“Heart Is Where the Home Is”

inner warmth“Heart Is Where the Home Is”
Isaac George, with
Archangel Ariel
December 19th, 2012

You stand on the threshold of many changes, many challenges and infinite opportunities. The arrival of the stargate of 2012 is now but a few short days ahead, as you count time.  Many have awaited that day with a sense of hope, wonder, or in some cases, trepidation.  There have been countless prophetic pronouncements about the Mayan prophecy encoded within its calendric system, and an endless stream of speculation and prognostication about what it all means for humanity and Planet Earth, some of which have revolved around themes of Earth changes or cosmic collisions. Will there be a magnetic or physical Polar shift? Or will a rogue planet sideswipe Earth creating untold havoc and death? Will ET’s land and save humanity from itself?  Though some of these things are possibilities, the probabilities most likely to manifest center on some kind of magnetic shift or anomaly.  We don’t recommend viewing this is something that will end life as you know it, but it will alter life as you have known it. This is the good news…that there is no bad news.  Change will continue to be the most reliable forecast to report on.  We cannot even know for sure what may or will occur, because you are partly the creators of the collective experience…physical realities mirror and mimic interior realities. It cannot be otherwise.

One of the more popular manifestations of the prophecies is the three days of darkness scenario, or 3DD. This prophecy has been popularized and juiced up by some New Agers for almost two decades, although it originated mostly in some of the statements in the Christian Bible about the future of mankind by Yeshua the Christ, and also from the allegorical language of the Book of Revelations by St. John.  The Book of Daniel in your Old Testament has also provided a lot of colourful imagery that certain evangelical Christians seem to be particularly fond of. In any case, we would like to offer an angelic perspective about the aforementioned laundry list of apocalyptic annotations.  That was a fun sentence to construct, don’t you think?  Ahh, we may be sounding a bit too glib for the times, but seriously, humor has a way of smoothing the fear out of the creases of the ego.  Ooops!  There we go again.

In the final analysis, do you trust Life?  Are you listening to your heart? Are you spending  too much of your time looking at the state of the human condition and thinking “they’ll never wake up in time” and feeling sad or stressed out that the Planet has reached the environmental tipping point and is now in inevitable terminal decline?  Do you feel that it’s entirely up to the human race to choose and to direct itself towards Paradise?  Do you ever wish that everyone would just see things the way you do, then the world would be a better place?  Another strategy is ‘be the change you want to see in the world’.  We offer an alternative: “Be that which your Heart tells you You are.”  Attempts to change yourself without trusting in Life, which is to say trusting in God or Spirit, is an exercise in futility. What humanity and the Planet require more than anything right now is a return to real spirituality, for only through real trust in the Source of All can real solutions be realized.

You may be thinking “What’s Ariel on about? Has she become a religious nut?” On the contrary, this perspective is completely without the taint of religion. Religions, like politics, are systemic control programs, and we don’t recommend them at all. In fact, they contribute to the delusions that help to create almost 100% of human suffering.  What we are speaking of here is the idea of cooperation with Source and Spirit. A purely ‘go it alone’ attitude is foolish and unwise. What we mean by that is that you ignore the power of Source within in your effort to become like God.  The idea of you’re the only one capable of creating your reality is a form of egocentric posturing that leaves no room for honouring that which created You!  The Law of Attraction has it’s mirror in the Law of Repulsion, and the Law of Unintended Consequences.  How do you know what you attempt to visualize or manipulate into being is in harmony with Life?  If you cannot set aside your spiritual significance and pride long enough to ask for help in understanding what the best vision and action is, how can it ever come to pass that some real taste of peace and Heaven is realized?  You are not alone, ever.

You are within the power of God, not standing outside of it like a free agent.  Who created you? Who invented you?  Who makes your heart beat, your blood pump, or neurons fire and your lungs breathe?  Is the conscious ‘you’ doing all that, while reading these words?  In Him and Her do you live and move and have your Being.  Your free will is the gift that enables self-expression and self-discovery.  To use it to surrender to the Higher Will in you is not a defeat, but a victory that resonates throughout humanity.  It declares that you have chosen to become the embodiment of the Universal Heart of Spirit, an Agent of Love.  There is no greater power than this.  Love is the Father of Light, and the Mother of Sound.  This is the Intelligence, expressed through these prime elements that created everything that came into existence…including You.  Life begets Life, Love begets Love.  As a footnote, another aspect of Light to be considered is geometry.  We do not call it ‘sacred’ as to do so would imply it to be special, apart from the Source that creates and utilizes it as form through which all that was made, was made.  Light, Sound and Geometry are inherent to Life Itself…indeed are the very Nature of God. You might say that it all comes naturally, just as breathing comes naturally to you.  You didn’t learn how to breathe, but you would do well to learn how to breathe consciously!

Your body is proof of the spiritual made visible. It’s primary medium is water, and it responds to light and sound.  Man does not live by bread alone – but by the electro-magnetic emanations of Divine Life and Intelligence.  The body is the temple of the Self.  If you would seek to find your home on Earth, and amongst the stars above, then you would do well to tend to that which is most important – full acceptance and love of yourself.  And how do you do that?  What is in the center of your earthly home but your heart?  This is the Inner Sanctum, the Holy of Holies.  Metaphysically the focus has been on the subtle bodies, the endocrine gland system and specifically the pineal gland. Resurrecting and restoring the original functioning of the higher centres of the human hologram are important, to be sure.  But without the heart, there is nothing.  The glands die, the brain dies, and worse, if the spiritual heart has been allowed to atrophy, then the soul suffers needlessly.

The fruits of the heart are love, compassion, empathy, gratitude and courage. These are the things that are the cornerstones of Unity.  Oneness, or unity consciousness,  is not a goal…it’s a fact. When one listens to the wisdom in the heart, and chooses it as the place to live life from, then one is at the center of unity…consciously.  When you speak to Life and say, ‘lead my life, unfold it for the highest good and show me where I hide my shadow’, then you will be moving toward living in a state of Grace. A sense of grace is one of the highest heart experiences available to you.  It is only available when you set aside all agendas, strategies and philosophies.

The human heart, the heart that the fear-based ego has, can be fickle, cruel and dissociative.  It is an unruly child, forever blaming and attempting to subvert the real Heart of You, the Heart of Spirit. Once you acknowledge your shadow side, and love the darkness, your ability to love and accept that which you deem to be most unlovable is transformed.  “Blessed are the pure of heart, for they shall see God.”  This phrase, attributed to Yeshua (Jesus) in the Sermon on the Mount, expresses a spiritual truth.  When you are one in your heart, and no longer arguing with the light and dark in you, then purity results.  Then, when you look in a mirror, the real You, the Divine You, will be looking back at you with utter Love.  When you look at another, they will also see that Love that knows no bounds and it will awaken their own divided heart towards self-healing.

In recent scientific studies your researchers have discovered many amazing things about the electro-magnetic qualities of the human heart.  Your heart’s electro-magnetic pulse is 5000 times stronger than the wavelengths that your brain emits.  The field effect from the heart can be measured many feet away from your body, whereas electrodes must be attached to the head in order to ‘read’ the electro-magnetic messages your brain is generating.  The heart is broadcasting ‘coherence’ when in a state of peacefulness. It can also broadcast reflected mental states, like frustration, anger, and so forth, and these states set up non-coherent patterns that can, over time and with repetition, create a destructive pattern that can interfere with the heart’s physical functioning.  Measurements have demonstrated that two human beings can ‘talk’ to each other through their heart’s fields, even standing almost five feet away from each other!  That’s only what can be measured by your current instrumentation. In actuality, the field can be much, much larger. This depends on the spiritual and psychological makeup of the individual(s) involved.  Nonetheless, the heart is the real organ of telepathy and higher intuitive attributes, not the brain. We will state that the Mind of God resides in the Heart Center, and radiates outward to all other faculties holographically.  It is not a model that looks much different from your computer technology, with the CPU or Central Processing Unit at the heart of the system, and the sub-processors representing the rest of the mind/body functions.  The software is Divine Intelligence and Love.  That software is always up to date, self-evolving, and infinite in scope.

To care for yourself is not selfish. To love who you are in a way that celebrates the benevolence of Creation that created you is not narcissistic.  When you cultivate your own awareness, and become fully individuated as the fractal of Consciousness you were intended to be, you come to realize that there is no ‘other’.  When you realize that, then you can no longer give yourself away inappropriately…the cycle of self-abuse and self-betrayal is stopped.  Claiming your sovereignty and avoiding the trap of giving your power away to outside authorities is part of the self-care of your soul and Spirit. When you’re attentive to that, you then begin to see all people and situations equally, and your judgments and fears wither in the Light of Consciousness.  You see that there is no separation, and no Oneness to strive for because you are in integrity.  Whenever you get caught up in ‘other’ consciousness, that is to say, a belief in the illusion that there are apparently others ‘out there’, then you have left yourself open for the horizontal betrayal, and the sense of separation is acute.  When people feel this separation acutely, the frustration can manifest violently, insanely, and the search for acceptance which is projected outward manifests as anger, attack and murder.  This split cannot be healed by force, cannot be assuaged by psychotherapy.  Only love can heal this pain, and only through the total acceptance and forgiveness of yourself do you end the war inside, and paradoxically, on the outside.

We recommend a different focus for the opportunity that is offered on December 21st, 2012. We suggest that this opportunity is presented to assist you in becoming ever more present within your bodies and circumstances. Endeavouring to live Heaven on Earth will accelerate the Planet and all Life upward on the spiral of Consciousness.  How does one live this way? By not seeing any part of your present experience is being outside of the realm of Love, or Spirit. Each soul is being offered a way to release all attachments and old hurts from the past through conscious intention and Grace. If you wish to realize Heaven on Earth, then it must be lived from the inside out first. It is suggested to set aside all magical thinking. Yes, the perspectives of quantum physics, prophecy, the Mayan Calendar, and metaphysical and astrological synchronicities all have their place in order to understand the process. However, none of these perspectives will bring you joy, peace, or a sense of completeness.

In order to realize the fullness of this time, this gift of the end of time as you have known it, sit and contemplate your journey to this point in your life experience. After all,  every one of your other incarnational histories and stories are here in this moment as well.  By being fully present, all of your multidimensionality will also be present at the moment of the Change.  Call into your Heart of Hearts all aspects, all memories, all that you would judge good or bad, and just bless it and look with total compassion and love at yourself and the extraordinary journey you’ve been on for eons.  To transcend into a fuller state of Being means to remember your journey, but no longer live in it. You step out of the stream of Time, and stand in the Light of Truth.  You are vast beyond imagining, and you are also the representative of God and Goddess in human form.  Your form is You, as much as your Soul is…treat it accordingly.

So now the big moment is almost here.  In point of fact, from our perspective you are just about to crest the first hill of a cosmic roller-coaster.  The other side of the first hill is where the thrills lie, and you will have forgotten the fear and tension that was with you as the cars climbed the first grade.  Be present with that still point at the very top of the hill, when everything becomes motionless and silent, and your breathing pauses in anticipation. In that moment you are the purity of Being that you’ve always been. In that moment you can feel the power of your Heart. In that moment you fully take up residence in your Holy of Holies where Love is with you always. The Light is with you all-ways.

In that moment, which can be any moment, you are at Home.

Blessings on your journey…

Promethean Uprising: The 7th Ceremony, Astrological Parallels and the World Ethos

Heinrich_fueger_1817_prometheus_brings_fire_to_mankindby Isaac George

December 12th, 2012

When I heard from the folks at The Template headquarters in London about the newest Ceremony, number 7, and that it may be called Kundalini, I was quite excited. On top of that, since Juliet and Jiva had the 7th come through during the transit of Venus across the face of the Sun on June 5th, I knew that this was somehow tied into the first Pluto-Uranus exact square that was taking place later that month – June 24th to be precise.  I’ve always felt the Uranian factor in my personal life, since I have Uranus conjoined my natal Sun, but the information that the 7th Ceremony was themed around Kundalini was also personally significant. My own kundalini awakening was triggered by a transit of Uranus in 1994.

During a conversation with Jennifer at the London headquarters in late September, we got onto the subject of the 7th Ceremony, and eventually she suggested that I write an article about kundalini and the Uranian effect in these times. The suggestion was almost forgotten until this past weekend, and spurred on by the upcoming synchronicities of 12-12-12 and the Winter Solstice, here are the fruits of the labour.

In my beginnings as a practicing astrologer, the one thing that always made the profoundest of impressions on me was the effect and influence of transiting planets. Early on I was shown how the ‘transits’ exerted power within personal charts and collective movements. When a planet is transiting, it is describing the current celestial movements on our Solar system compared to the stationary snapshot of an individual’s birth chart. This can also be applied to the birth chart of a nation or a civilization. The astrologer Robert Hand described transits as the outer manifestation of conditions within the psyche of the individual. This was a radical stance, even for an astrologer, for it implied that the experience of a transit was also complicit in creating the conditions whereby the planet or planets in question were doing exactly what was need in the moment to effect a conscious response to something that was previously unconscious.

I was shown during a reading I had for relocation astrology how transits could describe my past journey up to the present moment. The astrologer asked me for a chronological diary of major life events from birth till the present, and was to include childhood memories, both good and bad, such as accidents, major happy events, first time falling in love, death of siblings, or one or both parents, near-death experiences, spiritual awakenings, moving, etc.  Consequently this astrologer showed me the particular transits involved in evoking the outer experiences, and it was stunning to see the accuracy and power of this for myself.

In May of 2001, while having lunch with one of my astrology teachers, the subject of the upcoming opposition of Saturn and Pluto came up. The first point of exact opposition would be in mid-August. My teacher stated unequivocally (and I have it recorded on tape) that President George W. Bush would either start a war(s) or would be forced into starting one or more conflicts. Saturn in Gemini represented ‘us’, or Western civilization – the powers that apparently were controlling the world, while Pluto in Sagittarius represented fanatical and fundamental beliefs, like Islamic or Christian fundamentalism.  When Sept.11th happened, we also saw the glyph for Gemini take on the ominous symbol of the Twin Towers themselves.  It also represented the intransigence of Bush’s challenge…either your with us or against us.

9/11 happened within three and half weeks of the first exact opposition. The tug of war had commenced.

In 2007 I became aware of the significance of two powerful outer planet transits that would affect me personally.  I also had a growing awareness that the rest of the astrological grapevine was also taking notice – and sounding warnings. Many times in the past the middle of the road astrologers have gotten it wrong, and so many were cautious in offering up any serious concerns.  When Neptune entered Aquarius in the previous decade, the prognosis was that there would be a fantastic uprising of egalitarian consciousness that would sweep in a new order that aligned with New Age principles. What we got instead was more spin in the media and more manipulation of the New Age and New Spirituality by clandestine intelligence agencies. Co-opting the opposition through psychological displacement was evident everywhere. The media led drive towards ever more consumerist philosophy as spiritual promise also gained strength. The experts within astrology were blindsided by Neptune’s foggy notions of Nirvana.

The two major characters involved in the pre and post 2012 epoch are Uranus and Pluto. Pluto left Sagittarius and entered Capricorn in November 2008. It had previously dipped into Capricorn in mid-2007, so the stage had already been set for the housing and credit bubbles to pop before it went into Capricorn for good…and it will stay there until 2024. Pluto is about power and transformation and Capricorn rules structures, especially existing structures of politics, economics and finance. Combined, these two archetypes gave birth to retrenchment of the power elite behind the gift of austerity for the rest of us. “How can we get along on fewer resources” is the message of Pluto in Capricorn. However, as we have seen, it does not apply to the 1%.

Uranus would be leaving Pisces, a water sign, and enter Aries, a fire sign, on March 11th, 2011. I am when I ask many people what happened on March 11th, 2011, and no one seems to remember it!  However, when you mention Boxing Day 2004, everyone remembers the Indonesian earthquake and devastating tsunami that came afterwards.  Uranus had just reached the 3rd degree in its transit through Pisces in Dec. 2004. When any planet reaches the 3rd plus degree of the sign it is moving through, it can be said to establish the theme of the other 27 degrees. In this case, upheaval and change through sudden ingresses of water. The next seven years would be the rise of the super storms, the super hurricanes, and the massive flooding in parts of Europe, Asia and the Americas.  So, can you remember what happened on March 11th, 2011?

Japan Earthquake Mar 11 20111The 9.0 earthquake stuck off the coast of Sendai, Honshu, Japan at 2:46pm local time (5:46am UTC). Uranus was at 29 degrees and 57 minutes of Pisces. Since the earthquake was shallow (only 20miles deep) and happened so close to the coastline, residents barely had enough warning before the tsunami roared inland.  By the time Uranus entered the sign of Aries at 12:26 JST on March 12th, Fukushima Daichi Nuclear power station was beginning its inexorable slide towards the worst nuclear disaster since Chernobyl in the Soviet Union.  The fires of nuclear power needed water to cool them, and the pumps all failed in the wake of the tsunami.  Uranium is derived from the word Uranus. Plutonium is derived from the word Pluto. To further illustrate, I’ve enclosed a chart erected for the event of the earthquake (Figure 1). Note the kite-shaped aspects between Saturn, the Moon and Neptune form a Yod, known also as the Finger of God. Pluto squares the opposition between Jupiter and Saturn, and even though it was a wide square by degree, it added to the stresses. (I know that many of you who may read this article do not recognize some of the astrological glyphs…no worries please about the astro-babble!) There’s a larger image of this chart available at the blog on my website, which is here.

To date, Fukushima is still in the news, and still a threat to human and ecological health.

My view in 2007 about the coming Uranus in Aries transit was that it heralded the awakening of the collective kundalini. In esoteric astrology one of Uranus’ attributes is divine fire, represented by the archetypal myth of Prometheus. Prometheus made man stand upright and stole fire from the ‘gods’ and gave it to humankind to stay warm and to use in the building of civilization. For this act, Prometheus was punished for this by Zeus, and the tale is tied up with Pandora and Pandora’s box (curse), and later he is bound by the Olympian Vulcan.

The ‘fire’ of the gods is synomynous with kundalini priniciple, the divine fire that liberates human beings and reunites them with the Universal Source beyond the petty jealousies and machinations of the lower ‘gods’.  Kundalini is part of the Soul Covenant, and resides in dormant at the root chakra until it is stimulated by something dramatic. Kundalini awakenings are a form of shamanic death and rebirth, and usually begin from seemingly mundane or surprising stimuli.  Long labour and childbirth, a car accident, loss of a loved one, or an actual physical injury to the lower spine can all trigger a spontaneous kundalini event. So can an extremely powerful sexual encounter, one which opens the heart and energy field to love and higher realms. Some psychotropic substances, like ayahuasca, can also initiate the kundalini force to begin rising up the spine.

So now we come to the dynamics of these times…Uranus in Aries.

To me, this is the energy behind so much of the upheaval and unrest right now. Just before the ingress of Uranus into Aries, we saw the first sparks of the Arab Spring. Then, in late spring and early summer, the Occupy Wall Street movement erupted. Since both movements are socio-political in makeup, I didn’t expect the first expressions to be anything more than a testing of the waters. The student riots over tuition fees in London during the summer of 2011, and the police rioting in New York against the Occupy Wall Streeters, perfectly exemplified the stance of Pluto in Capricorn. The power of the State versus the power of the individual. Now that Uranus is coming out of a long, five-month retrograde cycle, I expect that the embers will be fanned into flames in the first quarter of 2013.

With the advent of Ceremony 7, there is a practical template to assist in the realization of collective Kundalini awakening. The divine fire that burns away the enchantments and chains of the past, and restores our dynamic tantric,, creative potency to full expression. The Uranian influences are just getting underway, and Uranus itself will end its introspective period tomorrow, within minutes of the New Moon, and will play the perfect foil to the lunar interference. The actual chart for Dec. 21st, 2012 shows Uranus at 4 degrees of Aries, in the 1st house of the calculated chart for GMT (UTC) London. What a perfect placement on the Grand Meridian, as the First House of the Zodiac is by default ruled by Aries/Mars.

Uranus humbles the wise celestial mechanic, and I cannot, nor will not, predict the various events that may arise due to Prometheus breaking the chains of the mortal paradigm.  I do know that things will appear and disappear suddenly, surprisingly, and with fire and lightning. It is best to seek to ground oneself fully with the Earth/Gaia complex, so that the lightning of transformation can be embodied without short-circuiting.  I can only anticipate possible trends with this powerful Titan of archetypes, but there is no certainty in the manifesting of the effects.  Relying on the wisdom of uncertainty may be the best strategy for the waters we are now entering.

Peace, and blessings on your journey,
