Time to Imagine


I am writing this on the eve of the 2008 elections, knowing that by the time this article is read, the elections will be just a memory. I know who I hope will win. I even know who I predict will win. Whether or not I am right, though, life, by the time you read this, will have changed for our country.

The thing about being a psychic is that people expect me to know more than I really do. Prediction is uncertain at best, especially when it involves global events. Still, it is the end of the year and a few ponderings about 2009 seem called for.

What my guides tell me is that we are thoroughly in the midst of the changes predicted by so many for the years around 2012. They say that the world will not end, but that it will most certainly change dramatically. This is much less likely to be because of earthquakes and other natural disasters (although there will certainly be some of those) than it will be on a financial and security basis. The very core of what we have been led to believe – and our "destiny" – has changed.

At some level, those of us in the United States have been taught that things always increase. Stocks inevitably go up, incomes increase, houses get larger and increase in value, and our children are raised with more expectations and privileges than we had. Even when that does not end up being true in our own lives, some part of us believes that it is our heritage and right.

The prophecy and legacy of 2012 is bringing that into question. My guides tell me that we are being ushered into the dawn of a new Aquarius. It will be a time of "brotherhood and understanding" when resources are more equally shared by all. Isn’t that what we all wanted? Then why is it hurting so much?

I am reminded of the immortal words of John Lennon:

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world…

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

Hmmm. I remember how touched I was by the words of this song. Then I see how it is now coming into play. And how I am not all that thrilled by losing MY possessions and am having a little bit of hard time with the idea of not being greedy. I guess it was far easier to sing the song than it is to really be willing to share MY stuff and money with the rest of the world.

My guides tell me those of us who have been envisioning world peace and brotherhood have, in fact, materialized much of the global financial "crisis." Our intention-setting has started a new change in the world economy. It hurts a little.

In the years to come, some of us might have less stuff than we used to think we needed. We might have to move to smaller homes that are closer to where we work. Our big cars might be replaced by smaller, more efficient vehicles. Maybe we could share a lawn mower with our neighbors or car pool to save gas.

Nobody, including me, wants to go "backwards" in our financial well-being. But, lots of us wanted to Imagine the world as one. Talk about giving the universe mixed messages. Now is our time to figure out what really is important to us.

We can whine about it (believe me, I am), but we can also look at the bigger picture and smile a little. Enjoy the changes, my friends.
