I've seen a lot of signs lately of the heightened vibrations as 2012 closes in. As the earthchanges accelerate I notice a correlation in people. They're making changes, moving, letting go of old security blankets from the effect of the increasing wave. Although many appear reactive rather than deliberate they are signaling the Universe their willingness to change to have better. Even those on a spiritual path may drop their old studies & take up something new or nothing at all. People are paring down on materialism, lightening their loads, streamlining and downsizing. A wise guide warned me 30 years ago to not encumber myself with possessions but I foolishly ignored the advice and paid in time, money and energy over and over again until I realized I didn't own things, they owned me. Now I limit myself to what will go in my Jeep and really only need my laptop and small carry-on...and doubt those will make it through the Stargate? Once one consciously comprehends and dedicates to Ascension they realize how little they need. The paradox is that the Universe may suddenly surround you with great abundance, which you appreciate but remain unattached to. Just another sign of the emerging paradigm as we shift to the Age of Aquarius.
