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:

Gregory Gibbs, life coachHow 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.

    Wow! Vibrational bootcamp! That makes so much sense. I have had a greater awareness of extreme contrasts in my life this year. I have also had a greater awareness of LOA working in my life. I don’t feel that I am in vibrational alignment as much as I would like to be, but it is getting easier to find relief.

  • Annette says:

    Thank you Greg – an awesome post. Funny how trying to focus on one thing led to the other’s appearance . .but then that’s how it works.
    I was watching a show about the Shroud of Turin, and this comment made me sit up and think ( I am paraphrasing here):
    You cannot see the image when you are close to the shroud. When you are up close, all you see are stains and brown spots. It is only when you step way back that the contrast appears and the pattern emerges.
    I love that description!

  • MissyB says:

    Needed this – thanks. And I know I’m meant to be here because I too have read that little known book Nat quotes. I now know what 2012 and it’s choppy ride was all about.

  • Greg says:

    Thank you, everyone, for taking the time to read, to ponder, and to respond! My year was pretty good, for the most part, but, oh, some of those moments of contrast! Phew! And there is still a bit more bubbling, but nothing like a few weeks ago, gladly!
    And, Nat, I totally agree with “taking the next step to demonstrate our love is also vital”–and taking things further by demonstrating “our love by sharing our truth without worry about what people will think, or by reminding ourselves to choose a higher vibe, or by choosing to feel love even when we think someone or something has wronged us”–it’s what we came to do, so we need to get on with it!
    I loved the podcast and will check out the book recommendation and it reminds me to see if I can find Jeannette’s The Art of Self Love.
    Just over a week to go, but if we’ve done our “work,” graduation maybe as early as tomorrow, 12/21 🙂 Blessings to all of you and best wishes for a fabulous and enchanting 2013.

    All I can say is that I truly hope 2013 will be Delicious…I have read & appreciated what you said but tend, of course, not to keep it constantly in mind, sigh! And being trapped in the human condition is a most unpretty sight, ha! To Opulence, Prosperity, Beauty, Ease & Flow, bring them on, had soooooo enough of the Bootcamp I could SCREAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAM!

  • Sara says:

    Well said, Greg. 🙂 I hear all that loud and clear. This year for me was all about learning how to really make the best of everything and letting myself witness what happens when I’m willing to do that.
    (Building capacity for willingness has been my thing lately.)
    The subtle internal shifts I made in the early months of February and March influenced a delicious, magical summer experience that seemed to last from April to October. And I was having such a great time that I forgot about how much I used to hate the town I’d been living in. (Imagine that, lol!!) Consequently, all of that led to an off the charts geographical change and a laundry list of other great things.
    All of that said, underneath all those delicious results, it has absolutely been a boot camp in re-learning how to allow what I specifically and uniquely want. And also a boot camp in learning what it feels like and looks like for me to dwell in that sweet spot of desire-meets-allowing. Very delicious, and also very different from what I thought it was supposed to be. 🙂

  • Janette says:

    Wonderful post, Greg, thank you.
    “We are our own light-workers” – AMEN!!!

  • TerriC says:

    Absolutely beautiful, Greg! You have given me so much encouragement, direction and guidance – I truly appreciate you!! Again you demonstrate the “how” – which I get to mean that it is possible to sift, to re-adjust, to release and have more space for love and light to be present!! Thank you for your directness, honesty and presence. All the best to you now and in 2013. You ROCK!! *Big Love*

  • Validation! I just posted a podcast episode today all about the importance of self-love. I think “authentically feeling unconditional love for ourselves and remembering who we really are” is important but I also think taking the next step to demonstrate our love is also vital. We demonstrate our love by sharing our truth without worry about what people will think, or by reminding ourselves to choose a higher vibe, or by choosing to feel love even when we think someone or something has wronged us. We’ve had many opportunities to remind ourselves to choose love. The natural disasters and the Newtown, CT tragedy are some of the most recent. I wonder if we can get to a place where we don’t need the extreme contrasts to get us to choose love.
    I just read a great book my Kamal Ravikant called ‘Love Yourself Like Your Life Depends on It’. In it he shares how he transformed his life through love. I talk about some of highlights from his book in my podcast.
    For me personally, I needed to learn this year to be more compassionate with myself, to give myself more credit for what I’ve done and to open my heart a little bigger to include myself there. Like you said Greg: “We are our own lightworkers.”
    Here’s the link to my podcast on love if anyone is interested in listening to it:

  • Melba says:

    Great post, Greg! I think you pretty much nailed it for a lot of folks! For me personally, there have been times in 2012 when it felt like literally pushing through huge mud piles….or other kind of piles. Then about mid summer, the path got lighter with great shifting! I have really and finally learned to be present in the moment and keep with the flow…much less struggle that way. The best to you, Coach, in 2013. Your personal work and professional work have been a source of beauty and light! Love heals.
