Greg Gibbs on 2012
Has 2012 been not what you expected? This guest post from life coach Greg Gibbs shares his experience of the year of vibrational boot camp:
How many of us were super, super excited about 2012 and all it was promised or thought to bring?
Light workers or angels or Divine Beings would help us show the way to the 5th dimension, the world would change as we know it, there would be massive transformation and transcendence of the human race and for the planet, there would be massive change and upheaval, some would opt out, some would be thrilled, and some would be worried, and some would be, well, blasé about the whole year.
And let’s not forget about all of that energy shifting around for the full moons, new moons, eclipses, Saturn leaving Libra, and moving into Scorpio, not to mention all of those portals opening up on key dates (I forget them now, all a bit of blur, really), and what’s to come on the Solstice. End of the Mayan calendar and all that entails whether it’s a doomsday theory and the world will end, or it’s simply just the end of a very large cycle of time.
I, for one, was extremely excited for 2012. At the end of 2011 things, mostly, were starting to look brighter. And 2012 was going to amp up it all up.
From all the things I remember reading about planetary and ethereal energy speeding up, bodily changes commencing to activate 12 strand DNA, crystalline re-alignment, I wasn’t really sure what to make of it all. I’m going to admit it: I’m a bit of a metaphysical dope. Ninety percent of what I was attracting to read and hear about 2012 made no sense, certainly no scientific sense or seemed to have any basis in any reality that I was aware of. “My angels revealed to me…”, “last night the Pleaidean Council revealed to me…”, “the High Council of Lemuria are wanting to communicate the following important message to the Lightworkers of Earth, help is coming”? Fascinating, yet I remained dubious.
The more I read, the more I sifted, and importantly, the more I felt around inside, there was something in the ethers whether I was completely tapped into it or not. Let’s embrace it! Let’s do it! After all, I must have wanted to be here for it, or else, well, I wouldn’t be here, right?
Little did I know it was really vibrational boot camp that some of us had signed up for, and yeah, I chose not to read the fine print. Did you read it or did you skip over it like I did? Like glossing over the warnings that all kinds of nasty stuff might come up and there would be choices to make.
But, there was that sense of fabulous energy getting ready to bring about positive change that was so deliciously enticing.
And, there was a kind edge to contrast this year, but it was equally, if not more delicious and enticing. Good days were great, bad days had me reaching for the gasoline and matches to see how much more damage I might inflict upon myself, forgetting I’d be the one cleaning up the mess, charred bits and all.
My *stuff* came up in spits and spurts over the course of the year like it did for many of us. If you were focused on your thoughts and feelings and were smart, you dealt with things pretty much in the moment with grace and clarity, and moved on. If you were like me and opted for procrastination, there would come a day (I could feel it) when it would all go south and under.
And sure enough, not too long ago, all of what I chose to put off came to a head in a powerful, amazing, disturbing, geyser-like cesspool eruption. It was horrible and painful.
After everything erupted, it was impossible to ignore it. No sweeping under the carpet this time, this *stuff* is real.
I had no choice but to be really honest with myself and confront the results of my apparent dominant vibrational state. What sane person would create this horrible stinking foul mess of (mis)creation from limiting beliefs and lack? What had I been thinking and, importantly, what had I been feeling?
That’s when I heard the angelic song of clarity and realized this cesspool eruption was a gift.
We have always had the opportunity to choose anew, to create anew, but this year’s energy in the guise of vibrational boot camp helped me get to the simple nitty gritty.
Yeah, it took me a while, but that’s okay, I got there in the end: Choose for fear, again, or choose for love in all areas in all situations.
I did what I could in the moment and choose for love for myself. That’s where we have to start if we’re not there already. I understood this at a mind level, but I had been missing the point until I felt it in my heart.
Deciding to choose for love, I feel, was what 2012 was all about: A year of opportunities to experience contrast until we got to that visceral feeling place that our choice now must be for love—and it really is only the sane choice.
We are our own light workers. This is the first step of true awakening and empowerment—authentically feeling unconditional love for ourselves and remembering who we really are. And only from love can we truly connect and channel our Divinity and to begin to transform the planet to make Heaven on Earth.
