A Look at the Future

In a number of metaphysical circles, there is the idea that humanity's future is predestined.  According to this view, the human race and the planet are certain to ascend into higher consciousness in a predetermined way.  The process of creation, however, is not one of predetermination.  Humanity's future is not rigidly laid out. So what is happening? 

Humans are evolving and shifting at an unprecedented pace.  People in every corner of the planet are being impacted.  Other life forms, and even the Earth itself, are in the process of massive reconstruction.  A dramatic leap into higher consciousness is underway.  Outmoded societal structures are collapsing, sometimes quickly and other times over a span of years or decades.  The institutions and systems most impacted and controlled by greed and power mongering are oftentimes the places most resistant to new more enlightened approaches. The people with the power want to keep the power. 

Never before on Earth have there been so many changes so fast.  Young people born today will need to become skilled in adapting to change, not only the types of change typical in a lifetime, but countless other shifts in circumstances that their ancestors did not face.  Because it's all so new, the previous generations have created no roadmap for how to navigate these tumultuous times. 

If you are reading these words, you have chosen to participate is this great experiment of humanity-to help create a brand new beginning for the Earth.  At the core of your being, you remember the importance of this lifetime, not only for you personally but for all sentient beings on the planet.  You also recall the vital links between what happens on Earth and what then occurs throughout other interconnected universes.  You know the urgency of the situation.  You understand the stakes involved. 

Before incarnating this time, you made a decision to be one of the Divine Changemakers during Earth's pivotal years.  You "signed up" without hesitation-the brave spiritual warrior that you are-realizing the great potential and the many benefits, including to you personally on your evolutionary path. 

When you were birthed into your current embodiment, you likely did not remember any decisions about joining other comrades in a crazy dance of human reconnection.  Most likely, upon arrival you quickly forgot who you were and why you came.  Your remembrance of Self as a spiritual being, too, was most likely covered over with a thick layer of dust.  You might even have felt you came to the wrong "place," to the wrong "family," or in the wrong "time." 

What You Want Now

Now, at this juncture, you want to feel at home on your planet, and in your own skin.  You want to feel empowered to create the changes you know need to occur.  You want to feel as though your life has meaning.  You want to feel confident in your ability to connect with the truth of what is really happening in your world.

A part of your challenge is that no one prepared you for what you would face.  You were not given a map, or even a guidebook with ratings of the best and worst places.  You have to figure it out step-by-step, moment-by-moment.  Your comrades for the journey, some of which you likely have not yet met, don't have a guidebook either.  It is up to each of you to sort out the truths from the untruths, and learn to discern meanings of your reality. 

Quite often, as you have learned, things are not as they appear.  There is much going on behind the scenes.  You hear about some of it through carefully manipulated media channels.  For example, you hear about pricing decisions, made behind closed doors, which affect the global economy as well as your own pocketbook. 

Learning to Question

You are learning to question.  This is a natural ability, of course, yet it is often underdeveloped and even discouraged in modern culture.  In order to move into your Divine power in this life, you must develop your ability to question and put it into regular use in everyday situations. 
It will be helpful to begin questioning your own questions, too. 

For example, any of the following types of questions are future-oriented and will tend to keep you feeling small:

· Will I be or have (a specific thing or quality such as happiness) at some future time?
· When will I have (a quality or a specific thing such as prosperity)?
· What if I get (a disease such as cancer) or become (unable to do something)?
· What will happen if I lose (my home, my husband, my job)?
· How long will this (situation, pain, condition, problem) last?
· When will the world become (sane, safe, peaceful)?

Rather than question in this future-oriented way, consider asking questions that will empower you in the present to change your situation, or at least alter your view of what is occurring. 

To change your experience of the future, you must change your experience of the present. As you continue the journey of rediscovering your Divine nature, we surround you with our love and blessings.
