Spiritual-Awakening There is a lot of media hype about the Mayan calendar and the end of the world on 12-21-12. That day happens to be Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year in the northern hemisphere and the longest day of the summer southern hemisphere. I do believe that something amazing will happen that day. I like to refer to it as an auspicious day. Astrologically there will be a shift to a higher consciousness but if you are not connected to the universe you could be left behind. These opportunities to vibrate to a higher level are like portals to a new, positive change in the world. Here are 5 things to do before this transition happens. 1. Tie up loose ends and let go. Try and end any unfinished business so that you can start fresh. You have to let go of the old in order to let in the new. 2. Meditate. Don't over think it, just sit still with yourself long enough to get clear and hear your inner voice. All the answers are inside of you, but you have to be quiet enough to listen. You will not find these answers outside of yourself. 3. Let go of regret and any grudges you are holding on too. Write it out and burn it or call whom ever you have the unsaid words with and  resolve the issue so that you can move forward. 4. Chose one thing that isn't working for you anymore and promise to change. Maybe it's a social behavior towards someone, a negative vise like smoking, or a promise to not complain. 5. Clean your space. This is a time where we seem to collect needless gifts. How about clearing out what you already have and give it to someone who has less. The physical process of clearing space translates spiritually and allows new energy to come in. * Evolve and share the movement.
