There is so much speculation going on right now about what it will mean for us to collectively pass through the “Dark rift, a mystical term used by the ancient and indigenous groups in the beautiful lore they have foretold to describe a four year purification process we are entering into that will bring about a harvesting of souls.






We seem to accept this term, dark rift, because we know that we are at a tipping point. Something has to give and the time is now.


We can all feel extreme imbalance and disharmony, yet so many of us do not know exactly how to proceed on our own, to be the change we wish to see. Mysteries are a secret or an unsolved problem.


They are also considered to be awareness beyond natural perception.

Awareness is the key.

Here is what we do know…


This Galactic Alignment and going through the Dark Rift is a special, rare cycle of possible transformation. And cycles are seasons. Cycles are merely a change from one hour to the next, day to night, lunar tides, winter to spring, ice age to global warming.


There are cycles of one second to cycles of 250 million years, just like there are atoms and there are stars. These changes of season keep evolution continually moving. There are cycles within cycles, even within us going on in each present moment.


This tipping point is now clearly identified as extreme EGO gone awry. Everything we have to learn from ego has definitely run its course. We know by example and experience repeated over and over through history what works and what disturbs the delicate balance of the eco system.


And over time, we have forgotten who we really are.


This mystical passage is a quest as each of us started out from very conception, first cultivating the cells of our heart before all else, and here we are now about to align with creation itself, the great central heart.


It is the heart that purifies, heals, and makes all things whole. The heart transforms all. In wholeness, or centeredness we are most powerful and excel in whatever we chose to focus on. In centeredness we are working from our highest states of love., our most powerful aspect of ourselves.


Centeredness is symmetrical, harmonious, all aspects of love seeking to create infinitely.


Ego is asymmetrical, disharmonious, and finite on the polarity scale This is where the 1%, Illuminati, religions who teach they are the chosen children, or any kind of group supreme ego thinking, makes its big mistake. There is no person “better than” anyone… ego is limited, illusion, a test of self.


Ego in groups can generate massive painful damage from ignorance and disharmony.


Evil, which is ego going too far, means that which generates disharmony. The good news is that healing takes far less time than the time it took to cause dissonance to begin with.


Pure awareness works fast.

Awakening right now

is about breaking free and moving

beyond the limitations of the ego state.

The realization we will have to work through, like inner alchemy is a knowing that not only are we in a garden that is mother earth, we are the garden.


We are like the fruit of the tree. Some fruit takes in greater sunlight and excels. Other fruit that resists is not ready to move to ripeness of knowing infinity. It will fall to the ground and cycle through for another growing season. It is said that the awakening process is like the ripening of fruit.


We are the eco system itself, where there is a delicate balance.


Just making that statement, that we are the eco system itself immediately brings a state of reverence for all things, all kingdoms, a connectedness, and deep sense of responsibility. It changes our perspective compelling us each to seek out and actively strengthen the weaker links, as a part of us.


Amazing how a few words can create an inner shift so easily! This realization of clarity is so empowering because once we know this and feel this on all levels, we no longer wish to compete or dominate over anything. We have an overwhelming desire to support every living thing on its path so that all will prosper as it is meant to.


This is living in centeredness, or higher vibration. We will see the kingdoms that are right behind us and those of higher vibration ahead. We can actually meditate on this now… it is very AWE inspiring.


Apocalypse actually means “the revealing” of true reality.

The Hopi Indians say that passing through the dark rift will be most difficult for those heavy in ego. The ones who are more centered will have a much easier passage.


Travel lightly and prepare from within. There is no easy way or escape by digging bunkers. So, this dark rift may be “a dark night of the soul” for a majority. This is a journey in and of itself from which we will all experience inner alchemy.


Welcome to the 4th dimension, the dimension of reflection, reassessment, purifying, transformation, wholeness, and possible empowerment.


Explained this way, there is no mystery at all.
