What is the meaning of the oil spill that is occurring (in May 2010) in the Gulf of Mexico?
You may be hoping for information that will bring new hope for resolving this issue. Because this is a third-dimensional experience, created by third-dimensional choices, the hope for resolution lies in what you choose to do in the material world. There is no way to escape this fact – ultimately, you are working with the consequences of the long-standing choices made by humanity.
Like everything, this event is resonating at every level of existence -- in the physical, social, energetic, higher dimensions, at every level -- this event is resonating for all of humanity. The primary energy of this is the energy of birth, which may not seem to make sense at first. Just like in birth, this is the painful new beginning of a fresh perspective.
At a more third dimensional level, this is a wakeup call for humanity. It has always been written that as you did damage to your environment, which is Planet Earth, eventually you would need to wake up and notice that damage. Then you have a whole series of choices to make as a human race. You can strive to mitigate the damage and heal the earth or you can ignore it until things get bad enough that you choose to mitigate and heal the earth.
Either way at some point, in order to survive, humanity is going to change their primary drives toward wholeness and healing for all forms of life on the planet. That is the inevitable end result. It may that there are very few humans left alive when you finally make that decision. Until then, you will see progressively bigger and more startling wakeup calls. Most of them will present themselves as what you are calling ecological disasters, manmade disasters, and increasingly they will affect human beings rather than just animals. It will affect human beings in more immediate and irrevocable ways. This is yet another wakeup call in regard to the process of humanity in having swung out of balance with nature and now being called to swing back into balance with nature.
As most of you know, you have a very long road ahead of you. Even if you choose to totally change the whole human race's perspective on the value of ecology, you would still have generations of work ahead of you to physically resolve the damage you have done. Actually, most of the work still lies in simply helping more of humanity recognize the need to bring yourselves back into balance with ecology. It is a wakeup call in a third dimensional level.
There is this deeper spiritual meaning of birth. The energy of the Gulf of Mexico at this time looks like a birth canal and if you imagine birth occurring for a mammal, for a human being or any other mammal, the birth canal expands, it extends, it sometimes tears. There is a lot of blood and a lot of other fluid. It is a messy event and energetically you are birthing a new potential for humanity. That wakeup call has so much potential. It has to come through a messy and painful event.
What you are likely to find is that that wakeup call is going to evolve over the course of the next several years. The first major shift occurring is people who never thought that they would worry about ecology or being in balance with Planet Earth are finding themselves now necessarily concerned with it because their lives are being directly impacted. That number of people, that number of people being directly impacted will continue to expand because right now the strongest potential is that the oil will spread to many other coastlines before it is resolved. It will be present for right now, potentially for decades. That is one of the immediate effects. In the hearts and minds of many, many individuals, they're waking up to the truth about your current relationship about Planet Earth and the fact that it is out of alignment.
There is a secondary impact for most of the world, and certainly for the western world, in regard to your oil or petroleum resources and the impact will occur in money. A lot of people will lose a lot of money. Some very wealthy people will lose a lot of money because of their misguided efforts to become wealth through oil production, but even more people will lose money by paying higher prices for oil and by paying higher taxes to help clean up the mess that has been made. That larger impact will also serve as a wakeup call for many, many more people. If humanity and particularly we will be more specific about the United States, if people in the United States had collectively shifted more toward coming into balance with nature, you may not have had such a large and far reaching and impactful disaster.
You are not being punished -- you are simply being woken up. Just like a teenager who is reluctant to get out of bed in the morning, if a parent pushes them and nudges them lovingly, they may not wakeup so eventually the parent has to shout or push the teenager off the bed or throw cold water on their face or something that feels like a punishment but really is an effort to get you to wakeup.
We know that for many of you who have long been aware of the ecological imbalance and long been invested in helping to resolve it, it is very frustrating to see such a large disaster happen despite your efforts. In order for this to be resolved for humanity, humanity as a whole needs to make the shift. It is always lonely and it is always difficult to be a pioneer to be ahead of the curve. For those of you in that position, there is some value in it as well. That is the meaning of the Gulf oil spill. It is actually pretty straightforward. It is a direct consequence of your actions.
How can we help?
The question of how you can help is that if the primary purpose of this in the larger scale of things is to encourage people to wake up and change their core values or realign how their behavior matches their core values. One of the most important things you can do to help here is to actually talk about this with your friends and neighbors and to avoid blaming or avoid saying, "I told you so." It is difficult to come out of denial. It is very painful to come out of denial. It will serve you to be gentle and soft but totally willing to talk about this.
Talk about the events with your friends and neighbors, not in the form of debate, but simply bring up the topic, watch the conversation evolve and just gently take note of who is waking up. There will be people who are resisting or denying the truth of this impact and there is not much you can do to change their minds. The people who are suddenly realizing that their actions, that somehow they're connected to the ecological disaster, turn your attention to those people. Without blame and without any sense of self-righteousness, be willing to talk about and brainstorm together how you can make changes in your lives that help bring you and therefore to some extent, bring humanity back into alignment with the balances of nature.
This is a long slow process. Many of you hope that this will be the final awakening. Like this will be bad enough that everyone will suddenly wake up but this is really the kind of thing that's going to change over the course of years and even generations. It is vitally important that you do your part.
There are also some things you can do physically. Ultimately, you must change your relationship to energy – we mean this on the physical level of electricity and oil, and we mean it in regard to metaphysical energy. The process of realizing that everything is energy and that you are made of love goes hand-in-hand with the process of releasing your consumptive behaviors and ceasing your destruction of Planet Earth. You MUST address this at both a physical and an energetic level.
Organizations are going to emerge to help support the cleanup of this mess and also the prevention of future such disasters. Those organizations are the seeds for organizations that eventually help you be better stewards of wetlands and coastal areas across the world. It will serve you to support those organizations. Some of you will be called to support them by volunteering and some of you will send money. It will be important to wait and pay attention to make sure you are sending money to the organizations that actually have staying power and integrity. Essentially there are seeds being planted for what will become long-standing organizations that help everyone steward these natural areas. They will arise out of crisis and some of them will last as long-term stewards that will essentially be channels through which people can connect with nature.
There is something you can do on an energetic level as well. This is one of those physical events that is particularly susceptible to your intentions; to the energy that you send through prayer, through meditation, through visualization. Because it is occurring in water and because it is liquid, it can be easily moved and the oceans particularly respond to energy because they are reservoirs of energy. It actually will make a difference for you to visualize, pray or do some of those spiritual practices to send light to the area. We suggest that you not get too caught up in trying to decide where the oil should or should not go because you will all have different ideas about that and none of you has a complete enough perspective to really know.
Instead, send light with the intention that the oceans manage the oil in the way that best serves them because the oceans, their currents, the life in the oceans, all of them are connected to this and you can funnel energy to them and they will know what to do. They will know where to send the oil, they will know how best to mitigate its effects as long as it is there. Simply send light in the most loving and empowering energy you can to the area. This is the kind of thing that will help you feel better because you are doing something. You will not see direct results right away, but over time you can know that by doing that things will turn out better than they would have had you not done this. As long as your vision is limited, you will not see directly how that effect occurs, but trust us and know that it truly does have an effect. Prayer works, meditation works, your loving intentions, they really do work to make the world function better than it would without you here. (May 2010)
