Every year, since 2005,
I have been making predictions for the coming year (even though I
don’t like making predictions).
I write them towards the
end of the previous year, post them and usually forget about them
until I am reminded to look at them. They tend to be very accurate
although, at the time I am writing them, I am not told exactly ‘what
will happen’ but more of what has the potential to happen or what is
energetically aligned to allow certain events to unfold in
We still have free will in all things and nothing is ever ‘set in
stone’ but we also live in highly transitional times and more and
more people share a desire for peace, love, acceptance and community
and this is what has the real power to create change in the world
and allow our individual and collective realities to become ‘heaven
As we look back on 2012 we can feel a sense of relief that it is
over, as we accomplished much healing and growth and we were able to
experience the shift of the ages as we completed December 21, 2012
and moved beyond it.
The earth did not end
but things are vastly different now and will be in the future. We
are different too and can choose to face 2013 as powerful
co-creators of a new earth paradigm or feel unbalanced, ungrounded
and afraid to take the next steps, which are no longer written for
us. We have moved from karma into creation and our greatest
challenge may be in not knowing what we want to create.
We can see each new year as a challenge to the past or as a new
opportunity to create a different future.
One thing is clear,
there is no turning back now. We are in the throes of
transformation, an evolutionary process that will not be unlike the
death of the dinosaurs, what is old, outmoded, does not resonate
with truth, joy, love, peace and connection will become extinct.
We are already seeing many of the world’s structures that serve a
few to the detriment of many coming under scrutiny, we are connected
to each other, across the world, as never before. Our physical world
is becoming increasingly virtual and boundaries that once existed
through culture, geography, nationality and country are now being
New generations know
themselves as global citizens, who count among their friends people
they may never meet in person, and we can share thoughts and ideas
across the globe in seconds through media like Twitter.
While we may be feeling the pressure to transform, we are also aware
of the resistance from those who do not want to release the status
quo. And this resistance will intensify in 2013 as there are those
who will not release their fear until there are no other options for
them to choose from.
2012 was described as the year we got back our power and many of us
did, although not in the way we imagined. Sometimes we got our power
back because those we have been giving it to decided they no longer
wanted us in their lives. Other times we were the ones who had to
Now that we have our
power back, what are we going to do with it? This is what we will
explore in 2013.
The three themes for 2012 were truth, integrity and alignment and we
had so many opportunities to discover or uncover our personal truth
and the truth in the world, to know what we were aligned with and
how our integrity measured up with our energy and true intention. It
was a long and challenging year and now we get to start another yet
but on a much different level.
2013 is the year of evolution, where we get to take everything we
have learned and put it into practice in our own lives.
There will be little
desire or opportunity to heal others, we have ‘been there and done
that’ and have all of the t-shirts, in every color.
But how are we
powerful when we are not healers, when we are not expending
and extending our energy towards others’ healing?
Can we be an
example of powerful living for others and let them do their
own healing work?
This will be our lesson
as we walk through 2013 with a foot in both worlds, aligned with the
potential of the new earth and holding that space for those who have
yet to align with its energies, in powerful, life and self
fulfilling ways, living from our expansiveness and joy.
The key themes for 2013 are:
This, above all, is
the central theme for 2013. How do we evolve beliefs,
situations, experiences and thinking into their higher aspects?
We have all of the
tools we need, it’s time to put them in action. In every
situation, we will have the choice to revolve it, using energy
from the past, or evolve it, infusing it with a higher energy to
create a different possibility and outcome.
Those things we do
not evolve will have painful consequences if we try to live in
the present from the energies of the past, which hold no power
for us. This even extends to the roles we have played as
healers, teachers, and Lightworkers.
We are now Evolvers,
tasked with bringing humanity into alignment with the new earth
by ensuring that we are aligned with it in our own lives.
Multiple Self Awareness
As we move into
higher energies we are aware of ourselves as humans but are we
are of ourselves as having multiple self aspects, any one of
which we can choose at will?
The self we are
expressing is one potential, if we do not like its outcome we
can simply choose another one. This is described in the 2013
Evolution Guide in greater detail.
The concept of
power, in the material or human sense, has always been ‘power
over’ someone or something.
The ascended concept
of power is divine, which is power within. This is our internal
power source, which emanates from our Source connection and is
the expression of our God light. It does not require
confirmation or a recipient, as in someone to validate it for
It requires that we
are aligned with our power in all things, using our power to
evolve all of life experiences within our self aspects.
This is a time when
we will learn the truth and some of it will be very disturbing
and has the potential to cause a lot of fear.
On both individual
and global levels, we will learn that those who we thought were
our friends were actually our enemies and working against us and
those who we thought were our enemies were actually our friends.
There are times when
it will feel like the world is being turned upside down, inside
out, shaken and not stirred and it will all work out at the end.
One thing to remember during 2013 is to reserve judgment in all
things, be the observer and stay detached. Look for the
blessings in every situation, they will be there in even the
most dire of situations.
Remember, this is
the year of evolution and sometimes energy has to be revolved
before it can be evolved.
Here are my general
observations about what 2013 will hold for us, the humanity and the
A Global Consciousness
This is one aspect
of 2013 which I find troubling because what began as the global
economic crisis in 2008 has not yet been resolved and the
existing system which many count on for their financial and
physical sustenance is no longer sustainable.
As we go through
2013 we will find more evidence of corruption, self serving,
greed, and the level to which all of our corporate, banking and
government systems have been working to limit access to many for
the benefit of a few. A shift in consciousness begins with an
awareness of the existing paradigm and this has long been hidden
Over the course of
the year, and particularly in the May to July period, a torrent
of secrets will be revealed, some by divine intervention, others
from people who can no longer hold the secrets they have been
consciousness shift may begin with anger and fear but its
purpose is to teach humanity to be more self aware, to live
through intention and to use their own creative power to ensure
their own joy, happiness, success and abundance.
chaotic and devastating earth changes that have long been
predicted still have some potential of happening; however, we
have averted many of them.
Some of the earth
changes I see for 2013 are natural, others are due to man-made
activities. There are several active volcanoes around the
Philippines, in part of southeast Asia, in Yellowstone that will
cause global concern and a long dormant volcano in Australia
that will appear unexpectedly in late August or September.
Of greater concern are the sinkholes that were mentioned in 2012
and will appear in greater numbers in 2013. Many of these are
caused by drilling,
fracking and other known and hidden
activities that disrupt the earth’s substrata.
I see these
happening in the Middle East, especially Saudi Arabia, Qatar,
Iraq and in the United States, around the Gulf Coast, the areas
around Ohio, Pennsylvania and Kentucky, Nevada and Illinois
(currently, fracking is supposedly not being done in Illinois
but I believe that it is poised to start in 2013 and once it
does the appearance of sinkholes will be immediate, to the
extent that the damage fracking creates can no longer be
Some of these will
be very large and open quickly. There will be significant
properly losses and some loss of life.
Vortexes and Energy
concentrations of energy on the earth and energy portals are
openings in the earth’s electromagnetic grid that allow energy
to flow into the earth from the Universe.
We spent much of
2012 balancing existing portals energy and holding space for new
portals over the Middle East, Africa and parts of Eastern Europe
into Russia are still open but much less powerful. As we hold
energy for the new earth these portals close, but not without a
great deal of resistance, as we have seen in the Middle East
this past year.
Many of us have been living in areas where we have been holding
energy for new vortexes and creating portals for new earth
energy. In these areas we have become extremely isolated and
unhappy as our energy shifts beyond their capacity to meet our
energetic needs - they do not hold the energy we need to sustain
our own soul’s growth.
While the work we
have been doing has been important and necessary, it is time for
us to let go and move on into areas that do support us. That
potential has been there, the areas we are moving into have also
been preparing for our arrival and that process will be
completed early in 2013.
If you have been
wanting to move to a new location, begin preparing in January
and set your intention for the life experiences you want in the
new area. You will get confirmation of the timing and place,
starting in March and completing by September.
Solar Flares, CMEs
2012 saw some of the
powerful solar activity in human history and this will
intensify in 2013.
The Sun supports the
Earth’s growth, as well as ours, and the increased radiation
from solar flares supports the new portals as well as our faster
vibrational frequencies. The Sun will continue to send higher
vibrations to the Earth which will disrupt weather and
communications and also help empower the
changes in our DNA
structure that are being created in the post Dec. 21 world.
A new era of
Earth/Sun partnership is being created, with the Earth aligning
more fully with the Sun’s power, which has been able to receive
in very small doses as its vibration simply would not handle
The new solar flare
activity will be called history making but it will be more
aligned with our higher frequencies and we will not feel them as
intensely as we have in the past, i.e. the physical symptoms
will not be as difficult for those who have already moved into a
higher vibrational frequency.
From Mindfulness to
We have been driven
by the mind throughout our third dimensional experience and as
we move into higher dimensions of being, the soul’s desires
become more important and obvious.
Now we can move
beyond knowing the soul’s desire is for love, joy, peace,
abundance without knowing how to realize them.
Our ‘full mind’
which is full of its own thoughts, memories, beliefs and
experiences, is often not aligned with our highest path. The
path of the mind is karmic, the path of the soul is aligned with
creation. While our karmic path is one avenue of creation, it is
a single path, with only one outcome and one potential.
Being soulful, or within the realm of the soul’s desire for our
life path, we step into creation and have many avenues of
potential for our lives. We don’t have to choose just one, we
can experiment with many, finding the one that best aligns with
the joy we wish to live in and through.
soulfulness means that we lead with the soul and let the mind
learn to create instead of always knowing what is going to
During the course of
every year there are power periods where the earth’s energetic
balance shifts, new energetic alignments occur, new vortexes open or
old ones close.
These often clash with
our own energetic vibrations and they can make us very uncomfortable
and even physically ill. We call these ascension symptoms and they
are part of our ascension journey, for we need to bring new energy
to the earth as part of our mission of creating ‘heaven on earth’.
With these power periods
we may see earth changes, strong storms, floods, earthquakes or
unusual weather. In our own lives we can experiences sudden endings,
disruptions, changes of heart or mind or even physical illness.
In 2013 there will be 6 power periods:
January 3 to 22
I will call this a
mini power period because it is a time of assessment,
recalibration and setting intentions.
If you are unsure of
where the next step on the path is for you, set an intention for
the most joyful and abundant path and let the answer come to
you. This is a month for preparation, not action.
Strong solar storms
will make the news, as will shifts in weather patterns that
bring unusually warm weather to areas that are usually cold and
cold weather to warmer areas.
With this month the
transformative power of 2013 begins.
We will feel the
energy moving in a very real way, and at times it may feel like
things are spinning out of control. They are, in a sense, the
old Earth paradigms are being released so new ones can take
their place. Those who don’t understand what is going on will
appear to be very needy and insecure, and the people and
situations this comes from may be surprising.
We have the first of
2013′s three Mercury retrograde cycles this month too.
March to June
The Equinox on March
20 closes the door on the old Earth paradigm.
Global events that
reveal the truth about how the world has been operating make
daily news. Look for many surprises at this time, affecting many
governments and corporations. Strong late winter storms, (in the
northern hemisphere) and lots of rain in other parts of the
world creates flooding.
There will also be
two eclipses during this period and the third Uranus/Pluto
square on May 21, this one features Uranus direct and Pluto in
retrograde. Mercury goes into shadow retrograde starting June
26, ending on July 20.
July to August
This won’t feel like
much of a summer as many plans are changed and situations change
quickly. Look for disruptions
in travel, storms, weird weather, people acting very strangely
and a lot of fear.
Many may change residence, either moving to a
new home in their area or deciding to take a chance and make a
move that they have considered for years, including cross
country and moving to a new country or continent.
Mercury is in
retrograde or shadow the whole month of July too so double check
travel plans and all communications.
This may be the
first month since January that we feel that we can pause and
catch our breath.
There will be a
desire to spend some time alone, get settled and align with some
of the changes that have been brewing since February. Those who
have moved this year will feel a sense of relief as they begin
to connect with their new soul families and make many new
The month starts
with Mercury retrograde, the fourth Uranus/Pluto square and an
eclipse so it will be interesting.
Those who are firmly
grounded in the changes they have been making all year (and even
all of the work they have done for the past decade) will not
feel the pressure of this month. In fact, it will feel more like
confirmation of the work they have done.
There will be a
strong feeling of the world’s people united in creating a more
sustainable, loving, supportive world. ‘Nowhere to run, nowhere
to hide’ comes to mind as I think of November, those who have
nothing to hide have nothing to fear.
Don’t let the chaos
distract you, remember - change is inevitable, chaos is
Hold onto your hats, the
fun is just beginning…
This is going to be a tough year, in terms of changes to be made,
learning to live through intention, creating space in our lives for
the transformation that will be occurring and letting go of beliefs,
people, situations that do not serve our highest path or, more
importantly, serve our intention for joyful, joy-filled living.
We will create what we
say we have been wanting for years but being in ‘wanting’ mode and
then getting what we want are two different things.
As we learn to live
through creation (instead of karma), we may find a whole new way of
life opens up for us, maybe without many of the familiar faces and
places that we have known for a long time.
During this entire year,
your intention will serve as your guidepost and guiding light for
your life, so set powerful, meaningful and soul-filled intentions
for this evolutionary, transformative year.
