Week 49 runs from December 3rd to 9th, and is a 13/4 week in the world. This is also the final week of a 10-week-long cycle in which all the week numbers began with 4.
4 = restriction, limitation, work, how things work, order, details, system, identification, and breakthrough.
9 = endings, consequences, conclusions, drama, and deep emotions. 9 is the last number in the numeric spectrum, after which 10 brings us back to 1 again. (1+0=1). Note that 2016 is just around the corner, and it is a 9 Global Year.
49 adds up to 13, which is the karmic vibration of 4. This means that there are enormous lessons to learn this week. Karma draws to us what we need to learn, according to the laws of cause and effect.
1 represents change and new levels and beginnings, while 3 represents communication, media, appearances, shallowness, the ‘stage’, the arts, illusion, people, popularity, and population. 13/4 forces us to see the shallowness of our endeavors and activities, and how our understanding of ‘accomplishment’ is often limited and mundane. We are so much more than we think we are.
13 forces us to recognize the fact that we are not using our natural gifts in a way that could improve life on Earth. 13 forces us to see how we squander our time and resources instead of using them to help ourselves get out of our various ‘messes’, including the terrifying mess we have made of the natural world which is the basis of our physical existence – and out of this cruel and violent rut that we are trapped in.
In this system of competition and contest, (which is the basis of war), the losers hate the winners and the winners hate the losers which simply expands the hatred. The pain of war is so great and raw that the opportunity for forgiveness simply doesn’t arise. The class-system makes forgiveness impossible because it controls people by controlling our emotions. Forgiveness is emotional healing.
The horrific San Bernardino shootings occurred on December 2nd, 2015 which was a 13 day. (1+2+2+2+0+1+5=13). The very next day was the 337th (13) day of the year and the 1st day of week 49 (13). It was reported on that date that this was the 355th (13) mass shooting in 337 (13) days. There have been more mass shootings in the USA than there have been days. It certainly appears that 13 has a lot to teach us right now.
Also on that 13 day, December 2, the British Government’s decision to bomb Syria, despite massive protests, came with so many reminders of George W Bush in the run up to the Iraq war, without which ISIS would not exist. “If you’re not with us”, George Bush famously said, “you’re with the terrorists” … which was echoed by David Cameron telling MPs that if they voted against bombing Syria they were “terrorist sympathizers”.
A terrorist is someone who inflicts fear, death, shock, and awe on others for their own purposes – and are also the product of cause and effect. What they look like or where they come from does not make them any more or any less a terrorist. Terror is the most heightened form of fear. We cannot eliminate fear (or any of our emotions) and still be fully aware. Emotions are our response to experience and are a vital form of intelligence.
Perception is a major aspect of Free Will, but our senses are being highly manipulated and belittled at the present time, the purpose of which is to cast doubt and confusion; to stir up the emotional cauldron to the point of explosion – because that’s what emotions eventually do when they cannot move freely. This furthers the policy of DIVIDE and CONQUER, through which this archaic system remains in power.
The 2 energy of the new millennium has brought transparency to Earth, not only through the technology of these times, but also through our own evolving powers of observation, intuition, and discernment. 2 represents CONNECTION, (starting with 1+1=2), and is heightening our ability to go more deeply into detail, connect the dots, and see a bigger and more accurate picture – of the maddening complexity with which we are dealing.
However, 2 is also the number of PERSUASION, and we need to be aware of how this aspect is being used to inflict maximum fear upon the population so that we will rally around those who claim most persuasively, that only they can protect us. And with all the nazi references jumping into the mainstream just lately, this is what Hitler’s Reich Marshall, Hermann Goering had to say at the Nuremberg Trial after world war 2:
“Naturally, the common people don’t want war. But after all, it is the leaders of a country who determine the policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag people along whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. This is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and for exposing the country to danger. It works the same in every country.”
This week, US presidential contender, Chris Christie, suggested that we may already be in the midst of world war 3. On the contrary, what we are in the midst of at this precise time in the human journey is an enormous evolutionary opportunity to PREVENT world war 3.
A millennium is a cycle of 1000 years. So let’s look at where humanity was a thousand years ago and see how that time frame is connected to these early days of the 2000s.
That is when the crusades – the religious war of Christians against Muslims began. History tells us that it lasted for 200 years, and yet that very same war is still going on today. Without genuine forgiveness, or even the intent to forgive, wars cannot and do not end. They calm down. And then they flare up again – because the emotions involved are not allowed to heal.
The Crusades were the original ‘holy wars’ brought about by Pope Urban II in response to the Muslim capture of Jerusalem. But 1000 years later, Pope Francis, has quite an evolved perspective on the possibility of PEACE, which he expressed while traveling throughout Africa this week, visiting mosques as well as churches. Although he did not mention the crusades by name, he did say this in an in-flight press conference after visiting Bangui, Central Africa:
“It is a historical fact that there have always been wars of religion. And we too have to ask forgiveness. Catherine de Medici was no saint! Then there was the Thirty Years War, and the Eve of St Bartholomew… We too have to ask pardon for cases of fundamentalist extremism, for the wars of religion. Today I was in the mosque and I prayed; and the Imam wanted to come with me to circle the little stadium where many people were not able to fit… And there, on the pope-mobile, were the Pope and the Imam. We could talk. As everywhere, there are people who have values, religious people, and there are people who don’t… But how many wars, and not only wars of religion, have we Christians waged? The Muslims were not responsible for the sack of Rome.”
Religion is only one factor in the global war machine. The issue today is OIL, and it has been this way since the industrial age started in Britain in the 1500s. And moving forward, the devastation in Syria today is a direct consequence of the invasion of Iraq and the competing multi-national oil and gas pipelines which carry that fuel into Turkey, Russia, and all over Europe.
2 is the number of sensitivity and feeling, and since we entered the 2000s almost 17 years ago, our emotions and senses have been rising within us in a way that makes us less controllable. The 2000s ushered in a new phase of the human journey in which individual freedom (and therefore equality) are the goals. 2 is the number of equality and fairness through the balancing of feminine emotion with masculine mind.
“You’ll never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have.” ~Bob Marley.
While fear can certainly stop us in our tracks, it can also spur us on. For instance, if a mother sees that her child is in danger, fear can produce astonishing strength with which, against all odds, she saves her child. In the face of danger, fear enables us to run faster or jump higher than we ever could without it. FEAR and COURAGE are opposite ends of the same emotional string which measures, interprets, and expresses our sense of security as we make our way through life. Fear is not something to be eliminated. It is something we need to better understand.
Concern, worry, anxiety, paranoia, and panic are all different forms and levels of fear. Terror is fear’s most heightened level. And very often, fear indicates that we are finally facing reality and developing the courage to act on our new intelligence.
“Many powerful people don’t want peace because they live off war.” ~Pope Francis
In the years leading up to 2020, a new phase of the journey into Free Will is beginning, which is being fought at every level by the ‘powers that be’. Not only is 2020 associated with vision, it also marks the end of our current decade, the 10s, in which we have an opportunity to BREAK THROUGH the karmic bonds which keep us locked in the ever-repeating past.
Last week – week 48 – brought a vast concentration of 3 energy into the world. 3 gives us the optimism (hope) to carry on – and to change things. We are in a position to stop the cycle of violence, stop repeating history, and finally learn the karmic lessons involved if we can just develop the WILL to do so. The Will is pure feminine energy.
Revenge produces more revenge, and simply feeds the never-ending cycle of war. War is NOT a solution. War is the problem. And let’s not forget at the end of this 8 year which emphasizes money and power, that war is a very lucrative business.
The desire for peace – which starts within – is the only way forward, along with patience for the time it takes to get results. 2 is the number of patience. Diplomatic rather than military strategies are needed. We need to understand the nature and various levels of fear, including paranoia and panic and how they are inflicted on us to attain compliance. To pretend we are fearless is to deprive ourselves of an essential sense – a vital component of our inner radar – the emotional range. Fear is not the problem. It is the denial of fear – which stems from the fear of fear – which keeps us compliant.
Ultimately, Free Will is the ability to feel our full range of emotions freely. Without this, we can never be fully aware. 2 is the number of UNITY, and it is this union between our masculine minds and feminine emotions – inner peace – that we are evolving to.
Be aware of the POLITICS OF FEAR, and why understanding our emotions reduces our vulnerability to those who will use our own fear against us. If we are prepared to OPEN our minds to the details and observe how they fit together, (or don’t fit), we see a bigger and more accurate picture of what is going on. Then, as previous beliefs get turned inside out, new understandings OPEN up. That’s basically what a breakthrough is – the opening of a blockage.
The problem is that we have been programmed to deny our feelings to such an extent that, in this open atmosphere, those old buried feelings are bursting out with no ability to reason. Old hatreds, from every ‘race’, buried for a thousand years and handed down generation to generation, are surfacing. Without an understanding of how emotion really works, this is very dangerous energy. Get away from it. Stay away from it.
At the same time, we are ALL dealing with our own old buried emotions that are trying to express themselves. And the only way we can do this without hurting ourselves or others is through inner acceptance – outer expression – and the guidance of loving intent.
When the 13 karmic energy is ignored, we become lazy, complacent, indifferent, judgmental, selfish, and disorganized, especially when it comes to looking at the larger picture (in all its detail, not just the surface chit-chat). Ignored 13 produces people who lack honesty, integrity, or the commonsense to put the necessary effort into gaining stability.
Ignored 13 energy creates ignorance. Ignored 13 energy leaves us having to work extremely hard for what we want because we are unable to see beyond “our way” of doing things. Ignored 13/4 is the energy of stubbornness. Also, when we do not care about the plight of others, our own ‘plights’ become ignored too, and then there seems to be no way out. This is what we are dealing with right now – the fear of being stuck with no way out. The purpose of 13 in this case is to push us into making the essential changes that we have been too afraid or lazy to make.
I end this with an inspiring quote, written this week by David Mayer de Rothschild in relation to the Climate Change Conference in Paris. He is a tireless advocate for Mother Earth, and I notice he even gives the word Nature a capital N.
“We have to learn to love Nature again. We need to feel Nature again. We need to recognise we are all part of the web of life, because without this realisation, we will continue to feel empty! It is the reason we are here on earth, to feel part of something bigger than ourselves!”
