By Shanta Gabriel
Hello from Mt. Shasta,
We have all taken a turn in the tides since 12/21/12, the Winter Solstice that impacted the world so greatly. It has been fascinating to watch the changes as the world unfolds for 2013.
The most obvious change was my move to Mt. Shasta of course, which has been highlighted by what I am calling my “Knock your Sox off Moments of Exalted Beauty.” Clearly my senses have been heightened by the shift in consciousness we have all made since 12/21, and I am grateful to have moved to the smaller town of Mt. Shasta which has a very high vibration. This has allowed my molecules to rearrange themselves in the new 2013 frequencies.
Two days after I moved in there was a winter storm bringing 4 feet of snow, followed by weeks of sunny dry weather. Mt. Shasta came out from behind the clouds in all her glory, impressed upon the deep blue sky in miraculous relief, crowned in peaks of white, white snow that sparkled and glowed in the clear sunlight. I found I could walk into town to get a video or visit the local market when driving was too icy. My treks out onto the snow-covered fields have felt exalted, and happiness has been bubbling from my heart from the experience of this immense beauty.
At the same time there has been an obvious deepening in my awareness of the sacred grounds I walk upon, and the sanctity of the waters that pour in great abundance from the Earth around Mt. Shasta. One day while visiting the headwaters of the Sacramento River to fill my daily drinking water bottles, my consciousness was transformed by the presence of 4 Native men. One man had a drum and was chanting to the waters and the earth, then offering tobacco before loading his jugs with pure water. This impressed me so much that I have made my prayers before I fill my water bottles more exuberant and made sure I consciously offer my gratitude to the Earth Mother for the abundant flow of her pure waters. I also pray for all the waters of the earth to be purified at the same time. Observing the Native man’s prayers that day also affected me more acutely because on that day I was feeling tense from some work I was doing, and was having difficulty grounding the excess energy. While he chanted I sat in the snow and just received the energy of his prayers and gratitude to the Divine. The transformation I experienced in my consciousness that day has stayed with me for weeks, and allowed me to bring higher frequencies into my work just as I have intended. The Earth seems to be calling us to offer her our gratitude and blessings in this new time. I know that this makes a difference by lifting the vibrational frequencies within and around us.
Spiritualizing my Life
Since 12/21/12, it has become abundantly clear that I am learning how to spiritualize my daily life so there is no separation. This has been a goal of mine for many years, and though it has been mostly successful, clearly 2013 has brought the manifestation of this intention to a new level of opportunity. Intuition is more available so life has become more seamless in many ways, and the heartfelt connection I have experienced to myself and my work has been magical. I have wanted my work to be my spiritual practice, and my home to reflect the spiritual qualities that most inspire me. Now in my new Temple Home in Mt. Shasta, it is clearly unfolding in just that way as I am bringing my spiritual tools into my daily life. We are being gifted with Heart Centered Action this year, according to Archangel Gabriel, and each of us is learning what that means to us.
Because I moved into a new space I wanted to incorporate lifetime’s of spiritual tools into creation of a home/office that was also a Temple holding the power of the Spiritual Practice I have adopted over 40 years. It has become a reflection of Matrix Technology using Light Fields to anchor the spiritual principles I believe in. Consciously choosing each thing I kept in my space became a powerful discipline as the altars slowly took over the entire apartment. I anchored Love in each of the corners with rocks and large uncut stones. I anchored the entire building I live in with powerful intentions. (Since it is in the shape of an H, I anchored Health, Harmony, Humor and Happiness into each corner). Wanting to charge up my apartment with high vibrational energy, I have been playing Sanskrit chants from the day I moved in. I anchored the sacred geometric shape of an octahedron in the center of my living space, pulling in all the corners of the apartment so it is all one dedicated space. My home/temple/work space is not only dedicated to manifestation of Unity and Oneness in all things, it is also dedicated to Beauty. I used Light Fields of Beauty, so that everywhere I look is beautiful. This uplifts me in such an amazing way that it adds to my “happiness quotient.” (I have been inspired by the stories about the government of Butan measuring the happiness of the people in that country as a measure of its success. It seems like we should all have that as a measurement for our lives.)
All of these intentions for my new home in Mt. Shasta are not really new in my life, as I have made the effort to create this sort of life for many years. What is magical about the time since 12/12/12 is that it is unfolding with Grace and Ease, and my HIgher Self is bringing me intuitive ideas on what my next heart-centered action will be. I have been able to float in a relatively, a surprisingly peaceful, spacious state of being as I am doing what needs to be done next. I am loving the way this feels so much that it sets the boundaries very clearly for what I am available to experience in my life. There is a sense of the fullness of Divine Presence within and around me that I want to have as my natural state of being, all the time. When I am not in alignment with this integral state, it is very clear. And it is also clear what I need to do to shift the state. The answer is always to raise my vibrational frequency. How I do that varies tremendously, which comes back to using the spiritual tools I have received over the years.
The fact that I have been amassing so much information, techniques, practices, and experiences in my spiritual toolkit has made it clearly obvious that I have to use it every day in order to create a life that works for me on many levels. What if I were really awake and I did not have to wait until I felt more like I was “finished” before I just live in the way I know is best for me. My life encompasses all that I enjoy and integrates all the parts of me that will need work perhaps as long as I have a body. I want to feel grounded and earthy as well as intensely pure and exalted in consciousness. In 2013 it is time to have it all. The caveat is that our intentions must be very clear to live in the realms of Divine Presence while we have our feet on the ground and connect to the core vitality of the Earth that sustains us.
Another demonstration of 2013 is the ability to experience lower frequencies of 3D awareness without being affected emotionally, as in the past. I can notice the difference between my 5D reality and 3D and seem to be able to live in both. This allows me to maintain strength in my boundaries as well as my ability to maintain Observer Mode without sinking into whatever is transpiring. Because it has been so organic,I am imagining that it has something to do with the Light Field of Safety and Grace that I have intended to live in. While I know intellectually that God keeps me safe and the Angels watch over me, my body still carries some old fear no matter how much work I have done. Living in a field of Safety has been a tremendous advantage. Adding Grace to my Light Field makes everything easier for me as well.
Early in the wee hours of the morning of 2013, I was awakened with the words, Welcome to 2013, a year so malleable that you are literally creating it as you live. It will be Equinox before this year can morph more clearly into what it will reveal. At the same time this means that your thoughts, prayers and intentions have immense power. As the energy of 2013 solidifies from its previous state of “warm jello,” I am using the power of my intentions to create a life that allows me to thrive in 2013. We are participating in the most important shift in consciousness in human history. Part of the evolutionary movement is our own conscious dedication to bringing forth all the gifts, talents, skills and tools we have into the world. Through this powerful presentation together we are communicating a new reality.
Many Blessings, Shanta
