Live your best possible life. How good can it get?

Dawn of the Fifth World


“There are as many worlds as there are kinds of days, and as an opal changes its colors and its fire to match the nature of a day, so do I.” — John Steinbeck

What I love about the above quotation is the reminder it embodies to us to choose our attitudes wisely and well. The way we respond to situations makes a tremendous difference in what reality… what world… we subsequently find ourselves in.

This reminder to live our lives according to our highest calling and ability is especially important now, as we move through and past the Information Age and toward a new as-yet-unnamed human epoch in history. It may seem hard to contemplate where, exactly, we’re headed when so many things are changing so fast.

If you’ve ever floated down a river on a raft and come to a place where the river narrows, you’ll recall that’s where the water moves most swiftly, rushing fastest through the narrowest rapids. If you’re feeling a bit like you’re speeding through something akin to rapids right now in December 2012, you’re not alone. Not only are we flooded with information, but some of us are noticing that what we focus on is moving from mere idea to reality faster than ever before. Many people have noticed that this past year has been one of the most challenging… and full of unexpected hardships and difficulties, and like me, are looking forward to a fresh start and new beginnings.

If we imagine that we are accelerating down a road in a car instead of down a river, we can visualize how as our speed increases through the rapids, we’d be shifting to higher and higher gears. We can think of the December 2012 gear change as bringing us to a state of consciousness between levels of awareness, while we prepare to move forward. While indigenous peoples such as the Hopi and Mayans see us moving to the transition between long calendar cycles, we might well ask, “Where are we going after the Information Age?’ and “Where do we want to be?”

The direction I’d most like to see us moving in is toward a world based on fundamental core values that make life most enjoyable, such as: compassion, kindness, integrity, harmony, balance, respect, and cooperation. People in this new world will understand the wisdom of making choices and solving problems without fear. Indeed, this is pretty much exactly what optimistic futurists have predicted is coming next, and it is through sharing such intentions that we can best now envision how to arrive there from where we are right now.

Dying to Be MeIf you’re wondering what such a world would be like, or what it would feel like to be in such a state of mind and heart, I’m fairly certain you’ll love a book called Dying to be Me. It’s the real-life story of how Anita Moorjani died of cancer… and then came back to life after an amazing near-death experience in which she realized she could be well simply by dropping all her fears and simply being herself. I love the way Moorjani describes the feeling of pure unconditional divine love she felt–pure agape–and the sense of fearlessness and Oneness she experienced from a state of consciousness that allowed her to watch everything unfolding on Earth… as well as see what was transpiring in the emergency room where doctors were doing everything they could to save her malnourished, cancer-ravished body. This book doesn’t just tell a story about overcoming cancer–it’s really about attaining prosperity and abundance and blessings by letting go of fears and moving into a state of allowing as you are fully 100% yourself. This is a book you’ll likely want to get more than one copy of, so you can loan and give copies away… it’s that good!

 Are you ready to celebrate the end not only of 2012 but the past 7,885 solar years as we move from the fourth to the fifth world at the completion of the long count of 2,880,000 days? Here’s a link to a live countdown to December 21, 2012… all you need for your celebration is your choice of guests, party food, hats, horns and confetti:

Reality ShiftsFor most people, December 21, 2012 and the days soon thereafter will likely feel like most any other day. Even if the biggest reality shifts imaginable occur, most people will  likely adapt to all such changes as if the world has always been this way. This seems to be a big part of the way reality shifts in general, and even with the most remarkable shifts, there is usually such a sense of normalness about all of it, as if some part of ourselves was always conscious to some degree in that other reality. When I’ve noticed reality shifts, as I’ve described in my book, Reality Shifts: When Consciousness Changes the Physical World, there is seldom any truly strange sense of things being wrong or even tremendously different after each reality shift, but rather a sense of “new normalness” about the shifted reality. It will be interesting to see how things continue to change and move forward post 2012, in the fresh new beginning of the new world.

As we ask ourselves and one another, “How good can it get?” we help to collectively envision the most positive imaginable future. This moment in time right here and now is ideal for becoming aware of all our possible selves. This is also the perfect moment to consider how we would most love to live our lives free from fear… and full of love and joy.

Manifesting Abundance Amidst 2012 Chaos

Cynthia Sue Larson

Cynthia Sue Larson

This week I heard from three people who each have been dealing with challenging circumstances that have led them to nearly give up hope, or as one friend wrote,

“I have a topic that I would love to see covered in your blog. Over the past few months, I have noticed that what is happening to me in life is not going along with my thoughts and actions. There has been a lot of incredibly horrible things happening to me, and I’m trying to figure out why. I haven’t done anything that I can think of that would have lead me down the path that I went through. After everything I have gone through, I’m one shade above feeling hopeless. it used to feel like the world was mine to conquer, all i had to do is think and make it so. Now it’s almost like it takes a lot more thinking and thought processes to get things going. When they do start, it’s like I’m slammed back down to step one again and I have to struggle back up again. It keeps happening. These are not thoughts that I was having, just observations that I’m making.

My question is, is there something going on in the Universe right now that is making Reality Shifting much more difficult? Is there any advice you can give to any of us out here who are really struggling just to survive, or to even want to survive? I feel like an alien displaced from it’s planet or a fish out of water…this doesn’t feel right at all anymore.”

Right now in 2012 we are experiencing a great deal of “shadow issues” from our collective unconscious that create a lot of chaos. We see this in terms of current world issues, including economic  and environmental crises.  While there are amazing numbers of reality shifts occurring now,  many people feel confused by difficult events and circumstances. Many people who’ve previously experienced success working with “law of attraction” ideas such as described in the movie The Secret are now hitting roadblocks and losing hope, wondering what they can do, if anything, to regain a sense of living a meaningful, prosperous life.

Any time you feel like a fish out of water, or that things aren’t quite right with the way your intentions play out in the physical world, I recommend starting with reviewing the six steps to attract what you most desire that I describe in chapter six of my book, Aura Advantage: How the Colors in Your Aura Can Help You Attain What You Desire and Attract Success. These provide an excellent road map for living a life of gracefully rewarding flow:

Aura Advantage(1) Energize dreams instead of fantasies,

(2) Get out of your own way,

(3) Listen to your chakras / body,

(4) Expect what you most desire,

(5) Appreciate every moment, and

(6) Do something nice for someone.

There are four additional meditations I suggest for these rapidly-shifting times to get and stay focused on what you most desire even as shadow issues are arising all around. These four meditations can provide you with a jump-start to living a more prosperous life even in the midst of chaotic, challenging, troubling times so many of us are experiencing now in 2012:

Know You Are Loved
When you have a sense of being unconditionally loved and adored for who you are–for the eternal, infinite spirit and soul that you are, you feel a sense of intrinsic worth. Once consciously recognized, nothing can ever take that sense of worth from you, nor can any circumstances ever truly get in the way. Imagining and regaining a sense of direct connection to Oneness–to Divine Source–instantly provides you with a buoyant, open-minded, open-hearted attitude. Intending to be the best you can be brings best results, as does living in accordance with the belief that you are inspired, directed, and animated by your best possible self, guided forward with intuition intended to help you best select options you’ll be happiest with in the long term, that your future self knows you’ll be happiest with… rather than what you think you want today.

Breathe Deeply to Your Core
When stressed, most people breathe shallowly, losing access to their personal power, or Qi. You can regain a sense of energized, calm confidence, inner strength, and balance by becoming physically relaxed while breathing deeply to your second chakra–the area just below your belly button. You can locate this area by placing one hand on your stomach with the thumb on top, resting on your belly button, and the palm of your hand just below. Feel a sense of calmness in your core, taking several deep, slow, steady, relaxed breaths while relaxing all your muscles. Focus on breathing deeply, so you can see and feel your belly button rising and falling with each slow, steady breath.

Let Go of Regrets
In a new paper Don’t Look Back in Anger published in Science, researchers from the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf in Hamburg, Germany, report evidence from two experiments that showed that young and older depressed patients held onto regrets about missed opportunities, while the healthy older participants let regrets go. The key concept here is that our health greatly improves when we let go of thoughts about what could have, should have, or would have been. You can release all such thoughts and emotions by breathing deeply and envisioning that you are releasing all regrets to the center of the earth as you exhale.

Be Grateful 
Since thoughts and feelings are manifesting so quickly now, it’s especially important to retain a sense of everything being just fine, especially regarding past events. Just as you can imagine your best possible future self reaching back through time to guide you forward to make the best possible choices for the long run, so too can you imagine yourself reaching back through time and guiding your attention to realities in which you gained skills, deepened relationships, reached a state of flow from being in the moment doing what you love, felt a sense of purpose for your life, helped others, and achieved meaningful accomplishments. Making regular time for gratitude meditations, keeping a gratitude journal, and writing down each day what went especially well and how you played a meaningful role in that are ways you can develop gratitude.

I hope you’ll enjoy watching and sharing my YouTube video summary of Manifesting Abundance in 2012 Chaos–and please feel free to leave comments either on this blog or on my YouTube video page!

One of the benefits of asking the question, “How good can it get?!” in every situation you find yourself in is that you’re likely to get some pretty wonderful answers.

Love always,
