2012-Aligning With Your Divine Within - A Mayan Perspective

As we fast approach the time when the ancient Mayans forecast the coming of a new age for this planet; confusion seems to be a constant.

What will happen? Is this the end of the world? Or, is it the end of the world we have been accustomed to living within; our current paradigm?

As you wrestle with placing yourself in position to be included in the paradigm shift; how do your thoughts, feelings and actions determine which experience will be yours going forward?

"Human beings are made of body, mind and spirit.
Of these, spirit is primary,
for it connects us to the source of everything,
the eternal field of consciousness."
~Deepak Chopra

As you focus your attention upon understanding the current shift in consciousness; look at how your current thoughts, feelings and actions are either in alignment with this new emerging paradigm or are misaligned with these emerging energy patterns.

How you think, emote and make choices determines how you ride this wave; if you are focused upon love, peace, harmony, oneness, and alignment with authentic you then you are riding the wave.

If not, you may miss the wave altogether.

“It's not the world that needs to change - it's our consciousness we must raise”
~Rasheed Ogunlaru

Yes, your awakening and mine, are subject to how much the individual consciousness is resonant  or non-resonate with the emerging new paradigm.

Make no mistake...


As we awaken to the energies of the emerging paradigm, we discover our focus moves from the outside in to the inside out.

Seeking a leader to follow vs. being the leader you seek in our own life.

This awakening is urging you and me to go within to find our natural/authentic alignment. To connect and align with source energy and flow with the vibrational energies of the new; as we move away from the old notions that no longer serve us.

How do you and I recognize this 'Spiritual Awakening'; when it's occuring?

Please check out the symptoms below; how many of these are you currently experiencing?


If you are currently experiencing any or all of these symptoms of experiencing a spiritual awakening; now is the time for actions within the rehlm of your thoughts and feelings. These are the primary 2 areas where your attention may yield positive live-changing results.

You have dominion over your thoughts and emotions and you are able, with training, to effect proactive changes that will enhance your life ourcomes through enhanced vibrational alignment with your natural/authentic self!

Below you will find a two-part video that aligns with what 2012 is about.

Not as many have expressed, is it the end of the world at hand. What you and I as spiritually aware and open to expanded consciousness will experience is highlighted in the powerful two-part video below.

Please relax and open yourself to

2012 - A Message of Hope, Part 1


2012 - A message of hope, Part 2

Many people have spoken of the mysteries of The Maya and their methods of study of long-term global change.

Many points of view have emerged and yet they tend to embrace either fear-based "the world is ending" thought forms or expansive heart-centered focus upon an Awakening occurring within our collective consciousness thought forms.

Now it's time to hear from an ancient Mayan decendant, Ac Tah.

In his book “The Night of the Last Katun"  Ac Tah reveals the circumstances surrounding the departure /disappearance of his Mayan ancestors and of their plan to return.
Please take a few minutes to allow for your consciousness to expand in relationship with what the Mayans see as what will ocur on 12/21/12 and beyond.

Mayan explanation of what will happen on 21st December 2012


When you follow what the Mayan's are looking at for 12/21/12 you will see one way for you to participate in the consciousness expansion which is the core of the paradigm shift.

Thus you can participate in the coming change of consciousness in a way which is consistant with the Mayan intent and expand your personal consciousness to become a part of the change by becoming a "human magnet"!

gratitude: a state of authentic living

This coming Thursday, November 22; we, in America, celebrate Thanksgiving. This is a holiday whose core value is found within gratitude.

According to Webster's on line dictionary, gratitude originated in
"Middle English, from Anglo-French or Medieval Latin; Anglo-French, from Medieval Latin gratitudo, from Latin gratus grateful."

Webster's definition for gratitude is "the state of being grateful : hankfulness."

When you live life, from a state of gratitude; your life enfolds as a beautiful loving experience. Your experience of each day is richer and the results you seek are beautifully and lovingly expressed as your dreams and aspirations manifest with ease demonstrating beauty and harmony beyond your wildest expectations. 

When you align with the divine within your attitudes and actions flow from the authentic you; the person who identifies with unconditional love and acceptance of self and others.

When you withhold nothing of your authentic self and are free to express yourself from your inner divine; your results are in alignment with what's best for you and all whose paths you cross.

Belief in competition limits the true expression of your authentic self which is loving and free of all restrictive fear-based  beliefs.
Once you shed these fear-based beliefs you may now collaborate with others to solve the problems our world currently faces. Our current ego-driven and fear-based belief systems are truly the cause of most of the pain we individually and collectively are now experiencing in our world.

As individuals and as a collective world population, we must break the strangle hold that living in an ego-driven and fear based mind-set has upon us.

It is through individual and collective consciousness raising that we are free to set our course upon building a world where all share in the abundance that exists upon our Earth.


('Hailed as "one of the greatest minds of our times, R. Buckminster Fuller was renowned for his comprehensive perspective on the world's problems. For more than five decades, he developed pioneering solutions that reflected his commitment to the potential of innovative design to create technology that does "more with less" and thereby improves human lives.')

Living in a state of gratitude is a target that will free you to live the life in which beautiful dreams are comprised and share a world harmoniously crafted through unconditional love!

For your further enlightenment into the true nature of gratitude, please take a few minutes to enjoy:

Gratitude - A Louie Schwartzberg Original Short Film

Yours in gratitude; thank you for sharing in these thoughts with me and adding your consciousness to those grounded in unconditional love and acceptance. Those of us who are seeking to live authentically.

Authentically You - Natures Greatest Miracle

"This above all:
To thine own self be true,
And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man."
 - Hamlet, Shakespeare

Being true to yourself is one of the keys to your alignment with authentic happiness. That being said; as our society has become so complex individuals have lost the ability to 'connect' with natural environment.

Our ancestors were in an enlightened relationship with nature. They were taught, as young children, to be aware of the relationship with nature and to cherish it. That relationship enjoyed a harmonious nature between environment and man.

During subsequent generations we became more indoctinated with a European concept of control of nature. This mind-set moved us into a different type of relationship with our environment; away from mutual benefit to control and manipulation.

In the current world culture; each of us is constantly exposed to messages designed to control both your thoughts and behaviors.  Some of the typical methods used to control mass population mind-set have been and  are :

  • Denial of education for the masses of population; or minority groups.
  • Disenfranchisement of voting and other rights through laws, regulations and tactics.
  • Mass-media manipulation. including, but not limited to:

    Distraction by nationalism;

    Straw man fallacy -

    (The "straw man fallacy" is the lumping of a strong  opposition argument opposition  ; together with one or many weak ones to create a simplistic weak argument that can easily be refuted.) ;

    Distraction by scapegoat;

    Distraction by phenomenon -(A risky but effective strategy summarized best, perhaps, by David Mamet's 1997 movie Wag the Dog, by which the public can be distracted, for long periods of time, from an important issue, by one which occupies more news time. When the strategy works, you have a war or other media event taking attention away from misbehaving or crooked leaders. When the strategy does not work, the leader's misbehavior remains in the press, and the war is derided as an attempted distraction.)   

    Distraction by semantics;

    Distraction by regression; 

    (This method uses the previous state of the opponent propaganda to prevent the negotiation of actual issues.)

    Distraction by misleading;

    (This method injects false issues into the opponent's propaganda or attempts to create connections with falsities. Repetition of falsehoods from numerous outlets, nearly simultaneously, is one of the most effective means to mislead by distraction.)

    Distraction by horror;

    (This method tries to create a connection between an opponent's propaganda and horrific events. (For example when a minority is being arrested by the police and one attempts to create a connection with past unjust actions)

     ~excerpts above on Mass-Media deception taken from Mashpedia


  • The Big Lie ("The great masses will more easily fall victim to a big lie than to a small one" ~Adolph Hitler)
  • Creating a culture of fear.
  • Indoctrination
  • Propaganda

"Common sense is the collection of prejudices acquired by age eighteen." ~Albert Einstein

"A person does not have to be behind bars to be a prisoner.
People can be prisoners of their own concepts and ideas. They
can be slaves to their own selves." – Maharaji

As the old paradigm is fading and the new emerging paradigm is accounting for even greater penetration into mass consciousness; we are observing new movements and an awakening within the general Earth population.

Mass Awakening

These moments and movements, fostered through evolving consciousness coupled with the internet and other technologies that are the Telecommunications Earth Grid. (a world-wide intercommunication grid; essentially allowing commerce, communication and collaborations to flourish). This, in turn, allows movements to 'express the vision' to  a larger world-wide following as well as to quicken the organization aspect of any serious movement.

Our world has most recently experienced this effect in the freedom movements within Egypt, Libya, Syria and many others over our globe. The grid played an integral part in those transformational movements from totalitarian to evolving democratic systems of governance.

The leaders, visionaries, individuals; all awakening to deeper perceptions through mutual alignment with both an emerging awareness and a focus on trusting the inner-guidance matrix (intuition) we all possess!

"If you change the way you look at things; the things you look at change."
~Wayne Dyer

Your unauthentic perceptions prejudice your worldview; by distorting your lenses of awareness. These distortions negatively impact upon both your self-view and your relationship with the natural alignment with God/Source Energy.   To the degree you are out of vibrational alignment with your source; to that degree will your happiness and peace of mind be frustrated.

"Authentic happiness involves living a life full of appreciation - being mindful of each and every moment - and passionately pursuing knowledge, friendships, health and career goals."

~Dr. Martin Seligman 

As you embrace your authentic self you will discover your true resonance frequency signature your perceptional awareness will transform the way you see yourself and your relationship with all that is.

Look within to align with your Higher Self as you discover;

(from author Jared Acres http://www.youtube.com/user/JaredAkers?feature=watch)

As always; life offers you a banquet of choices that surface within the countless relationships with which you are aligned through your unique energy signature. This vibrational signature or coupling  (which is configured by the combination of your thoughts and emotions and the degree to which you are operating with a reactive or reflective individual matrix program) is defining your moment-to-moment experience.

Proactive change works best within a loving and nurturing environment; one of your own creation that reflects the values you aspire to live by.

"Feelings are much like waves, we can't stop them from coming but we can choose which one to surf. " ~Jonatan Mårtensson

 To fully cooperate with the divine awakening you need to make choices that support your enhanced alignment with your authentic self; to 'surf the emotional waves' of the emerging light-filled paradigm.

What I believe you will discover is that you are

Natures Greatest Miracle!!!

Light & Love,

Occupy Yourself: Align Your Awareness with Oneness

 Greetings and welcome to our insight-seeking post dedicated to enhancing your relationship with Oneness; the consciousness of life!

"We are on a journey of becoming that which we already are. That is the impossible paradox of our lives."

As spiritual teacher, Leonard Jacobson, reflects, in his quote posted above; your insight-seeking journey through this life is about reclaiming your birthright!

Your 3 dimensional upbringing on planet Earth has altered your perception of yourself and your experience.

Even though you and I are multidimensional being's; the 3-dimensional matrix has severely and negatively effected your ability to experience the other vibrational dimensions you are being exposed to.

The 3rd dimensional Earth matrix has long-ago been corrupted by misunderstanding, fear, greed, avarice, deceit, culture-framing, and duality mind-set.  Global consciousness matrix manipulations by special interest groups and powerful individuals/families, intent upon gaining and maintaining power and control over the masses of other humans, have forged a planetary matrix that is so corrupted that it is no longer functional.

Think about each of our systems of support for people; lets look at what some notable Earth fellows observed :

  • "In the absence of justice, what is sovereignty but organized robbery?  ~St. Augustine
  • "It is a miracle that curiosity survives formal education." ~Albert Einstein
  •  "We create an environment where it is alright to hate, to steal, to cheat, and to lie if we dress it up with symbols of respectability, dignity and love."  ~Whitney Moore, Jr.
  •   "We are living in a science-fiction nightmare where children are gasping for breath on bad-air days because somebody gave money to a politician. And my children and the kids of millions of other Americans can no longer go fishing and eat their catch because somebody gave money to a politician."
    ~Robert Kennedy, Jr.
  • "It is essential to release humanity from the false fixations of yesterday, which seem now to bind it to a rationale of action leading only to extinction." ~Buckminster Fuller
  • "We are living beyond our means. As a people we have developed a life-style that is draining the earth of its priceless and irreplaceable resources without regard for the future of our children and people all around the world." ~Margaret Mead

  • "One has to realize that the powerful industrial groups concerned in the manufacture of arms are doing their best in all countries to prevent the peaceful settlement of international disputes, and that rulers can achieve this great end only if they are sure of the vigorous support of the majority of their peoples." ~Albert Einstein

When you embrace the consciousness of Oneness you embark upon a course that will ultimately set you free of the fear-based beliefs (including duality) that keep you captive to the old paradigm that inhibits the freedom to act from the natural you.

As you open to the consciousness of Oneness you develop enhanced ability to:

  • Align with the divine within.
  • See clearly through the self-limiting illusions to which you have become addicted.
  • Reclaim the power that is rightly yours; as you learn to self-determine your future.
  • Expand your ability to see the natural connections nature offers.
  • Feel the deep connectedness between you and your environment.
  • Become more aware about how your actions effect all your relationships.
  • Experience greater feedback from dimensions other than 3rd; while developing a more conscious relationship with yourself.

To further explore the benefits associated with embracing Oneness; please follow the link below to receive your copy of a powerful
Free eBook: The Benefits of Mystical Oneness
by Wayne (Wirs)

The following video is a beautiful feeling expression of the world seen through eyes aligned with the consciousness of Oneness; relax and take in the wonder that is:


"When we try to pick out anything by itself, we
find it hitched to everything else in the universe."
~John Muir

Oneness is life's reality; allow yourself to witness the interconnected nature of all life as you open your awareness to what is and has always been the nature of nature!

Align with The Power In You - Through Heart-Centered Focus

Greetings fellow intrepid explorer; as we continue our look at heart-centered living,

Please consider, for a moment, what might help you focus upon this post; beginning to end?  How about this insight from Abraham?

"Someone who takes the time to understand their relationship with source, who actively seeks alignment with their broader perspective, who deliberately seeks and finds alignment with who-they-really-are, is more charismatic, more attractive, more effective, and more powerful than a group of millions who have not achieved this alignment."
~Abraham Hicks

I hope you're still along for today's brief ride through the mystery/mastery of your life's potential; it's awesome!!!

To get you into the proper emotional state of readiness to unleash your access to greater power; I offer you Paul Collier's the majestic and beautiful 

 The Power Within You

OK, I hear you thinking, that video has me in this expansive emotional place; now I'm looking for the payoff; how do I get to enjoy greater personal power?

"Remember that you are the source for what you attract in the world." 
 ~Dr Joe Rubino 

Through the process of Occupying Yourself you will enjoy enhanced insight into enlightened perspective. J.K. Rowling, author and transformational thinker, expresses a universal truth about personal power when she demystifies how to gain access.

 “We do not need magic to transform our world. We carry all of the power we need inside ourselves already.” 

Occupy Yourself, is a movement about coming into a natural alignment with authentic you; the person you were intended to be.

When you do so; life is sweeter and your relationships are more harmonious.

Now Some Thoughts on Your Heart Center

To fully understand the power of heart-centered living; viewing this powerful video from Spiritual Science.net.

Do you now see just how powerful your heart-center is and how your readiness for ascension and the galactic upgrade depends upon your relationship with your heart?

What specific benefits might you expect from living a heart-centered life?
  • Enhanced emotional balance, inner peace, and joy in living.  
  • Greater access to experience of one's true nature
  • Enhanced ability to experience compassion, wisdom, love and appreciation for all relationships.
  • Accelerated healing of physical, mental or emotional blockages.
  • Enhanced ability to let go of fearful, obsessive and self-destructive behavior patterns
  • Enhanced willingness and ability to feel the full spectrum of feelings.
  • Augmented energy, creativity and passion for life. 
 Any of the above appeal to you?

In closing today's thoughts on living a heart-centered life as a vital aspect of Occupy Yourself let me share some thoughts by Evita Ochel author, speaker and holistic living expert. (Evolving Beings)

 "A person who has a high degree of self-love is incapable for example of being in a destructive relationship, or over-eating, or using toxic substances, or subjecting themselves to any other physical, mental, emotional or spiritual harm. The higher your level of self-love the more compassion you exercise in all of your thoughts, words and actions towards the self and all of life’s creation." 

As mystics of both ancient and current time periods have concluded; and is expressed with elegance by Antoine de Saint-Exupery below:

Wishing you a divinely inspired heart-centered life-journey leading you into perfect alignment with your unique and essential space within your sacred heart.

Heart-Centered Living - A Powerful Key to Occupy Yourself

"Heart Centered Living ….. Learning to allow your personal story to unfold, trusting in your own abilities, and putting this essential practice into your daily life."  ~Tammye Dunn

In our continuing collaboration on the Occupy Yourself movement this post is dedicated to offering further insights into keys to enhancing your alignment with the divine within.

Through our continuing search we are discovering that the focus of this blog is looking at just how Occupy Yourself  allows us a vehicle through which to enhance our   working knowledge of the process of aligning with the divine within.

It is this inner search  and alignment process that establishes a platform through which to establish two-way communication with God/Source Energy.

Heart-Centered Living; a skills-set Re-Awakening within us! 

What is heart-centered living and why is it timely now?

"There has always been a longing in the human heart for a more just, free, loving and creative society. But it was never before possible to fulfill these aspirations, because we had neither the evolutionary drivers and global crises to force us to change, nor did we have the scientific and technological powers that can free us from the limitations of scarcity, poverty, disease, and ignorance. This is the time of awakening for the social potential movement." ~Barbara Marx Hubbard

Barbara Marx Hubbard, a renown futurist, supports the notion that now is a time of planetary enlightenment and expansion of human potentials.

Barbara is one of many enlightened voices who are pointing the way to this period, within which we are now living. This awakening phase is a timely one for those of us who are seeking enhanced alignment with our true nature and the divine within.

Yet another powerful spokesperson for insight into heart-centered living is New York Times, best selling author and explorer into the nature of mankind, Greg Braden.

Gregg's thoughts, below, offer an encapsulation of heart-centered living.

"When we form heart-centered beliefs within our bodies, in the language of physics we're creating the electrical and magnetic expression of them as waves of energy, which aren't confined to our hearts or limited by the physical barrier of our skin and bones. So clearly we're "speaking" to the world around us in each moment of every day through a language that has no words: the belief-waves of our hearts.In addition to pumping the blood of life within our bodies, we may think of the heart as a belief-to-matter translator. It converts the perceptions of our experiences, beliefs, and imagination into the coded language of waves that communicate with the world beyond our bodies. Perhaps this is what philosopher and poet John Mackenzie meant when he stated, "The distinction between what is real and what is imaginary is not one that can be finely maintained ... all existing thing are ... imaginary."
~Gregg Braden

As no less an intellect than Albert Einstein implored,
"Imagination is more important than knowledge."

Returning to our focus of understanding the key awareness focus for this post; Heart-centered Living.
Below is a video that gets to the core of thinking about Heart-Centered Living by Gregg Braden; author, scientist, teacher.

Ancient Understanding 


To establish a baseline for looking at Gregg's hypothesis on Heart-Centered Living; let's look at it's components.

  • "Just as ripples radiate from the place where a stone is thrown into a pool of water, our sometime-unconscious thoughts, feelings, emotions, and beliefs create the disturbances" in the Field that become the blueprints for our lives."~Gregg Braden  How we consciously create our individual template through which we experience 3-D Earth School is very influential in our life experience.
  • "Living as if the world out there were somehow separate from us opens the door to the belief system of judgement and the chemical expressions of that judgment in our bodies. Thus we tend to see our world in terms of good germs and bad germs, and use words such as toxins and waste to describe the by-products of the very functions that give us life. It is in such a world that our bodies may become a combat zone for forces at odds with one another, creating the biological battlegrounds that play out as illness and disease. The holistic perspective of the Essenes sees all facets of our bodies as elements of one sacred and divine force moving through creation. Each is an expression of God. In a world where all that we may know and experience originates from such a unified source, bacteria, germs, and the by-products of our bodies work together to imbue our bodies with strength and life. This view invites us to redefine the tears, perspiration, blood, and products of digestion that we have known as waste as sacred elements of the earth that have served us, rather than abhorrent by-products that must be eliminated, discarded, and destroyed."~Gregg Braden Light leads to wisdom access opportunity; embrace and savor the "side-effects"  '

To call anything in our body “junk” is naïve because nature would never create something that has no role in the evolution of the Universe. Our junk DNA contains the higher and more powerful strands of our DNA. These strands hold the key to our true history and evolution. The reason that they do not seem to function is because they are turned off. This is necessary because our bodies have not evolved enough yet to handle the functions of the junk DNA. At our current state of evolution, turning on big portions of our junk DNA would destroy our health. Our current bodies cannot handle the high-frequency energies that travel through our junk DNA. The only way we can turn on portions of our junk DNA without destroying our bodies is to slowly turn them on in sequences.  Scientists have known for decades that our solar system has been moving through a more energetically charged area of our galaxy, which is known as the Galactic Center. Because this section of our galaxy is more energetically charged, it is causing certain portions of our junk DNA to slowly turn on. This galactic event can cause us to have more vivid dreams, physical pains, stress, past memories recall and psychic experiences. If we are not ready to deal with these events, our lives may be very chaotic in the next few years." ~Pao L. Chang author of Staradigm: A Blueprint for Spiritual Growth, Happiness, Success and Well-Being

  • "It's easy to see why we struggle with our relationships; especially the primary one; the one with yourself.As we live the greatest shift in power, wealth, technology and beliefs the world has ever seen, our personal choices of cooperation and sharing become our collective answer to the crises of our shift. This Evolutionary Leadership group is simply giving a name and a focus to the cooperative movement that is emerging spontaneously throughout the world." ~Gregg Braden  Yes, essentially by awareness of your relationship with all-that-is; your template is enhanced to respond positively with the incoming frequency that is the New Earth!

Remember, fellow seekers, we are seeking individual and global enlightenment and empowerment by fostering enhanced insights that incite change that mirrors that which is now occurring through galactic upgrade of energy.

Empowering yourself involves reclaiming your personal power through your enlightened choices and relationships.

Learning to trust your heart-center can be an effective tool in reawakening both to your souls purpose and to higher wisdom and all knowledge accumulated through your numerous reincarnations; within this dimension as well as others.

Believe in yourself and the beauty of your mission; my heart to yours!
