Learn to Live From the Heart

Are you empowered to live the life you’ve always wanted to live? Here’s your invitation to meet the friends you wish you’d grown up with at the

ENCINO COMMUNITY CHURCH with over fifty years of community enrichment, an all-inclusive circle of Love that seeks to make a difference just as we are.

C

hristmas is the infinite renewal of the gift that was given in the beginning…’God so loved the world that He gave a Son that would demonstrate the truth of all human life’. In Truth, we have been given many sons and daughters who came with the glad tidings that God is good! Life is good! and…so are you!! If we truly believed that we are innately good, would there be wars? would there be prejudice? would there be duality? We won’t know for sure until we live as though there were no yesterdays, only today. Let’sgive ourselves the greatest gift of all this Christmas. Let’s allow ourselves to love ourselves just as we are, love our neighbors, love those who live far, far away and love the Oversoul who loved us first. Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah. -Rev. Margie Ann Taylor-Black

Ac Tah

Messenger for the

Ancient Maya

As part of the lineage of the Maya Royalty, Ac Tah is here to provide powerful tools to awaken the origins of each of us, and to confirm our collective and individual purpose on the planet at this time. WP: If we were to translate your name into English what would it mean? AT: Man who speaks. WP: Share with us a bit of your history, where you grew up, what type of environment, any siblings? AT: I was born in a town in the Yucatan, in Mexico, I was raised by my grandparents who passed down all their knowledge to two of my sisters and I through games, astronomy, and stories. We are a total of 8 in my family, and for the most part I was with them up until my adolescence and we were with them throughout all my childhood. WP: Was it a traditional family? AT: Well my grandfather and grandmother both educated me. My parents moved to educate my siblings and they left my two sisters and I with my grandparents. WP: How were you influenced as a young man by this upbringing?

AT: Well, I was influenced by the way in which we lived. The way we were educated reflected in the way we lived our life: how we live, how we think‌ It was a traditional way of living in our small village, while I eventually came to learn it was a different way of life. Caregivers passed on all their knowledge to their children as they were growing up. That’s how we were educated. WP: Would you consider it a very rich childhood that opened up a lot of doors for you? AT: Yes, people became very interested in learning and understanding all of this knowledge about our culture, so in this manner many doors were opened to share our message. WP: As a child were you aware that the Mayan culture was quite small and isolated? AT: When we were educated, everything we experienced in our childhood was all very normal to us, all the teachings of the elders, from the peo-


ple in the community, we didn’t see it as different we never thought it would be different, however, when I grew up and I left the village I learned that there was an enormous difference in our way of thinking and that of today which lacks knowledge from and about our culture. WP: As the main source of education, what did you think about the information being handed to you? AT: We were aware that all of the knowledge that was given to us by my grandparents was very ancient teachings. We were aware that it was important, and that at some point we were going to apply in our lives, to share. WP: Did you know as a child that you would be the speaker for the Mayan culture, or did this come about when you were an adult? AT: Yes, we knew, I knew that I was going to share the wisdom of the Mayans, even though there were some things I didn’t know too much about within the culture, like for example all the different types of energies, and geometries, a whole different level of knowledge I really didn’t know much about. So we prepared ourselves to share this information. WP: Was there a pivotal point in your young life that you made a commitment to your community, to your country, to your planet? AT: Well, as I was growing up and I realized that people really weren’t happy, they were not active, and there was a lot of disintegration of families. So, I decided to share the knowledge by way of teaching people how to regain control of their minds, their emotions, and it has continued to be that way for more than 25 years since I began this journey, and little by little, I have been involved in creating a society of peace. I got more and more involved until I decided to work for peace all of the time, in order to achieve grand change, a new form of evolution and as I recognized all this I became involved in all of this and it is with much pleasure and happiness I do this work today.



WP: Was there somebody positioned as the head of the Mayan community, did they appoint you to become a leader/ speaker?

The Mayan culture has always had contact with these beings from other dimensions, from other consciousness, and currently our archeological sites are preparing for a connection with them in another frequency.

AT: My family has belonged to a royal lineage of kings, so we have it in our blood. Every generation assumes our responsibility, and the responsibility is passed from one lineage to the other. And since I was born into this lineage, it’s my responsibility to share this message and this legacy to the world. WP: Can you share a bit on the history of the lineage of the Mayan? How it worked? Were they kings, priests…? And how was it passed on? AT: Yes kings, and the knowledge is passed on from generation to generation through the lineage. Of course when we speak of kings, we see it not from a position of power but from a position of support, to help transform all of consciousness and evolve, in all areas of life. WP: Could we then say that your father was a king and your grandfather was a king and so forth? AT: Yes that’s how it is. WP: At your workshop given at The GATEWAY, you spoke of the 20 frequencies that are active all the time. How did you learn of these frequencies? AT: That was given to me by my grandparents who would talk about the perception of the sun, and above all us Mayans we talk a lot about the movement of the sun, of energy, we speak of the pyramids so those frequencies are based on our calendar and my grandfather taught me how to interpret the calendar and read those frequencies. This is passed on from one generation to the next and that is how I learned of these frequencies. WP: I want to understand if there are other Mayan teachers that share the platform with you or is it a position that is reserved for you exclusively? Continued on Page 8




AC TAH Continued from Page 7

AT: All of this knowledge was created for many different lineages; let’s say within the same civilization, or same city absorbing all this information from all the lineages. However it gradually dissipated and we are the only family that maintains all of this knowledge. WP: Why for so many years was the information that you are coming forward to share with us now, held secret? AT: I don’t know why, but within our own country there was an intention to erase our very own culture because of things like power, and it entered a revolution, and like the world, at least here in Mexico, entered into a phase of another type of consensus. Other types of cultures and all that came with them began pouring into our country and eventually the Mayan culture lost its importance. Until recent years, the Mexican people began a journey of searching, and so that’s when we started bringing back this knowledge. WP: Do you see the Mexican people as very supportive of this information? AT: Yes, today yes, all of this information that we have been sharing, the people have accepted it very well and they support it and are continually discovering how marvelous this knowledge is to generate big change. WP: What is the primary significance of this time we are coming to, this Dec 21st, 2012? There are a lot of rumors and speculation. What do the Mayan people and the Mayan calendar say? AT: It’s a moment of transformation we are approaching, a moment of the planetary alignment where there is a lot of magnetism, a lot of energy. And for us this is important because this energy can generate a wider perception towards humanity, about ourselves, about our abilities. So it’s a good time to think of developing a new consciousness, a new way of thinking and we want to take advantage of this time to simulate unity in Mexico to produce great change in all of humanity, because we need unity in the country.

WP: You describe it as bringing unity to your country, is the process also about bringing unity to the planet? AT: Of course, presently a whole new awakening is arising regarding this knowledge and this consciousness. It can be applied in any country in any place, and it is the result of a new consciousness and a new humanity. I refer to Mexico because the information about the Mayan culture is drawing a lot of attention here at the moment. WP: Does the contact with, or connection of sightings with UFO’s, especially in Mexico which are quite frequent, relate to this transformation and awakening within us? AT: Yes, we have always had this contact; the Mayan people have always had this contact with these beings to continue developing our consciousness and for the evolution of the planet. So today to be experiencing more contact is because the planet is going through an energetic shift to prepare itself for the integration of the awakening. WP: Could you please clarify that? AT: The Mayan culture has always had contact with these beings from other dimensions, from other consciousness, and currently our archeological sites are preparing for a connection with them in another frequency. That’s why we are having contact with these beings. WP: Have you had personal contact with them? AT: Yes, I have had contact with these beings, and frequencies. WP: How do you understand the Galactic Federation? Are they here to support us, are they benevolent? AT: Well I don’t see it that way, as a galactic federation, rather as beings that are waiting for us humans to begin working toward unity to generate change, and in that way have contact

with them. If not, humans are prone to be violent, that’s why we need to create a new consciousness to be able to communicate with them. WP: As you have been on this incredible journey, do you see yourself as a Whole Person? AT: Yes. I am very happy with everything I am doing. Although there is a lot of change, I am happy with my culture. I am happy that people are waking up and becoming more conscious, but there is much more work to do. WP: Ac Tah, I’ve been told you are working on some projects building pyramids. Can you share what the intention is? AT: To construct the pyramids and to create an energetic connection with everyone there to facilitate this change in consciousness, and of course to continue sharing the knowledge of the Mayan culture in order for all of us to continue to elevate the vibration in our bodies and on the planet. WP: Should we as a population on the planet be looking forward to this Dec 21st of 2012, or should we stepping with a bit of apprehension? AT: In a positive manner, but at the same time, we should become aware that there is so much energy that is going to be generated and figure out how we are going to maintain it in order to be able to ascend to a new consciousness. WP: Ac Tah, Thank you for the loving, generous, radiant being you are and your commitment to the planet and to every one of us.

December 21, 2012 Shift. Lift.

Ascension. Alignment.

Torah, Channeled by Shawn Randall

This is a great time of transformation and upliftment. Humanity is in a very exciting process of bringing new potential and possibility to the forefront.  And yes, it is coming in the context of having to meet challenges and strange conflicts that no one could have ever anticipated…In this Lift you are aligning yourself with the awareness of who you truly are. Greetings. Greetings indeed!  This is a time of awakening. These are times of revelation. Yes, this year of 2012 is culminating and coming to its great peak on December 21st of 2012. This date has been singled out by certain ancient Mayan calendars because it is a particular moment in time when your sun and your earth align with the center of your Galaxy. It also marks the end of a 26,000 year cycle. This cycle has been noted by the ancient Mayans and their calendars. But contrary to some current

popular thought the Mayan calendar didn’t end at December 21, 2012. There have been subsequent calendars found - at least two - in which the Mayan calendar continues on and does not end in 2012. So, the projection many people have made - that the end of the Mayan calendar foretells the end of the world based on the Mayan ancient tradition - is a fallacy. Hopefully by now most people are becoming aware of this fact.  December 21st is also Winter Solstice - always significant in the annual rhythms and cycles of your planet as noted through time by countless indigenous groups. This particular Solstice is an intricate time astrologically - and worthy of checking out by those interested in astrology. The world is not coming to an end at the end of 2012. Yet, things are

changing because this is a time of awakening.  It is a special time because the evolution of human consciousness is becoming visible. It is becoming known; it is becoming active; it is now a part of life itself for everyone on the planet. This time of change you are in has been called by some, “the Shift”. We also call it ”the Lift.” Oh yes, there is a shift of paradigm from one way of looking at life to another way of looking at life and your reality. There is a shift of paradigm, a shift of perspective slowly occurring over time. The perspective change is a lift “A lift in view and perception.” It is time to bring forth a new wisdom evolving on the foundation of the old wisdom in a way that can be of practical use on the planet. This is happening now. Capacities in consciousness have expanded and grown. People are aware of the many levels of consciousness available to all. 


There are four cornerstones upon which the evolution you are experiencing is based. Each of the cornerstones has an inner and an outer aspect to it. 

Multidimensionality The first cornerstone is multidimensionality. There is increased awareness of one’s own multidimensionality more than ever before on your planet. You do not end where your skin meets the air. Your consciousness goes beyond your body and beyond this lifetime. You are a multidimensional being. You have proof of this when you use your ESP, your extrasensory perception. Everyone sooner or later has had an experience of ESP that cannot be simply caulked off to coincidence. ESP has been accepted by your society and culture (if not academia). Yet now ESP takes on greater dimensions. You are able to connect with consciousness’s that are not physical, not embodied. Discarnate individuals who have crossed over, and other non-physical entities, have made their presence known and you are receiving them. Inner-world multidimensionality relates to an individual’s awareness of the continuity of their consciousness specifically past lives and memory of between lives. More of the population accepts that reincarnation is a reality. Inner-world multidimensionality also refers to the power of imagination, visualization and visioning. More people than ever before are meditating and discovering the part of their consciousness within that is beyond time and space. (We mean this to be viewed as a ratio to the total population and not just because there has been a growth of population.) 

Awareness The second cornerstone of the Lift is awareness. Awareness is the cornerstone that can eventually bring peace on Earth. The first awareness needed is self-awareness: to be aware of one’s thoughts, feelings, attitudes, beliefs, principles, ideals, spiritual awareness and behaviors. Second is to be aware of one’s impact upon others. You are be-

coming more aware of how others think or feel in response to what you have done or said (you see this in the social media - Facebook, twitter, etc. - where instant feedback is the order of the day).  At this point we must include compassion. Compassion is clearly on the rise. With the many many ecological and weather disasters you have experienced in the last ten years there has been a tremendous upheaval of human caring, giving and sharing and most of all compassion. The disasters are certainly unfortunate and at the same time are functioning to evolve humanity’s awareness and compassion. They also focus awareness on the planet, ecology, Her health, and Her wellness. Beautiful blue planet Earth - how magnificent - and so in need of aware stewards to care for her. Awareness of this is part of the Lift.

Wholeness The third cornerstone is wholeness. Holistic thinking has made its way into the worlds of health and wellness. People are realizing now and will realize even more that if you treat one part of the organism - mind or body - it will have an effect on the whole. Holistic thinking and synergistic thinking - that an organism is a whole greater than the sum of its parts and each part vitally important - is on the rise. This approach to health and wellness is accelerating innovation and the effectiveness of new healing modalities in a very dramatic way. This will continue and will grow as the new era continues to unfold.  Inner-world wholeness is when the individual comes to know themselves as soul, spirit, consciousness and body together - inexorably intertwined. External wholeness relates to seeing the world as a whole and humanity as a part of the system of nature that allows the world to thrive and grow. Awakening individual awareness of humankind’s responsibility for the wholeness of your planet is critical. Otherwise She will not survive and humans will not survive. 

17

Knowing wholeness is a vital component of the Lift. You are a whole person that includes your spiritual nature. Whenever you are moving toward wholeness of mind, body and spirit, you are contributing to the evolution of mankind. This is a major aspect of the Lift.

Oneness The fourth cornerstone of this new era you are coming into is oneness.  Ah, oneness. The outer-world expression of the oneness and interconnectedness of humanity is, of course, the Internet. The Internet including social media such as Facebook and Twitter has already radically changed how humanity sees itself. The interconnectedness is not going to shrink it is only going to expand. In this expansion of global connectedness selfresponsibility is accentuated.  Oneness and interconnectedness with other dimensions is also growing. Where do you draw the line between one dimension and another? The notion of oneness is shown in the theoretical quantum physics of modern times within the concept of the Unified Field. Theoretical quantum physics posits that consciousness is the ground of all being. Embracing oneness with all of life is a critically important aspect of these times. Embrace oneness. Discover what it is for you. It does not mean you must give up your individuality and uniqueness. This is a time when individuality and uniqueness is celebrated even though paradoxically there is a greater collective alignment occurring. Regarding the question: is 2012 and thereafter about ascension or alignment?  We say: both. You see, ascension is the lifting of how you see and experience your multidimensionality, your awareness, your wholeness and your oneness. That is the Lift.  In this Lift you are aligning yourself with the awareness of who you truly are. This asks of you Continued on page 18

greater self-responsibility, greater integrity, and expansion of imagination. Imagine a future more wonderful than you’ve ever imagined before! On the rise in this time of evolution is conscious reality creation and cocreation. “Creating your own reality” uses principles of multidimensionality, awareness, wholeness and oneness with wisdom and understanding. Manifesting something you wish in your reality, creating your reality, is now practiced more than ever before. Also on the rise is a collective level of conscious reality creation as you are slowly but surely addressing ecological concerns and collectively choosing responsibility for a healthy planet. However, this topic, the sustainability of your planet, is still less attended than it ought to be. Humanity needs to respond now to ecological concerns.

Conclusion and Bonus Within the four cornerstones of multidimensionality, awareness, wholeness and oneness, comes the evolution of connectedness with sentient beings from other locations in the Universe. Awareness of extraterrestrial intelligence is on the rise. This is a large topic and one that deserves its own article! For now we simply say that extraterrestrial consciousness - both physical and nonphysical - along with wise beings of other dimensions are aligning more and more with human consciousness to help co-create an exciting future.  The explosion of technology in recent years, increased education and widespread use of meditation are building a new evolution in the human brain. Right brain and left brain capacities and their balance are becoming sharper. Above all and included in all that we have stated, the new time you are entering is about love - love of self, of significant others, of family, of com-

munity, of country, and of your planet. The unifying element in it all is love and caring of humanity, love of the divine, transcendent love and love of Love itself.

Without the love the four cornerstones would be vacuous.  To embrace the new era embrace the four cornerstones in your life. Embrace your multidimensionality, develop it. Embrace your awareness, expand it. Embrace your wholeness, explore it. Embrace your oneness with All, love it. Enjoy this historic time of choice and conscious human evolution. Never before have choice and evolution been so conscious! You are the choosers. You are the manifesters. Enjoy it. Celebrate! And love…and love.  WP Torah is a wise and loving non-physical consciousness channeled by Shawn Randall since 1983. www.shawnrandall.com 12-21-2012 Event Details at www.meetup.com/ TheGATEWAYPortal/events/91477972//

Thank God for the Holiday Blues?

The Unmasking of Our Sorrow

by John Castagnini

T

here are those among us for whom the very thought of a Christmas dinner makes their stomach turn. Perhaps this stands true for you as well, where the last place you want to be is around people, feeling compelled to put up the facade of a smile so that they feel comfortable. It may be as simple as this – ‘this year sucked’. Perhaps a beloved passed on or you or someone you know was diagnosed with a ‘terminal illness’, maybe your love-life suddenly ended, perhaps the economy is kicking you around. I’ve been there, sitting in the corner with a room full of people conversing, laughing, completely oblivious to the pain I was swallowing. It might seem bleak, but you can overcome the Holiday Blues and heal the pain of your “Ifonly-things-were-different” broken heart.

“We plan, God laughs.” If you’ve been around the block a bit, you probably have had a few disappointments. It’s quite normal to hold on to wanting things to match the fantasy that we created in our mind. IF only my mom were still alive then... If my relationship didn’t end then... Ultimately, in order for us to FEEL disappointed, depressed or in pain, it precedes that we aremaking a comparison between the reality we are living, and some fictitious imagined fantasy.

In our own private world we often imagine that life would have been better if only... It’s common to become attached to the past or some imagination of a future. When something or someone is no longer a part of our physical reality, it ‘appears’ missing, and attached, we fear its loss.

Finding the Balance We have all heard the expression “Someday you will look back andlaugh about this”. Who would have

thought this expression contains within it, some deeper wisdom. Although it might not seem so at first every event that happens in our lives contains within it equal positive and negative. It is our challenges that make us think deeper, become resourceful, gain courage and develop creativity. Really? How can there possibly be equal positives to things like death, divorce, disease, abuse or pain? When we take the time and effort to look closely enough, we discover that the very events that challenge us, develop our being as much as the events that support us.


21

Ask: As a result of this event that has you depressed, what have you gained? What did you learn? Have you gained a relationship? What have you discovered? There exists no loss without a gain in this universe. What have you gained? Has the pain of this experience helped you empathize with others in a similar situation?

Listen to the wisdomfilled knowing that answers. Do you see it? If not, or if you want to see it even clearer than you do, look again, closer, closer, even closer. What would be the disadvantages if things went the way that you originally planned? As a result of this challenge that you are experiencing, how has your life actually improved? Is there a person you would not have met? Is there somewhere you would not have traveled? There exists an underlying perfect balance in every moment. All of the events in our life contain both positive and negative equally. It is our emotions that convince us otherwise. It’s up to us to bring our perceptions back to balance and to transcend the illusion of our emotions and to appreciate what is, as it is, right now.

Finding what’s missing In Plato’s Republic he writes about The Allegory of the Cave. Plato asks us to imagine a line of people who are chained together and can only stare forward looking at the world in front of them. Behind them is a fire burning. Between this line of people and the fire, exists people in motion. So, the group of people who are staring at the wall are observing the shadows of the people behind them as their reality. Like the chain of people in this cave allegory, when we are blinded by our senses, we become convinced of this shadow on the wall as reality. Perhaps

What have you discovered? There exists no loss without a gain in this universe. What have you gained?

you yet maintain “When my spouse passed, she is no longer present in my life.” or “I got a divorce and that person is no longer in my life.” It’s a matter of looking beyond the shadow in order to honor a deeper understanding. Everything is eternally present. Ultimately, all of us are protons and electrons which exist as eternally vibrating frequencies of light (Kristos). You may have heard of the first law of Thermodynamics, energy or matter cannot be created or destroyed, it continuously changes form. Well, we are energy, we are literally changing form. I know, it may seem hard to imagine, but no one and nothing disappears from your life! If you took the time to clearly identify all the qualities of the person who you perceive as missing, with some effort you would be able to find where in your life these qualities are now showing up. What’s even more amazing is that when you take the time to clearly identify all the qualities of the person who you perceive as missing, and discover where these qualities are in your life right now, you begin to feel their presence. In doing so, you become inspired and see the light. The people, places, and events that we experience are as Plato described, and as John Lennon sang, “I’m just sitting here watching shadows on the wall.” Being truly present to who or what you once thought was missing, can truly heal your heart. With wisdom we discover that all of life, all the people in our lives, all the events are indeed gifts. While life will certainly test each of us in unique ways, the various Holidays can be the heightened times to allow ourselves to see beyond holiday blues so that we may shine with the light.

Let’s Talk Chakras! This is an ongoing series by

Levine

Kenton David Bell, a Master Spiritual Healer, Clairvoyant, Channel, Life Coach and Published Author.

Everything is Energy… Chakra is the Sanskrit word meaning “wheel” or “turning”. Chakras are energy vortices that can be found supporting the human physical vessel. It has been my personal understanding from working with these vortices, and the teachings from spirit, that these energy centers support physical life from the non-physical or spiritual realms into the physical. These vortices when off balance, or not metabolizing fully, can create distortions in our reality. When a Chakra has been “out of balance” for some time it can and does lead to physical disease. All disease begins as an energetic imbalance which stem from something within your internal landscape needing attention. When we begin to work and honor these natural, organic systems within the body we truly begin to master our health and well being as well as evolve into higher consciousness.

The Fourth Chakra Love never claims, it ever gives.

-- Mohandas K. Gandhi Location - Heart Center, Breast

Bone

Organs - Thymus, Heart, Lungs, Chest, Arms, Breast

Color - Yellow. Green. Pink And Gold As Well

Qualities: Ability To Give And Receive Love, Compassion And Joy, Balance

Chakra 1 and 7 are the two chakras with only one aspect. Chakras 2-6 have two aspects to them. A front and back. The Third Chakra reflects and metabolizes the life energies of self worth, self-esteem, confidence and personal power. When we experience “imbalances” in these realms, it is our Soul’s wisdom calling forth a time of growth. Instead of seeing these as imbalances see these as opportunities for transformation, for every physical plane imbalance, there is an aspect of our Soul ready to bring forth the wisdom, love and transformation. It is the exercising of our free will that calls this into being. It’s all yours for the asking!

If you judge people, you have no time to love them. -- Mother Teresa

Love and the 4th Chakra The 4th Chakra is the first of the spiritual chakras, meaning the 3 lower chakras’ job is to support physical life. As we ascend in order, Chakra 4, 5, 6 and 7 are what we refer to as the spiritual chakras. The 4th Chakra is all about the Heart. We are all familiar with the Physical Heart, but ask yourself, how familiar are you with the Essential Heart? The Essential Heart is a multi-dimensional aspect of our emotional heart, the truth teller. The Essential Heart is connected to our deeper truth. Your head will lie to you often, however the essential heart will always tell you the truth. The greater truth… for the greater good, this is where Soul consciousness and the Human intersect in powerful ways. When seeking guidance allow yourself to go into your Sacred Continued on page 27

Heart Space, here you can receive the answers you sp desire to guide you with love wisdom and grace in your soul’s journey! It is wrong to think that love comes from long companionship and persevering courtship. Love is the offspring of spiritual affinity and unless that affinity is created in a moment, it will not be created for years or even generations. - Kahlil Gibran

Spiritual Evolution and the Fourth Chakra Our Heart knows our path. The Heart is connected to the Soul’s energy and thus has the direction of the Souls’ desire within it and makes it available for us to listen to. When we come into conflict with the head, or perhaps what we call reality or the real world, if we go into our hearts and meditate upon the issue at hand and allow love to enter into the equation, we are more readily able to transmute that which is not real into a real experience that allows the evolution of the Soul, hence our journey towards the illumination of the Divine Soul and Self Realization.

Questions to probe the depths of the Fourth Chakra Do you feel love for life? Do you feel and experience love for self? What do you really, truly love? Can you forgive those who’ve hurt you in the past? Where love rules, there is no will to power; and where power predominates, there love is lacking. The one is the shadow of the other. Carl Jung

Balance and the 4th Chakra When we reach for the higher spiritual aspects of who we are, it is important to have a strong foundation in which to

stand upon. We can only reach and maintain higher states of consciousness when all is in balance. We can and do find this balance in the Heart Chakra.

After all, the heart chakra is the “bridge”, between the lower and higher chakras. You might want to ask yourself these questions to look for where you can improve balance in your life.

Do my Spiritual pursuits keep me from staying grounded in the physical world? Do I bring my spiritual side into my day to day life? Do I consider myself to be a human being sometimes having a spiritual experience or a spiritual being having a human experience?

Alchemy and the Heart Chakra Our Heart is also the Alchemist Chamber within, this is where we are able to transform non- love into love. Everything and anything that appears not of Love can be transformed within the Sacred Chamber of the Heart Space. Find something within you that perhaps is a projection out into the world, something you’d like to change, bring it into the Heart Space and then begin to love it. Love it till it is only LOVE.

Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into friend.-Martin Luther king, Jr.

Is Today Your Choice Point? Thanks ToBranson and Other World Leaders Learn from SirBe Richard Our Animal Companions

by Harry Massey, founder of The Choice Point Movement and maker of the film “Choice Point”

What do Sir Richard Branson, Archbishop Desmond Tutu; Paul Mitchell founder John Paul DeJoria; bestselling author/speakers Jack Canfield, Gregg Braden, Barbara Marx Hubbard; three-time Nobel nominated Dr. Scilla Elworthy; philanthropist James Caan; former financial fund manager Alison Poithier; drug-addict-turned-addiction-counselor/life coach Brian Moran; 12-year-old natural food advocate Birke Baehrand and myself have in common?

A

ll of us faced a “Choice Point” in our lives--a seemingly negative life event or crises that proved to be an opportunity for change. Faced with this challenge, we each opted for something better...a choice that led us down the path toward serving the greater good on a large scale--and dramatically increased our satisfaction with our own lives.

Is today your “Choice Point”? In physics, the term “Choice Point” indicates a place of branching or forking, a point of possibility. The point of transformation. Our lives are constantly creating Choice Points. Crises can either be devastating or transformational depending on

what you’re able to learn from them. On another level, it can also be seen that our planet is at a Choice Point. Decisions and choices made by this generation and the next will have a huge impact on whether or not this planet will flourish or be devastated. You have the chance to make a difference in the world. By Understanding Your World, Aligning Your Purpose and then Being the Change. You have the power to be one star in the galaxy, the one piece of the brilliant puzzle that can improve our world with your ideas, your energy, and your actions. But how do you get there? That’s what our movie Choice Point is all about - a movie you can watch free by going to www.choicepointmovement.com.

It features each of the people mentioned at the beginning of this article, relating their “Choice Point”, and the wisdom they learned from the path they took. They offer this wisdom as a gift to you. Let me give you one example of that wisdom: The people who have made a positive global impact and those who have made billions have a secret we can all learn. What is it? Patterns, global patterns! In doing my own research while recovering from a life-threatening debilitating illness, I came across the idea of fractals both in nature and in time. These fractals had branching points where different possibilities exist, and I couldn’t help but to see a common pattern between physics


and the science of fractals, and what happens in people’s lives. The branching of a fractal is the same thing as a “Choice Point” in someone’s life. If you could both identify a “Choice Point” and then also recognize where those possibilities go, you’re suddenly able to make much better choices which can have huge affects on your life. A major “Choice Point” is often recognized as a crisis, but you also get minor “Choice Points”, where you might just feel a bit uncomfortable and have a desire to do something different. When interviewing world leaders for the film Choice Point and my previous film The Living Matrix, it became evident that these individuals each recognized and saw the patterns, and used their Choice Point to springboard them into a new level of success in life, one that involved much more than self-interest. It involved understanding their world and changing their perspective so that they could commit themselves to world betterment.

That’s something any one of us can do...whether we have money, power or presence--or none of those things! Consider Birke Baehr... When he was six, Burke wanted to be a famous basketball player, but that all changed one day at the supermarket. He started reading the labels on the food and when he didn’t recognize the words, he began asking “Mom, what’s isopalminate fructose syrup?” His mom didn’t know what it was either, so he went home and looked up the words on the Internet. He was horrified! And the more he learned the worse it was. He ended up convincing his family to buy local organic food. And he decided he wanted to be an organic farmer and educate his generation about food and making healthy choices. He was featured on a TED-x video that got more than a million views on YouTube

29

and now he’s being invited all over the world to spread his message.

He had his “Choice Point” in jail while he was doing a drug deal.

Let’s take a look at Brett Moran’s story. Brett was a crack addict and armed robber who turned into a life coach. He had his “Choice Point” in jail while he was doing a drug deal. He was hiding heroine in the prison library behind some books when one book in particular fell out - The Art and Practice of Mindfulness by Thich Nhat Hanh. He picked it up and took it back to his cell and read the book over the next few weeks. Something in it hit him. That was the start of his journey that led him to explore meditation and Buddhism over the next few years. What fueled his impetus to change was really his daughter whom he didn’t see when he was a drug addict. Fast forward to today, he’s an addiction specialist and life coach and has a fantastic relationship with his daughter who simply adores him. I’ve never seen such a strong father-daughter relationship; it’s really something quite special.

Now let’s look at the other extreme...those billionaires in our Choice Point movie. Richard Branson told me that eight years ago he came to a “Choice Point” of his own, when he decided to dedicate most of his time to working on global issues (nonprofit ventures and programs vs. for profit). For example, now all of the profits from his transportation businesses, including Virgin Air, go towards global warming issues AND he’s also been changing all of the fuel on his airlines to algae biofuel instead of petro jet fuel. After the interview, I really wanted to film him being involved in these projects directly. He sent me four of the projects he was working on and I got his schedule for the following six months. I’ve NEVER seen anything like it. He was flying everywhere and it was true! Most of his time was committed to Continued on page 30

Choice Point Continued from Page 29

these philanthropic projects rather than business. Whereas, I had assumed he mostly spent his time running his empire. I then flew to Pakistan with James Caan, the successful British entrepreneur-turnedprominent-philanthropist. I witnessed first-hand the flood devastation that left 20 MILLION people homeless. You can see very vivid images in our Choice Point movie of the situation there. James wasn’t just giving money, he had been flying out once a month for the past year using his entrepreneurial skills working with the people there--building villages, free schools, roads for the teachers and students to reach the schools, etc. In that moment, surrounded by these people, it struck me that the majority of the world’s population has really simple needs and people are incredibly appreciative when you help them. They take pride in carrying on building their villages and local economy, and need only a small hand up to get that started.

James takes along volunteers, and if more people knew that, they could volunteer and it would be great for them--AND the people they are helping. This was one of the seeds for the Choice Point Movment’s social network, so that we could help connect people who have skills to offer, with projects that need those skills. As I began to explore how the world really works, I discovered two things...people who had a desire to drive change either had personal limiting beliefs and habits, or they lacked the ability to connect to the people and resources that could help them implement change. And with the Choice Point Movement, we set out to address both limitations. Once people have seen the movie, they can then continue to learn from the leaders in the film by going to our website and joining up.

dECEMBER

Aries - 3/21 – 4/19 While you may be feeling like an outsider on occasions and in some circumstances, please take a closer look at those situations. Look again because it is important for you to have deeper discernment. Discernment of what is in alignment for you and what is not, because you are an outsider for good reason. Deeper discernment is about seeing with clarity beyond illusion. Seeing through to aspects of your life purpose which has abundance in store for you, beyond what you can imagine. Abundance means a balanced weight of many aspects of duality including wealth, courage to speak up, discerning wisdom... The feeling of being an outsider reveals some circumstances in which being ordinary makes you unattractive to some. Yet being ordinary can be a doorway to the riches of mother nature’s blessings. Artificial ego orientated puffery may appear to be exciting, however it is empty and incomparable on the scale of deep fulfillment. This is one of the important measures at the end of life. Cultivate deep fulfillment now by recognizing and appreciating the simple and childlike aspects in you. Follow through on these actions now and in the future and you will be so much more receptive, and more able to recognize the opportunities both outside and inside as they are made available, to the flow of abundance and grace.

Taurus - 4/20 – 5/20 This is a good time for you to integrate what has come to you. Take a rest, meditate, and take an inventory of your life. As you take a look, add things up, notice where you have succeeded and where you have more work to do. Part of your success is your ability to trust and now is a time to trust yourself to take a life purpose inventory. One of the things you will find is that there are aspects of your life that are unfulfilled or unrealized. It will be interesting for you to discover these aspects of your life because some of them are ripe to provide you will a fulfillment that you want but either missed or thought you never would have.

Astrological Psychology

2012

Intensity is the key to noticing what is there, and integrating it. Note, intensity applied in accomplishing something is different from intensity used in integration. Thus use this same tool that you have used to accomplish, in a new way; use it to integrate. You will see things change in your life. Be clear that some of what you know and love will no longer serve you. New will come to you and will leave you operating in a much more productive manner. This maturity will bring life’s blessings to you more effortlessly. At first you may feel isolated and alone. Fear not this is a temporary adjustment to something dying while something new is being birthed. The easiest way through this adjustment is to be in a moment to moment frame of mind. Each moment, notice what ‘Is’ without drawing any conclusions about its meaning. Let it be and you will adjust to a new normal delightfully.

Gemini - 5/21 – 6/20 Intensity is the general theme for you right now. Your intensity is personal to you and is indescribable and incomparable to how you understand intensity by looking at others. You are ripe and ready to taste the fruit of your labor, possibly in ways that you have not fathomed. Some of you are ready to notice a re-birth of some kind clearly tied to past lives while others of you will be more likely to relate to aspects lying dormant that are ready to bloom. Any which way your intensity expresses itself, will be fun and interesting. There is much creativity that can come out. Be aware, there is another form of intensity which can guide you to participate with others in ways new to you. To nurture this, notice when out of habit, you try to compare your insides to others’ outsides. Just noticing this tendency will set in motion a delightful change in your awareness level which will open the door for more creativity. Now there is a part of you that you may find hard to integrate. This invites an allowing of intensity to express itself in cre-

ative ways, reflecting and producing change. Get ready to notice and allow all parts to play an integrative and balancing role in your life; including the fool. The fool is the romantic stepping out into the unknown. A stepping out with the highest in mind, allowing him/her to rise above the mundane. A stepping out to rise above the expected and in some cases, rise above the laws of physics. The future is filled with new visions. These new visions can take the way you see life to a whole new level. Be open and sit in the depth of who you are often to discover!

Cancer - 6/21 – 7/22 It is time to be getting rid of that which is confining. Interesting that in the past what is now confining was important and useful. Look in those places to discover what is now confining. Look with friendliness and appreciation. Appreciation for all parts and beliefs that helped you get to the space where redeployment of those energies is calling you. Proceed with friendliness as all will respond more favorably. Notice that the Creator within is ready to support your efforts and has barely begun to be known. While breaking through what ‘Is’ you will meet some resistance. Please know that resistance is only a burden as long as you hang on to ‘what was’. Even in the midst of feeling the burden, it points the way toward a breakthrough. The romantic in you knows the value of light-heartedness. It knows and can move forward with a carefree sense. It can set the stage for your experiencing life beyond the ways that most know life. The future is an experience of consciousness, profound, immense and beyond words. The understanding is complete yet inexpressible. Your participation is called for and is calling you. While there is some energy to postpone, please know that inside and outside is the same and that the mind is the only hurdle. Allow the intensity


of your being to catapult you forward in spite of the circumstances or beliefs about where and how things should be in order to move forward. While the mind naturally clings to the past, the mind is also ready to let go. It is ready to let go of the vestiges of meaning. Allowing you to divulge & divest the entirety of who you are, who you want to be, who you think you are. Sit in the emptiness of silence and bask in its depths to know.

open spaces on a breath and a prayer, the one that steps out into the light, will be your guide. The conditioning can come off and the you that has been covered up by convention can begin to stand on his/her own. Of course this is the rebel and the rebel is the bearer of light carrying the torch for self and for others.

Leo - 7/23 – 8/22

The future is and continues to be consciousness expressing itself in new and diverse ways. There is some need to postpone the transformation and it is important to get to know that need. Get to know it so there is appreciation for when it is important to go slower and to wait a little. Waiting for fermentation is called for in some endeavors. Be guided as the play reveals the pieces of the puzzle coming into place. Each completion ushers in a new opportunity for further breakthroughs. All of your past experiences are lives in and of themselves. Know that each block, fear... are opportunities to know yourself in new ways; ways that open doors to greater realization on your journey.

Now is the time for you to take action on your understanding, rather than playing it safe. Even though playing it safe has allowed you to be comfortable and certain to some degree, you are now finding it harder to ignore your inner voice. Listen to your inner voice, in the mindset of being playful, to support your moving toward to a new way of participating in life. Leaving the comfort of a gilded cage can only be done when you are ready to travel a path less known, yet strongly guided to be on. Your inner voice has always been there. It is speaking to you. It has your best interests at heart. It will take you into new challenges and blessings beyond imagination. If you are ready, go for it! The future yields great fruit for you and it is up to you how much you want and can handle. Whatever amount you choose it is going to be perfect for you. Some may say you left a lot on the table during the life and others will know that you stretched as much as you could. It is unfair to allow others to place their values and judgments of themselves on you. Choose to live and to be based on your own hearts desire. Be true to you own heart.

Virgo – 8/23 – 9/22 Locked into the desire to be in control has been a heavy and difficult load to bear. You have toiled long and hard in ways you understand and in ways that are more from habit and programming. In any event a healing is on its way. You will recognize the healing source as the puzzle piece begins to fit into place. That puzzle piece means a meaningful piece of your life’s purpose comes into your awareness. Once you recognize the piece of the puzzle you will be faced with two voices. One voice is the politically correct thing to do and the other is the heartfelt thing to do. The fool within, the romantic, the one that steps out into

It is the soft creative side of self that supports this transition, supports this uncovering and supports this bearing of the light.

Libra - 9/23 – 10/22 Being an odd one out brings many known layers into question and consideration right now. We are talking about the 5-year-old part of you that is being exposed right now. So some of what you know is felt without the discerning wisdom of maturity. Yet, it is still in play. Even with all the layers inbetween, the kind of realizations you are progressing toward is the totality of what you are destined for. The biggest hurdle is your mind, which works so hard to make sense of all it encounters. This causes intense conflict and pain at times and it is your lighthearted nature and ability to be playful that rescues you. Play often and you will understand how the mind left to its own devices produces a split in what you perceive reality to be; which some call insanity. Your inner guidance is there to give you hints as you navigate this life. The good news is that there is a ripeness in you that is in support of your evolution and self-discovery. What is moral, what is right, what is common practice vs. what is right for you will be revealed. As you progress you might feel alone and isolated from all you knew and then you will discover an alignment. The key here is turning in to

33

self and your inner guidance without being bothered by the ghosts. The ghosts in the mind are to interfere with your progress as long as you give in. Once you move into the vast void, no-thingness is apparent and in that the absolute is there to be known. The ripeness to change is very present in you and it is the principal job of your guides to help you step by step. The rebel in you wants it all right now vs. it unfolding a little at a time; even so commit to be patient. Encourage the best parts of the rebel within to learn to listen to your guidance especially when you are feeling like an odd one out.

Scorpio - 10/23 – 11/21 This month is a good time for you to take stock of areas of your life that result in expending energy without any return. Chart all effort that you put out due to obligation, community, relationship or whatever. See where you are exhausted and why you continue to pour resources out. This is a good time because there is a new vision emerging that requires your attention and energy. In fact, it is that new vision that will allow you to take an honest inventory of your life. Behind the scenes you are being supported to participate in your life in a much more balanced way. As you get quiet and look in, you will be guided. Hint: Conditioning is what has kept you pouring your energy into people and projects that have left you exhausted. The first step is to discover where the drain is. Once you begin to see the parts of your life that are feudal for you to make changes or to make a difference, you will come to a crossroad. That crossroad can take you on a new and wonderful adventure. This adventure begins when you stand up and move beyond the habits and conditioning that are draining you. This can be done with grace and respect or with anger. It is up to you how and when the new adventure begins.

Sagittarius - 11/22 – 12/2 Being friendly is a natural way of showing up for you. Notice what being friendly has become? Also, notice any moral meanings, ‘shoulds’, ‘can’t’, ‘musts’ associated with being friendly? This will be eyeopening and important for you because there is a greater calling for you in life. Being appropriately Continued on Page 34


34

DECEMBER 2012 ASTROLOGY continued from page 33 friendly will be required to be successful. Also notice that you have a doormat part that carries a thunderbolt. You are less than used to allowing and utilizing your fire. Expressing it can be a great aid and your inner voice can guide you. You are going to have to slow down from your normal pace to move comfortably and successfully into a higher order of participation in life and to be able to use the fire in a heartfelt way. As your participation in life starts to function in a higher order, you will be tempted to comfort yourself by comparison. Comparing your insides to others’ outsides is unfair. This will only be a mistake if you fail to recognize your tendency to compare. Begin to recognize this tendency and consciously choose to stand your own ground. Take actions based on your own understanding of how to participate in the best way for all concerned. Do this and you will learn how to set the ‘burden’ down. Once your success becomes apparent to you, when life is operating at a higher level for you, you will be tempted to sit back. Again a mistake only if you think you have finished, or that is good enough. You know that the rebel in you is alive and well. That rebel is carrying the torch of relentless refinement. Sitting back is only comforting in light of feeling like you don’t belong.

Capricorn - 12/22 – 1/19 Stress gets things done and stress can exacerbate. It is about balance. Taking a stress inventory might be a good idea, to discover the good and harmful influences of stress; if you care to know. If you look, you will find that you have set up some parts of your life to appear like you are busier than you are. Obviously this was set up by you for a good reason. Discovering the motivation behind behavior is the first step in streamlining the use of your energy. The next thing to look at is your conditioning. Conditioning comes from family, society, spiritual organizations, etc. Most people have accepted massive conditioning before age five and spend the rest of their lives accommodating that conditioning. Look at the conditioning itself and to decide if it serves you in the present moment. In the present moment you have a deep unconscious emerging commitment to all life on

the planet. As you uncover, discover, discard and/or re-purpose your earliest conditioning, you will be much more able to accept your deeper yearning of your life purpose. Look at holding on to what you have, as a way of being in the world. These tendencies point to lack rather than abundance. This is saving for a rainy day gone viral. A little may serve, while holding on like a miser, well nobody likes a miser. Check it out. The Future is all about trust. Trusting yourself, trusting the universe, consciousness, trusting God, and trusting that good things are in store for you. Evaluating your current situation and sorting out what is useful from what is a burden will clear the way for you.

Aquarius - 1/20 – 2/18 Most people react negatively to the suggestion ‘slow down’. Why is that? It would seem that one of the reasons revolves around accumulating as much as possible which is believed to require action, action, action. Now, check this out. Some processes require time, like curing wood, marinating food, fishing etc. What if the action right now was to marinate, to slow down? If you agreed to slow down some, you will discover that you have been moving so fast that you have overlooked your ‘clinging to the past’ relationships, thoughts, beliefs, etc. Some berate themselves so regularly it has become almost normal. Others have created complex logic to make berating themselves a good thing! Slow down and a lot of the clinging can be dumped out the window; almost effortlessly. The Creator within has been a great support to you. To the degree you have tapped in is remarkable and there is so much more for you. Slowing down will reveal it. Politics, to you, have distasteful elements. As you slow down, those elements will become very much more apparent, providing

you with clarity to take new action. The tendency to protect yourself or to fight will be there. It has been suppressed for far too long. Sometimes protecting yourself or fighting is all that is required to be engaged in the exact thing you want to avoid. Try going with the flow which will be developing patience in the face of undesirable circumstances. The more comfortable you are with sitting in your house with a hurricane outside affords you the opportunity for more and more abundance to come your way.

Pisces - 2/19 – 3/20 As the lotus grows out of the water the mud from the bottom slides off. Letting go produces a higher probability of keeping what we have than hanging on to it. And at the same time letting go sets up a smooth and comfortable stage for transition and change. It is a constant in life. Your tendency to sit back and to enjoy your success will interfere with your long term success in life. Certainly sitting back a little is good and some need to be reminded to smell the roses. However, sitting back can cause one to miss the next success which is what we are saying here. The field of possibilities is quite ripe for you right now. You will miss out if you are sitting back. If you are one of those that need to smell the roses, do so and the creative ‘Ah ha’ will be revealed. If you have been sitting back for some time, pick a creative action and do it, and you will discover the next step for you. Either way, in the future you will be utilizing a part that most discount. The romantic fool is that part. It has an energy that is fresh, seeing only the best possible, being willing to step into the unknown with hope and prayer. When you get there cherish that part.
