I've been a big fan of James Redfield for years who wrote the Celestine Prophecy series of books. If you haven't read the Celestine Prophecy books, they're centered around synchronicities, spiritual insights and awakenings. I don't have his latest book, "The Twelfth Insight" yet, but I'm going to order it today.
I'm also going to start reading the series from the beginning because it's been a few years since I've read it. A movie came out a few years ago called the Celestine Prophecy, but unbelievably I haven't seen it yet. I'm going to see if our video store has it, and will be getting it as well.
Why all the excitement about James Redfield? Well, I got a notice in my email, that a James Redfield had followed me on twitter. What?! Surely not THE James Redfield! But it was!! I went to the link from his latest tweet, and below is what I read.

Beginning on April 14, a predicted second phase of Unity Consciousness is due to enter the world according to the Mayan Calendar and other prophecies. Again, this deeper spiritual consciousness is something that we can feel personally and see operating synchronistically in the outer world. Remember, this Unity Consciousness, called a 9th wave of divine creation by the Mayans, is predicted to come into our perception in a series of in phases. The first phase, called a Seeding phase, began on March 9 and was characterized by the expansion of the democracy movements in the Middle East and a new emotional empathy with those suffering from the shocking earthquake in Japan and the economic turmoil, especially in the US. The second phase, due to arrive on April 14, is called the Germination phase.
Obviously, this new consciousness is what I have been calling the Twelfth Insight, and I have pointed to the necessity for all of us to "Tune in" or open up to the emerging energies of this spiritual consciousness as though we are -- as the Mayans suggested with the names of these phases -- cultivating a consciousness within ourselves like a farmer would cultivate a plant. This week, let's offer our prayer and visualization toward enhancing and uplifting this process. Join us as we seek to bring the arrival of this new consciousness more readily into public awareness in a way that transcends the fear, pain and anger so many are holding onto.
Wow, how very synchronistic!! I got a crazy wave of goosebumps when I read this and also when I read other articles on their website CelestineVision. In my last post, I compared the awareness of my life's purpose to a cutting from a plant with no roots, but finally feel as if I' ve sprouted some roots. According to the Mayans, March 9 (my daughter Andi's birthday, how synchronistic!) was the beginning of the Seeding Phase, and April 14 begins the Germination Phase. Maybe a seed is what I was, not a cutting, but I was close!
Another strange synchronistic date for me is December 21, which is also a Mayan prophecy date, the big one, which some have misinterpreted as being the end of the world but in my opinion is more along the lines of the beginning of a new level of spiritual consciousness.
On December 21, 1984, I was the victim of a very brutal attempted murder and rape that took place in my own house while I was in college. I repressed the memory of the rape for 17 years (it happened while I was unconscious from multiple head and brain injuries), and when it finally bubbled to the surface nineteen years later, I thought I was going insane.
This incident is what triggered me to seek out help. I was led, very synchronistically I might add, to getting my Reiki degrees and learning about energy work. Maybe I'll write about that story some day, it might be good for me, although will undoubtedly be disturbing for readers.
Also, I ran across one of my old notebooks from years ago where I had "Lightworker Studio" written all over the page. Wow, trippy. Maybe I'll change my biz name to Lightworker Studio and start to live my life like somone who believes, like someone who's sprouted roots, rather than someone who just says the words.
So anyway, I'm a little blown away. I wonder what will happen today? Expecting synchronicities is how to keep them coming, according to the Celestine Prophecy.
"Live every moment of every day with awareness and intention." I think this will be my new tag line that I'm going to repeat to myself over and over so I don't doze off again.
Have a good one!
