Winter Solstice & The New Age

As High Voltage continues to evolve, expect more Health/Wellness concepts, reviews and tips in my column. Starting right now…

You see, over the last few years I’ve turned to various types of Yoga & Meditation as a form of exercise, a source of knowledge and a light in the darkness; settling on Kundalini Yoga as the method that aligns perfectly with me. And the next three days (starting today) are the most important days in our spirit life as we come to the end of the Piscean Age and step into the Age of Aquarius.

Today, December 21st, is the Winter Solstice. It’s also the day the Mayan’s predicted the world would end, however, we’re still here! What’s amazing is how precisely the Mayan calendar was able to pinpoint the alignment of the planets. This Solstice the Sun will be almost perfectly aligned with the plane of The Milky Way (the entire galaxy!). This only occurs every 26,000 years!

Now the Mayan’s also said that those who meditate in this window (of alignment) of time will be the leaders of mankind entering into the new consciousness. How cool, right?

The window of time started this morning at 3:11am, will hit its peak from 3:07pm to 3:18pm on Saturday, December 22nd, and will leave it’s max point at 3:11am on Monday, December 24th. Just in time to enjoy your Christmas Eve. If you’re not much for meditating, I opened a great letter from Christine Hassler today and thought I’d share this as a simple exercise:

It is 12.21.12. According to the Mayan calendar today was supposed to be the end of the world. Obviously we are all still here – whew! But none of us really thought the world was going to end and we are actually excited because today marks the end of an era.

12.21.21 marks the end of the world as we know it in that there is a certain field being created today that makes new paradigms, new ways of thinking, relating, creating, and being possible. It’s a new era of possibility and I want you to take advantage of it!

Don’t let today go by just like any other day. If your favorite store was having a 75% off sale, wouldn’t you take advantage of it? So take advantage of the amazing clearance opportunity the Universe is offering today by declaring what you want to end in your world. I suggest actually writing a list of what you’d like to put a stop to in your life. Think about your beliefs, actions, habits, ways of being, and even relationships or situations you’d like to shift.

For instance . . .

Limiting beliefs that completely contradict what you want. Self-doubt. Self-criticism. Gossip. Lying. Toxic relationships. Patterns of numbing yourself through food, alcohol, shopping, watching TV, etc. Comparison. Blame. Stress. Resentment. Scarcity thinking. Isolation. Regret. Allowing fear to stop you. Complaining. Excuses, excuses, excuses.

It’s time to release the illusion that you are alone and open yourself up to love.
It’s time to end thoughts of scarcity and trust in the abundance of the Universe.
It’s time to stop being so freaking hard on yourself and start seeing yourself the way God sees you – as absolutely perfect just the way you are!!

It’s time to stop making excuses and start doing the things you dream about.

After you write your list of what you want to END on 12.21.12, burn it. Or at the very least rip it up into tiny little pieces, throw it away and then take out the trash! Next light a candle, say a prayer of intention, and create a new list that describes the world you want to BEGIN to create today.

In this new era, who do you want to be? What does the fullest expression of YOU look like? If you stopped caring what other people think, how free would you feel? If you stopped fearing failure, what would you do?

Even with the tremendous energy that is present, nothing really changes until you change the world inside of you. And you are not just doing this for you. Every time any of us makes a positive shift inside, we impact the world. We are all connected. Each one of us matters. You matter. How will you change the world by changing the world inside you? 


Enjoy the Winter Solstice. Happy Holidays!
