The Council of 12
Moving Forward in the Window of 2012
Through Selacia June 2009
In these recent months, as you have observed your world and noticed
increasing amounts of dysfunction, you may be asking how the multitude
of global problems can be remedied.
You also may be wondering how the world's disarray will impact your life
and your ability to thrive and live in joy. And you may be asking how
you can find your center when the world won't stop long enough for you
to catch your breath.
You may question how you can successfully navigate the great shift
happening in this window of 2012.
As you have listened to the news, or even observed people around you,
you have been reminded of familiar themes. These include the global
economic meltdown, the energy crisis, and a seemingly endless battle of
These themes are familiar on a number of levels, the most obvious being
their frequent mention in your media. To the extent that you feel
personally impacted by these things, they become even more familiar to
Consider the economic meltdown, for example. Perhaps you have real
concerns about your financial well being, your ability to provide for
your children, or the prospect of having even less money than you have
Even without these concerns, if your loved ones or coworkers are
stressed about finances, you likely will experience an indirect impact.
Money may not be at the top of your "worry list," yet the more you hear
about others' woes, the more that your own subconscious fears of lack
and limitation come to the surface.
The energy crisis, often linked with the environment and global warming,
is not an issue that will be going away anytime soon. This highly
politicized topic is now receiving a substantial amount of attention
worldwide, putting the issue of energy on the everyday person's radar.
When gas prices skyrocketed to record levels in summer 2008, the notion
of an energy crisis became personal for millions of people who either
drive or take public transportation. By now, you may have purchased a
more fuel-efficient car, added solar panels to your house, or found ways
to enjoy more activities close to home. Regardless, you have ongoing
reminders that this is a problem much bigger than you personally.
Battle of Ideas
The world's modern day conflicts between countries are focused more on
ideas than on territory. There is a growing understanding that battles
of ideas are even more problematical to resolve than the physical
turf-oriented wars of previous generations. Ideas in these days of
instant information dissemination can proliferate across borders like
An idea can take hold within someone half way around the world. A young
man in New York, for example, may speak a different language than the
extremists of a distant country, and have no previous training in the
ideas presented. However, if that young man is feeling lost or otherwise
disenfranchised from his society, he can be vulnerable to the
suggestions of others. These ideas can play upon his fears and his anger
at the unjust world he sees around him.
Propaganda and extremism are on the rise, showing up with much more
transparency than ever before. At the root of these responses are
fear-based energies that keep the old paradigm structures locked in
place. These energies include hatred, prejudice, a desire to control and
dominate, and a false viewing of others as the enemy.
It has been these energies throughout humanity's past that have led to
warfare on multiple levels-appearing as blockades, divisions of country
borders, trade embargoes, genocide, and other mass killings. Whether
humans wage bloody battles of physical conquest with weapons or
conflicts based on ideas, the underlying driving force of these battles
is the same.
From a higher spiritual perspective, there is no winning involved-in
either type of war.
On a personal level, if you take no interest in politics and watch
little television, you may feel insulated from this battle of ideas. To
be sure, though, the new more light-filled world that you seek to
inhabit cannot exist amidst this pervasive battle. Therefore, you will
want to care about this war of ideas, and you will want to address it in
your own personal way.
What You Can Do
How can you do this?
First, it is useful to remember that anything playing out in your world
is an outer manifestation of inner conflicts existing within the whole
Judgments of all kinds must cease for you to be free. You can judge
others as bad, and you can judge yourself as better than the others. Any
form of judgment will keep you in bondage. Judgment, both good and bad,
is tied to separation.
The idea of separation is a false identity that prevents you from
inhabiting your New Earth.
As long as you cling to notions of separation, you will be challenged to
find your center. You also will feel blocked from fully expressing your
Divine purpose on Earth.
For many people on a spiritual path, there is a tendency to view the
world's fear-based conflicts as separate and unfathomable. There is a
distancing and a horror often felt, as though the world's atrocities are
things only others could carry out. Oftentimes, there is smugness,
expressed as feelings of superiority and specialness.
When you approach it this way, you are living a lie of separation,
forgetting that you are an eternal being.
You Have Lived Before
You indeed have lived before, sometimes in quite different circumstances
than you now enjoy. You may have been born into much less fortunate
conditions, without access to spiritual teachings and without positive
role models to steer you in the direction of sanity.
In another time and place, without the awareness you have now, you could
have been subject to the same energies of meanness and retribution you
observe playing out in your current world's battle of ideas. You might
not have had the consciousness to avoid the temptations of those
energies. You may indeed have caused great harm to others.
Even if all of your previous incarnations were at the consciousness
level of a great spiritual teacher, your human DNA connects you with all
of humanity and with the lineages of humanity's past.
At the highest levels of truth, there is no separation. There is no good
and evil. There is no "you and them."
When you are vibrating at that highest level of truth, you see love and
Divine perfection everywhere. You recognize this energy in yourself, in
your outer world, and in the seemingly diverse people you meet.
Recognizing the Divine in Others
You are able to look past surface appearances and peoples' expression of
spiritual ignorance. You are able to look into their soul, and to know
that they are one with you. They have the same Divine spark that you do.
You recognize that.
You have compassion for the misguided people around you, understanding
that if they knew a better way, they would choose it. You know that they
are suffering. You have compassion when you see that they are creating
even more suffering for themselves by their current fear-based actions.
At the same time, you trust that these people will eventually-in some
lifetime-awaken and reconnect with their own enlightenment potential.
Meanwhile, as you observe and interact with people not yet fully awake,
you hold the space for them to awaken. One way you do this is to have
patience, and to show kindness even when someone else is mean. You hold
the space for others' awakening, also, by listening deeply and by being
very present. You teach them this way, too.
You teach others by your actions, by your words, and sometimes by your
silence. You show others, by your own example, how to be free of the
fear and judgment at the root of your world's battle of ideas.
Taking Care of Yourself
What else can you do?
The most useful thing you can do is to make a commitment to your own
self realization. As part of that, you can take action daily to better
understand yourself. This is not a surface-level knowing, but a deep
look into your inner motivations, your unique challenges, and your key
The knowing you seek goes beyond your humanness, yet it includes an
understanding of the various masks you have taken on without knowing.
You want to be able to discover those, and yet know all the while that
underneath the disguises, your Divine self sparkles like a diamond! It
is that sparkling self you seek to find.
Trust that you have an abundance of help to find this diamond during
this auspicious lifetime. The help available to you is both on the inner
and outer planes. It is ever present.
Go at your own pace, yet know that your soul may sometimes give you a
strong nudge! If you have felt these nudges in the past, you may have
thought of them as "wake up calls" or even as a "dark night of the
Preparing for 2012
It is not your imagination if you sense that the number and intensity of
nudges has intensified in the past few years. A wise part of you knows
that you live in a unique window of time ahead of 2012.
It is a pivotal opportunity for you and all of humanity to awaken more
fully and to make radically different choices in how you express your
humanness. These choices begin with you, and with how you approach
living on the Earth.
You are making choices already, of course. The idea here is to become
fully conscious of your choices, in present time as you contemplate them
and make them. Your choices can no longer be secrets, your being the
"last to know" their impact. You must be willing to see how your energy
is playing out. Becoming awake to this helps you to become responsible
for your own forward movement. When you do this, you realize that no one
can hold you in limbo except you.
The wise aspect of you understands what is happening, and fully accepts
it. It has a timeless insight, along with a knowing about past and
future cycles That part of you is aware of your involvement in previous
great shifts on your planet, and knows what you will need to do
differently this time in order to catapult yourself into a light-filled
This wise part of you, possessing a keen knowing about what you have
incarnated to accomplish, is now turning up the volume of wake up calls.
It is time for you to remember.
This remembering and understanding of self obviously does not happen
overnight, but is a process of unfolding over time.
The remembering you seek to have is heightened when you can remember to
look at your life as though it were a mirror.
This mirror is symbolic, yet it is all around you. You see the mirror
when you become a conscious observer of your life, watching yourself.
What do you observe?
· You observe your mind. You track the pattern of your thoughts as you
respond to life events and decide what those things mean. You notice how
your thoughts are influenced by other people and outer world
· You pay attention to your emotions, learning to understand how those
feeling responses trigger thoughts leading to sabotage and suffering.
· You notice what you do with your body, how you take care of it, and
the subtle messages it gives you when you are off-balance.
· You get in touch with your habitual way of being with yourself. You
discover how to be with yourself in all sorts of situations, noticing
how you respond when you feel alone, left out, criticized, and
· You learn what brings you joy, how that joy feels to you, and what
within you gets in the way of accessing that natural state of joy more
of the time.
As you see dysfunctional things about yourself that you did not see
before, you have an opportunity to heal them.
In that process, you will get in touch with your own personal battle of
ideas. One example is how you can love and hate someone at the same
time. Another is how you can think that your solution for something is
the only remedy, refusing to allow another person to have their view.
This is the type of inner war all humans have. You will learn to
appreciate what others struggle with as you learn about your own
The Discovery That Sets You Free
As you observe these battles of ideas, you will discover the
connectedness and similarities of all on your planet. You will know
beyond a doubt the oneness and love that was always there.
This discovery will go beyond words, beyond concepts, and beyond new age
thinking that simply tells you that this is so. It will be something
that you sense in your heart, and a truth that you know and feel with
your entire being. When that happens, you will be free.
As you continue the journey of rediscovering your Divine nature, we
surround you with our love and blessings. We are The Council of 12.
