Kin 212: Galactic Tone 4, Human/EB

Today is the 364th and final day of this 13-moon year... tomorrow, being the day of the Noosphere Pause/Day out of Time. This is a time across the planet when Mayan Daykeepers unite in the Spirit of remembering that we are all a part of the same ONE something that is the whole creation of being.

In celebration of this ending and the new beginning July 26, 2011 into the Year of the Wizard/Jaguar, I would offer the following thoughts for your consideration, about the True significance of the December 21, 2011 Mayan prophecies.

What do the Mayans believe as the significance of the December 21, 2011 date?

The prophetic meaning of the December 21, 2012 date as defined/understood by the Mayan culture is NOT about a cataclysmic ending, but instead, a new beginning and the remembering of what it is to be fully human (the intention for which we were created to be).

As defined by noted Mayan prophecy teacher, José Argüelles/Valum Votan, “The prophetic date, December 21, 2012 marks the crest of the 104,000 year galactic spiral density wave, an evolutionary shift point of unprecedented magnitude, the shift from mind to supermind and the ascent of spiritual-mental values over materialistic ones.”

My understanding is that December 21, 2011 is a pivatol point in time at which the “normal” on Earth becomes the human consciousness of the ONEness of all, and the recognition of the power of Spirit over the pursuit of materialism – our enslavement to consumerism… and, the point in time at which we can no longer deny that the good of the whole is the good of ALL as the ONE. If the greatest commandment is “to love one another,” what WOULD life be if our greatest desire was to Love one another as ourselves, so much so, that every action would be born of that intention? Heaven on Earth!

Will there be chaos? As with any change of such magnitude that would change human perceptions in such a significant way – to some, I believe it may appear as calamity, as in the "tearing down of strongholds" of long-held belief systems. Though, I also believe the perception of chaos will be only to the extent that one may cling to out-dated values of today’s more pervasive materialistic views. The Truth has always been spoken that we hold the power to create our own experience and to fulfill our dearest dreams. To the extent that one may hold fast to the real power of Love, may determine how easily one experiences this transformation. Though, everyone is enough as they already are, and we are all already worthy to receive the gift of becoming a new creation.

"After midnight the moon set and I was alone with the stars." ~Amelia Earhart (Kin 212, today is Solar birthday of Amelia Earhart, 1897)

Many blessings to all my Kin

ASK and you shall receive...

ASK. I am finding this to be one of the MOST important spiritual tools available to me – and surprised that it’s taken me so long to figure out. I always thought I WAS asking, when I was really only lamenting about the things I didn’t have.

I’ve heard it many times in my life – probably the first was, Matthew 7:7-8:

Matthew 7: 7 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.

A recent resource that shed greater light on this for me was from, “The Gentle Way” website at http://www.thegentlewaybook.com/, which offers encouragement on how to ask our Guardian Angel (out loud) for the “most benevolent outcomes.” This seemly small act done on my way to work over the past few months has been one of the best spiritual tools I’ve employed to maintain my personal sense of peace and connectedness.

I ask out loud for the most benevolent outcomes for myself, for my day, for those I come in contact with, and even other drivers I see on the road. It just seems to ripple out more each time I use it… and as I truly feel a deep desire that others I include experience a supernaturally wonderful day, I ask, believing it and thanking my Angel for it. It is such a simple way to support the energy of peace on earth, and reminds me that I have something important to offer to the world.

We are more powerful than we realize, and unlocking the power of our intentions is as simple and easy as sending love and goodwill.

Just ASK out loud, and see what happens!

Love in a Recipe - Mom's Chocolate Sheet Cake

One of the things I love about my Mom, is that everyone who enters the door is offered something wonderful from her kitchen - this is my favorite thing. This is seriously one of the best recipes in my entire collection - the fastest and BEST chocolate cake you will ever lay hands on. You just can't screw this up!

Mom's Chocolate Sheet Cake

The Cake...
2 Cups Flour
2 Cups Sugar
1 Stick Butter
5 Tablespoons Hershey's Cocoa
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
1 Cup Water
1 Teaspoon Soda
1/2 Cup Buttermilk
2 Eggs
1 Teaspoon Salt
1/4 Teaspoon Cinnamon
1/2 Cup Oil

First - preheat the oven to 400 degrees (that is not a typo).
Get a big sauce pan, you are going to mix the batter in there. Melt the butter with the oil, water, and cocoa and bring to a boil. Take off the stove immediately, and add all the dry ingredients, EXCEPT THE SODA. Dissolve the soda in the 1/2 Cup of Buttermilk, then add this, the eggs, and vanilla and mix till smooth. Pour batter into a sheet cake pan - those big pans that are a little deeper than a cookie sheet. (I line mine with parchment paper, or grease and dust it with flour.) Bake for 20 minutes ONLY, or until it springs back.

The frosting...
You are going to use the same saucepan, so rinse and start over for the frosting. This doesn't take long, and you pour it over the cake while it is still hot - only 5 minutes out of the oven... so I usually start this about 5 minutes BEFORE the cake is done.

1 Stick Butter
5 Tablespoons Hershey's Cocoa
1/3 Cup Buttermilk
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
1 Box (2 1/2 Cups) Powdered Sugar
1/2 Cup chopped pecans (optional)

Melt the butter with the cocoa til well dissolved. Add the buttermilk and vanilla - mix. Add the powdered sugar and keep this on a low burner... just to keep it from setting while you are mixing. By now, your cake should be out of the oven - add the nuts if you want them in the frosting - then pour this over the cake. (The frosting sets up like a homemade MMMMM fudge and holds all the moisture in the cake... will stay moist for days like that.)

OMG - Never baked this for ANYONE that they didn't go ape over it. You can leave out the cinnamon, though just a tad is unrecognizable - just "something" good people can't quite put their finger on. TRY IT.

I'm packing boxes for my move, and just couldn't bear the thought of not being able to find this recipe that I love so much. Hope you enjoy it. AND THANK YOU MOM!
