My daughter referred to me as a Cougar this morning at 8am. She is not used to her mother being alone in the world without a mate, so we laughed and laughed until call waiting buzzed in at 8:32. I finished my call and punched in my friend Penny on the other line. She said, “Can you talk a moment, did you hear about the Cougar (Mountain Lion) in Downtown Tulsa last night?”. My heart sank and I expected what I had come to feel all too often, that drop in the heart, that catch in the breath, expecting a tale of animal abuse by humans. “No”, I softly replied. “Well you are going to want to hear this Maya”, and she began to tell me about a female Mountain Lion who had been in a tree in the backyard of a North Tulsa family and had been captured and taken to the Tulsa Zoo last night right about the time that golf ball hail was pummeling my home. But, that was not the whole of it. My friend said that as she was waking that morning, you know that twilight time of between sleep and waking, a female Mountain Lion came to her and said, “I am here for Maya.”. That is why she was calling me….because the Cougar was calling me. I began to weep. This was not the first time a big cat had broken into my life right at a time I was heart sick, heart aching and questioning my place in this perilous world or whether I had the strength and the faith to do all I am called to do in this life. The Universe right on time and unmistakably direct.
Having just returned from Africa where there was no line drawn between nature, animals and humans, where the veil of fear that we are all connected was non existant, and where I found I fully embodied myself for the first time in my 60 years on this planet, I was not stunned by this news about the Mountain Lion and I was grateful and hopeful. A place I had nearly lost in myself after returning to Tulsa to be met as I got off the plane to news of the deep loss of a friend and the crisis of my mother being rushed to the hospital. No time for jet lag, no time to take a breath or ponder the inevitable question, “How God do I integrate all that I experienced in Africa with my life in Tulsa. How do I continue to embody my own certainty of the fabric of life being so much more vast than we ever knew, while I live life a moment at a time?” There was not time to pose the question. The test began before I could change my shoes and hop in a car.
Now, nearly a month since I arrived home, my grieving over the friend I love and nursing my mother through heart failure has led me to a new adventure I had not anticipated. My mother coming home to my home…to me…to die. I moved here three and a half years ago and lived with my mother for a year as she was dying. She did not. I moved to Tulsa. And yes it is true what they say, if you want to hear God laugh, tell him your plans.
And what does this have to do with a Mountain Lion, a Cougar being found in a backyard of Tulsa and breaking into my life? This is the miracle of listening to the animals I want to share with you. Since listening to the animals is the same thing as listening to the heart of your own true nature. All truth lies there. Here is where this young Mountain Lion led me this morning. Please take the journey with me.
I hung up the phone with my friend and knew I needed to Channel the young female. I was nervous since the last time this happened it was a large Male Lion who led me to Africa…somewhere I had never intended to be and that changed the course of my life forever. I wiped my eyes and made a cup of tea. Quietly breathing I asked for guidance and then held an image of this Cougar in my minds eye and the eye of my heart. Here she came bounding into full view. “What is your name?” I asked. Ursa, you can call me Ursula. This name reveals itself as my story unfolds as to why Ursula. Then I asked, “Are you here to speak with me?” “Yes!” she replied. Here is what she said.
“You have become distracted Maya and it is understandable with the life you are having that you would be unable to attend to the gifts you discovered in Africa. But time is of the essence in every way. We are all here to teach you. You are here to teach also. You need to become far more serious with who you are and not run away from the gift you have. The caretaking you are doing for people who need you is not the problem. This too is part of your path on this earth but we are needing your voice and we need it now. I am your guardian here in Tulsa. Even if I am at the zoo, I am bringing with me the power of my specie to assist you in difficult times and to protect you. There are no White Lions in Oklahoma, but I am here. So, you will need to make me a visible part of your life and create the space to come to meet with me in your inner plane, so that I might tell you what you need to know. When you see me you see you. Courage, instinct, the ability to shape shift are aspects of yourself you need to cultivate more and more since times will be very difficult physically on your planet in the coming days.
Your mother is part of the process of you listening to yourself. She will be with you which is as it should be…creating your own extended pride of sorts. The time will be short as you do the preparation you need for what is coming next in your life. Be open, vigilant, expectant. I will lead you to understanding about why your mother is coming to live and die with you. Trust me.
I want you to read about Cougar and Mountain Lion and see what resonates with you. I am a very maternal Mountain lion, sensual, but very loyal and solitary. As you see I am here alone, not with a group or a family or even a mate. Like you. Use your power of your solitary self to strengthen you inner core of faith in self and in the Divine in each of us. All of the animals bring a particular gift and ability to the planet. You will be more involved with us over time.
And Now the Story Unfolds
Q. What can I do to help you?
You can find me. Visit and sit outside where I am, ask about me and where I came from. I am also here to remind the others here at the zoo about their wild nature. The animals are down hearted and not in themselves here. They sense what is happening on the planet and are unable to understand or do anything. They cannot move to safe places either. They cannot relate to one another. I am here to talk to them as well. Go to your Internet and look for the videos or the articles about inter-specie communication in Seattle, about what is happening in Hawaii with the Dolphins, about the miracles of animals in Tsunamis or natural disasters. The Seattle Connection will lead you to what you need to truly hear.
So I did just that and cast my fate into cyberpace locating a place in Washington called www.interspecies.com who work with music and Whales. I instantly found an article on “Cougar Existentialism”. Odd. But I knew better. Here is what I found for your consideration. Please visit the site for the full story of the Cougar in their camp.
“A confrontation with a mountain lion made me recognize that humanity’s longing for serene wilderness is a cultural novelty first popularized two hundred and fifty years ago by a coterie of European intellectuals led by Rousseau. Before Rousseau, the dark forest was regarded not only as a place to be avoided, but as a being to be appeased. Thirty thousand years ago, caves scattered high in the Swiss Alps served as Neanderthal ceremonial sites where a priesthood attempted to placate the spirit of the cave bear, and thus of the entire dark forest. Cabinets full of bear skulls offer us the relics of the earliest known religion. Significantly, the exuberance of this Neanderthal cult may have resulted in the eventual extinction of the cave bear. Joseph Campbell concluded that the demise of the bears not only destroyed the cult of appeasement but, by a leap of imagination, may also be understood as the source of the destruction of the Neanderthal race as well.
How does this same circular pattern relate to our own civilization? We drive predators out of the deep forest by relentless clear cutting and then shoot them in so-called unrelated incidents when, seeking food, they migrate into populated areas. Tragically, the place where lions lie down with lambs exists nowhere else but the minds of idealists like Thoreau. Every instinct and muscle of a cougar is honed for killing. Even the environmentalists who work so hard to save predators do not actually want one living nearby. The truth of the matter is that predators who co-inhabit areas where human beings wish to visit or live must alter their behavior (which is impossible), or risk extermination (which is occurring everywhere).
In her own need to understand, Linda concluded that “our” was killed for “following its bliss”. It simply means that cougars get shot for being cougars and not for any act they do out of character. Those cougars exhibiting any measure of curiosity or outgoing behavior towards humans have always been the first ones shot. Likewise, only the stealthiest and those most fearful of the human species survived. The predators thus become what we make of them: co-evolved into creatures of the shadow world admired for their strength and cunning, but justifiably feared and eventually annihilated for the crime of inhibiting human recreational opportunities. If there had ever been even a few token, friendly, (possibly even ambassador) cougars who sought out human contact as dolphins do today; then no one will ever know about it unless they read between the lines of native mythology.”
And there in the rest of the story was a short sentence referring to a woman I had only heard of, Ursula LeGuin, a famous fantasy writer who wrote a short story entitled, May’s Lion. My heart got very quiet since, like the lion, I could smell something coming my way. Again for your consideration.
Summary of “May’s Lion”
May’s Lion is really two stories in one: the first is narrated by a woman who knew May, the story’s protagonist, when the narrator was a child, and she retells the story May told her about the time a sick mountain lion came into her yard. Uncertain of what to do, she called the sheriff’s office. Police officers shot the lion because, according to May, “there was nothing else they knew how to do.” (Just like the Cougar shot in Washington)
The second story is the narrator’s fictionalized recounting of May’s story. In this version, May finds the lion in her yard, and in spite of her own fear she believes he has come for a reason. She offers the animal a bowl of milk, and sings softly to soothe her. She realizes “She had come for company in dying; that was all.” This she offers him, and the lion dies there in her yard.
Commentary by the Editor
While this story does not deal directly with the doctor-patient relationship or the care of dying (human) patients, the two versions of the tale offer a springboard for discussing the nature of caregiving at the end of life. What does it mean to accompany someone in his or her dying? What fears come up, both for the caregiver and the cared-for? How can the physician observer relinquish control, honoring the dignity and spirit of the patient? How can a physician determine a patient’s needs when the patient is unable to articulate them? When might drastic interventions be called for?
Which version offers the lion a more humane end? (Although LeGuin is clearly on the side of version 2, in which the lion dies naturally, an argument might certainly be made for the “putting to sleep” of terminally ill animals–and people?) The last lines of the story alone give readers something to think about: “She came to you. She brought her death to you, a gift; but the men with the guns won’t take gifts, they think they own death already. And so they took from you the honor she did you, and you felt that loss.”
I was stunned, in awe, my own healing in the words, the doubt of my choices, my losses, my dashed plans, my aloneness, my fear of bringing my dying mother home with me, swept away. Calm tears roll down my face as I write this and the weather outside is stormy, lightening nearby, thunder crashing.
This is the lesson. There is an eye to every storm in our personal lives, a place to consciously stand as the storm of change clamors around us. Within a Tornado it is called the Cone of Silence. This is the still place that all of us have to occupy in the center of our hearts. From that place all things are possible. There is a place in the heart to endure our collective reality on the planet and there is a place of calm and serenity in the process of death. Fear is the only expression of the mind that can change all of that to a lie.
Ursa came for a reason. It was personal. It was about our collective fear, it was about accompanying death. She is now at the Tulsa Zoo. It was her choice and her sacrifice of freedom to walk into a human back yard. This one Lion cared about me, about my mother, about me living in my power and about the healing of the planet. I can do no less than she has. Sacrifice everything for the exact reasons.
So this story has only begun. I will be sending you more of the story as I connect with this solitary Cougar. I will also follow this by sharing a message I received that some of you have already read from the Hathor’s, which has all to do with what you have read so far I believe. A comfort in times of chaos and inner turmoil. A map to steer by, like the Big and Little Dipper.
And to add to the serendipitous nature of our universe here is what Ursa and Ursula mean and what Mountain Lion energy is all about. Please write with comment or questions.
Much love to you all, Maya Christobel
And a Friend, Joe Garrison, and wonderful writer, reminded me of this poem I have loved.
When the animals come to us,
asking for our help,
will we know what they are saying?
When the plants speak to us
in their delicate, beautiful language
will we be able to answer them?
When the planet herself
sings to us in our dreams,
will we be able to wake ourselves, and act?
– Gary Lawless, Earth Prayers
“Mountain Lion is a take charge totem or energy. Mountain Lion people are such natural leaders that others tend to take their leadership for granted. If no one else is leading, Mountain Lion will naturally take over. Mountain Lion is not often allowed to show vulnerability. Mountain Lion is graceful and balances intention, strength and responsibility. Others are always safe when Mountain Lion is in charge. However, Mountain Lion does not think twice about taking on all the work. Examine whether you are delegating effectively. When you do everything for others, you train them to depend on you.
It is the female Mountain Lion who is the hunter. It involves lessons in the use of leadership. It is the unusual individual who has not abused power the first time in a position of leadership. Mountain Lion is an energy that cannot be caged. If you try to manipulate and control a Mountain Lion person, it will backfire. Mountain Lion needs to be free and unfettered.”
The Meaning of Ursula, Ursa
The name reaches toward our heavens and relates to the star constellation the Seven Sisters as well and the Big and Little Dipper, Polaris and our planet Earth. As you may have read about the White Lions they too say they are brought here as Star Children. Your examination of the deep truths is encouraged.
History and mythology
Ursa Minor is commonly visualized as a baby bear with an unusually long tail. The tail was said to have been lengthened from that usually expected for a bear, because of its being held by the tail and spun around the pole.(The center of the sky), also related to Polaris and the North Star.
Previously, Ursa Minor was considered to be just seven close stars, mythologically regarded as sisters. In early Greek mythology, the seven stars of the Little Dipper were considered to be the Hesperides, daughters of Atlas. Together with the nearby constellations of Boötes, Ursa Major, and Draco, it may have formed the origin of the myth of the apples of the Hesperides, which forms part of the Labours of Hercules.
In earliest times, Ursa Minor was named the Dragon’s wing, and was considered a part of Draco. The dragon’s wing as anasterism is now long forgotten.
In other cultures, Ursa Minor was the hole in which the Earth’s axle found its bearing. In Hindu mythology, the Pole Star isDhruva (the word means “pole” today), and there is a story behind him becoming a star”
Ursula is a female given name of Latin origin, meaning “little female bear”.
Ursula (crater), crater on Titania, a moon of Uranus.
Saint Ursula (“little female bear” in Latin) is a group of holy virgins who on some uncertain date were killed at Cologne.Saint Ursula (“little female bear” in Latin) is a British Christian saint. Her feast day in the Catholic Church is October 21. Because of the lack of sure information about the anonymous group of holy virgins who on some uncertain date were killed at Cologne.
The Hathor’s Message
Transition States of Consciousness
Chaotic Nodes are clusters of chaotic events. According to the Hathors, Earth has entered a Chaotic Node and, as a result, we can expect ever-increasing levels of chaos—including but not limited to earthquakes, volcanic activity, aberrant weather patterns, ecological distress, as well as economic, social and political turmoil.
Transition States of Consciousness are what the Hathors call the in-between places when a major loss has occurred and we find ourselves temporarily poised between an old reality that has passed away and a new reality that has not yet fully formed.
Perceptual markers are a term the Hathors use to describe how we make sense of our world and navigate through our lives using our five senses.
By their very nature Chaotic Nodes tend to generate transition states of consciousness. Transition states of consciousness emerge when perceptual markers disappear. And when this occurs you enter a null zone in which your old reality no longer exists, or has changed radically, while your new reality has not yet come into existence.
Due to the fact that you have entered an even more intense phase of the Chaotic Node, we wish to share with you our views regarding transition states, in the hopes that you will be able to utilize this knowledge for your own benefit.
For our purposes we can divide transition states into three primary categories: 1) personal transition states, 2) collective transition states and 3) physical death.
Personal Transition States
Let us turn our attention to personal transition states first, for your personal perception is the pivotal point around which your perceived reality operates.
Your perception of reality is fundamentally a personal creation. It is influenced by the collective perception of your culture, time, place and circumstance, but fundamentally your perception of what is real and not real is a creation—your creation.
Your perception of reality depends upon habits of perception, if you are like most persons. You are used to experiencing certain realities in your life and these tell you where you are, so to speak. You wake up in the morning and you look to the clock and the collective perception of time is immediately before you. Your choice to engage this illusion, or not, is a personal one. Indeed, one of the signs of spiritual mastery is the ability to navigate cultural illusions successfully while clearly understanding their nature.
When a situation in your personal life shifts dramatically there is a tendency for the perceptual markers to disappear or re-organize themselves.
Let us present one possible scenario. If you have worked at the same job for many years you have built your life around the demands of this position. You eat lunch at a certain time. You return home at a certain time. You interact with others in specific ways, tailored to fit the demands of your job.
If that job were suddenly removed, unexpectedly, those perceptual markers would disappear. There would be no need to get up at a certain time, eat at a certain time, return home at a certain time, and the people you interacted with for the bulk of your waking hours would no longer be available to you.
This situation is inherently disorienting for most people. Again, the perceptual markers have disappeared.
The same phenomenon occurs when any radical shift in your personal life takes place. If a relationship that is important to you suddenly ends the perceptual markers of that relationship disappear, and you enter the transition state of consciousness.
If you have a health crisis and your physical life is affected in radical ways the perceptual markers disappear, and this can be disorienting. You have entered a transition state of consciousness.
As the Chaotic Node increases in its intensity more and more persons will experience the shock waves of their old reality crumbling before them. What was certain in their lives is now uncertain. What was solid ground is seen to be no longer solid. We mean this both figuratively and literally.
There is another wave of transition states that is emerging from this Chaotic Node. It is already affecting many persons, but its affects will spread out in consciousness much like a tsunami.
This particular transition state has to do with the collapse of the collective lies of your culture. Increasingly more and more of you will see behind the shadow play; you will sense the puppet masters, and although their identities may elude you, you will see with increasing reality that aspects of your culture are a manipulation, a limitation, and in many cases, downright lies.
The lie that we are speaking to here is not the lie of economics, the lie of wars, or the lie of confining religions, but the lie of your identity—a lie that ensures your imprisonment. This lie is the belief and cultural assertion that you are nothing more than a physical human being and that there are, in fact, no other realms of being beyond your earthy experience.
The recognition of this lie is a harbinger of personal freedom, but in its beginning stages it can be quite disorienting. This is because multidimensional experiences are so different from your earthly day-to-day experiences. If you find yourself marooned between your earthly and multidimensional life, you have entered a transition state of consciousness.
Our purpose in sharing this information is to suggest a practical course of action during transition states of consciousness.
When you personally enter a powerful transition state you might, like many human beings, remain stuck in overwhelm. Many individuals find the shock of realizing that their perceptual markers have disappeared, along with the reality that they assumed to be real, deeply disturbing.
Due to the fact that time is accelerating—and by this we mean more events taking place in less time—remaining in a state of shock or overwhelm is a psychological indulgence which you cannot afford. The essential point we wish to convey here is that regardless of the nature of the transition state, whether it is personal in nature having to do with changes in your personal life, or due to recognizing your cultural manipulation—you are the creator of your reality.
You may have stories to explain why suddenly your life is bereft, but these are just stories. You may blame other persons, situations, or institutions for your problem, but this is misplaced responsibility. Your stories may be true and there may be other persons, situations or institutions to blame, but when you have entered a transition state of consciousness, you are at the central vortex of a powerful creative process. There is no reason or need to cry over “spilt milk” as one of your folk sayings goes. What is lost is lost. What is gone is gone.
Now the central question becomes, “What will you do?”
Will you remain stunned, in shock, in overwhelm, anger and sadness? Or will you step into your identity as a creator of your life?
To those of you who choose to remain in lower states of consciousness, we have no comment.
Our comments are for those of you courageous enough and bold enough to step into your identity as creators. If you are one of these, here is what we suggest.
When everything disappears, meaning the perceptual markers of your former reality, understand that you have entered into a void point.
A void point is a critical transition between an old reality and a new one. That which was, has ended. Instead of regretting the loss, you accept the void. This is, for many persons, a challenging undertaking, because in the void point there is nothing that can be done. You must simply be a witness to it, and to yourself, for in this no-man’s land there are no perceptual markers.
Be careful what new markers you put into place, for these ideas and beliefs will be the stars in the new sky of your mind, and you shall navigate your way into these new times by the stars (thoughts and beliefs) that you have placed in the heavens of your own consciousness. So be wise when you go about creating new stars, our fellow navigators of the Mystery.
Collective Transition States of Consciousness
The human collective, from our perspective, is currently like an immense cosmic serpent shedding its old skin, writhing and twisting, scraping off old encumbrances. Some of these take the form of economic turmoil. Some of them are political in nature. Some of them are the collapse and transformation of cultural institutions. And some of these writhings and twistings are related to earthquake and volcanic activity, as well as aberrant weather patterns.
As natural and manmade disasters increase, more and more of you will find yourselves entering transition states of consciousness. Obviously those who experience an earthquake, volcano or destructive weather directly are the most prone to enter transition states, but those of you who are empathic in nature can experience the brunt of a natural or manmade disaster as if you were physically present.
Indeed as the veil that separates human consciousnesses from one another dissolves, more and more of you will experience the changes taking place in the world at a visceral level.
We now wish to address the question of a new creation for those of you who may find yourself in the aftermath of a natural or manmade disaster, such as an earthquake, a volcanic eruption, or destructive weather patterns.
If the destructive force is strong enough, the perceptual markers of your former reality may no longer exist. Your home or place of business may no longer be there. You may find yourself dealing with shortages of food and water, and there are any number of variables that can come together to create a state of shock and overwhelm.
We wish to be very clear in what we are about to say. Shock and overwhelm in the face of disasters are a natural mammalian response, and if you are to transcend and transform the moment you must reach upward to higher dimensions of your own existence, your own being, to those realms of consciousness that are beyond time and space.
To the extent that you are able to incorporate the transcendent aspects of your being as part of the equation for your survival, you will be able to mitigate the shock and overwhelm.
The central feature that needs to be identified in the midst of chaos, any form of chaos, is the portal of opportunity.
This opportunity for survival or for a new life may present itself in ways you do not expect. This is because the perceptual markers are no longer in place and your consciousness may not recognize an opportunity when it presents itself.
There is a deep-seated human habit, or tendency, that wishes to conform new realities to those of the past. This would be an unfortunate habit to engage in these situations.
There is much we could say about the hyper-dimensional realities involved in choice making during chaotic events, but we wish to “cut to the chase” and give that which will be most practical. Perhaps some other time we can share with you our philosophical musings about your infinite nature and the infinite possibilities that reside within you. However, for now, let us be a little simplistic and give you a formula to recognize and create opportunities for new life and a new destiny when they present themselves to you.
Assuming that you have entered a transition state of consciousness and that you have befriended the void point and are more or less comfortable with the great uncertainty of your situation, this is what we suggest.
Be curious and expect miracles.
By entering a state of curiosity you engage an aspect of your mind that is free to move unfettered by expectation. It becomes very much like the mind of a child, and it is this innocence—which is not the same as childishness—that allows you to enter a vibratory state of consciousness, which greatly benefits you.
By holding the expectation of miracles you release the power of creation within you, and to the extent that you accomplish this you will find increasing incidences of serendipity, coincidences of benefit and unexpected treasures, whether they be physical in nature or mental and emotional.
This combination of curiosity about what will happen next joined with an expectation of miracles will move you rapidly from the void point to a new life, a new creation, regardless of what might be happening for those around you.
During collective transition states of consciousness it is helpful to remember that each person is the creator of his or her own reality, and in the midst of chaos people will make different choices and enter different personal realities.
Do not be swayed by those who enter lower vibratory realms. You cannot save them from themselves. Look upward and live upward with curiosity and an expectation of miracles, and even in the gravest of situations miracles can, and will, occur for you.
One of the greatest difficulties for embodied beings is the transition state of consciousness you call death. This is due to the fact that all perceptual markers, including the five senses, disappear. If a person identifies solely with his/her material existence, he or she will find this transition state to be most difficult. This is because what she or he identified with no longer exists.
Although the physical world continues on, there is no input into consciousness from the five senses. It is as if the world has vanished and the body along with it. The great I Am, the central feature of transcendent consciousness, no longer receives information from the body, the five senses, or the external world. This can be deeply disturbing and disorienting for someone who has not directly experienced the other realms of his or her being.
Metaphorically speaking, you are like a vast tree, a Tree of Life, with many branches and many, many leaves and blossoms, and your current physical existence is just one of these leaves and one of these blossoms.
When a person passes through the transition state of consciousness you call death there are several options. If you are in a spiritual tradition the central figure of which is a guru, avatar or savior, you can follow the path of this being into the vibratory realm of his/her consciousness. In some religions this is known as heaven.
If you follow the path of a guru, avatar or savior understand that you are entering into his/her heaven, her/his vibratory attainment, and by necessity you enter also into his/her limitations in consciousness.
From our perspective the universe is infinite in nature, and by this we refer not to external space but to the interdimensional realities of your universe, and there is no single being in existence, from our experience, who understands and embraces all that is.
If, however, you wish to join your guru/avatar/savior in the death realms we have a few suggestions. One is to mentally call upon his/her name. This is an ancient understanding encapsulated in the Egyptian term Ren, meaning name. When you call upon the name of a spiritual being an aspect of him/her is compelled to move toward you.
If, in that moment of encountering your guru/avatar/savior, he or she deems you worthy, you will be taken by him/her into his/her heavenly realm.
For those of you in eastern spiritual traditions there are mantras connected with specified deities. Chanting these mantras mentally during death, or in the death realms, has the same effect.
For those of you who are not part of a spiritual tradition that follows a guru, avatar or savior, then the transition state of consciousness called death offers other possibilities.
As with the other two transition states of consciousness, the death realm has a void point, and its dominant features are stillness (silence) and darkness. All possibilities exist within the Void, but no actuality is in existence. It is like the acorn of an oak tree. The oak, the giant tree itself, is potentially within the acorn, but it does not yet exist.
So when you find yourself in the Void, which you will recognize by the fact that you are utterly alone in darkness and utter stillness, know that you are in the central nexus of your creative powers.
What you choose to create next will determine the course of your destiny and what worlds you will inhabit or realms of existence you will reside in. This is a critical juncture.
Many persons frightened by the darkness move to the light prematurely. And what they do not realize is that in their yearning they create the light. A portal opens before them, like a tunnel, and they can move into this tunnel of light, encountering those they have known before, thereby entering back into embodiment or other vibratory realms of existence without having fully understood the consequences. This is certainly one option open to you, and one that is often taken.
Another option, however, is to remain at the void point, residing in the Void itself, becoming aware of your Self as pure consciousness—transcendent to all phenomena.
If you reside in this state of awareness long enough without the need to create something, you will discover your identity as the great I Am. And from this point of awareness you can choose the circumstances of your embodiment. You can choose the worlds you will inhabit or the realms of consciousness where you will reside.
This latter method gives you the greatest opportunities, though it is the most difficult for most people. And the reason for this difficulty has to do with the fact that most humans find it uncomfortable to not have a body. The yearning for a body and the experience of the material world often draws a person from the Void prematurely.
In summation, due to the intensifying phases of the Chaotic Node many of you will find yourselves in transitional states of consciousness. Regardless of what level you find yourself engaged in, whether it be your personal life, the collective experience, or the transition state you call death, know that you are the creator of your reality.
