to you. Visualize the consequences which can follow from each course. Pick out the course which gives you the most promise and go ahead. This is called "mental visualization" and many successful people use this skill. It's an exercise in mentally running through important events before they happen.

Picture yourself in your minds eye as already having achieved your goal ... that of learning the particular lesson. Then, see yourself doing the things you'll be doing when you've reached that goal of having learned the lesson. You can put your subconscious to work toward making your mental pictures come true. Go over your day in your imagination before you begin it. You can begin acting successfully at any moment in relation to achieving that which having not learned the lesson has prevented. For example, if you've been experiencing bad relationships with mates and they have been the result of 'lack of self-love', simply visualize your next relationship as being a perfect match in terms of bringing joy and happiness to you and your new mate. Visualize doing much of the things you enjoy doing and together you're both doing them with pleasure.

See the things you want as already yours. Think of them as yours, as already having happened and in your possession. Know that what you can see in your mind, you can get ... and you will. It's as simple as that! Try it and see! And as it occurs in your life, show sincere gratitude by saying "Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!" (Now, re-read the quote above this article, and think accordingly.)

SPIRITUAL INSIGHT
(channeled vignette)
Have You Shifted Consciousness

At 12:12 a.m. on 12-12-12, the universal energy that was coming into Earth since last December began bringing new vortices into place. This force began raising the collective consciousness to a higher level. On 12-12-12 ... critical mass was reached and the final vortex was brought into place and in balance with all others; creating a portal to the 5th dimension to enable those who are now or have been ready to enter the higher realms and to do so with comparative ease.

Have you shifted into soul consciousness? You have practiced "watchfulness" and are staying in positive thought, so why haven't you shifted into soul consciousness? ... why haven't you entered the portal to the 5th dimension? The fact is that you have shifted in consciousness and as a result, more and more of you will do likewise ... and then you will be able to be without resistance to finally step solidly afoot into the higher realms.

The world you are experiencing today is the result of the 'mass consciousness" or your collective consciousness ... a level of consciousness where some resistance still resides and if you want a new world, others like you must start taking responsibility for helping create it. There are 7 levels of consciousness that clearly outline a path for evolving consciousness as a whole. They are:

- tribal and mass consciousness where one obeys the group and lives by trial and error
- individual consciousness - where one develops a stronger sense of self and ego
- seeker’s consciousness - where one asks questions and seeks independence
- intuitive consciousness - where one develops the heart and is becoming spiritually aware
- heart-centered consciousness - where one serves a higher good by helping fill the needs of others
- soul consciousness - where one experiences spiritual service through unconditional love to others; without limitation
- unity consciousness - one experiences oneness with all things ... only an essence above soul consciousness and attained immediately upon leaving the 3rd dimension.

On which level do you spend most of your time? If you haven't attained those levels of higher consciousness, it's time to ask what have you done and are doing to shift to those levels of being?

There are as many paths to understanding, awareness, peace, freedom, love and meaningful service as there are humans. That is your journey! Unlike many of you think, consciousness is not just some by-product of the human brain mass. Consciousness is all pervasive. It is in everything and is everywhere. Your individual human consciousness exists within and is a part of a universal consciousness.

All That Is (God) acts in history ... that is, All That Is provides ideas, methods, and experiences intended to bring to humans an understanding heart, a conscious life. Before this can fully comprehended, it is important to answer the life-long question “Who Am I?” because to move to that next level of consciousness, you must first understand yourself and who you really are as Soul ... you must understand the process of life.
