Men reminds you to step powerfully into your commitment as a planetary server! Your assignment includes whatever furthers your personal evolution and the evolution of global mind. You are an awakener, a transformer, an empowered global visionary. In your vision, you have compassion for others, and your decisions are made in the light of global consciousness. Ask yourself how you might experience compassion toward self, the Earth, and others. Be guided towards types of work, relationships, places to live, and projects that will benefit the Earth and her creatures. Allow your spirit to expand. Soar on your spreading wings and planetary perspective. Affirm: “Through you, Gaia, I am also transformed! I am awakening as the return of divine love and light. We are all one. Gaia, as you awaken, I heal myself. As I awaken, you are healed, and together our petals open ecstatically to the new Sun of Flowers.”
You are a member of the one global family, a planetary server and transformer. Men asks you to join in lifting the collective mind. It is up to each one of us to hold a positive vision and affirmation, for the means by which this miracle will occur is through changes in the one affecting the greater whole.
Imagine the profound impact your loving thoughts have on planetary mind. You do make a difference! As you connect individually with the larger crystal grid network, your power is multiplied exponentially. This galactic grid is also known as the Mayan cobweb.
The greatest gift you can offer to the planet is to simply be the love. Believe in yourself and your dreams and visions! Remember your special gifts, your path of service on Earth, your promise to serve the light. Everything you are connects to the greater whole. You are starseeded! You have the vision of the eagle. Believe in your dreams. You are the hope and the vision revealed.
To the Mayan, Men represents the eagle, the one who soars in conscious flight above the Earth, the one whose vision sees far beyond the mind of humanity. Men is the compassion of all hearts linked as one. Men is the essence of dawn - clear, fresh, and newly charged to fulfill your most cherished dreams. With unconditional love, Men pierces the depths of collective hopelessness and lifts mass consciousness. It urges the alliance of the faithful of the stars to serve through their remembrance of the light.
The harmonic wisdom of Men is flow, representing smooth, uninterrupted movement. Men is the flow of planetary consciousness. In this evolutionary development, whatever serves the larger pattern also serves you. In this, there is a model of flowing wholeness, of how to move gracefully with yourself and the greater whole. Men gives the cosmic dancer wings. It asks you to fly, riding the magical currents of your life with the vision and grace of a soaring eagle. The energy of Men gives you the ability to flow in every moment, without preconceived ideas, plans, or belief systems, creating the crest of the wave on which you surf to new heights of joy and delight!
The energy of Men asks you to believe in yourself and believe in your dreams and visions, no matter how they may be perceived by others. You are the eagle's vision.
One shadow of Men is a loss of hope, excitement, or joy in your life. This can stem from a reaction to mass consciousness or from the precipitous state of the world. In your deep desire to effect change, you may feel overwhelmed in a vast ocean of consciousness that seems hopelessly enmeshed in issues of separation, limitation, and judgment. If so, remember that elements of this enormous field are often attracted to your personal dreamfield for healing. These duality constructs are deeply rooted on the planet. Don't be discouraged. The global mind is in the process of a profound transformation. As you heal these issues within yourself, you offer gifts of healing to the larger reality. Do not underestimate the power of your personal transformation and its effect on planetary mind: "Gaia, as you awaken, I heal myself. As I awaken, you are healed.”
This wondrous pool of planetary consciousness is full of archetypal mysteries, hopes, dreams, and fears. Some beings may feel that their personal world is “falling apart” as their lives expand into the larger dream. Sometimes this feeling manifests as hopelessness, which may even lead to a desire to leave the Earth. Remember, you are in human form for a divine reason! You have chosen this form in order to participate in the great miracle! Walk with ease in commitment to your destiny. Allow yourself to explore and play compassionately as a planetary server. You are the emissary of the great change.
In the shadow of Men, you may also be so obsessed by finding your “purpose” that you miss seeing how simple it can be. Your purpose can be as simple as expressing love and light - and that is enough! Take heart. There are great gifts being offered for your participation in healing the global mind.
Another shadow of Men is when your purpose as a planetary server becomes a messianic obsession, creating a “rescuer complex”. This may also be seen in self-sacrificing behavior, an inability to say no, or an attachment to rescuing others. In this shadow, your desire to serve needs to be tempered with self-nourishment and sustaining rest. If you neglect your personal needs and desires and do not allow time for joy and rest, you may feel depleted and lacking. Hold yourself in the same compassion as you hold the world. Strive to keep your personal needs in balance with planetary service. Fill your personal cup. Take loving care of yourself, and your cup will naturally overflow to empower your work with others.
Be hopeful. Believe in yourself! Believe in your vision! Just keep playing and dancing, and you will find your place in the larger pattern.
