Dear ones, we greet you with great love and in celebration as the New earth Year begins.

It will be a year of change both within and without for everyone, even those choosing to remain comfortably settled in the old. You have done the preparation work and are now ready to live and experience the new.

On earth there is always the temptation to fear–fear for Gaia and fear for self. An inordinate fear of some person, place, or thing bestows on it power that in and of itself, it does not have, adding energy to and keeping alive the illusion. This may be difficult for some to accept and if it is so for you, take it into a contemplative meditation and work with it, asking for understanding.

In this new year you will see many begin to empower themselves, becoming more physically, , and spiritually strong. Outrageous proclamations, rules, and actions will serve to push even the most timid into action allowing them to reclaim their innate power. Thus, much of what you imagine and fear will not take place because you as empowered people, will not allow it.

The energy of the old no longer suits an majority. The consciousness of the people is the government, but the majority have not realized this and instead have looked to self promoting others to make decisions for them.

One by one, individuals are awakening and re-claiming the power they ignorantly gave to those happy to claim it for themselves. For most, the seceding of personal power began in other lifetimes and has been into this one through memory. Much world chaos at this time is indeed the expression of awakening personal power but it is being interpreted through the three dimensional system.

We see in this new year a majority courageously up for earth, her people, and her creatures–pushed to take a stand by the actions of those who wish to move the evolutionary clock backwards through force in an effort to keep the status quo.

Maintain energies of truth and Light in your consciousness always dear ones, observing and taking action as you may be but never forgetting that there is in reality, only ONE POWER.

Change frightens those who translate change into loss–loss of what is familiar and known and thus perceived to be necessary. Until an individual begins to realize the true nature of himself as well as all others, he will continue to assign power for or to everything in his life and act accordingly. However, even in situations that are negative, destructive, or extremely unpleasant, there remain those who refuse to change or move on because familiarity seems easier.
