Many Worlds: Timelines And Destinies
Here we are, at a crossroads in history! How did we get here, and where do we go from here? These are the questions many of us are asking ourselves these days. To begin with, we are each on a timeline heading out toward a future outcome. These individual timelines are directed by our personal choices, but as a whole, they create a collective timeline as well.
There is a difference between fate and destiny, however. Fate is the default destination of our lives. It is the result of the tangle of unconscious choices we have already made. Many of these choices are even the legacies of our ancestors before us. Like a bowling ball barreling down the lane, our lives have momentum in a certain direction, based on every decision we have ever made. When those choices are fueled by fears, or past trauma, they funnel us into a fate defined by those parameters. If I make a choice to keep you happy, for example, because I, like my mother before me, fear being alone, I have chosen a world where my happiness is now contingent upon yours. Further, from this place I will only attract people into my life who are never satisfied, and believe it is my duty to keep them happy, so I continue to act out this drama. This is the “world” I have chosen to live in. As long as I have this fear, this is my fate. Destinies, on the other hand, are chosen consciously. They require addressing the fears and imprints that keep us in these redundant default pathways, and making conscious choices to step free of them, instead.

To Heal is to Step into Infinity
When we are born we arrive as an envelope of conscious light wrapped around, and connected to, a tiny naked body. We come complete with all the basic hardware necessary for survival but it takes another 20 years or so before our brains and bodies fully develop. In that time we have, and do not have, a whole array of experiences that shape who we will become. Because they are interrelated, each experience we have creates a matrix of changes within our bodies, minds and souls.
Imagine, for example, that you are a child born to parents who are afraid of intimacy or uncomfortable holding you when you cry. Instead of picking you up and soothing you they hastily place you in a crib, walk outside and shut the door. They have even read that this is what to do when your baby cries. Many studies have shown, however, that when a baby is held and soothed a whole cascade of genes that shape our immune and nervous systems are activated giving us high resistance to stress and illness; those genes are not activated in those who were never held, making them more prone to illness and nervous disorders in maturity.

Who Is Doing The Math Here?
Isn't it interesting that there are 52 weeks in a year and 365 days in a year and both these numbers are divisible by 13 (ok so there is a day left over in 365/13) but we choose a 12 month calendar year?! If we made our months 28 days, the cycle of the moon, we would have exactly 13 months... What is with this 12 months of varying day lengths calendar being the "solar" calendar?? What is so solar about it?! It just isn't Lunar...
