January 2022 Ascension Energies Update

January's Ascension Theme: 2022: The Year of Cataclysm

January’s Keywords: Soul Expansion, Divine Oneness, Divine Liberation, Resolute Faith

Awakened Soul,

The Year 2022 will usher in cataclysmic changes in many ways. It is a year of new beginnings and manifesting our dreams by co-creating with Spirit. It is also about finding a more solid, realistic, footing to springboard to the next level of living, and the opportunity to find and strengthen interdependent, healthy relationships. However, there will be more upheaval, shock, chaos, surprises, and instability in the world that will impact us. The world is only going to look weirder and make no sense as the old timeline dissolves and flails in an attempt to survive!

The spiritual key is to keep adapting and embracing change while using our inner knowing, and having resolute faith on our soulful path. We are no longer living “normally” in an illusion of safety and control nor will we ever go back to pre-CoVID “normal” again. Please see my video below for more themes/predictions for 2022.

Being Awakened Souls who have now fully unplugged from the old paradigm (as of the 12:22:2021 Gateway) and are now embodying Oneness, we are here to use our newly found divine liberation (via karmic freedom) to create our lives with complete autonomy despite cataclysm.  Note:  Cataclysm means overwhelming upheaval, demolition, and events that bring great changes.

In 2022, Awakened Souls will feel that part of their purpose is to help transform human society into a sustainable way of living, existing in balance and harmony with our beautiful, loving Earth Mother.  

Many are now ready to manifest this in new, practical ways. This will seed a subtle yet powerful shift in overall human consciousness and help the collective escape previously perceived limitations.  

Here are the overall themes for 2022:

• Put away the Lightworker Warrior energy or the need to “hold the line”. There is no longer a need to be in the trenches as The Light has won. The old, wounded masculine will implode and unravel at an increased pace in 2022. You are free to move on! Release the Lightworker title and now embrace yourself as a Light Being.

• Your Mission Now is to live by example via the Spiritual Warrior archetype. You use your power to create with the flexibility of will, pivot as needed, and live from a place of love and light. This means rising above the chaos and division and not participating in it AT ALL. So release the egos needed to win and be right. This means staying out of any drama and not imposing your truth on others. Be your truth, speak your truth, and let the chips fall where they need to, relationships that seek to control you will fall away. Also, it means that you take care of yourself and your body which is your earthly temple. 

By embracing the Spiritual Warrior you hold yourself accountable and ensure your actions are in alignment with your values. No people-pleasing as you are free! Focus on this concept and make it your mantra. It is only when you are true to yourself that you are truly in your power. By being this beacon of light you will attract what you need, including abundance and healthy relationships that are in alignment with the True Self. 

• Follow the instinctual wisdom of the Mystic Archetype to make your decisions and weave your way through 2022. Do not listen to any outside advice that does not resonate with you or hold universal truth. You focused on yourself in 2021 and now know your needs. 

Trust that you are on the right path even if you cannot see all the details. Do not be distracted by drama, negativity, chaos or upheaval. You are here to hold the Light, not feed the darkness and shadow. It is of utmost importance that you do this starting in 2022 if you have not done so already.

During January we are activating and attuning to our Gold Star Chakra for further Soul Expansion which will bring certain skills online to help us move forward and leave apathy and hopelessness behind. We are entering the next cycle of the Age of Aquarius!

Now being engaged in our True Selves, we are fully accountable, responsible and thus increase our manifesting skills while finding deeper connections with our chosen tribes and communities.

In love, autonomy, and service,

Golden Spiral Ascension Group - Are you seeking a new Soul Family?

A monthly online group that provides YOU with evolutionary support!

Come journey with me as we witness the rebirthing of Oneness, the True Self and the Divine Feminine in ourselves and humanity! 

This group is for you if:

*You want more guidance, consciousness and spiritual support as you weave your way through the Planetary Awakening process and Age of Aquarius.

*You already are or feel called to be a Lightworker, Wayshower, Lightbearer and Awakened Soul then this group is for you.  

*If you want a more sacred and meaningful life during these chaotic times  

*You want more confidence, comfort, intuitive knowing and soulful purpose.

*You are looking for your soul family of like-minded Ascension Pioneers

*You want to embody and fully live The Sorcerer/Sorceress Archetype

During 2021 through 2031 there will be a massive re-birthing of the Divine Feminine within our world. This is the loving, flowing energy of balance, creativity, intuition, abundance and heart-centered spirituality. This time will also see the dissolution of old systems and an awareness of our connectedness to All That Is.

We are preparing for the next Golden Age that will begin in 2032. However many are unprepared and will find these 10 years confusing and hopeless unless one is willing to actively engage with and master the principles and laws of Divine Creation.

This group will be learning how to partner with the energies of the Divine Feminine and Divine Creation which directs us and connects us to a co-creative existence and infinite possibilities. This includes attunement and alignment with the 12 Spiritual Laws and 12 Chakras, respecting and adhering to the 5 Cycles of Creation, and increasing activation of our 12 strands of human DNA.

The Golden Spiral Group officially starts March 31st, 2021!  HOWEVER, YOU CAN JOIN ANYTIME!

Are you ready to join me for an exciting spiritual journey?  CLICK HERE for details!

You can join anytime, and opt in and out of each month as there is no recurring subscription.  You choose each month if you want to attend.
