Awakening the Avatar

If you are a movie buff, read the newspaper, or watch TV, by now you have heard about or seen the movie, AvatarIt has surpassed Titanic as the highest grossing movie worldwide.  Besides its beautiful colors, awesome special effects, and astonishingly real 3-D images, this movie represents more than high tech movie-making.  James Cameron, its writer and director, envisioned this movie over a decade ago. Since then, he has worked on developing the 3-D technology and computer simulations that would make his dream a reality upon the screen.

Timing is everything.  Technologically and consciously we were not ready for this movie ten years ago.  More important is the exact timing of its release.  The movie, which was released on 12/18/2009, is still drawing in crowds more than a month later.  When I look back at the energies from 12/18 until now, a lot has been going on.  From mercury retro and then direct, to mars retro in Leo, to the full blue moon lunar eclipse on 12/31, to the solar eclipse of 1/14 in Cancer/Capricorn, to Saturn retro, and Jupiter moving into Pisces, there has been a lot going on!

To me, this energy represents shaking out the old, seeking the new, and sharing who you really are with the world.  In a word, these energies assist us in becoming congruent - our true essential selves are portrayed as who we are or more simply, our inner world matches our outer world.  What does this have to do with the movie, Avatar?  A whole lot.

The term avatar comes from Hindu mythology meaning "the descent of a deity to the earth in an incarnate form or some manifest shape; the incarnation of a god."  In other words, an avatar is one who has mastered congruency.

This movie is filled with metaphor.  The protagonist, Jake Sully, agrees to take on his Na'vi human hybrid body called an avatar.  He does this to fill the role of his now deceased brother and to help the humans understand and control the Na'vi natives to "obtain the unobtainium."  As he goes back and forth between his human body and avatar body, he begins to loose his identity.  In one of his video journals, he records he doesn't know who he is anymore.  Does this sound familiar?

Watching Avatar was an activation for me.  I saw the movie in 3-D, which made it even more potent.  I chose to see the movie on my birthday as a gift to myself, not knowing that at the end of the movie Jake says he doesn't want to be late for his party...his birthday party.  Perhaps the term birthday was used metaphorically as this was the day he chose to leave his human body and enter into his avatar body for the remainder of this lifetime.  I think of birthdays as re-birthdays and this was truly a rebirth day for Jake...and me. 

As I said in my last blog, the energy at the beginning of 2010 is purely full steam ahead.  Once you embark from shore, there is no going back.  Once you embody the persona of who you really are, there is no going back to who you were.  Jake Sully knew that once the ritual was performed, he could not return to his human body, to who he was. 

After I left the movie theater, I was shaking.  Like Jake, I questioned who I am.  I wondered if I was losing my mind.  Am I leaving the old me behind and fully embodying the avatar that I am?

We are losing our minds, our limiting thought patterns and old consciousness, in order to make room for the new.  This year is characterized by emergent energy - the energy of coming into existence and coming into view or notice. 

Dear lightworkers, this is the year we emerge from our chrysalis.  As I wrote in my book, In the Key of Life, An Activational Journey to the Soul:  "...there comes the moment in a caterpillar's life that requires the ultimate act of surrender and faith.  It knows it must allow the death of one body in order to step into another that will allow it to reach the sky.  Just like the caterpillar, within each of us is a butterfly waiting to fly."

And so it is.

2010 - A Year of Miracles

What an incredible year we have in store for us.  2010 started with a bang.  With the Full Blue Moon Solar Eclipse on New Year's Eve to herald in the new, to Mercury and Mars going retrograde, and with a New Moon Solar Eclipse coming on January 15, we have a truckload of potential energy.

This combination of energy is like pulling back on a slingshot, the bow of an arrow, or the trigger of a gun.  Back we go again for another round of "re's" - rethink, revise, reconfigure, redo, revisit.  This pulling back motion takes energy.  It takes energy to pull back the bow or cock the trigger and at the same time, we are creating potential energy.  The energy of the stretched-back bow is what propels the arrow.  This energy is waiting to be released into that forward motion for which we have waited for so long.

After the Solar Eclipse on January 15 and Mercury goes direct on January 16, the energy lets go and we let go.  It is total fast forward motion and when we release the bow or pull the trigger, there is no more controlling what we have set in motion.  Once we let go of the bow, we cannot grab the arrow and retrieve it.  We can't even change its trajectory.  Once the task is executed, there is no stopping it.  We cannot return the bullet to the barrel, the arrow to the bow, or the stone to the slingshot.

After we let go, we are at the will of our hearts.  Our hearts create the patterns we follow.  They created the trajectory of our arrows.  The universe will now mirror back our hearts' desires that we projected years ago.  It is the projection of what we felt in our hearts and its passion that has been building and building, literally building the roads, bridges, tunnels, and superhighways for our forward journey this new year.

This next week, before the release of this energy, is the time to clean out our spiritual closets.  Replace the old with the new.  Review our vision for our future.  Soon it will be time for us to come out of our spiritual closets.  The world wants to see us, to hear us, to know who we are, to shine our light!  It is time to bring all of who we are forward.  Remember in this forward motion, there is no going back.  

By the time the spring equinox comes, we will truly spring into action.  It will be the dawn of a new day.  Around January 17 the "big bang" happens and at the equinox, the physical takes form.  It takes time after the release of energy or the big bang for things to manifest.  Everything may be in total chaos to begin.  Creation comes through chaos and then order starts to appear.

By March 20 we will see a concrete pattern of what is forming in our lives this year.  Now the etheric template that we created through our hearts' desires will come into the physical.  We will precipitate our passions.  We will see it, we will feel it, and we will know it.  There is no more guesswork.  What we have dreamed, what we have envisioned, what we have loved into existence, becomes reality.

So now as we are now going back and "ringing out the old", this twisting and pulling energy is fueling our potential.  When enough energy builds, we will release our potential.  This release, this letting go, this surrender of our will to divine will will propel us forward, into the life of our dreams.  Our wildest dreams will become our reality and more - beyond what we can envision.  This is only the foundation of what we are creating, for what we are creating is so enormous, we could not envision it with our present mindset.

Expect miracles this year and know that our beliefs will change.  A miracle is only a miracle until we have a new experience that changes our beliefs.  We all may say, "I thought this wasn't possible but now I see that it is."

We are God incarnate.  We are the Divine in form.  We are the ones that co-create our reality.  We are victims no more but the masters of our lives.  And so it is.

A most glorious New Year to you all!
