THIS IS YOUR LIFE

You may have seen the poster below on Facebook...it's actually been around for a couple years, but just recently came to my attention. It's called "The Holstee Manifesto" and it comes from a company (named Holstee, of course) which makes an assortment of ecologically-sound personal products, most of which feature a positive message.

Originally written by the company's three founders as a guiding vision, the Manifesto has quite understandably taken on a life of its own. I love the message, and I especially appreciate the notion that the clarity and scope of their defining mission could in and of itself make the company more visible and successful. Well done, Holstee.

MY 2012 PREDICTIONS, PART 4: DISCLOSURE

Here are my 2012 predictions for Disclosure - the official US government acknowledgement of the existence and reality of UFO's and ET's:

1. UFO sightings worldwide will increase dramatically in 2012, with more sightings occurring closer to the ground and to observers, in broad daylight, and over more densely-populated areas, including major cities. As the sightings become commonplace, many more government and military officials, and other insiders will speak out about their knowledge of UFOs and ET's.

2. High-quality photos and videos of UFO sightings will multiply in 2012, and will include sightings captured and broadcast by live TV cameras. Pictures and videos of UFO sightings will go viral around the world within moments via YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter, and other social media sites, leading to new UFO websites dedicated to up-to-the-minute information on sightings.

3. Inexplicable UFO sightings and Close Encounter-type events will continue to accelerate and intensify, until they culminate in a large-scale defining moment - a massive sighting witnessed by thousands of people. These events will eventually force the US and other world governments to try to address the growing phenomenon and to attempt to control the public response to the escalating situation by finally acknowledging the reality of UFO's and ET's.

4. I believe that final turning point will come sometime in 2012, most likely in the Fall or Winter. At that time, I expect President Obama, in conjunction with other prominent world leaders, to address the nation and perhaps the world on live TV. Other world leaders may appear together with Obama or make similar announcements in their own countries.

I asked my guides if they could show me what the news headlines will say immediately after the "Grand Reveal" has taken place, and this is what I saw (this will not be the official announcement itself, but the first media reports afterward):

WE ARE NOT ALONE

NASA: "E.T.'s are real and they are here."

OBAMA: "This is the dawn of a new era in human civilization."

5. After the initial Disclosure of the existence of UFO's and ET's, the world's attention will naturally turn toward making actual direct human Contact with our Galactic brothers and sisters. I'm still not clear if that will occur in late 2012 or early 2013, but I have no doubt that it will occur within months of the initial public Disclosure. My sense is there will be some space between Disclosure and Contact in order to allow time for humanity to assimilate the many paradigm-shattering repercussions of these momentous events.   

6. In 2012, we will learn the true hidden history of the existence of Top Secret military and aerospace programs that have for several decades back-engineered crashed/recovered alien craft. We will also learn that many of the unexplained UFO reports, photographs, and videos were/are actually craft of man-made (terrestrial) origin. This will lead to further investigations and disclosures about elite secret agendas of control and manipulation, free energy, advanced technology, space travel, and other scientific projects.

7. As Disclosure inevitably leads to Contact, which in turn leads to an ongoing relationship between humanity and ET's, we will finally learn the true hidden history of the Earth, our solar system, the purpose of the ET's past interactions with us, and the nature of the ET's involvement, if any, in our evolution as a species. Going forward from there, one can only imagine with awe and wonder what we might learn about the nature of the cosmos, other dimensions of reality, advanced levels of consciousness, and the existence of a Grand Divine Plan of Creation.          

The impact of Disclosure cannot possibly be overstated. Disclosure will be the biggest, most powerful, far-reaching event thus far in human history. It will change the world in some ways we can imagine, and in many more ways we could never imagine. Every cultural institution we know will be shaken to its core in light of these developments. None of us will ever be the same. I think that's a good thing. It's time we grew up as a species, and what better catalyst could there be for an evolutionary step forward at this point in time than to discover beyond any and all doubt that we are not alone in the Universe. I can't help but wonder if that was what the Mayans and other ancient civilizations had in mind when they spoke of this time as the "Golden Age." 

Regardless of whether these or any of my other 2012 predictions come true, I encourage everyone to embrace this magical, mythical year in the spirit of love, cooperation, reverence, and gratitude for all that unfolds. We live in very interesting times, in some ways the most challenging times...but if we stay positive, and stay together, we will make it through to the other side.

(This is Part 4 of my 2012 Predictions - here are Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3.)

MY 2012 PREDICTIONS, PART 3: THE AWAKENING

Here are my 2012 predictions for what has become known as the Awakening of humanity:

As we move into 2012, it often feels to me like we are living simultaneously in 2 distinct worlds. Those worlds appear to represent opposite extremes, and yet at their center, they blend into a thick gray fog of confusion and paralysis. As the Awakening unfolds, the confusion will gradually fade, as the sad but true nature of the illusion of our mutually-accepted reality becomes clearer, and then unacceptable. Some people continue living in the Old World, oblivious to the dark agenda that has shaped so much of our common experience. Some people live with one foot in the Old World and the other in the New World, unsure what to believe about where we have been, where we are today, and where we might be going. Some people see the signs of the changing times all around them, have wholeheartedly embraced the New World, and have dedicated themselves to moving forward no matter what.      

The Old World, with its old ways of thinking and being, is at this very moment collapsing all around us. The defining principles of that old worldview are fear, greed, separation, scarcity, and war. Despite the ongoing efforts of those who cling to the past, and those who benefitted in the past, nothing and no one can stop the agonizing death of the Old World in the years immediately ahead. Structures and systems that are opposed to life and the collective well-being simply cannot survive much longer. We have already pushed the pendulum too far, and now it must swing back toward the positive. 

Prediction: In 2012, we will see the collapse of the Old World accelerate and intensify, on several fronts. There will be more corporate, political, religious, and military scandals than at any time since the 1960's. That means more bankster fraud, more shocking human-rights abuses, more forced resignations of high-ranking corporate and governmental officials, and more secrets of high-level corruption uncovered and made known. Some of these revelations will be quite shocking and unexpected, but it is for the best and it must happen this way to jolt us out of our collective insanity. 

The New World, with its new ways of thinking and being, is at this very moment blossoming all around us. The defining principles of this new worldview are love, cooperation, wholeness, sustainability, and peace. It has taken nearly 50 years, but now the evolutionary echoes of the personal and social progress of the 1960's are reverberating around us, and reminding us that it is time to make another leap forward. In 1967, one of the most popular counter-culture mantras was "Tune In, Turn On, Drop Out." In 2012, one of the most popular counter-consumer mantras could be "Go Within (yourself), Turn Off (the TV), Opt Out (of the Rat Race)."

Prediction: In 2012, we will see the growth of the New World accelerate and intensify, on several fronts. Lifestyle practices that once seemed fringe or New Age, such as Eastern religions and philosophies, meditation, yoga, organic gardening, natural foods, alternative fuel vehicles, and caring for the environment, are becoming mainstream. The Internet is freeing generations of former office-bound workers to leave their cubicles, work from home, and spend less time in traffic and more time with their families and friends. Adults are going back to school not to obtain a degree, but to gain knowledge and skills that will enable them to start small businesses, rather than relying on obsolete corporate employers. Perhaps most importantly, the Awakened are trusting their intuition as a means of navigating through the often-muddled waters of life, rather than following the tired voices of Old World authority.  

Here are some more tell-tale signs and specific predictions of The Awakening that is changing and shaping our world right here and now in 2012:

Old World Values: be like everyone else while simultaneously trying to stand out from the crowd, conspicuous consumption of expensive new goods, living beyond means through credit, external indicators of meaning and value.

New World Values: be yourself while simultaneously merging with something bigger, inconspicuous recycling of inexpensive used goods, living within means without credit, internal indicators of meaning and value.

The success-oriented motivational speakers who prowled the lecture halls and stages of America in the Big Business 80's and 90's have gradually given way to spiritually-inclined authors, teachers, and healers such as Dr. Wayne Dyer, Marianne Williamson, Eckhart Tolle, Caroline Myss, and Deepak Chopra.

Prediction: In 2012, we can expect renewed interest and increasing exposure for films with an awakened message, such as The MatrixWhat The Bleep Do We KnowConversations With GodThe Celestine ProphecyPeaceful WarriorThe Shift, and many others. (For what it's worth, I don't consider "The Secret" to be a spiritual film in any meaningful way. Despite its New Age veneer and shiny production values, the film's message was so blatantly materialistic and shallow, and a gross misrepresentation of the true, ancient meaning of the Law of Attraction.)

Prediction: In 2012, we will witness an explosion of new social/spiritual media outlets dedicated solely to The Awakening. French-American entrepreneur extraordinaire Lilou Mace has pioneered this field and generated over 12 million YouTube views for her Juicy Living videos. As Lilou expands into publishing, TV, and other creative outlets, she will continue to inspire other co-creators to follow her lead. This is one consciousness revolution that will most certainly be televised.

Prediction: In 2012, any politically-motivated efforts to limit or in any way restrict free and open access to the Internet will meet with widespread social protest. The Web has proven to be the great democratic equalizer, and the dark side will not stop trying to curb The Awakening by limiting its worldwide accessibility and influence. Resistance to those mis-guided and malevolent efforts will not be futile. 

Prediction: In 2012, at least 4 additional states will legalize medical marijuana. Currently, 16 states plus the District Of Columbia allow medical marijuana use. The issue of marijuana legalization is not about drugs - it is fundamentally an issue of liberty, and the rights of adults to control their own bodies and seek happiness on their own terms. As the Awakening spreads, so too will the acceptance of natural, organic, non-addictive medications and other useful substances that can be grown, processed, and safely utilized by informed adults.

Prediction: In 2012, at least 3 additional states will legalize same-sex marriage. Currently, 6 states plus the District Of Columbia allow same-sex marriage. The issue of gay marriage is not about homosexuality - it is fundamentally an issue of freedom and equality. As the Awakening grows and gathers momentum, so too will the tolerance of alternative lifestyles by consenting adults.

Prediction: In 2012, legal action will be undertaken to challenge the Supreme Court's Citizens United ruling, in which the Court held that corporations and unions reserve the same rights of free-speech as those granted to individuals. The growing backlash against corporations and their undue social and political influence is one of the most fundamental and compelling aspects of the global protest movements. As the Awakening takes hold, corporate corruption in its many guises will no longer be accepted as an inevitable part of the system.

Prediction: In 2012, organized boycotts, civil disruptions, and Occupation-style movements will cease being the fringe exception and will become the norm, as mainstream citizens increasingly fed up with the profits-over-people value system of multinational corporate America start acting up. We could see a trend toward "send it back/take it back" in which citizens simply decide they no longer need a house full of cheap, sweatshop-produced consumer items they bought at some big-box retailer.

Prediction: In 2012, Made In America will once again stand for something we can all be proud of, as small, independent, community-minded businesses that produce high-quality, affordable goods and services will take root and flourish. Look for new community-based websites similar to Craigslist to fulfill the role of promoting the modern-day equivalent to the neighborhood Mom-and-Pop shop.

In closing, I believe the first 2 parts of my 2012 Predictions (Part 1: Obama's re-election and renewal; Part 2: Economic meltdown) dovetail perfectly with this Part 3: The Awakening in the sense that, taken together, they constitute a significant portion of the Critical Mass necessary to further the Awakening process. During hard times like these, real leadership is needed at all levels, and when present it can inspire millions more people to change. The changes won't always be easy, but we can make it happen if we work together.

We have reached the point in our collective human evolution when the painful truths about why our world is the way it is must be exposed. Subsequently, the solutions, or what each of us can do to change ourselves and our world must then be explored. The challenges we face lay both within and without us, and so too do the answers. By going within and discovering that eternal divine presence of light and truth, we can make an evolutionary leap into a brilliant future...and make real, dramatic progress toward creating our heaven on Earth.

Stay tuned...in Part 4 of my 2012 Predictions, I will offer a look ahead for what I believe is the missing piece to humanity becoming a Galactic civilization.

MY 2012 PREDICTIONS, PART 2: THE ECONOMY

Here are my 2012 predictions for the US economic situation:

1. Sometime in the first quarter of 2012, the first domino will fall in the coming global financial meltdown when one of the most troubled Euro-zone countries (Greece, Italy, Ireland, Portugal, or Spain are the likely candidates) defaults on their fraudulent international bankster debt, leaves the Euro-zone, and returns to their own sovereign money system. It will only take one country to get the fire started, and more will follow shortly thereafter. By the way, that trail of dominos leads straight to Germany, France, Great Britain, and...the USA.

2. Once the Euro-zone starts to implode, it's only a matter of time before the economic fallout reaches US shores. We already know the Fed sent billions in US taxpayer-funded bailout $$$ overseas to prop up its foreign bankster pals a few years ago - what happens when those same banks threaten to collapse again? The corrupt centralized banks have become obsolete and are destined to fail in the next several years...and the process won't be pretty. In 2012 the Fed will once again move to bail out its international partners in crime.

3. The big US banks - Bank of America, JP Morgan Chase, Citigroup, and Wells Fargo - are insolvent. The Euro-zone crisis will only exacerbate the problems here. Sometime in mid-to-late 2012, there will be a 2-3 day "bank holiday" in the US. During that time, all personal funds will be frozen and unavailable for withdrawal. If that scenario comes to pass, it will followed by panic, outrage, protests, riots, and widespread calls for the end of the Federal Reserve.

4. Regardless of whether the above 3 predictions occur, the effort by some in Congress to Audit the Fed is going to shift into a full-force movement to End the Fed altogether. The fiat paper money system has been exposed as a Ponzi scheme that enriches a few at the expense of everyone else. The international bankster cabal knows no shame, and their greed and avarice knows no limit - they don't even bother to try to mask their absurd corruption anymore. Look for renewed discussion about the US re-instituting the gold standard, and for 2012 political candidates everywhere to start choosing sides in the debate.    

5. Millions of people have already wised up and moved their money from the aforementioned big banks, and in the coming year millions more will join the exodus. Every time the banksters institute new policies to gouge their loyal customers, more customers wake up and take their business elsewhere. Every time the banksters give corrupt CEOs obscene, record-setting bonuses, more customers get the message and make the switch to a local banking institution. Every time the media uncovers another case of fraud by the banksters, more customers decide it makes sense to keep their money in their community.

6. US housing prices will decline by an average of at least 12% nationally, as tracked by the Case-Shiller index. With actual U-6 unemployment rates near historic highs, wages stagnant at best, and new job opportunities few and far between, where is the demand for housing going to come from? With tens of millions of homeowners under water on their mortgages and unable to sell even if they wanted to, millions more behind on their mortgage, millions more waiting to be foreclosed, and millions more thinking a strategic default sounds like a reasonable idea, where is the demand for housing going to come from? Those who want to move can't, and those who can afford to don't want to. No one knows where the housing bottom will be, but we're not there yet.

7. Occupy Wall Street wasn't the first movement to question our current state of reality - my personal favorites are The Thrive Movement and The Zeitgeist Movement - but it has been perhaps the most successful at drawing attention to the plight of the 99% and the insanity of the 1%. The coming year will bring renewed vigor and expansion from the Occupy Everything movement, as well as an explosion of similar protest movements in the US. If/when the Eurozone defaults lead to a banking crash and temporary financial shutdown in the US, then Occupy and its siblings will only respond in kind by taking to the streets en masse until Obama and/or the US government intervenes. Either way, my sense is that it's going to get ugly in 2012 before it gets better. It pains me to say so, but I'm predicting that this year we will see troops in the streets. I can only hope and pray that violence is averted and our better nature prevails.

Stay tuned...more 2012 predictions to come!
