Tomorrow (today in some parts of the world) heralds what has always been a major stargate for us all: the 11:11. South Africa-based Lightworker Celia Fenn offers some insightful words on our present passage and the new global currency: Love.

I'd like to share an excerpt from my e-newsletter, What Shines for November 2005, which focused on the 11:11 doorway and is still relevant to now:

"November 11th signals a transformational gateway. Eleven is the master number reflecting the transmutation of physical to divine. You may have begun noticing 11:11 on digital clocks. This is an encoding that activates our cellular memory of the ascension process that's well underway.

It's often been difficult to tell whether we're moving towards the Light or deeper into shadow, when so much is being brought to the surface to be healed. The Tao Te Ching says, 'The way out into the light often looks dark/The way that goes ahead often looks as if it went back.'

I've just finished reading The Magic Circle by Katherine Neville, another evolutionary guidebook masquerading as fiction. Neville's narrative traces a cache of cryptic manuscripts across aeons, as one family struggles to protect these documents that, when decoded, will determine the fate of the world.

The time the text points to is now: the dawning Aquarian Age. And there is much discussion of geomantic lines of power: key points on Earth that can divine our destiny. What reverberated in my mind was "Axis mundi": the mythic center of the world that connects Heaven and Earth.

The Axis mundi correlates cross-culturally with the concept of the World Tree, as well as with the caduceus, an ancient symbol of alchemy that today denotes the medical profession. The caduceus has long been my personal power symbol. For me, the two snakes entwining face-to-face represent the ultimate union: an alchemical wedding that forges something more magnificent than either could alone.

This is the Axis mundi to which we're heir: Love, and reverence for all life. We even embody it: the Heart chakra is the center of the body, connecting the three spiritual chakras above it with the three physical chakras below. As we engender greater love and compassion, we merge Earth with the Heavens.

And at last we are ready. Enough of us have cooked in our cultural cauldron to create an uncritical mass, a confluence ('flowing together') of allies.

You're invited to the Axis Mundi Dance—the most exuberant synchronized Dance of all time. Eleven a-lovin'. It's purely elemental."
