It is a beautiful warm day outside and I am inspired to write a second newsletter this month. Today is Friday the 13th, a day that far beyond any human-generated, limiting, superstitious belief, brings our awareness to the number “13” , the galactic number of harmony and synchronicity shown us by the Maya (more on this topic in my next book that is underway). In my understanding, number “13” takes us to our next level of cosmic awareness, building upon the structure of “12”. “13” represents an opportunity to move beyond the constraints of our linear, 3-D thinking and celebrate the Spirit of All that Moves All in the Universe.
Spring is springing, birds are singing and snows are thawing, but perhaps not so quickly in the higher, northern parts of the planet, especially atop K2 shown above. Yet newness is in the air. K2 is called the northern king of the Himalayas. It is located in Pakistan and is the second highest mountain in the world (28,251′) after Mount Everest. It is also particularly called the “savage mountain”, but this does not deter aspiring climbers to risk their lives to claim the peak. It is not only the steepness of the ascent and the weather conditions of K2 that claim lives, but there is also a thinness of oxygen that challenges climbers to the nth degree. Climbing this or any other mountain is not for the faint of heart. Are we any different in our day-to-day existence?
Two major tectonic plates are colliding beneath the 1,500 mile wide range of the Himalayas: the Indian plate is pressing north upon the Eurasion plate causing movement in the mountains of some 45 mm per year. The range passes through India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, China, Bhutan and Nepal. In some places, pressures below the mountains are able to be released and move, while others are held back until a major earthquake explodes releasing its power above the surface, as we have seen most recently in Tibet, Nepal in 2015 and Kashmir in 2005. The mountains are ever shifting and geologists are striving to predict the next quake to help save lives.
Curiously, with all this movement of the Earth, a “new” gemstone was recently found in the foothills of the mountain K2 (see Mystic Crystal Revelations also). Aptly named “K2”, this stone has emerged at this incredible time of change to assist us with our own journeys of Ascension. And so it is with us: no matter our personal travails, we are each given challenges to overcome, mountains to climb. As we navigate our own shifting sands and pursue our goals, our faith in a favorable outcome for self holds us to the course. As Jesus, the Avatar of Love, said:
Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done.
Love and Blessings,
