Happy New Year and what an auspicious year it promises to be! We are excited to bring you a new set

We are offering a reduced cost January special of this new set of seven essences as our way of supporting you to be all you can be in this new time.

Pam is participating in a free multi-speaker Telesummit which begins January 28th.

You can sign-up for this by going to the Guardian Gateway page on our website. You don’t want to miss this opportunity to receive the guidance and help that is available to you.

We have many classes coming up in this New Year that are sure to inspire, inform and transform. You can learn about classes in Vermont, California and Minnesota by visiting us on our website at Partner Earth Education Center. You also may want to take a class with one of our Associate Teachers. You can find these classes listed on our website at the Nature Renaissance Collective .

Pam has been interviewing for her 2013 PLANT SPIRIT HEALING APPRENTICESHIP which is already half full. Call now for an interview to ensure a spot in this highly acclaimed program.

We hope to see you in this coming year at Sweetwater Sanctuary, a place where renewal, restoration and repose is possible. Here, while being held within the exquisite beauty of nature, your heart can open, your spirit can fly and you can come home to yourself.

Our True Essential Nature by Pam Montgomery

Solstice 2012 has come and gone without much apparent change, at least on the surface, but a shift is most definitely afoot. According to the Mayans, who have kept a long term calendar spanning 26,000 years this is the end of a long count which is one full “sun”. This particular long count ending is the end of the fourth sun. We have entered a new long count cycle of 26,000 years emerging into the fifth sun.

In the Hindu scriptures this time marks the end of the Kali Yuga which is considered a dark age or what some refer to as the Iron Age when we are the furthest from God. The word Kali in Sanskrit means strife, discord, quarrel or contention. During this Yuga we experience this both internally and externally. Astronomically speaking our Sun and the star Sirius are in an elliptical orbit with each other and we have been at the farthest ends of the two ellipses for the last few thousand years which is the darkest place within the orbit. As we progress on this orbit our Sun and Sirius move closer together into what is known as the Dwapara Yuga or the Bronze Age where there is a greater infusion of light. During this new era internal conflict is eliminated and we have the opportunity to stop our personal war on ourselves. We begin to know what it truly means to love oneself.

Astrologically speaking we are moving out of Pisces and into the sign of Aquarius. This is called the Procession of the Equinoxes which is the length of time (approximately 2,150 years) it takes for the vernal equinox to move through an astrological sign. Aquarius is a fixed air sign which brings about powerful transformation by always seeking the truth in ourself and others. As our solar system moves through the Milky Way Galaxy we come into different galactic alignments. We are just now aligning with the center of our galaxy at the same time that we move through the photon belt or most concentrated galactic light where we literally become more “enlightened” as we experience a wider band of light frequency.

Now that we have an understanding of what is actually happening during the most written and talked about time frame in our modern history what does this mean for us personally, socially, planetarily and galactically. It is clearly a time of enormous change which some are referring to as “The Shift” where a “tsunami in consciousness” is available to us. We have an opportunity to experience the love vibration within ourselves which radiates into our external environment where we have a greater capacity to love one another unconditionally, then radiating even further to Earth where our love for Lady Gaia prevents us from destroying her and further still our radiant love reaches other stars in our galaxy so that when we gaze upon the stars at night we experience the love returning to us – As Above so Below begins to live within us. We are poised to shift into the remembrance of the Truth of our being expressing our true essential nature while walking our unique path.

Prayer for Remembering the Motherlode

by Clarissa Pinkola Estes

We do not become healers. We came as healers. We are! Some of us are still catching up to what we are.

We do not become storytellers. We came as carriers of the stories we and our ancestors actually lived. We are! Some of us are still catching up to what we are.

We do not become artists. We came as artists. We are! Some of us are still catching up to what we are.

We do not become writers, dancers, musicians, helpers, peacemakers. We came as such. We are! Some of us are still catching up to what we are.

We do not learn to love in this sense. We came as love. We are love! Some of us are still catching up to who we truly are.

NOW is the time to catch up to who we truly are as the heavens and earth fully support us to be all we possibly can be.
