Being Here and Now
Aluna Joy Yaxkin
August 1999

It is the last days of the millennium… It is no wonder that the media is filled with all kinds of predictions, some wonderful and others downright scary. Many have been waiting for the Summer of 99’s events and the end of the millennium with great anticipation and others with great fear. We are waiting for the great shift in human consciousness and shifts of the ages in Mother Earth. Many are expecting that this will be activated by several great cosmic alignments (grand crosses), the last solar eclipse of the millennium (August 11), ancient Aztec (August 13) and Hopi prophecies (mid July), the completion of calendars, the approaching Comet Lee and increasing solar storms. Many are watching the intensified weather patterns and earth changes, while others are watching the for signals of changes in current events. Others yet are watching their bodies for signs of changing frequencies. So we wait, holding our breath, preparing for the coming events in a way that fits our perception and picture of the future. We can feel the huge wave building. We can feel the calm before the shift. Some are preparing for Heaven on Earth and others are preparing for Armageddon. Either way, we are working very hard and preparing with great dedication for what?….. the FUTURE!

How many events, cosmic and otherwise have we prepared for since the harmonic convergence, now 13 years in history? How many of these major predicted events have we actually seen come to pass… Be honest now… The prophetic dates come and go… over and over… and the disappointment and disillusionment that the Earth didn’t ascend or that we did not fully embody Christ conscious dulls and jades our enthusiasm for the spiritual path. We blame the prophets for not being clear or call them fakes! We blame ourselves for being gullible fluffy new agers that bought into all those impossible, but wonderfully exciting predications. Let’s face it. If you work diligently for a projected future outcome and they never materialize, we eventually loose interest in doing the work.

A good percentage of the prophets are telling the truth! These cosmic alignments, calendars and ancient prophesies have GREAT POTENTIAL to shift our consciousness and the Earth. The energy and the intent is written in the cosmos. But three obvious things keep us from realizing these wonderful shifts into the nirvana states that we dream. 1. We still see these events as future events. 2. We have some doubt based on past disillusions. 3. Fear of the future and the unknown.

The universe rearranges itself according to our vision of reality. If we are always preparing for the future, we will always be preparing and waiting…. preparing and waiting. While we are in preparing mode we actually push desired events away from us! The universe does not give us what we think or dream we want, it gives us exactly what we are taking action on. The universe reacts to ACTION, not desires! So as we prepare, the universe sees our act of preparation, thus giving us more to prepare for. The trick is being able to see and know what is coming down the road of life while being oriented in the present moment! This is true Shamanism and is just where the Masters, The Star Elders and Angelic realms live right now, in the NOW.

Also what we think we want, is not exactly the whole truth. The creative force of the universe reacts, on our behalf, based on our totality. This means the universe acts and delivers to us what is in our conscious mind, as well as our unconscious mind. These last days of the millennium offers us a great opportunity to dig into our unconscious and purge the limiting programming that has been hampering our manifesting heaven on Earth. It is time to ACT AS IF we have realized the VISION. Learn to live in the present moment.

So let say you have mastered the first point and are acting in the moment. When you ACT IS IF… But still have doubt that the event / ascension / shift… will in fact take place, this sets up a self-imposed road block in the future. It is understandable that you may have doubt because of all the event that never manifest the desired results. Doubt is living in the past. Doubt pushes our dreams away. We can doubt ourselves also. Sometimes we feel that we have not worked hard enough on our spiritual path. We haven’t cleaned up our diet enough, prayed enough, forgiven enough, meditated enough, been of service enough…. HEY, get over it! When are you going to own the fact that in this moment ,YOU ARE everything you want to be and MORE than you could possibility imagine. We are made in the image of God. So own this, God does!

So now let’s say we have mastered being in the moment and have erased all doubt about ourselves and our ability to manifest the vision on Earth. Let’s act as if we are the most brilliant masterful light beings we could possibly imagine and that everyone around us is equally brilliant! This brings us to point 3. Oh no… FEAR of the unknown.

When we take huge steps to BEcome all that we truly are. The universe will clean house of anything that is less than light. So before the big clean out…. the universe will test our dedication to moving ahead by putting a great cosmic carrot in front of our faces, tempting us to stay where we are. After all, the universe knows we are heading into the unknown and the unknown can be a scary place. So our old ways are re-wrapped in pretty new perspectives to test if we are ready to leave what is safe, secure and most of all known. It is quiet tempting. But being comfortable is not necessarily where we need to be right now. Being comfortable means that we have walked this road before. If we want to grow, we must step out into the unknown and let go of the past and the fear we may have about the unknown future. Remember fear is a giant road sign saying "This is the way to the NEW and EXCITING EXPERIENCES" and by the way….. FACING FEAR - HEALS IT!

It is true…. these last days of the millennium are powerful ones. The predictions are thick ranging from nirvana to Armageddon. But it is up to us to choose and make changes and to create a new world. Don’t wait around another minute for the right prophecy or the right star alignment to happen before you act on YOUR VISION. Give the power of creation back to YOU, right where the creator wanted it in the first place. Yes… use the prophecies, the cycles, and the stars, the sun, the moon, and the calendars to empower you even further. Yes … use anything you need to get the job done, but don’t let them use you. You are in change remember? The future is right here and NOW. Quit waiting - and DO IT!
