Shamanic Wisdom: A Year for Action: 2012 Jan Engels-Smith

The year 2012 is a time for divine action. It is time to put action to your desires and create a lifestyle that is in alignment to the new truths that have emerged. The year has exponential potential for individuals. A changed humanity is being birthed, and your active participation is needed. The desire for a new world and a love-based society is at the tipping point.

Definitions and Redefinitions of Truth

Since the essential nature of human beings is notoriously resistant to change, the "shadow" part of us will surface during these transitional times. The shadow exposes us to our resistances, wounds, and faulty beliefs—all of the obstacles to our advancement. The difficulty of shadow work is that it can often be insidious, and you can be in full participation with it before you know it.

Strive to act as a witness to yourself. Watch and observe yourself like a scientist might observe an experiment. Notice what thoughts or beliefs create which emotions. Ask how often you stay rigid with an attitude or opinion and why? Remember that beliefs are created by thoughts and they will determine your reality. Thus everyone can prove that his or her belief system is true, because our attraction of like vibrations affirms the truth for us. A person will have experience after experience that supports his or her belief system. In that it is his or her reality, it is true. However, this does not necessarily make it either right or helpful for the individual. Remember that what we attract to us might promote positive conditions or might draw in negative energy and prove damaging.
