The Dissolution of the Old World….
In this message we wish to give you some specifics regarding the financial and earth changes that are now upon you. We had hinted at the probability of this in previous planetary messages, but now the probabilities have become realities. The main focus of our intent for this communication appears toward the end when we will share what we feel you can do, individually, to ride the storm.
The Current Financial Crisis
Those who have created/sustained the dominant planetary economic system are now finding themselves with their “backs against the wall.” This is because the system, as it exists, is not self-sustaining. It is a form of imprisonment and is not in attunement with the shifting frequencies of consciousness that are taking place (albeit embryonically) on earth. And so financial institutions are attempting to re-organize themselves. But this is an attempt to perpetuate that which cannot be sustained. They are simply trying to re-arrange cards in the House of Cards.
But their attempts will ultimately be futile. This is because the current economic system is based upon greed, lies, control, and manipulation, and these thought forms, these cultural paradigms, are not in alignment with the new consciousness that is arising. What you are witnessing is the dissolution of that which needs to pass away, but that which will take its place has not arisen, and so it is a very frightening passage for those marooned in 3-Dimensional reality.
The financial situation is complex and interconnected. The difficulties currently experienced in both the United States and England will affect the entire global economy. These will be difficult times in terms of monetary considerations, but paradoxically these can be extraordinarily uplifting times spiritually.
We anticipate further deterioration of the financial markets in the United States, Europe and Asia. The corporate structures responsible for perpetuating the dominant economic paradigms will find themselves on very flimsy ground. This will unquestionably result in the loss of jobs, real income, and an increase of suffering for individuals. Our advice is get to know your community, your immediate surrounding community, because as the system implodes, it will be local relationships that matter.
Another element that makes this period particularly volatile is that your perception of time is changing. Culturally perceived time is speeding up and more seems to be happening in less time. This is occurring both for individuals and for the culture as a whole. This rapid movement and changing of events shall become faster and faster.
You are entering a relentless pace in which your perception of time will increasingly accelerate. Because your perception of time is speeding up, and the events within those timeframes are increasing in number, many will enter a kind of shock, a state of disbelief. Specifically, it is unimaginable that the economic system can deteriorate so rapidly! What do you do when money is scarce and the things you are used to in your life are hard to acquire? These are critical questions.
Collective humanity is at a pivotal point for it is at the cusp of new cultural paradigms — a shifting from fixation on 3-Dimensional reality into a realization of higher dimensions and the possibilities that will be open to all as a result.
While such a shift of cultural awareness sounds inviting, the actual process is extremely chaotic, which is what you are now in the midst of.
Factors of Novelty
As chaos increases, over the next several years, you can expect to see radical increases in what could be described as factors of novelty. By novelty, we are referring to a concept borrowed from your physics. We are not using the term as it is used in your mainstream culture, which is essentially the mindless pursuit of that which is new and different to fill in the void created by emotional desperation and emptiness.
Novelty, as we are using the term, refers to unintentional and unanticipated changes within a system. These changes can be positive, negative or both.
The term, factors of novelty, refers to the phenomenon that incidents of novelty exponentially increase as systems enter into a state of chaos. And the probability for chaos increases when you have many different systems interacting at accelerated rates. Unexpected results and situations, that were never anticipated or intended, can and will arise. As novelty increases worldwide, it will create mental and emotional strain for many individuals — primarily due to the fact that the paradigms that they have used to navigate through life will be (and are) dissolving right before them.
As difficult as these times are, and as difficult as they will be in the near future, there is an evolutionary catalyst within all of this.
New ways of thinking and new ways of generating resources have to be created if humanity is to survive. The old ways simply cannot continue. This is because they are not self-sustaining; they are intrinsically damaging to life; they are based upon lies and manipulation, and they are out of alignment with the new spiritual energies that are entering the scene. Nevertheless, those who have created and sustained the lies are doing everything in their power to keep the House of Cards intact.
Your evolutionary opportunity in all of this is to pass through the storm by living (metaphorically speaking) in the center of the hurricane — the eye of the storm — where it is calm. We will offer some suggestions for this in a moment, but let us turn our attention to the Earth Changes, for they are upon you.
In previous communications we said that the melting of the polar icecaps and the glaciers would accelerate faster than scientists anticipated, and indeed, this is the case. This shall continue to accelerate and the models of weather generated by computers will not accurately predict the changes. Like everything else upon your earth, all changes shall accelerate. From our perspective we see an increase in the intensity of hurricanes, and we see them arising in times when they do not traditionally occur. There will be an increase in tornados and aberrant weather. Alterations in the cycle of the seasons (where fall and winter patterns occur in spring and summer and vice versa) will continue to escalate. Plants and animals that have based their life rhythms upon these seasons shall be increasingly confused. Due to these and other climatic changes (as well as earthquake and volcanic activity), we anticipate increasing food and water shortages over the next two decades.
Another critical element in this evolutionary stew is the upcoming Presidential elections in the US. For better or worse this Office affects not just the United States, but also the entire world, and while there are differences between the two camps, in some fundamental areas they are the same. Those who pursue the Office (from within the ranks of the two major political parties) may indeed have their personal visions of what America and the world can be, but they are like pawns on a chessboard, and the ones who move the pawns are largely unseen. Unfortunately, their agenda is not the health and wellbeing of the United States, nor of the world. Their agenda is the consolidation of power. And the confinement and imprisonment of the human spirit that results from their blind pursuit of earthly power does not concern them.
An unprecedented collision of forces is now upon you. The economic and political situations, conjoined with earth changes are creating a crack in the façade. This façade is nothing less than the cultural, economic, political, and religious illusions and delusions that people have “bought into.” More and more individuals will see through the lies, simply because things will fall apart. The curtains that were hiding the lies will fall. This is not a graceful process. But the old ways of being and doing must come to an end, in order that new ways can take root.
It shall be increasingly difficult to perpetuate the old world in the same ways it has been perpetuated. And by this we mean both the old world of your civilization and the old world of your own personal lives. As the wave of spiritual evolution accelerates, those who insist upon living in the old paradigms will find it increasingly difficult. Fear and paranoia will be the tone of the day, from the minutest aspects of personal life to international relations. This “tug of war” between that which wishes to remain locked in place, tugging against those forces that wish to open the world to new possibilities shall indeed become a surrealistic experience.
The evolutionary pressures upon individuals and society are extraordinary, and those individuals who are less centered (psychologically imbalanced) may experience an increase in irrational behaviors. Many countries around the world are already seeing a rise in irrational acts and unusual crimes.
We have spoken about it on numerous occasions, and although it is very simple, it is a powerful ally. Your word for it is appreciation and what we mean by this is the ability to appreciate the smallest things in your life as well as the large things.
Appreciation is a fascinating vibrational field with multiple effects. As you watch your economic system go through its metamorphosis, as you watch earth changes increasing and the stresses upon those around you escalating, including the escalation of stress on yourself, remember the doorway of appreciation. All you have to do is step into this field and the disturbances around you will be less able to effect you negatively. The situations you are dealing with might not change, but your emotional response to them will be of a higher order. And you will be more resourceful in how you deal with the challenges you are facing.
Were we to describe, in detail, the probable future in terms of negative events, it would be overwhelming. That is not our intent, and so we will not discuss it. What we wish to discuss is escape velocity. How do you escape the negative, imprisoning forces that continue to confine you and the human spirit? The most efficient and simple way is to cultivate appreciation — as ridiculous as that may sound in the face of the immense challenges facing your earth. Appreciation is a key that will unlock the doorway to the new world, even as the old world dissolves and falls apart, as it must.
As the spiritually driven evolutionary forces increase, and the rip in the fabric of your civilization becomes clear to more and more individuals, there will be a tendency for those who are fixated on 3Dimensional reality (without access to the higher dimensions of themselves) to enter into a state of mental and emotional shock, a kind of numbness. You can recognize these numb people because they will walk and talk like normal, but they are like zombies, half aware, half alive. Have compassion for these individuals because they are caught between the old world that is passing away and an uncertain future that has yet to be born. Have compassion, yet be wary of them. Do not let them seduce you into their numbness and fear.
If you learn to live in appreciation, you will enter a domain, a vibration that will carry you through the chaos of these times. You will find a type of solace and comfort, and the vibrational rate of your energy body will increase. At some point you will reach what we call escape velocity. You will easily step out of the illusions and the lies of the old world. You will see them for what they are, and you will become a joyous co-creator of a new world that is being birthed even as the old world passes away right before your eyes.
The Hathors through Tom Kenyon
September 22, 2008
Orcas Island, WA
Thoughts and Observations from the channel, Tom Kenyon
When the Hathors gave me this particular planetary message there was no hint that the Wall Street fiasco was coming. At least I hadn’t heard about it, let’s say that.
I am amazed at how quickly things are changing and I have to acknowledge that the Hathors were bang on (once again).
When I was in the eighth grade, my algebra teacher would always introduce a new section of the curriculum with a slight grin on her face. She would look down at the book and then up at the class with these words — “it’s going to get worser before it gets better.”
I think that’s what the Hathors are saying here as well. We are all in for a heck of a ride. But the strange thing about collective mayhem is that there are always islands of sanity, solace and comfort. I agree with them that we must find this within ourselves, and I agree with them that it is probably a good idea for us to get to know our neighbors.
As usual, the Hathors emphasize the importance of appreciation. They say at one point that we need to cultivate appreciation for the small things in life, not just the big. And as they have said previously, we need to learn how to create this feeling in the moment without having a specific reason to be happy.
That may seem odd to some, choosing to experience appreciation when nothing has happened to make us feel that way. But essentially what the Hathors are saying is that appreciation is a specific vibration of consciousness and when we are in that vibration we are elevated. And I suspect that such skills as self-elevation (when many around us are in distress) will be an excellent skill to have.
Like all skill building, repetition and actually doing it (in this case, entering into appreciation) is the key. If you are new to these Hathor messages, I encourage you to take a look at Ecstasy and the Heart. It is a very interesting and beneficial way of experimenting with the state of appreciation.
And although they do not mention it in this message, you would find their messages about the Holon of Balance and the Holon of Healing helpful. Descriptions of how to create Holons also appear in the Archives.
As many of you no doubt know, the Chinese word for transformation consists of two ideograms that translate as — danger and opportunity. There is no question that we are entering into dangerous times. But there are opportunities as well.
The evolutionary question is: will you, me, and we (the great collective) find the opportunities to create a new future for ourselves? Or will we get quagmired in the old world of perception and belief?
If the Hathors are right about this, and I think they are, we would all do well to cultivate more appreciation. Then perhaps, we will self-elevate enough to recognize that we live in an amazing universe brimming with possibilities even as those of us in the old world struggle with how to enter the new.
Note: The focus of the Hathors in the upcoming Stairway of Illumination Intensive in Seattle will be on the infusion of spiritual light into the seven major endocrine glands. The Hathors consider the infusion of light into the endocrine glands a crucial step in the process of personal ascension. This is the only Tom Kenyon/Hathor event this year, and it takes place October 31st through November 2nd. For more information about this workshop, go to the Calendar.
