Messages from Mother Earth: Time to Occupy Our Hearts|
by Diana Harris
Intuitive Counselor, Medium and Teacher
Mother Earth has donned her Autumn attire of rich russets, gold’s, and reds. It is a time of weighing in on our lives – a season of transition and of maturation. The events of the last nine months have left many of us feeling unsettled or not quite at home in our lives. We have been in the transition zone for a while. Many of us have found ourselves to be a different person than we thought we were, in places we had not imagined, sometimes questioning our purpose or the validity of our goals, and/or reconstructing our lives in some manner. Transition zones take us deep and can bring to surface our fears and our untapped courage. In 2011, each of us, on one level or another, has been directed to where our energies are most required and toward that which facilitates our greater growth and learning. The purpose of a transition zone is to help us to “free our Will”. The Will that I speak of is not force or ego desire. Rather, it is Grace. Deep at the heart of all the changes that we are going through is the Gift of knowing that there are Infinite Possibilities in both good and challenging times.
October and November mark a period of maturation in relationship with the self and others. This month is an opportunity for thoughtful intervention in areas of our lives that require redressing and for deep healing. These times have shown us that we can make progress despite perceived limitations, if we get out of our own way. Collectively, we are being called out of our lethargy to restructure our values and our world so that they serve both the needs of the individual and the Community. Many are waking up to the fact that faith in money is not what ensures survival, growth or happiness. That is good. Neither can we put our heads in the sand hoping that the inequities will go away or that someone else will fix them. We must fully Occupy our Hearts and act from its Wisdom!
I must share this powerful observation with you by Naomi Klein:
“If there is one thing I know, it is that the 1 percent loves a crisis. When people are panicked and desperate and no one seems to know what to do, that is the ideal time to push through their wish list of pro-corporate policies: privatizing education and social security, slashing public services, getting rid of the last constraints on corporate power. Amidst the economic crisis, this is happening the world over. And there is only one thing that can block this tactic, and fortunately, it’s a very big thing: the 99 percent. And that 99 percent is taking to the streets from Madison to Madrid to say ‘No. We will not pay for your crisis.’”
Our greatest asset, right now, is faith in a greater purpose and our ability to rise to the challenge with courage. Our greatest obstacles are fear and inertia. Since we are part of a larger consciousness called Humanity, everything that we do or believe individually affects the collective. Humanity is being tasked to stand together! It is time. Standing up requires that we sacrifice our ego, our need to make others wrong so that we can be right, and our fears – so that the Heart can truly open. We must demonstrate our willingness to join with others to serve a larger and greater Mission than our individual selves – one that supports global healing, community, peace, and abundance for the entire planet. We are at the crossroads. We succeed together or fail together, which means all of us are accountable. It is as simple as that and as difficult.
The illusion of separation (us/them) is beginning its dissolution in earnest. Around the globe, ordinary citizens are standing for the Good of All despite the obstacles. Each of us, as souls, chose to be on earth as partners in this evolution of Consciousness. We are more than flesh and bone. We are Hearts of Light. We are the 99%!
