I believe July 17, 2010 is the first important marker for the ascension of humanity on this planet. It is one of the markers in time given to us by the ancient Mayans:
July 17 - Breeze of Unity Consciousness
November 2, 2010 - End of the 6th Night, beginning of the 7th Day
March 8th, 2011 - Wind of Unity Consciousness
October 28, 2011 - End of all Wave Movements
December 21, 2012 - End of 5,125 year cycle and 26,000 cycle
The Mayan Calendar gives a road map for the changes we are presently going through as we approach the December 21, 2012 date. Humanity may have to go through some big crises, and surrender to the truth that is only revealed during such times for us to make the necessary changes.
We are still in what Carl Calleman, who gives us this interpretation of the Mayan Calendar, labels as a "Night," a period, a time for corrections. "Unity Consciousness" comes during the "Night." Therefore, July 17 may be a difficult time for Humanity. I see the oil spill in the Mexican Gulf, many corruptions being revealed, and the possibility of some big economic crises. This could cause some people to go into "The Chicken Little" syndrome as they run around, declaring, "The sky is falling!"
As Lightworkers it is important that we see crises for what they are, as just the necessary catalysts for change. There are millions of us. We were born, on purpose, to be here at this time. Our job is to hold the Light. We hold the keys that will push mass consciousness into Unity. If we can remember that all is well with the larger picture, humanity will sail through this July 17th marker.
Let us hold the Light,
And be the Beacons in the Night!
