Dear Gaia, A friend of mine heard you describe 2012 as a year of “reversals”. Could you go into more details about this? Does it apply to all of us? V. K. Budapest, Hungary
Begin by acknowledging that 2012 is not about getting it right or fixing what’s wrong. It is not about going somewhere or making something happen. Deadlines and finish lines are arbitrary. Like endings and beginnings, they are invisible bookmarks in time that connect and align truths as easily as stars. Recognize the great distance that you have already traveled in this life and know that it has enhanced you from within and without. The most common description of a reversal includes an unfortunate experience or setback. My deliberate choice of words has an alternate meaning, one that is more liberal and creative. Reversals are opportunities to revisit thoughts, decisions, opinions, and more.
A reversal is an opportunity to turn around in time to catch yourself in movement or midflight. Have you ever wished to take back your words before they reached their destination? To retrace your steps in such a way that you could find a lost object? To remake a decision without consequence? These are reversals — changes in direction, states of consciousness and conditions of being. A reversal sets aside a previous or lower decision, and the energies of 2012 encourage you to do this.
A word of caution bears placement here: A change of mind or heart is not the same as a reversal, nor is a concession or surrender. If you wish to reverse a thought or an idea do so because the new or next idea is more creative or fulfilling, not because a wrong must be made right or a debt must be repaid. True reversals lead to places of origination, open crossroads that lead to new choices, experiences and discoveries.
The most important words for you to remember here are choice, described here as the ability to act upon a preference. And change, the necessity to respond to a request.
Dear Pepper, I always look forward to your messages and updates and was disappointed not to find mention of the recent earthquakes on your website or Facebook page. Can you please ask Gaia to speak about this subject?
Kay G., NSW, Australia
Sharing Gaia’s words through channeling continues to be an important part of everything I feel and do. The beauty, variety and richness of life on earth is precious to me and so are the planet’s resources, of which we are one.
As our collective consciousness continues to expand so does our relationship with channeling and the way in which we receive wisdom. Over the last several years I have shared the many messages that Gaia has transmitted to me on the subject of earth changes and many of these are still current. Once a year, I channel an expanded view of the year ahead, including an in-depth exploration of earthquake activity. Our hunger for information about these kinds of events is understandable, but no matter how much we feed it, we will always want more.
We are near the midpoint of a milestone year within a lifetime that is perhaps more significant than others. Perhaps due to this, my natural interest has led me to focus upon practical, hands-on, everyday inspiration, the kind that helps to uplift us and carry us through this year of change. We are entering a time of spiritual maturity, and while looking to our teachers for explanations and guidance is as important and necessary as ever, it feels as if is time to forge ahead with the knowledge they have instilled in us over these many years.
Dear Pepper, I am a paraplegic, a veteran of two wars. My wife, a better and more spiritual person than I am, believes that certain planetary alignments due to occur later this year will heal every illness and challenge, including physical ones like mine. I trust my wife in all matters and someone else (in your line of work) whom she follows told her that this is so. I would like to believe this is true, but cannot. What do you believe?
Tim M. Detroit, MI
Faith, hope, and a strong belief in the marvels and magnificence of life on earth have always been my foundation and I have drawn support from them during times of great personal challenge. As a child and into adulthood, I have had visions of a future time that is similar to this one, but more “generous” in what we are able to be, do and know about life, including how to heal ourselves. Some of my visions included spontaneous healings, but to be fair, I also saw new viruses and contaminants that I did not recognize – both of these occurring during the same approximate time. Several of my visions have already come to pass, but others have not and are not likely to.
I trust that our individual and collective beliefs affect us for better and worse because we are creatively responsible for the world we live in. I believe there are great forces at work, some that we already know about and can study and others that we can only imagine. I think these great forces bring physical challenge and spiritual wisdom in equal measure, and that both are important to the soul. I do not know the nature of your challenge, but believe that you have drawn it to you for reasons that may be more dimensional than we can know from our limited perspective.
I do not believe you will be healed as a direct result of a planetary alignment, even a powerful one. I do believe that healing takes many forms and often walks beside us in ways that are invisible yet effective. I cannot speak to what your wife was told or why and can only hope that the message she received was clear and well intentioned. I have received other letters such as yours, some describing terminal illnesses. I do believe in miraculous and spontaneous healings and try to walk a path that is rooted in the field of possibilities. Even so, my feet are rooted here on earth and my views tend to be more grounded than not.
Please continue to explore avenues of expression that lead to personal growth and freedom from fear, a most dangerous disease. Develop a philosophy of life that is inclusive of different ideas, even ones that are remote and far-fetched. Beginning next year, new advances and discoveries will emerge from where they have been hiding in plain sight.
Live long and well!
