A Time of Unfoldment

Maggie Erotokritou, coordinator of The Planetary Awakening Network, has her finger on the pulse of Now. If you're wondering why you feel more befuddled when you're "awake" than before, read on for her succinctly insightful explanation:

"This is an interesting time of unfoldment, the completion of many cycles and the opening to the new. As we know, when one door closes, another one opens. Certainly since my trip to Peru this has been my experience. I think this is both personal, karmic and planetary.

"As we look back, we can see that since the beginning of this millennium, 2000, energetically there has been a speeding up of everything. It is as though time is no longer the same, and that's why so many people feel they don't have enough time, or they can't quite get a grip on things or deep within they feel out of sync, often something just does not feel quite right. Unless you align with yourself on a daily basis and to the greater cosmic alignment, which is always shifting, it may feel that it is hard to keep up.

"That is part of why on an outer level, it appears like so many things are going crazy. Even though so many more people are waking up and becoming more conscious, on another level those who are not aware appear to be falling deeper into the abyss of unconsciousness.

"What I believe is needed is greater vision, more attunement to the higher levels and a very deep clearing of whatever issues stand in the way. This may seem obvious, and of course it is, but the work has to be done on a very deep level, and those who do engage in this clearing also do it for the collective consciousness. Being truly responsible and acting from the highest level of integrity is essential for anyone who is sincerely on the spiritual path. All around us we see those who proclaim to be spiritual, and then act in insincere and unconscious ways without consideration for others.

"We live and exist in a pool of consciousness, and everything we think and do affects this pool. We have the ability to shift, change and transform this consciousness. Sometimes we may feel disempowered and that we don't have the ability to make a difference, but if we remember that each of us has an important part to play and really can make a difference and recognize that it starts with each individual, we'll see that, like the hundredth monkey effect, it only needs one person to change a trend, to turn things around and to gain momentum.

"As we move into the last part of the year and feel the Winter Solstice approaching, it is always a good time to reflect on how the year has been, how we wish to complete it and to prepare for the New Year to come. I always find this an exciting process, and look forward to the beginning of the New Year and creating new things. Of course we can make plans and prepare for the new, any day of the year, but somehow the end of the year offers an extra opportunity to do that, it's like a bonus.

"Energetically I can feel this inner shift, and recognize changes that need to be made, things that need to be let go of and new things that are ready and waiting to come in, and this is the continuous unfolding process of life, which we are here to experience and enjoy."
