The Age of Aquarius: Instinct, Intuition, and Unity Consciousness

The energy of each age is associated with major evolutionary and cultural shifts of the species. We are currently entering the Age of Aquarius when the Earth’s axis passes from the portion of the ecliptic that represents the constellation Pisces to that of Aquarius.

As we enter the Age of Aquarius, the frequencies that characterize the Aquarian Constellation begin to rain down on Earth, bringing a new set of influences. Concurrently, for the first time in approximately 12,960 years, the Earth’s axis is also leaning in the direction of galactic center, where all that belching and spewing is going on.

Moreover, we’re dancing with the Sagittarius Dwarf Galaxy and therefore subject to additional shifts in stellar influences. According to the Photon Band model, our sun entered the Photon Band of high-frequency particles, and around that same time, the 4th World of the Mayan calendar ended.

Greater Pressure

All of this activity changes the very rules we have previously been able to rely on, and it puts the Earth and all who live on her under greater pressure. When we look at the rapid evolutionary and cultural development of the species over the last 200 years, it becomes clear that we have been increasingly under this pressure our entire lifetimes, but things are now coming to a head, so to speak.

~ You can only push the boundaries
of an agreed-upon reality so far before
that reality shatters, leaving destruction in its wake. ~

This is the true nature of life—expansion and contraction, building and destroying. Our bodies do it on a moment-by-moment basis, or we would die. The universe does it as well, so why not realities? Yet, realities are simply a set of frequencies that don’t cease to exist just because we move beyond them.

Some individuals will stay in the old reality to hold that frequency as a springboard for the next reality. Like a multiple-story building, if the foundation is not maintained, the structure will fall. When you get on an elevator and go from the ground level to the third floor, your reality alters to the one held by the third floor. Yet, the ground floor doesn’t cease to exist just because you are now on the third floor.

Another way to view shifting realities is by comparing them to a chemical reaction. In a chemical reaction, only the elements drawn together to create the reaction change form. Soap, for instance, is formed by a chemical reaction called saponification. By combining lye and lard, among other things, and changing the frequency by adding heat, a chemical process takes place, creating soap. However, all the lye and lard in the world doesn’t become soap just because the lye and lard we put into the pot undergoes a chemical change.

The New Heaven

For, behold, I create a new heaven and a new Earth:
and the former shall not be remembered,
nor come into mind.
                                                    —Isaiah 65:16-18

The Age of Aquarius: Unity Consciousness

While the energy of each age is associated with a major evolutionary and cultural advancement, the nature of that advancement is dictated by the age. Whereby the Age of Pisces typified the development of religions, the Age of Aquarius will bring enlightenment, personal freedom, and unity consciousness.

The more unified we become, the more we are in touch with All-That-Is, which will increasingly enable us to commune with the frequencies from both the Earth and the stars. Each of us has varying access to this guidance and information, depending upon where we are vibrating or at what frequency we reside. Again, we can refer to the ancient texts for the wisdom that still resides there.

In the section below, “On Gifts,” Corinthians 4-10 speaks beautifully about the many gifts that are available for each of us once we reach the frequency required to perform them. The closer we are to unity consciousness, the more we can be directed by these gifts.

On Gifts

Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.
And there are differences of administrations ,but the same Lord.
And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.
But the manifestation of the Spirit is given
To every man to profit withal.
For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom;
To another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;
To another faith by the same Spirit;
To another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;
To another the working of miracles;
To another prophecy;
To another discerning of spirits;
To another diverse kinds of tongues;
To another the interpretation of tongues:

                                                      -- Corinthians 4-10

Even as we train ourselves to tap into the changing frequencies of the universe, many of us may find it most expedient to consult with shaman or wise ones to validate and translate the new information coming to us in order to be guided through these times of upheaval and change.

Just because we have almost eradicated shamanism on our planet doesn’t mean shamanically gifted people have stopped being born. However, because we have nearly lost the ancient art under the grinding wheels of religious dogma, reliable shamanic training is hard to find, so many of our gifted channels lack the hard-to-find shamanic training that would help them accurately translate their information or discern its source.

Channeling and divination are shamanic skills and there are many gifted individuals with us today who have a genetic predisposition to shamanic skills that allows them access to spiritual information. Some of these individuals are bringing valid channeling, with profound information to aid us.

Many of these offerings are a mixed bag, as the light is only as clear as the window through which it shines. We are all limited by our level of processing and understanding at any given time.

~ There is no ultimate truth.
Instead, there are infinite levels of the truth,
depending upon our frequency or level of reality. ~

As we enter the Aquarian Age—a time of more direct access to spiritual information—it becomes necessary to acquire the skills needed to access and accurately decode this valuable material. Yet each of us is unique, and none share the same track in the evolutionary process.

Spiritual information is, by its very nature, multidimensional—many truths are contained in one small piece. The truth that will pertain to any given individual at any given time depends on his or her level of reality. With this in mind, we can see why it is up to the individual to discern what spiritual information is valid and useful for them personally at any particular time. 

The Winds of Change

There is considerable scientific evidence of the drastic changes that are upon us. There is much talk of global warming, yet there is strong evidence that all the other planets in our solar system are warming also. The magnetic north pole of the Earth is moving and aircraft are no longer able to land safely or reliably with “autopilot navigation.” There is also evidence that the fluctuating magnetic north of the Earth is responsible for the increasing incidence of migrating birds losing their way.

There has been a marked and measurable increase in the frequency and strength of earthquakes. Recent solar flares, observed by scientists on the space station, actually slowed the rate of radioactive decay. This discovery has challenged the existing scientific belief that the rate of radioactive decay is a constant. Even the Earth’s ley lines and spiritual centers are in flux. The process of evolution can be a bumpy ride.

For Humans, Evolution Is An Inside Job

For humans, evolution is and always has been an inside job, affected by each person’s personal path and choices. The Earth will make the necessary adjustments to accommodate the pressures brought about by the changing ages, with or without us.

Individuals who have chosen to evolve with the Earth are responding according to their gifts. Some are being drawn to different acupuncture points on her surface where their very presence will provide an anchor for the rest of us during these shifts. Others are bringing forth spiritual information to help us surf the tides of change, while still others, through their own process, are providing the blueprint for the physical structure of the new human being.

From a shamanic standpoint, Earth spirits, animals, and our stellar ancestors are working overtime to provide much protection and guidance for the humans who have chosen this path. I have no doubt that each of us has an opportunity to make a difference. Rest assured that we need simply to follow the lead of our spirit guides and our own promptings.

Shifting Into The New Era

While this shift into the new era progresses, there is no one “safe place” to be—it is different for each of us at any given time. We will be distributed to where we are needed, when we are needed, and we will be protected there.

The new interplay of energies emerging is creating new sacred sites and de-activating the old ones to correspond with the changing heavens. These sites will provide us with the balance of frequencies we need to carry in order to be in alignment with our changing world—this organism we call Earth.

What is beneficial to remember is that at any time, the only constant seems to be change. I can’t say that I know our future. I can say it is unprecedented and that I would rather find out as we go.

Now is a time to let thought and prediction go and live by instinct and intuition. Today, more than ever, the “now” is the only thing we can be sure of.

It is a grand adventure, is it not?
