Galactic Alignment 2012?
Chris Bourne, Openhand Contributor
So we’re rapidly approaching the much heralded and prophecised Galactic Alignment, where the earth aligns with the sun through the galactic equator and according to some interpretations of the Mayan’s “Popol Vu”, it will also coordinate with the completion of what’s known as the “Precession of the Equinoxes”, which is caused by the ‘wobble’ of the Earth’s polar axis subscribing a 26,000 year cycle through the 12 constellations of the Zodiac. As I understand it, the Mayans configured their “Long Count” calendar around the prediction to complete on 21st December 2012. Is this true and what might we expect to happen as a result?…
I should quickly add, that many disagree with the timing of this event. Astronomers point to the calculations of Jean Meeus (Mathematical Astronomy Morsels, 1997) who concluded that it actually takes 36 years for the sun to pass through the alignment centred around 1998. By this calculation, there would be a window from 1980-2016 where alignment has already been happening every winter solstice. If he’s correct, and personally I feel a rightness with it, then we’re unlikely to witness anything extraordinary other than trends that have already been happening across the planet (which I’ll come onto in a moment).
Of course there’s quite a spiritual body invested in the Mayan predictions around 2012. To me, the exact timing matters not a jot, because lasting shifts of consciousness happen not according to some particular timing. That said, if we’re open to them, cosmic alignments like these, can temporarily at least uplift consciousness (which we must then integrate over time if they are to remain). And right now, like others, I do feel some pretty major cosmic shifts going on.
The Mayans accurately described a supermassive black hole at the centre of our Galaxy way before modern science discovered it. Passage along this ‘dark road’ or “Xibalba be” as the Mayans more romantically knew it, occurs with the retrograde movement of the Earths polar axis towards the ‘dark rift’ at the Galactic Centre. The Mayan culture apparently considered this as a journey into the underworld, a time of expanded consciousness. Certainly in my observations in facilitating evolving people, there definitely seems to be an acceleration into the darkened inner veils that limit – offering enormous opportunity for people to confront their fears and expand through them.
At this current time, I especially feel the underlying movements of energy as heavy denseness on the global plane of the intellect. Although I don’t feel heavy in myself, I can feel a heaviness infusing my field, an increased density, but one does have to be expanded into multiple dimensions in order to feel it.
Many have said that such Galactic Alignment – coinciding with the Precession – has in the past tended to cause dramatic earth changes like pole shifts, solar storms, volcanic activity and even earth crust displacement. For me, I feel the transition is more protracted, aligned with the 36 year window. We are for example already witnessing a gradual pole shift, reduction of the earth’s magnetic field, increasing volcanic activity and earthquakes plus freak weather all at a time when solar storm activity is moving towards a zenith of its natural cycle. So there is definitely the increasing possibility of disruptive events on a global scale, although not necessarily centred around any key date. It is more that we’re traveling into an increasing period of uncertainty and therefore escalating probability of ‘turbulence’.
What we must also take into consideration, are how mass spiritual meditation and ceremony could affect life in various locations in a positive way. And on the other side of the coin, we’re already witnessing escalating popular unrest in hot spots around the world, probably due to the increased catalytic agitation of consciousness. To make matters even more challenging to predict, we cannot rule out ‘false-flag’ scares by the ‘powers-that-be’. These times are indeed a challenge – and therefore an opportunity – of increased personal awareness and responsibility. On the road to Xibalba, there will be many shadows and we must allow the direction of a loving heart to take precedence.
So this ongoing transition is without doubt a great opportunity. Even if the various alignments do not happen as and when predicted, it is clear to many that the Earth indeed is undergoing a major transition. The signs, synchronicities and feelings strongly suggest to me at least, that her centre of consciousness is centering in the Fifth Density. I strongly believe this in itself is the major shift causing the current accelerated awakenings, fragmenting of the old fear based consciousness and a reharmonisation of vibration. It certainly feels that way to me.
Free Will and Self Determination
As this planetary shift currently takes place, I feel the soul of Gaia beginning to squeeze through the plane of the intellect. In my knowing a grid of dense energy, has over the millennia, been established within the human mass psyche by a 4th Dimensional Opposing Consciousness. This “Matrix” is interwoven through the very fabric of society. I’ve frequently spoken of it being unwound and fragmented. To me, this feels like a crucial time in that unwinding. I sense Gaia – and a variety of cosmic energies – gathering at this crucial juncture to break apart various elements of this vibrational matrix, repatriating the Opposing Consciousness and liberating humanity on the mental plane. Wouldn’t it be wonderful were that to happen!
And what about predicted mass awakenings? Well certainly, if such events are marked by a concentration of human focus, if people are caused to look up from the pavement and through the neon lighted sidewalks to the starlit heavens above, that can only be a good thing. Humanity needs as many mirroring opportunities as possible these days. But let’s be clear, no matter what the shift of consciousness that takes place, we still have to process our own inner darkness and clear it in order for the expansion to integrate and remain a part of an expanded awareness.
No matter what goes on, we are blessed with free will. Our Ascension is a constant conscious choice, which although can be spiked during key events such as these, can only be fully integrated by walking the Spiritual Path. And that in itself happens not just on one key day. It takes time, persistence and great patience.
About the Author
Chris Bourne – At the age of 40, I was involved in a life threatening car crash in which I thought I would certainly die. This precipitated total inner surrender and a rapid reconnection with the conscious life force through all things.
I found myself suddenly able to experience and contemplate through multiple dimensions of reality to see the deeper purpose of life itself. It was then I began to fully realise my true reason for being here.
During the crash, time seemed to slow right down and I was guided back through key moments of my life. I was realising that every moment in our lives has but one underlying purpose – to reveal an aspect of truth about ourselves to ourselves. I was beginning to dissolve every belief and value our society had conditioned within me.
This was my initial awakening to the magical unifying consciousness of the soul. Over the eight years that followed, I was guided through four other inner ‘Gateways’ of consciousness. I have since come to know the process as the five key expansions on our journey of Enlightenment and ultimate Ascension into multi dimensional living – our divine birthright.
My consciousness expansion however did not end there. It continued to blossom and expand. I became acutely aware of a highly evolved, benevolent presence, working through the weave of life since the dawning of time itself. I have come to know this Group of Nine intimately. It guides my life and is the basis of Openhand itself.
